1.0 Ra: I am Ra. I have not spoken through this instrument before. We had to wait until she was precisely tuned, as we send a narrow-band vibration. We greet you in the love and in the light of our Infinite Creator.
I have not spoken through this person before. We had to wait until she was tuned, because we use a narrow frequency band.
We greet you in the love and in the light of our Infinite Creator.
We have watched your group. We have been called to your group, for you have a need for the diversity of experiences in channeling which go with a more intensive, or as you might call it, advanced approach to the system of studying the patterns of the illusions of your body, your mind, and your spirit, which you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.
We have watched and have been called to your group because you have a need for a more intensive advanced approach in studying the patterns of illusions of your body, mind, and spirit, which you call “seeking the truth.” We hope to offer you a different point of view of those things that forever remain unchanged.
The Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator has only one important statement. That statement, my friends, as you know, is “All things, all of life, all of the creation is part of one original thought.”
The Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator has only one statement, which is, as you know, “All things, all of life, all of the creation is a part of one original thought.”
We will exercise each channel if we are able to. The reception of our beam is a somewhat more advanced feat than some of the more broad vibration channels opened by other members for more introductory and intermediate work.
We will work with each channeler here, if we are able. Receiving our beam is more difficult and advanced than the wider frequencies that other members have opened in their more introductory and intermediate work.
Let us for a moment consider thought. What is it, my friends, to take thought? Took you then thought today? What thoughts did you think today? What thoughts were part of the original thought today? In how many of your thoughts did the creation abide? Was love contained? And was service freely given? You are not part of a material universe. You are part of a thought. You are dancing in a ballroom in which there is no material. You are dancing thoughts. You move your body, your mind, and your spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns for you have not completely grasped the concept that you are part of the original thought.
Consider thought. My friends, what is it to think? Did you think today? What did you think about? Which thoughts were parts of the Original Thought today? How many of those thoughts were about the creation? Was there love in those thoughts, and was service freely given?
You are not a part of the material universe; you are part of a thought. You are dancing in an immaterial ballroom. You are dancing thoughts. You move your body, mind, and spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns because you have not yet completely grasped that you are part of the Original Thought.
We would at this time transfer to an instrument known as Don. I am Ra.
We will now transfer our frequency to Don.
I am Ra. I am again with this instrument. We are close to initiating a contact but are having difficulty penetrating a certain mental tension and distraction that is somewhat characteristic of this channel. We will therefore describe the type of vibration which is being sent. The instrument will find us entering the energy field at a slight angle towards the back of the top of the head in a narrow but strong area of intensity. We are not able to offer any conditioning due to our own transmitting limitations. Therefore, if the instrument can feel this particular effect he may then speak our thoughts as they come to him. We will again attempt this contact. I am Ra.
We are again with Carla.
We are close to making contact through Don, but we are having some problems getting through due to Don’s characteristic mental tension and distraction. Therefore, we will describe the type of vibration that is being sent.
You will feel us entering the energy field at a slight angle toward the back of the top of the head. It is a strong and narrow area of intensity.
We cannot offer any conditioning due to our limitations in transmitting; therefore, if he can feel this effect, he can speak our thoughts as they come to him.
We will try again.
This instrument is resisting our contact. However, we assure her that we are satisfied that contact with the one known as Don is not at this time preferable to that instrument. We will, therefore, move on to the one known as Leonard. Again we caution the instrument that it is a narrow-band communication which is felt as a vibration entering the aura. We will now transfer this contact. I am Ra.
Don is resisting our contact. We assure Carla that Don does not wish to channel. Therefore, we will move to Leonard.
Again, we remind the instrument that we use a narrow frequency that is felt like a vibration in the aura.
We will now transfer to Leonard.
I am Ra. We greet you once more in the love and the light of our Infinite Creator. We ask that you be patient with us, for we are a difficult channel to receive. However, we may perhaps add some dimensions to your understanding.
We greet you once again in the love and the light of our Infinite Creator.
We are a difficult channel to receive, so please be patient with us. Perhaps we can add to your understanding.
At this time we would be glad to attempt to speak to any subject or question which those entities in the room may have potential use in the requesting.
At this time, we would be glad to try to speak on any subject or question which any of you may find useful.
