The All Knowing Aspect of God
Cultural Archetype- Exalted Arcana
Ivory Towers may be thought of as the preferred location of the Scholar, but only when they are stitching the threats of events, facts, and ideas into a workable theory of the fabric of reality. The nerd is the modern version of a long tradition of the ardent learner, researcher, and archeologist of knowledge. The Scholar is who we turn to for credible information. We hold erudite and lettered expertise in high esteem though usually disconnected from the workings of daily life. Usually preferring to go it alone, seldom is anything more stimulating to the true scientist at the heart of all scholars as a collegial debate or a dive into a research or exploration project. For any person who has ever turned their attention toward the deep understanding, investigation and perhaps even dissection of a topic they hold dear, then you have touched your inner Scholar.
Scholar Role Overleaf Energy in The Michael Teaching
All that is available to learn, acquire, collect, archive, organize, study and observe has been willingly engaged by theScholar. Able to adapt to the immediate situation, the practical Scholar will always look for the best vantage point, attitude, or goal to maximize the all the knowledge that can be learned. In his glory, the Scholar will radiate the glow essence it essence, having grasped and assimilated all that the Universe is and the realization of unity. Can anything be more practical than to know and realize your own divinity? No but only when the Scholar maintains his flow and willingness to allow in and move with now information. Problems can arise for the Scholar, like the ivory tower theoretician who is more interested in preserving his sense of being in alignment with his dogma than his dedication to what is new. The obstinacy causes stagnation of thought to occur. What was once an organic flexible and clear process of knowledge gathering and understanding is reduced to stubborn machinations. The strength of a scholar is in the neutrality and non-attached clarity of Observation. A Scholar who embodied many of these traits was Galilee Galileo.
Life Metaphor or Implied Motto
