I had to sit and think about how to even begin to tackle discussing this part of my journey. I suppose how I came across this work would be a good place to start. Having developed the interest in channeling or more general, spirit guide contact, I came across David Wilcock. I had always seen him pop up from time to time in my research; however I never really looked too much into it because on YouTube, for example, the video titles would come across as pretty ridiculous. It wasn’t until I became very intrigued with the Gaia series “Cosmic Disclosure” by David Wilcock that I had started to take notice (I will get more into the series in a later post). What peaked my interest, is the topic of the Law of One kept coming up in the conversations. After a brief research I realized this was a body of work that contained every possible subject in spirituality and the universe you could think of. After reading about the source of the material and how it came about, this was some pretty outrageous stuff, even for me.
Law of One is a collection of 5 books channeled by L/L Research (Carla Rueckert, Don Elkins, and Jim McCarty) between 1981 and 1984. The books are comprised of 106 channeled sessions. David Wilcock created a study guide, summarizing the books where he states, “Ra’s words, brought through in 1981, are arguably the ultimate source of accurate ET information to have emerged in modern history.”
Introduction By Don Elkins
Here is an excerpt by Don Elkins from the Introduction of Book 1.
“Since our experimental work began, and even before we officially formed a research group, there was considerable confusion about the nature of our research. I would like to state that I consider my point of view to be purely scientific. Many readers of this material have used as a basis for its evaluation a previously assumed philosophical bias which has ranged from what I would call objectively scientific to subjectively theological. It is not the purpose of our research group to attempt to do anything other than make experimental data available. Each reader will undoubtedly reach his own unique conclusion about the meaning of this body of data.
In recent years there has been much controversy about phenomena that were apparently incompatible with accepted methods of scientific research. This included such things as UFOs, mental metal-bending, psychic surgery, and many other seemingly miraculous happenings.
To prove or disprove any of these alleged phenomena is certainly not properly the task of the casual observer. However, most of the public opinion that has been generated with respect to these events seems to be the product of quick and superficial investigation. After almost thirty years of research and experimentation in the area of so-called paranormal phenomena, I must recommend extreme caution in reaching a conclusion. If it is possible to make money, gain notoriety, or have fun from perpetrating a hoax, then someone usually does it. Consequently, paranormal or psychic areas are prime targets for the trickster, and the careful researcher usually has to observe copious amounts of ‘garbage’ data in order to find a possible imbedded gem of truth. This is especially true of Philippine psychic surgery and the large area of spirit communication in general.
It seems to me that the presently accepted scientific paradigm is less than adequate. It is my opinion that our present natural philosophy is a very special case of a much more general case yet to be unveiled. It is my hope that our research is in the direction of this discovery. After assimilating several million words of alleged extraterrestrial communication, it is also my opinion that this book and the subsequent volumes of the Ra material contain the most useful information that I have discovered. As a result of all of this delving into the rather confusing subjects of UFOlogy and parapsychology, I, of course, have formed my current opinion of how things ‘really are.’ This opinion may change at any time as I become aware of future information. This book is not intended to be a treatise of my opinion, so I will not attempt to defend its validity. The following is the best guess I can make about what we think we are doing. Only time will tell as to the accuracy of this guess.
Our research group uses what I prefer to call ‘tuned trance telepathy’ to communicate with an extraterrestrial race called Ra…
Probably the most difficult thing to understand about Ra is its nature. Ra is a sixth-density social memory complex. Since Earth is near the end of the third-density cycle of evolution, this means that Ra is three evolutionary cycles ahead of us. In other words, Ra’s present state of evolution is millions of years in advance of Earthman’s…
At this writing we have completed over 100 sessions of experimental communications with Ra. This approximate 300,000 words of information has suggested to me a possibly more adequate scientific paradigm. Only time and future will serve to validate and expand this paradigm.
How To Proceed
On 05-21-2018 I was having a very exceptional day of synchronicities and creative flow. I kept a spiritual journal of this day. One of the moments I had that day, I was developing a new meditation technique using VR (Virtual Reality) and had the feeling that what I was seeing and experiencing in that moment was what I felt the spirit world beyond the third density – or existence past this 3D existence on Earth, looked like. It was a world of light and light beings. It felt like a world that felt like home. This idea of the Universe was what I had come to understand through the Law Of One.
