  1. Note from Janet: This topic was originally posted by Geraldine on September 29, 2014. I have elected to post it under the same forum section that Geraldine chose. Note from Geraldine: I had my Team POF session today, and, while I didn't have anything personal that seemed pressing, I did want to continue with some of my "Timeline Project" work, too. Warfare and Warriors isn't exactly that, but it does fill in a couple of blanks as it opens up some new Questions. GeraldineB: I'd like more context for the constant warfare that I've been aware of that goes back to recorded history and that has become progressively more genocidal -- just kill the others rather than conquer. I'm grappling with the concept of Warriors and warfare. In cultures that do not have organized warfare, i.e., standing armies, what role does the "role of Warrior" play? I would like a brief overview of the expansion of warfare in human history. Expansion from inter-tribal conflicts or refugee movements due to crop failures or climate changes, etc., to outright "empire-building," such as was exhibited by Alexander "the Great." (i do realize that session is not long enough for a full elaborate discussion, but should give some groundwork for future Qs.) MEntity: First, our choice of the term "Warrior" was chosen from how we learned the term, rather than how the term has come to be fractured. Much like "Slave," the "Warrior" is often mistaken for its cultural and historic stereotype, which is a fraction of the range that is the Role. This is true of all of the Roles, of course, to some extent. Warrior, in our system, refers to those who, at their core, can rally for a cause, bring energy to a direction, encourage loyalty and compassion, invoke courage as a platform for change, etc. All of this can be used in war, but that is not the goal of the Warrior. It just happens that war requires this same kind of energy and loyalty to a cause. So in a culture where there is no war or standing armies, there are always causes, loyalties, need for protection, encouragement of courage, strength, anchoring, grounding, etc, that are needed and provided. GeraldineB: thank you for the clarification MEntity: Warriors, ironically, are often of the most passive and peaceful of Roles, but will burst forth without question or concern if there is necessity for protection, loyalty to an accepted cause, or defense of an underdog. In earlier Soul Ages, the Warrior is much easier to provoke in this regard, and therefore has come to be synonymous with fighting and warring, but it is the Priests who often exploited this in the Warriors. Most wars are are generated by the invocations of Priests. GeraldineB: ISIS . . .shit, I hadn't thought of that MEntity: In earlier Soul Ages, the Priest Roles are regarded as rather superior in access to vision and long-term causes, so the younger Soul Ages will leave the instruction up to the Priests to give. This is one of the reasons there is an inherent distrust between many Warriors and Priests as the Mature Soul Age comes around for them, and these Roles will often keep each other at a distance. Though that distance is kept in place as often as possible, the Karma generated between these Roles compels them to find one another and burn the Ribbons. Warfare has really not expanded much over the course of history. It fluctuates in its horrors, but it is still the same in terms of conflict. All of this warfare is based on the fulfillment of the Nine Needs. In most cases when there is war, there is a Need being fulfilled to some early degree. This is a learning process for Humans, and we realize the process is slow. In most cases, the more obvious of the warfare includes the lower ends of POWER, EXPANSION, and SECURITY, but war is by no means limited to these Needs. Other Needs help to exacerbate the scenarios, such as the lower ends of Expression as a means of propaganda, for example. If you look at the first 3 degrees of each of the Nine Needs, you will find the clue to all wars. Only when the Needs find a way to be fulfilled from the 4th degree or higher does war begin to fade. We think this would have to be our most succinct response in light of the current format of exchange. GeraldineB: thank you -- the "reasons" were other than I expected also, I can better visualize Warriors in some of the Grand Cycles where war didn't seem to be an issue MEntity: We can address those expectations in further exchanges. Your expectations should not be discounted. Sharing them may bring more expanded and in depth understanding. GeraldineB: I'm not discounting them -- just always trying to find the "truth" that underlies seemingly incredibly counterproductive behavior Do Priests also earn ribbons for the wars they incite but may not participate in? MEntity: Many actions are counterproductive relative to the intention, but they are always productive relative to the learning. Yes, they do. Not necessarily to all individuals involved, but to those with whom they have the closer bonds that were exploited. There are many instances of "collective Karma" in that a fragment who was the source of inspiration for great waves of Ribbons to be generated will then find a way to balance this through great waves of benefit. For example, Steve Jobs was balancing a collective Karma for a lifetime when his position of creativity only served to invent greater forms of torture. This lifetime was a means of helping to balance his life during the Inquisition. These Ribbons behave differently, but similarly, and they are as compelling. We must conclude here for today. GeraldineB: Interesting :) -- Not exactly philanthropic, such as doctors w/o borders . . .but, still of great benefit MEntity: The balance here was in uniting people through technology, rather than dividing them through technology, as was the case in the past. The irony here is that inherent in his creativity is still the suspicion that this technology still acts as a means of dividing. But it is a start to the balancing of those Ribbons. "He" will be back to do more. GeraldineB: LOL -- there will always be Luddites

