I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from March 29, 1987:

The effect of Christianity upon the movement of the planet into fourth density; whether it’s a helpful or hindering factor, or just how it works. About relationships—how does one determine whether there is still love enough or reason enough to remain with a partner; what is the real binding force of a relationship?

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator, the Creator whose love abides before, after and beyond all created things, and whose light forms all created things. I greet you, my friends, in the reality expressed in symbols of illusion. I speak to you as one who lives to those who walk in sleep, and in this mysterious way we explore together the mystery of love, light and reality, we who are creatures, never having seen all of reality, we who are finite, gazing at infinity.

And yet, we journey onward from realization to realization, ever finding the face of mystery to be that of Love, reflected in the smile of those who show the Creator’s Love to us or speak the inspired word which comes through them to us. And we thank you that you have called us to speak with you this evening about the greatest single catalyst which involves those of third density in their seeking for spiritual evolution.

Relationships are the heart of your question, for the one query concerns when relationships betwixt two entities are helpful and when they are not, and the other query involves when Christianity is an helpful relationship for seekers to commit themselves to or not. Yet are not both queries concerning relationships?

And so we would speak upon the illness and health of relationships, not covering this deep subject, but perhaps provoking some further thought. If we are able to do this, we shall be extraordinarily gratified, for we are clumsy with your language and are grateful to vocal channels such as this one, that we may at least attempt to clothe our poor concepts with some semblance of grace.

It is written in your holy works that the master known as Jesus was once asked as to the purpose or the cause of a blind man’s infirmity. The crowd wished to place blame upon one side or another of a relationship within a family. Was it the blind man’s family’s fault, or was it the fault of the blind man?

The teacher known to you as Jesus answered the query in a way which often has been misunderstood as an avoidance of the question. The master said, “For neither reason was this man blind, and blame belongs to none, but rather it was a design whereby the Creator would be glorified.”

When two entities become mated, the landscape seems beautiful, prospects seem unlimited in the richness, value and joyfulness of experience to come, and all of life may seem as pleasant as the day which each in this group has experienced, the golden sun bringing ever more fullness to the celery green of young leaves, the cheerful forsythia and daffodil greeting the spring breeze, the spring of new grass and soft rain, the sound of bird calls and happy children at play.

When one forms an alliance with any religion, there is a mating betwixt an entity and the face of the Creator, the nature of the mystery, which the entity believes that that particular path shall best show to him or her. And so the individual’s relationship with an individual or the individual’s relationship with a societal entity which seeks the truth begins. An honeymoon ensues, wherein all that is good is shared freely without thought for the self, for one has been taken beyond the self in some realization of the Creator’s face in the other individual or in the path which is offered by the spiritual organization.

Q’uo took the two questions about whether Christianity is helpful for planet Earth to move into the fourth density and what is the binding force of a relationship and combined them into one question concerning relationships in general since they are the greatest catalyst for spiritual evolution that we have in the third density. Q’uo began with the story of a blind man in relationship to his family.  Jesus was asked if a blind man’s being blind was his family’s fault or his fault. Jesus said that it was neither’s fault but an opportunity that the Creator be glorified as Jesus then healed the blind man according to John 9:1-12. Q’uo went on to describe the beauty of the relationship between two entities being mated and how the life is enhanced where all of nature moves in rhythm with the mating. Then Q’uo expanded the nature of relationships to that of the entity joining a religion where the face of the Creator may be experienced by any individual within that spiritual organization or in the path of any individual on its own. On July 7, 1980, Latwii gave a general description of the value of relationships:

There is an infinity of individualized persons of the one Consciousness. Each individualized person of the one Consciousness is placed by free will into this particular illusion to learn certain lessons. These have to do with love, the understanding of love, and with giving of love by dwelling in service with others. There are some people who cannot learn alone, for they do not have the keys to wisdom, and thus they must study the ways of love. There are some who do not have the keys to love, but must dwell alone and study the ways of wisdom. Love and wisdom are the two poles.

Perhaps we might say that the most balanced of the ways of learning is to find in a relationship both the companionship that enables two individuals to be of service to each other, and the understanding that enables each to be, along with his or her needs for wisdom, for aloneness, for meditation, or for whatever he or she needs that the other cannot give.

No two individuals are created alike, so there is no one answer to your question. Not all are made to be mated, nor are all made to dwell along the lonely paths of the one who walks alone. There are many shades of learning, of love, and of wisdom. You may take your choice. You will find, in a mated relationship, the most powerful means of balancing your own nature, so that the love and the wisdom become balanced, for truly it is only when this occurs that you can become what you would call a master.

But in most cases, one person does not become a master, but two, helping each other. This you have already intuited, and yet you wonder at your need to be alone, and at the fate which seems to ask you to be alone. Relax, for all is well. The creation gives you what you need. And when you have absorbed what you need, from this one environment, there will be a powerful attraction to the next phase of your learning, and you will not have to seek it out by thought and analysis, for it shall, as this instrument would say, “hit you between the eyes.” For that is the way of the Creator. If you can be patient, your way will always be made quite, quite clear.

It is easy to presume that relationships betwixt people and relationships betwixt people and organizations are different, and from detail to detail, this may indeed be so. But perhaps it is helpful to realize that in any relationship which a seeker has with anyone or anything, the fundamental dynamic in the relationship as concerns this entity is the entity itself. It is inevitable, just as fall and winter follow spring and summer, that two people shall finish their honeymoon and embark upon some challenge together—or apart. It is inevitable in any spiritual search within an orthodox religious path that the seeker shall find doubts so overwhelming that trouble clouds its relationship with the spiritual organization.

In both cases, the unfortunate actions which are catalyst for the seeker by an entity or an organization or entities within an organization shall be blamed for difficulty which is experienced by the seeker, and the attention is then turned outward in an attempt to find a way to repair, mend or replace the ailing relationship.

There are many options which the seeker may choose when attempting to assess right action within a painful set of circumstances which involve disillusionment at a relationship. Many of your peoples automatically choose to avoid pain, and by doing this they move into another arena, and inevitably seek other relationships with entities or organizations which will inevitably disillusion them once again, for it is the nature of the illusion in which you experience life at this time that all things shall pass, all successes shall fail, all days shall become night and all joy sorrow. It is equally inevitable that all sad things shall be made glad and all night end in dawn and sunlight.

Now Q’uo addresses the relationships between individuals and between individuals and religious organizations after the beginning honeymoon period is over and there are doubts and difficulties that cause pain and suffering. When this occurs then there is an effort made to find a solution to the problems which in many cases involves attempts to avoid the pain by moving into other relationships with different individuals or different organizations. However, Q’uo suggested that it is likely that the same problems will reappear, and as time moves on the successes will become failures, the sorrows will become joy, as day moves into night. On November 13, 2010, Q’uo described the value in having lessons repeat:

It is not a punishment to have lessons repeat. They do not truly repeat, for you are spiraling ever onward and upward in your learning, and when the lessons come to you again, you are in a different place. You have peeled away a layer or two of the onion skin of personality, enculturation and mindlessness and you meet the repeating catalyst from a new perspective every time.

Never think that there is a judgmental Creator behind the difficulties of your life. Know that the patterns of difficulty in your life are gifts. They may seem hard to open. They may not feel blessed, but they are. They are precious. We have often talked about life in third density, and indeed life in general for those of us in other densities as well, as taking place in a refining oven.

Another option available to the seeker in a difficult relationship is doggedly to endure without analysis or thought, trusting that the night shall become day, the pain shall become gladness.

The third area of options is perhaps the more fruitful of the three we offer you for thought, and that is the withdrawal from decision-making and from the company of the relationship which has caused confusion for a period of personal, intimate and extremely private contemplation and meditation.

For you see, the conscious self of the seeker sees the relationship for the first time as it reacts to the catalyst which has been prepared before the incarnation by the self and all those parts of the higher self which become ultimately the complete expression of love of the one Creator. All good and all difficult things, alike, have been offered to you by yourself, not either to endure or to avoid, but to learn from, to study, to ponder, to reflect upon and, finally, to make choices on the basis of what has come to you in the process of seeking.

This cannot be done while the catalyst is present and you are busy reacting to the catalyst, thus gaining experience but not being free to evaluate experience. There is no time when meditation is not extraordinarily helpful, but when one wishes to know where the kingdom which you seek lies, where love lies, where right action lies in a difficult situation, it is well to go deep within in faith and trust that there is a sense of right action within you, given before time and space began, purified and clarified by dedication to seeking and continuation of meditation, so that the seeker becomes more and more profoundly aware of when the still, small voice, as this instrument would say, might cause the feeling of right action to surface.

The most difficult thing for the seeker who lives within the dream and gazes hopefully towards reality to do is to wait, to wait for clarity to come. Clarity can come from within, yet not from without. Inspiration can cause one to think more deeply or with more faith, or perhaps have the will to work harder to evaluate experience, but no outside influence can truly aid spiritual choices, for only free will choices of the individual move one forward in spiritual evolution.

What you call church and what you call the mated relationship are equal partners in preparing the student of truth for more and more realization of where that truth might be and where it might not be. Personal and church related relationships equally are either helpful in preparing one for the fourth-density experience, or directly harmful in keeping one from being ready for the great challenge of more light, more love, a finer vision of reality, and a greater responsibility for manifesting it in the life experience.

Q’uo then made a second suggestion as to how one can deal with a difficult relationship, and that is to accept it as it is and hope it will get better as time moves on.  Then Q’uo quickly moved on to a third option describing it as retiring in meditation and contemplation and by so doing discovering those lessons that we and our higher selves have programmed before our incarnations that may be of a challenging nature that will eventually produce an expression of the love of the Creator. Q’uo said the difficult part of this process is to have the patience that clarity will reveal itself to us from within us and not from without. Whether we are in a mated relationship or a church relationship we may find either to be helpful or harmful in our attempt at achieving the greater love and light of the fourth density graduation. On July 1, 1990, Q’uo described what we can learn from challenging lessons:

You yourself are not either a good person or a bad person. You are, if you can consider good and bad as the full circle of being, a 360 degree being. It is by your choices that you define who you are and where your loyalties, where your choices and your faith will lie. And as you move further and further, building choice upon choice and polarizing toward service to others in the name of the one infinite Creator, as you become more and more a transparent channel for the love and the light of the infinite One, you create your life, you do not react to it, for the reactions are automatically those of one who seeks to help.

Let us separate our subjects for a moment, for perhaps some of the differences cause the two who have these questions to be dissatisfied with this generalization.

The Christian’s vision of Christianity is not one vision, any more than the Buddhist vision, the Shintoist vision, and so forth, is unified. Although each entity which calls itself Christian, for instance, believes because it has spoken a certain symbol it is a member of a great group, nevertheless, each individual is doing no more and no less than seeking the face of the great mystery of the infinite Creator, just as each non-church-going entity does or does not do. How many Christians there are who have no interest whatsoever in seeking the truth, but are responding to stimulus much in the same way that a second-density animal which moves with the pack follows the leader of the pack, and behaves as does his group. There are the most extravagant extremes, from what Christians call sainthood to what Christians call great evil, within that great body of entities called Christianity.

The one known as Jesus knew that the third-density experience was coming to an end, and hoped not only for a few to learn of forgiveness and redemption but for all to know the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. The creature which has grown up from this teacher’s body of instruction bears almost no resemblance, and certainly no ideological resemblance, to the nature of the community of those who love each other, which the teacher known as Jesus the Christ wished to form.

Indeed, the one known as Jesus sought only to form a fourth-density experience at the ending of third density, and so is the spirit of those who wed or are mated in commitment intended to bring one more and more to the love that sacrifices all, to the caring which owns forgiveness and disowns any negative omission, wishing only happiness for the other self which has become the most loved self, the object upon which all virtue may be spent. In neither case can any two experiences be described together. Where then, in any situation of relationship, does the decision alight but with the entity who seeks the face of mystery for itself.

Q’uo continued by suggesting that both Christians and non-Christians may or may not be seekers of truth and of the love of the one Creator. Then Q’uo said that Jesus knew the end of third density was near and incarnated so that each seeker might be able to learn forgiveness and redemption and be able to share the love of the Creator with the mates and with all others. In this way the fourth density could become the reality of the one who seeks the “face of mystery.” On January 18, 1989, Laitos spoke of the value of forgiveness:

Until there is forgiveness and redemption within the knowledge of the heart, not only of the mind, then may you tune upwards, seeking ever higher for a more beautiful, lovely and perfect ideal, a more clarified and fine version of love divine. What do you seek? How much do you want to know? Sharpen and hone your desire, for it has been written truly in the work you call your Holy Bible, “Seek and ye shall find; ask and it shall be given to you.”

We ask those who ponder a choice to have infinite patience, if possible, and in order to have the patience to wait long enough for inner certainty, it may be necessary to seek solitude, time and space apart from that which puzzles and confuses one. There are no good or bad choices in terms of finding what Jesus the Christ called the Glory of God. There are many less efficient choices available to the entity which cannot wait long enough to receive that inner certainty, which shall be his or hers at some point when the waiting, the seeking, the praying for understanding has been fully accomplished.

If there is waiting and no hearing until one leaves the physical body, that too is acceptable, for the only element which polarizes an entity towards the love and the light of the infinite Creator in service to others is the simple and fastidious determination to await a knowledge of the higher will of the higher self, a knowledge of where and how glory and love shall enter the experience. Anything can be endured, if it be endured in certainty of the rightness of one’s actions. Very little can be endured if the entity feels that enduring such is harmful for one’s spirit.

The least helpful element of the mind, body and spirit during these times is the intellectual mind, for filled with reactions and emotions it cannot control, in situations too intense to easily and comfortably tolerate, the entity must seek avoidance, and that which must be done is usually done in such a way that much of the richness of the experience is jumbled, confused and lost.

Q’uo recommended patience and determination when attempting to discover one’s inner direction that will lead to the best way to shine the love and the light of the one Creator in service to others. They suggested that time was not a factor, even if such a discovery of the inner direction needed to wait until another incarnation. Q’uo also said that we should take care not to rely on the intellectual mind as it tends to seek avoidance of situations that it cannot control. On July 3, 1989, Quo recommended perseverance and dedication to find greater opportunities for spiritual growth:

We do not mean to, shall we say, dodge the query, but mean to express the nature of the flexibility that the seeker has at its disposal for preparing to open the inner eye to a field of vision and experience which is not available to the entity without much preparation within the meditative state. Thus, we recommend experimentation, choice, dedication, perseverance and, as the theme of this meditation has been, the ability to remain open to new ideas and possibilities. Thus, the seeker shall find that the experience is one which will offer itself—that is, the seeker—the continuing possibility for growth. There is much within each seeker which remains hidden and which through the perseverance and dedication to regularity will be revealed as the seeker [is] ready.

Those who are Christian and those who are mated have a great deal in common, in that both the mated relationship and the spiritual mated relationship of the brothers and sisters of any religion expect and hope for each other that each will be a mirror to each, telling the truth, yet telling it with compassion, supporting while criticizing, constructing while changing.

When relationships are not such, it is time to await the consciousness within, for we can to the best of our limited knowledge assure you that wisdom comes to those who wait, in the watches of the night and in the noontime alike, for night and day alike have their lessons and realization shall come when least expected. May your ears be ready to hear and your eyes ready to see the harbingers of right action for you yourself, and may you never, never consider it the responsibility of another to have any part in the creation of a life lived towards spiritual evolution.

