Four days ago an anniversary occurred. It marked thirty-two years since my first conversation with Paul, and thirty-two years of love, trust, faith, commitment and teamwork from Paul and Susan while everything they did was a gift. It also marked thirty-two years of uninterrupted support from you and others like you around the globe, making this work the consistent evidence of love and nothing else. Thank you.
The gifting continues . . . and will continue, since giving is the way it works. It has been established this way because it is healing to be engaged in love and it involves everyone. No one is left out of the act of nurturing—of being brother and sister to each other—because there is no alternative. And it clearly uncovers the fact that “private benefit” is not only unreal, it is mean-spirited, destructive, and care finds no abiding place in it!
Why make Paul and Susan rich—or, at the least, comfortable—by making a charge for everything they give away when doing so would impoverish you by not conveying, revealing or requiring brotherhood of you? Why not stretch everyone into an experience of his Christ-hood at the level where it means something, feels like something?
Indeed, it would be more comfortable to just pay “this” for “that,” like everyone else, but then you would be left in the poverty of selfishness, aloneness, orphanhood. On the other hand, brotherhood, caring, is “harder” because you have to give yourself in the process. But that’s the wonder of it! That’s how everyone’s perception of himself changes and comes into closer alignment with Who he really is!
Doing this will not make Paul and Susan rich, because wealth is not what this is about. This is about Awakening! For Paul and Susan as well! Who will succumb to the lazy ease of private enterprise first? (At thirty-two-plus years, it doesn’t look like it will be Paul and Susan.) Or, who will dare to care . . . look into his brother’s eyes . . . and remember God? In other words, who will lay down his life for his brother—shift the focused devotion from self to others—and extend himself ?
You will, of course! Inevitably. Because it’s the way Home! It’s the way everyone comes back into his right mind. And for us to operate on the basis of Gift, as we do, puts everyone, including you, squarely in the requirement to grow in this most fundamental of ways, with a relatively easy grasp of why and how to do it.
As we continue into our thirty-third year, I must once again share that the Foundation’s bank balance is less than $200 and the 20th of the month, when approximately $5,000 will come due, is nine days away. Once again, you are invited to extend the gift we make by means of your support. It does, indeed, bless the world.
