In the previous two articles on polarities and soul age we covered some of the primary personality dimensions of souls. Below Archangel Metatron will now cover how these influence yourself and others around you in terms of how you perceive reality, those around you, and how to better understand differences in lenses and mental models that different people adopt.
Now that we have covered some of the basics of how reality works, and what makes everything tick, so to speak, we wish to tie everything together in a way that provides perspective on all that we have stated thus far.
This word, perspective, is in a sense key to understand all of this. You must realize that while what we have described in this series of articles is an example outline of All That Is and its function, it is also but one perspective of how to see it, and how to describe it. It is filtered through my own experiences and understandings. While my own perspective is somewhat comprehensive, thanks to the position I have managed to acquire, it is still just a perspective.
With this I wish to say that there is never just one way of defining things, of seeing things, of valuing things. There will always be more than one way of looking at the world, and understanding how it works.
Given the understandings that we have outlined thus far I think you can tell for yourself that this is the case, and that everyone would have at the very least slight differences in how they see these issues, how these words are interpreted, and what lessons are being extracted from these writings.
In some cases the differences will be substantial, if the existing framework which you currently have to understand the world is vastly different from what is being said here. And so, there is never just one way to look at it, never just one way of perceiving it, and this goes for both things related to the metaphysical understandings of reality, as we are describing here, as well as with matters closer to your normal everyday life.
Because these understandings and perspectives are always delivered through the filter of the source, and then again filtered through the filter of the reader or receiver, there will at all times be a multitude of various ways of looking at things, and actions that are then taken based on these received understandings.
Getting just two people to agree in full upon the finer details of what we have said here will be close to impossible, as although the words used may be the same, the understanding and perspective behind the words will at all times be different, sometimes substantially so.
The dimensions of personality which we have discussed in relation to the souls themselves, as well as the soul age that provides additional unique difficulties when comparing notes on what constitutes reality, all of these issues combine to ensure that no two views are ever quite the same.
This is why it is always also good to keep in mind that discernment is required. For one, some souls use deception and misinformation as a key tool in gaining an upper hand over others, and this needs to be understood and accepted as fact. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, even if two beings who communicate with one another on these topics are both sincere and honest, there is still plenty room for misunderstandings and disagreements, over both little and large differences of opinion, due to the differences of perspective that are inherently at play.
Going forward we would therefore suggest that while it is always useful to keep in mind the issues we have described in this series of articles when viewing the world, and the actions and words of people living in it, at all times should you also be careful to be aware of your own filters and biases, and where they come from, and whether or not they are useful for helping you perform your function within this world optimally.
For some, on the dark path, it is even more complex as oftentimes the inner understanding is rarely shared in full honesty with others. For others, on the light path, there is also issues with not acknowledging ones own failures of understanding and willy nilly believing that others are as open and sincere as oneself.
Both of these paths offer unique challenges to be overcome, and from our perspective here in the angelic realm they are both worthy of exploration and commitment. We merely wish that individual souls try to be sincere and committed to whatever path they have chosen, and play the game as fully as possible, knowing who you are, and where you stand. There is no right or wrong in these things, but confusion of position should be avoided. Neither the light nor the dark benefits from confusion. We agree on this, at the very least.Archangel Metatron
At this point I think the most useful way to tie all of this together, to put these metaphysical insights and understandings into a practical context, is to relate the above and the previous related articles on polarities and soul age with the current conflict in the world, as of March 2022. Without practical application these understandings are useless.
In any conflict the first advantage is to know yourself. And so to know yourself, you need to figure out where you are, as a soul, on the spectrum of the primary personality dimensions. Light and dark, chaos and order, masculine and feminine. Once you have determined this, then at least you will have a sense of why your opinions and feelings are the way they are, and how they differ from others. What is your line in the sand, as compared to those of others around you.
