A: The energies of those involved is tuned to a specific frequency or set of frequencies that alters their perceptions slightly. It is this that allows them to focus so intently on each other and the task or tasks that they are undertaking. However, most do not recognize things at an energy level, so what they will notice is that they feel a deep engaging need to be with the other person, to work with the other person, to be in constant communication with the other person. This may, in the case of karmic imbalances, be in direct contrast to their utter antipathy for the other person. For some people this creates a very stressful situation, because although they dislike (sometimes very intensely) the other person, they cannot stop themselves from feeling the need to interact with them.
We will offer an instance wherein one would work with another on completing the master/apprentice monad. At first there is no karma, and they follow the pulls of energy that lead them to meet. An arrangement is made wherein the one who would be apprentice agrees to work with the master and learn the trade of weaving and dying. However, in the course of the apprenticeship, the master is accused of wrong doing and rather than lose everything he shifts the blame to the apprentice. This creates a karma or imbalance, and depending on how the choices play out, it can be a rather simple imbalance or a very large one.
Another life and another attempt is made to not only complete the master/apprentice monad but to also rectify the imbalance. This leads to the energies being even more intense and the emotions between the two being very conflicted. The apprentice feels the need to work with the master, yet at the same time do they feel the betrayal from the previous attempt. This discordant energy creates an intense and, usually, highly dramatic atmosphere for both master and apprentice. As for the master, this person will also feel the pull to complete the monad, but also will they feel the pull to make things “right”, to return things to a balanced place.
The feelings between the two can sometimes mimic that of stalkers, for they both will feel a strong, intense need to be together—not in a sexual way, unless that is their choice, but intense, nonetheless. If the master were to cancel, to abdicate the lesson, the apprentice would feel extreme anger and hurt and may, in fact, seek to express self in a very emotional way. If the apprentice were to abdicate the monad, would the master feel both relief and dread, for the fear of having to repay or rebalance is strong (hence the relief) and the dread (of having to face the situation again in some other life).
Those within the play, the apprentice and the master, are usually “blind” to other people and find themselves very willing to overlook actions and minor situations that would otherwise have them quite upset. For instance, someone in the midst of a monad might overlook the other participant’s lack of credentials and hire them for a job they are not qualified for, when any other time they would never consider doing such a thing.
If participating in a monad, you may find yourself ignoring personality traits of the other player that you would normally never do. Perhaps you have never been able to tolerate arrogant people, yet here is this one person that you cannot ignore no matter what who is more arrogant than anyone you have ever met. That is the power of a monad or a karmic monad.
For those on the outside watching or on the fringes of the lives is the situation sometimes confusing and frustrating. They see two people whose energies pull them in, yet these people on the fringes may, in fact, want nothing to do with the situation. The energies surrounding the pair is strong, and it can pull others into the drama much as a tornado pulls in the surrounding countryside. Others are drawn by the drama of the situation. You may find sages or fourth cycles attracted to the sense of drama that pervades the situation, yet with little understanding as to why they want to be a part of that particular “play”.
Those on the outside [of the monad or karma] who are immersed in the walking sleep, will wonder why such a person was hired for the job, or why such arrogant actions are overlooked, or how the person can get away with such outrageous behavior that would cause anyone else to be fired, arrested, or maybe even caught up in a fist fight. Unable to look beyond the immediate situation, they will simply assume that the world is unfair. Those who can see beyond the waking sleep, will come to realize that the situation is one of those dual lessons that may or may not create havoc based on the decisions of those participating in it.
As to how you should react should you encounter a dual lesson [monad] – our recommendation is always to read the energies before deciding a course of action. However, since not everyone can do this, then is hoped that there is at least enough awareness to recognize the mood of the participants and those around them, so that an aware and informed decision can be made as to how to proceed around such people. For as stated earlier, they will be as horses wearing blinders, and will see little beyond the drama [monad] that they are involved in and their actions will reflect that attitude.
