Are there two or three Overleaves left? Are
Bodytypes and Centers one
THERE ARE REMAINING THREE OVERLEAVES, THE
PHYSICAL MAKEUP [Bodytype and
Center] COUNTING AS ONE.
In the Goal of Growth, does one "review" all the
other Goals? [I have the
Goal of Growth and] It seems I'm in and out of
all of them.
THE GOAL OF GROWTH CAUSES THE SOUL TO SEARCH,
SOMETIMES RESTLESSLY, FOR THE
ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS OF A PHILOSOPHICAL AND
RELIGIOUS NATURE ALMOST FROM THE
TIME THE FIRST BREATH IS DRAWN. IN THE EARLY
CYCLES, THIS SOMETIMES CAUSES
GRIEF AND GUILT, AS THERE IS OFTEN A SPLIT WITH
FAMILY MEMBERS OVER
UNTENABLE VIEWS HELD BY THEM. THE "REVIEW" [of
the other Goals] IS A
PHENOMENON THAT WE BELIEVE TO BE UNIVERSAL IN
THE OLDER CYCLES. WE SEE THIS
IN ALL OF YOU, BUT FAR MORE PRONOUNCED IN THOSE
IN GROWTH. THIS ENDLESS
SEARCHING OFTEN PRODUCES BOTH ACCEPTANCE AND
SUBMISSION; THEN WHEN THE FLASH
[of insight] COMES, THE STUDENT IN GROWTH OFTEN
BECOMES TEMPORARILY DOMINANT
IN ORDER TO SPREAD THE WORD HE HAS RECEIVED.
THIS IS ENTIRELY NATURAL.
CAN YOU NOW SEE A CORRELATION BETWEEN THE CHIEF
FEATURE AND THE GOAL? VANITY
AND ARROGANCE ARE BOTH CHIEF FEATURES FOUND IN
DOMINANT SOULS. [Actually,
Arrogance correlates with Growth, and Impatience
correlates with Dominance.]
I am trying to synthesize the material, and I
have thought of people in each
Role, and I classify them. I find that I have a
hatred toward Dominant
Warriors. I am attracted to female Kings, but do
not care for male Kings in
Dominance. I am attracted to Sages, neutral
toward Priests and Artisans, and
look down on Slaves.
THERE IS A NATURAL AFFINITY FOR THE ORDINAL AND
EXALTED [Cardinal] ROLES:
I.E., SAGES AND ARTISANS ARE GENERALLY ATTRACTED
TO ONE ANOTHER, AS ARE
PRIESTS AND SLAVES, WARRIORS AND KINGS. THESE
ROLES NATURALLY COMPLEMENT
EACH OTHER, AND GOOD TEAMWORK CAN RESULT. THE
SAME GOES FOR THE
[complementery] GOALS [and other Overleaves].
THE GENDER [distinction]
SHOULD BE NEGATED [as you grow spiritually].
I would like to ask for a comment on my hatred
for Dominant Warriors, and
anything on the synthesis for Acceptance and
THIS WOULD REPRESENT A MAJOR PART OF FRICTION
FOR YOU, AS YOU SEE IN THEM
ALL THOSE TRAITS YOU ENDEAVOR TO ERADICATE FROM
YOUR OWN LIFE. ONLY BY
UNDERSTANDING THAT WARRIORS IN THE EARLIER
CYCLES ARE PRETTY MUCH A VICTIM
OF THEIR KARMIC RIBBONS — AND WILL BE UNTIL THEY
MEET WITH A TEACHING — THEN
YOU CAN APPLY THE SAME PRINCIPLE OF
UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE THAT YOU MUST
WITH ALL OTHERS. IN PERCEIVING THE SYNTHESIS,
THIS ACCEPTANCE IS IMPERATIVE.
Have I been through all of the Goals in my past
YES. YOU ALL HAVE.
Are these Goals chosen in any special order?
NOT NECESSARILY. IT DEPENDS LARGELY UPON THE
KARMA INCURRED DURING THE
PHYSICAL INTERVAL. FOR INSTANCE, A MALE DOMINANT
KING CAN BE A BENIGN LEADER
AND INCUR NO ADVERSE KARMA.
