DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

I am far from being a Course In Miracles scholar. I only started reading it in August. But I can share my experiences so far. If you are totally unfamiliar with the material perhaps this shouldn't be the first article you should read about it. Then again, maybe it is. It was channeled by an entity that I prefer to refer to as Jesus 2.0 in the early 1970s and two academic types at Columbia University acted as the scribes. It is over 1200 pages. I won't go into its teachings here but essentially, you “pass the course” when you come to the realization that the world around us is illusion and that only the peace and love of God is real and you no longer listen to the ego but to the holy spirit which is just a name for one's own inner divinity.

I have found a lot of peace that I didn't have before. Well, ok, that's not exactly right. We all have as much love and peace inside of us as anyone else does and that love and peace is god. But while we are taking orders and are under advisement from the “ego” part of our minds and consider ourselves separate from god we don't get to experience that peace and love. I am now much more in tune with my inner divinity. When I close my eyes I can connect immediately to the Holy Spirit and my mind is peaceful, not full of random chatter. OK, so I have more peace. That is important. What else?

At the start of January I was in the same crappy health I have been in my whole life. I have never liked to exercise. The track at my gym is 18 laps/mile. At the start of January I would all but kill myself by jogging all of 3 laps!! I could walk all day and I would walk two miles but I couldn't jog even one-sixth of a mile without gasping and gagging lol. By the end of January after jogging every day in spite of all egoic reasons not to I was up to jogging two solid miles!!! Yes, it is impressive. I am amazingly impressed. Heck, if I knew that so much progress could be made in such a short time then I would have done this DECADES ago lol. Another benefit of the jogging exercise is it brings every thought to mind which stopped me from doing it before and I pretty much blow those thoughts out of my head by continuing to jog in spite of them. As stupid as the ego is, it will stop a particular tactic or approach when it sees that it is not working.

When I speak of the ego I need to make one thing clear… I know that it doesn't exist independently and that any effect that it can have on me is because I, to that degree, believe in its existence and influence.

I have to also make note that the people I have met in Course in Miracles communities (I am in several) are jewels. It is so nice to have found a spiritual community where the individuals participating are not only fun and loving but also intelligent. A real conversation of depth, humor and understanding, sometimes bordering on the intellectual, is prone to break out at any time amongst these people and I love it.

There are two areas I would like to improve in my life and one is to have a special relationship partner female and the other is to improve my financial condition. I know, this is so unusual, right? Well I have faith that these areas will be wonderfully resolved in this coming year just started.

There are people I know that don't have a primary focus of source teachings for their spiritual path and this is a somewhat dangerous condition because there are many teachings and many schools of thought and while some like to say that all of these say the same thing, the truth is that they often say the 180 degree diametric opposite one to the next. It is wonderful to have such a beautiful source for my spiritual path. I won't get fooled again.

Highly recommended!
