following is an excerpt from the introduction section to
the following book: The RA MATERIAL: AN ANCIENT
copyright for this book is 1984 however, the
transcription of the RA receivings are between January 15, 1981 and February 17, 1981.
leads me to believe the following message(s) from Hatonn are from
around 1980. Perhaps even earlier.
We are very privileged to have you join with us in this great
service at this time in the history of your planet. For this is a
very great time, a great transitional period, in which many of the
Earth’s people will be raised from their state of confusion to a
simple understanding: the love of their Creator.
Hatonn speaks of our desire to seek something outside the physical
illusion. What he talks about so persuasively is something that is
often referred to by members of what Ra calls the Confederation of
Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator as ’the original
thought.’ This is another term for our word, "love," but implies a
great deal more. It implies a unity that is so great that we do not
see each other simply as close friends, or brothers and sisters,
but, ideally, as the Creator; and, as we see each other and
ourselves as the Creator, we see one being. This concept is at the
very heart of telepathy and Hatonn talks about this concept and the
original thought in general:
At this time I am in a craft far above your place of dwelling. I am
at this time able to monitor your thoughts. This, my friends, might
seem to some of your peoples to be an infringement, but I can assure
you that it is not. Our capabilities of knowing the thinking of the
peoples of this planet Earth are not designed in any way to infringe
upon either their thinking or their activities. We do not consider
the knowledge of the thoughts of others to bean infringement for we
see these thoughts as our own. We see these thoughts as the thoughts
of the Creator.
My friends, it may seem to you that a thought of a nature other than
one of love and brotherhood might be a thought generated not of our
Creator. This is not possible, my friends. All thought that is
generated is generated by the Creator. All things that are generated
are generated by the Creator. He is all things and is in all places,
and all of the consciousness and all of the thought that exists is
the thought of our Creator.
His infinite number of parts all have free will, and all may
generate in any way they choose. All of His parts communicate with
all of the creation, in His entire and infinite sense.
We are not attempting to change the thinking of our
Creator. We are
only attempting to bring His ideas to some of the more isolated
parts for their inspection and appraisal. Isolated parts, I say, my
friends, and why should we consider these parts to be isolated? We
consider them isolated because from our point of view they have
chosen to wander far from the concept that we have found to permeate
most of the parts of the creation with which we are familiar. We
find, my friends, that man upon planet Earth in his experiences and
experiments has become isolated in his thinking and has divorced it
from that to which we are accustomed in the vast reaches of creation
which we have experienced.
I urge you, my friends, to remember what we have brought to you. The
next time that you are, shall we say, backed into a corner by the
circumstances which prevail within the illusion of your physical
existence, remember what you have learned and do not forget what you
have worked so hard to obtain. You will choose at any time to alter
your needs and desires from within the physical illusion to your
being within the creation of the Father. As long as your objectives
lie within this physical illusion it will be necessary for you to be
subject to the laws which prevail within this illusion. If your
desires can be altered by the application of what you are learning
and are lifted in the creation of the Infinite One, then, my
friends, you may have a great deal more ability to remove yourself
from the corners into which the illusion seems to back you.
To some who may read these words the concepts may seem to be a less
than practical and certainly overly idealistic method of discussing
what many have called the new age or the Age of Aquarius. It
certainly seems unlikely that an entire planet could go so wrong
philosophically and that beings supposedly more advanced than we
would care enough about us to attempt to help us.
However as we look for the heart of the "cosmic" system of
philosophy, we find much that is clear and simple without being
simplistic in the least, much that is ethical without being
dogmatic—in short, much that is informative. Here Hatonn speaks of
the nature of reality, which, in the main, seems to have escaped the
notice of Earth man:
All of this may be very simply remedied, and man can once more
return to an appreciation of reality rather than an appreciation of
the illusion created by his m I rid. All that s necessary, my
friends, is that he individually avail himself to this appreciation
of reality through the process of meditation, for this process
stills his active conscious mind which is continually seeking
stimulus within the illusion developed over so many centuries of
time upon planet Earth. Very rapidly, then, he can return to an
appreciation of the reality in the functioning of the real creation.
