RA, Fragment 10 -
Session 21, February 10, 1981
Jim: As we were preparing to welcome Dr. Puharich into our circle of
working with Ra, we were reminded once again of the prerequisite of
the tuning in the personal life that was necessary for all of those
involved in the contact.
Carla: In the event, Andrija never visited us here in Kentucky. But
it is worth noting that Ra frequently did respond to our questions
by invoking the law of confusion. Those of Ra felt that the primary
importance in personal ethics of allowing people to do their own
learning, make their own mistakes, cannot be overemphasized.
Session 21, February 10, 1981
Questioner: Andrija Puharich will be visiting later this month. Can
he read the unpublished healing material?
Ra: I am Ra. The entity of whom you speak has a knowledge of this
material in its conscious memory in somewhat altered form.
Therefore, it is harmless to allow this entity to become acquainted
with this material. However, we request the mind/body/spirit
complex, Henry, be sufficiently prepared by means of meditation,
contemplation, or prayer before entering these workings. At present,
as we have said before, this mind/body/spirit complex is not of
proper vibrational distortion.
Questioner: I had already determined to exclude him from these
workings. I had only determined to let him read the material. The
only other thing that I have noticed within the material as it
exists now there is a certain statement that will allow him to
understand who I believe Spectra really was. It seems to be my duty
to remove this from his knowledge to preserve the same free will
that you attempted to preserve by not naming the origin of the
Spectra contact in Israel. Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is a matter for your discretion.
Questioner: That’s what I thought you’d say.
RA, Fragment 11
Session 22, February 10, 1981
Jim: Most of the personal information from Session 22 is
self-explanatory. The prayer that Ra speaks of in relation to Carla
is the Prayer of St. Francis which Carla has used as her own
personal tuning mechanism since she began channeling in 1974. It
further refines the tuning done by the support group and is always
prayed mentally before any session, whether telepathic or trance.
The limitations which Ra speaks of in the second answer refers to
Carla’s rheumatoid arthritis which was apparently chosen before the
incarnation to provide an inner focus for her meditative work rather
than allow the ease of outer expression that might have dissipated
the inner orientation. Thus not all disabilities are meant to yield
to even the best efforts of healers, and when such a disability does
not respond to any kind of healing effort, one may begin to consider
what opportunities for learning and service are opened up by the
disability. Ra even mentioned in the last sentence that her
acceptance of her disabilities and limitations would ease the amount
of pain that she suffered because of them.
Carla: It was distinctly odd to be going about and walking into
aromas which had no overt origin. It seemed to me throughout this
time that I was being more and more sensitized, and less and less
vibrating with my humanhood. I feel sure that the constant weight
loss added to this Alice-in-Wonderland feeling. To the present day,
I continue to have a very sensitized physical vehicle. However, my
formerly tiny body has grown from size pre-teen 5/8 to its present
position athwart 14/16, a weight gain of double the lightest weight
reached during the contact. Just for a feel for where “normal” is
for me, I used to weigh between 115and 120, year after year. I
looked quite normal at that weight. It’s been interesting to feel
the different weights I have been, to live with a more or less bulky
vehicle. One feels stronger, the heavier one is. I was surprised at
this, figuring that lighter weights would make one feel more toned
and vital. It makes it easier to understand why we in America so
often allow ourselves to eat to the point of obesity. It feels good!
One doubts that it is a life-lengthening thing, however!
The pre-incarnative choice which I made to have a body that would
limit what I could do is one I have taken a long time to appreciate.
It is frustrating at first not to be able to do the work one’s
trained to do. I loved being a librarian, I enjoyed researching for
Don. When I could no longer work in these ways, I was profoundly
puzzled and not a little upset. But then quiet years taught me so
much. I learned the open heart although my body was declining; I
found hope and faith although the physical picture grew steadily
worse. After Donald died, I came close to dying too, and in 1992,
when at last I was able to turn the boat around, I felt the grip of
death loosen and fall away.
My present experience is of living in a barely-working physical
vehicle. Taking no less than seven medications, I walk the razor’s
edge between doing too much and not doing enough. The one thing that
has never changed throughout this experience is my dedication to
helping the Wanderers of this planet. All the various skills that I
have had to give up have their place in my work with people who are
having trouble with their spiritual path, and so I feel fully useful
at last. And yet I know that we are all most useful, not by what we
do or say, but in the quality of our being.
Session 22, February 10, 1981
Questioner: The instrument would like to ask a couple of questions
of you. The instrument would like to know why she smells the incense
at various times during the day at various places?
Ra: I am Ra. This instrument has spent a lifetime in dedication to
service. This has brought this instrument to this nexus in
space/time with the conscious and unconscious distortion towards
service, with the further conscious distortion towards service by
communication. Each time, as you would put it, that we perform this
working our social memory complex vibrational distortion meshes more
firmly with this instrument’s unconscious distortions towards
service. Thus we are becoming a part of this instrument’s vibratory
complex and it a part of ours. This occurs upon the unconscious
level, the level whereby the mind has gone down through to the roots
of consciousness which you may call cosmic. This instrument is not
consciously aware of this slow changing of the meshing vibratory
complex. However, as the dedication on both levels continues, and
the workings continue, there are signals sent from the unconscious
in a symbolic manner. Because this instrument is extremely keen in
its sense of smell this association takes place unconsciously, and
the thought-form of this odor is witnessed by the entity.
Questioner: Secondly, she would like to know why she feels more
healthy now that she has begun these sessions and feels more healthy
as time goes on?
Ra: I am Ra. This is a function of the free will of the entity. This
entity has, for many of your years, prayed a certain set of sound
vibration complexes before opening to communication. Before the
trance state was achieved this prayer remained within the conscious
portion of the mind complex and, though helpful, was not as
effective as the consequence of this prayer, as you would call this
vibrational sound complex, which then goes directly into the
unconscious level, thus more critically affecting the communication
from the spiritual complex. Also, this entity has begun, due to this
working, to accept certain limitations which it placed upon itself
in order to set the stage for services such as it now performs. This
also is an aid to re-aligning the distortions of the physical
complex with regard to pain.
RA, Fragment 12
Session 23, February 11, 1981
Jim: Dr. Puharich never did visit us during the Ra contact, so all
of our questions about how he should prepare for joining the contact
were only for our information. His strong desire to solve riddles
and puzzles and his desire to prove spiritual truth would have made
it difficult for him to become a part of our circle, since it was
supported by the opposite mental attitude, faith.
Carla: Once one starts watching for synchronicities, one can find
many a book, movie, or any other object or event bringing repeated
messages and reminders of our path. So often, Jim and I will be
discussing an issue only to find that for the next day or two, we
receive confirmations meaningful only to us.
And I do think that many wanderers here are making today’s movies
and songs. One has only to listen to the wonderful words to current
songs, sung by people as diverse as Arlo Guthrie and Donavon, Black
Oak Arkansas and Earth, Wind and Fire, the Rolling Stones … the list
is as long as my legs! We have wonderful company, we who wander here
Session 23, February 11, 1981
Questioner: I can’t answer this question but I will ask it anyway
since we are in the area that I think that this occurred in. I feel
this is somewhat of a duty to ask this question because Henry
Puharich will be visiting us here later this month. Was this entity
involved in any of these times of which you have just spoken?
Ra: I am Ra. You are quite correct in your assumption that we can
speak in no way concerning the entity Henry. If you will consider
this entity’s distortions with regard to what you call “proof” you
will understand/grasp our predicament.
Questioner: I had assumed before I asked the question that that
would be the answer. I only asked it for his benefit because he
wished for me to. This may be a dumb question. There is a movie
called “Battle Beyond the Stars.” I don’t know if you are familiar
with it or not. I guess you are. It just seemed to have what you are
telling us included in the script. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This particular creation of your entities had some
distortions of the Law of One and its scenario upon your physical
plane. This is correct.
