Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.V.B.
January 1938


The four injunctions which I gave you earlier have done their work, have they not? You see yourself more clearly now and know yourself, for you have the various aspects of yourself more definitely visioned - the good, the bad, the true, the false.. the real and the illusion. This clearer vision - envisaging some aspects hitherto unrealized - will necessitate your living on the mountain top, and in the clear air there to be found to see life true, your task and your co-disciples as they are. You have needed this more definite discovery of yourself in order to advance towards greater usefulness. Some of this knowledge has come to you during the past year, awakening you to certain values, revealing to you many hidden things within yourself and others, and consequently bringing into your life new complications and emerging personal difficulties.

I shall have more to say to you later when the adjustments necessary to your chosen change of circumstance and of life have been made and quiet has settled down again. These periods of upheaval and rearrangement come at times - sometimes soul induced and sometimes as personality events. They must be lived through, the veiled lessons learnt and the possible expansions of consciousness induced. We facilitate or hinder these expansions by the moves we make; we hasten or delay our growth by our enacted decisions. The true disciple, however, proceeds upon his way at any cost and naught can arrest his progress on the Path.

I have asked myself what I can say to you at this time that will be of definite value. Four things - brief and to the point - come into my mind as I look at you and feel for you a sense of [277] gratitude for your past consecration to the Plan and a sense of hopefulness for your future service.

First: I would say - Deepen your consecration and put first things first. Let nothing and no one stand between you, the vision, the Plan and your fellow-disciples.

Second: Prepare for complications in your life, for now you travel not alone. Your life has been relatively free up to this time, but the choosing of a comrade must and does in every case bring other issues and other values into being. Upon the planes of soul and mind, you still must stand alone and if you grasp this from the very start you will not find the complications of any great importance. They will only evoke a greater emotional livingness and understanding; this you have needed much and this you now can have. This also you can handle wisely if you live upon the higher arc and do not descend into the world of glamor and illusion. Remember, my brother, there can be equality in love and purpose (from the basic and the essential point of view) but not equality of inner understanding or of point achieved upon the Path. The disciple can do much for the probationer from the angle of the soul. The probationer cannot do the same for the disciple.

Third: Go forth upon the future way with courage and no fear. Stand in strength beside your fellow disciples, intent with them upon the chosen path. They stand unfailingly beside you.

Finally, my brother, become more definitely a radiant center of magnetic life, fusing the people with whom you may work through love and understanding. That is a hard and difficult task for it means bringing together in the bonds of service many elements which might not otherwise fuse and blend. This involves an understanding, an analysis of human beings and a slow and patient work. As your work may grow and its boundaries extend, you will be faced increasingly with the perplexities and difficulties incident upon human relationships. These must be handled with impersonality, love and silence.

Seek to integrate others into the service of humanity by yourself standing in spiritual being and radiating love and wisdom. I repeat again for your consideration and help during the coming months the third phrase which I earlier gave you:

"Live on the mountain top and walk there with your
brothers. Keep the vision clear above the fogs of earth." [278]

Preserve your meditation as you are now doing. My blessing rests upon you.

NOTE: This disciple is working steadily in the Tibetan's Ashram.
