Racism

 

[M_Entity]

Hello to all of you. We are here.

 

We understand the topic tonight to be “Racism.”

 

We can begin by stating that we believe Racism, as it is understood, is simply a subcategory of a larger categorical rejection of, abuse of, neglect of, or dismissal of a particular group. We believe Racism is included along with Sexism, Species-ism, and other minor “-isms” within the larger context of “Classism.” Classism exists across the board, so to speak, and is included even within the sub-groups who claim to be victims of any particular “-ism.”

 

To understand Racism, one must first understand Classism.

 

Classism is not particular to any Soul Age as it might be guessed to be of Young Soul origin. It is not. Classism exists even within the gentler Old Soul communities, as well. We will define Classism as “the inherent need for identity that creates the illusion of division within social constructs.” Classism in not linked to particular Soul Ages because it is actually linked to particular Overleaves, which can be used in any lifetime by any Soul Age or Essence.

 

Classism tends to be rooted in the interesting dynamic within a society as it is defined by the predominant Centering. In nearly all cases, the Classism moves in this direction: Intellect over Emotional over Moving. Inherent within Races, there ARE certain genetic inclinations that make that particular Race more potentially Moving, Intellectual, or Emotional in Centering. Naturally, the darker the pigmentation of skin, the more inclined that Race is toward Moving. The lack of pigmentation tends an inclination toward Intellect. This is NOT a rule, but an INCLINATION. We do not say, nor do we mean to imply, that there is a rule to define Centering based on skin color.

 

In nearly all cases of Slavery and Racism within your history, the basis has almost entirely been based in differing Centers. When Centers are the same, the Classism moves to division based next on the PART. So, even within a society of intellectually centered Caucasians, the Emotional PARTs will usually take dominance over the Moving PARTs.

 

This seemingly “natural” hierarchy is NOT VALID, of course, but is based in the vague longing toward “perfection.” Inherent in all fragments is that “longing”, however vague or clear. This longing is from the sense of separation and the apparent struggle to rise beyond that that seems to epitomize that separation: the Physical Plane. The Physical Plane is the most “separated” you will EVER be from anything; even internally there is the greatest rift you will ever experience as the division between “you” and Essence.

 

If there could ever be an “original sin” identified, we believe it would be more accurate to identify the unconscious misinterpretation of the Physical Plane as a trap that must be risen above. By extension, this misinterpretation has manifested in many divisive ways. ALL “-isms” are a means to gain that illusory rise above what is most symbolic of what has trapped you here.

 

If you examine your films, literature, history, you will find that most forms of SERIOUS praise and awards are given to those of intellectual stature. Frivolous forms of praise and awards are given to the more emotional categories of entertainment, charity, and the more moving centered sports.

 

As we said that Classism is not exclusive to any Soul Age, we CAN say that the Mature Soul Age does the greatest work in alleviating as much of this as is possible within a Sentient Species. As can be seen in your world today, more and more methods of honoring all forms of Centering are coming forth and being taken far more seriously.

 

With all of this being said, we must make it clear that Classism IS NOT a result of Centering, but a result of Fear, or Chief Feature. This fear is simply justified through the tool of Centering. The Exalted Chief Features will almost always be the dominant oppressor over the Ordinal Chief Features, many times despite the Centering.

 

We will continue now with your questions for us. Otherwise, this is a strong foundation for beginning to understand the dynamics behind divisions within Class, Race, Gender, etc. QUESTIONS?

 

[sam-nemo] What is the origin of races? How did they begin? I read a story in the Urantia book.

 

[M_Entity] The origins of races is a grand topic, but we can say that we agree that the species eventually used by what is our Sentience began approximately 8 million years ago in what is now known as East Africa.

 

[sam-nemo] To shorten the topic, did they pop up at one time or were they affected by genetic manipulation or alien experiments?

 

[M_Entity]

The varying Races had their development in part due to nomadic movement across lands, but more due to the genetic splicing effects when our Sentience moved to this planet.

 

To respond to your question “in short,” we believe the “genetic manipulation” had more to do with varying Races than anything. Approximately 6 million years ago, the most dramatic divisions began. This was based on the genetic splicing and the care that the “aliens” had in creating the most effective and practical genetic bodies for the varying locations seeded.

 

[MaryBV] How much of racism is based on bad past life experiences with or as part of a culture/people?

 

[M_Entity] We would have to say that ANTI-racism is more indicative of past life experiences with or as part of a culture/people. Racism in its truest form is based in LACK of experiences.

 

[Val] Please expand on the word “trapped” in your explanation and Exalted chief features, what is your meaning is?

 

[M_Entity] We meant the word “trapped” literally, as in a confining and unchosen/unwanted condition of which there is great difficulty in escaping. The Exalted Chief Features are Greed, Arrogance, and Impatience. Because “you” exist primarily as “spirit,” the confines of the Physical Plane from the very beginning are quite uncomfortable and the challenges inherent to the Physical Plane are quite a shock to Essence. This affects the lifetimes in ways that are conscious and unconscious, leading nearly all extant to seek a vague sense of “somewhere else,” or “home,” be that in another person, a career, another location, or even another life, etc. This seeking eventually finds a balance and turns into “spirituality,” and eventually, as well, you realize you have never actually left “home.”

