I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on understanding the Choices of Others, From the standpoint of Logos:

Understanding the Choices of Others

From the standpoint of Logos

The Logos’s task—and the task of all Logoi–is to aid the one Creator in knowing Itself by creating the infinite creation. The entire creation is bursting with intelligent life in infinite forms that are aiding the Logos in fulfilling Its task. Every entity at every level of consciousness is partaking in this process to attempt to know the Creator within and by so doing to help the Creator to know Itself from without. Every choice that we make in every incarnation we have ever had provides the Creator with more ways to know Itself. These choices also help us to know that Creator that resides within us. It is a mutually beneficial relationship as the One comes to know the One in all of its infinite portions.

This Logos, manifesting through light, created out of Itself the suns in their galaxies. And each sun is a sub-Logos, an undistorted portion of the one infinite Creator, yet each Logos was given the ability to make the tailoring details of its sub-creation of the one infinite Father. Therefore, your Logos has created for you a certain kind of environment for the growth of your spirit and for the collection of information to be offered again to the one infinite Creator, that It may know more about Itself.

[. . .]

The Logos of your sun, then, has further manifested in its creation the particles of the One. For each of you is a spark of the one Creator, and each of you has, in every cell of your body, the undistorted mystery of the One. Your wisdom lies deep within you. You do not have to reach for it. It will come into your consciousness as you are ready and as you ask. It helps a great deal in this process if you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, again, as the one known as William has said, that you are in your integrity and can rest in your rightness to ask. All are worthy to ask and be answered.” Q’uo, August 12, 2007

Q’uo said that the Logos has made the world around us as the environment in which we will offer all of our choices to the one Creator as more aspects of the Creator to add to Its knowledge of Itself. Q’uo further said that we also have the mystery and the wisdom of the Creator in every cell of our body that will help to propel us on our journey of seeking the Creator. As we move on our spiritual journeys we are doing the equivalent of asking to have this mystery and this wisdom revealed to us, and as we continue to ask we shall experience more revelations of the One we seek and serve in all. We are “creatures of love” inhabiting flesh and bones who are following the inner direction of our guidance systems that help us to discover our inner being as it is expressed in our outer doing. We are flesh and bones, and we are Spirit. Through our choices we are the One seeking and serving the One.

In the following quotes Ra gave us the basic reason why our Logos has made communication and choices easier:

Questioner: Then you say that the more efficient of the two paths was suggested in a subliminal way to second density to be the service-to-others path. Am I correct?

Ra: I am Ra. We did not state which was the more efficient path. However, you are correct in your assumption, as you are aware from having examined each path in some detail in previous querying.

Questioner: Would this be the reason for the greater positive harvests? I suspect that it isn’t, but would there be Logoi that have greater negative percentage harvests because of this type of biasing?

Ra: I am Ra. No. There have been Logoi with greater percentages of negative harvests. However, the biasing mechanisms cannot change the requirements for achieving harvestability either in the positive or in the negative sense. There are Logoi which have offered a neutral background against which to polarize. This Logos chose not to do so but instead to allow more of the love and light of the Infinite Creator to be both inwardly and outwardly visible and available to the sensations and conceptualizations of mind/body/spirit complexes undergoing Its care in experimenting.

Questioner: Were there any other circumstances, biases, consequences, or plans set up by the Logos other than those we have discussed for the evolution of Its parts through the densities?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: What were these?

Ra: I am Ra. One more; that is, the permeability of the densities so that there may be communication from density to density and from plane to plane or sub-density to sub-density. Ra, 90.22-.25.

Ra begins their answer to Don’s questions about being able to chose the positive or negative path by confirming Don’s assumption that the positive path was the more efficient choice for seekers. When Don asked if this was the reason for more positive than negative harvests Ra said that was incorrect. Ra mentioned that some Logoi had greater negative harvests but the fact that the positive path is more efficient did not change the requirements for harvestability which are set at 51% service to others for positive and 95% service to self for negative.

However, Ra did say that our particular Logos decided to allow more of the love and light of the Creator to be able to be perceived inwardly and outwardly by entities within our third-density illusion. Don’s last question was to ask Ra if the Logos had made any other plans in the nature of the creation that would affect our evolutionary process. Ra said that the Logos had made the densities of this octave of creation and the sub-densities of our third density permeable so that communication would be possible at each of these levels, and this would obviously aid the process of making the choices of polarity.

This morning a dear friend called me to let me know that her beloved Kitty had died yesterday, and she didn’t know what to do with her body since she lives in an apartment and has nowhere to bury her. I told her to bring Kitty to my house, and we could bury her in my pet cemetery. I got the grave dug, and when she arrived we performed the burial ceremony that Carla devised from her Episcopal Church burial ceremonies for people. I was so glad to be able to help as I know what she is going through in losing a beloved pet.

Yesterday’s Faith

I am a particle of the love of Christ, the spirit sent forth to enliven the world which lies in darkness. I greet you in the consciousness of that love which is powerful enough to banish night.

Yesterday’s faith is not today’s, nor is hope for tomorrow a substitute for the present consciousness of redemption. If you seek to know the consciousness of love, seek in the here and now, not through memory or through desire for future good. For it is in the present moment that your darkness resides. It is the present darkness over which you have potential power, through the grace of Jesus Christ and through the love of love itself.

Know you not that seeking for light, even in a dark present, can at least crack open the gates of light? And for that slight, illumined crack of light, there is no price valuable enough to purchase so dear a thing! For only a little light, sought for and found, may illuminate all of your present darkness if you can but will it so.

Thus, do not depend upon your faith as if it were a constant thing, for, like food for the body, the nourishment of the soul, being light, must be taken daily, and, indeed, periodically within each day, that you may replenish the light within you which comes from another dimension.

From the dimension of peace, we wish you peace, 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 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on when we go too far from normalcy in a system it acts oddly:

When we go too far from normalcy in a system it acts oddly

As we have said before through this instrument, what we see as we gaze into the mind and the heart of your people as a global tribe is a troubling tendency to seek aggression and war instead of diplomacy and conversation. This tendency multiplied throughout a power-hungry world could result in your nation-states acting aggressively in such a manner as to set off a true doomsday with their bombs. This is possible.

And we would ask each of you to be aware of this tendency in the human heart toward aggression instead of patience insofar as you are able personally. We would encourage each of you to “choose communication over aggression, patience over impatience, love over fear, and hope over exclusion”.

