I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from November 17, 1991:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light through this instrument. It is our privilege at this time to ask if there be any queries upon any other topic that we may attempt response to?

Questioner: I have a question, Q’uo. Prior to the session, a situation was discussed about helping ourselves to [inaudible] the disadvantaged within our particular society, and my observation was that the feelings that came to me during that [inaudible] were unexpected. I wonder if there is any use for logical reasoning in trying to observe one’s own reaction in giving aid or helping another, or if it is more useful for a seeker just to accept it as it is and sort of try to do the best every time with the situation that comes up? I wonder if you could comment on it?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. The situation of which you speak is one in which you were offered the opportunity to be of service to another in a very direct and immediate fashion. This quality of immediacy is that which catches the seeker, shall we say, in an off-guard position, as you may put it. The spontaneous response of any entity to any stimulus is to act in this off-guarded moment in a pure and unpretentious fashion. To look at this experience as it has been completed, and to review one’s reactions, thoughts and emotions is the archetypical path of the seeker, for the examination of the life pattern is the seeking of truth.

The illusion exists for your seeking and your learning. Thus, we applaud the care taken in investigating one’s responses to significant stimuli. The significance is chosen by each of you according to that which moves your inner rhythms, those patterns programmed previous to the incarnation. Thus, is it well to spend time daily reflecting upon the day as it has passed, to note those experiences of significance where there was movement in your own consciousness that felt and left behind a strength and a mark upon your memory.

May we speak in any other fashion, my brother?

Questioner: I will take it further by saying that when I agree to help, I have some expectation of the way it would feel, and it did not feel that way. So I would ask you, what kind of experience does a seeker set himself up for when the approach is giving aid with some frequency of idea of what it might be like, or what it should be like? If you could comment on that in any way you feel you can.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. To have a preconceived idea as to the outcome of any event is to confuse the perception of that event when it occurs. This provides additional catalyst to the seeker, and it is not inappropriate to have these preconceptions; however, it may be noted to be inconvenient. It may also be noted by the seeker that there are a great many responses possible as a result of the giving of service, and each response may be carefully noted and investigated so that the connection with giving without condition can be made.

Questioner had the chance to be of service to a disadvantaged person, and he experienced unexpected feelings when thinking about this opportunity. So, he asked Q’uo if the best way to move forward in giving service was logical reasoning or to just accept the chance to be of service? Q’uo responded by saying that the immediate nature of the chance to be of service caught Questioner by surprise gave him the opportunity to respond in a pure and unpretentious fashion. Q’uo recommended that as he reviewed his response he was demonstrating the archetypical path of the seeker of truth. Q’uo said that this type of reviewing one’s responses to the stimuli of the day gives the seeker a chance to see its pre-incarnative choices and movement in one’s consciousness. Then Questioner refined his question and said that he had expectations of how it would feel to be of service, but he did not feel that way, and he wanted to know how these expectations affected his ability to be of service. Q’uo said such expectations were not inappropriate but could confuse the service, so they should be examined with an eye to how they would affect the goal of being able to give without expectation of return. On September 25, 1994, Q’uo described in detail what it means to give without expectation of return:

This process of seeking which we have described in our previous words is one which is universal for all third-density entities which live within the illusion of the separation of conscious and sub-conscious mind. To penetrate the veil of forgetting enough to love without expectation of return is a process which has steps, or as you know them, the archetypical images, that reflect the seeker’s journey.

We have been speaking this day of The Choice that is represented by the twenty-second archetype, known as the Fool. The entire process of seeking within your third-density illusion is one in which you become that Fool. It is a process which contains the, as your Bible has called it, the valley of the shadow of death. There is in this process a rod and a staff which comforts those who walk through the valley of the shadow of death. These are the will and the faith components that ring throughout each archetypical image and are as the guiding star, for the faith that this process will end well must be fueled by the will to persevere. Thus, there is the threat of the falling to one’s death, the being eaten alive by the illusion, the inability to see the danger about one, for it is all about one in darkness, it would seem.

Thus, the image of the Fool is well suited to your illusion and is given as that motto by which each might look for inspiration and illumination of the heart. We speak of the heart for there the love of the Creator may be found and experienced for the self and for all other selves as the self which is the seeker which continues to place itself in positions similar to the walking from the cliff, willing to be vulnerable and to give without expectation of return.

Thus, you see this image again and again invoked by the seeker in the daily round of activities and, indeed, within this circle of seeking. As you have begun your meditation, each placed the self in that position to share openly with all others gathered here that the effort of seeking might be enhanced by the open-hearted sharing of what was in each heart.

This archetype is the most active archetype, shall we say. Though it is the last to be mastered, it is the first to be called and the one to be called most often, my friends.

Is there any further query, my brother?

Questioner: No, Q’uo, thank you.

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

Carla: Well, this is personal, but I was talking with Jim the other day and we were wondering what had changed since the readings that I was given by Ra that had enabled me to do things that at that time I simply could not do. If this is not a subject you can speak upon, that’s fine. If you can comment, great.

I am Q’uo. We first ask if we spoke too soon?

Carla: Well, Q’uo, only because I always have something else to say. I was just going to say I’m just asking in general.

I am Q’uo—still. And we give this instrument the image of the steel door locked carefully, and apologize for the lack of information. Is there another query, my sister?

Carla: Would it aid my understanding of the energies at work in my life for me to meditate on this door?

I am Q’uo. And we would suggest that the query itself be the focus of meditation.

Carla: Very well.

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

Carla: No, thank you.

I am Q’uo, and we thank each for your patience, and most especially for your invitation to us, for we are always filled with joy to receive it and to have the opportunity to blend our vibrations with yours. We are most grateful to walk with you during this portion of your journey and assure each of you that there are many such as we who walk with you always, and there are those who rejoice at your every step. We shall take this opportunity to leave this instrument and this circle of working, leaving each, as always, 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.

Yesterday afternoon we had a public channeling meditation that had 13 people in attendance, and in our round robin we each had an opportunity to share the nature of our current spiritual journey. I am always amazed at how we seem to get such open-hearted people, and this kind of sharing seems to make the questions that they ask Q’uo to be of such an inspiring nature. After the channeling was over everyone stayed for about an hour with a good deal of the conversation focused on the types of dreams that each had in the recent past and how much working with dreams inspired them.

This morning Anna and I listened to Sessions 18, 19, & 20 of Carla channeling Ra. It was a great experience once again as the slowness of Carla’s channeling combined with being able to read the words she was channeling gave us a deeper grasp of what was being discussed by Don and Ra.

This afternoon I dug up another load of moss from the pet cemetery and transplanted it into the Moss Garden. Then I weeded the day lilies on the south side of the garage and put up a wire fence to keep the deer from eating them.

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

March 24

The Ore Of Humankind

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

The gem-like quality of the pilgrim’s soul may be seen seldom with your dark physical eyes, for the ore of humankind is rough and the exterior of most gem-like souls is pitted, darkened, and scarred by erosion and age.

It is the function of the spirit of love to enhance one’s eyesight when gazing at gold and gems in the rough. There is a vision which comes only to those who refuse to trust their physical eyes.

 May you ask this boon of the spirit of Christ, for each time that you see the Christ in another, you have become Christ to that other, and the gem that is your pilgrim’s soul is polished and faceted by deed and thought.

We leave you in the peace and comfort of love. 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.
