I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 89.26:

 

"Questioner: All right, we'll attempt to do that. Ra stated that a major breakthrough was made when proper emphasis was put on Arcanum Twenty-Two. This didn't happen until after Ra had completed third density. I assume from this that Ra, being polarized positively, probably had some of the same difficulty that occurred prior to the veil in that the negative polarity was not appreciated. That's a guess. Is this correct?

 

Ra: I am Ra. In one way it is precisely correct. Our harvest was overwhelmingly positive and our appreciation of those which were negative was relatively uninformed. However, we were intending to suggest that in the use of the system known to you as the tarot for advancing the spiritual evolution of the self a proper understanding, if we may use this misnomer, of Archetype Twenty-Two is greatly helpful in sharpening the basic view of the Significator of Mind, Body, and Spirit and, further, throws into starker relief the Transformation and Great Way of Mind, Body, and Spirit complexes."

 

In this question Don assumed that Ra had not fully appreciated the nature of Arcanum Number 22 until after their third-density experience because there was so much positive polarity on their planet---and so little negative---that the negative polarity was not well apprehended as Ra said in 89.27:

 

"We had no negative harvest as such although there had been two entities which had harvested themselves during the third density in the negative or service-to-self path. There were, however, those upon the planetary surface during third density whose vibratory patterns were in the negative range but were not harvestable."

 

 Ra agreed that Don was correct in surmising that those of Ra did not grasp negative polarity very well, but that was not a factor in their realization of the how The Choice could aid their view of the Significators of Mind, Body, and Spirit as well as the Transformation and Great Way of Mind, Body and Spirit complexes.

 

I believe that what Ra is saying is that these Major Arcana were not viewed by Ra in the third density on Venus with the greater clarity that is possible when the seeker realizes that there is not just the positive path that is available to travel to seek union with the Creator, but there is also a totally opposite path that is also viable as a means of seeking this union. These Major Arcana are pivotal in storing the catalyzing experiences of all previous incarnations and in bringing about the transformation of the seeker into the fourth density. Since the positive polarity was really the only reality on Venus seekers would not be as aware of difficulties in perception that they did not have to deal with as the negative polarity and its challenges to positivity was hardly perceptible on Venus. In 60.16 Ra gives us a picture of their nearly idyllic conditions in their third-density experience:

 

"When we were aided by sixth-density entities during our own third-density experiences we, being less bellicose in the extreme, found this teaching to be of help. In our naïveté in third density we had not developed the interrelationships of your barter or money system and power. We were, in fact, a more philosophical third-density planet than your own and our choices of polarity were much more centered about the, shall we say, understanding of sexual energy transfers and the appropriate relationships between self and other-self.
 
We spent a much larger portion of our space/time working with the unmanifested being. In this less complex atmosphere it was quite instructive to have this learn/teaching device and we benefited without the distortions we found occurring among your peoples."

 

And, according to Ra, they may not have realized all of these implications that The Choice had in their third-density experience on Venus until they had graduated into the fourth density and could look back on their third-density experience without the veil to block these perceptions. This is just my not-so-well stated guess.

 

For the outside work this morning I watered the side yard and fertilized the castor beans. I also fertilized the water lilies in the fish pond and removed the yellow and dying lily pads so new ones could take their place. In the afternoon I blew the leaves out of the moss garden and then bagged them for yard waste pickup Thursday. I finished my outside work by trimming the moss garden.

 

Austin and Gary were busy as bees today, diving into L/L work as into flowers full of nectar:

  • Processed and shipped book orders and retrieved mail from the PO box.
  • Checked out a podcast by a couple of guys who invited us to be interviewed.
  • Finished updating the primary book pages on the archive site to include a better layout and links to free e-book versions.
  • Prepared for and participated in a call with the AVL study group about the workshop.
  • Looked into an issue with the Gatherings Newsletter.
  • Thanked two donors for setting up recurring donations. Thank you Muhammad and David!
  • Thanked Ami for providing volunteer airport transportation from the airport for the recent Asheville event.
  • Crunched all the financials from the Coming Home Gathering and worked with Jana on that point in advance of a video chat with Team Asheville.
  • Over video, held our first post-Coming Home Gathering meeting with our friends in Asheville including Jana, Aaron, BJ, Ionsul, and Karin. When asked to rate how well the event went, how positive the experience was, and so forth, we settled on around 44 on a scale of 1-10. We examined various logistical and other aspects that could be improved for the next event. And oh yeah, we officially decided on doing this every year!
  • In the evening joined the gang for August's practice channeling circle. This time we were joined by Jeremy who was in town for the weekend.

Earth May Heal Itself

 

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

 

Amidst the rampaging of the Earth, I come to you, the spirit of perfect love.

 

Against the storming of your peoples, I, the spirit of peace and understanding, greet you.

 

Against the folly of so many who eagerly seek to destroy the creation of the Father, I come with healing in my wings.

 

This day, turn your attention from these spoilers who ruin the Earth faster than the Earth may heal itself and gaze, in everywhere possible, at the beauties of the creation about you. Think upon your ways. Gaze upon the beauty that still remains and pray for guidance, that all things may be loved as the Father loves you.

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote is from: 89.15-17:

 

"Questioner: In other words, you might say that these were better than, say, 95% correct as far as representing what is on the walls of the Great Pyramid?

 

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

 

Questioner: The way I understand this, then, Ra gave these archetypical concepts to the priests of Egypt who then drew them upon the walls of one of the chambers of the Great Pyramid. What was the technique of transmission of this information to the priests? At this time, was Ra walking the surface among the Egyptians, or was this done through some form of channeling?

 

Ra: I am Ra. This was done partially through old teachings and partially through visions.

 

Questioner: Then at this particular time Ra had long since vacated the planet as far as walking among the Egyptians. Is this correct?

 

Ra: I am Ra. Yes."

 

In the question previous to this one Don asked Ra if the Egyptian tarot deck that we had was a close match with the twenty two images of the Major Arcana which are supposedly drawn on the walls of the Queen's Chamber of the Great Pyramid at Giza. Ra said that they were. So Don got specific and asked if Ra thought that these cards were 95% in agreement with those images in the Queen's Chamber. Again Ra agreed that this was true and reiterated their appreciation of these images in 99.6 when we considered using another deck in Book Four because we could not get the publisher's permission to use the Egyptian deck:

 

"The principle which moves in accordance with the dynamics of teach/learning with most efficiency is constancy. We could explore the archetypical mind using that set of images produced by the one known as Fathman or we could use those which have been used.
 
In point of fact, those which are being used have some subtleties which enrich the questioning. As we have said, this set of images is not that which we gave. This is not material. We could use any of a multitude of devised tarot sets. Although this must be at the discretion of the questioner, we suggest the maintaining of one and only one set of distorted images to be used for the querying and note that the images you now use are good."

 

In the next question Don made the assumption that Ra had given these cards to the Egyptian priests who then drew them upon the walls of the Queen's Chamber. Then he asked Ra how they transmitted these images to the priests. Ra replied that the priests got this information through already existing teachings and also through visions. In 88.21 Ra critiqued the accuracy of these images:

 

"However, those which were teach/learners after us first drew these images to the best of their ability within the place of initiation and later began the use of what you call cards bearing these visualizations' representations."

