Okay, this subject is a very delicate one with regards to what Raj has instructed Paul to do:

When it comes to 'advertising' the work, it shouldn't be done with the intent to 'generate revenue'.

I agree with this; that religion, spiritual guidance, awakening, or any form of spiritual growth shouldn't be rooted in a system of payment for access. To continue this line of reasoning, we shouldn't share or advertise the work if our agenda is to generate revenue. Remembering this requires one to realize that the 'ONLY' option when faced with circumstance of lack or fear is knuckle down and keep focus with ones initial purpose, and not to give into the agenda or perspective of the ego.

But boy does my ego's perspective seem to gain strength when I worry that there won't be enough funds to cover the costs of living, leading me to forget the real purpose of this website; to be a place for people to explore their spiritual leading edges and provide a way for people to support one another in letting go of their ego's perspective.

So keeping with the true focus of the Raj work while also recognizing the financial needs of the foundation can be a delicate balancing act because it is easy to confuse the motivation of one’s invitation to visit this site and explore all it has to offer when there exists a critical need for financial support.

So when making a move to share with other sites the Raj materials, we need to remember we’re giving people the opportunity to easily find that which they are seeking, not getting the opportunity to increase the foundations financial wellbeing.

To this I would suggest the following when considering what you can do to increase other people’s awareness of the gift here:
1) Inviting forum and website administrators of other popular spiritual internet sites to make an announcement about the plethora of resources available here.
2) Inviting forum and website administrators to add to their Links or Favorites section a link to the foundations website (http://www.nwffacim.org). Note: use nwffacim.org as opposed to pointofperfection.com because we’ll be using nwffacim.org as our main URL when we get it switched over.
3) Invite your local spiritual book store to allow you to post a notice on their (physical) bulletin board about upcoming Raj workshops as well as information on the foundations website and what it has to offer.
4) Invite your local spiritual book store to add to their upcoming events sheet the dates of upcoming Raj workshops as well as links to the website for listening in to live workshops.

These are just a few ideas, but it should help you see that the real need here is to let other people, forums, and spiritual centers know of Raj’s work, and that there is a website that contains materials that might be of interest to people that are seeking it but don’t know where to find it. This can also help to address the financial needs of the foundation because in the end, increasing the number of people that know about the resources here increases the number of people that have the opportunity to support that which supports them, helping us all to reduce the level of financial commitment the community is currently being asked to support at.

Thanks for your time!
