12/29 - 1/3

  • Q'uo Transcripts: Received two transcripts from Aaron T., (thank you, Aaron!) then edited, formatted, and published them to the archive site:
    • December 7, 2019:
      Saturday Meditation: https://llresearch.org/transcripts/issues/2019/2019_1207.aspx
    • December 11, 2019 - Practice Channeling Circle:
      https://llresearch.org/homecomings/channeling_circles/practice_circles/2019_1211.aspx
  • Website New: Did another round of review of the web development team's work, then met for a video call to talk shop for a couple hours with the team. So impressed! So excited! A couple hundred thank you's to Daniel, Christian, and Ross. It could just be a couple months away!
  • Australia Garry: And in the birth of one new thing, we may be saying goodbye to another thing. Worked with the starlight Garry F. on the possibility of letting go of one of Bring4th's features, laying the groundwork for a re-envisioning of that branch of L/L's service. Worked with Mr. Plenum to address an ongoing Bring4th moderator issue. Thank you Garry!
  • Bulgarian: Received from Kilirina Sessions 28 - 29 in Bulgarian. Thank you, Kirilina!
  • Hebrew: Received an offer to translate to Hebrew and explained the ropes of translating and gave us a snapshot on where the existing Hebrew translation stands. We'll see what comes next.
  • Bavarian Video: Continued working to find appropriate Confederation quotes for Nadine and Thomas for the Law of One Overview video, that seems to be making some great progress. Annnd got together all of their pictures requested by Nadine, including getting a great shot of Jim meditating after Dan D. had climbed into his lap, and getting what is apparently the first photos of us (Gary and Austin) in the office, as none could be located.
  • Annual Fundraiser: Processed the last of the year's fundraiser donations from the PO box, which includes generating thank-you notes for Jim to sign and sending them off to each PO box donor. And concluded L/L's annual fundraiser! Thank you EVERYONE who contributed. We'll make an individual post for the fundraiser.
  • Work work: Climbed Mt. Bookkeeping, processed and shipped book orders around the world, and replied to the ever interesting seeker email, made some tweaks and updates to the archive site, such as updating the copyright date at the turn of the new year.
  • And this hum drum of an item: Received word from our shipping service that shipments to Brazil now require us to provide a tax ID number for the recipient. Tried to find any convenient way to either require this info to be collected from Brazilians, or simply disable Brazil as a valid destination in the online store. Searched far and wide for solutions, without success. Began working towards a quite tedious solution. [It's not all sixth density enlightenment at L/L.]

 

G. Bean personal sharing:

 

Found some reading time recently (yes!). I am loving Elizabeth Gilbert's book, Big Magic. Following is a page from that book for you who are seeking to find what the veil hid from your conscious mind:

 

"So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?

 

Look, I don't know what's hidden within you. I have no way of knowing such a thing. You yourself may barely know, although I suspect you've caught glimpses. I don't know your capacities, your aspirations, your longings, your secret talents. "But surely something wonderful is sheltered inside you. I say this with all confidence, because I happen to believe we are all walking repositories of buried treasure.

 

I believe this is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings, both for its own amusement and for ours: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels-that's creative living. The courage to go on that hunt in the first place-that's what separates a mundane existence from a more enchanted one.

 

The often surprising results of that hunt-that's what I call Big Magic."

 

Later in the book I got a good chuckle out of this one:

 

"It called to mind the British physicist Sir Arthur Eddington's memorable explanation of how the universe works: ‘Something unknown is doing we don't know what.'"

 

And as mentioned, a pic of Jim meditating with Dan D. Lion in his lap. Jim is in the living room sitting in the same seat he's occupied for decades. Carla's spot was always to his left. And, look at that beard!

