I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.9:

Questioner: The feet of the entity seem to be on an unstable platform that is dark to the rear and light to the front. I am guessing that possibly this indicates that the entity standing on this could sway in either direction, toward the left or the right-hand path. Is this in any way correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is most perceptive.” 

In Card Number Three, the Catalyst of the Mind, the entity in the picture is sitting on a square, facing left, and her feet are resting inside what looks like a quarter moon. This is the “unstable platform” that Don asks Ra about. He notes that the platform is dark in its rear portion and light in its front, so he asks Ra if this coloration and shape of the platform might mean that the seeker of truth could sway either to the light or to the dark, the right-hand path of service to others or the left-hand path of service to self. Ra simply says that Don is “most perceptive”. So this means that no matter what the catalyst that we may face in our daily lives we have the opportunity to look at it in either a positive sense or in a negative sense.  Just because catalyst at first glance seems to be negative doesn’t’ mean that we have to look at it as such. We can engage the love in our hearts at any time and magically transform any catalyst for a positive use as Ra referred to in 80.15:

Even the most unhappy of experiences, shall we say, which seem to occur in the Catalyst of the adept, seen from the viewpoint of the spirit, may, with the discrimination possible in shadow, be worked with until light equaling the light of brightest noon descends upon the adept and positive or service-to-others illumination has occurred. 

And in 95.24, Ra gives another example of how we may do this on our spiritual journey:

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.

The hot, dry weather returned today, and this meant that I would need to continue watering various of the flower gardens. This morning I used my watering wand and garden hose to water the flowers along the parking area in front of the house, the Cone Flowers on the Ruins Mound, and the Giant Sunflowers and Hollyhocks to the left of the fish pond. In the afternoon I watered the Azaleas in the cross area, the Astilbe, and the Sun Patiens in the Sun Mandala behind the garage.

Dan D. Lion peed again early this morning, and he purred for about ten minutes as I began my first meditation of the day. His appetite is still quite good, and I have the sense that he is happy to be here and always glad when we take one of our walks outside during the day. However, it looks like his sister, Chloe, is getting jealous of all the attention that I am giving Dan D., so I will need to be sure to give her more attention to keep her happy.

Faith And Forgiveness

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

Faith. Forgiveness. These two words move together in rhythm, creating a more beautiful dance of your life experience. It takes a foolish and unconditional faith to forgive; to forgive the self and to forgive others. But those things which are not forgiven are as burdens carried which may be laid down, stopping all consequences, releasing all personal ties to the difficulties of your life experience.

As you forgive in faith, so you act as unconditional love would have you act. Yet, do not do this too early. But rather, be sure that you have created in yourself a new heart and a new spirit, a new knowledge of faith, that the faith and forgiveness may not come from your will, but through you from the Father.

For only in the Father’s infinite mercy may He forgive iniquity. And you are the channel of that forgiveness, as is everyone who has consciousness and emotion, potentially.

Speak well in the world. Yet always, within, dwell in an humble and holy spirit of unconditional love, having the faith to forgive and forgive and forgive again. For those who have forgiven have no further connection with the spiritual difficulties produced by the difficult situations.

Self forgiven and other-self forgiven, you may move through your day in a dance of joy, doing all that you do for the love of the Father, finding no chore or task too simple to be blessed. Free yourself, my friends, by faith and forgiveness, into the peace of Jesus the Christ.

In this peace and unconditional love we leave you, now and forever. 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.