This, my friends, is what man of Earth must return to if he is to
know reality: this simple thought of absolute love, a thought of
total unity with all his brothers regardless of how they might
express themselves or whom they might be, for this is the original
thought of your Creator.
The creation of the Father, then, as
Hatonn calls it, has a very
simple nature, a nature in which love is the essence of all things
and of all their functions.
Yet this "real"
creation obviously is not uppermost in most of our
minds because we live in a day-to-day atmosphere to which the
Confederation has referred quite often as an illusion.
We of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite
Creator have been, for many of your years, aware of many principles
of reality. We are aware of these principles because we have availed
ourselves to them just as the people of your planet may do.
It is possible through meditation to totally reduce the illusion
that you now experience that creates the separation-an illusory
separation-to what it actually is, a total illusion. We have been
continuing to speak to you about meditation. We have spoken to you
many times about reality and about love and about understanding, and
yet you do not seem to be able to overcome the illusion.
The reason for the illusion, my friends, is one that
man on Earth
has generated. He has generated it out of desire. This illusion is
useful. It is very useful for those who would wish to evolve at a
very rapid rate by experiencing it and by using it while within it.
Many of us who are now circling your planet would desire to have the
opportunity that you have, the opportunity to be within the illusion
and then, through the generation of understanding, use the
potentials of the illusion. This is a way of gaining progress
spiritually and has been sought out by many of our brothers.
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. He understood
the reason for the potentials within the illusion, and h I s
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 seeking to a knowledge of
the possibility of doing this.
As you have by now become aware,
meditation is always suggested as
the best means of attaining understanding, of progressing
spiritually, and of understanding the nature of the illusion and the
purpose for which you are experiencing it. Each person is involved
in an illusion or game in which we may, if we wish, use our
consciousness in meditation in such a way as to create a more rapid
growth in personal evolution. But how do we bring ourselves to the
point at which this process, which often seems very difficult, is
grasped and begun?
Desire, my friends, is the key to what you receive. If you desire
it, you shall receive it. This was the Creator’s plan, a plan in
which all of His parts would receive exactly what they desire. My
friends, often in the illusion which you now experience it seems
that you do not acquire what you desire. In fact, the opposite seems
to be the case in many, many instances. It is a paradox, it seems,
that such a statement should be made and that such apparent results
of desire are manifested, and yet we state, without exception, that
man receives exactly what he desires.
Perhaps, my friends, you do
not understand desire. Perhaps this understanding is not within the
intellectual mind. Perhaps it will be necessary to spend time in
meditation to become aware of your real desire. For, my friends,
there is much, much more of you and of the creation than you
presently appreciate with your intellectual abilities in your
It is very difficult for the peoples of this planet to give up their
illusion, to give up the preconceived knowledge of what they believe
to be cause and effect. However, this is not reality. This is
illusion, born of illusion. It is a simple product of the complexity
that man upon this planet has generated. Join with us in divorcing
your thinking from such complexities and become aware of what has
created you, everything that you experience, and everything that is
Become aware of your
Creator. Become aware of His desire,
and when you know this desire you will know your own, for you and
your Creator are one, and you are one with all of His parts and,
therefore, all of your fellow beings throughout all of the creation.
When you know His desire you will feel it. There will be no more
confusion. There will be no more questions. You will have found what
you have sought. You will have found Love, for this is the desire of
your Creator: that all of His parts express and experience the Love
that created you. This may be found simply, in meditation. No amount
of seeking within the intellectual concepts of your people, no
amount of careful planning or careful interpretation of the written
or spoken word will lead you to the simple truth.
The Confederation messages concentrate a great deal upon the concept
of seeking and of desire, feeling that the will of each
absolutely central to each entity’s quest for evolution. In fact,
they say, free will is at the foundation of the universe. Each
entity is conceived not only as being part of one unity but also as
being a totally unique part of that unity. Each person’s free will
is quite paramount and the Confederation’s concern is always to
avoid infringement upon the free will of any person. Their method of
contacting man on Earth takes its form from a deep concern for this
We do not wish to impose our understanding of truth upon your
peoples, and this would be something that we would do if we
contacted them directly. We could not help it, for our very
utterance of truth would be accepted by many of your peoples as
being valid. We do not wish to be thought of as the ultimate
representatives of the Creator’s truth. We wish to give this to your
peoples in such a way so that they may accept or reject this at
their own will. This, as we understand it, is a necessary provision
in the spiritual evolvement of all mankind: that he be, at some
state of his evolution, in a position to accept or reject what is
necessary for his evolution. In this way, and only in this way, can
he know the truth, the truth of the Creator, that single truth that
is the creation, the truth of the love of the creation.
