The Law of One, Book I, Session 23
This entity thus resolved to enter a series of incarnations in which it had no distortions towards power.
Questioner: Can you tell me what the average life span was for the Egyptians at the time of Ikhnaton?
Ra: I am Ra. The average life span of these people was approximately thirty-five to fifty of your years.
There was much, what you would call, disease of a physical complex nature.
Questioner: Can you tell me of the reasons for the disease?
I think I already know, but I think it might be good for the book to state this at this time.
Ra: I am Ra. This is, as we have mentioned before, not particularly informative with regard to the Law of One.
However, the land you know of as Egypt at that time was highly barbarous in its living conditions, as you would call them.
The river which you call Nile was allowed to flood and to recede, thus providing the fertile grounds for the breeding of diseases which may be carried by insects.
Also, the preparation of foodstuffs allowed diseases to form.
Also, there was difficulty in many cases with sources of water and water which was taken caused disease due to the organisms therein.
Questioner: I was really questioning about the more basic cause of disease rather than the mechanism of its transmission.
I was going back to the root of thought that created the possibility of disease.
Could you briefly tell me if I am correct in assuming the general reduction of thought over the long time on planet Earth with respect to the Law of One created a condition whereby what we call disease could develop?
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct and perceptive.
You, as questioner, begin now to penetrate the outer teachings.
The root cause in this particular society was not so much a bellicose action although there were, shall we say, tendencies, but rather the formation of a money system and a very active trading and development of those tendencies towards greed and power; thus, the enslaving of entities by other entities and the misapprehension of the Creator within each entity.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 34
Questioner: Do what we call contagious diseases play any part in this process with respect to the unmanifested self?
Ra: I am Ra. These so-called contagious diseases are those entities of second-density which offer an opportunity for this type of catalyst.
If this catalyst is unneeded, then these second-density creatures, as you would call them, do not have an effect.
In each of these generalizations you may please note that there are anomalies so that we cannot speak to every circumstance but only to the general run or way of things as you experience them.
Questioner: What part do what we call birth defects play in this process?
Ra: I am Ra. This is a portion of the programming of the mind/body/spirit complex totality manifested in the mind/body/spirit of third-density.
These defects are planned as limitations which are part of the experience intended by the entity’s totality complex.
This includes genetic predispositions, as you may call them.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 60
Questioner: In trying to understand the creative energies, it has occurred to me that I really do not understand why unusable heat is generated as our Earth moves from third into fourth density.
I know it has to do with disharmony between the vibrations of third and fourth density but why this would show up as a physical heating within the Earth is beyond me.
Can you enlighten me on that?
Ra: I am Ra. The concepts are somewhat difficult to penetrate in your language.
However, we shall attempt to speak to the subject.
If an entity is not in harmony with its circumstances it feels a burning within.
The temperature of the physical vehicle does not yet rise, only the heat of the temper or the tears, as we may describe this disharmony.
However, if an entity persists for a long period of your space/time in feeling this emotive heat and disharmony, the entire body complex will begin to resonate to this disharmony, and the disharmony will then show up as the cancer or other degenerative distortions from what you call health.
When an entire planetary system of peoples and cultures repeatedly experiences disharmony on a great scale the earth under the feet of these entities shall begin to resonate with this disharmony.
Due to the nature of the physical vehicle, disharmony shows up as a blockage of growth or an uncontrolled growth since the primary function of a mind/body/spirit complex’s bodily complex is growth and maintenance.
In the case of your planet the purpose of the planet is the maintenance of orbit and the proper location or orientation with regards to other cosmic influences.
In order to have this occurring properly the interior of your sphere is hot in your physical terms.
Thus instead of uncontrolled growth you begin to experience uncontrolled heat and its expansive consequences.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 66
Questioner: In a transition from third to fourth-density we have two other possibilities other than the type that we are experiencing now.
We have the possibility of a totally positively polarized harvest and the possibility of a totally negatively polarized harvest that I understand have occurred elsewhere in the universe many times.
When there is a totally negatively polarized harvest, the whole planet that has negatively polarized makes the transition from third to fourth-density.
Does the planet have the experience of the distortion of disease that this planet now experiences prior to that transition?
Ra: I am Ra. You are perceptive.
The negative harvest is one of intense disharmony and the planet will express this.
Questioner: The planet has a certain set of conditions in late third-density, and then the conditions are different in early fourth-density.
