About the Authors
Don Elkins was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1930. He held a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering as well as a general engineering M.S. from Speed Scientific School, and a PhD in philosophy from an English university, and was Professor of Physics and Engineering at the University of Louisville for twelve years, and founder and head of the University of Alaska’s mechanical engineering department in 1960-61.
He served with distinction in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. In 1965 he left his position as tenured professor in order to give himself more time for the UFO and paranormal research, and became a Boeing 727 pilot, eventually Captain, for a major airline until his death in 1984.
Don began the work of L/L Research solo in 1955 using age regression hypnosis to research reincarnation. He talked with and visited UFO contactees all over the United States, often piloting his own small plane, and investigated the many areas of paranormal study into which UFOs led him through the years, corresponding with and visiting a wide variety of scholars and researchers as well as experiencers, abductees and many others defying categorization throughout his very active career as a researcher.
In 1962, Don began an experiment in channeling using material he had found from a contactee group in Detroit, MI, that was publishing a channeling series entitled Man, Consciousness and Understanding, on starting a “UFO contactee group” without needing actual contact from a physical UFO.
This experiment continues in an unbroken line today as our weekly meditation and study group, where we work with meditation and collecting non-trance telepathic channeling from allegedly extraterrestrial sources.
Don published some of his UFO research in the book Secrets Of The UFO. The Law Of One books contain our group’s collected sessions with those of Ra, and represent the best of the L/L Research channeling in terms of level of contact, and the bulk of what Don considered his own life’s work.
Carla L. Rueckert (McCarty) was born in 1943 in Lake Forest, Illinois. She completed undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Louisville in 1966 and master’s degree studies in Library Service in 1971. She served as librarian and bibliographer to college and school libraries for six years. She was a meditator with the group Don started in early 1962, and became partners with Don in L/L Research in 1968. In 1970, she turned full-time to assisting Don with his research.
She read and abstracted books and periodicals, and did correspondence and writing for Don. In 1974, she began channeling and continued unceasingly in that effort until she was stopped in 2011 by a spinal fusion surgery.
During four of those thirty-seven years of channeling, 1981 – 1984, Carla served as the instrument for the Ra Contact. In 1987, she married Jim McCarty and together they continued the mission of L/L Research. Carla passed into larger life on April 1, 2015.
James McCarty was born in 1947 in Kearney, Nebraska. After receiving an undergraduate degrees from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and an M.S. in Early Childhood Education from the University of Florida, Jim moved to a piece of wilderness in Marion County, Kentucky, to build his own log cabin in the woods and to develop a self-sufficient lifestyle.
For the next six years, he was in almost complete retreat. He founded the Rock Creek Research and Development Laboratories in 1977 to further his teaching efforts. After experimenting, decided that he preferred the methods and directions he had found in studying with L/L Research in 1978 and 1979.
In 1980, he joined his research with Don’s and Carla’s and the legal entity that we are now comes from this joining of Jim’s non-profit charity, The Rock Creek Research and Development Laboratories, with L/L Research in 1982. We use Rock Creek as our legal name, and do business as L/L Research. Jim and Carla were married in 1987. Jim has a wide L/L correspondence and creates wonderful gardens and stonework.
He enjoys history, beauty, nature, dance and silence.

Ra's Comment on the Dissemination of The Law of One Material by The Above Entities (L/L Research)
The Law of One, Book I, Session 1
January 15, 1981
Questioner: Will you be available for communication?
Can we call on you in the future?
Ra: I am Ra. We have good contact with this instrument because of her recent experiences with trance.
She is to be able to communicate our thoughts in your future.
However, we advise care in disturbing the channel for a few moments and then the proper procedure for aiding an instrument who has, to some extent, the need of re-entering the mind/body/spirit complex which the instrument has chosen for the life experience of this time/space.
Do you understand how to nurture this instrument?
Questioner: No. Could you explain it?
