[Excerpt from TT: 2011-07-10]
[AnnH] I’ve been observing a great deal of divisiveness on many different levels. In the US overall, on my job (administration vs. faculty/staff), among friends, and in the MT community. Is this the tidy up from the June platform, or the movement into Pragmatist in July (sliding to Skeptic/Cynic), or just what I’m focused on?
[MEntity] The emphasis of collective energy has shifted toward the Attitude of the year, which we see as Pragmatist. The first phases of emphasis tend to bring up the Negative Pole, and in this case, issues relative to perspectives rooted in Dogma are going to surface.
The means through which to secure Dogma appear to be through the use of Cynicism and Skepticism, as Pragmatist perspectives slide into those.
This means that some securing of Dogma will come in the form of Denigration and Suspicion.
This is being played out currently in the United States over the “debt ceiling” and the divisive dogmatic maneuvers of those involved with that.
In short: it is “not you.” It is the world, in general, and everyone who is participating in the world in any way is going to find exposure to their own, or others’, Dogma.
The moment you notice another person or group as having a problem with their perspective because of their strict adherence to one acceptable pattern, we would suggest, first, exploring whether this is noticed for the sake of bringing to light your own Dogmas.
That is not always the case, of course, but it is a healthy pause to make in the process of interpretation.
We will have more to say about this, and suggestions for solutions, when Troy posts our Energy Report.
