    Realist Attitude

    KurtisM

    [Excerpt from Energy Report: July 2014]

     

    Reality is often divided between what is real to yourself, and what is real to everyone. Some lean toward emphasis on only what is real to themselves, and others tend to lean toward what is real to everyone.

     

    For example, if there is a railing lining a boardwalk, it is real to everyone. It just is. There is no one who will come to that boardwalk without that railing being a part of the reality. If they come to the boardwalk where there is no railing, they are in a different reality. There is a consistency in what is a shared reality that is not dependent upon beliefs, upon individuals, and upon expectations. It just is.

     

    And then there is the individual reality that is based upon interpretation, experience, history, fears, expectations, beliefs, etc. So that very same railing that just “is” can also be offensive to some, and beautiful to others because of personal aesthetics. If two people bang into the railing, one will simply own his stumbling into it and move on, while another will be angry and blame the railing for being of poor design and in the way.

     

    So that single object exists just as it is, and then it also exists as it is experienced and interpreted. That is the simplified range of “reality."

     

    For the Realist, it is an on-going practice to reconcile those two fairly distinct points within the range of reality. Most Realists will choose one over the other, particularly in younger Soul Ages, but in the older Soul Age, it becomes important to reconcile one's personal experience of reality with the reality, itself. And this is what is meant by the Poles that make up the Attitude of Realist, with its Positive Pole of Objectivity, and Negative Pole of Subjectivity.

     

    As with all of our system, “negative” only describes a more limited, restricted end of the spectrum, while “positive” only describes a more expansive, inclusive end of the spectrum. When one is in Subjectivity, one can only interpret reality in term of what it means to himself. It does not matter what it means on its own, or to anyone else. When one is in Objectivity, the personal experience is allowed, but does not usurp or eclipse the validity of the independent reality or the reality of others’. If a Realist in the Positive Pole bangs into the railing, he will allow himself his reaction, note the personal reality of that experience that was probably painful, but also just note that it was a railing. He bumped into it. That is all that happened.

      OMW: Year Review
       
      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We are here now.
       
      The workshop requested today is that of consciously reviewing your year of experiences so that you may carry with you into the next year that which is of benefit to you, and release that which is not. This process of Review happens on a Personality Level almost-yearly, but almost always subconsciously, and not with a great deal of comprehension.
       
      There are various levels of Reviews that happen, as signified by some of the planetary Returns in your Astrology, such as the Jupiter and Saturn Returns, and also by any collective Instinctive Centered Year, or major events and choices in your life. In short, Reviews are happening "all the time" in some form, but it usually takes a major event to truly bring comprehension of that Review.
       
      Unless you use your power of Choice to bring a Review into comprehension at will.
       
      The Review process that we will discuss today is one based upon your Choice, your willingness. It is a conscious Review.
       
      Time periods or recurring events (such as holidays) are excellent markers for taking a moment to Review, and the end/beginning of a year is usually quite significant to most.
       
      We will define "Review" here as: the process of awareness, integration and comprehension of experiences. Awareness is the Intellectual recall of experience. Integration is the extraction of meaning from experience, or the Emotional/Inspirational element. And Comprehension is the building from those experiences, or the Action element.
       
      What most lifetimes/Personalities tend to do is to leave a trail of experiences that are then gathered up only after the death of the body. The cliche that "people never really change" is based upon this, because most fragments while incarnated in a Personality really do not change in any discernible way, because there is a great lack of Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension of Experiences.
       
      Most lifetimes tend to be a series of consumed experiences that do not get fully processed. To put this into perspective: imagine that a lifetime equals 100% Experience. Most fragments, while in a body, are Aware of only 10% at most, Integrate only half of that 10% at most, and Comprehend even less. In other words: 90% of what is gained from a lifetime of Experiences comes AFTER the lifetime ends. A lifetime of experiences over a 70 to 100 year span bringing only 3% Comprehension leaves the Personality at the end of the lifetime feeling quite bewildered with "where the time went," what he or she did with his or her life, etc.
       
      If Review were a regular part of the lifetime in Comprehensive ways, or if this were considered a valid and vital part of educational systems, lifetimes would look very different. That being said, it is also a glorious luxury that a Personality is NOT required to Review. YOU get to LIVE. That is all you have to do, if that.
       
      It is not your responsibility, nor is it particularly appealing to go into Review on any regular basis during a lifetime. The opportunities are there, and sometimes they are vital (signified most of the time by near-death experiences prompting Review), but they are not required. However, as the Soul Ages, and the Personalities grow more and more conscious during the living of a lifetime, manifesting Essence more and more, the process of Review becomes quite an interesting prospect. YOU want to Review because YOU equals Essence. "You" always equates Essence, but not always consciously, which is the differentiation between "manifesting Essence" and not.
       
      Today, then, we will share with you ways that you can Review using tools that are useful as Personality, as well as methods that are used by Essence, usually reserved for after death.
       
      Before we go into those, we will first suggest the methods for settling into your Review. You do not have to do these during this workshop.
       
      Draw from memory at least 3 significant events of your past year. There are always 3 or more, whether you realize that or not. There a multitude, in fact, but in terms of memory, there should always be available at least 3 with which will come to AWARENESS. Divide your previous year into four sections of three months each (i.e., Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sep, Oct-Dec). To the best of your memory, determine in which section the events occurred.  
      [Martha] event meaning some particular occurrence, or could it be some longer term theme/project etc?
       
      MEntity:
      Martha, "significant" is the key here. It could have been a moment, it could have been a project, it could have been a word, it could have been a day, etc. The degree of significance to you is what is important. By "significant," we mean that it meant something to you that stayed with you in some way. If it was a long-term event of significance, it can be noted as to where it began, but it can also be noted as to which sections it spanned. By just doing these steps, you have worked through the Awareness and Integration elements of Review. The next steps, then, will have more immediate significance and resonance, if this process works for you, as your examples can be worked with.
       
      A continuation on the Integration element:
       
      The four sections of the year are now labeled by the Overleaf emphasis that the season tends to bring with it. This may be different for those in the different Hemispheres, and whether the climate is rather steady, or not, there will still be these "seasons." For simplistic purposes, we will describe the climates where most of our students are, and this can then be translated appropriately.
       
      Jan-Mar=Winter=GOAL Apr-Jun=Spring=MODE Jul-Sep=Summer=ATTITUDE Oct-Dec=Fall=CHIEF FEATURES  
      Obviously, these are not exact to the shifts in Seasons, and in fact there are more "seasons" when technically speaking, but this is a symbolic mapping that need not be confused with more technical differences.
       
      [Maureen] Is it your personal Overleaves in effect or is this only the "effect" of the yearly, transiting Overleaves?
       
      MEntity:
      In extreme climates that transcend the more "traditional" shifts in insolation for the year, such as closer to the poles and equator, we would still suggest dividing up your year for Review as suggested, as it is symbolic, as we said, but there are some differences in your process that we will address. There a multitude of ways to define "seasons" on the planet, so we will use this mapping that helps to cover the point of Review, rather than as a way to describing shifting temperatures and cycles of the planet, itself.  In your identifying where in your "seasons" your significant events occurred, you have gained insight into which of your Overleaves was being activated as a primary process for that event.
       
      If your significant event occurred in Jan-Mar, it is directly and most-significantly linked to your GOAL. If your significant event occurred in Apr-Jun, it is directly, and most-significantly, linked to your MODE. And so on.
       
