I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 103.4-.5:

Questioner: The instrument asks the question why she lost her joy in the recent past? Would Ra comment, please?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument made a free-will decision not to address the physical catalyst causing great pain by means of the allopathically prescribed chemical compound which the instrument was sure would be efficacious due to its reliance upon the suggestions of Ra. Thus the catalyst was given in a more complete form. The outer service to others became nearly impossible, causing the entity to experience once again the choice of the martyr; that is, to put value in a fatal action and die or to put value on consciousness of the creation and of the One Creator and, thereby, live. The instrument, through will, chose the latter path. However, the mind and mental/emotional distortions did not give the support to this decision necessary to maintain a state of unity which this entity normally experiences and has experienced since its incarnation’s beginnings.

Since this catalyst has been accepted, the work begun to remove distortions blocking the indigo ray might well be continued apace.

Questioner: Could Ra recommend work appropriate for removing indigo-ray blockage?

Ra: I am Ra. We cannot recommend for the general situation for in each case the distortional vortex is unique. In this particular nexus, the more appropriate working is in the mental and mental/emotional powers of analysis and observation. When the strongest and least distorted complex is set in support, then the less strong portions of the complex shall be strengthened. This entity has long worked with this catalyst. However, this is the first occasion wherein the drugs to dull the pain that sharpens the catalyst have been refused.”

In the first question Don asked Ra why Carla felt that she had lost her joy in the previous few weeks. Ra said that Carla had made a decision not to use the drugs Ra had suggested to treat the great cramping pain that she had in the area of her stomach and digestive tract that Ra described as acidic and which was causing ulcers in that region. Ra had earlier described this situation as relating to the yellow-ray energy center which manifested as pain and cramping because Carla had momentarily become upset with me when I asked for an open relationship. She was able to heal the feeling of being upset fairly quickly, but it provided a target of target of opportunity for our negative friend to intensify the pain and suffering for Carla. This pain made it nearly impossible for her to be of service to others, and this caused her to lose her joy. If she had not healed the feeling of being upset with me when I asked for an open relationship she would have been “putting value on a fatal action” which could have caused her death. Instead she healed the feeling of being upset and “put value on consciousness of the creation and of the One Creator and, thereby, live.” However, Ra suggested that Carla had not given enough mental and emotional support to this decision, so she was not able to maintain the state of unity that was normal for her. Ra completed their answer by saying that now it was up to Carla to use the full impact of the catalyst I provided for her by seeking to remove the blockage of the indigo ray. Ra had previously mentioned this blockage as Carla’s feeling of unworthiness as Ra detailed in 12.31:

Questioner: Is there a best way for these entities to heal themselves of their physical ailments?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last complete question of this time/space.

The self-healing distortion is effected through realization of the intelligent infinity resting within. This is blocked in some way in those who are not perfectly balanced in bodily complexes. The blockage varies from entity to entity. It requires the conscious awareness of the spiritual nature of reality, if you will, and the corresponding pourings of this reality into the individual mind/body/spirit complex for healing to take place.

We will use this instrument as example. The portions of its ailment, as you call this distortion complex, that can be perfected in balance are due primarily to a blockage of the indigo-ray or pineal energy center. This center receives the intelligent energy from all sources lawful within the one Creation; that is, lawful in this third-density distortion or illusion. If there is no blockage, these energies pour or stream down into the mind/body/spirit complex perfecting moment by moment the individual’s body complex.

This instrument also experiences some distortion of the green-ray energy center which you may call the heart center. It is overly open due to an intensive desire distortion on the part of this mind/body/spirit complex towards service to others, or as you may call it, universal love. This entity, therefore, spends itself without regard to its reserves of mind/body/spirit complex distortion in regard to what you call strength or energy. This distortion is primarily due to the blockage of the indigo ray. As we have said before, the misapprehension distortion of the instrument responsible for this blockage is the basic orientation towards a belief in unworthiness. The unworthiness distortion blocks the free flow of intelligent energy.

In the second question Don asked Ra if they could recommend a way in which Carla could remove her indigo-ray blockage. Ra recommended that Carla use her “mental and mental/emotional powers of analysis and observation”. I believe that Ra is suggesting that Carla take an objective look at her situation from a mental position and from an emotional position. Her mental powers of analysis might reveal to her how maintaining a state of unity was the best path to follow rather than the hurt emotional feelings she first felt when I asked for an open relationship. Then Ra continued their answer by saying that “When the strongest and least distorted complex is set in support, then the less strong portions of the complex shall be strengthened.” Here I believe that Ra was saying that if Carla focused on her strength of mental analysis in this situation then her weaker feeling of emotional pain would be strengthened. Ra completed their answer by saying that Carla had worked for a long time in her life with the feeling of being unworthy, and now that she had refused to take the drugs that would dull the pain she would need to work with this enhanced catalyst. A couple of questions later, in 103.8, Don asked again what Carla could do to improve her situation, and Ra linked her present feeling of unworthiness to Carla’s recent decision to give up buying clothes for herself as she felt it was an addiction to love clothes so much:

Questioner: I didn’t mean to cover previously covered material. I meant to add any of this to specifically focus on at this time, the best possible thing that we or the instrument could do to improve these energies, the salient activity.

Ra: I am Ra. Before responding we ask your vigilance during pain flares as the channel is acceptable but is being distorted periodically by the severe physical distortions of the yellow-ray, chemical body of the instrument.

Those salient items for the support group are praise and thanksgiving in harmony. These the group has accomplished with such a degree of acceptability that we cavil not at the harmony of the group.

As to the instrument, the journey from worth in action to worth in esse is arduous. The entity has denied itself in order to be free from that which it calls addiction. This sort of martyrdom, and here we speak of the small but symbolically great sacrifice of the clothing, causes the entity to frame a selfhood in poorness which feeds unworthiness unless the poverty is seen to be true richness. In other words, good works for the wrong reasons cause confusion and distortion. We encourage the instrument to value itself and to see that its true requirements are valued by the self. We suggest contemplation of true richness of being.

