Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.V.B.
To  R. V. B.

September 1943

It is, my brother, a source of satisfaction to me to have you functioning again as a recognized member of my group of chelas. You and I knew always that the link was indissoluble and that the interlude of interior work and the period wherein you worked out karma (engendered many years ago) was both needed and fruitful. It is of great value to the soul when the personality consciously recognizes the activity of karma and adheres to the complete working out of the effects of earlier relationships so that to that relation the word "finis" can be written. Disciples should remember that when a karmic relation has been recognized upon the physical plane and the needed action has been taken, two possibilities are presented, according to whether the karma entailed was temporary or the relation enduring. One possibility is that spiritual identification takes place and the relation can then never be broken, or the transaction ends in an entirely correct manner by the cessation for all time of the relationship. These periods of decision and adjustment are most difficult, but curiously enough, when the disciple interiorly holds the right attitude (even if bewildered) the decision is seldom his. Life, circumstance, events or people take care of the situation and - holding on to his soul - the disciple stands steady until the problem or relationship disappears.

You stand now within my Ashram with clearer knowledge [559] and a more assured faith. Fuller service opens up before you - service which you can render in the place where you are and in spite of a physical vehicle which at times gives you much trouble and difficulty. Let not the physical limitation unduly control you, but pass courageously along the Lighted Way in spite of, as well as because of, the problems and difficulties. Forgive my twisting the old phraseology in this manner.

The link between you and A.A.B. grows closer each year and this you have yourself inwardly recognized. There is much that you can do to help her, for her confidence in you is great and she needs the kind of help which you can give. Her work grows heavier, her health is seriously impaired, and the needs of the world press heavier upon her than any of you - no matter how close - can ever guess. She values your cooperation and you can do much to interpret the work that emanates from my Ashram and thus aid seeking souls. To this work I call you afresh.

The meditation which I am going to ask you to do is in the nature of an act of service. It has little reference to yourself, but much to something that is close, very close, to my heart. I would ask you to take the new book, Discipleship in the New Age, and each day meditate upon its significance, its usefulness and its teaching value in this coming postwar period. Read it carefully, e'en when you know much of what is said; build a thought-form of the book and see it going forth to the very ends of the Earth. This book, if rightly distributed, can act as a great magnet, drawing people from all over the planet into the Ashrams of the Masters, and thereby increasing the potency of the workers for humanity as well as increasing them numerically. This book should go forth upon the wings of meditation, and you can be a potent focal point upon the inner planes of such a meditation process, if you so desire. Will you join with me, my brother, in this launching of this book upon its career of service? I know that you will render this service to those who seek for the Light, and to me, for I am one of the distributors of the Light.

Increasingly must your life be filled with this kind of [560] service; it will lead to the establishing of lines of relationship; these, in later lives, will be less tenuous and will demonstrate to you as the nucleus of that group which every disciple begins to gather around him, preparatory to forming his own Ashram in a still later life. Thus the whole question of radiation and magnetism lies at the foundation of the hierarchical method of work. A disciple becomes spiritually magnetic; his radiation begins to make itself felt; this must inevitably be the case when head and heart are consciously related. Gradually that magnetism and that radiation make their presence felt in the disciple's environment and evoke response from others. Not only so, but the magnetic-radiatory vibration attracts the attention of the Master, and the disciple finds his way into the Ashram along the line or the beam of his own radiatory activity, which has been akin to that of the Ashram. There, the intensified training he receives makes him still more spiritually efficient and "esoterically attractive" in the world of men. He continues with his task of gathering to him those whom he can help and who recognize him as their chosen helper and guide. Thus is an Ashram formed - each on its ray vibration, and each taking much time and lives of choice and of radiation. Today sees many disciples - such as you - being trained to handle this phase of the hierarchical work among men. This might be stated to be the underlying motive and hierarchical purpose for the Arcane School. Each disciple in my Ashram should be aware of the intent that this life and the next should see him beginning to gather to himself his own. This new book is intended to aid in this process, and it is upon this aspect that I would ask your aid in meditation.

Let me now give you six statements which can form, if you so desire, six seed thoughts upon this particular theme during the coming year.

  1. The Ashram pulsates with life. Its radiation penetrates the outer gloom and dark; waiting aspirants, one by one, and all alone, appear within the beam of light.
  2. Along that beam the chela travels towards the central [561] point of light, the Master in his Ashram. The Master waits. He moves not forth but quietly radiates.
  3. The chela enters through the door into the Ashram and stands before the Master of his life. He knows himself to be a soul. He knows that now his mind and all the lower natural forces must radiate the light he has attained.
  4. As one by one the chelas find their way into the Ashram and to the central Light, the light therein intensifies. The radiation of the Ashram waxes to a great intensity. The tiny beam of light focused within the chela's heart, directed by his eye, penetrates in turn the outer gloom and is seen by those who wait.
  5. Within the Ashram I have taken my place. My little light is merged and blended with the greater light, for thus I best can serve. I face the Master and know his light and mine to be the same. I turn and send my light into the dark, to guide some wanderer home.
  6. Grant me the light that I may shine. Let me throughout the world of time and space radiate light, create a light, transmit the light, and treading thus the Lighted Way (which is my Lighted Self), enter the light and so return the light to those who need, to those likewise from whence it came.

Thus, my brother and my friend, travel life's way; work in my Ashram; aid your fellowmen, and know the joy of constant service and sacrifice.
