I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter One and the concept of life, catalyst, and emotions:

Chapter One

Life, Catalyst, and Emotions

A note from Jim:

The following chapter is the only chapter that was written by Carla. I would like mention that this was perhaps her rough draft. While we have chosen to leave it unedited but for the rare typographical error, it is possible that Carla would have wanted to change or add to this substantially in either wording or content. I have added my own thoughts in the footnotes.

Life on Earth

The Creator sent you forth, at the beginning of this creation, as a collector, observer and transmuter of experience. Your job has been, and continues to be, to observe all things; to create within yourself an awareness of how you feel about those things; to create questions and find the heart of your desire as you look at how you feel, and then to move yourself forward along the paths that you have chosen in order to respond.

Again and again you have been called forth from contentment into discontent, from sameness into change, from stability into the seeming chaos of transformation. We would ask simply that you approach the changes that this time in your life calls forth from you with a stubborn and fearless faith that all is well and that these transformational changes are not to your detriment, although the world may see them that way.[1]

This volume is titled 102: The Outer Work. Its focus is the everyday work we do in the lower three chakras—the red, orange, and yellow energy centers, plus the great central chakra, the green-ray energy center of the heart.

The red-ray chakra works with issues of sexuality and survival. The orange-ray chakra works with personal relationships—our relationships with ourselves and our relationships with other people. The yellow-ray energy center deals with formalized relationships, such as those related to our birth and marriage families and our work environment.

When I pondered how to begin to discuss these issues, at first I thought I would proceed from issue to issue, taking red-ray issues first, then proceeding to orange-ray topics and then yellow-ray matters. But this approach does not work. A seeker deals with the same emotions in all three energy enters. For instance, he might feel the emotion of hatred for his sexuality, his work, himself, or his mate.

This reasoning made me see that we needed to look at emotions before tackling any issues. And since emotions arise in the context of the catalyst we receive in the course of our daily lives, I found myself looking at life on Planet Earth.

On Planet Earth, everyone suffers. That is a given. Rich or poor, young or old, we all undergo suffering again and again. Life on Earth is an environment in which suffering is inbuilt. As Q’uo says of third-density life on Planet Earth:

“It is an environment designed to shake a complacent person out of his complacency and to challenge his presuppositions. The goal of this is not simply to give the seeking soul a degree of suffering, but to set the stage for that great choice of polarity upon which the next two and a half densities are based, and which shall only be refined in fourth, fifth and sixth densities by further studies in love, in wisdom, and in unity.”[2]

The suffering is not senseless. It offers us “grist for the mill” of our spiritual processes. No healthy human deliberately seeks to suffer. No one likes to suffer. As Forrest Gump’s bumper sticker says, “sh*t happens.” And it happens on purpose, in terms of our overall plan for incarnation.

This is the opening title of a book by Baba Ram Dass and Stephen Levine: 

Grist for the Mill
The Mellow Drama
Dying: An Opportunity for Awakening
Freeing the Mind • Karmuppance
God and Beyond

When we are born, we have already shaped our life on Earth to some extent. We have set up for ourselves incarnational lessons, things we want to bring into focus. These things always have to do with balance. Perhaps we want to become more loving, feeling that we are unbalanced on the side of wisdom. Perhaps we want to season our compassion with more wisdom. Perhaps we want to find for ourselves the right use of power.

Somewhere in these dynamics you will probably recognize the theme or themes of the catalyst you have found to repeat again and again in your life so far. For me, the incarnational lessons have been two: to learn better to give love without expectation of return, and to add wisdom to the workings of my sometimes foolishly loving heart.

Working with our guidance systems before incarnation, we choose our relationships carefully. We choose our parents, mates, friends and even our enemies, if we have them. [DR1] And we choose redundantly, so that no matter how many times we choose within incarnation to walk away from our incarnational lessons, there remain plenty of players in the wings who will help us bring them up again.

We were not being masochistic when we so planned. Indeed, we were eager to engage with these incarnational themes. From the standpoint of pre-incarnative planning, we could see the great benefit of doing this work within incarnation. An incarnation, from that point of view, looks just like a term of school. The times when catalyst strikes and our emotions are engaged do not look like suffering, outside the veil. They look like section tests, ten-minutes quizzes, mid-term exams and finals.

That perspective does not last long! By the time we have traveled through the birth canal and out into the cold hard world, we have lost the long view. I feel sure that for me, it happened even before I was born. I was in the womb for a bit over ten months. I must have been very reluctant to enter the classroom of life on Earth!

Sixty-six years later and counting, I am thankful I did choose to come into incarnation now. I have had hard lessons, but as I look back on them with the wisdom of hindsight I can see that each one has added a great deal to my ability to serve the One Creator.  Each bout of suffering has indeed been a gift. And I am grateful, but not because I should be—who was ever improved by doing what he “should”? I am grateful because I see the value gained, the tempering of my soul that has made it stronger and more flexible and the disciplining of my earthly personality shell so that I can live a more abundant, more joyful, more self-realized life.

Life on Earth has not made me cocky. I do not waken in the morning and say to life, “Bring it! Let’s boogie!” Indeed, if I have learned anything so far, it is that I need help. So I start my day with chapel time, in the sanctuary of my inner room of prayer. I dedicate this one day entirely to the Creator. And I ask Spirit to help me stay on task. I thank my angels for their deep love and sweet guardianship and ask them also to aide my awareness.

An important feature of life on Earth is the recurrence of one’s incarnational lessons. We cannot open our hearts—or any other chakras—and expect them to stay open. We do not learn our lessons once and never again. The ocean of life has its tides, and we may expect the occasions for suffering to come and go with every moon and season of our lives. And so we do well to start each new day as though it and we are completely new to life, yet also as though we are living the very last day of our lives. Both attitudes are equally true and helpful.

There is an added piquancy to these opening days of the twenty-first century. We are seeing the last of third-density light now, as 2012 comes ever closer. As Q’uo says:

“Within third-density life as it has been experienced upon your planet for many millennia there has been third-density light that shone, both physically and metaphysically, and helped you to work towards making your choice of polarity and then maintaining that polarity and increasing that polarity. Ever since perhaps forty of your years ago that situation has gradually changed and it has made things more difficult for third-density entities upon your planet. Your planet comes closer and closer to that time when fourth density shall be the active density and third-density light shall be exhausted. […] As this instrument has experienced this change, it has been a matter of being completely unable to avoid looking at each and every part of the universal personality which this instrument has which has not yet been integrated into the heart, the mind, and the basic beingness of the surface personality.”[4]

In these final days of third density, the stakes are higher for us. It has become both more difficult and more desirable to study for our third-density final, the graduation harvest we will undergo when we drop our physical bodies at the natural end of our third-density incarnations.

Do not be dismayed because the time is so short. Indeed, do not be concerned if you are reading these words after 2012. Your higher self would not abandon you here if you could not do the work. So settle in and do the work you came to do. As you go, be heartened by Q’uo’s words:

“My dear ones, you are the light of the world. It is from hearts such as yours that the light of your plane comes. It is from lives such as yours that the great procession of life and death is imbued, in the passion play of life on Earth, with honor, dignity, compassion and deep caring. You have within you every force of death and every force of light/[life?]. Nothing has been left out of your makeup. It is the way of the spiritual sojourner to live that uncomfortable life that is aware of these matters, that is aware of the great wheel of evolution working through time and space to bring consciousness to that infinite present moment where that great Love that created all that there is suddenly explodes into light, infinite and indivisible.”[5]

In Living the Law of One—101: The Choice, I suggested that the Confederation’s view is that life is a game. The Confederation suggests that we can play the Game of Life as spiritual athletes, and we can win it. “The Choice” to which the title of 101 refers is the choice of polarity. For only as we polarize past a certain point can we win the Game and move through the harvest of third density to achieve fourth density or, to put it in educational terms, graduate from third grade to fourth grade in this School for the Refinery of Souls.

This morning I was on a zoom meet with my three long-time friends and we took up our study of The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One and Living Buddha, Living Christ by Tich Nhat Hanh. We always start with a check in to see how everyone is doing since we last met three weeks ago. We had a good study session and enjoyed each other’s company.

This afternoon I went outside and filled a little dirt in beside the bricks that I raised up to ground level last week. Then I replaced the pyramid structure in the middle of the cross area that had been blown down in the wind. I also finished weeding the Moss Garden and, while I was at it, leveled out a few bricks in the brick walkway.

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

Run With Love

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

How shall the Holy Spirit appear to you this day? What are your needs? For as you express and inwardly feel those spiritual needs, so is the spirit called to appear, to strengthen, to comfort, and to enable.

Is it energy and will that you need? Then experience the force that produces these words as flames of divine and enabling fire, energizing and enlivening.

Must you run the straight race very quickly today? Must you hasten and hurry? Crowd your day, then, but open your heart that love may run with you; that love may hasten and hurry and worry and fret in comfortable companionship with that state of mind you choose for yourself.

Are you in grief, in sorrow, and in despair? Call, then and open within to the divine Comforter, to the nurturer and lover of all souls.

There is no condition in which the spirit of love cannot enter and heal. There is no activity in which the spirit of divine love and compassion cannot enable, enliven and strengthen.

The spirit of love is an active, plastic, malleable, universal expression of the absolute presence of divine love in each soul, everywhere, always, in every moment.

May you find peace that you are not alone, be you hastening, resting or weeping. Always there is the Comforter.

We leave you in this reassurance, this knowledge, of love and peace unending. 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.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from the Prologue and the section on we three:

We Three

Don, Carla and I shared a unique and very harmonious configuration of energies. By the time I arrived, Don had chosen a life of celibacy but loved Carla dearly. Carla likewise adored Don but did not prefer celibacy. I was, at first, a recluse who liked to spend my free time in the wilderness. Carla and I eventually enjoyed an intimate relationship that was grounded in loving friendship, which would one day evolve into a deep and meaningful romance. Don and I were, of course, friends from the start, trusting in our mutual love for Carla, each supportive of the other. The Ra contact began only a few weeks after I arrived to aid Don and Carla’s truth-seeking mission. Once the contact was underway, Don, Carla, and I each had a role to play, and we faced the Choice together, day by day.

Perhaps Carla’s most concentrated act of selflessness was to risk her own life, and more, to sustain the Ra contact, serving as what Ra called “the instrument.” Willingly going into trance and allowing Ra to speak through her took a huge toll on her body despite everyone’s efforts, Ra’s included, to maintain her wellness. The sessions rapidly used up physical material to the extent that Carla was eating all the food she could and still losing two to three pounds per session in the beginning of the Ra contact. All the while, a negative fifth-density entity was, according to Ra, orchestrating ways to end Carla’s already-delicate life. Carla was urged by Ra to consider how martyring herself to the contact, though selfless, would run counter to her goal of sustaining communication with Ra. She was advised to rely on Don and me to help her evaluate whether she was vital enough for another session, for Carla’s irrepressible will to serve superseded all physical limitation, and our fifth-density friend was aware that the instrument could be encouraged to overdo it and risk her fragile life at any moment. Fortunately, Carla chose wisely and we three worked together to keep the contact going for as long as possible until Don’s passing.

