24. SPIRITUAL GROWTH
I. MUCH MORE PROGRESS CAN BE MADE HERE THAN IN BETWEEN INCARNATIONS
QUESTION: Is it correct that entities can accelerate their growth much more while in the 3rd density than in between incarnations of this density?
RA: This is correct. (The reason is that one can work within the framework of the two primal distortions of the law of One.) In 3rd density each entity is free to accept, reject or ignore others about it. Yet here there are many who practice the ways of love.
If, in addition to this, an entity chooses to accept responsibility for each moment of experience, then this empowers its progress. (B1, S10, 113)
II. THE HEART OF THE MATTER
QUESTION: Is there anything of importance for spiritual growth on the service-to-others path other than knowledge of self, disciplines of personality and strengthening the will?
RA: This is technique. This is not the heart. Let us remember that we are all one. This is the great learning and teaching. In this unity lies love. In this unity lies light. This is the fundamental teaching of all planes of existence in materialization: unity, love, light and joy. The 2nd ranking lessons are in meditation and service. (B3, S52, 16)
III. WHAT ARE SOME EXERCISES TO PERFORM? (B1, S10, 114)
EXERCISE 1: REALIZE THAT THE MOMENT CONTAINS LOVE.
THAT IS THE LESSON OF THIS DENSITY.
CONSCIOUSLY SEE THAT LOVE IN AWARENESS
AND IN UNDERSTANDING DISTORTIONS.
EXERCISE 2: THE UNIVERSE IS ONE BEING. WHEN YOU VIEW ANOTHER,
SEE THE CREATOR.
EXERCISE 3: GAZE WITHIN A MIRROR.
SEE THE CREATOR.
EXERCISE 4: GAZE AT THE CREATION, WHICH LIES ABOUT THE MIND/BODY/SPIRIT OF EACH ENTITY.
SEE THE CREATOR.
The foundation for these exercises is meditation, contemplation or prayer. With this attitude these exercises can be processed. Without it, the data will not sink down into the roots of the tree mind, thus enabling and ennobling the body and touching the spirit. (B1, S10, 114)
IV. THE MYSTERY OF THE ONE
RA: Gaze at the stunning mystery of the One Infinite Creator. Behold the glory, the majesty, the mystery and the peace of oneness. Let no consideration of bird or beast, darkness or light, shape or shadow keep any which seeks from the central consideration of unity. (B4, S97, 194)
RA: (Yet) no source which is of the 3rd density will resolve all paradoxes or bring all into unity. (B4, S97, 194)
V. THE BEST SERVICE
QUESTION: What are some of the "best ways" for being of service to others?
RA: The best way of service to others is the constant attempt to seek to share the love of the Creator as it is known to the inner self. This involves self-knowledge and the ability to
OPEN THE SELF TO THE OTHER WITHOUT HESITATION AND RADIATE THAT WHICH IS THE ESSENCE, OR THE HEART. (B1, S17, 166-167)
QUESTION: What is the greatest service that our population could perform individually?
RA: There is but one service. The Law is One. The offering of self to Creator is the greatest service, the fountainhead. (B1, 43)
VI. DISTILL THE LOVE AND LIGHT IN EACH EXPERIENCE
RA: The proper role of the entity in this density is to experience all things desired and then to analyze understand and
ACCEPT ALL EXPERIENCES, DISTILLING FROM THEM THE LOVE/LIGHT WITHIN THEM. THAT WHICH IS NOT NEEDED FALLS AWAY. (B1, 169-170)
VII. BECOME AWARE OF THE OTHER AS BEING THE SAME AS YOURSELF
RA: We suggest that you attempt to become aware of the other-self as self.
Become aware of the intelligent energy expressed in nature and expressed in self-love shared when appropriate. (B1, 171)
VIII. WHY IS THERE MALE AND FEMALE?
QUESTION: Bisexual reproduction begins in 2nd density. What is the idea behind this?
