How Do You Restore Brotherhood?

How Do You Restore
Brotherhood?

———oOo———

Dear friends,

Yesterday I shared the following:

“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.”

Need Gives Rise To . . .

Need Gives Rise To . . .

———oOo———

Dear friends,

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.

Only Five Days to Go

Only Five Days to Go

———oOo———

Dear friends,

Thank you. Contributions amounting to $1,297 have been received since Thursday when I extended my invitation of support. This has reduced the amount of the current unpaid bills to $2,103, which is still needed. Continue reading

$23.45

———oOo———

Dear friends,

Twenty-three dollars and forty-five cents is what Wholeness looks like right now in the Foundation’s bank account. It isn’t a static number on an accounting ledger allowing for a comparison of something less or more than something else. It doesn’t represent poverty or wealth. It doesn’t imply respectability or the lack of it. Continue reading

You Are Invited . . .

You Are Invited . . .

———oOo———

Dear friends,

There is a current balance of $278 in the Foundation’s bank account, and first-of-the-month bills which still need to be paid amount to slightly over $4,000.

It is because everyone’s support makes our outreach possible and nourishes its constancy that when a need arises, an invitation is extended to everyone to join in making the Gift.

This is one of those invitations.

Included in it is the acknowledgment that your contributions are acts of brotherly love, giving to everyone that which unites rather than divides, that which removes boundaries rather than building them, that which restores the willingness to love by replacing the fear that blocked it.

This invitation also includes gratitude for the fact that these acts of brotherly love are demonstrating “as in heaven, so on earth,” anchoring it and creating a shift of perception . . . the movement of Atonement. Even though it may not be “sudden,” it still constitutes a miracle — a miracle in progress! Thank you for that.

Thank you also to everyone whose ongoing support has been anchoring “Gift” in place of “Commerce” here on earth, whether you were aware of it or not. Thank you for the slow-motion demonstration that the road to the Kingdom of Heaven is not paved with bargains, deals, discounts or competition, but with sensitivity, caring, inclusion, humaneness and giving — indeed, Brotherhood.

Thank you again.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES
STUDY GROUP
WITH RAJ

August 29th, 2018

THIS IS A ROUGH TRANSCRIPT.
IT IS NOT IN ITS FINAL FORM
AND WILL BE UPDATED

————oOo————

Good evening. And welcome to everyone who’s joining us on the Internet.

My purpose tonight is to convey encouragement and inspiration to help move the practice of A Course In Miracles out of a potentially “Pollyanna” form of wonderful cotton-candy spiritual thoughts and ideas and the toying with them, the playing with them in the mind to provide a good feeling, not correcting anything when correction is called for.
