[Excerpted from a private session originally posted by Our Geraldine on November 11, 2007]
Geraldine: My major question to start would be that as a Sage casted Sage, I seem fairly atypical -- so my focus would be getting that explained
We would say that it is true that you are a Sage-Cast Sage, but more typical than you might think, given the range of expression prevalent among those who are also Sage-Cast. Given the various aspects of your Overleaves, there is a tempering of the expression in the way that others may not have as a design, however, it is the manifestation of your Soul Age that makes the greatest difference.
Sage-Cast fragments who are younger in Soul Age or less-comfortable with the space between their inner world and outer world will tend to be more chaotic and "typical" of what is known as "Sage behavior." In addition to your manifesting more of your Essence through your body, which brings a refinement to the Sage-Casting in itself, you are also at the 4th Level of your Soul Age, which is a level that works to resolve the differences between the inner and outer. You have found many ways to manage these differences, and one of those ways is through the refinement of your expression, along with a true appreciation of stillness and observation.
Sage-Cast fragments tend to have wild and untempered expressions in their daily lives, and a Sage-Cast Sage can be a "nightmare" when in the negative poles of the personality or disconnected from Essence, but the most refined of Sage-Cast fragments are those who are Sage in Essence. ...
We will return for one brief comment about your being a Sage-Cast Sage, in that while you have a refinement of expression and a nice resolution between the inner and outer of your worlds, we would remind you that you have had your moments of "going off Dixie Carter-style" and speaking your eloquent (or not-so-eloquent) piece of mind when you feel the necessity or the triggering.
Geraldine: Oh yes! I validate being Sage based on a lot of previous history. I just felt I'd matured and worked to get past a lot of the more flamboyant aspects.
"Flamboyant" and "mature" are not mutually exclusive, but your maturing has brought about a wholeness that requires less "presentation" and appreciates more "presence."
Because you know how you used flamboyancy and presentation, you are far more sensitive to its dishonesty of expression and while you appreciate the spectrum of expression, a true Sage values truth through expression over mere expression any day.
