  1. @Wendy's session today, POF 7.19.21 A Unique Holding Pattern for Us Al, reminded me of what Michael said for Helpful Thoughts Over July. Also, remember this Q&A @Mike Cleverly had with Michael at a POF on November 16, 2016? It was posted in JanetE's blog entry The IS, Non-Terrestrials, and Trump. Oh my. MikeC: I would also like to ask - What part are the Student Cadres playing in this giant dance over the next decade - could you describe the work of a few configurations that are in motion? MENTITY: Our students are incarnating for their own personal reasons, of course, but in terms of collective timing of these incarnations, the network of Configurations currently seek to contribute collectively toward HUMANITARIANISM. Many of our students' Essences remain deeply moved by Humanistic Philosophies, and those concepts are in the process of being applied on a greater scale through Humanitarianism. However directly or indirectly, however clear or distorted, nearly every Configuration and individual who is our student is working on adding to that collective momentum toward securing in your species the anchor of Humanitarianism. However private your tastes, however painful your struggles, however blissful your loves, and however playful your days, everything is being funneled into how to anchor Humanitarianism as a default starting point and internal reference for all incarnations. This may sound amorphous and intangible, but that is because it is a cumulative effect from thousands upon thousands of fragments across multiple lives each. Over the next 10 years, most of our students are grasping the concept of choice like they have never comprehended it before. Many of our students have taken for granted the power of choice because it has only been seen in terms of how it affects the individual life. When the power of choice is seen as hooked into the shaping of futures for humanity, the concept of choice expands from being a hand-held tool to being that of a collective vehicle.

  2. So I was reminded today that the US (and other parts of the Americas) has two big eclipse events coming up in a few years, so mark your calendars and maybe plan a trip! Get your eclipse glasses, filters, or other safe viewing method ahead of time. I'm particularly excited as the paths of both eclipses intersect here in Texas very close to where I live (astrologers make of that as you will), so I'll be super anticipating these. If interested, lots of good info here: https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com October 14, 2023 - Annular Solar Eclipse Totality for this one goes through the western US (Oregon to Texas) and swings down through parts of Mexico and central America into South America (mostly Colombia and northern Brazil). The moon's apparent size will be slightly smaller than the sun's, so at the height of the eclipse the sun will look like a thin ring, known as a "ring of fire." Not quite as dramatic as a total eclipse, but still really awesome. Protective viewing equipment is needed at all times. April 8, 2024 - Total Solar Eclipse This is the biggie, the last solar eclipse in North America until 2044-45. Totality comes through North-Central Mexico and crosses the midwestern US (Texas to Lakes Erie and Ontario), then follows the US-Canada border (covering northern New York and New England as well as extreme southern Ontario and Quebec...Niagra Falls is gonna be popular), and finishes in far eastern Canada (New Brunswick and Newfoundland/Labrador). This is the whole shebang... darkness, corona, temp and environmental change, the works. Protective viewing equipment is needed at all times except during the brief moments of totality.

  3. One year ago today... “Do not get lost in a sea of despair,” John Lewis tweeted almost exactly a year before his death. “Do not become bitter or hostile. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way.”

  4. I saw this a few minutes ago... French President Macron on vaccination requirements: “I no longer have any intention of sacrificing my life, my time, my freedom and the adolescence of my daughters, as well as their right to study properly, for those who refuse to be vaccinated. This time you stay at home, not us. "In France, those who do not get vaccinated will no longer be able to go to restaurants, cafes (from the beginning of August), cinemas and museums (from July 21) and get on airplanes or trains (again from August). Alternatively, you will have to submit a negative test, which will no longer be free (49 euros for the PCR, 29 for the antigen). Macron then announced the vaccination obligation for medical personnel and for those who work in contact with fragile people. Since September 15, a nurse who has refused to be vaccinated will no longer be able to go to work and receive a salary. "We cannot make those who have the civic sense to get vaccinated bear the burden of inconvenience," Macron said. "The restrictions will weigh on others, those who for reasons incomprehensible in the country of Louis Pasteur, science and the Enlightenment still hesitate to use the only weapon available against the pandemic, the vaccine." "I am aware of what I am asking you," he said, "and I know that you are ready for this commitment. This is, in a sense, part of your sense of duty."

  5. I've observed this negative phase of the Nexus/Convergence for a while. I'm really exausted, especially today, but really tired everyday, so I need much sleep, and can't get myself to do much than staring at something and keeping the couch warm... And at the top of this is this "waiting". The Pillars of Harmony is part of the solution for our bodies. For True Home I just say Nature. Nature in all its varieties resonates with our bodies, so I will go out and play with the waterhose now ... and I've highlighted mine below. True Spirit: Independently-Mobile Beings (e.g. animals), Dependently-Immobile Beings (e.g. plants), Ritual, Labor, Arts, Technology, and Communication True Health: Exercising, Feeding, Socializing, Sleeping, Schooling, Entertaining, Meditating True Home: "Ocean," "Desert," "Wilderness," "Jungle," "Plains," "Urban," "Mountain"

  6. @Evelin "Happy but asymptomatic", now THERE'S an Eastern European statement of being for you! I love your hissing daughter. My almost-8-year-old daughter sometimes hisses but usually glares. I was so proud yesterday when Tom told me that she gave a prolonged death stare to an older man who told her how pretty she looks without her mask. INCINERATE THE PATRIARCHY, DAUGHTERS!

  8. My 9 yo daughter does this superbly lately: she hisses like a feline when she doesn't like/agree (with) something. Clear, physical, leaves no questions! I always liked that teeth-baring hissing habit of the blue people in Avatar as well. We're basically anxious monkeys, I say we need to revert to doing that! I laughed in deep empathy at your Eastern European parallel, yet the roots of feeling like this are NOT funny, so no amused emoticon. That doom-feeling cleared for me, though, almost on the day. I've been mostly calm for a week, although kind of bleak and definitely not happy, but then I'm seldom happy. Or maybe I'm happy but asymptomatic, ha! (My favorite meme so far.) I have that Realist feeling where I see what IS, and not all of it is good, so I smile when appropriate and remain serious or furious where appropriate. But so far I still trust the next day to bring something more. I can already feel the cautious inner tip-toe moves towards the Energy Shift of mending some relationships, though.

  9. We are a population of 5.398.804 in Norway. Yesterday 5 million of us had been vaccinated, and so far 75% has had their first vaccine and 40% has had their second (all above 18 years old). It's expected that all above 18 will be fully vaccinated by end of October this year. I've had my first (Pfizer) and everything went fine. Many knows that the more opportunities a virus has to spread, the more it replicates and can change. More people still need to understand that traveling without a vaccine they contribute to that - and become are a danger to society. But hopefully will these begin to see restrictions in their freedom more and more when more people are vaccinated in the different countries.

  11. Oh you mean just another day in the life of my Ashkenazi Doom mind? "Vague sense of loss, something impending and looming", hello from all the Eastern Europeans out there. So basically that energy shift was to make you all feel like Polish Jews. It's fun here! Their description of the locked loop between Intellectual and Emotional Centers resonates a lot. I like when I hear things Michael teaches described differently by other teachers - this one seems to be exactly what Kasia Urbaniak calls the thought-feeling loop. She frequently uses the phrase "the animal of the body", and talks about engaging that to break the loop. I feel bleak and unsatisfied. That's not like me. But no feeling lasts.

  12. I almost never have a vaccine reaction. With Covid I didn't have it either. The most that happens is that my arm is a little sore. But I think I did get immunized since I work in a hospital and I didn't get covid. I think my body is strong and I hardly get sick anymore.

  13. I wish I'd talked to my daughter-in-law who works at CAMH, a hospital in Toronto before I got my second vaccine. I was extremely anxious and worried about side effects because I have severe low platelets and a weak immune system. I was worried about having a flu-like side effect. I had a sore arm for a few days and more tired than normal. When I had my blood work done a few days later my platelet count went up to 67 (have had a problem keeping it above 30 on medication) - normal is 150-450. For me this was a bonus. I was told that younger people with strong immune systems usually have a stronger reaction, such as being extremely tired for a day or two. For the older age group and those with weakened immune systems the vaccine doesn't work as well or give as much immunity from COVID and normally don't have a severe reaction to the shot.