      To expand upon these:
       
      GOAL = the state or quality that every action in your life is aimed at comprehending. MODE = the method through which you access inspiration, and use that for developing Relationships. ATTITUDE = the means through which you communicate/express yourself to your world, and interpret the communication and expressions from your world. CHIEF FEATURES = the habits used to protect yourself from presumed dangers and threats to any of the above.  
      All of this falls into the elaboration for Step Three, by the way.
       
      [Maureen] So if you went into "action" during the Oct-Dec time period -- would that be in "reaction" to your Chief Features?
       
      MEntity: We do not understand your question.
       
      [Maureen] If this time period is related to the CFs -- and you "act" or create at that time -- is this related to the Cfs?
       
      MEntity:
      No. When we get into examples, this may be clearer.
       
      Before we continue, we will take one of you as an example for how to utilize step three, and help you walk through the assessment. Who will volunteer? Just one, for now.
       
      [Maureen] me?
       
      MEntity: Yes, Maureen.
       
      [Maureen] do you want me to give you what I have?
       
      MEntity: Share one significant event and in what time frame it occurred.
       
      [Maureen] OBSERVATION, PASSION/RESERVE, REALIST, CFs (STUBBORNNESS, SELF-DEP, IMPATIENCE): People “insisting/wanting” to pay me Apr-Jun($), Jul-Aug(barter), Oct-Dec($).
       
      MEntity: So that we are clear: these are the same events of significance, occurring at different points in the year?
       
      [Maureen] yes - similar events / so the "same' – yes
       
      MEntity:
      This would then count as ONE significant event, even if it is cycles or repetition, and we would go with where it began: in the realm of your MODE. However, it will still "mean something" that it occurred in these other seasons, and we can address that. The arcing of significance, though, would be in that this is a Significant Event regarding Inspiration, your Mode, and Relationships.
       
      Our walkthrough with you will lead to step FOUR) Comprehension. What will lead to Comprehension, is the full Integration from step THREE, which is making sense of what this means to you.
       
      In this case, having the symbolic context of your Mode, Inspiration, and Relationships, it seems almost "too obvious" that this Significant Event is a process that is inviting you to relate in ways that bring the circuit of Inspiration to a wholeness in your Relationships regarding your services. It was an opportunity for you to Comprehend that your services have value that, while difficult to quantify, CAN be quantified in a way that helps that Comprehension. Therein lies the Comprehension, or Step Four: you are PART of the equation of value, not the entire equation, in a Relationship, in any terms of exchange.
       
      In terms of your own Mode of Observation, then, it would mean that this Significant Event should be glaring, obvious, and clear, and if it is rejected, you are not seeing clearly, or refusing to see clearly what is so obvious.
       
      [Maureen] I can see it – lol
       
      MEntity:
      Yes, you can.
       
      And by using this Review, you can then build from the Experience in a way that changes you, rather than hints at possibilities that you refuse, deny, or resist.
       
      Does all of this make sense to you?
       
      [Maureen] yes it does
       
      MEntity: Another example from another student is requested. Yes, Janet. Share as Maureen shared.
       
      [Janet] I participated in a dance competition in June, first in many years. I did not do well for a variety of reasons. But it haunts me now. I'm in Power mode. Might be my self-dep that alters my impressions of it now.
       
      MEntity: What part of June? The closer to July, the more one would want to consider the next" season" as well; in this case, the Attitude.
       
      [Janet] Mid-June. But I am Stoic.
       
      MEntity: NOTE: Any Significant Event that resides on the cusp of a "season" would do well to consider the context next to it.
       
      [Janet] And goal of Dominance to complete the sequence...
       
      MEntity:
      A fair span of consideration for a cusp is 3 days before the next context.
       
      In assessing your Significant Event, Janet, one would consider the event in context: in your case, in the context of Power Mode. Keeping in mind that "MODE = the method through which you access inspiration, and use that for developing Relationships," and that Power Mode is about relating through your degree of PRESENCE, we can begin to extract the significance of this event, or Integrate it.
       
      In this case, you went on full display, not only for others to see, but for you to see, just how PRESENT you are with yourself. Were you fully merged into the movements of your dance? Were you present with yourself *as a dancer*, or were you distracted by your past performances as a dancer, or your future assessment as a dancer?
       
      [Janet] Oh bingo
       
      MEntity: This is significant to you because it let you see where you are in your use of that Mode, in your use of Power, in your willingness to Be Present (in relationships).
       
      [Janet] So if you do not or cannot make full use of your mode, you may miss opportunities? Is this a way of evaluating how to approach future events?
       
      MEntity:
      And therein lies your Comprehension, or Step Four. That you fall into Oppression of yourself to protect yourself from the presence and power of others, rather than stand in your own Authority and confidence with whatever, however, and wherever you are with yourself NOW.
       
      [Janet] Very valid. And in retrospect all my previous good showings at comps made full use of Power mode. I see it now.
       
      MEntity:
      You will always make "full use" of your Mode. It is your Mode. It is functioning in one way or another, be it in Authority, or in Oppression.
       
      The key here is in your Conscious Review: continue to condemn your performance and lose all useful meaning (Integration) from it, or retroactively allow THAT PERFORMANCE to be OKAY. Take back your Authority, and bring yourself back to you (Presence), by understanding that it was its own performance, and not a defining moment the wipe out all other performances, past, future, or present.
       
      [Janet] A most helpful Review. Thank you.
       
      [Maureen] So is that how the CFs come into "play" -- at the end of the year? As we look back we "assign" a "negative" or "positive" reaction/response to our events?
       
      MEntity:
      Maureen, that is valid. The "season" of Chief Features tends to be when most do any kind of Review, but when done without Consciousness, there tends to come only a review of what went wrong, what needs to change, what you will do differently, etc. And then the cycle perpetuates in the new year.
       
      [Maureen] and I just saw Janet "shift" -- so if you allow yourself to shift from a "negative" to a "positive" view you can pull your OLs into the positive?
       
      MEntity: Yes, Maureen; it is an immediate effect.
       
      [Janet] But is it also valid to use what you know about the seasonal impact of the overleaves to prepare yourself for a coming event?
       
      MEntity: Janet, because this mapping is based in Review, it tends to be the case that it is only useful in retrospect, rather than in anticipation.
       
      [Janet] Ah. But I imagine some awareness won't hurt in the future.
       
      MEntity: However, knowing the "seasonal emphasis" can help you to gauge your anticipated events in a way that then allows for more immediate Integration from within the Experience.
       
      [Janet] I can see that.
       
      MEntity:
      For instance, had you known about this before your dance, you could have brought a consciousness to your dance that embraced your Power and presence. But that is also a realization that one can make at any time of the year.
       
      When your Reviews are only based upon what went wrong, what needs to change, etc, then it tends to be the case that your entire next year begins with Actions/Goals that stem from disappointment, failings, etc, and the stories repeat in many ways then. When you are RELATING, consider your Mode. When you are fulfilling intentions, consider your GOAL. When you are socializing and communicating, consider your ATTITUDE. and so on.
       
      What we have shared so far is a symbolic mapping of your Year in Review that helps you to bring Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension. Keep in mind that nearly all of what you have labeled as "significant events" comes with great benefit, if Comprehended. When there is lack of Comprehension, even the best of events can be dismissed. When Comprehension is involved, everything is amazing and beneficial.
       
      However, it is not lost on Essence that many events of significance simply cannot be Comprehended while within the confines of time and space, and in those instances, the freedom you give yourself NOT to comprehend (until you can) is a Comprehension in itself.
       