    PRIESTS - Loving and Being Loved

    [Excerpted from: OMW: Loving and Being Loved] MEntity: Before we go into the dynamics of the Personality and how Loving and Being Loved works within each Lifetime, we will point out the general themes for each Role and how that pursuit of Loving and Being Loved shows up over lifetimes. Every Role has its blind spot to love, and when that blind spot finds light, that Role usually experiences a profound exposure to Love. … PRIESTS, more than any other Role, tend to require being SURPRISED by Love as a means to bring light to their blind spot. Priests will often note that they are Loved, and even feel that Love, because, like all Roles, there is a default kind of Love that shows up in various ways. The Servers' is Nurturing, while the Priests' is Altruism. That Altruism is a faceless kind of Love, so the blind spot is the focusing of Love on a face, so to speak. There is nothing more profound, in terms of Love, to a Priest than to suddenly realize he or she IS Loved. By someone specific, or for a specific reason, or quality. Priests rather presume they are Loved, in general, but when that is given a face or a form, it sheds light in their blind spot. SERVERS - need Proof - defaults to Nurturing Love PRIESTS - need Surprises/Faces - defaults to Altruistic Love Both of these factors of need are extensions of the correlating Chief Negative Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance, which are about Being Seen Too Closely, and Not Being Seen Close Enough. Self-deprecation is about Not Being Seen Close Enough, or Being Invisible, etc, hence the necessity for Proof that you can see that fragment. Arrogance is about being Seen Too Closely, being Too Vulnerable, but if you can expose yourself, show your face, it can help the Priest to overcome that obstacle.
  3. This material originated with the March 2010 Michael Speaks. Special thanks to BrianW for posting his copy of the session or the content would have been lost. Although this session suggests that the missing content will be added, this has not yet been done. The roles covered in this session are those that were represented by session attendees. MEntity: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a discussion on the topic requested. Before doing so, we would like to point out that while it may seem to be the case, it is actually impossible to misrepresent, misunderstand, or misapply our teaching. When we say "impossible," we speak in relative terms that describe the fact of so many nuances and dynamics that go into representation, understanding, and applying our teaching. Our teaching cannot be misrepresented because it is either represented, or it is not. Beyond that, it cannot be misrepresented because if the student is not discerning and questioning beyond the representation, then he or she is not learning anyway. Our teaching cannot be misunderstood because this implies that there is a standard method and means for understanding. The only time this teaching is "misunderstood" is if one standard is held up against another. You will understand this teaching as you understand it. However, we will add to that statement that your understanding is never complete, and to presume that it is would be the end of learning. Our teaching cannot be misapplied, as again, this would imply a neat standard that describes how it "should" be applied. Even when our teaching is used as a platform for justifying behaviors, or to seek a sense of specialness, it is being applied on your terms, and those are the only terms we encourage. However, we would add to that statement that your terms are never fully understood, and to presume that your terms are static is to halt growth. When we say "halt growth" and "the end of learning," we mean these as temporary conditions of the Personality, and not permanent on any meaningful level for Essence. Though Troy's introduction was not intended to provoke this clarification from us, we do think it important to distinguish our channels' opinions from our own. That being said, there is validity to the fact that there is little recorded from us through our channels about the distinctions among the Roles in how they manifest through the Soul Ages, and we can address that today. We must point out, though, that anything we describe about any aspect of our teaching will, by necessity, be "generalized," as there is simply no way to describe ALL Old Sages, for instance. Numerous factors go into the manifestation of a Personality and Essence within a lifetime. Our Teachings can best be understood in both CONTEXTUAL and HOLISTIC terms. Contextual in that each phrase, term, or polarity is distinct within a specific context, and that context is an entity in itself, so to speak. Holistic in that this is a system that works dynamically, "organically," and when understood as a system, comes to life in a way that cannot be fully understood in its parts. For instance, if one were to be described or dismissed as being only a Kidney, it would not capture the full humanity of that individual, but to understand the functioning and purpose of the Kidney is vital on its own. Furthermore, lacking comprehension of the full humanity of that individual leaves one lacking understanding in how that particular Kidney actually functions for that particular person. We say all of this to you before delving into the topic at hand because what we will describe today, for the most part, is CONTEXTUAL. Within the time limits, we will cover Mature and Old Soul contexts for each Role, but will complete the subject with Troy so that Infant, Baby, and Young are included in exploring each Role. Each of the Roles through the Soul Ages could best be understood as manifesting more and more Essence through the Personalities that are created. Essence Manifestation can and does happen within all Soul Ages, but the degrees to which that manifestation occurs does grow. What we will describe today are what those degrees might look like for the Mature and Old Roles, in both positive and negative ways. Keep in mind that regardless of your technical Soul Age, you may be manifesting younger Soul Ages at various points within the life, or for the entire lifetime. For the most part, manifestation of various soul ages is proportional to the various contexts of your life, so that if you work within a Young Soul environment, you may call upon the Young Soul aspects of your Essence, and in Intimate circles, you may call on more of your actual Soul Age. "Manifesting Soul Age" is not static, and is not a description of limitations. It is simply a description of emphasis and resource for the lifetime, a relationship, a career, project, etc. What we describe today is a Role manifesting its actual Soul Age. Because of Personality, this may show up wildly different among that Roles "in the world," so what we describe may only be obvious to you privately. The progression through the Soul Ages for the Roles could be described as a progression of emphasis from DOING to HAVING to BEING. Infant and Baby emphasize DOING. Young emphasizes HAVING. Mature emphasizes the reconciliation between HAVING and BEING. And Old emphasizes BEING. Understanding this can help lend insights into the various Soul Ages and how the Roles manifest. Now we will walk through the Roles as they might be understood in Mature and Old Soul contexts. MATURE SERVERS Mature Servers tend to find themselves struggling with the reconciliation of Having Recognition, and Being Helpful. Over the course of the Young Soul Age, it finally occurs to the Server on a profound level that it is okay to be recognized, praised, rewarded, and that a reciprocating circuit of energy is vital to sustaining Service. Service is not a one-way circuit. One cannot serve where it is not received, and one cannot continue to serve without some form of exchange of nurturing at the very least. For many lifetimes previous to the Young Soul Age, this nurturing is either neglected until it cannot be any longer, or it is found in breaks between Serving. The Young Server then tends to use that entire Age to "catch up" on self-service to the extent that it can. In the Mature Age, then, the reconciliation begins between having that necessity of exchange in nurturing, and the core Being that seeks to serve in meaningful ways. Mature Servers, then, tend to be extremely busy, pulled in many directions, internally and externally, while they struggle with issues of utter availability and ineffective over-extension. The eventual reconciliation comes when the Mature Server only offers service when it can. OLD SERVERS The Old Server now emphasizes Being, and in this case, Being Helpful. At the very core of the Server is the design to HELP. (An aside: At first, all design in the early Soul Ages is manifested as compulsion as the default design is relied upon, but eventually becomes impulsion as the capacity for conscious choice grows.) Old Servers often do not "serve" at all in the capacity that one would think of as serving. The Mature Soul is ACTIVE. The Old Soul is PASSIVE. In this case, the Old Server "passively" Helps. The Old Server then begins to use exemplification as his or her means of offering Help. The entire life, self, and Being become the manifestation of Essence in that the Old Server WILL NOT allow himself or herself to suffer. If help can be gained from that by another, then the Old Server may extend upon that, but it has learned that suffering is a useless experience and will refuse to Help at the expense of self, but will unconditionally Help those who are willing to give up suffering. That may sound conditional, but it is not. It is simply a hard lesson learned that those who suffer most often choose not to be helped in any meaningful way. We define "suffer" here as that state of intellectual and emotional overwroughtness that leaves no room for solutions. Those who suffer in that way eventually learn that they are the only ones who can transform that experience, and all other influences are merely salves or addictions. The Old Server does not cater to that endless dynamic. MATURE ARTISANS The Mature Artisan has just come from an Age where it experienced being able to create and have everything it could possibly imagine within the constraints of resources at the time. The Mature Artisan now enters into an Age that must reconcile Having What It Wants and Being Who It Needs. Previous to this Soul Age, simply wanting something was often enough to have it, because it could either be created, or it could be discovered, and most of what was wanted was tangible and all "new" to the Artisan. In the Mature Soul Age, nothing tangible is "new" anymore, and what is most wanted is often intangible. This causes a struggle for the Mature Artisan so that cravings can often show up as a distraction with "things" as a means to compensate for the intangible, or as rejection of "things" as a means to hold out for the intangible. Mature Artisans can often find themselves in desperate relationships, devastating patterns of collapse and destruction, and manipulative methods for finding ways to be special. More than any other Role, this Role, in general, struggles with the inner battle between Specialness and Uniqueness. What the Mature Artisans eventually realize is that it is THEY whom they crave, desire, and want more than anything "in the world." Therein lies the reconciliation between Having and Being for the Mature Artisan. Artisans tend to develop patterns that leave them functioning only as conduits, often feeling as if "they" are left out, or left behind. During the Mature Soul Age, it is the first time in a long time that they "come home to themselves." And recognize their vital part in the equation of their desires and wants. Until that realization