 

[JNelson] Why would genetics predispose certain people towards certain overleaves?

 

[M_Entity]

Overleaves ARE genetic. Personality, while affected by environment, education, conditioning, is primarily based in genetics, in the same way a Body is. There is, literally, a gene that predisposes a Personality toward Intellect, as there is also a gene that predisposes a Personality toward Moving. We remind you that we say PREDISPOSES. This is overridden or flowed with as the life unfolds and choices and reactions are experienced.

 

The Personality, even as it is defined by our system, is a biological description. In some parallels where genetic identification and manipulation is more accurate and acceptable, Personalities can be altered or at least identified and described quite early in a child’s life. This can and will be abused, of course, but as its more practical uses are found in some parallels it is a form of healing and/or preparation for a child’s life.

 

[JNelson] So do fragments incarnate into specific bodies simply because they’re programmed with the desired overleaves already or would the fragment reprogram the overleaves itself upon incarnation?

 

[M_Entity]

The Overleaves are chosen first, as the Soul ages, and then the closest parental genetic pool is chosen to create the body. In early incarnations, predominate Essence dynamics usually determines the body a Soul uses, based on an already-defined Personality developing. For instance, a female body is 100% Female Energy (or Creative Energy) when a Soul is not using it. An Essence with predominantly Creative Energy in its ratio will be inclined to have female bodies in their earlier lives. Later, the Essence will more consciously choose against this as a means to learn balance and other various lessons. Eventually, the Energy Ratio can be used effectively regardless of the body’s gender. Infant Souls do not discriminate their choices of bodies as they would simply rather be born as soon as possible to escape the discomfort of being dead. Eventually, as the lessons of survival teach, they learn to choose and create more and more consciously. As the Soul learns, the creation of a lifetime and a body becomes an art form.

 

If there are no more questions, we will say good night.

Well, that could be an explanation of 'what the fuck was I thinking when i chose these parents?'

Could be a great question to ask, "Why did I choose my birth parents?"  ?

Why "naturally"? (This whole idea makes me uncomfortable. It just seems to reinforce the idea that people with darker skin aren't as smart. I know Michael said it was just "inclination", but still...)

 

Also, isn't there other channelling that states that the division of the races came about much later? Like... thousands of years ago versus millions? Or am I remembering incorrectly?

@Sarah, please note that this session was done in 2002, well before Geraldine's work on the Human Timeline Project. So, the information in this transcript about gene splicing being 6 million years ago is incomplete and/or inaccurate in comparison with what Geraldine got. I don't remember the exact session, and search doesn't work within those transcripts, but Michael said the races were 'created' about 5500 years ago when human "samples" were saved in anticipation of the event now often recorded in mythology as the 'great flood'; otherwise, the species came close to being wiped out. 

 

You can see the event listed in Eric's timeline (Outline of the Human Timeline Project), so I know I'm not imagining that Geraldine got this information. The races were not intentionally created as black vs white, etc., but evolved from the climates in which humans were re-seeded following the cataclysms. Someone may be able to point to the specific transcripts that I am not able to find at this moment. 

 

There have also been other sessions that indicate that our overleaves are built into our genetics. We don't have any specific information on how one might recognize a Stoic Attitude, for instance, via specific DNA sequences, but I suspect that's ultimately possible. Possibly there is something about skin pigmentation that can reflect certain DNA sequences associated with planned centering. 

 

Finally, Michael did not say that "people with darker skin aren't as smart." They spoke of the Moving and Intellectual Centers, which do not correlate with intelligence. It is a fault in this transcript that "Intellect" was used as a shortcut for "Intellectual Center."

Okay. I think it was the wording that threw me. I interpreted "Intellect" as... well, "intellect".

 

I must've been thinking of the info that came from the Human Timeline Project. 5500 years ago sounds closer to what I remember reading.

 

I wonder if the information talking about 6 million years referred more to actual races than variations within Homo Sapiens. It would interesting to get some clarification on that in the future.

 

Is anyone working on the HTP now, or has it been put on hold?

HTP is on hold. We WILL pick it up again. It's just that focus is now on books that we may publish in the near future that are not fringe. 

 

P.S. As a reminder to everyone -- I updated the titles on all the contents of the HTP to include a date stamp as the initial part of the title. If you sort the list by Title, it will be in the order the sessions were done. This is helpful if you're trying to follow Geraldine's thought paths while planning the sessions. This approach is being implemented gradually on transcripts throughout the site: sorting by date is not useful because we transferred the bulk of TLE to this site in May 2016. You can definitely see the strengthening of Troy as a channel if you read transcripts in the order they were created.
