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 my activities, this is the place to do that. Of course, sometimes these days (May 2012) it is Jim who writes the daily entry, so I should say, OUR activities! We wish you blessings, light and love! Carla L. Rueckert-McCarty and Jim McCarty.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She did her two half laps and off-loading today. We give her Sunday off from the exercises. We have gotten rid of the swelling in her legs and feet with the water pills, so Dr. Hamad suggested that we use the water pills in the future only as needed. Carla will see a pulmonary specialist in a few weeks to further investigate the actual cause of the swelling.
From 1 to 3 pm this afternoon Carla was on the radio with Wynn F. talking about spiritual principles and then sending healing light and love to various locations on the planet where there have been disasters of one kind or another. While Carla was on the radio I took a walk around the neighborhood and when I got back I did a little cleaning in our room to get things more in order in a couple of places where the things overpowered the space available.
This evening we held our first silent meditation in three years. Gary and Austin attended and we had a good session with the round robin talking about our week followed by a 20 minute silent meditation. We hope to keep up with these silent meditations for a couple of months and see how they go before we open the meditations up to the public. We will have to give Carla some time in her living room chair on a regular basis as a kind of exercise so we will be able to hold the meditations there instead of in our bedroom when we go public.
The other big news for the evening, if you are from Nebraska, is that Nebraska’s basketball team continued its very unexpected success in the Big Ten by beating #9 Wisconsin for their 11th conference victory and very likely their ticket into the NCAA Tournament which starts in another week. It’s been 18 years since Nebraska has been in that tournament! I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She walked two half laps with her two off-loadings, and she did her exercises with a good deal of vigor today. She had enough energy at the end of the morning’s work to put in another hour or so in tax prep work.
For the afternoon we watched the University of Louisville’s basketball team play their last home game of the regular season and before today’s game they honored the four seniors who are graduating with the most wins in school history, 115, and with two trips to the Final Four, and one national championship and counting. They all look ready for a deep run into March Madness.
For our evening’s entertainment we watched a couple episodes of NCIS, played a little Trivial Pursuit, and then in the later portion of the evening we watched a 1992 concert in recognition of Bob Dylan’s 30 years of making albums. Many famous artists covered a variety of Dylan’s songs. KET was using this program to help raise money for its spring fund drive. And just before we went to bed we moved our clocks one hour ahead and said good-bye to that hour of sleep that we won’t get back until next November. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She walked half a lap and did one off-loading. We were trying to take it a little easy on her physically today because for lunch she hosted a galaround which meant that she was going to get to spend the afternoon with three of her girl friends who come by every few months for food, conversation, and lots of laughs. It was a rousing success with everyone sharing stories and company.
While the galaround was going on I went off to Dr. Hamad, our family doctor, who wanted to follow up on my recent physical exam. She is mostly pleased with all my lab numbers except for high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
For our evening we started off with a couple of recorded episodes of NCIS and then began watching the Bourne Supremacy, one of our favorite action movies of all time. Then we listened to some classic rock and roll and went that classic route once again until we could go no more. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She walked her two half laps, did her off-loading, and did her exercises. The application of the silver nitrate by Mona yesterday certainly did result in a lot more drainage and the top layer of the wound seems to have turned grey and is peeling off. That is apparently according to the plan to stimulate more healing in the wound.
Carla had a Skype interview with Denise W. today that went very well. Both women seem to take a particular delight in being of service to others and they work very well together. After Denise does the editing of the interview she will post an article on the Huffington Post as another means of accomplishing this service of helping people get started on the spiritual journey.
Gary and Austin were their usual busy selves in the L/L office:
·Stopped the PO Box this morning. Picked up the first prisoner letters to review and send to Azeem, but got waylaid today before sending.
·Successfully completed the week’s bookkeeping, knocking out a monthly PayPal report (L/L earned $1,600 in sales for the whole month of February), but put off the task of trying to figure out how to process Amazon Kindle sales for other regions around the world. The way Amazon has set it up, they report sales by particular store, for instance, Germany, Japan, UK, etc., and all in the local currencies. For reasons I won’t go into now, that is a major bookkeeping headache, even though L/L is just selling *a* book or two in non-English speaking regions.
·Austin and I both corresponded with Denise, and Austin worked directly with Carla setting up a new microphone, in order to help get Carla ready for Denise’s interview with her at 2:00 PM.
·Called Tammi at Universal Life Expo, completed an application, and sent it off to register a booth for L/L Research this May! The first time we’ve been represented at such a thing. (Carla and Jim have hosted a booth at the International UFO Conference before, but never a general metaphysical fair.)
·Took dictation from Carla and processed and shipped book orders.
·Investigated alternate TV/Mobile plans for J&C McC.
·Corresponded with Beatriz on questions regarding the healing workshop coming up.
·Spent some time researching the Magento store.