RA, Fragment 13
Session 24, February 15, 1981
Jim: The following information refers to two of the most widely
rumored events in Ufology in this country. The first refers to the
supposed face-to-face meeting between extraterrestrials and then
President Dwight D. Eisenhower and some senior military staff at
Edwards Air Force Base in California in February, 1954. The second
incident refers to the supposed crash of a UFO outside of Roswell,
NM, in which the ufonauts on board supposedly died. It is further
rumored that their bodies were stored in Hangar #18 at Wright
Patterson Air Base in Ohio. Once again we encountered the temptation
to pursue information that seemed on the surface to be extremely
interesting but which in truth would yield little or no information
which might aid in the evolution of mind, body, or spirit. And we
would have lost the Ra contact because Ra’s “narrow band contact”
was focused only on aiding our evolution and not on revealing the
transient intricacies of how groups play games in this illusion.
Carla: In 1962, when I joined with Donald to help make up the
initial meditation group which grew into L/L Research, there were
several rumors being bruited about. Supposedly, the government knew
all about UFOs, had had contact. There were alleged conspiracies
that various sources warned the public about. To this day, there has
continued a steady stream of such prophecies and doomsday warnings
of all kinds. Only the dates of Armageddon have changed, usually
predicting doom within the next two or three years.
It is not that I do not think UFOs are communicating with our
government. They might be. Certainly they are here; the landing
trace cases alone prove that something that makes dents in the
ground is visiting us, and the many witnesses and abductees create a
comprehensive picture of human-alien contact that is undeniable. It
is that I feel that the real treasure the UFO entities have brought
us are those of the spirit, not those of this world. Whatever the
physical reality of UFOs and governmental doings, they remain part
of the transient world picture: part of this heavy illusion. But the
messages have a metaphysical content that 10,000 years would not
make out of date or less meaningful. So I tend to respond to
people’s questions about such highjinks as these with a redirection,
back from phenomena to metaphysical truth.
Session 24, February 15, 1981
Questioner: One thing that has been bothering me that I was just
reading about is not too important, but I would really be interested
in knowing if Dwight Eisenhower met with either the Confederation or
the Orion group in the 1950s?
Ra: I am Ra. The one of which you speak met with thought-forms which
are indistinguishable from third density. This was a test. We, the
Confederation, wished to see what would occur if this extremely
positively oriented and simple congenial person with no significant
distortion towards power happened across peaceful information and
the possibilities which might append therefrom. We discovered that
this entity did not feel that those under his care could deal with
the concepts of other beings and other philosophies. Thus an
agreement reached then allowed him to go his way, ourselves to do
likewise; and a very quiet campaign, as we have heard you call it,
be continued alerting your peoples to our presence gradually. Events
have overtaken this plan. Is there any short query before we close?
Questioner: Another question with that is: was there a crashed
spaceship with small bodies now stored in our military
Ra: I am Ra. We do not wish to infringe upon your future. Gave we
you this information, we might be giving you more than you could
appropriately deal with in the space/time nexus of your present
somewhat muddled configuration of military and intelligence thought.
Therefore, we shall withhold this information.
RA, Fragment 14
Session 25, February 16, 1981
Jim: The following information gave us some insight into how one’s
choices can be used in either the positive or the negative sense
even when there is the seeming interference of negative entities in
the manner of what many light workers call psychic attack and what
we came to call psychic greetings. We chose the term greeting to
emphasize that there does not have to be a negative experience on
the part of the one who is greeted and that the experience that the
one who is greeted actually has is in direct proportion to how that
entity looks at the situation. If one wishes to see such a greeting
as a difficult attack, then that becomes the experience. One can,
however, also choose to see the Creator in all entities and events
and can praise and seek the light within any situation, and then
that will tend to become the experience.
When this latter choice is made the psychic greeting becomes a great
blessing in that it presents to the one who is greeted an intensive
opportunity to see the one Creator where it may be more difficult to
see and which, when accomplished, develops a great deal more
spiritual strength than may normally be developed without the
negative entity’s aid in pointing out the weaker areas of our
magical personalities. Psychic greetings can only be offered by
negative entities’ enhancing our own free will choices that are
distorted towards service-to-self thought and behavior. Our poor
choices, usually reflecting a lack of love towards another or the
self, get magnified by the negative entity and bleed away our
efforts to seek the light and serve others until we are able to
balance the situation with love, acceptance, compassion, tolerance,
and the light touch. This is why Jesus said to “Resist not evil.” To
resist and fight is to see someone or something as other than the
self, as other than the one Creator. That is the negative path. The
positive path sees and loves all as the self and as the One.
Carla: The work that was perforce mine during this time of psychic
greeting was, as Jim pointed out, very helpful in focusing my will
and attention. I remember feeling tremendously uplifted and held in
safe hands through all of the episodes. The key was the surrender to
seeing one’s own dark side. I think Dion Fortune’s description of
how to deal with a vampiric entity, in that case a wolf, still to be
the most direct example of the understanding needed to move through
such times. This wise soul had a wolf appearing at her bed, during
training in white western ritual magic. The solution was to draw the
wolf directly into the breast, loving it and accepting it as self.
Against fearless love, the powers of negation and death are
helpless, and melt away.
I think those of Ra were very careful of our group, compared to some
sources, who did not show much concern that they were wearing the
instrument out. Advice such as was given for me could well apply to
anyone who must husband one’s energy.
Session 25, February 16, 1981
Questioner: What cause or complex of causes has led to the
instrument’s chest cold, as it is called?
Ra: I am Ra. This distortion towards illness was caused by the free
will of the instrument in accepting a chemical substance which you
call LSD. This was carefully planned by those entities which do not
desire this instrument to remain viable. The substance has within it
the facility of removing large stores of vital energy from the
ingestor. The first hope of the Orion entity which arranged this
opportunity was that this instrument would become less polarized
towards what you call the positive. Due to conscious efforts upon
the part of this instrument, using the substance as a programmer for
service to others and for thankfulness, this instrument was spared
this distortion and there was no result satisfactory to the Orion
The second hope lay in the possible misuse of the most powerful
means of transmission of energy between your peoples in the area of
body complex distortions. We have not previously spoken of the
various types of energy blockages and transfers, positive and
negative, that may take place due to participation in your sexual
reproductive complex of actions. This entity, however, is a very
strong entity with very little distortion from universal green-ray
love energy. Thus this particular plan was not effected either, as
the entity continued to give of itself in this context in an open or
green-ray manner rather than attempting to deceive or to manipulate
The only remaining distortion available, since this entity would not
detune and would not cease sharing love universally under this
chemical substance, was simply to drain this entity of as much
energy as possible. This entity has a strong distortion towards
busy-ness which it has been attempting to overcome for some time,
realizing it not to be the appropriate attitude for this work. In
this particular area the ingestion of this substance did indeed,
shall we say, cause distortions away from viability due to the
busy-ness and the lack of desire to rest; this instrument staying
alert for much longer than appropriate. Thus much vital energy was
lost, making this instrument unusually susceptible to infections
such as it now experiences.
Questioner: The second question that the instrument requested is:
How may I best revitalize my self not only now but in the future?
Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is aware of the basic needs of its
constitution, those being meditation, acceptance of limitations,
experiences of joy through association with others, and with the
beauty as of the singing, and the exercising with great contact,
whenever possible, with the life forces of second density,
especially those of trees; this entity also needing to be aware of
the moderate but steady intake of foodstuffs, exercise being
suggested at a fairly early portion of the day and at a later
portion of the day before the resting.
Questioner: The third question that she requested was: How may Don
and Jim help to revitalize me?
Ra: I am Ra. This is not an appropriate question for full answer. We
can say only that these entities are most conscientious. We may add
that due to this instrument’s distortion towards imbalance in the
space/time nexus, it would be well were this entity accompanied
RA, Fragment 15
Session 26, February 17, 1981
Jim: The following information refers again to Carla’s two
experiences with LSD. We were very thankful that there were only two
experiences with which she and we had to deal, for, as you can see,
the debilitating effects apparently mount rapidly with each
ingestion. The sessions in Book Two of The Law Of One were
necessarily shortened in order to conserve the vital energy of the
instrument which had been drained by the LSD.
Carla: I can only add the fact that this period of weakness did
occur, and so Ra’s suggestion not to mix any drugs with channeling
seems to me a sound piece of advice that I have followed ever since.
Session 26, February 17, 1981
Questioner: The instrument asks how long will the debilitating
effects that I am experiencing due to the LSD last, and is there
anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable?
Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, the period of weakness of bodily complex is
approximately three of your lunar cycles, the first ingestion
causing approximately one of your lunar cycles; the second having a
cumulative or doubling effect.
RA, Fragment 16 -
Session 27, February 21, 1981
Jim: Just before I joined Don and Carla, at the end of 1980, I
traveled to the Portland, Oregon, area to work with Paul Shockley
and the Aquarian Church of Universal Service. It was a happy
experience in itself, and it also provided the catalyst that
eventually saw me return to Kentucky and join L/L Research. After
two months in Oregon I decided to take a weekend alone to think
about an opportunity to earn a great deal of money that had been
presented to me by one of the members of the Aquarian Church. Thirty
seconds into my first meditation of the weekend the very clear
message to return to Don and Carla flashed across my inner sky. So I
said good-bye to my new friends and returned to Louisville. Three
weeks later the Ra contact began, and when Paul Shockley was
informed of the nature of the contact he asked that two questions be
asked for him of the social memory complex, Ra.
The answer to the second query is especially interesting to us
because it seems to suggest the means by which some of the pyramids
of Egypt were constructed.
Carla: In 1986 we were invited to Shockley’s “Friendship”
conference, and I finally met this channel for a source called
“Cosmic Awareness.” He was a very sincere and valiant channel, pure
in his desire to serve. I feel it unfortunate that the questions put
to this channel, over a period of time, pretty much changed and
worsened the quality of information received. As always when this
occurs, the culprit was a fascination with transient material. I
think that it was the questions put to this excellent channel that
lessened the metaphysical level of this channeling.
Session 27, February 21, 1981
Questioner: Jim has felt the obligation to ask two questions that
were asked of him by Paul Shockley, and I will ask those two first,
in case you are able to answer them before we get started. The first
question: Paul Shockley is presently channeling the same source
which Edgar Cayce channeled, and he has received information that he
took part in the design and construction of the Egyptian pyramids.
Can you tell us what his role was in that effort?
Ra: I am Ra. This was in your space/time continuum two periods and
two lifetimes. The first of a physical nature working with
Confederation entities in what you know of as Atlantis, this
approximately 13,000 of your years ago. This memory, shall we say,
being integrated into the unconscious of the mind/body/spirit
complex of this entity due to its extreme desire to remember the
service of healing and polarization possible by the mechanisms of
the crystal and the charged healer.
The second experience being approximately 1,000 of your years later
during which experience this entity prepared, in some part, the
consciousness of the people of what you now call Egypt, that they
were able to offer the calling that enabled those of our social
memory complex to walk among your peoples. During this life
experience this entity was of a priest and teaching nature and
succeeded in remembering in semi-distorted form the learn/teachings
of the Atlantean pyramidal experiences. Thus this entity became a
builder of the archetypal thought of the Law of One with distortions
towards healing which aided our people in bringing this through into
a physical manifestation.
Questioner: The second question is: Paul has also received
information that there were other beings aiding in the construction
of the pyramids, but that they were not fully materialized in the
third density. They were materialized from their waist up to their
heads but were not materialized from their waist down to their feet.
Did such entities exist and aid in the construction of the pyramids,
and who were they?
Ra: I am Ra. Consider, if you will, the intelligent infinity present
in the absorption of living-ness and being-ness as it becomes
codified into intelligent energy, due to the thought impressions of
those assisting the living stone into a new shape of being-ness The
release and use of intelligent infinity for a brief period begins to
absorb all the consecutive or interlocking dimensions, thus offering
brief glimpses of those projecting to the material their thought.
These beings thus beginning to materialize but not remaining
visible. These beings were the thought-form or third-density visible
manifestation of our social memory complex as we offered contact
from our intelligent infinity to the intelligent infinity of the
RA, Fragment 17
Session 29, February 23, 1981
Jim: Ra had advised Carla never to do any kind of physical healing
because she was always very low on physical energy, and such healing
would tend to drain her already low reserve in that area.
Carla: Since I was a child, I have had some sort of odd ability to
sit with someone and, with our hands in contact, be able to clear
some of the surface clutter away from the other person’s mind or
being. I have never investigated what I am doing, or how to do it
better, trusting rather in my instinct for the right time to offer
this. Perhaps I should, but it has always struck me as a very
marginal gift, not one near my central path. I think that if I have
any healing ability, it is in my listening. When someone comes to me
for private counsel, I think of the time as a “listening session,”
and see myself as a spiritual listener. There is much healing in a
person’s talking something through with another in a supportive
atmosphere. The listener simply enables the person to listen better
to herself. And I have very deep instincts towards doing this. So
this is where I have focused my own efforts to become a better
healer. Listening is truly an art, and I think it begins with the
way we listen to ourselves. There is a tremendous strength in
knowing one’s full self, the dark side as well as the one that sees
the light of everyday behavior.
Once one has finally become able to bear one’s own full nature and
has gone through the painful process of surrendering the pride that
would deny that wretchedness within, one becomes better able to love
and forgive oneself. Often I think we feel our failure comes in
being kind to another. But when this occurs, you can be sure the
first and proximate cause of this outer ruthlessness lies within, in
the self’s refusal to reckon with the full-circle self.
Session 29, February 23, 1981
Questioner: The instrument had a question if we have time for a
short question. I will read it. The instrument does not desire to do
physical healing work. She already does spiritual balancing by
hands. Can she read the private healing material without doing
physical healing? I am assuming that she means can she read it
without creating problems in her life pattern? She does not wish to
incur lessening of positive polarity. Can she read the material
under these conditions?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall speak shortly due to the fact that we are
attempting to conserve this instrument’s vital energies during the
three month period of which we have spoken.
This entity has an experiential history of healing on levels other
than the so-called physical. Thus it is acceptable that this
material be read. However, the exercise of fire shall never be
practiced by this instrument as it is used in the stronger form for
RA, Fragment 18
Session 30, February 24, 1981
Jim: A fellow associated with Cosmic Awareness Communications in
Washington state was developing and distributing a machine that was
supposed to augment the general health and well-being of a person,
and we asked Ra whether it might aid Carla. The response suggested
Carla’s magnetic field was somewhat unusual and very likely formed
in such an unusual way as to permit contact with those of Ra
specifically. This unusual magnetic field has been a source of
frequent inconveniences with any electromagnetic equipment which
Carla has used on a regular basis. She breaks it—just by touching it
periodically. She can’t wear any but quartz crystal watches, and we
have many, many semi-functional tape recorders lying about different
areas of our house.
Carla: It makes for a good story, but it can be frustrating to have
electronically damaging energy—I am not amused when I break things.
The last thing I want to do is destroy the very machines that allow
me to communicate. And my tendency to feel various odd energies has
at times been an unwelcome gift. I remember a couple of times when
my being able to perceive some occult frequency or another put me in
the way of very forceful people who decided that I was to work with
them. Of course, I have withstood any requests for help which I felt
uncomfortable accepting, but I really don’t enjoy the process of
convincing someone that I won’t come out and play!
In all of the things, and there are a million or two, that we’ve
tried to better my physical condition, we have not found anything of
that nature that avails. However, the gifts of spirit and faith are
far more efficacious. So I have become relatively uninterested in
new modalities and gadgets—and rest in prayer and peace, knowing the
perfect self within.
Session 30, February 24, 1981
Questioner: The instrument would like to know if you could tell her
whether or not this item which is called Sam Millar’s polarizer
would help her physical well-being. Could you do that?
Ra: I am Ra. As we scan the instrument we find anomalies of the
magnetic field which are distorted towards our abilities to find
narrow band channel into this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex.
The polarizer of which you speak, as it is, would not be helpful. A
careful reading of this instrument’s aura by those gifted in this
area, and subsequent alterations of the magnetizing forces of this
polarizer, would assist the entity, Sam, in creating such a
polarizer that would be of some aid to the instrument. However, we
would suggest that no electrical or magnetic equipment not necessary
for the recording of our words be brought into these sessions, for
we wish no distortions that are not necessary.