Ra: We suggest first a brief period of silence.
Then the repetition of the instrument’s vibratory complex of sound in your density which you call name.
Repeat until an answer is obtained.
Then the laying on of the hands at the neck region for a brief period so that the instrument may recharge batteries which are not, shall we say, full of the essence of this particular field at this time.
And finally, a gift of water into which the love of all present has been given.
This will restore this entity, for her distortions contain great sensitivity towards the vibrations of love and the charged water will effect comfort.
Do you now understand?
Questioner: Not completely.
Ra: I am Ra. We search your mind to find the vibration (nickname).
It is this vibration from you which contains the largest amount of what you would call love.
Others would call this entity (first name).
The charging of the water is done by those present placing their hands over the glass and visualizing the power of love entering the water.
This will charge that very effective medium with those vibrations.
This instrument is, at this time, quite fatigued.
However, her heart is such that she continues to remain open to us and useful as a channel.
This is why we have spent the time/space explaining how the distortions of what you may call fatigue may be ameliorated.
Under no circumstances should this instrument be touched until she has responded to her name.
I do not wish to take this instrument beyond her capacity for physical energy. It grows low.
Therefore, I must leave this instrument.
I leave you in the glory and peace of unity.
Go forth in peace, rejoicing in the power of the one Creator.
I am Ra.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 2
Questioner: Consider them asked. I don’t have anything to go on.
What is the proper use of this instrument? What should we do?
What should we do to maximize her ability and her comfort?
Ra: I am Ra. We are pleased that you have asked this question for it is not our understanding that we have the right/duty to share our perceptions on any subject but philosophy without direct question.
However, this mind/body/spirit is not being correctly used and therefore is experiencing unnecessary distortions of body in the area of fatigue.
The vibrations may well be purified by a simple turning to the circle of One and the verbal vibration while doing so of the following dialogue:
Question: “What is the Law?”
Answer: “The Law is One.”
Question: “Why are we here?”
Answer: “We seek the Law of One.”
Question: “Why do we seek Ra?”
Answer: “Ra is an humble messenger of the Law of One.”
“Rejoice then and purify this place in the Law of One.
Let no thought-form enter the circle we have walked about this instrument, for the Law is One.”
The instrument at this time should be in trance.
The proper alignment is the head pointed twenty degrees north-by-northeast
This is the direction from which the newer or New Age distortions of love/light, which are less distorted, are emanating, and this instrument will find comfort therein.
This is a sensitive instrument, by which we mean the distortions which enter her mind/body/spirit complex come from any of her senses.
Thus, it is well to do the following:
Place at the entity’s head a virgin chalice of water.
To the center, the book most closely aligned with the instrument’s mental distortions which are allied most closely with the Law of One, that being the Bible that she touches most frequently.
To the other side of the Bible, a small amount of cense, or incense, in a virgin censer.
To the rear of the book symbolizing One, opened to the Gospel of John, Chapter One,
a white candle.
The instrument would be strengthened by the wearing of a white robe.
The instrument shall be covered and prone, the eyes covered.
We feel that, though this is a complex of activity/circumstance and may seem very distorted from a purposeful teach/learning experience, these elaborations on the technique of trance will ease the mind distortions of those about the instrument as they perceive improvement in the instrument’s distortions with regard to fatigue.
We add only that if these teach/learning sessions are held during time/space during which your sunbody does not light your room that it is best to call the instrument before the lighting of the illuminatory mechanism.
I am Ra.
I leave you in the glory and the peace of the one Creator.
Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the one Creator.
In joy, we leave you.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 13
January 29, 1981
Questioner: First of all I would like to apologize for asking so many stupid questions while searching for what we should do.
I consider what we are doing to be a great honor and privilege to also be humble messengers of the Law of One.
I now believe that the way to prepare this book is to start at the beginning of creation and follow through the evolution of man on Earth, investigating at all times how the Law of One was used.
