In June of 2005 I kept a daily journal on a speaking trip to Britain and decided to keep the daily entries going on my return. If you would like to keep up with L/L Research and our activities, this is the place to do that. Nowadays it is Jim who writes the daily entry, and Gary writes the blogworthy report (the bulleted list) detailing his and Austin's work at the helm of the L/L ship.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. We continue to be cautious about her physical activity and we still are working to get her plumbing working right. The wound continues to look good and we had a busy day once again.
Gary and Ken joined us after lunch for another two interview sessions for another four hours. We have put in 10 hours of interview time thus far and may be about half done. Gary is most thorough in his questioning and we are hopeful that this work will provide an interesting aside for future readers of the Law of One information.
I had just enough time between interview sessions and a nap to pot the three new water lilies that came in the mail and to plant a replacement hydrangea for one that died earlier this week.
Gary and Austin also put in some productive time in the L/L office:
Put in two sessions on the interview project today. We're up to question 150! We covered the Appurtenances, Psychic Greeting (including What is Psychic Greeting, Dealing with, Why You Guys, The Brunt of the Greeting, and Specific Instances), The End of the Ra Contact, and Olio (aka: Miscellaneous) for the Ra Contact, thus completing everything up to 1984. Tomorrow we'll begin in November 84 and move forward.
Worked with Richard W on the project to create meditation pyramid caps. He's working on obtaining a grant on his end and we discussed setting up an arrangement to help him get his caps to interested seekers.
Rescheduled the weekly In the Now program due to the ongoing interview project. We'll resume next Tuesday July 29 at 1:00 PM.
Responded to seeker email.
Continued to digitize Q'uo and corresponded with Edgard.
Continued work on the new online store, and corresponded with Steve about some roadblocks encountered.
Created a "Master Plan" for the switch to CreateSpace from Lulu and BlitzPrint.
Had a moderator pow-wow on a member question.
Began work to create a new sub-forum within the Strictly Law of One forum.
Our evening was relaxed as we watched a couple NCIS episodes and did our protocol as we listened to the Classic Rock & Roll station. We completed our viewing day with the Colbert Report. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona came by this morning and changed the dressing on Carla's wound. She commented that the wound looks good and she put more silver nitrate on it to keep the healing stimulated. We also had an appointment with Carla's family doctor shortly after lunch and we were able to keep that appointment even though Carla's pain and nausea levels were very high today. Dr. Hamad had referred Carla to a couple of specialists and she just wanted to check to see if we had any more needs that she could address with more referrals or more medications.
Gary wanted to do another interview session today, so when Carla and I got home Carla determined that she would take a nap for a while and see if she could get her energy back and do another session. While she was sleeping I went outside and mowed the grass. I always enjoy cutting the grass because it's the quickest thing that you can do to a yard to make it look great.
We began our interview session at 6 pm and went for two hours. We have put in over six hours of time on these interviews and now have covered about a third of the questions that Gary has concerning the nature of the Ra contact and our relationships with each other. It all seems to be going quite well and everyone is enjoying the process.
Gary and Austin also did a lot of good work in the L/L office today:
Finished tweaking my Introduction for the interview project and finally finished the section on Psychic Greeting! I've been working and re-working that one for over a week now.
Jim reported that Carla was having a rough day today and didn't think she'd have the energy for a session, but she rallied (of her own volition and interest) and a great session we had. Probably about two hours, we dug into the mechanics of the Ra Contact and the dynamics betwixt the wanderer, sixth-density-social-memory-complex-channeling trio.
Put together the monthly Kindle reports
Processed and shipped a book order and shared via social media.
Responded to seeker email.
Continued digitizing Q'uo.
Worked with Manuel, an excellent Spanish translator in Spain to create a new system whereby he oversees all Spanish translation of L/L material, ensuring that it is up to par, and is of a consistent standard before sending it to Edgard for formatting for the archive website.
The question of which standard to use for Spanish translations is, well, in question. There is the "peninsular Spanish" used in Spain, and Argentinian and Mexican versions. Spain itself, though, comprises just 8.95% of all Spanish-speaking peoples around the world. One word highlighting the difference is "ustedes, which functions as formal and informal second person plural in over 90% of the Spanish-speaking world, including all of Latin America, the Canary Islands, and some regions of Andalusia. .... Most of Spain maintains the formal/familiar distinction with ustedes and vosotros respectively."
