    Working Quadrates Involve Life Task

    Kasia

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Configurations]

     

    [MaryBV] In a working configuration you mentioned the work involved the life task. Do the members have the same life tasks or are they similar or complementary to each other?

     

    [M_Entity] In a Quadrate, the individual Life Tasks would all complement each other in some way. They may not appear so, but in terms of the larger goal of the Configuration, it is contributing to the same direction. This only applies to a Working Quadrate. In all other Configurations, the Life Task may or may not contribute so directly or complementarily.

      [Excerpt from Membership Gratitude Chat: March 2016]
       
      PeterK: In a recent private session, I asked for the Life Task and Life Plan of a Task Companion. You provided an answer for the Life Task but said that the Life Plan is something you would discuss with the fragment, if asked. Is it inappropriate for me to ask about the Life Task and Life Plan of another person?
       
      MEntity:
      No, it is not inappropriate. We will clarify.
       
      If you were to ask what color a person's hair is, we can say brown, even if the person has colored his hair, bleached it, dyed it, shaved it. We can say it is brown and everything he chooses to do with his hair is his choice. Calling it "brown" only tells you what the color is. Life Tasks are like hair color. We can tell you what they are, but what a person does with that Task or how that Task shows up in the life will always be up to the individual.
       
      The brown hair will go with this person wherever he goes.
       
      However, elaborating upon a Life Plan can be similar to trying to describe how a person is getting from Point A to Point Z.
       
      It is not that it is inappropriate to ask this about another fragment, but there are so many variables, nuances, and details that are fairly regularly altered and updated that for us to describe to anyone other than the person, himself, can often be meaningless or empty of context.
       
      Life Plans start out like a shopping list for ingredients aimed for making a certain recipe.
       
      You go to the grocery store armed with your list and then that is when you see all of the ingredients available to you in all of their glory.
       
      Some people stick to their list and aim for the ingredients and get out of the store and on with their "cooking," but many more find themselves distracted, exploring, snacking in the aisles, sampling goodies, reconsidering, etc.
       
      So Life Plans are complex and varied and change regularly.
       
      In general, we can look at Life Plans in 5 year increments.
       
      So while you can ask us about Life Plans, the discussion is often far more complex than a phrase.
       
      We know there may be better ways to clarify, but we think this will do for now.

      [Michael_Entity]
      Ok… Hello to all of you…
       
      What we'll do is start with the “weather forecast” as usual, reviewing a little on what might have happened for some of you over the past few weeks, then address the next few [weeks].
       
      Again, for purposes of our introduction to this electronic medium in this fashion through this channel, we will remain open for questions, personal or otherwise, at the end. No topics, necessarily.
       
      We spoke last about your own futures being examined in terms of how you and Essence would like to show up, express yourselves, in the coming year. This is due, in part, to the natural energies of this year, as well as the fact that each of you will be “spinning off” aspects of yourselves for various purposes.
       
      What we saw as most indicative for you in this examination period, in terms of how you might be handling this, is through the “reflections” of your EXTERNAL environment. This period of time in your environment's reflection has become almost harshly “realistic”; nothing spared. We also mentioned to be on the lookout for Animals and Specifically Categorized Individuals (mentally, physically challenged, or those apparently “rejected” on the outskirts of your societies) as being highlighted symbolically. Some of you may have seen clear indications, while others simply noted, then moved on. Depending on your involvement with the SYMBOLS, either in dreams or in a situation in which you have been drawn, you may or may not be having a “serious” fluctuation of future probabilities.
       
      Here are the indications that your symbols were meaningful:
       
      1. That it appeared, drawing your attention, surprisingly.
      2. That it “stayed” with you, even if only for the day, but at least an extended time.
       
      It is that simple.
       
      There is one more indication of what your INDIVIDUAL shifts will be focusing on in the weeks ahead:
       
      Some of you are in a specific crisis. A personal crisis [seeming] to be a [repetitive or all-too-familiar] pattern. This, we would say, is the third SYMBOL for this transition ahead.
       
      Each carries meaning.
       
      Those who have had animals show up: You are moving toward more EARTH and ACTION-ORIENTED service in the year ahead, being very drawn out into the world. The way you have interacted with the Animal, or how it called your attention, lends you insight into how you will interact in the world as you, yourselves, are “called out” into [the world].
       
      For those who saw or will see a preponderance of specifically categorized people, or challenged people: You will most likely be dealing with INNER CIRCLE service, taking care of interpersonal relationships, healing or tending to those closest to you.
       
      For those dealing with an extenuating circumstance, or Crisis, as a pattern: You are in the process of “upgrading” your beliefs. There will be “no room” in the months ahead for many of you to be distracted with “outdated” patterns. You are dealing with it either in one massive blow, or you will simply leave it for another lifetime.
       
      Now, beginning March 1, approximately, you all will enter this transitional phase, or NEXUS of Parallels.
       
      Each will enter at various points [in time], but the PAST few weeks, and actually most of the beginning of this year and the end of last year, you were doing the “research.”
       
      This NEXUS is where you begin to condense and manifest EXACTLY what Essence and Personality are striving to experience in the year ahead. There will be many “versions” of you “out there.” There is no need to be concerned with “how” this is, unless you choose to study the Physics of your Universe. The “YOU” you are most concerned with is the “one” you appear to be at any given moment.
       
      Now, before more details, if any, we will take questions in regard to this. We will add, briefly, that if [more than one] symbol shows up for you, it is simply an indication of your being involved [in each of these levels].
       
      [IK] Can you suggest effective ways for moving through this nexus?
       
      [Michael_Entity] We just did.
       
      [IK] More specifically then?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, but this would require a questioning of the specific symbol and its relation to you, your reaction/response to it, and our interpretation of that.
       
      What each of you can do is sit down with your symbols, if any, and examine what they may mean symbolically to you, what your reaction indicates (fearful, excited, exasperated, etc.), and what this all might mean to you personally. For example:
       
      Assuming an animal has shown up in your dream, you may interpret the animal personally, or look it up in an animal totem book, then add your actions/interactions/reactions/responses to the picture and make a story. AFTER there is clarity (and even if no clarity sets in), the actual NEXUS phase will find your “new” environment beginning to truly feel more “REAL” and needing to be “reckoned” with. It would be best to allow all EXTERNAL calls to your attention be taken seriously in the weeks ahead, as this is where your Work is.
       
      There is really no more that we can say without a detailed exploration of each of you.
       
      [ha] Why would it become desirable to “spin off” aspects of self, i.e., I'm in process of re-integrating spin-offs, why would it be beneficial to spin off more?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It would depend on your definitions of “Spin-offs”.
       
      Assuming [your definition is] the same, it will always be the case in any given lifetime that aspects of your Personality “spin off” into realities of their own. This is simply because Essence wants to not only experience EVERYTHING it intended (your TRUNK REALITY), but also all of the creative input from Personality. When you speak of integrating these Parallels [“spin-offs”], this may easily mean that other aspects of Personality [are moving] on, [being replaced].
       
