– Third Density (To know good and evil then die.) & other Densities
A Little Cosmology / Eine Kleine Kosmologie
What I understood from The Ra Material is that “density” is a measurement of the overall complexity of some structure, form or entity, in a temporal, rather than spatial, sense. To use Ra terms, the density of an object is the “size of the time/space” it occupies, whereas the volume is the “size of the space/time” it occupies.
The discrete domains of light that Ra refers to are misleading, because “light” is a bit more complex on the higher densities than it is here on the third, the one we are all very familiar with. A third-density photon is not the same thing as a sixth-density photon. There is more of a change than just “frequency”. 1 Bruce Peret, letter dated March 20, 2000
About higher densities:
The very word, density, is misleading, for it would somehow suggest that each succeeding density is more pallid or frail. The opposite, however, is true in that in each density further than the last there is a higher density of light. 3 Q’uo, transcript dated April 13, 1997, p. 2.
Your “densities” are basically groupings of levels of complexity. First density is the simplest form, inanimate matter, “body”. When “mind” joins “body” into a body/mind complex, second density is reached, and we see it as simple life forms, plants. When “spirit” gets in the act, we have our existence, the mind/body/spirit complex: third density (three connected components), the animal kingdom and a very complex entity. This is the way evolution increases complexity. And “density” is a measurement of complexity. To put it simply, the more “ingredients” in the soup of dimensions interacting to form an entity, the more complex the recipe is, and thus the higher its “density”. And Ra has a pretty simple kitchen, only seven major ingredients: the seven dimensions forming the first through seventh densities. 4 Bruce Peret, letter dated March 20, 2000.
So our third-density light has three aspects or dimensions within its photon, which Bruce calls body light, mind light and spirit light, and which I would call beingness light, consciousness light and self-awareness light. In each succeeding density, the light contains the characteristics from earlier densities, but places them within the new photon’s dimensional signature. The fourth-density addition, then, would be love light, the fifth ingredient, understanding light, the sixth density, unity light, and the seventh density would add completion light or the gateway to intelligent infinity light. But for short, they are all light, the basic building block of each density being the photon of that density.
There are seven densities in our creation, divided, as are our energy centers, by descriptive terms using the rainbow of colors, red through violet. First density is red, second density orange, third density yellow, fourth density green, fifth density blue, sixth density indigo and seventh density violet. Our planet is activated in red, orange and yellow densities at this time, as we are a third-density planet, although within this third density, we have in each of our bodies all seven energy centers, corresponding to the whole range of inner and outer planes of creation.
Ra: You must see the Earth, as you call it, as being seven Earths. There is red, orange, yellow, and there will soon be a completed green color vibratory locus for fourth-density entities which they will call Earth. During the fourth-density experience, due to the lack of development of fourth-density entities, the third-density planetary sphere is not useful for habitation since the early fourth-density entity will not know precisely how to maintain the illusion that fourth density cannot be seen or determined from any instrumentation available to any third density. Thus in fourth density the red, orange and green energy nexi of your planet will be activated while the yellow is in potentiation along with the blue and the indigo. 7 Law of One, Book III, p. 86.
The third density, which we together enjoy at this time, is the first density of self-aware entities, and its denizens begin to seek the lessons of love by making the initial choice as to their path or style of seeking and realizing that love. The fourth density is the density of love or understanding and its citizens seek to perfect this knowledge, and begin the lessons of wisdom. The fifth density is the wisdom density, and its denizens complete the study of wisdom. The sixth density is the density of unification, wherein the balance of love and wisdom is sought and found. In this density, the split of positive and negative paths which begin with the choice in third density is again unified, as negative sixth density entities realize they can go no further until they fully accept that all entities are one in the Creator, and switch their polarity in one fell swoop.
The seventh density is the density of foreverness. Here, self-aware entities complete all lessons of all kinds and eventually are drawn by spiritual gravity back into the unpotentiated Creator, the density then moving into the timelessness in which first density began.
