The Law of One, Book IV, Session 76
Questioner: Were Ra’s teachings focusing on the archetypes for this Logos and the methods of achieving a very close approach to the archetypical configuration? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct without being true.
We, of Ra, are humble messengers of the Law of One.
We seek to teach/learn this single law.
During the space/time of the Egyptian teach/learning we worked to bring the mind complex, the body complex, and the spirit complex into an initiated state in which the entity could contact intelligent energy and so become teach/learner itself so that healing and the fruits of study could be offered to all.
The study of the roots of mind is a portion of the vivification of the mind complex and, as we have noted, the thorough study of the portion of the roots of mind called archetypical is an interesting and necessary portion of the process as a whole.
Questioner: Is there, in Ra’s opinion, any present day value for the use of the tarot as an aid in the evolutionary process?
Ra: I am Ra. We shall repeat information.
It is appropriate to study one form of constructed and organized distortion of the archetypical mind in depth in order to arrive at the position of being able to become and to experience archetypes at will.
You have three basic choices.
You may choose astrology,
the twelve signs, as you call these portions of your planet’s energy web, and what has been called the ten planets.
You may choose the tarot
with its twenty-two so-called Major Arcana.
You may choose the study of the so-called Tree of Life
with its ten Sephiroth and the twenty-two relationships between the stations.
It is well to investigate each discipline, not as a dilettante, but as one who seeks the touchstone, one who wishes to feel the pull of the magnet.
One of these studies will be more attractive to the seeker.
Let the seeker, then, investigate the archetypical mind using, basically, one of these three disciplines.
After a period of study, the discipline mastered sufficiently, the seeker may then complete the more important step:
that is, the moving beyond the written in order to express in an unique fashion its understanding, if you may again pardon the noun, of the archetypical mind.
Questioner: Would I be correct in saying that the archetypes of this particular Logos are somewhat unique with respect to the rest of the creation?
The systems of study that we have just talked about would not translate quickly or easily in other parts of the creation.
This is a very difficult question to state.
Could you clear that up for me?
Ra: I am Ra. We may draw from the welter of statement which you offer the question we believe you ask.
Please requestion if we have mistaken your query.
The archetypical mind is that mind which is peculiar to the Logos under which influence you are at this space/time distorting your experiences.
There is no other Logos the archetypical mind of which would be the same any more than the stars would appear the same from another planet in another galaxy.
You may correctly infer that the closer Logoi are indeed closer in archetypes.
Questioner: Since Ra evolved initially on Venus Ra is of the same archetypical origin as that which we experience here. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: But I am assuming that the concepts of the tarot and the magical concepts of the Tree of Life, etc. were not in use by Ra.
I suspect, possibly, some form of astrology was a previous Ra concept.
This is just a guess.
Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. To express Ra’s methods of study of the archetypical mind under the system of distortions which we enjoyed would be to skew your own judgment of that which is appropriate for the system of distortions forming the conditions in which you learn/teach.
Therefore, we must invoke the Law of Confusion.

Questioner: In that case, it seems that a thorough knowledge of the precise nature of these philosophical foundations would be of primary importance to the study of evolution of mind, body, and spirit, and I would like to carefully go through each, starting with the mind.
Is this agreeable with Ra?
Ra: I am Ra. This is agreeable with two requests which must be made.
Firstly, that an attempt be made to state the student’s grasp of each archetype.
We may then comment.
We cannot teach/learn to the extent of learn/teaching.
Secondly, we request that it be constantly kept before the mind, as the candle before the eye, that each mind/body/spirit complex shall and should and, indeed, must perceive each archetype, if you use this convenient term, in its own way.
Therefore, you may see that precision is not the goal; rather the quality of general concept complex perception is the goal.
