    Nicholas33: Hello to you too Michael. When we had the session on manifesting essence you stated something along the lines of the role having core values as a foundation to build upon. You gave me some examples for the Sage but I was wondering if I can have the core values of the other roles as well.

     

    MEntity:
    Yes ...

     

    SERVERS - Caring, Inspiration, Peace, Intuition, Permission, Vulnerability, and being living examples of Interdependence.

     

    Keep in mind that these Core Values will be upheld in some way, even if they are upheld in desperate and unhealthy ways.

     

    These can be upheld in ways that serve only the self, serve only others, or serve a balance between the two.

      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We were not "kidding" about the wave of short-circuiting issues over the next month or so. It is rather pervasive and growing.
       
      We will leave the order up to Geraldine to manage. We will simply say that you may begin your questions. We are ready.
       
      TyroneT:
      My question is about human psychology. I know the Michael definition or explanation of male and female energy is a matter of focus versus creativity, but I don't remember exactly where I found it (it could have even been from another channel), but I'm sure I've seen somewhere the statement that one difference between human males and females is a tendency towards certain centering.
       
      One area that this knowledge for me would be applied are in the issues of the LGBT community, especially the transgender community, so if it's possible, I'd like connections to that. I doubt a full-enough elaboration will fit into fifteen minutes, so just a tidbit or foundational info from which to base later session questions on would be enough.
       
      Official Question: What are the psychological differences, tendencies, or characteristics inherent in having a physically male or female body/brain/subtle body?
       
      MEntity:
      First, we find there is little consistency among Gender correlation with Centering, but high consistency with cultural paradigms. Cultures and societies are predominantly of one Centering and/or Part over the others. Centering is not biological in any way. The Centering of an individual is not settled upon as a habitual form of navigation until the 2nd Internal Monad, and is then fairly stable, however, Centering is designed to be flexible and to change, not to be static.
       
      Next, in response to your "official" question, we will say that the only differences between bodies in terms of male and female are the degrees of consciousness. The less-conscious a Personality, the more it's identity, behavior, processes, and navigation are based from the base functions of the sex.
       
      To help in understanding this, a male body without an Essence is 100% Male, 100% focused, 100% linear, 100% the stereotype of the pervasive ideal of what it means to be a male Human on Earth. However, the Energy Ratio of an Essence alters this. This alteration begins at birth, and takes about 7 years for a full adjustment.
       
      There will never be, and never has been, a Human who is 100% male or 100% female.
       
      TyroneT: ok. I'll ask about various lbgt phenomena later
       
      MEntity:
      However, regardless of one's Energy Ratio, if the Essence is rejected, then, say, if one has a High Female Energy, but is in a Male Body, that Male/Focused Energy will tend to dominate.
       
      And by dominate, we do not mean that it would make the individual masculine or necessarily functioning by standards of behavior attributed to "males," but it will dominate in many ways, subtle or obvious. It will be aggressive, forceful, reactionary, etc.
       
      This subject is far too complex and intricate for us to cover in 15 minutes. We know we have not covered a response to your question, but we suggest this be a topic for further exploration.
       
      JanaK:
      Hello Michael. Can you please give generic tips for someone looking to move a country for the sake of personal and professional growth and adventure - other than obvious research?
       
      i.e. how to gauge whether a particular place would be good for me - other than visiting it?
       
      Or whether such radical move would even be good for me?
       
      Or whether there are more desirable vectors where I am or where I am considering moving to?
       
      MEntity:
      Jana, to make a decision such as this, and to do so "blindly," would mean using one's intuition. Using one's intuition means LISTENING. By "listening" we mean to say that intuition is soft, subtle, and impulsive. It is not loud, pushy, or compulsive. So if you feel compelled to move somewhere, feel pushed to do so, and feel distracted by it, we suggest allowing that to come up and be acknowledged, then set gently aside as you listen to see what is beyond that noise. Your intuition may say the same things, but you just want to check in with that less-distracted, panicked, or anxious part of the self for validation of one's sense of direction.
       
