One of the things we need is information which puts the confusion of this era into some kind of coherent perspective. The Ra Material is a densely writtten book which can be difficult reading at times due to the 'download' format from an intelligence trying to inform us in our language, which seems inadequate to the task the entity 'Ra' is attempting to perform.
However, if the reader perseveres, there are many rewards. I bought this book years ago and had it stashed away in my bookshelves. I dragged it out again this past year, and surprise, it actually does have something very important to say about the cuurent political life of lies and obfuscation. Then I ploughed through Books 2,3,4, and 5. The book I just recently bought was actually a gift for a friend. He has since read it and we communicate now in peace and harmony always cognizant of the Law of Confusion and typos.
One thing I must express is my appreciation of the sacrifices and diligent work of the group who brought this information to the public.

The scope of information in this book opens your eyes to what 'life' is all about. One of the most important pieces of work to ever be put together. Who better to educate you than an advanced being through their love of service to mankind, to help uncover all the BS one has been fed all their lives. Their words (as tough as it must have been through the use of our primitive language) completely resonated with me, and just knew it as truth. Some of the material was a little monotonous from poor questions, however still important to many. A must for anyone wanting to know exactly what this physical reality is all about.

This will ROCK YOUR SOCKS OFF!Feb. 16 2005
all love based paths lead to God
- Published on Amazon.com
There is a lot of channeled material out there, some good and some not so good. I think it is important to use discernment when reading channeled material, just as it is important to use discernment when reading anything, or when listening to a preacher talk.
Ultimately, the truth is inside of us, but we don't know it. So it helps to have it confirmed by `outside' sources. Sometimes we come across something that has that ring of truth in it, and we know it is appropriate for us in this point of time in out lives. Not necessarily appropriate for everyone at all times, or even for ourselves at all times, but appropriate in the now, for where we are at right now.
Thus, I have encountered many books and other sources of info that have all had varying degrees of what I consider `truth', but no one of them being THE TRUTH. (I have long ago dismissed the bible as THE truth, but consider it to have SOME truth in it, while most of it has been distorted.)
The Law of One books are the closest I have found to being THE truth. Many of the channeled works out there are cheesy, or they come across too `authoritative' ie `...in such-and-such year this WILL happen...', `...that IS the way it IS...', etc.
Ra, on the other hand, does not claim to be an authority. Rather, this entity repeatedly tells us to please use discernment and accept only that which resonates as truth within ourselves. Then proceeds to give info that totally rocks your socks off!
This stuff is deep, very deep. I have never read anything else, channeled or not, that even comes close to such high caliber! It is just completely obvious to me that the info really is coming from a higher being, cuz no way anyone could have made all this up!
OK, maybe someone could have. But this info came thru a woman in a trance, and she did not even know what she was saying until she woke up. Even very specific details are consistent throughout the text, over the course of several years of channeling.
AND, the material describes a cosmology that was ahead of its time. Certain aspects of quantum physics, for example, described in the books had not yet been discovered. So no, no one could have made this up!
When you read the material, you get a very strong sense of HIGHER KNOWLEDGE. It's just really obvious that this is NOT coming from a human source, the way most other channeled material seems to be. I had a lot of 'Aha' moments while reading it...in fact, pretty much every sentence!
But, my purpose is NOT to try to convince you. B4 the skeptics start, let me say that I am NOT trying to prove that this channeled work is authentic - if you are searching for absolute proof, then clearly this book (or any channeled work) is not for you. Better to stay in an organized religion and do as they tell you.
However, if you are a serious seeker who is not afraid to think for yourself, then I highly recommend you give these books a try. Prepare to have your mind opened!
If you're still with me, then maybe you'd like to know what the books are about. OK, for starters: the nature of life, the universe, how the pyramids were built, who the aliens are, the chakras, other dimensions, the important elements of a spiritual path, the nature of sexuality, etc. and lots of other interesting topics. But that is not what makes these books stand out - other books have tried to address these topics as well.
What makes the Law of One stand out is the explanation of `Good' vs `Evil'.
If you find the idea of a `good God' being in a constant war with the `evil Satan' oversimplistic, or if you believe that God is all-powerful and beyond good and evil, or if you have a hard time believing that God will `lose' most of the world's population to the `devil', and you are searching for a more intelligent explanation of why there is evil in the world, then these books might be for you.
Or, if you are tired of all the `doom and gloom' prophecies and would like to rekindle hope, then these books might be for you.
Be forewarned: these books are NOT light and fluffy. And whatever you believe, they will challenge you. But they will also inspire you, and give comfort.

