He drew a circle that shut me out —
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!
So, my Beloved Guides, I’ve been reading and studying the material from the Ra Group that is called The Law of One. This is not child’s play. I’ve learned that we humans can be affected by unwanted negative energies. After my prayers in opening this meditation, I have asked all to leave who are not here for my highest purpose. Shall I do more?
You have appropriately sent them off with love. That is the teaching of the Law of One. To fall into the error of defending or fighting would be the energy needed for those negative energies to persist. By pouring love over them they are obligated to leave.
Interesting! When my brother, three years older than me, used to become a pest, mom had taught me to turn around and hug him. She told me to sneak a kiss if I could manage that. I never did. But it did work. He’d be gone.
The same core principle applies in both cases. Your brother left because he saw that he could not upset you. The game no longer interested him because he could not have the power over you that he sought. Likewise, the negative energies that attempt to distract, derail or divert your energy lose their power immediately when met with a love response. They leave immediately and without retaliation out of fear of being stripped of more power.
Since the act of being negative is to gain control, love diminishes the power as a candle to the dark. When negativity is met with love, as the Law of One states, Love wins. Both positive and negative energies must adhere to the Law of One. So naturally the response is to withdraw before losing massive amounts of power.
Am I protected by you when I say my prayer at the beginning of meditation?
You are protected by the principles within the Law of One. As explained, your response with love and kindness diminished the power to affect you. The Law of One is premised on the fact that there is universal interconnectedness of all beings, positive and negative. It matters not. All negative beings will eventually turn into positive entities through their evolutionary process. While in lower densities, these beings can instill negative influences on weaker beings. As their evolution progresses, negative entities (self-serving) will be transformed into positive energies (other-serving) .
What would a negative energy form do to me if I didn’t ask for protection and ask the negative (dark side) to disappear?
The attempt may be to cause you to lose interest in writing about the Light and Love that is channeled to this planet. Or, an attempt to convince you that you are sick and cannot write. The attack could be one that gives you a belief that you have arthritis in your hands so painful that it is impossible to write. It could be any devious means to have you believe that you cannot spread any of the Light or Love throughout the universe.
If I couldn’t write, I would still think it. What about that?
The strategy would be to manipulate you into thinking that you are wrong. Instilling self-doubt is a powerful weapon. Lowered self esteem is generally an attack on the positive entity to prevent further spreading of joy or happiness.
Are there negative energy forms that work through humans?
Negative entities work through manipulation. They will attempt to manipulate positive energies and may use negative humans to support their strategies. The Law of One is predicated on all humans having free will. Both positives and negatives must respect free will. Therefore, a human who is determined to serve only itself, as opposed to serving others, is negative and therefore a good candidate for manipulation. The light of a positive or a higher density form shines with brilliance. This brightness is very obvious to the negatives. They will engage in any tactics that could work to diminish self-esteem, confidence, or the health of a positive human or entity.
How do I know if I’m a positive or a negative?
If you are 51% on the side of wanting to serve others, you are a positive.
So it’s obvious that positives have negative thoughts and actions during their existence.
Yes, this is the reason it is very important that each human take the steps needed to know who they are. They must understand who they are in any given situation so that when they are feeling negative, they catch themselves in the act and can lovingly ask the negative entities to leave.
I heard someone speak about how tiring it is to listen to people who talk only about positive aspects of life. Does that mean they are a negative? This person called positive people “pollyannas”.
In order for humans to know who they are, positive and negative situations must be experienced. When humans are learning from each other, it does help to speak of the negatives so as to explain how the positive transformation occurred. Humans need to learn the importance of observing themselves and catching their negativity. Then it is simply a matter of turning to the light with Love and being positive. It is critically important for humans to observe and claim the negativity first – otherwise the change has less impact.
This comes down to this question for now, my Guides. When I doubt myself or think this is a bunch of malarkey, I need to recognize the source of this negativity. Is that correct?
This is correct.
I am suddenly very grateful for all the times my brother tried to be a pest. I will recognize the feelings and know that I simply ask them to leave in a spirit of love and respect. After all, we are all one. And they will evolve into positive eventually.
Thank you, very much for helping us bring a little more understanding to the Law of One. We thank you for choosing to walk in Light and Love with the knowledge of the All Oneness of the Entire Universe. We delight in the knowledge of the Creator’s Hand being exposed to those who may not otherwise consider the simplicity of transforming their lives into ones of great service to others.
The change in Markham’s literary significance has been tied to the development of modernist poetry and his steadfast refusal to change to meet the increasing demands arising with the appearance of poets such as Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, and William Carlos Williams. Their emphasis on changes in literary forms and their movement away from social commentary and political topics made much of what distinguished Markham’s verse dated. He gradually fell from critical favor, and his reputation never fully recovered.
Author’s Note: Was Markham’s mysticism under attack as per the teachings of the Law of One? He certainly shows a depth of understanding that would be shining brilliantly.
