Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - I.A.P.
August 1946


This is a new way for me to address you, but you have endeared yourself to me by your patient persistence and your undeviating adherence to the service of the Hierarchy. For many years you have done our work in a most difficult sphere. I say this to you because I would not have you spend time (or should I say, waste time, my brother?) in wishing you had done the work better or differently, or in the unrewarding task of self-depreciation. I would tell you quite simply that we are not ungrateful and we are not dissatisfied. The Latin field - by that I mean the sphere in which the Latin race predominates, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese - is one of the most difficult in which to work. The narrowness of thought induced by Roman Catholic Church control, the crystallization which comes from a very ancient development, and (in South America) the wide mixture of races, make the task of bringing spiritual liberation one of peculiar difficulty.

Do you realize, my brother, that you have been drawing the plow over the ground in preparation for the New Age teaching for the first time, and that that ground is very hard, very stony, and at present relatively unproductive?

So be of good cheer. Your work is more fruitful than you realize and in some life you will see the results of the apparently unrewarding toil of the years of your spiritual enterprise. [508]

I have few instructions to give you. Proceed as heretofore, but deepen persistently your own inner life; give more time to quiet reflection and study than to the technicalities of the task; let others deal with the mechanics of the work whilst you seek to act as a spiritual reservoir from which they can draw strength and wisdom and understanding. The recognition of this phase of your work is perhaps the most important lesson you can learn at this time. You will experience a new power, the upwelling of new spiritual fervor, the joy of seeing others competently handling the mechanics of the work whilst you teach and aid them in their spiritual undertakings. Above all else, endeavor to reach and interest the young people. They are the hope of the future and are coming into incarnation subjectively aware of their predestined task of world reconstruction; you will find them acutely responsive to spiritual contacts, particularly if presented in non-religious terms. Count, therefore, on this and try to reach them.

I am going to give you a somewhat brief meditation exercise to be done by you twice a day - on arising in the morning and the last thing at night, prior to going to sleep. It should not take you long to do, but - if done correctly and with as much of your first ray soul integrated into it as you can invoke - it will greatly aid you.

  1. Sound the OM inaudibly three times.
  2. Then, having achieved inner quiet and relaxed mental focusing, seek, with an alert consciousness, to contact:
    1. Your soul.
    2. My Ashram.
    3. Me, your Master.
      You thus, through the imagination, create a triangle of energy:


As familiarity with this meditation is developed, you should eventually arrive at a contact, at a registered sense of spiritual power (expressed through your second ray personality) and at such an increase of love and light that your sphere of service will recognize it, even if - at first - you do not.

  1. Then, after quiet acceptance and a period of silent reflection, you will deliberately pour out the inflowing spiritual power into:
      1. Your immediate environment,
      2. The Arcane School, of which your work in South America is an integral part,
      3. The Goodwill Movement you have aided in starting in South America.
      4. This type of meditation constitutes a definite act of service and should - when done in the morning - prove pronouncedly strenuous. It involves some practice in visualization and (where I and the Ashram are concerned) the use of your confident, creative imagination.

  2. Then say the Great Invocation, slowly and with much mental intention, pausing after each of the four stanzas for quiet thought and reflection.
  3. Then again link up in thought with me, your Master. Sound the OM inaudibly again three times, and then proceed about your daily work.

My blessing continues to rest upon you.
