[Excerpt from TT: 2009-05-10]
[luluaussi] hello Michaels. in regard to the approaching nexus: It seems that fear and greed is running neck and neck during these economic times with events such as the bulldozing of foreclosure properties in California which seem not only wasteful but without any real thought to “creating” only destroying …could you comment on this in terms of the upcoming Nexus….does the radical restructuring of the global economy and our connections to each other, how people view their participation in this process come into play with the new platform?
[Michael Entity] In terms relative to the upcoming Nexus and these situations that seem to indicate such destructive factors and forces, the Nexus toward the end of the month may actually bring about some relief, as it appears to be a movement toward generating realities of solutions, choices, and footing. However, in the larger scheme of things, this force of destruction is, so far, a result of resistance by Baby and Young to the Mature Soul paradigm. However painfully or dramatically the evolution moves, we do not see many probabilities where a new paradigm of Resource-Based Economy does not take root in your world..
[luluaussi] how can we proceed to as older souls to navigate through these times most effectively
[Michael Entity] The loss of so much property, prosperity, and the experience of this being in the hands of forces beyond those of “the people” is no longer of interest to your average level of sentience.
[Geraldine] My observation is that most old souls were likely least affected by much of the economic turmoil as they are less material-oriented
[fiestycappy78] that is certainly true in my case. I had nothing to lose!
[Michael Entity] What we would suggest for the Older Soul as a means to navigate what might seem to be the tougher, challenging times of your economy and society is for the Older Soul to choose the higher perspective of trust in the evolution of your species as a whole, which is in evidence at every turn, despite the media emphasis on the more entertaining snags and dragging of feet, as well as a focus on how to increase the joy in your own life as a means to be a source of what you might consider to be a “positive force” in your world.
[Geraldine] me, too — I already was at the bottom due to early parts of the turmoil a few years ago — and had already changed my perspective — my volunteering will continue
[luluaussi] ah ….you have indicated to me earlier that my own platform choices have been about balance between responsibility and playfulness I can see where this makes sense
[Michael Entity] It is true that many of our Older Students see the impending changes and “destruction” as something that is happening “out there,” in much the same way that the parent may see the growing pains of a teen, doing all one can to encourage a healthy direction, but knowing that the teen will do what he will do to learn.
