I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.11-.12:

Questioner: I would like, if possible, an example of the activity we call Catalyst of the Mind in a particular individual undergoing this process. Could Ra give an example of that?

Ra: I am Ra. All that assaults your senses is catalyst. We, in speaking to this support group through this instrument, offer catalyst. The configurations of each in the group of body offer catalyst through comfort/discomfort. In fact all that is unprocessed that has come before the notice of a mind/body/spirit complex is catalyst.

Questioner: Then presently we receive catalyst of the mind as we are aware of Ra’s communication, and we receive catalyst of the body as our body senses all of the inputs to the body, as I understand it. But could Ra then describe catalyst of the spirit, and are we at this time receiving that catalyst also? And if not, could Ra give an example of that?

Ra: I am Ra. Catalyst being processed by the body is catalyst for the body. Catalyst being processed by the mind is catalyst for the mind. Catalyst being processed by the spirit is catalyst for the spirit. An individual mind/body/spirit complex may use any catalyst which comes before its notice—be it through the body and its senses, or through mentation, or through any other more highly developed source—and use this catalyst in its unique way to form an experience unique to it, with its biases.”

Since we are discussing Card Number Three, the Catalyst of the Mind, Don notes that in communicating with Ra we are aware of catalyst of the mind and of the body. But he couldn’t perceive any catalyst of the spirit, so he asks Ra if we are receiving that catalyst too in this communication. Ra’s reply basically says that any catalyst a seeker of truth perceives can be used by the mind, the body, or the spirit depending upon the unique needs of the seeker. During the Ra sessions I would meditate and send energy to Carla and image it flowing from her head downward through all her energy centers. This was the direction from which those of Ra would enter her body to utilize her energy centers, vocal cords, tongue, and lips to communicate with us. So the actual communication was catalyst for my mind, which I enhanced by mental visualizations. In 78.7, Ra suggested that Don and I could do what I had already been doing in this regard:

Questioner: Thank you. In utilizing the energetic displacements of thought-forms energizing the instrument during contact most efficiently, what specifically could we do?

Ra: I am Ra. Each of the support group has an excess of love and light to offer the instrument during the working. Already each sends to the instrument love, light, and thoughts of strength of the physical, mental, and spiritual configurations. These sending are forms. You may refine these sendings until the fullest manifestations of love and light are sent into the energy web of this entity which functions as instrument. Your exact sending is, in order to be most potent, the creature of your own making.

The cramped position of my body as I sat cross-legged on the floor brought catalyst for my body. In 64.20, Don asked Ra a question for me that dealt with this catalyst of the body:

Questioner: In the healing exercises, when you say “examine the sensations of the body,” do you mean those sensations available to the body via the five senses? Or in relation to the natural functions of the body such as touching, loving, sexual sharing, and company? Or are you speaking of something else altogether?

Ra: I am Ra. The questioner may perceive its body complex at this moment. It is experiencing sensations. Most of these sensations, or in this case nearly all of them, are transient and without interest. However, the body is the creature of the mind. Certain sensations carry importance due to the charge or power which is felt by the mind upon the experience of this sensation.

For instance, at this space/time nexus one sensation is carrying a powerful charge and may be examined. This is the sensation of what you call the distortion towards discomfort due to the cramped position of the body complex during this working. In balancing you would then explore this sensation. Why is this sensation powerful? Because it was chosen in order that the entity might be of service to others in energizing this contact.

Each sensation that leaves the aftertaste of meaning upon the mind, that leaves the taste within the memory, shall be examined. These are the sensations of which we speak.

And my images of the energy entering Carla’s crown chakra and traveling through all of her energy centers also provided catalyst of the spirit—as well as my mind as I mentioned earlier–as I was attempting to transfer spiritual energies to her to aid the contact with Ra. In 72.17, Ra mentioned that they also entered Carla’s crown chakra to utilize her as an instrument:

We of Ra approach this instrument in narrow-band contact through violet ray. Others might pierce down through this ray to any energy center. We, for instance, make great use of this instrument’s blue-ray energy center as we are attempting to communicate our distortion-understandings of the Law of One.

This morning I again began in the front yard and used my watering wand and garden hose to water all of the flowers that needed water and then did the same for the side yard and the flower gardens around the fish pond. In the afternoon I watered all of the flowers in the back yard which needed water, and for the most part, in the front, side, and back yard almost all of the flowers needed water. There is a chance for rain tomorrow to go along with the record high temperatures. I am certainly hoping for rain!

Dan D. Lion continues to eat and pee and enjoy our times together outside throughout the day. However, I have just discovered that his sister, Chloe, has stopped eating. Yesterday was the first day that she did not eat any of the three doses of cat lax mixed in with canned cat food. She has always been very good about eating these mixtures. And it finally became clear to me that the reason I have not had to fill either of the two bowls of hard cat food in her room recently is because she is not eating them. So she has not eaten for at least two or three days now.

I took her to the vet to have blood drawn for labs, and the vet let me know that all of her kidney values were the highest that she had ever seen. We have decided that the best course of action now for Chloe is for me to drop her off at the vet’s early in the morning for the next three days and have fluids given her intravenously rather than sub-cutaneously as I do ever other day. The we will draw blood for more labs to see if the high numbers have come down.

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.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.9:

Questioner: The feet of the entity seem to be on an unstable platform that is dark to the rear and light to the front. I am guessing that possibly this indicates that the entity standing on this could sway in either direction, toward the left or the right-hand path. Is this in any way correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is most perceptive.” 

In Card Number Three, the Catalyst of the Mind, the entity in the picture is sitting on a square, facing left, and her feet are resting inside what looks like a quarter moon. This is the “unstable platform” that Don asks Ra about. He notes that the platform is dark in its rear portion and light in its front, so he asks Ra if this coloration and shape of the platform might mean that the seeker of truth could sway either to the light or to the dark, the right-hand path of service to others or the left-hand path of service to self. Ra simply says that Don is “most perceptive”. So this means that no matter what the catalyst that we may face in our daily lives we have the opportunity to look at it in either a positive sense or in a negative sense.  Just because catalyst at first glance seems to be negative doesn’t’ mean that we have to look at it as such. We can engage the love in our hearts at any time and magically transform any catalyst for a positive use as Ra referred to in 80.15:

Even the most unhappy of experiences, shall we say, which seem to occur in the Catalyst of the adept, seen from the viewpoint of the spirit, may, with the discrimination possible in shadow, be worked with until light equaling the light of brightest noon descends upon the adept and positive or service-to-others illumination has occurred. 

