The Law of One, Book IV, Session 87
Questioner: I’m sorry for getting confused on my question here in not asking it correctly.
There is a philosophical point of central importance that I am trying to clear up here.
It has to do with the fact that fourth-density negative seems to be aware of the first distortion.
They are in a nonveiled condition, and they seem to use this knowledge of the first distortion to maintain the situation that they maintain in contacts with this planet.
I am trying to extract their ability to understand the mechanism of the first distortion and the consequences of the veiling process and still remain in a mental configuration of separation on the negative path.
I hope that I have made myself clear there.
I have had a hard time asking this question.
Ra: I am Ra. The answer may still not satisfy the questioner.
We ask that you pursue it until you are satisfied.
The fourth-density negative entity
has made the choice available to each at third-density harvest.
It is aware of the full array of possible methods of viewing the universe of the one Creator and it is convinced that the ignoring and non-use of the green-ray energy center will be the method most efficient in providing harvestability of fourth density.
Its operations among those of third density
which have not yet made this choice are designed to offer to each the opportunity to consider the self-serving polarity and its possible attractiveness.

Questioner: I’m at a loss to know the significance of the serpents that adorn the head of the entity on this drawing.
Are they of Ra and, if so, what do they stand for?
Ra: I am Ra. They are cultural in nature.
In the culture to which these images were given the serpent was the symbol of wisdom.
Indeed, to the general user of these images perhaps the most accurate connotation of this portion of the concept complexes might be the realization that the serpent is that which is powerful magically.
In the positive sense
this means that the serpent will appear at the indigo-ray site upon the body of the image figures.
When a negative connotation is intended
one may find the serpent at the solar plexus center.
Questioner: Is there any significance to the serpent?
Is there any polarity to the serpent as we experience it in this illusion?
Ra: I am Ra. We assume that you question the serpent as used in these images rather than the second-density life form which is a portion of your experience.
There is a significance to the serpent form in a culture which coexists with your own but which is not your own; that is, the serpent is symbol of that which some call the kundalini and which we have discussed in previous material.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 85
Questioner: Since our fifth-density companion has been monitoring our communication with Ra it has been made aware of the veiling process of which we have been speaking.
It seems to me that conscious knowledge and acceptance of the fact that this veiling process was used for the purpose for which it was used would make it difficult to maintain high negative polarization.
Could you clear up my thinking on that, please?
Ra: I am Ra. We are unsure as to our success in realigning your modes of mentation.
We may, however, comment.
The polarization process, as it enters fourth density, is one which occurs with full knowledge of the veiling process which has taken place in third density.
This veiling process is that which is a portion of the third-density experience.
The knowledge and memory of the outcome of this and all portions of the third-density experience informs the higher-density polarized entity.
It, however, does not influence the choice which has been made and which is the basis for further work past third density in polarization.
Those which have chosen the service-to-others [service-to-self5] path have simply used the veiling process in order to potentiate that which is not.
This is an entirely acceptable method of self-knowledge of and by the Creator.
Questioner: You just stated that those who are on the service-to-others path use the veiling process to potentiate that which is not.
I believe that I am correct in repeating what you said.
Is that correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Yes.
Questioner: Then the service-to-others path has potentiated that which is not.
Could you expand that a little bit so that I could understand it a little better?
Ra: I am Ra. If you see the energy centers in their various colors completing the spectrum you may see that the service-to-others(self) choice is one which denies the very center of the spectrum; that being universal love.
Therefore, all that is built upon the penetration of the light of harvestable quality by such entities is based upon an omission.
This omission shall manifest in fourth density as the love of self; that is, the fullest expression of the orange and yellow energy centers which then are used to potentiate communication and adepthood.
When fifth-density refinement has been achieved
that which is not is carried further, the wisdom density being explored by entities which have no compassion, no universal love.
They experience that which they wish by free choice, being of the earnest opinion that green-ray energy is folly.
