I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from June 26, 1994:

The question this afternoon is from N, and after listening to a lot of our tapes, he says that it looks to him like there are three selves in incarnation: the higher self, the incarnational self and the illusional self, which he describes as basically the genetic material biased by the culture, and he would like to have a discourse on these three selves, and their relationship to each other, and I think we might want to correct the incarnational self and the illusional self as being sort of aspects of the same self, and we might want to add the soul that exists before the incarnation. If Q’uo would like to add any other selves, or subtract, we would be happy to listen, and… that’s it!

(Carla channeling)

Greetings. We are those of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. May we thank each for calling us to your circle of seeking this working. We are humbly pleased to have the opportunity of sharing concepts with you concerning your question. As always, we request that each who hears or reads may identify for the self those things which we have to offer to that self, for each entity has its own set of personal truths which speak to that place where that one spirit is at this particular moment. Therefore, take that which is of use at this moment and leave the rest behind.

When you ask us to speak concerning the various selves of a third-density human you ask us to take on a story of movement in well conceived and fastidiously executed patterns which describe what could be seen as an elliptical or circular process, in which tremendous amounts of time and space fall away from the present moment for incredible stretches of time and space. The relatively short period of the third-density cycle is preceded by tremendously long, unimaginably lengthy terms of space and time. And, similarly, after this third density experience, the continuing refining of choices made in this density are the agenda for millions of years of learning and service.

The first self, of course, is the great Self which is the one original Thought, Love itself, that infinite and creative principle from whose riches all who are self-aware have drawn not only the outer trappings of Creatorhood, but indeed the inmost essence of the infinite Creator. This great Self has no way to communicate Its essence. Consequently, in the fullness of free will, there comes that time of creativity wherein an octave of creation is begun with the sending forth of that which is One, that it might take upon Itself the partnership with manifestation which is the very fabric of space and time.

Out of space and time, then, is created by Light all that may be called so, and all that may be used by the self to move forward in that lengthy journey away from that great source of all that there is into more and more thickness of illusion, until that great Earth plane which you now experience is reached and the stuff of earth, air, wind, and fire becomes self-aware and self-determining.

Thusly, the first self is your true self, and that is the great Self. However, since the experience of self as the great Self is not available to most within third density, the examination of it is in this context unnecessary. Certainly, when that which you now perceive as self is born, when that impregnating of consciousness with self-awareness occurs, and the seeker as a new, self-aware consciousness—we correct this instrument—point or spark of consciousness enters the first of many incarnations within third density, that new self represents all of the instinctual selfhood of the creature which is the physical vehicle for humankind, and as the process of living, feeling, and sensing and experiencing begins, various distortions come to be within that selfhood in a repetitive manner, so that at the beginning of each birth, there is a self-entering birth which has already been biased and distorted in a lasting way by previous choices made during previous incarnations.

Each incarnation, then, is not only an opportunity to learn lessons of love, it is further an opportunity to emphasize those biases found within the self which are considered by the self to be positive or helpful. The self also has the opportunity to look again at each and every distortion which is pre-incarnative, which seems to have sprung from birth, rather than from incarnational experience, and to decide differently, thus loosening the framework of thinking and ideation, and reshaping it in small or large degree. Thusly, there is the opportunity, as a conscious being within incarnation, to use the consciousness that has been attained to look at the self, to look at the harvest of self anew and to have such an openness of mind that it will be possible for the self to work effectively upon the self.

N wanted Q’uo to comment on the higher self, the incarnational self, and the illusional self, but it was decided that the illusional self and incarnational self were probably the same, and perhaps the soul should also be discussed. Q’uo began their reply by giving an overview of the process of evolution of the Creator through millions of years of experience before and after the third density. They went on to say that the Creator used Its Free Will to focus through the power of Love to create the Light of all objects in space and time and the octave of densities that began with the first density of earth, wind, fire, and water. So, Q’uo said that our first self is our true self which is the Self of the Creator which most entities within the third density will not experience, so Q’uo said that it was not necessary to get into a discussion of it. Then Q’uo said that when the third density self is born as a consciousness into the instinctual awareness of a physical body, then the process of many incarnations will begin which will allow the third-density self to make choices and learn the lessons of love. Q’uo said that many of these lessons are pre-incarnatively chosen and allow the self to work effectively upon the self in order to obtain the harvest to the fourth density. On October 27, 1985, L/Leema spoke of the lessons of love:

It is rather the salient lesson and ambiance, if we may, of your illusion that entities work upon the lessons of love. Those lessons include the seemingly foolish giving of self without expectation of return, the movement within darkness with the faith that the Love of the one Creator exists in each portion of that darkness without knowing any fact for sure and yet giving wholly of the self regardless of the not being able to know. Yet do entities learn the lessons of love.

It is not likely that any within your illusion will move much past the lesson of love. Thus the recommendation to each is that one give wholeheartedly the truest and best of one’s treasures, that is, to give without consideration of return, and to give with the greatest intention to serve that one can find.

Now, the eternal or spiritual self, to use a general term, is only to a very small extent differing from that self which the query called the illusional self. The difference, however, seems quite large to the self-aware being, for it seems that there is an enormous chasm between the infinite self and the self within incarnation. However, there is the continuing difficulty of the subject observing itself. Selfhood tends to keep the self from seeing clearly into its own nature. Thusly, each entity may be of service to others by reflecting honestly and clearly for others that which is being received. Others have the gift to give you of this reflection.

Thus, we always encourage the listening ear and the understanding heart when entities are attempting to communicate, especially concerning relationships. For it is the gift of each to each that in communication a more objective or unbiased viewpoint might be had by all. Each has gifts of this kind to give, and each has much to receive, even from those who seem to be negatively impressed and critical. Open the ears always when this occurs, for perhaps truth may lie there, and perhaps freedom might come from a new perception of this truth.

For with each other’s help the incarnational self attempts more and more to conform its vibrational pattern to that one original pattern of great Selfhood. This is the object, to match the vibrational characteristics of the one infinite Creator. All of self-perceived selfhood is an illusion. All of creation is an illusion. There is nothing here. There is nothing there. There is only everything, and it takes up no time, nor space.

So, the distinction betwixt the self between incarnations and the self during incarnations is in fact a subcategory. An even smaller difference exists betwixt these two. But in terms of the work of incarnation, the difference is, of course, most telling. The times of meditation which we encourage are those opportunities wherein the self within incarnation is able to link up with those selves before, those lives before, and that self which more and more has become articulated through the continuing process of reincarnation. That self’s great desire is to move back into unpotentiated great Selfhood.

So, as incarnational beings, as incarnational selves, we relate to the self between incarnations as one who knows no secrets would relate to the twin, shall we say, or the fellow who knows all the secrets. So much within an incarnation, especially toward the end of a cycle, is already determined by the great weight of previous choice, that the memories of all that has gone before almost have more confusion to offer than riches to consider. However, we encourage the use of both meditative periods and sleeping and dreaming to more and more easily link into the self that exists between incarnations. While it is not the great Self, being a biased entity, it does nevertheless have much of wisdom which it aids entities to link up with within incarnation.

It is not so much the knowledge of what has happened in past lives that helps as it is the seating and grounding of the self from the part which blooms in incarnation down to the roots of that being which lie within that portion of your consciousness which carries all memory of previous lifetimes and other deep awarenesses such as the archetypical.

So we would encourage a model in which the incarnational human may be seen to be the bloom that arises and shall return to the elements which are used to create the personhood and walk it about on two legs. This blooming of self is related to its roots which feed and nourish it. That root is the abiding self, not yet the great Self, but that unfinished but heavily biased self which has learned, and relearned, and relearned many lessons already. There are things within this bloom which the roots wished to extirpate from the entire plant. There are ways of blooming which the roots hoped would become clear to this particular bloom, and that root of being roots down through all the illusion of all the incarnative selves and all the incarnations and becomes all that there is.

Now Q’uo said that the eternal, spiritual self was similar to the illusional self, but that this was difficult for the self-aware being to see, so it is helpful for each person to help others to reflect who each is as this is a gift all have to give each other. They said that this was helpful for everyone to see that they are a portion of the one Creator as all is an illusion, and within the relationships with others all are more able to match the vibration of the Creator. Q’uo suggested using meditation to make the connection between the incarnated self and the self before the incarnation so that the self’s desire to move back into the uncreated Selfhood may be realized. Then Q’uo said that working with sleep and dreams was also a way to connect with the self that exists between incarnations and discover more information to share about the nature of the self as the great Self seen in the way of the archetypical self in the roots of consciousness. Q’uo completed their thoughts by saying that the incarnational self could be seen as the bloom of a flower that is fed by its roots, and all of this information gives a fuller picture to the incarnated self of all of the incarnations so that it may become all that there is. On June 27, 1993, Q’uo described the nature of how we are all that there is:

The Creator created a great original Expression or Thought. This we have called the Logos, or Love. This principle, this Love, created all that there is by the quantizing articulation of Light. Yet all that is created is of the nature of its parent source, which is Love. The reason for offering love, appreciation, a blessing and thanksgiving to the infinite One is that the entity within incarnation is attempting to form its vibratory frequency more and more like that of the vibrational frequency of the one great original Thought, which is Love. The closer the seeker comes to matching that vibratory frequency, the more that entity will be perceived as offering praise and thanksgiving. This is true far beneath any articulation of words or even what you consider thoughts. Rather, it is in the nature of the way creation is built. That is, the original Thought expresses in Love, thanks, blessing, praise and rejoicing. Thusly, it is not a Creator hungry for praise and thanks that requires homage of its worshippers, but rather it is Love, it is reflected in love, and in that infinite reflection lies truth.

At this time we would transfer this contact to the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument as we leave it. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I went outside and noticed that during the night we got over three inches of rain, which was such a blessing, but it also reduced the height of the fountain because of the additional water in the fishpond. So I pumped out just enough water to get the fountain back to its greatest height without hitting the schemer box and splashing out of the pond.

This afternoon I went outside and began weeding using my trimmer in various parts of the yard instead of weeding by hand at this time because the ground is too wet to walk or kneel upon.

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

July 10

Be The Light

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

You, as you gaze at yourself, cannot see that you are the light of the world. Disturbed with your own difficulties, confused about priorities, and in general bogged down in the waste, the paperwork, and the uselessness of many daily activities, it is easy to forget, and it is easy to relinquish your birthright.

Your birthright is to be sons and daughters of the one infinite Creator. You are the light of the world. Know and feel this in your heart. Know that through the grace of this principle which we represent, all your efforts shall be comforted and supported.

Do not think too little of yourself. Be the light of the world in gladness, joy, and singleness of mind and heart. Remember that which you are here to do: love each other. May you shine with the radiance of the Christ.

We are with you always in comfort and in the peace of unconditional love, now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo channeling comes from June 19, 1994:

One way of progressing on the service-to-others path is by biasing our balance and then balancing our biases. These biases are brought to our attention by our perception of events and offer catalyst for processing. Eventually one profits by seeing the Creator in all and radiating love and acceptance in that reality. It appears that the construct of the mind is of such a nature that processing painful catalysts are engraved in the subconscious in a much firmer and more definite fashion than those learned by experiencing joy or happiness. Why did a loving Creator allow the constructs that learn more effectively with pain rather than with joy?

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. We greet you with joy as you rest in meditation this day to speak with you concerning joy and sorrow, gain and loss, illusion and truth. It is, as always, a distinct privilege to share your meditation, to blend our energies with your own, and to join you in the circle of seeking for this working. As always, examine our concepts with the ear for the recognition of personal truth. Lay any thoughts which do not seem appropriate for you to one side. For this we thank you.

The nature of third density is primarily dictated by the lessons which have been prepared for each seeker to walk with. And for the goal towards which these lessons point, that basic nature of your illusion is division into opposites, for yours is the density of choice. Yours is an illusion rich in either/or. The raw material which you bring to this illusion is itself duple. On the one hand, you bring to these lessons a physical, mental, emotional complex of great instinctual beauty, symmetry, and harmony. The physical vehicle of third density is unimaginably rich in sense perceptions. At all times the inner eye is filled with an enormous variety of sense perceptions. These are instinctually prioritized and held in an instinctual state of balance. This is that second-density creature which has accepted the role of carrying your consciousness about for this incarnative experience.

In return for all of the unimaginable wealth of sensations and perceptions the physical body asks in return that it be tended, and this tending is established as a large and pivotal activity throughout third-density experience. The right use of this instinctual vehicle constantly remains an issue to the seeker.

To this density has been brought also the infinite, eternal, creative consciousness which is within the Creator and which, as you hear these words, is experiencing that which the instinctual body offers and then perhaps having the awareness to reprioritize the wealth of sense perceptions made available by the instinctual body. Thusly, your very physical situation holds a dichotomy which may be seen to be peculiarly vulnerable to choices. The beginning of third density rests in the either/or of spiritual or physical, eternal or time bound. At this level one does not view good or evil, positive or negative. Rather, one is viewing the temporary as opposed to the eternal. The Creator—that creative principle of Love in which all reside—rests within the infinite intelligence of unpotentiated Love.

