I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 75.15:
“Questioner: The chink then, as I understand it, was originally created by the decision of Jesus to take the path of martyrdom? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is, in relation to this instrument, quite correct. It is aware of certain over-balances towards love, even to martyrdom but has not yet, to any significant degree, balanced these distortions. We do not imply that this course of unbridled compassion has any fault but affirm its perfection. It is an example of love which has served as beacon to many.
For those who seek further, the consequences of martyrdom must be considered, for in martyrdom lies the end of the opportunity, in the density of the martyr, to offer love and light. Each entity must seek its deepest path.”
In the fall of 1981, Carla was singing with the Louisville Bach Society, and they were performing The Mass in B Minor, by Johann Sebastian Bach. Twice during that performance while she was not singing she felt dizzy and disoriented and felt that she was under psychic attack. In this question Don is asking if the reason Carla was under attack was created by the decision of Jesus to take the path of martyrdom that is mentioned in the Mass. Ra said the Carla had certain “over-balances toward love, even to martyrdom” and had not yet balanced these distortions. Ra suggested that it is up to each person who wishes to serve others to determine what is appropriate to give. If the life is given as a martyr’s choice, then the martyr has ended its opportunities for further service in the life just ended. Ra seemed to be implying that remaining alive to serve longer in the incarnation might be more favorable to one who desires to serve so whole-heartedly. In 96.2, Ra gave an example of Carla’s great desire always to be of service to others:
This entity has an habitual attitude which is singular; that is, when there is some necessity for action the entity is accustomed to analyzing the catalyst in terms of service and determining a course.
In 84.4, Carla had been thinking about what Ra said and decided to ask Ra a question about the concept of the martyr in general:
Questioner: The instrument asked the following question: “Ra has implied that the instrument is on a path of martyrdom, but since all die are we not all martyr to something? When, if ever, does martyrdom partake of wisdom?”
Ra: I am Ra. This is a thoughtful query. Let us use as exemplar the one known as Jehoshua. This entity incarnated with the plan of martyrdom. There is no wisdom in this plan, but rather understanding and compassion extended to its fullest perfection.
The one known as Jehoshua would have been less-than-fully understanding of its course had it chosen to follow its will at any space/time during its teachings. Several times, as you call this measure, this entity had the possibility of moving towards the martyr’s place which was, for that martyr, Jerusalem. Yet in meditation this entity stated, time and again, “It is not yet the hour.”
The entity could also have, when the hour came, walked another path. Its incarnation would then have been prolonged but the path for which it incarnated somewhat confused. Thusly, one may observe the greatest amount of understanding, of which this entity was indeed capable, taking place as the entity in meditation felt, and knew, that the hour had come for that to be fulfilled which was its incarnation.
It is indeed so that all mind/body/spirit complexes shall die to the third-density illusion; that is, that each yellow-ray physical-complex body shall cease to be viable. It is a misnomer to, for this reason alone, call each mind/body/spirit complex a martyr, for this term is reserved for those who lay down their lives for the service they may provide to others.
We may encourage meditation upon the functions of the will.
Today I ran some errands and mailed a package of chocolate chip cookies to a dear friend of Carla’s and mine who is in a care home in southern Indiana because she loves soft cookies with chocolate in them. Then I took a trip to my local city clerk’s office to get the sticker for my car, but the stickers were on backorder. My last stop was at Kohl’s to see if I could find some long-sleeved cotton shirts but had no luck as pure cotton shirts seem to be somewhat scarce.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
Behind Every Thought
I am the spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ in the vibration of the consciousness of love which is balanced fullness to this entity. We greet each in the full measure of love which is the Father’s birthright to His children and the nature of the universe.
In measured steps did the Creator move upon the waters of your consciousness to create a consciousness of peace, an awareness of light, and a sensibility to detect and discern the creatures and ministers of light. Behind every thought and every concept waiting behind the closed door of emotion, there waits the spirit of a lively and all-consuming love, a spirit which engenders peace and joy. In no way can we sell at reduced rates the precious gift which has no price but must exact from each recipient a small awareness in welcoming.
The emotions of darkness are like a cloud around the spirit of those who cannot find enough faith to ask that love’s consciousness be a gift in the darkness. Yet we pray and wait for the opportunity to shine like a beacon upon the inward thoughts of those who do seek peace. Though there is great mystery to the consciousness of love, yet the mystery lies not in the mechanics of connection with it.
My peace I leave with you, now and always. Amen.
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.
