Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - S.C.P.
June 1936


A new cycle is being entered upon by you, as it is by all in my group and for this you have been prepared and this you have earned. The world itself enters upon a new cycle at the [330] end of this year but does so unconsciously. Disciples enter upon cycles or, rather, register their effects earlier than the rest of humanity because their minds are somewhat awakened and subjective recognitions can be earlier accorded. This is a point which should be remembered and one which has a definite bearing upon the Science of Prevision.

It has been my wish to assign higher and more esoteric meditations but the time is not yet; it will be dependent upon two things:

  1. The amount of group integration which this band of disciples in my Ashram can manage to achieve.
  2. The power of the individual disciple to decentralize himself.

This decentralization is for you a major task, as it is for another of my disciples who is working at the same problem as you are, but from a totally different angle of approach. It should be interesting to both of you to help each other and see in what the differences consist and the entirely different effects which the same general outlook has upon two different ray types and personalities. Let me see if I can make myself clear to you for this matter is of importance.

It would not have been possible for me earlier to have enlarged upon this matter as you would not have understood the truth of my words nor would you have been able to profit by them. Even now I can only just touch upon the problems. It is peculiarly yours and that of R. S. U. You have, however, made so much progress in overcoming hindrances that my help is warranted. Forget not, my brother, that every disciple has some major characteristic which requires transmutation. Some know what it is and are working at it and the others fall into two main groups. They are either working furiously to bring about a general change in themselves and thus succeed in bringing their faults to the surface and they do it with such potency that they temporarily handicap their service. Or, secondly, they are overwhelmed and depressed by the discovery of their weaknesses. They resent being thus handicapped and the energy which should go towards the processes of transmutation is turned towards their lower nature in disgust, self-pity or hurt [331] pride. All this leads to loss of time and produces inevitably the over-emphasis of the personality. The problem with which you and R. S. U. have to deal and which you must eventually solve is, above everything else, the problem of decentralization. There is in both of you an over-emphasis of the "I" at the center of the stage. I am telling you nothing new when I say this, for you have been faithfully working at this decentralization for some time and making real progress. This, I, your friend and brother, tell you gladly. The emphasis upon the little self is, in your case, based upon three things:

  1. A realized sense of divinity, of the beauty of the life of the spirit, of truth and of the power of your ray life. It is due to the fact that you have - in past lives - achieved a fair measure of soul control. Note my words with care.
  2. A desire to impose upon the personality and to make the lower self to be in factual living what you know yourself to be on the higher soul levels. This is complicated by the desire that those you love should likewise recognize your divinity, your service and your power.
  3. Being primarily astral-buddhic, demonstrating as intuitional development working out in a high emotional reaction, your personality polarization is emotional, even though you function, as a soul, on the power ray. You have, therefore, a consequent weakness in the mental polarization. This I endeavored to aid you in correcting last year when I suggested that you studied more and did more mental work. Did you do this, my brother?

As I said above, R. S. U. has the same problem of being too much in the center of her own life stage, but her whole attitude and life presentation is the exact reverse of yours. You, realizing a measure of divinity, impose upon your personality in speech and desire what you believe to be the effects of divinity. You over-estimate the capacity of the personality to respond to this. She, realizing the same measure of divinity, is so conscious of the failure of the personality to express this, that she retires within herself and (if I may use a phrase of real ugliness) she there "wallows" in the sense of failure. This ability to see such failure and to sense at the same time the beauty of divinity is due to [332] her mental polarization which enables her to cast the light of the mind in two directions. She is largely an expression of the higher or abstract mind, invading the lower mind, via the soul. Yours is buddhic or intuitional reason, stimulating the astral-emotional nature, via the soul. In these two statements, you and R. S. U. have your problem clearly defined. The building of the antahkarana - more surely and more definitely - is the solution for both of you, plus a trained and cultivated self-forgetfulness. In some ways, the problem of R. S. U. is harder than yours because (through her sense of inferiority brought about by the second of the two capacities of the mind which casts its clear light upon the personality) she tunes in on the illusion of human failure - a gigantic thought-form - and also upon her racial sense of inferiority. Her distress is deep seated in her love nature. Yours is not so deep seated as it is not fed so dominantly from the mental plane.

The way out for R. S. U. is the cultivation of joy, as it brings release to others. Yours is by the right control of speech and the elimination of all reference to personality activities. This must be achieved, not by the processes of inhibition, but by a true lack of self-interest. If my reference to the buddhic-astral nature of your life direction is not clear to you, take the matter up with R. V. B. Your technical knowledge of these terms may not be adequate to true comprehension. You need to study in order to awaken your mental grasp, without losing at the same time your intuitional wisdom. R. S. U. needs to study less and to be more.

Power can flow through you, my brother. As a channel, you can be potent once that channel has been better cleared. You can act as a distributor of strength and power to your brothers once you have freed yourself from the center of your stage and can move with greater freedom on soul levels...

Your work must continue to lie a great deal on buddhic levels. The calls to meditation which so constantly come to you from somewhere must still meet with prompt response from your personality. This is one thing which you have mastered, the ability as a soul to call the attention of the personality. This ability is your major asset and contribution where my group of disciples is concerned for it enables you, if you so choose, to [333] send forth at will light and strength and power. Continue with this work of attention.

May the light of the Eternal shine upon your way, my brother and the power of your soul pour through you with increasing helpfulness to your chosen band of comrades. Such is my prayer for you as I gather you closer into my aura.
