Two of the things that concern me about life after the Reval have to do with our impact on other people; specifically, the employees of our foundations.
Let me paint a scenario in which the two factors play.
We’re now the head of a large and wealthy humanitarian foundation. Several waves of the prosperity program keep us topped up and we’re irrigating the planet.
We handle more money than people have ever done on our planet. The outlay of $200 billion (which I think is higher than any contemporary billionaire possesses) might not cause us to stir.
What we say goes. And what we find are two things. First, that things that simply peeve or irritate us, by the time word reaches the frontline troops, have in the retelling become greatly magnified.
I need to remember that my moods will be reported on and to keep my communications balanced, grounded, and moderate.
And second, that the vasanas or core issues that we do have, never mind those that are attributed to us in the retelling, will, I think, themselves be magnified by the power we then possess and the lack of restraint we then feel.
It’ll be as if someone removed the chains … and we can damn well be however we like. If people have not completed some of their unfinished business, the ditching of the suppression button may result in lamentable exchanges.
Here, I need to remember that I’ll lack many of the restraints I once had and watch for myself making people around me feel afraid or withhold for some reason.
Circulating among the employees at lunch in the cafeteria and listening to them is one good way to earn employee trust, which is a bulwark against negative exaggeration.
I’ll be reminding myself that wealth can magnify my vasanas and that my moods can and will get exaggerated in the retelling. These are both pitfalls in this work that I want to avoid.
The awareness of their possible existence has me increase my efforts to complete my vasanas before the RV. The center is where I need to make my home.
