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. We wish you blessings, light and love! Carla L. Rueckert-McCarty and Jim McCarty. To view the Camelot Journal archive, please visit http://www.llresearch.org/journals/journals_camelot_toc.aspx.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona came by this morning to catch up on all that has happened with Carla since she last saw her. We decided to skip the silver nitrate application today because tomorrow Carla will see the back surgeon and he will want to look at the wound. It will be so much easier to show him the wound if there is not a lot of drainage from the silver nitrate. Mona also accessed Carla's port for a blood draw in response to Dr. Hamad's desire to be sure Carla's hemoglobin level is up.

 

After lunch Gary and Austin joined Carla and me for our weekly Blog Talk Radio Show. We talked about how to be of service to others and the Creator and whether we or the Creator has created all that we experience in our lives.

 

Afterwards I went outside and got half the yard and gardens weeded. The leaves are falling more heavily now and the cool weather is not far behind.

 

Gary and Austin were their busy selves in the L/L office today:

  • Joined the distinguished persons of Carla and Jim for our weekly, "In the Now" program. This episode we discuss:
    - Destiny, fate, the "center" from which our incarnational energies come.
    - Awareness of universal love.
    - How to find love in extremely heinous circumstances.
    Available for download or streaming here

  • Tis official! A momentous event is officially begun: the very first L/L Research satellite station has been born!

    With Jochen's leadership, the L/L Research material will have an organized, coherent, and enduring representation in another language.

    This makes us happy to no end, and opens brand new, completely unexplored roads into the future that will lead to... who knows where, but definitely toward increased opportunities for service, and a deeper capacity to fulfill the reason we walk the surface of this planet at this time.

    A big special hug, thank you, high five, fist bump, kiss, handshake, and thank you to the one known as Jochen B.
  • Spent a second round attempting to fix the disconnect between the computer's email client and the webservers. The difficulty started mysteriously last week and finally after much wasted consciousness resolved the issue this morning.
  • Received from Michelle H. the latest interview project transcript! The bio section on Jim. Thank you, Michelle!
  • Corresponded with Manuel regarding translation/editing work.
  • Got the Homecoming pictures finalized and shared in our google account
  • Wrote to Kindle about a Kindle issue, naturally.
  • Took dictation from Carla. She can usually speak really well, can't always type that well these days due to pain and eyesight.
  • Corresponded with the mods, discussing among our topics the possibility of using an automatic conversion for certain acronyms posted to the forums, especially for one member who we shall not name because Sarah knows who she is. (Her idea, actually.)
  • Received from Terry the "alternate Ra sessions"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NW87dBPjHuU
  • Enjoyed this video about a good-hearted individual with money who donates a $1,000 a day to a different individual or group offering their service to others: http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=4396

 

Our evening was blessed with a new episode of both NCIS and NCIS New Orleans. We enjoyed some Classical Music for our protocol and mixed in a few Modern Families for our late television viewing. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. After lunch we went to see Dr. Hamad, our family doctor, as is the protocol after getting out of the hospital. Dr. Hamad went over all that Carla had experienced in the hospital concerning her anemia, the infections, and the screws in her wound. Dr. Hamad has true compassion for Carla and sympathized greatly with all Carla has been through recently.

 

Fortunately there is the Bristol Bar and Grill next door to Dr. Hamad's office, so after the doctor's visit was over we went there to have a snack of cheese dip, pretzels, and a drink. Carla doesn't usually like pretzels, but these were very salty and she was instantly won over.

 

Gary and Austin put in another good day in the L/L office:

  • In the biggest best news today, got the German Licensing Agreement signed and off to Jochen. Once he adds his Mr. Hancock, we will have ourselves a deal.

  • Finalized the L/L graphic to be used in Jochen's L/L-related work that indicates what he is doing is in zusammenarbeit with L/L Research.

  • Subsequently ordered a second and (hopefully) final proof of A Channeling Handbook from Create Space.

  • Retrieved PO Box contents.

  • Did some work with the Amazon account and getting technical help for one of the devices.

  • Social via social media and continued with the digitizing of the Q'uo.

  • Processed and shipped book order.

  • Jumped through HOOPS AND HOOPS to try to get an account setup for Apple iBooks. Austin reflects that he doesn't understand how Apple is such a significant brand name.

  • Responded to various seekers including a follow-up from a friend we made at last year's Spirit Fest who wrote after attending this year's.

  • Did some light pow-wowing with the best mod team this side of the Andromeda Galaxy

  • Put together all the Light/Lines hardcopy and readied for sending.

