Michael describes a system by which all human souls, themselves fragments of some causal plane entity similar to the Michael entity, are cast into existence by the Tao; and how each soul fragment has as many physical incarnations as it takes for the fragment "to experience all of life", that is, to absorb all of the wisdom that life is designed to give to each of us. Each fragment is cast in one of seven "roles in essence" which it retains throughout its evolutionary path. For each incarnation it may choose a different set of "overleaves", characteristics that will profoundly color the fragment's personality and the kind of experiences it is likely to have in that particular life. Michael describes in lucid detail the system of overleaves, giving plenty of examples of how they work together to create a particular kind of life experience. Michael also describes the major life lessons ("monads") that each fragment must complete and the workings of karma.
The number 7 pervades the system that Michael describes. There are 7 roles in essence, 7 modes, 7 goals, 7 centers, 7 soul ages, 7 levels within each soal age, etc. It is not an arbitrary number. When the complete system is delineated you can see that it appears to be comprehensive. When you consider the 7 roles in essence described by Michael, it is very hard to imagine there being an 8th role or only 6 roles. Seven seems to cover it exactly.
The Michael teachings will not give you all of the wisdom you need for a fulfilling life, but when you are ready for them they can help you form a more coherent picture of why you are here and how everything fits together.
And, as Michael says, "Belief is not required."
It reveals that believe isn't necessary as we all will learn eventually regardless if we want to or not. It makes sense of many of the wild theories of afterlife and where we go when we die and what our ultimate purpose is on this planet.
Awesome testimony of the spiritual presence of mankind!
