      From a session on 12/12/2014:
       
      DianeHB: This is a question from Tex: "Whenever I put my attention on different people in our entity (C2/E1), it feels to me like the people in our entity have a lot of "weight." They seem to have this inherent ability to "get things done" with forcefulness. They also tend to hide this power behind a softness of the external personality in this life.   It almost feels like they could swing a sword in battle (and probably have in past lives). My question is, is this just my perception because I'm in the entity, or is this a bit of a characteristic of those in this entity?
       
      By the way, is Hilary Clinton actually in C2/E1? Tex suspects not because she doesn't have that "weightedness" to her.
       
      MEntity: It is a valid perception. It is a kind of quiet power, that if blocked can churn into a storm, with still waters that run deep. These phrases are valid in describing inherent and persistent qualities among members of that entity.
       
      Hillary Clinton is, in fact, of this entity. IF the "weight" is not perceived, it is likely because of public portrayals, not from valid characteristics. Another way that this quiet power shows up, other than as weight, is in reservation or redirection. In other words, the more evolved this use of power, the more it is controlled in a way that chooses its battles, and simply washes over obstacles that would otherwise have been washed away.
       
      DianeHB: Hmm, I thought I did that (choosing my battles) because of Flow, but I guess not all of it is.
       
      MEntity: Think of it this way: You do not choose your battles "because of flow," but that because you are learning to choose your battles, you use flow to support this. Flow does not cause you to do this. Flow becomes a tool for your actions, not a cause for them. The Goal describes how you funnel actions and what is generated from that, but the cause comes before that.
       
      MEntity: Think of another Goal, such as Acceptance. If you had Acceptance, you might use Acceptance as a means to navigate battles by accepting that not everything is actually a battle at all. If you had Discrimination, you might navigate by refining your choices and letting any unnecessary battles that do not serve you, but only distract you, to fall away. If you had Growth, you may take on every battle, but with an evolving capacity to only take the best from each. In truth, because you are in Flow, you can slide to any of these as a means of navigating battles, so every Goal's means of navigating battles might be familiar in some way. But, inherent in the nature of this entity is almost always a sense of navigating battles.
       
      DianeHB: That's true, I recognize all of these.
      DianeHB: Tex says that's the way our entity feels -- about navigating battles

      ASK MICHAEL - Live Channeling
      April 6, 2014
      Channel: Troy Tolley

      [Joeyann] How can you tell what I'm doing did the original Michael group set up the commune that they were talking
       
      [Joeyann] And reading transcripts from 1973 and 74 there are going to set up a commune and I'd like to know if that was completed
       
      [MEntity] The talk of communes was that of the channels ideals at the time, and not our own. We had, nor have, any intention for encouraging or "setting up" a commune. Communes are an ideal that is appealing to many, particularly of those shifting from Young to Mature and into Mature, but for the Old Soul, it can be "hell."
       
      [Joeyann] Thank you that is how I pictured it myself
       
      [MEntity] This is not to say that there are no Old Souls in communes, but many of these only pass through these as sanctuaries for healing and respite, but not as a long-term investment.
       
      [MEntity] Of course, we are speaking in terms of what is currently understood as a template for what a commune is. This template is based on the shift from Young to Mature. The older soul ideal for a commune would be quite different.
       

      [David_Wlk] Hello Michael... And on Michael communities in general... would you be able to speak about Michael communities into the potential future, choosing to gather in particular environs around the world, with a particular interest in Australia as a safe haven.
       
      [MEntity] Are you asking if there are Michael students in Australia who can gather?
       
      [MEntity] If not, please phrase a question.
       
      [David_Wlk] Not so much about now - But for gatherings of M students there, or elsewhere, in the future. And why...?
       
      [MEntity] In terms of future gatherings, and locations for gatherings, this is entirely up to the students. We do not direct these. We merely "show up" if invited.
       
      [David_Wlk] I'm interested in places of gathering - safe havens into the future...
       
