Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - L.T.S-K.
July 1934


When I think of you, it is with a sense of enquiry, of loving kindness and also with a sense of urgency. The years slip by; those who look on at the lives of aspirants have oft a sense of this urgency - an urgency that the aspirant seldom feels himself. Life has offered you much of opportunity for progress, but you entered life and built a body that has in it much crystallized material and a mental body of such rigidity that your problem (this incarnation) was - if I could use so inadequate a form of words - to smash what you yourself had constructed and used. You had to break your old thought-form of intrigue, of ambition and of power before you could be liberated for real service. Half a century has gone. The thought-form of ambition has been broken and crippled but a sense of futility must not take its place. The thought-form of power is weakening. The thought-form of intrigue received a bad blow during the episode of glamor in the early spring. But the forms still persist. You stand before them bewildered, anxious to do the right thing, [603] blinded by the power of your own creations which shine with their own light, and blinded also by the blaze of light emanating from your own soul and from the group soul. But blinded and, seemingly, helpless.

No one can help you, my brother. You yourself must let all things go, and become "the little child," spoken of in the Bible. It is not for me or any teacher to tell you what to do. For one thing, you would do it, and in doing it learn naught. From within yourself must come the incentive, and from yourself must emanate the clear wisdom, and the clean cut action which will eventually bring your release. What, therefore, can any of us do? Gather not from the above that I or others feel that for you there is no release this life. Naught can arrest at this stage the work of your own soul. Only the urgency of the times incites any of us to desire that that release should be accomplished as rapidly as may be in order to set you free to serve.

Perhaps the way in which I can best help you is to give you a meditation which will enable you to clarify the field of motives. Your life motive to tread the Path is sound, but e'en that motive is tainted by the ancient rhythms. Your other motives are oft beautiful, but spoilt by the underlying distortions of the concrete mind which incites to ambition, to love of power and to deviousness in approach to any action of any kind.

Therefore, for you, simplicity and clarity as to the causes of all that you do are essential and needed. At sunrise, at noon, at sunset and at night - four times a day - follow the procedure outlined below:

  1. Sound the Sacred Word three times, breathing it out as a soul through the three bodies.
  2. Say then, as you stand in the light of the soul.
    "I stand before the judgment seat of my own soul. I stand in the light that comes from that divine source. I seek to walk in truth, sincerity and love."
  3. Then ask yourself the following three questions:
    1. That which I have accomplished during the past few hours, has it been clearly understood by me?
    2. Have I acted simply and sanely and with wise direction? [604]
    3. Why did I act and speak and write in this particular connection? What prompted the specific deed?
  4. Having thus analyzed the activities of the past few hours, then dedicate them to the service of the Master. The doing of this will eliminate much thought and work of a personal intent.

This sounds simple and almost elementary but if you carry this meditation forward for the next three months, doing no other, you will find that the whole problem of motive will clarify for you. That is what you want, is it not, my brother? Well I know it. Your basic life intent causes me no concern. It is your life technique that lies at the root of all the difficulty. It is governed so oft by expediency. Give not so much time to intricate and devious thought. Seek to live mentally much more simply. Ask and look for nothing for the separated self and eliminate all thought along the lines of lower self endeavor. The group stands by you in loving helpfulness and readiness to aid. So do I. This is no idle word but a statement of fact that is one upon which you can depend.
