5.0 Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of the Infinite Creator. I communicate now.
5.1 Questioner: The last time we communicated we were speaking of learning of healing. It is my impression that from what you gave to us in the earlier session that it is necessary to first purify the self by certain disciplines and exercises. Then in order to heal a patient, it is necessary, by example, and possibly certain exercises, to create a mental configuration in the patient that allows him to heal himself. Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Although your learn/understanding distortion is essentially correct, your choice of vibratory sound complex is not entirely as accurate as this language allows.
Although your understanding is essentially correct, your choice of words is not as accurate as it could be.
It is not by example that the healer does the working. The working exists in and of itself. The healer is only the catalyst, much as this instrument has the catalysis necessary to provide the channel for our words, yet by example or exercise of any kind can take no thought for this working.
It is not by example and the healer heals; healing simply happens. The healer is only a catalyst, in much the same way that this instrument has the abilities necessary to be our channel, yet she does nothing herself to force this work.
The healing working is congruent in that it is a form of channeling some distortion of the intelligent infinity.
Healing is a form of channeling a portion of intelligent infinity.
5.2 Questioner: We have decided to accept, if offered, the honor/duty of learning/teaching the healing process. I would ask as to the first step which we should accomplish in becoming effective healers.
Ra: I am Ra. We shall begin with the first of the three teachings/learnings.
We shall begin with step one of three.
We begin with the mental learn/teachings necessary for contact with intelligent infinity. The prerequisite of mental work is the ability to retain silence of self at a steady state when required by the self. The mind must be opened like a door. The key is silence.
First, one must learn what is necessary for contact with intelligent infinity. This includes the ability to retain silence as a steady state when required so the mind can be opened like a door. The key is silence.
Within the door lies an hierarchical construction you may liken unto geography and in some ways geometry, for the hierarchy is quite regular, bearing inner relationships.
Within the door of the mind lies a hierarchy similar to geography, and in some ways geometry, because the structure is regular with inner relationships.
To begin to master the concept of mental discipline it is necessary to examine the self. The polarity of your dimension must be internalized. Where you find patience within your mind you must consciously find the corresponding impatience and vice versa. Each thought that a being has, has in its turn an antithesis. The disciplines of the mind involve, first of all, identifying both those things of which you approve and those things of which you disapprove within yourself, and then balancing each and every positive and negative charge with its equal. The mind contains all things. Therefore, you must discover this completeness within yourself.
In order to master mental discipline, one must examine one’s self. The polarity of your dimension must be internalized.
Where there is patience, you must find impatience, and vice versa. Every thought has an opposite.
The discipline of the mind involves, first of all, identifying those things you like and those things you don’t like within yourself, and then balancing every positive and negative charge with its equal. The mind contains all things; therefore, you must discover this completeness within yourself.
The second mental discipline is acceptance of the completeness within your consciousness. It is not for a being of polarity in the physical consciousness to pick and choose among attributes, thus building the roles that cause blockages and confusions in the already-distorted mind complex. Each acceptance smooths part of the many distortions that the faculty you call judgment engenders.
Second, one must accept the completeness of one’s own consciousness. Those in physical consciousness [third density] are not to pick and choose attributes because this causes blockages and confusion in an already distorted mind. Each acceptance of opposites eases the distortions that the faculty of judgment creates.
The third discipline of the mind is a repetition of the first but with the gaze outward towards the fellow entities that it meets. In each entity there exists completeness. Thus, the ability to understand each balance is necessary. When you view patience, you are responsible for mirroring in your mental understanding, patience/impatience. When you view impatience, it is necessary for your mental configuration of understanding to be impatience/patience. We use this as a simple example. Most configurations of mind have many facets, and understanding of either self polarities, or what you would call other-self polarities, can and must be understood as subtle work.
The third discipline of the mind is like the first, but this time focus is outward toward others. Every being exists in completeness. Thus, the ability to understand opposites is necessary.
When you see patience in others, you are responsible for creating a mental image of a balance between patience and impatience. This is a simple example. Most configurations of mind have many facets, and the understanding of polarities, both personal and in others, must be seen as subtle work.
The next step is the acceptance of the other-self polarities, which mirrors the second step.
The next step is to accept the polarities in others, which mirrors the second step.
These are the first four steps of learning mental discipline. The fifth step involves observing the geographical and geometrical relationships and ratios of the mind, the other mind, the mass mind, and the infinite mind.
These are the first four steps of learning mental discipline. The fifth step involves observing the inner geography and geometry within the mind, the other person’s mind, the mass mind, and the infinite mind.
The second area of learn/teaching is the study/understanding of the body complexes. It is necessary to know your body well. This is a matter of using the mind to examine how the feelings, the biases, what you would call the emotions, affect various portions of the body complex. It shall be necessary to both understand the bodily polarities and to accept them, repeating in a chemical/physical manifestation the work you have done upon the mind bethinking the consciousness.
The second area of this teaching is of the body. It is necessary to know your body well, and to do this, you will use your mind to examine how the emotions affect various parts of the body. It will be necessary to learn the body’s polarities and to accept them, repeating in a physical way the work you have done upon the mind regarding consciousness.
The body is a creature of the mind’s creation. It has its biases. The biological bias must be first completely understood and then the opposite bias allowed to find full expression in understanding. Again, the process of acceptance of the body as a balanced, as well as polarized, individual may then be accomplished.
The body is created by the mind. It has its biases. The biological bias must first be understood, and then the opposite bias shall be allowed to find full expression in understanding. Again, this is how to accomplish the acceptance of the body as a balanced and polarized individual.
It is then the task to extend this understanding to the bodies of the other-selves whom you will meet. The simplest example of this is the understanding that each biological male is female; each biological female is male. This is a simple example. However, in almost every case wherein you are attempting the understanding of the body of self or other-self, you will again find that the most subtle discernment is necessary in order to fully grasp the polarity complexes involved.
Then the task is to understand the bodies of others. The simplest example is the understanding that each male contains female, and each female contains male. However, you will find that the most subtle discernment is required to fully grasp the complex of polarities involved.
At this time we would suggest closing the description until the next time of work so that we may devote time to the third area commensurate with its importance.
We suggest closing this teaching until next time so that we can devote more time to the third area, in order to give it the time it deserves.
We can answer a query if it is a short one before we leave this instrument.
We can answer a short question before we leave.
5.3 Questioner: Is the instrument comfortable? Is there any other thing that would increase the instrument’s comfort? That’s all.
Ra: I am Ra. The candle could be rotated clockwise approximately 10° each session to improve the flow of spiraled energy through the being’s receiving mechanisms. This particular configuration is well otherwise. But we ask that the objects described and used be centered with geometric care and checked from time to time. Also that they not be exposed to that space/time in which work is not of importance.
You could rotate the candle clockwise about 10° in every session to improve the flow of energy into the instrument. Everything is fine otherwise, but we do ask that the objects be centered with geometric care and checked occasionally. We also ask that these objects not be exposed to non-relevant events and activities.
I am Ra. I leave this instrument in the love and light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Creator. Adonai.