Each density has its purpose. Now, we would preface this line of thinking by pointing out that the seeming progression of densities is an artifact of time and space and is not the deepest truth of the cosmos and its makeup. In a deeper reality, or shall we say, a more shallow illusion, all time and space is one and as an entity, therefore, each seeker is working simultaneously upon all densities and sub-densities. However, within incarnation there is time, there is space and there is progression. Therefore, we use the concept of densities to indicate which lessons are learned first, which lessons are the foundation for further lessons. In first density the lesson is simply consciousness. In second density the lesson involves the turning to the light, the beginning of choices. In third density which you now enjoy the lesson is in learning how to love and how to accept love. These lessons are two sides of the one coin of love. You have entered into this incarnative experience because you felt that there was room for improvement in your understanding of love. Now there are other reasons which cause you to wish to come at this time having to do with service to this planet and its peoples in this time of transformation on a planetary scale. But each also has lessons to learn, and so we would focus upon the core beingness of the self as it can in a stable manner be experienced helpfully within incarnation.
8 Q’uo, transcript dated October 29, 1995, pp. 1-2.
It is interesting to see the densities as an artifact of space/time, or physical reality. Supposedly, there are further octaves of experience after this present creation, each containing these seven densities, but at a higher octave of vibration.
I understand that the process going on here does not end here. Our evolution is a process that is endless.
9 Ed Weigel, letter dated November 27, 1996.
This entire vibratory nexus which you call third density is that in which you make the foundation choice which each of you has already made to be of service to others and to live a life in faith. Your basic contribution is living the life in faith; not in being happy or melancholy or useful or productive, but in being a certain kind of entity, an entity that is able to shine through the windows of the eyes and the smile upon the lips with the light of the one infinite Creator. 19 Q’uo, transcript dated May 28, 1989, p. 4.
3d = To know good and evil and then to die.
Your situation surrounds you and seemingly would be obvious to you. Yet it is carefully structured, that is, the illusion is carefully structured so that you do not catch on to the depth of illusion. We praise this illusion in which you struggle, even though the struggle is not necessary in terms of sheer metaphysics. Within third density, each of you came to struggle, came to be confused and befuddled, came to develop fears, to do all the wrong things, to clutch and grasp at everything from money to ideas, feeling needy. And why? Because it is in working with these honest feelings that the entity within you, the spirit, the consciousness, may float about the being with all these concerns and may interact with it in such a way that consciousness is transferred into the working brain, the working mind. 21 idem, transcript dated September 12, 1993, pp. 5-6.
There is no emotion involved in moving from density to density by graduation. There is simply the ability to enjoy light. As entities reach the light at which they feel most comfortable they simply stop. If it happens to be in the fourth density then that is the future for that entity. If that entity stops on the third-density side of this division of quanta we call density, then that entity shall enjoy more of the third-density light, and work for another period upon those lessons of love and polarity which he came to ponder. There is no particular reward for moving onward any more than there is a reward for moving from a grade in school to the next highest grade. And yet there is tremendous emotion in the process of becoming that essence that does welcome light and that has chosen how to use, how to spend, how to offer or allow the increase of that light through radiation through the self.
27 idem, transcript dated April 13, 1997, p. 2.
By this process, we hope to enter fourth density after graduation. Earth shall continue as a fourth-density positive planet, its third density dying out naturally over a period of centuries. Until the third-density humankind is completely gone, fourth density will be invisible to third density, even though the planes interpenetrate each other.
Third Density: The Density of Choice
To reel our minds back from the great spread of densities of experience, we can concentrate on this present third-density experience, the one we are working on right now. Those of Q’uo say:
How we admire you. We remember third density. It is the shortest of the densities, the Density of Choice. You are here to choose to serve the Creator by serving others or by serving the self and manipulating others. As you serve others, you may be asked to do outrageous things, to go beyond your limitations, to do what cannot be done yet which shall be done because it must. And in those situations we strongly advise that you release your personal personality and move to an impersonal portion of your deep self, that god-self of unmitigated and straightforward compassion. To determine what is pleasing as opposed to what is serving another entity is sometimes difficult, especially on the spur of the moment. Therefore, we ask you to steep yourselves as you would immolate a tea bag in the teacup in the love and the light of the infinite One, that what needs be done for you to polarize, for you to choose, may be done with what this instrument would call “gladness and singleness of heart”.
