This is the second in a series of articles about The Law of One, as given through L/L Research in the early 1980s. In this article we discuss the Ra group and its interaction with us. I am telling their story to you as they told it to our research group. It sounds amazing. Keep an open mind and give it a listen anyway! The philosophical information they offer is sound. Their story may be true as well.

Ra is a planetary population from Venus of about 30,000,000 souls. In their terms, they are a positive sixth-density social memory complex; a service-to-others polarized group of people who have decided to seek and serve as one.

They came up through the densities to density six, the Density of Unity, on or within the influence of Venus. Their third density was quick and easy – they all graduated after one major cycle. Their fourth-density time went quickly and smoothly also. They took a lot longer to work their way through fifth density – the Density of Wisdom – because they were so overbalanced into unconditional love. But they made fifth-density graduation at last and entered sixth density, the Density of Unity.

In the middle of their sixth density they heard Planet Earth’s cries for spiritual help in Egypt and decided to respond. It was the fourteenth century BCE, the time of the New Kingdom of the Pharaohs; the time of Akhenaton and the building of the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Ra went to the Council of Saturn, the governing body for the Confederation of Angels and Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator in this section of the Milky Way Galaxy. In Session Six, Ra describes this Council.

“I am one of the members of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. There are approximately fifty-three civilizations, comprising approximately five hundred planetary consciousness complexes in this Confederation. This Confederation contains those from your own planet who have attained dimensions beyond your third. It contains planetary entities within your solar system, and it contains planetary entities from other galaxies. It is a true Confederation in that its members are not alike, but allied in service according to the Law of One.”

They asked permission from the Council to interact with the Egyptians. The Council agreed. So, traveling not in ships but by thought, they came to Earth, to appear to the Egyptians in physical form.

At the time of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt, there had been one minor cycle of 25,000 years on Planet Earth, with no Harvest. The bold, new experiment of Earth was going badly awry. A Guardian of Earth, Yahweh, had brought the planetary population of Mars here after that planet’s atmosphere’s demise, making some genetic changes to give these souls quicker, more agile physical bodies and an enhanced intellect so that they might more easily learn the Law of One. Yet those previously of Mars used those bodies and minds not to seek spiritual evolution but to recapitulate the experience of empire they had on Mars, which had ended disastrously when they rendered their planet uninhabitable for third-density people. Now Planet Earth was also mired in empire.

However, Pharaoh Akhenaton was oriented towards an advanced spirituality, as was his wife, Nefertiti. Akhenaton became known as the heretic pharaoh because of his interaction with those of Ra. Under the influence of the Law of One, Akhenaton declared the state religion to be monotheistic, the first nation-state ever to do so on Planet Earth. He built a new capital of Egypt, Heliopolis, and here he and Nefertiti practiced their new religion, worshiping one god.

The Ra group, in Session 1 of The Law of One, put it this way:

“We spoke to one who heard and understood and was in a position to decree the Law of One. However, the priests and peoples of that era quickly distorted our message, robbing it of the, shall we say, compassion with which unity is informed by its very nature. Since it contains all, it cannot abhor any.

“When we were no longer able to have appropriate channels through which to enunciate the Law of One, we removed ourselves from the now hypocritical position in which we had allowed ourselves to be placed. Other myths, shall we say, having more to do with polarity and the things of your vibration that are complex, again took over in that particular society/complex.”

When Don, in this first session with those of Ra, asked for more details, Ra replied,

“In the Eighteenth Dynasty, as it is known in your records of space/time distortions, we were able to contact a pharaoh, as you would call him. The man was small in life-experience on your plane and was a … what this instrument would call, Wanderer. Thus, this mind/body/spirit complex received our communication distortions and was able to blend his distortions with our own.

“This young entity had been given a vibratory complex of sound which vibrated in honor of a prosperous god, as this mind/body complex, which we call instrument for convenience, would call “Ammon.” The entity decided that this name, being in honor of one among many gods, was not acceptable for inclusion in his vibratory sound complex. Thus, he changed his name to one which honored the sun disc. This distortion, called “Aten,” was a close distortion to our reality, as we understand our own nature of mind/body/spirit complex distortion. However, it does not come totally into alignment with the intended teach/learning which was sent. This entity, Akhenaton, became convinced that the vibration of One was the true spiritual vibration and thus decreed the Law of One.

