Law of One, Session 17: Reflections

Article by Doug Esse

This is an important session that introduces Jesus among other topics including: the Harvest, the Tunguska crater in Russia, Albert Einstein and nuclear energy, the phenomenon of spontaneous combustion, and a bit about third density.


This image is the oldest known example of “Christ Pantocrator” in the world. The different expressions shown on the right and left sides of Jesus’ face may suggest his double nature as both human and divine. It was painted on a wooden board during the 6th or 7th century and is currently preserved at the Monastery of St. Catherine on Mount Sinai, in Egypt, one of the oldest monasteries in the world.

17.0 Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of the Infinite Creator.

Before we communicate by answer we shall correct an error which we have discovered in the transmission of our information to you. We have difficulty dealing with your time/space. There may again be errors of this type. Feel free to question us that we may recalculate in your time/space measurements.

The error we have discovered concerns one of the arrivals of both the Orion group into your planetary sphere of influence and the corresponding arrival of emissaries of the Confederation. We gave dates of two six oh oh [2,600] years for the Orion entry, two three oh oh [2,300] for Confederation entry. This is incorrect. The recalculation indicates numbers three six oh oh [3,600] for Orion entry, three three oh oh [3,300] for Confederation entry.

We communicate now.

Doug: From the Ra group’s native sixth-density conditions, they don’t perceive time as we do. For them, their path is “graven in the present moment” (16.21). Ra makes a few mistakes in the material regarding dates and numbering. They are always happy to be questioned by Don if he suspects that they made a misstatement.

17.1 Questioner: Thank you very much. I wish to say again… consider it an honor, great honor, and also a privilege, as my [inaudible]. And I would like to reiterate [that my] questions may sometimes go a little off because I keep going on something that I had already started to work into the applications of the Law of One to better understand primarily the free-will principle and further distortions that we discover.

I got three questions just now in meditation. I’ll ask them first before we continue. First, we are now in the fourth density. Will the effects of the fourth density increase in the next thirty years? Will we see more changes in our environment and our effect upon our environment?

Ra: I am Ra. The fourth density is a vibrational spectrum. Your time/space continuum has spiraled your planetary sphere and your, what we would call galaxy, what you call star, into this vibration. This will cause the planetary sphere itself to electromagnetically realign its vortices of reception of the instreaming of cosmic forces expressing themselves as vibrational webs so that the Earth will thus be fourth-density magnetized, as you might call it.

This is going to occur with some inconvenience, as we have said before, due to the energies of the thought-forms of your peoples which disturb the orderly constructs of energy patterns within your Earth spirals of energy which increases entropy and unusable heat. This will cause your planetary sphere to have some ruptures in its outer garment while making itself appropriately magnetized for fourth density. This is the planetary adjustment.

Children and young people changing the world…”a new breed”

You will find a sharp increase in the number of people, as you call mind/body/spirit complexes, whose vibrational potentials include the potential for fourth-vibrational distortions. Thus, there will seem to be, shall we say, a new breed. These are those incarnating for fourth-density work.

There will also be a sharp increase in the short run of negatively oriented or polarized mind/body/spirit complexes and social complexes, due to the polarizing conditions of the sharp delineation between fourth-density characteristics and third-density self-service orientation.

Those who remain in fourth density upon this plane will be of the so-called positive orientation. Many will come from elsewhere, for it would appear that with all of the best efforts of the Confederation, which includes those from your peoples’ inner planes, inner civilizations, and those from other dimensions, the harvest will still be much less than that which this planetary sphere is capable of comfortably supporting in service.

Doug: This is a very long and important response by Ra. Ra speaks about how the Earth has moved into fourth-density energetics but our collective thought-forms that we have created over the past 75,000 years are not only solidly third-density in nature but they are of mixed polarity and act as a giant anchor that keeps from us from sailing into fourth density with ease. It’s as if the ship above moves forward while the anchor drags, pulls, and jars.

Ra says that the fetching of fourth density will come with “some inconvenience.” That’s a loaded statement, for sure. In my opinion, there are two types of “inconveniences” felt at this time: 1) our planet’s increase of temperature, earthquakes, flooding, droughts, etc; and 2) our increase of emotional divisiveness in our global population. That is a storm, too!

My opinion on climate change is a “both/and,” which I have not seen in any metaphysics forums that study esoterica, nor have I seen it with those who believe in the conventional narrative that humans alone are causing the climate change through our pollution. If we take Ra’s information as relatively undistorted, which I admit is a statement of faith, then we have a situation where our planet, indeed our entire solar system–and perhaps our entire portion of our galaxy–is moving into a location where we are bathed with a new energy that affects everything. This new energy is causing changes everywhere and even conventional science reports changes in other planets and our sun.

However, since our collective thoughtforms frustrate the instreaming of the new energy, it causes the equivalent of a planet-wide fever. As the meta-fever rises, Gaia “sweats” and “shivers” (ref 60.20). The sweating and shivering at the planetary level contribute to the intensity of the climate changes we now see.

What about pollution? Well, our pollution is the physical manifestation of our problematic mindset. And trash is manifested thoughtforms. Our trash in sea, land, and air is an outward sign of our collective inner turmoil. So, I’d say, “yes…” our polluted mindset causes our pollution in both trash and troubling thoughtforms. Both contribute to Gaia’s fever.

Lastly, Ra says that many people incarnating in our world are a “new breed”–fourth density souls helping to midwife the planetary harvest. These souls will stay on Earth as their native fourth-density planet once the harvest takes place. AND EARTH WILL BE A FOURTH DENSITY POSITIVE PLANET. I don’t trust any new age channeling or sources that say the Earth will be negative or that there is a major war going on right now for Earth’s long-term future.

