I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from February 13, 1994:

The question this afternoon is from N and it is, “How would Q’uo go about designing a healing strategy that would encompass all of the needs of third-density entities if Q’uo were itself a third-density entity, here with that purpose in mind?”

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the infinite One. We are most pleased and privileged to be called to your circle for this working, and would thank each who has come to this opportunity for the sharing of thoughts.

Your query addresses the concept of healing in a provocative way in that the question asks what we, that is, we of another density, would do within your third density in order to best maximize universal healing. It is one thing to be where we are, looking upon the Earth scene and philosophizing concerning the prospects of improving that world scene according to our views. It is quite another to be within that third density which you now enjoy, for not we, with our experience, but you, with your limitations and challenges, are the ones called to service at this particular juncture.

Were we you, we also would be equally limited. Let us rephrase and say that were each of you to be able to have access to that portion of your totality of self which vibrates within our range of vibrations in our density you, then, would find yourself completely unable to take those understandings and attempt to affix them into the net of third-density illusion reality. Perhaps the best way to say that is there is always the 20/20 vision of hindsight, yet it is to those who have no hindsight but only the situation as it appears who act. It is you who are called to act and to serve, you with all of your self-perceived limitations.

The Creator encapsulates Itself within each, so the true self that you are is in one sense beyond any limitation, beyond any distortion, beyond any impurity. Within each of you does lie truth, does lie healing, does lie grace, beauty, and justice. And we would have to say that were we one of you or many of you, we would, as do you, feel profoundly confused by the illusion of third density. You have no easy task, you who seek to serve. So, one response to your query is that your fine, hard-earned understanding does not translate into a master plan for third-density healing. Only those who are within third density have the right to attempt to create such conditions as universal healing.

We see the concept of healing or health having to do fundamentally with not the physical vehicle nor simply with the mind or mental vehicle but, rather, we see healing as that which creates a broader or deeper faith, for what is health but the just proportion or balance of energies within the individual self. Health is not simply a matter of sickness and curing sickness. Health has to do with the balance of energies within the self so that the self is tuned, shall we say, as much as can be achieved by the seeker to a continuing awareness of the self as a child of the infinite Creator. Healing begins with the realization that love and loving constitute wellness.

More than any one method of medical treatment the philosophical, metaphysical or religious paths of service offer a way to teach those who wish to learn how to call inwardly and move toward that inner room wherein the heart of silence speaks its blessed and hallowed chant: love praising love, love thanking love, love having any emotion whatever to love. The soul which seeks persistently this inner sanctuary, the mercy seat of the heart, is as the one who chooses to go into the grand hall and to set the table for a sumptuous banquet. To the human eye the banquet hall may not exist. To the heart within, beating in faith, the hall shall fill to overflowing and the feast shall take place.

The over-arching energy which heals is accessed through faith. Then what each seeker does with that open channel of love and faith is very much dependent upon that seeker’s particular journey. Many are the ways to teach faith. Each who is a parent teaches, by the way it deals with its children, the ways of faith and blessed indeed is that child whose parents have retained a strong sense of the importance of living faithfully. Blessed indeed is that child who learns not only to value knowledge, wisdom, and power but also to value the ways of faith and the ways of service.

The question for this session was from N who asked: “How would Q’uo go about designing a healing strategy that would encompass all of the needs of third-density entities if Q’uo were itself a third-density entity, here with that purpose in mind?” Q’uo responded by saying that they would be equally limited and have the same problems that any third-density entity would have in being able to deal with their self-perceived limitations [that are presented by the veil of forgetting.] They went on to say that our true self has the Creator within us so that we are full of grace, beauty, and healing, and if they were in our position they would also be confused by the illusion of third density and any attempt to create universal healing. Q’uo continued by saying that health was not just concerned with sickness and disease but was the realization that one is a child of the Creator, and that true health was concerned with love and loving others. They said that the philosophical or metaphysical paths offered the means whereby one learns how to call inwardly to where the heart speaks of love praising love, love thanking love, love having any emotion whatever to love. They said that primary energy of healing is achieved by living a life in faith and love that is unique to each seeker. On May 8, 1993, Q’uo spoke of the value of faith in the healing process:

The healing session done from the standpoint of one who accepts and allows the free flow of healing energy, and which trusts and has faith in the intelligence of this energy is effective to perhaps a deeper degree than the session done from the standpoint of keen awareness. However, the keenness is especially useful in preparation for a healing session to bring the nerve within to a fine tuning so that the healer is fully awake and aware within the self. Then in the actual session this keenness rests ever so lightly on the unified ocean of serene calm in which metaphysical healing takes place. So, each attitude is effective, one more so before the session when preparations are made within the self, the other for use within the session when the energies of faith are most appropriate.

Those within your churches who preach according to some religious system have a great opportunity to teach in healing ways. Indeed, when one discovers any path of service one may see that this too is a way to bear witness to the forces and energies of wellness or healing. Let us gaze at the simple concept of wellness or health here, for it is our perception that the third density is not intended to be universally healed. The perceived imperfections of the illusion are innumerable, and it is a virtue of third density illusion that it continues rough, unfinished, and unhealed. These are the conditions which promote rapidity of learning. The real health of the soul is not risked by the third-density conditions, whatever they be. It is necessary and desirable, in terms of the opportunity to grow and to go forward upon the journey of seeking, that the physical conditions, mental conditions, and emotional conditions experienced be perceived as broken.

This is a difficult concept to grasp. Why would the Creator allow, much less determine, that suffering on a continual basis be part of the excellent and beautiful plan for spiritual seeking? This does not have an obvious answer, yet we feel it is true. The virtues of your environment contain none greater than that virtue of predictable imperfection and limitation. What the Creator has in mind, we feel, is not an increase in health of the body or of the mind or of the emotion but rather a continuing possibility for improvement in the balancing and aligning of mind, body, emotions, and spirit.

Health, then, can be seen to be within third density that state in which the entity—and each is unique—has achieved a stable balance within the self so that each energy has space for clarity and focus, much as you would see a color become more pure so one could envision the energies of the entity becoming more true, more just in balance and proportion, one to the other. This point of balance is unique for each unique entity.

Were we to attempt to teach perfection, that concept might, in one powerful moment, dismiss all illusion. However, we cannot move into your perceived reality and hook perfection out of the sea of confusion like a fish, nor would we be doing the Creator’s work to attempt to lift any body into perfection. We count ourselves most blessed if we are simply able to suggest to even one entity that a stubborn focus upon infinite perfection will take the energies as they are and will, through time, produce for that entity such visions and clues concerning balance as are necessary for that individual’s progress.

How does this relate to a concerted attempt to put into manifestation the ideal healing environment? This question is a large one. We would suggest that there is no higher standard than that which is implicit in this question. It is to—we correct this instrument—it is a call to a great adventure to seek with great energy to materialize such an environment. This environment shall be visualized more and more frequently as your time moves forward for many entities now have become aware, both of the many, many ways of affecting cures and healing and also of the supreme place that faith has within an entity’s individual health. These two concepts are ones we would suggest for contemplation.

Now Q’uo said that in the third density it is not necessary that all imperfections of the body, mind, or emotions be healed because the unhealed imperfections are a means of learning and do not cause any problems for the soul. Then Q’uo said that the Creator feels that this is a helpful way for the soul to continue in the balancing of the mind, the body, the emotions, and the spirit so that a stable balance may be achieved which is unique for each soul. Q’uo went on to say that they cannot teach perfection, but they can suggest that each soul aim for perfection in the balance of the mind, body, and spirit as this process would produce clues and visions that create the balance that is necessary for the individual’s progress. Q’uo completed their answer by saying that it is important in constructing the healing environment to aid the seeker in ways of affecting cures and healing and also the great value that faith has in achieving the seeker’s health. On May 28, 2006, Q’uo revealed how the healing environment may be created:

Let us be clear in stating that there is no push or pull to Reiki energy. It is not something that is given. It is, rather, an environment that is created. For the time that the Reiki work is being done, the patient lies in an increasingly Edenic environment. The distortions that create illness are suspended. The crystalline nature of the energy pouring through creates an alternative environment, and if the person chooses to accept the new environment, healing may occur. If the person chooses not to accept the healing environment, then it is as if it never occurred. No harm has been done, but also no healing will have occurred.

It is not at all necessary for an entity who is being healed to believe that anything is occurring. However, it is necessary for the entity to accept the new configuration of energy. Some entities are completely able to do this without believing at all in the entire exercise. They are able to say, “Given that such a thing occurred, then I accept the healing.” It is not belief that is necessary, but the willingness to accept a new environment that is required.

We would wish to allow this response to be received by the one known as N before responding further, if that is acceptable to those within this circle. We pause for communication.

Jim: That’s fine with us, Q’uo. Thank you.

Q’uo: Very well, my brother. Then we would ask if there is a query upon the material given or another line of questioning at this time.

Jim: I have no other questions myself, Q’uo. I appreciate what you’ve said.

We are those of Q’uo and we thank you, my brother. We are not quite ready to leave this delightful gathering and would speak a bit further but did not wish to move forward in that which we specifically gave in answer to the opening question.

We would speak to this entity’s question, for we are aware, of course, when a channel such as this one questions whether it is still being of service. We encourage each to ask questions such as this. It is not wise to be smug or to feel that one has gotten the final answer. It is quite healthy, shall we say, for this question to come up when the world does not beat a path to your door, when meetings are small, when, as we see in this instrument’s thinking, that physical parameters are unmet, such as money for the publications, it is perfectly logical to question one’s path of service.

We then must say where is the heart of service, for you? Where is love, for you? Where are your gifts? Which gifts do you wish to use? When seeking answers to questions concerning service we encourage the exploration of one’s own gifts for each entity moves into the third-density illusion with all of its woes and wonders with a certain package of gifts, a certain combination of virtues and darker virtues, which you call vices, and out of this broken and seeking existence blooms forth all of the beauty and generous harmony of that same entity’s blossom of selfhood.

So we ask the instrument to take the time in the following days to contemplate its gifts and to seek an inner feeling of certitude concerning the service which is desired to be given so that the service may once again be made calm and unruffled by self-doubts. Always, it is not the outer appearance which determines the success of employing one’s gifts but, rather, one must simply move as one feels to move, always being aware that the service is service to love, in love, for love, by means of love alone.

We would encourage each to lift the heart, lift the mind, lift the viewpoint, just as the sun seems to lift the flower bud, lift the grasses and the leaf. Attempt to give yourselves the freedom within to turn to…

[Side one of tape ends.]

…towards the light, as that light is most deeply and purely perceived.

To sharpen these perceptions, again we say, spend time contemplating. Certainly it is good to have the meetings together, for those who seek together band together in a way which improves the hearing, shall we say, of all involved and creates a much improved atmosphere for seeking, but more than this, spend the time alone seeking, whether in prayer, meditation or in the joy, the laughter and the fellowship. Spend time praising and rejoicing. Why rejoice? Why give thanks and praise? Because the greatest energy of all is always the same: love is always the over-mastering power and Creator. No matter what the experience, praise, joy, and thanks are appropriate. When one can, even for a moment, see and feel the truth of the turning to love above all things, then shall healing truly multiply.

Carla had a question about whether she was still being of service as the channeling sessions were small, and there were concerns about having enough money to publish publications. Q’uo began by asking Carla what the heart of her service was, and what were her gifts because everyone in the third density incarnates with various gifts of a light and even a dark nature because it was from such a situation that the harmony and beauty of the life would bloom forth. So Q’uo suggested that Carla contemplate her gifts so that she could see how she could offer them in the confidence that she was offering love at all times as her service to love. Then Q’uo recommended that her heart, mind, and viewpoint be lifted up in freedom towards the light as purely and deeply as it could be perceived.  Q’uo completed their thoughts by saying that Carla should continue to hold meetings and share seeking with others as each could aid the other, but she should also spend time in solitude in meditation, or praying, and in praising and rejoicing as this was the most powerful way of turning to the Love of the Creator so that healing could truly multiply. On April 26, 1992, Q’uo spoke of how gifts of service can be manifested:

We may, however, remind each to think in memory of all the unexpected gifts of service which have moved into manifestation in each of your lives: the bread returning upon the waters again and again tenfold, a hundredfold, until you cannot count all the blessings which come into the life. The energy for these blessings is begun in the self’s desire to give of the self. As it gives, it creates an energy which is forever spherical, and returns and returns and lifts one higher and higher each time it returns. The way of service is a way of spiritual evolution. To figure out how to be unselfish in an illusion—and a deep illusion, for it is ours also—where service to others is the most efficient of service to the self if one desires to evolve spiritually, is somewhat marvelous, is it not?

May this bread returning upon the waters be a sign to you. When you see the manifestation of love given to you, hear that consolation, hear those energies being registered in the heart of the Creator Self, for all is one and as you serve one, those tender and merciful feelings, those gentle hands and soft, kind words, those strong supportive silences move out through whatever bafflement may seem to stop the service into the memory of your entire planetary sphere and become a part of that which is positive about your planet. No good intention, no desire to help is ever lost. Do not let the illusion’s disconsolate, apparent nature cause you or any to stumble upon the path of service to others. But let it redouble your desire as you know that all your love has flown to the heart of the Creator Self of this planet and is immediately a portion of the light of the world.

We would at this time leave this instrument and this group, apologizing for the lack of satisfactory answers. However, we are dealing, when we deal with healing modalities, in an area in which, through this instrument at this time, the information we may share is, and will continue to be, of a nature more abstract than practical. However, we would not wish to employ this instrument differently. And there you are—a situation.

As we close, we would say to the one known as N, that portion of us which is Latwii greets and blesses the one known as N and thanks the one known as N for enjoying our jokes.

We would leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai. Adonai. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I changed out the sheets and pillow cases as I do at the end of each month. Then I put them in the wash with some other clothes. When they came out of the wash, I ironed the pillow cases and flat sheet. Then Anna and I synchronized our computers to listen to Carla channel Ra in Session #36 while we read the words she was channeling. The basic information concerned the relationship between the mind/body/spirit complex, the Higher Self, and the mind/body/spirit complex totality, and we had a good deal of discussion about these relationships. When our session was complete, I went upstairs and gave Benny some catlax in her food as she is doing well taking her two medications for heart failure and elevated kidney values, but I have recently requested medication for her constipation as well.

This afternoon I ran a couple of errands with my first stop being at Feeder’s Supply where I bought some kitty litter and picked up some more petunias at Paul’s Fruit Market to put in another area of the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden that deer seem to have eaten. Then I bought some food for myself. My next stop was at Walgreen’s where I bought some Tylenol and some Pepsi Zero. Then I got another load of garden soil from the driveway side of the pet garden and put it in some more of the ceramic tile tubes that I have made a pyramid out of next to the Secret Garden in the back yard.

I am thinking of you today, Chloe, on the second anniversary of your passing into larger life as one of the sweetest kitty cats I have ever known and loved.

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

June 30

The Natural Darkness Of Flesh

I am the voice of Christ’s consciousness of Love to the world and I greet you in the Love of Jesus the Christ.

This instrument has long pondered why there is discomfort to the instrument when the instrument begins to tune itself and prepare for contact with the spirit of the living God. Know ye that you are both light and darkness. As it has been written, the light came into the world, but the darkness knew it not.

One who seeks the living Spirit that speaks to the world today seeks the light which the world recognizes not, nor does the body in the natural darkness of flesh.

Thusly, when the mind and spirit are entrained to a higher and more compassionate tuning, there is created within the being a unity in which one part does not recognize the other. The light does not recognize the darkness, nor the darkness, the light.

Know that you are both and that your choice is always the darkness of a world which has not thought of Christ or the Light which is the powerful and renewing thought of Christ in the world.

We leave you in peace, both now and through eternity. 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 Q’uo quote comes from February 6, 1994:

The question this afternoon is from N and it’s concerning healing disease. The basic statement is that it appears that illness or disease, not chosen pre-incarnationally, are the last resources of evolution for the processing of catalyst during incarnation. This basic imbalance is addressed by the healing modalities in one or both of two ways that depend on the degree of Christ awareness possessed by the one to be healed.

Then N lists two different possibilities: the one to be healed may be aware that the illusion has presented the disease as a means of showing a deeper imbalance that can be healed, with the one to be healed working on him or herself and receiving assistance from a healer. The basic change would take place mentally with the realignment of beliefs.

There is also another chance for healing by a person that is not aware of the relationship of disease to the spiritual journey and in this case the one to be healed would go to an allopathic healer and surgery or medication or some sort of an allopathic treatment would be given, and it would seem that this removes from the one to be healed the chance to grow, the opportunity being removed by the allopathic treatment.

The first question, of four that will address this area, is, “How does the learning occur, the unbalance addressed and the catalyst processed in the unaware person?”

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. It is a privilege and a pleasure to commune with this group. We thank each for calling us to your presence to share our thoughts with you on healing. Please be aware at all times that we give not dogma nor doctrine but rather opinion and thoughts to consider. Those which help any, each is free to choose. Any thoughts or concepts in which the receiver is not interested may quickly be placed aside, for each shall recognize his own personal truth. Therefore, we leave these opinions to your discretionary use.

In addressing the stated question, we find we would make introductory remarks. This step is taken because there are assumptions within the introductory paragraphs which we find to be other than our own understanding. Consequently, we will back up, as it were, from the stated inquiry and later ask that that query be read again, if this is satisfactory to this circle.

Jim: Yes, that’s fine.

We are those of Q’uo. Very well, then.

