Raise your hand if you see Carla as your guru.

Carla has told me several times on the radio show that she didn't want to be anyone's guru. I have always admired this about her. You are right though, that sharing personal details about her life has sort of put her in the spotlight. I don't think that was her intention though. If anything, I think she wants everyone to know that she's just a regular person and to NOT put her on a pedestal!

I wasn't referring to personal details that Carla may have shared. I meant that anyone who becomes a public figure, especially one who is imparting self-help, spiritual, religious etc. material runs the risk of being "followed" rather than just being the instrument by which the information was offered. I don't know why, but humans have a tendency to adulate and give their power over to others. This is a burden on the persons being adulated, which must be accepted as part of the act of being of service in this way.

To Monica:

"How fortunate for leaders that men do not think"—Adolf Hitler


Above quote came to mind after reading your post as a thought on sovereignty of individuals: to think for oneself and discern for ourselves the validity our source of information whether it be from world "leaders," to mass media, to organized religion, to harmonics of our brothers and sisters of Confederation; find within each of us that which rings true in our hearts and carry on from there for truth to one may not apply to another

"We are very honored to have [this opportunity] and wish to express our happiness at being able to share our thoughts with you, but always with the understanding that we are your brothers and are not all-wise or all-knowing but only beings who can make errors. Thus, we attempt to tell you the truth as we understand it but do not ask for your complete [belief] but rather your careful consideration, for yourself are the, shall we say, master (inaudible), the creator of your destiny.."—Latwii summer of 1980
 
It seems your thoughts, Monica, are in congruence with the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the One Infinite Creator
 
I wonder if this is what you meant

Yes, I agree. All of us here are probably of such senior vibrations that all of us planned our incarnations. We also knew that it may be a chance that we would live during times when Ra group would be able to transfer their teachings to our plane, but it was uncertain. I can imagine that Ra group planned to transfer their teachings in the way that they did for quite some time, probably ever since Akhenaton times. We took the risk of incarnating nevertheless. Anyways, they are here, the teachings of the Law of One. Awesome!

I can also imagine that these teachings will, together with other things like Dewey Larson's theories, be part of the future, of fourth density of this planet.

RE: Law of One Religion?
Can it actually be said that all interpretations and views are of equal value?  Is it wrong to say that some interpretations may be closer to the truth and therefore more accurate and beneficial than others?  Ra was pretty quick to point out that certain interpretations were incorrect.  I guess this brings up the whole topic and debate of moral relativism.

After 3 years of interviewing Carla every week, I was always impressed by how humble she was. This is one of the reasons I cringe whenever I see people putting her in that position. By working with her so closely for 3 years, I developed a strong love for her as a person, not just as the channeler of the Law of One. So yes, it does bother me when I see people do the exact opposite of what she wanted. I guess I feel protective of her.

Well Jesus had wars fought in his name so it's not that bad

What risk is there to wandering? I see it as a way of spending some time of our infinite lifespans. Even if you get stuck for many incarnations what difference is there with simply incarnating many times willingly. IMO, one who would not awaken could probably hope to learn more from his incarnation than one who awakens.

Yes, I agree. Many public figures revel in that. It becomes an ego thing for them. Not so for Carla.

...which makes it all the more disturbing when people put her in that position, especially when it's ridiculous things and not even her admirable traits, of which she has many.

That's a very good question. I've seen it done, by moderators. Apparently it's ok to do that, as long as one's interpretation is the popular one. 

Yes, this does bring up a very deep topic of moral relativism. Who gets to decide? And isn't that a hallmark of religion, when 'authorities' decide which is the 'correct' interpretation and tell others what to believe?

There are certain tenets of the Law of One that are considered established. I've seen moderators reiterate these points as a given.

Again: Who gets to decide?

STS does not mean bad, it means that you priorize yourself over someting else. You are simply the Creator priorizing the Creator over the Creator got that?

Good to know we are now separating the actor from the action in addition to cherry-picking concepts from the Law of One to make moral judgments on the actions of others.

Yes, making moral judgments is the ultimate sin...MUCH worse than killing someone! Let's be sure to make that clear, when we establish our doctrine.

Ra has explained the ratios. It is in the Material.

There is a distinction between an action being inherently STS, vs. a person being polarized STS.

Whether that action is 'good or bad' is relativistic, depending on the desired path. An entity seeking polarity on the STS path would benefit differently (in terms of polarization) than an entity who is STO-oriented, though they might make the same choice in a given situation.

Because your views are toxic.
"People do not need meat" you say.
Well, a considerable part of the Veil is enabled by the fear that these food animals contribute to the planetary vibration.
A 'person' by definition is a mask. A being in the process of remembering but still with 'personality', or aspects that are not true to the soul identity.
You imply that eating meat can effect polarity. This is particularly worrying.

So, we have seen that folks are investing millions in environmentally sustainable meat substitute products (Bill Gates etc.)
There is a trend towards a  meat free diat; the pointers are looking good.

What is your contribition Monica?

I've tried Soyrizo which is soy chorizo, and it was pretty good with eggs on flour tortilla.

But tortilla's are made with lard, so I think they're not really vegetarian.

Oh well, corn tortillas are pretty good too.
