Is clothing a part of personality?

CLOTHING AND OTHER ADORNMENTS CONVEY TO ALL FAR MORE ABOUT INNER PSYCHOLOGY OF THE PERSONALITY THAN YOU EVEN NOW REALIZE. WE HAVE STRESSED TO ALL OF YOU THAT ENLIGHTENMENT IS FAR FROM DRAB, AND WHEN SOULS ADOPT PROTECTIVE COLORATION IT USUALLY HAS TO DO WITH INSECURITY AND FEAR OF THEIR OWN DESIRES AND WISHES. WE WOULD SEE ALL DECKED AS PEACOCKS RATHER THAN AS DRAB MUDHENS, AS DRABNESS IN CLOTHING USUALLY DENOTES DRABNESS OF THE SOUL. ONE FRAGMENT OF THIS ENTITY [Michael] REMEMBERS WEARING THE RED OF THE CARDINAL AND ENJOYING EVERY MOMENT OF IT. ALSO, MANY FRAGMENTS OF THIS ENTITY WERE BORN IN THE PURPLE AND GLORIED IN THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE AND YET SOMEHOW ACHIEVED TRANSCENDENCE.

What part of the Overleaves are in Essence and what part are in personality?

ALL OF THE OVERLEAVES ARE GEARED TO THE PHYSICAL PLANE AND THUS PRIMARILY OF THE FALSE PERSONALITY. OF COURSE, YOU CANNOT ALTER YOUR BODYTYPE OR ROLE EXCEPT BY SUBTLE EXTINGUISHMENT, AND THIS IS ACHIEVED ONLY AFTER ALL ELSE IS BALANCED. THUS THE ROLE CAN STILL MANIFEST IN ONE ACTING PRIMARILY OUT OF ESSENCE, BUT NOT TO ANY MEASURABLE EXTENT IN THE OCCULT MASTER.

Which Center am I in?

IN THE INTELLECTUAL PART OF MOVING CENTER.

Is _____’s (her husband) Essence Twin named _____?

NO.

Why does twinning occur? What is it?

TWINNING IS AN ALMOST NATURAL IMPULSE OF THE HUMAN SPECIES AND ONE OF THE LEAST UNDERSTOOD. THE DESIRE TO JOIN WITH ANOTHER OF LIKE MIND SUPERSEDES ALL OTHER IMPULSES, EVEN SOMETIMES THOSE NECESSARY FOR SURVIVAL IN A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT. THOSE WITH RECLUSIVE OVERLEAVES DO NOT EXHIBIT THIS IMPULSE AS STRONGLY AS OTHERS, BUT IT STILL HAPPENS TO THEM ALSO. THIS PROCESS HAS BECOME EXTREMELY BLURRED BY THE CULTURAL TABOOS AND THE ISOLATION THAT PERMEATES THE WAY OF LIFE. THERE IS SO MUCH SUSPICION ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE THAT THE TRULY INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP OF TWINS IS ALL BUT PRECLUDED, ESPECIALLY IF THE TWIN HAPPENS TO BE OF THE SAME GENDER.

Do whales twin?

YES, ALL CREATURES OF REASON TWIN.

Is it a random process?

NO, IT IS ELECTIVE AND BASED UPON INITIALLY COMPATIBLE OVERLEAVES. THIS OF COURSE MEANS THAT THE OVERLEAVES OF THE TWINS WILL NOT ALWAYS BE COMPATIBLE, WHICH MAKES SOME STRAINED BUT STILL VERY SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS. IN SOME INSTANCES THE TWINS ARE DRAWN TOGETHER IN A LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP THAT DEFIES REASON.

Then it isn’t necessary for essence twins to live together?

THE ESSENCE LIKES IT BUT THE PERSONALITY DOES NOT ALWAYS.

What about triplets on the physical plane, and do triplets have a spiritual counterpart?

PHYSICAL TRIPLETS AND OTHER MULTIPLE BIRTHS DO STROKE [sic] CLOSE BONDS THE SAME AS PHYSICAL TWINS. THERE ARE NO ESSENCE TRIPLETS.

Do bonds break when Entities reunite? Is there a process which helps Fragments through?

THERE ARE ALSO CLOSE BONDS BETWEEN REUNITED ENTITIES ON THIS PLANE, AND WE PRESUME THAT THIS CONTINUES AS THE REUNITING PROGRESSES.

