The Choice- The Choice Explored

Posted on July 23, 2011


“…each mind/body/spirit complex shall and should and, indeed, must perceive each archetype, if you use this convenient term, in its own way. Therefore, you may see that precision is not the goal; rather the quality of general concept complex perception is the goal.”- Ra, Session 77

The Choice

Arcanum 22

Fool: make a fool or dupe of; a person who lacks good judgment; jester employed to entertain a king or nobleman

Choice: consists of the mental process of thinking involved with the process of judging the merits of multiple options and selecting one of them for action.

 The galaxy and all other things of material of which you are aware are products of individualized portions of intelligent infinity. As each exploration began, it, in turn, found its focus and became co-Creator. Using intelligent infinity each portion created an universe and allowing the rhythms of free choice to flow, playing with the infinite spectrum of possibilities, each individualized portion channeled the love/light into what you might call intelligent energy, thus creating the so-called Natural Laws of any particular universe.

 Each universe, in turn, individualized to a focus becoming, in turn, co-Creator and allowing further diversity, thus creating further intelligent energies regularizing or causing Natural Laws to appear in the vibrational patterns of what you would call a solar system. Thus, each solar system has its own, shall we say, local coordinate system of illusory Natural Laws. It shall be understood that any portion, no matter how small, of any density or illusory pattern contains, as in an holographic picture, the One Creator which is infinity. Thus all begins and ends in mystery.”     -Ra, Session 13


 What is the choice?

 “The one great breakthrough which was made after our work in third density was done was the proper emphasis given to the Arcanum Number Twenty-Two which we have called The Choice. In our own experience we were aware that such an unifying archetype existed but did not give that archetype the proper complex of concepts in order to most efficaciously use that archetype in order to promote our evolution.”-Ra Session 88


“… in the use of the system known to you as the tarot for advancing the spiritual evolution of the self a proper understanding, if we may use this misnomer, of Archetype Twenty-Two is greatly helpful in sharpening the basic view of the Significator of Mind, Body, and Spirit and, further, throws into starker relief the Transformation and Great Way of Mind, Body, and Spirit complexes.” -Ra Session 89


It should be noted, carefully pondered, and accepted, that the Law of One is available to any social memory complex which has decided to strive together for any seeking of purpose, be it service to others or service to self. The laws, which are the primal distortions of the Law of One, then are placed into operation and the illusion of space/time is used as a medium for the development of the results of those choices freely made. Thus all entities learn, no matter what they seek. All learn the same, some rapidly, some slowly.”- Ra, Session 7


 “The Higher Self aspect is aware of the lessons learned through the sixth-density. The progress rate is fairly well understood. The choices which must be made to achieve the Higher Self as it is are in the provenance of the mind/body/spirit complex itself. 

Thus 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.”  – Ra, Session 36

 “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 distortion.”  – Ra, Session 66


My two (sense) cents

Whether we are keen to it or not, we are always creating our experience and that which is being observed is a product of the choice of will. Much like our figure, our feet are locked in the present moment yet pointed in the direction of the unmanifest or future events. We a privy to only the information we have learned up until this moment (past events and present configuration of events), but oblivious to what will happen about 3-4 seconds before it will occur (And I mean like immediately occurring creation of life experience being created moment to moment). Too much past, no water; too much future, you drown. Or din din for crocky.

And so we have a choice. We can decide, breath to breath, who and what face we want to show and what show we want to see.

IMHO, the eclipsing sun and moon symbolism reminds me of the union of two spheres the poles of the spirit: the spirit of the self (moon) where it is, doing its best to reflect the light of the sun (creator) in whatever configuration it is in at the moment and the sun itself, shining down unconditional love and light to the present self, guiding and nourishing. Perhaps it suggests that embedded within each choice is this union between the self and higher self like a contract between the two in agreement with each choice of experience.  Or something like that.

One thing I know for sure. However you see this card (or any card or any experience, thoughts or ideas for that matter), whatever meaning you read into it, that is what is most important for you to first identify and then try to understand. You could ask a million people to imagine a path and you would get a million different answers. And each of us will choose a path that is perfectly suited to us from our imagination. All of us can easily imagine a path, it is the same exercise when examining the tarot.

Take note of the sort of words you choose when describing what you experience in your life. What sort of things do you create for yourself in the present? When you do have to make a choice in your life, what should the proper or most efficient configuration of self be to ensure you have a wondrous and pleasant stroll through creation?
