March 7, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Racism [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand the topic tonight to be “Racism.” We can begin by stating that we believe Racism, as it is understood, is simply a subcategory of a larger categorical rejection of, abuse of, neglect of, or dismissal of a particular group. We believe Racism is included along with Sexism, Species-ism, and other minor “-isms” within the larger context of “Classism.” Classism exists across the board, so to speak, and is included even within the sub-groups who claim to be victims of any particular “-ism.” To understand Racism, one must first understand Classism. Classism is not particular to any Soul Age as it might be guessed to be of Young Soul origin. It is not. Classism exists even within the gentler Old Soul communities, as well. We will define Classism as “the inherent need for identity that creates the illusion of division within social constructs.” Classism in not linked to particular Soul Ages because it is actually linked to particular Overleaves, which can be used in any lifetime by any Soul Age or Essence. Classism tends to be rooted in the interesting dynamic within a society as it is defined by the predominant Centering. In nearly all cases, the Classism moves in this direction: Intellect over Emotional over Moving. Inherent within Races, there ARE certain genetic inclinations that make that particular Race more potentially Moving, Intellectual, or Emotional in Centering. Naturally, the darker the pigmentation of skin, the more inclined that Race is toward Moving. The lack of pigmentation tends an inclination toward Intellect. This is NOT a rule, but an INCLINATION. We do not say, nor do we mean to imply, that there is a rule to define Centering based on skin color. In nearly all cases of Slavery and Racism within your history, the basis has almost entirely been based in differing Centers. When Centers are the same, the Classism moves to division based next on the PART. So, even within a society of intellectually centered Caucasians, the Emotional PARTs will usually take dominance over the Moving PARTs. This seemingly “natural” hierarchy is NOT VALID, of course, but is based in the vague longing toward “perfection.” Inherent in all fragments is that “longing”, however vague or clear. This longing is from the sense of separation and the apparent struggle to rise beyond that that seems to epitomize that separation: the Physical Plane. The Physical Plane is the most “separated” you will EVER be from anything; even internally there is the greatest rift you will ever experience as the division between “you” and Essence. If there could ever be an “original sin” identified, we believe it would be more accurate to identify the unconscious misinterpretation of the Physical Plane as a trap that must be risen above. By extension, this misinterpretation has manifested in many divisive ways. ALL “-isms” are a means to gain that illusory rise above what is most symbolic of what has trapped you here. If you examine your films, literature, history, you will find that most forms of SERIOUS praise and awards are given to those of intellectual stature. Frivolous forms of praise and awards are given to the more emotional categories of entertainment, charity, and the more moving centered sports. As we said that Classism is not exclusive to any Soul Age, we CAN say that the Mature Soul Age does the greatest work in alleviating as much of this as is possible within a Sentient Species. As can be seen in your world today, more and more methods of honoring all forms of Centering are coming forth and being taken far more seriously. With all of this being said, we must make it clear that Classism IS NOT a result of Centering, but a result of Fear, or Chief Feature. This fear is simply justified through the tool of Centering. The Exalted Chief Features will almost always be the dominant oppressor over the Ordinal Chief Features, many times despite the Centering. We will continue now with your questions for us. Otherwise, this is a strong foundation for beginning to understand the dynamics behind divisions within Class, Race, Gender, etc. QUESTIONS? [sam-nemo] What is the origin of races? How did they begin? I read a story in the Urantia book. [M_Entity] The origins of races is a grand topic, but we can say that we agree that the species eventually used by what is our Sentience began approximately 8 million years ago in what is now known as East Africa. [sam-nemo] To shorten the topic, did they pop up at one time or were they affected by genetic manipulation or alien experiments? [M_Entity] The varying Races had their development in part due to nomadic movement across lands, but more due to the genetic splicing effects when our Sentience moved to this planet. To respond to your question “in short,” we believe the “genetic manipulation” had more to do with varying Races than anything. Approximately 6 million years ago, the most dramatic divisions began. This was based on the genetic splicing and the care that the “aliens” had in creating the most effective and practical genetic bodies for the varying locations seeded. [MaryBV] How much of racism is based on bad past life experiences with or as part of a culture/people? [M_Entity] We would have to say that ANTI-racism is more indicative of past life experiences with or as part of a culture/people. Racism in its truest form is based in LACK of experiences. [Val] Please expand on the word “trapped” in your explanation and Exalted chief features, what is your meaning