It is a distinct privilege to be able to view the light of your sun using this instrument’s eyes which, needless to report, perceive much differently that other physical vehicles belonging to other densities. In such a beautiful, glowing creation it is difficult from a long distance to realize how much of the total of an incarnational experience is involved with issues of healing. Indeed, healing is a much-misunderstood concept, for healing and cures are not the same. Furthermore, the term of healer suggests a definition which is incorrect. That is, the healer does not do anything. The healer does not heal. The healer presents to the one requesting healing an opportunity.

In healing which has been termed psychic healing or absent healing or many other noninvasive healing procedures, the opportunity which is tendered to an entity is created from the crystallization of the healer’s personality, shall we say, so that the healer becomes the equivalent of the healing chamber within the Great Pyramid. When surgery or chemicals are used by a healer this represents a physically objective means, visible to the eye, touchable by the hand, of offering the self-same healing opportunity. In every case the actual healing is a process which involves the unmanifested self.

Therefore, to the healer, we would always suggest the surrendering of that personal agenda which is natural for any healer upon viewing an illness or the physical evidence of an illness. It is so easy to feel that one shall do this and that and it shall operate in a healing modality. Actually, it is well to remain humble as a healer for the healer works upon its own self and in no case does the healer heal.

The strong and invasive avenues of affecting bodily health do in most cases affect the physical vehicle of the patient in the way expected by the healer. However, these are means of curing or masking the symptoms of ill health. They work to make a body function differently and, hopefully, more normally. In no case can a curing by invasive means function as a healing of the imbalance which the ill health is addressing. It is well to make a careful distinction, therefore, between the objectively provable change in health between before a pill was taken or an operative procedure applied and afterwards. This remains in the precinct of curing a physical condition.

Thusly, at all times, the one who wishes healing makes good use of the service rendered by a physician or healer but remains completely responsible for its own processes of healing. To the healer, therefore, all patients are the same. The processes of actual healing are in each case the same. This is hard to see for healing modalities range from the work done in thought by spiritual practitioners to the most obviously invasive and life changing healing modalities of your allopathic practitioners. Yet, in all cases, the healer offers an opportunity and in all cases the healing is the choice and the business of the patient.

It may indeed aid in the attitude of healers who find themselves frustrated by seemingly uncooperative patients to realize that the patient’s seemingly nonsensical complaints do make more sense when the struggle of the entity to heal itself, which is going on beneath the threshold of the conscious mind, is actually taking place. There are often strong unconscious motivations which drive a patient to alter and often worsen the medical picture. This is not the healer’s concern and the failure to groom the patient so that it does all that it should is often not a battle the true healer wishes to win. When given the choice between a cure and a healing, which would each choose as patient? Which would each choose as a healer serving the infinite One? To whom, or to what agency lies the responsibility for asking these questions?

Before beginning an answer to the first question Q’uo gave some introductory information regarding healing as to its more correct nature and process. Q’uo said that the basic concept of healing is that the healer does not heal but through work upon itself becomes crystallized so that the energies of the healer function as the healing chamber of the Great Pyramid at Giza in the interruption of the red/violet protective shell of the one to be healed in order that the unmanifested self [or the higher self] of the one to be healed may heal itself. Q’uo said that even in allopathically-oriented healing it is the unmanifested self that heals the self. Q’uo went on to say that there are times when the one to be healed has struggles within itself that are below the level of the conscious mind that result in the worsening of the medical condition, so it is not any healer’s responsibility to force the patient to do all it is supposed to do to achieve a healing as the result may be more a cure of the symptoms rather than a true healing achieved by the unmanifested self. In 73.19, Ra gave one possible reason that the unmanifested self may not accept the healing:

We might note further that when the one wishing to be healed, though sincere, remains unhealed, as you call this distortion, you may consider pre-incarnative choices and your more helpful aid to such an entity may be the suggestion that it meditate upon the affirmative uses of whatever limitations it might experience. We would also note that in these cases the indigo-ray workings are often of aid. [Indigo-ray work increases the feeling of self worth.]

We would at this time request the first query.

Jim: The first query concerns, “How does the learning occur, and how are the unbalances addressed and catalyst processed in the unaware person?” It seems that you’ve spoken to this topic which means that we could ask the second question about, “Does the healer who’s aware of the spiritual aspects of healing incur any karmic debts? Does the healer who is not aware of the spiritual aspects incur any karmic debts by helping with the healing process?”

We are those of Q’uo. There is no karma involved in the work of healing, per se, for the healer works upon itself, attempting so to balance and empower its personality, if you will, in such a stable and open condition that the opportunity can be offered to the patient for healing. The concern of the physician, then, is with its own spiritual situation. We refer not to the mood of the day or to surface frequencies concerning subjectively perceived spiritual states. One may be, as this instrument would say, in the desert, where the spiritual topography is alien and mystifying or it may be in the most exalted of subjectively perceived spiritual states. To the healer which is mature and therefore efficacious, this will make no difference for the healer who is mature has become aware that the Creator is always present, that the power of the unnamable mystery is always infinite and that this power exists in every location, at every time and under any and all conditions. In other words, the healer learns to tap into that which lies beneath the experiences of the desert or the oasis. That deep level is as a sea which once tapped into offers the absolute inner subjective surety that faith is real and hope exists to save. The healer, in other words, turns from all appearances within itself before it turns away from the appearances presented in the patient.

Karma is a phrase which is overused by those meaning various things by it to the point that we feel it may be helpful to state our grasp of this concept. We see karma as a kind of spiritual momentum, where unbalanced acts concerning another, and unforgiven by the self and perhaps by the other as well, remain in motion in an entity’s incarnational experience. Energies which have not been balanced on the level karma was incurred, or above that level, are carried over into another incarnational experience. This, then, provides for distortion of that experience in such a way as to provide for the entity the opportunity to balance this energy, to stop the momentum of this imbalance. The…

[A loud crash of something toppling over is heard.]


Carla: OK. OK. A little bit of retuning here.


(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo, and am with this instrument again. We actually did not leave this instrument, however, the instrument’s ears seemed to be much disturbed by the noises of your feline playmates. Therefore, we are glad to make a fresh start, as it were.

We were saying that perhaps it can be seen, then, that there is no karma between healer and healed. The actual predictable difficulty or incorrectness of perception for healers is that it is easy to forget that the healer is actually working upon the self. Then the healer takes responsibility where there was none.

Now, in the matter of curing, the healer applies the skill, whether it be with the surgeon’s scalpel or with the specialist’s detailed knowledge and pharmacopoeia. To cure conditions the healer which chooses also to cure has the responsibility to apply this curing as sensitively and well as possible. There still, however, is no karma between the healer and the one who is cured, for the healer has but altered some personal circumstances of the entity needing healing. Another opportunity will replace the opportunity for healing which seemed to be taken away when the condition of the patient was cured.

Thusly, the healer simply needs to do that curing work it chooses to do in a spirit of joy. Joy that there is some way to reduce suffering. Joy in being of service, but not joy at changing a patient’s experience for the patient itself will change its experience in response to its own inner agenda. It is well for the healer which is an allopathic practitioner, then, to speak to this when the healer finds it helpful, that is, stating that these are ways in which the condition presented can be controlled or altered to some extent but that the true work of healing will come from the patient as it deals with its new circumstances.

The second question was: “Does the healer who’s aware of the spiritual aspects of healing incur any karmic debts? Does the healer who is not aware of the spiritual aspects incur any karmic debts by helping with the healing process?” Q’uo began by saying that there was no karma involved in the healing process, and the healer is aware of the presence of the Creator in all times and places could be accessed by having faith that this energy may be tapped into to heal. Then Q’uo said that karma was a situation in which there was a lack of forgiveness for the self or another person which would carry over into another incarnation unless forgiveness could be achieved, so that there was no relationship of karma between the healer and the one to be healed. Q’uo completed their reply by saying that: “The healer simply needs to do that curing work it chooses to do in a spirit of joy. Joy that there is some way to reduce suffering. Joy in being of service, but not joy at changing a patient’s experience for the patient itself will change its experience in response to its own inner agenda.” On September 7, 2019, Q’uo described the relationship between the healer and the one to be healed:

The process of which you speak, that is, the distortions from the one to be healed moving to you, is a process which is made possible by your identification with the one to be healed in a manner in which you, in effect, become that entity for the time duration of the healing process. This is a means by which the higher self, shall we say, of the one to be healed finds a means by which the one to be healed is able to make the choice of accepting the healing process, and thereby blending its own beingness with your own, so that during the healing process you are as one with the one to be healed.

This is a feature, or function, of the process in order that these energies may be transmuted and transferred from the one to be healed through you to the infinity of the universe about you, thereby to be seen or witnessed as becoming a part of the greater reality of the beingness of the One Infinite Creator. This is much likened to the garden being fertilized, shall we say, so that those energies which were not salubrious for growth within the one to be healed may become available for energizing in a positive fashion by some other portion of the One Creator at what you would call a later time.

Is there another query?

Jim: I believe you’ve just spoken to whether or not the healer abridges the free will of the patient, so I guess we can move to the last one and that is, “If the person seeking healing dies are these imbalances that it dies of worked on in the astral plane or is another incarnation necessary or how effective can the person do healing after the incarnation is over?”

We are Q’uo. There is healing which takes place outside of the environment of the physical incarnation, however, that healing is on a level of metaphysical wholeness and does not address physical, mental, or emotional conditions as experienced while the entity was alive. Between incarnations, within the form-maker body, the spirit or soul will undergo much healing, not of the—we correct this instrument—not of this condition or that condition, rather inter-incarnational healings address the process within which the entity, shall we say, looks through the book of self, missing no pages, and then reintegrates the substantial significant self in a way which more accurately and lovingly places the various distortions and patterns within the unique entity, gradually preparing that entity for its next incarnation. It is within physical incarnation, not outside of it, that questions raised or imbalances, shall we say, within a previous incarnation are taken up again.

The work of inter-incarnational healing, that is, the healings between incarnations, is, indeed, most necessary and does constitute a vast array of healing modalities. However, these do not shine through to those within incarnational experience unless the entities deliberately pursue the creation within incarnation of a, shall we say, window whereby the entity within incarnation can climb, shall we say, into a special place which has access to the higher self, as the form-maker body does between incarnations. This can be done in some cases by what this instrument calls regressive hypnosis.

The last question was: “If the person seeking healing dies are these imbalances that it dies of worked on in the astral plane; or is another incarnation necessary; or how effective can the person achieve healing after the incarnation is over?” Q’uo said that the healing that occurs after the incarnation is over is not of a physical, mental, or emotional nature but concerns the degree to which the pre-incarnative lessons were learned and which ones were not learned as the incarnation is reviewed, with assistance of the form-maker body, in preparation for the next incarnation. Q’uo completed their reply by saying that occasionally this type of healing can be accomplished within the incarnation where regressive hypnosis is used to contact the higher self to gain this type of information. In 70.17, Ra speaks about the healing and review of the incarnation:

After the death of the physical complex in yellow-ray activation, the mind/body/spirit complex moves to a far different portion of time/space in which the indigo body will allow much healing and review to take place before any movement is made towards another incarnative experience.

Q’uo: My brother, is this the last query?

Jim: I believe that was it, Q’uo. We appreciate your responses and I’m sure N does as well. Thank you very much.

Q’uo: Thank you for your thanks. Is there a query which any would make which has come as a result of that which we have offered at this time of working?

Jim: Not from me, Q’uo. Thank you very much, once again.

We are Q’uo, and thank each for the kind words. We would speak finally requesting the continuation of queries concerning this area. We realize the difficulties involved in asking questions from a distance and because of this instrument’s thoughts shared fully with us earlier we know that the one known as N is full of regret that it cannot put these queries to us in person. We would address this.

Within this instrument’s mind are many stories from her holy work called the Bible. There are many, many instances within this work in which healing occurs. The one known as Elijah demonstrated the extent to which a healer will go to express a literal understanding of healing…

[Side one of tape ends.]

…asked to heal one who was dead, lay upon the body of the patient, hand to hand, foot to foot, mouth to mouth, literally breathing life into the patient. The one known as Jesus healed even when it was not aware it had been asked. We refer to the incident where a woman who was ill touched the hem of the one known as Jesus’ robe and was healed. The one known as Jesus knew healing had taken place, for it felt the power go forth. It did not intend this personally. It was an instrument through which healing came.

We would ask simply that the healer to whom we now speak, the one known as N, if this entity would find it desirable to allow the concerns–and there are many–to recede on a daily basis. Perhaps there is energy for a good meditation; perhaps there is not. We ask in this latter case, then, that the one known as N simply begin to contemplate a few concepts. Primary among these concepts is the practice of the simple presence of the infinite One. How can one practice this presence without the meditating? In the case where meditation has become difficult or impossible for the self as it perceives the situation, we would suggest some physical means, however momentary, of dwelling within the creation of the Father. Contemplate the sun, which gives so generously that life and light which is so welcomed as the springtime nears. Stand beneath the tree which is generating itself from light and offering oxygen to its companion upon the earth plane, the human and all animals, while all animals move about their business, breathing out just that which trees and plant life need, your carbon dioxide. Observe the way in which events fall, seeming, when looking back upon them, so right, so inevitable. Gaze about the self to find any arrhythmic or out of place detail in the creation of the Father. Is there any except that which man has imposed upon the creation of the Father?

The nature of faith is that it is what one claims it is. Questioning faith is useful only in the context of a life in faith where the seeker has become able to posit faith as the promise that never becomes a lie, regardless of all appearances. Thusly, faith is often quite incomprehensible. However, faith is served by the simple act of will, the refusal to stop believing. We commend this to the attention of all seekers. The simple assertion of a life in faith creates, when persistently invoked, the life in faith. Harder and more rewarding work for the spiritual seeker cannot be conceived.

May each, while crashing upon the craggy reefs of doubt and disbelief, confusion, and inner anguish, stand firm on one thing: that is, love. You may call it faith, or love, or truth, or, as this instrument often does, Christ, but the claiming of this precious thing is a most creative choice.

We leave this instrument reluctantly. We so enjoy these workings, so enjoy the converse with each dear entity. We bless each, thank each, and leave each as always in the love and the ineffable light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of the principle of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning I went outside and was able to get the wiper blade attached to the rear window of my car. Then I drove over to the vet’s and got some lactulose for Benny as she seems to be constipated. When I got back home I dug up enough soil from the corner of the garden to make a start in filling the first two layers of the clay tile pipes that are exposed on the outer edge of the pyramid shape that I created yesterday next to the Secret Garden in the back yard.

This afternoon I finished filling in the dirt in the first two of the clay tile pipes, and then I transplanted the flowers that I bought at Paul’s Fruit Market yesterday into an area of the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden which seems to have lost a number of flowers to the deer.

Healing Unwellness

I am of the principle of the spirit of the love of Christ. I greet you in the holy name of Jesus the Christ.

Put your hand in front of your face. See the solidity, the careful architecture of its bones and tendons, its sinews, and the delicate covering which sheaths the mighty machine that can do so many, many things.

Gaze at the perfection of the weight-bearing feet which are constructed in such a way that all of the weight of a very large physical body may rest comfortably. And with healthy strides, distance may be eaten up.

Consider the grand and perfect functioning of each and every portion of your physical body and see the beauty of its design. And each time that you may feel the symptom of unwellness of any kind, recall that feeling of honor and pride in the perfection of the design of this body of yours and know that in each cell that perfection vibrates.

So, thinking upon the word of the Lord, Jesus Christ, remember the perfection of all things and allow the releasing of that which binds you to your unwellness.

We leave you in the peace and the love of Jesus the Christ. 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 Q’uo quote comes from January 30, 1994:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light. At this time we would offer ourselves in the attempt to speak to any further queries which those present may have for us. Is there a query at this time?

Questioner: I am still interested in the physical manifestation in our bodies of the… perhaps the tension that’s produced by this seeking of the truth, or the time when you’re searching for the truth. Can you speak to that further?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We shall attempt to do so. As an entity perceives the life experience moving through it, and before and around it, it has those means of dealing with this basic element of life that you would call the belief system. This is a means of containing that which is perceived as truth, but which has been in some ways distorted by the very attempt to perceive it and define it in such and such a way so that it will be useful to the entity as it grows. Such distortions are necessary in order to be able to utilize the life experience in a certain fashion that is congruent with what you would call pre-incarnative choices or lessons.

Thus, as a means of setting the stage, shall we say, each entity defines, confines, and refines the truth so that the opportunities it desires are likely to be presented. To hold that which is true, that which is love without end and with complete compassion in a confined or compacted way that you would call your own illusion, the stage upon which you move, is to invoke or require a certain amount of what you have called tension—mental, emotional, physical and spiritual attention, shall we say. The belief system that has been chosen, then, confines in a, shall we say, intense or restrictive fashion, that which is limitless, that which has no bounds. This takes an effort on all levels of energy; this effort you perceive as tension. This is why a great feeling of relief and release is experienced by those who are able to extend or in some cases remove the boundaries of definition upon that which is love.

Thus, your physical vehicle takes upon itself various conformations that are symbolic representation of mental belief boundaries. There are possible an infinite number of bodily responses that you would see as a disease of some form that are a result of the mental configuration. As the mind/body/spirit complex that each entity is makes choices to move in other belief directions there is often the release of the tension, the configuration of the body corresponding to that release of the mind, the emotions as well. Thus, you see in many cases that the change of belief system or component of that system affects the actual configuration of the physical vehicle.

