B. THE URANTIA BOOK
QUESTION: Who transmitted the Urantia Book?
RA: This was given by a series of discarnate entities of your own Earth planes, the so-called inner planes. This material is not passed by the Council. (B1, S14, 141)
C. HOW DOES REINCARNATION WORK?
RA: The illusion is created of light, or more properly but less understandably, light/love. This is in varying degrees of intensity. The spirit complex of an entity moves along the (spiraling) line of light until the light grows too glaring, at which time the entity stops. The entity may have barely reached 3rd density or may be very, very close to the ending of the 3rd density experience.
RA: Some incarnate automatically, that is without any conscious self-awareness of the process of spiritual evolution. They are under the Guardians, beings whom you may call angelic. (B2, S48, 121)
RA: When the entity becomes aware of the mechanism for spiritual evolution, it will arrange and place those entities and lessons necessary for maximum growth and expression of polarity in the incarnative experience before the forgetting occurs.
The only disadvantage of this is that some entities will attempt to learn to much during one incarnative experience that the intensity of the catalyst disarranges the entity and is not maximally used as intended. (B2, S48, 122)
D. HOW ARE REINCARNATIONS INTO THE PHYSICAL ALLOCATED?
RA: Entities wishing to obtain critically needed experience in order to become harvestable are incarnated with priority over those who will, without too much probable/possible doubt, need to re-experience this density. (B1, S17, 169)
E. CAN WE CHOOSE OUR PARENTS?
QUESTION: When incarnation ceases to be automatic, can an entity decide when he needs to incarnate for the benefit of his own learning. Does he select his parents? (B1, S21, 194)
RA: This is correct.
QUESTION: At this time what percentage of the entities incarnating are making their own choices?
RA: About 54%. (B1, S21, 194)
F. WE CAN GROW MORE IN 3RD DENSITY THAN IN BETWEEN INCARNATIONS.
RA: This is correct. (B1, S10, 113)
G. MORE PERSONAL HELP IS AVAILABLE PROM THE INNER PLANES
Jim McCarty: “The personal guides and teachers of the inner planes of our planet have much more leeway in offering personal information. Go to them for readings on your health and otter specific issues. Go to outer sources with questions that transcend space and time. If it will matter less in 10,000 years than it does now, it is probably not a universal question." (B5, 30)
VII. A PHYSICAL VEHICLE IS NECESSARY FOR GROWTH IN EACH DENSITY - EXCEPT THE 8TH
QUESTION: Was the physical body a device designed to accelerate the evolution of the mind?
RA: It is perhaps more accurate to note that the yellow-ray physical vehicle is a necessity without which the mind/body/spirit complex cannot pursue evolution at any pace. The mind/body/spirit complex has an existence independent of any physical vehicle.
However, in order to evolve, change, learn and manifest the Creator, the physical vehicles appropriate to each density are necessary. Your question implied that physical vehicles accelerated growth. The more accurate description is that they permit growth. (B5, S105, 183)
VIII. THE 4TH DENSITY FOR THOSE OF POSITIVE ORIENTATION
A. WHAT DETERMINES WHETHER YOU GRADUATE INTO 4TH DENSITY?
RA: The necessity for graduation to 4th density is an ability to use, welcome and enjoy a certain intensity of the white light of the One Infinite Creator. (B4, S82, 71)
RA: It's a function of the intensity of the violet ray of the individual. (B2, S43, 103)
B. WHAT IS THE 4TH DENSITY LIKE?
RA: There are no appropriate words. We can only say what it is not and approximate what it is. Beyond 4th density our ability to describe the density grows more limited until we become without words. (B4, S82, 71)
1. It uses a type of bipedal body which is much denser in consciousness and more full of life. It does not use your heavy chemical vehicles or body. (B1, S16, 157)
2. 4th density is not of words, unless chosen. One is aware of the thoughts and vibrations of otherselves.
3. It is a plane of compassion and understanding of the sorrows of 3rd density.
4. It is a plane striving towards wisdom or light.
5. It is a plane wherein individual differences are pronounced although automatically harmonized by group consensus. (B1, S16, 157)
6. There is no disharmony within the self or within other peoples. It is not within the limits of possibility to cause disharmony in any way. (B1, S16, 157)
7. When sickness is present, it is easily healed. (B1, S16, 157)
RA: The 4th density is one of revealed information. Selves are not hidden to self or otherselves. The imbalances or distortions which are of a destructive nature show in mote obvious ways, the body acting as a machine resource for self revelation [Recall that ACIM calls the body a learning device for the mind].
