I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 91.20:

Questioner: The hand downward has been seen as seeking from within, not outwardly active dominance over the material world. Would Ra comment?

Ra: I am Ra. Look again, O student. Does the hand reach within? Nay. Without potentiation the conscious mind has no inwardness. That hand, O student, reaches towards that which, outside its unpotentiated influence, is locked from it.”

Beginning with this session we had just begun to query Ra concerning the facets of each of the images in the Major Arcana of the tarot. This was the third question, and Don asked Ra if the left hand of the Magician could be a representation of the conscious mind seeking within itself. Ra said that was incorrect as there could be no inward seeking until the conscious mind had been potentiated by the High Priestess as Ra suggested in 79.20:

The Matrix of Mind is that from which all comes. It is unmoving yet is the activator in potentiation of all mind activity. The Potentiator of the Mind is that great resource which may be seen as the sea into which the consciousness dips ever deeper and more thoroughly in order to create, ideate, and become more self-conscious.

Instead, Ra suggested that this hand of the magician was reaching for that which it is unable to grasp until the unconscious mind, the High Priestess, potentiates the conscious mind to reach for catalyst that the High Priestess then gives to the conscious mind. Thus the conscious mind reflects the male principle of reaching for the unconscious mind, and the unconscious mind reflects the female principle of awaiting the reaching of the conscious mind as Ra described in 92.20:

Questioner: The Matrix of the Mind is depicted seemingly as male on the card and the Potentiator as female. Could Ra state why this is and how this affects these two archetypes?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, as we have said, the Matrix of the Mind is attracted to the biological male and the Potentiator of the Mind to the biological female. Thusly in energy transfer the female is able to potentiate that which may be within the conscious mind of the male so that it may feel enspirited.

In a more general sense, that which reaches may be seen as a male principle; that which awaits the reaching may be seen as a female principle.

The richness of the male and female system of polarity is interesting, and we would not comment further but suggest consideration by the student.

We could tell that Ra was especially glad that we were querying them regarding the archetypical mind as they would adopt a more formal and more grand manner of speech using terms like “O student” and “Nay,” which means “no.” This may be due to Ra’s having developed the tarot in their third-density experience on Venus as a means of describing the nature of evolution as reflected in each of the twenty two images of the Major Arcana. In sharing this information with us they were sharing that which was closest to their hearts on the spiritual path, that which inspired them the most. Just my opinion.

Today I went to Paul’s Fruit Market and bought some Dragon’s Wing Begonias and also some regular Begonias with brown leaves and white blooms. Then I dug up the three areas on the first level, the ground level, of the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden and raked it smooth. In the first area I transplanted 12 Dragon’s Wind Begonias with pink blooms. In the second area I transplanted 12 Dragon’s Wing Begonias with red blooms. In the third area I transplanted 36 small regular Begonias. I put a little fertilizer in the bottom of each hole, and then I watered everything that I transplanted today and which I have transplanted over the last couple of weeks.

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

Peace, Be Still

I am the principle of infinite compassion which is the love of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in this love.

So many doubts assail your minds; so many self-destructive thoughts; so many stumbling blocks which each seeker puts in its own way through doubt. Let us speak to you of faith.

In all of the ways of existence there are those things which one may question. Yet, undergirding all that there is, is a mysterious splendor of that which was created by love.

The attitude of faith asks no words, brooks no sentiments, and discusses no implications. Faith is that abiding belief that a kindly Creator has a will for each to learn and to grow spiritually and to be of service to others.

Many situations seem quite devoid of that opportunity. Do not be fooled. When you can, show faith. When you can gaze upon the stormy waters and say, “Peace, be still,” within yourself, then you have not dogma or doctrine but a solid rock upon which to stand and the overreaching arms of the Father to protect you, comfort you, and hold you as you walk the steps of the seeker.

We leave you in the peace and joy of that mysterious journey, 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.