Is _____ (her husband) my Twin?

THIS MAN IS NOT YOUR TWIN, BUT WHAT YOU FEEL IS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN PHYSICAL TWINS BEFORE AND THIS BOND DRIVES YOU TOGETHER AGAIN.

Is my Essence Twin in this room?

YOUR ESSENCE TWIN IS NOT IN THIS ROOM, BUT YOU DO HAVE ONE.

Do I know my Essence Twin?

NO.

Have I met mine?

NO.

Do I have an Essence Twin and have I met my Essence Twin?

YES YOU DO, AND YOU HAVE MET THIS TWIN.

Is it _____?

NO.

I feel I have met my Essence Twin. True?

THAT IS VALID.

Is _____ my Essence Twin?

NO.

Will we meet them in this life?

THAT IS THE PLAN.

Have I met mine?

YES, YOU HAVE MET THE TWIN.

Is it _____?

THAT IS VALID.

My Essence Twin is moving. Is there anything left for us to do?

NO. YOUR PATHS WILL CROSS AGAIN.

Does this serve a helpful purpose in going through lives?

IT IS HELPFUL WHEN BOTH ARE SEEKERS. THE HUMAN SPECIES SEEKS CONFIRMATION AND AFFIRMATION. THE HUMAN SPECIES HAS THIS IN COMMON WITH A GREAT NUMBER OF OTHER SPECIES.

Do Twins have something in common?

AGE.

What is my task?

YOUR PRIMARY TASK IS OF COURSE THE SAME AS THE OTHERS, THAT OF AN ATTEMPT TO HEAR THESE WORDS. ALSO, YOU HAVE AGREED TO GIVE OF YOUR CREATIVE ABILITIES, THE GIFT OF COLOR AND DESIGN, AND TO EXPRESS YOURSELF IN THIS MODE.

What is my Center, Moving part of Emotional Center?

WE WOULD AGREE WITH MOVING PART OF INTELLECTUAL CENTER FOR THIS LADY. IT IS TRUE THAT SHE DID SPEND A TUMULTUOUS ADOLESCENCE IN THE EMOTIONAL CENTER, UTILIZING ALL PARTS.

The big picture: Tao, creation, Tao, creation . . . Seems so unglamorous. Seems there is no end point.

ALL OF YOU ARE LOSING SIGHT OF THE EONS THAT LIE BETWEEN THE PHYSICAL PLANE AND EVENTUAL RETURN TO THE TAO, OR TO THE “RECYCLING”. THIS SHOULD BE PARADISE ENOUGH FOR ANY SOUL. ALL THAT IS CREATABLE FLOWS FROM THE TAO, UTILIZING THE MATERIAL THAT HAS EXISTED FOR ALL TIME.

What is the definition of Tao?

THE TAO IS THE ALL, THE CREATIVE FORCE. IT IS EVERYTHING THERE IS.

Why can’t this be done in one lifetime?

IT CAN BE REALIZED, BUT THE REALIZATION DOES NOT MEAN THAT ONE MAY REUNITE WITH THE PRIMEVAL FORCE. THIS REALIZATION HOWEVER MUST OCCUR BEFORE TRANSCENDENCE CAN OCCUR.

Was Milarepa an 0ld soul? Did he shortcut many lifetimes?

WE KNOW OF NO SOUL WHO HAS ACHIEVED TRANSCENDENCE IN ONE LIFETIME. THERE IS INSUFFICIENT STORES OF EXPERIENCE TO DO THIS. THE “WAY OF THE FAKIR” IS NOT A RECOMMENDED PATH FOR YOUR CULTURE. IT IS ONLY RARELY SUCCESSFUL, AND REQUIRES MORE OF ITS PROPONENT THAN IS NECESSARY. THIS IS SUCCESSFUL IN ACCELERATING.

SRG on Milarepa?

THIS MAN WAS AT THAT TIME A SIXTH LEVEL OLD PRIEST, YES, A STOIC IN ACCEPTANCE, AND YES, MOVING CENTERED, IN THE PASSION MODE.

First students of Milarepa — were they on the astral plane?

NOT STUDENTS, BUT INTERESTED OBSERVERS.

Was that his last life?

THAT WAS THE LAST TIME HE WAS ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, YES.

Have any Entities reunited with the Tao?

