"the best love ... is the one that makes you a better person, without changing you into someone other than yourself" ~ susan lynne schwenger 13 Aleksandr Gryshchuk QUESTION: This time this is going to be me asking questions about the most feared topic of all - casting. But truth be told, I haven't read this anywhere... So, we choose our soul role before doing the grand cycle. That is clear. We choose our ET, whose energy has an impact on our energy. But do we choose our casting? When 7 souls referred to as "cadence" are cast from the Tao, do we choose, among ourselves, who goes 1st, 2nd, etc? And do we choose our secondary/tertiary casting? Susan Lynne Schwenger: ET is your essence twin, the other half of your whole Michael Teachings says: That's an interesting question. I don't recall anything about it. I would ASSUME that since the influence of casting is so prominent there must be some choice involved. It can't be haphazard. This falls into the category of theory, however. The main problem I have with the theoretical side of the teachings is that it's knowledge without deeper awareness. My interest these days is on knowledge that transmutes a deeper awareness of how we can immediately improve and change our lives all the way down to the soul level. That drives my passions. Susan Lynne Schwenger says: it is my understanding - you have the same 'casting' in every lifetime, and, all the way through all the grand cycles -casting is fixed, but, role can change in each grand cycle so, you are cast - your casting, and, in each grand cycle, the castings will always remain the same, throughout the grand cycle that fragment is in, and, this stands true of all of the other grand cycles that the fragment will have experienced, the casting is both fixed, and empowered by the will of the force of the fragment, it will always be exactly the same. ~ susan lynne schwenger 13 "Only the role holds the potential to change in each grand cycle, so, you along with your will, will eXplore each of the roles, in all of your assortment of grand cycles at least once, in role: as, scholar, sage, priest, artisan, king, warrior or server, or many more times than once, in a fragment that has experienced, such as you 12 completed grand cycles, and, are currently in the 13th grand cycle, you have always been 'king' cast, but, your roles, they have changed" (The Source thru Susan Lynne Schwenger) 10/aug/2018 Matthew Miranda Howe says: I think this is the answer to what I asked in another comment not sure how i missed yours when reading, thank you for your insight. Michael Teachings says: Yes, you have the same casting in each of your lifetimes. According to Michael, I've had my casting of 5/7/1 for 922 different incarnations in this cycle. However, I can't imagine having had the same energetic configurations in my previous cycles or any cycles yet to come. That would be rather monotonous. That would also mean we would continue to incarnate with the same people, the same cadences, the same greater cadences, the same entity, cycle after cycle. I don't see the growth in that. According to Shepherd. I'm a bit of a bumbler in this lifetime, but I'm assuming my collective self is much more experienced. You could almost call me the Dave Entity. ;-) Susan Lynne Schwenger says: 'casting' i've been told NEVER changes, just role, which to me, makes sense kind of like... ESSENCE KNOWS - ROLE is HOW WE PLAY iT !!!