I was reminded of how profoundly this body of work has changed me on every level. What is so tragic about the whole thing, is I don’t know a single person close to me who could possibly come to believe this material. Not only that, but all of this I’ve come to know. As Joe Rogan stated in one of his stand ups that is applicable here, “I don’t get it. I get that you get it, but I don’t get it.” I stepped away from writing this blog for a couple weeks because I didn’t know how to proceed. How do you plead your case, for what I consider, to possibly be, the most important written work of modern times, that is so out there that no one could possibly believe it.
Don Elkins wrote…
“The first thing to say about the UFO phenomenon is that it is extraordinarily strange. The serious researcher, as he reads more and more and does more and more field research, finds himself less and less able to talk about the UFO phenomenon in a sensible and “down to Earth” way. Well over half the people in the United States have said in nationwide polls that they believe that UFOs are real, and television series and motion pictures reflect the widespread interest in this subject. Yet, there are few researchers who would pretend to be able to understand the phenomenon completely. Dr. J. Allen Hynek (head of Project Blue Book) has called this quality of the research the “high strangeness’ factor and has linked the amount of high strangeness with the probable validity of the case.”
The Biggest Lesson In My Journey
This led to what I consider the most important lesson of my journey. I feel pretty silly in that, it was in front of me all along. I wrote about it in two of my previous blogs and yet I never put it together. I talk about it in detail in How It Began – Pt 3 – Eric Pepin, the Psychic and the Metaphysical Connection under the subtitle Believing. In meditation, you have to engage the experience believing and without fear that everything is a sign, a signal, a message, a meaning. In psychic practice you have to do the same. You HAVE to believe it. It’s not till AFTER the experience, that you evaluate, analyze, and judge. It is then you decide what to believe.
Carla Rueckert, who was the channeler for the project described her struggles learning to channel in the introduction in Book 1.
As we sat meditating, according to the instructions, everyone in the group except me began to make strange noises with their mouths. For my part, my main difficulty during those first six months was keeping a straight face and not laughing as the sessions gradually became a raucous symphony of guttural clicks, slurps, and tongue flops.
The nature of the experiment changed drastically when the group was visited by a contactee from Detroit. The contactee sat down with the group and almost immediately was contacted apparently by telepathic impression saying: “Why don’t you speak the thoughts that are on your minds? We are attempting to use you as instruments of communication, but you are all blocked through fear that you will not be speaking the proper words.” Through this instrument, Walter Rogers of Detroit, Michigan, the group was instructed to refrain from analysis, to speak the thoughts and to analyze the communication only after it had been completed.
In my other entry, How It Began – Pt 5 – ET’s and Spirituality under the subsection Reality Check I state,
“I often find that after I make that leap of faith, as I dive further into the rabbit hole, those leaps of faith become validated through the knowledge I acquired in going deeper. In essence, I don’t think I would have come to the profound understanding of the universe that I have gained without taking those leaps of faith. It was only then, that I was able to find the validations in those leaps of faith that had got me there to begin with.”
It was in this moment that I realized, that I was applying to individual instances, unconsciously, where I needed to maintain momentum in trying to evolve what I’ve come to know and believe. Only realizing after reflection (writing this blog) what it is I was actually doing.
Reserve Your Judgement
You always hear the terms, “reserve your judgement till the end”, or “approach it with an open mind”, but I never really thought about what that really entails. If I tell you to read the Law of One and “approach it with an open mind” and “reserve your judgement till the end”, it means that you have to approach it without any preconceived notion – like I don’t believe in channeling. This is a book of everything all at once. I describe in How It Began – Pt 5 – ET’s and Spirituality under Managing TMI (Too Much Information), about when we need to digest something incredible, we need to do it 10% at a time or we will never be able to believe it. It’s too much of a shock to our current beliefs, but in this case, there is just too much to be able to apply that approach. It means, that to truly digest what is being offered here, you can’t analyze and judge as you go, because if you do, you are then not properly allowing yourself to “reserve your judgement”.