Questioner’s question was: “I am still interested in the physical manifestation in our bodies, the tension that’s produced by this seeking of the truth. Can you speak to that further? Q’uo began by saying that as the seeker feels its life experience moving through it, it uses its belief system to perceive its meaning, but the act of perception itself tends to distort the life experience in a way which is congruent with learning the pre-incarnative lessons. Then Q’uo said that to hold that which is true–the basic lesson of love without end in a compacted way within the third-density illusion–requires effort on all levels of energy which is perceived as tension, and in order to relieve that tension one must remove the strict boundaries of one’s definition of love. Q’uo went on to say that these mental definitions can produce a variety of bodily diseases which would require a change of mental or emotional definitions in order to improve the health of the physical body. In 61.7, Ra described how this process works:

Questioner: Second question: could you give an example of how feelings affect portions of the body and the sensations of the body?

Ra: I am Ra. It is nearly impossible to speak generally of these mechanisms, for each entity of proper seniority has its own programming. Of the less aware entities we may say that the connection will often seem random as the higher self continues producing catalyst until a bias occurs. In each programmed individual the sensitivities are far more active and, as we have said, that catalyst not used fully by the mind and spirit is given to the body.

Thus you may see in this entity the numbing of the arms and the hands signifying this entity’s failure to surrender to the loss of control over the life. Thus this drama is enacted in the physical distortion complex.

In the questioner we may see the desire not to be carrying the load it carries given as physical manifestation of the soreness of those muscles for carrying used. That which is truly needed to be carried is a pre-incarnative responsibility which seems highly inconvenient.

In the case of the scribe we see a weariness and numbness of feelings ensuing from lack of using catalyst designed to sensitize this entity to quite significant influxes of unfamiliar distortion complexes of the mental/emotional and spiritual level. As the numbness removes itself from the higher or more responsive complexes the bodily complex distortions will vanish. This is true also of the other examples.

We would note at this time that the totally efficient use of catalyst upon your plane is extremely rare.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Questioner: No, thank you.

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

Questioner: D had a question that I was interested in, and it had to do with when you have experienced a feeling of release—a place where you have gotten at a truth and seen a true, purified version of what held you in thrall in times past, and you’ve seen that and you’ve experienced that—how can you complete this release so as to finish most appropriately that energy and really, really release that whole complex of held tension that has really sort of been an untruth…

Questioner: Actually, also, after listening to what you have just said, I’m beginning to question as to whether or not the intensity was the actual holding onto a belief system and perhaps it wasn’t even a releasing but it was, rather, a battle of wills between the mental belief system still holding on to something and another kind of truth attempting to come through, and perhaps that was really inappropriate tension felt as opposed to healing tension that would have been released.

Questioner: Can you make anything of that… can you comment?

I am Q’uo, and we have sufficient information for a response, we believe. We give this instrument the image of a stream full of rocks of various sizes which divert the flow of water according to the size and the placement of the rock. The freeing of one’s belief system, the removing of the boundaries, is much like removing of the rocks one by one from the stream so that the full force of the water’s flow may be felt without distortion.

Thus, when one moves in consciousness to alter the beliefs, one allows the intelligent energy that is love and life itself to move in a less restricted fashion which is more freely able to express the power of love to transform. Thus, the release can be seen as a harmonizing effort that allows energy to be more available to the entity to be—we correct this instrument—to be consciously used. The seating of this release or healing may best be accomplished by observing in the meditative state the condition as it was, the nature of the distortion, the removal of same, and the giving of thanksgiving to the one Creator for the opportunity to more fully experience and express the energy of love.

Is there a further query, my sisters?

Questioner: Not for my part, thank you.

Carla: I’m still a little confused here. I still can’t determine whether or not there are a couple of boulders in that stream, and although I may be consciously attempting to allow that stream to flow, there is an unwillingness to allow that due to the belief system, and although I can go and meditate on such a situation, I’m just a little confused about how to go about that because I don’t quite understand if what has occurred was a healing process or was the exact opposite, in which case I need to know which it was, so that if it were the exact opposite I would be able to go about healing that in another way than I attempted to do so with Jim earlier. I would be… maybe less tense on my physical vehicle. Can you comment in any way without infringing?

I am Q’uo, and we may speak in a general fashion to suggest that the experience which you describe is one which heals; that is the facing of fear; the recognition of truth. There is the removal of restriction which is a portion of the realignment of mental beliefs; as each pebble is removed from the stream there is the healing, as you would call it. However, it must be recognized that each pebble, rock, or boulder allows water to move around in such a fashion as to carve, shall we say, a certain groove within the entity’s mind/body/spirit complex that is in accordance with pre-incarnative choices so that the analogy which you mentioned earlier holds true. If one can experience great pain carved by much experience in the life pattern, then one can also experience its opposite, the great joy as well. Each entity has come to incarnation to be able to move from chosen parameters to other chosen parameters. The parameters for each incarnation include greater and greater opportunity for experiencing and expressing love. However, there must be the distortion of that which is whole into that which is many for the many to be able to choose the path back to the One.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: The only other thing I was just curious about was what happens energetically when your physical vehicle does go through such a jolting thing? How does the energy as it is pulsing and raging through your physical vehicle—what does that do? Does it kind of vibrate off what has been held in? Can you describe the process energetically, speaking of what happens when what has otherwise been termed as a healing crisis comes through? We experience the trauma in order to be able to release it. Can you explain that process briefly in an energetic way?

I am Q’uo, and we shall attempt this, my sister. As the energy is allowed to flow more freely, the vehicle that is physical and the vehicle that is mental and emotional as well tends to vibrate more harmoniously, that is to say, there are less discordant vibrations. It is as though a loose nut or bolt within your automobile has been tightened so that there is less jarring vibration upon the road.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Questioner: Then what is the jarring that is experienced? Is that a result of releasing? Why do we feel the exact opposite of what you have described has occurred? To the human physical vehicle, it feels like uncontrollable vibration. It feels as if this is fully electric and cannot… or is that the potential for being able to hold that kind of energy? I just feel the opposite of what you have just said is occurring.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. The process by which the physical vehicle comes into greater harmony and less jarring vibrations is one in which the mental configuration which has been holding that which we have called love or truth in a confined manner, allows that truth now to flow by removing the boundary. The boundary belief is that which has been, shall we say, out of place in the true alignment of energy and has been holding the energy of love in a difficult position, shall we say. To release that energy requires that which held that energy—the mind and emotional components—to fall into a new alignment.

This falling into place, even though it is from that which is less harmonious to that which is more harmonious with energy flow, yet is a jar to the system which was held in such and such a fashion. However, the energy of love will eventually allow this new configuration to express itself in a more harmonious fashion which then is the new steady state of the mind/body/spirit complex.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you.

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

Carla: One other thing, and it may be irrelevant, and you can certainly say if it is. R and I were attempting to do some healing work, and we only had a concern that what we were attempting to do might have been insignificant, or invalid, or transient, or just not worthy of our attempts, and we were wondering if you could comment on the purpose, or if there is validity to uniting through dreamwork purposefully to be able to rebalance and heal more with the power with two as opposed to one individually. And whether or not that reverberated out in any direction other than just the two working on that, if there was any purpose or any reason that we should see continuing in that direction?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We find that the desire to be of service to others through the healing process is one which has great merit within your illusion. The task which you have set for yourselves is one which is difficult enough and which requires the mastery of many skills, is one which through the practice through these skills will reverberate to other areas of your incarnation and perhaps others as well. The practice of each of these skills will require the intensive dedication of effort. This, in the service of others, is quite helpful in the polarizing process and in the disciplining of the personality in particular.

Is there another query, my sister?

Carla: I guess we picked a tough nuts thing to do, huh, R? I don’t think so, not for me.

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

Questioner: Are you aware of my discomfort at this time?

I am Q’uo, and we are not specifically aware of your discomfort. However, if there is discomfort in the perception of our vibration, we would ask that you mentally alert us to this fact so that we might change our approach to your vibrational field.

Questioner: I feel like I am the one that has to change because I am resisting out of fear.

I am Q’uo. We would ask if there is some fear to which we may speak or some way that we might be of service? Could you speak more of your fear?

Questioner: Well, I’ve had this really hard time hanging on to myself, like I feel like I am being lured away, and I was wondering if there was someone like you that was trying to speak through me?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We have not attempted to speak through your instrument, nor are we aware of other entities attempting that as well. However, we are aware that you are a sensitive instrument which is open to impression, and we perceive that you have felt our vibration in a more accentuated manner than most entities are able to perceive. We would recommend that the request be made that we reduce the amount of the conditioning vibration which we make available to those who sit in the circle of working with us.

Questioner: So, I need to tell you guys to turn it down a little?

Q’uo: I am Q’uo, and this is basically correct.

Questioner: Okay. I am really uncomfortable. You spoke earlier about beings who we can’t see but who help us. You said that there are those who are only here to serve. Is that what you do?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your question, my sister. The entities which serve the third-density population of your planet as guides are those who are much like yourselves in many cases except that at this time they are not incarnate and have chosen a means of service that is the guide, the teacher, the helper, the unseen hand that aids in the helpful coincidences, shall we say, within each entity’s life pattern.

We are those which come from elsewhere other than your own planetary sphere who answer the call of many upon your planet for information pertaining to the nature of the creation, the one original Thought that we see as the one Creator. Thus, we answer a call and serve as we are asked in the name of the one Creator.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Questioner: Do you ever get bored?

[Carla begins laughing.]

Carla: I’m sorry… [chuckles].

I am Q’uo, and we may assure you, my sister, that the creation is varied enough that we find no opportunity for boredom, as you would call it. We are overjoyed at the opportunity to observe the one Creator in the process of knowing Itself in as many ways as any entity could possibly imagine. We see the one Creation as a great field of energy playing with energy.

Is there a final query at this time?

Questioner: Can you hear us thinking our questions or do we have to speak them?

I am Q’uo, and we ask that entities verbalize queries so that we do not infringe upon free will by, as you would say, reading the thoughts.

Is there a final query?

Carla: I would ask as a final query that you give suggestions on ways to put one’s mind at ease when one does feel somehow invaded by energies which seem to want to invade. Even if that perception is incorrect, there is still stress. Could you just suggest some resources for when that would occur, how she would perceive?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. If any entity feels that it is being, as you would say, invaded or overtaken by any other entity of an unseen nature, that the one feeling invasion request the entity invading to leave, and that this request be made in the name of that concept, entity or quality which the entity being invaded holds most dear in the life pattern, be that the quality of love, of truth, of service or an entity such as in the name of Jesus the Christ, the name of the Buddha or the name of any saint or angel that an entity may feel affinity, for that if this request is given with the whole heart that the entity invading will be required to leave, and then the entity giving the request would be advised to circle the self in light and in love so that the shield of light and love might be in place.

At this time…

Carla: Wait, Q’uo! Could we stop for a sec’? I really need to drag this back to this point. I just had this question that was bothering me. Just stepping back to the chakras, and the experience that you had described which was the releasing of the mental belief system, which is the yellow ray, as I believe. How come the upper portion of the body was what went through the “trauma,” as opposed to the lower rays which were being adjusted? Why would the vibration be from, say, the heart up, as opposed to… from what was felt from the heart up, not from the lower rays? They seemed to be rather relaxed.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. However, we must apologize for being unable to answer, for we find that the answer would be an infringement upon your own choice-making ability and responsibility. We do not wish to do that work which we find you have set for yourself.

Carla: I gotcha. Thanks anyway.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you once again, my sister. We find that we must leave this group and this instrument at this time, for we have spoken overly long and have wearied many here, and we apologize for the length of our discourse, but we are overjoyed at the opportunity to be with you and to feel the intensity of your desire to seek that which you call the truth. We seek with you that same truth, and walk as brothers and sisters, offering a hand when asked and offering love at all times. We are known to you as those of Q’uo, and leave each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I vacuumed the first floor of the house. Then I went outside where, for the last few years, I have stored a number of 100-year old clay tile drainage pipes that used to be connected to the sump pumps in my basement. I asked my neighbor’s permission to dig them up about seven years ago because over time they became half clogged up with mud, and they were not draining water properly. So I dug them up and replaced them with six-inch plastic PVC pipes. Now I decided to clean them up and clean the stone area they have been stored on so that I could make a pyramid structure out of them. There are about 35 pipes 10 inches in diameter and about 10 pipes 4 inches in diameter that I have begun to make a pyramid out of. I got about 90 percent of it done, and will try to finish it tomorrow.

This afternoon I drove over to Bachman’s Subaru to see if they had gotten the rear window wiper for my car yet. I paid for the wiper and was told that it is easy to install myself, so I will try to do that tomorrow as well. On the way home I stopped at the vet’s to pick up some meds for Bosco and Benny. Then I stopped at AutoZone to pick up a couple of bottles of 50:1 2-cycle engine oil. Then I stopped at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself and a tray of flowers to replace one area in the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden where deer have eaten quite a few flowers. My last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I picked up a prescription and some non-food items.

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

Turn To The Creation

I am of the spirit of the Love of Jesus Christ, and I greet you in the consciousness of Love.

The faith of many has been destroyed by dependence upon the outer reality. The outer reality is as a room which no one may clean and no mop may scour. The eye of man sees many broken things in the outer world and loses heart. Yet before the Spirit can flow through a life, first the heart must be turned to hope.

If hope cannot be found in outer things, then perhaps words have failed, and it is time for the seeker to turn in the direction of the creation to observe those things in the creation which man has not broken or crippled. The song of the bird, the movement of the breeze, and the beauty of sunsets and sunrises still express and manifest the glory and wonder of a perfect creation. When words fail, turn to those things which know not how to avoid manifesting the full consciousness of Love.

We leave you in love and peace, 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 Q’uo quote comes from January 30, 1994:

The question this afternoon has to do with facing the truth, telling the truth and feeling a balancing or release of limitations of fears, and we’re wondering how the facing of fears, the telling of truth, affects our growth either mentally, emotionally, spiritually or physically. It is said, “Know the truth and it will set you free.” How exactly does this work in our daily lives as we’re trying to recognize the truth and tell the truth?

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is our pleasure and privilege to join your circle of seeking this evening. We bless and thank each of you for calling us to your group to share our thoughts and opinions with you. As always, we ask that our words be listened to as you would listen to any friend, taking that which seems to you to be helpful and leaving the rest behind, for we do not claim infallibility, but rather assure you that we are far from perfected. There is much for us to learn. We are as you, those who seek the truth.

Perhaps that is where we shall start to discuss the concept of healing by the truth. This instrument’s mind is furnished with much detail concerning the practice of the religion which you call Christianity. Consequently, we find the nearest example available to us is often, when working with this instrument, one which comes from the scripture which you call the Holy Bible. In this particular instance, the scene within which truth is sought is that scene of the one known as Jesus’ trial, scourging, and crucifixion. While the process of the trial was working itself out, the civil authority having to do with the one known as Jesus—the one known as Pilate—pondered long that which the one known as Jesus offered and this entity’s comment was, “What is truth?” This entity could not find within the true statements made by each entity an overriding truth which would create choice. Consequently, this entity walked away from the debate giving control over to others rather than answering that question.

One truth seemingly obvious was the sincerity and the ultimate dignity of the one known as Jesus. The one known as Pilate wrote a sign for this entity as this entity suffered and died. The sign read, “The King of the Jews.” This was Pilate’s truth. Those who wished this entity stopped, if not killed, saw that this entity known as Jesus had the capacity to rouse his countrymen to civil rebellion. They feared that this entity would indeed ascend to an Earthly throne, disturbing greatly the peace and tranquility of the empire of Rome.

The one known as Jesus also possessed a truth. The scope of this entity’s truth was overarching a truth of another level of beingness and witnessing to the truth. For the one known as Jesus, the truth of its being was not applicable to the world of temporal affairs. Yet to witness to this truth that was otherworldly, this entity saw virtue and value and truth in the sacrifice of all Earthly energy and this entity moved willingly and deliberately towards that cross upon which it was indeed crucified. This truth was that for this entity, there was a freedom. That freedom was complete service. This entity felt that it was given the job of so dying and then showing itself to bear life that the world would come by this truth to its own truth and ultimate freedom.

To find the truth in this story is impossible, for there were several levels of true feeling, true fact, true intention. The truth is most slippery. It recedes from the attempt to pin it down, for that which you experience is not truth. That which you experience within your own consciousness is seldom truth. Truth is living and truth alters constantly in its appearance as the processes of perception circle the concept of truth, looking for a way to settle upon a complete surety of truth.

The question this afternoon has to do with facing the truth, telling the truth and feeling a balancing or release of limitations of fears, and we’re wondering how the facing of fears, the telling of truth, affects our growth either mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or physically. Q’uo began by saying that in the trial of Jesus by the one known as Pilate, he had asked Jesus many questions including “What is truth?” Pilate pondered his question without finding an answer, so he walked away from the debate and simply made a sign to put on Jesus’s cross which read: “The King of the Jews.” And this was Pilate’s truth. Q’uo continued by saying that many felt Jesus would become an earthly king and threaten the empire of the Romans, but Jesus’s truth was not of an earthly nature as he saw his truth was that of the freedom of providing the ultimate service of giving his life so that others might know that life itself was eternal. Then Q’uo said that truth was difficult to determine because it is not what we experience, and it is alive, and it continues to be altered by the way it is perceived. On April 15, 1984, Latwii described the illusive nature of truth:

The subconscious mind of each entity which seeks the truth contains many forms and symbols which have meaning to the entity which the entity may not be familiar with consciously. Yet, when the form or symbol presents itself in a moment which is unexpected, there arise within the entity many connotations, inspirations, and suggestions in holographic form, shall we say, that present yet one more piece to the puzzle, the puzzle of what is truth and who, in truth, am I, the seeker. As you seek these forms and others, and experience various phenomena, you will most often be puzzled. The message will not be clear at once, and, indeed, may never be clear to your incarnation, yet each time the conscious mind shall be enticed by that which is mysterious.

