The Law of One, Book III, Session 61
Questioner: I would like to ask questions about healing exercises.
The first is, in the healing exercises concerning the body, what do you mean by the disciplines of the body having to do with the balance between love and wisdom in the use of the body in its natural functions?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall speak more briefly than usual due to this instrument’s use of the transferred energy.
We, therefore, request further queries if our reply is not sufficient.
The body complex has natural functions.
Many of these have to do with the unmanifested self and are normally not subject to the need for balancing.
There are natural functions which have to do with other-self.
Among these are
the sexual life, and
those times when the company of another is craved to combat the type of loneliness which is the natural function of the body as opposed to those types of loneliness which are of the mind/emotion complex or of the spirit.
When these natural functions
may be observed in the daily life they may be examined in order that the love of self and love of other-self versus the wisdom regarding the use of natural functions may be observed.
There are many fantasies and stray thoughts which may be examined in most of your peoples in this balancing process.
Equally to be balanced is the withdrawal from the need for these natural functions with regard to other-self.
On the one hand
there is an excess of love.
It must be determined whether this is love of self or other-self or both.
On the other hand
there is an over-balance towards wisdom.
It is well to know the body complex so that it is an ally, balanced and ready to be clearly used as a tool, for each bodily function may be used in higher and higher, if you will, complexes of energy with other-self.
No matter what the behavior, the important balancing is the understanding of each interaction on this level with other-selves so that whether the balance may be love/wisdom or wisdom/love, the other-self is seen by the self in a balanced configuration and the self is thus freed for further work.
Questioner: Then the second question is, could you give an example of how feelings affect portions of the body and the sensations of the body?
Ra: I am Ra. It is nearly impossible to speak generally of these mechanisms, for each entity of proper seniority has its own programming.
Of the less aware entities we may say that the connection will often seem random as the higher self continues producing catalyst until a bias occurs.
In each programmed individual the sensitivities are far more active and, as we have said, that catalyst not used fully by the mind and spirit is given to the body.
Thus you may see in this entity
the numbing of the arms and the hands signifying this entity’s failure to surrender to the loss of control over the life.
Thus this drama is enacted in the physical distortion complex.
In the questioner
we may see the desire not to be carrying the load it carries given as physical manifestation of the soreness of those muscles for carrying used.
That which is truly needed to be carried is a preincarnative responsibility which seems highly inconvenient.
In the case of the scribe
we see a weariness and numbness of feelings ensuing from lack of using catalyst designed to sensitize this entity to quite significant influxes of unfamiliar distortion complexes of the mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
As the numbness removes itself from the higher or more responsive complexes the bodily complex distortions will vanish.
This is true also of the other examples.
We would note at this time that the totally efficient use of catalyst upon your plane is extremely rare.
Questioner: Could you tell me how you are able to give us information like this with respect to the first distortion or Law of Confusion?
Ra: I am Ra. Each of those is already aware of this information.
Any other reader may extract the heart of meaning from this discussion without interest as to the examples’ sources.
If each was not fully aware of these answers we could not speak.
It is interesting that in many of your queries you ask for confirmation rather information.
This is acceptable to us.
Questioner: The third question that I have here is, could you give examples of bodily polarity?
Ra: I am Ra. Within the body there are many polarities which relate to the balancing of the energy centers of the various bodies of the unmanifested entity.
It is well to explore these polarities for work in healing.
Each entity is, of course, a potential polarized portion of an other-self.
Questioner: The last question here says that it would seem the proper balancing exercises for all the sensations of the body would be some sort of inactivity such as meditation or contemplation.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is largely incorrect.
The balancing requires a meditative state in order for the work to be done.
However, the balancing of sensation has to do with an analysis of the sensation with especial respect to any unbalanced leaning between the love and the wisdom or the positive and the negative.
Then whatever is lacking in the balanced sensation is, as in all balancing, allowed to come into the being after the sensation is remembered and recalled in such detail as to overwhelm the senses.
The Law of One, Book III, Session 64
Questioner: In the healing exercises, when you say examine the sensations of the body, do you mean those sensations available to the body via the five senses or in relation to the natural functions of the body such as touching, loving, sexual sharing, and company, or are you speaking of something else altogether?
Ra: I am Ra.
The questioner may perceive its body complex at this moment.
It is experiencing sensations.
Most of these sensations or in this case, nearly all of them, are transient and without interest.
However, the body is the creature of the mind.
Certain sensations carry importance due to the charge or power which is felt by the mind upon the experience of this sensation.
For instance, at this space/time nexus one sensation is carrying a powerful charge and may be examined.
