I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from September 18, 1994:

The question today has to do with the concepts of anger and sorrow since they seem to be so common to our experience. We’re wondering if there’s any good way of opening ourselves and allowing the processes of anger and sorrow to pass through, to be broken by the experience, and to be healed so that afterwards we are stronger, or wiser, or more loving, or will somehow benefit from having had this experience. Could you talk to us about anger and sorrow?

(Carla channeling)

Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those known to you as Q’uo. And we offer this circle our thanks and blessing for allowing us to blend our vibrations with your own, and to be called to share our opinions with you on the subject of dealing with trouble and woe.

As always, we respectfully ask that each who hears these words employ discrimination, accepting only those thoughts which ring true to you and allowing all others to pass by, for we would not wish to create a stumbling block by sharing our mere opinion. We, like you, make mistakes and share with you as fellow seekers after truth, not as those who are in authority.

In order to speak of this subject, we must back up and begin from the general standpoint, looking at the whole being and its purpose as seeker in experiencing incarnation in this third density of yours at this particular time. As it is the latter portion of the cycles before the phenomenon this instrument calls the coming of the New Age, all—we correct this instrument—many of those who are seeking at this time are those who have by seniority of vibration been given the opportunity of incarnating at a time when both the positive polarity and the negative polarity are attempting to increase the intensity of their distortions toward service to self, for positive entities and service—we correct this instrument—service to others for the positive entities and service to self for the negatively polarizing entities.

In this environment both the positive and the negative of polarization shall naturally seem more extreme and so it is that within your culture at this time there are many whose seeking of the truth is outstanding and whose efforts to learn the lessons of love are substantial and persistent. At the same time, those involved in seeking negative polarization are attempting in a marked manner to create negatively-polarizing situations which may express the utmost in negative orientation. Consequently, there are legions of those who think nothing of stealing, or killing, some for a holy reason, supposedly, but many for no reason except the attraction of power.

It is against this backdrop in your history that the seeking for truth now goes on upon your sphere. The rules, shall we say, have not changed but the experience is more intense for all upon your sphere. We, therefore, have the ability to speak to this circle and say that each within this circle has won through to the present incarnation by virtue of many labors of love, shall we say, done prior to the present incarnational experience. Therefore, each feels fairly strongly that the seeking of the Spirit, the seeking of the heart, the seeking for a greater understanding of Love, is properly the center of the incarnation. Each is attempting to live according to the positive path and attempting to polarize positively. Therefore, we do not have to coax any to do the work necessary to continue working on that polarization. Each has some grasp of why he or she is here—to learn the lessons love has to teach.

The questions that remain are more along the lines of wondering why it must be so confusing to seek the truth, why the Creator so often seems hidden within a situation. To sum up many thoughts—why does it have to be so hard, for the heart remembers perfect ease and harmony. Contradicting all experiences within the incarnation there lies the heartfelt feeling that the normal way to live is not available in this incarnation. The memory stubbornly persists that harmonization between people is second nature, and we say to you that, indeed, except for third density experience, harmonization betwixt any two entities is not just possible, but to some extent in positive polarity, inevitable.

The question then becomes, “Why did I leave that pleasant estate to come into this intensely difficult environment equipped only with the limited and confused biases which all seem to fall wide of the truth, so-called. What is the great goal seen that made me come here?”

Perhaps you already have the answer. You came here because you wished a challenge and because you wished to serve. The challenge for each is unique to each and was set by you before this incarnational experience. Each entity wished to take particular courses over again in the school of life, as this instrument would call it. Each wished to drive home one way of learning to love.

The question for this session was: “We’re wondering if there’s any good way of opening ourselves and allowing the processes of anger and sorrow to pass through, to be broken by the experience, and to be healed so that afterwards we are stronger, or wiser, or more loving, or will somehow benefit from having had this experience?” Q’uo began by saying that at the end of the third-density cycle many entities are incarnating according to their seniority of vibration in order to pursue the polarization of either service to others or to the self, and this would manifest for the positive entities as more giving of love and acceptance and for the negative entities as more attempts to gain power and to use it ruthlessly. Then Q’uo said that many upon the planet had labored in previous lives to share love, and in this life they were seeking the heart and the Spirit in order to polarize positively, so they wondered why is this third-density life so hard and confusing? And why did they come here? They said that the answer was that each one wanted a challenge and to serve others in a unique way in order to learn how to love. On December 19, 1993, Q’uo gave some suggestions on how we may learn how to serve others:

Yet, what does the entity hope for from the physical incarnation but the opportunity to make and remake the choice of how to serve? Unbind the mind always and ask it freely to ramble. Then each day do some reflective considering of the flavor of the day’s perceptions. By such means the material of the day is seated and works down into the roots of mind. The unexamined in life is far less likely to be used by the subconscious to teach the conscious self, so look to the perceptions. How are the biases of the seeker that you are in mind affecting the priorities which order the perceptions which are allowed into the conscious mind? Look always, when reflecting upon experience, towards ways to improve that gathering of perceptions so that there is better information given to the self which makes the choices. And always, as always, we encourage the steady, persistent, daily meditative times, be they short or long, for these meditations seat and stabilize learning and open the door into the silence which births the creation.

Now, each also wished to be of service, and that is another topic. We speak now of that entity who came here to your orb, not because it was pleasant, but because it was difficult, confused, and very dark in many cases. And because each wished to immerse the self within this difficult and baffling set of conditions so that the lessons would be enduring, deep, and thorough. Each wanted to work very hard. Now, before an incarnation the self remembers that incarnations are more difficult than they seem beforehand, but just as the student remembers the joy of learning and forgets some of the agony of change involved in learning and adopting amended ideas, so each has an element of surprise and even betrayal. Each argues to some extent with the judgment of that higher self that chose these lessons.

In addition to the services which each came to offer, there are, indeed, tools which one may use to work with one’s own grief, anger, disappointment, and rage. The first tool is the one around which we have been throwing up a structure of words to rather enclose. That reason is a stubborn faith that you came here to work, so now, let us work. The first tool, we are saying, to use when you are working with negative emotions is simply remembering who you are and why you came here, why you are here now. For there is, in each case, good reason for you to be precisely where you are. As the one known as Ra has said, there may be surprises, however there are no mistakes.

The knowledge that you, yourself, judged these lessons possible to be learned can be a cheerful knowledge to recall. Not only would the Creator not offer you more than you could bear, also neither would you, yourself, before this experience place yourself in that kind of situation. Therefore, if you are to be overwhelmed by these negative experiences, we encourage the allowing of this being overwhelmed. If there are the tears, cry them. Cry them all, and respect each drop. Respect and love those mute expressions of grief, anger, sorrow and rage. Accept the excesses of feeling that shake and seemingly hurt you. Know that these feelings are justified, that these feelings are protected, that there is time for these feelings to express. And work with the self to encourage the eventual completion of expression of the feelings involved.

We encourage each to nurture the self through these difficult times, allowing and even encouraging those tears, the raised voice, the angry motions, all the silly, childish, acting-out that is involved in being overcome by emotion. For within this opaque, deep illusion, there is no other way to complete and then balance negative emotions. The only way through the feelings of negative emotion is directly into the midst of them.

So, attempt, if you would be good to yourself, not to turn and run from painful feelings, but rather to choose a time to nurture the self and within that nurturing time alone look at, accept, and offer respect to the bruises, the hurt feelings, the pain that is going on. For these emotions, when accepted and respected, can scour and scrub much material that is ready to be taken off of one’s shoulders, emotionally speaking, and rinse those ripened, matured evidences of pain away. In many ways sorrow and its tears, anger and its loud voices, are healing to the troubled soul. The anger, the sorrow, these are not things to fear; they are experiences to go through in the way that is most true and real for each.

Then Q’uo said that we choose to incarnate in dark and difficult circumstances because they offer the opportunity to learn the lessons that we have chosen before this life in an enduring manner that gives us more opportunities to be of service. Q’uo continued by saying that one tool that we could use to deal with our grief and anger was remembering who we are and why we came here so that if we feel overwhelmed by grief or anger that we should express it with tears because they are justified by our choosing them before incarnating on Earth, and fully expressing these negative emotions will then give us the opportunity to complete and balance them. Q’uo said that we should respect and honor the painful emotions as they offer healing to our troubled soul in a way that is the most authentic for us. On November 28, 2009, Q’uo described how we may deal with painful emotions:

To ask the self to allow emotions to be refined and purified is to ask the self to walk into the fire of suffering. For if one defends against pain of an emotional type or a spiritual type, one ceases to be able to go deeper within those many, many levels of self that move into the archetypal mind. Indeed, it is through repeated experiences with such deeply painful emotions such as grief, anger, jealousy, and rage that one, oh so slowly, becomes able to bear the beauty of pure emotion.

As in all things spiritual, the paradox is that as one is able to open oneself to the pain of going deeper within one’s emotional life, one is more and more able to see, to bear, to hold, to accept the emotions of joy, bliss, and peace. For as in all of the levels and ways of understanding the one infinite Creator, the essence is always love. Consequently, the river of grief, the river of rage, all rivers whatsoever of purified emotion, lead at last into the ocean of bliss, which is the steady state of infinite Love. It is, in a way, terrifying not to defend the self.

The second tool, which may be used when these feelings are seen, is the turning to the one infinite Creator, for these feelings are taking place in an infinite creation. Within this infinite creation there is one thing that is true. That thing is Love. Love expressing as truth, as beauty, as goodness, Love expressing as mystery. It is not necessary, you see, to remain in the sea of confusion, paddling about in the frail barque of flesh that is your own upon this infinite voyage. Once the reality within the illusion is addressed, once the sorrow and anger have been owned, accepted, respected, and the entity within all that feeling nurtured, then is there wisdom in turning to praise and thanksgiving of the one infinite Creator, to turning once again to Love.

And this is not done in a way which denies all that seems imperfect, but merely setting those painful emotions into the most true version of a universe which you can find, and that is that infinity of space and time against which the troubles of a day begin to seem somewhat small. For within the self lies all that there is. The portion of the self dealing with the surface emotions within a particular incarnation is most small. It does not belie the agony felt to place it against the backdrop of infinity and see that it does not take up the entire creation, but that there is a deeper and surrounding environment which goes beyond space and time and of which each is more a native than this present Earth. Each is a citizen of infinite and eternal creation, moving into praise and thanksgiving, readjusting the point of view, biasing it towards truth and polarizing it towards service.

When the object of anger or sorrow is another, there is a type of meditation or experience this instrument would call prayer in which prayers are offered for the entity which has been catalyst for this sorrow or anger. Praying for that entity which has harmed you also reorients the deeper mind and biases the deeper mind more towards truth.

The last of the tools we shall speak of this day is the tool of the one Self. When the mind can settle upon the unity of each self with all other selves, then it can more readily be seen that each entity outside of the self is simply a mirror reflecting your self back to you. Those things which anger you are angering you about yourself within some portion of your inner, larger, self. The sorrow felt for others is sorrow felt for the self. It only seems to involve others. Taken upon the surface, this statement seems patently false. However, in the deeper sense, and certainly in the sense of working spiritually with emotions, it is true, as far as we know, that all that you see is your Self. You are in common with all that there is.

The one known as J, whom we greet for the first time today, has spoken concerning these issues and we wish to encourage this instrument to go right on with that thinking, for we feel there is much merit therein. Allow these common experiences their rhythm and their time.

Then Q’uo said that the second tool that we can use when we experience anger and sorrow is to turn within to the presence of the Love of the Creator because this is the true reality in which all of our emotions are experienced, and then we can give praise and thanksgiving to the Creator for our experiences. Q’uo went on to say that when the source of our anger and sorrow is an other self that the best way to deal with it is in prayer for that person, so they may reorient their deeper minds to the true nature of reality being the Love of the Creator. Q’uo said that the third tool that we can use to deal with difficult emotions is seeing that we are all part of the Creator, and when we look at another self’s behavior we are actually seeing the Creator mirroring back to us some facet of our own being which indicates that our spiritual work is upon ourselves. On July 23, 1989, Q’uo described in detail how the mirroring effect works:

The mirroring effect that those within the mated relationship experience is an intensification of the mirroring effect that is experienced by each entity at all times when in contact with others. It may be noted within the mind, when there is an interaction between entities, when a thought, word or deed that has been shared remains within the thoughts that you think and remains with a certain charge, shall we say, when there is a response by yourself to any thought, word, or deed of another that causes you to move from the center of your being, and causes you concern of any kind, you may notice the mirroring effect as it is generated from your own subconscious mind.

This is to say that you have before the incarnation chosen certain lessons upon which you shall apply yourself. You have therefore biased your perceptions in a manner which will allow you to see what we may call a neutral experience, or neutral catalyst, in such and such a fashion that is in accordance with your pre-incarnative choices. Thus, a number of entities may witness the same exchange of experience and respond by feeling a variety of responses. This is due to the unique nature of each entity’s pre-incarnative programming and subconscious bias.

Thus, whatever experience you share with another that leaves its mark upon your memory is one which you would do well to consider within your own meditations, to look within your own self to see what significance this experience has. Then one may, in a meditative state, look at that experience within the life pattern to note the repetition of this experience or similar experiences, and begin by this analysis to discern the deeper pattern that comprises the lesson that you are attempting at this time to learn, and which has been signaled by the experience shared with another that registered a strong emotional response in your own being.

Thus, each life pattern is unique, and the response to various stimuli or catalyst is also unique and may be observed for the impact that it has on the self.

We would at this time transfer this contact to the one known as Jim, for we find that this instrument is somewhat fatigued. We will leave this instrument at this time in thanks, love and light. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning Anna and I synchronized our computers and listened to Carla channel Ra in Session #38. We found it interesting that the third density social memory complex from the Sirius star which had evolved from trees needed to explore the concept of bellicosity to balance their constant state of meditation, and this suggested that we also would need to deal with the concept of bellicosity within ourselves in order to avoid bellicosity with others. In other words, it is the same as Jesus said to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” because you can’t love anyone else until you can love yourself.

This afternoon I was happy to have a couple of guests visit me, which were our website designer and his partner. We spent our time talking about various Law of One concepts, Carla and her channeling ability, our current experiences of the work we love most to do, gardening, and their potential countries where they finally hope to live.

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

July 15

Hollowed Out By Circumstances

I am of the principle of living love and I greet you in the full consciousness of that love.

It may seem to you that you are hollowed out by circumstances, circumstances that squeeze the life from heart and soul so that all that remains is a hollow reed.

Indeed, many times the work of the spirit contains this facet or phase, for there are times when, in order to progress in service, one must hollow out the channel of the self, removing stumbling blocks to one’s capacity for joy and life.

When the student finds the mark and imprint of love through trust and faith within these situations, then does the spirit enter more and more to make, of unhappiness, perfect peace.

We leave you in that 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, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from September 11, 1994:

In our world today it seems like most people are overstimulated with information and distractions and busyness. How can the seeker who wishes to remember the Creator do so in this kind of world today? How can we remember our harmony, our unity, and our place in the world and in the Creator?

(Carla channeling)

Greetings in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. It is a privilege indeed to share in this meditation with you and to be called to your group to discuss the subject of having time enough for the infinite Creator. We thank and bless each of you for having the desire to seek the truth and we bless each in the spiritual journey which we share with you as those brothers and sisters who have perhaps walked a bit longer on this path, but who are still pilgrims. We are not authorities, and we ask each seeker to test our words or any words against that discriminative faculty which is every seeker’s, and encourage each seeker to leave behind those thoughts of ours which do not seem useful, and take those thoughts that seem to have a resonance within. We thank each seeker for exercising this discrimination. Each seeker’s truth lies within, awaiting the rediscovery, the remembering. When your truth does come to you, this is how it feels, as if you had remembered that which had slipped your mind.

The speed at which things become old has a profound impact upon the intelligence of those who are witnesses of this phenomenon. In your far distant past things became dated and obsolete at a snail’s pace, for it took great reaches of time mechanically to explore, to come across new and strange ways. As the technology of humankind’s creation was first added to the experience of living, the globe began to shrink. Geographical distances were suddenly able to be traveled, not at the pace of the wind-driven sail, or the sturdy horse and wagon, but with motorized travel over water and land. Things began to change at a quicker pace.

