[The recording failed at the beginning of the talk for a few minutes. It picks up as I conclude talking about how the Mayans saw the winter solstice of 2012.]

In the beginning of the Sixth Sun there is a period of chaos of thirty-some years, depending on whom you read, more or less, between the setting of the Fifth Sun and the rising of the Sixth Sun.

I believe we are seeing that chaos.

I am not here to tell you who is right [among Mayan scholars], because there are all kinds of disagreements between the scholars that try to read the Mayan calendar.

The readings that we chose were from John Major Jenkins 1 and I have to admit it’s a partisan thing. We know John Major Jenkins. I have appeared in two or three Time of Global Shift conferences with him and he likes us, and thinks that we do good work. So we think he does good work too!


Others are undoubtedly equally worthy but we gave you Mr. Jenkins in the handout that you got.

For those of you on the radio, if you go to www.llresearch.org, click on Library, then Carla’s Niche, and then click on Speeches and you’ll find Homecoming 2010. Click on that, you will find our handout and you can enjoy the same readings that these wonderful people in this circle today, in this beautiful, sunlit day in Kentucky, are going to enjoy if they decide to read it. They may not—some people are not readers.

I would like to thank the Lord for the weather because it has been very hot here this summer, the hottest summer in the state since 1936. But yesterday, today and tomorrow, the days of the Homecoming, a front came through and it is absolutely idyllic. Thank you, Lord.


This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius Age of Aquarius! Aquarius! Aquarius! Harmony and understanding, Sympathy and trust abounding, No more falsehoods or derisions, Golden living dreams of visions, Mystic crystal revelation, And the mind’s true liberation Aquarius! Aquarius!

This is the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, at the Winter Solstice of 2012. Western astrology is very specific about this, it turns over just like a clock on the Winter Solstice and we go from the Age of Pisces, which can probably be looked at as a movement from darkness to Zoroastrianism or the theory of light overcoming darkness, to the Christianity of Jesus where nothing is overcome and everything is loved until it falls into line.


Now I am not an astrologer. It has never appealed to me. So what I’m going to say, I’ve got to read:

The Sun is at zero degrees Capricorn on the Winter Solstice. The most important configuration is a Yod, also called the Finger of God.

Now Yod is interesting because Yod [is part of] Yahweh, the name of Jehovah, and it’s a sacred syllable.

It looks like an arrow in the chart and it indicates change and transformations. The yod consists of a five-point connection between Jupiter and Pluto and another five-point connection between Jupiter and Saturn. There is also a central opposition made between Jupiter and the Mercury/Venus conjunction. The quincunx between Jupiter and Pluto is exact at December 21, 2012. It looks like an arrow in the chart and it indicates change and transformation.

The Yod consists of a 5 point connection between Jupiter and Pluto, and another 5 point connection between Jupiter and Saturn. There is also a central opposition made between Jupiter and the Mercury—Venus conjunction. The quincunx between Jupiter and Pluto is exact at December 21st 2012.


Once to every man and nation comes a moment to decide. In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;

Some great cause, some great decision, offering each the bloom or blight And the choice goes by forever, ’twixt that darkness and that light.

Now I’m stretching a little bit to get Christian dogma in here, but then so is Christian dogma. There have to be two dozen sites that I looked at on Google search engines in which various theologists and other players in the game of 2012 have devised complex Bible Codes and quoted Nostradamus and all kinds of things, to work it out that this is the time of Rapture, this is the time of, “Two men will be in a field, one will be taken …” and the other one presumably goes down into the dust of hell.

It’s exciting for people to contemplate not just their death, but also the deaths of everybody. People love that thought of the Twilight of the Gods and the Gotterdammerung. It’s a very common theme throughout art and history and I think that it actually is psychologically based on our fear of dying, and our awareness that, “That’s a bummer! So, hey, if I’m going, everybody is going to go!” And so it just gets projected out to the world scene. And every generation has its prophets that cry doom. But there are more than the usual number of prophets crying doom as of 12/21/12.


