    This Made Me Crack Up

    The most hilarious thing on the internet today. A 26 year old journalist in the UK creates a swanky, appointment-only restaurant. In seven months, it becomes the #1 restaurant on TripAdvisor with rave reviews. The catch? It doesn't exist. Presenting: The Shed at Dulwich, an Old Soul Sagey social experiment that is just the kind of naughtiness I like in this world.
  2. [Extracted from: Michael Speaks: November 2005 ] [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively MEntity: Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar. The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality. This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible. In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him. The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.” Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak. The walls that isolate the Scholar are in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.” Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories. For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas. How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed.
  3. Michael Speaks: THE ULTIMATE HICCUP or Truly Accepting Death 2017-10-01 Channeled by Troy Tolley in a live session at TLEGG 2017 Note from Janet: Hopefully readers of this transcript will be able to sense the general hilarity that participants experienced within this live session. Once Michael was past the introduction to the session, we were laughing most of the way through, and you'll see [laughter] repeatedly throughout the transcript. Troy kept listening in while in trance, and at times Michael had trouble getting info through his laughter. Please send thanks to @DanielaS for her transcription of this live session. MEntity: Bear with us as we come through, and hello to everybody. Surprisingly, we are not asked very often to discuss the topic of Death. Part of the reason for this is because you are specifically designed to avoid Death. You are in a physical body that wants to live, wants to survive, wants to experience the Physical Plane in its form as a representative and extension of you, as a Consciousness. And so, the topic of Death is avoided by most at all cost, even if this is unconsciously avoided. So, to bring up the topic to discuss can be difficult for some, especially those who may have had close calls with Death or experienced the Death of a loved one or has any sense of empathy or compassion for those who are in events that caused their Deaths, especially on a large scale. So, the sensitivity to Death is an important mechanism in your life, and in your body, that helps you navigate Life. Another reason you tend to avoid questions about Death and the topic of Death, with us at least, is because surprisingly, again, it is one of the least significant events in your life. That is not to say that it is not significant, but it is of the least significant. A part of you, in particular as Old Souls, knows this and is not interested in discussing the end of your life or the end of another life but you are more interested in Life itself. Each of you has died so many times that the Essence of who you are gets it. The body will never get it. Once it dies, it dies, and it does not comprehend that, and it is designed not to comprehend that. So, you will avoid the topic. You will avoid the experience if you can and if you will. This is an example of the dance between what we have described as the Sacred and the Profane. The physical dense body in which you as Essence exist through is a part of you that you must honor on a regular basis in order to continue with your days. While at the same time, having a perspective that is natural to you, especially as Old Souls, that GETS IT, that many of the things you struggle with in your life are temporary and insignificant and irrelevant to the greater arc of your existence. That dance is a very interesting and amazing friction that perpetuates a Life, the dance between the Sacred and the Profane. So, what we will do today with you is have more of a discussion with you about how you feel about Death, your questions about Death, your concerns about Death, your fears about Death, anything that you would like to discuss about this experience. But we suggest you do this while holding both the Sacred and the Profane in the same space. And by this we mean that you honor the truth, the necessity to avoid this topic while honoring the necessity for you to remember the beauty of this topic. One way to approach this is to tap into the more morbid humor that is natural to the Old Soul, and approach Death as a comical event that occurs more than it is a tragic event. Because Death is the ultimate tragedy and comedy, and there is a very fine line between the two. And you as a meeting ground between the Sacred and the Profane have the capacity to shift between these two perspectives, the tragedy side and the comedy side. It would be of interest to us to see where our students can find the comedy in the Deaths that have been experienced in the life, or the Deaths that you have experienced in the past, or the Deaths that you fear may be coming for you. So, our first question to you would be, in particular for those who have experienced the Death of someone in your life: do you or can you find the comedy in this, the levity, the relief, the peace, the paradox, the humor, in this experience? Asking you this question lets us understand where you are in your capacity to shift between perspectives. Because you will always see both of these perspectives, the tragedy and the comedy, but most of you are imprinted to emphasize the tragedy. Because in most cases