I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 103 quote today comes from Chapter Two and the section on seeing all as the Creator:

Seeing all as the Creator

For in service to another, inevitably you are serving yourself. For as many philosophies upon your planet have stated, the universe and all that is in it are one being, and no more, with each being and each particle within it being exactly that: one particle within a whole, all united within consciousness and spirit. And through this unification comes about the undeniable fact that service to one is service to all, and to oneself. You, my friends, are the Creator and the gods which are spoken of in the scriptures, as is everyone and everything within this universe. Accept separations within your consciousness, and they shall exist temporarily for you. But deny them, my friends, and the ones which you have been accepting for so long shall begin to fade from your awareness. And you shall begin to awaken to the true concept of oneness. And you shall begin to know the truth: that there are no separations. Hatonn, December 7, 1975

Carla channeled this quote from Hatonn five years before the Ra contact began, and yet it stated as well as ever has been stated how all of us are one. As Ra said in their first contact with us they were bringing us a slightly different slant upon a message which is “always and ever the same.” Some people call it the “perennial philosophy” that has been espoused throughout the history of the mystical experience on Earth and which Q’uo describes eloquently and in detail in this quote:


We have only one truth to offer, one thought. All the rest is embellishment and various ways of discussing that thought and its implications. This thought is that which is a Logos, a Thought so creative and so primary that it forms that which is both Creator and created. That one great original Thought is Love. Within the system of organized religion that you call Christianity there are the words, “In the beginning was the Word.” This is the Word of which we speak. That word that created all was and is and shall be love, yet love as you understand it is most pale and weak compared to that vital love which both creates and destroys.

Within this love are all things visible and invisible. Each consciousness listening to these words is a complex which is love and which manifests in various forms of love. Many are the distortions of that love, yet the energy within them, no matter how great the distortion, is that of love. Often in the attempts to progress either emotionally, mentally, physically or spiritually various things are attempted, tested and tried to see whether they be resources or be found wanting. And so as the seeking soul moves through the moment by moment living out of that love which is all that there is, many structures are tried within which the experience of living makes more sense.

The query this evening concerns one such structure. Within this structure which is not original to us but [is] an amiable portion of the perennial philosophy [that] that which meets the physical senses is to be seen as the reflection of self, your medical doctors consider that various people are seen by the self to be, as the one known as Jim said in his query, projecting onto others that which is actually within. This can be taken too far quite handily, and we would suggest a tempering of the ease with which generalities are made, for indeed all possible actions, motives and ideas whatsoever are a portion of each consciousness which hears these words. All things are one. The self seems to be separate and seems to have a certain personality. This is largely an illusion, the illusion having been created so that the consciousnesses within it could do work and thereby progress spiritually. Within this illusion other entities shall almost always seem to be other, for it is only within the intimacy of intense catalyst, the love-making or the shared creative experience or the laughter that ends in tears, that hearts become so close as to perceive their actual unity, one with the other. Q’uo, December 11, 1994.

In short, we all have the Creator within us, and no matter where we go or what we do, we are the Creator knowing Itself, seeking Itself, and serving Itself. All of the illusions of separation that exist in this third-density are the Creator. They are other versions of ourselves as we all partake in that grand procession through the octave of densities back into total union with the one infinite Creator. What a grand and glorious dance it is as Q’uo described:

There are many, many entities that move upon this great journey of seeking, that move as in a dance, in a harmony that is unseen by those who do not look, and yet they dance to the tune, to the beat of the heart of the one infinite Creator. Yes, all dance and move in rhythmic patterns. The balance in all of the creation is one and is perfect. That which each does as his or her own contribution to this great dance and journey of seeking is that which has been planned aforetimes, shall we say. There is a pattern to movement, a pattern to thought, a pattern to seeking, a pattern to suffering, a pattern to all that is. Q’uo, October 17, 1999.

This afternoon I went outside and began work on the huge sycamore tree in the back yard that my sump pump technician recommended on the hollowed out portion of the tree that begins on the ground. It is big enough to be able to get inside it, and it looks like either termites or ants have been responsible for creating this great gap in the base of the tree that threatens to bring the tree down at some point in the future. A few years ago I had a tree service put two cables on the three main trunks to keep the tree from falling. The technician recommended scraping away all of the heart rot material possible and I got about five 5-gallon buckets full of this dead material. Then I used the sprayer on the garden hose to spray any remaining dust pieces out of the hole. I have ordered some insecticide to use in the next couple of days and some undercoating sealing to paint over the inside of the cavity so no further deterioration occurs.

You Have Good Gifts

I am the spirit of the full consciousness of love in the vibration which comforts this instrument. I greet you in the love of Jesus Christ.

The nature of the Comforter is both particular and personal. Yet it does not expend itself in the movement from the winds of opportunity to the heart of one who prays that the Holy Spirit may therein enter.

The same principle which enlivens your heart and engages your attention in a spiritually rewarding manner may also then be used by you to show forth the glory of God to others. There is no deadness in the spirit, for all are alive in Jesus Christ.

Therefore, know that you have good gifts and are not going to find it necessary to act for your Lord without the help of the Holy Spirit. It was truly said that until the ending of the age Jesus would never leave His flock, for we are the principle of Jesus Christ and of the nature of Christ’s consciousness. Thusly you and we work together to shine the light of peace and understanding upon a world which does not yet understand that all that exists is, alike, holy.

We wish you 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. The quote from 103 today comes from Chapter Two and the section on opening the heart in unconditional love:

Opening the heart in unconditional love

“So the first thing that we would suggest to those who wish to open the heart and to live in the open heart is to refrain from attempting to give the self a spiritual grade. Avoid thoughts of how you are doing. They will come regardless of whether you encourage them or not, but it is your choice if you are wise to allow those thoughts to come and go, for within the illusion that you have worked so hard to enter it is almost impossible to be aware of how one is actually serving. One must simply serve in faith and allow that faith to be sufficient.” Q’uo, January 19, 1997

Carla used to say that you can’t take your own spiritual temperature. What she meant is that there is no way that you can know how you are doing on your journey of seeking the truth since this is not the density of understanding, as Ra often said. But it is hard not to judge ourselves from time to time—especially when we have experiences that feel disharmonious. We know we want to grow spiritually, so we create some kind of a framework of acceptable and unacceptable thoughts and behaviors. So as we attempt to see how we are all things and that the Creator is within us, there is another step along the way that can aid us in realizing the Creator within us, and that is opening our hearts in unconditional love for ourselves and for everyone else. This isn’t necessarily an easy thing to do. It took me most of my life to accomplish it. In this quote Ra spoke to my situation:

59.3 Questioner: I have a question from Jim that states: “I think I have penetrated the mystery of my lifelong anger at making mistakes. I think I have always been aware subconsciously of my abilities to master new learnings, but my desire to successfully complete my mission on Earth has been energized by the Orion group into irrational and destructive anger when I fail. Could you comment on this observation?”

