    Would you define the nature of true giving?

    Kasia

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: June 2001]

     

    [Anne49] would you define the true nature of giving?

     

    [Michael_Entity]
    The true nature of Giving is in creating an Exchange without the fear of “being ripped off.” Giving is not just an active offering of something, but a gauging of the recipient’s capability to receive. To be put simply, True Giving is in the comprehension of Other as they are a part of an Exchange.

     

    True Giving, as an example, includes the allowance of OTHERS to Give what is natural to them. For instance, TOUCH. It is considered a violation in many ways to have a stranger touch you, when in reality it is a form of Giving for you to allow social contact from another fragment. We do not mean for you to reduce your boundaries to allow true violations, but a gentle touch, a bump, a brush against you, is not a violation, they are opportunities. Listening to another fragment without using the exchange as a platform to tell your own stories is another example of True Giving.

     

    Many of you are kind listeners, compassionate, and deeply helpful, but this does not mean you are Giving if your intentions are to “earn” another’s love or to be able to “get them” to listen to you. Many with Self-deprecation are prone to do the latter.

      [Michael_Entity]
      We are here. One moment.
       
      Hello to all of you. We will begin with the Energy Report. This Report is for the weeks running between June 10 and June 23. Recall that our Energy Reports are not based on predictions, but rather, probabilities and momentum of consciousness based on collective choices.
       
      Over the next two weeks, more implementing of a wider circle of contact is the focus. This means more people in interactions with you in some way, either in dreams or in waking state. These fragments are in some way related to a larger picture, however small their contribution to your current perception. Regardless of your age in physicality, and regardless of your psyche relative to your Life Task, it appears to be a year centered around individuals increasing communion and exchange.
       
      The next month or so will bring you into examinations of your Needs involving Exchange, Communion, and Acceptance. In fact, NEEDS, in general, are at a height in examination over the next month or so, whether they are your primary needs or your neglected needs. Though Exchange, Communion, and Acceptance are the themes, all Nine Basic Needs (Security, Acceptance, Freedom, Exchange, Power, Expression, Expansion, Adventure, Communion) will be under examination. The challenge will be between the want to have your Needs fulfilled by fragments in your intimate circle, while the reality requires that any Need can ONLY BE FULFILLED BY YOURSELF. This will mean that you, yourself, may end up in positions that are asking you to fulfill Needs for someone else. This could create opportunities for truth, love, and energy to be infused into a relationship, or an opportunity to displace your responsibilities and “blame” others.
       
      Sensitivity will rise in terms of the fragments involved in your intimate circle, challenging you to choose between recognizing what you are Offering Vs Getting. Your culture supports in the most insidious of ways how to GET, but rarely how to truly Give. This certainly creates a dichotomy within, in regard to what you are to provide yourself Vs what is valid in accepting from external sources.
       
      Over the next two weeks, if you choose, you can examine your behavior in your intimate exchanges. Observe your REACTIONS. Your reactions are your messages over the next couple of weeks, at least in terms of discovering where you are responsible for fulfilling Needs that have been neglected for a time. We define “intimate exchanges” as anything involving conversation, touch, social grace, sex, sharing, eating together, and several other incidences of behavior which gauges another fragment involvement.
       
      As we said, Communion, Exchange, and Acceptance will be the “issues” over the next week, for many. This means it is a very important time to Offer valid sincerity, compassion, and attempts to “see past” the flaws of others.
       
      We will also add that at least 10 of you here have “messages” to collect from “strangers” in the next couple of weeks, regarding your next life steps. We would also venture to call the next couple of Weeks, “Sage Weeks,” meaning it is a time to view everyone as children, regardless of behavior and to trust in the “flaws” you see in others and yourself. It will be a time to allow room for major “mistakes” created by yourself or others, if you choose. Celebrate the many varied ways others express themselves, even if you “wish” for someone's change in behavior or someone is expecting a scripted behavior from you. The energy is available as support for experiences of true Exchange, Communion, and Acceptance, again, if you choose to utilize it.
       
      The most pivotal, powerful tool you will have over the next couple of weeks is a smile. We do not mean this in a trivial way.
       
      The Energy Report is commented on enough that we may move on, or take questions regarding it. Questions?
       
      [MaryBV] Would it harm us to know who will receive a message from a stranger?
       
      [Michael_Entity] No
       
      [MaryBV] Hahahah, ok who?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Anne, Annette, “nelson,” David, Ludmila, Marion, Troy, Lawrence, Leela, Mary. This is not conclusive, but a picture of the momentum at this point. There are “messages” for all of you; pivotal. It simply happens that the ten mentioned are in positions that allow contact with more of a “stream” of people through their various environments.
       
