Subject: List Lurker Love

Way to go, Lynne! (re: your responses to Dr. Damasco)

I'm really impressed by the Michael Teachings Lurkers. It seems as though whenever one of you quiet folks posts a message to the list I feel affirmed and "Right On!" and "Yeah!" and "Way to go!". I'm really glad you all are a part of this list.

Even though I do not know you all yet I still deeply feel your that you lurker folks are part of my Michael Teachings family. I can, more and more, feel your loving energies quietly participating via your reading and thinking about the Michael List Postings.

I love you all just as much as I love us non-lurkers.

I've got a little stinging behind my eyebones as I write this.

Happy Scholar sez: "It's really OK for Ken to be a happy little crybaby."

Geez, is this what AGAPE is? Man... I love it.

Would you believe... I haven't even sent this post yet, and I can feel your responses around me. Thanks much, you all.

Peace and Light to You and Yours,

My Reply :

Dear Lon,

        You will agree with me if there is an error done in the computer. Unfortunately, this material was intended to Goddess and Spirit list. If ever the materials find its place to your home please delete. We have not reach a degree of machine perfection and from time to time we have this problem . Spiritweb have its own machine problem.

        I will try to rewrite the program so this problem be prevented. I will make sure that you will not receive any posting relevant or irrelevant.

        I understand your requirements with the list. The list is a pagan list advocating, Taoism, Hinduism, Atheism, etc. The michael your are talking about is a discarnate soul finding to express himself in the physical plane. This is not the Michael of Holy Bible nor the Michael of Urantia Book. Many new members were at a lost because list members were talking about a different michael. I suggests that appropiate title and the word Michael be replaced in order to prevent misrepresentation and confusion.

        Religion is an institution. The name Michael is associated with the Michael of the Holy Bible and Urantia Book. It is always associated with christian religion. Never in Taoism or Hinduism, or paganism. The name Michael, as the people thought is a christian Michael. Please make a clarification in your list info. Else, you are deceiving new members.

        I did not preach or proselyte. I just posted an information and I get an insult. If this could happen to me it could happen to anybody. I didn't participate in the discussion. I know through your low vibration, you are something else. You may continue in what you are doing and do not count on me. It is my prerogatives if I will participate or not. If I will subscribe or unsubscribe. This is a free planet. I want freedom as you do. Please respect my decision.

        I do not want to sensationalized this differences. Please do not use the mail for public. ( You force me by being unfair.)

        In the future, if we cross our path, I will face you. Name the forum, the place and the topic.

        Very truly yours, Dr. E.L.Damasco

From: John C
Subject: Hindu

It seems to me the Michael Teaching is very similar to Hinduism. Hindu focuses
on knowing atman (our true nature) as a path to a higher level of being. This
seems to correspond with our efforts to get into our positive poles. Or, more
generally, just knowing more about ourselves through knowing our overleaves.

And the caste system is certainly similar to the Michael Teaching's "roles."

This is kind of an academic observation since it is not really something that
can be used for growth or better functioning in the world, or service to
others. Still, my mind works this way, so I figure I might as well go ahead
and put this out there.

Socrates and Plato were also definitely tapped into these teachings. All that
stuff about philosopher-kings - read: pick an old soul to lead you. And of
course there was Ouspenksy and Gurijieff (sp sp).

Back into modern times, some channeled teachings I've been working with also
seem to be very Hindu in that they also focus on knowing and being the soul.
These teachings, from Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, also employ the help of
higher plane "beings." This seems similar to HIndu's use of many deities.

I've been told that Sanaya and Duane are channeling causal plane entities,
which is of course where the Michaels hang their hats. So I'm wondering if
these teachings, which have similarities, are similar because they are coming
from the same place. Or if they are similar only because true personality and
essence focusing offer a good practical path for humans.

There are other teachings or religions that offer different advice. Or, I
should say, focus on different areas. The Chinese religions focused on social
relationships. The middle-eastern Judeo -Christian-Islam strain is concerned
mostly with the outer world (Man shall have dominion over the animals...). The
shamanistic practices are concerned with increasing personal power and
personal use of energy. Hindu and Buddhism, from India, both address the
ultimate nature of reality, which they relate to the inner self and its
development (thus the focus on the self).

So, why different teachings in different places? What is the story of the
Michael Teachings through time? What was its role in ancient Egypt? Are there
other types of teachings coming from the causal plane?

Wouldn't it be great to snap in all the pieces in the jigsaw puzzle?
Love, John C.

    One of JP's channelings, I believe, said that in ancient times Michael
was thought of as the sun god! They said we can handle that and proceeded
to give helpful information.

Hi,
    I remember I once asked a Michael channel what activity for me is true
rest? To understand Michael's reaction it must be understood that up to
that time I had had a fairly low stress life. Michael started laughing and
said ...of all the people to ask that question. I was a little annoyed at
the time but later thought it was funny. That Michael channel lived in a
another city and did not know me personally.
    While getting things from channelers they could not possibly know has
not been necessary for me to believe channeling is real it is fun for me
when it happens. I even felt it was in poor taste to test them but I
remember Michael saying through one channel that they didn't mind.

Subject: re: the Hindu system

FWIW, I sense that the caste system in the Hindu world was very much the
same information coming through that we have gotten again as information
about roles through Michael. When it came through that time, it just got
distorted and used in economic and political ways. People who were in power
tried to use it to stay in power rather than using the information in a way
to empower everyone.

I think at this time that old hierarchical approach is giving way to seeing
ourselves as one body and seeing each role as playing a necessary part
within the whole. At this time we are also understanding ourselves to be
whole within ourselves as well. As a seed is whole. And a seedling is
whole, and a tree at any stage can easily be seen to be whole. So are we.
And at the same time interwoven and playing a part within our entity, our
cadre, and our world.

Best to all, Brin

According to Michael, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Taoism, were
founded because of an Infinite Soul. And Infinite Soul was here to tell us
about the Tao. I would say that they must be similar, otherwise there
would be different Taos. :-) Then again, there is the matter of how much
of the original teaching are intact in our present literature.

If you look at it from the perspective of Hindu, you would see similarities
there. If I see it from the perspective of ancient Greek philosophy of
"Know Thyself", I would say that it is exactly the same thing. If you
would just glance through Tao Te Ching, you would probably say the same
thing over and over again.

If only in appearance.

For the major part of my [relatively short] life, my mind works just like
that way, too. Being born in Singapore has the advantage (I wonder if that
was the reason I chose to be born here) of coming into close contacts
philosophies and religions of the world. That Singapore is now being
developed into a major "hub" in terms of commerce and information of the
world encourage the "meeting" of cultures even more.

It was until about 2 or 3 years ago that "the way my mind works" slowly
took a turn.

Socrates was a Transcendental Soul, according to Michael. I wonder if
Transcendental Soul energy is just as intense as Infinite Soul energy? Any
channelers would like to ask Michael about this? My knowledge of
life-history of those 4 Transcendental Souls are limited, but I think they
did not die "a natural death", right? Was that because the Transcendental
Soul energy too intense to handle for long term?

Maybe what the Hindus call "deities" are those higher planes beings? But
that is where the Baby Soul characteristic comes in (as is obvious in all
the ancient and major religions being introduced into a world of Baby Souls
in majority), where calling higher plane beings as superior or in position
of authority is concerned.

In the spirit of Michael's Teaching, it is a matter of choice. :-) The
choice to see this as a "good practical path", or pick any path. If what
Michael says was true, we grow spiritually no matter what we do -- it is
inevitable. That our Essence will always learn from what we do here,
whether we are aware of what we are doing, or not (enlighten or not). I
suppose the only difference is the speed of spiritual growth. Even that,
Essence is eternally patient, so "speed" is also not a significant factor.

Well, I would like to ask what "Chinese religions" you were referring to.
Chinese traditions, and superstition systems seem to encourage building
better social relationships. But there is only one Chinese religion,
Taoism, that consist of any system and structure enough to be labeled a
religion. Buddhism was in China and Chinese tradition for a long time, so
it also have a heavy influence in Chinese culture and tradition, but it was
not Chinese in origin.

My "jigsaw puzzle" also include their structure of heaven and hell, of
reincarnation, of "higher plane beings" and deities, etc. And no, they
don't mix at all. When I came across Michael's Teachings, much of these
confusion were cleared. That was one of the reasons that, when I found
this Teaching, I thought "I found the answer to the universe". :-)

Well, needless to say, I was wrong. I also realize since then, that these
"structures", "pieces of jigsaw puzzles" are not really important. They
may be fun to play around, certainly a tickle to the intellectural and
reasoning centers of the brain, but do not really offer anything unless you
personally practise a system (whether of any of the religions, or of any
channeled material, or a "partially pieced up jigsaw puzzle" of your
creation). It will always remain a "tickle to the intellectual and
reasoning centers of the brain".

Regards.

Dear Michael Listers,

Below please find my responses to Dr. Damasco's letter to me regarding my responses to his ISIS post/publication. I do not include his words because he wanted them private to me. However... my responses are to him and to you all since in one of his comments he insults and demeans the whole list.

I have not mutilated your email. Addressing the points that you published is a common way to respond to postings to an Internet List.

I neither take, nor desire, any credit whatsoever for your words.

The Michael disussion list is a list open to the public. There are many ways to reply to postings to a list of this type. One of the ways to reply is to quote the author of a post by breaking the post into relevant sections, and adding one's own comments after each section.

The lines of the quoted parts will be preceded at the far left by a ">" or some other symbol. The responses will "not" have that symbol. This way you can differentiate between the original author and someone's response to the author.

It is not an act of bastardization. On a public list I do not need your authorization. And I repeat... I did not change your material... I commented on it. That's what this list is for.

You can not sue me for quoting you to the same list that you posted to. The Michael list is for postings and sharings, not for publishing. If you do not wish to be quoted... then keep your writings off of the list. This is a medium for communication. It is not a medium for publishing. The two things are entirely different.

Wrong on all accounts. If the Michael List is not to your liking then, please I beg of you, stop trying to convert/proselytize us. Please check out our understandings, and maybe compare them with yours, before you put us down as pagans, etc.

By the way: I am a student of the big beautiful blue Urantia Book, and I am a friend of Michael of Nebadon.

There are many many discarnates called Michael. Not just from your holy bible or from the Urantia Book.

It seems to me that you have been wonderfully gifted with a wonderful experience of higher knowledge and wisdom. Please use/wield this understanding with gentleness and consideration and respect for your readers. Especially when trying to communicate in a language foreign to you.

This harsh letter to me is an indication of your need to learn some communication skills.

Since you chose this to be a "Private" email I will not post your unpleasant message to the Michael Teachings List, although I am tempted to post only my responses.

It is I who forgive you for your intrusive zealotry. Please help us, not bang us in the head with your intrusiveness and your threats. We are trying our best to be as pleasant and forgiving as we can.

Back off a little (well maybe a lot), and please learn more about the Michael List before you start shooting at us.

Subject: RE: Truth about ERNIE

ERNIE,

This whole thing could have been avoided if you hadn't PRESUMED this "Michael" to be "yours". It states quite clearly in the description of the list where this Michael comes from.

It was your mistake. No one else's.

But in the tradition of what you call CHRISTIANITY, the hideous, old, angry BLAME game is being perpetuated by you.

Based on the defensiveness of your beliefs, the impact of differences on your psyche, and the intensity of your self-righteousness, I have seen no "lower vibration" on the list before this.

Your "evidence" was pointless as we do not find correlation between our perceptions and others to be offensive. Though your beliefs might be exclusive and judgmental, many Michael Students find this Teaching refreshing since it claims to be no more powerful than any one other person's own truths. It encourages recognition of everyone as vital, creative, and contributing... If you choose. That includes you.

By the way, the name Michael is just a name. It is not patented, Trademarked, or "owned" by any book or religion. But, to be consistent with your beliefs, I'm sure it is a grand experience to stand on your box and shout to the world a challenge over something so trivial and pointless in order to assert your imposition.

ROCK ON! Get it out of your system.

Though I am annoyed, I still think it's a great thing to have you on this planet to share your version of light (?), truth (?), and hope (?). Enjoy yourself, find security in your beliefs, and trust in your life. No one is going to take them away from you just because they don't agree. And more importantly, your beliefs are just as valid even if no one else believes them. There is no need to recruit or punish in order to justify or maintain your reality.

Be good.

Subject: reservation/passion

Ott.,

Thank you for all the flatery and love. My heart is spoken for in this lifetime but if my wife makes one mistake I'm hoppin' right over to your house (if you'll have me).

Dr. Domasco,

Welcome! I see you are stimulating much discussion and love. Thank you for adding such passion to our conversations on the Universe. I hope that you speak kindly as your heart shows because I think that you have a lot of good things to teach and a lot of good things to learn, as myself.

Ken and Lynne,

I agree with what you were telling Dr. Domasco.

I must elaborate that when I am trapped in the negative pole of fear it is not as easy for me as just chosing love and joy because when I'm trapped in it I don't believe it. The only thing I can believe is what is in front of me. When I accept the pain for what it is then I seem to go into true assimilation. It takes forever. The longer I look at the clock the more impatient I get. But if I can distract myself from the martyrdom I am then surprised with all the zealousness and revelation so common to evangelists. Now at this point I'm very tempted to go into a priest-on-a-mission mode (aka PASSION).

