I am noticing that in this new year folks are claiming that they need money to get by, to get what they need, to get all that they want, from the lightworker fund. The lightworker fund that Steve Beckow set up with some of his colleagues, is for hardships (I don’t even think Mike Quinsey should have received a computer and a printer as well as other computer supplies.) This is not a necessity, it was only a necessity because folks would miss Salusa, that is ridiculous!
This fund is not for when you get stuck in the city and cannot get home, it is not to pay for a radio show, it is not to pay for your mistakes or your future endeavors! The lightworker fund is for those that are having a hard time paying their bills, they cannot afford oil for heating their homes, they cannot get food to eat, you can get food at the local food pantries and it is free (I find it hard to believe that there is not one in their area). Things that are necessities are as such:
Medicine and other URGENT healthcare needs
This is all that this fund should pay for, it should not be for a Radio Show, it should not be for folks that go to an Occupy rally and did not prepare for the worst and cannot get home (The Occupy people can help them or their families), it should not be for those that need computers, these things are not necessities, you CAN live without them! It should not be for those that want extra added security to their lives. I am seeing it be abused and it truly sickens Greg and myself. We cannot and will not EVER beg for donations, if people feel like giving it, great, if not, that is your choice, but we won’t beg, we may ask, but NEVER beg!
A hardship is when you don’t have heat and it is in the teens or below, hardship is when you don’t have a morsel to eat, hardship means you do not have a home to sleep at night, not if you don’t have a place to sleep for just one night, if you go somewhere and you have no money to get home or to get something to eat, well than you have made a very bad decision that is not something everyone else should have to pay for. These are the reasons why I think Steve Beckow took down the article to help Maarten Horst, it is because he is abusing the system that was set up for specific needs.
Money is the root of all evil, you cannot expect people to pay your way, I guess people must think that us Americans as well as the Canadians are stupid and naive, I don’t think that is the case, I think we hope that people are just like us and when we find out that they are not like us and are greedy and money hungry, we shy away. I apologize for these people coming into our path, I hope that money is eliminated from this world so that everyone can live fruitfully.
Don’t abuse a system that is out there to help you, if that happens this fund will no longer be available, that is how things work folks. Be honest and don’t ask for more than you truly need, be grateful for all that you do have and not what you don’t have. Greed brings anger and resentment up in others! Remember that!