 

Ra felt that the Egyptian priests had been influenced in their drawings by astrological information that distorted the purpose of the Major Arcana and they mentioned this in 88.23:

 

"When the archetypes are shuffled into the mix of astrologically oriented cards which form the so-called Court Arcana and Minor Arcana these archetypes become magnetized to the psychic impressions of the one working with the cards, and thusly become instruments of a linkage between the practitioner of the astrological determinations and divinations and the one requesting information. Oft times such archetypical representations will appear in such a manner as to have seemingly interesting results, meaningful in configuration to the questioner. In and of themselves, the Major Arcana have no rightful place in divination but, rather, are tools for the further knowledge of the self by the self for the purpose of entering a more profoundly, acutely realized present moment."

 

Ra completed their answer by saying that this contact with the Egyptian priests occurred after they had walked among the Egyptians 11,000 years ago, but there was never a specific date associated with this contact.

 

In comparing Arcanum Number 3 with Arcanum Number 4 we are once again viewing the relationship between a female principle, exemplified by the Catalyst of the Mind and known as the Empress, and a male principle which is the Experience of the Mind and known as the Emperor. The light and dark areas of the Empress card suggest that most catalyst appears to be negative at first glance. But if the seeker has made a choice of positive polarity the Experience of the Mind can transform this seeming negativity to positive polarity. The negative can also continue to choose negative interpretations of the seeming negative catalyst and further intensify its negative polarity.

 

The Empress holds a bird in her left hand that seems to be moving through the rings of the circle or sun, and this image suggests that all catalyst comes through the subconscious mind before the conscious mind is aware of it. The Emperor does not actually reach for this catalyst but as it becomes aware of the catalyst it holds it firmly in order to work with it. This work is the equivalent of ennobling the portion of the unconscious mind represented by the Empress. And the fact that Emperor has more obviously contrasting light and dark areas than the Empress suggests that within the action of the Emperor the choice of paths has been made.

 

This was another Sabbath Day of Rest, but I watered the flower gardens in the front yard as we are getting dry again. Besides meditating a little more than usual I also took the opportunity to read a couple of essays that were sent to me by a faithful Law of One student. He works as a counselor and uses the Law of One principles in his counseling in a fashion that he tailors to the needs of each client. He is most perceptive and inspiring in his work.

 

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

The Universality Of Suffering

 

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

 

You have pain in your heart. Is that so remarkable? It is given to each to suffer pain and, through suffering, to learn and grow.

 

The spirit of love wishes most greatly to comfort and relieve the heart's suffering and asks you to gaze about at each person with whom you come in contact. Open the windows of the heart and be vulnerable before the pain of each other person and so see the universality of suffering. Then turn your hearts to the great fruits of suffering: compassion and joy.

 

For do you not see entities, day after day, sacrificing their concerns for the needs of others: mothers and fathers for their children, friends for friends, and, in the heart which has grown sweet with compassion, stranger for stranger?

 

The spirit sees the whole without boundaries of geography or personality. You dwell in boundaries and limits. Yet by seeing the pain of another soul, so you may see that your lot is not unlucky. Then open yourself to the healing movement of the spirit of love within which answers the call of the pain of others. And join in that harmony of compassion that forms a net of love about your beautiful planet amongst all peoples.

 

We leave you in the peace of true wholeness, both now and ever. Amen.

 

 

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 89.2-.4:

 

"Questioner: I have two questions [of a] personal nature. First, during the last intensive meditation the instrument experienced very strong conditioning from an entity which did not identify itself and which did not leave when she asked it to. Will you tell us what was occurring then?

 

Ra: I am Ra. We find the instrument to have been given the opportunity to become a channel for a previously known friend. This entity was not able to answer the questioning of spirits in the name of Christ as is this instrument's distortion of the means of differentiating betwixt those of positive and those of negative orientation. Therefore, after some resistance, the entity found the need to take its leave.

 

Questioner: Was this particular entity the fifth-density visitor that we have had quite often previously?

 

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

 

Questioner: Is he back with us at this time?

 

Ra: I am Ra. No. The attempt to speak was due to the vigilant eye of the minions of this entity which noted what one may call a surge of natural telepathic ability upon the part of the instrument. This ability is cyclical, of the eighteen diurnal period cycle, as we have mentioned aforetimes. Thusly, this entity determined to attempt another means of access to the instrument by free will."

 

During the time of the Ra contact Carla and I held "intensive meditations" for the purpose of teaching new students how to channel. At one of these meditations, just a few days before this session with Ra, Carla experienced a contact, during one of these meditations, with an entity which had a strong presence but refused, for a while, to leave when Carla asked it to. Ra mentioned that it was our fifth-density negative friend who was attempting to gain "access" to Carla's mind/body/spirit complex in order to lead her into negative time/space. A couple of sessions earlier Ra had mentioned that this negative friend had reached a crisis point in its relationship to us in that it was losing polarity because it was not able to control us as Ra mentioned in 86.5:

 

"Questioner: Can you tell me anything of the nature of this crisis?

 

Ra: I am Ra. The polarity of your companion is approaching the critical point at which the entity shall choose either to retreat for the nonce and leave any greetings to fourth-density minions or lose polarity. The only other potential is that in some way this group might lose polarity in which case your companion could continue its form of greeting."

 

Our negative friend returned for this attempt to control Carla's spirit because its fourth-density minions had noted an increase in Carla's natural channeling ability, due a favorable time period in Carla's adept's cycle. In 64.10 Ra described the nature of this 18-day cycle, or adept's cycle:

 

"The spiritual or adept's cycle is an eighteen-day cycle and operates with the qualities of the sine wave. Thus there are a few excellent days on the positive side of the curve, that being the first nine days of the cycle - precisely the fourth, the fifth, and the sixth - when workings are most appropriately undertaken, given that the entity is still without total conscious control of its mind/body/spirit distortion/reality.

The most interesting portion of this information, like that of each cycle, is the noting of the critical point wherein passing from the ninth to the tenth and from the eighteenth to the first days the adept will experience some difficulty especially when there is a transition occurring in another cycle at the same time. At the nadir of each cycle the adept will be at its least powerful but will not be open to difficulties in nearly the degree that it experiences at critical times."

 

It was probably less than a year before this session that Carla had implemented the "challenging of spirits" in order to determine who she had on the line before she channeled them. She was well aware that it is a crowded universe that we share with many entities that we would not wish to communicate with, such as our negative friend. So she decided to challenge them in the name of Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior. She would challenge three times asking each entity, which wished to channel through her, if it came in the name of Jesus Christ, and could they say, "Jesus is Lord". She did this every session. When she challenged contacts in this way she felt that Jesus was by her side in the spiritual realms so that no entity would dare to lie.

 

In comparing archetypes Number One and Number Two we are looking at what I consider to be the fundamental relationship within all of the concepts of the archetypical mind. Number One is the Matrix of the Mind, the Magican, which is the conscious mind. Number Two is the Potentiator of the Mind, the High Priestess, the unconscious mind. I consider them basic because the Magician represents the male principle of reaching, and the High Priestess represents the female principle of awaiting the reaching.

 

What the Magician is reaching for is catalyst that it can process in what  may be called a magical way, for if done successfully such processed catalyst results in experience that can enhance the spiritual journey of the seeker. The High Priestess, being in close touch with pre-incarnative choices, is able to color or bias the catalyst that the male reaches, in a way consonant with these pre-incarnative choices, for within the great sea of the unconscious mind of the High Priestess. The High Priestess awaits the reaching of the Magician in every perception of catalyst that the Magician is aware of. She is always within the reach of the Magician to lovingly guide the Magician on his path of seeking the truth.