RA: The 2nd density is one in which the groundwork is being laid for 3rd density work. The mechanism of reproduction capitulates in 3rd density into a vast potential for service to others and to one's self. Many types of energy transfer occur.
Those who are magnetically attracted, one to the other, have opportunities for many types of service which would be unavailable to the independent entity. (B2, 28)
QUESTION: So, the basic reason for having bisexual reproduction was to increase the opportunity of the experience of the One Creator? Is that correct?
RA: That is not merely correct but is the key to that which occurs in all densities. (B2, 28)
IX. UNLEARNED LESSONS WILL BE REPEATED
RA: If one opportunity is missed, another will appear until the student of the life experience grasps that a lesson is being offered and undertakes to learn it. (B2, 46)
X. PERPETUAL CHILDHOOD
RA: The greater preponderance of your entities find themselves in what may be considered a perpetual childhood. (B1, 188)
QUESTION: Even 4th density positive has the concept of defensive action, but above the level of 4th density the concept of defensive action is not in use. Both offensive and defensive actions occur frequently in our present density.
If an entity is polarized strongly enough in his thought in a positive sense, defensive action is not going to be necessary for him because the opportunity to apply defensive action will never originate for him. Is that correct? (B2, 47)
RA: This is unknowable. An entity able to program experiences may choose the number and the intensity of the lessons to be learned It is possible that an extremely positively oriented entity might program for itself situations testing the ability of the self to refrain from defensive action even to the point of physical death of self or other-self.
This is an intensive lesson, and it is not known what entities have programmed for themselves. We may, if we desire, read this programming. However, this is an infringement and we choose not to do so. (B2, 47)
XII. THE ROLE OF LIGHT, THE 'UPWARD' SPIRALING LIGHT
RA: The term "upward spiraling light" does not mean moving upward in the usual sense; it refers to that which reaches toward the source of love and light. (B3, 61)
QUESTIONER: I assume that from all points in space light radiates in our illusion in a 360-degree solid angle and this scoop shape with the pyramid is like a focusing mechanism. Is this correct?
RA: This is precisely correct. (B3, 61)
STATEMENT: The adept sees or visualizes the light moving downward from the crown chakra down to the feet. Ra has stated that the Creator enters from the feet and moves upward, that this spiraling light enters from the feet and moves upward. (B3, 170)
RA: The upward spiraling light developed in its path by the will, and ultimately reaches a high place of mating with the inward fire of the One Creator Even so, this is still only preparation for the work upon the mind/body/spirit which may be done by the adept. (B3, 172)
XIII. DESIRE, WILL AND POLARITY ARE THE KEYS
QUESTION: Desire and will are the important factors in this process. Is this correct?
RA: We would add one other quality. In the magical personality desire will and polarity are the keys. (B3, 172)
XIV. THE PROBLEM WITH THE EVANGELISTS’ METHODS
QUESTION: Many so-called evangelists have great desire and very great will. and possibly great polarity. But it seems that in many cases there is a lack of awareness that creates a less than effective working in the magical sense. Is this correct? (B3, 172)
RA: You are partially correct. But free will must be seen as paramount in examining the polarity of a service-to-others working.
Those entities you speak of are attempting to generate positive changes in consciousness while abridging free will. This causes the blockage of the magical nature of the working except in those cases wherein an entity freely desires to accept the working of the evangelist. (B3, 172)
V. THE ADEPT
RA: THE ADEPT IS ONE WHICH HAS FREED ITSELF MORE AND MORE FROM THE CONSTRAINTS OF THE THOUGHTS, OPINIONS AND BONDS OF OTHER SELVES.
Whether this is done for service to others or for service to self it is a necessary part of the awakening of the adept. This freedom is seen by those not free as what you would call evil or black. The magic is recognized; the nature is often not. (B4, 50)
RA: In service-to-others there is an association with the heart of all other selves and a disassociation from the illusory husks which prevent the adept (or anyone else) from correctly perceiving the self and other-selves as one. (B4, 51)
QUESTION: The positively or negatively polarized adept is building a potential to draw directly on the spirit for power, is this correct?
