I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 74.10-11:

Questioner: Now, the disciplines of the personality I see as the paramount work of any who have become consciously aware of the process of evolution. Am I correct on that statement?

Ra: I am Ra. Quite.

Questioner: Now, what I am trying to get at is how these disciplines affect the energy centers and the power, shall I say, of the white magician. Could you . . . will you tell me how that works?

Ra: I am Ra. The heart of the discipline of the personality is threefold:

One, know yourself.

Two, accept yourself.

Three, become the Creator.

The third step is that step which, when accomplished, renders one the most humble servant of all, transparent in personality and completely able to know and accept other-selves.

In relation to the pursuit of the magical working, the continuing discipline of the personality involves the adept in knowing itself, accepting itself, and thus clearing the path towards the great indigo gateway to the Creator. To become the Creator is to become all that there is. There is, then, no personality in the sense with which the adept begins its learn/teaching. As the consciousness of the indigo ray becomes more crystalline, more work may be done; more may be expressed from intelligent infinity.”

In these questions Don asked Ra how the disciplines of the personality affect the energy centers of the white magician, and I would say that any conscious seeker of truth could be considered a white magician because the definition of white magic is to be able to create changes in consciousness at will. I believe this is the journey of a lifetime for all seekers of truth. The disciplines of the personality involve various ways that the seeker of truth can use to evolve into unity with the One Creator within each of us and the entire creation. Carla liked to call them a “rule of life.” A Morning Offering of reading the Bible’s Old and New Testaments was her way to start her day beginning when she was 12 years old. When she was 19, she added meditation. When we got the Ra contact, Ra gave us the balancing exercises which allowed us to begin to “know ourselves and accept ourselves.” Whatever catalyst that the day presented could be balanced in the evening meditation so that we could see and accept how we offered the One Creator many ways to know Itself through our processing of catalyst into experience. In 5.2, Ra shared the basic technique of how we may balance our catalyst in order to come to know ourselves and accept ourselves:

To begin to master the concept of mental discipline it is necessary to examine the self. The polarity of your dimension must be internalized. Where you find patience within your mind you must consciously find the corresponding impatience and vice versa. Each thought that a being has, has in its turn an antithesis. The disciplines of the mind involve, first of all, identifying both those things of which you approve and those things of which you disapprove within yourself, and then balancing each and every positive and negative charge with its equal. The mind contains all things. Therefore, you must discover this completeness within yourself.

The second mental discipline is acceptance of the completeness within your consciousness. It is not for a being of polarity in the physical consciousness to pick and choose among attributes, thus building the roles that cause blockages and confusions in the already-distorted mind complex. Each acceptance smooths part of the many distortions that the faculty you call judgment engenders.

The third discipline of the mind is a repetition of the first but with the gaze outward towards the fellow entities that it meets. In each entity there exists completeness. Thus, the ability to understand each balance is necessary. When you view patience, you are responsible for mirroring in your mental understanding patience/impatience. When you view impatience, it is necessary for your mental configuration of understanding to be impatience/patience. We use this as a simple example. Most configurations of mind have many facets, and understanding of either self polarities, or what you would call other-self polarities, can and must be understood as subtle work.

The next step is the acceptance of the other-self polarities, which mirrors the second step.

These are the first four steps of learning mental discipline. The fifth step involves observing the geographical and geometrical relationships and ratios of the mind, the other mind, the mass mind, and the infinite mind.

Our lives are full of catalyst that we see in a certain way because of the pre-incarnative choices that we make to help us learn the next lessons that we need to learn. Certain themes and patterns become apparent after a while, and instead of becoming disturbed at the less harmonious ones, it is well that we seek to balance all incoming catalyst so that we can see ourselves as living, growing, and serving others, each in our own way. When we can accept that which is our experience, then we prepare ourselves ever more fully to “become the Creator.” In 60.3, Ra described Carla’s balancing of love and wisdom according to her pre-incarnative choices:

Questioner: Can you tell me the best approach for altering, to a more acceptable condition, the distortions that the instrument is experiencing?

Ra: I am Ra. There is some small amount of work which the instrument may do concerning its pre-incarnative decisions regarding service to the Infinite Creator in this experience. However, the decision to open, without reservation, to the offering of self when service is perceived is such a fundamental choice that it is not open to significant alteration, nor would we wish to interfere with the balancing process which is taking place with this particular entity.

The wisdom and compassion being so balanced by this recapitulation of fourth density is helpful to this particular mind/body/spirit complex. It is not an entity much given to quibbling with the purity with which it carries out that which it feels it is best to do. We may say this due to the instrument’s knowledge of itself, which is clear upon this point. However, this very discussion may give rise to a slightly less fully unstopped dedication to service in any one working so that the service may be continued over a greater period of your space/time.

Meditation is the key ingredient here in being able to examine our daily catalyst and to balance it. Meditation seats in our being the lessons that we learn in balancing. In meditation we come the closest to our soul identity as is possible within incarnation. While we meditate we are communing with the Creator within, and it is in meditation that we are more likely to be given clues as to how to accelerate our process of spiritual growth. Our guides, inner teachers, and friends also have more of a chance to give us direction within the meditative state. Meditation is our contact with reality and eventually with the One Creator within. In 49.8, Ra said:

The passive meditation involving the clearing of the mind—the emptying of the mental jumble which is characteristic of mind complex activity among your peoples—is efficacious for those whose goal is to achieve an inner silence as a base from which to listen to the Creator. This is an useful and helpful tool, and is, by far, the most generally useful type of meditation as opposed to contemplation or prayer.

Today our high temperature was 26 degrees, so I was very glad that I have gotten all of my outside work for the season completed. I am now in the process of developing a program of using the increased indoor time to the benefit of my spiritual journey as well as relaxing and having some fun. For the spiritual aspect I am now reading Lee Horstman’s book on comparing the Law of One to Islamic mysticism, which is known as Sufism. This is one of a series of books that he has written regarding how the Law of One reflects the mystical aspects of the five major religions of the world: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. For the fun aspect of my indoor time I am continuing to enjoy dancing to various kinds of music which is not only fun but aids the osteoporosis in my right hip and activates the balancing function in the brain. Since this is Friday, I also vacuumed the first floor of the house.

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

January 7

Spend Yourselves Wisely

I am the spirit of the consciousness of love. I come in the name of Jesus the Christ, in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

It is an unhappy thing that your peoples find so much pleasure in vain recreations and idle pursuits. For the right use of the illusion may be seen to be that not of the path of least resistance but often the path of most resistance.

Yet it is no penalty to those who must rest from their labors. Rather, it shall be seen, in the context of larger life, that so much precious time was spent as a spendthrift spends money, not for gain but for gadgets.

Spend yourselves, my children, and do not count the cost. Insofar as your will is able to lead you, when the time comes for rest accept your limitations and lie down to be comforted in whatever distractions amuse you. Yet know that if there is energy within you and you spend it foolishly, you shall count it against yourself in the eternal now which is your birthright.

We wish you peace, yet peace which has the sword’s edge; peace that shall forever remove the virginity of innocent delight from your days and replace it with the worshipful gaze of the lover. 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.
