Michael Books / Michael For The Millenium
« on: July 29, 2011, 08:47:56 AM »
With all the so-called negativity about Yarbro's "Michael for the Millenium," out
of curiosity I re-read passages from it earlier this week and, rather surprisingly,
found it quite interesting.

The obvious difference between MFTM and the other Yarbro books is that it
doesn't present any core MT material. MFTM is mostly just chapters containing Q
& A on various topics, such as the environment, overpopulation, and so forth.
But Michael's answers seem well-reasoned and instructive. I enjoyed the
channeling.

I would still recommend the earlier Yarbro books before suggesting MFTM, but I
think it's a worthy read as a supplement to the existing material.

And with all due respect to Troy's channeling, I'm not convinced that Yarbro
faked the chapter on the seven roles and their progression through the soul
ages. We have no proof of that and it's really just hearsay at the moment. Sure,
I guess it's possible, but the idea of concurrents doesn't necessarily negate
the authenticity of that chapter. The total lifetimes (including any
concurrents) could still be described in a linear fashion. I see no argument in
that. And after all, even though time is simultaneous in other realms, when
physical we do follow a linear timeline. It's part of our evolutionary process.

Like her not, I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that Yarbro's material
is still the most remarkable Michael channeling we have yet to see. We owe her
and her channels a great deal of admiration. I sometimes forget just how good
the channeling was in the MFM books till I revisit the material. It's always a
pleasure.

Best,
Dave

I was a long-time Seth devotee, and when my sister dropped a copy of Messages From Michael into my lap it was love at first...okay, so I hated the book the first time I read it. I thought the concept tried to compartmentalize people and place them in boxes. But years later (around 1995) I rediscovered the teachings and the second time around was the proverbial charm. 

Like others, I would say the concept of soul age fascinated me the most initially, and then little by little I began digging further into the core riches that the teachings offered concerning the psychology of the soul. It explained so much about who I was and why others were different, and from literally day one I've never lost my enthusiasm or fascination with the material. Surprisingly, for over a decade now I've tried to create educational mediums that would help students learn more about the teachings. I can't say I've enjoyed the occasional arrows from my detractors, but being of service to fellow Michael students has always been a great pleasure.

Best,
Dave

Paranormal / Re: Is Michael a Ghost?
« on: July 10, 2011, 05:37:44 AM »
We're discussing something similar on the MT list at the moment. I'll add my two
cents at both places.

I think of a ghost as either being an earthbound astral fragment that won't let
go of it's earthly ties, or an energetic imprint from an emotionally charged
event that left a psychic impression in the terrain. In such cases, the haunting
is really like a holographic projection created by the emotional intensity of
individuals who have long since departed. I'm not entirely sure how it works,
but this projection plays back in an endless loop, perhaps gradually fading in
time like the decay rate of a radioactive isotope, to offer a comparison. The
haunting is no doubt perceived by those sensitive to such activity. That's pure
speculation on my part, of course.

So, in short, Michael is not a ghost. They're what we call an entity, which is a
united group of 1050 souls. They emanate from a spiritual plane known as the
Causal. You can find more information about this at michaelteachings.com

Michael has said that my last few lifetimes were lived very hurriedly and intensely, which left no room for digestion of my experiences. And this lifetime is definitely more slow, and any time I try to go too fast, life knocks me back into a place where I have to rest and digest. Like being on vacation (Flow) when you feel you're supposed to be working or doing something. It's hard to enjoy sometimes, but you know you'll enjoy it better if you just relax and truly take some time off to enjoy the scenery and your small experiences of leisure.

For that reason, though, Flow is not always the fun and games that students typically jest about. A lifetime of rest can especially abrade on the personality because of the comparisons we do with others, as well as the constant expectations from friends and family. By seemingly following our inner directive, which feels like the right thing to do, we can be seen as lazy and noncontributing members of society. Many people just don't understand those in Flow, which creates an oppression of self-judgment and a tendency to over criticize ourselves. This opens the door to a host of chief features, and most likely, some interesting self-karmas.

I'm glad you're getting a handle on it, Elisabeth. Flow is not easy.

The Seven Centers / Re: Jim Carrey and the Higher Centers
« on: July 07, 2011, 06:38:55 AM »
This is a brief but nice description by Jim Carrey of having a Higher Center experience - an enlightenment experience, if you will, as described by the Michaels. Enjoy!

Considering the nature of his comedic antics over the years, many people don't take Carrey that seriously as a person, but in other clips and interviews I've seen indications that this guy may be on the path.

As far as it being a question for evolutionary biologists, not the MT:  well, my opinion is, Dave will delete it if he thinks it is OT.  Other than that:  if people want to discuss it, that's their choice.

You are right, Betty. If something is blatantly off-topic I'll delete it; however, Chiara's comment is valid, too, since I've asked both her and John Roth to watch over the forum and help keep things on topic whenever possible. She wasn't trying to restrict choice, she was simply making a comment based on things I've discussed with her regarding the forum guidelines. No harm no foul, though.

Best,
Dave

There's no problem with discussing the transcripts. I simply don't want to advertise on a public forum the various ways to distribute the transcripts. That might needlessly irritate Yarbro and I'd rather let sleeping dogs lie.

Book & Movie Reviews / Re: Hereafter
« on: June 18, 2011, 11:47:11 PM »
I really wanted to enjoy the film but I thought the characters were too passive, the storylines were disjointed, and they didn't integrate effectively at the end, which was frustrating. In fact, the ending came out of nowhere, was weirdly sentimental, and not believable.

Concerning the screenplay, I never understood why the characters had to be displaced across the world. That had a jarring effect on me and it required the use of subtitles, which could have been avoided if they had centered this story locally. I wonder if Eastwood simply wanted to film in France and this script, that jumped all over the world, was his excuse.

And was anyone else bothered by the introduction of the cooking student, played by Ron Howard's daughter? She was the first character that didn't appear to be sleep walking, yet almost as soon as she entered the film she was written out of it. Baffling.

There were more things that bothered me, but I don't recall what they were at the moment. I thought the cast was good but the screenplay was weak. The film meanders too much and the characters just seem to stumble around. The opening shot, however, was quite riveting and showed how fleeting life can be, and how we should step back occasionally and take stock of what is truly important. It was an excellent premise for a film but it needed a stronger focus overall.

Oh, and the musical score was uneven. I was impressed that Clint Eastwood scored it himself, but some of the passages were laughingly cornball.

Best,
Dave

We probably shouldn't use this forum to post methods for sharing the transcripts, since that could offend Yarbro and draw unwanted negative attention.