This is the nature of the seeking. Always there are guides, signposts, surprises, and that which is in general mysterious in order that the seeker might travel further and, in some sense, gain an insight into the nature of its own being and the creation through which it moves.

Now, let us pull back to a position where we examine simply what brought each here. Each feels within an identity and that identity is felt by each to be authentic and true. Each comes to this circle of seeking hoping to encounter the truest part of the self, for within the energies of a group lie tremendous power, that power of hope and intention of desire and yearning. We come to share our perception that all things are one, and that one thing is love. The love that created all that there is, is a concept, an original Thought of such a powerful nature as is unimaginable. This articulated thought or Logos called Love has a vibration. This vibration is the truth, for it is all that there is and each of you is at heart that vibration and that vibration alone. The rest is illusion.

We speak to groups like this simply encouraging each to more and more attempt to vibrate in accordance with the one original Vibration, and as the vibratory level rises from the sea of confusion, which is the life experience, it partakes more and more of vibration closer to that one original Thought.

Each of you is not the God in some conscious sense but Love, and you hunger for the freedom of your true nature and seek to move into more and more close vibratory similarity to that true vibration or nature which is Love. When the truth is a vibration, perhaps it can be seen that the truth is a very difficult concept about which to speak, for after one says the simple truth, so called, that there is a vibration which each intuits within and seeks and hungers for, after this each entity moves out of the original concept into manifestation.

Before your incarnational experience begins, already you are isolated from the truth because you have self-consciousness as a spirit or entity with a soul. Before you entered your mother’s womb, already you were a stranger to truth, hungering to return to that vibratory configuration in which truth is known but the self is lost. And then, illusion already completely surrounding and filling you, you entered into a heavy chemical body, a physical vehicle which moves your consciousness around and generously supplies that consciousness with that which the senses pick up and report to the brain. Each impression is a true one, yet each impression is biased by your perception of it.

You have perhaps heard the old adage that no two witness’ report an accident the same. What is truth? Yet you seek and experience a growing amount of truth. The energies within you bring that present moment in a cyclical manner so that each entity will have its cycles, times when—we correct this instrument—within which they are more well suited to do work in consciousness attempting to find a higher truth and times when it is better to simply shower the self with compassion, for compassion is a truth regardless of the object of that expression of self.

We encourage each to loosen and free this concept of truth from any rigid limitations, for the seeker on this journey towards truth walks with much aid. Each seeker has cooperation and support from the world which is unseen. There are guides and essences which live in order to serve the seeker and to further that seeker’s search, so that instead of there being the truth here and then the truth further on, lesson one and lesson two, rather there is a process whereby each step the pilgrim takes has a point of balance which is graceful and skillful. The seeker then simply attempts to sense where that beam lies, how that ray falls, that ray of light unseen, for it lies directly down the middle of the spiritual path.

We would encourage you to think of the levels of truth as you go through your moments, your hours, your days and your years. There is the light and the momentary truth. The fact, the schedules and processes of your worldly life contain vast numbers of these facts, these simple truths. “The garbage is picked up on Monday. I am supposed to be at work at 9 a.m. The Superbowl is today.” These are truths. They are not truths which in any way better equip you to live according to spiritual principles. There is no healing in them, yet they are the truth.

At a deeper level, there is a true self. That true self within has its vagrant moods and there is emotional truth in hewing with fidelity to these inner moods. It is excellent practice to know what is going on within, to be as aware as possible of the deeper energies, the emotions which underlie the experiences. Without judging the self, there is great healing in simply acknowledging the nature of the self as it is self-perceived. The acceptance of the emotional makeup of the self is very freeing if it is wholehearted, for there is great difficulty in altering that nature if it is not first completely accepted, yet the truth for which each seeker yearns is that truth which cannot be accessible, not by words, not by converse, but only by the inner experiencing of things far too inimitable to be available for description.

Now Q’uo said that each seeker feels that it has an identity within itself that is its true identity and utilizes the group energy to seek that identity as the Logos, the Love that has created all that is, and It has a vibration which is truth, and all else is illusion. Q’uo went on to say that before we incarnated we were seeking the truth of our being, and then our body moves us around in such a way that our senses give our brain many impressions which are biased by our perceptions of them. Then Q’uo said that as we perceive more and more the nature of truth that we should free ourselves from the limitations of this truth by seeking assistance from our guides to find the light of truth which shines down the middle of our spiritual path. Q’uo continued by saying that at the deeper levels of our self is our true self, and it is well to accept this emotional nature of our self as it is very freeing to experience as it is too unique to be able to be described. On October 31, 1976, Hatonn spoke of our true self:

First, each of you who is in this plane of existence has one purpose which is of a primary nature. That purpose is to become aware of your true self and in so doing you begin to vibrate in harmony with that true self; that is, to vibrate within the harmonies of Love. This one vibratory Thought created all that there is and as you come into harmony with this Thought you become a beacon of light that lights all those about you. This is your primary service. Whatever else there is for you to do it is best served by you becoming more and more able to be who you truly are. Being is always more important than doing, for if one acts from the heart of one’s being, one acts very lovingly.

The hunger within the seeker is to see the face of the infinite One, and there is no face for that infinite intelligence, rather that face is your own, and that face is the entity next to you and that face is the face of nature. Everything that you see both displays and completely obscures that face of deity. Spiritual seeking is a process in which the attempt is made and made and made again to be honest with the self, to submit the self to the disciplines which strip away illusion, how the seeker strives to clear the mind, to become more authentic, to become more self-aware, to confront the self where it is hiding from the self.

You speak in your query of fears in attempting to speak truth to those fears, yet we suggest that these fears are also a truth and fear is not something to be rooted out before its time. Each of you has an infinite amount of time in which to seek and find the one infinite Creator. You have no need to rush. The Creator will not leave. The creation may fade away, yet you and the Creator shall seek each other until, in the glory of final awareness, the self is given away so that that separate self might become a portion of the only portion that there is in reality: intelligent infinity or Love.

Now let us come back from the ethers to the self struggling to know more of the truth, struggling to face the fears that hold the self captive. We spoke earlier of compassion being a truth. It is well to equip the self with the awareness that compassion is always truth. When entities such as you attempt to be, as you call it, “too nice,” yet in this attempt is truth. It is not a truth that makes you feel good, for in expressing compassion, you are allowing the other to see only the truth of love in its unabridged form. You become a witness to the truth that nothing matters as much as loving.

Over against this truth is another truth that is involved with where you are as an entity in your cycle of expressing and not expressing. If you are in a strong and powerful place in your spiritual cycles, it is possible that manifesting the truth of compassion is more satisfying to you than expressing your emotional feelings. At a weaker or more transparent part of this cycle, it is actually harmful to you as an entity—or we could perhaps say self-sacrificing—to express compassion, for there is the emotional lack of ability to give up the truth of another color which would be the truth of the emotions which may have the need to express seemingly negative information. Therefore, it is not always skillful to be compassionate. It is well to know the self well enough to see when compassion alone is the truth to tell and when instead it would be more skillful to speak seemingly selfishly but honestly in expressing the limitations and the needs of the self.

The truth, it is said, shall set you free. This was in your query. How does it set you free? We hope that you may see that there are levels of truth. The more deep or profound truths set the spirit free at a more profound level. The use of the intelligence is encouraged in the attempt to accurately estimate the capacity of the self to be at any one level of the truth. For instance, in the one known as Jesus, this entity’s truth was at the profound level which moves beyond all fear of death or dissolution. The truth this entity saw was that it could embrace the grave and willingly go down into it because the entity’s true nature was the Creator and this entity’s true place was eternity. This is your highest truth also, but you will note that the one known as Jesus did not go to his death before the various levels of truth of all others so coagulated and combined as to be that time destiny had provided for the one known as Jesus to in one moment express that truth.

Each of you does well to open your sensing mechanisms and look to your perceptions. Certainly it is well to seek that truth which lies in and beyond the fears of each, but more than that, know yourselves as pilgrims which have many, many levels and be not harsh with yourself when you find yourself expressing that which you perceive is not entirely true. For the freedom truth promises is involved in that release from trying, seeking, and making things happen. The truth, in a way, is a process. That process is one in which we often encourage each to come to the place of ultimate quiet within, that all the world’s tears and hopes and untruths and fears may at last cease and a door open within. Across that threshold each walks into the silence of the heart. Within that silence lies all that there is, and it is all holy. Each of you now stands on holy ground. The truth of your being is within your silent heart. Listen each day if you can to that silence. Within that silence a silent voice speaks love to you. This is truth. All your fears shall fetch up against this rock and flow away.

Then Q’uo said that the seeker desires to see the face of the infinite One, and everything that the seeker sees reveals and hides that face of deity so that the spiritual path is to strip away all illusion of the self and to become more authentic and self-aware. Q’uo went on to say that we should not worry about fearing how to speak the truth to our fears because we have an infinity of time to do so, and at some point in the distant future we shall move from our separate self and become a part of the intelligent infinity of Love. They said that in order to break free of fear we can rely on giving compassion to others because the greatest truth is giving love to others. Then Q’uo said that it is not always skillful to be compassionate because it may be necessary at some time to become aware of one’s difficult emotions and sharing the limitations and the needs of the self. Q’uo went on to say that the old saying is that “the truth will set you free”, and there are deeper layers of truth within us that will set our spirit free so that we need to use our intelligence to determine our ability to be a various level of truth. Then Q’uo completed their reply by saying: “Each of you now stands on holy ground. The truth of your being is within your silent heart. Listen each day if you can to that silence. Within that silence a silent voice speaks love to you. This is truth. All your fears shall fetch up against this rock and flow away.” On March 23, 1993, Q’uo spoke about the silent voice that speaks love to us:

The information which fills the silence of the listening heart is the wordless and unknowable nature of the mystery of all that there is in its full hallowed sanctity. Practicing this meditation, you open your self to your deeper, truer, mysterious Self, the very heart of all that there is. And because this mystery has been potentiated to communicate within illusion, each time you move into this silent presence it speaks a new mystery, a new message of life and wholeness. It does not take a specific credo to move into the pregnant, mysterious silence. It takes a desire to seek the truth which is great enough for you to choose to spend the precious coin of time in listening to the silent voice of your true nature, which guidance enunciates wordlessly to the resonating seat of mystery and holiness within you.

We would at this time thank this instrument for its service, and transfer this contact to the one known as Jim. We leave this instrument in love and light. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I went outside and used my trimmer to trim all of the areas that my mower could not get to when I cut the grass two days ago. I got the side yard, the front yard, and the back yard done before taking a break for lunch.  

This afternoon I went back outside and used my water pump to pump some of the 4 inches of rainwater from yesterday’s two thunderstorms out of the fishpond so the fountain could shoot up to its normal height. Then I used my trimmer to weed the Moss Garden. Then I used my backpack blower to blow the Moss Garden clean as well as all of the walkways and driveway.

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

June 27

The Myth Of Reality

I am the spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ and greet you in the consciousness of Love.

The myth of reality continues every moment, and you who experience this myth are hard put to see through it. Reality lies beneath the surface of outer things and beyond the meaning of minds and words. Reality is the province of the Spirit of Love. It is an invisible reality which can only manifest shadows of itself within the outer world.

As you seek to make your life more real, seek within in the innermost portion of your being, for in that stronghold the Spirit of Love holds full sway when given the opportunity.

Look, too, beyond the surface of the outer world into the realm of the beauty of meaning which lies behind what the senses may have you feel. For the spirit is everywhere immanent, yet never fully disclosed unless one has the desire to see and hear reality.

We leave you in the profound peace of the reality 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 Q’uo quote comes from January 23, 1994:

The question this afternoon has to do with the phenomenon that we’ve noticed over the years—a number of people have read the Law of One books and have become interested enough in the information to want to come visit us, and have indeed done so for a period of days, or even just a few hours, so that as time goes on we collect a growing family of very close and harmonious spiritual seekers, all of whom are focused around the Law of One information. When they’re here they feel like there is some sort of transformative experience of some kind, in differing degrees of intensity, I guess you’d say, and we’re kind of wondering just how this works. We know that we don’t do anything in particular—we just live our lives here and people come and feel very much akin to everything that’s going on and become a member of a family. How does this work? Do you have any comments on this for our group and for any group that seeks to be of service to others?

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are most privileged to come to your circle of seeking this evening to share with you our thoughts concerning your question. We thank each for the gift of presence and the further gift of direction to our remarks. We enjoy being able to address a certain topic or question and thank each for taking the care in shaping your query that you do. As always, we ask each to take from our opinions those that seem to have that personal ring of truth and let the balance go, for we are fallible and prone to error.

As we focus upon this question of what it is that is occurring with entities making the pilgrimages to your dwelling, we find we need go no further than the present moment to begin the discussion. At this present moment there is a small group gathered expressly to seek along lines of spiritual inquiry. To this modest gathering have—we correct this instrument—has come myriads of what you would term inner planes and outer planes entities, which flock to those places where light is being generated by natives, shall we say, of your sphere in order both to join in the joy of the experience and to lend their limitless light to the light which, by your seeking together, you have also begun to create yourselves.

In this present moment, then, your small group has fulfilled that for which a group would exist—that is, that there has been aid given to those who are in this circle, for each entity alone could be prayerful, or meditative, and certainly do much beautiful work in consciousness. However, when the small group gathers, the one and one and one become more than two or three. They become, indeed, the entirety of creation. And to that universe, so well represented by so few, comes the one infinite Creator in the active or energetic mode.

If we were to ask any of those present how well they could attract the love and the caring of the infinite One, perhaps the answer would seem to be along lines of hard personal spiritual work, prayer and fasting, or some difficult task such as the silence over an extended period. Yet we say to you that when even the smallest group gathers seeking the Creator, the Creator is immediately present, and listens carefully to the requests made by seekers.

A light center, then, fulfills that quoted from the one known as Jesus: “When two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them.” To this small group, then, of the one known as R, the one known as Jim, and the one known as Carla come countless hosts, some which you would call angels, others which you might call extraterrestrials. All who seek to add to the lightening of this sphere. All these come and lend their aid, seeking, as you seek, the presence of the eternal within the finite, that magic point of flame where Spirit touches matter and the creation is forever altered by that light.

When entities such as yourselves decide to live lives of devotion and service, there are many, many avenues for how to proceed—we correct this instrument—avenues along which one may proceed. The organizational questions seem important, and indeed to some extent they are, for in the, shall we say, legal skeleton of such a group as yours, it is well to align the legal organization along lines of ethical and general impeccability.

But there is much more to the organization than the framework on paper. There is that living edifice which walks upon two legs. Each of those which associates itself with such an organization is also that which is always intended to be most clean and without lie. With these requirements carefully met insofar as humanly possible, the organization then has simply to abide.

The power of abiding is deep, and its roots lie solidly within the archetypical. We are aware that you seek more information along this archetypical line of query, and would say that in grasping just how the entity called L/L works one may see the archetype being called upon. The way of this group has been to sacrifice this or that within the personal lives of those who began it in order to create the sure and certain time when the meditation, the study, the questioning might be trusted and counted upon to occur. Even within the physical dwelling which houses both the personal and the organizational portions of the existence of the ones known as Jim and Carla there have been sacrifices, the former living room becoming an office and so forth.

Each having done what was necessary in order to bring L/L into manifestation, each now may simply abide. We look to the archetype of the Hanged Man. This is your archetype. Into manifestation you offer the self and all the life, knowing that it literally turns one upside down. This you accepted, and so it comes into manifestation with plenty and bounty as its characteristics.

Insofar as these sacrifices of time and money and talent have been given purely, and indeed we do find this to be so, just to that extent this nexus of spiritual light and energy may then be used as that beacon to which other spiritual seekers may set their course.

The group question this week was: What is it that is occurring with entities making the pilgrimages to our dwelling as students of the Law of One who experience transformative experiences while they are here? Q’uo began their response by looking at the present group as those whose spiritual work was such that even two or three who gathered together were as the entire creation and attracted the attention of inner and outer planes entities, angels, extraterrestrials, and the Creator who listens and responds to the requests that the group makes. Then Q’uo said that not only should Carla, R, and I focus on living lives of devotion to seeking the truth, but there should also be an effort to align the legal organization along lines of ethical and general impeccability. Q’uo continued by saying that the members of L/L Research needed to make personal sacrifices in the manner of the archetype of the Hanged Man so that meditation, study, and questioning times could be scheduled in a way that seeker could join us at regular intervals. Then Q’uo said that once these sacrifices had been made that each should abide in those choices, and then their spiritual light could be used as a beacon by which spiritual seekers might set their course. On March 28, 2009, Q’uo spoke of the spiritual light that is within each seeker:

However, just as even one candle can be seen for half a mile, so spiritual light can never be quenched, and that light shines through for all, even in the darkest night and in the thickest of illusions. And that light which cannot be quenched lies within each and every heart of each and every human that dwells upon Planet Earth.

Now switch with us from the point of view of the lighthouse to the point of view of those who seek to come to that place of light. Those who set sail upon a spiritual journey or pilgrimage sail in trackless blackness. The winds blow the thin cloud before the moon, and the spiritual sea is never quiet. Where is the North Star for those who sail so? To most no direction is found, no star may guide. For most there is only the faintest of directions which can be counted upon.

Yet when an entity seeking in this sea manages to come across the work of a positively oriented organization, such as yours, there is the aid or push from what we might call kind destiny. It is as though the sailor, having known surely that there is no direction to be found, settles itself down upon the dock and simply says, “All right. I know there is no outer answer, no visible direction. This is all of me, all that I am. I lay it before my Creator. Yield to me in your good time the star of hope. Show me a way.” This prayer does not have to be aloud or in words, but it must be heartfelt and single-minded.