What you as a person do may seem to begin and end within yourself. But we say to you that you act not only for yourself but for humankind. The choices that you make, if made purely and with conscious intention, can change the world.” Q’uo, April 16, 2006

Whether the system we are talking about is a family, a community, or a nation the normal interactions between the members of any system of people would include clear communication, diplomacy, patience, and compassion. This is the normal and hoped-for path to the resolving of disharmony and the cooperation of people for the attaining of respective needs. However, if there are deviations within the systems of entities of any size—especially nations–manifesting as impatience, selfishness, jealously, or greed, then aggression and violence become more likely, and the system of peoples involved will very likely act oddly, to say the least. So it was Q’uo’s recommendation that we “choose communication over aggression, patience over impatience, love over fear, and hope over exclusionand while doing so realize that this kind of a choice, when made with a conscious intention to do so, can actually change the world.

In the following quote Q’uo again mentions how aggression and violence could cause great deviations from a normal and harmonious way of life:

Imagine in the days to come—the tsunamis, the hurricanes, the earthquakes, all of those things that surround the end of an age in which the heat of aggression and war has been stored in the earth and must be allowed to be released—the opportunities that you will have to witness to the light. You may see for yourself as you gaze at the events occurring in your Earth world at this time that the great majority of entities of the tribe of humankind are just a heartbeat away from giving and loving and caring and living in the fourth density where you may feed those about you and where you may expect those about you to feed you.

Certainly what this instrument would call the “loyal opposition” is delighted to fly above the radar with war and rumors of war. We simply ask you not to be dismayed but to move down into the roots of your being, down into who you are and why you are here at this time. It is a precious opportunity which you have to serve the light and to ask, “What is Your will for me today, for I give this day to You. This is Your day. I am Your servant. Q’uo, January 23, 2010.

Q’uo reminded us that our Mother Earth’s population has engaged for thousands of years in wars that have stored the “heat of aggression” in the crust of our Earth. Looking at Mother Earth as the largest system we have in our third density, these millenia of wars are the actions most easily seen as the furthest away from normalcy that one can imagine. This heat of aggression must be released by our Mother Earth in order for Her to be able to accept and harmonize with the fourth-density vibrations which have been surrounding our Earth for many years now. As this heat is released we all have the chance to both feel sympathy for all who are victims of this released heat and to feel joy for the approaching light of fourth density which is the final outcome of this release of the heat of aggression.

Q’uo also revealed that our “loyal opposition” of negative entities are most happy with the inconveniences that are occurring due to this heat of aggression that is being released and which is causing fear and doom to overcome many who are aware the potential for destruction in the years to come. Instead of partaking in this kind of fear Q’uo recommended that each of us can play a very positive role in these events by remembering who we are as wanderers and seekers of truth and that we have come here to lighten the planetary vibrations and help to open the doors to the fourth-density vibrations of love and understanding. Each day we can ask the Creator what we may do to aid Mother Earth and Her children in welcoming a new way of being in the fourth-density vibrations.

With all of this in mind, Q’uo completed their quote by reminding us that each of us, as members of humankind, can change the world by how we behave with each other. If we can see that we are all one then it is easier to choose to love each other as we love ourselves, and do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie said it well:

We Are the World

U.S.A. for Africa

There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon make a change
We’re all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me

Oh, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world…

Today is Thanksgiving which is supposedly the result of the three-day feast in 1621 between Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Native Americans. But as time has gone on in recent years Native Americans refer to this day as Thankstaking because as history has shown there has been terrible violence imposed on indigenous tribes ever since in the history of America. Their land has been taken from them and, for the most part, they have been relegated to small reservations in various parts of America, and they have no political power to change this situation. Hopefully, the Land Back Movement will be able to change this situation for the better. Wikipedia described the Land Back Movement like this:

“Land Back is a movement that aims to re-establish Indigenous political authority over territories Indigenous tribes and activist groups assert belong to them by treaty rights. Scholars from the Indigenous-run Yellowhead Institute at Toronto Metropolitan University describe Land Back as a process of “reclaiming Indigenous jurisdiction: breathing life into rights and responsibilities.

In addition to the transfer of deeds, Land Back includes respecting Indigenous rights, preserving languages and traditions, and ensuring food sovereignty, housing, and clean air and water.”

This afternoon I took advantage of the warmer weather and went outside to do a few small jobs. First, I checked the air pressure in each of Stanley’s tires and filled the two that were quite low. Then I cleaned the filters in the fish pond and got the pump connected to the UV light working again. My last job was to fill the fish pond with another few inches of water.

Trust That Within You

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

The difficulty which living within the physical shell of the body creates in understanding that the spiritual path is a path of plenty and light is that the outer circumstances of the path of light seem anything but comfortable.

There is truly a narrow path whereby one may maintain contact within the self with the spirit which enlivens all things. It is best not to look for evidence of the spirit’s work within men and within the world but, rather, faithfully to rest in the trust you have in that which is unseen but which has been as a beneficent wind moving across and guiding your voyage of seeking and discovery.

Those attitudes allow one to become aware of the simple joy available to one who is not limited by the definitions of self which the limitations of the body seem to impose. Accept and respect that within you which is moved by the spirit. And listen to the inner voice as to an honored guest.

We leave you in the peace of this process of living by faith, now and ever. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on the discrete nature of choice: natural boundaries:

The Discrete Nature of Choice: Natural boundaries—

We cannot control everything

You do not have to control your life in terms of knowing that you will be fed with spiritual food at all times. This is not a cause for concern. And this perhaps can rest your mind, for when you do not need to reach and grasp for the spirituality of your day or the cogency of the catalyst that is being presented to you, then you can relax and focus simply on paying attention to the present moment.” Q’uo, May 6, 2007

All of the choices that we make in deciding how to be of service to others, and how to progress on our spiritual journeys, occur within certain boundaries of our experience, and we cannot control all of those boundaries of time, energy, opportunity, talents and so forth. In the quote above Q’uo suggests that we should not worry about not having control over the events in our lives. The universe and our pre-incarnative choices are arranged in such a way that if we miss one opportunity to learn and to serve, that another one will come around soon to give us another try. The very fact that these opportunities keep repeating themselves is a rather obvious hint that there is a lesson to learn or a service to offer that we might want to take advantage of.

