Friday 4/11: PLEASE NOTE: Not surprisingly, the US again refused to sign the deal to give BRICS their fair share of control of the world financial system in meetings on April 10th and 11th in Washington DC. Additionally, JP Morgan has cut off banking services for all foreign diplomats in the US. We are modifying and updating our next post in response to these major developments.
30. CAN YOU TRAIN US IN HEALING AWARENESS?
I. IN GENERAL
A. FORGIVENESS REMOVES KARMA
QUESTION: You stated that forgiveness removes karma. This includes forgiveness not only of other selves but also forgiveness of self as well. Is this correct?
RA: You are correct. Forgiveness of other-self is forgiveness of self. (B1, 73)
QUESTION: Would you define karma?
RA: Our understanding of karma is that which maybe called inertia. Those actions which are put into motion will continue. The stoppage of the inertia of action may be called forgiveness. (B2, 51)
B. DEEP ACCEPTANCE OF THE LAW OF ONE PRODUCES HEALING
RA: HEALING OCCURS WHEN A MIND/BODY/SPIRIT COMPLEX REALIZES DEEP WITHIN ITSELF, THE LAW OF ONE; THAT IS, THAT THERE IS NO DISHARMONY, NO IMPERFECTION; THAT ALL IS COMPLETE AND WHOLE AND PERFECT.
Then the intelligent infinity within this entity re-forms the illusion of the body, mind or spirit to a form congruent with the Law of One. The healer acts as energizer or catalyst for this completely individual process. (B1, 86)
II. THE PRE-REQUISITE FOR MENTAL WORK
RA: This is the most demanding part. (B1, 84)
RA: THE PREREQUISITE OF THE MENTAL WORK IS THE ABILITY TO RETAIN SILENCE OF SELF AT A STEADY STATE.
The mind must be opened like a door. The key is silence. (B1, 87)
III. THE DISCIPLINES OF THE MIND
A. RA: The polarity of your dimension must be internalized. Where you find patience, find the corresponding impatience and vice versa.
Each thought has an opposite. Identify both those things which you approve and those 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 the completeness within yourself. (B1, 87)
B. 2ND: ACCEPT THE COMPLETENESS WITHIN YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS.
RA: Accept 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 smoothes part of the many distortions that the faculty you call judgment engenders.
C. 3RD: SEE THE COMPLETENESS IN ALL OTHER ENTITIES
RA: This is like the 1st discipline but with the emphasis on your gaze outward toward the fellow entities that you meet (i.e., how you see your brother). 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 understandings, patience/impatience, and vice versa. (B1, 88)
D. THE 4TH MENTAL DISCIPLINE
RA: This one is the acceptance of the other-self polarities. (B1, 88)
E. THE 5TH MENTAL DISCIPLINE
RA: This involves observing the geographical and geometrical relationships and ratios of the mind, the other mind, the mass mind and the infinite mind. (B1, 88)
IV. THE DISCIPLINES OF THE BODY
A. BALANCE LOVE AND WISDOM
RA: In the streamings reaching your planet at this time, these understandings and disciplines have to do with the balance between love and wisdom in the use of the body in its natural functions. (B1, 84)
QUESTION: In the healing exercises concerning the body, what do you mean by the disciplines of the body in the balance between love and wisdom?
RA: There are natural bodily functions having to do wit the other-self, i.e., touching, loving, the sexual life, craving company to combat bodily loneliness. Find, in these functions, your love for yourself and also your love for the other.
Observe the love of self and the love of other self in contrast to wisdom regarding the use of natural functions. There are many fantasies and stray thoughts which may be examined in this balancing process. (B3, 74-75)
B. UNDERSTAND BOTH POLARITIES
RA: It is necessary to know your body well. How the emotions affect different parts of the body. Understand and accept the bodily polarity. The body is a creature of the mind‘s creation. It has its biases. The biological bias must be first completely understood, and then allow the opposite bias to find full expression in understanding. The simplest example is that each biological male is female, and vice versa. (B1, 88)
C. TRANSMUTE NATURAL FUNCTIONS TO SACREDNESS
RA: Imagine the body. Imagine the more dense, i.e., more obvious, aspects of the body. Proceed from there to the very finest knowledge of energy pathways which revolve and cause the body to be energized.
