Abrading Overleaves - Internal & External

Recommended Posts


Michael, in today's Michael Speaks we would like to learn more about Abrading Overleaves, both Internal and External, by elaborating on the following: 1) a short Q&A on External Abrasion, 2) a statement you made to The Original Michael Group re: Internal Abrasion, and, 3) some insight you gave in a private session on the Geometry of the Overleaves.


1)  All Overleaves in the Negative Poles. All Overleaves on an Axis. Overleaves with numerical values that add up to more than 7. For example, the Exalted Action Axis carries an inherent value of 7 and will tend to have the most abrasion with other Overleaves. A King must learn very quickly how to work with this natural state of abrasion. It is what hones the King into a great leader. The Exalted Inspirational Axis has an inherent value of 6 and can be quite abrasive to all Overleaves not associated with Server (1). The inherent bond of a set of Overleaves on an Axis that "adds up" to 7, such as Re-evaluation (1) and Growth (6) also comes with inherent abrasion by being on an Axis together. This makes for a kind of yin/yang dynamic that helps the personality "slide" between these as necessary. It is a misnomer for us to use a King as an example above. We speak of the Axis that are King Overleaves. Abrasion is rarely between Roles, only the Overleaves and how they are used.


2) Where the "mathematics" are compatible, the contact may be established more easily. Just as the polarities emphasize reciprocity, so the mathematical balances reveal the presentation of the Fragments, by which we mean that the true personality establishes reciprocities within itself. Where this does not occur, we speak of overleaves that abrade inwardly, just as we have often pointed out the problems of overleaves that abrade between individual Fragments. These inward abrasions are occasionally perceived as neurotic aspects of a personality, and there are certainly times that we would agree with the assessment. But when such overleaves are chosen, they are intended to make certain experiences and lessons possible.*


3) The dynamic of his Overleaves would naturally make for a rather complex Personality, in that a great deal of his design is not particularly "straight-forward." If you can imagine the "shape" of Overleaves, many may be more like a faceted egg-shape when working together as a Personality, but some are more like blocks connected by circuitry. In the same way that some of our students explore our system as "Michael Math," there is also a kind of "geometry" to the Overleaves. In some combinations, the system is less cohesive, and relies upon a kind of circuitry among the parts, and this can sometimes break down, or seem disjointed to someone whose Overleaves are more "seamless."