      Let us clarify something:
       
      Each Personality is composed of what we refer to as SUB-PERSONALITIES, aspects of “you” that make up who you are in various situations.
       
      Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE, virtual “sub-personalities” of the Essence.
       
      We realize this can be mind-boggling, but we assure you, you are not required to grasp this. That is what Essence does. You, as Personality, have only the life to contend with, not the creation of the Universal Schemes.
       
      Many of you will be bringing in aspects/parallels that have been off in their “own” realities for a while, and now are merging with “this one”, but we will discuss that at a later date.
       
      [ha] So when you mentioned at the beginning that we may be spinning off aspects of self, did this mean sub-personalities of self, or essence's sub-personalities? Also, if it is sub-personalities of self, where do those spin-offs go and what do they do?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We were referring to Essence “sub-personalities”.
       
      Sub-personalities of Self stay with you, present, and are called to the “surface” for your various situations. Multiple Personalities and Schizophrenia are the results of breakdown and non-communication between these sub-personalities, by the way.
       
      When you ask, “where do they go?,” the same similar event occurs on an Essence level: YOU and ESSENCE exist within the SAME SPACE. ALL the parallels exist within the same space, but “you” are at a different “frequency” for Essence.
       
      An easy way to visualize this:
       
      Imagine Parallels as being a conglomeration of colors on a single surface. THIS is how Essence “sees” it all at once, but when this conglomeration of color is [seen] through, for example, a BLUE lens, different colors are highlighted and others diminished. The SAME palette is there, but the FOCUS creates a different “dimension.” Other “lenses” would create similar results. “YOU” are a specific focus within the conglomeration of all the Parallels.
       
      This is a grand topic.
       
      [fg] M said, “Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE; virtual sub-personalities of the Essence.” What do you mean by virtual?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      That was a convenience of speech. We choose our words carefully in many ways and this, we felt, carried the best impact as these “selves” are not easily verifiable. But it is only from the perspective of one self that these [other selves] would appear “virtual”.
       
      Did this answer your question?
       
      [fg] Yes, thanks.
       
      [Michael_Entity] We will continue if there are questions.
       
      [M6] Last week here at this time we had an interesting energy connection and conversation, though we weren't able to have the planned Michael channeling. Could you explain the connections and processes we were experiencing together? There was some channeling going on.
       
      [Michael_Entity] Your “connections and process” were exactly that. There are some of you with whom we have Agreements as Students, some as Channels. We have one Channel [that was present] we are working with and those with whom she has Agreements will find this format rewarding and experientially fulfilling. It appears you were a part of that process. Certain [fragments] will need to be connected with our Channel as we work through. Familiarity breeds success. It may be validating to know we were essentially present.
       
      [ha] It seems that I have an instigating personality. Lately, wherever I go, I seem to stir up discussions and connections. Is this part of my life-task?
       
      [Michael_Entity] You are this way in all of your lives in various forms. It is a favorite theme. You are not one to easily be appeased with pointlessness and dismissiveness. In this life, you have chosen Overleaves that keep that from happening, for the most part, and yes, it would have a part in your Life Task.
       
      [s5] When the libraries were burned at Alexandria, I am assuming much knowledge was destroyed. Can you tell us what some of that knowledge was? Have we as a culture rediscovered all, or is there something yet to reemerge?
       
      [Michael_Entity] To elaborate on what was lost would require a different forum, and we can address this in full, more elaborately, when more time is available. We will say, however, that most of that knowledge would be difficult to gather, except through channeling or other psychic endeavors. Even then, it is not guaranteed to be accurate. There are a few elements surfacing after the turn of the century that are material.
       
      [km] I am having much conflict with those I work with. I feel that it is positive, that I'm learning to “stand up for myself”. Then again, I may be acting from negative poles. Can you comment?
       
      [Michael_Entity] You are, indeed, reacting and expressing through the Negative Poles, but only as a path toward the Positive Poles. Your task in this situation is to RESPOND, rather than REACT. It is true that those involved are difficult in many ways, primarily due to abrasive Overleaves, but this is only highlighted as you explore your Self-Karma, centering around your own historic belief that you must “do the right thing.” It angers you to feel “pushed” past what you feel is “right.” This is merely a maturation process and indicates you are moving toward realization of internal security. There is much more to this, but this is start.
       
      [s0] It has been suggested that I write a book about my life, is this part of my life task?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It would be one way to express it, yes.
       
      There is no SPECIFIC route with which a LIFE TASK must be manifested. In fact, what is mostly misunderstood about a Life Task is that you SEEK it, or PURSUE it. In reality, you already DO it. It comes naturally. Incidentally, you are, in fact, in Agreement with several thousand Essences for a book.
       
      [fg] Are sound (physical or not) and material form connected? I.e. “in the beginning was the Word…”
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, Light, and indeed all of Physical Reality, is the result of Music and Math. All can be translated into these forms. This Universe is built on Music and Math, and your Physical Structures are based on Circles and Triangles. There are connections and cross references all through these terms.
       
      Another Grand Topic.
       
      [a5] How can one draw the wisdom, help, of cycled off (disincarnate) entity mates? I've heard they are around to assist. True?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      Yes, of course they are available. It is one of the easiest of all connections to call on. What makes it difficult is that most of the “wisdom” feels like “you.” Trusting your impulses, [inner] voices, magnetism; these are messages from Entity Mates who are in some way working with you.
       
      If you choose to give them a voice, as we have for ourselves through our channels, it would require a different approach, but the wisdom is available simply by asking.
       
      [km] What would be an important use of brainwave “EEG” technology?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      We have no investments on the paths chosen to use this tool and we see it simply as a picture tool, a map. It may be used in whatever capacity a fragment or group may choose. There are many ways this can be applied.
       
      We will now comment that many of you have topics right here that may be of interest to you. We are aware this format is limited in our ability to respond adequately. If you would like any of these elaborated upon for your next gathering, simply ask or suggest your interest. We will move more quickly into a Topic in the future.
       
      Good Night.
    • Troy
      By Troy
      [Note: This is an edited version about the 7 Levels of Life Task excerpted from a student’s posted blog on the TLE website. The information was channeled in July ’09 by Troy Tolley. The edits were only to remove personal evaluations.]
       
      [Note: The 4th IM channeling dates from before. GLB]
       
      [Question] what is Michael's definition of real purpose / real task / real mission – is this something that is contractual between our essence and our fragment, and essence will come in to communicate it to us… it seems that this “real work” occurs for fragments between the 4th I.M. and 5th I.M. Does it have 7 levels of operation ??? And, if so, what are they??? Maybe some people do it before the 4th and, starting of the 4th – and, do it throughout their lives starting of the 5th – and, do it throughout their lives
       
      [Michael Entity]
      We would think our phrase of “Life Task” may be of relevance here, and we would define that as “the original motivation for the physical form and for the dynamics of the Personality.” There are no contracts in this case, but there are intentions and agreements that are helped along by Essence until the Personality is no longer interested.
       