 

Today my only outside work was to water the back yard which completed the watering of the whole yard for this week. I took the latter half of the afternoon off to attend a cookout that Gary and his wife, Trish, had at their house. They had invited a number of our L/L friends from both in town and out of state. It was a fine gathering of open-hearted people, and we all enjoyed Trish's fabulous cooking.

 

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

 

August 11

 

The Race Of Detail And Duty

 

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

 

We see that you have many concerns upon your minds this day and are already eagerly planning how to run the race of detail and duty. How quickly you feel you must run!

 

Know that the love of Jesus the Christ moves effortlessly and gracefully with you in each moment of concern, in each detail of the working day. As close as breathing is this love which smoothes and makes plentiful time, energy and coordination.

 

Indeed, there is no lack of things to do, yet neither is there a lack of service to offer in love. Let each detail be transformed by the inner asking of the knowledge of the love and service breathed forth by the spirit upon all material things.

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The quote from Ra today comes from 88.24:

 

"Questioner: Ra must have had a, shall we say, lesson plan or course of training for the twenty-two archetypes to be given either to those of third density of Ra or, later on, to those in Egypt. Would you describe this scenario for the training course?

 

Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last full query of this working.
 
We find it more nearly appropriate to discuss our plans in acquainting initiates upon your own planet with this particular version of the archetypes of the archetypical mind. Our first stage was the presentation of the images, one after the other, in the following order: one, eight, fifteen; two, nine, sixteen; three, ten, seventeen; four, eleven, eighteen; five, twelve, nineteen; six, thirteen, twenty; seven, fourteen, twenty-one; twenty-two. In this way the fundamental relationships between mind, body, and spirit could begin to be discovered, for as one sees, for instance, the Matrix of the Mind in comparison to the Matrices of Body and Spirit one may draw certain tentative conclusions.
 
When, at length, the student had mastered these visualizations and had considered each of the seven classifications of archetype, looking at the relationships between mind, body, and spirit, we then suggested consideration of archetypes in pairs: one and two; three and four; five; six and seven. You may continue in this form for the body and spirit archetypes. You will note that the consideration of the Significator was left unpaired, for the Significator shall be paired with Archetype Twenty-Two.
 
At the end of this line of inquiry the student was beginning to grasp more and more deeply the qualities and resonances of each archetype. At this point, using various other aids to spiritual evolution, we encouraged the initiate to learn to become each archetype and, most importantly, to know as best as possible within your illusion when the adoption of the archetype's persona would be spiritually or metaphysically helpful.
 
As you can see, much work was done creatively by each initiate. We have no dogma to offer. Each perceives that which is needful and helpful to the self."

 

In this question Don asked Ra to share their lesson plan for teaching the Egyptians the various cards of the archetypical mind. Coincidentally, I just yesterday finished trying to share with you readers how the same archetypal image in mind, in body, and in spirit had correlations with each other. Such as 1, 8, 15, etc. Fortunately, when Ra taught the Egyptians they were able to flesh out the archetypes of body and spirit so that the Egyptians could work with a full deck, shall we say. Our contact with Ra ended, due to Don Elkin's passing, before we could get detailed information on the body and spirit archetypes.

 

Then Ra said that the next step in teaching the archetypes was to have the students study other combinations of the archetypes such as: one and two; three and four; five; six and seven and continuing on in the same fashion for the body and spirit. So this will be my next attempt to grasp more of the relationships of the different aspects of the archetypical mind, but I will have the same problem of a lack of information for the body and spirit archetypes. Wish me luck.

 

So when the Egyptian students had completed this line of study the students were able to get a feel for the "qualities and resonances of each archetype" in a much deeper way. Then Ra utilized "various other aids to spiritual evolution" that would allow the student to actually become each archetype and know when a particular archetypal quality would be spiritually helpful. I can only guess what the "various other aids to spiritual evolution" were. I would think that some form of meditation would be one, probably done within the Queen's Chamber, the chamber for initiation. Some form of astral projection done either in the dream state or in meditation might have been a way to gain access to inner planes teachers who could continue the teaching/experiencing process.

 

Ra finished their answer by saying that each student would have a unique experience with each of the archetypes that would fall within a general boundary of possibilities as they reiterated in 91. 26:

 

"In each entity the image will resonate slightly differently. Therefore, there is the desire upon Ra's part to allow for the creative envisioning of each archetype using general guidelines rather than specific and limiting definitions."

 

 Their answer even suggests that each student would perceive the archetypes in a way that corresponded to their unique needs: "Each perceives that which is needful and helpful to the self."

 

 

That also suggests that as the student progressed in it's study and spiritual evolution that there might be additional perceptions of each archetype that the student would become aware of.

 

For my outside work this morning I began watering the yard again, beginning with the front yard. In the afternoon I pumped out one-fourth of the water in the fish pond and replaced it with fresh water. As the water was being pumped out I watered the flowers surrounding the fish pond, and as the water was being refilled I cleaned the filters surrounding the motor that runs the fountain. Then I completed trimming around the flower beds and walkways in the front and back yards and called it a day.

 

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

 

August 10

 

Put On Spiritual Clothing

 

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

 

Putting on the clothing is part of the preparation for the day's business. We suggest to you that you also put on the spiritual clothing of light which may aid the process of seeking during the day to come.

 

Visualize and call to the self that great armor of protection that goes before, follows after, guards upon each side and permeates each part and cell of your body. This armor of light enables the seeker to dwell within the state of joy and peace which the living waters of love, caught up in the armor of light, can bear.

 

Without such armor, without such deep remembrance of light, it is difficult to dance throughout the daily experience. Each time light is forgotten, be not discouraged but call in again upon yourself that great protection.

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 88.23:

 

"Questioner: You mentioned earlier that the tarot was a method of divination. Would you explain that?

 

Ra: I am Ra. We must first divorce the tarot as a method of divination from this Major Arcana as representative of twenty-two archetypes of the archetypical mind.
 
The value of that which you call astrology is significant when used by those initiated entities which understand, if you will pardon the misnomer, the sometimes intricate considerations of the Law of Confusion. As each planetary influence enters the energy web of your sphere those upon the sphere are moved much as the moon which moves about your sphere moves the waters upon your deeps. Your own nature is water in that you as mind/body/spirit complexes are easily impressed and moved. Indeed, this is the very fiber and nature of your journey and vigil in this density: to not only be moved but to instruct yourself as to the preferred manner of your movement in mind, body, and spirit.
 
Therefore, as each entity enters the planetary energy web each entity experiences two major planetary influxes, that of the conception, which has to do with the physical, yellow-ray manifestation of the incarnation, and that of the moment you call birth when the breath is first drawn into the body complex of chemical yellow ray. Thus those who know the stars and their configurations and influences are able to see a rather broadly drawn map of the country through which an entity has traveled, is traveling, or may be expected to travel, be it upon the physical, the mental, or the spiritual level. Such an entity will have developed abilities of the initiate which are normally known among your peoples as psychic or paranormal.
 
When the archetypes are shuffled into the mix of astrologically oriented cards which form the so-called Court Arcana and Minor Arcana these archetypes become magnetized to the psychic impressions of the one working with the cards, and thusly become instruments of a linkage between the practitioner of the astrological determinations and divinations and the one requesting information. Oft times such archetypical representations will appear in such a manner as to have seemingly interesting results, meaningful in configuration to the questioner. In and of themselves, the Major Arcana have no rightful place in divination but, rather, are tools for the further knowledge of the self by the self for the purpose of entering a more profoundly, acutely realized present moment."

