I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from February 8, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and light through this instrument. We would at this time be honored to respond to those queries which those present may have for us. May we begin with a query?

J: Is it not true that before our incarnation into this life that we choose our own death, and it could be the case that we would use cancer or some other illness as the means of our death?

I am Q’uo, and we might suggest, my brother, that there are correctnesses and incorrectnesses in the assumptions which you have made. We shall attempt to speak to this topic. It is true that those who are aware of the process of incarnation and its purpose, due to a conscious discovery of this incarnative process during an incarnation, take a more complete role in the planning of the incarnation which is to come before the incarnation. The framework for attempting certain lessons that will enrich an entity as a whole is determined as are those services which might be shared as fruit of the effort of learning with others. There are many possibilities for each incarnation in these two general realms of endeavor, that of learning and that of serving.

Because free will is paramount within the incarnation, and indeed before, the planning must take a general form with many potential specific aspects, be they events or entities, programmed, shall we say, as possibilities and perhaps even probabilities. Many are dependent upon other choices and agreements made between entities for various times and purposes, thus there is much that is fluid and flexible, shall we say, within any incarnation that will allow for the learning of the lessons and the offering of the services.

That graduation, shall we say, from the incarnation that is called the death, in many instances is the subject of just such planning, which is to say, there is a variety of possibilities for each entity that may occur according to the completing of the overall plan for the incarnation in a more or less successful fashion. It may be said that the lessons shall continue for any entity within an incarnation until their weight grows too heavy, at which time the entity shall have planned for one means of bringing the incarnation to its culmination.

This general means of ending the incarnation may be seen as a continuing effort to gain in the polarization in consciousness which has been chosen, thus when an entity is more successful, shall we say, in the overall plan and has achieved much of that which was laid out before the incarnation, it may be that one or more potential death, as you call them, experiences are presented to the entity who by its efficiency in continuing to utilize the catalyst may yet continue within the incarnation by successfully utilizing the catalyst which could have brought about that termination of the incarnation called death.

However, it may be that an entity finds some difficulty within some portion of the incarnation, perhaps through attempting to learn too rapidly certain lessons, and may take advantage of an earlier potential terminating of the incarnation through specifically planned catalyst which when unsuccessfully processed, may result in that which you call a disease and which then might end the incarnation. Each disease, as you call them, is a symbolic representation for a certain entity or perhaps a grouping of entities, of a certain kind of lesson, thus the ending of the incarnation shall come for each within your third-density illusion. Yet the ending is not necessarily that which has been chosen to unfold in one fashion only and one time only and by one means only, yet may be that which is possible after a certain point and may be possible in a continuing fashion according to the entity’s ability to continue to process the catalyst which it has provided for itself within the incarnation.

J asked if it was possible that before our incarnations that we choose our form of death and that cancer or some other illness may become our way to die. Q’uo suggested that there was some validity to what J had stated, but since free will for all entities is always paramount that there could be many ways that one might end the incarnation. Q’uo said that when an entity became consciously aware of the incarnative process during an incarnation then it could take part in the planning of how the incarnation would unfold and also how it would end. Q’uo added that many entities make agreements with others as to how their lessons would be learned and their services offered together. As for the ending of the incarnation Q’uo suggested various possibilities such as the pre-incarnative lessons becoming too heavy so that an earlier death would be possible, or if the learning of the pre-incarnative lessons and polarization in consciousness has been achieved, that more lessons or catalyst may be undertaken and the incarnation thereby lengthened. In 71.6, Ra spoke of how an entity may eventually take part in the planning of its incarnations:

This is done entirely by the higher self until an entity has become conscious in space/time of the process and means of spiritual evolution at which time the entity will consciously take part in all decisions.

And in 106.4, Ra spoke of how Carla had pre-incarnatively planned to leave her incarnation in a natural way, which she eventually did, and then said that another time she did leave the incarnation which was also pre-incarnatively planned. (This was when she was 12 years old and had a NDE):

Questioner: How serious and critical is this renal problem? Is drinking liquids (I assume water is the best) the only thing we can do for that, or is there something else?

