L/L Research News

Note about Don Elkins

by Jim McCarty

November 7, 2018

Dear Friends,

Today is the 34th anniversary of the death of Don Elkins, and recently it has come to my attention that the nature of his death, by his own hand, is a topic that usually is not openly discussed by people who love the Law of One. The topic of suicide, in general, seems to be an uncomfortable and stigmatized one, as it is often viewed as a failure on the part of the deceased to meet life’s challenges. Many people have a friend or family member that has left this illusion by that means, and it is very painful for those left behind. I am sure that people’s reticence to talk about Don’s death is largely based on love for him, for the Law of One, and for L/L Research. There may be a desire to guard the reputation of the Ra contact by avoiding conversations about Don’s mental illness and suicide. I can feel your love and support in this regard, and I thank you for your heartfelt concerns.

I want you to know that, despite our great sadness in losing Don, Carla and I maintained faith in the possibility that Don’s decline was the result of his undying dedication to others--namely to Carla--and to his life’s work. He was truly a beloved companion for Carla, and was my best friend for the time that I knew him. Carla and I always wished to honor his memory by acknowledging all parts of his journey including the nature of his death. The factors that one must consider when talking of how Don’s life came to an end are almost beyond most people’s ability to comprehend because they are multiple in nature and have probably been reproduced only in a handful of instances in Earth’s entire history, if at all.

It was 50 years ago this month that Don Elkins moved in with Carla L. Rueckert, and they immediately began the work of L/L Research by writing THE CRUCIFIXION OF ESMERELDA SWEETWATER, a supposed book of fiction. Actually this first book became quite prophetic in that about a dozen of the experiences in the book came true for us over the years that we were together. For example, when our negative friend of fifth density tried to misplace Carla's spirit in negative time/space Don asked Ra about the similarity of the storyline of this book and this potential misplacement of Carla's spirit and Ra said in 68.13-.14:

"Questioner: We have been speaking almost precisely of the portion of the Esmerelda Sweetwater book which we wrote having to do with Trostrick's misplacement of the space girl's mind/body/spirit complex. What is the significance of that work that we did with respect to our lives? It has been confusing to me for some time how that meshes in. Can you tell me that?

Ra: I am Ra. We scan each and find we may speak.

Questioner: Would you please do so now?

Ra: I am Ra. We confirm the following which is already, shall we say, supposed or hypothesized.

When the commitment was made between two of this group to work for the betterment of the planetary sphere, this commitment activated a possibility/probability vortex of some strength. The experience of generating this volume was unusual in that it was visualized as if watching the moving picture.

Time had become available in its present-moment form. The scenario of the volume went smoothly until the ending of the volume. You could not end the volume, and the ending was not visualized as the entire body of the material but was written or authored.

This is due to the action of free will in all of the creation. However, the volume contains a view of significant events, both symbolically and specifically, which you saw under the influence of the magnetic attraction which was released when the commitment was made and full memory of the dedication of this, what you may call, mission restored."

So I would like to thank the L/L Research family world-wide for supporting L/L Research for all these years with your love, your commitment to growth, your donations, and your continuing friendship. It is such a joy and a privilege to travel this path of seeking with each of you. Blessings on your journey as we all seek to bring each other home, and everyone else on Earth with us.

The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One

The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One is finally here! This book represents a brand new transcript produced from relistening to the original cassette recordings. Its mission is to provide, as best as possible, an exact transcript of the actual Ra contact audio with minimal edits in order to improve readability. The two volumes include:

  • The Q&As that were omitted from the original four books (later published in Book V) restored to their original place in the conversation.
  • The Q&A numbering sequence first implemented at
  • New Introduction, Foreword, Epilogue, and Photo Gallery.
  • Many new and wonderful footnotes.
  • Tobey’s Relistening Report.
  • Tarot images clarified with higher resolution.
  • An extraordinary new Index of 590 total terms from A–Z that organizes over 9,000 Q&As.

The books is available as a:

The roots of this book go back 14 years when Tobey Wheelock self-initiated the Relistening Project. By 2013, his Relistening Project had produced the Lightly Edited Version of the 106 sessions. As we describe in “How These Books Came to Be” and “Addendum to the Relistening Report” in the Ra Contact books, a new, very intensive round of editing was applied to the Lightly Edited Version to produce the Ra Contact text.

For the past 2.5 years, Jim, Gary, and Austin have, with the generous help of many volunteers, been working diligently to create these books. We are so elated that the day is finally here that we can share the work with the readership! We love The Ra Contact with all our hearts. We love you with all our hearts. And on behalf of L/L Research, we hope that these books may be of some small service to you.

With love/light,
Jim, Gary, Austin, and all who have contributed to this work

L/L’s first ever audiobook: Living the Law of One 101: The Choice

One of Jim’s passions the past two years has been recording (and in some instances, re-recording) all of L/L Research’s library to be published as audiobooks. It has been a long but enjoyable process learning about recording and producing audiobooks, and we can’t wait to share the rest of the L/L Research archive (including the Ra Contact). This will be the first of many. Keep an eye out in 2018 and beyond for more.

Living the Law of One 101: The Choice is available through You can receive the audiobook for free with a free Audible trial: Living the Law of One 101 Audiobook,

The Space Between Stories

Thanks to the co-sponsorship of Beatriz Gonzales and Jim McCarty, Gary and Austin had the opportunity to spend a week at the “Space Between Stories” workshop led by Charles Eisenstein at the Omega Institute. It was an extraordinary experience that was magical not in the generic sense of being special, but magical in the sense of being utterly magical. Other terms includes transformative, beautiful, and heart-opening.

