Channel: Troy Tolley April 10, 2011 Michael Speaks: Nine Realities MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with the requested topic of "9 Realities." First we will define "reality" here as "realm or dimension of experience." The term "reality" is always used literally in terms of a dimension that is apparently separate from another, but these realities often overlap or exist one within another, and there is nothing static about them. Each of you, regardless of where you "exist" as you know reality, will exist 9 versions of that Reality, and so it might be more accurate to call these "dimensions;" you exist within 9 Dimensions of any given Reality, so to speak. However, your Primary Reality is usually dictated by which of these Dimensions your focus is present, at any given time, or within any given space. There are actually, technically, only 3 Realities, but each of these has 3 Dimensions, or angles, from which that Reality is experienced, and so it is fair to describe these in terms of 9, as each is an exploration of a facet of the self. When we use a system of 9, we are usually describing a part of our teaching that is interpreting one's exploration of facets of the self. That system of 9 is usually built from a stack of 3's. As we discuss with you these variations on Reality and their corresponding Dimensions, we are describing a major part of the structure that is responsible for generating alternate universes, or parallel realities. Parallel Realities converge and diverge based upon the degree to which these 9 Realities are in harmony within the self, within your community, and within your species. As Parallel Realities "spin off" or branch off from the SELF, from COMMUNITIES, and from the Species. For today, we will speak in more direct emphases on the Self as it relates to these Dimensions, but from that, one may extrapolate how this spreads to the community and global levels. As we explore these Dimensions and Realities, we suggest not assigning to them any numerical value, at least in terms of progression, because these are more like Facets, and not steps. The first Reality and its 3 Dimensions we will discuss is the Physical Reality. This is the most-solid of all Realities, of course, and is an anchor for playing out and exploring all other Realities. All other Realities must be out of sync for a Physical Reality NOT to be shared. Each Reality's Dimensions are a form of positive, negative, and neutral (or assimilative) experiences/Dimensions of that Reality. Each Reality is polarized by Positive and Negative attributes that could be described in terms of WANTS and NEEDS. We remind you that "positive" and "negative" are never used in our teaching to indicate anything more than a difference between broader focus and acute focus, or Cardinal and Ordinal, or creative and focused, etc. The Poles describe the spectrum, and the greatest understanding that can from the use of the Poles as a form of navigation is that the more one moves toward the Positive Pole, the more that BOTH Poles are included. That is because the Positive is Inclusive and the Negative is Exclusive, both for very practical functions. Each Reality will then have a ground for resolution, or Assimilation, where Positive and Negative play out. For your Physical Reality, the Negative Reality, or the DIMENSION OF NEEDS is described by your CRAVINGS. For your Physical Reality, the Positive Reality, or the DIMENSION OF PHYSICAL WANTS is described by your DESIRES. For your Physical Reality, your Assimilative Reality, or the DIMENSION OF RESOLVE is in your PHYSICAL HEALTH. These 3 Dimensions are three very different versions of Physical Reality. In other words, every fragment will have a Dimension of Reality that is dictated/created by his Cravings, and one dictated/created by his Desires, and both of these are reflected in his Health. There will never NOT be those 3 Dimensions of Physical Reality for any fragment. Physical Reality, then, can become a powerful factor for with whom one shares his or her Physical Space and Time, as shared Dimensions of Craving, Health, and Desires become important factors for sharing that space and time harmoniously. If one shares Physical Space and Time with any other, then there are AT LEAST shared Cravings and/or Desires, and how these are managed is played out in the collective Health. The next bundle of Dimensions that create Reality could be called the Emotional Reality. Fragments standing in the same room at the same time may have very different Emotional Realities. Again, this Reality is explored through Positive, Negative, and Neutral facets that exist at all times. Again, this Reality is polarized by Wants and Needs. In this case, the Dimension of Want would be your INTENTIONAL DIMENSION, and the Dimension of Need would be your DIMENSION OF LONGING. These Dimensions are then played out, or resolved, in the DIMENSION OF PERCEPTION/RELATIONSHIPS. It could be said that the Assimilative, or meeting ground for the Polar Dimensions of each Reality are always reflected in the Health, so that in the Emotional Reality it is played out in the Health of Relationships, or Perception. There is never a fragment who exists without