      To clarify our mapping of the year, the reason Chief Features are assigned to Fall, is that it is an Assimilative time of year, and therefore brings up the Instinctive Center, which often prompts fears. Assimilation is a process of filtering and organizing experiences, and this often means letting things die for the sake of rebirth, if you will.
       
      What we have shared with you is a process that is a crude parallel to how Essence Reviews an entire lifetime, except in far more detail and analysis, but your participation while from "inside" the life adds a level of profundity to afterlife Review that can only come from your participation now.
       
      Imagine the difference between walking a path through a grove of fruitful trees carrying a basket for collecting those ripened fruits, and taking time to eat many of them along the way, versus walking through that same path without a basket, and only carrying a few fruits in hand, able to maybe eat part of one along the way. The basket and the eating are your Awareness and Integration, which naturally lead to Comprehension, or a full basket at the end of the life. To continue with our metaphor, it would be similar to handing over whatever fruits are in your arms at the time, but leaving many uncollected. Some fragments "hand over their fruits" as their arms fill, and some just keep piling on top until older fruits drop off, and only recent fruits are then collected, or the other way around.
       
      [GeraldineB] What about the ongoing Reviews with Essence, i.e., the 7-year Review?
       
      MEntity: Geraldine, in most instances of Review, it is merely an uploading process, if you will, for Essence to sort through. It is not a Comprehension on the level of Personality.
       
      [Oscar] Do Scholars collect more due to their more frequent uploading?
       
      MEntity:
      Oscar, in keeping with the metaphor, Scholars come with their very own truck, but again, their collecting and uploading does not equate Comprehension.
       
      To share with you more creative, Personality-based Review, one can also use such things as intentional synchronicities, or oracles. Creating a layout for a Tarot Card reading of your year can be helpful. Looking at significant Transits in your Astrology can be helpful. Casting Runes, etc.
       
      [Janet] I'm sorry but what is an "intentional synchronicity"?
       
      MEntity: Janet, we used that phrase to describe the intent for a system of randomness to act as a representation or reflection of specifics.
       
      [Janet] Oh, like tarot cards or the like.
       
      MEntity: That is an example, yes.
       
      [hanna3175] iching!
       
      MEntity:
      Correct.
       
      Intentional Synchronicity. The intentional aspect is important, as it defines the circuit used for symbolic communication. Anything can be used when using Intentional Synchronicity. This is how dreams and omens can become significant to some. It is a valid means of establishing a language between Personality and Essence, or "the universe," etc.
       
      [Maureen] The question posed "creates" the answer -- that is why the "question" is so important -- even with you Michael!
       
      MEntity:
      Even the arrangements of toppings on a pizza can be "read," if there is a system defined/intended. Tea Leaf reading is no different from reading toppings on a pizza, for that matter. This process is a use of the Higher Moving Center, or the capacity for extracting Beauty. The ability to recognize patterns from within randomness. It is a skill that requires honesty, however, because it can also lead to "seeing" anything in everything.
       
      In conclusion today:  By using the map we have described, and the steps for moving through Awareness, Integration, and Comprehension, you can begin your 2012 on a higher cycle, if you choose, rather than as a repeated cycle, or as an extended cycle. By "higher cycle" we simply mean that it continues to build upon what has come, rather than circles back to it.
       
      We will work with Troy in sharing in our next Open Monthly Workshop then just how one might start a higher cycle after a Comprehensive Review.
       
      NOTE: in your process of Review, we suggest taking your time, playing with various ways of understanding your significant event in terms of how it benefited you, and not simply making note of them and then discarding the process if it is frustrating. It can be daunting, we know, but it is an exercise of a "muscle" that is latent and fairly ignored, so it will not always seem easy or fun, at first. If you find you are not making any sense of your Review, or not getting to your point of Comprehension, as revealed by a sense of relief, "a-ha" moment, or enthusiasm, then set it down and come back to it later.
       
      Your life will still be there.

      Les Attributs dans la vie quotidienne

      Traduction d’une causerie avec l’Entité Michael (EM) le 13 janvier 2008

      Canal : Troy Tolley

      Source anglaise : https://our.truthloveenergy.com/topic/37-michael-speaks-january-2008/?tab=comments#comment-96. Le texte ci-bas a aussi été adapté du livre anglais « The Book of the Books », 2018.
      Entité Michael (EM)
      Bonjour à tous. Nous sommes ici. Nous avons été invités à développer les Attributs d'une manière qui pourrait ajouter davantage de "dimension" et de contexte pour leur utilisation pratique, et nous allons le faire. Ce que nous avons généralement partagé à propos des Attributs, « n’est que le début ». 

      Nous allons partager avec vous aujourd’hui, comment ces Attributs se manifestent dans les contextes de base de votre existence quotidienne; comment être plus conscient des Attributs d’une manière qui peut être observée et comment ils peuvent ensuite être utilisés de manière plus consciente dans d'autres contextes où ils peuvent ne pas être aussi évidents.
      Nous allons commencer par le But.

      Si vous avez toujours voulu observer le plus clairement votre But en action, cet Attribut est le plus évident dans le contexte de votre VIE EXTÉRIEURE. Nous entendons par là que cet Attribut est ce que vous utilisez comme motivation derrière tous vos choix qui sont en relation avec le monde extérieur, la vie en général. 
      Dans ce contexte, on pourrait dire que le But est l’Attribut qui décrit ce que vous recherchez dans le monde en termes d'expérience; ou plus précisément, le But décrit ce que vous souhaitez rapporter de vos expériences. Il ne décrit pas ultimement le COMMENT ou le SI, mais il décrit le QUOI.

      Par exemple, si votre But est l'Acceptation, ceci signifie que toute expérience tirée de votre journée peut être reliée à ce But particulier et que c’est une bonne chose que de chercher à voir comment cela décrit ce QUE vous avez recherché dans vos choix au cours de la journée à partir du contexte général de votre vie externe.

      On pourrait dire aussi que le But résonne avec le Centre Actif et l’Axe de l’Action. 
      Nous partageons avec vous cette résonnance avec l’Axe pour jeter une base pour l’information que nous partagerons dans le futur, car nous allons éventuellement passer à travers chaque But (et Mode, Attitude, etc.) et de ce que chaque Attribut signifie à la lumière de cette information. Nous partageons également ces résonnances, non seulement pour référence future, mais pour votre propre exploration plus avant, à mesure que vous établissez des liens et des références croisées à travers ces résonances.

      Nous inclurons également ici que le But peut être considéré comme votre méthode d’entrée dans le monde en termes de PROJETS. Dans ce cas-ci, "projets" est utilisé comme un terme clé pour vous aider à simplifier le point général de votre motivation initiale à accéder au monde de l’expérience.

      Ensuite, nous parlerons du Mode.

      On pourrait dire que le Mode est votre entrée dans votre monde des RELATIONS. Si vous voulez comprendre pleinement comment se manifeste votre Mode, vous pouvez plus facilement le voir dans le contexte des Relations, ou plus précisément dans le monde de l'INTIMITÉ. 
      Dans ce cas-ci, nous définissons "l'Intimité" comme étant votre méthode de résonance à quelque chose au-delà de vous. C'est pourquoi le Mode est souvent décrit comme "comment vous vous y prenez pour atteindre le But", car votre relation à l'expérience (votre But) est elle-même une relation, qui est donc décrite par votre Mode.

      Les Modes résonnent avec le Centre Émotionnel et l'Axe de l'Inspiration.

      Le Mode en résonance avec le Centre Émotionnel implique précisément que les Modes concernent les PERCEPTIONS, ce qui affecte grandement votre interprétation de l’AUTRE dans les relations; les Perceptions sont le pôle positif du Centre Émotionnel. En outre, la Résonance des Modes avec l’Axe de l’Inspiration contribuera à éclairer la dynamique requise pour l’NSPIRATION et son fonctionnement pour chacun d’entre vous.

