Philanthropic Intent

July 16, 2010,
Claire Montanaro

I have said for some time that the ascension of the planet and ourselves cannot occur until the "I" society becomes the "we" society, which is why I talk so much about the importance of community consciousness. My heart warmed, therefore, when I learned today that the co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, has promised to leave most of his £9 billion fortune to charity after his death, just as Bill Gates and Warren Buffett began a campaign to persuade rich individuals to give half their wealth to philanthropical causes.

Of course, people like these and their families have more than enough money for their personal needs, but it is refreshing that they want to use a large part of it to help others rather than to increase their fortune, power and influence as has happened in the recent past by others similarly placed.

It is something that can be done by those with more modest assets too, even if it is putting a penny out of your change into the charity box when you are shopping, remembering that "we" applies to animals and wildlife too.  Awareness, intent and action are the keys to moving to the new level of living and being, however modest what we do may seem at the time.  This applies to everyone, everywhere, however rich, however poor.
