Those who channel the entity known as Ra report that he has been 
involved in the affairs of our planet for the past 75,000 years. At 
certain points in our history, Ra claims to have manifested a physical 
body. Today, Ra says, he exists on a level of pure vibration. He 
communicates with the group consciousness through dreams, and with 
individuals through channeling.

The information in this article, in which Ra describes our evolution 
and coming planetary ascension, is paraphrased or quoted from 
channeled writings of a group who refer to themselves as L/L Research 
(please see Sources of Information on Ra).

The Origin of Ra long before the inception of life on this planet, Ra 
says, there were Third Density life forms on Venus similar to our 
human forms on Earth.

Through evolution, these life forms "ascended" beyond the Third 
Density and ultimately fused together into a unified complex which is 
the entity we now refer to as Ra. Ra identifies himself as a "social 
memory complex".

According to Ra, there are eight densities that all life must pass 
through, and in his present form, Ra exists on the Sixth Density.

The Earth, Ra claims, is presently at the end of a 75,000-year cycle 
where many humans will graduate from the Third Density to the Fourth 
Density by the process known as "ascension".

Ra's involvement in the History of Earth 75,000 years ago.

At that time, there were Third Density beings on Mars. Mars became 
uninhabitable due to war, and it was Ra who helped the Martian souls 
to transmigrate and reincarnate on Earth. He says that these were the 
first humans on our planet. Even today, according to Ra, 50 percent of 
the present population of Earth is of Martian descent, which explains 
our propensity for warlike activity.

58,000 years ago
Ra gave help to the civilization known as Mu.

11,000 years ago.
Ra describes how the Great Pyramid was built:
When one can speak to that intelligence [the intelligence within 
rock], the finite physical energy of the physical rock body is put 
into contact with the infinite energy which is resident in the more 
well-tuned higher bodies. With this connection made, a request may be 
given. The intelligence of infinite rock-ness communicates to its 
physical vehicle or body, and that splitting or moving which is 
desired is then carried out.[1]

The purpose of the pyramids, Ra says, was healing and initiation:
The chamber worked on the mind and body. The mind was affected by 
sensory deprivation and the reactions to being buried alive with no 
chance of extricating the self. The body was affected by both the 
configuration of the mind and by the electrical properties of the 
materials used.

7500 years ago
Ra took a physical body in South America. This was his last physical 
appearance on Earth.

The present
Ra continues to be involved with humans in dream work and through channeling.

The Origin of the Universe according to Ra:
The first known thing in creation is infinity. Then infinity becomes 
aware.  As the Creator decides to experience Itself, It manifests what 
we would perceive as outer space. As the Creator continues to 
experience Itself, It manifests free will and Love. ...

The action of free will upon Love creates manyness. Manyness first 
starts out as an outpouring of randomized creative force, which then 
creates patterns. The patterns of energy begin to regularize their own 
rhythms and fields, thus creating dimensions and universes. The 
galaxy, and all other material things, are the products of 
individualized portions of intelligent infinity. Each individualized 
portion of the One would become a Co-Creator and creates a universe.

Each universe would evolve with its own set of natural laws. Any 
portion of any universe, no matter how small, contains, as in a 
holographic picture, the one Creator which is infinity. Thus, all 
begins and ends in mystery.

The Eight Densities.
Ra says that all life must evolve through eight densities. 
It was you and I, he says, who created this Universe. Those are our 
stars we dream on.  We are the very same Infinite Intelligence that 
started it all way back when, and we are on a return path back to that 
selfsame Infinity ­ after which, we will recycle and start all over. 
Alpha and Omega, it never ends, as we cycle over and over through 
these eight densities. And it is always the action of free will on 
Love that propels our energies through the densities, creating the 
evolutionary movement.

Here's a brief review of what Ra claims are the stages of this 
multi-billion-year cycle:

1. First Density ­ 
The four alchemical elements of earth (minerals), air (wind), fire, 
and water. The fire and wind act on the minerals and water, propelling 
evolution to consciousness and the Second Density.

2. Second Density ­ 
The beginning of animals and plants. This stage of evolution on earth 
took 4.6 billion years.

3. Third Density ­ 
Humankind's current stage. This is the density of self-awareness and 
self-consciousness. The two fundamental necessities are rational 
thinking and intuitive thinking. Through applying both those 
qualities, we're supposed to figure out that we're part of each other, 
which leads to the experience of Love.

