Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - D.H.B.
March 1937


I have studied with care the replies sent in by this group of aspirants. I have studied yours with special care for a reason which you know, but which may not be stated here. Your replies indicate a glamor out of which you should at once [425] emerge - the glamor of depression, based on a sense of spiritual inferiority which is not warranted, being not based on facts. As an instance of this - read the list of failings which you give. My brother, even if there is some basis of truth in your enumeration, still your replies remain untruthful, for you omit all recollection or reference to the other side of the picture. You are centered in your mind in the involutionary reactions of the personality vehicles. Yet, you are, as you well know, in preparation for certain steps forward upon the Path. A clear vision of yourself is needed, and at each turn upon the Way you have to face three realities:

  1. The little or lower self.
  2. The Dweller upon the Threshold, in cases such as yours.
  3. The Angel of the Presence.

Be not so occupied with the personality self, seek more frequently the company of the Angel, which hides and veils (and yet reveals) the hidden glory of the spirit. Your faults are there, as are the faults of all upon the Way. Many pass much time and thus slow down their active spiritual expression by an undue interest and a too intent focusing upon the liabilities and limitations. Recognize this, my brother, and then pass on. They are not all you have to show, they do not give the entire picture.

Five years ago you evidenced much spiritual pride; you had a strong sense of separateness, and a highly developed critical mind. Today these demonstrate far less than formerly, and you are now quick to see any emerging wrong tendencies, and equally quick to repudiate them.

Humble love is for you the goal this year together with the expression of a loving, understanding heart, thus aiding all you meet. Have no other aim. The practice of this will balance and round out your undoubted head development.

I shall not change your work greatly. Continue to Ponder upon the thoughts I earlier gave you as seed ideas for meditation. Take them now, however, as the theme of your daily recollection and not as seed thoughts for meditation. Follow the group meditation with care for it will give you what you need. For you, during the coming year, the cultivation of a poised [426] recollection and of a reflective attitude (held with constancy) is of more importance than half an hour of intense meditation. Bear this in mind. Reflect upon your last instructions; they are full of thoughts which you have not yet "inferred" or sensed. Ponder upon them and seek the higher inferences. Clear away the glamor of depression and enter upon the new cycle with joy.