To one who holds up this hope, the star of hope does appear, and sometimes that star has the label “L/L.” And destiny has kindly given a direction.

What do entities who find L/L, and come, find when they arrive? Perhaps now you may see that while outwardly they find simply the one known as Jim and the one known as Carla and a living room office, yet inwardly there is the certainty which comes from experiencing the tides and ways of destiny, that herein lies the infinite and the eternal, touching into manifestation.

We are aware that the ones known as Jim and Carla are amazed at the fire that is ignited when seekers find L/L. Yet they may put aside their amazement and likewise put aside that inner guilt from feeling that they are not worthy, insofar as all are unworthy—that is, prone to error. Certainly each contains much error. Insofar as entities perceiving them without error, we suggest the concern be removed, for as entities see the ones known as Jim and Carla they see not Jim and Carla, for these entities have gotten themselves out of the way, and it is the spirit within, the Creator present within, which is seen.

When entities create a place with a physical address which has as its only and heartfelt purpose the aiding of spiritually oriented seekers seeking the one Creator…

Now Q’uo spoke of the seeker who seeks the lighthouse within a dark and turbulent world, and heartfeltly asks the Creator to show it the way to such a positively-oriented organization, and it is as though a very kind destiny has been realized when it finds a lighthouse such as L/L Research. Then Q’uo said that when seekers find Jim and Carla, and L/L Research, they find not those of Jim and Carla who feel full of imperfections, but they find that Jim and Carla have gotten themselves out of the way so that the Creator within them is what is seen. On July 5, 1981, Hatonn explained how everyone has the Creator within them:

My sister, we would answer you by saying that to seek the love of the infinite Creator in each moment of your life is the greatest service and the greatest learning that can be accomplished upon your plane, for it is the lesson of this dimension to discover the love of the Creator within all that is experienced within the self, within the life, within the family, within the community, within each activity, each experience and there is, shall we say, an infinite amount of time to discover this love.


We are sorry for this pause. The one known as Carla went to sleep. We are those of Q’uo, and are with this instrument.

We are with this instrument. However, we are having some difficulty bringing this instrument to a working level of consciousness, and we were very close to the end of that which we had for you this day before asking for queries, therefore we would go ahead and transfer this contact to the one known as Jim in hopes that this entity is somewhat more alert than the one known as Carla, who is somewhat fatigued.

We would at this time transfer. We are those of Q’uo, and thank this instrument.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light through this instrument. Thus it is that for each entity which comes through the doors that are opened to L/L Research there is the fulfilling of the destiny for the one. And those who find this experience with those of L/L are those whose vibrational destinies, shall we say, resonate in harmony for the experience that is shared, each thus teacher to each, learning as the preparations have allowed, providing opportunities for further experience.

We who speak with those who gather feel the greatest of honor, for we know that the love and light of the one Creator which we are privileged to share is that which attracts all, and as each entity on the path of seeking moves from light to light, there is the growing union with all light everywhere. Thus does each seeker and each group provide light for the great unveiling of unity that all consciousness partakes in.

At this time we would ask if there might be any further query to which we may speak?

Carla: Q’uo, when people come here, quite frequently I end up listening and sharing and doing some teaching, and I wonder, is there a way that I could improve my listening ability or my openness to offering right counsel, because these people give an enormous, and really kind of a scary, amount of authority to people like me and Jim, and of course we really try to be really careful about what we say, but you can just be who you are and do the best you can, and I certainly feel there is room for improvement here. Do you have any suggestions or comments?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We would not wish to play the mechanic and tinker with various portions of this finely tuned engine, but would simply recommend that you do as you have done, that is, to live as you are and to take advantage of those opportunities to witness or share as they arise. There is no need to be concerned about what will be said or how it shall be spoken, for there is the flow of energy that is apparent to each, and as the life is lived more in accord with the flow of experiential energies that are all about, then those opportunities that are appropriate for sharing present themselves as surely as does the leaf to the light.

We would ask if there is any further query, my sister?

Carla: Not at this time, Q’uo, thank you.

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

R: I have a query, Q’uo, that concerns something that is on my mind when I come and join the circle, and that is that I wish to bring in as much love and light to the circle, with—and minimize the flaws, so to speak, that come from my personality. So, my question is if you can comment on how to improve on it, or if it is something that I need not worry about.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. Again, we would simply recommend that you do as you have done, for it has been well done, and that is to join in the circle of seeking with as happy a heart and as clear a mind as is possible, and we find that each within this circle is diligent in this regard. Thus, removing worry or concern for improvement is the only suggestion we can make at this time.

Is there a further query, my brother?

R: No, Q’uo, that is all I have. Thank you.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my brother. We would ask if there is a final query.

Carla: I do have one query, and it is just—I have been hearing more and more people getting AIDS, and as we pray for AIDS, and as we pray for aid for people who have AIDS, is there one image or one kind of healing that we could yearn for, because it’s just—it’s just a horrible problem. So many of the most kindly and beautiful souls that I know—earnest, seeking souls being just laid completely down to the earth and just killed by this.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We can only recommend that prayer for courage, for strength of faith, and for the purpose of the life well lived in the opening of the heart be offered, for all within your illusion shall find its end, and each will walk through the door of that you call death, and for each, the experience completed will be that which was the destiny of the incarnation, and each shall look upon that experience as that which is most cherished. Pray for the happy heart to come soon, for soon it shall come, indeed.

We would at this time thank each again for inviting our presence. We are full of joy at each such opportunity and give thanks to the One for the blessings of your queries and your desire to seek that truth which we seek, too.

At this time we shall take our leave of this instrument and this group, rejoicing with each step and with each word spoken, leaving each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I took Austin, Gary, and Trish to the airport so they could fly out to Seattle for the Coming Home to a New Earth Gathering. On the way home I stopped at Bachman’s Subaru dealership to go through their express lane and have the wiper replaced on my back window, but they didn’t have the one I needed in stock, so I will need to go back in two days when it will be in stock. Then I drove to The Home Depot to get a new sprinkler. When I got home I went around to pick up all of the small tree limbs that blew down in last night’s thunderstorm, and I filled two garbage cans with them.

This afternoon I got three 4 foot bamboo poles in put them in a triangle in the pot that Glorietta is growing more every day. She is an Arrowhead Vine that I pruned from Gloria when it was apparent that Gloria seemed to be dying. Then I tied the longest of the vines of Glorietta to one of the bamboo poles. By the way, last spring I gave up on being able to keep Gloria alive—after repotting her twice and removing the dead roots–and put her on a bench next to the driveway, under a Pawpaw tree, to let Mother Nature take over, and now Gloria has come back to life with almost two dozen leaves growing on her.

The Spirit Speaks Through You

I am of the principle of Love, and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine Love, the Christed consciousness.

There are times when those who wish to seek the Spirit of Love find themselves unable to perceive that which has been given but which is blocked by some error of human thought within the seeker. Yet this apparent lack of contact lived in a life of faith is not a troublesome matter, for the faithful seeker knows that the Spirit is always active in those who seek the Spirit. Thus by faith it is understood that Christ’s power does not come into the world here and not there, but is everywhere.

Moreover, how many, many times is someone blocked from Christ’s consciousness, yet given the grace to be that consciousness for another? So may seeker encourage seeker and spirit encourage spirit.

Let not your tongues be silent when you may speak words of sympathy and encouragement to others. For the Spirit speaks through you and heals the world.

May the peace of love be yours, 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 Q’uo quote comes from January 16, 1994:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light. It is our privilege at this time to ask if there may be any further queries for us from those within this group. Are there any further queries at this time?

Carla: I just—I have one question. Is there something within women that is fundamentally different than men, in that women seem to want so much more than men… comfort. Is that part of the archetypical nature of women, that they wish for reassurance more, comfort, reassurance, hugs, approval, that kind of thing, or is it training?

I am Q’uo, and I am aware of your query, my sister. This is a query which reaches deeply within the nature of the biological female within your third-density culture, and indeed beyond and before as well. We shall speak briefly and rely upon further queries for specificity.

The female of your peoples is that entity through which the force of life manifests itself, and knowing this both consciously and subconsciously the female nurtures that life force in every way possible, seeking as all mothers to guarantee the circumstances of the birth and rearing of that life force in manifestation. Thus, the female is more disposed to seek and preserve those situations which shall enhance its abilities to give the life force manifestation through its being as are all such [inaudible] or distortions within your illusion. This distortion also has those echoes and ramifications that attend to each individual female’s interpretation, both that which is conscious and that which is subconscious, so that the desire to nurture the life force may occasionally express itself as the desire for the more comfortable environment that will allow it to do that which is its destiny.

Carla wanted to know why women were different from men, and if it was part of the archetypical nature of women that they wish for more comfort, reassurance, hugs, approval, that kind of thing, or is it training? Q’uo replied by saying that this quality of women was a very deep part of their nature that began in the second density and continues in the higher densities as well, so they would speak briefly and ask for further questions. Then Q’uo said that females were aware both consciously and subconsciously that they were the source of how life manifests itself through them, so they sought to nurture the conditions of birth and growth into manifestation which causes them to seek a more comfortable environment in which to realize their destiny. On April 11, 2009, Q’uo spoke of how life manifests through the feminine principle:

The feminine principle, on the other hand, dwells in a state of rest, aware in a direct way of the energies of infinity and eternity. The moon sings through the blood of the woman. The cycle of the seasons echoes in her and to the biological feminine is given intimate awareness of the ocean of life as she conceives and carries new life within her.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you, Q’uo.

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

E: I have one related to the male/female difference, that is, given that females are inherently more nurturing than man, why is it that all major cultures on this planet are dominated by males?

I am Q’uo, and I am aware of your query, my brother. Again, we do not wish to oversimplify that upon which we speak but we may in brief reply that the male of your peoples is an entity that has its part to play in the preserving and the enhancing of the life force as it manifests in succeeding generations. Thus, as the male finds itself physically superior in most cases, it has the task in symbolic form, if not always in practical form, of finding those shelters and food sources that it shall provide for the family, that is the means by which the evolution of the species is accomplished.

As we mentioned previously, this protective aspect of the female nature to provide safe surroundings for its young has the distortion that can be personally expressed; so does the male have the personal and somewhat more profound distortion of taking that nature of providing physical sustenance and distorting it in a fashion which allows the preeminence of the male to be expressed. Thus, each function of male and female, and indeed of any entity, may be echoed in various portions of the environment that is created by the interaction of individuals and groups. Thus, the physical strength may be overemphasized to such a degree that the male claims physical dominance, or a dominance in any number of avenues. This quality is one which sets up the dynamic tension, shall we say, that works many times in retrograde nature, as the male does not always see how it may relate in a more civilized sense with those about it, both the male and the female.

The tendency to view the self as superior because of looking at one quality only is a common feature of many of your peoples. Thus, there are individuals who judge themselves well because of mental brilliance, because of physical strength, because of creations of one kind or another for which they give themselves credit. These are means by which distortions may be noted and may be set up for balancing, shall we say.

There have been other times upon your planetary influence when the male was not in all cultures in the position which it finds itself at this time. However, you may note that the cycles of relationship move and change and there is much of this change evident now within various cultures at this time, moving as always from the pioneer individuals, shall we say, to those about it, and spreading as the ripple effect to others as well.

E asked Q’uo: “Given that females are inherently more nurturing than men, why is it that all major cultures on this planet are dominated by males?” Q’uo began their response by saying that because the male is usually stronger than the female it takes upon itself the responsibility of providing the food and shelter for the female and their offspring so that the evolution of the species is accomplished. Q’uo went on to say that the greater physical strength of the male, over time, could be manifested as physical dominance in many different ways to the point that the male may fail to see how it may relate in a more compassionate way with both males and females. Q’uo also said that this feeling of being superior in some way was common to both males and females whether by intelligence, physical strength, art, writing, etc. Q’uo completed their thoughts by saying that males have not always been the dominant force in various cultures in the past, and that there was a change in various cultures at this time away from male dominance. On January 18, 2020, Q’uo spoke of the movement away from the traditional patriarchy and towards matriarchy:

The patriarchal system of governance and expression of power is that which has found its room to roam, shall we say, upon this particular planetary sphere for a great portion of what you would call time.

This type of expression of power, or energy, or intention, is that which is based upon the male principle of the reaching. This type of principle is that, when used in a cooperative fashion, and a sensitive fashion, is that which may be inspirational to those entities existing within the patriarchy. However, it is also a principle which is easily misused and may be used to the detriment of many within its sphere of influence, when the reaching becomes the grasping and the holding into position so that certain entities are not allowed a free expression of their own free will. This type of patriarchy, then, demands that there be compliance with a certain set of values and intentions that are often not universal in expression or desire by those within the higher realms of the patriarchy.

Thus, entities who wish to reform the patriarchal situation that may be predominantly of a male nature but also contain those of the female gender as well, are attempting at this time to enhance the type of expression that is more matriarchal, that which is feminine, that which awaits the reaching, that which does not have the temptation or the desire or the ability to be aggressive.

The awaiting the reaching is that which is comforting, that which is cooperative, that which is generative of the expression of love that accepts all that are within the realm of influence and nurtures each within that realm of influence.

Thus, the matriarchal type of expression of energies, is that which is seeing the entire picture, the, shall we say, grander view, the overview, and is patiently awaiting the discovery of each entity within the illusion, be the entity biological male or female, that the old ways of patriarchy have served their purpose and have, perhaps, been in dominance overlong, needing to be balanced by the nurturing nature of the feminine principle that awaits the reaching.

Is there a further query, my brother?

E: No, thank you. That was very helpful.

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

Carla: No, Q’uo. Thank you.

I am Q’uo, and we seem to have exhausted the queries at this time. We are hopeful that we have not exhausted your patience as well. We are most grateful for your invitation to join your circle of seeking, and we rejoice with you at every step upon the journey, for indeed we and many others walk with you, perhaps unseen but forming a goodly company nonetheless. We shall at this time take our leave of this instrument and this group, leaving each, as always, in the love and in the ineffable light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I changed out the sugar syrup in my three hummingbird feeders and my neighbor’s two feeders. Then I used the watering wand to water the flowers along the parking area in front of the house, the mound by the fishpond, the forsythia bushes on my north boundary, and the Solomon’s seal between the garage and the fire pit. Then I used the backpack blower to blow all of the leaves in the Moss Garden into the back yard.

This afternoon I mowed the grass in the front, side, and back yards. Then I set the sprinkler to water four areas in the back yard.

Bless Your Brokenness

I am of the energy of the full consciousness of divine Love, and I greet you in the blessed name of Jesus the Christ.

As you see yourself moving into the world of business and matters, objects and circumstances, you may well see yourself to be inadequate to or broken by all of these worldly things. See and bless this brokenness.

I say “bless” because to be broken is the blessing of the fruit that is to be eaten; of the loaf that is to be shared; of the limited, inadequate thing which may become not only enough but much more than enough.

Open your inner being to the consciousness of Love which the Spirit of Jesus the Christ offers. Bless and give thanks for your limitations and then open the heart to the action of the consciousness of infinite Love and you shall see how all has been created perfectly.

We leave you in the peace and the Love of Jesus the Christ. 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 Q’uo quote today comes from January 16, 1994:

The question this week has to do with how we accept change and the attitude that we can best utilize to meet change. Then we would also like some information on what it is exactly that changes. What is this sense of ourselves that changes and uses various tools like the mind, dreams, archetypical mind, and whatever to change?

(Carla channeling)

Greetings from the love and the light of the infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo, and we are privileged to bless you in the love and the light of the infinite One. We thank each for calling us to your meeting this afternoon and cannot adequately express our feelings of honor, for it is a privilege indeed to be able to blend our vibrations with your own and to share our humble opinions with you. As always, we remind each that we are fallible beings prone to error. We need to request that each choose those opinions which seem to resonate within the unique web of energies which are your evolving self and to lay the rest aside, for we would not be a stumbling block before any.

This concept of change is interesting. Imagine if you will the unity and infinity which characterize the creation and all within it. That which is various is infinitely various. That which is infinite is made of one thing. Where, then, is the change? Where the manyness? Each entity focuses within itself every energy within the unified creation. Within each unique and infinitely precious soul lies all that there is.

Thusly, the changes and chances of incarnation take place against a grand backdrop. You now see this backdrop as though it were the universe; you cannot see the stage beneath your feet for it seems to be Earth, nor can you see the self within each character that you play, nor can you see each character that you choose not to play, for you are of those within the train which spends its speed into gathering twilight, the cars filled with light, the travelers talking and drinking, and eating and sleeping, and gazing out the windows at the passing scenery.

How much of this landscape that you see have you made yours? This image is intended to funnel your conceptual mind into a configuration within which you may see that the incarnated experience which to you seems greatly various and changeable is in a more light-filled illusion—which is your metaphysical counterpart at this space/time—straight as an arrow. The change you perceive is just that: perception of change, not change. You are on the incarnational train. It is not local. It does not stop until you disembark. The concept of destiny is unknown to most who chase under its heavy hand. Yet, we say to you that this unknown destiny is your greatest ally. This train which shall keep you on track regardless of what scenery you view will ride through its destination well in mind, all the curves, and mountains, valleys and great chasms that seem to toss and fling you through life are the scenery of your spirit’s learning, the visual aids of the great college which is your incarnation.

To focus upon change is skillful for the one who works to accelerate the rate of spiritual evolution, but we greatly encourage each to couch this focus upon change within the larger picture in which you may see that there is a strong and substantial reason to trust and have perfect faith in destiny.