Interestingly enough, the purpose of having a physical body that grows 
weak with age, according to Ra, was to move us toward compassion and 
caring, as we watch each other's bodies deteriorating. Once we learn 
this quality of Love, we then move on to the higher densities, where 
our incarnations are considerably longer.

The cycle for all incarnations in the Third Density, Ra says, is 75,000 years.

4. Fourth Density ­ 
Perceiving others as part of the Self. Here is a plane of compassion, 
where we achieve the ability to understand the sorrows of the Third 
Density. Individual differences are still pronounced, but harmony is 
created through group consensus, because people know what others are thinking.

As the Fourth Dimension evolves, the group of mind/body/spirit 
complexes (i e. people) become able to form a "social memory 
complex", where all experiences of each entity are available to the whole.

The typical time for one incarnation in the Fourth Density is 90,000 
years, and the entire cycle of experience for all incarnations in this 
density takes 30 million Earth years.

5. Fifth Density ­ 
Wisdom and instant manifestation. The lessons of compassion learned in 
the Fourth Density have led to wisdom in the Fifth. Fifth Density 
entities may dissolve one manifestation and create another at will.

6. Sixth Density ­ 
The experience of the Self as Light. Ra is a Sixth Density entity.

This cycle of experience is 2.5 million years.

7. Seventh Density 
­ Culmination. The Seventh Density is the completed being "the 
Creator who knows Itself and compacts into the One Creation once 
again, as it readies to enter the Eighth Density".

8. Eighth Density ­ 
Return to infinity. According to Ra, there is a mystery here, which 
cannot be put into words. Just as in the musical scale, the Eighth 
Density is also the First Density of the next octave.

Since each entity has free will, the time lines given above are 
flexible. No entities can be forced to move up the density ladder 
until they are ready and have chosen to do so.

Higher-density entities, on the Sixth level and beyond, can serve as 
the Higher Selves for lower-dimensional entities. Sometimes we refer 
to them as Spirit Guides.

There is an incomprehensible majesty to the whole scenario. Here we 
are in the Third Density, with bodies made up of First and Second 
Density materials from our ancient past, with a High Self that 
represents the future self ­ what we will grow into.[2]

A Wanderer is an entity who has made the conscious decision to 
reincarnate into the Third Density of Earth from a higher density, in 
order to assist in the raising of consciousness on the Earth plane. Ra 
says that there are 65 million Wanderers currently on Earth.

When the choice is made to be a Wanderer on Earth, the entity knows 
that it will forget its original origin once it incarnates and 
subjects itself to the dangers of getting trapped here.

The challenge and danger to the Wanderer is that it will become 
karmically involved and thus be swept into the maelstrom and 
turbulence which it intended to avert.

If Wanderers can penetrate their "forgetting", they have the ability 
to greatly accelerate consciousness on this plane. Unawakened 
Wanderers tend to have feelings of alienation because of the chasm 
between the density of their origins and the density on the planet. 
They often exhibit allergies.

We can speculate that many readers of this article may fall into the 
category of Wanderers, as might people who suffer from such New Age 
maladies as Epstein Barr's and chronic fatigue ­ people who have a 
difficult time reconciling their higher-density existence with the 
Third Density.

The Law of One.
There is no right or wrong. There is no polarity. 

According to Ra:
The belief in polarity is chosen instead of understanding the complete 
unity of thought that binds all things together. You are everything ­ 
every being, every emotion, and every situation. You are unity. You 
are infinity. You are Love, Light. You are. The Law of One says all 
things are one Creator. Thus, seeking the Creator is done not just in 
meditation and in the work of the adept, but in the experience of 
every moment. In each infinitesimal part of yourself resides the One 
in all its power.

Space/Time v. Time/Space 
Ra makes an interesting differentiation between space/time and time/space.

Space/time, he says, describes our waking experience of third 
dimensional life, whereas time/space describes how we experience 
ourselves in between lives. So the process of incarnation involves a 
transition from time/space to space/time.

In space/time, we have control over space, in that we can move our 
bodies freely from one place to another. But in space/time we 
experience time as a relative, linear phenomenon over which we have no 

In time/space, Ra says, "each entity is located in a somewhat immobile 
state in space" and has the experience of all lifetimes as if they 
were occurring at the same time:

In space/time, it is not possible to determine the course of events 
beyond the incarnation, but only to correct present imbalances. In 
time/space, on the other hand, it is not possible to correct any 
imbalanced actions but rather to perceive the imbalances and thusly 
forgive the self for that which is.

