I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 98.16:

Questioner: That is perfectly fine with us. That noise occurs at the forty-five minute time since the tape is forty-five minutes on a side.

I would just ask as a final question then: If the new table that Jim has built for the appurtenances is satisfactory to hold them since it will give us more room to walk around the bed, and if it is better to leave it in its natural condition as it is, or to coat it with linseed oil or varnish or paint?

Ra: I am Ra. We view this appurtenance. It sings with joy. The pine vibrates in praise. Much investment of this working in wood has been done. It is acceptable. We may suggest it be left either as it is or rubbed with the oil which also is easily magnetized and holds the proffered vibration to a profound extent.”

Don’s First comment here regards Ra’s remark in the previous question that they heard the tape reorder click off after the first side had been recorded. Ra mentioned that that sound came at about the time that it was clear to Ra that the congestion in Carla’s throat would make it necessary to end the contact shortly after this sound as they said in 97.15:

Secondly, as we noted the above, the sound vibration made by one of your sound vibration recording devices was audible to us. If this group desires it may choose to have sessions which are brought to an ending soon after this sound vibration occurs. This decision would ensure the minimal distortions within the instrument towards the discomfort/comfort within the throat until the effects of the magical working of your fifth-density companion have been removed.

Don then asked Ra if the table that I had made to replace the little stand that held the appurtenances was acceptable to replace that little stand. The bedroom that we used for the Ra contact was small, and the bed on which Carla rested during the Ra contact was large enough that it left only about 16 or so inches on each end for Don and me to walk around the bed as we performed the walking of the Circle of One ritual to begin each Ra session. The table that I built to give us more room did so by being built with a base that slid totally under the bed and was connected on one end of the base by a vertical support that connected to the top platform, which held the appurtenances. This top platform was a reflection of the base and extended over the bed in order to provide more room to walk around the bed during the performance of the ritual. The table actually looked alike a long bracket [ . In 2.6, Ra described the appurtenances that the table held:

Place at the entity’s head a virgin chalice of water.

To the center, the book most closely aligned with the instrument’s mental distortions which are allied most closely with the Law of One, that being the Bible that she touches most frequently.

To the other side of the Bible, a small amount of cense, or incense, in a virgin censer.

To the rear of the book symbolizing One, opened to the Gospel of John, Chapter One, a white candle.

I wasn’t a particularly good carpenter or furniture builder, but apparently my desire to put love into this table was successful. I took Ra’s suggestion and rubbed the table with a kind of linseed oil.

This morning I worked on expanding the Introduction to Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work. I also worked on editing the email that we send out to anyone who expresses an interest in attending one of our public channeling meditations which we hope to begin again in October. This afternoon I got back to working on the Introduction for 103 as there is still a forecast for heavy rain today and tomorrow. We have gotten a total of 2 inches on Monday and Tuesday, so my gardens are finally well watered.

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

July 27

Ground Your Joy

I am the spirit of the perfect consciousness of love and I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ, the emissary of gladness and the emissary of travail.

We ask you at this moment to pause and refrain from considering the bountiful dualistic aspects of your journey; of your day; of your thoughts, and of your self. Flowers are giving their beauty to the air and to the trees, flowers unseen by minds intent on the business of the world. The sky dances above you, tossed to and fro by the winds of summer. And in the changes of the weather birdsong ceases and the butterflies find their protection. Second density is for you a rest, a refreshment and a healing.

Imagine always that your feet are planted in the earth, that your soul may grow to heaven. And keep not your attention on worldly matters but take some time to gaze at the mute prayers and silent orisons of the world of the Creator.

Beauty is enormously important food. Eat of it, for it is all around you. And so find beauty also; the flower behind the disruption; the bobbing leaves of a tree beneath the changing situation.

Let not your joy be shallow but grounded as passionately as you ground your sorrow and you will find that joy and sorrow have much in common. Allow them both their beauty but seek always the food of the Creator’s positive beauty to comfort, refresh and bless the living soul.

In silence, praise and quietude we leave you, 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.
