I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 66.17-.18:
“Questioner: I assume that the reason for assuming the distortions appropriate would be that these distortions would aid the entity in its reaching its ultimate objective, which is a movement along the path of evolution in the desired polarity. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Then in the case of an entity who becomes aware of its polarization with respect to service to others, it might find a paradoxical situation in the case where it was unable to fully serve because of distortions chosen to reach that understanding which it has reached. At this point it would seem that the entity who was aware of the mechanism might, through meditation, understand the necessary mental configuration for alleviating the physical distortion so that it could be of greater service to others at this particular nexus. Am I correct in this thinking?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct although we might note that there are often complex reasons for the programming of a distorted physical complex pattern. In any case, meditation is always an aid to knowing the self.”
In the question and answer previous to these two questions and answers Ra said that some entities consciously desire healing greatly but are not healed because on some level they realize that their distorted/diseased condition allows them to pursue a certain lesson that has not yet been learned. So in this first question Don asked Ra if such an entity might benefit from meditating on its condition to learn more about what the lessons are that remain for it to learn and thusly be healed. Ra agreed but noted that very often we program very complex lessons that result in a distorted physical complex. In 83.27, Ra described how so many people on Earth are not able to grasp their pre-incarnative lessons:
Questioner: Now, in some cases it seems that this use of catalyst is almost in a runaway condition for some entities; that they are experiencing much more pain than they can make good use of as far as catalytic nature would be concerned. Could you comment on our present condition in the illusion with respect to that particular subject?
Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last query of this working of a full length.
You may see, in some cases, an entity which, either by pre-incarnative choice or by constant reprogramming while in incarnation, has developed an esurient program of catalyst. Such an entity is quite desirous of using the catalyst and has determined, to its own satisfaction, that what you may call the large board needs to be applied to the forehead in order to obtain the attention of the self.
In these cases it may indeed seem a great waste of the catalyst of pain; and a distortion towards feeling the tragedy of so much pain may be experienced by the other-self. However, it is well to hope that the other-self is grasping that which it has gone to some trouble to offer itself; that is, the catalyst which it desires to use for the purpose of evolution.
This question and answer reminds me of so many times that people would try to heal Carla’s arthritis because they felt that a spiritual person should be physically healthy. After a while we come to learn how everything in our lives has been planned in some degree to get us where we want to go in the spiritual sense. In the following quotes Ra is speaking about Carla’s choice of arthritis being a pre-incarnative choice and our negative friends used this target of opportunity for psychic greetings:
From 67.7: At this point one of the fifth-density entities over-seeing such detuning processes determined that it would be necessary to terminate the group by what you might call magical means, as you understand ritual magic. We have previously discussed the potential for the removal of one of this group by such attack and have noted that, by far, the most vulnerable is the instrument due to its pre-incarnative physical-complex distortions.
From 68.16: The entity determines that it must needs attempt the disabling itself. By means of projection it enters the vicinity of this power source. It assesses the situation. It is bound by the First Distortion but may take advantage of any free-will distortion. The free-will, pre-incarnative distortions of the instrument with regards to the physical vehicle seem the most promising target. Any distortion away from service to others is also appropriate.
From 75.11-13: Questioner: Was the exercise of fire properly done?
Ra: I am Ra. The baton is well visualized. The conductor will learn to hear the entire score of the great music of its art.
Questioner: I assume that if this can be fully accomplished today that exercise would result in total healing of the distortions of the instrument to such an extent that operations would be unnecessary. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: What else is necessary, the instrument’s acceptance?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct, the case with this instrument being delicate, since it must totally accept much which the limitations it now experiences cause to occur involuntarily. This is a pre-incarnative choice.
Carla chose arthritis as a means of limiting her activities in the outer world and keeping her focus on the inner journey of seeking to serve the One Creator as Ra alludes to in 60.8:
Questioner: What would she do then in order to alleviate these problems?
Ra: I am Ra. As we have said, this instrument, feeling that it lacked compassion to balance wisdom, chose an incarnative experience whereby it was, of necessity, placed in situations of accepting self in the absence of other-selves’ acceptance, and the acceptance of other-self without expecting a return or energy transfer. This is not an easy program for an incarnation but was deemed proper by this entity.
This entity, therefore, must needs meditate and consciously, moment by moment, accept the self in its limitations which have been placed for the very purpose of bringing this entity to the precise tuning we are using.
Further, having learned to radiate acceptance and love without expecting return, this entity now must balance this by learning to accept the gifts of love and acceptance of others, which this instrument feels some discomfort in accepting. These two balancing workings will aid this entity in the release from the distortion called pain. The limitations are, to a great extent, fixed.
This afternoon I decided to take my trimmer all around the yard one last time to trim down all standing dead garden plants. I trimmed the ice flowers by the Flower Fall, the Astilbe in the far back yard, the various weeds on the Refuse Mound, the Iris and Black-eyed Susans on the Ruins Mound, the Hotepora in the middle of the Moss Garden, and the last of the Gladiolus by the Ruins Mound.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
Trust That Within You
I am the spirit of the living God. I greet you in the full consciousness of the love of Jesus the Christ.
The difficulty which living within the physical shell of the body creates in understanding that the spiritual path is a path of plenty and light is that the outer circumstances of the path of light seem anything but comfortable.
There is truly a narrow path whereby one may maintain contact within the self with the spirit which enlivens all things. It is best not to look for evidence of the spirit’s work within men and within the world but, rather, faithfully to rest in the trust you have in that which is unseen but which has been as a beneficent wind moving across and guiding your voyage of seeking and discovery.
Those attitudes allow one to become aware of the simple joy available to one who is not limited by the definitions of self which the limitations of the body seem to impose. Accept and respect that within you which is moved by the spirit. And listen to the inner voice as to an honored guest.
We leave you in the peace of this process of living by faith, now and ever. Amen.
I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:
We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.