Twilight is stealing over the sea, Shadows are falling dark on the lea. Borne on the night winds, voices of yore Come from the far off shore.

Far away beyond the starlit skies Where the love-light never, never dies Gleameth a mansion filled with delight, Sweet, happy home so bright.

I use this little hymn, sad although it’s so beautiful, to introduce you to … all right, call me crazy, I like Terrence McKenna’s Novelty Theory. He got hold of the data, 12/21/2012, and I guess he must have known enough about astrology to realize that this never has happened in the history of this world. It’s like everything from the central Sun to our Sun to our planet lines up!

[It] never happened before. Who knows when it will happen again? I guess some statistician will have to figure out how many billions of years [will pass] before the planets and suns and everything in this whole galaxy line up like that.

So, possibly under the influence of the LSD he that had dropped, it could be, he decided that he was going to create a novelty theory—this had been in the back of his mind but he never had a chance just to go for it [until] he found out how unusual this was. He said that the rarer an event or occurrence is, the more turmoil and transformation will happen then. And since this is the rarest event in the history of the world, he posited that it would be the end of the world.

I thought that was really sharp of him whether or not he was assisted by substances, and so I included this for you because it just stretches to the limit the ability of humans on Earth to posit weird and wonderful things that somehow come out making a weird kind of sense … which I think he does.


So do Thou my Lord though in dying never apart So do Thou my Lord though in dying never apart Wave of the sea, dissolve in the sea Wave of the sea, dissolve in the sea I am the bubble make me the sea I am the bubble make me the sea

That song brings me to Edgar Cayce. Now Cayce didn’t say anything about 2012, he said something about 1998—well, you know, close enough right? He was talking [about a time] quite a bit earlier in the twentieth century. The only reason we have this theory is because somebody paid him to ask questions that weren’t about healing. He [Cayce] was a man with children and responsibilities and he needed money for his readings because they took his energy and time every day all day—his whole life almost. So he had to have income, and he only read for people who paid him. But bless certain people’s hearts, they paid him for “world readings” and that’s how we got this information from Cayce.

Cayce felt that humans would evolve in time into beings with supernatural powers. He described a new era of enlightenment and peace, when the energy within humans would be manifested on the Earth. But before this Kingdom of God would rule the world, Cayce foresaw world events that can only be described as apocalyptic. He saw a period of purification necessary involving natural disasters that would dramatically alter the face of the Earth.

He called for this to happen in 1998. Interestingly enough, Don [Elkins] asked about this, being a scientist, being aware also as a researcher of the paranormal that Cayce had said this. He was especially aware of it through a book called We Are the Earthquake Generation 2 which I recommend to you. It’s the only book of its kind and may be out of print by now.

The answer that the Ra group gave to Don was that it was possible that this could be averted. Mind you that Don was talking to Ra in 1981, 82, 83 and a little bit in 84—so it hadn’t happened yet and everybody was very nervous about Cayce’s predictions. They (Ra group) said well, it might not have to happen if things change in the thinking on Earth, we can’t go into the future and predict because things happen the way they happen and your free will determines how they all happen. However, he (Cayce) did see that there was not only be the natural disasters, there would be all kinds of wars, there would be economic collapse and socio-political unrest. Certainly he is describing the world that we see with our physical eyes.

Cayce felt, as with Ra, that this could be averted if humanity changed its behavior and this is the purpose for giving prophecies—to warn people to change so that prophecies won’t happen.

Now I’ve done very little prophesying. Don and I, when I first started channeling tried, just once, to do a prophetic reading—and whoever it was I had on the horn, I think it was Hatonn, was asked, “What natural disasters will occur within the next 12 months?”

I was given not words, but one of those projections of the world that was flat, a Mercator map projection with little points on it. I described where they were. My geography was pretty weak but I had the map, so I could describe what was next to [the little points]—you know, where the water was.

We got it out a year later and [the predictions] were all right. They were all accurate. However, I felt, after doing the session, that we should never do a session like that again. I could not hold my tuning. It just didn’t feel right so we never did that again.