I would like to ask about a friend's dream for
her which she told me about
today. She said it was so real and that she felt
she had lived at that time.
She was an emperor's wife. They had a child, and
people were coming to kill
them. The child tried to escape and immediately
disappeared. Her husband
tried to tell her that it was impossible to
escape. She really wanted to
know about the dream since it seemed different
than others and was so real
in the castles, etc.
THIS WAS IN PART REAL AND IN PART EMBELLISHMENT.
THIS YOUNG LADY HAS MANY
EXPERIENCES BOTTLED UP, SCREAMING TO BE FREE,
BUT THERE IS FEAR OF SUCH
MAGNITUDE THAT IT HOLDS HER BACK. SHE SHOULD BE
ENCOURAGED TO LET IT HAPPEN.
THIS DREAM WILL RECUR WITH MORE CLARITY, BUT SHE
WILL NO DOUBT BLOCK IT.
Could she do anything to not block it?
[She could] ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE DREAM
EXPERIENCE CAN DO HER NO HARM. IT HAS
ALREADY HAPPENED TO HER [in a past lifetime].
I read Robert Monroe's book, Journeys Out of the
Body, and I found I have
had similar experiences. They are scary. I've
had those "vibrations", and I
could not move.
MANY TRAVELERS DO EXPERIENCE THESE PHENOMENA
PRIOR TO LEAVING (the body). IF
THERE IS FEAR, THEN THE TRIP IS POSTPONED.
ASTRAL TRAVEL IS SOMETHING YOU
MUST DESIRE IN ORDER FOR IT TO CONTINUE,
ALTHOUGH IT IS WELL WITHIN THE
GRASP OF YOU ALL.
It is like they are calling me and I'm afraid to
MANY ARE [calling you]. YOU ARE RIGHT IN THIS
I would like to ask where cravings come from. My
wife has it together, but
every once in awhile she will eat two whole bags
of potato chips then diet
the next day to make up for it. What are
CRAVINGS ARE SOLELY EMOTIONAL. MOVING CENTERED
INDIVIDUALS GIVE IN TO FOOD
CRAVINGS ON THE WHOLE LESS THAN EMOTIONALLY
CENTERED SOULS; BUT IT IS ONE
WAY THAT THEY HAVE TO EXPRESS AN EMOTION THAT
THEY ARE AFRAID OF AND CANNOT
EXPRESS THROUGH THE NORMAL CHANNELS. WE SEE THIS
MORE IN THOSE IN REJECTION
GOALS, WHO OFTEN BECOME MASSIVELY OBESE. YOUR
WIFE WOULD NEVER CARRY IT THAT
FAR SINCE SHE KNOWS THAT THAT WOULD MAKE HER
There was a discussion here concerning wanting
having nothing to do with
unexpressed emotions -- a person has to unravel
the conflict he has. A
person in the Rejection Goal works toward that
rejection. One of those
present did not see obesity as the result of a
OBESITY RESULTS FROM SEXUAL CONFLICTS, THE GOAL
OF REJECTION, OR CULTURAL
DIET (pasta and spaghetti).
Can Intellectually Centered people be obese? Are
most people who are obese,
THEY COULD, BUT THE FRAMEWORK USUALLY ONLY
STRETCHES SO FAR, AND EMOTIONALLY
CENTERED SOULS HAVE MORE FRAMEWORK TO WORK WITH.
YES, ALL JOKING ASIDE, MOST
OBESE SOULS ARE EMOTIONALLY CENTERED.
I had a strong "Soleal presence" feeling this
afternoon and would like a
IT IS PARTIALLY VALID. YOU WERE NOT SUFFICIENTLY
RELAXED TO DESTROY YOUR OWN
BIAS. YOU WERE QUITE ANGRY THIS EVENING. WE
SUGGEST THAT YOU TRY TO DISCOVER
THE SOURCE OF THIS ANGER. THE SOURCE CAN BE
DECEPTIVE, AND, OF COURSE, THIS
TEACHING IS MOVING TOWARD THE UNDERSTANDING OF
THESE HOSTILE EMANATIONS.
I had a dream, and twenty minutes later it came
true. Could I have a
THIS PHENOMENON IS CALLED PRECOGNITION. QUITE
OFTEN IT COMES IN THE FORM OF
A DREAM, SINCE THAT MODE IS ACCEPTABLE.
