the hints themselves frequently deal with the nature of a hint,
because a hint is in reality and when properly considered, the seed or

germ of an intended revelation.

In seeking to elucidate these hints for you I am not doing work which you should do. I am, in fact, only marshalling, for your benefit the ideas, information and concepts which are already to be found in your subconscious mind--placed there through meditation, study and experimental critical living. Having done that, I leave it to you to proceed alone and unaided towards the moment of revelation. [pp. 388-389]

The hints given at this stage are related to the theme of revelation, or they concern themselves with the techniques which make revelation possible. ƒ The hint, for instance, with which you can work until you receive the next sequence of teaching is contained in this paragraph and the one above; you can discover it if you take each phrase, release your intuition and seek for meaning and significance related to the possibility of revelation. [pp. 319]

The Hints as Seed Thoughts within Meditation III are suggested August 1942. pp. 130-131 Present at Stage III of Meditation III, use is encouraged especially if student is between the 1st and 2nd degree; if so, also review suggestions for Med I-II
Meditation III. Stage iii. Reflect upon the antahkarana and its relation to soul personality and the Monad.

In your personal instructions this year, I am not going to be explicit [but] revert to an aspect of the old system of training and give you hints and brief injunctions, leaving you to do your own interpreting, to make right application and to profit or fail to profit as seems best to you. These injunctions will take the form of six statements, sentences or aphorisms which will contain for you a particular message at which you can arrive if you will take each of them into your daily meditation. You have a year in which to do this make the six statements into six seed thoughts for meditation, or reflective brooding - one for each month for six months. Then repeat with the thought in view that during the second six months you will do what you can to make the effects of the previous period of reflection, a dynamic factor in your life. Thus you will externalize the results of the preceding cycle of spiritual and mental brooding. In this way, your subjective realization can become an objective happening. Do this exercise each morning at the close of the alignment work, endeavoring to hold the mind steady in the light and to achieve as far as you can the brooding quality of the soul when in deep meditation.

Purposes of the Hints ƒ ... [I will] unfold to you and reveal the techniques of work, preparatory to initiation. I referred to this earlier (in Vol. I, Page 99): "As time goes on, I shall bridge between the old techniques and the newer modes of training by using a part of the ancient technique, now becoming somewhat obsolete, and give you hints as to the nature and methods of educating accepted disciples in the processes of initiation." ƒ You will note, therefore, that it is my intention to give you such hints. This I shall do from the angle of initiation and in preparation for the second or the third initiation. Bear this in mind. Hitherto I have not taught you from that particular angle, but I have instructed you as accepted disciples in training for preparation--a much earlier stage. [p. 18]

have in mind three things:
ƒ ƒ ƒ

1. A hint today will concern the group--its interrelation, its fusion, its initiation and its service. 2. A hint is intended to teach you something new in your experience 3. A hint, like all else in the occult teaching, is capable of seven interpretations which can roughly be divided into three


To assist you in the continuance of the theme upon which you have been engaged in the past months, I am going to ask you to ponder over and answer the following questions. You have a life tendency to over-emphasise detail and points of procedure with meticulous care and so sometimes lose sight of the synthesis of the whole. The questions are: 1. To recognise the Presence, I must stand free and unattached. To what and to whom am I now attached in such a way that I am prevented from clear vision and closer approach? 2. To recognise the Presence, I must function as the solar Angel. Can I, at this time, discriminate between myself and that solar Angel? 3. To recognise the Presence means that I am preparing to pass, as a solar Angel, through the gate, on to the Path of Initiation. Can I, in view of this, state clearly to [Page 392] myself what are my major assets and my major weaknesses? 4. Can I define clearly within myself what I understand by 





a. Myself, the disciple. b. Myself, the Angel. c. The Presence.


The first three questions can be answered or not in writing exactly as you choose; you may find them too personal and confidential to commit to writing. If you find this to be so, then on the first day on which the Sun moves northward, answer these questions in my presence and to me, your brother and your teacher. Deal with them clearly and with truth, voicing your answers aloud so that you can hear your voice, and thus pay adequate attention to your position and attitude. The fourth and fifth questions please answer in writing and elucidate as clearly as may be.

5. Elucidate the following phrases, taken from a very ancient writing. I suggest that you ponder them with care. ƒ "Before the throne of God, the angel, with all the other angels, stood and cried: `Lord of my life, grant me the strength to tread the path of revelation; to cross the sea of dark illusion, and face the lighted way of earth.' God said: `Go forth and far away.' ƒ "Before the gate which opens on the lighted way to peace, the angel stood alone and said: `Lord of my life, the way of revelation is the way of manifested life: the path of dark illusion leads to the light which scatters every shadow. I seek to tread the lighted way which leads back to thy Presence. As yet that way is dark. What shall I do?' God said, `Draw near and enter into thine own light, and in that light, see Light.' ƒ "Before the gateway of each newborn day, which holds within its sealed hours ordered responsibility, each morn I stand. I cry aloud: `Lord of my life, how can I do the duty of this day yet seek detachment? Meet every need yet free myself from ties and bonds?' God said: `The sun draws near and vivifies the earth. Naught can it take from out the earth. Live likewise. Give and ask naught!' [pp. 392-393]
