Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - D.P.R.
February 1936


You have had a year of strain and of much anxiety. But you have grown much thereby and there is a greater measure of freedom to be seen in you subjectively than ever before. You are learning, to detach yourself from people and from the clinging hands of those demanding presences who are to be found clamoring for your attention in their lives. This freedom must increase as you endeavor to meet perfectly the need of those around you, yet at the same time you must go on with increasing power detaching yourself from their inner hold upon you. They must fail to reach you in the inner fortress of your soul.

There you must learn to stand, detached and unafraid. I cannot too strongly urge this detachment on you and beg you to live henceforth more bravely the life of the sannyasin. Two years ago I could not have spoken thus, for you would not have understood; but you have advanced far since those days, my brother, and are beginning to enter into the realm of freedom, e'en though your freedom is as yet but relative and incomplete.

I am now going to give you six themes for meditation during the next six months, gathered out of the paragraphs which I gave to you last time for your consideration. Let your meditation, therefore, follow the following lines.

  • 1st month - Why, is strength needed to:
    a. Tread the Path of Revelation. [394]
    b. Cross the sea of dark illusion.
    c. Face the lighted way of earth.
  • 2nd month - What should I do? I seek to tread the lighted Way which leads back to the Presence. What in my life obstructs that Way?
  • 3rd month - How can I do the duty of this day, yet demonstrate detachment?
  • 4th month - How can I meet each rising need, yet stand apart and unafraid?
  • 5th month - How can I enter into light and steadfast stand, seeing the truth on every hand?
  • 6th month - How can I guide my brothers on the Way and with them find the secret of the dark light which reveals? How can I discover the agent which dispels illusion?

Dedicate yourself and life and all you have to the service of the Plan and do this in full consciousness and not as a required duty. Stand with your group brothers in the light of the Presence. As a group, renew your dedication.