This morning I worked on Chapter 5 of Living the Law of One 102: The Outer Work. It was a short chapter about how we apply our spiritual principles in the work place. I finished my first run through and feel that I was able to add a few thoughts that enhanced the nature of work for the seeker of truth. Then I went outside and watered most of the flowers in the back yard as it has been about a week since our last rain.

This afternoon I went back to Dana’s Crystal corner where I placed 8 more solar-powered lanterns yesterday afternoon. Last night I took a picture of the area and it showed that there were too many new lanterns and old lanterns that I didn’t know still worked located in one area. So this afternoon I spread them out so that they are more evenly spaced. I will go back out tonight and see if they are more clearly in a pyramid shape. Then I went up to The Home Depot and bought a tray for an asparagus plant that I hope to give away and also bought six cone flowers that I planted in my Ruins Mound were I already had a few cone flowers.

Come, Holy Spirit

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of creative love.

Your generation shall pass away, just as this morning shall pass away into evening and all the works of your hands and the thoughts of your minds shall seem as shadows.

Gazing at one’s day and one’s life in terms of the losses involved is a logical and understandable method of dealing with the accidents of experience. Yet in each cell of your body lies a consciousness of love, joy and peace, a consciousness which can speak only mutely and only when asked for.

It is the consciousness of the Holy Spirit, as you would call us, for we are closer to you than you can imagine and instantaneously ready to flood the consciousness with comfort and healing. You have but to ask, truly wishing to release the sense of loss that experience sometimes brings; truly being willing to yield your sorrows, let go of bitterness and forgive iniquity.

This instrument’s favorite musician, Johann Sebastian Bach, has expressed the musical thought, “Komm Heilige Geist.” This simple prayer, “Come, Holy Spirit,” is that which opens the door to that peace in which we leave you now and ever; the perfect peace that lies forever beyond the understanding but is more real than any loss. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 102.21-.22:

Questioner: Obviously we would very much like to not get to the point of surgery, and the only other alternative that comes to mind other than the diet and the instrument’s personal mental work is healing through a healer, and I would like Ra’s recommendation with respect to a non-allopathic type healer and any recommendations Ra could make for either Jim or myself to act in that capacity or anyone else Ra could recommend so that we wouldn’t have to go through this surgical operation if it seems to become necessary and if we could start working on one of these other approaches right away I think it might be highly recommended. Would Ra comment on that, please?

Ra: I am Ra. We salute the opening of compassion circuitry in the questioner but note that that which is being experienced by this group is being experienced within an healing atmosphere. The healing hands of each have limited use when the distortion has so many metaphysical layers and mixtures. Therefore, look not to a healing but to the joy of companionship, for each is strong and has its feet set upon the way. The moon casts its shadows. What shall you see? Link hands and walk towards the sun. In this instance this is the greatest healing. For the physical vehicle we can suggest far less than you had hoped.

Questioner: I’ll just ask then if there’s anything we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. All is well. Find love and thanksgiving together, and each shall support each. The alignments are conscientious.

We are known to you as Ra. We leave you in the love and in the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, then, merry and glad in His power and peace. Adonai.”

In this question Don is continuing to ask Ra about what could be done—short of surgery—to relieve Carla’s intense pain from the stomach spasms. Don was rather insistent about avoiding surgery and finding another way to help Carla. So Ra complimented Don on opening his heart, which Don had inadvertently closed at age 26 when he made the conscious decision to become a neutral observer in this world.  He felt that most people let themselves be controlled by their positive and negative emotions. It was Don’s belief that this resulted in peoples’ lives being lived as if they were on an out-of-control ride on a roller coaster. So his great concern for Carla was noteworthy here, and, according to Ra’s response, constituted the opening of his “compassion circuity.” However, it was always totally clear to Carla that Don loved her completely even thought he hardly ever said so.

Then Ra observed that Cala’s painful stomach condition was being experience in a loving atmosphere. The harmony between the three of us was palpable and certainly was an aid to comfort and healing as Ra mentioned in 62.26:

Questioner: Have I missed anything now that we can do at all to aid the instrument during, before, or after a session or at any time?

Ra: I am Ra. The love and devotion of this group misses nothing. Be at peace. There is some toll for this work. This instrument embraces this or we could not speak. Rest then in that peace and love and do as you will, as you wish, as you feel. Let there be an end to worry when this is accomplished. The great healer of distortions is love.

Ra continued their answer by saying that since there were so many aspects to Carla’s painful situation it would be hard for any healer to address them all. In 94.3, Ra gave a detailed description of Carla’s complex condition that existed even before the stomach spasming problems was added:

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do that we are not doing to remedy this situation so that the instrument does not experience this pain, or as much of it?

Ra: I am Ra. There is little that can be done due to a complex of pre-existing distortions. The distortions are triple in the source.

There is the, shall we say, less than adequate work of your chirurgeons which allows for various distortions in the left wrist area.

There is the distortion called systemic lupus erythematosus which causes the musculature of the lower left and right arms to allow for distortions in the normal, shall we say, configuration of both.

Lastly, there is the nerve damage, more especially to the left, but in both appendages from the thoracic outlet.

So, realizing that there was little in the way of practical suggestions that they could make to give healing and comfort to Carla, Ra’s last suggestion was that we should look to the “joy of companionship” that we shared with each other. No matter how dark the moon might be, they said, we should link our hands together and walk towards the sun which is reminiscent of Ra’s description of the Experience of the Spirit in 80.15:

The Experience of the Spirit, that which you have called the Moon, is then, by far, the more manifest of influences upon the polarity of the adept. Even the most unhappy of experiences, shall we say, which seem to occur in the Catalyst of the adept, seen from the viewpoint of the spirit, may, with the discrimination possible in shadow, be worked with until light equaling the light of brightest noon descends upon the adept and positive or service-to-others illumination has occurred.