For Don, the contact was his ultimate joy. He would meditate to receive ideas about the questions he would ask Ra, sometimes drawing with a finger in the air to work out complex thoughts. Don was brilliant and, some would say, uncannily well-suited in his role as “the questioner”. It cannot be a coincidence that his knowledge of physics and his deep appreciation for metaphysics often allowed him to instantly understand Ra and to ask such intelligent and poignant questions with relative ease. Don took Ra’s advice with the utmost seriousness, attending to each detail that would help protect and prolong the contact. Until his mental health began to deteriorate, Don was an extremely calm, sharp and focused individual, giving all that he had to our work together while also supporting us financially as an airline pilot so that we could carry on without worry over our basic needs being met.

My role during those golden days of shared service was as “the scribe” and a “battery” for the contact. From the beginning to the end of each session with Ra, I would meditate, visualizing white light that contained every color of the rainbow entering Carla’s crown chakra, radiating out of each energy center, then emanating out of her feet and circulating back to her crown. Carla and I eventually discovered that our lovemaking between sessions also helped to prolong the contact by transferring vital energy to Carla that would increase her stamina when she was in trance, so that the contact did not draw so heavily upon her personal reserves of life force, as the latter posed a great risk to her physical vehicle. In 79.4 Ra described how this sexual energy transfer aided the Ra contact:

Questioner: In that case, she would like to know the function of the energy transfer during the session.

Ra: I am Ra. The function of this energy transfer is a most helpful one in that it serves to strengthen the shuttle through which the instreaming contact is received. The contact itself will monitor the condition of the instrument and cease communication when the distortions of the instrument begin to fluctuate towards the distortions of weakness or pain. However, while the contact is ongoing the strength of the channel through which this contact flows may be aided by the energy transfer of which you spoke.

Also, as the “scribe,” as Ra called me, I would listen to the cassette tapes after every session and transcribe them on my electric typewriter. My other roles included keeping up with the household chores and repairs, cooking, and aiding Carla in managing daily life with her delicate, arthritic physical vehicle. However, I’d say that, just like Don and Carla, my most basic role in the contact was a passive one: as Ra explained, the effortless harmony that existed between me, Carla, and Don is what made it all possible, and that was reportedly due to our many lifetimes spent in service to one another. In 9.2, Ra shared some information about our previous lives together:

Questioner: Is it possible for you to tell us of anything in our past incarnations, our past experiences before this incarnation?

Ra: I am Ra. It is possible. However, such information as this is carefully guarded by your mind/body/spirit being totality so that your present space/time experiences will be undiluted.

Let us scan for harmless material for your beingness. [20-second pause.] I am, in the distortion of desire for your freedom from preconception, able to speak only generally. There have been several times when this group worked and dwelt together. The relationships varied. There is balanced karma, as you call it; each thus the teacher of each. The work has involved healing, understanding the uses of the earth energy, and work in aid of civilizations which called just as your sphere has done and we have come. This ends the material which we consider harmless.

The Ra contact came to a tragic end with Don’s suicide on November 7, 1984. There were so many extraordinarily unique metaphysical factors that contributed to his passing that I wrote an essay about it, which can be read by Googling its title on the internet: “The 34th Anniversary of the Passing of Don Elkins.” After Don’s passing Carla saw him in waking visions where he let her know that “Everything turned out the way it was meant to be, but she wouldn’t understand that until she too passed through death’s door.” Though I certainly don’t know how that may be true, I also feel that it is true.

Throughout our thirty-one years together after Don’s passing, Carla and I took every opportunity to share the philosophy of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the One Infinite Creator. We offered weekly channeling meditations; we taught students how to channel; we held workshops around the country to share Confederation philosophy; Carla wrote A Channeling Handbook and A Wanderer’s Handbook; she channeled A Book of Days: Channelings From the Holy Spirit. We began holding our Homecoming Gathering on Labor Day weekend beginning in 1995, and Carla offered herself as a counselor and spiritual advisor to anyone who wished to take advantage of her deep thoughts and feelings regarding the spiritual path and how people might translate their problems to a means of enhancing their own seeking process. Carla remained a tireless devotee of Christ, singing choral hymns of praise and serving in her church in as many other ways as her frail body would allow.

It took about six years for Carla to go through the grieving process for Don’s passing, but she and I knew that our work for the rest of our lives would be to attempt to fulfill Don’s dream to make the information from the Ra contact available to the entire world for free. The eventual birth and growth of the internet made it possible to do that, allowing us to offer all of our material to read or download for free to any interested seekers around the world who can find it on our website www.llresearch.org.

When Don was alive, he and Carla were unmarried, but they were joined in deep love and devotion. As Ra said: “These two entities have been as one for a timeless period and have manifested this in your space/time.” At first, Carla and I loved each other, but not in a romantic way. However, after Don’s passing, we felt that since we planned to be together for the rest of our lives in attempting to be of service to others that the most magical and powerful way to do that would be if we consciously attempted to live and grow together as mates. So, we married on May 30, 1987, symbolizing our inner commitment to shared spiritual seeking. And, of course, she and I eventually fell head over heels in love with each other.

In 2002 I started a lawn service to help sustain us and would continue that for eleven years, as the monies left to us by Don had dwindled. We soon opened our home to various seekers who wished to live in community and study the Law of One. A young seeker named Gary Bean arrived in 2003 and would eventually become a skilled administrator of L/L Research, serving as director and then co-director.

At that time, Carla busied herself with service to her church, healing her body, cooking delicious meals, mentoring members of the L/L readership, and producing all kinds of spiritual material through channeling and writing. In 2005 she made a trip to England to speak at five different locations. She wanted to let readers know how the trip went, and so she began the Camelot Journal, an online blog. When she returned home, she decided to keep the journal going as a means of letting readers know what a day in the life of L/L Research was like.

The last four years of Carla’s life were spent in our room in a hospital bed as she attempted to recover from two surgeries, one on her upper back (2010) which was successful in helping her to type again, and one on her lower back (2011) which created an open wound that never healed. I took over writing the Camelot Journal after the second surgery and continue it to this day, though now I write about my own daily life and share my spiritual studies and thoughts on the Law of One. In 2013, another gift from the Creator arrived in the form of Austin Bridges, a seeker who would join Gary in managing the organization.

Carla’s being confined to her hospital bed allowed her to do some major incarnational balancing work as Ra described in this quote:

“As we have said, this instrument, feeling that it lacked compassion to balance wisdom, chose an incarnative experience whereby it was of necessity placed in situations of accepting self in the absence of other-selves’ acceptance and the acceptance of other-self without expecting a return or energy transfer. This is not an easy program for an incarnation but was deemed proper by this entity.

This entity therefore must needs meditate and consciously, moment by moment, accept the self in its limitations which have been placed for the very purpose of bringing this entity to the precise tuning we are using. Further, having learned to radiate acceptance and love without expecting return, this entity now must balance this by learning to accept the gifts of love and acceptance of others which this instrument feels some discomfort in accepting. These two balancing workings will aid this entity in the release from the distortion called pain. The limitations are, to a great extent, fixed.”[1]

Carla spent her childhood giving without expectation of return. Being confined to the hospital bed allowed her to “to accept the gifts of love and acceptance of others” as she needed to have so much done for her that she could no longer do for herself.

And I learned how to open my heart in unconditional love as never before as her primary caregiver. My service to Carla included helping her to dress for outings to the doctor, cooking our meals, administering Carla’s medications, sitting by her while we watched TV and then, when her eyesight failed her, I read a number of books to her. I also changed the dressings on Carla’s surgical wound, helped her with personal care, and massaged her sore neck, shoulders, feet, and hands. We always shared the Morning Offering and meditated twice each day. This lasted for four years, until Carla passed into larger life on April 1, 2015.

I discovered that my experience serving Carla had opened my heart to all beings. Since her passing, this heart-opening has allowed me to carry on Carla’s legacy of sharing the Law of One with our L/L family. I have continued to offer public meditations in our home. I have narrated as audio books all the volumes Carla wrote or channeled. There is an ongoing practice channeling meditation with four other members of L/L Research. My meditative practice has naturally deepened over time, and I still clean and tend to this beautiful, beloved house, caring for several kitties and for the gardens that always gave Carla such enjoyment.

Today and for a number of years, L/L Research is blessed by the tireless work and leadership of three wonderful, dedicated spiritual friends who also exemplify living the Choice: Austin Bridges, Joanna Burns, and Gary and Trisha Bean. [G1] Our little nonprofit is also fueled by volunteers from around the world who have likewise chosen the path of service to others. I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude to each of them and to you, our beloved readership for every moment of your devotion to the Choice to serve all in love and light.

This afternoon I was able to spend some time talking to a friend of a few years who lives here in Louisville and who hosted a number of podcasts with me as his guest. We were joined by a new friend who has been staying with me since the public channeling session last Saturday as she hopes to move to the Louisville area and buy some property where she will continue her life’s work of healing with music and dance. It was a good conversation which gave each of us a chance to learn more about the spiritual paths that we all have taken for many years.

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

March 19

Instead Of Judgment

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

The tongue of the pilgrim is often swift to judge the thoughts and actions of the self and others. This is understandable because the pilgrim is greatly concerned with distinguishing true paths from false leads which seem promising at first, yet meander off in unhelpful directions.

However, judgment creates a relationship which is not of the spirit of love between the one who judges and the one who is judged. Love does not cause such a separation and such a relationship.

And thus it is that the pilgrim may find himself much confused in attempting to place the moral impulse into logical settings. The spirit of Christ would offer, instead of judgment, a warm compassion and gentle mercy which acknowledges the infinite mystery of the pilgrim’s heart and the infinite mystery of Christ’s love.

Seek first compassion and mercy, and by the time these attitudes have furnished the pilgrim with information concerning a situation, the pilgrim may well find that even the impulse to judge has been healed and the pilgrim is at peace, resting in mystery and love.

Judgment there shall be, but not as the pilgrim may think. For judgment shall be a peaceful thing and no pilgrim shall feel slighted or bruised by the compassionate and merciful judgment of the Creator, who wishes only to bring all things into unity once again, a unity bonded and bounded in love and peace.

In that happy estate we leave you, 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.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from the Prologue and the section on how Jim chose to live the Choice in his life:

How Jim Chose to Live the Choice in His Life

Compared to Don’s and Carla’s early beginnings in living the Choice, I was a late bloomer. I was a college graduate with majors in business and economics before I discovered that I did not want to pursue making money as my life’s goal. I graduated in 1969, and by that time I had become a member of the “hippie revolution.” Drugs, sex, and rock and roll became a happy interlude in my life pattern that caused me to think seriously about how I wanted to live my life in a manner that focused on what I perceived as righting the wrongs of the American materialistic way of life.

The first thing that I did as I began to think “outside of the cultural box” was to go back to college to take a solid year of sociology so that I had another major that I thought would be more worth pursuing. After studying sociology, I took a slight bend in the road and joined the National Teacher Corps, a program implemented by Congress to improve education for children in low-income areas of our country.

I was based at the University of Florida in Gainesville. There, the Teacher Corp worked with a program at the University of Florida called “Follow Through” that helped ensure children’s successful transition from the Head Start program into elementary school. I was one of  twenty-two “interns” in this program that came from all over the United States. We took a semester of classes on the campus in Gainesville, and then we moved to Jacksonville, Florida, in order to work with the inner-city kids there.