12/16 - 12/28

  • Translations: Thanks to our amazing translators, got a batch of translated channeling transcripts formatted and published to the archive site:
  • Channeling Circle: Also received a transcript for the November 13th channeling circle from Aaron, edited, formatted, and published it: https://llresearch.org/homecomings/channeling_circles/practice_circles/2019_1113.aspx
  • New website work! Sweet Jesus is feels good to say that there is amazing progress underway. Held an internal meeting to make extensive review of the proposed layout of the new site, recording a volume of changes and suggestions. Relayed everything to the web dev team and worked to schedule a big pow wow to discuss the new site.
  • Other current-website work: Worked with Jochen to make some extensive corrections to the German archive of the channeling library, making their appearance more congruent with the German language. Also, as is usual, made some tiny corrections and adjustments to various parts of the archive site.
  • Prison Ministry: Continued working with our Prison Ministry volunteers to work through a bit of a backlog of Prison Ministry mail that accumulated during the trip to Europe, which is larger than expected. There seems to be something driving increased interest among incarcerated seekers.
  • Light/Lines: Formatted and published the PDF version of the Winter Light/Lines edition, then wrestled with MailChimp to get the email version all set up, formatted, and sent. A frustrating process that spawned a more intent search for another email newsletter solution. https://www.llresearch.org/newsletters/indexes/2019.aspx
  • Audiobook: Reviewed more of Jade and Kile's edits of the audiobook manuscript to send along to Trish, who is getting ever closer to the elusive end of the long process of editing the audio.
  • Regular bustle: As per usual, there are many emails to respond to (typically from seekers reaching out), many book orders to fill (especially during the holiday season), random things to process and take care of (like payroll, donations, etc.), and bookkeeeping.
  • Asheville meeting: Held the bi-weekly meeting with the Anchor Circle in Asheville to share ongoing plans for the Temple of the Open Heart. They are making great headway in incorporation, building a website, investigating organizational structures, and so forth.
  • Law of One books: Worked with the publisher of the original volumes on their project to launch a boxed set with new cover art.
  • Aaron Turner: is keeping pace with the higher volume of transcripts leaving L/L nowadays: 4 Saturday Q'uo channelings and two channeling circles per month. Edited four of the transcripts that she returned. So many thanks, Aaron!
  • Concept Guide Cover Art: Worked with another brilliant but other-gendered Aaron, this one Aaron Maret, on refinements to Julie's artwork for the cover art. May have reached the finish line. Thank you, Aaron!
  • Budget 2020: Added up the hours in building from scratch a new system to construct a budget for the upcoming year. Put together the finest L/L has ever seen and met with the Board for review and approval and subsequent adjustment.
  • Melbourne: Heard back from our friend Garry Fung that the first Australian Law of One meetup was a great success! Garry put together a multi-faceted day-long program that mirrored elements of L/L's annual Homecoming, with emphasis on personal sharing. We've never seen Garry so energized, actually. It was uplifting for us to see him take to the skies with such strength. The seekers attracted to this meeting seemed to enjoy their time together immensely, and Garry is hoping to hold the space for another sometime in 2020. This effort is needed, and we are very grateful to our friend for taking the lead in holding the light for wanderers in need of shared seeking.
  • Farsi translation: Received our first outreach for a Farsi translation of the Ra Contact! And in looking up Farsi, learned that "Farsi" is the endonym for the language: the internal name for a place, group of people, language, etc. Whereas "Persian" is the exonym of the language: the external name for a place, group of people, etc.
  • Romanian translation: Received from Horia P. a Book III in Romanian. Thank you, Horia!
  • Serbian translation: And followed up on a thread that died over the summer about an existing Serbian translation that needs review. Know any Serbian/Bosnian/Croatian Law of One readers? Send them this way.
  • Channeling circle 2: Met with Jim to conduct another training channeling circle as we build and develop our muscles.
  • Food poisoning: Also, Austin got knocked out hard by what was either really bad food poisoning or a really bad stomach bug. Either way, really bad.
  • Prayers to Roger: The documentarian we are working with on a potential Law of One docuseries has suffered a couple losses of loved ones recently. We share prayers of light with Roger, and invite a moment for anyone of the open heart to similarly do so.

