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.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. We are still trying to figure out how to get Carla back to some form of walking with assistance and/or doing her exercises in bed to continue our program of getting her stronger. But we are very hesitant to begin too soon or to go too fast as further injury is very possible. We did note that her need to use the bedside commode a number of times per day does give her some good exercise, so for the nonce we are in a holding pattern.
Gary joined us for lunch and talked about various L/L projects that he and Austin are undertaking in the L/L office. It is a very productive place these days with both of these very capable and diligent fellows doing a lot of good work.
I decided to mow the grass today and the yard looks great after getting the leaves that have begun coming down from the Sycamore and Tulip Poplar are gone as well as having the grass cut. Two more cuttings before Homecoming should do the trick. I did notice a Kentucky Coffee Tree growing next to the fire pit and it is already about six feet tall, and I have no idea where it came from. It used to be Kentucky's state tree, but was replaced by the Tulip Poplar some years ago as the Kentucky Coffee Tree is very rare and the Tulip Poplar is more common and a better representative of Kentucky.
Gary and Austin were quite busy again today in the L/L office:
Met with the bookkeeping for our weekly appointment. Enjoyed soup du jour and retired the bookkeeping for the week.
Enjoyed a good lunch with Jim and Carla, catching up on L/L activities
Assisted a Bring4th member and wrote to a Russian-speaking seeker with whom we've had previous correspondence. The Russian text on the home page of the archive website that had originally said something like, "For a Russian translation of the Law of One, click here", has become a line of question marks. We asked this particular seeker if he could give us a new Russian sentence to fix the error. We'd rather not rely on Google Translate.
Corresponded with Ian. Good to exchange electronically transmitted sound vibration complexes after long elapsing of time distortions.
Intensive discussion with moderators on questions pertaining to moderators
Corresponded with Pupak on the prospect of connecting a group of seekers in Findhorn to the upcoming Homecoming!
Took a most enjoyable walk Austin and I did. It was a heavenly day with ample sunshine and weather in the upper 70's. We saw six deer out and about! One at the lake's edge. Another group of four consisting of a mom and three young fawns.
Made small headway to attempt to organize the mismatch of filenames of the backup for the Interview Project. Going to take some work.
Continued Q'uo digitization.
Worked with Carla taking dictation
Responded to seeker email
Carla and I watched some NCIS for the evening. While we did our protocol we listened to the Classical Music station and we continued listening to it after we were done. 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. Her appetite is returning after a couple of days of heavy duty laxative and then no food. Her wound continues to drain heavily which means that there is good healing action happening there. We still haven’t gotten back to any walking or exercising as the extreme pain still bites her frequently. We hope to get back to walking and exercising with a slow introduction into both soon.
I did some puttering outside today with no real project for the first time this summer. Weeding and cutting the grass every other week is now the main work with small pop-up jobs appearing now and then.
Gary and Austin joined Carla and me after lunch for our weekly In the Now blog talk radio show. We talked about each person being a 360 degree entity with light and dark sides. We also covered balancing, the fate of pets who die, and book recommendations for seekers.
Gary and Austin were also their usual busy selves in the L/L office:·
Stopped by the PO Box and processed some prisoner mail, including numerous requests that seem to be seeded by one particular inmate to appreciates the material enough to encourage others to write in. Shipped the requested books along with a normal book order.
Congratulated Dnaiel on getting Book I in Portuguese to Edgard!
Put together material for a board meeting next week and wrote the group requesting the meeting
Dove into Carla's poetry in order to help her select poems for her Homecoming presentation.
Processed a registration for one Sephira Vox!
Couple moderator issues involving careful analysis, communication, and group edits of unified mod messages. As always Plenum and Austin were in top form and service-oriented.
Lots of catching up with Jochen, including learning that he's gotten the first ten sessions of the German Law of One to Tobey in a format that will ease Tobey's work in making translated Lo1 available at Lo1.info, and wrote to him about the backlog and slowness of editing/publishing in the current L/L system due to the ongoing construction of the new website, and some general metaphysical discussion, and he sent us a link to a German article about a crop circle that appeared in Germany that happened right next to the "earth radio station" wherefrom was broadcat the first pictures of the 1969 moon landing to German households: original article in German, and translation through Google Translate.
Ordered a new set of walkie talkies in anticipation of Homecoming.
Attempted to decipher and place the backup video files from the interview (failed) and transferred them to our network access storage.
Corresponded with Steve about Bring4th performance.
And noted that, as of today, Austin has been in Louisville one full year!
Our evening was full of NCIS and when it was time for the protocol we tuned into the Classic Rock & Roll station and grooved to the old favorites that always get our juices flowing. We paid a lightning visit to Mr. Kublai Khan’s pleasure dome to sample the scintillating tastes of the fabulous fare served there. 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 Carla's dressing as well as apply more silver nitrate on her wound. We gave her the report of what medical issues have come up in the last week and she noted them in her home visitation report. We always have a good time talking to Mona about her family and interests. We are lucky to have her as our wound care nurse.
