Law of One Summary and Reflection: Session 16

Article by Doug Esse

Session 16 is long and covers a lot of territory. Topics include: the quarantine and the Guardians who set it up, Moses, the Confederation-Yahweh, Orion as the False-Yahweh, our solar system, Wanderers, the harvest, the history of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator, and Ra’s learning experience in sixth density.

May you, dear reader, be blessed and filled with the love and peace, the joy and delight, of our One Infinite Creator. May you trust that the moment contains love (ref 10.14).

16.0 Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of the Infinite Creator. We communicate now.

16.1 Questioner: As I ask questions, there will unfortunately be [inaudible] I think the direction I wish to go investigating the Law of One. However, I have ideas in mind of some questions [inaudible]. They may be stupid questions; I don’t know, but [inaudible]. [Inaudible] trying to construct a complete, unbiased book about the Law of One, one which itself takes into account the Law of One. I hope that you [inaudible] ridiculous.

I would like to ask, considering the free will distortion of the Law of One, how can the Guardians quarantine the Earth? Is this quarantine within the free will distortion?

Ra: I am Ra. The Guardians guard the free will distortion of the mind/body/spirit complexes of third density on this planetary sphere. The events which require activation of quarantine were interfering with the free will distortion of mind/body/spirit complexes.

Doug: Don wants to know how could the installation of the quarantine be following the Law of One. How could its presence align with the primal law of free will? Ra answers that there were things done by certain Confederation members that were judged by other members to have infringed upon the free will of humans. Recall that the Yahweh group brought over the Martian souls and genetically modified them before bringing them into incarnation at the beginning of Earth’s third density, 75,000 years ago.


16.2 Questioner: I may be wrong, but it seems to me that it would be the free will of, say the Orion group, to interfere. How is this balanced against the other concept you just gave?

Ra: I am Ra. The balancing is from dimension to dimension. The attempts of the so-called Crusaders to interfere with free will are acceptable upon the dimension of their understanding. However, the mind/body/spirit complexes of this dimension you call third form a dimension of free will which is not able to, shall we say, recognize in full, the distortions towards manipulation. Thus, in order to balance the dimensional variances in vibration, a quarantine was set up, this being a balancing situation whereby the free will of the Orion group is not stopped but given a challenge. Meanwhile, the third-density group is not hindered from free choice.

Doug: Each density has its own ways to balance free will. Orion knows full well that they want to conquer Earth and it is proper for them to try given that they are fourth-density negative. But in third density, with so much confusion here, not to mention the veil-of-forgetting in place, humans in general have little idea what polarity they are following at any given time. What may seem like a positive thing could be negative. And what may seem like negative, could be positive. Therefore, part of the job of the quarantine-net is to safeguard the amounts of negative-polarity stimulus that gets in so that humans “are not hindered from free choice.” Orion can still get in but only to the degree allowed by karma and calling.


16.3 Questioner: Could these windows that occur… let the Orion group come through once in a while… does this have anything to do with this free will distortion?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

16.4 Questioner: Could you tell me how that works?

Ra: I am Ra. The closest analogy would be a random number generator within certain limits.

16.5 Questioner: What is the source of this random number generator? Is it created by the Guardians to balance their guarding? Or is it a source other than the Guardians?

Ra: I am Ra. All sources are one. However, we understand your query. The window phenomenon is an other-self phenomenon from the Guardians. It operates from the dimensions beyond space/time in what you may call the area of intelligent energy. Like your cycles, such balancing, such rhythms are as a clock striking. In the case of the windows, no entities have the clock. Therefore, it seems random. It is not random in the dimension which produces this balance. That is why we stated the analogy was within certain limits.

Doug: I see Ra’s above statements as telling us that the quarantine-net that was set up by the super-advanced Guardians is really complex and able to function in multi-varied ways appropriate to different densities. These Guardians are NOT the same Guardians to which Ra refers when they spoke about the Yahweh group. The Guardians that set up the quarantine-net are from the next octave above our own….way more advanced than the Ra group or the Yahweh group or anyone else in the Confederation of Planets in the Service to the Infinite Creator. These Guardians are at the Logoic levels, completely one with Source in all ways. But notice the subtly here. Even at the Logoic level, the primal Law of Service is at play. God at whatever level is not lacking in compassion nor remains unmoved. God cannot help but help God.

The quarantine-net is like an extraordinarily complex computer program that measures and evaluates metaphysical things like planetary karma, planetary free-will, and the balance between positive and negative influencers getting in to connect with the planetary population. This super-advanced computer program can’t be hacked by anyone in our octave, no matter how advanced. What appears to be random openings that occur in the net where Orion members can slip in, are part of the program that allows a trickle of negativity to seep in to balance out whatever positivity is also coming in… and all of this balancing is measured against whatever degree Earth’s humanity is calling for aid.


16.6 Questioner: Then this window balancing prevents the Guardians from reducing their positive polarization by totally eliminating the Orion contact through shielding. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct. In effect, the balancing allows an equal amount of positive and negative influx, this balanced by the mind/body/spirit distortions of the social complex. Thus in your particular planetary sphere, less negative, as you would call it, information or stimulus is necessary than positive due to the somewhat negative orientation of your social complex distortion.