Ra: I am Ra. We would suggest that as this entity is aware of its position as a wanderer, it may also consider what pre-incarnative decisions it undertook to make regarding the personal, or self-oriented, portion of the choosing to be here at this particular time/space. This entity is aware, as stated, that it has great potential, but potential for what? This is the pre-incarnative question.

The work of sixth density is to unify wisdom and compassion. This entity abounds in wisdom. The compassion it is desirous of balancing has, as its antithesis, lack of compassion. In the more conscious being this expresses or manifests itself as lack of compassion for self. We feel this is the sum of suggested concepts for thought which we may offer at this time without infringement.

The way I pre-incarnatively learned compassion for myself was to do what Dr. Michael Newton described in his book, The Journey of the Soul, as “opposites programming.” I programmed lack of compassion, or anger, at myself when I made mistakes. The first reflection of this programming came when I was in the fourth grade and couldn’t hit a baseball with a baseball bat when I threw the ball into the air. So I threw the bat through the bathroom window. Throughout my life when I made mistakes like sawing a line crookedly, or bending a nail that I was driving into wood, was to break whatever tool I was using.

This process continued until I was 68 years old. On the evening of August 3, 2015, I was working on my computer just before going to bed. The power cord came out of the computer three times. The third time I got angry and whacked the back of the monitor with the power cord and broke the monitor. As I crawled into bed I was feeling very depressed and thought to myself, “What if I could accept myself right now, as I am in the pit of despair, after breaking another valuable tool?” Immediately my heart started beating rapidly, and my eyes were filled with tears. Finally, I knew that I had accepted myself, and from then on I had no anger at myself when I made mistakes, and loving other people seemed ever so much easier. It really is true that in order to really love others, you must first love yourself. And some of these kinds of lessons may take most of your life to learn.

So now, if we can digest this mind-expanding concept that we really are everything that there is in the universe, that we are truly the Creator, then we must also be perfect in our seeming imperfections. And so is everyone else. We all are the one Creator living a multitude of lives to help the Creator know Itself better, with more purity and variety. Q’uo gives some sound advice on how we may do that:

If the self cannot, or struggles, to connect with the other-selves around it due to previous incarnational experience, then it is also not fully loving the self. The purest expression of the self is that of love, is that of an open heart, first and foremost, to the self, for the self.

So, my dear seeker, these difficulties in relating in group situations or to other selves, these fears of rejection and perhaps being alone, and these actions that attempt to manipulate or control, are not aspects to shame yourself for. Judgment of self does not leave a clear path to love. No, instead, forgiving the self, being gentle with the self, treating the self like the pure and beautiful reflection of the Creator, that is the way to experiencing all that you wish to experience, to finding that comfort, to finding that peace, be that in the self and also with other selves. Q’uo, March 9, 2022

This morning I took Boscoe to the vet to get his blood sugars tested and his claws trimmed. The test results should be back by tomorrow afternoon. He has gained a full pound since last August, and that is good news.

This afternoon I went around the yard and picked up small tree limbs that were blown down in recent rain and wind. While I was walking behind my car, which was parked in the garage, I noticed that its tail lights and head lights were on, and I couldn’t get them to go off. I called the service department of Bachman Subaru and left them a message as to what I should do, and when they called back they let me know that there was a little switch just behind the steering wheel that I must have switched on when I dusted the dash board this morning. I love simple solutions!

The Eyes, Ears And Heart

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

You have heard many times of eyes which cannot see and of ears which do not hear. The principle of the love of Jesus the Christ moves in spirit where it is called to open the eyes, open the ears, and unstop the heart. For the world seen without the spirit of love is a world of illusion and shadow.

With all of your heart, pray that the spirit may come upon you this day, that you may gaze at the beggar and see Christ; that you may gaze at the woman in rags and see a woman in fair, clean cloth; that you may gaze at the starving child and see the most gentle and worthy of beings; that you may gaze upon your landscapes which have been so torn by war and see the peace that will swallow such degradation with love; and that you may have the eyes of Christ and the ears of Christ.

Pray and open your heart to the spirit of love. We are the way out of illusion.

We leave you in that peace that the world of illusion can never know, now and forever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 103 quote today comes from Chapter Two and the section on love includes loving yourself:

Carla’s goals for this chapter: I discuss wellness as one of the things we do to tune ourselves for work in consciousness. I open up the question of what wellness is and talk about mind, body and spirit as aspects of physical wellness.

Chapter Two:

Love includes loving yourself

You need to fall in love with yourselves as wonderful and foolish and silly and evil-minded and mean and every other quality that you know of. And you need to bring all of those dark and light qualities into your heart, not to judge, but to love. For as you come to know yourself more and more, you will find the truth running deep and true under the folly of personality and opinion and that truth is that you carry the Creator’s consciousness within you and by using your will and setting your intention you may be a place where light dwells and oh, what a saving grace it is to others when they see you shine, unconcerned that you are imperfect, knowing that whatever you are, you are the Creator. Q’uo, November 2, 2010

As Q’uo suggested, our spiritual journeys are a process of many lifetimes in which we come to know more and more aspects of who we are. We are like a faceted jewel that allows the light of the Creator to shine through us and reveal the many light and dark qualities that make us a 360-degree being. As we use the balancing process to continue to see and accept these universal qualities we come to know and accept ourselves for each of an infinite set of polar opposite roles that we play upon the stage of life. However, before our conscious spiritual journeys began we attempted to choose only what we called positive qualities to reflect in our behaviors because that is what we were taught to do as children on the flat game board of life. From that point of view we cannot see beyond the veil to discover that there is so much more to our lives than trying to be “good” and “successful” and “happy” and “acceptable”. However, as we began to become conscious seekers of truth it became apparent to us that the rest of our family and friends who were also trying to be good, happy, successful, and acceptable didn’t really seem to be fulfilled with this attempt. Something was missing, and even though little comment was ever made about this inner dissatisfaction there was still this feeling that would surface from time to time indicating that all was not well. Oxal spoke to this point when they said:

When you find your self dissatisfied, know that the source is your self. Without condemning the self, clear the mind, step away from the illusion of time and limitations, and do your work, not to seek satisfaction but to understand the stimulus, asking yourself the question: What do you seek? Patiently, humbly, quietly, dwell in this question, accepting your dissatisfaction. The combination you will find most fruitful. As always, we of Oxal join our brothers in recommending that this and all spiritual exercises be accompanied by meditation. Oxal, April 26, 1981.