      [Anne49] would you define the true nature of giving?

      [Leela] My question relates to something that happened a little while ago. I am curious about the press conference called by high-level NASA and other government officials about extraterrestrial contact. How much of this was accurate, and will we see any real results of this?
       
      [Michael_Entity] The conference was valid and addressed many issues known and unknown to the participants previous to the exchange. There are some “serious” issues to be dealt with within the “higher governments” and NASA as you prepare for eventual revelations. Contact with off-planet species has been known to many in positions of “power” for over 50 years. There are fewer and fewer ways to “protect” the public, especially with the advent of faster and wider means of communication and research. Your world is almost as “small” as it will ever be, so these issues must be addressed if there is going to be any sense of “control” by those in positions of knowledge. You will see results of this conference, with the release of carefully regulated pieces of information, first with allusions, then with revelations. We, ourselves, have been “waiting” for a formal announcement of revelation for quite some time, as we have seen many fragments “pushing” to make it possible. Your world is almost ready to believe.
       
      [Liiona24] Is there any real intention to allow drilling for oil off the coast of Florida or is this being stages between the brothers to allow Jeb Bush look good when he “fights” his brother and “wins?” Cynical view perhaps, of what could be going on.
       
      [Michael_Entity] There is real intention to drill. Its probability is at 57%. There is no political conspiracy behind it, simply what some might call ignorance.
       
      [xyzlorenzo] Mormon roots are showing… can you tell me overleaves for Joseph Smith and just a little blurb about the his and the Mormon faith's significance to world affairs?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Joseph Smith: Early Mature Priest/Server, Artisan Cast, Acceptance, Passion, Idealist, Arrogance (double), Intellectual/Emotional.
       
      Mormonism is a mature soul religion as opposed to the baby soul religions such as Christianity and Hinduism. Its focus is on acceptance and inclusion, but its roots are heavily weighed down by Arrogance. The philosophy is still within the parameters of Baby Soul behavior, but with a broader definition of what is acceptable. There is still an emphasis on negative poles, even in the focus being Acceptance, as the focus is on Ingratiation, not Agape.
       
      In terms of its “significance to world affairs,” it is simply another religion. Religion, in general, is losing its footing in positions of power and authority as more Mature Souls question themselves.
       
      [clavis] Could Michael comment on which stage of the 4th IM that I'm going through? And how to stay on the positive pole through the process (the 4th IM)? Thanks.
       
      [Michael_Entity] We do not comment on personal situations in public chats; however, we will include a response to this, sent to you privately, when the transcript goes out. We will say you are at the 3rd Stage.
       
      [JNelson] (From my mom) How can I differentiate between past life recall and imagination?
       
      [Michael_Entity] They are the same. Imagination is incorrectly distrusted, when in reality it is your highest form of contact with various non-physical aspects of life. There IS a difference between delusion and perception, however. Delusion requires you to enforce a vision, while a memory of a past life, or perception, “happens.”
       
      [JNelson] But can't you create things completely original with your imagination?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Yes, you can create something completely original with imagination. Past Life Recall, as we said, “happens,” while creativity is actively pursued, which can lead to delusions. If you are seeking recall, for instance, in meditation, your differentiation will be more difficult, but the validity can come in the determination of the “past life's” significance NOW. If you are more entertained than empowered, it is more likely delusion. If there is relevance and meaning even if only symbolically to you NOW, then it is more than likely a Past Life Recall in some form. We refrain from saying “it might be your imagination,” simply because Imagination is a large context that includes both delusion and memory/perception. Most of your own memories within a lifetime are based on Imagination. Most valid past lives, though, as they become available and however vague, will have direct relevance to your life. They are recalled for a reason. Active pursuit of past lives can lead to delusion, only because most have expectations and scripts for what they must experience.
       
      [JNelson] I am interested in how The Book of the Law was channeled by Aleister Crowley. Would Michael care to explain who/what Crowley was channeling and possibly comment on Crowley's teachings and abilities as a whole?
       
      [Michael_Entity]:
      We will include our response in the transcript, but will conclude here, for tonight.
       
      [added response]
       
      The fragment known as Aleister Crowley (a Final Level Young Priest, Artisan Casting) was simply “channeling” his own Essence and Personality's ideals. Much of the interpretations are distortions from the original intentions, but his goal was ultimate empowerment of the individual, along with the encouragement that all was ultimately “safe”.
       
      Good night.