Yes, there is a war between positive and negative forces that spans third and fourth densities (ref session 25), but to my mind, the fight Orion is fighting is to keep as many human souls entrapped within third-density so that we have to repeat third density elsewhere. Then, Orion can go to those worlds and keep working on the souls. For a fuller exploration of this important topic, please see my article: The Cabal’s Last Trick.

17.2 Questioner: Is it possible to help an entity to reach fourth-density level in these last days?

Ra: I am Ra. It is impossible to help another being directly. It is only possible to make catalyst available in whatever form, the most important being the radiation of realization of oneness with the Creator from the self, less important being information such as we share with you.

We, ourselves, do not feel an urgency for this information to be widely disseminated. It is enough that we have made it available to three, four, or five. This is extremely ample reward, for if one of these obtains fourth-density understanding due to this catalyst then we shall have fulfilled the Law of One in the distortion of service.

We encourage a dispassionate attempt to share information without concern for numbers or quick growth among others. That you attempt to make this information available is, in your term, your service. The attempt, if it reaches one, reaches all.

We cannot offer shortcuts to enlightenment. Enlightenment is of the moment, is an opening to intelligent infinity. It can only be accomplished by the self, for the self. Another self cannot teach/learn enlightenment, but only teach/learn information, inspiration, or a sharing of love, of mystery, of the unknown that makes the other-self reach out and begin the seeking process that ends in a moment, but who can know when an entity will open the gate to the present?

Category: Teach/Learning

Doug: These are great points by Ra. First, they tell us that we can’t make others enlightened. Converting others doesn’t work. Each person is on their unique path towards spiritual evolution and who knows what combination of ingredients are needed for each individual to break through into intelligent infinity (enlightenment). Secondly, they stress that even this material that they are giving through L/L Research is less important than providing catalysts for others to learn how to open their hearts in love and service. Thirdly, they say here and in quite a few other places in the material to not worry about the numbers of people who would be touched by their work with the Law of One. As they say, “If it reaches one, reaches all.”


Crater in Tunguska, Russia. Event happened on June 30, 1908

17.3 Questioner: In meditation a few nights ago I had the impression of a question about a crater in Russia. I believe it was in Tunguska. Can you tell me what caused the crater?

Ra: I am Ra. The destruction of a fission reactor caused this crater.

Category: Earth HistoryTunguska

17.4 Questioner: Whose reactor?

Ra: I am Ra. This was what you may call a “drone” sent by Confederation which malfunctioned. It was moved to an area where its destruction would not cause infringement upon the will of mind/body/spirit complexes. It was then detonated.

Category: Earth HistoryTunguska

17.5 Questioner: What was its purpose in coming here?

Ra: It was a drone designed to listen to the various signals of your peoples. You were, at that time, beginning work in a more technical sphere. We were interested in determining the extent and the rapidity of your advances. This drone was powered by a simple fission motor or engine as you would call it. It was not that type which you now know, but was very small. However, it has the same destructive effect upon third-density molecular structures. Thus as it malfunctioned we felt it was best to pick a place for its destruction rather than attempt to retrieve it, for the possibility/probability modes of this maneuver looked very, very minute.

Category: Earth HistoryTunguska

17.6 Questioner: Was its danger both blast and radiation?

Ra: I am Ra. There is very little radiation, as you know of it, in this particular type of device. There is radiation which is localized, but the localization is such that it does not drift with the winds as does the emission of your somewhat primitive weapons.

Category: Earth HistoryTunguska

17.7 Questioner: I believe that a[n] analysis of the trees in that area has shown a low radiation level. Is this the reason for such a low radiation level in the trees?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. The amount of radiation is very localized. However, the energy which is released is powerful enough to cause difficulties.

Category: Earth HistoryTunguska

Doug: One might wonder why the Confederation would need a physical drone to inquire about humanity’s technological advances? Aren’t there advanced beings that could monitor these things by thought? Well, yes, of course…

But Ra says that the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator consists of various groups spanning various densities. It is probable that there are secret societies on third-density earth that are a part of the Confederation. We know that there are fourth density societies in the Confederations who would still use technology. Ra says that the Confederation members are not alike but share in the desire to serve. See here from session 6:

“There are approximately fifty-three civilizations, comprising approximately five hundred planetary consciousness complexes in this Confederation. This Confederation contains those from your own planet who have attained dimensions beyond your third. It contains planetary entities within your solar system, and it contains planetary entities from other galaxies. It is a true Confederation in that its members are not alike, but allied in service according to the Law of One.”

The point, then, is that it is highly likely that one of the third density or fourth density Confederation members sent out the probe.


Wanderer, Albert Einstein.

17.8 Questioner: Then was the Confederation responsible for Earth receiving nuclear power?

Ra: I am Ra. It is a point which one cannot judge. What is cause? The basic equation which preceded this work was an equation brought through by a Wanderer dedicated to service to the planet. That this work should have become foundation for instruments of destruction was not intended and was not given.

Categories: Earth HistoryNuclear Energy/Industrial RevolutionPeopleAlbert Einstein

17.9 Questioner: Can you tell me who that Wanderer was that brought through the equation?

Ra: I am Ra. This information seems harmless as this entity is no longer of your planetary third density. This entity was named, sound vibration complex, Albert.

Categories: Earth HistoryNuclear Energy/Industrial RevolutionPeopleAlbert Einstein

Doug: We see this pattern over and over again in the Law of One material. Confederation members through direct teaching, through channeling, and through sending Wanderers keep attempting to serve Earth humanity towards their fourth-density harvest but their efforts continue to be perverted, often morphing into the exact opposite of what was intended. One example of this was the pyramids built by the Confederation in South America. These temples were intended to be used for healing and study of the Law of One for everyone, but over time, they were used by the elite to the point of human sacrifice.