Among its consequences, the experience helped to open their hearts more fully to the ongoing birth of fourth density. Gary’s account of that journey is available here.

The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible

Dear Law of One reader,

For some (many?) on the planet, the outer disharmony seems lately to be intensifying to new levels. I have heard of spiritual seekers significantly challenged by the circumstances and energies of this moment, grappling with anxiety, fear, loss of hope, and despair. I have not been exempt from these challenges.

I write now because in my own processes of meditation, seeking, and serving, I stumbled upon an author whose work has been - perhaps quite literally - an answer to a prayer. The work has struck me so profoundly that I am creating my first open letter to the community.

His name is Charles Eisenstein. He's authored several books and many essays, but I landed first upon his most recent masterpiece, a book titled The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible.

In time of great need, The More Beautiful World cut directly through the darkness surrounding my heart, locating that secret place where I keep the tender thread of hope hidden. And then it gave my hope life. And voice. And basis. And permission. His words and vision spoke to my pain of being alive and helped me to feel that it was okay to breathe again. I felt healed. And cried with relief.

Eisenstein speaks powerfully of a better world that's available within all of us, one that is taking root on planet Earth. In both broad and nuanced strokes, he describes the ending of an old story in order to make space for the birth of a new. He speaks to the profound uncertainty of this moment, its sometimes dreadful nature, and the necessity of traversing the distance between stories in naked unknowing. He encourages being receptive and open to the new birth, to listening to what we might call the promptings of spirit, and to holding a vision of love and empathy.

But he does so while being politically, worldly astute. A most unusual feat, as usually one gets only the political/economical/social perspective, or only the spiritual perspective. Rarely are they perfectly married. Rarely, as well, with such holistic and integral analysis of the world picture. It is not a metaphysics that reaches as deeply into the unknown as the Law of One; rather, it is about our lives at this particular time in this particular place, underpinned by a philosophy of real compassion, of asking the central question of what it is like to be you.

I find infinite value, meaning, and purpose in the Confederation's message - there is no end to the inspiration and guidance it has offered me. But no matter how it directs the eyes to the eternal, and lifts the vision above the trees, it cannot completely and/or competently address the circumstances on the ground, whether due to limitations of free will or ability. Consider Ra's admission of limitation here:

* * * * * * * * * *
...our social memory complex cannot effectually discern the distortions of the societal mind/body/spirit complex of your peoples. We wish now to fulfill our teach/learning honor/responsibility by answering what is asked. This only will suffice for we cannot plumb the depths of the distortion complexes which infect your peoples.
* * * * * * * * * *

Charles Eisenstein, however, can. And with what to me is absolutely monumental strength of intellect imbued with the depths of the heart's wisdom, he makes the greatest, best, most informed case I've ever seen for hope itself; in visionary fashion outlining a transition to a new world that looks remarkably, joyfully, tearfully like the transition the Confederation describes from third to fourth density. A new world that is birthed not by imposition of some external force, but by our efforts and our state of being here, on the ground, in this world. Not something we make happen, precisely, but something we open ourselves to happening - something that emerges as a manifestation of vibrating love without fear, acceptance without control, service without expectation of return.

It dovetails so beautifully with the Law of One. Among the various Law of One-congruent principles he speaks to:

  • How, as the Law of One indicates, "universal love freely given is more to be desired than principalities or even the rearrangement of peoples or political structures."

  • How all services are equal if done with presence, with the open heart.

  • How much of the work of what we would call the positive polarity happens behind the scenes.

  • How the universe works in ways that corroborate Ra's statement: "Consider, if you will, the path your life-experience complex has taken. Consider the coincidences and odd circumstances by which one thing flowed to the next. Consider this well."

  • How to navigate, potentially, the perennial issue of the balance between spirituality and activism, emphasizing the ascendency of beingness over doingness, without devaluing action in the world.

  • How self-work is, from the right vantage point, as Carla would often point out, world-work.

  • How what's needed is not necessarily a political/economic/social solution, but a spiritual one-opening ourselves to an entirely new story about who we are, and then giving it the space to emerge from the ground up.

  • As well as multiple chapters elaborating skillfully on 18.5 where Ra says:
    "The proper role of the entity is in this density to experience all things desired, to then analyze, understand, and accept these experiences, distilling from them the love/light within them. Nothing shall be overcome. That which is not needed falls away."

His is the visionary voice of a new, emerging paradigm, one described to us by Confederation sources as "love and understanding," where love is visible, where the thoughts, memories, and experiences of the individual are available to the whole, where "individual differences are pronounced although automatically harmonized by group consensus." Where a more beautiful world is a lived experience.

Whether your hope is a raging fire, a quiet slow burner, or a delicate ember tucked away in the secret recesses of your heart, this book may give it long-sought life and nourishment, guidance and inspiration. Hope's greatest life-support and meaning comes, of course, from our direct connection to the divine, but insofar as the illusion has any sway over our thinking, we are aided and strengthened by the voices of others speaking a new world into reality. You may find your soul put to words, and the purpose of your incarnation re-awakened and energized. I could not recommend this work more highly.

With love and light,
Gary Bean - Director, L/L Research
