MY BROTHER:

We are to work together for a while and I seek to help. Your first objective is to set up an understanding relation with your group members and with myself. No groups belonging to the Masters or affiliated with their Ashrams, such as are now planned under the new impulse emanating from the inner side, can function adequately unless there is willing and voluntary cooperation between the units who compose the group. This is not always easy.

You have been asking yourself on what grounds have you been chosen out of the many possible aspirants to do this particular work? Partly for karmic reasons, my brother - a karma that has touched mine at various points, and partly because the inner light has been fanned to a flame by your faithful adherence to the ordained duty. This warrants a further fanning of that flame by those of us who are seeking helpers in the outer world. Your objective is and has been service. This we know and to increase your capacity to serve is my objective. Are you willing to be taught and will you voluntarily attempt to conform to my suggestions? You can at any time cease to work and can drop out at will. There is no compulsion in this work of service which love of humanity and of the Great Ones calls forth.

Your attention has not primarily been fixed on the art of healing, yet you can - if you will - heal with potency those emotional ills which are deep seated in the astral body; this latent and unrealized power of yours must be developed and brought to usefulness. Some people heal those afflicted with physical ills. Some work in the field of psychology and deal with those [190] troubles which have a more mental basis. Others (and you amongst them) can aid in stabilizing the emotional or astral bodies of those distraught. This I can teach you to do. But first of all, we must get you into a better organized condition so that you can present to your soul an aligned and clear channel through which spiritual force may flow.

For a while the focus of your attention must be upon the heart center. To this end a meditation which you will find in this instruction will be of service to you if you will work at it for the space of six months. . . .

Your main difficulty and the main hindrance to your usefulness lies in the over-activity of your mind; this does not make you especially critical of other people but it does keep you yourself in a constant state of questioning and of bewilderment about the fundamentals by which humanity lives. A questioning of the unanswerable is a waste of time, my brother. The attempt to define the undefinable and to measure the mind of immensity is futile. Work, therefore, at the production of that inner mechanism of contact which exists as yet only in embryo within your personal ring-pass-not. Remember that only through right meditation, useful thinking, and the practice of harmlessness can this mechanism be duly developed. When developed, the futility of your questioning will be seen, for you will know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Think with simplicity.

I give you, my brother, a special piece of work to be done during the next six months. In my various books and writings I have referred much to healing and to the new developments in relation to the etheric body. Will you go through all of them and cull from them passages which have reference to healing in any form and to those passages which deal with people connected with the healing art. Thus will you serve me and my group of disciples and make that which I have said more easily available in compact form for the group use. This will be a real service.

To you I give this message: Seek not the reason yet for all that does appear, but learn to love and do. Work from the heart and not from the head and balance your unfoldment. With heart and head aligned, the healing force can flow with power through you to others. [191]