Q’uo further recommended that we do not have to plan and scheme as to how and when we will serve as we wish to serve or learn as we hope to learn. We can simply have faith that we will always be fed spiritual food. If we can relax into that realization we can simply concentrate on the present moment and see what fate and synchronicity have brought for us to consider. In this way we can cooperate with our pre-incarnative choices and answer according to our highest calling.

And in this quote Q’uo suggested that releasing control in our decision making is akin to living a life that seeks one’s destiny:

Truly, when at last you do not mind free-falling you shall have arrived at a reasonably comfortable metaphysical stance from which to gain a somewhat more accurate view of the rhythmic beating of destiny. Blown by the winds of free will, that destiny has a surety, a sure-footedness that cannot be moved by decisions that turn you from one direction to another. You cannot go away from the right path, for those lessons that you came to explore, those lessons of how to love and how to allow being loved, are fluid and living and they can move with you wherever you go. So, in the sense of making tragic errors, we ask you to be fearless. You cannot make a mistake, metaphysically speaking, for your lesson and your destiny shall follow you wherever you are moved to go. Yet to cooperate with that defined destiny is often to allow the little world to die away that the greater self and the greater will might be presented more clearly. Q’uo, May 18, 1997.

Not only can we not control everything in our lives, but, according to what Q’uo suggested in this quote, it is far better to make our choices in our lives according to what our destiny manifests for us. In order to move in harmony with our destiny, which I believe could also be seen as pre-incarnative choices, we just have to go with the flow of events in our lives without becoming overconcerned about making errors in our choices. Q’uo recommended that we be fearless in aligning our choices with our destiny, especially regarding our ability to love with an open heart and to be loved in that same fashion. So we take our focus off of the small world of our everyday lives and allow our greater self that knows our destiny to manifest it to us. I would also say that this entire process inevitably requires that we use our intuition to determine what our destiny is.

This afternoon I went over the Thieneman’s Nursery and bought two flats of pansies and transplanted them into the two flower pots on the front porch. Then I covered them with the deer proof netting with hopes that they will live throughout the winter and provide blooms even in the cold weather. I used my backpack blower to clean up around these two pots, and while I was at it I blew the rest of the leaves in the front yard into the area around the pet cemetery because I would like the front yard to look as good as possible for our first public channeling meditation that we will have this coming Saturday.

Your Vessel Of Dust

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

You have seen yourself as a boat upon the river of life, being blown to and fro by forces which you cannot control. The spirit within you asks you to enlarge your vision, deepen your understanding, and share yourself, not with any frail craft but with the illimitable ocean which is your true nature.

It is the illusion of wood and sail, the illusion of tides and winds which make one feel apart from the nourishing water which supports and upholds life. Think now of this productive image. The wood dissolves. The sails disappear. And that most frail vessel of the physical body is released. At last the seeker becomes one with the sea within which lies wholeness of life.

This is water which the soul breathes. This is wholeness which the body mistakenly denies. Know that you are one with that which feeds, nourishes and sustains your spirit. Know that you are not limited but are only a drop of the sea of consciousness which moves sometimes into a vessel of dust, that it may be fruitful, just as raindrops mold themselves about the dust within the atmosphere and thus fall down to nourish the crops that feed your world.

We leave you flowing freely and endlessly in the peace of the ever-moving water which is the consciousness of love, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

2022-11-22

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on flashes of insight:

“Flashes of Insight”, Higher Feelings and Intuition—like artists

Your people are locked in the darkness of manifestation, and so are you, yet within you there is light immeasurable. To be able to find and trust the intuitions which move from the light to the mind is most helpful, for one truly does not ever know when one is serving, one merely attempts such, and leaves the outcome in the hands of the one to whom the gift has been given, for it matters not to the giver if the gift is appreciated or not, but only if the gift is given freely and gladly without the nagging expectation of being paid back. Q’uo, December 10, 1989

Now we come to the intuitive way of making choices. In our attempts to be of service to others we are most likely to begin with an intellectual analysis of who has asked for our service and how our service might be given. If it should be that we have no definitive answer for this question, then it is that we are wise to consult our deeper self, our deeper mind, our intuition. In the quote above, Q’uo said that in our daily lives we are all “locked in the darkness of manifestation.” That suggests that the veil of forgetting is producing an inability in many instances for our choice-making to be accurate no matter how much analysis we may apply. We need a way to penetrate that veil of forgetting. Fortunately, we seem to have that way within our being.

Q’uo then said that we do have an immeasurable light within the heart of our being that can provide illumination in the form of intuition that will give us the direction in which to go. When those intuitive flashes of inspiration come into our minds we do well to trust these hunches and offer our service without any conditions. We can never know for sure whether the service will be appreciated. All we can know is that our inner knowing has spoken; we have given freely; and all is well.

At another time Q’uo gave a slightly different take on how our intuition can function to help us make choices:


There is an enormous storehouse of information which cannot ever be known in the proper sense of that word. It cannot be scientifically or objectively known. Yet this source of information is extremely helpful in the making of decisions. It is a source of information used extensively and almost to the exclusion of any other source by those in beginning fourth density. It is that portion of the mind found in the subconscious, according to your terminology, and described in various ways by those among your people who understand the great well of knowledge which intuition may offer. The intuitive faculties, the heart, this instrument would say the gut, the stomach of the mind, that which feels rather than thinks, is, when shallow and prurient feelings are removed from the mix, an extremely useful and helpful faculty for the making of choices. Q’uo, May 3, 1987

Apparently, each of us has what Q’uo called an “enormous storehouse of information” within us that is not really able to be fathomed by the conscious, rational mind. It can’t be known via science nor can it be known in an objective sense. It is part of our great subconscious mind, that mind beyond the veil, that mind that has connections to the planetary mind and the cosmic mind. Q’uo even suggested that it is the mind that is more well known and used in the fourth density. Because of its connection to the more advanced levels of consciousness which partake in the unity of the creation, decisions that are made when we seek our deepest intuitive faculties are more likely to be helpful to achieve our goals and desires upon our spiritual journeys. Of course, Q’uo also reminded us that there can be some small distortions in the way of “shallow and prurient feelings” that may need to be removed from the overall message of the intuition. This could be seen as a kind of static on the line that would not change the overall message.