      In addition to this, if your compulsion to move is motivated by a feeling or idea that life will be better somewhere else, check in with yourself to see if that is valid. A change of scenery and geography can do wonders for altering the life in positive ways, but only if that change of scenery is the actual part that is key. In other words, moving to another location does not leave YOU or your life behind. You will still have to deal with your feelings, history, beliefs, wounds, etc. Our point being that if the move is motivated by escape from the self, then it is often more helpful to direct the movement internally, not externally.
       
      If you can check in with yourself and listen to the softer voice of impulse and creativity within, and it is not hijacked by anxiousness and overeagerness to escape, then your next step is to look at the locations that appeal to you.
       
      These locations appeal to you for various reasons, including potential, Agreements, Sequences, Vectors, etc., but they are only a part of the story.
       
      Potential, Agreements, Sequences, Vectors, can be anywhere, and you could throw a dart at a map and these would spring up in activation relative to wherever you move. But there is validity to your sense of attraction to an area because those areas are already active with those elements. Though you can find Agreements, etc. anywhere, it can make a difference that they are already active and negotiated when you arrive.
       
      So once you have concluded that you are choosing to move because you want to move, and not as a means of escape (unless there is a valid threat), then you can narrow your choices down by the simple sense of attraction to locations. Narrow these down to 3, and put up a symbolic image of each so that you can see these on a daily basis.
       
      As you pass these symbols on a daily basis over a week or so, note which one your eye is drawn to the most. Be mindful that your eye may be drawn only because of the image you picked, but this will not matter. Once you notice which one is standing out, and you play with the idea that this is the location you will aim to move, you will feel the pang of resistance to that place versus one of the others.
       
      From there, it is a matter of honoring your choice.
       
      Kurtis: Hey Michael, like last time with Saturnine body type health, would you please elaborate on the martial body type health? Thanks.
       
      MEntity:
      Martial Body Type Health corresponds to the Adrenals of the body. This means that the Martial Body Type can be greatly affected by its capacity for management of stress. In fact, while stress is a factor for all body types, in the Martial Body Type, it is far more immediately converted into effects.
       
      Various forms of Catecholamines are released on a regular basis in response or reaction to experiences. This range of hormones are responses and reactions to stress. These tend to have the Martial Body Type health in a constant state of fight or flight, regarding experiences.
       
      Hormones that manage various minerals and water content of the body are connected to the Adrenals, and have direct effect upon the individual's blood pressure. Other effects from the Adrenals are reflected in the metabolism, as well as the differentiating processes between the male bodies and female bodies in Androgens.
       
      When this is balanced, the Martial Body Type is long-suffering, enduring, and can manage to navigate some of the most debilitating obstacles of health and existence.
       
      When this is imbalanced, it can show up as extreme lethargy, constant stress and anxiety, hyper-agitation and over-reaction, along with extremes of anger, temper, and depression.
       
      In some extremes, there can come to be a developed hatred and self-loathing for the body as it is represented by its gender, and this can lead to self-mutilation and rejection of the gender.
       
      Overall, the Martial Body Type is all about the physical manifestation of all energy that passes through that body, whether in thought or emotion.
       
      scott: Michael, i have a question about ORIGINALITY...i'm sure many artists suffer with this block of needing to be original. though upon looking at my favourite artists i wouldn't say their work is at all without influence...so what is it we are responding to when we say something is original? Is it the enthusiasm from the artist making it? Is there such thing as originality? I would love your take on originality to help put an end to this ancient crisis of the artist once and for all."
       
      MEntity:
      Originality is valid. Originality does not preclude influence and inspiration. There is a difference between originality that is inspired, and one who is copying or imitating. If one of our students were to write a book about his or her experiences of our teaching and conveyed that in a way that teaches what was learned, it will not matter that the core of what is being taught did not originate with that student. What matters is his or her original take on that, as he or she was inspired. Not even our own teaching originates from us, but is utterly original. We only teach our take on the truth, love, and energy that originated beyond us. But our teaching is utterly original in its form.
       
      Originality is what one does with one's inspiration.
       