16.7 Questioner: In this way, total free will is balanced so that the individual may have an equal opportunity to choose service to others or service to self. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Doug: Imagine that there is a spectrum that tracks collective polarity between negative on the far left and positive on the far right. It seems that Ra is saying here that Earth’s humanity orientation, or collective thoughtforms, would belong on the somewhat negative side even though elsewhere, they say that majority of the souls on Earth are positive. That’s quite an incongruence, indeed.

Ra clarifies Don’s question and says that “less negative” information or influence (stimulus) is allowed to come through the quarantine rather than straight-up positive information or influence because humanity has created a condition through our collective orientation that attracts matching polarized info/stimulus. In the spiritual sense, we get what we deserve because “like knows like,” as the key Perennial Philosophical nugget goes.


16.8 Questioner: This is a profound revelation, I believe, in the Law of Free Will. Thank you.

This is a minor question further to make an example of this principle, but if the Confederation landed on Earth, they would be taken as gods, breaking the Law of Free Will and thus reducing their polarization towards service to all. I assume that the same thing would happen if the Orion group landed. How would this affect their polarization towards service to self if they were able to land and became known as gods?

Ra: I am Ra. In the event of mass landing of the Orion group, the effect of polarization would be strongly towards an increase in the service to self, precisely the opposite of the former opportunity which you mentioned.

16.9 Questioner: If the Orion group was able to land, would this increase their polarization? What I am trying to get at is, is it better for them to work behind the scenes and get recruits, shall we say, from our planet, the person on our planet going towards service to self strictly on his own using his free will, or is it just as good for the Orion group to land upon our planet and demonstrate remarkable powers and get people like that?

Ra: I am Ra. The first instance is, in the long run, shall we put it, more salubrious for the Orion group in that it does not infringe upon the Law of One by landing and, thus, does its work through those of this planet. In the second circumstance, a mass landing would create a loss of polarization due to the infringement upon the free will of the planet. However, it would be a gamble. If the planet then were conquered and became part of the Empire, the free will would then be re-established. This is restrained in action due to the desire of the Orion group to progress towards the One Creator. This desire to progress inhibits the group from breaking the Law of Confusion.

Doug: Don wants know how the law of free will would play out metaphysically if the Orion Empire pulled an all-out alien invasion. Ra says that to invade en masse would be a gamble for the Orion Empire. If they could completely conquer Earth and squelch any resistance, then Earth would be added to Orion’s list of conquered planets and become part of the Empire. But total conquest would be difficult because Orion would not only have to use force but then somehow influence the minds and hearts of the Earth’s people. They would have to frame negative concepts into somethings that appear positive.

Instead, Ra says that the Orion Empire prefers to play the long game and work in secret behind the scenes so that Earth’s “orientation of [our] social complex” could be slowly nudged further along the spectrum into negative polarity. This way, the people of Earth willingly enslave themselves over generations.

I’d like to add here an opinion. Yes, the Orion Empire has been busy at work for thousands of years and they have made some definite progress. But almost every time they try to course-correct our social evolution towards the negative, humanity’s overwhelming positivity (many more positive souls than negative here) gets in the way. There are many examples of this happening and some are listed in the Law of One material. A few contemporary examples, in my mind, include our current discovery, acceptance, and healing of our many social ills such as racism, internalized racism, macro aggressions, micro aggressions, heterosexism, ageism, inequity at all levels including economic, racial, sexual, and gender. The breaking in of the energy of fourth density is awakening our hearts to see what we could not see for thousands of years. Instead of becoming complacent, the divine feminine is awake and at work in the hearts of people everywhere, across the globe.


16.10 Questioner: You mentioned the word “Empire” in relation to the Orion group. I have thought for some time that the movie Star Wars was somehow an allegory, in part, for what is actually happening. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct in the same way that a simple children’s story is an allegory for physical/philosophical/social complex distortion/understanding.

16.11 Questioner: Is there a harvest of entities oriented towards service to self like there is a harvest here of entities oriented towards service to others?

Ra: I am Ra. There is one harvest. Those able to enter fourth density through vibrational complex levels may choose the manner of their further seeking of the One Creator.

To the Church in Laodicea
“…I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other!  So because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of My mouth.” –Revelation 3:15-16


16.12 Questioner: Then as we enter the fourth density there will be a split, shall we say, and part of the individuals who go into the fourth density will go to planets or places where there is service to others and the other part will go into places where there is service to self.

Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.


16.13 Questioner: Well, the Confederation established its quarantine I understand seventy-five thousand years ago. Has the Orion group been attempting to contact any part of this planet prior to that or… did they… how long have they been attempting [inaudible] contacting this planet?

Ra: I am Ra. Approximately four five thousand [45,000] years ago an attempt was made. It was not successful. Approximately two six oh oh, two thousand six hundred [2,600]*, years ago the group sent an entity of social memory complex to this planetary sphere. This effort met with some success but was in the space/time continuum lessened in impact. Since approximately two three oh oh, two thousand three hundred [2,300]*, years ago in your measurement this group has constantly been working upon the harvest just as the Confederation.

* Ra corrected these dates in session 17. They should be 3,600 and 3,300 years ago, respectively.

