The Law of One, Book I, Session 17
Questioner: Is there a “best way” to meditate?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 49
Questioner: Will you expand on the positive and negative polarizations in general and how they apply to individuals and planets, etc.?
I think there is a correlation here, but I’m not sure.
Ra: I am Ra. It is correct that there is a correlation between the energy field of an entity of your nature and planetary bodies, for all material is constructed by means of the dynamic tension of the magnetic field.
The lines of force in both cases may be seen to be much like the interweaving spirals of the braided hair.
Thus positive and negative wind and interweave forming geometric relationships in the energy fields of both persons, as you would call a mind/body/spirit complex, and planets.
The negative pole
is the south pole or the lower pole.
The north or upper pole
The crisscrossing of these spiraling energies form primary, secondary, and tertiary energy centers.
You are familiar with the primary energy centers of the physical, mental, and spiritual body complex.
Secondary points of the crisscrossing of positive and negative center orientation revolve about several of your centers.
The yellow-ray center
may be seen to have secondary energy centers in elbow, in knee, and in the subtle bodies at a slight spacing from the physical vehicle at points describing diamonds about the entity’s navel area surrounding the body.
One may examine each of the energy centers for such secondary centers.
Some of your peoples work with these energy centers, and you call this acupuncture.
However, it is to be noted that there are most often anomalies in the placement of the energy centers so that the scientific precision of this practice is brought into question.
Like most scientific attempts at precision, it fails to take into account the unique qualities of each creation.
The most important concept to grasp about the energy field is that the lower or negative pole will draw the universal energy into itself from the cosmos.
Therefrom it will move upward to be met and reacted to by the positive spiraling energy moving downward from within.
The measure of an entity’s level of ray activity is the locus wherein the south pole outer energy has been met by the inner spiraling positive energy.
As an entity grows more polarized this locus will move upwards.
This phenomenon has been called by your peoples the kundalini.
However, it may better be thought of as the meeting place of cosmic and inner, shall we say, vibratory understanding.
To attempt to raise the locus of this meeting without realizing the metaphysical principles of magnetism upon which this depends is to invite great imbalance.
Questioner: What process would be the recommended process for correctly awakening the kundalini and of what value would that be?
Ra: I am Ra. The metaphor of the coiled serpent being called upwards is vastly appropriate for consideration by your peoples.
This is what you are attempting when you seek.
There are, as we have stated, great misapprehensions concerning this metaphor and the nature of pursuing its goal.
We must generalize and ask that you grasp the fact that this in effect renders far less useful that which we share.
However, as each entity is unique, generalities are our lot when communicating for your possible edification.
We have two types of energy.
We are attempting then, as entities in any true color of this octave, to move the meeting place of inner and outer natures further and further along or upward along the energy centers.
The two methods of approaching this with sensible method are first, the seating within one’s self of those experiences which are attracted to the entity through the south pole.
Each experience will need to be
seated within the individual.
As the entity grows in self-acceptance and awareness of catalyst the location of the comfortable seating of these experiences will rise to the new true color entity.
The experience, whatever it may be, will be seated in red ray and considered as to its survival content and so forth.
Each experience will be sequentially understood by the growing and seeking mind/body/spirit complex
in terms of survival, then
in terms of personal identity, then
in terms of social relations, then
in terms of universal love, then
in terms of how the experience may beget free communication, then
in terms of how the experience may be linked to universal energies, and finally
in terms of the sacramental nature of each experience.
Meanwhile the Creator lies within.
In the north pole the crown is already upon the head and the entity is potentially a god.
This energy is brought into being by the humble and trusting acceptance of this energy through meditation and contemplation of the self and of the Creator.
Where these energies meet is where the serpent will have achieved its height.
When this uncoiled energy approaches universal love and radiant being the entity is in a state whereby the harvestability of the entity comes nigh.
Questioner: Will you recommend a technique of meditation?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: Is it better, or shall I say, does it produce more useable results in meditation to leave the mind as blank as possible and let it run down, so to speak, or is it better to focus in meditation on some object or some thing for concentration?
Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last full query of this work time.
Each of the two types of meditation is useful for a particular reason.
The passive meditation
involving the clearing of the mind, the emptying of the mental jumble which is characteristic of mind complex activity among your peoples, is efficacious for those whose goal is to achieve an inner silence as a base from which to listen to the Creator.
This is an useful and helpful tool and is by far the most generally useful type of meditation as opposed to contemplation or prayer.
The type of meditation which may be called visualization
has as its goal not that which is contained in the meditation itself.
Visualization is the tool of the adept.
Those who learn to hold visual images in mind are developing an inner concentrative power that can transcend boredom and discomfort.
When this ability has become crystallized in an adept the adept may then do polarizing in consciousness without external action which can effect the planetary consciousness.
This is the reason for the existence of the so-called White Magician.
Only those wishing to pursue the conscious raising of planetary vibration will find visualization to be a particularly satisfying type of meditation.
Contemplation or the consideration in a meditative state of an inspiring image or text is extremely useful also among your peoples,
and the faculty of will called praying is also of a potentially helpful nature.
Whether it is indeed an helpful activity depends quite totally upon the intentions and objects of the one who prays.
May we ask if there are any brief queries at this time?
The Law of One, Book II, Session 50
Questioner: In the last session you made the statement that experiences are attracted into the entity through the south pole.
Could you expand on that and give us a definition of what you mean?
Ra: I am Ra. It takes some consideration to accomplish the proper perspective for grasping the sense of the above information.
The south or negative pole is one which attracts. It pulls unto itself those things magnetized to it.
So with the mind/body/spirit complex.
The in-flow of experience is of the south pole influx.
You may consider this a simplistic statement.
The only specific part of this correctness is that the red-ray or foundation energy center, being the lowest or root energy center of the physical vehicle, will have the first opportunity to react to any experience.
In this way only, you may see a physical locus of the south pole being identified with the root energy center.
In every facet of mind and body the root or foundation will be given the opportunity to function first.
What is this opportunity but survival?
This is the root possibility of response and may be found to be characteristic of the basic functions of both mind and body.
You will find this instinct the strongest, and once this is balanced much is open to the seeker.
The south pole then ceases blocking the experiential data and higher energy centers of mind and body become availed of the opportunity to use the experience drawn to it.
Questioner: Why do you say the experience is drawn to or attracted to the entity?
Ra: I am Ra. We say this due to our understanding that this is the nature of the phenomenon of experiential catalyst and its entry into the mind/body/spirit complex’s awareness.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 54
Questioner: Can you describe the energy that enters these energy centers?
Can you describe its path from its origin, its form, and its effect?
I don’t know if this is possible.
Ra: I am Ra. This is partially possible.
Questioner: Would you please do that?
Ra: The origin of all energy is the action of free will upon love.
The nature of all energy is light.
The means of its ingress into the mind/body/spirit complex is duple.
Firstly, there is
the inner light
which is Polaris of the self, the guiding star.
This is the birthright and true nature of all entities.
This energy dwells within.
The second point of ingress is the polar opposite of the North Star, shall we say, and
may be seen, if you wish to use the physical body as an analog for the magnetic field, as coming through the feet from the earth and through the lower point of the spine.
This point of ingress of the universal light energy is undifferentiated until it begins its filtering process through the energy centers.
The requirements of each center and the efficiency with which the individual has learned to tap into the inner light determine the nature of the use made by the entity of these in-streamings.
Questioner: Does experiential catalyst follow the same path?
This may be a dumb question.
Ra: I am Ra. This is not a pointless question, for catalyst and the requirements or distortions of the energy centers are two concepts linked as tightly as two strands of rope.
Questioner: You mentioned in an earlier session that the experiential catalyst was first experienced by the south pole and appraised with respect to its survival value.
That’s why I asked the question.
Would you expand on this concept?
Ra: I am Ra. We have addressed the filtering process by which in-coming energies are pulled upwards according to the distortions of each energy center and the strength of will or desire emanating from the awareness of inner light.
