Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - D.L.R.
To  D. L. R.

July 1934


I am asking you to work in this group of students and aspirants for two reasons: First of all, because, through this technique of instructions, you can receive some aid in the treading of the Path if you choose to avail yourself of what I may have to offer, and secondly, because your particular type of mind and your trained experience will give to this group that balancing factor and that patient stability which it needs.

The group has passed through a crisis as a group. Certain of its members have likewise had peculiar testing and difficulties. These they have surmounted and from them they are learning the needed lesson. The subjective potency of what you have to give will help - if I may so express it - to bring the whole group up to par, and enable me more rapidly to integrate it, and fit it for an instrument for service. I begin this communication by stating this clearly, as the service you can render is to you of more value than the service that can be rendered to you. But the group and the training to which it subjects itself can give you much if you will try out the work for a year or so. [302]

No attempt is made authoritatively to impose restrictions on the students and their work, and all can cease from the endeavor at any time. A third reason for my putting you into this group is to put you in touch subjectively, as well as on the physical plane, with D. H. B. as he and you make good travelling companions. This is but a suggestion and a hope to be tested out by both of you, if you so will.

You have passed through one of those periods of quiet and of controlled inner growth which from time to time is part of the training of the disciple upon the Path. Now the fruit of that subjective experience, known only to you and to those who guide and watch the footsteps of all aspirants, must work out in exoteric service, rendered progressively on each of the three planes until it emerges into fruitful action on the physical plane. Bear this in mind as you attempt to work with this group of my disciples; make your mental rapport first, then your astral contact and leave the physical plane expression to take care of itself, for the lines it will take will depend upon the inner continuity of contact, and upon your sensitive subjective realization. This will take time, my brother. But there is no hurry in the realm of the soul.

The meditation work to be done by you should be for a while dynamically extroverted. I use these two words because they express the process to be followed by you for the next few months. Should you care to do so, I would suggest the following breathing exercise, to be followed by the meditation process below. All the work done should be controlled by the consciousness, centered and held steady in the head...

We will, at this time, refrain from using the highest head center in the breathing exercise, beyond recognizing it as the point from which you are working. The objective of this exercise is to integrate the three centers above the diaphragm, and so make the personality more magnetic, and more definitely responsive to the radiation of the soul.

For your meditation work I suggest the following procedure:

  1. First of all, do the breathing exercise, outlined above.
  2. Then, focusing the consciousness as high in the head as possible, sound the Sacred Word. [303]
  3. Then do the following brief and intensive visualization exercise:
    1. Imagine a path of golden light, leading from where you stand to a vast two-leaved door.
    2. Then see, rolling along this path a disk or wheel of rose, which you send forth and which eventually disappears through the door.
    3. Then send along the same track a disk of vivid green, and follow it by a disk of golden yellow, both of which disappear the same way.
    4. Then send a disk or wheel of a radiant, electric blue, which rolls along the golden Path but which does not enter through the door but remains there, hiding the door from sight.
    5. Picture then yourself as standing before the electric blue disk, having traversed the golden path and there meditating upon the following words:
      "I am the Way myself, the door am I. I am the golden Path and in the light of my own light I tread the Way: I enter through the door. I turn and radiate."
  4. You can then carry forward your own meditation, though refraining from any use of mantrams and from visualization exercises other than those indicated above by me.
  5. Sound the Sacred Word again, breathing it out upon the world from the highest point in your consciousness that seems to you possible.

Attempt this meditation once a day for the next few months as it will form the basis of the meditation which I can later give you.