Doug: This time noted by Ra is interesting. They say that Orion tried to connect with Earth humans 45,000 years ago and then again 3,600 years ago. Not only is that quite the span of time between Orion attempts but note here that Orion did NOT play a part in the wars and disintegration of Atlantis. Something else was at play there to result in such bellicosity. My guesses include: 1) Atlantis souls were a motley crew but probably many originated from Maldek and Mars, both quite bellicose. 2) This bellicosity was likely heightened through the Law of Responsibility which had kicked in by the second major cycle (ref. session 22). The Law of Responsibility is a metaphysical law that increases a person’s ability to grasp the lessons in third density and comes online when a person reaches a threshold number of incarnations where their chosen polarity starts to gain traction. 3) The heterogenous root stock of human souls, rather than the normal homogenous norm for planets beginning third density, resulted in tribal warfare early on…and that created the highly distorted collective consciousness.


16.14 Questioner: Can you name the entity that they sent here twenty-six hundred years ago… two thousand six hundred years ago?*

* The correct time frame is 3,600 years. See Ra’s statement opening session 17.

Ra: I am Ra. This entity named by your peoples, Yahweh.

Doug: Fascinating. Ra says that Orion had sent an entity 3,600 years ago and that entity was Yahweh. Confused, yet? How could the Yahweh group who were guardians of the Martians, who brought over their souls to Earth 75,000 years ago, and who were members of the positive Confederation also be the entity that Orion sent? The answer is that they were two different “Yahweh’s.”

The false-Yahweh was a fourth density Orion group who mimicked the Confederation’s Yahweh and sowed havoc and confusion with the third-density humans who, as Ra mentioned above, can’t fully see the manipulations of fourth-density negative beings. Indeed, Ra says that with Orion’s clever Yahweh disguise, they were “were able for the first time to make serious inroads upon the consciousness of the planetary complex” (18.24).

16.15 Questioner: Can you tell me the origin of the Ten Commandments?

Ra: I am Ra. The origin of these commandments follows the law of negative entities impressing information upon positively oriented mind/body/spirit complexes. The information attempted to copy or ape positivity while retaining negative characteristics.

16.16 Questioner: Was this done by the Orion group?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

16.17 Questioner: What was their purpose in doing this?

Ra: I am Ra. The purpose of the Orion group, as mentioned before, is conquest and enslavement. This is done by finding and establishing an elite and causing others to serve the elite through various devices such as the laws you mention and others given by this entity.

16.18 Questioner: Was the recipient of the laws… of the Ten Commandments positively or negatively oriented?

Ra: The recipient was one of extreme positivity, thus accounting for some of the pseudo-positive characteristics of the information received. As with contacts which are not successful, this entity, vibratory complex, Moishe, did not remain a credible influence among those who had first heard the philosophy of One and this entity was removed from this third-density vibratory level in a lessened or saddened state, having lost what you may call the honor and faith with which he had begun the conceptualization of the Law of One and the freeing of those who were of his tribes, as they were called at that time/space.

16.19 Questioner: If this entity was positively oriented, how was the Orion group able to contact him?

Ra: I am Ra. This was an intensive, shall we say, battleground between positively oriented forces of Confederation origin and negatively oriented sources. The one called Moishe was open to impression and received the Law of One in its most simple form. However, the information became negatively oriented due to his people’s pressure to do specific physical things in the third-density planes. This left the entity open for the type of information and philosophy of a self-service nature.

16.20 Questioner: It would be unlike an entity fully aware of the knowledge of the Law of One to ever say “Thou shalt not.” Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Doug: Controversial stuff to be sure. From Ra’s point of view, the Ten Commandments were not given by the Confederation Yahweh but by the False Yahweh…by Orion. Does this make the Ten Commandments negative? How do the Ten Commandments “retain negative characteristics?” How was giving the Ten Commandments an attempt by the Orion Empire to “establish an elite?” Would the other “Mosaic Laws” also be from Orion?

The following is definitely my opinion. In a sense, Orion’s hands were tied because Moses (“Moishe”) was an “extremely positive” person. Ra rarely uses such superlatives, and when they do, it is very intentional. His extreme positivity acted as a filter.

Moses was in contact with the True-Yahweh who, desiring to teach the Law of One, revealed that the Infinite Creator is the great “I AM WHO AM,” Exodus 3:14


If we put the Biblical narrative together with the above descriptions of Moses by Ra, we get a picture of a person who must have been feeling incredible tension.

He likely had been in contact with the Confederation Yahweh when he led his “tribe” (16.18) from bondage to freedom. Yahweh had been involved with the Martian people, of whom many of them became Jews, for thousands of years. In a real sense, Yahweh’s “people” were indeed, the “chosen people,” not because Yahweh desired to set up an elite group that would be superior to other people in order to lord over all, but rather to be “a light unto nations,” as mentioned in Isaiah. Yahweh’s goal in the genetic manipulations, which were seen as infringement by other members of the Confederation, was to help enhance Yahweh’s people’s ability to learn the Law of One and then to teach it to other people, following the energy of love for God and neighbor. It is kind of like a cosmic “trickle-down morals” model: create a receptor site in the field of human consciousness and then charge that receptor site with power, wisdom, and love. But if there are blockages in the receptor site, all of those gifts don’t get through to others but are stored at the top.

The Martian people in particular came to Earth with their souls already formed by their experience of third density on Mars. We know from Ra that there was a lot of bellicosity and war in that third-density experience. Where there’s war, there exists the collective mindset of “us and them”…of “we are right and you people are wrong”… of “we are separate from you.” There is certainly no emphasis on loving God and neighbor in a global sense. This does not mean that the Martian people were evil, but similarly to Earth humanity, likely were mixed in polarity, confused, and quite ensconced in the third-density illusion of separation from God, from self, and from others.

