I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on the archetypical mind:

The Archetypical Mind

Now within this process of the evolution of our mind/body/spirit complexes on our return to the one Creator, through the process of polarizing our consciousness either in service to others or in service to the self, there is an entire system of studying the nature of this evolutionary process which is some of the most intricate spiritual information that Ra shared with us: the archetypical mind. Basically, you could define the archetypical mind as a blueprint of the nature of our evolution in mind, in body, and in spirit. The Primal Logos created the first and basic version of this blueprint or architecture of evolution, as Ra described it in 91.37:

The archetypical mind, when penetrated lucidly, is a blueprint of the builded structure of all energy expenditures and all seeking, without distortion. This, as a resource within the deep mind, is of great potential aid to the adept.

However, each of the infinite Logoi utilizes this blueprint of the Primal Logos in unique ways by refining it in a manner that might be seen as equivalent to regional colloquialisms that are utilized in speaking the same language. For example, in the United States each part of our country has these unique idioms and ways of speaking that give some words a slightly different meaning in one part of the country than the way they are used in other parts of the country, but the language being spoken is still English in most cases although Spanish is also spoken more often as time goes on and could be seen as representative of a different Logos, shall we say. Each Logos wishes to aid the Creator in knowing Itself in ways that are more pure, more intense, and with great variety as Ra described in 90.16:

Questioner: What was the ultimate objective of this Logos in designing the archetypical mind as It did?

Ra: I am Ra. Each Logos desires to create a more eloquent expression of experience of the Creator by the Creator. The archetypical mind is intended to heighten this ability to express the Creator in patterns more like the fanned peacock’s tail: each facet of the Creator vivid, upright, and shining with articulated beauty.

Now, in completing this section on how all of our minds are connected to the great cosmic mind of the one Creator, how we progress through the densities by making choices that help the Creator to know Itself, and how each of us evolves in consciousness by utilizing the concepts of the archetypical mind, I would like to give you a brief synopsis of the various archetypes of the mind.

When Ra was in the third density on Venus they created the tarot utilized what later became the twenty two cards of the Major Arcana of the tarot to symbolize the nature of our evolution through the third density that would culminate in our graduating into the fourth density. Each facet of our mind/body/spirit complex has a series of seven cards of the Major Arcana that contain a number of images on each card. The images can be interpreted in ways that demonstrate particular aspects of the mind, the body, and the spirit as each is able to aid our overall spiritual evolution. However, as each of us is a unique being we each will perceive the various facets on each of the tarot cards of the Major Arcana in a unique way as Ra said in 77.23:

We request that it be constantly kept before the mind, as the candle before the eye, that each mind/body/spirit complex shall, and should, and indeed must perceive each archetype, if you use this convenient term, in its own way.

Therefore, you may see that precision is not the goal; rather, quality of general concept complex perception is the goal.

The mind, the body, and the spirit each have seven general categories of activity that are called the Matrix, the Potentiator, the Catalyst, the Experience, the Significator, the Transformation, and the Great Way. The interaction of these of these twenty one cards eventually leads to the twenty second card, The Choice, which is either towards service to others or towards service to self, depending upon the desire of the seeker. During the Ra contact we got specific interpretations of each of the various images that appear on the seven cards of the mind, but we only got general information about the archetypes of the body and the spirit, so I will focus my synopsis on the seven cards of the mind. I should add that the tarot deck that we used during the Ra contact was the Egyptian Tarot created by the Church of Light in 1969, in Los Angeles, California. We re-drew the seven Arcanum of the Mind cards to reflect the removal of astrological images according to Ra’s suggestions. Ra felt it was better not to mix astrology and the tarot as each presents a different way of studying the archetypical mind. These seven cards can be found in Book IV of The Law of One or in the second volume of The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One.

