I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 102 quote for today comes from Chapter Eight and the section on: patterns of choice and the initial choice:

Patterns of Choice

The initial choice

The seniority of vibration has allowed those entities who have the best chance of making the Harvest to be on Earth now. The third density on Earth is coming to its natural end, and each entity within the current population of Earth was most hopeful before incarnating that they could use the remaining time to make the choice of service to others or service to self.

Thusly, treasure this incarnation and realize the gift that it represents for each of you. This is your last opportunity to make and sustain the choice of polarity that shall lead you through graduation and into your taking up higher-density work. Those who do not make a choice of polarity and sustain that choice until polarity is built up to the point where you are able to bear the light of higher densities shall experience another cycle of third-density incarnations upon another planet and shall once again take up the lessons of love.

We emphasize that in our opinion there is no true downside to this equation. If you are not ready to make that choice, you have all the time in the world to consider it further. If you are ready, then this is the opportunity to seize the day, to take hold of the direction and path of your spiritual evolution and to invest your walk into the light with every fiber of your being, every hope and every joy and enthusiasm. Give thanks, my friends, for these are wonderful days for those who wish to make that choice and to walk that path towards the light.” Q’uo, April 16, 2006

Q’uo said that our current incarnations are a treasure as they may be our last chance to make the choice of service to others as the third-density experience is coming to an end on planet Earth. At this point within the time of harvest Ra suggested that it appears that the harvest will be small because most of the population of Earth is expressing so much division, anger, and confusion. (13.23) There just seems to be too much catalyst for most people to process, and if this is the case, they will get to make another try at opening their hearts in unconditional love on another third-density planet when they leave this world.

However, for every conscious spiritual seeker the remaining days of the incarnation are a time of great expectations and rejoicing. It is hoped that this choice of positive polarity may become the path to the fourth density of love and understanding when the body is dropped and the spirit walks into the light and enters its true home. It is at this time that the violet-ray energy center is evaluated by the light to see if the entity may sustain the impact of the light as Ra stated here:

Each energy center has a wide range of rotational speed or as you may see it more clearly in relation to color, brilliance. The more strongly the will of the entity concentrates upon and refines or purifies each energy center, the more brilliant or rotationally active each energy center will be. It is not necessary for the energy centers to be activated in order in the case of the self-aware entity. Thusly entities may have extremely brilliant energy centers while being quite unbalanced in their violet-ray aspect due to lack of attention paid to the totality of experience of the entity.

The key to balance may then be seen in the unstudied, spontaneous, and honest response of entities toward experiences, thus using experience to the utmost, then applying the balancing exercises and achieving the proper attitude for the most purified spectrum of energy center manifestation in violet ray. This is why the brilliance or rotational speed of the energy centers is not considered above the balanced aspect or violet ray manifestation of an entity in regarding harvestability; for those entities which are unbalanced, especially as to the primary rays, will not be capable of sustaining the impact of the love and light of intelligent infinity to the extent necessary for harvest. (41.19)

In the following quote Q’uo reveals another way of looking at how the Choice may be made for service to others or service to self:

You ask us this day concerning how to live with the heart opened and vulnerable, and we say to you that this question is central in attempting to make the choice of service to others or the choice of service to self that this incarnation that you are now experiencing is so much concerned with. There is always an abundance of ways in which we may speak of the ways of service and the ways of polarization, and yet nothing is more direct a way of addressing the issue of polarity than to speak of the open heart. Those who wish to serve the Creator by serving others are those who truly wish to open the heart. Those who wish to follow the path of service to self find a closed heart necessary in order to polarize negatively. Q’uo, January 19, 1997

In this quote Q’uo was suggesting how we can live with our hearts open and vulnerable when we make the choice of service to others as opposed to making the choice of service to self. They said that being open and vulnerable is really a most important feature when one is considering the path to being of service to others as we are actually also seeing the Creator in the other selves that we wish to serve. Q’uo said that entities who wish to be only of service to themselves, of necessity, close their hearts to others and do not see the Creator in others. So opening our hearts is the primary ingredient in being of service to others and making that our polarizing choice as we go through our daily round of activities. The initial choice of opening our hearts in service to others then is doubled and redoubled and redoubled continuously as time passes and our polarization in consciousness steadily increases.

This morning I finished stuffing the Christmas cards into their envelopes and put stamps on them to finish the job much earlier that I thought that I would. Then I vacuumed the first floor of the house.

This afternoon I got started on washing the crystal, China, and silver that rests on shelves above the cupboards in the kitchen. All of these items were in Carla’s family for a couple of generations, but there was no place to display them until we had our kitchen remodeled in 1994. There are four large areas of shelving housing these heirlooms, and it usually takes about six or seven loads in the dish washer to get them all cleaned. I got the first load done today.

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

December 2

The Heavenly Food Of Love

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

Let not any fear dismay you this day. Let thy shoulders turn towards that which warms the soul. Let thy heart rest on that which feeds the heart. For the heavenly food of love and joy permeate the creation. And to one who can open like a flower to feel the subtle sunshine of silent love within creation, there is abundant thanksgiving in all directions.

Be aware of the plenty, the fullness, the grace, and the surety of love. You are loved most deeply. Go your way therefore in peace, carrying within you the precious burden of that love, that you may share it with a universe all too unaware of its own glory.

We leave you in love and peace, in the name and spirit of Jesus the Christ, now and forever. 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.