      Il convient également de noter que nous ne limitons pas la résonance de ces Attributs aux Centres Inférieurs, mais incluons également les Centres Supérieurs, bien que nous souhaitons nous concentrer sur les Centres Inférieurs mais uniquement pour des raisons de tangibilité et de commodité, et non parce les Centres Supérieurs sont exclus. 
      En d'autres termes, on pourrait dire que les MODES sont comment on pourrait éventuellement manifester l'AMOUR dans sa vie, ou le Centre Émotionnel Supérieur. De plus, le BUT pourrait être comment on pourrait dire que l’on manifeste la BEAUTÉ, ou l’Énergie, dans sa vie, car il résonne avec le Centre Actif Supérieur. 
      Par "Beauté" et "Énergie", dans ce cas-ci, nous voulons dire que l'on apporte un sens de configuration à ses expériences et que l’on commence à voir cette configuration comme parfaite et belle, et non pas aléatoire et chaotique, ou imposée.

      Ensuite, nous parlerons de l'Attitude.

      On peut dire que l’Attitude est votre entrée dans le monde de la COMMUNICATION. Elle se manifeste généralement le plus dans le domaine de la SOCIALISATION, ou dans tout domaine d'échange d'informations. 
      L’Attribut décrit comment on communique avec les autres par le biais de la philosophie personnelle principale choisie pour cette vie. Il décrit également comment on ÉCOUTE, ou entend, en termes de Communication, car il est assez difficile de communiquer en dehors de votre position philosophique personnelle. 
      En d’autres termes, si l’on est Idéaliste, on pourra dire que la Communication aura tendance à pencher vers la philosophie de l’AMÉLIORATION. Cela ne signifie pas que l'on ne peut pas échanger en dehors de cette philosophie, mais que lorsqu'un Idéaliste est pleinement présent, la communication est orientée vers cette philosophie, dirigeant toute l’expression et la réception à travers l’Idéal

      Les Attitudes résonnent aussi avec le Centre Intellectuel et l’Axe de l’Expression. Par association, cela signifie également que les Attitudes décrivent comment on communique sa VÉRITÉ, car les Attitudes résonnent également avec le Centre Intellectuel Supérieur. 
      On pourrait alors dire que toutes les communications passent par cet Attribut pour aider à évoluer, questionner, développer, transformer, mettre à jour, etc. les concepts de Vérité pour cette vie. À cet égard, on peut voir que cet Attribut peut tendre à être le plus évident dans les situations sociales, car ce contexte permet souvent de mettre en lumière la manière dont on exprime sa vérité, la cache ou la protège.

      Ensuite, nous parlerons du Rôle.

      On pourrait dire que le Rôle résonne avec votre VIE INTERNE. C'est qui vous êtes "à la fin de la journée", quand vous êtes seul et "faites un rattrapage avec vous-même".  
      C'est la partie de vous qui est utilisée pour donner un sens à "tout cela". C'est la partie de vous qui digère et emmagasine les expériences, les communications, les intimités du jour, de l'année et de la vie.

      Rappelez-vous qu'Essence et ROLE sont deux termes très distincts, bien qu'ils soient facilement utilisés de façon interchangeable. C’est la raison pour laquelle nous parlons en termes de « Rôle en Essence », car le Rôle est un Attribut que l’Essence a choisi pour ce cycle de vies.

      Le Rôle résonne avec le Centre Instinctif et l’Axe de l’Assimilation car il s’agit de la partie qui se répète d’une vie à l’autre.

      On pourrait dire que c'est l'Attribut qui demande à la fin de la journée: "Qu'est-ce que tout cela signifie pour moi? Comment tout cela contribue-t-il à mon évolution? Pourquoi ai-je fait les choix que j'ai faits?"

      C’est également le tout premier niveau à partir duquel TOUS vos choix sont faits, qu’il s’agisse de Projets, d’Intimité ou de Communication.
      Le Rôle, c’est d’où vous tirez votre conscience, alors qu’il se développe à partir de l'Expérience, des Relations et de la Socialisation. 
      Et ainsi on pourrait dire que c'est aussi la partie de vous que vous apportez À votre journée; la version de vous constamment remise à jour pour le nouvel ensemble d'expériences qui seront explorées le lendemain, le mois prochain, l'année prochaine et même dans la prochaine vie.
      En résumé

      De différentier ces contextes et comment se présente chaque Attribut dans ces contextes peut aider à apporter une conscience qu’on n’aurait peut-être pas eue autrement, en termes de saisir comment nos Attributs fonctionnent au quotidien. 
      En explorant ces contextes, vous pouvez également examiner là où vous pourriez avoir des « problèmes » ou comment vous pourriez résoudre les « problèmes » reliés à ce contexte de vie particulier. 
      Par exemple, si quelqu’un manque d’Intimité dans sa vie, il pourrait se tourner vers le Mode pour avoir des idées comment résoudre les problèmes reliés à l’Intimité et les relations. 
      Si quelqu’un ressent une absence de participation dans le monde extérieur, si l’on peut dire, et qu’il ressent un manque d’énergie ou une augmentation de sa frustration face à la vie, de se tourner vers le But peut l’aider à apporter un éclairage sur comment retrouver une participation consciente. 
      Si quelqu’un se sent rejeté ou inconfortable dans des situations sociales, il pourrait lui être utile d’explorer les vérités fondamentales, l’Attitude, comme point de départ pour trouver ce qui motive cette division. 
      Nous pourrions poursuivre avec de nombreux exemples différents, mais nous pensons que ce sera un bon point de départ à vous offrir compte tenu du temps disponible par l’intermédiaire de ce canal aujourd’hui.
      Nous avons davantage à dire sur la manière dont comment le Type Physique, le Centre de gravité et l’Âge de l’Âme peuvent aussi venir influencer mais ce sera pour des discussions dans de futures sessions.

      [AnnH]: J'ai du mal à comprendre comment fonctionne l'Axe de l'Assimilation dans ce contexte. Par exemple, mon Mode est l'Observation: comment fonctionne la +Clarté versus la -Surveillance dans le contexte des relations?

      EM : On pourrait dire qu'en termes de relations, quand vous fonctionnez à partir du Pôle Négatif, vous êtes séparés de l'autre, observant à distance, éloigné, sans jamais être vraiment intime, mais "surveillant". 
      Dans le Pôle Positif, on pourrait dire que vous êtes capable de laisser tomber la division entre vous et l’autre et de véritablement saisir sa présence en relation avec vous. 
      En d'autres termes, vous permettez à l’AUTRE d'être vu et inclus dans votre vision, votre +Clarté, plutôt que par le biais d’une fenêtre métaphorique en verre. 
      Lorsque vous êtes dans la -Surveillance, oui, vous pouvez sourire, hocher la tête et même faire des "yeux écarquillés" à travers cette fenêtre, mais l’Autre n’arrive jamais à être vu clairement, à être présent pour vous, à être à la portée de la véritable intimité, parce que vous "gardez l’oeil sur lui, ou elle"; ce qui, ironiquement, ne permet pas autant de +Clarté qu'on pourrait le penser, parce qu’en ne permettant pas à l’Autre d'être pleinement présent, vous ne disposez pas de toutes les informations disponibles. 
      Dans un but de simplification, on pourrait dire que le Mode de l’Observation est soit à distance, soit de près (respectivement les Pôles Négatif et Positif). 
      Nous vous rappelons que tout le spectre décrit par un Attribut est à votre disposition et que, même si les Pôles Positifs « semblent » être ce qu’il y a de mieux la plupart du temps et qu’ils permettent la manifestation de l’Essence, il est également valide d’utiliser les Pôles Négatifs car ils font partie de votre expérience de la vie comme Personnalité. 
      [Kathryn41]: Comment le Moulage s’intègre-t-il à ce scénario? Reflète-t-il davantage la Nature de l'Essence, à part du Rôle et des autres Attributs? Compte-t-il même comme un Attribut, ou s'agit-il davantage de la nature innée de l'essence?

