<BC> First question: Have I completed 4th IM in positive pole? I thought that I had a year or so back, but a fellow student told me that it's possible to NOT complete in positive, in which case I will need to pick up from there in next lifetime. I feel more of a neutral passage than a positive one. Will Michael please comment?
Oh, yes. It is often true that "completed" can mean one is done working through the Internal Monads and simply remains where one is, not progressing through the subsequent Internal Monads. However, one can transition into a subsequent Internal Monad, even if one has left a previous Internal Monad in the Negative Pole, but this would mean progression would remain fairly limited to the Negative Poles of that subsequent Internal Monad.
For example, one could "complete" the 4th Internal Monad in the Negative Pole (technically meaning incomplete), and move into the 5th Internal Monad, locked into the Negative Poles until the issues related to the 4th are resolved for true completion.
In your case, however, your completion was true, and your move into the 5th Internal Monad during the year of 2011 was a freely moving progression. True Completion does not mean one is free from requiring revisits to issues of the past, relative to previous Internal Monads, but one would not be locked into a spiral of Negative Poles in that case.
Progression always "enters" the Negative Pole of a Stage, and "exits" the Positive Pole of the Stage, moving into the Negative of the next, and so on. This is the progression toward True Completion.
<BC> Good. Now I'm wondering what of the 2nd & 3rd I've left incomplete...I will be revisiting and re-reading about the IM's for sure.
<MEntity> Movement through only the Negative Poles can feel like movement, but there is no true completion, just resignation or constant struggles relative the efforts.
<BC> I'm familiar with that dynamic.
<MEntity> BC, if your 4th Internal Monad was a True Completion, it means it could only have been so if the previous Internal Monads were as well.
<BC> That is good to know. I don't feel incomplete, but just remember how I used to struggle in my 20's, 30's, and even 40's. Getting older is much more mellow!
Yes, much of the work of your 2nd and 3rd Internal Monads were done during your 4th. It was not easy.
You are free, now.
Big sigh.....no wonder that 4th was so hard...makes sense now.
And has the ring of Truth
Your Rite of Passage (internal monad) now is merely to do the work of re-creating yourself and your life, but free from even the identities secured in the 4th Internal Monad.
The 4th Internal Monad is a Rite of Passage for owning your identity and life on your own terms.
The 5th is about freeing yourself from even those terms, and re-discovering yourself again.
