I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from July 16, 1989:
I am Q’uo, and I greet each again in love and light. We are honored to offer ourselves at this time in the attempt to speak to any remaining queries which those present may have. Is there a query at this time?
Questioner: Are there ways to learn clearer communication for people who have trouble communicating?
I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. The easiest answer that we have for that query is simply to practice the communication. To be more to the point, it is well if one becomes familiar with what one feels in any particular situation so that one may have the deepest truth from which to offer the communication. It is also quite necessary that there be a certain level of trust developed between those who would seek clear communication, for the clarity of communication may reveal, in the same clear light, some indications or messages that may make one uncomfortable, and it is well that each in the relationship trust that there is no harm, shall we say, intended, that each is searching in virgin or new territory within the self and may be as perplexed as the other at what is found there.
It is well to enter into communication with the desire and the intention to speak that which is felt and that which is true for the self with the attitude that it is not the final answer and that it might become a stepping stone toward that which is desired, if the clear communication has uncovered that which, though not desired, is truly the case at that moment. Thus, the trust is the foundation stone between the two who seek clear communication. And upon that foundation stone of trust may be added the speaking of that which is truly felt as a portion of the communication that shall continue to reveal a balance and a harmony that can be found when the communication has been clear enough for long enough that the, shall we say, whole picture begins to be seen beyond the boundaries of what is felt and thought by the self, by each self.
Questioner wanted to learn how those who have trouble communicating could learn how to communicate better. Quo suggested that such a person might begin with determining what one really feels in any situation where communication is needed. Then they said that it would be helpful to make the one that is being communicated with feel safe so that both may be able to explore unknown territory together. Q’uo also recommended that one allow the communication to continue step by step without any dedication to a final answer. Then Q’uo said that after such communication continues clearly for the appropriate length of time that more of the whole picture of the topic of the communication could be seen by both parties. On January 2, 2000, Q’uo described what clear communication might look like:
For though the mind is quite useful in its ability to analyze experience and to chart a potential course of action, there is no efficiency greater than the spontaneous response of the heart that wells up from inside of one, for this tuning into one’s emotions in an honest manner, without desire or manipulation, is that which speaks to another heart most clearly. For though each of you is able to, shall we say, put a good face on a situation by using one’s intellect, this is only a stop-gap measure, for there is within each entity the sure knowledge of clear communication that is from one’s heart and this kind of communication speaks more clearly than any other. For it tears away that facade or barrier which keeps one heart from another. All hearts know pain. All hearts seek solace. When one becomes aware of another’s heart that is in pain then there is the greater likelihood that one will respond honestly with one’s own emotions, the doors having been opened by the first to do so.
Is there another query, my sister?
Questioner: Well, just the observation that from what you said it seems that in third density we have absolutely necessary suffering because of the fact that change is painful, and I was wondering what consolation, what boon/goal, what healing lies in place [inaudible] so that one is not so bruised, so that one has an ability to heal?
I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. The boon, as you have called it, is the positioning for creation of the self [by the self] through experience and may take the form of the concept which you know of as faith, for though the trail may be long and difficult, there must be the faith within the seeker that there is a reason for traveling the trail. The seeker may turn to those sources of inspiration that are found in your literature which record the voices of those seekers of your past who have traveled this same trail and left records that illustrate the reality of their faith and of faith that might be found by others of their kind on similar journeys. One may look to such sources for a kind of inspiration that speaks to a deeper portion of the self that is beyond the confinement of your narrow, walled illusion and which vibrates in recognition of the truth when it is heard by these voices who have traveled the same journey.
Thus, the inspiration of others may speak to that spark of the self that we have called the Christ Consciousness and in which the still, silent moments of reflection and contemplation and meditation and prayerful attention cause a feeling of purpose and goodness and direction to well up from within and bolster, shall we say, the faith that has been nurtured by much experience through each seeker.
Questioner said that in third density change is painful and they wondered what healing lies in place [ as faith ?] so one has the ability to heal. Q’uo said that the trail that each travels during the life is long and difficult, and one must have faith that there is a reason to continue to travel it. Q’uo also recommended reading inspirational spiritual literature would help to develop such faith that can speak to the Christ consciousness within us and give us a sense of purpose in our lives. On May 10, 1987, Q’uo confirmed the value of faith:
Thus, the qualities which you seek to nurture within your being, those of will and faith to persevere in the seeking of love, are those qualities which discipline the personality in a fashion which allows further seeking and further progress upon the journey of seeking. The process is largely unseen, and not dependent upon the outcome for particular effort or group of efforts within an incarnation that are designed by the seeker as its attempt to polarize in consciousness.
Is there another query, my sister?
Questioner: No, Q’uo, but I’d like to share with you a short hymn that I’ve been singing since I was a little girl, and I think it’s really what you are saying. It’s called “Temper My Spirit, Oh Lord.”
Temper my spirit, oh Lord. Keep it long in the fire. Make it one with the flame. Let us share but one upreaching desire.
Temper my spirit, oh Lord.
I am Q’uo, and we listen with joy at the resonance in our own hearts to those words of your hymn. We thank you, my sister. Is there another query at this time?
Questioner: How can a person know the difference between life situations which are a part of a general learning experience and negative life situations [which] come along that may be defined as a psychic greeting which appear to be an outward attack on a person, possibly as a result of their seeking and possibly as a result of changes they have brought about themselves as a result of seeking? That’s my question.