      [MEntity] Anywhere that there are those who are not preoccupied with survival struggles would be ideal.
       
      [MEntity] There must be, at least, some sense of safety created and sustained among those who would gather. Location is secondary. Beyond the obvious places that might be dangerous, there are any number of locations that could be described as inherently stable and safe.
       
      [MEntity] If you are asking us to pick a place, we would not do so. We are not limited to location, and we prefer to leave the assessment of safety up to those who are directly experiencing the challenges and pleasures of the Physical Plane for arranging locations.
       

      [Juni] There is a fair amount of information about C1E7 about how it is the "sweetheart" entity.As time allows, what is characteristic about its counterpart, C2E7, along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity?
       
      [Juni] Please summarize or expand for what you think is most useful/informative/helpful.
       
      [MEntity] First, all Entity Sevens would have as their Positive Pole that of INCULCATION, and as a Negative Pole that of ECLECTICISM. The variation of Essence Roles in any given Entity then colors how those Poles are manifested among the members. While Cadre 1, Entity 7 is primarily Servers and Priests, with Artisans, Cadre 2, Entity 7 is primarily Priests and Servers, with Scholars. Those slight variations lend very different "flavors" or colors to each of those Entities.
       
      [MEntity] In general, those from Cadre 1, Entity 7 tend to dance a finer line between chaos and order, whereas those from Cadre 2, Entity 7 tend to dance a fine line between isolation and understanding.
       
      [MEntity] The Scholarly infusion among the members seems to bring about a great need to understand, to make sense, to KNOW, and if this is not the case, these members tend to recoil in isolation, observation, and distance.
       
      [MEntity] This means that the repetitive themes (inculcation) for most members of Cadre 2, Entity 7 are those that push through everything that is confusing, overwhelming, and disorienting. These members will keep repeating and repeating an experience, scenarior, relationship, lifetime, etc. until there is that understanding, that confidence is knowing.
       
      [MEntity] This may sound difficult, but it is the Positive Pole. It is how these members move toward expansion and evolution. It is a preferred path, despite its challenges.
       
      [MEntity] When in the Negative Pole, these members tend to feel fragmented and conflicted, divided among various facets of the life in a way that can sometimes feel fraudulent or as an imposter. This is Ecclecticism here.
       
      [MEntity] It is a process of learning that is piecemeal, so to speak. A little bit here; a little bit there, but nothing comprehensive.
       
      [MEntity] This means that this Entity has had its fair share of members having "gone crazy," or struggled with mental stability.
       
      [MEntity] This is not exclusive to this Entity, of course, but it is a pattern among the members.
       
      [MEntity] For that reason, we might consider describing this Entity as having a theme in SANITY.
       
      [MEntity] The delicate and often difficult maneuvering through lifetimes for these members can be as wild and as fun as they can be implosive and crushing.
       
       
      [Kurtis] Hi Michael, I just love this description of the Server Casting that I found you wrote:
       
      [Kurtis] Server Casting might show up as a default, keen awareness of the needs, feelings, and behavior of those around you, sometimes to the extent of distraction. It might show up as a sensitivity and kindness that wishes only the best for others, while being rather frustrated, or even infuriated, with those who are inconsiderate and disrespectful of boundaries. It might show up as being in a position among friends and family that is more often than not turned to for insight, help, nurturing, availability, and understanding.
       
      [Kurtis] This was your answer to one of Al’s questions a while back, and many have said these hold true who are Server Castings, so I was wondering if you could write the same format above, but for the Warrior Cast.
       
      [MEntity] Warrior Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of sincerity and authenticity in various experiences or people in the life. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who generate meaningful challenges to the Personality so that there is no sense of complacency or apathy. This attraction to those who might bring this honesty, authenticity, and challenge can mean that many fall short of the expectations of this fragment, and there may easily come a system of navigation that comes to be based on presumptions and prejudices. This, then, becomes a wall through which those who seek intimacy will have to "prove" themselves to the Warrior-Cast, even if that Warrior-Cast does not realize this is in place.
       
