"Soul Age Levels"

August 25, 2013

Channel: Troy Tolley

 

MEntity: Hello to all of you. We are here, now. We understand the subject is further exploration and review of the Soul Age Levels, and that there is an initial question you would choose as a starting point. We can begin our exchange.

 

[Maureen]
DESCRIPTION: By request: an exploration of the Soul Age Levels and how these work as descriptions of where one is in the process of expanding consciousness.

 

Michael, would you provide a description for each of the Soul Age Levels focusing on the progressive elements or perceptual states that come into play as we work our way through all the Soul Ages, with emphasis today on the Old Soul Age, with a follow-up of Mature if we have enough time.

 

Would you elaborate on how learning and insight can be complemented, at the same Level, across Soul Ages. For example, are the same Levels at a different Soul Age complementarily equal? Would a Level 4 Mature Soul and a Level 4 Old Soul be in an advantageous position to learn from each other?

 

MEntity:
Each Soul Age has 7 Levels. Each Level has 7 Internal Monads. To progress through a Soul Age LEVEL, one must complete/fulfill each of the Internal Monads. Internal Monads may take several lifetimes to fulfill, progressively.

 

This is fairly simplistic and is review for most of you.

 

If one were to complete all 7 Internal Monads in a single lifetime, the Essence took only one lifetime at one Level. If one takes 21 lifetimes to work through all of the Internal Monads, then it took 21 lifetimes to progress through that Level.

 

Common across ALL Soul Age Levels is this process.

 

This is because there is no lifetime that starts completely intact with its memories, experiences, and consciousness. It must be regained, rekindled, accessed, activated. In short, every lifetime is a process of remembering.

 

This loss of memory is not on the scale of Essence, but relative to the new body. A new brain with new cells means that it will take time for that body to represent the consciousness/sentience.

 

The first 7 years of a life is almost entirely about this fusion.

 

So in every lifetime, one must be born and stay alive (first internal monad), then activate independent mobility (second internal monad), then activate self-sufficiency (third internal monad), then shed imprinting and activate self-definition (fourth internal monad), then free the self from self-imposed limitations and recreate the self from wisdom and experience (5th internal monad), then profoundly embrace and comprehend one's mortality (6th internal monad), then exit without attachments (7th internal monad).

 

Some of these are more difficult to complete than others, depending on the Personality, but once one is completed, even if no others beyond that are completed within the lifetime, it is done, and only the remaining would be required for progress through the Level.

 

For example: if one were to complete the 3rd Internal Monad, but not complete any beyond this in that lifetime, then the next lifetime will not only have an "easier" time of moving through the first three, but now only has to complete the 4th (and beyond, if possible.)

 

However, even if that subsequent lifetime only completes the 2nd Internal Monad, it is not a setback for progress through the Soul Age Level. It may be a lull in progress, but only technically. Every lifetime contributes.

 

We know of one fragment who took over 100 lifetimes to move through one Internal Monad.

 

We share the details and review of the Internal Monads as they relate to the Levels because where one is in his or her Internal Monads can help give you an idea of where one is in the Level.

 

Essence is in no hurry, so this information is not to be used as a means for pressure and measurement, but more as a means for orientation and expansion of choice. Of course, if one chooses to use this information against himself or herself, or to use it as a means of feeling better than someone else, it is up to them, but that is a fairly useless use of the information.

 

So these Internal Monads are common among ALL Soul Age Levels.

 

The reason everything is reset upon progression into a new Soul Age Level so that one must now cycle through the progression of Internal Monads for each Level is because each Level is a new context and perception.

 

Though this is a bit misleading, since no grading or approval is involved in any way.

 

Another commonality among all Levels is the polarities of each Level:

 

Regardless of one's Soul AGE, these Polarities will help to define the emphases of COURSES, if you will, relative to the Soul Age.

 

The FIRST LEVEL is always about the spectrum between PURPOSE and SIMPLICITY.

 

The SECOND LEVEL is always about the spectrum between STABILITY and BALANCE.

