Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - I.B.S.
September 1937


What I have to say to you can be adequately covered as I consider with you the five rays which govern you in this particular life. Since I last communicated with you, your life has opened out increasingly along the lines of service to your fellowmen and to us. One word I would say to you in this connection: Let not that service take the place of your soul in your waking consciousness nor let the satisfactions - which inevitably come - supersede the longing for the bliss which the soul experiences and which produces a magnetic rapport with the world of souls. Live ever in the secret place of the soul and keep always silent.

You have for many years reflected upon the relationship existing between your first ray soul and your sixth ray personality. You have realized that for you (in this incarnation) only love and service must govern your life expression, if the ambition and pride of the first ray, and the fanaticism of the sixth ray with its glamor-producing characteristics are to be offset and balance achieved. This relationship is your major problem. Let us further complicate that problem by the recognition of the ray qualities of the three bodies! Perhaps, however, complication will be simplified and a study of the more detailed personality tendencies may reveal to you sources of strength and produce clarification. It is of value to know the lines of least resistance.

Your mental body is on the fourth ray and this can definitely be a help to you if the energy involved is rightly used, because - though it means the achievement of harmony through conflict - it also swings into action another second ray attribute, thus aiding in the work of "sweetening" your nature, if I may use such a banal word. As this ray controls your mental body, it places you, symbolically speaking, in the warrior caste and [255] leads you to fight, e'en if it be purely idealistically, or at times under the influence of glamor.

Your astral body is a real problem because it emphasizes the ray of the personality; it too is on the sixth ray. It should be remembered that the rays themselves have their secondary attributes and just as the sixth ray - expressed in your personality - can lead to the fanatical following of the ideal (whatever that may connote to you) so the same ray in the astral body produces the expression of devotion. In your case, this devotion constitutes for you the seed of selflessness. This devotion where you are concerned is not devotion to your own selfish interests but it is for you a great extroverting factor. It leads you along the way of service. When, however, two instruments or vehicles and the soul are on the same ray, then the problems of the right balancing of forces emerges and this has been very real in your case, has it not?

You have a third ray physical body. This gives you contact and brings you down to earth, a thing that a sixth ray person predominantly needs, particularly when highly developed. It aids you in expression upon the physical plane; it makes a focal point for the manifestation of the soul, for it is peculiarly the ray through which the third aspect of divinity sweeps into expression; it can produce the potency of personality expression but it can also prove a definite hindrance.

In summing up, therefore, it might be stated that your rays are as follows:

  1. The ray of the soul - the first Ray of Will or Power.
  2. The ray of the personality - the sixth Ray of Devotion or Idealism.
  3. The ray of the mind - the fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict.
  4. The ray of the astral body - the sixth Ray of Devotion.
  5. The ray of the physical body - the third Ray of Active Intelligence.

This will make apparent to you the lines of energy which are colored by the two major rays of our solar system: In your case they find their expression through rays 4 and 6, and through rays 1 and 3. This is helpful to know, is it not? [256]

One hint I will give you, brother of mine, at this time. Guard your health during the coming years and thus make increased service possible and also keep fluid in intent, in purpose, and in activity. As time goes on, you will comprehend to what I am referring.