  • Started compiling instructions and resources for the Office certification study guide.

  • Received three transcripts back from Aaron T., all three dealing with the Psychic Greeting section of the Interview Project, including "Why You Guys", "The Brunt of the Greeting", and "Dealing with Psychic Greeting". Thanks Aaron!

  • Heard back from Pupak and Thanasis and put together this notice soon to be published to our social media:
    In the spirit of facilitating connecting seekers together, we are happy to notify you of another Law of One study group forming via Skype. It will be led by a longtime friend of L/L's named Pupak H. (hoopoesong@gmail.com), and another bright seeker named Thanasis M. (a.megas@gmail.com). They hope to start the meetings in November and plan to meet at least once per month using Skype. Both are based in the UK.
    Pupak and Thanasis invite all interested readers to please feel free to drop them a line if you would like to join or have any questions.

  • Learned from Pupak that a group named New Story is meeting in Findhorn. Dig it upon cursory review: http://newstoryhub.com/about/

  • Read important study regarding animal emotions: 31 Dog Reactions For Everyday Situations

     

    Our evening was varied with a phone call to a special friend in Colorado. She and Carla talked for an hour about a visit in the near future. It was good to hear from Swifto again. We followed that with the protocol which we accomplished while listening to Elton John's Million Dollar Piano Concert from the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. He was pounding those keys with the greatest of ease. Our hearts began pumping as the rhythm was thumping and we danced the night away into the early morning hours. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. I began treating the area outside and below her wound with stoma powder today. The powder keeps the tape from sticking to the skin that is breaking down so that means that I need to tape lower on her back as well. When Mona returns Tuesday I will have to ask her about the best procedure. If there is going to be more surgery in that wound I would like for all the surrounding skin to be healthy.

 

From 1-3 this afternoon Carla was on the radio with Wynn F. and the topics of discussion today were fear and guilt, two qualities that can inhibit spiritual growth for any seeker. While Carla was on the air I stayed inside and answered some email that had backed up over the weekend.

 

After the radio show we got Carla's hair washed, got her into a pretty purple sun dress that goes with her purple hair, and then we took a wheelchair ride around the park-like area that we live in. We had a wonderful time looking at the beauty all around.

 

At 8 pm Gary and Austin joined us for our silent meditation. Actually, Gary came a little early and brought Carla a dinner order from The Dragon's Daughter. We shared our experiences of note from the week just past in our round robin and then meditated for about 20 minutes.

 

We did our protocol after the meditation and enjoyed listening to the Classical Music Station. Then we turned to axsTV and got to hear the rock group Wilco. They played some beautiful melodies and some rockin'rhythms. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. The drainage on her wound is down from usual since it has been 10 days since silver nitrate was used on her wound. I have begun treating the skin just outside and under the wound as it has been breaking down due to excess drainage passing over it and sitting on it. Since surgery is coming up I would like for all of the skin around the wound to be in good shape. The wound itself looks good and red.

 

Carla was on the air with Wynn F. from 1-3 this afternoon and the topic today was what health really is and means to a person. Is it defined by others or the self? While Carla was on the air I switched out the grass cutting blades for the gator blades so I can more easily mulch leaves. Then I cut the grass and mulched some leaves. The season is changing with many more colors in the trees now and the Shasta daisies are in bloom.

 

Carla read and played solitaire while I watched UK win its football game and then watched Louisville win its game. Nebraska wasn't on any channel that we get so I just kept up with their winning score.

 

Our evening was blessed with some NCIS and then the Classical Music Station for our protocol. When 11 pm rolled around we were able to watch a British group, Cold Play, on Austin City Limits. They sound a bit like the old U2 with a driving wall of sound. We enjoyed them and then chose an NCIS episode to watch as we fell asleep. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. It was suggested in the hospital that we change  Carla's dressing twice per day, but since we have not seen Mona in over a week and thus no silver nitrate has been applied there is not so much drainage from the wound now to cause a second dressing change to be necessary. The wound continues to look good and the area outside the wound and at its bottom where the drainage was breaking down the skin is responding to Neosporin as are the incipient bedsores on Carla's behind.

 

After lunch I went outside and switched out the blades on my two big mowers so that I now have gator blades on both. Using the gator blades along with shutting off the discharge chute will allow me to pulverize the leaves that have begun falling more abundantly now. I also cleaned out the filters on both ponds and blew the leaves on the ground into position so that I can mulch them tomorrow.

