Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - B.S.W.
March 1939


If you can grasp clearly the implications of what I now seek to tell you, you will make real progress. I shall leave you to find out for yourself what the implications are. You are at a [636] point in your development where - unless you emerge into a more mental type of realization - you will crystallize into a high grade astral magician and arrest your own true development for this life. Three things I would like to point out to you in this connection:

  1. You spend the greater part of your subjective life upon the astral plane.
  2. You endeavor - largely unconsciously - to work as an astral magician works, using words to bring life and form together. You do not use the Word.
  3. The work you do is done on astral levels and not from soul levels so that the Word of Power which the soul would use is stepped down to the many, many words the astral magician finds necessary. Your emphasis is now upon the form and not upon the spirit aspect.

This is due to two things: First, the fact that your personality ray is the seventh and you have likewise a seventh ray brain. Secondly, you brought this tendency over from a previous life; your task has been to transcend it all and free yourself from all magical work of every kind until you are established in soul consciousness. But at present you love this type of thing and believe that all you contact is a reality. As long as this is the case, your soul life is blocked at astral levels.

Another difficulty, growing out of this, is the fact that because of this astral impasse, your soul is focused in the astral body. It can get no further into expression, i. e., on the physical plane, on account of the glamor which surrounds you. Your personality energy is focused in the mental body. This brings the influence of the magical seventh ray to bear upon your mind, so that you are caught by glamor in two directions. Your brain being also an expression of seventh ray force facilitates this work of magic.

Until, my brother, you are polarized in the soul, you are playing with fire and the magical work of the astral plane is full of danger for you. Even your intense interest in Masonry is for this life unwise, for the Masonic Work is magical work, being a reflection of the processes of initiation whereby the power of the spirit and the power of substance are brought together through the "magical work of the soul." [637]

I am speaking with frankness because I want to see you released from this condition and from the impasse at which you have arrived. I would ask you, therefore, that - whether you accept my conclusion or not is immaterial - you give ten minutes each morning to achieving the attitude and altitude of the soul and from that point (or as high a point as you find it possible to attain at any given time) to think through the arguments for and against your present life attitude and interests. Endeavor to see, as you so do, that soul and brain are brought en rapport - a thing which seldom happens with you. If you can do some clear thinking along this line, you will rapidly free yourself from glamor. Forget not, your sixth ray astral body intensifies your problem for it leads you to be devoted to the superficial phenomena which you regard as realities...

My blessing rest upon you. I would particularly ask you to make the period of the Full Moon each month one of true spiritual tension and interest. I would beg you to try to hear and see what I say. I have worded this with definite intent. You will gain much from the effort.

NOTE: The Tibetan stated in January 1938 that "only one thing prevents your rapid integration into your true place and that is your ancient love for astral wandering and for psychic phenomena." This proved true and this disciple is still sidetracked and hence is not working in the Tibetan's Ashram.