 

In the previous question Ra had just told us that those of Chaldea and Sumer had received astrological information that resulted in the Court Arcana and the Minor Arcana of the tarot. And Ra had said in 76.6 that the tarot, as a whole, was used for divination.

 

"The origin of this system of study and divination is twofold: firstly, there is that influence which, coming in a distorted fashion from those who were priests attempting to teach the Law of One in Egypt, gave form to the understanding, if you will pardon the misnomer, which they had received. These forms were then made a regular portion of the learn/teachings of an initiate. The second influence is that of those entities in the lands you call Ur, Chaldea, and Mesopotamia who, from old, had received the, shall we say, data for which they called having to do with the heavens. Thusly we find two methods of divination being melded into one with uneven results; the, as you call it, astrology and the form being combined to suggest what you might call the correspondences which are typical of the distortions you may see as attempts to view archetypes."

 

So now Don asked Ra to explain what they meant by that statement that the tarot was used for divination. Ra began their answer by saying that it was necessary to remove the Major Arcana from the rest of the tarot deck of cards because Ra devised the Major Arcana as a means of studying the archetypical mind and not for divination as suggested in 88.15:

 

"Questioner: I'll make a guess that those of Venus third density who were the initial ones to partially penetrate the veil gleaned information as to the nature of the archetypical mind and the veiling process and from this designed the tarot as a method of teaching others. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. It is so."

 

Ra then described astrology as a means by which an initiate would attempt to describe the energies of each of the planets of our solar system and how they might affect a seeker. The initiate would be aware of the Law of Confusion and would attempt to describe how the various planetary influences could affect the seeker while avoiding the abridging of the seeker's free will. Ra likened these planetary energies to the moon's ability to move our oceans in their relation to land masses with high and low tides. Ra also said that each of us is moved in a similar fashion by the planets, and it is not only helpful to know how that movement might work but how we can move ourselves in our own spiritual journeys. When we become conscious seekers of truth it is then that we  begin to move ourselves on our path whereas those not consciously aware their spiritual purpose on Earth are moved by the planets, by unconscious catalyst, and by guess and by golly. :]

 

Ra went on to say that both our moment of conception and our moment of birth were key in giving the initiate a picture of the life experience that awaits us at any particular time in our lives. This picture is made more "interesting", as Ra said when the Major Arcana are shuffled into the mix of the Court and the Minor Arcana. There is apparently a link then established between the astrologer and the seeker that allows the astrologer to see the immediate future of the seeker.

 

Ra finished their answer by saying that the Major Arcana were not meant to be used to predict the future. Their purpose is to help us get a grasp of our present moment of seeking the truth and describe how we can move from this moment into greater experiences of serving others and polarizing our consciousness in the positive sense. Negative entities can do the same on the service-to-self path.

 

My comments on comparing the Great Ways of the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit are rather slim since, as I have noted before, we were not able to question Ra extensively in the areas of the body and the spirit. So. . . Ra said that the Great Way of the Mind has a primary role to play in configuring the "particular framework within which the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit archetypes move." This is understandable since the mind has a direct link to the archetypical mind whereas the body and  spirit do not. They must be called up through the roots of the mind into the conscious mind, and then they can move to the areas of the body and spirit to enhance the evolution of the seeker.

 

Each of the Great Ways, (Body, Mind, and Spirit) is in effect a culmination of the six cards preceding it. They are all the spiritual journey in action so that eventually contact with intelligent infinity and the realization of the unity of all things is experienced by the seeker.

 

For my outside work today I decided to cut the grass. This time the whole yard was ready for cutting as I had only cut the faster-growing sections last week. I followed that with the trimming the side yard until I ran out of time.

 

However, Austin and Gary finished their week's work in the L/L office in fine fashion:

 

 

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

 

August 9

 

You Are The New Jerusalem

 

I am of the spirit of Jesus the Christ, the consciousness of divine love which lives within the world today and which pours through the clouds of mundane sin and sorrow like sunshine awaiting the grateful eye.

 

Do you not know that you are the city upon the hill, that you are the new Jerusalem and that in every cell of your body you may find, recognize and celebrate the renewing and recreative energy of the spirit of the living Christ?

 

You may say, "Jesus," and mean it not, yet the vibration shall come to you. You may say, "Come, Holy Spirit," and doubt greatly, yet eventually that energy shall come to you. Know each member, each thought, each cell of the wholeness of your body, the twelve upon twelve upon twelve which one hundred forty four thousand represents.

 

Allow, await and expect the power and the peace of the love of Jesus Christ and the new Jerusalem shall shine through you. And the city upon the hill be a beacon of light.

 

We leave you in joy and peace, both this day and evermore. Amen.

 

 

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the quote from Ra comes from 88.22:

 

"Questioner: Were the Court Arcana and the Minor Arcana a portion of Ra's teachings, or was this something that came along later?

 

Ra: I am Ra. Those cards of which you speak were the product of the influence of those of Chaldea and Sumer."

 

Once again Don asked Ra as to the origin of various portions of the tarot deck of cards. We already knew that the Major Arcana came from Ra's third-density experience on Venus. So Don asked Ra if the Court Arcana and Minor Arcana were also originated by Ra. Ra said that these portions of the tarot deck came from those of Chaldea and Sumer as Ra mentions in 76.6:

 

"The second influence is that of those entities in the lands you call Ur, Chaldea, and Mesopotamia who, from old, had received the, shall we say, data for which they called having to do with the heavens. Thusly we find two methods of divination being melded into one with uneven results; the, as you call it, astrology and the form being combined to suggest what you might call the correspondences which are typical of the distortions you may see as attempts to view archetypes."

 

Ra felt that the astrological additions to the Major Arcana were a distortion of what they hoped to offer as a means of studying the archetypical mind. They described astrology as a study of archetypes seen as "functions" rather than a study which sees the Major Arcana images as "things in themselves." Ra suggested  the study of the archetypes as "things in themselves" was the primary feature of the archetypical mind that they wished to emphasize because it was more informative. They stated their reasoning for this differentiation in 78.33:

 

"You may well consider the very informative difference between a thing in itself and its relationships or functions. There is much study of archetype which is actually the study of functions, relationships, and correspondences. The study of planets, for instance, is an example of archetype seen as function. However, the archetypes are, first and most profoundly, things in themselves and the pondering of them and their purest relationships with each other should be the most useful foundation for the study of the archetypical mind."

 

So after questioning Ra extensively on the seven archetypes of the mind, we had an artist friend in Atlanta re-draw these images without the astrological portions which came from the Sumerians and the Chaldees.

 

In comparing the Transition of the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit I was only able to determine that neither the Transition of the Mind card nor the Transition of the body card has any squares in it. The square shapes indicate the material  illusion which is considered unmagical. So the fact that there are no squares in either of these cards suggests that all that they represent partakes of what we would call magic: the changing of consciousness into a higher form.

 

However, the Transformation of the Spirit has a large rectangle in it which seems to be a coffin from which three entities are rising out of, seemingly in response to the angelic entity within the sun which is blowing a horn that is supposedly calling these entities home to the world of the spirit. So the transformation in the Spirit complex is not just a change in conscious but is also a change in location from the illusion of the third density to the true home in the spiritual realms.

 

Next up: the Great Way of the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit.

