I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from February 15, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each of you again through this instrument in love and in light. It is our privilege at this time to open this meeting to queries which those gathered may have brought for the asking. May we begin with a query at this time?

J: Is the basic denial that exists on this plane, is that basically just the denial that we are God and that our own will is one and the same with the will of God? Is that the basic denial that’s kept us separated from the one God all this time?

I am Q’uo, and we find that the query which you have asked is one which covers a great deal of territory and experience within your illusion. If we may look upon the population of your planet’s third-density illusion, we see that the great veil of forgetting which separates the conscious from the unconscious mind is that which effectively brings about a condition which you may in your terminology call a denial of sight. This sight is that which is most inward and outward seeking for the nature of the creation in which [an] entity finds itself.

If we are to look upon the primary means of perceiving the creation and its meaning for those of your third density, we might take that denial of which you have spoken and describe it rather as the inability to perceive the unity of all the creation, the infinity which is the foundation, the current reality and what you would call a future experience for all those of the third-density illusion. Thus, this inability to see the connected nature of all things, all thoughts, is a denial which, indeed, allows an entity to consider itself separate from and outside the influence of that power which you call God or the Creator. This seeming separation or denial or lack of perception creates a condition in which an entity may learn a variety of lessons which will eventually provide an opportunity for the integrating of each individual lesson with the wholeness of not only the Greater Self, which resides beyond the veil of forgetting, but the selves of all creatures and things about one in the creation and indeed with the Creator Itself.

Thus, the perception is limited, in order that work might be done within limited boundaries that would not be possible should the boundaries not exist and the sight penetrate infinity and thus make the experiment of limitations that which is obvious to those who see with far-seeing eyes. With the impossibility of such limitation there is also the lack of opportunity for the experience of the Creator in an individualized form. This individualized form is that which each third density takes up in order that there might be a greater experience and glorification provided for the one Creator through each individual.

J asked if the basic denial on Earth was people’s inability to realize that we are all God, and that our will is also one with God’s will, and has this basic denial kept us separate from God? Q’uo began their answer by saying that it is the veil of forgetting that keeps us from seeing that we are one with the entire creation of all things and creatures. Moreover, this basic denial gives entities the opportunity to learn a variety of lessons that will help them to integrate each lesson with the wholeness of the Creator and all of the creation which exists beyond the veil of forgetting. Thusly is the Creator glorified by each entity’s experience helping the Creator to know Itself. On September 18, 2019, Q’uo described how the veil of forgetting works to help us grow spiritually:

The third-density experience, as you are well aware, is not one of understanding, for there is the veil of forgetting that separates the conscious from the unconscious minds, and from the greater nature of reality that is the true reality in which we live and move and have our being. However, within the third-density experience, this veil of forgetting makes it impossible to know or understand for sure what will be the product or the result of one’s efforts in service to others. What one can know is one’s intention, one’s desire, the strength of the desire to be of service, to be a loving entity, and to seek the One Creator within each experience, is that which will lead one forward upon the path of service to others, and increase the positive polarity according to the strength of the will and intention to serve.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: No, that was excellent, Thank you.

I am Q’uo. We thank you, my brother. Is there another query?

H: Yeah, I have one thing, one ideal on this thing, and that is this. If we entertain thoughts of this mark as such and all that, would that actually prevent or hold us from being fourth-density material? I assume that this is right, if we continue to entertain bad thoughts or evil thoughts rather than positive thoughts. Is this right?

I am Q’uo, and, my brother, though there is the tendency towards correctness in your supposition, the simplicity of its statement is that which we would hesitate in accepting as correct, for it is indeed true that the focus of one’s attention determines where one shall find the opportunity for lessons and services. The focus of one’s attention, in a general context, if it rests upon the appearance of things, is destined to move from that which seems separate and perhaps threatening to yet another portion of experience that seems separate from the self and perhaps again threatening to the self, for all the creation about one within your illusion seems to be quite removed from the individual experience without cohesion, without rhythm, and without harmony.