17.10 Questioner: Thank you. Can you tell me who, before incarnation into this density, was the one known as Jesus of Nazareth?

Ra: I am Ra. I have difficulty with this question as it is phrased. Can you discover another form for this query?

Category: PeopleJesus

17.11 Questioner: Yes. What I meant to say was can you tell me if Jesus of Nazareth came from the Confederation before incarnation here?

Ra: I am Ra. The one known to you as Jesus of Nazareth did not have a name. This entity was a member of fifth* density of the highest level of that sub-octave. This entity was desirous of entering this planetary sphere in order to share the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible. Thus, this entity received permission to perform this mission. This entity was then a Wanderer of no name, of Confederation origins, of fifth* density, representing the fifth-density* understanding of the vibration of understanding or love.

* This should be fourth. Ra corrects the error in the next answer.

Category: PeopleJesus

17.12 Questioner: Did you say the fifth vibration was that of love? Fifth density was that of love?

Ra: I am Ra. I have made an error. The fourth-density being is that which we intended to say, the highest level of fourth density going into the fifth. This entity could have gone on to the fifth but chose instead to return to third for this particular mission. This entity was of the highest sub-octave of the vibration of love. This is fourth density.

Doug: See below for a fuller treatment of this passage and all of the Jesus’ references in session 17.


“You are speaking to Ra. There is no separation.”

17.13 Questioner: When I am communicating with you as Ra, are you at times [an] individualized entity or am I speaking to the entire complex?

Ra: I am Ra. You speak with Ra. There is no separation. You would call it a social memory complex thus indicating many-ness. To our understanding, you are speaking to an individualized portion of consciousness.

Category: Ra Contact

17.14 Questioner: Do I always speak to the same individualized portion of consciousness in each of the sessions?

Ra: I am Ra. You speak to the same entity through a channel or instrument. This instrument is at times lower in vital energy. This will sometimes hamper our proceedings. However, this instrument has a great deal of faithfulness to the task and gives whatever it has to this task. Therefore, we may continue even when energy is low. This is why we usually speak to the ending of the session due to our estimation of the instrument’s levels of vital energy.

Category: Ra Contact

Doug: To my mind, Ra is saying that “Ra” is a totally united Body made up of millions of beings in that senior sixth-density social-memory-complex. L/L Research (Carla, Don, and Jim) is communicating with the “same entity” each time they channel the Ra group. When that “same entity” speaks through the instrument, Carla, the entirety of the love, wisdom, joy, compassion, and knowledge of the whole Ra social-memory-complex is on the line; yet there is one entity figuratively holding the phone.


Spiritual people shine

17.15 Questioner: I would like to make a point clear now that I am sure of myself. People of this planet, following any religion or no religion at all, or having no intellectual knowledge of the Law of One or of anything at all, can still be harvested into the fourth density if they are of that vibration. Is this not correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. However, you will find few who are harvestable whose radiance does not cause others to be aware of their, what you may call, spirituality, the quality of the mind/body/spirit complex distortion. Thus, it is not particularly probable that an entity would be completely unknown to his immediate acquaintances as an unusually radiant personality, even were this individual not caught up in any of the distortions of your so-called religious systems.

Category: Harvest

Doug: Ra highlights here that those harvestable to fourth density will indeed have strong sense of spirituality of some sort. Family and friends would all be able to attest that their harvestable-to-fourth loved one is quite the bright light.


17.16 Questioner: When Jesus of Nazareth incarnated was there an attempt by the Orion group to discredit him in some way?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Category: PeopleJesus

17.17 Questioner: Can you tell me what the Orion group did in order to try to cause his downfall?

Ra: I am Ra. We may describe in general what occurred. The technique was that of building upon other negatively oriented information. This information had been given by the one whom your peoples called “Yahweh.” This information involved many strictures upon behavior and promised power of the third-density, service-to-self nature. These two types of distortions were impressed upon those already oriented to think these thought-forms.

Doug: This “Yahweh” was the False-Yahweh, the Orion entity, who coopted the channel between Moses and the Confederation Yahweh.

This eventually led to many challenges of the entity known as Jesus. It eventually led to one, sound vibration complex “Judas,” as you call this entity, who believed that it was doing the appropriate thing in bringing about or forcing upon the one you call Jesus the necessity for bringing in the third-density planetary power distortion of third-density rule over others.

Judas kissed Jesus on the cheek and betrayed him.

This entity, Judas, felt that, if pushed into a corner, the entity you call Jesus would then be able to see the wisdom of using the power of intelligent infinity in order to rule others. The one you call Judas was mistaken in this estimation of the reaction of the entity, Jesus, whose teach/learning was not oriented towards this distortion. This resulted in the destruction of the bodily complex of the one known as Jesus to you.

Category: PeopleJesus


17.18 Questioner: Then if the entity Jesus was fourth density and there are Wanderers on the planet today who came from fifth and sixth density, what was it that Jesus did that enabled him to be such a good healer and could these fifth- and sixth-density beings here today do the same?

Ra: I am Ra. Those who heal may be of any density which has the consciousness of the spirit. This includes third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh. The third density can be one in which healing takes place just as the others. However, there is more illusory material to understand, to balance, to accept, and to move forward from.

The gate to intelligent infinity can only be opened when an understanding of the instreamings of intelligent energy are opened unto the healer. These are the so-called Natural Laws of your local space/time continuum and its web of electromagnetic sources or nexi of instreaming energy.

