Brotherhood & Intimacy
As of this moment $3,840 are still needed in order to cover the operating expenses which are due on the 20th, and I am renewing the invitation to everyone to consider the place you fill in making the gift to everyone else—not yourself—which extends Love at no cost in the middle of an imaginary global marketplace where countries are being redefined as competitive businesses, profits are the bottom line, fear is the motivator and limiter, and humans are just a labor force which needs to be replaced by robots because they are more dependable, don’t require sick leave, vacations or maternity leaves, don’t fight for higher wages and don’t interfere with those who are governing.
It is no small thing to turn the attention back to human needs and the meeting of them as the measure and bottom line of Being, where brotherhood and intimacy, involvement and patience, cooperation and joy constitute the only important, meaningful fundamentals to be served. But that is what I am here to be (“do”). And it is what you are here to be (“do”). And it will take persistence, even though it is a journey without distance.
It will take persistence because the final aggressive push is on to magnify mammon instead of God—to serve greed and power and arrogance, better known as egotism, which, by design, undermines and destroys the experience of brotherhood, cooperation, intimacy, joy and the absence of fear.
Do not let it escape your attention that these fundamentals—brotherhood, cooperation, intimacy, joy and fearlessness—are the specific antidote to greed, personal power, arrogance, abuse, domination, deceit, alternative facts, fake news, manipulation, division, totalitarianism, supremacy, inferiority, war, and fantasy promoted as reality. These cannot exist in the environment of an informed brotherhood, when Brotherhood is, Itself, the eternal foundation from which everything else comes forth!
Separation, isolation, independence, self-absorption, self-appreciation . . . in the presence or practice of these, one can create the illusion of peace, safety, balance and equanimity. But, being a practice of exclusivity, like living in a cave, withdrawn from the consciousness of the infinite movement of Life, it is a state of un-consciousness. However, the only place one can create this illusion is “in the world,” in the presence of everyone else, and the movement of Life “tests” the peace, safety, balance and equanimity. It impinges upon the act of ignore-ance, wearing away the will which holds the illusion in place. And because the illusion isn’t real the impact undoes it! In doing so, it puts one in the “frightening” position of discovering that peace, safety, balance and equanimity are only to be truly found in the intimacy, involvement, patience, cooperation and joy of Brotherhood—of being with each other in the attention of Love.
This is why everything we do is a Gift. And it is why I keep teaching, inviting the awareness of caring enough about your brothers and sisters to share what I am teaching, and to do it through a conscious act of giving. It is also why I am putting Paul in the position of constantly giving voice to the understanding which permits the shift from commerce to Love, from “transaction” to “giving,” even though it looks like it is a constant state of lack which he must “beg” to have filled, over and over again.
He is beginning to understand that this is what education is! Not repetitive statements of lack and need, but repetitive illumination of “a different way of looking at this,” which prompts clarification together with new behavior which more closely approximates Reality—that of the Sons and Daughters of God.
So, tomorrow is the 19th. The practical needs are what they are, and there will continue to be practical needs beyond the 19th. I invite everyone to join in making the shift from mammon to God, from selfishness to caring involvement, both individually, in small ways like this, and out loud as change in the world.