is? [M_Entity] We meant the word “trapped” literally, as in a confining and unchosen/unwanted condition of which there is great difficulty in escaping. The Exalted Chief Features are Greed, Arrogance, and Impatience. Because “you” exist primarily as “spirit,” the confines of the Physical Plane from the very beginning are quite uncomfortable and the challenges inherent to the Physical Plane are quite a shock to Essence. This affects the lifetimes in ways that are conscious and unconscious, leading nearly all extant to seek a vague sense of “somewhere else,” or “home,” be that in another person, a career, another location, or even another life, etc. This seeking eventually finds a balance and turns into “spirituality,” and eventually, as well, you realize you have never actually left “home.” [JNelson] Why would genetics predispose certain people towards certain overleaves? [M_Entity] Overleaves ARE genetic. Personality, while affected by environment, education, conditioning, is primarily based in genetics, in the same way a Body is. There is, literally, a gene that predisposes a Personality toward Intellect, as there is also a gene that predisposes a Personality toward Moving. We remind you that we say PREDISPOSES. This is overridden or flowed with as the life unfolds and choices and reactions are experienced. The Personality, even as it is defined by our system, is a biological description. In some parallels where genetic identification and manipulation is more accurate and acceptable, Personalities can be altered or at least identified and described quite early in a child’s life. This can and will be abused, of course, but as its more practical uses are found in some parallels it is a form of healing and/or preparation for a child’s life. [JNelson] So do fragments incarnate into specific bodies simply because they’re programmed with the desired overleaves already or would the fragment reprogram the overleaves itself upon incarnation? [M_Entity] The Overleaves are chosen first, as the Soul ages, and then the closest parental genetic pool is chosen to create the body. In early incarnations, predominate Essence dynamics usually determines the body a Soul uses, based on an already-defined Personality developing. For instance, a female body is 100% Female Energy (or Creative Energy) when a Soul is not using it. An Essence with predominantly Creative Energy in its ratio will be inclined to have female bodies in their earlier lives. Later, the Essence will more consciously choose against this as a means to learn balance and other various lessons. Eventually, the Energy Ratio can be used effectively regardless of the body’s gender. Infant Souls do not discriminate their choices of bodies as they would simply rather be born as soon as possible to escape the discomfort of being dead. Eventually, as the lessons of survival teach, they learn to choose and create more and more consciously. As the Soul learns, the creation of a lifetime and a body becomes an art form. If there are no more questions, we will say good night.
Channelled by: Troy Tolley Date: January 12, 2017 Date: February 15, 2017 Excerpt from two separate private sessions, as linked above. ----------------------------------------------- MICHAEL It is vital for any surviving Sentient Species to, eventually, return to the organic structure that is inherent in any planetary dynamic of consciousness. There is a living structure of which you are a part and when you remove yourself from that structure, it is the equivalent of a blocked artery in a body, or a "closed" Chakra, or slow amputation of a limb, with Humans being the limb. There is a period of growth in a Sentient Species where it is "natural" to distance from that, which has always nurtured the species, much the way a teenager must distance herself from caretakers to learn her strengths and weaknesses and then return with greater understanding of the self. The Young Soul phase of evolution is the most distant Humans will ever be from that dynamic structure of life. During that phase, there are vital turning points that lead to either the collapse/extinction of the species and a necessary Karmically-loaded relocation to bodies that can help heal and avoid this from happening again, or the species rapidly accelerates in its return to the dynamic structure of life and takes a new stewardship role in its Maturity. What you describe is true: that your species need not learn any language or skills in communication with non-humans beyond the communication already established and working, but is ignored. There is no need for psychic bonding, affectionate exchanges, domestication, no need to even understand other creatures, beyond what they establish as their own design for living. Kinship is not necessary, but recognition of self-defined personhood is vital. All other levels of communication that might come, would be built from the acceptance of the premise that other species can already clearly and definitively communicate pain and pleasure at the very least, and suffering and joy from the more complex species. Your Essence, along with many of our students, are working privately or publicly in getting to that place in this lifetime or the next lifetime. Many of our students are contributing to a wave of education, inspiration, and practical application of what we describe as Affinity, which is the only term that can describe what "saves" a Sentient Species from the weight of their own distancing from the Life Structure. You are not just fragments of a living structure that is made of souls, but are bodies