And in 95.24, Ra gives another example of how we may do this on our spiritual journey:

Questioner: From that statement I interpret the following meaning: That if the Experience of the Mind has sufficiently chosen the right-hand path—as total purity is approached in choosing of the right-hand path—then total imperviousness from the effect of the left-hand catalyst is also approached. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is exquisitely perceptive. The seeker which has purely chosen the service-to-others path shall certainly not have a variant apparent incarnational experience. There is no outward shelter in your illusion from the gusts, flurries, and blizzards of quick and cruel catalyst.

However, to the pure, all that is encountered speaks of the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. The cruelest blow is seen with an ambiance of challenges offered and opportunities to come. Thusly, the great pitch of light is held high above such an one so that all interpretation may be seen to be protected by light.

The hot, dry weather returned today, and this meant that I would need to continue watering various of the flower gardens. This morning I used my watering wand and garden hose to water the flowers along the parking area in front of the house, the Cone Flowers on the Ruins Mound, and the Giant Sunflowers and Hollyhocks to the left of the fish pond. In the afternoon I watered the Azaleas in the cross area, the Astilbe, and the Sun Patiens in the Sun Mandala behind the garage.

Dan D. Lion peed again early this morning, and he purred for about ten minutes as I began my first meditation of the day. His appetite is still quite good, and I have the sense that he is happy to be here and always glad when we take one of our walks outside during the day. However, it looks like his sister, Chloe, is getting jealous of all the attention that I am giving Dan D., so I will need to be sure to give her more attention to keep her happy.

Faith And Forgiveness

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

Faith. Forgiveness. These two words move together in rhythm, creating a more beautiful dance of your life experience. It takes a foolish and unconditional faith to forgive; to forgive the self and to forgive others. But those things which are not forgiven are as burdens carried which may be laid down, stopping all consequences, releasing all personal ties to the difficulties of your life experience.

As you forgive in faith, so you act as unconditional love would have you act. Yet, do not do this too early. But rather, be sure that you have created in yourself a new heart and a new spirit, a new knowledge of faith, that the faith and forgiveness may not come from your will, but through you from the Father.

For only in the Father’s infinite mercy may He forgive iniquity. And you are the channel of that forgiveness, as is everyone who has consciousness and emotion, potentially.

Speak well in the world. Yet always, within, dwell in an humble and holy spirit of unconditional love, having the faith to forgive and forgive and forgive again. For those who have forgiven have no further connection with the spiritual difficulties produced by the difficult situations.

Self forgiven and other-self forgiven, you may move through your day in a dance of joy, doing all that you do for the love of the Father, finding no chore or task too simple to be blessed. Free yourself, my friends, by faith and forgiveness, into the peace of Jesus the Christ.

In this peace and unconditional love we leave you, now and forever. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.8:

Questioner: There seems to be no large hint of polarity in this drawing except for the possible coloration of the many cups in the wheel. Part of them are colored black, and part of the cup is white. Would this indicate that each experience has within it a possible negative or positive use of that experience that is randomly generated by this seeming wheel of fortune?

Ra: I am Ra. Your supposition is thoughtful. However, it is based upon an addition to the concept complex which is astrological in origin. Therefore, we request that you retain the concept of polarity, but release the cups from their strictured form. The element you deal with is not in motion in its original form, but is, indeed, the abiding sun which, from the spirit, shines in protection over all catalyst available from the beginning of complexity to the discerning mind/body/spirit complex.

Indeed you may, rather, find polarity expressed, firstly, by the many opportunities offered in the material illusion which is imaged by the not-white and not-dark square upon which the entity of the image is seated; secondly, upon the position of that seated entity. It does not meet opportunity straight on but glances off to one side or another.

In the image you will note a suggestion that the offering of the illusion will often seem to suggest the opportunities lying upon the left-hand path or, as you might refer to it more simply, the service-to-self path. This is a portion of the nature of the Catalyst of the Mind.”

Now Don begins the questioning on Card #3, the Catalyst of the Mind. He asks Ra if the cups in the wheel of fortune are indications that each experience has the potential for positive or negative interpretation. Ra responded by saying that the wheel of fortune is astrological in origin, and we could remove it from the card. Apparently, the original symbol was the “abiding sun” which “shined in protection from the spirit” over all catalyst of the seeker of truth. This suggests that no seeker would be expected to bear more difficulty than it could process successfully as a conscious being. In 22.6, Ra said that the shortened life span from 900 years at the beginning of the third density was another means of protecting the seeker from experiencing too much catalyst:

Questioner: Would this shortened life span help the entity in any way in that he would have more times in between incarnations to review his mistakes, or would this shortened life span hinder him?

Ra: I am Ra. Both are correct. The shortening of the life span is a distortion of the Law of One which suggests that an entity not receive more experience in more intensity than it may bear. This is only in effect upon an individual level and does not hold sway over planetary or social complexes.

Thus the shortened life span is due to the necessity for removing an entity from the intensity of experience which ensues when wisdom and love are, having been rejected, reflected back into the consciousness of the Creator without being accepted as part of the self, this then causing the entity to have the need for healing and for much evaluation of the incarnation.

The incorrectness lies in the truth that, given appropriate circumstances, a much longer incarnation in your space/time continuum is very helpful for continuing this intensive work until conclusions have been reached through the catalytic process.

Ra continues by saying that polarity may be found in this image to be represented by the black and while square that the entity sits upon. The entity seated on the square is seated sideways and faces left, which Ra said reveals that catalyst in the third density often seems negative. This makes sense since the veil of forgetting hides all of the true nature of creation as one thing, made by Love, and formed of light. Instead of seeing this as our ultimate reality, we look upon a seemingly fragmented illusion where people are separate from each other and pose potential threats to us as they compete with us for money, position, power, etc. In 85.18-.19, Ra gave a detailed description of how the veil of forgetting hid the true nature of the creation from third density:

Questioner: After the veiling process certain veiled functions or activities must have been paramount in creating evolution in desired polarized directions. I was just wondering which of these had the greatest effect on polarization?

Ra: I am Ra. The most effectual veiling was that of the mind.

Questioner: I would like to carry that on to find out what specific functions of the mind were most effectual, and the three or four most effective changes brought about to create the polarization.

