Nothing to Grasp
Joan Tollifson"The discovery that liberates us is not a philosophy or a belief. It is the dissolution of the imaginary problem in the openness of Here / Now."
In response to a challenge from a friend to 'distill her essential message into a concise format' Joan has written the elegant and succinct, Nothing to Grasp:http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001xCczj8-t9IrimUOpVBPZ4-xev1rkAQUQD3ZRp-nY36t_MaV416WOrhIZEBgtDiAnXfOfTrTmPTiBNjw_rzp6bec8XXZFSb8lEeB_bn6KJZxCHutrXmoqkv9QFb5kIHmQ-bJIQCPk5iYHCurNGdnTCzY6eWK4H3gt

A chap of the non-dual persuasionWould espouse it at every occasionHe'd say "There's no doer"And "No-self is much truer"Then calmly request a donationTo be serious, though, Jeff Foster has written a praiseworthy article addressing the subject of money and spiritual teachers. I thought this paragraph was one of the more insightful takes on not taking money:"Of course, if a teacher does not charge money, deep down they can still desire to collect as many donations as possible, or collect as many students as possible, or collect as much admiration or publicity or popularity or respect as possible - and the image of 'the selfless, desireless, ego-free teacher who never asks for money' can be a very profitable image indeed!"On the subject of money, our web designer, Marcus Fellowes, of Zendao confirms my belief in simple generosity. I can phone him for advice and not get a large invoice the next day - he's not an avaricious entrepreneur and he is very much in tune with our ethos.
