After the Reval, when funds arrive, I’ll be starting off with a Canadian UBI to get our feet wet. “Getting some wins under your belt,” Michael called it, before going to other parts of the world. (1)
In discussing it, Michael predicted that we’d find ourselves as a world on a sharp learning curve in the face of what would amount to, in many places, the onset of sudden wealth.
Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 18, 2017.
Archangel Michael: [In doing a UBI for Canada] you are blessing people and you are giving what we would call emergency relief – but that does not mean that there isn’t a learning curve for many and it does not matter whether it is Canada or Somalia. There is a learning curve.
Now many are more than adequate financial managers but many are not. We are not suggesting that you would even wish or dream of controlling such a gift, but think of it in this way.
For the ones who consider themselves to be – and they may well be – brilliant financial managers, they may take that money and simply invest it in their stock portfolio. Now that is neither good nor bad but it doesn’t make it active money, if you know what we mean. So there is that issue. But you cannot control that.
But then there is the other end of the spectrum and everything in between, where someone just takes the money and wastes it. So they do not have a cushion or a roof over their head and they go out and buy a Mercedes-Benz. Now you can’t control that either.
This is not about control. This is a spectrum which we are talking about here. People are learning about a new system, a new balance and so you have to meet them where they are living.
So there is a huge educational process or aspect.
And we are not suggesting this [educational aspect] is your project because it is not. It is another being’s job to teach people the stewardship, the management of resources.
There is an assumption that human beings know how to manage [money] and that is simply not true.
Let me know where the courses are offered. For sure I’ll need them.
(1) “You don’t want to begin any foundation or any project [yourself], let me be very clear about this, where there is so much groundwork to be done.
“Not initially, because what happens then is you become bogged down, overwhelmed and feel as if the task at hand becomes insurmountable. So think of it in this way, both for you, for your team, for the organization and for the planet, you need a few wins under your belt.” (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 18, 2017.)
He also said:
“Begin at home and get your feet wet. Begin with the disenfranchised adults, women, then men, then children – because the children will benefit right off the bat regardless – and then extend yourself to what you have thought of as the marginalized populations – yes criminals, those who have been locked up because people label them mentally ill. Then spread your wings across the globe.” (AAM , ibid., Aug. 6, 2013.)