We feel in the silence about us the many thoughts of those who wonder why there cannot be said to be a preference, at least for harmony, betwixt peoples, and a looking forward together to the new age of understanding and love. May each experience such lovely pleasures and may each rejoice in those seasons when such occurs, yet when an individual’s love seems to fail one, when one’s religion or path seems to fail one, it is time to trust the desert experience of deprivation and want, pain and sadness, loss and disillusionment, not taking them as realities, but as illusion, just as the peaceful and contented times are illusions.

Q’uo said that both in a mated relationship and those of the Christian family may be able to aid each other on traveling the spiritual path in the highest and best way. But Q’uo said that it was also possible that there are times when one’s love or religious path seems to fail one, and one experiences pain and disillusionment and needs to endure the desert experience as an illusion. On March 27, 1991, Q’uo spoke of the desert experience as one which can also lead to finding truth:

In the desert, in the silence, one meets the self in all of its aspects. Yet it is in this desert and in this experience of the self that has both its light and its shadowed sides that the self learns finally to accept all of the self and thereby learns a compassion that cannot be learned in any other way. For when one sees oneself to be so far from what it wishes to be it is humbled with a good humility, a humility that realizes that within this density it is impossible not to err and be deceived repeatedly.

If each entity, whether seeking in relationship with another entity or with a societal religious group, could learn as intensively and carefully in each pleasant moment as it learns when faced with painful challenges, challenges would not have to be built into the life experience. But contentment and happiness seem to dull the powers of spiritual observation. Sharpen your ears, your eyes and your heart, my friends, in good times, and diminish painful experience. Yet when painful experience comes to you, seek to know in faith and will to remember that the desert experience shall give way once again to the experience of plenty and peace.

Therefore, seek during this period not to act in this way or in that, but to remain a listening, watchful, prayerful entity, open first to the voice of the Creator within, and only secondly to these things about one which demand the reaction, the emotion, the manifestation. Create your manifestations insofar as it comes naturally to you in any situation, and know well within yourself when you have not created, but have reacted.

You shall achieve the fourth-density level when your criticisms are only of yourself, your actions are taken because within you feel them to be so and right for you alone, and when the opinion of others is nothing more than interesting.

Q’uo reminded us that it is in the challenging times that we learn the most and suggested that we might be able to grow the most when we listen to the Creator when we face these challenges and act in according to how we feel guided from within to create our actions. They said we could achieve the fourth density when our criticisms are only of ourselves. In 49.8, Ra explained the value of listening to the Creator:

The passive meditation involving the clearing of the mind—the emptying of the mental jumble which is characteristic of mind complex activity among your peoples—is efficacious for those whose goal is to achieve an inner silence as a base from which to listen to the Creator. This is an useful and helpful tool, and is, by far, the most generally useful type of meditation as opposed to contemplation or prayer.

To sum, we may say that no outside element, including the most powerful group upon your planetary sphere, has power over you unless you as an entity react in a way you would not. Thus, seek always to know yourself more and more, to be yourself more and more, and to experience the glory of existence and consciousness with gratitude, only secondarily wondering what to do next, where to go next, and so forth. May your will, your faith, your love, and your attention be focused in the silence within, that when you act you shall know it to be right, and you shall be at peace regardless of church, family or friend.

We feel constrained to speak through this instrument in a special way, for there is a need for us to offer a special message and the message is as follows:

There are moments which may last for some time or may be transient, which many upon your planetary sphere which have studied the metaphysics, as this instrument [would] call it, would call initiation. There are some whose spirits have not completely married the earthly personality, and during these times of initiation, the experience of living seems extraordinarily difficult…

In this last paragraph Q’uo seems to be talking about wanderers. In 12.30, Ra described the difficulties of wanderers:

 Questioner: [I just had a] thought. Do any of these Wanderers have physical ailments in this Earth situation?

Ra: I am Ra. Due to the extreme variance between the vibratory distortions of third density and those of the more dense densities, if you will, Wanderers have as a general rule some form of handicap, difficulty, or feeling of alienation which is severe. The most common of these difficulties are alienation, the reaction against the planetary vibration by personality disorders, as you would call them, and body complex ailments indicating difficulty in adjustment to the planetary vibrations such as allergies, as you would call them.

We would at this time pause and retune, if the circle will be so kind, and then transfer to the one known as Jim. I am Q’uo.

This morning I ran some errands with my first stop being at Feeder’s Supply where I bought some bird seed and cat food. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market where I bought some food for myself. My third stop was at Porter’s Paints where I bought more paint for painting various outside areas of my home. My fourth stop was at the Post Office where I mailed a birthday card to a friend. At 10 am I was on a podcast with a group called MT  Performance. They generally work with helping people achieve physical fitness and also provide methods of dealing with body problems, but they also have spiritual paths that they like to share with their viewers. I enjoyed their questions about the Law of One and about the channeling process.

This afternoon I finished the painting of the concrete foundation of the house

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

September 18

The Wonder Of Creation

I am the spirit of the living God and I greet you in the full consciousness of that love which is the love of Jesus Christ.

We ask today that your eyes be transformed, that you may gaze in wonder at the majesty of creation.

Hold your hand before your face. Is it not wonderful? By simple thought flex each finger. See the movements. Do not understand them. But gaze in wonder. Touch thumb to finger and reflect upon the excellence of these tools given by the infinite and glorious Creator to those images of Itself that It sends into the world of manifestation.

Look further up into the sky, around the countryside and, most of all, at the excellence of yourself. And be thankful that the Lord has given to His people not only love and the consciousness of love but a way to manifest and encourage that love to grow and bear fruit.

We leave you in awe, wonder 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 March 15, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each of you again in love and light. At this time it is our privilege to offer ourselves in the attempt to speak to any queries which those present may have for us. Again we remind each of our fallibility and our desire to serve by offering that which is our opinion and that which we have found useful upon our own journey of seeking. With that understanding, may we begin with a query?

Carla: Yes. What did you mean when you called me a yokel?

I am Q’uo, and, my sister, we were attempting to blend our vibrations with yours in a manner which loosened your own, and in this attempt we found this term to be helpful in describing the pure and simple manner of your being which allows us to speak through it, and we meant to imply that this was a happy country comfort, shall we say, that which could be said to be something of the yokel.

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: No, I just wondered. It threw me. I must have challenged you ten times, I couldn’t imagine why you said, “I have to go talk to the yokel.” [Giggles.] Who were you talking to?

I am Q’uo, and we thank you for your query, which we find humorous as well, for we were speaking of your instrument in this case.

I am assuming that at the beginning of this session Carla had to challenge Q’uo ten times to be sure it was Q’uo, and, for some reason, then Q’uo said “I have to go talk to the yokel,” and they were talking about Carla. That is a rather offbeat way of exercising humor, but it certainly did make Carla laugh.

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you.

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

G: What do we look like to you from your point of view? Could you describe us?

I am Q’uo, and, my brother, this query we feel is best answered by suggesting that we perceive you with more than the physical optical apparatus and to describe our perception of your vibration is best accomplished, we feel, by suggesting that that which is of importance in your journey of seeking, that which you are and that which you draw unto you, we perceive as a vibration, a note, if you will, that identifies a quality of being that vibrates in resonance with a greater or lesser portion of the environment or the creation about one. Thus, we see and feel and hear and sense your beingness.

G. asked Q’uo what the people in the meditation meeting looked like from Q’uo’s point of view. Q’uo responded by saying that they saw each person as a vibration or a musical note that represented the nature of their spiritual seeking, that which each was and that which they drew to them. They sensed our beingness. On November 17, 2018, Q’uo gave a general description of our beingness as seekers of truth:

Thus, the praise and thanksgiving for all things is that which is most appropriate for each seeker of truth to utilize whenever possible. All that you experience in your life, all that you experience within any incarnation, is a gift given by the One Creator to the One Creator residing in you. If you can see your life experience within this framework of the infinity of beingness that has formed you, and the infinity of beingness that is within you, and the infinity of beingness that draws you forward, you shall move forward with solid and stately steps of realization and experience that has been gained through the moving into the unknown areas with that praise and thanksgiving that brings forth light and love to illumine your journey.

May we speak further, my brother?

G: Well, nothing more specific than how you perceive my beingness?

I am Q’uo, and we perceive you, my brother, as one note among many.

May we speak further?

G: Do you like the note that you hear?

I am Q’uo, and we find great joy in perceiving this note that represents your beingness and take double joy, shall we say, in discovering it to be another part of our own being and of the one Creator as well.

May we speak further, my brother?

G: No, I enjoyed that. Thank you.

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

G: I don’t know if this is appropriate, but I was wondering if you had any insight into what lessons might be involved for me in having the seasonal sensitivities to pollen? This is for curiosity. I thought maybe there might be something interesting there for me to look at.

I am Q’uo, and may not speak in specifics in this instance, my brother, for, indeed, that which is of value in this query is that which has the greatest value when discovered through your own efforts, and we would not take that from you, but may speak in a general sense to suggest that if the experience of the allergy or any physical distortion leaves the impact of importance upon one’s analytical and emotional sensing complexes, that that distortion then be looked upon as a symbol or direction indicator that may be pondered in meditation and in contemplation for any further image that may follow the original focus, and if the sense of value or importance continues, then the following of the images that present themselves to the conscious mind may then lead one to a less distorted image of the treasure which waits within.

May we speak further, my brother?

G: Yeah. It would be nice to have it rephrased in a little bit more specific way. I was thinking about it this morning when I was walking on a path in the woods and I was smelling various smells and really enjoying the experience. And we stopped because I smelled a smell that smelled like honeysuckle. And so I went over and I found where the scent was coming from and I really enjoyed that. It was like finding a real neat discovery. And then we walked down the path a little way and I started sneezing. Could you maybe rephrase, using some of that, not specifically for me, but just using that kind of example or something so I can get it in my mind what you’re saying a little more clearly?

I am Q’uo, and it was our desire to suggest that the enjoyment of the scent of the flower, as well as the response of the allergic reaction in this instance, if they can be said to have value or importance in one’s spiritual journey, this experience will repeat itself in a fashion which is able to catch the attention, and the attention, then, over a period of time, will focus in contemplation, and, if able, in meditation, so that the sense of the value of the experience may be discovered in image which then points a direction with inspiration and enlarging of the point of viewing, so that the heart of what is available to one through such experience might be approached ever closer.

G asked if there was some spiritual lesson associated with his seasonal allergy to pollen. And in his second question on this topic he mentioned an allergic reaction of sneezing after smelling the honeysuckle vine. Q’uo said that they could not speak specifically because that would infringe on G’s free will, so they would need to be general. Q’uo suggested that if one’s experience of an allergy makes an impact on one’s mental or emotional senses then it may be an indication of the direction one may proceed. Q’uo recommended pondering such images or directions in meditation or contemplation for more hints as to the directions that would be helpful to follow. In 12.30, Ra gave a general description of how wanderers may express the feeling of alienation to this planet that might manifest as allergies:

Questioner: I just had a thought. Do any of these wanderers have physical ailments in this earth situation?

I am Ra. Due to the extreme variance between the vibratory distortions of third density and those of the more dense densities, if you will, wanderers have, as a general rule, some form of handicap, difficulty, or feeling of alienation which is severe. The most common of these difficulties are alienation, the reaction against the planetary vibration by personality disorders, as you would call them, and body complex ailments indicating difficulty in adjustment to the planetary vibrations such as allergies, as you would call them.

So it may be that Q’uo wanted G to discover his nature as a wanderer on his own through meditation and contemplation.

May we speak further, my brother?

G: No, I like what you said. [Inaudible]. Thank you.

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

G: Do you like our music that we had this evening? [“The Green Cathedral,” duet, a capella.] Do you like New Age music? Do you have any preference between them?

I am Q’uo, and we find that the expressions known to your peoples as music each contain a delicate and unique portion of the one Creator which we experience more likened unto a symphony of sound and vibration, and each note of your experience excites that portion of our being which we share with you.

May we speak further, my brother?

G: I’ll tell you, the way you’re talking, I feel as though I limit myself tremendously, and yet you seem to take a tremendous pleasure and joy in so many aspects of how you perceive us and all of our world. It’s really amazing.

I am Q’uo, and, indeed, we are in awe with you at the magnificence of each and all.

Is there another query at this time?

Carla: We thank you, Q’uo.

I am Q’uo, and it has been our great privilege to share our humble thoughts with this group this evening. We look forward, as you would put it, to all such events, and cannot thank each enough for allowing us this honor. We are known to you as those of Q’uo, and we leave each in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I painted the area above the basement door and below the windows on the back deck with white paint, the same paint I used on the garage last week.

This afternoon I went back outside and scraped the cement below the bricks all around the house. The front is about two feet tall, and the back is about three feet tall. I was scraping chipped paint and the residue of dead English ivy that I pulled off the house a few years ago. Then I painted the cement in front of the house and half the way down the north side of the house before I ran out of paint. I will get some more paint tomorrow to finish this job and then begin another project painting the wood around the windows on the back deck.

God’s Active Voice

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

My voice is a cry upon the wind heard by the heart and spoken through lips such as those who shape these words. Yet my nature is inseparable from the great Creator and preserver of all life. Thus beneath our words is the energy of life, the constant apprehension of unity.

We are God’s active voice in the world of physical incarnation. We are that great stock of inspiration and imagination from which any soul may draw. We are the living water of the consciousness of love. And we come to you as you will and as you ask and sometimes as an angel unawares do we appear.

May you seek to live more fully this day, calling upon and resting in the vivifying energy of love. In peace we leave you, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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


I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from March 15, 1987:

How does consciousness group itself? Do we have conscious or spiritual families that we incarnate with? How do these groupings of consciousness express themselves? How do we discover them?

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo, and I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We have greatly enjoyed sharing meditation with you and would speak with you this evening, as it has been our privilege to be called to you. We ask you, as always, to be aware of our fallibility and to realize that we are but fellow pilgrims, reaching a hand back to those a few steps behind us on the trail, and in no wise to be considered without error. We hope we may help, of course, and it is our privilege to be asked to do so.

We talk to you this evening about families, for you have asked what the nature of the spiritual family is and on what pattern we are, as entities, grouped throughout the planetary influence and throughout the infinite creation.

The concept of spiritual family is one which is difficult to address in a clear manner, because the perceived spiritual family or apparent spiritual family is by far more important to any entity within incarnation than the actual spiritual family in the absolute sense.

Therefore, as in many things pertaining to the greater understanding of things pertaining to incarnational experience, the best tools for working upon incarnational experience are forged within the experience, and pragmatism is found to be useful as a tool of thought.

The perceived spiritual family is all-important, for it is through what one is capable of perceiving as spiritually akin to one that one hopes to be able to enlarge one’s understanding of the feelings and experiences which fill the cup of spiritual communion. The pilgrim hopes always to learn more and more about the spiritual nature of all things, and to redefine relationships along more freely flowing and spiritually encompassing lines.

However, it is the rare pilgrim in third density who is perceiving the absolute spiritual family. Indeed, all third-density entities begin with the harvest of second density, the spiritual family of one other entity, and the offspring of that entity. This spiritual family is the instinctual parent of relationships and the archetypical one of your physical vehicle, thus influencing much of the thinking within your species. It is to be greatly appreciated as the rich fount of catalyst it is.