It must be realized from within. It cannot be impressed from
without. We are attempting to stimulate those of your peoples who
would be stimulated to seeking this truth that is within them. We
have been required by our understanding of our Creator’s principle
to remain in hiding, for we cannot serve one individual and at the
same time do a disservice to his neighbor by proving within his own
mind that we exist, for many of those of planet Earth at this time
do not desire to believe in or have proof of our existence. For this
reason we find it necessary to speak to those who seek through
channels such as this one. We find it necessary to give to those who
seek that which they seek in such a way that they, for themselves,
may appraise its value and accept or reject, on their own terms,
those thoughts that we bring, and understand the reality of the
creation in which all of us exist.
Once the desire to receive this message has been developed the
messages are indeed available, not just from our group but from many
so-called contactee or channeling groups around the world. Indeed,
you will find little new in the "cosmic" system of philosophy. Those
concepts are basic, profound, and simple. The Confederation has a
name for one of the great goals of this system of meditation and
Many of your peoples are at this time seeking outside their
illusion. To those who seek, we offer our understanding. We do not
attempt to say that we have ultimate wisdom. We only suggest that
that which we have to offer may be of value, for we have found, in
our experience, as we have passed through the same experiences as
those of Earth, that there is a most beneficial direction in seeking
to serve. We are acting through instruments such as those here
tonight to give to those who seek, an understanding. Our presence is
meant to stimulate seeking.
Through this process, we hope to contact
as many of the peoples of your planet as would desire our contact.
We hope in the very near future to be able to contact many more of
the peoples of your planet, the peoples who would desire
understanding. It is difficult to contact those people of your
planet because of this, shall I say, mixture of types, but it is
well worth our effort if we are able to contact but one.
We will continue to act as we do now, speaking through instruments
such as this one, until a sufficient number of the peoples of your
planet have become aware of truth. We are constantly striving to
bring, through many channels of communication, the simple message to
the peoples of Earth: the simple message that will leave them with a
simple understanding of all that there is, and that is love.
But understanding, that understanding which shows us the
love of an
Infinite Creator, is again and again described as being possible far
more easily through the processes of meditation than by any other
There are pieces of information that are of importance and there are
pieces of information that are not. Wisdom is a rather lonely
matter, my friends. You must accept this truth as you acquire the
burden o f wisdom. That which you know, you are to be careful of,
for what you know in the real creation has power, and that which you
desire is all of the direction which that power will be aimed at;
but have faith, my friends, in what you know and what you are
Feed your faith and your understanding through meditation.
The further that you go along this path, my friends, the more
meaningful you will find this simple statement: meditate. It begins
as a simple process and, little by little, it becomes a way in which
you live. Observe it as you progress along your own spiritual path.
It is frequently suggested in
contactee messages that the state of
mind of the seeker has the opportunity of being continuously in a
far more pleasant configuration than is the mind of one who is not
actively engaged in pursuing a path of self-knowledge and seeking.
However, there are other fruits of the path of meditation and
seeking which are predictable and which engage the attention of
those who channel these messages.
It is to be remembered, my friends, that
service to others is
service to one’s self. Notice that we do not say that service is
like unto service to one’s self. There is no similarity between
others and ourselves. There is identity. There is completion and
unity. Therefore, that which is felt of a negative nature towards a
sheep of the flock is felt towards one’s self and is felt toward the
Creator. This enters the service which you attempt to give to
yourself and to the Creator through service to another and causes a
blot or a stain upon the perfect service you would have performed.
It must be remembered that each person is a completely free entity
whose independence must in no way be shaken and yet whose identity
remains one with you.
