[Excerpt from a private session for Maureen on August 15, 2013]
Maureen: Would you elaborate on the following statement you made on the Wholeness of Soul course: “Regardless of Soul Age, there will be truly “enlightened” Personalities within each Soul Age, relative to that Soul Age.”
First: in terms of "enlightened" lifetimes/Personalities, these tend to come in your 6th Level of the Soul Age. It tends to be the pivotal lifetime that helps shift into the 7th Level for that Soul Age. By "enlightened" here, we mean that the Personality loses the conflict between rationale and intuition.
The conflicts between rationale and intuition tend to be at the heart of lifetimes where the Personality is asleep, or parts of the Personality are asleep.
Rationale is the part of the Personality that is developed from tangible, linear, relative experiences and imprinting, while the intuitive is developed from comprehensive, holistic, and transcendent experience and empathy.
Both are necessary for the Personality (and Essence) to navigate a lifetime, but these can be in conflict with one another in all or some parts of the life.
When the battle between "what I know" and "what is wise" is shifted toward resolution, enlightenment cascades.
Keep in mind that we do not disparage "what I know," and do not find that "what is wise" is helpful without what is known.
But every fragment can look at his or her life and see that there are elements that refuse to awaken because of this conflict.
Maureen: Is there any co-relation to becoming "enlightened" vs having the ability to be or become a Transcendental Soul?
For example: one may "know" that it is okay to live however one wishes to live, but there is the "wise" part that begins to comprehend the consequences of those choices in how to live. This is how one evolves. One gains experience upon which to build what she knows, and then learns to extrapolate from that by using wisdom.
You would be correct, Maureen. The individual who embodies his or her entity, or hosts the Infinite Soul, will have worked to resolve, or will have resolved, all conflicts between the rationale and intuitive.
Maureen: And the Transcendental Soul ...considering that it is experienced at the 7th Level?
MEntity: The Transcendental Soul tends to find this as the fuel for the impulse to bring change, whereas the fragment who would host the Infinite Soul finds this as fuel for complete surrender.
Maureen: I see... yes.
A Transcendental Soul would not have "levels" in the same way that we delineate the first five Soul Ages.
It is true that there are Levels, but only one within the Physical Plane.
Maureen: They would just "manifest"?
Transcendental Souls are born. Infinite Souls manifest.
However, they do function in similar ways for much of the life.
The Transcendental Soul gains access to the Entity only upon manifestation of his or her own Essence as representative. A Personality as Transcendental Soul can reject this access to Essence, as any Personality can, but it is rare. It is much easier for the host of the Infinite Soul to reject manifestation than it is for the Transcendental to reject the Essence.
The reason for this is because the Infinite Soul must always have a host "on hand" for potential manifestation, but the manifestation is not always necessary, and so it is passed up, and because the Personality will always trump potential manifestation, there must always be "back up."
However, the birth of the Transcendental Soul is planned quite specifically, and "everyone" is in on the plan, so it tends to unfold as planned, even if altered by various choices of the Personality.
A modern example of the passing up of manifestation of Infinite Soul would be in the fragment known as "Elian Gonzalez," who was one of several children opted in for hosting when it appeared that it might be necessary.