each an Intentional, a Longing, and a Relationship Dimension to his or her Emotional Reality. The next Reality then is the Intellectual Reality. Again, this Reality is polarized by Dimensions of Want and Need, which are played out or resolved. The Intellectual Reality includes the Dimension of Ideals, the Dimension of Explanations, and resolved in the Dimension of Comprehension or Insight, which might be more accurately described as the Dimension of Philosophy. There will always be for each fragment a Dimension of Intellectual Reality that is generated from the Ideal, one that is generated from the Explained, and one that is the meeting ground of both of these in the Health of one's Personal Philosophy. We will elaborate by defining some of the terms we used: Desire is that which is Wanted Physically, and is usually motivated by Pleasure. Cravings are that which are Physically Needed, and usually motivated by Survival, or Healing. Intention is that which is brought to any relationship to generate that which is Wanted Emotionally, and is usually motivated by The creation of Meaning. Longing in that which is brought to any relationship that which is Needed Emotionally, and is usually motivated by the lack of Meaning, or fulfillment. Ideals describe the reality generated from what is Wanted Intellectually, and usually motivated by Affection, or collective improvements. Explanations describe the reality that is generated from what is Needed Intellectually, and is usually motivated by Momentum, or that which is presumed to be known. It may also be described as motivated by one's Prejudices. To the degree that one's Physical Reality and its Dimensions are healthy is the easily measured by the consistency and nature to which that fragment LAUGHS. To the degree that one's Emotional Reality and its Dimensions are healthy is easily measured by the degree to which that fragment is HAPPY. To the degree that one's Intellectual Reality and its Dimensions are healthy is easily measured by the degree to which one is at PEACE, or PEACEFUL. We will pause here for questions that may be relevant to the topic. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ************** [Brian_W_] Regarding the emotional dimension, you mentioned that it has the Negative, Positive, and Neutral Poles. Is there a technique similar to the "hands-across" technique to be able to bring the dimensional pole into the positive? MEntity: No, because the term "pole" here is used to describe the 3 Dimensions of each Reality that are rather static and existing at all times, so there is no need for moving from one to the other, but that each would be tended to, understood, and regarded as valid Realities for you. [Brian_W_] Okay, I misunderstood how "pole" was applied here. Thank you MEntity: The same could be said of every Overleaf, as well. Each Pole and its resolution exist at all times, and while an emphasis might be in one Pole or another, each Pole will continue to exist for each person and each overleaf. So while one may move toward the Positive Pole of an Overleaf, this merely means that he is now INCLUDING the entire spectrum of that Overleaf. The same could be said of the Dimensions of Reality: the more one focuses on his Positive Dimension, the more the Negative is managed and healthy. For instance, if one tends to his Wants, it is almost always the case that his Needs are then already taken care of. Or, in a more specific example, if one would like to focus on his Dimension of Desire, he will be including his Dimension of Craving. Or, if one were to focus on his Dimension of Ideals, he would automatically be including his Dimension of Explanations. However, if one were to be focused on the Dimension of Cravings, it is very difficult to tend to the Dimension of Desire. To the degree that you, as an individual, tend to your "higher" Dimensions, or your Positive Pole Dimensions, the greater the Laughter, Happiness, and Peace your experience of Reality becomes. However, this often means emphasizing the Negative Poles, or the "lower" Dimensions of Reality, first, which can then lead to the "higher." Regardless of where one's emphasis or focus is, these 9 Realities or Dimensions will exist, and either be aligned with others' or not. [Oscar] Do the three Realities have any correlation to the Centering, e.g. Moving, Emotional, Intellectual? MEntity: Only in terminology, for convenience. However, your Centering would exist within each of these Dimensions. [Geraldine] This might apply more to alternate or parallel realities. I know many who are going through memory loss, and not all for the same apparent reasons. As one goes through major mindset changes of any of the three Realities, does this alter one's current reality enough to "forget" parts of one's previous realities? Or, secondarily, is this part of the cause of memory loss? MEntity: Memory is quite directly linked to and affected by the management of these Dimensions and Realities, because the Personality's memory is biological, and when a parallel is generated, it is because the Intellectual and Emotional Dimensions have moved into such a polarized state that they branch off a Physical Dimensions, which means a new body, so