So naturally, if the Martian people were given enhancements by the Confederation Yahweh that somehow set them apart from other third-density people–given the veil of forgetting and the Martian deep-seated inclinations towards a kind of social darwinism brought over from their Mars experience–there would be a high probability that the concept of elitism would emerge and dominate. That the Yahweh group (and Ra, for that matter) could not predict this outcome just shows how truly naive these senior Confederation members were.

Back on the mountain top, Moses needed answers, and quickly! His tribe was getting restless down at the root of Mt. Sinai and demanded signs, wonders, and entitlements. Moses’ desperation, angst, anger, and frustration coupled with the genuine calling for aid (which is multiplied by the cosmic “law of squares” (ref 7.7) along the frequency or energetics of a negative-polarity nature (the demanding of signs and satisfaction, ref 12.15), allowed an opening in the quarantine-net so that Orion could slip in and become the False-Yahweh.

But as I said above, Orion’s hands were tied because Moses was “extremely positive” and that positivity shaped whatever signs and wonders that could be given by the Orion entity. To my mind, there is nothing wrong or negative about the content of the Ten Commandments. They seem solid and positive to me; necessary for harmonious communal living given their cultural-historical-social context. But perhaps the negativity that was imbued into the positive list of guidelines was conveyed by the “Thou shalt’s” and “Thou shalt not’s”. The boldness and definitiveness of these admonishments, coupled with the “fiery nature” of the “emissary [False-Yahweh] …which was hidden by the nature of cloud in the day” (24.12), solidified any doubt in the minds of Moses and his Tribe, that the Ten Commandments were straight from their god, Yahweh.

What unfolded from this miraculous occurrence (from the point of view of third density), was an emphasis on the priestly class (rabbinical class) who believed they were charged with being a mediator, interpreter, and enforcer of Yahweh’s laws. When laws are considered divine, straight from God, and when the quality of mind that metes out these laws believes that they are the elite, then a religio-cultural-hierarchy forms following the negative nature.

Furthermore, the divine god who sources these laws is believed to become wrathful when “his” people break these laws. What you have in the end would be a religious notion that God gets angry and punishes those who disobey “him” and rewards those who follow “his” laws perfectly. In other words, the better you are, the more you are worthy of God’s love. This is a religiosity based upon meritocracy. Can you see how this mindset is still very much alive at the immature levels in all religions? Perhaps this is one of the major results of those “inroads that Orion made upon the consciousness of the planetary complex” stated in session 18.24.


16.21 Questioner: Can you give me some kind of history of your social memory complex and how you became aware of the Law of One?

“Our path is graven in the present moment.”

Ra: I am Ra. The path of our learning is graven in the present moment. There is no history, as we understand your concept. Picture, if you will, a circle of being. We know the alpha and omega as infinite intelligence. The circle never ceases. It is present. The densities we have traversed at various points in the circle correspond to the characteristics of cycles: first, the cycle of awareness; second, the cycle of growth; third, the cycle of self-awareness; fourth, the cycle of love or understanding; fifth, the cycle of light or wisdom; sixth, the cycle of light/love, love/light, or unity; seventh, the gateway cycle; eighth, the octave which moves into a mystery we do not plumb.

Doug: At the advanced spiritual level of Ra, which is late sixth density (2 billion years more advanced that Earth humanity), they experience themselves and time as existing in an eternal now. This is why they say, “our path of learning is graven in the present moment.” The lessons of their sixth-density experience has much to do with learning how the alpha and omega as infinite intelligence (God) can exist simultaneously. From our point of view at the level of third-density, we can’t rationally conceive of this. Our learning is graven in the linear passage of time, which is an illusion at the absolute level, but quite real at the relative levels. Ra expounds on this notion in 16. 22, below.


16.22 Questioner: Thank you very much. In previous material, before we communicated with you, it was stated by the Confederation that there is actually no past or future… all is present. Would this be a good analogy?

Ra: I am Ra. There is past, present, and future in third density. In an overview such as an entity may have, removed from the space/time continuum, it may be seen that in the cycle of completion there exists only the present. We, ourselves, seek to learn this understanding. At the seventh level or dimension, we shall, if our humble efforts are sufficient, become one with all, thus having no memory, no identity, no past or future, but existing in the all.

16.23 Questioner: Does this mean that you would have awareness of all that is?

Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct. It is our understanding that it would not be our awareness, but simply awareness of the Creator. In the Creator is all that there is. Therefore, this knowledge would be available.

Doug: Ra admits that even in late sixth density, they are still learning the simultaneity of it all. Also, at their advanced level, the phenomenon of identity, whether personal or communal, still holds sway. Apparently, in seventh density (and eighth), the full gnosis of the One Infinite Creator comes online and identity falls away completely. My own (distorted) viewpoint is that all identities and memories accrued over billions of years of materialized existence, through the evolution of all seven densities, are not at all lost but simply collected and stored within the allness of God. From that level, seventh/eight density beings would be able to fully understand in every way how every iota of their incarnative experience from first density to seventh, was actually the One Infinite Creator experiencing Itself through them, as them (ref 30.5). Ra says as much throughout the material but at our level of reception of such concepts, we largely keep them at the head level rather than experience them fully. But, rest assured, some aspects of sixth-density gnosis (or even higher) can be experienced at the third-density level for those who seek to break through the veil and remember previously gained lessons prior to incarnation. These would not be permanent stages because our third-density bodies would not handle such perfect channeling of the higher densities for long periods of time. But certainly, one can experience temporary states of perfect union with God and absorption into Source.