You have put yourself on this train. This trip is planned by you. You did not ask yourself to be happy or sad, to do well or to do poorly, not at all. You asked yourself to experience this exact incarnation. This is your responsibility, to experience as fully as possible each moment—to be hungry for food, that food being all that you can pay your attention to.

Therefore, the first thing we would say about change and the entity changing is, remember that the changes are apparent as great and sweeping [inaudible] changes in direction, but in a truer sense you are simply moving from car to car on that train of destiny. You are beyond all changes secure, safe, and held with the greatest tenderness by the Love of the infinite One. When all overwhelms you it is well to remember that you need do nothing but rest in those arms. As change occurs the disoriented and torn consciousness, which is often experienced can be most unsettling, yet there is always beyond the unsettling emotions the comfort which you may claim, that comfort of the one who loves, the one whose love is greatly part of you. Love created you and Love loves you.

This resting and abiding certainty can heal the most tattered spirit, but the gaze must be shifted away from the torn and bleeding circumstances, relationship, or whatever is perceived as changing and making vulnerable and afraid that self which is your conscious self. To attempt to get a true grounding from the other passengers, shall we say, is not to invoke the higher or more overarching energies. Rather, to turn to the infinite Creator for solace and comfort is the effective action, for consider that each entity who you interact with is also on that train which his destiny has chosen.

The question this week has to do with how we accept change and the attitude that we can best utilize to meet change. What is this sense of ourselves that changes and uses various tools like the mind, dreams, archetypical mind, and whatever to change? Q’uo began by saying that the infinite creation is one thing that is contained within each unique soul, and within this third-density illusion we play many characters which we perceive as changing as time goes on. Then Q’uo said that our perception of change is simply a perception of change, and not change [in the larger picture since we are always the Creator], and our incarnations are like a train that takes us through a great variety of scenery that becomes the destiny of our spiritual journey which we have planned. Q’uo went on to say that we should have faith that our incarnation is occurring as it should in each moment as we move from car to car on the train of the experience of our destiny, and when our experiences of change become overwhelming that we should rest in the loving arms of the Infinite One that created us and each person that we interact with. On April 21, 1994, Q’uo spoke of our destiny as frequently difficult as we go through times of change:

In the process of transformation there is almost always a great deal of sorrow and feelings of loss, for when change is going to occur naturally it simply takes one as destiny will and almost never is it a completely smooth road from that one way which was to that other way which has yet to be worked out. And yet we encourage you to have the faith to praise that which is past and to open the heart to that which is, was, and shall be.

The keeping of silence, the keeping of the listening ear as part of the daily round of activity is always, we feel, an excellent practice, for in the silence, in the listening lies the key that unlocks the door of your own wisdom, that which is within the deep mind, that whose voice is silence, and which can only be heard by the open and listening heart. If you can trust destiny enough to release the attempts to control it, the natural waves of energy moving out from the center of that kindly destiny which is each seeker’s will gradually take that seeker upon the path and in the direction which is deeply desired.

We do not need to tell you how difficult a practice it is to maintain the silent and listening receptivity to destiny in a world in which intangibles and invisible things are often given no worth or value at all. Yet, this practice is most productive of peace of mind and is very efficient in its own way at keeping the seeker upon the path chosen before the incarnative experience.

Let us now gaze at who it is that changes, and who it is that records or witnesses change. Imagine the self standing in the desert at night. The entity you are imagining reaches one hand to the starry sky. Moving finally from this [inaudible] attitude this figure begins to dance, and as this figure dances and spins, the stars above begin to whirl [inaudible] until all of creation is drawn star by star into the self. This figure, then, has all within, all of star, all of space, all of emotion, all of life, all within. This is the entity which witnesses change. You see the manifestation of yourself, it seems to have dimension, to be the daughter of time and space, or the son of time and space.

We say to you that in actuality all that you have experienced as rock, as tree, as human, as what you call angel, as sun, as Creator, all of these things are the witness that flings the hand to beckon the stars. All that moves, moves and has being in an instant, and within this instant the millions and millions of years of a whole creation beginning, [inaudible], and ending has taken place. You now experience the instant before the Creator coalesces once again. Time is an illusion, space is an illusion. The witness knows at some level the depth of this illusion, and through all change it keeps its feet steadily upon the desert floor. There is that within you which has such power that you could not image or believe this selfhood to be yours.

You ask how to meet change? We say to you the second thing that is you do not have to meet change. You have only to remember who you are. You are the witness; pay attention. Remember the desert floor and the out-flung hand, remember the stars spinning into your consciousness and meet change with love, for you have nothing to fear. You commanded this change.

The third and final thing we would say about change is most skillfully taught by the one known as Jesus. This teacher said to worry not about what to eat or what to wear or what things to say, for food and clothing and words will all be supplied as the destiny kindly arranges one day at the time, as this instrument is fond of saying. Yesterday’s change is moving away behind you, tomorrow’s change is not imagined. You need only focus upon the present moment as you perceive it.

The impulse of the manifestation of yourself which is human has the instinct to grasp and hold those things which are perceived as being needed. There is the stretching and the reaching for enough to withstand what might occur. Yet change does not happen well to entities which are holding on to anything. What if in this instant the gravity you experience was reversed. Would you do a somersault or would you fall all over yourselves while explaining that this was impossible. How much of change is painful because it is resisted? There is in the makeup which you have supplied yourselves with a great tool; as always, we mention this tool, that being meditation. The levels upon which are lived the life are several. You see, to unite the spirit, the mind, and the body to promote that unity which appears as health, that health may be greatly aided by the frequent remembrance of the ground of being during meditation, even if it is only for a second. The various pieces of self are knitted up in that opening to the presence within that loved you before you ever hoped to love it. How precious each of you is.

It is as though within the meditation, regardless of how scattered it seems, there is a pure and distilled waterfall of light which irrigates and illumines cell by cell the body, mind and spirit. It is like being rinsed and polished to relax into that presence which is holy. And do not simply confine the self to one kind or form of meditation, for various experiences request various kinds of coherent illumination or meditation. Sometimes you may wish to contemplate a certain eye-catching thought or question, sometimes the meditation may be very active, the sacred dance, the sacred song. Sometime the true need is for the self to rail and complain bitterly to the infinite Creator, to say, “This does not seem to be a lesson in love at all. This hurts, this is painful, and I don’t like it.” Complaining is allowed, my children, complaining is encouraged. Too much is made of the wonderfulness of the infinite Creator and not enough said about the intimate love of this Love itself that engages you in conversation and responds caringly and intricately to the way you speak your experience and tell your story to it.

We encourage each, especially in times of dislocating change, to tell your story either mentally or out loud to the infinite One. The infinite One is never happier than when being addressed, and you, in addressing the infinite One, receive reflections you cannot imagine, reflections of the highest of truth and beauty. Each of you is waiting to flower and bloom from moment to moment. To most ably assist the self in blooming through change we encourage each to remember who you truly are. Remember the true magnitude of your infinite self. Remember the impossibility of ever judging a circumstance or combination of feelings in any accurate way, and shed the responsibility for that. You are responsible only as you will yourself to pay attention to that which is before the eyes and then to address that situation, curious to find the most love within the self and the most appropriate way to share that love—first with the infinite One and then with the self and others, looking in times of change for ways to love and ways to be love, and accepting all with a brave heart.

[Inaudible] in the deeper and deepening consciousness of the witness self that watches all change yet remains the self within the rock, the self within the Creator and all points between. Then may you be tossed about by experience only a little, only to the extent that you accept with a high and courageous heart. We feel you cry out in this change’s occurrence. We feel the pain within the voices that ask “Why?” and we do not wish to be cold-hearted. Yet, it is the perception of the animal within that change is dangerous, and that mind which is the mind of the second-density animal which carries your consciousness about in this lifetime resists and demands a cessation of change, for it does not have faith, is not self-conscious. Its instinct rules, and its intellect rationalizes instinct. Yet, you are not this life-form but another. You are consciousness, and you have accepted partnership with this entity which walks and talks and moves about.

It is not wise to be driven by this animal or its very capable mind. Retain the awareness of that consciousness that does not resist destiny, and school yourself as far as possible to create the response to stimulus which is positive and says, “Yes, I will accept this change and will be sustained in it by the presence of love.” Call upon your own faith, feel strongly the hope which abides, and attempt to remember that all those changes have to do with lessons about loving. You are experiencing manyness; you seek infinity. You are experiencing concern and questioning doubt and worry. Bring in, too, remembrance, love. All things will pass away except love. You are love, you just don’t know it yet. Give yourself and the illusion time.

Now Q’uo said that as we witness change within us, we have all that there is within us: all of the stars, all of space, all of emotion, and all of life, and we become the sons and daughters of time and space, but then we must realize that we are much more than that because we have gone through the entire octave of densities in an instant where there is no time or space. Then Q’uo said that we will experience the instant before the Creator coalesces, and we have nothing to fear so that we can meet change with love as we have created this change. Q’uo went on to say that we need not be concerned about the past or the future, but we should focus only on the present moment without any resistance to the change that we are experiencing. Then in meditation we should seek the uniting of our mind, body, and spirit, and that we should use various forms of meditation to do this such as contemplation upon a thought, dancing, singing, complaining to the Creator about the difficulty of our lives as the Creator will respond to this communication with the reflections of the greatest truth and beauty that we can ever imagine. Q’uo said that this was the greatest way to feel love for the infinite One, and then for ourselves, and for others, and during times of change to be loving and accepting of change. Q’uo completed their reply by saying that we should call upon our faith and remember that all of our life changes are about learning to love, and that we should deal with doubt and worry by remembering that all things will pass away except love, and that we are love. So, we should give ourselves and the illusion of third density time to move through changes. On February 11, 1982, Laitos described how learning to love and forgive ourselves and others can be aided by meditation:

The incarnation offers the entity the opportunity to accept, to forgive, to love all beings, all experiences, all events, including the self. This learning of acceptance and loving is that learning which shall allow the graduation, shall we say, into the next lesson’s series or density. The entity throughout a lifetime, therefore, has the opportunity of learning to love that which is unlovable, learning to accept that which is unacceptable, learning to forgive that which is unforgivable.

This process of loving, accepting, forgiving of all might be enhanced in the meditations upon those circumstances, situations, entities, or characteristics of the self which are deemed by the self to be unacceptable, unforgivable, unlovable. Such characteristics occurring within the daily round of activities might be beneficially noted within the mind and used as a catalyst for the learning to love, accept and forgive in the meditative state.

We would at this time leave this instrument and transfer to the entity known as Jim. We thank this instrument and leave it in love and in light. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I set the sprinkler in three locations in the back yard while I was editing my Camelot Journal entries for the next couple of days. After I was through with the editing, I used my trimmer to weed the back yard and side yard. At 10:15 I took Benny to the vet to see what I can do to help her eat as she has eaten very little in the last couple of days, and the meds for her heart failure and fluid in her kidneys is in her food. They gave me a medicine to rub into one of her ears once a day, but I have no idea how I will be able to do that as she is feral, and I need to wear thick gloves to handle her.

This afternoon I finished weeding the front yard with my trimmer and went over to my neighbor’s house across the street to weed her flower garden with a hoe.

The Bird That Sings

I am of the principle of divine love and joy.

I greet you in the full consciousness of Christ.

I greet you in joy. Think you that Jesus did not have joy? It is not so. No matter what the suffering of the human condition, there is joy in every moment to be found by opening the inward eye to the beauties, the possibilities, and the chances of the creation.

It may perhaps be that there are matters which cause the utmost discouragement. Yet always there is the bird that sings, the tassel upon the corn that waves in the wind, and the blue, ethereal sky flocked with clouds. Look up this day and find the joy within the creation about you.

Look within and feel the kindly hand of the Spirit, for the principle of Love needs only to be requested to appear in each seeking heart.

We leave you in peace, love and joy, 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 Q’uo quote comes from January 2, 1994:

The question today is from N. The first part is about the cycles. Since “as above, so below,” only by understanding the universe, cosmos, celestial bodies, and finding correlations with the activities of the mind, the human body, cells, tissues and molecules, atoms and subatomic particles, down to the etheric body, can we comprehend the whole. Could you comment on the correlation between cycles and the relationship to the human body?

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We feel pleasure that we have been called to this session of working in order to share our thoughts with you. Thank you for this honor. Please, as always, take what is meaningful from our opinions, discarding the rest.

The physical makeup of your visible universe is most impressive, the systems, seeming rigidly hierarchical until there is a closer look, at which time anomalies begin to mount. The part of the crystallized creation which is withheld is great. This withholding is not in order that visibility be restricted, rather the withholding is due to the lack of sufficient sight, or opportunity for sight. In other words, neither the third density physical vehicles nor the consciousness inhabiting these physical vehicles is at present equipped with receptors capable of assimilating the amount of data which exists.

We say this because the attempt to match perceived cyclical hierarchies is made non-useful by this fact. It is indeed so that that which exists, as you say, above, is indeed reflected in that which is, as you have said, below. However, that which is above is other than can be conjured or mentally figured out. That energy which created all that there is may be seen to be the center of all that there is. This field of Love is of a nature which is reproduced and is the stuff of all levels of vibration which stem therefrom.

This nature is an essence or a fullness of field. The energy is saturated, that is, there is fullness of Love. You seek in understanding cycles to better understand healing. However, it is an understanding, shall we say, of fields and of the amount of saturation or fullness of Love in the fields, in field strength, shall we say, that aids in the efficacy of healing. That is, the more saturated the awareness of Love is the more fullness of health there is.

To work on the influences of heavenly objects, as you call these, is instead to do fairly subtle work in the area of the archetypical mind. The influences upon these archetypes from celestial objects varies according to the native ground or earth of a particular entity and the study of these correspondences yields a wealth of detailed information in each individual which undertakes such study.

This touches only tangentially upon healing information in that it is so that in working with the archetypes and their relationships there is much opportunity for the skilled student to take fire from a newly perceived gracefulness of relationship that clarifies in some way the student’s thinking or, as you so often say, understanding.

N began with the “as above so below” assumption of cycles from celestial bodies down to subatomic particles and asked “Could you comment on the correlation between cycles and the relationship to the human body? Q’uo began their reply by saying that the entirety of the physical universe is beyond any third density consciousness to comprehend. Then Q’uo said that it was basically true that “as above, so below” because the nature of Love that created all that there is exists in every portion of the creation. Q’uo continued by saying that as more awareness of Love is found in the various fields of energy there is more fullness of health. Q’uo also said that working with the influence of the celestial bodies could produce a wealth of information for those who study the archetypical mind and allow the student to study the relationships within the archetypical mind that can increase their understanding.  In 10.14, Ra said that love exists in every portion of the creation:

The moment contains love. That is the lesson/goal of this illusion or density. The exercise is to consciously seek that love in awareness and understanding distortions. The first attempt is the cornerstone. Upon this choosing rests the remainder of the life-experience of an entity. The second seeking of love within the moment begins the addition. The third seeking powers the second, the fourth powering or doubling the third. As with the previous type of empowerment, there will be some loss of power due to flaws within the seeking in the distortion of insincerity. However, the conscious statement of self to self of the desire to seek love is so central an act of will that, as before, the loss of power due to this friction is inconsequential.

May we ask if there is a further query?

Jim: A minor harvest cycle is related to the solar year which is the amount of time it takes our sun to go around the zodiac, about 25,000 years. The master cycle is said to be 75,000 years. Is there a star around which our sun or solar system moves that is the center of this 75,000 year cycle and, if so, can you tell us is it Alcyone or some other star?

We are those of Q’uo. While it is so that the numbers 25,000 and the turning of sun about solar system—we correct this instrument—Earth around solar system are similar, there is not the importance placed upon the connection between these two similar numbers. The timing, shall we say, of cycles of spiritual living or advancement are as they are because of quite sensitive factors involving the energies of the group of entities moving through third density. In other words, since your Earth sphere has certain populations of entities from various planetary influences the timing of these cycles of spiritual evolution is set in such and such a mold. As the group populations’ biases collectively are altered through what you know as time the timing of the cycles also evolves.

The setting of these cycles is ever liquid and is regulated quite, quite precisely according to every single entity and thought of each entity. This energetic whole has a nascent life which expresses its times of blooming and learning in such and such a way while stars wheel above in the heavens according to your physical sight, the constellations of thought and intention infinitesimally added until a towering largeness and fullness of information has been assimilated. This living entity expresses as a field and this entity’s expressions create the exact timing of the cycles of learning.

The cycles of learning have only tangentially, again, to do with the concerns of healing which we believe we understand these questions to be directed to. It is difficult to express how this perfectly logical seeming set of correspondences actually has an effect because the archetypical mind is most deep and for that reason most difficult to penetrate. We are happy to work upon the metaphysical implications of cycles concerning the archetypical mind, however, it is our feeling that this is not germane to a study of healing except as a rather advanced and subtle portion of healing which has to do with abstract or mental body healing at certain levels. We would suggest working from other assumptions than the assumption that cycles of spiritual learning are correlated with the cycles concerning healing.