Arcanum Number One is called the Matrix of the Mind, or the Magician. Ra referred to the Magician as the conscious mind in general and, more specifically, the will. Ra said that the Magician is “full of the magic that is to come.” Using our conscious mind to make choices can be seen as a magical process of changing our consciousness. But Ra also described the Magician as being “unfed” and “unmoving”, much like a young baby must slowly learn to move around and explore its environment. So in order to move and gain experience, and exercise its will, the conscious mind must be activated or potentiated by the unconscious mind which is Arcanum Number Two, The High Priestess. Since the High Priestess is the unconscious mind it is connected to the racial mind, the planetary mind, and the cosmic mind and, therefore, provides an infinite amount of resources that the conscious mind has to call upon as it gains in experience.

So the role of the High Priestess is to potentiate all activity that the conscious mind will ever experience. Besides having the infinite connection to all levels of consciousness in the universe, the High Priestess also is acutely aware of all pre-incarnative choices that each of us has made before our present incarnations. These pre-incarnative choices then are colored or biased by the unconscious mind in such a way as to give the conscious mind a lens through which to look at or interpret its interaction with other people, the environment around it, and its own tendencies or distortions. In other words, the unconscious mind helps the Magician to become more self-conscious as it interacts with the world around it. In all of these interactions there develops what Ra called catalyst which is Arcanum Number 3, the Catalyst of the Mind, also known as the Empress.

The name of Empress for the Catalyst of the Mind comes from the fact that it is the first portion of the unconscious mind that the Magician uses, or ennobles, as it attempts to process the catalyst that is biased by the High Priestess and utilized in some degree by the conscious mind. However, the free will of each of us, and our imperfect notice or apprehension of catalyst, causes the resulting experience to be skewed or distorted in some degree. Card Number 3 shows the Empress seated on a square block that is colored more black than white which suggests that the catalyst that we work with more often seems to be of a negative, or service-to-self nature, and this perception comes from our unconscious mind. As the conscious mind processes the catalyst the final experience may be positive or negative, depending the conscious mind’s tendency to choose positive or negative interpretations of catalyst and these choices are stored in Arcanum Number 4, The Experience of the Mind, or the Emperor.

The Experience of the Mind, again, implies that it is a noble effort that is made when the conscious mind, the Magician, processes catalyst by using the vast resources of the unconscious mind. It is also a feature of the Emperor that if the Magician is able to perceive the biases of the High Priestess, its unconscious mind, and make positive interpretations of its catalyst that correspond to its pre-incarnative choices, that it will be more likely to use its catalyst in a positive sense if it is upon the positive path and negative choices if it is on the negative path. As the positive entity continues to see the positive potential in all catalyst—no matter how cruel or catastrophic—the light of the Creator shines about it a kind of protection on its spiritual journey. The negative path, however, does not have such a protection as the negative entity seeks to protect itself by its own efforts of separation from and control over others.  The image of the Experience of the Mind, the Emperor, has its coloration of black and white in greater definition which is the symbolic representation of the Choice of either positive or negative polarization. The legs of the Emperor form a right angle which symbolizes this transformation in consciousness that comes from the purity of following whichever path is chosen. The interaction between the Magician, the High Priestess, the Empress, and the Emperor creates the nature of the being which is exemplified in Card Number 5, the Significator of the Mind, or the Hierophant.

The Hierophant represents the very heart of the mind complex, a dynamic entity which absorbs experience and attempts to learn. So the Significator of the Mind is like unto an actor upon the stage that is both busy learning how to polarize its consciousness either positively or negatively and is also acted upon by the interaction of the Magician, the High Priestess, the Empress, and the Emperor. And here is where the Significator of the Mind is dependent upon the body complex so that it may use the mouth of the body to speak and the legs of the body to carry it about as it interacts with others around it. This inability of the Hierophant to move around without the use of the body is symbolized by Card Number 5 having the Hierophant trapped within the rectangle and there being no legs showing on the image. There is a set of wings at the top of Card Number 5 that Ra said represented a covenant with the spirit that draws the Hierophant onward towards transformation, or Card Number 6, the Transformation of the Mind, which is also known as the Lovers or the Two Paths. These two paths are the service-to-others path and the service-to-self path.