An important aspect of knowing yourself is also to realize that you are never truly your own enemy. As we have previously described, in the case that you have (for example) been subjected to narcissistic abuse it is possible to have a negative introject, a critical internal voice that keeps you down. That is not you as an enemy. That is an injected poison that can and should be transmuted and released. This is a very important distinction.
The second advantage in conflict is to know your enemy. But in order to know your enemy you must first understand your enemy. And in order to understand your enemy you must first respect your enemy.
This is the fatal mistake we see made by most people who are discussing what is going on in the world currently, and I suspect, going forward. They use phrases such as “they are so stupid”, or “that’s insane”, or “what are they thinking!?”. This kind of language makes it almost impossible to respect your enemy, which makes it impossible to understand your enemy, and therefore impossible to know your enemy, and so therefore any battle you will lose. Always. Predictably.
What is the proper attitude to adopt instead? We would suggest that a simple change of language is a good start. Instead of saying “that’s insane!” or “wow, they are so stupid” it is to your advantage to say and think: “hm, they are very clever, I wonder what they are trying to achieve with this?”
The assumption should always be that whatever your enemy is doing, from their perspective there is a logic to it, and so your job is to figure out what that logic is, regardless of whether you agree with it or not.
For example, let’s say that you are on the path of light. The way this typically projects into human behavior and political leaning is by way of preferring freedom, liberty, and healthy competition and cooperation. When you see someone promoting authoritarian ideas and compliance this is then not “stupid” or “insane” or “ignorant”, it is merely the way that the path of dark projects itself into the human approach to society. From that perspective it is perfectly logical, and any tactics used that promotes this, including deception and misinformation, is the correct way to implement it.
Once you are able to see the conflict from this perspective, then you are able to respect your enemy while disagreeing. Only then can you understand your enemy, and their tactics. Only then can you know your enemy, which ultimately leads to at least the possibility of winning.
This is application of polarity, perspective, and discernment. Layered on top of this is the influence that soul ages of various people. For example, some believe that the conflict is between people of different ethnicities, races, genders, or nations. This is the perspective of a child, in terms of soul age. Others believe that the conflict is about culture, philosophical ideas, and political ideologies. This is the perspective of adolescents, in terms of soul age.
In reality all conflicts ultimately are the expressions of these various soul personality dimensions, with the added complexity of soul age on top of it, that play out in society at different times. This is the perspective of an adult soul.
But what you see about conflicts on the news is the metaphorical shadow in the cave. It is not the true cause or reason for the conflict. The true reason is as outlined above, which is what the adult souls know very well. Once you understand the actual cause of the conflict you can start to understand the reasonings and motivations of each party involved, and from there you can begin to construct tactics and strategies that take this into account. If you do not do this, there is no chance of winning.
So the white pill, to borrow a popular term, is that really all it takes for things to improve is a change of perspective. If enough parties involved in this conflict were to realize what is actually going on, and how to approach the conflict, it would change the dynamics dramatically.
Of course, the above has implications beyond just the current conflicts that are happening at the time of writing in 2022. Another relevant question might be whether it is wise to elect children as leaders. Whether it makes sense to insist that a country is following a pattern only suitable to one combination of soul personality dimensions, or whether it is more sensible to allow parts to be more leaning one way or the other, with at least some degree of acceptance and tolerance between them. And so on.
But those are questions for further down the road. At the current moment the primary issue is the lack of perspective and ability to see the conflicts for what they truly are. If that doesn’t change then there is very little chance of a positive resolution.
The most practical place to start with all this is to look at leaders and public figures around the world, and see if you can discern, from your own perspective, where they stand on these primary personality dimensions. Once you are able to see the underlying cause of their words and actions, it becomes easier to see the logic and rationale behind it all, even if it completely disagrees with your own point of view.
This exercise is also one of the most powerful ways to grow your own soul, by at all times focusing on the perspective of an adult soul. Stop emphasizing factors that are less important, such as external characteristics of a person, as well as their stated affiliations, whether religious, philosophical, or political. All of those are merely shadows on the wall.