Ra: I am Ra. This is an interesting query. The primary veiling was of such significance that it may be seen to be analogous to the mantling of the earth over all the jewels within the earth’s crust; whereas previously all facets of the Creator were consciously known. After the veiling, almost no facets of the Creator were known to the mind. Almost all was buried beneath the veil.

If one were to attempt to list those functions of mind most significant in that they might be of aid in polarization, one would need to begin with the faculty of visioning, envisioning, or far-seeing. Without the veil the mind was not caught in your illusory time. With the veil, space/time is the only obvious possibility for experience.

Also upon the list of significant veiled functions of the mind would be that of dreaming. The so-called dreaming contains a great deal which, if made available to the conscious mind and used, shall aid it in polarization to a great extent.

The third function of the mind which is significant and which has been veiled is that of the knowing of the body. The knowledge of and control over the body, having been lost to a great extent in the veiling process, is thusly lost from the experience of the seeker. Its knowledge before the veiling is of small use. Its knowledge after the veiling, and in the face of what is now a dense illusion of separation of body complex from mind complex, is quite significant.

Perhaps the most important and significant function that occurred due to the veiling of the mind from itself is not in itself a function of mind but rather is a product of the potential created by this veiling. This is the faculty of will or pure desire.

Today was a Sabbath Day of Rest, but since our dry spell continues—happily with cooler temperatures yesterday and today—I spent a good deal of time this morning watering flowers in the front, side, and back yards. I didn’t want to lose the watering momentum as the high temperatures will be returning tomorrow and last at least through next Saturday. I made my usual errand run after lunch with my first stop at Feeder’s Supply where I bought food for the cats and a 40 lb. bag of bird seed for the birds and squirrels. Then I stopped at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy food for myself. My last stop was at Walgreen’s where I bought some ice cream and some paper goods.

This morning I was very happy to see that Dan D. Lion had finally peed twice last night, the first time in the last few days. When he doesn’t pee, the fluids collect in his body and cause him discomfort. His appetite remains good, and that is a blessing as his body weight has fallen to seven pounds from his normal twelve pounds. I took him outside for a few walks again today, as he has always been an inside/outside cat. I don’t let him outside by himself anymore since his end stage renal failure situation could result in his passing away suddenly in unknown territory.

The Sturdy Flame Of Your Consciousness

Greetings in the love of that consciousness which is Christ. I am known to you as the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We thank you for this time, acknowledging that we are blessed by extending that holiness to you, for could you but pierce the many distractions and confusions of your daily life, you would see clearly the blessedness of your bright incarnations, the sturdy flame of your consciousness.

If we could inform you regarding the love which you express in your being with every breath, you could see yourself and others without distortion of any kind; without confusion; without the golden-hued glasses of memory. Turn, then, to the present moment, my child, for it is, as yet, unspoiled by distortion and confusion and contains the consciousness of Christ, entire and perfect.

Peace be with you, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.4-.5:

Questioner: Now, if I understand correctly, prior to the veiling process the electrical polarities, the polarities of radiation and absorption, all existed in some part of the creation, but the service-to-others/service-to-self polarity that we’re familiar with had not evolved and only showed up after the veiling process as an addition to the list of possible polarities, you might say, that could be made in the creation. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: Would you correct me on that?

Ra: I am Ra. The description of polarity as service to self and service to others, from the beginning of our creation, dwelt within the architecture of the primal Logos. Before the veiling process the impact of actions taken by mind/body/spirits upon their consciousnesses was not palpable to a significant enough degree to allow the expression of this polarity to be significantly useful. Over the period of what you would call time this expression of polarity did, indeed, work to alter the biases of mind/body/spirits so that they might eventually be harvested. The veiling process made the polarity far more effective.”

Here Don is assuming the electrical polarities were the only ones that existed prior to the veiling process in third density. In the previous question and answer Ra mentioned the “electrical polarities” in this way:

Questioner: Thank you. The foundation of our present illusion we have stated previously to be the concept of polarity. I would ask that, since we have defined the two polarities as service to others and service to self, is there a more complete or eloquent or enlightening definition? Or any more information that we don’t have at this time on the two ends of the poles that would give us a better insight into the nature of polarity itself?

Ra: I am Ra. It is unlikely that there is a more pithy or eloquent description of the polarities of third density than “service to others” and “service to self” due to the nature of the mind/body/spirit complex’s distortions towards perceiving concepts relating to philosophy in terms of ethics or activity. However, we might consider the polarities using slightly variant terms. In this way a possible enrichment of insight might be achieved for some.

One might consider the polarities with the literal nature enjoyed by the physical polarity of the magnet. The negative and positive, with their electrical characteristics, may be seen to be just as in the physical sense.

So in this question Don asks Ra if the “electrical polarities” were the only polarities before the veil of forgetting, and he further assumed that the service-to-others and service-to-self polarities did not exist until after the veiling process. Ra said that all polarities, including service-to-others and service-too-self, existed as part of “the architecture of the Primal Logos.” Ra had mentioned that the Primal Logos had all of the details of the creation to come within Its being before the creation was actually made, and now we discover that this plan also included the two paths back to the Creator. In 30.1, Ra confirmed that the concepts of service-to-others and service-to-self existed since before the creation began:

Questioner: I am going to make a statement and then let you correct it if I have made any errors. This is the statement: creation is a single entity, or unity. If only a single entity exists, then the only concept of service is service to self. If this single entity subdivides, then the concept of service of one of its parts to the other part is born. From this concept springs the equality of service to self, or to others.

It would seem that as the Logos subdivided, parts would select each orientation. As individualized entities emerge in space/time then I would assume that they have polarity. Is this statement correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This statement is quite perceptive and correct until the final phrase in which we note that the polarities begin to be explored only at the point when a third-density entity becomes aware of the possibility of choice between the concept, or distortion, of service to self or service to others. This marks the end of what you may call the unselfconscious, or innocent, phase of conscious awareness.

Ra also suggested that the veil of forgetting proved to be a valuable tool for accelerating evolution. The veil hid nearly all of the true nature of the creation and made it necessary for seekers of truth to work harder to find the truth of love, light, joy, and unity in themselves and in the world around them. This hard work can also be called polarization in consciousness and made graduation a far quicker process. In 83.16, Ra described the process of the penetration of the veil of forgetting:

Questioner: What techniques and methods of penetration of the veil were planned, and are there any others that have occurred other than those planned?

Ra: I am Ra. There were none planned by the first great experiment. As all experiments, this rested upon the nakedness of hypothesis. The outcome was unknown.