it would be unnerving if you approached a funeral with a party hat and streamers and offered stand-up. It would be awkward. But that is not because it IS awkward. It is because of the climate that is imprinted within you around Death. There is levity in Death. In fact, we find it quite hilarious in many cases. Not because of the suffering that is involved, but because of our witnessing your reunions after the life is over and the realization that you have not ended. You have not in any way ended. That realization is not only beautiful to us, but hilarious. So, we ask our students here today, have you or can you describe, even if it means stretching yourself, the levity, the humor, the beauty on the other side of tragedy for a Death that you have experienced? We are looking for examples. Martha: So, a dear friend and “ex” of mine committed suicide a few years ago. There was a month delay between the time he died and when his funeral was held. And his family had a lot to deal with so I basically planned a lot of it for them, and they wanted me to speak. And, so, I spent about a week writing. It was going to be a sad eulogy, right, I was writing all the little stories and vignettes, and I was practicing to try to get the right tone. And when it actually came to be the day of the funeral I stood up there and took a completely different tone and picked things and I did stand up, sort of. I told funny stories about him. Like, how he never cleaned his oven. You know, because I cleaned his house before we sold it for him and the oven was pristine. And so, I did stand-up. His brother, who had been sitting next to me before I got to speak after the funeral, said, I just thought that was going to be so rough but when you got up there and started speaking I knew it was all going to be OK. MEntity: That is the kind of beauty that is attached to the yin and yang of Death, so to speak. It is the other side of tragedy, and that is a good example. Ann: I got a few. I got a lot of dead people. I know this sounds terrible. My brother died of pancreatic cancer this last December. Here is somebody, this is going to sound so awful, but here's somebody who did so much for the environment, committed himself to this clean life. And he dies of this fucking pancreatic cancer. I know that sounds mean, but it's like, Oh my god. The irony still amazes me that he took such good care of himself and was such a steward of the planet and he gets laid low by this rampant, nasty disease. And I don't know how he feels about it, but there's a part of me, like, Oh my god, the irony still kills me. You know, it's just.... And also, the way my mother, my mother went out her way. She did it her way. And it was so much a part of who she was. It was sort of a really interesting honor to watch her in Discrimination slowly make her decision to work her way out of here, you know, through her choices. BobbyA: I'm thinking specifically about a man by the name of Jason that I asked you about. He experienced a disruption at a club one night, and he and his female partner went home. And I think the police were called, and in an effort to avoid the police, there was a warrant out for his arrest, he went and sat out by the train tracks. And he was drunk. And instead of getting hit by the law, he got hit by the train. MEntity: That is hilarious. [Laughter] Brian: I'll add one. Geraldine is a great example. She knew that it was coming. We went to Seattle. For most of us to meet her for the first time. But at the same time, when we were doing the planning, one of the jokes was like, hey, let's have a pre-mortem eulogy. And so, it was basically making fun of all the nonsense. And I remember some channeling that Maureen and Bobby had done later on to find out, OK, what kind of happened on the other side. And apparently, she was very pissed that her first sighting of Essence was of her sitting in the wheelchair from Seattle. And she's like, what, that's it? And so, yeah, to me it was very beautiful to be able to see that. Obviously as Old Souls we kind of know, yes, it goes on, but to truly see that in action, and be able to see someone embracing Death, not just accepting it but even embracing it and having fun with it. And then even on the other side, that's it, I'm disappointed! I thought there was going to be more! So, that was a really good example for me. Janet: After my parents' deaths, we didn't have funerals, we had memorial services. They were full of pictures and stories, especially the funny stories that we had on my parents. But I wanted to bring up that those Deaths we knew were coming with some advance notice. They were in a state of health and it was the time. We had some way to make some preparation. In Martha's case, that was totally unexpected. And so, I think there is a difference in how you might approach it and how you might be able to handle it based on whether you have advance warning or not. MEntity: Yes, the tragic will be involved. Regardless of the humor you can find in it. But it is important, the reason why we are discussing it from this angle is because it's important, as you come across those who will die or you approach your own Death, whether suddenly or known, you must remember to access the comedy, the humor, because this is how you allow the individual to continue on without an attachment or an anchor to the life that has been ended, so to speak. The more one grieves, which is a natural process, but the more one grieves in a way that resists the humor, or the levity, or the understanding, the more you have anchored an individual to the life in a way that does have an effect on their Review. And we have discussed this in our delineation