Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - P.D.W.
November 1936


I am giving you only a short instruction this time. We are often in touch and you are occupied now with fresh adjustments to life. These adjustments are necessary and right, and I do not seek to interfere or to complicate your mind in any way. The past three years have brought to you many changes - some of them in circumstance, environment and in the field of human contacts, but most of them of an interior nature and in the realm of consciousness.

You are entering into a period of intensive work. Two things, however, I would say to you, my brother and my friend, at this time:

  1. Guard with care the physical body. You are one of those people who must learn to work through the medium of a frail and delicate physical body and you could greatly hinder its usefulness if you forced it to do too much active external work. It is not capable of much outer physical contact or of rapid and frequent change and of hard work. Guard it well and cherish it with care.
  2. Remember that it is not where you are but what you are that matters and which is of importance. From the quiet spot where you have lived and where you can rightly care for the physical body (your instrument of service on the outer plane of life), there can emanate such spiritual force and living wisdom that you can serve a multitude. You can serve them from there without the rough outer contacts that more physically robust workers can endure. Serve from the center within yourself by pen and thought and interview, but go not out into contact with the world. [437]

If you can do these two things, there is much that you can accomplish for us and much service that you can render to the Hierarchy which you love and serve, and you can do it over your full period of time. But if you forget these two suggestions, it will not be easy for you to carry on and you will not be able to fulfil your intended task for us with the desired perfection. Your work is along the lines of radiation and interpretation.

The only other thing I seek to do today is to tell you the nature of your personality rays and thereby bring you to a clearer understanding of yourself. As you know, your egoic or soul ray is the second Ray of Love-Wisdom, and your personality ray is the sixth Ray of Devotion. There is no need for me to do more than indicate to you that the following contacts are easy for you to make, owing to this combination.

  1. A contact with your soul. This is already made and established.
  2. A contact with the Hierarchy, through the medium of your soul.
  3. Contact with the astral plane, through your sixth ray personality which functions easily, therefore, on the sixth plane, the astral.
  4. Contact with ideas, through an active intuition.

These are definitely assets and are the hall mark of the advanced disciple. This I think you know without my telling you. But all these contacts involve the handling of force and present their own unique problems.

Your mental body is on the fifth Ray of Concrete Knowledge or Science. Hence your interest and usefulness in the science of astrology which is in many ways the science of sciences. Hence also your keen mind, your untiring search for truth and your power to achieve light on many matters. The one point you should remember is that the fifth ray is a crystallizing factor and (in conjunction with the will and power developed by you in your last life) could tend to make you dogmatic and consequently separate. This must be offset by your second ray soul.

Your astral body is on the sixth ray, as is your personality, and this greatly aids you in your life task, provided that you [438] use the astral body as the medium of soul expression and not as an agent, per se, on the astral plane. This ray force gives you devotion, idealism, a dynamic will to pierce through all glamors and misconceptions and thus achieve truth and freedom, both for yourself and for your group and those you serve. It could give you also, if you permitted it, a tendency to be yourself glimmered and overcome by illusion.

Your physical body is on the seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order or Magic; here is to be found the source of much of your ill-health. The seventh plane is the plane upon which spirit must express itself. It is the receptacle of spiritual energy. Your physical vehicle and medium of expression is of such a sensitive and refined nature and so frail a receptacle that your life problem is to handle wisely the spiritual energy which seeks to pour through. This constitutes a very real problem which you have faced for years and must continue to face.

This present cycle or period in your life is one in which you are called upon to face certain definite decisions. For this reason, I give you no work, except that which the group is doing, and no special meditation. Your major work at this time (and the theme of your meditation) is the arriving at right decision as you enter into a new period of spiritual activity. The problem goes deep. But you can solve it if you act with slowness, if you call on your soul to throw light upon your way, and if you bear in mind the two suggestions I made to you earlier in this instruction. Also, my brother, as has often been the case in other lives, I stand by you in love and understanding.
