Reading time: 11 – 18 minutes

WHOLENESS OF SOUL PROGRAM
2005 – 2006
INVITATION & ITINERARY

This is what I have sent out to my community and friends as an invitation to a course I am teaching this year. If you are not familiar with all of the terms below, or you are new to the my work in any way, please see 7Paths for a Quick Introduction. There is a more thorough introduction to the Basic Teachings available there, too, along with a Glossary.

Okay, I am SO excited to finally be ready to offer this to all of you! Please feel free to share with everyone you know who might benefit from something this adventurous, exciting, and potentially important!

Wholeness of Soul is a course that was experimentally introduced in the year 2002. A tentative group formed and committed to the process that would come to be known as Wholeness of Soul. The results for all of us have proven to be so validating and powerful that I have chosen this course to be the basis of my first published book! I wanted to offer the course one more time, in different ways, before finalizing what I would create in book-form. In essence, each of you who participate will be a little, beautiful piece of history in the ever-unfolding library of The Michael Teachings!

The idea for WholeSouls came from my wondering what it would be like if I asked Michael exactly what the process would be if one were to want to completely embrace and/or transform one’s life. The initial response was an outline that would be painstakingly filled in over the next 2 years. On a fairly regular, monthly basis, Michael shared with us the deeper workings of our Personality, Essence, Life, and Relationships, extending into territory none of us could have anticipated. It felt like we were turned inside out, with the discovery that everything is more alive and beautiful than we ever let ourselves believe about our world, ourselves, and our loves. The personal, intimate, deeply moving exploration changed all of our lives on some level in quite profound ways.

When I had presented the idea to Michael, and after they had offered an outline, they then helped me define the phrase “Wholeness of Soul.” Michael described this state as something that is more an on-going process than it is a state of conclusion. Wholeness is not something that is ever completed and preciously folded into the life, but it’s more about the ability to access the totality of skills you already have, and how to gain the ones you may lack, so as to manage, create, accept, or transform ANYTHING & EVERYTHING in your life!

Most of the original group will gladly tell you that their lives have changed and that the course was far more meaningful than ever expected, but they will also tell you that life goes on and that it is the skills gained that made the difference. No one is ultimately completed; sitting, waiting to be ascended into some state of ultra-enlightenment. Most of us just feel as if we have been altered in dramatic, yet soft, loving ways that allow us to manage and create life far better, to manage and create relationships more lovingly, and to always choose Peace over Panic.

I’m not going to lie to you. This course takes EFFORT. It’s not a Quick Fix, but considering the span of a lifetime, putting effort into 6 months to a year for the sake of lovingly expanding your possibilities and unleashing your potential,… well, you are worth it.

I wish I could offer this course for free, but I choose to honor the time and energy it will take me, and has taken me, to create, channel, edit, and commit to this. I hope you can appreciate my choice. I will gladly work with any of you who might need a generous hand in accessing the course, but it will be very important for you to assume you can eventually manage to swing the cost. The experience of the course, itself, will have its own prosperous effect on you in the end! When you break down everything that is available in this course, you will see that this is actually an amazingly minor financial investment for the return. I hope you all will consider, and please invite others beyond our little “rogue” group. All are welcome!

After this session, Michael may begin meeting with each of you individually in a form or manner that you will have discovered as valid so as to teach you more specifically and long-term, if you choose.

Session L

“Accepting Wholeness”

Synopsis:
This would ideally be our final session, focusing on any final areas of importance and direction as we have gained our new integration of physical and metaphysical tools for handling ALL areas of life, whether in challenge or in freedom. This will be a session focused on a ‘graduation’ of sorts. Michael will have an updated commentary for each of us in terms of what may or may not have profoundly changed because of this course.

BONUS GATHERING: each group will have a “family reunion” 6 months after the course ends, so as to see how each of us is doing!

The Interview of "Jane Doe" & Tara!

Reading time: 3 – 5 minutes

Okay, we have a couple more brave souls who are ready to be opened like a book…

Let’s peek inside the pages of these two and see what we find. Remember the way this works? I post the interview questions HERE; TARA and “JANE” will then copy the questions to THEIR blog and respond to those questions in their own blogs. If you’d like to be interviewed, just see the rules at the bottom of this post. It’s fun!