The program had various advantages for us as interns: we studied and earned a Master’s in Education with a specialization in early childhood development. We got experience in the classrooms in Jacksonville; and we were paid salaries while working in the Jacksonville school system. As many of us were hippies, we also got to protest the way that the public schools functioned in some areas. Our protests resulted in our being able to have our own classrooms that were filled with first through third graders who posed discipline problems for their regular teachers.

Though my heart felt to be in the right place in attempting to be of service to the kids in our classrooms, I did not feel that working with kids was my life’s work. After graduation I followed another course of study which I had discovered in the bibliography section of a book that we had used in our Teacher Corps classes called Raspberry Exercises: How to Start Your Own School and Make a Book. One of the sources that the authors of this book referred to was T.D. Lingo, who headed the Adventure Trails Survival School and was located in the Rocky Mountains forty miles west of Denver, Colorado.

He offered a course in Brain Self-Control that had the goal of allowing students to live in the primal nature environment for a month and to use dream analysis, journaling, and re-enacting the early childhood memories that blocked the brain’s natural function to circuit consciousness into the “dormant” frontal lobes. Each of us would build a lean-to out of sight of anyone else and have that be our base for this study.

Three meals per day were shared together, as were the most recent dreams that we’d had and our interpretations of them. We regarded these dreams as gifts from our subconscious minds providing clues to help us realize our full brain potential. Once we were able to get these messages via dreams, our next task was to write about how these messages and memories from childhood had hindered our spiritual growth.

The last stage in the freeing of our brain energies was to take part in a “neuro-drama” in which we replayed the instant in our childhoods where an adult—parents, teachers, neighbors, etc.—had negatively affected us in some fashion that had stunted our mental, emotional, or spiritual growth.

The idea here was that such negative programming had created “open circuits” in our brain’s neurons which drained away our brain’s energy and kept us locked out of our frontal lobes, the part of the brain associated with the third eye and one’s connection to intelligent energy and eventually to intelligent infinity. When three or four of these memories were enacted, we were able to “therapize” ourselves and achieve the frontal lobes experience of joy and bliss.

On July 12, 1972, in the pre-conscious state that occurs when awakening from sleep, I felt a “click” at my third eye, and I had my first frontal lobes experience, which felt like an orgasm in my brain. This would continue to happen over the course of nine years. Ra would one day speak to those experiences:

I am Ra. We scan the questioner and find some pertinent information already available which regards the physiological disposition of this particular part of the brain. The experiences described and experienced are those distillations which may be experienced after a concentration of effort upon the opening of the gateway, or indigo, mind complex so that experience of a sacramental, or violet, ray may occur. These experiences are the beginnings of that which, as the body, the mind, and the spirit become integrated at the gateway, or indigo, level, may then yield not only the experience of joy but the comprehension of intelligent infinity which accompanies it. Thus the body complex orgasm and mind complex orgasm becoming integrated may then set forth the proper gateway for the spiritual complex integration and its use as a shuttle for the sacrament of the fully experienced presence of the One Infinite Creator. Thus there is much to which the questioner may look forward.[1]

I returned to the survival school the following year as a teacher, and then I purchased land in the woods of central Kentucky where I started my own school: The Rock Creek Research & Development Laboratories, Inc. I lived off the grid on that land for six and one-half years and eventually had two classes of students take the Brain in Nature Course there.

While there I grew most of my own food in a large garden, put in a small orchard, and tended six hives of bees which produced honey that I sold at the farmers market in Perryville, Kentucky. To support myself I also cut tobacco plants for local farmers. My strength and physical energy allowed me to cut thirteen hundred sticks per day, each comprised of six plants on a four-foot wooden stick, at the rate of seven cents per stick—a good living which sustained me in the off-season. I built three other cabins and a root cellar thinking at the time that I would live there for the rest of my life.

Despite my solitary homestead, I got to experience interdependence and service to others in the form of two cooperative groups. One was a collection of food co-ops that spanned fives states, called the Federation of Ohio River Co-ops. In this organization each coop sent two representatives to bi-monthly meetings in Columbus, Ohio, and everyone had an opportunity to create and refine policies or to be in a representative role for their own local co-op. Together we practiced clear communication and representation, discussing each issue to arrive at a consensus vote. No action was taken on any issue until a consensus had been achieved. One of our meetings was held on my homestead, where 150 people trekked up my rocky creek bed, which was the access road to my land, to sleep in tents for three days. My co-op prepared and served everyone three meals a day during that long, joyful weekend.

The other organization I belonged to was called The Community Group. This was a cooperative of people in my area of central Kentucky who met one day each week, aiding one another in tasks such as digging gardens, building and painting homes, harvesting crops, or whatever other jobs needed to be done.

However, in May of 1978, I was listening to my battery-powered transistor radio and was tuned into WKQQ Radio Station in Lexington, Kentucky. They were airing an interview with Don Elkins and Carla L. Rueckert, and the topic was UFOs. Don and Carla were sharing some of the channeled information that they had received in the last couple of years as well as some data on UFO abductions that they had gathered in the twelve years they had been together.

They were sharing the philosophy of these UFO beings who said that we all were part of One Great Original Thought, or the One Infinite Creator. This great Thought not only produced the infinite creation that we all find ourselves in, but It included the idea that each of us contains the One Creator within our beings as we travel our spiritual journeys back into unity with the One Creator. These ideas shot  [G2] through me like bolts of lightning revealing what felt like the truth of my being.

I really had a strong desire to meet Don and Carla but had no idea how to go about it until an amazing synchronicity occurred. One day, at a meeting of my food-buying co-op, I was talking to a couple that lived on the other side of the same county that I lived in. Our conversation at this meeting, about five months after I’d heard the interview on the radio, was taking a spiritual turn and I mentioned the information I had heard Don and Carla talking about. In one of the happiest coincidences of my life, they said that they were part of Don and Carla’s meditation group and would be glad to introduce me to them.

For the next year I drove to Louisville every Sunday night to attend Don and Carla’s channeling meditation. At that time, they were channeling those of Latwii, a fifth-density planetary mind, and after the main message there was always a chance to ask questions. I was full of questions and became most impressed with the answers that Carla channeled.

I became good friends with Don and Carla, and in the summer of 1980, Morris Hoagland, a friend of Don and Carla’s, and I helped them  move from their apartment in the Highlands area of Louisville to a new location on the outskirts of Louisville that eventually became the house that we three would share during the Ra contact. After the move was complete, they asked me to join them in their work. However, I had been planning for a couple of years to move out to Yamhill, Oregon, to join Paul Shockley and the folks there who were channeling a source called Cosmic Awareness. I chose to move to Oregon due to my desire to further explore the high-quality information coming through the channel, but also because I was interested in conspiracy theories being discussed by the group at that time. It took a while for me to discover that conspiracy theories only served to distract me from the heart of my spiritual journey.

I had a good time out there, but when a chance to earn a lot of money came from one of the members of that group I took the weekend to meditate on what I should do. The money would come if I took the manager’s position in this fellow’s company that mined diatomaceous earth. I was concerned that this work would take me away from my spiritual path, and I hoped that meditation might help me to take the best path available to me at that time. That wish was certainly granted; it took only thirty seconds of meditation for a message to blaze across my inner field of vision like a comet: “Return to Louisville and join Don and Carla.”

I arrived back in Louisville on December 20, 1980, and three weeks later, on January 15, 1981, the Ra contact began. For the next three years and two months we had the joy, honor, and adventure of communicating with those of Ra who could answer any spiritually-oriented question we could ask as long as it didn’t infringe upon our free will. We knew without doubt that this contact with those of Ra was the pinnacle of our lives’ work.

This afternoon I drove over to southern Indiana to visit my good friend, Connie, who has been living in a care home for the last three and a half years due to two strokes she suffered in the summer of 2019. I always come half an hour or so after she has had lunch so we can share some cake and ice cream that I bring with me. Then I read Carla’s A Wanderer’s Handbook to her, and we stopped now and then to talk about one concept or another and had some good laughs at some of Carla’s humor. We always finish our time together with some meditation since Connie was a member of Carla’s and my meditation group for many years before she had the strokes.

Dwell Upon Your Christhood

I am the spirit of the living Christ and I greet you in the name of Jesus, that which is so evocative of the full consciousness of love.

Dwell upon your Christhood this day. For the Son of Man invited all to partake in the suffering, renewal, resurrection and transformation that lies beyond the point of deepest suffering, of completest loss.

Gaze within in awe and wonder at the Star of Hope lying above your own stable, that heart’s manger wherein lies the tiny, infant Christ within, that Christ which is powerful enough even in infanthood to raise all within to glory.

Rest back, out of the surface illusion of your daily life. Dive beneath those murky waters and find and acknowledge today your nature and your destiny. Then know that Christ has given into your hands the companion of that infant Christ within, and seek the grace and the peace of the living spirit of Christ in each and every day.

We leave you in the peace of Christ, both now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

[1] The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One, 49.2.



I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from the Prologue and the section on how Don chose to live the choice in his life:

How Don Chose to Live the Choice in His Life

Don’s lifetime of positive service began to take shape when he was seventeen. He was taking flying lessons at the Elkins/Mantell Flying school, and when Captain Mantell was killed while chasing a UFO on January 7, 1948,  Don became interested in UFOs and began what amounted to a spiritual journey that lasted his whole life. He was moved to question whether there was any end to the universe. Was there a God or a creative force that made everything? What was our place in the universe? Were we alone here?

Don had a profound interest in how things worked. He took all of the science courses available to him in high school. There was, however, the pesky matter of an athletic requirement, and Don opted for the alternative to team sports, which was the JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp) class. This qualified him to enlist in the National Guard at an elevated rank after graduation.

Unfortunately , amidst the Korean War, the National Guard was activated and young Don was deployed to Germany. Though Don advanced to a high rank, a couple stories illustrate his decidedly unwarlike nature.

One day, Don was plotting artillery range targets with his unit’s major. They were looking at a map on the hood of the major’s Jeep when a ladybug [G4] traversed the map. Offering his pencil to the ladybug for transport, Don released it at the base of a nearby tree. When he returned to the Jeep, his major looked at Don and said, “I hope you don’t feel that way about people.”

Another day,  Don and his colleagues were standing at attention to be inspected by the general, but the general was not satisfied with the way in which Don’s platoon had saluted him. As punishment, the general restricted the platoon to the base that weekend and they could not go into town. So, on Saturday night, Don gathered his platoon for some recreation. He led them in creating a comedic skit in which they learned how to salute properly, to the tune of much laughter.

To my memory, Don may have joined the JROTC not only to evade the athletic requirement but to pay for his higher education. He went on to earn two master’s degrees: one in engineering and one in mechanical engineering. Though he did not pursue a doctorate, his studies prepared him to teach physics at the University of Louisville for a decade. Beloved by his students for his intelligence, good nature, engaging lessons, and subtle sense of humor, Don developed quite a positive rapport them. They entertained themselves by testing his unflappability again and again with wild pranks, but they never succeeded in ruffling Don’s feathers.

However, all of his academic experience simply convinced Don that science did not have answers to his deeper questions. So, in the mid-1950s, he began to expand his research into the realms of the paranormal.