It was discovered, experientially and empirically, that there were as many ways to penetrate the veil as the imagination of mind/body/spirit complexes could provide. The desire of mind/body/spirit complexes to know that which was unknown drew to them the dreaming and the gradual opening to the seeker of all of the balancing mechanisms leading to adepthood and communication with teach/learners which could pierce this veil.

The various unmanifested activities of the self were found to be productive, in some degree, of penetration of the veil. In general we may say that by far the most vivid and even extravagant opportunities for the piercing of the veil are a result of the interaction of polarized entities.

This morning I was able to take a break from watering my flower gardens as the temperature was a very comfortable 80 degrees for the high. This allowed me to work on a number of emails that had to be put aside until the watering was up to date. This afternoon I made my monthly visit to a dear friend of Carla’s and mine who has been in a care home in southern Indiana for three years now due to having two strokes in the summer of 2019. I discovered that her hearing is now failing, so that it was much harder to communicate. Her life is such a challenge.

Dan D. Lion is doing well as far as having a good appetite, and the is very important because if you can keep the weight on a cat with kidney problems it will live longer. However, Dan D. is still not peeing, and I hope that he will do so soon because those fluids are building up in his body again and will likely make him uncomfortable.

Give Praise!

I am of that principle known to you as Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine and everlasting love.

I ask you to turn your minds this moment to praise. Praise the daylight, the clouds in their majesty, the mist and fog, the thunderstorm and the snow.

Praise that night which enables each to appreciate the light of day. Praise each shadow of that darkness for the beauties which come to one in the night: the dreams, the visions and hopes of paradise.

Praise the Father that has created you.

Praise your creation, for though you suffer, you live and laugh and love.

Praise consciousness itself, for in it lies the voice and the presence of the Father.

Above all, praise Jesus, the agent of redemption. And praise redemption itself, that gateway through which the journey may be made into eternity. Within each moment there is this opportunity. How exalted may your praises be! How joyful the alleluias!

Give praise! Give praise, O people of the Creator, O children of the Father! And in your heart may you experience the peace of moving into alignment with love, with Christ, with the Father, and with the Spirit who speaks to comfort.

Peace be with you now and forever. Amen.

I would like to remind everyone that we are holding our Meditation for World Peace again tomorrow morning at 11 am Eastern Time. We will meditate for ten minutes and send love, light, and healing energies to the people of Ukraine and Russia.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 93.3:

Questioner: Thank you. The foundation of our present illusion we have stated previously to be the concept of polarity. I would ask that, since we have defined the two polarities as service to others and service to self, is there a more complete or eloquent or enlightening definition? Or any more information that we don’t have at this time on the two ends of the poles that would give us a better insight into the nature of polarity itself?

Ra: I am Ra. It is unlikely that there is a more pithy or eloquent description of the polarities of third density than “service to others” and “service to self” due to the nature of the mind/body/spirit complex’s distortions towards perceiving concepts relating to philosophy in terms of ethics or activity. However, we might consider the polarities using slightly variant terms. In this way a possible enrichment of insight might be achieved for some.

One might consider the polarities with the literal nature enjoyed by the physical polarity of the magnet. The negative and positive, with their electrical characteristics, may be seen to be just as in the physical sense.

It is to be noted in this context that it is quite impossible to judge the polarity of an act or an entity, just as it is impossible to judge the relative goodness of the negative and positive poles of the magnet.

Another method of viewing polarities might involve the concept of radiation/absorption. That which is positive is radiant; that which is negative is absorbent.”

During the Ra contact Don often would ask questions in a different way in areas that he considered to be of basic importance in grasping the Law of One. By doing so he was trying to get more of Ra’s perspective in these areas to enhance our understanding of them. In 21.8, Don made this point clear:

Questioner: I don’t mean to be covering ground that we’ve already covered, but there’re some points that we have trouble with fully understanding, and sometimes I have to ask the question a different way to fully understand it. Thank you.

In this question he is asking for more information about the positive and negative paths. Ra’s first response is to say that it was unlikely that we could get a better answer than service-to-others and service-to-self because of humans placing so much importance on describing philosophical principles in terms of ethics and or morality. In 78.14, Ra gave another example of what might be called polarity in the previous octave of experience:

Questioner: But, in doing this, there was at the center of the galaxy the lack of knowledge, or the lack of concept of possibility of extending the First Distortion so as to allow for what we have experienced as polarity. Was there any concept of polarity carried through from the previous octave in the sense of service-to-others or service-to-self polarity?

Ra: I am Ra. There was polarity in the sense of the mover and the moved. There was no polarity in the sense of service to self and service to others.

Then Ra suggested the two paths could also be likened to the magnet with a positive pole and a negative pole. People could be seen in the same way as the magnet with positive and negative actions. Ra also used this analogy as a means of emphasizing that neither the polarity of the magnet nor most actions of people could be judged relatively good or bad. In 95.24, Ra gave a good example of this type of a situation:

Questioner: From that statement I interpret the following meaning: That if the Experience of the Mind has sufficiently chosen the right-hand path—as total purity is approached in choosing of the right-hand path—then total imperviousness from the effect of the left-hand catalyst is also approached. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is exquisitely perceptive. The seeker which has purely chosen the service-to-others path shall certainly not have a variant apparent incarnational experience. There is no outward shelter in your illusion from the gusts, flurries, and blizzards of quick and cruel catalyst.

However, to the pure, all that is encountered speaks of the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. The cruelest blow is seen with an ambiance of challenges offered and opportunities to come. Thusly, the great pitch of light is held high above such an one so that all interpretation may be seen to be protected by light.

Ra concludes their answer by using the concepts of radiance and absorption to enhance the description of the two paths. The positive path could be said to be radiant in regards to its shining of light to others and the negative path could be said to be absorbent of the light of others. In 80.6-.7, Ra gave a very practical example of both radiance and absorption of light in the positive and negative sense respectively:

Questioner: What would our fifth-density visitor hope to gain for himself if he were to be successful in terminating this contact?

Ra: I am Ra. As we have previously stated, the entity hopes to gain a portion of that light; that is, the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument. Barring this, the entity intends to put out the light.

Questioner: I understand this up to a point—that point is if the entity were successful in either of these attempts, of what value would this be to him? Would it increase his ability? Would it increase his polarity? By what mechanism would it do whatever it does?