16.24 Questioner: I was wondering how many inhabited planets there are in our galaxy and if they all reach higher density by the Law of One, or if there is any other way— it doesn’t seem to me that there would be any other way to reach higher density. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. Please restate your query.

16.25 Questioner: How many inhabited planets are there in our galaxy?

Ra: I am Ra. We are assuming that you intend all dimensions of consciousness or densities of awareness in this question. Approximately one-fifth of all planetary entities contain awareness of one or more densities. Some planetary spheres are hospitable only for certain densities. Your planetary sphere, for instance, is at this time hospitable to levels or densities one, two, three, and four.

Doug: Ra says that in our solar system, Venus is a 5th/6th density planet and currently hosts life for 5th density beings. Maldek hosted 3rd density until its inhabitants blew up their planet. Mars supported 3rd density life until they blew off their atmosphere. Earth can host 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th density life. “Uranus is slowly moving through the first density and has the potential of moving through all densities” (30.14).


16.26 Questioner: Well, roughly how many total planets in this galaxy of stars that we’re in have aware life regardless of density?

Ra: I am Ra. Approximately six seven, oh oh oh, oh oh oh [67,000,000].

16.27 Questioner: Can you tell me what percentage of those are third, fourth, fifth, sixth density, etc.? Roughly, very roughly.

Ra: I am Ra. A percentage seventeen for first density, a percentage twenty for second density, a percentage twenty-seven for third density, a percentage sixteen for fourth density, a percentage six for fifth density. The other information must be withheld. The free will of your future is not making this available. We shall speak on one item. There is a fairly large percentage, approximately thirty-five percent of the intelligent planets, which do not fit in the percentiles. These mysteries are of sixth and seventh density and are not available for our speaking.

Doug: How interesting that 35% of planets with inhabited awareness belongs to the sixth and seventh densities. I’m not sure why Ra can’t speak of these due to infringing upon free will.


16.28 Questioner: Well, this first five densities, have all of them progressed from third density by knowledge and application of the Law of One?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

16.29 Questioner: Then the only way for a planet to get out of the situation that we are in, or the only way for the population is to become aware of and start practicing the Law [of One]. Is this correct?

Doug: Notice here that Don is asking if the only way to move forward to fourth density (“get out of the situation that we are in”) is to become aware of and start practicing the Law of One… to see and live from a Universal Love perspective. This is heart-activation which becomes a permanent stage rather than a temporary state.

Ra: This is correct.


16.30 Questioner: Can you tell me what percentage of third-, fourth-, and fifth-density planets which you have spoken of here are negatively polarized, polarized towards service for self?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not a query to which we may speak given the Law of Confusion. We may say only that the negatively or self-service oriented planetary spheres are much fewer. To give you exact numbers would not be appropriate.

Doug: Ra exquisitely protects free will and also wants to protect the narrow band channel.

16.31 Questioner: I would like to make an analogy about why there are fewer negatively oriented and ask you if the analogy is good.

In a positively oriented society with service to others, it would be simple to move a large boulder by getting everyone to help move it. In a society oriented towards service to self, it would be much more difficult to get everyone to work on the boulder for the good of all; therefore, it is much easier to get things done to create the service-to-other principle and to grow in positively oriented communities than it is in negative. Is this correct? [Inaudible]

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Doug: Ra confirms in much later sessions that the service-to-other (STO) path is the more efficient path. We can see why here with this analogy.


16.32 Questioner: Thank you very much. Can you tell me how the Confederation of Planets was formed and why?

Ra: I am Ra. The desire to serve begins, in the dimension of love or understanding, to be an overwhelming goal of the social memory complex. Thus, those percentiles of planetary entities, plus approximately four percent more of whose identity we cannot speak, found themselves long, long ago in your time seeking the same thing: service to others. The relationship between these entities as they entered an understanding of other beings, other planetary entities, and other concepts of service was to share and continue together these commonly held goals of service. Thus, each voluntarily placed the social memory complex data in what you may consider a central thought complex available to all. This then created a structure whereby each entity could work in its own service while calling upon any other understandings needed to enhance the service. This is the cause of the formation and the manner of the working of the Confederation.

Doug: Ra says that fourth density beings, fifth density beings, and “four percent [of beings] of whose identity [they] cannot speak,” felt inspired by the cosmic Law of Service and said “yes,” to pooling their resources in order to help those calling for aid. It would be equivalent to having a huge itch on your foot that demands scratching. In order to scratch it, several “players” have to get together and coordinate the response. There would need to be your arm, hands, fingers, etc, all acting together to relieve the itch. As Ra says, “there is no ignoring a call.”

“A central thought process available to all [of the Confederation members]”


These new team players collected their resources into a central place in what amounts to a multi-dimensional super computer. Any member of the Confederation can access this unique cosmic-internet and get information or guidance in how to best help.


16.33 Questioner: With such a large number of planets in this galaxy, I was wondering if— you say there are approximately five hundred Confederation planets. That seems to me to be a relatively small percentage of the total number of fourth- and fifth-density planets around. Is there any reason for this relatively small percentage in this Confederation?