existing within a construct that is part of a planetary consciousness, and this must be understood for the species to survive. AFFINITY is a higher function and one that is accessible to nearly everyone, though it is rarely nurtured beyond the first tier. The First Tier is that of immediate recognition of SIMILARITY. There is little thinking involved. There is knowing. Nearly every Personality can see Similarity between himself or herself and nearly any other creature on the planet. The Second Tier is that of CURIOSITY. This is yet another Tier that is quite common among Humans in their Affinity for non-Human animals. Curiosity is the desire to learn more about that which is so similar, but different. The Third Tier is that of KINDREDNESS. This is when the Similarity and Curiosity come together in a way that recognizes Kindredness. This is the Tier when one no longer consciously or subconsciously differentiates value and worth based in species You can see these Tiers of Affinity at work among Humans who are eager to relate to animals and sees the deep similarities that clearly indicate feeling, thought, existence on their own terms, but that recognition is usually locked only to those species deemed socially acceptable to value. SIMILARITY is seen everywhere as marketing, children’s books and television, etc. are utilizing animals for teaching, relating, selling, humour, etc. CURIOSITY is seen everywhere as animal documentaries and animal companions, and even in the misguided visits to zoos and films with animal "actors." And KINDREDNESS is when you cross the line from defining oneself as merely a separate species, but as an Earthling with multitudes of animal brothers and sisters. As Affinity is a higher function, it is always available, but relatively few have moved Affinity into Kindredness. Because of fairly definite impending food shortages due to climate change and an inability to sustain farming in the current form, many of you are laying the groundwork and creating the network of support for when familiar foods begin to reduce in availability. This dramatic shift is likely within the next 20 years. That is why we mention that the current life is directly involved and can feel the urgency. If enough people cannot be moved into the more sustainable realm of consuming, then it may take a lifetime or two to recover. This is not a prediction or a doomsday scenario, but is a practical concern based on current patterns that have yet to be diverted toward more sustainable and pleasant paths.
November 4, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We realize that there is a great deal of dismay following your most recent United States of America election for 2004 presidency. This is to be expected when observing the surface of the events, but when the emotional and intellectual reactions clear, there will be more clarity and certainty than presently anticipated. Currently the United States is predominantly Mature Soul as an average soul age, but Young Soul perceptions are the predominant perception, even among the majority of Mature Souls. It is a confusing time for the United States as it transits from the Young Soul values and perception and into the Mature Soul values and perceptions. Most of the Mature Souls in the United States are 1st Level to 3rd Level Mature and this does not make for strong stances for Mature Soul values. With approximately 90 million Young Souls and 100 million 1st through 3rd-Level Mature Souls dominating your country, it could be said that nearly 200 million fragments are contributing to the paradigm of the Young Soul. This number is more than the number of counted voters in your most recent election, from what we can determine at this point. If every Old Soul and every 4th Level Mature to 7th Level Mature Soul were to have contributed to the vote, that number would only be approximately 40.5 million fragments. If you factor in the Baby Soul population, the older fragments with the higher perspectives are vastly outnumbered. We share these “statistics” with you as a means to put into perspective how the United States is growing, progressing, and maturing in its own natural way. We have stated before, but will state again, that one of the catalysts for final implementation of Mature Soul values and perspective is THROUGH the medium of Young Soul events. It is naturally, the “only way”. From our perspective, it is important to note that more Mature Souls voted in this election than did Young Souls. But with the inclination to support familiar Young Soul values, it could be said that nearly half of the counted votes were collected from “young souls”. The impact of electing the current president will most likely be the final catalyst for the implementation of a Mature Soul paradigm. The Mature Souls who voted for the current president of the United States are eager for something dramatic to change the paradigm to which that country subscribes. From the Personality level the votes were cast as a means to uphold the familiar, but on an Essence Level, the votes were cast as the most potentially-combustible and permanent path of change available in your time. The contrast between “now” and the time of what would be your next election may be quite striking and, in the end, quite beneficial. We will open the floor to your questions now. [Questioner] also aren’t many of the “older” souls still children, and not of voting age? [Michael_Entity] Of the 40+ million fragments we would refer to as “older souls”, it is valid that approximately 25 million of these fragments are under