This morning I took my speed walk with a cane, as my surgeon recommended, and I was glad to be able to cover a mile and a quarter in a reasonable amount of time. Then I did my stretching exercises for only the second time since my surgery, and I think these exercises are also helping my right hip and thigh to regain some flexibility. Then I took a shower before running errands to pick up supplements at the Rainbow Blossom Health Food Store, a couple of sandwiches at Panera Bread, some cat food at Feeder’s Supply, and some food for myself at Paul’s Fruit Market.

Ask For The Spirit Of Love

I am the spirit of the living God. I greet you in the consciousness of that great name which is love. I am of the vibration of the consciousness of love which comforts this child.

As you perceive, more and more, the depth of lack of glad understanding which you express with regard to the consciousness of love, you may naturally become disheartened. Although it was never intended that difficulties dishearten the seeker, it is necessary, in order to appreciate love’s consciousness, that perceptions be had of the great dynamic between the action of the spirit of love and the substance upon which that action takes place.

For there is much within the consciousness that is experienced by sons of God upon the Earth which is dead to all consciousness of love. And thus the redemption of the action of love upon this consciousness is all the more remarkable.

Remember that those who do not ask for the spirit of love to come upon them shall not experience a substantial amount of grace. For even were spiritual grace to be given by another who prays for you, unless you gladly receive this grace, it shall not endure. Seek always, then, the redemption of that which is dead and do not mourn your iniquity fruitlessly.

May the consciousness of love keep you in peace, now and always. Amen.

2022-11-21

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on planning your choices:

Planning your Choices

Forethought and knowledge—like computer programmers

Before we are conscious of our spiritual natures, and of the process of polarizing our consciousness, we are able to serve others as the opportunities come to us in a way that may seem unplanned or unconscious. This type of service is still of a polarizing nature though perhaps not as dependable as it would be, were we conscious seekers of truth. When we become conscious seekers of truth we are more able to participate in choosing how to be of service to others. An analogy might be to see ourselves as magnets drawing more opportunities for polarizing in service to others to us as we become more and more conscious of our desire to be of service. In the following quote Q’uo shared advice on how we can make effective conscious choices of how to be of service to others.

“You gaze upon our perception of the entire point of the third-density experience which you now enjoy. Each present moment brings its burgeoning harvest of possibility. Some moments are over-burdened with the need to choose. Let your faith keep you as unflustered as possible. Let your skills at using reason keep you aware of mundane concerns. But, above all, realize that both are but tools. The decision, the choice, is best made when it is made not only by you, but by such a deep portion of the self that one is one who knows, one who has a quiet mind because there is an inner sureness, ‘Yes, I have opened the heart to faith, the mind to rational consideration. Decision is not mathematical. Beyond a certain point, I cannot defend my choice. However, I know and feel sure that it is the one I need to make’.” Q’uo, May 24, 1992

As we are planning our choices in our everyday lives in general, and in our spiritual journeys in particular, there are a couple of ways of thinking about these choices. One is more logical, and one is more intuitive. In the logical approach, there is still another component to the process than just the rational mind, and that would be the general concept of faith.

In the above quote, Q’uo began by saying that some choices may seem to the Player to be more urgent than others, but whatever the urgency that is perceived, Q’uo suggested that we utilize our faith in our ability to make good choices to keep us from becoming flustered by any urgency. We need to know that everything will happen at the appropriate time for the service to be offered and to be accepted. Q’uo also recommended that we realize our ability to use reason will take all the factors of the need to choose into account in due time because we know how to use our reason and our faith as tools in any decision-making situation. We have utilized these skills over a period of time and have gained proficiency in their use.

Once having utilized both our reasoning ability and our faith in being able to make good choices there is a deeper mind that we consult to achieve our final assurance that our choice is the right one. You might see it as a deeper portion of the conscious mind or even a portion of our unconscious mind. This is that place that we go when we seek the confidence of our oneness with all things to give us the assurance that our choice is the best one that we can make. Then we make the Choice.

In the following quote L/Leema mentions another level of consideration of how we can make conscious choices to be of service to others:

In being of service to others, begin with the largest picture, that of infinite, everlasting consciousness, the one original Thought, the Logos. In meditation, in focused silence, fall into the deep ocean of that infinite space, that infinite light, that everlasting love, and lose yourself, lose your small clay vessel. When you come back to this reality as you may call it of the planetary sphere and its day-to-day occurrences, you shall have brought back a treasure—yourself—in the larger sense. Each moment shall seem so much more precious to you, for there are so few of them while you are within this clay vessel, while you are able to interact as you do within the illusion which you enjoy. L/Leema, June 2, 1985

Basically L/Leema is suggesting that we can be of service to others most effectively, not through immediate actual interaction with others that we wish to serve, but by transforming ourselves through meditation. L/Leema said that in meditation we can lose ourselves, as an individualized entity with a body of clay, in the love and light of the Logos. By losing ourselves in this manner we can become transformed into a greater version of ourselves, an evolution of the love and light that is within us at all times. Then we have a greater ability and desire to be of service to others in every precious moment that we experience for the rest of our lives. Our expanded awareness is now more effective in helping others to expand their own awareness.

This morning I took Mr. Mush to the vet to have an X-ray taken of his jaw to see what is causing the swelling there. While the vet was examining Mr. Mush she found a puncture wound in the bottom of his mouth, which was probably the cause of the large abscess that has drained in the last few days. She wondered if he had been in a cat fight, but I said not since two years ago when he and Boscoe fought, so this puncture wound is a puzzle. When I went back to pick him up I was told that Mush is doing well, and that the necrotic skin from his abscess is gone. Now I need to clean that area each day and give him pain shots for a few more days, and then he will probably not need them anymore.

This afternoon I was on a zoom meet with Pupak Haghighi, and the topic was Rewilding the Fertile Crescent in Iran. Like so many places in the world today the Fertile Crescent is subject to some of the worse effects of global warming. What used to be fertile is now dry. Trees have died out and many animals are now on the endangered species list because their environment cannot support them anymore. Pupak and many other folks with deep concerns and knowledge about rewilding arid areas gave very informative and inspiring presentations suggesting various ways this situation can be reversed. Pupak, herself, has a program called Trees for Hope that she is pursuing in the Fertile Crescent to help bring it back into a state of harmonious balance where all systems of the Earth may play their natural part in giving hope to all people, plants, and animals to live together in beauty and hope.

You Are The First Sons

I greet you in the consciousness of love. I am the principle of Christ’s love in the vibration which comforts this child.