      Beyond this, the judgments will continue to be subjective in terms of what is "truly" original, or not, but the dividing line fairly clearoriginality is inspired, while non-originality is a copy, imitation, or mimicking.
       
      For instance, one does not need be inspired to put together a model airplane, or to sing a song that is a pop formula created by someone else. One may feel inspired, but the form taken is not. It is copied. It is mimicked. It is an attempt to capture what was inspired in the original.
       
      Andy Warhol was an artist with originality, and he exemplifies the precarious, but clear line between copy and creation.
       
      Consider one more thing when pondering originalityyou are utterly original. You are utterly unique. You are a single idea that will never be replicated. Yet you are not new. You are an evolution. You are built upon inspiration. You are not a copy, though "you" have existed multiple times. Art is similar.
       
      Let your art, your originality, be an evolution built upon inspiration, and you will relieve yourself of this perplexing and distracting concern.

      From a previous transcript
       
      Though it is rare, there are some fragments who do not settle on one particular Chief Feature, but these are usually cases of what some call "Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder," "Schizophrenia," and "Multiple Personalities." This is due to a breakdown in communication among the Physiological aspects of self (Obsessive-Compulsive), the Emotional aspects of self (Schizophrenia), or Intellectual aspects of self (Multiples).
       
      Can you elaborate further on this with regard to OCD and how it might be possible to get the parts "back in communication" again?
       
      MEntity:
      The breakdown in physiological aspects of the self has to do with the preoccupation with the idea that nearly every single thing one does has a direct and relevant effect upon something else. It is a distraction with absolute control. It develops out of the sense that one is directly responsible for everything in some way. In many cases of "OCD," there was a point in the 2nd Internal Monad where the psyche drew a connection between a terrible thing and a reckless action.
       
      That reckless action could have been anything, and often it is a completely unrelated and irrelevant action.
       
      So the body and personality begin to breakdown the sense of cohesive picture of the actions in the life. To manage one part of the life, action in another must be kept under control, and so on, cascading in effect across the life so that the individual is mired in meaningless and repetitive actions that act like a web woven through the life that keeps it in precarious balance.
       
      To bring these aspects back into cohesion would depend on the extent to which there is fracture.
       
      For clinical OCD, intervention is often required, with a retraining of the mind and actions so that one can learn that life is not precariously held in balance by these repetitive and consuming actions.
       
      For milder cases of OCD, it can be a matter of asking for help from a loved one, and making the effort. The help would come in the form of the loved one playing a trusted, but random force in the life. He or she would alter or interrupt patterns, and the one with OCD would do his or her best to LIVE THROUGH IT.
       
      This is a highly simplistic description of the process, but over time, after one lives through a rearranged towel rack, a messy book shelf, and unmade bed, or had their hand washing, counting, tapping, etc. interrupted enough, the body begins to return to a state of cohesion.
       
      Again, this is a subject that may require a more dedicated format, but this is our response in this limited format.
       
      brian: Hi Michael. How can one create an effective anchor to ground themselves during anxiety or stress?
       
      MEntity:
      There are two ways to do so, Brian: internally and/or externally. It would always do one well to nurture the internal grounding, first, considering that external forms are not always accessible, but it is helpful to identify external forces for grounding that one can use for support.
       
      Internal grounding methods to counter stress and anxiety would vary from individual to individual, but one can turn to the Attitude for help in determining methods for help with anxiety and stress.
       
      When one is anxious or stressed, it is often a result of falling into the negative pole of one's Attitude.
       
      The key to grounding for recovery from that stress and anxiety can come from the positive pole of the partner Attitude.
       
      brian: How might that work for the Pragmatist?
       
      MEntity:
      For example, the Spiritualist has fallen into BELIEF. Anxiety can come from deciding what is true over knowing what is true. When one decides what is true without knowing what is true, it can be quite precarious in terms of anxiety and stress. To help the person in BELIEF to move back into VERIFICATION, the use of TRANQUILITY (the positive pole of Stoic) can be key.
       