12/8 - 12/15

  • Q'uo Transcripts: Got caught up on the backlog of transcripts awaiting publishing to the archive site. After receiving them from Aaron T. (Thank you Aaron!), edited, formatted, and published them:
  • Law of One Alps Video Then: Wrote an account of our time in Bavarian Germany following the Prague event. A group of 11 worked together to film material for a Law of One video. Scroll down to the next post or go directly there.
  • Law of One Alps Video Now: Worked on reviewing and collecting Confederation quotes for Nadine and Thomas to use in their production of the interview video we filmed during our time in the Alps.
  • Nuts & Bolts: Made some various small corrections to the archive site, published a PDF from Tomas (thank you Tomas!), etc. Caught up on Prison Ministry mail. Sent out an unusual number of book requests and catalog letters and forwarded some correspondence on to the volunteers. Responded to a variety of seeker email. Shared the Confederation via social media (thanks, Trish!). (And thanks, Jeremy, to his ever diligent efforts at Twitter.) Performed the weekly bookkeeping.
  • RC Audiobook Vol 2: Continued with the process of reviewing Jade and Kile's notes on the Ra Contact Volume 2 audiobook transcript and sending the finalized transcript to Trish for her to use in editing. We're nearing the end!
  • Transcript Library e-book: Continued working with Dale and Maria, who are converting the conscious channeling archive into ebook format. Received Volumes 8-16 and published them to the website, then did some preparation for them to continue past Volume 18 and convert the all transcripts up to 2020.
  • Time management: After weeks of being dragged down by failing software vital to time and task management, Austin was finally able to migrate the system to a new configuration, hopefully streamlining some things.
  • New Website: Met in office to thoroughly review the layout/organization aspects of the design for the new website. (SO freakin exciting!) Then spent a nice chunk of Sunday getting all our notes communicated into the mock-up PDFs for sending to Daniel and the web development team for an upcoming meeting.
  • Fictional series: Had a great meeting with Zak and Sam to share notes and discuss the most recent developments in the very exciting media project.
  • Meeting with Jim: Met with Jim a couple times to review the week of L/L business and to discuss a speaking invitation.
  • IMU: Worked with Robin at IMU (International Metaphysical University) on some tweaks to the L/L class, and to welcome a new student.
  • Lawofone.info: Learned from TW that he has added Czech to the website, and gotten the Ra Contact text uploaded. Congratulations, Tobey! Dialogued on adding more languages, the RC Index, and affiliate links.



Law of One Video in the Bavarian Alps
Published by L/L Central on December 14, 2019 2:33am.  Category: Gatherings

 

Prague, as reported here, was a delightful whirlwind of jet lag, no sleep, spending time with the Czech team, meeting translators, co-hosting L/L's first international event, and spending time with over 30 seekers. At the conclusion of the event Sunday night, our responsibility was to squeak in a few hours sleep, because the next morning we were bound for Salzburg, Austria! (Well, technically Bad Reichenhall, Germany.)

 

Day 1: Monday, Oct 15 (Day 5 of our trip)

Jim, Austin, Trish, and I woke Monday morning at our Airbnb where we were soon met by one of Prague's most spiritually enlightened citizens, at least one of its biggest hearts, Vojta of the Czech translation team. Super pro that he is, Vojta lead our party of five to the main train station. There we were met by Karin (of tribe Asheville) who had scooped up Misha (the Belgian French translator), growing our party from five to seven.

 

Sweetheart Romi was also there to say goodbye and ensure we got onto the train station. Both he and Radim were very kind in helping to get some of the departing attendees to the airport Monday morning. I miss those guys.

 

Tired though we were, Austin, Trish, and I were so stoked for the coming journey on a train. A real European train! The kind you read about! The kind you see in movies! And it would be hours long. And it would be traveling through the Czech and Austrian countryside. What heaven did we land in?

 

As the compartments could accommodate only six bodies, five us took one compartment, and two of us-Trish and me-took another that was unoccupied. Trish and I faced opposite of one another with a window between us, a glorious window to worlds we had never seen. And how wonderful it would have been to gaze outward the entire journey, indulging the eyes in wonder, but fate would have it that we were joined by two articulate Peruvian women, and two parties of two people together in a shared compartment eventually begs conversation. So it was that we could not devote our full attention to the passing scenes outside the window. (Which, funny enough, happened to Trish and me when we took a train from Cusco to Aguas Calientes at the base of Machu Picchu in Peru during our honeymoon. We were paired with a chatterbug and couldn't look out the window.)