Now, as each of you experiences incarnation that which is new becomes old quickly. In the atmosphere of constant change there is not the rest and relaxation available from the surroundings. The environment has become geared to the handling of constant-seeming progress, and within your culture this situation is seen to be as most beneficial. The age of information has arrived amongst your people. The seeker now routinely is aware of an enormous array of situations around the globe, aware of fires and earthquakes in far-flung places, aware of wars and rumors of war from near and far, aware of the suffering and starvation of displaced nations of peoples—aware, aware and aware.

Now that we have flattened this instrument with the horror of the present day, we shall attempt to give some pointers as to how, in this very trivia-ridden existence, it is not only possible but inevitable that the infinite Creator shall be discovered at the very heart of this tight-wound world. Each who hears these words has a universe of its own. In each seeker’s universe the center lies deeply within, opening like a flower to a mélange of sense perceptions, infinitely rich and varied, infinitely full, infinitely profound.

Within this web of sense perceptions, within this inner universe, seemingly the self is at the center and events impinge upon that self from without. The telephone rings. The mail lands upon the desk. The door opens to bring more concerns, more things into the environment. Each seeker alone is not trapped but certainly encouraged to remain within that perceptive web, seeking the infinite One as best it can.

However, the Creator’s plan for your particular illusion contains one essential adjustment to this personal world view. That adjustment is in the perceptual shape of the realization from the inside rather than from the outside that others, other selves besides the self, are those who are able to express lucidly and clearly the presence of the infinite Creator. At first the seeker is involved in the perceptions having to do with seeing the self without regard to others. As this attempt deepens, the seeker begins to collect the memories of those entities which said just the most helpful, the most correct thing in order to open the door within the heart which invites the Creator in. And we find that we become for others that same witness to the Light. Perhaps we, ourselves, might not feel like the mirror of the infinite Creator, yet another may find within what we say that encouragement and support that turns the seeker’s heart to remembrance.

The role of the seeker is often seen as an isolated, lonely role, and in many ways it is. The quest for truth places each seeker in that wilderness of spirit in which the testing and tempering of the spirit may most fruitfully take place. In this instrument’s mind is the old refrain, “You have to walk that lonesome valley by yourself. No one else will walk it for you. You must walk it by yourself.” This remains true. However, as the seeking moves forward, as we said, others seem to appear at just the right moment to offer to you that realization for which you hunger. So each becomes to each a teacher, a supporter, a strengthener.

Realizing that each person you see bears this precious gift of presence, the seeker may then begin to practice regarding those who come before the eyes as that instrument of the infinite Creator that they truly are, showing to you the deepest truths of creation implicit in the connection between self and other self. Imagine each of you upon the globe, each within the infinite reaches of its own universe, yet each able to reach across that chasm created by space and time and illusion and touch heart to heart and hope to hope, each seeker strengthening the other.

We have a simple message, and we repeat it endlessly. The goal of the seeker is, shall we say, a vibration or a state of being which is the vibration of the Creator Itself, the one great original Thought or Logos which is Love. Each seeker attempts to form that vibration of self more and more like that vibration which is infinite Love. Each movement towards that primal vibration of being is a step out of the sea of confusion which the everyday illusion offers. And as each seeker attempts to correct the many, many distortions of its own vibratory patterns, the greatest gifts that the Creator has to give are those paintings on the path which intend service to the infinite Creator and to all of those upon the planet within which you dwell.

The question for this session was: “In our world today it seems like most people are overstimulated with information and distractions and busyness. How can the seeker who wishes to remember the Creator do so in this kind of world today?” Q’uo began their response by saying that for a great period of time in our past our cultures were pretty much the same from year to year, but within the recent past the technologies of travel and communication have created a rapid increase in our daily experiences so that there is more information needing to be processed each day. Then Q’uo said that this was part of the Creator’s plan for the seeker of truth that its relationships with other seekers could provide a word or thought at the right time that revealed a portion of truth that would help it on its spiritual path, and then each seeker would become a witness of the Light for each other. Q’uo continued by saying that it is the goal of each seeker to attain the infinite vibration of the Logos, of the Love of the Creator, and the seeker accomplishes this by using its distortions of its own vibratory patterns that eventually becomes its path of service to the Creator and all other selves. On February 4, 1990, Q’uo said that we all can help each other to be of service to the Creator:

We appreciate the great desire to be of service to the Creator that you have expressed. This is a query which is asked to that being that is the Christ of all, the Christ within, that small and still voice, which, when petitioned with an whole heart, makes clear the way for the feet of clay and the heart of compassion. This clearly may be asked of any entity by any entity, and wise and careful counsel may be given by many. And yet, the response which is truly sought is that response which will fill the heart and inspire the spirit within, for each portion of the Creator exemplified by each entity within the creation is guided, most lovingly and precisely, by the voice of the Creator that speaks from that deep and still point within the heart.

So, a great resource, then, for the seeker intending to become less fettered in time is the readiness to listen to and to admit the words, the expressions and the actions of others. For you were not incarnated for yourself alone. That which has been prepared for you involves other entities inevitably. The lessons of third density revolve about other selves. This is the time of choice for each emerging, unique consciousness, and each lesson which enables the seeker to make those choices more deftly and accurately involve relationship with others.

Perhaps the simplest way to attempt to remember that entities are first spiritual is to practice gazing at another person and seeing for a split second the reality of that entity, for that entity is the one infinite Creator with a few rough edges that a millennium or three might work a little more magic upon. Each of you is as a hologram of the infinite One. This is the deepest realization. Yet at the point at which that realization is accepted, at that point the seeker no longer carves out great boundaries between the self and other selves. The seeker fully open to the possibilities of third density knows the great value of other entities.

The second way in which the mind may be, shall we say, encouraged to find that awareness of the Creator is the meditation, the contemplation, the prayer. We are aware that each does attempt to spend time with the infinite Creator within the daily round. We commend each for this effort and encourage its continuance. It is as though there were a hunger within which nothing within the illusion can satisfy. Those who are not on a spiritual path, those who are happy with life as it is, gaze at the seeker in amazement wondering why, in the midst of a happy life, this seeker must spend so much time and energy upon that which does not even make the entity more happy. For certainly the spiritual quest does do many things, but it certainly shall not make you happy.

To explain to this non-seeking person the reason for discontent is difficult, yet to one to whom this spiritual hunger has been awakened lies the responsibility of foraging for something to eat spiritually, some wisdom or intelligence that informs. Where to find such information? My children, it will not surprise you to hear us say that it is not in the noise of your culture but, rather, in the silence of your meditations. That listening within which meditation encourages is the activity which allows food and drink to come to that spiritual self within. The more times during your daily routine that you can find a way to work in just a moment or two of meditation, this is a helpful thing.

This instrument, for instance, has worked in a school where the bell marks the changing of the period, and when that bell sounded the instrument’s effort was, for one split instant, remembered. Each of you has within the day certain repeated experiences, the ringing of the bell, the ringing of the telephone, the marking of the hour by a chiming clock. Whatever it is that you find within the environment to use as a key or trigger, we suggest that the seeker target this and train the self to use these found moments to turn once again to the infinite perfection of the mystery that is love.

The third thing that shall teach each more and more to dwell in the presence of the infinite One is time itself, for as the experience of the incarnation mounts there comes that point wherein the seeker has experienced enough time to have become somewhat desensitized to that mechanism within which rings the tocsin of alarm. As the incarnation becomes full, it is not that maturity overtakes the seeker, but rather that the entity becomes able to care less about those things which it cannot affect. To one who is relatively unmoved by his own imperfections, to one who has begun to accept the imperfect self, is given a state of inner peace which is a healing gift. Beyond all other lessons, finally the seeker in third density grasps and accepts its own lack of perceived perfection, seeing the myriads of issues the world offers for consideration. The entity which has accepted and forgiven the self for being human has a greatly enhanced opportunity to remember the infinite One and practice Its presence.

Those who come to third density plunge from innocence into confusion. Within the brightly colored illusion which time and space have given, the seeker moves to find that infinite Love which is at its heart, moving always within utter chaos and confusion. The seeker must choose its own way. We urge each to hold out the hand more and more to life as it is on the surface, to embrace the multiplicity of the tales, the boisterous comings and goings which seem to distract and fritter away the time. For it is not that the time has sped up, rather it is that the nature that beholds that time at this moment in the ending of an old age and the beginning of a new one is more transparent to catalyst and stimuli. Each begins to see the vainness and emptiness of surface life, and each becomes more and more willing to let go of the demands to be such and such a way.

[Side one of tape ends.]

(Carla channeling)

…that things are so changed, but rather in wonder that we have done as well as we have.

Each of you is so courageous, my children. Gazing at illusion, stubbornly you know that there is an infinite Love. Oh, you who are of this stubborn faith, we bless and embrace each. As you attempt more and more to practice the presence of the infinite One use these tools as they help you. Use each other and grasp that that is appropriate. Joyfully seize those moments that you can turn for even an instant to contemplation. Rejoice in and encourage each other, for each shall show the Creator. The only question is what aspect of that Creator shall you choose to give as gift to the infinite spirits all about you? And when the time comes when the emotions and nerves are tired and worn by suffering, rest back in the strength of heart that lies within one who has suffered and affirm the perfection that shall never be sensed by the self for the self, but which is the higher truth for each.

Then Q’uo said that we all have incarnated in order to help each other along our spiritual path by the way that we interact with each other in making choices, and on some occasions, if we take the time to do so, we can see the face of the Creator in any entity and begin to see the great value of relationships with each other. Q’uo continued by saying that meditation, contemplation, and prayer are also ways to discover more about how we can become aware of the Creator within us that satisfies our hunger to know more of our spiritual nature and allows food and drink to come to the spiritual self within us.  Q’uo went on to say that another way to discover more about the Creator within us is the process of experience over time that allows us to accept and forgive ourselves just as we are so that we remember the infinite One and practice Its presence. Then Q’uo said that it is the confusion of the illusion of third density that can eventually give us the opportunity to find infinite Love in our heart that helps us to find our way through the illusion. They went on to say that it is the time of change into a new dimension that has caused catalyst to be more transparent, and we can see the emptiness of the surface illusion and become more able to let go of our demands upon ourselves to be a certain kind of way.  Q’uo completed their response by saying that we should have faith that there is an infinite Love, that we should rejoice and encourage each other to practice the presence of the Infinite One, and then we can choose what gifts we shall give to those entities that we share the third density with so that we can endure any suffering together by experiencing that higher truth that each is the Creator.  On June 19, 1994, Q’uo affirmed the aid of practicing the presence of the Creator within us:

We encourage each to practice the path of joy, to practice the presence of the one infinite Creator. But we say to you that most of you shall, again and again, fall away from joy into comfort, happiness and eventual sorrow. And we say that it is well that these sorrows then occur, for this is that which teaches at this particular stage of awareness. The primary choice, we say again, is toward the absolute, the infinite and eternal as opposed to all things temporary and illusory.

We encourage each seeker to practice this joy as much as possible within the framework of an authentically lived life which grapples with the sorrows of an incarnation. Encourage and exhort each other to practice the presence in all ways which are meet and appropriate, one to another. Encourage the self, whenever the mind may turn to awareness of self, to turn again and again to that center within in which all things reside, abide, and have their being. Give thanks always and for every blessing, including the most unimaginable loss and pain. Rejoice in hardship and suffering. And let your heart be glad in life, in death. Then you shall not be troubled with sorrow. But, dear ones, if you cannot achieve this state of vibration, know that this is no more than what was expected for third density. You now walk in a shadow land where nothing is what it seems. Within each atom of this shadow land resides an infinite, absolute reality. The journey takes no time, no space. The answers lie within. Do not begrudge your sorrows their place, for the path of joy does await.

As always, we again encourage each to lay aside any thought of ours that is not useful. We are most happy that we have had this opportunity to be with you. How we have looked forward to this event. We would like to transfer the contact to the one known as Jim at this time. We leave this instrument in love and in light. We are those of Q’uo.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and I greet each again in love and in light through this instrument. At this time it is our privilege to ask if there might be any further queries to which we might respond. Is there another query at this time?

Carla: I have put aside channeling for the last two months because I felt I needed a break. It’s good to be back. Could you evaluate taking a break? Is there a better or best way to remain fluent in the channeling work while the actual channeling practice is being given a rest?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We are unaware of any technique by which an instrument might maintain the fluency while resting from the practice. However, we are very well aware of entities’ needs for the variety of experience that taking a break from one’s work will provide. We are aware of how intense the experience which entities such as yourselves encounter each day, and we do recommend that you do take those times of rest and peace which allow you to become reinvigorated, as the newness of your experience becomes, shall we say, seated in your pattern and is then able to alter the flow of energy in a fashion which becomes refreshing rather than becoming more of a weight to bear.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you. I always yearn for a closer connection to a spiritual life, and it seems that we always fall short of what we desire in that regard. And you are saying that we always have that connection and we just need to open to it. Could you comment on that?

I am Q’uo. It is that feeling of falling short that is both the blessing and the curse of the seeker, my sister. For the desire to move even closer and move in more purity in the work that you do is that which allows the progress in the work, yet can also become the source of the over-critical self. Thus, we salute the desire to increase one’s purity and purpose of work. Yet we suggest the gentle hand as the estimation and criticism is given to one’s work by oneself.

Is there another query, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you.

Q’uo: We thank you, my sister. Is there another query at this time?

[Pause]

I am Q’uo, and we thank you all for your kind words. Since there is no further query we shall take this opportunity to express our great gratitude for allowing our presence in your circle of seeking. We would, again, ask that you take only those words which we have spoken which ring of truth to you, leaving behind all others. We do not wish to become a stumbling block to any but would walk with each upon the journey in whatever way is possible, for together we seek and reveal to each other the one Creator. At this time we shall take our leave of this group and this instrument, leaving each as always in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning I ran a couple of errands with my first stop being at the PNC Bank to transfer some money from my checking account to my savings account. My second stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some super glue. When I got home I went around the yard with my trimmer and trimmed the areas where my big mower, Venus, won’t be able to cut around when I cut the grass this afternoon.

This afternoon I cut the grass in the yard and then I used the backpack blower to blow all walkways clean.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The Q’uo quote comes from July 14, 1994:

The question this morning has to do with the difference between the Tree of Life, mentioned in Genesis of the Bible, and the Tree of Knowledge, that is also mentioned in Genesis. We would like to know what part these play in our spiritual evolution and any information Q’uo could give us about them.

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are most privileged to be called to your group for this working and wish especially to greet the one known as S. All of those within the principle of Q’uo send many greetings. As always, we ask that our thoughts be treated not as those of authority, but rather those of a fellow seeker.

When one is investigating the resonances of racial symbology or ethnic symbology, one must be prepared to treat the symbol or symbols involved upon more than one level. Both the Tree of Life mosaic, or figure, and the Tree of Knowledge figure are masterpieces of condensed, yet articulated, concept. The dynamic betwixt these two is an integral part of their nature. These symbols open far better to the heart of the mystic than to the tongue or pen of the intellectual or scholar. However, insofar as words can attempt to explicate these symbols, we are glad to comment.

The Tree of Life is a cabalistic configuration which, in general, describes a universe or cosmology wherein only the tiniest or end part of reality, as such, is in any way visible while the seeker is within the valley of birth and death, that is, in the body of flesh. The great preponderance of this reality is firmly rooted within the concept of heaven or ultimate reality. Within this figure, this tree may be seen to be then upside down as far as mortal eyes might behold, that tip of the tree being the entire physical universe as seen by mortal eyes. The unity of this symbol is preserved through the creation of a harmonious array of dynamics which can loosely be called male and female or positive and negative. Within this system, then, all is harmonized into a unity, so that even that tiny tip of reality which is the physical universe has, as in a holograph, a complete idea of reality. Each tiny spark of this limitless reality, then, contains the pattern of the whole and unity is preserved throughout the figure’s dynamic system of archetypes.

Over against this figure is brought to bear another complex conceptual figure which is thoroughly divided, clearly delineated, just as the figure either/or is clearly delineated. Within this figure is the concept of eternal brokenness. This figure sees differences and claims this difference. It sees the either and the or as having no resolution in harmony. Thus, this Tree of Knowledge is a figure betokening that activity within the time/space portion of the incarnate seeker which demands to know which of two things is preferable. This is the figure encouraging entities to make choices between opposites.

