    The 9 Pillars aka “trues”

     

    Many of you have heard “True Work (Life Task);” “True Play;” True Rest;” and “True Study.” These are known as the 4 “Pillars of Vitality.” They create a quadrant. These were the most immediately applicable for most of our students once there is comprehension of the Overleaves. In fact, none of the “trues” are very practical if the Overleaves are not validated, accurate, and understood.

     

    True Work, or the Life Task, is the core of each Quadrant. This is because the Life Task is anchored to the Goal for the life in the Overleaves and its fulfillment pulls from all layers and dimensions of the Personality, Essence, and Life. The initial triad of Play, Rest, and Study is the first ring of support for the Life Task or Goal of the life, creating the most immediate quadrant.

     

    True Work and Life Task can be used interchangeably, though some of our channels and students prefer differentiating the two. True Work is a listing of suggestions for how to fulfill the Life Task through action, but these suggestions often work against the idea of the Life Task because the list is taken literally and is often given as various occupations. All suggestions for any “True” are meant as just that, suggestions, and not as a limited list of assignments.

     

    All “Trues” are relative to the current Personality and its relationship with Essence, Others, and Life. “Trues” are not static, even within a lifetime. “Trues” are assessed as a collection of factors that include the history of Essence in other Bodies (past lives), the original intent of the Essence for the lifetime, and the current intent of the Personality. Considering all of these factors helps to generate a self-sustaining matrix through which both Essence and Personality can function and manifest within the Physical Plane.

     

    The first quadrant of “Trues” is the Personal Quadrant, or Pillars of Vitality, and they are True Work, True Play, and True Rest, of course (adding the Life Task creates the quadrant). If these are addressed, the Personality co-creates with Essence and feels alive, dynamic, and directed. The awareness and benefit is of the immediate well-being of self. While this quadrant is of use at any point in the process of lifetimes, this quadrant is usually of primary implementation and development during from Mid-Young Soul cycle through Mid-Mature Soul cycle.

     

    The second quadrant of Trues is the Community Quadrant, or Pillars of Harmony. If these are addressed, the Personality and Essence co-create in a way that includes consideration of consequences, impact, and exchanged effects on the self as it exists within a body, environment, and community. These Trues are known as True Home, True Health, and True Spirit. While this quadrant is of benefit to know at any point during the incarnational cycles, it is most often implemented and developed from Mid-Mature to Mid-Old Soul.

     

    True Home is any variable or element within the immediate environment outside of the Body that tends to create an exchange of harmony. True Home can be described as geographical locations or “zones,” or in terms of elements such as general weather, temperature, types of nature, colors, etc. For the most part, True Home may tend to be a combination of two Zones. There are 7 Zones: “Ocean,” “Desert,” “Wilderness,” “Jungle,” “Plains,” “Urban,” and “Mountain.” One does not have to relocate in order to implement the benefit of True Home. If one’s True Home is in the “Desert Zone,” for example, even if one is geographically located in an “Urban Zone,” decorative elements can be used in the immediate environment to draw in the energy of the Desert Zone. In fact, the type of nature, colors, weather, and temperatures that can help to describe True Home could be said to all be extensions from one of the 7 Zones. Creating one’s True Home can help one to feel in harmony with his immediate environment in a way that brings more of Essence and Personality into the community.

     

    True Health is a description using percentages of emphasis that one might consider for optimum physical health in terms of interaction with the environment. These percentages are suggested as divided among 7 categories that describe a physical body’s “diet.” These 7 categories are described by as Exercising, Feeding, Socializing, Sleeping, Schooling, Entertaining, Meditating. One’s True Health may have more of an emphasis of percentage on Feeding, Sleeping, and Socializing as a means to support health, over someone else who might have higher percentages in Schooling, Entertaining, and Meditating. ALL categories are addressed in the daily life of a Personality, but being aware of what most immediately and effectively supports the overall health, one can sustain well-being and balance within the exchanges between the body and community. We can suggest percentages across all 7, but a more practical approach might be to simply be aware that ones True Health could be described as a combination of 2 or 3 categories of emphasis.

