Wow, where to begin.
It has certainly been a true blessing, and humbling experience to be able to bring to all of you Esoteric Online over the past 4 years now. By all means, it hasn't been easy, but it has truly been my pleasure to do so, and if to help even just one person on their individual path - it all becomes worth it. Those who truly know me, know how deeply passionate and caring I am for each and every one of you as an evolving soul, and the community as a whole in it's part in this evolution.
Part of my personal obligations to Esoteric Online have been financial, and has kept the ship afloat thus far, again something I have been deeply satisfied in the depths of my heart for being "appointed" from various planes to do so. But change is the only constant right, and change has come to my ability to continue this as before - as my employer has decided after 2 1/2 years they don't have enough work available for me to stay aboard, leaving me without any source of income at this time.
Of course I will continue to do what I can, when I can in this respect, always - however this is the very situation I have stressed as that is why EO is to be and needs to become self sustainable, at least financially so that it can continue, and any other issues could be addressed as a "side-note".
All EO donations go directly into the Paypal account that pays for all of our financial obligations to various 3rd parties - which maintain our platform, bandwidth, and overall functionality. In this manner, even if I were to no longer exist altogether, the community would live on. So for now, the deterministic factor if EO continues to be available when our URL is typed into a browser, is truly each and everyone of you too. If enough is helped with, it will continue and thrive - if more is raised, please note this is not an account which pays my bills, so would simply be available to offset following months costs. If the donations become an amount that deems beneficial to show in real-time, for all of you to see when the goals have been met each month, I will re-enable this functionality.
So, the day has arrived for everyone here to decide if Esoteric Online continues to be available to all of us as well as new seekers on a path, or if it's not important enough to a certain portion of 6,500 people to do so. Time will now tell, in the Wind of Change.
Hopefully, things will continue to change and I can once again carry this burden individually if need be, but all of you have a right to know the current situation as it stands today.
In The Work,