As Metatron often puts it: “we have faith in you”.
You have probably heard the following saying: “oh, that person is an old soul”. So far we have mainly touched upon the primary design archetype of light versus dark, in terms of how a soul has been pulled from the source of its energy. It is therefore now relevant to discuss the progression a soul makes from inception to its final form.
Below you will find an outline from Archangel Metatron on what this entails, and we will then try to contextualize this with regard to our current situation on Earth, and how the various stages project their ways of being in our society.
We now turn our attention to a topic which has rarely been touched upon by other writers, in part because the notion we will be dealing with here is quite difficult to understand from your perspective, and there are plenty of surrounding deceptions around the overall topic of souls.
What we shall be delving into here is the sense of soul age, or soul progression. Meaning, from the moment a soul is born up until it graduates into the two final forms. This progression follows a fairly predetermined path, and yet within those confines there are plenty of variation to be found, both in terms of how a soul was created to begin with, as well as the choices and options available along the road.
By understanding this context it will give you yourself a better sense of where you are, what lessons you are currently supposed to be exploring, and what comes next. By providing this guideline we hope that your progression will be smoother and executed with an open mind towards where you want to eventually end up.
As we have already described souls are created with a certain proclivity towards either of the polarities, the light and the dark paths, as well as the other two primary soul dimensions of chaos/order and masculine/feminine. These dimensions provide a static snapshot of the forces within you pulling this way or the other.
But we shall now add to this mix the notion of soul age, which adds an additional dimension which needs to be taken into consideration when either looking at yourself or those around you, to understand who they are, where they are, and when they are on their journey.
The first step of any soul is to be created out of the infinite sea of intelligent energy, by one of the creators of souls. This includes the Creator Sources themselves, as well as the twenty and four seraphs. The distribution is fairly even, and so souls created by the Creators only amount to about 3% of all created souls, with the rest being accounted for by the seraphs who are in charge of their respective domain and dominant aspects.
After a soul has been created it first remains within the nursing chamber for a while, where it is studied for viability and it gets to see its own personality in relation to the other souls of the same batch. Abilities, likes and dislikes are assessed, after which the soul is assigned to one part of the universe or the other. This process repeats for every universe, and for each multiverse, and ultimately, for each unique Creation which exists in reality as a whole.
After this initial incubation period the soul begins to incarnate into the world in progressively more complex forms. First as matter, then as complex matter, then as plants and animals, and finally as some kind of complex lifeforms, such as the humanoid vessels you have available to you on your planet.
After sufficient experience has been obtained the soul gets to choose its final form, either as a demon or an angel, residing in the eighth and tenth density respectively. From there the soul can continue to interact with reality through indirect means, and continue to absorb experience and learn lessons, even though it is no longer needed to incarnate individually.
What we would like to focus on in this writing is the step which you are now experiencing, meaning the step of incarnating as humanoid lifeforms, where the most complex lessons are learned. We would suggest that it is useful to break down this phase into the same life stages as a humanoid goes through, for allegorical purposes.
The first stage of a soul incarnating as a humanoid life form is that of a toddler. This happens immediately after the stage of having existed as animals in various incarnations, which can include any form you have on your planet plus many more other types available on other planets.
Therefore, the first phase is all about getting your bearings within this type of being. It is the first step of learning what you can do, who you are, and what you like and dislike, in various elements of life. However, as a toddler soul incarnating as a human there would be little interest in what you might refer to as politics, ideology, or philosophy. That comes much later. Having a simple life, performing simple tasks that bring experience and learning, is sufficient for the toddler.
The next step is to begin learning what it means to live among others such as yourself, and how to relate to them and asses who they are in relation to you. This stage, the child stage, is signified by the soul attempting to asses other people through their external representation. Age, skin color, race, wealth, gender, and so on, all become the ways in which a child thinks of other people, and how to understand who they are and what they want. I think it is safe to say that it is fairly straightforward to see how these needs to understand the world expresses themselves in your society, as a simplistic but still useful way to navigate life. It is a low resolution approach, but still better than the toddler who has no way of distinguishing one from the other in any meaningful way.