But as we become Players on the Enhanced Game Board of life we discover that the Creator in all of its power and variety lives within us and is, indeed, the very fabric of our being. And the Creator is all things: the villain, the hero, the servant, the master, the lover, the deceiver, the builder, the destroyer, the critic, the comforter and so on and on and on infinitely. There is no quality that can be named that we are not as Q’uo alluded to here:

The idea of forgiving the self is not to find a strand here and a strand there and a strand in the third place of perceived unforgiven self and pluck those out. It is to embrace such perceived moments with the hope of opening the self to the unity of that imperfection with the perfection it balances, so that you may see that you are not a “good” being and attempting to destroy the “bad” being that may exist beneath the floor of the “good” being. Rather, you are attempting to become a full, circular and robust self that knows its shadow side, knows its virtues and knows that neither is the true tale of the self but only the process that is occurring to allow the self to move ever deeper into that self, that interior road to the center of self that lightens as it goes until, in the very center of self, in the heart of self, in the tabernacle of the Creator within the self, there is a stunning, flooding white light that melts every consideration and allows one to rest in adoration and faith. Q’uo, September 17, 2003.

This afternoon I had two technicians from New Circle Mechanical come out and begin the process of redoing my system of draining water to keep it out of the basement by preparing to install a much larger sump pump that can easily do the job. There will also be the need to install larger pipes to connect this larger sump pump to my drain that is about 50 feet from the house. Having two more water in the basement episodes this year was the reason for this decision.

The Holy Ground Of Consciousness

I am the principle of Jesus the Christ which speaks to the world today. I am all those things that you think that I am, but most of all I am your own inner voice; your own inner comfort; your own inner peace.

Let us contemplate the holy ground of your consciousness.

Because of the troubles of daily life, the surface consciousness is littered with debris. The undercurrent of mind is littered with unspoken thoughts, unnamed fears, and unrecognized emotion.

Insofar as you may be able this day, return again and again, momentarily, to the holy ground upon which your consciousness, the very essence of your being, stands. It is no passing thing. It is, indeed, the representation of all that there is in creation.

Within you, abidingly and faithfully, that principle of love which is the Creator is your essence and constitutes the bedrock upon which you, as a timeless being, shall stand for eternity.

Return again and again to the peace, the strength, the power, the wisdom, and the love of love Itself. And from that spot within you comes a balance that shines in your vision and heals in the world outside of your eyes and inside your heart.

We leave you, healed, in the peace and love that abides within, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter One and the concept of psychic self-defense:

Psychic self-defense

Another form of communication which the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life may experience is one of what could be called of a negative nature, at least in its source of origination.

We suggest that there can be no psychic greeting component without your free will choice in an area which lies within your course of study, shall we say. There may be no obstacles placed in your path by those who are of the loyal opposition, as we have described it, but those entities may magnify those experiences which you utilize, though we must at this time suggest that this phenomenon is far more unusual than most entities would imagine, for most of the entities within your illusion find themselves moving between the choice of service to others and service to self, and have not moved far enough in either directions to attract the attention of those who would choose to manipulate that movement. Q’uo, April 30, 1989

Psychic greetings, or psychic attacks, are not likely to happen to most conscious seekers of truth until they have polarized strongly in service to others and are offering information and inspiration that can help others to create similar changes in their consciousness. The closer that Players stand to the light and love of the one Creator the more likely they are to attract the attention of negatively-oriented entities who would like to take the power of that light for themselves, or failing that, to put the light out as Ra suggested in 80.6, regarding our friend of negative polarity who was our constant companion and the source of many psychic greetings:

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

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

Paradoxically, the best psychic self-defense is not to defend against such attacks, not to fight back in any way whatsoever. Fighting back is the way of negativity and will actually prolong the psychic attack. This is because negative entities are adept at fighting, and positive entities lose polarity by seeing a separation between themselves and the negative entities that justifies fighting back. In truth, we are all one being, the one Creator. Jesus said, “Resist not evil.” And Ra elaborated on this technique of psychic self-defense:

Questioner: Each of us gets the signals and dreams. I have been aware of clairaudient communication at least once in waking up. Can you suggest a method whereby we might, shall I say, nullify the effect of the influence that we don’t want from a negative source?

Ra: I am Ra. There are various methods. We shall offer the most available or simple. To share the difficult contact with the other-selves associated with this working and to meditate in love for these senders of images and light for self and other-selves is the most available means of nullifying the effects of such occurrences. To downgrade these experiences by the use of intellect or the disciplines of will is to invite the prolonging of the effects. Far better, then, to share in trust such experiences and join hearts and souls in love and light with compassion for the sender and armor for the self. Ra, 44.10

Then Q’uo was able to give a larger perspective as to how psychic greetings or attacks are experienced:

The question that you ask this day concerning what psychic greeting is is a query that is, in a way, quite difficult to answer because the parameters of psychic greetings are, as several in the group have noted, subjective and varied. The essence of a psychic greeting is the intentionality of the greeter. Thusly, not all experienced resistance or experienced catalyst is of a psychic greeting nature. For the term to be properly used, the greeting needs to be one that is coming from a presence, whether it is an individual or a group entity. Further, this greeting has as its focus an encroachment into the energetic body rather than the physical body, in terms of its origin. So, one way of looking at psychic greeting would be a somewhat narrow and carefully delineated way in which psychic greetings are only those greetings which have been sent by an entity, most usually of the inner planes, with the intention of disrupting the process of spiritual evolution and causing an entity to stop its forward progress and to become lost in the side roads of inner questioning and suffering. Q’uo, December 12, 2004.

So in the forty years since the Ra contact the best way that I have found to deal with psychic greetings is in meditation. In that state I visualize the nature of the attack and see how some thought or deed of my own, that was inharmonious, was intensified by a negative being. Then I see this being as my brother or sister, in truth, and send them heartfelt love and light. I send that same love and light to the manifestation of the greeting. Then I send love and light to myself and surround myself in an armor of love and light. As Ra said, Love is the great protector. (63.5)

Today is the 42nd anniversary of the beginning of the Ra contact. It almost feels like it was another incarnation ago, but I look back at that time with great appreciation for having been able to be part of the group that brought through those of Ra through to share their philosophy of the Law of One with planet Earth. Don, Carla, and I looked at each session of Ra as a means to provide a more effective and inspired spiritual path for anyone who wants to make The Choice of polarity, open the heart in unconditional love, and graduate into the fourth density of love and understanding.