Know then, first, the mind and the body. Then as the spirit is integrated and synthesized, those are harmonized into a mind/body/spirit complex which can move among the dimensions and which can open the gateway to intelligent infinity, thus healing self by light and sharing that light with others.

True healing is simply the radiance of the self causing an environment in which a catalyst may occur which initiates the recognition of self, by self, of the self-healing properties of the self.

Categories: HealingPeopleJesus

Doug: Indeed, Ra states here and in other places throughout the material that the self heals the self. Other “healers” can be catalysts for the self healing the self. Visualizing healing can be effective. I also use green light and wrap the person or the area of the body with emerald green light/love. For further exploration of green light and healing, see 73.17.


17.19 Questioner: How did Jesus learn this during his incarnation?

Ra: I am Ra. This entity learned the ability by a natural kind of remembering at a very young age. Unfortunately, this entity first discovered his ability to penetrate intelligent infinity by becoming the distortion you call “angry” at a playmate. This entity was touched by the entity known as Jesus to you and was fatally wounded.

Thus the one known as Jesus became aware that there dwelt in him a terrible potential. This entity determined to discover how to use this energy for the good, not for the negative. This entity was extremely positively polarized and remembered more than most Wanderers do.

Jesus “was learned enough to be a rabbi at a very young age.” Jesus teaches in the Temple at age 12. (Luke 2:39-52)


17.20 Questioner: How did this aggressive action against a playmate affect Jesus in his spiritual growth? Where did he go after his physical death?

Ra: I am Ra. The entity you call Jesus was galvanized by this experience and began a lifetime of seeking and searching. This entity studied first day and night in its own religious constructs which you call Judaism and was learned enough to be a rabbi, as you call the teach/learners of this particular rhythm or distortion of understanding, at a very young age.

At the age of approximately thirteen and one-half of your years, this entity left the dwelling place of its earthly family, as you would call it, and walked into many other places seeking further information. This went on sporadically until the entity was approximately twenty-five, at which time it returned to its family dwelling, and learned and practiced the art of its earthly father.

When the entity had become able to integrate or synthesize all experiences, the entity began to speak to other-selves and teach/learn what it had felt during the preceding years to be of an worthwhile nature. The entity was absolved karmically of the destruction of an other-self when it was in its last portion of lifetime and spoke upon what you would call a cross saying, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” In forgiveness lies the stoppage of the wheel of action, or what you call karma.

Category: PeopleJesus


17.21 Questioner: Then [in] which density does the entity known as Jesus now reside?

Ra: I am Ra. This information is harmless though unimportant. This entity studies now the lessons of the wisdom vibration, the fifth density, also called the light vibration.

Category: PeopleJesus

Doug: It is my belief that Jesus, as a fifth-density being, is very much still connected with our third-density humanity.


Fourth-density beings welcoming humans to fourth density.

17.22 Questioner: In our culture there is a great saying that he will return. Can you tell me if this is planned?

Ra: I am Ra. I will attempt to sort out this question. It is difficult. This entity became aware that it was not an entity of itself but operated as a messenger of the One Creator whom this entity saw as love. This entity was aware that this cycle was in its last portion and spoke to the effect that those of its consciousness would return at the harvest.

The particular mind/body/spirit complex you call Jesus is, as what you would call an entity, not to return except as a member of the Confederation occasionally speaking through a channel. However, there are others of the identical congruency of consciousness that will welcome those to the fourth density. This is the meaning of the returning.

“Jehoshua” Is the Incarnated Version of the Confederation’s Mission For Earth’s Third Density.

Doug: The following mini-essay is my best speculation. Pulling from the Ra contact, Q’uo, and other sources, I believe Jesus was an advanced fourth-density Wanderer who desired to perform his mission to reveal how the nature of the One Infinite Creator is Love. His mission was part of a much larger Confederation-wide endeavor to organically sprout up and out of the soil of the galaxy’s most complex third-density experience. This emergence was strategically planned to occur right at the beginning of our planet’s last minor cycle (2,100 years) of the Master Cycle (75,000 years). This multi-thousand year mission which comes into full revelation through the Jesus Event includes the following:

  1. To help Earth’s humanity–the motley crew that we are–polarize to harvestable levels so that we could move on to fourth density.
  2. To literally show humanity how to become harvestable through forgiving others, serving others, healing ministry, and relating to the Creator as a loving “parent” rather than a wrathful Zeus-like deity (“abba” Mark 14:36).
  3. To make visible the hidden nature of the One Infinite Creator and to provide humanity a visible icon of the One Infinite Creator.

Ra says that Jesus realized that he was not an “entity of [himself] but operated as a messenger of the One Creator…” (17.22). What was the message that Jesus was delivering? Jesus’ own life and teachings, death, resurrection, and ascension was the embodiment of a cosmic download in order to make visible for all to see how love is the nature of the One Infinite Creator. And what is love? Love is the dynamic force emanating from Creator’s one life that is eternally expressed in and through an infinite creation. Love individuates, love unifies, and love evolves through the cycles of dying and rising. Love transforms everything and love is the transformation, itself.

The Confederation’s mission and message was grounded in the person of Jehoshua.


Furthermore, the grounding of the Confederation’s message in our planet’s third density through Jesus’ incarnation allowed for the transmission of Confederation aid via a medium that was more efficacious than channeling, individual inspiration, dreams, and Confederation appearances. By incarnating the Confederation’s message in a single human life, Earth humanity was given an appropriate third-density presentation of the nature of love’s dynamism. This dynamism translated into a philosophy tailored to Earth’s humanity, and found in all of Earth’s mystical spiritual lineages has been called the Perennial Philosophy.

