We are very grateful for the support received since our last update. The needs were met on time. As we approach the 20th of the month, your support is once again invited in order to meet the expenses of approximately $5,400 which are coming due. The need is immediate.
Your consideration is welcomed.

Contributions have been gratefully received and a large number of the first-of-the-month bills have been paid. Everyone’s help is still needed, however, to meet the rest of the expenses in the amount of $2,700. As always, the need is immediate. I thank those of you who responded so quickly and I am inviting everyone else to add their support to the extension of the work we are doing so that the gift might continue with ease.
“To have, give all to all,” is not just a wonderful idea or principle to think about, it is the undoing of the idea that says, “To have, buy!” It is a new way to look at things, which elicits a new way to behave. One could carelessly conclude that “either way you have to pay,” but the truth is that one way, you have to love, and the other way, you don’t. Continue reading
Transaction is control.
Gift is not.
Transaction serves a secret god
hidden in the back room
while the provision of
goods, merchandise or services
out in front
pretends to be the activity. Continue reading
It is the Father’s Will that His Sons and Daughters not suffer the illusions of sin, sickness and death. It is the Father’s Will that healing and correction of all inequities be experienced here and now, not after you die. It is the Father’s Will that Holy books not be construed, in the name of God, to justify the ungodly, the terrifying, the destructiveness, or that which is terminal or debilitating in the human condition.

There is still a significant need for support with only three days to go. Your help is invited to cover the balance of $3,200 which is due on the 20th of September.
We have been very quiet for the past four weeks, and I thank everyone for your patience. It has been a period of challenge wherein choosing between the Voice for Truth or the voice for fear has not been casual, but an absolute requirement, since the voice for fear has been so aggressive. The choice for peace had to be made daily—even hourly—and still does. But learning is occurring and the choosing is more consistent.
The dynamics of fear, once one engages with them, convincingly misdirect the mind to untrue perceptions of all that is true. Therefore, I guided Paul during this past month to study and contemplate certain passages in the Workbook, including the following from Lesson 151: “All things are echoes of the Voice for God.” I instructed him to use this as his mantra often because the ego always wants to get personal about every lie, suggesting that the thoughts are “his” in a mind of “his own.” The underlying message given to him was that everything was not all right, and he was to blame for “it”—whatever the embellishment it suggested.

PAUL: I need instruction before this day begins. Yesterday I could not abandon self-righteousness and anger. I couldn’t stop being mad at those who want me to help them make their dilemma more tolerable rather than correct it and be free of it.
RAJ: Be very clear. Your function is to give voice to the Voice for Truth, both in your words and in your mind. The voice for fear, on the other hand, invites you to forget your function with great insistence, accompanied as it is with emotion.
You must be very alert. When you find yourself ruminating on the awfulness of things, don’t believe it. And don’t believe yourself! Be conscious enough to recognize that you are beginning to wallow in the unconsciousness of God . . . and stop it immediately. Continue reading