The group question for this session was whether we have spiritual families in the third density, and how do we recognize them. Q’uo began their response by saying that the family that we perceive as our birth family is not our true spiritual family. What third density “pilgrims”experience is the relationships with others that evolve over shared time together with the hope of finding shared spiritual values. I believe that Q’uo may be speaking here of conscious seekers of truth or perhaps wanderers. However, Q’uo went on to say that all third density entities have evolved from the second density beings with the parents producing the offspring and forming the archetypical bodies of our species that now may produce catalyst for growth. In 90.12, Ra revealed the nature of our archetypical bodies:

Questioner: Was there a reason for choosing the forms that have evolved upon this planet and, if so, what was it?

Ra: I am Ra. We are not entirely sure why our Logos and several neighboring Logoi of approximately the same space/time of flowering chose the bipedal, erect form of the second-density apes to invest. It has been our supposition, which we share with you as long as you are aware that this is mere opinion, that our Logos was interested in, shall we say, further intensifying the veiling process by offering to the third-density form the near complete probability for the development of speech taking complete precedence over concept communication or telepathy. We also have the supposition that the so-called opposable thumb was looked upon as an excellent means of intensifying the veiling process so that rather than rediscovering the powers of the mind the third-density entity would, by the form of its physical manifestation, be drawn to the making, holding, and using of physical tools.

And in 13.21, Ra gave the general nature of the expansion of consciousness in this movement from the second density to the third density:

Questioner: Then how does the second density progress to the third?

Ra: I am Ra. The second density strives towards the third density which is the density of self-consciousness or self-awareness. The striving takes place through the higher second-density forms who are invested by third-density beings with an identity to the extent that they become self-aware mind/body complexes, thus becoming mind/body/spirit complexes and entering third density, the first density of consciousness of spirit.

In much of third density, the true spiritual family is greatly limited due to the perceived spiritual family’s being the biological family. Because the long trail of incarnations forms patterns of association throughout thousands of your years, there began to grow in your species’ present density experience the network of larger spiritual families, and, indeed, society as you know it today is a vast honeycomb of those whose memory, could they but see it, includes each other in vast and interlocking networks.

At this level of networking, the spiritual family is perceived through a feeling rather than through intellectual thought, and one experiences what this instrument would call the feeling of “birds of a feather flock together,” the feeling of comfortable association with those whose thinking seems comfortably fitting with your own. This is a further substantial step in the perceived spiritual family.

Then Q’uo expanded the nature of the spiritual family as the result of a progression through thousands years of networking with entities of like mind who may be forming spiritual families throughout many incarnations. Q’uo also mentioned that the perceiving of entities to be part of this network of spiritual families is something that is discovered through feelings of familiarity rather than by intellectual thought. On August 22, 2004, Q’uo described the nature of these spiritual families that incarnate together:

It is obvious that in the physical illusion each is separate. And yet you have, common to this incarnation, families, not nuclear or physical families alone, but spiritual families, larger groups of entities than you might suspect, who have chosen to come into incarnation to work in tandem with those whom they meet and with whom they seem to feel kinship and affinity and much more than that. With the extended families of each of you, who in many cases share relatives, shall we say, on the unseen planes, you are connected in so many ways which you cannot see but can only feel. So know that, as you look into the eyes of those whom you have not yet touched into in terms of energy, with whom you have not exchanged energy, yet you do not look into the eyes of strangers. For beneath the surface of this seeming separateness of the physicality, you are strongly and powerfully connected by those families from which you came and to which you shall return.

One who perceives these networks of kinship has managed to begin the linking of all the species. Indeed, perhaps it has become obvious by now that we suggest that the spiritual family which may perhaps most come at the start and root of all other concerns for family, is the family of humankind which will attempt in fourth density upon this sphere to form a fourth-density positive social memory complex. Each connection made lovingly and freely, being manifested, draws closer to an entity the realizations of honest kinship which can only be felt by first extending kinship.

The leap of faith, as this instrument has it in her mind, is always necessary, for any transformation of thought is preceded by a desire to know, which precipitates the use of will at some point. Change is painful, and one who seeks to know his spiritual family shall endure the pain of each family member’s miseries, for it is so that all who are conscious of the self suffer.

In suffering, much is learned. In dying, life is gained. In each resurrection, improvement is taking place. Yet, these things are not clear when one sees the hungry, the imprisoned, the sad, the fearful, and the alone. If a pilgrim wishes to know its true spiritual family, walk all the streets, deserts, jungles and battlefields of your sphere, and know that there is no spirit which breathes within physical manifestation that is not your own self—part of you, part of creation, part of the only heaven that is thinkable, the heavenly kingdom of wholeness and completeness, the one infinite jewel of existence.

There is one original Thought, one Creator, and one Creation. When you have become—and you will—a fourth-density social memory complex, you will begin to learn further lessons, lessons that if you only were clear enough, your bodies could teach you now, lessons of your true kinship in unity, not only with every atom of living energy in the infinite creation, but through thought with the one great original Thought, so that more and more consciousness becomes that of the Creator as well as the created.

Now Q’uo expanded the concept of the spiritual family to that of the family of humankind on Earth that is seeking to become a social memory complex. However, the process of becoming a social memory complex is one which involves sharing the suffering of the rest of the members of the spiritual family on Earth. Q’uo said that each of us is everyone else’s other self, and wherever on Earth there is suffering, that is what we all share. And when we all attain the level of a social memory complex we will continue on in expanding the consciousness of our spiritual family as we become the consciousness of the Creator and the creation. In 11.17, Ra described the nature of the social memory complex:

Questioner: At what stage does a planet achieve social memory?

Ra: I am Ra. A mind/body/spirit social complex becomes a social memory complex when its entire group of entities are of one orientation or seeking. The group memory lost to the individuals in the roots of the tree of mind then become[s] known to the social complex, thus creating a social memory complex. The advantages of this complex are the relative lack of distortion in understanding the social beingness and the relative lack of distortion in pursuing the direction of seeking, for all understanding/distortions are available to the entities of the society.

Much is ahead, my children. There is truly nothing that is not one with you, and there is no consciousness that you do not share. Yet each within a family is unique and each within the family of your sphere is unique. Many are aware now that it is time to feel the family working more closely together, and you have called this networking. Think of it as reunion as well as work, for in the instinct to network, you may see the instinct that calls all to the family reunion.

Be aware that you did not enter this lifetime to enjoy the comfort of a family alone, but also to gain strength from it, that each may do its work with more love and more peace, that more hearts may be made merry, and more spirits at rest through the radiance of each light worker. In order to keep the self clear enough for what each came to do, we ask each to meditate on a daily basis, if for only a few minutes. That regular opening is all-important, that dependable silence life-giving.

We have enjoyed using this instrument and speaking with you, and we thank you for your energy and attention. We would at this time transfer to the one known as Jim. I am known to you as Q’uo.

This morning I set the sprinkler in a couple of areas to water various flowers and bushes. After that I ran some errands with my first stop being the bank where I made a cash withdrawal. The second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market where I bought some food for myself. The third stop was at the vet’s to pick up some syringes for Bosco. My last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I picked up a prescription for myself and some non-food items.

This afternoon I drove over to southern Indiana to visit my friend, Connie, who has been in the care home for five years as a result of suffering two strokes in 2018. We had a dessert of strawberry ice cream and snickerdoodle cake. Then I read more of Dianne Aprile’s book Things You Don’t Forget. She is still making progress with her right leg which, along with her right hand, was paralyzed by the strokes. She has more movement in her right leg, and we are hopeful that this will continue.

A Home In Each Willing Heart

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

What a blessing it is for the spirit to find ears willing to hear and hearts open to receive the spirit of the Lord! For though the spirit broods over every living thing, fulfilling in every possible way the promise of infinite love and infinite life, yet still many hearts are shut to us. And those who open to us do not linger long ofttimes.

How grateful we are to find a home in each willing heart, to find consciousnesses who wish the gifts of the spirit. Though your lives be busy, may you linger long today at odd moments within the holy ground of your own heart, to know and feel the love and will of God in Jesus Christ and to reach forth an arm filled with the strength of perfect love to bring into manifestation the fruits of that love.

Whether these acts be the act of the mother with the child, the hand of the businessman with a customer, or the hand of a head of state with the fate of a nation, yet are all these acts potentially filled with perfect love.

We leave you in that peace which cannot be explained yet which is more powerful than that peace which is only the absence of violence, the peace of Christ, now and forever.

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 and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from March 1, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Latwii, and we are most happy and honored to greet each in love and in light. It has been quite a period of your time since we have been able to speak through this instrument to this group and we are very happy that we have been called this evening and we offer ourselves at this time in the attempt to speak to those queries which you may offer to us. May we begin, my friends, with a query?

J: Would you explain the relationship between Q’uo and Latwii?

I am Latwii. I am not Q’uo. We may suggest that the relationship is that of fellow seekers. As those gathered in this domicile are each seekers of truth, sharing that seeking and sharing the path, so we share with those of Q’uo and with many others as well the seeking for truth in the vibrational frequency of wisdom or light. We are similar to those of Q’uo in that we are what you have learned to call a social memory complex, that is, a grouping of mind/body/spirit complexes which seeks as one being the nature of truth.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: I understand what you just said. Normally in our sessions, the question and answer session is also handled by the same entity that is channeled during the session. Can you explain [why] Latwii has decided to come through for this particular question and answer session?

I am Latwii, and we are happy to speak to that point, my brother. As we cast our thoughts back in your time, we find that there was a time during which we also spoke in the capacity of those of Q’uo in giving the opening message and followed that service with the honor of attempting to speak to queries. This service has largely of late been offered by those of Q’uo, for this group has in its progression of experience attracted to it this group of entities now known to you as Q’uo which is able to speak to the concerns of this group in a fashion which is more closely aligned with the group’s seeking.

We have been called this evening to offer our services in the answering of queries by a member of your group which remembers us in, shall we say, our heyday when we spoke as the primary contact of this group, and we are honored to once again be invited to this group, for it has always been our joy to offer our services to this group, for this group has been able in most instances to grasp the ridiculous nature of our sense of humor when we have been able to express it through the rigid confines of this instrument’s mind.

Honestly, I don’t know why Latwii didn’t say that they were the fifth-density portion of the principle of Q’uo just as those of Hatonn were the fourth-density portion, and those of Ra were the sixth density portion. Eventually I know that all of this was made clear, but why it was not mentioned now is a mystery to me.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: No, thank you, that cleared that up. To get back to tonight’s session, I would like to ask a question about the archetypical mind of… Let me regress just a minute. It was stated that wisdom, being the archetype of the serpent, was responsible basically for the ousting from the garden of Eden. Am I to understand from that our overindulgence in intellectual pursuits, rather than pursuits of the heart, does that lead to our ousting from the garden of Eden even today? Does that make sense?

I am Latwii, and we feel that we have the gist of your query in our grasp, and we shall respond with that supposition in mind. Please query further if we are mistaken.

The concepts, as we have listened to them being shared this evening, concerning the wisdom and the movement of the archetypical energies of the male and female principles out of the unity that was prevalent within the garden of Eden, as it is called, are a force; that is, wisdom, which allows for the gaining of experience by those portions of the Creator which comprise Its creation. This movement into experience is that which entities seem to experience from the state of grace, harmony and unity which is the nature of the garden of Eden in which all is provided without the need for seeking or striving or experiencing of any kind. Yet, it is the purpose of the creation to provide the Creator means by which It might know Itself in ways not available without the creation and without movement from the unity occurring within the creation by those who populate the creation.

Thus, those principles represented by Adam and Eve, the male and the female principles, present in each entity, are provided the necessity as well as the opportunity of gaining experience in order that the consciousness which they represent might become individualized to the extent that greater and greater experience is gained and greater and greater distortion, shall we say, or movement from unity results, thereby creating the need or the antithetical movement to again rejoin the unity of all creation, bringing with this movement back toward unity all experience that is gained in the movement from unity, thereby glorifying the Creator by the bringing of the harvest of experience home, shall we say.

The tendency of the quality of wisdom to individualize itself in consciousness is a tendency which can be intensified to the extent that an entity may so separate itself from all about it that it travels its journey of seeking upon the path that you might call the negative path, or that which separates self from all other self.

The compassion or love which the entities knew within the garden of Eden, and which seems removed from them as they journey from that garden, are forces which are most easily aligned with that quality that you might call the positive path or the radiant path. These qualities of wisdom and love are the representations of the nature of the Creator in creation, that any entity might choose as the path upon which it shall journey back into unity with all the creation and the one Creator.

Q’uo began this channeling session through Carla, but when her channeling was over it was Latwii that began channeling through me because a member of this channeling meditation, who was familiar with Latwii, wanted to hear from them again. Then when Latwii asked for questions, J asked if the serpent, which was stated as the archetype of wisdom, is responsible for causing people to be driven from the Garden of Eden even today, and that this would not happen if we manifested the love of our hearts. Latwii said that this movement from the Garden of Eden and unity into the world of seeming separation gave the Creator more ways of knowing Itself. It also gave entities in the third density ways of polarizing their consciousness in service to others or to self so that the journey back into unity with the one Creator might be achieved. In 82.21-22, Ra described the nature of this process of being driven from the Garden of Eden that would give the Creator more ways of knowing Itself:

Questioner: Then even though, from our point of view, there was great evolutionary experience it was deemed at some point by the evolving Logos that an experiment to create a greater experience was appropriate. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct and may benefit from comment. The Logos is aware of the nature of the third-density requirement for what you have called graduation. All the previous, if you would use this term, experiments, although resulting in many experiences, lacked what was considered the crucial ingredient; that is, polarization. There was little enough tendency for experience to polarize entities that entities repeated habitually the third-density cycles many times over. It was desired that the potential for polarization be made more available.

Questioner: Then since the only possibility at this particular time, as I see it, was a polarization for service to others, I must assume from what you said that even though all were aware of this service-to-others necessity they were unable to achieve it. What was the configuration of mind of the mind/body/spirit complexes at that time? Were they aware of the necessity for the polarization or unaware of it? And if so, why did they have such a difficult time serving others to the extent necessary for graduation since this was the only polarity possible?

Ra: I am Ra. Consider, if you will, the tendency of those who are divinely happy, as you call this distortion, to have little urge to alter or better their condition. Such is the result of the mind/body/spirit which is not complex. There is the possibility of love of other-selves and service to other-selves, but there is the overwhelming awareness of the Creator in the self. The connection with the Creator is that of the umbilical cord. The security is total. Therefore, no love is terribly important; no pain terribly frightening; no effort, therefore, is made to serve for love or to benefit from fear.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: I think I understand most of what you said. Let me just ask one further question. Is mankind journeying back toward the garden of Eden, or away from the garden of Eden?

I am Latwii, and we assume that your query refers to the mankind that is the inhabitant of your third-density illusion, and if this be the case, we would suggest that your population within your vibratory frequency is that which is perfecting that quality of self-consciousness which is able to choose the path upon which it shall return to that condition of unity which is represented by the garden of Eden within your holy work.

Thus, the great journey that has been set upon in the creation has reached its culmination within beings such as yourselves who have succeeded in individualizing the consciousness to the extent that to most of your population it seems that each entity is quite separate, one from another, and that there is very little that connects beings in the creation, and that the creation itself, indeed, is that which is many things, each separate from the other.

Thus, at this time, those of your population of third density are beginning the process of making the choice which shall allow the return through much of what you call time and experience and the refining of those choices made within your illusion, back to the unity of all things and beings.

