I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 90.18:

Questioner: There seems to have been created by this Logos (to me anyway) a large percentage of entities whose distortion was toward warfare, in that we had the Maldek and the Mars experience and now Earth. It seems that Venus was the exception to what we could almost call the rule of warfare. Is this correct? And was this envisioned and planned into the construction of the archetypical mind—possibly not with respect particularly to warfare as we have experienced it but to the extreme action to polarization in consciousness?

Ra: I am Ra. It is correct that the Logos designed Its experiment to attempt to achieve the greatest possible opportunities for polarization in third density. It is incorrect that warfare of the types specific to your experiences was planned by the Logos. This form of expression of hostility is an interesting result which is apparently concomitant with the tool-making ability. The choice of the Logos to use the life-form with the grasping thumb is the decision to which this type of warfare may be traced.”

Since our solar system had three examples of the planetary experience of warfare, with Earth being the latest one, Don asked Ra if this was planned by the Logos. Ra responded that this was not the case as it was the Logos’s plan that third-density entities would have the greatest chances of polarization in consciousness.  Ra also mentioned that the choice of the Logos to use the “life-form with the grasping thumb” was the factor that seems to have led to warfare. In 90.12, Ra gave their opinion that the Logos chose the ape to invest for third-density experience because its opposable thumb, not only to hold tools, but also to allow the concept of speech to manifest and aid in interaction with others rather than allowing telepathy to manifest and reduce that interaction:

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 it was discovered by other Logoi that the veil of forgetting actually accelerated the chance to polarize third-density consciousness, our Logos adopted it to further enhance the evolutionary process. The third-density entities that existed before the veil were aware that each of them was the Creator and that we lived in a universe of love, joy, and unity. But this sure knowledge did not motivate them to polarize in consciousness because there was no reason to better their positions. With the veil it became necessary to search diligently to find the concepts of love, light, joy and unity that are the foundation stones of this creation that live within the unconscious mind of each entity and provides the inner impetus for conscious seekers of truth to evolve in mind, body, and spirit. In 79.28, Ra verified that the veil of forgetting produced the service-to-self polarity immediately:

Questioner: Well, I was aware of that. I probably didn’t state the question correctly. It’s a very difficult question to state. I don’t know if it’s worth attempting to continue with, but what I meant was when this very first experiment with the veiling process occurred, did it result in service-to-self polarization with the first experiment?

Ra: I am Ra. The early, if we may use this term, Logoi produced service-to-self and service-to-others mind/body/spirit complexes immediately. The harvestability of these entities was not so immediate, and thus refinements of the archetypes began apace.

This afternoon I drained half the water out of the fish pond and replaced it with fresh water. Before I began draining the water I noticed that it was quite murky for some reason. I also noticed that the new UV light was producing a current of water that must have been the cause of the murky conditions. I am guessing that a raccoon somehow crawled through the netting that I have installed to prevent such entry. I couldn’t get any information from the fellow who sold me the UV light because their store is closed on Saturdays. So I decided to leave the UV light off to avoid further murky water.

I used the drained water from the pond to water the four flower beds around the fish pond, and as the pond was refilling I discovered a baby robin on the ground beside the garage. I called a friend of mine who is into wildlife rescue, and she suggested I make a little basket the size of a nest, drill holes in its inside to drain any water from rain, and line the nest with torn up paper towels. Then she suggested I hang it in a tree close to where I found it so its momma can find it and feed it until it is able to fly. Fingers crossed.

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

May 14

What Shall The Day Bring?

I come in the name of Jesus the Christ and greet you in the full consciousness of love.

What shall the day bring? This question lies upon the fearful brow of one who hesitates in the morning to gaze steadily at the day’s offerings.

We encourage each instead to rejoice in what the day brings, whatever it may be. The enjoyment of it is the perfect gift of perfect love. Seize it. Relish it. And, in the best way given, deal with it appropriately.

But know, too, that this, indeed this very moment, is the moment which is given for peace, joy, rejoicing and happiness; this moment and no other. Feel the fullness of the spirit of the living Christ within and open to the splendor of the morning.

We leave you in the bracing wind of spirit and the perfect peace of acceptance, now and always. 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.