Ra: I am Ra. Having attempted for some of your space/time with no long-lasting result to do these things, the entity may be asking this question of itself.

The gain for triumph is an increase in negative polarity to the entity in that it has removed a source of radiance and, thereby, offered to this space/time the opportunity of darkness where there once was light. In the event that it succeeded in enslaving the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument it would have enslaved a fairly powerful entity, thus adding to its power.

And in 80.17, Ra used the Significator of the Spirit, which is the Sun, as an example of how radiance and absorption might be manifested:

Questioner: How would you describe the Significator of the Spirit?

Ra: I am Ra. In answer to the previous query we set about doing just this. The Significator of the Spirit is that living entity which either radiates or absorbs the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator: radiates it to others or absorbs it for the self.

This morning the forecast was for severe thunderstorms by mid-morning. But when the afternoon came and there were no storms and not enough rain to even measure, I decided that I would go ahead and continue watering the gardens. My first step was to pump a quarter of the water out of the fish pond and use it to water the six gardens that surround it. After I cleaned the filters for the pump I noticed that the wind that blew through this morning had knocked over many of the 4 and 5-ft. Giant Hibiscus, so I used plastic ties to attach them to 4-ft. garden stakes.

After the fish pond had been refilled with fresh water I attached the watering wand to the garden hose and went from the front parking area to the far back corner of the yard and watered all the plants that looked like they needed water, which was most of them. We have had four days in a row of temperatures in the upper 90s and no rain. The forecast for next week looks the same, so I see a good deal more watering in my future.

Dan D. Lion is still eating well, and I am much heartened by that. However, he is once again not peeing, so that is a source of concern. The vet said that this will be a process of good days and bad days intermingling for the rest of his life for whatever length it may be in days or weeks.

Offer The Self In Sacrifice

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

Jesus the Christ taught the disciples to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” The Creator has chosen that all things may be fed, upon all levels, by the breaking, sacrificing and blessing of substance.

You know already of physical food and you know of the food that emotion requires, food that is given from one soul to another of anger or of peace. Yet this act of giving of emotional and spiritual food is often not graced with a prayerful attitude or the sacrificial breaking of the self in order to open up those few words of humanity to the infinite riches of the words and feelings of the spirit of love.

In pride the manna of the love of God cannot be shared. Therefore, may each seeking soul offer itself in sacrifice, opening the spirit, breaking the loaves and fishes and blessing them, that there may be abundance of love and peace and all that may be necessary for the beloved creations of the Father.

May you feel that peace and that joy this day and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 92.35:

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. The support group is functioning well.

The instrument, itself, might ponder some earlier words and consider their implications. We say this because the continued calling upon vital energies, if allowed to proceed to the end of the vital energy, will end this contact. There is not the need for continued calling upon these energies. The instrument must find the key to this riddle or face a growing loss of this particular service at this particular space/time nexus.

All is well. The alignments are exemplary.

I am Ra. I leave you, my friends, in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, then, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the One Infinite Creator. Adonai.”

At the end of every session Don would ask if there was any way to make Carla more comfortable or to improve the contact. Ra answered this time with a riddle that was meant to help both Carla and the contact. Ra mentioned a number of times that Carla had a distortion towards martyrdom in that she would give all that she had to be able to serve others by functioning as the instrument for the Ra contact. Ra suggested that Carla “ponder some earlier words and ponder their implications”. These words came from 92.1-.2:

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The condition of this instrument is slightly more distorted towards weakness in each respect since the previous asking.

Questioner: Is there a specific cause for this, and could you tell us what it is if so?

Ra: I am Ra. The effective cause of the increased physical distortions have to do with the press of continued substantial levels of the distortion you call pain. Various vehicular distortions, other than the specifically arthritic, have been accentuated by psychic greeting, and the combined effect has been deleterious.

The continued slight but noticeable losses of the vital energies is due to the necessity for the instrument to call upon this resource in order to clear the, shall we say, way for a carefully purified service-to-others working. The use of the will in the absence of physical and, in this particular case, mental and mental/emotional energies requires vital energies.

So what Ra was doing here was asking Carla to consider applying a little more wisdom to balance her excessive compassion to the point of martyrdom. She eventually agreed to let Don and me have the major say as to whether or not she was in good enough shape for a session with Ra as Ra first recommended in 44.1:

Questioner: The instrument had some question as to her vitality. We were having a hard time appraising it. Is it possible for you to comment on this?

Ra: I am Ra. We scan this instrument and find that we may be of service without infringement due to this instrument’s decision to abide by the most careful appraisal possible rather than the most desired.

We have been surprised that we have been able to maintain contact on a regular basis during this most intense period of negatively influenced interference. Sexual energy transfers have at some workings given this instrument additional vital resources upon which to draw. However, this is not so at this working and, therefore, the will of the instrument drives its bodily complex. This instrument has no judgment about this service. The faculty of will, while recognized as most central and valuable, could in this application cause serious distortion in bodily complex of the instrument.

May we note that martyrdom is not necessarily helpful. We ask this instrument to examine these thoughts, judge, and discriminate the possible truth of them; and if they be deemed true, we suggest this instrument release the power of judgment to the support group whose interests are balanced far more than this instrument’s. Allow decisions to be made without expectation or attachment to the outcome. Our hopes, may we say, for long-term contact through this instrument depend upon its maturing ability to be of service to other-selves by accepting their help and thus remaining a viable instrument.

May we thank the questioner for allowing us to speak to this point, for we were aware of the distortions incumbent upon one whose will to serve is not regulated by knowledge of limitations of bodily-complex distortion.

This morning once again I attempted to get the majority of the watering for the day done before the afternoon when the forecast was for 98 degrees. So I used the wand to water the Astilbe patch, the cross area, the Secret Garden, and the Sun Mandala in the back yard. Then I watered the area between the garage and the fire pit, the Hollyhocks, and the Giant Sunflowers. In the early afternoon I removed all of the Daffodil leaves around the gardens on both sides of the fish pond. Now I am hoping that the Day Lilies in these gardens will bloom and have plenty of room to grow. In the evening I used the sprinkler to water the Sun Patiens on the Flower Fall in the front yard. The forecast for tomorrow is for the possibility of rain, and I hope we get it plus somewhat lower temperatures.

Be Alive Today

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

Let your lives be alive today as you spend as much mental time as possible with the consciousness of unconditional love which is the essence of Jesus the Christ. Let your day be one of joyful experience. For resting in the peace which sees that all challenges and difficulties are blessings, one may continually be moved by the presence of love, regardless of circumstance.