Illnesses such as cancer are very amenable to self-healing once the mechanism of the destructive influence has been grasped by the individual. (B2, S40, 82)
RA: The 4th density abounds in compassion. This compassion is folly when seen through the eyes of wisdom. It is the salvation of 3rd density but creates a mismatch in the ultimate balance of the entity. (B2, S42, 95)
C. THE NEED TO CONSUME FOOD TEACHES PATIENCE
QUESTION: Is the physical vehicle similar to the one in 3rd density? (B2, S43, 103)
RA: The chemical elements are not the same. However, the appearance is similar.
QUESTION: Is it necessary to eat food?
RA: This is correct. (B2, S43, 103)
QUESTION: This means that some kind of social catalyst, like having to work to get food, is active in 4th density. Is this correct?
RA: This is incorrect. The 4th density being desires to serve and the preparation of foodstuffs is extremely simple due to increased communication between entity and living foodstuff. Therefore, the work needed to acquire food is not a significant catalyst. But there is a catalyst involved. It is the necessity for eating the food. Eating food is not considered to be of importance to 4th density entities and therefore it aids in teaching patience. (B2, S43, 104)
QUESTION: How does it teach patience?
RA: To stop the functioning of service-to-others long enough to ingest food is to invoke patience. (B2, S43, 104)
D. THE SOCIAL MEMORY COMPLEX IS A 4TH DENSITY PHENOMENON. (B2, S38, 72)
RA: The work that is accomplished in positive 4th density is that work whereby the positive social memory complex, having through slow stages, harmoniously integrated itself, goes forth to aid those of less positive orientation which seek their aid.
Greater and greater intensities of understanding or compassion are attained. This intensity continues until the appropriate intensity of the light may be welcomed. This is 4th density harvest. (B2, S48, 119)
QUESTION: At what stage does a planet achieve social memory?
RA: When its entire group of entities are of one orientation or seeking. Then the group memory lost to the individuals in the roots of the tree of mind becomes known to the social complex, thus creating a social memory complex. (B2, S48, 119)
RA: When a group of mind/body/spirits becomes able to form a social memory complex, all experiences of each entity is available to the whole of the complex. (B2, S47, 111)
E. IS AN ENTITY IN THE 4TH DENSITY NORMALLY INVISIBLE TO US?
RA: The 4th density is, by choice, not visible to third density. It is possible for 4th density to be visible. However, the 4th density entity must concentrate upon a rather difficult vibrational pattern or complex - which is the 3rd density you experience. (B1, S12, 126)
F. IT HAS THE CONCEPT OF PROTECTING LOVED OTHER-SELVES
RA: The impulse to protect the loved other-self is one which persists through the 4th density, a density abounding in compassion. (B2, S33, 48)
G. LIFESPAN AND LENGTH OF CYCLE
RA: The typical time for one incarnation or "lifetime" in the harmonious 4th density is approximately 90,000 of your years as you measure time. (B2, S43, 102)
QUESTION: How long is a cycle of experience in 4th density in our years?
RA: The cycle lasts approximately 30 million of your years if the entities are not capable of being harvested sooner. (B2, S43, 103) [NOTE: Recall that the cycle for 3rd density is 75 thousand years.]
IX. THE 4TH DENSITY FOR THOSE OF NEGATIVE ORIENTATION
QUESTION: Could you give me some idea of what conditions are like on a 4th density negative or service-to-self planet?
RA: The planetary conditions of 4th density negative include the constant alignment and realignment of entities in efforts to form dominant patterns of combined energy. The early 4th density is ore of most intensive struggle.
When the order of authority has been established and all have fought until convinced that each is in the proper placement for power structure, the social memory complex begins. The 4th density effect of telepathy and the transparency of thought are always used for the sake of those at the top of the power structure. (B2, S38, 73-74)
RA: In the 4th density the methods used in battle are mental rather than manifested weapons. (B3, S63, 123)