In order to do that, you have to read it as if you believe every word. Then when you’ve finished, make your judgement in what it is you wish to believe. This is critical in approaching this material. You will find validations to this material come up unexpectedly all around in spiritual, metaphysical, and ET subject matter once you know the material. As I stated,
“I often find that after I make that leap of faith, as I dive further into the rabbit hole, those leaps of faith become validated through the knowledge I acquired in going deeper.”
Carla Rueckert also had this important message…
“This last point is an important one when talking about psychic research of any kind. Don has always said that one of my assets as a research associate is my great gullibility. Almost anyone can play a joke on me because I do not catch on quickly. I have a way of taking things as they come and accepting them at face value and only afterwards analyzing what has occurred. This gullibility is a vital factor in obtaining good results in paranormal research. A desire for proof will inevitably lead to null results and voided experiments. An open mind, one willing to be gullible, leads its possessor to a kind of subjective and personal certainty which does not equal proof as it cannot be systematically reproduced in others. However, this subjective knowing is a central part of the spiritual evolution to which Ra speaks so compellingly in this volume and which we have researched for many years now.”
It is certainly interesting that the concept of faith, believing, gullibility is in fact necessary in order to expand the mind to places its never gone before. Else judgement and analysis will cause you to retract from proceeding any further to where the answers may be found. Furthermore, in regards to the experiences, analysis during an experience will hinder the results of the experience thereby justifying the judgment.
Carla describes this in their research…
“Don states that telepathic experiments between himself and Uri Geller have been totally successful. However, since they were deliberately not performed under rigorous scientific control, they could not be included in any orthodox report. It is, in fact, our opinion that the rigorous controls have a dampening effect on the outcome of any experiment of this type.”
Ironically, in my journey, running from my family’s roots in religion for the reasons of the absurdity of faith, it is faith that I found to be the key to enlightenment. I’ve always run from that word because of its stigma with Christian religions. Its a word I feel uncomfortable with as a result. I still feel very strongly against religious institutes themselves but the parallels to the core teachings are unmistakable. Without faith in the approach to this material, and almost all of the other facets of this journey, I never would have evolved to who I’ve become today. Where with each step of faith justifies and validates the previous step. This is the only way to evolve past your current beliefs and understanding of all things in the universe.
What Is The Law Of One
I decided not go into details about the books. To do so, i think, would be to elicit a premature judgment to the reader. I will save specific details for later posts which I will issue ‘spoiler alerts’ for those who have not read it. haha.
I will say though, is the Law of One is not a religion. It is about the laws that govern the universe. It does not condemn, discredit, or conflict with religion; although it identifies many distortions that have corrupted the intended messages. The material provides a cohesive bridge of understanding between religions as spiritual paths to the same truth. It provides the objective understanding of positive and negative polarities, and the evolution and the ascension of each. It is about the evolution of life itself. You will discover cosmic events that have shaped our universe, our world, and our species. It also discusses in beautiful detail, the essence, and meaning of life. After reading this material you will be inspired by life, provided conscious guidance on how you may wish to live, and it will dissolve your fear death. Now, if THAT does not peak your interest and beg, deep into your being, the need to investigate further, then you are not ready.
On a personal level, It has brought solidifying validation to so many of my previous beliefs, beliefs I felt even before this journey began. More-so, it has provided me a guide to the universe and myself, from the past, present, and future self. It has given me an even more spectacular view of our journey and the universe that far exceeds what I had dreamed of. A universe so full of hope, diversity, complexity, and rich with detail in history and purpose.
Where To Begin
Begin by reading David Wilcock’s study guide for the Law of One. This should provide you with enough foundation for you to understand the books. After you have finished, then decide. For me… I choose to believe, and I am a better human being for it. I now see everything through the eyes of a child – with wonder, compassion, awe, curiosity, and adventure. What better way to live a life? In the end, whether you choose to believe or not to believe, one thing is for certain, you will be inspired. So either way, this tells me, I’m on the right path…
And so the journey continues …