I would also like to make as the title of the book, The Law of One, and I would like to state as the author, Ra. Would you agree to this?
Ra: I am Ra. Your query is unclear.
Would you please state as separate queries each area of agreement?
Questioner: First, I would like to start at the beginning of creation, as far back as we can go and follow the development of man to the present time.
Is this agreeable?
Ra: I am Ra. This is completely your discernment/understanding/decision.
Questioner: Secondly, I would like to title the book, The Law of One, by Ra.
Is this agreeable?
Ra: I am Ra. The title of the book is acceptable.
The authorship by vibratory sound complex Ra is, in our distortion of understanding, incomplete.
We are messengers.
Questioner: Can you state who then should author the book?
Ra: I am Ra. I can only request that if your discernment/understanding suggests the use of this vibratory sound complex, Ra, the phrase “An humble messenger of the Law of One” be appended.
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 22
Session 37, March 12, 1981
Questioner: Is Ra familiar with the results of our efforts today to publish the first book that we did?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: I don’t know if you can comment on the difficulty that we will have in making the Law of One available to those who would require it and want it.
It is not something that is easy to disseminate to those who want it at this time.
I am sure that there are many, especially the Wanderers, who want this information, but we will have to do something else in order to get it into their hands in the way of added material, I am afraid.
Is it possible for you to comment on this?
Ra: I am Ra. It is possible.
Questioner: Will you comment on it?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall.
Firstly, the choosing of this group to do some work to serve others was of an intensive nature.
Each present sacrificed much for no tangible result.
Each may search its heart for the type of sacrifice, knowing that the material sacrifices are the least; the intensive commitment to blending into an harmonious group at the apex of sacrifice.
Under these conditions we found your vibration.
We observed your vibration. It will not be seen often.
We do not wish to puff up the pride, but we shall not chaffer with the circumstances necessary for our particular contact.
Thus you have received and we willingly undertake the honor/duty of continuing to offer transmissions of concepts which are, to the best of our abilities, precise in nature and grounded in the attempt to unify many of those things that concern you.
Secondly, the use you make of these transmissions is completely at your discretion.
We suggest the flowing of the natural intuitive senses and a minimum of the distortion towards concern.
We are content, as we have said, to be able to aid in the evolution of one of your peoples.
Whatever effort you make cannot disappoint us, for that number already exceeds one.
Questioner: I have been very hesitant to ask certain questions for fear that they would be regarded, as I regard them, as questions of unimportance or of too great a specificity and thereby reduce our contact with you.
In order to disseminate some of the information that I consider to be of great importance; that is, the non-transient type of information, information having to do with the evolution of mind, body, and spirit, it seems almost necessary in our society to include information that is of little value simply because that is how our society works, how the system of distribution appraises that which is offered for distribution.
Will you comment on this problem that I have?
Ra: I am Ra. We comment as follows:
It is quite precisely correct that the level and purity of this contact is dependent upon the level and purity of information sought.
Thusly, the continued request for specific information from this particular source is deleterious to the substance of your purpose.
Moreover, as we scanned your mind to grasp your situation as regards the typescript of some of our words, we found that you had been criticized for the type of language construction used to convey data.
Due to our orientation with regard to data, even the most specifically answered question would be worded by our group in such a way as to maximize the accuracy of the nuances of the answer.
This, however, mitigates against what your critic desires in the way of simple, lucid prose. More than this we cannot say.
These are our observations of your situation.
What you wish to do is completely your decision and we remain at your service in whatever way we may be without breaking the Way of Confusion.
Questioner: We will attempt to work around these problems in the dissemination of the Law of One.
It will take some careful work to do this. I personally will not cease while still incarnate to disseminate this. It will be necessary to write a book, probably about UFOs because the Law of One is connected with the phenomenon.
