Do You Know Why . . .
Do you know why the work we do must rest on the idea of Gift? Because it is based on Creation happening in the now, requiring an act of faith of the one who is listening for the Voice for Truth—the Voice that all of you are listening for when you read a communication such as this—as well as those who wish to hear what is being said.
Faith always rests at the door of an open mind . . . and Creation happens!
Faithlessness, on the other hand, closes the door, and from that point—of ignoring the light, the love and the peace which the act of faith would naturally bring—it becomes a great distraction from the experience of your health and well being.
Inspiration, revelation and Creation arise out of faith.
The inspiration which is the revelation of Creation is “given permission” to occur by faith. Faith is the foundation of Creation. It is the primal “spark,” the fundamental impulse in the Mind of God from which Creation comes—the initiator of All That Is—never premeditated, calculated or planned: “Behold, I make all things new.” Creation is therefore a Gift from the very nature of the Mind of God.
Now, the practice of the holy instant is the practice of faith. It is leaning into the Father in silence—without premeditation, calculations or plans—listening for what you aren’t expecting. It is you, being faith, catching the wave—latching onto the impulse of Faith in the movement of God at the instant just before “inspiration, revelation and Creation”—and then fulfilling your Function of co-creator by riding the Wave which you are not creating and no longer pretending to yourself or others to be something separate or different from It.
The Course says, “To have, give all to all,” and this is not just a nice thought. It is an absolute. There is no other way to “have.” This is why everything we do is based on Gift. It is why there is nothing to purchase from us. It is why there is an abundance of materials instantaneously available without process of any kind. And it is why everyone is invited to support this work by participating in extending the gift through contributions.
Everything we are doing is meant to promote transformation, that everyone may arrive at the conscious experience and actions described here:
Now we, as the Sons and Daughters of God cooperate as co-creators with our Father in the act of extending faith to one another as brothers and sisters, that we bring no harm to each other, but rather act in unity with the Will of our Father, so that love may flow like a river through the land of our brotherhood. Our oneness is great cause for our gratitude that we are as our Father has created us, and that there is nothing else but God being as each and every one of His Sons and Daughters from His magnitude. His will be done.