Understand that all natural functions of the body have all aspects from dense to fine, and can be transmuted to what you may call sacramental. (B1, 85)
V. THE THIRD AREA IS THE SPIRITUAL
A. CONTACT INTELLIGENT INFINITY
RA: In this area the first two disciplines are connected through the attainment of contact with intelligent infinity. (B1, 85)
B. INTEGRATE THE UPWARD YEARNING WITH THE DOWNPOURING OF DIVINE ENERGY
RA: Consider a magnet. It has two poles. One reaches up, the other down.
THE FUNCTION OF SPIRIT IS TO INTEGRATE THE UP-REACHING YEARNING OF THE MIND/BODY ENERGY WITH THE DOWN-POURING INSTREAMING OF INFINITE INTELLIGENCE. (B1, 85)
The spiritual complex embodies fields of force and consciousness which are the least distorted of your mind/body/spirit complex. This is the longest and most subtle part of your learning
IT IS THE WORK OF WIND AND FIRE.
THE SPIRITUAL BODY ENERGY FIELD IS A PATHWAY OR CHANNEL.
When body and mind are receptive and open, then the spirit can become a functioning shuttle or communicator from the entity's individual energy/will upwards, and from the streamings of the creative fire and wind downwards. (B1, 89)
C. REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE
RA: EACH ENTITY IS THE CREATOR.
The entity, as it becomes more and more conscious of itself gradually comes to the turning point at which it determines to seek either in service to others or in service to self. The seeker becomes the adept when it has balanced with minimal adequacy the appropriate energy centers,
red, orange, yellow, and blue, with the addition of green for the positive, thus moving into indigo work The adept then begins to do less of the preliminary or outer work having to do with function, and begins to effect the inner work which has to do with being.
AS THE ADEPT BECOMES A MORE AND MORE CONSCIOUSLY CRYSTALLIZED ENTITY IT GRADUALLY MANIFESTS MORE AND MORE OF THAT WHICH IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN SINCE BEFORE TIME; THAT IS, THE ONE INFINITE CREATOR. (B3, 192-193)
VI A SUMMARY OR OVERVIEW OF THESE DISCIPLINES
QUESTION: The disciplines of the personality are the paramount work of any who have become consciously aware of the process of evolution. Is this correct?
RA: Quite. The heart of the discipline of the personality is threefold.
(1) One, know your self.
(2) Two, accept your self.
(3) Three, become the Creator.
The 3rd step, when accomplished, renders one the most humble servant of all, transparent in personality and completely able to know and accept other-selves.
To become the Creator is to become all that there is.
THEN THERE IS NO PERSONALITY OF THE TYPE THE ADEPT HAD WHEN IT BEGINS ITS LEARNING.
As the consciousness of the indigo ray becomes more crystalline, more work may be done; more may be expressed from intelligent infinity. (B3, 181-182)
I. THE TWO BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR HEALING
A. FORGIVENESS OF OTHERS AND FORGIVENESS OF SELF
RA. You may observe the thoughts of anger becoming those cells of the physical bodily complex going out of control to become what you call cancer. (B2, 81)
QUESTION: Are you saying that cancer is quite easily healed mentally and once the entity forgives the other-self at whom he is angry, the cancer will disappear?
RA: This is partially correct. The other portion of healing has to do with forgiveness of self.
B. A GREATLY HEIGHTENED SENSE OF RESPECT FOR THE SELF
RA: Another part of healing has to do with demonstrating a greatly heightened respect for the self. This may conveniently be expressed by taking care in dietary matters. This is quite frequently a part of the healing and forgiving process.
RA: Information on dietary matters is not to be understood literally but as a link or psychological nudge for the body and the mind and the spirit. Thus it is the care and respect for the self that is the true thing of importance. (B2, 83)
II. SECONDARY TECHNIQUES
A. PHYSICAL TECHNIQUE: FASTING PURGES THE MIND OF TOXIC THOUGHT-FORMS
RA: Those entities in need of purging the self of a poison thought-form or emotion do well to follow a program of careful fasting until the destructive thought-form has been purged. The by-product of this is the ridding of the physical body of excess material.