When we spoke to this instrument announcing our presence we said, “I am here, my son,” which puzzled this instrument mightily. She asked if we were aware that we had made an error. Yet we had made no error. For you play roles within the illusion of the mundane world, you souls dwelling, incorruptible, in corruptible flesh. It is necessary for you to experience the positive and the passive sides of purity and action in order that purity may teach action and action, purity.

And so all who have sex need to know that their attributes are designed to help each other. You have been made for your fellow man and yet as souls you are sons, not male sexually, but, rather, in the sense of your laws of inheritance, full inheritors, as first sons are, of the Creator of all things, almighty God.

Know your son-ship, whomever you might be, and do not be beguiled by the seeming differences in body, attitude and understanding.

We seek to bring you peace, and yet we know that you shall find your own peace in your own time. We wish for you peace, 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.

2022-11-20

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on creation of a new paradigm:

Creation of a new paradigm

“Insofar as you have entered into this conscious development of yourself and your creation, you work not only for yourself but on the level of planetary energy. The situation is not that what you think becomes something others think. It is that the vibration which supports your work radiates as would the light of a lighthouse shining out across the dark and stormy sea.

As you allow your light and your universe to shine, you are, in your beingness, fulfilling one of your deepest purposes: you are changing and shifting consciousness at the planetary level. We would emphasize that, at this level of perception, we are not speaking of those things which can be pointed to and spoken of in words. We are talking about the shift of a point of view. The work you do on yourself is sufficient and more than adequate in terms of how you may affect the consciousness of planet Earth. Change yourself and you change the world. That is how powerful you really are.” Q’uo, February 11, 2007

In this quote Q’uo gave each Player the means by which to be part of the new paradigm that is ever approaching upon planet Earth as we move into the fourth density of love and understanding. According to those of Ra the fourth-density energies have been moving into our Earth’s energy fields since just before World War II. As time has gone on these energies are more intense and give each person on Earth the opportunity to increase their level of seeking the truth and serving others. The way to be part of this great shift in personal and planetary consciousness is to simply seek to do the work that you came here to do. Each seeker has made pre-incarnative choices that are designed to shift the point of view ever more clearly and consciously to that of the open heart and unconditional love.

If you have any doubt about what that work might be, go within in meditation and seek the guidance of your higher self, your guides, the Creator within, and your own subconscious mind. There is so much inner help available that would love to see you succeed in finding your life’s purpose. And then watch what synchronistic opportunities, people, and intuitive hunches come your way. Seek and ye shall find!

As Players are able to realize the open heart and the Creator of Love within, they are changed forever into beings powerful enough to change the world in some degree. Every one of us has this potential, and we can activate it into all-compassionate love as we continue to exercise our will and faith that such is possible. As more and more seekers open their hearts in all compassionate love they double and redouble and continuously redouble their effect on the world around them. As Gandhi said, they “become the change that they wish to see in the world,” and in so doing change the world.

In this quote Q’uo gives us some suggestions as to how we can help a new paradigm to manifest on Earth:

It is usually in times of difficulty and challenge that people become ready to wake up to a different way of thinking. The shock of the chaos that you have been experiencing in your business and economic world has been a wakeup call for many and the inconveniences, my brother, continue. People who have been sleeping are now vulnerable to a new way of thinking, a new paradigm. The old one clearly does not work. And you can, with every fiber of your being, enter into the moments of your life in such a way as to share the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. What you share, my brother, you need first to experience and so part of that which we would encourage you to focus upon is silence.

Silence seems to be an absence of sound. Yet in actuality silence is the medium necessary for information to flow from the energies and essences of spirit into your waking consciousness. It is powerful. We do not encourage a sudden immersion in silence but rather the putting of the toe in the water, shall we say, five minutes here and five minutes there. Yet we would encourage you to do this frequently so that you keep moving back to the silence that offers you your most powerful awareness of the infinite Creator.

It is necessary to avail yourself of the Creator’s vibration, which you may do at any time that you fall into the silence with the intention of seeking the one Creator. That which comes to you in that state of silence may not be anything of which you are aware consciously. However, you may trust that you are receiving information that will expand and transform you. And you, each of you, by your energy, your essence, your characteristic vibration, have that wonderful capacity to encourage and support the awakening of others. Q’uo, March 5, 2011

Q’uo suggested that it is now obvious on planet Earth that our old ways of doing things are no longer working as a means by which the population of Earth can move forward into the fourth density of love and understanding. Therefore, the time and the people of Earth are now ripe for being able to accept a novel approach to how the life may be lived in a higher state of consciousness. This novel approach is for each conscious seeker of truth to share more and more of the love and light of the one infinite Creator on a daily basis with all other entities.

Then Q’uo suggested that the key to sharing the love and light of the Creator more effectively is to enter into the silence of meditation. Q’uo said that this technique is so powerful and effective that they recommended that we go slowly into this silence, just a few minutes at a time, but that we do it often so that we become able to use the silence to increase our awareness of the Creator and then information and inspiration will come to us in a manner that will “expand and transform” us. Then, having experienced this expansion of our own being we will be able to help awaken more and more people to this transformation into a new paradigm. This entire process is much like sowing seeds of love and light all around us and then being able to see this love and light grow until a new paradigm of higher consciousness becomes available to the population of Earth, and we all move forward into the fourth density of love and understanding.

This afternoon I was invited to be on a zoom meet with Daniel Hodapp and his Law of One Study Group based in Berlin. We shared a question and answer session, and many good questions were asked about the balancing process, sexual energy exchanges, the harvest, how to know the self, meditation, Maldek and Bigfoot, and many others. We will very likely get together again in the future to have another session where we can share our spiritual journeys.

Tuning Your Channel With Love

I am of that principle you have called holy, and I greet you in the holy, divine consciousness of the love of Jesus Christ.

This instrument always asks us, after challenging us in the name of Jesus Christ, “Am I now tuned to channel?” And many times we ask the instrument to tune just a bit more. Then that which we have to say may flow effortlessly, freely and abundantly, as is the nature of love itself.

Each of you may ask, “Am I ready to channel?” For each of you moves through the day with the potential to channel the spirit of the living God in Christ. Each of you, by turning again and again to love, is tuned by love, hollowed by love and thus made a channel through which light and joy may flow.

We do not ask that you gaze upon the outer world without noticing its many seeming imperfections. We ask only that your strength of faith be enough to turn from the evidence of limited gaze and seek always that consciousness which awaits within. Thus may you become ever stronger as faith begets faith within you.