      [MEntity] This can bring about a rather dismissive stance from the Warrior-Cast that would, eventually, have to be addressed by that Warrior-Cast if the desire for authenticity and honesty outweighs the actual experience of it.
       
      [MEntity] The above is just one of many ways we can respond to such a question seeking elaboration, but this will suffice for now.
       

      [Bobby] I wanted to followup on the information that you provided Anna regarding her cat, George. For clarification purposes, were you saying that every cat "body" on the planet is experienced through a different Entity? If not, would you elaborate a little more on how that works? Before, I had just thought that a single Entity experienced through ALL cat bodies on the planet
       
      [MEntity] Bobby, while there is far more collective awareness among those who are participating in a non-sentient species, the higher the medium is in the tier of Kingdoms, the more individualized the consciousness involved. Domestic Cats and Dogs are of the Higher Mammal Kingdom, and are, therefore, quite a bit more fragmented in consciousness. Until there is full Sentience, however, that fragmentation still remains with full access to, say, "Cat Central" that is the field that sustains Felines.
       
      [Bobby] so cat central would be comprised of the individual Entities then?
       
      [MEntity] In a sense, yes. Let us offer the following as a means for clarification.
       
      [MEntity] In terms of moving through the 7 Kingdoms of a Physical Plane toward (potential) full fragmentation and Sentience in a particular species, it works much like this: Oceanic/Mineral Kingdom = Entire Design; Vegetation Kingdom = Energy Rings; Insect Kingdom = Cadres; Cold-blooded, Bird, and Lower Mammal Kingdoms are variations of Entities; Higher Mammal Kingdom is quite varied, but tends to be a single Entity or members of a single Entity.
       
      [MEntity] The higher the kingdom, the more attached to the individual bodies. The lower the kingdom, the more one acts as caretaker, or "deva" for an entire species or large group within the species.
       
      [MEntity] So "Cat Central" is more like an Akashic Records for that species to which those who are experiencing the species contribute.
       
      [MEntity] We often use the term "hive soul" for non-sentient incarnations because a body, group, or mountain can be "home" to a multitude of fragments/entities/cadres.
       
      [MEntity] So the Entity experiencing you through your cat is experiencing its entirely unique experience. It is not that your cat is simply one set of eyes among millions through which a crowd is experiencing.
       
      [MEntity] By the time there is the breakdown to incarnations as entities in a Kingdom, there is a cycle of lifetimes experienced with that particular species. For instance, an entity that is experiencing CAT, will have 7 Cat lifetimes. The incarnational cycle is 7 lifetimes for mammals.
       
      [MEntity] So there will be 7 as cat, 7 as dog, 7 as cow, 7 as pig, etc.
       
      [MEntity] Eventually, this movement of consciousness begins to fade for a planet and the multitude of species begin to die off.
       
      [MEntity] This is particularly true when there is little viable means for access to any other species as Sentient.
       
      [MEntity] If the Sentience of Gorillas can stabalize, more species will spring into Sentience for other Designs to follow. Otherwise, there may have to come an extinction of Humans, first.
       
      [Bobby] Ok, thanks. We'll definitely follow up on this with more specifics in the near future. I think it's fascinating.
       

      [Jana_K] Hello Michael, could you please talk about how Flow gets itself into positive poles through sliding to other Goals? Or how Flow can generally benefit from sliding to each of the different goals?
       
      [MEntity] Jana, Assimilative Overleaves almost always require the use of another Axis to move to its own Positive Pole. Though it is possible for the Neutral to move within itself, it is simply, nearly impossible. In the same way that any other Overleaf must tend toward the Positive Pole of its partner on an Axis as a way to return to its own, the Assimilative depends on this same process.
       
      [MEntity] Though the Assimilative Overleaves have access to the entire range of Overleaves in its category, habits do tend to form in regard to the particular challenges and interests that the Personality is developing for that lifetime. So one person's Flow may gravitate toward Growth as its means of return to a Positive Pole, and to the Inspiration Axis in general, while another may gravitate toward Acceptance, or the Expression Axis, as its means of return.
       