  15. @Cong, I think the translation in reverse would look better if it was something like this: “I no longer have any intention of sacrificing our lives, our time, our freedom and the youth of our children, as well as their right to study properly, for those who refuse to be vaccinated. This time you stay at home, not us."

  16. Twelve is the maximum number of spheres you can fit around a central sphere in 3 dimensions - and the points where they touch form the vertices of an icosahedron. Perhaps we have support circles of 12 because they are meant to empower us while we are physical - in other words, embedded in a three dimensional world. This is a result from the famous kissing sphere, or sphere packing problem - the densest packing of hyperspheres in any given dimension. Although, my theory could be wrong because we are all connected to higher dimensions. An icosahedron has a FIVE - FOLD rotational symmetry. Michael has touched upon the importance of five but has never really provided us with a deep explanation as to why. An excerpt: “And they are in beats that are Octaves and beats that involve the number 12 and the number nine and the number five.” With five seeming to come in with organisation of life plans like 5-year plans, Clusters of 5 lives, it would make sense that rotational symmetry, or a variation in the arrangement of the 12 vertices or spheres, representing an anchoring structure whether on the physical plane or otherwise, would be five. Also, Michael has spoken on entity structures closely resembling C60 which of course is 5 times 20. But there has already been discussion of C60 on another thread so I won’t go into that here. The next connection I will draw between icosahedra and the structure of reality becomes truly fascinating. “A quasiperiodic crystal, or quasicrystal, is a structure that is ordered but not periodic. A quasicrystalline pattern can continuously fill all available space, but it lacks translational symmetry”. This, to mean seems like how all the planes up to the messianic would be structured, having order but never truly repeating in a predictable way. Quasicrystals, by the way have been found to exist in nature, and often seem to have icosahedral structure and fivefold symemtry, something almost never found in regular crystals. Aperiodic tiling is a two dimensional analog of this. “In 1976 Roger Penrose discovered a set of just two tiles, now referred to as Penrose tiles, that produced only non-periodic tilings of the plane. These tilings displayed instances of fivefold symmetry. ” Examples of Penrose tiling. You can encode information in with them too (this is probably what is going on with lots of woven textiles and people’s trippy causal-plane like hallucinations). https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11042-020-09568-0 Interestingly, Penrose tilings are also a PROJECTION. “De Bruijn showed that Penrose tilings can be viewed as two-dimensional slices of five-dimensional hypercubic structures;[36] similarly, icosahedral quasicrystals in three dimensions are projected from a six-dimensional hypercubic lattice, as first described by Peter Kramer and Roberto Neri in 1984.[37]” In other words, there may be an intruiging connection between the presence of these tiles (and their 3d forms called Amman tilings which are found in quasicrystals) and higher dimensions - in other words a source of higher order - and likewise, if our ‘energy’ too takes a quasicrystalline form this too is also a shadow of much greater higher dimensional forms that may extend infinitely upwards. Bonus: Five is the FIFTH fibonacci number and the only fibonacci number to have itself as its place in the sequence apart from 1 which begins it. The ratio between adjacent numbers in the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5...) converge to the Golden Ratio, a very important number in nature. Phi = (by quadratic equation) And here once again we have 5.

  17. Since when did Macron have young daughters? Something must be lost in translation...or I'm not catching up with news Sorry I know this is off topic, but I can't help but notice it… in other news, San Francisco has 75% of residents age 12 or above fully vaccinated. However the case is on the rise due to variants. Luckily, the death toll remain close to zero in the past few weeks.

  18. Got my one and only Pfizer a couple of hours ago. I had Covid in February, not a full 6 months since, but a 3rd wave seems to be beginning here and I didn't want to wait longer. Very professional nurse: needle in first and a warning of "Slight jab" afterwards So far I feel nothing different. Feel even more like a world citizen, though. Bought a beetroot brownie to celebrate! My kid's dad got the same vaccine but didn't have the illness, so we get to compare side effects. I'm so glad my 76 year old mom is also fully vaccinated! As a triple grandma she needs to be protected. EDIT: I was a bit light-headed for a couple of hours, and a slightly sore muscle around the injection, only when I moved my arm, no other side effects. My brother who's had his 2 Pfizers, only had itching around the spot. My ex had the 1-in-a-1000 side effect of numbness in half his face. Mom had two days of sore arm, tiredness and a slight fever.

  19. I have no doubt she didn't say that... or if she did it's ironic. After knowing about her abuse of power and hubris of religiosity I no longer see her as someone to revere. There is more to be quoted but this from Wikipedia lays it out. Indian author and physician Aroup Chatterjee, who briefly worked in one of Mother Teresa's homes, investigated the financial practices and other practices of Teresa's order. In 1994, two British journalists, Christopher Hitchens and Tariq Ali, produced a critical British Channel 4 documentary, Hell's Angel, based on Chatterjee's work. The next year, Hitchens published The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice, a book that repeated many of the accusations in the documentary. Chatterjee published The Final Verdict in 2003, a less polemical work than those of Hitchens and Ali, but equally critical of Teresa's operations. In 2003, after Teresa was beatified by John Paul II, Hitchens continued his criticism, calling her "a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud." He further criticized the Catholic Church for attributing the recovery of a patient to a miracle, and for ignoring the testimony of the patient's doctor, who attributed the recovery of his patient to modern medicine. Chatterjee and Hitchens were called by the Vatican to present evidence against Teresa during her canonization process.

  20. The Paradoxical Commandments (Looking For More) by Dr. Kent M. Keith People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway. Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway. © Copyright Kent M. Keith 1968, renewed 2001

  21. I got finally my 2nd dose of vaccination last friday. After 1st dose I was only tired couple of days. This time side effects were much more stronger. I have been extremely tired, even exhausted, my arm was swollen and partially numb couple of days, I have had headache, muscle pain and mild nausea whole week and dizzy feeling. I would rather take these symptoms than covid anyway, it just means that the vaccine works.

  22. @Cong, I looked it up... I think he may be referring to Brigitte Macron's two daughters (??) so they would be Emmanuel Macron's step-daughters. Although you are likely right about the (French/English) translation as Tiphaine is 37 and Laurence is 44... hardly adolescents anymore. Children: Tiphaine Auzière (daughter), Laurence Auzière-Jourdan (daughter), Sébastien Auzière (son) That's good news about the vaccination rate in San Francisco.