I do best if I remember not to take the reigns and let the driver that showed up do the guiding. The only safe driving I do is driving back to Tao. Everytime I took my own joy-ride I got killed and killed others with me (karma). Yes I know it's OK. I only expanded the Universe with more experiences.

I am proud to be a Creator in the likeness of the big US who created me. Right now the only thing I want to create is my sure path home. I need to be inspired to find this path. I need to be inspired everytime I stray from this path. That inspiration is resignation of my ego and a passion for Tao.

I think that Dr. Damasco reminds me of a passion I once had and miss. If we continue our discussions (which are going beautifully) he might get that we really do appreciate having the good doctor around and that we all will gain in passion of Tao and he in reservation of self. In other words we all know that God's not just a screamer. Nor is God just a brow-beater. God is everything that we want. God is all things good and bad and may we find that magic distraction that alows us to step back and see the great generator that good and bad are.

Love always,

Dan

And NOW, after laying down the "law" and establishing my "boundaries", learning the value of Discrimination (my polar nemesis), I think my next mate may have to crawl through a maze of barbed-wire lovin' to get my lil' cutie pie heart.

Hey, all I know is dammit, I'M WORTH IT! Even my ex's are still hangin' around! My children... nowadays.

ANY way...

Subject: Role Validation?

There's an intriguing passage in Jane Robert's "Unknown Reality - V. 2" where Seth is discussing "psychic familes." These would be collectives that share similar interests and goals. At first I thought he was addressing what could be construed as the themes some of our various entities in the Michael system embrace, but as I continued to read, these "families" began to look like the roles from the Michael teachings. Now Seth describes NINE familes of consciousness, but with a leap of logic, I could place seven of them into Michael's categories of roles. Below I will present the actual (somewhat abridged) quotes from Seth and you can see for yourself if you can discern any correlation between the two teachings. If there is one, it would be another exciting validation to ponder.

SETH'S FAMILIES

SUMARI (Artisan) <----Dave's opinion
ILDA (Sage)
GRAMADA (King)
SUMAFI (Scholar)
ZULI (Warrior)
VOLD (Priest)
TUMOLD (Server)

SUMARI (Artisan?) - To provide the cultural, spiritual, and artistic heritage for the species.

"Sumari are practical in that they bring creative visions into physical reality, and try to live their lives accordingly. They are initiators, yet they make little attempt to preserve organizations. The Sumari abilities are highly creative ones. They are given to art, but in the broadest sense, they try to make an "art" of living, for example.
They are not happy on assembly lines. They like to play with details -- or use them for creative purposes. They often go from one job or profession to another for that reason. Generally, the Sumari have the capacity to reach out emotionally to others and emphathize. To some extent this feeling for humanity often serves as an impetus for creative work. Many of them also have a mystical sense of connection with nature. At the same time they can be relative isolationists, wanting to do their (creative) work in solitude. "

ILDA (Sage?) - To spread and exchange ideas.

"This family is composed of the "exchangers." They deal primarily in the great play of exchange and interchange of ideas, products, social and political concepts. They are travelers, carrying with them the ideas of one country to another, mixing cultures, religions, attitudes, political structures. Throughout the ages they have served as the spreaders of ideas, the assimilators. These are a lively, talkative, imaginative, usually likeable group of people. They are interested in the outsides of things, social mores, the marketplace, current popular religions or political ideas. They spread these from place to place. They are the seed-carriers, both literally and figuratively. A good many salesmen belong in this category. (Yet) they can be "con men" selling products supposed to have miraculous values, blinding the local populace with their airs.

GRAMADA (King?) - To found social systems.

"Specializes in organization. Sometimes its members follow immediately after a revolutionary social change. Their organizational tendencies are expressed in any area of life, however. They are behind art schools, for instance, though they may not be artistic themselves. They may set up colleges, although they may or may not be scholars. The founders of giant businesses often belong to this family, as do some politicians and statesmen. They know how to put other people's ideas together. They are often the founders of social systems. In most cases, your hospitals, schools, religions, as organizations, are initiated by and frequently maintained by this group. They are organiziers of energy, directed toward effective social structure. They usually set up fairly stable, fairly reasonable governments, schools, fraternities, yet they do not always initiate the ideas behind those structures.

SUMAFI (Scholar?) - To transmit "originality" through teaching.

This group often deals with teaching. They may be gifted in any field, but their primary interest is in passing on their knowledge or that of others. They are usually traditionalists, therefore, although they may be brilliant. In the Middle Ages they faithfully copied manuscripts. They are custodians in a way. Again, there are infinite variations. Many music or art teachers belong in this category, where the arts are taught with a love of excellence, a stress upon technique -- into which the artist, who is often a Sumari (although not always) can put his or her creativity.

ZULI (Warrior?) - To serve as physical, athletic models.

This group is involved mainly with the fulfillment of bodily activity. These are the athletes. In whatever field, they devote themselves to perfecting the capacities of the body, which in others usually lies latent. The vitality of creaturehood is demonstrated through the beauty, speed, elegance, and performance of the body itself. To some extent these people are perfectionists, and in their activities there are always hints of "super" achievement, as if physically the species tries to go beyond itself. The members of this group deal, then, in performance. They are physical doers. They are also lovers of beauty as it is corporally expressed. Historically, they often appeared at the beginnings of civilizations, where direct physical manipulation within the environment was of supreme importance.

TUMOLD (Server?) - To heal, regardless of individual occupations

This family is primarily devoted to healing. This does not mean that these people may not be creative, or organizers, or teachers, but the primary slant of their consciousness will be directed to healing. You might find them as doctors and nurses, while not hospital administrators. However, they may be psychics, social workers, psychologists, artists, or in the religions. They may work in flower shops. They may work on assembly lines, for that matter, but if so they will be healers by intent or temperment.

VOLD (Priest?) - To reform the status quo.

These people are primarily reformers. In conventional terms they may appear to be great activists and revolutionaries, or they may seem to be impractical dreamers. They will be possessed by an idea of change and alteration, and will feel, at least, driven or compelled to make that idea a reality. They perform a very creative service as a rule, for social and political organizations can often become stagnant, and no longer serve the purposes of the large masses of people involved. Members of this family may also initiate religious revolutions, of course. As a rule, however, they have one purpose in mind: to change the status quo in whatever the area of primary interest."

Subject: Dr. Damasco

Hi all,

Adding my two cents worth of opinion and perspective to this very lively thread. My primary bias for the following remarks is my "synthesis process" (cardinal expression) overleaves: goal of acceptance, fifth level, old age, higher intellectual center.

I have been watching the unfolding of the episode with the Philippine Dr., but I am not caught up in it the way some of you seem to be. Reason is, I was deeply involved in a fundamentalist Christian sect for twenty years before being involved in "New Age" metaphysics for the last nearly twenty year. So, I have "been there and done that." Therefore I think I understand where Dr. Damasco is coming from more than most would. With a reinterpretation of words and a change of viewpoint, there is actually very little profound difference between the two factions. That is partly why I suggested you please be kind to Dr. Damasco, and why I would suggest to Dr. Damasco to likewise please be kind to us (with the usual Michael appendage, "if you so choose").

Over the years it has become increasingly obvious to me that most of the differences between the two factions are either semantic in nature (having to do with the definitions of their terms) or perspective in nature (having to do with the ordinal vs. cardinal point of view). At one time I fancied myself to be a bit of a Bible scholar, and my first attempt at writing a book was about Bible chronology and the Hebrew calendar. At any rate, I have not cracked the Bible much in the last twenty years, but every now and then I tumble to a realization that a particular Biblical verse has thus and such "metaphysical" meaning whereas it can also be given thus and such "fundamentalist" meaning. The founder of the Unity Christian church has written a lengthy book called the "Metaphysical Bible Dictionary," wherein he has catalogued exactly this kind of reinterpretation. It seems to me there are strata of understanding where things that are "true" (or "good") from one point of view are "false" (or "evil") from another point of view, and things that appear contradictory from one point of view are reconciled from another point of view. The cosmos is like that. In a cosmos derived from "consciousness", the cosmos IS "consciousness" making "distinctions" and assuming a "point of view" with respect to the distinction-- and nothing else. And the conscious Source of it all? -- quoting the Bible now -- "All is of God. All is in God. All is for God." I am not yet in the state of consciousness where there is no true or false or good or evil (positive vs. negative poles, chief feature vs. role, essence vs. ego, etc.) FOR ME -- I still grapple with these issues in my movement toward personal integrity in this lifetime. But I do not grapple much with the apparent dichotomy between fundamentalist Christianity and the New Age. Eventually, I would like to think that I could say what Gandhi said, "I am a Christian and a Jew and a Muslim and a Hindu and a Buddhist" -- and a New Ager. Although I hasten to add that I think there is just as much "baloney" in the New Age movement as there is in the Fundamentalist Christian movement. But then I hasten to add, it is "baloney" from MY point of view, and I acknowledge that it is NOT baloney from the point of view of the people who are involved (identified with) those factions as they move toward their integrity in the grand cosmic scheme of things.

We tend to think that our point of view is God's point of view. One of the biggest "errors" we commit is to confuse the strata of "personal truth" with "world truth" and/or "cosmic truth". (You will all no doubt recognize these as Michaelian terms.) Quoting the Bible again, "God sees not as man sees." As I have said before and will say again, the concept of "strata" (Threeness) is the "answer" to a lot of "questions" (Twoness). Gurdjieff called this the "Law Of Three". Michael called it "completing the monad". Our development as fragments consists of reconciling contradictions, "dialoguing" till we speak a "monologue" at the next higher strata. This might consist of reconciling the differences between Christian perceptions and metaphysical perceptions on the physical plane, or king fragments and warrior fragments on the astral plane. In any case, the discussion initiated by Dr. D. seems to be provoking many insights.

Phil

PS: Dr D. mentions Urantia and Theosophy. I have read a little of the Urantia book over the years and it never did grab me. Seems to me that Michael and Theosophy have a lot in common, and I often wonder what the connection is.

I hope this "Doctor" is off the Michael Teachings List once and for all, but just in case he still reads this, here is my response.

Before I go into more detailed responses, I would like to state that this "Doctor" has a long way to learn about the true meaning of humility. The reason I say this is because he displays a monumental idol of self-importance and exhausts his energy defending it.

After reading what Lori wrote, I do not see anything that is fair, or unfair. Lori was making a statement, not an apology, or defense, despite what you wrote to her. And after reading what you wrote to her, I find yourself in self-contradictory terms almost throughout the whole thing. Lori happens to be very nice not to point them out to you (either in private or in public) in her reply. In this post, I will point out some of them. The self-contradictions have nothing to do with whatever you are preaching, but everything to do with what you claim you are.

True enough. It is also possible for you to check your membership account and remove yourself from the Michael's Teachings List. Have you done so yet? From this particular post of yours, it seems that you have not. But in this very same post, you are putting the blame on SpiritWeb site (both computer and operators). Time to learn to be responsible for your own actions -- do something, rather than placing blames.

Do, or do not. There is no try.

 

> I understand your requirements with the list. The list

Nope. You have still misunderstood. It also seems that you have not bothered to really understand what Michael's Teachings is about. By itself, there is nothing wrong about not wanting to understand. But your above statement had already put a erroneous verdict on what Michael's Teaching is. Talk about being unfair, you are behaving exactly that way. Are you, then, in any position to say others are being unfair towards you?

 

>The michael your are talking about is a discarnate soul finding
>to express himself in the physical plane.

 

Wrong again, though this time it is slightly closer to truth. I would still say, close, but no cigar. I could go on to give you a better descriptions (or definition), but knowing that you are not interested, I will just proceed onwards.

 

>This is not the Michael

>members were at a lost because list members were talking

>and confusion.

 

No, the Michael's Teachings has nothing to do with St Michael, or Archangel Michael of Bibie or Urantia Book. On the other hand, this is something to do with the mailing list descriptions provided on SpiritWeb. The name, Michael, is such a common name that you cannot demand every Michael in the world to change their names simply because they are not the Saint Michael. Likewise, you are not in any position of authority to even suggest others to change their names for your own sake of clarity.

 

> Religion is an institution. The name Michael is associated
>with the Michael of the Holy Bible and Urantia Book.

 

Yes it is associated, but not exclusively so.

 

>It is always associated with christian religion.

 

Not so. I have several colleagues named Michael, and they are not associated with Christianity.

 

>Never in Taoism or Hinduism, or paganism. The name Michael, as the people
>thought is a christian Michael. Please make a clarification in your list info. Else,
>you are deceiving new members.

 

Such a "deception" only entails a certain initial confusion that can be easily clarified by members themselves. It is not a sin punishable by eternal damnation.

 

> I did not preach or proselyte. I just posted an information
>and I get an insult.

 

It does seem that you have no idea what "posting information" means. I would suggest you take time out and watch a movie on military operations. You will know what it means by "passing information" and "preach/proselyte". The difference is in the choice of words (the manner). What you have been doing on this list IS preaching, and proselytizing. It does not matter whether what "information you passed" is "real truth" or not. It is your manner that makes the difference. If you wonder what type of manner you should adopt, my suggestion is to seek help with a professional psychiatrist. The least the visit would help may be on your self-importance.