The next stage after this is the adolescent stage. At this point the soul has learned that while there is some utility in gauging other-selves by external means it is too low resolution to be meaningful when dealing with single individuals, and so another approach is taken. Instead of looking at external factors of a human there is instead the notion of understanding what someone else thinks, as a way to judge the character of the other.
Religion, philosophy, political affiliations, or other belief systems, become the primary way in which the adolescent thinks about whether to trust others or not, and how to relate to them. Others are seen as being essentially the same as you, but having chosen different ways of believing things about the world, and filtering out what is true or not.
This is a huge improvement from the child stage, but is still fraught with problems as the belief systems of others still don’t reflect the true nature of an individual, which is projected in essence from the soul archetype along with the primary dimensions of personality as we outlined at the top.
We then come to the adult stage, where again the soul recognizes that simply judging someone else based on their belief systems and mental models become insufficient. The adult is starting to recognize its own choices and being, whether it is of the light or dark, and where it stands along the dimensions of chaos/order and masculine/feminine.
As it realizes this about itself it also recognizes that the same applies to other souls who are walking around in vessels just as it is. The futility of relying on external characteristics is acknowledged, the futility of relying on mental models and political affiliations is also acknowledged, and now the souls begins to judge others by their core character, by their true nature, of which all else is merely a projection.
Towards the end of this stage it is not only realized that this is the most reliable way of judging other people, but that there are other souls sharing society with it that have not yet come to this stage of understanding, and so there is utility in dealing with them on their own terms, where they are on their own progression, and with the insight of the adult mind to see what is and what is not true.
At this point there is also significant difference between how those on the path of light and path of dark relate to others not yet in the adult stage. For example, an adult soul on the path of dark may explicitly make use of deception to emphasize to child souls the differences between various external characteristics, such as skin color or gender, as it knows this is a powerful way to sway the opinion and allegiance of children who have this viewpoint to begin with.
With the above as context for how to think about soul ages I hope you can begin to see phenomenon around you, when it comes to social dynamics, that play themselves out in accordance with soul ages, the various soul archetypes and personality dimensions, and how these intersect and interact. This is an incredibly powerful and useful insight, a lens which we suggest you adopt no matter where you are on the spectrums, in order to better understand the world around you, and why it behaves the way it does.
After the adult stage there is one final stage before ascending to either become an angel or demon, which is the elder soul stage. We will leave this out for now, as the above is more than enough to be processed by most people living here. Our books go into more detail on all this, and so we suggest the interested reader who wishes to understand this better to look into those.Archangel Metatron
With the above as context and a useful lens through which to view social dynamics, let’s look at some of the resulting consequences.
The first, and perhaps most obvious, point to make is that soul age is much more important as a factor with regard to how someone thinks and behaves compared to biological age. An adult biological child will often be more mature in thinking than a toddler biological elder. This is where the expression of “someone being an old soul” in a sense comes from, but the above explanation provides a richer understanding of what is actually going on.
Secondly, when looking at macrosocial dynamics, such as ideologies, political affiliations, and religions, it also becomes easier to see where the drive to follow one or the other comes from. It is safe to say that a majority of souls on the planet at the current moment are going through childhood, moving into adolescence some day, and so the obsession with external characteristics such as skin color, gender, and wealth is in a sense natural. It is the lens which the child soul has been able to adopt in order to make sense of the world, and for some simplistic purposes it fulfills that need.
Third, it is also important to stress the point that since all souls currently living on this planet are at different stages it becomes useful to understand the interaction between souls of different levels of progression as well as the primary soul personality dimension of light and dark. Adult souls of either light and dark will make use of the fact that they understand themselves and others better, and can use this to their advantage, either way. For adult souls of the dark persuasion creating ideologies that focus on external characteristics become an easy path to gather followers. For adult souls of the light persuasion it becomes a tool to assist younger souls to overcome their current lens for the purpose of growing up and becoming adolescent, at the very least.
