Member: Bring4th_CarlaLisbeth Location: Anchorage, KY Gender: Female Interests: Serving the Creator and my other-selves, singing, reading for fun (romances, sci-fi and mysteries) collecting recipes, eating out (I love to do that!), hanging with St. Luke's Episcopal Church community of worship and singing in the choir, making the Law of One information more easily available, writing on a the second book of a three-book series on the principles of the Law of One, reading other channeling and spiritually oriented books, learning about bio-dynamic gardening and living, patting our kitties and keeping up with friends.
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. The titanium screws are more visible in the wound today. It almost seems like I could just pull it out with very little effort. But, of course, I won't try. Carla's tummy is very unsettled, especially after taking the laxative for the capsule endoscopy last Wednesday. We need to find a better anti-nausea medication than Zofran.
Gary and Austin joined us for lunch and we talked more about Gary and Trish's wedding and Gary's and Austin's trip to the metaphysical conference in Columbus, OH. last weekend.
I brought all the rest of the house plants in today for the winter as we expect a hard freeze tomorrow night. I also finished planting the daffodils, narcissus, and small wildflowers in the pet cemetery area. Good to be done!
Gary and Austin continued to produce volumes of work in the L/L office:
Performed the weekly keeping of the books, gathered the monthly Kindle reports, and put together an away plan while the honeymoon is underway.
Corresponded with CreateSpace about the Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweetwater cover issue.
Went to the post office to deliver a special birthday message and pick up stamps for the yearly fundraiser.
Corresponded with volunteers for the Homecoming 2014 transcription project, sending out another transcript and getting word from others about their progress.
Responded to email from seekers sharing different sorts of information.
Received some great questions for our "In the Now" database from JP.
Continued work on the Q'uo MP3 project.
Continued digitizing Q'uo (which is a different process from the above-named project).
Social media sharing.
Enjoyed a good lunch with Carla and Jim.
Responded to various sorts of seeker emails, including getting a portion of our most recent "In the Now" transcribed for Terry H. whose English comprehension in writing is excellent. Not so much for the quickly spoken English over a telephone line.
Heard from Stephen K. that there is still hope to see what a professional audio technician can do to clean up the Ra audio.
Got the whole fundraiser letter printed up for mailing. Will begin folding the letters and if the envelopes come in time, will begin putting it together this weekend.
And a brief report on our weekend at the Universal Life Expo in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend. The event is an interesting one, with between 200 - 300 different vendors in a giant convention hall offering products and services ranging from psychic readings, to massage, to crystals, to clothing, to instantaneous martial arts mastery via download a la The Matrix. Then there was us. Austin and I set out all of L/L Research's books (which make for quite a presentable if ragtag lot when taken together). We displayed 24 x 36" posterboard printed with a Ra quote, Quixote logo, and website info on a wooden easel. And we offered some print-outs with information, including a small brochure with condensed vital L/L stats.
It is a good thing that our objective wasn't to sell books, per se, because we only sold a handful. Our great hope (unattached though we were to outcome) was simply to share information, to represent this work which is otherwise under- or un-represented in the new age/metaphysical/seeking community. There is not an urgency or need to disseminate, or a feeling that we must shout this from the mountaintops! We are mindful of Ra's gentle suggestion to forget you the counting, and hope in that spirit only to drop seeds, and serve as needed. If one person is aided, then, according to Ra, all are aided.
There are questions that emerge for us though. For instance, one challenge that continually presents itself: how do we speak about this philosophy to the passerby? What words do you use to give a thumbnail description? How do you possibly convey what this is and the magnitude of its (subjectively perceived) awesome in a few words? You don't, really. You just offer a watered down vague idea that this is information and philosophy about spiritual evolution and metaphysics. It is channeled. And, yes, there does seem to be a connection with the Ra of Egyptian mythology (your credibility increases when you begin heading down this road).
