Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.S.U.
January 1938


What am I to say to you? If I remind you not that the need is for you to submit your lower nature to discipline, you would [371] have for me no respect for I would not be a true friend and teacher. If I remind you of this need I then but increase your responsibility which is not the act of a true friend and teacher.

Disciples come definitely into the aura of the Hierarchy. You are a disciple. Disciples evoke from us who are the teachers upon the inner side of life many and diverse reactions. We look at some of you and feel that much time must elapse before we can fully trust you with our confidence; integration, wisdom and soul contact must first be induced. Others emerge into the hierarchical Light and we know - as we study them - that though there is contact and knowledge there is also ambition, violence and selfishness and that these qualities must be offset and subdued before there can be freedom of action, both on our part and on theirs. Others again are lovely in themselves with a high and sweet vibration but they are weak and full of fear, sorrowful or weighed down with care; they have to be taught the way of strength and of divine carelessness before their service can measure up to demand. Others again come into our sphere of influence who are integrated, wise, trustworthy and with far more than the average capacity to serve and to prove useful. Their power to live, to influence and to serve is very great. Yet in some one part of their nature there is weakness and their expression is limited. That weakness could be so easily offset, given sufficient illumined desire and spiritual will (qualities present but unused).  Such a disciple are you, my brother and my comrade of long standing. Your major hindrance is in your physical body which refuses discipline and hitherto has bested all your efforts. This you know and to this you refer with a sense of blinding failure. How can I help you, therefore, when you know the causes of hindrance, the obstacles to wider influence and the nature of the problem which you have to solve?

There is nothing that I can do beyond telling you that once you have brought your physical nature into line with the demand of your soul, that you have far more to give than the average disciple. You have wisdom and much experience, individual and racial. You have a deep love, of which you are afraid and, therefore, fail to express as you might and which your executive work has cramped and hindered. You have [372] seasoned occult understanding which can do much for others. You have a magnetic radiance. But there is ever a point beyond which you seem unable to go - a point at which the physical body intervenes and refuses to become a clear channel for the expression of the inner beauty and radiance.

Having pointed this out, having begged you to bring this aspect of yourself into line with spiritual demand and having indicated the wider field of service which could open up before you, I have to leave you to succeed in the task or to refuse to undertake it as seems to you best. Perhaps later, I shall see a pronounced change - full alignment and heightened radiance.

I would ask you to take much time each Sunday (for an hour at least) in the attempt to contact my aura and, through that, the aura of the Hierarchy. The results of this effort should be vital to you and of importance in handling your problem. I leave you with the last words of the occult phrases I gave you a year ago:

"Then recollection came and active work."

I trust that soon that will be the statement which I shall be enabled to make anent you and not the usual earlier one, "and still the Master Workman waited".
