I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from January 25, 1987:
I am Q’uo, and we are pleased to greet you again in love and light through this instrument. At this time it is our privilege to offer ourselves in the service of attempting to respond to any further queries which those gathered may have value in the asking. We remind each that we offer but our opinions and ask that these be taken as such. May we begin with a query?
Carla: What would you say to someone who is having physical difficulties that make it kinda hard to get around and feel some despair over the future? Besides “don’t do that”?
I am Q’uo, and we are aware, my sister, that this question has special meaning to your own experience. And we would suggest that it be remembered at all times that one moves within the limitless love of the Creator within this illusion in order that through your experience the Creator might become aware of the possibilities for love to be placed in situations that will require an increased experience of Itself in order to uncover that love which has been carefully hidden. Thus does the Creator find Its beingness expressed in your experience in manners vivid and pure as a result of the constant effort to uncover Its own face through your efforts.
Thus does the Creator move within the tiniest, the grandest, the most joyful and the most difficult of circumstances in order to enable each seeker at every portion of its journey to both become aware of the ever-present sustenance of the love of the Creator when appropriate and also to find those times within the experience of an incarnation when the price, shall we say, for such joyful discovery is far greater in order that that discovery might be imbedded more deeply and securely within the seeker’s total being. Thus, one may see a relationship evolve in which the more difficult seeking provides the opportunity for the more deeply experienced and securely seated revelation of love and unity which ever underlie all experience. Thus, that which is cheaply bought is easily forgotten; that which bears the greater price is that which remains as sure foundation stones upon further experience and service of the One is possible.
Carla asked Q’uo what they would have to say to a person who had physical difficulties that made getting around difficult and hopes for the future diminished. I have a hunch she was talking about herself as she had constant pain from rheumatoid arthritis for most of her life. Basically, Q’uo said that Carla’s experience of pain was another way for the Creator to know more about Itself, and in that way Carla was serving the Creator. On October 15, 1991, Q’uo described a multitude of ways that an entity may serve the Creator:
Each of you is a portion of the infinite Creator. Each of you is precisely equal—the murderer, the rapist, the saint, and the fool. For each of you has the entire constellation of possibilities within, and it has been with each a matter of choice after choice after choice as to how to live the life, how to serve the Creator, how to practice the presence of the Creator, and how to serve others, perhaps the most difficult question of all.
May we speak further, my sister?
Carla: No. Thank you very much, Q’uo.
I am Q’uo. We thank you, my sister. Might there be another query?
H: Yeah, I have something I’ve been thinking about for a few months now. In our Bible, it’s got in the last days that there will be the final conflict or the final war, the war of all wars. And after that it said there’ll be something like a thousand years of peace. Could you elaborate on that statement?
I am Q’uo, and within this work of which you speak, we find the beginning recognition of the quality of existence that shall fall unto those who remain within the loving guidance, shall we say, of the free and joyful expression of love, one for another. Those who shall find their own experience producing the fruit of love and compassion shall enter upon a journey which, within the work you have described, was able to be perceived as the thousand years of peace.
Yet in truth, my brother, we might suggest that this time has no such shortened boundaries, but refers to a level of existence in which the love of the Creator becomes ever more apparent and powerful within the personal incarnation and is seen without doubt to be that which undergirds all creation and experience within the creation. Each entity within this level of experience shall find that the doors of perception are swung wide until the heart is filled full of the creative and compassionate energy of the Creator and is given freely to those about one in a fashion which knows no boundaries and is the result of the simple beingness and natural expression of that beingness for each seeker.
H asked Q’uo to elaborate on a statement in the Bible that in the last days there will be the war of all wars, and then there would be a thousand years of peace. Q’uo didn’t actually speak of a “war to end all wars” but said that the “quality of existence that shall fall unto those who remain within the loving guidance, shall we say, of the free and joyful expression of love, one for another.” Q’uo said that this experience of love would not have a limit of time but could be described as the thousand years of peace. On September 5, 2010, Hatonn spoke of this thousand years of peace:
From our perspective, which is limited, we would suggest that the “one-thousand-year time period” is symbolic of a beginning experience of peace within the human heart that will be infinite in its nature, so that it is a steady state, no longer subject to what you may call the trials and tribulations of the choice-making density, the path having been chosen, the feet firmly planted thereupon, and the will strengthened to persevere. The journey shall be undertaken in strength of purpose in joyful, glad tidings of the heart.
May we speak further, my brother?
H: No, that answers that quite well. I just have one more comment on the same statement. Would the seventy-five thousand year cycle actually end upon the end of this era, then?
I am Q’uo, and this is correct, my brother, for the cycle which is now reaching its culmination upon your planetary sphere has provided the opportunity for those within its boundaries to move the conscious perception of the creation far enough to allow a greater experience to follow. The ability of each seeker within your illusion has been developed to the point during its seventy-five thousand year cycle where it is now possible for each seeker to welcome and enjoy the greater intensity of light that shall be presented within the fourth-density experience.
Then H asked if the third-density cycle of 75,000 years would end at the same time as this thousand years of peace. Q’uo suggested that this was possible since each seeker of truth would have evolved far enough on their spiritual path to be able to enjoy the fourth-density vibrations of light. I believe that Q’uo is talking about those seekers who have made the Choice of service to others and not those third-density entities who are in what Ra called the sinkhole of indifference. In 17.31, Ra gave the requirements for harvest into the fourth density:
Questioner: In the book Oahspe it states that if an individual is more than fifty percent for others— that is, goes over the 50% service to others, and is less than fifty percent for service to self, then he is harvestable. Is this a correct statement?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct if the harvesting is to be for the positive fourth dimensional level.
May we speak further, my brother?