to speak. In either case of Divergence or Convergence, this "new" copy is always different enough to affect the line of (or lack of) memory. However, even within a given set of Realities, or 9 Dimensions, the memory can be affected by the various ways one manages his or her Dimensions. Every fragment will tend to have an emphasis of Dimension in each Reality, so that either the Wants or Desires are active in the consciousness for creation. If one has been emphasizing Cravings, Longings, and Explanations or Prejudices, he will alter his memory of that time when he has moved his emphases into Desire, Intentions, and Ideals. Because the Negative Poles are so acute in focus, when the focus shifts into a broadness, that which was so important or distracting or demanding might be completely lost to memory or even become romanticized to a great degree. It is not that the linear history is lost, in this case, but that the pleasure, meaning, and affection have been extracted and the symbols are no longer necessary. [Geraldine] In fact that happened to me when I finished my 5th IM. MEntity: On a more practical level, if one is having problems remembering where he has placed his keys, or remembering a phone number, this would simply be a matter of blood flow to the brain and its exercise by the user. We will continue, then. The information shared here can be used in practical ways when one looks at his life through these dimensions, and when others are seen as potentially having very different Realities and Dimensions than those that are yours, or of importance to you. Understanding that the DECISIONS you make to fulfill your Desires leads to moments of CHOICE that either build upon your Reality, branch off your Reality, or join with other Realities. Understanding that the DECISIONS you make to fulfill your Cravings leads to CHOICES that create, branch, or merge Realities, can help you to tend to those smaller steps that lead to larger, pivotal experiences. DECISIONS are the steps to CHOICES, and Choices generate your Realities. And by "generate," we mean Build Upon, Branch, or Merge. Understanding that you can be in a group of people who are in the same room at that same time may not mean that each of you are in the same Intellectual or Emotional Reality, despite your shared Physical Reality. The greater your Peace and Happiness, the greater your capacity to adapt to and embrace variations of Realities, however. We are using "peace" and "happiness" to describe the confidence and trust that is within an individual or group, regardless of influences or factors, and not to describe a romanticized, syrupy, or "new agey" conclusive state. In other words, the greater your capacity to embrace all of YOUR OWN DIMENSIONS, the greater your capacity to embrace others', instead of shooting yourself into another parallel, to speak in humorous terms. These Dimensions, then, can be explored through other aspects of our Teaching, such as what have come to be understood as "the Nine Needs," or "The Nine Pillars," etc. Look to the health of your Body, your Heart/relationships, and your Mind/Philosophies for indications as to which Reality Set is important for your focus. ALL Realities and Dimensions are benefited by the attention given to any one Dimension that is most discordant. We will conclude here, and regardless of where and when you are in Reality, we will meet up with you again. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
Michael Speaks 051510 Open Floor [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin the queue now. [QUESTION] Hello Michael, my question is regarding Cadence mates. Could you please elaborate on that connection... How do they function with each other? How do they work together to accomplish their global job? [MEntity] We would first point out that our term "Cadence" refers to any group of 7 with a relative resonance, which means that a Cadre is a Cadence of Entities, for instance. We point this out because we know that many students use the term to refer to the smallest grouping of 7 fragments of a single Role as cast within an Entity. There are many variations on "Cadence" across a Cadre and within an Entity. We point this out not only for clarity, but to say that our response would apply to all Cadences. We use the term "Cadence" to reference not only the rhythmic flow/count of fragmentation from Tao in 7/8 time, but as a musical reference to the culmination and "conclusion" of that flow into what are Cadres. We will also clarify that while we are aware of the terminology, we are not familiar with what is designated as "global jobs" beyond what might be a part of a Configuration of Agreements across a Cadence, which might be global in scope; otherwise, there are no inherent "global jobs." The relationship among Cadence members would be akin to positively-romanticized sibling relationships. Although the entire spectrum of human relationships can be had between Cadence Members, there does tend to be a kinship that is "softer" even in the worst of circumstances, relatively speaking. Those cast in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Positions tend to gravitate toward each other, as do 2nd, 4th, and 6th