RA: It would be more proper to say that the adept is calling directly through the spirit to the universe for its power, for the spirit is a shuttle. (B4, 51)
XVI. DREAMS AS A TOOL FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
A. UNCONSCIOUS MIND DOESN'T USE WORDS
RA: The nature of the unconscious is of the nature of concept rather than word. (B4, 97)
B. CLUES FOR REMOVING BLOCKS
QUESTION: You have stated that dreaming, if made available to the conscious mind, will aid greatly in polarization. Could you say how it does this?
RA: Dreaming is an activity of communication through the veil between the unconscious mind and the conscious mind. In one who is blocked at two of the three lower energy centers the dreaming will aid polarization because there will be a repetition of recent catalyst, as well as deeper blockages, thereby giving the waking mind clues to the nature of these blockages. (B4, 97)
QUESTION: In remembering dreams, an individual can find specific clues to current energy center blockages and may, thereby, reduce or eliminate these blockages. Is this correct?
RA: That is correct. (B4, 99)
C. THE ADEPT’S MOST USEFUL TOOL IF THE HELP OF GUIDES IS REQUESTED
RA: Dreaming becomes the most efficient tool for polarization when three things happen:
(1) one consciously chooses the path of the adept (or spiritual seeker) and
(2) each energy center is balanced at least to a minimum degree, and
(3) one begins to open the indigo-ray (psychic) center.
If it is known by the adept that work may be done in consciousness while the so-called conscious mind rests, this adept may call upon those who guide it, and most of all, the magical personality which is the Higher Self as it moves into the sleeping mode of consciousness. (B4, 98)
D. DIRECT HEALING IN THE DREAM STATE
RA: The activity of dreaming is ant activity in which there is made a finely wrought and excellently fashioned bridge from conscious to unconscious. In this state the various distortions are healed. Continued lack of this possibility can cause serious problems. (B4, 99)
QUESTION: This portion of deep has been called REM. Is this correct? (B4, 100)
XVII. PIERCING THE VEIL: GREEN-RAY ENERGY
RA: By far the most vivid and even extravagant opportunities for piercing the veil area result of the interaction of polarized entities. (B4, 77)
QUESTION: By what process would two polarized entities attempt to penetrate the veil?
RA: The penetration of the veil has its roots in the development of green-ray activity, that all-compassionate love which demands no return. If this path is followed, the higher energy centers shall be activated and crystallized until the adept is born.
Within the adept is the potential for dismantling the veil to some extent that all may be seen again as one. The other self is the primary catalyst in this particular path to the piercing of the veil. (B4, 78)
RA: The awareness of all as Creator is that which opens the green-ray center. (B4, 82)
XVIII. REALIZATION OF THE ONE
RA: The seeker seeks the One.
THE ONE IS TO BE SOUGHT BY THE BALANCED AND SELF-ACCEPTING SELF WHO IS AWARE BOTH OF ITS APPARENT DISTORTIONS AND ITS TOTAL PERFECTION.
Resting in this balanced awareness, the entity then OPENS THE SELF to the Universe which it is. The light energy of all things may then be attracted by this intense seeking, and wherever the inner seeking meets the attracted cosmic prana, the realization of the One takes place.
The purpose of clearing each energy center is to allow that meeting place to occur at the indigo ray vibration, thus making contact with intelligent infinity and dissolving all illusions. Service to others is automatic at the released energy generated by this state of consciousness. (B3, 51)
RA: The contact with intelligent infinity is most likely to produce an unspeakable joy in the entity experiencing such contact. (B4, 53)
25. BEING TRULY HELPFUL
I. FEEDING THE HUNGRY
QUESTION: Many people try to help those who are in need, giving them food if there is hunger as there is now in the African nations, by bringing them medicine when needed. This is creating a vibration that is in harmony with green-ray (love) or 4th density but it is not balanced with the understanding of 5th density that these entities are experiencing catalysts, and
a more balanced administration of the needs of the hungry would be to provide them with the learning necessary to reach the sate of awareness of 4th density than it would be to minister to their physical needs at this time. Is this correct? (B2, 96)
RA: This is incorrect.