It’s connected with all phenomena, but this seems to be the easiest entry for dissemination. I plan firstly to use the UFO in the advertising sense as it was meant by the Confederation as an entry into an explanation of the process of evolution that is going on on this planet and how the rest of the Confederation has been involved in a more understandable way, shall I say, for the population that will read the book.
We will use the Ra material in undistorted form just as it has been recorded here in various places throughout the book to amplify and clarify what we are saying in the book.
This is the only way that I can see right now to create enough dissemination for the people who would like to have the Law of One for them to be able to get it.
I could just print up the material that we have off of the tape recorder and publish it but we wouldn’t be able to disseminate it very well because of distribution problems.
Will you comment on my second idea of doing a general book on UFOs including the material from the Law of One?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall comment.
We hope that your Ra plans materialize.
This is a cosmic joke. You were asking for such an example of humor and we feel this is a rather appropriate nexus in which one may be inserted.
Continue with your intentions to the best of your natures and abilities.
What more can be done, my friends?
The Law of One, Book III, Session 61
July 8, 1981
Questioner: Could you tell me why it is important for the appurtenances and other things to be so carefully aligned with respect to the instrument and why just a small ruffle in the sheet by the instrument causes a problem with the reception of Ra?
Ra: I am Ra.
We may attempt an explanation.
This contact is narrow-band.
The instrument is highly sensitive.
Thus we have good entry into it and can use it to an increasingly satisfactory level.
However, the trance condition is, shall we say, not one which is without toll upon this instrument.
Therefore, the area above the entrance into the physical complex of this instrument must be kept clear to avoid discomfort to the instrument especially as it re-enters the body complex.
give to the instrument’s sensory input mental visualizations which aid in the trance beginning.
The careful alignment of these is important for the energizing group in that it is a reminder to that support group that it is time for a working.
The ritualistic behaviors are triggers for many energies of the support group.
You may have noticed more energy being used in workings as the number has increased due to the long-term, shall we say, effect of such ritualistic actions.
This would not aid another group as it was designed for this particular system of mind/body/spirit complexes and especially the instrument.
There is enough energy transferred for one more long query.
We do not wish to deplete this instrument.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 67
We have a paradoxical situation with respect to serving the Creator.
We have requests, from those whom we serve in this density, for Ra’s information.
However, we have requests from another density not to disseminate this information.
We have portions of the Creator requesting two seemingly opposite activities of this group.
It would be very helpful if we could reach the condition of full service in such a way that we were by every thought and activity serving the Creator to the very best of our ability.
Is it possible for you to solve, or for the fifth-density entity who offers its service to solve, this paradox which I have observed?
Ra: I am Ra. It is quite possible.
Questioner: Then how could we solve this paradox?
Ra: I am Ra. Consider, if you will, that you have no ability not to serve the Creator since all is the Creator.
In your individual growth patterns appear the basic third-density choice. [Further, there are overlaid memories of the positive polarizations of your home density.]
Thus your particular orientation is strongly polarized towards service to others and has attained wisdom as well as compassion.
You do not have merely two opposite requests for information or lack of information from this source if you listen careful to those whose voices you may hear.
This is all one voice to which you resonate upon a certain frequency. This frequency determines your choice of service to the one Creator.
As it happens this group’s vibratory patterns and those of Ra are compatible and enable us to speak through this instrument with your support.
This is a function of free will.
A portion, seemingly of the Creator,
rejoices at your choice to question us regarding the evolution of spirit.
A seemingly separate portion
would wish for multitudinous answers to a great range of queries of a specific nature.
Another seemingly separate group of your peoples
would wish this correspondence through this instrument to cease, feeling it to be of a negative nature.
Upon the many other planes of existence
there are those whose every fiber rejoices at your service
and those such as the entity of whom you have been speaking
which wish only to terminate the life upon the third-density plane of this instrument.
All are the Creator.
There is one vast panoply of biases and distortions, colors and hues, in an unending pattern.