      EM : Nous ne considérons pas le "Moulage" comme un Attribut, mais vous avez raison de le voir comme reflétant davantage la nature innée à l'Essence. 

      Le Moulage décrit une relation mathématique de votre Essence par rapport à d'autres Essences, ce qui affecte grandement l'Essence (et par extension le Rôle), mais pas dans les contextes que nous avons partagés aujourd'hui. 
      En guise de réponse rapide, nous dirons ici que le Moulage est un autre contexte qui aide à comprendre comment on établit des liens, mais au Niveau de l'Essence, pas de celui de la Personnalité. 
      Nous ajouterons que le "Moulage" n'inclut pas seulement la position de base dans la Cadence, mais le numéro de la Cadence elle-même et le numéro de l’Entité. Ces trois chiffres peuvent être discutés en termes de comment on peut prendre conscience de la façon dont on existe en tant qu'Essence en relation avec d'autres Essences.

      Bonne journée à chacun de vous. Au revoir.

      By Michael
      A few months ago I noticed a shift in perspective in my reality as a result of the Michael teachings as well as many other sources including the Bible and Eastern teachings.  This shift has resulted in a new level of contentment in my life.
       
      Basically the broad outline of reality is simple and leads to obvious conclusions.  All of creation is constructed from and by God or Tao so that all beings are part of the same being.  When we do unto others we are literally doing it to ourselves.  This is not theoretical but literally true and is at the heart of what Jesus says in the New Testament as well as the wisdom of the Eastern religions. We are also told in the teachings that we start out in the negative poles of our various characteristics before moving to the positive poles so that experiencing negativity in all its forms is essential to our ultimate purpose.  Any judgement or pain we inflict is on ourselves. There is no motivation to the enlightened mind to feel separate from anyone else no matter how exalted or depraved they may appear to us.  We are also perfect as we are and time is an illusion(thus already perfect).
       
      These precepts internalized can allow us to live life in a detached manner, enjoying the pleasures and not being dragged down by the miseries.  The concept of life plans and essence agreements can soften the pain of horrific events we observe.  There is purpose and agreement in all action.
       
      If we so choose, we can use logic to justify being happy and content in a world that appears to be on a path to self destruction.  Some of the parallels will survive!  All of us will for certain in our perfection.

      Current Events and Reality

      MEntity:
      Hello to each of you. We are here.

      We will first speak to the question of "current events" as they may be relevant to fragments who are not directly involved, often aware of such events only through public media. Some media/current events stand out strongly to you, and some are missed completely, while others may come to your attention to generate no strong sense at all beyond a prompt for consideration. 

      What we have to say today in response to this subject could go under a general subject heading that might be called "how reality works," as reality is quite subjective, quite relative, and rarely without interpretation. There IS a "reality" that is independent from your observations and interpretations, but it is rare that any experience of reality is completely free from the personal filters that "create reality" from those experiences. 

      When we speak of "parallel realities," we often speak in terms that are scientific and related to quantum physics, but there are times that we speak of "parallel realities" in the sense that one group's or one person's reality is quite different from another group's or another person's, yet all exist intermingling within the same space. This is often the case among groups or among people who are, each, invested in a conclusive interpretation of reality that is not truly open to any other interpretation. In that regard, one can be acquainted with someone who is almost literally "from another reality." 

      The older the soul becomes, the more inclusive and flexible the interpretive sphere of reality becomes. However, that flexibility of reality can become a rather ironic, painful, and isolating experience for those who do not "create a reality" with anyone, but allows room for the reality of many others' interpretations. This can begin to feel as if one is living behind a one-way mirror, always seeing others’ realities, but no one ever truly seeing one’s own. It begins to feel as if you are never truly seen, but merely a prop or reflection within the reality of someone else. That is simply the nature of reality, so to speak, for the older soul as a minority among younger soul ages. In that respect, it is near-vital for the older soul to find other older souls with whom reality can be shared, not so much for the validation of one's reality, but for the value of experience in being SEEN, HEARD, TOUCHED, etc. 

      Fragments are drawn to each other to share reality either for the sake of Recruitment, or for the sake of Intimacy. It could be said then that, in this context, Recruitment is the Negative Pole of Resonance, while Intimacy is the Positive Pole. And to this end, "current events" are filtered as a form of Recruitment or as a form of Intimacy, as well. Your news, media, politics, and "reality" in general around you either serves as Recruitment for securing your Conclusive Reality, or for generating Intimacy within your Potential Reality. 

      Recruitment emphasizes quantity and numbers of others for securing what one has deemed "true," while Intimacy emphasizes quality and exchange for exploring what one has deemed possible. Recruitment proselytizes; Intimacy shares. Recruitment has no room for questions, exploration, challenge, or possibility, while Intimacy generates space for questions, exploration, challenges, and possibilities. 

      Understanding this, one can begin to observe oneself in how one interprets the news: 

      Do you gravitate toward news that anchors your prejudices about reality, or do you gravitate toward news that challenges your prejudices? Keep in mind that "bad news" does not mean that it is anchoring or recruiting; often one gravitates toward "bad news" precisely because it challenges the prejudices that reality should only provide "good news," be positive, and uplifting. The manifested older souls gravitate toward "bad news," or exasperating, depressing, upsetting news because it helps the older soul to sustain a sense of spectrum about the universe. The manifested older soul knows that reality is a spectrum, not a slice. This older soul has embraced his Mature nature and knows that life can be dramatic, ugly, dangerous, upsetting, and sad. 

      The older soul that avoids "bad news" as a means to sustain a sense that reality is wondrous, beautiful, and full of possibility is a disconnected or fragmented old soul, nurturing a rather fragile reality that can often be shattered with a mere few words that contradict his or her strain to uphold a slice of reality. This older soul has crippled himself or herself. This is the monk who has determined that “city life” is violating, dangerous, and overwhelming because he has spent his years upholding a contrived version of the world in isolation on a mountaintop. This is the addict who requires a constant stream of false stimulation to keep up the good feeling that is lost without that stimulation. This is the new age student with good intentions who manipulates information, observations, and resources as a means to escape into, and sustain, a more fantastical version of the world.

      The older soul who can accept that “bad news” and ugliness are only part of the spectrum, and that “good news” and beauty are only part of the spectrum, and that there is a lot of life in between that, is the older soul who has moved toward wholeness. To emphasize one extreme or the other is Recruitment. 

      Keep in mind that any move to a Positive Pole is only done by "entering" through the Negative Pole, so that even as one moves toward Intimacy, it will require some amount of Recruitment. And that is why we do not see one Pole as being "better than" another in any part of our system, but more a description of a process, a spectrum, a circle, a sphere. For example, when one has felt the isolation inherent in being a minority Soul Age, it may take Recruitment to establish a common ground that can then lead to the expansion, questions, and exploration that is Intimacy. We clarify this move from negative to positive so that you do not presume that if you recognize Recruitment in your gravitation toward people or the news, that you are "bad," or doing something "wrong." You are simply nearer to that point in your progress and experience of Resonance. 