That which is not
may be seen as a self-imposed darkness in which harmony is turned into an eternal disharmony.
that which is not
cannot endure throughout the octave of third density and, as darkness eventually calls the light, so does that which is not eventually call that which is.
5 Ra corrects this error in the next two answers.
Questioner: I believe that there were salient errors in the communication that we just completed because of transmission difficulties.
Are you aware of these errors?
Ra: I am Ra. We are unaware of errors although this instrument is experiencing flares of pain, as you call this distortion.
We welcome and encourage your perceptions in correcting any errors in transmission.
Questioner: I think that the statement that was made when we were speaking about the service-to-others path was incorrect.
Would you check that, please?
Ra: I am Ra. May we ask that you be apprised of our intention to have spoken of the service-to-self path as the path of that which is not.
Questioner: I am interested in the problem that we sometimes have with the transmission since the word “others” was used three times in this transmission rather than the word “self.”
Could you give me an idea of this problem which could create a discrepancy in communication?
Ra: I am Ra.
we may note the clumsiness of language and our unfamiliarity with it in our native, shall we say, experience.
we may point out that once we have miscalled or misnumbered an event or thing, that referent is quite likely to be reused for some transmission time, as you call this measurement, due to our original error having gone undetected by ourselves.

Session 101, December 21, 1982
Questioner: Thank you.
What has caused the swelling in Jim’s body, and what can be done to heal it?
Ra: I am Ra. For the answer to this query we must begin with the consideration of the serpent, signifying wisdom.
This symbol has the value of the ease of viewing the two faces of the one who is wise.
adorns the brow indicating indigo-ray work.
by which we intend to signify expressions which effectually separate the self from the other-self, may be symbolized by poison of the fangs.
To use that which a mind/body/spirit complex has gained of wisdom for the uses of separation is to invite the fatal bite of that wisdom’s darker side.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 17
Questioner: I don’t wish to take up extra time asking questions over again.
Some areas I consider important enough in relation to the Law of One to ask questions in a different way in order to get another perspective in the answer.
In the book Oahspe it states that if an entity goes over fifty one percent service to others and is less than fifty percent service to self, then that entity is harvestable. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct if the harvesting is to be for the positive fourth dimensional level.
Questioner: What is to be the entity’s percentage if he is to be harvested for the negative?
Ra: I am Ra. The entity who wishes to pursue the path of service to self must attain a grade of five, that is five percent service to others, ninety-five percent service to self.
It must approach totality.
The negative path is quite difficult to attain harvestability upon and requires great dedication.
Questioner: Why is the negative path so much more difficult to attain harvestability upon than the positive?
Ra: I am Ra. This is due to a distortion of the Law of One which indicates that the gateway to intelligent infinity be a gateway at the end of a straight and narrow path as you may call it.
To attain fifty-one percent dedication to the welfare of other-selves is as difficult as attaining a grade of five percent dedication to otherselves.
The, shall we say, sinkhole of indifference is between those two.
Questioner: Then if an entity is harvested into the fourth density with a grade of fifty-one percent for others and forty-nine percent for self, what level of the fourth density would he go into?
I am assuming that there are different levels of the fourth density.
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Each enters that sub-density which vibrates in accordance with the entity’s understanding.
Questioner: How many levels do we have here in the third density at this time?
Ra: I am Ra. The third density has an infinite number of levels.
Questioner: I would like to make a point clear now that I am sure of myself.
The people of this planet, following any religion or no religion at all, or having no intellectual knowledge at all of the Law of One, can still be harvested into the fourth density if they are of that vibration.
Is that not correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
However, you will find few who are harvestable whose radiance does not cause others to be aware of their, what you may call, spirituality, the quality of the mind/body/spirit complex distortion.
Thus, it is not particularly probable that an entity would be completely unknown to his immediate acquaintances as an unusually radiant personality, even were this individual not caught up in any of the distortions of your so-called religious systems.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 78
Questioner: Then we have, at the beginning of this galactic evolution, an archetypical mind that is the product of the previous octave which this galaxy then used as and acts upon under the first distortion so as to allow for what we experience as polarity.
