I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter One and the concept of consciousness:
The cosmic consciousness of the One Infinite Creator could be described by the words Love or Logos. In more practical terms these concepts are beings that can be seen as stars in the night sky. These are the beings which created the galaxies and planets, the variety of life forms in each density in this octave of creation, and every thing that exists. In 29.32, Ra gave a basic description of the nature of each Logos:
Questioner: I guess what we’d better get to then, now that we have traced the path of creation at least down to the crystalline structure, we’d better concentrate on the evolution of thought and its seeking path to intelligent infinity. We have created, in the major galaxy of the Logos, a very large number of planets. As these planets develop, is it possible for you to give me an example of various planetary developments in what I would call a metaphysical sense having to do with the development of consciousness and its polarities throughout the galaxy? In other words I believe that some of these planets develop quite rapidly into higher density planets and some take longer times. Can you give me some idea of that development?
Ra: I am Ra. This will be the final full query of this session.
The particular Logos of your major galaxy has used a large portion of Its coalesced material to reflect the beingness of the Creator. In this way there is much of your galactic system which does not have the progression of which you speak but dwells spiritually as a portion of the Logos. Of those entities upon which consciousness dwells there is, as you surmise, a variety of time/space periods during which the higher densities of experience are attained by consciousness.
This whole process occurs because the Creator focused Its free will to know Itself through these various Loves or Logoi to create the photon, or Light. As the photons of Light vibrate at various speeds and angles of rotation, what we see as matter is created. So, our universe is made out of love/light or light/love, and our individual consciousness is directly connected to this whole process. In 27.15-.16, Don and Ra describe this process of creation:
Questioner: Then I will expand a bit more on this concept. We have the infinite vibration of Love which can occur, I am assuming, at varying frequencies, if this has a meaning in this; I would assume that it begins at one basic frequency. Does this have any meaning? Am I making sense? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Each Love, as you term the prime movers, comes from one frequency, if you wish to use this term. This frequency is unity. We would perhaps liken it rather to a strength than a frequency, this strength being infinite, the finite qualities being chosen by the particular nature of this primal movement.
Questioner: Then this vibration which is, for lack of better understanding, which we would call pure motion; it is pure love; it is— it is not— there is nothing that is yet condensed, shall we say, to form any type or density of illusion. This Love then creates by this process of vibration a photon, as we call it, which is the basic particle of light. This photon then, by added vibrations and rotations, further condenses into particles of the densities, the various densities that we experience. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Each Logos refines the nature of the cosmic mind in a way unique to It and offers what is called the archetypical mind. The archetypical mind gives us a blueprint that describes the nature of our evolution in mind, body, and spirit. Each archetypical mind that is created also gives the One Creator more ways to know Itself. Ra developed the Major Arcana of the tarot as a means of categorizing various elements of our minds, bodies, and spirits to give us general guidelines for ways to view our own unique evolutionary process. In 90.14, Ra defined the archetypical mind thusly:
The archetypical mind is part of that mind which informs all experience. Please recall the definition of the archetypical mind as the repository of those refinements to the cosmic or all-mind made by this particular Logos and peculiar only to this Logos. Thus it may be seen as one of the roots of mind, not the deepest but certainly the most informative in some ways.
The next level of consciousness that is created by the Logos is the planetary mind. This is the mind of the population of any planet of whatever density from the fourth through the seventh. If a planet has a variety of races living upon it, as does our Earth, then there is also a racial mind that has its own particular flavor of experience and beingness that adds to the planetary mind. Both the planetary and racial minds are products of the accumulated memories or experiences of the entities which comprise them. Each of us adds our own experiences to both of these minds. In 91.7, Don and Ra discussed the planetary mind and the racial mind:
Questioner: Now, some entities on this planet evolved through second density into third and some were transferred from other planets to re-cycle in third density here. Did the ones who were transferred here to re-cycle in third density add to the planetary or racial mind?
