22.0 Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the Infinite Creator. I communicate now.

22.1 Questioner: The instrument would like to ask a couple of questions of you. I’ll get them out of the way first. The instrument would like to know why she smells the incense at various times during the day in various places?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument has spent a lifetime in dedication to service. This has brought this instrument to this nexus in space/time with the conscious and unconscious distortion towards service, with the further conscious distortion towards service by communication. Each time, as you would put it, that we perform this working our social memory complex vibrational distortion meshes more firmly with this instrument’s unconscious distortions towards service. Thus we are becoming a part of this instrument’s vibratory complex and it a part of ours. This occurs upon the unconscious level, the level whereby the mind has gone down through to the roots of consciousness which you may call cosmic.

This instrument has spent a lifetime dedicated to service. At this point in time, she has both a conscious and an unconscious distortion towards service, with a conscious preference of service by communication.

Every time we do a session, our social memory complex meshes more firmly with this instrument’s unconscious desires toward service. In this way, we are becoming a part of this instrument’s vibrations and she becomes a part of ours. This occurs upon the level of the unconscious, which is the level whereby the mind has gone down through to the roots of cosmic consciousness.

This instrument is not consciously aware of this slow changing of the meshing vibratory complex. However, as the dedication on both levels continues, and the workings continue, there are signals sent from the unconscious in a symbolic manner. Because this instrument is extremely keen in its sense of smell this association takes place unconsciously, and the thought-form of this odor is witnessed by the entity.

This instrument is not consciously aware of this slow change caused by the meshing of our vibrations. However, as the dedication from both of us continues along with these sessions, signals are sent from the unconscious in a symbolic way.

Since her sense of smell is extremely keen, the symbolic association of the incense smell takes place unconsciously, and she then witnesses the thought-form of this odor.

22.2 Questioner: Secondly, she would like to know why she feels more healthy now after she does these sessions. She’s generally feeling more healthy as time goes on.

Ra: I am Ra. This is a function of the free will of the entity. This entity has, for many of your years, prayed a certain set of sound vibration complexes before opening to communication. Before the trance state was achieved this prayer remained within the conscious portion of the mind complex and, though helpful, was not as effective as the consequence of this prayer, as you would call this vibrational sound complex, which then goes directly into the unconscious level, thus more critically affecting the communication from the spiritual complex.

This is due to her free will. For many years, she has said a certain prayer before opening herself up to communication. Before she achieves a trance state, this prayer stays within the conscious portion of her mind. Though this is helpful, the effect of the prayer itself is even more effective, which then goes directly into the unconscious level. This critically affects the communication from her spiritual complex.

Also, this entity has begun, due to this working, to accept certain limitations which it placed upon itself in order to set the stage for services such as it now performs. This also is an aid to re-aligning the distortions of the physical complex with regard to pain.

Also, due to these sessions, she has begun to accept certain limitations which she placed upon herself in order to set the stage for the services she now offers. This is also an aid to re-aligning the distortions of the body with regard to pain.

22.3 Questioner: Thank you. I’ll ask a couple of questions to clear up the end of the second cycle— the second major cycle. And then we’ll go on to the third and last of the major cycles.

Can you tell me the life span, the average life span, at the end of the second major cycle?

Ra: I am Ra. By the end of the second major cycle the life span was as you know it, with certain variations among geographically isolated peoples more in harmony with intelligent energy and less bellicose.

By the end of the second major cycle, the life span was the way it is now, with certain variations among geographically isolated peoples who were more in harmony with intelligent energy and less aggressive.

22.4 Questioner: Can you tell me the length of that sp— average span in years at the end of the second major cycle?

Ra: I am Ra. The average is perhaps misleading. To be precise, many spent approximately thirty-five to forty of your years in one incarnation with the possibility not considered abnormal of a life span approaching one hundred of your years.

Perhaps the term “average”might be a bit misleading. To be precise, many people spent approximately 35 to 40 years in one incarnation, but the possibility of a life span approaching 100 years was not considered abnormal.

22.5 Questioner: Then can you give me a— Can I assume then that this drastic drop from 700-year life span to one— less than one hundred years in length during this second 25,000-year period was because of an intensification of a… of a condition of lack of service to others? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is in part correct. By the end of the second cycle, the Law of Responsibility had begun to be effectuated by the increasing ability of entities to grasp those lessons which there are to be learned in this density. Thus, entities had discovered many ways to indicate a bellicose nature, not only as tribes or what you call nations but in personal relationships, each with the other, the concept of barter having given way in many cases to the concept of money; also, the concept of ownership having won ascendancy over the concept of non-ownership on an individual or group basis.

This is partially correct.