 

>If this could happen to me it could happen to anybody.

 

So far, in my experience in the Michael Teaching List, you are the first example.

 

>I didn't participate in the discussion.

 

That is one of the main source of your problems -- you don't listen. I can go on to say plenty of "as if"s, as if you know it all, as if you are the ultimate authority, a representative of God, as if your words is the ultimate truth, as if etc. But all the "as if"s will only make me sound petty. You will have to figure out why you are not listening.

 

>I know through your low vibration, you are something else.

 

Here, I am really laughing out loud!! hahahaha... I don't think you have a clear idea of "vibration", yet.

 

>You may continue in what you are doing and do not count on me. It is my prerogatives
>if I will participate or not. If I will subscribe or unsubscribe. This is
>a free planet. I want freedom as you do. Please respect my decision.

 

Lori was not forcing you off. I am not, either. I just hope you would leave, because I do not pretend to be able to change your ways/manner/attitude to be of any real benefit to this list.

 

> I do not want to sensationalized this differences. Please
>do not use the mail for public. ( You force me by being unfair.)

 

Heh, look who's talking.

 

> In the future, if we cross our path, I will face you. Name
>the forum, the place and the topic.

 

For anyone who is truly free, there is nothing to defend. There are plenty of reasons, but I will only say, in your context as a Christian, that defending Christianity is like defending that Almighty God -- if the God is really almighty, He/She can do the defending all by Himself/Herself. "Defending Christianity" is just a self-deception, for hiding the truth -- defending self-importance.

And this self-importance is not quite the same as self-esteem. Self-esteem has everything to do with confidence, while self-importance has everything to do with an illusive image constructed to represent "self".

What I am about to comment has no doubt passed through (and "by"? <g>) many's mind on this list. I may be duplicating some others' words but what the heck, I haven't written much lately... ;->

Aren't everything a matter of different interpretations and choices of words? :-) Even different perceptions? Isn't that part of the fun of being here? You have experienced 2 factions in this life time, (and more to come?) and I have experienced (only briefly, not in-depth like you) just a bit more than 3 different factions. And yes, more often than not, it's more about different interpretations, hence different theology, imaginations behind the interpretations, etc. etc. Thus far, I have written only 2 posts here with regard to this Dr. D, and in both posts I did not mention, even once, about "who is right"... well, perhaps a little, somewhere? The main points that I made has been about his own personality [flaws] as reflected by his own words. I guess we generally are all tolerant enough to accept a fundamentalist Christian views (here or anywhere?), but what really ticks us off is the attitude of preaching, and of being talked AT. The same can be said of several other responses I read.

Thus my comment is just that -- it doesn't seem to be a point of "whose view is right"... except, perhaps, the case of Dr. D. himself. I dare say one of the elements of Michael's Teachings that attracts us so is this lack of right/wrong polarity. At least it's the case for me. It's more an issue of attitudes, mannerism, and choice of words (aren't they all the same thing?). :-)

You can ask Rene Mueller, the owner of Spiritweb, to prove it if you don't believe me, that I cannot remove e-mails posted to the list. I can ask him to do it, and so far, I have only done that to one post from last year, from a woman who asked me to remove her post that she wrote, because of the personal nature of its content. I'll do that for any author who asks me to remove their own post.

As for your other comments on who Michael is, you can read the list description and find out, I think it's pretty clear....Anyway, Michael is a pretty common name in the English language.

Dave, I thought your ideas on the correlations of Michael's roles and Seth's descriptions were really great. I would only switch the roles of Warrior and King, since it seems to me that the warriors are the ones building things, and the description of the athletes sounded more like Kings because they seemed to be wanting to master whatever they did. Well, just my opinion! BTW: I think Gurdjieff also had 9 descriptions, from what I'd heard.

Subject: seven types

Hi Dave and y'all,

For your information, Theosophy also has seven fundamental personality types. (In fact, they are as big on sevenness as Michael is.) Their names are Ruler (king?), Teacher (priest?), Philanthropist (server?), Artist (sage?), Scientist (scholar?), Devotee (warrior?), and Craftsman (artisan?). I only saw the names listed in one book I read (published in 1956) and I did not pursue a full description in other Theosophical texts, so my correlation is tentative. There are so many similarities between Michael and Theosophy that I have often wondered what the connection was - other than the connection that truth is truth whoever the messenger might be.

Lori,
      thank you for posting the Maya poem. I think all women should have a copy of that in a place where they can see it everyday--hmm, maybe I'll put mine on the box where I keep all the bills ;)
      Anyway, I also wanted to say that as a "lurker" and new member, I am tired of the on-going saga with Dr. Damasco and I miss reading the postings that I joined for in the first place. I agree with the wise and often scathing retorts from the veterans on the list. Everyone has a right to their beliefs but I think that the good doctor (as well as the rest of us) would be happier if he took his beliefs to a place where he would have more in common with the other members. Do ya think from now on, if he continues, that we could just ignore him and carry on with the Michael discussions? I think we are adding fuel to his fire and he's thriving on it. Maybe if we stop responding he'll take his toys and go home. It's obvious we can't change his mind. It's also obvious that we can't kill him with kindness. So let's just leave him to stew in his own juices and get back to what we're really here for. I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but I love this list and want to get back to Michael and not ernie!

Interesting thought! Seems to be working; look at all the thoughtful and thought-provoking posts one baby soul (gasp! dare I be so judgmental?) has brought forth. Of course, then there's Otterly's and Dave's little side thread . . . I won't presume to categorize THAT, just ROFL each time they post.

Irony here: I was not raised in the Christian religion, and vehement and unpleasant proselytizing by people who never seemed to me to be actually LIVING the precepts they preached only led me to reject the whole thing early on. Michael's explanation of Jesus as the Infinite Soul, teaching agape from the Messianic plane, has allowed me to "accept Jesus" in a way that would have been impossible for me before I found these teachings.

Of course, I "accepted" the Buddha, Lao Tse, and Sri Krishna at the same time, so I guess I'm still a pagan.

Subject: Re: RE: 2012

Dear Jody -- The best explanation of what happens in 2012 (or some nearby other date) that I have heard came from the channeled entity Lazaris, whom I have no great interest in. In the mid-80s I heard a Lazaris talk from 1979 called, I believe, "Message from California Consciousness". He said that the process we are going through is increasing exponentially or asymptotically approaching (like a curve going more and more vertical) a point that would be the end of time as we know it in 2012 or so (I don't recall exactly what description of the timing he gave.)

That would happen as, and because, our future becomes less and less predictable as we move forward. This has also been called shifting from 3rd dimensionality to 4th. We are less and less solidly creating the patterns of the past and expectations that the future will be like the past. In other words, change accelerates and builds on itself. By the end of old-style reality time in 2012 or whenever things would be changing so fast that we would have a very hard time predicting anything even a short time in the future. And so, according to Lazaris, in 2012 or whenever it is, we will reach a point where the 3D limiting realities of the past don't hold us back, so literally anything becomes possible, and therefore the mass conscious expectation of the future goes blank.

Note that this whole idea is a phenomenon in belief systems and consciousness, as opposed to a physics phenomenon -- though our physics belief systems will probably evolve to include that consciousness creates matter and energy and all the laws and phenomena of matter and energy, etc.

Note also that many ancient prophets and many religious systems, as well as channeled material from lots of different sources including extraterrestrials, all have been talking about this point in time happening sometime soon, whenever it exactly is, as if it were a predictable event. I don't know whether it's predictable in the precise way that orbits of heavenly bodies are, or whether it is predictable in a not-so exact way, like the expectation that children reach puberty in a certain age range, or both. The scenario for both is this: imagine that the movements of our solar system and even its galaxy move in grand cycles through fields of different energies of some non- physical sort (like the zodiac) and that we are approaching a known major point where a dimensional shift transformation or rapid evolution happens. Such a point is very highly interesting for all sorts of older souls and higher-plane beings to observe and participate in. So something is going to happen that's very transformational and unlike all history, but no one can know exactly what, and the predictions made have less value each year.

All the best, Ed

Subject: De Lurking

Hi everybody.

I would first like to say, how much I enjoy the discussions on this list. I have laughed, cried, and been enlightened by all of your postings, so I thank you all. I have been lurking for a considerable time and never felt the need to join in, till the good doctor made his appearance felt. I am sure everyone has had enough of this discussion, so please humour me.
As I see things one of the many tasks we need to do is to raise the vibration of the planet. Obviously a good starting point is with ourselves. If the good doctor is, as someone suggested a baby soul then he may be doing exactly what he designed. How else does his soul try to raise his concious vibration if not interacting with us I know this list is to discuss and advance ourselves, with the help of the Michael teachings, if we cannot help raise the vibration of one baby soul who obviously joined this list for a reason, how do we then get into the mainstream (referring to a previous discussion) and help the the many like the good doctor, What then is the Michael teachings all about, if not for us to understand, and pass on all the things that we have learnt.
I know that all of what he is saying seems tedious to us old souls, who would prefer to sit in the lounge chair (I am a third level old sage) because we have been there and done that. For that very reason is it not up to us to help speed up, and raise the vibration, because we have been there and done that.
I realize that this posting may be seen as a judgement also, please forgive me if this is so, as I am still in duality and have not the ability as yet to transpose myself into pure energy and agape.
I again thank you for all the enlightenment I have received on this list, I will now go back to lurking at my retreat in the hills of the Sunshine coast, in sunny Queensland, Australia.

Dear Dr. Damasco:

You have my support when you share your personal inspirational stories. It's hard for me to read your attacks against others on this board as it's hard for me to hear others attack you. I'm suggesting that you take the first mature step and apologize to those you have slandered (maybe rightfully, maybe not). I am sure that you will find that once an apology is given then one will be reciprocated. I think it would be appropriate to begin with Otterly.

 

You are mediums and you use the word channel to make it
palatable to deceive people. The mask of the devil !!! ...

...Otterly, you are utterly example of your discarnate friend !!!

 

Dr. Damasco, please, turn to Matthew 7:1-5 and rejoice. Fill your spirit with the words of Jesus and ask yourself for forgiveness for Jesus has taught us to not judge each other. You are another aspect of Otterly and Otterly you. Do not judge Otterly for you condemn yourself. Love your neighbor like yourself (Because he's another manifestation of the same God to which we are all a part.)

Dr. Damasco, please, remember the story of the Prodigal Son. Consider if you will that I am the Prodigal Son. I'm the bad son who did all the bad things and spent all my money foolishly and returned to my creator not asking for forgiveness but to merely have the scraps off of his table. My Father welcomes me into his arms but it is you (the Good Son) who has a problem with God forgiving the sinner. After all, you did all the right things that you thought were expected of good sons. But God says I (the Bad Son) was lost but is now found. Live with it. The Good Son shall not judge. It is the exclusive task of the father (or the parent, the great parent, the Tao) to judge. and the father says come on home. Dinner's ready.

Dr. Domasco, please, turn to Mathew 25:31-46 and pray with me that we are not the goats for the goats failed to let the Stranger in. The Stranger is God. Jesus says that we are to treat the appearant slightest human being as God. That is the KEY, that MAGIC DOOR to eternal LOVE is loving each other.

I love you Dr. Damasco. I suggest that you love me and every other slightest example of a human being for that is how the passage to God goes. Not by exclusion or ostracism.

Dan

P.S.: The reason why I study the Michael teachings is because Michael explained the Adam and Eve trap of the snake and the tree of knowledge. Remember that the curse of the tree for humankind was that the fruit of the tree alllowed Adam and Eve to now the difference between good and evil. Once they ate the fruit they recognized that they were naked. (Genesis 3:5-7) Ask a Michael student about +/-/=. I'll learn something, too.

and participate at your own risk.
===========================================

Hi Listers,

      I don't mine your character assasination. I know some of you are astral assasins. Your thought form does not work with me. My mission in your list is not to preach, but to reveal the truth of MT list. I will entertain you with facts.

      Messages Yarbro's Book. Michael is a collective of 1050 discarnate soul individuals who finished up their lifetimes on the physical plane and waiting through mediums, bringing information from the life beyond to fuse with host humanity.

      According to Mike entity there are seven main types of persons on the planet. These are the seven essence roles: Artisan-Sage (expressive); Warrior-King (active); Server-Priest (inspirational); and Scholar (assimilative). One keeps the same role throughout the cycle of lives and develops this essence to the mastery level.

      Sit back and read the information.

      In previous info, I have identified the MT list as a pagan list.

      This time who is that entity michael used by the lister and medium.

"6th level Baby Priest, in the Power Mode, with a Goal of Domination, the Attitude of a Cynic, Emotional Part of the Emotional Center, Chief Feature of Arrogance.

"Prior to incarnation he had considered a Goal of Growth, but felt he couldn't move fast enough with that Goal and so chose Domination, feeling the kind of responses these choices would bring from human life at this point in time.

"He chose Power Mode for the same reason.

"His attitude of Cynic was purposely chosen to abrade against ideas other than what he considers to be his truth.

