The Law of One

I already said before that my world view is a mixture of things, that I either really experience that way or are – like our Southern neighbours say – “zeker en vast” (definite) next to things, that appeal to me, which interest me, but of which I don’t know too well how to judge them. The subjects elaborated on this page clearly belong – though in different gradations – to this latter category.

Following my acquaintance with the experiences of Edgar Cayce and my further exploration of reincarnation (more about that under the button “Reincarnation/NDE” on the menu bar) I came in touch with other things which were also related to this, like:

  1. The activities of Don Elkins and Carla Rueckert, later on joined by Jim McCarty, which led to the transcriptions of 106 sessions, in which Carla functioned as medium, Don asked the questions and the entity “Ra” communicated with them ‘the instrument’ (= Carla) with as central theme ‘The Law of One’. All the material from those 106 sessions became known as ‘The Ra Material’. Ra presented itself as the same Ra from the old Egypt of the readings of Edgar Cayce.
  2. The activities of Wynn Free and what happened to him when writing his book “The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?” about David Wilcock around 2002. His findings originate from the communication (still ever) via Daphne Karandanis and Terry L. Brown with the Elohim, Ra and also other entities. Until her passing away in 2015 Carla also frequently participated in his weekly conference call programme on the radio.

I am not sure how to judge that information, but many things – in particular those concerning reincarnation and the evolution of our soul – comply very well with the world view, that seems plausible to me based on the sources of reincarnation research and research on Near-Death Experiences (NDE), added to the information of Edgar Cayce and other mediums.

Beforehand still the remark that I find it rather difficult to sketch a clear picture from that vast quantity of information with many points of view and persons involved often with the use of difficult terminology in stories that will look exotic to may people. That will necessarily include many references in the form of separate documents, books and video’s. But like I said I haven’t yet digested all that material myself and there is still much more for further exploration.

It might be good first to give a picture of the background of these persons and their activities before elaborating more on their message, in which “The Law of One” is the key theme.

1.a The activities of Don Elkins, Carla Rueckert and Jim McCarty
Dr. Don Elkins came in touch in the fifties with the impressive work of the Canadian radio engineer Wilbert B. Smith involved in UFO research, who also by himself had contact with extraterrestrials.
Smith had developed questionnaires for witnesses and contactees, he found various channels throughout the US and Canada who all said the same things. Due to the work of Smith  Don knew, that channeling was the best, if not the only way to obtain accurate information about extraterrestrials.

Carla: “I met Don Elkins for the first time in 1962. For me he was a fascinating personality, an unusual combination of a college professor and psychological researcher.
In 1962 I participated as college student in an experiment that Don had set up to test a hypothesis… Harold Price, an engineer of Ford Motor Company, had familiarized Don with certain information, which interested Don very much. It was said that its source was extraterrestrial… Don’s hypothesis was that this phenomenon should be replicable; so he invited some of his engineering students to participate in an experiment… I was the thirteenth participant, after having been interested in the project by a friend”.

19 years went by during which Carla channeled with Don, they started to live together, Don became pilot at an airline and had time available for research projects.

In 1977 they published together a book “Secrets of the UFO” with their experiences of the previous years. Attached also a radio interview on the occasion of that book with findings that attracted attention. In fact there was the foundation for their further activities, which led to the Ra Material.

The Ra Material
Once Jim McCarty also joined to help them in December 1980 their contact improved already within some weeks to a much higher level. Although many people were able to successfully contact 4D and 5D entities, real 6D work like the Law of One series is extremely rare en valuable.

In the introduction of the first of the 5 books on the Ra Material Don Elkins says: “This book is an exact transcription of tape recordings of twenty six sessions of an experiment which was set up to communicate with an extraterrestrial entity. We started the experiment in 1962 and refined the process during nineteen years. In 1981 the experimental results of our efforts strongly changed in quality and accuracy. This book is just a report of the beginning of that later phase of our work.”
After his passing away in 1984 Carla and Jim continued their work from the foundation L/L Research .
Here also a series of audio recordings of the 106 sessions being read out, which someone made.

The channeling
Jim: “Carla departs her physical body and Ra then uses it to make the words, which are the responses to Don’s questions.” (a very slow style of speaking and as regards the words sometimes a strange phrasing, which hampers reading every now and then. See therefore also some explanation at “Concepts”).
Carla: “I challenged that entity in the name of Christ, by asking to disappear if it didn’t come as a messenger of Christ-consciousness. It stayed and thus I opened myself for his channel. I then almost immediately went in a trance and the entity, who called himself Ra, began his series of contacts with us.”
This is different from “conscious” channeling in which thoughts are channeled and interpreted by a conscious individual, contrary to specific wordings, which come through via speech of the medium. The whole process is described in ‘Law of One Book 1’ .

