Need Gives Rise To . . .
Need gives rise to that which meets it. It is the active precursor of fulfillment rather than a static statement of emptiness — “I am needy.” Need is the first indicator of movement occurring, drawing the attention toward its destination — “I need what?” — which awakens curiosity, desire, and the motivation to embrace that which is needed.
The moment imaginary independence from the Father was gained, the moment fear and guilt became the driving factors of existence, at that moment when the Sons and Daughters of God forgot Who They were, the need to remember became paramount! And from that moment on, They were interminably confronted by the contradiction to Their new experience of sin, sickness and death. You could say that the Actuality of Them — Their eternal Holiness, Perfection and Life became to them promises to be fulfilled, Atonement to be experienced, Salvation to override and replace the surprising and unfortunate consequences of independence.
If you are reading these words, you are on your way Home. This means that the need to remember is not being experienced as eternal damnation to be suffered without relief, but rather that a recognition — a remembering — has occurred in you. The “pull” of your divinity has caused your “need” to be experienced as hope and expectation — the “vital signs” of a living Son or Daughter of God — and you have become encouraged to do whatever it takes to remember God by looking into your brother’s eyes and, indeed, all of Creation without introducing your own private interpretation of It any longer.
You are aware that this isn’t easy, and that it takes encouragement — the support of the Holy Spirit, your Guide, or me. You are aware that in spite of your divinely inspired hope and expectation, your conditioning as an orphan conspires against your coming Home, distracting you with doubt, fear and guilt, tempting you with faithlessness to undermine that hope and expectation. You are aware that you need others to confirm God in you and that it is your Function to confirm Him in them as well. And you are told that each step closer to Home that you take makes it easier for everyone in their journey.
Your Awakening is an act of Brotherhood. It is impossible to do it alone because the Sons and Daughters of God are not alone, even if They temporarily believe They are.
This Movement, this remembering, is growing around your globe, in spite of the apparent evidence to the contrary. And calm courage, quiet persistence of attention to Truth — and giving voice to It — needs not only to continue, but to increase.
This is our task and our Function — to give voice to the Voice for Truth — under the aegis of the Northwest Foundation for “A Course in Miracles,” so that all, no matter when, no matter where, may find Truth expressed, without process, and share it with others instantaneously, without process, because it is a Gift!
This is our sole purpose.
Everyone’s help is invited at this time in support of this activity because there is a need. The need is urgent, with $1,200 worth of unpaid bills, and $5,000 more due in three days, on the 20th. The need continues because the Movement continues:
Truth must replace illusion.
Atonement “pulls” us to It.
The Movement is happening, and we must be the ones to anchor It in the world because we are the Sons and Daughters of God . . . remembering Who we Are.