RA, Fragment 19
Session 32, February 27, 1981
Jim: Many people have written to us over the years telling us of
what they call psychic attacks and asking how to protect themselves
from them. It seems that one needn’t perform any elaborate rituals
or call upon any big league light bearers for assistance. Ra
describes the manner in which anyone can provide all the protection
that will ever be necessary in any situation. And it is very, very
Carla: I will be 54 next birthday, and as I get older, I become more
and more convinced that our path always lies in offering praise and
thanksgiving for whatever is coming our way, no matter what we may
humanly think about it. This is easy to do in good times, but it is
a matter of some persistence of discipline to train the mind not to
shrink away from trouble we perceive coming at us. However, I
encourage in everyone that patient tenacity that refuses to doubt
the Creator, no matter what. Once we have very clear the fact that
we are safely in the Creator’s hands and heart, this becomes easier.
But the work is never fully done, for we fail again and again to
witness to the light, and this causes confusion in our patterns of
Session 32, February 27, 1981
Questioner: I have a question that I will throw in at this point
from Jim. I will read it. The instrument’s physical vehicle is now
in the process of recovery from the ingestion of a chemical. She was
ignorant of the opening that she was creating. How may the three of
us present be more aware of how such openings may be created in our
actions and our thoughts? Is it possible that we can make such
openings innocently as we question in different areas during these
sessions? And what can we do to protect our selves from negative
influences in general? Are there any rituals or meditations that we
can do to protect our selves?
Ra: I am Ra. Although we are in sympathy with the great desire to be
of service exemplified by the question, our answer is limited by the
distortion of the Way of Confusion. We shall say some general things
which may be of service in this area.
Firstly, when this instrument distorted its bodily complex towards
low vital energy due to this occurrence, it was a recognizable
substance which caused this. This was not a, shall we say, natural
substance nor was the mind/body/spirit complex enough aware of its
distortion towards physical weakness. The natural ways of, shall we
say, everyday existence in which the entity without the distortions
caused by ingestion of strongly effective chemicals may be seen to
be of an always appropriate nature. There are no mistakes, including
the action of this instrument.
Secondly, the means of protection against any negative or
debilitating influence for those upon the positive path was
demonstrated by this instrument to a very great degree. Consider, if
you will, the potentials that this particular occurrence had for
negative influences to enter the instrument. This instrument thought
upon the Creator in its solitude and in actions with other-self,
continually praised and gave thanksgiving to the Creator for the
experiences it was having. This in turn allowed this particular self
such energies as became a catalyst for an opening and strengthening
of the other-self’s ability to function in a more positively
polarized state. Thus we see protection being very simple. Give
thanksgiving for each moment. See the self and the other-self as
Creator. Open the heart. Always know the light and praise it. This
is all the protection necessary.
RA, Fragment 20
Session 34, March 4, 1981
Jim: Because Carla’s physical energy level was always very low and
constantly being drained by the arthritic condition and the
persistent presence of some degree of pain, it became necessary for
her to engage in daily exercise in order to maintain the function of
each portion of her body. We found that the more distorted or low on
energy she was the greater was the need for this exercise. When her
body was functioning most nearly normally, the exercise could be
reduced in length until it also was normal. For Carla that was about
one hour of rapid walking per day.
When Don queried about an experience that he had in 1964, the
specificity of the answer was limited by Ra’s desire to maintain
Don’s free will. Most events in our lives are a mystery in some
degree or another. One way of looking at the process of evolution is
to see it as the process of solving the mysteries all about us. All
events are illusions or mysteries because each represents the one
Creator in one disguise or another, offering us a greater or lesser
opportunity to find love, joy, balance, and perfection in each
moment. There is a spiritual strength that comes with unraveling
such mysteries for one’s self. It is not always a service for those
with better trained eyes to tell another what he does not yet see
for himself, but which he has the capacity to learn to see. Thus Ra
often invoked the Law of Free Will, also known as the Law of
Carla: When I was a child, I danced and swam and rode horses. I
loved exercise, especially when it was rhythmic. The exercise that
was my lot to do during this time was, though very hard, because I
felt so tired, an energizing experience. Both Don and Jim helped me
remember to get these periods in, and Jim made them easier still by
joining me. It is always easier to do such things with a buddy! Don
was not able to join me in these walks, as he had a painful
condition of the feet brought on by working in tropical climes, and
every step hurt. However, I witnessed, from time to time, a level of
animal strength in Don that was miraculous. For instance, in 1977
Don and I went to join in a Mind Link held by Andrija Puharich.
Gathered were a mixed bag of established psychics, all women, and
other mid-aged supporters, and about an equal number of college-age
kids who had identified themselves to Puharich as Wanderers. The
kids loved soccer and played it when we weren’t in session. Don
joined in their first game. He did really well, impressing not only
me but all the kids. They finally had to stop the game, red-faced
and panting. Donald was not even breathing heavily. Needless to say,
the kids warmed up to Don quickly! But they never could get him to
Session 34, March 4, 1981
Questioner: The instrument would like to know if two short exercise
periods per day would be better for her than one long one?
Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect. The proper configuration of the
physical complex exercising during the three month period wherein
the instrument is vulnerable to physical complex distortion
intensification, needs the strengthening of the physical complex.
This may appropriately be seen to be one major period of the
exercising followed late in your diurnal cycle before the evening
meditation by an exercise period approximately one-half the length
of the first. This will be seen to be wearing upon the instrument.
However, it will have the effect of strengthening the physical
complex and lessening the vulnerability which might be taken
Questioner: Is it possible for you to tell me what I experienced,
around 1964 I believe it was, when in meditation I became aware of
what I considered a different density and different planet, and
seemed to experience moving onto that planet? Is it possible for you
to tell me what experience that was?
Ra: I am Ra. We see some harm in full disclosure due to
infringement. We content ourselves with suggesting that this entity,
which is not readily able to subject itself to the process of
hypnotic regression instigated by others, nevertheless, has had its
opportunities for understanding of its being-ness.
RA, Fragment 21
Session 36, March 10, 1981
Jim: Having only a faint but persistent idea that we had come to
this planet in order to be of service to others was apparently a
sufficient degree of the “penetrating of the forgetting process”
that Don mentioned in Session 36, for we had little more than that
with which to begin the Ra contact.
Any third-density entity apparently has a higher self or Oversoul
which is at the mid-sixth density level of being. In addition, the
Wanderer who is a member of a social memory complex also has another
complex of consciousness upon which to call for assistance, for each
social memory complex also seems to have the equivalent of its own
Oversoul or what Ra calls a “mind/body/spirit complex totality.”
Carla: The forgetting process, or the veil, is a term used often by
our sources. The basic thought is that when we take on flesh and
become a manifested entity on the earth plane, that flesh shuts our
metaphysical senses. All that we knew before birth is hidden in the
deeper mind, and we set out on our earthly pilgrimage with only our
naked selves and our heartfelt desires. It is no wonder then that
Wanderers have some difficulty waking up within the illusion we call
consensus reality. There is always the fear, as one enters
incarnation, that one will not awaken at all, but be lost for the
whole life experience. You who read this sentence are probably right
in the midst of this awakening process, beginning more and more to
identify with a new and larger concept of the self as an eternal and
As we all awaken and develop our truer selves, we can help each
other, and I encourage each Wanderer to find ways to support fellow
pilgrims of the light. People will come your way. They may not seem
to be very “aware,” or they may seem quite aware, but very confused
or frightened. If the Creator put them in your way, then you are
well equipped to aid them. Simply love and accept them.
This is much harder to do than to say. It involves first coming to
love and accept yourself, forgiving yourself for the myriad
imperfections and folly you find when gazing within. But all work is
upon the self, speaking metaphysically. If you have trouble loving
someone, look within for the place within self where you have
rejected part of yourself, some slice of the dark side you’d rather
not see or experience. As you work with this loving, accepting and
forgiving of the dark side of self, you are working on service to
all the other selves coming your way. I think the key to this
acceptance of self is to see that to be in flesh is to be very
imperfect and confused. There is no way to be without error when in
the context of the world. Yet within us there is that self without
the veil, with perfect memory of who we are and what we came to do.
Once one is able to face one’s wretched side, one becomes much more
able to be transparent to that infinite love that comes not from us
but through us, to bless all.