If we may be more specific, please query with specificity.
Questioner: I’ll make this statement which may be somewhat distorted and then let you correct it.
We have, coming through the feet and base of the spine, the total energy that the mind/body/spirit complex will receive in the way of what we call light.
Each energy center then filters out and uses a portion of this energy, red through violet. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is largely correct.
The exceptions are as follows:
The energy ingress ends with indigo.
The violet ray is a thermometer or indicator of the whole.
Questioner: As this energy is absorbed by the energy centers at some point it is not only absorbed into the being but radiates through the energy center outwardly.
I believe this begins at the blue center and also occurs in the indigo and violet? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, we would state that we had not finished answering the previous query and may thus answer both in part by stating that in the fully activated entity, only that small portion of in-streaming light needed to tune the energy center is used, the great remainder being free to be channeled and attracted upwards.
To answer your second question more fully we may say that it is correct that radiation without the necessity of response begins with blue ray although the green ray, being the great transitional ray, must be given all careful consideration, for until transfer of energy of all types has been experienced and mastered to a great extent, there will be blockages in the blue and indigo radiations.
Again, the violet emanation is, in this context, a resource from which, through indigo, intelligent infinity may be contacted.
The radiation thereof will not be violet ray but rather green, blue, or indigo depending upon the nature of the type of intelligence which infinity has brought through into discernible energy.
The green ray type of radiation in this case is the healing,
the blue ray the communication and inspiration,
the indigo that energy of the adept which has its place in faith.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 55
Questioner: Thank you.
You have stated in an earlier session that “until transfers of energy of all types have been experienced and mastered to a great extent, there will be blockages in the blue and in the indigo radiations.”
Could you explain that more fully?
Ra: I am Ra. At this space/time we have not covered the appropriate intermediate material.
Please requestion at a more appropriate space/time nexus.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 66
Questioner: Then an entity who becomes aware of his polarization with respect to service-to-others might find a paradoxical situation in the case where it was unable to fully serve because of distortions chosen to reach the understanding it has reached.
At this point it would seem that the entity who was aware of the mechanism might, through meditation, understand the necessary mental configuration for alleviating the physical distortion so that it could be of greater service-to-others.
At this particular nexus am I correct in this thinking?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct although we might note that there are often complex reasons for the programming of a distorted physical complex pattern.
In any case, meditation is always an aid to knowing the self.
Questioner: Is a vertical positioning of the spine useful or helpful in the meditative procedure?
Ra: I am Ra. It is somewhat helpful.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 93
Questioner: I’m at a loss to know the significance of the serpents that adorn the head of the entity on this drawing.
Are they of Ra and, if so, what do they stand for?
Ra: I am Ra. They are cultural in nature.
In the culture to which these images were given the serpent was the symbol of wisdom.
Indeed, to the general user of these images perhaps the most accurate connotation of this portion of the concept complexes might be the realization that the serpent is that which is powerful magically.
In the positive sense
this means that the serpent will appear at the indigo-ray site upon the body of the image figures.
When a negative connotation is intended
one may find the serpent at the solar plexus center.
Questioner: Is there any significance to the serpent?
Is there any polarity to the serpent as we experience it in this illusion?
Ra: I am Ra. We assume that you question the serpent as used in these images rather than the second-density life form which is a portion of your experience.
There is a significance to the serpent form in a culture which coexists with your own but which is not your own; that is, the serpent is symbol of that which some call the kundalini and which we have discussed in previous material.
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 51
Session 101, December 21, 1982
Questioner: Thank you.
What has caused the swelling in Jim’s body, and what can be done to heal it?
Ra: I am Ra. For the answer to this query we must begin with the consideration of the serpent, signifying wisdom.
This symbol has the value of the ease of viewing the two faces of the one who is wise.
adorns the brow indicating indigo-ray work.
by which we intend to signify expressions which effectually separate the self from the other-self, may be symbolized by poison of the fangs.
To use that which a mind/body/spirit complex has gained of wisdom for the uses of separation is to invite the fatal bite of that wisdom’s darker side.
