Server Role Overleaf Energy in The Michael Teaching

Server occupation  as defined in the Michael Teaching Overleaves Personality Trait SystemService and essence-effacing simplicity is said to have the mark of true inspiration attached to it. The Server is the individual whose native view of the essence has connected to it a need to demonstrate adequacy. The Server will always seek out the road, even reluctantly, that leads to fulfillment of the drive to take care or another thus feeling that they have a place. Though capable of great power behind the scenes, the Stoic repose. Though highly sensitive, the Server would often rather withdraw than confront. This sort of resignation can lead to a passive-aggressive way of dealing concepts rooted in it make it the most useful for future expansion.

Life Metaphor and Implied Motto

Life is for doing good in the world. Hard work. Giving to other people.

Cultural Archetype- Exalted Arcana

Perhaps called the every man, or the backbone of society, or the fabric of the community, this is the character of simply doing what needs to be done. Often with little fanfare and reward, the Server connotes modesty in action. This Archetype draws satisfaction from a job well done. Focusing on the task rather than the reward, this is the energy of “hard work” and the “Protestant Work Ethic.” Achievements are seldom just for personal gain, but somehow must serve a purpose for something greater than themselves. This may occur either with desire or under the whip of actual slavery or perceived bondage. Because this energy is not boisterous nor overly self-aggrandizing, it often lacks status or public exaltation or the wealth that accompanies great achievement. When exalted roles speak about all of the “little people who made it possible” they are addressing the Server whose “behind the scenes” efforts shores up the ability of the more extroverted to perform. Consider this comparison: while laurel wreaths are bestowed upon the Warrior as hero, the common soldier, sadly but often “cannon fodder” is the Server. Positions generally nondescript like the staff, or chorus, or workers, or laborers, or rabble, bear the mark of an Archetype that does not tend to distinguish itself for its own purpose and therefore tends not to be recognized, nor necessarily aspire to, individual self expression. Mom, is the ultimate Server caretaker.