      Recruitment often helps one to discover if there is a valid common ground at all. However, to remain in Recruitment as a foundation for your reality and relationships is to nurture delusion, fragility, and in some extreme cases a move into fundamentalism, and into psychological disturbances that include such diagnoses as sociopath and schizophrenic. 

      To wrap up our initial responses to this subject, we will say that if the older soul finds he or she is more depressed, overwhelmed, and upset by what is reported by the media as news and current events, then that older soul would simply want to balance that out with an active interest in other news that portrays the more dominant news on the planet, which is "good" or "neutral." 

      As we respond to your specific questions, we may be able to help elaborate upon how certain events trigger more responses within one’s self than other certain events. We will also seek to shed insight upon some of the current events that you may ask about that are perplexing, so that one can see how events can "mean" very different things within different contexts.

      [Question] South Africa has, at least for my whole life, been a country in the midst of constant fear and political upheaval. As we are a country of people with such vastly different socio-economic, educational and cultural back grounds, it often feels like there will forever be strife, disharmony and fear. The 2010 World Cup has been a break from this though. In the last month we have experienced the most profound Inspiration, Joy, Unity and Patriotism. It was the first time in my memory I felt like we where unified, and there was hope for a more tranquil life. Even the crime stats were down during this period. Was this just a fleeting thing, or should this be seen as an example of what is possible? Or just a reminder of what we may never permanently achieve? I honestly wish that the whole world could have experienced this Group Consciousness. 

      [MEntity] We would say that this example is one that exemplifies Recruitment over Intimacy. Keep in mind that Intimacy is only gained after Recruitment, but Recruitment is fragile, a distraction, and often short-lived or in need of great defense. For this event to move from Recruitment to Intimacy, it would require that the passion remain beyond the illusion of bonds generated by representation in a sports team. The demographic of South Africa is quite Moving Center-centric, if you will, so it is not surprising that one way toward Intimacy might be through the Physical symbolism of a sports game or team. In our perspective, this is fairly important to keep in mind because a Moving-Centered demographic can just as easily "bond" through war, genocide, and other physical plane tragedies that then act as reasons for unity. The fact that a sports event is preferred is something one might call a “good sign.” With that in mind, we can say that this Young Soul culture's sense of unity as generated from a game is indicative of a maturing population that would rather bond over playful competitiveness than over painful competitiveness; bond over games, instead of wars.

      [Question] Is moving-centered common to a particular soul-aged culture?

      [MEntity]
      Centering tends to become a trend, but is never a static state. Centering can tend to become a genetic inclination, a cultural inclination, and a soul age inclination that has collective momentum, but is not static. Centering as related to a Soul Age, Genetics, Ethnicity, Culture, demographic, etc is quite dependent on what is happening in the world at the time. For instance, Young Souls TEND to prefer Moving Center AT THIS POINT, but have not always leaned in that direction. A more elaborate example: "Black" culture and genetics, in general (and relevant to South Africa) are inclined toward the Moving Center, AT THIS TIME, but have only moved toward that inclination since the late 1960s after a long period of time when Mature Souls with Emotional Centering chose that ethnicity, culture, and genetics for exploration. Once the Mature Souls with Emotional Centering moved into civil riots that paved the way for civil rights and freedom in The United States, this generated a new wave of interest from fragments who found the emphasis on the Moving Center for the bodies went well with this new territory of freedom for exploration, thus attracting a large numbers of Young Souls who now find this still-developing freedom to be exciting to burst through. 

      When we say "genetics" in this case, by the way, we are speaking of trends that become associated with certain cultures, ethnicities, and skin colors, but are not specifically linked in any biologically-consistent way. Some Centering inclinations do eventually become genetically-linked, such as the emphasis of strength on Intellect often having to be drawn from a pool of genetics that include poor eyesight. This tendency can be seen in Eastern Asian cultures and genetics. 

      [Question] What more can one "DO" in the world to help – i.e., an Older Soul in Observation - how do you make a difference?

      [MEntity]
      If your question is in relation to the potential presented by the unity over the sports game in South Africa, one can only do so much if one is not a part of that particular geography and culture. What one can "do" from afar is to remain educated about the politics and potential of that area, and then to find or create a means of communication and interaction with those who are involved in that area. This communication and interaction can then provide anything from a source of support to a source of inspiration to a source of tangible help. Beyond finding a way to actually be a part of the dynamic of that culture, however remotely, one can most often only choose to trust. 

      In choosing to trust, one has given some amount of recognition to the Essences involved in certain troubled areas, allowing for those Essences to experience and learn whatever it is they seek to learn and experience. This response from us is not an encouragement for ignoring or dismissing the plight of a demographic that is “out of sight, out of mind,” but to help encourage a capacity to differentiate between when one can do something vs when one cannot. Trust is a form of Doing, so there is always something one can DO, but Trust is also a form of Being, and Having, so all fragments can participate in Trust.

      Trusting a population over which you have no control, particularly when that population has no direct bearing on your daily life, is a form of Essence Recognition, and Essence Recognition is the only true form of evolution available to any fragment extant. 

      Evolution of any one fragment is an evolution of your species' collective consciousness, and then this potential evolution becomes available to any population.

      [Question] From what was said in the opening remarks, I can see how it might be difficult for the skeptic or cynic to see the "good news" of their reality, whereas it is more difficult for the idealist to see the "bad news" of their reality. Sliding from an idealist point of view, I've begun to slide towards cynicism when learning and analyzing the current events of the world, as well as seeing the directions that vectors of current events may lead in the coming decades, namely new wars, famines, and a great deal of hardship for many. I suppose it could be said just another century on Planet Earth.

      [MEntity]
      It is true that certain Attitudes may be inclined toward "good" over "bad" news, or vice versa, but this would only be true from the Negative Poles of the Attitude. 

      Though done in different ways, from the Negative Poles the Exalted Attitudes will tend to deny the "bad news" of reality, whereas the Ordinal Attitudes will tend to deny the "good news" of reality. It is not that these ends of the spectrum of news or life are "difficult" for the Attitudes to see, but that it is easier not to see them. What we mean is that the Exalted Attitudes "enter" reality through negative poles that tend to emphasize a lack of details, hence things are more beautiful, naturally. The Ordinal Attitudes tend to "enter" reality through negative poles that emphasize details, hence things are a bit "uglier" or pixelated, if you will. Again, we remind you that for one to move to the Positive, one must enter through the Negative, so these inclinations are “natural.” This is why we say that is it "easier," not because it is difficult to move beyond the negative, but that it takes effort. It takes no effort to rest in a Negative Pole. The Negative Pole is the starting gate. For the Exalted Attitudes to become whole in perspective, they must often experience SHOCK to move beyond the Negative Pole. For the Ordinal Attitudes to become whole in perspective, they must often experience SURPRISE to move beyond the Negative Pole.

      [Question] Somehow I get a feeling the world is in for a dose of both shock and surprise. How would you differentiate between the two, in this sense?

      [MEntity] We realize those terms may sound similar, but they are not: Shock is like a wall that halts one's perspective, whereas Surprise is like an invitation to go beyond the wall. The Ordinal Attitudes are not easily Shocked, but are quite intrigued by Surprise. The Exalted Attitudes are not easily Surprised, but can destroy walls of isolating, insular, or delusional perspective when Shocked. 

      [Question] and the Neutral Attitude of Pragmatism?