      The Life Task is what Essence intended to experience in the lifetime through this particular Personality.
       
      What Essence intends NEVER overrides what Personality decides. Essence has no urgency for these intentions because it is fully aware of the fact that it can create another lifetime and body for trying again. In addition to the option for creating new lifetimes for the intent of a task, there are also parallel branches within a single lifetime where, more often than not, at least one version of “you” does co-create the life with Essence and fulfill the task. Essence will never impose its vision upon the Personality beyond the original motivation and design.
       
      Most Personalities can determine their Life Task quite easily because it is more often than not something they already do. The Life Task is a primary consideration in the design of Personality, so whether one experiences the fulfillment of that task, or merely develops fruitless habits and patterns, the clues would still be there.
       
      If one is not already doing something related to the Life Task, then clues are usually found in what one WISHES one were doing.
       
      It is valid that the 4th Internal Monad is usually the stage within the life when a fragment truly questions the alignment of self with soul, or life with essence, or path with presence, depending on the spirituality of the individual.
       
      There are 7 stages to the process of fulfilling the Life Task and they correspond to the 7 stages within the 4th Internal Monad.
       
      Stage 1: INITIATION
      +enthusiasm -indifference
       
      This stage is hardly noticeable since you have only just placed your consciousness into the new context. This stage relates to the Instinctive Center, therefore “kicking in” the Monad without the individual being particularly conscious of this.
       
      Indications of the initial stage are usually marked by enthusiasm and anticipation. A simple delight in your potential future or accomplishments.
       
      Since this is simply a technical reference, and not really measurable enough to recognize, we suggest using the signs of the Second Stage as a starting point, possibly “working back” to a point where you might have seen the initial stages begin to manifest. Most will find there was a point when there was either a sudden enthusiasm that “something” was different, or a definitive point wherein the fragment feels further removed from its own life.
       
      This Stage, then, evaluates your sense of Trust.
       
      Stage 2: INTROSPECTION
      +awareness -brooding
       
      This stage is heavily marked by dread, anxiety, and intense Introspection. Depending on your resistance and your Overleaves, you may experience anything from a realization of your personal worth and a positive realization of your life's impact, or virtual self-implosion and self-degradation.
       
      Different cultures will respond to this Stage depending on parental upbringing and definitions of Authority.
       
      This is an introspective stage in the context of a Monad to evaluate accomplishments and plans, so there may be a processing of a Scary Parent or issues with Authority you have carried around being belittled for your “mistakes”, decisions and choices and expression.
       
      In that processing, you may experience a new sense of connection to “something” more like a Supportive Parent or Authority from within to gently nudge and concur with you through the life.
       
      This Stage evaluates your perceptions of Authority and your reaction to your sense of self-importance and self-value.
       
      Stage 2 brings up energy from the Emotional Center.
       
      Stage 3: REALIZATION
      +freedom -separation
       
      This Intellectually-centered Stage begins to release the ideas of the past as a source for the future. New ideas and identities will emerge here.
       
      Most realizations will be reserved for inner exploration, but, nonetheless, a change has taken place in how the individual views its expression as a part of a larger picture. On the more expansive side, one knows what must begin to be done, and starts to anticipate a general plan, not always with clarity, but with a certainty that “something must be done.” On the more constricting side, one begins to pull back from the future and “hide within,” or away from external reflections.
       
      This stage evaluates your perception of Responsibility. This Stage usually lasts the longest, especially in the Fourth Internal Monad, as you probe your beliefs.
       
      Stage 4: MANIFESTATION
      +purpose -otiose
       
      This Stage brings energy out through the Moving Center as you begin now to express to yourself, and others, more confidently what/who you are. In the context of the Fourth Monad, it is where you begin doing or, at least, pursuing/discovering what you are pulled to do as a reflection of your “contribution” and original Tasks. Successful movement through this is seen as a comfortable expression of your daily activities and endeavors.
       
      Resisting this Stage and remaining here would result in sluggishness, ineffective portrayals of self, and sometimes rage/anger in place of empowerment.
       
      This stage explores your concepts of Purpose.
       
      Stage 5: CONTENTMENT
      +satisfaction -contention
       
      Finally you begin to feel/see some satisfaction from your progress through the Internal Monad. In the context of the Fourth Internal Monad, whether you have completed or accomplished a Task becomes irrelevant against the contentment of what you choose to do.
       
      In this Stage, you realize the amount of density you have been containing and you begin to “lighten up” about your movement.
       
      In the positive pole you will see personal happiness now becoming a factor in your decisions, and in this Fourth Monad, you've released treasured securities found in the oppressive/elusive “big plan or PURPOSE,” and find this more appropriate guide. Otherwise, the negative pole finds an individual always at odds with their environment, always in a state of contention and debate about their worth/purpose.
       
      This stage evaluates your perceptions of Love. The Higher Emotional Center is highlighted here.
       
      6: MAGNETIZATION
      +attraction -repulsion
       
      In this Stage, you now begin to draw in your agreements, Karma, and Support for new perspectives, or reconnect/stabilize existing ones. The positive pole maintains clear communication, acknowledgment of Traveling Companions, and a more accurate view of the future. You now see with clarity the long-term impact of your efforts alongside the current “demands.” Those who find themselves in a state of rejection, isolation, and depression have chosen to experience the negative pole. A sense of deep longing begins to unfold in the negative pole of Stage 6, since so much has been deemed “unacceptable.”
       
      This stage opens you to your perceptions of Truth.
       
      Stage 7: EMANATION
      +alignment -incongruity
       
      In this stage you find the peace of routine that becomes you. A sense of wholeness returns and “getting back” to your life. In the positive pole, alignment occurs with Essence; in the negative pole, life becomes incongruous and sporadic in nature, with no bearing. Regardless of the pole, you will emanate your sense of self at that point with no resistance.
       
      This stage engages your Higher Moving Center, and examines Beauty, or Energy.
       
      It is important here to note that a completion of the Monad does not necessarily mean a “positive” completion. In most cases where the negative pole becomes emphasized, completion is not reached due to the internal degradation and combustion that occurs along the way. Many do complete the Monad, however, within parameters acceptable to them that would technically be regarded as the negative pole.
       
      This is the choice of the individual and has no bearing on their being a “good” or “bad” person; we do not say this, nor do we imply this. We merely state the differentiation between what is expansive and self aware, and what is not. The negative completion is not expansive or self-aware, relatively speaking.

      MICHAEL SPEAKS
      091408
      Open Floor
       
      Michael Entity: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a response to the first question.
       
      QUESTION: I can see how anger can be useful (to show you when your boundaries have been breached), but Cruelty would seem to have no use. Why does it exist, and where does it come from?
       