Aldous Huxley

Author Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) gives a succinct definition of the Perennial Philosophy:

  • That there is a Godhead or Ground, which is the unmanifested principle of all manifestation.
  • That the Ground is both transcendent [beyond] and immanent [indwelling].
  • That it is possible for human beings to love, know, and virtually to become actually identified with the Ground.
  • That to achieve this unitive knowledge, to realize this supreme identity, is the final end and purpose of human existence.
  • That there is a Law or Dharma, which must be obeyed, a Tao or Way, which must be followed, if [humans] are to achieve their final end.

If this definition sounds like the Law of One, then you’re right! The Law of One as the Perennial Philosophy, has been taught in all cultures throughout the ages. What the Jesus Event did was to, in part, nuance this Perennial Philosophy to make it Earth specific that takes into account the complexities of having a conglomerate of highly heterogenous third-density beings together in one third-density experience.

These nuances of the Perennial Philosophy authored by the Jesus Event included these aspects:

  • The Infinite Creator is intimately personal (ref sessions 24.17, 39.6, 53.9, 90.21).
  • To love is to serve because the Cosmic primal distortions “Free Will” plus “Love” result in the Law of Service (ref 7.2 and 14.18).
  • The Creator suffers our pain and hears the cries for aid. The Confederation, along with the angelics, inner planes entities, and Guardians from the octave above our own, comprise the cosmic agents or instruments by which the Creator aids our section of the galaxy (ref 51.1). There is no ignoring a call for all is a part of One Body (ref Law of One sessions 7.7, 14.18, see also Psalm 34, 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4:4, Ephesians 4:16, Romans 12:4-5). In fact, the Confederation call themselves the “Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow,” because they deeply feel our own pain and identify with us in radical solidarity. God-As-Them suffers and rejoices with God-As-Us.
  • The Creator as Love serves Earth’s third-density humanity by rescuing (saving) it from “death” (read: having to continuously repeat the lessons of third density). “Yahweh” means “He Comes” and “Jehoshua” means “Yahweh Saves.” In other words, “Jesus” means “God-as-Love Comes and Rescues.” Maybe this is the reason why Paul in his letter to the Philippians said that the title/name, “Jehoshua” is “above all other names?” (ref Philippians 2:9-11). This statement is not meant to be imperialistic but rather it is the cosmic title of the Confederation’s own mission on Earth. And that title is more a verb than a noun. It has power before time and space (ref 74.17).
  • The Creator reveals the greatest obstacle (read “sin”) that blocks harvestability to fourth density: The Scapegoat Mechanism. Simply put, the Scapegoat Mechanism is when we point fingers at others, both individuals and groups, and blame them for all of the troubles. Sociologists tell us that the Scapegoat Mechanism is the mostly widely found cultural phenomenon in history. The image of the Crucified Jesus is supposed to shock us into seeing how we scapegoat (blame) even Love, Itself, for the sake of our own egos, status quo, and security.

I believe the entire canon of the Bible, both the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Scriptures is, in a sense, an allegory of Earth humanity’s journey from the beginning of third density all the way to entering the fourth density. It mirrors the spiritual evolution of the individual seeker where we are born into the thickness of duality and progress slowly…three steps forwards…two steps back…three steps forward…two steps back….into a more nondual way of seeing and living. This same pattern is found for the collective, too. The biblical cannon tracks human consciousness growth from the tribal levels of third density right up to the door steps of a universal family. This would be fourth density and it is the “New Jerusalem” or the “Kingdom of God,” as longed for by Jesus, the Confederation, adepts, Wanderers, and all people of good will.

By the end of the New Testament, we see that duality is actually overcome. There is no more duality because Jesus himself assumes the great archetype of the scapegoat. This may be the meaning of, “For our sake, [God] made [Jesus] to be sin who knew no sin…” (2 Corinthians 5:21) because scapegoating is the primary “sin” or archetypal way of seeing the world within third density. This is so because in third density, under the veil of forgetting, we live in a world of separation. We feel separate from the Creator and from each other, indeed, from all of creation.

The Creator, through the Confederation–who through Jesus–takes on the actual archetype of the scapegoat on the cross and does not fight back. By doing so, Jehoshua transforms the entire tit-for-tat worldview that exists in the third density ethos and shows a new way. That way is kenosis, or the path of self-emptying and self-surrender.

In this way, the human who follows Jesus’ path of love and service, sacrifice and healing, forgiveness and speaking truth to power, will activate the heart much more quickly. When we desire to follow Jesus more, we activate the cosmic Law of Doubling, which powerfully galvanizes spiritual growth for the individual and the collective. (ref 7.7, 10.14).

We will be doing our inner work and living in solidarity with the marginalized and this will help us not to scapegoat or lay the entire blame upon anybody else including the powers that be. This kind of inner work can only happen within the activated heart. People will be able to seek justice without becoming egoically attached to the outcome. People can set boundaries without needing to judge another—or, accuse another—of being less than our “us.”

There are accounts of Jesus living in India

In order for Jehoshua to fulfill his mission–which as his name implies–IS the Confederation’s mission (“The Creator comes and rescues”), he had to “remember more than most Wanderers do” (17.19). He grew and spiritual deepened throughout a unique childhood which included studying many mystical and inner wisdom traditions from various cultures (ref 17.20).

He spent several years as a young adult assimilating all that he had learned and discerning who he was, before launching out to directly engage the ethos of the Earth’s third density; an ethos that would kill him in three years (ref 17.20).