TO AN ENTITY WHICH IS STARVING, THE APPROPRIATE RESPONSE IS THE FEEDING OF THE BODY.
You may extrapolate from this. On the other hand, you are correct in your assumption that the green ray response is not as refined as that which has been imbued with wisdom. The
wisdom enables the entity to appreciate its contributions to the planetary consciousness by the quality of its being without regard to activity or behavior which expects results on the physical planes. (B2, 96)
II. PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP
QUESTION: What type of parent child relationship would aid in the activation of the energy centers from red to violet? (B2, 99)
RA: The appropriate teaching device of parents is the open-hearted being-ness of the parent and the total acceptance of the being-ness of the child.
There are two things that are especially important in this relationship other than the basic acceptance of the child.
(1) Firstly, the experience of whatever means the parent uses to worship and give thanksgiving to the One Infinite Creator should, if possible, be shared with the child entity on a daily basis.
(2) Second, the compassion of the parent to child may well be tempered by the use of discipline due to the understanding that the child entity may well learn the biases of service-to-others or service-to-self from the parental other-self. This is the reason that some discipline is appropriate. (B2, 99)
III. GIVING SUPPORT IN DIFFICULT TIMES
QUESTION: Can you give suggestions regarding the instrument's upcoming hospital experience?
RA: We may make one suggestion and leave the remainder with the Creator.
It is well for each to realize its self as the Creator.
Thusly each may support each including the support of self by humble love of self as Creator. (B3, 188)
26. AN IMPORTANT VARIABLE: POLARITY
I. ANALOGOUS TO ELECTRICITY
QUESTION: It seems there is an extreme potential in this polarization the same as there is in electricity. In a battery there is a positive and negative pole or terminal. The more you build the charge on either of these, the more the voltage, or potential difference, and the greater the ability to do physical work. Is this a correct analogy? (B1, 182)
RA: This is precisely correct.
QUESTION. If we have no polarity in electricity, we have no action. If we have no polarity in consciousness, we also have no action or experience. Is this correct?
RA: This is correct. The thing that is missing without polarity is the charge. The charge is provided by the individualized entity using the in-pourings and in-streamings of energy by the choices of free will. (B1, 185)
QUESTION: To make an analogy, when polarization in the atmosphere occurs to create thunderstorms, lightning, and much activity, this more vivid experience could be likened to the polarization in consciousness which creates the more vivid experience. Is this correct? (B4, 165)
RA: Given a disclaimer about the conditions producing the storm, we agree with this analogy.
II. THE TURNING POINT
RA: There is a turning point, a fulcrum which swings as an entity makes its will to service. If this will and desire is for service-to-others, the corresponding polarity will be activated.
In the circumstances of this group there are three such wills acting as one with the instrument in the central position of fidelity to service. This is as it must be for the balance of the working and the continuance of the contact.
Our vibratory complex is one-pointed in these workings and our will to serve is also of some degree of purity. This has attracted the attention of the polar opposite which you experience. (B3, 165)
III. INVOKING OF LIGHT STRENGTH
A CONFIGURATION OF FREE WILL, ONE-POINTED IN SERVICE-TO-OTHERS, ALSO HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR THE ALERTING OF A GREAT MASS OF LIGHT STRENGTH.
THIS POSITIVE LIGHT STRENGTH, HOWEVER, OPERATES ALSO UNDER FREE WILL AND MUST BE INVOKED.