the legal voting age. [Questioner] What can you see happening in the next 4 years that would be beneficial? In other words, can you be more specific? [Michael_Entity] We do not (and cannot) predict, but we can see the probabilities that appear to be more or less likely to manifest. The term “beneficial” is subjective, but we will use it in the context of events contributing to the stability of Mature Soul perception. In that context, there are two major events of high probability that will contribute to that change: 1. the assassination or dramatic unseating of your current president; and 2. the revelation and factual reveal that both elections of the current president of the United States were a result of conspiracy We do not wish to “add fire” to the concept of “conspiracy”, but part of your dismay and intuitive repulsion to the recent election is not rooted simply in disappointment. Your inner perception of this event will more than likely be vindicated within the next 4 years. The “benefit” then of this election will most likely be the complete overhaul of an outdated voting and political system. When your voting system and methods have been changed and implemented, you will then know you live in a Mature Soul world. [Questioner] Can Michael suggest ways that we can stay in positive poles and avoid getting caught up in Maya and our Chief Features (fears) on an individual level during this difficult time? [Michael_Entity] If you wish to stay in the positive poles of your overleaves, we suggest considering this time frame as no different from any other time frame in your life. It is not the first time you have been disappointed, betrayed, or appalled. That is simply a part of life and this time is no more difficult than any other. Most of the “difficulty” that is being experienced at this time by older fragments is an exaggerated emotional extrapolation from the speculation or expectations of the resulted events, but not from the reality of the events. In other words, where the early Mature Souls are living through outdated Young Soul perspectives, the older souls are living through outdated Mature Soul perceptions, tending to over-dramatize events as a means of alleviating boredom and rediscovering purpose. Therefore, within the context of this specific disappointment and dismay (the election), and the resulting drama that may begin to unfold from this, we suggest a conscious examination of your specific Soul Age. We suggest gently examining your True Soul Age and implementing your own paradigm in ways that you are capable of living. It could easily be said that if the older fragments do not implement their own soul age, it does nothing to help the evolution of perspective among other fragments. In other words, “be yourself”. Find ways to BE more fully who you are. If you are confused about what it means to “be yourself”, this phrase always means being who you WANT to be at that moment. There is no way you CANNOT “be yourself”, but being conscious of the process and expression can help navigate you through your personal world more peacefully and with more fulfillment. [Questioner] Regarding the emphasis placed on “moral values” among voters, and the alarming growth of Christian fundamentalism since the 1990s (which is equally repugnant to liberal Christians like myself, and non-Christians), this [moral value] seems to have a broader appeal than just among Baby souls looking for religious structure: is that true, and what would be the reasons for it among other soul ages? [Michael_Entity] There are several reasons that may apply here: One is that most organized religions are not “spiritual”, but more a means of competition, territorialism, division, and gain. Christianity marked the full implementation of the Young Soul age on your planet, so it is not surprising that Christianity is the primary religion of a Young Soul country. “Christian Moral Values” is simply a Young Soul means of justifying the methods of protecting the comforts of gained territory, wealth, security, etc. Another reason for the appeal among various soul ages is that it is simply the popular religion of the United States. Along with iPods and AOL, most fragments in a Young Soul paradigm find the most popular to be the most appealing, regardless of the quality, resonance, or practicality. All soul ages are susceptible to that appeal when living in the Young Soul paradigm. And finally, of course, there are legitimate levels of spirituality found by any soul age in any distorted religions of your time frame. All religions were initiated or built upon a legitimate spiritual tenet. SIDE NOTE: It may be of interest to you to note that Religion is a Young Soul construct using the ingredients of Baby Soul myths. It is many times thought that Religion is a Baby Soul construct, but that has never been the case. Religion is highly appealing to Baby Souls, but it is the Young Souls who manage that business. We have yet to see a more powerfully marketed, unquestioningly-purchased, and ultimately pointless product on your planet. This is not to say that value is not ultimately extracted from the experience, but we have seen more detours in personal and global evolution due to the freely-accepted oppression of religion than from any other context in your history. [Questioner] Will fundamentalism continue to grow, or will there be greater tolerance for things like gay marriage? [Michael_Entity] Religion, Politics, and Commercialism will continue to collapse and rebuild itself in a way that accounts for diversity, not conformity. That is the