 

Austin and Gary joined me after lunch for episode #76 of our "In The Now" podcast. Today we took on the topic of what is truth? We found much to discuss in relation to this simple question. As usual, we had a great time playing off of each other's thoughts.

 

For my outside work today I washed the office and living room windows  which finished the first floor windows on the outside. We got half an inch of rain this morning which relieved me of the need to water any of the yard today. So I took my tape measure over to the castor beans and was amazed to discover that some of them are now 13 feet tall. They seem to be growing at the rate of about a foot per week, thanks to Fox's fish emulsion fertilizer.

 

Gary and Austin completed their L/L office work with a flair to their flow  today:

  • Published episode 75 of In the Now:
    - How do the concepts of privacy and transparency relate to fourth density and our spiritual paths?
    Available for streaming and download here. (Also on iTunes and podcast apps.)

  • And prepared for and recorded our longest episode of the podcast to date on the question of truth and resonance.

  • And continued connecting with another fellow who wants to have us on his fledgling podcast.

  • Received and stocked a shipment of Law of One books, and restocked the office book supply.

  • Processed and shipped the day’s book orders.

  • Got the final Homecoming dinner restaurant reservations foodbooked.

  • Shared the Confederation via social media.

  • Continued to tweak gatherings newsletter and discuss future redesign

  • Reached out to Lanny D., the fellow who created and independently runs the Law of One Instagram account to ask some questions with gratitude. By some absolutely incomprehensible means there are 132 thousand followers of his page.

  • Continued processing Homecoming work.

  • Received from Sophie of the One Center the 6-month report on the Chinese AWH, Secrets, and WIL.

  • Received from Jochen his quarterly reports for the German and French satellite stations. Some of the highlights of his, Misha’s, Bruno’s, Nicolas’s, and Tobias’s work follows:

    • German/French Report:
      Jochen completed the second part of his translation of Carla's The Choice. Containing the discussion of the first three chakras this publication comes to be a roughly 100 page long booklet, now available online and as softcover & kindle book. Jochen hopes to complete The Choice by the end of the year. For the production of the cover, for the first time, a professional graphic designer, David Joshua H, lend his abilities to build on the preliminary artwork of Michaele Matossian.

    • Tobias K. made his debut as a new translator, taking up some of Hatonn's and Oxal's early inspirations and giving them a German voice; Jochen completed another channeling from 1974.

    • Jochen published a number of smaller and middle-size publications from the Channeling Archive, mainly indexed session from 2016, including a collective volume of Confederation messages from January to May 2016.

    • Misha continued her translation of "Tilting at Windmills" up to Chapter XXV, and translated the bigger part of the Glossary to the Ra Contact during this quarter.

    • Bruno and Misha finalized the French version of an early Q'uo channeling session from December 14, 1986 about the birth and life of Jesus Christ.

    • Together with Nicolas Turban Jochen continued the French version of the Initiation booklet series which is based on mainly very early L/L channeled messages (from around 1974). Hence "Service d'Amour", the fourth and last part of the series for now, is soon going to appear. Additionally we'll be able to compile and publish collective volumes of these in French now, too.

 

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

 

August 8

 

Peace And Joy Undisturbed

 

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

 

Negative thinking lies all about you. You do not have to partake in it. When there is something which crosses your consciousness and turns the mind to negative emotion, move back into an awareness of the infinite love that is the principle of your life and know that the Christ within may find a positive answer in each and every situation; may find a way to increase light rather than discourage light; to find the words to heal and not to wound; to find the compassion that aids those who are bothersome rather than ignoring such entities.

 

The living spirit of Jesus the Christ is available at the present moment and at each moment of the infinity of creation. It is the gift of Jesus the Christ to all who follow in His footsteps.

 

No matter what you may suffer today, cast your mind always upon the positive; upon the loving and compassionate aspects of those things which are occurring and you shall find your peace and joy undisturbed in the heart of your being, as your being speaks the truth of unconditional love.

 

In that love and peace we leave you. Amen.

 

 

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 88.20-.21:

 

"Questioner: Well, how did the teacher relay information to the student with respect to visualization?

 

Ra: I am Ra. The process was cabalistic; that is, of the oral tradition of mouth to ear.

 

Questioner: Then when Ra attempted to teach the Egyptians the concept of the tarot, was the same process used, or a different one?

 

Ra: I am Ra. The same process was used. However, those which were teach/learners after us first drew these images to the best of their ability within the place of initiation and later began the use of what you call cards bearing these visualizations' representations."

 

In the last couple of questions Don asked Ra how they taught the concepts of the archetypical mind to their third-density students on Venus. In the previous question Ra said that they used the technique of visualization and occasionally drew these concepts but did not limit themselves to just one concept per card. So in this question Don asked Ra how they "relay information to the student" concerning the structure of the visualization. Ra replied that the technique was "cabalistic" and used the oral tradition of mouth to ear. The dictionary definition of "cabalistic" is:

 

"Cabalistic is a way of saying "secretive or mysterious." A book of ancient, mystical texts would be considered cabalistic. Any society or practice that's secretive and somewhat spiritual or mystical could also get the cabalistic label. The root is ultimately from Hebrew qabbalah, something handed down."

 

So Ra was handing down information concerning how various aspects of the archetypical mind could be envisioned by the student. This information came from the first of those of Ra's third-density experience on Venus who were able to penetrate the veil of forgetting and bring back this information, as Don confirmed in 88.15:

 

"Questioner: I'll make a guess that those of Venus third density who were the initial ones to partially penetrate the veil gleaned information as to the nature of the archetypical mind and the veiling process and from this designed the tarot as a method of teaching others. Is this correct?

 

Ra: I am Ra. It is so."

 

In the second question Don asked Ra if they used the same technique with the Egyptians, and Ra said that they did. But after Ra had left the Egyptians those Egyptian teachers, who followed Ra in teaching the tarot images as representations of the archetypical, mind drew these images on the walls of the Queen's chamber of the Great Pyramid. Ra mentioned that they drew these images "to the best of their ability," which suggests that there might have been some degree of distortion in their drawings. In 89.21 Ra mentions where some of these distortions came from:

 

"We would note that the representations drawn by priests were somewhat distorted by acquaintance with and dependence upon the astrologically based teachings of the Chaldees."

 

For my outside work this morning it was time to water the back yard. In the afternoon I weeded the entire yard, so now I am set to consider what portions of the yard will need to be mowed tomorrow. I finished my work outside by returning to the drier areas in the front yard to give them another watering as well as fertilizing the impatiens in the flower fall to try to get them looking greener for Homecoming.

 

Gary and Austin churned through another round of work in the L/L office today:

  • Spoke to a man on the phone about scheduling a guest appearance on his new podcast.

  • Processed and shipped the day’s lone order.

  • Heard from the first volunteer of the Ra youtube project that the project doesn’t fit his ability, thanked him for his efforts and began re-working the organization and procedures to apply to a group of volunteers rather than just him.

  • Worked on reformatting the Gathering’s Newsletter into a more email-friendly format, to come to the realization that its sheer length makes it non-email friendly. Explored other options for the future.

  • Shared the Confederation via social media

  • Responded to some reader emails

  • Wrote Steve E. about the next steps in working with a webmaster to build a new website

  • Tended to many things Homecoming throughout the day as it is beginning to heat up, including looking at the curriculum and finding ways to accommodate needs. Realizing that we need some kind of form for people to fill out when registering in future years as information is being continually missed.