We could not speak to this and shall not guide you, for the nature of this contact is such that the purity of your free will must, above all things, be preserved. (B3, 165)
RA: Those who are upon the service-to-others path may also call upon the light strength in direct proportion to the strength and purity of their will to serve. (B3, 170)
IV. SWITCHING BACK FROM NEGATIVE ORIENTATION TO POSITIVE
RA: The entity which incarnates into negative space/time will not find it possible to maintain any significant positive polarity as negativity, when pure, is a type of gravity well that pulls everything into it.
Thus the entity, while remembering its learned and preferred polarity, must needs make use of the catalyst given and recapitulate the lessons of service to self in order to build up enough polarity in order to cause the potential to occur for reversal of polarization. (B3, 154)
V. RELATION BETWEEN HARVESTABILITY AND DEGREE OF POLARIZATION
QUESTION: Is it possible to increase polarization without increasing harvestability?
RA: In the 3rd density an increase in the serving of others or the serving of self will almost inevitably increase the ability of an entity to enjoy a higher intensity of light. Thus it is almost impossible to polarize without increasing harvestability in 3rd density.
In the 5th density harvest, polarization has very little to do with harvestability. (B3, 156)
RA The lower energy pole (root chakra) will draw the universal energy into itself from the cosmos. Then 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 where the south pole outer energy has been met by the inner spiraling positive energy. As the entity grows more polarized this locus will move upward. Your peoples call this kundalini. It is the meeting place of cosmic and inner vibratory understanding. (B2, 125)
RA: The metaphor of the coiled serpent being called upwards is very appropriate. We are attempting then, as entities of any true color of this octave, to move the meeting place of inner and outer natures further upward along the energy centers. One method of approach is this:
Seat within ones self of those experiences which are attracted to the entity through the south pole (root chakra).
EACH EXPERIENCE WILL NEED TO BE OBSERVED, EXPERIENCED, BALANCED, ACCEPTED AND SEATED WITHIN THE INDIVIDUAL.
As the individual 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, etc. Each experience will be sequentially understood by the seeker in terms of:
1. survival (first density) then in terms of
2. personal identity, (second density) then in terms of
3. social relations, (third density) then in terms of
4. universal love, (fourth density) then in terms of
5. how the experience may be linked to universal energies, (fifth and
6. sixth density) and finally in terms of
7. the sacramental nature of each experience (seventh density.) Meanwhile the Creator lies within.
In the north pole the crown is already on the head and the entity is potentially a god. The energy is brought into being by the humble and trusting acceptance of this energy through meditation and contemplation of the self and the Creator. where these energies meet is where the serpent will have achieved its height. (B2, 125-126)
II. TWO OTHER TYPES OF MEDITATION
QUESTION: In meditation is it best to leave the mind as blank as possible and let it run down or is it better to focus on some object for concentration? (B2, 126)
RA: Each type is useful for a particular reason. (B2, 127)
A. QUIETING THE MIND
RA: The passive mediation involving clearing the mind, the emptying of the mental jumble, is useful for those who wish to achieve an inner silence as a base from which to listen to the Creator. (B2, 127)
B. VISUALIZATION = THE TOOL OF THE ADEPT
RA: The other type of meditation which may be called visualization has a different goal. It 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 the ability has become crystallized, one can effect planetary consciousness.
Only those wishing to pursue the conscious raising of planetary consciousness will find visualization particularly satisfying. (B2, 127)
RA: The key is first silence, and secondly, singleness of thought. Thusly a visualization which can be held steady to the inward eye for several of your minutes will signal the adept’s increase in singleness of thought. This is done for the purpose of transmuting planetary harvestability. (B2, 130)
III. THE MOST POWERFUL CONNECTION
RA: When the positive adept touches intelligent infinity from within, this is the most powerful of connections. The adepts become living channels for love and light and are able to channel this radiance directly into the planet's web of energy nexi (or focal points.) The ritual will always end in praise and thanksgiving and the release of this energy into the planetary whole. (B2, 131)
IV. SHOULD THE SPINE BE VERTICAL?
QUESTION: Is a vertical positioning of the spine useful or helpful in the meditative procedure?
