One reader was sharing how hard it is to contribute:
“I have tried numerous times to donate and have failed. It is by no means a fault of how it is set up. I would get distracted and it would time out, my internet connection would fail, I didn’t have my credit card with me.”
Hey, I could say the same thing.
And it could be said that the same difficulty gets in the way of doing many things – most things perhaps and certainly many things of real significance.
Please use the donation button in the feature post at the top of the blog to make a voluntary monthly contribution.
I won’t go to the peace rally at Granville Square today. I’m too tired.
I should write letters to the folks at the meet-up I just attended. But I’ve had a long bus ride home.
I should post that neat article on relationships but … let me look at it again tomorrow. And then tomorrow I’ve forgotten.
You know me. I see patterns everywhere. So what pattern do I see here?
The pattern I see here is that it’s hard to move from a change of mind to a change of action. There are actually four steps that I’ve observed. (1)
Change of Mind
I got it. I heard it. I agree. I was thinking of it in a way that was unproductive. Thank you for explaining the matter to me.
Change of Attitude
Now that I’ve changed my mind on the matter, I see that I can’t maintain the old attitude I had towards all related matters. If I change my mind on that key point, it changes where I stand, how I lean, how I orient.
So where before I did not support the course of action you offered me, now I do. I’ve shifted from being unfriendly to it to being friendly. I’ve changed my attitude, orientation, or leaning.
Change of Heart
Boy, I’m really affected by that shift in my opinion. I’ve opened up to this new way of seeing things and it’s had an impact on me. I didn’t know how many children went to bed hungry or the extent of honor killings around the world. And now that I do, it’s causing a real shift in me. My heart has been impacted.
Change of Action
I actually want to do something about the way I feel. I want to act on it. What’s being asked of me is easy enough. I simply haven’t wanted to do it, haven’t warmed up to it, or haven’t made the time for it before. But now I am. And so I want to take the time to do what’s being asked of me.
It’s a way I can contribute, make a difference, participate in the larger movement behind the concept and on behalf of the world. Put me down for one, please.
This is precisely what Shakespeare was referring to when he said “there’s many a slip twixt cup and lip.” Shakespeare knew that human beings get distracted and may change their minds in mid-course.
Our distractability probably comes from having been saturated by the cabal with messages via the mainstream media that convince us that sex, money and power are what are desirable, wholesale political or economic change is impossible, resources are limited and must be competed for, etc.
That plus food additives, electromagnetic airwave manipulation, chemtrails and all the other ways the Illuminati tried to dumb us down.
After all we’ve been through, many of us may still be in a state of paralysis. I’m sometimes in it. You may be. I once called it our “lethargy.” (2)
That’s what we’re up against when we think of building Nova Earth, not just supporting this team.
So how to inspire and empower support and change is a missing piece for me. But we’ll find that missing piece. We have to because we have a huge amount of work ahead of us and much of it depends on being able to inspire and empower.
We have to overcome our lethargy if we’re to end hunger on the planet, gender persecution, war, etc. And we have to know how to send out the call to build the new structures and have people respond. This is only a dry run. And it’s taught us so much.
No other generation before us would even have considered what lies ahead of us. It’s amazing that we’re even talking about it.
But we are. And now we have to take that talk and turn it into action.
We came to tear down the constraints of the old order, help the planet ascend, and build the structures of the new. All of us and each has a role.
Keep this blog running to play its part. Please make your monthly subscription donation today. Only two more days left to go.
KH sent this email in and addressed it to you. This is KH taking action. It didn’t have to be in support of GAoG. It could have been in support of any cause that contributes to the world’s workability.
Dear Golden Age of Gaia readers,
Why I choose to donate to the site:
I am so grateful to all involved in this site, and the time it takes for all those involved in providing this valuable information. I know there are many sites that provide “spiritual teachings”, but for me this site offers a little bit of everything. It’s my go-to site, it’s my daily newspaper if you will.
As I have been learning and growing from the information, meditations, radio shows and information and wisdom I gain, I feel that each donation I choose to give is aligning myself to putting my money (God’s Currency) to work for the greater good.
I’ve donated to political candidates and worked for political candidates, only realizing later they don’t seem to care about the average person. I realized that change begins within each one of us and the current system is what we are attempting to change.
I decided to align my donations to the “boots on the ground,” those who have the infrastructure already in place to enlighten many.
I don’ t have a website where I can send out these messages. I don’t have a blog and why re-invent the wheel! I feel that as I enlighten myself, and in kind, donate to this group, the money is spiritual currency and I am glad to do my small part in keeping this valuable information coming for all to read for free.
If this information is helping so many align with the new, then eventually we will begin to see our dreams manifest on this beautiful planet we all call home.
I have everything I need and My “wants” are in my dreams! Having said that, I feel that my donations that help continue this valuable information for free, for ALL, is priceless!
THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED IN THIS SACRED SERVICE,
And here is one from S who tells us she’s in Australia:
Dear Steve and team,
I just want to thank you all. I’ve been reading your blog daily for the last 3-4 years and I can’t tell you how many times it has scraped me up from the dungeons of despair when I’ve felt so helpless and afraid for all of us.
My compassion for our fellow brothers and sisters of our world, for the suffering, the corruption, the lies and ignorance to them, the control, the poverty, the disease, just becomes too much to bear sometimes.
I can’t control the aching and the desperate wanting to wrap my arms around each soul, to heal and protect. When I’m feeling low and afraid, I know that I can turn to your site and read several posts that will steady my faith in a beautiful future.
I love you all, for your selfless and tireless contribution to our awakening humanity and although I can only afford a little, I hope that my small monthly contributions can help somewhat. The loving energy in your written words instantly uplifts me, and lightens my load.
In the face of occasional ridicule from family and friends, for believing in all that I do, for believing in a “golden age”, I can’t allow my faith to waiver. I voluntarily carry the burdens of the world on my shoulders, of the pain and challenges and so I am prone to bouts of anxiety.
My challenge is to positively detach as the ego holds on for dear life. I have spent the last 10 years peeling away all my useless debris and there’s still a way to go, but I am now clear as to why I am here, just as you all are. To light the way, to inspire, to uplift, to share divine truth, to be an example of profound kindness and generosity, to hold open the doors of awakening.
And I have decided this year, after hiding away in my comfort zone for too many years, keeping my gifts locked away for fear of failure and success, that I will do this best through the vehicle of small business. When people lay down their dollars, it is often easier to catch their attention.
Regardless of the highs and the lows that can accompany an awakened aware individual, I will continue to plough away, peeling and clearing as I go, with a knowing in my heart and a deepest gratitude for you all.
Good luck with the new business, S. Yes, I agree that that’s why we’re all here: “To light the way, to inspire, to uplift, to share divine truth, to be an example of profound kindness and generosity, to hold open the doors of awakening. “
