Even after all this time

The Sun has never told the Earth

“You owe me,”

look what happens

with a love like that,

it lights the whole sky

Terms

In many spiritual traditions, teachings are shared as an offering that are not ‘charged’ for. In return, those who benefit give offerings to sustain the life of the teacher. Such offerings are called Dana, which means 'generosity' or 'giving. Dana is a practice in relinquishing attachment and greed; for both the teacher and the student.

 

What and how much is given as Dana varies from person to person: in some cases offerings are given immediately after receiving a service, in some cases it is given as and when material prosperity allows. In some cases offerings are given regularly over the course of a lifetime - in appreciation of the continuous value and impact of the teachings. Sometimes offerings are non-financial. Sometimes offerings are non-physical.

Spolosophy is about applying true principles and knowledge in life. It must therefore do the same. I integrate the philosophy that I teach into the financial aspects of my work. It is a practice for both myself and those I partner with in giving and receiving with integrity, non-attachment and from the Heart. 

The teachings I share are beyond value. They cannot be priced or commodified. The work I do is my vocation and I offer it as a professional service. I recognise, however, that different organisations, groups and individuals will be in different material circumstances, and that this should not be a barrier to accessing the spiritual wisdom that is our birthright (lost to us by our own folly). In Spolosophy philosophy, the Heart is the gateway to the Divine. It accesses the infinite knowledge of the Cosmos. So, if you follow your Heart you can let go of the rest. Therefore, the Heart is central to Spolosophy Terms. 
 

The world's infrastructure is currently a product of scarcity consciousness. We have all the technology to allow every human and being on the planet a free, fulfilling and fruitful life. Yet people die of obesity in one country and of famine in another. In order to truly shift the world so that we can realise the Divine principle of Abundance physically, we need to incorporate abundant principles into our economic and financial systems. We need to trust in people. We need to de-link our value from our earnings. We need to BE Abundance. Spolosophy Terms are intended to embody and create abundance for all involved.

Finally, these terms are written in recognition that the teachings I share and apply belong to all who know and have taught them, and to the Original Source of All Truth. My gift is to interpret and share them in a unique and relevant way, and combine them with the knowledge, insight and understanding I have gained through my own experience. 

Spolosophy Terms for Teaching, Consulting and Advisory are this:

 

You give what your Heart wishes to give.