     

    True Spirit is one’s medium within an environment for encouraging expression of Essence more fully. There are 7 media: Independently-Mobile Beings (e.g. animals), Dependently-Immobile Beings (e.g. plants), Ritual, Labor, Arts, Technology, and Communication. One’s True Spirit is usually a combination of 2 or 3 media.

     

    There are 7 “zones,” “diets,” and “media” in the above because they are on the level of interaction with environment and community, and this lends itself to a sort of structuring that is unique to this quadrant.

     

    The last quadrant could be described as the Planetary Quadrant, or the Pillars of Transformation. If these are addressed, the Personality and Essence co-create in a way that contributes to the evolution of the self, the planet, and sentience. These are True Love, True Core, and True Gift. While these can be important at any point during a cycle of lives, it is during the Old Soul Age that these begin to feel vital to comprehend.

     

    True Love is a way to help one grasp those factors that come together to generate Agape from Personality and Essence into the world.

     

    True Core is a way to help one grasp those factors that come together for embedding one’s Truth into the world.

     

    True Gift is a way to help one grasp those factors that come together for amplifying one’s Courage into the world.

     

    When any of our students ask us about these 9 Trues, or 3 Quadrants/Pillar groups, our responses are always our interpretation and suggestion, but we encourage our students to validate and discover their own interpretations and suggestions.

     

    Each Quadrant or group of Pillars would do well to have more elaborate attention.

      [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2011]
       
      [tkmppi] Do others of the 9 Pillars have 7 alternatives as True Home does (wilderness, ocean, etc., with the usual M math I presume)? If so, what are they?
       
      [MEntity]
      It is valid that each of the True Work, Play, Study, Love, Core, and Gift can be delineated into 7 broader categories for each, but these would not be as personalized as our choosing more specific terms for you on an individual basis from within those categories.
       
      For instance, True Work *could* be described as being the same as your Goal, but this would lend no insight into that specific Life Task, or methods for implementing that Life Task, even as it may fall under the broader umbrella of Growth, Acceptance, etc.
       
      Or True Play might be understood as relative to your Attitude, and your means of forming Expression; or True Study as relative to your Mode, and your means of igniting Inspiration.
       
      True Love tends to be relative to the Level within Soul Age. True Core tends to be relative to Soul Age. And True Gift tends to be relative to Chief Features (or the means through which one transcends or transforms the Chief Features).
       
      We can delineate these in more detail at another time, but this is a start.

      Centers and Body Types
       
      Note from Janet: Although the intent for the topic was Centers and Body Types, no discussion of Body Types occurred.
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We are here. Hello to all of you.
       
      We will begin with the Energy Report as we see it for the weeks of December 9 through the 22nd.
       
      It is, of course, not a coincidence that many of you have begun discussing the properties and personal experiences of the Centers, as many of you are shifting into next year’s basic Centering at this time. Though a year’s “Overleaves” are not defined entirely and are not static at any given time, there is an overall set that does appear to have influence over varying levels of consciousness, at least symbolically. In the case of Older Souls, that set of influences can begin to take place in the few months before the new year.
       
      We will also note an unusual phenomenon that is occurring for all of you: currently, in such a short time span between them, another larger Nexus Shift occurs. It is not uncommon for great shifts to occur throughout a year, but another shift is beginning on the 10th, and another in January/February, while this is all following the large shift in November. These shifts with little “breaks” between them are creating a great amount of shifting in levels of Energy among your Overleaves and your ability to participate in the world. There appear to be distinct days when your energy seems quite inspired and above normal, while the next few will find you seeming to be locked in an infinite stream of constricting thoughts and low energy. For some this will feel like “limbo,” while for others this can feel “manic.”
       
      The Center for the next year, at this time, appears to be Moving, with bursts of Higher Moving. Unless you are Moving Centered, yourself, this is going to begin to feel like a time of shifting into OBVIOUS manifestations of what you are DOING.
       
      (We remind you that our Energy Reports are not predictions, they are merely comments on patterns and how you might be able to use them or dismiss them.)
       
      Having a field of Moving Centered Energy as the context for a period of time can mean a great deal of attention would be coming to the body and its relationship to its environment. We are speaking of its Physical environment, which can translate into a range from its sources of stimulation, affection, and activity, to its ability to use the finer energies that make up and create the Physical Plane.
       