As the planet is currently still reeling from the aftereffects of the reptilian rule, since the fall of Atlantis, it is safe to assume that most current ideologies, whether political, religious, or philosophical, are heavily influenced by this. The goal for someone like us, then, is to initially simply point this out so that others can see it, and later on start thinking about what a way of being that is more aligned with the path of light might look like, taking into consideration that we will all for the remainder of this planet’s lifetime be in a mixed polarity environment. We will all have to learn to not only deal with our own self and sensibilities, but also recognize and adjust to the particularities of others who are on the other side of the spectrums, with regard to light/dark, masculine/feminine, as well as chaos/order.
One of the key things to understand about reality itself, from a metaphysical point of view, is that it only exists for one single purpose: to generate novel experience. What we are seeing around us is a representation of sentient energy that has been polarized into this form or the other, and what drives this process is the need to generate novel experience to keep the energy flowing into the system.
The primary way in which this is done is by allowing souls of light to incarnate into various lifeforms within the holographic projection we think of as our universe. There are many universes within our multiverse, and there are many multiverses within our Creation as a totality, and there are many Creations similar to this one. They all compete, in some sense, by trying to provide the most interesting and engaging theme parks for souls to learn about themselves and others, as this is what generates novel experience. More novel experience means more energy is being pulled in, which means growth of the system overall.
The main design decision around souls of light is the distance they are pulled from the infinite sea of intelligent energy upon creation, which creates the impetus to follow either the path of light or the path of dark, in order to create novel experience and learn lessons. Archangel Metatron will explain the basics of how this works, and what it leads to, so that you can gain a better sense of what exactly is going on within our tiny corner of the universe we call Earth.
When it comes to understanding polarities, the most fundamental design archetype for souls, it is good to keep in mind at all times that there is no better or worse, just variations of expression of a souls journey. Whether this is done through the path of light or the path of dark is inconsequential, as the main purpose of life is to generate experience through learning lessons.
With this in mind we can now begin to outline the issues surrounding polarities of souls, that is, the distance they have been pulled from the infinite sea upon their creation. Souls that have been pulled, relatively speaking, a shorter distance we denote as souls following the path of light. Those who have been pulled, relatively speaking, farther away are denoted as souls following the path of dark. And then there’s an infinite number of degrees of this, nuances, and when combined with the other dimensions of chaos/order and masculine/feminine their true nature expresses itself fully.
There is a common misunderstanding on your planet that dark is bad, and light is good. This is not so, and is merely a simplification for those working on the path of light most commonly, as well as a deception tactic used by those on the path of dark to attract more followers to their cause. In reality all modes of being have value and purpose, as long as they generate novel experience which expands Creation as a whole. The Creator Sources do not discriminate between these in the way you do, thanks to their higher understanding of reality itself and what it takes to create a successful environment in which sentient energy, or consciousness, can thrive.
Once we understand this we can begin to outline the primary differences in expression between these paths, and their relative purpose when meeting each other.
First of all, the path of light, which we in the angelic realm are most commonly associated with. This path involves a certain intuitive understanding that at some level we are all one, part of a greater whole, yet temporarily divided into pieces for this or the other reason.
So when we look around we see other faces of ourselves, otherselves, which are tossed into the same holographic projection for the same purpose as us, and we tend to want to cooperate with each other as the means of progression.
By contrast, those on the dark path, who have been pulled farther away from Source when they were created, focus more on the division and barely even recognize that there is a connection between all beings, however faint.
This leads to a more competitive approach, both between themselves, as well as with those on the path of light, who they view as easy food and nourishment for their own betterment.
In both cases the ultimate goal is becoming the best they can be, no matter the path chosen, expressing their archetype as perfectly and totally as possible.
