The Law of One, Book III, Session 52
Questioner: Thank you.
I think that possibly I am on an important point here because it seems to me that the great work in evolution is the discipline of personality, and it seems that we have two types of entities moving around the universe, one stemming from disciplines of personality, and the other stemming from what you call the slingshot effect.
I won’t even get into the sub-light speeds because I don’t consider that too important.
I only consider this material important because of the fact that we are considering disciplines of the personality.
Is the use of the slingshot effect for travel what you might call an intellectual or a left brain type of involvement of understanding rather than a right brain type?
Ra: I am Ra. Your perception on this point is extensive.
You penetrate the outer teaching.
We prefer not to utilize the terminology of right and left brain due to the inaccuracies of this terminology.
Some functions are repetitive or redundant in both lobes, and further, to some entities the functions of the right and left are reversed.
However, the heart of the query is worth some consideration.
The technology of which you, as a social complex, are so enamored at this time is but the birthing of the manipulation of the intelligent energy of the sub-Logos which, when carried much further, may evolve into technology capable of using the gravitic effects of which we spoke.
We note that this term is not accurate but there is no closer term.
Therefore, the use of technology to manipulate that outside the self is far, far less of an aid to personal evolution than the disciplines of the mind/body/spirit complex resulting in the whole knowledge of the self in the microcosm and macrocosm.
To the disciplined entity, all things are open and free.
The discipline which opens the universes opens also the gateways to evolution.
The difference is that of choosing either to hitchhike to a place where beauty may be seen or to walk, step by step, independent and free in this independence to praise the strength to walk and the opportunity for the awareness of beauty.
The hitchhiker, instead, is distracted by conversation and the vagaries of the road and, dependent upon the whims of others, is concerned to make the appointment in time.
The hitchhiker sees the same beauty but has not prepared itself for the establishment, in the roots of mind, of the experience.
Questioner: I would ask this question in order to understand the mental disciplines and how they evolve.
Does fourth, fifth, and sixth-density positive or service-to-others orientation of social memory complexes use both the slingshot and the personality disciplines type of effect for travel or do they use only one?
Ra: I am Ra.
The positively oriented social memory complex will be attempting to learn the disciplines of mind, body, and spirit.
However, there are some which, having the technology available to use intelligent energy forces to accomplish travel, do so while learning the more appropriate disciplines.
Questioner: Then I am assuming that in the more positively oriented social memory complexes a much higher percentage of them use the personality disciplines for this travel. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
As positive fifth-density moves into sixth there are virtually no entities which any longer use outer technology for travel or communication.
Questioner: Could you give me the same information on the negatively oriented social memory complexes as to the ratios and as to how they use the slingshot effect or the disciplines of the personality for travel?
Ra: I am Ra.
The fourth-density negative
uses the slingshot gravitic light effect, perhaps 80% of its membership being unable to master the disciplines necessary for alternate methods of travel.
In fifth-density negative
approximately 50% at some point gain the necessary discipline to use thought to accomplish travel.
As the sixth-density approaches,
the negative orientation is thrown into confusion and little travel is attempted.
What travel is done is perhaps 73% of light/thought.
Questioner: Is there any difference close to the end of fifth-density in the disciplines of personality between positive and negative orientation?
Ra: I am Ra. There are patent differences between the polarities but no difference whatsoever in the completion of the knowledge of the self necessary to accomplish this discipline.
Questioner: Am I correct, then, in assuming that
discipline of the personality,
knowledge of self, and
control in strengthening of the will
would be what any fifth-density entity would see as those things of importance?
Ra: I am Ra.
In actuality these things are of importance in third through early seventh densities.
The only correction in nuance that we would make is your use of the word, control.
It is paramount that it be understood that it is not desirable or helpful to the growth of the understanding, may we say, of an entity by itself to control thought processes or impulses except where they may result in actions not consonant with the Law of One.
Control may seem to be a short-cut to discipline, peace, and illumination.
However, this very control potentiates and necessitates the further incarnative experience in order to balance this control or repression of that self which is perfect.
Instead, we appreciate and recommend the use of your second verb in regard to the use of the will.
Acceptance of self, forgiveness of self, and the direction of the will; this is the path towards the disciplined personality.
Your faculty of will is that which is powerful within you as co-Creator.
You cannot ascribe to this faculty too much importance.
