Discipleship in the New Age II - Talks to Disciples - Group Instruction
September 1943


The New Seed Group has now been in existence for several years. During this time, I have only been in communication with you annually. Those who are in preparation for initiation must inevitably work alone. I would have you remember this. There are, as you know, three sources of inspiration which indicate to the disciple - struggling on the physical plane - his goal:

  1. His own soul - through direct contact, as the result of alignment.
  2. The Master - through impression, as a result of sensitivity.
  3. The Ashram group - through service, as a result of interplay.

Later, as the initiate-disciple makes progress and as he builds the antahkarana, the energy of the one Life, emanating from the Monad, brings in the fourth type of inspiration. To these spiritual sources of inspiration must be added lesser ones, such as mental impression, telepathically registered and coming [31] from a multitude of thinkers and minds. These work both as individuals and as members of a group. There is also emotional inspiration to which - in its most easily recognizable appearance - we give the name of aspiration. All these are, esoterically considered, evocative of desire, to be transmuted into will if (and only if) "the energy of the will-to good is the emanating principle and the actuating result of the inspired impulse; it must constitute the motivating impulse at the center of the disciple's being." Thus spoke one of the Masters not long ago to a disciple who sought to grasp the synthetic effect of inspiration. It is the Will and its immediate evocation which is the major need of this particular group of my disciples. The hierarchical Plan is the objective of that will; the purpose of Sanat Kumara is the revelation which comes to those who demonstrate that will, and it is the strength of the divine Power which makes that will possible. Strength is to Power what desire is to aspiration, or what the personality is to the soul. It is the revelation of quality.

I have started this communication with this note of Will because the use of that will (under instruction) is the objective of your next year's work; as we proceed with the various phases of our study which I have earlier outlined, my use of this theme will emerge clearly in your consciousness.

It has seemed to me necessary to open this instruction with a brief resume of the past teaching. The pressure of life these days is very great; everybody is tired; you will therefore approach this fresh addition to the teaching with renewed zest if the past teaching is clearly apprehended and is clearly illumined in your minds.

What is the task which confronts you, both as individuals and as a group? It is a fivefold task:

  1. To confront and deal adequately with your own personal Dweller on the Threshold.
  2. To share - as a group - in humanity's effort to confront the group Dweller on the Threshold; this "Dweller" is constructed of the evil desires of all mankind, of humanity's mistakes and weaknesses, thoughts, [32] distorted strengths and perverse motives. This confronting is one of the objectives of the present world war.
  3. To arrive at that understanding which is the foundation of wisdom, which is the result of a developed intuition, and which is also an intelligent application of the truths apprehended.
  4. To stand - as a group - before the Angel of the Presence.
  5. To take initiation yourself, as an individual, and also as a coherent unit in the group effort towards initiation.

Other goals will emerge as you strive, study and serve; the simplicity, however, of the above statement will convey to you your immediate objectives. These objectives must be thought through together and their import must be grasped as a group. The contribution which each of you can make to the cause of clear thinking, ardent aspiration and determined application may sound easy and quite familiar. The moment, nevertheless, these goals become techniques and are expressed factually, their simplicity seems to vanish and the proposition appears extremely hard.

Since my last communication to you, certain changes have taken place in the personnel of the group. L.U.T. has been dropped (temporarily and for this particular incarnation) out of the group, and therefore out of my Ashram. The constant condition of irritation in which he lived was the result of the ceaseless conflict between his aspiring soul nature and his inert and essentially selfish personality; that is now over and for the rest of this life it can be assumed that he has reached his high water mark and is passing through a period - definitely temporary - of retrogression or of recession. Next life will see him pass triumphantly his present point of attainment, leaving him stabilized upon the Way. He remains, therefore, tenuously linked with the New Seed Group - a linking which is stronger upon the subjective side than upon the outer.

Three of your comrades in the earlier groups have rejoined [33] the group; the demand of their souls for reinstatement has been recognized by me and has evoked from me due response. Their linking with the group was not tenuous but was a strongly knit cable. H.S.D. has again taken her place among you, having learnt some measure of inner calm and mental poise. L.T.S.K., I felt, needed the protection of the group against his constantly recurring glamors and his innate glamor-making tendency; I, therefore, reinstated him for his own protection so that in a coming life he can start earlier, and move forward with greater precision. R.V.B., having learnt the lessons which an interlude of complete aloneness can give to the ardent disciple (who craves and rests back upon companionship) is now ready to prove what he essentially has ever been - a strength and a center of poised peace to his group brothers. He is a definite asset in the group work and has reached a point in his unfoldment where it will not hurt him to know this.

So, my brothers, we face a new cycle of work and one in which C.D.P. and P.D.W. - working on the inner side of life - are definitely sharing. The latter has moved on into the Ashram of his Master, the Master Morya. He is now preoccupied with the work of breaking up - along with other trusted first ray disciples - the crystallization which is the disastrous condition of France. His past incarnation in the French nation has well fitted him for this task; his heart of love and his very profound development will also enable him greatly to assist, thus offsetting the destructive tendencies of the first ray worker. He has never been destructive in his application of truth.

C.D.P. is working continuously with the children of the world (including those who died victims of the horrors of war), preserving inviolate her affiliation with my Ashram but working in a group composed of disciples upon all the rays and whose personalities - in their last incarnation - were upon all the many nationalities; they are doing what they can and must be done to salvage the consciousness of the children and to preserve them from complete disintegration.

K.E.S., who died prior to the reorganization of the New Seed Group, is now subjectively affiliated with the group [34] and must be regarded by you as a fellow worker. His work is very largely with those who pass over to the inner side from the British and American Armed Forces; for this he is eminently well equipped, being English by birth but having spent long years in the United States; he has also worked for many years in the spiritualistic movement.

I am giving you information anent your group brothers who are not in physical bodies because I seek to have you realize the unity of all life, the identity of purpose and the close sense of relationship which characterizes an Ashram. A Master's Ashram has people working both on the outer and on the inner planes and in this work, the Master sees no difference, being released from the concepts of time and space. This has relation to the "double life pattern of the disciple" to which I referred when I last communicated with you.

At that time, I gave you no explicit instruction or individual meditations. I gave each of you six statements upon which to ponder. Through the close consideration of these statements you can create fresh aspiration and a renewed tendency to creative living. Statements such as these are formulations of truth and are also voiced concepts of spiritual import. They are potent in their transforming effect, if rightly used. I have not been too satisfied with the results of my past requests to you. The pressure of life has been great these days; to that pressure many of you have succumbed. You might have carried through and been more effective had you given careful attention to your thought life.