38 idem, transcript dated June 18, 1989, p. 10. “Gladness and singleness of heart” is from the Holy Eucharist Services in the Episcopal Book Of Common Prayer.
Each choice, no matter what the subject, is an exercise of will, freely made. As the mind is configured by its very nature of being, and as it gathers the experiences of your illusion, it becomes biased either in the service-to-self sense or in the service-to-others sense.
39 Latwii, transcript dated October 3, 1982, p. 17.
Third density is not the place from which to take off into the ethers. Rather, it is the place to refine your basic choice of paths: service to self, or service to others. This seems a simple and basic choice, one easily taken and out of the way, clearing the way for important work. Yet, this is the chief work of your incarnation, the purification of that choice for the light. Into that light you will take your entire universal, as this instrument likes to say, 360-degree self. You shall not be judged on the contents of your heart, for all have light and dark within. You shall be judged by the self on your capacity to accept an increase of light. Those who truly think of others first are automatically increasing their ability to withstand the more dense light of the next density. Therefore, wanderers, just like those native to this third density need to see the chief importance of making, and remaking, and remaking, this choice. It is not made once for all. It is made again and again and again. Temptation to shut down that open heart, to go away from the light, comes every day you dwell within your illusion, so that you can go through this process of refinement which has many temptations and tests. 41 idem, transcript dated May 12, 1996, pp. 4-5.
Identify our unique gifts, then, and look for ways to share them. Sometimes, it may seem that there is no place that will appreciate our gifts; that this world is very negative. Don thought so:
Questioner: Can you tell me why you say that the Earth will be fourth density positive instead of fourth density negative since there seems to be much negativity here now?
Ra: I am Ra. The Earth seems to be negative. That is due to the quiet, shall we say, horror which is the common distortion which those good or positively oriented entities have towards the occurrences which are of your time/space present. However, those oriented and harvestable in the ways of service to others greatly outnumber those whose orientation towards service to self has become that of harvestable quality. 45 Law Of One, Book I, p. 166.
There is nothing to fear. You are free and in the third-density illusion. You can be of the greatest assistance to each other that you shall ever be to anyone. We cannot possibly emphasize enough the height, the breadth and the depth of the possibilities for service in your earthen vessel overbody, for yours is the Density of Choice. You shall choose your priority or have already chosen, and as you serve, you are aiding the one whom you serve to choose his or her polarity or to increase it. 50 L/Leema, transcript dated June 2, 1985, p. 8.
I think most of us are pretty sure which polarity we want to be, rather than know for sure which polarity we have been up until this point. Up until the moment of decision we are one of those wandering around in confusion and ignorance. We are neither here nor there. When we make the choice, “This is what I want to be”, then I believe strongly that is what we will be. The choice is what will determine all our future actions since we have stated firmly, sincerely, and categorically that is what we desire. The universe will aid and assist us to achieve this goal if we are sincere and make this known to ourselves and our higher self. We can’t do it ourselves! We have our egos to battle and our egos are very clever. The ego tells us we are separate from ALL in order to preserve itself. The only thing we need to do is to make the choice, and then to ask for help, keeping in mind that what you see manifesting unpleasantly in others is only ego and not the truth. When you are judging yourself as being unworthy then you are playing to the ego. The ego needs these doubts and fears to exist. The ego is not who you are and it is not who others are. See it for the illusion it is and see what is under the illusion. Then don’t worry. Unconditional love is not developed overnight. Treat others as if they were worthy of your love, even if you can’t give it. One day you will be able to. 52 Lynn B., letter dated October 1, 1998.
One last suggestion: look for the love. Act as its hands, voice and ambassador.
The decision that you may make which will profoundly affect the many choices that you make is the decision to seek love; not any kind of love, not any description of love; to seek love. To seek love is to seek one of the primal distortions from the infinite Creator. To seek love is to seek the great intelligence that fills the energetic consciousness of the universe with purpose. 57 Latwii, transcript dated June 5, 1983, p. 3
We may also seek this great intelligence in others. All we meet are mirrors that reflect the love and light of the infinite Creator. All are our “angels unawares”. Sometimes we are bemused and blinded by our own reflections, but occasionally we meet someone who is transparent to the Creator for us, and there, love’s face shines in human form.