 

Our evening was blessed with an abundance of NCIS and Modern Family. As usual, we accompanied our evening protocol with the Classical Music Station. We tried to watch the WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour but went to sleep after the first song. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

It was Carla's first full day back home from her 5-day hospital stay. We did our Morning Offering and gave thanksgiving to be home together. The hospital stay was made bearable by some great nurses and staff, but the food was atrocious and along with a couple of weeks of upset tummy we weighed Carla and discovered that she has lost 15 lbs. Now she looks ready to model swimsuits on the runway.

 

We shared lunch with Gary and Austin and discussed the final details concerning the licensing agreement that our good friend Jochen has drawn up that will give him the opportunity to print our books in the German language and will also serve as a blueprint for other people in other countries to do the same in the future. Legal matters are never easy to wrangle together, at least for me, but Jochen has done a marvelous job and we are most grateful to him for his work.

 

After lunch Carla and I headed off to see Dr. McCurry, the plastic surgeon who has been overseeing Carla's wound care for the last couple of years after the orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Campbell, installed the titanium screws in her lower back vertebrae 3 ½ years ago and couldn't get the wound to close without infection in the first year. Dr. McCurry took a look at the two titanium screws that are now visible inside Carla's wound and immediately called Dr. Campbell who will see Carla next Wednesday to take X-rays and then schedule surgery to remove the screws because the wound won't heal with them exposed due to unavoidable infection.

The news that Carla will need more surgery was definitely not what we wanted to hear, but we were expecting it. So on the way home from Dr. McCurry's we stopped at the Longhorn Steakhouse for some shrimp, lobster, and spinach dip and chips. Carla enjoyed a Long Island tea and I sipped on two Pepsis. It was delicious and fed our tummies and our minds.

 

Gary and Austin were churning out more good work in the L/L office:

  • Cordially emailed the 131st edition of the Light/Lines Newsletter to the subscription list. You can view the latest issue hereabouts: http://llresearch.org/newsletters/indexes/2014.aspx
  • Adeptly printed out the hardcopy version for incarcerated seekers and those without the internets.
  • Ran to keep the quick keeping of the books.
  • Lovingly corresponded with head of Prison Ministry, Azeem.
  • And then tweaked a few small imperfections on the new Channeling Handbook cover design, resubmitted for a new proof.
  • Reconnoitered with C&J for lunch stuffs and L/L discussions, including on the point of Jochen's proposed German publishing house. And subsequently
  • Opened the German-language Licensing Agreement, fine-tuned, and readied it for signing.
  • Carefully wrote Jochen of the happy occasion.
  • Kept up with the daily social media sharing and the continued digitization of the Q'uo Principle.
  • Speedily fixed an issue with links on some YouTube videos.
  • ! Was our response to some seeker emails. In the process, got the ball rolling on scheduling a counseling session with Carla.
  • Helpfully developed a plan for creating a study guide for MOS certification, which means Microsoft Office Specialist certification. Awww yeah.
  • Exchanged correspondence with moderators about stuff of the moderator persuasion.
  • Advanced forward in the ongoing effort to import and editing audio for the Q'uo MP3 project.
  • Light sent to Steve in appreciation for getting Austin's image headers into the online store. We have new sections for "Ra Audio" and "eBooks"! Check our sexy online store now: https://store.bring4th.org/
  • Love this little article about how Winnie the Pooh was based on a real bear that participated in WWI

 

Our evening began with a lovely nap. When we awakened there was a block of NCIS on television which drew our attention for a while until it became time for the protocol. After completing the protocol it struck us that we needed to continue the party atmosphere of the afternoon and so we took all of our "welcome home" energies and threw a bash that made tuning forks out of our bodies and we visibly vibrated into a realm of power and pleasure that we had never seen before.

 

Then we were so full of energy that sleep didn't cross our minds until after 1 am. Before that we ordered out a pizza from Papa John's and continued the revelry until we really were ready to drop. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

When I got to the hospital around 8 pm this morning Carla and I knew that she was going home today, as promised by the doctors yesterday.

 

So we set about doing our Morning Offering and then relaxed some into her doing the crossword puzzles from the newspaper and I read the paper as is my usual morning ritual. Then we got Carla's dressing on her wound changed. This was the first morning that I didn't have an audience to observe the dressing change.

 

Just as lunch was served the nurse came in and said that she had begun the paper work that would get Carla out. Carla had already received three different antibiotics via her port and the nurse said that they were going to send her home with a prescription for a fourth antibiotic.

