The Law of One, Book I, Session 9
QUESTIONER Is it possible for you to tell us of anything in our past incarnations, our past experiences before this incarnation?
RA I am Ra. It is possible.
However, such information as this is carefully guarded by your mind/body/spirit being totality so that your present space/time experiences will be undiluted.
Let us scan for harmless material for your beingness.
I am, in the distortion of desire for your freedom from preconception, able to speak only generally.
There have been several times when this group worked and dwelt together.
The relationships varied.
There is balanced karma, as you call it; each thus the teacher of each.
The work has involved healing, understanding the uses of the earth energy, and work in aid of civilizations which called, just as your sphere has done, and we have come.
This ends the material which we consider harmless.
QUESTIONER The healing exercises that you gave to us are of such a nature that it is best to concentrate on a particular exercise at a time.
I would like to ask at this time what exercise I should concentrate on.
Possibly a little exercise change . . . should concentrate on [inaudible], say tonight?
RA I am Ra.
Again, to direct your judgment is an intrusion upon your space/time-continuum distortion called future.
To speak of past or present within our distortion/judgment limits is acceptable.
To guide rather than teach/learn is not acceptable to our distortion in regards to teach/learning.
We instead can suggest a process whereby each chooses the first of the exercises given in the order in which we gave them, which you, in your discernment, feel is not fully appreciated by your mind/body/spirit complex.
This is the proper choice—building from the foundation, making sure the ground is good for the building.
We have assessed for you the intensity of this effort in terms of energy expended.
You will take this in mind and be patient, for we have not given a short or easy program of consciousness learn/teaching.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 50
Questioner: Could you give an example of how an entity sets up a condition for attracting a particular experiential catalyst and how that catalyst then is provided or is learned.
Ra: I am Ra. Such an example may be given.
Questioner: Will you give that?
Ra: I am Ra. We paused to scan (name’s) consciousness to use its experiential catalyst as example.
We may proceed.
This is one instance and extrapolation may be made to other entities which are aware of the process of evolution.
This entity chose, before incarnation, the means whereby catalyst had great probability of being obtained.
This entity desired the process of expressing love and light without expecting any return.
This entity programmed also to endeavor to accomplish spiritual work and to comfort itself with companionship in the doing of this work.
Agreements were made prior to incarnation;
with the so-called parents and siblings of this entity.
This provided the experiential catalyst for the situation of offering radiance of being without expectation of return.
The second program
involved agreements with several entities.
These agreements provided and will provide, in your time/space and space/time continuum, opportunities for the experiential catalyst of work and comradeship.
There are events which were part of a program for this entity only in that they were possibility/probability vortices having to do with your societal culture.
These events include
the nature of the living or standard of living,
the type of relationships entered into in your legal framework, and
the social climate during the incarnation.
The incarnation was understood to be one which would take place at harvest.
These givens, shall we say, apply to millions of your peoples.
Those aware of evolution and desirous in the very extreme of attaining the heart of love and the radiance which gives understanding no matter what the lessons programmed:
they have to do with other-selves, not with events:
they have to do with giving, not receiving, for the lessons of love are of this nature both for positive and negative.
Those negatively harvestable
will be found at this time endeavoring to share their love of self.
There are those whose lessons are more random
due to their present inability to comprehend the nature and mechanism of the evolution of mind, body, and spirit.
Of these we may say that the process is guarded by those who never cease their watchful expectation of being of service.
There is no entity without help, either through self-awareness of the unity of creation or through guardians of the self which protect the less sophisticated mind/body/spirit from any permanent separation from unity while the lessons of your density continue.
Questioner: Could you give an example of negative polarization sharing love of self?
It would seem to me that that would deplete negative polarization.
Could you expand on the concept?
Ra: I am Ra. We may not use examples of known beings due to the infringement this would cause.
Thus we must be general.
The negatively oriented being
will be one who feels that it has found power that gives meaning to its existence precisely as the positive polarization does feel.