See the value not to the body but see the body used as a link for the mind and spirit. (B2, 83) [Note: Colon hydrotherapists will all tell you that toxic, decaying food material can be stored in the large intestine for years.]
RA: The discipline or denial of the unwanted, cancerous portion as an appropriate part of the self is taken through the tree of mind down through the trunk to subconscious levels where the connection is male. Then the body, mind, and spirit, in unison, express denial of the excess or unwanted spiritual or mental material as part of the entity. All then falls away. (B2, 91)
QUESTION: Is the entity consciously programming this release and using fasting as the method of communication to itself?
RA: This is not only correct but may be taken further.
If the self is sufficiently aware of the workings of this catalyst and of the techniques of programming, it may, using only faith and concentration of the will, cause reprogramming without using fasting, dieting, or other similar bodily disciplines. (B2, 91)
[Note: This degree of adepthood is quite rare and should not be seen as an excuse to abandon healthy dietetic practice and go eat at Mc Donald‘s. It is best to combine these techniques with healthy diet.]
B. MENTAL TECHNIQUE: FOCUSED ATTENTION
(1) THERE IS ONLY ONE TECHNIQUE OF PROGRAMMING
QUESTION: You said that if the self understands sufficiently the workings of the catalyst and the techniques of programming, it may cause reprogramming through concentration of the will and the faculty of faith alone, without fasting, diet or other analogous bodily complex disciplines. What are the techniques of programming which the Higher Self uses? (B2, 98)
RA: THERE IS BUT ONE TECHNIQUE FOR THIS GROWING OR NURTURING OF WILL AND FAITH, AND THAT IS THE FOCUSING OF ATTENTION.
The attention span of those you call children is considered short. The spiritual attention span of most of your peoples is that of the child.
Thus it is a matter of wishing to become able to collect one‘s attention and hold it upon the desired programming.
This, when continued, strengthens the will. The entire activity can only occur when there exists faith that an outcome of this discipline is possible. (B2, 98)
(2) INCREASE YOUR ATTENTION SPAN THROUGH VISUALIZATION
QUESTION: What are some exercises for increasing the attention span?
RA: The visualization of a shape and color which is of personal inspirational quality to the mediator is the bean of the religious aspects of this son of visualization.
The visualization of simple shapes and colors which have no innate inspirational quality to the entity form the basis for what you may call your magical traditions. Whether you imagine the rose or a circle is not important. However, it is suggested that one or the other path be chosen in order to exercise this faculty. (B2, 98)
III. CONVENTIONAL METHODS
A. SHOULD YOU TAKE MEDICINE?
RA: THE MECHANICAL VIEW OF THE BODY HAS CREATED THE CONTINUING RAPID GROWTH OF ILL-HEALTH DUE TO THE STRONG CHEMICALS USED TO CONTROL AND HIDE BODILY DISTORTIONS. (B3, 101)
B. SHOULD YOU SEE A DOCTOR?
QUESTION: Assume that a sickness occurs within a particular entity who then has a choice of seeking allopathic aid (i.e., seeing a doctor) or experiencing the catalyst of the sickness and not seeking correction of the sickness (i.e. not seeing a doctor). Can you comment? (B3, 101)
RA: If the entity is polarized towards service-to-others, it asks
which path offers the most opportunity for service-to-others.
For the negatively polarized entities the opposite is the case.
For the unpolarized entity the considerations are random and most likely in the direction of distortion towards comfort. (B3, 101)
IV. METAPHYSICAL UNDERSTANDING OF HEALING
A. THE PATH OF THE ENERGY IN HEALING
QUESTION: Once the healer has become properly balanced and unblocked with respect to energy centers, it is possible for him to act in some way as a collector and focuser of light, collecting light through the left hand and emitting it through the right. (B3, 113)
RA: You are correct but we suggest a few adjustments. The energy brought in by the outstretched hand circulates through the various energy centers to the base of the spine, turning at the red energy center (root chakra) towards a spiral at the yellow energy center and then passing through the green energy center -- this then continuing for the 3rd spiral through the blue energy center and being sent from there through the gateway back to intelligent infinity.