      Internal Tranquility can come in the form of conscious breath, stopping all action, closing the eyes, and visualizing flying or floating. External Tranquility can come in the form of a bath, a conscious shower, with the flow of water moving over the body coming into focus to help dissolve the hardened beliefs that are causing stress.
       
      Then the Spiritualist can ask himself or herself again, "is this really true, or do I just think it is?"
       
      From that grounded space, Verification can come.
       
      In a more dedicated format, we can go through all of the Attitudes to offer suggestions, but this is the general idea. Each of you can come up with creative ways to exemplify what it would mean for you to internally and externally use the Positive Pole of the partner Attitude as a suggestion for how to ground yourself from stress and anxiety.
       
      Look at that partner Positive Pole and ask yourself what it would mean for that to be implemented internally and externally. We trust your creative ideas would help you to find what works for you.
       
      DianeHB: Hi Michael, could you elaborate on the Mercurial Body Type Health like you did for Kurtis?
       
      MEntity:
      In much the same way that the Martial Body Type reflects an immediate translation of action/movement into form in the body, the Mercurial Body Type can reflect immediate translation of idea/intellect into form in the body. The Mercurial Body Type health correlates to the Thyroid, and is a communication system throughout the body, since the Thyroid regulates key hormones that relate to brain chemistry.
       
      For those with Mercurial Body Types of Health, it will be vital to these bodies to always express ideas, to communicate and share and exchange in ways that are not just to satisfy the personality, but to keep the body healthy. Mercurial Body Types are highly susceptible to degradation of health if expression is blocked, ignored, or distorted by misunderstanding or lack of capacity to be clear.
       
      Mercurial Body Types must keep the ideas and thoughts flowing in and out of the brain in a way that is as vital to that individual as the flow of blood in and out of the heart.
       
      For those who suffer from an imbalance of the Thyroid, it is often reflective of an imbalance in the life regarding lack of permission for expression, or lack of stimuli for ideas, or panicked and over-eager, hyperactive processes that cannot be expressed well.
       
      The Thyroid regulates key hormones relative how the brain uses these, which are adrenaline, ephinephrine, and dopamine, so when these are out of balance, the body can start to take on weight alterations that reflect the weight of thoughts, ideas, expressions that are not moved out of the body.
       
      We will conclude here for tonight. We know that we can only respond briefly to some of your questions that are quite broad, or requiring further exploration, so consider these responses as invitations for further exchange, and not as conclusive responses.
       
      Good evening to each of you.

      This material originated with the March 2010 Michael Speaks. Special thanks to BrianW for posting his copy of the session or the content would have been lost. Although this session suggests that the missing content will be added, this has not yet been done. The roles covered in this session are those that were represented by session attendees. 
       
      Note: In 2019 TeamTLE completed a project to update this session to include Mature and Old Ages for all Roles. See TeamTLE: The Roles for Mature and Old Souls (Updated). The updated version includes all the content below with new content added. This transcript was left in place to preserve the discussion string. 
       
      MEntity:
      Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a discussion on the topic requested.
       
      Before doing so, we would like to point out that while it may seem to be the case, it is actually impossible to misrepresent, misunderstand, or misapply our teaching.
       
      When we say "impossible," we speak in relative terms that describe the fact of so many nuances and dynamics that go into representation, understanding, and applying our teaching.
       
      Our teaching cannot be misrepresented because it is either represented, or it is not. Beyond that, it cannot be misrepresented because if the student is not discerning and questioning beyond the representation, then he or she is not learning anyway.
       
      Our teaching cannot be misunderstood because this implies that there is a standard method and means for understanding. The only time this teaching is "misunderstood" is if one standard is held up against another. You will understand this teaching as you understand it.
       
      However, we will add to that statement that your understanding is never complete, and to presume that it is would be the end of learning.
       
      Our teaching cannot be misapplied, as again, this would imply a neat standard that describes how it "should" be applied. Even when our teaching is used as a platform for justifying behaviors, or to seek a sense of specialness, it is being applied on your terms, and those are the only terms we encourage.
       