However, each individualized spark of this Love experiences time, space, and within your density, choices, whereas the truth rests always in peace. The seeker of truth, time and space-bound within the physical incarnation, must place one foot ahead of the other, moment by moment, day by day, revolving about that truth which lies imminent within each moment, constantly having the opportunity to gaze into the present moment in such a way that sense perceptions are reprioritized in order to maximize the effectiveness of the choices available in that moment.

Always, there is the choice between that which lies upon the surface and that which lies beneath, beyond, and through the surface unto the deepest profundity of awareness. We have often said that the journey of the seeker is one from the head to the heart. When the perceptions of the moment are evaluated by one drifting upon the surface of the moment there is fairly constantly the making of choices which maximize comfort. We do not imply that there is something wrong with comfort. We simply point out that comfort or happiness is neither joy or sorrow, but simply comfort. That which most entities call joy is actually no more than a surface degree of comfort and ease within which one may rest and enjoy the illusion. With this we find absolutely nothing amiss. It is only that the state of mind which is comfortable runs directly counter to that state of mind in which the seeker may make choices.

It is not that sorrow, loss, and limitation are the only means of learning the lessons of love and polarizing towards the infinite Creator’s vibration, but, rather, that few indeed are the entities which are willing, in the absence of pain, to do the intensive work which is needed to attain an acceleration of the polarization process using joy as catalyst.

Here is how to be joyful. Upon the arising, turn to the infinite One and instant by instant turn again to the infinite One, again and again, in all things giving thanks, in all conditions rejoicing. Turn again to the infinite One and rest in that peace which truly the world does not know. Joy is a living energy as powerful and as effective a teacher as sorrow. However, it demands of the seeker a self-imposed discipline of the personality which looks beyond ease and comfort and energizes and exhorts the self again and again unceasingly to rejoice, give praise and offer thanksgiving to the infinite One.

One of your teachers known as Joel Goldsmith has called this joyful path “practicing the presence of the one infinite Creator.” The path of joy is equally as effective as the path of sorrow. Yet, if the seeker is truly upon the path of joy there is the same degree of creative unrest in this process that there is while undergoing the catalyst of losses, limitations and grief. This is the road not taken, the path of joy. If you would be good at this path, learn to be dissatisfied with happiness and count all things as loss except turning again to praise and give thanks to the one infinite Creator. If the intensity of desire can be maintained while there is an absence of negative catalyst, then the negative catalyst is not necessary. You may see that, indeed, few there are who are able to walk this particular path to the infinite One.

The group question for this session was: “It appears that the construct of the mind is of such a nature that processing painful catalysts are engraved in the subconscious in a much firmer and more definite fashion than those learned by experiencing joy or happiness. Why did a loving Creator allow the constructs that learn more effectively with pain rather than with joy?” Q’uo began their reply by saying that our third-density illusion is an experience of opposites, of either/or, because it is the density of choice. Then Q’uo said that in the third density we live within the physical body that has a wealth of sense perceptions to share with our consciousness which then prioritizes these perceptions either in the spiritual or physical nature, which could also be seen as the eternal or time bound nature. Q’uo continued by saying that each seeker experiences time, space, and choices on a daily basis whereas the truth is found in peace, so the seeker must perceive the sense perceptions and continue making the most effective choices within this present moment of peace. Q’uo went on to say that instead of remaining on the surface of seeking comfort, it is important to move to deeper levels of awareness in order to make choices which deal with sorrow, loss, and pain that help the seeker learn the lessons of how to move from the head to the heart. However, Q’uo also said that it was possible to reach the same goal by using joy in the repeated giving of praise and thanksgiving to the one Creator throughout the day, and this discipline would allow the seeker to know a peace that the world knows not. Q’uo said that the paths of sorrow and joy are equally effective as the path of joy can be successful if one can be dissatisfied with all happiness and count all things as loss except to maintain the intensity of desire to give praise and thanks to the infinite Creator. On October 29, 1995, Q’uo described the path of joy:

To be transparent is the most apt skill that can be created within your practice in terms of becoming aware of the ultimate essence of who you are. This transparency is, shall we say, not a state of being which is primary on the agenda of lessons learned within your density. However, those who seek the one infinite Mystery often yearn to be transparent to the surrounding illusion and wish mightily to experience that lightness in transparency of being which is associated with being pure spirit. The most calm and the most busy of times alike offer moments or windows of opportunity wherein suddenly the illusion crystallizes and shimmers, and the transparency of being can be felt. When these moments occur, find time to give praise and thanks for these experiences of a truth that lies within you.

The path of sorrow, then, is that path which nearly all experience nearly all the time within incarnation. Misery, anger, grief—all the uncomfortable emotional and mental states—create a necessity for seeking some means of relief. The limitations are there because the nature of the choice is such that the surface illusion can be seen by the seeker to be an illusion. And it is through the growing discomfort of catalyst, of loss and limitation, that the wayward spirit is finally alert to the need for discipline.

That which needs to be grasped may perhaps be seen to be held in the concept of sacrifice. The seeker is born into a world which offers great riches. These riches are apparent: health, possessions, power. All that which is seen, however, is the illusion. If the world thinks well of something, it is almost sure to be that which is illusory. So, how then to get the attention? How to make the self work, spiritually speaking? The infant comes into the world in a state of unrestrained joy. This is the path upon which entities begin. Often before the entity has opened the eyes to the physical world that joy has been compromised. Certainly within the first year or two of incarnation that native joy will be compromised, and the entity plunges into the myriad catalysts of this rich illusion which you now enjoy. As one watches the growing child one can see this joy more and more compromised by circumstance.

Where are the teachers of the path of joy? Why is this path not more used? There is a simple answer; that being that the path of joy is the path of the adept and to the adept all things are loss, except the infinite Creator and serving that love which is the Creator. All things whatever may be counted as loss except that service. It is for this that each has come into this incarnation, to learn this path. This shining goal waits for each and becomes the path of fourth density. But third density still is being processed by each. This joy is still to be experienced fully except in many moments for each seeker where there is the click of sliding into that presence which is electric, which is the Creator within.

So, we welcome you to this path of sorrow, loss and limitation. We encourage each to practice the path of joy, to practice the presence of the one infinite Creator. But we say to you that most of you shall, again and again, fall away from joy into comfort, happiness and eventual sorrow. And we say that it is well that these sorrows then occur, for this is that which teaches at this particular stage of awareness. The primary choice, we say again, is toward the absolute, the infinite and eternal as opposed to all things temporary and illusory.

We encourage each seeker to practice this joy as much as possible within the framework of an authentically lived life which grapples with the sorrows of an incarnation. Encourage and exhort each other to practice the presence in all ways which are meet and appropriate, one to another. Encourage the self, whenever the mind may turn to awareness of self, to turn again and again to that center within in which all things reside, abide and have their being. Give thanks always and for every blessing, including the most unimaginable loss and pain. Rejoice in hardship and suffering. And let your heart be glad in life, in death. Then you shall not be troubled with sorrow. But, dear ones, if you cannot achieve this state of vibration, know that this is no more than what was expected for third density. You now walk in a shadow land where nothing is what it seems. Within each atom of this shadow land resides an infinite, absolute reality. The journey takes no time, no space. The answers lie within. Do not begrudge your sorrows their place, for the path of joy does await.

Then Q’uo said that almost everyone in the third density experiences the path of uncomfortable mental and emotional states that can only be dealt with by some kind of discipline. They continued by saying that we are all born into the world of seeming riches such as health, possessions, and power, but these are illusions, and the joy of seeking them must eventually be sacrificed so that the catalyst of the illusion may become processed in the form of the loss of these riches, and then the seeker can focus upon loving and serving the Creator which is the path into the fourth density. Q’uo continued by encouraging seekers to follow the path of the joy of the presence of the one infinite Creator and to join with others in this path in order to deal with the sorrows of life, to rejoice in pain and suffering, but then Q’uo said that if we cannot sustain this state of vibration, that is what the third density is all about: nothing is what it seems and all answers and sorrows will lead us to the path of joy. On February 15, 2023, Q’uo spoke about the experience of joy:

Tonight you ask about the spirit portion of your mind/body/spirit complex and how it might be seen as that which partakes more fully and freely, of what you call joy. The joy of being. The joy of knowing your connection to the One Infinite Creator. The joy of knowing your connection with all of your brothers and sisters within the third density, who are also manifestations of the One Infinite Creator. This is a kind of knowing that comes from the heart of your being that is connected to the Love of the One Infinite Creator that has created the universe around you out of its Love, focused into Light. Your spirit is that which partakes of the nature of creation as being a portion of the One Creator.

At this time, we would transfer this contact to the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument as we leave it. We are those of Q’uo.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light through this instrument. At this time we would ask if we may speak to any further queries which those present may find value in the asking. Is there another query at this time?

R: Could you restate the comment that “all things are loss which are part of the illusion”? Could you say that again?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. When we say that all things are loss we mean that there will come a time when all things that are made shall not be made, for the creation of things evolves and changes until there is another vibratory pattern that replaces the old. In each incarnation there is the experience gained that is reserved or kept according to its quality and kind rather than the details of the makeup of the experience being kept. Thus, distillations of your incarnational experiences become that soul essence that is you as you progress through the octaves of light. That essence remains and is eternal, whereas the forms that were utilized to provide experience that is later distilled to essence, these all fade away.

Is there a further query, my brother?

R: No, thank you.

Q’uo: We thank you, my brother, and we would also thank the one known as N for providing the focus for our working this day. We are with this entity in meditation, upon request, as we are with all entities who request our presence in the meditative state. We are happy to blend our vibrations there and to aid in the deepening of your meditation.

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

This morning I changed out the sugar syrup in my three hummingbird feeders, and then I went across the street to my neighbor’s yard and did the same with her two hummingbird feeders. Then I made an errand run with my first stop being at The Home Depot to pick up three more Sun Patiens for my clay tile pyramid. My second stop was at Feeder’s Supply where I bought some kitty litter, bird seed, and fish food. Then I stopped in at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. My last stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some Pepsi Zero. When I got home, I finished the transplanting of the Sun Patiens into the clay tile pyramid and the Marigolds that I bought yesterday into the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden.

This afternoon I found a smaller stone to put beneath the fountain in the fishpond so that it does not spray its fountain so that it splashes off of the schemer box and the out of the fishpond. The water clarity seemed off to me, so I pumped a quarter of the water out of the fishpond, cleaned the filters, and refilled the fishpond with fresh water.

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

July 9

Awaiting The Host’s Invitation

I am of those who shower this world with the ever-creative Love of Jesus the Christ. I greet you in the consciousness of Love.

That consciousness flowers when it will, as the world calls for it and requires it. That consciousness is called by desire. That consciousness dwells as the guest within the house, awaiting the host’s invitation to join in the conversation at table.

At times your experience may that of the banquet and at other times that of starvation fare. Yet always the manna of divine thought is there in full supply to fill the hearts and minds of those who seek beyond banquet and hunger to that food which is given every day for the transformation of the self and the renewal of all of humankind.

We leave you in the peace of constant, divine Love. Whatever your circumstance this is yours, now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from May 29, 1994:

The question today has to do with healing. Many of the newer and more holistic means of healing deal with the body that has to be healed, the mind and the emotional system that has an effect upon the body, and then each one attempts to deal also with the spiritual aspect, which has ascendancy over both the emotional and the physical realms. We are wondering how a healer who is using any particular holistic method to heal might aid the patient to engage the spiritual aspect of the healing so that the healing has a better chance of being successful and so that the roots of the problems are dealt with. Could you give us some information on that?

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is indeed a privilege to be called to your circle of seeking and we humbly thank each for offering us the honor of sharing our vibrations and our opinions with you. As always, we request that those thoughts which seem helpful to each be retained and that those which do not appear helpful at this particular occasion be released, for we are prone to error, being those who journey with you, but perhaps a few steps further in that infinite journey. With this understood we may speak freely.

The difficulty in speaking about spiritual healing and cleansing is the difficulty common to all attempts to put faith into words. Whereas physical and mental, emotional—we correct this instrument—emotional problems have a large vocabulary of closely fitting words to work with, the issues of spirit must depend upon words such as love and faith which have no objective referent that is at one’s hand to pin down and to create as a fully meaningful term. Words like faith indeed do refer to a real thing, but that reality is at best approximately symbolized by language, for the level of this truth is beyond the reach of words created as tools in dealing with one’s environment.

The entity who is attempting a life lived in faith is perhaps the closest one might come to a fully meaningful symbol of faith. A person who is attempting to love is perhaps the soulful expression of love itself. When that verb which is the seeker seeks to attain the objective of spiritual health, then, there is no set of words that can bring about healing, for the health of spirit is at once always within that entity seeking help, regardless of the outer appearance. However, this health is also most suggestible when there is attained within the seeker the releasing and balancing of all energies which can be felt, and then the simple willing belief of a believer who believes not in the words of faith, but who believes that faith is the appropriate energetic balance.

This is difficult for us to give this instrument, but we would ask each to picture the entity who rides upon the bicycle or the entity who flies the airplane. When the various moments of motion are moving harmoniously, the balance is effortless. To achieve an approximate balance, however, for the newly—we correct this instrument—for the new practitioner is very difficult. The beginner does not know what true balance feels like and has not the ready instinct usually for that point of balance. So it is when a seeker begins to reinvent the life so that the life becomes a life lived in faith.

