The Need to Be
October has been a month of faith, trust, listening, involvement, ongoing commitment, fearlessness in action. It has been a month of more deeply learning that the persistent call for faith, etc., is never justification for being discouraged and giving up. Why? Because the call for them is the element which actualizes fulfillment. And it actualizes fulfillment because it brings them into play!
It is not an easy lesson because the ego suggests that too much faith is being required. Too much trust! Too much fearlessness! “There should be relief from need,” it says. And it suggests that one must have done something wrong if there is no rest from having to have faith, if the demand is ongoing, and therefore the call is a mark against you — insulting, demeaning, embarrassing, a punishment — completely overlooking and distracting you from the fact that “faith (like hope) springs eternal from the human breast.” Faith is forever the natural precursor of what faith gives rise to — fulfillment — and it is the embodiment of, the movement of, and the meaning of Grace.
Whatever requires us to practice faith, trust, listening, involvement, ongoing commitment, and fearlessness in action is requiring us to stand in the presence of what they bring forth, and when this is understood, “need,” instead of suggesting lack, becomes more correctly identified with the meaning of the word “desire” — more truly identifying “movement of fulfillment.”
In the absence of the personally involving and insulting connotations which the ego applies to it to distract you, “need” can be seen innocently, having much the same meaning as “seed” — the presence of Wholeness in emergent form, needing only to be “watered” with faith, trust, listening, ongoing commitment and fearlessness in action in order to become visible as “need met.”
Fulfillment continues to be the order of the day for Paul and Susan, and for me as well as you. In other words, “needs met” continue to be the Order of the Day, no matter where we are or what we do. Desire must bring forth its Purpose. It is the Law of Creation, and the Movement of It.
Divinely speaking, Creation is “The Need To Be.” God is “The Need To Be And The Being Of It.” And Love is the Gift, the “impulse” which gives Life to the Seed called “need.”
I began by saying October has been a month of faith, trust, and everything else we have talked about . . . and the month is only half over! Yet, with your support and participation in making the Gift, the needs were met and the deferred taxes were paid on time.
All of the things I have shared about these past fifteen days have been lived in great detail . . . and continue, although with a little more grace. We approach the 20th, five days away, and its usual $5,000 expense, with less than $85 in the Foundation’s bank account. End of the month expenses will immediately follow, with utility and phone bills. And so, I extend the invitation once again, making note that contributions made through PayPal are able to be instantly transferred into the Foundation’s bank account.
Thank you to everyone for your support. It has made the month miraculous — needs met that seemed impossible to meet and unexpected lessons learned about how relevant and down-to-earth the holy instant is.
Thank you again.
