Once again, my last newsletter brought in a flood of email, mostly from my former students. That newsletter, on the subject of frustration, was about ex-students who chose subsequently to cease communication with me and the Master. All who responded to it were apologetic for doing so! I also got a lot of email from people saying how much they love the web site and how much it has helped them. On that one particular day, it seemed to be a “love Margaret day” as a lot of messages came in to thank me for channeling the Master’s newsletters.
The interesting thing, to be honest, is that I don’t feel I do anything. I just sit at the computer and write for the Master, and then I send the newsletter for editing. After it has been edited, it gets to be placed on the web site. Alan is always telling me how much I do and how hard I work, but I tell him I do not! I don’t feel I do because this is my passion and always has been. How can a passion be work? It has been my passion for 10 years now, since the web site’s conception in 1996.
One thing that does get to me is that we do not solicit funds for the web site; we never have done, as we have followed Maitreya’s instructions to the letter with regard to not having any advertising on the site. In the past, the income from teaching the Master’s courses kept the web site running and also supported the Australian Institute of Metaphysics. We have also been assisted over the years by one or two people who have given generously to assist us financially, and without their help, the web site would be long gone by now. However, we get very little support financially from web site viewers.
I personally have channeled all the information on this web site for almost no income whatsoever, because I wanted people to share what the Master was giving me – knowledge! Yes, I did have the course money and it was used wisely. As a result, Maitreya has a beautiful teaching school in Australia now (pictures of this school are on the web site) and the money also enabled us to travel around the world teaching as well as to fund the web site with upgrades in computer hardware and software, etc.
As mentiioned before, the web site was conceived in 1996. The latest figures on the site show 2.4 million people around the world log onto the web site each month! I was staggered when I was informed by our webmaster. He also expected, by the end of the year, some 3 million viewers to access the web site. I then thought if every soul sent in a donation of $10, we could do more for Maitreya in taking his teaching even further. However, we have never asked for money, and never will. Maitreya has always said what we need will be provided, and he has always come good for us. It would be nice though, if those who have a result with their healing requests would make a donation for that service. There is a form on the healing page for a donation, but it has been years since we received one. Nobody ever thinks where the money for this site comes from. We do have readings and astrology charts, but these services are not enough to cover the regular expenses, so most of the money needed now comes from myself and Alan.
The web site is being updated as I write. It is time it was done, but once again, the money for the upgrade is falling upon Alan and me, as well as the select few who are donating their time. If you would like to assist the web site and show your appreciation for the free information it provides, please consider making a small donation to assist with our work. This is the first time I have personally mentioned this and will probably not do so again. Sometimes, I feel that people do not realize what it takes to run a web site and to carry the costs of it. Even a small amount can make a difference. Sometimes a gentle nudge can enable people to realize what is needed.