key difference between where your world is moving and from where it is coming. It is already happening without being truly noticed, but it is happening. The implementation of hundreds of television channels, for instance, is a Mature Soul paradigm. The “death” of subsidized radio and a restricted music industry is another. The internet is yet another. When diversity becomes the foundation of Politics, Spirituality, and marketing, you are in a Mature Soul paradigm. In more specific response to your question: There is an irony in the current election result and the revival of religious fundamentalism: many Mature Soul personalities may soon, suddenly, discover that they simply do not fit into the very world they sought to sustain. Consider a teenager who has taken great steps to rebel against the obvious future of his responsibility as an adult; so, too has the Mature Soul rebelled within the comfortable paradigm of the Young Soul. But as with the teenager, the Mature Soul will simply find it exhausting to maintain a paradigm from which it is inherently alien and eventually embrace its growth. [Questioner] Is the Diebold company part of the conspiracy? [Michael_Entity] Of course it is. [Questioner] sequoia? [Michael_Entity] Of course it is. We do not wish to convey that all parties involved within those services are part of “a conspiracy”, but there are a handful of fragments with an agenda that is as obvious to us as it is to you. There is an 89% probability of this fraudulence being validated publicly, though actions taken as a result of this may be less-obvious until much later. We will conclude with the next question. [Questioner] The fraudulence of which you speak: Is this part of the so-called 10-year program designed to hypnotize people to vote against their own best interest? [Michael_Entity] No. We know of no such program in which “hypnotism” is involved. The fraudulence of which we speak is simple misrepresentation. If all votes were counted accurately, you would not have your current president. We will conclude with a statement: It is important that you consider choosing for your emphasis to be on the greater patterns of your planet’s evolution in Soul Age. While it may be exciting to speculate wildly about the dramatic possibilities, it is also as exciting to consider the beauty and innocence that IS your fellow sentience. As the Mature Souls must eventually let go of their Young Soul paradigm, so does the older soul have to eventually let go of the Mature Soul paradigm (at least, internally). Consider that there is an irony in your distaste and repulsion at this time: it is a clue to your next (and possibly last) step toward Agape. How do you love the unlovable? How do you love those who hate? How do you perceive innocence in the midst of violence? How do you extract possibilities in the midst of restriction? This current event is not just about your planet’s evolution through an average soul age, but about your own Soul Age that is under self-scrutiny at this time. Can you love? Can you rediscover trust in a way that includes the soul of another beyond his False Personality? We do not ask these questions as a means to convey “new age” clichés, but as a valid response to many of your feelings at this time. Beauty is defined by us as “the recognition of patterns”. Chaos is “the lack of recognition of patterns.” You live in an intelligent universe within an intelligent design that allows for both Beauty and Chaos, both of which are simply a matter of perspective. The Older Soul is capable of acknowledging Chaos, while perceiving Beauty. Regardless of any physical, emotional, or intellectual circumstance, the choice will always be yours. We will conclude here. Good night to all of you. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Based on our recent chat with Michael, I thought it was interesting to explore further the numbers Michael shared. United States’ population is approximately 303,000,000 (according to Michael). Soul Age Demographics: 17,450,000 Old (about 6%) 123,000,000 Mature (about 41%) 90,000,000 Young (about 30%) 67,850,000 Baby (about 22%) 5,000,000 Infant (about 1%) Total Counted Votes Soul Age Demographic Breakdown: – 15,000,000 Mature/Old (older souls) 13% of the votes – 45,000,000 Early Mature 39% of the votes – 30,000,000 Young 26% of the votes – 25,000,000 Baby 22% of the votes An extremely minor number of Infant Souls voted. This accounts for about 38-39% of the population of the United States. 51% of the votes for Bush = 40,500,000 Mature (about 99% Early Mature) 9,000,000 Young (about 99% Early Young) 10,000,000 Baby (about 99% Early Baby) 48% of the votes for Kerry = 15,000,000 Late Mature/Old (older souls) 4,500,000 Early Mature 21,000,000 Young (about 1% Early Young) 15,000,000 Baby (about .5% Early Baby) Michael explained to me while I looked at these numbers that far more late-level Baby and Young Souls (in this case, 5th level to 7th level) voted democratically than did early Mature. They explained that this is because those in the latter levels of a Soul Age are more likely to intuitively anticipate the most useful future environment for their growth, but the earlier levels of a Soul Age are more inclined toward what has become familiar and comfortable. So it looks like the votes were affected not by Soul Age, but by Soul Age LEVELS! I had never considered that before! Michael went on to explain that they believe over 2,000,000 votes were discarded, uncounted, or rendered unacceptable and that over half of those were for invalid reasons and in “key states.”