Ra: I am Ra. There are many Confederations. This Confederation works with the planetary spheres of seven of your galaxies, if you will, and is responsible for the callings of the densities of these galaxies.

16.34 Questioner: Would you define the word galaxy as you just used it?

Ra: We use that term in this sense as you would use star systems.

16.35 Questioner: I’m a little bit confused as to how many total planets then, roughly, does the Confederation that you are in serve?

Ra: I am Ra. I see the confusion. We have difficulty with your language.

The galaxy term must be split. We call galaxy that vibrational complex that is local. Thus, your sun is what we would call the center of a galaxy. We see you have another meaning for this term.

16.36 Questioner: Yes. In our science the term galaxy refers to the lenticular star system that contains millions and millions of stars, and this had occurred earlier in our communications, this area of confusion. I’m glad to get it cleared up.

Now, using the term galaxy in the sense that I just gave you, of the lenticular star system that contains millions of stars, do you know of the evolution in other galaxies besides this one?

Ra: I am Ra. We are aware of life in infinite capacity. You are correct in this assumption.

Doug: Ra has been using the word, “galaxy,” to describe what we know of as, “galaxy” and “solar system.” For Ra, a galaxy can be enormous consisting of millions of stars or can be a single star system.


16.37 Questioner: Can you tell me if the progression of life in the other galaxies is similar to progression in this one?

Ra: I am Ra. The progression is somewhat close to the same, asymptotically approaching congruency throughout infinity. The free choosing of what you call galactic systems causes variations of an extremely minor nature from one of your galaxies to another.

Doug: Each Galactic God (Logos) can offer their own nuance to the cosmic laws to give the One Infinite Creator variant experiences of Itself. Galactic Logoi hand their templates to their Sub-Logoi who then add their own “spice” to the mix.

16.38 Questioner: And then the Law of One is truly universal in creating the progression toward the eighth density or octave in all galaxies. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. There are infinite forms, infinite understandings, but the progression is one.


16.39 Questioner: I am assuming it is not necessary for an individual to understand the Law of One to go from third to fourth density. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. It is absolutely necessary that an entity consciously realize it does not understand in order for it to be harvestable. Understanding is not of this density.

Doug: Ra gave us a super important point here, even if Don wasn’t clear on his original question (see 16.40, below). Ra says that third density is not a plane of understanding, even subjectively. We can strive to live from the seat of universal love, which is important for third density, but understanding the Law of One is not possible in third density. In 16.42, Ra says that 5th density would be the level of consciousness where understanding the Law of One starts in earnest. So… this passage reminds us to remain humble on our journey. The greatest mystics I know will admit something like, “The more I know, the more I don’t know.” Indeed, wise people will say that they know that they don’t know. But I’d say that the vast majority of us don’t know that we don’t know.


16.40 Questioner: That is a very important point. I used the wrong word. What I meant to say was I believe that it was not necessary for an entity to be consciously aware of the Law of One to go from third to fourth density.

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Doug: Yes, indeed. Third-density humans need not be consciously aware of the Law of One but they unconsciously start to vibrate at the heart, green-ray, level.


16.41 Questioner: At what point in densities is it necessary for an entity to be consciously aware of the Law of One to progress?

Ra: I am Ra. The fifth-density harvest is of those whose vibratory distortions consciously accept the honor/duty of the Law of One. This responsibility/honor is the foundation of this vibration.

16.42 Questioner: Can you tell me a little more about this honor/responsibility concept?

Ra: I am Ra. Each responsibility is an honor; each honor, a responsibility.

Doug: My opinion here is that Ra is saying fifth density is a bandwidth of conscious awareness where the nuances of karma become more clearer and conceptually processed. It’s like an internship of the Law of Service that lasts millions of years where beings are in training to become senior Gardeners in sixth density. In fifth density, they: 1) learn about how to create art using light (high magical work); 2) learn how to balance the love gained in fourth density with wisdom; and 3) how the law of karma plays out in all the subtle ways. This is the beginning density of creator-hood and with that, there is a lot of responsibility.


16.43 Questioner: I want to ask a rather questionable question. I may not put it in the book. I was wondering if cattle mutilations that we now experience across the country and elsewhere could be explained by you.

Ra: I am Ra. The greater part of your so-called mutilations take place according to the ways of your second-density beings which feed upon carrion. A portion of these so-called mutilations are those which are of what you may call multi-dimensional type: a thought-form construct using various parts in order to have life and being in third density.

16.44 Questioner: Where do these thought-forms come from?

Ra: I am Ra. This is a very ambiguous question. However, we will attempt to answer. Firstly, they come from the Creator. Secondly, they come from what you may call, lower astral in plane, thought. Thirdly, in construct visualization complex they reside in part beneath the crust of your planet.

16.45 Questioner: Are these one form in particular?

Ra: I am Ra. These entities may take any thought-form associated with an emotion of fear or terror.

16.46 Questioner: Are these thought-forms able to attack only cattle or can they also attack human beings?

Ra: I am Ra. These thought-forms cannot attack third-density beings.

Doug: Don treads closely to asking about information that is too specific and negative in nature. This could jeopardize the contact and Ra knows it. This is why Ra answers in 16.44 that all thought-forms come from the Creator since there is nothing else but the Creator. This is the “Law of One.” Once Ra clarifies this point, they can then move into the energetics of the answer that pertains to the specific, negative characteristic of the question.