THE TAO HAS EXISTED ALWAYS. YES, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY, COUNTLESS IN FACT, CYCLES.

Maybe we have done this countless times.

AT A DATE IN THE PAST THAT IS UNUTTERABLE IN YOUR LANGUAGE.

SRG on _____ (grandson): Scholar, Moving Centered, Mature or Old Artisan, Acceptance, Stubbornness?

THIS LITTLE BOY IS A FIFTH LEVEL MATURE SAGE IN ACCEPTANCE. HE IS AN IDEALIST; RIGHT NOW, MOSTLY INTELLECTUALLY CENTERED.

Should I tell him? Would his parents understand?

PROBABLY NOT, BUT IS THAT IMPORTANT? HE CAN UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR DISCRETION.

Our discussion of the Tao lead no place. We can’t perceive this. Maybe we can begin to comprehend when astral traveling. We can feel the love . . .

THAT WHICH WE CALL FOR YOU “AGAPE” IS THE POSITIVE FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE. THIS IS THE ONLY POSITIVE FORCE. ALL OTHER POSITIVE EMOTIONS OR ENERGY SOURCES ARE BORNE OF THIS.

Do people in the Repression Mode not feel agape?

THEY DO NOT ORDINARILY ALLOW THEMSELVES THIS, YOU ARE RIGHT.

_____ thinks Observation Mode keeps her from feeling agape. Comment?

ALL OF THESE MODES CAN BE USED TO VARYING DEGREES TO PREVENT THE ACCEPTANCE OF AGAPE; IN PARTICULAR: REPRESSION, CAUTION, PERSEVERANCE, AND OBSERVATION; BUT THE POWERFUL MODES CAN BE ALSO USED TO STARTLING EFFECTIVENESS. MANY SOULS WHO CHOOSE TOO NEUTRAL A COMPOSITE FOR A RESTING CYCLE FIND THEMSELVES IN A POSITION OF BEING UNABLE TO REACT APPROPRIATELY. THIS SOMETIMES BRINGS THEM TO THE NEGATIVE ATTENTION OF THOSE AROUND. THEN IF THEY MEET WITH A TEACHING THEY CAN SOMETIMES BE SHOCKED OUT OF THEIR STIFLING NEUTRALITY.

Is agape the prime energy for faith healing?

IT IS CERTAINLY THE FORCE THAT MAKES IT EFFECTIVE.

The Repression Mode causes a person to search compellingly. Observation and Caution would not push you, and might even delay the process. Can the Repression Mode be used to find agape?

WE WOULD AMEND THAT TO SAY THAT THE REPRESSION CAN CERTAINLY BE USED FOR THE IMPETUS TO PROPEL A SOUL FORWARD. THE SADNESS OF REPRESSION IS A POWERFUL MOTIVE FOR SEEKING A TEACHING.

Is _____ going from the Goal of Growth to Submission?

THERE IS AN INDICATION THAT HE WISHES TO, BUT HE IS AT SOME DISTANCE FROM THIS YET.

If you go around looking loving, then people think you are crazy! Twinning involves responsibilities. Should I do anything about my twin?

THERE ARE NO RESPONSIBILITIES, BUT USUALLY THERE IS A STRONG ENOUGH PULL SO THAT THE TWINS, ONCE REUNITED, WILL GO ALONG TOGETHER AND PURSUE A SIMILAR PATH IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.

How can you differentiate between twin soul attraction and infatuation?

THIS IS A DANGER, OF COURSE, BUT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TWINS PERSEVERE THROUGH TRIALS NOT USUALLY WEATHERED BY THOSE ATTRACTED TO EACH OTHER’S PERSONALITIES. ALSO, THE BOND WITHSTANDS LONG SEPARATIONS AND [does] NOT [have] MANY SETBACKS. IT IS CERTAINLY NOT ROMANTIC, AND EVEN THOUGH THE TWINS ARE OF OPPOSITE GENDER, THEY OFTEN CHOOSE ANOTHER AS A MATE BECAUSE OF ALL THE USUAL MAYA, BUT NOT QUITE LEAVING THE TWIN STRANDED.

Is my karmic ribbon created or burned in my relationship with _____?

NO, A SEQUENCE WAS PLAYED OUT. IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME. THERE IS FATIGUE HERE NOW. PERHAPS AT A SMALLER SESSION.