Within this system it is expected and desired that the seeker play judge and decide, or deem, what is appropriate and what is not: hot over cold, or cold over hot, light against darkness, attraction against radiance, and so forth. The “evil” then, which is seen within this figure by one defending the Tree of Life, is the implicit suggestion within this figure that seekers can relate to dynamic opposites only by choice. This truth is, shall we say, one which effects only the third-density experience, that experience which is of life lived beyond that veil of forgetting. In this human state of forgetting, then, the figure of the Tree of Knowledge holds sway, and entities must indeed play God, choosing right from wrong, choosing positive from negative, making those choices which define and increase polarity towards the goal of graduation from this universe steeped in illusion, in which there is an operant. . . either/or.

If the entity were, then, to move beyond the illusion of incarnate third-density life still thinking that it must choose, then, indeed, the Tree of Life would be shaken, for this overriding symbol holds the true nature of reality, if we may misuse this term. Perhaps we may say that the lesson here is that as the Tree of Knowledge figure suggests, seekers do indeed have a quest for truth, that truth which does choose, yet within these choices, there needs to be within the entity’s heart that portion which praises, gives thanks and blesses that mystery which lies behind and beyond all that seems and configures all that there truly is.

When a seeker goes too far with the knowledge of good and evil and begins to attack and fragment the basic unity of all things, then that entity must needs, either by personal choice or by catalytic action, be made humble once again and aware of the over-arching unity of all that is. The difficulty humankind has in accepting the limits of its knowledge is amazing to us. There is much pride within the hearts of your peoples who feel that all things may be known. This pride is fatal, for within the life of the Spirit all that seems so in the world is indeed far otherwise.

The many, many spiritual writings of your peoples continually suggest that strength lies in weakness, wisdom lies in lack of knowledge, and so forth. The Tree of Knowledge is that tree, that figure, that attitude, towards the living of a life which gets the seeker started upon the road towards the acceleration of spiritual evolution. However, when that seeker has indeed begun to walk upon that dusty path, and when it has gained experience along this path, then it is that the seeker does well to remove that figure from the mind and replace it with the Tree of Life. The choices possible to make within an incarnation having to do with polarity are rather quickly done, in that it becomes easier and easier to adjudge the polarity of various responses to certain catalyst.

Beyond these choices, however, lies the true ground wherein work in consciousness is done and into that ground it is unacceptable to bring this consciousness that is divided. Once upon the service-to-others path, then, it augers well for the seeker if he chooses to observe creation as the Tree of Life suggests, the “as above, so below” of ultimate reality being implicit in this cosmology that is seen, as well as that which is unseen.

The question this morning has to do with the difference between the Tree of Life, mentioned in Genesis of the Bible, and the Tree of Knowledge, that is also mentioned in Genesis. We would like to know what part these play in our spiritual evolution and any information Q’uo could give us about them. Q’uo said that both the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life were mystical symbols with different layers of meaning that are difficult to explain in words. Then Q’uo said that the Tree of Life was a cabalistic symbol of the nature of the universe where the tip of the tree would describe the physical reality within one’s incarnation where there is the expression of the dual concepts of male and female, or the positive and the negative, where all is harmonized into unity. They said that each part of the physical universe contains the complete nature of reality which is found in the figure’s dynamic system of archetypes. Then Q’uo said that the Tree of Knowledge is a conceptual figure that reveals clear either/or choices that reflect the eternal brokenness of the life within the third density that requires choices to be made in order that graduation into the fourth density may be achieved. However, Q’uo reminded us that beyond the choices that we make it is also important to give praise and thanksgiving for the mystery that is within each person, and which has created all that there is, because one can go too far in seeing separation between that which seems good and that which seems evil, for all is truly one within the life of the Spirit. On February 28, 2009, Q’uo spoke of the life of the Spirit:

The universe and yourself within the universe are far, far different and far less concrete than meets the waking eye or the unthinking mind. Truly, each entity is held in place not by gravity, but by his own set of parameters, self-administered, and self-perpetuating. We are not saying that the physical laws of the physical universe do not exist, for they do, my brother, and to your great benefit. They create a stable illusion within which you may experience the progress of a lifetime of experience and collect and consider your experiences.

However, the inner life, the life of the Spirit within, is held in place at first by the tacit acceptance of what each other entity in the surrounding milieu accepts, and then by the perpetuation of that acceptance. This instrument uses the phrase “thinking outside the box.” Within the inner life you begin with a box which consists of all the suppositions you have accepted as true. Within this box are many systems and subsystems, all with their perpetuating energy. As you begin to loosen yourself from the suppositions with which you began your inner life, you gently and sometimes abruptly step outside the box. You are then free to the extent you are able to take advantage of this increased awareness to alter the way energy works within your particular inner world. Then the limitations of your environment are those chosen by you.

The difference between one who is unconsciously limited in the inner life and one who is consciously limited in the inner life is that the seeker who has begun to penetrate the outer illusion and who knows that he creates his reality is far more able to take advantage of those times which seem so dislocating and dreamlike, by molding that dream to match his hopes, his desires, and his intentions.

We would pause at this point to inquire if there are queries from the material which has been given. We are those of Q’uo.

S: Is it correct to assume that the Tree of Knowledge is—that we interpret [it as]—the intellect, the symbol for the intellect to get the seeker started in this density, and that the Tree of Life is the subconscious? That is, one follows the path on the Tree of Knowledge and then chooses the deeper symbols of that intellectual choice, so the seeker moves from the intellect through the subconscious in the deeper regions of the heart—and the Tree of Life is reality, and the Tree of Knowledge is the illusion.

We are those of Q’uo. My sister, this is quite correct. The Tree of Knowledge is, shall we say, the necessary evil and it is the place of those beginning the path of spiritual seeking to focus upon differences and make those great ethical or moral choices for the soul’s health and for further learning. Just as you said, when the seeker is established upon that path, then it is that the time comes when the seeker acknowledges its lack of understanding and accepts, instead of demanding clarity, that vision given to the heart alone, in which the whole of the infinite creation is felt to be imminent, though noumenal, in every instant of perceived consciousness.

May we answer further, my sister?

S: How does one balance becoming split—or is it simply that one of the initiative stages between living or seeking as completely as possible the Tree of Life—while it is still necessary to function in the world which we acknowledge. That is where I find, and perhaps then it’s just something that all seekers have to go through, as an initiative of living two distinct lives, not only physically but spiritually.

We are those of Q’uo and, my sister, indeed this is a working which continues throughout third density and into fourth and even the fifth density. The dynamic betwixt that which is manifest and that which is ultimately real is acute and continuing. Perhaps the concept of one who lives on two levels at once may be helpful. In many things there is an inner and an outer reality or way of being. The outer practices of most of the world’s religious systems are often divided into those prayers and services shared with all of the people and those prayers and services offered only by, shall we say, clergy or those of the religious life. It is the burden and the glory of those who do live a religious, spiritual, or devotional life to live on two levels at once, for the level of the outer world is, indeed, the either/or of service to self or service to others and the dynamics of that life are unforgiving. Yet still, within these outer appearances lies an inner reality which only the heart of humankind can know or experience.

The joy within this illusion you experience flows most freely when it is consciously accepted and visualized within each daily period that these levels are not contradicting each other but rather are the inner and the outer layers of that which is being experienced. When—we correct this instrument—whenever it is perceived that the seeker has focused overmuch upon the Tree of Knowledge then the seeker does well to pause momentarily in order to remember that inner reality, that inner universe and open a shuttle from that inner universe through the seeker’s own part so that while the seeker is dealing in a practical and intellectually appropriate way with either/or dynamics, yet still that seeker’s heart is open because of that vivid memory and remembrance, which is renewed each moment, of the overriding and overarching reality within, which illumines, transfigures and reconfigures the whole.

This is most difficult work, and we commend each for striving to reconcile the depths of the illusion and its dynamics with the undergirding reality, so-called.

S asked Q’uo: “How does one balance becoming split—or is it simply that one of the initiative stages between living or seeking as completely as possible the Tree of Life—while it is still necessary to function in the world which we acknowledge.” Q’uo said that S was correct in saying that one needs to be able to live the manifested life along with the spiritual life not only in this density but in the fourth and fifth densities as well. They said that this is the equivalent of living an outer life and an inner life at the same time where the outer life eventually manifests either as service to others or service to self while the inner life sees the unity of all people, and it is well if the seeker pauses from time to time, while it is dealing with the either/or dynamics of the outer reality, to open a shuttle to the inner seeking of its heart that illumines and transfigures all as whole and unified. On April 3, 1988, Q’uo said the truth of unity is whole and unified:

Where is truth? Truth is in the absolutes that shine through the relative. Truth is in the smile, the laughter and joy, the moments of kinship, the body’s intimate ecstasy in the making of physical love, the spontaneous reaction of deep compassion. And in the end, truth in an absolute sense may, to the disciplined mind and heart, become the companion that walks beside you, through whose eyes you may see anew the whole and unified life lived in love. That which is suffering is that against which the entity seeking to know love for the Creator, love for the self, and service to others may push against, may use, not as the stumbling block, but as the starting block. For each difficulty which causes suffering is that which has been arranged that some distortion concerning the essence of love within your understanding may be examined, thought about further, and perhaps revised somewhat.

Is there a final query at this time?

S: Just one. You know of the symbol of the Tree of Life that I have at home, the Indian rug. Is it—or can I transfer the archetypes of either the tarot cards or the kabbalah to this Tree, or will I need to adjust them more subjectively?

We are those of Q’uo. The figures are such that you may use them as they are. You also might find that you begin to wish that you could create your own system of relationships and interconnectiveness and leave that Indian, or any other version, to another. It is of aid to the seeker to work with these archetypes regardless of the designed interrelationships. Therefore, we encourage students of the archetypes to have the feeling of freedom to reconfigure according to the personal experience and truths of each seeker.

We, again, thank each for calling us to your session this morning. It is, as always, a most blessed chance for us to be with you and to mingle our vibrations with your own. We leave each with the utmost of love and light in the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai vasu. We are Q’uo.

This morning I went outside and weeded the Ruins Garden, the garden in the middle of the Moss Garden, and the Astilbe Garden by hand. Then I came back inside and vacuumed the first floor of the house. Then I ran a couple of errands with my first stop being at the vet to pick up some meds for Bosco. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. And the third stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some trash bags and Pepsi Zero.

This afternoon I used my backpack blower to blow the Sycamore bark and leaves out of the Moss Garden, and then I picked them up and put them in a garbage can for yard waste pickup. Then I used my trimmer to weed the Moss Garden and then used my backpack blower again to blow the weeds out of the Moss Garden.

Blame And Forgiveness

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

We would speak with you this day about blame and forgiveness.

It is a natural faculty of humankind to discriminate, discern,  and judge betwixt all manner of experience in order to make choices and decisions. This is a proper use of the tools and resources which the Father has given to all His children.

There is, however, a dark and unpleasant side to discrimination. That is discrimination practiced with regard to the actions of others upon others which one watches as a witness. Shall you, as witness, blame and find judgment?

We trust and hope that the Spirit of the living God may, by grace, open you in these trying moments to the power and consolation of prayerful attention. For in an attitude of prayerful attention it is desired only that the will of the Father be done. Thanksgiving is then given that all is, indeed, well and will be well.

These positive affirmations give a supernal peace to the witness and place those in dispute within the bright light of forgiveness and prayer. May you be an agent of peace by the power of the Holy Spirit and not an agent of blame and judgment. May you find, preserve and share the peace that does indeed pass the understanding of humankind.

It is in this peace and compassion that we leave you, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from June 26, 1994:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light. It is our privilege to greet each through this instrument and to ask if at this time there may be any further queries to which we may speak this working period.

Carla: Do you have any suggestions as to how someone who would like to work on the bloom, who would like to make some changes in the way the self expresses, could go about using the relationship between the self and the higher self, or the between incarnations self—beyond meditation?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We feel that the entity which is able to accept that which is the self in all of its detailed analysis and enumeration is one which has, shall we say, the leg up on the incarnation, for the energy of the incarnation is that which expresses itself as the seeker. The seeker who wishes to change some portion of itself is one which wishes to approximate the ideal, in most cases, more closely. We would suggest that rather than feeling that there is the possibility of changing the stripes, shall we say, that greater freedom comes to those who are able to accept the self with equanimity and to work as a full-blooded self, shall we say—that entity which realizes more of that which it is as a result of accepting that which it is. This provides a truer range of expression, for it builds upon that which is solid.

If one attempts to manufacture a change which has no foundation, the change will not weather the storms of everyday experience that beat about one in a certain sense and cause a reverberation, shall we say, in those expressions of the self which are temporary and which are of the fleeting moment, as it were.

Carla asked Q’uo if they could suggest a way that a person could work on the bloom of the self in order to change it and its relationship between the incarnational self and the higher self that would be other than meditation. This is the bloom that Carla is talking about which Q’uo channeled through her before the contact was transferred to me:

The incarnational self could be seen as the bloom of a flower that is fed by its roots, and all of this information gives a fuller picture to the incarnated self of all of the incarnations so that it may become all that there is.

Q’uo began their reply by saying that if an entity could accept itself in its great variety of characteristics it is taking advantage of the true nature of its incarnation because this is the way that the energy of the incarnation was meant to be lived most fully. Q’uo continued by saying that if one attempts to change some portion of its nature, even if the goal is to come closer to a perceived ideal, this reduces the freedom of the expression. They said that accepting one’s nature provides a truer range of growth and expression because it builds on a firm foundation, and this allows one to weather life’s difficulties. On May 15, 1983, Q’uo spoke about the value of accepting the self:

The concept of allowing the self to move along the path of evolution in a free and open manner is a concept which has meaning to an entity which works with the blue-ray energy center of the throat. Such a configuration of energy is then experienced by the seeker in a manner which promotes the clear communication of the self with the self and with other selves, accepting the self and other selves and freely expressing the self to all which surround the self. In this manner the giving of freedom and acceptance to others springs from the giving of freedom and acceptance to the self for you are also a mirror and reflect that which is your being to those about you. Therefore, as you seek to move freely along your path of evolution, you shall also give that freedom to others and shall inspire such freedom to those who come in contact with you.

Is there another query, my sister?

Carla: I have one more. When one is trying to counsel or teach and to give an accurate and objective reflection of what something that someone else is doing that seems to have the patterns, is there any resource the teacher can call on to make sure that teacher is not… to make sure that that teacher is being an accurate mirror?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. The same discrimination that we suggest exercising is that which will determine the feeling tone of another’s teaching. That which reminds one of that which one knows deep within the heart of being is the discrimination which is necessary for the choice making.

Is there another query, my sister?

Carla: No, Q’uo, thank you very much.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you very much as well, my sister. Is there another query at this time?

Questioner: I do not have a query, Q’uo, but I do want to take this opportunity and thank through you to all the brothers and sisters of the Confederation, because I seem to draw inspiration from the various subjects channeled through this group and it helps me to stay on course.

I am Q’uo, and we appreciate your gratitude and the opportunity to be of service to you. We would thank you for allowing us to speak to your queries and concerns and would like to add that we feel you are doing well, and we are inspired by your efforts as well.

We are those of Q’uo, and at this time we shall take our leave of this instrument and this group, leaving each, as always, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This I went across the street to my neighbor’s garden and weeded it by hand and then came back to my garage to get eight thin pole of about four feet in length. I took them back to my neighbor’s flower garden and put them in the locations which Morning Glory vines were climbing flowers so they could continue their climbing.

This afternoon I was on a zoom meet with Daniel Hodapp’s Berlin Law of One Study Group. It was a question-and-answer session, and I enjoyed the great variety of questions that were focused on some aspects of the Ra contact. It was a great chance to share my love of the Law of One, and to make new friends in the process of our interactions.

Never Run Too Fast

I am of the principle of Love and greet you in that Love. We find that the minds of those who seek us this day are fretted and worried, so that there is only a very tenuous contact betwixt the Spirit of Love and those who seek It. It is very difficult for us to make it known to those who move fast and are upset.

