  • Old Artisans


    This material was pulled from a private transcript originally posted on 6/28/10.


    [We] can share with you the various ways these Roles show up when Old, rather than in the stereotypical, Young ways that may have come to be generalized about these roles.


    Overall, as each Role grows and evolves, it becomes more like its complementary Role on its axis. This exploration of the complementary Role is not an assigned form of evolution, but one that is important to each fragment as it gains awareness and consciousness, and as such becomes an emphasis in the Old Cycle. This exploration allows for a sense of completeness and a wholeness of the Role.


    In the case of the Old Artisan, the fragment moves away from the quietude of private creativity and begins to expand that creativity into the life as its work of art. The exploration of recognition and acknowledgment become important, which is quite uncomfortable for the Artisan, but now it is craved in a way that is not easy to ignore. This craving for recognition is not in the sense of praise so much as it is a recognition of quality in the creation of the life through the choices that are made. The Old Artisan becomes distracted with appearances, and how the self and the life look to others, much in the same way that the younger Artisan is distracted with the perfection of a conventional art piece. In the younger cycles, the Artisan tends to care only if this is pleasing to the self, but in the older cycles, the Artisan can tend to include others as part of that assessment of creation. Each choice, each action, each emotion is measured and scrutinized like a brush stroke on a canvas, which can lead the Old Artisan to overcompensation, trying too hard, and presentation instead of authentic presence.
