"And charity is not just the giving away of worldly goods.
Charity is a generous heart, a grateful spirit, a forgiving soul, a courageous life,
an expansive vision, an exploratory mind, caring hands, persistent dedication,
and creative ideas. Charity is a visible sign of spiritual wealth.
As you express your spiritual wealth, material abundance will follow."
The keys of Jeshua, by Glenda Green, p. 200
Seeing our fundamental interconnectedness with all beings, we recognise the “refugees”, “migrants” and “asylum-seekers” now streaming into Europe as people like ourselves, desperately seeking relief from suffering and longing for happiness. Regardless of their ethnicity or religion, may they find open borders and a refuge in Europe.

I am an open border.
And if the world makes barriers, I will come to you, with everything I have.
And if a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him.
The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself;
for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
Leviticus 19:33-34; New King James Version
