The Law of One, Book I, Session 17
Questioner: Is there a “best way” to meditate?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 49
Questioner: What process would be the recommended process for correctly awakening the kundalini and of what value would that be?
Ra: I am Ra. The metaphor of the coiled serpent being called upwards is vastly appropriate for consideration by your peoples.
This is what you are attempting when you seek.
There are, as we have stated, great misapprehensions concerning this metaphor and the nature of pursuing its goal.
We must generalize and ask that you grasp the fact that this in effect renders far less useful that which we share.
However, as each entity is unique, generalities are our lot when communicating for your possible edification.
We have two types of energy.
We are attempting then, as entities in any true color of this octave, to move the meeting place of inner and outer natures further and further along or upward along the energy centers.
The two methods of approaching this with sensible method are first, the seating within one’s self of those experiences which are attracted to the entity through the south pole.
Each experience will need to be
seated within the individual.
As the entity grows in self-acceptance and awareness of catalyst the location of the comfortable seating of these experiences will rise to the new true color entity.
The experience, whatever it may be, will be seated in red ray and considered as to its survival content and so forth.
Each experience will be sequentially understood by the growing and seeking mind/body/spirit complex
in terms of survival, then
in terms of personal identity, then
in terms of social relations, then
in terms of universal love, then
in terms of how the experience may beget free communication, then
in terms of how the experience may be linked to universal energies, and finally
in terms of the sacramental nature of each experience.
Meanwhile the Creator lies within.
In the north pole the crown is already upon the head and the entity is potentially a god.
This energy is brought into being by the humble and trusting acceptance of this energy through meditation and contemplation of the self and of the Creator.
Where these energies meet is where the serpent will have achieved its height.
When this uncoiled energy approaches universal love and radiant being the entity is in a state whereby the harvestability of the entity comes nigh.
Questioner: Will you recommend a technique of meditation?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: Is it better, or shall I say, does it produce more useable results in meditation to leave the mind as blank as possible and let it run down, so to speak, or is it better to focus in meditation on some object or some thing for concentration?
Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last full query of this work time.
Each of the two types of meditation is useful for a particular reason.
The passive meditation
involving the clearing of the mind, the emptying of the mental jumble which is characteristic of mind complex activity among your peoples, is efficacious for those whose goal is to achieve an inner silence as a base from which to listen to the Creator.
This is an useful and helpful tool and is by far the most generally useful type of meditation as opposed to contemplation or prayer.
The type of meditation which may be called visualization
has as its goal not that which is contained in the meditation itself.
Visualization is the tool of the adept.
Those who learn to hold visual images in mind are developing an inner concentrative power that can transcend boredom and discomfort.
When this ability has become crystallized in an adept the adept may then do polarizing in consciousness without external action which can effect the planetary consciousness.
This is the reason for the existence of the so-called White Magician.
Only those wishing to pursue the conscious raising of planetary vibration will find visualization to be a particularly satisfying type of meditation.
Contemplation or the consideration in a meditative state of an inspiring image or text is extremely useful also among your peoples,
and the faculty of will called praying is also of a potentially helpful nature.
Whether it is indeed an helpful activity depends quite totally upon the intentions and objects of the one who prays.
May we ask if there are any brief queries at this time?
The Law of One, Book II, Session 50
Questioner: In the last session you made the statement that experiences are attracted into the entity through the south pole.
Could you expand on that and give us a definition of what you mean?
Ra: I am Ra. It takes some consideration to accomplish the proper perspective for grasping the sense of the above information.
The south or negative pole is one which attracts. It pulls unto itself those things magnetized to it.
So with the mind/body/spirit complex.
The in-flow of experience is of the south pole influx. You may consider this a simplistic statement.
The only specific part of this correctness is that the red-ray or foundation energy center, being the lowest or root energy center of the physical vehicle, will have the first opportunity to react to any experience.
In this way only, you may see a physical locus of the south pole being identified with the root energy center.
In every facet of mind and body the root or foundation will be given the opportunity to function first.
What is this opportunity but survival?
This is the root possibility of response and may be found to be characteristic of the basic functions of both mind and body.
You will find this instinct the strongest, and once this is balanced much is open to the seeker.
The south pole then ceases blocking the experiential data and higher energy centers of mind and body become availed of the opportunity to use the experience drawn to it.
Questioner: Why do you say the experience is drawn to or attracted to the entity?
Ra: I am Ra. We say this due to our understanding that this is the nature of the phenomenon of experiential catalyst and its entry into the mind/body/spirit complex’s awareness.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 66
Questioner: Then an entity who becomes aware of his polarization with respect to service-to-others might find a paradoxical situation in the case where it was unable to fully serve because of distortions chosen to reach the understanding it has reached.
At this point it would seem that the entity who was aware of the mechanism might, through meditation, understand the necessary mental configuration for alleviating the physical distortion so that it could be of greater service-to-others.
At this particular nexus am I correct in this thinking?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct although we might note that there are often complex reasons for the programming of a distorted physical complex pattern.
In any case, meditation is always an aid to knowing the self.
Questioner: Is a vertical positioning of the spine useful or helpful in the meditative procedure?
Ra: I am Ra. It is somewhat helpful.
