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 94.8-.9:

Questioner: Thank you. I really didn’t mean to go over previous material. I should have phrased my question more carefully so that . . . that is what I expected. I was trying to get confirmation of the fact that I suspected that. I will be more careful in questioning from now on.

From the instrument we have the question: “While vacationing I uncovered a lot about myself not consciously known before. It seems to me that I coast on the spiritual gifts given at birth and never have spent any time getting to know my human self which seems to be a child, immature and irrational. Is this so?”

Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct.

Questioner: Then she says: “If this is so, this seems to be part of the riddle about the manner of beingness that Ra spoke of. I fear if I do not work successfully on my human distortions I shall be responsible for losing the contact. Yet also Ra suggests the over-dedication to any outcome is unwise. Could Ra comment on these thoughts?”

Ra: I am Ra. We comment in general, first upon the query about the contact which indicates, once again, that the instrument views the mind/body/spirit complex with jaundiced eye.

Each mind/body/spirit complex that is seeking shall almost certainly have the immature and irrational behaviors. It is also the case that this entity—as well as almost all seekers—has done substantial work within the framework of the incarnative experience and has, indeed, developed maturity and rationality. That this instrument should fail to see that which has been accomplished and see only that which remains to be accomplished may well be noted. Indeed, any seeker discovering in itself this complex of mental and mental/emotional distortions shall ponder the possible non-efficacy of judgment.

As we approach the second portion of the query we view the possibility of infringement upon free will. However, we believe we may make reply within the boundaries of the Law of Confusion.

This particular instrument was not trained, nor did it study, nor worked it at any discipline in order to contact Ra. We were able, as we have said many times, to contact this group using this instrument because of the purity of this instrument’s dedication to the service of the One Infinite Creator, and also because of the great amount of harmony and acceptance enjoyed each by each within the group; this situation making it possible for the support group to function without significant distortion.

We are humble messengers. How can any thought be taken by an instrument as to the will of the Creator?

We thank this group that we may speak through it, but the future is mazed. We cannot know whether our geste may, after one final working, be complete.

Can the instrument, then, think for a moment that it shall cease in the service of the One Infinite Creator? We ask the instrument to ponder these queries and observations.”

In 92.35, Ra responded to Don’s query concerning the condition of the instrument by mentioning that there was a slight loss of vital energies. This loss of vital energies was due to Carla’s use of her will to call upon these energies in order to have a session with Ra. Then Ra gave Carla a riddle: “There is the need for the instrument to choose the manner of its beingness. It has the distortion, as we have noted, towards the martyrdom. This can be evaluated and choices made only by the entity.” In the month and a half between Session #92 and #94 Carla and I went on vacation to the beach at Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. While there she felt that she had discovered a tendency for her to coast on her spiritual gifts and be childish and immature as an adult. When Ra said that was partially correct, then Carla asked what she could do to correct her human failings without being dedicated to an outcome. She felt that she might be responsible for losing the Ra contact if she kept calling upon her vital energies to do Ra sessions. In 84.4, Carla asked Ra to explain more about how her distortions towards martyrdom was best utilized on her spiritual journey:

Questioner: The instrument asked the following question: “Ra has implied that the instrument is on a path of martyrdom, but since all die are we not all martyr to something? When, if ever, does martyrdom partake of wisdom?”

Ra: I am Ra. This is a thoughtful query. Let us use as exemplar the one known as Jehoshua. This entity incarnated with the plan of martyrdom. There is no wisdom in this plan, but rather understanding and compassion extended to its fullest perfection.

The one known as Jehoshua would have been less-than-fully understanding of its course had it chosen to follow its will at any space/time during its teachings. Several times, as you call this measure, this entity had the possibility of moving towards the martyr’s place which was, for that martyr, Jerusalem. Yet in meditation this entity stated, time and again, “It is not yet the hour.”

