Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.S.W.
To  R. S. W.

March 1936


This is my first instruction to you and my first communication; it is entirely of a preliminary nature. Until the next instruction becomes due, this group of serving brothers must wait for a more complete indication of their individual work - an expression which will only be possible if the group shows greater integration and if the response to the Wesak Festival outpouring has been adequate.

You are probably asking yourself why I have put you into the work of this group. Is there something of major value which [638] you can contribute? Two questions are arising in your mind. What can you bring to the group? What has the group to give you? I have put them in their proper order, for service must ever be the keynote.

You bring to this group an understanding heart. You are a sound and good psychologist, not only from academic training but from a full experience in other lives and a natural intuitive grasp of people's problems. You know people because you love them and because you are endeavoring to be harmless.

What will you receive and why have I put you here? One of the reasons that you are in this group is because you need a larger measure of stabilization and this the group will enable you to gain. Your function in the group will become more apparent as time goes on. You have an over-active mind and an ability to grasp all sides of a question and to do many things fairly well. This is both a danger and an asset. You need to focus that mind and that understanding heart in one direction now, which is that of psychological healing; here work will be given to aid you; at this point I can begin to teach you; and here you can begin to do the life work that is really yours. Have patience, therefore, for a year or so. You are young. Later it will appear more clearly to your perception wherein you best can serve. I know your field of service, but I will never tell you; each disciple must freely come to an understanding of his destined service. When you know for yourself what it is, then I will help you to express your aspiration.

One hint, symbolically, I will give to you. The musical wandering hither and thither of the little stream as it emerges from its source and runs over the stones and rocks, responding to the sunshine and the rain, has to give place to the calm, deep running of a river, as it pours down to the sea, fertilizing the fields through which it runs and making many human activities possible.

Now I will give you my specific instructions for this present time. They are in the nature of preparatory work, of a preliminary reorientation, and of a clearing of the ground for later activity.

The thoughts below, my brother, if rightly used, have in them the seeds of the needed strength and wisdom which your [639] life in the next year will require. They are simplicity itself and yet of a profundity which will exact its utmost from your intelligence.

  • 1st month - The Way of Intelligence leads to light.
  • 2nd month - The Way of Meditation leads to the gate.
  • 3rd month - The Way of the Presence leads to the innermost center.
  • 4th month - The Way of Introspection leads to revelation.
  • 5th month - The Way of Service leads to liberation.
  • 6th month - The Way of Discipleship leads to the Master.

Steadfastness and changeless understanding is your contribution at this time to your group. Be not swayed by personalities, but take your stand upon your own individually acquired wisdom; preserve the group integrity by definite effort. Do the work which I have assigned to you. Work for the preservation of the group integrity. I ask this of you.
