  • Artisans: Power of Specialty


    [Excerpted from OMW: Manifesting Power]


    We will discuss the concept of Power with you today.


    First, we will clarify what is meant by Power in our teaching, which we think is a meaning that extends to include most uses of the word.


    In our teaching, Power is an Expression Axis term. This is because Power can come from any number of sources and be implemented through any number of methods, but it requires Form, Expression, for it to be in existence. All terms on the Expression Axis require a move into Form for existence.


    The terms we choose for our Overleaf system are part of every individual life in some way, even as each Personality is a particular combination of emphasized terms. For example, one grows in a lifetime even if one does not have a Goal of Growth. Each fragment will have to contend with his or her relationship to Power, even if the Mode is not Power.


    Power is a spectrum that describes one's presence. The form of any kind of Power can range from between violent oppression that destroys to a quiet lucidity that awakens.


    Each Essence comes with a kind of built-in source of Power. How that comes into form is up to that fragment, and we have seen that every fragment will explore the entire range from violence to lucidity.


    Each Essence Role has a specific source or style of Power. We will share these with you, now.


    Keep in mind that Power is either GENERATED or EXTRACTED. There are other terms that could be used to describe these, but these terms will do. Power either comes from within, or without. Power that comes from within is regenerative and unlimited. Power that comes from without is dependent and limited.


    Keep this in mind as we describe the various Power of each Role.






    ARTISANS carry within them the Power of SPECIALTY.


    The Power of Specialty is one of expertise, of excelling in a field, skill, or talent.


    While Sages are the about the coming together of all parts as a means toward wholeness, Artisans are about the focus on A part as a means toward wholeness.


    When this Power of Specialty is dependent on external sources, it can show up as ECCENTRICITY.


    This is a specialization on a Part that is simply a means of differentiation.


    It can also be a result of no specialization, and a dependence upon specialness.


    The specialization in Eccentricity tends not to be about a talent, skill, or field, but a trait.


    When this Power of Specialty is from a regenerative source within, it shows up as DISTINGUISHED.


    This is a rise of prominence that exemplifies the refinement of talent, skill, or field.

      [Excerpt from: Michael Speaks: December 2001]
      [Dewliet] Hi Michael. Would you please discuss the concept of “missing” other people (i.e. “longing for”) as it relates to overleaves, soul age, etc.? I seem to have kind of an “out of sight, out of mind” attitude and never really “miss” anyone, no matter how much I love them — this goes for my husband and kids, parents, everybody. I was wondering if this is likely a function of overleaves or some combination of CF and false personality.
      This is a particular trait of Artisans. “Missing” people whom you know within a lifetime can be a trait anyone can develop in their varying degrees of attachment, but Artisans tend to be the least likely to attach to an individual identity. Artisans, however, can be the most likely to have a feeling of “missing something” that cannot be defined, which is, of course, linked to their existence at the “edge” of creation and their innate knowing that all are “one.” This can lead to all kinds of fantastical and invalid ideas about who they are or are not “connected” to.
      This is not to say Artisans do not get attached to people, but usually they will choose a single individual, if any at all, and that person will not have to be “missed” because that Artisan would die before separating from them. We say that metaphorically, of course.
      The Overleaves themselves are not inherently geared toward or away from attachment, except in how they manifest the Chief Features and create or balance Karma.

I wanted a photo of him where he wasn't looking sneering or scared, this happened to be one of very very few shots. He almost looks happy and relaxed. If there are better photos of him looking relaxed and unfearful looking into the camera I will put it up.