The entity could also have, when the hour came, walked another path. Its incarnation would then have been prolonged but the path for which it incarnated somewhat confused. Thusly, one may observe the greatest amount of understanding, of which this entity was indeed capable, taking place as the entity in meditation felt, and knew, that the hour had come for that to be fulfilled which was its incarnation.

It is indeed so that all mind/body/spirit complexes shall die to the third-density illusion; that is, that each yellow-ray physical-complex body shall cease to be viable. It is a misnomer to, for this reason alone, call each mind/body/spirit complex a martyr, for this term is reserved for those who lay down their lives for the service they may provide to others.

We may encourage meditation upon the functions of the will.

Then Ra kind of scolded Carla for judging herself harshly as all seekers have weaknesses and strengths. Ra said that it was significant that she had only focused on her failures and not also upon her strengths of maturity and rationality. Ra completed the answer by suggesting that judgment was not helpful to any spiritual seeker. That is hard advice to take for a serious spiritual seeker because each of us wants to do our best to seek the Creator, to serve the Creator in all, and to love all with a whole heart. But it is a sign of spiritual maturity for seekers to refuse to judge the self, or other selves, and simply see everyone as the Creator knowing Itself with the desire to know the self/Self more completely. Eventually Carla was able to see herself as worthy of her own love without the need to judge herself for any seeming faults. In 5.2, Ra gave the basic information that removes judgment from the seeker’s path:

To begin to master the concept of mental discipline it is necessary to examine the self. The polarity of your dimension must be internalized. Where you find patience within your mind you must consciously find the corresponding impatience and vice versa. Each thought that a being has, has in its turn an antithesis. The disciplines of the mind involve, first of all, identifying both those things of which you approve and those things of which you disapprove within yourself, and then balancing each and every positive and negative charge with its equal. The mind contains all things. Therefore, you must discover this completeness within yourself.

The second mental discipline is acceptance of the completeness within your consciousness. It is not for a being of polarity in the physical consciousness to pick and choose among attributes, thus building the roles that cause blockages and confusions in the already-distorted mind complex. Each acceptance smooths part of the many distortions that the faculty you call judgment engenders.

Ra also described the basic qualities that Carla and our group possessed that allowed Ra to contact our group as the “purity of this instrument’s dedication to the service of the One Infinite Creator, and also because of the great amount of harmony and acceptance enjoyed each by each within the group.” In 100.15, Ra emphasized the importance of harmony in our group:

Questioner: I will save that for next session, and I will ask if there is anything we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. All is well. The appurtenances are most conscientiously placed. We thank this diligent group. There is much greater distortion towards harmony at this asking, and we join you in praise and thanksgiving. This is always the greatest boon to improvement of the contact, for it is the harmony of the group which supports this contact.

I am Ra. I leave you in the love and the light of the One. Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the One Infinite Creator. Adonai.

This morning I took Dan D. Lion for our usual walk around the yard, and for the first walk he did his usual movements around various portions of the yard. On our second walk this morning he was much more sedentary and moved around very little. I didn’t take this as a good sign for Dan D., but it did give me a chance to get some watering done in the front yard as we are once again hot and dry. On our first walk in the afternoon Dan D. once again remained in two different positions which gave me a chance to water various plantings in the back yard. I also noticed a few times during the day that Dan D. is less stable walking and has pretty well lost his ability to jump up although he can still jump down. He also continues not to eat even after I gave him an appetite stimulant. However, he is drinking plenty of water and is peeing.

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

July 1

The Liquor Of Righteousness

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

Know ye that the spirit is everywhere to be found: in every raindrop, in every birdsong, in every mote of dust under your feet, and in every speck of sky overhead. There is that within you which drinks in this excellent liquor of righteousness and much light passes between the universe outside of you and the universe within.

When the seeker faces the universe as a part of the universe and moves so as to treasure dust and sky, bird and rose, the spirit is encouraged and strengthened and the bond between humankind and nature grows more into the unity that it should enjoy.

We encourage the finding of joy and laughter in the natural world about, for it is full of the Creator’s spirit.

We leave you in peace, 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.