Souls who have progressed through their journey of growth on either path eventually find themselves at the ultimate endpoints. On the path of light the end stage is to become an angel here in the angelic realm, and for those on the dark path the respective outcome is to become what you would call a demon. A soul so utterly engrossed in the consumption of others that it has dedicated itself to perfecting this mode of being.
But these end states are only, ultimately, a matter of perspective on the experience gained through incarnation, and as perspectives can change you have the rare occurrences you would call angels who “fall”, and demons who “see the light”, respectively.
There is no need for beings who accomplish this to go through more incarnations, as the only change which caused it is a change of understanding of experience gained thus far. As far as the Creator Sources are concerned both of these outcomes are treasured highly as they represent the ultimate in what we would denote novel experience.
In practical terms, what would give you as an incarnated being hints and suggestions as to the path which you are yourself following, or those around you? To some extent these are insights that are best discovered on your own, as they are part of the learning experience that you go through in life.
That being said we can give you a few clues as to what to look for, to assist you in choosing to live your life in alignment with the purpose of your soul, who very much is in full understanding of what it is, and what it needs to experience to grow.
The path of light, as we have indicated, is about considering others as part of the same journey, going in the same direction towards a common goal. We recognize that others have nuances different from us, but that this only enriches us as being able to do things that we ourselves cannot.
It is about finding a balance between our various expressions and helping each other learn these life lessons as well as possible, while respecting the inevitable differences in how we go about it.
An elder soul on the path of light, who is better armed to not only see his own choices, but those of others as well, is also able to assist souls on the path of dark to become better themselves, by more fully engrossing themselves in the domination of otherselves as the natural expression of their faint light.
There is no judgment here, as the understanding of variable expression and their common goal of generating novel experience is understood. An elder on the path of light might, however, assist victims of said negative beings, both as a way to encourage growth in the being that is dominated, as well as forcing the being on the path of dark to become stronger and more effective in its means of domination and control.
It is about increasing the polarity, and increasing the dynamics between the two paths that matters, as the only unacceptable state is for matters to become boring and stale. This is the only state which is to be avoided at all costs, because the ultimate outcome of this would be the implosion and destruction of reality itself.
On the flip side, as we have also alluded to, the path of the dark involves domination and control of others, on all levels. This can be in personal relationships, family situations, communities, joint ventures, or nations. On the grander scale there are even interspecies conflicts which can form a basis for learning these lessons, and how to better express the pathos of the dark, in various ways. Either through the masculine principle of strength and power, or the feminine principle of deception and willful submission.
If you were to analyze the state of affairs throughout your history these themes apply over and over again, which is just as it should be, as this is a normal expression of the interactions between light and dark on your planet.
It must be said that this planet is unique in this sense. Other planets, and the species that live there, have mostly polarized to either side, becoming either societies that value the light or societies that value the dark. This place of yours is an exception in all of reality in that the mix of light and dark is so extreme, and that expressions of either are both common and in constant conflict with each other. This is why your planet, among all planets, is valued so highly in the higher realms, as the perfect learning ground for advanced lessons and the fertile soil for experiences that cannot be had anywhere else.
There is more to be said about this, but I think we will leave it there for now.Archangel Metatron
The above outline of the polarities, as the primary dimension of personality for souls of light, is true and valid in all contexts. However, since we are all living as humans on this planet at this time there are certain misunderstandings related to this topic that we think would be useful to address at this point.
The first conclusion, which must be understood before anything else will make any sense, is the basic insight that humans don’t have souls. Souls have humans. The universe, and everything in it, is a holographic projection created and manifested by a particular type of soul specifically designed for this purpose, so that souls of light can have a playground, a sandbox, a theme park in which to immerse themselves for the purpose of generating novel experience. This goes for all other forms of life as well, whether it be plants or animals, or other variations. They all have souls of light attached to them, which animates them in one way or the other, for the purpose of generating novel experience. This is the primary purpose of reality itself.