There is only one thing of great importance for you to consider at
this time. That is your personal preparation for service. You are to
serve your fellow man, and, therefore, it is necessary that you
prepare yourselves for this service. This of course, my friends, is
done in meditation. We cannot overemphasize the importance of
meditation. Through this technique you will receive answers to all
of your questions. It is difficult to realize this, but this is
All of your questions can be reduced to an extremely simple
concept. This you can become aware of in meditation. Once this has
been done you will be ready to serve, just as others have served and
are now serving upon your planet. Follow their example; spend time
in meditation. Qualify yourself to reach out to your fellow man and
lead him from the darkness of confusion that he is experiencing back
into the light that he desires.
One service which the
Confederation sources greatly appreciate is
that provided by vocal channels which are trained in groups such as
the one which we have had in Louisville since 1962. They never
suggest in any way that their message is unique or that "salvation"
can only be gained by listening to that message. However, they are
aware that there are many who seek that message through sources
other than orthodox religion and classical philosophy. Consequently,
they are here to provide a service of making information available
and can only perform their service through vocal channels:
There are more people upon this planet seeking than there have been
in the past. However, many are quite confused in their attempts to
seek and there is a need at this time for many more channels such as
this one who can receive directly the thoughts that so many of the
people of this planet are seeking. We are attempting at this time to
generate greater numbers of proficient vocal channels who can
receive our thoughts quite readily. This requires daily meditation.
This is all that is required: daily meditation. It is assumed, of
course, that as this daily meditation is performed there is a desire
for our contact.
As one who has participated in meditation groups for many years, may
I suggest that individual meditations not include the attempt to
contact Confederation sources. It is best to pursue this attempt
only in a group situation, preferably a group which contains at
least one experienced receiver. And always, whether meditating alone
or in a group, I strongly recommend some means of "tuning" so that
the meditation which follows will be ’at the highest spiritual level
possible.' This "tuning" can be accomplished in anyway preferable to
the meditator. The Lord’s Prayer, "Aum-ing" or other singing or
chanting, the reading of some inspirational writing, or a careful
visualization of the "white light" of the Creator, are all useful
Reincarnation is very basic to the
Confederation message. One of the
most highly regarded fruits of the meditation and seeking process is
the ability of the seeker to penetrate what Ra calls the "forgetting
process" which occurs at the time of our birth into this incarnation
so that we might become aware of the lessons which we have to learn
during this incarnation. These lessons are always along the lines of
how to love better, more fully, more deeply, or with more kindness
and understanding. However, each entity has unique lessons:
At the time at which each of you
incarnated, my friends, each of you
was aware that certain lessons, hitherto unlearned, were to be the
goals for achievement in this incarnation. If it seems to you that
your entire incarnation within this illusion has been a series of
difficulties of one particular type, then you are almost certainly
aware in some manner of one of your lessons. As you can see, these
lessons are not to be avoided. They are to be learned.
Further, we must point out to you that when a confrontation in such
a lesson has been achieved, that which separates you from
understanding is most often your own thinking. Your conscious
thinking processes are quite capable of being self-destructive in
the sense that they may aid you to avoid the lesson that you wish in
reality to learn. Therefore, as you approach a lesson, we suggest
that if it is possible to achieve a temporary abeyance of the
conscious, analytical processes, then you may return to the problem
with a much clearer mentality, ready to learn what you came to this
experience to learn, rather than only to avoid what you came to
We know how difficult it is to achieve the meditative state at all
times, for we have been where you are and we are aware of that
particular type of illusion that you call physical. We urge you,
therefore, to depend on meditation of a formal kind, then to attempt
a semi-meditative state at all times, and, by this, we mean simply
to achieve a state of attention so that your destructive impulses
are not free to clog your mind completely and keep you from learning
the lessons you came to learn.
Under-girding all of the lessons that we have to learn about love is
the basic concept that all things are one:
Meditate upon the complete unity of yourself and all that you see.
