I would like to remind everyone that we are holding our Meditation for World Peace again tomorrow morning at 11 am Eastern Time. We will meditate for ten minutes and send love, light, and healing energies to the people of Ukraine and Russia.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.3:

Questioner: Thank you. The foundation of our present illusion we have stated previously to be the concept of polarity. I would ask that, since we have defined the two polarities as service to others and service to self, is there a more complete or eloquent or enlightening definition? Or any more information that we don’t have at this time on the two ends of the poles that would give us a better insight into the nature of polarity itself?

Ra: I am Ra. It is unlikely that there is a more pithy or eloquent description of the polarities of third density than “service to others” and “service to self” due to the nature of the mind/body/spirit complex’s distortions towards perceiving concepts relating to philosophy in terms of ethics or activity. However, we might consider the polarities using slightly variant terms. In this way a possible enrichment of insight might be achieved for some.

One might consider the polarities with the literal nature enjoyed by the physical polarity of the magnet. The negative and positive, with their electrical characteristics, may be seen to be just as in the physical sense.

It is to be noted in this context that it is quite impossible to judge the polarity of an act or an entity, just as it is impossible to judge the relative goodness of the negative and positive poles of the magnet.

Another method of viewing polarities might involve the concept of radiation/absorption. That which is positive is radiant; that which is negative is absorbent.”

During the Ra contact Don often would ask questions in a different way in areas that he considered to be of basic importance in grasping the Law of One. By doing so he was trying to get more of Ra’s perspective in these areas to enhance our understanding of them. In 21.8, Don made this point clear:

Questioner: I don’t mean to be covering ground that we’ve already covered, but there’re some points that we have trouble with fully understanding, and sometimes I have to ask the question a different way to fully understand it. Thank you.

In this question he is asking for more information about the positive and negative paths. Ra’s first response is to say that it was unlikely that we could get a better answer than service-to-others and service-to-self because of humans placing so much importance on describing philosophical principles in terms of ethics and or morality. In 78.14, Ra gave another example of what might be called polarity in the previous octave of experience:

Questioner: But, in doing this, there was at the center of the galaxy the lack of knowledge, or the lack of concept of possibility of extending the First Distortion so as to allow for what we have experienced as polarity. Was there any concept of polarity carried through from the previous octave in the sense of service-to-others or service-to-self polarity?

Ra: I am Ra. There was polarity in the sense of the mover and the moved. There was no polarity in the sense of service to self and service to others.

Then Ra suggested the two paths could also be likened to the magnet with a positive pole and a negative pole. People could be seen in the same way as the magnet with positive and negative actions. Ra also used this analogy as a means of emphasizing that neither the polarity of the magnet nor most actions of people could be judged relatively good or bad. In 95.24, Ra gave a good example of this type of a situation:

Questioner: From that statement I interpret the following meaning: That if the Experience of the Mind has sufficiently chosen the right-hand path—as total purity is approached in choosing of the right-hand path—then total imperviousness from the effect of the left-hand catalyst is also approached. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is exquisitely perceptive. The seeker which has purely chosen the service-to-others path shall certainly not have a variant apparent incarnational experience. There is no outward shelter in your illusion from the gusts, flurries, and blizzards of quick and cruel catalyst.

However, to the pure, all that is encountered speaks of the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. The cruelest blow is seen with an ambiance of challenges offered and opportunities to come. Thusly, the great pitch of light is held high above such an one so that all interpretation may be seen to be protected by light.

Ra concludes their answer by using the concepts of radiance and absorption to enhance the description of the two paths. The positive path could be said to be radiant in regards to its shining of light to others and the negative path could be said to be absorbent of the light of others. In 80.6-.7, Ra gave a very practical example of both radiance and absorption of light in the positive and negative sense respectively:

Questioner: What would our fifth-density visitor hope to gain for himself if he were to be successful in terminating this contact?

Ra: I am Ra. As we have previously stated, the entity hopes to gain a portion of that light; that is, the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument. Barring this, the entity intends to put out the light.

Questioner: I understand this up to a point—that point is if the entity were successful in either of these attempts, of what value would this be to him? Would it increase his ability? Would it increase his polarity? By what mechanism would it do whatever it does?

Ra: I am Ra. Having attempted for some of your space/time with no long-lasting result to do these things, the entity may be asking this question of itself.

The gain for triumph is an increase in negative polarity to the entity in that it has removed a source of radiance and, thereby, offered to this space/time the opportunity of darkness where there once was light. In the event that it succeeded in enslaving the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument it would have enslaved a fairly powerful entity, thus adding to its power.

And in 80.17, Ra used the Significator of the Spirit, which is the Sun, as an example of how radiance and absorption might be manifested:

Questioner: How would you describe the Significator of the Spirit?

Ra: I am Ra. In answer to the previous query we set about doing just this. The Significator of the Spirit is that living entity which either radiates or absorbs the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator: radiates it to others or absorbs it for the self.

This morning the forecast was for severe thunderstorms by mid-morning. But when the afternoon came and there were no storms and not enough rain to even measure, I decided that I would go ahead and continue watering the gardens. My first step was to pump a quarter of the water out of the fish pond and use it to water the six gardens that surround it. After I cleaned the filters for the pump I noticed that the wind that blew through this morning had knocked over many of the 4 and 5-ft. Giant Hibiscus, so I used plastic ties to attach them to 4-ft. garden stakes.

After the fish pond had been refilled with fresh water I attached the watering wand to the garden hose and went from the front parking area to the far back corner of the yard and watered all the plants that looked like they needed water, which was most of them. We have had four days in a row of temperatures in the upper 90s and no rain. The forecast for next week looks the same, so I see a good deal more watering in my future.

Dan D. Lion is still eating well, and I am much heartened by that. However, he is once again not peeing, so that is a source of concern. The vet said that this will be a process of good days and bad days intermingling for the rest of his life for whatever length it may be in days or weeks.

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

June 17

Offer The Self In Sacrifice

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

Jesus the Christ taught the disciples to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” The Creator has chosen that all things may be fed, upon all levels, by the breaking, sacrificing and blessing of substance.

You know already of physical food and you know of the food that emotion requires, food that is given from one soul to another of anger or of peace. Yet this act of giving of emotional and spiritual food is often not graced with a prayerful attitude or the sacrificial breaking of the self in order to open up those few words of humanity to the infinite riches of the words and feelings of the spirit of love.

In pride the manna of the love of God cannot be shared. Therefore, may each seeking soul offer itself in sacrifice, opening the spirit, breaking the loaves and fishes and blessing them, that there may be abundance of love and peace and all that may be necessary for the beloved creations of the Father.

May you feel that peace and that joy this day 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.