The second conclusion, which will drive all the other corollaries, is that it is absolutely imperative for souls of light to be put on the spectrum of light and dark, that is, how far away from source they are. Think of it as animals on a savannah. The savannah has grass, metaphorically the energy available to all of us from the infinite sea of intelligent energy, and there are then two primary options with regard to how to access this energy. Some animals will be vegetarians and graze straight from the grass of the savannah. Some animals instead are carnivores and access the same energy indirectly, by feeding on other animals which have all gathered and processed the raw energy.
This metaphor is almost exactly how to think about the paths of light and dark that are available to souls of light when incarnating into biological vessels. Both are natural. Both are critical to the health and growth of the system. You cannot just have souls of light following the path of light, or reality would collapse. You cannot just have souls of light following the path of dark, or reality would collapse. Both are required. This point cannot be stressed enough, and we see this being a very common point of misunderstanding when it comes to spirituality and metaphysics. Some seem to believe that only the light is right. Some seem to believe that only might is right. They are both wrong, and missing the bigger picture.
From this we can derive a few corollaries, mainly related to some of our favourite pet peeves when it comes to misunderstanding life.
Let’s first take a look at the following saying:
“Always assume stupidity before malevolence.”
If we understand malevolence as being essentially the expression of the path of dark, the inherent misunderstanding is to believe that the path of dark is an unusual or invalid option. This is often stated by those following the path of light who project their own view that cooperation is the logical way to be, and so malevolence is an aberration and unnatural. They don’t want to see that there is another choice to be made, and that such a choice of being malevolent is logical and rational from the point of view of those who choose to be in this manner. On the flip side this saying would also be used by those who are malevolent, and knowingly so, as the predator always tries to use tactics to remain hidden and unseen, to ensure efficient and effective feeding on their prey. So both sides have their own reasons for using this phrase, but for very different reasons.
Here is another common misunderstanding:
“You are your own ultimate predator.”
The idea here is that your ultimate enemy is yourself, specifically the voice inside of you that wants to put you down, discredit you, and claim that you are a failure. This voice certainly exists, and it is there for understandable reasons, but the metaphor is incorrect. Predators stalk and hunt others in order to feed, one way or the other. However, this insidious internal voice does not serve yourself, it does not nourish yourself, and so to call it a predator is semantically incorrect.
So what would be the correct word to use? We think, in light of the work that has been done in the field of psychology related to narcissistic families, that a better word for it is poison. In other words, that voice inside of you that wishes to put you down is the consequence of an external predator, typically from a narcissistic parent or similar figure of authority in your life, which has injected these ideas in you as a poison, to wear you down, to make the victim more palatable.
Once you have the correct metaphor, that this is something external which has been injected into you rather than something that is intrinsically a part of you, it becomes a much easier task to deal with. There is no need to feel ashamed or betrayed by yourself, or anything of the sort, once you realize that this poison has been given to you from outside, and can therefore be removed from you without any loss to yourself.
Another idea that deserves some scrutiny:
“The world must unite.”
With the understanding that Earth is a mixed polarity theme park, unlike any other planet in all of reality, this idea becomes problematic. The souls of light following the path of light understand this notion as being cooperative in nature, where we all accept and appreciate each other, considering both what we have in common and what makes us different. The souls of light following the path of dark understand this notion as everyone being united under an authoritarian government, where everyone follows the rules and therefore order is maintained. There is good reason why “stronger together” is a slogan of fascism. These two vastly different interpretations of the concept of “uniting” should lead us to making such a statement with great hesitation and care. For those of the dark path to “unite” with everyone means putting everyone into the strict regulations of a tyranny. For them this is the right way.
The appropriate attitude, now that we understand the polarities and how they express themselves, is to be honest with yourself and others where you stand, whether individual freedom and liberties of the light path or authoritarian rule and regulation of the dark path, is what you want. And from the perspective of each path, those options make perfect sense. United? How? Irreconcilable differences should be acknowledged and respected, and then we should all congregate with those who are trying to be the best they can be along the path that matches our own.
