ENERGY REPORT 

JULY 2012

As a cycle of pre-measured time unfolds, such as a year, it can be anticipated in understanding similar to describing and anticipating any Personality. Any system, such as another Personality system, Astrology, and even frequencies and meanings of color, could be used to describe these cycles of time, as they could also be used to describe geographical locations, communities, etc. because if there is a basic understanding of any system, it can be superimposed in a way that is quite useful and empowering. The greater the understanding of the system, the greater the understanding of that which is being superimposed upon.

However, a vital, key awareness in any process of interpretation or superimposition is that “the map is never the terrain.” In other words, we can describe the year in Overleaves, Astrological terms, Color, etc, but that year will never exist through only those words; you still must live through the year as a way to know that year. This is true of any map.

The ATTITUDE in our system of Personality is the individual’s “map” of the terrain through which they will journey. It is your system of superimposition and interpretation. The Attitude is the lens through which one perceives, interprets, and archives his or her life, but IT IS NOT THE LIFE.

When one looks at a map of New York City, it is not the same thing as walking its streets. When one looks at the stories of history books, it is not the same thing as having been there. When one looks through the eyes of his or her Attitude, it is not the same thing as what is being seen.

We point this out because the shift in July moves in emphasis from the MODE to the ATTITUDE.

Your Attitude is your collection of maps. One’s Attitude is never just one map, but many, and always a collection that supports the same basic system of interpretation and superimposition that you are working to explore. This system is described by the name of the Attitude, One begins to collect maps of the terrain of their life soon after the 2nd Internal Monad, or when one actually begins to develop his or her own stable mobility. The maps used at 10 years old are very different from the maps used at 21 or 45 or 75, but they can be strikingly similar, with the maps building in extensiveness rather than in replacement, though a complete replacement of one’s maps can and does change, depending upon imprinting.

As with our own Overleaf System, or any mapping system, the system of interpretation and superimposition is fairly neutral, and cannot determine the experiences that one will have when actually exploring the “terrain.” For example, the Idealist or a Spiritualist Attitude do not have an easier time, or a better perspective, than a Cynic or a Skeptic, but these different Attitudes do have very different systems of interpretation and superimposition; very different maps.

One of the reasons we find that the cycles of a year move through an emphasis on the Attitude is so that all Attitudes may have a period of time each year to “see” the maps that may not be their own. We might compare this to one person becoming rather dependent upon a Subway Map of New York City, but then finding themselves looking at a map of walking tours through the Parks of New York City. It is not that one is better than the other, but having exposure to both (and more) can greatly enhance one’s understanding of the city, and this can be said about your own exposure to the different Attitudes and maps that are used around you. You will always return to your own map, but there would come to be a sense of these other maps that can be carried with you and understood, even if not your default map. This allows you to understand the greater collective experience. To deny this expansion would be similar to someone describing New York City only terms of its Subway routes, denying all maps of waterways, Restaurants or Parks or Museums, etc. There is a necessity for multiple maps for a single terrain, because a single terrain offers up multiple layers of experiences.

Your Attitude is not the truth, it is merely your means of exploring the truth.

Soul Age often corresponds to the number of maps one can carry, if you will. The younger the soul, the fewer the maps, and the more invested and engrossed one is with the maps that are one’s own. However, as the soul grows, the Personalities begin to carry around more maps, or put in terms relative to our Teaching, the Attitude expands. As the soul ages, its corresponding Personalities seek to understand more and more maps that are not one’s own, and this is why we share the Energy Report.

Understanding the collective world as it is being explored through a dominant, collective Attitude, helps one to expand upon one’s place within the largest map of all, that eventually includes all of you.

As July unfolds, the collective emphasis is moving into the Attitude of Spiritualist. This means that the shift of perspective, or the system of interpretation and superimposition, is one toward POTENTIAL and POSSIBILITY.  As with any move through cycle, there tends to come an “entrance” through the more focused, restricted, and often fearful Negative Pole, and eventually a move into the broader, more inclusive, often loving Positive Pole. In this case, it would mean that July will probably begin by exploring Potential and Possibility through the more restricted, fearful, and focused lens. The perspective would be one that still emphasizes Potential and Possibility, but may tend toward the worst-case possibilities and potentials. This is not a bad thing. It is natural, and is intended to be a helpful perspective. One cannot explore the greater and preferable possibilities and potentials without, first, exploring the potential pitfalls and possible hurdles.

The Negative Pole of Spiritualist is described as BELIEF. Belief is (consciously or unintentionally) confusing what MIGHT be true for what IS true. Just because something may be true does not mean that it is true, but Belief will insist that something is true, despite all lack of experience, and it often requires a rejection of feedback, facts, and discernment. If Spiritualist Attitude is about “what could be,”, then BELIEF is the insistence on “what could be” as being the same thing as the truth, instead of remaining as a potential truth. Belief is synonymous with Faith, or more accurately, Blind Faith. Beliefs are systems of interpretation and superimpositions that you have decided are true, but either have no evidence or support for that truth or perspective, or have rejected all evidence and support for the contrary. Belief could be understood as a map that has no terrain, or when one insists that the map IS the terrain, and blindly moves about based upon determined symbolism, rather than on feedback, facts, validation, discernment, etc.

BELIEF is not necessarily a “bad thing,” as the Negative Pole is entered precisely for the process of discernment, validation, feedback, etc. It is an opportunity to look at what you Believe vs what is true. It is only when one decides to remain there that this Negative Pole is “negative.”