Thus it must be carefully used and directed in service-to-others for those upon the positively oriented path.
There is great danger in the use of the will as the personality becomes stronger, for it may be used even subconsciously in ways reducing the polarity of the entity.
Questioner: Thank you. Just a little point that was bothering me of no real importance.
Is there then, from the point of view of an individual who wishes to follow the service-to-others path, anything of importance other than disciplines of personality, knowledge of self, and strengthening of will?
Ra: I am Ra. This is technique. This is not the heart.
Let us examine the heart of evolution.
Let us remember that we are all one.
This is the great learning/teaching.
In this unity lies love.
This is a great learn/teaching.
In this unity lies light.
This is the fundamental teaching of all planes of existence in materialization.
Unity, love, light, and joy; this is the heart of evolution of the spirit.
The second-ranking lessons are learn/taught in meditation and in service.
At some point the mind/body/spirit complex is so smoothly activated and balanced by these central thoughts or distortions that the techniques you have mentioned become quite significant.
However, the universe, its mystery unbroken, is one.
Always begin and end in the Creator, not in technique.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 74
Questioner: I have a statement here that I am going to make and let you correct.
I see that the disciplines of the personality feed the indigo-ray energy center and affect the power of the white magician by unblocking the lower energy centers allowing for the free flow of the upward spiraling light to reach the indigo center.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: Will you please correct me?
Ra: I am Ra. The indigo center is indeed most important for the work of the adept.
However, it cannot, no matter how crystallized, correct to any extent whatsoever imbalances or blockages in other energy centers.
They must needs be cleared seriatim from red upwards.
Questioner: I’m not sure exactly if I understand this.
The question is how do disciplines of the personality feed the indigo-ray energy center and affect the power of the white magician?
Does that question make sense?
Ra: I am Ra. Yes.
Questioner: Would you answer it please?
Ra: I am Ra. We would be happy to answer this query.
We understood the previous query as being of other import.
The indigo ray is the ray of the adept.
There is an identification between the crystallization of that energy center and the improvement of the working of the mind/body/spirit as it begins to transcend space/time balancing and to enter the combined realms of space/time and time/space.
Questioner: Let me see if I have a wrong opinion here of the effect of disciplines of the personality.
I was assuming that the discipline of the personality to, shall we say, have a balanced attitude toward a single fellow entity would properly clear and balance, to some extent, the orange-ray energy center.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. We cannot say that you speak incorrectly but merely less than completely.
The disciplined personality,
when faced with an other-self, has all centers balanced according to its unique balance.
Thusly the other-self looks in a mirror seeing its self.
Questioner: The disciplines of the personality are the paramount work of any who have become consciously aware of the process of evolution.
Am I correct on that statement?
Ra: I am Ra. Quite.
Questioner: What I am trying to get at is how these disciplines affect the energy centers and the power of the white magician.
Will you tell me how that works?
Ra: I am Ra.
The heart of the discipline of the personality is threefold.
One, know your self.
Two, accept your self.
Three, become the Creator.
The third step is that step
which, when accomplished, renders one the most humble servant of all, transparent in personality and completely able to know and accept other-selves.
In relation to the pursuit of the magical working the continuing discipline of the personality involves the adept in knowing its self, accepting its self, and thus clearing the path towards the great indigo gateway to the Creator.
To become the Creator is to become all that there is.
There is, then, no personality in the sense with which the adept begins its learn/teaching.
As the consciousness of the indigo ray becomes more crystalline, more work may be done; more may be expressed from intelligent infinity.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 75
Questioner: You made the statement in a previous session that the true adept lives more and more as it is.
Will you explain and expand more upon that statement?
Ra: I am Ra. Each entity is the Creator.
The entity, as it becomes more and more conscious of its self,
gradually comes to the turning point at which it determines to seek either in service to others or in service to self.
The seeker becomes the adept when it has balanced with minimal adequacy the energy centers red, orange, yellow, and blue with the addition of the green for the positive, thus moving into indigo work.
The adept then
begins to do less of the preliminary or outer work, having to do with function, and begins to effect the inner work which has to do with being.
As the adept becomes a more and more consciously crystallized entity
it gradually manifests more and more of that which it always has been since before time; that is, the one infinite Creator.
This instrument begins to show rapid distortion towards increase of pain.
We, therefore, would offer time for any brief query before we leave this working.