has been comprehended, there will be many instances where the Mature Artisan develops symbiotic relationships that continue to enforce the loss, or blurring, of self with environment or another. OLD ARTISANS The Old Artisan is often no longer concerned with creating tangible things, but struggles to make the entire life the creation, the work of art. Everything around the Old Artisan becomes symbolic and every symbol has meaning in relation to the self. The Old Artisan, then, is often tireless in the effort to showcase the life, the Personality, and even the relationships as symbolic extensions of the Soul. They become extremely sensitive to any deviation or distraction from their own symbology, and can often find themselves bewildered, hurting, and profoundly confused by these things. They develop systems of symbology that work, but often do not realize that these are not always the same symbols or meanings that others will tend to use. Eventually the Old Artisan realizes that there are a multitude of symbols and meanings for symbols that cannot be truly standardized, and this is when the Artisan is finally free. In conclusion for the Old Artisan, if the freedom is not found through the realization of various symbolic systems, then that Artisan may find he or she begins to tunnel-vision into a closed network that only supports his or her system of symbols, and anything beyond that is either a threat, or is ignored. Due to time constraints, we will do our best to streamline the details for each of the following Roles, and Troy will "flesh it out" for the final transcript. We will address Old Warrior, Old Scholar, Old Sage, and Old Priest now. We will include the rest in the final transcript. OLD WARRIORS The Old Warrior has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING AMBITION and BEING SAFE. During the Mature Age, both of those terms become profoundly redefined so that "ambition" becomes "enthusiasm" and "safe" becomes "loved." The Old Warrior then begins to naturally generate enthusiasm over emphasis on accomplishment and ambition, and begins to persuade circles of love from the self and from others as opposed to circles of protection and safety. Protection is no longer seen in terms of defense against physical threats, but as a transformation of strengths through the capacity to love. This may go counter to what is often understood as a Warrior, but the Old Warrior is done fighting, and seeks to share what it has found to be the most bountiful resource and strength in the universe: Love. Of course, this can show up in many different ways and to several different degrees, but when the Old Warrior is manifested, it has a profound sense of safety in the world and seeks to extend that validity to others. If the Old Warrior has not comprehended that sense of safety, he or she will often show up as emphasizing warnings, concerns, preemptive strategies, and constant over-anticipation. OLD SCHOLARS The Old Scholar has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING EXPERIENCE and BEING INTIMATE. During the Mature Age, the reconciliation between Experience and Intimacy is a long, often painful, road for the Scholar. Much of what is considered necessary by the Scholar for Experience is to have as "clean" an experience as possible, which often means leaving others out of the inner world that processes these experiences. QUESTION: Could you define intimacy in the sense of your meaning? MEntity: Intimacy here is meant as any form of Resonance, from sharing common ground to sex. The key being that it is INCLUSIVE, in that what is shared is not only mutual, but experienced as mutual. More than any other Role, the Scholar struggles with issues of Intimacy, of feeling connected to others, of finding common ground, and of feeling embraced. The Old Scholar has realized that Experience and Intimacy are not mutually exclusive, but Intimacy has been put off for so long for the sake of experiments, exploration, etc., that the world of Intimacy as an Old Soul is entirely new for the most part. Because the nature of the Scholar is to observe objectively, then this search for Intimacy may often be approached from the angle of provision, in that IF it exists, then it must be something provided for the Scholar, and not something he or she must work to generate from the self. Intimacy is such an amorphous concept to the Scholar that in the Old Soul Age, it will either feign intimacy as a means to have any kind of human contact at all, often leaving it to others to sort out the details, or to nurture that intimacy, or it will finally realize that he or she IS the source of intimacy, and begin to develop this from "the inside, out." The issue for the Scholar is often that if it is not found externally, then it is not a valid Experience, and therefore is not to be trusted. Ironically, anything that is already deemed as so amorphous that it cannot be trusted when generated within will also be deemed suspicious when generated from others. Therefore, the key for the Old Scholar in his or her embrace of Being Intimate is to begin comprehending TRUST. Trust is a mix of anticipated results and past experiences. It is not blind, and therefore it can be used by the Scholar. When the Old Scholar begins to recognize his or her embrace of himself, he or she can then begin to embrace others. If the embrace of others is attempted before the embrace of self, then there will always be an equation that returns the Scholar back to the beginning. They are highly mathematical that way. Trust comes in as the gathering of experience grows to show the Scholar that he or she will not die because he or she reached out, and that one is not alone just because one might actually like oneself. In short, the validity of Being for the Scholar cannot be proven through others, but the validity of others can be proven through the embrace of Being. OLD SAGES The Old Sage has now moved through the Mature Age that helped to reconcile the struggle between HAVING FUN and BEING HONEST. Now the Old Sage begins to emphasize Being Honest, even if it means at the expense of Fun. Old Sages often begin to withdraw from the "stage" and move into tighter circles that value honesty and true communication. It is no longer appealing in any way to simply perform the life. For the first time, the Old Sage values the importance of truly being SEEN. Even if there are a myriad of personas from habit and skill, the emphasis will still be there underlying every relationship and every opportunity: PLEASE SEE ME. This starts out as a kind of panic for some Sages entering the Old Soul Age, in that their existence depends on the utter honesty and rawness of being SEEN, and this can show up in desperate attempts to be understood, clarifying themselves, over-explaining, etc. This eventually levels out to a simple state of invitation. The emphasis moves from needing to be seen exactly how the Sage sees himself or herself to an emphasis on understanding how others actually see. This comprehension frees the Old Sage from the panic and loneliness of not being seen, and moves him or her into simply BEING HONEST. Once the Sage realizes that he or she cannot control how others interpret others, then Being Honest stands as an invitation, not as a prompt. QUESTION: How much of this "role in essence" material applies to casting? MEntity: All of what we have described can be extrapolated to apply to understanding Casting and Imprinting, in terms of Roles. INTERJECTION: I've never thought of Imprinting being a co-equal on use of role descriptors MEntity: For many who live as the Role that most influenced them, it can be helpful for freeing the self by transforming the dynamic that keeps the imprinting locked in place. Imprinting will always supercede Role and Casting, as Personality has the most control and influence while Physical. We should say, Imprinting will always supercede Role, Casting, and Overleaves. INTERJECTION: So, that's why it's especially important to figure out one's parents' profiles :) MEntity: Not necessarily. What would be more important is honest self-examination to determine just how conflicted one is within himself or herself. When Imprinting is useful, there is no conflict. When Imprinting is harmful, there is often pain ranging from apathy to tremendous turmoil. Harmful Imprinting ALWAYS shows up as the reprimanding voice that undermines your efforts. ALWAYS. Harmful Imprinting ALWAYS shows up as any conclusive voice within that divides you and defeats you. Your inherent nature, when free from harmful Imprinting, is truthful, loving, and energetic. When weighed with harmful Imprinting, you become divided with a dishonest, shameful, and undermining force against that inherent nature. However, it must be understood that Imprinting is NEVER PERMANENT and can be shed at any moment. If one struggles for any length of time with that Imprinting that is harmful, then some part of the self finds some value in it. We define "harmful Imprinting" as any Imprinting that has been kept beyond the 3rd Internal Monad that does not serve the Personality and Essence in any helpful way. QUESTION: why and how is it that a personality tends to manifest more essence as it progresses through the soul ages? QUESTION: still don't understand this... QUESTION is personality designed that way by essence? MEntity: The progression of Soul Ages is our way of describing a regaining of consciousness that allows for bridging between the Essence and Personality. That regaining of consciousness is done through experience. Therefore, in early lifetimes that have less experience, then it goes that less consciousness is involved, and thus less manifestation of Essence. Even the Oldest of Souls must regain consciousness within a single lifetime, yet that regaining of consciousness is accelerated because of the sheer weight of experience previous to that lifetime. It is not that manifestation of Essence does not happen within earlier lifetimes, but that the manifestation is specific to the degree of consciousness, relative to the degree of experience. So an Infant Soul can manifest Essence fully into the lifetime, but most of that manifestation would still be within the contexts (or degrees) of Survival. When an Old Soul is born into a body, that infant body is going to drool and wail and poop itself as it focuses on surviving. To that degree, that Personality's consciousness can manifest Essence. As that body grows, so does its capacity for consciousness. In that same way, the ROLE grows for ESSENCE. The Role and Essence are two different things. Therefore, the "body" that is the Role must grow over lifetimes as a means to manifest more of its Essence.
  4. Good Morning Troy Am a new member and was a bit hesitant to write to you...but I guess seeking guidance is always welcome in this forum:) I have been learning and understanding my Michael chart and the teachings only for a few months now. My role is priest , casting 6/6/2 with the goal.of acceptance...(channeled by Dave gregg)... A lot of it deeply resonates with me..but am.struggling to truly understand how to apply acceptance in a very real life situation of accepting someone in our life whose life choices no.longer work for ones true self. While I have reached a stage of accepting he is who he is, I also accept that it no.longer serves me to have him in my life. Does one take a path of honouring our true self and remove this.person from.my life though it will hurt someone else as collateral damage? Do we go ahead with our decision to let go with the belief that in the end it is every individuals own path and if some one gets hurt for.no fault of.theirs that is also a part of their journey? and how does one take this decision if the person being hurt by the decision is a child ?

