The Law of One, Book I, Session 17
Questioner: Is it necessary to penetrate one level at a time as we move through these planes?
Ra: I am Ra. It has been our experience that some penetrate several planes at one time.
Others penetrate them slowly.
Some in eagerness attempt to penetrate the higher planes before penetrating the energies of the so-called more fundamental planes.
This causes energy imbalance.
You will find ill health, as you call this distortion, to frequently be the result of a subtle mismatch of energies in which some of the higher energy levels are being activated by the conscious attempts of the entity while the entity has not penetrated the lower energy centers or sub-densities of this density.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 42
Questioner: I am going to make a statement and ask you to comment on its degree of accuracy.
I am assuming that the balanced entity would not be swayed either towards positive or negative emotions by any situation which he might confront.
By remaining unemotional in any situation, the balanced entity may clearly discern the appropriate and necessary responses in harmony with the Law of One for each situation. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is an incorrect application of the balancing which we have discussed.
The exercise of first experiencing feelings and then consciously discovering their antitheses within the being has as its objective not the smooth flow of feelings both positive and negative while remaining unswayed but rather the objective of becoming unswayed.
This is a simpler result and takes much practice, shall we say.
The catalyst of experience works in order for the learn/teachings of this density to occur.
However, if there is seen in the being a response, even if it is simply observed, the entity is still using the catalyst for learn/teaching.
The end result is that the catalyst is no longer needed.
Thus this density is no longer needed.
This is not indifference or objectivity but a finely tuned compassion and love which sees all things as love.
This seeing elicits no response due to catalytic reactions.
Thus the entity is now able to become co-Creator of experiential occurrences.
This is the truer balance.
Questioner: I will attempt to make an analogy.
If an animal, shall I say, a bull, in a pen attacks you because you have wandered into his pen, you get out of his way rapidly but you do not blame him.
You do not have much of an emotional response other than the response that he might damage you.
However, if you encounter another self in his territory and he attacks you, your response may be more of an emotional nature creating physical bodily responses.
Am I correct in assuming that when your response to the animal and to the other-self is that of seeing both as Creator and loving both and understanding their action in attacking you is the action of their free will then you have balanced yourself correctly in this area?
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is basically correct.
However, the balanced entity will see in the seeming attack of an other-self the causes of this action which are, in most cases, of a more complex nature than the cause of the attack of the second-density bull as was your example.
Thus this balanced entity would be open to many more opportunities for service to a third-density other-self.
Questioner: Would a perfectly balanced entity feel any emotional response in being attacked by the other-self?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
The response is love.
Questioner: In the illusion that we now experience it is difficult to maintain this response especially if the attack results in physical pain, but I assume that this response should be maintained even through physical pain or loss of life. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct and further is of a major or principle importance in understanding, shall we say, the principle of balance.
Balance is not indifference but rather the observer not blinded by any feelings of separation but rather fully imbued with love.
Questioner: What is the difference in terms of energy center activation between a person who represses emotional responses to emotionally charged situations and the person who is balanced and, therefore, truly unswayed by emotionally charged situations?
Ra: I am Ra. This query contains an incorrect assumption.
To the truly balanced entity no situation would be emotionally charged.
With this understood, we may say the following:
The repression of emotions depolarizes the entity in so far as it then chooses not to use the catalytic action of the space/time present in a spontaneous manner, thus dimming the energy centers.
There is, however, some polarization towards positive if the cause of this repression is consideration for other-selves.
The entity which has worked long enough with the catalyst to be able to feel the catalyst but not find it necessary to express reactions is not yet balanced but suffers no depolarization due to the transparency of its experiential continuum.
Thus the gradual increase in the ability to observe one’s reaction and to know the self will bring the self ever closer to a true balance.
Patience is requested and suggested, for the catalyst is intense upon your plane and its use must be appreciated over a period of consistent learn/teaching.
Questioner: How can a person know when he is unswayed by an emotionally charged situation or if he is repressing the flow of emotions, or if he is in balance and truly unswayed?
Ra: I am Ra. We have spoken to this point.
Therefore, we shall briefly iterate that to the balanced entity no situation has an emotional charge but is simply a situation like any other in which the entity may or may not observe an opportunity to be of service.
The closer an entity comes to this attitude the closer an entity is to balance.
You may note that it is not our recommendation that reactions to catalyst be repressed or suppressed unless such reactions would be a stumbling block not consonant with the Law of One to an other-self.
