Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - P.G.C.
August 1946


The past twelve months have been difficult for you in every aspect of your life but - what else can a disciple expect? The instructions I gave you last should have done much to carry you steadily forward, for an inner surety ever enables a disciple to surmount difficulties. The monotony of life itself, the cares of home and practice, the anxieties incident to the times and the constant sense of frustration have all contributed to what I might call your almost grim determination to stand steady in the light. Now comes the disbanding of the group, and a sense of failure which it naturally engenders.

I cannot too strongly urge upon you and upon all your group brothers the relative brevity of life. I say this not from the standpoint of the Christian ministry, which so frequently urges upon its members the remembrance of death, nor am I [585] referring to the imminent passing away of any of you in the group. I refer simply to physical plane living from the angle of the soul, who sees in it but a fleeting experience, leaving a residue of learning. Some particular life in some particular cycle may indeed be momentous and of outstanding importance, dignified by a reorientation, a decisive moving forward, the initiation of some service, the taking of some major initiation; but such lives are rare until somewhat late in the soul's experience.

For you, this present life has two factors of prime importance: the working off and termination of karma in relation to some people, and secondly, the attainment of the control of your sixth ray astral body. You entered life as a disciple upon the verge of acceptance and upon the periphery of the Ashram, even though your consciousness registered it not; you will enter your next incarnation having advanced in discipleship, and will rapidly achieve consciousness of the fact. For the remainder of this life there is for you a beautifying of all experience, the conscious rendering of that service to others which obliterates karma, the widening of your point of view, particularly in the realm of healing, where you are as yet still somewhat controlled by your sixth ray idealism, and the increasing admission of your second ray energy so as to control your organizing personality. Does this seem what you call a "tall order," my brother? Forgive my use of slang, but it is oft curiously descriptive. If you study carefully what I say you will see that you are already doing all these things and that all that I am asking is an intensification of present action.

I have therefore nothing spectacular or unusual to say to you today, and that in itself indicates much. You can be trusted to proceed as heretofore, but I would ask somewhat more.

I would ask you to undertake a special piece of work (of integrating work for me), and to do it in such a way that it does not become a formal service but a living process animated with purpose. I would ask you every Sunday to endeavor to contact the Ashram and myself (expecting no outer indication of success), and then - in my presence - name each [586] of the people in the groups of nine and in the new seed group, as well as the three other people who have been in receipt of "the Ashram papers," the Fourteen Rules for Disciples and Initiates.

This will take some time, as there have been many. It will be like picking up a linking thread and tracing it to the Ashram, thereby definitely strengthening the inner link. Even those who have passed on should be mentioned, for they are still active in the service of the Ashram. I give you this task because of your trained persistence and because of your seventh ray ability to link the world of form with the world of spiritual reality.

I have no fears for you, my brother. You are a sound and self-directing disciple. My care and attention, when you need me, are always available. When need arises you can seek my aid - your Master, friend and teacher - remembering that it will take you at least seven days to reach me. Ask A.A.B. to tell you why. But reach me you can.