 

Exchanging information with others, however, is not without redeeming value. They were kind and gave us a fascinating window not to the Czech countryside but into life inside Peru. We learned that it is easier to keep things clean in the USA (we do take great pride in our multi-surface cleaners), and that communists are much to blame in certain political instabilities. Did you know that the past four consecutive Peruvian presidents are jailed? Four!

 

Upon arriving at the Salzburg main train station, our seven-human party grew by two more as we met the pants-averse, blonde-haired and bighearted giant known as Thomas Florian Dopfer (he would be in shorts for the next four days), and the soft-spoken, kindhearted and quick witted Nadine Konzack.

 

This partnered couple were friends of the German translator Jochen Blumenthal. Somewhere in the months leading up to Prague, they proposed creating a video for L/L Research featuring Jim, Austin, and me talking about the Law of One. Nadine is a professional videographer and would volunteer equipment and boatloads of time filming and post-producing. Sounding like a win to us, we agreed and worked closely with her and Thomas to develop topics that we could explore, and to plan the logistics of lodging and moving 11 people while creating video in the span of 2.5 days.

 

Eleven people? That is because once our nine-person party left the Salzburg train station and reached our lodging of three nights just across the German border, we were met with the final two of our party: Jochen Blumenthal and Matthias Galke. When we arrived just past sunset, Jochen was there with Matthias waiting outside of our cars. Over five years of working with him from a distance and now the moment of a full embrace. There is no substitute for a meeting in the physical. And we were very eager for this meeting.

 

Jochen is a pioneer in the L/L world. He began as a volunteer translator six or seven years ago and then proposed a licensing partnership whereby he would be empowered to translate, print, and publish German translations of L/L material in Germany. And five years ago to the month, he formed Das Gesetz des Einen Verlag (Law of One Publishing House). Later, he teamed up with Misha Deschreider (the French translator) to incorporate French into the publishing house, forming Maison d'édition La Loi Une d'Edition de La Loi Une. Jochen was the final and ninth translator we would mee.

 

Matthias is a German teacher of yoga. Like our Australian friend Garry Fung, he is very quiet, preferring, I believe, the role of observer over speaker. He has read a good portion of the world's library (more on that later), including the Law of One books. He is also a friend of Jochen's who really wanted to meet Jim.

 

We were now at full strength with 11 of us split between MountainFloat and a nearby German home. We couldn't see our surroundings well, so we got settled in and gathered at the dinner table. On the first floor of the home was a corner room with a low ceiling and stone floor. One side of the room featured a kitchen, the other side a long, sturdy, solid-wood table with wooden chairs on one half, and a wooden L-shaped bench connected to wall on the other long and short side. Charming as could be, the house had a very old feel. 500-years old, to be exact. 500 years! (Except perhaps for remnants from a Spanish settlement in Florida, there is no building still in use in the US from five hundred years ago. British colonists did not arrive until the early 1600s, and those colonists ensured that little would remain of what native North American populations had built---though I don't think they built much with stone or other more durable material anyway.)

 

The proprietor, a pleasant fellow named Volker, made us all a lovely dinner, after which Jochen revealed a small surprise: he presented everyone with the first French printing of Secrets of the UFO, a gift to both Misha and L/L Research. We all signed the book and toasted the occasion. Then had a meeting to discuss some of the do's and don'ts of filming. (Do: speak confidently. Don't: pull the camera up to your face and shout "I'm comin for you!" Unless you're filming for WWE.)

 

Day 2: Tuesday, Oct 16 (Day 7 of the trip)

Organizing 11 people to move in sync. This takes some time. But out we eventually went, first to pick up a new mic because Nadine's had broken, then Nadine and Thomas took us to Konigsee inside of Berchtesgaden National Park where we . . .

 

But wait, the first event of the day was to glory in our surroundings. We were in Bavaria! We were in the ALPS! Or at least one corner of them. Holy shit. The Alps, particularly the Swiss Alps, are a hiker's Mecca. In another life, I would spend my days traveling the planet hiking mountains and all places of non-urban beauty. (And in between hiking, reforesting the planet, cleaning up the oceans, ending fossil fuels, transforming our criminal justice system, implementing green technologies, making healthcare a universal right, Etc. I would stay busy.)