  23. That news was from a few days ago... and then there was backlash. The resistance of the regressives to progressive change is strong. We shall overcome. This is from POLITICO today. PARIS — The French government, which last week introduced some of Europe’s toughest measures against COVID-19, has been forced to row back on some restrictions following a pushback from industries and street protests. Among the new rules, French President Emmanuel Macron sought to turbo-drive vaccinations by making proof of vaccination or immunity mandatory to enter cafés, restaurants and a range of other venues this summer. The scheme, which goes further than other big EU countries, was introduced to help break a fourth wave of COVID-19 infections in France, driven by the more contagious Delta variant. On Monday, the government spokesperson Gabriel Attal warned that the increase in cases was “stratospheric” after France’s incidence rate increased by 125 percent in a week. “Our rates were low, but this wave [of infections] can go up very quickly and reach very high numbers,” he told reporters. The COVID green pass — a digital or paper certificate that contains proof of vaccination or of immunity — is scheduled to come into effect next month. Wednesday is seen as a test day for the pass that will be introduced in museums, galleries and cinemas for events exceeding 50 people. But barely a week after it was announced the scheme is already coming under significant strain. More than 100,000 people, many of them waving anti-vaccination placards, took to the streets to protest against the pass on Sunday, raising fears the pass will become a symbol for dissatisfaction against Macron. On Monday, the government made several concessions, including lowering fines for noncompliance, pushing back deadlines and changing the rules for shopping centers. The government faces more hurdles ahead as the bill introducing the new measures went to parliament Tuesday. A group of senators has already indicated they will refer the bill to France’s Constitutional Council. France’s measures are in many ways unique. Its requirement to show a COVID passport to access such a wide range of venues, including restaurants, cafés, cinemas, theaters and shopping centers goes further than what has been attempted in most Western countries. The pass will also be required on trains, planes and coaches. Meanwhile, the U.K.’s Boris Johnson has pressed ahead with the planned “Freedom Day,” lifting most legal restrictions. Yet in a sign of convergence in the face of a wave of Delta variant infections, the U.K.’s buccaneering ambitions have already been tempered. After initially ruling out COVID passports for domestic use, Johnson announced a similar scheme for English nightclubs and other crowded venues from the end of September. Only proof of vaccination, not a negative test or proof of recent infection, would be acceptable as a passport to entry though — a move interpreted as being aimed at encouraging younger people to have the jab. The removal of COVID measures was widely hailed as a way to restart the economy, but many British businesses are currently hamstrung by staff shortages due to the number of people being instructed to self-isolate. A Downing Street spokesman insisted on Tuesday it was an “important tool” for stopping the spread of infections and urged people to comply. Shifting rules and deadlines The extension of the COVID-19 green pass in France was initially hailed as a success for Macron after vaccination appointments skyrocketed. 3.7 million people booked vaccination appointments on the popular Doctolib health website after the new restrictions were announced. But the government is still fine-tuning the details with industry bodies, raising accusations of confusing improvisation and impromptu decision-making. “They keep going back and forth, it’s unbearable and it’s been the same story since the beginning of the epidemic,” says Loic Hervé, a centrist senator and member of the opposition who is against the pass. “We know there are some [aspects of the pass] that are inapplicable, the rules are still not set in stone.” On Tuesday, the government was discussing the rules for shopping centers with industry leaders and local officials, after the government’s legal advisor the Conseil d’Etat said the pass was a “disproportionate” restriction on access to food. The government has also been forced to cut the fines for non-compliance from €45,000 to €7,500 for businesses and is giving bars and restaurants more time to vaccinate their staff and introduce controls. Despite the concessions, café and restaurant managers say the pass is unworkable and intrusive as they are required to check vaccination certificates against the ID documents of their customers. “The measures are far too radical, and it’s going to crash the economy,” says David Zenouda, bar owner and representative for the restaurant union UMIH. “Some bars and beach restaurants have terraces with over 200 seats, how are they going to manage?” Opposition catalyst Political opposition against the pass appears to be building after the leftwing Socialist Party on Monday joined the far-left France Unbowed and Marine Le Pen's National Rally in opposing it. Instead, they issued a statement calling on the government to make the COVID-19 vaccination mandatory in France “so that one half of the population isn’t checking the other half”. The National Assembly and the Senate are set to examine the bill introducing the COVID green pass and mandatory jabs for staff working in hospitals, care homes and clinics this week. It’s also possible the Constitutional Council will decide next week that the government is going a step too far in restricting freedoms. But there may be more political trouble down the road. On Sunday, a motley crew of discontents, libertarians and anti-vaxxers gathered in relatively small but unexpected protests across the country. More demonstrations against the COVID pass are planned for next weekend. The protests are already drawing comparisons with the anti-establishment Yellow Vests movement that that was sparked by opposition to Macron’s fuel-tax policies in 2018. “The government must watch out for [discontent] among the working classes,” said Hervé, “you can’t infantilize people, you’ve to talk to the country. It doesn’t work to shout at them.” The fear among government circles is that the pass will galvanize anti-Macron sentiment and be a magnet for opposition strands that have been kept at bay during the pandemic. Nine months from the presidential election, that is something the president will be keen to avoid.

  24. @Diane, I also read so many people having flu-like side effects and tiredness and how it meant having a strong immune reaction yet despite being young and female (estrogen is an immune enhancer by the way so women are expected to have more robust responses to infections in general but the downside is a greater predisposition to autoimmune disorders though) I didn't have a reaction and I wondered: "does that mean I'm not generating immunity"? , are my cells seeing that lil' spiky thing and being like "meh"?XD But I don't think that's likely for me and for many others. I read somewhere that in the trial groups a about 1/4th of people on the trials didn't experience side effects yet generated an immune response.

  27. This actually resonates a lot for me. I have been struggling with my perception of humanity for the past few months due to constant disappointment and 'special surprises' by the people I interact with and I became a bit of a hermit throughout this whole pandemic. My patience is really being tested. Even so, i want to be fair and give things a chance before dismissing or reaching a conclusion. To look at all these things that have been happening and to own it has been overwhelming. I suppose this is what happens when one takes it so much information to process continuously. I have shifted more focus on going out a bit more. Not in city centers or towns, but out in natural areas. It helps to remind myself that there is actually more to life and more to experience than being trapped in the drama of our current human civilization.

  29. Michael has mentioned that 1. Subtle/scalar energy is longitudinal 2. We will NEED to get off combustion based/transverse energy and move to energy based on longitudinal waves if we want to SURVIVE through climate change 3.Gravity is emergent This video corroborates all this and is a simple explanation in mainstream physics /relatively simple terms as to how longitudinal gravitational waves could come into being. https://medium.com/predict/eugene-podkletnovs-new-gravity-modification-experimental-video-b7813b04c6f8 Related: antigravity device design where magnetic fields cancel out leaving the electrogravitational wave. Bonus: “This appears to be a shared memory/experience of your incarnation around 2450 when a new or alternative power source is being used that is difficult to explain. It is a kind of plasma that uses something that might now be understood as quantum entanglement and so all of this source is "entangled" in a way that acts as a single thing. This is particularly incredible because a batch of the source can be upgraded or improved and this would "spread" to all of this particular energy. Because of this, it can also be susceptible to "infection" and this usually poses no problem because it can be stopped/healed by any input from any location that would then "spread" to stabilize the source.” The beginnings of this are being developed and the relevant terms would be superconducting qubits/entangled Bose-Einstein condensates etc.

  30. Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem (Looking For More) People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God; It was never between you and them anyway. [Reportedly inscribed on the wall of Mother Teresa's children's home in Calcutta, and attributed to her. However, an article in the New York Times has since reported (March 8, 2002) that the original version of this poem was written by Kent M. Keith.]