Was there any concept of polarity carried through from the previous octave in the sense of service-to-others or serviceto-self polarity?
Ra: I am Ra. There was polarity in the sense of the mover and the moved.
There was no polarity in the sense of service-to-self and service-to-others.
Questioner: Then the first experiences, as you say, were in monochrome.
Was the concept of the seven densities of vibration with the evolutionary process taking place in discrete densities carried through from the previous octave?
Ra: I am Ra. To the limits of our knowledge, which are narrow, the ways of the octave are without time; that is, there are seven densities in each creation infinitely.
Questioner: Then I am assuming that the central suns of our galaxy, in starting the evolutionary process in this galaxy, provided for, in their plans, the refinement of consciousness through the densities just as we experience it here.
However, they did not conceive of the polarization of consciousness with respect to service-to-self and service-to-others. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 81
Questioner: You stated earlier that toward the center of this galaxy is what, to use a poor term, you could call the older portion where you would find no service-to-self polarization.
Am I correct in assuming that this is true with the other galaxies with which Wanderers from Ra have experience?
At the center of these galaxies only the service-to-others polarity exists and the experiment started farther out toward the rim of the galaxy?
Ra: I am Ra. Various Logoi and sub-Logoi had various methods of arriving at the discovery of the efficiency of free will in intensifying the experience of the Creator by the Creator.
However, in each case this has been a pattern.
Questioner: You mean then that the pattern is that the service-to-self polarization appeared farther out from the center of the galactic spiral?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 93
Questioner: Thank you.
You have stated previously that the foundation of our present illusion is the concept of polarity.
I would like to ask, since we have defined the two polarities as service-to-others and service-to-self, is there a more complete or eloquent or enlightening definition of these polarities or any more information that we don’t have at this time that you could give on the two ends of the poles that would give us a better insight into the nature of polarity itself?
Ra: I am Ra. It is unlikely that there is a more pithy or eloquent description of the polarities of third density than service-to-others and service-to-self due to the nature of the mind/body/spirit complexes’ distortions towards perceiving concepts relating to philosophy in terms of ethics or activity.
However, we might consider the polarities using slightly variant terms.
In this way a possible enrichment of insight might be achieved for some.
One might consider the polarities with the literal nature enjoyed by the physical polarity of the magnet.
The negative and positive,
with electrical characteristics, may be seen to be just as in the physical sense.
It is to be noted in this context that it is quite impossible to judge the polarity of an act or an entity, just as it is impossible to judge the relative goodness of the negative and positive poles of the magnet.
Another method of viewing polarities might involve the concept of radiation/absorption.
That which is positive is radiant;
that which is negative is absorbent.
Questioner: Now, if I understand correctly, prior to the veiling process the electrical polarities, the polarities of radiation and absorption, all existed in some part of the creation, but the service-to-others/service-to-self polarity with which we are familiar had not evolved and only showed up after the veiling process as an addition to the list of possible polarities in the creation.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. No.
Questioner: Would you correct me on that?
Ra: I am Ra. The description of polarity as service-to-self and service-to-others, from the beginning of our creation, dwelt within the architecture of the primal Logos.
Before the veiling process the impact of actions taken by mind/body/spirits upon their consciousness was not palpable to a significant enough degree to allow the expression of this polarity to be significantly useful.
Over the period of what you would call time this expression of polarity did indeed work to alter the biases of mind/body/spirits so that they might eventually be harvested.
The veiling process made the polarity far more effective.
Questioner: I might make the analogy, then, in that when a polarization in the atmosphere occurs to create thunderstorms, lightening, and much activity, this more vivid experience could be likened to the polarization in consciousness which creates the more vivid experience.
Would this be appropriate as an analogy?
Ra: I am Ra. There is a shallowness to this analogy in that one entity’s attention might be focused upon a storm for the duration of the storm.
However, the storm producing conditions are not constant whereas the polarizing conditions are constant.
Given this disclaimer, we may agree with your analogy.