      [MEntity] In that regard, it is quite helpful for those in Flow to look at the life in terms of what may be a pattern for experiences at any given time. There will larger arcs and smaller arcs of experiences, so this would need to be considered, as well, but one can usually tell if the current emphasis is on a larger or smaller arc.
       
      [MEntity] So if your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with meaning, value, reflection and projection (inspiration), then your Flow would want to move to Growth or Re-evaluation as a means of return to Freedom. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with contribution, participation, effectiveness, and movement, then you would likely want to move your Flow to Dominance or Submission. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing struggles with making confident choices, blockages to intimacy, feeling present, and/or making a difference, then your Flow might want to move toward the Expression Axis as a means of return to its Positive Pole.
       
      [MEntity] The above are generic phrases to reference those Axes, and should not be considered definitive. We wished only to give examples for how one might assess where Flow may consciously or subconsciously move when in light of particular patterns in the life.
       
      [MEntity] The more consciously one can associate the patterns of the life with various key elements of an Axis, the more consciously one in Flow can then use the Positive Pole of one of those Goals to then help return to Flow's own Positive Pole.
       

      [Janet] Will you please provide information on Artisan Casting similar to what you just gave Kurtis for Warrior Casting?
       
      [MEntity] Artisan Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of integrity and self-awareness among those with whom this fragment shares experiences and relationships. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who are consistent in "who they are" and are quite clear in their motives. From what we have seen, it can often drive an Artisan-Cast fragment to infuriated tears when others are not cohesive in their sense of motivations or ideals. This means this Casting will tend to gravitate toward those who are quite comfortably-defined, but flexible, in where, how, and who one is as individual, but when this comes to be few and far between, the Artisan-Cast can start to simply make up backstories for all of the participants in the life as a means to bring that sense of consistency.
       
      [MEntity] What happens, then, can be a falling into paranoia, gossip, and over-analysis, particularly when that Artisan-Cast cannot seem to get his or her bearings on the motives or ideals of a person or project.
       
      [MEntity] Depending on the path of the Artisan-Cast, he or she may then gravitate toward challenging people and experiences that provoke discord, and then this Casting will figure out how to bring harmony.

      Hey everyone,
       
      I want to share something that may seem obvious to some of you but may be just the thing that helps snap someone out of the shock and depression resulting from this recent election.
       
      The American Presidential election threw me off in ways that I could never have known would affect me so deeply. Without realizing it, I found I could not pull myself up and out of this shock. I am not a pessimistic or depressed person, but I was spiralling, deeper and deeper into a darkness I have never felt in my life before and it scared me. I have never felt like this before. I've had some really rough experiences in my life, too, and never have I felt this claustrophobic anger, helplessness, and darkness. I tried so hard to make sense of it and to snap out of it and it would not go away. 
       
      In my most-recent visit to my Drx, I asked her if I should get a professional opinion and diagnosis for Depression. She asked me to describe my symptoms and as I went through them, she asked me if this was happening since the election. She said that she has yet to have a patient visit her since the election who has not described the same symptoms of anxiety and depression. She said that even she who is not prone to these things has the same symptoms of depression and anxiety and insomnia and even night terrors. She said she has never been awakened from deep sleep by anxiety in her life, but she has been struggling with this since the election.
       
      She explained to me that this "Trump Effect" has rocked the psychological and psychiatric community to the point that formal studies have been done and continue to be performed. She said that these studies are concluding that the symptoms that are so pervasive in those affected by the election are actually signs of strong mental health and high intelligence. She explained that the "Trump Effect" comes from the blow to our psyche when facing a barrage of lies, deceit, and false information that you can't process fast enough or do anything to counter. She said that if you feel depressed, anxious, and affected by this recent election then it means you are sane, intelligent, and stable. The symptoms are "good signs," even if they are overwhelming. 
       