I am Q’uo, and aware of your query, my brother. We would suggest that there is, in fact and in function, no significant difference betwixt the situations which you describe, for each offers the opportunity to learn, one at a level we would describe as ordinary, or common, the other at a more intensified or magnified level of—we search for the correct word within this instrument’s mind—level of intensity is the closest which we may find. Each offers the same opportunity. The attention may be more focused by that experience which you have described, the psychic greeting, for the experience is more intensified, but though it has the component of those of the, shall we say, loyal opposition, the initial choice was your own, and you are thereby experiencing that which is yours in a more lucid or vivid fashion.
Is there a further query, my brother?
Questioner: So, just to get an understanding better, what you are saying is that we deal with each situation the same way without trying to make a differentiation of what it might be? Or do we have different ways of dealing with it depending which way we perceive it to be?
I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. We mean to suggest that there can be no psychic greeting component without your free will choice in an area which lies within your course of study, shall we say. There may be no obstacles placed in your path by those who are of the loyal opposition, as we have described it, but those entities may magnify those experiences which you utilize, though we must at this time suggest that this phenomenon is far more unusual than most entities would imagine, for most of the entities within your illusion find themselves moving between the choice of service to others and service to self, and have not moved far enough in either direction to attract the attention of those who would choose to manipulate that movement.
We also suggest that it is not a point to be overly concerned about, for your life pattern will be as it will be, and will include those lessons that you have chosen, and there is no need to concern yourself about the factor or entity outside of the self, but there is great need to look carefully at that which is within the experience of self at the moment of experience in order that the heart of the self may be expressed as clearly and as cleanly and as spontaneously as is possible, whatever experience one encounters.
There will be those elements that are of an exterior nature, whether they be third density entities or those from higher densities. The important ingredient is the perception and attitude of the self as it takes part in and responds to those experiences that belong to it.
Questioner wanted to know how to tell the difference between a life lesson and a psychic greeting. Q’uo said that there really was no difference between a psychic greeting and a life lesson because one must provide an opportunity for a psychic greeting to occur, so one could learn from both. When Questioner asked a follow up question about whether to make a different response to a psychic greeting than a personal lesson Q’uo said that in both cases it was import to look within one’s being so that the heart of love could be utilized in any response. On October 23, 1994, Q’uo suggested that finding love within one’s being is most important:
The efforts to rectify difficult situations can oftentimes lead to breakthrough experiences with the other self as hearts open honestly to each other. That this does not occur often makes the desire for it all the greater in those who wish to give and to receive love within your illusion. The constant desire and effort made in this direction is that which builds within you the metaphysical or spiritual power which is much like the power of any battery which stores energy. As you increase the positive polarization the battery has the ability to do more work.
This is so in consciousness as you intend, and intend, and intend and work without stint to attempt to find love within the self, within others, and within the situations that you share. That you shall feel that you fail most of the time is not of central importance. Of central importance is that you continue to try.
Is there a further query, my brother?
Questioner: No. I appreciate the answer as it has been given.
I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my brother, for your queries. Is there another query at this time?
I am Q’uo, and we wish to thank those gathered this evening for offering to us the desire to know more of the nature of your own experience and its relationship to the plan of evolution which each of us finds ourselves moving within. It is a great and mysterious journey that each of us undertakes when we seek to unlock the keys to the fundamental questions of the nature of our lives of the creation about us and of our source and destination in this great experience of life. We bless each which moves upon this journey, and we thank each for allowing us to join you for a step or two along your way. We take inspiration from your efforts and we hope that we may give you inspiration with our information that might be helpful upon your journeys. We cannot thank you enough for your very being and for your gracious desire to share with us. We are those of Q’uo, and we take this opportunity to leave this instrument and this group at this time, leaving each, as always, in the love the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.
This morning Anna had stayed overnight after the public channeling meditation yesterday, and she and I listened to the first few Ra sessions where we could hear Carla channeling Ra and at the same time see the words she was channeling on the screen. When the slowness of the channeling was added into the experience we both found that we were able to find information that had various layers to it, and we frequently paused the channeling to talk about what we felt Ra was saying. It was quite a profound experience, and I certainly do look forward to continuing on with this process. If anyone else would like to listen to these recordings go to our website: www.llresearch.org then click on The Ra Contact, and then click on the Original Audio Recordings.
This afternoon I used the carpet sweeper on the hall runner upstairs. Then I swept Benny’s room with my broom, and then I used the dust mop in all three rooms upstairs.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
The Man, Jesus
I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.
Gaze you now within upon a man of love; a man of compassion; a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief; a man who stands your personal friend; a man whom you already love as a personal friend. For such has been his character in all that you have heard about him.
We speak to you of a man, Jesus. The Christ you may worship, but we bring you the man today that you may gaze upon Him and that you may reach out for His hand.
For He is the brother of all humankind and, as you, true son of the Father of all. Think the name, “Jesus,” and the spirit of love shall be with you, for such is the power of that name. We do not expect each to worship in the same way, to adore in the same fashion, or to offer praise and thanksgiving in the same place. We simply say to you, “Here is one way of gazing upon love. Here is one way of reaching out a hand and becoming one with that comfort.”
For you must have no doubt that this man who is eternal is, in His whole being, shot through with love of all that His Father has made.
May you feel the peace and security of being loved and loving, whether you are alone or in a family. All seekers spend spiritual time alone. Yet, seeker, you need never be alone completely if you may say the name, Jesus.
We leave you in that holy friendship, in that gentle brotherhood, in the ineffable peace of the consciousness of love, 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.
