Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.S.U.
June 1934


The past six months have seen you making much effort and the work of refining the vehicles is proceeding apace. You have still several more months of strenuous work before the personality can measure up to the demands ahead but your devotion and humility, your clear vision and your wisdom are such that you can be depended upon to make the grade.

There are two points of incipient glamor - faintly misty traces - which must be watched with care lest they form a thickening cloud between you and the sun. I specify them not lest [358] in so doing I precipitate the cloud. Glamor is not dispelled by paying close attention to it. It disappears by the power of clear and steadfast meditation and the freeing of oneself from self attention. Can you grasp the significance of that paradoxical phrase? I but indicate a vague mirage which need never cause you trouble, provided you seek not self recognition, and that you love with pure purpose all those you meet.

During the next six months, your meditation work and the focus of your attention must be the stepping up of your awareness of the soul. You have an interesting and rather unusual problem; this is based on the fact that your consciousness shifts all the time from the lower to the higher mind, but often fails to touch the intermediate point, that of the soul on its own particular level. It is like this, my brother:

Higher Mind / Soul / Lower Mind

In the building of the antahkarana (at this stage) there is a gap in the bridge where the soul is and you jump from the lower to the higher Triad. This means a bridging from the highest point of the lower triad to the lowest point of the higher, the Spiritual Triad. Therefore, for you, there must be careful exercise in an elementary stage - the alignment of the soul and brain, via the mind. Work at that for a while with understanding, prior to doing your morning meditation. Make your meditation brief and quick. You have a habit of keeping the three "sacred points" - morning, noon and sunset. I am going to suggest that at those interludes in the day's activities you change your method considerably. I suggest that you work with color more than with forms of words, such as seed thoughts, or with ideas. You are a natural occultist and have the key to the realm of ideas and the words of many books are in your mind. I would, therefore, suggest the following process:

  1. Sound the O. M.
  2. After you have worked for a few minutes at right alignment then: [359]
    1. At your morning meditation visualize a deep rose-colored lotus. Build it with care and from its opening heart see a stream of rosy light (not red) pouring forth, engulfing you and your co-disciples
    2. At your noon meditation repeat the same symbolic work but this time with a yellow lotus.
    3. At sunset again repeat the process only this time your lotus is of a deep electric blue with its heart a golden sun.
  3. Use then the mantric sentence which I gave you in my last communication, pondering upon its meaning.
  4. Proceed with your usual linking up with those you ever remember in your meditation, giving them strength and light and knowing yourself to be an intermediary.
  5. Close with the invocation which you know and love so well:

    May the Holy Ones whose disciple I am show me the light I seek; give me the strong aid of their compassion and their wisdom. There is a peace which passeth understanding; it abides in the hearts of those who live in the Eternal. There is a power which maketh all things new; it lives and moves in those who know the Self as one. May that peace brood over us, that power uplift us till we stand where the One Initiator is invoked, till we see his star shine forth.

  6. Sound the O. M.

I particularly ask you to make your spiritual diary a more vital, more organized and more easily available document for the teaching of others. You have in it much of interest. It is, however, somewhat chaotic and the ideas in it are not easily understandable. Will you make it more sequential, synthetic and readable so that the arranged and presented ideas can be of service to other students? You have much to convey of occult knowledge and when you learn to write your knowledge, then your real service will begin to emerge... Present what you have to offer; this can be much when you have learned with wisdom to externalize your knowledge. [360]
