Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - G.S.S.
December 1935


You have been so short a time in this group that it is not my purpose now (nor would it be wise) to change the work earlier [408] outlined for you. Not yet have you established the needed routine and rhythm. It is never my intention to be authoritative nor do I ever demand obedience. I but make suggestions and leave it to the student to apply himself or not as he may choose and as his earnestness may dictate. But I do observe his work and its results. May I, therefore, say one thing? I would like to see in you a more steady application to the meditation work. Seek as far as possible to be regular in its daily effectiveness. Let nothing but that which is unavoidable interfere with your quiet time in the Presence. Here perhaps is a point where you could discipline yourself somewhat more effectively.

You have grasped rapidly and well the point I made in my last instruction anent your reaching people. Your service must be one of potent loving contact. Your method should be that of a deep interest in them, more than an interest in what you may have to give them of an occult and intellectual nature. Their need is the thing that is of importance. The effort to understand these people (with their reticence and silences, their weaknesses and strengths, their aspirations and their failures, their devotions and their customs) and to enter into their consciousness will give you the training which you need and will enable you later to be a server whom we, the teachers on the inner side, can more fully use.

You are on the "lighted Way," my brother, and your soul will carry you through to a more assured understanding and a more established peace. This you oft have realized you need.

Give the next few months to a close study of all the group instructions. Attempt to master their contents and to be familiar with the group aims, objectives and this preliminary teaching. Seek to comprehend more intelligently what is this group experiment in which you are aiding. It is group work in which you are engaged and not simply undertaking a mode of personal training... The individual angle of this work is of no importance, except in so far as it may affect the group as a whole. This is the point to be grasped by you and by several of the group members.

And, my brother, may I add one parting word? Aim at demonstrating happiness. Be joyous in your work and service. Be not so intense, but go happily along the lighted Way. Such is my prayer for you. [409]