    Core Values of Priest

    [This material was originally posted by NickG as a private session transcript on May 18, 2016. Permission was granted for placement in the Study Library.] Nicholas33: Hello to you too Michael. When we had the session on manifesting essence you stated something along the lines of the role having core values as a foundation to build upon. You gave me some examples for the Sage but I was wondering if I can have the core values of the other roles as well. MEntity: Yes ... PRIESTS - Understanding, Inspiration, Meaning, Consistency, Presence, Integrity and being living examples of Self-Awareness. ... Keep in mind that these Core Values will be upheld in some way, even if they are upheld in desperate and unhealthy ways. These can be upheld in ways that serve only the self, serve only others, or serve a balance between the two. ### end of transcript ### Note: You may comment on the original post.

    Priests

    [Excerpt from Energy Report: January 2017] MEntity: Priest energy is about inspiring the masses. The Positive Pole is Compassion and the Negative Pole is Zeal. Compassion is the capacity to open one's eyes to suffering and use inspiration to transform and heal this. Zeal is the capacity to close one's eyes to suffering and use inspiration to distract from or compound that suffering.

    The Role of Priests on the Astral

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: The 7 Planes of Existence] MEntity: The 5th Level [of the Astral Plane] is one of Comprehension, and it is where your Entity members work through full disclosure. Everything that was never known, kept secret, private, personal, for any Personality is now brought forth as the entity prepares for reunion. This is a chaotic and quite emotional process. ... Question: At 5th level Astral, is the anguish experienced more by the individual fragments as they are laid "naked and exposed" to the other members of the Entity, or by the other members of the Entity as they learn all there is to know of everyone else? Are there still harsh judgments to overcome at that stage of evolution? Also, it has been said that Priests "come into their own" on the Astral. Does this usually occur at this stage, helping themselves and others through the difficult 5th level and then healing in the 6th level? MEntity: In terms of Priests, they are the fragments who run these meetings, and help to direct the healing, as they tend to have the greatest extremes of Personalities that range between manipulatively dishonest and painfully honest. Priests quite often have a theme of "knowing what is good for you," or "the highest good," and doing whatever it takes to impose that. Every Role has a part in the processes of the Higher Astral, but it is organized and directed by the Priests.