  35. ENERGY REPORT JULY 2021 2021 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Server (emphasized all year) CENTER: Higher Intellectual (emphasized all year) (and Intellectual Center) GOAL: Re-evaluation (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Perseverance (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) JULY launches or continues (for many) the deep dive into the Cynic Attitude and it has not been a comfortable dive for most of our students. July does not likely bring relief from this. The Cynic Attitude is a perception of life that points out everything that is not obvious to others, or what the Cynic determines is not obvious to others. This helps bring a perception of life and of the world that is not blinded by optimism or hope or faith or denial, etc. The Realist will always point out what is obvious and the Cynic points out what is not obvious. Pointing out “what is” and “what is not” is quite valuable for the world so that blind spots are avoided. However, when the Realist or Cynic lose their perspective and simply determine and decide for themselves what is and what is not, they become quite challenging perspectives to endure. When Cynicism in the Positive Pole, Contradiction, it points out what is not obvious. When Cynicism is in Negative Pole, Denigration, it only points out what is not. The Cynic in the Negative Pole has decided what is not or has become consumed by what is not and gets lost in this nothingness. When the negative Cynic only focuses on what is not, there is little left to feel of any substance, value, meaning, worth, etc. Denigration is not merely the feeling of emptiness and lack of meaning, but an effort to prove it and substantiate this emptiness and lack of meaning. This means there are many parts of the self or others around you or world events that are going to be making the case for meaninglessness and providing “proof” of this. Of course, it is all a lie, but when perception is skewed so intensely, everything is distorted. Many are sliding rapidly into this state or enduring it more than usual. A solution to returning to some sense of meaning, substance, value, worth, etc. is to aim for the Positive Pole of the Realist, which is OBJECTIVITY. If you are feeling the weight of Denigration and the “see, I told you life sucks!” mentality, you have lost all objectivity. You have lost your willingness to be open to the truth. As we have mentioned several times, the greatest threat to all of you is the loss of capacity for hearing, knowing, seeing, expressing the truth. When any Attitude is in the Negative Pole, it is rejecting the truth. If you are feeling the weight of the Cynic perception, it is likely you are rejecting or not seeing the truth. Objectivity means being fair. It means seeing the whole picture, not just a fraction or it or the dominant color or lack of color. The easiest way to understand how to be objective when you have lost yourself in Denigration is to LOOK FOR MORE. Look for more information, look for more insight, look for more time, more patience, more of anything that breaks the trajectory toward the black hole of Denigration. This is true on a global scale, as well. There is MORE. There is so much more than what you are seeing. There is so much more than what you focus on as the problems, challenges, and suffering of life. Your focus on these things is important and valid, but THERE IS MORE TO SEE THAN THIS. It is okay to see more than this. It will not destroy your capacity to focus on problems if you find time to take a break and breathe, treat yourself. It will not destroy your capacity to help others if you take a moment to enjoy a conversation or play a game or read or have a drink or take a bath. There is more. There is always more. If you find yourself spiraling into thinking or feeling that life is only one thing, you must do the work of knowing, creating, finding, the truth that there is more than this. NOTE: it may be helpful to get into the practice of keeping Cynicism in check as this is only the beginning of the wave of emphasis on this perception. **** [approximate] DATES OF INTEREST: JULY 7th - 12th: ENERGY SHIFT - HIGH sensitivity, emotionality, grief, mourning, nostalgia, vague sense of loss, and “something” impending and looming. This is not the first time this wave has hit our students. It is all anxiety or the locked loop/trap between the Intellectual and Emotional Centers without any Physical/Moving. It may be helpful to MOVE. Get out, walk, dance, be in contact with nature, or create something with your hands. JULY 26th = NEXUS: CONVERGENCE - an unusual merging of parallels focused on relationships recovering, healing, and being revitalized over time when they were once thought lost to time, conflict, or distance. HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JULY: EVEN WHEN YOU SEE AND KNOW AND EXPERIENCE EVERYTHING, THERE IS MORE - We are repeating the important note to carry with yourself as a reminder that what you see, know, and experience matters, but if your focus has shifted into a tunnel vision of darkness, heaviness, disconnection, etc. it may be time to consider that there is more, and to be open to it, look for it, invite it and BE it.

  36. Yes, re Mother Theresa, I think she's a prime example of how sometimes the message needs to be separated from the messenger. ie the last line: [Reportedly inscribed on the wall of Mother Teresa's children's home in Calcutta, and attributed to her. However, an article in the New York Times has since reported (March 8, 2002) that the original version of this poem was written by Kent M. Keith.]