Structurally speaking, there are two clear portions to working upon spiritual healing or health. The first energy which needs to be worked with by the entity and by a healer who wishes to assist is that portion of the self which could perhaps be seen as muddied or roiled in terms of energetic patterns. The torque of spiritual disease is such that the unhealthy entity that one could say knotted or twisted and then held in that pattern by the energies which wish to untangle that unhealth, but yet each attempt to untangle just close the knot tighter.

This darkness, shall we say, is a darkness which is in the midst of the light which is also perceived as darkness. Therefore, there is no vision within which can tell what of the shadow world of spirit is of health and which is that of disease. Therefore, in the combing out of these tangles the dependency must be not upon precise visualization, but rather upon the willingness of that seeker to lay down all judgment of both disease and health, or of both the darkness which is knotted and that great darkness of spirit which is the rightful realm of the healthy and balanced spiritual seeker.

The right ways of working to release these tightly held points of disease are those which heavily move into symbol, both the use of symbols and the general willingness to work with parallel healing modes, with the realization that the cleansing of the mode used is specifically intended and desired to be reflected within the patterns of energy of the individual as spiritual counterparts. So that perhaps an entity seeking to release old mind and old unhealth of spirit might put the self upon some sort of fast or diet, this being specifically stated within and repeated often as one form of cleansing which is reflected into the spirit; as the parallel of the body is cleansed, so the paralleled spirit also becomes more cleansed and less full of substance.

As a healer wishing to aid this process, one may work within one’s experience and thought to achieve methods found by one particular healer to be efficacious. These might include, for instance, the aiding of that patient to achieve a more suggestible state, or hypnosis. In this state, then, the healer may take the entity to a point between incarnations where the higher self is a voice available to and able to respond to questioner and questions so that the healer might gently request the higher self be asked by the patient if this entity is indeed ready to experience healing. In other words, is that lesson for which this distortion was necessary now learned; if not, may there be some thought upon this. Thusly, that entity’s higher self may give impressions and words within the hearing and control of that patient.

Alternately, a healer might choose, when a hypnotic state was achieved, simply to speak in terms of lessening fear by means of extending the range of the viewpoint. This entity recalls the story told her of a patient whose ulcers were life-threatening. In hypnosis this entity was told that the entity sat on the side of a large planet, a ball whirling in space. The scope of time, the reaches of spaces were piped into the inner world of this entity. Those concerns which seared and burned within could more and more be seen to be of less import because of the widening of the viewpoint from this moment and this place to an infinite sweep of time and space.

The group question for this session was: “We are wondering how a healer who is using any particular holistic method to heal might aid the patient to engage the spiritual aspect of the healing so that the healing has a better chance of being successful and so that the roots of the problems are dealt with?” Q’uo began by saying that physical, mental, and emotional problems that might need healing can be described by words, but spiritual problems can only be described by the concepts of love and faith. Q’uo continued by saying that spiritual healing is always within the seeker regardless of outer appearances, and can be achieved by the releasing and balancing of all the energies that can be felt, and then having the faith that these energies have been balanced. Then Q’uo said that this balance is difficult to achieve because the beginner doesn’t know what it feels like, and this is like the seeker beginning to reinvent the life so that its life becomes that which is lived in faith. Q’uo went on to say that the first energy of spiritual disease that needs to be worked upon by the healer and the one to be healed is a combination of that which is spiritually healthy and that which is spiritually unhealthy which are tangled together in a kind of darkness, and the best way to work with them is to release all judgements of health or disease. Q’uo continued by saying that one way to heal spiritual disease could be symbolically approached by putting the body on a fasting diet, which is stated as an intention and repeated often, so that as the body is cleansed, and the spirit is also cleansed of the diseased substance. Q’uo also said that hypnosis could be used to ask the higher self if the lessons that this disease represents have been learned so that healing may occur, or if they have not been learned then the patient should give this serious thought. Then Q’uo said that hypnosis could also be used to take the patient to a higher viewpoint in space to look back upon the difficulties of its disease as growing less significant in the overall view of time and space. On October 17, 1991, Q’uo gave a general description of the healing process:

Perhaps firstly we should say, that unless an entity wishes to be healed, just at that moment and just by that person, it is a far better thing to relinquish that opportunity of healing. For the healing must take place at a level of very high trust. Open heart to open heart, so as the patient reckons with itself and finds that it does indeed feel that it still needs this apparent disease, that is alright. That is acceptable. It is not necessary to take damaged entities and refurbish them for the entire chemical engine of your physical being, though very wide in a cellular way, will not respond to that which the Higher Self does not feel that that entity needs or wants on a deeper level. And once again patience of the cycles of the year: the gleaning of the harvest, the darkening of the days, the rejoicing when the sun starts once again to make a lighter and brighter world for the eyes and for the hearts of all.

Another entity might wish to use the conscious technique, that is, the patient remaining conscious of the tones sung or the prayers offered. In doing these chantings, or singings, or sharing energy in some other way, the healer and the patient are together seeking to release the disease by these energetic displacements, not of thoughts but of tones and so forth which have for the healer the ability to carry prayer, the energy of prayer. For what is a prayer? When one wishes to aid the spiritually ill one truly needs to be able to speak of prayer in a way which is flexible, but yet which holds for the healer that ring of authority which indicates experience, which the healer does have. So perhaps it is well to look at prayer.

But this moves into the second portion of the material we hope to share at this working. Before we leave the first there is a bit more to be said. What is this knotting that indicates that the shuttle of spirit is not in good working order? The simplest term is fear. The spiritually ill entity has moved into an isolation, a place alone within which the entity is unforgiven and unnurtured. This isolation is crushing and once entered is very difficult to see, much less to work with. So, the energies of the healer pour like a blessing over this wounded spirit, lessening the isolation. However it is an infringement on the free will of the spirit being healed to substitute one’s own faith for the faith of the patient, so the healer who wishes to be of benefit must work on itself, offering, too, itself those energies of forgiveness and wholeness. And in this offering to self, opening and sharing this purifies emotion of an at-one-ment with the patient.

Simply to say, “All things are love and love casts out fear,” is in almost all cases inadequate. Perhaps one entity might hear and understand in a moment of realization that truly love casts out fear, but to the ailing spirit, such encouragement usually is received as if it simply constituted another pressure which was painful, the feelings of inadequacy and helplessness continuing and perhaps even growing. It is well to be humble and silent before or in the face of the temptation to overstate or speak too much. However, there are an infinite number of ways to create within the self of the healer that dynamic balance to forgiveness and love which may far better speak to the spiritually ill.

This instrument is concerned that it is not picking up all that we are offering, but we ask this instrument to quit being so picky and move on please. We are teasing this instrument.

Once that fear that isolates and anguishes the patient has been addressed, once the way has been to some extent cleared, then the healer moves to the darkness of spiritual hell, still in that place of mystery where faith is born, but now is free because of having addressed and bid farewell to fear. Into this environment may prayer come.

The one known as D has offered the information that although the spiritual illness can now be to some extent determined or found, yet there has not been a corresponding mode of healing with the exception of prayer. Again, this is because the spirit, while acting as a shuttle for energies into the physical and mental and emotional bodies, is not in direct contact with energies within the instinctual body and mental frame of individuals upon planet Earth, but rather can be reached roundabout, or so it seems to those within third density. The praying seems roundabout because one is praying to forces or essences within the world of spirit. And then that energy which lies without the sphere of Earth is persuaded to enter into the tangle to breathe balance into it. However, in actuality prayer is the most direct way of healing, for true healing is the restoration of all energies to their rightful balance.

But how to pray and how to aid patients in praying? Firstly, we would suggest that it be told to patients who are interested in helping themselves in this wise, concerning the physical place where he or she might pray, where in a specific environment shall the prayers be, how long shall they be given, of what shall they consist, thereby aiding the seeker in its growing ability to visualize this as a real and efficacious healing mode. For those among your peoples, for the most part, do not have the daily prayers, do not have the praying without ceasing, and if neither the daily repetition of prayer, or the constancy of prayer are things which the patient is familiar with then the suggestion to pray leaves the patient in a vulnerable position, feeling alone and inadequate. Thusly, the healer aids by making a place in time and space where the outer form might be observed. Thusly can a healer move the patient into that mental and emotional feeling of “I can do this.”

It is seemingly merely working with details to get down to basics to decide which chair to use or what time of day to make for prayer time, yet these down-to-earth details truly do aid in the formation of faith. Now, prayer could be said to be that tune which, though unheard, is the tune of hope. Prayer can be said to be that inner flower which bears the scent of love. Prayer can be talked about indirectly by speaking of the beauty of a poem or a rose. Prayer is a form of communication whose object is one with its subject. The prayer, in reaching to the infinite Creator, reaches within. The self talking to the greater Self, this is the structure which seen from the outside may be said to constitute the house of prayer. The actuality is that that seemingly far away source of unity which Love itself is, lies within, so the journey of prayer is a journey from self to the greater Self within, then circling back to form the unending circle between prayer and prayer, that is between the one who prays and the object of prayer.

It is not that we are saying that people pray to themselves, rather we are saying that…

[Side one of tape ends.]

…to which people pray lies within, for as the illusions of manifestation are progressively cast aside, that which is uncovered is already holy ground, and that far away Creator of one who fears is in reality that imminent presence which is the internal truth of all, shut away from the heart’s awareness by that door which the seeker is always able to open but has not discovered the way to, or the key for it.

Thusly, it is well for the healer to speak some words concerning this practice of the infinite presence of that one great original Thought, that Logos which is Love and which is the One infinite Creator. In your Holy Bible it is written that the one known as Jesus states, “I am come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” This abundance of life is that which is the healthy spirit. When you have been able to, as healer, to place within the seeker’s hands these basic concepts, then the healer’s job is done insofar as communication with the seeker. From this point onward the healer may pray and know that presence within and offer this state of prayer to the infinite Creator on behalf of the patient, and the seeker who is the patient may begin to create for itself a life which is transformed. But this transformation shall come not visibly, not plainly, but rather from inside out.

Now Q’uo said that chanting, singing, or praying is a way to begin the healing process, but before exploring prayer Q’uo wanted to return to the concept of the knotting process–of that which is spiritually healthy with that which is spiritually unhealthy–and is caused by fear because the one to be healed feels isolated and alone and unable to forgive itself. Then Q’uo said that the healer must go through the same process of forgiving itself so that it purifies itself in order to become one with the patient, and once this is done the healer can move into the place of spiritual mystery where healing might be done in faith because of having addressed and bid farewell to fear, and into this environment may prayer come. Q’uo went on to say that prayer is the most effective way of healing because it invokes the essences in the world of the spirit which breathes balance into the tangled knot to restore all energies into their rightful balance. Then Q’uo said that the healer must help the patient to find the proper place and time to pray on a daily basis in order to speak to the infinite One which is actually the greater Self within the self that gives the patient contact with the healing power of Love. Q’uo completed their response by saying that when the healer has given the patient this process of prayer then the healer has completed its work with the patient, and thereafter may offer its prayer to the infinite Creator on behalf of the patient so that the patient may create a transformed life that comes from within itself. On April 18, 1993 Q’uo spoke of the way prayer aids healing:

Thus, prayer creates the introduction into the mind/body/spirit totality of an entity of the original flow. However, this flow is moving along the spiritual, rather than the physical, of the bodies. It therefore moves through blockage, confusion, and so forth, wherever it finds it. This free flow of the energy sought and found in prayer has the tendency to entrain the flow of the physical vehicle, so that the physical energy of flow tends to be restored.

Now, when an entity wishes to be a healing presence, not only for one physical vehicle or one mental, emotional, or spiritual aspect of a consciousness, but for the world at large as this instrument would say, or for some group larger than one entity, the prayer is working upon the mental, or in some cases, emotional vehicles of that group entity, and in some few cases, on the physical manifestation of that group entity. So, whether the healing is for an individual or group consciousness, the prayer has in its answer an equally effective agent of health.

Were entities to turn, whenever they found themselves in a worried or puzzled state, to intercession, thanksgiving, and praise, that is, to various forms of prayer, they would find, over a period of time, two things: firstly, that their frame of mind had become more balanced; secondly, that the problems that were so worrying somehow had taken a turn for the better in that they begin to be perceived as less worrisome. Turning to prayer is an appeal or shifting of the attention to that original pattern, which is forever mysterious but is also forever unified and whole.

It is a habit hard to cultivate, difficult to regularize, and impossible to adjudge in any provable way. However, that instinct of consciousness is a gift which may remind each in time of trouble to ask for help. Asking, praying—this is the secret. For as one devoutly hopes, has faith, and prays, so shall one’s health be established.

There is much which might be added upon this interesting subject, however, we are aware that we have talked overlong, and at this time we would move on in this session by transferring this contact to the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument and leave it in love and in light. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I drove to Nashville to visit Anna, her husband, Brandon, and their new kitty, Hibachi. It took a little longer to get there than it should have because Siri took me to the incorrect address on the south side of Nashville, and Anna said that they lived on the north side of Nashville, so Siri finally it the address right on the second try. We had a great time together talking about our life paths in various ways and enjoying Hibachi playing with all of us in one way or another.