 

Our destination was chosen for this video because Thomas had set his heart on being near the mountain known as Untersberg. This mountain and its surroundings are something of a new age hot spot that attracts the attention of shamans and seekers with lore of magic and the paranormal. And for reasons unknown to me, the Dalai Lama also called it the "heart of the world."

 

Our lodging was on the other side of Untersberg across a broad valley with beautiful-looking German homes and businesses nestled in the folds of the hills, alternating between rich green open spaces and trees.

 

Now back to Konigsee, a lake situated in a German national park that is the closest we've come to experiencing a fjord, flanked as it was by steeply inclined mountainsides. To call it gorgeous would be an understatement. The air was dry and crisp and the leaves, mostly orange, were bright with fall colors. Love was in the air.

 

My head was way too full from all the planning and execution of the just finished Prague event, along with the details of this new event, that I hadn't really preloaded my brain for the upcoming interview. I could only do what Austin and Jim were doing and consult the heart, hoping that years and years of study and distillation of this material would come out somewhat coherently in front of the camera.

 

We found a few spots alongside the shimmering lake for filming. Jim spoke about densities and sexual energy transfer, Austin about harvest and the veil of forgetting, and me about will & faith and polarity in consciousness. We had a stack of index cards, each of us choosing a topic we wanted to speak on. Nervous. Tense. What the h-e-double hockey sticks am I going to say? How am I going to talk to a camera? ---These were some of the thoughts going through me. I am a LOT more comfortable with a keyboard in front of me. In person, I am often tripping over my words, or saying too much, or too little, or not in the "right" way. Austin had a tension going into it as well, but once we got going, it eased up for us, though it never got easy. Jim, on the other hand, seemed natural.

 

While we filmed at the lake, Jochen and Misha were at the small cluster of shops a 15-minute walk back at the start of the trail. They have had a blossoming partnership for years and, thanks to this occasion, were able to meet in person for the first time. Another thread of joy in this group adventure.

 

We tried moving forward to do a little more filming near a waterfall, but that involved walking across a series of rocks in the water, then a little scrambling on the side of a rock face to get to a dirt trail. Jim is still very agile and physically able, but his body is also 74 years old, so he thought it might be wiser to avoid taking that risk, and we returned to regroup with the rest of our party and head into town for our first dinner in a German restaurant.

 

One of the secondary objectives of this event was to cultivate friendships with important friends, and times like this gave us the space to do. At dinner I sat next to Jochen and shared in a great depth of discussion about our personal paths, about L/L and, the coming office in Asheville, and other fun topics. Jochen has a very interesting personal history, having spent years living as a monk and ascetic in ashrams. He loves the contemplative life and its rituals of chanting, praying, and meditating.

 

I also got my first time with Matthias who blew my mind when he told me how many books he reads per week, and how he's been doing that uninterruptedly for 25 years. (The math turns out to some ridiculous number, like over 10,000 books, I can't remember.) He shared with me his years-long, epic passion project nearing completion. He is writing a comparative analysis of the Law of One, synthesizing it with other pieces from various fields in his studies. It is in German, so I could only revel in his explanations of the chapters as he scrolled through them on his tablet.

 

Day 3: Wednesday, Oct 17 (Day 8 of the trip)

Our final day together was devoted again to filming. We woke to another Volker-prepared breakfast, then got ready to film. There was no need to leave our lodging this time. Perched on a mountainside, it had expansive views of the valley below, and lots of color to offer due to the variously planted flowers on the property.

 

In arranging for this event, I had suggested that we get more people on camera besides Jim, Austin, and me, particularly Misha, Jochen, and Vojta. They could speak of their spiritual journey, the role of the Law of One in their lives, and their experience of translating the work. Translators have a very unique relationship with the material that Austin and I sometimes envy. Translating causes one to scrutinize and question word choice and syntax in a way that may never occur to the English reader.