Don was able to make his initial in-depth study into this field thanks to learning how to conduct regressive hypnosis. This gave him the opportunity to explore the widely held belief of many Eastern cultures that reincarnation was the process by which all of humanity progressed in the evolution of the spiritual nature of our being, among other topics of investigation. He regressed over 200 people between 1955 and 1960 and found abundant evidence of each person having lived lives previous to the one that they were living then along with other data useful to his investigation[G8] . During the Ra contact Don asked Ra if regressive hypnosis was a service or disservice to the one being hypnotized and in 70.5, Ra replied:

Questioner: I have an extra little question that I want to throw in at this time. Is regressive hypnosis of an individual to reveal to them memories of previous incarnations a service or a disservice to them?

Ra: I am Ra. We scan your query and find you shall apply the answer to your future. This causes us to be concerned with the first distortion. However, the query is also general and contains an opportunity for us to express a significant point. Therefore, we shall speak.

There is an infinite range of possibility of service/disservice in the situation of time regression hypnosis, as you term this means of aiding memory. It has nothing to do with the hypnotist. It has only to do with the use which the entity so hypnotized makes of the information so gleaned. If the hypnotist desires to serve and if such a service is performed only upon sincere request, the hypnotist is attempting to be of service.

In tandem with his exploration of regressive hypnosis, and as an expression of his service to others, Don’s turned to “ufology”—the study UFOs—and extraterrestrial communication that Don felt might be of use to the evolution of humanity. In 1961, he became aware of information that was supposedly channeled or delivered by extraterrestrial entities to a meditation group in Detroit headed by Walt Rogers. Mr. Rogers reported having a face-to-face encounter with extraterrestrial entities who maintained a telepathic contact with him afterwards. They transmitted information of a spiritual nature to him and gave simple directions for starting a meditation group to receive such information on a regular basis.

Hal Price was a member of this group, and he was transferred from Ford Motor Company in Detroit to the Ford Motor Company in Louisville, where Don lived. Hal eventually came into contact with Don and shared this information that had been collected into what was referred to as The Brown Notebook. Eventually Don invited a dozen of his Introduction to Physics students to partake in an experiment to see if this process of receiving extraterrestrial information would work. One of the students got Don’s permission to bring his girlfriend, Carla Rueckert, to the group.

Don didn’t tell these meditators that his goal was extraterrestrial contact. He wanted to make a scientific experiment out of the process and see if contact would happen on its own. For the next couple of months there were a lot of mouths opening and closing and tongues making slurping sounds—as that was allegedly the “conditioning” that was used by ETs in those days–but there were no words being channeled. The scientific validity of the experiment was blown when Walt Rogers visited the group and channeled those of Hatonn, who said that although they had established contact with many of the members of the group, the participants were afraid to speak the words they saw in their minds because they thought that they were making them up.

After this session, the students—except for Carla—began to channel Hatonn regularly. Carla loved the messages but preferred silent meditation for herself. Don decided to gather as much of the channeled information as possible to add to his growing concept of how his basic questions might be answered. This experiment would continue for years, through Carla’s departure, marriage, divorce and eventual return.

One fateful day, when Carla returned to Don’s doorstep to participate once again in his meditations,  a romance took hold. Only after Carla’s divorce was final and Don had moved in did Carla learn something curious over dinner. Don confessed that he’d known since their first encounter that they’d wind up together, to which Carla responded, “Well why didn’t you tell me then?!” Don, never a fan of Carla’s first husband, shared that he was respecting Carla’s freedom, with the belief that her experiences would shape a better future.

Don then traveled with Carla to investigate UFO abductions and, in this way, they attempted to live their Choice of service to others together for twelve years before I joined them. By this time Don had begun to “put together the puzzle pieces” that represented his basic questions and the portions of the answers that he and Carla would find through the channeling process and investigating UFO abductions.

Don was tireless in his search for the truth. He was singularly focused on this service and, while he was not demonstrably affectionate or emotive, he conveyed a stable vibration of goodwill, gentle humor, and open-minded curiosity. He adored Carla and he loved people. Where Carla was full of faith, devotion, and passionate love, Don was rational, steady, and good-natured throughout his journey of seeking. Don’s consideration of others shone through any difficulty, even when, toward the end of his life, his mental health declined. Both Don and Carla were brilliant and intrepid seekers who chose to use those powerful qualities to be of service to others.

This afternoon I vacuumed the first floor of the house, and then I went outside and decided that it was too chilly to spend much time finishing the pulling of weeds out of the Moss Garden. So I took on a smaller job of pulling up about a dozen bricks in the brick walk that goes through the Moss Garden and putting sand under them. I originally put them in place a little lower than the surrounding bricks, so there has always been a puddle of water over them after rains. Now they are level with the surrounding bricks and will not create a pool of water that won’t make walking a wet and slippery experience there anymore.

The Winds Of Circumstance

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

Just as your angry oceans in the teeth of the gale, so are your hearts within you as you attempt to deal with the things which are of your mundane world. The angry ocean rages within each cell of any body which attempts to move against the direction of the prevailing winds.

And one who chides and discriminates against its own body or circumstances does so needlessly. For the wind of circumstance is not apart from the pilgrim but much influenced by the subconscious thoughts of that pilgrim.

And the ocean of illusion is molded more than can be seen on the surface by the thoughts which are created by worry and fear.

Seek, then, the positive, forward-moving winds of the spirit which lie within and beyond all mundane bodies and circumstances, so that the winds are no longer angry and, more and more, those things mundane may breathe the fresh breeze of spirit which comes to all who may be blessed by such grateful wind.

We leave you in the full blessing 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.


I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from the Prologue and the section on how Carla chose to live the Choice in her life:

How Carla Chose to Live the Choice in Her Life

From two to five years of age, Carla had profound mystical experiences. As a toddler she wore glasses that she would hang from the Venetian blinds next to her crib at naptime. One day, before falling asleep, she noticed a ray of sunlight that passed between the blinds and through the lens of her glasses. She suddenly found that she was able to slide out of her body on the sun beam, and was transported to a place that she would call her “Magic Garden.”

In this place, Carla watched a rose vine twining around her arm. She “saw” music in the air. Then she found herself surrounded by forest, face to face with Jesus. He looked as though he had walked a long way. His feet and sandals were dusty, his hair somewhat dirty and disheveled. Jesus never spoke a word, but when Carla looked into his eyes, she reported that she knew the meaning of unconditional love.

These experiences happened frequently when Carla took her naps, until the age of five when she told her Mom and Dad about them. They laughed and told her that she must have been dreaming because such things could not happen to a little girl. From that moment on, Carla never saw her Magic Garden again, but she was a follower of Jesus for the rest of her life. These experiences of leaving her body to go the Magic Garden were the first expression of this gift that Carla would eventually use in the Ra contact when she would leave her body, and then Ra could use it from the inner planes of Earth to answer Don’s questions.

Another pivotal moment for Carla came at the age of twelve. Due to her experience with Jesus in her early years she had wanted to be of service to others with all of her heart. Since she was something of a child prodigy, her mother and father thought that the best way to foster her high intelligence was to give her constructive criticism rather than compliments. Ra would later describe the incarnational lesson that this type of catalyst facilitated as a means of giving “without expectation of return”:

“Agreements were made prior to incarnation; the first, with the so-called parents and siblings of this entity. This provided the experiential catalyst for the situation of offering radiance of being without expectation of return.”[1]

By the time she was twelve, Carla had had so much of this constructive criticism that she felt that there was no way that she would ever be able to fulfill her life’s desire to be of service to others. So she prayed to die. Six months later her kidneys failed, leading to a near-death experience[AB1] . Once again, she found herself in a wooded setting, walking along a trail and up a hill. Beyond the hill she could see the very top of a temple, where she knew that her spiritual family was waiting for her.

Before she could get to the temple a voice came out of the air and told her that it was not her time to leave. She was told that she had chosen a difficult life and that, if she wanted to, she could divide it into two lives to make it easier to provide the service that she wanted so much to provide. That meant that she would have to go through another childhood. But Carla had had enough difficulty in her present childhood and didn’t want to have to go through another one. More importantly, knowing now beyond a shadow of a doubt that she was, in fact, of service to others, and that there she had more good work to do, she said that she would go back to her present life and seek that service. And so, she did.

Questioner: You are saying that the instrument itself then created the kidney problem at that time?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument’s desire to leave this density lowered the defenses of an already predisposed weak body complex, and an allergic reaction was so intensified as to cause the complications which distorted the body complex towards unviability.

The will of the instrument, when it found that there was, indeed, work to be done in service, was again the guiding factor, or complex of vibratory patterns, which kept the body complex from surrendering to dissolution of the ties which cause the vitality of life.[2]

Thank goodness for Carla’s will to serve!

As a young adult, Carla really followed her heart in ways that brought all kinds of adventure, including some difficult catalyst. Though she would eventually complete her undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Louisville and would go on earn a Master’s Degree in Library Service, Carla dropped out of college for a period of time, wishing to experience the challenges of giving and receiving love in “the real world,” so to speak. During that time, she actually worked in a sleazy bar, and earned the respect of patrons and coworkers alike by listening to their troubles, offering heartfelt counseling, and entertaining them with a cappella songs when the house band would break between sets.

She had a lovely singing voice, and her first marriage was to a man who wished to marry her only so that they could take a job as the opening act for the famous American folk music group Peter, Paul, and Mary[AB2] ;  he viewed traveling and living together without being married as being as “immoral.” (He eventually changed his mind about going on tour before they even began.)

Though Carla herself said, “my motivation for marriage was not love but ambition,” she chose to keep her promise to her husband despite his many affairs. [AB3] It was a difficult time during which Carla navigated the catalyst offered by this situation and made every effort to open her heart and give love without any expectation of return. As it turned out, her husband eventually asked for a divorce in 1968, under one condition: that she would return to Louisville, KY, and “be with her people.” Carla obliged—though she did not heed his mother’s encouragement to “take his credit card and run up as much of a bill as you want!”[AB4] 

[J5] [AB6] [G7] 

It was a difficult time during which Carla navigated the catalyst offered by this situation and made every effort to open her heart and give love without any expectation of return. In the midst of his final affair, he chose to move to Vancouver, British Columbia, to evade the Vietnam War draft, and his mistress had come along. To add insult to injury, when he was unable to find a job, he asked Carla to move to Vancouver to support them.

Carla believed in the notion that one’s marriage vows really were “for better or for worse.” To this end, she left Louisville to be near her husband and to attempt to honor those vows. She took a wonderful job as Head Librarian at Vancouver’s Simon Fraser University, where she had thirteen employees to supervise.

And then, out of the blue, her husband asked for a divorce and insisted that Carla return to her hometown “to be with her people.” Coming to terms with the situation, Carla obliged. Though she left her cherished job reluctantly, she soon found herself relieved to be back in Louisville, no longer bound to an unhealthy relationship.

Eventually Carla rejoined Don’s weekly meditation group. The two grew closer, and the day after her divorce was final, Don moved into her apartment near downtown Louisville. All these rocky years had led her back home to Don, but this time Carla was sure of where she belonged.

Within a couple of weeks of their living together Don and Carla began to write their first book, The Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweetwater. It was a magical experience in that they saw the characters and plot develop in their minds as they sat together on the couch, Carla’s head on Don’s lap as he held a tape recorder in his hand to record the plot and characters.