  • Updated Garry and Jade and drafted a letter as a start to getting underway with a new webmaster for a new website.

  • Received from the humorous Kirilina a Bulgarian Session 19. Thank you, Kirilina! She is now caught up on editing her original 19 to RC standards and will commence from-scratch translation here on out.

  • Received from Anastasia a few 1979 transcripts in Russian and connected on our respective continent’s various sources of natural beauty, swapping some pics therein.

  • Got our first hard transcript count data. 1,588 English channeling transcripts . 238 in French. 220 in Spanish. 26 in both German and Russian. And a few in Portuguese, Italian, and Polish. We have a backlog of Chinese transcripts from Terry that have been awaiting the new website.

 

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

 

August 7

 

This World Of Wonder

 

We are of the principle of Jesus the Christ and we greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

 

Before you lies the vista of this fair and lovely day, soft and shimmering with summer colors, with the sweet exhaustion of heat and the generous beauty of nature's palette of many colors. Consider how you will approach this the creation of the Father through which you walk.

 

There are three ways to walk in this world of wonder. Most walk with their eyes averted from the beauty entirely. These are those who have not yet learned how precious the beauty of the creation is.

 

There are those who seize the beauty and hold it to them, counting each sight as a possession and rejoicing withal in the wonderful collection of sensual experiences. These are the takers, those who feel that all of creation is made for them and as a king or queen, so they declare sovereignty over all that they see. Even in their appreciation there is ownership.

 

There are those who, seeing all the beauties of the evanescent passage of time, give glory and thanks to the One which created them all and which created the appreciator as well. This appreciator is not the Lord of that which he surveys, but its shepherd and its servant; its trustee, if you will, as it is held in trust for generations to come.

 

Open your eyes and see the beauty, but see it as one who gives to beauty the glory of Jesus the Christ, that you may treat all aright and not be ashamed before your children and your children's children. For they, too, need beauty.

 

We leave you in peace and in love, both now and evermore. Amen.

 

 

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 88.18-.19:

 

"Questioner: I will ask the following questions to clear up possibly only the method of teaching these concepts which may give me important clues to understanding the concepts themselves. Did Ra use cards similar to the tarot cards for the training purpose in third density?

 

Ra: I am Ra. No.

 

Questioner: What did Ra use in third density?

 

Ra: I am Ra. You are aware in your attempts at magical visualization of the mental configuration of sometimes rather complex visualizations. These are mental and drawn with the mind. Another example well-known in your culture is the visualization, in your mass, of the distortion of the love of the One Infinite Creator called Christianity, wherein a small portion of your foodstuffs is seen to be a mentally configured but entirely real man, the man known to you as Jehoshua or, as you call this entity now, Jesus. It was by this method of sustained visualization over a period of training that we worked with these concepts.
 
These concepts were occasionally drawn. However, the concept of one visualization per card was not thought of by us."

 

In this question Don asked Ra if they used cards to teach the concepts of the tarot because he felt that Ra's method of teaching the tarot might give him some clues as to the meaning of the cards and their concepts. However, Ra said that they did not use tarot cards. So when Don asked them what method of teaching Ra used in third density they said that they used visualizations of the cards which were somewhat complex. They said that they were "drawn with the mind". In 50.8 Ra gives us a clue as to how this was done:

 

"The means of this working lie within. The key is first, silence, and secondly, singleness of thought. Thusly a visualization which can be held steady to the inward eye for several of your minutes, as you measure time, will signal the adept's increase in singleness of thought. This singleness of thought then can be used by the positive adept to work in group ritual visualizations for the raising of positive energy, by negative adepts for the increase in personal power."

 

Then Ra also used as an example of such visualization the Holy Communion that is used in the Christian churches wherein the bread and the wine used in the communion service are visualized as portions of Jesus's body and blood. In Luke 22:18-20 the first communion was described thusly:

 

"18 For I tell you that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes." 19 And He took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body, given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 20 In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you.'"

 

Ra finished their answer by saying that the tarot images were occasionally drawn, but they never limited themselves to just one image per card. That suggests that not only could each seeker obtain a unique meaning of the various facets of each card, but that each card could have some variations in design or content. However, Ra suggested in 88.16 that these differences were small:

 

"As we have stated previously, each archetype is a concept complex and may be viewed not only by individuals but by those of the same racial and planetary influences in unique ways. Therefore, it is not informative to reconstruct the rather minor differences in descriptive terms between the tarot used by us and that used by those of Egypt and the spiritual descendants of those first students of this system of study."

 

The last comparison that I would like to make between the Significators of the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit is a feature that is utilized throughout the tarot images. That is the concept that even though most of the catalyst that is processed into experience looks negative to begin with, it is possible to perceive it and process so that the positive seeker can magically turn darkness into light.

 

In the image of the Significator of the Mind the entity within the square box is looking left which would signify catalyst that looks negative in nature. But the little white entity which is on the main figure's left suggests that positive polarity often comes from catalyst that seems negative. The little black entity on the figure's right side also suggests that negative polarity often comes from seeming positive catalyst, so this reversing of expectations and perceptions can work both ways.

 

In the Significator of the Body the Hanged Man is looking to his left which, again, suggests that catalyst looks to be negative to begin with. But the two columns are covered with grapes which suggests that positive polarization can come from all catalyst.

 

In the Significator of the Spirit the sun has light and dark areas, which suggests that catalyst which appears negative can be used to produce both the positive and the negative paths of seeking. Once again we have both positive and negative polarity coming from sources which can seem at first glance to be just the opposite of the kind of polarity that can be produced, depending upon the interpretations given to the catalyst by the seeker of truth.

 

Next the Transformation of the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit.

 

For my outside work this morning I did some watering in the side yard and then weeded the moss garden with my trimmer. In the afternoon I transplanted ten coral bells into the cross area and used a bag of top soil that I bought yesterday to mound around each plant. It was only two years ago that I learned that coral bells like to grow in a mound of dirt, so now I am giving each one its own mound.

 

Gary and Austin each had a moundtain of work to do in the L/L office today:

  • Had a long talk with Steve E. about the long gestating project for a new L/L Research website.

  • Done did bunches of Homecoming work, including processing a seat cancellation and a presentation cancellation, emailing the attendee list for those needing to complete the registration process, shuffling some lodging around, and looking through Eddie’s excellent upcoming presentation on hieroglyphics and their connection to awakening and spiritual seeking. Eddie has a very commanding but gentle presence with a baritone voice and scholarly precision in enunciation, terminology, and delivery. And helped an attendee who somehow booked her Homecoming flight to Lexington! A 1.25 hour drive from here. Proper ball busting was offered. And grunted audibly at two old-time attendees who just now alerted us that one would speak about his movie-making experience with Don and Carla, the other would speak about being a freshman in Elkins’s physics class. Two awesome presentations, but kinda problematic because the presentation slots were all booked up months ago, an invitation they did not reply to. It is cats, sometimes, cats!

  • Finished editing the big Gatherings Newsletter and updated the database to include attendees of recent-most Asheville gathering. The new email system is very badass, such a time saver.

  • Shared the Confederation via social media.

  • Pilgrimaged to the Shangri-la of consumerism, Costco, to buy some office supplies.

  • Did some local shopping for office supplies.

  • Wrote the Board about an ongoing project.

  • Shipped book orders and retrieved PO box mail.

  • Did some research about a certain type of financial protocol, learning how this would apply to a certain current project.