·Dealt with"mod stuff" on an otherwise pleasant, totally, completely, excellently drama-free day…
Our evening was full of NCIS episodes that we had recorded from earlier in the week. There was the occasional nap and of course we had to play with our kitty cats when they came around. A kitty cat purr is their way of saying, “I looooooooooovvvvvvvveeeeeeee yyyyyyooooooouuuuuu”. We finished our 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. She used silver nitrate on Carla’s wound for the first time this morning. It is supposed to remove the top layer of slough on the wound and kick it into higher healing gear. It also temporarily makes the wound look grey and give off more drainage. She recommended that we stay with one dressing change per day.
We had lunch with Gary and Austin today and talked about some L/L business as well as the nature of language to change over time. After lunch Carla talked to Barbara B., a dear friend from Michigan with whom Carla channeled the Aaron/Q’uo Dialogues. I went for another shorter, slower walk while she talked to Barbara and while she was dictating emails to Austin.
Gary and Austin were very busy in the L/L office today:
Enjoyed a good lunch with Jim and Carla
Continued digitizing Q'uo
Incorporated Carla's edits for the mission statement, and in the process overhauled a good ten percent of it, bringing it closer to the imperfect perfection it must be. Also, investigated the rule against the split infinitive in response to one of Carla's edits, learning that split infinitive's, by most standards save for those who subscribe to the "myth" of their prohibition, are acceptable. Personally, I think the adverb is often well placed between the "to" and the "verb", and so do the writers of Star Trek it seems: "To boldly go where no one has gone before."
Enjoyed a good walk with Austin and got a couple rides from him up to the local shop. My car's muffler broke. Turning the engine over emitted a short but loud burst of "VROOM!", and a noisy engine everywhere I drove. So the first ride from Austin was to pick it up from muffler shop A to transport it to muffler shop B. The first one wanted over $450 to replace it! And then the second ride to pick it up from muffler shop B.
Began working with L/L's accountant for the annual tax filing.
Sent Jochen an edit from Carla and Jim for his "25 Principles" cards.
Touched up the draft material for the brochure and got it to Kristin, a volunteer who initiated an offer to help produce a brochure for L/L Research, an item she is skilled in making.
Updated keyboard software direct from the owner who attempted resolving an issue I was having with it months ago after installing Windows 7. It didn't work but I thanked him nonetheless for the kindness.
Offered my thoughts on a couple good questions Terry Hsu had regarding candidates for footnotes in the "Scholar's".
Corresponded with Renee Austin did, finished downloading the Youtube videos he was previously unable to download.
Emailed CreateSpace about picking up our books locally.
Corresponded with Denise regarding the interview with Carla tomorrow.
Took dictation from Carla.
Our evening television viewing was a salad of NCIS, Modern Family, and Intelligence. Carla said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She walked half a lap and did two off-loadings plus her exercises. About mid-morning we got a call from her rheumatologist who did lab tests on Carla’s blood while she was getting her Orencia infusion last Friday, and they found that her kidney functions were abnormal. They will call Carla’s family doctor who will schedule an appointment with the appropriate specialist. The abnormal kidney function could well be responsible for the swelling in Carla’s lower legs and feet.
We did the Blog Talk Radio Show with Gary and Austin and the main topic was the creative Love of the Logos versus the interpersonal love that we feel when we open our green-ray chakra. It was a good show with lots of heart!
Bethany came after the show and did Carla’s nails in a lovely and exquisite two-tone red to cheer us all up on this very snowy day. Meanwhile I went off to our family doctor to leave a little blood for lab tests and a Friday conversation with said doctor.
Gary and Austin reported another busy day in the L/L office:
Processed and shipped book orders.
Joined Rueckert and McCarty for a round of doing our best to respond to seeker question in an episode of "In the Now - Q&A with Carla and Crew". In this episode, we discuss: -The mystery, unknowing, and darkness of spirit, and those things which might distract from the spiritual path. - The difference between "personal love" and Love as the "great activator" as described in Ra's cosmogony. - The possibility of continued channeling from L/L Research. Available for streaming or download here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/llresearch/2014/03/04/20140304-in-the-now--qa-with-carla-and-crew
Another attempt at cleaning up a Brother printer that operates well but is producing messy paper. Austin tried everything to clean the drum and the toner cartridge using the troubleshooting page and all that failing, the next suggestion is to replace the toner or drum. Not a good suggestion because we've already done that and that stuff is price-ey.
Giddyup 409. Did some office cleaning.
Received word back from ZeeMaps, learning how to fix the links in the notification emails and that a feature really helpful for the map admin to assist member's restore access to their pins will return.
Identified some items in need of editing on the websites and undertook said editing.
Responded to seeker email, responded to Jochen on matters of the German Law of One, and processed Archetypes Workshops registrations. Welcome Michelle and Maria! Especially stoked that one who was unable to make it to Homecoming last year will finally make the journey south after a long, tough season of catalyst. : )
We got to watch the new episodes of both NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles. We continued on our theme from last night with more classic rock and roll until we could rock no more. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

arla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She walked two half laps on her two off-loadings, and she did her exercises. The swelling on her lower legs and feet has gone down to almost normal, with the help of water pills. Her appetite was good and, in general, it was a very good day.