      [MEntity] As usual, the Assimilative Attitude/Overleaf would tend toward whichever is more relevant to the experience. In other words, in the context of Relationships, a Pragmatist may require Shock, whereas in the context of Career, a Pragmatist may require Surprise. 

      [QUESTION] How might we try to find peace and compassion with ourselves, our peers, and the world, rather than focusing on fear and despair, even when it feels like the world either is, or is about to, burn around us?

      [MEntity] We will say that the key to wholeness for the older soul in terms of interpretation, perspective, and possibility is to always ask WHAT IS THE TRUTH. Speculation IS NOT the truth, on any Level. If it is NOT the truth, then fear, panic, defense are completely useless and unwarranted. So while one might speculate that the current events may indicate leading toward disastrous futures, it is important to realize that this is SPECULATION, and that your center of power is only Now, which is not just a concept, but a point in time and space that is precise. That precise point of Now allows one to emphasize making the choices, actions, and feelings that can help steer reality in directions one prefers. 

      [Question] Isn't truth relative to the perspective of the person who sees something as their truth? In which case, searching for truth is like searching for a moving and constantly changing target?

      [MEntity]
      That is why we said that speculation is never the truth on any level. Speculation is Speculation. Reality and truth are what you choose for it to be. However, what is true for you must be explored in terms of what is valid personally, globally, and/or universally for it to be a whole truth. For instance: it may be a Personal Truth that you are concerned about the future of the planet based on what you see occurring around you. The TRUTH is that you are concerned, the rest is interpretation; speculation. The future of the planet is not involved in any way beyond the speculations that prompt your concerns. The future of the planet as you see it is still only one of billions of possibilities. So what one can do in that situation is to ask:

      A) am I using the news as a means of Recruitment? In other words, am I only emphasizing certain things in life that confirm what I've already decided is true? 

      B) How can I use this concern to effectively address that which I am concerned about? 

      It is true that "reality and truth are what you choose for it to be," but as older souls, it becomes important to validate those truths against the reality and truths that are independent from your preferences, interpretations, and prejudices. So while you may feel it is true that the world is headed toward demise, it would be helpful to explore all of the educational materials that not only address the problems, but suggest solutions, so that your perspective is not a conclusion, but a piece of a process. Simply deciding what is true and real does not make it true or real to any significant degree beyond yourself. This is why people are drawn to either rest in the Recruitment reflected in news or through other people so as to sustain what has been decided as true and real, or they move beyond this into Intimacy so that they can expand beyond prejudices, preferences, and interpretations. 

      "Reality" is only as "real" as one concludes/defends it, or explores/expands it.

      AN EXPERIMENT: We can suggest to all of our students as an experiment on reality to play with the idea that you may be "wrong" about what you know is true. In other words, encourage yourselves to move beyond what you have concluded or found familiar, and stretch into the "what if's" of your world.

      For instance, if you are dissatisfied with your work environment and have concluded that you are surrounded by Younger Souls who simply do not "get you," you can experiment with "what if" questions that seed changes in your experience of that reality. Such as "what if... I let it be okay that they do not get me?" "What if... it is I who does not get them?" "What if... I not let their interpretation of me decide my experience of my day?" 

      Or if one is bombarded with news of the British Petroleum oil geyser that clearly implies a long-term consequence, and one puts into perspective the history of unconscious dependence on limited resources, instead of one allowing this to be the conclusion about reality, one instills alongside one's concerns the "what if" experiment: "What if... this event helps change everything for the better of the world in terms of resources and responsibilities?” "What if... this is only indicative of one business model and mistake?" "What if... necessity is the fuel of invention, and I trust that someone, somewhere, is on this with a solution that may shorten the impact of this event?" The reason we suggest this experiment is because you already do this, but most often in the direction of demise. "What if... this is the end of the world?"

      All of you play the "what if..." experiment, but it is only when those "what if's" are interpreted as conclusive, or when they are limited to one end of the spectrum of possibilities that one has lost wholeness of perspective. Challenge your default "what if's" and see what happens. 

      [INTERJECTION] To which degree should this be taken? I mean, I could declare the world to be a donut, but know it not to be true.

      [MEntity]
      If one wants to experiment with "what if... the world is a donut?" we would be curious as to what you found in your results.

      Our point, in general, is that only what you currently experience, and what is currently happening around you, however you interpret it, is "the truth" on some level. Everything else is speculation and possibility.

      [Question] So many people (including many Michael students) are talking about a shift coming for “2012” with “big changes”. Every news event is another "portent". This seems to me to be antithetical to the very idea “all is choice” – what would be served by a massive, instant jump in “awareness” or consciousness level or whatever. Wouldn’t this kind of thing take away the opportunity for younger souls to work through their growth naturally. It seems like magical thinking to me, that somehow the planet will leap up to be more in tune with older souls. Is that the attraction to the idea?

      [MEntity]
      Every Soul Age has its own ideas about any "leap forward" in consciousness, if that concept is even on the radar for them. That the world would leap forward into sync with older souls might be an attraction to older souls, but certainly not to younger souls. 2012 as a period of accelerated shift is appealing to Old Souls for various reasons, but mostly as a means to fulfill a longing for Resonance with the whole of the world in a way that has been impossible for all of that Soul Age. You are a minority, and however fulfilling it is for each of you to find one another, to bond here, to know that others exist like you, it is naturally painful to also know that you are so "not like" anyone else in so many ways. 

      The irony in this longing for Resonance that is prompting many older souls to find the 2012 projections appealing, is that the Old Soul feels this way, even when surrounded by the most like-minded and intimate of souls. This feeling is simply part of the process of Essence evolving beyond the Physical Plane. As the profundity of realization by Essence that it is part of an Entity, the profundity of isolation that a Personality can feel becomes awesome and terrifying. 

      It might be thought that as one grows older in soul age that the profundity of death and evolution becomes embraced, but it is often quite the opposite. It becomes terrifying for the first time in a way that is indicative of true comprehension by the current Personality that it is one of many, and finite. Once that terror is processed, Cycling Off is fairly close in reincarnational terms. The Old Soul that has truly processed this terror is neither flippant about death, nor dismissive, but deeply compassionate about its spectrum of impact. 

      We elaborate upon this because it helps to put into perspective that it is not your minority status of Soul Age that lends you a sense of isolation or lack of feeling intimate with your world; it is only you who does that, and even in the most accommodating of cultures and worlds, you can feel this way. This elaboration can also help lend insight into why the Old Soul might find it appealing to focus on some fantastical portal or scheduled shift that promises that the world might "catch up" to their perspective, or lend relief to their isolation and private misery. 

      When the Old Soul realizes that no world shift, acceleration of consciousness, or global ascension will relieve him or her from the responsibility for his own presence, perspective, and power, then he or she is once again free. This Old Soul would be free from overwhelming emphasis on isolation, loneliness, and terror, and move to simply allow those experiences as a part of the spectrum of life. 

      That being said, shift does happen, but it is almost always long-term, gradual, propagated, and not sudden, obvious, scheduled, or imposed.

      When a group "shift" of consciousness is sudden, it is almost always short-term and specific to a group of souls who intend to exit that lifetime shortly after that shift. For instance, much of Cadre 9 "shifted" at once in various soul ages/levels during the event known as "9/11." 

      We are fairly certain that some groups will impose various make-shift "shifts" upon others within December of 2012 in some way, and many will use those fabricated shifts as points that prompt personal acceleration, be it material, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, but we know of nothing "magical" on the horizon beyond the sheer magic that is already life. 