The Perception Of Manyness

I am the spirit of Jesus Christ, the principle of the full consciousness of love in the vibration which comforts this instrument.

In your minds you know that all things come from one source and go to one source. And yet in your hearts you who peer into the gloom of the shadows of the world’s day perceive often that many things come not from one source but from many, and likewise that the fruits of action are scattered to the twelve directions, not moving once again into unity but shattering again and again into the chaos of unintended effect.

Yet we say to you that one of the great and overriding benefits of consciousness with which the consciousness of love has been intermingled is a realization of the incorrectness of the perception of manyness, either of the source or of the final disposition of the energies which move within your notice and awareness.

Seek first to know the consciousness of love when you wish, secondly, to know the nature of those things which occur to you which are played out in front of you and which depart from you. Only in that transformed consciousness shall your eyes see truly and your heart resound with the unity of love.

Peace be with you, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, 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.

2023-01-14

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the quote from 103 comes from Chapter One and the section on how to listen:

How to listen

Communication is the word that describes the goal of coming into union with another person through the use of words. In such a sharing of our thoughts and feelings with another person we are seeking to give and receive helpful information about ourselves and an other self. In order for such communication to work there needs to be an alternation of speaking and listening. I am of the opinion that the more difficult half of this coming into union is the listening. The talking is the easy part. More often than not a person is more interested in being heard than in hearing. This usually manifests in the one listening not really listening when the other person is talking as much as they are fashioning a response to what the other person is saying as they are saying it. In a hustle and bustle world this is often utilized as the quickest means of getting the conversation completed so that one more item on the to-do list can be checked off as the next one is undertaken. Actually taking the time to let the spoken words sink in before responding might even be considered a little weird in our fast-paced modern world. Carla had some perceptive insights into the art of listening:

What comes through in correspondence or talking may or may not be a linear, straight-forward thing with a shallow bottom and clear meaning. Far more likely is a multi-layered piece of communication in which some questions and issues may be expressed while others remain unspoken and perhaps even unknown to the speaker. This is also the nature of the listening self, and each and every distortion and insecurity can baffle clear listening. How we hear people begins in a welter of our own unadmitted biases and progresses through patience, persistence and sheer learning experience and the ensuing humility. Carla L. Rueckert, A Wanderer’s Handbook, pg. 450

This very mindful process of engaging in communication with the emphasis on listening, as the avenue to greater clarity in communication, elevates a conversation to a spiritual practice. That is certainly antithetical to the practical demands of our modern culture, but I believe that it is possible that in our most important one-on-one communications it would be well worth the effort to utilize the listening ear more in order to enhance our coming into union with our much-valued other selves. Once again I would like share a beautiful quote from Carla on the value of listening:

The spiritually oriented listener, then, is listening in eternity, with the consciousness of the widest viewpoint, which is infinity, and yet she is also focusing on this one soul, this one thought process, this one area of concern and learning. It is a practice to delight the heart that yearns always to be better, to serve in a higher way, to become more pure, to honor the divinity in people more deeply. It is a nurturing method that is intangible, yet most keenly felt by the speaker. There is nothing like the feeling of finally being fully heard, or even heard at all. As with the exercise of all gifts, the listener becomes the learner of much. Beyond any understanding of the problems heard about, there is the process of resting more and more in the wordless clarity of silence to bring our minds and hearts to a more profound awareness of the self as a spiritual being. This is the greatest gift of silence: it gives us ourselves as it gives the speaker himself. Carla L. Rueckert, A Wanderer’s Handbook, pg. 452

In this quote Q’uo gives us the thought that our listening to others might be more spiritually advanced as a means of enhancing communication rather than attempting to be heard.

Earlier conversation before this channeled communication talked about the way people do not listen to each other but rather each have things they wish to say to the other, and this is, of course, a very prominent way in which clear communication is sabotaged. If you become aware of a situation in which your words are not being heard, then it is that you may ask yourself whether you wish to be heard or whether you wish to allow the other self to express that which that self wishes to express and assume a role of simply listening. In many instances the appropriate response we would say, metaphysically speaking, is simply to abandon the desire to be heard and become a sounding board that can hear what an other self is attempting to say. This yielding up of the inner agenda and the thing to say is a mark of spiritual maturity. It is an action very difficult to complete, for there is within each self a deep well of desire to be heard, to be heard by the self, and to be heard by those other selves which have meaning for the self. And yet many times the straightest and shortest distance to clear communication is to become silent, to release the desire to be heard and to accept, temporarily, a role of purely listening. Q’uo, December 5, 1999.

This morning I spent most of my time getting the house ready for our pubic channeling session that will begin at 1 pm this afternoon. I got all of the chairs set up in the living room for 15 people, and I got chairs five chairs ready in my bedroom where our channels will tune before beginning to channel. I also threw out all of the trash bags of kitty litter and uneaten food so their odors would not be present. Then I took a speed walk, got a bath, posted this Camelot Journal entry early, and had lunch.

Sleep’s Communion With Spirit

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

Once more the day’s star shines and the activities of a busy round begin. And each soul, vertical, dressed, equipped for the day, moves into the rhythms of that vertical activity which is called living the life.

May we suggest that it is most helpful to realize that that which has been yours during your sleep, during your period of horizontal relaxation, is most valuable. For upon your bed you do not strive. You do not struggle. You do not mourn or praise. But as one who dives into deep water, you are covered with the blessings which sleep brings. For sleep opens the door to the spirit’s communion with that spirit which we are.

Allow the vertical part of your life to carry the horizontal member which lies within the heart and mind. Allow the consciousness of peace and comfort to interpenetrate each activity. For those peaceful lessons learned upon the nightly bed may so inform the day that your life finds more and more value in its happenings.

You see, your life is only yours insofar as you perceive it, and it is your powers of perception that are clarified and strengthened by obtaining the peaceful spaciousness of water whilst bounding actively upon the currents of the air.

