Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.V.B.
November 1948


There is relatively little that I have to say to you in this year's "touch of recognition" which I am giving to all who are actively affiliated with my Ashram. The circumstances of your life are such that you are eminently capable of handling its issues and dealing with its crises yourself; that ordains for you, therefore, a somewhat unusual state of affairs in the life of discipleship. You have been vouchsafed an interlude wherein you can perfect your work for individual souls; you have been provided full preparation. I would have you ponder deeply upon these conceptions.

You have not in this life functioned in any way as a member of your race, once you had reached due years of understanding; you have been held possessively by no binding family ties, though you have always been in touch with your relatives; you have had no difficulty in assimilating the Ageless Wisdom and you have served the Hierarchy consciously for many decades; you are giving real help to A.A.B. and she is, I know, going to ask for a deepening of the nature of that help though not necessarily for an increase in its quantity... You have had the handicap of poor health which is not, in your case, a real handicap but a pronounced and definitely [569] planned role whereby the disciple learns certain lessons of detachment and above all registers - as he learns - the relative unimportance of form. These things have happened to you and these lessons have been presented to you for assimilation; you are now faced with a greatly deepened esoteric service which you still perform in the place where you are.

So you see, my brother, your life is rich and full and free and promises to be even more so. Your need is to acquiesce in the limitations of the physical body, which need not necessarily increase until old age is upon you, and at the same time to refuse recognition of that body so that it in no way impinges upon your consciousness in such a manner that it curtails or hinders your pledged service.

You have progressed beyond the stages of set meditations and definite forms; your requirement at this time is to start each day of your life with a steadily deepening period of spiritual recognition. In that period, you do four things:

  1. You render recognition to your own soul
    1. As one with the souls of men.
    2. As steadily fulfiling its life purpose.
  2. You render recognition to the Ashram with which you are connected and to the group of co-workers with whom you are determined to cooperate.
  3. You render recognition to me, your Master, D.K., by a flash of thought and of love.
  4. You recognize your personality as a divine server.

If you follow this apparently very simple procedure in the morning and at night prior to sleeping, you will discover for yourself a renewed dedication and a very deep insight into another layer (if I may so call it) of esoteric truth and of the divine consciousness.

We are forever linked as workers in the one Hierarchy and under the leadership of the Christ and his Successor in a distant century. Count heavily on this, my brother, and go forward with my love and blessing. [570]
