Affirmation of the Disciple

I am a point of light within a greater Light.
I am a strand of loving energy within the stream of Love divine.
I am a point of sacrificial Fire, focussed within the fiery Will of God.

And thus I stand

I am a way by which men may achieve.
I am a source of strength, enabling them to stand.
I am a beam of light, shining upon their way.

And thus I stand.

And standing thus, revolve
And tread this way the ways of men,
And know the ways of God.

And thus I stand.

This affirmation "and thus I stand" is a declaration of a goal. Few there be who now stand as here stated. The Masters in the Hierarchy so stand and we all, if we so choose, can some day thus stand. Meanwhile, we can all legitimately use it as the affirmation of our goal. Its right use opens the door through which we can pass, surprisingly soon, to partial achievement. Its right use requires due humility. Its inspiring call gives wings to our feet and brings in the magic of Mercury. Holding it in our consciousness brings joy in our goal of world discipleship and speeds us on our way.

The first part is the declaration of our soul. The second part is a statement of the program of every world server. The third part is eloquent of being in this world but not of it, evidencing the combined knowledge of the soul and the personality. It reminds us that the personality is not to be crushed but to be used. At the fourth initiation the personality completely surrenders to the soul with no reservations whatsoever.

Those who dare to face the consequences can rightly use this first ray mantram. And thus I stand.