      ENERGY REPORT
      November 2010

      November continues the general exploration of Self-deprecation and Arrogance so that all issues of Self-esteem are coming to the surface for many, even if these issues are not usually yours. Issues of insecurity, exposure, judgement, appearance, vulnerability, adequacy, specialness, uniqueness, meaning, importance, etc. will most likely come up for examination, not only on individual levels, but in communities, companies, and countries. This appears to be manifesting as awkwardness, uncertainty, and some anxiety, especially in terms of commitments and long-term agendas and visions. For the next few weeks, it may seem as if all of your ideas and intentions have lost focus, or are in need or recalibrating, and it may seem a bit overwhelming. However, it is important to note that this time period is emphasizing your need and necessity for COMFORTING.

      Many of you move along in your life at a pace and a focus that presumes there is no time, space, or energy available to simply reassure you that “everything is going to be okay.” It is over the month of November that your recognition of that need can be shared, displayed, and mutually-exchanged with others in a way that may surprise you with great relief. You are not alone in this. Many of our students, and in fact, people in general, would find a tremendous weight lifted from their minds, hearts, and bodies when they open up to one another that it would be nice to be comforted, reassured, and that being scattered, overwhelmed, and awkward about life right now is “normal.” No one can guarantee your safety, and no one can guarantee that you are on “the right path,” or that you are making the “right choices,” but it will never be a lie to hear from yourself, or from another, that “everything WILL be okay.”

      For the Older Souls, it will not sound so absurd for us to point out that the “worst” that can happen to you in this life is that you suffer and/or die, but that even those are temporary, with “being okay” always beyond it. With that in mind, even we can assure you that everything will be okay.

      Keep in mind that many of you “suffer” only from your processes of comparison, which is at the heart of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. Comparing circumstances, body types, standards, goals, accomplishments, relationships, behaviors, etc., is intended to be a tool for helping one to see how and where to improve, change, or replace these things, if you choose to do so, but it is not intended to be used as a means to undermine your current circumstances, body type, standards, goals, etc. Unless you are being held against your will in captivity, then you are who you are, where you are, and how you are because it is serving you in some capacity, and if you wish to change these things, it takes time, space, and energy to do so.

      For most of you, if you were to look at your life with an honest assessment, there is actually very little to complain about, and you are in rather acceptable, if not great, conditions. This is not a discouragement against complaining, as to complain, or not, would be a choice you must make. We merely point out that many of you only have complaints because of comparisons, not conditions.

      Embracing and accepting where you are with yourself, with your body, with your life, and with your relationships is not a conclusive embrace, but a kind return to your own terms, an ownership of your own choices, and an encouragement of trust for yourself. As you embrace what IS your life, it becomes easier and more delightful to aim toward your ideals because then you have a stability, a healthy pace, and you are able to extract what it is that is serving you in your current patterns. This, then, is Gratitude, the antidote to complaining, unnecessary suffering, and a most powerful tool for returning you to the driver’s seat of your life, so to speak.

      Helpful thoughts over November might be:

      1) COMPARISONS ARE TO HELP NAVIGATE, NOT UNDERMINE
      Comparing others to yourself, or yourself to others, and presuming a standard against which you or others must comply, is helpful for your choice-making, improvements, and navigation, but is not as helpful when used to impose suffering or complaining.

      2) EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY
      Confusion, disappointment, disorientation, distraction, uncertainty, insecurity, ill health, loss, etc. can never stand in the way of your eventually “being okay.” You WILL eventually be okay, but the more you are on board with that truth, the more tangible, present, and participatory you are in creating or allowing yourself to be okay again.

      3) GIVING AND RECEIVING COMFORT IS A NATURAL RIGHT
      It is never necessary to feel shame or resistance when desiring, asking for, giving, or accepting comfort. The Physical Body requires food, water, and air for its nutrition; the Emotional Body requires affection, nurturing, and intimacy for its nutrition; the Intellectual Body requires paradox, experience, and comprehension for its nutrition; and the Spiritual Body requires philosophy, intuition, and beauty for its nutrition. Of course, these words can be replaced, and the lists extended for each Body, but COMFORT can be given and received within any of these contexts, and in so doing, affects all of the Bodies.

      4) GRATITUDE IS A STEP, NOT JUST A STATE
      Gratitude is an active process of regaining your wits, your footing, and your presence by embracing what you normally take for granted, judge, or dismiss, which frees up a tremendous amount of energy that could be used for creating more to your liking.

      DATES OF INTEREST
      The final week of November may find most of our students lurching into high activity, internally and externally, and the strange limbo of the first few weeks will have been lifted as focus returns, comfort is more readily available, and over-thinking/over-analyzing dissipates. There is no Nexus this month, but there is a convergence of energies among fragments as “the holidays” unfold, and prompts many of you toward Agreements, Karma, and social exchanges that can help to “get you out of yourself.”
