I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.8:

Questioner: There seems to be no large hint of polarity in this drawing except for the possible coloration of the many cups in the wheel. Part of them are colored black, and part of the cup is white. Would this indicate that each experience has within it a possible negative or positive use of that experience that is randomly generated by this seeming wheel of fortune?

Ra: I am Ra. Your supposition is thoughtful. However, it is based upon an addition to the concept complex which is astrological in origin. Therefore, we request that you retain the concept of polarity, but release the cups from their strictured form. The element you deal with is not in motion in its original form, but is, indeed, the abiding sun which, from the spirit, shines in protection over all catalyst available from the beginning of complexity to the discerning mind/body/spirit complex.

Indeed you may, rather, find polarity expressed, firstly, by the many opportunities offered in the material illusion which is imaged by the not-white and not-dark square upon which the entity of the image is seated; secondly, upon the position of that seated entity. It does not meet opportunity straight on but glances off to one side or another.

In the image you will note a suggestion that the offering of the illusion will often seem to suggest the opportunities lying upon the left-hand path or, as you might refer to it more simply, the service-to-self path. This is a portion of the nature of the Catalyst of the Mind.”

Now Don begins the questioning on Card #3, the Catalyst of the Mind. He asks Ra if the cups in the wheel of fortune are indications that each experience has the potential for positive or negative interpretation. Ra responded by saying that the wheel of fortune is astrological in origin, and we could remove it from the card. Apparently, the original symbol was the “abiding sun” which “shined in protection from the spirit” over all catalyst of the seeker of truth. This suggests that no seeker would be expected to bear more difficulty than it could process successfully as a conscious being. In 22.6, Ra said that the shortened life span from 900 years at the beginning of the third density was another means of protecting the seeker from experiencing too much catalyst:

Questioner: Would this shortened life span help the entity in any way in that he would have more times in between incarnations to review his mistakes, or would this shortened life span hinder him?

Ra: I am Ra. Both are correct. The shortening of the life span is a distortion of the Law of One which suggests that an entity not receive more experience in more intensity than it may bear. This is only in effect upon an individual level and does not hold sway over planetary or social complexes.

Thus the shortened life span is due to the necessity for removing an entity from the intensity of experience which ensues when wisdom and love are, having been rejected, reflected back into the consciousness of the Creator without being accepted as part of the self, this then causing the entity to have the need for healing and for much evaluation of the incarnation.

The incorrectness lies in the truth that, given appropriate circumstances, a much longer incarnation in your space/time continuum is very helpful for continuing this intensive work until conclusions have been reached through the catalytic process.

Ra continues by saying that polarity may be found in this image to be represented by the black and while square that the entity sits upon. The entity seated on the square is seated sideways and faces left, which Ra said reveals that catalyst in the third density often seems negative. This makes sense since the veil of forgetting hides all of the true nature of creation as one thing, made by Love, and formed of light. Instead of seeing this as our ultimate reality, we look upon a seemingly fragmented illusion where people are separate from each other and pose potential threats to us as they compete with us for money, position, power, etc. In 85.18-.19, Ra gave a detailed description of how the veil of forgetting hid the true nature of the creation from third density:

Questioner: After the veiling process certain veiled functions or activities must have been paramount in creating evolution in desired polarized directions. I was just wondering which of these had the greatest effect on polarization?

Ra: I am Ra. The most effectual veiling was that of the mind.

Questioner: I would like to carry that on to find out what specific functions of the mind were most effectual, and the three or four most effective changes brought about to create the polarization.

Ra: I am Ra. This is an interesting query. The primary veiling was of such significance that it may be seen to be analogous to the mantling of the earth over all the jewels within the earth’s crust; whereas previously all facets of the Creator were consciously known. After the veiling, almost no facets of the Creator were known to the mind. Almost all was buried beneath the veil.

If one were to attempt to list those functions of mind most significant in that they might be of aid in polarization, one would need to begin with the faculty of visioning, envisioning, or far-seeing. Without the veil the mind was not caught in your illusory time. With the veil, space/time is the only obvious possibility for experience.

Also upon the list of significant veiled functions of the mind would be that of dreaming. The so-called dreaming contains a great deal which, if made available to the conscious mind and used, shall aid it in polarization to a great extent.

The third function of the mind which is significant and which has been veiled is that of the knowing of the body. The knowledge of and control over the body, having been lost to a great extent in the veiling process, is thusly lost from the experience of the seeker. Its knowledge before the veiling is of small use. Its knowledge after the veiling, and in the face of what is now a dense illusion of separation of body complex from mind complex, is quite significant.

Perhaps the most important and significant function that occurred due to the veiling of the mind from itself is not in itself a function of mind but rather is a product of the potential created by this veiling. This is the faculty of will or pure desire.

Today was a Sabbath Day of Rest, but since our dry spell continues—happily with cooler temperatures yesterday and today—I spent a good deal of time this morning watering flowers in the front, side, and back yards. I didn’t want to lose the watering momentum as the high temperatures will be returning tomorrow and last at least through next Saturday. I made my usual errand run after lunch with my first stop at Feeder’s Supply where I bought food for the cats and a 40 lb. bag of bird seed for the birds and squirrels. Then I stopped at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy food for myself. My last stop was at Walgreen’s where I bought some ice cream and some paper goods.

This morning I was very happy to see that Dan D. Lion had finally peed twice last night, the first time in the last few days. When he doesn’t pee, the fluids collect in his body and cause him discomfort. His appetite remains good, and that is a blessing as his body weight has fallen to seven pounds from his normal twelve pounds. I took him outside for a few walks again today, as he has always been an inside/outside cat. I don’t let him outside by himself anymore since his end stage renal failure situation could result in his passing away suddenly in unknown territory.

The Sturdy Flame Of Your Consciousness

Greetings in the love of that consciousness which is Christ. I am known to you as the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We thank you for this time, acknowledging that we are blessed by extending that holiness to you, for could you but pierce the many distractions and confusions of your daily life, you would see clearly the blessedness of your bright incarnations, the sturdy flame of your consciousness.

If we could inform you regarding the love which you express in your being with every breath, you could see yourself and others without distortion of any kind; without confusion; without the golden-hued glasses of memory. Turn, then, to the present moment, my child, for it is, as yet, unspoiled by distortion and confusion and contains the consciousness of Christ, entire and perfect.

Peace be with you, 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.
