[MEntity] We will respond now to the question from Nicholas.
[NicholasBabylove] what is the “easiest” way we older souls can create/allow more money into our lives? Is the lack of money even though we have tons of intelligence/talents/skills just something we choose to deal with…and we tend to leave it at that? I know it’s different for each of us, but I’d like some kind of suggestion that might touch on all oldies generally… or, the oldie students…
[MEntity] The concept of having to funnel one’s talents and skills into something that can be monetarily valuable is not complicated or difficult for the older soul to implement, but when those talents and skills must conform to a younger paradigm, it can be complicated and difficult.
The older soul would benefit from fully embracing whatever older soul talents and skills he or she may have, and then complementing that with younger soul packaging.
The gift inside is what matters, if you will, but packaging is important in the current paradigm. Some of the most useless and detrimental products and services are eagerly purchased in the current paradigm, due to packaging.
So our first suggestion is to give great priority to “packaging,” as the talents and skills are natural, and while they require their own kind of nurturing, it is the packaging that is often neglected.
This neglect of packaging is because the older the soul grows, the more integrity the Personalities tend to have. And for the older soul, the skew between “Presentation” and “Content” can seem great, when it comes to catering to a younger paradigm.
But it is key.
To sanctimoniously neglect your younger soul skills for packaging and presentation would be similar to a teacher in grade school refusing to “talk down” to her students. It does not have to mean a degradation of content, nor a skew away from integrity, but a matter of translation.
We do not speak to you in a way that we speak to each other, for instance. We must package our teaching in a way that allows you to grow with what we share.
And so it is for the older soul to realize: that what you have to give, to share, to use for profit or nourishment, must be translated through a medium that can allow for reception.
After Packaging would be Paralleling, if you will. By this we mean that you will find your niche receivers that have no need for a translation of what you have to give, and this can be done alongside the packaging, so that both facets of you are fulfilled.
One does not have to replace the other.
The third consideration is Practicality. You must feed and clothe yourself along the way toward gaining your footing with what you truly prefer to use as your means of income. Working the jobs that you do not like would do well to be seen as simply a part of the dynamic ways that you provide love for yourself and your life.
Again, one does not have to replace the other. It is okay to be mundane.
The lack of money in the older souls’ lives is not a matter of any lessons needing to be learned, but a result of choices that prefer minimalism over the demands of complexity.
Most older souls have learned how to work the system, so to speak, of the Physical Plane in a way that never leaves them in true danger, but allows them to “get by” as they tend to more important experiential matters.
Many older souls would “trade the world” for the intimacy, friendship, love, honesty, kindness, peace, etc that life offers.
Older souls can be wealthy, and often quite easily, but those factors mentioned above would probably need to be considered more seriously, and then the final concern: letting people do with your talents and skills what they will.
For instance, the packaging of some old soul concepts, such as “The Secret,” gained great notoriety and profit, but we could say that most gained nothing from the information.
Not because the information was invalid, though it was severely compromised, but because people will do with what you offer, what they will.
We must have the same concept intact for us to share with you: we would say that only 25% of our active students actually “hear” us in a way that is truly meaningful, and even fewer apply the teachings in a way that proves meaningful results.
But this cannot be a reason for us not to share.
True sharing, whether with a price or for “free,” is never without profit.
So our sharing with you our teaching is as much for US, as it is for you; this means whatever you do with what we share, we still gain.
And so it is with your talents and skills: you would want to share those with the intent of True Sharing, in that you own the vital element that is the pleasure you gain from it.
True Sharing is mutually beneficial.
However, the only one in the equation of sharing that you have control over is you, and so to set the standard for sharing to be that you actually enjoy it, then the sharing is True.
[Bobby2] From your perspective, what exactly was the “Ark of the Covenant” as mentioned in our Old Testament? Was it some piece of advanced technology? If so, what were its capabilities? Does it still exist?