So J asked if at this time mankind was journeying out of the Garden of Eden or back to the Garden of Eden. Latwii responded by saying that the third-density population of Earth is now functioning in a state of seeming separation from each other and is making the choices that will allow them to achieve the unity with all things and beings which would be the equivalent of moving back into the Garden of Eden but with far more learning of spiritual lessons and the polarization of our consciousness having been achieved. On May 26, 1974, Hatonn spoke of the illusion of the seeming separation between third-density beings:

We are aware that the very nature of the physical illusion is such that the individual who is enjoying this illusion experiences many sensations of seeming separation and lack of love. My friends, we can only tell you that this is an illusion. If you allow yourself through meditation to seek reality, you will quickly discover the vast and limitless ocean of love which bathes the entire creation of the Father. There is nothing but this love. Not only is it all about you, but, my friends, it is you in that each fiber of your soul and your physical being is composed of love and light.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: No, thank you. That’s all the questions I have tonight.

I am Latwii, and we thank you, my brother. Is there another query?

Carla: Yes, I guess I’d better ask S1’s question. This is from S1. She sends her love and realizes that this is not precisely philosophical, and realizes that you do not infringe on free will, and anything you can say will be fine.

She says that in her sleep she’s been going up against a glass wall, and when she wakes up, she’s coming back through the wall, but she can’t remember what she was doing on the other side. She wonders if she will ever be able to remember, and what the nature of the wall is?

I am Latwii, and we find that with this query we move quite close to the potential for infringing upon free will, and shall do our utmost to walk that line carefully. We may assure the one known as S1 that the process which she is now undergoing is one which is the normal outgrowth of her own inner seeking. The experience which she is able to remember will continue to expand in detail according to her ability to utilize in a conscious fashion the information which is contained therein. We may not speak as to the content or quality of this information, for this is that which is of necessity reserved for the exploration of this entity within her own experience in contemplation and meditation.

The protection that she has provided through ritualized intention is quite sufficient to give this entity the assurance of safe passage during her sleep and dream periods in which the passage through the wall occurs, and we commend this entity for its diligence in taking the time to provide itself with this quality of protection.

We can recommend to this entity that the focusing of the attention at the present time upon the feeling tones [that] are present when she is able to recall any portion of this experience is that which shall be helpful in tracing the path that now is only dimly lit, and which will, with time and intention of seeking, become more discernible to her subconscious and then conscious mind. The contemplation and meditation upon these feeling tones will prepare the conscious mind to accept more and more of that which is available to it through the subconscious mind from the experience that occurs beyond that wall of forgetting.

Now Carla asked a question for S1 who said that in dreams she has experienced going through a glass wall and then coming back through it, but she can’t remember what she did on the other side of this wall. She asked Latwii if she ever would be able to remember her experiences on the other side of the wall, and what was the nature of this wall? Latwii said her experiences were a function of her own spiritual seeking, and that her memory of them would increase with time spent in meditation and contemplation upon the feeling tones that help her to recall any of these experiences that are given to her conscious mind from her subconscious mind that occur “beyond the wall of forgetting.” Beyond the wall of forgetting seems to be a hint from Latwii that J1 is moving through the veil of forgetting. In 83.16, Ra mentioned how dreaming may be helpful in penetrating 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.

May we speak in any further fashion, my sister?

Carla: No, I’d just like to thank you for S1, and to tell you that I know she’ll be very happy with the answer and really appreciates being able to contact you. And if she has another question, she can write me back and I’ll ask you then. It’s nice to hear you.

I am Latwii, and we thank you both, my sisters, for we take great joy in having the opportunity of speaking to each such seeker, and we are especially grateful that this instrument has provided us the opportunity to utilize its abilities at this time. We were about to make a somewhat less than serious comment about its abilities, but refrained at the last moment, for fear of causing too much giggling within a mind which needs a firm center at the moment.

Is there another query at this time?

J: Yes, I have a question. It harks back to the answer you just gave, one portion of it which is a small portion, but probably very important. I’ve always had a kind of thing about worrying about negative influences, when I meditate, entities that may be negatively inclined influencing me. I’ve always basically, and I know Carla and I have had discussions and she has chastised me lovingly a few times for my views on this, but I’ve never worried about negative entities influencing me or messing with me in any way. Sometimes, I used to think, well, maybe I’m just popping off, maybe I really do worry about it, or I’m afraid of it deep down. But I don’t think I am, and I’ve never been one to back off from, if someone had something new they wanted to try, even something as silly as getting stoned and meditating real heavy or something. But, whatever, I mean, this would seem this would leave me open to a negative influence.

And my question, after all that is, you said that you appreciated that S1 protected herself against a negative influence on her journey. Can you, if—would a strong or a firm belief that you can’t really be influenced by these negative entities be the same, sort of, and adequate protection against that? I don’t really doubt they exist, but…

[Side one of tape ends.]

(Jim channeling)

I am Latwii, and we are again with this instrument. We may agree that the attitude of which you speak is of great assistance in providing the self with the armor of light that sings of radiance and service and of the sure step upon the path of seeking. This is a most helpful attitude for most entities who seek the nature of their reality. The more intensely one desires to be of service to those about one, the brighter does the light grow. This light is of a metaphysical nature, seen in these realms as a source of power, the power of radiance, the power of service.

There are those entities who travel a darker path who also notice a source of light and power and are attracted by this light so that they might continue upon their journey of gathering power for their own use, and will, if the light is powerful or bright enough, attempt to infringe upon that light in the attempt to gather it for their own use. This is a process which provides the natural balance, shall we say, within all life patterns, for the opportunity to taste of the positive polarity must be balanced with the opportunity to taste of the negative polarity. The entity who seeks within your illusion is one which faces choices at each step along the journey of seeking. That which is learned, then, creates within the entity the need for putting that which is learned into practice within the life pattern. Thus, the life must equal the learning.

If an entity has begun choosing in a purely positive fashion the path of radiance, and within its life pattern from time to time makes choices which do not reflect that which has been learned, and in fact become disharmonious and perhaps injurious to those about one, there is created within the life pattern an opening which may be accentuated by those of the negative persuasion, shall we say.

This is a natural process of testing that which has been learned, and may be used by the seeker of truth to reinvestigate and strengthen those qualities that have been found to be less than perfectly integrated into the life pattern. Just so, the qualities of the positive polarity may indeed be intensified by those of the positive path in the same fashion, so that one finds oneself usually in a manner which is not consciously noticed, traveling a path which has, shall we say, opportunities or tests which will allow the entity to demonstrate its ability to live that which has been learned, and to continue refining this ability until it is consciously moving itself along the evolutionary path in a fashion which perceives more than the outer nature of things.

Thus, there is no, shall we say, negative influence which is possible without the invitation or opening being created by the seeker. The attitude with which the seeker greets all such possibilities is the attitude which will increase or decrease the efficiency of the seeking.

At this point, we would ask if we might speak in any further fashion, for this is a field which is quite large in scope, and we do not wish to move too rapidly across it without asking for further queries.

J felt that he was not concerned about negative entities influencing him when he meditated even when he got stoned or meditated deeply. And he was wondering if he should be concerned, or if maybe deep down he was worried. Q’uo said that his positive attitude was helpful in keeping such negative influences away as it was a kind of armor of light. However, Q’uo also mentioned that there were negative entities that were attracted to such powerful sources of light and they would like to gain that light for their own uses. So Q’uo said it is necessary to keep shining that light in the positive fashion without taking any steps of disharmony away from that path which could be intensified by the negative entities in their effort to take the light for themselves. In 57.3, Ra gave the basic principle of how such psychic greetings may be experienced:

The Orion group cannot interfere directly but only through pre-existing distortions of mind/body/spirit complexes.

Which includes inharmonious thoughts that a person may have that do not reflect their true spiritual nature as a seeker of truth.

J: I believe I basically understand what you’ve said so far. And that’s sufficient. I sometimes wonder if I were really consciously tested in a real heavy manner, that is, if I did see a ghost, what would I do? Maybe I don’t have… I wonder. I guess I question my conditions. Maybe I’ve got my light under a bushel basket and I haven’t attracted anything for that reason. I’m not sure. But at any rate, I believe your answer is sufficient for me at this time. Thank you.

I am Latwii, and we thank you, my brother, and would only add that this process is one which is not usually noticeable within any seeker’s life pattern, but is part of the great mystery of seeking, which each of us attempts to unravel as we continue in our journeys.

Is there a further query at this time?

S2: Latwii, this is not really a question—I’m hoping you can give me one of your confirmations. I saw several, what we erroneously call aliens, apparently working on R, and I wanted to know if you could confirm for me that that was indeed what was going on?

I am Latwii, and we choose at this point to speak in a fashion which shall not be overly specific and therefore risk the infringement upon free will. We scan your recent experience in order to discover the nature of this experience. It is possible for us to affirm that your vision is that which has seen the aiding of the one known as R in a fashion which is congruent with this entity’s belief in the state of what you call health being a function of the attitude of mind and the attracting to the system of belief of those qualities of mind which have been lacking, shall we say, and which have provided the opportunity for the balance that will then set the stage, shall we say, for the regaining of that quality that you call health.

May we speak further, my sister?

S1: No, I think I’ll have to read that one first. But, I wanted to ask you. Could you tell me why, whenever you show up, I get this really wonderful happy feeling? And I don’t ever get it when anybody else shows up. And I was just wondering if you can tell me the reason for that?

I am Latwii, and as much as we would like to inform you as to the particular reason why you find our humble vibrations helpful and happy-making, we must refrain at this time, and are only able to give our gratitude in response, and we thank you for your happy reception of our vibrations. We look forward to all such opportunities of sharing, my sister.

Is there any further query?

Carla: I’d like to follow up on S2’s. Is what you were saying was that S2’s vision was a materialization very much like psychic surgery where it was a manifestation, an illusion, but a manifestation, symbolic of the inner healing that R and his higher self or some overshadowing helper or helpers, an inner healing that they were effecting, and that what S2 saw was a materialization which symbolized the inner process. Is that what you said, basically? I thought I caught that.

I am Latwii, and we find that you have nearly grasped the nature of that which we spoke. We would only add that the qualities which the one known as S2 has perceived are indeed representative of the inner work now ongoing with the one known as R, according to this entity’s system of belief regards the concept of healing and health.

S2 had asked if Latwii could confirm that he saw what he thought were aliens working on R, and was that really what was happening. Carla also wanted to follow up on S2’s experience as being like what psychic surgeon’s do when they perform their healing efforts that are working with inner plane beings which symbolize the healing effort. Latwii agreed that Carla’s statement was correct. In 66.13, Don spoke of the same process, and Ra confirmed it:

Questioner: I have observed many activities known as psychic surgery in the area of the Philippine Islands. It was my assumption that these healers are providing what I would call a training aid or a way of creating a reconfiguration of the mind of the patient to be healed as the relatively naïve patient observes the action of the healer in seeing the materialized blood, etc., then reconfigures the roots of mind to believe, you might say, the healing is done and, therefore, heals himself. Is this analysis that I made correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. 

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: So you’re saying that the manifestation was for S2, but the inner healing process is ongoing and is for R?

I am Latwii, and this is correct. Is there another query at this time?

S2: I don’t have a question, I just want to say, I think it’s a heyday every time you show up.

Carla: Hey! With a call like that, he’ll be back.

I am Latwii, and we have appreciated both the query and the shared silence. We rejoice at the opportunity of blending our vibrations with yours, and we hope that our humble words have had some assistance this evening to your seeking. We are, as you well know, quite fallible in our opinions and we do not wish any word to be overly weighted in your perception. Take those which do have meaning and leave those which do not. We shall leave this group at this time, rejoicing always in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Latwii. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I vacuumed the first floor of the house and then went to an appointment with an orthodontic surgeon to see if he could identify a small sore above the gum line. He wasn’t certain what it was but scheduled an appointment for me to have it surgically removed. After the appointment I stopped by a nearby Kroger’s to buy some food for myself.

This afternoon I used my extension ladder to paint three of the decorative boards at the bottom of the roof of the house on the outside of the soffits. Then a technician from New Circle Mechanical came by to give me an estimate on what it would cost to electrify the closets in each of the three bedrooms upstairs.

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

Open That Door

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

Have you far to go this day? Do the miles seem long and weary to travel? Is there little bread and bitter herbs to eat when you come home? So it is in many souls’ experience.

The Comforter does not stop occurrences from happening within your day and within your life. It is a companion. We as a force are with you always. You cannot run faster than we can follow and we shall always bear you up within, if you but seek the comfort of divine love within.

The principle of love, the spirit of Christ, awaits you behind the door of your heart. Open that door. Go into the inner room. Feel the holiness of that ground within. And then take it to the dreary task and the difficult day and find it transformed by love.

We wish you 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 March 1, 1987:

General question concerning the story in the Bible of Adam and Eve, whether it is an actual story of people that existed, or a symbolic story supposed to show us certain principles, etc.

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is a rare privilege and blessing to be called to this seeking group of pilgrims, and we are honored that we are guests at such a banquet of love.

The one who wishes to study the creation may fruitfully study what is popularly called the archetypical mind. Indeed, we know of no better name for this informational treasure house than the mind of the archetypes. It is archetypes, rather than individuals, which the stories of creation seek to illuminate, for creation of self-consciousness begins, subjectively, after creation. The consciousness [which is] conscious of creation is only that of the Creator, and within the illusions which all of us enjoy there is no direct road to clear perception.

It is necessary that expression be general, for the witness to creation is mute and lies within the infinite mystery of the potential intelligence of the uncreated and created Creator, whose mystery is whole and entire and has not and shall not be disturbed by the puny and petty ponderings of our kind. We are seekers, not finders, my friends.

And so within us lie the deepest hunches of what you may call your races. Upon some planets, all have the same archetypical mind. Some of the confusions about creation lie in the various stories of creation, generated by the archetypical minds of those from different planetary influences. There are many such upon your particular planet. It is well, in considering the archetypical mind, to work with a system which is found instinctively by you to be evocative of the rich fruit of suggestion and inference, for each image is designed to center one within a portion of deep knowledge about one’s origin and definition, one’s way of progression and hope for the future.

The group question was whether the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden was an actual story with real people or an analogy designed to teach certain principles. Q’uo began their answer by saying that the nature of the creation is the consciousness of the Creator which is a mystery, and this mystery can often be illuminated by symbols such as the archetypical mind. They said the archetypical mind is designed to focus one’s attention upon
“one’s origin and definition, one’s way of progression and hope for the future.” In 93.14, Ra gave a definition of the archetypical mind:

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.

Let us look at the most well-known myth within this group of entities. In this story, the first man is made greater than all the animals and able to talk to the Creator. Now, my friends, there is rich food for thought in this image, and, indeed, one of your teachers makes fruitful use of the theme in what you call the parable of the prodigal son. Each of you has an Eden, a time of untrammeled and untroubled beauty, a golden time when the body, soul, mind and heart felt good, at home and well. The sun was happy and even the rain hardly noticeable. And yet somehow, somewhere, through the process of all the years of incarnation, as you call them, you have left the garden—and how alone you feel!

Yet, both in and out of the garden, there comes the second archetype—the helper. Each entity has within it the lonely warrior and the helper, the fount of all wisdom and solace. Your Logos has created a strongly biased sexual differentiation so that although each male and each female experience both needs, yet still to the male is given the striving for the freedom by nature; to the female, the centered feeling of untold riches of happiness, solace and peace.