Yet, if one directs the attention and the desire to known the nature of things beyond the exterior appearance of things and begins to move into the heart of all things and thought and activity, one may with such a focused attention begin to harmonize the individual perception of each portion of the creation which surrounds one, thus bringing into a coherent pattern various portions of the creation which with renewed dedication of seeking begin to fit as one part of a puzzle fitting into another and another and another, so that the creation one [perceives] begins to take on a form and a feeling and a purpose, and an experience of unity becomes more and more possible for such a seeker and such a focused point of viewing the creation about it.

Thus, my brother, when looking upon any portion of the creation which surrounds one, it is well to note not only the exterior appearance and action of things, events and peoples, but to begin to move beyond those appearances within one’s thinking and perceiving so that the common features and feelings and rhythms and tones may become apparent as well and as layer upon layer of meaning is discovered, the simplicity and unity of all portions of the creation become more apparent to one who seeks in this manner.

And thus, as the unified nature of the creation becomes apparent to such an entity, and the entity begins to move in harmony with the power, the creative power of Love which is found to move all things, then one more and more readies the self for the graduation, as you have called it, into that density of love and understanding where the veils are removed and the Creator more clearly stands before the entity in all experience.

H asked if we entertain evil thoughts, would this keep us from graduating into the fourth density. Q’uo replied by saying that H was somewhat correct, but it was more correct to realize that the seeming separation which is the nature of the illusion and evil thoughts may be experienced as threatening to the self. Nevertheless, if one focuses the attention and desire beyond the appearance of separation and moves instead into the harmonizing of one’s perception of the variety of experiences and begins to create a coherent pattern of the puzzle pieces of life, one can begin to experience the unity of creation. Then we begin to move in harmony with the creative power of Love, and we see the Creator all around us. On April 29, 1984, Hatonn described the process by which we can begin to experience the unity of creation:

Further, it is likely that you as your great Self, hope that in this incarnational experience you not only find transparency in the illusion and begin to read the daily experience, but also you begin to act in accordance with your understanding. Please understand, the fruits of the work of the seeker are secondary to the original intention of grasping the truth, however, one who seeks and begins to find the truth then finds that unless that which is learned is now manifested, further learning will be slow, and the lessons will seem to repeat themselves. The process is from opacity of experience to transparency of experience, and with your feet planted firmly in the Kingdom of Heaven, moving back into the world of illusion with eyes which see, ears that hear, hearts that understand, hands that can reach without reserve in service to others.

May we speak further, my brother?

H: No, that was very well explained. I have a much better feel for it now. I appreciate it and I thank you.

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

Questioner: I have a question in reference to the number six, pertaining to numerology as in a person’s name. If there is an absence of six, is this significant? And if so, in what way?

I am Q’uo, and we are not completely sure if our grasp of your query is sufficient Please requery if our response is not sufficient. The numbering that is apparent within any entity’s naming or date of birth is a symbol which opens, shall we say, the road map in a certain area of the entity’s life to the entity’s viewing in order that perhaps the wide and narrow portions of the road might be seen and given appropriate attention. Whether one or another number is present or missing is a portion of the entity’s roadmap, the presence or absence of which adds or subtracts certain characteristics or possibilities for that entity. Thus, the numerological understanding of an entity’s significant nature provides the symbolic form that the entity has chosen in order to express certain characteristics and to allow opportunities for certain lessons within a certain incarnation.

The Questioner asked about numerology and what it meant if there was no six in a person’s name. Q’uo replied that the presence or absence of certain numbers in a person’s name reflects pre-incarnative choices which show the nature of the life’s roadmap where there may or may not be certain opportunities for learning and service to others. On August 2, 1979, Hatonn described the value of numerology in general:

Perhaps the best use of astrology and many of the other disciplines, such as tarot, numerology, and the others, is as a focusing point, shall we say, for the psychic power of the individual. It may be quite small to begin with, but by working through this particular system, your own power of intuition begins to develop, and you see more than what is in the stars or in the cards or in the numbers, and you see better.

May we speak further, my sister?

Questioner: I think that answers it. Thank you.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my sister. Is there another query?

Carla: Well, if everybody’s all finished, I did have one. Q’uo, I wonder if you could help me in my teaching. I suspect one of my students, a girl named W, of having an entity present. I’ve challenged the entity, it seems to be a positively-oriented entity. It’s not of the Confederation and I can’t get its name, but I expect W could. Now, can I help this channel to develop in such a way that the entity has the best chance of making a good, safe, positive contact with this entity, which seems to be a helpful entity, without setting her up for it? You don’t have to tell me how to do it without setting it up for it, if that’s something I have to figure out, but any tips that you could give me on how to work with this situation would be helpful because I haven’t run into it before.

