The 9 Pillars or “Trues”

The 9 Pillars aka “trues”

Many of you have heard “True Work (Life Task);” “True Play;” True Rest;” and “True Study.” These are known as the 4 “Pillars of Vitality.” They create a quadrant. These were the most immediately applicable for most of our students once there is comprehension of the Overleaves. In fact, none of the “trues” are very practical if the Overleaves are not validated, accurate, and understood.

True Work, or the Life Task, is the core of each Quadrant. This is because the Life Task is anchored to the Goal for the life in the Overleaves and its fulfillment pulls from all layers and dimensions of the Personality, Essence, and Life. The initial triad of Play, Rest, and Study is the first ring of support for the Life Task or Goal of the life, creating the most immediate quadrant.

True Work and Life Task can be used interchangeably, though some of our channels and students prefer differentiating the two. True Work is a listing of suggestions for how to fulfill the Life Task through action, but these suggestions often work against the idea of the Life Task because the list is taken literally and is often given as various occupations. All suggestions for any “True” are meant as just that, suggestions, and not as a limited list of assignments.

All “Trues” are relative to the current Personality and its relationship with Essence, Others, and Life. “Trues” are not static, even within a lifetime. “Trues” are assessed as a collection of factors that include the history of Essence in other Bodies (past lives), the original intent of the Essence for the lifetime, and the current intent of the Personality. Considering all of these factors helps to generate a self-sustaining matrix through which both Essence and Personality can function and manifest within the Physical Plane.

The first quadrant of “Trues” is the Personal Quadrant, or Pillars of Vitality, and they are True Work, True Play, and True Rest, of course (adding the Life Task creates the quadrant). If these are addressed, the Personality co-creates with Essence and feels alive, dynamic, and directed. The awareness and benefit is of the immediate well-being of self. While this quadrant is of use at any point in the process of lifetimes, this quadrant is usually of primary implementation and development during from Mid-Young Soul cycle through Mid-Mature Soul cycle.

The second quadrant of Trues is the Community Quadrant, or Pillars of Harmony. If these are addressed, the Personality and Essence co-create in a way that includes consideration of consequences, impact, and exchanged effects on the self as it exists within a body, environment, and community. These Trues are known as True Home, True Health, and True Spirit. While this quadrant is of benefit to know at any point during the incarnational cycles, it is most often implemented and developed from Mid-Mature to Mid-Old Soul.

True Home is any variable or element within the immediate environment outside of the Body that tends to create an exchange of harmony. True Home can be described as geographical locations or “zones,” or in terms of elements such as general weather, temperature, types of nature, colors, etc. For the most part, True Home may tend to be a combination of two Zones. There are 7 Zones: “Ocean,” “Desert,” “Wilderness,” “Jungle,” “Plains,” “Urban,” and “Mountain.” One does not have to relocate in order to implement the benefit of True Home. If one’s True Home is in the “Desert Zone,” for example, even if one is geographically located in an “Urban Zone,” decorative elements can be used in the immediate environment to draw in the energy of the Desert Zone. In fact, the type of nature, colors, weather, and temperatures that can help to describe True Home could be said to all be extensions from one of the 7 Zones. Creating one’s True Home can help one to feel in harmony with his immediate environment in a way that brings more of Essence and Personality into the community.

True Health is a description using percentages of emphasis that one might consider for optimum physical health in terms of interaction with the environment. These percentages are suggested as divided among 7 categories that describe a physical body’s “diet.” These 7 categories are described by as Exercising, Feeding, Socializing, Sleeping, Schooling, Entertaining, Meditating. One’s True Health may have more of an emphasis of percentage on Feeding, Sleeping, and Socializing as a means to support health, over someone else who might have higher percentages in Schooling, Entertaining, and Meditating. ALL categories are addressed in the daily life of a Personality, but being aware of what most immediately and effectively supports the overall health, one can sustain well-being and balance within the exchanges between the body and community. We can suggest percentages across all 7, but a more practical approach might be to simply be aware that ones True Health could be described as a combination of 2 or 3 categories of emphasis.

True Spirit is one’s medium within an environment for encouraging expression of Essence more fully. There are 7 media: Independently-Mobile Beings (e.g. animals), Dependently-Immobile Beings (e.g. plants), Ritual, Labor, Arts, Technology, and Communication. One’s True Spirit is usually a combination of 2 or 3 media.

There are 7 “zones,” “diets,” and “media” in the above because they are on the level of interaction with environment and community, and this lends itself to a sort of structuring that is unique to this quadrant.

The last quadrant could be described as the Planetary Quadrant, or the Pillars of Transformation. If these are addressed, the Personality and Essence co-create in a way that contributes to the evolution of the self, the planet, and sentience. These are True Love, True Core, and True Gift. While these can be important at any point during a cycle of lives, it is during the Old Soul Age that these begin to feel vital to comprehend.

True Love is a way to help one grasp those factors that come together to generate Agape from Personality and Essence into the world.

True Core is a way to help one grasp those factors that come together for embedding one’s Truth into the world.

True Gift is a way to help one grasp those factors that come together for amplifying one’s Courage into the world.

When any of our students ask us about these 9 Trues, or 3 Quadrants/Pillar groups, our responses are always our interpretation and suggestion, but we encourage our students to validate and discover their own interpretations and suggestions.

Each Quadrant or group of Pillars would do well to have more elaborate attention.
