Once again, I agree with what everyone has written AND would like to raise the glass ceiling a bit. If ANY aspect of an individual is embodied to an extreme there will be imbalance and pain and there will be changes made. In the course of one lifetime, the observation that the core is still there despite radical changes, is valid and yet in accordance with energetic resonance, over a period of many lifetimes, the changes will become the new core until it becomes an extreme then another core will be the new launch pad until it becomes an extreme. It is my observation of several people I have known and how I have evolved over the course of many lifetimes that a soul will keep incarnating until it has manifested ALL the core types and INTEGRATES THEM ALL IN A BALANCED WAY. Only then does it have free and easy access to ALL the infinite variations possible and is wise enough not to overdo ANY expression. That allows them to act appropriately (nothing in excess and nothing left undone) to all circumstances. I have also observed that those old souls are usually, creative, spontaneous, intuitive, compassionate and free to experience all of life’s possibilities. In other words – they have realized their own innate Divinity which is THE CORE of everything.