And then I got our things packed and accompanied Carla and the nurse down the elevator, got the car, secured Carla inside and our prison break was complete.

 

The food was so bad in the hospital that I learned a shortcut to Frisch's Burgers and that was our first stop on the way home. We went through the drive thru and Carla happily munched on a Buddy Boy Burger as we headed to the promised land of home.

 

Gary and Austin were glad to see us and we all took some time to welcome Carla home.

 

Gary and Austin continued in their productive ways in the L/L office:

  • CARLA IS BACK!!! And as usual, somehow, by some defiance (or successful processing) of tough catalyst, is beaming. Maybe it is just elation to be home after five days.
  • Sent out a note seeking a new volunteer General Editor for L/L Research. If you think you might be a good fit, please read our notice! http://www.bring4th.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=9952
  • Responded to a group email initiated by Tobey and Matt P. to find an intelligible way to represent a, shall we say, welter of a statement from Ra. What Seph calls, "decidedly the most difficult passage in the entire text". The workings of grammar were stretched to their limit by each who attempted to organize this statement into coherency.
  • Caught up on various correspondence with the tireless promoter of the Law of One in Taiwan. And received from him an actual missing transcript in the L/L archive from a Channeling Circle. Over the years Terry has occasionally found little errors and inconsistencies. How, I don't know. But he is ever diligent and we are ever grateful for the tightening of the ship he helps facilitate. Also received a new batch of Chinese sessions from Terry.
  • Responded to a couple of volunteers for more intensive dialogue on a particular question.
  • Responded to Edgard, our friend now working on helping to produce the Scholar's Edition pdf about said project.
  • Sent a group email to Tobey about the Scholar's Edition as well.
  • Cleaned up the YouTube page, combed through some old video descriptions to get rid of outdated information, organized the landing page, chose a channel trailer, and created playlists for ADK's Q'uo series and Denise's interviews for easy sharing.
  • Continued digitizing Q'uo and shared via social media.
  • Processed and shipped a book order.
  • Investigated local and online training for MS Office products. Austin and I need to up our game and fully unlock the power of these tools.
  • Processed PO Box mail, replying to prisoner requests, passing prisoner letters on to Azeem, responding to and processing a donation.
  • Received and reviewed the proof for the new Channeling Handbook from Create Space.
  • Corresponded with the mod team regarding the Community Relationships sub forum.
  • Finished getting Carla's new setup equipped with documents and mouse holder.

 

Our evening was spent rejoicing at being home together and getting back into our routines. NCIS, Modern Family, protocol with the Classical Music Station, and so forth. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight. We went to sleep watching the Colbert Report.

I got to the hospital about 7:30 this morning and was glad to see that Carla was smiling and happy to see me. We traded how our nights went and talked about the upcoming day. After I had done what I could for Carla I prepared the tray table with all the supplies that I would need when the wound care doctor came around in the later morning.

 

Before the wound care doc arrived we were visited by an internal medicine doctor who specializes in infections. His basic message was that when you have any foreign object in your body you will likely always have a low grade infection. Because Carla has these titanium screws in her spine that are now showing in one place on her wound the wound cannot be expected to heal. This varies markedly with what our plastic surgeon has said in that he believes if we are patient the wound will eventually kick into high gear and heal itself rapidly. I foresee conversations with our doctors about this. The good part of his advice is that now there is no need for a bone scan because we know the screws will have some infection around them.

 

An assistant to the wound care doctor did finally come around noon and was appreciative of how we handle Carla's wound. She had some suggestions on how to reverse the breaking down of the skin just below the wound because of wound drainage almost sitting on it.

 

We did manage to finally get a Morning Offering included in our morning and it felt good to get back to that after a few days of doing hospital instead.

 

Gary and Austin were doing yeoman's duty in the L/L office today:

  • Placed physical body complex into square constructed building for purposes of business commerce wherein is sent and received mail stuffs of our peoples and, deftly operating the opposable thumbs in conjunction with the other appendage digits in order to retrieve mail stuffs addressed to the organization known as L/L Research
  • Put together an album of Homecoming photos and sent it off to the group for their review before sharing. But before this was accomplished, sang a mantra of:
  • "I abhor google+, I abhor google+, I abhor google+". Their user interface is so freaking unintuitive and non-user friend and one big Charlie Foxtrot. Lost a bunch of time today trying to find where an album was uploaded. We're considering getting all our YouTube videos over to vimeo and closing down the google account.
  • On his short return trip home from the hospital, and over the phone while at the hospital, talked over some projects with the Jim.
  • Received Manuel's first full, final Spanish translation! Hip Hip hooray! This is the first in what will hopefully be a long-term effort to translate the sessions into Spanish, leading maybe one day to the entire transcript library being translated into español.
  • Had a good discussion with a couple other S American volunteers regarding translation.
  • Finally installed a couple of braces onto Carla's swivel to create a means of securing a stand-up folder that will hold papers within her reach.
  • Corresponded with Tobey and mods about the sessions sub-forum.
  • Replied to various seeker emails.
  • Wrote Pupak about her and Thanasis' hope to form a Skype Law of One study group.
  • Worked on editing the next couple parts of Carla's interview with Denise Wilbanks, uploaded part 5 (http://youtu.be/3sGGPhvSx10)
  • Incredible story of a man who lived in isolation for 27 years. No contact with a single person, no conversation, and had never seen the internet: The Strange & Curious Tale of the Last True Hermit

 

For our evening we got lucky and were able to see the first episode of NCIS for this season. And on top of that we got to see the premier episode of the new NCIS New Orleans. A good time was had by all. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

I headed to the hospital about 7 am and found that Carla was without covers and still sweating. I had left her cold and covered with blankets. She did have a 100.5 fever so the staff began to look for a possible infection. They took blood and urine samples and gave her a portable chest X-ray. The X-ray was negative but the urine showed indications of infection. They began dripping two antibiotics into her port. Another possible source of infection is my recent discovery that this one yellowish place in the center of her wound was deteriorating and now to such a point that I can see parts of two titanium screws which were used to fuse her bottom vertebrae in April of 2011 when this all began.

 

I have made an appointment with the surgeon in charge of Carla's wound but he does not have privileges at Baptist Hospital, so Baptist Hospital's wound care doc will visit tomorrow morning to offer his advice. There will also be a bone scan done to see if there is any indication of infection from the screws now being visible.

 

Things look better on the anemia front. Carla has now received three units of blood and one unit of iron. Her normal hemoglobin count was 9.0. She was advised to go to the ER because it had fallen to 6.0. The first infusions got it to 8.5, but it fell to 7.7 the next day. So they gave her another unit of blood and now her count is 9.9. If it holds tomorrow and they get the bone scan done with no indication of infection Carla may be able to come home tomorrow. We've got our fingers crossed.

Gary and Austin were busy once again in the L/L office:

  • Canceled this week's episode of "In the Now" as Carla is experiencing an unexpected stay in the hospital, and Jim by her side.

  • Put together a request for a new volunteer General Editor for L/L Research. Will post tomorrow with a link in this blog report in the event that you may be interested and able.
  • Did some research into online courses for learning the editing/proofreading ropes in the event we could try to bring that skill in house.
  • Tried readying the old printer to sell that has been hiding under a desk for almost two years now. Still seems mostly operational but opted instead to recycle.
  • Started the big Q'uo MP3 project which will take all the Q'uo channeling sessions we've been transferring from cassette to CD for years, and getting them into the store for download. Worked out a protocol for the project, began editing intro and outro, configuring programs, importing audio, and getting pumped.
  • Processed and shipped book order.
  • Updated the study group information in the "Gatherings Newsletter' for the Taiwanese study groups thanks to information from our great good friend Terry.
  • Wrote Edgard and Tobey about a happy new project we are initiating. We will create the "Scholar's Edition" as a free PDF available for download and online reading.
  • Received a Homecoming transcript and sent another one off. Thank you, John!
  • And received a new Interview Project transcript. Thank you, Aaron T.!
  • And a quote from Tricycle's "Daily Dharma", "The very act of clinging causes mental distress-have you ever noticed that longing hurts? Moreover, the exertions are futile since grasping cannot extend the life of pleasure, not even by a nanosecond. As for unpleasant sensations-in truth, they disappear in a moment, too. But when you feel averse to them, the pain doubles. It's like trying to remove a thorn in your foot by piercing the skin with a second thorn. If we could let go, the mind wouldn't suffer." - Cynthia Hatcher, "What's So Great About Now?"

 

 

I've been reading a book to Carla that both of us are really impressed and excited about: Journey of the Soul, by Dr. Michael Newton. It's both a factual and inspirational account of what we as souls do in between incarnations as we learn from one and plan another. It fits in perfectly with the Law of One information and Secrets of the UFO. We highly recommend it.

 

We said our prayers over the phone and sank into sleep. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.
