Stepping Out on the Water

———-oOo———-

To everyone:

We are entering the month of June, and we do so with gratitude for the generous support that has been received and the great strides taken in the refurbishing project.

As tasks have been accomplished, new ones have become obvious, and they have been attended to as well. A good portion of the additional expenses have gone beyond the contributions received and have been covered personally, for the time being, by Paul and Susan on credit cards. Nevertheless, unpaid balances amounting to $4100 await payment. In addition it was discovered that the vinyl-covered deck has water damage to the underlayment, and is needing to be replaced at a cost of $6800.

Certainly Paul and Susan step out on the water each day—not to test it, but to walk on it. Each step is taken with faith and no reassurance aside from my voice and the Guidance it brings. This is the way of the two-step, the practice of the holy instant.

Today there is a need. A significant need, as you can see. If one doesn’t think about it, the meeting of the need isn’t impossible. If one does, the lack of faith that it represents will make it impossible because no step “out on the water” will occur.

Am I talking about blind obedience? Absolutely not. Blind obedience has nothing to do with the two-step or the holy instant. Abandoning one’s own best judgments and asking—not of one’s self—“What is the truth here?” followed by listening (feeling for the tone of union, and finding it) puts one in the position of being able to hear and act willingly, consciously, cooperatively.

Obedience finds no place in a partnership of equals, and what seems like “stepping out on the water” is simply the integrated act of a holy son or daughter of God who is in the discovery of what it means to be a holy son or daughter of God as an experience!

Scary? Sometimes, yes, when control and self-will are the gods one serves. Abandoning them is always unnerving, but abandon them one must!

Now, in addition to the needs I have already shared, which are associated with the refurbishing, there are the normal monthly expenses—the ones which, when met, allow for the smooth flow of the Foundation’s activities and Paul’s and Susan’s lives. These will start all over again tomorrow, and the balance in the Foundation’s account is less than $300.

It’s simple. All of us, together, are the reason this work exists and is instantly available around the globe without charge. The place to do the work, those to do the work, the equipment to do it with, and those who support its presence in the world are all part of the miracle of this work as a gift, and are worthy only of appreciation.

We invite your continued support.