But upon the cross, “God-Comes-and-Rescues” forgave his killers which not only “absolved [Jesus] karmically of the destruction of a [childhood playmate]” but also modeled for all of humanity how forgiveness stops the wheel of karma (17.20). His words, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do,” invite all of us to do the same in our lives. And through forgiveness–which can only be effectively accomplished from an activated heart center–third-density humanity moves from the ethos of scapegoating (the “sin of the world” John 1:29) to universal love, which is the plane of the fourth density..

Thus, we are freed from death (repeating third density under the veil of forgetting) and given eternal life (positive fourth density is a condition of harmony, love, and unitive consciousness with all things, especially the Creator).

Indeed, like the 150 South American entities who were harvestable at the end second major cycle (25,000 years ago), humanity will experience the beatific vision “of the oneness and infinity of all creation…and the beauties of love as lived” (22.12). And this has been the mission of the Confederation for 75,000 years which incarnated and was embodied by a “Wanderer with no name [of his own], of Confederation origins…” who desired to share with the world that the One Infinite Creator is Love (ref 17.11).

Jehoshua, or “God Comes and Rescues,” carried the Confederation’s mission in his very name, and voiced the Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow’s great longing when he said, “”I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning!” (Luke 12:49) The Confederation, and Jesus’s yearning for this consummation is the One Infinite Creator’s own urgent longing! (ref. 39.6)

That fire is the burning love that ignites hearts right into fourth density living.


17.23 Questioner: You spoke of the alleviation of karma being forgiveness. Are… are… I’m having a hard time phrasing this question. I think I’ll have to come back to it. I’ll ask this other question. Can you tell me why the Earth will be fourth-density positive instead of fourth-density negative after the cycle is complete since it seems that there is a greater negative population?

Ra: I am Ra. The Earth seems to be negative. That is due to the quiet, shall we say, horror which is the common distortion which those good or positively oriented entities have towards the occurrences which are of your space/time present. However, those oriented and harvestable in the ways of service to others greatly outnumber those whose orientation towards service to self has become that of harvestable quality.

Category: Harvest

Doug: Ra’s answer harkens back to session 16.6 when they say that the orientation of our collective “social complex” is somewhat negative. Ra affirms here that people on the positive path “greatly outnumber” the service-to-self folks. Yet most people at the time of the Ra contact weren’t polarized enough for fourth density love and light. That’s changing, hopefully.



17.24 Questioner: In other words there will be fewer negative entities being harvested into fourth density than there will be positive. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. The great majority of your peoples will repeat third density.

Category: Harvest

17.25 Questioner: How did Taras Bulba, Genghis Khan, and Rasputin get harvested prior to the harvest?

Ra: I am Ra. It is the right/privilege/duty of those opening consciously the gate to intelligent infinity to choose the manner of their leaving of the density. Those of negative orientation who so achieve this right/duty most often choose to move forward in their learn/teaching of service to self.

Category: PeopleTaras Bulba, Genghis Khan, Rasputin

Doug: In other words, those on the service-to-self path who harvest will not choose to come back as Wanderers to help other people. They want to get out of third density and into negative fourth density to continue competing in the pecking order for millions of years to come (ref 62.16). They find “pain, the suffering of others, and the examinations of the perversities of nature” delicious (19.17).


17.26 Questioner: Is this the reason for what we call spontaneous combustion?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not correct.

Category: MiscellaneaSpontaneous Combustion

17.27 Questioner: Can you tell me what causes that phenomenon?

Ra: I am Ra. Picture, if you will, a forest. One tree is struck by lightning. It burns. Lightning does not strike elsewhere. Elsewhere does not burn. There are random occurrences which do not have to do with the entity, but with the window phenomenon of which we spoke.

Category: MiscellaneaSpontaneous Combustion

Doug: Is Ra saying that spontaneous combustion is a product of the quarantine set up the Guardians in some way? I don’t know.

17.28 Questioner: Are these particular entities all uniquely the same, or are they just random entities?

Ra: I am Ra. The latter is correct.

Category: MiscellaneaSpontaneous Combustion


17.29 Questioner: Am I to understand that the harvest will occur in the year 2011, or will it be spread?

Ra: I am Ra. This is an approximation. We have stated we have difficulty with your time/space. This is an appropriate probable/possible time/space nexus for harvest. Those who are not in incarnation at this time will be included in the harvest.

Category: Harvest

Doug: My best guess based on some references in Q’uo (click here for reference) is that the harvest to fourth density will occur within two incarnations or so. That’s about 160 years, give or take.


17.30 Questioner: Well, if an entity wants to learn ways of it, wants to be of service to others rather than service to self while he is in this third density, are there best ways of being of service to others, or is any way just as good as any other way?

Ra: I am Ra. The best way to be of service to others has been explicitly covered in previous material. We will iterate briefly.

The best way of service to others is the constant attempt to seek to share the love of the Creator as it is known to the inner self. This involves self knowledge and the ability to open the self to the other-self without hesitation. This involves, shall we say, radiating that which is the essence or the heart of the mind/body/spirit complex.

Speaking to the intention of your question, the best way for each seeker in third density to be of service to others is unique to that mind/body/spirit complex. This means that the mind/body/spirit complex must then seek within itself the intelligence of its own discernment as to the way it may best serve other-selves. This will be different for each. There is no best. There is no generalization. Nothing is known.

Category: Service to Others

Doug: Each person is unique with their own gifts! Each person has so much to offer the world and if they are here on Earth at this time, then that means that they “made the cut,” as it were, to be allowed to incarnate right at the cusp of Earth’s movement into fourth density. Ra says that only those souls who have a reasonable chance at polarizing to harvestable levels are here now (17.43).


