understanding person possessing a real broadmindedness and carefully
cultivated generosity of spirit. This is not an easy task because
your selfishness, self-love and self-indulgences have been excessive.
Now you have discovered that the 'Path' is the narrow line which
runs between the pairs of opposites turning neither right nor left.

spiritual Path. One must first find the Path, become the Path and
then tread the Path. You must begin your apprenticeship in mastering
the supreme art and science of Libran equilibrium.

in this balancing of opposites lies the secret of liberation.

the Mysteries requires you to learn how to wisely, justly and sanely

you will have to demonstrate the ability to unselfishly sacrifice

good of the Whole.
considerations must not interfere with the precipitation of your
abstract spiritual ideals. All of your actions are to be dedicated
to the benefit of other sentient beings, not to your separated personal
self. Circumstances, social situations and people are not to be

take your time and attention as well as being the recipient of your

self-interest of that group of men and women whose lives are preoccupied
with possessions, wealth and social status?

growth. Unfortunately it takes years to learn the lesson of general

p.572), and the social set is the cruelest in the world. Defiance

developed real skill, tact, charm and a genuine suavity, and you
are not superficial or artificial.
advanced aspirant intuitively begins to comprehend the inherent
nature of other human beings, and ultimately becomes a great expert
in all matters of love and all issues which most concern the human

in the virtuous ways of exercising the intense power of the divine
love of the human soul.
plans must be formulated in order to bring about the fulfilment
of spiritual purpose. Even though there may be initial failure,
you must always attempt to begin again and succeed by virtue of
the lessons learned. Through your acceptance of these opportunities
for discipleship training you will develop a natural sense of justice,
the power to correctly weigh evidence, and the shrewd exercise of
good judgment which will win you the respect of your co-workers.
Indeed, the advanced aspirant is capable of reconciling apparently
incompatible situations and circumstances with great facility.
your life must be filled with a spirit of dynamic creative service.
This will lead to the establishment of lines of definite karmic

result in you becoming the nucleus of a spiritual group which will
begin to form around you, preparatory to forming your own Ashram

progressively identical with the energetic frequency of your soul

Such is not the duty or dharma of the average man. It is sufficient
for him to be successful, prosperous and make good upon the physical
plane, leaving to a later life cycle the development of a more dynamic
and inclusive inner life.
spiritual laws and principles are the foundation of all your creative
service activities, so study them well. A new era of spiritual preparation
is being inaugurated which will provide opportunities to demonstrate
constructive and rehabilitating activity. The future holds much
of useful service for you if you continue to be a humble student
and apprentice of the Mysteries. It takes time, humility and clear
recognition within yourself of your place and position in the chain

outward and one inward, but held in integrated expression.
efforts to overcome your extreme sensitivity to criticism and to
lack of love and understanding, so that co-workers find you approachable.
The pain you feel when you perceive yourself misunderstood by your
group brothers is caused by your complete identification on the
mental planes with your spiritual objective—an identification
that is true, sincere and lasting; however you are apt to think
sometimes that you have already achieved the level of personality-soul
integration towards which you are working. This is impossible if
the law of achieved progress is of any importance.
resentment of sharp criticism is based in a fierce resentment of
failure. Your response to group feedback is to add self-criticism,
and this creates further glamour. For the good of your group brothers
do not waste any time in futile reaction or self-defense. Do not
forget that contact with disciples older and more experienced than
yourself will ever produce stimulation, which will be applied to
any innate glamour. Can you think of a single instance that did
not produce turmoil in your consciousness?

at the cost of any personal sacrifice. Your temptation is at times
to evade the issue and find in your daily tasks and karmic responsibilities,
and also through a type of satisfaction with your emotional reactions,
a way of escape from direct, consecrated and practical action in
service of humanity. Do not employ a forced preoccupation with your
own personality-centered concerns to subconsciously evade anything
that adds to the workload of your ashramic service.
do you do of a practical nature to add your burden-bearing capacity
to that of the group of world workers everywhere, or to alleviate
in some practical way what you can of world distress and the physical
plane needs of unhappy humanity? What do you do of a practical nature
to devote your quota of effort to the present world need?
Master now seeks to have you within the Ashram. A move forward to
the fifth step can be made in this life if you obey the instructions
of your soul. Go forward in confidence with the elimination of all
non-essentials. The ashramic group is with you, awaits you, never
deserts you. Your Master holds you fast in his thought.

as a recognized member of a group of disciples, is it not?
conscious precipitation of Love and Light into your lower four-fold
nature has produced great transforming results brought about through
keen interest in and love of others, and also by stern mental control
and unfoldment. You have responded well. You have helped many and
have grown in wisdom. You have shouldered responsibility for some
phase of the work initiated in your Ashram. Your link is indissoluble;
you stand now within an Ashram with clearer knowledge and a more
assured faith; a life of fuller service opens up before you—service
that you can render from the place where you are now as you pass
so courageously along the “Lighted Way”. (DINAI 160)
is of great value to the soul when the personality consciously recognizes
the activity of soul karma and commits to the complete working out
of spiritual effects. Once spiritual identification takes place,
the soul and personality relation can then never be broken. Your
periods of decision and adjustment have been most difficult, but
as you have discovered, when you interiorly hold the right attitude
and stand steady, the problem or relationship is resolved.

