Contemplating the Law of One In a Conscious Fashion Starts Now

By Doug Esse

The following is my reflection upon these quotes from Ra in the Law of One:

11.26 Questioner: How was Tesla’s work supposed to benefit man on Earth, and what were its purposes?

Ra: I am Ra. The most desired purpose of the mind/body/spirit complex, Nikola, was the freeing of all planetary entities from darkness. Thus, it attempted to give to the planet the infinite energy of the planetary sphere for use in lighting and power.

11.27 Questioner: By freeing the planetary entities from darkness, precisely what do you mean?

Ra: I am Ra. [Ra’s reply was not able to be transcribed due to tape recorder malfunction. Following is the gist of their response.] We intended to speak of freeing those of your planet from literal darkness.

11.28 Questioner: Would this freeing from darkness be commensurate with the Law of One, or does this have any real product?

Ra: I am Ra. The product of such a freeing would create two experiences.

Firstly, the experience of no need to find the necessary emolument for payment, in your money, for energy.

Secondly, the leisure afforded, thereby exemplifying the possibility and enhancing the probability of the freedom to then search the self for the beginning of seeking the Law of One.

Few there are working physically from daybreak to darkness, as you name them, upon your plane who can contemplate the Law of One in a conscious fashion.


This last line by Ra often elicits responses from Law of One students who blame negative entities for our plight. This was my response to a recent FB post upon Ra’s quote and the ensuing comments of anger at negative entities:

I’d say that few can realize that the spiritual life is embedded right in the present moment.

But it is not that case that having a job or working hard has to be the big impediment to contemplate the Law of One in a conscious fashion.

Right before the session from which this Ra quote comes, Ra says in 10.14 that “the moment contains love […]”. Indeed, Ra underscores that consciously realizing that the moment contains love is the “most nearly centered and usable” lesson in third density.

Under the rubric of “Exercise One,” Ra lays out the most effective way to seek the Law of One in a conscious way and the more that we seek, the more our seeking results in finding the Creator within us and our life situations. As one opens more and more to the reality of the love embedded within the present moment, the more Exercise 2-4 become experiential knowledge.

Therefore, to lay the blame at negative entities for creating a world where working hard is necessary seems like it may be a good way to avoid doing the one central thing that Ra says we should do. To me, the heart of the Law of One material is helping us third density beings learn how to love what is, right here, right now, in and as our life situations.

Waiting around for ideal environmental conditions to be able to contemplate the Law of One in a conscious fashion often fosters anger, frustration, and tendencies to project these things upon another and blame that “other” for our struggle to do the inner work. Doing this often leads to bellicose attitudes which, Ra tells us, continues the same vibratory conditions that necessitate returning to third density to learn more about the lessons of love.

Just my thoughts.


Questioner: For general development of the reader of this book, could you state some of the practices or exercises to perform to produce an acceleration toward the Law of One?

Ra: I am Ra.

Exercise One. This is the most nearly centered and usable within your illusion complex. The moment contains love. That is the lesson/goal of this illusion or density. The exercise is to consciously seek that love in awareness and understanding-distortions. The first attempt is the cornerstone. Upon this choosing rests the remainder of the life-experience of an entity. The second seeking of love within the moment begins the addition. The third seeking powers the second, the fourth powering or doubling the third. As with the previous type of empowerment, there will be some loss of power due to flaws within the seeking in the distortion of insincerity. However, the conscious statement of self to self of the desire to seek love is so central an act of will that, as before, the loss of power due to this friction is inconsequential.

Exercise Two. The universe is one being. When a mind/body/spirit complex views another mind/body/spirit complex, see the Creator. This is an helpful exercise.

Exercise Three. Gaze within a mirror. See the Creator.

Exercise Four. Gaze at the creation which lies about the mind/body/spirit complex of each entity. See the Creator.

The foundation or prerequisite of these exercises is a predilection towards what may be called meditation, contemplation, or prayer. With this attitude, these exercises can be processed. Without it, the data will not sink down into the roots of the tree of mind, thus enabling and ennobling the body and touching the spirit.

  1. Doug, I have been focusing more lately on A Course in Miracles than LOO – not because one if better or contains more or less truth – it’s just the way I am choosing right now. I consider both to be invaluable, enlightening sources of truth; both emphasizing the Law of One, even if they use different words.