      Some of you may begin to pull out your old copies of teachings which focus on the concepts of “creating your own reality” and take a more active approach to reality than usual. While others may begin to feel overwhelmed by the “responsibility” that the Moving Centers imply while Physical.
       
      Besides the fact of what you call “the holidays,” a stronger and stronger desire to be with those whom you care for and feel part of will begin to be a priority.
       
      If these basic trends continues and the next year continues with the Moving Centered theme, we will be able to comment more accurately on how it might manifest. For now, a primary theme appears to be those points we just mentioned, along with a heightened awareness of your food intake and ability to literally move (health).
       
      We will conclude the report here and take any questions about it before we discuss the Centers.
       
      [Kathryn] Many of us, myself included, have been feeling very drained and tired or just down lately. Is this the reaction to this energy report influence?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We don't believe the Energy Report itself has any influence as such, but the Energy, itself, we are reporting about may very well be what you are responding/reacting to.
       
      For those who have any kind of health deficiencies, however minute, the Moving Center will markedly “force” the body into a position that is more inclined to facilitate recovery. This can be sleep, mental distraction, high activity, anger, etc., but it’s point is to facilitate recovery.
       
      Another important factor to consider is the inherent nature of any Nexus having a sedating effect on the Human body as realities shift and creativity on another level is affecting the body. You do “create reality,” and that still uses energy. Most of the time, that energy is being held preciously by the Personality for reasons it doesn't even understand. The sedation and “tired phase” allows the “grip” to loosen and your reality can then free up some energy for changes to be made.
       
      Most of you have your Personalities quite in charge of your lives, even if it doesn't quite “know” what to do. When a shift is needed and the Personality is choosing to work with Essence, the Personality will gladly concede and “take a nap.” At some point, in some lifetime, a shift will happen wherein the Personality and Essence are aligned enough that control is not shifted from one to the other, but is shared.
       
      If there are no other questions on the Energy Report, we will discuss CENTERING. We feel there is no need to introduce the Centering to you, as many of you are already fairly studied in this area of our teaching. We will, however, respond to all of your questions about this area so as to clarify and help with the application of the information.
       
      [MaryBV] How does centering affect memory?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      ALL Centers have their form of Memory in storage and retrieval.
       
      The Intellect stores and retrieves memory in the form of Thoughts, Ideas, and is Visually interpreted.
       
      The Emotional memories are stored and retrieved in the form what are commonly understood as Feelings, Emotions, and are Aurally interpreted.
       
      The Moving stores and retrieves its memories in the forms of Health, Activity, and are Sensually interpreted.
       
      Each Center does affect how events are remembered; especially in the mixture of the Centering with the Part.
       
      The Intellect affects the memory with its level of beliefs and justifications; the Emotions affect memory with its sentimentality and attachments; the Moving affects the memory through its levels of vitality and productivity at the time.
       
      For each of these examples above, they are only part of how each Center may affect memory, and those factors always stem from the PRESENT (retrieval), not how or what was stored.
       
      Each Center is involved in Memory, of course, but the habitual Centering will affect how a fragment's memory is used habitually.
       
      Each Ordinal Center is referencing memory of the current lifetime and physicality. If more information outside of that realm is required or resonating, it is then drawn through the Higher of that Center. The Instinctive Center is the communication medium between the Cardinal and Ordinal.
       
      Since the Instinct/Assimilation is usually maintaining the task of protection of the body, most memory filtered there is decidedly fearful or not. This is why most long-standing memories are either decidedly joyful or painful.
       
      We can continue to extrapolate on this topic, but we will ask if we are answering your question appropriate to your intent.
       
      [MaryBV] Well, I should have asked also how the role plays into this, but that is probably a topic for a whole discussion.
       
      [Michael_Entity] The Roles play little part in how memory is used or affected, since each lifetime sets a new design for the body and the Body/Personality is the tool for memory. The Essence's choice of Overleaves is the most direct impact. Since Time is not a factor for Essence, it does not have the need for “memory” as it is experienced on the Physical Plane.
       
