I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 90.8-.9:

Questioner: I see. Very roughly, if you were to move a third-density entity from some other planet to this planet, roughly what percentage of all of those within the knowledge of Ra would look enough like those entities of Earth so that they would go unnoticed in a crowd?

Ra: I am Ra. Perhaps five percent.

Questioner: Then there is an extreme variation in the form of the physical vehicle in third density in the universe. I assume this is also true of fourth density. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is so. We remind you that it is a great theoretical distance between demanding that the creatures of an infinite creation be unnoticeably similar to oneself and observing those signs which may be called human which denote the third-density characteristics of self-consciousness: the grouping into pairs, societal groups, and races; and the further characteristic means of using self-consciousness to refine and search for the meaning of the milieu.”

In this section of questions Don is investigating the third-density physical appearance of entities throughout the universe. We knew from previous information from Ra that each third-density population’s body evolved from a second-density animal. On Earth our bodies have evolved from the ape, and our third density body is a refinement of that animal. So now Don discovered that only five percent of the third-density populations in the universe look like us. That suggests a very wide range of evolutionary possibilities for body complexes in the universe. In 90.12, Ra gave their opinion as to why the ape was chosen as the second-density animal to invest:

Questioner: Was there a reason for choosing the forms that have evolved upon this planet, and if so, what was it?

Ra: I am Ra. We are not entirely sure why our Logos and several neighboring Logoi of approximately the same space/time of flowering chose the bipedal, erect form of the second-density apes to invest. It has been our supposition—which we share with you as long as you are aware that this is mere opinion—that our Logos was interested in, shall we say, further intensifying the veiling process by offering to the third-density form the near complete probability for the development of speech taking complete precedence over concept communication or telepathy.

We also have the supposition that the so-called opposable thumb was looked upon as an excellent means of intensifying the veiling process so that, rather than rediscovering the powers of the mind, the third-density entity would, by the form of its physical manifestation, be drawn to the making, holding, and using of physical tools.

When Don made the comment about there being an “extreme variation in the form of the physical vehicle in third density in the universe,” Ra suggested that rather than looking at the appearance of the physical body to determine if entities from other places in the universe are similar to us on Earth, we would do better in this discrimination if we looked at their behaviors. Those qualities we would share with all others throughout the universe, such as living in pairs, combining in groups and races, and then using self-consciousness to become seekers of truth. We would do well even here on Earth to look past the physical appearance and see into the heart of each race, nation, sexual orientation, religion, philosophy and so on to be able to find those qualities of compassion, intelligence, service to others, love of family, etc. that bring us together as children of the One Infinite Creator. In 21.9, Ra gave us a general outline for how all third-density beings would partake in the third-density experience:

Questioner: Now, when the 75,000-year cycle started, the life span was approximately nine hundred years, average. What was the process and scheduling of . . . mechanism, shall I say, of reincarnation at that time, and how did the time in between incarnations into third-density physical apply to the growth of the mind/body/spirit complex?

Ra: I am Ra. This query is more complex than most. We shall begin. The incarnation pattern of the beginning third-density mind/body/spirit complex begins in darkness, for you may think, or consider, of your density as one of, as you may say, a sleep and a forgetting. This is the only plane of forgetting. It is necessary for the third-density entity to forget so that the mechanisms of confusion, or free will, may operate upon the newly individuated consciousness complex.

Thus, the beginning entity is one in all innocence oriented towards animalistic behavior using other-selves only as extensions of self for the preservation of the all-self. The entity becomes slowly aware that it has needs, shall we say, that are not animalistic; that is, that are useless for survival. These needs include: the need for companionship, the need for laughter, the need for beauty, the need to know the universe about it. These are the beginning needs.

As the incarnations begin to accumulate, further needs are discovered: the need to trade, the need to love, the need to be loved, the need to elevate animalistic behaviors to a more universal perspective.

During the first portion of third-density cycles, incarnations are automatic and occur rapidly upon the cessation of energy complex of the physical vehicle. There is small need to review or to heal the experiences of the incarnation. As, what you would call, the energy centers begin to be activated to a higher extent, more of the content of experience during incarnation deals with the lessons of love.

Thus the time, as you may understand it, between incarnations is lengthened to give appropriate attention to the review and the healing of experiences of the previous incarnation. At some point in third density, the green-ray energy center becomes activated, and at that point incarnation ceases to be automatic.

This morning I bought three different kinds of annual flowers at Thieneman’s Nursery to plant along the parking area in front of the house. Each one is supposed to be deer resistant. They are Blue Salvia, Angelonia, and Dianthus. They are tall with long stalks and very pretty colored flowers on top. So I got them planted this afternoon and lacked only half a dozen to complete the planting of this area. I will pick those up tomorrow along with more flowers for the two mounds in the front yard.

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

May 7

Rise And Be Free

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

Within the mind does each pilgrim bow before the spirit and fall to the knees upon the dusty floor of human suffering.

Yet to the spirit all things are light and love and the holy flame of the principle of Jesus the Christ reaches out to sin and suffering with hand and arm, saying, “Arise! Come and do the work of the spirit, not the work of the bondservant.”

My children, rise and be free, for that spirit which is love utterly commits and utterly frees the answering spirit of the pilgrim. Answer and be made whole, that the light may shine in and through you and that you may, by your light, lift others from the threshing floor of error.

We leave you in the transfiguring peace of the love of 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, 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.