Ra shares that the cattle mutilations are a real phenomenon. Mostly, the mutilations are caused by second density animals hunting for food (wolves, buzzards, etc). But they share that a portion of the mutilations, especially if they are occur on symbolic parts of cattle such as their genitals and rectums, result from what we would understand as demonic beings who reside in the lower astral planes. Feeding on second density beings helps them materialize in the third density physical plane or affect change there. Ra then shares that these beings reside in vibrational zones beneath the Earth’s crust. It is interesting that lore locates “hell” under the earth. It seems that there is some truth to this.


16.47 Questioner: Thank you. Can you tell me of the silver flecks that we have found sometimes on our faces or elsewhere?

Ra: I am Ra. These of which you speak are a materialization of a subjectively oriented signpost indicating to one mind/body/spirit complex, and no other, a meaning of subjective nature.

16.48 Questioner: Who creates the silver flecks? Are they real?

Ra: I am Ra. Picture, if you will, the increasing potential for learn/teaching. At some point a sign will be given to indicate the appropriateness or importance of that learn/teaching. The entity itself, in cooperation with the inner planes, creates whatever signpost is most understandable or noticeable to it.

16.49 Questioner: You’re saying that we ourselves then create these?

Ra: I am Ra. Entities consciously do not create these. The roots of mind complex, having touched in understanding, intelligent infinity, create them.

The hawk is often a sign of spiritual synchronicity, especially to me.–Doug Esse


Doug: Ra shares that signposts and synchronicities will be presented to our conscious minds when we are in the flow of our spiritual evolution.


16.50 Questioner: Thank you. Is it possible for you to give a small description of the conditions [in] fourth density?

Ra: I am Ra. We ask you to consider as we speak that there are no words for positively describing fourth density. We can only explain what is not and approximate what is. Beyond fourth density our ability grows more limited still until we become without words.

That which fourth density is not: it is not of words, unless chosen. It is not of heavy chemical vehicles for body complex activities. It is not of disharmony within self. It is not of disharmony within peoples. It is not within limits of possibility to cause disharmony in any way.

Approximations of positive statements: it is a plane of a type of bipedal vehicle which is much denser and more full of life; it is a plane wherein one is aware of the thoughts of other-selves; it is a plane where one is aware of the vibrations of other-selves; it is a plane of compassion and understanding of the sorrows of third density; it is a plane striving towards wisdom or light; it is a plane wherein individual differences are pronounced although automatically harmonized by group consensus.

Doug: People in fourth density read each other’s thoughts, read each other’s energy, and harmony rules the day. For me, I see fourth density as the “New Jerusalem,” “The Kingdom of God,” and “Eternal Life.” The latter would be true because fourth density is the first density where the veil of forgetting is removed and a person is consciously aware that there is no death and separation between people and separation between us and God are illusions. I also believe that the social-memory-complex which forms in fourth density is the consummation of the third-density concept of “church.” For a fuller exploration of these ideas, please read: Teilhard de Chardin’s “Omega Point” is the Law of One’s “Social-Memory-Complex.”


16.51 Questioner: Could you define the word density as we have been using it to give us a little greater idea of the concept of this term when used by you?

Ra: I am Ra. The term density is a, what you would call, mathematical one. The closest analogy is that of music, whereby after seven notes on your western type of scale, if you will, the eighth note begins a new octave. Within your great octave of existence which we share with you, there are seven octaves or densities. Within each density there are seven sub-densities. Within each sub-density, seven sub-sub-densities, and so on infinitely.

16.52 Questioner: I notice that the time we have used has gone slightly over an hour. I would prefer to continue but I want to ask at this time as to the condition of the instrument.

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is in balance. It is well to continue if you desire.


16.53 Questioner: All right. Continuing with what we were just talking about, namely densities: I understand then that each density has seven sub-densities which again have seven sub-densities which again have seven sub-densities. This expands at an extremely large rate as things are increased in powers of seven. Does this mean that in any density level anything that you can think of is happening? And many things that you never thought of are happening… are there… everything is happening… this is confusing…

Ra: I am Ra. From your confusion we select the concept with which you struggle, that being infinite opportunity. You may consider any possibility/probability complex as having an existence.

16.54 Questioner: Does what we do, when we think of possibilities that can occur, say daydreaming: Do these become real in these densities?

Ra: I am Ra. This depends upon the nature of the daydream. This is a large subject. Perhaps the simplest thing we can say is, if the daydream, as you call it, is one which attracts to self, this then becomes reality to self. If it is contemplative general daydream, this may enter the infinity of possibility/probability complexes and occur elsewhere, having no particular attachment to the energy fields of the creator.

16.55 Questioner: To make this a little more clear, if I were to daydream strongly about building a ship, would this occur in one of these other densities?

Ra: I am Ra. This would, would have, or shall occur.

16.56 Questioner: And then if, say, an entity daydreams strongly about battling, let us say, another entity, would this occur?

Ra: I am Ra. In this case the entity’s fantasy concerns the self and other-self; this binds the thought-form to the possibility/probability complex connected with the self which is the creator of this thought-form. This then would increase the possibility/probability of bringing this into third-density occurrence.

Doug: Don is amazed at how vast and complex reality is. Ra affirms that any day dream you have would have an existence somewhere. Think about all of the novels that have been written. They become real phenomenon upon some plane of existence.