Do this not once, and not simply in present circumstances, but at
all times, and especially in difficult circumstances. For insofar as
you love and feel at one with those things which are difficult for
you, to that extent will those circumstances be alleviated. This is
not due to any laws within our physical illusion, but is due to the
Law of Love, for that body which is of spirit, which is
interpenetrated with the physical body, is higher than your physical
body, and those changes which you make by love upon your spiritual
body will, of necessity, reflect themselves within the physical
All is one, my friends. My voice is now the voice of this
instrument; my thoughts are her thoughts. Please believe that the
vibration we offer to you is not a vibration of personality, but is
a vibration of the Creator. We are also channels. There is only one
voice. Within this vibration, we are self-consciously aware that
this voice is the voice of the Creator. It is simply a matter of
lifting vibrations which are not so self-aware of the Creator. All
things will eventually come into harmony in relation to your
Even if the universe for those around you remains disharmonious and
difficult, if your mind is stayed upon the unity of the Creator,
your own universe will become harmonious, and this is not by your
doing but by the simple love of the Creator.
From many sources we have heard that we are in the last days of a
particular era of evolution. Popular writers of the Christian faith
have taken the writings of the Book of Revelations and analyzed them
in such a way that it is suggested that the days of Armageddon are
near at hand. Scientists have written many books exploring the
possibility that unusual planetary configurations such as the
Jupiter Effect will occur now and in the year 2,000, thus enlarging
the possibility for Earth changes.
Other scientists have examined
much evidence indicating that a polar shift by the year 2,000 is
probable. Prophets such as
Edgar Cayce have channeled information
having to do with such drastic changes occurring and in addition, of
course, there are our many concerns having strictly to do with the
man-made potential for planetary devastation. We also have gathered
information in our meetings on the subject of Earth changes:
There is a season upon your planet which shall be highly traumatic
within your physical illusion. The physical reasons for this are
varied. Your scientists will spend a great deal of time, while they
can, in attempting to catalog and describe each of the conditions
which will produce disaster on this physical plane of your planet.
That which your scientists speak of is quite so, and will be part of
the program which has been predicted by all of those holy works
which you have upon the face of the Earth.
It is not either permissible or possible for us to tell you
precisely what events will occur, or when they will occur, due to
the fact that the vibration within the mind and heart of the peoples
upon your planet is determining and will determine the precise
events. There is within the planet Earth a great deal of karma which
must be adjusted as the cycle changes, and these things will
Precisely when, and how, we cannot say, nor would we wish
to, my friends. For the rain, and the wind, and fire, will destroy
only those things which are in what you call the third density of
vibration. You may value those things because you cannot imagine
what a fourth-density existence will be like. We suggest to you that
you spend no time concerning yourselves with the effort of
maintaining your third density existence after the vibration change
to fourth density has been completed.
If, within your spirit, your graduation day has come, those things
necessary for your emergence into fourth density will be done for
you. All will be accomplished by helpers which you must be aware
that you have.
It is extremely possible that damage will occur to those things
which you identify with yourself in the third density. If we may
speak plainly, you will observe the valley of the shadow of death.
These very words, my friends, have been spoken to you before, and
yet you cling to that physical body and those physical surroundings
as though your spirit were attached quite permanently to them.
May we suggest to you that you can find your spirit neither in your
head, nor in your hands, nor in your chest, nor in your legs, nor in
your feet, that nowhere can you find your spirit; nowhere can you
operate to remove it, nor to aid it. Your spirit resides within a
shell. The shell may be removed, but that is no matter. The spirit
does not perish.
What is the metaphysical meaning of this suggested
of our planet? The Confederation suggests that the
planet itself is
moving into a new vibration, a new portion of space and
many have called the New Age, but into which we shall not be able to
enter unless we have indeed learned the lessons of love which it has
been our choice to learn or not to learn for many incarnations.
Therefore the Confederation suggests that it is very important to
choose to follow the positive path or not to follow it:
There is a choice to be made very shortly, and it would be
preferable if all of the people of this planet understand the choice
that is to be made. It will be difficult for many of the people of
this planet to understand what this choice is, because it is a
choice that they have not considered. They have been much too
involved in their daily activities and their confusion and their
desires of a very trivial nature to be concerned with an
understanding of the choice that they are very shortly to make.
