[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Soul Age Levels] [GeraldineB] As Sage-casted Sage in the 4th Old Soul Level, I can't distinguish which plays a bigger role in my near obsession with truth. In fact, I can see this as a problem with all Old Sages. How do Sages validate being Old Soul vs other Soul Ages? MEntity: Sages tend to always be focused on some exploration and play with the "truth," but it is in the Old Soul Age that INTEGRITY and truth become synonymous. Another way to put this is that honesty becomes priority. By the time one is an Old Soul, or an Old Sage, the spectrum of definition for "the truth" is well-known and understood, so it becomes far more important to the Sage that there is integrity and honesty in one's truth, whatever that truth may be. This sense of honesty and integrity becomes extremely nuanced and sensitive to the Old Sage. More accurate meaning can often be found between the words and behaviors of others than the Sage often cares to deal with, but it grows like a "sixth sense." ... That is one way for how the Old Sage can validate his Old Soulness: the sense of priority for Integrity and Honesty. [GeraldineB] When that is all one has, it's all one knows. So, it's not really a validation MEntity: To match that internal validation, it can also be of help to observe or be open to the feedback from others about one's own integrity and honesty. These may tend to be prominent areas of discussion, challenges, or sensitivity from others for the Sage, as well. For many Old Sages, this is a familiar area of defense because others may bring it up about the Sage, as well, in some way.
[Excerpt from a private session for AnnaD on February 27, 2015] AnnaD: [receives information that someone is a Warrior and protests that he appears to be a Sage] MEntity: There are complexities about individuals that go beyond the superficialities that are often attributed to the stereotypes for the Roles. For example, a Warrior is just as likely to be a "showpony, stage-grabbing" individual as any other Role. It is not about the behavior that determines the Role, but the ESSENCE. As Sages grow older, they move away from the obvious stage and life begins to be the stage, if you will. For other Roles, particularly those that have long been shy of exposure and attention, will seek to balance this through various means, including using humor, play, and even obnoxiousness. By this time, the Sage tends to be long done with these as defining features, and have integrated them as expansive tools. ... We do not seek to override your own understanding of the Roles. ... We do, however, remind you that there are Overleaves at work here, as well, and imprinting from social influences, etc. There are consistencies to the Roles, but they are not through the cloning and replication of behaviors. If only Sages were funny, and Priests preachy, and Servers serving, and Kings leading, the universe would be a rather monotonous experience with little room for evolution, exploration, and experimentation. ### Note: You may comment on this material within the original post.