"His emotional centering and emotional part provides him a "huge" fund of energy to keep him on his chosen path...

"especially with a CF of Arrogance which is manifest from a human fear of not being appreciated, which he also knew was going to happen, but no longer realizes at this point in physical time and space.

"His many formal Degrees were his attempts at discovering the "rules" of life during this period of space and time.

"He also knew (pre-incarnationally) that the growth potential of this space and time is greater than almost anywhere else in the galaxy of galaxies. and so chose to incarnate when he did in order to play a catch-up game so to speak.

"His life task is to exercise his overleaves to the fullest extent possible short of causing someone to lethally abrade his physical body. <a Michael chuckle>

"Many on this list have already noticed that his mere existence is giving many fragments practice in tolerance, agape, and especially, first hand (or first email) experience with a Baby soul. Most Old Soul fragments have not personally experienced Baby Soul energies since they themselves were Young souls.

"A great learning opportunity for all involved. Choosing to ask growth-promoting questions of Dr. Damasco as well as just making statements may prove to be very interesting.

Subject: Re: Soul families, Elias or Seth? 2

Dear Dave -- In AOL's New Age boards, in Spirit there's one called "Thoughts of Elias" which, if you go back a few months, has a whole string of posts that someone copied over from Elias's transcripts. They have the same family names as Seth and similar description (I guess, I only know about Seth second hand).

My first thought when I was reading about these is it's a cadre or entity thing, not roles. It sounded more like the subtle flavors of the supposed differences between entity groups. JP's new material (which I posted last fall about) describes the enities of a cadre as being colors from 1 = red up to 7 = violet. Also, Elias said somewhere that everyone present at some session were in one of these families, and that would be unlikely with roles. Nothing in their stuff, the little bit I read, implies anything about roles or overleaves, either. If I had time, I would go deeper into checking out Elias, it looks very good.

Kenneth,

Very enlightening!!!!! Thanks. Now I have one question that has been forming in my brain for a couple of days. It has to do with the "near-death experience". There seems to be a lot of this going on over the last 10 years or so, or maybe just lots more being written about it. I'm curious if Michael might give us some insight in to what this is all about. If the good Dr actually had a NDE as he says and he is a baby soul... is this a phenomena for this level of soul?? I found it interesting when reading Dr Newton's book "The Journey of Your Soul" that I got a sense of validation for not only the Michael Teachings but also a better understanding of what the NDE is about. Please, anyone on the list.... feel free to jump in here and give me your thoughts, ideas or opinions. Something is nudging my brain and you all might help shift what ever is stuck...:) Thanks

Subject: NDEs

Dear Diane -- I would theorize that one's essence is in charge and orchestrates whatever phenomena the personality experiences in the NDE. That would include whatever guides or angels appear and what they communicate. All this is harmoniously coordinated with and by the essence.

I think it would be really interesting to see how the NDE phenomena correlate with soul ages and with roles. I get the impression that the NDE people we hear of most often are priests and often very zealous ones; zealous being the negative pole and fear being involved because the message is something about scary earth changes or social destruction that urgently has to be disseminated to others.

Yep...that was my original thought as well. But the odd thing is that Seth also mentioned that everyone at his session that day were from the same family. This also made me entertain the notion that this would be unlikely in roles, but there's no information as to how large Jane's groups were, so I couldn't toss the idea based on that information. Besides, Seth's families still sound quite similiar to Michael's role description. However, I would have no real argument if they turned out to be entities or cadres. What does bother me is that from what you've related to me about Elias, the transcript sounds almost too identical. I'm wondering if Elias is fradulent, and stealing from some of the lesser-known passages in Jane Robert's books. "Unknown Reality Vol 2" is one of her less popular entires, and not nearly as widely read.

I'm certainly not contesting Ken's overleaves regarding Dr.Damasco, and I have a hunch that they are probably very accurate, but we should not be quick to assume that an interest in religion represents an instant indicator of being a baby soul. Personally, I know an artisan/sage that was channeled as a late level mature, who is just as overzealous as our good doctor, to the point that she changed her name to a biblical one, and cut all ties with her parents because they are heathen. Also, an ex-girlfriend, who was channeled as early old, is currently a born-again Christian.

I felt that the indicator of soul age was more the feeling of wild fear and paranoia that runs through the Dr.s posts. He retaliates when, often, there has been no attack. There is also no emotional content to the information, just rhetoric. My mother is an late mature, born-again, fundamentalist, christian, who "talks" to Jesus (we do NOT use the word channel). She is completely unable to see any other path as valid. The difference between her and the good Dr. is that she will listen, before she rejects opposing views and does so with great love and care, and maintains her views without attacking others'.

Also, re your Elias/Seth information, my mother (talking to Jesus) showed me a list of "gifts of the spirit" that the Lord had given her. This was about 1990. There were seven "gifts"; the gift of "teaching", the gift of "leadership", the gift of "service, the gift of "healing", etc., and I didn't pay a lot of attention at the time. When I read MFM several years later I sat around in shock for awhile when I realized finally where I 'd heard this information before. Heck, mom even had the negative and positive poles listed ( I made her dig all that stuff out in 1996).

So, I know that mom never read Seth or Elias or anything other than her KJV bible [she has developed an affinity for the Edgar Cayce information in the last few years]. I think that these roles are truly, as the Michaels have said, universal truths and available for interpretation and dissemination by which ever entity has the need to do so, when asked. Plagerism is always possible but I think that this comes down to us reading the info and using discernment/validation where it's concerned.

Subject: 2012 AD

Hi gang,

This prophecy thing is another realm of experience where I can say, "been there, done that." That fundamentalist Christian church that I formerly participated in was real big on prophecy. It was fun and exciting at the time to believe that I knew the future. I do not regret it for a moment. They predicted the second coming of Jesus Christ and the beginning of the Millenium for 1975. They predicted a lot of other things based on interpretations of Bible prophecy and chronology that never came to pass. To some extend back in those days I planned my life around those predictions, and I am still experiencing negative consequences from choices made then. For this reason, I tend to roll my eyes and sigh and say, "there they go again" when the subject of prophecy comes up. Now, I admit I have become prejudiced against prophecy because of former negative experiences, but even knowing that I have this bias I still refuse to pay much attentions to predictions from any source -- Biblical, Mayan, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Gordon Michael Scallion, etc. etc. - especially the fear based predictions of the apocalyptic, gloom and doom variety. Michael and Seth both shy away from prophesying of any kind. To me, now, it seems like one of the many enthrallments of maya to get involved in the prophecy thing. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I hasten to add. Maya is a wonderful tool for learning. We usually experience the negative pole of something before we experience the positive pole, on our way to the neutral zone at the next higher strata -- only to get knocked into the negative pole of that strata, etc. etc. on our way back to Tao.

However, another channeled entity - and one that I respect a great deal - "RA" (early eighties vintage), also predicted interesting things for the year 2012, but I did not pay too much attention to it because of my prejudice. It was something about a "harvest" of souls which have reached a certain level of "clarification" in the "ray" (strata) of their spiritual development. It was said that they would graduate from "third density" to "fourth density". If there is any validity to this date and this phenomenon, then in my opinion it correlates with Michael's recent pronouncements on the transition of the planetary consciousness from predominantly young soul (third soul age) perception to predominantly mature soul (fourth soul age) perception. I also vaguely remember seeing speculation somewhere in the Michael community about the appearance of a transcendental soul at this time. Who knows.

The consensus teaching in the perennial philosophy is that if you choose to "be here now", you will experience the least amount of discomfort with respect to past, present and future events. If you choose not to "be here now" - "centered," in the "flow" -- you will experience something else, namely, like careening down the racetrack of life bouncing off the guardrails on both sides. There are advantages and disadvantages to both approaches. Far be it from me to spoil anybody's fun or learning. After all, the entire cosmos of experiential differentiation is a displacement from the absolutely neutral perspective of Tao, the background against which all manifestation appears.

Subject: Elias or Seth? 3

Dear Dave -- At the Elias website they have over 200 lengthy transcripts of taped group sessions. I read one they recommend as a good one to start with. My impression is that the channel is pretty good (and so is the group) and the entity Elias is related to or close to Seth in some way, which I'm sure they explain somewhere but I didn't take the time to look for it. Their point of view sounds pretty similar.

Could be that Elias and Seth are different fragments, or groups of them, of the same entity group, like the different fragments and groups of them that work with Michael channels.

Also, it occurs to me that the Sumari and other named "families" might even be cadres among a group of "student cadres".

All the best, Ed

In a message dated 98-07-29 12:42:27 EDT, you write:

 

Yep...that was my original thought as well. But the odd thing is that Seth
also mentioned that everyone at his session that day were from the same
family. This also made me entertain the notion that this would be unlikely in
roles, but there's no information as to how large Jane's groups were, so I
couldn't toss the idea based on that information. Besides, Seth's families
still sound quite similiar to Michael's role description. However, I would
have no real argument if they turned out to be entities or cadres. What does
bother me is that from what you've related to me about Elias, the transcript
sounds almost too identical. I'm wondering if Elias is fradulent, and
stealing from some of the lesser-known passages in Jane Robert's books.
"Unknown Reality Vol 2" is one of her less popular entires, and not nearly as
widely read.

per Kenneth:

There are more NDE's happening primarily because medical technology and techniques have advanced to the point where maintaining and repairing damaged physical bodies is far advanced from where it used to be. Souls that otherwise would have been lost to the physical are finding that their physical vehicle can be repaired sufficiently for them to re-enter again. Many retain the memory of their NDE, but many also do not.

per Kenneth:
------------
Retaining memory of an NDE is fairly frequent among those whose brain patterns and previous imprinting allow for it. For those whose belief systems normally do not permit such experiences the NDE can be remembered although in a somewhat to very distorted form.

The good doctor did have an NDE, but his memory of it is somewhat distorted by his fundamental beliefs, and still is.

Any soul level or age can have an NDE.

-----

For what it's worth: the tunnel most NDE'ers say they traverse is a short cut through the lower astral level to the middle and upper astral realms. Those NDE'ers that had no tunnel, and no light at the end, have had horrible NDE experiences that went into the lower astral level where the lower astral/emotional energies hang out. This is the living hell that many talk about.

Subject: re: Ernie's overleaves

Another lurker comes forth.

I've been greatly entertained by the Dr. Damasco drama to the point that I've been ROTFL a couple times - the post where Ken replied to invisible comments from the Dr. was as funny as it gets, and the ongoing debate over who owns the name Michael is right up there. (Maybe we should call this the Mike-Teachings list so we don't aggravate the archangels . . .?)

Along with Ken, though, I've been trying to figure the guy out. I was doing it from my own perspective instead of through his overleaves, but here are the impressions I got:

This is a very tiny, embryonic fragment shouting very loud in order to reassure himself of his own power by showing he can disrupt something. I am not at all sure he believes what he is saying because I don't know if he is familiar with the inner feeling of "belief." What's it like when you know inside that something is right? He doesn't understand that question. He is only able, at this stage of his life, to quote outside sources.

I am not sure he knows how to use his intellect as a tool of discovery yet. I think that comes after you learn to use it as a tool of debate by bumping it up against somebody else's intellect. This was all very interesting to me because I hadn't really stopped to try and feel my way into the experience of living at such an embryonic level. There must be a huge sense of confusion masked by a lot of rules and dogma intended to give form to the formless.

The man is not without humor, which is a big credit.

I was trying to figure out what we might say or do to get him to stretch a bit. It came to me that a missing piece might become visible if we asked him who he was. Dr. Damasco, are you old or young? What is your job? Do you have a family? Your English is quite good - have you told us where you've studied? What is your goal in life and how does participating in this list further it?

I don't really think this'll work, but it was good for me to ponder it. Ranting from a faceless source is boring, but ranting from somebody you know might be interesting if it helps fill out a bigger picture. It also might feel different to Dr. D if he tried to answer these questions, but I'm not holding my breath. (C'mon, it's a challenge . . .)

I am still stumped as to why this guy ended up on the Michael list. Usually when you're raging at infidels, it's either a) to convert them, or b) to gain points with your own side. Since a) is highly unlikely, and as far as I know not a lot of Dr. Damasco's co-believers are reading this list, I can't see why he's writing us all these letters. It occurred to me that he thinks Heaven might be seeing his efforts and awarding him points for trying.

(Rest assured, Heaven sees, and you're getting points :-)

Really, though, I think he's just having a jolly good time out there. It probably feels great to be a man on a mission.

Actually, I can "feel" the Michael's energies when they smile or chuckle. It is a feeling. I do not "see" them smile, nor do I "hear" them chuckle. They also make puns too. They are not at all lacking in humor.

Dave,

You may not want to limit yourself this way. Sex is an important part of life and there is no reason you shouldn't enjoy a reasonable amount (speaking from the intellectual center here).

You can actively create situations in your life that will attract the love you need regardless of any mating agreements you think you may or may not have.

One of the messages that has been coming through from the "Energy I Give the Name Michael" is that we are coming to a place where we no longer have the option of not consciously creating our reality. You may want to try practising creating a mating agreement for yourself - I can recommend some techniques. I'm sure your essence won't mind a bit especially since you would be much happier squeezing up close to your newly beloved. Why not? Your happiness is essence's happiness.

