The following is my reflection upon these quotes from Ra in the Law of One:
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.
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.
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.Law of One, session 10.14
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.