Now the question was: “Is there a star around which our sun or solar system moves that is the center of this 75,000-year cycle and, if so, can you tell us if it is Alcyone or some other star? Q’uo began by saying that the 25,000- and 75,000-year cycles were not necessarily connected, and that the cycles’ time period is connected to the sources of the population of Earth, and as the biases of the collective population changes the cycles also change so that the timing of the cycles varies according to the living entities learning as a social memory complex. Then Q’uo said that these cycles have little to do with healing and are related more to the deep nature of the archetypical mind, but the archetypical mind is difficult to penetrate. On October 6, 2018, Q’uo spoke of how the biases of the collective population of Earth has evolved into a higher consciousness as has Mother Earth as well:

Your planetary sphere has, itself, moved through the same densities of this illusion of creation, as have each of you, beginning within the first density; moving then from that which is simple awareness of earth, wind, fire, and water, moving into the second density, where there is a consciousness that expresses itself as it moves towards the light, that being the second-density beings of the plants and the animals who are able to experience growth and movement in the beginning of self-conscious awareness; which is that quality which allows each second-density being to move within the third-density realm, to become that which is the completed entity—the mind, the body, and the spirit, being added in such a fashion to create a human being, as you might call them.

Your Mother Earth has been central in this process of growth through the first three densities, and shall continue to be central in this movement into the fourth density of love and understanding. Thus, the process of experiencing that which is known as the consciousness of self is that which is aided by the planet itself, for the planet has, within it, the conscious awareness of each entity that has inhabited its own beingness.

The planetary entity which you call your Gaia, or your Mother Earth, has, throughout limitless time, experienced its own consciousness and expressed it as the quality that you may see as pure awareness—the awareness of the One Creator that exists in all things at all times. This awareness within your Mother Earth has gone through the same stages of growth as has each entity within your third-density illusion, and as each entity which moves into the fourth density. The qualities of conscious awareness have an expanded meaning within your Mother Earth, for her awareness is not just the awareness of her own beingness and her own body that may be seen quite simply as a movement of matter within time and space, but is also an awareness of each form of life upon its surface, and within its beingness, as life exists at all levels of your Mother Earth.

Thus, the interaction that she undertakes with you in conscious expansion of awareness is that which is a process of harmonizing its beingness with the upward spiraling line of light that moves each entity’s awareness through each level of consciousness, and each density of awareness. Thus, your Mother Earth moves with each of its total population of human beings and all beings of any nature, and indeed, within all things, be they rock, animal, or spiritual qualities of devotion, of seeking, of inspiration, of service to others and service to self.

Thus, your Mother Earth has within her living bank of memory the experiences of all life forms that live upon her and within her, and she gives to each what you may call a very basic kind of inspiration that inspires at the cellular level, as well as all higher levels within each conscious being, and within all lower conscious and unconscious beings and substances. Thus, your Mother Earth moves in concert with its population, being one with each at a very basic level. Thus, all move together within this illusion to the next illusion of the fourth density of love and understanding.

Is there a further query?

Jim: He also mentions a 206,000 year cycle and he would like to know if there is any relationship between this 206,000 year cycle and Arcturus or Aldebaran and if there is a metaphysical significance to this cycle.

We are those of Q’uo. We do not find the comparisons listed to be useful.

Is there a further query?

Jim: Yes. He would also like to know if there is any significance in a 26-million-year cycle and if it has any relationship to a specific star or location.

We are those of Q’uo. And again we do not find a significance to the 26 million year cycle. Perhaps we could suggest that the center of the universe is the center of each entity’s heart. The open heart of the great Self which each self is, is that center which is a unity. All of the portions of the Creator, shall we say rather misleadingly, seem to themselves to be in time and space each unique, each separate and each apart. Yet, in truth, the center of the constellations is the open heart. All measurement, all numbering, all ways of detailing and patterning the observed creation fall to dust before the open heart. Love is of a certain nature. The fullness, breadth, depth and height of the nature of love is both revealed and concealed by its visibility and ready accessibility for each self contains this center without distortion within the open heart.

It is both blessing and curse that those who seek so longingly and yearn so profoundly for scientific information to aid in being of service must have their hopes thwarted by the illusive and ever receding face of spiritual knowledge, for this knowledge is not that which has to do with the kind of measuring which is used to calculate the hierarchies of the observable, physical universe, but Love moves, and its traces dwell within all things. The keys to healing echo the ways or nature of Love itself.

We find that to speak further at this juncture is to infringe upon the free development of the awareness which would ask further queries upon this healing subject and consequently we feel that to speak further at this working is not appropriate. We thank this instrument for bearing with us while we attempted to use some concepts which stretched the instrument’s ability to understand, if we may again use this term. We also thank the questioner and encourage study and further queries on this interesting subject. Our hearts are full of a love and desire to be of service, as always, and we are most thankful for the energy and desire and longing to be of service that this group expresses with these queries. It is truly a privilege to be able to blend our energies with your own and we cannot thank you enough.

N would also wanted to know if there is any significance in a 26-million-year cycle and if it has any relationship to a specific star or location. Q’uo said that they did not see any significance in this cycle and suggested that the center of the universe was in each open heart that reflected the Creator’s Love in a seemingly separate way, but which revealed the fullness of this Love and contains it without distortion.  Q’uo completed their response by saying that it was both a blessing and a curse that the nature of spiritual knowledge was ever receding into a mystery that cannot be measured by scientific means, and I think that the blessing is that if the scientific mind could measure and understand the mystery of the universe, the universe would be too simple to be of the highest spiritual value in making our seeking of truth an infinite journey. In 28.1, Ra spoke of the mystery of creation:

Questioner: The concept that I have right now of the process, using both what you have told me and some of Dewey Larson’s material having to do with the physics of the process, I have the concept that intelligent infinity expands outward from all locations everywhere. It expands outward in every direction uniformly like the surface of a balloon or a bubble expanding outward from every point everywhere. It expands outward at what’s called unit velocity or the velocity of light. This is Larson’s idea of the progression of what he calls space/time. Is this concept correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This concept is incorrect as is any concept of the one intelligent infinity. This concept is correct in the context of one particular Logos, or Love, or focus of this Creator which has chosen Its, shall we say, natural laws and ways of expressing them mathematically and otherwise.

The one undifferentiated intelligent infinity, unpolarized, full and whole, is the macrocosm of the mystery-clad being. We are messengers of the Law of One. Unity, at this approximation of understanding, cannot be specified by any physics but only be activated or potentiated intelligent infinity due to the catalyst of free will. This may be difficult to accept. However, the understandings we have to share begin and end in mystery.

Is there any other query at this time?

Jim: Not from me, Q’uo. That was very good. I’m sure he appreciates that a good deal. Thank you.

We are those of Q’uo, and we greatly appreciate your kind words. May we close by simply spending a few moments stating the wonder, the marvelous wonder of hope when hope is not logical. The wonder, the miraculous wonder of faith, when faith is not logical. May we encourage each to live in hope and in faith, forgetting not one iota of the darkness perceived but knowing that no darkness eradicates light. Live, then, in light, for inwardly you may always be standing beneath the bright sun.

As your spirit basks in its intelligent warmth the body is most positively affected. So may the time of cold and darkness be for you lighted within by the sun of hope and faith. We leave you rejoicing in this faith, in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator.

We are known to you as those of the principle Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning Anna and I synchronized our computers in Nashville and Louisville and listened to Carla channel Ra in Session #35. As it always is, being able to see and hear the words at the same time is an inspiring experience. In this session Ra said that Adolf Hitler was unable to serve the Creator he was unable to make the negative harvest because of insanity setting in during the last part of his life, and we couldn’t figure out how anything anyone would do would not help the Creator to know Itself better. After our session was complete, I went upstairs to do my usual cleaning of Benny’s apartment and check on her to see how she was doing. I discovered that she is still not eating any food which has her medications in it for heart failure and kidney problems. She is also still hiding, so I think I will call the vet tomorrow and change my appointment to bring Benny in from Tuesday to Monday. Then I went outside and cleaned the filters for the fountain on the fishpond so the fountain would not pulse and would be higher in its arc.

This afternoon I ran a couple of errands with my first stop at Paul’s Fruit Market where I bought some food for myself. My second stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some Pepsi-Zero. When I got back home I weeded the Ruins Mound and the flower garden along the parking area in the front yard.

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

June 23

The Fire Of Love

Greetings from the spirit of Christ to the world. Love, peace, and blessings be with you.

The fire of unconditional Love is a rampaging and ruthless force which is infinitely creative. Fire also burns, and those who are led by the Spirit are often led to shed and allow to fall into disrepair traits and sensibilities which function well in the world of sense but not in the world where Love holds sway.

It cannot be escaped, the fire of Love, yet by placing yourself trustfully within that fire you may find your soul taught and tempered by its creative blaze. Much of loss is experienced by those whose path is that of Christ. May you who seek learn to see that the power of Love is one which changes situations. There is loss involved. Place your mind trustfully in the faith that those things which fall away will be replaced by far more lovely gifts.

We leave you in the peace of the Love of Jesus the Christ, 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 Q’uo quote comes from December 19, 1993:

Group question: [Inaudible] … [name] concerning a dream he had, which he felt was an extremely enlightening dream. We will ask the questions in parts. The first one is: “Who are those who played the parts of my spirit mother and fathers?”

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are privileged to attend your session of working at this time and gratefully thank this group for calling us to share our opinions with you. It is our privilege, and we are most heartily pleased and blessed by the company, asking only that our opinions be accepted as just that. So, we ask each to consider what we offer, rejecting those things which do not immediately seem to aid in your particular spiritual journey, and if there remain any which do aid you, then we are most delighted.

We speak this day concerning the interpretation of a dream. Such is often the platform upon which information necessary to a spiritual seeker is offered, the dream state being marvelously outfitted and equipped to handle complex and shifting values and concerns which are being considered by the seeker on many levels, some conscious and most subconscious. This dream state, then, is marvelously wrought for maximal lading or layering of information. To one who is not yet working with the dream state, dreams may seem ephemeral, nonsensical, and useless. However, to the seeker who spends the care and attention to prepare for remembering and considering dreams this resource of the mind is a stout friend and a wise teacher to the conscious self, expressing in rich detail the tapestry of deep energies which move through the self within the incarnation.

The denizens of dreams have various identities when gazed at from various points of advantage. In a very real sense, and perhaps one of the most important, all figures within a dream are the self. This seems confusing at first glance, for if all figures in a dream are the self, then where is the dynamic which expresses thought and carries instruction? Yet the self is a large entity, an entity of a level or order of complexity which is difficult to express. Within each self there exist the pre-traces or foreshadowings of all potential possible states of mind, all feelings and emotions, indeed, all situations.

In a dream in which all entities are the self, then, the interpreter of the dream is looking at the characters of the dream with the hope of penetrating the symbol, or figure, or motif which the figure represents. In this regard, it is helpful to have some familiarity with the archetypical mind in one of those disciplines, such as the tarot, which attempt with some degree of success to capture the complex and many-layered values and colors of this tapestry of the self.

When one gazes at a mother, within the dream, looking for the archetypical match for this particular entity one may perhaps find some degree of success holding each archetype in mind and allowing the dream figure to be matched to it. The figure of mother contains, shall we say, the essence or heart of the dynamic called female. Those incarnate—we correct this instrument—incarnated in physical vehicles which are female contain the world within them, for to their wombs and through their wombs all must come who come into manifestation.

The female is the doorway through which all life essences stream. Within the heart of the father, then, is that which acknowledges the high position or ruling standard of the feminine. Before that door, that gateway, all men kneel, all give homage. Toward the female, then, is felt an irresistible love, often experienced as a darker or more convoluted love bearing in its folds the pain of that within the male which is not alive as is the female.

Thus, we encourage the one known as [name] in its consideration of the various female archetypes to illuminate this search for self and further to illuminate that within the self which now stops searching.

[Pause of thirty seconds.]

The three images of father—that which is rough, that which is strong, that which is wily—are not mutually exclusive images, yet what, archetypically speaking, within the male is rough, is wily? What depths do these words suggest? What divisions within the self do the unification of these three characteristics foreshadow? We suggest consideration of which is rough, that which is strong, that which is wily, moving always back from the detail to the essence, from complexity of detail towards unity of wedded understanding.

To the student which has achieved comes the clear dream which points both to the completion of one season of the self and to the moment of beginning, the next season of the self. In what way, then, does the incarnation, as its events lie in the present moment, provide resonances with this dream of mother and of fathers? These considerations may well produce further queries.

One of the attendees at this channeling session had questions about a dream that he had, and the first one was: “Who are those who played the parts of my spirit mother and fathers?” Q’uo began their reply by saying that dreams are a very effective way for the subconscious mind to reveal the many layers of meaning that a seeker may experience on its spiritual journey. Then Q’uo said that all of the characters in the dream are some portion of the self which is much larger in the spiritual sense than it is as the incarnated self, so it is necessary to become aware of the archetypical mind in order to grasp the nature of this many-layered self. Q’uo continued by saying that the dream images should be compared to various of the Major Arcana of the tarot where the mother could be seen as the female through which all life essences stream forth and for which great love is felt. Then Q’uo said that the father could be seen as that which is rough, that which is strong, and that which is wily, and which would correspond to the complexity of detail towards unity blended with understanding, and then Q’uo asked: “In what way, then, does the incarnation, as its events lie in the present moment, provide resonances with this dream of mother and of fathers?” In 95.18, Ra gave us information as to the interpretation of dreams:

Questioner: Thank you. A question has been asked which I’ll ask at this time. In processing the catalyst of dreams is there a universal language of the unconscious mind which may be used to interpret the meaning of dreams? Or does each entity have a unique language of its unconscious mind which it may use to interpret the meaning of dreams?

I am Ra. There is what might be called a partial vocabulary of the dreams due to the common heritage of all mind/body/spirit complexes. Due to each entity’s unique incarnational experiences there is an overlay which grows to be a larger and larger proportion of the dream vocabulary as the entity gains experience.

May we answer further at this time?

Jim: The second part of the question is: “What of an helpful or clarifying nature could be said regarding my spirit mother’s answer to my question about the constancy of my experience of being?”

Carla: Could you read that again?


(Carla channeling)

Q’uo: The metamorphosis that occurs in some life forms is far more striking than transformation within the third-density consciousness. When the tadpole becomes a frog, there has been quite an obvious change. When the pupa becomes a butterfly, there is an obvious change, but when a seeker has unwittingly fulfilled an archetypical task, the transformation is not obvious or even visible, necessarily.

Further, this transformation takes place at two very different levels of being. In one level, the subconscious level, time/space holds sway and there is no veil, so that clarity of color and detail is seen. However, the portion of the personhood, shall we say, which is conscious is like that of the iceberg. The conscious self is often tempted to think of itself as it sees itself in the mirror as the whole self. However, most of that which makes a seeker that particular and unique seeker lies forever hidden, and as an entity continues to do work in consciousness, great magnitudes of change are seen below the threshold of consciousness and rainbows of colors detail this marvelous melodrama of evolving selfhood, while above the threshold of consciousness the changes are muted and the desire to see these changes, be it ever so keen, must make itself comfortable working largely with the palest and dimmest of hues compared to the richness of color in the time/space portions of consciousness which lie below the veil.

Thusly, it is well that there be in a seeker attempting to learn new ways the willingness to accept upon—we correct this instrument—on faith alone that the work done faithfully and persistently is indeed creating new selfhood below the veil of forgetting, even though that which appears within the conscious experience may not at all times have the brilliance and clarity which is instinctively felt as the work of seeking revolves and moves the seeker in its orbit of evolution.

It may be seen, then, that on one level a state once experienced becomes the basic state and further evolution holds this value as its ground value. On the conscious level, however, the value which is stable subconsciously seems to be anything but stable as the conscious entity working within this shadowed valley of existence which is your normal waking consciousness must work to understand what it can amid the ever changing emotional mind-sets which bias most entities’ web of perceptions according to those defenses and adjustments which have fed into the increasingly eccentric and individualistic web of characteristics which is the evolving personality of the conscious self.

Thusly, there is always change, but the fruits of these changes, the completion motifs of cycles within incarnation, though steady and stable within the deep self, will not seem stable at all within the conscious life. How to evaluate oneself with regard to this holding of the steady state? We encourage any seeker with this kind of query simply to lay it aside, for the least among your peoples can judge the self but the greatest among you cannot judge wisely. Therefore, we encourage the lack of the taking of the spiritual temperature and also the releasing of the opinion concerning which state it would be best to be in.

Certainly one wishes to always run the straight race with a pure and full-hearted effort. Yet we suggest that the running of this race is in itself that satisfaction which truly endures. The grasping or holding on to that which has occurred, we suggest, is not necessary, for such clear dreamings generally signal the ending or completion of one cycle of learning and the momentary or new entry into the next cycle which shall be the next lesson of love.

The entity which began the cycle, now ended, is no longer that which calls itself [name] and now that this cycle begins, to turn back and reach for these experiences felt within the dream queried about is just a holding on to that which is rather a signal, a fairly complex signal, which suggests without specific delineation the nature of what may be called the initiation which has been gone through.

Then the attendee asked: “What of an helpful or clarifying nature could be said regarding my spirit mother’s answer to my question about the constancy of my experience of being?” Q’uo began by saying that the transformational experience that the dream expresses takes place in the time/space portion of the subconscious mind where it is perceived in great color and detail whereas the conscious mind only perceives fragments of the transformation, so the seeker must rely on faith that the work it has done in its consciousness is reflected by the dream. Q’uo went on to say that these changes in consciousness are steady with the subconscious mind, but they will be experienced as not at all steady by the conscious life, so Q’uo suggested that the seeker not worry about these changes and simply continue its spiritual journey with the basic realization that the dream is a signal that it has successfully passed through what might be called an initiation. On May 13, 1990, Q’uo gave a basic description of what initiation involves:

There are various stages that an entity will be available to pass through during an incarnation that are determined before the incarnation as general categories in which lessons shall be attempted. As an entity assesses the upcoming, shall we say, incarnation and the potentials for growth that it wishes to include it will survey the kind of transformations, or initiations, as they are often called, that will be necessary to undergo as a portion of the learning process, much as a student within your colleges would determine what courses of mathematics would be necessary in order to master that particular field of study.

