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.
Jim McCarty’s eulogy for Carla Lisbeth Rueckert
Carla Lisbeth Rueckert-McCarty was born on July 16, 1943 in Lake Forest, IL. Carla was a child prodigy. At the age of 3 she could read the newspaper, speak French, and read music.
She would have started singing in the church choir then, but she wasn't strong enough to hold the Hymnal all the way through the processional, until the next year when she was four years old.
She was also the friendliest little girl her mother had ever seen. When they would take the bus to go downtown and shop, little Carla would wander up and down the aisle speaking to everyone who was on the bus.
She did not know a stranger. Her mother was mortified.
When she was born her left eye was pointed at her brow, and it was about a year later when surgery was able to correct the defect, and then she started wearing glasses.
A fascinating experience occurred because she had to wear glasses at such an early age.
One day, when she was 2 years old, and when it was time for her to take her afternoon nap, her mother put her in her crib next to the window and closed the Venetian blinds. Before she went to sleep, Carla took her glasses off and put them between the blinds which were drawn for her nap.
Then she laid down and saw that there was light coming through the slit in the Venetian blinds. When it went through her glasses it made a beam of light that she was able to use to slide out of her body and go to what seemed like a magic forest. The animals would communicate with her, colors were more vivid, and when she went to the center of the forest, there she would see Jesus.
He didn't look like the paintings you usually see. His hair was long, matted, and dusty from the road.
His robe was dusty too, and he never spoke a word. But when he held her hand and looked into her eyes, she immediately knew what unconditional love was.
This experience occurred many times over the next few years. When she was five years old she told her mom and dad about the experience, and they told her that it was not real.
It was in her mind. That she had made it up. So the experience never happened again.
But her devotion to Jesus as her Lord and Savior began then and never wavered throughout her life. And from that point on, love would become her way of looking at the world.
Those two parts of this experience never changed for her.

Ra's Comments on Carla (The Instrument/Channel)
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. Adonai.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 21
Questioner: I have a couple of questions that I don’t want to forget to ask in this period, so I will ask them first.
The first question is: Would the future content of this book be affected in any way if the instrument reads the material that we have already obtained?
Ra: I am Ra. The future, as you measure in time/space, communications which we offer through this instrument have no connection with the instrument’s mind complex.
This is due to two things:
the fidelity of the instrument in dedicating its will to the service of the infinite Creator;
the distortion/understanding of our social memory complex that the most efficient way to communicate material with as little distortion as possible, given the necessity of the use of sound vibration complexes, is to remove the conscious mind complex from the spirit/mind/body complex so that we may communicate without reference to any instrument’s orientation.
Questioner: Do you use the instrument’s vocabulary or your own vocabulary to communicate with us?
Ra: I am Ra. We use the vocabulary of the language with which you are familiar.
This is not the instrument’s vocabulary.
However, this particular mind/body/spirit complex retains the use of a sufficiently large number of sound vibration complexes that the distinction is often without any importance.
Session 22, February 10, 1981
Questioner: The instrument would like to ask a couple of questions of you.
The instrument would like to know why she smells the incense at various times during the day at various places?
Ra: I am Ra. This instrument has spent a lifetime in dedication to service.
This has brought this instrument to this nexus in space/time with the conscious and unconscious distortion towards service, with the further conscious distortion towards service by communication.
Each time, as you would put it, that we perform this working our social memory complex vibrational distortion meshes more firmly with this instrument’s unconscious distortions towards service.
Thus we are becoming a part of this instrument’s vibratory complex and it a part of ours.
This occurs upon the unconscious level, the level whereby the mind has gone down through to the roots of consciousness which you may call cosmic.
This instrument is not consciously aware of this slow changing of the meshing vibratory complex.
However, as the dedication on both levels continues, and the workings continue, there are signals sent from the unconscious in a symbolic manner.
Because this instrument is extremely keen in its sense of smell this association takes place unconsciously, and the thought-form of this odor is witnessed by the entity.
Questioner: Secondly, she would like to know why she feels more healthy now that she has begun these sessions and feels more healthy as time goes on?
Ra: I am Ra. This is a function of the free will of the entity.
This entity has, for many of your years, prayed a certain set of sound vibration complexes before opening to communication.
Before the trance state was achieved this prayer remained within the conscious portion of the mind complex and, though helpful, was not as effective as the consequence of this prayer, as you would call this vibrational sound complex, which then goes directly into the unconscious level, thus more critically affecting the communication from the spiritual complex.
Also, this entity has begun, due to this working, to accept certain limitations which it placed upon itself in order to set the stage for services such as it now performs.
This also is an aid to re-aligning the distortions of the physical complex with regard to pain.
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 18
Session 30, February 24, 1981
Questioner: The instrument would like to know if you could tell her whether or not this item which is called Sam Millar’s polarizer would help her physical well-being.
Could you do that?
Ra: I am Ra. As we scan the instrument we find anomalies of the magnetic field which are distorted towards our abilities to find narrow band channel into this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex.
The polarizer of which you speak, as it is, would not be helpful.
A careful reading of this instrument’s aura by those gifted in this area, and subsequent alterations of the magnetizing forces of this polarizer, would assist the entity, Sam, in creating such a polarizer that would be of some aid to the instrument.
However, we would suggest that no electrical or magnetic equipment not necessary for the recording of our words be brought into these sessions, for we wish no distortions that are not necessary.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 103
June 10, 1983
Questioner: I didn’t mean to cover previously covered material.
I was hoping-to add to this anything that we could do to specifically focus on at this time, the best possible thing that we or the instrument could do to improve these energies, the salient activity.
Ra: I am Ra. Before responding we ask your vigilance during pain flares as the channel is acceptable but is being distorted periodically by the severe physical distortions of the yellow-ray, chemical body of the instrument.
Those salient items for the support group are praise and thanksgiving in harmony.
These the group has accomplished with such a degree of acceptability that we cavil not at the harmony of the group.
As to the instrument, the journey from worth in action to worth in esse is arduous.
The entity has denied itself in order to be free of that which it calls addiction10.
This sort of martyrdom, and here we speak of the small but symbolically great sacrifice of the clothing, causes the entity to frame a selfhood in poorness which feeds unworthiness unless the poverty is seen to be true richness.
In other words, good works for the wrong reasons cause confusion and distortion.
We encourage the instrument to value itself and to see that its true requirements are valued by the self.
We suggest contemplation of true richness of being.
10 Carla made a New Year’s resolution to give up buying clothes for herself for one year.
