I did the Morning Offering and then I got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from February 22, 1991:

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo and greet each of you, my friends, in the love and light of the Infinite Creator. It is our great pleasure to be with you and to experience with you the quiet and peace of your surroundings on this morning. We thank you for this opportunity and privilege to share with you, and for the opportunity to be of service in working with the local channels of your group.

You wish information this morning on being and doing. These concepts represent the passive and active principles of nature itself. They are manifested most initially in the concepts you know of as “love and light”; love being the primary state of beingness of the infinite Creator and light being manifestation thereof. We see these basic principles extrapolated in all of the creation around you. In many cases it may be difficult to differentiate between the two. For example: the entity which you call your sun is, in its very nature, a body which emanates light and heat. It is difficult to tell how much of this is the being aspect of the sun body and how much is the doing; how much, shall we say, is passive radiation and how much is active. In most cases, however, it is easier to differentiate between the two, or at least seemingly so.

We have spoken to you before regarding the nature of service and the types of service which, in our humble opinion, we deem to be most important. The most important and effective service, as you know and as we have spoken about previously, is simply the radiance of being. That is the emanation from the self of the Creator, which is in all. As you also know, your peoples, especially in your Western societies, are very often not able to appreciate this, for the societal conditioning from birth has been oriented toward the doing, the accumulation of tangible results of work done in the life. Your Eastern societies are much more able to understand this concept, it being indigenous to the various wisdom teachings which permeate these cultures. There is a certain amount of integration that is taking place among your peoples in these days. As those from your Western cultures feeling the imbalance of the teachings they have been exposed to, have searched out the ideas in the Eastern cultures. Conversely the technologies of the Western cultures have been introduced into the Eastern societies as well. These exposures may not all be deemed to be beneficial; however, they do serve to effect more of a balance in the differing types of energies.

The balance between being and doing is that which must be sought for each individual seeker. This will differ from entity to entity and from time to time. Those who have been overbalanced in the direction of doing may well need, in the balancing process, to go through great periods of time in which it may seem there is no doing, but only being. This may be very difficult for those entities involved, as the value systems that have been evolved in the society have placed the measure of the value of the self on those things that have been accomplished.

The topic for this practice channeling session was being and doing which Q’uo described as the passive and active portion of nature itself which are manifested as love and light. They described love as the nature of the Creator which manifested as the light of the created universe. Q’uo used the sun as an example both of the being which created light and also as its manifestation of light. Then Q’uo said that the most important service that we could offer was our being which is an emanation of the Creator within us, but most of our culture is focused on doing and accumulating the tangible results of working for a living. Q’uo also mentioned how some of the Eastern countries had a better grasp of being as their indigenous cultures were examples of this, and some people in our Western cultures had become familiar with this concept of being. On September 23, 1990, Q’uo gave a basic definition of being and doing:

I am Q’uo, and we feel that we have a grasp of your query, my sister. You have two desires: to be, without adornment; and to be helpful, to others. One concerns, it would seem, only the self. The other concerns, it would seem, only others. It is true that your nature is of that kind which seeks to give where there is need, and seeks little in return, if anything is sought, for such actions. On one level of understanding, it could be said that a choice must be made: for one desire to be fulfilled and the other to be dropped.

However, rather than dwell upon this more shallow interpretation of your question, we would suggest that what you seek in the heart of your being is how to be in the presence of the one Creator in all your life experience. This, of course, is a product of the attitude, the motivation, the initial impulse for all that occurs in your life pattern.

Thus, we do not see the query as one which needs to make a choice between being and doing, but that which seeks an attitude of being filled with the presence of the one Creator, so that the moment is sufficient unto itself, and that as you exist in that moment that is ever-present, that which is appropriate for you to be or do will present itself to you without question. This attitude is that gift of grace which all seekers seek and revere, yet achieve not so much by ritual, by action, by prayer, or by any activity. It is rather that which is born in its own time through the persistent exercise of desire to know the truth.

Ultimately, we feel that being is all that there is. The doing is all a part of whatever illusion each is operating within at any given time. This is not to suggest that the doing is not worthwhile.

Indeed, the doing may be the primary means whereby each entity works out his path of service. As in all else, the determination of the value of the doing lies in the intent. However, even with the highest of intentions for the doingness to be of service, the deep self will know the balances necessary for himself and, if it deems it necessary that the balance be moved from the doing toward the being, it will effect this change. In this process we would suggest that it is most helpful to attempt to proceed in the process of knowledge of the self, that the wisdom of the deep self may be felt, trusted and rested within. This may be a very difficult process for those among your peoples who are oriented toward the doing, especially as many of these also have strong biases towards being in control of the self and of the various situations which are encountered.