But we are indeed with each, regardless of circumstances or where the mind is placed. Indeed, no matter how quickly the day goes or how upset you may become because of the circumstances of the day, we are with you. Love does not leave you, but, rather, the upset and worried personality forgets to open and request that the spirit of Christ enter in.

We hope you never run so fast or feel so out of sorts that you forget to open to Love, for that Love may transform, not the circumstances, but the feelings about them.

We leave you in peace, now and ever.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from June 26, 1994:

The question this afternoon is from N, and after listening to a lot of our tapes, he says that it looks to him like there are three selves in incarnation: the higher self, the incarnational self and the illusional self, which he describes as basically the genetic material biased by the culture, and he would like to have a discourse on these three selves, and their relationship to each other, and I think we might want to correct the incarnational self and the illusional self as being sort of aspects of the same self, and we might want to add the soul that exists before the incarnation. If Q’uo would like to add any other selves, or subtract, we would be happy to listen, and… that’s it!

(Carla channeling)

Greetings. We are those of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. May we thank each for calling us to your circle of seeking this working. We are humbly pleased to have the opportunity of sharing concepts with you concerning your question. As always, we request that each who hears or reads may identify for the self those things which we have to offer to that self, for each entity has its own set of personal truths which speak to that place where that one spirit is at this particular moment. Therefore, take that which is of use at this moment and leave the rest behind.

When you ask us to speak concerning the various selves of a third-density human you ask us to take on a story of movement in well conceived and fastidiously executed patterns which describe what could be seen as an elliptical or circular process, in which tremendous amounts of time and space fall away from the present moment for incredible stretches of time and space. The relatively short period of the third-density cycle is preceded by tremendously long, unimaginably lengthy terms of space and time. And, similarly, after this third density experience, the continuing refining of choices made in this density are the agenda for millions of years of learning and service.

The first self, of course, is the great Self which is the one original Thought, Love itself, that infinite and creative principle from whose riches all who are self-aware have drawn not only the outer trappings of Creatorhood, but indeed the inmost essence of the infinite Creator. This great Self has no way to communicate Its essence. Consequently, in the fullness of free will, there comes that time of creativity wherein an octave of creation is begun with the sending forth of that which is One, that it might take upon Itself the partnership with manifestation which is the very fabric of space and time.

Out of space and time, then, is created by Light all that may be called so, and all that may be used by the self to move forward in that lengthy journey away from that great source of all that there is into more and more thickness of illusion, until that great Earth plane which you now experience is reached and the stuff of earth, air, wind, and fire becomes self-aware and self-determining.

Thusly, the first self is your true self, and that is the great Self. However, since the experience of self as the great Self is not available to most within third density, the examination of it is in this context unnecessary. Certainly, when that which you now perceive as self is born, when that impregnating of consciousness with self-awareness occurs, and the seeker as a new, self-aware consciousness—we correct this instrument—point or spark of consciousness enters the first of many incarnations within third density, that new self represents all of the instinctual selfhood of the creature which is the physical vehicle for humankind, and as the process of living, feeling, and sensing and experiencing begins, various distortions come to be within that selfhood in a repetitive manner, so that at the beginning of each birth, there is a self-entering birth which has already been biased and distorted in a lasting way by previous choices made during previous incarnations.

Each incarnation, then, is not only an opportunity to learn lessons of love, it is further an opportunity to emphasize those biases found within the self which are considered by the self to be positive or helpful. The self also has the opportunity to look again at each and every distortion which is pre-incarnative, which seems to have sprung from birth, rather than from incarnational experience, and to decide differently, thus loosening the framework of thinking and ideation, and reshaping it in small or large degree. Thusly, there is the opportunity, as a conscious being within incarnation, to use the consciousness that has been attained to look at the self, to look at the harvest of self anew and to have such an openness of mind that it will be possible for the self to work effectively upon the self.

N wanted Q’uo to comment on the higher self, the incarnational self, and the illusional self, but it was decided that the illusional self and incarnational self were probably the same, and perhaps the soul should also be discussed. Q’uo began their reply by giving an overview of the process of evolution of the Creator through millions of years of experience before and after the third density. They went on to say that the Creator used Its Free Will to focus through the power of Love to create the Light of all objects in space and time and the octave of densities that began with the first density of earth, wind, fire, and water. So, Q’uo said that our first self is our true self which is the Self of the Creator which most entities within the third density will not experience, so Q’uo said that it was not necessary to get into a discussion of it. Then Q’uo said that when the third density self is born as a consciousness into the instinctual awareness of a physical body, then the process of many incarnations will begin which will allow the third-density self to make choices and learn the lessons of love. Q’uo said that many of these lessons are pre-incarnatively chosen and allow the self to work effectively upon the self in order to obtain the harvest to the fourth density. On October 27, 1985, L/Leema spoke of the lessons of love:

It is rather the salient lesson and ambiance, if we may, of your illusion that entities work upon the lessons of love. Those lessons include the seemingly foolish giving of self without expectation of return, the movement within darkness with the faith that the Love of the one Creator exists in each portion of that darkness without knowing any fact for sure and yet giving wholly of the self regardless of the not being able to know. Yet do entities learn the lessons of love.

It is not likely that any within your illusion will move much past the lesson of love. Thus the recommendation to each is that one give wholeheartedly the truest and best of one’s treasures, that is, to give without consideration of return, and to give with the greatest intention to serve that one can find.

Now, the eternal or spiritual self, to use a general term, is only to a very small extent differing from that self which the query called the illusional self. The difference, however, seems quite large to the self-aware being, for it seems that there is an enormous chasm between the infinite self and the self within incarnation. However, there is the continuing difficulty of the subject observing itself. Selfhood tends to keep the self from seeing clearly into its own nature. Thusly, each entity may be of service to others by reflecting honestly and clearly for others that which is being received. Others have the gift to give you of this reflection.

Thus, we always encourage the listening ear and the understanding heart when entities are attempting to communicate, especially concerning relationships. For it is the gift of each to each that in communication a more objective or unbiased viewpoint might be had by all. Each has gifts of this kind to give, and each has much to receive, even from those who seem to be negatively impressed and critical. Open the ears always when this occurs, for perhaps truth may lie there, and perhaps freedom might come from a new perception of this truth.

For with each other’s help the incarnational self attempts more and more to conform its vibrational pattern to that one original pattern of great Selfhood. This is the object, to match the vibrational characteristics of the one infinite Creator. All of self-perceived selfhood is an illusion. All of creation is an illusion. There is nothing here. There is nothing there. There is only everything, and it takes up no time, nor space.

So, the distinction betwixt the self between incarnations and the self during incarnations is in fact a subcategory. An even smaller difference exists betwixt these two. But in terms of the work of incarnation, the difference is, of course, most telling. The times of meditation which we encourage are those opportunities wherein the self within incarnation is able to link up with those selves before, those lives before, and that self which more and more has become articulated through the continuing process of reincarnation. That self’s great desire is to move back into unpotentiated great Selfhood.

So, as incarnational beings, as incarnational selves, we relate to the self between incarnations as one who knows no secrets would relate to the twin, shall we say, or the fellow who knows all the secrets. So much within an incarnation, especially toward the end of a cycle, is already determined by the great weight of previous choice, that the memories of all that has gone before almost have more confusion to offer than riches to consider. However, we encourage the use of both meditative periods and sleeping and dreaming to more and more easily link into the self that exists between incarnations. While it is not the great Self, being a biased entity, it does nevertheless have much of wisdom which it aids entities to link up with within incarnation.

It is not so much the knowledge of what has happened in past lives that helps as it is the seating and grounding of the self from the part which blooms in incarnation down to the roots of that being which lie within that portion of your consciousness which carries all memory of previous lifetimes and other deep awarenesses such as the archetypical.

So we would encourage a model in which the incarnational human may be seen to be the bloom that arises and shall return to the elements which are used to create the personhood and walk it about on two legs. This blooming of self is related to its roots which feed and nourish it. That root is the abiding self, not yet the great Self, but that unfinished but heavily biased self which has learned, and relearned, and relearned many lessons already. There are things within this bloom which the roots wished to extirpate from the entire plant. There are ways of blooming which the roots hoped would become clear to this particular bloom, and that root of being roots down through all the illusion of all the incarnative selves and all the incarnations and becomes all that there is.

Now Q’uo said that the eternal, spiritual self was similar to the illusional self, but that this was difficult for the self-aware being to see, so it is helpful for each person to help others to reflect who each is as this is a gift all have to give each other. They said that this was helpful for everyone to see that they are a portion of the one Creator as all is an illusion, and within the relationships with others all are more able to match the vibration of the Creator. Q’uo suggested using meditation to make the connection between the incarnated self and the self before the incarnation so that the self’s desire to move back into the uncreated Selfhood may be realized. Then Q’uo said that working with sleep and dreams was also a way to connect with the self that exists between incarnations and discover more information to share about the nature of the self as the great Self seen in the way of the archetypical self in the roots of consciousness. Q’uo completed their thoughts by saying that the incarnational self could be seen as the bloom of a flower that is fed by its roots, and all of this information gives a fuller picture to the incarnated self of all of the incarnations so that it may become all that there is. On June 27, 1993, Q’uo described the nature of how we are all that there is:

The Creator created a great original Expression or Thought. This we have called the Logos, or Love. This principle, this Love, created all that there is by the quantizing articulation of Light. Yet all that is created is of the nature of its parent source, which is Love. The reason for offering love, appreciation, a blessing and thanksgiving to the infinite One is that the entity within incarnation is attempting to form its vibratory frequency more and more like that of the vibrational frequency of the one great original Thought, which is Love. The closer the seeker comes to matching that vibratory frequency, the more that entity will be perceived as offering praise and thanksgiving. This is true far beneath any articulation of words or even what you consider thoughts. Rather, it is in the nature of the way creation is built. That is, the original Thought expresses in Love, thanks, blessing, praise and rejoicing. Thusly, it is not a Creator hungry for praise and thanks that requires homage of its worshippers, but rather it is Love, it is reflected in love, and in that infinite reflection lies truth.

At this time we would transfer this contact to the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument as we leave it. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I went outside and noticed that during the night we got over three inches of rain, which was such a blessing, but it also reduced the height of the fountain because of the additional water in the fishpond. So I pumped out just enough water to get the fountain back to its greatest height without hitting the schemer box and splashing out of the pond.

This afternoon I went outside and began weeding using my trimmer in various parts of the yard instead of weeding by hand at this time because the ground is too wet to walk or kneel upon.

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

Be The Light

I am the principle of divine Love. I greet you in the full consciousness of that Love which is in Jesus the Christ.

You, as you gaze at yourself, cannot see that you are the light of the world. Disturbed with your own difficulties, confused about priorities, and in general bogged down in the waste, the paperwork, and the uselessness of many daily activities, it is easy to forget, and it is easy to relinquish your birthright.

Your birthright is to be sons and daughters of the one infinite Creator. You are the light of the world. Know and feel this in your heart. Know that through the grace of this principle which we represent, all your efforts shall be comforted and supported.

Do not think too little of yourself. Be the light of the world in gladness, joy, and singleness of mind and heart. Remember that which you are here to do: love each other. May you shine with the radiance of the Christ.

We are with you always in comfort and in the peace of unconditional love, now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo channeling comes from June 19, 1994:

One way of progressing on the service-to-others path is by biasing our balance and then balancing our biases. These biases are brought to our attention by our perception of events and offer catalyst for processing. Eventually one profits by seeing the Creator in all and radiating love and acceptance in that reality. It appears that the construct of the mind is of such a nature that processing painful catalysts are engraved in the subconscious in a much firmer and more definite fashion than those learned by experiencing joy or happiness. Why did a loving Creator allow the constructs that learn more effectively with pain rather than with joy?

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. We greet you with joy as you rest in meditation this day to speak with you concerning joy and sorrow, gain and loss, illusion and truth. It is, as always, a distinct privilege to share your meditation, to blend our energies with your own, and to join you in the circle of seeking for this working. As always, examine our concepts with the ear for the recognition of personal truth. Lay any thoughts which do not seem appropriate for you to one side. For this we thank you.

The nature of third density is primarily dictated by the lessons which have been prepared for each seeker to walk with. And for the goal towards which these lessons point, that basic nature of your illusion is division into opposites, for yours is the density of choice. Yours is an illusion rich in either/or. The raw material which you bring to this illusion is itself duple. On the one hand, you bring to these lessons a physical, mental, emotional complex of great instinctual beauty, symmetry, and harmony. The physical vehicle of third density is unimaginably rich in sense perceptions. At all times the inner eye is filled with an enormous variety of sense perceptions. These are instinctually prioritized and held in an instinctual state of balance. This is that second-density creature which has accepted the role of carrying your consciousness about for this incarnative experience.

In return for all of the unimaginable wealth of sensations and perceptions the physical body asks in return that it be tended, and this tending is established as a large and pivotal activity throughout third-density experience. The right use of this instinctual vehicle constantly remains an issue to the seeker.

To this density has been brought also the infinite, eternal, creative consciousness which is within the Creator and which, as you hear these words, is experiencing that which the instinctual body offers and then perhaps having the awareness to reprioritize the wealth of sense perceptions made available by the instinctual body. Thusly, your very physical situation holds a dichotomy which may be seen to be peculiarly vulnerable to choices. The beginning of third density rests in the either/or of spiritual or physical, eternal or time bound. At this level one does not view good or evil, positive or negative. Rather, one is viewing the temporary as opposed to the eternal. The Creator—that creative principle of Love in which all reside—rests within the infinite intelligence of unpotentiated Love.

However, each individualized spark of this Love experiences time, space, and within your density, choices, whereas the truth rests always in peace. The seeker of truth, time and space-bound within the physical incarnation, must place one foot ahead of the other, moment by moment, day by day, revolving about that truth which lies imminent within each moment, constantly having the opportunity to gaze into the present moment in such a way that sense perceptions are reprioritized in order to maximize the effectiveness of the choices available in that moment.

Always, there is the choice between that which lies upon the surface and that which lies beneath, beyond, and through the surface unto the deepest profundity of awareness. We have often said that the journey of the seeker is one from the head to the heart. When the perceptions of the moment are evaluated by one drifting upon the surface of the moment there is fairly constantly the making of choices which maximize comfort. We do not imply that there is something wrong with comfort. We simply point out that comfort or happiness is neither joy or sorrow, but simply comfort. That which most entities call joy is actually no more than a surface degree of comfort and ease within which one may rest and enjoy the illusion. With this we find absolutely nothing amiss. It is only that the state of mind which is comfortable runs directly counter to that state of mind in which the seeker may make choices.

It is not that sorrow, loss, and limitation are the only means of learning the lessons of love and polarizing towards the infinite Creator’s vibration, but, rather, that few indeed are the entities which are willing, in the absence of pain, to do the intensive work which is needed to attain an acceleration of the polarization process using joy as catalyst.

Here is how to be joyful. Upon the arising, turn to the infinite One and instant by instant turn again to the infinite One, again and again, in all things giving thanks, in all conditions rejoicing. Turn again to the infinite One and rest in that peace which truly the world does not know. Joy is a living energy as powerful and as effective a teacher as sorrow. However, it demands of the seeker a self-imposed discipline of the personality which looks beyond ease and comfort and energizes and exhorts the self again and again unceasingly to rejoice, give praise and offer thanksgiving to the infinite One.

One of your teachers known as Joel Goldsmith has called this joyful path “practicing the presence of the one infinite Creator.” The path of joy is equally as effective as the path of sorrow. Yet, if the seeker is truly upon the path of joy there is the same degree of creative unrest in this process that there is while undergoing the catalyst of losses, limitations and grief. This is the road not taken, the path of joy. If you would be good at this path, learn to be dissatisfied with happiness and count all things as loss except turning again to praise and give thanks to the one infinite Creator. If the intensity of desire can be maintained while there is an absence of negative catalyst, then the negative catalyst is not necessary. You may see that, indeed, few there are who are able to walk this particular path to the infinite One.