This afternoon we enjoyed a great lunch out at a new vegan restaurant, and then returned back to their house where Anna and I listened to Carla channel Ra while seeing the words being channeled for Session #37 on Anna’s television screen. We had a great time together, and I look forward to our next visit. My trip home was also longer than expected as there was a good deal of stop and go traffic due to construction on the road that reduce three lanes to one.

The Universe Is Your Womb

I am the spirit of Jesus the Christ in the world today and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine Love.

The night sky is an image which we may connect to the womb of the soul. The stars are sliding by in infinite number, their points of light flashing as jewels and moving away, then, at speeds which are impossible to express with tongue or measure.

It is in the starry womb within the silence of your being that peace, confidence, and trust in that perfect Love which Jesus brings are expressed. Rest in that womb and realize that you have yet to be born and that this universe and all that you see before you is indeed your womb.

To become a true child of the universe will be strange and new and certainly un-peaceful. Therefore, rest back in the true nature of womb silence and feel that peace which passeth all understanding, for in the darkness of the womb of the Father-Mother-God shall you be created and shall you create.

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

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from May 22, 1994:

The question this afternoon has to do with wanderers. What does Q’uo have to say to those who have discovered that they are wanderers to be of service to others, and what would Q’uo have to say to those wanderers who have not discovered that they are wanderers?

(Carla channeling)

We are Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We thank you for calling us to your circle of seeking. It is our great privilege to share our thoughts with you on the subject of wanderers. As we speak, please feel free to take those thoughts which appeal and leave others behind, for we are not without error and would not wish to be a stumbling block in your path.

We are aware that this instrument has been much concerned with this subject. We would express to this instrument that it would aid the contact were the instrument to completely release the fear of contributing too much to the channeling. This is not a problem from our point of view, and the releasing of worrying would relax the instrument and improve the contact. We also would say, before we continue with this subject, that the one known as Hatonn is with this group this particular day as there is a desire for this entity’s basic vibrations which will be imprinted upon the tape.

When the term “wanderer” is used the basic meaning of this word is that one is traveling without reference to a goal or destination. There is, implicit in this term, a feeling or emotional/mental mindset of aloneness, restlessness, shared solitude, and indifferent scenery. The winds blow cold and harshly for the wanderer. The sun beats down mercilessly for the wanderer. Few there are who use that term who feel that it is desirable to be a wandering spirit. All of the third-density instinct is towards putting down the roots, securing the home, and protecting the home and family. The wanderer is uprooted when gazed at in the cultural context that you enjoy upon your sphere. Therefore, it is natural that this term be chosen as descriptive of those who have come into the Earth’s sphere of influence and incarnated to become as one with all citizens of your Earth.

So, at the heart of being a wanderer is that feeling of dislocation, of being in the world but not of the world in which you find yourselves. Because this situation seems full of discomfort many who have wandered here are simply miserable without finding any comfort. To respond to that need for comforting some who have responded have leaned in their discussions heavily towards comforting wanderers by encouraging a sense of separation from native Earth humans. We do not encourage this line of thought because each wanderer, in coming into your Earth’s sphere of influence, took upon it the responsibility of citizenship of this Earth. As much as any other native inhabitant, wanderers will be expected to walk the steps of light when this incarnational experience is at an end, and, just as much as any native inhabitant of Earth, if the steps are walked to a point of comfort within third density the wanderer shall not return to its home vibratory nexus but, rather, shall continue in third density until graduation is achieved.

Therefore, we greatly encourage all wanderers to take up the burden of a dual existence, for that is precisely why you have put yourselves to this task. As difficult and disagreeable as it sometimes is to live with this double vibratory pattern, this difficulty is worthwhile and one hundred times worthwhile, for the basic vocation of every wanderer is to bear witness to the light and the love of the one infinite Creator. Therefore, the life may be seen to be full of everyday matters, yet offer ample time and space for the spiritual vocation to which wanderers have called themselves, that of bearing witness.

The Question for this session was: “What does Q’uo have to say to those who have discovered that they are wanderers to be of service to others, and what would Q’uo have to say to those wanderers who have not discovered that they are wanderers?” Q’uo said that the term “wanderer” refers to one who is restless, alone, and travels without a goal or destination and is totally at odds with the normal third density entity that has a home, a family, and puts down roots, and yet the wanderer has incarnated to become one with the citizens of Earth. Q’uo went on to say that the life of the wanderer is often one of feeling out of place and miserable to the point of wanting to separate themselves from other entities, but Q’uo discouraged this approach because, like all other entities, at the end of its life here it will walk the steps of light, and if it has not served others beyond the point of its own comfort it will have to repeat the third density. So Q’uo suggested that wanderers take up the task of accepting their dual nature of living the everyday life in which they might take up the spiritual journey of bearing witness to the love and light of the infinite Creator. On May 20, 2005, Q’uo spoke about the life of a wanderer:

We would offer a few observations and comments upon the condition of being a wanderer and are pleased that you have requested our opinions on this matter.

The wanderer is as one who has sacrificed a great deal in order to risk the forgetting process and enter into incarnation for service to others. It is a courageous decision to make, and we congratulate the one known as C on having plunged into incarnation in third density for such a loving and service-to-others reason.

The nature of service to others is often greatly misunderstood among your peoples because the emphasis, as we said recently to the one known as T, is so often construed to be that of doing in outer service to others that mounts up or amounts to something in the eyes of the world. Certainly, you have already in this incarnation offered service to others of a substantial kind that has indeed come to the notice of the world. However, we ask you to think of yourself as a crystalline being whose nature is basically to share your beauty with the world, with yourself, and with the infinite Creator. If you can think of yourself as a gem or a crystal, then you shall be able perhaps to come close to understanding what we are talking about when we say that the heart of service to others is in the essence of your being rather than in the details of your outer service.

And how does a wanderer bear this witness? It might seem that witnesses are best when they are expressing by words that witness to which they hew, yet this actually is not so. Rather, wanderers may best bear witness by being most fully themselves, for it is the basic vibratory complex carried in the violet ray by each wanderer that is witness by its very essence. Therefore, the wanderer’s job in everyday affairs is to keep the channel of selfhood and essence clean, clear and pellucid. This is in many ways a passive spiritual vocation. It is easier to make the mistake of attempting to speak this witness and not being understood or of service than to refrain from some activity and, therefore, fail to bear witness.

The planetary consciousness is drinking in your essence. It is lightening the planetary vibration and is acting as an ameliorator of birth pangs within the planet itself and within the great congregation of entities which now approach your millennium. Inconvenient and difficult times beckon. Within these confusing times the silent witness of being shall more and more be needed as the planet reaches for a new point of balance.

We encourage each so to arrange the daily habits that the center of being is given respect and pride of place within the daily life. As always, we suggest a daily meditation, a turning in and out of season towards that infinity which is the inarticulated Love of the one infinite Creator. The challenge for each wanderer is to be able to dwell in this particular illusion, to enter fully into the processes of becoming a transformation yet remain at the center of being, consciously turning again and again to Love itself.

To those who feel somewhat dislocated and alienated by the outward environment, but who have not yet decided for sure that they are wanderers, we say to each that it is well to act as if you are a wanderer, for that which wanderers came here to do is that which all may help by attempting to do. For at heart, all are wanderers. We, as well as you. All have wandered from that inarticulated Love which is the one infinite Creator. We have wandered through many, many creations and have experienced manifestation upon manifestation. Within each place we have found eventually the one infinite Creator, and as we have found the Creator, we have felt that homecoming. Yet as soon as that is felt the new challenge arises, the new day dawns, a new lesson is to be learned, and once again the restless wandering begins within.

May each wanderer find comfort in the knowledge that it cannot help contributing positively to the planetary vibration. Even with what seems to be gross mismanagement of time and energy, yet still in that very basic alienated mindset there dwells that vibration which is fuller with light. This very alienation is simply a surface symptom of a deep and spiritual gift. Comfort yourself when the heart is heavy and the feelings bruised with the knowledge that you are being of service. You are doing that which you came to do. You may find ways to do it better, but you are not failing no matter what it seems like. In the great circle of creation we salute each brave soul who has chosen this sacrificial honor. The one known as Brother Philip has said, “The crown shall weigh heavy upon the head, yet you shall wear it and you shall serve under it.” May this be most truly so for each.

Then Q’uo said that wanderers bear witness to their purpose for being incarnate on Earth by their very essence and keeping their channel of selfhood clean and clear so that their essence lightens the planetary vibration as difficult times for the planet reach a new point of balance. Q’uo continued by suggesting that wanderers should use daily meditation to make contact with the Love of the infinite Creator while they are also becoming a part of the transformation of the population of Earth.  Q’uo said that everyone should act as if they are wanderers for each entity has wandered away from the unity with the Creator in order to be of service to others and the learning of lessons that become new challenges, and once again the wandering begins within. Q’uo completed their reply by saying that the wanderer will make a positive contribution to the planetary vibrations even when they feel alienated because that alienation is a sign of a deep, spiritual gift that allows the wanderer to know that it is doing what it has come to Earth to do even when its heart is heavy, and its feelings are bruised. On December 7, 2019, Q’uo gave a summary of the purpose for wanderers incarnating on Earth at this time:

Wanderers are a breed of being which contain a certain kind of desire that is of such strength to move into the third-density illusion of misunderstanding, of confusion, of disharmony, of a lack of any sense of the self as being any more than that which is born and that which shall live a certain number of years, and then die. This requires a certain degree of bravery, shall we say, for there is the great chance that the wanderer may not be able to remember its desired programming for the incarnation.

Each wanderer has in common with each other wanderer the first and most basic desire that is—by its very being, of expressing love to others—to be able to enhance the vibratory patterns and intensity of the Earth plane, the third-density illusion, which is in such chaotic stress that the feeling of love has the potential to reduce the level of stress and increase opportunities for clearer perceptions beyond and through the chaos, the confusion, the disharmony, and so forth.

All wanderers have, as another goal, the desire to provide certain specific services according to their unique talents. Some become teachers of spiritual principles, some become healers of mental, emotional, spiritual, or physical difficulties, some become those who may be seen as creative artists that express through word, through paintings, through music, the love and light of the One Infinite Creator, the unity of all creation, and so forth. Others, simply go about a daily round of activities, in what could be seen as a normal third-density experience, being mothers, fathers, teachers, clerks, bishops, and so forth, and in this attempt to serve, offer that love vibration which colors each service in a fashion which those entities receiving the service become aware of, if not on the conscious level, then upon the sub-conscious level, so that the effect is, shall we say, vibrating love from the foundation of one’s being, upward and outward into the conscious expression of one’s own unique being.

We would, at this time, ask if there are any queries.

[Pause]

We thank you. The ones of Hatonn wished only to place the basic vibration upon the tape in order that comfort may be given to one who hears.

We once again thank each for gathering to seek within spirituality for that ultimate reality which beckons. How confusing it is to have chosen to become manifestations of Love. At the point at which we all are it seems very strange that we as Creator chose to become co-Creators, moving in and out of illusion after illusion. Yet that which is infinite calls for more and more, and each carries that eternal stillness and the eternal free will within. The combination creates that which is just, and right, and good. Yes, you shall suffer, but this suffering is infinitely worthwhile.

We leave this instrument and this group in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai, vasu.

This morning I went across the street to my neighbor’s flower garden and weeded it by hand as our recent rains have made this most effective way of weeding possible so that you get the weed and its roots as well. When I came back home, I went into the garage and used my air compressor to be sure that all of the tires on Stanley are at least at 32 psi as I will be traveling to Nashville, TN. tomorrow to visit with Anna, to meet her husband, Brandon and their new little kitten, Hibachi.

This afternoon I used my trimmer to go around the yard and complete the trimming of weeds that I began yesterday. Then I began transplanting the Sun Patiens that I bought yesterday into the clay tile pipes that I have placed in the form of a pyramid in front of the Secret Garden in the back yard. I got the top of the pyramid planted and added some soil to the second layer of clay tile pipes because the recent rains had condensed the soil so that where the 4 inch pipes were setting at the back of the 10 inch pipes the 4 inch pipes were unstable.

The Hope Of Light

I am the living spirit of the consciousness of Love.

I am of a principle of being without personality as you know it, of being rooted in and upheld in Love, in a Love that is clear, undiluted and bright, a Love that may dance within the light of those who dwell even in the innermost shades of the earthly life and illumine those dark penumbras of living.

Consider yourselves among those who have every hope of light and love regardless of the situation which appears before you. For the Spirit of the living God penetrates to every heart.

The peace of Christ be with you, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, 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 May 1, 1994:

A question about relationships this afternoon. We have noticed that people in relationships that seem to have the best time, to stay together the longest, and who enjoy each other the most are people who don’t let the little oddities of their partner’s behavior bother them all that much. Some people can actually get so upset over these little things that they divorce, and I guess that a lot of divorces come from the cumulative experience of a lot of little things that one can’t stand about the other. We are wondering what kind of transformation has to take place within the self for a person to move from where the little oddities in their partner’s behavior no longer bother one, and in fact become a lovable part of the other person’s image, and how does one move from the rejection of another to the acceptance of another and how does this happen within the self?

