[Question] Hello Michael, I know that several of us here today are Cadre 1 Entity 2, could you elaborate on how this cadre/entity is manifesting itself, what we are teaching in our current global community?
[Michael Entity] Cadre 1, Entity 2 appears to be manifesting itself, as usual, in the struggle and implementation of Stability over Balance. Nearly every fragment from that Entity over the physical age of 20 has “pulled back from life” in a way that is figuratively holding Balance in one hand, and Stability in the other. All Entity 2s struggle within the spectrum between Balance and Stability, and eventually the Entity, collectively, “gets it” and a wave of realization moves among the members.
Currently, the majority of Entity 2 members of Cadre 1 appear to be in a state of limbo, unsure of how to go forward with Stability in “the real world.” Withdrawing from life, so to speak, has given the glimpses of Stability that can now begin to make sense as feasible. How to bring that back out into the world of “living life” still escapes most of the members currently exploring this.
What most Entity 2 members learn to do is the equivalent of placing two feet on a plank of wood that rests on a ball, teetering and rocking and rolling on that ball, feet planted squarely, and as long as one does not fall, it passes as Stability.
However, all energy goes into just staying atop the ball, and this tends to be exhausting, and most eventually “fall” (get ill, have an accident, move into crisis) as a means to just get some rest, because despite the fact that those experiences are often traumatic, they at least offer a stability that is not a part of life when balancing atop the ball.
Stability is when the ball is removed, and both feet are, figuratively. on solid ground.
We describe this to you as a process, and not as one way being better than another. Many Entity 2 members will gladly state how exciting the Balance on the ball can be, and the “falling off” gives life meaning.
Balance is a state that requires division within for the sake of managing the life. Stability is when the life comes into a state of wholeness that does not require compartmentalization, division, juggling, etc.
We know many members of Entity 2 are extremists. Extremism is a form of Balance, going from one extreme to another on a regular basis. All or Nothing. Eventually the realization comes that life does not have to be “all or nothing.”
This spectrum of manifestation described for Entity 2 is not unfamiliar to many fragments who are not a part of an Entity 2, so this information may be applicable to you, regardless of your Entity number. However, our descriptions for Entity themes do describe the inherent, condensed, and consistent priorities of an Entity within a Cadre.
Entity 2 of Cadre 1 is currently themed in the reality and implementation of “growing up,” or being a “grown up,” regardless of the age of the Personality. Stability, “growing up,” and manifesting Soul Age, which has regularly been equated with something akin to death for many in Entity 2, is now starting to be seen as something appealling, even if that appeal is confusing.
The teachings of Entity 2, then, could be described as themed in “how to sustain and nurture innocence and joy along with the process of maturing.”
