Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - L.D.O.
August 1946


I have for you today naught but a happy recognition. You have proceeded with your life task with patience, serenity and foresight. The dual life of a disciple (covering personality obligations and the chosen field of soul service) is being successfully attempted by you. Where the word "success" is used, I would remind you that the Master neither sees nor notices the small failures, the moments of distress or disturbance or the personality frictions which (from the angle of the observing disciple) seem to mar the picture. At intervals - rare at first but more frequent when the service rendered attains greater importance - the Master makes himself aware of the general progress, the growth of the general structure of service which the disciple is creating and the extension of his light in the world. It amuses us at times to note that some disciples (particularly those trained in the earlier, personality-tainted groups) believe the Masters pry into their daily lives, know their petty faults and silly little failures and are fully aware of all they think and do. We wonder sometimes where they think the Masters find the time, and why they should be so interested in habits of thought and action and speech which the disciple is rapidly overcoming.

We are only interested in the good which any individual may be demonstrating; only the good reaches us, except in the case of an entire group where the group interplay, the group action and the group effect does affect the Ashram. The quality of the vibration which is felt when contacting you is of the nature of harmlessness and of goodwill to all men.

I am pleased that you are following along the line of your second ray energy, and are occupied with seventh ray activity: that means that, inspired by the sense of unity which is inherent in the soul, you are working on the physical plane (the point of expression for the seventh ray) and bringing spirit and matter together. Remember always that this ray which is again coming into cyclic manifestation is the one [457] that relates the new and incoming spiritual energy and the substance or matter aspect which will respond to it, utilize it and eventually give it due form. Know therefore clearly what it is you are attempting to do.

The main hierarchical need today (apart from its need for workers) is the forming everywhere of such groups as yours, the relating of group with group within the range of influence of that super group, the Hierarchy. Such groups are forming now in their thousands and are to be found in every land, and they will eventually blend and fuse together into one great movement of goodwill, which is spirit in actual expression. Aspirants everywhere, Arcane School students the world over, and my group of special workers such as yourself, must contact these groups, bringing them together on one point only, and that is Goodwill. Each group must necessarily be left free to proceed with its own destiny and mode of work. Unity is a necessary ideal and is the reverse side of Goodwill. Untidily, when the right time comes, these groups must issue a great manifesto to the world - identical manifestos being issued in each country by all the groups who stand for world unity and goodwill. Thus they will make the word "goodwill" carry power throughout the planet, whilst the disciples and aspirants will, through their thought, make the word "unity" carry hidden power. Thus a vast band of men of goodwill will be working untidily, yet independently, and there will be made available - in moments of world crisis - an organized, ready and worldwide public opinion of such strength and organization that it cannot be ignored.

Your life pattern, my brother, is now established; seek not unduly to change it, but seek to make your home a center of spiritual light, and seek to make your order so vibrant, so alive, that other groups may gain stimulation from it. You have therefore a full life's work, and in that all aspects of your nature will find full mode of expression. For disciples, only those tasks which call forth the full quota of innate effectiveness are of real value.

Should you find it possible, I would ask you to aid (to the utmost of your ability) your brother disciple, F.C.D., whose rays are closely allied with yours. He has thrown himself into [458] a supremely difficult task... and his future work will not be easy. Help him; he is one of our agents who is worthy of all aid, and though temporarily in my Ashram, is a powerful worker in the Ashram of K.H. - his Master and mine. You can work also with power with J.W.K-P. whose rays, with one difference, are the same as yours.

In twenty-five years' time enough work will have been done by groups such as yours so that the pattern of unity in the world will be distinctly seen. The theory will be comprehended and much straight application will be made. Unity will become a definite world goal in a sense different to the present one. The words "The souls of men are one" will be recognized doctrine of every world faith. So go on with the work of unifying, my brother - in rain or shine.

I have asked myself what I could suggest to you for meditation. The vision you have, and I believe will never lose it. Definitely planned meditation is not so easy for you, and yet - in order to make the vision factual - meditation is a basic essential, for just as it remains eternally true that "as a man meditateth in his heart so is he," it is also equally true that as a man meditateth in his head so will his vision appear on Earth. A great safeguard for you exists in the elimination of all personality problems - yours or those of anyone else - from your current meditation project; that project you will have to set for yourself each year, and adhere to it. Its theme must grow out of the work of unifying - out of the work you have set yourself.

My brother, link humility with that task; seek not to link groups with your group, but recognize your group and all other similar groups as parts of a worldwide spiritual movement which (when it reaches momentum) results in unity for all. A super-organization which emphasizes unity is the last thing to be desired; a multiplicity of living organisms held loosely together by cooperation, constant communication and possessing identity of goal and of purpose is what the world needs today...

I assign you no specific meditation. Work out your own, but let it adhere to the general concept with which I have constantly presented all of you. You can (on your own and as [459] an accepted disciple) seek entrance into the life of the Ashram and thus contact me. This may take time, but the link is strong and elastic (ponder on that term) and adherence to the rules will ensure success.

My blessing rests upon you and on your aspiration.