In response to Don’s question about how we could improve the contact Ra said: “The alignments are conscientious” which suggests to me that our questions concerning how to aid Carla in dealing with her various difficulties was most appropriate and appreciated by Carla and by Ra. I am fascinated by the way Ra signed off: “We are known to you as Ra.” This was the only session that they ever signed off in a way that would suggest that possibly they were known as Ra only to us on this planet. They had mentioned that various members of the Council of Saturn did not have names in 7.9:

The members of the Council are representatives from the Confederation and from those vibratory levels of your inner planes bearing responsibility for your third density. The names are not important because there are no names. Your mind/body/spirit complexes request names and so, in many cases, the vibratory sound complexes which are consonant with the vibratory distortions of each entity are used. However, the name concept is not part of the Council. If names are requested, we will attempt them. However, not all have chosen names.

This morning I began working on Chapter 5 of Living the Law of One 102: The Outer Work. Once again my goal is to add any material to 102 that might make it more understandable and useable for readers. I started with Chapter 5 because Austin and Gary have edited through Chapter 3 and will be working on Chapter Four when they return from Europe and the Prague Gatherings. In the last part of the morning I began watering flowers in the front, side, and back yards since it has been nearly a week since we have gotten any rain.

This afternoon I added 8 more solar-powered lanterns to Dana’s Crystal Corner. I had noticed earlier this summer that about half of the 16 solar-powered lanterns were no longer working. Tonight I will go outside and see if I put the new ones in the proper locations that I determined last night before going to bed.

Those Born Of The Spirit

I am the spirit who comes with quiet feet, walking in perfect love, sacrificing in perfect peace, showing perfect compassion. I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

May the love of Christ come upon you today as a sword and as a peace, excising from you that little self, opening the way for your true and whole creation. For those born of the spirit, be they gathered together or scattered throughout your societies, may indeed renew the face of the Earth.

Let that consciousness be upon you that is love, rejoicing in pain and giving up those things which the spirit within you tells you that you no longer need.

May you lose your guilt and anger and be lit by the fire and the truth of love and compassion, that you may go forth in activity and yet with a heart full of peace to do the work of Jesus Christ in the world today.

We leave you, encouraging you, as always, in the perfect peace of Jesus the Christ, now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density.

May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 102.19-.20:

Questioner: You mentioned the possibility of surgery. What would be the surgery to be done, specifically?

Ra: I am Ra. The body cannot long bear the extreme acidity which is the environment of such spasms and will develop the holes or ulcerations which then do appear upon the allopathic testings and suggest to the chirurgeon that which is to be excised.

Questioner: In other words, the removal of ulcers. Would this be a duodenic ulcer? Would this be the type of operation that you would perform for a duodenic ulcer?

Ra: I am Ra. If the ulceration occurs, it shall be past the jejunum, and most likely include the ileum and upper portions of the transverse colon.

May we ask for one more query of normal length as this entity, though filled with enough transferred energy, has the most fragile framework through which we may channel this and our energies.”

In this question Don asked Ra what kind of surgery Ra had earlier referred to as a possible solution to the spasming within most of Carla’s internal organs. Apparently this condition of spasming comes about when there is a great deal of acid within the body. In Carla’s case, Ra said that this acidic condition created holes, or ulcers, which could be confirmed by certain medical tests.

So Don’s second question asked if this surgery would be for a “duodenic” ulcer, and Ra replied that any surgery would involve the ileum and the transverse colon. This is what an internet search said about a “duodenic ulcer”:

A Duodenal Ulcer refers to under the broad category of stomach ulcers. Although the ulcer develops in the intestine just outside the stomach, it is close enough in nature and symptoms to stomach ulcers to share the name. Sometimes clinics also refer to this type of ulcer as a peptic ulcer. It is one of the more common medical problems since some researchers claim you have a ten percent chance of developing a stomach ulcer. People over the age of sixty are most at risk of getting such an ulcer and men are at the most risk.”

Carla did have surgery in February of 1992 in which 7 inches of her transverse colon were removed. The surgeon was a little surprised to find a few grains of rice were seemingly attached to one of the ulcerations on the portion of the transverse colon that he removed. He said that he would have expected them to be floating freely around the outside of the transverse colon, but they seemed almost magnetically attracted to the ulcer.

Then Ra finished their answer by asking for a final question even though Carla had a good supply of transferred energy available. Ra said that the instrument had “the most fragile framework through which we may channel this and our energies.” This fragile framework was very likely due to Carla’s long-term experience of arthritic pain combined with the spasming condition which was also very painful. The combination of these conditions left her body completely exhausted. The Ra contact was already equal to a harsh day’s work as Ra mentioned in 60.4:

Questioner: You are saying, then, that the physical distortions that the instrument experienced are part of a balancing process? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect. The physical distortions are a result of the instrument’s not accepting fully the limitations placed prior to incarnation upon the activities of the entity once it had begun the working. The distortions caused by this working, which are inevitable given the plan chosen by this entity, are limitation and, to a degree consonant with the amount of vital and physical energy expended, weariness, due to that which is the equivalent in this instrument of many, many hours of harsh physical labor.

This is why we suggested the instrument’s thoughts dwelling upon the possibility of its suggesting to its higher self the possibility of some slight reservation of energy at a working. This instrument at this time is quite open until all resources are quite exhausted. This is well if desired. However, it will, shall we say, shorten the number of workings in what you may call the long run.

So these added sources of pain required that Ra take even more care in transmitting their energy, and the transferred energy, through Carla’s channel.

This morning I finished Chapter 7 of Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work. That was the last chapter, so 103 is now updated with every way I could think of to expand on topics to make them more understandable. Now I will go back to Living the Law of One 102: The Outer Work to do the same thing there, but I will have to start somewhere after Chapter 4 as Austin and Gary have begun editing the first few chapters. I’m not sure where they left off before leaving for the Prague Gathering in the Czech Republic last Wednesday.

This afternoon I pumped a quarter of the water out of the fish pond and refilled it with fresh water. While the water was pumping out I fertilized the water lilies and used my hoe to weed the gardens around the fish pond. While the pond was refilling I used my hake (combination of a rake and a hoe) to till the soil around the flowers along the parking area in the front of the house, the two flower mounds in the front yard, and the Sun Mandela in the back yard. That will help any future rains to sink further into the soil when they come.