It is from the green center that the healing prana moves into the polarized healing right hand and from there to the one to be healed. (B3, 113-114)
B. THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE DESCRIPTION OF HEALING
RA: The crystallized healer is a channel for intelligent energy which offers an opportunity to an entity that it might heal itself. In no case is there any other description of healing.
This is also true of the more conventional healers of your culture and if these healers could but fully realize that they are responsible only for offering the opportunity of healing, and not for the healing, many of these entities would feel an enormous load of misconceived responsibility fall from them. (B3, 116)
C. THE KEY TO HEALING IS IN THE ETHERIC BODY
RA: Healing is first done in the time/space portion (metaphysical part) of the mind/body/spirit complex, then is adopted by the form-making or etheric body, and finally is given to the space/time physical illusion for we by the physical body.
IT IS THE ADOPTION OF THE CONFIGURATION WHICH YOU CALL HEALTH BY THE ETHERIC BODY IN TIME/SPACE WHICH IS THE KEY TO PHYSICAL HEALTH, NOT ANY EVENT WHICH OCCURS IN SPACE/TIME. (B3, 118)
V. IF YOU WANT THE SICKNESS, AT ANY LEVEL, IT STAYS
RA: If the entity, at any level, desires to remain in the configuration which seems to need healing (for example, sickness), it will do so. (B3, 115)
RA: An entity may not consciously seek healing and yet subconsciously be aware of the need to experience the new set of distortions which result from healing. Similarly an entity may consciously desire healing greatly, but within the being, at some level, find some cause which makes the illness seem appropriate. (B3, 115)
JIM MCCARTY: "Pre-incarnatively chosen limitations confuse many healers who have the opinion that no disease is ever necessary. However it seems that some people choose lessons that will utilize the entire information and not just a portion of it. Thus the distortions needed to present the opportunities for these kinds of lessons are not meant to yield to healing efforts" (B5, 93)
VI. RA ABRIDGES FREE WILL BY GIVING STRONG HEALING ADVICE TO CARLA
A. THE SPIRITUAL HEALING NEEDED RE-ENFORCEMENT
QUESTION: Carla would like for me to ask if there is any problem with her kidneys?
RA: This query is more complex than its brevity would indicate. The kidneys of this instrument (i.e., Carla) is much damaged. The time/space equivalent which rules the body complex is without flaw. There was a serious question, due to psychic attack, whether the spiritual healing would endure.
THE SPIRITUAL HEALING HAS ENDURED BUT IT HAS THE NEED TO BE RE-ENFORCED BY AFFIRMATION OF THE ASCENDANCY OF THE SPIRITUAL OVER THE APPARENT OR VISIBLE EFFORTS AT HEALING. (B4, 25)
B. TAKING MEDICINE WEAKENED THE HEALING
RA: When this instrument began ingesting substances (medicine) designed to heal the kidneys in a physical sense, this instrument (Carla) was ceasing the affirmation of healing. Due to this the healing was weakened.
This is of some profound distortion and it would be well for the instrument to absorb these concepts. We ask your forgiveness for offering information which may abridge free will, but the dedication of he instrument is such that it would persevere regardless of its condition, if possible. Thusly we offer this information that it may persevere with a fuller distortion towards comfort. (B4, 25)
C. A SPIRITUAL HEALER WAS THE CATALYST
QUESTION: What was the experience that caused the healing of the time/space kidney?
RA: This experience was the healing of self by self with the catalyst of the spiritual healer whom you call Pachita. (B4, 25)
32. BALANCE CAN REMOVE THE NEED FOR CATALYSTS
I. ENCOUNTERING CATALYSTS
RA: A catalyst not used fully by the mind and spirit is given to the body. (B3, 75)
A. PAIN AS CATALYST
RA: The experience of pain is most common among your entities. The pain may be physical, but more often it is of the mental or emotional complex. In some few cases the pain is of the spiritual complex. This creates a potential for learning. The lessons to be learned almost always include patience. tolerance, and the ability for the light touch.
