There is a wealth of data pointing to the fact that we are one, infinite being, interconnected with all things, at all stages of existence. See the posts Do we live in a Universe of Coincidence or Intent? and We Are ONE – Scientific proof for interconnectedness and Collective Evolution for more on this.
Here we are going to introduce the Law of One Series, and Ra, a channeled Being whose sole message in the 106 Sessions, is to convey the concept of Oneness to humanity.
Before we can get into how the Law of One and Pope Francis are connected I wanted to take the time to lay out some ground work in relation to the Law of One. Firstly the law of one is basic, we are all one. Almost deceptively basic some would say. In an infinite creation there can only be unity, many-ness(individuality/separation) is a finite concept. This isn’t to say we are not individuals, it is to say we are all connected beyond our individuality. An excerpt from the Law of One:
Ra: I am Ra. Consider, if you will, that the universe is infinite. This has yet to be proven or disproven, but we can assure you that there is no end to your selves, your understanding, what you would call your journey of seeking, or your perceptions of the creation.
That which is infinite cannot be many, for many-ness is a finite concept. To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity; otherwise, the term does not have any referent or meaning. In an Infinite Creator there is only unity. You have seen simple examples of unity. You have seen the prism which shows all colors stemming from the sunlight. This is a simplistic example of unity.
In truth there is no right or wrong. There is no polarity for all will be, as you would say, reconciled at some point in your dance through the mind/body/spirit complex which you amuse yourself by distorting in various ways at this time. This distortion is not in any case necessary. It is chosen by each of you as an alternative to understanding the complete unity of thought which binds all things. You are not speaking of similar or somewhat like entities or things. You are every thing, every being, every emotion, every event, every situation. You are unity. You are infinity. You are love/light, light/love. You are. This is the Law of One.
The Law of One challenges us to look at ourselves and the universe we live in in a different kind of way. A major point the Questioner and Ra talk about is how every being on this planet, from cellular/molecular life on up, is part of a vast evolutionary journey of consciousness. A type of Supreme Being, at the perspective of the culmination of all existence. Parts of the Creator/Creation become more and more aware of itself progressing through different stages.
At the end of this period (on February 24, 1209, according to Jordan of Giano), Francis heard a sermon that changed his life forever. The sermon was about Matthew 10:9, in which Christ tells his followers they should go forth and proclaim that the Kingdom of Heaven was upon them, that they should take no money with them, nor even a walking stick or shoes for the road. Francis was inspired to devote himself to a life of poverty.
Clad in a rough garment, barefoot, and, after the Gospel precept, without staff or scrip, he began to preach repentance. He was soon joined by his first follower, a prominent fellow townsman, the jurist Bernardo di Quintavalle, who contributed all that he had to the work. Within a year Francis had eleven followers. Francis chose never to be ordained a priest and the community lived as “lesser brothers,” fratres minores in Latin. The brothers lived a simple life in the deserted lazar house of Rivo Torto near Assisi; but they spent much of their time wandering through the mountainous districts of Umbria, always cheerful and full of songs, yet making a deep impression upon their hearers by their earnest exhortations.
Francis’ preaching to ordinary people was unusual since he had no license to do so. In 1209 he composed a simple rule for his followers (“friars”), (the Regula primitiva or “Primitive Rule”) which came from verses in the Bible. The rule was “To follow the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ and to walk in his footsteps.” In 1209, Francis led his first eleven followers to Rome to seek permission from Pope Innocent III to found a new religious Order. Upon entry to Rome, the brothers encountered Bishop Guido of Assisi, who had in his company Giovanni di San Paolo, the Cardinal Bishop of Sabina. The Cardinal, who was the confessor of Pope Innocent III, was immediately sympathetic to Francis and agreed to represent Francis to the pope. Reluctantly, Pope Innocent agreed to meet with Francis and the brothers the next day. After several days, the pope agreed to admit the group informally, adding that when God increased the group in grace and number, they could return for an official admittance. The group was tonsured. This was important in part because it recognized Church authority and prevented his following from possible accusations of heresy, as had happened to the Waldensians decades earlier.
Though Pope Innocent initially had his doubts, following a dream in which he saw Francis holding up the Basilica of St. John Lateran (the cathedral of Rome, thus the ‘home church’ of all Christendom), he decided to endorse Francis’ Order. This occurred, according to tradition, on April 16, 1210, and constituted the official founding of the Franciscan Order. The group, then the “Lesser Brothers” (Friars Minor or Franciscan Order), preached on the streets and had no possessions. They were centered in Porziuncola, and preached first in Umbria, before expanding throughout Italy.
The relevance that I see here is that on 13 March 2013, upon his election as Pope, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina chose Francis as his papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, becoming Pope Francis.