In the case of those with whom you, as entities and as a group, are not in resonance, you wish them love, light, peace, joy, and bid them well.
No more than this can you do for your portion of the Creator is as it is and your experience and offering of experience, to be valuable, needs be more and more a perfect representation of who you truly are.
Could you, then, serve a negative entity by offering the instrument’s life? It is unlikely that you would find this a true service.
Thus you may see in many cases
the loving balance being achieved,
the love being offered,
light being sent, and
the service of the service-to-self oriented entity gratefully acknowledged while being rejected as not being useful in your journey at this time.
Thus you serve one Creator without paradox.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 71
Questioner: You stated in a previous session that Ra searched for some time to find a group such as this one.
I would assume that this search was for the purpose of communicating the Law of One. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct.
We also, as we have said, wished to attempt to make reparation for distortions of this law set in motion by our naive actions of your past.
Questioner: Can you tell me if we have covered the necessary material at this point to, if published, make the necessary reparations for the naive actions?
Ra: I am Ra. We mean no disrespect for your service, but we do not expect to make full reparations for these distortions.
We may, however, offer our thoughts in the attempt.
The attempt is far more important to us than the completeness of the result.
The nature of your language is such that what is distorted cannot, to our knowledge, be fully undistorted but only illuminated somewhat.
Questioner: When you say you searched for this group what do you mean?
What was your process of search?
I ask this question to understand more the illusion of time and space.
Ra: I am Ra. Consider the process of one who sees the spectrograph of some complex of elements. It is a complex paint sample, let us say for ease of description.
We of Ra knew the needed elements for communication which had any chance of enduring.
We compared our color chip to many individuals and groups over a long span of your time.
Your spectrograph matches our sample.
In response to your desire to see the relationship betwixt space/time and time/space may we say that we conducted this search in time/space for in this illusion one may quite readily see entities as vibratory complexes and groups as harmonics within vibratory complexes.
Questioner: I see the most important aspect of this communication as being a vehicle of partial enlightenment for those incarnate now who have become aware of their part in their own evolutionary process.
Am I correct in this assumption?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct.
We may note that this is the goal of all artifacts and experiences which entities may come into contact with and is not only the property of Ra or this contact.
We find that this instrument has neglected to continue to remind its self of the need for holding some portion of energy back for reserve.
This is recommended as a portion of the inner program to be reinstated as it will lengthen the number of workings we may have. This is acceptable to us.
The transferred energy grows quite, quite low. We must leave you shortly.
Is there a brief query at this time?
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 77
Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.
We communicate now.
Questioner: Could you please give me an indication of the condition of the instrument?
Ra: I am Ra. It is as previously stated.
Questioner: Was the instrument under attack just prior to this session?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Is there anything that we could do to help protect the instrument from these attacks prior to the session?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: What could we do?
Ra: I am Ra. Your group could refrain from continuing this contact.
Questioner: Is that the only thing that we could do?
Ra: I am Ra. That is the only thing you could do which you are not already attempting with a whole heart.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 81
Questioner: Is this the reason for the instrument’s feeling of uninterrupted weariness?
Ra: I am Ra. There are portions of your space/time in which this may be said to be symptomatic of the psychic greeting reaction.
However, the continual weariness is not due to psychic greeting but is rather an inevitable consequence of this contact.
Questioner: Why is this an inevitable consequence? What is the mechanism of this contact that creates this weariness?
Ra: I am Ra. The mechanism creating weariness is that connection betwixt the density wherein this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex is safely kept during these workings and the altogether variant density in which the instrument’s physical body complex resides at this space/time.
As the instrument takes on more of the coloration of the resting density the third-density experience seems more heavy and wearisome.
This was accepted by the instrument, as it desired to be of service.
Therefore, we accept also this effect about which nothing of which we are aware may be done.
Questioner: Is the effect a function of the number of sessions, and has it reached a peak level or will it continue to increase in effect?