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. It is a blessing and a privilege to greet you on this day of transition from your cold to your warmer season. We thank each for calling us to your circle of seeking, and we share our humble thoughts with you most thankfully, asking only that you listen to our thoughts keeping that which seems of worth and truth to you and disregarding the remainder, for while we wish to be of service, we do not wish to become a stumbling block for any. Therefore, we ask that you invoke your own discrimination, for you will recognize that truth which is for you.

A query concerning relationships is always most welcome to us for the essence of third-density learn/teaching and teach/learning is that there are other selves, to which one must relate in choosing the manner of that relationship with others. The choice of polarity becomes first recognized and then made. The third-density physical vehicle was designed to function only in what you may call the family. By oneself one cannot reproduce and create new life. Without other selves working in cooperation, your own self will be unable to create a meeting of all needs. The essence of what you may call human is an absolute need for relationships with other selves.

Now, we have often pointed out that the other self in its interaction with you acts as a kind of a reflective surface or a mirror, reflecting back to you your own image, for that to which you are drawn or from which you are repelled in others is a somewhat distorted image of that within the self which has not come to the light of self-perception.

Thusly, when one sees that which is good in another, one does well to contemplate this positive reaction to discover that which one may by reflection discover the nature of the self and the self-perceived virtues. Similarly, when one is disturbed by another, one does well to reflect upon this event to discover what it is within the hidden self that the self perceives as wanting, unworthy or in error. Yet these descriptions would almost create the image of the self as actually separate, a “Monet” if you will. Within a universe created completely of mirrors this is not the case, although the work one does is upon oneself, if it be excellent work. Yet still in the process of working upon the self, other selves offer the opportunity for service, the service which you offer to another by being needy and needing that from another which will help you. It is as important to be able to receive love and kindness as it is to offer love and charity.

So, the other self is the self yet not the self. The reactions to the other self are the business of the self. That which is proactive, not responsive but creative with regard to another self is often that service which you may best offer that particular other self. We speak always about love. Our message continues to be simple, to the point of confounding the wise. We ask you to open to the Love of the infinite Creator; we ask you to become aware of the presence of this Love as the center of the life; we ask you that you work towards creating within the self a channel for that infinite Love so that this highest truth may be attested to by the solid witness of your being.

Now, could you accomplish this, you would be dwelling within the fourth density at this time. It is expected and appreciated that the nature of learning is the attempt and often the failure to manifest the infinite Love of the infinite Creator. This is not the sort of test wherein one must study, memorize, and accomplish a right answer. Living as a witness to an infinite Love is the kind of test that occurs when one is being observed but not stimulated by a teacher. The teacher rather watches as the spontaneous and natural rhythms of life are created and expressed moment by moment throughout the incarnation.

The watcher of your life is your own self in its higher manifestation, and at the end of this test, upon the dissolution of the bond between physical and spiritual self, this higher self shall dwell with you, gazing through the record of the days and years of this incarnation. There will be the center of the balance of this particular incarnation perceived. Its perception will be accurate and precise. As the spiritual self walks what has been called the steps of light, those who stop at a certain level shall be within third density again, those who stop and feel comfortable at a somewhat fuller light shall be those who take up higher density lessons for the next incarnation.

The question for this session was: “We are wondering what kind of transformation has to take place within the self for a person to move from where the little oddities in their partner’s behavior no longer bother one; and in fact, become a lovable part of the other person’s image; and how does one move from the rejection of another to the acceptance of another; and how does this happen within the self?” Q’uo began their response by saying that in the third density relationships are the way that entities interact in order to eventually make the choice of one’s polarity. Q’uo continued by saying that one way of engaging in relationships is the mirroring effect where each person reflects to each other person qualities that are appreciated or rejected because of one’s lack of knowledge of these qualities within the self, so Q’uo suggested that contemplation upon these qualities to discover that which one appreciates about the self that is hidden within the self, and that which is lacking within the self and is unappreciated. Q’uo went on to say that this mirroring process is a way that each person offers a service to others in the way of giving love by using our positive reflective images and receiving love by being needy for it according to what seems lacking in us because this eventually allows us to become a channel for the infinite Love of the Creator. Then Q’uo said that this is the way that we achieve graduation into the fourth density as our higher self has observed our giving of love, and when we drop our physical body and walk into the light that will help us to be able to take up the lessons of the higher density. On September 23, 2023, Q’uo used the group in South America that had 150 fourth-density graduates who were able to walk into the light and achieve the fourth density:

The South American entities to which you refer, were those who had, in previous incarnations, been able to realize more of the nature of the creation than most third-density entities are able to realize. This was because, though they were part of what you may call a primitive society, they had very advanced spiritual practices which had been initiated, shall we say, by contact with what you would call Confederation sources that gave them the type of information which we attempt to share with you at this time: information that regards the spiritual path within the third density that has as its goal the opening of the green-ray energy center, the heart center, in unconditional love.

When this is done, as was done by these entities in another incarnation, on another planet, they are then able to feel the love of the Creator, and to express it to others in a manner which enhances the beingness of those giving the love and those receiving.

Thus, when they were able to move out of their third-density bodies and walk into the light that would determine their ability to share unconditional love, they found that they had been able to do so in a manner which was congruent with being, shall we say, harvested into the fourth density of love and understanding. However, they were part of a larger group, which had not been able to make this choice in the degree as made by them. Thus, they felt it was important to continue their journeys on this planet within the third density in order to aid their brothers and sisters who had yet to make this choice.

Therefore, one cannot maintain a mentality of a spiritual homework beyond a certain point, for the homework is for a test that will not be held within your lifetime. You see, the self seldom has any very accurate notion of its own essential issues, needs and excellences. Rather, the self tends to perceive the self in a fairly distorted pattern because the self is so hidden from the conscious mind, and because the self within the flesh cannot truly see the self within, there is that veil drawn.

So, to begin to be able to make the transformation about which your query spoke one must first begin to allow the judgment of the self concerning the self to fade away and become unimportant, for there is no possibility of accurate judgment of the self by the self. It is well to examine the life as much as is possible but only in that it enables one to see into the uppermost layers of selfhood. Certainly this is valuable, however, it does not make you a judge. When one is able to lay self-judgment aside and instead to take up the solitude and the dust of the spiritual path taken on faith then is one beginning to be able to dwell and abide with others in a creative and living way.

Each self carries a great and terrible burden, that is, the self-perceived difficulties and errors and mischief which the self has seen the self think, speak, and do. No other entity who dwells with you will ever be able to share this burden with you, for even if you were able to talk, confessing every sin you could think of, every error you could remember, yet still would the self feel that such was not truly enough to wash clean human frailty. This is an accurate perception. You did not come into this incarnation to get everything right but to be a witness to love and light. You are not going to become right or better or finished but will remain one who seems to sow seeds in the wind.

The phrase, “casting one’s bread upon the waters” comes from your holy work, the Bible, and that is what each self is intended to do, to cast the love and light and being a witness unto the ever moving, ever disappearing waters of life. Indeed, one may rejoice and offer thanks when one is simply giving away love and light, for within this image in your Bible it is pointed out that if one achieves a true release of gifts, a lack of holding them in memory, then does the Law of Plenty move into action, and the self becomes conscious of receiving one hundred and one thousand times the blessing back upon those moving waters of life.

So, to become able to make the transformation from tolerating another to celebrating another—to use this instrument’s phrase—the first step is to become detached from self-judgment and unattached to one’s thoughts, words, and deeds. In that you do them, think them as well as you can, and then forget them and move onward to the next creative moment. Each entity vibrates within a certain range, this basic vibration is as a—we correct this instrument—each entity is an unique vibratory signature. It vibrates as it is, completely whole and completely clear no matter what muddle you may feel you are in. That basic vibration is completely identifiable as you and only you. This vibration, this basic signature is that which you are attempting to affect by the way you live your life and the lessons—we correct this instrument—the way you live your life and the way you concern yourself and deal with the lessons of love you encounter along the King’s Highway, as this instrument would put it.

By choosing again and again to serve others, by choosing to seek the Creator in the self, in others, in creation, and in the center of the being, you attempt to affect the narrowing of the gap between your vibratory signature and the basic pure vibration which created all things, that infinite Creator’s Thought or Logos of Love.

Now Q’uo said that the conscious mind of the self is unaware of its nature because the veil of forgetting keeps the self from seeing its true nature, so they suggested that in order to make the transformation of acceptance of another we should lay aside any judgement of ourselves, and then we can begin our spiritual journey in a way of being able to live with others in a creative way. They went on to say that when we can release the burden of self-judgement then we can become a witness of love and light which is like “casting one’s bread upon the waters” and experiencing the return of love and light a hundred or a thousand times more from the waters of life. Then Q’uo said that: “By choosing again and again to serve others, by choosing to seek the Creator in the self, in others, in creation, and in the center of the being, you attempt to affect the narrowing of the gap between your vibratory signature and the basic pure vibration which created all things, that infinite Creator’s Thought or Logos of Love.” On May 6, 1979, Hatonn described the value of seeking the Creator:

Thus, we ask you to meditate. Find not only the love within you but that unique and special love that is within you with all of its unique and special gifts. You know that some can give in one and some in another way. On all levels, some can speak; and some can listen; and some can cook; some can sing; some can hold their arms out to children; some can nurture old people; some have the gift of silence and others that of words. When you know who you are, then your gifts will flow therefrom, and it will be a free-flowing brook, one which is not stopped by the distortion of doubt. This can only be done by daily meditation, seeking the Creator Who is the seed and the source of the Love that is you.

So you have a relative vibration, that is, relative to the Creator. A great many incarnations are consumed in the slow and inevitable progression and narrowing of that gap betwixt the self and the All Self. This vibration may be seen to be that which is of love and of fear, these are the two basic dynamics within the vibratory levels. To be simplistic we would say that there is always some ratio of fear to love, however the greater the love, the greater the life, the greater the fear, the greater the death, for that which is alive, creative and moving is of love, and that which is judging and defending and inwardly focusing beyond a certain point is of death.

When one attempts to learn tolerance of another one is attempting to be able to accept another in complete love and lack of judgment. To the extent that this is accomplished there is a great benefit to the self, to the other self, and to the Creator. When one finds that one must engage in judging, in defending against and so forth, then one is dealing with emotions which may be identified with the death, or the forces of death.

We speak now of death not in the sense of your living things which bloom and die, but rather we are speaking of that which is of the Creator and that which is separate from the Creator. That is, all things are of the Creator but within your illusion and, indeed, in many illusions beyond your own the—we correct this instrument—there is an apparent choice between energies which move to a fuller life and energies which separate one from life.

There is a great and intensive battle within for your attention from both your deeper self and from the energies which surround you. Constantly you move within a spiritual atmosphere which is flowing and continuous, which never stops in its movements, and which is greatly affected by desire and intention. It is within this intuitively perceived sea of being that you swim, shall we say, or sail, either towards the unity of love which is the Creator or towards that archipelago of perceived self and other selves which is the seascape of the service-to-self entity who perceives the self apart from all by choice, and controlling all for the best good.

The battle is fought for the heart of the self and sometimes a seeker may begin to think that he has more than one self within him, so full of contradictions does the wandering vagaries of selfhood seem. Thusly, to move from tolerance to celebration of others, the first challenge is to begin to perceive the self within this larger view which does not judge but rather uses energy in a positive and creative manner, in self-acceptance, self-forgiveness and self-empowerment. To keep faith, continue in hope and do all such good works as open before the eyes.

When this has been perceived as a goal towards which to move, then it is that the self becomes able to extend this charity to other selves. We would offer the model of the way things are that the one known as Jesus offered when this entity described the situation where the sower sows a crop which another shall harvest. When this crop of love and positive desire is sown with a glad and merry heart it then becomes more and more possible to begin to see through the veil, to perceive for the first time the extent to which others sow for you to reap. How rich each is in the harvest given by others to the self, and how much richer shall the self be as it learns more and more to sow those seeds of love and virtue with a careless and generous hand, not waiting for the self to applaud but moving on, practicing the presence of love. Lift the eyes from the page of life and you shall see far more between the lines.

Then Q’uo said that we all have a relationship with the Creator that is evolving over time in the way of love which enhances life and creativity, and of fear and judging which enhances death. Q’uo went on to say that by loving and accepting others we enhance our own being, their being, and serve the Creator, but if we engage in judgment, we enhance fear and death in the sense that we are separated from the Creator and from life. Then Q’uo said that there is often a kind of battle within our deeper mind and within the spiritual atmosphere around us that is fought according to our desire and intentions either towards the unity of the love of the Creator or towards the seeming separation of the self from others. Q’uo went on to say that this battle is for the heart of our self and is a process of loving and forgiving ourselves so that we may also love and forgive others and sow the seeds of love generously and faithfully practice the presence of love. On January 16, 1994, Q’uo described a way in which we can practice the presence of love:

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

At this time, we would ask if there are continuing queries upon this interesting subject?

