I. FEEDING THE HUNGRY
QUESTION: Many people try to help those who are in need, giving them food if there is hunger as there is now in the African nations, by bringing them medicine when needed. This is creating a vibration that is in harmony with green-ray (love) or 4th density but it is not balanced with the understanding of 5th density that these entities are experiencing catalysts, and
a more balanced administration of the needs of the hungry would be to provide them with the learning necessary to reach the sate of awareness of 4th density than it would be to minister to their physical needs at this time. Is this correct? (B2, 96)
RA: This is incorrect.
TO AN ENTITY WHICH IS STARVING, THE APPROPRIATE RESPONSE IS THE FEEDING OF THE BODY.
You may extrapolate from this. On the other hand, you are correct in your assumption that the green ray response is not as refined as that which has been imbued with wisdom. The
wisdom enables the entity to appreciate its contributions to the planetary consciousness by the quality of its being without regard to activity or behavior which expects results on the physical planes. (B2, 96)
II. PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP
QUESTION: What type of parent child relationship would aid in the activation of the energy centers from red to violet? (B2, 99)
RA: The appropriate teaching device of parents is the open-hearted being-ness of the parent and the total acceptance of the being-ness of the child.
There are two things that are especially important in this relationship other than the basic acceptance of the child.
(1) Firstly, the experience of whatever means the parent uses to worship and give thanksgiving to the One Infinite Creator should, if possible, be shared with the child entity on a daily basis.III. GIVING SUPPORT IN DIFFICULT TIMES
(2) Second, the compassion of the parent to child may well be tempered by the use of discipline due to the understanding that the child entity may well learn the biases of service-to-others or service-to-self from the parental other-self. This is the reason that some discipline is appropriate. (B2, 99)
QUESTION: Can you give suggestions regarding the instrument's upcoming hospital experience?
RA: We may make one suggestion and leave the remainder with the Creator.
It is well for each to realize its self as the Creator.
Thusly each may support each including the support of self by humble love of self as Creator. (B3, 188)
26. AN IMPORTANT VARIABLE: POLARITY
I. ANALOGOUS TO ELECTRICITY
QUESTION: It seems there is an extreme potential in this polarization the same as there is in electricity. In a battery there is a positive and negative pole or terminal. The more you build the charge on either of these, the more the voltage, or potential difference, and the greater the ability to do physical work. Is this a correct analogy? (B1, 182)
RA: This is precisely correct.
QUESTION. If we have no polarity in electricity, we have no action. If we have no polarity in consciousness, we also have no action or experience. Is this correct?
RA: This is correct. The thing that is missing without polarity is the charge. The charge is provided by the individualized entity using the in-pourings and in-streamings of energy by the choices of free will. (B1, 185)
QUESTION: To make an analogy, when polarization in the atmosphere occurs to create thunderstorms, lightning, and much activity, this more vivid experience could be likened to the polarization in consciousness which creates the more vivid experience. Is this correct? (B4, 165)
RA: Given a disclaimer about the conditions producing the storm, we agree with this analogy.
II. THE TURNING POINT
RA: There is a turning point, a fulcrum which swings as an entity makes its will to service. If this will and desire is for service-to-others, the corresponding polarity will be activated.
In the circumstances of this group there are three such wills acting as one with the instrument in the central position of fidelity to service. This is as it must be for the balance of the working and the continuance of the contact.
Our vibratory complex is one-pointed in these workings and our will to serve is also of some degree of purity. This has attracted the attention of the polar opposite which you experience. (B3, 165)
III. INVOKING OF LIGHT STRENGTH
A CONFIGURATION OF FREE WILL, ONE-POINTED IN SERVICE-TO-OTHERS, ALSO HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR THE ALERTING OF A GREAT MASS OF LIGHT STRENGTH.
THIS POSITIVE LIGHT STRENGTH, HOWEVER, OPERATES ALSO UNDER FREE WILL AND MUST BE INVOKED.
We could not speak to this and shall not guide you, for the nature of this contact is such that the purity of your free will must, above all things, be preserved. (B3, 165)
RA: Those who are upon the service-to-others path may also call upon the light strength in direct proportion to the strength and purity of their will to serve. (B3, 170)
IV. SWITCHING BACK FROM NEGATIVE ORIENTATION TO POSITIVE
RA: The entity which incarnates into negative space/time will not find it possible to maintain any significant positive polarity as negativity, when pure, is a type of gravity well that pulls everything into it.
Thus the entity, while remembering its learned and preferred polarity, must needs make use of the catalyst given and recapitulate the lessons of service to self in order to build up enough polarity in order to cause the potential to occur for reversal of polarization. (B3, 154)
V. RELATION BETWEEN HARVESTABILITY AND DEGREE OF POLARIZATION
QUESTION: Is it possible to increase polarization without increasing harvestability?
RA: In the 3rd density an increase in the serving of others or the serving of self will almost inevitably increase the ability of an entity to enjoy a higher intensity of light. Thus it is almost impossible to polarize without increasing harvestability in 3rd density.
In the 5th density harvest, polarization has very little to do with harvestability. (B3, 156)