As they would one day realize, this book was prophetic regarding many people that Don and Carla would meet and various activities that they would be involved in throughout their sixteen years together. Ra later confirmed this during the contact:

“When the commitment was made between two of this group to work for the betterment of the planetary sphere, this commitment activated a possibility/probability vortex of some strength. The experience of generating this volume was unusual in that it was visualized as if watching the moving picture.

Time had become available in its present-moment form. The scenario of the volume went smoothly until the ending of the volume. You could not end the volume, and the ending was not visualized as the entire body of the material but was written or authored.

This is due to the action of free will in all of the creation. However, the volume contains a view of significant events, both symbolically and specifically, which you saw under the influence of the magnetic attraction which was released when the commitment was made and full memory of the dedication of this, what you may call, mission restored.”[3]

By 1974, most of the fellows from Don’s meditation and channeling experiment had graduated college and left the group in order to get married or get jobs. It was at this time that Don asked Carla if she would be willing to learn how to channel so that the experiment to receive better and better spiritually-oriented information through channeling could continue. She agreed and received channeling instruction from Hatonn via Don’s channeling[G8] . (Hatonn [G9] was the fourth-density planetary mind that had begun channeling to Don’s experimental group in 1962. These channelings eventually attracted a number of folks to join in Sunday night meditations, which then became another service of L/L Research. Later, Carla would channel another planetary mind by the name of Latwii that was of fifth-density origin.)

Carla would also travel with Don as he flew a small plane around the country to investigate UFO abductions. In 1977 they self-published Secrets of the UFO, and in 1980 they published a cassette tape of recorded messages from supposed extraterrestrials called Messages From the UFO.  Those were some of the highlights of Don and Carla’s work in the twelve years that they were together before I joined them in December of 1980.

Throughout her early life, Carla had to experience many roles—student, stage performer, devoted wife, and career librarian—in order to heed each desire and call to service, answering always to the heart of her being. Her passionate heart and her faith in humanity led her on all kinds of adventures. Some were difficult and disappointing, but, in each case, she applied herself to seeing love in those around her, and to viewing these experiences as precious opportunities to grow and to become more loving by the day. In 96.2, Ra affirmed Carla’s desire to always be of service to others:

This entity has an habitual attitude which is singular; that is, when there is some necessity for action the entity is accustomed to analyzing the catalyst in terms of service and determining a course.

The early challenges she faced, combined with the choices she made to love with abandon and keep going wherever her heart led her, eventually led Carla to Don. She was able, in love and faith, to embark with him upon an unusual journey, living more and more into her mystical nature, and venturing into the unknown. This would lead not only to the Ra contact and to our partnership, but to a lifetime of living and sharing the Law of One.

This afternoon I went outside and began weeding the Moss Garden since the weather was finally warm enough to do so. Those little tufts of weeds that look like grass had grown since the last time that I weeded the Moss Garden, and I was able to finish half the job, and I hope to finish the job tomorrow.

The First Item On The Agenda

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

Stand upon the rocky crag and gaze out over the broad land of this precious day. You have the long view now. Perhaps you have an agenda, a list, a plan for the day. But have you placed first the divine order of love in action?

Love in action creates a system of natural laws. Any person with an agenda which does not recognize first the source of inspiration which makes all things beautiful is going to experience a day less blessed, less full of love, and less inspired.

As you set your agenda, let your first item be to seek first the natural order of the divine Father, for this allows the inspiration, the breath of the soul, to make vital that inner self which knows so much more than the agenda-maker who sat upon the bare rock of a morning and only gazed at his agenda and not at the divine beauty of the larger view and the natural order.

Let peace flow through your veins as heavenly blood. Let inspiration be your heavenly bread. And let your day be blessed with inspiration and peace, as you know that you are doing the Father’s will for you today.

We leave you in that love and peace, now and forever. 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.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from the Prologue and the concept of Don, Carla, and Jim living The Choice:


We humans take greater responsibility for our behavior as we mature emotionally and spiritually. This happens earlier for some of us than for others, but there’s no getting around it: at some point in our evolution throughout many lifetimes[AB1] , each of us begins to notice whether our thoughts and deeds are selfish or unselfish. We become aware of a personal preference to love and serve all others, or to love and serve only the self, and we begin to bend our will toward the chosen path.

The third density of evolution in which we now find ourselves, what you could see as the third of seven grades in a school of souls, is a time for awakening to our spiritual nature and making this Choice. Each incarnation in this density is a chance to awaken anew, to make this Choice, and to commit ever more strongly to a path of service to the One Infinite Creator. For those of us who wish to serve others—presumably many who read this book—this manifests as  a yearning to peer through the illusion of separation, to begin to grasp the unity of all things, and to love all as One, ourselves included but not set above other-selves. Though there is no universal way of describing this phenomenon, the Choice is the defining feature of our third-density experience. As Ra says, it is “the axis upon which the creation turns,” while “the remainder of the densities is continuous refining of the Choice.”

Carla, Don, and Jim: Living the Choice

I would like to share some major life events that illustrate how Don, Carla and I chose to be of service to others in our lives. Some of these things happened long before we met one another, but I believe that the choices we made in certain pivotal moments helped to bring us together so that the Ra contact could one day come to pass. It is amazing to look back and see how it all came together. I do believe that in each moment that a seeker makes conscious, polarized choices, a wealth of opportunity to continue along the chosen path is drawn into the life experience. This phenomenon seemed to be at work with Don, Carla, and me and Ra even stated this general principle in 94.12:

Questioner: It seems to me that the Experience of the Mind would act in such a way as to change the nature of the veil so that catalyst would be filtered so as to be more acceptable in the bias that is increasingly chosen by the entity. For instance, if the entity had chosen the right-hand path the Experience of the Mind would change the permeability of the veil to accept more and more positive catalyst, and also the other would be true for accepting more negative if the left-hand path were the one that was repeatedly chosen. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not only correct but there is a further ramification. As the entity increases in experience it shall, more and more, choose positive interpretations of catalyst if it is upon the service-to-others path and negative interpretations of catalyst if its experience has been along the service-to-self path.

Early this morning I had an appointment with my foot doctor to see how the stress fracture in my left foot is doing. It has been six weeks now that I have been wearing the big boot. He said that the calcium continues to form around the fracture, but he also said that I need to wear the boot for another three weeks. Then I will be done with it. I ran some errands on the way home, and my first stop was at the Rainbow Blossom Health Food Store to buy some tea. My next stop was a Walgreen’s Drug Store to buy some ice cream, Tylenol, and moisturizing cream. My third stop was at The Home Depot where I bought some netting to put over some of my flowers to keep the deer from eating them.

This afternoon I went outside and spread some of that netting over the day lily leaves that are coming up now. Then I used my hedge clippers to trim back the giant hibiscus stalks to a shorter size. Then I used the hedge clippers on the three areas in the back yard that have the tall striped grasses that I cut back last week. I also shortened them so that they look better. My last job was to take some of the long stems of the climbing rose in the back yard and spread them onto the other two lattice works of the three-sized trellis so that the entire trellis can become covered by the climbing rose even though the other two sides of the trellis no longer have any climbing roses.

Realization And Confusion

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

Woe to the pilgrim who sits down upon the way, having decided that the wisdom which has come to him shall be the basis from which he shall view the world. For realization cannot be attained. It can only be accepted.

Realization cannot be retained, but only experienced anew in each infinitely small moment.

Thus, it is the pilgrim who walks on with appreciation both for realizations and confusions; who walks the straight and narrow path placing one foot before another, not because of the surety of the point of view but because of the faith of one who laughs at unseen steps, knowing that the path is protected, as is all creation, by the very nature of the creation of love, which is the ultimate reality.

We leave you in the peace of alpha and omega, the joy 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.





I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Now that I have completed the work of expanding the concepts of Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work, I want to go back to the beginning of Living the Law of One 102: The Outer Work and look at what may be a new outline that Austin found yesterday after looking at the combined outline that Carla made for 101, 102, and 103. It seems that she got suggestions from a couple of friends back then as to what a good outline might contain. However, this new outline only contains the names of the chapters, and there are twelve chapters instead of the eight that I have been working with in the past couple of years. So I went through each chapter of 102 and listed all of the section topics of each chapter. Then I was able to find where these twelve chapter topics are located in 102. As a result of this discovery I can continue on with my original intention to go through Chapters Two through Four to be sure that I have made each chapter as good as I can make it. I have already done that with Chapters Five through Eight.


This book has come into being because I was fortunate in finding the outline for it and for 103 a couple of years ago. Carla had written outlines for both Living the Law of One 102: The Outer Work and Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work back around 2009. She had also made a start in writing the book itself. She was able to complete a Preface and the first chapter of 102. In the intervening years I had forgotten about them, so I was very surprised and grateful to find her initial efforts to write 102. It took me a couple of years to find the desire to tackle the job of actually attempting to write the books. I prepared myself for this task by re-reading Carla’s Living the Law of One 101: The Choice to discover the way that Carla would approach various topics in a logical yet heartfelt way. She was always so good at balancing love and wisdom in her written and spoken communications, and I have attempted to do the same in my efforts to write 102 and 103.

Carla was such a good writer and had such a personal way of communicating with her readers that I felt it would be hard to duplicate her work or come anywhere close to it. But I finally decided that I needed to give it a try, and the more that I worked on the writing the more excited and inspired I got. It was also good to know that I would have the help of Diana Roy in editing the book as she had done such a marvelous job in helping Gary to edit A Concept Guide. And I knew that Gary Bean and Austin Bridges would be very helpful team members in editing the book and undertaking the process of bringing it to publication. Now that the editing process has begun again, and my new editing team is composed of Austin Bridges and Joanna Burns.

So this book has been a team effort guided primarily by Carla’s outline and her always open heart. I cannot thank her enough for beginning this project over twenty years ago. It is part of a very large living legacy of spiritual material that continues to inspire seekers of truth the world over. I hope that this book makes her smile.

Following is the original Preface that Carla wrote in 2013.

This report on the philosophy of the Confederation of Angels and Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator is the second volume of the Living the Law of One series. It builds on the first volume’s concepts. Therefore I reproduce here the eleven basic principles of The Law of One which I discussed in the first volume, 101: The Choice:

1.The creation is unitary. Its nature is unconditional love. We are all one. We are all literally created by love. We live in an illusion made of light and energy or vibration rather than the solidity we see with our physical eyes. We are Players on a Gameboard playing a Game of life. We have complete free will. We can always choose how to respond to the things that come our way.

2. Our Earth world’s Gameboard is in an illusion which works by polarity. The two poles are service to others and service to self. We become Players by making the choice to polarize. The first choice we make to be of service to others is our beginning as positive Players. Every succeeding choice increases our polarity. Using a physical analogy, we need to polarize sufficiently to achieve escape velocity.

3. We have minds which belong to our physical bodies. We also have consciousness, which is the environment of our spiritual selves and our energy bodies. We use both our minds and our consciousness as Players. We sharpen our perceptions so that we may make better, more polarized choices every day.

4. As Players we work primarily with our energy bodies. Our goal is to keep their chakras unblocked, letting the Creator’s infinite energy flow through the system freely. The first energy center or chakra is the red-ray chakra. As we deal with red-ray issues like sexuality and survival, we work to keep our red-ray chakras clear.

