Supposing you’re an artist, teacher, or healer. You’ve bought currency and have been through the Reval.
And you’re now asking yourself: What’s next? What do I want to do?
You’re looking at being the head of a large company, a foundation, dispensing funds to individuals or projects. You ask yourself: Is management or administration what I want to be doing?
You consider donating large portions of your earnings to other funds. But you decide in the end that you’d like to play some part in seeing what good the money can do. You just don’t want to be involved in the management of organizations. It doesn’t seem to fit or be “you.”
If this were the case, perhaps consider how matters have gone with me, as one among many blueprints for life after the Reval.
Archangel Michael has been working with me and a small group of others since 2011 to prepare us for this work.
After years of discussions of what to do after the Reval, in the last two personal readings I had with Archangel Michael through Linda Dillon, on May 6 and 27, he totally re-interpreted everything we’d been discussing up to that time and eliminated my fears that I’d be tied down to administration for the next number of years.
How did he change my plans?
Up to that point, I had a complete structure for the Michaelangelo Fund mapped out. I’d been naming specific people I’d hire to fill various positions, all with his agreement. I saw myself as being involved with every detail of the work.
On May 6, when I began to discuss the order in which I’d hire accountants, personnel officers, trainers, etc., he explained that I wouldn’t be hiring anyone on the project side, other than one person: The President of the Michaelangelo Fund. He said:
“The first person you hire is your CEO. … In tandem with that trusted advisor, you then hire your team. Because you cannot hand them the team and say, ‘You work with them.’ You want that person to be involved.” (1)
He then went further and told me that he wanted me to work with no more than six people, which very much surprised me and reoriented my thinking very quickly.
“You and we have chosen long ago that you are a writer and a communicator of truth [substitute your passion here]. You are an emissary with your star brothers and sisters and that is first and foremost and will not change.
“Responsible management of projects, of money, of finance, etc., you place in the hands of those who are stellar at it.
“It is people, individuals, that have run large organizations, that have the leadership qualities, who know how to structure and manage millions and billions of dollars without blinking an eye. That is not your forte. …
“So what you are really doing is managing half a dozen people, who are tried and true. …
“Now does that mean that you simply give them free reign? Yes, it does. But there is the overarching stewardship.” (2)
I remain steward or custodian of the funds and keeper of the vision. But that’s it.
This was quite a relief to me because neither finance nor administration interest me. I’d just been relieved of much of the stress and strain of working with Reval funds.
What does that say in your own case? Well, he’s shown us that we don’t have to do it all. In fact we don’t have to do anything we don’t want to do. We can hire someone to do it.
We hire key staff, provide the vision, and assign them the work of managing and administering the organization. We don’t even need to speak with people often, he said:
“They will need to hear from you but not on an ongoing basis. In the beginning perhaps but, thereafter, maybe three or four times a year.” (3)
“You are the vision holder. You are the bringer of inspiration. You are the one who is the catalyst and the vehicle, but you are not an administrator.” (4)
So you can have your foundation and yet continue along the lines (teacher, healer, artist – in my case, writing) that are closer to your heart’s desire.
The more people we’re able to involve, the more employment we create, the more potential leaders we’re giving an opportunity to, and the more the multiplier effect of the funds we release into society. No sense consulting our stock of business savvy. This way of doing things is not the way we were taught up till now. It wasn’t even dreamed of in our philosophy.
So there’s no need for us to do everything. There’s no need for us to say how things will be at every level of our organizations. And there’s no need for us to involve ourselves in the day-to-day running of our enterprises.
If we’re really steering the ship, then it my be better that we do nothing else than that. Someone needs to keep the vessel on course and the destination in sight. And since it’s our project, that someone is going to be us.
Should you want it, you may find a position of leadership in the new society opens up for you, as AAM described on May 27.
“What is happening [is that] those who are in a position of stewardship, of beginning projects that lead the way to the building and the re-creation of what Nova Earth is truly about … become the spokesbeings for many.” (5)
Everything about what we’ll be doing will be new. A large number of organizations that do nothing but gift money, copiously, without strings, is new. Welcoming the creation of jobs is new. Treating our employees well, with reasonable work hours and good compensation packages is new. All of what we’re be doing is a departure from the predatory-capitalist model of the era we’ve left behind.
The Reval doesn’t have to mean a life sentence to tedious, detailed work. There are others for whom that may be the ideal form of service. It’s our job to find them and set them free to work their magic, leaving us free to work our magic in ways best suited to us.