Neither males nor females experience enough of freedom without an emotional bias, and neither males nor females experience most purely the joy of being of total service. Yet by the sexual choice of a chemical body at the beginning of incarnation each of you has chosen to experience the male archetype or the female archetype as regards that which is demanded by the culture. It is to be noted that only in highly cerebral cultures where education has been carried far does the idea of interchangeable roles surface, for it is not an idea which fits naturally with the genetic disposition of the third-density body which has been issued to each of you.

Then Q’uo moves on to the story of Adam and Eve. Q’uo described Adam as greater than all of the animals and able to talk to the Creator. Adam experiences a golden time of beauty and happiness, and then there comes the time of leaving the garden and feeling loneliness. And this is where the helper, Eve, comes in, and both Adam and Eve experience wisdom and solace. However, the male’s nature is to strive for freedom, and the female nature is to experience riches, happiness, and peace. In 92.20, Ra stated these characteristics in similar terms:

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. 

This is one small example of the archetypes which may be studied in the creation myth. Also of interest is the introduction, very early in the myth and with repeated emphases, of the eventual and inevitable fall, for repeatedly the archetypical male and female choose freely to disobey the Creator to whom they can talk. Each of you may feel a desire to speak directly to your Creator, but perhaps if the Creator’s face were familiar the Creator might be taken for granted. Perhaps the Creator which is a mystery is the more understandable Creator and the more to be appreciated.

Then Q’uo referred to when Adam and Eve, as the archetypical male and female, might freely choose to disobey the Creator if the Creator’s face was familiar to them, and this disobedience would be analogous to the fall from grace in the Adam and Eve story. This suggests that if we cannot see the face of the Creator in those that we interact with on a daily basis that we are also partaking in this fall from grace. On January 2, 1993, Latwii reminded us that each person is the Creator:

Each of you moves within an illusion, within a forgetting. You move within a darkness. Though your days be brightly lit, still, as you seek within your being for the truth, you seek in moonlight, for it is not clear to those who have forgotten that each is the Creator that such is the case. And as you move through your illusion you carry the small candle of your consciousness with you to dimly light your way.

When the female archetype known as Eve met with the instrument which removed the couple from the garden, it was at the behest of a very important figure. It is to be noted that in the Tarot the serpent is the image of wisdom, and so it is intended in this creation myth which draws heavily upon the same cultural material. It is wisdom which can be the most effectively negative creation, for an over-abundance of love is more difficult to twist entirely. The habit of over-stimulation of the intellect is far more likely to end in a negative movement. Yet, does not all of your experiences as a race and as individuals depend almost completely upon the presence, the enthusiasm, and the action of the serpent in your lives, those seemingly negative forces which cause one to be experiencing life outside the garden, where each day has challenges and it is difficult to express or even feel faith and passion, hope and joy?

Yet is it not, when you look back upon those times that you see so often the greatest of progress made during those difficult times? What to praise and what to blame about the creation of the Father? It is difficult, nay, let us say impossible, to call any portion of the creation bad, for the debt of the pilgrim to the negative population upon your planet is great. You are experiencing life both in and out of the garden. Each portion of that story is a portion of a complex series of archetypes. The study of the archetypical mind is most helpful, yet we would not encourage you to study to the extent of mental and spiritual indigestion in order to feel that you are progressing along the spiritual path.

Then Q’uo used the serpent as an analogy of wisdom and said that it is wisdom that can lead us astray as it did for Eve. Q’uo went on to say that an abundance of love is hard to distort whereas the intellect that can be seen as wisdom is more likely to lead to negative experiences. However, Q’uo said that even though the serpent may lead us out of the garden where we can experience little of faith, joy, or passion we can learn a great deal from such difficult experiences. In 34.14, Ra said that this is the nature of how we learn in the third density:

It is to be noted that among your entities a large percentage of all progression has as catalyst, trauma.

We would at this time make note that those things which are most important to learn, to grasp, and to make a part of the life are those things which are simple and devoid of the complexity of language and ratiocination, for you seek that which is found in silence and in eternity. You seek, therefore, in a foreign language and in an alien land, yet it is your native tongue and your native home. The language of the heart shall speak for you in the kingdom you now seek. We await you there and are with you there this moment. As your consciousness points and wills and meditates itself to be, so you shall be.

Be careful what you desire. Be assiduous in your meditations, and may you have our greatest thanks for asking us such an interesting question. It has been our pleasure to talk upon the subject and we hope that we have said a few things which may spark other questions or give you food for thought. Of course, we are fallible and prone to error, as is any seeker of mystery. If there is aught said that grates, please ignore our humble words and continue seeking, serene and confident in your own judgment.

We find that the there is a desire for one of our comrades to speak through the one known as Jim, and so at this time we shall leave the group, thanking it for the blessing it has given us in being able to share time and thought with you. We especially greet those whom we do not see each week, for to us all times are the same, and it is a great joy to see each soul with whom our vibrations have learned to dance in rhythm. We leave this instrument now, and each of you, 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 weeded the Astible garden, the Ruins Mound, and the two gardens in front of the fish pond by hand. At mid-morning an insurance agent came by to look at my roof to see if the wind and hail damage that the fellow who cleaned my gutters last week said was present. He couldn’t find any signs of hail or wind damage on either my house or the garage, which was a great relief for me since I really would not want to go through all the noise and damage to hydrangeas and azaelas that would inevitably happen as the old shingles were being torn off and headed toward these bushes below.

This afternoon I used my trimmer to finish the trimming around walkways, flower gardens, trees, and bushes where my mower could not go yesterday when I cut the grass.

This afternoon I used the hose and watering wand to water the small forsythia bushes on the north and south borders of my property.

The Sanctified Nature Of Cycles

I am the Holy Spirit of the nature of Jesus the Christ and I greet you with the full consciousness of love.

Make up your minds to look about you today and open your heart to what you see. You shall see that which is barely growing, that which is in bloom, that which is ending its manifestation, and that in which there seems to be no more life.

This is true of growing things in nature, of pilgrim souls upon their journeys and of each institution made by man and by God. Perhaps you will begin to see the sanctified nature of the cycles of birth and death which are appropriate and beautiful in the continually changing and evolving creation of Love.

Growth means change and change is perceived as difficult. May you, today, see the rightness of the rhythms of your experience, celebrating in them the beauty of perfection.

We leave you in the peace of the understanding of the harmonious plan of a loving God, now and ever. Amen.

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 15, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each of you again through this instrument in love and in light. It is our privilege at this time to open this meeting to queries which those gathered may have brought for the asking. May we begin with a query at this time?

J: Is the basic denial that exists on this plane, is that basically just the denial that we are God and that our own will is one and the same with the will of God? Is that the basic denial that’s kept us separated from the one God all this time?

I am Q’uo, and we find that the query which you have asked is one which covers a great deal of territory and experience within your illusion. If we may look upon the population of your planet’s third-density illusion, we see that the great veil of forgetting which separates the conscious from the unconscious mind is that which effectively brings about a condition which you may in your terminology call a denial of sight. This sight is that which is most inward and outward seeking for the nature of the creation in which [an] entity finds itself.

If we are to look upon the primary means of perceiving the creation and its meaning for those of your third density, we might take that denial of which you have spoken and describe it rather as the inability to perceive the unity of all the creation, the infinity which is the foundation, the current reality and what you would call a future experience for all those of the third-density illusion. Thus, this inability to see the connected nature of all things, all thoughts, is a denial which, indeed, allows an entity to consider itself separate from and outside the influence of that power which you call God or the Creator. This seeming separation or denial or lack of perception creates a condition in which an entity may learn a variety of lessons which will eventually provide an opportunity for the integrating of each individual lesson with the wholeness of not only the Greater Self, which resides beyond the veil of forgetting, but the selves of all creatures and things about one in the creation and indeed with the Creator Itself.

Thus, the perception is limited, in order that work might be done within limited boundaries that would not be possible should the boundaries not exist and the sight penetrate infinity and thus make the experiment of limitations that which is obvious to those who see with far-seeing eyes. With the impossibility of such limitation there is also the lack of opportunity for the experience of the Creator in an individualized form. This individualized form is that which each third density takes up in order that there might be a greater experience and glorification provided for the one Creator through each individual.

J asked if the basic denial on Earth was people’s inability to realize that we are all God, and that our will is also one with God’s will, and has this basic denial kept us separate from God? Q’uo began their answer by saying that it is the veil of forgetting that keeps us from seeing that we are one with the entire creation of all things and creatures. Moreover, this basic denial gives entities the opportunity to learn a variety of lessons that will help them to integrate each lesson with the wholeness of the Creator and all of the creation which exists beyond the veil of forgetting. Thusly is the Creator glorified by each entity’s experience helping the Creator to know Itself. On September 18, 2019, Q’uo described how the veil of forgetting works to help us grow spiritually:

The third-density experience, as you are well aware, is not one of understanding, for there is the veil of forgetting that separates the conscious from the unconscious minds, and from the greater nature of reality that is the true reality in which we live and move and have our being. However, within the third-density experience, this veil of forgetting makes it impossible to know or understand for sure what will be the product or the result of one’s efforts in service to others. What one can know is one’s intention, one’s desire, the strength of the desire to be of service, to be a loving entity, and to seek the One Creator within each experience, is that which will lead one forward upon the path of service to others, and increase the positive polarity according to the strength of the will and intention to serve.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: No, that was excellent, Thank you.

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

H: Yeah, I have one thing, one ideal on this thing, and that is this. If we entertain thoughts of this mark as such and all that, would that actually prevent or hold us from being fourth-density material? I assume that this is right, if we continue to entertain bad thoughts or evil thoughts rather than positive thoughts. Is this right?

I am Q’uo, and, my brother, though there is the tendency towards correctness in your supposition, the simplicity of its statement is that which we would hesitate in accepting as correct, for it is indeed true that the focus of one’s attention determines where one shall find the opportunity for lessons and services. The focus of one’s attention, in a general context, if it rests upon the appearance of things, is destined to move from that which seems separate and perhaps threatening to yet another portion of experience that seems separate from the self and perhaps again threatening to the self, for all the creation about one within your illusion seems to be quite removed from the individual experience without cohesion, without rhythm, and without harmony.

Yet, if one directs the attention and the desire to known the nature of things beyond the exterior appearance of things and begins to move into the heart of all things and thought and activity, one may with such a focused attention begin to harmonize the individual perception of each portion of the creation which surrounds one, thus bringing into a coherent pattern various portions of the creation which with renewed dedication of seeking begin to fit as one part of a puzzle fitting into another and another and another, so that the creation one [perceives] begins to take on a form and a feeling and a purpose, and an experience of unity becomes more and more possible for such a seeker and such a focused point of viewing the creation about it.

Thus, my brother, when looking upon any portion of the creation which surrounds one, it is well to note not only the exterior appearance and action of things, events and peoples, but to begin to move beyond those appearances within one’s thinking and perceiving so that the common features and feelings and rhythms and tones may become apparent as well and as layer upon layer of meaning is discovered, the simplicity and unity of all portions of the creation become more apparent to one who seeks in this manner.

And thus, as the unified nature of the creation becomes apparent to such an entity, and the entity begins to move in harmony with the power, the creative power of Love which is found to move all things, then one more and more readies the self for the graduation, as you have called it, into that density of love and understanding where the veils are removed and the Creator more clearly stands before the entity in all experience.

H asked if we entertain evil thoughts, would this keep us from graduating into the fourth density. Q’uo replied by saying that H was somewhat correct, but it was more correct to realize that the seeming separation which is the nature of the illusion and evil thoughts may be experienced as threatening to the self. Nevertheless, if one focuses the attention and desire beyond the appearance of separation and moves instead into the harmonizing of one’s perception of the variety of experiences and begins to create a coherent pattern of the puzzle pieces of life, one can begin to experience the unity of creation. Then we begin to move in harmony with the creative power of Love, and we see the Creator all around us. On April 29, 1984, Hatonn described the process by which we can begin to experience the unity of creation:

Further, it is likely that you as your great Self, hope that in this incarnational experience you not only find transparency in the illusion and begin to read the daily experience, but also you begin to act in accordance with your understanding. Please understand, the fruits of the work of the seeker are secondary to the original intention of grasping the truth, however, one who seeks and begins to find the truth then finds that unless that which is learned is now manifested, further learning will be slow, and the lessons will seem to repeat themselves. The process is from opacity of experience to transparency of experience, and with your feet planted firmly in the Kingdom of Heaven, moving back into the world of illusion with eyes which see, ears that hear, hearts that understand, hands that can reach without reserve in service to others.

May we speak further, my brother?

H: No, that was very well explained. I have a much better feel for it now. I appreciate it and I thank you.

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

Questioner: I have a question in reference to the number six, pertaining to numerology as in a person’s name. If there is an absence of six, is this significant? And if so, in what way?

I am Q’uo, and we are not completely sure if our grasp of your query is sufficient Please requery if our response is not sufficient. The numbering that is apparent within any entity’s naming or date of birth is a symbol which opens, shall we say, the road map in a certain area of the entity’s life to the entity’s viewing in order that perhaps the wide and narrow portions of the road might be seen and given appropriate attention. Whether one or another number is present or missing is a portion of the entity’s roadmap, the presence or absence of which adds or subtracts certain characteristics or possibilities for that entity. Thus, the numerological understanding of an entity’s significant nature provides the symbolic form that the entity has chosen in order to express certain characteristics and to allow opportunities for certain lessons within a certain incarnation.

The Questioner asked about numerology and what it meant if there was no six in a person’s name. Q’uo replied that the presence or absence of certain numbers in a person’s name reflects pre-incarnative choices which show the nature of the life’s roadmap where there may or may not be certain opportunities for learning and service to others. On August 2, 1979, Hatonn described the value of numerology in general:

Perhaps the best use of astrology and many of the other disciplines, such as tarot, numerology, and the others, is as a focusing point, shall we say, for the psychic power of the individual. It may be quite small to begin with, but by working through this particular system, your own power of intuition begins to develop, and you see more than what is in the stars or in the cards or in the numbers, and you see better.

May we speak further, my sister?

Questioner: I think that answers it. Thank you.

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

Carla: Well, if everybody’s all finished, I did have one. Q’uo, I wonder if you could help me in my teaching. I suspect one of my students, a girl named W, of having an entity present. I’ve challenged the entity, it seems to be a positively-oriented entity. It’s not of the Confederation and I can’t get its name, but I expect W could. Now, can I help this channel to develop in such a way that the entity has the best chance of making a good, safe, positive contact with this entity, which seems to be a helpful entity, without setting her up for it? You don’t have to tell me how to do it without setting it up for it, if that’s something I have to figure out, but any tips that you could give me on how to work with this situation would be helpful because I haven’t run into it before.

I am Q’uo, and with this query we find that we must step carefully in order that we do not cross the line of free will choices which is reserved in a sacred fashion for each seeker to move within itself. The entity of which you speak, the one known as W, has as you have surmised both the ability to serve as a vocal instrument in a pronounced fashion and the opportunity to do so in a manner which is moving towards its appropriate expression. As to your role in this process…

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and am again with this instrument. We can only reaffirm, my sister, those techniques which you have utilized in a successful fashion in previous teachings, combined with the greater reliance upon the intuition which we find that you have also exercised in the recent meditation sessions with this entity.

This is an opportunity not only for this new student to learn its service, but also is an opportunity for the teacher to expand the abilities in the teaching. The techniques are familiar to you. The reliance upon the intuition is that which is newer in your experience and that which we might suggest holds the greater opportunity at this time for your service, not only to this particular new instrument, but in your service as a teacher of the vocal channeling service as well.