I took a slower, shorter walk around the neighborhood and was so grateful that we escaped the ice storm and that our trees and bushes are continuing to recover from the first ice storm three weeks ago. The cold temperatures are forecast to leave as we warm into the ‘50s this weekend. We may actually have a spring this year yet.
Gary and Austin reported a good work day in the L/L office:
Processed and shipped book orders and did the social media outreach, including sharing the latest Law of One excerpt.
Before last week ended, ordered some professional (though inexpensive) video and audio editing software for the interview Carla did with Denise whose audio and video feeds are not exactly synced, and when it arrived:
Began work editing Carla's interview with Denise. Lots of work for Austin setting up the software, orienting himself and, configuring the video that Denise sent be edited.
Put in some effort on a security breach of a particular account that has since been repaired and measures taken that it shan't happen again.
Lost another round to the youtube/google+/gmail tangle in our attempt to get the account over to L/L's gmail account, but while Google may have won this battle, they will not win the war. We will fight on... in another two weeks after we've again enjoyed googe's mandatory waiting period. Grrrr.
Did work on the Scholar's Edition.
Caught up with Steve E. on matters of the new website, ranging from upgraded PHP coding to integrating new apps into the forum app to timelines to how I really, really understand all the technical stuff Steve talks about. (By that I mean I don't understand. But he has a way of using the sticks and rocks, and nice analogies, that break it down for me.)
Received and perused the proof copy of Light/Lines and did some further research into new print-on-demand to see if orders can be picked up locally in order to save on shipping.
Responded to bunches of seeker email
Contacted Renee regarding youtube videos we can't download with other questions about her work.
Emailed Seph about a friend interested in attending the Archetypes workshop who will have to miss the first portion.
Continued digitizing Q'uo and enjoyed a lovely piece of mystic poetry from one EB.
Finalized an official mission statement for L/L Research before producing a lengthy preamble for, and sending it to, Carla and Jim so that they can employ their considerable powers of consciousness to make sure it meets or exceeds everything they could want in a mission statement. Mostly it is a document that outlines three steps: Step 1: Collect underpants Step 2: ? Step 3: Profit* We're just not sure about Step 2. (*Lifted from South Park.)
Our evening was composed of NCIS Los Angeles, more follow-up shows on the Oscars, and a little soft rock on the music channel. We continued the soft rocking and rolling into the night with the Colbert Report marking the end of our viewing pleasure. 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 continues to look good and it is in the process of healing very slowly. She did half a lap today plus two off-loadings and her exercises. The early morning is when the upset stomach seems to be more active with improvement throughout the rest of the day.
After lunch Carla was on Wynn F.’s radio program and they continued their healing efforts for geographical areas of the world that have recently suffered weather disasters. Today they included the 14 state swath of the United States that is the path of Winter Storm Titan and that included all of Kentucky. But we got lucky and did not get the forecast ice on trees that would have caused massive power outages. The ice went north and south of us and we were lucky to be in an area that just got sleet and snow.
Carla and I spent our evening watching the lead up programs to the Oscars and then the Oscars program itself. It was fun to see all of our favorite movie stars behaving like jubilant children at Christmas. The clothes, the music, the performances, and, of course, Ellen DeGeneres proving once again to be the perfect host for all the pageantry. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She did her half lap, her exercises, and off-loading today and had a fairly good appetite. She felt well enough to put in two tax prep sessions, documenting all the many improvements to our house and garage that we made last year. I am sure that we are the equivalent of a tax smorgasbord with all the many deductions and details for our tax guy.
I took a slower and shorter walk around the neighborhood today. For the last few days I have been walking fast and far for the exercise, but my arthritic right hip starting popping in and out of joint yesterday so I will cut back to what I can do without injury. I was also able to find the spout floating in the ice in the side fish pond and reattached it so that it will stay in place and shoot the right amount of water into the air and not out of the pond.
We watched a little losing Louisville basketball in the afternoon and some NCIS and Modern Family in the evening. For our final feature in the day’s viewing we watched a couple of musical presentations: Joe Bonamassa in concert in London and Booker T. (of the old MG’s) in concert in Austin, TX. We heard the blues with a little rock and rhythm flavor. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and got her ready for her day. She did her half lap walk and one off-loading before we had lunch and then went to her rheumatologist’s office for an infusion of Orencia. Her rheumatologist wants to get her off of prednisone because it can cause problems in some patients after taking it for a long time. Orencia is a potential replacement drug and is administered to Carla through an infusion through her port. It took over an hour for the process to be completed and as a treat we went to the Cheese Cake Factory afterward for a mid-afternoon snack of crab bites, which were delicious.
When we got home Carla was pretty much wiped out from the effort of going out, so a serious nap was in order. I noticed that the spout on the side fish pond’s fountain had come off again and water was shooting everywhere. I will have to fix that tomorrow.
We watched a couple episodes of NCIS and then we decided to play another game of Trivial Pursuit. It’s a great game for conversation and just hanging out plus it’s a great way to keep sleepy heads awake. After the game we decided to make this a day with two dates and we had more fun on the second one than the first. WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour came on at midnight and we thoroughly enjoyed the Indigo Girls who have been singing beautiful music for a quarter of a century as independent artists. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.