Spent most of the day continuing work on the new online store, including creating new images for the donation pages and learning how to tweak the homepage, sort the categories, and other fun online store stuff.
Received the order from our shipping materials supplier. Yep, the one placed yesterday, less than 24 hours before it arrived from out of state. Talk about service.
Wrote to Blog Talk Radio to see why we keep getting calls for psychic readings. Received a very friendly, helpful, and timely reply. Apparently it's as simple as the fact that most people equate "spirituality" with "psychic readings." While psychic readings can be informative and helpful, it is unfortunate that the actual depth of spirituality is not plumbed.
After the interview Carla and I did the evening protocol and listened to the Classical Music Station. We had a late dinner and watched a little NCIS before concluding our viewing evening with the Colbert Report. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. We thought that we were through with the Miralax today, but it turns out that we aren't. There are still blockages to the system. The wound looked good this morning and there seemed to be some new heights to the small mountain range that is rising from the bed of her wound.
Today Gary and our good friend, Ken. W., began the interview project where Carla and I are being interviewed for the record to give our accounts of what the Ra contact was like for us and the general journey that each of us took to get to that point with Don. We got a lot more done than any of us anticipated but must be careful not to repeat the over zealousness with which Don, Carla, and I began the Ra contact.
The report from the L/L office today reflects all the good work done:
Picked up mail from the PO Box
Had a short meditation walk through Jim's gardens
Nearly the entire day working on the interview project. Readied the Word doc for Power Point (lots of little snags there and adjustments needed) so that Carla and Jim could see the question that is being asked, and to make it easier to read for me. There are around 400 questions. It is amazing. Any given section of their organization's and their personal biography doesn't have too many questions, but when you take in the scope of how long this effort has been running, and the many things they've undertaken in the course of their work, it turns into a lot of questions if you want to create any sort of streamlined, coherent biography.
Ken, our good friend, is serving as the videographer of this project. He brought his equipment with him from out of state and will be staying for a time. Ken and I joined Carla and Jim for the first session today, initially designed to be just a logistics session. We determined how to position all the equipment, what our procedure would be, etc. And then realized that we still had some time, so we commenced filming! We had a two-hour session. It was a pretty exciting start for all of us.
And given that Ken's time is limited, we opted for a second session at 7:30 PM. We made it through Don's investigation into the UFO and paranormal phenomena prior to meeting Carla, then his meeting and work with Carla, then their crossing paths with Jim and the subsequent commencement of the Ra Contact, followed by questioning pertinent to the Ra contact, include its beginning, and reactions therein.
My normal L/L workload will be backlogged for the next couple/few weeks, but fortunately Austin is in the office kicking butt and taking names. Including assisting in getting the interview project moving.
Processed PO Box mail, including a donation and request from a prisoner for a book - shipped said book.
Caught up with a multitude seeker emails.
Received and added some great In the Now questions from seekers.
Gathered questions for the weekly In the Now.
Caught up with Bring4th after a long weekend of bachelor party shenanigans.
Continued to digitize Q'uo and ordered for more shipping supplies.
Continued work and research on the new web store, figuring out how to remove unneeded features and customize product pages based on product type.
After the second interview session Carla and I did our evening protocol and listened to the Classic Rock & Roll station for our inspiration. We were so inspired that we danced the happy dance until we collapsed in gasps and giggles. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. We took it easy again today and concentrated on getting her system unplugged and working again. She was on the air with Wynn F. from 1-3 again today and they talked about the archetypical mind, astrology, and the microcosm versus the macrocosm. The information on the archetypical mind was so well received that Wynn asked Carla if she would be on his Monday night show and continue to expound on this topic. Carla was thrilled at another chance to be of service.
While Carla was on the radio I went shopping for more surgical gloves at COSCO, which is a huge store with multitudes of bargain shoppers looking for great deals on wholesale quantities of everything. Then I decided to dead head the knockout roses even though one of their selling points is that they don't need dead heading. I am looking to see if they can be helped in their continuous bloom by such.