In this practice of loving, we have a wonderful source of strength
and courage: the higher self. I call this self the Holy Spirit,
because I am of the distortion called mystical Christianity. Other
people refer to this higher self as inner guides, angelic beings,
the higher nature, or simply Guidance. Whatever the term, this
energy is quite dependable, always there, supporting and sustaining.
One can practice becoming more aware of this energy, consciously
opening to it within meditation, and calling upon it in times of
challenge. I encourage each to see the self as an awakening being,
with much support from the unseen forces. Lean into these sources of
strength in silence and prayer. They will truly aid you.
Session 36, March 10, 1981
Questioner: I was wondering if qualification for contact with Ra
might include penetrating this forgetting process? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is quite correct.
Questioner: Otherwise the Law of Confusion would prohibit this? Is
Ra: This is correct.
Questioner: I was also wondering if three was the minimum number
necessary for this type of working? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. For protection of this instrument this is necessary as
the minimum grouping and also as the most efficient number due to
the exceptional harmony in this group. In other groups the number
could be larger, but we have observed in this contact that the most
efficient support is given by the individual mind/body/spirits
present at this time.
Questioner: I’m a little fuzzy on a point with respect to the higher
self. We each, I am assuming, have an individual higher self at
sixth-density positive level. Is this correct? Each of us in the
room here; that is, the three of us?
Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last full question of this working.
We shall attempt to aim for the intention of your query as we
understand it. Please request any additional information.
Firstly, it is correct that each in this dwelling place has one
Oversoul, as you may call it. However, due to the repeated
harmonious interactions of this triad of entities there may be seen
to be a further harmonious interaction besides the three entities’
Higher Selves; that is, each social memory complex has an Oversoul
of a type which is difficult to describe to you in words. In this
group there are two such social memory complex totalities blending
their efforts with your Higher Selves at this time.
RA, Fragment 22
Session 37, March 12, 1981
Jim: In March of 1981 we sent off the first ten sessions of the Ra
contact to the Scott Meredith Literary Agency in New York City. We
wanted to get the information out to as many people as we could, and
we thought that a large literary agency could help us find a
publisher. After considering the manuscript for about two weeks Mr.
Meredith was kind enough to write us a four-page, single-spaced
letter thanking us for sending him the material and telling us why
it had no chance in the marketplace. The heart of the letter may be
summarized by the following quote:
“No entity that wreaks such havoc with the English language is going
to ingratiate himself with the general reading public. This has all
the denseness of The New England Journal Of Medicine, or the Journal
Of English And German Philosophy or a Ph.D. dissertation on
epistemology … and for another thing, the dialogue form gets pretty
tedious after a while. It was all the rage in Athens for a while, I
know, and its popularity continued all the way through the
neoclassic renaissance, but it died out shortly afterwards, and I
don’t think that it’s about to be revived.”
Ra’s final comment on the topic of how to make the information
available brought a somewhat humorous end to our earnestness. A few
days earlier we had been sitting around the kitchen table wondering
aloud what cosmic humor might be like, and Ra took this opportunity
to give us an illustration. We would give the same basic advice to
any group trying to disseminate information that it has collected so
that it might be of service to others. Relax, and let the Law of
Attraction work. Even if only one person is aided by the work, that
is enough. At the very least, the benefit that the material provides
to the group alone will become like unto a light which each in the
group will radiate to all others met in the daily round of
And, since we had discovered for ourselves the necessity of pursuing
non-transient information, Ra clearly states that was a requirement
for maintaining the contact in contrast to Don’s estimate of the
kind of information that usually attracts the attention of the
Carla: It was always a hope of Don’s that we would be able to
communicate to a large number of people. He felt a real urgency at
getting the word out, and as the contact with Ra persisted, his
concern deepened. It was like a breath of fresh air to find Ra
counseling us to be content with our “reasonable effort.” As we
write these comments, the first book of The Law Of One series has
sold about 30,000 copies. Our mail this week included queries from
Poland, Romania, Malaysia and Japan, as well as the USA and Canada.
I am sure that a little part of Don is sitting on my shoulder like
the angel he is, content at last with his life’s work and seeing it
taken up by those who find it useful.
The concept of sacrifice as part of the beginning of contact is not
new at all. The channel for Oahspe was told in a vision that he must
live austerely for ten years before he could be of help, and he and
a friend did just that, living monastically, waiting for the time of
opportunity. When his decade of sacrifice was through, he was told
to get a typewriter, new at the time. He did so. Over the next few
years, he channeled the huge book, being put at the typewriter while
he was asleep at night. He would awaken each morning to find his
work lying by the machine. And Edgar Cayce had similar experiences
with being told he needed to sacrifice in order to serve. In our
case, Jim sacrificed his love of isolation and retreat from
humankind, Don sacrificed his solitude with me, that happy and safe
harbor we had made together.
He let Jim into the very fabric of our
lives, with never the first word of complaint. He also sacrificed
himself by working in order to support us. I had the easiest
sacrifice, that of myself as channel. The contact was hard on me,
and I wasted away under the brilliant energy of Ra’s vibration,
losing two to three pounds per session. But I would gladly have died
in this service, for during these sessions, Don was a happy man.
This was the only time during which I knew him that he was not
melancholy in his quiet way. To see him fulfilled and content was
one of the greatest sources of pleasure in my whole life, for I knew
that I’d been a part of that. It was worth everything, and I’d do it
all again in a heartbeat, even the extremities of grief which we all
felt as Donald sickened and perished, and I came closer and closer
to death through the years following Don’s suicide. My part of
sacrifice has been turned into joy and satisfaction, and I know Don
and Jim feel the same.
That reviewer at the agency was quite right to view the language of
Ra as technical. It represents the most balanced attempt I have ever
read at creating a vocabulary for talking about metaphysical issues
with neutral emotional words. It may be stilted at first read, but
one always knows what Ra is trying to say, a real achievement in
Session 37, March 12, 1981
Questioner: Is Ra familiar with the results of our efforts today to
publish the first book that we did?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: I don’t know if you can comment on the difficulty that
we will have in making the Law of One available to those who would
require it and want it. It is not something that is easy to
disseminate to those who want it at this time. I am sure that there
are many, especially the Wanderers, who want this information, but
we will have to do something else in order to get it into their
hands in the way of added material, I am afraid. Is it possible for
you to comment on this?
Ra: I am Ra. It is possible.
Questioner: Will you comment on it?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall. Firstly, the choosing of this group to do
some work to serve others was of an intensive nature. Each present
sacrificed much for no tangible result. Each may search its heart
for the type of sacrifice, knowing that the material sacrifices are
the least; the intensive commitment to blending into an harmonious
group at the apex of sacrifice. Under these conditions we found your
vibration. We observed your vibration. It will not be seen often. We
do not wish to puff up the pride, but we shall not chaffer with the
circumstances necessary for our particular contact. Thus you have
received and we willingly undertake the honor/duty of continuing to
offer transmissions of concepts which are, to the best of our
abilities, precise in nature and grounded in the attempt to unify
many of those things that concern you.
Secondly, the use you make of these transmissions is completely at
your discretion. We suggest the flowing of the natural intuitive
senses and a minimum of the distortion towards concern. We are
content, as we have said, to be able to aid in the evolution of one
of your peoples. Whatever effort you make cannot disappoint us, for
that number already exceeds one.
Questioner: I have been very hesitant to ask certain questions for
fear that they would be regarded, as I regard them, as questions of
unimportance or of too great a specificity and thereby reduce our
contact with you. In order to disseminate some of the information
that I consider to be of great importance; that is, the
non-transient type of information, information having to do with the
evolution of mind, body, and spirit, it seems almost necessary in
our society to include information that is of little value simply
because that is how our society works, how the system of
distribution appraises that which is offered for distribution. Will
you comment on this problem that I have?
Ra: I am Ra. We comment as follows: It is quite precisely correct
that the level and purity of this contact is dependent upon the
level and purity of information sought. Thusly, the continued
request for specific information from this particular source is
deleterious to the substance of your purpose. Moreover, as we
scanned your mind to grasp your situation as regards the typescript
of some of our words, we found that you had been criticized for the
type of language construction used to convey data. Due to our
orientation with regard to data, even the most specifically answered
question would be worded by our group in such a way as to maximize
the accuracy of the nuances of the answer. This, however, mitigates
against what your critic desires in the way of simple, lucid prose.
