[Excerpt from TT: 2008-12-14]
[Ladislaus] Michael, I have a seemingly frivolous question. Humans like to party. To drink, dance, socialize, throwing balls and masquerades, playing party games, go to cocktail parties, discos, formal dinners, etc.
From whence comes this party-impulse? Is is just a marginal break from more heavy and important things, a way of “taking a rest” and recuperate? Or is is in itself something central and important? That is my question.
[Michael Entity] As the soul evolves, it continues to have access to all levels and ages accumulated by that soul. One of the first realms of experience gained by Essence [is] in the realm of dance, altered states, celebration, lack of inhibition, and tribal rituals. At whatever Soul Age one is, this level of self is drawn from the Infant Soul aspects of your history and experience.
In this same way, the Older souls draw from the Baby Soul Age experiences to sustain civility and law and order; the Young Soul Age to be able to HAVE and contribute and compete; the Mature Soul Age for sensitive empathy and activism and self-awareness.
The older one’s soul gets, the more one begins to utilizing these levels and ages appropriate to current choices, circumstances, and contexts.
It is Good Work for the Older Soul to let down his or her hair and dance with the Infant Soul inside, so to speak.
And it is true that, for some, this is a method for “taking a rest” and “recuperating,” because this is a return to the nurturing force from which you spring, finding yourself back in the safety of the womb, figuratively speaking, and embracing the validity of your right to BE. The Right to feeling REAL.
For some, it can be used as an escape, of course, but it is also a valid direction for embracing the deepest sense of presence one can have as a Physical Being.
We have never been ones to encourage the denial of this level of your experience. It makes little sense to us to deny the very foundation upon which every other important structure and meaning is built.
To return to that part of you is to check in on your foundations and correct any shifts.