I am Q’uo, and with this query we find that we must step carefully in order that we do not cross the line of free will choices which is reserved in a sacred fashion for each seeker to move within itself. The entity of which you speak, the one known as W, has as you have surmised both the ability to serve as a vocal instrument in a pronounced fashion and the opportunity to do so in a manner which is moving towards its appropriate expression. As to your role in this process…

[Side one of tape ends.]

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and am again with this instrument. We can only reaffirm, my sister, those techniques which you have utilized in a successful fashion in previous teachings, combined with the greater reliance upon the intuition which we find that you have also exercised in the recent meditation sessions with this entity.

This is an opportunity not only for this new student to learn its service, but also is an opportunity for the teacher to expand the abilities in the teaching. The techniques are familiar to you. The reliance upon the intuition is that which is newer in your experience and that which we might suggest holds the greater opportunity at this time for your service, not only to this particular new instrument, but in your service as a teacher of the vocal channeling service as well.

Carla asked about an unseen entity within a woman that she was helping learn how to channel. It was not a Confederation entity but seemed positively oriented. She wanted to know how to help the young woman channel this entity without “setting her up for it.” Q’uo said they wished to serve in this situation without infringing on anyone’s free will. Q’uo suggested that the young woman had the ability to serve as a channel, and also recommended that Carla use her normal process of teaching students how to channel plus utilize her own intuition as to how this entity might be able to be channeled by the young woman. Thus this would be a learning process for both Carla and the young woman. On May 18, 1986, L/Leema described how the intuition can work with the conscious mind to give us help in making decisions:

You are consciousness, and that consciousness creates. It has created this moment for you by the work it has done in the past. It will create what you call your future as the work that you are doing at this moment comes into manifestation. The tool of intuition is one which may be applied by the remembering and recording of your dreams and visions, by the listening to what this instrument would call the still small voice, the voice that says, “This is good; this is not so good. This feels right; this does not feel right.” An intuitive person often has no verbalized reason for these feelings. It is always well to recognize them and give them respect. It is also well to use the tool of the intellect insofar as that skill is a portion of your native character, for the intellect can analyze dreams and visions, can examine thoughts and find from them the harvest of love therein, can temper the feelings of “should” and “could” and “yes” and “no” with sometimes an encouraging and sometimes a cautionary analysis of those intuitions. Many a baseless fear has been removed because of the work of the analytical portion of the mind.

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: I’m going to read over what you said, but I believe I understand. Thanks a lot.

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

Carla: I have just one question that I’ve always wondered about and never had a satisfactory answer to. Why is everybody so fascinated with the mark of the beast? I mean, people are, anywhere in this culture. People from all different Christian and non-Christian viewpoints, very extreme, are actually interested in that.

I am Q’uo, and, my sister, we find that the simplicity of the query moved into an area which is not as simple to provide an answer for. The feeling for power and the ability to affect events and people is that which fascinates many of your population. Your population exists within an illusion in which many individual entities move and participate in the rituals of gathering wealth, position, respect and power of various kinds. It seems to many of your population that the gathering of power in whatever form and for whatever reason is an activity in which all wish to excel in some manner, whether the power be social, financial, religious or spiritual or simply the power over entities in one’s own family or neighborhood. There is the feeling within many of your population that in some way, greater and greater power may be had by those who know certain secrets that will reveal unto them procedures or techniques for gathering such power unto themselves.

Many see the power of well known figures, or the power that is spoken of in many of your holy works, and make connections between the events of your world and the events that seem to be quite beyond the mundane experience. It is felt by many that the life which is lived upon this planetary sphere is a life which prepares one for a greater life that shall become apparent when the Earthly life is finished. And yet, the power-filled nature of the creation and those who move within it continues to fascinate many who wish to feel not just a glimpse, shall we say, of such power, but wish to partake fully in it themselves. Thus, when speakings of greater and greater powers are heard, entities begin to connect these speakings with the feelings that such powers are available only to a few who have certain secrets revealed unto them.

