[Question] What is meditation? Is it just silencing the internal chattering, or is something else involved? I recently had some personal advice in meditation from Michael, but trying to follow it, I started wondering what meditation actually is.
[Michael Entity] From our perspective, “meditation” is a word to describe the work through a triad that leads to adaptable balancing among all centers. This triad could be described as: EXAMINATION, IMPLEMENTATION, REALIZATION. We will describe this in detail now.

[S99] A philosopher is asking the question: What is it to be an I? Why would someone ask this question, and is there an answer from your perspective?
[Michael_Entity] This is another attempt within the Human Context to make complexities out of simplicity. There is value in asking this question and this event has done more to spark this question for OTHERS than it will accomplish as an experiment in and of itself. Why someone would ask this…? We all ask this at some point. It just doesn’t usually come with a financial grant. On a minor level this fragment stands more for the “permission” to ask this than anything.

[Question] Hello Troy/Michael entity. I have a three part question that hopefully will be beneficial to the whole group. I had a personal experience not too long ago with the drug Salvia Divinorum. It is said that drugs like Salvia D and DMT take you to a “different dimension” and I was wondering what happened to me/where I went in my Salvia D experience, how exactly these type of drugs work, and if Michael believes these types of drugs (Salvia D and DMT) are beneficial to aid in the process of “spiritual awakening” because my experience with Salvia D definitely sent me down a path towards my current spiritual awakenings and also to the Michael Teachings. =)

[Kieran] Would the teaching of a simple core speaking language (one exists) make a big difference in breaking down cultural barriers and misunderstandings world wide?
[M_Entity] Yes, of course. This does not usually occur as a World Truth until the latter part of a Mature Soul Age. Until that time, the focus is from a stronger Young Soul influence on maintaining “culture,” “heritage,” “history,” and “tradition.”

[faldec] I recently wrote a paper for an English class. In it I was discussing racism in America, a subject I particularly dislike. It occurred to me writing the paper that it is all related to choice and that many people would choose the relatively “easier” path of sticking with other fragments that are at least superficially the same then to build relationships with those who are different. Again, all being chosen. What is your view on this?

[ksh] Could Michael tell me if big sugar and simple starch intakes affects my body?
[Michael_Entity] Yes, of course this affects your body.
[ksh] In what way. Am I more sensitive than others are?
[Michael_Entity] It is sometimes an examination method through food that allows the body to accommodate more of your energy fluctuations as they arise. In some instances the body is INFLUENCED by external stimuli that then affects the more subtle emotional and energetic qualities of the Personality; in other cases, the body SEEKS stimulants that allow the body expression of the internal energetic fluctuations.

[Question] my question relates to earth history; let me type it in here: we are in the 4th world- and; it would seem that is about information; how quickly will we move into a 5th world; can the earth history; sort of be related to the 1-2-3-4-5-6-7; assuming the 3rd world ended with pan, or pan-gaia maybe 750,000 years ago; is the 4th world – related to the role of scholar in some way; where we are at; in this 4th cycle- does earth move through stages- like roles ? it appears many are becoming verbal – like sage role flowing through all the fragments on earth – it appears; maybe earth follows this sequencing and, advanced math; shows we have a little bit; of all of it, in all of our makeups; does earth have a chart; of some kind – a collective grouping of advanced math of all who choose to be here, in any particular moment of a now?

[Question] On a lighter note, I recently (12 weeks ago) had a child. What general recommendations can you provide on raising children?
[Michael Entity] There is a multitude of responses we could share for that question. For simplistic purposes, we will share three key considerations:
1. One can never give too much constructive, positive attention and affection to an infant, toddler, or teen. Their cries, tantrums, and rebellions are not power plays, but relevant methods for communicating need, want, and pain, however inconvenient those may be.

[Leela] Can you please comment on the origins of what is now known as “belly dance”? By origins, I mean both geographically/culturally, and spiritual; I feel that this dance is very powerful and meaningful. What were its original purposes? Is it true that it was partially used for childbirth rituals?
[M_Entity] This dance has its origins from more than is considered now, though its more traceable roots can be seen to reach into the history of what is called the Middle East or Orient. We have seen this dance as being prehistory, being a form of varying forms of power during a period on Earth when women ruled.