Let this be your day for quiet and confident remembering of the Father and of the consciousness of love which is Jesus the Christ. It is not easy to allow oneself to be content in any circumstance, but this is the lesson of joy, acceptance and faith which divine love offers.

Let this be a day of building, of loving, and of remembering.

We leave you in the peace that is not of your illusion. We leave you in the peace of the love of Jesus the Christ, with all that that implies, both now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 92.34:

Questioner: I will just, then, attempt an example of the Potentiator of Mind acting. Would, as the infant gains time in incarnation, it experience the Potentiator offering both positive and negative potential acts (or thoughts, shall I say) for the Matrix to experience, which then begin to accumulate in the Matrix, and color it one way or the other in polarity depending upon its continuing choice of that polarity offered by the Potentiator? Is this in any way correct?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, again may we distinguish between the archetypical mind and the process of incarnational experience of the mind/body/spirit complex.

Secondly, each potentiation which has been reached for by the Matrix is recorded by the Matrix but experienced by the Significator.

The experience of the Significator of this potentiated activity is, of course, dependent upon the acuity of its processes of Catalyst and Experience.

May we ask if there are briefer queries before we leave this instrument?”

In this question Don is trying to figure out how the Potentiator of the Mind functions in the life pattern. He is assuming that the Potentiator will offer catalyst to the conscious mind, the Matrix of the Mind. Depending on how the conscious mind responds to this catalyst, further catalyst will be colored by these responses to cause the conscious mind to see catalyst as either positive or negative. Once again Ra needed to remind us that it is not the archetypical mind that lives the incarnation. Rather the archetypical mind is a kind of blueprint or owner’s manual to describe the nature of our evolution when we behave in one way or another as Ra mentioned in 91.37:

Questioner: So for an individual who wishes to consciously augment his own evolution, an ability to recognize and utilize the archetypes would be beneficial in sorting out that which he wished to seek and that which he found—and that which would be found then as not as efficient a seeking tool. Would this be a good statement?

Ra: I am Ra. This is a fairly adequate statement. The term “efficient” might also fruitfully be replaced by the term “undistorted.” The archetypical mind, when penetrated lucidly, is a blueprint of the builded structure of all energy expenditures and all seeking, without distortion. This, as a resource within the deep mind, is of great potential aid to the adept.

And in 93.14:

Questioner: Then the adept, in becoming familiar with the Logos’s archetype in each case, would then be able to most efficiently use the Logos’s plan for evolution. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. In the archetypical mind one has the resource of not specifically a plan for evolution, but rather a blueprint or architecture of the nature of evolution. This may seem to be a small distinction, but it has significance in perceiving more clearly the use of this resource of the deep mind.

Then Ra continues their answer by saying when the conscious mind reaches for what the unconscious mind has to offer, the activity which results is recorded in the Matrix, or conscious mind, as an experience that can be used for future actions. But this activity is experienced by the Significator according to the efficiency of the processing of catalyst into experience. Ra gave more insights in 79.42, concerning this relationship between the Matrix/consciousness, the Potentiator/unconscious, and the Significator/Hierophant:

Questioner: Then I will just ask for the one of the archetypes which I am least understanding at this point, if I can use that word at all. I am still very much in the dark, so to speak, with respect to the Hierophant and precisely what it is. Could you give me some other indication of what that is, please?

Ra: I am Ra. You have been most interested in the Significator which must needs become complex. The Hierophant is the original archetype of mind which has been made complex through the subtile movements of the conscious and unconscious. The complexities of mind were evolved rather than the simple melding of experience from Potentiator to Matrix.

The mind itself became an actor possessed of free will and, more especially, will. As the Significator of the Mind, the Hierophant has the will to know, but what shall it do with its knowledge, and for what reasons does it seek? The potential[s] of a complex Significator are manifold.

In summary, the catalyst is offered by the unconscious mind to the conscious mind. The conscious mind processes it until it becomes useable experience. This experience is stored in the conscious mind just as it has been experienced by the Significator.

This morning I went outside to get as much watering done as possible before the hottest part of this heat wave arrives this afternoon. I watered all the area around the fish pond with the sprinkler set on top of the framework over the pond. I also used watering buckets to water the Azaleas in the cross area and the Sun Patiens in the Sun Mandala behind the garage. In the afternoon I added another length of hose to the present hose and went into the back yard to water both the small Forsythia bushes on my south border and then the small Forsythia bushes on my north border. I finished my watering by watering the various deer resistant flowers along the parking area in the front of the house.

There was some good news regarding Dan D. Lion today, and that was that he peed twice, which means that his kidneys are working. I also took Dan D for a few walks this morning and afternoon so he could enjoy his favorite places to hang out for a while. He has been an indoor/outdoor cat for all of his life, so I know that he enjoys these times outside. I don’t let him out by himself anymore because cats who are at the end of their lives occasionally go off somewhere hidden to die and may be hard to find.

School Your Perceptions

Greetings in the consciousness of the love of Jesus the Christ. I am of the principle of that consciousness in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

My children, how I wish that my words were strong wings to bear you up into the cerulean sky of your dreams and ideals.

How I wish I could give you the gift of strong arms and backs to take up and find inspiration in those things which seem to weigh you down.

How I wish that my words were as the dawning of a morning, full of life and purpose, so that you could rejoice.

Yet all words are shadows that flee before the merciless actuality of the round and radiant light of your day. It is you, my children, who must give these gifts to yourself.

We offer you the strength of will to urge ideals and beauty into being. But it is only through your decision to accept these aids that you may school your perceptions to peace and joy.

The love of Christ be with you. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 92.33:

Questioner: The protection here seems to be depicted as being on the right-hand side but not the left. Would this indicate greater protection for the positive path than the negative?

Ra: I am Ra. You perceive correctly an inborn bias offering to the seeing eye and listing ear information concerning the choice of the more efficient polarity.

We would at this time, as you may call it, suggest one more full query.”

In the previous question we had determined that the mantle of the Potentiator of the Mind provided a protection for the positive path as Ra said: “To produce fruit is a protected activity.” Now Don follows up with the assumption that this mantle, being draped over the right shoulder of the High Priestess, would provide greater protection for the right hand path than for the left. Ra agrees that this is the case. Then Ra suggests that since the positive path has more protection than the negative path, that bias demonstrates that the positive path is the more efficient of the two paths. This would be expected as in 85.11, Ra suggests that the negative path is the “path of that which is not:”

 If you see the energy centers in their various colors completing the spectrum you may see that the service-to-self choice is one which denies the very center of the spectrum—that being universal love.