1.1 Questioner: It seems members of the Confederation have a specific purpose. Is this true with you, and if so, what is your purpose?
Ra: I am Ra. We communicate now. We, too, have our place. We are not those of the Love or of the Light. We are those who are of the Law of One. In our vibration the polarities are harmonized, the complexities are simplified, and the paradoxes have their solution. We are one. That is our nature and our purpose.
We also have our place. We are not those “of the love” or “of the light.” We are those of the Law of One.
Where we are from, all opposites are harmonized, complex things are simplified, and paradoxes have a solution. We are One. That is our nature and purpose.
We are old upon your planet and have served with varying degrees of success in transmitting the Law of One, of Unity, of Singleness to your peoples. We have walked your earth. We have seen the faces of your peoples. This is not so with many of the entities of the Confederation. We found it was not efficacious. However, we then felt the great responsibility of staying in the capacity of removing the distortions and powers that had been given to the Law of One. We will continue in this until your, shall we say, cycle is appropriately ended. If not this one, then the next. We are not a part of time and, thus, are able to be with you in any of your times.
We are ancient on Earth, and we have served, with varying degrees of success, by transmitting the Law of One, of Unity, of Singleness to your peoples.
We have walked on Earth and have seen your faces. This is rare for Confederation entities to do, and we found that it did not work out very well.
We then felt the responsibility to stay on Earth and attempt to fix the distortions and powers that had been attached to the teachings of the Law of One, and we will continue doing this until your cycle ends.
If we cannot fix this now, we will try in the next cycle. Since we are not a part of time, we can be with you at any point on your timeline.
Does this give you enough information from which to extract our purpose, my brother?
Does this answer your question, my brother?
1.2 Questioner: Yes, it does. Thank you.
Ra: We appreciate your vibration. Is there another query?
We appreciate you. Is there another question?
1.3 Questioner: I’ve heard of the name “Ra” in connection with the Egyptians. Are you connected with that Ra in any way?
Ra: I am Ra. Yes, the connection is congruency. May we elucidate?
Yes, there is a connection. May we explain?
1.4 Questioner: Please do.
Ra: What do you not understand?
What is it that you do not understand?
1.5 Questioner: Could you give me a little more detail about your role with the Egyptians?
Ra: I am Ra. The identity of the vibration Ra is our identity. We as a group, or what you would call a social memory complex, made contact with a race of your planetary kind which you call Egyptians. Others from our density made contact at the same time in South America, and the so-called “lost cities” were their attempts to contribute to the Law of One.
Ra is our identity. We are a social memory complex, and as a group we had made contact with the Egyptians.
At the same time, others from our density made contact with those in South America, and the “lost cities” were their attempts to contribute to the Law of One.
We spoke to one who heard and understood and was in a position to decree the Law of One. However, the priests and peoples of that era quickly distorted our message, robbing it of the, shall we say, compassion with which unity is informed by its very nature. Since it contains all, it cannot abhor any.
We spoke to someone who heard us and understood the teachings, and who was in a position to decree the Law of One [Akhenaten]. However, the priests and people of that era quickly distorted our message, removing the compassion that is a part of unity by its very nature.
Since the One contains all, it cannot hate anything.
When we were no longer able to have appropriate channels through which to enunciate the Law of One, we removed ourselves from the now hypocritical position which we had allowed ourselves to be placed in. And other myths, shall we say, other understandings having more to do with polarity and the things of your vibrational complex, again took over in that particular society complex.
When we could no longer find appropriate channels through which to speak the Law of One, we removed ourselves from the hypocritical position that we allowed ourselves to fall into.
Soon, other myths having more to do with very human struggles between light and dark took over in Egypt.
Does this form a sufficient amount of information, or could we speak further?
Is this enough information, or shall we add to it
1.6 Questioner: [Inaudible]
Ra: Is there another query?
Is there another question?
1.7 Questioner: [The question was lost because the questioner was sitting too far from the tape recorder to be recorded.]
Ra: I am Ra. Consider, if you will, that the universe is infinite. This has yet to be proven or disproven, but we can assure you that there is no end to your selves, your understanding, what you would call your journey of seeking, or your perceptions of the creation.
