I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 90.10:

Questioner: Well, within Ra’s knowledge of third-density physical forms, what percentage would be similar enough to this planet’s physical form that we would assume the entity to be human even though they were a bit different? This would have to be very rough because of my definition being very rough.

Ra: I am Ra. This percentage is still small, perhaps thirteen to fifteen percent due to the capabilities of various second-density life forms to carry out each necessary function for third-density work. Thusly to be observed would be behavior indicating self-consciousness and purposeful interaction with a sentient ambiance about the entity, rather than those characteristics which familiarly connote to your peoples the humanity of your third-density form.”

Two questions earlier Ra told us that, taking the entire universe into account, only five percent of the third-density entities would look like we look on planet Earth. So in this question Don asked Ra how many third-density entities throughout the universe would look enough like us to be considered human even though there were some differences. Again, the percent was quite small, with only 13-15 percent who would look mostly human. In 90.9, Ra commented on our seeming to value other third-density entities looking like us:

 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.

I believe what Ra is saying in this quote is that our valuing, or demanding, that other third-density entities look like we look is rather short-sighted when it is realized that we are living in an infinite creation. Ra suggested that in 54.7:

If you will penetrate the nature of the First Distortion in its application of self knowing self, you may begin to distinguish the hallmark of an infinite creator: variety.

Then as an alternative to this short-sighted point of view, Ra said that we would do better to look for the signs of third-density: self-consciousness, grouping into pairs, societal groups and races, and the shared drive to understand the meaning of life. These are qualities that we share with all third-density entities, no matter what they might look like. We all have the same basic needs as Ra alluded to in 21.9:

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.

Today was another Sabbath Day of Rest, and it was certainly a beautiful day with Mother Earth’s trees, grasses, shrubs, and flowers vibrant with life and beauty everywhere one might look. After lunch I took my regular errand run, but I added Thieneman’s Nursery to my list where I picked up 36 Sun Patiens for the Flower Fall in the front yard and 30 Lantana for the Wuthering heights Mound also in the front yard. Then I stopped by Feeder’s Supply where I bought food for the kitty cats. My last stop was Paul’s Fruit Market to pick up some food for myself. When I got home I answered some emails from a couple of good friends that I have regular podcasts with, and I also practiced a talk that I will give in a couple of weeks on a podcast with a new friend in France.

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

May 8

The Garden Of The Spirit

I am of the principle of the full consciousness of love.

I am the garden of your heart. I am the fountain of joy. I dwell in the midst of experience and no creature is far from me at any time.

The difficulties of experience may seem like many waters separating the soul from light, separating the thirsty one from wholesome drink. And yet the water of troubles is shallow. And with the feet under one, the soul may stand up into good air and see the fountain of life.

Know that if you are in trouble of any kind today, it is a shallow and unstable trouble, a mere shadow waiting only for the heart to pound with courage and faith, that the feet may be gathered under one and the soul’s body be thrust upright.

For truly it is said that man has never left the Garden of the spirit in any but the most shallow sense. A little round of salvation may seem large. Yet because it is a perfect circle you have never been without it.

We leave you in peace, 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.