      [MaryBV] I see, so what accounts for smell/taste, etc., in memory?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Every Cell and Atom in your body has the ability to “remember,” which means it has the ability to re-create. When the Personality or Body calls on a memory to be reconstructed, it will call on these minute parts of self to participate. It is of no mystery that you can recall a scene in a movie, which is Visual, but it is no more a mystery for the other senses to have that ability to reconstruct, as well.
       
      [WickedBear] Could you discuss the fundamental differences between the two action centers?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      The most fundamental difference is in that the Ordinal pertains to the immediate environment of the Personality and Body, while the Cardinal pertains to all that encompasses that. The Moving Center, then, would govern and process the events of the actual, Physical Body and its health, activity, manipulation of environment, etc. The Higher Moving Center would then govern and process those similar things, but as they pertain to larger patterns that include everything pertaining to the Essence.
       
      It could be said that the Moving Center is the manifestation/expression of that particular Personality's part in the Higher Moving tapestry of the Essence.
       
      [Elf] Is the Part of Center chosen about the same time as the Centering? And what is most influential in that choice?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Centering is chosen by the age of 3 in most cases, while the Part/Trap is a habit by the age of 7 (approximately).
       
      The most influential aspect of that choice is in the major theme then settled on for the lifetime as to how to process events. The Center/Part becomes the Body's primary strength and challenge, and sets the stage for relationships, health, and beliefs for the majority of the life. Depending on your Centering and Part, you will find that your PART/TRAP becomes the defining obstacle to hurdle in coming to peace with a lifetime.
       
      If the balance can be called upon for any Center, regardless of habit, then a great freedom is experienced within the lifetime. The first examination of this is in the 4th Internal Monad when the Part is either simply a Part, or continues to be the Trap. Most will find as the life progresses that the Part becomes the Trap, the more they ignore the need for that third Center to be incorporated. As part of the process for finding that balance, the neglected Center will eventually require attention.
       
      For those lacking in the Moving Center, then health, prosperity, material security, physical need for affection and validation can become stages for its balance.
       
      For those lacking in the Intellectual Center, then over-questioning, overwhelm, isolation, indecisiveness, and unacknowledged dependence on others for direction are examples of where the imbalance can show up.
       
      For those lacking in the Emotional Center, then alienation, hypercriticism, unacknowledged issues of rejection, can tend to be some of the arenas for balance.
       
      [Elf] Thank you. So the Part/Trap of Center is then somewhat a part of the Life Task?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, the Centering/Part are intrinsically linked to the Tasks of the Life. Centering habits tend to define how the Personality uses its 4 “pillars,” of which the Life Task (True Work), is one of those pillars. Your True Rest is directly linked to the use of your neglected Center. Your True Work is directly relating to the Goal.
       
      The Centering/Part is not inherently a challenge to your Life Task, but it is a powerful definition of the path.
       
      And with that, we will conclude. Good Night.

      [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: September 2008]
       
      [Question] I would like clarification re: the 9/12 “Trues”. There are 9 Trues PLUS Life Task/True Work, but the 9 Trues are actually grouped in threes with the True Work to make 3 quadrates. Does that mean there are 3 different aspects to the Life Task/True Work depending on it’s quadrate, thus making 12 Trues, 3 of which are variants of True Work? or is it 9 Trues plus 1 True Work/Life Task? which would make 10 trues . . .
       
      [Michael Entity]
      Both angles of interpretation would work. Technically, there are 9 “Trues” made up of 3 Triads of support for the Life Task in various contexts of “Personal,” “Community,” and “Planetary.” 

      The phrase “True Work” was a kind of shorthand as the original concept was delivered in a consistent way to describe the Personal Quadrate and was interpreted by some as indicating a separate concept from Life Task. However, it is valid to say that the Life Task can be described through various suggestions under a title of “True Work” and each could be more specific to the different Quadrates. 

      In other words, the Life Task would remain the same as an overall arc of description, but methods of action for manifesting the Life Task could be described in terms of True Work on a Personal level, a Community level, and a Planetary level.
       
      [Question] so in a sense all 9 Trues combine together as supportive elements of the Life Task which is the summation of the 9 Trues?
       
