Six Seed Thoughts about the Chela and the Ashram
(Volume 2 - Pages 560-561)
- The Ashram pulsates with life. Its radiation penetrates the outer gloom and dark; waiting
aspirants, one by one, and all alone, appear within the beam of light.
- Along that beam the chela travels towards the central point of light, the Master in His Ashram. The Master waits. He moves not forth but quietly radiates.
- The chela enters through the door into the Ashram and stands before the Master of his life. He knows himself to be a Soul. He knows that now his mind and all the lower natural forces must radiate the light he has attained.
- As one by one the chelas find their way into the Ashram and to the central Light, the light therein intensifies. The radiation of the Ashram waxes to a great intensity. The tiny beam of light focused within the chela’s heart, directed by his eye, penetrates in turn, the outer gloom and is seen by those who wait.
- Within the Ashram I have taken my place. My little light is merged and blended with the greater light, for thus I best can serve. I face the Master and know His light and mine to be the same. I turn and send my light into the dark, to guide some wanderer home.
- Grant me the light that I may shine. Let me, throughout the world of time and space, radiate light, create a light, transmit the light, and treading thus the Lighted Way (which is my Lighted Self) enter the light and so return the light to those who need, to Those likewise from whence it came.
