About the Instructor


James A. McCarty

Jim McCarty teaches the course Basic Principles of the Law of One for the International Metaphysical University. Jim is best known for his work as scribe for the seminal channeling contact that produced the Law of One books, otherwise known as The Ra Material. This course is based on the book Living the Law of One 101: The Choice, written by Jim's late wife Carla L. Rueckert.

Jim was born in 1947 in Kearney, Nebraska. After receiving an undergraduate degrees from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and an M.S. in Early Childhood Education from the University of Florida, Jim moved to a piece of wilderness in Marion County, Kentucky, to build his own log cabin in the woods and to develop a self-sufficient lifestyle. For the next six years, he was in almost complete retreat focused on spiritual development. During that time he founded the Rock Creek Research & Development Laboratories to further his teaching efforts. After exploration and experimentation, he decided to join Don Elkins and Carla Rueckert in Louisville, KY, and merge his Rock Creek Research & Development with their organization, L/L Research.

Jim has been in Louisville and with L/L Research ever since. He is currently its President and the sole surviving founding member. Jim continues to offer himself in his attempt to serve the Creator by living the Law of One.

Living the Law of One 101: The Choice

The textbook for this course is the book Living the Law of One 101: The Choice. Written with the intent of creating an entry-level, simple to read report concerning the core principles of the Law of One and Confederation philosophy in general, this book takes the reader through a discussion of Law of One principles such as unity, free will, love, light and polarity. It then works with the Confederation version of the concept that each person has an energy body with seven chakras. It discusses this concept and its implications for the seeker, chakra by chakra. It turns the player into a Player!

This is a light-hearted book about the Game of Life. It is an easy read, and yet the principles of the Law of One are not simplified. Rather, they are offered in an order which makes coherent sense. Principle builds upon principle to offer an overall view of Confederation philosophy which is a bit easier to grasp as a whole than the original Law of One books, where the question-and-answer format offers the same information in a somewhat fragmented form, although with endless interest.