More than this we cannot say. These are our observations of your
situation. What you wish to do is completely your decision and we
remain at your service in whatever way we may be without breaking
the Way of Confusion.
Questioner: We will attempt to work around these problems in the
dissemination of the Law of One. It will take some careful work to
do this. I personally will not cease while still incarnate to
disseminate this. It will be necessary to write a book, probably
about UFOs because the Law of One is connected with the phenomenon.
It’s connected with all phenomena, but this seems to be the easiest
entry for dissemination. I plan firstly to use the UFO in the
advertising sense as it was meant by the Confederation as an entry
into an explanation of the process of evolution that is going on on
this planet and how the rest of the Confederation has been involved
in a more understandable way, shall I say, for the population that
will read the book. We will use the Ra material in undistorted form
just as it has been recorded here in various places throughout the
book to amplify and clarify what we are saying in the book. This is
the only way that I can see right now to create enough dissemination
for the people who would like to have the Law of One for them to be
able to get it. I could just print up the material that we have off
of the tape recorder and publish it but we wouldn’t be able to
disseminate it very well because of distribution problems. Will you
comment on my second idea of doing a general book on UFOs including
the material from the Law of One?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall comment. We hope that your Ra plans
materialize. This is a cosmic joke. You were asking for such an
example of humor and we feel this is a rather appropriate nexus in
which one may be inserted. Continue with your intentions to the best
of your natures and abilities. What more can be done, my friends?
RA, Fragment 23
Session 38, March 13, 1981
Jim: Serving as the instrument for the Ra contact was very wearing
on Carla. She would lose between two and three pounds per session,
and the psychic greeting component of the contact often intensified
her arthritic distortions to the point that her functioning on all
levels was severely curtailed. Thus Don and I had hoped that one or
the other of us could take her place from time to time in order to
give her rest, but neither of us was properly prepared for this
service. So rest was obtained by spacing the sessions out over a
greater period of time, and we all contented ourselves with the fact
that there was a price to be paid for being able to offer this kind
of service, and Carla would have to bear the brunt of that price.
Carla: I cannot express the amount of pleasure I felt at being able
to serve in this way. To see Donald happy and inspired was a
satisfaction of the heart that struck to the depths of my being. I
adored Don, and wished to make him comfortable and happy. But he was
not comfortable in this world, and so often felt painfully lonely
and isolated, although this was never mentioned, nor did he show it
in any way. For some reason, his pain and loneliness were always
utterly apparent to me, and called forth my deepest sympathy and
desire to nurture. The days of the Ra contact were golden indeed. I
would have died quite gladly doing one last session, and rather
expected to, and embraced that freely, but Don’s death came first.
So I remain! The years since his death have opened to me a wonderful
path of service, as readers write in, and I have become counselor
and friend to so many all over the world. It is as though I received
a second life, for truly when Donald died, the Carla that was, was
gone. He had taken a 25-year¬old and molded her to his needs, with
my willing aid. I became truly his creature. When I woke up from
that life, 16 years later, I was neither that 25¬year-old nor Don’s.
I really had to start from scratch to discover my current self.
Session 38, March 13, 1981
Questioner: Will you tell us if there would be any hope or any
purpose in either Jim or me taking the instrument’s place as
instrument by attempting the trance work ourselves?
Ra: I am Ra. This information is on the borderline of infringement
upon free will. We shall, however, assume your desire to constitute
permission to speak slightly beyond limits set by Confederation
guidelines, shall we say.
At this space/time nexus neither the one known as Don nor the one
known as Jim is available for this working. The one known as Don,
by, shall we say, practicing the mechanics of contact and service to
others by means of the channeling, as you call it, would in a
certain length of your time become able to do this working. The one
known as Jim would find it difficult to become a channel of this
type without more practice also over a longer period of time. Then
we should have to experiment with the harmonics developed by this
practice. This is true in both cases.
RA, Fragment 24
Session 39, March 16, 1981
Jim: The difficulties in recovering physical energy which Carla
experienced as a result of the two experiences with LSD continued to
shorten sessions and keep her condition somewhat fragile. We again
saw not only the powerful effects of this chemical agent—which we do
not recommend to anyone—but the even more powerful effects of unwise
choices made by those who wish above all else to be of service to
others. As time and experience with the Ra contact accumulated we
became increasingly aware that the honor of providing this kind of
service brought with it the need for just as much responsibility for
providing the service with as much purity and harmony as one was
capable of producing in every facet of the life experience. What was
learned needed to be put to use in the daily life, or difficulties
would result in the life pattern which were the means by which the
subconscious mind would provide the opportunity to regain the
balance and harmony which had been lost. These difficulties could
then also be intensified by Orion crusaders in the form of psychic
greetings designed to stop the contact with Ra.
We also discovered that every person which incarnates brings with
him or her certain avenues, preferences, or ways of nurturing its
inner beingness. This inner beingness is that which is the true
enabler and ennobler of our daily lives. When we would ask Ra how
best to aid the instrument we would often get more specific
suggestions according to the situation, but we would always be
reminded of those qualities which were Carla’s ways of nurturing her
Carla: Data from the Ra contact indicates that I never had much
actual physical energy at all, which fits with my own personal,
subjective sense of myself as one who runs on spiritual and mental
energy, and as one physically lazy. I call it laziness because I
have such a hard time making myself do physical work, unless it is
walking and wandering, dancing or swimming, rhythmic activities I
love. Even as a young child I was easily able to sit and read, or
sit and imagine, for hours. So the sessions we were doing completely
exhausted my actual innate physical energy quite quickly. To this
very day, I think since then I have always run on nerve alone, and
the simple joy of being alive, which I have in abundance.
Don and Jim both were very upright persons of marked integrity and
character, which helped tremendously as the process of psychic
greeting could only work on our inherent distortions. They loved
each other and treated each other with great respect, and did their
utmost to care for me. They were wonderful in making sure that all
was done as well as possible to make me more comfortable. I also had
the advantage of being a straight-arrow kind of soul all my life. So
the negative energy could only intensify my many physical
“problems.” Thusly the sessions were extremely wearing, but I
gloried in them nevertheless, for seeing Don’s pleasure in the talks
with Ra was more than enough payment to me. I was and am careless of
life force if by giving it I can see another live more fully.
I should note that I see the purity that Ra speaks of in myself not
as a shining virtue, nor as a personal achievement, but rather as a
gift of nature. I cannot remember a time when I was other than
completely involved in the passion of my life: that life itself. I
saw myself as a child of God, and wanted my life to be a gift to
that deity. I was drawn to virtue as others are to gambling or
drugs. This inexplicable condition still prevails—my hopes for this
life remain simply the giving of all I have to the Creator. What
this purity is not, is celibacy or retreat from the workings of the
world. I have always followed my relationships and based my life
around them, trusted my passion, and had an earthy, even vulgar
side. I simply find life a wonder and a joy, and all the limitation,
mess, loss and pain in this world have not changed my mind on that.
Session 39, March 16, 1981
Questioner: The instrument was wondering if the fragile feeling she
has now is the result of the chemical ingestion of about six weeks
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. This instrument is now undergoing the
most intensive period of physical complex debilitation/distortion
due to the doubling effects of the two ingestions. This instrument
may expect this extremity to proceed for a period of fifteen to
twenty of your diurnal cycles. The weakness distortions will then
begin to lift, however, not as rapidly as we first thought due to
this instrument’s weakness distortions. This instrument is very
fortunate in having a support group which impresses upon it the
caution necessary as regards these sessions at this time. This
instrument is capable of almost instantaneously clearing the
mental/emotional complex and the spiritual complex for the purity
this working requires, but this instrument’s distortion towards
fidelity to service does not function to its best use of judgment
regarding the weakness distortions of the physical complex. Thus we
appreciate your assistance at space/times such as that in your most
recent decision-making not to have a working. This was the
appropriate decision and the guidance given this instrument was
Questioner: Is there anything that the instrument can do in addition
to what she is attempting to do to help her condition get better
faster? I know that she hasn’t been able to exercise because of her
foot problem for the last couple of days, but we are hoping to get
back to that. Is there anything else that she could do?