Anyway I didn't know Ben & Jerry were that kinky, or, are they into adult films now?

Possibly there is someone on this list who lives in your area who would like to at least share some ice cream with you and enjoy your wit and enthusiasm for music. And even a wet toungue in your ear sans helados. Pray, come forward oh naughty one!

Then Otterly writes:

I gotta walk on eggshells here, because I would never want to insult another person who is channeling, regardless of style, source, or whatever. I really mean it. I want to clear that up that I was only questioning,... I'll explain:

I've been channeling Michael now for ten years, been exposed to Michael through several other channels, and there is a consistency that makes me feel amazed, in awe of the reality of this entity. Also, there is a certain "feeling" I've grown to know as Michael in my own channeling as well as others. SOMETIMES, a person claiming to channel Michael will make my "Uh-Oh" light go off. It doesn't "look" like Michael, doesn't "feel" like Michael, but the words are familiar. I usually chalk that up to a person channeling "themselves" with a Michael Terminology Filter, perhaps.

This is my own issue and I would like to playfully approach this. I think it's time. We can move on from the Doctor, and examine each other! That'll be fun.

Because of my clientele, I am aware of the affects of "bad channeling" coming from certain sources, and the impact it can have on individuals who trust it right off just because it is in a Michael Package. It's a mess to deal with. It's not so much the "bad channeling" that is the mess, but the insistence from the channel that his/her channeling is in fact absolutely correct and that you, the "non-channel" basically have no clue. The insistence of the channeled information being correct against your own intuition and perceptions is something I cannot relate to.

So, with that said, I had my little hairs stand up when I read the channeling; not because it was "bad", but because of the seeming infusion of personality that I do not recognize as Michael's energy (per my experience, of course), the convenience of the Doctor's Overleaves (I have found the Overleaves a little more complex than that, myself. I see a couple of others have, too, based on some follow-up posts) and the authoritative stance in which it was presented (that it was from Michael, "so strongly", and not your own observations kicking in [possibly?]...)

See? As a Michael Channel, and probably because of my own Self-Dep' I have resisted placing any responses from Michael through me on the list for fear of the same criticism. You know,... who's this Otterly Blue, comin' in here spewing channeling all over the place AGAINST what Michael says through the long-time lister(s). So, rather than create a rift, or confusion, I've laid low and took it out on the Christians (hee hee, just kidding).

It's really a dilemma. I'm serious. It's very frustrating as channels to look around and "feel" HONESTLY where Michael is and isn't. Who could ever be an authority on that? No one. It's all up to each of us.

I'm sorry I knocked it, that was inappropriate; I was caught up in the fun of it, and my mind slips into "everything is safe and beautiful and you can say anything you want", blah blah blah... but maybe it was insulting. I apologize for that, if it was. I'm a little embarrassed.

If it was taken in good light, then I ask now, "How do all of you deal, internally, externally, with the channeling you receive through us so-called Michael Channels? How do you discern? We could all easily be delusional, or quacks, or just naive...? I am open to any and all criticism in open forum of the channeling I've placed on my site (more to come, by the way), or that some of you have gotten personally.

No one really asks these questions. But I will ask that we all just skip the whole thing if there is going to be a lot of wishy washy answers and evasion of the question. I hate that. I really want to know.

In my case, I roll my eyes, basically. I just wish I could point and say, "what the HELL?" (Obviously, sometimes I do...) I WANT to be able to say who I feel is an accurate, honest, and humble channel and who is not. But I will never be able to do this because I am not the authority, only in my own life, and it is all so subjective anyway. I can disregard whatever I want when it comes to accepting channeling.

But it's not that easy for me all the time, since I am in a public position, and have to deal with the fallout of another channel's behaviour. It's invariably the result of only one other channel, by the way, but it's raised questions for me as to how I can deal with this without just shouting, "forget everything you've gotten through that channel, you must start all over...".

Okay, so since I've gone into Oration, and Passion Mode is kicking into high gear here, here are my clarified questions to you all... snip here, if you will:

1. If you are a Michael Channel, or have dabbled into channeling Michael, do you think it is fair to not include a disclaimer or possibility or reminder that this channeling, even at it's best, WILL be "flawed" (up to and above 20%)? It is never ever going to be accurate beyond that, never.

2. In your experiences as Students seeking channeling, how have you dealt with information that cannot possibly be true for you? I don't mean information you WISH wasn't true, I mean really untrue, like someone's ROLE, or the insights behind an event...?

3. (no names please) Have any of you had a session with a channel who has "nudged" you into accepting the information against your better judgment? Responding to you as if you need only understand in time? Or have had the information "fitted" to the situation with explanations that seem more like energy spent justifying than conveyance of a truth? If you have, how did you deal with this, and how do you move to another channel with trust?

Okay, that's all.

Ken, I only responded to you that way because of ME and my own skepticism of that type of channeling. I hope I explained it well. I know Michael has a sense of humour but it is greatly different than ours and it's usually accidental or a play on words. I just have never seen them deliberately make a corny joke, that's all.

Ok, my computer is being replaced this weekend... so If you don't hear from me over the next couple of days (as you all sigh a relief?), it's because this one went kaputz and I'm off line. Also, my grandfather died, and a devil child evil pumpkin headed housemate of ours (an Artisan over the edge on heavy medication, HUGE mental imbalances, caring for mental patients, herself, and violent) is finally leaving our space this weekend, moving for GOOD. Maybe you won't see me so edgy after that. She has been the source of all the electrical problems and lightening strikes to the house, I think! Ever had a Poltergeist?

Anyway...

OTTERLY NOW WRITES:

I agree with you TED.

My Mate Agreements were "pre-planned", but Michael has informed me of my "on-the-spot" Mate Agreements. You are never stuck with the ones you planned. In fact, sometimes, even the "pre-planned" Mates, once you see them, are not always what you intended to mate pre-incarnation, so you just pass them by. I've had a couple like that. You can feel your Essence/Personality kinda going, "Damn! You started SMOKING!?? You weren't supposed to do THAT!!" Or "Oh god, he lost a leg! Moonlight walks on the beach in CIRCLES, forget it!" hee hee

I never count on these mate Agreement info things anyway, because you usually react in one of two ways,... You get all eager, knowing you have a Mate Agreement coming up in Winter '98, let's say, so you kick into hyper active experience mode, squishing all of your experiences needed for the Mate Agreement into a week, what would have normally gone smoothly over 4 months, for instance. Then, you have all these expectations, and you are tired, and broken from your overload. The Mate Agreement person, as their Essence picks up on YOUR hyper mode, kicks into gear the life of the Mate, too. You meet in a week, instead of 4 months later, but you are broken, tired and no longer eye candy. You both go, "oooo, I don't recognize this mess..." and forget the whole thing.

Or, the other reaction is to realize, "OMYGOD! OMYGOD! A mate is on it's way, I must prepare, I must clean my life up, OMYGOD! Is that him? Is that Her? OMYGOD! Am I ready? OMYGOD! OMYGOD! OMYGOD!" Time passes, and so does the time frame for the mate. You never truly feel the time is "right", and you rearrange the Agreement, postpone, etc.,...

Cyprus, my girlfriend, has shooed many a boy off with her internal reactions like this. It seems her Personality liked to use the PROSPECTS of matedness to examine herself intensely, more than the actual pursuit of the Mate Agreement, itself. She's passed that phase, and now I can't keep them from busting down the door.

Me, well, I just sit here with my nose all squished to the window, going, "hello? hello? I'm serious now, about a Mate, hello? Really. Damn steam from my breath! hello?"

So TED, don't be all helpin' DAVE,...he's just fine with his flutes and dairy. Send some lovin' THIS way! And I don't even EAT ice cream, so don't even try to invite me DAVE!

A couple of weeks ago I was on my way to take an exam in my computer programming course. I got the idea of contacting a parallel where I was already a programmer for some help during the test (that's not cheating, is it?). I started urgently calling on my essence and Michael for help in making contact. Michael laughed and laughed. I was a bit bemused at this, and stuck my tongue out at them. I asked in Aaron's chat group about it and they said I had made contact with the parallel just by thinking of it, and they laughed because I didn't need the help.

      Thank you for putting it so well-- the Michaels brought me to Jesus in a wayI could live with. I was raised Christian, and I hated most of it (all the human gunk they threw on top of the basic teachings), but I couldn't shake this feeling that *something* real did happen back then, at the core of the religion....

      When I hit the Michael material, I felt like I had come home--I didn't have to give it all up--I could embrace the "core" of what I had been raised with, and also the other great "cores". Incarnations of Infinite Soul--that just felt correct, immediately...

      I think what is most reassuring is the beautiful similarity among these core beliefs, that is validating for me.

Here's one I use (for now as I am always revising)

1. Channeling is not factual truth but a tool for obtaining and verifying what is personally true about your own life. Allow the information to help you make a decision but don't let it make the decision for you. The channeling process is complex and as imperfect as the language we use to express it.

2. I am not a health professional so I cannot diagnose mental/physical illnesses. I will give you channeled insight though which I hope will aid in your spiritual growth and physical healing. I sincerly hope that what we (myself and the beings I channel) can serve you in helping you make choices from the place of your own self acceptance

3. And from Michael " Questions asked sincerely provide the best results and allow a greater opening for healing and self awareness. Keep in mind that we do not tell you what do do.

If someone channels me as warrior instead of artisan it may be an opportunity to look at the surrounding message. Good channeling would have some kind of reason behind that call. The reason may carry a valuable message to look at the warrior aspects of my life etc. For example, I was channeled as dominance instead of growth, but at that time of my life I was in a place that required me to lead others. The message could then be: Look at how you are using dominance and how is it affecting your goal of growth. It is up to me as a recipient to carefully evaluate the message and look at the different sides.

Then again, if you get what you consider a wrong overleaf, and you really feel that it is the wrong overleaf, then you may want to acknowledge to yourself that you have come some way in understanding the Michael Teaching. That is, you can see your own overleaves clearly.

This is a teaching and teaching involves many, many wrong answers. It wouldn't be a learning experience if we only received the right answers - we may even get stuck in the same dogma we are wanting relief from. Consider that as Michael students we are in one big Student/Teacher monad - good teachers make the students do all the work.

We are our own authorities and no channel should deny us that. Channels don't make choices for us; we can use, reject, store and share the information but it is only information. We make the choices.

This is going to be good for me. I hope others who have concerns and "issues" will contribute, too.

Michael says the CAN'T be misrepresented or distorted, since we see what we want no matter how "clearly" they come through,...I GET IT intellectually, just not emotionally...

When I "feel" it's NOT Michael, I cringe...

Upon entering Tao Central mid conversation.......

“Ok, now who’s gona be Ernie?”
“Me, over here. I’m gona be Ernesto.”
“You certainly are going to be that. Sorry, Ernie, somebody else has already got the name Dr. Demento. Choose another one. You know your lines? You’ve got to really punch it up or nobody’s going to notice you, much less interact with you.”
“Yes I know my part. I show up on something called a “list” via a computer. What the heck is a computer anyway?”
“Well Ern, I could tell ya, but given the overleaves you’ve chosen there’s a real danger of you going on about the ‘work of the devil’ or the ‘word of God’ a little too early in your cycle and it could get a little dicey around the time of the Inquisition and all. Besides, being a psycic doesn’t get popular till later in the century. Then you can get paid to be one. Don’t worry about computers. You’ll know one when you see one.”
“When do I show up on this list?”
“I’d reckon sometime mid year 1998 when things are a bit slow out there on the teaching end of the list .”
“Oh yeah, I remember now. I show up, elicite emotion, encite thought & discussion make waves, stir up the soup, cause riots, create chaos & in general call attention to myself!”
“Well, sorta. This is a learning excercise for us Ernie. We’re all going out there with our own agendas, agreements and overleaves to see how we handle these sorts of situations and how our chief features try to trip us up & you get to be the catalyst for this session.” “Sounds like I get to be the bad guy.”
“Nah, not really. Just irritating for a while, and only to some of the group, just till we start recognizing who you really are. We’ll feel that way about several others of us in the group too.”
“And how long do I stay with this list?”
“Till everybody who chooses to interact with you has done so. And until you learn what you need to learn to move ahead yourself.You’ve all gotten your agreements down, right? Made a list of what you want to experience, right?”
“OK, I’m ready. Let’s do it!”
“Hold on Ernie. Where’s the Ott-n-Dave? OK, who’s going to be who this time around? No, I don’t think it matters as long as you don’t do a switch on us mid lifetime. People get spooked by that sort of stuff. Main thing to remember is that you two play an important part in keeping things in perspective just by how you react to Ernie here. We need lots of fancy footwork from you two. Jest & jab jest & jab. It’s called ‘comic relief. We don’t need this lesson to get too ‘heavy’ or some of us may just decide to quit before we get what we finish this excercise.”
“We’re on it, never fear. OTTNDAVE are here!”
“Oy. OK people, let’s be careful out there. Grab your agendas, agreements & don’t forget your overleaves. Nothing more sad or boring than a fragment without it’s overleaves on. We’ll meet back here at the appointed time and compare notes.”