The group question for this session was: “It appears that the construct of the mind is of such a nature that processing painful catalysts are engraved in the subconscious in a much firmer and more definite fashion than those learned by experiencing joy or happiness. Why did a loving Creator allow the constructs that learn more effectively with pain rather than with joy?” Q’uo began their reply by saying that our third-density illusion is an experience of opposites, of either/or, because it is the density of choice. Then Q’uo said that in the third density we live within the physical body that has a wealth of sense perceptions to share with our consciousness which then prioritizes these perceptions either in the spiritual or physical nature, which could also be seen as the eternal or time bound nature. Q’uo continued by saying that each seeker experiences time, space, and choices on a daily basis whereas the truth is found in peace, so the seeker must perceive the sense perceptions and continue making the most effective choices within this present moment of peace. Q’uo went on to say that instead of remaining on the surface of seeking comfort, it is important to move to deeper levels of awareness in order to make choices which deal with sorrow, loss, and pain that help the seeker learn the lessons of how to move from the head to the heart. However, Q’uo also said that it was possible to reach the same goal by using joy in the repeated giving of praise and thanksgiving to the one Creator throughout the day, and this discipline would allow the seeker to know a peace that the world knows not. Q’uo said that the paths of sorrow and joy are equally effective as the path of joy can be successful if one can be dissatisfied with all happiness and count all things as loss except to maintain the intensity of desire to give praise and thanks to the infinite Creator. On October 29, 1995, Q’uo described the path of joy:

To be transparent is the most apt skill that can be created within your practice in terms of becoming aware of the ultimate essence of who you are. This transparency is, shall we say, not a state of being which is primary on the agenda of lessons learned within your density. However, those who seek the one infinite Mystery often yearn to be transparent to the surrounding illusion and wish mightily to experience that lightness in transparency of being which is associated with being pure spirit. The most calm and the most busy of times alike offer moments or windows of opportunity wherein suddenly the illusion crystallizes and shimmers, and the transparency of being can be felt. When these moments occur, find time to give praise and thanks for these experiences of a truth that lies within you.

The path of sorrow, then, is that path which nearly all experience nearly all the time within incarnation. Misery, anger, grief—all the uncomfortable emotional and mental states—create a necessity for seeking some means of relief. The limitations are there because the nature of the choice is such that the surface illusion can be seen by the seeker to be an illusion. And it is through the growing discomfort of catalyst, of loss and limitation, that the wayward spirit is finally alert to the need for discipline.

That which needs to be grasped may perhaps be seen to be held in the concept of sacrifice. The seeker is born into a world which offers great riches. These riches are apparent: health, possessions, power. All that which is seen, however, is the illusion. If the world thinks well of something, it is almost sure to be that which is illusory. So, how then to get the attention? How to make the self work, spiritually speaking? The infant comes into the world in a state of unrestrained joy. This is the path upon which entities begin. Often before the entity has opened the eyes to the physical world that joy has been compromised. Certainly within the first year or two of incarnation that native joy will be compromised, and the entity plunges into the myriad catalysts of this rich illusion which you now enjoy. As one watches the growing child one can see this joy more and more compromised by circumstance.

Where are the teachers of the path of joy? Why is this path not more used? There is a simple answer; that being that the path of joy is the path of the adept and to the adept all things are loss, except the infinite Creator and serving that love which is the Creator. All things whatever may be counted as loss except that service. It is for this that each has come into this incarnation, to learn this path. This shining goal waits for each and becomes the path of fourth density. But third density still is being processed by each. This joy is still to be experienced fully except in many moments for each seeker where there is the click of sliding into that presence which is electric, which is the Creator within.

So, we welcome you to this path of sorrow, loss and limitation. We encourage each to practice the path of joy, to practice the presence of the one infinite Creator. But we say to you that most of you shall, again and again, fall away from joy into comfort, happiness and eventual sorrow. And we say that it is well that these sorrows then occur, for this is that which teaches at this particular stage of awareness. The primary choice, we say again, is toward the absolute, the infinite and eternal as opposed to all things temporary and illusory.

We encourage each seeker to practice this joy as much as possible within the framework of an authentically lived life which grapples with the sorrows of an incarnation. Encourage and exhort each other to practice the presence in all ways which are meet and appropriate, one to another. Encourage the self, whenever the mind may turn to awareness of self, to turn again and again to that center within in which all things reside, abide and have their being. Give thanks always and for every blessing, including the most unimaginable loss and pain. Rejoice in hardship and suffering. And let your heart be glad in life, in death. Then you shall not be troubled with sorrow. But, dear ones, if you cannot achieve this state of vibration, know that this is no more than what was expected for third density. You now walk in a shadow land where nothing is what it seems. Within each atom of this shadow land resides an infinite, absolute reality. The journey takes no time, no space. The answers lie within. Do not begrudge your sorrows their place, for the path of joy does await.

Then Q’uo said that almost everyone in the third density experiences the path of uncomfortable mental and emotional states that can only be dealt with by some kind of discipline. They continued by saying that we are all born into the world of seeming riches such as health, possessions, and power, but these are illusions, and the joy of seeking them must eventually be sacrificed so that the catalyst of the illusion may become processed in the form of the loss of these riches, and then the seeker can focus upon loving and serving the Creator which is the path into the fourth density. Q’uo continued by encouraging seekers to follow the path of the joy of the presence of the one infinite Creator and to join with others in this path in order to deal with the sorrows of life, to rejoice in pain and suffering, but then Q’uo said that if we cannot sustain this state of vibration, that is what the third density is all about: nothing is what it seems and all answers and sorrows will lead us to the path of joy. On February 15, 2023, Q’uo spoke about the experience of joy:

Tonight you ask about the spirit portion of your mind/body/spirit complex and how it might be seen as that which partakes more fully and freely, of what you call joy. The joy of being. The joy of knowing your connection to the One Infinite Creator. The joy of knowing your connection with all of your brothers and sisters within the third density, who are also manifestations of the One Infinite Creator. This is a kind of knowing that comes from the heart of your being that is connected to the Love of the One Infinite Creator that has created the universe around you out of its Love, focused into Light. Your spirit is that which partakes of the nature of creation as being a portion of the One Creator.

At this time, we would transfer this contact to the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument as we leave it. We are those of Q’uo.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light through this instrument. At this time we would ask if we may speak to any further queries which those present may find value in the asking. Is there another query at this time?

R: Could you restate the comment that “all things are loss which are part of the illusion”? Could you say that again?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. When we say that all things are loss we mean that there will come a time when all things that are made shall not be made, for the creation of things evolves and changes until there is another vibratory pattern that replaces the old. In each incarnation there is the experience gained that is reserved or kept according to its quality and kind rather than the details of the makeup of the experience being kept. Thus, distillations of your incarnational experiences become that soul essence that is you as you progress through the octaves of light. That essence remains and is eternal, whereas the forms that were utilized to provide experience that is later distilled to essence, these all fade away.

Is there a further query, my brother?

R: No, thank you.

Q’uo: We thank you, my brother, and we would also thank the one known as N for providing the focus for our working this day. We are with this entity in meditation, upon request, as we are with all entities who request our presence in the meditative state. We are happy to blend our vibrations there and to aid in the deepening of your meditation.

At this time we would take our leave of this instrument and this group, leaving each, as always, in the love and in the light of the infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I changed out the sugar syrup in my three hummingbird feeders, and then I went across the street to my neighbor’s yard and did the same with her two hummingbird feeders. Then I made an errand run with my first stop being at The Home Depot to pick up three more Sun Patiens for my clay tile pyramid. My second stop was at Feeder’s Supply where I bought some kitty litter, bird seed, and fish food. Then I stopped in at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. My last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some Pepsi Zero. When I got home, I finished the transplanting of the Sun Patiens into the clay tile pyramid and the Marigolds that I bought yesterday into the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden.

This afternoon I found a smaller stone to put beneath the fountain in the fishpond so that it does not spray its fountain so that it splashes off of the schemer box and the out of the fishpond. The water clarity seemed off to me, so I pumped a quarter of the water out of the fishpond, cleaned the filters, and refilled the fishpond with fresh water.

Awaiting The Host’s Invitation

I am of those who shower this world with the ever-creative Love of Jesus the Christ. I greet you in the consciousness of Love.

That consciousness flowers when it will, as the world calls for it and requires it. That consciousness is called by desire. That consciousness dwells as the guest within the house, awaiting the host’s invitation to join in the conversation at table.

At times your experience may that of the banquet and at other times that of starvation fare. Yet always the manna of divine thought is there in full supply to fill the hearts and minds of those who seek beyond banquet and hunger to that food which is given every day for the transformation of the self and the renewal of all of humankind.

We leave you in the peace of constant, divine Love. Whatever your circumstance this is yours, now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

2024-07-07

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from May 29, 1994:

The question today has to do with healing. Many of the newer and more holistic means of healing deal with the body that has to be healed, the mind and the emotional system that has an effect upon the body, and then each one attempts to deal also with the spiritual aspect, which has ascendancy over both the emotional and the physical realms. We are wondering how a healer who is using any particular holistic method to heal might aid the patient to engage the spiritual aspect of the healing so that the healing has a better chance of being successful and so that the roots of the problems are dealt with. Could you give us some information on that?

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is indeed a privilege to be called to your circle of seeking and we humbly thank each for offering us the honor of sharing our vibrations and our opinions with you. As always, we request that those thoughts which seem helpful to each be retained and that those which do not appear helpful at this particular occasion be released, for we are prone to error, being those who journey with you, but perhaps a few steps further in that infinite journey. With this understood we may speak freely.

The difficulty in speaking about spiritual healing and cleansing is the difficulty common to all attempts to put faith into words. Whereas physical and mental, emotional—we correct this instrument—emotional problems have a large vocabulary of closely fitting words to work with, the issues of spirit must depend upon words such as love and faith which have no objective referent that is at one’s hand to pin down and to create as a fully meaningful term. Words like faith indeed do refer to a real thing, but that reality is at best approximately symbolized by language, for the level of this truth is beyond the reach of words created as tools in dealing with one’s environment.

The entity who is attempting a life lived in faith is perhaps the closest one might come to a fully meaningful symbol of faith. A person who is attempting to love is perhaps the soulful expression of love itself. When that verb which is the seeker seeks to attain the objective of spiritual health, then, there is no set of words that can bring about healing, for the health of spirit is at once always within that entity seeking help, regardless of the outer appearance. However, this health is also most suggestible when there is attained within the seeker the releasing and balancing of all energies which can be felt, and then the simple willing belief of a believer who believes not in the words of faith, but who believes that faith is the appropriate energetic balance.

This is difficult for us to give this instrument, but we would ask each to picture the entity who rides upon the bicycle or the entity who flies the airplane. When the various moments of motion are moving harmoniously, the balance is effortless. To achieve an approximate balance, however, for the newly—we correct this instrument—for the new practitioner is very difficult. The beginner does not know what true balance feels like and has not the ready instinct usually for that point of balance. So it is when a seeker begins to reinvent the life so that the life becomes a life lived in faith.

Structurally speaking, there are two clear portions to working upon spiritual healing or health. The first energy which needs to be worked with by the entity and by a healer who wishes to assist is that portion of the self which could perhaps be seen as muddied or roiled in terms of energetic patterns. The torque of spiritual disease is such that the unhealthy entity that one could say knotted or twisted and then held in that pattern by the energies which wish to untangle that unhealth, but yet each attempt to untangle just close the knot tighter.

This darkness, shall we say, is a darkness which is in the midst of the light which is also perceived as darkness. Therefore, there is no vision within which can tell what of the shadow world of spirit is of health and which is that of disease. Therefore, in the combing out of these tangles the dependency must be not upon precise visualization, but rather upon the willingness of that seeker to lay down all judgment of both disease and health, or of both the darkness which is knotted and that great darkness of spirit which is the rightful realm of the healthy and balanced spiritual seeker.

The right ways of working to release these tightly held points of disease are those which heavily move into symbol, both the use of symbols and the general willingness to work with parallel healing modes, with the realization that the cleansing of the mode used is specifically intended and desired to be reflected within the patterns of energy of the individual as spiritual counterparts. So that perhaps an entity seeking to release old mind and old unhealth of spirit might put the self upon some sort of fast or diet, this being specifically stated within and repeated often as one form of cleansing which is reflected into the spirit; as the parallel of the body is cleansed, so the paralleled spirit also becomes more cleansed and less full of substance.

As a healer wishing to aid this process, one may work within one’s experience and thought to achieve methods found by one particular healer to be efficacious. These might include, for instance, the aiding of that patient to achieve a more suggestible state, or hypnosis. In this state, then, the healer may take the entity to a point between incarnations where the higher self is a voice available to and able to respond to questioner and questions so that the healer might gently request the higher self be asked by the patient if this entity is indeed ready to experience healing. In other words, is that lesson for which this distortion was necessary now learned; if not, may there be some thought upon this. Thusly, that entity’s higher self may give impressions and words within the hearing and control of that patient.

Alternately, a healer might choose, when a hypnotic state was achieved, simply to speak in terms of lessening fear by means of extending the range of the viewpoint. This entity recalls the story told her of a patient whose ulcers were life-threatening. In hypnosis this entity was told that the entity sat on the side of a large planet, a ball whirling in space. The scope of time, the reaches of spaces were piped into the inner world of this entity. Those concerns which seared and burned within could more and more be seen to be of less import because of the widening of the viewpoint from this moment and this place to an infinite sweep of time and space.

The group question for this session was: “We are wondering how a healer who is using any particular holistic method to heal might aid the patient to engage the spiritual aspect of the healing so that the healing has a better chance of being successful and so that the roots of the problems are dealt with?” Q’uo began by saying that physical, mental, and emotional problems that might need healing can be described by words, but spiritual problems can only be described by the concepts of love and faith. Q’uo continued by saying that spiritual healing is always within the seeker regardless of outer appearances, and can be achieved by the releasing and balancing of all the energies that can be felt, and then having the faith that these energies have been balanced. Then Q’uo said that this balance is difficult to achieve because the beginner doesn’t know what it feels like, and this is like the seeker beginning to reinvent the life so that its life becomes that which is lived in faith. Q’uo went on to say that the first energy of spiritual disease that needs to be worked upon by the healer and the one to be healed is a combination of that which is spiritually healthy and that which is spiritually unhealthy which are tangled together in a kind of darkness, and the best way to work with them is to release all judgements of health or disease. Q’uo continued by saying that one way to heal spiritual disease could be symbolically approached by putting the body on a fasting diet, which is stated as an intention and repeated often, so that as the body is cleansed, and the spirit is also cleansed of the diseased substance. Q’uo also said that hypnosis could be used to ask the higher self if the lessons that this disease represents have been learned so that healing may occur, or if they have not been learned then the patient should give this serious thought. Then Q’uo said that hypnosis could also be used to take the patient to a higher viewpoint in space to look back upon the difficulties of its disease as growing less significant in the overall view of time and space. On October 17, 1991, Q’uo gave a general description of the healing process:

Perhaps firstly we should say, that unless an entity wishes to be healed, just at that moment and just by that person, it is a far better thing to relinquish that opportunity of healing. For the healing must take place at a level of very high trust. Open heart to open heart, so as the patient reckons with itself and finds that it does indeed feel that it still needs this apparent disease, that is alright. That is acceptable. It is not necessary to take damaged entities and refurbish them for the entire chemical engine of your physical being, though very wide in a cellular way, will not respond to that which the Higher Self does not feel that that entity needs or wants on a deeper level. And once again patience of the cycles of the year: the gleaning of the harvest, the darkening of the days, the rejoicing when the sun starts once again to make a lighter and brighter world for the eyes and for the hearts of all.

Another entity might wish to use the conscious technique, that is, the patient remaining conscious of the tones sung or the prayers offered. In doing these chantings, or singings, or sharing energy in some other way, the healer and the patient are together seeking to release the disease by these energetic displacements, not of thoughts but of tones and so forth which have for the healer the ability to carry prayer, the energy of prayer. For what is a prayer? When one wishes to aid the spiritually ill one truly needs to be able to speak of prayer in a way which is flexible, but yet which holds for the healer that ring of authority which indicates experience, which the healer does have. So perhaps it is well to look at prayer.

