[Excerpt from OMW: Validating your Profile]
[Geraldine] I've never completely validated to my satisfaction that I'm Sage-cast Sage; however, I think that is in large part due to poor definitions for Old Soul Sages in positive poles. I've validated my saginess more from how I acted when younger more than as I've been during the past 20 years or so. Although, I'm accepting that Old Sages may be far more wise and involved with truth than we give them credit for being. But, I liked how you worked with Diane's casting based on her Axis. Would you do similarly for me, even though I have matching casting/role?
First, we will say that in the case of Sage for Casting or Role, the "packaging" would include Acceptance, Power, and Idealism, even Greed. In your case, these would show up not only when you "shine," but as a means for functioning on a day-to-day basis.
Regardless of Soul Age, Sages will ALWAYS be affected by issues of Acceptance, and regardless of the Goal, will always move in directions that support or encourage Acceptance. This progresses in cycles of pushing for Acceptance of the self and of pushing for Acceptance of others.
Beneath every motivation of a Sage is somehow connected to the pursuit of being Accepted.
[Geraldine] Yes, I'm prone to a sweeping feeling of being rejected on a heartbeat.
In other words, Dissemination or Oration will always be related to a Sage's navigation of Acceptance. For example, most Sages who Orate do so as a means to compensate for a sense of not being Accepted. ...
Common to the motivation of all Sages would be statements that might go something like "I am telling you this so you can accept me;" or "I am telling you this so you can accept that;" or "I am telling you this so you can accept you;" or "I am telling you this so I can express my acceptance." ...
Going further, all Sages take a stance of Authority or Oppression in terms of relating information to you.
Sages RELATE to the world, or to others, in terms of Expression in the face of Oppression, or sharing information as an Authority on that particular information. Power Mode is about being Present, and this is how Sages make their presence known.
This is why Sages can come across as "obnoxious" and as "know it alls," because this is their nature: to be themselves, even when you wish they would not, and to speak or communicate with confidence, even as they know there may be more to learn.
Sages have PRESENCE, or in our system, POWER.
Sages cannot relate to others without feeling PRESENT.
Otherwise, they are invisible, and invisible equals non-existent.
No other Role (or Casting) requires their Presence to be known as a means for experiencing existence.
Sages must show up somehow, to someone, or they die, either or both metaphorically and literally.
Going further, all Sages, regardless of Soul Age, sees the world in terms of how it can be improved. Regardless of the Attitude of the Personality, there will always be a theme of communicating for the sake of improving what has been deemed in need of improvement, whether this is a slow conversation, an awkward moment, a relationship, or a paradigm.
Sages may do this through telling you all of the steps necessary for that improvement (coalescence) or by simply telling you it needs to improve (naivety).