Dear Otterly,

Maybe it's like the blind men trying to describe an elephant:
one man describes the trunk,
another describes a tusk,
another describes a leg,
another describes an ear,
another describes the tail,
another describes its ...
etc.

If each man feels that his "feeling" of an elephant is the only indication of truth, then they are all missing a greater truth of that wonderful creature called an elephant.

If each channel feels that his "feeling" of Michael is the only indication of Michaelness then we are all missing a greater truth of Michaelness.

To me the 1050 Michael fragments have many different "feels" to them. Your wonderful channelings of Michael have a different feel to them than Ted's, or JP's, or Aaron's, or mine. In my own channelings of Michael I get different feelings of Michael depending on the nature of the questions I am asking, and how Michael chooses to communicate with me. Sometimes there are no words at all, just a transmitted knowing.

I have learned that rather than looking for clear feelings of an identity, I listen for feelings of "goodness" and "righteous intent" and "level of the source" that are independent of who I am trying to channel. When I want to check who it is I am channeling (when I am in doubt) I just ask. (Ex. "Are you Michael of the Overleaves?")

Whenever I have come across what I thought was conflicting channelings on some topic I found that down the road a bit what I was really experiencing was a another and different view of the same "elephant".

-----

Another point that is true with me (and maybe other scholars) is my "Scholarly" way of talking, that many of my long time personal friends have recognized. And that is my talking (and writing) as though I have "the" grasp of "the" truth. I get laughed at a lot for this, because they know that I don't really feel that way about myself... I just come off that way sometimes. This I understand is a characteristic of "Scholars".

I am very aware of this when counseling clients, and I always preface a counseling session with an explanation of my possible fallibility(sp?) and their personal responsibility to themselves (read validation). I also ask them for their continued feedback about their feelings about our conversation.

Subject: RE: Same Elephant & KEN

Thank you for even taking the time to respond to my agitated reaction. That was very kind of you. I appreciate it, immensely.

Now, see, all of that makes sense to me, your response. It's not that I have ever thought there was only one version of Michael, just a certain "flavor", I guess. I've never been too concerned with the different styles. That's easily explained. But there is this thread of consistency that is lacking sometimes, in some channeling.

Over the years, I have moved through three clusters of Michael Fragments in my channeling. It was apparent that the energies and specialties shifted along with it, but that consistency was still there. Right now, I work with 12 Fragments; 3 Kings and 9 Warriors. The Kings do all the "speaking", I suppose, while the Warriors run around gathering info for the session at hand, etc.,..

See, I think, with the mainstreaming of Michael, and the availability of their energies to anyone interested, there is bound to be some personification. I have had very little personification available to me from Michael. I have to kind of "force" a picture of them (a silvery blue-ish light, by the way). They seem more like a frequency than a person laughing and cracking jokes... They can be the most hilarious of anyone, but it's usually by some play on words, or an extremely DRY wit. Like my King friend, Basil. He just stands around and everyone wonders what kind of judgment he is placing on them, then he opens his mouth and without even meaning to, can floor the room with his comment. He can be sooo funny, but he doesn't even mean to be. That's what my experience of Michael's humour has been. It's never been like Seth, where an a actual Fragment's Personality from the entity was used as a vehicle.

In the same way, they have never praised, or coddled anyone. They have never said things like, "everything will be all right, don't you worry, precious...". Just another example of what would make my hair stand up if I heard "Michael" saying those words. THAT'S a good example of what I mean.

I don't know... Maybe you are right about the elephant, and I just grabbed the big ass part and can't see a damn thing either way... hee hee. Maybe I've been missing out on a real joker. And, let's say, some ARE channeling Michael in the way Seth was channeled. A Fragment of the entity and a specific Personality template as a vehicle. Now that never occurred to me, till just now! And, in your case, since you don't promote yourself as a channel on a wide scale, and focus mainly on Overleaves (from what I read?), then it might make perfect sense that this might be the case?

WOW. A big "DUH" is on my forehead. What is your take on that possibility?

Like I said, in the earlier post, I've never really had a problem with someone's style (that's just been an aside question). I have really only had a problem with one channel's fallout, and it wasn't due to the channeling, it was due to the pushy, overbearing, authority generated by the fear of discrepancies, contradictions, and just plain being wrong.

Michael can poke fun, laugh, make things up, dance a jig, for all I care, through or for anyone. It's when a person's channeling begins to be defended that I feel weird.

And from your response, I would never in a million years EVER knock your channeling JUST because you actually EXPLAINED to me your take on it, you didn't have to defend it. THAT has changed my opinion altogether. Whether I resonate or not with certain expressions is irrelevant. I honor your approach, and my ignorance cannot/will not be a standard.

Thank you Ken. I am now closer to perfection... HA!

Ps: Can any other Channel on the list share their internal experience of channeling Michael, what fragments are working with them, anything? I think that would be most enlightening to many.

Thanks, Kenneth. I had known that debating doctrines and theology with Dr. D is a futile exercise, hence I can only admire those who did. :-) I have had my share of such debates in the past, and from both sides of the coin, to boot (yeah, "been there, done that").

Which was why my longest response to him was about his own personality, according to my observation. How accurate I was depends on his own validation. :-) And for that, I earned the "Grrrrrrr" from whomever (sorry, forgot your name). At that point, I was wondering whether I had did anything wrong. Granted that my post sounded like a personal flame, so I will state here, again, that my observations were done in detached manner. i.e. It is more an exercise of my observation and writing skills than a personal attack. Anyway, from that "Grrrr...", it sounded that I failed miserably. :-)

Personal validation... well, not true for me. :-) I have come across several [what I perceive to be] Baby Souls (or at least they act that way), though perhaps they are not in Power Mode, or Domination Goal. And at least one of them was a Priest, too.

One question here -- does Soul Age have anything to do with "sense of humor"? :-) I mean, perhaps this particular Baby Priest is so serious that he forgets his "sense of humor", and take Otterly's words at face value. (while choosing to ignore my more pointed, "serious-sounding" words to him?)

(gee where did I misplaced my sense of humor?)

Post-No.: michael-teachings-l/1998-07-29/2444 (digest-marker)
From: Philip Wittmeyer

 

Hi Dave and y'all,

For your information, Theosophy also has seven fundamental personality
types. (In fact, they are as big on sevenness as Michael is.) Their names
are Ruler (king?), Teacher (priest?), Philanthropist (server?), Artist
(sage?), Scientist (scholar?), Devotee (warrior?), and Craftsman (artisan?).
I only saw the names listed in one book I read (published in 1956) and I did
not pursue a full description in other Theosophical texts, so my correlation
is tentative. There are so many similarities between Michael and Theosophy
that I have often wondered what the connection was - other than the
connection that truth is truth whoever the messenger might be.

 

      In all the world there are only TWO kinds of people- those who knows, and those who do not know; and this knowledge is the thing which matters. What religion a man holds, to what race he belongs- These things are not important; the really important thing is this knowledge - the knowledge of God's plan for men. For God has a plan and that plan is evolution. When once a man has seen that and really knows it, he can not help working for it and making himself one with it, because it is so glorious, so beautiful. So, because he knows, he is on God's side, standing, for good and resisting evil, working for evolution and not for selfishness.

I am still stumped as to why this guy ended up on the Michael list

 

Spiritweb has a lot of mailing lists and I believe he accidentally signed on to this one thinking it was something else (like Archangel Mike) instead of this. He posted on 7/20 a long attached file that is his "AUTHOBIOGRAPHY AND CREDIBILITY". It's pretty interesting. Anyone who had that experience and "credibility" would have a great temptation to brag about it. I understand how Ernie in his world can really think he's hot stuff. Similarly, in that belief system we're dupes of Satan and so on. A baby priest is going to have a powerful mission to save our souls from the satanic likes of Ken and Otterly. And nothing, nothing we can say will change his mind. Baby souls are prone to believe what they don't understand (like older souls) is evil and satanic. Even agape, in words, will look phony to him. In person he might perceive the loving energy and not feel it was fake.

Notice the term CREDIBILITY above. His whole story is about authority and credentials of authority. This is all-important to baby souls, who are pretty well constitutionally incapable of thinking for themselves.

He probably wishes he hadn't stumbled into our little nest of evil, but he can't back down, for to do so would be to violate all his religious beliefs which say you have to stand up to evil whatever the cost and trust you'll be protected.

All the best, Ed

Just like those pictures of God as a big old muscular white guy with a beard that I kept seeing in books that I read as a child. What does God look like? What does Michael look like? It's really difficult to not anthropomorphize something that you can converse with, but that you can't see with your eyes.

My image and feeling of Michael is usually a clear basketball sized sphere sitting in the back of my head and shoulders... a sphere of knowledge and light with arm-like appendages coming out of the sides and going down into my shoulders and arms and into my hands. Sometimes the sphere extends itself down my spine. And it really blows me away when they do that.

I can't remember having heard any coddling or praising either... from any channeled entity or fragment that I respect. My hair wouldn't stand up, but I expect that if I had (or ever do that) I would just put it into my mental archives just for future reference.

Very possible, I expect. I don't recall contacting just a single Michael fragment, but more like different groups of fragments that have different "flavors". However... I can see the possibility of one or more of the Michaels putting on a personality template of sorts for whatever reason.

To me when anyone over-defends or proselytizes their truth, or the truth of whatever, then the defender him/herself is not really stable in that truth.

Subject: Ailing mother & Trip

Here's a problem that some scholars and channelers might want to ponder. My elderly parents haven't been on a trip in over 20 years. Their years are dwindling, so I secretly purchased plane tickets, and saved the money for car rental and hotel costs, for a 2 week trip to New England in September. (No, I am not rich, but quite to the contrary.)

Here's the rub: My Mother has come down with a serious sinus infection that may require surgery. The doctor has told her that air travel is not an option. Obviously, this spoils the trip and I'm out of bread from the soon- to-be-defunct tickets.

My Mom is an artisan/king. She lives a very dull existence, and does virtually nothing that's creative, save for her manifestations of various illnesses that are always puzzling to her doctors. My Dad is a Server/Sage who obviously enjoys her difficulties on a certain level because it allows him to be devoted and of constant assistance.

My question: If at all possible, is there a technique that my Mother could employ that would help her realize that she could use her creativity in other areas other than creating illness, as well as clearing up her sinus problem so that she could avoid surgery and still go on the trip?

My parent's situation seems so clear to me, yet I feel that they could still achieve their essence goals without this particular drama in their lives. Of course, luck would have it that they are both Mature souls who live for this kind of turmoil. ;-p

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :-)

>What's my problem? How do you other channels TRULY find peace in that
>conflict? Am I the only one who gets riled? Is it my goobery Overleaves?

 

I am not necessarily without conflicts about channeling. I have my opinions, ideas, feelings and prejudices about others channels - and that includes the whole gamut from Michael to Seth to Woozidicious of the 22nd dimension. Usually getting to know the other channel as a person changes any prejudices I have about them.

One thing I have noticed about myself is that I enjoy getting riled up about things. When I tell stories about my life the ones that get me excited are the stories about human folly, especially stupidity. This may be because intelligence was highly rated in my parents and I was deemed to be of inferior quality. Good grades in school were considered next to Godhood and mine were generally mediocre - just chalk it up to old soul laziness. There was certainly nothing in school I couldn't grasp, but I would just as soon do other things than study (watching the Beverly HillBillies ranked high on the "important things to do list".)

But....I really believe I do create situations to get me riled - whatever the reason. I get riled when the students DON'T CLEAN UP THERE MESSES!!! So, I take a step back and consider whether I want to do the martyrdom of cleaning up after them or go into dominance and have them take responsibility for there messes.

Maybe what I am getting to here is that we are always looking at ourselves when we criticize - whether it is our own insecurities or jealousies. When we look at them they reveal something about ourselves, maybe an old wound or hurt that we've neglected.

I agree there is a consistency in the way people channel Michael. I have never felt patronizing, sentimental or gushy when channeling. There is always a feeling of equality within the triad of client, myself as channel and "the energy I give the name Michael". The client is always reminded of their responsibility and power in their life. Afterall, we channel to empower others and link them with essence.

      3. Each key must be turned seven times.- S.D., I,22
      4. The Jews availed themselves of two keys out of seven.
      5. The Metaphysical key is available .- S.D. I , 388. Compare III,198.

      In human kingdom lies the key, by turning the key opens up a door to wider understanding as it admits one into mysteries of nature. Through that key has to turned seven times, yet even one turn reveals untold avenues of eventual comprehension.

      Seven keys open the mysteries, past and future, of the seven great rootraces and of the seven kalpas. Every occult book, symbol and allegory can be subjected to seven interpretations. There are three locks to be opened. Seven keys. Every book can be read exoterically, subjectively and spiritually. All keys are available. The Secret doctrine reveals physiological key, the phychological, the astrological, the metaphysical, and the fifth, the geometrical. The remaining two keys were revealed this 1998, specially when Drunvalo speaks of the Merkaba and the flower of life (Hall of Records).

      The Overleaves chart present only a distorted view of cosmic physical. There are seven cosmic plane of the solar system. The cosmic Physical , Cosmic Astral, Cosmic Mental, Cosmic Buddhic, Cosmic Atmic, and the Cosmic Adi. Beyond these plane are higher Planes, Universe Physical, Universe Astral, Universe Mental, Universe Buddhic, Universe Atmic and Universe Adi.