A Turn Of The Eye

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

This instrument does not believe that we have anything new to say, for its mind has been over-busy with many things and meditation has been interrupted by the thoughts of the day which come in this instrument’s mind.

And yet we say that to every mind, however caught up in the affairs of the day, the Holy Spirit of Jesus the Christ speaks. It is as though a simple angle of the ear, a simple turn of the eye, the seeing about a corner is all that is needed. A quiet turning inside; a small repositioning of the mind and the voice of spirit sings once again.

For each day and for each person, in any move, in any degree of attention to the spirit whatsoever, that great principle of love, which is who we are in manifestation, in communication, may speak forth. That quiet voice, just out of reach, by a simple turn of mind comes into earshot and heart-shot.

May your days be merry! May they be full of busy things. We do not ask concentration upon holy things. We ask that in doing precisely what each soul wishes to do it may also wish to turn and listen to the voice of the Holy One.

We are with you in peace wherever you may go, whatever you may do, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 101.8:

Questioner: Thank you. Could Ra give information on any way that we could give information to Greta Woodrew as to how to alleviate her present condition of swelling?

Ra: I am Ra. We may only suggest that the honor of propinquity to light carries with it the Law of Responsibility. The duty to refrain from contumely, discord, and all things which, when unresolved within, make way for workings lies before the instrument of which you speak. This entity may, if it is desired by the scribe, share our comments upon the working of the latter entity.

The entity which is given constant and unremitting approval by those surrounding it suffers from the loss of the mirroring effect of those which reflect truthfully rather than unquestioningly. This is not a suggestion to reinstate judgment but merely a suggestion for all those supporting instruments; that is, support, be harmonious, share in love, joy, and thanksgiving, but find love within truth, for each instrument benefits from this support more than from the total admiration which overcomes discrimination.”

Greta Woodrew was a channel and a good friend of Don’s and Carla’s for many years. She had participated with them in the Mind Link in 1977, held at Andrija Puharich’s estate in upstate New York. The purpose was to demonstrate to their Confederation contacts that people concerned about spiritual evolution on a world scale could gather and work together for this goal. Apparently, some kind of difficulty later in her life caused her to suffer the same water weight gain as I did earlier from my moment of disharmony with Don. Ra recommended that we share the information about my situation with Greta, which we did. In 101.2, Ra gave the basic outline of my situation which we shared with Greta:

 Questioner: Thank you. What has caused the swelling in Jim’s body, and what can be done to heal it?

Ra: I am Ra. For the answer to this query we must begin with the consideration of the serpent, signifying wisdom. This symbol has the value of the ease of viewing the two faces of the one who is wise. Positive wisdom adorns the brow indicating indigo-ray work. Negative wisdom, by which we intend to signify expressions which effectually separate the self from the other-self, may be symbolized by the poison of the fangs. To use that which a mind/body/spirit complex has gained of wisdom for the uses of separation is to invite the fatal bite of that wisdom’s darker side.

The entity has a mental/emotional tendency, which has been lessening in distortion for some of your space/time, towards negative wisdom. The entity being already aware of this causes us not to dwell upon this point but merely to specifically draw the boundaries of the metaphysical background for the energizing of a series of bites from one of your second-density species. In this case the bite was no more than that of one of the arachnids, sometimes called the wood spider. However, it is possible that were enough work done to test the origin of the pathology of the entity, it is within possibility/probability limits that the testing would show the bite of the cottonmouth rather than the bite of the common wood spider.

The energizing took its place within the lymphatic system of the entity’s yellow-ray, physical body. Therefore, the working continues. There is increasing strain upon the spleen, the supra-renal glands, the renal complex, and some possibility/probability of difficulty with the liver. Further, the lymphatic difficulties have begun to strain the entity’s bronchial system. This is some general information upon what is to be noted as a somewhat efficient working.”

We never knew the exact situation that caused Greta to call Don and ask for assistance, but Ra’s second paragraph speaks of how those who support instruments need to combine their love for the instrument with being able to share honest and true perceptions about the overall relationship rather than try to avoid disagreement at all costs. When you have the honor of standing close to the light as a channel for light beings such as the Confederation, you also have to reflect that light as clearly as possible in your daily life. Ra called that the Law of Responsibility. In 60.16, Ra gave another aspect of how the Law of Responsibility functions:

At this space/time we may best serve you, we believe, by stating that the pyramid for meditation along with other rounded and arched or pointed circular shapes is of help to you. However, it is our observation that due to the complexity of influences upon the unmanifested being at this space/time nexus among your planetary peoples it is best that the progress of the mind/body/spirit complex take place without, as you call them, training aids because when using a training aid an entity then takes upon itself the Law of Responsibility for the quickened or increased rate of learn/teaching. If this greater understanding, if we may use this misnomer, is not put into practice in the moment by moment experience of the entity, then the usefulness of the training aid becomes negative.

In 100.15, Ra mentioned how harmony was important to our group:

Questioner: I will save that for next session and I will ask if there is anything we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. All is well. The appurtenances are most conscientiously placed. We thank this diligent group. There is much greater distortion towards harmony at this asking and we join you in praise and thanksgiving. This is always the greatest boon to improvement of the contact, for it is the harmony of the group which supports this contact.

Today was another Sabbath Day of Rest. I completed my work on Chapter 6 of 103 and felt very satisfied that I was able to add information to clarify a few areas here and there. I took my normal errand run at noon and picked up some canned cat food at Feeder’s Supply. Then I stopped by PetSmart and picked up some green pouches that I put a couple of Boscoe’s medications in which makes them very tasty for him to eat. My last stop was at Walgreen’s where I bought some non-food items. Around the middle of the afternoon I went to the 80th birthday party of an old friend of Carla’s and mine at a bowling alley in the southern part of Louisville. I got to see a few other old friends and enjoyed the party for an hour or so until it was time to get back home and take care of the upstairs kitty cats.

The Generous Giver

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

The spirit is a spirit of hospitality. To each soul is given the personality, the character, the good points and the bad. And within each soul the spirit exhorts and encourages the free and joyful sharing of the personality.