By the end of the second cycle, the Law of Responsibility had begun to be put into effect because of entities’ increasing ability to grasp the lessons to be learned in this density.

So, entities discovered many ways to indicate an aggressive nature, not only as tribes or nations, but in individual personal relationships. The concept of barter gave way in many cases to the concept of money. Also, the concept of ownership began to be seen as better than non-ownership on an individual or group basis.

Each entity then was offered many more subtle ways of demonstrating either service towards others or service to self with the distortion of the manipulation of others. As each lesson was understood, those lessons of sharing, of giving, of receiving in free gratitude— each lesson could be rejected in practice.

Each entity then was offered many more subtle ways of demonstrating either service towards others or service to self. (Service to self included the manipulation of others.)

As each lesson was understood, the lessons of sharing, of giving, and of receiving in free gratitude could be rejected in practice.

Without demonstrating the fruits of such learn/teaching the life span became greatly reduced, for the ways of honor/duty were not being accepted.

Because these entities were not demonstrating the fruits of these lessons, their life span became greatly reduced because the ways of honor and duty were not being accepted.

22.6 Questioner: Would this shortened life span help the entity in any way in that he would have more at times in between incarnations to review his mistakes, or would this shortened life span hinder him?

Ra: I am Ra. Both are correct. The shortening of the life span is a distortion of the Law of One which suggests that an entity not receive more experience in more intensity than it may bear. This is only in effect upon an individual level and does not hold sway over planetary or social complexes.

Both are correct. There is a distortion of the Law of One that shortens the life span so that an entity will not receive more intense experience than it can handle. This is only in effect upon an individual level and does not affect planetary or social complexes.

Thus the shortened life span is due to the necessity for removing an entity from the intensity of experience which ensues when wisdom and love are, having been rejected, reflected back into the consciousness of the Creator without being accepted as part of the self, this then causing the entity to have the need for healing and for much evaluation of the incarnation.

The shortened life span is because an entity must be removed from the intensity of experience that is created when wisdom and love are rejected, which are then reflected back into the consciousness of the Creator without being accepted as a part of the self. This causes the entity to have the need for healing, as well as a need to evaluate their lifetime.

The incorrectness lies in the truth that, given appropriate circumstances, a much longer incarnation in your space/time continuum is very helpful for continuing this intensive work until conclusions have been reached through the catalytic process.

Where this is incorrect is that, given the appropriate circumstances, a much longer incarnation is very helpful for continuing this intensive work until an entity reaches conclusions through the catalytic process.

22.7 Questioner: You spoke of the South American group that was harvestable at the end of the second cycle. How long was their average life span at the end of the second cycle?

Ra: I am Ra. This isolated group had achieved life spans stretching upwards towards the nine-hundred-year [900-year] life span appropriate to this density.

This isolated group had achieved life spans of 900 years, which are appropriate to this density.

22.8 Questioner: Then I’m assuming the planetary action that we’re experiencing now, which shortens, it seems, all life spans here, was not strong enough at that time to affect them and shorten their life span regardless. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. It is well to remember that at that nexus in space/time great isolation was possible.

This is correct. Remember that at that time, it was possible to be very isolated.

22.9 Questioner: About how many people populated the Earth totally at that time; that is, incarnated in the physical at any one time?

Ra: I am Ra. I am assuming that you intend to query regarding the number of incarnate mind/body/spirit complexes at the end of the second major cycle, this number being approximately three four five, oh oh oh, three hundred forty-five thousand [345,000] entities.

I am assuming that you are asking how many people were incarnate at the end of the second major cycle. There were approximately 345,000 entities.

22.10 Questioner: Approximately how many were harvestable out of the total number

Ra: I am Ra. There were approximately one hundred fifty [150] entities harvestable.

There were approximately 150 harvestable entities.

22.11 Questioner: A very small number. Then as the next cycle started… are these the entities then that stayed to work on the planet?

Ra: I am Ra. These entities were visited by the Confederation and became desirous of remaining in order to aid the planetary consciousness. This is correct.

Yes, the Confederation visited them and they wished to remain in order to aid the planetary’s consciousness.

22.12 Questioner: What type of visit did the Confederation make to this group of 150 entities?

Ra: I am Ra. A light being appeared bearing that which may be called a shield of light. It spoke of the oneness and infinity of all creation and of those things which await those ready for harvest. It described in golden words the beauties of love as lived. It then allowed a telepathic linkage to progressively show those who were interested the plight of third density when seen as a planetary complex. It then left.

A light being appeared bearing what looked like a shield of light. It spoke of the oneness and infinity of all creation and of those things which await those ready for harvest. It described in golden words the beauties of love as lived.

Then it allowed a telepathic link in order to show more and more to those who were interested the plight of third density when it is seen as a planetary complex. Then it left.

