I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 100.9:

Questioner: It would also seem to me that, since Ra stated in the last session the limit of the viewpoint is the source of all distortions, that the very nature of the service-to-self distortions that create the left-hand path are a function of the veil [and] therefore are dependent, you might say, to some degree, on at least a partial continued veiling. Does this make any sense?

Ra: I am Ra. There is the thread of logic in what you suppose.

The polarities are both dependent upon a limited viewpoint. However, the negative polarity depends more heavily upon the illusory separation betwixt the self and all other mind/body/spirit complexes. The positive polarity attempts to see through the illusion to the Creator in each mind/body/spirit complex, but for the greater part is concerned with behaviors and thoughts directed towards other-selves in order to be of service. This attitude in itself is full of the stuff of your third-density illusion.”

In this question Don quotes one of Ra’s pithy truths that it is “the limit of one’s viewpoint that is the source of all distortions,” and he asked Ra if this would especially be true for negative entities which have cut themselves off from all other selves in order to manipulate them to serve the self. He also asked if the veil continues to be a part of the negative path.  Ra agreed with Don’s basic assumption but suggested that the positive polarity also deals with the limitation of the viewpoint, even though it attempts to serve other selves and see all as the Creator. But since the behaviors and thoughts of positively oriented entities also contain distortions there is the generation of much catalyst as positive entities interact with all other selves around them due to misperceptions and miscommunications—the “stuff of third density.” That is to say, third density is made out of such catalyst and thusly offers endless opportunities for seekers of truth to grow and polarize in consciousness. In 54.7, Don and Ra create the framework for how this “stuff of third density” works:

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.

This morning I spent about an hour working on Chapter 6 of Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work. I was able to share some of my own experiences as to how I was able to “follow my bliss,” as Joseph Campbell recommended in his books and talks, as a way of progressing on my spiritual journey. Then for the next hour I worked on eradicating mealy bugs on my Indian rope plant and my Hoya.

This afternoon I began weeding in the back yard and was able to weed the entire back yard, including the flowers in the center of the Moss Garden, the astilbe garden, the hidden garden, the new liriope garden next to the cross area, and the yellow creeping Jenny garden. My last job was to spray my neighbor’s Hosta and hydrangea bushes as we have gotten rain since I sprayed them yesterday.

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

August 10

Put On Spiritual Clothing

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

Putting on the clothing is part of the preparation for the day’s business. We suggest to you that you also put on the spiritual clothing of light which may aid the process of seeking during the day to come.

Visualize and call to the self that great armor of protection that goes before, follows after, guards upon each side and permeates each part and cell of your body. This armor of light enables the seeker to dwell within the state of joy and peace which the living waters of love, caught up in the armor of light, can bear.

Without such armor, without such deep remembrance of light, it is difficult to dance throughout the daily experience. Each time light is forgotten, be not discouraged but call in again upon yourself that great protection.

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.
