Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - E.E.S.
To  E. E. S.

March 1938

MY BROTHER:

You have been asked to join this group, composed of certain of my chosen students. You have been asked to join for three reasons and, knowing your enquiring and reasonable mind, I felt that my best approach to you would be to state what these three reasons are:

  1. There is a vacancy in the ranks of my disciples. This vacancy must be filled (in order to save time) by one whose interest in healing has been established, and who has had some experience in healing work. It must also be one who has been trained for some years in right methods of work.
  2. You have a definite karmic relation to two members in my group and, needless to say, you have a link with me, your Tibetan teacher and friend.
  3. You are free from two faults which have strongly colored the personnel of some of my groups; a tendency to criticize and to discuss each other and likewise a strong liking for close personality contacts. Neither of these attitudes interests you and you can therefore be of real usefulness in the group as a stabilizing force.

In view of these facts upon which I would ask you to ponder and in view of the relationship, I welcome you into this group for special training with the view of special service.

It is no easy matter to interject one's vibration into a group, or to start work in a group which has been functioning for several years and which has established its own rhythm. This [646] group is a difficult one. Some groups have work which automatically confines their attention to mental levels. Other groups are chosen because of their ability to work on astral levels. The task of this particular group is to work with power on physical levels; hence the definite personality tendencies and the desire for outer contact which several of the group members have so strongly demonstrated. I would have you bear this in mind and maintain watchfulness over yourself and helpfulness towards others. I would ask you, therefore, if you would do so, to take this summer for careful and serious study of all the instructions that the group have received so that - by a self-applied forcing process - you can start on an equal basis.

I am giving you no set meditation work until my next communication. This instruction will provide you with more than adequate meditation material, and I would ask you to do no more than read and ponder on it and assimilate as much as you can.

To bring you up to date with the other group members, I would like also to indicate to you not only your personality and soul rays (for this I always do with any new disciple) but also to indicate the rays of your personality vehicles.

Your soul ray is the seventh, which would enable you to work with facility in the new world which is emerging into manifestation with such rapidity. It will aid you also in producing order and rhythm in your environment; in these days of turmoil and difficulty, every rhythmic center is of value to us.

Your personality ray is the sixth. This gives you power upon the astral plane and, in consequence, it gives you a powerful and sensitive astral body with all the implications of success and failure which go with that situation.

The close juxtaposition of your soul and personality rays are an asset, not a hindrance. This leads to quick results on the physical plane when both types of energy are simultaneously applied. Ponder on this.

Your mental body is definitely on the fourth ray and it is through this fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict that you can establish a rapid rapport with your brothers. It makes for understanding, intelligently applied, and for the emergence of beauty through that established rapport. It is [647] the quality in you which gives you an ordered sense of color, proportion and of harmony in your planned environment. It also evokes in you at times a violent reaction to that which seems incorrect, inharmonious and out of tune or line.

Your astral body is upon the sixth ray so that it will be obvious to you that through that vehicle your personality will find the least resistance; there also lies the need for watchful supervision. This I think you know and there is no need for me to elaborate this theme.

You have a first ray physical body. This is the only vehicle or energy of expression in your equipment which is on one of the major rays. Curiously enough, this fact indicates to those of us who watch on the inner side that your monadic ray is the first and that later, in your next life, it will be necessary for you to shift the center of your egoic or soul attention on to the second ray. The shift of emphasis has in it the main objective of this present incarnation and hence your possession of a sixth ray personality and astral body. This devoted, idealistic one-pointedness is an aid to you in your soul's enterprise. I know that this will give you much food for thought and instigate you to renewed purpose in your life endeavor.

  1. The soul ray - seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order.
  2. The ray of the personality - sixth Ray of Devotion.
  3. The ray of the mental body - fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict.
  4. The ray of the astral body - sixth Ray of Devotion.
  5. The ray of the physical body - first Ray of Will or Power.

The qualities which you should cultivate are persistence, expansion, and strength, applied with love.
