Who is Ra? – Part 17: The Physical Body Enables Growth and Evolution – Part 1/2

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

The physical body’s necessary for our evolution into higher, more refined planes of consciousness, and we inhabit it so we can live comfortably in our density and learn lessons that are necessary for us to evolve.

As Ra will tell us here, our spirits exist independent of a body, but we can’t really evolve unless we incarnate in a physical (or non-physical) temple. Inhabiting a body is necessary while we learn, grow and progress, and without one, we’d miss out on essential lessons and experiences.

As Ra will also tell us, every density up to the eighth requires a body of some sort, but I’m sure our bodies become less physical and more etheric as we continue to evolve. When we reach a higher density, we lighten our vibration and refine our physical bodies, thus adjusting them to the next realm.

As badly as some seekers want to leave their body behind and explore the higher realms, they’re necessary for our evolution. Without them, we’d be stuck in the same place, wishing we could progress or evolve in some way.

Our evolution’s based on the progress we make from within our bodies, and personally, I’m grateful to be on this earth. Even though it offers a lot of pain, hardship and general negativity, I think we’re blessed to be here and I wouldn’t leave if I were paid to.

I plan to experience the higher realms (what some have called ‘heaven’) from right here on earth, and maybe some of you can agree.

According to Ra, the purpose of the physical body isn’t to speed up our evolution – it’s to enable it.

Question: “Was the physical body a device designed to accelerate the evolution of the mind?

“It is perhaps more accurate to note that the yellow-ray physical vehicle is a necessity without which the mind/body/spirit complex cannot pursue evolution at any pace. The mind/body/spirit complex has an existence independent of any physical vehicle.

“However, in order to evolve, change, learn and manifest the Creator, the physical vehicles appropriate to each density are necessary. Your question implied that physical vehicles accelerated growth. The more accurate description is that they permit growth.” (1)

They also tell us what’s required to grow into fourth density.

“The necessity for graduation to 4th density is an ability to use, welcome and enjoy a certain intensity of the white light of the One Infinite Creator.

“It’s a function of the intensity of the violet ray of the individual.” (2)

They then describe the fourth density to the best of their ability. Note that David Wilcock (and/or Bob Childers) compiled their description into a handy list.

“There are no appropriate words. We can only say what it is not and approximate what it is. Beyond 4th density our ability to describe the density grows more limited until we become without words.

  1. “It uses a type of bipedal body which is much denser in consciousness and more full of life. It does not use your heavy chemical vehicles or body.
  2. “4th density is not of words, unless chosen. One is aware of the thoughts and vibrations of otherselves.
  3. It is a plane of compassion and understanding of the sorrows of 3rd density.
  4. “It is a plane striving towards wisdom or light.
  5. “It is a plane wherein individual differences are pronounced although automatically harmonized by group consensus.
  6. “There is no disharmony within the self or within other peoples. It is not within the limits of possibility to cause disharmony in any way.
  7. “When sickness is present, it is easily healed.” (3)

Some seekers think that since Ra uses the term density instead of dimension, the fourth density is actually the fourth and fifth dimensions.

I used to think we’d have a choice between inhabiting a crystalline body in the fifth dimension and existing as pure energy or consciousness, but remaining in a body is apparently necessary as we traverse each density (again, up until the eighth, where we’ll merge with our creator).

As we’ve learned, the body’s necessary for us to grow – even in the higher densities. Our evolution doesn’t just depend on our willingness to learn the lessons we’re given in the lower and higher realms, but on our inhabitancy of a body as we learn them.

The body grows more refined as we reach lighter planes of consciousness, and the more we open our mind and heart, the higher of a density we’ll eventually reach. Each density comes with its own set of challenges, but if we’re motivated enough to progress, we’ll learn any lessons we face with ease.

Any destructive traits or tendencies that are hidden on earth will be revealed in fourth density, Ra tells us.

“The 4th density is one of revealed information. Selves are not hidden to self or other­selves. The imbalances or distortions which are of a destructive nature show in [more] obvious ways, the body acting as a machine resource for self revelation.

“Illnesses such as cancer are very amenable to self-healing once the mechanism of the destructive influence has been grasped by the individual.” (4)

Compassion’s necessary for a while, Ra tells us, but too much of it can cause an imbalance once we reach higher spheres.

“The 4th density abounds in compassion. This compassion is folly when seen through the eyes of wisdom. It is the salvation of 3rd density but creates a mismatch in the ultimate balance of the entity.” (5)

I think compassion’s important, and it’ll be especially important for those with inner wounds who’ll require compassion from the people around them when those wounds are made apparent. In my eyes, the best thing we can do is express compassion to one another – especially those who have difficulty navigating the lower vibrations.

Compassion will cause imbalance when we reach a density beyond the fourth, but for now, it’s an important aspect of our existence that the world couldn’t live without. I think we’re meant to show compassion to each other, and the sooner we can, the sooner we can come together and change everything about this planet that’s clearly in need of attention.

Those among us with fear and hatred in their hearts could open up to the love that permeates everything in existence if they could be shown some compassion and understanding, but we’ll have to be careful not to let others take advantage of our compassionate nature.