 

Fortunately, they accepted the invitation. Trish, however, did not. She preferred behind-the-scenes support. And support she was. Both she and Karin were able to serve on Team Misha in helping her with mobility and other needs, including taking Misha into Salzburg to see the birth place of her beloved composer Mozart. Misha, a professional translator by vocation, has freely gifted L/L and French readers with more translations than anyone. It was a great pleasure to be able to help say thank you through this adventure.

 

So Nadine and Thomas got the translators Misha, Vojta, and Jochen on camera, and then we headed off to "heart rock." This is a rock the height of an average person that sits by itself off a path in a nearby German forest. It is so named because there is a cavity in the side of the rock that is roughly shaped into the classic image of a heart. Into this cavity water collects. What was interesting were all the offerings that visitors have left for the rock, including shaping another heart on the ground of various smaller rocks. It gave an enhanced air to the experience, and there I spoke about the heart chakra, Jim about uncondiontal love, and Austin about the energy centers altogether.

 

And then, back to MountainFloat where we did the final filming, Jim speaking about meditation and reincarnation, Austin about catalyst and healing, and me about wanderers. Each of us also spoke to what the essence of the Law of One for us (man, give me a keyboard, please!), and something of our journey. Then the three of us got together for a shared intro to L/L. It's a funny look, actually---we're mostly shaded against a bright background, so our faces don't come out well, and we're sloping downward on an incline, i.e., Jim lower than me, me lower than Austin. But, most L/L productions are usually a little rough around the edges, nothing too polished. This was true for my own part as I struggled to adequately speak what in writing I do effortlessly.

 

And then our third and final dinner, this one in Salzburg, with more great conversation and bonding time with old friends and new.

 

Afterword

On the final morning, Austin and I received a generous mini-workshop from Nadine about recording and editing video. Then we said goodbye to Matthias and to Mountainfloat, and the remaining ten of us converged in Salzburg. We split between two cars and took a gorgeous drive through Bavarian Germany to Munich, Nadine and Thomas's hometown. We shared a final dinner there together in an open-air courtyard, and the following morning Jim, eager to see his kitty cats, flew home to Louisville, it being his tenth day away. Austin, Trish, and I flew to Rome to meet with the Italian translator following in Jochen's footsteps, Gianluca, and his lovely partner, Inla. (Our weekend in Rome will be the next installment.)

 

In the days following our time together, Nadine and Thomas went straight to work. Nadine organized the videos into 21 segments, each on a different topic, and began constructing her process of post-producing. She crafted great graphics for introducing each person, and then selected all the places where quotes and pictures and music would be inserted. Meanwhile, Thomas began a diligent search to find supporting quotes from the Law of One to splice into the video sequences. And in this and other ways their volunteer efforts continue as they give L/L their labor of love.

 

We give thanks to everyone who helped make the event possible. From Matthias serving as boom operator, to Vojta contributing photos, additional video footage and music, Karin serving as was Misha support, boom operator, and interview coach, Jochen giving music for the video, transportation, and interview, Trisha serving as a driver, Misha support, and logistical arrangements, Misha for being herself, charming us all and lending her story to the camera, and especially to Nadine and Thomas who put in gobs of time working with us to plan this event, then film it, then months of effort in post. Thank you, everyone!

 

Like the seven consecutive days of filming for what would become the transcript book Tilting at Windmills, this recording was all done in one shot-no redo's. There are definitely times that we stumble (at least I know I did), but hopefully it will lend some authenticity to the video. We're not slick. We're not enlightened beings. Just plain seekers sharing some of the fruits of our own study, and hopefully shining some not-too-distorted light on the Law of One. And hopefully having no visible nose hairs.

 

Increasingly video is becoming a primary means for information sharing and learning. L/L Research has infinite amounts of text (I'm not helping . . . ), but little in the way of video. This video sequence was designed to address some of the basic topics of the Law of One. Not to be comprehensive. Not to be advanced. For the newbie doing a search, or "stumbling" along, our hope is that it may offer some seeds that may alert them to the Law of One, if indeed that is what their soul is seeking.