Attached a document of Wynn Free and Jim McCarty on the occasion of the passing away of Carla Rueckert in 2015.

1.b The activities of Wynn Free, Daphne Karandanis and Terry Brown
Wynn Free was until around 2000 a wandering singer and songwriter with great interest in metaphysical matters, including the material of Edgar Cayce. When David Wilcock became known as medium and he interviewed him for the online publication ‘Spirit of Ma’at’ and learned to know David’s material Wynn got the strong idea that he might be the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce, who according to his own saying would return by the end of the past century. David’s source described itself as a group soul with the name Ra. All that absorbed him that much, That he started to extensively investigate that furthermore and on request of the publisher of ‘Spirit of Ma’at’ commenced writing his eventually in 2004 published book “The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?”.

But before it came that far he ended up into a stream of staggering experiences.
During a conference he learned to know Daphne. They started living together and when they shortly after that drove in pouring rain on the highway Daphne started to their surprise to channelen with a source that identified itself as the Council of Elohim. He wrote down the whole story of what  furthermore followed since that first contact in ‘The Creator Gods of the Physical Universe Want to Talk to You’.  Ehen his relation with Daphne became more distant the channeling continued with his friend Terry Brown. Up till today they have weekly radio programmes with conference calls in several groups and he spreads their information via various websites .

Both the information in the Ra Material of Don Elkins, Carla Rueckert and Jim McCarty, and that of David Wilcock as well from his contacts with the group soul Ra, and from the contacts of Wynn Free, Daphne Karandanis and Terry Brown with the Council of Elohim and that from the previous Edgar Cayce until his death in 1945 are in compliance with each other.

2. The Law of One
That Ra Material elaborates on a multitude of subjects and can be downloaded from the website of L/L Research in the form of 5 books with the title ‘THE RA MATERIAL By Ra, An Humble Messenger of The Law of One’

The material is sometimes difficult to read, due to:
– the use of sometimes strange wordings. Therefore here after an explanation of some concepts
– a lacking subject-wise structure. On a separate website is made possible to browse the material by session number or by category (incl. definitions), whereby the material is grouped together by subject

Furthermore, Carla Rueckert made in 2001 a more coherent description of the material in ‘A Wanderers Handbook’

And Mike Waskosky made in 2015 a total overview of the material in an extensive presentation with some hundred slides. Unfortunately his voice is by and now somewhat difficult to follow due to quick and not always clear speaking, but together with the slides that video  gives anyway a clear overview. In addition to that on his own site he has a video of a more general presentation.

I summarize some of those subjects below.

The Law of One

Ra/Rueckert (1981):

  • “You are unity. You are infinity.
    You are love/light, light/love.
    You are.
    This is the Law of One. “(B1, S1, 67)
  • “The Law of One, although beyond all words, may be approximated by saying that all things are one; there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only one identity. All is one; and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.” (B1, S4, 85)
  • “Let us remember that we are all one. This is the great learning/teaching. In this unity lies love. This is a great learning/teaching. In this unity lies light. This is the fundamental teaching of all planes of existence in materialization. Unity, love, light and joy; this is the heart of evolution of the spirit.”
  • “Each responsibility is an honor; and each honor, a responsibility.”
  • “The heart of the discipline of the personality is threefold. One, know yourself. Two, accept yourself. Three, become the Creator. The third step is that step which, when accomplished, renders one the most humble servant of all…”
  • “We suggest the nature of all manifestation to be illusory and functional only insofar as the entity turns from shape and shadow to the One.”


  • Distortion = anything that may erroneously be seen as a separate of individual unit, (since all is one)

– “The first known thing in creation is infinity. The infinity is creation.” Also called “intelligent infinity”
– “Infinity became aware. This was the next step.”
– “First Distortion” or “Law of  Free Will”
– “In this distortion of the Law of One it is recognized that the Creator will know Itself.”
“The Second Distortion”
– “Awareness led to the focus of Infinity into infinite energy” – “The most common [of your] names being Love or Logos”
Love is called “The creative principle” (the Greek Logos)
– “the great activator and primal co-Creator”
– “free will finds focus” through Love
“There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love”
– “The next step is an infinite reaction to the creative principle, [Love, through] freedom of will. Thus many, many dimensions, infinite in number, are possible”
“Light” or “Third Distortion” or “the nature of all energy”
– The “patterns of energy begin to regularize their own local rhythms and energy fields, thus creating dimensions and universes”
– The energies moved in increasingly intelligent patterns until the individualization of various energies emanating from   [Love] became co-Creators. Thus the so called physical matter began.