17.31 Questioner: Thank you very much. I don’t wish to take up extra time by asking questions over again. Some are so important I try to ask some similar questions in different ways to expand on the answer. Seems to be [inaudible] what we’re getting at, maybe not.

In the book Oahspe it states that if an individual is more than fifty percent for others— that is, goes over the 50% service to others, and is less than fifty percent for service to self, then he is harvestable. Is this a correct statement?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct if the harvesting is to be for the positive fourth dimensional level.

Category: Harvest


17.32 Questioner: What must be the entity’s percentage, shall we say, if he is to be harvested for the negative?

Ra: I am Ra. The entity who wishes to pursue the path of service to self must attain a grade of five, that is five percent service to others, ninety-five percent service to self. It must approach totality. The negative path is quite difficult to attain harvestability upon and requires great dedication.

Category: Harvest

17.33 Questioner: Why is the negative path so much more difficult a path to attain harvestability upon than the positive?

Ra: I am Ra. This is due to a distortion of the Law of One which indicates that the gateway to intelligent infinity be a gateway at the end of a strait and narrow path as you may call it. To attain fifty-one percent dedication to the welfare of other-selves is as difficult as attaining a grade of five percent dedication to other-selves. The, shall we say, sinkhole of indifference is between those two.

Category: Harvest

Doug: These are very important points and it is here in the material that we learn the percentages for harvestability. For fourth density positive, a person must dedicate themselves to the welfare of others at least 51%. To my mind this is 51% heart-energy-center activation.

To graduate into fourth density negative, a service-to-self individual must block the heart at least 95% of the time. That is, nearly all of the endeavors that this person does are in the service of their own advancement over others. This is truly sociopathic and narcissistic behavior at the extreme.

But notice that Ra says that to achieve 51% percent service to others and 95% service to self is EQUALLY difficult. In other words, it is just as hard to open the heart and live from there 51% of the time versus closing it altogether.

Can you think of why this might be the case?


17.34 Questioner: Well, then if an entity is harvested into fourth density with a grade, let’s say, of fifty-one percent for others, forty-nine percent for self, what level of the fourth density would he go into? I’m assuming there are different levels of the fourth density.

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. Each enters the sub-density which vibrates in accordance with the entity’s understanding.

Category: Harvest

17.35 Questioner: How many levels do we have here in the third density at this time?

Ra: I am Ra. The third density has an infinite number of levels.

Category: Third Density

17.36 Questioner: I’ve heard that there are seven astral and seven devachanic primary levels. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. You speak of some of the more large distinctions in levels in your inner planes. That is correct.

Category: Third Density

17.37 Questioner: Well, who inhabit the astral and who inhabit the devachanic planes?

Ra: I am Ra. Entities inhabit the various planes due to their vibrational nature. The astral plane varies from thought-forms in the lower extremities to enlightened beings who become dedicated to teach/learning in the higher astral planes.

In the devachanic planes, as you call them, are those whose vibrations are even more close to the primal distortions of love/light.

Beyond these planes there are others.

Category: Third Density

17.38 Questioner: Well, does each… does… this is difficult. Our physical plane: Are there seven sub-planes to what we call our physical plane here?

Ra: I am Ra. You are correct. This is difficult to understand. There are an infinite number of planes. In your particular space/time continuum distortion there are seven sub-planes of mind/body/spirit complexes. You will discover the vibrational nature of these seven planes as you pass through your experiential distortions, meeting other-selves of the various levels which correspond to the energy influx centers of the physical vehicle.

The invisible, or inner, third-density planes are inhabited by those who are not of body complex natures such as yours; that is, they do not collect about their spirit/mind complexes a chemical body. Nevertheless these entities are divided in what you may call an artificial dream within a dream into various levels. In the upper levels, desire to communicate knowledge back down to the outer planes of existence becomes less, due to the intensive learn/teaching which occurs upon these levels.

Category: Third Density

Doug: Ra tells us that third density has an infinite number of planes. In our reality (space/time, third density), we will resonate with those who “vibrate” at the frequency we do. Like knows like and deep calls unto deep (ref Palms 42:7).

In the astral planes, or what Cynthia Bourgeault calls the “Imaginal Realms,” there are also infinite number of “frequencies,” as it were. The lowest planes would be populated by negative thoughtforms and the demonic. Orion would make use of these realms, as we will see in later sessions (ref 43.6-7). The highest planes in third density would include angelics and other beings, including enlightened humans, who no longer desire or need to reincarnate into third density. These would be the “Ascended Masters,” perhaps.


17.39 Questioner: Then is it necessary to penetrate one plane at a time as we move from what we call third-density physical through these planes?

Ra: I am Ra. It has been our experience that some penetrate several planes at one time. Others penetrate them slowly. Some in eagerness attempt to penetrate the higher planes before penetrating the energies of the so-called lower or more fundamental planes. This causes energy imbalance.

You will find ill health, as you call this distortion, to frequently be the result of a subtle mismatch of energies in which some of the higher energy levels are being activated by the conscious attempts of the entity while the entity has not penetrated the lower energy centers or sub-densities of this density.

Category: Energy Centers

Doug: This is good advice from Ra. First, everyone progresses spiritually at their own pace. There is no perfect pace nor perfect path. Secondly, it is imperative that a person try to not go too fast. I’ve made this mistake and it has lead me to some highly anxious times. While it is true that spiritual awakening is always a mixture of ecstasy and anxiety, many problems could be mitigated if one grounds themselves in some sort of contemplative or meditative practice in order to deepen what is learned before moving on.


