I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 103 quote today comes from Chapter One and the section on the balancing exercises:

Discipline of the personality—balancing exercises

The balancing exercises that Ra gave us are a means of creating a discipline of our personalities by processing our catalyst that is related to each of the chakras, or energy centers, in our body. As the love/light, or intelligent energy, of the Logos is attracted through our south pole, it begins its upward journey through our energy system starting with the red-ray chakra. This chakra deals with sexuality and survival. Any catalyst can be used in any of our chakras, depending on how clear of blockages our chakras are. As we move up the remaining chakras we move through personal eccentricities, group energies, the open heart, clear communication, universal consciousness, and the sacred nature of each moment. Our movement through our energy centers is similar to our progress through the densities, only on a smaller scale. In 50.2, Ra described how the south pole attracts our experiences (which are likely pre-incarnative choices) to us for our use in growth:

Questioner: In the last session [you] made the statement that experiences are attracted to the entity through the south pole. Could you expand on that and give us a definition of what you mean?

Ra: I am Ra. It takes some consideration to accomplish the proper perspective for grasping the sense of the above information. The south or negative pole is one which attracts. It pulls unto itself those things magnetized to it. So with the mind/body/spirit complex. The in-flow of experience is of the south pole influx. You may consider this a simplistic statement.

The only specific part of this correctness is that the red-ray or foundation energy center, being the lowest or root energy center of the physical vehicle, will have the first opportunity to react to any experience. In this way only, you may see a physical locus of the south pole being identified with the root energy center. In every facet of mind and body the root or foundation will be given the opportunity to function first.

What is this opportunity but survival? This is the root possibility of response and may be found to be characteristic of the basic functions of both mind and body. You will find this instinct the strongest, and once this is balanced much is open to the seeker. The south pole then ceases blocking the experiential data and higher energy centers of mind and body become availed of the opportunity to use the experience drawn to it.

The work that we do in the third density sets the stage for millions of years of refining and crystallizing our chakra system as we move through the higher densities. As we move through each density, the corresponding chakra for that density will have the opportunity to function far more fully. Here Q’uo gives us a general overview of our evolution in the higher densities:

We would respond by noting that in higher densities there is still a certain amount of limitation of the viewpoint due to being incarnate. It is not that higher densities are aware of the future but rather that, beginning in fourth density, there is no veil, so that there is a complete transparency concerning your own thoughts, motivations and so forth and the thoughts and motivations of others as well.

It does not make you a person without distortions. It makes you a person able to see the reason distortions occur. And, consequently, it makes you a person able to have utter compassion upon your own distortions and those of others and to be willing to collaborate, distorted though you are, distorted though others are, in the dance of manifestation and in the process of acquiring insight.

When one is between incarnations, regardless of the density in which this occurs, one is indeed able to view the full panoply of experience which has been gained by one’s soul stream. However, it does not make one able to see or predict the future. It makes one able to be more wholly aware of all of the influences that have washed through the soul stream, leaving their blessings behind.

There is a subtlety that is endless to the question of selfhood and because of the fact that the Creator itself is a mystery, so are you a spark of that Creator, wrapped in and bound by mystery. What some call enlightenment and what others call becoming able to awaken one’s magical personality is not a matter of knowing more. Rather it is a matter of accepting that little bit which one knows, therefore becoming able to be authentically and genuinely who one is. This is your search and this is your gift, to find yourself and to celebrate yourself.

The point at which all things are known is that point at which all desires have been explored and fulfilled so that there is no longer attachment to anything, be it personhood, achievements or understanding, that shall keep you from placing your entire hope and desire and will towards returning completely to the one infinite Creator, gaining spiritual gravity and losing all memory of self, wrapped at last in infinite unity. Until that occurs, many densities from your present position within this cycle of grades of school, shall we say, you shall have to do without knowledge of the future, my brother, and free will shall be scrupulously observed. Q’uo, May 9, 2009.