THE TRUTH OUT THERE BEFORE IT BECAME HIPFeb. 16 2000
- Published on Amazon.com
The history of psychic channelling and channelled material has a long and checkered past. In the last century, at least in the West, the seriousness and quality of such work has been generally dismissed as something between a quaint parlor trick and delusional doomsday prophesying. In a broader historical context, however, channeling has been accepted for 1000's of years as a genuine means of acquiring valid and useful information. Consider that much of the Bible, as the divinely inspired Word of God, easily qualifies as channelled material. It is from this latter context that I view the RA Material. From an intuitive standpoint the information contained within this first book, as well as, the remaining four other books rings true. The channelled entity RA claims to be a higher dimensional being of collective intelligence with karmic connections to Earth and it's ensouled inhabitants. Essentially, the message is as follows: Long ago, Earth was selected by benevolent higher dimensional beings as a planet for the seeding of Life in all its myriad forms including humankind. These beings are members of an "intergalactic federation" of sorts comprised of various advanced intelligences with representatives from assorted civilizations throughout the universe. There "mission" is to oversee and nurture the development and evolution of other less advanced civilizations while not interfering with planetary affairs or indvidual lives to the point of violating Free Will. One realizes that at some point, the distictions between angels and highly developed extra-dimensional alien beings who watch over us with concern and care are rougly one and the same. Throughout history, they have periodically attempted to gently steer us away from the darkness of possible destruction and towards the light of soul development or evolution by offering wisdom and understanding through various means ranging from inspiration in dreams to direct physical contact. Their message is The Law Of One which states that the Creator is real, that the universe and everything in it is His creation, and that Love is not only also real but a powerful energetic force of Creation. We are all souls having a "human experience" over many physical incarnations for the purpose of learning truths which will allow us to move on to the next level of development in an endless jouney to become one with the Creator again. This is but a brief synopsis and doesn't do justice to the remarkable amount of information and specific detail contained in the five books. The books were written in the early 1980's, and the fact that a great many of RA's statements have come to pass in the last twenty years lends credence to the overall quality of the work and channelling in general. In my experience, this material is the best of it's kind, easily ranking with the Jane Roberts' Seth books. Read the RA Material and enjoy the feeling of wonder again and again.

The Ra material is the transcription of the taped communications between researcher Don and the entity RA, a being that is talking through Carla, often referred to as the "instrument" throughout the book (s), in a state of deep trance. The transcriptions are carried out by Jim and the three are always present during all sessions, creating a triangulation of light that allows for RA, a sixth dimensional being, that calles itself a "socialmemory complex", to come through and speak. RA has choosen this group because of the purity of their intent and makes himself available to them for questions about the Universe, the Creator, the dimensions, Karma, the law of One and any other material that might aid people in understanding universal truths that might be helpful for mankinds evolution. The materail is very esoteric and requires some concentration. However, it is well worth the effort, as it is enlightening, very precise, accurate and informative. The explanations around the shift in dimensions we are about to undergo on the planet, that Ra defines as the harvest, are devoid of hype and sensation. Harvest is a process that all beings and planetary bodies eventually encur, following physical/spiritual law just as eclipses do or the seasons.The science of the harvest ( ascension) is explained in depth here as is the chakra system and it's role in Soul evolution. Also extremely interesting the explanation of the polarization of entities into Service to Self orintated entities and Service to Others orientated entities and the implications these have in the ascension process and the roles they play within the bigger picture. A really deep read and well worth the effort. I have read all four volumes and I am about to tackle vol 5. I thoroughly recommend it.