Might this combination of action and rest offer you enhanced realization of peace, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the quote from 103 comes from Chapter One and the section on how to listen:

How to listen

Communication is the word that describes the goal of coming into union with another person through the use of words. In such a sharing of our thoughts and feelings with another person we are seeking to give and receive helpful information about ourselves and an other self. In order for such communication to work there needs to be an alternation of speaking and listening. I am of the opinion that the more difficult half of this coming into union is the listening. The talking is the easy part. More often than not a person is more interested in being heard than in hearing. This usually manifests in the one listening not really listening when the other person is talking as much as they are fashioning a response to what the other person is saying as they are saying it. In a hustle and bustle world this is often utilized as the quickest means of getting the conversation completed so that one more item on the to-do list can be checked off as the next one is undertaken. Actually taking the time to let the spoken words sink in before responding might even be considered a little weird in our fast-paced modern world. Carla had some perceptive insights into the art of listening:

What comes through in correspondence or talking may or may not be a linear, straight-forward thing with a shallow bottom and clear meaning. Far more likely is a multi-layered piece of communication in which some questions and issues may be expressed while others remain unspoken and perhaps even unknown to the speaker. This is also the nature of the listening self, and each and every distortion and insecurity can baffle clear listening. How we hear people begins in a welter of our own unadmitted biases and progresses through patience, persistence and sheer learning experience and the ensuing humility. Carla L. Rueckert, A Wanderer’s Handbook, pg. 450

This very mindful process of engaging in communication with the emphasis on listening, as the avenue to greater clarity in communication, elevates a conversation to a spiritual practice. That is certainly antithetical to the practical demands of our modern culture, but I believe that it is possible that in our most important one-on-one communications it would be well worth the effort to utilize the listening ear more in order to enhance our coming into union with our much-valued other selves. Once again I would like share a beautiful quote from Carla on the value of listening:

The spiritually oriented listener, then, is listening in eternity, with the consciousness of the widest viewpoint, which is infinity, and yet she is also focusing on this one soul, this one thought process, this one area of concern and learning. It is a practice to delight the heart that yearns always to be better, to serve in a higher way, to become more pure, to honor the divinity in people more deeply. It is a nurturing method that is intangible, yet most keenly felt by the speaker. There is nothing like the feeling of finally being fully heard, or even heard at all. As with the exercise of all gifts, the listener becomes the learner of much. Beyond any understanding of the problems heard about, there is the process of resting more and more in the wordless clarity of silence to bring our minds and hearts to a more profound awareness of the self as a spiritual being. This is the greatest gift of silence: it gives us ourselves as it gives the speaker himself. Carla L. Rueckert, A Wanderer’s Handbook, pg. 452

In this quote Q’uo gives us the thought that our listening to others might be more spiritually advanced as a means of enhancing communication rather than attempting to be heard.

Earlier conversation before this channeled communication talked about the way people do not listen to each other but rather each have things they wish to say to the other, and this is, of course, a very prominent way in which clear communication is sabotaged. If you become aware of a situation in which your words are not being heard, then it is that you may ask yourself whether you wish to be heard or whether you wish to allow the other self to express that which that self wishes to express and assume a role of simply listening. In many instances the appropriate response we would say, metaphysically speaking, is simply to abandon the desire to be heard and become a sounding board that can hear what an other self is attempting to say. This yielding up of the inner agenda and the thing to say is a mark of spiritual maturity. It is an action very difficult to complete, for there is within each self a deep well of desire to be heard, to be heard by the self, and to be heard by those other selves which have meaning for the self. And yet many times the straightest and shortest distance to clear communication is to become silent, to release the desire to be heard and to accept, temporarily, a role of purely listening. Q’uo, December 5, 1999.

Today I went to see Bethany at Absolutely Nails to get my hair cut. Carla introduced me to Bethany years ago as she also cut Carla’s hair and did her nails and was happy to cut my hair too. It had been a while since I had seen her as I only get a couple inches of my hair cut off every three or so months, so we had a chance to catch up on what had been happening in our lives while she was cutting my hair. When I got back home I took my speed walk and then vacuumed the first floor of the house.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the quote from 103 comes from Chapter One and the section on the radio station analogy:

Radio Station analogy—we broadcast with more or less clarity according to our balanced energy centers

 So, the first thing that you communicate as an entity is your vibration, and from it people will take much. They will form an attitude towards you dependent upon how that vibration that is they and that vibration that is you are harmonizing. Neither you nor they may be aware that this subtle bodywork is going on, but bodies themselves are aware of these vibrational characteristics, and perhaps you have had the experience of cottoning to someone and not particularly liking someone else from the very instant of meeting. Often the communication of vibration has done its work before a word is spoken. Q’uo, December 5, 1999

The work that we do to crystalize our energy centers causes each of us to vibrate within a certain frequency that is unique to us. We become more authentic beings as we become more of who we really wish to be and how we are able to reflect our service-to-others polarization choices. We also are able to perceive how other people vibrate in accordance with their own level of balance within their energy centers. Sometimes we are aware of this vibration of another person’s nature simply by being in their presence as Q’uo mentioned.

However, no matter what feelings we may have about another person, it is important to remember that we are all one. We are all part of each other and part of the one infinite Creator as well. We all work together as pieces of the puzzle of life, and we can help each other make sense of this third-density illusion. If we can love each other as we love ourselves—and loving ourselves is critical in this case—we can form a bond as Players on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life and help each other find answers to those questions that are most important to us as Q’uo described in this quote:

Do any of you who think you came to this planet and entered into its illusion to be untouched by it? Spend time each day to fall in love with yourself and you are a child of God. The Creator loves you with a love so passionate no words could express it. The Creator loves just precisely who and what you are and the Creator sends to each person who is blind His companions along the way, who reach out the hand of the Creator to you and call out, “I love you.” These are the words of the Creator. That is why we ask each of you to love each other because each of you need someone’s help in loving yourself.

Oh, how we wish we could emphasize to you greatly enough the enormous difference you can make in your life experience to truly love the self as the self is, with its biases towards excellence and biases towards what the self perceives as faults. Does not each entity have many faults? As you forgive your comrades along the way realize that you are forgiven yourself and each time to sit in meditation spend a moment within the deepest part of yourself to say to yourself, “I love you with my whole heart,” the love, the thought which is the lesson of this density. Q’uo, July 8, 1990.

