Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - J.W.K-P.
To  J. W. K-P.

August 1940

MY BROTHER:

I have not much to say to you at this time and the reason thereof you know. Let not the pressure of work at this time and world strain overcome you in any way.

The task of world reconstruction still lies ahead but the disciples in the world and the dedicated groups can begin to take the needed steps of preparation. The reconstruction must begin in the place where the disciple at this time finds himself, and this will involve on a small and relatively unimportant scale the same processes, the same eliminations and changes, the same discriminative idealism and the same conformity to the new emerging pattern as will be required in world reconstruction. I would ask you to ponder on this, for [589] all disciples throughout the world can begin to prepare themselves for increased future activity.

There are three outstanding aspects of the new age pattern which must be borne in mind:

1. The aspect of healing. I would express it thus, for humanity will take much patient care before the shock and the pain of the present has been transmuted into gained experience and understanding. Compassionate lovers of humanity can do this healing work.

2. The aspect of clarification. The bewilderment of humanity as a whole requires recognition by the forces of reconstruction. Time and effort must be given to clear explanation and to the pointing out of the law of cause and effect. Trained interpreters are required.

3. The aspect of reorganization. Rebuilding is needed and this will require a dedicated, spiritual insight. The New Age will not be ushered in and find true expression of its latent energies through the medium of old and patched up forms, or through the preservation of ancient techniques and attitudes. It will come into being through entirely new forms and by means of the intelligent discarding of old modes of religion, government and economic and social idealism. The need for sensitive intermediaries who can sense the new emerging realities and can take the needed constructive steps is great. They must create the forms which these subjective ideas must utilize. I make these few suggestions to aid you and other workers in the task of reorganization by indicating the type of worker needed today in the world, and much needed in the task you are seeking to do for humanity and incidentally for us.

Sound business methods must distinguish the physical plane aspects of the revitalized organizations for which you are responsible; a potent note of love and understanding must express the desire and sensitive subjective aspects of the active working group. Intelligent adaptability should be the mental note. These things I think you already know and I reiterate them not merely to emphasize them in your consciousness but also to weld the efforts of your group brothers [590] in the same united determination which will render them active cooperators in the plans laid down by us for the helping of the world.

It is always difficult for the disciple who is working in the world of human affairs to strike the happy medium between sound physical plane techniques in expression and the measure of the vision which he sees; it is never easy to adapt and to relate the old to the new, thus producing that which the present requires. The task of the disciple, as you can see from the three words - old, new and present - is therefore primarily concerned with Time. This right comprehension of the time element requires the eye of vision, plus right interpretation of that which it sees. For this purpose I would give you a meditation based on sight and its suitability for your particular need will, I think, be immediately apparent. I make it very brief, for long meditations (reduced to form) are not adapted to your nature.

  1. Sound the OM three times, withdrawing your consciousness as you do so to the ajna center between the eyebrows. Hold it steadily there.
  2. Then look forth imaginatively in three directions:
    1. Upward to the world of the soul, to the kingdom of God and to the Hierarchy. Seek as you do this to link up definitely with your own Master, of whom I am, with his permission, at this time the chosen representative.
    2. Inward to the world of men, seeking to contact the subjective world of human thought and aspiration - the world of ideals and of human aspirational vision.
    3. Outward over the world of events, over the exoteric objective world of tangible happenings.
  3. Still holding the consciousness in the ajna center express to yourself in definitely formulated thought, the duty of the day in the light of this triple interrelation.
  4. Then focusing the light that is in you, send out the dedicated energy of your personality into the sphere of your chosen work through the medium of your left [591] eye and the potent energy of your soul through the right eye. This will prove potent in effect.
  5. Then - as a soul - draw from the realm of soul life a fresh supply of soul energy and concentrate it in the head and heart, holding it steadily there for use during the day's work.
  6. Sound the OM three times inaudibly.

This should only take a few minutes but it must be done dynamically and with full control over thought and activity.

My blessing rests upon you.