Could you give me an example of a negatively polarized planet and the conditions in late third-density and early fourth-density so that I can see how they change?
Ra: I am Ra. The vibrations from third to fourth-density change on a negatively oriented planet precisely as they do upon a positively oriented planet.
With fourth-density negative comes many abilities and possibilities of which you are familiar.
The fourth-density is more dense and it is far more difficult to hide the true vibrations of the mind/body/spirit complex.
This enables fourth-density negatives, as well as positives, the chance to form social memory complexes.
It enables negatively oriented entities the opportunity for a different set of parameters with which to show their power over others and to be of service to the self.
The conditions are the same as far as the vibrations are concerned.
Questioner: I was concerned about the amount of physical distortions, disease, and that sort of thing in third-density negative just before harvesting and in fourth-density negative just after harvesting or in transition.
What are the conditions of the physical problems, disease, etc. in late third-density negative?
Ra: I am Ra. Each planetary experience is unique.
The problems, shall we say, of bellicose actions are more likely to be of pressing concern to late third-density negative entities than the earth’s reactions to negativity of the planetary mind, for it is often by such warlike attitudes on a global scale that the necessary negative polarization is achieved.
As fourth-density occurs there is a new planet and new physical vehicle system gradually expressing itself and the parameters of bellicose actions become those of thought rather than manifested weapons.
Questioner: Well then is physical disease and illness as we know it on this planet rather widespread on a third-density negative planet before harvest into fourth-density negative?
Ra: I am Ra. Physical complex distortions of which you speak are likely to be less found as fourth-density negative begins to be a probable choice of harvest due to the extreme interest in the self which characterizes the harvestable third-density negative entity.
Much more care is taken of the physical body as well as much more discipline being offered to the self mentally.
This is an orientation of great self-interest and self-discipline.
There are still instances of the types of disease which are associated with the mind complex distortions of negative emotions such as anger.
However, in an harvestable entity these emotional distortions are much more likely to be used as catalyst in an expressive and destructive sense as regards the object of anger.
Questioner: I am trying to understand the way that disease and bodily distortions are generated with respect to polarities, both positive and negative.
It seems that they are generated in some way to create the split of polarization, that they have a function in creating the original polarization that occurs in third-density.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is not precisely correct.
Distortions of the bodily or mental complex are those distortions found in beings which have need of experiences which aid in polarization.
These polarizations may be those of entities which have already chosen the path or polarization to be followed.
It is more likely for positively oriented individuals to be experiencing distortions within the physical complex due to the lack of consuming interest in the self and the emphasis on service-to-others.
Moreover, in an unpolarized entity catalyst of the physical distortion nature will be generated at random.
The hopeful result is, as you say, the original choice of polarity.
Oftentimes this choice is not made but the catalyst continues to be generated.
In the negatively oriented individual the physical body is likely to be more carefully tended and the mind disciplined against physical distortion.
Questioner: This planet, to me, seems to be what I would call a cesspool of distortions.
This includes all diseases and malfunctions of the physical body in general.
It would seem to me that, on the average, this planet would be very, very high on the list if we just took the overall amount of these problems.
Am I correct in this assumption?
Ra: I am Ra. We will review previous material.
Catalyst is offered to the entity.
If it is not used by the mind complex it will then filter through to the body complex and manifest as some form of physical distortion.
The more efficient the use of catalyst, the less physical distortion to be found.
There are, in the case of those you call Wanderers, not only a congenital difficulty in dealing with the third-density vibratory patterns but also a recollection, however dim, that these distortions are not necessary or usual in the home vibration.
We over-generalize as always, for there are many cases of preincarnative decisions which result in physical or mental limitations and distortions, but we feel that you are addressing the question of widespread distortions towards misery of one form or another.
Indeed, on some third-density planetary spheres catalyst has been used more efficiently.
In the case of your planetary sphere there is much inefficient use of catalyst and, therefore, much physical distortion.
We have enough energy available for one query at this time.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 76
Questioner: I am assuming that upon entry into third density, for this planet, disease did not exist in any form. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect.
Questioner: What disease or form of disease was there and why did this exist at the beginning of the third density?
Ra: I am Ra.
Firstly, that which you speak of as disease is a functional portion the body complex which offers the body complex the opportunity to cease viability.
This is a desirable body complex function.
