Soul Age Levels

OK, just one more post on the earthbound Soul Ages and we’ll move on to the Soul Ages that happen after we’ve completed the Physical Plane.

Within each Soul Age there are 7 levels.
So a person can be said to be living at 5th level Baby, for instance—or 1st level Mature—or 3rd level Old, etc.

First Level
At this level of development within any given Soul Age, you’ll feel timid. You’re just dabbling your toes in the water’s edge of your new awareness. You will, on average, spend about 2/3 of your time at the previous Soul Age awareness.
So at 1st level, Young, you’ll spend a great deal of time back in the comfort-zone of 7th level Baby perception.
You’re likely to still seek out Babies to pal around with, attend churches, temples or mosques that teach a more fundamentalist, judgmental, us-vs.-them viewpoint than you would ordinarily seek out at later levels.
Other organizations you’ll join will tend toward the suspicious, xenophobic variety, as well. You may join the KKK and rise through the ranks to the level of the Grand Poohbah or whatever the top official’s title is.
You’re still seeking approval from higher authorities as you begin to experiment with the idea of heading out into the world on your own ticket. This is the time when you’re most likely to become Mayor of anything from a large town to a fair-sized city.

As a First Level Mature you’ll spend a lot of time at 7th level Young. You’ll probably find yourself in highly visible professions like show-business, politics, etc.
These MAY be the politicians who bring a slightly more liberal viewpoint to their politics while, at the same time, trying to keep the status quo going when it comes to funding their campaigns — thereby giving their constituents whiplash.

One exception to this rule MAY occur for some people at the bridge between the Mature and Old Soul awarenesses. The Mature experience is so uncomfortable that some Souls may catapult themselves into the Old Soul awareness [spending more than 1/3 of their time there] just to get away from all the angst of the Mature awareness. One way to do this may be by seeking out Old Souls to spend time with. This would certainly have a calming affect on the newly minted Old Soul and, since many Olds are agreeable to teaching a few willing students, this sort of arrangement may be fairly common.
I don’t know this for sure, it’s just a scenario that makes sense to me.

Even 1st level Infants will spend much time at the instinctive level they experienced before they took on their first sentient lifetimes.

Second Level
A bit more confidence is beginning to be experienced now. You’re becoming more accomplished with what you can expect to encounter at the new awareness level. Now, the percentages of experience begin reversing and, by the time your Soul has moved a fair way into its 2nd level lifetimes, you’re spending about 2/3 of your time in the new awarenesses and 1/3 back in the old comfort zone.

Third Level
At the 3rd level, you’ve got the basics down as far as living this new level of awareness. So, most likely, you’re experiencing your current level all or almost all the time. But, you’re pretty much keeping this new knowledge to yourself.
You’ll spend a lot of time alone—contemplating your navel, so to speak. You’re still not entirely comfortable or confident in your new development stage. So you’re taking the Soul Age apart and putting it back together in as many ways as you can think of as you puzzle out all the new concepts.

Fourth Level
BINGO! You’ve got it now. You know what you’re doing and you’re ready to show the world what you can do with your newfound knowledge and skills.

At the Infant 4th level, you’ve got the hang of survival and your lifetimes are probably getting longer. You may even move to a harsher climate and a more complicated society. And now you’ll really get down to creating some heavy karma.
Since your conscience isn’t yet developed, as an Infant you’ll be among the majority when it comes to joining gangs and becoming serial rapists and/or killers, doing drive-by shootings and the like. You may grab a rifle, climb a tower and kill people you’ve never met because of some imagined slight.

As a Baby, you’ll be out there making sure everyone else follows the rules [YOUR rules, of course]. You’ll push your Fundamentalist religious viewpoint. You might bomb an abortion clinic or two. And you’ll make damned sure everyone knows Gay Marriage Will Destroy Society As We Know It.

As a Young, the world is your oyster. You’ll push for clear-cutting old-growth forests; you’ll be indignant at the idea of saving endangered species; you’ll be all for burning out the rain forest if you can supply one more cow to Burger King, etc. etc. Whatever your hobby-horses are, you’ll ride em hard and put em away wet.
You’ll have the bestest eye-candy spouse money can buy and your kids will be the talk of the PTA with the best grades and the most after-school activities in the district.