  37. Michael Speaks Live The Nine Karmic Sequences October 27, 2013 Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] We will discuss the subject of The Nine Karmic Sequences today. As is often the case with our sharing insight or information, we will, first, clarify some terms and context. First, we will expand upon the term "Karma." This is a term we use to describe imbalance and intensity, often as a product of the interference of choice. While Karma is imbalance and intensity, it is also the striving for a return to balance. Ribbons and Karma are not the same things. This is why we use the phrase "Karmic Ribbons." Not all Karma has Ribbons, and though we have rarely spoken to this, not all Ribbons are Karmic. Anything "Karmic," then, is speaking to the imbalance and intensity that strives for a return to balance. These kinds of clarifications are not often necessary because we speak in fairly broad terms about Karma and Ribbons as they apply to the contexts that most of our students ask about, such as the arc of lifetimes and the process of returning to Tao. The significance of NINE is part of the consistency of what sets of factors or elements do for the fragment evolving. For example: 3 is a persistent state of imbalance that propels a fragment forward through Positive, Negative, and Neutral. 7 is the use of 3 as a form of evolution through Positive, Negative, and Neutral in Exalted and Ordinal States that are then integrated and build into the misnomer of "octaves." Octaves are actually repeating groups of 7. 9 is a set of factors that are about one's independent self-development, such as the 9 Needs, 9 Karmic Sequences, 9 Pillars. This must be, can be, and will be fulfilled by the individual, regardless of any relationship or circumstance, and often do not require many resources to do so. 12 is about one's more dependent, or more interdependent self-development, such as the 12 Support Circle Positions. We can explore all of these variations in another session, but for help in understanding why there are 9 Karmic Sequences, it is because these Sequences are not dependent, and are propelled only by the effort, or momentum, of the individual fragment. Karmic Ribbons often contribute to one of the Karmic Sequences, but not always. When we say "often" here, we mean nearly every Karmic Ribbon. But because not all contribute to these Sequences, we must state that not all Ribbons are part of these themes. In earlier lifetimes, Karmic Sequences are nearly synonymous with Karmic Ribbons. The process of stumbling into, creating, or imposing Karmic Ribbons, experiencing them, burning the Ribbons, and bring[ing] closure, however many lifetimes this takes, is in some way contributing to one of these Nine "stories" that are quite irresistible to every fragment. In fact, for some of our students, the use of the phrase "The Nine Stories" may be more appealing. As the Soul ages, these Karmic Sequences shift from a more literal and external dynamic to becoming more symbolic and internal, with Self-Karma contributing the the stories. In any given lifetime, at any point in your life, you are actively within some stage of at least one Sequence, and often in, at least, 3. Your Essence is always at some point in the stages of ALL of the Sequences, even if not actively exploring them within a particular lifetime. For some, a Sequence can take the entire cycle of incarnations to complete just once. For some, all of the Sequences have repeated over and over in variation throughout the cycle of lifetimes. THE SEVEN STAGES The Stages for each of the 9 Sequences are the same. We will share these, then, before elaborating upon the individual Sequences. STAGE ONE: OPPOSITION with a Negative Pole of Insularity and a Positive Pole of Inquisitive STAGE TWO: DECONSTRUCTION with a Negative Pole of Rebellion and a Positive Pole of Endurance. STAGE THREE: RESISTANCE/PAIN with a Negative Pole of Imbalance and a Positive Pole of Orientation. STAGE FOUR: COMPLIANCE with a Negative Pole of Somnambulist and a Positive Pole of Awakened STAGE FIVE: EXPERIMENTATION with a Negative Pole of Fragility and a Positive Pole of Solutions. STAGE SIX: COMPREHENSION with a Negative Pole of Defensiveness and Positive Pole of Adaptivity. STAGE SEVEN: RELEASE with a Negative Pole of Liberation and a Positive Pole of Wholeness. Regardless of whether Ribbons are involved, or not, each of you are somewhere at one or more of these Stages in relation to one or more Sequences, or Stories in your life. THE NINE KARMIC STORIES/SEQUENCES The Nine Karmic Sequences, or the Nine Stories of Your Life are as follows, with a brief synopsis for each, before we open the floor to questions. THE TEACHER STORY/SEQUENCE - The Sequence moves from being an Insular Student to being a Teacher of Wholeness. This is not always obvious or literal, and the Sequence of Study can be anything. Many of our Students are in this Sequence at some Stage. Keep in mind that "teacher" here can be a life of example, embodying the values learned across this Sequence. THE HEALER STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Sickness/Illness to Holistic Health. This can be for any of your bodies, such as the Emotional, Intellectual, etc. THE ENLIGHTENMENT STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Darkness/Myopia to Whole Confidence/Perspective. THE CREATIVITY STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Despair to Emanation of Wholeness. THE DISSEMINATOR STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Hoarding to Whole Communication. THE GUARDIAN STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Destroyer to Wholeness of Sanctuary/Home. THE INTEGRATOR STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Bigot to Acceptance of the Whole, or Wholeness. THE RESPONSIBILITY STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Sociopath to Equality of Wholeness. THE LEADERSHIP STORY/SEQUENCE - This Sequence moves from Insular Poverty to Whole Prosperity. These, then, are the Nine Stories/Sequences in extremely short description. Each will have the 7 Stages described earlier, and most of you will recognize these Stories in your life to some degree, or in the lives of those around you. PURPOSE OF KNOWING ONE'S STORY The point for knowing these Stories is that this understanding is yet another way to free you from the distractions and hangups of being Human, being incarnated. What often looks as if your life is not being lived, or is a distraction, or is a detour, is EXACTLY a part of your story, your journey, and your navigation of your story is what writes the story. Your stories are utterly unique, regardless of the universal themes. However utterly unique your story, you are surrounded by these stories, as well, and are not alone in yours. These are stories that cannot and will not be "escaped," but that you grow to love to tell through your life, and that you learn to appreciate in the lives of others, however dramatic, however inconvenient, however difficult and rewarding. They are of the many things that we do together as Sentience. Understanding where someone may be in his or her story frees you from presuming he or she should be at the same chapter as your own. It also helps you to understand why others may be able to manage their stories differently from you. You cannot compare your stories. You can only share them. The expansion of description for each of the Sequences is important, but we can do this over time. For now, this introduction can help you to begin exploring the concept and seeing how it might apply to your life. There is no effect from this knowledge but a sense of peace. There are no tricks, tips, methods for alleviating or avoiding or accelerating. This knowledge of your Story, your Sequence, can help bring you peace so that the writing of your story can be moved into brilliance, enthusiasm, interest, instead of exhaustion, confusion, and daunting. Questions and Answers We will open the floor now to your questions about this topic: QUEUE IS NOW OPEN [Maureen] Michael – Do we have all Nine Stories or Sequences going on in our lives, all at the same time, with differing levels of completion or do we pick and choose? [MEntity] Here is an example of how these might show up in a lifetime: ALL Sequences/Stories are in effect in some way, but some are Active, some are Passive, and some are Inactive. A fragment may have 3 Active Sequences in the current lifetime, which would mean these stories are clear, obvious, and fairly easy to identify. He has 3 Passive Sequences in the current life, which means that they are not at the forefront of the life, but might cycle up and down in emphasis over the life, or only come to be noticeable in certain circumstances. He might the have 3 Inactive Sequences, which are those Sequences just completed, (which can be within the current life, or from the previous life), and have not begun a new cycle. So Active, Passive, and Inactive, but always cycling in some way. Does this respond to your question? [Maureen] yes it does. Thanks [Janet] I don't quite see the connection between the Leadership story and poverty/prosperity. [MEntity] The phrase "MASTERY STORY" might be more resonant here. It is a Sequence that moves from abject failure to complete fulfillment, in any level of pursuit. [Janet] That helps. Thank you. [MEntity] The "Leadership" term comes from the fact that the story begins in pursuit of self-fulfillment, but ends in a broader state that benefits far beyond the self. No Mastery, no Leadership, can be ultimately fulfilled in any insular, self-absorbed, self-serving way. We chose the term Prosperity because this is inclusive of fulfillment on a multitude of levels that can be shared. Does this make sense? [Janet] Absolutely [Brian_W] Is there any preference in terms of soul ages or roles towards some stories / sequences vs others. Ie, leadership is preferred by kings, creativity preferred by artisans, healer preferred by server, disseminator preferred by sages, teacher preferred by priests? [MEntity] Yes. This is, actually, one of the main points for these Sequences. Every Role will have its inherent inclination toward a Story, and all of that Role will contribute to that Story, but rather than a Role being limited to its inherent inclinations, and to how life is experienced AS that Role, these Stories allow all Roles to experience the Stories of every Role. [Brian_W] Much like archetypes? [MEntity] So the most-grounded and solid of Kings with no Artisan influences of any sort from any angle can STILL experience the Artisan Story/Sequences. It will be his own version of such, but that is the way of all experiences anyway. Though the spectrum of factors of design, and the myriad of influences within a lifetime would seem to be extremely broad enough, these Stories ensure that no fragment is left without the option for experience as related to any other Role. This is vital for eventual reunion. Mathematical resonance is the magnetic draw for reunion, but this is not enough for True Reunion/Oneness. We must, as fragments, as Entities, as Cadres, have developed an empathy that becomes the key for our return to Tao. Mathematical resonance is the magnetism, but Agape, empathy, is the embrace. [Maureen] Would our choice of Overleaves, Astrological choices, etc. help us along with our stories as well? [MEntity] Maureen, yes, everything is a part of your Stories. Where you are in the cycle of Sequence contributes to how the life is planned, and what you do with that life is what contributes to the cycle of the Sequence. [GeraldineB] Is mathematical resonance or magnetism the basis of Magnetic "kingdoms"? [MEntity] Only insofar as the fragment who is Magnetic is at the 6th Level, but otherwise, no, those Kingdoms are evolved over time through experience and choice. [GeraldineB] Is a Magnetic "kingdom" the same story for all participants? [MEntity] Yes. The draw to be a part of a Kingdom is in great part because of the sharing of a Sequence or Sequences. For example, those in the Ram Dass Kingdom share the primary Enlightenment Sequence. This is not to say each are contributing to one another's Story, since most will not interact, but that there is resonance because of the individual stories that foster an empathy. [Maureen] What is the Sequence we share with Troy? [GeraldineB] Teaching I would think [MEntity] We will now ask a couple of questions for each of you. DID YOU FIND AT LEAST ONE OF YOUR STORIES/SEQUENCES AMONG THE NINE SEQUENCES? AND CAN YOU SENSE WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR STAGE OF THE STORY? [Brian_W] I'm guessing teaching, guardian, and responsibility, but unsure on the stage of each [Brian_W] they keep moving around [DianeHB] I see teacher and healer for me, at minimum [GeraldineB] Yes, I know that I'm definitely in at least the Integrator Sequence due to my Configuration, and am probably in the Comprehension Stage [tkmppi] enlightenment/comprehension [Janet] I am leaning toward teacher, enlightenment and leadership. [Dave_92] i saw several. it's confusing. [Maureen] I can see mine - somewhat [Connor] Creativity, I would think. [Mstudent_41] teacher is the only one I am sure of. [Dave_92] it just seems like life to me. beginning something and working through it. [Janet] Possibly experimentation stage for teacher and leadership, comprehension for enlightenment. But these are wild guesses. [MEntity] Now that we have shared an introduction, and you can explore more with the concept, we can expand upon this concept in further exchanges that may help with further assessments. For now, we will conclude here for tonight. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.

  43. This teaching brings me a some kind of peace learning what and who I am made of. Why I do and think certain ways. Knowing that I "made" who I am on purpose and learning that purpose brings me a strength I didn't have before. I just keep diving in and learning more as I grow. The more I meditate on these teachings and my higher self the better I become.

  44. This is usually true, unless you have any autoimmune stuff going on-then it seems to be either it doesn't do much or it goes a bit wild. I had a very bad night-incredibly sore arm, constant nausea, dizzy and joint aches. This morning, the nausea has receded some but the aches are still in full swing.