Consider that the Universe is infinite. This hasn’t yet been proven, but we assure you that there is no end to yourselves, your understanding, your journey of seeking, or your perceptions of Creation.
That which is infinite cannot be many, for many-ness is a finite concept. To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity; otherwise, the term does not have any referent or meaning. In an Infinite Creator there is only unity. You have seen simple examples of unity. You have seen the prism which shows all colors stemming from the sunlight. This is a simplistic example of unity.
That which is infinite cannot be “manyness,” because that is a finite concept. Infinity must be defined as a unity; otherwise, it means nothing.
In an Infinite Creator, there is only unity. You’ve seen simple examples of what unity is, such as a prism that shows all the various colors inherent in white light.
In truth there is no right or wrong. There is no polarity for all will be, as you would say, reconciled at some point in your dance through the mind/body/spirit complex which you amuse yourself by distorting in various ways at this time. This distortion is not in any case necessary. It is chosen by each of you as an alternative to understanding the complete unity of thought which binds all things. You are not speaking of similar or somewhat like entities or things. You are every thing, every being, every emotion, every event, every situation. You are unity. You are infinity. You are love/light, light/love. You are. This is the Law of One.
In truth, there is no right or wrong. There is no polarity, because all will “reconciled” at some point in the dance through life that you amuse yourself with. This was not necessary, but it was chosen by each of you as an alternative to experiencing the complete unity of thought binding all things.
You are not just similar or somewhat like other beings or things. You are every thing, every being, every emotion, every event, and every situation. You are unity. You are infinity. You are love/light, light/love. You are. This is the Law of One.
May we enunciate this law in more detail?
Do you wish to have more detail?
1.8 Questioner: [Inaudible]
Ra: Is there another query at this time?
Is there another question at this time?
1.9 Questioner: Can you say anything about the coming planetary changes?
Ra: I am Ra. I preferred to wait until this instrument had again reached the proper state of depth of singleness or one-pointedness before we spoke.
I needed to wait until Carla once again reached the depth of singleness or one-pointedness before we spoke.
The changes are very, very trivial. We do not concern ourselves with the conditions which bring about harvest.
The [earth] changes are very, very trivial, and we are not concerned with the conditions that bring about harvest.
1.10 Questioner: Another question. Is it possible to create any acceleration of understanding [in] other entities [or are] all efforts… efforts by the individual on himself accelerating his understanding? In other words, if an individual tries to act as a catalyst in general to increase the awareness of planetary consciousness, is he doing nothing but acting upon himself or is it possible [inaudible]?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall answer your question in two parts, both of which are important equally.
We will answer in two parts, both equally important.
Firstly, you must understand that the distinction between yourself and others is not visible to us. We do not consider that a separation exists between the consciousness-raising efforts of the distortion which you project as a personality and the distortion which you project as an other personality. Thus, to learn is the same as to teach unless you are not teaching what you are learning; in which case you have done you/they little or no good. This understanding should be pondered by your mind/body/spirit complex as it is a distortion which plays a part in your experiences at this nexus.
First, you must understand that we do not see any distinction between yourself and others. To us, there is no separation between your personality and another’s.
Therefore, learning is the same as teaching, unless you are not teaching what you are learning, in which case you have not done anyone any good. This should be pondered because this is a part of your current experiences.
To turn to the second part of our response may we state our understanding, limited though it is.
We will now use our limited understanding to answer the second part of your question.
[Side two of the tape of session 1 was taped over by the Sunday night meditation which followed it. The following is as published in Book I.]
Group-individuated consciousness is that state of sharing understanding with the other distortions of mind/body/spirit complexes, which are within the evident reach of the mind/body/spirit complex individual or group. Thus, we are speaking to you and accepting both our distortions and your own in order to enunciate the laws of creation, more especially the Law of One. We are not available to many of your peoples, for this is not an easily understood way of communication or type of philosophy. However, our very being is hopefully a poignant example of both the necessity and the near-hopelessness of attempting to teach.
Groups are for the purpose of sharing one’s understandings with the other members. So, when we speak to you, we must accept both our own distortions as well as yours [the belief that you are all separate from each other] in order to speak the Law of One.
