Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - W.O.I.
March 1937


I fancy', if you were asked the question, that you would regard the past year as one of the most educational and most developing that you have ever experienced this incarnation. [446] Something has happened to you that has "carried right through" from your soul to your brain. The result has been integrating, satisfying (in spite of incidental suffering) and relational in its effects. Such interludes of unfoldment in the life of an aspirant carry with them a high responsibility and, for the remainder of your life, you can - if you so choose - produce a definite effect upon those whose lives you are privileged to contact and to whom you can stand as a tower of strength in a world where adjustments and reorientation are going on. Because of these adjustments, certain great transitions in consciousness are in order and taking place. Some of the lessons you have learnt have not yet emerged into your waking brain consciousness, but that is of no moment for they can still bear fruit interiorly and, my brother, it is our subjective effort which is the most potent at all times.

I would ask you, in view of the past year's events, to proceed for the next few months with a relative slowness and with a real patience with yourself. I recommend that you do not indulge in any self-analysis, for you will thus give time for the desired unfoldment to stabilize and the processes of spiritual assimilation to proceed, unhindered by the activity of the lower mind.

With you, as with my other disciples in preliminary training, I would like to indicate the conditioning rays of the personality for - if you accept my suggestions and then test and prove them - you will arrive at a better understanding of the intended personality task and be free to participate in the group work as time proceeds. It should always be borne in mind that when I speak of the rays of the various bodies, I am referring to the dominant force which conditions them in any particular life, to the possible effect that the impact of that force - regulated or unregulated - may have upon surrounding people, and to the responsive, sensitive or impressionable substance with which the soul has perforce to work. I refer to what constitutes the material expression. This is perhaps one of the platitudes of the occult position, but it is of value at times to reiterate. In the case of students such as those of you in this group, it is one of the fundamental recollections and upon it all your effectiveness in work depends. [447]

As you know, you have a peculiar combination of dominant rays, the second Ray of Love-Wisdom being your soul ray and the fifth Ray of Concrete Science being your personality ray. I would have you ponder on the relationship which necessarily exists in your case between knowledge and wisdom. You would find it of value to put a considerable amount of thought into the relation of the three aspects of intelligent manifestation: the higher, abstract mind, the intelligent solar angel, and the lower concrete mind. Intuitive understanding, love-wisdom and concrete knowledge should be and can be developed and related by you in your daily life; to this I call your attention.

Your mental body is on the fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict, and hence the pattern of your life has been what it has. With you, however, the major expression of this activity should be in relation to those with whom you have to work in your chosen field of life service; the harmony achieved is the resolution of the conflict in the lives of those around you who are in process of adjustment to life. The conflicts within yourself are understood by you and can be rapidly resolved. It is the effect of your mental body upon others that I would seek to have you most definitely consider. Upon the probationary path. the forces of man's lower nature and their interior interplay is of paramount importance; he must learn to know himself. On the path of discipleship, these same forces must be studied in relation to those with whom destiny, karma and vocational choice has thrown the disciple. On the path of initiation, these same forces are used in conscious cooperation with the Plan, and with adequate skill in action, due to the lessons learnt on the earlier stages of the path.

Your astral body is on the sixth ray. This, I think, you have yourself suspected. This gives you intensity in aspiration and the dynamic will to push forward which has sufficed hitherto to carry you over all obstacles. You have succeeded in avoiding the usual difficulties of personality development where the sixth ray is concerned, and fanatical adherence to people or schools of thought. That is good. The transmuted, reoriented, higher attributes of those qualities should be your goal. [448]

You have a seventh ray physical body. You will note, therefore, in your personality equipment two lines of force which are in the first ray field of vital effectiveness: The fifth Ray of Concrete Science and the seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order or Magic. The other energies which constitute your working material are all on the second ray line: 2-4-6. Along that line you have a full and adequate equipment. You have only one major ray energy working through you in this incarnation, and that is the second. It was the recognition of that which induced me to give you the word " interpretation" as your most important keyword, for it would evoke in you qualities along the line of the third Ray of Active Intelligence, which is closely allied to your fifth ray personality.

Will you, during the coming months, take the theme of Interpretation as your most important meditation task?