Another question: do you do anything to make the booth appealing? To catch the eye and draw people in? Is that in keeping with the spirit of the Confederation's intentions and mission, and the intentions of those who channeled them? No, it's not, in our opinion. So you plainly offer everything as is, and you make no motion, in presentation or in speech, to spin anything from the angle of the salesman: no sensationalizing, no gimmickry, no added sugar. This makes your booth even more passable, as many (but definitely not all) vendors there are acting the part of salesman. (You can't blame them, though. Many rely on these expos to make a living.)
And the people who attend these events, Austin and I have come to believe, are not there to seek philosophy. Naturally there is presumably a desire to learn, but most, we believe, are looking for services with quicker gratification, such as energy work, or massage, or psychic readings; or most are seeking health-oriented products, or crystals, or that vendor in the corner with the really good Kettle Corn, we must say. This is not to denigrate that seeking, we enjoy all those things too. But most probably aren't looking for a whole new philosophy. Were we attending an expo of this size, we wouldn't be looking for one either in that type of setting.
Reflecting on the three outings we've had thus far, we're considering that this is not the right environment for us. But, we don't know what other environment would be. Perhaps it is that the Law of One has no place being displayed in closer proximity to the more highly trafficked roads. Perhaps it is that this information is inherently designed to remain obscure and off the beaten path, to be discovered only by the seeker who consciously or unconsciously veers from the main roads in search of the uncommon gem.
And that is fine with us too. There is no need on our parts for this information to be at the collective front and center, or to add quantity to the few who study this material. But if Ra's numbers are to be believed, there are many souls who may be profoundly aided by this material, as we ourselves have been. Aided not in a way that creates a dependency on the material, but in a way that empowers the seeker to recognize that they are the truth they seek, and the authors of their own experience. And, especially for the wanderer, that there is a sense and order to this life and to this illusion. And that in all the power that is available, and the transformation that is possible, and the awakening that is inevitable, light and love are the portals through which the positive seeker must necessarily pass in order to enter the present moment that is already here.
So, while we do not possess the zeal of the proselytizer, and have no interest in telling a single soul that they "need' this information, we are at the same time not averse to opening as many doors to this information as possible, leaving it forever to the seeker's own unpersuaded discernment whether to step through that door, and how best to evaluate the merit of the information for themselves.
Just as I was about to take my late afternoon nap, Carla said she needed to use the commode, and, viola! the camera that she swallowed for the capsule endoscopy passed. Good to have that little detail taken care of. Our evening was full of U of L football as they almost beat Florida State, the second-ranked team in the country. Very exciting. We did our protocol accompanied by the Classical Music Station, and then I read from the Destiny of Souls again. Tonight we read about primary soul mates that are our mates for eternity working closely with us in almost all incarnations. There are also companion soul mates who are members of our spirit group who work with us often. And then there are affiliated soul mates who are from nearby spirit groups and who work with us periodically in our Earth incarnations. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

This was the morning for Carla's capsule endoscopy, so we got up at 5 am so she could take her medication the required three hours before the procedure. We got to the gastroenterologist's office at 8 am and Carla was fitted with half a dozen leads on her tummy area and then with a belt that would read the results of the camera that she swallowed and hopefully give us all a clue as to why Carla is so anemic.
We did the dressing change and protocol before we left for the doctor's office, and when we returned we did our Morning Offering and Carla was now officially ready for her day which had begun so early.
Since Carla was directed to eat or drink nothing for the first couple hours of the test and since she wasn't hungry either, she mostly slept and stayed in bed during the eight hours the test was ongoing. While she was resting I began the process of bringing in our house plants because we are expecting a hard freeze this Friday night. We have about 50 house plants and each one needed some trimming a tree leaf removal before coming in. Just a few plants left that are hanging around the side fish pond.
Gary and Austin were their dependably busy selves in the L/L office today:
Made forward progress for the annual fundraiser. Converted the whole database over to labels and got them printed. Updated the "How to" make a fundraiser document, though it's pretty much muscle memory by this point. And worked with Jim and Carla to edit and finalize the begging letter.