We leave you within the mighty hand which cradles all things with love. Peace be with you, 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.

2022-11-19

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on stewardship of the tribe of humankind:

Stewardship of the tribe of humankind

Your people have banded together in spiritually oriented groups whose goals are to serve the Creator by serving each other. The tribe of humankind is more and more awakening to the possibilities of the evolution of the spirit. And this increasing desire to serve has brought people together into groups that respond to the less fortunate developments upon your planet with the balm of their light and their prayers and their loving thoughts. We indeed thank those who are engaged in such groups and who are proactively sending light and love to all those places and all those entities who need the balm of that light and that love. Q’uo, March 19, 2011

The tribe of humankind is made up of all the entities who now live within the third density on planet Earth. Most entities on Earth are not consciously aware that such a tribe exists or that they are part of it. But Q’uo reminded us that many people on Earth are consciously aware of their being part of the tribe of humankind and seek to advance the evolution of the spirit in each person on Earth by being of service to them. Just as Ra said that “those who together seek shall far more surely find,” many people who are consciously aware of being members of the tribe of humankind are forming groups to work together to send their light and love to those on Earth who need that light and love to deal with destructive weather patterns, disease, oppression by authoritarian governments, war, and hunger. This type of spiritual work is enhanced by those forces of light which work from the inner planes as in the magical sense and answer the call of those who seek to aid people in need.

In the following quote Q’uo spoke to the way we most effectively can be of service to others:

Serving someone is not necessarily pleasing the entity. Serving someone is not necessarily doing anything to, with or for an entity. Serving someone is fundamentally the awareness that you and the person you are serving are one entity, united, singular and absolutely equal. Rejoicing in the apparent differences, a servant of the light relates to other selves as “themselves,” knowing that the self and the other-self are a certain kind of entity, citizens of eternity, dwellers beyond time and space, within a universe that is as wide as infinity and as small as the interior of the human heart.

Indeed, may we say that from our perspective, the universe lies within each of your hearts and all the stars and all the galaxies actually reside within. So as you sit upon your blanket and gaze at the outward stars, you are also gazing within at precisely the same view. That which lies within you is infinity, blessing, grace and the infinite Creator whose consciousness is all that there is.

Service is bound up in the knowing of this relationship and this nature so that when one who is a servant of the light and of the Godhead principle, shall we say, gazes upon an other self, no matter what that self is asking, the basic service is the connection of unity without judgment of any kind but with absolute faith that this entity is a spiritual entity and is to be honored, loved, respected and treated as a spiritual entity.” Q’uo, May 4, 2003

Q’uo made sure that we understand that our service to and stewardship of another person within the tribe of humanity is based upon the fact that we are one with that person and the Creator within us both. We should begin any such service with this basic recognition of our unity, and then we can rejoice in our seeming differences as equal portions of the one Creator, containing the infinity of galaxies, stars, and planets within us. When this type of a foundation has been laid within our minds and hearts, as we set about being of service, we are then functioning within the true reality of our being, and we let any service flow from us as is asked of us as clearly and cleanly as a crystal-clear river of love bubbling forth from our hearts.

This means of preparing ourselves for service to others may seem too abstract for the normal type of service that most people are used to offering. But I believe that it is a most helpful frame of mind and heart to experience before we undertake the mundane nature of any service to another person. Giving service just to be chalking up points on the fifty-one percent service to others threshold needed for Harvest seems like a rather lackluster exercise without at least some measure of the larger picture that Q’uo painted in their quote above. Seeing all as the One in the infinity of our beings and letting our service flow forth as a river of unconditional love is the work of the Player on the Enhanced Game Board of life.

This afternoon I went to visit my friend, Connie, who lives in a care home in Southern Indiana. We always start our visit, after she has had lunch, with a little cake and ice cream. Eventually I read to her from Archangels and Ascended Masters by Doreen Virtue. We found some very inspirational material there today. It is always good to see Connie and to appreciate how she is able to live with the right side of her body paralyzed from strokes three years ago. She is such a sweet and strong soul.

Loneliness

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

You gaze at the day with eyes askance and skate about upon the surface of your consciousness as though moving your hand across the skin of an orange. Yet deep inside you, you ache with loneliness because you have not sought to live within the depth of the present moment of life. You have not acknowledged your nature.

Peel back, then, that thick skin of happenstance which is the continuum of your day and see your true nature in the seeds of Godhead nestled within the meat of your humanity. For the Creator has made you in His image, and, as you are consciousness, just so this consciousness cannot be anything other than the Creator.

May you search for and touch the seeds of your inner essence this day and each day. Thus shall surface activity resonate with inner meaning. Love and the consciousness of love bless all circumstance.

We leave you in the comfort of joy and the perfect peace of love, 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.

2022-11-18

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 102 quote today comes from Chapter Seven and the section on living the proactive choice, the stewardship of the planet:

Living the Pro-Active Choice

Stewardship of the planet

“There is a karmic energy within many of your peoples which comes from actions in other lifetimes which resulted in making third-density environments uninhabitable. Therefore, the karma is involved in restitution and stewardship of planet Earth. And there are many people among your tribes all over the globe who feel a tremendous love for the planet itself and a desire to heal it. We would encourage this line of thinking, for truly all is one and your planet is a part of you.

As you move into the future, realize that part of your job has to do with radiating the love and light of the infinite Creator. And another part of it may well have to do with working with whatever energies that are about you in your natural, everyday environment, to attempt to become better stewards of that which is around you. What is your environment? How can you interact with it lovingly? How can you create islands of peace and joy so that when you enter the door to your home you are entering a sacred place? If you perceive of the Earth as a sacred place, what shall you do to clear the moneylenders out of the temple? We leave this to your consideration.” Q’uo, March 19, 2006

The entities from Mars and Maldek that are on Earth now are hopeful of becoming better stewards of Earth than they were of their previous island homes in space. The feeling of the group karma and the need to make restitution for previous errors is a subconscious driving force for their current incarnations that they hope will bubble up into their current incarnations and allow a more loving attitude to develop for our Mother Earth. We can hope that the pain of past mistakes is balanced by partaking in the growing current of concern for how to become better stewards of Gaia.

In the above quote Q’uo gave us sound advice that we can move most effectively into the future as stewards of Earth if we can remember to connect with our heart of hearts and radiate that eternal flame of love that is the consciousness of the Creator that enlivens and guides us if we but seek it. Letting our love of our Mother Earth guide us as to how we shall behave as her stewards is the most obvious way of spending our energies most effectively.