    That said, my personal “striving” these days is to simply allow myself to be love. My guideposts are:
    1) make all my choices out of love, or at least not out of fear.
    2) If anything disturbs my peace, I seek another way of perceiving the situation that I might recognize the love in the moment (to borrow terminology from THIS piece)
    3) Perceive the creator in all things – in the earth, in people, in relationships.

    I am peacefully comfortable with this approach, although I recognize and acknowledge that “practice makes perfect” – ergo, if I understand correctly – RA’s “seeking of love” choices compound each other.

    I have also been exploring the possibility of constant rejuvenation of the physical body at a cellular level simply by avoiding fear and seeking love – another way, of course, of wording the principles that you illustrate from the RA material.
    Choose love, perpetuate light, free the world from darkness. It’s all one eternal round, is it not? And ultimately so simple.


  2. Hi! I love your heart! The only thing that I would add, but this could be just me, is this: we can’t “avoid” fear in third density. Perhaps very few can, but most of us will have the experience of fear. Fear is not bad nor negative. Fear is a part of the third-density experience and can be a wonderful catalyst for us to do some internal work. I am aware that the Bible supposedly states some form of “Be Not Afraid,” at least 365 times between the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Scriptures. However, I understand from some scriptural scholars that the sentiment of that oft-repeated phrase could better be understand by our contemporary mindset as, “Do not be afraid of being afraid.” This makes more sense to me. It seems more integrated in some way. Even Jesus was clearly feeling a lot of emotion in the Garden of Gethsemane before his murder upon the cross. What emotion was he feeling? Just like the rest of us would feel in that situation, I bet it was fear… and lots of it. Does this mean that his vibes were substantially lowered and that he must have not been enlightened because he felt fear? I don’t think so. For me, the question isn’t if Jesus felt fear but rather modeled for us his perseverance and fidelity to the call he felt *despite* the fear. In a way, he offered up his fear as a holy “sacrifice” as a way to surrender himself more into his understanding of the Creator’s will for him. Sacrifice means “to make holy.” Something, whether an object or an emotion, cannot be “made” to be holy because it already ontologically is supremely holy given that all things are the Creator experiencing itself. Yet, as third-density self-aware entities, when we name something as holy, when we proclaim something’s inherent holiness, when we recognize the holiness of something, we working in some way from the indigo center (see Ra quote below). Our act of proclaiming a thing’s holiness gives glory to God because it complete’s a circle of the Alpha and Omega. Alpha is the Creator as Creator and Omega is the Creator as you; and when you or I awaken in a moment enough to offer something up to the Creator as a sacrifice, we crystalize that energy loop which begins “up there” with the Creator (Alpha), flows “down to” us, (Omega) and through us, back to the Creator. Thus, we *actualize* Omega’s return to Alpha through our conscious offering of our sacrifice. Forgive the tangent here, but all of that is to say that fear–or any catalyst that with which we struggle–can be transmuted into “gold” by the spiritual alchemical process of offering it as a sacrifice; by intentionally uniting it to the Source of all things.


    1. Doug, I love this conversation. Completing the loop is an interesting example. I think I am completing the loop when I offer up my personal “striving” – as described in the 3 steps.

      In step 1 – …making decisions out of love – or AT LEAST not out of fear”. I think that consistent with that you’re describing – that we cannot avoid fear, but we can mitigate its influence on our choices. The example you use of Jesus is the garden is amazingly appropriate given that just this morning I was contemplating that in Jesus’ “company”, and considered that indeed, he had the time in the garden to prepare himself for what He knew was coming. He had time to contemplate the choices he had to make, and – as you suggest – offered up His fear in favor of carrying out the drama that has taught so many so much (even if they misunderstand it).

      So, indeed – there are degrees and types of fear. There’s the fear that we face when accosted by an armed assailant in a dark alley, and then there’s the cosmic fear – living in fear of judgment, or hell, or sickness, etc. On the one hand, “Here – take my money, just don’t hurt me. On the other hand, we can choose to live in fear or not. We can choose to (or not to) allow fear to usurp our love.

      I hope I first understood what you were saying, and that I explained clearly how we’re very much in agreement.