    Priests and Love

    [Excerpt from a private session for Maureen on February 18, 2016] MEntity: The less one understands something, the more it is feared. The more one understands something, the more it is distrusted. This is because that which is now understood is also that which has been exploited or abused the most. ... Priests know that Love is raw and ugly and not always what one expects it to be. Many a Priest or Server have known that to Love is not always pretty. It is not always without sting. It is often delivered through Truth, and Truth is not often wanted or is deeply feared. The Snake in the Garden of Eden was Love. It only pointed to The Truth. ### Note: You can comment on this material within the original post. See Dream of Essence and Truth, Love, Energy.

    More on the Great Lesson of the Priest

    [Excerpted from two private sessions posted by Maureen on January 24, 2012 and March 14, 2012.] MEntity: The emphasis [in the dream] appears to be conveying the validity of either choice and direction. There is something to be said for the appeal of turning over the reins of the life to a momentum that is not one's own, as this excuses one from many responsibilities and burdens of consciousness. ... In this case, "you" were the meeting ground of both the higher and lower versions of you. Your unconditional compassion ... as well as your higher vision.... That is the whole of you. In a "nutshell." This is an ancient division within that is universal to all, but painfully acute in the Priest. This is The Great Lesson of every Priest. To rise above the rational, over-analysis, and the world of ideas, and the predetermined, structured, careful picture of life that no longer challenges trust. ### Maureen: What is going on with my reaction, and another's, as well, to XXX. Why does this person irritate me so much and what can I do to resolve this – within myself? MEntity: ... this speaks to that concept of the integrity of truth that is not only important to the Priest, but to the Sage, as well, and to all Old Souls, in general. It is clear to you, and to others, that the work of XXX does not accurately represent "the truth," and is a great exercise in futility to some extent because of the lack of data. This would not trigger such a reaction if there were clear qualifications in place that describe the exercises as being just out of curiosity, and if this same fragment did not already display a lack of discernment of the truth in other areas. ... Inviting someone to your truth is not a guarantee that they will accept that invitation. And then this goes back to the Priest and her fall into her Great Lesson: that no one can be recruited into the truth, but only invited to it. The truth is often not embraced as a sudden revelation, but one that is accepted based on exposure and experience, education, and dialog, etc. ### Note: You can comment on this material within the original posts.

