Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.V.B.
August 1946


You have profited much from the attention you paid to the last instruction I gave you; you have also done a good and creative task, aiding A.A.B. Even though it did not involve your own rays, I suggested your working temporarily along first ray lines because it would strengthen you greatly and bring the Will aspect more definitely into expression. You will have realized that it has been necessary for you to develop more will and fiery determination and powerful understanding, prior to transfer into the Ashram of K.H. This transfer will eventually take place, but you are not yet ready [566] to stand the strong Shamballa pressure which is ever to be experienced in the Ashram of a Chohan. Mine, as you know, is an Ashram subsidiary to his.

Why, therefore, did I direct you towards the will aspect when both Ashrams are on the second ray and you are predominantly a second ray disciple? Because the subsidiary Ashrams deal with the ray qualities in action and in service, whilst the major or senior Ashrams concern in all cases the will in action through the ray qualities. This is possible because the major Ashrams are presided over by those who have achieved the sixth initiation; Ashrams such as mine are under the guidance of a Master or Initiate of the fifth degree.

You have needed much to study the nature of the will. A disciple's ideas on this subject are apt to be far removed from the reality; the understanding of the will is a progressive matter and disciples on all rays have to arrive at comprehension of Will activity as they move forward.

Perhaps some idea of what I am trying to convey anent the work done in the Ashram of a Master or that done in the Ashram of a Chohan would come to you if you meditated upon the two words: Goodwill and the Will-to-Good. The first is worked out as qualifying the life in all Ashrams under the care of a Master of the Wisdom; the Will-to-Good is developed and understood in the Ashrams of those of still greater attainment. The first concerns the Plan whilst the second deals with Purpose. Again, in this same connection, you have: Vision and Illumination. I have here given all of you a vital hint as to the distinction between the work of the two types of Ashrams.

You can also, if you so choose, work out the same idea in the linking of the three periodical vehicles, finding a third word, allied and descriptive, to form a sequential educational picture:

  1. Sight - Vision - Illumination.
  2. Action - Plan - Purpose.
  3. Self-will - Goodwill - Will-to-Good. [567]

You would find the creation of similar combinations of spiritually explanatory words a valuable exercise.

I infer not here, my brother, that your will is weak. It is constantly oriented towards that which is good and towards the Hierarchy. But the use of the spiritual will as it can affect and direct the affairs of the personality is another thing altogether; it is here that you must seek to learn the direct action of the will of the soul as you face the opportunities and crises of life. I would therefore suggest to you the following type of meditation. You know enough of the meditation process to work it out through the years into your own reflective pattern of living, as it gradually takes effect and you see deeper into the subject of the will.

  1. Sound the OM consciously as:
    1. The physical body, using the brain as the center of dedication,
    2. The astral body, "lifting up the heart unto the Lord" thereby, in reality, ignoring the existence of the astral body,
    3. As the mind, orienting it with directness towards the soul.
  2. Then sound the OM three times as the soul, flooding the triple instrument with light and love.
  3. Then give some time to the expression of goodwill by the personality.
  4. Center the consciousness anew in the soul, orienting your soul-infused personality towards the Spiritual Triad. This will require the use of the imagination, until such time as it is factual.
  5. Then take the following themes sequentially into meditative reflection, taking one each month and - when completed - resuming the sequence.
    1. From the center where the Will of God is known.
    2. Let purpose rule the little wills of men.
    3. The purpose which the Masters know.
    4. The purpose which the Masters serve.
    5. Let Light restore the Plan on Earth. [568]
    6. Let Love restore the Plan.
    7. Let Power restore the Plan on Earth.
    8. Let his Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
    9. To the accomplishment of his Will, I dedicate myself from now until eternity.
  6. Sound the OM three times inaudibly.

Call on me when you will, but only at need. The words "when you will" have an occult significance. It is the use of the will which is needed when the attention of the Master is needed, in the case of a chela at your point of ashramic contact. Your link with me remains unbroken.