This negative entity will strive to offer these understandings to otherselves, most usually by the process of forming the elite, the disciples, and teaching the need and rightness of the enslavement of other-selves for their own good.
These other-selves are conceived to be dependent upon the self and in need of the guidance and the wisdom of the self.
Questioner: Can you expand on the concept which is that it is necessary for an entity, during incarnation in the physical as we know it, to become polarized or interact properly with other entities and why this isn’t possible in between incarnations when the entity is aware of what he wants to do.
Why must he come into an incarnation and lose conscious memory of what he wants to do and then act in a way in which he hopes to act?
Ra: I am Ra.
Let us give the example of the man who sees all the poker hands.
He then knows the game.
It is but child’s play to gamble, for it is no risk.
The other hands are known.
The possibilities are known and the hand will be played correctly but with no interest.
In time/space and in the true color green density,
the hands of all are open to the eye.
The thoughts, the feelings, the troubles, all these may be seen.
There is no deception and no desire for deception.
Thus much may be accomplished in harmony but the mind/body/spirit gains little polarity from this interaction.
Let us re-examine this metaphor and multiply it into
the longest poker game you can imagine, a lifetime.
The cards are
They are dealt and re-dealt and re-dealt continuously.
You may, during this incarnation begin—and we stress begin—to know your own cards.
You may begin to find the love within you.
You may begin to balance your pleasure, your limitations, etc.
However, your only indication of other-selves’ cards is to look into the eyes.
You cannot remember your hand, their hands, perhaps even the rules of this game.
This game can only be won by those who lose their cards in the melting influence of love, can only be won by those who lay their pleasures, their limitations, their all upon the table face up and say inwardly:
“All, all of you players, each other-self, whatever your hand, I love you.”
This is the game:
to balance, and
to open the self in love.
This cannot be done without the forgetting, for it would carry no weight in the life of the mind/body/spirit being-ness totality.
Is there a brief query before we leave this instrument?
The Law of One, Book III, Session 54
Questioner: Thank you.
It bears weight to my own way of thinking also. I appreciate what you have told me.
Now, I would like to then consider the origin of catalyst.
First we have the condition of mind/body/spirit complex which, as a function of the first distortion, has reached a condition of blockage or partial blockage of one or more energy centers.
I will assume that catalyst is necessary only if there is at least partial blockage of one energy center.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: Could you tell me why?
Ra: I am Ra. While it is a primary priority to activate or unblock each energy center, it is also a primary priority at that point to begin to refine the balances between the energies so that each tone of the chord of total vibratory being-ness resonates in clarity, tune, and harmony with each other energy.
This balancing, tuning, and harmonizing of the self is most central to the more advanced or adept mind/body/spirit complex.
Each energy may be activated without
the beauty that is possible through the disciplines and appreciations of personal energies or what you might call the deeper personality or soul identity.
Questioner: Let me make an analogy that I have just thought of.
A sevenstringed musical instrument may be played by deflecting each string a full deflection and releasing it producing notes. instead of producing the notes this way the individual creative personality could deflect each string the proper amount in the proper sequence producing music. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
In the balanced individual the energies lie waiting for the hand of the Creator to pluck harmony.
Questioner: I would like then to trace the evolution of catalyst upon the mind/body/spirit complexes and how it comes into use and is fully used to create this tuning.
I assume that the sub-Logos that formed our tiny part of the creation using the intelligence of the Logos of which it is a part, provides the base catalyst that will act upon mind/body complexes and mind/body/spirit complexes before they have reached a state of development where they can begin to program their own catalyst. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct.
offers the catalyst at the lower levels of energy,
the first triad;
these have to do with the survival of the physical complex.
The higher centers gain catalyst from the biases of the mind/body/spirit complex itself in response to all random and directed experiences.
Thus the less developed entity
will perceive the catalyst about it in terms of survival of the physical complex with the distortions which are preferred.