Carla asked about an unseen entity within a woman that she was helping learn how to channel. It was not a Confederation entity but seemed positively oriented. She wanted to know how to help the young woman channel this entity without “setting her up for it.” Q’uo said they wished to serve in this situation without infringing on anyone’s free will. Q’uo suggested that the young woman had the ability to serve as a channel, and also recommended that Carla use her normal process of teaching students how to channel plus utilize her own intuition as to how this entity might be able to be channeled by the young woman. Thus this would be a learning process for both Carla and the young woman. On May 18, 1986, L/Leema described how the intuition can work with the conscious mind to give us help in making decisions:

You are consciousness, and that consciousness creates. It has created this moment for you by the work it has done in the past. It will create what you call your future as the work that you are doing at this moment comes into manifestation. The tool of intuition is one which may be applied by the remembering and recording of your dreams and visions, by the listening to what this instrument would call the still small voice, the voice that says, “This is good; this is not so good. This feels right; this does not feel right.” An intuitive person often has no verbalized reason for these feelings. It is always well to recognize them and give them respect. It is also well to use the tool of the intellect insofar as that skill is a portion of your native character, for the intellect can analyze dreams and visions, can examine thoughts and find from them the harvest of love therein, can temper the feelings of “should” and “could” and “yes” and “no” with sometimes an encouraging and sometimes a cautionary analysis of those intuitions. Many a baseless fear has been removed because of the work of the analytical portion of the mind.

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: I’m going to read over what you said, but I believe I understand. Thanks a lot.

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

Carla: I have just one question that I’ve always wondered about and never had a satisfactory answer to. Why is everybody so fascinated with the mark of the beast? I mean, people are, anywhere in this culture. People from all different Christian and non-Christian viewpoints, very extreme, are actually interested in that.

I am Q’uo, and, my sister, we find that the simplicity of the query moved into an area which is not as simple to provide an answer for. The feeling for power and the ability to affect events and people is that which fascinates many of your population. Your population exists within an illusion in which many individual entities move and participate in the rituals of gathering wealth, position, respect and power of various kinds. It seems to many of your population that the gathering of power in whatever form and for whatever reason is an activity in which all wish to excel in some manner, whether the power be social, financial, religious or spiritual or simply the power over entities in one’s own family or neighborhood. There is the feeling within many of your population that in some way, greater and greater power may be had by those who know certain secrets that will reveal unto them procedures or techniques for gathering such power unto themselves.

Many see the power of well known figures, or the power that is spoken of in many of your holy works, and make connections between the events of your world and the events that seem to be quite beyond the mundane experience. It is felt by many that the life which is lived upon this planetary sphere is a life which prepares one for a greater life that shall become apparent when the Earthly life is finished. And yet, the power-filled nature of the creation and those who move within it continues to fascinate many who wish to feel not just a glimpse, shall we say, of such power, but wish to partake fully in it themselves. Thus, when speakings of greater and greater powers are heard, entities begin to connect these speakings with the feelings that such powers are available only to a few who have certain secrets revealed unto them.

Thus, the concept of the dark force that is embodied within speakings of the beast, as it is called, bring not only to the conscious mind images of the very nature of creation itself, but draw through the subconscious mind the faintly remembered connection that each entity has with the entire creative power of love of the one Creator. The experience within your illusion for each entity is one in which there is in some form the attempt to reconcile the powers of light and the powers of darkness in order that a unified perception of all the creation might be achieved. The darker expressions of power, being by their very nature secret and separate, seem more fascinating than the obvious brilliance and power of light manifested as love, and through such mysterious and secret fascination attract the attention of many, such as the latest gossip attracts the attention of those who speak over the backyard fence, shall we say.

We apologize for the difficulty we have had in transmitting these concepts through this instrument, but we find that this instrument’s mind is somewhat furnished with information which prejudges that which we have to offer, and we have not been overly successful, shall we say, in providing a response to your query which we felt was possible. May we speak in any further fashion, my sister?

Now Carla asked why people of all religions around the world were so fascinated with the mark of the beast. Q’uo began their answer by saying that within this third-density illusion most people feel that the gaining of power of one kind or another is the reason for their existence. Q’uo continued by saying that the average person is aware of people who have one form of power or another and many conjectures as to how this power was gained. Each person is also subconsciously aware of the great power of the one Creator within them, and when all this is put together with hearing that dark forces and the mark of the beast are ways in which power may be obtained, each person is then faced with blending the light and dark forces into a unified perception of the nature of the creation. On March 10, 1996, Q’uo described the source of light and dark forces:

As we take our leave of you we encourage each to feel that balance point within which holds all the illusion of light and dark in calm and peaceful equilibrium. Third density, and fourth as well, move deeply within the ways of polarity and duality. There are many lessons the dark and light alike can teach. We ask each to rest in the essential and eternal goodness of that foundation which is the one infinite Creator. Light and dark alike find their source and ending in love.

Carla: No, I think you’re giving yourself a hard time. I was fascinated with that. Thank you very much.

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


I am Q’uo, and we wish to thank once again each present for inviting our presence in your circle of seeking this evening. We are greatly honored to be asked to speak our humble words to a group of seekers which is as faithful as those gathered here this evening. We wish to remind each that we offer but our opinions which are fallible and filled with error. Do not hesitate to leave those behind which do not ring true.

At this time we shall take our leave of this group, thanking each once again for allowing us to join you. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. As always, we leave each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai vasu borragus.

(Carla channeling)

I am Nona. I [intoned single tone held on vowel sound “I.”] greet you in the love and in the light of the One Who is All. I [musical tone on two notes] wish each of you to join with us in mind as we sing healing tones, for there is the need within this group at this time.

[Healing melody channeled through Carla.]

Nona was an entity that Carla channeled from time to time when someone in the group had a need for being healed. Nona did most of her healing through singing healing tones.

This morning I decided to use my backpack blower to blow the leaves in the yard into position so that I could use my big mower to mulch them as well as to cut the grass. It has been too dry lately to consider doing this, but we got half an inch of much-needed rain yesterday evening, which has made this possible. Then I used my trimmer to trim the weeds from the Moss Garden.

This afternoon I used my big mower to mulch all the leaves and cut the grass as well. Then I ran a couple of errands with my first stop being Nothing Bundt Cakes to buy a snickerdoodle cake to take with me when I go to visit Connie in the care home in Southern Indiana this Saturday. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. When I got home I went back outside and used my trimmer to trim the weeds from the Ruins Mound.

The Powers Of Death

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ which speaks to the world today. I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

The powers of death have held great sway over the minds of your peoples in all times, for it is to the powers of death that all that which is negative tends. Yet all the sighs and sorrows in reaction to the experiences of the day guide one ever so subtly away from vitality and towards distraction and distress.

There is no need for the powers of death to have hold upon your mind and your heart. For even where there is perceived an unquestionable catastrophe, yet at the same time the softening voice of spirit speaks to those who listen.

We ask you to tap into this source of peace and life, for there is abundant life in any circumstance, insofar as the will and faith of the struggling seeker may open the inner eye and reach the inner hand to the spirit of truth within.

We leave you in the ineffable peace and love of Jesus the Christ, 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 February 15, 1987:

About the “mark of the beast,” as mentioned in the Bible, what it might be, what it means to people and so forth.

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo, and I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is a privilege to blend our vibrations with yours as you sit in meditation, and we thank you for calling us to join you, and offer our faulty and error-filled thoughts.

Upon the subject of the mark of the beast. This instrument wished us luck before she gave over control of the speaking mechanism to us, and we do indeed feel lucky to be able to speak with you about evil, for surely, the mark of the beast is only a symbol for that which is evil. Indeed, the mind often thinks in symbols rather than turning to the essence of things.

To be literal, which is of course one level of answering the question, the mark of the beast, it being 666, is a triple number, rooted in the Cabalistic traditions of your Eastern peoples. Within that tradition, the number six refers to the house of mundane things. The number six has connotations concerning finances, wealth, security and survival. If one has a penchant for luxury, the number six might be expected to figure in a numerological analysis of such an entity’s name or birth date. When a number is doubled, it is the same number but stronger, and when it is tripled, it is very strong, thus the number 666 is literally, “the things of this world.” Thus, the mark of the beast is symbolized by a number which connotes your present experience.

The group question concerned the “mark of the beast” as mentioned in the Bible. Q’uo suggested that on the literal level the mark of the beast is a symbol for what is evil and the number 6 relates to things of the mundane world which would include wealth and security. When the number is tripled to 666 it is a stronger representation of our present experience in the third-density illusion. On September 1, 2019, Q’uo spoke of the nature of the mundane world:

The consensus reality has far different means of feeling of what is valued to the seeker or to any entity upon the planet, for that which is of the mundane world is that which is held as the goal: the education, the job, the money, the status, the power. These are things which can be used positively, but most frequently are not upon this planetary sphere.

Lift your thoughts with me and let us look at this world of yours that is full of symbols of the evil of the beast; here a daisy, there a lark, here a thinking youth, and there a smiling woman. These things do not seem outwardly evil, yet for those who gaze upon the beast, the mark can be found, for the illusion is yours and each of you may choose to interpret what lies before you as you will. It is possible through description to cause the same scene to appear quite wonderful or quite the opposite by the careful use of detail. We might point out, for instance, instead of a flower, one of your refuse heaps; instead of a smiling woman, a hungry child. The choice of symbols is always yours, nor is the beast strong within one who chooses positively oriented symbols to facilitate the interpretation of catalyst.

What we are attempting to do is to indicate to you our feelings concerning prophecy. The mark of the beast is one of many symbols used within an inspired work of channeling done by the one named John. Much of this entity’s effort was involved not in offering universal symbology, but rather in sending covert information concerning specific events and entities to those known to the one known as John. The work has inspired and over-awed many, yet seldom has the deeper symbology been penetrated to discover the balance of the present moment. Such is the greatest danger of prophecy and symbology. Whatever one thinks about evil, one must cause one’s thinking to become twisted and biased in order to accommodate the eccentric symbology of the beast, its mark, its unusual body design, and its various foes. Perhaps this has kept some from gazing upon the essence of the beast.

The essence of the beast lies within each heart and within each mind. The essence of the beast is the power of denial. Just as the essence of love is the power of acceptance, so the essence of evil is the perfect ability to deny what is true and believe what is false. Thus, evil has far less to do, for instance, with money than with less-than-straightforwardness in gathering, keeping and spending money. One who is seeking the essence of the positive seeks more and more to offer the self in service. One who wishes evil may seem to offer service to others, yet always there is some denial of free will, some rejection of some aspect of universal love, some implied or stated separation between you and some other. The one who looks for advantages at another’s expense is a far clearer symbol of the beast than a number.

It has been said among your group this evening that as you sit in meditation, you live in the experience of the age of the beast, the age of universal credit and the rule of many by numbers. Remember that it is not the symbols that have power, but the essences that give the symbols power. The evil which lies within your monetary systems is an evil—that is to say a lie—which has been with you since the first money was used to make money rather than trading being done between two entities which had use of each others’ surplus. Thus, the essence of money being artificial power is an evil essence by definition. However, the technology of your age, my children, is neither good nor evil, but a tool used for good or ill.

Then Q’uo moved on to discuss the symbolism of the mark of the beast concept. Q’uo suggested that John the Baptist was sending covert messages in Revelations to his followers when he talks about the nature of the beast, but most people have not penetrated this symbology. Q’uo suggested that the deeper essence of the mark of the beast is to deny what is true and believe what is false, and all seeming service to others denies free will and universal love whereas the essence of love is the power of acceptance and true service to others. Q’uo also said that our society tends to view money as valuable when it is actually a tool, like so many others, that can easily be misused. In 23.14-.15, Ra described how money could be used to enslave people:

Questioner: Can you tell me of the reasons for the disease? I think I already know, but I think it might be good for the book to state this at this time.

Ra: I am Ra. This is, as we have mentioned before, not particularly informative with regard to the Law of One. However, the land you know of as Egypt at that time was highly barbarous in its living conditions, as you would call them. The river which you call Nile was allowed to flood and to recede, thus providing the fertile grounds for the breeding of diseases which may be carried by insects. Also, the preparation of foodstuffs allowed diseases to form. Also, there was difficulty in many cases with sources of water and water which was taken caused disease due to the organisms therein.

Questioner: I was really questioning more about the more basic cause of the disease rather than the mechanism of its transmission. I was going back to the root or thought which created the possibility of this disease. Could you shortly tell me if I am correct in assuming that the general reduction of thought over the long time on planet Earth with respect to an understanding of the Law of One created a condition in which this— what we call disease could develop? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct and perceptive. You, as questioner, begin now to penetrate the outer teachings.

The root cause in this particular society was not so much a bellicose action although there were, shall we say, tendencies, but rather the formation of a money system and a very active trading and development of those tendencies towards greed and power; thus, the enslaving of entities by other entities and the misapprehension of the Creator within each entity.

Would that we could guide you to one writing which made all things clear, one set of symbols in which there was no doubt of clear meaning, no confusion as to extraneous detail. We cannot, for there is no construction made of words and concepts which is not also a group of symbols, and in the end that which you know of good and evil abide not in symbols but in essences. Essences are felt by the deepest heart and mind of an entity so that there is recognition and knowingness of that which is, shall we say, morally pleasing and morally distasteful.

As you gaze upon this age which many find full of lies and therefore evil, look upon the essences of people, relationships and the stewardship of that which is seemingly evil—money—and find within yourself the positive truth affirming, life-affirming characteristics and attributes of people, relationships and stewardship which can be brought to bear upon each and every situation. For this is not an age—this, my children, is your age, and no mark of any beast can shape the rhythm of your own creation. That there are highly motivated, negatively oriented angelic spirits is as true as that there are highly polarized and motivated positive angelic entities.

We have no desire to play down the loyal opposition which challenges us and makes us learn to be strong. We wish only to correct any tendency towards feeling that one is in the grip of evil or in any way limited or governed by the apparent world view. To many, this is indeed the age of the beast. We find this among the peoples, this attitude of many greatly disturbed, greatly in pain, but accepting many symbols as essences. Knowing that Love created all and that the great original Thought of Love forms the heart of all that there is, we ask you to be satisfied only with the essences of things.

Thus may you find sunshine in dark places, and thus may your discrimination steer you from unexpected shadows which others may not see. It is your experience, your creation, your living we ask you to join with us in seeking the Creator, without fear and with an ever-mounting desire to touch again and again the wonderful light-filled mystery of consciousness. And now, because we have talked about a heavy word, a weighty, sad word, this symbol of despair that is evil, let us lighten our meditation before we move on. Let us release this question, for it troubles this instrument and may trouble others.

Q’uo concluded their thoughts about the mark of the beast and the use of money by suggesting that we need not focus on such events overly much even though they seem quite active in our world today. Rather, we would be better advised to look to the true essence of our being and of the true nature of creation as having being a product of the Love of the Logos. Thusly may we experience “the wonderful light-filled mystery of consciousness.” On January 15, 1989, Hatonn shared how we might experience this light-filled mystery of consciousness:

Thus, the way to passion, the way to love, is not easy, for you must along the way empty out of yourself many armorings and defenses against those things which you fear which you do not have to fear, thus freeing the attention so that it may rest upon the fundamental mystery of consciousness. Focus upon that fundamental mystery until you begin to feel the desire to experience, to know more. Let that desire build ever more.