5. The orange-ray chakra deals with relationships with the self and others. As Players we work with our catalyst to keep distractions such as anger and shame from blocking the orange-ray energy center. Our human, yellow-ray density is nested within, or built atop, the orange-ray density of animals, plants, and all biologically living things. We are stewards of our Earth as well as its beloved children.

6. The yellow-ray energy center deals with formal relationships such as marriage, children, and the work environment. Players work to keep their yellow-ray chakras clear of blockage due to catalyst having to do with these relationships. Often such catalyst has to do with the desire to possess or be possessed.

7. We enter our green-ray chakra, our hearts, when we come to know ourselves, accept ourselves and fall in love with ourselves just as we are. This gives us the eyes of love we need to accept, forgive and love others. If we can love unconditionally while making choices for service to others, we will graduate at Harvest.

8. Our blue-ray chakra concerns true communication. Communication is a sacred activity. To keep our blue-ray energy centers unblocked, we get real with ourselves and others, telling our truth with honesty and compassion. Listening is a blue-ray skill, and we as Players strive to hear each other with respect and accuracy.

9. The indigo-ray energy center is the home of faith. Players keep this chakra open by refraining from self-doubt. The indigo- and blue-ray centers are also used by Players to access the gateway to intelligent infinity to do Lighthouse-Level work. We keep the whole energy body clear by doing balancing exercises daily.

10. We Players doing such types of Lighthouse-Level work as meditation, prayer, journaling and increasing our faith employ the discipline of our personalities. We learn to see all of life as sacred and all of our actions as potentially magical. We develop the ability to set our intention and to create changes in our level of consciousness.

11. Players can use the gateway to intelligent infinity for advanced Lighthouse-Level work such as channeling, healing and sacred sex. Working with the light so closely, Players may experience psychic greetings. We can protect ourselves by closing the circuits in our energy bodies and by asking for help from spirit.

With Living the Law of One 102, we take up a more detailed discussion of how to work with our energy bodies as we deal with the catalyst of the first three chakras. That catalyst is the “grist for the mill” of our experience, as we deal with the lower chakras’ energy expenditures.

If at any time I refer to a concept which baffles you, please refer back to this Preface, and if you are still puzzled, seek within the pages of 101 for the information you need.

I hope you enjoy the ride through this look at our catalyst, our emotions and the wide world of our outer work.

This morning I ran some errands with my first stop being at Feeder’s Supply where I bought some cat food and some bird seed. My second stop was at Cleaning Concepts where I picked up my vacuum cleaner that they had repaired.

This afternoon I went outside and used the hoe to weed the spirea garden beside the fish pond. Then I went around the yard and picked up more small tree limbs and put them in a garbage can for yard waste pickup Thursday.

The Power Of Choice

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

Gaze at time. Gaze at the time that you have to spend within your next day. Gaze at the “talents,” the riches, of hours and minutes that you hold now at the beginning of the day in your cupped palm. Gaze at hours to fill and spend in any way which delights your soul, your mind, and your heart and know the power of choice.

Gaze now at those things not held in the hand, those things held by others’ hands and hearts, those things quite out of one’s control. In spending the minted money of God’s time it is known by the buyer what is intended to be bought in terms of energy expended upon relationships and towards cooperation in work and planning, but it is not known how it shall be received.

Know that your spending plan of time shall not be judged in respect of those things which could not be controlled by the self. Rather, the spending of your precious time shall be adjudged according to the intentions for service.

Know, then, that the riches and consolation of time in the Holy Spirit of the living Christ may, together, move forward with each precious minute and hour so that one spends it in such a way as to magnify time and the wisdom and consolation of grace. May you see the plenitude of your power in Christ! And may you spend wisely, this day and every day.

We leave you in the grace which alone may contemplate true peace and selfless service, 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.


I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 103 quote today comes from Chapter Seven and the section on the passport to the next octave of experience:

The Passport to the Next Octave of Experience

As I mentioned in the last section, our violet-ray energy center is the indicator of the true nature of our being and the quality that is assessed during the harvesting process to see what our future placement within the third or fourth density will be. There is also another most inspiring way that we can utilize the violet-ray energy center. When we have been able to activate the indigo-ray energy center and activate the spirit as a shuttle for contact with intelligent infinity, the violet-ray energy center is also where this contact is made as Ra stated in 48.7:

Having accepted that an harvestable or nearly harvestable entity will be working from this green-ray springboard, one may then posit that the experiences in the remainder of the incarnation will be focused upon activation of the primary blue ray of freely given communication; of indigo ray, that of freely shared intelligent energy; and, if possible, moving through this gateway, the penetration of violet-ray intelligent infinity. This may be seen to be manifested by a sense of the consecrate, or hallowed, nature of everyday creations and activities.

As preparation for contact with our higher energy centers we need to balance our lower three energy centers of the red ray having to do with survival and sexual reproduction, the orange ray that deals with our basic sense of acceptance of ourselves and our various eccentricities, and then our yellow-ray energy center that represents our blending of our individual selves with others in order to function in groups. We then look to the opening of our green-ray energy centers in all compassionate love. This opening of our heart chakra results when we are able to see and love all as the Creator.

At this point of the opening of our heart chakras Ra said that we then may spend the rest of our incarnations attempting to open the higher energy centers and “springboardinto the blue-ray energy center of “freely given communication to others and from others. From there our goal would be to activate the indigo-ray energy center of “freely shared intelligent energyand then activate the spirit as a shuttle to contact intelligent infinity and experience the “hallowed, nature of everyday creations and activities.” In 15.12, Ra gave us an idea of how to activate the indigo-ray energy center:

The next center is the pineal or indigo-ray center. Those blocked in this center may experience a lessening of the influx of intelligent energy due to manifestations which appear as unworthiness. This is that of which you spoke. As you can see, this is but one of many distortions due to the several points of energy influx into the mind/body/spirit complex. The indigo-ray balancing is quite central to the type of work which revolves about the spirit complex, which has its influx then into the transformation or transmutation of third density to fourth density, it being the energy center receiving the least-distorted outpourings of love/light from intelligent energy and having also the potential for the key to the gateway of intelligent infinity.

The key to unblocking and balancing the indigo-ray energy center then is using any catalyst that we experience that makes us feel unworthy. Such catalyst is very likely to come from pre-incarnative programming and appears in our lives at an early age when friends, family, or teachers tell us that we are not good enough, smart enough, tough enough, or in some way fall short in being worthy of praise instead of criticism. The conscious seeker of truth that becomes aware of this programming can use the balancing technique to balance this feeling of unworthiness each time that it is perceived. This may well be the work of a lifetime, or much of it, but the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life will keep doing this work until it is done without a doubt. In 5.2, Ra gave the basic description of how this balancing can be done:

To begin to master the concept of mental discipline it is necessary to examine the self. The polarity of your dimension must be internalized. Where you find patience within your mind you must consciously find the corresponding impatience and vice versa. Each thought that a being has, has in its turn an antithesis. The disciplines of the mind involve, first of all, identifying both those things of which you approve and those things of which you disapprove within yourself, and then balancing each and every positive and negative charge with its equal. The mind contains all things. Therefore, you must discover this completeness within yourself.

I would like to add that the balancing of catalyst is done at the end of the day in meditation where you review the day to see what catalyst you experienced that took you off of your center of love. Both positive feelings and negative feelings need to be balanced such as patience and impatience, anger and self- acceptance, trauma and joy, etc. The basic goal is to achieve the overall feeling of love as Ra said in 42.5,

Balance is not indifference but rather the observer not blinded by any feelings of separation but rather fully imbued with love.

So the first step is to relive the experience that took you off of your center of love. Then you magnify it in your mind until it is huge. Then you briefly image the opposite emotion. The let that emotion get larger by itself until it is as large as the beginning emotion. The you accept yourself for having both of these ways for the Creator to know Itself and for you to know yourself. The basic principle of this balancing procedure is found in 104.2:

It is the way of distortion that in order to balance a distortion one must accentuate it. 

Eventually, throughout many years of balancing our catalyst we become 360-degree beings, the One Infinite Creator. In 74.11, Ra added a kind of synopsis as to how this process of balancing works in the larger sense of the discipline of our personality and eventually allowing us to become the Creator, a 360-degree being:

Questioner: Now, what I am trying to get at is how these disciplines affect the energy centers and the power, shall I say, of the white magician. Could you, will you tell me how that works?

Ra: I am Ra. The heart of the discipline of the personality is threefold. One, know yourself. Two, accept yourself. Three, become the Creator.

The third step is that step which, when accomplished, renders one the most humble servant of all, transparent in personality and completely able to know and accept other-selves. In relation to the pursuit of the magical working the continuing discipline of the personality involves the adept in knowing itself, accepting itself, and thus clearing the path towards the great indigo gateway to the Creator. To become the Creator is to become all that there is. There is then no personality in the sense with which the adept begins its learn/teaching. As the consciousness of the indigo ray becomes more crystalline, more work may be done; more may be expressed from intelligent infinity.

Ra suggested that the contact with intelligent infinity is one in which the seeker will experience unspeakable joy as all illusions are dissolved and the sacred nature of each moment is experienced. When such contact with intelligent infinity is made it is most likely that the seeker of truth, having found that truth in the most basic sense of unity with the Creator and the creation, will dedicate itself to the service to others in whatever ways are possible for the rest of the life path. In 54.31, Ra described the general areas of service which the seeker will have available to it after contact with intelligent infinity:

Again, the violet emanation is, in this context, a resource from which, through indigo, intelligent infinity may be contacted. The radiation thereof will not be violet ray but rather green, blue, or indigo depending upon the nature of the type of intelligence which infinity has brought through into discernible energy.

The green-ray type of radiation in this case is the healing, the blue-ray the communication and inspiration, the indigo that energy of the adept which has its place in faith.

The healing work that would utilize the heart chakra would give the seeker the ability to open the protective shell of the red and violet energies that surrounds each of us and holds our minds, bodies, and spirits in whatever form of health/disease is our current state of being. When this red/violet protective armoring is interrupted the one to be healed then has the opportunity to accept a new state of being that would reflect having been healed. So the healer never actually heals anyone but offers those seeking healing the chance to heal themselves.

The blue-ray communication with others becomes a means by which the entity functions like unto a co-Creator and is able to share this enhanced nature of its own being with others as its eyes of honesty and clarity look upon a new world. At this point the clear communication can also partake of that which becomes enhanced to the point of inspiration. The words and concepts expressed reach more and more clearly into the unity of the creation and seeing all people as facets of the Creator. The love in every moment and the creation being made of light is shared as a reality for all.

Ra then said that the indigo-ray manifestation of contact with intelligent infinity “has its place in faith.” I take this to mean that the adept would be able to create changes in its consciousness at will, much like the white magician. In its higher manifestations the healing of the self of distorted thought forms could be accomplished by exercising the faith and will to change whatever thoughts or beliefs that one would wish to change to a form more congruent with a unified creation. Ra said it so well in 75.23:

The adept then begins to do less of the preliminary, or outer, work having to do with function, and begins to effect the inner work which has to do with being. As the adept becomes a more and more consciously crystallized entity it gradually manifests more and more of that which it always has been since before time: that is, the One Infinite Creator.