Selected Austin's supremely realized image for the "Channeling Audio" header, responded to Steve and Austin and planned a reorganization of the storefront.
Took a trip to pick up a small gift for our favorite USPS mail clerk's birthday.
Followed up with the Homecoming 2014 transcription project, contacting volunteers who haven't found the time to transcribe their chosen projects yet and putting out a call for others to pick up some talks which were not chosen.
Took some pictures of the flawed Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweetwater cover and sent a message to CreateSpace to see if they could send us some reprints to verify it was a printing error.
Continued Q'uo digitization.
Social media sharing.
Received and stocked an order of Law of One books.
Corresponded with EB, a lovely, poetic, and mystical seeker of the overseas geography who always has an eye on the divine.
Contacted one of the four volunteers of the Interview Project. She requested about ten sections but it seems has been stalled since the beginning. Checking to see if she's still interested or would like to release it.
Heard back from Susanna on the question of certification for Italian AWH royalty payments. And that her daughter just earned her PhD! Congratulations!
Responded to seeker email and corresponded with Daniel A. on the Portuguese translation of the Law of One.
Received from Aaron T. an Interview Project transcript for the second section in the biography of L/L Research after the Ra Contact. Sent her the next installment. Thank you, Aaron!
Continued assisting a Bring4th member with their account.
Went for a walk, Austin and I did. It was crystal-clear blue skies and the most intense of fall colors. We're at the peak of peak season, I believe. I don't imagine these colors and leaves will last much longer. Shame there isn't time to lie outside in the grass and watch the leaves drift downward.
We returned to the doctor's office at about 4 pm and the contacts and belt were removed from Carla and we were told that it would take about 48 hours for all the information about her small intestine to be downloaded and then the doctor would need to interpret the data. It will probably be about a week before we hear the results.
For our evening we watched some NCIS and did our protocol accompanied by the Classical Music Station. Then I read more from the Destiny of Souls to Carla. Tonight we learned that the souls who go before the Council of Elders often speak of "The Presence" which overshadows the Council. Some feel this might be the Creator, but others feel that it is indeed a greater soul but not the ultimate Creator of all things. The purpose of the Presence is to aid the Council and the soul before it to plan well the lessons of the upcoming incarnations and to look to previous incarnations for the strength to take on new lessons. 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 Carla's dressing. She also applied the next dose of silver nitrate on her wound. Today we also began getting ready for tomorrow's capsule endoscopy by cutting off Carla's intake of solid food at lunch time. It was a clear liquid diet for the rest of the day.
After lunch Gary and Austin joined Carla and me for our Blog Talk Radio show where we discussed the waking consciousness in comparison to the greater consciousness that invites the diving deeply for hints as to our true nature and purpose in life. Some other questions were defining the "quiet horror" with which good people observe negativity on Earth, when will Carla begin channeling again, will aliens land in the future, and a discussion of the nature of the seven densities.
After the show I took advantage of the light rain that had fallen this afternoon and blew all the leaves into position to be mulched in our yard. Leaves mulch ever so much better if they have a little water content. They stay in place and are less likely to be blown away by the mower blades.
Gary and Austin were quite productive in the L/L office today:
Collected questions for in the In the Now and
After considering said questions, joined Carla and Jim for the weekly "In the Now". In this episode we discuss: - The Council of Saturn - Why the Earth will be 4th density positive when it seems to be negative. - Whether the quarantine is lifted. - The 7 densities. Available for download and streaming here
Paid a visit to the Office Max for office and fundraiser supplies, and then a trip to Sam's for the same.
Helped a stalwart Bring4th member with their account
Shared daily via social media sharing.
Worked on fixing a compatibility issue betwixt scanner and computer, writing to Epson to get help with the issue and tested out an OCR program for digitizing an old collection of L/L work "Voices of the Gods" and attempted to determine the most efficient way to go about the project.
Continued digitizing Q'uo.
Received the latest round of Chinese transcripts from the persevering Terry Hsu.