We also discussed the potential commune property
we looked at in Grant's
Pass, Oregon. With the energy crisis, it was
suggested that Grant's Pass was
too far away for those who were not ready yet to
follow the teaching there.
An intermediate spot closer was suggested, such
as "just out of Vacaville".
The ranch was said to be a long-term goal. It
was suggested we rent nearby
so that those who could retire and give
evolution full time, could, and
those who wished to work part time, could.
WE CAN TOSS OUT A FEW MORE SUGGESTIONS WHICH
WOULD LEAD TO COMMUNAL LIVING.
THERE ARE TWO OTHER POWER SPOTS WITHIN THIS
AREA: LAKE TAHOE IS ONE; BIG SUR
IS ANOTHER. THERE ARE RESORTS AND MOTELS FOR
SALE, AND THEY ARE SEASONAL IN
USE [to produce income for you]. THERE ARE
STABLES AVAILABLE, ALSO.
I would like to know the Goal of David Hume (the
DAVID'S (Goal) WAS GROWTH.
Could you comment on karma?
THE STRESS IS A PART OF KARMA ALSO.
I would like to ask why in my own personal life
I tend to date older men. I
am 27 and the men I date are usually 10 years
older than that.
WE SEE IT AS A COMFORT FACTOR. YOU DO NOT LIKE
COMPETITIVE MALES IN
DOMINANCE. THERE IS A SAFETY FACTOR IN THAT YOU
ALSO KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE
MORE DIGNITY IN THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE EVENING,
AND LESS OF A CHANCE THAT
YOU WILL BE ASKED TO DO SOMETHING "RIDICULOUS".
OF COURSE, WE KNOW OF SOME
FORTY YEAR OLDS WHO MISBEHAVE SOCIALLY WITH MUCH
MORE ALACRITY THAN
Things are happening so rapidly. Many changes
are occurring. I made a New
Year's resolution and kept it one day: that was
to get up at 2:00 AM and
meditate. Are there any suggestions for
improving the meditation?
INTERRUPTING NEEDED SLEEP TO MEDITATE IS NOT
EVOLUTIONARY — IT WOULD NOT
WORK. EARLY MORNING WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE. YOU
ARE MOVING RAPIDLY. THIS
WILL EVEN ACCELERATE MORE IN THE COMING TWO
WEEKS. BE PREPARED FOR SOME
RADICAL CHANGES WITHIN. YOU ARE NOW ABLE TO
HANDLE SOME FAIRLY WIDE LEAPS.
QUIET ACTIVITY (after meditation is suggested).
IF YOU ARE GOING TO PURSUE
THE BROKEN SLEEP PATTERN, YOU MUST DO IT WITH
Is Erhard Sensitivity Training ["EST"] to
precipitate these radical changes
THAT WILL PROBABLY BE PRETTY CATALYTIC.
I would like to ask more questions on the books
about the Masters of the Far
East, by Thomas Spaulding, whom I've asked about
before. I've read four of
the five volumes now. There is good teaching
information there. He said he
was talking in person to Jesus and Mohammed and
other old souls. He went to
Asia, Tibet, in the early l900's or late 1800's,
where he was taught to
teleport. I would like a comment and also to ask
if he really was talking to
Jesus and Mohammed as he implied.
THE HIGH MENTAL BODY SPENDS TIME WITH ALL
ADEPTS. SOME SEE THE INFINITE SOUL
IN SEVERAL TRANSCENDENTAL FORMS. THIS IS USUALLY
BECAUSE THE PERCEPTIONS OF
PHYSICALLY TIED ADEPTS IS NOT KEEN ENOUGH TO
PERCEIVE THAT MUCH OF THE
SYNTHESIS. THEY, LIKE SOME OF YOU, SEE THE
REINTEGRATION AS LOSS OF SELF AND
BEMOAN THIS. HE SAW HIS OWN PERCEPTION OF THE
FRAGMENTATION OF THE INFINITE
I have been reading Robert Monroe's book,
Journeys Out of the Body. His
trips were nothing at all like a synthesis. He
saw subhuman, fish-like
creatures, nothing like Michael describes. I
would like a comment on that,
and also one on what Monroe describes as "sex
after death" — that he
describes as male and female "zapping" together,
not with organs but
ASTRAL MATTER IS EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE —
"MALLEABLE" IS A BETTER TERM. YOU CAN
DO WITH IT AS YOU LIKE. AS FOR THE ECSTATIC
FEELINGS, THAT IS THE GOAL
TOWARD WHICH WE WORK. HE WOULD HAVE TO CALL IT
"SEXUAL" SINCE THIS IS THE
ONLY EXPLANATION AVAILABLE TO HIM.