      The depression, anxiety, overwhelm, etc. come as a result of suddenly losing all trust in your senses, in your ability to make sense of things, creating a huge wedge within yourself that spreads into an exhausting fracturing of the self. This is a known tactic of dictators and tyrants as a way to break down the security and stability of a society from the inside, out.
       
      For some reason, just knowing this helped tremendously. I felt a huge weight lifting and a sense of control coming back to me. It mattered to me to know that my symptoms indicated something healthy in me and not something broken. 
       
      Trump has turned reality on its head through lies, deceit, delusion, while mixed with very real threats and dangers to our well-being, and this has slammed up against our collective conscious and intelligence and sanity. The confusion and overwhelm, depression and anxiety, all come from trying to make sense of what will never make sense. 
       
      The solution is to surrender to the fact that this man is fucking insane... and you are not. Trust yourself. It's not your job to make sense of this insanity, but to go forward accepting that you are right. It's fucking insane. We have to deal with that, but we will never understand it or make sense of it, and we cannot lose our sense of trust in ourselves because that is the underpinning of security and stability in ourselves and society.
       
      It may seem silly, but knowing all of this lifted a huge weight of anxiety from me and helped me trust myself again when I had no idea I was being pitted against myself.
       
      It's a process, but it's helped tremendously in getting me out of my funk that was affecting my ability to channel for so long.
       
      I hope just knowing this seemingly obvious thing can help some of you.

      Ask Michael - March 5, 2017
       
      Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. ***QUEUE IS NOW OPEN***
       
      Yes, Brian.
       
      BrianW: Hi Michel! Could you please provide additional information on the primary shame for the Jovial body type and provide suggestions on how one might overcome the shame of "giving into the pleasures of life and the body"?
       
      Pleasure is one of what we refer to as a Natural Right inherent in existence. Pleasure is one of the primary motivations for incarnation and for progress through the high planes. The Jupiter Body Type is designed in a way that gravitates toward pleasure. It knows and trust pleasure, so much so that it recognizes this as a necessity, not a luxury.
       
      Pleasure is subjective and can range from the more blissfully complex of sexual pleasures and intimacy to the simplicities of a good nap and good meal.
       
      Pleasure is tied to the Moving/Higher Moving Centers and Humans have created a hierarchy of Centers that places Intellect at the top and Emotion below this, with the Moving Centers at the bottom.
       
      Class systems are built from this model of heirarchy.
       
      This spills into race and economic prejudices and even into slavery where the Moving Center is promoted as only useful if it is productive or reproductive.
       
      Religions began to tie the Moving Center to shame because the person who is being exploited should only show productivity, not pleasure.
       
      And so "everything" pleasurable was tied to sin, to being wrong, to being dangerous, and everything productive and reproductive were tied to praise, righteousness, and worth because this served oppression, not the soul.
       
      The Jovial Body knows this is a lie and that pleasure is a right, but because this body type is so quickly and easily receptive to pleasures, this Body Type can tend to respond by indulging in pleasure as an escape, or indulge in pleasures as a deep, dark and hidden secret facet.
       
      The Jovial Body Type can sometimes reject pleasure altogether, or indulge to a point of losing the point of the pleasure, but there comes a moment when this Body Type realizes that pleasure is one's personal right, not something that is up for discussion or debate.
       
      The way that this Body Type can help itself to overcome any shame is to realize and own that if one's personal pleasure is not harming the self or another, then it is yours to do with as you please.
       
      It is simply no other individual's or group's business.
       
      Embrace the joy of the pleasure and share in that joy. When it is criticized or shamed, recognize the absurdity and let that be the "problem" of the critical or shaming.
       
      We iterate: if the pleasure harms no one, it is yours. If there is harm involved, then it is not pleasure, no matter how good it feels.
       
      When we say "harm" we mean harm. To simply offend another is not harm.
       