RA: It is somewhat helpful. (B3, 119)
QUESTION: Is there some way to help an entity to reach 4th density level in these last days?
RA: It is impossible to help another being directly. It is only possible to make catalyst available in whatever form, the most important being the radiation of realization of oneness with the Creator from the self, less important being information such as we share with you. We cannot offer short cuts to enlightenment. Enlightenment is of the moment, an opening to intelligent infinity. It can only be accomplished by the self, for the self. Another self cannot teach enlightenment, but only teach/learn information, inspiration, or a sharing of love, of mystery, of the unknown that makes the other-self reach out and begin the seeking process. (B1, 161-162)
29. JESUS, AN ENLIGHTENED HEALER
I. JESUS CAME FROM THE HIGHEST PART OF THE 4TH DENSITY
RA: The entity Jesus was a member of 4th density of the highest level of that sub-octave. He desired to enter planetary service in order to share the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible.
This entity could have gone onto the 5th density but chose instead to return to 3rd density for this particular mission. (B1, 162)
II. THE ORION GROUP OPPOSED HIM
QUESTION: When Jesus incarnated was there an attempt by the Orion group to discredit him?
RA: This is correct. They built on negative information already present given by the one your peoples call "Yahweh”. This led Judas to believe that Jesus, if pushed into a corner, could be made to see the wisdom of using the power of intelligent infinity to rule others. This resulted in the death of Jesus.
III. WHY WAS JESUS SUCH A GOOD HEALER?
QUESTION: If Jesus was 4th density and there are Wanderers on the planet today who came from 5th and 6th density, what made Jesus such a good healer and could these 5th and 6th density beings here now do the same? (B1, 164)
RA: Those who heal may be of any density which has the consciousness of spirit (i.e., 4th through 7th). The gate to intelligent infinity can only be opened when an understanding of the in-streamings of intelligent energy are opened to the healer.
True healing is simply the radiance of the self causing an environment in which a catalyst can occur to cause the recognition of the self, by the self. (B1, 164)
Jesus first discovered his ability to penetrate intelligent infinity when he became angry at a playmate who was fataly wounded by Jesus's touch. Jesus determined to discover how to use this energy for the good, not for the negative.
Jesus was extremely positively polarized and remembered more than most Wanderers do.
He was galvanized by this experience and he left his home when he was 13.5 years old and walked to many other places seeking further information. This went on until he was 25, when he returned home.
When he became able to integrate and synthesize all experiences, he began to speak to other-selves. He was absolved karmically of the destruction of the otherself when he forgave those who put him to death. In forgiveness lies the stoppage of the wheel of action, of what you call karma. (B1, 164-165)
IV. NOW JESUS IS IN 5TH DENSITY
QUESTION: In what density is Jesus now?
RA: This entity studies now the lessons of the wisdom vibration, the 5th density, also called the light vibration. (B1, 165)
V. THE CHOICE TO BE A MARTYR
RA: When Jesus decided to return to the location called Jerusalem for the holy days, he turned from work mixing love and wisdom and embraced martyrdom which is the work of love without wisdom. (B3, 185)
RA: This entity (Jesus) is aware of certain over-balances towards love, even to martyrdom but has not yet, to any significant degree, balanced these distortions. We do not imply that this course of unbridled compassion has any fault but affirm its perfection.
It is an example of love which has served as beacon to many. For those who seek further, the consequences of martyrdom must be considered, for in martyrdom lies the end of the opportunity, in the density of the martyr, to offer light and love. Each entity must seek its deepest path. (B3, 186)
RA: Jesus incarnated with the plan of martyrdom. There is no wisdom in this plan but rather understanding and compassion extended to its fullest perfection. (B4, 82)