 

The THIRD LEVEL is always about the spectrum between ENTERPRISE and VERSATILITY.

 

The FOURTH LEVEL is always about the spectrum between CONSOLIDATION and ACHIEVEMENT.

 

For many, there is a pivotal lifetime that we refer to as MID-CYCLE, which combines the elements of the Third and Fourth Levels.

 

The FIFTH LEVEL has as its spectrum the polarities between EXPANSION and ADVENTURE.

 

The SIXTH LEVEL has as its spectrum the polarities of HARMONY and CONNECTION.

 

The SEVENTH LEVEL has as its spectrum the polarities of INCULCATION and ECLECTICISM.

 

All of these are relevant to every Soul Age.

 

Since your interest is in starting with the OLD Soul Age, we will start there for some combining that can help one to see how all of this comes together in helping describe where one is in the process of evolving contexts, perceptions, and consciousness.

 

Because this is an incarnational process, it is not just a process of accepting oneself as BEING Essence, it is a process of accepting the creation of Essence that is YOU.

 

On an Essence Level, this acceptance of BEING is about comprehending one's place in the vastness of the cosmos. This is difficult to comprehend while a Personality is rejecting itself.

 

In order for Essence to learn to accept itself as a creation, it must work through the experiences of Personalities accepting themselves as creations.

 

So every lifetime across the Old Soul Age is about self-acceptance, and this is played out through a multitude of ways.

 

It could be said that every Soul Age, or fragment, works toward self-acceptance, and that is true to some degree, but it is the Old Soul who seeks to accept the unacceptable, to embrace totality of Being, both as Personality and as Essence.

 

The Old Soul does this not through relationships as much as they do through exposure to "the world."

 

This is because the Old Soul has already worked through the myriad forms of relationships during the Mature Soul Age to learn about empathy, but now seeks to work to resolve contradictions, paradoxes, and discrepancies regarding TRUTH.

 

So the Old Soul gets preoccupied with how there are so many different truths when the greater truths are now being seen and comprehended.

 

What is the truth, then? How can one be so invested in "this" truth, when there are "better" truths?

 

It could be said, then, that the "school" of the Young Soul is Energy, and the "school" of the Mature is Love, while the School of the Old is Truth.

 

The Old Soul must make sense of a multitude of conflicting, contradictory, dichotic, and paradoxical truths as a means toward acceptance of one's Being, and the unacceptable.

 

Keeping this larger context in mind as the Old Soul AGE, or this School of Truth, then the Levels are one's map of exploration through that school of truths.

 

So a FIRST LEVEL OLD SOUL would tend to emphasize "the truth" of one's PURPOSE.

 

This tends to be explored through SIMPLICITY, first, and then moves into a sense of direction.

 

It is utterly horrifying to have come "this far" and then find that "we did this just for the fun of it?"

 

That phrasing is in jest, but it is fair.

 

Most fragments who arrive at this Level, or are manifesting at this Level, will succumb to a sense of exhaustion, of a daunting sense that one just wants to "go home," and is dreading the work of making sense of it all, and making sense of the self.

 

Now, adding in the Internal Monads within the Level, one who is, say, at the 3rd Internal Monad within the 1st Level of the Old Soul Age will be a combination of challenges and experiences around Self-sufficiency, Purpose/Simplicity, and Truth. Or put another way: discovering one's Truth of Purpose through Self-Sufficiency.

 

The 4th Internal Monad would be something like refining one's truth of purpose through self-definition.

 

And so on.

 

This gives you the gist of how the combination of terms and levels within levels can have more personal sense made of them.

 

Continuing on, then, the 2nd Level of the Old Soul Age would be about the Truth of Stability, or the Stability of Truth vs the Balance of Truth/Truth of Balance.

 

The 3rd Level would be about the Enterprise or Versatility of Truth.

 

Enterprise here is meant as a term to describe the comprehensive work that is required in an undertaking or project.

 

Versatility is meant here as a scattering of the focus that would otherwise be Enterprising.