  45. @petra I am happy for you that you could be with one person throughout the whole year. My Cadence Mate was my closest contact in this place where I lived throughout the year. We kept in contact with each other throughout the pandemic to see how things were going and to keep up-to-date on the latest events. I am grateful for those exchanges. Otherwise, I try to extract some humor out of the year which is why I mentioned Mole. The wound healed and I have a light scar from it. When I die and go through my life review: My Guide friend stops by and says, "So 2020 was quite the year was it not? What stood out the most for you in that year?" Me: Well I was bitten in my leg by Mole. That is all I can remember. Guide: Well good for you. LOL

  46. This content from a private session in December 2014 was provided by Bobby. [Bobby] May I have the Role, Casting, Soul Age/Level, Cadre/Entity for R.L. please? [MEntity] This would appear to be the 7th Level Mature Scholar-Cast King from Cadre 2, Entity 4. [Bobby] Is this my King Task Companion? I wanted to ask specifically because over Thanksgiving last month, I had been re-reading the Messages From Michael books and it seems that more emphasis was placed upon Task Companions than I realized. It ranked right up there with one's Essence Twin. The difference being that the Task Companion was an outwardly reflecting relationship and the Essence Twin was an inwardly reflecting relationship. I know you've mentioned in recent channeling to others that there can be more than one Task Companion, and you've already given me King/Warrior/Scholar, but I'm basing this question upon whatever mathematical ties there may be to that one Essence, if it even exists as I understand it. [MEntity] The romanticized ideal of these specific relationships took some time to work through in our channels, so initial information came with some amount of that bias coloring these being "special." These unique relationships are unique in mathematical resonance, in being chosen by Essence as opposed to Personality, and in being secured across at least more than half of one's incarnation, if not 75% or more, but they do not trump any other relationship of significance. Once we were able to work through the biases of these biases, we were able to describe the Traveling Companions, for example, and to expand upon the concept of Traveling Companions. We would have been as comfortable with the use of Essence Twins for Traveling Companions if the channel who received this, first, had not come up with the phrase that now differentiates Traveling Companions from Essence Twins. One would simply have up to 6 Essence Twins. [Bobby] Do you have a more preferred terminology then to describe this sort of of relationship then? [MEntity] This is true of Task Companions, as well. There is only one in terms of the criteria for securing the Primary Task Companion, but a fragment can have up to 12. No phrase has been offered to differentiate the Primary from the rest, so the blurring between the Primary and the rest has remained persistent. [Bobby] Ok, so is this fragment then my Primary Task Companion or one of the up to 11 others? [MEntity] Those companions beyond the Task Companion could be referred to as World Companions, Project Companions, Touch-base Companions, Reality Check Companions, Awareness Companions. We could go on. If any of our channels asked us to begin sustaining a differentiation, we would choose a phrase. But because this would be "hair-splitting," we are not so concerned. A Task Companion is still a Task Companion. [Bobby] Then he is probably the Reality Check Companion then. lol [Bobby] So what role would my Primary Task Companion be then? And by Primary, I'm assuming that is the one that originates from the same Entity. [MEntity] Your Primary Task Companion is a Priest. [Bobby] Currently incarnate? [MEntity] No. We tend to relay to profiles those Task Companions of relevance to the current life. You have 11. Any Task Companion beyond the Primary may or may not be in one's own Entity. But the Primary will always be in the same Entity and ALL Task Companions will have a complementary Casting. [Bobby] Would you elaborate on the Task shared with this Primary then? [MEntity] There is no Task at the moment with the Primary. This is why the fragment is not involved in the life. Tasks are relative to any given life, and though there are themes that evolve, the Tasks are not necessarily intentional themes. [Bobby] So King-casting in my case? [MEntity] King-casting? [Bobby] My mistake, disregard that. I should have stated either Server, Artisan, or Warrior complementary casting for the Task Companions since my casting is Cardinal in Sage-casting. If that is not correct, feel free to correct it. [MEntity] Yes. We will clarify: Complementary in Polarities. So if one's Casting is Cardinal, the Task Companions will have Ordinal or Assimilative. Assimilative would have Cardinal or Ordinal. There are no same-Polarity Casting between Task Companions. You are correct. [Bobby] So then back to my original question then, R. L. is a secondary Task Companion then, correct? [MEntity] Oh. Yes. [Bobby] Ok, thank you. ### end of content You may comment on this session in Bobby's post. See Task Companions Clarified.

  47. Some of you know that I cry everyday -it just feels so good and freeing! But I haven't particularly felt the "HIGH sensitivity, emotionality" more than the usual haha I've been sleeping like 8 hours at night (I usually do 6 or 7) plus 1 hour naps during the day. My dreams involve connections with my guides and visits to my White Palace (I call this my sanctuary of healing and replenishment) I've been also waking up one hour earlier to practice channeling and intuitive art. Early mornings are my favorite time...it's still dark, I am super lucid, the silence and calm brings out my creativity I also got back to my intuitive readings and energy healing broadcasts on YouTube (Tue Thu and Sun, 10am CST/4pm UK for those who would like to stop by!) my new schedule works well to keep me grounded and inspired, with a sense of purpose I finished the final season of The Good Place....(what a wonderful show!) And I had a dream where @Amanda and Kristen Bell were sisters! LOL (Perhaps she's your entity mate!) holding you and your dad in Love and relief, dear ((( @AnnaD)))