As a Mature, you’ll likely march against all the things those pesky Young Souls are doing [and that YOU were doing not all that many lifetimes ago.] Save the forest, save the owls, save the whales and do it all without smoking.
If the government of your country does something of which you disapprove you’ll be out there protesting it. You’ll make sure everyone else knows about it, too. You’ll chain yourself to a fence and you’ll go to jail to make a point.

As an Old, well, what can I say? You’ll be watching all those youngsters from your easy chair with a quizzical look on your face. Then you’ll pull out your philosophical tome and try to forget all about them.

Fifth Level
Now, things may start to get uneasy again.
On the one hand, you can pull out all the stops and become eccentric. Other people might look at you scratching their heads in wonder at how way-out you are. Your friends might tell you to your face that you’re weird — and you’ll take it as a compliment.

On the other hand, you’ll begin to catch a glimpse of your next level of development. So, Babies start to get a sense of the Young Soul Age and Matures start to look ahead to the Old Soul viewpoint. It’s kind of like getting to the top of Mt. Everest only to discover that there’s a whole mountain range ahead of you still to climb.

The later levels can be downright dangerous — to everyone else.
On very rare occasions a Baby may reach for extreme power and the world will find itself faced with someone like Hitler, Stalin or Nixon. Or G W Bush.
I’ve read that Hitler was exceptionally precocious in that he pulled off his rise to power at 5th level Baby. I believe Nixon was 7th level Baby and G.W. Bush is, I’ll bet, a late Baby — though I don’t know that for sure.
Such inexperienced Souls will hand much of their power over to someone who is already firmly entrenched in the Young Soul awareness — that’s when we see the puppet-masters like Cheney, maybe Rove and, possibly, Kissinger.

Sixth Level
If you’re one of those Roles that enjoyed the eccentricity of the fifth level, you aint seen nuthin yet. Now, you’re going to get REALLY busy.

Remember all that karma you’ve created along the way? Now’s the time to clean it up. Even Souls that prefer to sit by the fireside will find themselves driven to be out and about in order to find those folks they owe restitution to.
Particularly if you’re one of the mid-level Soul Ages, you’ll have a hard time settling down — but everyone will get a case of the jitters at this stage. Youngs and Matures find it difficult to slow down and care for themselves anyhow and Sixth Level makes it even harder than usual to find time to do that.

And Olds have to clean up ALL the karma they accumulated and didn’t mop up at the ends of all those Soul Ages that lie behind them. After all, even souls can procrastinate, and most of us pulled a Scarlett O’Hara every so often along the way. So Olds will probably have a fairly hard time at 6th level, too.

Toward the end of Sixth Level you’ll begin hunting around for someone to teach as you prepare for what’s coming down the pike.

Seventh Level
First of all, 7th level is the time to rest on your laurels. You’ve completed an enormous task and you’re feeling pretty proud of yourself. You can recognize the folks who are traversing the 7th level by their smugness.

Infant’s have survival all figured out and might start to swagger — maybe taking more risks than they used to.
Babies have the rules down pat now and very well may spend a lot of time trying to convince everyone else that THEY’VE cornered the market on how to live, how to get to heaven, how to raise the best children, that they have the best morals, etc. etc. etc.
Youngs probably have more money and more power than anyone else in their spheres. They’re convinced that THEY’RE at the top of the heap and nobody’s going to top them. Ever.
Matures are similar to babies in a lot of ways and they, too, are likely to see their morals as the ones everyone should share — or, at least, aspire to. They’re likely to look at the Youngs of their acquaintance and marvel at their shallow lives [little guessing that they shared those exact values not all that long ago.] Emotions and relationships are what it’s all about. Period.
Olds will be pretty worn out by now but even so, they are likely to compare themselves to people of other soul ages and perceive themselves as above all that ‘pettiness’, ‘anger’, ‘angst’ or what have you.

Secondly, now is time to settle down again and teach someone what you’ve learned as you’ve traversed your latest Soul Age. This is one of the more enjoyable levels [or so I’ve read—though having spent my life teaching and feeling a bit burned out on it at the moment, I’m not so sure about that—but that’s for another post].

Anyway, at the end of each Soul Age, you seek out at least one student and teach them about the Age you’re wrapping up. So, a Young might do a series of seminars on how to make bundles of money; a Mature might do couples’ counseling; and an Old feels compelled to teach at least one person everything it has learned throughout its tenure on the planet.
The Old Soul can take its time about it, though. It gets to keep coming back at 7th Level Old till it feels ready to cycle off the planet. There’s that, at least.