THE JANE DOE PROJECT
i am the other woman

THE INTERVIEW

Actually, I am NOT interviewing “Jane.” That’s just the name of her blog. JANE DOE is the anonymous name used to refer to the wife of the husband with which this blogger is apparently having an affair! INTRIGUED??!! Read on…

1. If you could describe yourself through the lyrics or title of a song, what would that be and why?

2. Considering the anonymity of your blog name and profile, do you find this gives you more freedom to be “you?” Explain.

3. Considering the content of your blog (which is riviting, btw), what do you find sacred in an intimate relationship, if anything at all?

4. Is the content of your blog fiction, and if not, do you plan to reveal yourself to the “Jane” to which you write? Do you know her, see her, regularly in your life?

5. The isolation and secrecy of an affair can be as utterly lonely as it is deliciously exciting; however there is ALWAYS an element of unfulfillment. What is the worst and best thing about your being in the position in which you find yourself with this husband?

TARA’S ONLINE JOURNAL
THE INTERVIEW

Tara is a fellow student of life and shares with me in the exciting studies offered from the channeled entity known as “Michael.” I know her through my own work with channeling and writing through my web site and forum. She’s such a delightful, spirited gal! Let’s see what’s inside; shall we?

1. You seem to be a person who is inclined toward the use of divinition tools or other symbolic mediums for navigating life. What is your favorite method and how often do you turn to it for guidance?

2. I know you are a student of “The Michael Teachings.” What is it about the information that makes so much sense to you? How do you find you use it in your life?

3. I think I remember reading that you have an extensive background knowledge of Christianity. How do you find you extract and use the wisdom of Christianity, while also knowing how violent, oppressive, and divisive religion is, in general, but specifically Christianity? What phrase or short description would you use to describe the very basic teachings of Christianity?

4. Describe an experience that might have left you convinced that there is an afterlife, or at least that Consciousness may survive death.

5. In what way do you feel you express yourself the clearest as if from your soul? What medium of expression do you use? Do certain requirements need to be fulfilled before you feel you have that kind of freedom of expression?

If you are interested in being interviewed by me, here are the rules:

1. Leave me a comment saying “interview me.”
2.I will respond by asking you five questions here. They will be different
questions than the ones above.
3. You will update YOUR blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Blogger Censorship

Reading time: 2 – 4 minutes

Hey everyone! Today’s post is for YOU, and hopefully you will help me out here!

Recently I commented that I write my blog entries with more concern about being honest, raw, and shameless than writing my entries to impress anyone else or for getting attention or for presentation. I have that same philosophy in my personal and public life that just seems to be naturally-inclined to be transparent and vulnerable; not packaged or presented in any way other than as who I am. Most people in my life would agree that they don’t feel like they have to “get to know me;” they feel my vulnerability and honesty immediately and a closeness is encouraged very quickly. No surprises or facets or personas. Just me.

That being said, I am extremely mindful and considerate and perfectly appropriate for all social occasions. (Friends who know me, back me up here, please) You really can take me anywhere and I can be adaptable.

Well… THAT being said, recently I offended a fellow blogger by posting to his blog something he deemed inappropriate. I have a fairly close, extremely playful, and genuinely enthusiastic rapport with him, having contact nearly on a daily basis. My post was intended as playful, silly, and raunchy, but certainly NOT as offensive and inappropriate. My post was deleted with no indication as to why, nor was I informed in any way.

Today I asked about the situation and discovered the apparent offensiveness as interpreted from my rather innocent post. To make matters worse, the offense wasn’t actually against the blogger, but against the imagined responses from his readers. He explained he was concerned about “grandmothers” and “moms” reading my words about the perils of living with straight girls and the inevitable funk of Scooter. New York Subway/Bus riders and my readers and friends will know that is… LOL!

Now, this entry ISN’T to dispute my fellow blogger’s reaction or stance against my post. We talked and I totally, TOTALLY understand. I learned something new about my pal, today.