      However, we would add to that statement that your terms are never fully understood, and to presume that your terms are static is to halt growth.
       
      When we say "halt growth" and "the end of learning," we mean these as temporary conditions of the Personality, and not permanent on any meaningful level for Essence.
       
      Though Troy's introduction was not intended to provoke this clarification from us, we do think it important to distinguish our channels' opinions from our own.
       
      That being said, there is validity to the fact that there is little recorded from us through our channels about the distinctions among the Roles in how they manifest through the Soul Ages, and we can address that today.
       
      We must point out, though, that anything we describe about any aspect of our teaching will, by necessity, be "generalized," as there is simply no way to describe ALL Old Sages, for instance. Numerous factors go into the manifestation of a Personality and Essence within a lifetime.
       
      Our Teachings can best be understood in both CONTEXTUAL and HOLISTIC terms.
       
      Contextual in that each phrase, term, or polarity is distinct within a specific context, and that context is an entity in itself, so to speak.
       
      Holistic in that this is a system that works dynamically, "organically," and when understood as a system, comes to life in a way that cannot be fully understood in its parts.
       
      For instance, if one were to be described or dismissed as being only a Kidney, it would not capture the full humanity of that individual, but to understand the functioning and purpose of the Kidney is vital on its own.
       
      Furthermore, lacking comprehension of the full humanity of that individual leaves one lacking understanding in how that particular Kidney actually functions for that particular person.
       
      We say all of this to you before delving into the topic at hand because what we will describe today, for the most part, is CONTEXTUAL.
       
      Within the time limits, we will cover Mature and Old Soul contexts for each Role, but will complete the subject with Troy so that Infant, Baby, and Young are included in exploring each Role.
       
      Each of the Roles through the Soul Ages could best be understood as manifesting more and more Essence through the Personalities that are created. Essence Manifestation can and does happen within all Soul Ages, but the degrees to which that manifestation occurs does grow.
       
      What we will describe today are what those degrees might look like for the Mature and Old Roles, in both positive and negative ways. Keep in mind that regardless of your technical Soul Age, you may be manifesting younger Soul Ages at various points within the life, or for the entire lifetime.
       
      For the most part, manifestation of various soul ages is proportional to the various contexts of your life, so that if you work within a Young Soul environment, you may call upon the Young Soul aspects of your Essence, and in Intimate circles, you may call on more of your actual Soul Age.
       
      "Manifesting Soul Age" is not static, and is not a description of limitations. It is simply a description of emphasis and resource for the lifetime, a relationship, a career, project, etc.
       
      What we describe today is a Role manifesting its actual Soul Age.
       
      Because of Personality, this may show up wildly different among that Roles "in the world," so what we describe may only be obvious to you privately.
       
      The progression through the Soul Ages for the Roles could be described as a progression of emphasis from DOING to HAVING to BEING. Infant and Baby emphasize DOING. Young emphasizes HAVING. Mature emphasizes the reconciliation between HAVING and BEING. And Old emphasizes BEING.
       
      Understanding this can help lend insights into the various Soul Ages and how the Roles manifest.
       
      Now we will walk through the Roles as they might be understood in Mature and Old Soul contexts.
       
      MATURE SERVERS
       
      Mature Servers tend to find themselves struggling with the reconciliation of Having Recognition, and Being Helpful.
       
      Over the course of the Young Soul Age, it finally occurs to the Server on a profound level that it is okay to be recognized, praised, rewarded, and that a reciprocating circuit of energy is vital to sustaining Service.
       
      Service is not a one-way circuit. One cannot serve where it is not received, and one cannot continue to serve without some form of exchange of nurturing at the very least.
       
      For many lifetimes previous to the Young Soul Age, this nurturing is either neglected until it cannot be any longer, or it is found in breaks between Serving. The Young Server then tends to use that entire Age to "catch up" on self-service to the extent that it can.
       
      In the Mature Age, then, the reconciliation begins between having that necessity of exchange in nurturing, and the core Being that seeks to serve in meaningful ways.
       
      Mature Servers, then, tend to be extremely busy, pulled in many directions, internally and externally, while they struggle with issues of utter availability and ineffective over-extension.
       