 

Reflections

One learns when meeting vibrationally resonant other-selves that it takes little to form bonds. Conversation, shared meals, and extended time is enough. Beautiful settings certainly enhance it. But a shared project in mutual service to one another, and to a collective goal, is perhaps among the most potent means of forging and deepening friendships. We all really just enjoyed each other's company. We are very lucky and very grateful for the experience.

 

And, oh, in what settings. Mountains everywhere we went, some snow-capped. And a stunningly crisp, clear, blue October sky. Daytime temps were perfect, neither cold nor hot. And, in fact, we learned that the Germans name different types of weather or pressure systems. The one responsible for the unseasonably warm mid-October weather was named Lisbeth.

 

This, however, was not the only synchronistic connection to Carla Lisbeth Rueckert. The other most prominent one occurred at the very start of our journey. As Trish, Jim, Austin, and I drove to the airport to depart from Louisville for Europe the week prior, I noticed a license plate on the car in the next lane over from us. It read "RUCK". This was one of Jim's nicknames for Carla. And minutes later as we pulled into the departure lane of the airport, a hawk circled overhead.

 

She would have loved to experience this. And she did, in each of our hearts.

7 out of 11 in one pic. Squared, that's a nice chunk of love/light. Not bad.

 

With love, your three bozos, Austin, Jim, and Gary.

 




2019-12-07 - Blogworthy Report

11/16 - 12/7

  • New transcript: There is a bit of a backlog of things to be published to the archive site thanks to the catch-up work from the Europe trip, the fundraiser, the Thanksgiving holiday, family emergency, and a huge convergence of activity and work, but we were able to get the Q'uo channeling from October 5th edited, formatted, and published published: https://llresearch.org/transcripts/issues/2019/2019_1005.aspx
    • We have received from Aaron T. every transcript up through mid-November (thank you, Aaron!), and shipped off the mp3s from everyone since then.
  • New website work: Spent half a day studying the super impressive web development document put together by the super impressive volunteer web dev team that is working hard to build a new website for L/L Research. What we saw . . . made our hearts skip a beat. It's the most tangible manifestation of a new website in (no exaggeration) six years of waiting. We formulated our list of questions and thoughts with plans, and then looked forward, as a new website really is around the corner now. Many many thanks to Daniel in particular for acts of heroism.
  • Fundraiser snail-mailing: Wrapped up the large annual task of preparing and mailing the fundraiser through the USPS small business marketing mailing system, which it seems like we are the only local organization utilizing, given that each year the USPS employees are as mystified as us when it comes time to hand it all over to them. But the task was completed successfully and the letters went out! Though the mailing list grows larger each year, some processes also become more streamlined.
  • Fundraising emailing: Wrote the annual "begging letter," as Carla called it. And then database work. Never an easy or fun thing, but a feeling of accomplishment follows its construction, along with several thousand outgoing emails. Through which we learned that the third-party email service we were using was being docked by google, thus routing all L/L emails sent to gmail to spam! Spent a few hours cleaning up the mess and sending using another service.
  • Audiobook production: Went through more of the notations of the audiobook manuscript marked by Jade and sent a fine edit document on to Trish, who continues the steady work of getting The Ra Contact Volume 2 edited. We're nearing the finish line for Volume 2!
  • Transcription: Began an experiment in using the neat tool otter.ai for transcription, a voice-to-text tool that incorporates impressive functionality that is a huge boon to transcribing. Set Laura up with the first experiment, the seeker Q&A meeting in Rome, and it worked like a charm!
  • Channeling Circle: Able to meet to squeak in one practice the evening before Thanksgiving. One of the new channels doing a marathon Q&A session following the main channeling.
  • Asheville developments: Joined Aaron, Jess, and BJ for their weekly task force meeting to continue hammering out some of the fundamentals of the collaboration to build and steward The Temple of the Open Heart (ToTOH). They are leading the way, including incorporating and establishing the legal prerequisites. Now that Europe is behind us, we will settle into a regular meeting rhythm.
  • Media, Media, Media:
    • Docuseries: Worked with Roger on his project to create a feature documentary/docuseries about L/L Research's story and the Law of One. At the point of articulating the basic agreement in a writing as prelude to a contract. Incidentally, heard from a seeker on the west coast who independently wrote with interest in creating a feature film on the same topic. Connected that seeker to Roger.
    • Salzburg/Untersburg Video: Continued receiving the fruit of Nadine's unstoppable march toward production of a video from our filming outside of Salzburg following the Prague event. Supported by her partner Thomas, she is doing incredible work. We're behind in keeping up with her as she is awaiting a substantial list of quotes and pictures, but were able to catch up a little with her pace.
    • Series treatment: A big watershed moment in the fictional series project headed up by one of our friends who owns an independent media production company. A series treatment was finally delivered thanks to the efforts of the professional writer who came to Louisville to meet us early this year. We met with Jim to share our analysis and bounce it back to the producer with a meeting scheduled for next week.
  • Concept Guide: Those words, so sweet on the tongue when able to be reported here, because that means work has resumed on the project. Finally finished processing all of Diana Roy's exquisite edits, both critical of and to the work. Thank you, Diana! Now everything is on Austin's desk, awaiting his resumption beginning with Part 4 of 9.
  • Cover art artwork: Met with Julie Joy for an afternoon to receive professionally photographed versions of the seeker she painted for the cover art of the Concept Guide! It is really, really awesome, and almost perfect save for a certain brightness/pastel that is landing quite right yet. Need some tweaking. But sent it off to Aaron Maret who rapidly returned mock-ups of the cover art. So exciting to see it come to life. Thank you, Julie! Thank you, Aaron!
  • Speaking opportunity: Discussed with one R. his invitation to come speak sometime this year for an evening in the Great Plains.
  • Yellow-ray Stuff: After stressing and pushing, finally received a needed update from the accountant for the books, and then slogged through a full day of backlogged bookkeeping. Worked with a broker on health insurance for next year, worked with a Portugeuse publisher on the rights for 101, performed some year-end tax stuff, worked on scheduling the Annual General Meeting with the board.
  • Other Stuff: Connected a German translator then a French publisher to the Das Gesetz des Einen Verlag German publishing house, replied to a variety of interesting and stimulating seeker email, worked with IMU (International Metaphysical University) on the availability of the 101 course as they move through a transition, shared the Confederation via social media (Thanks, Trish!), processed and shipped books.
  • Melbourne Seeker Meeting: Garry Fung, our dear friend and longtime volunteer moderator of Bring4th's forums, is facilitating an event for Law of One readers in Australia! Garry writes:

