I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 103 quote today comes from Chapter Two and the section on seeing all as the Creator:

Seeing all as the Creator

For in service to another, inevitably you are serving yourself. For as many philosophies upon your planet have stated, the universe and all that is in it are one being, and no more, with each being and each particle within it being exactly that: one particle within a whole, all united within consciousness and spirit. And through this unification comes about the undeniable fact that service to one is service to all, and to oneself. You, my friends, are the Creator and the gods which are spoken of in the scriptures, as is everyone and everything within this universe. Accept separations within your consciousness, and they shall exist temporarily for you. But deny them, my friends, and the ones which you have been accepting for so long shall begin to fade from your awareness. And you shall begin to awaken to the true concept of oneness. And you shall begin to know the truth: that there are no separations. Hatonn, December 7, 1975

Carla channeled this quote from Hatonn five years before the Ra contact began, and yet it stated as well as ever has been stated how all of us are one. As Ra said in their first contact with us they were bringing us a slightly different slant upon a message which is “always and ever the same.” Some people call it the “perennial philosophy” that has been espoused throughout the history of the mystical experience on Earth and which Q’uo describes eloquently and in detail in this quote:

We have only one truth to offer, one thought. All the rest is embellishment and various ways of discussing that thought and its implications. This thought is that which is a Logos, a Thought so creative and so primary that it forms that which is both Creator and created. That one great original Thought is Love. Within the system of organized religion that you call Christianity there are the words, “In the beginning was the Word.” This is the Word of which we speak. That word that created all was and is and shall be love, yet love as you understand it is most pale and weak compared to that vital love which both creates and destroys.

Within this love are all things visible and invisible. Each consciousness listening to these words is a complex which is love and which manifests in various forms of love. Many are the distortions of that love, yet the energy within them, no matter how great the distortion, is that of love. Often in the attempts to progress either emotionally, mentally, physically or spiritually various things are attempted, tested and tried to see whether they be resources or be found wanting. And so as the seeking soul moves through the moment by moment living out of that love which is all that there is, many structures are tried within which the experience of living makes more sense.

The query this evening concerns one such structure. Within this structure which is not original to us but [is] an amiable portion of the perennial philosophy [that] that which meets the physical senses is to be seen as the reflection of self, your medical doctors consider that various people are seen by the self to be, as the one known as Jim said in his query, projecting onto others that which is actually within. This can be taken too far quite handily, and we would suggest a tempering of the ease with which generalities are made, for indeed all possible actions, motives and ideas whatsoever are a portion of each consciousness which hears these words. All things are one. The self seems to be separate and seems to have a certain personality. This is largely an illusion, the illusion having been created so that the consciousnesses within it could do work and thereby progress spiritually. Within this illusion other entities shall almost always seem to be other, for it is only within the intimacy of intense catalyst, the love-making or the shared creative experience or the laughter that ends in tears, that hearts become so close as to perceive their actual unity, one with the other. Q’uo, December 11, 1994.

In short, we all have the Creator within us, and no matter where we go or what we do, we are the Creator knowing Itself, seeking Itself, and serving Itself. All of the illusions of separation that exist in this third-density are the Creator. They are other versions of ourselves as we all partake in that grand procession through the octave of densities back into total union with the one infinite Creator. What a grand and glorious dance it is as Q’uo described:

There are many, many entities that move upon this great journey of seeking, that move as in a dance, in a harmony that is unseen by those who do not look, and yet they dance to the tune, to the beat of the heart of the one infinite Creator. Yes, all dance and move in rhythmic patterns. The balance in all of the creation is one and is perfect. That which each does as his or her own contribution to this great dance and journey of seeking is that which has been planned aforetimes, shall we say. There is a pattern to movement, a pattern to thought, a pattern to seeking, a pattern to suffering, a pattern to all that is. Q’uo, October 17, 1999.

This afternoon I went outside and began work on the huge sycamore tree in the back yard that my sump pump technician recommended on the hollowed out portion of the tree that begins on the ground. It is big enough to be able to get inside it, and it looks like either termites or ants have been responsible for creating this great gap in the base of the tree that threatens to bring the tree down at some point in the future. A few years ago I had a tree service put two cables on the three main trunks to keep the tree from falling. The technician recommended scraping away all of the heart rot material possible and I got about five 5-gallon buckets full of this dead material. Then I used the sprayer on the garden hose to spray any remaining dust pieces out of the hole. I have ordered some insecticide to use in the next couple of days and some undercoating sealing to paint over the inside of the cavity so no further deterioration occurs.

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

January 18

You Have Good Gifts

I am the spirit of the full consciousness of love in the vibration which comforts this instrument. I greet you in the love of Jesus Christ.

The nature of the Comforter is both particular and personal. Yet it does not expend itself in the movement from the winds of opportunity to the heart of one who prays that the Holy Spirit may therein enter.

The same principle which enlivens your heart and engages your attention in a spiritually rewarding manner may also then be used by you to show forth the glory of God to others. There is no deadness in the spirit, for all are alive in Jesus Christ.

Therefore, know that you have good gifts and are not going to find it necessary to act for your Lord without the help of the Holy Spirit. It was truly said that until the ending of the age Jesus would never leave His flock, for we are the principle of Jesus Christ and of the nature of Christ’s consciousness. Thusly you and we work together to shine the light of peace and understanding upon a world which does not yet understand that all that exists is, alike, holy.

We wish you peace, now and always. 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.