      The eventual reconciliation comes when the Mature Server only offers service when it can.
       
      OLD SERVERS
       
      The Old Server now emphasizes Being, and in this case, Being Helpful. At the very core of the Server is the design to HELP.
       
      (An aside: At first, all design in the early Soul Ages is manifested as compulsion as the default design is relied upon, but eventually becomes impulsion as the capacity for conscious choice grows.)
       
      Old Servers often do not "serve" at all in the capacity that one would think of as serving. The Mature Soul is ACTIVE. The Old Soul is PASSIVE. In this case, the Old Server "passively" Helps.
       
      The Old Server then begins to use exemplification as his or her means of offering Help. The entire life, self, and Being become the manifestation of Essence in that the Old Server WILL NOT allow himself or herself to suffer.
       
      If help can be gained from that by another, then the Old Server may extend upon that, but it has learned that suffering is a useless experience and will refuse to Help at the expense of self, but will unconditionally Help those who are willing to give up suffering.
       
      That may sound conditional, but it is not. It is simply a hard lesson learned that those who suffer most often choose not to be helped in any meaningful way.
       
      We define "suffer" here as that state of intellectual and emotional overwroughtness that leaves no room for solutions.
       
      Those who suffer in that way eventually learn that they are the only ones who can transform that experience, and all other influences are merely salves or addictions.
       
      The Old Server does not cater to that endless dynamic.
       
      MATURE ARTISANS
       
      The Mature Artisan has just come from an Age where it experienced being able to create and have everything it could possibly imagine within the constraints of resources at the time.
       
      The Mature Artisan now enters into an Age that must reconcile Having What It Wants and Being Who It Needs.
       
      Previous to this Soul Age, simply wanting something was often enough to have it, because it could either be created, or it could be discovered, and most of what was wanted was tangible and all "new" to the Artisan. In the Mature Soul Age, nothing tangible is "new" anymore, and what is most wanted is often intangible.
       
      This causes a struggle for the Mature Artisan so that cravings can often show up as a distraction with "things" as a means to compensate for the intangible, or as rejection of "things" as a means to hold out for the intangible.
       
      Mature Artisans can often find themselves in desperate relationships, devastating patterns of collapse and destruction, and manipulative methods for finding ways to be special. More than any other Role, this Role, in general, struggles with the inner battle between Specialness and Uniqueness.
       
      What the Mature Artisans eventually realize is that it is THEY whom they crave, desire, and want more than anything "in the world."
       
      Therein lies the reconciliation between Having and Being for the Mature Artisan.
       
      Artisans tend to develop patterns that leave them functioning only as conduits, often feeling as if "they" are left out, or left behind.
       
      During the Mature Soul Age, it is the first time in a long time that they "come home to themselves."
       
      And recognize their vital part in the equation of their desires and wants.
       
      Until that realization has been comprehended, there will be many instances where the Mature Artisan develops symbiotic relationships that continue to enforce the loss, or blurring, of self with environment or another.
       
      OLD ARTISANS
       
      The Old Artisan is often no longer concerned with creating tangible things, but struggles to make the entire life the creation, the work of art. Everything around the Old Artisan becomes symbolic and every symbol has meaning in relation to the self.
       
      The Old Artisan, then, is often tireless in the effort to showcase the life, the Personality, and even the relationships as symbolic extensions of the Soul.
       
      They become extremely sensitive to any deviation or distraction from their own symbology, and can often find themselves bewildered, hurting, and profoundly confused by these things.
       
      They develop systems of symbology that work, but often do not realize that these are not always the same symbols or meanings that others will tend to use.
       
      Eventually the Old Artisan realizes that there are a multitude of symbols and meanings for symbols that cannot be truly standardized, and this is when the Artisan is finally free.
       
      In conclusion for the Old Artisan, if the freedom is not found through the realization of various symbolic systems, then that Artisan may find he or she begins to tunnel-vision into a closed network that only supports his or her system of symbols, and anything beyond that is either a threat, or is ignored.
       