Let us turn to gaze upon the mark of the angels. What would that be, my children—except a smile. What is the truth and symbol of the truth—except a look of joy, for that which is, is love. We leave you in that love and in the light, and would speak with you further through the one known as Jim. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I had an early appointment with my rheumatologist and took along my fasting lab report that was taken last month by my Primary Care Physician. The appointment went well, and afterwards I ran some errands with my first stop being at the vet’s where I picked up some insulin for Bosco. Then I stopped at Walgreen’s where I picked up a prescription for myself and some non-food items. When I got home I set the sprinkler to water the gardens around the fish pond while I answered emails and did some other work on future Camelot Journal entries.

This afternoon I painted the window on the north side of the double car portion of the garage.

Open That Door

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

Have you far to go this day? Do the miles seem long and weary to travel? Is there little bread and bitter herbs to eat when you come home? So it is in many souls’ experience.

The Comforter does not stop occurrences from happening within your day and within your life. It is a companion. We as a force are with you always. You cannot run faster than we can follow and we shall always bear you up within, if you but seek the comfort of divine love within.

The principle of love, the spirit of Christ, awaits you behind the door of your heart. Open that door. Go into the inner room. Feel the holiness of that ground within. And then take it to the dreary task and the difficult day and find it transformed by love.

We wish you 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 February 8, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and light through this instrument. We would at this time be honored to respond to those queries which those present may have for us. May we begin with a query?

J: Is it not true that before our incarnation into this life that we choose our own death, and it could be the case that we would use cancer or some other illness as the means of our death?

I am Q’uo, and we might suggest, my brother, that there are correctnesses and incorrectnesses in the assumptions which you have made. We shall attempt to speak to this topic. It is true that those who are aware of the process of incarnation and its purpose, due to a conscious discovery of this incarnative process during an incarnation, take a more complete role in the planning of the incarnation which is to come before the incarnation. The framework for attempting certain lessons that will enrich an entity as a whole is determined as are those services which might be shared as fruit of the effort of learning with others. There are many possibilities for each incarnation in these two general realms of endeavor, that of learning and that of serving.

Because free will is paramount within the incarnation, and indeed before, the planning must take a general form with many potential specific aspects, be they events or entities, programmed, shall we say, as possibilities and perhaps even probabilities. Many are dependent upon other choices and agreements made between entities for various times and purposes, thus there is much that is fluid and flexible, shall we say, within any incarnation that will allow for the learning of the lessons and the offering of the services.

That graduation, shall we say, from the incarnation that is called the death, in many instances is the subject of just such planning, which is to say, there is a variety of possibilities for each entity that may occur according to the completing of the overall plan for the incarnation in a more or less successful fashion. It may be said that the lessons shall continue for any entity within an incarnation until their weight grows too heavy, at which time the entity shall have planned for one means of bringing the incarnation to its culmination.

This general means of ending the incarnation may be seen as a continuing effort to gain in the polarization in consciousness which has been chosen, thus when an entity is more successful, shall we say, in the overall plan and has achieved much of that which was laid out before the incarnation, it may be that one or more potential death, as you call them, experiences are presented to the entity who by its efficiency in continuing to utilize the catalyst may yet continue within the incarnation by successfully utilizing the catalyst which could have brought about that termination of the incarnation called death.

However, it may be that an entity finds some difficulty within some portion of the incarnation, perhaps through attempting to learn too rapidly certain lessons, and may take advantage of an earlier potential terminating of the incarnation through specifically planned catalyst which when unsuccessfully processed, may result in that which you call a disease and which then might end the incarnation. Each disease, as you call them, is a symbolic representation for a certain entity or perhaps a grouping of entities, of a certain kind of lesson, thus the ending of the incarnation shall come for each within your third-density illusion. Yet the ending is not necessarily that which has been chosen to unfold in one fashion only and one time only and by one means only, yet may be that which is possible after a certain point and may be possible in a continuing fashion according to the entity’s ability to continue to process the catalyst which it has provided for itself within the incarnation.

J asked if it was possible that before our incarnations that we choose our form of death and that cancer or some other illness may become our way to die. Q’uo suggested that there was some validity to what J had stated, but since free will for all entities is always paramount that there could be many ways that one might end the incarnation. Q’uo said that when an entity became consciously aware of the incarnative process during an incarnation then it could take part in the planning of how the incarnation would unfold and also how it would end. Q’uo added that many entities make agreements with others as to how their lessons would be learned and their services offered together. As for the ending of the incarnation Q’uo suggested various possibilities such as the pre-incarnative lessons becoming too heavy so that an earlier death would be possible, or if the learning of the pre-incarnative lessons and polarization in consciousness has been achieved, that more lessons or catalyst may be undertaken and the incarnation thereby lengthened. In 71.6, Ra spoke of how an entity may eventually take part in the planning of its incarnations:

This is done entirely by the higher self until an entity has become conscious in space/time of the process and means of spiritual evolution at which time the entity will consciously take part in all decisions.

And in 106.4, Ra spoke of how Carla had pre-incarnatively planned to leave her incarnation in a natural way, which she eventually did, and then said that another time she did leave the incarnation which was also pre-incarnatively planned. (This was when she was 12 years old and had a NDE):

Questioner: How serious and critical is this renal problem? Is drinking liquids (I assume water is the best) the only thing we can do for that, or is there something else?

Ra: I am Ra. Note the interrelationship of mind and body complexes. This is one example of such interweaving of the design of catalyst and experience. The period of renal delicacy is serious, but only potentially. Should the instrument desire to leave this incarnational experience the natural and non-energized opportunity to do so has been in-built just as the period during which the same entity did, in fact, leave the incarnational experience and then return by choice was inlaid.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: Thank you for that answer. Why is it that some cultures on this planet are virtually [free] of the disease known as cancer?

I am Q’uo, and we find that this disease is one which is late to join the experience of your peoples upon this planetary sphere and, being of recent influence, has found its first roots within those cultures which are of a more individualized nature, shall we say. By this we mean that those entities which comprise the cultures which are most susceptible to utilizing this disease are those cultures in which the identity of the individual is more firmly fixed and exercised, so that the relationships which develop from such strongly characterized traits that form the personal identity are those relationships which partake less fully of cultural or tribal or primitive traditions and more fully of those situations in which emotional exercise, shall we say, is determined and amplified by individual choice. Thus, the difficulties, as you call them, which bring about the heated feelings of anger and the venting of that emotion in an uncontrolled fashion and the failure to heal those wounds which it brings about are those conditions which are most salubrious for the fostering of the condition which you call cancer.

Then J asked why some cultures on Earth are free of cancer. Q’uo replied by saying that cancer was a disease that has developed late in this planet’s evolution in cultures in which the more primitive group experience is replaced by very strongly expressed individual identities in an uncontrolled fashion which tends to bring about the feelings of anger and cause cancer. In 40.9, Ra mentioned that the vibration of the photon has recently increased in frequency and has caused thoughts to become things such as the thought of anger causing cancer:

Questioner: Has the vibration of the basic, of the photon, of all our particles increased in frequency already?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. It is this influence which has begun to cause thoughts to become things. As an example you may observe the thoughts of anger becoming those cells of the physical bodily complex going out of control to become what you call the cancer.

May we speak further, my brother?

J: No, that’s all the questions that I have for now. Thank you.

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

Carla: Thank you, no questions tonight, Q’uo. Nice to hear your voice.

I am Q’uo, and we are most grateful to those present for inviting our presence. We greatly enjoy the opportunity to join with this group and to speak our humble words and we hope that we have been able to provide some small insight into those mysteries which are so great a portion of the illusion in which you find yourselves moving ever onward in the seeking of the one Creator. We shall be with you in what you call your future and look forward to each such sharing. We shall leave this group at this time, rejoicing always in the unity of thought which binds each seeker of truth. We are known to you as those of Q’uo, and we leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai vasu borragus.

This morning I went outside and used the hose and watering wand to water the flowers along the parking area in front of the house. I also watered the hydrangea in front of the house and then set the sprinkler going in the Astilbe garden in the back corner of the yard. Then I finished painting the last part of the single car garage siding in white and touched up a few spots where I dripped the blue paint when I was painting the trim under the eaves yesterday. Then I ran some errands and picked up some food for myself at Paul’s Fruit Market. My second stop was to pick up a pizza at Hometown Pizza, and my last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I picked up a prescription for myself and some non-food items.

This afternoon I decided to paint the side door that leads into the single car part of the garage, and I also painted the lattice work under the bird feeder just outside of the living room window.

You have many seeming difficulties which rise before you like mountains of smoke, seemingly dense and impenetrable and yet seemingly unable to be grasped. It is of no avail to struggle against these difficulties, for opposition strengthens illusion.

Rather neglect them by turning your attention to your Creator and the preserver of your life, offering praise and thanksgiving to the mystery which you behold.

When you turn again in this consciousness the mountains will be there no longer, and the straight plain will offer your path no hindrance.

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 4, 1987:

What do you say to people who have cancer and are facing the possibility of death?

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo, and I greet you in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator. It is a great privilege to be with you and to be called to offer our humble service during your meditation. We are honored that you choose to ask us questions which those who seek to know the truth would surely ask. It is good to share the vibratory energies of those who seek as we do the one Creator in each aspect. For we, as you, have no greeting but love and light, for there is no impulse but thought and no manifestation but light.

Yet few are those who may greet each other in the comradeship of shared seeking and under the banner of the one infinite Creator. And may we say to you that it is our opinion that it is the experience of dwelling in trust with those who are from elsewhere who yet share the same Creator, they are the true center and have the true value that we have to offer as we answer your questions and that you have to offer as you ask them of us. For the trust we place in each other is a symbol of our attempt to grasp our unity, one with another and our common identification as the Creator.

The sharing of beingness and consciousness is indeed a powerful thing and we take this opportunity to thank you; nor should you fear if your numbers are small and your meditation circle is not vast, or even if you sit alone. Yet still, if you know and claim the witness of unseen friends, the light that you may raise in meditation is enormously powerful. We hope this has set up that which we wish to say about advice to those who must speak to cancer victims.

Before beginning to answer the question of what do you say to one who has cancer and is facing the possibility of death, Q’uo described the general framework of concepts that would aid in their thoughts about speaking upon the question for this session. Q’uo began to describe how helpful it is to share the common seeking of the one Creator with those from elsewhere, and in meditation the light of these unseen friends is powerful even if the number of those in the circle is small as all are the Creator. I believe that these entities from elsewhere are wanderers which are also known as the Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow. In 12.26, Ra spoke of these Brothers and Sisters of sorrow:

Thank you. Well, you spoke of wanderers. Who are wanderers? Where do they come from?

I am Ra.

Imagine, if you will, the sands of your shores. As countless as the grains of sand are the sources of intelligent infinity.

When a social memory complex has achieved its complete understanding of its desire, it may conclude that its desire is service to others with the distortion towards reaching their hand, figuratively, to any entities who call for aid. These entities, whom you may call the Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow, move towards this calling of sorrow. These entities are from all reaches of the infinite creation and are bound together by the desire to serve in this distortion.

My children, it is difficult to penetrate the illusion of life or death while living in such an artificially delicate and cumbersome mechanism as the physical vehicles which you enjoy during your Earthly experience. The nature of experience is interestingly mazed. Seemingly positive and happy experiences are oftentimes of little depth, times when thought processes are slowed and intellectual, spiritual and physical senses dulled, whereas difficult times and crises, seemingly so appalling as experiences, often produce excitement, revivification of heart and mind and soul, rededication and renewal of stewardship and service commitments.

When you receive the news of a known killer which has been found within your physical body, you are naturally going to spend an ocean of tears wept or unwept, a ton of words said and unsaid, railing against and being angry about the cessation of life. Yet in the crisis of possible death lies a tremendous opportunity for the rededication of the life. For news of a possible death is a creative disturbance, a freeing mechanism which allows the one experiencing it to consider a wider variety of options with more seriousness than when the entity thought he was perfectly healthy. There is an opportunity not to be afraid. There is the opportunity to turn into one who celebrates the life lived in the present moment.

Such an entity, having found a center of joy and peace in the appreciation of many blessings, notes with keen accuracy the difficulties of the present moment without becoming discouraged because of the debit side of the balance sheet. Thus, refraining from dwelling upon possible futures, yet inspired by the possible future of depth to the amendment of the attitude at the present moment, the seeker who wishes to transform the experience of cancer may begin by affirming and celebrating each day as it awakens. This is not an exercise to use merely during periods of potential death. It is an exercise for life, not for death, for each day may be lived far more fully and with far more enjoyment and freedom, spontaneity and humor than most among your peoples are able to manifest. For the negative emotions and blockages color and bias the experience in negative ways. Any entity may choose to begin to shape the life experience for the self and by so choosing may become a more and more polarized entity.

Then Q’uo got to the heart of the matter of how the illusion of the life or death of the physical body can be a means by which the difficult experiences of a disease such as cancer can give the seeker more opportunities to rededicate one to true life. They suggested that one can use the present moment to experience the joy of the day and an exercise for developing the love of life. On October 12, 1986, Latwii spoke of the power of the present moment:

Of course, my brother, you are aware that the meditative state is that state which offers the easiest access to such present moment experiences, for such experiences of the power of the present moment and the perfection of one’s being are those which become available to an entity when there is no coloration of past or future or thought of any kind to form a filter through which the present moment must be perceived.

Thus, within the present moment experience one may, in a manner of speaking, not only recharge the battery of one’s personal energy, but may discover that that battery is fully charged at all times, and in this discovery and from this discovery one may then move into the daily round of activities inspired and ennobled, shall we say, so that the ability to utilize what has been learned is enhanced and the ability to gather further lessons available in each present moment is also enhanced.

We turn to look at some practical matters. We realize that, as we scan this instrument, we look at two providers whose families are dependent upon money earned by one potentially not able to provide. We would speak to those who fear that there is not a plentiousness of all things—the remembrance of friends, strangers who smile, individuals who unpredictably but generously may aid an unknown person. It is well to put one’s thoughts not on the lacks of one’s incarnation, especially when these lacks are beyond one’s control, but to focus one’s interest and energy upon the assets of the same situation.

If one needs not worry about money beyond a certain point, in other words, if one values one’s life and feels that the environment of the livelihood has contributed to the illness, then it is time to use the creative energy of difficult situations to view the needs, the true needs of the social unit of which the entity is a part. It is well to meditate and find out for the self whether the lesson is to stay and learn to love or to move towards a greater love and faith, but with small practical and earthly expectations.

We are not those who advise reckless moves for the sake of testing the faith, yet deep within each entity there lies a sure knowledge of the rightness of each step of the life plan. Within each at this moment lies a knowledge that the entity is on the path which has been set or not. To arrive at contact with that level of self-awareness is a blessing and it usually earned. You must seek to know yourself as if you truly and honestly like and respect yourself. You cannot plunder the self anymore than you would insult a high priestess. In each other area of practical earthly endeavor, think, meditate and discuss with the family unit which you have made those things which are for and not for you.

And then, when the thinking has been done, the centering and the clearing and the grasping of the feelings of the self have been accomplished, put aside the consciousness of the dying, and realize that that which is in a disease such as cancer is allowed because your emotional and mental complex were not able to love and instead blocked love in some situation. This is a mechanical rather than a judgmental description and refers to the fact that illness in general results when the body reacts to a loss of electrical and chemical balance within the body complex. The body then, as manifesting illness, is attempting to heal itself and so-called illness is indeed a process of health by positive and affirmative attention to the present moment the many blessings which are experienced in that moment and both the wonder and the terrible mystery of life and death.