We all have gifts that can help us and others on this journey of seeking the truth and the freedom that comes from finding it together. This is the basic work in consciousness that is the foundation upon which our potential social memory complex of planet Earth can be created as Q’uo suggested in this quote:

The enjoyment of [the] light of fourth density is dependent upon being able to move into a state of consciousness in which all other selves are seen as the self and all crimes and achievements are seen as a portion of the universal self and to move that 180 degrees [until] the self is seen as all things and as the Creator. That unification of consciousness opens the self to loving and being loved in a way that the body loves itself rather than the way entities who are separate units love each other.

Each is unique. We do not presume a high mentality, but rather we suggest that, at the subconscious level, all entities within creation are already one, and therefore the process of moving from third to fourth density in part consists of accepting the oneness at a level which has moved into the belief and perception system of the entity. This biases the conscious entity towards retaining the attitude of unconditional love and outgoing radiance of being at times when there is a perceived threat. The one known as St. Francis of Assisi is said to have called the fire, Sister Fire and the pain, Brother Pain, seeing that all things and qualities are a portion of one infinite creation. Q’uo, November 27, 2002.

This morning Raul’s Lawn Service came by and blew the leaves out of my roof gutters and then blew them over into the driveway where they had blown the leaves from the pet cemetery and pond area into a large pile. Then they used their monster vacuum hose to suck up all of the leaves and deposit them into the back of a large truck. I have been waiting for quite a while to get this job done, and I am grateful to get it done before the next round of rain comes in tomorrow.

This afternoon I went around the house with the garden hose to spray off the dirt that collected on the bottom of the eves when the leaves were blown out of the gutters this morning. Then I went around the back of the house to blow some of those leaves into piles to put them in garbage cans since Raul’s guys forgot to pick them up. I put the garbage cans of leaves out for yard waste pickup tomorrow morning.

A Call To Action

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

This instrument asks me, “Am I ready? Am I tuned?” and we say, “No, my child. You are not ready, but you shall begin.”

And this is our call to those who live and hope to be pure, a call to action in knowledge that those who live are never ready. Those who are finally ready have no more acting to do.

Therefore, my children, be at peace with the actions which you undertake this day, seeking always to know the mind of Christ and to dwell in realms of peace.

And then so act that you may continue to be surrounded in the plenty and the bounty of peace in action. Those who are tranquil in activity are not necessarily wiser, yet they surely may act with more clarity. May you find that clarity. May you be, in action, at peace.

In this peace we leave you, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter One and the concept of consciousness, from the previous section, and: its crystalline nature—as we balance our energy centers:

Its crystalline nature—as we balance our energy centers

The energy body of each of you is of a crystalline nature. It is sensitive in the extreme and it is easily moved by the light which has been configured through other crystals. As the energy body is developed through the course of an incarnation, where the energy body is strong it forms sometimes quite complex crystals that are of surpassing beauty. Q’uo, February 28, 2009

As we use the balancing exercises to process catalyst at each level of our energy body, or system of chakras, we activate these chakras and cause them to vibrate more and more rapidly. At some point in the utilization of the balancing exercises our consciousness begins to cause not only greater vibrational activity in the lower three chakras, but the green through violet-ray chakras can become crystalized, and then they are more efficient in allowing the love/light, or intelligent energy, of the Logos to pass through them as a crystalized chakra magnifies these energies as Ra mentioned in this quote:

The uncrystallized, lower centers cannot deliver the higher voltage. The crystallized centers may become quite remarkable in the high voltage characteristics of the energy transfer as it reaches green ray. And indeed, as green ray is crystallized, this also applies to the higher energy centers until such energy transfers become an honestation for the Creator. (84.11)

Ra elaborated on this process in 47.7:

Questioner: Can you define what you mean by a “crystallized entity”?

Ra: I am Ra. We have used this particular term because it has a fairly precise meaning in your language. When a crystalline structure is formed of your physical material the elements present in each molecule are bonded in a regularized fashion with the elements in each other molecule. Thus the structure is regular and, when fully and perfectly crystallized, has certain properties. It will not splinter or break; it is very strong without effort; and it is radiant, traducing light into a beautiful refraction giving pleasure of the eye to many.

Here Q’uo describes the crystalline nature of our energy body through which we can potentially contact intelligent infinity:

Firstly, the nature of the energy that is used to open the gateway of intelligent infinity consists of three basic components: the will of the seeker; the infinite love/light of the infinite Creator which, moving from the Logos to the heart, is then reflected up through the Earth into the soles of the feet and into the energy body in an infinite supply. And thirdly, there is that vast array of sources of aid and guidance that can be accessed for those who move through the gateway into intelligent infinity.

In the normal course of seeking, the work of the seeker is first to clear his chakras so that the energy from the Earth may flow in infinite supply into the opened heart and then springboard up through the higher chakras through the gateway of intelligent infinity and then, aimed with the clear and lucid intent of the seeker, attract the appropriate source of guidance.

The energy body is crystalline and delicate. Consequently, the energy of the infinite Creator that comes up from the Earth is geared to harmonize with the needs of the energy body. If this love/light encounters a hindrance, it does not push or press but merely awaits the clearing of whatever energy center or centers have been blocked or over-activated. Q’uo, May 27, 2008

This morning I received a second email from the woman who is channeling love energy to others for healing purposes. She has had some difficulties arise in recent sessions and has stopped having them until she can figure out how to deal with the problems, one of which may be what we came to call psychic attacks or psychic greetings from negative entities. She read my first email and has begun to use some of the suggestions that I made, and in this second email she asked a couple more questions for clarification as to how we dealt with psychic attacks during the Ra contact.

Behind Every Thought

I am the spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ in the vibration of the consciousness of love which is balanced fullness to this entity. We greet each in the full measure of love which is the Father’s birthright to His children and the nature of the universe.

In measured steps did the Creator move upon the waters of your consciousness to create a consciousness of peace, an awareness of light, and a sensibility to detect and discern the creatures and ministers of light. Behind every thought and every concept waiting behind the closed door of emotion, there waits the spirit of a lively and all-consuming love, a spirit which engenders peace and joy. In no way can we sell at reduced rates the precious gift which has no price but must exact from each recipient a small awareness in welcoming.

The emotions of darkness are like a cloud around the spirit of those who cannot find enough faith to ask that love’s consciousness be a gift in the darkness. Yet we pray and wait for the opportunity to shine like a beacon upon the inward thoughts of those who do seek peace. Though there is great mystery to the consciousness of love, yet the mystery lies not in the mechanics of connection with it.

My peace I leave 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.