The advantage of time/space is the fluidity of the overview. The 
advantage of space/time is that, working in darkness, with just a tiny 
candle, one may correct the imbalances.

Eventually, after many lifetimes, an entity in space/time will gain a 
conscious awareness of its existence in time/space, and then may play 
a more active, participatory role in its evolution.

Intuition, inspiration, psychic ability, and tantric sex, according to 
Ra, all serve to bridge the chasm between space/time and time/space. 
But there is no fixed dividing line. In space/time there are people 
with extraordinary psychic abilities who can tap into the time/space 
world and communicate with beings on the other side. And beings in 
time/space can manifest in space/time as what we call "ghosts".

Time/space is no more homogeneous than space/time. It is as complex 
and complete a system of illusions, dances, and patterns as is 
space/time, and has as structured a system of what you would call 
Natural Laws. Every planet with Third Density entities has a 
corresponding time/space.

The Veil of Forgetfulness 
Why can't we remember our previous lives?

It is only within the Third Density evolutionary process that the Veil 
of Forgetfulness exists. If there were no potential for 
misunderstanding, there would be no experience. It is necessary for 
the Third Density entity to forget where it comes from so that the 
mechanism of confusion or free will may operate upon the newly 
individuated consciousness complex.

So, apparently, the need to make choices without conscious 
understanding of all the ramifications is a necessary evolutionary 
step in the growth of an entity. In other words, we need to learn 
"faith".  If there were no Veil of Forgetfulness, then one would 
always understand the ramifications of one's choices, and Life would 
be entirely predictable. In a predictable system, free will cannot exist.

The Coming Ascension According to Ra, our planet is coming to the end 
of its 75,000-year Third Density cycle. The year 2011 is when that 
cycle is projected to end.

Since not everyone on the planet is ready to move into the Fourth 
Density, however (when Ra moved into the Fourth Density, only 20 
percent of the Venusian population was ready), the remaining Third 
Density entities reincarnate on a different Third Density planet.

Ra says that to be eligible for graduation (or "harvesting") into 
the Fourth Density, we must have a 51 percent orientation towards 
service to others. We do not have to understand the Law of One or have 
esoteric, metaphysical knowledge in order to ascend.

Part of this ascension process, Ra says, will involve the temporary 
end of all life forms on planet Earth while the planet is readied for 
its new Fourth-Dimensional inhabitants.

At this time, entities who need additional Third-Dimensional 
experience will find themselves on a different planet, where they may 
unfold their karma. And those who "graduate" will reincarnate on the 
New Earth.

Closing Thoughts. 
Of course, we do not present Ra's commentary as fact. There is no way 
of knowing whether all this is true, or whether the prophesied coming 
shift will actually happen. But whether we take imminent ascension as 
truth or myth, the death of our physical bodies is inevitable for all 
of us, sooner or later. And, practically speaking, whether or not Ra's 
description of the coming ascension actually happens or not, if we 
were to do those things that would ensure our best positioning for 
such an event, that would certainly increase the quality of our lives 
and life on this planet.

So what seems important is not to anticipate the future with fear, but 
rather to live each moment with an awareness of being part of everything.

Here are some closing thoughts from Ra to help us do that:
A Third Density entity can accelerate its growth much more while alive 
in a physical body than in between incarnations. If an entity chooses 
to accept responsibility for each moment of experience, then this 
empowers its progress.

Live from the heart, not from technique. We are all one. The 
fundamental teachings of all planes of existence are Unity, Love, 
Light, and Joy. The second-ranking lessons are in meditation and 

Contemplate the following:

1. Each moment contains love.

2. The Universe is one Being. When you view another, see the Creator.

3. Gaze within a mirror. See the Creator.

4. Gaze at the Creation which lies about the mind/body/spirit of each 
   entity. See the Creator.

5. The best way of service to others is to open the Self to others 
   without hesitation and radiate that which is the essence, or the heart.

6. Become aware of the other as being the same as yourself.

7. Accept all experiences, distilling from them the Light/Love within 
   them.  That which is not needed falls away.

8. The offering of Self to the Creator is the greatest service.
