Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - S.R.D.
June 1938


There is little that anyone can do when tests and deep distress and anxiety overwhelm a disciple except to stand by in love, send healing thoughts and evoke the inner strength of the soul that the vehicles can be used. You have before you some weeks and months of selfless service. Give of the service with no thought of self and in a spirit of joy; give of your [565] strength and love with no self-reference in your heart or words and no thought in your mind of the little self. I give you no set study work at this time, but I will give you some new seed thoughts and would ask you to ponder upon them in deep reflection. Then each month will you embody the results of these reflections in a paper which can be very brief but which will be your elucidation of the intended idea? Did you notice, my brother, the value and the significance of the seed thought I gave you for the sixth month? It gave you the key for your immediate service.

  • First month... Let the song of the soul be sounded forth by me, and the clear high notes bring peace and joy to others. My word today is Joy.
  • Second month... Let the quality of the soul be seen in me, the quality of love. It is a love which visions not the little forms of self, but the One Self in all. My quality today is self Forgetfulness.
  • Third month... Let the word of my soul go forth in strength to others. That word for me, in this short period of my life, is Understanding.
  • Fourth month... Let the vision of my mind be clear and sure; its outline true and real. That vision is one of mankind's need, of suffering and of pain, for it is there in all the world. The key for me today is Service.
  • Fifth month... Let the glory of the Lord who is my life, be seen. That glory is the glory of the One. Distinction and all differences fade away. The word that is for me the meaning of that life is Identification.
  • Sixth month... Let the actions of the soul be the motives of my daily life. I am that soul and unto that I dedicate myself. That soul is one in all my fellowmen and I am one with them. The keynote of the action of the soul is Sacrifice.

[566] A real understanding of the purpose of these thoughts will cause basic transformations in your life and attitudes, leading to a new ability to serve.

In connection with your rays, my brother, it is of interest to you to know, as I have earlier told you, that your soul ray is the second and your personality ray is the sixth, both these rays being along the one line of 2.4.6. It is necessary that there should be some conscious and definite rounding out. This over-balance is accentuated also by the fact that your mental body is upon the fourth ray, thus completing the direct representation of this line of divine energy. As you will naturally see, this complicates your problem considerably, because the line of least resistance, when it is as powerful as it is in your case, becomes a definite hindrance.

Like a few others in my group, your astral body is not found upon the usual rays. These are normally either the sixth or the second, but you have a first ray astral body and the focus of your personality power is found in your emotional nature. This is a residue of a sixth ray personality in your last incarnation, which was one of great potency and wilfuly actuated by what I might call the will aspect of devotion. I know that you will comprehend that to which I refer.

Your physical body helps in the balancing of your predominantly second ray nature, for it is upon the third ray and, as you know, the first and third rays are along the same major line of force. The astral and physical bodies being so closely allied, accounts for the dominance of your devotional will in your physical expression. Ponder upon the above and later, we will deal with your problem more definitely. Your rays, therefore, are:

  1. The soul ray - the second Ray of Love-Wisdom.
  2. The personality ray - the sixth Ray of Devotion.
  3. The ray of the mental body - the fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict.
  4. The ray of the astral body - the first Ray of Will or Power.
  5. The ray of the physical body - the third Ray of Active Intelligence. [567]