Questioner: Not from me Q’uo, but I really enjoyed what you had to say, thank you very much.

Q’uo: We thank you, my brother. This has been a very good group.

Questioner: No question from me Q’uo, I just enjoyed… [inaudible].

Q’uo: We humbly thank you, my brother.

How we love you! How beautiful you are to us! We see you wanting so much to cherish each other. Cherish yourselves, and then turn the eyes towards the infinite One, and your instinct shall more and more be that which does celebrate others, that which does have charity and wisdom towards others. These are natural ways. You are simply relearning them. Never doubt that behind the veil of suffering and limitation lies a land where love is visible. But hold fast to that faith and let it be the rock upon which you stand, with arms open to receive love… and hearts open to give it. May you truly celebrate and enable each other as you walk along the King’s Highway.

We thank each again for the joy of your company and the beauty of your shining hope. We leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning I used my trimmer to go all around the yard and weed any garden that could be weeded with the trimmer which included the gardens around the fishpond, the Sun Mandala behind the garage, the area around the cross, the astilbe garden, and the striped liriope garden in the back yard, and then I had to quit working outside as a thunderstorm began with heavy rain.

This afternoon I went on an errand run with my first stop being at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. My second stop was at Walgreens’ Drug Store to buy a card for my aunt, some clothes detergent, and some Pepsi Zero. My last stop was at The Home Depot where I bought some Sun Patiens that I plan to plant in the pyramid that I made out of the clay tile pipes that used to be part of the drainage system for my sump pumps in the basement. When I got home I hand-weeded the Vanilla-Strawberry Hydrangea Bushes in front of the fishpond.

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

July 5

Love Yourself

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

Black despair surrounds the soul which is not at harmony with itself. The eye, turned inward, can be dismayed by the various imperfections which the eye seems to see in the self.

Yet this disparaging eye shuts the door to Spirit, which awaits self-acceptance that it may shine forth from the self to the glory of the Creator and for the blessing of those about one.

Condemnation of the self is never productive when it is done to the exclusion of the reaffirmation of the Love of that self which the Creator has made. Love yourself. Only then can you love your neighbor and the Creator of that Love which is you.

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

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, 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 April 10, 1994:

The question today has to do with communication, and what is it that we really communicate when we are speaking with each other. We live in an illusion. We experience the catalyst to help us grow. And we’re wondering… beyond the words of small talk, and the intentions and the emotions and the concepts and the way we say things, there seems to be something else of a deeper nature that is communicated when we really communicate. And we’re wondering what it is that is communicated, and how this works through the various forms and means of communication that we use?

(Carla channeling)

Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo, and we are most grateful to have been called to your session of working this afternoon. The topic is communication, and since we are communicating on communication, perhaps we have a theme this particular session.

Think back, if you will, to your experiences as trees, rocks, sunlight. In all of these states of beingness you have experienced the essence of the infinite Creator without reaching for any word or, indeed, any thing. The first and second densities are certainly filled with sound, however, there is little conversation. It is in the third density when the self becomes self-conscious, that the desire to communicate is born as a basic instinct and urge. Even the little child new to manifestation seeks for the sound of the parent, which communicates. The tiny infant has the instinct to select and prefer the sound vibrations made by the mother and the father, those figures who give sustenance and improve comfort. Already, before the infant becomes aware that words carry specific messages, this third-density entity instinctually is reaching for that sound, hoping for that comfort:  the human voice. Beyond all meanings of words, the human voice sings its way through life. Although few hear the music of spoken words, yet nevertheless, they do have tune and cadences. Subtle though these patterns may be, they carry the breath: the air which is breathed in and exhaled.

The essence of manifested third-density life is breath. This breath is that which signals the aliveness of the present moment. One who is able to breathe is that one who is alive now. The breath of life is deeply intertwined with the Spirit, both the Spirit within and that Spirit which strengthens. In a way, each time the human voice is heard, the tune is that of the infinite Creator whose property alone it is to give life.

This is the density wherein entities such as yourselves appear like flowers to bloom, blossom, bear fruit, wither, and die. During this natural process, which is instinctual to your flesh, the life within focuses upon the lessons of love which third density brings. These lessons are those given by each to each, shared back and forth across the seemingly uncrossable chasms betwixt entities. It is in this density that each has the opportunity to make the choice between service to self and service to others, and in the process of creating that first choice and then deepening that choice with successive ones, the human voice is everywhere.

Each entity spends much breath upon its own self, perhaps talking out loud even to the self, or if not, certainly carrying on internal conversation. In the attempt to discover the true point of balance that lies patiently within each and every human situation, if we may call it that, there is a kind of solitude native to third density that is never before and never afterwards experienced with the same intensity. That solitude, that feeling of aloneness, is due to the veil of forgetting having been dropped, so that those within your density simply cannot recall the unity betwixt the self and all others. This is the density where teachers are more and more important—those who are able to use their breath to speak support, comfort and challenge to those whom they would aid.

The question today has to do with communication, and what is it that we really communicate when we are speaking with each other? We live in an illusion. We experience the catalyst to help us grow.  And we’re wondering what it is that is communicated, and how this works through the various forms and means of communication that we use? Q’uo began by saying that second density trees, rocks, and sunlight always experience the essence of the Creator without any sounds being necessary, but it is in the third density that the desire to communicate with sound begins with the infant seeking the comfort of the sounds of the parent and eventually the sounds of the Spirit of the Creator within us gives life to words. Q’uo went on to say that it is in the third density, through the process of many incarnations, that we learn the lessons of love and communicate them in different ways in order to make the choice of service to others or to the self so that the human voice is heard at all times in this choice. Then Q’uo said that this choice comes from the situation of solitude that is experienced due to the veil of forgetting that requires that the interactions with others be used to find that true point of balance that exists in every human interaction which is based upon the unity of the self with all others. On March 19, 1989, Hatonn spoke of the unity of the self with all of the creation:

For as you have become familiar with the concept of unity of self with all of the creation, this concept indeed begins to make itself more obviously apparent, or shall we say, apparently obvious, as one sees the connections between the self and each particle of the creation, and begins to see that there is that of value in each portion of the creation and is that which might teach or inform the self as the self moves through its currently perceived experiences.

All this is to say, my sister, that your supposition, though correct in its foundation, is somewhat oversimplified, as is our explanation in response to it with the words we have used, for the nature of one’s being at the heart of one’s being partakes of this unity which is unshakable and is the primary foundation stone upon which all of the creation is built.

What is that essence which the human voice, then, carries? It is the essence of Love. Each voice you hear is the voice of the one infinite Creator, experienced through distortion upon distortion, yet, nevertheless, unmistakably alive, clear and vivid. Each voice is the voice of the one infinite Mystery. To relate to others within your density is often a difficult matter because the voice of the infinite Creator is a spontaneous one, whereas within your illusion it seems that, in many cases, events conspire to remove spontaneity. Then, the manners and the rights and rituals of words take over. The spontaneity drops away and the politeness, the courtesy, the cultural amenities take over. Yet, even with these meaningless conversations there is the vital essence of love carried within those sound vibrations, for love is not that which can be experienced directly. For the most part there is an indirect experience, the sensor web of the perception making choice upon choice concerning what is heard and what is said. Yet, faith and fellowship can be carried along the most meaningless conversation.

Fellow feeling is most valuable in a world in which each cannot know that another is a safe person to be next to. The darkness of the veil has dropped upon you, and though you can remember dimly how it was not to have to explain, not to have to do aught else except simply exist to be in full communication, still, those dim memories do not serve to carry one through the seemingly endless meetings and cycles of meetings and greetings that go on within your everyday existences.

Know that the human voice has great power. Know that when you vibrate your voice and speak, you are expressing beneath the words the essence of life as you are experiencing it. That is, you are expressing your breath—that which, when it is gone from your physical vehicle, shall signal your absence. How precious that breath! How short the time to use it well. Know that when you hear the human voice, you hear the infinite Creator in all of Its Love. Remember when you speak that the essence of that sound you make needs to be the Love of the infinite Creator. Your breath specifically expresses that Love. What shapes shall you place your sound vibrations into, then, to harmonize with that tune which is Love? May your speaking be a blessing. May you be blessed by an overwhelming number of voices of Love, for, truly, all you meet are Love.

Do we need to say that often this Love is in deep disguise? Therefore, may you always have the patience to wend your way through the dry and brittle valleys of difficult communication-clearing. May you have the faith to continue communicating past anger, past tears, until the words you speak are shapes that again harmonize withove.

Now Q’uo said that all we truly hear in the third density is the voice of the Love of the Creator which we hear in a distorted way because so many rites and rituals in our lives conspire to take us away from hearing the Creator’s voice of Love. Then Q’uo said that even with these meaningless conversations the essence of Love is always within these words because Love cannot be experienced directly, so our faith and fellowship will carry us through to Love. Q’uo went on to say that our voice, the breath of our life, is that which is speaking the Love of the Creator; and we are being the Love of the Creator; and everyone that we meet is also the voice of the Creator’s Love, so we should never let anger, tears, or any confusion keep us from continuing our communication until we are able to harmonize with Love again. On May 12, 1985, Hatonn said that we are all the voice of the Creator:

As the evening rays begin to fall upon your dwelling, you can feel before you the swelling maturity of the earth about you, the weighty roll of the waters onto the earth, and the majesty of the eternal sky. It is a wondrous creation, and the silence of the Creator pervades it, deeper, more quiet, more peaceful than can be imagined outside of meditation. And yet, just as much a part of the Creator are all the sounds made by children, colleagues, wives, husbands, children, and friends. Each is the voice of the Creator, filtered through many biases. There are times when two recognize each other, and for a magical period of the incarnation there seem to be no biases; communication seems clear; and life seems ebullient. It is rare that these periods extend throughout the incarnational experience. Nevertheless, we may suggest to each of you that memories of times when closeness had been achieved are very helpful in orienting the self towards the discovery of the biases that separate you from that same harmony at a more difficult time.

We would close this meeting through the one known as Jim. We thank this instrument. We are those of Q’uo.

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and in light. At this time we would ask if there are any queries to which we may speak—those thoughts upon your minds which have arisen during our speaking.

Questioner: I have a question for Q’uo. I wanted to ask, as we attempt to be of service to others, can we help others communicate? Can we help them with improving their communication… not really having a good grasp of it ourselves?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. As you speak and exchange experiences with those about you, you are aiding in every aspect of each entity’s evolution, for there is no other thing that can be done. All experience is the Creator experiencing Itself. Thus, you may partake more and more fully in this identity as the Creator as you are able to engage more of your own being in that which you experience.

We realize that you ask about ways to serve others, and appreciate the dedication that you express. We wish to give you the comfort of knowledge that tells you that you aid others well by each activity you undertake, for there are indeed no mistakes. And we encourage each to continue to seek the deepest level of communication with the self and with all other selves. Thus, you consciously move yourselves in the direction of your realized unification.

Is there another query, my brother?

Questioner: Yes, I would ask you if… I’ll say the question this way: as you, as I, as someone who attempts to be of service tries to communicate with another, is it possible to do this by just opening yourself inside to the unspoken words and questions of the other person, and perhaps say no words and yet still communicate your desire to help just by listening? Are there any… do you have to actually speak the words, because of free will, to be of service? Is that a clear question?

I am Q’uo, and am indeed aware of your query, my brother. We would take those words which you have spoken well—the concept of opening the self to the desire to serve—and suggest that this is a foundation stone upon which your service to others may be built, and indeed in some instances this may be the only activity necessary. However, in most of your endeavors with other selves you will find it is also helpful to offer one’s self when the need is seen in a more outward fashion. However, the beginning of any service is that opening of the heart to the concept of service and to the desire to serve.

Is there another query, my brother?

Questioner: No, thank you, but that is all for me and [inaudible].

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

Questioner: Yes, I have one. Aside from the physical communication human beings have, is there something deeper that goes between two people when they’re talking? Aside from… I know you spoke of the love, or breath… Are there other energies that are being communicated during conversation?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. Indeed, at the heart of each communication and all experience there is a portion of the Creator which seeks Itself. Thus, there is the yearning between those portions of the One which have traveled outward from the One, traveling through the One, seeking the One, and becoming again that which is One, while realizing that there has always been only One.

Is there any other query, my brother?

Questioner: No, not at this time. I think I’ll give that one some thought.

Carla: So, each conversation is a love song. Is that what you’re saying? The yearning to… The voice is actually that expression of not having made it back to unity yet, and there’s a yearning. Is that right?

I am Q’uo, and you are quite eloquently correct, my sister. Is there another query?

Carla: No, but thank you. That was a great thought there.

I am Q’uo, and we agree that there is no greater thought than that which posits the song of the Creator as the great chant of the Universe.

Is there a final query at this time?

Questioner: I’ll just say that I wish to communicate that you have communicated [inaudible] to this group [inaudible] Confederation. Thank you very much.

Questioner: Thank you, Q’uo.

I am Q’uo, and we again give our great gratitude to each present for sharing with us your seeking, your questions, and your sense of unity. We appreciate your effort immensely, and walk with you upon this journey, rejoicing with each step, each experience, each exchange.