It is far, far better to allow the experience to express itself in order that the entity may then make fuller use of this catalyst.
Questioner: How can an individual assess what energy centers within its being are activated and in no immediate need of attention and which energy centers are not activated and are in need of immediate attention?
Ra: I am Ra.
The thoughts of an entity, its feelings or emotions, and least of all its behavior are the signposts for the teaching/learning of self by self.
In the analysis of one’s experiences of a diurnal cycle an entity may assess what it considers to be inappropriate thoughts, behaviors, feelings, and emotions.
In examining these inappropriate activities of mind, body, and spirit complexes the entity may then place these distortions in the proper vibrational ray and thus see where work is needed.
The Law of One, Book II, Session 43
Questioner: I agree with you wholeheartedly, but I sometimes am at a loss before investigation into an area as to whether it is going to lead to a better understanding.
This just seemed to be related somehow to the energy centers which we had been speaking of.
I am going to make a statement and have you comment on it for its correctness.
The statement is:
When the Creator’s light is split or divided into colors and energy centers for experience, then in order to reunite with the Creator the energy centers must be balanced exactly the same as the split light was as it originated from the Creator.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. To give this query a simple answer would be nearly impossible.
We shall simplify by concentrating upon what we consider to be the central idea towards which you are striving.
We have, many times now, spoken about the relative importance of balancing as opposed to the relative unimportance of maximal activation of each energy center.
The reason is as you have correctly surmised.
Thusly the entity is concerned, if it be upon the path of positive harvestability, with the regularizing of the various energies of experience.
Thus the most fragile entity may be more balanced than one with extreme energy and activity in service-to-others due to the fastidiousness with which the will is focused upon the use of experience in knowing the self.
The densities beyond your own give the minimally balanced individual much time/space and space/time with which to continue to refine these inner balances.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 54
Questioner: Thank you.
It bears weight to my own way of thinking also. I appreciate what you have told me.
Now, I would like to then consider the origin of catalyst.
First we have the condition of mind/body/spirit complex which, as a function of the first distortion, has reached a condition of blockage or partial blockage of one or more energy centers.
I will assume that catalyst is necessary only if there is at least partial blockage of one energy center.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: Could you tell me why?
Ra: I am Ra. While it is a primary priority to activate or unblock each energy center, it is also a primary priority at that point to begin to refine the balances between the energies so that each tone of the chord of total vibratory being-ness resonates in clarity, tune, and harmony with each other energy.
This balancing, tuning, and harmonizing of the self is most central to the more advanced or adept mind/body/spirit complex.
Each energy may be activated without the beauty that is possible through the disciplines and appreciations of personal energies or what you might call the deeper personality or soul identity.
Questioner: Let me make an analogy that I have just thought of.
A sevenstringed musical instrument may be played by deflecting each string a full deflection and releasing it producing notes.
instead of producing the notes this way the individual creative personality could deflect each string the proper amount in the proper sequence producing music. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
In the balanced individual the energies lie waiting for the hand of the Creator to pluck harmony.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 66
Questioner: Would you please list the polarities within the body which are related to the balancing of the energy centers of the various bodies of the unmanifested entity?
Ra: I am Ra. In this question there lies a great deal of thought which we appreciate.
It is possible that the question itself may serve to aid meditations upon this particular subject.
Each unmanifested self is unique.
The basic polarities have to do with the balanced vibratory rates and relationships between the first three energy centers and to a lesser extent, each of the other energy centers?
May we answer more specifically?
Questioner: Possibly in the next session we will expand on that.
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.
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 42
Questioner: Jim has a personal question that is not to be published.
He asks, “It seems that my balancing work has shifted from more peripheral concerns such as patience/impatience, to learning to open myself in unconditional love, to accepting my self as whole and perfect, and then to accepting my self as the Creator.
If this is a normal progression of focus for balancing, wouldn’t it be more efficient once this is discovered for a person to work on the acceptance of the self as Creator rather than work peripherally on the secondary and tertiary results of not accepting the self?”
Ra: I am Ra. The term efficiency has misleading connotations.
In the context of doing work in the disciplines of the personality, in order to be of more full efficiency in the central acceptance of the self, it is first quite necessary to know the distortions of the self which the entity is accepting.
Each thought and action needs must then be scrutinized for the precise foundation of the distortions of any reactions.
This process shall lead to the more central task of acceptance.
However, the architrave must be in place before the structure is builded.