Today was the 45th anniversary of the United States landing on the moon for the first time. Neil Armstrong was the first person to step upon the moon with his unforgettable words: "One step for a man, one leap for mankind". His partner, Buzz Aldrin, was the second man on the moon and is now asking people to honor that occasion of their moon landing by remembering where people were on that historic day. Carla was taking care of her mom and dad's house while they were gone, and she watched the moon landing on the television there. I was in college and had a date that I took to our local outdoor drive-in movie theatre (remember those?) and we were watching "2001, A Space Odyssey" while the full moon was rising over the movie theatre screen.
We had our silent meditation at 8 pm this evening and we were the only attendees as Gary and Austin were recovering from Gary's bachelor party which was to attend the Forecastle Music Festival here in Louisville with his groomsmen and the partying went on into the wee hours of the morning. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She took it easy again today and has found some relief from the intense pain of the last couple of weeks. Her appetite remains pretty good when you consider she also has an upset stomach. We applied a little Miralax to get her system going again as there had been an unusual blockage for the last couple of days that was causing some problems. She was able to do the Saturday Crossword Puzzle from the newspaper and that is an achievement as the puzzles become harder throughout the week until the hardest on Saturday.
Carla was also on the radio with Wynn F. from 1-3 this afternoon and she talked about how each of us needs to be giving praise and thanksgiving for our blessings, no matter what our situation. It is that praise and thanksgiving that is the foundation for our continued learning, growth, and service. Wynn had wanted to have a short program today but couldn’t pull himself away from the words of inspiration coming from Carla.
While she was on the radio I trimmed our huge forsythia hedge in the back yard. It has been growing wildly this summer and I wanted to give it a good general trim without making it look like it was done with a T-square. I like the natural look, and it turned out well. The fish continue doing well in their new homes and they all have learned to eat from the feeding ring in each pond. The feeding ring is a plastic circle about a foot in diameter into which I throw their food which floats on the water inside the ring. The fish come up one or two at a time a snatch some food and swim away to eat it before coming back for more.
This evening we watched a lot of NCIS and Modern Family, even through our protocol. We tried to watch Ginger Baker, the former drummer for Cream, who was on Front and Center with his band, but he has gotten into serrrious jazz since his days with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce, and we went back to Modern Family. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. In Second Samuel David has now been anointed King of Israel and that means that he has to take more wives and concubines. I think his wife total now is in double digits. Giving wives was a way of sealing treaties with other countries and a way for a man to strengthen his house. More wives produce more offspring and more offspring strengthens the man’s house. Women were chattel and could be given away and traded or killed if they misbehaved. We haven’t come that much further in much of the world in recognizing the human rights of women, thanks to the ever-present fundamentalist men.
We took it pretty easy with physical exertion today as we needed to get Carla to her Orencia infusion at her rheumatologist’s office. This is a fairly painless procedure where her port is accessed so an Orencia drip can be infused into her blood system and, as her rheumatologist hopes, eventually replace prednisone as her primary treatment for arthritis. Prednisone has some bad side effects for some people and although Carla has been taking it for 40 years with no problems, Dr. June has been looking for an alternative for years and thinks she may have found it now.
As always, we were glad to get back home and relax into our comfy routines. We enjoyed some television with our usual suspects on the screen. We enjoyed Classical Music for our protocol and then we threw a flash dance raving party that rock and rolled into the night until we fell exhausted into sleep and dreams. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. This was the third day of her birthday, being the day after, and we completed our celebration of her 71st year in fine fashion. We had cake and ice cream for lunch. It’s a heavy cake and we knew that we would have to devote an entire meal to it if we ever hoped to eat it. Unfortunately, it also turned out to be somewhat on the stale side and that’s hard to figure when we had it baked especially for Carla’s birthday. We took it easy and hung out together again today watching NCIS episodes and taking an extra nap together.
The black-eyed Susans are in full bloom now and I did take time to put netting and posts up at their three boundary locations. They tend to droop some with the bloom and they are located along walkways that need to be clear.
Gary and Austin were busy as usual in their last day in the L/L office for this week:
A good chunk of the day spend doing the keeping of the processing of the books.
Processed and shipped book orders for the day.