Received and edited Carla and Jim's draft for the annual "begging letter", and bounced it back to them for final review before printing.
Contacted a local printer to get envelopes printed for the coming marathon stuffing of the Envelopes. (Like Running of the Bulls, but only more exhilarating. And dangerous.)
Responded to various seeker emails, always a genuine honor.
Helped Morgan with editing questions for the French 101.
Forgot to mention that in the course of database editing yesterday, what I was listening to was an interview with Eban Alexander, author of "Proof of Heaven". Alexander is a neurosurgeon who went into a coma for a week. While his body was in that state, his mind and/or spirit complex was having the wildest ride over a span of time he subjectively felt to be centuries. Dr. Alexander had lost all sense of who he was on Earth during his experience in the more subtle realms and upon awakening from the coma brought back a report about the true nature of reality that bears remarkable congruency with other reports from NDE's, past-life regressions, channeling, mystics, and even the Law of One material. Though his report did not quite have Ra's breadth of overview and depth of insight, he did describe the absolute unity of all things, the unconditional love that pervades everything, and the value of meditation and prayer. Very fascinating! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOSb3G53HsA. (Thank you for the recommendation, Terry.)
Carla was feeling pretty queasy in the tummy this evening due to having to take magnesium citrate, a laxative, so we just let her rest and did not do the protocol. We watched some NCIS and Modern Family, and then I read to her from the Destiny of Souls. Tonight we read about the Council of Elders again and the medallions that various members of that Council wear that are meant to give hints to the souls coming before the Council as to the lessons either just completed in the most recent incarnation or lessons to come in the upcoming incarnation. The medallions can contain nature images, geometric shapes, straight or wavy lines, or gemstones among other images. They are meant to trigger recognition of incarnational purposes of the soul just leaving or just going into incarnation. 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 from the silver nitrate tapers off after the third day or so. Mona will be here tomorrow to apply more. Carla's plumbing problems are slowly responding to treatment. Her tummy is as upset as it has ever been and makes eating hard, which in turn makes it hard to keep up energy levels. We found that a sip or two of white wine seems to help get the tummy more receptive to food.
I planted a couple hundred daffodils and narcissus in the front yard this afternoon. We are trying to get them to naturalize there and make a little meadow of yellow in the spring.
Gary and Austin returned from the Columbus Expo Wars and forged ahead in the L/L office today:
Stopped by the PO Box to retrieve mailstuffs.
Corresponded with Jochen and celebrated the news that he has settled upon the name, "Das Gesetz des Einen Verlag (Deutschland)" as his registered, legal name, but will use a dba without the reference to Germany.
Began the massive task of getting L/L's annual fundraiser underway. Spent the afternoon getting the snail mail database created which includes removing international addresses (postage too expensive anymore), and prisoner addresses (who as a general rule of thumb aren't contributing), wrote Steve about the email database, looked into getting envelopes pre-printed with return address to save a sizeable chunk of work, asked Carla and Jim if they would commence the authoring of the letter, so on and so forth.
But in the process knocked out a task that's had a residence on the To Do list for ages. Years of previous bookkeepers incorrectly listed the name in the Bill To address section as last name comma first name. (This is a different field from the one QuickBooks uses to file the names, which do need to be last name first name.) Come time to print the database, the envelope appears "Smith, John". So Austin and I turned on some audio to stimulate our minds, donned the headphones, and listened while we performed the mindless, mechanical task of correcting the entire database.
Wrote Susanna regarding whether she had received the paperwork for royalties of the Italian AWH.
Continued the project to digitize Q'uo.
Responded to a troubled seeker.
Talked over where next to begin making headway while other projects continue. Decided it's time to get the typewritten manuscript for what was then called "Voices of the Gods" into digital form.
Received the proof of Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweetwater, with a very slight imperfection in the cover. After reviewing in CreateSpace's digital proofer, it seems the error is probably caused by slight printing imperfection.