      Due to time constraints, we will do our best to streamline the details for each of the following Roles, and Troy will "flesh it out" for the final transcript.
       
      We will address Old Warrior, Old Scholar, Old Sage, and Old Priest now.
       
      We will include the rest in the final transcript.
       
      OLD WARRIORS
       
      The Old Warrior has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING AMBITION and BEING SAFE. During the Mature Age, both of those terms become profoundly redefined so that "ambition" becomes "enthusiasm" and "safe" becomes "loved."
       
      The Old Warrior then begins to naturally generate enthusiasm over emphasis on accomplishment and ambition, and begins to persuade circles of love from the self and from others as opposed to circles of protection and safety.
       
      Protection is no longer seen in terms of defense against physical threats, but as a transformation of strengths through the capacity to love.
       
      This may go counter to what is often understood as a Warrior, but the Old Warrior is done fighting, and seeks to share what it has found to be the most bountiful resource and strength in the universe: Love.
       
      Of course, this can show up in many different ways and to several different degrees, but when the Old Warrior is manifested, it has a profound sense of safety in the world and seeks to extend that validity to others.
       
      If the Old Warrior has not comprehended that sense of safety, he or she will often show up as emphasizing warnings, concerns, preemptive strategies, and constant over-anticipation.
       
      OLD SCHOLARS
       
      The Old Scholar has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING EXPERIENCE and BEING INTIMATE. During the Mature Age, the reconciliation between Experience and Intimacy is a long, often painful, road for the Scholar.
       
      Much of what is considered necessary by the Scholar for Experience is to have as "clean" an experience as possible, which often means leaving others out of the inner world that processes these experiences.
       
      QUESTION: Could you define intimacy in the sense of your meaning?
       
      MEntity:
      Intimacy here is meant as any form of Resonance, from sharing common ground to sex. The key being that it is INCLUSIVE, in that what is shared is not only mutual, but experienced as mutual.
       
      More than any other Role, the Scholar struggles with issues of Intimacy, of feeling connected to others, of finding common ground, and of feeling embraced.
       
      The Old Scholar has realized that Experience and Intimacy are not mutually exclusive, but Intimacy has been put off for so long for the sake of experiments, exploration, etc., that the world of Intimacy as an Old Soul is entirely new for the most part.
       
      Because the nature of the Scholar is to observe objectively, then this search for Intimacy may often be approached from the angle of provision, in that IF it exists, then it must be something provided for the Scholar, and not something he or she must work to generate from the self.
       
      Intimacy is such an amorphous concept to the Scholar that in the Old Soul Age, it will either feign intimacy as a means to have any kind of human contact at all, often leaving it to others to sort out the details, or to nurture that intimacy, or it will finally realize that he or she IS the source of intimacy, and begin to develop this from "the inside, out."
       
      The issue for the Scholar is often that if it is not found externally, then it is not a valid Experience, and therefore is not to be trusted.
       
      Ironically, anything that is already deemed as so amorphous that it cannot be trusted when generated within will also be deemed suspicious when generated from others.
       
      Therefore, the key for the Old Scholar in his or her embrace of Being Intimate is to begin comprehending TRUST.
       
      Trust is a mix of anticipated results and past experiences. It is not blind, and therefore it can be used by the Scholar.
       
      When the Old Scholar begins to recognize his or her embrace of himself, he or she can then begin to embrace others. If the embrace of others is attempted before the embrace of self, then there will always be an equation that returns the Scholar back to the beginning.
       
      They are highly mathematical that way.
       
      Trust comes in as the gathering of experience grows to show the Scholar that he or she will not die because he or she reached out, and that one is not alone just because one might actually like oneself.
       
      In short, the validity of Being for the Scholar cannot be proven through others, but the validity of others can be proven through the embrace of Being.
       
      OLD SAGES
       
      The Old Sage has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING FUN and BEING HONEST. Now the Old Sage begins to emphasize Being Honest, even if it means at the expense of Fun.
       
