The Law of One material outlines a curious phenomenon where General George Patton over his lifetime, especially though his pivotal and intense involvement in WWII, polarized positively while decreasing his harvestability to fourth density vibrational conditions. This is curious indeed and it begs the question of how can someone increase in positive polarity but decrease in harvestability? Would it not be the case that as someone increases in positive polarity, they would simultaneously advance in completing third-density lessons?
Not necessarily, it seems.
Here is Ra discussing General Patton:
34.17 Questioner: Is it possible for you to use as an example our General Patton and tell me the effect that war had on him in his development?
Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last full question of this working. The one of whom you speak, known as George, was one in whom the programming of previous incarnations had created a pattern, or inertia, which was irresistible in its incarnation in your time/space. This entity was of a strong yellow-ray activation with frequent green-ray openings and occasional blue-ray openings. However, it did not find itself able to break the mold of previous traumatic experiences of a bellicose nature.
This entity polarized somewhat towards the positive in its incarnation due to its singleness of belief in truth and beauty. This entity was quite sensitive. It felt a great honor/duty to the preservation of that which was felt by the entity to be true, beautiful, and in need of defense. This entity perceived itself as a gallant figure. It polarized somewhat towards the negative in its lack of understanding the green ray it carried with it, rejecting the forgiveness principle which is implicit in universal love.
The sum total of this incarnation, vibrationally, was a slight increase in positive polarity but a decrease in harvestability due to the rejection of the Law or Way of Responsibility; that is, seeing universal love, yet still it fought on.
How can one polarize positively (serving the “True and Beautiful” in green and blue rays) while decreasing in harvestability (rejecting the Law of Responsibility)?
The answer lies in understanding developmental stages of collective consciousness. Simply put, General Patton’s worldview framed what he saw as “true, beautiful, and in need of defense,” as Ra puts it. And that worldview was itself a manifestation of a stage of the collective consciousness that was (is) tribal.
One can devote oneself to their group with generosity and love while simultaneously believing that other groups are not just threatening but that their “other-selves” in the other group are somehow less than. Let’s see an example:
Say I am a fundamentalist Christian pastor. I believe that those who don’t believe the way I do will go to hell. I am xenophobic. I hate Muslims and liberals. But I serve my church every Sunday with my whole heart. I visit the sick in my church. I have helped couples stay together after struggles. I have set up scholarships for our young-adult members to go to college. I preach the truth that only those who accept the Lord Jesus as the savior will go to heaven. I see myself as a gallant figure. But I reject the idea that those outside of my community are loved by God until they repent. I feel that it is my Christian duty to defend Jesus Christ against Satan’s onslaughts which are most especially evidenced by our liberal society’s acceptance of gays. I tell parents in my congregation that if they really loved their gay children, they would shun them until the children repent and come back to Jesus–so that they can be saved and thus, join their parents in heaven.
Did I polarize to the positive through my service of what I felt was true, beautiful, and in need of defense? Perhaps.
Did I decrease my harvestability because my operational worldview was so exclusionary ? Likely.
Another example follows:
I am a public advocate of disclosure where I teach how everything is grounded in the worldview of spiritual, physical, and emotional warfare. In this role, I believe that I am serving humanity by disclosing the truth of what is happening behind the mainstream lies. I desire nothing more than to awaken humanity out of the various spiritual, psychological, and social controls that the negative aliens and their third-density elites use to keep us from ascending into our full potential–and to fourth density. I see myself as a gallant figure who defends my notion of the true and beautiful, and I vow to fight until the positive side defeats the negative side.
Did I polarize more positively through my service of what I felt was true, beautiful, and in need of defense? Yes, quite likely.
Did I decrease my harvestability because of my warfare disclosure worldview? Probably.
Returning now to General Patton. I have not studied his life and I can’t speculate to what degree he intuited universal love, and how, precisely, did he reject it by continuing to choose bellicosity towards his other-selves.
For that matter, can any of us really know how we reject the Law of Responsibility? In third density, we do not see holistically because “understanding is not of this [third] density” (27.13), as Ra reminds us. But I do believe it is possible to choose sides on an issue and disagree boldly with the opposition, while maintaining an internal humility and openness. The humility and openness keep us asking ourselves: where are my biases? What can’t I see? What continues to trigger me about the opposition, and why? What can the other side teach me that could help me grow along my path?
Note: Law of Responsibility is the honor and duty of third-density beings to put into practice their level of understanding of the law of love that they have learned and processed over many lifetimes (22.5, 29.11, 60.16, 68.17, 69.12, 70.14, 101.8). It is a cosmic law, or way, that helps beings progress upon their paths by adjusting catalytic experiences to course correct in accordance with one’s “propinquity,” (101.8) or proximity, to Love/Light. A nuanced example of this includes how the honor/duty of putting into action specific information given or discovered directly affects a spiritual seeker’s journey.