of the 7th Internal Monad, which we will not do here, as we have covered that in detail. But the levity is not just for you to feel better about the Death, but about freeing up the energy that is another Essence and its Personality to continue forward. It does have an impact on the Review. Are there other examples? Tex: This is sort of an example and a question. My dad, who was age 96 when he died two years ago, had had multiple strokes at that time. I'd been in the hospital with him. And he's kind of an easy-going guy, never worries about anything. And I think that's why he didn't die until age 96. He would wake up from a stroke or whatever and just look around like it was totally amusing. Finally, he has a heart attack. He's out for several days, and he finally comes to and he looks around the room and goes, I'm not dead yet! [Laughter] And then two years later, bang, he dies. [Laughter] I can just see him on the other side going, I'm not dead yet! [Laughter] So the question is, did he actually do that on the other side when he died? I'm not dead yet! MEntity: We do not know. [Laughter] We would have to look. We wish to differentiate between your bringing levity to the experience of Death and the attention that is necessary for processing the suffering of an individual that may lead to a Death, whether this be through sickness or mental illness or the overwhelming circumstances of a life that drives an individual to reduce choices to the point of leaving the life, exiting the life. So, we are in no way implying or saying that one must diminish the appropriate response to the suffering of an individual. But the Death itself and the experience of this can be, at some point when you are ready, brought to a state of wholeness by finding the comedy to go along with the tragedy. And knowing this is part of the process of understanding and bringing peace to your experience of Death, a peace that is often missed or not pointed out in most instructions for how to grieve. Eventually you must find the humor. Do you have questions before we continue? Daniela: I get it. I imagine that when I die I'll have a smile on my face. It will be funny. But my children. I just can't see humor [Laughs] in a child's Death. It just seems, like, different. MEntity: That is because it is not funny, at this point, and it is not something that you need to [Troy laughs] ponder as a hilarious event to occur. [Laughter] The point is if that were to happen, then it is important to find the humor in this. You do not practice that understanding on anticipating the Deaths of those who are close to you. You practice this on those experiences that have already occurred. And that is important to understand so that you are not whimsically laughing at the possibility of a loved one's Death. But if a loved one has died, there will be a point where the humor may be necessary, and will likely be necessary, to bring to the equation. You can practice on yourself, as you say, as you gave as an example, and that if fair game. But you do not have to practice on your children. [Laughter] Daniela: But what's the humor in a child's Death? To me it just seems different than an adult's. MEntity: That would be something that individually you must find. It is not that the Death is humorous in itself. But that you will find the humor that is included in the reality of that Death, and much like Martha gave as an example, it is finding those memories that bring back the humor to the equation, not necessarily in extracting it from the Death itself. Do you understand? Daniela: Yes. MEntity: Those memories that elicit laughter and humor are vital to your peace around the Death of a loved one. One of the reasons for this is because, as you mature emotionally, you move away from Sentimentality, which is an attachment to a rigid way of remembering things or wanting things not to change, and move toward Nostalgia. This is an emotionally intelligent way of looking back at the past. Nostalgia extracts from all of the spectrum of experiences those things that bring the greatest movement forward, that add to your life in ways that are joyful and humorous. So, that is one of the reasons why looking for humor and levity and memories of laughter is a way of moving into a more emotionally intelligent way of moving forward with the past, instead of staying rooted in the past with Sentimentality. Cyprus: I have a question. Is Death kind of an overall statement? I mean, even not just talking about Death. But I love nostalgia and remembering the stuff that we've done in the past. Even things that were crazy and seemed horrible at the time, we now laugh at and joke about and enjoy in a different light. MEntity: Yes. This can be used in a broad way for the life. And it is one of the ways that you grow. Many of the things that you are doing in this life that bring suffering are things you will look back on and laugh about in the future, because you already do that now in your questions about past lives. What you [Troy laughs] have not quite grasped, and we understand why, is that you are already dead. [Laughter] Your future lives are asking about you, and the irony is that [Troy laughs] nothing dies. [Laughter] So, while you are already dead and not yet dead and will never die, the concept of Death must be addressed. In terms of the Personality, or rather the physical body, Death is quite profound. But in terms of the Essence and Personality, it is simply transformation, it is simply evolution. It is not an end. It is not Death in the way that most tend to treat it. There is a persistence and continuation that each of you know is true. You do not have to trust us in telling you this. There is a part of you that knows this. But your body is not designed to remember this. It is not designed to know this. So, you will always have that struggle within you. Nostalgia can help you to understand that if you can do this for your life and for those who have died in your life, it helps you to understand the beauty of your life in retrospect after Death. And we ask you now, if you were to die today, can you find the Beauty and the Nostalgia, would you leave this life today knowing this was a life lived as best you could, and by “best you could” we mean by your standards, with your skills, at your pace, and not measured against some ambition or deadline set by a false premise. Various responses: No. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. MEntity: We promise there will not be Kool-Aid. [Laughter] If you would like to, we can offer up the floor to get questions or to respond to questions about your individual Deaths, some of which you may find quite hilarious. If you— [Laughter] Cyprus: The room goes crazy. Martha: Everybody wants that, Michael. MEntity: We will start with five. We will leave it up to those who are moderating to manage this. Cyprus: We'll just take a nice smattering, OK? We'll start with Cong. Cong: Can Michael just give me an example of my funniest Death in the past? MEntity: For each of these responses we may require a moment to find. [After a moment of silence, Troy starts to laugh.] [Laughter] The [Troy laughs]—this is Troy laughing, not us—the lifetime that came up for us is a lifetime in which you were, we think, in the late 1700's. We may not provide all of the details so that we can get to more people, but you were very eager to get married and your dress got, in the frantic effort to get to a location in time to get married, because you thought you would die if you did not, because it was quite important to you and exciting, your dress got hooked into the wheel of the vehicle and you were pulled [Troy laughs] under [Laughter] and broke your neck [Laughter] and did not make it to the wedding. [Laughter] Cong: Just out of curiosity, did you know who I was supposed to marry? And did they find this funny? MEntity: At the time, no. [Laughter] The Mate Agreement at the time is not here, in this room. Cyprus: Martha. You haven't been here in a long time. You deserve to go. Martha: So, you did tell me about the funny Death of Geraldine and I where we were soldiers that laughed and got caught because we were laughing and got killed. So, that one I know already. MEntity: That was quite a good one. [Laughter] We've [Troy laughs] found one in what looks like the late 1500's where you thought you could get by with defecating under a stage by slipping through a trap door, [Laughter] not knowing [Troy laughs]—we are having trouble keeping Troy from listening—the place burned down. [Laughter] We suggest that each of you who receive these notes make a note so that we can elaborate upon these and put them properly in the sequence of lives that you may be exploring in more formal settings. Martha: Did I cause the fire? MEntity: No. Next. Cyprus: Ann. MEntity: We will look. We are looking. This may not be as funny as the others, but we find it funny. The lifetime where you were running a type of apothecary store and thought you could make some good money switching out a remedy for a poison because someone was going to pay you well. And fell ill, feeling guilty, not realizing that you had given them a remedy and took the poison [Laughter] to feel better and killed yourself. [Laughter] Cyprus: Kerrin. MEntity: [Troy laughs] We think this will count. [Laughter] We are losing the capacity to relay details. But we can share the gist. It appears you had puffed up yourself in such a way as to take on the challenge of jousting knowing that you had never done it before. [Laughter] And in your attempts, you beheaded the one you were challenging, but were so freaked out by the impaling that you catapulted yourself off your horse and into some sort of impact that caused you to die. [Laughter] Everyone was quite confused. [Laughter] Kerrin: Was there anyone here whose head I cut off? MEntity: No. Cyprus: Tex. Tex: OK, I invented so many things in this life that nearly killed me, from motorcycles to jumping off a roof with umbrellas, you name it. I have got to make an invention out there that killed me. MEntity: A few. [Laughter] One example that you thought would be helpful for a rough terrain were stilts with springs. [Laughter] That did not go well. [Laughter] Cyprus: Are you OK to do more? MEntity: We can take two more. Cyprus: Brian. MEntity: We are looking. This would have been in what might be described as the “Wild West” of America, and you had decided to take some journey by horse on your own, and someone convinced you to dress in the garb of the Native Americans as a form of disguise, which did not work. [Laughter] You were immediately seen as an offense and murdered. And what was funny was your yelling, “But my headdress.” [Laughter] We know we cannot prove this, but we are not making these up. [Laughter] We will take one more. Cyprus: We haven't had an Artisan. We'll do Janet. I’m trying to get the other Roles. See if they are more entertaining. MEntity: They are all entertaining. [Laughter] The one that comes up right now for us to most easily convey is an expedition of some sort, that took a lot of convincing to pull off for a group to trust in your navigational skills and knowledge to lead to what we can only describe as some sort of Mayan vault that required a large stone to roll out of the way. After so much journey to get there and in your excitement, the door rolled back [Laughter], and you