So while it’s possible to get information like that, I don’t think it’s wise. I don’t think it’s at all wise, because of the fact that we do have a large part in creating what happens. What we think about, we magnetize to us. So it doesn’t do any good to think about these things.

Now if a disaster has happened, it certainly does us all a great deal of good to empathize with the people that are having such a hard time. And you see heroes and heroines emerging from the mists every time there is a disaster. Look at all the people that were trying to help with Katrina. Look at all the people that were trying to help Haiti. It’s fine to respond to need, but to worry about it ahead of time, I’ve just come to feel, is unwise in the extreme. So don’t ask me what disasters are going to happen in the next year, I won’t channel on it.

I think there are links between the Cayce material and those of Ra in that there was a priest at the time of Ra that was probably an incarnation in the same soul-stream of which Cayce was a part, and he witnessed a great deal of how the Great Pyramid of Giza was built—so that is to be noted.


Surely the presence of The One is in this place. I can feel His mighty power and His grace. I can hear the brush of angel’s wings, See joy on every face. Surely the presence of The One is in this place.

For those on the radio, what you’re hearing in the background is a train, and there’s nothing to do about that but move on!

I next take up what the Ra group said about 2012. Actually, they talked much more vaguely than that. They said, 30 years from now or so—in 1981 so that would be 2011—but they were talking about the end of the cycle. And I think it’s helpful to read what they had to say so that I can share with you the precise understanding that Ra gives so carefully.

Don says to those of Ra, “I assume that as the cycle ends and inconveniences occur there will be some entities who start seeking or be catalyzed into seeking because of the trauma and will then hear your words telepathically or in written form such as this book. Is this correct?”

Ra says, “You are correct except in understanding the inconveniences have begun.”

Certainly they will continue …

[Another train-whistle noise is in the background.] 3

There must be one train going this way, and one train going the opposite way because they only have to whistle once.


It’s against the law, actually for them to [whistle] more [than once].

Hello to all those that are bound for the East coast and those that are bound for the West coast. I suppose I’m talking mostly about hobos, as they are probably freight trains.


In session 40, Don asks those of Ra: “What will be the time of transition on this planet from third to fourth density?”

Ra says, “This is difficult to estimate due to the uncharacteristic anomalies of this transition. There are at this space/time nexus beings incarnate which have begun fourth-density work. However, the third-density climate of planetary consciousness is retarding the process. At this particular nexus, the possibility/probability vortices indicate somewhere between 100 and 700 of your years as a transition period. This cannot be accurate due to the volatility of your people at this space/time.”

And in session 14, Ra simply says, “The harvest is now.”

Don asks in session 17, “If the harvest is to occur in the year 2011 or will it be spread out?”

And Ra says, “This is an approximation. We have stated we have difficulty with your time/space. This is an appropriate probable/possible time/space nexus for harvest. Those who are not in incarnation at this time will be included in the harvest.”

I’ll talk more about that later in these talks.


People get ready, There’s a train a comin’. You don’t need no ticket, you just get on board. All you need is faith To hear the diesel comin’. Don’t need no ticket. You just thank the Lord.

Basically for Q’uo that’s the story. The train’s coming! Get on board and thank the Lord. Everything’s okay, there’s no need to fear.

In a session [recorded] February 13, 2010, Q’uo says, “Third-density Earth is nested within fourth-density Earth. It is not the same Earth as fourth-density Earth. Third-density Earth will not become fourth-density Earth, any more than first-density Earth became second-density Earth, or second-density Earth became third-density Earth. These densities are nested in such a way as to occupy the same area or influence within time/space and space/time held lovingly by the overarching energy field of your Sun.”

This is an important point. The densities nest. We don’t stand here on this very ground and then at the Winter Solstice it turns into fourth-density Earth. It continues being third-density Earth. The fourth-density Earth is of a far more dense nature, denser with light; denser with information, and it nests within the third density, which nests within second [density], which nests within first [density]. All of the densities nest together, sort of like those Russian dolls that, [when] you open the biggest doll, there’s a smaller one, then a smaller one, and a smaller one. But I don’t think it’s [exactly] like that. I think the densities interpenetrate.