  48. This is a reproduction of this session: Michael Speaks: Internal Monads. You may discuss the content within that original transcript post. September 12, 2010 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We can begin now. We have been asked to speak about the processes we have named “The 7 Internal Monads.” We can define “Monad” in many ways, but here we will describe it as “the natural process toward wholeness,” or “the structure provided for two parts of a whole to eventually manifest even greater than the sum of those parts.” A Monad will always have two parts that are vital to the whole, but are eventually resolved, or comprehended, so that those two parts ARE the whole, and not divided. There are Internal and External Monads: the External Monads are variations on relationships between fragments; whereas Internal Monads are variations on relationships with the self, or within the self. These Monads are ALWAYS about “manifesting,” or generating a material counterpart as representation for that structure, process, and eventual wholeness. The External Monads are obvious in that they deal with the space and time between two incarnated fragments, but the Internal Monads are not often understood as having physical/manifested counterparts or representations, because they are often more abstract. However, these Internal Monads’ physical/manifested counterparts are THE LIFE, ITSELF. As we describe each Monad, this may become more clarified and obvious. The 7 Internal Monads are processed and manifested by the Personalities across lifetimes, and these processes and manifestations then contribute to the higher processes of the Essence that must complete a set of 7 Internal Monads for each Level of each Soul Age. In every lifetime, the Personality starts “from scratch” in initiating and taking on these Internal Monads, but the Essence retains the benefit of each Personality’s effort and does not have to start from scratch. Therefore, in any given lifetime, the Essence may be at the 4th Internal Monad, while the current Personality is in the 3rd Internal Monad, for instance. If that same Personality progresses to successfully process the 5th Internal Monad, then it progresses the Essence closer to completion of that particular Soul Level. If it helps one to differentiate between the Essence process of these, and the Personality process, it could be said that the Essence integrates Internal Monads, and the Personality contributes to that by processing as many of the 7 “Rites of Passages” as possible within a lifetime. “Internal Monads” and “Rites of Passages” are rather interchangeable here, but to make it easier to understand, this differentiation may help. It is rare that any Personality completes all 7 Internal Monads, or Rites of Passages within one lifetime. Even if a Personality lives to 80 years old, he or she may still have not completed any Rite of Passage beyond the 2nd, or 3rd, for instance. Using a very simple analogy: Imagine that the successful completion of a Rite of Passage is akin to a Personality filling a basket for Essence. Let us use Oranges as that which must fill the baskets. Personality One within a Soul Age Level will begin the process by fulfilling the First Rite of Passage in being successfully born. This fills the first basket of oranges for Essence. Personality One is also able to process Rite of Passages Two and Three, filling two more baskets with Oranges collected. Personality One takes on the beginning of the Fourth Rite of Passage and begins putting Oranges in the basket for Essence, but never really gets past this Rite of Passage, even though she lives to 90. She will remain locked in a mindset, behavior dynamic, and local perspective that is akin to having never evolved beyond a 30-something year old, despite her physical age. Personality One dies, and Essence now moves that row of baskets out of the way, sets up a new row of baskets for Personality Two, and Personality Two now begins his or her process of gathering Oranges for those baskets. Even though the new Personality must start from scratch in filling the baskets, it is easier now that there is precedence and experience that the new Personality would have access to, if open to Essence. In short, there must be AT LEAST one Personality/incarnation that can fill all the baskets successfully within one lifetime as a means to move Essence on to the next Level of Soul Age. In some rare instances when an Essence moves from one Soul Age Level into the next Level within the same lifetime, then that Personality not only filled the baskets enough to allow for Essence to move to the next Level, but now that there is a new Level, the Personality actually starts again from scratch in filling the baskets relevant to that new Level. This is similar to living “two lifetimes in one.” We say that it is similar, but it is not literal, though often it actually does appear to be a distinct line that defines that transition and then the lifetime seems to be divided into two very different lives. When this happens, the Personality will go through a kind of psycho-emotional “death” as its completion of 7 Internal Monads, and then a kind of psycho-emotional “birth” as it begins the next Level. There are 7 Rites of Passages/Internal Monads, and we will briefly describe each now. Each Internal Monad has 7 Stages within it. Each Stage has a Positive and Negative Pole. Every process through an Internal Monad will mean entering the Negative Pole, then exiting from the Positive Pole for each Stage. This means that a “successful” Internal Monad would be completing the 7th Stage in the Positive Pole, leaving the entire Monad in the Positive Pole. In keeping with the baskets of oranges analogy, a Negative Pole would simply be an unfilled basket. The 7 Internal Monads are: Birth, Autonomy, Independence, Manifestation, Recreation, Comprehension, and Death. These may be called by different names through our various channels, but the basic information should remain consistent. Although each Rite of Passage is associated with various time frames represented by the ages of the Body, they are not specifically tied to those time frames. Different cultures and different societies and different Body Types will affect how the process of these Passages go. For certain cultures where life spans are only 20 years, vs other cultures where a lifespan may be 100 years, one can see how the Monads may play out differently. Those cultures and societies where life is more condensed tend to attract those who are working through Infant, Baby, and Young Levels, whereas Late Young, Mature and Older Souls tend toward cultures, societies, and bodies that emphasize length of life. We include in these differentiations the reference to “society” because social constructs, even within the same culture, may emphasize life at different paces, and thus have different time frames relative to the Passages. That being said, in general: Birth is obviously at Birth, where Autonomy is usually relative to the individual taking his or her first steps, and Independence is relative to an individual separating his or her identity and primary resources from the influences of his or her caretakers (parents); Manifestation is relative to an individual returning to a sense of innocence and personal meaning about the self and life; Recreation is relative to an individual freeing himself or herself from the momentum of “purpose” and shifts into an emphasis on “enjoying life,” or re-creating it; Comprehension is relative to the onset of whatever will end the life, and the individual’s ability to come to terms with his or her mortality; and Death, of course, is exiting the Physical Plane. Many of our students presume that Birth and Death are Internal Monads that are a given, but that is not accurate. The successful completion of Birth is indicated by “staying alive.” For the most part, this is marked by good health. If a body dies before the age of 3, it did not successfully complete the Birth Monad. The successful completion of Death is indicated by the impact one’s death has on those who remain physical. If those who remain are left devastated, deeply attached, and profoundly tied to the physical version of oneself, then one has not successfully “died.” The death, itself, is only the beginning, and the stages involved are done post-death, by working with those still incarnated in processing their grief. Completing all 7 Rites of Passage within a single lifetime takes practice, effort, and commitment to an extent that is often not available or an inclination of every Personality, so an Essence will remain within a single Level of Soul Age as long as it takes. Within a lifetime where the Personality does not complete an early Rite of Passage, such as, say, the 3rd Internal Monad of Independence, it means that this person has left that Internal Monad paused in the Negative Pole, and every Internal Monad attempted beyond that will be locked in the Negative Pole, as well. Using the baskets of oranges as an analogy, it would mean that no matter how hard that Personality tries to fill baskets 4, 5, and 6, they will only be able to fill them to the extent that basket 3 is filled. In cases such as this, which are not uncommon, it is possible to “go back” and fill the unfilled basket, or to complete the 3rd Internal Monad, freeing up the capacity to complete the next. This would mean, even if the Personality is in her 50s, that she can work through her issues related to Independence, self-reliance, and her relationships with Authority, as a means to then work on her 4th Internal Monad, and so on. In short, it is a valid and relevant statement that “it is never too late to have a happy childhood,” as an example for completing incomplete Passages. We wish to point out here that while our teaching can be understood and made useful at any age, it is not until the successful completion of the 4th Internal Monad that the full extent of its application can be comprehended. This is why you see so few fellow students among you, or even that you see so few interested in our teaching, in general; it is simply not very interesting or truly applicable to those who “do not know themselves.” This is not a judgment, but a matter of fact. For this teaching to have its full effect, one must be awake, and most who have not completed the 4th Internal Monad are still in some degree, if not completely, asleep. By “asleep” and “awake,” we simply mean the spectrum between self-absorption and self-awareness. Self-absorption, or being asleep, is marked by a preoccupation with the self, such as through defensiveness, self-indulgence, presentation, brooding, consuming, etc. And self-awareness, or being awake, is marked by, for example, valued sensitivity, right intuition, concentric compassion, enthusiastic curiosity, a kind presence, patient resonance to others, and no defenses or shields. Those are examples, but there are others, of course. We have covered Birth and Death in terms of successful or unsuccessful completion, and we will now quickly describe the other 5 Internal Monads in terms of the same. The 2nd Rite of Passage, which is Autonomy and is initiated by the capacity to walk on one’s own, is often tied to one’s sense of Confidence. To the degree that one is Confident is the degree to which this Internal Monad was completed. When we speak of “confidence” here, we are not speaking in terms of your being able to speak well in front of a crowd, but in terms how willing one is in trying anything at all that is unfamiliar. This is not a matter of trying what one has no interest in trying, but in anything unfamiliar to you that you may have even the slightest interest in trying. This would extend into even those areas one must do for oneself because it is known that it is Good Work, even when one does not want to do them. For instance, going to an interview for a job that is important to you, even as you hate the interview process. A successful 2nd Internal Monad would mean that you do it anyway, even as you acknowledge the discomfort. That is Confidence in this context. An unsuccessful completion of a 2nd Internal Monad is often marked by classic Co-dependence, the inability to do much of anything without a reference to someone else. It is the inability to walk on one’s own. We do not refer to those who have physical disabilities, but anyone, regardless of mobility. The 3rd Rite of Passage, which is Independence, is initiated by the process of separation of identity from one’s caretakers, and establishing the self as its own authority. The successful completion of the 3rd Internal Monad is marked by the capacity to provide for