But this moves into the second portion of the material we hope to share at this working. Before we leave the first there is a bit more to be said. What is this knotting that indicates that the shuttle of spirit is not in good working order? The simplest term is fear. The spiritually ill entity has moved into an isolation, a place alone within which the entity is unforgiven and unnurtured. This isolation is crushing and once entered is very difficult to see, much less to work with. So, the energies of the healer pour like a blessing over this wounded spirit, lessening the isolation. However it is an infringement on the free will of the spirit being healed to substitute one’s own faith for the faith of the patient, so the healer who wishes to be of benefit must work on itself, offering, too, itself those energies of forgiveness and wholeness. And in this offering to self, opening and sharing this purifies emotion of an at-one-ment with the patient.

Simply to say, “All things are love and love casts out fear,” is in almost all cases inadequate. Perhaps one entity might hear and understand in a moment of realization that truly love casts out fear, but to the ailing spirit, such encouragement usually is received as if it simply constituted another pressure which was painful, the feelings of inadequacy and helplessness continuing and perhaps even growing. It is well to be humble and silent before or in the face of the temptation to overstate or speak too much. However, there are an infinite number of ways to create within the self of the healer that dynamic balance to forgiveness and love which may far better speak to the spiritually ill.

This instrument is concerned that it is not picking up all that we are offering, but we ask this instrument to quit being so picky and move on please. We are teasing this instrument.

Once that fear that isolates and anguishes the patient has been addressed, once the way has been to some extent cleared, then the healer moves to the darkness of spiritual hell, still in that place of mystery where faith is born, but now is free because of having addressed and bid farewell to fear. Into this environment may prayer come.

The one known as D has offered the information that although the spiritual illness can now be to some extent determined or found, yet there has not been a corresponding mode of healing with the exception of prayer. Again, this is because the spirit, while acting as a shuttle for energies into the physical and mental and emotional bodies, is not in direct contact with energies within the instinctual body and mental frame of individuals upon planet Earth, but rather can be reached roundabout, or so it seems to those within third density. The praying seems roundabout because one is praying to forces or essences within the world of spirit. And then that energy which lies without the sphere of Earth is persuaded to enter into the tangle to breathe balance into it. However, in actuality prayer is the most direct way of healing, for true healing is the restoration of all energies to their rightful balance.

But how to pray and how to aid patients in praying? Firstly, we would suggest that it be told to patients who are interested in helping themselves in this wise, concerning the physical place where he or she might pray, where in a specific environment shall the prayers be, how long shall they be given, of what shall they consist, thereby aiding the seeker in its growing ability to visualize this as a real and efficacious healing mode. For those among your peoples, for the most part, do not have the daily prayers, do not have the praying without ceasing, and if neither the daily repetition of prayer, or the constancy of prayer are things which the patient is familiar with then the suggestion to pray leaves the patient in a vulnerable position, feeling alone and inadequate. Thusly, the healer aids by making a place in time and space where the outer form might be observed. Thusly can a healer move the patient into that mental and emotional feeling of “I can do this.”

It is seemingly merely working with details to get down to basics to decide which chair to use or what time of day to make for prayer time, yet these down-to-earth details truly do aid in the formation of faith. Now, prayer could be said to be that tune which, though unheard, is the tune of hope. Prayer can be said to be that inner flower which bears the scent of love. Prayer can be talked about indirectly by speaking of the beauty of a poem or a rose. Prayer is a form of communication whose object is one with its subject. The prayer, in reaching to the infinite Creator, reaches within. The self talking to the greater Self, this is the structure which seen from the outside may be said to constitute the house of prayer. The actuality is that that seemingly far away source of unity which Love itself is, lies within, so the journey of prayer is a journey from self to the greater Self within, then circling back to form the unending circle between prayer and prayer, that is between the one who prays and the object of prayer.

It is not that we are saying that people pray to themselves, rather we are saying that…

[Side one of tape ends.]

…to which people pray lies within, for as the illusions of manifestation are progressively cast aside, that which is uncovered is already holy ground, and that far away Creator of one who fears is in reality that imminent presence which is the internal truth of all, shut away from the heart’s awareness by that door which the seeker is always able to open but has not discovered the way to, or the key for it.

Thusly, it is well for the healer to speak some words concerning this practice of the infinite presence of that one great original Thought, that Logos which is Love and which is the One infinite Creator. In your Holy Bible it is written that the one known as Jesus states, “I am come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” This abundance of life is that which is the healthy spirit. When you have been able to, as healer, to place within the seeker’s hands these basic concepts, then the healer’s job is done insofar as communication with the seeker. From this point onward the healer may pray and know that presence within and offer this state of prayer to the infinite Creator on behalf of the patient, and the seeker who is the patient may begin to create for itself a life which is transformed. But this transformation shall come not visibly, not plainly, but rather from inside out.

Now Q’uo said that chanting, singing, or praying is a way to begin the healing process, but before exploring prayer Q’uo wanted to return to the concept of the knotting process–of that which is spiritually healthy with that which is spiritually unhealthy–and is caused by fear because the one to be healed feels isolated and alone and unable to forgive itself. Then Q’uo said that the healer must go through the same process of forgiving itself so that it purifies itself in order to become one with the patient, and once this is done the healer can move into the place of spiritual mystery where healing might be done in faith because of having addressed and bid farewell to fear, and into this environment may prayer come. Q’uo went on to say that prayer is the most effective way of healing because it invokes the essences in the world of the spirit which breathes balance into the tangled knot to restore all energies into their rightful balance. Then Q’uo said that the healer must help the patient to find the proper place and time to pray on a daily basis in order to speak to the infinite One which is actually the greater Self within the self that gives the patient contact with the healing power of Love. Q’uo completed their response by saying that when the healer has given the patient this process of prayer then the healer has completed its work with the patient, and thereafter may offer its prayer to the infinite Creator on behalf of the patient so that the patient may create a transformed life that comes from within itself. On April 18, 1993 Q’uo spoke of the way prayer aids healing:

Thus, prayer creates the introduction into the mind/body/spirit totality of an entity of the original flow. However, this flow is moving along the spiritual, rather than the physical, of the bodies. It therefore moves through blockage, confusion, and so forth, wherever it finds it. This free flow of the energy sought and found in prayer has the tendency to entrain the flow of the physical vehicle, so that the physical energy of flow tends to be restored.

Now, when an entity wishes to be a healing presence, not only for one physical vehicle or one mental, emotional, or spiritual aspect of a consciousness, but for the world at large as this instrument would say, or for some group larger than one entity, the prayer is working upon the mental, or in some cases, emotional vehicles of that group entity, and in some few cases, on the physical manifestation of that group entity. So, whether the healing is for an individual or group consciousness, the prayer has in its answer an equally effective agent of health.

Were entities to turn, whenever they found themselves in a worried or puzzled state, to intercession, thanksgiving, and praise, that is, to various forms of prayer, they would find, over a period of time, two things: firstly, that their frame of mind had become more balanced; secondly, that the problems that were so worrying somehow had taken a turn for the better in that they begin to be perceived as less worrisome. Turning to prayer is an appeal or shifting of the attention to that original pattern, which is forever mysterious but is also forever unified and whole.

It is a habit hard to cultivate, difficult to regularize, and impossible to adjudge in any provable way. However, that instinct of consciousness is a gift which may remind each in time of trouble to ask for help. Asking, praying—this is the secret. For as one devoutly hopes, has faith, and prays, so shall one’s health be established.

There is much which might be added upon this interesting subject, however, we are aware that we have talked overlong, and at this time we would move on in this session by transferring this contact to the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument and leave it in love and in light. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I drove to Nashville to visit Anna, her husband, Brandon, and their new kitty, Hibachi. It took a little longer to get there than it should have because Siri took me to the incorrect address on the south side of Nashville, and Anna said that they lived on the north side of Nashville, so Siri finally it the address right on the second try. We had a great time together talking about our life paths in various ways and enjoying Hibachi playing with all of us in one way or another.

This afternoon we enjoyed a great lunch out at a new vegan restaurant, and then returned back to their house where Anna and I listened to Carla channel Ra while seeing the words being channeled for Session #37 on Anna’s television screen. We had a great time together, and I look forward to our next visit. My trip home was also longer than expected as there was a good deal of stop and go traffic due to construction on the road that reduce three lanes to one.

The Universe Is Your Womb

I am the spirit of Jesus the Christ in the world today and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine Love.

The night sky is an image which we may connect to the womb of the soul. The stars are sliding by in infinite number, their points of light flashing as jewels and moving away, then, at speeds which are impossible to express with tongue or measure.

It is in the starry womb within the silence of your being that peace, confidence, and trust in that perfect Love which Jesus brings are expressed. Rest in that womb and realize that you have yet to be born and that this universe and all that you see before you is indeed your womb.

To become a true child of the universe will be strange and new and certainly un-peaceful. Therefore, rest back in the true nature of womb silence and feel that peace which passeth all understanding, for in the darkness of the womb of the Father-Mother-God shall you be created and shall you create.

We leave you in the peace and the love 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, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from May 22, 1994:

The question this afternoon has to do with wanderers. What does Q’uo have to say to those who have discovered that they are wanderers to be of service to others, and what would Q’uo have to say to those wanderers who have not discovered that they are wanderers?

(Carla channeling)

We are Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We thank you for calling us to your circle of seeking. It is our great privilege to share our thoughts with you on the subject of wanderers. As we speak, please feel free to take those thoughts which appeal and leave others behind, for we are not without error and would not wish to be a stumbling block in your path.

We are aware that this instrument has been much concerned with this subject. We would express to this instrument that it would aid the contact were the instrument to completely release the fear of contributing too much to the channeling. This is not a problem from our point of view, and the releasing of worrying would relax the instrument and improve the contact. We also would say, before we continue with this subject, that the one known as Hatonn is with this group this particular day as there is a desire for this entity’s basic vibrations which will be imprinted upon the tape.

When the term “wanderer” is used the basic meaning of this word is that one is traveling without reference to a goal or destination. There is, implicit in this term, a feeling or emotional/mental mindset of aloneness, restlessness, shared solitude, and indifferent scenery. The winds blow cold and harshly for the wanderer. The sun beats down mercilessly for the wanderer. Few there are who use that term who feel that it is desirable to be a wandering spirit. All of the third-density instinct is towards putting down the roots, securing the home, and protecting the home and family. The wanderer is uprooted when gazed at in the cultural context that you enjoy upon your sphere. Therefore, it is natural that this term be chosen as descriptive of those who have come into the Earth’s sphere of influence and incarnated to become as one with all citizens of your Earth.

So, at the heart of being a wanderer is that feeling of dislocation, of being in the world but not of the world in which you find yourselves. Because this situation seems full of discomfort many who have wandered here are simply miserable without finding any comfort. To respond to that need for comforting some who have responded have leaned in their discussions heavily towards comforting wanderers by encouraging a sense of separation from native Earth humans. We do not encourage this line of thought because each wanderer, in coming into your Earth’s sphere of influence, took upon it the responsibility of citizenship of this Earth. As much as any other native inhabitant, wanderers will be expected to walk the steps of light when this incarnational experience is at an end, and, just as much as any native inhabitant of Earth, if the steps are walked to a point of comfort within third density the wanderer shall not return to its home vibratory nexus but, rather, shall continue in third density until graduation is achieved.

Therefore, we greatly encourage all wanderers to take up the burden of a dual existence, for that is precisely why you have put yourselves to this task. As difficult and disagreeable as it sometimes is to live with this double vibratory pattern, this difficulty is worthwhile and one hundred times worthwhile, for the basic vocation of every wanderer is to bear witness to the light and the love of the one infinite Creator. Therefore, the life may be seen to be full of everyday matters, yet offer ample time and space for the spiritual vocation to which wanderers have called themselves, that of bearing witness.

The Question for this session was: “What does Q’uo have to say to those who have discovered that they are wanderers to be of service to others, and what would Q’uo have to say to those wanderers who have not discovered that they are wanderers?” Q’uo said that the term “wanderer” refers to one who is restless, alone, and travels without a goal or destination and is totally at odds with the normal third density entity that has a home, a family, and puts down roots, and yet the wanderer has incarnated to become one with the citizens of Earth. Q’uo went on to say that the life of the wanderer is often one of feeling out of place and miserable to the point of wanting to separate themselves from other entities, but Q’uo discouraged this approach because, like all other entities, at the end of its life here it will walk the steps of light, and if it has not served others beyond the point of its own comfort it will have to repeat the third density. So Q’uo suggested that wanderers take up the task of accepting their dual nature of living the everyday life in which they might take up the spiritual journey of bearing witness to the love and light of the infinite Creator. On May 20, 2005, Q’uo spoke about the life of a wanderer:

We would offer a few observations and comments upon the condition of being a wanderer and are pleased that you have requested our opinions on this matter.

The wanderer is as one who has sacrificed a great deal in order to risk the forgetting process and enter into incarnation for service to others. It is a courageous decision to make, and we congratulate the one known as C on having plunged into incarnation in third density for such a loving and service-to-others reason.

The nature of service to others is often greatly misunderstood among your peoples because the emphasis, as we said recently to the one known as T, is so often construed to be that of doing in outer service to others that mounts up or amounts to something in the eyes of the world. Certainly, you have already in this incarnation offered service to others of a substantial kind that has indeed come to the notice of the world. However, we ask you to think of yourself as a crystalline being whose nature is basically to share your beauty with the world, with yourself, and with the infinite Creator. If you can think of yourself as a gem or a crystal, then you shall be able perhaps to come close to understanding what we are talking about when we say that the heart of service to others is in the essence of your being rather than in the details of your outer service.

And how does a wanderer bear this witness? It might seem that witnesses are best when they are expressing by words that witness to which they hew, yet this actually is not so. Rather, wanderers may best bear witness by being most fully themselves, for it is the basic vibratory complex carried in the violet ray by each wanderer that is witness by its very essence. Therefore, the wanderer’s job in everyday affairs is to keep the channel of selfhood and essence clean, clear and pellucid. This is in many ways a passive spiritual vocation. It is easier to make the mistake of attempting to speak this witness and not being understood or of service than to refrain from some activity and, therefore, fail to bear witness.

The planetary consciousness is drinking in your essence. It is lightening the planetary vibration and is acting as an ameliorator of birth pangs within the planet itself and within the great congregation of entities which now approach your millennium. Inconvenient and difficult times beckon. Within these confusing times the silent witness of being shall more and more be needed as the planet reaches for a new point of balance.

We encourage each so to arrange the daily habits that the center of being is given respect and pride of place within the daily life. As always, we suggest a daily meditation, a turning in and out of season towards that infinity which is the inarticulated Love of the one infinite Creator. The challenge for each wanderer is to be able to dwell in this particular illusion, to enter fully into the processes of becoming a transformation yet remain at the center of being, consciously turning again and again to Love itself.

To those who feel somewhat dislocated and alienated by the outward environment, but who have not yet decided for sure that they are wanderers, we say to each that it is well to act as if you are a wanderer, for that which wanderers came here to do is that which all may help by attempting to do. For at heart, all are wanderers. We, as well as you. All have wandered from that inarticulated Love which is the one infinite Creator. We have wandered through many, many creations and have experienced manifestation upon manifestation. Within each place we have found eventually the one infinite Creator, and as we have found the Creator, we have felt that homecoming. Yet as soon as that is felt the new challenge arises, the new day dawns, a new lesson is to be learned, and once again the restless wandering begins within.

May each wanderer find comfort in the knowledge that it cannot help contributing positively to the planetary vibration. Even with what seems to be gross mismanagement of time and energy, yet still in that very basic alienated mindset there dwells that vibration which is fuller with light. This very alienation is simply a surface symptom of a deep and spiritual gift. Comfort yourself when the heart is heavy and the feelings bruised with the knowledge that you are being of service. You are doing that which you came to do. You may find ways to do it better, but you are not failing no matter what it seems like. In the great circle of creation we salute each brave soul who has chosen this sacrificial honor. The one known as Brother Philip has said, “The crown shall weigh heavy upon the head, yet you shall wear it and you shall serve under it.” May this be most truly so for each.