As anybody knows that has done high school science, there is mostly space in the universe. One electron of an atom is displaced from the nucleus as though you were standing in the middle of a football field and looking up at one of those huge superdomes from the very last 110,000th seat.

That’s the first electron of one atom. That’s how much space there is. So it’s very easy to see how everything can interpenetrate.

All of our concepts about large and small and so forth really have no meaning. It’s “as above, so below”. So whatever level of size that you want to think about, there’s something immensely larger, something immensely smaller, but it’s all part of one interactive universe.

So Q’uo says “Third-density Earth is an Earth whose light is waning. Third density is shortly to become inactive, we would say within 300 or 400 of your years beyond 2012.”

They probably had a better view of it because it’s closer, so their probability/possibility vortices can be more accurate. So apparently within the next 300 or 400 years those who want to come back to third density because of adhering karma will have done so.

Now the adhering karma comes from so many of those upon our planet’s being from other third-density planets whose surfaces were made uninhabitable by third-density people. The Ra group says there are sixteen civilizations that have moved here. We know some of them. We know Deneb, we know Mars, we know Maldek, because Don asked about them. We also know that Atlantis was destroyed, so there are lots of people from Atlantis, on our very planet, that have adhering karma having to do with the destruction of a continent.

And a lot of these people, even now, are coming back as third-density/fourth-density wired people. They will be able to withstand the truth of fourth-density light which is, at this point, interpenetrating third-density light almost completely. [It] carries a lot more truth than third-density light can.

And if you feel like you’ve been getting hit upside the head by your catalyst lately, and you’ve had to look at things you never wanted to look at in this life, and you don’t want to think it’s part of yourself, the reason is that you’re dealing with this light of truth and understanding that is of fourth density. And it’s difficult. It’s difficult to say, “Okay, I see the robber I am, the killer I am, the adulterer. Even if it’s only in my heart, I can see that in myself and I will accept it and redeem it.”

That’s the way you’re working with it, hopefully, because that’s the only way in which you’ll be able to love yourself and accept yourself, which Ra said is two of the three steps to becoming the Creator. The third one is just becoming the Creator.


We recently had a session where Gary 4 asked the question: “I understand loving myself, I understand accepting myself. Could you talk about becoming the Creator? That’s a little hazy for me.” And we had a pretty good session on that which you’re welcome to look up.

We have a site search where you can get onto the www.llresearch.org site. Just type in a key word and if it’s somewhere on our site, it will show up. It looks just like the Google search.

Now, the second point here, besides the fact that the densities nest and we don’t have to make this into a fourth-density planet, is that we are ready. This instant, this heartbeat, we are ready if we let [the Creator’s] love shine through us.

I love to think about stained glass windows in this regard. Stained glass windows in a church all distort the light. You don’t see the sunlight coming through; you see red light and blue light and all kinds of light. But isn’t it beautiful? And I think real light stains glass windows.

If we can get transparent enough to let the light shine through us, we will color that light with our personalities, our egos, our characters, our thinking—but what a beautiful, beautiful light. I love to think of all of us in this circle just beaming the love and the light of the infinite Creator through our eyes and just together making this beautiful bouquet of colors that all express the love and the light of the One.

Third point: The planet itself will shift all at once at 12/21/2012. The active density then will be fourth density and those of us who are left will be those who have made our choices—or not—but who are just sort of left over. This is all of our last incarnations on this planet. If we graduate in a positive sense, we’ll go on to fourth-density Earth. If we graduate in the negative sense, there will be another planet. And if we graduate not at all and discover we are more comfortable staying in third density because we haven’t made our choices yet, we’ll go to another planet as well.

There is no concept of heaven or hell to those of Ra, or anybody in the Confederation to whom I’ve talked. There’s only the consideration of where are you more comfortable, where are you learning your lessons. And that’s where you belong.