    Warriors and Warfare

    [Extracted from: Warriors and Warfare] GeraldineB: ... I'm grappling with the concept of Warriors and warfare. In cultures that do not have organized warfare, i.e., standing armies, what role does the "role of Warrior" play? I would like a brief overview of the expansion of warfare in human history. Expansion from inter-tribal conflicts or refugee movements due to crop failures or climate changes, etc., to outright "empire-building," such as was exhibited by Alexander "the Great." MEntity: First, our choice of the term "Warrior" was chosen from how we learned the term, rather than how the term has come to be fractured. Much like "Slave," the "Warrior" is often mistaken for its cultural and historic stereotype, which is a fraction of the range that is the Role. This is true of all of the Roles, of course, to some extent. Warrior, in our system, refers to those who, at their core, can rally for a cause, bring energy to a direction, encourage loyalty and compassion, invoke courage as a platform for change, etc. All of this can be used in war, but that is not the goal of the Warrior. It just happens that war requires this same kind of energy and loyalty to a cause. So in a culture where there is no war or standing armies, there are always causes, loyalties, need for protection, encouragement of courage, strength, anchoring, grounding, etc, that are needed and provided. GeraldineB: thank you for the clarification MEntity: Warriors, ironically, are often of the most passive and peaceful of Roles, but will burst forth without question or concern if there is necessity for protection, loyalty to an accepted cause, or defense of an underdog. In earlier Soul Ages, the Warrior is much easier to provoke in this regard, and therefore has come to be synonymous with fighting and warring, but it is the Priests who often exploited this in the Warriors. Most wars are are generated by the invocations of Priests. GeraldineB: ISIS . . .shit, I hadn't thought of that MEntity: In earlier Soul Ages, the Priest Roles are regarded as rather superior in access to vision and long-term causes, so the younger Soul Ages will leave the instruction up to the Priests to give. This is one of the reasons there is an inherent distrust between many Warriors and Priests as the Mature Soul Age comes around for them, and these Roles will often keep each other at a distance. Though that distance is kept in place as often as possible, the Karma generated between these Roles compels them to find one another and burn the Ribbons.
  11. Michael Speaks Live Chat Year in Review — 2014 December 27, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. When looking at any given period of time in terms of overleaves or patterns, one must always consider that, no matter how tightly the view, or how broad the range, those overleaves or patterns are a part of vast cycles and cannot truly be isolated. But for simplicity, we can look at a given year of time and its patterns, both in advance and in review, to help bring insight to the more immediate state of collective consciousness. Time has vast cycles that cannot truly be segregated, but this is also true of Essence in existence. The current overleaves of you are but description of a cycle of time as Essence, and that cycle of time cannot truly be separated out from any other cycle. But the fact that time cycles cannot be truly separated has no bearing on the fact that those cycles are made of cycles are made of cycles, etc. Decades are made of years are made of months are made of days are made of hours are made of minutes are made of seconds, etc. Those PARTS may add up to greater cycles, but those parts matter. Those PARTS ARE the cycles. Just like your cells ARE your body. The body would not exist without the cells, and your days, your months, your years, are cells in the bodies of time, if you will. 2014 was a particularly challenging year for many of our students and beyond our students. Priest years can tend to be that way. Everything that was or is taken for granted as a pattern, or that has been in momentum for a great period of time while in need of redirection or change, will come to the surface for awareness, redirection, change, or put in more relevant Priest terms: for orientation. In many ways, the Priest years emphasize this alteration of patterns in the most spiritual sense possible. No matter how physical, the patterns brought up are relevant to spirit. When this is done through Compassion, the year has great breakthroughs in patterns that had been blocked. Even if there is resistance or complaint, the changes are toward inclusion and built from empathy. When this is done through Zeal, the year will tend to have waves of mass deaths, illnesses, outbreaks, slaughters, and destruction of any efforts that encourage or support progress and change. This could be said of any year, but in Priest years, these events tend to stand out more. In fact, it is often not a matter of unique events happening relative to what Role the year is, but that the Role helps point out what is catching the attention of fragments at the time. In another year, the very same things that might move you in one will not phase you in another. Knowing the Overleaves for a year may not reveal to you the events of that year, but they can reveal the collective responses and meaning of events of that year. In general, events over 2014 for our students brought a lot of pain for our students. If not directly, then because of the empathy inherent in the Soul Age. Sometimes it may seem a bit "too much," and that the world is disintegrating. But what we see are growing pains, not disintegration. Much like the destructive teen who must outgrow his or her hormonal wash before thinking clearly, so does the world move through its tantrums and stomping and fighting before owning a position of maturity. The Ebola outbreak is yet another example of how the world is smaller and smaller in terms of shared space and connectivity, and this is often not as clearly exemplified than through the potential spread of deadly illnesses. This was not generated as a "lesson," but is another event that took on spiritual significance to many as it brought home the validity of mortality and potential collapse of civilization due to a single event. It has been quite some time since a "reset" of civilization, so when there are legitimate examples of possible scenarios, this plays on the deepest core of Humans' Instinctive Center because it is known that a "reset" is possible and potentially long-overdue. Isolating a part of the world, ignoring it, and presuming one is safe within the bounds of an invisible line of territory is still strong in the psyche of Humans when responding to threats such as this, but these events help to remind individuals that what is taken for granted is precarious. Like illness, the spread of ISIS is another example of the world growing smaller in terms of shared space and spirit. No longer is there a fringe group that can be kept at bay and monitored, but an ideology can spread like a virus, like Ebola, to infect in greater numbers locally, but also "jump" to weaker psyches across borders to act of their own volition, fueled by the ideology. The Internet acts as a kind of neural pathway among Humans, and it can strengthen healthy pathways or strengthen unhealthy pathways. What you "put out there" matters. This is not to say that one should only post sweet nothings, platitudes, doe-eyed kittens or "grumpy cats," but that what you "put out there" matters. This matters, not so much because of what is received or how it is received, but in how these reinforce and reflect your own neural pathways. What you "put out there" reinforces and reflects your pathways. YOUR pathways. Note how often it matters more to you to share what you wish to reinforce than it is for you to consider a challenge to that reinforcement. We point this out because it is relevant to how a year is shaped by the individual. It is not just true via the Internet, but in general. Unless you are directly touched by the major events of a year, they are concepts. You will use them to reinforce and reflect your spirit, your neural pathways, or they will challenge you. "The news," no matter how accurate or inaccurate, is fodder for reinforcing and reflecting or challenging. But we digress. We digress for the sake of pointing out that it is not just ideologies or viruses that can represent the shrinking of a planet and the threats of precariousness to civilization, but how one responds to these events in the world can be revealing in where you are in your own and your collective evolution. In terms of an Intellectual year, it matters what you THINK and EXPRESS about these things in terms of adding to the collective momentum. Because this is where you embrace or reject your part in humanity. The horrors of the world are yours. The beauty of the world is yours. The Nigerian School girls abduction, the disappearance of the Malaysian flight, the expansion of ISIS, the persistence of Ebola, the breakthroughs in US/Cuban relations, the rapid shift in marriage equality and immigration rights, as well as the Israeli conflicts with Hamas and the South Korean Ferry sinking, etc. these reflect the ZEAL or the COMPASSION that this year asked of you, if you will. These events are not happening outside of your reality. They are in your reality. If you were exposed in any way to any "news" that is happening in the world, then it was for you. However distant and conceptual the event, you would have either used it to reinforce, reflect, or challenge your ZEAL or your COMPASSION. We feel that understanding this is far more useful than dissecting these events into terminology. The more something mattered to you, the more it ties into this reflection, reinforcement, or challenge to "the priest in you." One of the reasons Sentience is slow to mature and can take 6 million years is because there is only a short range, acute circles of reflection, reinforcement and challenge to one's spirit. Once there are breakthroughs, either telepathically or technologically, allowing for access to a stream of world events that would otherwise never touch you, leaps in evolution begin. This is a fraction of a fraction of a taste of how the integration process of an Entity works on the Astral. You cannot "turn it off" there. Learning how to manage your intake of world events and your response to these is practice for how you will contribute to the exchanges to come among your Entity. Look back over the events of the year, both in terms of world events and personal events, and see which direction you went in terms of choosing ZEAL over COMPASSION/EMPATHY. Choosing Zeal would mean that you felt your spirit, ideologies, expression, and beliefs were threatened and you may have bristled up in defense with hostility or anger. Choosing Compassion would mean that when you felt your spirit, ideologies, expression, and beliefs were threatened, you remained comfortable in your center and responded as best you could with patience, information, invitation, and empathy. We suspect many of you fell into Zeal and felt quite "riled up" at points over 2014. If that is the case, it is not a failure. It is information about where you are in your evolution, and that means that you found where you remain in need of healing. For many of our students, looking into the blind spots of the life was far more important than reinforcing that which was already secure. As 2015 comes in the week ahead, many of our students will likely begin to feel the shift into the Higher Moving Centered energy that will weave through 2015. In a higher centered year, the default will often rest in the lower center, but will rise into the higher quite often. Though the calming effects of the Scholar will likely be felt alongside the Higher Moving, it is the Higher Moving that will settle in, first. If you feel the latter, it is likely a direct result of not having had many patterns in place that were your own, or that were under your control, so this "stirring up" is a "good thing." For those of you who may launch into blissful optimism, it is likely because you are coming upon the horizon line and finally being able to see a bigger picture again. It is not a sign that your work is done, but that you have some breathing room. We will open the floor now for a few questions. We can take about 3 questions. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN (3 questions) GeraldineB: During this past summer, we had a major convergence of two parallels. What are some specifics we might look for on how the integration is proceeding in both 2014 and 2015? Since there would be personal, community, and global truths emerging out of this – please look at global truths or integration indicators. Will it be part of the “bliss vs depression” scenario? MEntity: The major convergence that you speak of brought with it major polarization between "progress/inclusion" vs "entrenching/exclusion." This polarity is part of the "heart" of the continued shift toward true integration of Mature Soul ideals. If there is no entrenching and exclusion, those who are younger than Mature can "lose themselves." There are far more loving ways that this can play out, but it is playing out fearfully. For instance, there is no threat to any of the younger ideals by allowing progress. The ideals of the younger would continue to work well within their circles of experience. It is only because "the world is smaller" that many of these younger groups are lashing out as a means to sustain definition of themselves by imposing this on "the world." The bliss vs depression is more indicative of one's own integration and resolution between the divided parts within. The bliss comes from the willingness to embrace the struggles of that integration. The depression comes from the distraction of it existing in the first place. In general, the collective truths that must be accepted is that the world includes ALL of you, not some of you. ViP: Hi Michael, I would have expected Fukushima to be one of those global scale events that would have come into focus in 2014, but it didn't, compared to the others that you listed. Is that because Fukushima and its fallout are not as much of a problem as it previously seemed, or it just hasn't become obvious enough yet and hence missed the spotlight in 2014? MEntity: Fukushima's emphasis is likely to come to full scale awareness of any greater impact over 2015, in the Higher Moving-Centered year. In the Intellectually-Centered year, the emphasis tended more toward ideologies, expression, mystery, etc. over environment. In Higher Moving Centered years, "the Earth" and environment tend to come far more acutely into focus. Much has been done to deflect concerns, but 2015 will likely help to point out that there is no way to hide these concerns any further. Kurtis: I was wondering if you could give us a baseline of how the Scholar might operate in its poles (Knowledge and Theory) for this year. Like a "system" of sorts to gauge our progress? MEntity: A Scholar year tends to have a high emphasis on EXPERIENCE as the medium for collective evolution. This means that events tend not to seem so distant and conceptual, but often "hit home" in both figurative and literal terms. In Scholar years, it is difficult to hide from experiences, but for those who try, it will likely be behind a wall of Theory. A Scholar in Knowledge uses the past as a means to understand and expand into the present and future. A Scholar in Theory uses the past as a way to escape or deflect the present and the future. So if one finds he or she is deflecting, ignoring, resisting experiential navigation of the year, resorting to only what is already known, familiar, and presumed true, then one is likely in Theory. If one embraces experience, takes on new challenges, and allows room for risk, he or she is likely trusting in past experiences as a way to help navigate new experiences. We must conclude here for tonight. Good evening to all of you. We will have more to say about 2015 in 2015. Until then, we can say with authentic encouragement for each of you to have and create a happy new year. It may be a simple mark on the calendar, but it does mark a shift of invitation into psychological, spiritual, and physical possibilities again. Goodbye, for now.