In effect, what we are doing as we access the intelligent infinity of the violet-ray energy center is returning to that place of complete unity with the one Creator that existed “before time,” before the creation of the universe, before the Creator decided to know Itself, before there was anything except intelligent infinity. We have lived the Law of One, and we have rejoined the One from which we all have come. Then, when we come down from this mountaintop we seek to serve the One in all ever more faithfully, ever more lovingly, and for the rest of our Earthly lives.

This completes Living the Law of One 103: The Inner Work.

This morning I ran errands with my first stop being at Cleaning Concepts where I took my vacuum cleaner for repair. My second stop was a First Watch where I had a blueberry pancake for brunch. My last stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market where I bought some food for myself.

The Invocation Of Love

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

Each day you go forth to run the straight race, to move in rhythmic grace through the workaday world. Each day you begin with highest hopes and many days spin themselves out like rainbows, a blessing to yourself and others, seemingly effortless, peaceful and beautiful.

Yet, we would ask you this day to remember that phrase, “Lift up thine eyes unto the hills. Whence cometh thy help? Thy help is in the name of the Lord.”

Perhaps this particular day there may be part of that grace of everyday life that seems heavy and less than pleasant. Lift up your eyes. Remember whence help truly comes. It is in the lifting of the viewpoint, in the invocation of love, unity, consolation and peace.

Let this be a comfort unto you when it is needed, for that consolation lies all about each seeker, to be touched into lightly in the happy times and to be sought without worry and with sureness of everlasting safety in difficult moments.

We leave you in peace and 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.


I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the concept of the harvest:

The Harvest

The harvest into the fourth density of love and understanding is a process that has been going on here on our Earth since about 1935, according to what Ra had to say in 40.10-11, in 1981:

Questioner: What, assuming that we are, our vibration— I am assuming this vibration started increasing about between twenty and thirty years ago. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. The first harbingers of this were approximately forty-five of your years ago, the energies vibrating more intensely through the forty-year period preceding the final movement of vibratory matter, shall we say, through the quantum leap, as you would call it.

Questioner: Starting then, forty-five years ago, and taking the entire increase in vibration that we will experience in this density change, approximately what percentage of the way through this increase of vibration are we right now?

Ra: I am Ra. The vibratory nature of your environment is true-color green. This is at this time heavily over-woven with the orange ray of planetary consciousness. However, the nature of quanta is such that the movement over the boundary is that of discrete placement of vibratory level.

This means that each person that has gone through the process of death at this time is also given a chance to make the harvest into the fourth density. All of Earth’s eight billion entities are here on Earth now because they have the greatest chance to make this harvest or graduation due to what Ra called their “seniority of vibration” as Ra described in 17.43:

The seniority by vibration is the preferential treatment, shall we say, which follows the ways of the Law of One which encourages harvestable individuals. Each individual becoming aware of the time of harvest and the need, on a self-level, to bend mind, body, and spirit towards the learn/teaching of these lessons, is given priority in order that this entity may have the best possible chance, shall we say, of succeeding in this attempt.

This type of determining who will be able to incarnate on Earth is created by the progress that has been made by all entities that would like to incarnate on Earth. Those who have made the most progress in polarizing their consciousness either in service to others or in service to self are given priority over those entities who have not made as much progress. Since we are now in the time of harvest it makes sense that those entities who have the best chance of making the harvest, ascension, or graduation would have the opportunity to do so rather than allowing entities who have too much work to do to make this harvest to incarnate at this time. Apparently, this process of incarnation by seniority of vibration has been going on since the first person in the 75,000 year master cycle became consciously aware of the process of evolution. In 51.1, Ra gave an inspiring description of how the harvest takes place for each person that makes the transition from its Earthly body to have the opportunity to walk into the light:

 Questioner: As we begin this session, Book III of The Law Of One, there are a couple of questions, one of fairly non-transient importance and one which I consider to be a bit transient, that I feel obligated to ask because of communication with others.

The first is just clearing up final points about harvest for our friend Leo Sprinkle. And I was wondering if there is a supervision over the harvest, and if so, why this supervision is necessary, and how it works since an entity’s harvestability is the violet ray? Is it necessary for entities to supervise the harvest, or is it automatic? Could you answer this please?

Ra: I am Ra. In time of harvest there are always harvesters. The fruit is formed as it will be, but there is some supervision necessary to ensure that this bounty is placed as it should be, without the bruise or the blemish.

There are those of three levels watching over harvest.

The first level is planetary and that which may be called angelic. This type of guardian includes the mind/body/spirit complex totality or higher self of an entity and those inner plane entities which have been attracted to this entity through its inner seeking.

The second class of those who ward this process are those of the Confederation who have the honor/duty of standing in the small places at the edge of the steps of light/love so that those entities being harvested will not, no matter how confused or unable to make contact with their higher self, stumble and fall away for any reason other than the strength of the light. These Confederation entities catch those who stumble and set them aright so that they may continue into the light.

The third group watching over this process is that group you call the Guardians. This group is from the octave above our own and serves in this manner as light-bringers. These Guardians provide the precise emissions of light/love in exquisitely fastidious disseminations of discrimination so that the precise light/love vibration of each entity may be ascertained.

Thus the harvest is automatic in that those harvested will respond according to that which is unchangeable during harvest. That is the violet-ray emanation. However, these helpers are around to ensure a proper harvesting so that each entity may have the fullest opportunity to express its violet-ray selfhood.

Ra called the first level of entities that assist in the harvest angelic, and this designation applied to those entities that we would call our Higher Selves as well as our mind/body/spirit complex totality, (which is like our Higher Self’s Higher Self) as well as special friends, you might call them, who have been drawn to the entity in transition according to how it manifested its inner seeking in the incarnation just completed.

The second group of entities that aid in the harvesting process are of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the One Infinite Creator. Ra said that it was their job just to stand by, out of the way, and be sure that each entity moving through the process of walking into the light would have the fullest opportunity to walk as far as possible into the light without stumbling or becoming confused as to what was occurring. If any entity did stumble and fall away from the light, the Confederation entity would aid the transitioning entity in becoming stabilized so that it could continue the harvesting process.

Then Ra made a very interesting statement in describing the third group of entities aiding in the graduation process as Guardians, but these are not the Guardians of the Council of Saturn who help to enforce the quarantine that has surrounded Earth for its entire 75,000 year third-density experience. These Guardians are from the next octave, according to Ra, and their task is that of being light-bringers. These Guardians provide the light that entities going through the harvesting process walk into in order to have their violet ray assessed to determine whether they can withstand the power of the light of the fourth density, and also what level of the fourth density they will begin their next incarnations in. If they cannot withstand the light of the lowest level of the fourth density, then they will choose another third-density planet to incarnate upon to try again to make the harvest there.

We had already discovered that it is the violet ray that determines the harvestability of a person, so Don wanted to know if there was any supervision necessary during the harvesting procedure. Ra said that each entity that proceeds through the harvest is given the attention of three different levels of advanced beings to be sure that each entity walking into the light will have the fullest opportunity to express its violet-ray selfhood, the true identity of the entity. In 52.12, Ra gave us a little more information about these entities who provide the light that assesses the ability of an entity to graduate into the fourth density of love and understanding:

Questioner: Thank you. In mentioning, in the previous session, the harvest, you mentioned the light-bringers from the octave. Am I to understand that those who provide the light for the gradation of graduation are of an octave above the one we experience? Could you tell me more about these light-bringers, who they are, etc.?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last full query of this working.

This octave density of which we have spoken is both omega and alpha, the spiritual mass of the infinite universes becoming one Central Sun, or Creator, once again. Then is born a new universe, a new infinity, a new Logos which incorporates all that the Creator has experienced of Itself. In this new octave there are also those who wander. We know very little across the boundary of octave except that these beings come to aid our octave in its Logos completion.

In 13.23, Ra gave us their estimation that the harvest on planet Earth will be a small harvest because so few entities have been able to open their hearts in love for the Creator in their other selves:

Questioner: How does a third-density planet become a fourth-density [planet]?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last full question.

The fourth density is, as we have said, as regularized in its approach as the striking of a clock upon the hour. The space/time of your solar system has enabled this planetary sphere to spiral into space/time of a different vibrational configuration. This causes the planetary sphere to be able to be molded by these new distortions. However, the thought-forms of your people during this transition period are such that the mind/body/spirit complexes of both individual and societies are scattered throughout the spectrum instead of becoming able to grasp the needle, shall we say, and point the compass in one direction.

Thus, the entry into the vibration of love, sometimes called by your people the vibration of understanding, is not effective with the present societal complex. Thus, the harvest shall be such that many will repeat the third-density cycle. The energies of your wanderers, your teachers, and your adepts at this time are all bent upon increasing the harvest. However, there are few to harvest.

So the time of harvest is here because our 75,000 year master cycle of the third density is nearing its completion. Our Earth is now engulfed within the fourth-density vibrations, but the vibrations of Earth’s people are scattered throughout the spectrum of the orange-, yellow-, and green-ray energies. Ideally, the entire population of Earth would all be ready for graduation and be able to “grasp the needle, shall we say, and point the compass in one direction,” and choose the positive polarization of service to others. Wanderers, adepts, and teachers of spiritual principles are all here to try to increase the harvest, but it looks like the harvest will be small. However, there is always one bright and shining possibility that Ra spoke of in 65.12:

We may note at this point while you ponder the possibility/probability vortices, that although you have many, many items which cause distress and thus offer seeking and service opportunities, there is always one container in that store of peace, love, light, and joy. This vortex may be very small, but to turn one’s back upon it is to forget the infinite possibilities of the present moment. Could your planet polarize towards harmony in one fine, strong moment of inspiration? Yes, my friends. It is not probable; but it is ever possible.

In 40.8, Don asked Ra how long our harvest would last:

Questioner: Then what will be the time of transition on this planet from third to fourth density?

Ra: I am Ra. This is difficult to estimate due to the uncharacteristic anomalies of this transition. There are at this space/time nexus beings incarnate which have begun fourth-density work. However, the third-density climate of planetary consciousness is retarding the process. At this particular nexus the possibility/probability vortices indicate somewhere between 100 and 700 of your years as transition period. This cannot be accurate due to the volatility of your peoples at this space/time.

Of course we are all hopeful of making the harvest or graduation, and it is a very natural question to ask just what the fourth density of love and understanding might be like. Don put that question to Ra in 16.50:

Questioner: Thank you. Is it possible for you to give a small description of the conditions in fourth density?

Ra: I am Ra. We ask you to consider, as we speak, that there are no words for positively describing fourth density. We can only explain what is not and approximate what is. Beyond fourth density our ability grows more limited still until we become without words.

That which fourth density is not: it is not of words, unless chosen. It is not of heavy chemical vehicles for body complex activities. It is not of disharmony within self. It is not of disharmony within peoples. It is not within limits of possibility to cause disharmony in any way.

Approximations of positive statements: it is a plane of a type of bipedal vehicle which is much denser and more full of life. It is a plane wherein one is aware of the thoughts of other-selves. It is a plane where one is aware of the vibrations of other-selves. It is a plane of compassion and understanding of the sorrows of third density. It is a plane striving towards wisdom or light. It is a plane wherein individual differences are pronounced, although automatically harmonized by group consensus.