All of Gaia’s resources of wind, water, air, soil, and humanity are interconnected in the most basic sense to create a perpetual system of mutual survival and growth. If we can simply focus in our meditations, conversations, and actions on how to help this unified system of energies operate most effectively, that flame of love will be a faithful guide and sustaining force. We can begin in our own homes and gardens and expand outwardly into our communities and our country to do what so many now are advocating: becoming better stewards of our environment and our Earth. As for clearing the money lenders out of the temple, I am guessing that it might be most helpful if we let our flame of love shine forth to them by the example we set of how to be better stewards of Mother Earth and invite them to join us in this dance.

In the following quote Q’uo speaks of another level of stewards of planet Earth:

The guardians of your planet are a group, some of whom are inner planes entities and some of whom are Confederation entities. There is a rotation of those who are responsible for planet Earth at any one time but a constant number of those who guard and keep stewardship of the planet, its people, and its resources, and by that we do not mean the kind of natural resources of which your peoples general think when they say the word “resources,” but rather we speak of the metaphysical resources of the planet as it moves through its own ascension process, shall we say. Q’uo, April 1, 2006.

Besides seeing the population of Earth as having a role to play in being stewards of Earth, Q’uo said that there are beings within the inner planes of our planet and also members of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the One Infinite Creator who work in various combinations at different times to serve as stewards of the resources of planet Earth and her population. Q’uo also said that the type of resources these inner plane entities are dealing with are those of a spiritual nature which will aid our Mother Earth in her ascension into the fourth density of love and understanding. This is a type of stewardship that comes from what you might call unseen hands and hearts to help our third-density efforts to serve as stewards of Earth.

In the following quote Ra mentions the inner plane entities and their duties:

7.9 Questioner: I have a question here, I believe, about that Council from Jim. Who are the members, and how does the Council function?

Ra: I am Ra. 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.

It makes sense that members of the Council of Saturn would also take part in making an effort to aid our Mother Earth in increasing her well being and that of her population as well. At every level of Earth’s being she and her population are part of the unity of the One Infinite Creator through the power of Love which created the creation and the Light which is the manifestation of the creation.

This morning I finally finished cleaning up the leaf dust that came from my effort to clean the leaves out of the front yard. I simply raked the remaining leaf dust into piles and shoveled them into a wheel barrow which I then dumped into the pet cemetery. Eventually there will be a lawn service crew that will come here to clean all of the leaves out of the pet cemetery and around the fish pond.

This afternoon I did my first weight lifting and speed walk since my hip surgery. My surgeon suggested that I use a cane on my speed walk, and that seemed to work very well. It continues to feel really good to be getting back into my normal rhythms of how to live my day.

The Face Of God

Greetings in the love of Christ. I am the spirit of the consciousness of love which is Christ’s self, in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

Whatever we would say this day must turn upon the face of God, for we find in this instrument’s mind a focus far from that face. And we question the efficacy of such concentrated efforts at separation from the source of life and health.

Do you burn with shame at your transgressions? Far more did the man known as Jesus burn with shame at the iniquity of His nature, for He was given the perfect consciousness of Christ and all the material of mind and body which belongs to the illusion of the world. What pangs he felt because of His angers, His pride, His sarcasm, His coldness, and His cowardice! Truly He condemned Himself many, many times. For His was the painful knowledge of perfection and the equal awareness of the absolute imperfection of all that partakes of illusion.

Yet if He burned in shame, He burned well for the face of His Creator, His Father, and His source. And so should each be zealous, not for the death that lies in perceived transgression but in the new life which comes from focusing upon the face of the Creator.

The face of the Creator is pure and creative love and in love there is eternal, perfect and unfailing redemption, freedom from the memory of mistakes and an entrance into a new life unbesmirched by any past. Indeed, this is the nature of each moment. One who focuses upon sin denies redemption. And it is needless to do so.

Seek always the face of God. And offer to that face, to that presence, to that consciousness the precious gift of your agony. May you who think yourself sinful be healed of pride, for you are not unique.

May you be healed by the seeking of the face of God.

Peace be with you 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.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote is from Chapter Seven and the concept of interaction between systems:

Interaction between systems

Therefore, you are spiritual beings dwelling in a material and physical world. Everything that is at the center of your being calls out for the Creator and sees life from the point of view of spirit. Yet, you have been brought into a culture which encourages precisely the opposite bent of thought. Your culture encourages you to release thoughts of spirituality in favor of thoughts of functionality, economics, socialization, doing what is expected, and so forth. These two energies are a dynamic that are with each entity within third density to one extent or another for his entire incarnation.” Q’uo, May 6, 2007

Q’uo reminded us that we are spiritual beings that are living in a material world. All the concerns that we have for that physical world, in order to be most helpful to that physical world, need to be fruit of our spiritual journeys which sees all of the creation as one thing: the One Creator. In this way we may more effectively bring our inner fire of love to bear as the framework in which we see humanity, weather, wind, water, and our planet itself all linked together as energetic expressions of the One Creator. So if we wish to coordinate an interaction between all these systems—and any others as well—we might ask ourselves questions such as “How would love function most effectively in this system?” “How would love be manifested in aiding this system to function for the welfare of all?” “What is keeping love from being expressed in this system?” These are questions best pondered in our hearts in contemplation, meditation and prayer.

In the following quote Carla encouraged us to remember that we are all one and what we do affects all systems, people, and the Earth itself.

“Whatever we do, whatever we live in the world to add to its beauty and decrease its suffering, helps. Some of the outer ways of serving others take a degree of toughness which many awakened spirits may not have. If we identify ourselves with those sensitized souls and find ourselves shrinking from committee, caucus and protest, then let us resolve instead to develop our ability to think and envision globally, to see ourselves as one planet, one folk, one population. We are the people of Earth. It is up to us to give to the Earth our song of being and of love, in hopes of fulfilling our service to the planet and benefitting all people. Let us place and keep peace within our hearts daily, and invest faith in the positive future of humankind as we move through this end time, where a new world is being made within us and within our planet. May we sing with the grass, the wind and the stars, of love and light and unity.” Carla L. Rueckert, A Wanderer’s Handbook, pg. 472

Carla said that we can choose to be of service to humanity and Mother Earth in either outer or inner ways. Outer ways of working politically, socially, or economically may not appeal to the spiritual seeker of truth because it is so easy to get lost in the mundane world and its many seemingly separating ways of accomplishing the goals of aiding our planet and all people in achieving harmonious solutions to problems like global warming, homelessness, poverty, health care for all, immigration, equal representation at all levels of government.