Ra: I am Ra. This wearying effect will continue but should not be confused with the physical energy levels, having only to do with the, as you would call it, daily round of experience.
In this sphere those things which are known already to aid this instrument will continue to be of aid.
You will, however, notice the gradual increase in transparency, shall we say, of the vibrations of the instrument.
Questioner: I didn’t understand what you meant by that last statement.
Could you explain it?
Ra: I am Ra. Weariness of the time/space nature may be seen to be that reaction of transparent or pure vibrations with impure, confused, or opaque environs.
Questioner: Is there any of this effect upon the other two of us in this group?
Ra: I am Ra. This is quite correct.
Questioner: Then we would also experience the uninterrupted weariness as a consequence of the contact. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. The instrument, by the very nature of the contact, bears the brunt of this effect.
Each of the support group, by offering the love and the light of the one infinite Creator in unqualified support in these workings and in energy transfers for the purpose of these workings, experiences between 10 and 15 percent, roughly, of this effect.
It is cumulative and identical in the continual nature of its manifestation.
Questioner: What could be the result of this continued wearying effect after a long period?
Ra: I am Ra. You ask a general query with infinite answers.
We shall overgeneralize in order to attempt to reply.
might be tempted and thus lose the very contact which caused the difficulty.
So the story would end.
might be strong at first but not faithful in the face of difficulty.
Thus the story would end.
might choose the path of martyrdom in its completeness and use the instrument until its physical body complex failed from the harsh toll demanded when all energy was gone.
This particular group,
at this particular nexus, is attempting to conserve the vital energy of the instrument.
It is attempting to balance love of service and wisdom of service, and it is faithful to the service in the face of difficulty.
Temptation has not yet ended this group’s story.
We may not know the future, but the probability of this situation continuing over a relatively substantial period of your space/time is large.
The significant factor is the will of the instrument and of the group to serve.
That is the only cause for balancing the slowly increasing weariness which will continue to distort your perceptions.
Without this will the contact might be possible but finally seem too much of an effort.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 88
Questioner: Our publisher requests pictures for the book, The Law of One, that is going to press at this time.
Would you comment on the advisability, the benefit, or detriment, magical or otherwise, of us using pictures of this particular setup, the instrument, and the appurtenances in the book?
Ra: I am Ra. The practical advisability of such a project is completely a product of your discrimination.
There are magical considerations.
if pictures be taken of a working the visual image must needs be that which is; that is, it is well for you to photograph only an actual working and no sham nor substitution of any material.
There shall be no distortions which this group can avoid any more than we would wish distortions in our words.
it is inadvisable to photograph the instrument or any portion of the working room while the instrument is in trance.
This is a narrow band contact and we wish to keep electrical and electromagnetic energies constant when their presence is necessary and not present at all otherwise.
Questioner: From what you … I’m sorry. Go ahead.
If you meant to continue, continue. If not, I’ll ask a question.
Ra: I am Ra. We wished to state,
that once the instrumental (?) is aware that the picture-taking will be performed, that during the entire picture-taking, whether before or after the working, the instrument be required to continuously respond to speech, thus assuring that no trance is imminent.
Questioner: From what you have told me, then, I have planned the following:
We will, after the session is complete and the instrument has been awakened, and before moving the instrument, have the instrument continually talk to us while I take pictures.
In addition to this I will take some other pictures as requested by the publisher.
Is this the optimal filling of this requirement?
Ra: I am Ra. Yes.
We ask that any photographs tell the truth, that they be dated, and shine with a clarity so that there is no shadow of any but genuine expression which may be offered to those which seek truth.
We come as humble messengers of the Law of One, desiring to decrease distortions.
We ask that you, who have been our friends, work with any considerations such as above discussed, not with the thought of quickly removing an unimportant detail, but, as in all ways, regard such as another opportunity to, as the adept must, be yourselves and offer that which is in and with you without pretense of any kind.