    What Priests WANT and NEED

    [Extracted from: NYC Michael Speaks: Wants & Needs of Essence Roles] MEntity: We understand that Troy has asked for us to discuss what we might describe as the WANT and the NEED of each Essence Role, so we’ve looked at this in a way that we hope will be easy to validate for each of you and your Roles. ... We will speak to the PRIESTS now: What Priests WANT and are more consciously motivated by in terms of navigation is TO GUIDE.
 Priests want to Guide. They want to steer and want to orient others in a direction that they have deemed to be of most benefit to that individual or group. So what we would describe for the Priest in terms of want, is the WANT TO GUIDE. What the Priest often NEEDS and is subconsciously motivated by, in terms of navigation is, DETACHMENT, to step back. The Priest needs to lose the investment in what it is that they wish to guide or what it is that they are trying to steer. When Priests fulfill that need to detach, to step back from, they become much more capable of guiding. For those of you in this room participating, as we cross your Role, feel free to speak up in terms of validating or questioning the Role as we are speaking about it. The Priests in the room: do you have comments or questions? [Question] Does detachment have something to do with personal obligation or personal attitude; would it mean that we have to take it less personal? MEntity: Yes. By detachment, that is exactly how we would further phrase that: to not take it, to take things, so personally; to step back from it; to distance; to create that differentiation between that which you are guiding and your being a guide. Because the Priests are inspirational Roles, it's very easy to fall into the confusion between Projection and Reflection. The way we differentiate these two words is that Reflection allows to you empathize with another person or a group. It allows you to see the bigger picture and see yourself in that bigger picture, whereas Projection (which is very easy for the Priest to do) is to impose their vision on the group so they are no longer individuals, or an individual, involved. It's more about what the Priest thinks is best. So when you can detach, it's much easier to move into that state of reflection where you see yourself reflected, but not projected on to them.

    How Priests Create

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Open Floor] Nick: Is there a method that can be used to become more creative? MEntity: ... We believe understanding your Role in Essence is a good place to start. Each Role has a basic NEED to create and a default Creation. PRIESTS and Servers NEED to create Inspiration, with the Priest defaulting to Guidance in the Positive and Steering in the Negative; Servers with Nurturing in the Positive and Manipulation in the Negative.

    Priests Have 2 Inputs

    [Extracted from Michael Speaks: Inputs] MEntity: ... First, we will define “INPUT” as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends. ... 2 of the Roles in Essence have TWO INPUTS; these are the Priest and Server. ... ALL FRAGMENTS have at least One Input focused on NOW, or in other words, capable of being focused on the present, the task at hand, the moment, etc. The Inspiration Roles of Priest and Server have an additional Input as a means to maintain a connection to what INSPIRES them. In general, the Two Inputs for the Priest will have one focused on the Task At Hand, while the other maintains the Vision, or Higher Ideal. For the Server, one Input is focused on the Task At Hand, while the other is focused on the Common Good, or WHAT IS NEEDED. Inspirational Roles were the Tao’s idea of providing the universe with a means to provide for ALL FRAGMENTS an access to something “beyond the moment.” It could be said that the Priest then provides access to “what is beyond the Self”, while the Server provides access to “what is within the Self.” ... The Single-Input Roles are focused on directly experiencing the Planes, the Dual-Input Roles are focused on expanding beyond them, the Triple-Input Role is focused on keeping the truth entertaining, and the Quintet-Input Role is focused on creating new contexts for it all.

