    headymoechick I have no idea

    A lot of people I have met that call themselves Rainbow People, do not like the fact that I have a job.

    Can I ask why someone would think that? I'm not sure I understand why having a job is so bad.

    I also don't know why I am any less of a good person for it.

    Can someone share thier opinion/ explanation as to why someone would say that to me?

    I'm not sure why they would say that...seems to me that a lot of Rainbow People have Babylonian jobs, but still have rainbow in their heart. I've always ran into Rainbows who loved everyone regardless and are the nicest and least judgemental people I know. I don't think those were "real Rainbows" you ran into. Doesn't seem as if it's the "rainbow way". *shrug* You got me.

    headymoechick, I know exactly what you mean mama.

    There's alot of really great family out there, but I have met a few kids that have an issue with me having a job or even staying in one place to live. It's odd, but you kinda just have to realize that they're judging you the same as alot of the people in 'babylon' that they try to regect. What it all comes down to for me, is that there are so many kind people out there, you just can't let the ones that judge you make you feel bad.

    lovin you sister :0)

    I suppose I understand that I am a contributing member to babylon, but I'm still a great person. And everyone has some sort of trade. We all gotta eat, right? I'm good at accoutning and bookkeeping. If I were really creative and talented I would try and support myself from the earth, but I can't.

    I just hope not everyone feels this way. Not all the people who show up on weekends and vacations are bad!!

    It's good to know I won't be rejected by all and I'm not the only one in this position.

    keep your love light shining!

    i've met rainbows who owned corporations. i've also known rainbows who lived under trees in the park. it takes all kinds. the guy who owned the corporation had all kinds of time and energy (especially money energy) to play with and to put to good use. the guy who lived under the tree taught street kids how to find food so that they didnt have to prostitute their bodies to survive. we each choose a different path, there is no right or wrong way as long as you keep loving

    a term that bugs the hell out of me is "weekend rainbow". i've been thinking about that one for a while, and it's usually used in a derogatory way. if someone has a working job and brings rainbow love and energy back to their place of employment, then isnt that just raising the vibrational level of the world? if rainbows segregate from the rest of society and stay on the fringe, then how in the hell is anything ever going to change? integrate, show by example, teach those who want to learn, but *be there* so that they know there's a different way in the first place!! we've all heard the hopi prophecies so many times, that's what it's all about!

    I know what you mean by this... There are some rainbows out there who believe that by not working and living from place to place they are not participating in babylon but I bet they still eat foods you bring to gatherings, go to food banks and homeless shelters, take donated clothes,spange people, buy stuff w/ thier spanged money and except rides. All things donated by babylon! Isn't their point to get completely away from babylon? lol I find that contridicting so for the most part they are just whining about crap to make themselves feel better. Anyway, each to their own. Nothing is right or wrong. It all depends on the person and if someone is going to be stuck up about you taking care of yourself your own way don't bother with them. Evidently they won't be much fun to hang out with and they helped you out by telling you that right off the bat. I myself am not working right now but believe me, I want to... I will prob take courses somewhere to find a job i can do and move around all I want.

    well it seems every one is in one accord over this. I get railed on all the time because I drive a truck when im not running highway child,

    personally I think it is better to make your own way threw life then to think you should be given it free.
    I have met way to many rainbows who would rather fly a sign for a day then work or even make jewlery.

    I suppose the idealogy is that to stop bien apart of the bya nd sell game your doing something pro active toward rebuilding this world...and maybe in part that theory is true, though everyone would have to stop in order for this to work...personally I think those who trully believe that theory should make there own clothes and grow there own food......theres a hell of a lot more work involved in bieng truly independent from babylon.....but then they would have to work.

    ideology and reality can differ from time to time, I think its what we CONTRIBUTE to babylon that matters, I will never drive for anything that needs a hazmat (hazardous materials) I am liscenced for this though I choose not to contribute.
    I am always on my employers to convert to a better fuel source, veggie oil /propane/' ethonal/ bio diesel.

    and in bieng concientious I am contributing someinthing positive to the world ..even though I have to walk in babylon...I dont have to walk like babylonians!!!!

    peace

    Yep, we all have to eat! A lot of us have to have "normal" jobs; don't feel bad. What matters is that you're a nice person who treats others with respect. As long as you have a job that doesn't cause more hurt than good, what's the problem? :)

    rainbow accepts peole from ALL walks of life. thats why its called rainbow, every color of the rainbow. most of the mellower colors of the rainbow dont roll with em anymore, because the sharper colors got too rowdy. in the beggining the rougher element saw a contentment that they lacked in the friendlier element, so they learned and mellowed out, i think the real problem is alcohol and heroin, alcohol makes people not care about anything, and heroin makes people lie and cheat and steal. its hard to find honest true people who are about helping people or the world, a rainbow gathering is the last place i'd look.