It may be felt that by being, rather than doing, one is losing any control one has had over the self and of the life. This may be a very frightening thing for many. And indeed learning to know and rely on the deep wisdom of the self, rather than the conscious decision making processes in which entities of your Western culture have been trained, is also frightening for many.

Lastly we would suggest that each entity keep uppermost in his consciousness the knowledge and assurance of aid that is available to each at any time. These resources are both within and without you. Each is in a process of discovering both types of resources for each, and there are more yet to be discovered. You need not go through these process alone and unaided.

Q’uo continued by saying that being is all that there is, and that doing is a part of whatever illusion one is operating within to learn its lessons of service. They said that in order to know what lessons of service are meant to be learned that it is well to access the knowledge of the deep self to determine how one should balance the being with the doing rather than depend upon one’s conscious mind to make this decision. Q’uo also said that this inner aid to discovering this balance could be added to by sources outside of ourselves as well, and I would imagine that they are speaking of guides. On December 12, 1993, Q’uo spoke of the nature of balancing being and doing:

And if your desire is to balance being and doing, then you shall surely notice, again and again, that you wish to be given more tools and resources to aid you in combating and working with the self as it is perceived by the self to be acting out of balance.

So those things which concern or worry, like this repetition, are not in our opinion negative, but rather merely indicative of where the energy is within each of you in the circle. Please consider how long this spiritual journey is, and how infinitely fine the distinctions and the enlightenments become as the spirit progresses through the densities to gaze at the long view. Not only are you attempting within incarnation to balance the being and the doing, the resting and the acting, but there are millions and millions of your years ahead in which you shall only tighten and magnify the scope of that which you observe, looking always not at what has been gained, but at what there is to do. These lessons, shall we call them, go on forever, until time itself becomes meaningless and spiritual gravity takes over.

We feel that these words are sufficient for a beginning upon this topic, which is one of great breadth and depth, and would be happy to answer further questions at another time, as you measure. We thank this group once again, for the opportunity to speak and thank this instrument for its conscientiousness in focusing upon a contact.

We would transfer at this time to the one known as Jim. We are known to you as those of Q’uo.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each of you again, in love and in light. At this time we would ask if we may speak to any query, which may be of service. Is there a query at this time?


I am Q’uo, we can confirm your supposition, with an addition to it. The entities so gathered have offered themselves as, what you might call, a spectrum of contacts which would allow the one known as K to open herself to that vibrational frequency which was most in harmony with her current vibration of frequency at this time, thus giving her the opportunity to partake in a contact which would be more easily maintained for a significant portion of your time, in order that the exercising of her instrument might be accomplished with the greatest facility. It is also true that the one known as K would, in this selection of contacts, have the opportunity to discriminate between the entities; and, we are pleased to observe and report that one known as K was able to discern and offer itself as instrument to the vibration that is our own and, at this time, according to the harmonics developed between her and our group, was the contact most easily initiated and maintained.

Is there another query, my sister?


I am Q’uo and we are grateful to you, as well, my sister. Is there another query?


I am Q’uo, we thank each present for partaking in this session of working, for it is the means by which we are able to offer our service to you and to others of your peoples who would have interest in this work. We always give great praise and thanksgiving for the opportunity to join this group, whether our thoughts are voiced or whether there is the simple enjoyment of our conditioning and deepening of meditation vibrations.

We are those of Q’uo, we leave each in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I went outside and picked up small tree limbs that had been blown down by recent winds and put them in a garbage can to be picked up by yard waste this Thursday.

This afternoon I went to my PCP for my yearly physical. In general, my lab report was good, but my blood pressure was high enough that she suggested that I take two lisinopril per day instead of two. Plus, my hemoglobin was high enough to put me in the range of pre-diabetic, so I need to concentrate on eating more protein and less carbohydrates. She also said that recent studies have shown that people who have had the Covid vaccinations are more likely to become diabetic.

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

February 19

Stop, Rest And Listen

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

Stop, rest and listen. Let these be the watchwords of your busy day.

Into this day there shall come those sounds which distract the senses, for the world of the city makes powerful noise with its engines and business. And those who dwell in pastures, plains and mountain farmlands may hear too the distracting noises of nature, that noisy, joyful mistress of the Creator’s manifestation of love and service upon your planet.

Let not these sounds disturb and distract without using this energy to return and to remember love. May each distraction then become a prayer and each disharmony, harmony, by the realignment of the ear to inner silence.

For the peace of Jesus the Christ is not found without effort; without the turning of the will; without the remembering of the heart. Let these be your works when noise disturbs and clamor seems to overwhelm the senses. For you are strong within and, within, you tabernacle with the silence.

We leave you in joy and peace, 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.
