I propose that we study and act on this message from Raj:
TODAY IS FULL OF WONDER
Dear Ms. ………..…..,
Thank you for giving us the additional time. We have examined all of the options, and today we met with Ms. ……………, a real estate broker, to put the Cliffside property on the market. Her phone number is ………….. and her email address is …………, and she said that you are welcome to contact her at any time if you have any questions.
I am told that it will take from two to four days to gather all the information together to create the listing, and as soon as I have the documentation, I will forward it to you.
She estimates that it will take approximately two weeks or less to prepare the property for showing, and that with the market as tight as it is, and the demand as great as it is, it will move within weeks, if not days.
We will be very grateful to retire this loan and repay the kindness our Benefactor showed to us by his support.
I will keep you informed.
The above response was delivered yesterday in compliance with the demand letter which was received, and which I shared with everyone in the post entitled “The Future is an Assumption.”
But before I comment on that, I must thank everyone who responded to yesterday’s post! Your support kept the telephone service from being disconnected! Support is still needed, however, since a significant amount of past-due bills are awaiting payment. Thank you!
Now, putting the Foundation’s home of twenty years up for sale, resulting in today’s letter to the attorney, has put everything in a state of change, of flux, of fluidity—inescapably in the movement of Creation, but which can easily be misinterpreted as a movement of disintegration or destruction. After all, when one is involuntarily thrown into “behold, I make all things new,” when really new isn’t expected or wanted, it can be quite disturbing . . . and it has been for all concerned.
But the fact is that this is where the mental discipline comes into play—where one must behave in all ways new—which means abandoning the attempt to hold God to one’s personal opinion of “what Truth is” and “how things work”. . . or ought to.
It is the time to be utterly curious . . . not to see how disastrous what “really new” might be . . . but how miraculous really new IS!
Four people stand on the edge of what looks like displacement and insecurity when stability would be expected “at this time of life”—you know . . . when a certain degree of maturity has been “achieved”? But, no! Maturity is reflected in refusing to be offended by the disturbance of REALLY new, or the “inconvenience” of it, and demanding to see nothing less than the miracle of it! Which means refusing to exercise your “right” to object and remain committed to your preferences.
So, this is where Paul, Susan, Chris and Judy are, whether they like it or not. And the learning isn’t to LIKE what they don’t like, but to stop having their opinion, so they may look with innocent eyes and see differently!
One has to be willing to say, “I don’t like what I’m seeing here, and I don’t like the meanings I’m applying to it. Help me stop! You see? Instead of saying, “Make IT stop,” you say, “Help ME stop!” And then you humbly sit in the void—the absence of the “old and familiar” AND the absence of seeing “the really new,” until the “new” registers with you. And whatever lag there is simply amounts to how long you take to let go of your righteous indignation at being put in that position! In other words, how long it takes you to let yourself settle down.
Everyone is learning that Being is a movement, not a stable, concrete, dependable, NEVER really new experience!
Again: BEING IS NOT A STABLE, CONCRETE, DEPENDABLE, NEVER REALLY NEW EXPERIENCE.
Without being empathetic, take the time to put yourself in Paul, Susan’s, Chris’ and Judy’s shoes, because it will help you understand that A Course in Miracles is not the practice of magic thoughts, but of behavior which is consistent with Truth—embodying Truth instead of principles or rules. Principles and rules are for those who have yet to FEEL Truth, and practice truths instead. And the Atonement is that shift from head to heart.
It is time to shift from the words on the pages of A Course in Miracles to the nitty-gritty pages of your daily life, read with your Soul instead of your intellect, which can best be described as your recognizing your needs in another’s and another’s needs in yours, and in that felt union of humble regard and mutual need which it is clear to you deserves to be met, your behavior changes . . . toward your brother and yourself!
There will be more to share. Today is literally the edge of God knows what, and there is profound curiosity!
I love you all.

What is meant by being empathetic?
So, what is empathy? It's the ability to understand another person's thoughts and feelings in a situation from their point of view, rather than your own. It differs from sympathy, where one is moved by the thoughts and feelings of another but maintains an emotional distance.
What are the 3 types of empathy?
Three types of Empathy: Cognitive, Emotional, Compassionate Empathy. There are three types of empathy: cognitive, emotional and compassionate empathy; each respectively the desire to understand, to feel and to help and support.