      So your greatest tools for releasing yourself from the shame of pleasure is to recognize its validity and necessity, and then to own it and share the benefits of this pleasure freely, if you choose. When you are happy, you are a more loving presence in the world. It is harmful to reject pleasure.
       
      NEXT
       
      Kurtis: Hi Michael. I'd like to ask about elaboration on the King Casting in the same vein I've asked for the other castings before. In the same format as this on Server Casting, of course: "Server Casting might show up as a default, keen awareness of the needs, feelings, and behavior of those around you, sometimes to the extent of distraction. It might show up as a sensitivity and kindness that wishes only the best for others, while being rather frustrated, or even infuriated, with those who are inconsiderate and disrespectful of boundaries. It might show up as being in a position among friends and family that is more often than not turned to for insight, help, nurturing, availability, and understanding."
       
      King Casting might show up in its default form as a kind of quiet power, quiet confidence that is drawn upon as necessary, much like being "under cover" as an observer and then revealing surprising authority and leadership "out of nowhere." King Casting trusts in and respects the inner authority of those around him or her, but will happily help make up for any lack of this on a regular basis.
       
      NEXT
       
      TyroneT: I'd like to join with Kurtis in asking about castings: Can I get a description of Priest casting in the same format as you've given so far for Server, Artisan, Warrior and King?
       
      Priest Casting might show up in its default form as a kind of eagerness, willingness, and interest in the bettering of a person or situation. This Casting tends to find a way to be "in the middle" of people and events, drawn to "drama," to the point of being accused of "meddling." This Casting presumes that others naturally wish to evolve, to be better, and they are willing to help. This can get messy and is quite tricky. Because of this, Priest Casting can sometimes learn a kind of emotional sleight of hand and this can either give the reputation of being healers and helpers, or a manipulative nuisance.

      Nan: Yes, hello, Michael. Last month you gave some comments on the effect of different Body Types on such inner work as meditation and dream study – and further commented that Centering would also be of effect. Can you discuss the effect of good or poor access to the Intellectual, Emotional, or Moving Center (or other Centers?) in the practices of meditation and dream study?
       
      No Center can be shut down and each will find a way to be included. One cannot function without all three lower Centers functioning in some capacity. When a Center is "blocked," this tends to mean it is finding a less-useful, more distracting means for its participation in the balance.
       
      For example, those with "no" Moving Center tend to fidget, wiggle, and find reasons to move anyway. Because the Moving Center must move. Many think that a fidgety, restless, and antsy individual is Moving Centered, but this is a person who ignores the Moving Center.
       
      Another example might be when there is "no" use of the Emotional Center, but it finds a way to come out in outbursts, breakdowns, tantrums, etc.
       
      When one employs Meditation and Dream Study, one can often discover the best path to be relative to that Center most neglected.
       
      For example, those who have a hard time sitting still for a meditation in stillness can MOVE. Use dance, use exercise, use exploration, use walking, use the rhythm of music, etc.
       
      What you are doing is harnessing that which has come to be a kind of liability in its effort to bring balance, and instead begin to give it the nurturing and platform it requires.
       
      Nan: If Emotional Center is least accessible?
       
      Music is key to the lack of Emotional Center nurturing.
       
      Music, Listening, and Hugging.
       
      You need not move unless you feel inspired to move. You need not speak unless you feel inspired to speak.
       
      And the hugging helps the body to become familiar with the reality of the heart chakra by, literally, closing the gap between your own and others'.
       
      We know we can elaborate upon all of these subjects in more dedicated discussions, but this is our quick response.

      Janet: I shake my head in amazement multiple times a week as the so-called ‘leader’ of our country issues another tweet containing distorted and often simply unbelievable statements. Is the man the gullible sort who simply believes whatever he sees on tv or hears from his advisors that appeals to him?
       
      Janet: Or does he possess craftiness and cunning that allow him to understand that by issuing regular ‘stream of consciousness’ statements he can cause reactions that direct attention toward or away from whatever he wants to present or hide? I think knowing this information about him can help the rest of us resist his undesirable plans more effectively.
       
