Well, there's lots in that interview, but Yes, Kroe, right off the bat is the issue of money, so it's appears to be a material issue for them.
Personally, I find it annoying that mystics are tasked with pesky pedestrian issues like money, and it seems that they should be exempt.
Further, I absolutely do not see why they should not be comfortable and free from the silly constraints that our society and style of money (yes, there are radically different styles of money) imposes. Nor do I feel that there is some sort of moral absolute that says that it is fundamentally wrong to use your awareness to advance your possibilities... I mean, how silly is THAT?
Lusting after money, or the things that it buys, is unhelpful, sure. But simply willing abundance, including money if that helps, I see nothing wrong with that, and have done it several times myself. The first time I did it I was young and did not know to properly qualify my request/command and got an undesirable result. Later I learned that you can qualify your intent so that no one is harmed, and opportunity to get the $ you want or need just materializes out of thin air, where it is not inappropriate. Literally I can talk into the ether, at least at times, and say "Yo, spirits! I could use a grand. Let's rock!" , and presently a door opens that was not even imaginable before, and there it is.
As long as no one else is harmed in the process, I just don't see anything wrong with this. If lack of $ is making matters such that Tom or Rob can't make the most productive use of their time, that's not so evolutionary at that, eh? It makes sense that they should have what they need to be comfortable in the pursuit of their (presumably positive) objectives.
Separately, I have been given to understand that while money matters in this world, it is (for lack of a better word) classier to proceed without concern about money, having faith <ducks tomato> that the way will be made, doors will open, and the things that you need to operate optimally will be there for you.
And, it happens that TBC, or 'the spirits' or whatever, does indeed provide the materials necessary for the next experience. It's a hell of a wave to surf, but ... it seems to work!
So, back to Tom and Rob as well. For some reason, ostensibly, they seem to be manifesting limits that are arbitrary and not helpful. Maybe us boardies can finally make ourselves useful and help them past that little belief system issue.
So here's the drill: EXPECT them to have impossibly good ' good luck'. SEE that doors open for them that answer their needs. If you ASSUME that it is so with the same force that you compose a space with 3 dimensions and that time ticks away in ordered seconds, if we do that, and the spirits (or TBC) agrees, .. well, let's just see what happens!
sure, I agree with everything you say regarding moula...I have been known to "call in NPMR markers" when cornered
I try not to bother them unless it is important ; - )
I am focusing specifically on the role of someone who puts themselves out there as a teacher (a brave and important thing to do), and parsing out a subtle difference in intent, and without diminishing Robert in any way (perhaps failing at that...sorry Robert!), highlighting the intent that Tom appears to be demonstrating....very different than most of the snake oil salesmen out there on the new age circuit.
The system is likely keeping Tom in the daily grind of rocket risk analysis to keep him grounded PMR-wise and his skills sharp, or he is self modifying with that intent. Financial constraint is an intentional and useful part of the virtual simulation - an advantage, not a disadvantage, learning-wise.
Now, if he gets on Oprah next week and sells 10 million copies of the book and gets movies deals, it is unlikely that I would think less of him (and who cares what I think anyways), and it would be interesting to see what he would do with more resources.
As far as that...how about we all visualize Tom on Oprah? what color should his tie be?
green comes to mind
is there someone on the line that is in physical proximity to Oprah's estate, who could toss the book over the gate?
lock themselves to the gate until someone from the staff promises to give her the book?
stalk the entrance dressed in a TOE suit? ...book in hand should the limo stop