Therefore, all that is built upon the penetration of the light of harvestable quality by such entities is based upon an omission. This omission shall manifest in fourth density as the love of self; that is, the fullest expression of the orange and yellow energy centers which then are used to potentiate communication and adepthood.

When fifth-density refinement has been achieved, that which is not is carried further, the wisdom density being explored by entities which have no compassion, no universal love. They experience that which they wish by free choice, being of the earnest opinion that green-ray energy is folly.

That which is not may be seen as a self-imposed darkness in which harmony is turned into an eternal disharmony. However, that which is not cannot endure throughout the octave of third density, and, as darkness eventually calls the light, so does that which is not eventually call that which is.

The positive path is more efficient than the negative path because the positive path is the “path of that which is,” and that is unity and the use of the heart chakra. I believe that another contributing factor that aids the positive path is what Ra said in 90.20-.21 about the Logos having a “bias towards kindness”:

Questioner: Then built into the basis for the archetypes is, possibly, the mechanism for creating the polarization in consciousness for service to others and service to self. Is this, in fact, true?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes. You will notice the many inborn biases which hint to the possibility of one path’s being more efficient than the other. This was the design of the Logos.

Questioner: Then what you are saying is that once the path is recognized, either the positive or the negative polarized entity can find hints along his path as to the efficiency of that path. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. That which you say is correct upon its own merits but is not a repetition of our statement. Our suggestion was that within the experiential nexus of each entity, within its second-density environment and within the roots of mind, there were placed biases indicating to the watchful eye the more efficient of the two paths. Let us say, for want of a more precise adjective, that this Logos has a bias towards kindness.

The heat wave continued for a second day today, so I watered those areas which seemed most in need of water. This included the Moss Garden with the flowers in the middle, the Azalea garden in the cross area, the Wuthering Heights Mound, and small portion of the flowers along the parking area in the front yard.

I also have been keeping an eye on my cat, Dan D. Lion, as his kidney cancer seems to be causing him problems with dehydration, lack of ability to urinate, and he seems to have stopped eating. My vet suggested that I keep an eye on him for these next couple of days to see if his condition changes, and she further recommended that I accompany him when he goes outside so that I am with him if any further problems develop. His kidney cancer was diagnosed over a year and a half ago, and it is amazing that he has lived this long after this very aggressive cancer was detected.

The Happy Tune Of Silence

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

The busy hubbub of the crowded city is enfolded in silence. And in that silence is enfolded transformative power.

Now, within the meditation, that silence is greeted. And as the spirit listens, it becomes aware of the infinite color and variety of the flashing face of spirit.

Now is the time, in silence and in meditation, to embrace that seemingly angry hubbub of city and all that it implies of civilization’s distresses and discomforts.

Now is the time to realize a sense of the power of the silence so that, as you walk from meditation into daylight, your steps may not falter because of what you see or hear or sense. For you are the vehicle of eternity, and it is your choice to live in power or in oppression. Find the silence and raise high its endless, happy tune.

We leave you in peace, now and ever. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 92.31-.32:

Questioner: Were the grapes depicted upon the cloth covering the shoulder of the Priestess of Ra’s communication?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: We have taken those as indicating the fertility of the subconscious mind. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct, O student, but note ye the function of the mantle. There is great protection given by the very character of potentiation. To bear fruit is a protected activity.”

The robe, or mantle, that the High Priestess is wearing in Card #2 is covered with bunches of grapes, and Don asks Ra if these grapes were given by Ra, and if they suggest the fertility of the subconscious mind. Ra affirms the grapes were given by them, and that Don’s interpretation of their meaning as representing fertility is correct. In 99.8, Ra expanded upon the idea of the subconscious mind being fertile with spiritual resources:

The observation that to the left-hand path moves the roughly physical and to the right-hand path the mental has a shallow correctness. There are deeper observations to be made concerning the relationship of the great sea of the unconscious mind to the conscious mind which may fruitfully be pursued. Remember, O student, that these images are not literal. They haunt rather than explicate.

Many use the trunk and roots of mind as if that portion of mind were a badly used, prostituted entity. Then this entity gains from this great storehouse that which is rough, prostituted, and without great virtue. Those who turn to the deep mind seeing it in the guise of the maiden go forth to court it. The courtship has nothing of plunder in its semblance and may be protracted, yet the treasure gained by such careful courtship is great. The right-hand and left-hand transformations of the mind may be seen to differ by the attitude of the conscious mind towards its own resources as well as the resources of other-selves.

Ra then suggests that we note the function of the mantle itself. The mantle provides protection to the positive entity while it is polarizing in service to others. Ra calls this service, learning, and polarization process equivalent of “bearing fruit” and says that it is a protected activity. Ra said “There is great protection given by the very character of potentiation.” We never asked Ra what they meant by this statement, but I am guessing that since it is the subconscious mind that potentiates action within the conscious mind, it is a process that only involves the self. It is an internal process that produces growth, service, polarization, and progress along the spiritual path. It seems to make sense that such an internal process should be sacrosanct and immune to interference from outside of the self or to any negative entity’s influences. In 64.4, Ra used Carla’s love of attending her church as an example of the kind of protection that would “bear fruit” in service to the Creator:

Questioner: Thank you. Could you explain the basic principles behind the ritual which we perform to initiate the contact and what I would call the basic white magical rituals—principles of protection and other principles? Could you please do this?

Ra: I am Ra. Due to your avenue of question we perceive the appropriateness of inclusion of the cause of this instrument’s transitory vital-energy distortion. The cause is a bias towards the yearning for expression of devotion to the One Creator in group worship.

This entity was yearning for this protection both consciously in that it responds to the accoutrements of this expression, the ritual, the colors and their meanings as given by the distortion system of what you call the church, the song of praise, and the combined prayers of thanksgiving, and, most of all, that which may be seen to be most centrally magical: the intake of that food which is not of this dimension, but has been transmuted into metaphysical nourishment in what this distortion of expression calls the Holy Communion.

The subconscious reason, it being the stronger for this yearning, was the awareness that such expression is—when appreciated by an entity as the transmutation into the presence of the One Creator—a great protection of the entity as it moves in the path of service to others.