Responded to Facebook seekers and shared via social media and continued digitizing Q'uo.
Did a test run with the monitor hooked up to the laptop to find the font size that Carla could best read at a distance for the interview project. We are going to have the questions being asked also visible on the monitor.
Moderator correspondence per usual.
Austin spent most of his day doing great work continuing to build the new online store, researching and tweaking download settings, creating more product pages, tweaking product images, and generally enjoying the smoothness of the OpenCart system.
Did some tweaking of the interview questions and then got to work on writing the section on psychic greeting. Has proven the toughest
Austin ships out books these days so I don't get to see my post office buddy often so stopped up and had a chat with H.
Our evening was full of NCIS and Modern Family. We listened to the Classic Rock & Roll station for our protocol and enjoyed hearing a lot of golden oldies. We finished our viewing day with the Colbert Report. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.a

Carla and I did the Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. The pain level seems to be backing off ever so slowly as we practice not moving unless absolutely necessary. Sitting in the living room chair seems to be the proximate cause of the pain, so we will remove that exercise completely.
Today was Carla's 71st birthday, a day for great celebration for her every year since she had rheumatic fever when she was 2 yrs. old and her family doctor told her parents that she would not live past the age of 5 because all of her internal organs had been damaged. She has certainly had more than her share of medical problems over the years, but she is still here, laughing and serving with a happy heart.
Gary and Austin joined us for a lunch/birthday party and a good time was had by all. I stayed inside today to hang out with Carla and enjoy an extra nap or two, some NCIS episodes on television and more take out meals for dinner.
Gary and Austin continued to produce work at an amazing pace in the L/L office:
In the biggest of best news today, we celebrated CLRM's 71st birthday with delicious food and the great company! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CARLA!
Processed donations, fulfilled a DVD request, and a request from a prisoner for Book 1 who heard from his friend that it was "pretty bad ass."
Responded to seeker emails.
Corresponded with mods about moderator stuff including helping one user with her account.
Set the parameters for the new sub-forum and wrote to Tanner with the news and specifics. If the seas remain calm and the weather conducive, we could start constructing it in a couple of weeks. (Been an intensive season for the mods.)
Worked on setting up a legitimate remote desktop application for my two computers as the Homegroup just doesn't seem to cut it. Found what seemed to be a great free program that then failed to even start.
Continued setting up and configuring the new online store.
Continued digitizing Q'uo.
Resent an email to the Italian team regarding their translation and publication of A Wanderer's Handbook.
Almost finalized the multitude of questions for the interview project! Just have to re-work the section on psychic greeting.
Investigated getting all those questions over into Power Point. The hope is to put each question on a single power point slide on a monitor so that Carla can see the question as it's being asked, and know at all times which question we're working on.
Heard from, and thanked, Daniel A. He has translated the first 30 sessions of the Law of One books into Portuguese! What a great year for Ra, their message becoming available in both German and Portuguese in the same year. The Egyptians didn't come close to this.
Our evening was full of NCIS and Modern Family. We listened to the Classical Music Station for our evening protocol and decided that one birthday party was not enough so we partied into the night like a couple of kids on their first date. We finished our television viewing day with the Colbert Report. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Susie came by this morning since Mona is on vacation and she changed Carla's dressing. We figured out that Carla's attempt to sit in her usual living room chair on a regular basis was the only different thing she has done in the last couple of weeks of the very intense pain emanating from her wound. Susie said that something like that can pinch a nerve and cause a lot of pain for a while. So we will rest from that activity and see if the pain recedes.
Austin and Gary joined Carla and me for our weekly Blog Talk Radio Show where we talked about unconditional love and the negative and positive interpretations of catalyst in our daily lives. After the show was over Bethany came and did Carla's nails in the classic black/white yin/yang colors and pattern for each nail. They are particularly eye-catching.
Our 38 goldfish came via FedEx Overnight Express this afternoon. They were shipped in a plastic bag full of water which was put in a box and two frozen ice packets were added. I put the whole bag of fish in the front fish pond to get the water temperature of the bag and the pond the same so the fish wouldn't suffer any shock from a difference in temperature between their baggie and the pond. After about 45 minutes I released them into the pond and saved a few to put in the side fish pond. All fish seem to be doing well and loving their new homes.