H: No, I think that took care of that. Thank you.
Carla: Okay, one last one for me. I wondered if you could comment on just what the spiritual impact of Shirley MacLaine’s TV special was on the consciousness of this planet?
I am Q’uo. And we look upon the event of which you speak as that which is likened unto a great and shining light in a sea of darkness. Yet, if one perceives carefully this sea of darkness, one begins to note many lights flickering in various portions of the darkness. Each light burns of an intensity which each seeker has produced according to the desire to know that which you know as the truth. Events such as the airing of the program of which you speak are seen within the metaphysical realm as a great and shining light which for a brief period of your experience illuminates the darkness to the extent where all inhabiting that darkness are able for that moment to perceive carefully outlined shadows of truth. In this momentary perception and possibility for perception, the light which burns either dimly or brightly within all who inhabit your illusion finds a greater intensity possible for that moment that may, if empowered with personal desire to continue the seeking, allow the light to burn more brightly after the event has passed.
Many there are who find within the incarnation for the first time the opportunity to experience the birthing of desire to know what lies beyond the boundaries of previous perceptions. Many others who have felt this yearning begin are reinforced in their seeking to move their own consciousness beyond their self-made limitations of perceptions. Others who have yet to discover the desire to move beyond such boundaries consider for a moment that such might be possible, and though the thought passes quickly, each shall within the deeper being remember that moment in order that the momentary interest which was experienced might, at what you would call a future date, find another potential for birthing. And when enough of these opportunities have been noticed by the entity, there may in that entity be born that same desire to know the truth, and the light of that entity then will begin to glow ever more brighter, fed in even a small part by each experience which has been provided the entity within its incarnation to spark the beginning yearnings to know the meaning of the incarnation and of experiences such as the program of which you speak.
Thus, there can only be greater light result from light which is freely given. Its work moves at its own pace as is appropriate within each seeker’s incarnation. When the student is ready the teacher, in whatever form, appears, be it a book, a person, a television program or experience within the daily round of activities.
Carla asked what the impact on the planet was as a result of Shirley MacLaine’s TV special which was shown in 1987 and was titled “Out on a Limb,” which referred to her spiritual awakening. Q’uo began their response by saying that the program was as a light in the darkness that was able to aid others seekers of truth and help their lights to shine more brightly. Q’uo also said that this greater feeling of the purpose of the incarnation would also cause those who had not yet begun their spiritual journeys to consider doing so after viewing the light of Shirley MacLaine’s television special. In 1.10, Ra gave the general principle of how sharing one’s light aids everyone:
The few whom you will illuminate by sharing your light are far more than enough reason for the greatest possible effort. To serve one is to serve all.
Therefore, we offer the question back to you to state that indeed it is the only activity worth doing: to learn/teach or teach/learn. There is nothing else which is of aid in demonstrating the Original Thought except your very being, and the distortions that come from the unexplained, inarticulate, or mystery-clad being are many. Thus, to attempt to discern and weave your way through as many group mind/body/spirit distortions as possible among your peoples in the course of your teaching is a very good effort to make. We can speak no more valiantly of your desire to serve.
May we speak further, my sister?
Carla: No, thank you.
I am Q’uo. We thank you.
H: I have one more question concerning Shirley MacLaine, about the gentleman named David. Did he ever have contact with Maya again, what he was so much seeking?
I am Q’uo, and am again with this instrument. We find that this entity has experienced the presence of the one of whom you speak in a fashion which is not the person-to-person physical vehicle contact, but which is that more of the nature now being expressed as we communicate our thoughts through this instrument. The entity, David, has satisfied itself that this is the most desirable form of contact for this time within its incarnational pattern. However, we cannot speak as to the future as you call it, for this [we] see as an infringement upon free will.
May we speak further, my brother?
H: No, thank you, that’s all.
I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my brother. Is there another query at this time?
I am Q’uo, and we thank each for allowing our presence this evening. We have been very honored to be able to join this group and to respond to those queries which have been placed before us with loving care. We ask that if our presence be desired in your meditations that a simple request will find us joining you there. We shall leave this group at this time, rejoicing and giving praise that we are able to join you on your journey of seeking. We leave each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai, my friends. Adonai vasu borragus.
This morning I got the chairs in the living room in place for the attendees of our first public channeling meditation for the new season. Then I ran some errands with my first stop being at the bank to make a cash withdrawal. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself.
This afternoon we had our public channeling meditation which began at 1 pm. It was good to see some old friends and some new ones as well. There were so many synchronicities experienced as we talked on our round robin to get our meeting started. As each person talked about what spiritual experiences they had in the last few days, weeks, or months we found that we had so much in common in the most expected of ways. The questions that were asked also were of the very highest quality, and I thought that Q’uo’s answers were very helpful as well.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
Each Is Your Brother
I am the spirit of the living Christ which speaks to the world this day, greeting you in the full consciousness of divine love.
The many preparatory and studious engagements of those serious, spiritual seekers who labor to learn the love of the Christ are well meant and may yet yield fruit. Yet, paradoxically, it is not the one always who strives the hardest, thinks the most or works more laboriously than others to whom the inspiration, the love, and the clarity of vision that infinite love offers, comes.
Many times it is the one who is unassuming and humble, who accepts the basic unworthiness of free will while recognizing the necessity of it, who may choose and choose and choose again the way of love, the way of the Christ.
Therefore stride self-confidently into the world but be ye humble and not over-assuming, for each entity is likewise the Father within, just as you are. Each is your brother. Each is your sister. None contains that which you do not contain. Sometimes it is possible to try too hard to be loving and blessed, sanctified and giving. Relax into the rhythm of spontaneous service and life shall become merry and light.
We leave you in love and 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.