May we ask if there is a further query?

Jim: The third portion asks: “How did the nature of my question to my spirit mother constrain the form that her answer took?”

Carla: Could you read that again?


(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. This instrument is not aware of the content of this particular part of the dream, so we shall have the difficulty of working without this instrument’s awareness of what we refer to within our words. Therefore, this response is less than complete.

Let us consider the archetype of the two women, one of the negative polarity and one of the positive polarity. The central figure which is male has his hands crossed across the breast holding in each hand one of the women’s. The moment comes when the choice between these two women, between that which they represent in all of its richness, must be made. The particular energy which goes into that moment of choice constrains or configures the shape of that level or way which opens before the male which has made the choice. Therefore, we suggest a consideration of this archetype known to this instrument as The Choice, one of the tarot images.

The third question was: “How did the nature of my question to my spirit mother constrain the form that her answer took?” Because Carla was not aware of the attendee’s dream Q’uo said that their answer would be shorter and consisted of using the image of the Transformation of the Mind where a man has his arms crossed over his chest and is holding a negative female’s hand in his right hand and a positive female’s hand in his left hand, and he must choose which hand to hold onto and which to drop. In 100.6, Ra described this process of choice:

In this image of Transformation of Mind, then, each of the females points the way it would go, but is not able to move, nor are the two female entities striving to do so. They are at rest. The conscious entity holds both and will turn itself one way or the other or, potentially, backwards and forwards, rocking first one way then the other and not achieving the transformation. In order for the Transformation of Mind to occur, one principle governing the use of the deep mind must be abandoned.

May we ask if there is a further query?

Jim: The fourth portion asks: “Why did the experience occur in the dream state instead of during waking hours?”

Q’uo: We encourage the one known as [name] to rejoice, for the dream which has been given is of a certain level or kind in which what may be called reality or ground of reality is enhanced so that there is a reality to the dream which is greater than the waking reality.

In actuality, the subconscious is always far more fully conscious than the waking entity. So the, shall we say, syntax and vocabulary which in …

[Side one of tape ends.]

(Carla channeling)

…which informs these images is of an order impossible to contain within the waking state. Were this material to be given with this degree of clarity within the waking state the consensus reality which the self depends upon would tend to be greatly shaken, the energy of this harvest being that which the waking self could not bear.

Thusly, were this same information to be given in a waking vision, there would of necessity be some bias within the self which would form the pattern for the translation of these bright images into the grays, the pearl, off-white and tan of human experience as you know it, all the shades of gray and tan, the colors of shadow, rather than substance. Yet that which is so gray seems to the physical eye quite bright. Imagine the impact of that which would make the colors of your sky and your sea, your land and your earth, seem drab. Such brightness pierces the eye and blinds it. Thusly, the dream is skillfully knitted up for the self by the self in the way which allows the self to remain sturdily within the incarnational set of biases which define the perceptions of self to self at the moment.

The fourth question was: “Why did the experience occur in the dream state instead of during waking hours?” Q’uo said that the attendee should be glad that the experience occurred in the dream state because the subconscious mind is more aware than the waking entity’s mind, and if the information of the dream were given in the conscious state the consensus reality of the attendee would be greatly shaken and unable to bear the message. On January 10, 1987, Q’uo spoke of a method of using the subconscious mind to aid the conscious mind in becoming aware of dream messages:

I am Q’uo, and we might suggest the general use of the dreaming state is that which allows the seeker to use the subconscious mind such as one of your computer programmers would utilize the computer. The conscious mind is aware of the situation that presents the puzzle. It then, through its desire to solve the puzzle, provides that which it has gained of knowledge to the subconscious mind, and that information, when charged with the desire to find the path of love for the seeker, shall return to the seeker in what you call dreams that are coded in a symbolic fashion.

To become aware, then, of these messages from the subconscious mind is the goal of remembering the dreams. One may learn this skill by reminding the self upon retiring for the evening that each dream shall be remembered and recorded as soon as possible upon its completion. These dreams and their coded messages then may become the topics, shall we say, for the meditation of the day. In this fashion, the subconscious mind is programmed to release information which may serve to reveal more and more pieces of the puzzle so that the feet may be placed more firmly upon the path of love.

Is there another query?

Jim: The last portion asks: “My own opinion on how to best appreciate this experience is to continue to meditate on the observations and items of experience that depended from it. What else, either in my considerations or actions, might be beneficial in this same quest?”

We are those of Q’uo, and we suggest, first of all, that the skill which is able to move forward from such a dream-vision is encouraged, for to stay with the lesson, which is today, tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow is that energy which is baffling the natural flow of ongoing experience. Thusly, in the most general sense, it is well for the mind to open the hand, as it were, metaphorically speaking, to release from any bondage or prison that great gift which has been given to the self by the self. This self will continue to supply to the conscious mind that material which ennobles and illuminates the experiences now causing catalyst or material for the self to push and wrestle against and learn from.

It is more efficient to cooperate with that ongoing flow, to open the self forward and gaze into the present moment and the near future, having faith that that which has been harvested and accomplished within is safe and cannot be denied or stolen from the self.

In terms of those studies which move positively from this recorded group of images called the dream, we again suggest pondering and musing over the archetypical male and female roles played by each, whether reluctantly or gladly, throughout the incarnative experience.

Let us pull back then, and gaze at this experience. What is it to be male? What is it to be female? What power lies within the female? To what, within woman, does man bend the knee, and rightly so? And what within the present experience mimics these archetypical images in quality or feeling?

The last question from the attendee was: “My own opinion on how to best appreciate this experience is to continue to meditate on the observations and items of experience that depended from it. What else, either in my considerations or actions, might be beneficial in this same quest?” Q’uo’s response was that the attendee should move forward from this dream-vision as the subconscious mind will continue to give him experiences that will illuminate his spiritual path as an ongoing flow in each present moment. Q’uo completed their reply by asking the attendee to consider what it means to be a male or a female, and what is the power of the female that inspires the male to honor the female, and what within his present experiences resembles these archetypical images in the nature of their feelings? On March 7, 2020, Q’uo defined the male and female energies and how they can work together:

There is much within this concept that can be quite helpful to individuals and societies—the masculine concept of reaching, and affecting, and moving in a certain fashion—various energies that are available for the progress of the society as a whole. Therefore, we would suggest that the more balanced expression of masculine energies that reach and affect would be cooperation with those energies of the feminine nature that are able to provide a broader point of view.

The masculine reaching is balanced by the feminine suggestion of cooperation, of awaiting the reaching, of rejuvenating those masculine energies which reach, and are helpful and hopeful of being able to be replenished by the integration with the feminine energies that are there to receive and to energize, to inspire, and to allow masculine energies to be utilized in a more balanced fashion. There is the joining of the male and the female in the sacred marriage of unity of the One Infinite Creator that is seen then within all entities, so that there is not just one or the other, masculine or feminine, that is expressed in the entities and the cultures that are affected by expressions of such energies in one way or another at all times.

Therefore, we would suggest that the masculine energies that are able to realize they are only half of the solution to any problem are those energies which are more intelligent, sensitive, and liable to move forward in a more balanced fashion to allow both individuals and cultures to also gain from this balanced expression of the positive and the negative, the male and the female, and realize the Creator within each and within all by this expression.

May we ask if there are any queries from those present?

Jim: None from me, Q’uo. Thank you very much.

Q’uo: We thank you, my brothers.

As we take our leave of each for this working, we rejoice with you that you are able to pursue that spiritual quest which is every man’s with joy and faith. We applaud the courage it takes to persist beyond any limitations in intending and desiring with a whole heart to learn the truth, to witness to the light and to live serving in love for love’s sake.

When dreams occur, there is a glamour cast over the experience. The dream is fantastic, immediate, the speaking of a reality beyond that which you may see with the physical eyes. Yet this waking world into which we speak at this time is the place where, as this instrument would say, the rubber hits the road. This frustrating, confusing, chaotic, ongoing experience which entities rush through, calling it life only if it is thought about, this is the ground upon which lessons are learned, love is taken in and given out and all of worth is collected through the webs of perception.

When studying something like the dream about which the queries were asked, always keep in mind that respect which one has for a teacher, no matter how difficult. This illusion is your teacher. Your ability to learn is enhanced by information such as is within this dream, but this information always turns back into the waking self, pointing the way for further service, defining the nature of passages of seasons within the learning self.

Above all things, respect the incarnational self. Respect and offer homage to the intransigent and often negatively seeming face of everyday life. The mind turned towards the present moment with respect and charity is that mind which is ever closer to the veil of forgetting. That which accepts and reaches for the conscious life with gusto, though that gusto were for seemingly petty and everyday life, expresses great wisdom. You need not cling to any information but allow the information to travel as it will, occurring and recurring, and when recurred, thought about.

Yet, what does the entity hope for from the physical incarnation but the opportunity to make and remake the choice of how to serve?

Unbind the mind always and ask it freely to ramble. Then each day do some reflective considering of the flavor of the day’s perceptions. By such means the material of the day is seated and works down into the roots of mind. The unexamined in life is far less likely to be used by the subconscious to teach the conscious self, so look to the perceptions. How are the biases of the seeker that you are in mind affecting the priorities which order the perceptions which are allowed into the conscious mind? Look always, when reflecting upon experience, towards ways to improve that gathering of perceptions so that there is better information given to the self which makes the choices. And always, as always, we encourage the steady, persistent, daily meditative times, be they short or long, for these meditations seat and stabilize learning and open the door into the silence which births the creation.

We leave you in this silence, above all things. It is made of the Love of the one infinite Creator. And we leave you in the builded and constructed universe, which is all light. We are those of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning I continued watering different parts of the back yard to include the various flower gardens and bushes that are in need of water because of the high heat and lack of rain for the last few days. I also got a call the from vet who said that Benny is doing better as she has been on oxygen for nearly a day now and may be ready to come home later today if she continues to do well when they take her off of the oxygen. Her kidney and heart condition will require medication after she is home, and since she is a feral cat it will take some ingenuity to figure out how to give her medication. Later in the morning I vacuumed the first floor of the house.

This afternoon I sprayed all of the flowers in the yard with the Deer Stop spray. Then I used my limb loppers to cut some of the lower branches off of the Pawpaw tree beside the driveway so that I can get that area’s grass mowed more easily with my big mower. I also used the chainsaw to cut up the old mower ramp that broke and an old side door to the garage that was replaced earlier this year and put all the wood in the garbage can.

Positive And Negative Flows

I am of the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I greet you in Love.

The principle of Love has no beginning and no end; no movement in time; no inner dynamic of strength or weakness. Love is an energy which flows according to desire and spoken need. And, indeed, many unspoken needs create the flow of Spirit.

It is possible also to create a flow which dries and negates the voice of the Spirit of Love. You experience this flow as doubt. Yet it is the lack of positive faith which permits the negative flow.

We suggest that all self-recrimination be laid aside, for all people create both positive and negative flows within the life experience at different times. Only focus upon this moment and offer your gift of faith in the face of it, that a positive flow of Spirit may come to show to you the face of Love.

We leave you in peace, both now and ever.

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 Q’uo quote comes from December 12, 1993:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light through this instrument. At this time may we ask if there might be any further queries for our consideration?

Carla: I didn’t understand what he—what they meant, when they were talking about the deep mind. The images … It was just unclear to me about the deep mind, and the living, almost like beings in that deep mind, which are living. Somehow there was the suggestion that they’re not precisely us, they’re living like fish in the water of us in the deep mind. And I couldn’t make anything out of that, so I didn’t express it. And I wonder if you could try again through Jim, because I was interested in that image, but I couldn’t express it well enough to use it.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. And we would agree that this concept is one which is difficult to comprehend within your normal reference points of existence, for there is little of the deeper mind that your people choose to investigate beyond the individual subconscious. However, if an entity is successful in traveling to the roots of the mind beyond that that can be called the personal subconscious, there is the racial consciousness of its own kind, shall we say, and here there are experiences that have been gathered by those of the same racial heritage that affect the individual entities of that grouping …

[Side one of tape ends.]

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and am again with this instrument. We shall continue. Beyond the racial mind there is the planetary mind that is different than the racial mind on this particular planetary influence. For, as you are aware, many there are upon your planet that have had their beginnings elsewhere upon other planetary influences, so that there are various racial minds which compose your planetary mind. It is possible for a third-density planet to evolve with only its original second-density population progressing to the third, so that the racial and planetary minds are more alike if not identical.

Moving further into the roots of the tree of mind, we come to that portion which is called the archetypical mind. It is here that the blueprint for your evolutionary process is found, so that the influences that you experience from this source are of a fundamental nature, and provide insight and inspiration into your daily experience only in the form of echoes, hints and shadows. At the level of the archetypical mind there is the participation, both of the individual entity such as yourself and entities of quite another nature, though all are one in truth. The creative forces or intelligences that are responsible for this portion of the creation in its very essence are those which work upon the level of the archetypical mind, refining that cosmic mind of the one Creator in such and such a fashion, so that there is the possibility that the Creator may know Itself with greater variety and intensity than if the cosmic mind did not experience further refinement.

It is here, at this level, that we were speaking previously in suggesting that there are concepts that are basic to third-density experience which have their origin at this level of archetypes. And because of this similarity of lessons to be learned there is the seeming repetition of experience for the seeker of truth within your illusion. Thus, you draw from the same well waters that nourish your life-being and give it its flavor, its élan.

When Carla was channeling Q’uo in this session Q’uo used some descriptions of the deep mind which Carla did not understand to the point of not channeling all of the concepts that Q’uo was giving her, so she asked Q’uo to clarify the deep mind as they channeled through me. Q’uo began their response by saying that the deep mind is hard to comprehend by most people because it is beneath the subconscious mind and moves into the roots of the racial mind, and because many of Earth’s population are from other planets there are a number of racial minds that make up the planetary mind of Earth. Then Q’uo said that moving further down into the deeper mind there is the archetypical mind that contains the blueprint for the nature of our evolutionary process, and there are various Logoi that have refined the nature of the cosmic mind of the Creator so that in our evolutionary process we may aid the Creator in knowing Itself better. Then Q’uo completed their reply by saying that it was at this level of the archetypical mind that they were speaking about when channeling through Carla when they said that there were lessons native to the third density illusion so that many seekers would have a similarity of lessons that would appear as a repetition of experience as all would be drawing the water of life from the same well of inspiration. In 90.14, Ra spoke of the nature of the archetypical mind and its relationship to the racial mind and planetary mind:

Questioner: Now, as I understand it the archetypes are the biases of a very fundamental nature that, under free will, generate the experiences of each entity. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. The archetypical mind is part of that mind which informs all experience. Please recall the definition of the archetypical mind as the repository of those refinements to the cosmic or all-mind made by this particular Logos and peculiar only to this Logos. Thus, it may be seen as one of the roots of mind, not the deepest but certainly the most informative in some ways. The other root of mind to be recalled is that racial or planetary mind which also informs the conceptualizations of each entity to some degree.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you. That was fascinating.

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

Carla: Not from me, Q’uo.

We are those of Q’uo, and are aware that we have spoken for a goodly portion of your time this day, and we are most grateful to each of you for inviting us to do so. We are overjoyed at this opportunity, and we can assure you that though it seems there is repetition upon repetition within your illusion, that the effort you make to greet each experience with love and with light is unique, and adds its own portion not only to your experience but to the experience of the one Creator. And each effort, each breath, and each thought that you take is treasured by those who observe and have responsibility for this progress as your teachers, your friends, and your guides, shall we say.

At this time, we shall take our leave of this instrument and this group, leaving each, as always, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I took Benny to the vet because she had not eaten any of her food, and she was not in her usual place in the tower as she has not been in the last few days. When I found her under some shelves she looked at me for a second and then closed her eyes and began to breathe deeply as if she might be in pain. My vet said that the X-ray that they took showed that she had pneumonia and maybe a cancerous growth. They suggested that I take her to the Louisville Emergency Veterinary Clinic for more testing. I was able to get right in to see their vet because this is a critical situation for Benny. They suggested that I hospitalize her with them for the weekend while they ran further tests. Later in the afternoon they gave me a call to let me know that she has heart problems and that they were giving her medications for them, and they would continue to give me updates through the weekend.

This afternoon Dianne and I went over to a care home in southern Indiana to visit our friend, Connie. We took along some fruit and berries to snack on, and I showed Connie some pictures of my flower garden and a couple of videos I took of three fauns and a red fox kit that I have seen in my yard recently. Then I read more of The Things We Don’t Forget, by Dianne Aprile as Connie has always enjoyed the spiritual concepts and sense of humor in this book. We completed our visit with a 5-minute meditation.

Holy Ground Of Your Being

I am of the principle of Love, and I greet you as the spirit of Jesus the Christ who moves in the world in the present moment.

What, indeed, is holy? And how can we be called the Holy Spirit? Gaze about you as you move through your daily activities. What see you that is holy? What see you that is blessed?

As you gaze outward, you see the blessings of tree and flower, shrub and grass. Yet do you gaze inward to find the holy ground within? As you sit in contemplation of these words, be aware that you are upon the holy ground of your own being, created in holiness, sent forth into this earthly world in holiness, and now suffering and rejoicing in holiness.

Know and feel the divinity of being which lies beneath all imperfection and then know that, by the power of the Holy Spirit that speaks within, each of you may use those hands for holy things, for service to each little one that belongs to the Father.

We leave you in love and peace, now and always. Amen.