efficient and "esoterically attractive" in the world of
men. (DINAII 560). In this lifetime the die is cast and the period
of inactivity and of indecision ends as your soul has begun to determine
action; your karma now comes under the processes of your conscious
transmutation. Your motives become purified and objectives shift
from those of your personality ambition to the spiritual goals of
humanity. Personality decision and indecision end when you see your
soul purpose more clearly.
might here ask: in what way can I know? How can I arrive at right
decision? First of all by eliminating selfishness and arriving at
that unconcern as to the happiness or the experiences of the personality;
secondly, by refusing to move hurriedly. You need to learn that
when you have arrived at right—and therefore for you irrevocable—decision,
energy starts working along the indicated lines and you can now
move slowly in the wake of that energy. Your personality life, decisions
and plans are your own concern. Yet widen the "spread"
of your consciousness (DINAII 737) so that you can bring to a planned
life of discipleship and world service a lucid vision, wise foresight,
reasoned judgment and seasoned experience.
future that lies ahead must be approached now in a different manner
than the past. Paradoxically you stand on your own, yet at the same
time you stand with your brothers in the Ashram and are therefore
not alone. What is the constructive contribution you can now make
to the work of your chosen co-workers? How can you organize your
life so that there is a definite result from any activity instituted?
How can the intense activity of your mind be slowed down and channeled
so that something creative and worthwhile may emerge?

identification with it. Such identification is not helpful as it
feeds the life of the solar plexus.

of life is sometimes thrown into confusion; its thoughtform-making
proclivities become too accelerated and the illumination of your
soul is unable to penetrate satisfactorily into your physical brain

As a disciple you demand hard work from co-workers but push yourself

In appearance you may seem mild, soft-spoken and reserved, yet somehow
you are always forced to choose and make commitments, thereby conditioning
your outer life and all manner of relations. Right choice through
right discrimination leads to right action; all made possible through
the practice of equanimity.
you are still sometimes wrong, misguided in your thinking process
and occasionally make the wrong decisions, thus tilting the balance
of the Libran scales the lower way. Your tests concern the development
of a true spiritually-minded consciousness, judicious attitude and
acute intellectual perception. These soul virtues you will attain
at the successful conclusion of the fifth step. You must deliberately
apply purification measures and eradicate your uncharitable traits.
application of the force of Saturn aids you in the daily preservation
of the correct attitude of strict inner spiritual orientation. You

are at times. Capriciously you still feel free to inflict your state
of mind and reactions on friends, partners, lovers and co-workers.
The imposition of your personal will on other people and all manner

from this any degree of self-justification in the process. Such
projection of emotion will not vindicate you of anything, but will
breed further disharmony and discord in the group field.

and thereby you will attain a very clear vision of both method and
goal. Your co-workers will feel the benefit of this as it will certainly
make their lives much easier. Yet there are disadvantages to the
quickness of your mental faculties.
aspects of your unwholesome imagination and over-active mind must
be eliminated, enabling you to express a balanced point of view.
This is very difficult for you indeed. Retreating into your cave
or shell or hiding behind your persona or mask will only make your
problems much worse. You will be judged just as harshly by your
soul for what you do not say as for what you speak. It is your silence
that so often condemns you, as it clearly indicates your selfish
for simplicity, understanding and dignity in the handling of all
affairs and in all relationships. Your understanding of others must
be based upon love and not upon any mental process or intellectual
view. This will be hard for you for it involves being guided by
your heart, unobstructed by your versatile and fluid mind. If you
will develop these qualities: simplicity from the angle of mind,
understanding from the emotional perspective, and dignity of physical
bearing—you will be well equipped for fuller service.
is difficult for you to feel truly loved and accepted. This accounts
for much of your loneliness, sense of rejection, isolation and feelings
of being unwanted, unappreciated and unloved. You are exceedingly
sensitive still to criticism and to lack of love and understanding.
Your resentment of criticism is not generally based on pride in
fancied spiritual achievement or superior initiatory status, but
in a fierce resentment over perceived weakness or failure. Need
for more loving understanding at times isolates you from your fellow
men, particularly from your co-workers.
you move forward on the Path remember that the greater can always
include the lesser. This is a lesson all disciples in training have
to grasp. The reverse, my brother, is not true, and hence your feeling
of loneliness. Ponder on all this and accept it; stand free and
move forward on your chosen way, refusing to be limited by those
who cannot walk at your pace. So be prepared for loneliness and
for counting the cost of treading the Path.

drama; nevertheless this is extremely difficult for you to do. With
clear unimpeded vision you go forth to battle both the forces of
your own nature and the forces of outer illusion arraigned against
you. A tried and true warrior, you are battle-scarred yet know that
triumph and victory lie ahead.
victory is not yet, and this you know all too well. The vital power
of knowing that you ultimately will achieve a point of equilibrium
enables you to make a choice between various methods of service.
Evidencing also a steadily growing recognition of the potencies

resigned to the struggle to love and serve with dispassion, handing
the reins of the personality to the soul.
to deliberately apply the necessary measures with enthusiastic wisdom
and straightforward conduct. Your salient task is to learn to balance

be balanced with your personal life. Right equilibrium must be maintained
between these pairs of opposites within yourself. Carefully weigh
in the balance material personal desire and intelligent spiritual

first lesson on the Path of Discipleship was the lesson of vision.
You have already successfully laid out the path toward your spiritual
goals. You have worked out an essential spiritual incentive that
has been strong enough to hold your course steady to the purpose
of initiation and true to this demanding objective through all the
tests and trials of discipleship. You formulated the vision yourself

of that vision and the beauty of the image you formed out of your
creative spiritual imagination, upon the Path of Initiation you
have made yourself what you are.

of a right sense of proportion. This when correctly applied has
enabled you to walk humbly on the Way that lies between the two
great lines of force.
true initiates are humbled by the magnitude of the task they are
undertaking, and in the light of the vision appreciate the limitations
of the individual contribution. They recognize the necessity for
constant self-development and the cultivation of steady inner spiritual

may be fostered in you.