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

Consciousness

The cosmic consciousness of the One Infinite Creator could be described by the words Love or Logos. In more practical terms these concepts are beings that can be seen as stars in the night sky. These are the beings which created the galaxies and planets, the variety of life forms in each density in this octave of creation, and every thing that exists. In 29.32, Ra gave a basic description of the nature of each Logos:

Questioner: I guess what we’d better get to then, now that we have traced the path of creation at least down to the crystalline structure, we’d better concentrate on the evolution of thought and its seeking path to intelligent infinity. We have created, in the major galaxy of the Logos, a very large number of planets. As these planets develop, is it possible for you to give me an example of various planetary developments in what I would call a metaphysical sense having to do with the development of consciousness and its polarities throughout the galaxy? In other words I believe that some of these planets develop quite rapidly into higher density planets and some take longer times. Can you give me some idea of that development?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the final full query of this session.


The particular Logos of your major galaxy has used a large portion of Its coalesced material to reflect the beingness of the Creator. In this way there is much of your galactic system which does not have the progression of which you speak but dwells spiritually as a portion of the Logos. Of those entities upon which consciousness dwells there is, as you surmise, a variety of time/space periods during which the higher densities of experience are attained by consciousness.

This whole process occurs because the Creator focused Its free will to know Itself through these various Loves or Logoi to create the photon, or Light. As the photons of Light vibrate at various speeds and angles of rotation, what we see as matter is created. So, our universe is made out of love/light or light/love, and our individual consciousness is directly connected to this whole process. In 27.15-.16, Don and Ra describe this process of creation:

Questioner: Then I will expand a bit more on this concept. We have the infinite vibration of Love which can occur, I am assuming, at varying frequencies, if this has a meaning in this; I would assume that it begins at one basic frequency. Does this have any meaning? Am I making sense? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. Each Love, as you term the prime movers, comes from one frequency, if you wish to use this term. This frequency is unity. We would perhaps liken it rather to a strength than a frequency, this strength being infinite, the finite qualities being chosen by the particular nature of this primal movement.

Questioner: Then this vibration which is, for lack of better understanding, which we would call pure motion; it is pure love; it is— it is not— there is nothing that is yet condensed, shall we say, to form any type or density of illusion. This Love then creates by this process of vibration a photon, as we call it, which is the basic particle of light. This photon then, by added vibrations and rotations, further condenses into particles of the densities, the various densities that we experience. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Each Logos refines the nature of the cosmic mind in a way unique to It and offers what is called the archetypical mind. The archetypical mind gives us a blueprint that describes the nature of our evolution in mind, body, and spirit. Each archetypical mind that is created also gives the One Creator more ways to know Itself. Ra developed the Major Arcana of the tarot as a means of categorizing various elements of our minds, bodies, and spirits to give us general guidelines for ways to view our own unique evolutionary process. In 90.14, Ra defined the archetypical mind thusly:

The archetypical mind is part of that mind which informs all experience. Please recall the definition of the archetypical mind as the repository of those refinements to the cosmic or all-mind made by this particular Logos and peculiar only to this Logos. Thus it may be seen as one of the roots of mind, not the deepest but certainly the most informative in some ways.

The next level of consciousness that is created by the Logos is the planetary mind. This is the mind of the population of any planet of whatever density from the fourth through the seventh. If a planet has a variety of races living upon it, as does our Earth, then there is also a racial mind that has its own particular flavor of experience and beingness that adds to the planetary mind. Both the planetary and racial minds are products of the accumulated memories or experiences of the entities which comprise them. Each of us adds our own experiences to both of these minds. In 91.7, Don and Ra discussed the planetary mind and the racial mind:

Questioner: Now, some entities on this planet evolved through second density into third and some were transferred from other planets to re-cycle in third density here. Did the ones who were transferred here to re-cycle in third density add to the planetary or racial mind?

Ra: I am Ra. Not only did each race add to the planetary mind but also each race possesses a racial mind. Thus we made this distinction in discussing this portion of mind. This portion of mind is formed in the series of seemingly non-simultaneous experiences which are chosen in freedom of will by the mind/body/spirit complexes of the planetary influence. Therefore, although this Akashic, planetary, or racial mind is indeed a root of mind it may be seen in sharp differentiation from the deeper roots of mind which are not a function of altering memory, if you will.

The next levels of mind to be considered are the unconscious and conscious mind of each entity within either a planetary or racial mind. Each individual entity will have both an unconscious and a conscious mind because of the presence of the veil of forgetting which separates the two. In the following quote Q’uo describes how the conscious and subconscious minds may be used to get helpful spiritual information in working with dreams:

It is well, if one wishes to work with the dreams, that one indeed prepare the self to do so. For in working with the dreams, one is working with the deeper portion of one’s own conscious and subconscious mind. At this level of awareness there is a perception of experience as a whole. There is the unification of that which seems broken to the conscious mind that resides within the deeper portions of the mind. And as you are able to work with this portion of your own mind, you develop a pattern or relationship which can be built upon, expanded and relied upon in all future endeavors. It is well therefore to, shall we say, convince the subconscious mind that you do indeed wish to seek that treasure which it has to offer. This may be accomplished by simple things that are repeated; that is, [make] the suggestion to the conscious mind, to yourself, as it would seem, that as you retire for the night and enter that state called sleep, you wish to remember those dreams which follow and that you have indeed prepared yourself to work with these dreams by placing, next to your sleeping position, the necessary writing utensil and paper or pad upon which you may record the dream upon waking. Q’uo, May 18, 2003.

There is a third type of mind that connects the conscious and unconscious minds, and that is what is called the intuition. The intuition is a means of communication utilized by the unconscious mind to give hints and clues to the conscious mind regarding the more appropriate thoughts or actions that the conscious seeker may take to aid its evolutionary process and its service to others choices. Here Q’uo talks about how the intuition can connect the conscious and unconscious minds:

The continued seeking by the conscious self creates an opening in what you have called the veil which separates the conscious from the unconscious mind, and through this opening, then, the symbols and images and messages from the unconscious are made available to the seeker in the form of dreams, and also in the form of what you may call the intuition or flashes of intuition and inspiration which occasionally lighten and brighten the conscious experience. Q’uo, May 22, 1983.

Thusly are all of these levels of mind, from the cosmic consciousness of the Creator to the conscious mind of each of us, a means of providing more information to the seeker of truth. As one ascends in the contact with the higher levels of mind, or consciousness, the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of Life is able to achieve a larger and larger perspective from which to experience the unitive nature of the Creator, the creation, and the self.