For it is not in the saving and fastidious choosing of those to whom to reflect the spirit that the spirit’s fruits are multiplied but, rather, it is to the generous giver that more and more supply of those things of which the personality is steward may be given.

Fear not the opening of the self to others this day, the sharing of laughter and conversation, but pour out generously the love that is within you and you shall find that the spirit has replenished that supply manyfold.

We leave you in infinite peace, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 101.5:

Questioner: Something occurred to me. I am going to make a guess that my illness over the past week was a function of some action by my higher self to eliminate the possibility of a residence in the proximity of the large number of bees that I observed. Would Ra comment on my statement?

Ra: I am Ra. We can comment, not upon the questioner’s physical distortions but upon the indubitable truth of second-density hive creatures; that is, that a hive mentality as a whole can be influenced by one strong metaphysical impulse. Both the instrument and the scribe have the capacity for great distortions toward nonviability, given such an attack by a great number of the stinging insects.”

In this question Don asked Ra if his higher self kept him from choosing a house in Atlanta that had bee hives close to it. Don was considering the possibility that we might move to that house, but he got sick before he was able to do so, and he asked Ra if his higher self had played a part in that sickness because of the bee hives near the house. Ra did not speak to Don’s question about his higher self’s role in this situation but said that the hive mentality was potentially dangerous for Carla and for me because our negative friend could cause all the bees to sting us, and our bodies were susceptible to failure under those conditions. This situation was the same type of situation that I faced in 101.2, when Don asked Ra why my body had swollen up with 30 lbs. of water weight in two weeks. Ra mentioned that I had made a disharmonious choice, and our negative friend had led a common wood spider to bite me as I slept and then had intensified the bite to cause my kidneys to malfunction:

Questioner: Thank you. What has caused the swelling in Jim’s body, and what can be done to heal it?

Ra: I am Ra. For the answer to this query we must begin with the consideration of the serpent, signifying wisdom. This symbol has the value of the ease of viewing the two faces of the one who is wise. Positive wisdom adorns the brow indicating indigo-ray work. Negative wisdom, by which we intend to signify expressions which effectually separate the self from the other-self, may be symbolized by the poison of the fangs. To use that which a mind/body/spirit complex has gained of wisdom for the uses of separation is to invite the fatal bite of that wisdom’s darker side.

The entity has a mental/emotional tendency, which has been lessening in distortion for some of your space/time, towards negative wisdom. The entity being already aware of this causes us not to dwell upon this point but merely to specifically draw the boundaries of the metaphysical background for the energizing of a series of bites from one of your second-density species. In this case the bite was no more than that of one of the arachnids, sometimes called the wood spider. However, it is possible that were enough work done to test the origin of the pathology of the entity, it is within possibility/probability limits that the testing would show the bite of the cottonmouth rather than the bite of the common wood spider.

The energizing took its place within the lymphatic system of the entity’s yellow-ray, physical body. Therefore, the working continues. There is increasing strain upon the spleen, the supra-renal glands, the renal complex, and some possibility/probability of difficulty with the liver. Further, the lymphatic difficulties have begun to strain the entity’s bronchial system. This is some general information upon what is to be noted as a somewhat efficient working.

Ra’s appraisal of the bees’ danger to me was interesting as I had kept six hives of bees when I lived in the woods of central Kentucky before meeting Don and Carla. During one time when I was harvesting the honey from the hives the buzzing of the bees got louder and louder and eventually some of the bees got under my bee veil and began stinging me. I ran toward my cabin tearing the veil off and swatting the bees away as I ran. When I got inside and counted the stings, I discovered that I had been stung 59 times. I think it was that experience when my immunity to bee stings changed to a sensitivity. I had seen it happen with other bee keepers who got stung a lot, and Ra suggested that it had happened to me as well.

This morning I continued to edit Chapter 6 of 103 and was able to expand some on a couple of topics that I hope were clarifying of these topics. Around noon I was on a zoom cast with the folks at the Law of One Gathering in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. It was a question and answer session, and I was impressed with the quality of questions that were asked. This is where Gary, Austin, and Trish are now as they travel through Europe in the next couple of weeks.

This afternoon I completed the trimming of the walkways around the yard, and then I used my backpack blower to blow the walkways clean.

Earth May Heal Itself

I am the spirit of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

Amidst the rampaging of the Earth, I come to you, the spirit of perfect love.

Against the storming of your peoples, I, the spirit of peace and understanding, greet you.

Against the folly of so many who eagerly seek to destroy the creation of the Father, I come with healing in my wings.

This day, turn your attention from these spoilers who ruin the Earth faster than the Earth may heal itself and gaze, in everywhere possible, at the beauties of the creation about you. Think upon your ways. Gaze upon the beauty that still remains and pray for guidance, that all things may be loved as the Father loves you.

We leave you in that love and that peace, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 100.12:

Questioner: There is the forty-five minute signal. Does Ra suggest a termination of this session, taking into consideration the instrument’s condition and all the other conditions that we have placed on this?

Ra: I am Ra. Information pertinent to this query has been previously covered. The choice of termination time, as you call it, is solely that of the questioner until the point at which we perceive the instrument beginning to use its vital resources due to the absence of transferred or native physical energy. The instrument remains open, as always.”

We had to deal with the repercussions of Carla’s blue-ray energy blockage for a few sessions after we began to treat it with antibiotics and buttermilk. During a lull in one of our Ra sessions Ra heard one of our tape recorders click off signaling the end of a 45 minute side. So Ra took that opportunity to say that ending a session at about the time that sound occurred would be helpful for the instrument so as not to overuse her during her time of recovery from the throat infections and congestion. It was in 98.15, that Ra first noted one of our tape recorders click off and linked it with the appropriate time to end the session for Carla’s benefit:

At this time we would break our routine by making an observation. We observe the following coincidence. Firstly, the congestion of this instrument’s throat due to the flow of mucous caused by energized allergic reaction has, at this point, become such that we may safely predict the probability/possibility vortex approaching certainty that within one-half of an hour we shall need to depart from this working. Secondly, as we noted the above the sound vibration made by one of your sound vibration recording devices was audible to us. If this group desires, it may choose to have sessions which are brought to an ending soon after this sound vibration occurs. This decision would ensure the minimal distortions within the instrument towards the discomfort/comfort within the throat until the effects of the magical working of your fifth-density companion have been removed.