As I said before, some Wanderers—the third generation of Wanderers—are already coming back to heal the planet, the crystal kids or the indigo children, as they’re often called, didn’t really come back as Wanderers. When they’ve had their opportunity—okay, I’ve graduated, I’m in fourth density and this is so cool! I’ve got so many choices now! But what do I want to do?“

So then [the newly graduated souls] think, “I really loved Earth you know, and I’d like to go back and help to heal what we did so badly with messing up. I’d like to help to heal the water. I’d like help heal the air. I’d like to help heal the Earth.

And so we see a little school kid in Canada at the age of 7 deciding that the people in Africa need more wells. And by the time he’s 8 years old, he’s started a foundation. There are kids like this all over that are the hope of the world, along, I think with the mothers more than the fathers.

Pete Seeger said, in a wonderful interview that Amy Goodman did with him, “It’s the women and the children that will save us.” But, gentlemen, you can awaken your feminine side and join them!

Now I would like to explain a concept that’s very important to the understanding of harvest, and that’s called the steps of light. It’s a wonderful conception because, as I said, there is no judgment. The concept is this: that when you have died, you move out of your body into the indigo-ray body which you used to enter your physical body. You just ride out on the horse on which you rode in.

But then, after you’ve been healed in your indigo-ray body, you move into your violet-ray body for walking the steps of light. Now the violet ray [is] this one here.

[Carla points to her fingernail that has violet nail polish on it.]

Each step of light [contains] a carefully measured amount of the love and the light of the infinite Creator. Each step intensifies that love/light, and at some point which is not marked on the steps of light, you move from third-density to fourth-density light.

I believe that it is extremely merciful to consider that the manner of our choosing where we will go in our next incarnation is that we walk the steps of light until we’re uncomfortable with the strength of the sunshine, and we stop. We go back one and we say, “This is where I’m the most comfortable. This is the light I can really enjoy.”

And then they say, “You’re still in third density. So your next assignment is going to be Planet X or whatever.”

And I also see a lot of people that came here as Wanderers, keeping on the steps of light right back to their home density. Won’t that be wonderful?

So it’s really a grand concept and I share it with you with great delight.

Now I like Q’uo’s reading on my next big point, which is you have to make a choice. That’s the name of my latest book, 101 The Choice. 5 It’s an entry-level book, unlike The Ra Material itself, which is definitely not entry-level. It reads like German philosophy—very chewy.


[It is] very dense. And so I wrote 101 not to dumb it down, not at all. I didn’t miss a step I don’t think, I hit every lick. But I hit them [using] baby steps. That was Don’s theory of teaching: “maintain the baby step.”

So I recommend 101 to you if you’d like to have a first view of The Ra Material, if you find The Ra Material hard to read. I’m not going to say that everybody will have trouble with it because there are people that don’t even have more than a grade-school education that have written in to say how much they love that book. It speaks to some people. And [the Confederation entities] came for those people. If you’re one of the people to whom the concepts speak but you don’t have any luck with the language, read 101 first and it will lead you into The Ra Material.

Q’uo says [that] you’re not responsible for what you see coming in. Your area of responsibility is in how you respond. And isn’t that true for all of us? Some of us have lucky days, some of us have an unlucky day. But we always have choices. We can respond to our catalyst with love or with fear. “If you wish to polarize in service to others, start gazing at others with the realization that you are here to help them just as they are here to help you, says Q’uo.

Another point: we are not fixed as to when we are harvested. Now this is very controversial, and I respect many of the people that disagree with me. Nevertheless, I can’t help but share with you my opinion, which is that, like Y2K, the Winter Solstice of 2012 will come and go and everybody will say, “I wonder what all that fuss was about?”

Because I don’t think that it’s a physical event for us. I think it’s a metaphysical event. I think that our movement from third to fourth density will take place in time/space, in the inner worlds or the heaven worlds or however you want to describe them. Inner and outer [are] very deceptive [terms] but [they are] the common terms.

