Book One

Book One

We are not a part of
time and, thus, are able to be with you in any of your times.The Law of One was channeled in the early 80’s by Carla Ruekert, with Don Elkins as questioner of Ra and James McCarty as scribe. Their methodology was different than that which exists with many who channel today, far more concerned with precision of location and physical state of the channel, or instrument as Ra refers to her, than at least appears to be the case with other channels. This series of books goes into a depth that no other channeled information gives us, other than the Seth material perhaps. A Course in Miracles gives Christians a new take on who they are and how to see their religion, but for those of us who are not Christian, we glean what we can from that text. Considering all of these efforts occurred around the same time period is telling. Other channels became active in the latter part of the 80’s, giving much of the same sort of overall message, albeit in their own fashion and continue to this day. I’m unaware, however, of anything new that shares this level of detail.

Its message is that of unity of all. We are each the Creator in individuated form. Any separation is a perception of form. However we as Creator use form to ascend through the densities of life. In present time, we exist in third density and are readying for ascension to fourth density of love and understanding. Our world took shape between first and second densities taking far longer than the third density in which we now exist.

Ra asserts to be an extraterrestrial presence in sixth density, and as with all life in the universe, one with all, who has made several contacts with us during our ancient history to bring the concept of the Law of One in an effort to help our collective spiritual evolution, planetary as well. Because the Earth is a life force in and of itself, it’s as much part of our ascension process as are we. They appeared to the Egyptians and Pharaoh Akhenaten who attempted to teach the Law of One to his people, however apparently the priests at the time distorted it for their own purposes. At some point during each time that Ra made contact, they left knowing that their purpose could not be achieved. They indicated through the instrument (channel) that they were making this current contact to try to undo any damage they might have inadvertently created during past contact and to try once again to give this important information to all of us.

The purpose wasn’t to create a religion from this information, but to disseminate the truth for each one of us to analyze and then choose our path forward, one of love and unity, or of fear and division. Apparently, there’s also a negative influence from the Orion system who has influence known as Dracos or Reptilians. They’ve had a negative influence throughout our history, guiding those on a path of self-service toward oppression and enslavement.

The other option is service to others which when in balance typically turns out to be the better option. It’s not that service to self is necessarily a problem because it could simply be that the individual pursues a self-disciplined life. It’s when service to self turns into power over others that it becomes destructive. But then the same thing can happen when we lose ourselves in others and forget to set boundaries. Service to others can be similarly oppressive when we don’t allow others to gain their experiences for themselves such as with a parent who never lets the children make their own mistakes. Either option is acceptable, service to self or others, on the path to ascension as long as in the process we act with love and respect.

Book One begins with a long preface that discusses the background of this great work. One passage is a quote from Ra that I thought might be a useful opening for this study.


Meditate upon the complete unity of yourself and all that you see. Do
this not once, and not simply in present circumstances, but at all times,
and especially in difficult circumstances. For insofar as you love and feel
at one with those things which are difficult for you, to that extent will
those circumstances be alleviated. This is not due to any laws within
our physical illusion, but is due to the Law of Love, for that body which
is of spirit, which is interpenetrated with the physical body, is higher
than your physical body, and those changes which you make by love
upon your spiritual body will, of necessity, reflect themselves within the
physical illusion.
All is one, my friends. My voice is now the voice of this instrument; my
thoughts are her thoughts. Please believe that the vibration we offer to
you is not a vibration of personality, but is a vibration of the Creator.
We are also channels. There is only one voice. Within this vibration, we
are self-consciously aware that this voice is the voice of the Creator. It is
simply a matter of lifting vibrations which are not so self-aware of the
Creator. All things will eventually come into harmony in relation to
your understanding.
Even if the universe for those around you remains disharmonious and
difficult, if your mind is stayed upon the unity of the Creator, your
own universe will become harmonious, and this is not by your doing
but by the simple love of the Creator. (pg 32)


What I find so fascinating about this is that essentially Ra is telling us to remain aligned with our Source Presence and so see all with the eyes of Source Vision, particularly when we’re experiencing difficulty. We’re to love in spite of what we see, or maybe because of it. Bless the experiences we have as our greatest teachers and love those who deliver them.

Given what we’re experiencing now in this world, I thought it might be a good idea to discuss all of this, even if only to suggest another focus.

We are the One Creator focused into individuated form. As we’ll see from the material presented in Book One, everyone else is our other-selves with no other difference than one of perception. The goal is to integrate that love for self and others into an understanding of our fundamental oneness as Creator.

My intention with this is to have five sections, one for each book with an introduction page like this one for each section. And with any luck I’ll be able to nest additional discussions under each section.

Session One

I’ll begin with Ra’s purpose here with us.

Questioner: Do you have a specific purpose, and if so, could you tell us
something of what your purpose is?

Ra: I am Ra. We communicate now. We are those who are of the Law of
One. In our vibration the polarities are harmonized; the complexities are
simplified; the paradoxes have a solution. We are one. That is our nature
and our purpose.

We are old upon your planet and have served with varying degrees of
success in transmitting the Law of One, of Unity, of Singleness to your
peoples. We have walked your planet. We have seen the faces of your
peoples. However, we now feel the great responsibility of staying in the
capacity of removing the distortions and powers that have been given to the
Law of One. We will continue in this, until, shall we say, your cycle is
appropriately ended. If not this one, then the next. We are not a part of
time and, thus, are able to be with you in any of your times.

Does this give you enough information from which to extract our purpose,
my brother?

Questioner: Yes. Thank you.

So apparently in their density, they have resolved the conflicts that continue to plague us. They self-identify as one entity and regard that truth as their nature and purpose. They live in awareness of their unified presence and in their contact with us sought to impart that truth. Given that their message was distorted by the priest caste of the time and continues to this day, they came back to try to clear up any misconceptions that have evolved over time. A Course in Miracles seeks to do the same thing with Christianity as its primary focus.

Plus, they intend to hang in there with us until their task is accomplished. And then it gets interesting:

We are not a part of time and, thus, are able to be with you in any of your times.

Think about that for a minute, or a million. Time is a reference point only. It doesn’t actually exist. Instead, there is only an unfolding present, continuous and eternal. It has always been and will always be. What Ra is telling us that we have far more control than we believe that we do. We can move within dimensions and exist in various densities. It’s a process that each one goes through in remembrance of our eternal oneness as the Creator. Irrespective of how it looks, we are one.