This is it!April 27 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
I discovered this material in the early '80s about the time it was released. I was blown away then and still am. I'll never forget the feeling - something similar to having uncovered a profound and precious secret. I remain convinced that other than ACIM, this may be the ONLY channeled material out there that is what it purports to be. Much more recently, I've begun kinesiologically calibrating books, people, spiritual teachers, institutions with the method taught by Dr. David Hawkins. The Law of One books collectively calibrate (or they did with my calibration) at over 800, in fact somewhere in the neighborhood of 850 if I remember correctly. Astounding, considering that Hawkins states that less than 5% of channeled material calibrates over 455.That's about all I can say. Uh...Adonai.

This is another channeling book. It is the first of four volumes. The entity being channeled is "Ra" of the sixth density of consciousness with the peoples of Earth being third density. Ra's intent is to communicate "THE LAW OF ONE" while not violating the distorted "Law of Confusion" or what we term free will. Because of Ra and his sixth density's associate's attempts to communicate their message of "The Law of One" as physical entities, the peoples of Egypt at that time distorted the message and considered Ra a God. I could find very little to disagree with in terms of any distorted messages being channeled thru Carla Ruechert. In fact the Ra Material seems to make the Edgar Cayce Material and the Seth Material appear distorted. Except for the introduction, the entire book is configured in a question/answer format. For a flavor of the book, below is an excerpt from the channeled Ra material from the introduction:
"I cannot over-emphasize the necessity of becoming able to understand the nature of the potentials within your illusion and then, by self-analysis and meditation, reacting to that in a way that will express the thought that generated us: the thought of our creator. This was done by the teacher whom you know as Jesus. This man recognized his position. He recognized the illusion, and his reaction to these potentials and activities within the illusion was a reaction which was expressing the thought of the Creator, a thought of love.
"Keep uppermost in your mind that the illusion that you experience is an illusion, that it is surrounding you for the purpose of teaching you. It can only teach you if you become aware of its teachings. It is said that `He worked His wonders in mysterious ways.' This way may seem mysterious; however, it is the way of spiritual evolvement. There are many souls experiencing the illusion in which you find yourself; however, there are few using this illusion to grow. They are not doing this other than at a subliminal level because they have not availed themselves through their seeing to a knowledge of the possibility of doing this."
The question/answer dialog continues with fantastic information like: -Our planet is currently transitioning into the fourth density. -Most of us humans are not able to make the "jump" to the fourth dimension due to our lower vibration. Most of us will repeat the third density until we raise our vibration to the "color of violet". This is in alignment with hypnotic regression material of "life after life experiences". -The asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter was once a planet by the name of Maldek. The Maldek civilization destroyed the planet complete thru war. The third density of the Maldek mind/complex was tied up into what can be compared to a knot of fear and remained that way for well over a hundred thousand years. Since that time some have come to this planet to work out their Karmic debt in the second density. -Roughly half the current incarnations on Earth started their lives on Mars but needed to finish out their third density experience on Earth since Mars lost their environment. These were the entities that comprised the civilization known as Atlantis. -The fourth density experience is preceded with the lesson of love which is to be learned in the third density. -The one known as Jesus is in the highest octave of the fourth density and was able to move to the fifth density but chose to stay behind to help third density mind/body/spirit complexes. -When we are able to grasp the concept of intelligent infinitely, only then will we be able to open the gateway to the Law of One. -The great pyramid was not built as a result of moving the stones. The stones were created by The Confederation using the thought/form process. In other words the stones were created in place by the Confederation (Sixth Density mind/body/complex entities). -Edgar Cayce was not a channel. He had the ability to access the Akashic Record or what is also termed the Hall of Records. -The Confederation made contact with Egypt, Atlantis and the civilizations of South America. Contact in Atlantis resulted in perversions of the Law of One and the continent of Atlantis was destroyed by war (Nuclear and Crystal technology). -The Orion Group is a negatively charged group of individuals that practice "Love of Self" which is an acceptable path given that the self they love is also part of intelligent infinity or God.
Again, I could find little if any distortions in this book. Most of the time, I had difficulties putting this book down. It was very enjoyable and helpful explaining the various densities of existence in this octave of experience. I plan on reading the next book of Ra material.
"I leave you in the love and the light of the one Infinite Intelligence which is the Creator. Go forth rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One. Adonai."