    Hello Fellow Seekers! And more specifically - any Law of One seekers based in Melbourne, Australia. An event has been organised for the Melbourne CBD (on Flinders Lane), for Saturday December 14. It will be an all-day event, and a small meeting room has already been booked. We currently have 6 attendees (I am flying down from Sydney), and there's room for a few more! There will be Presentations from the participants, group discussions, and focussd group Meditations. If you have a free day, and want to connect up with some fellow seekers, just send me a message over Facebook. My profile is: Garry Fung (https://www.facebook.com/GFungus). Please note: not an officially sanctioned L/L event

 

Then, a couple nuggets from Bean.

 

16.26 Questioner: Well, roughly how many total planets in this galaxy of stars that we're in have aware life regardless of density?

 

Ra: I am Ra. Approximately six seven, oh oh oh, oh oh oh [67,000,000].

 

16.27 Questioner: Can you tell me what percentage of those are third, fourth, fifth, sixth density, etc.? Roughly, very roughly.

 

Ra: I am Ra. A percentage seventeen for first density, a percentage twenty for second density, a percentage twenty-seven for third density, a percentage sixteen for fourth density, a percentage six for fifth density. The other information must be withheld. The free will of your future is not making this available. We shall speak on one item. There is a fairly large percentage, approximately thirty-five percent of the intelligent planets, which do not fit in the percentiles. These mysteries are of sixth and seventh density and are not available for our speaking.

 

That would mean that there are 18,090,000 third-density (human) planets in the Milky Way alone. Imagine how fundamentally changed our world would be to discover just one of those.

 

And then a seeker sent this cute youtube video that animates a journey into oneness:

Looking at the comments, I laughed hard at this one:

"So I'm the 9 dentists who recommended the toothpaste, and the one who did not."