Very often the catalyst for emotional pain will result in the opposite, in a bitterness and impatience. In these cases there must be additional catalyst provided to after the unmanifested self more opportunities to
DISCOVER THE SELF AS ALL-SUFFICIENT CREATOR CONTAINING ALL THAT IS AND FULL OF JOY. (B2, 52)
B. SICKNESS AS CATALYST
QUESTION: Do contagious diseases play any part in this process with respect to the unmanifested self?
RA: Contagious diseases are those entities of 2nd density which offer an opportunity for this type of catalyst. If this catalyst is unneeded, then the 2nd density creatures as you would call them, do not have an effect. (B2, 52)
C. TRAUMA AS CATALYST
RA: Among your entities a large percentage of all progression has as catalyst, trauma. (B2, 55)
D. THE PURPOSE OF CATALYSTS
RA: All catalysts are designed to offer a challenge or lesson. In your density such experience may be loved and accepted or it may be controlled. These are the two paths.
When neither path is chosen, the catalyst fails in its design and the entity proceeds until some catalyst strikes it which causes it to form a bias toward acceptance and love or toward separation and control. (B2, 110)
RA: 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. (B3, 29)
E. IS CATALYST NECESSARY ONLY IF THERE IS AT LEAST A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE OF ONE ENERGY CENTER?
RA. This is not correct. Although activating or unblocking each energy center is of primary importance, so also is the refining of the balances between the energies so that the tones of vibratory being-ness coming from each energy center resonate in clarity and harmony with those from the other energy centers.
Each energy may be activated without the beauty that is possible through the appreciation of what you call the deeper personality or soul identity. (B3, 26)
QUESTION: As an analogy for activating the energy centers, anybody can pull out each string on a stringed musical instrument and release them, producing notes. But that doesn't necessarily produce music. A musician's hands can make music. Is this correct? RA: This is correct.
IN THE BALANCED INDIVIDUAL THE ENERGY LIES WAITING FOR THE HAND OF THE CREATOR TO PLUCK HARMONY. (B3, 27)
II. THE PROGRESSION OF CATALYST- FROM MENTAL TO PHYSICAL
RA: Catalyst is offered to the entity. If it is not used by the mind complex, it will then enter the body and manifest as some form of physical distortion or sickness.
THE MORE EFFICIENT THE USE OF CATALYST, THE LESS PHYSICAL SICKNESS OR DISTORTION THERE WILL BE.
On some 3rd density planetary spheres catalyst has been used more efficiently. In the case of your sphere there is much inefficient use of catalyst, and therefore much physical distortion. (B3, 124)
RA: At first people had longer lifetimes. Eventually catalysts were not being properly assimilated. Therefore lifetimes needed to be shorter. (B4, 15)
III. IF YOU RESPOND AT ALL TO THE CATALYST YOU‘RE STILL USING IT
RA: The catalyst of experience works in order for the teachings of this density to occur. However, if there is seen in the being a response, even if it is simply observed, the entity is still using the catalyst for learning.
The end result is that the catalyst is no longer needed. Thus the density is no longer needed. This is not indifference or objectivity, but a finely tuned compassion and love which sees all things as love. This seeing elicits no response due to catalytic reactions. Thus the entity is now able to become co-Creator of experiential occurrences. This is the truer balance. (B2, 94)
V. THE COMPLETELY BALANCED ENTITY
A. DOES A BALANCED ENTITY HAVE AN EMOTIONAL RESPONSE TO BEING ATTACKED?
QUESTION: Would a perfectly balanced entity feel any emotional response when attacked by the other-self?
RA: Yes, it would. The response is love. BALANCE IS NOT INDIFFERENCE BUT RATHER THE OBSERVER NOT BLINDED BY ANY FEELINGS OF SEPARATION BUT RATHER FULLY IMBUED WITH LOVE. (B2, 95)
B. ARE ANY SITUATIONS EMOTIONALLY CHARGED TO A BALANCED ENTITY?
RA: For a balanced entity no situation has an emotional charge but is simply a situation like any other in which the entity may or may not observe an opportunity to be of service.