Gary and Austin were their usual busy selves in the L/L office:
Considered seekers' questions and then joined Carla and Jim for our weekly "In the Now" program. This episode we discuss: - Consciousness of unconditional love that we all share. - The Law of Attraction and interpretation of catalyst. - How to learn from a situation where you hurt an other-self. Available for streaming or download here: http://goo.gl/0RuWVT
Retrieved mailstuffs from the PO Box and sent prisoner correspondence to Azeem.
Processed and shipped book orders and shared via social media.
Corresponded with moderators about mod stuff, including developing a new sub-forum and cleaning up the archetypes sub-forum.
Got all the material from Book V integrated into the interview document for the upcoming recording. Hope to get it all wrapped up by tomorrow. The most excited I've been about a particular project in a long time.
Received revisions to the Law of One timeline from Michelle - awesome and thorough work, she added session and question numbers, as well as specific quotes, for each date point on the timeline of events of the Ra material. This will be an excellent resource!
Responded to a Turkish seeker who declined a connection with another seeker I felt sure would be of some benefit.
Responded to foreign friends and seekers Mish and Roman
Squared away an issue with a book lost in transit.
Received and sent along a link for the Linkshare page to Steve.
Sent Edgard's edited PDF of Jochen's translation of Book IV in German to Steve for publication to the archive website! An amazing moment.
Since Carla's birthday is tomorrow and since we celebrate the day before, the day of, and the day after birthdays we got her an evening meal of bar-b-que ribs from the Village Anchor. We watched a block of NCIS and listened to the Classical Music Station for our protocol. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering. We were supposed to go to the cardiologist's office around noon so Carla could take a stress test, but when the doctor made the appointment last Thursday we told him it might not work because Carla would have to lie flat upon her wound and that is most painful. Well, Carla was in such pain Sunday that she couldn't move without bolts of lightning pain shooting through her body, so we cancelled the stress test today. Hopefully, that won't keep her from getting the sleep mask to treat her sleep apnea.
I went outside and finished leveling the rough places in the brick walk and put a little dirt with grass seed along some areas where the bricks were a little higher than the walkway. And it rained half an inch on the grass seed in the evening which is great although it means I'll have to spray the flowers again with deer repellant.
Gary and Austin worked remotely in the L/L office today:
The majority of my day was spent finishing reading Book V for the soon-to-begin interview project, and then continuing to work on the document of questions. And talked with Ken about his volunteer project to film the interview.
I worked remotely today because Trish was in day number two of a bad migraine. Interrupted the day mid-afternoon to take her to the ER, where, for a short spurt, I was able to read Book V. That ended though as I focused on supporting Trish to bear the IV. Trish has tiny veins that make it difficult enough, on top of which have developed a lot of scar tissue in key places from many, many times being stuck. It is always a terrible process to watch multiple sticks and nurses maneuvering the needle under the skin trying to get into or find the vein.
We both undertook moderator discussion and mod work, but Austin carried the rest of the bullet-pointed day.
Finalized parts 2 and 3 of Carla's interview with Denise Wilbanks, making them ready for upload to youtube.
Processed and shipped book orders.
Received and reviewed questions for the Interview Project, and finding a lack of inspirational spark, went on to work on the Online Store.
Researched the various capabilities of OpenCart, including possibilities for bundling audio downloads, integrating add-ons which would allow us to charge media mail prices only on relevant orders, worked on editing new photos for digital book downloads to make more clear that these products are downloads and not physical copies, learned how to create custom page templates, so not all products or category pages are stuck with the same features - very versatile and useful.
Reviewed and approved proof of A Wanderer's Handbook from CreateSpace. Finally have the right cover and it is now finalized.
Social media sharing.
Popped in to say hello to the study group, still going strong.
Worked on reviewing and adding to the interview project document.
Collected questions for n the Now.
Our evening was full of recorded episodes of NCIS. I found Carla's opening riff to tomorrow's Blog Talk Radio Show and printed it out. For our protocol we listened to the Classic Rock & Roll and then were treated to lightning, thunder, and rain outside our windows. It was quite the light show and we joined in with our own supercharged show of monster electrical magic. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.
