[Dewliet] Hi Michael. Would you please discuss the concept of “missing” other people (i.e. “longing for”) as it relates to overleaves, soul age, etc.? I seem to have kind of an “out of sight, out of mind” attitude and never really “miss” anyone, no matter how much I love them — this goes for my husband and kids, parents, everybody. I was wondering if this is likely a function of overleaves or some combination of CF and false personality.

[Azure9] Since there was a mention of going into passion around the 20th of this month, I was wondering if that would effect more violence in the world at large? Say like in springtime school violence seems to happen here in the USA.
[Michael_Entity] This is a valid observation, but violence is not related to Passion exclusively. Most violence is Instinctive Centered in actualization though, for example “Instinctive Part of the Moving Center” or “Instinctive Part of the Intellectual Center”. Considering Passion and the Instinctive together, there is a high possibility, but we don’t see the emphasis being there.

We will begin with the Energy Report as requested. This is our perspective of the collective patterns in consciousness generated by collective choices and attitudes over a specific period of time.

[meredith k] This is my real question anyway. Am I in love, lust , friendship, commitmentphobia, delusion, nostalgia, politics, false hope or all of the above with said person. To make it general, how can we tell what is what better in interpersonal relationships? What is weird is that I have danced with him before, in this life, and he feels like a woman in a man’s body to me, which I like. So I also think in some way we are working on healing or homophobia, so who knows. You guys?

[Rivrbird] Michael, would you give an example of an area where majority opinion will seem exactly counter to our own perceptions in such a way that we would be shocked or disoriented?
[Michael_Entity] We know of at least two fragments in this “room” who are surrounded by charismatic, social, affectionate, and warm Personalities. Upon prompting, these very same warm fragments express strong opinions and hostile stances against the Rights of anyone beyond Christianity or Heterosexuality. That captures the most common means of these surprising differences to be displayed. Many Old and Mature Souls will find that the very people with whom they have bonded or gained warm acquaintances have quite startlingly opposing viewpoints that are now being encouraged by media and political hype.

[Meredith k] I am having trouble getting along with younger souls, mostly around the area of projections, as I see it. I experience younger souls as blaming outer circumstances. I get so defensive. How not to take this so personally and be so upset? Often, in my “karmic relationship” If the “I” language is too personal, then, how to find peace with younger/different souls?
[Michael Entity] One method of relating to Younger Souls is to actually embody and use the perception that you wish to impose on those Younger Souls. In that embodiment, there is an ironic freedom and adaptability that will be developed. In other words, you are doing to the Younger Souls what you are so annoyed with in them: Blaming.

[Dewliet] Can “romantic” relationships form between incarnate fragments and discarnates they encounter on the astral? If so, how might this manifest in the waking hours for the incarnate individual?
[Michael_Entity] Yes, these can occur, and do, for many late mature and old souls. The “romance” aspect is the Personality’s interpretation of this less-convoluted resonance [meaning, without bodies and personalities interfering between the two], but this interpretation is nearly impossible to remove from the equation.

[Cathy] If I have a special relationship with someone, in this case, with my friend, Frazer, does this indicate an agreement, or task companion, or are some friendships that seem special just a friendship? Are all friendships agreements, or task companions, or essence twins or some such category?

[slacnj] My question if you can answer it with a short answer is: When what you want involves another person making a choice how can you learn to either manifest that together or allow what you want into your life some other way?
[M Entity] The first choice to make above all choices in this instance is to choose to trust, honor, and allow the choice of another, even if it does not comply with your own.
Community is a unique experience of the Physical Plane, defined by natural or chosen resonance and attraction to each other, which is based in many different ways, and sealed by recognition. Below is a map of the contexts with which we define that resonance and attraction. These Circles extend like concentric circles from the fragment and overlap with other people and their Circles.
“True Community” requires physical contact in some way, to some degree, and all of these circles reflect that standard. The farther out the circle, the less confined that physical contact is to a single lifetime.