      [Michael Entity]
      We describe the three Triads as each supporting the Life Task, but the ultimate pattern is one of progressive, though non-linear, evolution, or pyramidal evolution. Any system of 9 is a pyramidal form of evolution in our system, such as the 9 Needs.
       
      When a fragment’s Life Task tends to be on a Personal Level, the “base” is built from the Personal Quadrate, or Pillars of Vitality. When a fragment’s Life Task tends to be on a Community Level, the base is built from the Community Quadrate, or Pillars of Harmony. When a fragment’s Life Task tends to be on a Planetary Level, the base is built from the Planetary Quadrate, or Pillars of Transformation.
       
      However one “builds” or visualizes this pyramid of evolution, there will be tiers of development that eventually address all Quadrates.
       
      We have much more to say about this subject, but will move on for now.
       
      [NOTE FROM TROY: Michael also shared this image for me as a way to understand this “pyramid,” so I mocked up a copy as best I could. For some of the advanced students, note that the Life Task/True Works are Action; Play, Health, and Core are Expression; Rest, Spirit, and Love are Inspiration; Study, Home, and Gift are Assimilation. See attached image or the image above, if it shows properly. The image isn't static, either, but rotates as necessary or depending on a person's emphasis.]

      [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 2008]
       
      [Question] hello Michael I am curious as to places which project more powerful vibrations, any suggestions?
       
      [Michael Entity]
      In terms of “projecting more powerful vibrations,” we would have to say that there are various ways of responding to that question: there are “powerful vibrations” geographically that are relative to Sentience, relative to Cadres (and Entities), relative to Essence, and relative to Personality. The experience of a “powerful vibration” is contextual and based in resonance, more than what is being emitted from a specific location.
       
      If one is looking for an experience of a “powerful vibration,” it would depend upon which level of resonance one is seeking, such as resonance to Essence, Personality, Cadre, or Sentience? For most, the experience is most tangible when on the level of Personality, but most “powerful” on the level of Essence. By this we mean that within a lifetime, you will go where your Personality chooses to go, regardless of any history beyond this life, and this resonance is tangible: you either hate where you live or love where you live; however, when looking beyond the obvious draw of Personality, there are places that resonate to Essence and this is “powerful,” in that it triggers a vibrational harmony among all lifetimes relative to that particular area (or similar area) that Essence has experienced. Both of these levels of resonance would be determined on an individual basis and not something that could be said for any of you as a group, but we will say that much of what resonates on an Essence Level is closely related to the level of your Cadre, as many of your lifetimes are created in clusters together, geographically.
       
      In your case, it appears your Cadre could be said to find “powerful vibrations” emitting from such geographical locations in certain areas of what are known as “The United States,” particularly in the “midwest” and “north-east” and “north-west;” Greece, Egypt, and Western Asia, but we are speaking in a highly-generalized way here.
       
      This is a subject that could be explored even further in detail from the levels of what could be called “True Home” as this relates to resonance on Personality and Essence Levels, to the resonance on Cadre and Sentient levels, which then begins to include other star systems.
       
      [Question] I have 2 questions now. I have been curious about the energies of the area that I have moved to. The answers to the first question give me much to think about so….what would be the star system that relates to the Manitou Springs area (upper southwest area of the USA, at the base of the Pikes Peak region.) Lots of artisans, musicians, hippies here.
       
      [Michael Entity]
      We would not say that a star system relates to particular geographical areas beyond temporary connections made by those extant at a given time. When we said that star systems were involved as resonant places, we meant this literally and in relation to Cadres and Entities as they began initial lifetimes in those star systems.
       
      In terms of the area you describe, it could be said to be primarily an Emotional Vortex, in that it houses several patterns of energy related to Inspiration, manifested in ways that range from the extremes of water-based weather to the balance of the Intellect through minerals and mountains. Another way of putting it might be that this area is Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part. The resonance here for many is based on an Essence Level. Beyond this, the broader region is Higher Moving in its effect, bringing to Personalities who need it, a resonance and awareness to the Beauty, Energy, and Patterns of the life. Regardless of Role, it could be said that the area attracts those who wish to rejuvenate their relationship to Inspiration through the process of grasping Patterns, Beauty in the life. Most who come to the area are rising out the ashes of chaos, seeking solace in some kind of peaceful order again.