  • Turned again to the Resources book and continued work on a couple essays.

  • Processed and shipped the day’s book orders, including a big order of books for the Asheville crew thanks to a generous donor who wanted them to have a stock.

  • Made corrections to the Chinese Ra Contact page thanks to Sean.

  • Ordered some office stock books from CreateSpace.

  • Processed PO box mail, including a big batch of Prison Ministry mail. Logged correspondence, scanned letters, and sent them on to Sam and Nick, also forwarding on some letter from them to seekers.

  • Updated some Living the Law of One 101 audible links thanks to an update to Audible’s “bounty” program changes.

  • Corresponded with a couple volunteers about the audio-based projects currently in the works.

  • Received this article from Eddie of a report from a mainstream media source about a scientific discovery of the way in which the Great Pyramid concentrates electromagnetic energy in certain chambers.

  • In sorrow, lamented the inherent sorrows of third density. Then, as a matter of disciplined seeking, gave thanks to the Creator for their catalytic potential in revealing self to self.

 

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

The Natural World As Teacher

 

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

 

I, the Comforter, ask you to allow the natural world that lies so close at hand to be your teacher this day. Gaze upon the mighty strength of the shoots of grass which grow in concrete. Look very closely and see the fecundity of the living God expressed in all the tiny insects which scurry across that busy sidewalk seeking sustenance and finding it. Listen to the sounds of the birds which ring out as joyful Psalms to the Creator and feel the wind of creation at your back.

 

We do not ask you to take these things into your mind and hold them where they will become lifeless and wither in the world of the hypothetical. Remain open, rather, to the revelations of the present moment, for the Creator has infinite lessons to teach to those who have understanding hearts and open ears.

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the quote from Ra comes from 88.17:

 

"Questioner: I will make this statement as to my understanding of some of the archetypes and let you correct this statement. It seems to me that the Significator of Mind, Body, and Spirit are acted upon in each of these by the catalyst. This produces Experience which then leads to the Transformation and produces the Great Way.

 

This is the same process for mind, the body, and spirit. The archetypes are just repeated but act in a different way as catalyst because of the differences of mind, body, and spirit. They produce a different type of experience for each because of the differences in the three. The Transformation is slightly different. The Great Way is somewhat different but the archetypes are all basically doing the same thing.

 

They are just acting on three different portions of the mind/body/spirit complex so that we can condense the entire archetypical mind into a way of saying that in making the Significator a complex basically we have provided a way for Catalyst to create Transformation more efficiently. Would you correct my statement, please?

 

Ra: I am Ra. In your statement correctness is so plaited up with tendrils of the most fundamental misunderstanding that correction of your statement is difficult. We shall make comments and from these comments request that you allow a possible realignment of conceptualization to occur.
 
The archetypical mind is a great and fundamental portion of the mind complex, one of its most basic elements and one of the richest sources of information for the seeker of the One Infinite Creator. To attempt to condense the archetypes is to make an erroneous attempt. Each archetype is a significant ding an sich, or thing in itself, with its own complex of concepts. While it is informative to survey the relationships of one archetype to another it can be said that this line of inquiry is secondary to the discovery of the purest gestalt or vision or melody which each archetype signifies to both the intellectual and intuitive mind.
 
The Significators of Mind, Body, and Spirit complexes are complex in and of themselves, and the archetypes of Catalyst, Experience, Transformation, and the Great Way are most fruitfully viewed as independent complexes which have their own melodies with which they may inform the mind of its nature.
 
We ask that you consider that the archetypical mind informs those thoughts which then may have bearing upon the mind, the body, or the spirit. The archetypes do not have a direct linkage to body or spirit. All must be drawn up through the higher levels of the subconscious mind to the conscious mind and thence they may flee whither they have been bidden to go. When used in a controlled way they are most helpful. Rather than continue beyond the boundaries of your prior statement we would appreciate the opportunity for your re-questioning at this time so that we may answer you more precisely."

 

In this question Don felt that he had found a short-cut by which to view the functioning of the archetypical mind. He attempted to condense their natures in such a way that one could quickly and easily understand them. Ra did give Don a little credit for some of his thought, but their basic response was that attempting to condense the archetypical mind was not recommended. The reason it was not recommended is that each archetypical image is "a thing in itself" which is made up of many different images that each have a contribution to make to the overall nature of each archetype.

 

Ra further said that although it was helpful in some ways to study the relationships of the archetypes, it was more helpful to discover "the purest gestalt or vision or melody which each archetype signifies to both the intellectual and intuitive mind." In 78.32 Ra mentions how astrology is actually the study of the relationships of archetypes:

 

"Properly, the archetypes have some relationship to the planets. However, this relationship is not one which can be expressed in your language. This, however, has not halted those among your people who have become adepts from attempting to name and describe these relationships. To most purely understand, if we may use this misnomer, the archetypes it is well to view the concepts which make up each archetype and reserve the study of planets and other correspondences for meditation."

 

Astrology was one of the methods of the study of the archetypical mind that Ra mentioned we could choose from, along with the tarot and the Tree of Life. I am glad that we did not choose astrology because when we were questioning Ra on each of the 22 Major Arcana of the tarot, Ra would often say that a certain portion of the image, such as stars and wands, were of astrological origin and should be removed from the image. We were very fortunate in choosing the tarot as Ra devised the tarot in their third-density experience on Venus.

 

In 89.19 Ra mentions a little more about the "gestalt or vision or melody" that may be discovered when their course of study of the tarot was completed:

 

"The concept complexes which together are intended to represent the architecture of a significant and rich portion of the mind are intended to be studied as individual concept complexes; as Matrix, Potentiator, etc., in viewing mind/body/spirit connections; and in pairs with some concentration upon the polarity of the male and the female. If these are studied there comes the moment when the deep threnodies and joyful ditties of the deep mind can successfully be brought forward to intensify, articulate, and heighten some aspect of the magical personality."

 

Ra finished their comments by reminding us that the archetypical mind functions by informing our thoughts which then may affect our minds, our bodies, or our spirits. But the archetypical mind only has an indirect connection to the body or spirit, which then is transmitted to the conscious mind by being drawn up through the unconscious mind. The nature of the archetypical mind was expressed by Ra in 93.14:

 

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

 

And again in 91.37:

 

"The archetypical mind, when penetrated lucidly, is a blueprint of the builded structure of energy expenditures and all seeking, without distortion. This, as a resource within the deep mind, is of great potential aid to the adept."

 

The second area of the Significators of Mind, Body, and Spirit that I would like to share is more of the nature of each as it functions as the actor upon the stage of life.

 

The Significator of the Mind has a covenant with the Spirit which is signified by the wings at the top of the card. These wings draw the mind, which seems trapped within the rectangle in the image, onward towards the contact with the Logos which it seeks for illumination of its being. The Significator of the Mind has all of the experiences of the mind/body/spirit complex from all previous incarnations to call upon as it moves itself through the process of seeking the truth.

 

The Significator of the Body is also seemingly trapped within the square which represents the material illusion. But the grapes that are growing on both of the columns of the Hanged Man signify that growth within the material is not only possible but is quite fruitful. The Significator of the Body continually sacrifices itself in order that the mind may evolve in consciousness through all of the densities as it seeks union with the Primal Logos.