Thus, the concept of the dark force that is embodied within speakings of the beast, as it is called, bring not only to the conscious mind images of the very nature of creation itself, but draw through the subconscious mind the faintly remembered connection that each entity has with the entire creative power of love of the one Creator. The experience within your illusion for each entity is one in which there is in some form the attempt to reconcile the powers of light and the powers of darkness in order that a unified perception of all the creation might be achieved. The darker expressions of power, being by their very nature secret and separate, seem more fascinating than the obvious brilliance and power of light manifested as love, and through such mysterious and secret fascination attract the attention of many, such as the latest gossip attracts the attention of those who speak over the backyard fence, shall we say.

We apologize for the difficulty we have had in transmitting these concepts through this instrument, but we find that this instrument’s mind is somewhat furnished with information which prejudges that which we have to offer, and we have not been overly successful, shall we say, in providing a response to your query which we felt was possible. May we speak in any further fashion, my sister?

Now Carla asked why people of all religions around the world were so fascinated with the mark of the beast. Q’uo began their answer by saying that within this third-density illusion most people feel that the gaining of power of one kind or another is the reason for their existence. Q’uo continued by saying that the average person is aware of people who have one form of power or another and many conjectures as to how this power was gained. Each person is also subconsciously aware of the great power of the one Creator within them, and when all this is put together with hearing that dark forces and the mark of the beast are ways in which power may be obtained, each person is then faced with blending the light and dark forces into a unified perception of the nature of the creation. On March 10, 1996, Q’uo described the source of light and dark forces:

As we take our leave of you we encourage each to feel that balance point within which holds all the illusion of light and dark in calm and peaceful equilibrium. Third density, and fourth as well, move deeply within the ways of polarity and duality. There are many lessons the dark and light alike can teach. We ask each to rest in the essential and eternal goodness of that foundation which is the one infinite Creator. Light and dark alike find their source and ending in love.

Carla: No, I think you’re giving yourself a hard time. I was fascinated with that. Thank you very much.

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


I am Q’uo, and we wish to thank once again each present for inviting our presence in your circle of seeking this evening. We are greatly honored to be asked to speak our humble words to a group of seekers which is as faithful as those gathered here this evening. We wish to remind each that we offer but our opinions which are fallible and filled with error. Do not hesitate to leave those behind which do not ring true.

At this time we shall take our leave of this group, thanking each once again for allowing us to join you. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. As always, we leave each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai vasu borragus.

(Carla channeling)

I am Nona. I [intoned single tone held on vowel sound “I.”] greet you in the love and in the light of the One Who is All. I [musical tone on two notes] wish each of you to join with us in mind as we sing healing tones, for there is the need within this group at this time.

[Healing melody channeled through Carla.]

Nona was an entity that Carla channeled from time to time when someone in the group had a need for being healed. Nona did most of her healing through singing healing tones.

This morning I decided to use my backpack blower to blow the leaves in the yard into position so that I could use my big mower to mulch them as well as to cut the grass. It has been too dry lately to consider doing this, but we got half an inch of much-needed rain yesterday evening, which has made this possible. Then I used my trimmer to trim the weeds from the Moss Garden.

This afternoon I used my big mower to mulch all the leaves and cut the grass as well. Then I ran a couple of errands with my first stop being Nothing Bundt Cakes to buy a snickerdoodle cake to take with me when I go to visit Connie in the care home in Southern Indiana this Saturday. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. When I got home I went back outside and used my trimmer to trim the weeds from the Ruins Mound.

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

September 13

The Powers Of Death

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ which speaks to the world today. I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

The powers of death have held great sway over the minds of your peoples in all times, for it is to the powers of death that all that which is negative tends. Yet all the sighs and sorrows in reaction to the experiences of the day guide one ever so subtly away from vitality and towards distraction and distress.

There is no need for the powers of death to have hold upon your mind and your heart. For even where there is perceived an unquestionable catastrophe, yet at the same time the softening voice of spirit speaks to those who listen.

We ask you to tap into this source of peace and life, for there is abundant life in any circumstance, insofar as the will and faith of the struggling seeker may open the inner eye and reach the inner hand to the spirit of truth within.

We leave you in the ineffable peace and love of Jesus the Christ, 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.
