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.
Gift is the activity out in front,
and there is no sanctuary in the back
where a secret god is being served.
Transaction sets the structure
of the handling of goods or services
and what the goods and services can be
before anyone even shows up
to enjoy the “provision.”
Gift arises in the relationship which occurs
because someone has shown up and
there are a “brother’s eyes” to look into
and remember God.
There is no confusion about what we do, because for thirty-two years we have looked into our brother’s eyes, remembered God, and reported back to him — to every one of you — what we have seen. In many different forms this has been done . . . workshops, newsletters, books, audio tapes, the Internet . . . and never has it been unclear that this extension of Love has been just that and nothing else.
It has been a joint extension, and I thank every one of you for that because your gift completes our gift, making a Wholeness which is essential to its holiness, integrity and truth.