Reintegrated all the stuff we brought back from the L/L Research booth we hosted at the Universal Life Expo this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio. Put all the books back, restocked the office, returned things to their home, processed the handful of orders we received over the weekend. Would write a report of this but I'm pooped and I'm fasting today. Been go go go since the wedding concluded and come time for our first weekend of marriage I was away from my wife (so strange to say!) at this expo. That plus a tall list of things to do before the honeymoon launches causes me to beg your leave. I know I leave you hanging on the edge of your seats, but rest assured that tomorrow's installment will have a full report of the Expo weekend.
Our evening began with the usual block of NCIS and then we decided to do the protocol with the Classical Music Station to accompany us. Then I read more to Carla from Destiny of Souls. We continued reading about the Council of Elders. They meet with each returning soul to help them determine what was learned in the previous incarnation and when the soul has rejoined its cluster group and done the appropriate healing and planning for the next incarnation it again appears before the Council of Elders which again asks questions to help the soul determine how to proceed with the upcoming incarnation. There is no judgment from the Council, only compassion and support. Any judgment comes from the soul itself and it uses its own judgment to fuel its desire to learn what was not learned before. This process is probably where the myths of heaven and hell come from. However, this did not keep us from exploring our own heavenly energy exchange and we discovered that such Elysian Fields are indeed inner realities. 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 area around the titanium screws was a deep red this morning. I don't know what that means. I'll ask Mona tomorrow. Carla still has significant plumbing problems which we have been addressing for some time and I am wondering if the magnesium citrate that she will take for the capsule endoscopy Wednesday will be able to clear out her system so she can swallow the camera.
Carla was on the air with Wynn F. from 1-3 this afternoon and they talked about the spiritual journey for new seekers. While she was on the air I planted the rest of our tulips along our Little Locust Creek at its origin.
In order to go to the memorial service for my good friend, Eric Swan, I enlisted the aid of three neighbors who all said that they would be glad to be on call for Carla if she needed anything while I was gone for three or four hours. It was a beautiful day, 75 degrees, blue skies, and leaves of every color enlivening the hills and valleys for the 140 mile trip. When I arrived at Eric's house I expected to find his sisters and a few folks gathered for the memorial service. Instead I found locked doors and no one around. But that was OK since my personal memorial service was composed of thinking of the good times Eric and I shared since I was last in Marion County 34 years ago.
I got back to Anchorage just in time for the evening meal, and then Carla and I had our silent meditation. Usually Gary and Austin join us for the meditation but since they were in Columbus, OH at a book convention we have had the whole house to ourselves for the weekend and it has been wonderful to feel the solitude. I read to Carla from the Destiny of Souls and we learned that there is a Council of Elders that each soul appears before both before and after incarnations to help plan and review incarnations. We watched some NCIS afterwards and then some Modern Family. Our protocol was accompanied by the Classic Rock & Roll station. 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 plumbing is still giving us fits and the tummy being upset seems to be connected to that problem. Even taking pills is a challenge when you ready don't want to swallow anything. The areas around and outside the wound on the bottom and top left are improving and the wound itself looks good.
Carla was on the air with Wynn F. from 1-3 this afternoon and besides praying for the troubled places around the world there was discussion about positive and negative actions by people and how it is hard to tell whether they are intentional or not.
While Carla was on the radio I planted some tulips around the side fish pond. One more day for tulips and then it's on to daffodils and small wild flowers. When Carla got off the air we washed her hair and took her for a wheelchair ride around the neighborhood. It was a gloriously beautiful day with blue skies and leaves of red, orange, yellow, and green. We really enjoyed being out together.
I read to Carla from Destiny of Souls again and tonight we learned about spirit names in the home groups or clusters. It seems like we all have groups of people with whom we have incarnated many, many times with relationships varying. We listened to the Classical Music Station for our protocol, and then on Austin City Limits we were well entertained by Jeff Tweedy and his band. 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 Carla's dressing and she also applied more silver nitrate. The drainage in general and bleeding in particular has increased nicely as the silver nitrate kicks the wound into healing gear once again.