Q’uo says on November 21 of 2005:

We do not suggest for a moment that all of you shall die in one dramatic planetary cataclysm. Indeed, once 2012 has come and gone, we’re hoping that third density will have a considerable number of years, perhaps even centuries, in which those who choose to dwell in third density in their physical vehicles will see to the continuing restitution or healing of your planet.

Consequently, [here’s a] big point: lose all fear.

I wrote a series of five articles about 2012. One of the articles was all on death and fear, because it’s so hard for people not to fear death. Now I died when I was 13, and for about two minutes my heart wasn’t beating. I had an experience at that time that convinced me that I had lots of work to do and that I needed to come back. And I came back and here I am. And I never want to hear that voice-over again unless it says, “Servant, Well done!”

I don’t want to hear, “Well, we don’t usually do this but you really chose a heck of an incarnation and we’ll give you a choice. You can come back and have two incarnations and do one of your jobs in one your incarnations, and then come back to do your other job in the next one. Or you can go back and do both of your missions in one incarnation so it’s your choice.”

Of course I thought to myself, “Well let’s see, I’m almost through childhood and it’s been a heck of a run. I think I’m going to hold on with the incarnation I have and just carry on.”

The thought of the two childhoods to go through again …


“No thanks, I’m coming back.”

So I came back and all of a sudden there I was and everybody was looking down at me trying to get my heart started again. This was in 1956.

So I don’t fear death. As a matter of fact, death was wonderful. It was just so nice. It didn’t hurt any more. Everything was fine. I was going to meet all my friends in the temple over the hill. Who wouldn’t want to do that? So I don’t fear death in the slightest.

I’m not fond of dying. The process of dying is sometimes quite hard, and nobody really wants to hang out in a hospital bed or whatever—but these things also happen. But dying is actually a wonderful liberation from a body that has really had it—a physical vehicle I should say, because we’re always in a body, it’s just a question of whether we’re in our yellow-ray bodies, our indigo bodies or what.


Fear not, fear not, for behold, I bring you great tidings, great tidings, great tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.

This next quote is from Q’uo on November 21, 2005 and I love it. I’m going to read it to you.

You dwell in a time that is coming to an end. And yet in your body, in your mind and in your heart you carry the seeds of the future within you. As you live your life, breathe in and breathe out, you are planting seeds which shall be reaped by those that come after you. We ask you to plant the seeds of love and faith with a happy heart and a peaceful mind.

This is the hour in which you can choose another way.

In the face of fear, remember love.

In the face of anger, remember compassion.

In the face of disunity, remember union. For are you not part of everyone and everything that you meet?

In the face of seeming dearth, lack and limitation of resources we ask you to dwell, in thanksgiving and joy, upon the unlimited possibilities that dwell within your imagination.

So, lose all fear. Keep your energy bodies clear. Because fear stops harvestability cold. You can’t live in fear and be harvested. You have to be living in an open heart. You can’t be contracting. You need to be expanding.

It’s not that easy for us to do because we have so many things upon or minds. And this is why meditation and contemplation are so important. It’s also helpful to consider what fourth density is like and then choose to live that fourth-density paradigm.

The word “love” pretty much covers everything. Live and love. Let your eyes be eyes of love. See not to judge but to appreciate, to support, to understand and to accept—and let you start that with yourself and then move outward.

In a February 10, 2008 session, Q’uo says:

It is not that this new paradigm can be put into effect and a new fourth-density planet be created in third density. That is not what we are saying. What we’re saying is that in third density the focus, in terms of the purpose of third density, is upon each emerging self-aware spirit or soul becoming able to make the free-will choice between the polarity of service to others and the polarity of service to self through faith alone.


I am the circle and you are healing me I am the circle and you are healing me United people we are one. United people we are one.

That’s it for the first talk, I will see you again talking about unity, free will, love and light. Farewell dear BBS listeners and 2010 people. And for the 2010 people, we will reconvene after a bathroom break and have questions and answers.