      Michael Entity: In the same way that Anger is a defense, so is what you might consider to be Cruelty. However, it is important to note that "Cruelty" is often a relative experience. "Cruelty" is often not an intentional by-product of someone's action or choices, but a fragment who is disappointed might assign the label of "cruelty" to the event. For instance, when one fragment can legitimately sense the necessity of a separation within a relationship, but the other fragment is deeply attached and terrified of solitude, the choice of the fragment to move on can be interpreted as "cruel," when, indeed, it was one of the most loving choices the other fragment might have experienced to-date.
       
      COMMENT: Oh, I see. I guess I was thinking of cruelty as intentionally trying to hurt another.
       
      Michael Entity:
      It is very important to differentiate the intentional act of Cruelty from the interpretative act of defense against disappointment.
       
      Acts of Cruelty are often not just the result of intentions to hurt, but can be the result of neglect, denial, justification, and apathy.
       
      With all of that being said, we can now more clearly respond to your original question of "why does it exist," and "from where does it come."
       
      The legitimate act of Cruelty, whether intentional or not, is a product of choice, of course, but a product of choice that is entirely self-preserving. Not "self-serving," but self-PRESERVING. There is a difference.
       
      Self-preservation is an act of survival and fear, whereas Self-Serving is an act of giving/receiving.
       
      Cruelty, then "exists" because there are a myriad of ways in which the fearful body, mind, or heart can turn for survival purposes when these feel threatened. Even the most intentional, drawn-out acts of torture as a form of Cruelty would still be generated from this very same thing.
       
      Although all Chief Negative Features can bring about forms of Cruelty, the most active, intentional forms of Cruelty can generate from Arrogance and Self-deprecation, and the most passive forms of Cruelty can generate from Impatience and Martyrdom.
       
      In terms of "Cruelty having no use," we would agree. Cruelty is an unnecessary byproduct of fear and has no value beyond the false sense of defense.
       
      QUESTION: Would you say anything about healing our bodies when they have been experiencing physical and emotional cruelty?
       
      Michael Entity: The response to your question might find more relevance on an individual basis, but what we can say in general is for any fragment who has experienced Cruelty, whether real or imagined, 50% of the healing would come from the comprehension that the Cruelty had nothing to do with you, or your value, your meaning, your worth, your choices, your past, future, etc. In short, it has nothing to do with you at all. Many who experience Cruelty, real or imagined, healing is delayed by the constant questioning of WHY. Most often there is no answer to this question that would satisfy you. The focus for healing would be more beneficial in the direction of HOW, as in focusing on your rebuilding, your personal compassion and kindness, and your support.
       
      QUESTION: Recently it was channeled I have a surrogate task companion because my TC is not available. What reasons would a Task Companion not be available so that a surrogate TC would need to be available, and could the surrogate TC relationship last across lifetimes.
       
      Michael Entity: All fragments have surrogate Task Companions and Essence Twins. There is a spectrum of reasons for why a fragment falls into unavailability, such as death, distraction, change of plans, lack of memory, lack of interest, lack of skills or tools required for the task at hand. An Essence cannot predict the outcome of the choices that a Personality might make within a lifetime, and often those choices are counter to original intentions for the lifetime. As the soul grows older, rather than generate Karmic Ribbons as a result from the impact of another fragment's choices that might alter your plans for a life, it is simply more practical to have a surrogate step in. Surrogate relationships do tend toward consistency and are usually drawn from the closer strings within your circle of support (your Support Group of 12). For instance, a 3rd String Knowledge Position might be your Surrogate Task Companion, and a 2nd String Love Position might tend to be your surrogate Essence Twin. If these terms are unfamiliar to you, Troy can direct you to resources for exploring that Support Group details further.
       
      QUESTION: Is it possible to run out of surrogates (if the surrogate is unable to be there for some reason)?
       
      Michael Entity: Surrogates do tend to still fall into some kind of mathematical resonance with you in a way that would be similar to the fragment for whom one is stepping in. It has happened to all of you here that, after the life was entered, "no one was around." Those lifetimes can tend to be surprisingly delightful or terrifying, much in the same way one might feel if one were to plan a trip to the mall, or upon arrival to school, and finding oneself in a complete "free-for-all." Those lives are rare, especially after the Baby Soul Age cycle, because the skills for creating a Personality and lifetime becomes an art for Essence, but it has happened to some Older Souls.
       
      QUESTION: I would like clarification re: the 9/12 "Trues". There are 9 Trues PLUS Life Task/True Work, but the 9 Trues are actually grouped in threes with the True Work to make 3 quadrates. Does that mean there are 3 different aspects to the Life Task/True Work depending on its quadrate, thus making 12 Trues, 3 of which are variants of True Work? or is it 9 Trues plus 1 True Work/Life Task? which would make 10 trues . . .
       
      Michael Entity: Both angles of interpretation would work. Technically, there are 9 "Trues" made up of 3 Triads of support for the Life Task in various contexts of "Personal," "Community," and "Planetary." The phrase "True Work" was a kind of shorthand as the original concept was delivered in a consistent way to describe the Personal Quadrate and was interpreted by some as indicating a separate concept from Life Task. However, it is valid to say that the Life Task can be described through various suggestions under a title of "True Work" and each could be more specific to the different Quadrates. In other words, the Life Task would remain the same as an overall arc of description, but methods of action for manifesting the Life Task could be described in terms of True Work on a Personal level, a Community level, and a Planetary level.
       
      QUESTION: so in a sense all 9 Trues combine together as supportive elements of the Life Task which is the summation of the 9 Trues?
       
      Michael Entity
      We describe the three Triads as each supporting the Life Task, but the ultimate pattern is one of progressive, though non-linear, evolution, or pyramidal evolution. Any system of 9 is a pyramidal form of evolution in our system, such as the 9 Needs.

       
      When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Personal Level, the "base" is built from the Personal Quadrate, or Pillars of Vitality. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Community Level, the base is built from the Community Quadrate, or Pillars of Harmony. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Planetary Level, the base is built from the Planetary Quadrate, or Pillars of Transformation.
       
      However one "builds" or visualizes this pyramid of evolution, there will be tiers of development that eventually address all Quadrates.
       
      We have much more to say about this subject, but will move on for now.
       
      NOTE FROM TROY: Michael also shared this image for me as a way to understand this "pyramid," so I mocked up a copy as best I could. For some of the advanced students, note that the Life Task/True Works are Action; Play, Health, and Core are Expression; Rest, Spirit, and Love are Inspiration; Study, Home, and Gift are Assimilation. See attached image or the image above, if it shows properly. The image isn't static, either, but rotates as necessary or depending on a person's emphasis.
       
      [QUESTION]: How does serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, manifest in relationship to Roles and Overleaves? Are they caused by the Overleaves or are the Overleaves masked by the illness, until the illness is successfully treated?
       
      Michael Entity: No "mental illness" is caused by the Overleaves themselves, but understanding the Overleaves can help one to manage "mental illnesses." Most breakdowns in Personality however, when not due to any physical damage or developmental distortions, are usually Centering issues.
       