“However, this entity’s beliefs were accepted by very few. His priests gave lip service only, without the spiritual distortion towards seeking. The peoples continued in their beliefs. When this entity was no longer in this density, again the polarized beliefs in the many gods came into their own and continued so until the one known as Mohammed delivered the peoples into a more intelligible distortion of mind/body/spirit relationships.”

In addition to communicating the Law of One to Akhenaton, the Ra group came among the Egyptians of that time to build the Great Pyramid of Giza. It was intended as an initiatory place for priests of the Law of One, and as a healing center. This foray into monotheism did not survive Akhenaton for long. Soon after his death, the priesthood became corrupt and political rather than religious, and the Egyptian pharaohs returned to the worship of many gods. Ra said, in Session 2,

“The larger pyramids were built by our ability using the forces of One. The stones are alive. It has not been so understood by the mind/body/spirit distortions of your culture. The purposes of the pyramids were two:

“Firstly, to have a properly oriented place of initiation for those who wished to become purified or initiated channels for the Law of One.

“Two, we wished then to carefully guide the initiates in developing a healing of the people whom they sought to aid, and of the planet itself. Pyramid after pyramid charged by the crystal and Initiate were designed to balance the incoming energy of the One Creation with the many and multiple distortions of the planetary mind/body/spirit. In this effort we were able to continue work that brothers within the Confederation had effected through building of other crystal-bearing structures and thus complete a ring, if you will, of these about the Earth’s, as this instrument would have us vibrate it, surface.”

Another of the Ra group’s gifts to Earth from this Egyptian era was the Tarot. They had used the twenty-two images of the “court cards” of the Tarot on Venus during their third density as a means of studying the archetypal mind, and they thought it would help the initiates on Earth as well. In Session 76, they explained,

“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.”

Their mission to Egypt was a failure. Moreover, it had left the Egyptians with what the Ra group called an increase in distortion. They decided to try to decrease distortion by communicating with those of Earth through a channel, without being physically present, as they had been with Akhenaton. In Session 6, Ra says,

“We have walked among your people. We remember. We remember sorrow: have seen much. We have searched for an instrument of the proper parameters of distortion in mind/body/spirit complex and supporting and understanding of mind/body/spirit complexes to accept this information with minimal distortion and maximal desire to serve for some of your years.”

I love the Ra group’s tendency towards understatement. They found Don Elkins, Jim McCarty and me after a search of only three millennia or so. Of course to Ra, this is a very short time, since they have very long incarnations.

On January 15, 1981, we first met the Ra group. I was the channel for L/L Research. During that first session, Don decided that this contact was the one he had been hoping to find all of his life, and asked the Ra’s permission to publish their continuing conversation in a book so that he might disseminate this information. They agreed, but encouraged us not to be attached to an outcome. If most people liked the material, fine! But if only a few found it to be a good resource, that was all right as well. As they put it,

“We are speaking to you and accepting both our distortions and your own in order to enunciate the laws of creation, more especially the Law of One. We are not available to many of your peoples, for this is not an easily understood way of communication or type of philosophy. However, our very being is hopefully a poignant example of both the necessity and the near-hopelessness of attempting to teach.

“Each of those in this group is striving to use, digest, and diversify the information which we are sending this instrument into the channels of the mind/body/spirit complex without distortion. The few whom you will illuminate by sharing your light are far more than enough reason for the greatest possible effort. To serve one is to serve all.”

When Don was working on the concept of putting the sessions we were gathering into a book, he asked the Ra group for permission to give their name as author. Ra replied,

“If your discernment/understanding suggests the use of this vibratory sound complex, Ra, the phrase “An humble messenger of the Law of One” [will] be appended.”

I am enormously grateful to these humble messengers of the Law of One for their compassion for humanity on Planet Earth, for the enormous wisdom of their message and for their nurturance of me during the contact. At one point, they said to our group,

“In our memory, we thank you.”

In our memory, dear Ra, we thank you right back!

I open my arms and embrace your spirit! Give thanks with me for one of the great difference-makers of the twentieth century – those Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow who call themselves Ra.