This is the sensation of what you call the distortion towards discomfort due to the cramped position of the body complex during this working.
In balancing you would then explore this sensation.
Why is this sensation powerful?
Because it was chosen in order that the entity might be of service-to-others in energizing this contact.
Each sensation that leaves the aftertaste of meaning upon the mind, that leaves the taste within the memory shall be examined.
These are the sensations of which we speak.
May we answer any brief queries before we leave this instrument?
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 85
Questioner: After the veiling process certain veiled functions or activities must have been paramount in creating evolution in the desired polarized directions.
I was just wondering which of these had the greatest effect on polarization?
Ra: I am Ra. The most effectual veiling was that of the mind.
Questioner: I would like to carry that on to find out what specific functions of the mind were most effectual and the three or four most effective changes brought about to create the polarization.
Ra: I am Ra. This is an interesting query.
The primary veiling was of such significance that it may be seen to be analogous to the mantling of the Earth over all the jewels within the Earth’s crust; whereas previously all facets of the Creator were consciously known.
After the veiling, almost no facets of the Creator were known to the mind.
Almost all was buried beneath the veil.
If one were to attempt to list those functions of mind most significant in that they might be of aid in polarization, one would need to begin with the faculty of visioning, envisioning, or far-seeing.
Without the veil the mind was not caught in your illusory time.
With the veil space/time is the only obvious possibility for experience.
Also upon the list of significant veiled functions of the mind would be that of dreaming.
The so-called dreaming contains a great deal which, if made available to the conscious mind and used, shall aid it in polarization to a great extent.
The third function of the mind which is significant and which has been veiled is that of the knowing of the body.
The knowledge of and control over the body, having been lost to a great extent in the veiling process, is thusly lost from the experience of the seeker.
Its knowledge before the veiling is of small use.
Its knowledge after the veiling, and in the face of what is now a dense illusion of separation of body complex from mind complex, is quite significant.
Perhaps the most important and significant function that occurred due to the veiling of the mind from itself is not in itself a function of mind but rather is a product of the potential created by this veiling.
This is the faculty of will or pure desire.
We may ask for brief queries at this time.
Although there is energy remaining for this working, we are reluctant to continue this contact, experiencing continual variations due to pain flares, as you call this distortion.
Although we are unaware of any misgiven material we are aware that there have been several points during which our channel was less than optimal.
This instrument is most faithful but we do not wish to misuse this instrument.
Please query as you will.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 86
Questioner: In the last session you had mentioned the properties precipitating from the veiling of the mind; the first being envisioning or farseeing.
Would you explain the meaning of that?
Ra: I am Ra. Your language is not overstrewn with non-emotional terms for the functional qualities of what is now termed unconscious mind.
The nature of mind is something which we have requested that you ponder.
However, it is, shall we say, clear enough to the casual observer that we may share some thoughts with you without infringing upon your free learn/teaching experiences.
The nature of the unconscious is of the nature of concept rather than word.
Consequently, before the veiling the use of the deeper mind was that of the use of unspoken concept.
You may consider the emotive and connotative aspects of a melody.
One could call out, in some stylized fashion, the terms for the notes of the melody.
One could say, quarter note A, quarter note A, quarter note A, whole note F.
This bears little resemblance to the beginning of the melody of one of your composer’s most influential melodies, that known to you as a symbol of victory.
This is the nature of the deeper mind.
There are only stylized methods with which to discuss its functions.
Thusly our descriptions of this portion of the mind, as well as the same portions of body and spirit, were given terms such as “far-seeing,” indicating that the nature of penetration of the veiled portion of the mind may be likened unto the journey too rich and exotic to contemplate adequate describing thereof.

Session 105, October 19, 1983
Questioner: Could you please tell me what caused Jim’s kidney problem to return, and what can be done to heal it?
Ra: I am Ra. The entity, Jim, determined that it would cleanse itself and thus would spend time/space and space/time in pursuit and contemplation of perfection.
The dedication to this working was intensified until the mind/body/spirit complex rang in harmony with this intention.
The entity did not grasp the literal way in which metaphysical intentions are translated by the body complex of one working in utter unity of purpose.
The entity began the period of prayer, fasting, penitence, and rejoicing.
The body complex, which was not yet fully recovered from the nephrotic syndrome, began to systematically cleanse each organ, sending all the detritus that was not perfect through kidneys which were not given enough liquid to dilute the toxins being released.
The toxins stayed with the body complex and reactivated a purely physical illness.
There is no metaphysical portion in this relapse.
The healing is taking place in manifestation of an affirmation of body complex health which, barring untoward circumstance, shall be completely efficacious.