22.13 Questioner: And did all of these entities then decide to stay and help during the next 25,000-year cycle?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. As a group they stayed. There were those peripherally associated with this culture which did not stay. However, they were not able to be harvested either and so, beginning at the very highest, shall we say, of the sub-octaves of third density, repeated this density. Many of those who have been of a loving nature are not Wanderers but those of this particular origin of second cycle.

Yes, they stayed as a group.

There were some people who were peripherally associated with this culture who did not stay. However, they were not able to be harvested either, so they repeated this density beginning at the very highest of the sub-octaves of third density.

Many of those who have been of a loving nature are not Wanderers, but are those of this beginning group of the second cycle.

22.14 Questioner: Are all of these entities still with us in this cycle?

Ra: I am Ra. The entities repeating the third-density major cycle have, in some few cases, been able to leave. These entities have chosen to join their brothers and sisters, as you would call these entities.

In a few cases, some of those who repeated the third density major cycle have been able to leave. They chose to join their brothers and sisters.

22.15 Questioner: Were any of these entities names that we know from our historical past? That have appeared as incarnated beings we find in our history?

Ra: I am Ra. The one known as sound vibration complex, Saint Augustine, is of such a nature. The one known as Saint Teresa of such a nature. The one known as Saint Francis of Assisi of such nature. These entities, being of monastic background, as you would call it, found incarnation in the same type of ambiance appropriate for further learning.

The ones known as Saint Augustine, Saint Teresa, and Saint Francis of Assisi are of such a nature. Being of a monastic background, these people found incarnations in the same kind of setting that was appropriate for further learning.

22.16 Questioner: Well, then, as the cycle terminated 25,000 years ago, what was the reaction of the Confederation to the lack of harvest?

Ra: I am Ra. We became concerned.

We became concerned.

22.17 Questioner: Was any action taken immediately, or did you wait for a call?

Ra: I am Ra. The Council of Saturn acted only in allowing the entry into third density of other mind/body/spirit complexes of third density, not Wanderers, but those who sought further third-density experience. This was done randomly so that free will would not be violated for there was not yet a call.

The Council of Saturn only allowed the entry of entities of third density  who sought further third-density experience, not Wanderers. This was done randomly so that free will would not be violated because there was not yet a call.

22.18 Questioner: Was the next action taken by the Confederation when a call occurred?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Yes.

22.19 Questioner: Who or what group produced this call, and what action was taken by the Confederation?

Ra: The calling was that of Atlanteans. This calling was for what you would call understanding with the distortion towards helping other-selves. The action taken is that which you take part in at this time: the impression of information through channels, as you would call them.

The calling was from the Atlanteans. Their calling was for understanding with the distortion towards helping others. The action that was taken is the kind you are doing now: the impression of information through channels.

22.20 Questioner: Was this first calling then at a time before Atlantis became technologically advanced?

Ra: I am Ra. This is basically correct.

Yes, this is basically correct.

22.21 Questioner: Then did the technological advancement of Atlantis come because of this call? I am assuming the call was answered to bring them the Law of One and the Law of Love as a distortion of the Law of One, but did they also then get technological information that caused them to grow into such a highly technological society?

Ra: I am Ra. Not at first. At about the same time as we first appeared in the skies over Egypt and continuing thereafter, other entities of the Confederation appeared unto Atlanteans who had reached a level of philosophical understanding, shall we misuse this word, which was consonant with communication, to encourage and inspire studies in the mystery of unity.

Not at first. At about the same time as we first appeared in the skies over Egypt and continuing thereafter, other entities of the Confederation appeared to the Atlanteans. They had reached a level of philosophical understanding, if you pardon the term, regarding communication in order to encourage and inspire studies in the mystery of unity.

However, requests being made for healing and other understandings, information was passed having to do with crystals and the building of pyramids as well as temples, as you would call them, which were associated with training.

However, requests were also being made for healing and other understandings, so information was offered having to do with crystals and the building of pyramids and temples, which were associated with training.

22.22 Questioner: Was this training the same type of initiatory training that was done with the Egyptians?

Ra: I am Ra. This training was different in that the social complex was more, shall we say, sophisticated and less contradictory and barbarous in its ways of thinking. Therefore the temples were temples of learning rather than the attempt being made to totally separate and put upon a pedestal the healers.

This training was different because the Atlantean social complex was more sophisticated, less contradictory, and less barbaric in its ways of thinking. Therefore, the temples were temples of learning, rather than having the purpose of attempting to put the healers on a pedestal. 

22.23 Questioner: Then were there what we would call priests trained in these temples?

Ra: I am Ra. You would not call them priests in the sense of celibacy, of obedience, and of poverty. They were priests in the sense of those devoted to learning.