17.40 Questioner: Is there a best way to meditate?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Category: Meditation


17.41 Questioner: At this time, near the end of the cycle, how are reincarnations into the physical allocated, shall I say, on this planet? In our own [inaudible].

Ra: I am Ra. Entities wishing to obtain critically needed experience in order to become harvestable are incarnated with priority over those who will, without too much probable/possible doubt, need to re-experience this density.

Category: Harvest

17.42 Questioner: How long has this been going on, this type of allocation?

Ra: I am Ra. This has been going on since the first individual entity became conscious of its need to learn the lessons of this density. This was the beginning of what you may call a seniority by vibration.

Category: Harvest

17.43 Questioner: Can you explain what you mean by a seniority by vibration?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the final question of this session of working.

The seniority by vibration is the preferential treatment, shall we say, which follows the ways of the Law of One which encourages harvestable individuals, each individual becoming aware of the time of harvest and the need on a self-level to bend mind, body, and spirit towards the learn/teaching of these lessons, is given priority in order that this entity may have the best possible chance, shall we say, of succeeding in this attempt.

May we ask at this time if there are any questions?

Category: Harvest

Doug: It is true that in the spiritual life, the more one has, the more one gets. The stronger the seeking, the faster the pace and the more lessons one can learn. Ra says that each person will set their own schedule for their self-learning. The vibration of the frequency of conscious awareness of person signals what lessons they are ready for. Most are still learning third-density lessons. Some are ready for fourth density.


17.44 Questioner: My only question is there anything we can do to make the instrument [inaudible]?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is not wearing the appropriate apparel for this work. As inpourings occur in the regions of the, what you may call, seventh chakra as you speak of these energy centers, filtering through the sixth and so forth, the entity’s other or base chakras become somewhat de-energized. Thus, this entity should be more careful in its selection of warm apparel for the part of the body complex you call the feet.

May we answer any other brief questions?

Category: Ra Contact

17.45 Questioner: Just— we want to put heavier clothing on the feet. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

I will leave this instrument now, I leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Adonai.

  1. Finally got a chance to read one. Nice! I think this helpfully ties Christ into the Law of One. I appreciate that wherever you are aware or making an inference or a guess, you note it as such. Good teach/learning. 🙂


  2. Hello Doug, I read through the material and it is truly an awesome compilation. Especially the clarification of scapegoating as being the primal corporate sin of human society – greatly affecting individual trajectories. Then how Jesus addressed this in his ministry and on the cross.  Something has been bothering me about the Law of One. It explains a lot – filling in gaps or holes in our religious and philosophical structures. If God splintered a part himself into many individual souls and authored individual experiences whereby souls are drawn to and ultimately return to Unity – then many learning experiences are accumulated (the records). Apparently the spark of God exists in everyone wherever they are on the scale of densities. This would include those who are negatively polarized and perform great evil. While they are torturing their fellow humans God is right there inside of them – observing all thoughts and emotions – but not necessarily intervening to prohibit the evil. At the same time the positively are allocated tremendous growth experiences because of the evil – and the positively polarized would likely not achieve this growth had the evil not been there in the first place. I’m reminded of the scripture which says ‘God is light and in him there is no darkness’.  And “Love is the nature of the One Infinite Creator”. Then the question arises – does God have a dark side – as it seems all humans do?   Star Wars  espouses a light and dark side of the force.Light ultimately winning over darkness and the converted darkness returning to the unity of Love. Then the disturbing thought arises that God himself is learning from the agency of evil as he exists within the evil agents themselves. Does all Creation need what we consider evil in order to evolve? And in that respect would not evil be part of God’s Creation – although evil is only perpetuated in the context of individual free will? I know these questions are pretty dark and I appreciate your giving them some consideration time permitting. Yours, Rick   


  3. Thanks so much, Richard. I’m honored that you’d read the post and to provide feedback and questions. i love how you are processing these cosmic things. The best way I know how to respond to your good questions would be to say that the verse, “God is light and in him there is no darkness,” would be to say in LOO terms that the Infinite Creator is unity, Itself, and in him there is no separation. Truly, people speak of there being 2 paths and in a way that’s true, but I’d say that the “positive” path is the only path and that “negative” path is a divergence from this one path (of unity). So, if you like, I don’t chart the positive path and negative paths as a “Y” where you have two paths moving off in different directions, but rather, I see the journey as a “P.” The stem of the letter is the one path and for those on the “positive” path, they just stay the course. For those on the negative path, they loop around and eventually they have to reconnect to the one true path of unity because if they don’t, they cannot progress. Indeed, for the negative 6th density entity, their way forward on the negative path (to choose a spiritual move that enhances the self) is ironically to flip into the path of all. But as to your comparison to Star Wars, in a way this is true. Once the the Logoi many billions of years ago figured out the concept of the veil of forgetting and placed it between the conscious and unconscious for the third density experience, the potential for negative thoughtforms appeared on the scene. Over billions of years, these negative thoughtforms, following the laws of metaphysics, emerged into structuring so that a kind of negative hierarchy formed. From the gravity well of negativity, we find that entities choose to enter and exist there as a means of progressing. Up to a certain density level, the negative and positive “sides of the force,” with the force being Intelligent Energy, play off of each other given that each human operates from free will. That is, there is a balance given to Earth of both light and dark so that people can choose which to follow. However, since falsity, separation, and the negative path are not objectively real in the sense of the absolute, because that would be impossible if all things are objectively part of the same “Body,” then eventually that path has to come to an end. And Ra says that that end happens in the lower levels of 6th density, which as we are told by them, is the density of unity. For a further exploration of these things, I would invite you to read two of my articles; and The latter article has a good graphic that shows the “P,” as I conceive it.