Today was the fateful day that we have been dreading for over a month. Just before lunch we left for the endoscopy and colonoscopy tests that the gastroenterologist called for to determine the causes for Carla's anemia and blood in the stool. We had numerous challenges just getting there and at the last moment the doctor was called away for half an hour or so which meant that Carla had to lie flat upon a hard table with her back wound. But she was surrounded by very helpful doctors and nurses who did their best to relieve her pain with pillows and a little pain med. The tests showed no reason for any problems and the doctor doesn't see any need for more testing since Carla has had a life-long history of both conditions with no ill effects. It was so good to get this torture done and behind us.
The guys were their usual busy selves in the L/L office today:
Investigated what we thought was a mistake in the online store but turned out to be a generous donation. Thank you, donor!
Got together the raw ingredients and baked from scratch a guidelines policy for a new sub forum on Bring4th that will be dedicated to discussion of community relationships. Sent the draft to GLB and Plenum for review.
Tried, again, with more futility, to set up a remote connection between my PC and the office PC. Landed on the conclusion that Windows 8 is great except for the fact it hates scanners and it hates remote desktop connections. Decided the best course of action was to download Office on my PC as Open Office just doesn't cut it in some ways.
Discussed moderator issues with the moderators.
Worked on filling out a master spreadsheet for book finances and revenue.
Worked on editing and transferring Ra contact sessions to the other new Bring4th sub forum. 34 sessions to go!
For our evening we napped a little extra to recover from the day and then watched some NCIS. We did our protocol as the Classical Music Station entertained us and we finished our viewing day with the Colbert Report where John Batiste and his Stay Human band rocked the studio with such revival vigor that even Colbert began dancing and following the band around the studio and then out the door onto the streets of New York City. It was a rollicking good time. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Today was preparation for her endoscopy and colonoscopy tomorrow. That means that she had a lot of liquid laxative to drink and then she spent a goodly amount of time on the bedside commode getting clean. The process worked pretty quickly, probably aided by our weekend attempts at the same thing with a lesser kind of laxative.
Austin worked with Carla in the early afternoon taking dictation so she could catch up with her emails. While she was busy with Austin I went outside and did some small jobs that were waiting for when I just had a little time to attend to them.
Gary and Austin were quite busy in the L/L office today:
Sat in wonder that the past seven days even happened. Yesterday concluded the interview project, at least the part that involves sitting down with Jim and Carla to query them about their work, their organization, and their life. Seven consecutive days, 30 hours of filming give or take, around 400 hundred questions. And all in one take! No make-up, no re-do's, no props - just an organized conversation of Q&A.
Personally it was one of the greatest things I've ever done. Not great in scale - as it is of secondary/supplementary interest to L/L's primary work and will be watched/read by very few - but great in terms of depth of meaning for me, and fulfillment of a portion of my incarnational mission. Being with other open-hearted people in so intensive and focused a way: fully present, no distractions, no dissipation of energy, attention placed completely upon the other, all friction and barriers absent - that alone is a profoundly heart-opening experience into experience of the Creator. I left a few of the sessions, especially the final one, feeling in a mood that wanted to jubilantly embrace the world.
I wasn't sure that they would accept the project given its scope and the time/energy necessary to complete it, much less that, upon accepting, we'd be able to get through it. But everything seemed to come together perfectly and we moved forward question by question. I'm so excited by it all, especially that these two people (who have been the most significant influences upon my spiritual and adult life) can be shared with the world in a light that approaches something of the perspective I've been privileged to know. No, this isn't to glorify. It is not to direct attention to personality, but to the love shining through the eyes, the light in the wisdom of their reflections, the unity underlying the path they have walked, and the desire to serve motivating Carla and Jim's efforts to be as instruments for a particular vibration or wavelength of love and light, that known as the Confederation philosophy. It is good history, good background, good supplementary info, good probing of spiritual principles, good reminders of who we are and what we're all doing here, and astounding love. I am so happy with all of it. = ) Now onto the day of Austin and myself in the office:
Continued the process of creating the Ra Contact Sessions sub forum and discovered that the default thread sorting order can be set to thread title! Meaning it will appear in proper session sequence.
Began working on charting the growing ways L/L is offering its hardcopy books by organizing a master Excel spreadsheet.
Got a wild hare and embarked upon a reorganizing/cleaning project in one portion of the office.
Connected to the home server to back up the video from the interview project.
Dove into moderator discussion on a couple of fronts.
Spent some time catching up with the always humming and bustling Bring4th forums
Helped a seeker with website issues
Assisted Daniel with questions regarding the Portuguese translation of the Law of One.
Took dictation for Carla.
Processed and shipped book orders and donations.
Mailed out a backlog of donation letters.
Spent too long troubleshooting the problem that Windows 8 seems to have with scanners.
Responded to some seeker email.
Continued digitizing Q'uo and sharing via social media.