positions. The 7th position tends to be in a more "aloof" position, so to speak, and often becomes a focal point for other members of the Cadence. For instance, it is not uncommon for the Entities 1 through 6 to generate Personalities who feel they are "in love with" 7th Entity members and the various Personalities that are generated by the Essences of that Entity across lifetimes. The same can be said of a Cadence of Roles within an Entity. This dynamic of focus and support might best be understood if one were to visualize a pyramid with the 7th Position being at the "top" so that all of the energy and focus, gravitationally-speaking, is distributed among the other Positions for that 7th Position. This is not a literal description, but one that helps you to see that inherent dynamic of that Configuration. [QUESTION] Would it be appropriate to say that each of the 7 positions, in conjunction with each other, allow for a more complete understanding and exploration of the various lenses that a Role in essence can perceive, itself? [MEntity] We would agree. We would also agree to that description on the larger scales, as well. For instance, a Cadence of Entities (Cadre) in the Love (first) Position of its Energy Ring (12 Cadres) would collectively bring perspective, experience, and comprehension to that subject for the Energy Ring. [QUESTION] is there a more specific name to indicate we're talking about the smallest group? [MEntity] The Cadence of Roles (which could be called a scale of Notes) would collectively contribute to the whole of that Role's experience, perception, and comprehension within the context of its Greater Cadence (group of 49; 7X7). Greater Cadence might also be called a Chord. Cadence members spend more lifetimes together than any other grouping, and that number of lifetimes is greater on the smallest scale of a Cadence than on the greater scale of Cadence. For example, the Cadence of Roles in an Entity spend the most lives together, and then the Cadence of Raw Numbers. The Cadence of Raw Numbers could be called Octaves that include the Traveling Companions and Essence Twin. All of the Cadence variations could be considered as various "Melodies" within a Cadre. [QUESTION] what is the difference between the cadence of roles and the one of raw numbers? I thought that was one and the same? what is the distinction? [MEntity] A Cadence of Roles would be akin to the Notes on a scale from C to A, whereas a Cadence of Raw Number are like the 7 C Notes in 7 Octaves, or the 7 D Notes, etc. [QUESTION] does that make an entity or cadre a Song? [MEntity] A Cadre could be considered a Song. On the scale that becomes the Design or the Harmonies, the "words" that would be required by definition for a Song are no longer as relevant. On the larger scale, we would describe the grouping in terms of orchestral terms. [QUESTION] I'm going to get less esoteric for a bit. it strikes me that the US is more divided politically/emotionally than I have seen in my lifetime (even the 60's). There seems to be very little being done about real problems. How much does this really matter to individual personalities? What is a helpful point of view on this? [MEntity] The clearest metaphor we can find for describing where your country (and world) is currently would be at the crest atop the first hill of a roller coaster. "Half" of the people would be feeling the momentum forward, while "half" would still be hanging behind the hill, feeling the pull, but not seeing where it is going. The "half" in the front have a clarity that those "in the back" would not have, despite the fact that "everyone" knows they are on a roller coaster. Those "in the back" would have a bit more anxiety and resistance, in real world terms, as the gravity of evolution pulls them forward. We remind you that this "pull" and evolution are not imposed, as it is a choice to get on the "roller coaster" in the first place. We would also add that many "in the front" of the evolution are "egging on" those "in the back" to some degree for fun. "WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE!!" is similar to what even some "in the front" are calling out, but on higher levels of perception, we see this as the "brattier" of the Essences who get a kick out of generating drama for the younger souls. Many of the same fragments acting as alarmists fully "know better," but enjoy the drama and humor. It is easier to enjoy such things when there is a higher perception of events and probabilities. In the same way that many Essences will "pull up their lawn chairs" around the section of the Astral Plane allotted to "hell" just for the amusement of watching the younger souls who think they must burn in "hell," so do some fragments carry over that sense of humor into the Physical Plane to play on the younger souls' fears of evolution. The division you sense is valid, but temporary. Now that the Infinite Soul manifestation is less-likely to intervene, the more "obnoxious" of fragments on both ends of the spectrum of evolution will be more obvious, and this "obnoxiousness" does not preclude the possibility of being harmful. [QUESTION] What is "temporary" in this context? [MEntity] For the most part, we