Reference : A Treatise of Cosmic fire, Alice A.Bailey, 1925
           H.P.B's Secret Doctrine, 1893

      The Mike-entity can not discuss higher plane of existence because they themselves were trap at the astral plane of Cosmic Physical. They only look at the Universe in a limited and distorted manner. The same in previous times, when men believe the Earth is flat. They must be in flat land and this is their fate.

That's just too complicated. You need to learn a simpler rule -- there is only one key. And the key is: stop internal dialogues, achieve complete inner silence, for extended time (as long as you can manage).

But then again, as of now, you thrive on much internal dialogues, theories, theologies, complex rules, things that are designed to overload your reasons (your internal dialogues), but failed utterly in your case simply because you have yet to learn detachment. i.e. You identify yourself with your rules and believes, rather than using them as tools which they are designed for.

You have misidentified these tools as "Truth".

==============================================

Mr. Rollo Anmed in his book the Complete Book of Wichcraft, 1966, Coronet Communications, Inc. define Witches as :
      Wtches are persons of both sexes, who were able to perform acts beyond the scope of ordinary folk by means of help from evil spirits and by the casting of spells. The word "witch" came to be applied almost exclusively to women who were believed to achieve their power by making a blood pact with the Devil, sealed with their blood. They were usually old and ugly, and for this reasons many unfortunate old ladies, whose only crimes were loneliness and a lack of beauty, went to the stake. There are many accounts of sprietely and seductive young witches, who by "sex-appeal" lured men to destruction or introduced them to their own evil ways. They were supposed regularly to attend witches meetings or sabbaths(coven). these ceremonies being terrible orgies where the participants indulge in drinking blood and urine, kissing the posterior of the materialized devil-usually in the form of goat, and trampling upon the Host in the ceremony of the Black mass. Promiscuous sexual indulgence took place, and every filthy act the human mind can conceive was performed accompanied by gluttony and drunkenness.
      Witches were kept quite busy, causing all manner of sickness and harm at the behest of those who consulted them. In old days, if the possession was nly acquired and not a natural attribute, it was thought that its power could be warded off by saying somthing disgustingly rude, or by displaying some atrociously vulgar gesture accompanied by loud laughter, whic custom led to some very Rabelaisian performances, as may be imagined.

Subject: reply to Dr. D.

Hi Ernesto,

In response to your posting, "Two types of man (not seven)": I saw the quote about the seven personality types in a book called "Space, Time and Self", authored by E. Norman Pearson, page 172, 1957, Theosophical Publishing House. This entire book purports to be an exposition of certain aspects of the Theosophical teaching. Mr. Pearson many, many times quotes and refers to various Theosophical luminaries such as Helena Blavatsky, Annie Besant and C. W. Leadbeater. This is the only book I own on the subject of Theosophy, and it is true that Mr. Pearson did not explicitly refer to the seven types as a Theosophical teaching, but I am 99% sure because of the context that it is Theosophical. I just do not know what other Theosophical text to refer you to in order to substantiate my perception.

The "two kinds of people" you referred to in your quote from a book on Theosophy ("those who know, and those who don't know") are a horse of a different color -- not just a different part of an elephant.-than the seven personality types. This is so self-evident to me, and it is so baffling to me that you do not also see it, that I am finding it awkward to try to formulate a response. Therefore I will just make a statement with no evidence or argument to support it: The "seven types" and the "two kinds" are in whole different categories, completely independent of each other.

At the risk of sounding like a kid yelling at another kid in the school yard, saying "my God can beat up your God", I would like to respond to your quote from "Talks on the Path of Occultism" and other remarks you have made on the subject of good and evil, heaven and hell and such. I have an "axe to grind" on this list - namely, sharpening perceptions (you all and my own) -- and I hope my responses serve that purpose. My response is simply this: my "God" is not the "God" that opposes "Satan", but the "God" that exists and functions one strata toward greater integration and includes "Satan." ("One" is "closer" to Tao than "Two.") That "God" is the biggest "deity" in the cosmos. In fact, that "God" is the cosmos. "All is of God. All is in God. All is for God" as it says in the Bible (somewhere, if I recall correctly). There will probably be more from me on "theology" in later postings.

Dave:

I am neither a scholar (everyone says I'm a warrior, but I "feel" more like a priest - must be some really weird overleaves, huh?), nor a channel, but a practical solution would be to salvage what money you can from the tickets by getting a physician's note re: your mother's condition (not being able to fly due to her sinus problems), trade 'em in on train tickets to the same destination ... and send them on their way. (How's that for a run-on sentence?)

If your Mother comes up with another illness, and your folks come up with more excuses, perhaps you are trying to fix something that ain't really broken. I don't have to tell you that all choices are valid ... even those that don't appear to be valid to you. It's wonderful that you want them to have a good time and enjoy themselves. But maybe it's time to examine why you want them to do that ... do you feel like you have to pay them back for something? How are you feeling in your role as the good son? Do you want to get them out of town for a while so that you can go over to their house and raid the refrigerator? You know the routine ... egad, being a kind & loving & generous child can sometimes be so complicated, can't it? We want our parents to be happy, but we want them to be happy our way!! Because we can see so clearly how they could be happy, if they would only listen to us and do it our way. (Of course, most parents spend their lives thinking the same thing about their children.) We all want the best for the people we love.

Please don't take any of the above as a judgment call on my part ... I actually ask myself these questions quite often. I've been working on this unconditional love question for the last 37+ years, and ask myself often: Am I doing this because it's the right thing to do, or am I expecting something in return? Would I do this right thing even if there was no return? What if I got no cosmic strokes, points whatsoever ... what if there's really NOTHING when this is all over ... would I still do this right thing?

Truly, I would be blessed if my lovely son (now 5) grows up to be such a generous son as you appear to be.

I hope that things work out, and if your folks take the trip to New England, I'm sure they'll enjoy themselves.

Sending abundant energy your way to do with as you will.

It has been mentioned that not all of the 1050 fragments of Michael are speaking at the same time in a channeling session, so it is entirely possible that different fragments are doing channeling through you, while different ones through Kenneth. It is also entirely possible that fragments from Michael are aware of your personal predilections/arrangements so that some prefer to work with you while some other work with Kenneth, or any other channelers.

It sounds confusing. :-) So I'll just write something simple -- a parable. A teacher was teaching a student about meditation, and about the visions while meditation. The student reported experiencing a horrible vision where there were wars and slaughtering. The teacher said "let it go". A few days later, the student reported experiencing a fantastic vision of angels and spirits and deities, telling him heavenly secrets and teachings. The teacher said "let it go".

So, that's what I'm going to say, too. Let it go.

>20%)? It is never ever going to be accurate beyond that, never.

 

My last bit to comment on. The more common reason for "flawed" channeled information is "filtering system" of the channelers' minds, conscious or unconscious. What I am about to say may not be anything new, though perhaps less commonly known, or considered. It is said that the only constant in the universe is change. Is it possible to have one set of channeled information to be immutable? It is, therefore, possible to "intuitively validate" some channeled information at one given time, while "invalidate" the same information at some other time (before, or after). The universe is in a constant state of flux. Our ego (conscious minds) usually cannot cope with it, and create illusions where "status quo" is maintained. For this very reason, I submit, is Otterly's drive to be _really_sure_ about the accuracy of any given channeled information. For this very reason that our known science (knowledge base) is built upon, so that we don't have to cope with a universe that is constant flux, with laws of gravity changing every second along the way. And indeed, we create that reality, one in which certain degree of "status quo" is maintained.

Therefore, it makes sense to just "let it go". :-)

It also makes sense that it is sometimes impossible to prove the accuracy of any given channeled information, or whether the Michael entity chuckles during their channeling sessions. :-)

It is not just the minds of the channelers that filter the information coming through. It is the very nature of the information to change, in a state of flux. Take, for example, our overleaves. It was channeled that our overleaves stays the same throughout our lives with certain exceptions. This, IMO, is statistically correct because of our maintenance of status quo. IMO, it is entirely possible to change into different overleaves within a life-time, with we redirect our energy (which is expended to maintain the status quo) to cause the change to happen. But as it was pointed out, our current sets of overleaves were chosen to facilitate growth of a particular kind intended for this particular life, so the choice to stay in one particular set of overleaves should be to complete the life-task(s), not to maintain a status quo.

In closing, I would like to say that it does not really matter whether the channeled overleaves for Dr. D is correct, or not. To me, it was a fascinating insight into how he behaved in the several (rather confusing to say the least, with more self-contradictions along the way) posts he made. I am not about to treat that particular set of channeled information as something "cast in stones". :-)

"The only constant in the universe is change".
"Let it go".

Regards.

Shepherd, in his book, and Sarah Chambers have material about different Michael fragments or small groups of them working with different channels.

I think of Michael or similar entity groups as being analogous to large companies (let's say somewhat more idealized and "together" than in the real world)in that there is a company culture, point of view, products and so on, and a lot of individuals working together with close coordination as a team. The customers of XYZ Corp usually deal with just one person or a small group within XYZ. They may be personal friends or even have past-life connections and agreements with the XYZers. The XYZers will represent the "company line" but each with a slightly different flavor because they are individuals with different backgrounds and experiences. The overall agreement of the Michael entity with their 100,000 or so "students" seems to be like this, but the fragments of Michael are much more closely coordinated in their teamwork than the folks at XYZ.

      Ah, Lynne the power of pregnancy.... So True!! I must tell my story here.... I am sure that there have been many pregnancy stories on the list. I found out in January of 96 that I was pregnant once again with my third (and last) child depsite using the precautions that we used. My daughter was 9 months old and I was just beginning to feel some independence so I was not happy to say the least and I spent most of my pregnancy not overjoyed at being pregnant once again. It seemed that the closer I came to the due date the madder I got. And I was getting to the point that I was concerned at why I had all this anger. Meanwhile, my husband and his family are Jewish and they were spending a lot of time picking a hebrew name for our child. Around a week before our son was due they picked my husband's Grandfathers name which is Shalom. It really didnt mean much to me since I am neither Jewish nor religious in any way so I just passed it off. When I saw my son for the first time my thought was not "its my baby" but "hello friend." I knew him intimately right from the beginning. And my anger left me immediately and an intense feeling of peace replaced it and has been with me ever since. Shalom is another name for peace and my son is the peace maker. It was a perfect name for him.
      I didnt know it then (but I did sense it) but now I know that Aaron is a part of my entity (5th). Thats why sometimes at night when he puts his arms around me I get this bolt of love go through me like nothing I have ever felt before. Many times I have known exactly what he wants or feels without him having to tell me.
      He and his sister are 18 months apart. And the synchronicity of it all didnt occur to me until after he was born. I miscarried twins in 1994 and then I had these two children 18 months apart--one is an extremely challenging mature priest and the other is a peaceful loving mature (??) artison. It was a very strange miscarraige--the babies just died but at different times and they wouldnt expel from my body. But I was sure from the whole experience that one of them reneged but the other didnt want to, but wouldnt go it alone. I am sure that they have a strong bond and agreement together that has little to do with me. Aaron and I have no monads or significant agreements and I am sure he came here because she came here first. I am not positive but it is what I sense.
      Sometimes the enormousness of it all knocks me on my ass!

Subject: artisan males

Hi Dave and Ted,

This may or may not be a few words of comfort to you, but you both have recently confessed what pathetic losers you were with respect to romantic relationships. Well, me too. One thing we otherwise fine gentlemen have in common is that we are all artisan males. In an unpublished passage in transcripts of the original Michael group, Michael said words to the effect that artisan males are incompetent with females. Reason given was that artisans (and servers) are more comfortable when incarnated as females, just as warriors, scholars, and kings are more comfortable when incarnated as males. There, do you feel better now? I did when I read that. My current theory is that -- for old souls especially -- the only thing that can override or circumvent this challenge for us artisans is transcendent love with kindred souls - entity mates and such.

I have a couple days worth of old mail to sort through and possibly respond to, but this subject title caught my attention.

Yikes! "Pathetic loser?" I don't think I'd self-deprecate myself that far below sea level. ;-p My obstacle has been encountering mate agreements who just didn't mesh with my present personality. I met another mate agreement that was also an essence mate, but she unfortunately lives in Florida. Obviously, sustaining a relationship between the Sunshine state and southern California presents somewhat of a strain. But while it lasted, the passion was incredible. There's alot of past love and familiarity with that one. So I've struck out from time to time, but I've never been cheated up to bat, as I always swing for the fences.

In terms of being incompetent as a male, I don't think that's entirely true. I like to think I represent a nice balance. I can be intensely male at times, especially if you foolhardedly push my buttons. Though, I will concede that I've had many female friends say they most admired me for my sensitive side. Figure that one out. ;-p

Bottomline...I really enjoy being an artisan male, and most importantly, I like to stand when I pee. Sorry ladies....;-)

Subject: Re: Artisan males

Interesting thoughts, Phil. My ex-husband is an artisan, and most of his really close women friends are gay - in fact, he has even tried to "turn" lesbians and get them to have a physical relationship with him. I would suspect that many of these women are warriors and his essence says "now there's a good match!" It might look like "incompetency" from the outside - I call it "selection error" - but it makes sense from the Michael standpoint.