    Priests: Power of Resonance

    [Excerpted from OMW: Manifesting Power] MEntity: We will discuss the concept of Power with you today. First, we will clarify what is meant by Power in our teaching, which we think is a meaning that extends to include most uses of the word. In our teaching, Power is an Expression Axis term. This is because Power can come from any number of sources and be implemented through any number of methods, but it requires Form, Expression, for it to be in existence. All terms on the Expression Axis require a move into Form for existence. The terms we choose for our Overleaf system are part of every individual life in some way, even as each Personality is a particular combination of emphasized terms. For example, one grows in a lifetime even if one does not have a Goal of Growth. Each fragment will have to contend with his or her relationship to Power, even if the Mode is not Power. Power is a spectrum that describes one's presence. The form of any kind of Power can range from between violent oppression that destroys to a quiet lucidity that awakens. Each Essence comes with a kind of built-in source of Power. How that comes into form is up to that fragment, and we have seen that every fragment will explore the entire range from violence to lucidity. Each Essence Role has a specific source or style of Power. We will share these with you, now. Keep in mind that Power is either GENERATED or EXTRACTED. There are other terms that could be used to describe these, but these terms will do. Power either comes from within, or without. Power that comes from within is regenerative and unlimited. Power that comes from without is dependent and limited. Keep this in mind as we describe the various Power of each Role. ... PRIESTS PRIESTS carry within them the Power of RESONANCE. The Power of Resonance is the capacity for being the facilitating factor that brings one part or person into harmony with another part or person. When this Power is dependent and extracted, it shows up as VIBRATION. This is the forcing of parts into resonance. This can be exhausting for the Priest, or those around the Priest, because it depends upon the force of another to keep this Vibration intact as a source of Resonance. When Resonance is from within and regenerative, it shows up as NATURE. This is a facilitation of one to return to natural state as a means of Resonance, rather than a state that is forced. It is the use of natural frequency as a means of Resonance, rather than the use of forced vibration. The Priest who can come back to herself or himself, or help others to come back to themselves, as opposed to forcing or driving forward away from where/how one is, can bring about this Power of Resonance as natural. [ViP] I'm trying to understand Vibration vs Nature for Priests better, but it sounds essentially true MEntity: In response to Visaish, we point out the difference between Vibration and Nature as being the difference between forcing Resonance vs creating/finding Resonance. Imagine the difference between forcing two people to get along because they must get along, rather than helping them to find a common ground for relating.

    Priests: Living as Essence

    [Excerpted from Michael Speaks: Living as Essence.] MEntity: Today we will speak to you about "living as Essence," or "manifesting Essence," which essentially translates into living from the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. What we will share today is relative to the Essence Roles, so your particular dynamic of Overleaves is not relevant to how one's Essence Manifests, as there are consistencies to the core qualities of each Role. However, because of your own Overleaves' dynamics, you may find variations on what we share. ... If one thinks of each life being a story, then what we can do to help each of you understand how you live as Essence is to put this in light of the story of your life. ... For the PRIEST, the question might be: DOES THIS STORY REALLY MATTER? Priests, more often than other Roles, can lend heavy weight to the lightest of stories. If there is a misstep, an accident, a bad choice, a wrong turn, well, it must mean SOMETHING. And so the Priest who seeks to live as Essence can help herself greatly by asking, "DOES THIS STORY REALLY MATTER?" In many cases, the Priest will probably state "yes!" so the question can be extended to be "DOES THIS STORY REALLY MATTER THAT MUCH?" or "....more than this or that?" Sometimes the Priest requires some clarification in perception so that depth of vision returns. Otherwise, the depth of vision is flattened by the presumption that everything is equally meaningful. When they are outraged, agitated, distracted, it can be helpful to ask this question so that this depth can return, and the living as Essence can soften the edges.

    Sense of Orientation

    [This material was originally posted by Maureen as a private session transcript on November 4, 2010. Permission was granted for placement in the Study Library.] Maureen: The sense associated with Priests is Orientation. I've never seen a description of this sense anywhere. How does Michael perceive this sense operating in Priest lives and to myself in particular? MEntity: This term was chosen to describe the capacity for the Priest to intuitively sense the appropriate direction for any fragment toward its Higher Good. It is simply a specific use of intuition, often activated by Essence Recognition. When one recognizes the profound validity of an individual beyond his or her present Personality, not only in terms of the current lifetime as it includes a past, present, and future, but including the possibility of a soul, this is Essence Recognition. The Priest has a keen capacity for being a compass, so to speak, for specific directions, or orientations. And those directions or orientations are relative to either the Priest's agenda or the search of the other fragment or group of fragments. All forms of Intuition include all or some of the basic Senses in a synthesis that combines and extends into a "new" or hyper- Sense. Orientation is one example as this combines the sense of Sight and Touch into a unique form of guidance. Orientation is an Active Sense in that it requires Interaction (a form of Touch) to fulfill the Vision (a form of Sight). How the Priest uses this Sense is a matter of Choice, and is played out between the Poles of Compassion and Zeal, with Compassion bringing Orientation through inspiring oneself or another to aim for the Higher Good that is the Vision, and Zeal bringing Orientation through imposing upon oneself or another the aim for the perceived Higher Good. ### end of transcript ### Note: You may comment on the original post.

  20. Comey quoting Becket, ‘Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?’ Anyone know Comey's overleaves. Is he a priest? This whole thing is so surreal. I wouldn't be a bit surprised. We even have a character named REALITY WINNER leaking information that could take down the REALITY LOSER in the White House.

    Artisan Casting

    This material was obtained in a POF session on December 21, 2014. Janet: ... you have given some general information about the effect of Artisan casting. I suspect there is a flavor associated to the role that has Artisan casting. My sister is a Server, I work with a man who is an Artisan-cast Warrior, and I of course am an Artisan-cast Artisan. Can you briefly explain how Artisan casting provides flavor to the Server vs. the Warrior vs. the Artisan? Or is there no real difference to the effect of casting to each role? MEntity: As for Artisan Casting: the Role makes a definitive difference in how Casting is used, yes. In the simplest of terms, it could be said that: The Server would be CREATIVELY NURTURING/SERVING, or DELUSIONALLY BOUND/TRAPPED. The Artisan would be INNOVATIVELY/INGENIOUSLY/PRODUCTIVELY CREATIVE, or UNREALISTICALLY/CONFUSINGLY/NEUROTICALLY/PARANOID DELUSIONAL. The Warrior is CREATIVELY PERSUASIVE, or DELUSIONALLY COERCIVE. The Scholar would be CREATIVELY EXPERIENCED/KNOWLEDGEABLE, or DELUSIONALLY THEORETICAL/LOGICAL/ABSTRACT. Sages would be CREATIVELY DISSEMINATING/PROPAGATING/COMMUNICATING, or DELUSIONALLY ORATING/LECTURING/SOAPBOXING. The Priest might be CREATIVELY COMPASSIONATE/WARM/BENEVOLENT, or DELUSIONALLY ZEALOUS/EARNEST/STRIDENT. The King would be CREATIVELY MASTERFUL/SKILLFUL, or DELUSIONALLY TYRANNICAL/REPRESSIVE/OPPRESSIVE.
