Conversations with Ben…
I wrote this in 2006. My views have changed since, but I still think this is an interesting topic. The picture is from when, Ben and I met, right when Saturn entered Scorpio, 28 years ago.
“Someone in Wichita told me I had an old soul” he said. “And I suppose I do. I imagine I’ve wandering around these halls for awhile.”
“I have no idea,” I said. “I don’t think in that kind of paradigm.”
“No. I have no idea how to judge something like that. I haven’t got the slightest idea how old someone’s soul is. I have a friend that does, though. She tells me this person is older than that person and stuff like that but I have no idea where she gets her information.”
“You don’t believe in that?”
“No, it’s not that. I tend to believe what she says, actually. She makes sense but ideas like that don’t originate in me. I would never say, hey! He’s an old soul, or she’s an old soul, because I don’t know. But I figure she does. It’s not like she’s not a flake. She’s not running around saying soul-mate left and right and being all flippy. I respect her so when she tells me something like this, I figure she knows what she’s talking about. Like the woman who said that to you in Wichita. Maybe she knows. She probably does. But I don’t, because it’s not my paradigm.”
“But the idea makes sense. Some people are incredibly lightweight so it’s an explanation for that, anyway. It’s an idea that works.”
“Lightweight? You can say that again. Some people are a blank slate. It’s like they don’t understand a thing and they can’t learn.”
“I know. But I would not attribute that to old or new soul because I just have no idea about that kind of thing. It’s remote from me so I can’t use that kind of language. But I’ll tell you what does originate inside of me, though.”
“When I meet someone who acts their whole chart. When they have all their pieces integrated, or most of them. It’s like a person who is firing on all their cylinders, rather than denying who they are. Or projecting huge pieces of themselves onto other people and just completely unaware of what they’re doing. A person who acts like themselves, exactly as they are… I call that an actualized person.”
“Oh. Yes. That resonates with me as well.”
“Well, I’m not surprised. You were like this from the day I met you. Do you remember back then? Think of the pictures. Think of how we looked back then. We were very cute. We were babies!”
“Yes we were babies! But we didn’t know it.”
“I know. But even back then you were completely who you are. You were already completely integrated whether you knew it or not and this is what I’m talking about. You were something else. You were very compelling to everyone, and being young and stupid was irrelevant to that. I could give you examples of this. There’s stuff and stories from back then that proves this. You have always been fully actualized but as to how you got that way, I have no idea.”
Do you have a way to classify people you meet? And how do you think people might classify you?