did not survive that. [Laughter] Cyprus: At least she got them there! MEntity: That is exactly what you said. [Laughter] Janet: I said, “I got you there?” MEntity: That is on record. [Laughter] These are examples of how you will look at this life. You will look back and find the humor, even in your greatest struggles, because all of you will remain together. All of you will remain reuniting, one after another in your lifetimes, and finding each other again. It does not end. We have not seen an end. And we have all reunited as an Entity and laugh at our [Troy laughs] past on a regular basis, though we do not have the bodies to do so such as Troy is experiencing now. But there is still laughter in the Causal Plane. As the Old Soul learns rather quickly, some of the most amazing and beautiful and touching moments are in the most tragic. And this is something that you can keep in mind, even if it is an undercurrent in your struggles, is that you will find the beauty in that. You do not have to find it in the moment. Because you must figure out whatever it is that you must figure out. But you can find it in those moments. You can find it in your struggle. You can find it in the suffering. There will be a moment when you understand it differently. And that is all that matters in terms of getting peace around difficult experiences is understanding it differently. It does not mean that you will understand it completely, but you will understand it differently. And it is often more meaningful, useful, touching, than you might have guessed while in it. And that is what we will leave you with in terms of your understanding Death, approaching Death, and looking back at it. Cyprus: Before you go, could you just tell us one of your funniest ones? MEntity: One of our own? Cyprus: Yes. MEntity: We have a few to choose from. [Laughter] One of our favorites was when a large part of our Entity were incarnated together as a crew on a ship. And we thought it would be a good idea to have some ladies join us [Laughter] and we all died from syphilis. [Laughter] But we had a good time. [Laughter] Cyprus: Thank you. MEntity: Good day to each of you and good-bye.
  4. December 12, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks (Online) – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand that this group will be “open floor”, so we will begin taking questions in the sequence we see that has been organized. [H2OSprtlvr] Now that the elections have somewhat calmed down, can you tell us if we are any closer to a change in the political arena, as in finding the problems with the voting process? [Michael_Entity] The problems with the voting system have already been found and have been known for quite some time. The issue is not in finding the problems, but in implementing changes to alleviate those problems. Unfortunately, the “problems” are actually to the benefit of many specific groups and the exploitation of those “problems” is “no problem” to them. We would say that the alleviation of those problems with the voting process is closer to being overhauled than ever before because those who are affected are now more acutely aware of the issues. Children born in the 1960’s through the 1980’s who were raised within a paradigm of “individuality and questioning authority” are now in positions wherein their questioning is taken seriously and not dismissed as rebellious. This refusal to submit to an authority without question is being refined and positively implemented in most cases. We say “positively” as meaning having consideration for the impact of that questioning on the general public. To simply rebel or to demand answers is not effective. There must be refinement and clear sanity in this effort to make such a drastic change to a rooted method of voting. After the recent Nexus, we have seen the effect of the questioning taking a surprisingly quiet turn, with any accusations and announcements being carefully examined and validated before launching. As we have said before, but will say again, we do not see your current process of voting to be in place much longer, though “much longer” to us is within 50 years. [Tibtyc] Good evening. This is Tibtyc (I think). Michael, do you have humour where you live? Do you laugh a lot, and how? Is humour and/or laughter something universal, or merely terrestrial? Some say Jesus never laughed. Does the Tao laugh, and can we join in the laughter? [Michael_Entity] Yes, we have a sense of humor, though from your perspective it may be quite “dry” or even startling. The known universe (as it exists as part of what we refer to as “TAO”) is built from three primary building blocks that can be described as TRUTH, LOVE, and ENERGY. While Physical, there are biological reactions to the pure experiences of any one of those building blocks. Tears are the biological reaction to Truth; Pleasure is the biological reaction to Love; and Laughter is the biological reaction to Energy (which can be translated as Oneness or Beauty). That which brings you laughter is that which implies a momentary, profound resonance. Some of you may believe that some laughter or humor is cruel, but that is not the case when it is genuine, even if you do not agree with the reasons or “tastes” of someone's humor. For instance, there are many non-physical entities who find the afterlife of many fragments to be quite humorous, particularly those who have constructed a “Hell”, but this is not a cruel humor. Humor is entirely based on Paradox, which finds its Resolution in Resonance. When some Entities see a fragment flailing in Hell, it is humorous because it is of the fragment's own making and this self-punishment does not have to be endured, which