 

The 4th Level would be that of the Consolidation or Achievement of Truth. Consolidation here is meant as the full expression of the whole Truth, whereas Achievement is the accomplishment of reaching and expressing the next truth.

 

(We can return to each of these for further elaboration during questions and answers.)

 

The 5th Level is about the Expansion of Truth and the Adventure of Truth.

 

The 6th Level is the Harmony of Truth through the Connections of Truths.

 

The 7th Level is about the Inculcation of Truth and the Eclecticism of Truth.

 

Do each of you see how these simple combination of terms can be relevant to your own Soul Age, presuming it is accurate, and presuming one is not manifesting strongly in focus through a different Soul Age? The Old Soul, even if manifesting at a younger Soul Age, tends to find some conscious resonance to the Soul Age Level.

 

[Maureen] Yes, I do Michael

[Kathryn41] yes
[MikeClev] yes
[Bobby] yes

 

MEntity:
We will open the floor to questions now as they relate to the topic. We know the elaboration today has been rather synopsized, but it is packaged so that the terms can be explored by you as students to discover on your own some of the meaning of your Soul Age and Level.

 

QUEUE IS NOW OPEN

 

[DianeHB] Could you elaborate more on what is meant by the "Enterprise of Truth"? I'm not understanding how those two go together.

 

MEntity:
As one explores one's relationship to Truth, and the concept of Truth, it tends to be done in steps, or as "Achievements." "I now believe this." "I know this to be true, now." "I understand this, now." "This suddenly makes sense to me." Achievements are the steps, the individual truths upon which greater truths are built. Enterprise is the growing form that is chosen/created through which those truths are expressed.

 

In many cases, this tends to be "the life." The life begins to model the wholeness of the truths.

 

[DianeHB] Ok, I'm starting to see it now. :)

 

MEntity:
The 1st Level of any Soul Age is about the exploration of the new perceptions and context. The 2nd Level is about the experimentation with the new perceptions and context. The 3rd Level is about owning those new perceptions and context. The 4th Level is then about bringing that back out into the world in some way.

 

For those who are 4th Level Old, there may be this understanding that one has progressed in the lifetime in definitive steps that lead to plateau, then more steps, another plateau, etc. The steps are achievements; the plateau are Enterprise. It is when one takes a break from learning and moves into applying.

 

Neither is at the expense of the other, of course, but there is emphasis in cycles.

 

Does this help?

 

[DianeHB] Do you mean 3rd Level or 4th Level in that last metaphor?
[DianeHB] And yes, it helps

 

MEntity:
Correction: we were describing Mid-Cycle, the combination of 3rd and 4th.

 

The Enterprise of Truth as the 3rd Level is the cohesion of one's sense of the truth from all of the Versatility of Truth that one collects across the lifetime. Those at the 3rd Level are learning to own the new perspective and context, but they struggle with many different truths about themselves, about others, about life, the cosmos, etc, eventually pulling them together into a wholeness that is the Enterprise.

 

This is much like the 3rd Internal Monad in that it is one's departure from depending on the truths of others, and collecting one's own.

 

[DianeHB] I see

 

MEntity: This then propels one forward into using one's own truths (enterprise).

 

[DianeHB] I can see this in me as I go through the 4th IM

 

MEntity: The Enterprise aspect is like the infrastructure built of parts collected through Versatility.

 

[royce] I guess what I am looking for is a good definition of what makes adventure more narrow than expansion. for instance, i throw myself into very unfamiliar situations like a recent gathering i went to and from that adventure i feel like a lot of truths came to surface. Adventure leads to truth leads to expansion leads to clearer insight of same truth? thanks

 

MEntity:
Polarities often refer to "narrow," but they just as often refer to "divided," or "fragmented." Often these are the same things. You are correct in stating that Adventure can lead to Expansion. It is only when one stays focused on Adventure does one reject Expansion. Expansion will always include Adventure, but Adventure does not always include Expansion.

