How did SRF help those it was firing?
SRF recently fired 12 more individuals at their publications facility. Yeah, they called them layoffs but those people have no unemployement because SRF refused to pay into the unemployement system and have no benefit extension options because SRF refused to pay into that system so the difference between firing and layoff is zip.

Before the firings SRF said it would help those people. So what kind of help did they give them? Did they help them find jobs or help them in some other way? Many live in SRF housing so did they give them a break on their rent for a few weeks?

In what form was this help?

As SRFwalrus is no longer a public board and therefore useless I am deleting this message.

I know someone who only got a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as was told to just ask someone for directions. Then they said for him to put his name on a piece of paper and drop it in the prayer box on his way out. Of course, they never read them.

I received a rather small "severance package" & health coverage for a month. Since I'm still looking for employment some five months later, it didn't last long.

Do you really think that's true? I can't immagine that they don't do healing prayer circles at Mother Center. I mean there's a lot of things they could do wrong, but lying about the intention to do healing prayers, which don't cost anything and take minimal effort, that seems like too much to blame on them...

Of course they do prayers! Don't worry. What they do is put the box with names in the room during a meditation. They consider that the prayer-force generated by their powerful meditation (ha ha) circles around the box and reads them and God gets the message.

No, Alice, you really are in Kansas. And no, they don't read them and pray for each of them. In their own minds Master is reading everything that is placed in the box, which is of course true. It is also true that Master doesn't need the box! It is only yet another tool to connect them with Master. To get to Master with a prayer you need a box? These people have no clue. SRF's understanding of that way the God works is pathetic.

I work for an Ananda business, and we also have a healing prayer box where people who come to visit us often put prayer requests. We ALWAYS read the names and offer the people up to the light. I'm also a member of the Ananda Healing Prayer ministry. Every month, they send out three names to each person in the ministry, and we pray for each person once a day.

This is why I have such a hard time believing that those at SRF in similar situations don't really pray for the people like they "advertise." We always pray for the person, and put the intention of healing light on them.

If this is true, that they don't even say the names out loud, I am shocked and dismayed that things over there have come to that level of ignorance...