is the Paradox. The Resolution comes in the slow realization of the fragment that it is not necessary. The Resonance comes in the fact that “we have all been there.” We find many fragments methods of death to be particularly humorous, specifically those of the Expression Axis. We do not have bodies with which to laugh as you would recognize it, but we do “laugh.” [flimflamdamn] er, such as? (Sorry for the interruption but I just have to ask here!) [upstaate] really, such as? [Michael_Entity] One of your more humorous deaths, Leela, was approximately 4000 years ago while living as a brooding hunter who eschewed contact with people as a means to commune with and consume “nature.” [flimflamdamn] don’t tell me, I communed with a poisonous snake, or a bad mushroom. [Michael_Entity] You died on the horns of a buck after several days entangled there. [flimflamdamn] yeesh; ha ha [upstaate] ewe [kittlekats41] well, you did ask. . . [Michael_Entity] We admitted that our humor could be startling. [flimflamdamn] it's funny too [flimflamdamn] makes me wonder what the buck did! Anyway…. [Tibtyc] But can not humour be paradox-free? Just Recognition… [Michael_Entity] We do not know of genuine humor that is paradox-free. There is always an element of surprise, even with recognition, resolution, and resonance. And finally, if one considers that everything is an extension of Tao, then yes, Tao does experience laughter/humor. We will add that many of you can experience a most profound humor if you stop for one single moment and see the higher perspective of your life, including the drama, pain, and challenges. Sometimes a fragment who is extant can “get” the humor of his or her life and appreciate the absurdity of some of the events. If you can see the humor of your life, you are closer to Home than ever. [BradburySE] On “60 Minutes” a couple weeks ago, I saw a story about a 12-year old composing genius. His name is Jay Greenburg, I think, he’s been composing classical music since he was two. This says to me that someone who was not finished being a composer when he/she died came back as this boy and got right to work! Who was this boy before he was Jay Greenburg, and was he a known musical composer? [Michael_Entity] Many fragments who are deemed “child prodigies” are, indeed, completing a Cluster of lives focused on some creative theme, though this is not always the case. The fragment now known as Jay Greenberg is the current Personality of an Essence who is one of many Essences whose compositions were credited to other composers across history. The fragment in question helped create (or specifically created) compositions with or for the fragment who has come to be known as “Mozart.” This was not uncommon. This still remains a common method of publicizing creations, particularly in the field of music. As part of the theme of that fragment’s Cluster of lifetimes, we see that he is now focused on immediate recognition for his work, rather than humbly developing the submissive devotion to his art. [BradburySE] And being a “child” prodigy brings so much attention that would not be given to an adult, that his work could not possibly be credited to anyone but himself. [Michael_Entity] Precisely. [kittlekats41] How do devic energies and elementals fit into the overall physical scheme of things? Will they choose to become an ensouled species at some time or are they an evolutionary end unto themselves? [Michael_Entity] Devic Energies and “elementals” are placeholders of energy for consciousness to explore specific levels of interaction with a particular planet and its life-force. In its early stages, a planet is teeming with energies that act as caretakers and even creators/designers for life forms within the various kingdoms of life on that planet. More clearly stated: there are levels of caretaking that non-sentient consciousness can utilize as a means to explore the various kingdoms of life on a planet. Once the average soul age of a planet reaches Mature, these placeholders for caretaking begin to fall away. As the potential for choosing a sentient species falls away, so do the caretaking positions of a planet. The caretaking positions for the various kingdoms must then be fulfilled by the current sentient species. This means that as the planet has “taken care of” your species, there comes a point where your species must then “take care of” the planet. All levels of exploration of a planet are a potential end-point of interest to a consciousness, so the Devic kingdoms may be an evolutionary “end” for some. The entity known as Lazaris falls into this category. The continuing potential to sustain sentience within the species of the Gorilla appears to be the only avenue for “new souls” to explore beyond the Devic realms of your planet at this point. There is simply “no more room” for souls who are younger than Mature to truly experience the soul ages of growth. As it stands, the Gorillas will have a tremendously accelerated and condensed process of evolution as they follow in the vacuum created by the gap in average soul ages between species. We will also include as part of the realm of “caretaking” for your planet the realms of “gods and goddesses.” For the most part, “gods and goddesses” are merely concepts that then have various entities playing those “roles” for those who wish to utilize them. Different entities across time will play these roles as a means of teaching and learning, lending different interpretations of those gods and goddesses across time. We will add that the roles of gods and goddesses, depending on the concepts that sustain them, can be played by sentient or non-sentient consciousness. We, ourselves, found our