  • Learning/teaching = is actually insight. The somewhat strange passive/active may mean to avoid interfering with our free will
  • Service to self / Service to others = Selfishness, egocentrism, self interest contrary to altruism, compassion with others, empathy, inclusive thinking
  • vibratory sound complexes = words, names
  • mind/body/spirit complex = our beings consisting of the 3 components: 1) thinking capacity, thoughts, mind, 2) physical body and 3) spirit, soul
  • social memory complex = plural or a whole group of consciousness

In short

  • Ra, Session 4: “The Law of One, though beyond the limitations of name, as you call vibratory sound complexes, may be approximated by stating that all things are one, that there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only identity. All is one, and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.”
  • Ra’s very first statements: “Let us for a moment consider thought. What is it, my friends, to take thought? Took you then thought today? What thoughts did you think today? What thoughts were part of the original thought today? In how many of your thoughts did the creation abide? Was love contained? And was service freely given? You are not part of a material universe. You are part of a thought. You are dancing in a ballroom in which there is no material. You are dancing thoughts. You move your body, your mind, and your spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns for you have not completely grasped the concept that you are part of the original thought.”
  • Don: “Probably the most difficult thing to understand about Ra is its nature. Ra is a sixth-density social memory complex. Since Earth is near the end of the third-density cycle of evolution, this means that Ra is three evolutionary cycles ahead of us. In other words, Ra’s present state of evolution is millions of years in advance of Earthman’s”
  • Ra only responds to questions
    2.1 “[we have] one particular method of communicating [with people]… and that is to respond to queries for information. We are comfortable with this format.”
    “I will not suggest the proper series of questions. This is your prerogative as free agent of the Law of One”
  • 6.24 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. … It is a true Confederation in that its members are not alike, but allied in service according to the Law of One.
  • Session 1: [we] made contact with a race of your planetary kind which you call Egyptians. …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 [hate] any.
    “we removed ourselves from the now hypocritical position which we had allowed ourselves to be placed in.”
  • The human template is very common throughout the galaxy but humans on earth have had an unusually hard time adjusting to the diversity of influences we have been subjected to
  • Different ET groups have contributed to our genetics and brought souls here from other planets like Mars and a planet that used to be between Mars and Jupiter that was destroyed by warfare
  • We’re at the end of a 75,000 year cycle of seeking to appreciate the “laws of love” through free will choices – many of us have been reincarnating repeatedly here for much of that time
  • We haven’t done a great job at learning and choosing the laws of love, but that’s okay. Earth’s period of “unabated disharmony” is ending in this decade, and this is actually the time that Jesus spoke about. He also spoke about advanced ETs coming at the end of the age.
  • Our solar system is moving into an energetically dense part of the galaxy that our current physical bodies don’t work well with, but some people are beginning to be born with bodies that will accept the energy
  • We have to appreciate unconditional love to be ready for “4th density” super bodies which are built to begin seeking the “laws of light” – though many people will have to be born on another planet to repeat “3rd density”
  • The “Good Guys” are available to help us when we ask (“the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator.”) The “Council of Saturn” has to approve special requests where our free will could be at stake.
  • The “Bad Guys” have tried to manipulate us for thousands of years attempting to gain influence (“Orion Group”) – they have a separate path but are still part of the overall plan of the galaxy to promote our growth.
  • Many of us are actually from the same races of “good guys” but with lowered vibrations in order to incarnate here, to help during the transition
  • Our galaxy experimented with fully aware and loving beings, but the learning process was too slow, so experiments in forgetting were chosen
  • Certain parts of our galaxy are dedicated to those who with great dedication chose the path of “service to self” where conquest is key
  • Negative ETs and influences are still held on a tight leash through a “quarantine” that helps balance our opportunity to choose our paths
  • In order to evolve to the stage Ra is at, all negative ETs must eventually flip their polarity in order to increase in love even further (love of others becomes easier to see as the same as love of self in the higher planes)
  • Negative higher level ETs that still see a reason to do battle are “depleted through failure to manipulate” while “the positive [are only] depleted through failure to accept that which is given.” [25.5]