see the majority of probabilities "teetering" toward various angles of dramatic destruction, but no fragments are truly interested in going there. Once the planet has moved into a Mature Soul gravity of evolution, even the Infant and Baby among the population begin a sensitivity that recognizes PAIN as a common denominator among everyone. One of the first steps toward unity is the capacity to recognize suffering in another, and even the Oldest of Souls had trouble doing so before the shift into a Mature Soul Paradigm. Once that gravity begins, then compassion becomes a priority over competition (Young vs Mature). [QUESTION] Do you have any ballpark time-frame when things will start to calm down? [MEntity] Those who might still want to harm others as a means to alter or resist evolution may do so, but we have not found any probability where this happens on any scale that has impact. Most Baby and Young Souls are "more bark than bite" in general at this time, but this does not mean there will not be those who represent the extremes. In most probabilities relative to where and when you are asking this question, the full forward momentum that then takes everyone with it onto an evolutionary roll, so to speak, is in approximately 2 years. [QUESTION] It is well known that events on the Physical Plane are linear in time, yet it has been mentioned several times that events on the Astral Planes and above are non-linear, as well as a future on this physical plane parallel in which technology may allow there to be instances of non-linear time. Could you please explain in further detail this concept of non-linear time, and how it works around the concepts we know of as special and general relativity, particularly temporal causality? [MEntity] The concept of non-linear time is best understood in vertical terms rather than horizontal terms, if you will. Linear progression happens "all the way" up and returning to Tao. Linearity is not lost, it is simply not the only perspective. The past is still the past, and the future is still the future, and the present is still the present. However, to help one imagine the concept that is often referred to as non-linear time, we would refer to the imagery of a 365 Day Wall Calendar. Within the Physical Plane, "you" exist within one of the boxes representing the Day. You progress from box to box, day to day, and there is very limited perception of the entirety of the year in front or in back of your point of reference. [QUESTION] so would it be correct to say that as you move up vertically, you see more and more on how actions in the present affect the future, but future events cannot affect the past, so to speak? [MEntity] From the Astral Plane, time is still quite linear in experience, except that it could be said that you have the equivalent of a clear view of the Month, rather than the limitation of the Day. From the Causal Plane, the view is more like being able to see the entirety of the wall calendar for the Year. [QUESTION] so you observe the events simultaneously, rather than individually? [MEntity] Yes, the comprehension, experience, and perception of events is not linear, even though the progression of events are. This is why we use the differentiation between horizontal and vertical: it is merely a matter of perspective that allows for the experience of non-linear aspects. [QUESTION] Wouldn't that interfere with choice though, if an action is seen to create an undesired outcome? [MEntity] No, it would not interfere with choice, but enhance it. Even within your single box, or your single day, you learn from experience how to anticipate the outcome of a choice before it is acted upon. Your capacity to anticipate within a day could be likened to our capacity to see probabilities on the metaphorical scale of the year. To be clearer in our response, we would have to include one more dimension of consideration with our visual. In "reality" there is never one calendar on that wall, but a multitude of calendars superimposed one over the other, over the other. The progression that one makes throughout the "year" would "weave" among those calendar layers, if you will. Each calendar layer representing a probability from the moment. Your choices determine what layer of calendar you are living. For instance, your choice to lash out in defense against an offense vs generating a creative, peaceful solution might be the difference between one layer and another layer of the year's calendar day. [QUESTION] Is this how parallels are constantly splitting off, based on the infinite number of choices that can be made? [MEntity] Yes. Our analogy of the Calendar Layers would be the equivalent of Parallels, or Dimensions. This is why when one might ask about a past life at one point in the current life, there may be a list of pasts that are linearly linked to the current life's moment, but at another point in the life, that moment may have a very different set of linear links to the past, because it is resonant to a different layer of the calendar now. [QUESTION] Though we do not see it on the physical plane, is it possible for us to jump around on different levels based on our choices, or new choices, or are we "stuck" on the