The Overleaves (General) / Positive and Negative Poles
« on: June 26, 2012, 04:19:14 PM »
I've noticed that when I spend time in the positive pole of my role, or any of my overleaves, people in the corresponding negative pole seem to stand out vividly.

Does this happen to others?

Karma / Philanthropic Karma
« on: November 09, 2011, 02:03:51 PM »
I ran across this in a reread of MMfM a few days ago.  I don't have the exact phrasing of it in front of me, but it seems to be a reversal of normal karma where a choice is removed, and instead a choice is offered.  As with normal karma, though, the gesture is repaid down the line in kind.

I'm still pondering the full implications of this, but so far it seems funny that doing something (profoundly) nice for another might not just be balancing a previous debt, but could also create an imbalance in and of itself.  Any other thoughts on this kind of karma?

Soul Age / Cycling Off
« on: June 08, 2011, 09:08:12 PM »
The more research I do on it, the more the information I find seems to contradict itself.  For instance:

"You never cycle off without being aware of doing it"


"some people will cycle off with only a faint feeling that there's more than meets the eye"

Most sources tend to agree on the prevalence of non-attachment plus major interpersonal karmas being resolved as the key criteria, but tend to differ past that point as to the specifics of how and when it happens - plus what the average 7th-level Old Soul is like.  What do we really know about this process/experience and the soul age that immediately precedes it?

Priest / Goading
« on: May 19, 2011, 12:08:00 AM »
It has been said that Priests help others by helping or goading others to self-examination.

For other Priests: How do you view and/or use goading?

For non-Priests: Have you been on the receiving end of their goading?  What are your ideas about it?


For me, I find it's a great tool when someone's stonewalling and not acknowledging their feelings or insights.  I'm sneaky enough with it that it usually catches someone off-guard, and their response (while potentially volatile) can often start a whole new line of investigation.  I used to be more brazen with it in my younger days, but regard it as a much more situational (and powerful) tool the older I get.  Namely, because through experience and the teachings I've discovered that most others dislike the Priestly pace of growth/lessons/etc. that I prefer.  Which is fine - I'll be here when you're ready.   :)