The principle behind any ritual of the white magical nature is to so configure the stimuli which reach down into the trunk of mind that this arrangement causes the generation of disciplined and purified emotion, or love, which then may be both protection and the key to the gateway to intelligent infinity.

This morning I began my watering of the yard early as the afternoon temperatures were forecast to be in the mid-90s. I watered the area around the fish pond by putting the sprinkler on top of the framework over the fish pond and letting it run for 45 minutes while I drove to my rheumatologist to have labs done. When I got back I watered the flowers along the parking area in front of the house with my watering wand. I also used the wand to water the flowers on the Wuthering Heights Mound in the front yard.

After lunch I continued to use the watering wand to water the Cone Flowers on the Ruins Mound in the side yard, the Yellow Creeping Jenny ground cover next to the Hidden Garden and the Hosta in the Hidden Garden. I also cleaned out the bird bath that was getting a little mossy-colored, and my last job of the day was to use my chain saw to saw up two middle-sized Black Walnut branches that fell back in Dana’s Crystal Corner.

Increasing Your Joy

Greetings in the love of Christ. We are of the consciousness of that love, the spirit of Christ in the vibration which comforts this child.

It is a characteristic of a life lived in faith that the quality of experience clarifies and improves when the faithful remind themselves continuously of the happy fidelity which has been chosen. Your Creator does not worship Itself. It turns in Its expression to a love of you.

You, then, may turn from the love of self also to express exultation in the excellence of love, of the love of the Creator and of the principles of love that you have been given for Teacher, Comforter and Friend. In sharing joy, so you increase that joy. In opening to give praise, so you shall receive clarity and peace.

That peace I leave with you, now and always. Amen.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 92.25:

Questioner: There seems to be a book on the Priestess’s lap which is half hidden by the robe or material that covers her right shoulder. It would seem that this indicates that knowledge is available if the veil is lifted, but is not only hidden by the veil, but hidden partially by her very garment which she must somehow move to become aware of the knowledge which she has available. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. In that the conceit of the volume was not originated by Ra we ask that you release the volume from its strictured form. Your perceptions are quite correct.

The very nature of the feminine principle of mind which, in Ra’s suggestion, was related specifically to what may be termed sanctified sexuality is, itself, without addition, the book which neither the feminine nor the male principle may use until the male principle has reached and penetrated, in a symbolically sexual fashion, the inner secrets of this feminine principle.

All robes, in this case indicating the outer garments of custom, shield these principles. Thusly there is great dynamic tension, if you will, betwixt the Matrix and the Potentiator of the Mind.”

Still on Card #2, Don asked Ra if the book in the High Priestess’s lap might represent hidden knowledge since her robe partially covers the book. Ra said that Don was correct even though the book was not of Ra’s creation, so we should remove it from the card. Then Ra went on to say that the secrets of the subconscious mind, which have to do with sanctified sexuality, can only be made available to the conscious and subconscious minds by the symbolically sexual penetration of the inner secrets of this feminine principle by the conscious mind, or the Magician. I am guessing that this symbolically sexual penetration of the “secrets of this feminine principle” would be represented by the conscious mind using meditation to go more deeply into its own subconscious/feminine mind to receive intuitive inspiration from the riches that are available there. I believe that the positively-oriented male actually engages in what could be called a courtship of the subconscious mind, and the negatively-oriented entity engages in a plunder of the subconscious mind, as Ra suggested in 99.8:

Let us now observe the evaluation of the two females. The observation that to the left-hand path moves the roughly physical and to the right-hand path the mental has a shallow correctness. There are deeper observations to be made concerning the relationship of the great sea of the unconscious mind to the conscious mind which may fruitfully be pursued. Remember, O student, that these images are not literal. They haunt rather than explicate.

Many use the trunk and roots of mind as if that portion of mind were a badly used, prostituted entity. Then this entity gains from this great storehouse that which is rough, prostituted, and without great virtue. Those who turn to the deep mind seeing it in the guise of the maiden go forth to court it. The courtship has nothing of plunder in its semblance and may be protracted, yet the treasure gained by such careful courtship is great. The right-hand and left-hand transformations of the mind may be seen to differ by the attitude of the conscious mind towards its own resources as well as the resources of other-selves.

In 92.20, Ra gave the general principle of this courtship of the High Priestess by the Magician, or the unconscious mind by the conscious mind:

Questioner: The Matrix of the Mind is depicted seemingly as male on the card and the Potentiator as female. Could Ra state why this is and how this affects these two archetypes?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, as we have said, the Matrix of the Mind is attracted to the biological male and the Potentiator of the Mind to the biological female. Thusly in energy transfer the female is able to potentiate that which may be within the conscious mind of the male so that it may feel enspirited.

In a more general sense, that which reaches may be seen as a male principle; that which awaits the reaching may be seen as a female principle.

The richness of the male and female system of polarity is interesting, and we would not comment further but suggest consideration by the student.

In 71.17, Ra gave a little information about “sanctified sexuality”:

The heart of white magic is the experience of the joy of union with the Creator. This joy will, of necessity, radiate throughout the life experience of the positive adept. It is for this reason that sexual magic is not restricted solely to the negatively oriented polarizing adepts, but, when most carefully used, has its place in high magic as it, when correctly pursued, joins body, mind, and spirit with the One Infinite Creator.

Any purpose which you may frame should, we suggest, take into consideration this basic union with the One Infinite Creator, for this union will result in service to others of necessity.

This was another Sabbath Day of Rest. I used most of the morning to answer emails from a friend who needs help in processing the passing into larger life of her sister. I made my usual errand run after lunch, stopping first at Feeder’s Supply to buy food for the kitties. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy food for myself. My last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I picked up more supplies for the house. In the afternoon I did some proactive watering of the recently planted flowers and shrubs all around the yard as the forecast for the upcoming week has the potential for record highs in the 90’s each day.

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

The Abiding Peace

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

I move to comfort you at this time by suggesting that you meditate upon the perfection of the abiding peace which lies beneath your actions, for there is great comfort available to you, as the in-breath which contains your spiritual food. Each time that you breathe in it is possible for you to become the living quality of Christ, for as breath is light to your bodies, so the same breath contains food for your spirit, a manna which your souls desire.

Breathe deeply, my children, of the love within each moment, and when you breathe out let your emanations express all of the best that you have to give.

And if you stumble, continue to breathe, for every breath is an opportunity to focus on love and to fill your life with that love.

Peace be with you, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.
