Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - C.D.P.
January 1938


The past few months have seen the working out of much inner tension. This has materialized upon the physical plane as a sense of real fatigue and has climaxed in a period of illness. But - when inner causes have spent themselves in physical effects - there then follows a period of liberation and of adjustment. My word for you is, therefore: Let not the inner tension resume its sway. You might at this point rightly ask: How shall I prevent this happening? By remembering, my brother, that though the environing conditions may remain relatively the same, you yourself are not the same. You have arrived at a new measure of detached freedom and to this freedom you now must hold. The dominant note which should rule your life during the next few months is to stand steadily in spiritual realization. This will necessarily involve a close watchfulness over the personality. You will have to see that old thought-forms of fear and of worry do not resume their ancient sway and that old emotional reactions are not permitted to take form. Note how I have worded this injunction.

Stand as the soul and (as a constant habit of life) develop the attitude of recognizing your own divinity in daily expression. A close watchfulness over the first faint tendency to swing into the old rhythm will be necessary, coupled with a sane and immediate handling of old forms of weakness. For you the word, "substitution," may prove of real help, enabling you to substitute a fresh and vital interest in the place of the old emerging ideas; and to substitute a definite physical plane [522] activity in the place of emotional crisis; and to discipline your lower life into ways of joy and of happy activity. Joy would prove for you a major healing factor.

For years, my brother, I have referred frequently to your garden of beauty. First of all, I had to lead you to create it; later I taught you to perfect it and then to use it. I taught you also how to dedicate it and to turn it into a shrine of consecration and connect it in your mind with the thought of service. That which is thus created and used, exists. Today I would like to tell you that on the inner planes your garden is of service to my group of disciples and to others - in larger numbers than you think. It is a place of gathering for many and a place of refuge for a few. Ponder on this and continue your task of beautifying it. Remember ever, that those who seek its loveliness come not only for the garden but also come in order to contact you who, upon the inner side, appear other than you fancy yourself to be in physical incarnation.

Now there remains for you to make for others a garden of your life upon the physical plane. Much you have learned during the past years and though old rhythms and thought habits often draw you back outside your garden of peace, you find your way there again with greater speed. You do not wander quite so often into the mazes of worry and into the foggy lowlands of glamor.

See to it that during the next nine months you preserve an attitude of spiritual indifference or of divine carelessness and emotional detachment. Upon these three words - particularly the first two - I would beg you earnestly to ponder. Stand in your garden but when there comes the urge to venture forth upon an errand of concern, of anxiety or to satisfy suspicion, treat it with indifference and care not what may eventuate. Naught can occur that can really shatter your achieved balance. Know this.

Stand as a center of strength to all you meet and cast not my suggestion aside because your personality rejects the possibility of achievement. Upon the inner planes you have achieved; upon the outer plane today see that that achievement is also demonstrated. From the place wherein your physical plane life is lived, let there go forth that which can heal and [523] bless. Nothing can stop this blessing; it speeds forth upon the wings of detachment and from a heart that has no care for itself; it goes upon its mission because you have learned to trust the souls of those with whom your lot is cast...

I will give you the following eight sentences as seed thoughts for your meditation and would ask you to ponder them with care during the next eight months:

  • 1st month - Upon my tower I stand and naught can reach me here. Thus to the work which comes my way I dedicate myself.
  • 2nd month - Only my soul can reach the point of strength whereon I stand and to my soul that way is always open. To the task my soul assigns, I dedicate myself.
  • 3rd month - From the high point I oft come down and walk the ways of life and beauty with my brothers. To the task of helping them I dedicate myself.
  • 4th month - The radiance of love I seek to shower on all I meet and to this life of radiant love, I dedicate myself.
  • 5th month - With carelessness divine, I face my daily life, knowing that all is well. To the aid of those I serve, the Masters of the Way, I dedicate myself.
  • 6th month - With true divine indifference I shoulder every load that comes my way, for naught can touch my soul. To manifest this confidence, I dedicate myself.
  • 7th month - Those who are given to me to love, upon the ways of life, I love and serve. I gaze upon them free from fear. To strengthen them within their souls, I dedicate myself.
  • 8th month - Upon my tower, in the high place of vision, now I stand and from that point I live and love and work. To this high destiny I dedicate myself'.

If you can grasp the reality of the service and the usefulness of the service that you can render, you will have made much progress when next I instruct you. [524]
