I’ve discussed various processes of validation in this blog; however, maybe it’s time to include a nice long quote from Michael about validation. This is an excerpt from an Open Michael Workshop (OMW) transcript for “Validating Your Profile.” Since that transcript is only accessible to those who have become members of the OMW Group, I’m not posting a link for the full transcript. For those of you who are members, it’s a reminder of the caliber of transcripts that are there for reviewing and reading.
[MEntity] Validation is a Monadal Process: a process of returning to a state of wholeness that is compromised of seemingly contrary or divided forces or states.
[MEntity] This Wholeness is ultimately greater than the sum of the parts.
[MEntity] Validation, then, is a constant dance between Internal and External truths.
[MEntity] When one insists on one or the other, division is the result, regardless of how true something may be Internally or Externally.
[MEntity] But there is a solution, even if only temporary, along the way to True Validation.
[MEntity] And along the way through True Validation.
[MEntity] And that is through the truth of: I DO NOT KNOW.
[MEntity] Or: THEY MAY NOT KNOW.
[MEntity] Taking the example of the homosexual teen who has struggled with accepting his sexuality, and has done so with great love, but is rejected by family for having done so, with their insisting he is wrong or bad, how can Wholeness for the teen come from this?
[MEntity] He would embrace these conflicting truths, allow them to exist, under the umbrella of “THEY MAY NOT KNOW” and “I DO NOT KNOW.”
[MEntity] In this case, “They May Not Know” would refer to the fact that the family may simply not understand that that this difference in sexuality is of no threat, no consequence, no sin, and nothing more than a small part of him. This grasping of their lack of knowing can help to cultivate patience, and to help deflect the personal feelings of rejection and hurt that come from their lack of knowing.
[MEntity] “I DO NOT KNOW” might refer to the fact that he does not have the skills right now to manage the rejection, the necessity to educate them, the impact of their words, etc.
[MEntity] NOT KNOWING is always a viable bridge between conflicting truths.
[MEntity] It “buys you time,” allows for patience, compassion, effort, awareness, insight, perception, etc to come into the process.
[MEntity] To be even more inviting of those helpful qualities, it might be helpful to add: “It is okay for now… that I do not know.” or “It is okay for now, that they do not know.”
[MEntity] All of what we have shared above can help in the process of validating your Profile, Overleaves, Essence, and all channeling that might come through our channels, as well as your explorations of self, relationships, choices, and life.
[MEntity] It can also help you in moments of conflicting truths where the battle to impose an External Truth over yourself, or to impose an Internal Truth over others, is simply useless and pointless.
[MEntity] True Validation never comes through imposition, but through education and invitation.
[MEntity] If you find that you are uncomfortable with a truth, or trying to force a truth, it does not necessarily mean that this truth is not valid, but that you “do not know.” And that is as profound to embrace as knowing.
This time, I’m not going to add much to the quote. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. I think it dovetails quite well with my viewpoint that truths and beliefs are incomplete. I’m not even sure how I developed the mantra, but I know that I got part of it from Michael. But it adds some ideas that I’ve only alluded to, also. Just because one doesn’t know doesn’t mean that one stops trying to know. It’s accepting that there is MORE to know. It’s not throwing ones hands in the air and declaring “I don’t KNOW!” as though that is an ultimate truth and the end of the subject. It’s only a moment of now. Who knows what you’ll know tomorrow?
