Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - J.W.K-P.

BROTHER OF MINE:

I would conjure you to face the future with joy and optimism. Courage you always have but joy you lack. With you, as with F. D. C., much of the physical plane activity is hampered by etheric devitalization, though the causes producing the existing condition differ. During the past years, I have many times conveyed to you a message the summation of which lies in the emphasis I lay on steadfastness in meditation. Etheric vitalization lies in meditation where you are concerned and the bringing in of energy to your physical body through its instrumentality. Diet, fresh air and freedom from concern all aid the process but the main cure for you and the source of success in all your work lies in your persistence in meditation and your contemplative endurance.

The conservation of energy is wise, yet you have untold reserves upon which to draw and as yet you use them not as you might. As before I have told you, you make not adequate use of the meditation period and your physical body suffers in consequence and therefore your work. There is much to be done and through meditation you can accomplish much. You might ask me, my brother, how to utilize the meditation period so as to benefit from it physically. The physical body will take care of itself when the source of supply lies open to use. A modification - to be made by yourself - of the attached meditation would be in order for you, omitting the detail of the stage of ascent but visualizing the inflow of energy to the centers in the etheric body and the vitalization, above all, of the heart and the throat centers. This should be carried forward in a rapid and definite manner and the rest of the meditation period should be given to group work, and to a consideration of the plans to be followed in the unfolding work of the larger group to which this group belongs.

You will comprehend what I mean, brother of mine, when I repeat to you the ancient formula:

"Out of the lotus in the head springs the flower of bliss.
Its earliest form is Joy. [158]
Out of the lotus in the heart springs the flower of love.
Its earliest indication, wisdom is.
Out of the lotus in the throat emerges the flower of living forms.
The earliest sign is understanding of the Plan."

Joy, wisdom and the Plan! These are for you the three points which must be matured. For B. S. W. it was wisdom, strength and beauty. For you, these other three. You two are very close - closer than either of you have realized. Weakness for you both lies in the failure of one or other of the manifestations of power to flourish. When B. S. W. knows the true significance of beauty and you of joy, release and fuller service will be yours.