We shall take our leave of your group only in an illusory fashion at this time, for in truth, we shall always walk with you. We are known to you as those of Q’uo, and we leave each in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai.

This morning I went outside and decided to begin weeding all of my flower gardens because we got two inches of rain last night, and weeds are likely to come out by the roots when the ground is wet. I began by weeding the Ruins Garden, the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden, and the astilbe garden by hand.

This afternoon I went back outside and weeded the Yellow Creeping Jenny Garden by hand. We got another inch and a half of rain this afternoon, so tomorrow I look forward to more weeding by hand in the rest of the yard.

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

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

July 4

Where Is Freedom?

I am the presence of Jesus the Christ in the world today. I greet you in the full consciousness of divine Love.

This is the day of American freedom, the day of flags and celebrations. As you look around you, behind the smiles of celebration lie great discords and this you see: discord between man and self, between man and man, between mates, between parents and children, and between nation and nation.

You may then think to yourself that freedom is not full. Yet we say to you that you are free, that your freedom is in Christ, and that you have the freedom to extend hands of divine love, peace, and unity, eyes that smile with consolation and pardon.

You have the spirit that makes the broken whole. You need only ask, for the spirit of Christ is with you all, and Its peace embraces all, both now and evermore.

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.

2024-07-03

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from April 3, 1994:

N has asked us to ask for specific and particular information on the topic of the rays, the energy centers, and the bodies associated with the energy centers. We are aware of the difficulty Q’uo has in giving such information if it infringes upon people’s free will, and we would like to ask what Q’uo could tell N or what direction Q’uo could point N in since he is a healer with a great desire to be of service to others? How can N get more expansive responses from Q’uo?

(Carla channeling)

Greetings in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of the principle of Q’uo, and we thankfully bless each for asking us to share our thoughts on healing. It is this instrument’s day of rejoicing. The Eastertide, as it is called, the time when the ultimate healing, the resurrection of that which is dead into new life takes place within this mythical system of faith. It is most appropriate, for a question upon healing is at base a question about death, transformation, and resurrection.

That which is considered among your peoples, as we have said before, is far more often the curing of a condition. This in no way breaks into the storehouse, the treasure house, where each soul’s totality of living is recorded and saved. Rather, it manipulates a manifestation. To focus upon the healing systems is most efficacious for the medical practitioners, and the detailed information which is collected by the various processes of medical investigation are also most efficacious at altering the manifestation, the clothing of flesh that the human body, so-called, is in essence.

For us to move into a mode of expressing or assigning various phases of medical practice associated with various items within the body, or your so-called subtle bodies, is simply more of the same. However, we continue to be most eager to serve. This is an interesting subject and a fruitful one. We cannot be those who shape another’s answers for them or learn for them, for that would be infringement upon free will. However, perhaps since the query was asking us to express any comments we might have, perhaps we may be able to find some solid ground upon which to get a firm stance. We shall attempt to bridge the gap between where we, as this instrument would say, are coming from and where the one known as N comes from.

It is our perception that healing takes place when the integrity of the field which is the soul or spirit—that is, the essence of an entity—is maximized. This maximum integrity of field occurs at an unique position within the nexus of the various bodies, wherever within that nexus that that one entity is at that one particular time. Not only is each entity unique but each entity is continuously changing between vibrations. Rare is the individual in third density that can attain and maintain maximum integrity or health, even for a moment. Those who come the closest are those whose balance is seen by others, perhaps, to be above the ordinary.

We use the term, balance, to convey a situation in which the various energy centers of the physical, mental, emotional, and so forth bodies are at a state where there is a clear strength or center and a comfort in the, shall we say, fit of the energy distribution. An entity which is in this kind of balance may be thought to have attained a high degree of wellness or health. When entities become ill, the physical aspects of this situation are more clear or evident than other portions of the situation causing illness. When work is done upon the physical body, then, the manifestation may change. However, if the entity has not had the process encouraged wherein that entity moves towards balance then the physician has done work only skin deep.

N is a healer, and he wanted his question to be asked of Q’uo: “N has asked for us to ask for specific and particular information on the topic of the rays, the energy centers, and the bodies associated with the energy centers.” Q’uo began their response by saying that since this session was taking place during the time of Easter it would be appropriate to talk about the ultimate form of healing as being that which is the resurrection of that which was dead into new life. Then Q’uo said that most of the efforts at healing in traditional medical practice focus upon curing a manifestation of the human body rather than entering the storehouse where the soul’s totality of living is recorded and saved. Q’uo went on to say that true healing takes place when the integrity of the soul is maximized within the intersection of the various bodies of an entity which is unique for each entity, and which changes from time to time. Then Q’uo said that it is the balance of the various energy centers of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies that reflects true health, but when the physician only works upon the body, its manifestation may change so that true healing has not occurred. On May 29, 1994, Q’uo spoke of one way that true healing may be achieved:

However, in actuality prayer is the most direct way of healing, for true healing is the restoration of all energies to their rightful balance. But how to pray and how to aid patients in praying? Firstly, we would suggest that it be told to patients who are interested in helping themselves in this wise, concerning the physical place where he or she might pray, where in a specific environment shall the prayers be, how long shall they be given, of what shall they consist, thereby aiding the seeker in its growing ability to visualize this as a real and efficacious healing mode.

Now, we realize that the modest aim of most medical practitioners in your society is to do precisely that—to cause the mechanism to work properly once more. It may seem that we continually retreat from talking about healing because we are continually retreating from changing the physical manifestation of illness. When we wish to consider healing, we then must orient ourselves and you to whom we are attempting to share some of these thoughts to a new emphasis, that emphasis being upon the essence of a person, as you would call it.

We do not distinguish in a way that makes psychiatrists more able to cure than the surgeon or the general practitioner. No, indeed, for the outpourings of the mental/emotional complex within an entity within incarnation are of much the same detailed and non-unique kind as physical symptomology. It is not mind or emotion or body that is healed in healing work, but, rather, the entity, whole and full of integrity. You hear of the phrase, “integrated personality.” This perhaps catches a notion of that to which we point as a starting place.

What psychologists and psychiatrists may mean by a well integrated personality is along the lines of symptomology. That is, the ego this and the id that. However, it does fasten upon the concept that all the various parts of the mental/emotional complex of thoughts form a kind of energy grid, a pattern of usual associations which have been used in concert enough that the entity has become comfortable and in balance as a personality with this particular way of expressing.

What the healer does in healing is provide, on some level, catalyst which will alert the higher self of the entity to be healed. The more powerful and effective the healing the closer to the heart of essence of self that the healer shall come. In other words, the more effective the healer, the more accurate the touch upon the point of balance is, that is, the healer meets the entity to be healed where that entity to be healed is not yet. Healing comes from a new perspective, not from moving about to find one which is already pursued.

How can the healer do this? Each healer works differently. For some there is the healing touch. For some the healing word. For some the skill of various of your resources such as the gems, the massage, the—we cannot give this concept to this instrument well—the plumb line, shall we say. This is not the correct term… that which dangles from the held string and moves eccentrically—the dowsing, shall we say. These skills vary from healer to healer. What each healer has in common is a gift which the healer simply shares with the one to be healed. The work is done, not by the healer, but by that entity to be healed’s own self which, because of the catalyst of the healer, has the opportunity to select in an integrated fashion a more balanced configuration of energies.

In each case this configuration and its change is unique. The human animal, shall we say, is wired eccentrically. By this we mean to indicate that each entity has an unique pattern, not simply to the physical body, but to all bodies. Each wiring system functions a little differently from any other; some to the extent of functioning backwards. Consequently, the strength of healing is the strength of the field within which the healer and the one to be healed rest during that time when the interaction between the two essences creates that moment which allows new choice.

We thank the one known as N for continuing to hope and to have faith that there is a better, more universal way to heal. We are glad to continue to work with this entity. However, we would express that we simply refrain from certain levels of specificity, for when an instrument such as this one seeks repetitively to attain specific material when the same query is asked several times and there is not the new awareness to the questioning, when this situation exists there is in the relationship of questioner to the truth of, shall we say, the hangman and the one to be hanged.

Then Q’uo repeated that rather than attempting to change the manifestation of disease of the mind, the emotions, or the body in healing, what true healing attempts to do is to heal the essence of the person, its “integrated personality.” Then Q’uo said that the healer works with the mental/emotional energy grid of the one to be healed in a manner that brings them into a balanced way of being. Then the healer contacts the higher self of the one to be healed, and the higher self brings the one to be healed to a new perspective or essence of itself. Q’uo went on to say that the healer does this by a variety of ways such as the healing touch, the healing word, the massage, and the pendulum so that the healer offers the one to be healed the opportunity to heal itself. Q’uo completed their reply by saying that this process is unique for each person and could be described by saying that: “the strength of healing is the strength of the field within which the healer and the one to be healed rest during that time when the interaction between the two essences creates that moment which allows new choice.” On May 6, 1993, Q’uo described one way that a healer may share its talents:

The healer’s skill, then, is to a great extent involved in continuing to attempt to match the basic vibratory rate of the self with the vibratory rate of the one original Thought which is infinite intelligence or Love.

It is well that a healer not consider its detailed picture of balanced health as perceived by the self. The more skillful attitude is to persist in whatever circumstances with the attempt to move the vibrational focus in tuning to as close to the original Logos as possible in any given circumstance.

Again, with that entity to be healed, the preparation involved is a surrender to one’s own frailty as a being within incarnation, and to rejoice in the energy which is being shared, and to cultivate a willingness to experience change. None of this, however, has to do with the relative balance within. What we would like to make clear is that neither healer nor patient must need approach perfection. If the heart speaks its desire when the healer moves into readiness to heal, this energy of heart is the key empowerment which creates the open flow of the infinite love and light of the Creator.

[Carla stops channeling and challenges what was just channeled.]

(Carla channeling)

I am Q’uo. We thank this instrument. We are having some difficulty with this information. There is some interest in this particular session, and we have good contact, but it is to be noted that when the specificity of information is requested, especially more than once, there develops a kind of specious interest which attracts those who would mimic our thoughts long enough to detune the channel. If the one who is channeling continually accepts such assignments and within its own self continues to ask for this information we are then unable to continue holding to a truly protected channel. And the general course of such is that we lose that particular channel who has been turned to other uses by those who seek other than as we do; that is, those who are interested in service to self.

This is not particularly easy to understand. And we would be glad to work with these questions as long as necessary. However, we applaud this group’s awareness of this particular pitfall, and we encourage this group to continue in its fidelity and its willingness to fail, if failure is the higher truth to witness to.

Are there any queries at this time?

[Pause]

I am Q’uo. To the one known as N may we say that the ones of Hatonn greet you. We thank our brother again for the purity of its interest and we hope we may aid. We have so enjoyed this quiet hour with each of you. May we bless each once more and thank each for the level of desire and purity of intent. We leave you only in voice, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are those of Q’uo. Adonai. Adonai.

This morning I went outside and transplanted 12 begonias into the small flower garden behind the fishpond as the deer had eaten most of the flowers a few days ago. Then I used my backpack blower to blow the small tree limbs in the pet cemetery and surrounding area into a large pile and put them into three garbage cans.

This afternoon I had a follow-up appointment with my foot doctor to let him know that the callous that he removed from my left foot two weeks ago is in good shape. Then I got some gas for my car, Stanley, at the Speedway Gas Station. My third stop was at  Paul’s Fruit Market to pick up some food for myself. My last stop was at the vet’s to pick up some insulin syringes for Bosco.

The Strength Of Waiting

I am of the principle of the Love of Jesus Christ, that perfect Love which is the Love of creation. Still, I come forth from the Christ principle to be the agent of the consciousness of Love.

Those who seek hastily and fervently for us may not find us, for we come to those who rest in the strength of waiting and expectancy of hope and quietness toward our presence.

Though we are a fair portion of each situation and each excursion into illusion, to be efficacious in joining our spirit to human will, you must wait for Spirit and ask Spirit to enter. Thus it is in quietness that the Spirit comes and speaks to one who wills to hear that soft voice which may create and transform the outer circumstances. For the inner experience of grace allows one to see for the first time the outer circumstance with the lines of Spirit drawn in the pencil of Love, so that the way of inner Spirit to outer manifestation of created Love becomes clear.

We leave you in the anticipation of each discovery of the Spirit. We leave you in the peace of the consciousness of Love, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

2024-07-01

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

This afternoon our question is: “How is it that the Creator steps down His, or Her, or Its conscious being in order to occupy a physical body and utilize the various rays of the bodies and have an incarnation?”

(Carla channeling)

We are those of Q’uo. Greetings in the love and in the light of the infinite One. We cherish this opportunity to share our vibrations and our thoughts with you. It is a privilege to be able to respond to your call, and we most thankfully do so. As always, we ask that each use his personal discrimination in hearing our opinion, releasing that which is not part of your personal truth at this time and taking only that which has touched a sympathetic chord within you.

You ask this day how the Creator has stepped down its selfhood in, and to experience as, a third-density entity. The shortest and most bluntly accurate answer to the query is that the Creator has not stepped down this selfhood in anywise, in any density, or circumstance. The truth is the Creator; the rest is illusion. All that you strive to comprehend, you already know. All that you strive to be, you already are. However, free will so dances with each entity in this Creatorhood. Thus each entity becomes unique within illusion and the oddity and peculiarity through illusion is valuable.