[MEntity] We think that this is a reference to an energy source that was not fully understood by most, and because of its rather dangerous effects upon those in proximity, it was guarded quite well. We would not call it “advanced” technology, though from the current understanding of Earth history, it would seem so.
[Bobby2] Was it nuclear?
[MEntity] We do not think it still exists, as it was either an energy source that collapsed and dissipated over time, or was returned to the non-terrestrials who originally offered it.
Its capabilities were equivalent to nuclear energy, but without the concern that nuclear energy presents in terms of toxic wastes and heats. However, a kind of radiation was a concern to those within proximity.
[Oscar] Hey Mikeys =) I would like to know if the Universe is finite or infinite. And if it’s finite, what is beyond it(s borders)? And beyond the borders of that, etc.
[MEntity] We are still exploring this question, ourselves, but what we know is: from “within” a universe, it is infinite in terms of experiences and perceptions, much the way one might experience the inside of a mirrored sphere; that universes must be finite beyond experiences and perceptions that we can comprehend, because we know there are completely separate universes “stacked” around our own; that while there is a definitive, Physical, or densest, component to the universe, the degree to which it grows finer is still unknown to us; that, so far, we can compare the universe to the same spectrum that makes up any single consciousness: while there are physical counterparts, the emotional and intellectual dynamics that are in place to generate those physical counterparts are very difficult to quantify, and therefore, so are the borders of a universe, as we also do not know how to show the edges of a thought or an emotion.
To be more direct: we think the universe is finite, but exists within an infinity. Or put another way: what we know of as “the universe,” even in our delineation of all of its layers and planes, is but a counterpart of an even greater whole that we have yet to comprehend.
[Martha] At Claymont, JP said something about the first 100 cadres or entities, and the last 100, would stay here for the duration of our species’ incarnations. Not every single fragment or entity within each 100, but that the first and last 100 had committed to staying around. Do you agree? And if so can you elaborate on it?
[MEntity] We would agree. Though this does not mean a limitation to the incarnational process of the Physical Plane, but includes all lower planes. Those of us from “the beginning” and “the end” of the count for Sentience to this Design will be supporting, teaching, and even incarnating “somewhere” within the Physical, Astral, or Causal Planes.
We will be “here” even as the last of Human Sentience completes its last life.
[Brian_W] In a previous time it was mentioned that “Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for “extra-sensory” perceptions.” Could you please comment on how we may better use and understand our own imaginations and dreams, differentiate them from delusion, and use them to create new options for choices in this world / parallel?
[MEntity] The key to the refinement and use of Imagination as a valid resource for creating new options and choices is through the process of Validation.
Imagination will include a spectrum from the greatest potential to the greatest delusion.
Validation is the process of measuring a new feeling, thought, or action against an established feeling, thought, or action.
Internal Validation is vital for helping one to build his or her Personal Philosophies (truths), Relationships (loves), and Health (energy). External Validation is vital for helping one to share his or her Personal Truths, Relationships, and Health/Energy.
True Validation is when both the Inner and Outer Validations coincide.
Because Imagination is unlimited, the use of it can be a wonderful and dangerous process.
We will say that as long as your Imagination must be kept to yourself in order to be “true,” then it is probably leaning toward Delusion, and away from Potential.
We will say that as long as the majority of feedback from your outer world is contradictory to your Imagination, then it is, at least, still potential, which includes potentially delusional.
One can see why this can be “tricky,” as one fragment full of potential may have surrounded oneself with fragments who challenge the Imagination, in general, and this can lead to questioning or rejecting one’s Imagination, while another fragment might be completely delusional and supported by many.
However, we can say that the more one finds his or her footing in validating the Imagination, both internally and externally, the more one moves away from delusion.
We will say that a safe equation might be that one who has not validated the potential of the Imagination within, will either find oneself surrounded by rejection of the potential, or support for the delusional.
We must conclude our time through Troy here.
