Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - B.S.W.
February 1934


This past year has been one of testing and of strain for you and of consistent, faithful, inner work. You have ever been sure of your spiritual relationships and that is right and well but you are fortunately less sure now of the judgments of the personality. When the personality is being relegated to its rightful place as an instrument and the shift of consciousness is away from the exterior life of the form to the interior life of the soul, then true esoteric living becomes possible. In the life of all disciples, there comes the time when there is an interlude of difficulty. During that interlude, discovery is made that the personality will, the personality judgment, and the personality aspiration is a part of the general glamor - a glamor which can only be dispelled as the soul pours its life and light with steady radiance into the instrument.

The best that I can desire for you, my brother, is that this dispelling light may flood your life and evoke that simplicity which is ever the indication of soul domination. That one word "simplicity" should embody the theme of your thought [624] for the next few months and should constitute the keynote of your meditation.

You are a strong soul and must hew your own way through the jungle of mundane existence. What do I mean by the words "a strong soul"? I mean not only that your first ray quality of power is expressing itself. That, of course. But I mean primarily that you are experienced and this experience of yours enables you to evidence steadfastness and that poise in isolation which conveys to others the feeling that they can depend upon you. This, in the second place, means an increasing capacity to be magnetic and in that word "magnetic" lies the goal of your personality experience. The first ray person is easily strong but not so easily magnetic, for magnetism is above all else either a heart or a solar plexus emanation.

Since your entry into my group of disciples there is a growing evidence of the awakening of the heart center and this should give you encouragement. Let us work more definitely at that. I seek not to interfere at this time with your meditation but you have recognized that, in the press of work and for the period of the next few years, your work can be directed by me, if so you will, and thus, for a brief period, you have voluntarily submitted to the suggestions of a second ray disciple, myself. The pressure of work on the Masters Morya and K.H. is such that some of us are lifting what we can off their shoulders. In the same way the Master Hilarion is lifting a good deal of the work of training sixth ray disciples off the shoulders of the Master Jesus. A number of inner adjustments are going on in the exigencies of the stress of this cycle. It is one work, my brother, and all forces are expressions of the energy of love and the potencies of wisdom.

To the wisdom force of the Buddha, you easily respond. To the militancy and devotion of the Master Jesus and to the vibration of his organism, the Church militant, you vibrate also with facility, for the priesthood had long been your chosen field of service. An ancient sannyasin are you. To the understanding and the inclusive love of the Christ aspect, as it expresses itself in the "fire of divine compassion," you only respond in a secondary sense. The awakening of this compassion should be one of your objectives in meditation. It will lead [625] to inclusiveness and the power to "see things as others see them."

Your meditation does not now require the practice of visualization and the registering of color. The ancient pomp and ceremonies of a priestly past lie buried in your consciousness and are easily evoked; in the thrill of stately ceremonial and of rhythmic organization, you find your line of least resistance. The first ray person is conscious of ordered life, the majesty of ordered forces; the glory of the intelligent "arrangement" of the powers which lie behind the manifested world is his rightful field of service. But to this must be added the power to intuit the Plan as it exists in the heart of love, for only love reveals the Plan and the part to be played in it by souls at any given time and place. I am enlarging thus as I seek to enrich your life by two things: by a recognition of the Plan as it exists on the astral plane at this time, close to materialization, and, secondly, by the recognition of the freedom of all souls to work out that Plan in unison with each other, interfering not with each other's methods but giving to each other the love and cooperation at those points where duty and obligation bring contact. Ponder on this...
