Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - L.D.O.


To  L. D. 0.

August 1940

One of the things, my brother, which is being developed in your consciousness is the basic spiritual fact that "whether in the body or out of the body" (as the initiate Paul expressed it), the life of the disciple does not stand still but inevitably - if he is sincere and earnest - proceeds from revelation to revelation. But for the pledged disciple, such as you are, this revelation is not confined to mystical depths and heights but becomes increasingly part of the recognizable brain consciousness. This is a lesson which you are learning rapidly and on that fact I congratulate you. Continue so to do and in the coming period of reconstruction you will be of effective service.

But, brother of mine, to be truly effective in the manner desired, you must cultivate the attitude of being only a clear unobstructed channel, and you must not block that channel with your ideas, your plans and your physical plane activities. I would not have you cease planning and working actively but I would have you more discriminating and cautious. I would have you ponder on the relative usefulness of inspiring many to active work in the service of humanity, or sponsoring your own activities and focusing all your efforts upon organization work. Such organization work has ever faintly glimmered you. The arousing of the desire to serve and the kindling of the flame of intelligent love for mankind in the hearts of your fellowmen could provide for you an adequate field of service. It would enlist both your personality and your soul in active cooperation and is something you can do unusually well. The gift of divine inspiration, as it can be used to affect and galvanize others into activity, is rare, but is for you a natural result of your spiritual Polarization. This [444] you know, and of this faculty you should increasingly avail yourself. Seek, as I have earlier told you, to be; aim at being a conduit for spiritual force; cultivate the power of identification with those you seek to inspire, for this leads to direct transference of energy; develop divine indifference as to your form of service and ponder deeply on the thought of "service by radiation."

As you already know, the five rays governing your monadic expression as soul and personality are not particularly well balanced. There is in this incarnation too much of the second ray line of approach to divinity; you are primarily 2...4 where your rays are concerned. Where the personality ray, the mental ray and the astral ray are closely allied there is always found an easy problem of inner contact, relation and integration. When, however, the aggregate of inner energy comes to outer expression upon the physical plane, there appears what I might call a lack of stiffening and a too fluid response to spiritual impulses and ideals. There is a correct and undeviating life tendency towards the realm of spiritual reality, but in the field of manifestation and of creative activity there is frequently a changeableness and a developed habit of experimentation. The very versatility of the second ray (twice repeated in your life expression) tends to confuse the issue of service and its correct rendering in your mind. You do so many things, my brother; if you look back over your life, you will find that it is composed of short periods wherein you were intensely preoccupied with what you sincerely believed was the purpose of the moment. The time has now come when the purpose of the soul, in time and space, must become a pronounced conviction governing all future activity and all expression upon the physical plane, subordinating your entire lower nature (the three bodies) with fixed intent to the directed will of the soul.

For you, I would repeat, service by radiation is the way. To bring this about, it will be necessary for you to evoke the latent will which must be developed and controlling in you by the time the third initiation comes; at that time the monadic influence is predominantly that of the divine, purposeful [445] will. The expression of this higher aspect of the will, in relation to the three rays of aspect on which all initiates are eventually to be found, is likewise threefold:

  1. There is the dynamic will, as it is expressed by first ray egos.
  2. There is the inclusive radiatory will of second ray souls. This is the kind of will-expression and recognized life purpose with which you must learn to put yourself in direct contact.
  3. There is the magnetic will of the third ray ego which draws, attracts, manipulates and arranges in accordance with divine purpose. This is not the same kind of magnetism as that of love.

In the meditation, therefore, which I seek to give you, we will have this inclusive, radiatory will primarily in mind, and for the next few months I would have you follow these instructions...

Life is difficult these days but you lack not courage, and the sense of inner reality will hold you true to the goal and steady in expression. My attention turns towards you when you need it. I can be reached.