Ra clarifies that if someone daydreams but isn’t particularly attached to the daydream, then the thoughtform won’t be so attached to the creator. But if someone visualizes an act happening in their mind’s eye with someone else, then that thoughtform is not only attached to creator in a stronger fashion, but it enters into the spectrum of “possibility/probability” that it will come true in this plane of existence. This phenomenon likely undergirds pop-culture’s fascination with the “law of attraction.”

Along these lines, I have become aware that when I dislike someone and visualize the problems I have with them, I am creating a connection between and energizing it. Then, that thoughtform strengthens the possibility that more conflict between us will happen. Once I can catch myself thinking in negative ways, I consciously surround the person with love and light, usually by visualizing white light around them while envisioning them smiling in joy. This not only helps them out but the “blessing,” because it is attached to me as the creator, returns and gives me the same blessing. Life is just much easier to live that way.

16.57 Questioner: Does the Orion group use this principle to create conditions brought about to suit their purpose?

Ra: I am Ra. We will answer more specifically than the question. The Orion group uses daydreams of hostile or other negative vibratory natures to feed back or strengthen these thought-forms.

16.58 Questioner: Do they ever use any, shall I say, gratifications of the physical body to amplify such daydreams?

Ra: I am Ra. They are able to do this only when there is a strong ability on the part of the receiving mind/body/spirit complex towards the perception of thought-forms. This could be termed an unusual characteristic but has indeed been a method used by Orion entities.

Doug: So… be careful about thinking negatively towards others. Orion can enhance these negative thought patterns.


16.59 Questioner: The many Wanderers coming to this planet now and in the recent past— are they subject to Orion thoughts?

Ra: I am Ra. As we have said before, Wanderers become completely the creature of third density in mind/body complex. There is just as much chance of such influence to a Wanderer entity as to a mind/body/spirit complex of this planetary sphere. The only difference occurs in the spirit complex which, if it wishes, has an armor of light, if you will, which enables it to recognize more clearly that which is not as it would appropriately be desired by the mind/body/spirit complex. This is not more than a bias and cannot be called an understanding.

Furthermore, the Wanderer is, in its own mind/body/spirit complex, less distorted towards the, shall we say, deviousness of third-density positive/negative confusions. Thus, it often does not recognize as easily as a more negative individual the negative nature of thoughts or beings.

16.60 Questioner: Would then the Wanderers, as they incarnate here, be high-priority targets, shall we say, of the Orion group?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

16.61 Questioner: And if a Wanderer were to be successfully infringed upon, shall I say, by the Orion group, what would happen to this Wanderer at the harvest?

Ra: I am Ra. If the Wanderer entity demonstrated through action a negative orientation towards other-selves it would be as we have said before, caught into the planetary vibration and, when harvested, possibly repeat again the master cycle of third density as a planetary entity. This shall be the last full question of this session.

Doug: Ra makes several interesting points here. Once Wanderers incarnate they become a third-density human, “completely.” Ra mentions in session 66 that Wanderers may retain some sort very deeply imbedded memory of being able to do things in the home density that cannot be done in our third-density bodies. These things would include healing, telepathic communication, and belonging to a social-memory-complex where they felt deep union and harmony with others. Incarnating into Earth’s third-density vibratory conditions can lead to great frustration and a feeling of alienation, even if the familial environment is relatively smooth for the Wanderer now in third density.

Wanderers who begin awakening to their “star-seed” origins, realize that this internal pain is part of the price to pay to be a part of the mission for which they freely volunteered. The invitation, then, is to learn how to embrace the catalysts that deep existential pain presents as teachers of empathy and compassion towards the “quiet…horror” that the vast majority of humans feel on unconscious levels (17.23). Indeed, most Wanderers experience their ministry as being wounded healers.

Ra says that in comparison to Earth humans, Wanderers retain some qualities of the spirit part of their mind/body/spirit complex that “has an armor of light…which enables [the Wanderer] to recognize more clearly that which is not as it would appropriately be desired by the mind/body/spirit complex.” I take Ra’s statement here as meaning something akin to a preternaturally developed conscience. The Wanderer has an intuitive gnosis of what is right and wrong, what is as it should be, and what is not.

Finally, Ra says that Wanderers can get karmically entangled with others if their behaviors and intentions accord with the service-to-self path. If enough negative karma accrues, then the Wanderer looses much or most of his or her positive polarity will need to repeat the third density again as a third-density planetary human. In other words, they’ll get stuck in the violent storm that as a Wanderer, they came to help calm.

In fact, in session 89, we learn that things can even get so confusing for a Wanderer that they can even harvest to fourth density NEGATIVE and then have to work themselves out of that metaphysical hole over millions of years. This occasionally happens and Ra gave an example of two Wanderers who came to help them on Venus when they were in third density. These two Wanderers from early fifth density came into Venus’ third-density population, found each other in the darkness of the veil of forgetting, and formed a religious terrorist-type of organization. Don asks Ra what was the reaction of these two Wanderers once they had graduated to fourth density negative and suddenly became aware–due to fourth-density’s absence of the veil of forgetting–that they were now negative beings! Ra says in their characteristically understated manner, “They were disconcerted.” Disconcerted, indeed.

Is there a short question we may answer before we close the session?

16.62 Questioner: Only just know if the instrument can be any more comfortable?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is as comfortable as it is possible for you to make it given the weakness distortions of its body complex. You are conscientious.

I am Ra. I leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, then, rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Creator. Adonai.

“I leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator.”–Ra
