Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - D.L.R.
November 1944


In what sense do I call you this? For this appellation conveys no idle statement but is of deep significance. It is particularly so in your case and in reference to your individual relation to me. My last instruction should have indicated to you how deep is my comprehension of you and your nature, and how well I understand your problems, your limitations and your assets. Every Master needs to have such an understanding and to know infallibly what is in a disciple's heart and mind; he must understand what motivates his action. When also there is a karmic tie as well as a spiritual one, when there is a recognition of unity of purpose, plus a past history of close relationship when the Master was also only a disciple and the disciple was only an aspirant, then the words "Brother of mine" take on a deeper meaning. They [760] might indicate a steady moving forward, side by side, of a younger and an older brother, resulting in a consequent close relationship, easy contact and a deep comprehension. In this sense, therefore, my mode of addressing some of you is not simply significant of an occult truth but of an existent fact in the three worlds. There are four of you in this group who have such a relationship to me.

It is - between us - an old story. Others in this group, as you know, are temporarily under my instruction until such time as they have fitted themselves to fill vacancies in other Ashrams; still others are, for the first time, making contact with me in my Ashram, having had no previous contact with any Ashram. I bring these points to your attention because I would have you utilize a possibility which remains as yet a hoped-for event in your case - the possibility of a realized, easy contact with me. It has always been possible for you to contact me with facility but you have seldom realized it. I want you now to realize it and to develop into outer expression what has always interiorly existed.

How, brother of mine, can you do this? One definite means of intensifying this inner recognition would be to avail yourself more fully of the period of the Full Moon approach. For years you have all been utilizing this monthly opportunity but with relatively little results; this has somewhat surprised me for, on the side of the Ashram, there has been a great readiness for such an approach and an eagerness to stimulate "the process of absorption," as it is called. This is a process which serves to integrate the disciple regularly and cyclically into the consciousness of the Ashram, with subsequent and consequent results to the disciple.

I would ask you, therefore, each month and for the rest of your life to follow for three days a definite procedure... I ask this because I believe you have that persistent staying power which is characteristic of all those whose personalities are on the ray which is yours. The procedure will involve putting yourself en rapport with my Ashram and to register it in your physical brain consciousness. You may not and probably will not succeed in this endeavor immediately, but in due course of time and with persistent effort you [761] inevitably will. Think of me as you know me to be; let not your sixth ray devotional nature play any part in this process or contact. Bear in mind that first ray disciples are in my Ashram, and that there are aspects of my nature which are of first ray origin, but when you remember this, bear also in mind that the aspect to which I refer is Triadal.

The Masters have no personalities as you understand personality. Their conditioning factors are the three aspects of the Spiritual Triad, and these aspects, being creative, build the phenomenal apparatus or mechanism by means of which a Master makes contact with the three worlds. This means, consequently, that disciples will need to study with greater attention the teaching on the antahkarana, for it is via the antahkarana that they make contact with the Ashram and with the Master. Forget not that I have assured you that such a contact is relatively easy for you; the implications of this statement are clear. Let your reflection be upon the purpose of such a contact. Realize also that the intention of this work is to facilitate a great possibility which confronts you, that the urgency of the time demands "accomplished servers" and wise disciples, and that this urgency warrants an intensified training given disciples such as you. The contact with the Ashram will serve to emphasize in your mind the concept of yourself as the serving disciple. You are strong and able to take what the process requires; you can rest back on your own strength when it is implemented by an increasing clarity of vision. You see people and life more truly than you did when you were first affiliated with my group, and the last two years have brought about much change in this connection. Count on yourself and on your soul with greater confidence; move forward with surety towards the consummation of this life's effort.

I would call to your attention that in the instructions I gave you last year and in this one, you have a complete unit of teaching which can suffice you for the remainder of this life. Read both these instructions over once every month regularly, thus renewing your interest and your enthusiasm. It is interesting to observe that initiation is often taken (I might say it is usually taken) after passing the milestone of [762] half a century. The reason is that if the disciple can produce the needed staying power and the required enthusiasm - by which I mean dynamic purpose - he can then be trusted to handle the powers conferred with wisdom, to display the needed poise, and to proceed upon his outward way with humility and caution.

I have told you much in these last two instructions; they consummate the teaching which I have given you since 1933. Ponder on them. Act upon them and then strengthen the Ashram and present to the Masters a wise server and a trained companion on the Way.
