Community Update (7-25-16) - **Important**

Greetings Seekers,

I hope all is well with everyone and you had a great weekend - what a great Esoteric Theater broadcast we had yesterday! I'm sorry if anyone couldn't make it, but rest assured it's in the Theater Group as an archive if you'd like to watch/listen.

We really do dislike having to send emails like this and hope someday we can be sending much better news, however the reminder for community donations, as well as some other hopeful methods have not turned out with enough results to make things happen this month - some of you have indeed been able to donate what you can, and this is greatly appreciated as any other donation of any amount, but we REALLY need to pick things up in this area, and FAST. 

Some of you saw a certain section in the middle of the website that had a suspension notice in it, and while this was not a full suspension (merely one of our servers), and luckily I was able to pay it, it was the beginning of some major things beginning to be turned off - and I have really got things extended about as far as I can.

We've been able to come together in the past couple months to keep things going online, and have been having some great interactions as a community - unfortunately, our obligation become due EVERY month, and the further we get behind, that more difficult it is to get caught back up obviously.

Please all, let's get our minds and hearts together and make this happen, and as said in the past, if we can try to push things just a bit further a single month's fee's, it makes things easier the next month or can even cover the next completely - everything rolls over into the next. I know we can do this, we always have, and I have full faith in all of you to come together as a community to make this happen. 

For anyone who might not be aware, donations can be made from the home page on the top right hand side, on our Community Operations page where we list out our costs and how many donations are coming in, as well as directly from this link - https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_butt...  - We are a registered Non-profit Organization in the State of Kansas, USA (as validated on the Community Operationd page, and everything goes into an account we only use for these purposes, where things are paid automatically - so when these automatic charges come through and the balance is too low...well, you can imagine how things go...

Again, thanks to all who have assisted with what they can, please help to encourage others to let them know often times "It Takes a Village..." to make things like this happen, and is really difficult for just a few to bear this responsibility.

Thanks in advance for any and all help, no matter how large or small, it is ALWAYS greatly appreciated - Karma is a real thing, and we are all rewarded for our good deeds in one way or another - especially with regards for places like Esoteric Online with the great work that each and every one of you do here to help other grow.

In The Work,

Tris

The costs are already mentioned in the blog above: " For anyone who might not be aware, donations can be made from the home page on the top right hand side, on our Community Operations page where we list out our costs"

Tris,

Can you send out how much money you need right now as well as keep a tally on the level of re-occurring monthly commitments?   Or pledges to meet the annual budget of keeping this operational?

We may need to send out a few additional e-mails to get everyone's attention.

Peace and Joy.

From a member on EO:

Hi Tris, Anki

It's been awhile but given the situation I feel prompted to action.  Feel free to send to the community the message below as is, or compose and propose the idea in whatever form you feel best.  I wish you both, and everyone, the very best.  ~K~

********************

Hi

We are all affected by tough times and right now EO really needs your assistance to keep the website up.  I propose that we each dig deep and do a small dose of Karma Yoga by sacrificing one meal, saving that money, and sending that one meal's worth to EO.  The choice of what you do in that time is entirely up to you.  My I suggest you study the Scripture of your choice and contemplate a world where EO continues to be a beacon for seekers of any and all paths.  Namaste 

~Kris~

Tris,

Please feel free to post this.  Community members, if we all commit just 1.00 per month, this site can be self sufficient..... and flourish!   Let's set up a campaign to get a simple 1.00, 2.00 or 5.00 per month reoccurring donation through pay pal.  That is literally the cost of a cup of coffee once per month!!  Just to have this community available is worth it.

Together, we can do this!!

Good day Tris!

I just wanted to say how sorry I am that I cannot donate at this time. Being a disabled senior can be difficult at times and I know that you understand that. I wanted to say that I find it odd that with so many active members here you would think that more people would make donations on a regular basis. I know there are some that are really great about helping support the community that has grown so much over the years but surely there must be others here that would be able to help as well. It just seems like such a shame that so few have to carry the weight of so many. Many the Lord and Lady watch over each of us here and bless this great community and bring sufficient prosperity to it.

The infrastructure required to sustain life contains a monetary value. Depending where one lives, one income may not be enough to pay for the basics, therefore many cannot contribute. If surplus funds are available, there are many worthwhile causes people silently contribute as to not attract attention.

The long term issue is making the site financially sustaining without anyone contributing money. That requires an examination of traffic flow through the site, a survey of people’s interests and where to invest the available resources.

There is also the issue of competing spirituality sites. Everyone is competing for their version of the truth. There is only one truth, everything else is padding, therefore the issue is how to transmit and network the messages.

Maybe now is time for evaluation and contemplation. Where to invest resources and how to generate maximum traffic. That requires many people lateral thinking and contributing practical, sustainable ideas.
