There is so little time remaining and so many details to work out that I’m going to need to share as we go along on situations that arise.
This is a history-making voyage so I’m hoping that Pat doesn’t feel we’ve shanghaied the site, of which she is the Editorial Director.
We’re preparing our flight list which Grener asked us to send to Linda. That will be the basis of who will be picked up. Our flight listed will be posted to this site and will bear only your first name and a portion of your email address. If you are not on it and think you should be, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with FLIGHT LIST in the header.
I am holding back just a few seats to be used for emergencies. But I will not use them except for emergencies. If AA Michael were to say to me that the number can be increased we would take additional names from the list of people who have already written in. And hundreds have written in. There will be more trips, everyone. This is just the beginning.
I was at a Mac workshop and signed onto my account. Three-hundred and fourteen emails downloaded.
I think you can guess that there is no way I can read 314 emails with any despatch. Moreover I need to be working away on this project so having that many emails is counterproductive. If you really do need to get a hold of me, perhaps put “URGENT:” in your header. I may only be able to read those emails.
Obviously we have had to turn from working on the Bridge Fund to working on the Voyage to the Stars. This is not a happy turn of events for us. But we cannot see a way around it. We hope to begin the work of the BF as soon as we return home.
Allegations against Linda
A prominent lightworker has levelled charges against Linda Dillon because she charges for her readings. The lightworker has said that a person who takes money for her channelings is not trustworthy. The lightworker says that I am a target for ridicule and that the dark ones are taking advantage of either me or Linda (it isn’t clear from her email which is meant).
I love and respect the lightworker concerned and honor her worries. I also love and respect Linda and honor the service she provides. (And by the way she offered to do Hour with an Angel for free and I declined her offer. As it happens, a wealthy benefactor has stepped forward and pays all costs for the show.)
Folks, there are two routes a person can go with lightwork in western societies. They cannot live on nothing. It is recognized by spiritual sources that they must earn money some way.
Some charge for their services, as does [names deleted]. What this enables them to do is to work for the Light full time.
Others choose the path I have and don’t charge for anything they do for the Light. But I assure you that I had to earn my livelihood as well. And not charging for my books and articles has had a number of drawbacks. It means I can’t work for the Light full time. And it means that I have to ask my wife to live with a man who brings in no money from his work and that’s asking a lot. No royalties after I die. Zip. She has been very loving and grateful to put up with my insistence on remaining poor.
[Please do not send me donations because I said this. I will be obliged to return them.]
I regard Linda Dillon as among the best of channels or mediums or I assure you I wouldn’t work with her. She regularly has to endure attacks like these so it cannot be all fun for her. I have worked with mediums, who have also charged for their work, since 1977. I am grateful for some of the mediums I worked with, who were also professionally paid.
I have also worked with channeled sources generally since 1975 so I flatter myself that I have a feel for good work. And Linda’s is among the best.
I am not a victim. I have been hoodwinked or misled And I also understand the lightworker’s desire to speak from her integrity. I wish I had some means of proving Linda’s integrity. I would think that we’ll all know by this Sunday whether she has integrity or not, is that not so? If I meet Grener and Archangel Michael, I will ask them personally – but I won’t need to.
If no one comes Saturday, you can have my head for a doorstop.
Since we’re on the subject, let me say as well that, because I discussed the fact that I don’t have ready access to Grener or Archangel Michael because I can only afford so many readings, people immediately began sending me donations. Thank you very much, but you can see how compelling the reasons are for me not to accept donations? Why do you suppose I have not had a donation button on my site, even though many people have urged me to do so?
Yes, you assisted us earlier by purchasing a computer. I did not ask for it and was totally surprised when the money poured in. I acknowledge you for that with warm gratitude.
But it is important that I (1) not benefit financially from any of this and (2) be seen not to benefit from any of this. I have chosen a different route than David, Drunvalo and Linda. I already have a pension and have money to take care of myself. I do not want to benefit from my lightwork given that I do not need to earn my living from it.
So I will be asking Dave to go into my Paypal accopunt and return your donations, with my thanks. It’s too important (as you can see from this current round of charges) to jeopardize a project like this by inviting charges of corruption.
Archangel Michael has on several occasions said he wants to buy me an apartment and I have turned him down several times. He’s now down to saying that I should be open to receiving it as a gift and has even said how it will come. But I will not accept it because, if I did, I would leave myself and my work open to negative charges. But remember: I already have my guaranteed source of income. Linda does not.
When allegations like these come up, they do affect me and I’m sure they do affect Linda. My stress level went up I’d say 20%. It impairs my ability to write. I had to ask my wife to give me a listening session and talk my head off to recover my balance.
I am only human. I am not enlightened. I am not a spiritual teacher. I’m just another guy like you. Unless you’re a gal.
I cannot tell you whether what we are doing is real or whether we’re all having a collective dream. But I’m acting as if it is real and going 100 percent. I think that’s what you want from me, right? It certainly is what Archangel Michael, Grener, Sanat Kumara and the others want from me, BZ, Dave, and all the other Bridge Fund workers, editors, and moderators as well. We’re working as a unit on our collective vision for Ascension (call it a dream if you want). And there is always the chance that we could be wrong, which we know.
Update on “Donations”
Dave Schmidt has prevailed on me around the subject of donations. He says it’s not a good thing to deny people the ability to contribute. He also says it would be helpful to receive donations to offset the cost of readings. But he ewarns me that if I receive donations through my private Paypal account, Paypal could shut me down.
So, OK, I relent a little. You can send donations to the Hope Chest rather than me personally and say in the accompanying message that you intend for it to go to “Readings.” I will not personally touch the money. We’re trying to walk our way through these issues, folks. Please bear with us.
(I just checked my email and the donations continue to roll in. But BZ has also told me that Dave and her recognized the situation right away and have begun returning money to people – of course, with our thanks. I will remove the passage in the earlier post that triggered this outpouring of generosity.)
(Vina has also asked me to add that “members of the 2012S / Bridge Fund team are also not in the capacity of paid employment and have also chosen to serve the light in this manner because of our passion and uncompromising belief in ushering in the shift, as well.” Thanks, Vina.)
If you’re coming on the trip, you must know that the galactics are hoping you’ll stand as a witness upon your return. We’re doing all we can to protect your identity and no one will force you to do what you don’t want to do. But we do also want you to know that we hope you’ll speak out about what you’ve seen.
