If we seek to understand this from a spiritual perspective, one which we can each include in our individual development, we would discern the call to use our spiritual knowledge, not only to benefit our own lives and affairs, but also those of others beyond our personal acquaintance, especially those who seem subject to unjust threats, such as the people of Iraq at this time. Transmuting our own awareness does of course automatically affect the whole. Yet service implies something more, putting aside ones individual sphere of concerns to focus resources on assistance to others.
Such a release of the apparent pressure of concern for personal needs, to devote personal resources to helping others, is the higher meaning of "donation." For inhabitants of the developed world, donating time to apply mental and spiritual attention to collective concerns can seem more expensive than sharing money. And yet, if you are already spending some time daily in prayer or meditation, adding on a minute or two to heal the world is really not too great a sacrifice, is it?
Sharing the blessing of your own relative calm and prosperity (compared to humanitys vast majority), and spiritual knowledge of prayer and visualization techniques, is one, powerful way to offset the risk of only being on the receiving end of blessing. And you may be quite amazed when you hear the news about improvements in those issues which seemed beyond your scope of influence, after holding them in your daily prayers. This New Moon cycle calls us to initiate habits which promote divine justice, to harvest as well as share those fruits of wellness which belong to each created being, by right of divine love.