In order to achieve a balance in our energy centers we process our catalyst in a way in which will help us to appreciate ourselves more and more as 360-degree beings containing the entire universe of emotions and experiences within us. In the following quote Ra gave us the technique for doing this:

To begin to master the concept of mental discipline it is necessary to examine the self. The polarity of your dimension must be internalized. Where you find patience within your mind you must consciously find the corresponding impatience and vice versa. Each thought that a being has, has in its turn an antithesis. The disciplines of the mind involve, first of all, identifying both those things of which you approve and those things of which you disapprove within yourself, and then balancing each and every positive and negative charge with its equal. The mind contains all things. Therefore, you must discover this completeness within yourself.

The second mental discipline is acceptance of the completeness within your consciousness. It is not for a being of polarity in the physical consciousness to pick and choose among attributes, thus building the roles that cause blockages and confusions in the already-distorted mind complex. Each acceptance smooths part of the many distortions that the faculty you call judgment engenders. Ra, 5.2

The most efficient way to utilize the balancing procedure would seem to be if we combined a meditation at the end of each day with a systematic recall of each day’s catalyst. No matter what the catalyst is: anger/acceptance, happy/sad, patience/impatience, love/hate, confident/confused, willing/unwilling, optimistic/pessimistic, satisfied/dissatisfied, or whatever emotional response has made a distinct impression on your mind, you first accentuate the actual experience. Then you visualize the opposite emotion and let it come into your meditative mind by itself until it is as accentuated as the original emotion. Then you accept yourself for having both means of knowing yourself and the Creator more fully. The reason that this process works was revealed by Ra in 104.2:

It is the way of distortion that in order to balance a distortion one must accentuate it.

In 74.11, Ra gave a synopsis of how the balancing exercises work:

Questioner: Now, what I am trying to get at is how these disciplines affect the energy centers and the power, shall I say, of the white magician. Could you, will you tell me how that works?

Ra: I am Ra. The heart of the discipline of the personality is threefold. One, know yourself. Two, accept yourself. Three, become the Creator.

The third step is that step which, when accomplished, renders one the most humble servant of all, transparent in personality and completely able to know and accept other-selves. In relation to the pursuit of the magical working the continuing discipline of the personality involves the adept in knowing itself, accepting itself, and thus clearing the path towards the great indigo gateway to the Creator. To become the Creator is to become all that there is. There is then no personality in the sense with which the adept begins its learn/teaching. As the consciousness of the indigo ray becomes more crystalline, more work may be done; more may be expressed from intelligent infinity.

To become the Creator may take many lifetimes of spiritual seeking the truth and is certainly the work of the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life.

This morning I continued working on a book recently written by a friend of L/L Research on the topics of the archetypes of the mind, body, and spirit. He would like my thoughts on his work, so I am taking notes as I go with the hope of being able not only to congratulate him on a job very well done but also offer a suggestion here and there to enhance his work.

At noon I was again a guest on Jonathan Tong’s Seattle Law of One Study Group as I am the first Saturday of each month. Our sessions always utilize the Q & A format. As always, the questions that I was asked to give my opinion upon today covered a wide range of topics and were all very thoughtful and representative of sincere spiritual seeking.

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

January 7

Spend Yourselves Wisely

I am the spirit of the consciousness of love. I come in the name of Jesus the Christ, in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

It is an unhappy thing that your peoples find so much pleasure in vain recreations and idle pursuits. For the right use of the illusion may be seen to be that not of the path of least resistance but often the path of most resistance.

Yet it is no penalty to those who must rest from their labors. Rather, it shall be seen, in the context of larger life, that so much precious time was spent as a spendthrift spends money, not for gain but for gadgets.

Spend yourselves, my children, and do not count the cost. Insofar as your will is able to lead you, when the time comes for rest accept your limitations and lie down to be comforted in whatever distractions amuse you. Yet know that if there is energy within you and you spend it foolishly, you shall count it against yourself in the eternal now which is your birthright.

We wish you peace, yet peace which has the sword’s edge; peace that shall forever remove the virginity of innocent delight from your days and replace it with the worshipful gaze of the lover. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.