Around noon we headed for what we thought was Carla's 1 pm Orencia infusion at her rheumatologist's. But the receptionist said that our appointment had been cancelled. There was some rearranging of appointments thinking Carla would have back surgery this week, but someone in the office got confused and cancelled the wrong appointment. So we consoled ourselves with lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.
After we got home I planted another couple hundred tulips in the back yard. One more good day with tulips should see their completion and then I will begin the daffodils. There are only a couple hundred of those.
Gary and Austin left for Columbus, OH this afternoon to attend a metaphysical convention to try to sell some L/L books. It's hard to sell books without a corresponding speaker to tell the audiences about the books, so we just hope that they have a good time without big expectations of book sales.
Our evening was full of great music on television. On Kentucky Educational Television we found a Great Performances presentation of Tony Bennett singing with Lady Gaga at the Lincoln Center in New York City. They were perfectly matched and each voice soared together and alone as they sang the classic blues and jazz standards. Then on the WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour we once again found Janiva Magnus singing her hard-won blues from her album It Only Makes Me Stronger. Sharing the stage was Minton Sparks who sings the most original, personal, dark, humorous indescribable genre of haunting music I have ever heard. With all this music in the air it was inevitable that there would be some dancing and singing and smiling and soaring into the etheric realms on our parts. We flew freely for what seemed like forever. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Her stomach was so upset this morning that she had to call off communion with one of the Episcopal Church ladies who comes by on Wednesdays to offer communion. She didn't feel she could swallow the wafer. The queasiness got a little better as the day went on.
I put in another couple hundred tulips in the back yard this afternoon. Another couple of day's work should see all the tulips planted in all of the flower gardens. It looks like we ordered the right amount to do the job.
Gary and Austin looked very busy in the L/L office today:
Did the weekly keeping of the books
Responded to Daniel A., the Portuguese translator, about future translations and his offer to volunteer in whatever way may be needed. Thank you, Daniel!
Responded to seeker email, including one from a fellow who has traveled throughout Asia the past four years working with yogis, mystics, and teachers.
Enjoyed seeing a connection made between Micheline and Morgan
Shipped some stuff left at the house from a guest and caught up with H. at the post office
Replied to Jochen's email concerning his efforts in Germany and then
Got him all the basic material we use when constructing workshops to help him form his own.
Finished collecting supplies and books for the trip to ULE this weekend, cleaned up the book inventory area in the basement a bit in the process.
Placed an order for more law of one books.
Sent the new poster design for ULE to OfficeMax, took a trip to pick it up a few hours later.
Checked a couple of errors in the transcripts found by Terry with audio from the archive.
Our evening was full of NCIS and then we found this month's concert on axsTV which was Dierks Bently whom we had seen a portion of previously. Tonight we got to see the Punch Brothers and Del McCurry join him on stage and they sang "In the Name of Love", an old folk song made popular by U2. There is no other voice like blue grass legend Del McCurry's high lonesome sound for the high parts. We continued with these guys through the protocol. 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 silver nitrate got the drainage and the bleeding going full steam again, and that's what we want. "If it ain't bleeding, it ain't healing." Carla's tummy continues to be upset and not wanting food until about lunch time and then it's half rations, at best. The plumbing problem stays with us and we continue to treat with roto-rooter.
Gary and Austin joined us for lunch and we talked mostly about Gary and Trish's wedding from last weekend. Trish is having more ER issues that make their honeymoon to Peru a little tricky. Our prayers continue to be with them.
I mulched the leaves in the back yard this afternoon and then followed that with planting another 100 tulip bulbs. I used a drill and a tulip auger this afternoon and it felt like I was cheating, but my ground whacking muscles are recovering nicely for another go tomorrow.
Gary and Austin continue to put out loads of good work in the L/L office:
Wrote L/L friends about the wedding. Still aglow from that day that was a dream.