Instead, this post is a kind of survey. I think I may have been naive and clueless as to the motivations of others for a personal blog. Please use the COMMENTS link to answer these questions about which I am extremely curious now:

If you have a personal blog (not a commercial or specialized blog), do you blog for your audience or for yourself? Or for what other reason?

Do you censor your blog, knowing that there are certain people or kinds of people who read it?

Do you delete comments that do not absolutely praise and support you and your blog (other than spam)?

Do you believe that being published online for the world to see, along with activating interactive tools for all to use, is automatically an invitation for differing opinions and expressions? If not, do you believe that blog should indicate its restrictions and warn of censorship?

That’s all. I’m very curious now!

And fellow blogger pal whom I offended: it won’t happen again.

Thanks everyone!

Troy

A Good Week

Reading time: 4 – 7 minutes

This post was on hold for over a week… sigh… I have been SUPER BUSY submerged in codes and colors as I completely rebuild, revamp, and upgrade my site: 7paths.com By the time you read this, it should be accessible, even if still a bit shakey as I continue updating everything.
Okay, so here is the delayed post ((happy now, Parley??:
This week was pretty wonderful. In addition to a general good feeling of accomplishment in my personal endeavors, I was also rewarded with the wonders that NYC offers. I was able to see ANNIE HALL on the big screen, which is a classic Woody Allen film. There is something so heartwarming and nostalgic about all of Woody’s films. It really plays on a part of me that philosophizes about life, death, relationships… it’s like, he can capture the darkest of thoughts about these things and then somehow allow that freedom to be the actual inspiration that gives you the power to either figure things out or to accept them without incident. He’s truly a rare art. I was able to snap a shot of the big screen during the movie, too! Don’t worry; I didn’t use flash!
These classics nights at the theater are hosted by Hedda Lettuce, whom you know graces the pages of my blog quite a bit. When I find someone or something that inspires or makes me laugh, it is held with great respect by me. I am seriously grateful for Hedda, who can be completely trusted to make an entire room laugh till their faces and stomachs hurt.
Carlos, Troy, Taren, Hedda hangin’ out after the show
Now get this… as Carlos and I were eating at Burritoville, he noticed an old film poster on the wall featuring an artistic rendition of the actress Maria Felix. Check out Maria next to Hedda!

UNCANNY
MORE HEDDA NIGHT PIX:

Vanessa, Carlos, Cyprus, Nick, and I got to see VENUS HUM, too! That was FANTASTIC!! I loved her (them) before hearing them live, but now a new dimension has been added to my appreciation. Check out my photos of Annette singing her heart out!

CocteauBoy all Venus Hummed UP

Nick, Vanessa, Cyprus, Carlos

VENUS HUM @ PIANOS

Venus Hum sang/performed 3 new songs that were immediate hits with all of us and several of our favorites! I got to speak with her and thank her for her art, spending several minutes with her adorable and friendly husband discussing their hopeful, upcoming return to NYC! YAY!
Good times… Good times…
More current updates will be posted in subsequent posts…

The Interview of Mykey

Reading time: 2 – 2 minutes

Mykey has offered up his soul for interview!

So here you go! Remember the way this works? I post the interview questions HERE; Myke will then copy the questions to HIS blog and respond to them THERE.

QUESTIONS:

Would you please list your top FIVE favorite bands of all-time, along with links and reasons for their placement at the top? What do these bands do for you that other bands do not? What might be your favorite line, chorus, or lyrics from one of these bands?

You are very resistent and/or dismissive of intimacy and positive affection. Why do you think this is the case, and what conditions would need to be met before you felt safe and truly vulnerable with another person or boyfriend?

Have you ever exacted revenge on someone? If so, what were the circumstances and was the effort worth it? If not, why? And if not, are there circumstances where you wanted to very seriously, but did not?

What is the most hurtful thing you have ever unintentionally said to another person and wish you hadn’t said it?

Do you know that you are beautiful and wanted; that you are meaningful to several, if not many, people? If so, how often do you allow yourself to bask in that truth? If not, why do you think you lie to yourself that you are not these things?

THERE YOU GO!

Whooosh!
