Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - J.S.P.
February 1939


The tension of fear is great in the world today. People everywhere are living under great strain. Forget not that it is the few in every land (and when I say "in every land" I make no exception) who bring about world evil. But I would have you remember also that the will of the masses of the people unless misled, is towards good and understanding. I am talking here in connection with world affairs. Stand steady, therefore, and permit no thoughts of hatred and fear to find lodging in [669] your mind. Stand firmly for good, looking for it in all peoples and races and thus seek to swell the rising tide of those who aspire to right human relations, knowing that the potency of love rightly expressed is great and is - at this time - the only factor that can offset hate.

In connection with this point, I would call your attention to the instructions given to D. I. J., for in them I refer to the similarity of your problems with hers and with those of D. H. B. You can, through this similarity (which is induced through the similarity of your rays), reinforce and strengthen each other and produce a triple unit of energy which will be of service to your group brothers. You three can from certain aspects meditate together each day.

I would ask you that you take as your special work that subject which is today of such interest to you - the idea of death and proving the fact of immortality. Survival, my brother, has been proved. This has been the great task and the real achievement of the spiritualistic movement throughout the world. Immortality, however, has not been proved.

When you have further steeped yourself in the subject, approaching it in happiness and in the spirit of service, I will give you later some ideas upon which you might work. I will not do so now as I want you to read and think through into a greater clarity of vision and a clearer perception of what it is you are seeking to undertake. One reason why you can do this work is that all your rays are along the line of building and of religion. You can, therefore, approach the scene in a far more detached manner than if your rays were purely mental or along the line of the first ray which is the ray that always brings withdrawal and abstraction and is the ray of the destroyer or of death itself. Ponder on this. There is a connection with the first ray aspect which is will, and that of death. Death is now the result of the will of the soul. Eventually it has to be the result of the united will of the soul and the personality and when that happens there will be no fear of death. Ponder also on this.

One of your problems in connection with all spiritual and meditational work is to avoid becoming too abstract; spiritual achievement for you in this life will come through the blending [670] of the highest possible point of spiritual recognition with your enlightened mind and your physical brain consciousness. The keynote of this is, of course, alignment. Have this thought of alignment in your consciousness as you proceed with the following meditation:

  1. Sound the Sacred Word audibly, regarding yourself as the physical man and holding the thought of physical coordination.
    Interlude wherein you take six long slow breaths, thinking as you do so about coordination.
  2. Sound the Sacred Word then inaudibly, regarding yourself as the astral-emotional man, holding whilst you do it the thought of the purification and the transmutation of desire.
    Interlude wherein you seek definitely to raise your consciousness higher and, whilst you are doing this, taking seven long slow breaths.
  3. Sound the Sacred Word inaudibly again, pondering this time upon the mind as the reflector of the light of the soul and endeavoring to hold the mind steady in that light.
    Interlude wherein you aspire to soul consciousness whilst taking ten long slow breaths, raising your consciousness as high as you can.
  4. Sound the Sacred Word this time as the soul, realizing that the attention of the soul is definitely turned to the personality and that it seeks to control and dominate the personality.

When doing the slow breathing, endeavor to sit erect without tension, and see to it that at no time, when inhaling, you inflate the abdomen, but that the abdomen is held drawn in towards the spine below the diaphragm.

My blessing rests upon you, my brother. In these hard days remember with joy that the Hierarchy of spiritual forces stands.

NOTE: This disciple is still presumably active in the Tibetan's Ashram and close to him, but has disappeared in the chaos of the European war. [673]
