I seem to no longer have the magic thought about fame. I no longer need to be famous to be happy/complete/fulfilled.
I don't want to produce lots of publicly accessible works, that can be consumed passively without interaction with me.
Such things do not meet my need for social interaction.
I want instead to meet individuals and groups who are willing to be challenged and to challenge themselves to go deeper into the mind, to discover the many forms of unforgiveness we keep, to meet unforgiveness with gentle certainty and then to discover the treasure that unforgiveness hides.
What has changed I guess, is that I no longer see fame as a necessary means for that personal work, and in fact it may even detract from it, since people I meet with would first have to take me down from the pedestal they'd put me on.
This week, unexpectedly directed by Spirit, I went on a Forgiveness Adventure to the Miracle Café in London (5+ hours on the train) and ended up staying the night with Ian Patrick, founder of the Miracle Network and the person I'd gone there to forgive. We talked about me and Jules hosting a Miracle Café event, but then having forgiven, some things came clearly to me in the night:
- I don't want to become a public figure (not like Ian now is)
- I don't want to be placed in any position of responsibility.
- I don't want to be in a formal teacher role at all, at any point, even temporarily.
- I don't want any money to change hands, as that would imply inequality between the 'teacher' and the 'taught'.
Yet I still have this sense that there are Coursey people in the UK I am to meet.
I started making notes for a new advert to put in the Miracle Network magazine. The last time I submitted one, Ian changed the words of my advert to make it more professional (i.e. the exact opposite of what I was aiming for), so this time the words will be submitted as an image with one of Jules' lovely photos as a background, thus protecting the Editor from temptation.
When I got home I gave up trying to write it myself and just asked what it should say:
Freyr and Jules, representatives of the Holy Spirit, will speak for Him to you if invited. You need not give them money, but are responsible for housing and feeding their bodies for the duration of their visit.
"The miracle substitutes for learning that might have taken thousands of years. It does so by the underlying recognition of perfect equality of giver and receiver on which the miracle rests." -- T-1.II.6:7-8
Together, let us save thousands of years.

When I showed it to Jules, she had many attack thoughts (thoughts about the various ego responses such statements would elicit - how we would be perceived) but also agreed that it was entirely accurate.
I have my own set of attack thoughts.
I also have a theory that the primary purpose of the advert is to challenge the Miracle Network. They may refuse to publish it. I see either outcome as helpful.
