I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter Two and the section on the body/mind connection and catalyst:

The body/mind connection and catalyst

81.14 Questioner: And finally, the fourteenth, the Way of the Body, is called the Alchemist because there is an infinity of time for the various bodies to operate within to learn the lessons necessary for evolution. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is less than completely correct as the Great Way of the Body must be seen, as are all the archetypes of the body, to be a mirror image of the thrust of the activity of the mind.

The body is the creature of the mind and is the instrument of manifestation for the fruits of mind and spirit. Therefore, you may see the body as providing the athanor through which the alchemist manifests gold.”

Don asked Ra if the fact that we inhabit numerous bodies throughout our many incarnations within the third-density illusion would be the reason that in the Major Arcana of the tarot the Way of the Body is called the Alchemist. Alchemy is the ancient science that described transformations of one substance into another. So, Don wanted to know if our bodies aided us in transforming into higher states of awareness as we attempt to learn pre-incarnative lessons from incarnation to incarnation. Another way of looking at such a transformation would be the concept of our polarizing more and more positively in service to others until we are finally able to be graduated into the fourth density of love and understanding.

Ra gave Don credit for being mostly correct but then elaborated on Don’s assumption by saying that our body is a “creature of the mind”and is an instrument for the “manifestation of the fruits of mind and spirit”. What Ra is saying is that the mind cannot know itself within the third density without utilizing the body to speak its thoughts. Without the body the mind cannot move around within the third density and interact with other selves through the use of the body’s arms and legs as Ra said in 97.10:

Questioner: Thank you. Card Number Five, the Significator of the Mind, indicates, firstly, as I see it, simply a male within a rectangularly structured form. This suggests to me that the Significator of the Mind in third density is well-bounded within the illusion, as is also suggested by the fact that the base of the male is a rectangular form showing no ability for movement. Would Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. O student, you have grasped the barest essence of the nature of the Significator’s complete envelopment within the rectangle. Consider for the self, O student, whether your thoughts can walk. The abilities of the most finely honed mentality shall not be known without the use of the physical vehicle which you call the body. Through the mouth the mind may speak. Through the limbs the mind may effect action.

Because the body provides the mind with these abilities, the body promotes all the growth that is possible for the mind to make within all the bodies that we inhabit within our third-density incarnations. Therefore, Ra called the body the “athanor through which the alchemist manifests gold.” An athanor, by the way, is a furnace which alchemists used to maintain a steady heat. The steady heat in this case refers to how the body allows the mind to evolve in its evolution by processing the catalyst that the body makes available to the mind. In this quote Q’uo gave an overview of the catalyst of the body:

Fox: In a recent channeling practice circle session, those of Q’uo spoke to a question about the value of bodily catalyst and how to utilize it in our spiritual journey. I was hoping you might offer insight into bodily catalyst of those of us who are aging, especially if you could help us understand if there’s a difference between the bodily catalyst due to unprocessed mental catalyst, and also that which was preprogramed before this incarnation, and that bodily catalyst that comes from an aging body, and if you can process all three of those kinds in the same way.

I am Q’uo and am aware of your query, my sister. The catalyst of the body is that which is usually experienced when the mental faculties of the mind/body/spirit complex have not appropriately apprehended the nature of catalyst that has come before it. When this occurs, then there is oftentimes the giving over of the catalyst of the mind to that of the body in some form of physical maladjustment, shall we say, or dis-ease. This is in order that the mental faculties may then have a second opportunity to look upon this catalyst that was first omitted, and see there where there is information to be gained. This type of experience is quite common among most of the population of your planet that suffer the physical ailments that continue to repeat themselves and attempt to bring to light that which has remained in shadows for the mind.

However, as you also have mentioned, there is that catalyst which is simply the product of the physical vehicle’s aging process that shows to the mind/body/spirit complex that there is an ending approaching that will be able to offer to one, the release from the body vehicle, so that there might be a transition into the higher levels of the creation, the spiritual levels where the veil is removed and the purpose of all experience is revealed. That this might occur in the aging process—the ability of the body being lessened in its vitality, in its appearance, and in its overall functioning then—is a reminder, shall we say, to the mind complex that the purpose of the incarnation is to look beyond the nature of the physical experience and see the metaphysical experience revealed as symbolically in one fashion or another.

The type of aging which this partakes in, is that which is of a symbolic nature. The degradation of various portions of the body, then, become reminders that there is a greater purpose for the expression of the body, the mind and the spirit. There is, however, the overall quality of vitality in the body complex which supersedes or goes beyond the normal expression of bodily functions so that one may look at the body that is failing in one fashion or another as being a symbol of the mental process that can make associations between the type of failure of the body complex with other mental or spiritual qualities that might give the mind complex an indication of the next level of experience that it will be moving into in order to fulfill the preincarnative choices that have been made by the entity. Q’uo, October 26, 2019.

In the overall sense of how this all works, it is as though our minds are riding a noble steed throughout all of our incarnations on Earth, and we are growing in the spiritual sense because we can transform our catalyst into the gold of opening our hearts in unconditional love to all. We become transformed into Players on the Enhanced Game Board of life.

This afternoon I went over to southern Indiana to visit Connie, a dear friend of Carla’s and mine, who has been in a care home for over three years now due to two strokes she suffered in the summer of 2019. I took along a little cake and ice cream that we shared, and then I read to her from A Wanderer’s Handbook. I always feel so sorry for Connie because she will probably be in this care home for the rest of her life as the right side of her body is paralyzed, but I am sure that she, like everyone else, has pre-incarnatively programmed this experience as a means of learning to open her heart in unconditional love. One just has to have faith that all is well and that all will be well.

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

January 21

For Those Who Trust

I am the spirit of Jesus the Christ, the gift and manifestation of the Son of Man, the servant of all. I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

If you ask the outer world what conditions are pleasant for growth you may, perhaps, not find the conditions which appear before you this day. Much may seem out of place, disquieting and disturbing. The peace of the spirit of love is that peace which trusts that the consciousness of love abides in each and every situation and that, in the outworking of time, the justice of the sweep of the world’s actions may eventually be seen. From day to day, however, without the benefit of hindsight, the spirit of God lies in wait for those who trust.

May you trust the superior and final nature of love, both this day and forever. 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.