However, let us move back to the point that the Creator is manifest in you and in all whom you see. Similarly, as regards healing. The healing is already perfected. Insofar as the entity wishing can lay hold of the vibrations which are those chosen to the original Vibration, just to that extent has the individual opened the self to a new reality with illusion. The vibration of selfhood is seldom grasped. The basic vibration of a self, or entity, is the vibration which is identical to the vibration of Love, this overlaid by the range of vibrations presently enjoyed and which contains undertones begins the history, shall we say, of accumulated vibratory processes. An entity, then, is as powerful metaphysically as the degree of awareness of the original Vibration which it can lay hold of and sustain an intimate relationship with.

It is difficult, we know, to even contemplate or ideate the situation in which you, in all of the glorious imperfection of hastening life, are yet the Creator. This truth is basic and many paths to the Creator posit this in one way or another. Each within third density is conscious of himself. This self-consciousness is a great prize. The awareness of self is at one and the same time a great burden. Prize and burden. Self-consciousness opens the door to entities working consciously upon the self to the end of becoming more wise, more secure, more filled with charity and many other human reasons. This self-consciousness is a kind of anguish, the looking in the mirror. It is the great tool of third density.

If an entity should be able, within manifestation, to focus fully within the consciousness of self this hypothetical individual would feel the full force of Godhead or Creatorship. Needless to say, few there are who have even touched that quality of self-awareness while in manifestation. Indeed, the plight of humans dealing with their creatorship is much like that of the swimmers in the ocean which is a mile deep. That of which the swimmer is aware barely even scratches the surface of the sea. And so it is with consciousness that all the highs and lows of thought encompass merely the surface of selfhood, for that surface is the surface whose depths cry out in praise of the one infinite Creator. Does the Creator, then, praise Itself? Yes, this is so. All of creation sings a hymn of praise and thanks. This is the vibration of being; this is your nature. Insofar as one may lay hold on this truth and allow it to be described within, some learning shall occur.

The question for this session was: “How is it that the Creator steps down His, or Her, or Its conscious being in order to occupy a physical body and utilize the various rays of the bodies and have an incarnation?” Q’uo began their reply by saying that the Creator does not step down its selfhood, for all entities are the Creator, that we are already a unique expression of the Creator, and all else is illusion. Then Q’uo said that each entity is as metaphysically powerful as it is aware of it being the infinite Vibration of Love and its ability to sustain an intimate relationship with It. Q’uo went on to say that it is hard to imagine that each entity in all of its imperfections is the Creator, but each will discover a unique path to the realization of the Creator because of these imperfections.  Q’uo continued by saying that if an entity were aware of the true nature of its being it would feel the full nature of its Creatorship, but most entities are unaware of this truth. However, Q’uo said that in the depths of each entity it cries out in praise of the one infinite Creator which is much like the Creator praising Itself. Q’uo said that if we can become aware of this truth, and allow it to be described within, some learning shall occur. On July 8, 1984, Hatonn described the true nature of all entities as the infinite Creator:

Just so, my friends, you are we, and we all are the Creator. To put it in quite another way, the unimaginable vastness and complexity of the universe is honed on the sharpness of the one Thought and that is Love. That word, Love, has been greatly harmed by overuse among your peoples, so that when we say that all is Love, it may not mean what we wish it to mean. Therefore, we try to find infinitely various ways of saying that all is Light, that all is One, that all is the Creator, that all that you have to do within your illusion is serve each other, for in serving each other you serve the Creator.

In other terms, for we are aware that this query was asked for various reasons, the identity or vibration of Love at the moment of creation was given all of the densities and sub-densities, those coming into being in an inevitable pattern representing the settled view of the infinite intelligence which regarded the creation prior to your own. Thusly each of you walks a trail which was improved and embellished by selves walking before and in the unimaginable time when time has stopped and started again, another creation shall experience the Creator with densities and sub-densities now improved, because of the experiences of selves at this time, in this creation.

We would wish to speak of an experience this instrument had earlier in this day. The situation was grave. A soul lay close to dying. The priest with that soul was reading the prayers of ministry to the sick. With each prayer and affirmation, the sick man became calmer, but he could not hear well, so the priest raised his voice, reading the Twenty-third Psalm. “The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.” The patient became comfortable and as the last verse was spoken, “Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow you, all the days of your life and you shall dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.” The man simply stopped breathing. It was a good death. This entity knew that he was in the house of the Lord, forever, and fear had no more place within him and the healing took place, instantly. It was a healing death. Insofar as each of you is aware that you dwell in the house of the Lord, forever, so also have you encountered and taken in a great truth.

The mind is far more powerful than any other force within your experience. What you know or think you know creates your illusion. Therefore, it is well to know what you know, to build only what you personally have experienced, and know from an organic and involved viewpoint. For the deepest part of what you know is what you are, not what you do or say. In this situation where there is illness and the heart cries for healing, the healing is that intangible process where the mind becomes aware of a more powerful field of energy than that expressed by the sickness. The physician may work upon the mechanical and chemical aspects of a body, tinkering with the mechanism and oiling the dry spots, as it were, but the actual state of that body is quenched by what the entity knows, or is. To put it another way, the highest energy an entity can access either consciously or unconsciously determines how much the ills of flesh shall move according to the rules of manifestation, in general.

The more sure awareness an entity has of the illusory nature of an illness, then the less this illness can actually create in the way of sickness. If there is a basic key to healing as opposed to curing, it is this: the awareness of the entity moves to that place where that entity feels sure this is reality, where that energy is when the entity states to itself, “This is who I am.” This is, indeed, who that entity is, where that entity will move, what limitation this will attend for learning and what suffering it shall enjoy as it learns. Each of you controls the degree of healing within by that which you know, that which you are, that which you desire, those three things. We encourage each to make a practice of knowing the Creator in self. The Creator is all. We encourage each to be that loving vibration first, and words and actions second.

We encourage each to desire only the most high truth, to desire far beyond that which can be stated or imagined, for as you seek, your thirst is expressed in the outstretched call of soul to all that resonates with it. So is attracted to that entity ministers of light, shall we say, drawn to you justly and appropriately in accordance with that for which you have desire. Therefore, lift your desires even higher. Seek to know that true and real vibration which is your identity. He who can vibrate with this desire is moving as quickly as possible along the trail of the pilgrim.

Now Q’uo said that as each of us moves through the octave of densities we are traveling a path that was created by the Love, or Logos, of infinite intelligence, and when this octave is completed the entities of the next octave shall walk a path that each of us has created in this octave. Then Q’uo spoke of Carla being with a dying man when the priest was reading from the Twenty Third Psalms: “Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow you, all the days of your life, and you shall dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.” And then the man died instantly as he no longer had any fear of death, so his death was a healing death. Q’uo continued by saying that what we know from our personal experience at the deepest level of our being is who we are, so the highest energy that we can access either consciously or unconsciously will determine how our bodily ills will be manifested.  Then Q’uo said: “Each of you controls the degree of healing within by that which you know, that which you are, that which you desire, those three things. We encourage each to make a practice of knowing the Creator in self. The Creator is all. We encourage each to be that loving vibration first, and words and actions second.” Q’uo completed their reply by suggesting that each should seek the highest truth in order to attract the ministers of light so that they might know the real nature of their identity as this is the fastest way to travel the path of the pilgrim. On July 5, 1981, Hatonn confirmed that the Creator is within all entities:

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

We would stop at this time and ask if there is any query, now that we have given this much material?

Jim: Not from me, Q’uo. I appreciate very much what you said. There is a lot to think about there.

Questioner: I don’t have a question, Q’uo.

Q’uo: We thank you, my brothers. We are unwilling to speak further upon this topic until there has been the mulling over and perhaps the direction taken for further querying. Therefore, we shall leave the subject. Before we leave the instrument, however, we would simply say a few words.

This instrument has no [emphasized] idea what we would have to say, so we shall have to ask this instrument to quit thinking, or we shall not be able to speak.

[Pause]

We ask each to breathe deeply. Take three or four breaths.

[Pause while this is done.]

My brothers and sister, we would speak with you concerning relaxation. Each of you is a keen and careful student of the mystery of life and eternity. You are concerned, metaphysically, to know and to understand, to grasp and to accelerate your learning, spiritually. Further, each of you is a careful and studious worker, always attempting to do the best. In relationships with people, each attempts always to give the best. This is all admirable and we do not fault this, however, it is a common and understandable error of the earnest and idealistic entity so to enmire the self within the strictures of desire and learning the heart forgets how to skip the mind, to sing. All entities need and crave not only the metaphysical truths, but also the immediate experiences which in their authenticity outrank the highest understanding.

We ask each in the days and weeks to come, to deliberate—we correct this instrument—to be deliberate about releasing the self into an immediate appreciation of the environment of your earth. To breathe in and breathe out, knowing that partnership with all living things. To feel the heart lift because the sun is golden, or the moon serene and beautiful. Even within the dwelling that earth and health and energy may be instantaneously pulled upward into the body and the body’s awareness by the direction of the will. Each entity has their feet upon the floor. We ask each entity—we correct this instrument—we ask each entity whose foot is on the floor to think that foot into contact with earth. Can you feel that energy now coming in the soles of the feet? It is your surety that this is possible that makes this possible.

You do not have to be amongst the trees and the grasses to get the energy of the earth to strengthen you, but you must be able to, by your will, assert that relationship and send out that attraction of desire. It is not wise to attempt to be too serious. It is wise to be the fool and be foolish regularly. For there is truth not just in the earnest and serious things of metaphysics, there is also much truth in the playful, in the energetic fun.

Therefore, we ask each please to attempt to open the self to lightness, merriment, fun, relaxation and the deep breathing that expands the mind, the soul, and the point of view. Hurry not. Cease rushing. Spend more time being. These things we encourage this circle, for the circle is very serious [humorously].

Q’uo ended this session with some words of advice and observed that seekers are usually trying to be of service in any way that they can with the highest of intentions, but they suggested that in this desire and learning the heart forgets how to relax, skip the mind, and to sing as this is more authentic than seeking the metaphysical truths. They went on to suggest that each student make a connection with the natural environment of the sun, the moon, and the feet upon the earth to feel that earth energy coming into the soles of the feet. Q’uo said that this was a way of replacing too much seriousness in the spiritual path with the playfulness of the fool, of developing a sense of humor, having fun, ceasing rushing, and spending more time just being. On December 16, 1990, Q’uo spoke of the value of a sense of humor:

That which your peoples call the sense of humor is, indeed, most helpful to any entity, no matter the position upon the path, or the placement within the life pattern. We see that which you call the sense of humor as being a sense of proportion where an entity is able to gain enough experience within the life that one may see a broader view. One stands upon a somewhat more elevated position, building experience upon experience, until that which you call wisdom is begun.

There is much in every entity’s life pattern and daily round of activities which lends itself to humor, nothing so much as the entity itself as it attempts to make a sense of and to form a cohesion from many disparate parts of the life which seem not to be held together well at all. There are innumerable instances in every entity’s life during which the entity will find itself playing the complete fool. This, in your mundane way of seeing things, often lends to the feeling of insecurity, doubt, and wondering if there will ever be a time where the entity will have control of itself and be able to do that which it wishes, when it wishes, and in the manner it wishes. We would utilize your sense of humor at moments such as this, if we were in your position, in order that we might be reminded that each of us contains those elements which are less than ideal, but are completely acceptable as portions of a personality that one attempts to discipline as one would the wayward child, in order that the lessons set before one might be learned with more efficiency.

Balance in all things, my dear ones. We thank each for this delightful opportunity and would, at this time, transfer the contact to the one known as Jim. We are those of Q’uo.

This morning I began watering various gardens in the front and side of my house since it has been a while since we have had rain. Then I made a trip to The Home Depot to buy another sprinkler as the one I have now is not working right. When I got home two cubic yards of garden dirt were delivered to my home, and I had the Landscaping Company dump the dirt at the far end of the pet cemetery.

This afternoon I loaded three garden carts full of the garden dirt to the pyramid that I am building out of the clay tile pipes that I have made a pyramid out of and filled the last of the pipes with the dirt. Now I will let the upcoming rains settle the dirt down before I buy the flowers to transplant in the pyramid. The I transplanted the petunias that I bought yesterday into the flower garden in the middle of the Moss Garden and into a couple of the pots of petunias around the fishpond that needed more flowers.

The Myth Of Reality

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

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

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

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

We leave you in the profound peace of the reality of the consciousness of Love, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

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

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

(Carla channeling)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[Side one of tape ends.]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Natural Darkness Of Flesh

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

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

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

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

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

We leave you in peace, both now and through eternity. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

2024-06-29

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from February 6, 1994:

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

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

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

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

(Carla channeling)

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

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

Jim: Yes, that’s fine.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We would at this time request the first query.

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

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

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

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

[Laughter]

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

[Singing]

(Carla channeling)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is there another query?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[Side one of tape ends.]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healing Unwellness

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

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

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

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

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

We leave you in the peace and the love of Jesus the Christ. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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