The second portion of the answer has to do with second-density other-selves of a microscopic, as you would call it, size which have in some forms long existed and perform their service by aiding the physical body complex in its function of ceasing viability at the appropriate space/time.
Questioner: What I am trying to understand is the difference between the plan of the Logos for these second-density entities and the generation of what I would guess to be more or less a runaway array of feedback to create various physical problems to act as catalyst in our present third-density condition.
Could you give me an indication of whether my thinking is anywhere near right on that?
Ra: I am Ra. This instrument’s physical body complex is becoming more distorted towards pain.
We shall, therefore, speak to this subject as our last full query of this working.
Your query contains some internal confusion which causes the answer to be perhaps more general than desired.
We invite refinements of the query.
The Logos planned for entities of mind/body/spirit complex to gain experience until the amount of experience was sufficient for an incarnation.
This varied only slightly from second-density entities whose mind/body complexes existed for the purpose of experiencing growth and seeking consciousness.
As the third density upon your planet proceeded,
as has been discussed, the need for the physical body complex to cease became more rapidly approached due to intensified and more rapidly gained catalyst.
This catalyst was not being properly assimilated.
Therefore, the, shall we say, lifetimes needed to be shorter that learning might continue to occur with the proper rhythm and increment.
Thus more and more opportunities have been offered as your density has progressed for disease.
May we ask if there are further brief queries before we close?
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 83
Questioner: Let’s take, then, since we are on the subject of sex, the relationship before and after the veil of disease, in this particular case venereal disease.
Was this type of disease in existence prior to the veil?
Ra: I am Ra. There has been that which is called disease, both of this type and others, before and after this great experiment.
However, since the venereal disease is in large part a function of the thought-forms of a distorted nature which are associated with sexual energy blockage the venereal disease is almost entirely the product of mind/body/spirit complexes’ interaction after the veiling.
Questioner: You mentioned that it existed in a small way prior to the veil.
What was the source of its development prior to the veiling process?
Ra: I am Ra. The source was as random as the nature of disease distortions are, at heart, in general.
Each portion of the body complex is in a state of growth at all times.
The reversal of this is seen as disease and has the benign function of ending an incarnation at the appropriate space/time nexus.
This was the nature of disease, including that which you call venereal.
Questioner: I’ll make this statement and you can correct me.
As I see the nature of the action of disease before the veil, it seems to me that the Logos had decided upon a program where an individual mind/body/spirit would continue to grow in mind and the body would be the third-density analog of this mind.
The growth would be continual unless there was an inability, for some reason, for the mind to continue along the growth patterns.
If this growth decelerated or stopped, what we call disease would then act in a way so as to eventually terminate this physical experience so that a new physical experience would be started, after a review of the entire process had taken place between incarnations.
Would you clear up my thinking on that, please?
Ra: I am Ra. Your thinking is sufficiently clear on this subject.
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 55
Session 105, October 19, 1983
Questioner: As an example I would like to take the distortion of a disease or bodily malfunction prior to the veil and compare it to that after the veil.
Let us assume that the conditions that Jim experienced with respect to his kidney malfunction had been an experience that occurred prior to the veil.
Would this experience have occurred prior to the veil?
Would it have been different?
And if so, how?
Ra: I am Ra. The anger of separation is impossible without the veil.
The lack of awareness of the body’s need for liquid is unlikely without the veil.
The decision to contemplate perfection in discipline is quite improbable without the veil.
Questioner: I would like to examine a sample, shall we say, bodily distortion prior to the veil and how it would affect the mind.
Could Ra give an example of that, please?
Ra: I am Ra. This general area has been covered.
We shall recapitulate here.
The patterns of illness, diseases, and death are a benignant demesne5 within the plan of incarnational experience.
As such, some healing would occur by decision of mind/body/spirits, and incarnations were experienced with the normal ending of illness to death, accepted as such since without the veil it is clear that the mind/body/spirit continues.
Thusly, the experiences, both good and bad, or joyful and sad, of the mind/body/spirit before veiling would be pale, without vibrancy or the keen edge of interest that such brings in the post-veiling mind/body/spirit complex.
5 demesne: In feudal law, lands held in one’s own power; A manor house and the adjoining lands in the immediate use and occupation of the owner of the estate;
The grounds belonging to any residence, or any landed estate; Any region over which sovereignty is exercised; domain. [< AF demeyne, OF demeine, demaine. Doublet of DOMAIN.]