Ra: I am Ra. Note the interrelationship of mind and body complexes. This is one example of such interweaving of the design of catalyst and experience. The period of renal delicacy is serious, but only potentially. Should the instrument desire to leave this incarnational experience the natural and non-energized opportunity to do so has been in-built just as the period during which the same entity did, in fact, leave the incarnational experience and then return by choice was inlaid.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: Thank you for that answer. Why is it that some cultures on this planet are virtually [free] of the disease known as cancer?

I am Q’uo, and we find that this disease is one which is late to join the experience of your peoples upon this planetary sphere and, being of recent influence, has found its first roots within those cultures which are of a more individualized nature, shall we say. By this we mean that those entities which comprise the cultures which are most susceptible to utilizing this disease are those cultures in which the identity of the individual is more firmly fixed and exercised, so that the relationships which develop from such strongly characterized traits that form the personal identity are those relationships which partake less fully of cultural or tribal or primitive traditions and more fully of those situations in which emotional exercise, shall we say, is determined and amplified by individual choice. Thus, the difficulties, as you call them, which bring about the heated feelings of anger and the venting of that emotion in an uncontrolled fashion and the failure to heal those wounds which it brings about are those conditions which are most salubrious for the fostering of the condition which you call cancer.

Then J asked why some cultures on Earth are free of cancer. Q’uo replied by saying that cancer was a disease that has developed late in this planet’s evolution in cultures in which the more primitive group experience is replaced by very strongly expressed individual identities in an uncontrolled fashion which tends to bring about the feelings of anger and cause cancer. In 40.9, Ra mentioned that the vibration of the photon has recently increased in frequency and has caused thoughts to become things such as the thought of anger causing cancer:

Questioner: Has the vibration of the basic, of the photon, of all our particles increased in frequency already?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. It is this influence which has begun to cause thoughts to become things. As an example you may observe the thoughts of anger becoming those cells of the physical bodily complex going out of control to become what you call the cancer.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: No, that’s all the questions that I have for now. Thank you.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my brother. Is there another query at this time?

Carla: Thank you, no questions tonight, Q’uo. Nice to hear your voice.

I am Q’uo, and we are most grateful to those present for inviting our presence. We greatly enjoy the opportunity to join with this group and to speak our humble words and we hope that we have been able to provide some small insight into those mysteries which are so great a portion of the illusion in which you find yourselves moving ever onward in the seeking of the one Creator. We shall be with you in what you call your future and look forward to each such sharing. We shall leave this group at this time, rejoicing always in the unity of thought which binds each seeker of truth. We are known to you as those of Q’uo, and we leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai vasu borragus.

This morning I went outside and used the hose and watering wand to water the flowers along the parking area in front of the house. I also watered the hydrangea in front of the house and then set the sprinkler going in the Astilbe garden in the back corner of the yard. Then I finished painting the last part of the single car garage siding in white and touched up a few spots where I dripped the blue paint when I was painting the trim under the eaves yesterday. Then I ran some errands and picked up some food for myself at Paul’s Fruit Market. My second stop was to pick up a pizza at Hometown Pizza, and my last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I picked up a prescription for myself and some non-food items.

This afternoon I decided to paint the side door that leads into the single car part of the garage, and I also painted the lattice work under the bird feeder just outside of the living room window.

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

Mountains Of Smoke

Greetings in the love of Jesus the Christ. I am the consciousness and spirit of the Christ in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

You have many seeming difficulties which rise before you like mountains of smoke, seemingly dense and impenetrable and yet seemingly unable to be grasped. It is of no avail to struggle against these difficulties, for opposition strengthens illusion.

Rather neglect them by turning your attention to your Creator and the preserver of your life, offering praise and thanksgiving to the mystery which you behold.

When you turn again in this consciousness the mountains will be there no longer, and the straight plain will offer your path no hindrance.

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.