      COMMENT: I am going on the research that says these are physical illness.
       
      Michael Entity:
      Schizophrenia, for example, is the inability for the emotional elements of a Personality to communicate with one another, tending to be an Emotionally-Centered, Moving Part issue. Bipolar diagnoses are often the issues of Intellectual Centering, Moving Part. "Mental illnesses" that are diagnosed as being sourced from chemical imbalances are still connected to the Centering issues, and it can be a valid form of healing to use drug intervention on that chemical level to bring about a functioning that can then be sustained by the body in the long run.
       
      When physical damage or developmental issues of the body are a cause for a "mental illness," then this is usually a direct result of choice or allowance by Essence and is part of a greater theme of experience. In that case, the Goal is usually involved as the primary consideration, but is not the only consideration, of course.
       
      In all cases of legitimate mental illness, it is the result of breakdown in communication among the various facets of the Personality, requiring a third-party bridging for effective communication to be returned. There are a number of ways a fragment can focus a lifetime on issues that require comprehension of interconnectedness, dependency, and the importance for allowing help, so mental illness is one of those ways.
       
      Again, this is a question that can be more effectively answered in relation to specific individuals, but we believe our response here will offer some relevance in general.
       
      QUESTION: You have told earlier about suitable ways to meditate for people with emotional/intellectual and intellectual/moving centering. What about the rest: intellectual/emotional, emotional/moving, moving/intellectual and moving/emotional?
       
      Michael Entity:
      In nearly all cases for effective meditation, it is not so much about the Primary Center/Part, but about the Centering that is most often neglected. So an Emotionally-Centered/Intellectual Part, and an Intellectually-Centered/Emotional Part could both do well with a MOVING-CENTERED Meditation. Whatever your Centering/Part, you might find the most effective meditations to be in the realm of that third Center of Gravity that is not usually accessed.
       
      Moving-Centered Meditations can include anything that involves the Body, from taking a simple walk, to Tai Chi and Yoga to dancing the night away. Intellectually-Centered Meditations can include anything from crossword puzzles and brain teasers to such focused meditations as Transcendental Meditation, to good night of hilarity and comedy. Emotionally-Centered Meditations can include anything from a good listen to music that resonates with you, to cathartic expressions such as can be found in Primal Therapies, to night of tears and intensity at the movies.
       
      So a Moving Centered/Emotional Part or Emotional Centered/Moving Part can both do well to get out out the crosswords, brain teasers, or make their way to the nearest comedy venue.
       
      The point of meditation, in general, is to bring about a full functioning of all of the lower Centers, so it will always be most effective to focus first on that Centering that is most neglected. However, if one wants to just feel good and bring some awareness to one's natural, habitual processes, one can focus on a meditation that is resonant to the Primary Centering.
       
      Rather than compile a list of meditations for each Centering, each of you can consider this fairly accurately on your own: if it tends to emphasize the Body, it can be used as a Moving-Centered meditation. If it tends to draw up and emphasize the Emotions or feelings, it can be used as an Emotionally-Centered meditation. If it tends to bring about emphasis on the Intellect or thinking, it can be used as an Intellectually-Centered meditation.
       
      The difference between an experience being just another experience and its being a meditation is AWARENESS. When you are dancing, listening, or laughing, for example, bringing your awareness to the moment can instantly turn it into a kind of meditation.
       
      QUESTION: I'm curious about the "coincidence" of someone dying on the birthdate of a loved one; for example, my grandmother died on my birthday, and my mate died on his mother's. My feeling is, it's like a tip of the hat, a sort of spiritual wink, from one soul to another — if it's possible to generalize. Could you comment please?
       
      Michael Entity:
      "Meaning" is always the result of one's creating it, not finding it, or discovering it. Even when the intentions of someone is clear, the interpreted meaning on the receiving end can be quite different from those original intentions. When one dies, one will die on a day that many MANY will be able to claim as their birthday.
       
      With that in mind, we would say that when a person from your intimate circle dies on a personally relevant day, there is often an intention there. What that intention is can be very different among those instances, but we have seen that it is valid that there is usually an intended message there.
       
      QUESTION: There has been written and discussed much about that the mobile phones are overheating and making damage to our bodies when much used. There are of course also those that deny facts about any effect in one way or the other. How does the energy from the mobile phones influence on our bodies or the head when we use them? :call: :hypno: :)
       
      Michael Entity: Though the use of what you call "cell phones" or "mobile phones" is fairly recent in your history, we have not seen any effects of any significance that could be considered dangerous to the physical body, at least in terms of waves or rays, however some have exploded, causing harm, but that is a different category of threat, and minimal at that. The rays of your sun in one day can have far more impact in "negative" or dangerous ways than a lifetime's use of a cellular phone. The use of a microwave for extensive cooking can have more long-term damage to one's body than the use of a cellular phone for a lifetime.
       
      QUESTION: So the heat and dizziness some feels in the head when they hold it for a longer period close to the ears is minimal of distortion?
       
      Michael Entity:
      We base our response on the reports we can see relative to damages or harm caused by cellular phones, but we see none beyond those of the explosive variety and some cases of interference with regulators, such as "pacemakers."
       
      The heat is legitimate, but the dizziness appears to be individual reactions to holding up the arm for extended periods of time, or walking and talking at the same time. Other reasons can tend to come from the audio effects on the ear drums as many cellular phones can tend to have poor translation from device to ear.
       
      We offer our response as reflective of what is on record at this time, but we do not offer it as a conclusive report. The devices in question are undergoing a number of changes that will continue to require monitoring for effects.
       
      We will conclude here. Good day to each of you.
       
      Goodbye.

      OMW - Aug 6, 2011 - Validating Your Profile
       
      Channel: Troy Tolley
       
      [MEntity]
      Hello to everyone. We are here.
       
      We will begin with discussion about the concept of Validation.
       
      We have shared on this subject many times, but will do so again, as it is a subject worth revisiting on a regular basis, or as necessary for rekindling the active process of validating.
       
      We have described the processes of Validation to include INTERNAL Validation, EXTERNAL Validation, and TRUE Validation.
       
      INTERNAL Validation is the process of determining what is valid and true for the self, and this does not have to be valid and true for anyone else.
       
      EXTERNAL Validation is the process of determining what is valid and true for others, and this is not always valid or true for the self.
       
      TRUE Validation is the process of matching Internal and External Validation into a kind of wholeness.
       
      The Validation process is never about absolutes, and is always about personal truths.
       
      Truth that is from the Global or Universal Levels of Truth require no validation for them to be Truths, but Internal and External Validation can help one to work with those truths, reject them, work around them, etc.
       
      For instance, Gravity is true for your planet and everyone on it, regardless of whether you have validated this for yourself, or not.
       
      However, if you fall down, you now have an experience that may validated the truth of Gravity for you, Internally validating it. If you see someone else fall down, you may then have witnessed the validity of Gravity for others, Externally validating it.
       
      This is True Validation.
       