This morning I began my errand run at First Watch once again where I enjoyed a brunch of a Belgian waffle. Then I stopped at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself. My next stop was at Walgreen’s Drug Store where I bought some ice cream and Kleenexes. Then I was off to the vet to buy some meds for Boscoe and Mr. Mush. My last stop was a Concept Cleaners where I bought bags for my vacuum cleaner.

The Heart Of What You Learn

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

Much is not known to you. And because your minds ceaselessly seek knowledge, your ignorance is a burden. And you are concerned with learning more, gaining information and so controlling your environment.

The forces of love are not inimicable to the forces of mind. Rather, the voice of the spirit is that which, through and beneath all written and intellectual learnings, brings the heart of what you learn to the center of your own mind, thus ordering in a helpful and compassionate way that data which your mind would otherwise make into a maze into which it wanders, confused and uncertain.

By all means, seek that information which humankind has collected. But seek also that great judge and orderer of what is, for you and you alone, the creative and shaping force of the spirit of love. Thus peace and right knowledge shall be yours and your path shall be made clear. Trust your world, remembering to keep it in the hands of the spirit of Jesus the Christ.

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

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density.

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 103 quote comes from Chapter One and the section on tuning:

Tuning

If there is not a steady practice of meditation of one kind or another there is a far less firm place where the observer-self may look upon the challenges of a busy life and see through them to the peace and the power that lie within faith, that faith that all is well. That simple statement, “All is well,” is a good mantra for any discipline, for it is at the heart of faith. Q’uo, March 28, 2009

Since Carla started channeling in 1974, it was obvious to her that anyone serving as an instrument, or channel, needed to prepare herself for this service by raising her spiritual awareness and vibrations to a high enough level that she could make the best possible effort in channeling. So can each of us use meditation to help us to tune ourselves into a more conscious spiritual awareness with which we may meet the day and all the people and activities that it will contain. Q’uo called this spiritual awareness faith, not faith in any particular thing, but faith that “all is well,” and that all will be well as Q’uo stated in this quote:

The trust of which you speak in relation to faith is not only in one’s feelings but the feeling that despite that which one sees and experiences that one knows that all is well, that one knows that all will be well, that what is occurring at any moment is appropriate and may be learned from in an effective manner which enhances the evolutionary journey. Each entity along this journey will have those times of doubt, of trial, of confusion, of feeling lost, of feeling alone. All of these and many more experiences are those which test one’s character, which offer one kind of lesson or another. There are as many kinds of learning as there are entities to learn. However, in each experience and for each entity, if one can uncover that feeling of faith within and let it be the north star, the Polaris of the self, then one may move without fear and accept whatever is the daily round of activities as they come to one. For an entity that is filled with faith, there is no challenge too great. For any entity without faith, all challenges feel too great. Faith is that which one develops by wishing to develop faith. If one feels faith is lacking in the life pattern, begin to investigate the qualities of faith, the nature of faith, and begin to act as though you have faith, and faith will come to you. Moreover, faith will come through you, for faith is like love. It is a basic quality of this and all creations. If one can begin to exercise the quality of faith it is much like your physical muscle. It will grow in strength and ability. Q’uo, September 10, 2000.

Meditation, at its very heart, is a listening to the Creator within us that communicates this “all is well” message in ways that are too deep for words, that bubble up from the depths of our being and inspire us to share this faith with those we meet in our daily round of activities. Here Q’uo gives a beautiful description of how meditation can tune us to our highest and best self, the Creator within:

We ask you, what is meditation? Do you think of sitting upon a mountain? Do you think of old men in white robes with long beards? That is not a full representation of the wisdom one gains in meditation and the time it takes to get it. But we ask you instead, my friends, to think of meditation as a process, as the trip up that mountain. You are in your street-soiled clothing, and it is warm day and the valley below you has the stench of too much civilization. As you climb, the smog recedes, and the warm, clean air begins to glow about you. A white butterfly dances before you. And you laugh at the sweet smelling air and the butterfly and the fine day that you have found in the high place.

After much climbing, when you are weary, you come to a perfectly smooth lake. It is so pellucid that you can see to the very, very bottom. You remove your clothing, and swim across this lovely, quietly melting lake. And as you walk up the other shore of this tarn, you find that there are new garments waiting for you to pick—garments fresh, sweet smelling as the day, comfortable and pleasant in every way. All that is without you is now cleansed and ready and you walk to the mossy, natural seat that overlooks vast distances. And you settle yourself and you allow all things to flow away, for you have been washed clean and that which is before you is new.

You do not need to ever come out of that meditation. The more you practice the experience of meditation, the more the process will be a portion of you. Then that process itself begins to give you the will to call upon the state of mind in which the kingdom of heaven and the Creator are near, or indeed are all about you. Those things which are full of the stench of complication, semantics and civilization may be seen as from that viewpoint. You may choose that viewpoint any moment. You may behave in the light of your relationship with the Creator, rather than your relationship within an illusion to the Creator, as that portion of the Creator is experiencing itself. Choose. And each time that you do, know that it is your choice and that when we speak to you of meditation, boring though that subject may seem, we wish only to give you the basic tool for renewal of the sense of the original Thought that each of you seeks with such determination. Q’uo, February 13, 1983.

This morning I was able to finish reading the book on the archetypes that was written by a friend of L/L Research. It was a very inspirational experience as many of the concepts that Ra spoke about in relation to each archetype were extended and magnified and increased my previous thoughts in a way that I found most helpful. Needless to say, I had very few suggestions as to how to improve this work, but I did send an email to the author with my praise for his work.

The Holiness Of High Places

I am of Jesus Christ. The full consciousness of love is the principle which wings my being into the nexus of your own. We who are of the principle of Jesus Christ greet you in that consciousness of love which pervades all things.

It has long been in the consciousness of humankind that the high places, the mountains and hills, are holy. Is there superstition and false belief to the holiness of high places? Perhaps some, and yet it is most certainly true that the spirit of the one Lord of all things dwells more purely in less cluttered atmospheres and is more prevalent in the perceptions of those who seek to rise, literally and symbolically, from the miasma of thought pollution which infects any crowded community.

We are able to speak anywhere, under any conditions. Yet the voice of love is often silent. To hear the stillness, it is often most helpful that the distractions of noise from other minds and other hearts which seek after other faces of the Lord be somewhat removed, both literally and, shall we say, psychologically. If you cannot get yourself to a high place within your external world, be absolutely certain that the high places within your own hearts are kept.

We leave you in the peace of holy places and still thoughts, 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.