 

Keep in mind that we are limited in selection of words in various languages, and keep in mind that our use of terms in different contexts can give them different meaning, so the use of Expansion and Adventure here as it refers to the polarities of the 5th Level is different from the use of those terms as Needs.

 

One reaches the Positive Pole "through" the Negative Pole. Only the Negative Pole can be exclusive. The Positive Pole is inclusive. So if you are going on Adventures as means for Expansion, then your Expansion is built from Adventures. For some, though, the emphasis on Adventure is only for stimulation, for distraction, or indulgence and addictions and fetish.

 

Does this help?

 

[royce] very much so, thank you

 

[brian_] Michael could you expand more upon details of the pivotal lifetime that you refer to as MID-CYCLE. What makes it pivotal, why is it important, what tends to occur during this lifetime, what effects does it have in Essence evolution?

 

MEntity:
Our earlier response to Diane was for this question, in that the Mid-Cycle is a combination of both the 3rd and 4th Level Polarities because those Polarities are so similar. They are so similar because one is about the cohesion of the infrastructure, or the underlying foundation, upon which, and through which the expression will come.

 

It is unique in that two Soul Levels overlap, if you will.

 

This makes the lifetime and Personality a bit confusing as there is a dance between the introspection and the expression, often as extremes, or at least as contradictions and inconsistencies.

 

It can be a pivotal lifetime because it "makes or breaks" the infrastructure that was secured during the 3rd Level, and there would tend to be a Review within the life, or after, that pulls it apart and rebuilds it.

 

[Maureen] Please elaborate on what is meant by the Inculcation of Truth and the Eclecticism of Truth at Level 7

 

MEntity:
This might be understood as the difference between living your truths as a means of teaching, healing, contributing, versus using them to differentiate yourself from, above, or below others.

 

Inculcation comes from repetition of application and modeling of your truths.

 

Eclecticism is deriving the truth from various sources, often then adjusting one's truths to adapt to others' truths.

 

Eclecticism is also an inconsistency in one's truths so that some are traded for more convenient ones, or appealing ones, or comfortable ones, etc. Eclecticism is that fragmentation of one's truths so that one begins to wonder what the hell one actually really knows.

 

Inculcation is the ownership of the responsibility one now has that comes with wisdom. It is not just something that makes one special, or unique and different.

 

Does this help?

 

[Maureen] Yes it does, Thanks Michael

 

MEntity: We can take one more question, but we must conclude after that.

 

[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."

 

Does this help?

 

[GeraldineB] Yes -- especially belief systems

 

MEntity: 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.
[GeraldineB] 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.

 

We can elaborate on each Role within the Soul Ages in further exchanges.

So much here! I especially like this description of the Internal Monads

In order for Essence to learn to accept itself as a creation, it must work through the experiences of Personalities accepting themselves as creations.

 

So every lifetime across the Old Soul Age is about self-acceptance, and this is played out through a multitude of ways.

 

Here I am again, loving this session again and finding new insights, which love urges me to share.

This particular thought really made me think, and eventually led me to an experience of vividry where a circuit of information (about accepting myself as a creation) was created between Personality and Essence that began to shrink and eventually became one, almost as if Essence was swallowing Personality whole.

The insight was about a new level of self-acceptance but I really don't have words to describe how it FELT. 

 

Now that I contemplate this, maybe I am experiencing a convergence. So much happening in this Nexus.

 

And! I just got to @DianeHB's question and it seems particularly relevant, so I just wanted to remind you of it ?

 Lordt, I identify with the last bit of this!😂

Wow. Hammer meet nail!  I have recently become pretty adamant on being truthful, not just with others, but myself.  Harder than I expected, I tend to lack internal willpower and am finding it very challenging to live up to my new standard.

Reading through this again and this time this bit stuck out to me.  Reading others has always been something I'm pretty well adapted to, but the more I learn and grow, the more I'm seeing this in my everyday life; both with people I know and total strangers.  

 

Part of this is challenging because I feel like I pick up on things about other people that they haven't even realized yet.  Like, I have to catch myself from uttering "spoilers" for their own personality 😅