      But in terms of Validation, it only means that it is now "true for you."
       
      However true and valid Gravity may be, there may be some who refuse to validate it for themselves, or they ignore the implications of what falling down may mean.
       
      This kind of logic and equation, if you will, remains the same for Universal, Global, and Personal Truths.
       
      NONE of them are true and valid for YOU until you Validate them.
       
      Validating from only one side, Internally or Externally, does not mean a truth is half-valid, or not valid, but that it is only true IN THOSE CONTEXTS.
       
      For instance, Love is a Universal Truth. You may have validated that it exists Externally, because you see it play out around you, and hear about it, and know others claim to have experienced it, but you have never truly grasped the validity of it for yourself. This means that Love is true and valid Externally, but not Internally. For YOU.
       
      Conversely, you may have grasped the magnitude of what Love truly is, moving unconditionally and with agape through your social and intimate relationships, accepting yourself and others, but having a hard time seeing this same state played out among your fellow humans in the world; seeing a great lack of love around you in others' lives.
       
      You know that Love is True. For YOU. But you have not Externally validated it in a way that it shows up in the world around you.
       
      Keeping this difference between Internal Validation and External Validation in mind can free you from a great deal of confusion and frustration when one is lacking.
       
      We often see our students using Validation as a form of defense against participation in the world, or as a means to delude themselves, or resist ideas and insights, because they have decided what is true Internally, but forget that it can also be validated Externally.
       
      Some of our students decide what their Overleaves and Role are, and regardless of feedback or evidence to the contrary, or evolving understanding through study, will continue to uphold that those Overleaves are valid. And they are. To them. And some think this is as far as Validation needs to go.
       
      Others may receive an inaccurate set of Overleaves from a channel and then work hard to make those Overleaves fit, because this set has been presented as valid, Externally, via the channel. Some think this is as far as Validation needs to go.
       
      In other words, Validation is reduced to "If I say it is true, that is all that matters." or "If [a channel] says it is true, then it must be."
       
      To some extent, both of those statements are true and valid, but only if you decide they are.
       
      Determining what is true for you, or accepting as truth what is true for others, are fair ways to work through experiments and explorations of the Physical Plane, but neither of these bring wholeness, and neither of these allows you or Essence to be fully present in your world.
       
      True Validation is not "easy," and it is often a dangerous obstacle to evolution, but it is also one of the only ways to truly evolve.
       
      When we say that it is "not easy," we mean that it is not often the case that you can find Internal and External agreement for validation.
       
      When we say that it can be a "dangerous obstacle to evolution," we mean that sometimes when both Internal and External validation matches up, those involved can resign from validating or questioning beyond that.
       
      An example of the first might be a homosexual teen who knows "who he is," and yet his family insists he is wrong about, or for, his sexuality.
       
      An example of the latter might be something like that which comes from cult thinking, such as "Jim Jones," "Manson," or "Heaven's Gate."
       
      This is why we build into our teaching an insecurity or instability that will always remain as a means to keep our students questioning, grappling, trying to make sense, taking separate stances, etc., because it is a teaching that supports your evolution, and is not meant to provide comfort and sanctuary.
       
      As soon as all of our students would agree, this teaching would no longer be a teaching.
       
      We share all of this with you because the process of Validation is not as simple as deciding what the truth is, and it is not as simple as someone else deciding what the truth is, and it is not as simple as everyone agreeing.
       
      It could be said, then, that Validation is "an active, conscious, constant navigation of Internal and External truths that can never be presumed conclusive."
       
      Before we get into the Overleaves, we will share one more consideration regarding Validation.
       
      Validation is a Monadal Process: a process of returning to a state of wholeness that is compromised of seemingly contrary or divided forces or states.
       
      This Wholeness is ultimately greater than the sum of the parts.
       
      Validation, then, is a constant dance between Internal and External truths.
       
      When one insists on one or the other, division is the result, regardless of how true something may be Internally or Externally.
       
      But there is a solution, even if only temporary, along the way to True Validation.
       
      And along the way through True Validation.
       
      And that is through the truth of: I DO NOT KNOW.
       
      Or: THEY MAY NOT KNOW.
       
      Taking the example of the homosexual teen who has struggled with accepting his sexuality, and has done so with great love, but is rejected by family for having done so, with their insisting he is wrong or bad, how can Wholeness for the teen come from this?
       
      He would embrace these conflicting truths, allow them to exist, under the umbrella of "THEY MAY NOT KNOW" and "I DO NOT KNOW.
       
      In this case, "They May Not Know" would refer to the fact that the family may simply not understand that that this difference in sexuality is of no threat, no consequence, no sin, and nothing more than a small part of him. This grasping of their lack of knowing can help to cultivate patience, and to help deflect the personal feelings of rejection and hurt that come from their lack of knowing.
       
      "I DO NOT KNOW" might refer to the fact that he does not have the skills right now to manage the rejection, the necessity to educate them, the impact of their words, etc.
       
      NOT KNOWING is always a viable bridge between conflicting truths.
       
      It "buys you time," allows for patience, compassion, effort, awareness, insight, perception, etc to come into the process.
       
      To be even more inviting of those helpful qualities, it might be helpful to add: "It is okay for now... that I do not know." or "It is okay for now, that they do not know."
       
      All of what we have shared above can help in the process of validating your Profile, Overleaves, Essence, and all channeling that might come through our channels, as well as your explorations of self, relationships, choices, and life.
       
      It can also help you in moments of conflicting truths where the battle to impose an External Truth over yourself, or to impose an Internal Truth over others, is simply useless and pointless.
       
      True Validation never comes through imposition, but through education and invitation.
       
      If you find that you are uncomfortable with a truth, or trying to force a truth, it does not necessarily mean that this truth is not valid, but that you "do not know." And that is as profound to embrace as knowing.
       
      Now we will move this into application for validating your Overleaves.
       
      Before we take on specific questions, we will say that the above can be applied in this way:
       
      Your Overleaves can be Internally Validated by you through your understanding of the terminology and how those accurately describe and lend insight into how you understand yourself. Your Overleaves can be Externally Validated by others through your seeing the behavior and feedback of others in relation to you, as you gain this self-understanding.
       
      External Validation of your Overleaves does not necessarily mean that someone else decides, "yes, that term fits." To rely only on confirmation of terminology would never give you True Validation.
       
      But if you find that your Internal Validation of the terms as they help you understand yourself is also affecting how others respond and react to you, as well as how you respond and react to them, then you may have found True Validation.
       
      In any case of terminology where you may not KNOW, the next steps are education and invitation. Which is why we are here with you today.
       
      We will leave it to Geraldine to choose the order of the questioning, but we will now open the floor to your questions about specific elements of your Profile. We will offer what we can for help in your, at least, Internally Validating the term, and then your External Validation may come in time.
       
      FLOOR IS OPEN
       
      [Martha] my question is about true vs public/private - is that on the table?
       
      [MEntity] Yes, Martha. Formulate your question about this and we will respond.
       