1. Water/Fire/Earth/Air (“stones are alive”)
2. Plant/Animal, less often minerals/crystals
3. Intelligent self-awareness – “The Choice”
4. Governed by the Laws of Love or Understanding
5. Governed by the Laws of Light or Wisdom
6. Beings vibrating with the “Law of One” (the Higher Self also)
7. Law of Foreverness – Spiritual mass acquisition before reunion
8. A mystery, but all beings again in the next universe “octave”
Ra: “much is lost in transmission of concept from density to density”

  • [In the first] density of consciousness, the mineral and water life upon the planet learning from the fire and wind. This is the first density.”
  • “As the active principles of fire and air blow and burn incandescently about that which nurtures that which is to come, the water learns to become sea, lake and river offering the opportunity for viable life. The earth learns to be shaped, thus offering the opportunity for viable life.”
  • “…first dimensional beingness strives towards the second density lessons of a type of awareness which includes growth rather than dissolution or random change.” [Takes] perhaps two billion of your years”
  • The second density is the density of the higher plant life and animal life
  • “The second-density concept of serving self includes the serving of those associated with tribe or pack. All is seen as self since in some forms of second-density entities, if the tribe or pack is weakened, so does the entity within the tribe or pack.”
  • “[As opposed to rational thinking they operate] largely upon intuition which proves through practice to yield results”
  • “There is much of blessing in the gardening and the care of surroundings, for when this is accomplished in love of creation the second-density flowers, plants and small animals are aware of this service and return it.”
  • “Perhaps the most common occurrence of second-density graduation during third-density cycle is the so-called pet. The animal is exposed to the individualizing influences of the bond between animal and [person], this individuation causes a sharp rise in the potential of the [animal] so that upon the cessation of physical complex the [animal] mind/body complex, does not return unto the undifferentiated consciousness of that species, if you will.”
  • “The process takes longer when there is no investment made by incarnate third-density beings.”
  • “The entity becomes slowly aware that it has needs, shall we say, that are not animalistic; that is, that are useless for survival. These needs include: the need for companionship, the need for laughter, the need for beauty, the need to know the universe about it. These are the beginning needs.

As the incarnations begin to accumulate, further needs are discovered: the need to trade, the need to love, the need to be loved, the need to elevate animalistic behaviors to a more universal perspective.”

90.12 [Our Logos] chose the bipedal, erect form of the second-density apes to invest [possibly because of] the near complete probability for the development of speech taking complete precedence over concept communication or telepathy… the opposite thumb was looked upon as an excellent means of intensifying the veiling process so that rather than rediscovering the powers of the mind, [we would be] drawn to the making, holdeing and using of physical tools.

19.9 [The second-density form underwent] loss of the body hair, as you call it, the clothing of the body to protect it,  the  changing of the structure of the neck, jaw, and forehead in order to allow the easier vocalization, and the larger cranial development characteristic of third-density needs.

19.13 “the weakening of the physical vehicle, as you call it, was designed to distort entities towards a predisposition to deal with each other. Thus, the lessons which approach a knowing of love can be begun”

The quickest way to learn is to deal with other-selves. This is a much greater catalyst than dealing with the self. Dealing with the self without other-selves is akin to living without what you would call mirrors. Thus, the self can not see the fruits of its beingness. Thus each may aid each by reflection. …a primary reason for the weakening of the physical vehicle…”

  • [75.000 years ago] there were perhaps one half of the third-density population being entities  from the Red Planet Mars, as you call it. Perhaps one quarter from second-density of your planetary sphere. Approximately one quarter from other sources, [14] other planetary spheres whose entities chose this planetary sphere for third-density work.
  • [More recently, billions of new people] “primarily those of the planetary sphere you call Maldek [or Tiamat], having become able to take up third-density once again, were gradually loosed from self-imposed limitations of form”
  • [Those from] Deneb [chose] what you would call China.
  • Our earth supports densities 1 to 3 today, but will soon support the 4th as well
  • 1st density: 2 billion years
  • 2nd density: 4.6 billion years (the longest density)
  • 2n to 3rd density transition: around 1,350 years
  • 3rd density: 25,000 and 75,000 years (precession of the equinoxes times 3)
  • 3rd to 4th density transition (100/150 to 700 years “due to the volatility of your peoples”)
  • 4th density: 30 million years (lifespans are 90,000 years)

What is the “best way” to serve others?