Though Ra was very desirous of responding to Don’s question as clearly as possible, they admitted that the words that we have in our language really are not able to convey a great deal of detail or descriptions about the fourth density. That would make sense as the fourth density is beyond the veil of forgetting for one thing, and in the fourth density we will see and experience much which we have never seen or done before. It will very likely be more than our minds can begin to comprehend, or our words describe, on this side of the veil. However, Ra said that they could offer us some approximations of positive statements regarding the nature of the fourth density.

They began by giving us an idea of what fourth density is not. We will not be using words unless we want to. That suggests to me that telepathy will be our primary means of communication, and I would guess that we will be telepathically transmitting entire concepts rather than just words. Ra suggested that our bodies will be much different in the fourth density, and I would imagine that they will be more light- and life-filled. And what an inspiring thought that there will be no disharmony of any kind in the fourth density.

Ra continued by saying that we will be aware of the thoughts and vibrations of those around us. This would seem to suggest that we will be able to communicate our very being to others just by being who we are without having to try to communicate at all. Having just made the harvest by being of service to others, it is not surprising that Ra said that we will be aware of the sorrows of third density, and we will very likely wish to offer ourselves in service to others in whatever manner we can. They also said that the learning that we will undertake in the fourth density will include seeking the wisdom or light of the fifth density. Lastly, Ra suggested that we will all be able to express distinct differences between each other but that these differences would be “automatically harmonized by group consensus”. And, of course, we will all be operating within a social memory complex which will be comprised of dearly beloved brothers and sisters that we now know from heart to heart and from soul to soul. This sounds like something akin to heaven, and I would imagine that when we get there we will have the distinct feeling that all the effort we put forth while on Earth to make this graduation was definitely worth it as Players on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life.

Today I took time throughout the day to read more of The Secret of Light by Walter Russell and make notes of any questions I had about how to interpret his very many layered descriptions about his philosophy of light and how it works in the infinite creation. Aaron Maret, the facilitator of the Asheville group that is hosting the study of The Secret of Life, said that he would be glad to offer my questions to the study group and relay their answers to me.

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

All That Is Needed Is Given

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

Passionately does this instrument pray at this time to be of service to others. For all who would wish to be of service, we would recommend that passion be turned into surety; that hope be filled with faith.

For whence indeed cometh help? Is it not written in the Psalter that help cometh from the Lord who made heaven and earth? Cannot this great principle of creation, which created all that there is, create those channels of help which are needed at the time that they are needed and not before?

You who have walked the pilgrim’s path have surely noted that all that is needed is given in its time and all that is not given is that which is not needed for the learning and flowering of that individual soul.

Rest back into the strength and the passion that created all and trust yourselves, you who seek to serve, as adequate channels needing only to be open when help is requested. So you shall serve and infinity flow through you. Worry not that your supply may fail.

We leave you in peace, love and trust, 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.


I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on what lies ahead, death:

What Lies Ahead


30.4 Questioner: Is there any loss to the mind or spirit after this transition which we call death or any impairment of either because of the loss of this chemical body that we now have?

Ra: I am Ra. In your terms, there is a great loss of mind complex due to the fact that much of the activity of a mental nature of which you are aware during the experience of this space/time continuum is as much of a surface illusion as is the chemical body complex.

In other terms, nothing whatever of importance is lost; the character or, shall we say, pure distillation of emotions and biases, or distortions and wisdoms, if you will, becoming obvious for the first time, shall we say; these pure emotions and wisdoms and bias-distortions being, for the most part, either ignored or underestimated during physical life experience.

In terms of the spiritual, this channel is then much opened due to the lack of necessity for the forgetting characteristic of third density.

When we leave our bodies at the time of what we call death it is only our bodies that die. They have served us well in our incarnation and have given us the means to travel about within the third-density illusion and interact with the people and the places that have held the greatest meaning in our lives. All of our pre-incarnative lessons have had a chance to be manifested as many times as necessary in order for us to grow in the spiritual sense and to open our hearts in unconditional love, to make The Choice of service to others, and to graduate into the fourth density of love and understanding.

In the quote above Don asked Ra if there was any loss to our minds or spirits when our chemical bodies die. Ra said that so much of what we focus on in our life patterns is illusory in nature and is of no real consequence within our total beingness, and that illusory information comprises the majority of what we lose as we leave our bodies. Until we become conscious spiritual seekers of truth our mental efforts of participating within the mundane world don’t bear much spiritual fruit.

The same could be said of our physical bodies as Ra mentioned that they are just as much of an illusion as is our mental activity before we awaken to the purpose of our lives.  Before we become conscious of the evolutionary process we are likely to identify with our physical bodies to the point that we may believe that we are our bodies, and this type of illusory perception is also lost at the time of the death of the body.

Ra said that those qualities of true importance that signify our purpose for incarnating into a physical body become more obvious to us when our bodies die. After the transition into the inner planes of Earth we have a chance to look back at what Ra called our “pure distillation of emotions and biases, or distortions and wisdoms” which we were able to achieve in our Earthly lives. These are the true fruit of all the experiences that we participated in with our families, friends, and all others whether for good or for ill. As we eventually go through the healing and review of our incarnations with our guides we will get a chance to see how well we were able to learn and love as we had hoped to do.

Ra went on to say that our spiritual complex, which is the least distorted of our mind/body/spirit complex to begin with, is much opened after our transition into larger life, as Carla liked to call it. Our lives are much larger after we drop our bodies and move into the metaphysical realms because we are no longer within the veil of forgetting that is a fundamental part of the third density. We no longer see ourselves as separate from everyone else. It is easy then to see love in every moment and in every person, including ourselves. We see the purpose for our previous life and the areas of learning that we need to pursue more diligently in upcoming incarnations. We see that everything that happened was for a good reason, that there are no mistakes, and that all is well. Don and Ra went into a good deal more detail about the healing and review of the incarnation with Don’s next question:

71.6 Questioner: As an entity goes through the death process in third density and finds itself in time/space, it finds itself in a different set of circumstances. Would you please describe the properties or circumstances of time/space and then the process of healing of incarnative experiences that some entities encounter?

Ra: I am Ra. Although this query is difficult to answer adequately due to the limitations of your space/time sound vibration complexes, we shall respond to the best of our ability.

The hallmark of time/space is the inequity between time and space. In your space/time the spatial orientation of material causes a tangible framework for illusion. In time/space the inequity is upon the shoulders of that property known to you as time. This property renders entities and experiences intangible in a relative sense. In your framework each particle, or core vibration, moves at a velocity which approaches what you call the speed of light from the direction of supraluminal velocities.

Thus the time/space, or metaphysical, experience is that which is very finely tuned and, although an analog of space/time, lacking in its tangible characteristics. In these metaphysical planes there is a great deal of what you call time which is used to review and re-review the biases and learn/teachings of a prior, as you would call it, space/time incarnation.

The extreme fluidity of these regions makes it possible for much to be penetrated which must needs be absorbed before the process of healing of an entity may be accomplished. Each entity is located in a somewhat immobile state, much as you are located in space/time in a somewhat immobile state in time. In this immobile space the entity has been placed by the form-maker and Higher Self so that it may be in the proper configuration for learn/teaching that which it has received in the space/time incarnation.

Depending upon this time/space locus there will be certain helpers which assist in this healing process. The process involves seeing in full the experience, seeing it against the backdrop of the mind/body/spirit complex total experience, forgiving the self for all missteps as regards the missed guideposts during the incarnation and, finally, the careful assessment of the next necessities for learning. 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.

As the entity which has completed its incarnation leaves its third-density body it moves into the form-maker or indigo-ray body until ethereahas been penetrated and understanding has been gained by the mind/body/spirit totality”as was mentioned in Chapter Six. There is a variety of names for the location in which the healing and review of the incarnation takes place: time/space, the metaphysical realms, the inner planes, and the heaven worlds. All refer to the same place. In their answer to Don’s question Ra uses the term time/space.

Ra said that the time/space environment was helpful for the review and healing process of the incarnation because of its fluidity and intangible nature. Whereas our space/time, or material world of the incarnation, is far more solid or tangible and offers us an environment in which we can move about in a sequential way with experiences that have a past, a present, and a future. This allows us to process these experiences and attempt to learn our pre-incarnative lessons in a more practical way.

However, the supraluminal experiences that we have in time/space, during the review of our incarnations, is more fluid and we have more “time which is used to review and re-review the biases and learn/teachings of a prior, as you would call it, space/time incarnation.” Our form maker bodies and Higher Self place us in this location because before we can heal any harm or injuries of our previous incarnation, we need to be able to review and re-review the overall nature of our incarnations and the various lessons that we attempted during our lives. In this way we will discover any areas of our experience that need healing.

Then Ra mentioned that during the healing process we have “certain helpers”, primarily our Higher Self, that help us to see our life experience as a whole. The Higher Self also aids us in seeing our just completed incarnation in relation to all previous incarnations within the third density to get a feel for the overall pattern of lessons that we have attempted. When we gain a clear understanding of what we had planned to do in our recent life, then we have the opportunity to forgive ourselves for whatever “guideposts or clues along the way that we might have missed. Then, with this overall picture of all of our lives in mind, plans can be made for our next incarnation to take up where our just completed incarnation has left off. If we have become conscious of the process of our evolution in mind, body, and spirit during our previous incarnation, then we can also take part in the planning of our next incarnation rather than having it done for us by our Higher Self. This is kind of like becoming Players on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life on the inner planes.

And since this is the time of harvest it is also possible that we could walk into the light and have our violet-ray energy center evaluated as to whether we are able to be graduated into the fourth density of love and understanding as Ra mentioned in 48.7:

Upon the bodily complex death, as you call this transition, the entity will immediately, upon realization of its state, return to the indigo form-maker body and rest therein until the proper future placement is made.

Here we have the anomaly of harvest. In harvest the entity will then transfer its indigo body into violet-ray manifestation as seen in true-color yellow. This is for the purpose of gauging the harvestability of the entity. After this anomalous activity has been carefully completed, the entity will move into indigo body again and be placed in the correct true-color locus in space/time and time/space at which time the healings and learn/teachings necessary shall be completed and further incarnation needs determined.

We will go into this process in more detail tomorrow in the section on the harvest.

This afternoon we are having another public channeling meditation, so I am getting the house ready for that this morning and will post this journal entry early as well.

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

March 11

Calming The Storms Of Change

I am the spirit of the living Jesus, incorporate in the mystery of love and the principle of the consciousness of love. I greet you in the essence of divine love.

It is not known how many shall be blown by the winds of change this day. What is well known to those who seek the spirit of truth and love is that the winds of change are favorable, however stiff the gale may seem to be.

For those who have the consciousness of love and the deep inner knowledge of peace, those storms of the life experience are calmed without great conscious effort by the remembrance of that inner peace and the turning to faith in the ultimate harmony and propriety of the Creator’s plan.

Yes, each of you has an agenda. That agenda may be stable for a large portion of your life experience. Or you and the Creator together may have molded a life experience of much service and also much change. Let there be in your mind less and less difference between the status quo and that which is untried and perhaps seen to be lesser, for the soul which flows with the changes of circumstance, discovering in each circumstance the peace and love therein, is free in the service of the Father through the grace of Jesus Christ.

May you be filled with peace, both now and evermore. 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.