The closer an entity comes to this attitude the closer an entity is to balance. It is not our recommendation that reactions to catalyst be repressed or suppressed unless such reactions would be a stumbling block not consonant with the law of One to an other-self. It is far, far better to allow the experience to express itself in order that the entity may then make fuller use of this catalyst. (B2, 97)
[Note: Wilcock‘s favorite paraphrased Ra quote is based on this passage: “To a perfectly balanced entity, there is no such thing as an emotionally charged situation. There are only two choices; the choice to be of service, or the choice to withdraw from the situation. Either choice is acceptable. ”]
V. RANDOM CATALYSTS OCCUR IN UNPOLARIZED ENTITIES
RA: In an unpolarized entity, catalyst of the physical distortion nature will be generated at random. The hopeful result, as you say, is the choice of polarity. Often this choice is not made, and the catalyst continues to be generated. (B3, 124)
QUESTION: Until an entity becomes consciously aware of the evolutionary process, the Logos or intelligent energy creates the potentials for an entity to gain the experience necessary for polarization. Is this correct? (B4, 155)
RA: That is correct.
VI. PHYSICAL CATALYSTS ARE LESS PROMINENT IN NEGATIVE POLARIZATION
RA: Mental and bodily distortions are found in beings which have need of experiences that aid in polarization. It is more likely for positively oriented individuals to be experiencing physical distortions due to their lack of consuming interest in the self and their emphasis in service to others.
In the negatively oriented individual the physical body is likely to be more carefully tended and the mind disciplined against physical distortion. (B3, 124)
33. THE END OF THE PHYSICAL BODY (DEATH)
RA: THE ONLY NEED AT DEATH IS THE RELEASING OF THAT ENTITY FROM ITS BODY BY THOSE AROUND IT AND THE PRAISING OF THE PROCESS BY THOSE WHO GRIEVE.
BY THESE MEANS MAY THE ONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCED PHYSICAL DEATH BE AIDED, NOT BY CAREFUL AND REPEATED RITUALS. (B3, 9)
RA: Natural death is most harmonious; the death by murder is confused and the entity needs some time/space in which to get its bearings.
DEATH BY SUICIDE CAUSES THE NECESSITY FOR MUCH HEALING WORK AND THE MAKING OF A DEDICATION TO THE 3RD DENSITY FOR THE RENEWED OPPORTUNITY OF LEARNING THE LESSONS SET BY THE HIGHER SELF. (B3, 143)
34. MENTAL ILLNESS
I. WE NOW EXPERIENCE GREEN RAY VIBRATION
QUESTION: Does the fact that the basic vibration that we experience now is green true color or 4th density account for the fact that there are many mental effects on metal objects, such as bending metal with the mind?
RA: This is not only correct but may be taken further. The great number of entities with the so-called
mental diseases is due to effect of this green ray true color upon the mental configurations - those unready mentally to face the self for the first time. (B2, 83)
II. IS THIS DIFFICULT FOR THOSE ON THE SERVICE TO SELF PATH?
QUESTION: Is it those entities on the service-to-self path who have extreme difficulty mentally with this green ray vibration?
RA: This is incorrect. It is those who have distracted themselves and failed to prepare for this transition yet who are somewhat susceptible to its influence who may be affected. (B2, 83-84)
35. CHANGING SOCIETY
RA: Those most active in attempting to remake or alter the society are those working from feelings of being correct personally or of having answers which will put power in a more correct configuration. These interactions most often concentrate upon the 2nd and 3rd energy centers. (B2, 53)
There are some few whose desires to aid society are of a green ray nature or above. These entities, however, are few due to the understanding of 4th ray that
universal love freely given is more to be desired than principles or even the rearrangement of peoples or political structures. (B2, 53)
RA: At the present space/time the conditions of well-meant and unintentional slavery are so numerous that it beggars our ability to enumerate them. (B4, 76)
[Note: The conditions in which most animals are raised for our mainstream food supply certainly is one factor that could be missed by many who read this.]
