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 100.11:

Questioner: The entities— the small black— or russet— and white entities have been now changed so that they appear to be sphinxes which we are assuming mean that the catalyst has been mastered. I am also assuming that they act as the power that moves the chariot depicted here so as this mastery enables the mind in its transformation to become mobile unlike it was prior to this mastery, locked within the illusion. Would Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, we ask that the student consider the Great Way not as the culmination of a series of seven activities or functions but as a far more clearly delineated image of the environment within which the mind, body, or spirit shall function. Therefore, the culturally determined creatures called sphinxes do not indicate mastery over catalyst.

The second supposition, that of placing the creatures as the movers of the chariot of mind, has far more virtue. You may connote the concept of time to the image of the sphinx. The mental and mental/emotional complex ripens and moves and is transformed in time.”

In Card Number Seven, the Great Way of the Mind, which is also known as the Conqueror or Chariot, Don noted that we again have two small black and white entities that look like sphinxes, and he assumes that they represent the mastery of catalyst and are also the movers of the chariot. He asked Ra if this movement could be interpreted as the conscious mind has now been transformed and is able to move whereas before it could not move. Ra responded that the Great Way of the Mind does not represent a culmination of all seven images of the mind, but it describes the environment of the third-density illusion in which the mind functions. Therefore, the sphinxes do not represent mastery of catalyst of the illusion. Further, Ra suggested that the sphinxes represent time regarding their relationship to the mind.  Ra said the mind matures, or ripens, over a period of time during which it is busy processing catalyst and in gaining the resulting experience. In this regard the sphinxes do, indeed, help the chariot to move through the environment of the mind, as the mind is continually being transformed by its magical work of producing growth from catalyst. In 92.17, Ra focused on the nature of the Great Way of the Mind as that portion of the mind which creates the environment in which the mind moves:

While studying the archetypical mind we may suggest that the student look at the Great Way of the Mind, not as that which is attained after contact with intelligent infinity, but rather as that portion of the archetypical mind which denotes and configures the particular framework within which the Mind, the Body, or the Spirit archetypes move.

In 103.12, Ra gives Don a little riddle as to what it is that moves the Great Way of the Mind’s chariot:

Questioner: I am guessing that the wheels on this chariot indicate the ability of the mind to be able now to move in time/space. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. We cannot say that the observation is totally incorrect, for there is as much work in time/space as the individual who evokes this complex of concepts has assimilated.

However, it would be more appropriate to draw the attention to the fact that although the chariot is wheeled, it is not harnessed to that which draws it by a physical or visible harness. What then, O Student, links and harnesses the chariot’s power of movement to the chariot?

I have always thought that it was the will of the seeker of truth that moved the chariot. I could be wrong.

This morning I went shopping for groceries just after 8 am at Kroger’s and for more deer and rabbit repellent at Walmart. After I got home I did the sheets, pillow cases, and one bedspread in the basement after recent visitors had stayed in two of the bedrooms. Then I continued editing Chapter 6 of 103.

This afternoon I finished weeding the side yard and the front yard so that all of the yard has now been weeded. Then I sprayed my neighbor’s flowers and my flowers with deer and rabbit repellent once again as we got an unexpected rain last night.

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

August 11

The Race Of Detail And Duty

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

We see that you have many concerns upon your minds this day and are already eagerly planning how to run the race of detail and duty. How quickly you feel you must run!

Know that the love of Jesus the Christ moves effortlessly and gracefully with you in each moment of concern, in each detail of the working day. As close as breathing is this love which smooths and makes plentiful time, energy and coordination.

Indeed, there is no lack of things to do, yet neither is there a lack of service to offer in love. Let each detail be transformed by the inner asking of the knowledge of the love and service breathed forth by the spirit upon all material things.

We leave you in perfect 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.