In this question Don has just heard the tape recorder click off, so he asked Ra if we should end the session then for Carla’s benefit. Ra reminded us that we had already been given that information, and it was up to Don to decide to act upon it. Ra assured us that they would let us know when Carla’s vital energies and physical energies were being used and would suggest the end of the session at that time. Throughout the Ra contact Ra mentioned a number of times that they did not wish to deplete Carla’s vital energies as they mentioned in 30.16:

This will be the last full question of this session as this instrument is somewhat uncomfortable. We do not wish to deplete the instrument.

This morning I worked more on editing and adding to Chapter 6 of 103. This is the chapter that deals with the indigo energy center, and it is one of my favorites, so I enjoyed adding more information here and there. I also vacuumed the three bedrooms in the basement, and now they are ready for our Homecoming Gathering which will be in just over a month from now.

This afternoon I mowed the grass as we have had a lot of rain in the last couple of weeks. Then I used my trimmer to trim the side yard and the back yard. I hope to finish up the trimming and blowing clean tomorrow.

The Universality Of Suffering

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

You have pain in your heart. Is that so remarkable? It is given to each to suffer pain and, through suffering, to learn and grow.

The spirit of love wishes most greatly to comfort and relieve the heart’s suffering and asks you to gaze about at each person with whom you come in contact. Open the windows of the heart and be vulnerable before the pain of each other person and so see the universality of suffering. Then turn your hearts to the great fruits of suffering: compassion and joy.

For do you not see entities, day after day, sacrificing their concerns for the needs of others: mothers and fathers for their children, friends for friends, and, in the heart which has grown sweet with compassion, stranger for stranger?

The spirit sees the whole without boundaries of geography or personality. You dwell in boundaries and limits. Yet by seeing the pain of another soul, so you may see that your lot is not unlucky. Then open yourself to the healing movement of the spirit of love within which answers the call of the pain of others. And join in that harmony of compassion that forms a net of love about your beautiful planet amongst all peoples.

We leave you in the peace of true wholeness, both now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

I would like to remind everyone that we are holding our Meditation for World Peace again tomorrow morning at 11 am Eastern Time. We will meditate for ten minutes and send love, light, and healing energies to the people of Ukraine and Russia.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 100.11:

Questioner: The entities— the small black— or russet— and white entities have been now changed so that they appear to be sphinxes which we are assuming mean that the catalyst has been mastered. I am also assuming that they act as the power that moves the chariot depicted here so as this mastery enables the mind in its transformation to become mobile unlike it was prior to this mastery, locked within the illusion. Would Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, we ask that the student consider the Great Way not as the culmination of a series of seven activities or functions but as a far more clearly delineated image of the environment within which the mind, body, or spirit shall function. Therefore, the culturally determined creatures called sphinxes do not indicate mastery over catalyst.

The second supposition, that of placing the creatures as the movers of the chariot of mind, has far more virtue. You may connote the concept of time to the image of the sphinx. The mental and mental/emotional complex ripens and moves and is transformed in time.”

In Card Number Seven, the Great Way of the Mind, which is also known as the Conqueror or Chariot, Don noted that we again have two small black and white entities that look like sphinxes, and he assumes that they represent the mastery of catalyst and are also the movers of the chariot. He asked Ra if this movement could be interpreted as the conscious mind has now been transformed and is able to move whereas before it could not move. Ra responded that the Great Way of the Mind does not represent a culmination of all seven images of the mind, but it describes the environment of the third-density illusion in which the mind functions. Therefore, the sphinxes do not represent mastery of catalyst of the illusion. Further, Ra suggested that the sphinxes represent time regarding their relationship to the mind.  Ra said the mind matures, or ripens, over a period of time during which it is busy processing catalyst and in gaining the resulting experience. In this regard the sphinxes do, indeed, help the chariot to move through the environment of the mind, as the mind is continually being transformed by its magical work of producing growth from catalyst. In 92.17, Ra focused on the nature of the Great Way of the Mind as that portion of the mind which creates the environment in which the mind moves:

While studying the archetypical mind we may suggest that the student look at the Great Way of the Mind, not as that which is attained after contact with intelligent infinity, but rather as that portion of the archetypical mind which denotes and configures the particular framework within which the Mind, the Body, or the Spirit archetypes move.

In 103.12, Ra gives Don a little riddle as to what it is that moves the Great Way of the Mind’s chariot:

Questioner: I am guessing that the wheels on this chariot indicate the ability of the mind to be able now to move in time/space. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. We cannot say that the observation is totally incorrect, for there is as much work in time/space as the individual who evokes this complex of concepts has assimilated.

However, it would be more appropriate to draw the attention to the fact that although the chariot is wheeled, it is not harnessed to that which draws it by a physical or visible harness. What then, O Student, links and harnesses the chariot’s power of movement to the chariot?

I have always thought that it was the will of the seeker of truth that moved the chariot. I could be wrong.

This morning I went shopping for groceries just after 8 am at Kroger’s and for more deer and rabbit repellent at Walmart. After I got home I did the sheets, pillow cases, and one bedspread in the basement after recent visitors had stayed in two of the bedrooms. Then I continued editing Chapter 6 of 103.

This afternoon I finished weeding the side yard and the front yard so that all of the yard has now been weeded. Then I sprayed my neighbor’s flowers and my flowers with deer and rabbit repellent once again as we got an unexpected rain last night.

The Race Of Detail And Duty

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

We see that you have many concerns upon your minds this day and are already eagerly planning how to run the race of detail and duty. How quickly you feel you must run!

Know that the love of Jesus the Christ moves effortlessly and gracefully with you in each moment of concern, in each detail of the working day. As close as breathing is this love which smooths and makes plentiful time, energy and coordination.

Indeed, there is no lack of things to do, yet neither is there a lack of service to offer in love. Let each detail be transformed by the inner asking of the knowledge of the love and service breathed forth by the spirit upon all material things.

