The interesting thing is the fact that I always had enough not only for my own needs but also for those of Maitreya. Recently, I have been counseling a graduate student who gave up their job and went into spiritual work full time. They are going through what I went through in the beginning – learning to have trust and faith. It is a scary time as they see their bank account decreasing. I know they will be provided for financially – perhaps only what they need. The rewards will come later, but they will come, and much fear is being removed by the situation at hand. You have to give and give and give when working for Spirit. So many people write to me and tell me that they want to work for the Masters, yet they are not willing to give anything of themselves to do this. They will not even make a donation to the Maitreya website. It is even worse when it comes to study work and doing courses with a Master. However, the more you do give – whether in time or money – the more will come back to you. It is an actual law of the Universe. What you give out, comes back!
Over the years, I would often be awakened in the early hours of the morning and asked to write a newsletter for Maitreya. I would get out of bed and do it, while the Self part of me wanted to stay in bed. When I was asked to do something for Maitreya, I would do it regardless of time, distance, or finances. I remember a friend calling me once from the US when I was teaching a course in New Zealand. She told me that I would be doing a course in the US in October of that year. It was then May, and there was no way I could visit the US. I did not have the airfare for both my husband at the time and for myself. It did not look good, but she insisted I was going.
