Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - L.D.N-C.
To  L. D. N-C.

April 1939

BROTHER OF OLD:

And what shall I say to you, fiery warrior in our work? Just this: In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength and in an all-inclusive love lies your opportunity. This, I think you know. You have made real progress in swinging free from the limitations of a sixth ray personality during the past three years. I have watched you now for seven years and you have broken loose in great measure from certain very definite handicaps. That which hinders you now is mostly old habits of thought and speech and these too must go. They must go, not through a drastically imposed inhibition, but swept away through the inflowing tide of love.

You have a difficult combination of rays, my brother, and these have powerfully conditioned your life. Your egoic ray is the first ray and your personality ray is the sixth Ray of Devotion. Power, will, devotion, idealism, fanaticism - such is the combination. Fortunately for you, in your last life, your personality ray was the second ray of love and so it had been for several previous lives. This has greatly aided in offsetting the dynamic destructive effects of your sixth ray force. Of this you should be very glad.

Now you are entering slowly into a new cycle of activity. Let it be distinguished by love and by no desire for anything for the separated self. You might reply to this by saying that you believe yourself to be free from all such desire. But, brother of mine, were you so free, you would not suffer so much over people or over the frustration which always comes - and always will - until the disciple no longer cares for success or non-success, for appreciation or for non-appreciation. Ponder on this and search your heart more closely. You are on the verge of real release and I tell you this for your comforting and help.

To carry forward this new service to which you have dedicated yourself, you need the releasing power of the tide of love which is the soul. Forget not that you are on the power ray. It is the power of love intelligently to serve. Let these words be the keynote of your reflection and endeavor for the next [263] few months. I will give you a meditation which will facilitate your effort...

I have also suggested that you do the attached review on Detachment. You will find it profitable to use for a while. Go forward in peace, and with assurance, my brother. You have much to give; much wisdom, much experience and much understanding. Often, however, you "stand in your own light," and your personality interposes itself between the real spiritual self and those whom you seek so ardently to serve.

NOTE: The pressure of life in Europe during the world war, 1939, has made it impossible for this disciple to continue at this time.
