|Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - L.F.U.|
|TO L. F. U.
I have watched you for some years now, little as you may have suspected it. It was under my definitely applied impression that you found your way into my group of disciples in which you now work, and at the same time you found your destined field of service. I am glad to welcome you into this group of students. The personal touch is wise with you for you neither fear nor crave it.
In the life of every aspirant, there comes a life wherein he finds the group to which he belongs. I refer to the inner group of disciples and the outer group of servers with whom he can and must cooperate. When these two discoveries synchronize ( which is not always the case) much time is saved and the opportunity is great. This has been the case with you, and this I believe you are beginning to realize.
Your soul ray, my brother, is the first, and your personality ray is the third. Owing to the pressure of the times and of the work for this immediate cycle, you may have heard it said that I am relieving some of the Teachers on the inner side and thus setting them free for wider and more exacting service. I am handling some of their pupils for them and preparing some  of their aspirants (whom they have been watching) for the stage of accepted discipleship. In this last category you now find yourself. It was the coming under my influence subjectively that led you to the realization that the deepening of your love nature was, for you, the next step in your equipping yourself for service. Your ray combinations necessitated this and my second ray influence, therefore, helped. There is not an aspirant in the world who could not well intensify his divine love nature, not his astral emotional love nature. But you need to comprehend always the reason for any development and hence my explanation.
You have come a long distance quite rapidly upon the Path lately, and have definitely increased both your vibratory capacity and your influence. Some years of potent service are possible to you and again another explanation is in order. He whom you will some day know as your Master when admitted in full consciousness into his group of disciples (the Master M.) is the head of all esoteric schools in the world at this time. Hence you can see why you found your way into my group of disciples and why also you are working actively and fruitfully in its executive and organizational end. It is in line with your inner group force and this, rightly understood and used, can make of you a useful focal point for the Master's energy in the place where you have chosen to serve. You must learn to differentiate, therefore, as time goes on and your sensitivity increases, between:
This you will not be able to do for some time yet, but the developing of this type of sensitivity is, for you, a needed unfoldment, and will come eventually, if you will follow my instructions with care, and let true love increasingly sweep  through the lower personal self. It can sweep through, my brother, because (as you rightly feel) you do know somewhat of the nature of love. It is, however, one thing to love, and another thing to be a channel of the love of the soul and of the group.
Your sphere of work is clear to you, and there you are both needed and useful, which is all that you desire. The keynote of your daily work should be understanding, just as the key note of your work with yourself on all three planes should be fearlessness, with love coloring all your life. These are the three words which express what should be the color-tone of your life expression from now until the call comes for you to serve on the other side of the veil of life. Ponder on these three words - understanding, courage or fearlessness, and love - for the remainder of your life of service, for "as a man thinketh, so is he."
We will now change your meditation and for the future, until I again make a change, I would suggest the following:
1. Alignment with the soul and a definite conscious polarizing of realization as high in the head and as high on the mental plane as possible. Then pause.
2. Then look out, in your imagination, over the world of men. See that world as one of light, with here and there intensifications of the light in certain localities or centers or areas.
3. Then sound the O. M. breathing it forth into the personality.
4. Next, do some mental work in meditation, holding the mind steady in the light; carry your service in my group and any other aspect of your work in the world into that light, seeing it all as part of the one great service. For you, intercession is peculiarly useful, for it tends to promote understanding.
5. Seek then to get in touch with your group brothers, holding them too, as a group, in the light.
If you so desire, on two days in the week, you can follow any meditation which you find useful and helpful. I seek to leave you free.
