Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - R.L.U.
TO  R. L. U.

April 1935

BROTHER OF OLD:

In this address, you get a clue to the answer of your question: Why was I chosen as a member of this group? Because an old time link connects us, and because of a hidden development which is very unusual, but which as yet is hindered from all outer expression by your inhibiting personality. These two factors: your old relation with myself, and the beauty of that which lies revealed within you, prompts me to offer you this opportunity for specialized training. You have been puzzled over this choice, having no particular admiration for the quality of your personality. Is this not so? I am choosing my words with care. You are prone to be disgusted with yourself - an inchoate and oft unrealized disgust. That is due to the ferment of the hidden spiritual life which you have yet to offer to your fellowmen. You have a faculty for understanding which you have seldom used, and a power to work as a psychologist which is as yet entirely unrealized by yourself, either mentally or in fact. It is this hidden something that I have realized and sought to draw forth.

Your life setting had to be changed before it was possible for you to release this soul quality in service. As you draw it forth during the next few years, you will find it shedding a light upon your own past relationships; you may then feel pained at much that you may have failed to do in the past. [532] Forget not, that under the Law governing disciples, opportunities will inevitably arise which will enable you to adjust past conditions and any faulty handling. See that the dawning spirit of love irradiates your life and pours through you to others, and see to it also that you render back to all, the love which you have received and will receive.

I am asking A. A. B. to give you a copy of a meditation used in the Arcane School. I have made certain changes and enrichments which I will indicate to you... Follow this, my brother, for the next six months. For your seed thoughts I suggest the following words:

  • 1st and 2nd months - The golden light of love irradiates my Path. I am that Path.
  • 3rd and 4th months - As a beacon light in a dark place, I radiate the light. I stand in spiritual being.
  • 5th and 6th months - I affirm gratitude to all Light-bearers. I affirm love to all I meet. I am myself the love of God, the light that shines, the Way.

The very simplicity of my instruction may almost disappoint you, yet there is relatively so little to do before the inner beauty finds release that I seek to have you first achieve that. Then we can begin our work. In my next instruction, if you make the expected progress, I will start the occult training which you so much desire. One thing I will ask you to do, however: Ponder upon the use of the creative imagination and the power of visualization. I will also ask you to embody the results of this pondering and thought in a paper, thus externalizing your inner recognitions.
