Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - G.S.S.
March 1936


The task of blending with any group is ever a hard one, and has been specially so in your case. This I foresaw, but I saw also that you would make a real effort so to do, and I have not been disappointed. You need, however, a still longer period of adjustment before I dare give you either the meditation or the personal teaching which I hope sometime to give to you. This is not owing to anything that you might consider a fault, but is due primarily to your exceeding sensitivity to soul stimulation.

In cases such as yours there is need to proceed with exceeding care. There is an emotional and physical balance and rhythm in you which is very easily upset. This is due to the tremendous potency of your etheric body. This vital body of yours is of such strength, and carries so much energy upon the higher levels of the astral plane and also from the lower mental, that it upsets certain balancing factors in the physical body. Thus the task of any teacher working with you is tremendously complicated. You both feel too intensely, and move and speak with too great a consequent rapidity. It is a real problem for me (does this surprise you, my brother?) how to make clear to you your need for slowness. How can I, with my clearer vision of you and my knowledge of your subtler bodies and their condition, enable you to grasp it also? I cannot do more than be very guarded in what I give to you of stimulation and of attention, for your reactions are so rapid and so violent. I have to judge with care what I ask you to do because the effects are so prompt, and contact with my energy so often produces in you over-stimulation and excitation, with fatigue as a result.

Perhaps I can help you most by saying that, owing to your ray combinations and your background in other lives, your interest is more mental than aspirational. Your keen and active mind (which is, however, often an inaccurate mind) is swung into intense interest with great facility; it is most easily fertilized and has in it the promise of being both powerful and constructive, later. But at this time, you cannot handle the force that comes through to your physical body, and which is [410] directed by your mind. Coming from the mind, it indicates, therefore, the force of a rapidly integrating personality, but this force, as you do not yet live a full life of service, is too much for you. When you serve more truly and definitely, your problem will be solved.

Your problem also is largely the problem of the right use of time; your life will be straightened out considerably, and a great deal of your physical over-stimulation disappear when you use time rightly.

My brother of olden time, you use so much time on that which is futile from the angle of world need and of the true and basic essentials. When I say this I would have you, however, remember that I am not suggesting that you should alter your technique of daily living, nor that your home or your responsibilities should be handled with less care and good results. I am referring definitely to an inner attitude towards time which you do not as yet hold.

Upon what do you place your emphasis in life and how can I illustrate to you my point? You state that you are failing to find the time to do your meditation work correctly. Why should this be, my brother? You may not be able to do it the first thing each morning before breakfast, but many people cannot. Yet surely, if your essentials are right, you could demand thirty minutes at some point early in the day for your soul contact. The structure of your daily living will not break down if, for instance, you do not answer the telephone during that period and permit yourself that time of quiet, delegating others to deal with the telephone. You need to readjust your values.

As regards your meditation, I will give you one that is very brief. I will ask you, also, to cease meditating in the head and for a while to meditate in the heart, remembering that the heart center is between the shoulder blades and not in the physical heart. Do not, however, permit yourself to dwell upon the fact of the centers or their locality. Simply drop your mental intensity and center your consciousness lower in the upper part of the body. Do not analyze the situation, or the location or the purpose or the why and the wherefore too much. Simply, my brother, do as you are told, knowing that I may perhaps know a little more than you. [411]

  1. Imagine yourself as the soul, using the lower man as an instrument.
  2. Imagine the soul as working through and energizing the center of love in your being. Relax then and sink down into the soul consciousness which is love. Let love be the keynote of your meditation.
  3. Then pour out love
    1. Upon your immediate family circle.
    2. Upon those with whom you associate in your social life.
    3. Upon your group brothers.
    4. Upon the New Group of World Servers.
    5. Upon the world.
    6. You will note how this involves a steadily imagined establishment of consciousness, in love. Do this sequentially, quietly, and definitely, with no hurry.

  4. Then ponder for the next six months upon the following seed thoughts:
  • First month - Love - "I tread the Way of Love. That Love irradiates my life."
  • Second month - Understanding - "The way of Love is the lighted Way."
  • Third month - Integration - "The way of Love leads to the Presence of the Self. That Self am I."
  • Fourth month - Contact - "I see that Presence as myself. I merge myself in Light."
  • Fifth month - Service - "The sons of men must all be led to tread the Way of Love."
  • Sixth month - The Plan - "The Plan for man has three great goals. The revelation of love; the illumination of the mind; the evocation of the will."

The major task, however, which I set you will be most difficult for you to do, but I ask you most definitely to do it in the interests of your own development and, above all, in your growth and service both to the world and to your group brothers. [412]

Speak little, and endeavor to work each day with a conscious, definite program, thus learning to organize your time to the best advantage, and leaving more time for service and quiet thought. Be slow to speak, slow to move, slow to decide, slow to form opinions.

There is much to be done by this group of servers but I cannot begin to use the group until certain personality adjustments have been made. Make rapid progress, my brother, by slow stages.
