Ra’s Words of Wisdom
What we are dealing with is the Channel of Concentration. And the concentration, in a sense, aspects are derived from both the activations, but what it becomes is something else. This concentration is not sitting still. But keeping still is an aspect of concentration, but they are not the same thing. To be still doesn’t mean that one is necessarily concentrated at all. Show me somebody with the 52nd gate that does not have the 9th gate and I will show you somebody who, in sitting still, is not concentrated. They’re uncomfortable and irritated. It’s something else.
It’s the same thing about the 9th gate, this Taming Power of the Small, the potential that is fulfilled through detailed attention to all aspects. But that’s not concentration. That’s an energy potential. It isn’t necessarily focused, this Channel of Focus and Concentration, a Design of determination. We always think that the channel is the gates. If you ask people to describe a channel for you rather than dealing with the keynote and the Design of the channel and elaborating on that, they will talk gates. They’ll either describe it with the accent on one end of the system or the other end. But it’s the channel.
This is the format energy to concentrate. And of course, that concentrate is more than the intellectual concentration; we’re talking about an energy format, to concentrate things, to bring them closer together. And it is a determined energy. It builds momentum. You notice that when you first begin to have to study when you’re in school and you’re studying for some kind of examination. What you notice about that is that the concentration isn’t there until there is a point where somehow you’re lost in it. You get lost in it. Everything gets honed into what that determined focus is going to be. And this is an energy that’s driving the whole logical process, the whole pattern process.
