I use the term a lot, but what do I mean by it?

To me every person has certain forces working in their lives – and it’s different for every person.

On the soul level, I believe that every person is made up of the same universal aspected essences that ‘make up’ the gods. However, we are each comprised of different essences and in different amounts, and we are certainly more complex or diluted than the gods. (i.e. the gods are pure, raw essences of an archetype, whereas we are comprised of many archetypal forces). However, depending on which essences are most prevalent effects our personalities in many ways. For instance, some people may have strong essences of order, and logic, of earth based practicality. Others may have strong essences of chaos, and emotion and water based intuition… or fire based passion… and so on and so forth. Astrological charts delve into such essence and predisposition on this level.

Physically there are the genetic factors. Someone who is genetically small will often pursue interests which aren’t as physically demanding and may be more mental or artistic and someone who is stronger and taller may be more prone to be involved in sports or heavily physical activities. This, of course, is just a very generalized example.

Then there are the emotional and psychological factors – which are partially influenced by soul-types, and partially influenced by environmental factors when developing.

All of these factors – and more – go into our “predispositions”. Quite simply, we are predisposed to prefer or to default to certain behavior, thoughts, emotions – patterns – than to others…

"I have designed my style pantomimes as white ink drawings on black backgrounds,
so that man's destiny appears as a thread lost in an endless labyrinth.
I have tried to shed some gleams of light on the shadow of man startled by his anguish.

~Marcel Marceau
