The Law of One, Book IV, Session 41
RA I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the One Infinite Creator.
We communicate now.
I have one question of logistics to start with. I know it’s a dumb question, but I have to ask it to be sure.
There is a possibility that we may have to move from this location to a location a thousand or more miles from here in the future. Will this have any effect at all on our contact with Ra?
RA I am Ra. This is not a foolish question.
The location is meaningless, for are we not in the creation?
However, the place of the working shall be either carefully adjudged by your selves to be of the appropriate vibratory levels, or it shall be suggested that the purification of the place be enacted and dedication made through meditation before initial working.
This might entail such seemingly mundane chores as the cleansing or painting of surfaces which you may deem to be inappropriately marred.
I am familiar with the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram.
I was just wondering if this ritual was of use in preparing a place for this type of working?1
1 An explanation of the Banishing Ritual can be found in various Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn works, including as an appendix in W.E. Butler’s book The Magician, His Training, and His Work.
RA I am Ra. This is correct.
Then generally, what you’re saying is that even if we moved over a thousand miles away, if we carefully prepared a place that we found, even though it had been used by others previously, it could be made satisfactory. Is this correct?
RA I am Ra. Yes.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 95
Questioner: We would like to pick the most appropriate room for sanctifying for the Ra contact.
Is there any room that would be most appropriate that Ra could name?
Ra: I am Ra. When you have finished with your work the dwelling shall be as a virgin dwelling in the magical sense.
You may choose that portion of the dwelling that seems appropriate and once having chosen it you may then commence with the same sort of preparation of the place with which you have been familiar here in this dwelling place.
Questioner: I am assuming that the newly chosen place meets the parameters for the best contact with Ra on the exterior of the house and I would like to ask Ra at this time if there are any suggestions with respect to the exterior of the house?
Ra: I am Ra. The dwelling seems surrounded with the trees and fields of your countryside.
This is acceptable.
We suggest the general principle of preparing each part of your environment as it best suits each in the group with the beauty which each may feel to be appropriate.
There is much of blessing in the gardening and the care of surroundings, for when this is accomplished in love of the creation the second-density flowers, plants, and small animals are aware of this service and return it.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 96
Questioner: The instrument asks if the house which is to be our new location is capable of being transformed by painting and cleaning?
We don’t plan to put down all new carpets. Would cleaning the carpets that are there now be acceptable?
I want to bring this particular house up to acceptable limits so that it is neutral after we do the salting.
I have a concern only for the conditions for our work there.
The physical location isn’t that important. In fact I don’t consider that important at all.
Could Ra comment on this?
Ra: I am Ra. It is, of course, the preference of this group which is the only consideration in the situation for the contact with Ra.
The domicile in question has already been offered a small amount of blessing by this group through its presence and, as we have previously stated, each of your days spent in love, harmony, and thanksgiving will continue transforming the dwelling.
It is correct, as we have previously stated, that physical cleanliness is most important.
Therefore, the efforts shall be made to most thoroughly cleanse the dwelling.
In this regard it is to be noted that neither in the dwelling as a whole wherein you now reside or in the chamber of this working is there an absence of your dust, earth, and other detritus which is in toto called dirt.
If the intention is to clean, as much as is physically possible, the location, the requirements for physical cleanliness are fulfilled.
It is only when a lower astral entity has, shall we say, placed portions of itself in the so-called dirt that care should be taken to remove the sentient being.
These instructions we have given.
May we note that just as each entity strives in each moment to become more nearly one with the Creator but falls short, just so is physical spotlessness striven for but not achieved.
In each case the purity of intention and thoroughness of manifestation are appreciated.
The variance between the attempt and the goal is never noted and may be considered unimportant.
