How Maui Sufi Camp Has Served as a Glimpse
of the Fourth Density Consciousness…
Tuning to Universal Love and Compassion
By Kevin Cannella
The Fourth Density of Consciousness
Ra Material, transmitted through a group from L/L Re-search, describes
the evolution of consciousness in terms of densities corresponding to
the chakras. The first density (red-ray energy) is that of minerals and
water — there are only awareness and essentially “random” events based
upon physics and chemistry. The second density (orange-ray energy) is
that of the plant and animal kingdoms.
is awareness and also “movement towards light and growth,” manifesting
as a leaf striving towards the sunlight or a single-celled organism
interacting with its environment in such a way to remain alive and to
promote its own growth. The third density (yellow-ray energy) is that
of self-awareness, and the fourth density (green-ray energy) is of
universal love and compassion.
material also puts forth that Humankind and the Earth are moving from
the third density into the fourth. Currently in the third density, we
reach toward the fourth by learning lessons of love. This material is
offered as a framework through which we can perceive and understand our
Now, let’s switch topics for a moment.
Maui Sufi Camp
thirty-one years, a beautiful community has joined together for a
week-long camp on the island of Maui. The purpose of these gatherings
is to experience the Divine and to send vibrational frequencies of
peace to all beings. They are called Sufi Camps and they are held each
year in May and October. Thus far I have attended four camps.
Sufi path is experiential, and the camps reflect this. The Sufi path is
the path of the Heart, and the camps reflect this, too. From my
observation, the Dances of Universal Peace and “Zikr” are the central practices. The literal translation of the word Zikr means
“remembrance” — remembering that there exists no reality, except the
reality of love. These practices involve a group standing in a circle
with musicians in the center. Music is played. Songs are sung and
dances are led.
The dances are very simple, most
include the group holding hands and swaying gently in one direction.
Once or twice during each camp, these dances lead me to a sober,
ultra-ecstatic experience of the Divine, which I can only describe as a
feeling of infinite mercy and gratitude. Life changing? Certainly.
these dances as a focal point, the camp is augmented with meditation
and yoga in the mornings, the beauty of Maui, waterfalls, natural pool
swims, esoteric teachings, delicious organic food, and a truly
beautiful, accepting, loving sangha (community).
A Glimpse of the Fourth Density
upon the descriptions of the fourth density given by Ra, it seems Sufi
Camp has provided me and many others with glimpses — major glimpses —
of the fourth density of vibration; the density of universal love,
compassion and understanding.
experience of friendships and relationships is dramatically shifted. I
share a deep feeling of love, connectedness and intimate friendship
with many campers. I experience feeling intimacy with people whom I met
only a few days prior, and with whom I have barely spoken!
is love, being, peace and presence. There is also an awareness and
sense of wonder regarding the lack of conversation that has taken place
with this new friend whom I am now embracing.
is sharing and communion with one another in these love and peace
vibrations. The vibrations are consciously imbedded through song and
dance into the fabric of our beings, and of the space surrounding us.
casually ponder, “Do people know this is going on?” I have written this
so you may have some idea that it does go on. More so, I invite you to
join us consciously by calling in these new energies and pushing
forward into the fourth density.
