I have just replied to an email asking, “Why do I charge money for my Intensives? Why don’t I do it free, for Love?”
A question from poverty consciousness! Jesus may well have taught spiritual truths for free, but Jesus did not travel on our airlines. If all my food was given me, if all my airfares were free, if all my living expenses were for free, if the venue was free of all charges for every participant . . . yes, I would do it for free! For heavens sake, I drive a 19 years old car! Why do people get the idea I must be wealthy? I am not, but I am very rich in every facet of what I will take with me in consciousness when I depart my mortal body. I am rich in Love. I am rich in marriage. I am rich in children. I am rich in spiritual insights, wisdom and experience
. . . yes, I am rich, and very very fortunate. Carolyn always says, “We are here to open hearts, not wallets.” So true. Some participants have said to me, “You are the best spiritual teacher I have ever encountered, but you charge so much less than others of your calibre. Why?”
Why? Because I remember being broke, and I have compassion for these people. We have never turned away anyone who needed to be at an Intensive but did not have enough money. But . . . they have to be genuine.
So when I get a question like that, it is a reminder for me to consciously . . . choose Love!