      The loss of a job, a car crash, a terminal illness, a fulfilling relationship, a leap in career, and even a good mood can be one's "2012" or shift that accelerates one into new perspectives and levels of consciousness, but these cannot, and are not, scheduled on any global or cosmic calendar.

      [Question] At the risk of getting a causal plane ruler slap to the Earth knuckles, here goes: I get the feeling like there is some major event pending for the early November 2010 time frame. Would Michael care to comment on what has the largest probability, perhaps geopolitical wise, and how that would affect us around that time frame?

      [MEntity] The most-significant probability that we can see for that period of time would be the likely death of a rather prominent political figure. That is not a prediction, but merely a response that describes a higher probability based on current patterns.

      [Question] from the US or otherwise?

      [MEntity] Yes, a United States politician, or at least involving one prominently. In other words, if the leader of North Korea were to die, it might be that a prominent United States politician is presumed directly involved.

      [Question] natural or unnatural?

      [MEntity] Natural or Unnatural are not details within the probabilities available to us at this time.

      [Question] Current potential outcome of the gulf disaster, given what we know at this stage?

      [MEntity]
      The highest probabilities we can see for that situation are that it acts as a catalyst for implementing alternative energy resources in one vein; is a reworking of laws for corporations in another vein; and a prompting for key members of the next generation to "never let this happen again." All of these “veins” appear to have high potential for combining ideals that are a part of the Vector toward a Resource-based Economy/World, while accommodating/bridging from the outdated ideas of a Debt-based Economy/World.

      In terms of planetary impact, it is rather minor, though that is in a grand context and is not stated to minimize the painful or direct impact it has on those currently affected. We simply state that the world will move on, adapt, and eventually find this to be another blunder in history.

      [Question] given that it was an accident (or was it), how do you "never let it happen again"?

      [MEntity]
      It does appear to have been an “accident”, and how a generation might "never let it happen again" would include moving beyond resources that would ever generate this kind of "accident."

      The greatest solution we can see as taking priority in the probabilities ahead that would keep the world moving toward a Resource-based Economy would be the combination of all ideas for alternative or complementary power sources that are marketable and currently viable, allowing for individuals, households, and complexes to choose from wind, water, and solar. There is not a single alternative that stands as the solution, but the combination and appropriate implementation of one or more alternatives, relative to geographic compatibilities.

      We must conclude here. Our channel is done. Goodbye.

      [Michael Entity] 
      Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with an energy report to which you may ask questions after.

      The energy report we are sharing is for September of 2007. As you enter into the last month of emphasis on the Attitude of Realist, the reality of its effect may begin to become more apparent. So far, the emphasis has been gentle for the most part, if not a bit surreal, ironically, but the edges of reality are now up for examination and this may feel a bit harsh in comparison. When we say "edges of reality," we simply refer to the sharper points, the outlines and lines that hold the shapes of your beliefs and perceptions. Inside these lines, there is space and softness in which to move, but when examining the lines, you are dealing with "edges," which are not as pleasant in many cases.

      Over September, many of you may find that the lines holding your perceptions together actually change as a way to alter the forms that make up many of your manifestations. In other words, the CONTENT may be something you wish to keep, but the FORMS may change. This is where the "harshness" can come in. Often there is an attachment to FORM, even when CONTENT is unfulfilling; or there is an addiction to the CONTENT, even when the FORM is inappropriate.

      In this case, some of you have found FORMS that may be up for change, and it would do you well to understand and trust that the core of what you seek WILL NOT DISAPPEAR, even if the form changes. The FORMS will not actually disappear for most of you, but the opening for more appropriate forms will be apparent and available, if you so choose to allow room for those in your reality.

      We realize all of this may seem vague, but as September unfolds, it may become clearer as to what we refer. In short, allowing space, trust, and compassion for the shifts and rearrangements around you over September will allow for the beauty that is intended by these shifts.

      KEY Thoughts over September might be:

      -LETTING GO OF FORM DOES NOT MEAN LOSS
      -BEING FULFILLED THROUGH appropriate FORM AND appropriate CONTENT IS OKAY TO HAVE AND WANT (it doesn't have to be one or the other)
      -LOVE, ANYWAY

      There are no particular dates of note over September in terms of energy shifts, though the last few days of September and the first few days of October could be said to be a shift into a peaceful comprehension of the year-to-date, with many aspects finally "making sense" on levels of the head and heart. We suggest for you to "make sense" of your changes in the weeks following September, because it may be difficult to comprehend during the weeks of September.

      We will take your questions now, if you have any.

      [Pathfinder] In a way the report answers my question, it will be interesting to see September unfold. So I'll hold off til next month on questions.

      [Ocean] In my case, Form and Content feel like they relate to the place that I live in Maine, and the possibility of a move west.... up to now, I have felt that letting go of my apartment would be "loss".... I know I have to trust and flow, but how do I know where the "best" place to be is? I feel i may have agreements to complete in both places. I feel very much in flux right now.

      [Michael Entity] First, we would clarify that TRUST is based on experience (as opposed to FAITH, which is based in lack of experience), so it is important to refer to your history of change wherein you have landed on your feet and made the "best" of anything you have chosen. Flow is important, but that does not mean a lack of questioning and concern. You appear to us to be "flowing" quite well, even as you navigate deliberately. In terms of the "best" place to be, this can be resolved by examining and comparing the Content that you seek, but also examine how it manifests. For instance, two places can have a strong emphasis on creativity and community, but one emphasizes this in schools of children, while another emphasizes this in communities of adults. Looking at your options in terms of FORM is one of your last considerations. You have found the CONTENTS, now thoroughly examine the FORMS. Ultimately, the trust you use to navigate your choices is fairly resonant between your Personality and Essence, so we see that your experience, wherever you choose to go, will most likely be "the best choice."

      [Ocean] thank you so much

      [JodiYeager] Thanks Michael. My question is one of form and content I think. It started out a month or so ago with a reality switch that I became aware of due to the changes in the bushes in my front yard, followed by the death of my ex and the retirement of my partner followed by the death of my mother. My question is, this switch in reality and the events of the past month or so, why did I choose this reality, is the other that I left harder, or perhaps easier as in less accelerated. I feel a bit of a top spinning out of control and having no anchor.

      [Michael Entity] Keep in mind that your choices CREATE your reality, not so much that you choose a reality as if it is intact before you "get there." Much of what you experience as "spinning out of control" is simply a matter of valid processing that is not confined by time or space or dimension, and "wherever" you might be in terms of realities, it will still be your choice as to how you feel about that processing. The intensity of so many changes in such a short period of time is not meaningful beyond the fact that you have created a reality that embraces the choices of others, too, which means they will die, retire, and love as they wish. That effort to love that broadly is Good Work. You have a lot to digest, accept, process, so it is not surprising that there is a bit of disorientation in terms of your daily life. The routines of life can seem trivial and draining in the shadow of profound processing, but that's why they are routines: to allow some amount of automation during the various levels of processing. There are other versions of this reality for your Essence where the Personality processes events differently, but to compare these realities is not helpful for you "here." If you preferred a different reality, you would be "there."

      [JodiYeager] It seems to me that both form and content are mutable and totally fluid, choice of what forms and content are "empty waiting to be filled for me" and that during this processing, form and content will be chosen.

      [Michael Entity]
      The basic CONTENT that is needed at this time in your current reality is simply COMFORT, HEALING, and INSIGHT. The FORM that it takes is up to you, but that Content is available. Looking around you and embracing the Content that is available in various Forms would do you well in getting your feet back on the ground, a sense of presence again, and an acceptance of this reality.

      We will conclude here. Good day to each of you.