We leave you in perfect peace, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 100.9:

Questioner: It would also seem to me that, since Ra stated in the last session the limit of the viewpoint is the source of all distortions, that the very nature of the service-to-self distortions that create the left-hand path are a function of the veil [and] therefore are dependent, you might say, to some degree, on at least a partial continued veiling. Does this make any sense?

Ra: I am Ra. There is the thread of logic in what you suppose.

The polarities are both dependent upon a limited viewpoint. However, the negative polarity depends more heavily upon the illusory separation betwixt the self and all other mind/body/spirit complexes. The positive polarity attempts to see through the illusion to the Creator in each mind/body/spirit complex, but for the greater part is concerned with behaviors and thoughts directed towards other-selves in order to be of service. This attitude in itself is full of the stuff of your third-density illusion.”

In this question Don quotes one of Ra’s pithy truths that it is “the limit of one’s viewpoint that is the source of all distortions,” and he asked Ra if this would especially be true for negative entities which have cut themselves off from all other selves in order to manipulate them to serve the self. He also asked if the veil continues to be a part of the negative path.  Ra agreed with Don’s basic assumption but suggested that the positive polarity also deals with the limitation of the viewpoint, even though it attempts to serve other selves and see all as the Creator. But since the behaviors and thoughts of positively oriented entities also contain distortions there is the generation of much catalyst as positive entities interact with all other selves around them due to misperceptions and miscommunications—the “stuff of third density.” That is to say, third density is made out of such catalyst and thusly offers endless opportunities for seekers of truth to grow and polarize in consciousness. In 54.7, Don and Ra create the framework for how this “stuff of third density” works:

Questioner: Now, I have made these statements just to get to the basic question I wish to ask. It is a difficult question to ask.

We have, coming from the sub-Logos we call our sun, intelligent energy, which then forms, and we’ll take as an example a single sub-sub-logos which is a mind/body/spirit complex. This intelligent energy is somehow modulated or distorted, so that it ends up as a mind/body/spirit complex with certain distortions of personality that it is necessary for the mind/body/spirit complex or the mental portion of that complex to undistort in order to conform once more precisely with the original intelligent energy.

First, I want to know if my statement on that is correct, and, secondly, I want to know why this is the way that it is; if there is any answer other than the first distortion of the Law of One for this?

Ra: I am Ra. This statement is substantially correct. If you will penetrate the nature of the first distortion in its application of self knowing self, you may begin to distinguish the hallmark of an Infinite Creator, variety. Were there no potentials for misunderstanding and, therefore, understanding, there would be no experience.

This morning I spent about an hour working on Chapter 6 of Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work. I was able to share some of my own experiences as to how I was able to “follow my bliss,” as Joseph Campbell recommended in his books and talks, as a way of progressing on my spiritual journey. Then for the next hour I worked on eradicating mealy bugs on my Indian rope plant and my Hoya.

This afternoon I began weeding in the back yard and was able to weed the entire back yard, including the flowers in the center of the Moss Garden, the astilbe garden, the hidden garden, the new liriope garden next to the cross area, and the yellow creeping Jenny garden. My last job was to spray my neighbor’s Hosta and hydrangea bushes as we have gotten rain since I sprayed them yesterday.

Put On Spiritual Clothing

I am of the principle of the love of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

Putting on the clothing is part of the preparation for the day’s business. We suggest to you that you also put on the spiritual clothing of light which may aid the process of seeking during the day to come.

Visualize and call to the self that great armor of protection that goes before, follows after, guards upon each side and permeates each part and cell of your body. This armor of light enables the seeker to dwell within the state of joy and peace which the living waters of love, caught up in the armor of light, can bear.

Without such armor, without such deep remembrance of light, it is difficult to dance throughout the daily experience. Each time light is forgotten, be not discouraged but call in again upon yourself that great protection.

We leave you in peace, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 100.8:

Questioner: The fact that the veil is raised higher on the right-hand side than on the left indicates to me that the adept choosing the positive polarity will have greater success in penetrating the veil. Would Ra comment?

Ra: I am Ra. This is a true statement if it is realized that the questioner speaks of potential success. Indeed, your third-density experience is distorted or skewed so that the positive orientation has more aid than the so-called negative.”

Again Don asks about Card Number Seven, The Great Way of the Mind, and wonders if the fact that the veil is raised higher on the right side than the left side might mean that the positive seeker has more success in penetrating the veil of forgetting. Ra agrees but adds that the position of the veil suggest potential success. I would guess that means that the positive seeker will have to make a good effort, shall we say, in order to realize any success at penetrating the veil. This success won’t just be handed to him because he is positively oriented. In 95.22-.23, Ra gives an example of greater aid going to the pure seeker:

Questioner: And it seems that the square upon which the entity sits, which is almost totally black, is a representation of the material illusion and the white cat is guarding the right-hand path which is now separated in experience from the left. Would Ra comment on that observation?

Ra: I am Ra. O student, your sight almost sees that which was intended. However, the polarities need no guardians. What, then, O student, needs the guard?

Questioner: What I meant to say was that the entity is guarded along the right-hand path, once it is chosen, from effects of the material illusion that are of a negative polarity. Would Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. This is an accurate perception of our intent, O student. We may note that the great cat guards in direct proportion to the purity of the manifestations of intention and the purity of inner work done along this path.

In general Ra said that the entire third-density experience is skewed so that the positive orientation has more aid than the negative. In 90.21, Ra gave the first indication that the right-hand path is the more efficient path:

Questioner: Then what you are saying is that once the path is recognized, either the positive or the negative polarized entity can find hints along his path as to the efficiency of that path. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. That which you say is correct upon its own merits, but is not a repetition of our statement. Our suggestion was that within the experiential nexus of each entity within its second-density environment and within the roots of mind there were placed biases indicating to the watchful eye the more efficient of the two paths. Let us say, for want of a more precise adjective, that this Logos has a bias towards kindness.

This morning I was on a podcast with Zenith from the United Kingdom, and he had a long list of questions to ask me regarding the Ra contact, the Law of One, L/L Research, Don, Carla and I. We had a good time trading ideas of what the spiritual path might be like for different people and how other channeled information might have inspiration in this regard.