Have you ever meditated on astral material?
THERE ARE MANY TROUBLED SOULS ON THE LOW ASTRAL
PLANE, AND CONTACT WITH THEM
IS OFTEN DISTURBING, EVEN TO THE ADEPTS WHO
TRAVEL THERE. FOR INSTANCE, MOST
BABY SOULS CONTINUE TO THINK OF THEMSELVES AS
"DEAD" UNTIL THEY TAKE ANOTHER
BODY, AND THE ASTRAL FORM THEY ADOPT IS OFTEN
GRUESOME. SOME OLD SOULS PLAY
OUT A PARTICULARLY REMEMBERED LIFE OVER AND
OVER, COMPLETE WITH COSTUMES,
AND OFTEN STARTLE TRAVELERS NOT PREPARED FOR
Can Michael help us in the Monroe out-of-body
experience so that we won't
have contact with the peculiar fish-like
creatures or whatever?
YES, [we] CAN HELP, BUT ONLY IF YOUR SENSE OF
PREORDAINED FAILURE CAN
SOMEHOW BE DISSIPATED.
What is there to account for the belligerent
streak in myself which
manifests upon occasion?
THIS IS NOT AN UNUSUAL PHENOMENON FOR SOMEONE IN
GROWTH. YOU ARE VERY
IMPATIENT ABOUT YOUR SPIRITUALITY, AND THE ONLY
TIME YOU ARE BELLIGERENT IS
WHEN SOMEONE INTERRUPTS YOUR CONNECTION, OR
PLUGS THE MUNDANE INTO THE
In reading the notes [transcriptions of previous
sessions], I am confused
and would like some clarification on Dominant
and Submissive Goals.
THE GOAL OF DOMINANCE SUGGESTS THAT THE SOUL
INVOLVED WILL TEND TO TRY TO
DOMINATE ALL LIFE SITUATIONS. IT IS MUCH DEEPER
THAN THIS, HOWEVER, AND
RESULTS IN FRUSTRATION IF THE OPPORTUNITY DOES
NOT PRESENT ITSELF IN THE
EARLIER CYCLES. THIS RESULTS IN WARS AND OTHER
CONTROVERSIES OF A SERIOUS
NATURE. THE GOALS ARE INTIMATELY LINKED WITH THE
ROLES, SO THAT A DOMINANT
KING NEEDS SUBJECTS TO RULE; THE DOMINANT SAGE
REQUIRES AN AUDIENCE; THE
DOMINANT SCHOLAR, A GROUP OF STUDENTS; THE
DOMINANT SLAVE, A WILLING MASTER.
SOME OF THE MOST FLAGRANT SADOMASOCHISTIC
RELATIONSHIPS ARE ENGINEERED BY
DOMINANT MATURE SLAVES.
THE GOAL OF SUBMISSION SUGGESTS THAT THE SOUL
INVOLVED WILL PERFORM MANY
TASKS WHERE NO INNER DESIRE EXISTS, REGARDLESS
OF HOW DISTASTEFUL THEY MAY
BE TO THE SOUL, AS HE SEES IT, AS HIS ROLE IN
LIFE [is] TO SUBMIT TO THE
POWERFUL FORCES PINNING HIM TO THESE
CIRCUMSTANCES. FORBEARANCE IS ONE OF
THE HALLMARKS OF THIS GOAL. MANY WILL BEAR THEIR
BURDENS IN VIRTUAL SILENCE
SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT IT IS BEYOND THEM
TO CHANGE THEIR LOT, OR THAT
THE LOSSES THEY MIGHT SUFFER FOR THEIR
EMANCIPATION WOULD NOT BE WORTH THE
GAIN IN INDEPENDENCE.
