Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - D.L.R.
February 1937


You are learning the lesson of detachment with rapidity, and [312] you are gradually standing free from the clinging hands of others. Just as the Great Renunciation of the fourth initiation is made possible by the many lesser renunciations of many lives, consciously undertaken, so the many acts of spiritual detachment lead eventually to the severing of that final thread which involves the death of all personality attachments. Then only those relationships are left which are upon soul levels. Your task is to learn to differentiate between such spiritual detachments and those enforced detachments which are undertaken on higher levels of astral awareness. The problem of the disciple is to reach a point where he is not hindered or held back by any human being and yet so to handle himself as far as attitude is concerned that he hurts no one in the process of withdrawal. The outer personality claims of attachment are oft so powerful that their clatter and their rattle prevent awareness of the golden thread which links us with another soul. Likewise, over-estimation of another person can act as a real hindrance. The chains must break, leaving only a golden thread between each soul - a golden thread which cannot break.

Two things I would impress upon you at this time, and upon them I would ask you to work until the next period comes around.

First, deepen your power of expression and begin to train others through a more definite outer service. You have always been able to work subjectively with others. This has been one of your major assets in group work. You are mentally magnetic, and through a controlled astral body, you interfere not emotionally with that magnetic influence. This is, for you, an established habit and will persist; it is the result of many years of reflection and of thought control, plus (in this life) academic training. For the rest of your life seek to become magnetic through the written word, through identification with the one you seek to help, through the magnetic power of your mind, enhanced by your soul and contained and embodied in the form of written help. I am seeking your help in training aspirants to become conscious disciples. Give of that aid, and thereby achieve that magnetic usefulness which will greatly increase your power to serve.

Secondly, the following occult message will give to you, if [313] you employ the intuition, the indication of the next spiritual achievement ahead of you - one that can be quickly accomplished if there is right understanding, or which can be learnt with pain and difficulty if such understanding lacks.

"The key is found; and with the pressure of the hands in service of the light, and with a beating heart of love, the key is turned. The door swings open wide."
"With hasty feet the one who hastens towards the light enters the door and waits. He holds the door ajar for those who follow after. He thus, in action, waits."
"A voice sounds forth: My brother, close the door, for each must turn the key with his own hand, and each must enter through that door alone."
"The blazing light within the Temple of the Lord is not for all at the same moment or hour of the day. Each knows his hour. Your hour is now. So, brother, close the door. Remember, those behind know not the door has opened, or the door has closed. They see it not. Rest on that thought, my brother, and passing through the door, close it with care, and enter upon another stage upon the Way - alone and not alone."

I would change your meditation at this time, for the group meditation is intended to supersede the individual meditation in the majority of cases. I would however give you a brief exercise to perform which may help in the externalizing of your magnetic power... Do this exercise every day with slow and measured thought, and with no sense of haste and no looking for results. The results are inevitable if the exercise is faithfully and rightly carried forward.

Enter into a closer relationship with me, my brother. There are things which I can say to you in the moments of high meditation and at the time of the full moon approach.

This is all that I have to say to you at the present.
