I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on stewardship of the tribe of humankind:

Stewardship of the tribe of humankind

Your people have banded together in spiritually oriented groups whose goals are to serve the Creator by serving each other. The tribe of humankind is more and more awakening to the possibilities of the evolution of the spirit. And this increasing desire to serve has brought people together into groups that respond to the less fortunate developments upon your planet with the balm of their light and their prayers and their loving thoughts. We indeed thank those who are engaged in such groups and who are proactively sending light and love to all those places and all those entities who need the balm of that light and that love. Q’uo, March 19, 2011

The tribe of humankind is made up of all the entities who now live within the third density on planet Earth. Most entities on Earth are not consciously aware that such a tribe exists or that they are part of it. But Q’uo reminded us that many people on Earth are consciously aware of their being part of the tribe of humankind and seek to advance the evolution of the spirit in each person on Earth by being of service to them. Just as Ra said that “those who together seek shall far more surely find,” many people who are consciously aware of being members of the tribe of humankind are forming groups to work together to send their light and love to those on Earth who need that light and love to deal with destructive weather patterns, disease, oppression by authoritarian governments, war, and hunger. This type of spiritual work is enhanced by those forces of light which work from the inner planes as in the magical sense and answer the call of those who seek to aid people in need.

In the following quote Q’uo spoke to the way we most effectively can be of service to others:

Serving someone is not necessarily pleasing the entity. Serving someone is not necessarily doing anything to, with or for an entity. Serving someone is fundamentally the awareness that you and the person you are serving are one entity, united, singular and absolutely equal. Rejoicing in the apparent differences, a servant of the light relates to other selves as “themselves,” knowing that the self and the other-self are a certain kind of entity, citizens of eternity, dwellers beyond time and space, within a universe that is as wide as infinity and as small as the interior of the human heart.

Indeed, may we say that from our perspective, the universe lies within each of your hearts and all the stars and all the galaxies actually reside within. So as you sit upon your blanket and gaze at the outward stars, you are also gazing within at precisely the same view. That which lies within you is infinity, blessing, grace and the infinite Creator whose consciousness is all that there is.

Service is bound up in the knowing of this relationship and this nature so that when one who is a servant of the light and of the Godhead principle, shall we say, gazes upon an other self, no matter what that self is asking, the basic service is the connection of unity without judgment of any kind but with absolute faith that this entity is a spiritual entity and is to be honored, loved, respected and treated as a spiritual entity.” Q’uo, May 4, 2003

Q’uo made sure that we understand that our service to and stewardship of another person within the tribe of humanity is based upon the fact that we are one with that person and the Creator within us both. We should begin any such service with this basic recognition of our unity, and then we can rejoice in our seeming differences as equal portions of the one Creator, containing the infinity of galaxies, stars, and planets within us. When this type of a foundation has been laid within our minds and hearts, as we set about being of service, we are then functioning within the true reality of our being, and we let any service flow from us as is asked of us as clearly and cleanly as a crystal-clear river of love bubbling forth from our hearts.

This means of preparing ourselves for service to others may seem too abstract for the normal type of service that most people are used to offering. But I believe that it is a most helpful frame of mind and heart to experience before we undertake the mundane nature of any service to another person. Giving service just to be chalking up points on the fifty-one percent service to others threshold needed for Harvest seems like a rather lackluster exercise without at least some measure of the larger picture that Q’uo painted in their quote above. Seeing all as the One in the infinity of our beings and letting our service flow forth as a river of unconditional love is the work of the Player on the Enhanced Game Board of life.

This afternoon I went to visit my friend, Connie, who lives in a care home in Southern Indiana. We always start our visit, after she has had lunch, with a little cake and ice cream. Eventually I read to her from Archangels and Ascended Masters by Doreen Virtue. We found some very inspirational material there today. It is always good to see Connie and to appreciate how she is able to live with the right side of her body paralyzed from strokes three years ago. She is such a sweet and strong soul.

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

November 19


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

You gaze at the day with eyes askance and skate about upon the surface of your consciousness as though moving your hand across the skin of an orange. Yet deep inside you, you ache with loneliness because you have not sought to live within the depth of the present moment of life. You have not acknowledged your nature.

Peel back, then, that thick skin of happenstance which is the continuum of your day and see your true nature in the seeds of Godhead nestled within the meat of your humanity. For the Creator has made you in His image, and, as you are consciousness, just so this consciousness cannot be anything other than the Creator.

May you search for and touch the seeds of your inner essence this day and each day. Thus shall surface activity resonate with inner meaning. Love and the consciousness of love bless all circumstance.

We leave you in the comfort of joy and the perfect peace of love, now and always. 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.