      [Martha] some of the overleaves for me are so different between true - public - private that it seems it speaks to me not having my subs integrated or something along those lines especially the centering was completely different for each one so some help with understanding that is what I'm looking for
       
      [MEntity]
      The Public and Private sets of Overleaves are shortcuts to understanding how, in general, one wishes to be seen, and how one is seen. They do not speak to sub-personalities, but do speak to the facets/personas that one may have developed.
       
      In your case, your sets describe the distance between how you see yourself vs how others see you, or how you wish to present yourself vs how you tend to be received.
       
      [Martha] So I act like a server and look like a warrior? LOL
       
      [MEntity] Though personas/facets may be related to sub-personalities, they are not necessarily connected.
       
      [Martha] or act like a warrior and look like a server?
       
      [Martha] but all sage cast :)
       
      [Martha] it's confusing
       
      [MEntity]
      In your case, the profiles speak more to the fact that you find yourself falling into positions of subservience and nurturing on a rather regular basis, but because of the resentments that may come from that, you can show up as harsh, frustrated, coercive, pushy.
       
      To respond to the Sage Casting for both, it would simply mean that you will still be expressive in either case, and often in loud ways.
       
      [Diane_H] I would like more clarity on Server casting. How I use it, etc. You previously mentioned I mainly serve myself, which I agree with. But most of my days I act more Scholarly.
       
      [MEntity]
      Though the Role is how one "shines" in the world, it requires the presence, or Manifestation, of Essence for that to happen on any regular basis, and this is something a Personality may or may not strive to do in a lifetime. However, Casting will always show up, as it is how the Personality defaults to functioning on a day-to-day basis.
       
      To help with Validation of any Role or Casting Position, it can help to look at other qualities that describe that Axis.
       
      In the case of the Server, you would want to look at the fact that this is an Ordinal Casting, first.
       
      It is Ordinal/Inspirational, next.
       
      This means that on a day-to-day basis, you may find that you naturally gravitate toward one-on-one scenarios, rather than group scenarios, and because you are Inspirationally-Cast, it would mean these one-on-one scenarios may require some sort of Meaning for them to be at all.
       
      [Diane_H] That's true, I hadn't thought about the Inspirational aspect.
       
      [MEntity]
      If something of Meaning can be brought to the exchange, then it may be more comfortable or pursued, but meaningless or random social or intimate contact is usually not of interest to the day-to-day functioning.
       
      The Priest seeks to bring Meaning to the masses, or a path to the creation of Meaning, whereas the Server seeks to bringing Meaning to the individual, or at least a path to the creation of that Meaning.
       
      [Diane_H] That really fits.
       
      [MEntity]
      If Server Casting is valid for you, it may show up as your being an important contact person for an important handful of fragments over time as you connect them to Meaning.
       
      Looking further, it might show up as a Re-evaluation in your pursuit of your Goal, Reserved in your Relationships, Stoic in your Perceptions, and even Self-deprecating, in general, in your day-to-day functioning.
       
      Re-evaluation of your Goal would show up as your constantly ebbing and flowing, halting and launching, always questioning the progress of your pursuit of your actual Goal in terms of the Overleaf, but also in terms of general goals, such as career.
       
      [Diane_H] Wow, that's a bull's-eye

      Reservation in your Relationships would mean always monitoring yourself, sometimes with Restraint, and sometimes with Inhibition, as you build yourself up in contexts of intimacy and resonance.
       
      The Stoicism in Perceptions might show up as your always keeping cool, or appearing cool, unfazed, no matter what you see, or how something is perceived, sometimes through Tranquility, and sometimes through Resignation.
       
      Though you will have your spectrum of Overleaves that describe you in much more detail, your Casting Position is like a packaged form of that entire Axis, and it will permeate the other Overleaves in some way.
       
      [Diane_H] But I also have all neutral overleaves, how would I begin to tell the difference between sliding and effects of casting?
       
      [Diane_H] Or perhaps I slide to the Server overleaves more easily?
       
      [MEntity]
      Neutral Overleaves ALWAYS appear like other Overleaves, hence their being Neutral.
       
      Neutral Overleaves will always "slide" as a means for functioning, and they may often go to the Axis of the Role or Casting.
       
      In your case, for you to truly Flow, you will slide to Growth or Dominance. Both of these are on the Axes related to your Casting and Role.
       
      The GOAL will remain the same, which is to Flow, but your means of Flow is to sometimes turn your challenges into opportunities for Growth/Evolution, and sometimes into opportunities to return yourself to a position of Dominance/Leadership.
       
      Validating Neutral Overleaves will always go back to looking at the Positive and Negative Poles as descriptions of where you land.
       
      For example, you tend to "take charge" and move into Dominance because you have fallen into Inertia, or feeling like life is not going anywhere, or is moving in a direction you would rather alter, and though you will use Dominance to alter that Inertia, it is still for the sake of Freedom, or returning yourself to a state of peace, not a state of control.
       
      [Diane_H] Very true
       
      [ClaireC] My "True Work/Life Task" seems rather abstract, no doubt because it probably relates to the "Big Picture". I'm able to validate that I do find commonalities amongst apparently disparate people and groups of people, however, could you give me other examples of how the pursuit of my "Task" has manifested in my life?
       
      [MEntity]
      Yes, Life Tasks are deliberately broad in scope, because we do not wish to define for you how you fulfill your Tasks, but our descriptions should still be able to be found in evidence, if valid, and if the Task is actually pursued.
       
      In some cases the evidence is obvious and grand, and in some cases, it is "right under your nose," and completely missed.
       
      In your case, the pursuit of this Life Task is still being explored, and there are only hints of its fulfillment at the moment. Most paths of fulfillment of a Life Task are rather subtle in the beginning, and are often not even clear until retrospect is possible.
       
      Your pursuit seems to show up most often in two ways: through being "in the middle" between those who are divided in some way, and by pulling together concepts from various systems that can then be translated into something useful for yourself or someone else.
       
      You seem to do this so naturally that you might even take it for granted.
       
      [ClaireC] Yes, this really resonates with me.
       
      [MEntity]
      Some may dive into a system and that becomes a core around which other systems must adapt, which is just as valid a means of exploration as any, but in your case, your Life Task is to bring systems together like gears in a clock.
       
      And by "systems," we also include people.
       
      For now, with minimal evidence of your Life Task, we can offer this up as a means to help with your Validation: Beneath your relationships and philosophies, you may find a dominant undercurrent question that may be something like, "Now, how and where does THIS fit..."
       
      [ClaireC] That's exactly how I function....like a giant jigsaw puzzle
       
      [MEntity] Others may relate to that kind of questioning, as well, but in your case, it shapes a great deal of your choices and pursuits, all funneling into the Life Task to find or create commonalities/common ground within various systems.
       