same calendar? [MEntity] Shifting Parallels (calendars) happens on a regular basis, and happens on different scales from the Personal to the Global. Personal shifts in parallels can be generated through the accumulation of DECISIONS that then lead to pivotal CHOICES. We differentiate Decision from Choice. A Decision could be akin to HOW one takes the next step, and CHOICE is WHERE one takes the next step. Most Decisions create a path, and that path leads to a Choice. And that Choice can lead to generating a new parallel, or merging with another parallel. We will conclude this response with the clarification that the concept that "everything happens at once" should not be taken as a literal concept, but rather as a description of the capacity to comprehend on larger scales. For instance, when we said that all Roles within an Entity are "cast at once," we did not mean this literaly, but more in the same way that one might say that in the course of a day of baking, the chocolate chip cookies were all baked at once, and the ginger snaps were baked at once, etc. Even on the scale of Tao there is order, and that order has a progression, regardless of how massive the scale of comprehension. Time is simply a means for creating "space" within denser dimensions to allow for comprehension of progression. [QUESTION] You said cadence members spend the most lifetimes together. Is there an average number or percentage range of lifetimes that you spend with your primary cadence and raw # cadence mates? I’ve only asked for shared lifetime counts on a few people, trying to get a sense of how all that fits into things. [MEntity] We would say that Cadence Members spend more than 70% of lifetimes together in some meaningful capacity, in general. That 70% would include those lifetimes where at least one of the fragments is incarnated, but another is acting as non-physical guide or support. [QUESTION] At one of these open forums a while back Michaels mentioned that no one in attendance then had much support in their lives. What exactly is this phenomenon; support that is? What does it look like? Where are we placed with it and without it and what's it mean i.e., its significance? [MEntity] Every fragment has support in its life or it would die, but many do not consciously recognize the support, or do not consciously allow the support. Support could be said to be the network of life forces that are required for any Sentient to manifest in form. Support is active on the smallest of scales, such as within an individual lifetime, but are also vital on larger scales, as in terms of Universes; Universes are organized in groups of 12, and each plays a position of support for the others. The support of which we speak at the moment is the support that exists, with or without your Personality's permission or acceptance. It is dynamic and energetic, yet tangible. For instance, someone had to raise you. Someone had to heal you at certain points. Someone had to teach you. Someone has inspired you. Someone has fed you. The amount of support one has within the life is phenomenal when truly comprehended in terms of what it has contributed to your being here, now. The degree to which one allows, seeks, or invites support is often proportional to the degree of awareness and consciousness. Support occurs on an Intimate Level, Inspirational Level, Comrade or Classmates Level, and a Guiding or Guides Level. We have elaborated upon this in other exchanges regarding the subject of the Support Circle of 12 for every fragment. We will ask Troy to include that article in the final transcript for your further study and application. Note: See Support Circle of 12. A search for 'support circle' is advised as well, since there have been multiple transcripts that reference the concept. [QUESTION] I've just started recognizing the differences in intensity and extremes between different soul ages and different internal monadal experiences as an effect on how Chief Features display. Is this true for all of the various overleaves -- i.e., even frequencies and energies? As a general rule, is the slide between negative and positive poles less dramatic with age and experience? [MEntity] Your observation is valid. What you describe is the spectrum of perspectives, experiences, and comprehensions that range between the poles. As the soul grows older, it moves from a more reactionary bounce between the poles, into a response-oriented pendulum swing between the poles, and then into what might be best visualized as an arc between the poles. This arcing is what could be said to be the "Third Perspective." The older soul still has access to the range between the poles, but from a third perspective, or a perspective that is more "outside" of the self, from a higher elevation, an arc. This allows for a non-attachment to the experiences, comprehensions, and perspectives, while still participating in them. The evolution through the use of the spectrum between the poles of overleaves then could be described as a progression from attachment to detachment to non-attachment, or reactionary to responsive to True Choice, or from bouncing to swinging to arcing. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