Then Q’uo said that wanderers bear witness to their purpose for being incarnate on Earth by their very essence and keeping their channel of selfhood clean and clear so that their essence lightens the planetary vibration as difficult times for the planet reach a new point of balance. Q’uo continued by suggesting that wanderers should use daily meditation to make contact with the Love of the infinite Creator while they are also becoming a part of the transformation of the population of Earth.  Q’uo said that everyone should act as if they are wanderers for each entity has wandered away from the unity with the Creator in order to be of service to others and the learning of lessons that become new challenges, and once again the wandering begins within. Q’uo completed their reply by saying that the wanderer will make a positive contribution to the planetary vibrations even when they feel alienated because that alienation is a sign of a deep, spiritual gift that allows the wanderer to know that it is doing what it has come to Earth to do even when its heart is heavy, and its feelings are bruised. On December 7, 2019, Q’uo gave a summary of the purpose for wanderers incarnating on Earth at this time:

Wanderers are a breed of being which contain a certain kind of desire that is of such strength to move into the third-density illusion of misunderstanding, of confusion, of disharmony, of a lack of any sense of the self as being any more than that which is born and that which shall live a certain number of years, and then die. This requires a certain degree of bravery, shall we say, for there is the great chance that the wanderer may not be able to remember its desired programming for the incarnation.

Each wanderer has in common with each other wanderer the first and most basic desire that is—by its very being, of expressing love to others—to be able to enhance the vibratory patterns and intensity of the Earth plane, the third-density illusion, which is in such chaotic stress that the feeling of love has the potential to reduce the level of stress and increase opportunities for clearer perceptions beyond and through the chaos, the confusion, the disharmony, and so forth.

All wanderers have, as another goal, the desire to provide certain specific services according to their unique talents. Some become teachers of spiritual principles, some become healers of mental, emotional, spiritual, or physical difficulties, some become those who may be seen as creative artists that express through word, through paintings, through music, the love and light of the One Infinite Creator, the unity of all creation, and so forth. Others, simply go about a daily round of activities, in what could be seen as a normal third-density experience, being mothers, fathers, teachers, clerks, bishops, and so forth, and in this attempt to serve, offer that love vibration which colors each service in a fashion which those entities receiving the service become aware of, if not on the conscious level, then upon the sub-conscious level, so that the effect is, shall we say, vibrating love from the foundation of one’s being, upward and outward into the conscious expression of one’s own unique being.

We would, at this time, ask if there are any queries.

[Pause]

We thank you. The ones of Hatonn wished only to place the basic vibration upon the tape in order that comfort may be given to one who hears.

We once again thank each for gathering to seek within spirituality for that ultimate reality which beckons. How confusing it is to have chosen to become manifestations of Love. At the point at which we all are it seems very strange that we as Creator chose to become co-Creators, moving in and out of illusion after illusion. Yet that which is infinite calls for more and more, and each carries that eternal stillness and the eternal free will within. The combination creates that which is just, and right, and good. Yes, you shall suffer, but this suffering is infinitely worthwhile.

We leave this instrument and this group in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai, vasu.

This morning I went across the street to my neighbor’s flower garden and weeded it by hand as our recent rains have made this most effective way of weeding possible so that you get the weed and its roots as well. When I came back home, I went into the garage and used my air compressor to be sure that all of the tires on Stanley are at least at 32 psi as I will be traveling to Nashville, TN. tomorrow to visit with Anna, to meet her husband, Brandon and their new little kitten, Hibachi.

This afternoon I used my trimmer to go around the yard and complete the trimming of weeds that I began yesterday. Then I began transplanting the Sun Patiens that I bought yesterday into the clay tile pipes that I have placed in the form of a pyramid in front of the Secret Garden in the back yard. I got the top of the pyramid planted and added some soil to the second layer of clay tile pipes because the recent rains had condensed the soil so that where the 4 inch pipes were setting at the back of the 10 inch pipes the 4 inch pipes were unstable.

The Hope Of Light

I am the living spirit of the consciousness of Love.

I am of a principle of being without personality as you know it, of being rooted in and upheld in Love, in a Love that is clear, undiluted and bright, a Love that may dance within the light of those who dwell even in the innermost shades of the earthly life and illumine those dark penumbras of living.

Consider yourselves among those who have every hope of light and love regardless of the situation which appears before you. For the Spirit of the living God penetrates to every heart.

The peace of Christ 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, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from May 1, 1994:

A question about relationships this afternoon. We have noticed that people in relationships that seem to have the best time, to stay together the longest, and who enjoy each other the most are people who don’t let the little oddities of their partner’s behavior bother them all that much. Some people can actually get so upset over these little things that they divorce, and I guess that a lot of divorces come from the cumulative experience of a lot of little things that one can’t stand about the other. We are wondering what kind of transformation has to take place within the self for a person to move from where the little oddities in their partner’s behavior no longer bother one, and in fact become a lovable part of the other person’s image, and how does one move from the rejection of another to the acceptance of another and how does this happen within the self?

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is a blessing and a privilege to greet you on this day of transition from your cold to your warmer season. We thank each for calling us to your circle of seeking, and we share our humble thoughts with you most thankfully, asking only that you listen to our thoughts keeping that which seems of worth and truth to you and disregarding the remainder, for while we wish to be of service, we do not wish to become a stumbling block for any. Therefore, we ask that you invoke your own discrimination, for you will recognize that truth which is for you.

A query concerning relationships is always most welcome to us for the essence of third-density learn/teaching and teach/learning is that there are other selves, to which one must relate in choosing the manner of that relationship with others. The choice of polarity becomes first recognized and then made. The third-density physical vehicle was designed to function only in what you may call the family. By oneself one cannot reproduce and create new life. Without other selves working in cooperation, your own self will be unable to create a meeting of all needs. The essence of what you may call human is an absolute need for relationships with other selves.

Now, we have often pointed out that the other self in its interaction with you acts as a kind of a reflective surface or a mirror, reflecting back to you your own image, for that to which you are drawn or from which you are repelled in others is a somewhat distorted image of that within the self which has not come to the light of self-perception.

Thusly, when one sees that which is good in another, one does well to contemplate this positive reaction to discover that which one may by reflection discover the nature of the self and the self-perceived virtues. Similarly, when one is disturbed by another, one does well to reflect upon this event to discover what it is within the hidden self that the self perceives as wanting, unworthy or in error. Yet these descriptions would almost create the image of the self as actually separate, a “Monet” if you will. Within a universe created completely of mirrors this is not the case, although the work one does is upon oneself, if it be excellent work. Yet still in the process of working upon the self, other selves offer the opportunity for service, the service which you offer to another by being needy and needing that from another which will help you. It is as important to be able to receive love and kindness as it is to offer love and charity.

So, the other self is the self yet not the self. The reactions to the other self are the business of the self. That which is proactive, not responsive but creative with regard to another self is often that service which you may best offer that particular other self. We speak always about love. Our message continues to be simple, to the point of confounding the wise. We ask you to open to the Love of the infinite Creator; we ask you to become aware of the presence of this Love as the center of the life; we ask you that you work towards creating within the self a channel for that infinite Love so that this highest truth may be attested to by the solid witness of your being.

Now, could you accomplish this, you would be dwelling within the fourth density at this time. It is expected and appreciated that the nature of learning is the attempt and often the failure to manifest the infinite Love of the infinite Creator. This is not the sort of test wherein one must study, memorize, and accomplish a right answer. Living as a witness to an infinite Love is the kind of test that occurs when one is being observed but not stimulated by a teacher. The teacher rather watches as the spontaneous and natural rhythms of life are created and expressed moment by moment throughout the incarnation.

The watcher of your life is your own self in its higher manifestation, and at the end of this test, upon the dissolution of the bond between physical and spiritual self, this higher self shall dwell with you, gazing through the record of the days and years of this incarnation. There will be the center of the balance of this particular incarnation perceived. Its perception will be accurate and precise. As the spiritual self walks what has been called the steps of light, those who stop at a certain level shall be within third density again, those who stop and feel comfortable at a somewhat fuller light shall be those who take up higher density lessons for the next incarnation.

The question for this session was: “We are wondering what kind of transformation has to take place within the self for a person to move from where the little oddities in their partner’s behavior no longer bother one; and in fact, become a lovable part of the other person’s image; and how does one move from the rejection of another to the acceptance of another; and how does this happen within the self?” Q’uo began their response by saying that in the third density relationships are the way that entities interact in order to eventually make the choice of one’s polarity. Q’uo continued by saying that one way of engaging in relationships is the mirroring effect where each person reflects to each other person qualities that are appreciated or rejected because of one’s lack of knowledge of these qualities within the self, so Q’uo suggested that contemplation upon these qualities to discover that which one appreciates about the self that is hidden within the self, and that which is lacking within the self and is unappreciated. Q’uo went on to say that this mirroring process is a way that each person offers a service to others in the way of giving love by using our positive reflective images and receiving love by being needy for it according to what seems lacking in us because this eventually allows us to become a channel for the infinite Love of the Creator. Then Q’uo said that this is the way that we achieve graduation into the fourth density as our higher self has observed our giving of love, and when we drop our physical body and walk into the light that will help us to be able to take up the lessons of the higher density. On September 23, 2023, Q’uo used the group in South America that had 150 fourth-density graduates who were able to walk into the light and achieve the fourth density:

The South American entities to which you refer, were those who had, in previous incarnations, been able to realize more of the nature of the creation than most third-density entities are able to realize. This was because, though they were part of what you may call a primitive society, they had very advanced spiritual practices which had been initiated, shall we say, by contact with what you would call Confederation sources that gave them the type of information which we attempt to share with you at this time: information that regards the spiritual path within the third density that has as its goal the opening of the green-ray energy center, the heart center, in unconditional love.

When this is done, as was done by these entities in another incarnation, on another planet, they are then able to feel the love of the Creator, and to express it to others in a manner which enhances the beingness of those giving the love and those receiving.

Thus, when they were able to move out of their third-density bodies and walk into the light that would determine their ability to share unconditional love, they found that they had been able to do so in a manner which was congruent with being, shall we say, harvested into the fourth density of love and understanding. However, they were part of a larger group, which had not been able to make this choice in the degree as made by them. Thus, they felt it was important to continue their journeys on this planet within the third density in order to aid their brothers and sisters who had yet to make this choice.

Therefore, one cannot maintain a mentality of a spiritual homework beyond a certain point, for the homework is for a test that will not be held within your lifetime. You see, the self seldom has any very accurate notion of its own essential issues, needs and excellences. Rather, the self tends to perceive the self in a fairly distorted pattern because the self is so hidden from the conscious mind, and because the self within the flesh cannot truly see the self within, there is that veil drawn.

So, to begin to be able to make the transformation about which your query spoke one must first begin to allow the judgment of the self concerning the self to fade away and become unimportant, for there is no possibility of accurate judgment of the self by the self. It is well to examine the life as much as is possible but only in that it enables one to see into the uppermost layers of selfhood. Certainly this is valuable, however, it does not make you a judge. When one is able to lay self-judgment aside and instead to take up the solitude and the dust of the spiritual path taken on faith then is one beginning to be able to dwell and abide with others in a creative and living way.

Each self carries a great and terrible burden, that is, the self-perceived difficulties and errors and mischief which the self has seen the self think, speak, and do. No other entity who dwells with you will ever be able to share this burden with you, for even if you were able to talk, confessing every sin you could think of, every error you could remember, yet still would the self feel that such was not truly enough to wash clean human frailty. This is an accurate perception. You did not come into this incarnation to get everything right but to be a witness to love and light. You are not going to become right or better or finished but will remain one who seems to sow seeds in the wind.

The phrase, “casting one’s bread upon the waters” comes from your holy work, the Bible, and that is what each self is intended to do, to cast the love and light and being a witness unto the ever moving, ever disappearing waters of life. Indeed, one may rejoice and offer thanks when one is simply giving away love and light, for within this image in your Bible it is pointed out that if one achieves a true release of gifts, a lack of holding them in memory, then does the Law of Plenty move into action, and the self becomes conscious of receiving one hundred and one thousand times the blessing back upon those moving waters of life.

So, to become able to make the transformation from tolerating another to celebrating another—to use this instrument’s phrase—the first step is to become detached from self-judgment and unattached to one’s thoughts, words, and deeds. In that you do them, think them as well as you can, and then forget them and move onward to the next creative moment. Each entity vibrates within a certain range, this basic vibration is as a—we correct this instrument—each entity is an unique vibratory signature. It vibrates as it is, completely whole and completely clear no matter what muddle you may feel you are in. That basic vibration is completely identifiable as you and only you. This vibration, this basic signature is that which you are attempting to affect by the way you live your life and the lessons—we correct this instrument—the way you live your life and the way you concern yourself and deal with the lessons of love you encounter along the King’s Highway, as this instrument would put it.

By choosing again and again to serve others, by choosing to seek the Creator in the self, in others, in creation, and in the center of the being, you attempt to affect the narrowing of the gap between your vibratory signature and the basic pure vibration which created all things, that infinite Creator’s Thought or Logos of Love.

Now Q’uo said that the conscious mind of the self is unaware of its nature because the veil of forgetting keeps the self from seeing its true nature, so they suggested that in order to make the transformation of acceptance of another we should lay aside any judgement of ourselves, and then we can begin our spiritual journey in a way of being able to live with others in a creative way. They went on to say that when we can release the burden of self-judgement then we can become a witness of love and light which is like “casting one’s bread upon the waters” and experiencing the return of love and light a hundred or a thousand times more from the waters of life. Then Q’uo said that: “By choosing again and again to serve others, by choosing to seek the Creator in the self, in others, in creation, and in the center of the being, you attempt to affect the narrowing of the gap between your vibratory signature and the basic pure vibration which created all things, that infinite Creator’s Thought or Logos of Love.” On May 6, 1979, Hatonn described the value of seeking the Creator:

Thus, we ask you to meditate. Find not only the love within you but that unique and special love that is within you with all of its unique and special gifts. You know that some can give in one and some in another way. On all levels, some can speak; and some can listen; and some can cook; some can sing; some can hold their arms out to children; some can nurture old people; some have the gift of silence and others that of words. When you know who you are, then your gifts will flow therefrom, and it will be a free-flowing brook, one which is not stopped by the distortion of doubt. This can only be done by daily meditation, seeking the Creator Who is the seed and the source of the Love that is you.

So you have a relative vibration, that is, relative to the Creator. A great many incarnations are consumed in the slow and inevitable progression and narrowing of that gap betwixt the self and the All Self. This vibration may be seen to be that which is of love and of fear, these are the two basic dynamics within the vibratory levels. To be simplistic we would say that there is always some ratio of fear to love, however the greater the love, the greater the life, the greater the fear, the greater the death, for that which is alive, creative and moving is of love, and that which is judging and defending and inwardly focusing beyond a certain point is of death.

When one attempts to learn tolerance of another one is attempting to be able to accept another in complete love and lack of judgment. To the extent that this is accomplished there is a great benefit to the self, to the other self, and to the Creator. When one finds that one must engage in judging, in defending against and so forth, then one is dealing with emotions which may be identified with the death, or the forces of death.

We speak now of death not in the sense of your living things which bloom and die, but rather we are speaking of that which is of the Creator and that which is separate from the Creator. That is, all things are of the Creator but within your illusion and, indeed, in many illusions beyond your own the—we correct this instrument—there is an apparent choice between energies which move to a fuller life and energies which separate one from life.

There is a great and intensive battle within for your attention from both your deeper self and from the energies which surround you. Constantly you move within a spiritual atmosphere which is flowing and continuous, which never stops in its movements, and which is greatly affected by desire and intention. It is within this intuitively perceived sea of being that you swim, shall we say, or sail, either towards the unity of love which is the Creator or towards that archipelago of perceived self and other selves which is the seascape of the service-to-self entity who perceives the self apart from all by choice, and controlling all for the best good.

The battle is fought for the heart of the self and sometimes a seeker may begin to think that he has more than one self within him, so full of contradictions does the wandering vagaries of selfhood seem. Thusly, to move from tolerance to celebration of others, the first challenge is to begin to perceive the self within this larger view which does not judge but rather uses energy in a positive and creative manner, in self-acceptance, self-forgiveness and self-empowerment. To keep faith, continue in hope and do all such good works as open before the eyes.