Having a set of possibilities and potentials is something that experience helps to weed through so that what is true for you can come to light, not only in terms of a Personal level (what is true for you), but a Global (what is true relative to Earth’s species, sciences, and nature) and Universal level (what is true of the Universe regardless of what is true for a species or planet), as well. Holding on to those possibilities and potentials (whether “good” or “bad”) is not the same thing as remaining in the Negative Pole.

Once one has an understanding of all that he or she thinks or knows is possible or potential, then the aim is for the Positive Pole, which is VERIFICATION.

Verification is the process of validating what you may have been told, or what you may have decided, is possible and potential. It is the measuring of the map against the terrain, and either updating the map, or replacing it.  Verification allows one to see what is true, rather than simply insisting on what is true. Again, if you carry around a set of possibilities and potentials that have no validation, that is not the same thing as Belief. Some truths take time and energy to uncover, build, discover, validate, and know. Everyone carries around a great set of potentials and possibilities, but it is only when there is no interest in Verifying these that there comes to be fear, blind faith, and Belief.

And so it is that July may come in as an awkward mix of sensing and anticipating exciting prospects, but finding oneself directing attention toward potential problems or pitfalls. Knowing these are possibilities, you can go forward and Verify, but if you treat these as truths before that, you have fallen into Belief.

Remember that while there is an emphasis on the Attitude now, it is being built from the previous emphases of the Goal and Mode, and the Role and Center.... The “season” of the Attitude helps to put together all that has come to be experienced in the first part of the year, by not only and brings in the mapping systems for helping to determine where to go, next.

We think that as July unfolds for our students, it might be experienced as an extreme between overwhelming disorientation and striking clarity. This would depend upon how much you might feel you must sort out as you pivot into a direction that is of your choice. As this year is one that we described through the Role of King, Emotional/Instinctive Centering, Goal of Growth, and Passion Mode, then it goes that we are seeing a great portion of our students passively or actively stripping the life of anything that goes against a sense of Mastery, Inspirational Perception, Evolution and Meaning, and Self-actualization, or bringing more of “you” out of you and into the world.  July may be the first month where this begins to sink in; that you may be leaving a great deal of “you” behind that is no longer supportive of the directions you would like to grow.

If you find that July has launched into a state of overwhelm, we suggest that you consider using your own Attitude, whatever that may be, to interpret your life in the best possible light you can, because the collective Attitude of Spiritualist is supportive of this. For those who are experiencing the greatest overwhelm, we suggest that you are seeing the results of a shift you have been longing for, for a very long time. The next three months would be of some importance to you for stabilizing yourself as you pivot, but allow yourself the freedom for these changes and invite yourself to expand your map, or your collection of maps. When one has been in a momentum for a long time, the shift can seem shocking, but there would be very little chance of avoiding that. Sometimes when one has been traveling a road for a long time in the dark, when the lights come up, the turn that had always been intended is “right there,” and to swerve onto the nearest off-ramp is the only way to get onto it, which means you may find yourself thrown about a bit.

If you find that July has launched into a kind of state of clarity, we suggest that you consider using your own Attitude, whatever that may be, to consciously choose your priorities. You may not be in the same position as those who are overwhelmed, but you could easily fall into this if you do not follow through with your own perspective of clarity toward those things that have come to be understood as your priorities. Prioritizing will not eliminate your other potentials and possibilities, but will simply help to fulfill the potential and possibility of that which is most important to you.

Keep in mind that our Energy Reports here describe the experiences of those who tend to be actively participating “in the world,” but those who may have more insular lives might not find much relevance here.

Helpful thoughts over JULY might be:

1) I CAN HAVE ANYTHING I WANT, BUT I CANNOT HAVE EVERYTHING I WANT
This is an important phrase for those seeking to accomplish or fulfill anything that requires time, experience, patience, energy, and effort. Possibilities are always infinite, but you can only do so much, and experience so much. When one presumes that one should be able to have everything one wants NOW, it can halt the progress and effectiveness of nearly every effort. When one presumes one should have all of the priorities of possibility, or none at all, progress and effectiveness can greatly diminish. Organizing possibilities into priorities helps create a circuit of effectiveness and progress that can help one to remain inspired, to grow, to master, and to enjoy this life.


2) THIS MAP IS NOT THE ONLY MAP
As July unfolds, it will be helpful to remember that, no matter how invested you are in your truth, even if backed by experience, there are other versions of interpretation and superimposition that exist just as validly as the one with which you have come to be so invested. Often, the greater the change in your life, the more likely the necessity for you to upgrade your way of interpreting your life. You will never be without your map, but you can sometimes find yourself lost in it, instead of living it. Remembering that your map is not the only map, and that the map is not the terrain, can greatly free you to understand and enjoy any great changes that come into your life.

DATES OF INTEREST

JULY 4th - 7th - this is not a Divergence or a Convergence, but something we might best describe as a “window.” This period of time might be experienced as exploring several possibilities, either in the imagination, or through conversations, etc, or it may simply come as a kind of floating, limbo-like period. These “windows” tend to be generated when there is a sense of a greater collective shift in the year ahead, and this helps to align or move away from that greater shift.

JULY 27th - Another “window,” with an emphasis on comparing perspectives (internally or externally) among those closest to you about plans for the rest of the year.

Since we're in the Attitude Season of the year....  In this July Energy Report from 2012 there's some good information worth reading about what the Attitude is - the "map" the terrain and more.
