I’d like to post two emails we’ve received which are very saddening.
My guesstimate is that, for every one email, there are ten or more people who feel the same way or are in a similar situation.
Just to be clear, I’m not posting here emails that express agreement or disagreement with my own point of view but those which talk about their own situation.
I confess that I don’t know what to do in response and welcome any and all suggestions.
Contributions to the Hope Chest declined over the years for whatever reason. But, if there were a groundswell, we could open it again.
Should we do that or are lightworkers in general in such difficulty that it wouldn’t make a difference? Perhaps you could help us out by expressing your view.
This is a withhold: I know there are people who have received prosperity packages. I also know there are people of wealth who are considering how best to enter into humanitarian giving. Might I suggest, with all kindness and respect, that assistance to lightworkers is a wise investment and now is the time to act?
Lightworkers (and others too) are in danger of losing their homes – or have lost them and are homeless, others cannot afford medicare, some have fled the country because they cannot afford to live here, and similar-heart-breaking situations exist.
Steve, as I read your article I am filled with pain and tears fill my eyes. How do i raise my vibration when I am losing my home, I have cancer, I’m breaking up with my partner and I have no money for food or meds. I am at the end, I cannot do any more. I fear that they are going to win and finally I will not be able to raise a finger much less my vibration. I have been fighting for years. When will this be stopped?
I’m all torn up reading the Catch 22 pieces. I know I am not alone in stating “enough already”.
The reval has not happened and we’re supposed to do the work to raise our vibrations further yet the reval is exactly the mechanism that will allow many of us the “time” flexibility to allocate more personal time to this pursuit. I have children at home, massive debt accumulated during the Great Recession because I tried to do the right thing and keep my employees employed, probably longer than I should have.
I made a commitment to treat my employees the way I always wanted to be treated when I worked for others. That meant wages at the higher end of my industry (construction) for a small company, a generous days off package, health insurance, a 401K plan, tool reimbursement plan, skills education plan, etc., etc.
Needless to say, it backfired and my family paid the ultimate price for my generosity. Now my boys are approaching college age and we have no savings, no retirement, etc. Have I condemned them to a poor start in life because of my generosity? What kind of example is that for my family to follow my steps and treat others as I would want to be treated?
How do we create change when the rug keeps getting pulled out from under us when we take the initial steps? My meditations help me, but do they set a tangible example for my children and their friends to be good and DO GOOD? I know, whine, whine, whine.
Why is it always the bankers, large corporations, etc. that continue to reap the benefits in our little blue world instead of those that truly want to see change. I’m tired of not being able to move forward with plans to create change. I’m tired of feeling like I’ll be dead before the opportunities open up.
I’m tired of seeing another generation become skeptical of the possibility of change knowing they will have to take the same, or more, time and energy to get to a place of knowing that I did. Decades of life energy holding the torch, being criticized for my beliefs and on and on. When will the laughter and ridicule subside and ultimately end as the light of the new direction becomes clearly evident to larger and larger groups of skeptics?
There has to be some middle ground where this thing can start to break open for those of us who have been trapped in the cage of societal greed. It is a catch 22. It takes resources to fuel the train so it can get rolling. It then requires further resources to build speed. It then takes smaller increases to keep the train moving because it has built momentum. As long as the resources reside in the pockets of those that only care about control and their own bottom line we are at an impasse. It doesn’t matter if I raise my vibration if I am left huddled in a corner because I can not fuel my own dreams of shift and change along with the millions of other brothers and sisters in the same situation.
Lovingly frustrated beyond measure….