In the evening Carla had to repeat the laxative procedure and that assured us that she is as clean as a whistle. We enjoyed a block of NCIS and had to wait until nearly midnight to do our protocol so we could be sure that she was done with the commode. We finished 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. Today King David outdid himself. He had the husband of a woman he coveted sent off to battle and ordered his superior to put him on the front lines where he would be killed. When he was killed David took the man's wife for his own. I think that makes an even dozen wives for David.
Carla's wound continues to look good and her pain level from the wound has backed off ever so slightly, just enough to give us hope. She also began taking an emergency pack of prednisone that Dr. Hamad prescribed for the pain.
Gary and Ken came over in the afternoon for the last two interviews of this monumental project. Carla and I were both interviewed for our biographical information, so we got to talk about our childhoods, parents, and getting good grades in school. There are now about 30 hours of interviews and there is a mountain of information that perhaps the next generation of seekers will be interested in after Carla and I have passed on.
We celebrated the completion of this project with a takeout dinner from Ramsi's on the World restaurant which Gary and Ken were kind enough to get and bring back to us. We enjoyed the food and the conversation late into the evening. Carla and I did get our protocol in before it got too late and 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 wound had good bleeding and general health this morning. We are continuing to keep Carla still to help with the intense pain in her wound. Dr. Hamad prescribed a prednisone pack that she hopes will also help with the pain. Carla's constipation continues but will change Monday when she takes the special laxative drink that is prescribed before a colonoscopy, which she will have Tuesday, along with an endoscopy.
Gary and Ken came over in the afternoon for two more interview sessions on the Art of Channeling and the biography for Don Elkins. We have about 24 hours of interview done by now with one more day to go.
Before the interviews got going today I was able to finish the weeding of the flower beds. Rain is predicted for tonight and tomorrow, so when that is over I will need to spray the deer repellant on the flowers again.
Our evening was happily comfortable with our NCIS and Modern Family blocks of shows. We finished our protocol and then watched Front and Center which had Christina Perri and her band on. She has a lovely voice and very sensitive lyrics to her songs. She obviously loves entertaining and is very good at it. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Today I believe that King David passed a milestone in the Old Testament. He and his army killed their 100,000th enemy. The Lord God of Israel gave all his enemies into his hands and he happily killed them, and the ones that he didn't kill he put into slavery to serve him for the rest of their lives. Who couldn't love this guy and his god?!
Carla had a really rough morning and spent all her time looking for a "sweet spot", a position in which she could rest without sharp, shooting pain coming from her wound. We comfort ourselves in the knowledge that this means her wound is quite alive and capable of healing.
Gary and Ken joined us in the afternoon for two more interview sessions where we talked about "Living the Law of One" and the various angles from which that topic can be approached. Before and in between sessions I went outside and began the weeding of the flower beds. I got half done with an eye to finishing tomorrow.
Our evening was filled with television and NCIS, Modern Family, and on WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour there was the celebration of the ukulele. We had our own celebration and partied way past closing time at the Pleasure Dome in Xanadu. 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 wound has good bleeding in tiny areas all over the wound which is a very good sign because "if it ain't bleeding, it ain't healing" is the saying here. We washed her hair this morning to get her ready for more interviews this afternoon, and we put a new dress on that was made for her by a good friend.
Gary and Ken joined us for two afternoon interview sessions which went very well as we talked about the history and future of L/L Research and Gary's role as the initiator of new ideas as to how to make the Law of One information available to people who might be interested in it.
In between the two interview sessions and before and after I went outside and set the sprinkler at various locations around the yard since we are once again getting very dry. I also sprayed the flowers with deer repellant since the watering had washed off the old repellant. The surprise lilies are coming up all over the yard and are gorgeous.
Gary and Austin also had a big work day in the L/L office:
Our bullet points are not legion today but believe you me, the work was substantial:
A most fruitful day for the interview project! We tackled the four sections in the L/L Biography parent section, moving from Ra Contact to Archive Website, Archive Website to Community, Community to Bring4th, and Bring4th to Present. I'm really grateful to Carla and Jim for embracing this project.
Though I'm getting really pooped (one wouldn't think an interview would require much energy but there's something that's fairly intensive about it, love-filled though the whole experience is), and though I've enjoyed each and every session, today was most stellar. Ken has done absolutely incredible filming of the gardens as well, both yesterday and today. He's in fact out there working his magic now as I put this short report together.
Knocked out the weekly bookkeeping in between, and found a moment to help out a neighbor who called with a request for an able-bodied entity, of which I am.
Processed online store stuff and shared via social media.
Continued Q'uo digitization.
Austin spent almost all day working on the new sub-forum in the StrictlyLaw of One. Getting the container set up, creating a special account to begin seeding the threads, and formatting the sessions appropriately.
We relaxed into our evening after what felt like a very long and busy day. We watched our usual favorites of NCIS and Modern Family. Our protocol was accompanied by the Classical Music Station, and we finished 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. 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.