I was most inspired by Carla’s inner ways of service to humanity and Mother Earth. She emphasized that there is a new Earth being made within us as we keep our hearts open in love and have faith in the process of the evolution of humanity into a social memory complex that can move into the fourth density of love and understanding. This is the goal of all positive third-density seekers of truth throughout the universe. Once we have made that Choice to be of service to others we have made the first steps into unity with all whom we serve. Each day brings us closer and closer to this goal.

This morning I took Mr. Mush to the vet to have the abscess area on his chin looked at. Almost all the fluids are gone from this area, so I need to keep using a warm moist cloth to dampen and loosen the dead skin there so new skin can grow back. The vet also discovered a growth inside Mush’s mouth that might be another abscess, or it could be cancer. I will bring him back to the vet next Monday for an X-ray to determine what this growth is.

Rise Up Today

I am the spirit of the consciousness of love in the vibration which comforts this instrument. I greet you in the name of that love and in the Christhood that is the birthright of all.

I ask those of you with stubborn and resilient hearts to rise up, not only this day but every day, realizing the morning of your strength, the noon of your eagerness, the evening of your peace and the nighttime of your content, dwelling in the house of the Lord.

I ask you to rise up and become citizens of the kingdom for which you yearn, that you may transform each perception of the mundane that comes before you into that of the heavenly. For this you must gird your loins and put on the battle armor of a caring and redemptive warrior.

May you go forth to wage peace everlasting. Amen.

2022-11-16

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on water:

Water

“Water is that aspect or element of the creation which contains the sacred energies of the Archangel Gabriel. Water holds gifts and powers that move from the simplest physical observations to the most abstruse and occult applications of spiritual principles. But the central gift of water is its acceptance of the impressions of consciousness. Water can be magnetized to hold pure emotion. Consequently, water is a very magical element, a crystal that can be solid, liquid or gaseous, and yet is a crystal in terms of the way that it can hold ideas, thoughts and emotions.

[. . .]

Tend your everyday self to thoughts of thankfulness, thanksgiving, praise, appreciation and joy. Remember how powerful you really are and impress your own body with the fire of your love. Let that love do its healing and organizing work within your physical body.” Q’uo, April 2, 2006

Q’uo described water as a “sacred energy” (along with fire, air, and earth) and then eloquently provided a magical description of the nature of water which can be seen as a crystal whether it is solid, liquid, or gas. Just as a crystal in jewel form can be charged to hold a certain vibration or desire, so can water be charged or “be magnetized to hold pure emotions.” An example of this is what Ra had to say about the water in the chalice that Don and I would charge with our love so that Carla could drink it after the session was over and be revitalized as Ra mentioned in 1.13:

The charging of the water is done by those present placing their hands over the glass and visualizing the power of love entering the water. This will charge that very effective medium with those vibrations.

In the last paragraph of Q’uo’s quote they applied the nature of water to our human bodies which are at least sixty percent water. Our thoughts and emotions impress every cell of our body with their nature, whether they be of difficult and disharmonious vibrations or purely positive vibrations. Q’uo strongly recommended that whenever possible we use the feelings of praise, thanksgiving, joy, and especially our love, to imbue the water within our physical body with these life-giving and healing emotions. The power of our love can imbue water with its creative and healing power. Ra went even further when they said:

Your own nature is water in that you as mind/body/spirit complexes are easily impressed and moved. Indeed, this is the very fiber and nature of your journey and vigil in this density: to not only be moved but to instruct yourself as to the preferred manner of your movement in mind, body, and spirit.” 88.23

In this statement Ra suggested that there is a special quality of water that allows us to determine how we wish to live our lives. This is possible because our “nature is water”. This suggests that at the very deeps of our soul we are fluid, liquid, malleable, and able to create changes in our consciousness at will.

With all of these magical qualities of water in mind, I would think that the waters upon the deeps of our oceans, lakes, and rivers could also carry emotions of the mass consciousness of humanity within them as surely as the soil of Earth also absorbs these same emotions. The health of the population of the planet could well be reflected in the water that flows, like blood through our veins, around the circulatory system of Mother Earth and further reflects the health or disease of humanity. Just as each of us can help to heal disease and sustain health by the “fire of our love” projected into our bodies, so can humanity project its distress into Mother Earth’s bodies of water thereby increasing the reflection of anger and separation that has become the primary metaphysical manifestation of humanity. In turn, each of us can also imbue any body of water on Earth with our joy, praise, thanksgiving, and especially with our love as a kind of spiritual remedy for the ills of our planet.

This morning I attempted to finish the project of removing the leaves from my front yard that I began a couple of days ago. First, I filled six garbage cans with leaves and set them beside the driveway for yard waste pickup Thursday. The I used my big mower to crunch the leaves in the direction of the pet cemetery on the other side of the driveway. I also used my backpack blower to do the finer work of guiding the leaves in the proper direction. However, I was unable to finish the project as it had been snowing the whole time I was working, and the moisture turned my leaf dust to a consistency that did not want to be blown. So I finished my work today by cleaning my mower and putting it away in the garage for the season.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

Surrender Your Daily Schedule

I am the voice of the Son of Man that speaks to the world today. I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love that is the consciousness of Jesus the Christ.

Whatever you feel that you have before you this day, we offer this suggestion to you: release it now into the hands of that Almighty Father which watches over each thought and each moment of your life.

For events may fall unexpectedly and meanings and nuances may be lost if, in your mind, you know already what the day will bring.

Keep your ears open and your eyes wide and, most of all, your mind and your heart alert, for things are not always what they seem and the spiritual lessons gained by those whose ears are open, whose eyes can see, and whose heart can understand are very great.

The Comforter is with you and will aid in releasing, seeing with new eyes, hearing with new ears, understanding with cleaned and blessed hearts. Surrender your trust to the Creator of all things, to the lover of your soul, to the source of your being.

Allow love and power to move within you, through you and out into the world, knowing it is not your doing after all, not your schedule but the righteous schedule, the rhythmical and right action of a soul working together with the Comforter.

We leave you in the peace and the joy of that surrender, of that faith and that love, 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.