This afternoon I transplanted 9 milkweed plants in the center of the Ruins Mound as a host plant for the larva of the Monarch Butterfly. I also have the Black-Eyed Susan growing in various parts of my yard that serves as a nectar source for the Monarch Butterfly. I want to do my part to help the Monarch Butterfly survive as it is now on the endangered species list. Then I sprayed all of my flowers and my neighbor’s flowers with deer and rabbit repellent as my neighbor will be out of town for a few days.

You Are The New Jerusalem

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ, the consciousness of divine love which lives within the world today and which pours through the clouds of mundane sin and sorrow like sunshine awaiting the grateful eye.

Do you not know that you are the city upon the hill, that you are the new Jerusalem and that in every cell of your body you may find, recognize and celebrate the renewing and recreative energy of the spirit of the living Christ?

You may say, “Jesus,” and mean it not, yet the vibration shall come to you. You may say, “Come, Holy Spirit,” and doubt greatly, yet eventually that energy shall come to you. Know each member, each thought, each cell of the wholeness of your body, the twelve upon twelve upon twelve which one hundred forty four thousand represents.

Allow, await and expect the power and the peace of the love of Jesus Christ and the new Jerusalem shall shine through you. And the city upon the hill be a beacon of light.

We leave you in joy and peace, both this day and evermore. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 100.7:

Questioner: Thank you. We will probably return to this card next session for more of an observation after we study Ra’s comments. To conserve and efficiently use the time at this time I will make some notes with respect to Card Seven.

First, the veil between the conscious and the unconscious mind has been removed. The veil is the curtain, I would assume, at the top which is lifted. Even though this veil has been removed perception of intelligent infinity is still distorted according to the seeker’s beliefs and means of seeking. Would Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. As one observes the veil of the image of the Great Way of Mind it may be helpful to ideate using the framework of environment. The Great Way of Mind, Body, or Spirit is intended to limn the milieu within which the work of mind, body, or spirit shall be placed.

Thusly the veil is shown both somewhat lifted and still present, since the work of mind and its transformation involves progressive lifting of the great veil betwixt conscious and deep minds. The complete success of this attempt is not properly a portion of third-density work and, more especially, third-density mental processes.”

Don’s first question about Card Number Seven, the Great Way of the Mind, also known as the Conqueror or The Chariot, notes that the veil between the conscious and subconscious mind has been mostly lifted, and he asks if the seeker’s beliefs and method of seeking the truth still distort intelligent infinity for the seeker. Ra begins their answer by suggesting that we see the Great Way of the Mind as describing the environment in which the work of the mind is located and which has been created by the Great Way of the Mind for the mind to explore. Then Ra says that the veil has not been totally lifted in this card as there is still work by the mind to be done to progressively lift this veil between the conscious and unconscious portions of the mind. In 79.41, Ra first talked about the nature of the Great Way of the Mind and its function to create the environment of the mind that it may explore:

Questioner: Would the Conqueror, or Chariot, then, represent the culmination of the action of the first six archetypes into a conquering of the mental processes, even possibly removing the veil?

Ra: I am Ra. This is most perceptive. The Archetype Seven is one difficult to enunciate. We may call it the Path, the Way, or the Great Way of the Mind. Its foundation is a reflection and substantial summary of Archetypes One through Six.

One may also see the Way of the Mind as showing the kingdom or fruits of appropriate travel through the mind in that the mind continues to move as majestically through the material it conceives of as a chariot drawn by royal lions or steeds.

Ra went on to say that the complete lifting of this veil continues even after third density is complete because the third-density mental processes are not sufficient to complete it. I am guessing that either fourth-density mental processes will be necessary for the complete lifting of this veil, or the nature of the spirit will also have to be called upon as it contains a more complete representation of the unity of the One Creator. In 83.18, Ra gave us the process of beginning to penetrate the veil of forgetting:

Questioner: Specifically, by what process in the first case, when two polarized entities would attempt to penetrate the veil, whether they be positively or negatively polarized—specifically by what technique would they penetrate the veil?

Ra: I am Ra. The penetration of the veil may be seen to begin to have its roots in the gestation of green-ray activity, that all-compassionate love which demands no return. If this path is followed the higher energy centers shall be activated and crystallized until the adept is born. Within the adept is the potential for dismantling the veil to a greater or lesser extent that all may be seen again as one. The other-self is primary catalyst in this particular path to the piercing of the veil, if you would call it that.

This morning I entertained Carla’s niece, Emily Jean Rueckert, and her boyfriend, Matthew, who arrived here late last night as Emily is in the process of moving from Colorado Springs, Colorado back to Falls Church, Virginia where she was raised. We had a good talk about the various topics of all the books that I have in my house, and we also discussed what channeling is and how Carla served as the instrument for the Ra contact. They got on the road around noon and we wished each other well on our individual life paths.

In the afternoon I went over to Theineman’s Nursery and bought 15 Spirea bushes which I then transplanted to the area where the hollyhocks were growing until they got leaf rust and began to die out. The Spirea are perennials, so they should come back each year with their beautiful blooms and leaves.

Peace And Joy Undisturbed

I am that principle that is the divine love of Jesus the Christ. I greet you and bless you in the full consciousness of unconditional love.

Negative thinking lies all about you. You do not have to partake in it. When there is something which crosses your consciousness and turns the mind to negative emotion, move back into an awareness of the infinite love that is the principle of your life and know that the Christ within may find a positive answer in each and every situation; may find a way to increase light rather than discourage light; to find the words to heal and not to wound; to find the compassion that aids those who are bothersome rather than ignoring such entities.

The living spirit of Jesus the Christ is available at the present moment and at each moment of the infinity of creation. It is the gift of Jesus the Christ to all who follow in His footsteps.

No matter what you may suffer today, cast your mind always upon the positive; upon the loving and compassionate aspects of those things which are occurring and you shall find your peace and joy undisturbed in the heart of your being, as your being speaks the truth of unconditional love.

In that love and peace we leave you. Amen.