Processed PO Box mail, responding to prisoner book and information requests, sending on letters to Azeem, and processing a donation.
Reviewed the digital proof of Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweetwater and ordered a physical proof to final inspection from CreateSpace.
Joined Carla and Jim for lunch.
Austin received feedback from me and Steve on the design for the Channeling Audio header for the online store. Reworked the concept and sent it off for judgment.
Started preparing for our trip to Columbus ULE, including working on creating a better poster. Our previous one had the Quixote logo + the quote that attempts to somewhat define the Law of One in 1.7. That may not be the best quote to invite the casual expo attendee to investigate further, so we looked at other candidates from the Law of One material, scanning a 54-page document that contains a selection of gems from the books. (The same collection we use for the posts to L/L's Facebook page.) It's difficult to pluck a quote from the Law of One that has immediate universal appeal. The language is jargon-heavy and tends to require backstory or context for comprehension.
Also gathered fliers, signs, and supplies for our booth, getting everything in order.
Continued Q'uo digitization.
Daily social media sharing.
Retrieved mail from the PO Box
Spent some of the morning working with Trish who made a trip to the ER with a return of the same symptoms that dogged her before the wedding.
Processed and shipped a book order
Caught up on the ever great emails of Terry H., including looking into two errors he's located in the transcripts.
Set up a system for Jochen's quarterly payments and began tackling his detail-oriented email regarding the development of his German publishing house. He has set something into motion which is attracting attention and help from other service-oriented seekers, including those who want to assist with seminars. He's also decided to hire a professional proofreader to proof his German translation of the Lo1. (This is something we'd love to do for every translation.) So exciting to see things begin to gain momentum.
For our evening of television viewing we watched a couple episodes of NCIS and for our protocol we listened to the Classic Rock & Roll station. It was a good night for rock & roll and there was even a little dancing that went on. I read to Carla from Destiny of Souls again and tonight we learned more about how people who commit suicide make commitments to return quickly to Earth life in order to find other choices in response to difficult incarnational catalyst. The information in this book is like reading a letter from home. It just sounds and feels so right on target. 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 Carla's dressing. She also put silver nitrate on her wound for the first time in about three weeks. We had stopped the silver nitrate before the surgery but now that the surgery has been postponed we are going to use it for the next few weeks. Carla's appetite improved a little today, probably aided by Papa John's pizza for dinner.
Austin and Gary joined Carla and me for Blog Talk Radio after lunch where we talked about the value of coincidences, the value of wealth vs. poverty in an incarnation, and the possibility of time travel.
I mulched the leaves in the front and side yards this afternoon and then followed that up with planting another 200 tulips in the front yard. Now we move to the side yard for more tulip planting.
Gary and Austin were most productive in the L/L office today:
Joined Carla and Jim for this week's installment of "In the Now". In this great episode we discuss: - The magic of emotions. - Are wealth and leisure conducive to greater spiritual development? - What is time travel? - Can the Confederation see the future? Available for download or streaming here

Continued being a fly on a wall to a most unusual and stimulating discussion between Seph, Steve T., Matt P., Mike W., and Tobey regarding where punctuation ought to be placed in a particularly garbled answer from Ra in order to elicit the clearest meaning. The magnitude of intellect being exchanged is most impressive.

Realized we were out of stock of Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweetwater, then found out that it has been "retired" on Lulu and I never completed the project on CreateSpace. Attempted to fix the issue with CreateSpace which halted previous progress, submitted fixed files for review.
Reviewed all information for our upcoming trip this weekend to Columbus for the Universal Life Expo. Reserved a hotel room for said trip.
For our television this evening we watched some NCIS and Modern Family. I also read more of Destiny of Souls to Carla and this evening we heard about the creation of souls from the intelligent energy of the Creator and about the special entities that oversee this process much like midwives. We listened to the Classical Music Station for our protocol and then continued with our own musical energy exchange until it felt like we became notes in the music of the spheres that climbed higher and higher until we were truly out of sight. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.
