RE: Submitting Questions to "In the Now"
Hi! Love your stuff!

Currently we are experiencing space/time right? Ra talks about space/time as if it's our third density local custom and time/space as his fourth density social complex way to move. Ra speaks specifically in the Ra Material 11.17

" I am Ra. A mind/body/spirit social complex becomes a social memory complex when its entire group of entities are of one orientation or seeking."

Do they move thru time as we move through space? In that case; is cause and effect inverted compared to our third density experience? Are we two sides of the same fractal coin?

Thanks and love from

Hi Austin--

In his book “Soulcraft,” Bill Plotkin defines “soul” as “the vital, mysterious, and wild core of our individual selves, as essence unique to each person, qualities found in layers of the self much deeper than our personalities.” He defines “spirit” as the “single, great and eternal mystery that permeates and animates everything in the universe and yet transcends all.” Plotkin argues that a fully developed person needs to journey in both directions, downward toward the darkness of soul, and upwards toward the light of spirit. He says, “soul is ultimately an agent for spirit.”

RA refers to 3D humans as body/mind/spirit complexes, but I am not aware that RA mentions “soul” or its place in the cosmology of human spiritual evolution. It appears, however, that RA does contemplate something like Plotkin’s concept of a soul, given RA’s teachings of the basic function of free will, choice and catalyst in an individual human’s 3D incarnation.

Can you comment on the role of “soul” in the Law of One?

thanks,

david marshall

RE: Submitting Questions to "In the Now"
In prior sessions, Q'uo described the idea that there is a path of wisdom and a path of the open heart. Buddhism tends to appeal more to those on the path of wisdom, and Christianity tends to appeal more for those on the open heart. Also, I believe that Q'uo once said that the path of the open heart tends to produce results more quickly.

In the United States, most spiritual seekers who are awakening are on the path of the open heart.

However, some of us are unequivocally on the path of wisdom. It is easy for us to get stuck in a rut due to a rather academic approach to spirituality, and it is also easy to become emotionally stubborn because the knowledge of human behavior makes it more difficult to take social situations and interactions seriously.

Beyond daily meditation and stillness, how can we find balance and perhaps gain more of what is commonly found by those who cannot approach spirituality through an intellectual lens?

RE: Submitting Questions to "In the Now"

  1. Can you comment on the tension and unity on the spiritual path between compassion for the self and the need of discipline? 
  2. Confederation sources have spoken at length on the utility of trauma and suffering in spiritual evolution of third density entities.  But what about the suffering of second density entities like animals?  What purpose might that serve when there is no choice to be made?
  3. What is channeling like?

RE: Submitting Questions to "In the Now"
1. Is it possible to experience the infinite nature of reality first hand without drugs or being a guru? Is it always difficult to open the gateway to intelligent infinity?
2. Could the normal person handle experiencing the true nature of reality?
3. Is experiencing "All That Is" in 3D going to be a traumatic experience, or one of bliss?

There is an anthro somewhere who needs me.

Just published Episode #60 with our discussion on this. Just a note: while the whole episode is about this discussion, Gary and I both felt like we didn't fully explore the topic of animal suffering given how prominent it is in our culture and on our planet. It was a very abstract discussion. I doubt that it would be at all satisfying from a vegan/vegetarian perspective as well. It's maybe a bigger topic that we can dedicate another show to down the road.

I think it'd be great to have a vegan guest on (I can think of two ladies who would be perfect off the top of my head  Big Grin ) who can provide their point of view when you do get back to this question.

We talked about this in episode 61, just posted. Good discussion, thanks for the question.

Could you expand on that a bit? Not sure exactly what you're asking.

Well, since all three of you have some experience with channeling, I just thought the audience would enjoy hearing about your thoughts on it.

RE: Submitting Questions to "In the Now"
I recently found and started listening to all your podcasts through my phone when I am doing house work and I really appreciate your efforts in bringing your thoughts through these audio channels. I am very glad to find out that these are still being made and that you intend to keep this connection going! Btw, I really enjoy the music in the beginning and end of each one as well.

I wrote many questions for asking you at a later time and I will hopefully start with a (perhaps) very basic question:
  • In Voices of the Confederation (p.49) it is transmitted that the infringement of free will was never designed by our Creator... So, who designed it?
    (I do not mean any disrespect to the entities that communicated this, my point is: how come that something that was not designed may exist?)

Just a couple more followups for now:
  • If infringement was not supposed to be designed, and if a law is basically a body of rules/principles, why is there a law of the creation, i.e. the Law of One?
  • If we imagine an octave where there are no distortions, then there would be no infringement, but it seems that the opportunity for infringement derived more significantly due to other laws that are a result of distortions of this law, for example, the laws of love, the laws of light and, especially in our illusion, the Law of Free Will or the Way of Confusion (27.10). If distortions were designed to happen, wouldn't infringement naturally occur?

Hello Gents,

I just finished episode 61 and wanted to throw out a big THANK YOU! The timing was perfect for me and the episode was highly relevant. It was just what I needed to hear.

Side note: I'm also enjoying the new format with the added bantering.

Thanks again and have a great day!

PS. I hope to have more questions for you soon. Smile

Or does it literally polarize me towards Service to Self?  

Am I defeating my own intent to graduate through service to others by selfishly being of Service to Others by wanting to treat others the way I want to be treated because I actually want to be treated that way and treat others that way?

If you dont understand I'll be happy to rephrase Smile
I think that as long as your acting in a service to others way it does not matter what your desire is. And of course if you are service to others you will have a desire to treat otherselfs in a certain way. But even if you wanted to treat others in a negative way it's the actions that give you harvestibility not the desire.

Hi AmariPaul, not exactly podcast material question. The answer is a quick one, just subscribe to the "Gatherings Newsletter": https://www.bring4th.org/subscribe/. : )

Or become a very good psychic. To your preference.