Ra: I am Ra. Not only did each race add to the planetary mind but also each race possesses a racial mind. Thus we made this distinction in discussing this portion of mind. This portion of mind is formed in the series of seemingly non-simultaneous experiences which are chosen in freedom of will by the mind/body/spirit complexes of the planetary influence. Therefore, although this Akashic, planetary, or racial mind is indeed a root of mind it may be seen in sharp differentiation from the deeper roots of mind which are not a function of altering memory, if you will.
The next levels of mind to be considered are the unconscious and conscious mind of each entity within either a planetary or racial mind. Each individual entity will have both an unconscious and a conscious mind because of the presence of the veil of forgetting which separates the two. In the following quote Q’uo describes how the conscious and subconscious minds may be used to get helpful spiritual information in working with dreams:
It is well, if one wishes to work with the dreams, that one indeed prepare the self to do so. For in working with the dreams, one is working with the deeper portion of one’s own conscious and subconscious mind. At this level of awareness there is a perception of experience as a whole. There is the unification of that which seems broken to the conscious mind that resides within the deeper portions of the mind. And as you are able to work with this portion of your own mind, you develop a pattern or relationship which can be built upon, expanded and relied upon in all future endeavors. It is well therefore to, shall we say, convince the subconscious mind that you do indeed wish to seek that treasure which it has to offer. This may be accomplished by simple things that are repeated; that is, [make] the suggestion to the conscious mind, to yourself, as it would seem, that as you retire for the night and enter that state called sleep, you wish to remember those dreams which follow and that you have indeed prepared yourself to work with these dreams by placing, next to your sleeping position, the necessary writing utensil and paper or pad upon which you may record the dream upon waking. Q’uo, May 18, 2003.
There is a third type of mind that connects the conscious and unconscious minds, and that is what is called the intuition. The intuition is a means of communication utilized by the unconscious mind to give hints and clues to the conscious mind regarding the more appropriate thoughts or actions that the conscious seeker may take to aid its evolutionary process and its service to others choices. Here Q’uo talks about how the intuition can connect the conscious and unconscious minds:
The continued seeking by the conscious self creates an opening in what you have called the veil which separates the conscious from the unconscious mind, and through this opening, then, the symbols and images and messages from the unconscious are made available to the seeker in the form of dreams, and also in the form of what you may call the intuition or flashes of intuition and inspiration which occasionally lighten and brighten the conscious experience. Q’uo, May 22, 1983.
Thusly are all of these levels of mind, from the cosmic consciousness of the Creator to the conscious mind of each of us, a means of providing more information to the seeker of truth. As one ascends in the contact with the higher levels of mind, or consciousness, the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life is able to achieve a larger and larger perspective from which to experience the unitive nature of the Creator, the creation, and the self.
This morning I began my errand run at First Watch once again where I enjoyed a brunch of a Belgian waffle. Then I stopped at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. My next stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some ice cream and Kleenexes. Then I was off to the vet to buy some meds for Boscoe and Mr. Mush. My last stop was a Concept Cleaners where I bought bags for my vacuum cleaner.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
The Heart Of What You Learn
I am the spirit of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.
Much is not known to you. And because your minds ceaselessly seek knowledge, your ignorance is a burden. And you are concerned with learning more, gaining information and so controlling your environment.
The forces of love are not inimicable to the forces of mind. Rather, the voice of the spirit is that which, through and beneath all written and intellectual learnings, brings the heart of what you learn to the center of your own mind, thus ordering in a helpful and compassionate way that data which your mind would otherwise make into a maze into which it wanders, confused and uncertain.
By all means, seek that information which humankind has collected. But seek also that great judge and orderer of what is, for you and you alone, the creative and shaping force of the spirit of love. Thus peace and right knowledge shall be yours and your path shall be made clear. Trust your world, remembering to keep it in the hands of the spirit of Jesus the Christ.
We leave you in 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, 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.