      Old Sages often begin to withdraw from the "stage" and move into tighter circles that value honesty and true communication. It is no longer appealing in any way to simply perform the life. For the first time, the Old Sage values the importance of truly being SEEN.
       
      Even if there are a myriad of personas from habit and skill, the emphasis will still be there underlying every relationship and every opportunity: PLEASE SEE ME.
       
      This starts out as a kind of panic for some Sages entering the Old Soul Age, in that their existence depends on the utter honesty and rawness of being SEEN, and this can show up in desperate attempts to be understood, clarifying themselves, over-explaining, etc.
       
      This eventually levels out to a simple state of invitation.
       
      The emphasis moves from needing to be seen exactly how the Sage sees himself or herself to an emphasis on understanding how others actually see.
       
      This comprehension frees the Old Sage from the panic and loneliness of not being seen, and moves him or her into simply BEING HONEST. Once the Sage realizes that he or she cannot control how others interpret others, then Being Honest stands as an invitation, not as a prompt.
       
      QUESTION: How much of this "role in essence" material applies to casting?
       
      MEntity: All of what we have described can be extrapolated to apply to understanding Casting and Imprinting, in terms of Roles.
       
      INTERJECTION: I've never thought of Imprinting being a co-equal on use of role descriptors
       
      MEntity:
      For many who live as the Role that most influenced them, it can be helpful for freeing the self by transforming the dynamic that keeps the imprinting locked in place.
       
      Imprinting will always supercede Role and Casting, as Personality has the most control and influence while Physical.
       
      We should say, Imprinting will always supercede Role, Casting, and Overleaves.
       
      INTERJECTION: So, that's why it's especially important to figure out one's parents' profiles 🙂
       
      MEntity:
      Not necessarily.
       
      What would be more important is honest self-examination to determine just how conflicted one is within himself or herself.
       
      When Imprinting is useful, there is no conflict.
       
      When Imprinting is harmful, there is often pain ranging from apathy to tremendous turmoil.
       
      Harmful Imprinting ALWAYS shows up as the reprimanding voice that undermines your efforts. ALWAYS.
       
      Harmful Imprinting ALWAYS shows up as any conclusive voice within that divides you and defeats you.
       
      Your inherent nature, when free from harmful Imprinting, is truthful, loving, and energetic. When weighed with harmful Imprinting, you become divided with a dishonest, shameful, and undermining force against that inherent nature.
       
      However, it must be understood that Imprinting is NEVER PERMANENT and can be shed at any moment.
       
      If one struggles for any length of time with that Imprinting that is harmful, then some part of the self finds some value in it.
       
      We define "harmful Imprinting" as any Imprinting that has been kept beyond the 3rd Internal Monad that does not serve the Personality and Essence in any helpful way.
       
      QUESTION: why and how is it that a personality tends to manifest more essence as it progresses through the soul ages?
      QUESTION: still don't understand this...
      QUESTION is personality designed that way by essence?
       
      MEntity:
      The progression of Soul Ages is our way of describing a regaining of consciousness that allows for bridging between the Essence and Personality. That regaining of consciousness is done through experience. Therefore, in early lifetimes that have less experience, then it goes that less consciousness is involved, and thus less manifestation of Essence.
       
      Even the Oldest of Souls must regain consciousness within a single lifetime, yet that regaining of consciousness is accelerated because of the sheer weight of experience previous to that lifetime.
       
      It is not that manifestation of Essence does not happen within earlier lifetimes, but that the manifestation is specific to the degree of consciousness, relative to the degree of experience.
       
      So an Infant Soul can manifest Essence fully into the lifetime, but most of that manifestation would still be within the contexts (or degrees) of Survival.
       
      When an Old Soul is born into a body, that infant body is going to drool and wail and poop itself as it focuses on surviving. To that degree, that Personality's consciousness can manifest Essence.
       
      As that body grows, so does its capacity for consciousness.
       
      In that same way, the ROLE grows for ESSENCE.
       
      The Role and Essence are two different things.
       
      Therefore, the "body" that is the Role must grow over lifetimes as a means to manifest more of its Essence.