  • “[Specifically] the best way for each seeker in third density to be of service to others is unique to that mind/body/spirit complex. This means that the mind/body/spirit complex must then seek within itself the intelligence of its own discernment as to the way it may best serve other-selves. This will be different for each.”
  • “[Generally] The best way of service to others is the constant attempt to seek to share the love of the Creator as it is known to the inner self. This involves self knowledge and the ability to open the self to the other-self without hesitation. This involves radiating that which is the essence or the heart…”
  • “[Dealing with others,] It is only possible to make catalyst available in whatever form, the most important being the radiation of realization of oneness with the Creator from the self”
  • “Another self cannot teach enlightenment, but only teach/learn information, inspiration, or a sharing of love, of mystery, of the unknown that makes the other-self reach out and begin the seeking process that ends in a moment, but who can know when an entity will open the gate to the present?”

Het Higher Self

You are existing at all levels simultaneously. It is correct that your higher self is you in mid-sixth density and, in your way of measuring what you know of as time, your higher self is your self in your future.

70.10 The seeming contradictions of determinism and free will melt when it is accepted that there is such a thing as true simultaneity. The higher self is the end result of all the development experienced by the mind/body/spirit complex to that point.

37.6 the higher self is like the map in which the destination is known; the roads are very well known, these roads being designed by intelligent infinity working through intelligent energy. However, the higher self aspect can program only for the lessons and certain predisposing limitations if it wishes. The remainder is completely the free choice of each entity. There is the perfect balance between the known and the unknown.

  • “The Higher Self, as you call it, that is, that self which exists with full understanding of the accumulation of experiences of the entity, aids the entity in achieving healing of the experiences which have not been learned properly and assists in further life experience programming, as you may call it.”
  • “The higher self aspect can program only for the lessons and certain predisposing limitations if it wishes. The remainder is completely the free choice of each entity.”
  • “It is more likely for positively oriented individuals to be experiencing distortions within the physical complex due to the lack of consuming interest in the self and the emphasis on service to others. Moreover, in an unpolarized entity catalyst of the physical distortion nature will be generated at random. The hopeful result is, as you say, the original choice of polarity. Oftentimes this choice is not made but the catalyst continues to be generated. In the negatively oriented individual the physical body is likely to be more carefully tended and the mind disciplined against physical distortions.”


• “Our understanding of karma is that which may be called inertia. Those actions which are put into motion will continue using the ways of balancing until such time as the controlling or higher principle which you may liken unto your braking or stopping is invoked. This stoppage of the inertia of action may be called forgiveness. These two concepts are inseparable.”
In forgiveness lies the stoppage of the wheel of action, or what you call karma.”Q: “is there then programming that sometimes occurs so that he will experience catalyst that will enable him to get to a point of forgiveness thereby alleviating the karma?”
A: “This is, in general, correct. However, both self and any involved other-self may, at any time through the process of understanding, acceptance, and forgiveness, ameliorate these patterns. This is true at any point in an incarnative pattern. Thus one who has set in motion an action may forgive itself and never again make that error. This also brakes or stops what you call karma.”The karma of others is not your business:
“To a mind/body/spirit complex which is starving, the appropriate response is the feeding of the body. You may extrapolate from this.”
“We can suggest an attempt to become aware of the other-self as self and thus do that action which is needed by other-self, understanding from the other-self’s intelligence and awareness. In many cases this does not involve the breaking of the distortion of free will into a distortion or fragmentation called infringement. However, it is a delicate matter to be of service, and compassion, sensitivity, and an ability to empathize are helpful in avoiding the distortions of man-made intelligence and awareness.”

Actually, the Law of One material consists of at least four stories:

  • In the materialist sphere everything is illusory, thoughts, part of the Logos, Infinite Intelligence (the same as Saint John: In the beginning was the Word). After that consciousness, then energy fields and the beginning of time and space. Time/space: love and space/time: light
  • The various density-entities and evolution of the soul, spirit, the Higher Self in many subsequent reincarnations
  • The planet Earth is in the 3rd density and the only sphere, where incarnated souls can choose with their free will for either service-to-others or service-to-self with karma as consequence
  • The transition from 3rd towards 4th density by the end of the 75,000 years cycle is nearing since the earth is coming now in a more dense energy field with higher vibration nearer to the sun. That will happen in the decade around 2012 (between now and 2022?). Those who are ready for it (service to others) will graduate, the others go to another 3rd density planet.
