Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - D.E.I.
September 1940

MY BROTHER:

You are in a position of trust and - if you so choose - your responsibilities can increase and you go forward in the service of humanity. You are now passing through a cycle of difficult preparation, prior to moving out into a wider expansion of consciousness and, consequently, of usefulness. This, I think you know and have always sensed. You have, at the same time, a sense of being blocked and frustrated in your ideals and of failing to express them as you would like. You feel unable to demonstrate and to be what you know you are. This is a very useful point to have reached, provided that you do not stay there.

The reason for this sense of frustration (as I could easily prove to you) is that the glamor of pride holds you in its grip, working out usually as a quick self-defense and constantly erecting carefully prepared barriers. I do not seek here, however, to enlarge on this. I would ask you to ponder on my suggestions until May when I will give you, along with the entire group, your personal instructions and your individual direction, and detail to you the readjustments and changes which you would be well advised to make in your life attitudes. If you [504] can then avail yourself of the hints which I seek to give you, you can be of definite service (all of you) in the coming period of reconstruction, provided humanity comes through the terrific crisis now upon it.

Note, if you will, how this pride controls so much of your physical plane activity and reactions; note also how your first ray personality and your first ray astral vehicle tend to increase this tendency in you. Here, in the overcoming of pride, lies your major life task and the crux of your life's battle. Sweetness, humility and the willingness to recognize values which at present are not quickly recognized by you are for you the way of release. A deep but temporary distrust of your own judgment where people are concerned will be most useful to you, for you see them ever in relation to their reaction to you and not from the angle of what you can give to them, and - in your giving - aid them to greater usefulness of life expression. Your positive and powerful temperament leads you to draw to yourself negative people and you are happier with them than with more positive people. When you can attract the positive kind of people and find your major pleasure in your contacts with the positively polarized disciples of the world, you will have the first indication that the glamor of pride is disappearing.

I have confidence and trust in you, my brother.

NOTE: This disciple continues in the same position of trust and is cooperating diligently with the work of the Tibetan.