students calling on us through the role of Apollo, or The Sun God, at the Oracles of Delphi. [upstaate] How much importance is it to have magnetic energy work to our physical beings in lieu of all the technology surrounding our environments? How much of this new technology that we have……i.e.; cell phones, power lines, microwaves, etc….affects our physical bodies and is it harming us? New Age science says that we need magnetic energy work to balance what is affecting us… “bombardment” is what they call it. [Tibtyc] I had the same question… Are they dangerous? [Michael_Entity] Is your final question about magnetic therapies or about the effects of your electronic society? [upstaate] both [Michael_Entity] We will respond to both, then. In response to the question of whether these energies are harmful to the human body, we would say that they are, though on fairly low levels and not any more harmful than the effects of your own Sun. In fact, we would say that certain rays of your Sun are more harmful than most electronic systems in which you must move. And while we do not trivialize the question, we would also say that most individual belief systems are even more harmful to the body than the Sun, diet, or Electronic influences. We include that statement merely as a means to put the term “harmful” into perspective. We have seen no validity to the use of magnets as treatments or preventions against electronic influences, but this is because the concept is limited at this point in development. The theories are flawed. The human body is highly adaptable, which is why it was chosen by your sentience. The bombardment of energy within a technological society is usually proportional to the adaptability of the body. The most detrimental aspect of your technological progress isn't found in the “waves”, but in the difficulty adapting to the glut of information that is accessible to you. The human psyche has not adapted well to the amount of information and input that is available. This is not to say that it will not adapt, but if there is an effect of detriment to the human, it is on the psyche, not the physical body. Of the energies you described earlier in your question, “microwaves” are the only energies we have seen to have an immediate and long-term effect on the physical body. The use of a microwave for cooking food appears to destroy nutritional value and suppress the Pineal Gland's function. [Tibtyc] Where does this put the Internet? [Michael_Entity] Ironically, what has come to be known as the Internet, with its immediate access to massive amounts of information, has the greatest potential for implementing the adaptation of the human psyche. This is because the Internet, as it becomes available to the average person, will eventually encourage the refinement of the individual's search for information. [upstaate] so, are we what we think or believe then, and only that? [Michael_Entity] It is more than a cliché to say that you are what you think. We would agree with that. [flimflamdamn] What are the chances for a healing of the rift between the Muslim world and the so-called “West”? I include Palestine-Israel and other parts of that region as well. The huge gulf in understanding and perception between us sometimes seems insurmountably huge. I feel like we are a tragically warring family. [Michael_Entity] The more contact the “Muslim world” has with the “West”, the more likely this rift would be healed. It is in the lack of exposure of one culture with another that divisions remain instilled. The chances are quite high that this rift would heal, then, as the world becomes “smaller”, though the process of healing may be bloody for many. The “gulf in understanding” can only truly be healed and bridged through education and reincarnation cycles. There are a multitude of probable futures for your planet from this point where all fragments lose interest in war within 100 years. Once the concepts of privacy, territory, and competition are redefined, your world will find the peace you now conceive as only probable. The most immediate implementation of Peace would be in the form of a massively devastating impact to life on Earth, while the more tedious, seemingly excruciating path would take approximately 100 years. But Peace is not impossible and it will happen. [flimflamdamn] hmm, I guess I'd prefer door #2 then – slow and painful! [flimflamdamn] I try to educate in my small way, but often feel so overwhelmed by the craziness on all sides. [Michael_Entity] Begin with healing your own rifts in perceptions and you greatly contribute to the process. It is not only in educating OTHERS that you may bring Peace, but in educating you, and living as an example. [flimflamdamn] what do you mean by “devastating impact to life on Earth? [Michael_Entity] We would include nuclear holocaust, meteor impact, and alien invasion under that phrase. [flimflamdamn] jeez [faldec] How likely would each be? flimflamdamn: yeah really [Michael_Entity] All are possible, but far less probable than most long-term implementations. The reason for the lack of interest in the “devastating” directions is because your world has already experienced those levels of devastation on large community and national levels. It has proven quite ineffective. They are “last resorts”, so to speak. We state these low probabilities as we see them, not as a means to offer false comfort. It may be of interest to you that most of what would be the devastating probabilities are played out on a mass level through the medium of film. This allows the secret intrigue to be experienced without the actual interruption of life as you know it. We will conclude here. Good night to each of you.