The Transformation of the Mind has a number of right angles in the image of Card Number 6. Each signifies a potential for transformation occurring along either the right hand path or the left hand path, towards positive polarity or negative polarity. There are females on each side of the adept, the one on the male’s right is fully clothed and represents the deep mind, the High Priestess, who is the maiden that the adept or Magician courts in a careful and loving way over the period of the lifetime. The other female, on the male entity’s left represents a badly used or prostituted female whose resources the negative entity takes for itself. The negative entity actually plunders a portion of its own resources of the High Priestess, or unconscious mind, and gains very little that is of value as a result of its brutal plundering. So the adept, or the Magician, must make a Choice of positive or negative polarity by dropping the hand of the female that does not reflect this choice. Thus is the Magician transformed by its own choosing of one polarity over the other for the remainder of the incarnation. As this Choice is made more and more purely the adept or Magician invokes Card Number 7, the Great Way of the Mind, also known as the Chariot.

The Great Way of the Mind, or the Chariot, represents the environment within which the work of the mind, body, or spirit is accomplished. In the image of Card Number 7 the veil of forgetting is lifted more on the image’s right side than on its left side suggesting that the positive polarity has more success at accessing the unconscious mind than does the negative path. The negative path has a more limited viewpoint as it separates itself from all others whereas the positive path attempts to see through the seeming separation of the third-density illusion, sees the Creator with in all others, and seeks to interact with other-selves in order to be of service to them. This interaction is, as Ra said, “full of the stuff of your third-density illusion.” The Great Way of the Mind exemplifies the movement of the adept, or the Magician, from our space/time physical world into the time/space environment of the metaphysical world, which could also be seen as the graduation into the fourth density of love and understanding.

Arcanum Number 22 is The Choice, or the Fool. After the seeker of truth has used its catalyst in the areas of the mind, the body, and the spirit to polarize its consciousness either in the positive service-to-others sense, or in the negative service-to-self sense, then it has made the Choice as the means by which it will be graduated into the fourth density of love and understanding. The positive entity will need to be of service to others 51% of the time, and the negatively polarized entity will need to be of service to self 95% of the time. This Choice of polarity will be the foundation for the work of entities through the rest of the densities of evolution.

What I have attempted to do in providing this synopsis of the first seven cards of the Mind and then The Choice is to give you a taste of the nature and process of evolution that each of us is engaged in as conscious seekers of truth. As you study the more detailed descriptions of this process that Ra reveals you will be able to perceive a fuller image of the activity of each Card. You may then begin to identify those times in your life where you are engaged in expressing one facet or another of various of the Cards as you process your daily catalyst. At some point Ra suggested that we can become each Card at the appropriate times in our life pattern. This is advanced work but is possible for those who wish to pursue an in-depth study of the archetypical mind as Players on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life.

I would also like to let you know that our Russian translator of the Ra material, Sergei Danilov, has written a comprehensive book on all of the 22 Major Arcana of the Egyptian tarot using the information from Ra and also from other sources, and when it is published I will let you know about it.

This afternoon I used my hedge clippers to trim back the perennial giant hibiscus stalks to about six inches, and then I put them in one garbage can. Then I used my hedge clippers to trim back the three plantings of tall grasses that have died over the winter and put them in two garbage cans. I also raked up more small tree limbs around the flower garden in the center of the Moss Garden and put them in the garbage cans that contained the tall grasses.

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

March 9

Rejoice And Be Glad

I am the living spirit of the consciousness of love. I greet you in the light and love of Jesus the Christ.

Rejoice today, my people! Rejoice and be glad! Open the eyes of the heart to gaze about creation and see the streams of glory which shower the Earth with the bounty of sun and rain.

Rejoice as do the happy trees, the laughing mountains, and the rolling seas, chuckling in unified pleasure at the warm, quick wind of the Creator’s love.

Rejoice in all of creation to the bounds of your telescopes and your imagination, your microscopes and your greatest and most awful discoveries.

Feel an intimate joy in each intricate beauty that the Creator has offered, for this creation is yours as you are Christ’s. Know and see that all things are instinct with love, alive with the spirit. And in every transformation see the powerful hand of the Holy One.

May you set apart your lives in peace to the glory of God, 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.