When this has been perceived as a goal towards which to move, then it is that the self becomes able to extend this charity to other selves. We would offer the model of the way things are that the one known as Jesus offered when this entity described the situation where the sower sows a crop which another shall harvest. When this crop of love and positive desire is sown with a glad and merry heart it then becomes more and more possible to begin to see through the veil, to perceive for the first time the extent to which others sow for you to reap. How rich each is in the harvest given by others to the self, and how much richer shall the self be as it learns more and more to sow those seeds of love and virtue with a careless and generous hand, not waiting for the self to applaud but moving on, practicing the presence of love. Lift the eyes from the page of life and you shall see far more between the lines.

Then Q’uo said that we all have a relationship with the Creator that is evolving over time in the way of love which enhances life and creativity, and of fear and judging which enhances death. Q’uo went on to say that by loving and accepting others we enhance our own being, their being, and serve the Creator, but if we engage in judgment, we enhance fear and death in the sense that we are separated from the Creator and from life. Then Q’uo said that there is often a kind of battle within our deeper mind and within the spiritual atmosphere around us that is fought according to our desire and intentions either towards the unity of the love of the Creator or towards the seeming separation of the self from others. Q’uo went on to say that this battle is for the heart of our self and is a process of loving and forgiving ourselves so that we may also love and forgive others and sow the seeds of love generously and faithfully practice the presence of love. On January 16, 1994, Q’uo described a way in which we can practice the presence of love:

Retain the awareness of that consciousness that does not resist destiny, and school yourself as far as possible to create the response to stimulus which is positive and says, “Yes, I will accept this change and will be sustained in it by the presence of love.” Call upon your own faith, feel strongly the hope which abides, and attempt to remember that all those changes have to do with lessons about loving. You are experiencing manyness; you seek infinity. You are experiencing concern and questioning, doubt and worry. Bring in, too, remembrance, love. All things will pass away except love. You are love, you just don’t know it yet. Give yourself and the illusion time.

At this time, we would ask if there are continuing queries upon this interesting subject?

Questioner: Not from me Q’uo, but I really enjoyed what you had to say, thank you very much.

Q’uo: We thank you, my brother. This has been a very good group.

Questioner: No question from me Q’uo, I just enjoyed… [inaudible].

Q’uo: We humbly thank you, my brother.

How we love you! How beautiful you are to us! We see you wanting so much to cherish each other. Cherish yourselves, and then turn the eyes towards the infinite One, and your instinct shall more and more be that which does celebrate others, that which does have charity and wisdom towards others. These are natural ways. You are simply relearning them. Never doubt that behind the veil of suffering and limitation lies a land where love is visible. But hold fast to that faith and let it be the rock upon which you stand, with arms open to receive love… and hearts open to give it. May you truly celebrate and enable each other as you walk along the King’s Highway.

We thank each again for the joy of your company and the beauty of your shining hope. We leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning I used my trimmer to go all around the yard and weed any garden that could be weeded with the trimmer which included the gardens around the fishpond, the Sun Mandala behind the garage, the area around the cross, the astilbe garden, and the striped liriope garden in the back yard, and then I had to quit working outside as a thunderstorm began with heavy rain.

This afternoon I went on an errand run with my first stop being at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. My second stop was at Walgreens’ Drug Store to buy a card for my aunt, some clothes detergent, and some Pepsi Zero. My last stop was at The Home Depot where I bought some Sun Patiens that I plan to plant in the pyramid that I made out of the clay tile pipes that used to be part of the drainage system for my sump pumps in the basement. When I got home I hand-weeded the Vanilla-Strawberry Hydrangea Bushes in front of the fishpond.

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

Love Yourself

I am of the principle of the Love of Christ. I greet you in the full consciousness of Love.

Black despair surrounds the soul which is not at harmony with itself. The eye, turned inward, can be dismayed by the various imperfections which the eye seems to see in the self.

Yet this disparaging eye shuts the door to Spirit, which awaits self-acceptance that it may shine forth from the self to the glory of the Creator and for the blessing of those about one.

Condemnation of the self is never productive when it is done to the exclusion of the reaffirmation of the Love of that self which the Creator has made. Love yourself. Only then can you love your neighbor and the Creator of that Love which is you.

 We leave you in 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, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from April 10, 1994:

The question today has to do with communication, and what is it that we really communicate when we are speaking with each other. We live in an illusion. We experience the catalyst to help us grow. And we’re wondering… beyond the words of small talk, and the intentions and the emotions and the concepts and the way we say things, there seems to be something else of a deeper nature that is communicated when we really communicate. And we’re wondering what it is that is communicated, and how this works through the various forms and means of communication that we use?

(Carla channeling)

Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo, and we are most grateful to have been called to your session of working this afternoon. The topic is communication, and since we are communicating on communication, perhaps we have a theme this particular session.

Think back, if you will, to your experiences as trees, rocks, sunlight. In all of these states of beingness you have experienced the essence of the infinite Creator without reaching for any word or, indeed, any thing. The first and second densities are certainly filled with sound, however, there is little conversation. It is in the third density when the self becomes self-conscious, that the desire to communicate is born as a basic instinct and urge. Even the little child new to manifestation seeks for the sound of the parent, which communicates. The tiny infant has the instinct to select and prefer the sound vibrations made by the mother and the father, those figures who give sustenance and improve comfort. Already, before the infant becomes aware that words carry specific messages, this third-density entity instinctually is reaching for that sound, hoping for that comfort:  the human voice. Beyond all meanings of words, the human voice sings its way through life. Although few hear the music of spoken words, yet nevertheless, they do have tune and cadences. Subtle though these patterns may be, they carry the breath: the air which is breathed in and exhaled.

The essence of manifested third-density life is breath. This breath is that which signals the aliveness of the present moment. One who is able to breathe is that one who is alive now. The breath of life is deeply intertwined with the Spirit, both the Spirit within and that Spirit which strengthens. In a way, each time the human voice is heard, the tune is that of the infinite Creator whose property alone it is to give life.

This is the density wherein entities such as yourselves appear like flowers to bloom, blossom, bear fruit, wither, and die. During this natural process, which is instinctual to your flesh, the life within focuses upon the lessons of love which third density brings. These lessons are those given by each to each, shared back and forth across the seemingly uncrossable chasms betwixt entities. It is in this density that each has the opportunity to make the choice between service to self and service to others, and in the process of creating that first choice and then deepening that choice with successive ones, the human voice is everywhere.

Each entity spends much breath upon its own self, perhaps talking out loud even to the self, or if not, certainly carrying on internal conversation. In the attempt to discover the true point of balance that lies patiently within each and every human situation, if we may call it that, there is a kind of solitude native to third density that is never before and never afterwards experienced with the same intensity. That solitude, that feeling of aloneness, is due to the veil of forgetting having been dropped, so that those within your density simply cannot recall the unity betwixt the self and all others. This is the density where teachers are more and more important—those who are able to use their breath to speak support, comfort and challenge to those whom they would aid.

The question today has to do with communication, and what is it that we really communicate when we are speaking with each other? We live in an illusion. We experience the catalyst to help us grow.  And we’re wondering what it is that is communicated, and how this works through the various forms and means of communication that we use? Q’uo began by saying that second density trees, rocks, and sunlight always experience the essence of the Creator without any sounds being necessary, but it is in the third density that the desire to communicate with sound begins with the infant seeking the comfort of the sounds of the parent and eventually the sounds of the Spirit of the Creator within us gives life to words. Q’uo went on to say that it is in the third density, through the process of many incarnations, that we learn the lessons of love and communicate them in different ways in order to make the choice of service to others or to the self so that the human voice is heard at all times in this choice. Then Q’uo said that this choice comes from the situation of solitude that is experienced due to the veil of forgetting that requires that the interactions with others be used to find that true point of balance that exists in every human interaction which is based upon the unity of the self with all others. On March 19, 1989, Hatonn spoke of the unity of the self with all of the creation:

For as you have become familiar with the concept of unity of self with all of the creation, this concept indeed begins to make itself more obviously apparent, or shall we say, apparently obvious, as one sees the connections between the self and each particle of the creation, and begins to see that there is that of value in each portion of the creation and is that which might teach or inform the self as the self moves through its currently perceived experiences.

All this is to say, my sister, that your supposition, though correct in its foundation, is somewhat oversimplified, as is our explanation in response to it with the words we have used, for the nature of one’s being at the heart of one’s being partakes of this unity which is unshakable and is the primary foundation stone upon which all of the creation is built.

What is that essence which the human voice, then, carries? It is the essence of Love. Each voice you hear is the voice of the one infinite Creator, experienced through distortion upon distortion, yet, nevertheless, unmistakably alive, clear and vivid. Each voice is the voice of the one infinite Mystery. To relate to others within your density is often a difficult matter because the voice of the infinite Creator is a spontaneous one, whereas within your illusion it seems that, in many cases, events conspire to remove spontaneity. Then, the manners and the rights and rituals of words take over. The spontaneity drops away and the politeness, the courtesy, the cultural amenities take over. Yet, even with these meaningless conversations there is the vital essence of love carried within those sound vibrations, for love is not that which can be experienced directly. For the most part there is an indirect experience, the sensor web of the perception making choice upon choice concerning what is heard and what is said. Yet, faith and fellowship can be carried along the most meaningless conversation.

Fellow feeling is most valuable in a world in which each cannot know that another is a safe person to be next to. The darkness of the veil has dropped upon you, and though you can remember dimly how it was not to have to explain, not to have to do aught else except simply exist to be in full communication, still, those dim memories do not serve to carry one through the seemingly endless meetings and cycles of meetings and greetings that go on within your everyday existences.

Know that the human voice has great power. Know that when you vibrate your voice and speak, you are expressing beneath the words the essence of life as you are experiencing it. That is, you are expressing your breath—that which, when it is gone from your physical vehicle, shall signal your absence. How precious that breath! How short the time to use it well. Know that when you hear the human voice, you hear the infinite Creator in all of Its Love. Remember when you speak that the essence of that sound you make needs to be the Love of the infinite Creator. Your breath specifically expresses that Love. What shapes shall you place your sound vibrations into, then, to harmonize with that tune which is Love? May your speaking be a blessing. May you be blessed by an overwhelming number of voices of Love, for, truly, all you meet are Love.

Do we need to say that often this Love is in deep disguise? Therefore, may you always have the patience to wend your way through the dry and brittle valleys of difficult communication-clearing. May you have the faith to continue communicating past anger, past tears, until the words you speak are shapes that again harmonize withove.

Now Q’uo said that all we truly hear in the third density is the voice of the Love of the Creator which we hear in a distorted way because so many rites and rituals in our lives conspire to take us away from hearing the Creator’s voice of Love. Then Q’uo said that even with these meaningless conversations the essence of Love is always within these words because Love cannot be experienced directly, so our faith and fellowship will carry us through to Love. Q’uo went on to say that our voice, the breath of our life, is that which is speaking the Love of the Creator; and we are being the Love of the Creator; and everyone that we meet is also the voice of the Creator’s Love, so we should never let anger, tears, or any confusion keep us from continuing our communication until we are able to harmonize with Love again. On May 12, 1985, Hatonn said that we are all the voice of the Creator:

As the evening rays begin to fall upon your dwelling, you can feel before you the swelling maturity of the earth about you, the weighty roll of the waters onto the earth, and the majesty of the eternal sky. It is a wondrous creation, and the silence of the Creator pervades it, deeper, more quiet, more peaceful than can be imagined outside of meditation. And yet, just as much a part of the Creator are all the sounds made by children, colleagues, wives, husbands, children, and friends. Each is the voice of the Creator, filtered through many biases. There are times when two recognize each other, and for a magical period of the incarnation there seem to be no biases; communication seems clear; and life seems ebullient. It is rare that these periods extend throughout the incarnational experience. Nevertheless, we may suggest to each of you that memories of times when closeness had been achieved are very helpful in orienting the self towards the discovery of the biases that separate you from that same harmony at a more difficult time.

We would close this meeting through the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument. We are those of Q’uo.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light. At this time we would ask if there are any queries to which we may speak—those thoughts upon your minds which have arisen during our speaking.

Questioner: I have a question for Q’uo. I wanted to ask, as we attempt to be of service to others, can we help others communicate? Can we help them with improving their communication… not really having a good grasp of it ourselves?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. As you speak and exchange experiences with those about you, you are aiding in every aspect of each entity’s evolution, for there is no other thing that can be done. All experience is the Creator experiencing Itself. Thus, you may partake more and more fully in this identity as the Creator as you are able to engage more of your own being in that which you experience.

We realize that you ask about ways to serve others, and appreciate the dedication that you express. We wish to give you the comfort of knowledge that tells you that you aid others well by each activity you undertake, for there are indeed no mistakes. And we encourage each to continue to seek the deepest level of communication with the self and with all other selves. Thus, you consciously move yourselves in the direction of your realized unification.

Is there another query, my brother?

Questioner: Yes, I would ask you if… I’ll say the question this way: as you, as I, as someone who attempts to be of service tries to communicate with another, is it possible to do this by just opening yourself inside to the unspoken words and questions of the other person, and perhaps say no words and yet still communicate your desire to help just by listening? Are there any… do you have to actually speak the words, because of free will, to be of service? Is that a clear question?

I am Q’uo, and am indeed aware of your query, my brother. We would take those words which you have spoken well—the concept of opening the self to the desire to serve—and suggest that this is a foundation stone upon which your service to others may be built, and indeed in some instances this may be the only activity necessary. However, in most of your endeavors with other selves you will find it is also helpful to offer one’s self when the need is seen in a more outward fashion. However, the beginning of any service is that opening of the heart to the concept of service and to the desire to serve.

Is there another query, my brother?

Questioner: No, thank you, but that is all for me and [inaudible].

I am Q’uo, and we thank you once again, my brother. Is there another query?

Questioner: Yes, I have one. Aside from the physical communication human beings have, is there something deeper that goes between two people when they’re talking? Aside from… I know you spoke of the love, or breath… Are there other energies that are being communicated during conversation?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. Indeed, at the heart of each communication and all experience there is a portion of the Creator which seeks Itself. Thus, there is the yearning between those portions of the One which have traveled outward from the One, traveling through the One, seeking the One, and becoming again that which is One, while realizing that there has always been only One.

Is there any other query, my brother?

Questioner: No, not at this time. I think I’ll give that one some thought.

Carla: So, each conversation is a love song. Is that what you’re saying? The yearning to… The voice is actually that expression of not having made it back to unity yet, and there’s a yearning. Is that right?

I am Q’uo, and you are quite eloquently correct, my sister. Is there another query?

Carla: No, but thank you. That was a great thought there.

I am Q’uo, and we agree that there is no greater thought than that which posits the song of the Creator as the great chant of the Universe.

Is there a final query at this time?

Questioner: I’ll just say that I wish to communicate that you have communicated [inaudible] to this group [inaudible] Confederation. Thank you very much.

Questioner: Thank you, Q’uo.

I am Q’uo, and we again give our great gratitude to each present for sharing with us your seeking, your questions, and your sense of unity. We appreciate your effort immensely, and walk with you upon this journey, rejoicing with each step, each experience, each exchange.

We shall take our leave of your group only in an illusory fashion at this time, for in truth, we shall always walk with you. We are known to you as those of Q’uo, and we leave each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai.

This morning I went outside and decided to begin weeding all of my flower gardens because we got two inches of rain last night, and weeds are likely to come out by the roots when the ground is wet. I began by weeding the Ruins Garden, the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden, and the astilbe garden by hand.

This afternoon I went back outside and weeded the Yellow Creeping Jenny Garden by hand. We got another inch and a half of rain this afternoon, so tomorrow I look forward to more weeding by hand in the rest of the yard.

I am thinking of you today, Dan D. Lion, on the second anniversary of your passing into larger life as one of the sweetest kitty cats I have ever known and loved.

Where Is Freedom?

I am the presence of Jesus the Christ in the world today. I greet you in the full consciousness of divine Love.

This is the day of American freedom, the day of flags and celebrations. As you look around you, behind the smiles of celebration lie great discords and this you see: discord between man and self, between man and man, between mates, between parents and children, and between nation and nation.

You may then think to yourself that freedom is not full. Yet we say to you that you are free, that your freedom is in Christ, and that you have the freedom to extend hands of divine love, peace, and unity, eyes that smile with consolation and pardon.

You have the spirit that makes the broken whole. You need only ask, for the spirit of Christ is with you all, and Its peace embraces all, both now and evermore.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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