I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 94.10:

Questioner: From the previous session the statement was made that much is veiled to the most apparently clear observation. Would Ra expand on what was meant by that statement? I assume that this means the veiling of all of that that is outside the limits of what we call our physical perception having to do with the spectrum of light, etc., but I also intuit there is more than that veiled. Would Ra expand on that concept?

Ra: I am Ra. You are perceptive in your supposition. Indeed, we meant not any suggestions that the physical apparatus of your current illusion were limited as part of the veiling process. Your physical limits are as they are.

However, because of the unique biases of each mind/body/spirit complex, there are sometimes quite simple instances of distortion when there is no apparent cause for such distortion. Let us use the example of the virile and immature male who meets and speaks clearly with a young female whose physical form has the appropriate configuration to cause, for this male entity, the activation of the red-ray sexual arousal.

The words spoken may be upon a simple subject such as naming, information as to the occupation, and various other common interchanges of sound vibratory complex. The male entity, however, is using almost all the available consciousness it possesses in registering the desirability of the female. Such may also be true of the female.

Thusly an entire exchange of information may be meaningless because the actual catalyst is of the body. This is unconsciously controlled and is not a conscious decision. This example is simplistic.”

In this question Don is asking Ra about a statement in the previous session that Ra made that suggested that much was veiled in “apparently clear observations.” Don asked how this occurs. Ra replies that since each of us is a complex being with motives and desires that are not only unclear to others but perhaps also unclear to ourselves. Our interactions with others can be misleading to everyone concerned. When you combine this fact with how differently each of us may perceive the same catalyst due to pre-incarnative choices of lessons, it is not surprising that misunderstandings occur quite frequently between people. In 54.7, Ra gave the basic value of misunderstandings:

Questioner: Now, I have made these statements just to get to the basic question I wish to ask. It is a difficult question to ask.

We have, coming from the sub-Logos we call our sun, intelligent energy, which then forms—and we’ll take as an example a single sub-sub-Logos which is a mind/body/spirit complex. This intelligent energy is somehow modulated or distorted, so that it ends up as a mind/body/spirit complex with certain distortions of personality that it is necessary for the mind/body/spirit complex, or the mental portion of that complex, to undistort in order to conform once more precisely with the original intelligent energy.

First, I want to know if my statement on that is correct. And, secondly, I want to know why this is the way that it is; if there is any answer other than the first distortion of the Law of One for this?

Ra: I am Ra. This statement is substantially correct. If you will penetrate the nature of the First Distortion in its application of self knowing self, you may begin to distinguish the hallmark of an infinite creator: variety. Were there no potentials for misunderstanding and, therefore, understanding, there would be no experience.

Then Ra used the example of young male and female entities who meet and discover that they have a sexual attraction to each other. Since this is catalyst of the body they may talk about various topics like their names, where they are from, their jobs and so forth, and they may stay within the mind complex for all of these interactions which are actually coming from the subconscious mind. Thus their conscious interactions are meaningless. In 95.19, Ra gave used this same red-ray attraction before the veil to demonstrate the difference in producing catalyst of the body in the post veil situation:

Questioner: Thank you. In the last session you made a statement about the immature male meeting the female with respect to what occurred because of the veil: that the information exchange was quite different. Would you give an example of the information exchange prior to the veil for this same case, please?

Ra: I am Ra. Given this same case—that is, the random red-ray sexual arousal being activated in both male and female—the communication would far more likely have been to the subject of the satisfying of that red-ray, sexual impulse. When this had occurred other information such as the naming could be offered with clear perception.

It is to be noted that the catalyst which may be processed by the pre-veil experience is insignificant compared to the catalyst offered to the thoroughly bemused male and female after the veil. The confusion which this situation, simplistic though it is, offers is representative of the efficiency of the enlargement of the catalytic processes occurring after the veiling.

This morning I got the small forsythia bushes on my north and south boundaries watered. I also watered a good deal of the rest of the back yard gardens: the azaleas, the astilbe, the ferns, and the hosta in two locations. In the afternoon I used my hake (shaped like a hoe but with tines like a rake) to cultivate the two mounds in the front yard and the flowers along the parking area in the front of the house.

For the last two nights Dan D. Lion has slept with me in my bed and even on top of me like Chloe used to. Last night I put a litter box on the far corner of the bed so he could use it without having to pee in the bed. So whereas Chloe was my cuddle bug, Dan D. is now my cuddle buddy. We took three walks around the yard today, and he seemed to have more energy than he did yesterday which allowed us to cover more ground than yesterday. I also bought new tuna and salmon which Dan D. ate a little of, but I can see that he is still getting weaker and unable to jump up as well as he could last week. He needs a little help to get into my lap when I meditate.

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

The Good And Bad Wood

I come in the name of Jesus the Christ—I, the spirit of the living Christ in the world today. I greet you in the inestimable and eternal love of the Father.

When the axeman hews the tree, he treats it carefully. He sees the good wood and the bad. He sees the wood that shall make lumber and the wood that shall make kindling. He has a perspective upon this tree that he could never have had as he gazed upon it as a living being, for he has moved that living being, deadened it, and claimed it for his own use.

Only through the hands of spirit can such sacrifice be recovered, renewed and recreated. Consider well, my children, the lesson of the tree. Use what you need. For truly this is the way of your life. But give back that which your earth needs. Give back that which your peoples need, that the Holy Spirit, through each of you, may renew the face of the Earth.

We leave you in the striving amidst peace and the peace amidst all strife. We leave you in that peace the world knows not, 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.