One may transform the experience of serious illness into the beginning of a new consciousness, one which is closer to that which may be held within the illusion you now enjoy and after you leave that same illusion. Would you wish to change personalities because you change bodies? Or would you prefer to be more and more truly yourself, more and more fully a manifestation of the truth about yourself, more and more an opening through which the love and the light of the infinite Creator shine forth, not to impress, but to make joyful?

Q’uo then turned to more practical matters of having to consider that cancer might seem to remove the ability of one to provide for the family, but Q’uo suggested that it might be well for such a person to look at its work environment and meditate and see if there is a healthier situation that might provide a more healing atmosphere one which allows the entity to love itself and transform the illness to a new consciousness that allows the love and light of the Creator to shine forth through the entity. For this to happen one must truly seek to know one’s self and love one’s self. On October 5, 2003, Q’uo described the value of the process of getting to know and love the self:

In reality, much of getting to know the self is not pushing the self around as much as it is gently sitting around the campfire with all of these different parts of self and allowing each to tell its story. For there is good in many different points of view within, all of which may come together in ways that are not helpful. Yet each item within the mix is helpful to consider, helpful to gaze at, perhaps over time. It is a subtle thing to become more familiar with the self without judging the self, and this is the goal of one who is attempting to free up those stuck places within. Once one is relatively balanced within the energy body from red, orange and yellow then the heart is able to get full energy and that full blast of unconditional love that the Creator puts out in infinite quantity and quality at all times. Energy is finally able to move through into the heart in a powerful way.

Perhaps we have rambled a bit this evening, my children. At times it was necessary that we say a few things quickly through this instrument that we might keep her at an appropriate level. We thank you for your patience and it is our hope that each may see the centrality of affirming and celebrating the Creator in the self and the self in the Creator. Who each of us is is hid complete in who the Creator is and the truth of us is the truth of the Creator.

Let us all turn then to that great light that shines in the darkness of ignorance and chaos which is much of the illusion about you, and seize hold of the central search. Life and death mean very little compared to the song of the present, for to breathe is to sing. Each soft rustle of inhalation and exhalation makes a melody in the ether of creation and sends motes of light in millions of directions with each breath, moving and moving the particles of light. Each intentional prayer is a lovely song and each silence a poem.

Who you are is not how you feel, what the condition of your body is, what your bank account is or where you live. More deep ties are those of family, friend and companion. Yet in the end, the seeker stands alone with the truth and each seeker is as infinitely great and potentially infinitely impeccable as that great warrior, the creation Itself.

We are those of Q’uo and we humbly thank you for having asked us to be with you this evening. We leave our blessing and love with each and with each about whom questions were, asking, as always, that it be understood that we are not infallible. We would attempt to open the group to questions, and shall transfer to the one known as Jim. We leave this instrument with thanks and in love and light. I am Q’uo.

This morning I ran some errands with my first stop at Walmart to buy some nails. My second stop was at Feeder’s Supply to buy birdseed. My third stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store to buy some ice cream and some non-food items.

This afternoon I continued painting the south side of the single car garage. I was able to get the blue trim just below the eves repainted as well as the side door entrance and the framing around the window. Then I painted the area below the trim with white paint and got a little more than half way done. I will try to finish the white painting tomorrow.  

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

September 10

Your Essence Is Spirit

I am the Comforter and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

May peace fall like dew upon you this day, no matter what the outer situation. May you experience, and continue to experience, the inner peace which no disaster of humankind can destroy.

Within the Father’s love there is a peace which comes from eternity and which is the vehicle for your own imperishable spirit. Rest quietly in the knowledge of that peace, no matter how quickly you run, no matter how many tangles of human relationships you encounter.

Touch always the peace within, for the Comforter does not fail. It is only those whose hearts are puzzled and befuddled by that which occurs that are not able to hear words of comfort and to feel the presence of that peace which passeth all understanding.

We feel that it would help each if each would think of itself not as one attempting to be a spiritual being but as one who is, in essence, spirit. That being accepted, the point of view may shift so that the spiritual door may be opened to peace more easily and the hubbub and turmoil of a wrangling world may be set off from you by the buffer of comfort, peace and faith.

For we are of the principle of Jesus the Christ. We are of the spirit of living love. And we are eternal, as are you, and exist only to interact with you in positive ways that bring each spirit more and more light and less and less confusion.

We leave you in peace, both 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 25, 1987:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and we are pleased to greet you again in love and light through this instrument. At this time it is our privilege to offer ourselves in the service of attempting to respond to any further queries which those gathered may have value in the asking. We remind each that we offer but our opinions and ask that these be taken as such. May we begin with a query?

Carla: What would you say to someone who is having physical difficulties that make it kinda hard to get around and feel some despair over the future? Besides “don’t do that”?

I am Q’uo, and we are aware, my sister, that this question has special meaning to your own experience. And we would suggest that it be remembered at all times that one moves within the limitless love of the Creator within this illusion in order that through your experience the Creator might become aware of the possibilities for love to be placed in situations that will require an increased experience of Itself in order to uncover that love which has been carefully hidden. Thus does the Creator find Its beingness expressed in your experience in manners vivid and pure as a result of the constant effort to uncover Its own face through your efforts.

Thus does the Creator move within the tiniest, the grandest, the most joyful and the most difficult of circumstances in order to enable each seeker at every portion of its journey to both become aware of the ever-present sustenance of the love of the Creator when appropriate and also to find those times within the experience of an incarnation when the price, shall we say, for such joyful discovery is far greater in order that that discovery might be imbedded more deeply and securely within the seeker’s total being. Thus, one may see a relationship evolve in which the more difficult seeking provides the opportunity for the more deeply experienced and securely seated revelation of love and unity which ever underlie all experience. Thus, that which is cheaply bought is easily forgotten; that which bears the greater price is that which remains as sure foundation stones upon further experience and service of the One is possible.

Carla asked Q’uo what they would have to say to a person who had physical difficulties that made getting around difficult and hopes for the future diminished. I have a hunch she was talking about herself as she had constant pain from rheumatoid arthritis for most of her life. Basically, Q’uo said that Carla’s experience of pain was another way for the Creator to know more about Itself, and in that way Carla was serving the Creator. On October 15, 1991, Q’uo described a multitude of ways that an entity may serve the Creator:

Each of you is a portion of the infinite Creator. Each of you is precisely equal—the murderer, the rapist, the saint, and the fool. For each of you has the entire constellation of possibilities within, and it has been with each a matter of choice after choice after choice as to how to live the life, how to serve the Creator, how to practice the presence of the Creator, and how to serve others, perhaps the most difficult question of all.

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: No. Thank you very much, Q’uo.

I am Q’uo. We thank you, my sister. Might there be another query?

H: Yeah, I have something I’ve been thinking about for a few months now. In our Bible, it’s got in the last days that there will be the final conflict or the final war, the war of all wars. And after that it said there’ll be something like a thousand years of peace. Could you elaborate on that statement?

I am Q’uo, and within this work of which you speak, we find the beginning recognition of the quality of existence that shall fall unto those who remain within the loving guidance, shall we say, of the free and joyful expression of love, one for another. Those who shall find their own experience producing the fruit of love and compassion shall enter upon a journey which, within the work you have described, was able to be perceived as the thousand years of peace.

Yet in truth, my brother, we might suggest that this time has no such shortened boundaries, but refers to a level of existence in which the love of the Creator becomes ever more apparent and powerful within the personal incarnation and is seen without doubt to be that which undergirds all creation and experience within the creation. Each entity within this level of experience shall find that the doors of perception are swung wide until the heart is filled full of the creative and compassionate energy of the Creator and is given freely to those about one in a fashion which knows no boundaries and is the result of the simple beingness and natural expression of that beingness for each seeker.

H asked Q’uo to elaborate on a statement in the Bible that in the last days there will be the war of all wars, and then there would be a thousand years of peace. Q’uo didn’t actually speak of a “war to end all wars” but said that the “quality of existence that shall fall unto those who remain within the loving guidance, shall we say, of the free and joyful expression of love, one for another.” Q’uo said that this experience of love would not have a limit of time but could be described as the thousand years of peace.  On September 5, 2010, Hatonn spoke of this thousand years of peace:

From our perspective, which is limited, we would suggest that the “one-thousand-year time period” is symbolic of a beginning experience of peace within the human heart that will be infinite in its nature, so that it is a steady state, no longer subject to what you may call the trials and tribulations of the choice-making density, the path having been chosen, the feet firmly planted thereupon, and the will strengthened to persevere. The journey shall be undertaken in strength of purpose in joyful, glad tidings of the heart.

May we speak further, my brother?

H: No, that answers that quite well. I just have one more comment on the same statement. Would the seventy-five thousand year cycle actually end upon the end of this era, then?

I am Q’uo, and this is correct, my brother, for the cycle which is now reaching its culmination upon your planetary sphere has provided the opportunity for those within its boundaries to move the conscious perception of the creation far enough to allow a greater experience to follow. The ability of each seeker within your illusion has been developed to the point during its seventy-five thousand year cycle where it is now possible for each seeker to welcome and enjoy the greater intensity of light that shall be presented within the fourth-density experience.

Then H asked if the third-density cycle of 75,000 years would end at the same time as this thousand years of peace. Q’uo suggested that this was possible since each seeker of truth would have evolved far enough on their spiritual path to be able to enjoy the fourth-density vibrations of light. I believe that Q’uo is talking about those seekers who have made the Choice of service to others and not those third-density entities who are in what Ra called the sinkhole of indifference. In 17.31, Ra gave the requirements for harvest into the fourth density:

Questioner: In the book Oahspe it states that if an individual is more than fifty percent for others— that is, goes over the 50% service to others, and is less than fifty percent for service to self, then he is harvestable. Is this a correct statement?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct if the harvesting is to be for the positive fourth dimensional level.

May we speak further, my brother?

H: No, I think that took care of that. Thank you.

Carla: Okay, one last one for me. I wondered if you could comment on just what the spiritual impact of Shirley MacLaine’s TV special was on the consciousness of this planet?

I am Q’uo. And we look upon the event of which you speak as that which is likened unto a great and shining light in a sea of darkness. Yet, if one perceives carefully this sea of darkness, one begins to note many lights flickering in various portions of the darkness. Each light burns of an intensity which each seeker has produced according to the desire to know that which you know as the truth. Events such as the airing of the program of which you speak are seen within the metaphysical realm as a great and shining light which for a brief period of your experience illuminates the darkness to the extent where all inhabiting that darkness are able for that moment to perceive carefully outlined shadows of truth. In this momentary perception and possibility for perception, the light which burns either dimly or brightly within all who inhabit your illusion finds a greater intensity possible for that moment that may, if empowered with personal desire to continue the seeking, allow the light to burn more brightly after the event has passed.

Many there are who find within the incarnation for the first time the opportunity to experience the birthing of desire to know what lies beyond the boundaries of previous perceptions. Many others who have felt this yearning begin are reinforced in their seeking to move their own consciousness beyond their self-made limitations of perceptions. Others who have yet to discover the desire to move beyond such boundaries consider for a moment that such might be possible, and though the thought passes quickly, each shall within the deeper being remember that moment in order that the momentary interest which was experienced might, at what you would call a future date, find another potential for birthing. And when enough of these opportunities have been noticed by the entity, there may in that entity be born that same desire to know the truth, and the light of that entity then will begin to glow ever more brighter, fed in even a small part by each experience which has been provided the entity within its incarnation to spark the beginning yearnings to know the meaning of the incarnation and of experiences such as the program of which you speak.

Thus, there can only be greater light result from light which is freely given. Its work moves at its own pace as is appropriate within each seeker’s incarnation. When the student is ready the teacher, in whatever form, appears, be it a book, a person, a television program or experience within the daily round of activities.

Carla asked what the impact on the planet was as a result of Shirley MacLaine’s TV special which was shown in 1987 and was titled “Out on a Limb,” which referred to her spiritual awakening. Q’uo began their response by saying that the program was as a light in the darkness that was able to aid others seekers of truth and help their lights to shine more brightly. Q’uo also said that this greater feeling of the purpose of the incarnation would also cause those who had not yet begun their spiritual journeys to consider doing so after viewing the light of Shirley MacLaine’s television special. In 1.10, Ra gave the general principle of how sharing one’s light aids everyone:

The few whom you will illuminate by sharing your light are far more than enough reason for the greatest possible effort. To serve one is to serve all.

Therefore, we offer the question back to you to state that indeed it is the only activity worth doing: to learn/teach or teach/learn. There is nothing else which is of aid in demonstrating the Original Thought except your very being, and the distortions that come from the unexplained, inarticulate, or mystery-clad being are many. Thus, to attempt to discern and weave your way through as many group mind/body/spirit distortions as possible among your peoples in the course of your teaching is a very good effort to make. We can speak no more valiantly of your desire to serve.

May we speak further, my sister?

Carla: No, thank you.

I am Q’uo. We thank you.

H: I have one more question concerning Shirley MacLaine, about the gentleman named David. Did he ever have contact with Maya again, what he was so much seeking?

I am Q’uo, and am again with this instrument. We find that this entity has experienced the presence of the one of whom you speak in a fashion which is not the person-to-person physical vehicle contact, but which is that more of the nature now being expressed as we communicate our thoughts through this instrument. The entity, David, has satisfied itself that this is the most desirable form of contact for this time within its incarnational pattern. However, we cannot speak as to the future as you call it, for this [we] see as an infringement upon free will.

May we speak further, my brother?

H: No, thank you, that’s all.

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


I am Q’uo, and we thank each for allowing our presence this evening. We have been very honored to be able to join this group and to respond to those queries which have been placed before us with loving care. We ask that if our presence be desired in your meditations that a simple request will find us joining you there. We shall leave this group at this time, rejoicing and giving praise that we are able to join you on your journey of seeking. We leave each 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 vasu borragus.

This morning I got the chairs in the living room in place for the attendees of our first public channeling meditation for the new season. Then I ran some errands with my first stop being at the bank to make a cash withdrawal. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself.

This afternoon we had our public channeling meditation which began at 1 pm. It was good to see some old friends and some new ones as well. There were so many synchronicities experienced as we talked on our round robin to get our meeting started. As each person talked about what spiritual experiences they had in the last few days, weeks, or months we found that we had so much in common in the most expected of ways. The questions that were asked also were of the very highest quality, and I thought that Q’uo’s answers were very helpful as well.

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

September 9

Each Is Your Brother

I am the spirit of the living Christ which speaks to the world this day, greeting you in the full consciousness of divine love.

The many preparatory and studious engagements of those serious, spiritual seekers who labor to learn the love of the Christ are well meant and may yet yield fruit. Yet, paradoxically, it is not the one always who strives the hardest, thinks the most or works more laboriously than others to whom the inspiration, the love, and the clarity of vision that infinite love offers, comes.

 Many times it is the one who is unassuming and humble, who accepts the basic unworthiness of free will while recognizing the necessity of it, who may choose and choose and choose again the way of love, the way of the Christ.

Therefore stride self-confidently into the world but be ye humble and not over-assuming, for each entity is likewise the Father within, just as you are. Each is your brother. Each is your sister. None contains that which you do not contain. Sometimes it is possible to try too hard to be loving and blessed, sanctified and giving. Relax into the rhythm of spontaneous service and life shall become merry and light.

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.