      [carolyn] Hello it's vey good to meet you here. I would like to ask if stepping into a designated "space of information" regarding the nine realities, could be used as a valid way of creating greater understanding around the True Validation of Overleaves. Particularly if this involved working in tandem with an entity mate or someone from your Circle of Support 
       
      [MEntity]
      If we are understanding you correctly, we would say that is a valid means for bringing True Validation. This would be a process of recognizing that you may not share the same understanding, insight, experiences, "reality," but that your intention to invite and educate so that you can build some shared understanding, insight, experiences, and even "reality," then.
       
      It can also be the same if you already share these things, so that feedback is felt to be trusted and honest when exploring who you are to yourself and someone else.
       
      [carolyn] Share the same Overleaves?
       
      [carolyn] Well an aspect of your overleaves to be more precise.
       
      [MEntity] If you already share a reality with someone, share truths, share perceptions, it can be helpful for the validation process, but only if the intention is for validation, and not justification.
       
      [carolyn] By "inviting" say the Enlightenment position from your Circle of Support to assist, could this help further validate as opposed to justify?
       
      [MEntity]
      Those who share the same overleaves may show up as completely different Personalities because of how those Overleaves are used, so this would need to be considered, but there would be core traits that can be used by both.
       
      An Enlightenment Position from your Support Circle, such as we are for you and our students, is quite helpful for validation of such esoteric, philosophical, and intangible elements of the self and life.
       
      The Enlightenment Position helps one to develop the structures through which experiences are organized, understood, and processed, and having that in place can help a great deal when seeking True Validation of anything.
       
      Have we understood your questions accurately?
       
      [carolyn] Yes, thank you.
       
      [Geraldine] I've never completely validated to my satisfaction that I'm Sage-casted Sage; however, I think that is in large part due to poor definitions for Old Soul Sages in positive poles. I've validated my saginess more from how I acted when younger more than as I've been during the past 20 years or so. Although, I'm accepting that Old Sages may be far more wise and involved with truth than we give them credit for being. But, I liked how you worked with Diane's casting based on her Axis. Would you do similarly for me, even though I have matching casting/role?
       
      [MEntity]
      First, we will say that in the case of Sage for Casting or Role, the "packaging" would include Acceptance, Power, and Idealism, even Greed. In your case, these would show up not only when you "shine," but as a means for functioning on a day-to-day basis.
       
      Regardless of Soul Age, Sages will ALWAYS be affected by issues of Acceptance, and regardless of the Goal, will always move in directions that support or encourage Acceptance. This progresses in cycles of pushing for Acceptance of the self and of pushing for Acceptance of others.
       
      Beneath every motivation of a Sage is somehow connected to the pursuit of being Accepted.
       
      [Geraldine] Yes, I'm prone to a sweeping feeling of being rejected on a heartbeat.
       
      [MEntity] In other words, Dissemination or Oration will always be related to a Sage's navigation of Acceptance. For example, most Sages who Orate do so as a means to compensate for a sense of not being Accepted.
       
      [carolyn] I was cast with Sage as a discarnate Essence Twin, Priest role and Artisan cast. They all seem to fit on some level.
       
      [MEntity] Common to the motivation of all Sages would be statements that might go something like "I am telling you this so you can accept me;" or "I am telling you this so you can accept that;" or "I am telling you this so you can accept you;" or "I am telling you this so I can express my acceptance."
       
      [Martha] Oh yeah, that fits
       
      [Martha] A Sage must have come up with the "Like" button
       
      [MEntity]
      Going further, all Sages take a stance of Authority or Oppression in terms of relating information to you.
       
      Sages RELATE to the world, or to others, in terms of Expression in the face of Oppression, or sharing information as an Authority on that particular information. Power Mode is about being Present, and this is how Sages make their presence known.
       
      This is why Sages can come across as "obnoxious" and as "know it alls," because this is their nature: to be themselves, even when you wish they would not, and to speak or communicate with confidence, even as they know there may be more to learn.
       
      Sages have PRESENCE, or in our system, POWER.
       
      Sages cannot relate to others without feeling PRESENT.
       
      Otherwise, they are invisible, and invisible equals non-existent.
       
      No other Role (or Casting) requires their Presence to be known as a means for experiencing existence.
       
      Sages must show up somehow, to someone, or they die, either or both metaphorically and literally.
       
      Going further, all Sages, regardless of Soul Age, see the world in terms of how it can be improved. Regardless of the Attitude of the Personality, there will always be a theme of communicating for the sake of improving what has been deemed in need of improvement, whether this is a slow conversation, an awkward moment, a relationship, or a paradigm.
       
      Sages may do this through telling you all of the steps necessary for that improvement (coalescence) or by simply telling you it needs to improve (naivety).
       
      To Geraldine: are you finding resonance with these descriptions?
       
      [Martha] (I know I am)
       
      [MEntity]
      We will continue.
       
      In terms of the validating your Overleaves, will offer up statements and questions that can help in determining the validity of your set of Overleaves:
       
      [Geraldine] (and yes, I was)
       
      [MEntity]
      For your GOAL, a helpful way to understand how it shows up in your life is to ask: Is this a state to which I constantly strive to return my life, or the lives of others?
       
      For instance, those with a Goal of Acceptance will always find a theme of effort to be accepted, accept themselves, accept others, and encourage others to accept each other.
       
      Always.
       
      No matter what is going on in the life, the pursuit of this quality represented by the Goal is always a motivating factor in every choice.
       
      The Positive Pole is usually the most obvious way to find the validation in terms of your aim, and the Negative Pole is usually the most obvious in terms of when you feel the most ineffective or defeated.
       
      In other words, someone in Discrimination may see it most obviously in terms of moving his life into a state of refinement, or Sophistication, but can also validate Discrimination by seeing that he turns to Rejection as a way of dealing with defeat or ineffectiveness.
       
      Acceptance can see that he aims for bringing more affection or Agape into his life and the lives of others, but responds with Ingratiation when feeling defeated or ineffective in doing so.
       
      For your MODE, it can most often be validated by what you seek to encourage out of others, and what you often see is missing in others.
       
      For instance, Passion Mode would tend to encourage Passion out of others, and may gravitate toward others who lack Passion.
       
      Observation Mode might encourage others to pay more attention, and often gravitate toward those who have a hard time seeing clearly.
       
      For the ATTITUDE, it may be most easily validated by seeing what it is you most often find yourself trying to convince in others.
       
      The Spiritualist will try to convince others to the possibilities, and the Cynic might try to convince others to see the other side of the obvious, while the Idealist would try to convince others that the self, relationship, life can always be improved upon.
       
      We do not have time in this format to go through each overleaf, but these efforts to convince can show up in both positive and negative ways, relative to the poles.
       
      For instance, the Spiritualist would seek to convince others of possibilities, and can do so through helping others verify those possibilities, or by encouraging blind faith, or belief.
       
      In another format, in another time, we can describe all of the overleaves in terms that are far more capable of use for validation.
       
      We will conclude here for today. Our channel is fading in focus. Good day to each of you.
       
      Goodbye.