Ra: I am Ra. As we have implied, the negative entities are moving
all stops out to undermine this instrument at this time. This is the
cause of the aforementioned problem with the pedal digit. It is
fortunate that this instrument shall be greatly involved in the
worship of the one infinite Creator through the vibratory complexes
of sacred song during this period. The more active physical
existence, both in the movements of exercise and in the sexual
sense, are helpful. However the requirement of this instrument’s
distortions toward what you would call ethics have an effect upon
this latter activity. Again, it is fortunate that this instrument
has the opportunities for loving social intercourse which are of
some substantial benefit. Basically, in your third density
continuum, this is a matter of time.
Questioner: From your reading of the instrument’s condition can you
approximate how often and the length of workings we should plan on
in future workings?
Ra: I am Ra. This query borders upon infringement. The information
given sets up fairly followable guidelines. However, we are aware
that not only can each of you not read this instrument’s aura and so
see conditions of the physical complex but also the instrument
itself has considerable difficulty penetrating the precise
distortion condition of its physical complex due to its constant
dependence upon its will to serve. Therefore, we believe we are not
infringing if we indicate that one working each alternate diurnal
period in the matinal hours is most appropriate with the possibility
of a shorter working upon the free matinal period if deemed
appropriate. This is so not only during this period but in general.
RA, Fragment 25
Session 42, March 22, 1981
Jim: Almost everyone on the path of consciously seeking the truth
has had some kind of mystical experience that may or may not make
much sense to the person. Most such experiences remain unfathomable
to our conscious minds and accomplish their work in an unseen and
incomprehensible fashion. Being inhabitants of the third density
with the great veil of forgetting drawn over our ability to see and
to truly know, we must content ourselves with the fact that we only
make the barest beginnings upon understanding in this illusion. But
we may also rest assured that there are no mistakes and that the
events of our lives, whether ordinary or extraordinary, fall into
the appropriate place at the appropriate time.
Carla: Don had several experiences of altered consciousness that
were permanently etched into his mind. The initiation he spoke of
here was received in 1968, while we were in meditation together. He
suddenly found himself in a world where the colors were living. He
said these colors made our earthly hues look like black and white
photos. They were three-dimensional. He saw living waters, and a
golden sunrise streaming over the sky. He could open his eyes and he
was in his chair, then close them again and see the other world.
This state lasted about half an hour. The other event that is
notable, to me, was a night he was meditating and found his arm
moving rapidly up and down from elbow to fingers as his arm rested
upon the chair arm. A blue light began to emanate from his lower
arm, and he was forever grateful that he had company who saw his arm
turning blue and glowing. Later transmissions indicated that the UFO
entities were winding his battery!
Session 42, March 22, 1981
Questioner: I had one experience in meditation which I spoke of
before which was very profound approximately twenty years ago, a
little less. What disciplines would be most applicable to create
this situation and this type of experience?
Ra: I am Ra. Your experience would best be approached from the
ceremonial magical stance. However, the Wanderer or adept shall have
the far greater potential for this type of experience which, as you
have undoubtedly analyzed to be the case, is one of an archetypal
nature, one belonging to the roots of cosmic consciousness.
Questioner: Was that in any way related to the Golden Dawn in
Ra: I am Ra. The relationship was congruency.
Questioner: Then in attempting to reproduce this experience would I
then best follow the practices for the Order of the Golden Dawn in
Ra: I am Ra. To attempt to reproduce an initiatory experience is to
move, shall we say, backwards. However, the practice of this form of
service to others is appropriate in your case working with your
associates. It is not well for positively polarized entities to work
singly. The reasons for this are obvious.
QUESTIONER. Then this experience was a form of initiation? Is this
Ra: I am Ra. Yes.
RA, Fragment 26 -
Session 44, March 28, 1981
Jim: Session 44 was removed from Book Two because it is almost
entirely a maintenance session. In querying as to how best to
revitalize Carla’s physical vehicle and aid the contact with Ra in
general we did, however, discover a couple of fundamental principles
which we found useful thereafter.
In the first answer we found that a strong desire to be of service
is not enough when it is uninformed by wisdom. Carla, and our entire
group as well, suffered in the first months of the Ra contact from
an overactive desire to be of service through having more sessions
with Ra than was helpful for the contact over the long run.
Scheduling so many sessions in such a short period of time was
overly draining on Carla’s physical energy and would mean that the
total number of sessions that was possible during her incarnation
was probably being reduced.
The second principle which we found of interest was the power of
dedication. If Carla dedicated herself to having a session with Ra
she would expend an amount of energy equal to a full day’s work—even
if the session did not occur. Thus it was most important that her
dedication be informed by wisdom, if not her own then that of the
support group’s. Thus, for any person, it is the will which drives
the dedication, all thoughts, words, and actions depending therefrom.
As one points the will, one’s desires become manifest. It is
important, therefore, that one use the will carefully.
Carla: My body has always been fragile. Born with birth defects,
laid low by rheumatic fever at the age of 2 years and kidney failure
at ages 13 and 15, I have since worked with an increasing amount of
rheumatoid arthritic and other rheumatoid diseases. By 1981, when
the contact with Ra began, I had had several operations on my wrists
and finger joints, and was experiencing rheumatoid changes in
virtually every joint in my body, the neck and back being the worst
hit after the hands. I had worked as a librarian, a job I loved, and
as a researcher and writer for Don, but 1976 was the last year I was
able to manage a typewriter, and by 1981 I was on Social Security
Disability and having grave problems physically, both organic and
rheumatoid. I was in pain constantly. I tolerated this without much
remark, and tried to appear well; indeed, I felt healthy. But the
body was a weak one. And I think that the trance state was difficult
because without my being able to move my body around, it simply lay
in one position during the sessions. This meant that the bad joints
were liable to become far more painful, especially in those joints
of back, neck and wrist which were severely damaged. I would wake up
in a world of hurt. There did not seem to be a way to avoid this,
and it was easy for me to be discouraged at my imperfect physical
vehicle. I felt as though I were letting the group down when Ra said
they had to limit the session length, and always tried my hardest to
maximize my time in trance.
Donald and Jim never reproached me even the first time, and were
endlessly patient in working with my limitations. However, I cried
many a tear of frustration, for I wished so much to be able to
continue with this channeling of Ra. It was fortunate for the
contact that Jim and I were lovers, for apparently all the physical
energy I had to give, after the first few sessions, was the energy
transferred during lovemaking. How does a person called “pure” have
a lover? Purely, of course. I tried celibacy for about two years
when Don and I first got together. I found it extremely difficult
and unsatisfying as a life choice. After talking this over with
Donald, we agreed that I would take a lover if I wished. As he was
gone fully half of the time flying for Eastern Air Lines, I was able
to be completely discreet. He never saw the lover, who never saw
him. When Jim began coming to meditations regularly, I had once
again been celibate for about four years, not having anyone I felt
good about to be a lover and friend. Jim was the answer to a
maiden’s prayers, being extremely fond of his solitude most of the
time, but a marvelous companion and an amazing lover when he was in
the mood. He wanted nothing from me in the everyday sense of having
a constant companion. Don wanted only that companionship. The two
men fitted into my life like puzzle pieces, just so. It was, for the
time it lasted, a seamless and wonderful threesome of those who
truly and entirely wished to serve.
I pondered Ra’s words about martyrdom for some time, and eventually
decided that I should take a vacation, the first one I had taken
since 1971. Jim and I went to the seashore, and I rested and felt
great healing. I see this as the first step I took away from the
forces of death and towards an embrace of continued life. I wish
that Don could also have done this, but it was not in him.
I think Ra’s comments on how to treat psychic greeting are very
wise. To look on these experiences of being “attacked” as less than
vitally important was to invite their prolongation. When faced and
given full consideration, without fear, just being with these
energies and loving them, seeing them as the dark side of oneself,
the greetings were simply experiences to have and to ponder, working
towards acceptance of the full self. Jesus suggested that we not
resist evil, and I think this is part of what He meant—to embrace
the greeting as coming from the self, and as loved by the self, was
to draw its teeth and neutralize its venom.