The more conscious entity being
conscious of the catalytic process will begin to transform the catalyst offered by the sub-Logos into catalyst which may act upon the higher energy nexi.
Thus the sub-Logos can offer only a basic skeleton, shall we say, of catalyst.
The muscles and flesh having to do with the, shall we say, survival of wisdom, love, compassion, and service are brought about by the action of the mind/body/spirit complex on basic catalyst so as to create a more complex catalyst which may in turn be used to form distortions within these higher energy centers.
The more advanced the entity,
the more tenuous the connection between the sub-Logos and the perceived catalyst until, finally, all catalyst is chosen, generated, and manufactured by the self, for the self.
Questioner: Which entities incarnate at this time on this planet would be in that category of manufacturing all of their catalyst?
Ra: I am Ra. We find your query indeterminate but can respond that the number of those which have mastered outer catalyst completely is quite small.
Most of those harvestable at this space/time nexus have partial control over the outer illusion and are using the outer catalyst to work upon some bias which is not yet in balance.
Questioner: In the case of service-to-self polarization, what type of catalyst would entities following this path program when they reach the level of programming their own catalyst?
Ra: I am Ra.
The negatively oriented entity
will program for maximal separation from and control over all those things and conscious entities which it perceives as being other than the self.
Questioner: A positively oriented entity may select a certain narrow path of thinking and activities during an incarnation and program conditions that would create physical pain if this were not followed.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Would a negatively oriented entity do anything like this?
Could you give me an example?
Ra: I am Ra.
A negatively oriented individual mind/body/spirit complex
will ordinarily program for wealth, ease of existence, and the utmost opportunity for power. Thus many negative entities burst with the physical complex distortion you call health.
However, a negatively oriented entity may choose a painful condition in order to improve the distortion toward the so-called negative emotive mentations such as anger, hatred, and frustration.
Such an entity may use an entire incarnative experience honing a blunt edge of hatred or anger so that it may polarize more towards the negative or separated pole.
Questioner: Prior to incarnation, as an entity becomes more aware of the process of evolution and has selected a path whether it be positive or negative, at some point the entity becomes aware of what it wants to do with respect to unblocking and balancing its energy centers.
At that point it is able to program for the life experience those catalytic experiences that will aid it in its process of unblocking and balancing.
Is that correct?
Ra: I am Ra. That is correct.
Questioner: The purpose then, of what we call the incarnate physical state, seems to be wholly or almost wholly that of experiencing the programmed catalyst and then evolving as a function of that catalyst. Is that correct?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall restate for clarity the purpose of incarnative existence is evolution of mind, body, and spirit.
In order to do this it is not strictly necessary to have catalyst.
However, without catalyst the desire to evolve and the faith in the process do not normally manifest and thus evolution occurs not.
Therefore, catalyst is programmed and the program is designed for the mind/body/spirit complex for its unique requirements.
Thus it is desirable that a mind/body/spirit complex be aware of and hearken to the voice of its experiential catalyst, gleaning from it that which it incarnated to glean.
Questioner: Then it seems that those upon the positive path as opposed to those on the negative path would have precisely the reciprocal objective in the first three rays; red, orange, and yellow.
Each path would be attempting to utilize the rays in precisely the opposite manners. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. It is partially and even substantially correct.
There is an energy in each of the centers needed to keep the mind/body/spirit complex, which is the vehicle for experience, in correct conformation and composition.
Both negative and positive entities do well to reserve this small portion of each center for the maintenance of the integrity of the mind/body/spirit complex.
After this point, however, it is correct that
will use the three lower centers for separation from and control over others by sexual means, by personal assertion, and by action in your societies.
the positively oriented entity
will be transmuting strong red-ray sexual energy into green-ray energy transfers and
radiation in blue and indigo and will be similarly transmuting selfhood and
place in society into energy transfer situations in which the entity may merge with and serve others and
then, finally, radiate unto others without expecting any transfer in return.