Whether they wish to or not, whether they understand it or not,
regardless of any influence, each and every one of the people who
dwell upon planet Earth will shortly make a choice. There will be no
middle area. There will be those who choose to follow the path of
love and light and those who choose otherwise.
This choice will not be made by saying,
’I choose the path of love
and light,’ or ’I do not choose it.’ The verbal choice will mean
nothing. This choice will be measured by the individual’s
demonstration of his choice. This demonstration will be very easy
for us of the Confederation of Planets in His Service to interpret.
This choice is measured by what we term the vibratory rate of the
individual. It is necessary, if an individual is to join those who
make the choice of love and understanding, for his rate of vibration
to be above a certain minimal level.
There are many now that are
close to this minimum level, but due to continuing conditions of
erroneous thought that prevail upon your surface, they are either
fluctuating around this point or are even in some cases drifting
away from the path of love and understanding. There are many whose
vibratory rate at this time is sufficiently high for them to travel
with no difficulty into the density of vibration that this planet is
shortly to experience.
At some time in the future, then, something that the
has called the harvest will take place. This concept of the
Day differs from the eschatological one in that the one who judges
us is not a God apart from us but the God within us. As a result
of this harvest some will go on to a new age of love and light and
will learn new lessons in a very positive and beautiful density, as
the Confederation calls it.
Others will have to repeat this
particular grade of lessons and relearn the lessons of love. Here
the Confederation entity, Hatonn, speaks once again of the
and of the Confederation’s purpose in speaking through
There is going to be a
Harvest, as you might call it, a harvest of
souls that will shortly occur upon your planet. We are attempting to
extract the greatest possible harvest from this planet. This is our
mission, for we are the Harvesters.
In order to be most efficient, we are attempting to create first a
state of seeking among the people of this planet who desire to seek.
This would be those who are close to the acceptable level of
vibration. Those above this level are of course not of as great an
interest to us since they have, you might say, already made the
grade. Those far below this level, unfortunately, cannot be helped
by us at this time. We are attempting at this time to increase by a
relatively small percentage the number who will be harvested into
the path of love and understanding.
Even a small percentage of those who dwell upon your planet is a
vast number, and this is our mission, to act through groups such as
this one in order to disseminate information in such a fashion that
it may be accepted or rejected, that it may be in a state lacking
what the people of your planet choose to call proof.
We offer them no concrete proof, as they have a way of expressing
it. We offer them Truth. This is an important function of our
mission-to offer Truth without proof. In this way, the motivation
will, in each and every case, come from within the individual. In
this way, the individual vibratory rate will be increased. An
offering of proof or an impressing of this Truth upon an individual
in such a way that he would be forced to accept it would have no
usable effect upon his vibratory rate.
This, then, my friends, is the mystery of our way of approaching
Another concept that has come out of the many communications from
alleged UFO entities is that of "Wanderers." They are usually
service-oriented people, and, as would be predictable, they often
have a great deal of difficulty fitting into the planetary
vibrations of Earth. Often they have the feeling that they do not
fit in or do not belong but at the same time, very often, these
people are possessed of many gifts, in the arts, in teaching, or in
the simple sharing of a cheerful and happy vibration, which
certainly does not suggest the normal attitude of a simple
This concept is particularly interesting to many people who will be
drawn to The Ra Material because, according to that material, much
of it will be most easily recognized as being useful by Wanderers.
There are not just a few Wanderers on Earth today;
Ra suggests a
figure of approximately sixty-five million.
They have left other
densities in harmonious environments to take on a kind of job that
is most difficult and dangerous, for if a Wanderer cannot at least
begin to pierce the forgetting process that occurs at birth into
this density during his or her lifetime on planet Earth, and
remember the love and the light that the person was intended to
share, the Wanderer can conceivably become caught in the
third-density illusion, collecting what may loosely be termed as
karma, and be delayed in arriving again at the home planet until all
that is unbalanced in third density in this lifetime has been
When Don Elkins and I wrote Secrets of the UFO in 1976, we devoted a
chapter to the concept of Wanderers and used material gathered in
hypnotic regressions of three women who are friends in this lifetime
and who, when separately regressed, gave independent and dovetailing
stories of their lives on another planet.