Bergoglio, 76, became the first pontiff from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than a millennium. He chose the name Francis, associating himself with the humble 13th-century Italian preacher who lived a life of poverty.
The longtime archbishop of Buenos Aires, Bergoglio is the son of middle-class Italian immigrants and is known as a humble man who denied himself the luxuries that previous Buenos Aires cardinals enjoyed.
Throughout his life, both as an individual and a religious leader, Bergoglio has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths.
He is known for having a simpler and less formal approach to the papacy, most notably by choosing to reside in the Domus Sanctae Marthae guesthouse rather than the papal apartments of the Apostolic Palace formerly used by his predecessors. In addition, he is known for favoring simpler vestments void of ornamentation, by starting to refuse the traditional papal mozzetta cape upon his election.
Pope Francis has taken the Catholic view opposing abortion, contraception and homosexuality. He said that while homosexual acts were sinful, the homosexual orientation was not. He favoured a wider active role for women in the Church, but maintained against the ordination of women into the Catholic priesthood.
In addition, Pope Francis said that it was necessary to listen to young people, and admired their non-conformism in abandoning traditional values.
So it seems as though you could say that this new Pope is bringing forth the spirit of what Saint Francis stood for into the Vatican.
As is going to be detailed in this excerpt from the Law of One, Saint Francis, after leaving his incarnate self, in a sense ‘graduated’ from this sphere(Earth) and was able to join others of another realm. Experiencing what we would call an ascension.
Ra: I am Ra. I am assuming that you intend to query regarding the number of incarnate mind/body/spirit complexes at the end of the second major cycle, this number being approximately three four five, oh oh oh, three hundred forty-five thousand [345,000] entities.
Ra: I am Ra. There were approximately one hundred fifty  entities harvestable.
Ra: I am Ra. These entities were visited by the Confederation and became desirous of remaining in order to aid the planetary consciousness. This is correct.
Ra: I am Ra. A light being appeared bearing that which may be called a shield of light. It spoke of the oneness and infinity of all creation and of those things which await those ready for harvest. It described in golden words the beauties of love as lived. It then allowed a telepathic linkage to progressively show those who were interested the plight of third density when seen as a planetary complex. It then left.
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. As a group they stayed. There were those peripherally associated with this culture which did not stay. However, they were not able to be harvested either and so, beginning at the very highest, shall we say, of the sub-octaves of third density, repeated this density. Many of those who have been of a loving nature are not Wanderers but those of this particular origin of second cycle.
Ra: I am Ra. The entities repeating the third-density major cycle have, in some few cases, been able to leave. These entities have chosen to join their brothers and sisters, as you would call these entities.
Ra: I am Ra. The one known as sound vibration complex, Saint Augustine, is of such a nature. The one known as Saint Teresa of such a nature. The one known as Saint Francis of Assisi of such nature. These entities, being of monastic background, as you would call it, found incarnation in the same type of ambiance appropriate for further learning.
Therefore, Pope Francis and his potential culling of evil, which may happen this Fall, detailed here Pope ‘Ruler of the World’ to go after War Criminals?, could be seen in a different light.
This could all be deception, who is to say what actions or events will take place, to know the future is not our goal but to understand the moment and see the love within it is the goal of those wishing to better experience/understand the Law of One.
Saint Francis had this passage read from the Bible while he was passing:
Geneva Bible 1599
1 Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man: preserve me from the cruel man:
2 Which imagine evil things in their heart, and make war continually.
3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent: adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.
4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the cruel man, which purposeth to cause my steps to slide.
5 The proud have laid a snare for me, and spread a net with cords in my pathway, and set gins for me. Selah.
6 Therefore I said unto the Lord, Thou art my God: hear, O Lord, the voice of my prayers.
7 O Lord God the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Let not the wicked have his desire, O Lord; perform not his wicked thought, lest they be proud. Selah.
9 As for the chief of them that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips come upon them.
10 Let coals fall upon them: let him cast them into the fire, and into the deep pits that they rise not.
11 For the backbiter shall not be established upon the earth, evil shall hunt the cruel man to destruction.
12 I know that the Lord will avenge the afflicted, and judge the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall praise thy Name, and the just shall dwell in thy presence.
“Perform not his wicked thought“
Here is another excerpt from the Law of One on the importance of thought, if this sparks your interest I highly suggest you read more of the Law of One:
“Ra: All things, all of life, all of the creation is part of one original thought….
Let us for a moment consider thought. What is it, my friends, to take thought? Took you then thought today? What thoughts did you think today? What thoughts were part of the original thought today? In how many of your thoughts did the creation abide? Was love contained? And was service freely given?
You are not part of a material universe. You are part of a thought. You are dancing in a ballroom in which there is no material. You are dancing thoughts. You move your body, your mind, and your spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns for you have not completely grasped the concept that you are part of the original thought.”