Scholarly sidetrack: Finding out that scholars are the "neutral" role explained a lot to me. I have been told many times that I come across as thinking of myself as "just a person" and it's true. My essence picked a Venusian body this time, and since age 12 I've had to deal with the societal concept that brains usually do not occur simultaneously and are really not necessary with such a body type . . . a real trial for a scholar!

Back on track: My artisan mate was far more accepting of my entire self than most males I've met. I wonder - here's a question back at you - with all those inputs, do artisans find us single-input types calming to be with? I often felt like I helped my mate slow down, pull back from doing a thousand things at once, and RELAX.

Anyway I like you guys just fine . . . my next mate agreement is with a warrior, but I'm supposed to spend my later years with another Old Artisan. Okay by me.

Subject: Overleaves is Mara, an illusion of separation

Dear Philip and Readers,

      The book entitiled SPACE,TIME, AND SELF by Norman Pearson published by The Theosophical Publishing House, Quest book, 1957
have the following Sections:
      1. Introduction
      2. Reality and Illusion
      3. The Illusion of Space (as Dimensions)
      4. The Illusion of Time ( as Succession)
      5. The Illusion of Self ( as Separation)
      6. The Mastery of Illusion
      7. Glimpses of Real
      You quoted page 172, under section five THE ILLUSION OF SELF
(As Separation). Chapter 1 Psychogenesis, the paragraph , as stated:

      Since the Monad emerge into manifestation throuh the seven planetary Chain Logoi, they are of seven fundamental types which, in physical life, may be broadly classified as the Ruler, the Teacher, the Philantropist, the Artist, the Scientist, the Devotee and the Craftsman. These divisions are frequently reffered to as the seven "Rays".

      The Monad will now be plunged into the illusions of the material worlds, from which he can escape only by mastering the illusions as their challenges awaken the Divine powers within him. (page 173).

      Therefore, the author is pointing out that your belief about the seven fundamental types are illusions and not real or true.

      What H.P.B's say in the Voice of the Silence:
      The unwary Soul that fails to grapple with the mocking demon of illusion will return to earth the slave of Mara... If through the Hall of Wisdom, thou would's reach the Vale of Bliss, Disciple, close fast thy senses against the great dire heresy of separateness that means thee from the rest.

      Mara is a personification of the attractiveness of external things. H.P.B describes him as follows:

      Mara is in exoteric religion a demon, an Asura, but in esoteric philosophy it is personafied temptation through men's vices, and translated literally means "that which kills" the soul. It is represented as a king (of the Maras) with a crown in which shines a jewel of such lustre that it blinds those who look at it, this lustre that it blinds those who look at it, this lustre referring of course to the facination exercised by vice upon certain nature.

      H.B.Blavatsky is one of the founder of the Theosopical Society. However, the true founder are the Mahatmas (Master M and Master K.H.) The Official authority book is the Secret Doctrine which is dictated by the Mahatmas. I am a Chairperson of the local Theosophical lodge and we may consider deep discussion of the Theosophical laws and principles.

Philip said:

 

This is the only book I own on the subject of Theosophy, and
it is true that Mr. Pearson did not explicitly refer to the seven
types as a Theosophical teaching, but I am 99% sure
because of the context that it is Theosophical. I just do not know what
other Theosophical text to refer you to in order to substantiate my perception.

 

      The book was correct, your information is validated by the book as illusion. Please read the entire book before using it as a reference. In the academic community, you are bluffing if you don't consider the true opinion of the author.       On the other hand, you are trying to avoid the current topic by changing it into secular Theology, why are you avoiding Theosophy. You bring the topic into Theosophy and you should stick into Theosophy !!! Do not confuse the discussion and look for symphaty . You are totally wrong in your information and you should accept the truth if you are a man. Be brave brother.

      The "two kinds of people" you referred to in your quote from a book on Theosophy ("those who know, and those who don't know").

      This is not horse or elephant . They are the true picture based upon reasons and information from the Mahatmas and officials of the Theosophical Society. There are quite many readers who are Theosophist. Fellow theosophist, please help Philip.
      There are quite a number of Lodges of Theosophical Society in your areas. They have libraries which you could read and learn. In the spiritweb.com a number of books could be downloaded and there are many sites in the web. Use your search engines, yahoo,Laycos, and etc. Since, we had a very limited space for posting I suggest you mentioned the reference book or the web site it could be downloaded. Use your resourcefulness and make your posting academically palatable. Refrain from character assasination- Mara will take you.

That's an interesting point. I'm an artisan, and I do seem to favor warrior and scholar females. Though, I also get along fairly well with Sages, too. There might be some truth to your theory about single-input types. I have noticed that they do help me focus better.

================================
Subject : WHAT MOTIVATES YOU ?
================================

What motivates you to get out of bed, to work, to play to give, to take, to do nothing, to keep busy, to be self involved, to give time to others?

Joy of daily living? Fear of if you don't? Obligation? Motivations/ Anticipation? Dread? Desire to serve self? Desire to serve others? Accumulation? People pleasing? Religious beliefs of sin and redemption? Money? All of the above? None of the above? What motivates you?

What about your spiritual motivation? Do you look to a higher power or God, the Creator and Spirit in any of these moments.? Or, do you wait until life is so bleak and overwhelming that you can't see your way out of the darkness? So many of you ignore or forget or don't even know if you believe, that there is God, the Creator, Spirit, at your elbow and at your beck and call in each moment as you breathe in and later exhale in this life.

Do you consider this a part of you? This connection to the Creator? Where you rise out of bed in the morning, do you stop a brief moment and consider the gift of breath, of life and of the joys and disappointments, of all the lessons and choices you had yesterday, and will have today, just as long as you intake air and release it? The connection with god, the Creator and Spirit as intimate a part of you as life itself. Do you consider this?

What if you don't? No problem. You just live life day today up and down probably basing much of your experiences to blaming people or places, or things for your misfortunes and praising yourself for your fortunes in life. Simple, isn't it?

But for those who feel a lack of substance, of meaning, of purpose, they need more. And the search for "why am I here?" begins or progresses.

Perhaps those are the wo/men who are motivated to see beyond, question "what if?" or "why?" those are the human beings who begin to see they are responsible for what happens, the experiences they draw into their lives, and in turn, the ones who begin to wake up, to remember, to exclaim, "Ah ha!" I am not just a body, I am the soul inside this physical self and I am a part of God, the Creator and that Spirit and God, help me along my path each day. This, friends, this, "Ah, ha!" can be your motivation in all that you do.

Each of you at any moment can begin to tune into this thought, this understanding and God, the Creator and Spirit are here to honor and support you in the moments you understand and in the moments prior to this, perhaps for the many years you have breathed air in this lifetime. For we are always, just as the air you breathe, with you.

I am very happy by myself and every time I fell in the love-pit I was miserable until I climbed back out again. But statistically, picking the wrong guy as many times as I did is practically impossible.

I am in my less favored body this time around, since I prefer male incarnations and have more male than female energy, but I came to learn not to look in others' eyes for my own self, and it worked very well. (That's one way to explain how it went, anyhow.) I don't resent the way I had to learn the lesson, but it sure was a strange trip.

Don't despair, for two reasons! First, there's probably some point to all the strange suffering and you'll eventually get it (which ends it); and second, the older you get the less difference it makes. I'm 51 now and could care less, as they say.

Also, I think Artisans might get more creative work done when they have time and space to themselves - I know I do. We do have to bring the results of our talents out for the enjoyment and service of others, but it helps to have a little time in the woodshed to think, open up, pull in our "helpers," and synthesize. I have never seen this channeled anyplace, but in my experience, we need this kind of space, perhaps more than other roles.

Any comments/validation/disagreement? Interested to see what you think about this, since we've all had much the same experience here.

Thanks for explaining your sig line in response to my question, Ernie. I like the part where you enclose your own name between your guides' symbols, that makes sense to me.

I'm no Scholar and really don't have the inclination to sort through the history of metaphysics, but I know enough to agree that Theosophy is certainly part of the same branch of thought as the Michael teachings. I'd like someday to read an objective description of how all these facets of Western secular mysticism are interrelated. . . . Oh heck, I'll never follow up on this. It was just something that flitted across my mind . . .

Subject: beliefs

Hi all,
    The discussion on Dr D's comments reminds me of a struggle I have discussing spiritual things with a christian at work. I kept trying to figure out who was supposed to be learning from who. He has given me insights as to how beliefs work. I seem to be learning humility from him.

Subject: Fw: Re: Witches and mediums , addition to Overleaves

Hello,
    I have been lurking here for a while... Watching the learned Ernie attempt to speak of that which he is not equipped to understand :-). I have tried to maintain silence about him as I am new to this list and still learning myself. HOWEVER, since I now have been receiving his nonsense both here and on another list... I have had it. Ernie, I have a message for you And I don't care if you "get it" or not... BTW, I am fully aware that I'm quoting a song at you...

    You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice;
    If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.
    You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
    I will choose a path that's clear, I WILL CHOOSE FREE WILL!!!

Try it Ernie... You might like it... Or not...

Doctor, I see you've stopped taking your lithium and Mellaril again. Who let you out anyway? Don't you know you could hurt somebody?

For someone who proports to work with the "higher" powers, I see that you don't know Lord Michael at all. He does not judge us. Neither does the Michael this list is dedicated to.

I see that I have no idea who you really are--but you are definitely not who you say you are.

Doesn't everything we say or do have some effect on somebody else? I think it does......

 

"SMILE"

She smiled at a sorrowful stranger.
The smile seemed to make him feel better.
He remembered past kindnesses of a friend
And wrote him a thank you letter.

The friend was so pleased with the thank you
That he left a large tip after lunch.

The waitress, surprised by the size of the tip,
Bet the whole thing on a hunch.

The next day she picked up her winnings,
And gave part to a man on the street.

The man on the street was grateful;
For two days he'd had nothing to eat.
After he finished his dinner,
He left for his small dingy room.
(He didn't know at that moment
that he might be facing his doom.)
On the way he picked up a shivering puppy
And took him home to get warm.

The puppy was very grateful
To be in out of the storm.

That night the house caught on fire.
The puppy barked the alarm.

He barked till he woke the whole household
And saved everybody from harm.

One of the boys that he rescued
Grew up to be President.

All this because of a simple smile
That hadn't cost a cent.--

Subject: Re: Hugs for Diane and Lori

Hi Diane, here's a hug for you - you deserve many!

Lori, hadn't thought of the possibility that Dr. D. had gone off his drugs - my reaction to his "poem" was that he must be ON some strange mixture of them.

I have started thinking of him as a bright 6-year-old who likes to hang around adults and get them to listen to him, but is incapable of engaging in a real conversation, and doesn't at all understand why they smile and look at each other with raised eyebrows while he's standing on a chair being on stage for them. Sometimes he says something cute, and everyone laughs - which is what he lives for. But if you correct him, or don't listen, he throws a tantrum.

[forestalling flames] I don't think this is particularly judgmental. As a mature soul in a bunch of oldies but goodies, I often feel myself like a angst-filled16-year-old who's been allowed to hang with her college-age siblings and their friends and longs for the day when she, too, will be out of the house and in the world. A young soul feels to me like a pubescent who, if forced to be around adults, spends his time rolling his eyes at their unfashionable hair and clothes and stupid attitudes, which he makes fun of with his friends while they're at the mall.

This rings true for me. I remember sitting next to warrior or king women and feeling quite grounded and thus calmer. I could describe it as feeling a solid column of energy anchoring me to the planet or the feeling of sitting next to a large tree (this is a high complement).

I kept thinking, is there some joke here and I'm not getting it??? Sat down with a pencil and tried to juggle the letters in his name around -

DR. E. L. DAMASCO = REAL ODD SCAM

E. L. DAMASCO = O SAD CAMEL

Nah, that's can't be it.

Dear Mary -- I've heard that the Dr. is all over the Spiritweb lists. He's an OLD SCAM, DEAR.

What's he want us to do? C DEAD MORALS.

What does he think we are? CLODS, MA DEAR.

What's his mission here? It's to SCOLD, MA DEAR. What's he want us to fit into? A SACRED (or SCARED?) MOLD.

There's at least one more good one, but I wouldn't want to use it and inhibit more greative genius here...

All the best, Ed

Subject: OTTERLY'S NEW LIFE

Hi everybody!

In the process of eliminating a difficult and disturbed person from our household, and in the wake of my grandfather's death, and after a complete loss of information on my computer, I have a new life!

Seriously, the first 7 months of this year have been extremely difficult and I am happy to say that I see a light now, a bright one.

Make note of my new addresses.

Since I lost my entire Email Program, I have no one's email addresses. Would my clients who are on this list, and any of you who are my pals, or just anyone who wants me to have it, please send me an email directly from your own address, so I can add it to my address book. When you hit "reply to all" (that should be an option in your email program), it will include my new address. Delete the Michael List address, then just send me this message, unless you want to tell me hi, and encourage my spirits?

Thank you everybody...

Be good.

Otterly Blue
