We lived on 3000 a year from his teaching salary in those days. But he traded a small house for an orchard, had make extra payments. Due to us being
born, he didn't take the 5 year teaching, but finished off at 3 years and so was the lowest salary. In fact his first years teaching was in the
kootenay area, where we couldn't find a house to rent, so we all lived in a converted chicken coup barn. And it was cold.
Always been at or below the poverty line for our family size, minus the few years he had a produce store when my parents were slowly splitting up,
(they're separated but not divorced but broke up years ago), when there was income for a while before he finally went bankrupt, but he put it all into
building up the store, we didn't even get the furnace replaced in the farmhouse that he eventually gave away to his friends druggy sons. So, not sure
what you're on about.
It doesnt take money to do things, it takes brains. Despite the things we hold as wrong, that occurred with some of dad's decisions, our family
always forgives, strives to understand why? why do people behave poorly at times, what needs healing in them? (in his case its more that he and his
brother were raised in foster care when his mother became ill, and also...I can see the dino tail in his aura, he is annanuki type, controller type).
We work really hard to ensure everyone goes ahead, thats why most people are here on earth, to help family who are stuck in their ways so they don't
keep coming back. So despite we see the light and good and always encourage everyone helping each other. But my father and his brother were very
intelligent, and respected by many. Uncle masters degree in physics, he took walls of computers in UBC in the late 50s and turned it into a literal
desk sized computer. He was going to get his phd working for a nuclear fusion facility in Australia, at the time it was one of 3 world wide, but
bailed. He ended up North, teaching and built his ham radio and didn't just talk to astronauts and China/Russia, but they sought him out.
Its not money that does things, its brains, having the vision and putting the energy/work in. Also in his case, good networking skills. And they
were always respected. And my father has some selfish tendencies and we all had to deal with the fallout, but he had tons of energy, intellect and
was an idealist despite it all, wanting a world of equality and social justice. Lots of light and goodness in him, just not healed from his own
childhood issues. We're pulling him and everyone through no matter what.