Donald had a long-standing interest in ritual magic, one that
predated my arrival in his life. He was fascinated with the thought
that somehow he could help me by dealing with the negative entities
that were offering greetings. It has always been an uneasy thought
that he, as he once discussed with Jim, might have tried to make a
pact with the entity that was so persistently greeting me, to give
himself instead of me.
Session 44, March 28, 1981
Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one
infinite Creator. We communicate now.
Questioner: The instrument had some question as to her vitality. We
were having some difficulty in appraising it. Is it possible for you
to comment on this?
Ra: I am Ra. We scan this instrument and find that we may be of
service without infringement due to this instrument’s decision to
abide by the most careful appraisal possible rather than the most
We have been surprised that we have been able to maintain contact on
a regular basis during this most intense period of negatively
influenced interference. Sexual energy transfers have at some
workings given this instrument additional vital resources upon which
to draw. However, this is not so at this working and, therefore, the
will of the instrument drives its bodily complex. This instrument
has no judgment about this service. The faculty of will, while
recognized as most central and valuable, could in this application
cause serious distortion in the bodily complex of the instrument.
May we note that martyrdom is not necessarily helpful. We ask this
instrument to examine these thoughts, judge, and discriminate the
possible truth of them, and if they be deemed true we suggest this
instrument release the power of judgment to the support group whose
interests are balanced far more than this instrument’s. Allow
decisions to be made without expectation or attachment to the
outcome. Our hopes, may we say, for long-term contact through this
instrument depend upon its maturing ability to be of service to
other-selves by accepting their help and thus remaining a viable
May we thank the questioner for allowing us to speak to this point,
for we were aware of the distortions incumbent upon one whose will
to serve is not regulated by knowledge of limitations of bodily
Questioner: Could you please terminate this contact as soon as
necessary since we are not aware of the vitality of the instrument
at this time?
Ra: I am Ra. In your way of speaking our hands are, to a certain
extent, tied. This instrument has called upon inner reserves which
are dearly bought. Therefore, we have the honor/duty of using this
energy to the best of our ability. When it becomes low we shall most
certainly, as always, express the need for ending the working. The
only way of avoiding this sharing of service at whatever cost is to
refrain from the working. It is a dilemma.
Questioner: Can you tell me what the tone was that I heard in my
left ear when you started your communication?
Ra: I am Ra. This was a negatively oriented signal.
Questioner: Can you tell me how I would hear a positively oriented
Ra: I am Ra. Two types there are of positive signal. First, in the
right ear location the signal indicates a sign that you are being
given some unworded message saying, “Listen. Take heed.” The other
positive sign is the tone above the head which is a balanced
confirmation of a thought.
Questioner: Are there any other negatively oriented signals that I
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. You are able to receive thought-forms,
word-forms, and visions. However, you seem able to discriminate.
Questioner: Is there a reason that I am open to these signals of a
Ra: I am Ra. Are you not all things?
Questioner: I think that it might be a good idea if we terminated
the contact at this time to allow the instrument to gain more of the
necessary energy before continuing these sessions. This is my
decision at this time. I would very much like to continue the
contact, but it seems to me, although I can’t tell the instrument’s
level, that the instrument should not use up any more energy.
Ra: I am Ra. We are responding to an unasked query. However, it is
most salient and therefore we beg your forgiveness for this
infringement. The energy has been lost to the instrument, dedicated
to this purpose only. You may do as you will, but this is the nature
of the instrument’s preparation for contact and is the sole reason
we may use it.
Questioner: I am not sure if I fully understood you. Could you say
that in a little different way? Could you explain more completely?
Ra: I am Ra. Each of you in this working has consciously dedicated
the existence now being experienced to service to others. This
instrument has refined this dedication through long experience with
the channeling, as you term it, of Confederation philosophy, as you
may say. Thus when we first contacted this instrument it had offered
its beingness, not only to service to other-selves but service by
communication of this nature. As this contact has developed, this
dedication of beingness has become quite specific. Thus once the
vital energy is dedicated by the instrument to our communications,
even if the working did not occur, this vital energy would be lost
to the day-by-day experience of the instrument. Thus we indicated
the importance of the instrument’s releasing of the will from the
process of determining the times of working, for if the instrument
desires contact, the energy is gathered and thus lost for ordinary
or mundane purposes.
Questioner: In that case, since her energy is already lost, we might
as well continue with this session, and we should very carefully
monitor the instrument and be the sole judge of when the sessions
should occur. Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is profoundly correct. This instrument’s
determination to continue contact during this period has already
extended the low energy period.
Questioner: This is very revealing to us. Thank you. Each of us gets
signals and dreams. I have been aware of clairaudient communication
at least once in waking up. Can you suggest a method whereby we
might be able, shall I say, to nullify the influence of that which
we don’t want of a negative source?
Ra: I am Ra. There are various methods. We shall offer the most
available or simple. To share the difficult contact with the
other-selves associated with this working and to meditate in love
for these senders of images and light for self and other-selves is
the most available means of nullifying the effects of such
occurrences. To downgrade these experiences by the use of intellect
or the disciplines of will is to invite the prolonging of the
effects. Far better then to share in trust such experiences and join
hearts and souls in love and light with compassion for the sender
and armor for the self.
Questioner: Can you tell me the source of the instrument’s dream
this morning as soon as she woke up?
Ra: I am Ra. The feeling of the dream, shall we say, was
Orion-influenced. The clothing of the dream revealing more the
instrument’s unconscious associative patterns of symbolism.
Questioner: In meditation a number of years ago my arm started to
glow and to move rapidly involuntarily. What was that?
Ra: I am Ra. The phenomenon was an analogy made available to you
from your higher self. The analogy was that the being that you were
was living in a way not understood by, shall we say, physicists,
scientists, or doctors.
Questioner: What I am trying to get at in this session is if there
are any practices that we might be able to do to best revitalize the
instrument, for it is going to be necessary to do all we can in
order to maintain our contact. Can you tell us what we can do to
increase the instrument’s vitality for these contacts?
Ra: I am Ra. Your experience was a function of your ability to
contact intelligent infinity. Therefore, it does not have a direct
bearing upon this instrument’s vital energy.
We have spoken before of those things which aid this instrument in
the vital energy: the sensitivity to beauty, to the singing of
sacred music, to the meditation and worship, to the sharing of self
with self in freely given love either in social or sexual
intercourse. These things work quite directly upon the vitality.
This instrument has a distortion towards appreciation of variety of
experiences. This, in a less direct way, aids vitality.
Questioner: I was looking at a diagram of the advancement of magical
practices starting from Malkuth and ending at Kether. I was
wondering if these corresponded to the colors or the densities with
Malkuth as one, Yesod as two, Hod and Netzach being three, Tiphareth
four, and so on. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is basically incorrect although you are upon the
correct track of thinking. Each of these stations has a complex
number and shading of energy centers as well as some part in various
balances; the lower, the middle, the high, and the total balance.
Thus there are complex colors or rays and complex charges, if you
will, in each station.
Questioner: Does the left-hand path of this represent the
service-to-self path and the right-hand path the service-to-others?
Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last full query of this working.
This is incorrect. These stations are relationships. Each path has
these relationships offered. The intent of the practitioner in
working with these powerful concepts determines the polarity of the
working. The tools are the tools.
Questioner: As an ending question I will just ask if it is possible
for the lpsissimus then to have either positive or negative
polarity, or must he be neither?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall respond to the meaning of this term in a
specialized sense. The Ipsissimus is one who has mastered the Tree
of Life and has used this mastery for negative polarization.
Is there any brief query which we may respond to as we take leave of
Questioner: I am sorry that we got a little off the track today. I
think that the most important thing that we accomplished was
discovering how to better regulate the instrument’s sessions, and I
would hope that you would bear with me for my inability to select
questions properly at times. Sometimes I probe into areas to see if
it is a direction in which we might go, and once entering, am then
able to determine whether or not to continue in that direction.
Other than that, all I would like to ask is if there is anything
that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve
Ra: I am Ra. There are no mistakes. Be at rest, my friend. Each of
you is most conscientious. All is well. I leave you in the love and
the light of the one infinite Creator. Go forth, therefore,
rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.
I am Ra. Adonai.