      It is not cunning. It is pathological.
       
      It is not gullibility. It is a failed 2nd Internal Monad and an incomplete 3rd Internal Monad. We see many refer to this individual as behaving like a child, and this is not inaccurate to where his world view is in terms of actions and consequences, entitlement and demand, and reactionary defenses and deflections.
       
      However, it works as both an expression of this pathology, and as a manipulative tactic and distraction as a path of Tyranny.
       
      It is not something that cannot be easily understood, if at all, but is imposed as a context for Tyranny. It is a tactic that is much like a toddler throwing a tantrum wherein your responses are a forced response no matter what you choose to do because you are forced to respond. One slowly grows accustomed and simply responds. This is powerful Tyranny as the force is developed from within the oppressed and begins to feel necessary and "normal," relieving the oppressor of the pressure to sustain force.
       
      It is Good Work to help one another to sustain your capacity for choice as this is not a toddler, even if the tactics are that of a toddler.

      Cong: Michael, can you comment on how to handle situations where we seem to be pressured to make a more “morally correct” choice? An example can be, I don’t typically want to give out money to someone who just walk up to me and ask for it - a lot of times, I feel that they took this for granted. However, sometimes, I wonder if I am not being compassionate enough. Another example can be, I might decline a date invite from someone not from my culture and race - which is a completely valid choice, but from time to time, I wonder if I make this kind of decision based on biased views. In these cases, it is not always clear to me where the line is that separates a choice based on fear and ignorance and a choice based on love and respect.
       
      Morality is so subjective and flexible that it makes for a useless system for determining one's choice and actions. We prefer to use the term ethical when determining what is "right and wrong" as ethical is a more objective calculation of consequences with real harm.
       
      However, you are not speaking about ethics or morals here.
       
      You are simply speaking of personal comfort and growth.
       
      None of what you describe makes you wrong, and other choices are not better.
       
      However, you do know that you are limiting your growth. You feel this. You know this. You know that your comfort zones are valuable, but you also know when they are not.
       
      Using the examples above:
       
      If you are speaking of those who may come up to you in public and ask you for money, you can either give or you do not. It is not complicated. You cannot truly give if you are only concerned with recognition, gratitude, or with how the giving is used. For many who have had to learn to "walk up and ask for money," the emotional center grows closed, quieted, and protected to help deal with the constant refusals and rejections and they are focused on survival. The time for gratitude often comes privately once the person is safe, fed, and has a moment to reflect.
       
      You may or may not be able to or even want to give money to everyone who asks, so a solution can come in two ways: find a way to give in more formal ways that you know will help specific communities, and/or simply give when you can or when you want, and do not give when you cannot or choose not.
       
      Turn these moments into invitations, rather than violations. Confidently and kindly say no, or confidently and kindly say yes.
       
      As for the cultural differences, let this be fun. Let this be experimental and informative, rather than threatening or inconvenient. If you feel you would be dealing with an insulting environment, then you can either be prepared to be patient and educate, or you can say no. It is always your responsibility to grow, but it is never your responsibility to accommodate the lack of growth in someone else. It is your choice for if and when to educate.
       
      So remove the concept of morality, and as long as your choice harms none, it is merely a preference. If you feel it is limiting you, then you are probably correct.
       
      NEXT, final question
       
      Ingun: Hello Michael, is there a term or designation or common name in your teaching or elsewhere when the Triad of Imagination, Intuition and Creativity is working together or used together?
       
      SENTIENCE
       
      We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

      I don't know if anyone here, is into this sort of stuff. But I'm open to discussing both Anarchism and Socialism with people if they'd find that interesting or helpful. I know these are not beginners subjects as far s politics goes, but I think given the times we are living in discussion of them might prove useful. I'm open to any questions no matter how basic. I know that as an old soul I find Anarchism a natural fit for me politically. I also am pretty well versed in Socialism. If people aren't interested that's fine. I just thought I'd put it out there.