 

The Significator of the Spirit shows a man and a woman holding hands within a ring of flowers. In this image the Significator is operating without the veil of forgetting, and the man and the woman signify, I believe, the joining of the conscious and unconscious minds. This unification utilizes the power of the conscious mind and works most effectively when blended with the magical transformational qualities of the unconscious mind. The Magician and High Priestess are united in this image and function together as a unified being.

 

Even though this is a Sabbath Day of Rest the front yard required some watering this morning, and while I was outside I got inspired to transplant the periwinkle into the Wuthering Heights Mound as well as just a few in the front of the fish pond. I didn't feel bad about working on my usual Day of Rest because I have recently been allowing more flexibility into my rigid schedule. The results have been gratifying in that it feels more natural and fun to be more flexible, maybe giving more time than to one activity and a little less than usual to another depending upon the energies in motion at the moment.

The Spirit Speaks To Each

 

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

 

Each morning this instrument requests that she may offer the highest and best contact with us that she may. Then she names those within the meditation circle and holds them up to us.

 

We find, as we have so often found in those larger realms of which this instrument is not aware, that the spirit of Jesus the Christ speaks not to Christians but to those who love; speaks not to those who call themselves this or that kind of Christian but to those who act in a Christ-like manner whenever possible.

 

And we speak to those who may feel that they are lost from the love of Jesus the Christ. We say that the spirit speaks to each of you in a language that each understands, with comfort, strength and love.

 

For the principle of Jesus the Christ is the principle of divine love, a fiery and creative principle that makes things happen, that renews minds, souls and hearts and gives them strength for service. The spirit of the full consciousness of love lies upon and is available to each who may request it.

 

There is peace. There is the water of peacefulness. There is the realization of the reason for that ineffable and unworldly peace. These things the spirit leaves within you to ponder in your heart.

 

We leave you in the love, the joy and, above all, the peace that endures from everlasting to everlasting. Amen.

 

 

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

 

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

I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Ra quote comes from 88.16:

 

"Questioner: I will also assume, which may not be correct, that the present list that I have of the twenty-two names of the tarot cards are not in exact agreement with Ra's original generation of the tarot. Could you describe the original tarot, first telling me if there were twenty-two archetypes? That must have been the same. And if they were the same as the list that I have read you in a previous session or if there were differences?

 

Ra: I am Ra. As we have stated previously, each archetype is a concept complex and may be viewed not only by individuals but by those of the same racial and planetary influences in unique ways. Therefore, it is not informative to reconstruct the rather minor differences in descriptive terms between the tarot used by us and that used by those of Egypt and the spiritual descendants of those first students of this system of study.
 
The one great breakthrough which was made after our work in third density was done was the proper emphasis given to the Arcanum Number Twenty-Two which we have called The Choice. In our own experience we were aware that such an unifying archetype existed but did not give that archetype the proper complex of concepts in order to most efficaciously use that archetype in order to promote our evolution."

 

Since those of Ra developed the tarot in their third-density experience on Venus, Don asked them if they also used the twenty-two cards that we have in our Major Arcana. Don also asked them if there were any differences between the ones they developed and the ones from the Egyptian tarot that we used to question Ra about the archetypical mind.

 

Ra said that there were some minor differences in the cards that they developed and the Egyptian tarot. But they felt that these differences were unimportant since each student will see the tarot images in a unique way they first mentioned in 77.23:

 

"Secondly, we request that it be constantly kept before the mind, as the candle before the eye, that each mind/body/spirit complex shall, and should, and indeed must perceive each archetype, if you use this convenient term, in its own way. Therefore, you may see that precision is not the goal; rather quality of general concept complex perception is the goal."

 

They completed their answer by remarking that their full appreciation of The Choice did not occur until they had been harvested into the fourth density. They apparently did not see The Choice in third density to be the unifying concept, or goal, that they saw it to be without the veil of forgetting. I'm guessing here, but I think that there is a good chance that the importance of the choice of polarity that we make in third-density may be the "unifying" quality that Ra was speaking of that they did not fully appreciate in their third-density experience. In 78.21 Ra says this about The Choice:

 

"Questioner: You stated previously that The Choice that is made in this density, third density, is the axis upon which the creation turns. Could you expand on your reason for making that statement?

 

Ra: I am Ra. This is a statement of the nature of creation as we speak to you."

 

And then Ra said in 76.16:

 

"The prelude to choice must encompass the laying of the foundation, the establishment of the illusion and the viability of that which can be made spiritually viable. The remainder of the densities is continuous refining of the choice. This also is greatly lengthened, as you would use the term. The choice is, as you put it, the work of a moment but is the axis upon which the creation turns."

 

I believe that the unifying nature of The Choice, that Ra said they discovered after the third density, is that the choice of polarization is truly the axis upon which the work of all higher densities, and indeed the creation itself, is based. Without this choice there would be very little work possible in consciousness. With this choice all of the consciousness, which is the creation, is put into motion as a unit to provide the opportunity for the Creator to know Itself more fully, with greater intensity and variety. This Choice also allows each conscious entity to know itself as the Creator. All because of The Choice.

 

The first observations that I would like to make on the Significators of the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit concern their basic qualities as they function as the significator of each of these portions of the mind/body/spirit complex.

 

First, the Significator of the Mind, the Hierophant, expresses the most basic nature of the mind which is to "absorb, seek, and attempt to learn". As Ra said, the Hierophant is the original archetype of the mind which is both an actor on the stage of life and is acted upon by the four archetypical images that precede it. As an actor it is possessed of free will to choose its manner of beingness, and it exercises pure desire, or will, in using what it learns.

 

The Significator of the Body has the basic function of offering the mind a chance to have a beingness within the third-density illusion. It is constantly sacrificing itself in order to provide the mind with arms and legs to move about and a mouth to speak.

 

Then the Significator of the Spirit, The Sun, takes that which the mind has learned throughout its many incarnations within the third density and radiates this love and light of the One Creator to others if it is positively oriented, or it absorbs it for the self if it is negatively oriented.

 

For my outside work this morning I decided to finish watering the rest of the side yard and the back yard. Around noon I took a trip to Whole Foods to get another month's worth of classic granola and a few bananas. Then I dropped by the SunShine Gro Shop to pick up a number of flowers that I need to fill in some holes and get them growing by Homecoming. I bought periwinkle, impatiens, coral bells, hosta, and dragon-wing begonias. I got the impatiens and begonia transplanted, and then I watered and fertilized the impatiens in the front flower fall as their leaves are a light green instead of a deep green. The lady at the SunShine Gro Shop said the fertilizer should have the leaves all greened up by Homecoming. Fingers crossed. I finished my outside work by spraying deer repellant on the flower beds around the yard.

The Languages Of Love

 

I am of that principle of love which has been embodied forth in full manifestation in Jesus the Christ. I greet you in that love and in the living waters of its manifestation even unto this day, this hour and this minute.

 

This instrument has wondered why we speak both as "I" and as "we." We are all one principle, yet each seeking entity has its own perceptions of pain and comfort and so to one we shall appear upon one vibration and to another, another, just as your languages differ. Yet all may be used by the spirit to speak words of peace, comfort and transformation.

 

There is no circumstance, no personality, no mind or spirit or emotion which can keep one who seeks from the fire of love: love that may transform, love that may enable the love that lies within you, each of you.

 

Know that there is nothing that may keep you from the principle of love.

 

Know that comfort comes to you as you, in your unique way, ask for it, seek it and are able to hear it.

 

We leave you, as always, in the one peace which comforts all, now and ever. Amen.

 

 

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

 

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