We are not available to many of your peoples because this way of communicating, and this type of philosophy, is not easily understood. However, the very fact that we exist is hopefully a poignant example of both the need and the near hopelessness in trying to teach this.
Each of those in this group is striving to use, digest, and diversify the information which we are sending this instrument into the channels of the mind/body/spirit complex without distortion. The few whom you will illuminate by sharing your light are far more than enough reason for the greatest possible effort. To serve one is to serve all. Therefore, we offer the question back to you to state that indeed it is the only activity worth doing: to learn/teach or teach/learn. There is nothing else which is of aid in demonstrating the original thought except your very being, and the distortions that come from the unexplained, inarticulate, or mystery-clad being are many. Thus, to attempt to discern and weave your way through as many group mind/body/spirit distortions as possible among your peoples in the course of your teaching is a very good effort to make. We can speak no more valiantly of your desire to serve.
Each member of this group is trying to use, digest, and diversify the information which we are sending to Carla without distorting it. The few people you will illuminate by sharing your light is far more than enough reason to make the greatest possible effort, because to serve one is to serve all.
It is the only activity worth doing: to learn/teach or teach/learn, and nothing works better to demonstrate this teaching through your very being. Still, there will be misunderstandings, so it would be very helpful to make an effort to work your way through these misunderstandings with as many other people as possible.
We consider your desire to serve to be valiant.
May we speak in any other capacity upon this subject?
Do you wish anything further on this subject?
1.11 Questioner: Will you be available for communication? Can we call on you in the future?
Ra: I am Ra. We have good contact with this instrument because of her recent experiences with trance. She is to be able to communicate our thoughts in your future. However, we advise care in disturbing the channel for a few moments and then the proper procedure for aiding an instrument who has, to some extent, the need of re-entering the mind/body/spirit complex which the instrument has chosen for the life experience of this time/space. Do you understand how to nurture this instrument?
Because Carla is recently experienced in trance, we have good contact with her, so she will be able to communicate for us in the future. However, be very careful not to disturb her for a few moments after the session, and then follow the proper procedure to help her re-enter the body that she has chosen for this lifetime. Do you understand how to nurture her?
1.12 Questioner: No. Could you explain it?
Ra: We suggest first a brief period of silence. Then the repetition of the instrument’s vibratory complex of sound in your density which you call name. Repeat until an answer is obtained. Then the laying on of the hands at the neck region for a brief period so that the instrument may recharge batteries which are not, shall we say, full of the essence of this particular field at this time. And finally, a gift of water into which the love of all present has been given. This will restore this entity, for her distortions contain great sensitivity towards the vibrations of love and the charged water will effect comfort. Do you now understand?
First, we suggest a brief period of silence, followed by repeating her name until she responds. Then, briefly lay your hands on her neck so that she can recharge her “battery,” which is currently lacking enough essence from your particular energy field.
Finally, charge a glass of water with the love of all those present and offer it to her as a gift. This will restore the instrument since she is very sensitive to the vibrations of love, and the charged water will comfort her.
Do you understand?
1.13 Questioner: Not completely.
Ra: I am Ra. We search your mind to find the vibration “Alrac.” It is this vibration from you which contains the largest amount of what you would call love. Others would call this entity “Carla.” The charging of the water is done by those present placing their hands over the glass and visualizing the power of love entering the water. This will charge that very effective medium with those vibrations.
We find in your mind the name “Alrac” [“Carla” backwards], which when used by you contains the largest amount of love. Charging the water is done by all those present placing their hands over the glass and visualizing the power of love entering the water. This will charge the water, which is a very effective medium, with those vibrations.
This instrument is, at this time, quite fatigued. However, her heart is such that she continues to remain open to us and useful as a channel. This is why we have spent the time/space explaining how the distortions of what you may call fatigue may be ameliorated.
Carla is currently quite fatigued. However, in her heart she continues to remain open to us and to be useful as a channel, so this is why we have taken the time and space to explain how fatigue may be alleviated.
Under no circumstances should this instrument be touched until she has responded to her name. I do not wish to take this instrument beyond her capacity for physical energy. It grows low. Therefore, I must leave this instrument. I leave you in the glory and peace of unity. Go forth in peace, rejoicing in the power of the One Creator. I am Ra.
