Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - W.O.I.
January 1940


How shall I make clear to you the nature of the glamor which at this time can hinder your close integration into this group of brothers? It is of so subtle a kind that, perhaps, I cannot make it present as a fact in your consciousness; only where glamor is recognized and seen for what it is, is it possible to dissipate it. It is not the glamor of criticism or of undue analysis that is your problem. It is in some way a result or sequence, growing out of these two aspects of mental activity and yet it is neither of them exactly. Perhaps I might call it the "glamor of the Judge" - trained, wise, experienced but forever exercising (as a life habit) the prerogative of the judgment seat. A case in point, my brother, which may serve to illustrate my point was your reaction to the ---. For several days I watched your inner turmoil and distress until you escaped by the door of decisive judgment distributing the blame, exonerating some and resting back upon the assumed correctness of your decision. Yet you knew not enough - even about your own group.

At the same time, your rays are such that they constitute a deep pool or well of loving understanding; it is only your fifth ray personality that stands in the way of a full expression of the love which is truly your major and outstanding quality. This, your mental and astral vehicles (being, both along the line of the second ray) will aid you in expressing. But it is the task of the fifth ray (when dominating the personality) to dissect, to analyze, and to come to conclusions and this is a glamor, requiring most careful handling or a barrier will be set up - in your case - between the soul and the three vehicles through the medium of the synthesizing of personality energy. Ponder on this. [450] Think it out, for when you have clarified the issue in your own mind, you will have cleared away one of the most potent of the relatively few things which hold you back from a very important step forward.

It is not easy for disciples or initiates to identify themselves with weakness or with failure, and yet that must be done. They constitute just as much a part of the expression of humanity as does strength or success, and there can be no separation in attitude or failure in identification. Disciples have to learn to identify themselves with the whole.
