I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote is from Chapter Seven and the concept of interaction between systems:

Interaction between systems

Therefore, you are spiritual beings dwelling in a material and physical world. Everything that is at the center of your being calls out for the Creator and sees life from the point of view of spirit. Yet, you have been brought into a culture which encourages precisely the opposite bent of thought. Your culture encourages you to release thoughts of spirituality in favor of thoughts of functionality, economics, socialization, doing what is expected, and so forth. These two energies are a dynamic that are with each entity within third density to one extent or another for his entire incarnation.” Q’uo, May 6, 2007

Q’uo reminded us that we are spiritual beings that are living in a material world. All the concerns that we have for that physical world, in order to be most helpful to that physical world, need to be fruit of our spiritual journeys which sees all of the creation as one thing: the One Creator. In this way we may more effectively bring our inner fire of love to bear as the framework in which we see humanity, weather, wind, water, and our planet itself all linked together as energetic expressions of the One Creator. So if we wish to coordinate an interaction between all these systems—and any others as well—we might ask ourselves questions such as “How would love function most effectively in this system?” “How would love be manifested in aiding this system to function for the welfare of all?” “What is keeping love from being expressed in this system?” These are questions best pondered in our hearts in contemplation, meditation and prayer.

In the following quote Carla encouraged us to remember that we are all one and what we do affects all systems, people, and the Earth itself.

“Whatever we do, whatever we live in the world to add to its beauty and decrease its suffering, helps. Some of the outer ways of serving others take a degree of toughness which many awakened spirits may not have. If we identify ourselves with those sensitized souls and find ourselves shrinking from committee, caucus and protest, then let us resolve instead to develop our ability to think and envision globally, to see ourselves as one planet, one folk, one population. We are the people of Earth. It is up to us to give to the Earth our song of being and of love, in hopes of fulfilling our service to the planet and benefitting all people. Let us place and keep peace within our hearts daily, and invest faith in the positive future of humankind as we move through this end time, where a new world is being made within us and within our planet. May we sing with the grass, the wind and the stars, of love and light and unity.” Carla L. Rueckert, A Wanderer’s Handbook, pg. 472

Carla said that we can choose to be of service to humanity and Mother Earth in either outer or inner ways. Outer ways of working politically, socially, or economically may not appeal to the spiritual seeker of truth because it is so easy to get lost in the mundane world and its many seemingly separating ways of accomplishing the goals of aiding our planet and all people in achieving harmonious solutions to problems like global warming, homelessness, poverty, health care for all, immigration, equal representation at all levels of government.

I was most inspired by Carla’s inner ways of service to humanity and Mother Earth. She emphasized that there is a new Earth being made within us as we keep our hearts open in love and have faith in the process of the evolution of humanity into a social memory complex that can move into the fourth density of love and understanding. This is the goal of all positive third-density seekers of truth throughout the universe. Once we have made that Choice to be of service to others we have made the first steps into unity with all whom we serve. Each day brings us closer and closer to this goal.

This morning I took Mr. Mush to the vet to have the abscess area on his chin looked at. Almost all the fluids are gone from this area, so I need to keep using a warm moist cloth to dampen and loosen the dead skin there so new skin can grow back. The vet also discovered a growth inside Mush’s mouth that might be another abscess, or it could be cancer. I will bring him back to the vet next Monday for an X-ray to determine what this growth is.

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

November 17

Rise Up Today

I am the spirit of the consciousness of love in the vibration which comforts this instrument. I greet you in the name of that love and in the Christhood that is the birthright of all.

I ask those of you with stubborn and resilient hearts to rise up, not only this day but every day, realizing the morning of your strength, the noon of your eagerness, the evening of your peace and the nighttime of your content, dwelling in the house of the Lord.

I ask you to rise up and become citizens of the kingdom for which you yearn, that you may transform each perception of the mundane that comes before you into that of the heavenly. For this you must gird your loins and put on the battle armor of a caring and redemptive warrior.

May you go forth to wage peace everlasting. 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.