oneself. Providing for oneself does not mean isolating oneself as the only resource, but would include knowing when to ask for help, and how to receive that. The unsuccessful completion of this Internal Monad is marked by either having constant combat with anyone suggesting Authority, and/or resigning from the responsibility of caring for oneself. The 4th Internal Monad, or Rite of Passage, which is Manifestation, is initiated by one’s mid-life assessment as a means to determine the meaning of the life lived so far, and then calibrating the life to an updated course or path so that Essence may manifest. Part of that process and assessment means looking into the past as far back as childhood, and in that looking, finding all of the things that you determined have defined you, made you happy, that have fulfilled you as a child or teen, and then nurturing that same innocence in your life as an adult. A successful completion means truly liking who you are, and embracing the playfulness of your life as you move deeper into it as an embodiment of your Essence, or core Being. An incompleted 4th Internal Monad is often marked by an attempt to replicate the life that was once seen as so innocent, locking the person into a state that desperately seeks meaning, importance, and purpose. The 5th Internal Monad of Recreation is marked by a realization of relief from the need for purpose, meaning, and importance, but finds the emphasis being upon those little things that make the life worth living (on your terms). The life is literally “re-created” in a way that is a new paradigm, free from the burdens of navigation and direction, but entirely embracing of wandering, coasting, and “enjoying the view,” so to speak. The successful completion would often show up as a new enthusiasm for a layer of life that was once cluttered and clouded by over-eagerness and over-anticipation. There is a softness to the life in a way that was never experienced before, and a true joy in many things that would otherwise be dismissed. An incompleted 5th Rite of Passage might show up as bitterness, regret, anger, resentment, and disgust, sometimes concluding that life has no meaning or point, and therefore condemning anyone or anything to pointlessness and meaninglessness. And finally, the 6th Rite of Passage, Comprehension, is marked by the onset of that which will be the cause of death. This is the only Rite of Passage that can most-often be processed in a matter of seconds. A successful completion would show up as a surrender to the reality of mortality, and a full review of the life in a way that brings comprehension to the fact that one has lived and one is now dying. This can happen in a car crash, or in a long-term illness, etc. Time takes on a completely new dimension in this Passage. The incomplete Internal Monad here would show up as anything representing a rejection of mortality, ranging between resignation, apathy, to delusion, dementia, and denial. In instances such as a car crash, the individual may actually “re-live” the entire life in new ways that account for corrections of betrayals, missed opportunities, etc. before actually exiting. That experience can be a means of review, or as a means of denial. We will conclude here, then, in speaking about the 7 Internal Monads, and open the floor to the first 5 questions, due to time constraints. ****QUEUE IS OPEN**** We will respond to further questions after this transcript is posted in your “TLE FORUMS.” [Geraldine] Michael. I still don't understand how the “two lifetimes in one” works. If a Personality has to go through all 6 IMs in the same incarnation in order to reach the 7th — How does one get all six of those “oranges” in the basket by age 40 in order to do an early 7th? (such as AnnH). Or my son-in-law Brian Fisher who went through this by age 30. Especially since neither one would have been considered “all in positive poles” at those ages. How would one work with “those still incarnated in processing their grief,” if there is no grief? Would one's concurrents processing IMs help since we all started our incarnations at the same Soul Level? [MEntity] We did not elaborate fully into the “two lifetimes in one”, or the transiting of Soul Levels within a lifetime, because we had elaborated on this in other transcripts. However, we will try to clarify again here. If an Essence has 5 or more baskets full, so to speak, upon creating a new Personality, then that Personality is only tasked with the potential to fill those remaining baskets. However, to get to those baskets 5, 6, and 7, for example, the body and Personality must still fill baskets 1 through 4 in its own way in order to even get to the 5th basket. After baskets 1-4 have been filled multiple times by multiple Personalities over multiple lifetimes, then each subsequent lifetime/Personality has a potentially easier time fulfilling those same baskets. Although there are physical counterparts to each Monad, which is often associated with age time frames, we have also pointed out that they are not tied to those age time frames. Beyond the factors of culture and society as influences, we can also say that one's PSYCHOLOGICAL process is just as physical a counterpart as one's physical aging. Therefore, when one is transiting a Level within a lifetime, that Personality can quickly (by age standards) be Born, Walk, Gain Independence, Manifest Essence, and then begin the Recreation process, all by the end of one's teen age years. This is because while there are certain physical cues that are tied to the Passages, there are also Psychological cues, and these are just as, if not more, vital than the more obvious Physical cues. This means that rather than having a physical retirement/recreation due to age, it happens due to psyche, and rather than physically dying due to accident, illness, or suicide, there is a psychological “death” that then moves through a “birthing” process. Those who transit a Level within a lifetime are now throwing off the usual cues that one can more obviously see in terms of one “growing up,” so these Personalities can often seem more complicated, difficult, and lacking significant maturing processes that another person might show. They do not necessarily appear to be any wiser or more together than any other, and more often, actually, appear not to be particularly wise, and often quite scattered. This is because the psyche is not only developing at a different pace from the body, but by the time the body is older, then the psyche is reborn again in a way that is quite disorienting. This complex process is why this kind of transition is rare, except in Older Souls. Once the fragment in transition has filled the 7 baskets, then the life is marked with a new set of baskets to begin filling, which are rarely ever filled beyond the 4th basket in those kinds of lifetimes. [Maureen] What “happens” in between IMs – for example: Having successfully completed the 4th IM – one could whiz into the 5th or take a decade – If it takes a decade is it like being on a plateau or is it a mix between the 2 IMs ?? [MEntity] While one is “in” a Passage, there is a definite sense that there is living to do. When one is “between” Passages, there is a definite sense that there is work to do. We are using the term “living” here to describe the experience of submersion into the life that often feels like being underwater, then coming up for air, over and over. We use the term “work” here to describe the experience of finally being on land and moving your way over territories of relevance and meaning. For instance, during the 3rd Internal Monad, there may be waves of great angst, rebellion, and constant inner turmoil, mixed with homesickness, deep gratitude, and a sense of self emerging as one breaks away from the influences of parents. Upon completion of that Monad, then the business of income, maintaining an apartment, paying bills, etc., then comes into focus. It might be more appealing to describe the differences between being In and Between Monads as “living” and “learning,” as what was lived through the Passage is now put into practice before the next Passage. [Oscar] Hello Michael. Could you please elaborate a little about how exactly Body Type can affect the process? [MEntity] Active Body Types, such as Saturnine, Mercurial, Martial, and Solar tend to process Internal Monads “faster” than the Passive Body Types of Lunar, Jovial, and Venusian. The Active/Positive Body Types of Saturn and Solar being the “fastest” while the Passive/Negative of Lunar being the “slowest.” We speak of these in terms of “pure” Body Types, so it is wise to keep in mind that there are no “pure” Body Types, all having a mix of other energies, and influences. The reason for their “speed” of processing a Passage is relative to the Primary Glandular System that regulates experiences for that Body. For instance, the Anterior Pituitary and the Thymus tend to help the body process experiences far more “quickly” than that of the Pancreatic system. This is because the Anterior Pituitary, for instance, is a stimulus for all other glandular systems, and the Thymus regulates the overall health/immunity of all systems, so their being the primary influence is powerful in these Passages. Whereas the Pancreas is insular in its processes, even though they do ultimately affect the entire system. It is that insularity of the process of consumption and production of fuel that contributes to the slower processing of experiences for the body. [Karine] How can you “predict” when someone will enter a monad? For example, you told me that you think I will begin my 4th internal monad near the end of 2012. Do Essences plan in advance during the course of a life when a personality will enter the next monad? [MEntity] We can only see the same things that you can see in terms of Passages, though we may be able to see it more clearly. So when we can see a time frame for completion of a Monad, using the analogy of the baskets, we are basing this on how full the basket is, and the pace at which you have been filling it. We can then extrapolate from there. The same could be said for those that are slated to begin. We can look at the previous Passage and the factors that went into entering it, filling the basket, and exiting it, and how much time was spent between other Passages, proportionally speaking. That being said, yes, Essence will anticipate a time frame that “looks good” for entering a Passage, and we can see those notes, if they are there. In the end, whether we use calculations, or the notes in your records from Essence, it will always be the Personality that decides whether and when to enter into a Passage. So we may be very far off in our information in the end. [Bobby] In your presentation of the 7th IM, there seems to be far more to it than I realized. For instance, I didn’t realize that to transit it in the positive pole, if those left behind grieved terribly over your passing it could keep you from completing it in the positive. I had an aunt who lost a son and never seemed to get over it. Would that be an appropriate example of him finishing his 7th IM in the negative pole? Joey Williams was his name by the way, if that helps. [MEntity] It is not so much in the depth of the grieving, but in the length of time in grieving, and yes, to the extent that one has not helped to prepare loved ones and friends for one’s death, and to the extent that one lacks the ability to comfort those “left behind,” then the 7th Internal Monad is not completed. There will always be at least one lifetime/Personality who dies within a Level in a way that those who remain physical will fully grasp that that Personality had a full life, and that death was embraced without surprise or regret or terror. Because death is so difficult for even the oldest of souls to experience, it takes only one lifetime for this to happen as a means for the Level to be transitioned. And if one ponders the 7 Passages for a moment, it may become more obvious that one who has moved through each in a Positive Pole, may have generated a life and network of relationships that more easily comes to terms with that death. That is not to say that even the most successful of 7th Internal Monads would leave no one grieving. Grief is natural and important, and is a process of accepting a profound truth that replaces a previous truth. In the case of the fragment you mentioned as an example, we think that fragment is still working on completing that Monad, and remains in the process of support for the one who is grieving. Some fragments choose to remain in that process “as long as it takes.” We will conclude here. Good evening to each of you.