You would not call them priests in the sense of being celibate, obedient, and in poverty. They were priests in the sense of those who were devoted to learning.

The difficulties became apparent as those trained in this learning began to attempt to use crystal powers for those things other than healing, as they were involved not only with learning but became involved with what you would call the governmental structure.

Difficulties became apparent as the priests began to attempt to use crystal powers for things other than healing, because they became involved in not only learning but with the structure of government.

22.24 Questioner: Was all of their information given to them in the way you’re giving our information now, through an instrument such as this instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. There were visitations from time to time but none of importance in the, shall we say, historical passage of events in your space/time continuum.

There were visitations from time to time, but none of importance in your history.

22.25 Questioner: Was it necessary for them to have a unified social complex for these visitations to occur? What conditions were nec— I’m saying, what conditions were necessary for these visitations to occur?

Ra: I am Ra. The conditions were two: the calling of a group of people whose square overcame the integrated resistance of those unwilling to search or learn; the second requirement, the relative naïveté of those members of the Confederation who felt that direct transfer of information would necessarily be as helpful for Atlanteans as it had been for the Confederation entity.

There were two conditions. The calling of a group of people whose square overcame the integrated resistance of those unwilling to search or learn. The second requirement was the relative innocence of certain members of the Confederation who felt that the direct transfer of information would be as helpful for Atlanteans as it had been for the Confederation entities.

22.26 Questioner: I see then. What you’re saying is these naïve Confederation entities had had the same thing happen to them in the past so they were doing the same thing for the Atlantean entities. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. We remind you that we are one of the naïve members of that Confederation and are still attempting to recoup the damage for which we feel responsibility. It is our duty as well as honor to continue with your peoples, therefore, until all traces of the distortions of our teach/learnings have been embraced by their opposite distortions, and balance achieved.

This is correct. We remind you that we are one of those naïve members of that Confederation, and we are still attempting to recoup the damage for which we feel responsibile.

Therefore, it is our duty and honor to continue with your peoples until all traces of the distortions of our teachings have been balanced by their opposite distortions.

22.27 Questioner: I see. Then I will state the picture I have now of Atlantis and you can tell me if I’m correct.

We have a condition where a large enough number of the entities of Atlantis had started at least going in the direction of the Law of One and living the Law of One for their call to be heard by the Confederation. This call was heard because, using the Law of Squares, it overrode the opposition of the Atlantean entities that were not calling. The Confederation then used channels such as we use now for communication and also made contact directly, but this turned out to be a mistake because it was perverted by some of the entities of Atlantis. Is this correct?

Ra: This is correct with one exception. There is only one law. That is the Law of One. Other so-called laws are distortions of this law, some of them primal and most important for progress to be understood. However, it is well that each so-called law, which we also call “way,” be understood as a distortion rather than a law. There is no multiplicity to the Law of One.

This is correct with one exception. There is only one law, and that is the Law of One. Other so-called laws are distortions of this law, even though some of them primal and most important for progress to be understood.

However, it is important that each so-called law, which we also call “way,” be understood as a distortion rather than a law. There is no multiplicity to the Law of One.

This will be the final question in length of this working. Please ask it now.

This will be the final question of this session. Please ask it now.

22.28 Questioner: What was the— the only question I was going to ask, that I can think of was— Could you give me the average life span of the Atlantean population?

Ra: I am Ra. The average life span, as we have said, is misleading. The Atlanteans were, in the early part of their cultural experience, used to life spans from seventy [70] to one hundred forty [140] years, this being, of course, approximate. Due to increasing desire for power, the lifetime decreased rapidly in the later stages of this civilization and, thus, the healing and rejuvenating information was requested.

As we have said, the average life span is misleading. In the early part of their cultural experience, the Atlanteans were used to life spans from 70 to 140 years. Of course, this was approximate.

Due to the increasing desire for power, the lifetime decreased rapidly in the later stages of this civilization; therefore, they requested healing and rejuvenating information.

Do you have any brief queries before we close?

Do you have any brief questions before we close this session?

22.29 Questioner: Is there any way that we can make the instrument more comfortable or anything that we can do for her?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument is well. It is somewhat less easy to maintain clear contact during a time when some or one of the entities in the circle of working is or are not fully conscious. We request that entities in the circle be aware that their energy is helpful for increasing the vitality of this contact. We thank you for being conscientious in the asking.

She is doing well. It is slightly more difficult to maintain clear contact when all entities in the circle of working are not fully conscious.

We request that entities in the circle be aware that their energy helps to increase the vitality of this contact.

We thank you for being conscientious by asking this.

I am Ra. It is a great joy to leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Creator. Adonai.
