GOD GIVES BACK FOR HELPING MOTHERGOD CHURCH
‡ GURUDAY CONTRIBUTION ‡
‡ TESTIMONY FROM BOB ‡ PLEDGE FROM BOB ‡
I am conscious that You said, SINCE GOD IS A GREAT GOD SHE WILL REWARD YOU MANY TIMES OVER. GENEROUS SOULS HAVE GREAT POWER WITH GOD.
Well, Ma'am, after sending in my $80 check to cover my pledge donation on Saturday the 16th, here on Sunday the 17th, THE NEXT DAY, I had an unexpected casino payout of $79 to the good, which included and ended with a $75 win. (photo enclosed.) I had put in $20 so machine paid, as shown, $99, which is an odd amount. i might have continued playing with the odd amount, but since i had just won $75, i did not want to push my luck.
i was, Gururasa, struck my this unexpected amount, and could only wonder about my $80 check. i thought there might be a relationship, but i will have to think over that since the payout was an odd amount and was $1 less than what i put in the check.
Do you Ma'am, or any of the readers have an opinion on this?
RESPONSE FROM GURURASA
BOB, RE. GIVING: MOTHERGOD IMMEDIATELY WANTED YOU TO KNOW SHE IS GRATEFUL
& YOU WILL LOSE NOTHING WHEN YOU GIVE TO GOD'S WORK - NOTHING AT ALL.
THE ALMOST EXACT AMOUNT SHE PAID YOU BACK RIGHT AWAY WAS TO ENCOURAGE
YOU, BUT LATER, YOU WILL GET AT LEAST TEN TIMES BACK FOR WHAT YOU PUT
IN - TEN TIMES 80 OR AT LEAST $800. THIS IS HOW GOD WORKS. THE FIRST PAYBACK
IS INSTANT OR PRETTY QUICK, THE REST COMES LATER. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE
ODD DOLLAR, OH, YE, OF LITTLE FAITH. YOU PROBABLY SAVED OR WON THAT SOME
OTHER WAY. BY THE WAY, YOU SAID THIS 80 WAS ON TOP OF THE TWENTY YOU GAVE
ME? I'M SORRY, I NEVER RECEIVED $20. FROM YOU. IF YOU THOUGHT YOU SENT
IT WITH THE PLEDGE, THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE ENVELOPE, HONESTLY.........LET
ME SHARE A STORY THAT JUST HAPPENED TO ME. I HAVE POOR RELATIVES IN LITHUANIA.
I DO SENT THEM CHECKS, LIKE 100 and 500 AT ODD TIMES. BUT THEY AREN'T
EXTREMELY COMMUNICATIVE, AND MOST OF THE TIME, DO NOT THANK ME FOR ANYTHING,
SO I WAS GETTING KIND OF DISCOURAGED HELPING THEM. BUT YOU SEE, IT TORMENTED
ME. JUST TO GET THE TORMENT OUT OF ME I PRAYED & PRAYED. I KEPT WISHING
THEY'D ASK ME FOR MONEY, BUT THEY WERE TOO PROUD. IN FACT, ONE OF THEM
IS SO ANGRY I DID NOT GIVE HER A LARGE SUM OF MONEY (THEY THINK I HAVE
MUCH MORE THAN I DO, I SUPPOSE) SHE HAS NOT SPOKEN TO ME FOR YEARS......BUT
THE OTHER COUSIN IS NICE & COMMUNICATES SPORADICALLY. FINALLY, TO
END MY TORMENT, I MADE A DECISION. IN JULY, MY BIRTHDAY, EVERY YEAR I
WOULD SEND MY COUSIN $500. AND ON XMAS I'D SEND HER AT LEAST ANOTHER 500.
FOR THE FAMILY. CASE CLOSED, TORMENT GONE. I SENT THE CHECK. MEANWHILE,
I WAS TALKING TO MY TAX MAN & HE TOLD ME THAT I DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH
DEDUCTIONS AND STUFF ON MY TAX RETURN & I SHOULD THINK A BIT MORE
ABOUT IT. HE GAVE ME SOME SUGGESTIONS OF THINGS I HAD NOT WRITTEN DOWN.
I WENT OVER IT & CORRECTED MY TAX RETURN. A WEEK LATER WE SPOKE &
I ASKED HIM HOW MUCH I HAD SAVED BY CORRECTING THE TAX RETURN. HE SAID,
$500. THAT IS GOD! WHAT AMAZES ME ABOUT THE DEVOTEES, IS THAT AFTER I
WROTE MY STERN LETTER THAT THEY MUST DONATE & DO VOLUNTEER WORK, SOME
OF THEM DROPPED OUT. THEY WERE PROBABLY ANGRY I ASKED FOR MONEY. BUT I
DID SAY, WHATEVER YOU CAN AFFORD. SO IF THEY OFFERED A SMALL AMOUNT, THAT
WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING. BUT THEY OFFERED ZERO, & JUST DIDN'T TALK
TO ME AT ALL. IF A PERSON IS POOR (THERE ARE MANY STORIES IN SCRIPTURES
ABOUT THIS, BOTH YOGA & CHRISTIAN) THEY MUST GIVE TINY AMOUNTS, EVEN
IF IT BE IN THE PENNIES. BECAUSE GOD INCREASES WHAT YOU GIVE. SO IF YOU
GIVE .50 GOD WILL RETURN THAT FAST, & THE $5. GOD WILL GIVE YOU IN
TIME. BUT YOU WILL GET IT. SOME PEOPLE GET DISCOURAGED BECAUSE THE BIG
PAYOFF IS NOT IMMEDIATE, & THEY LOSE FAITH. AND QUIT GIVING. BUT IT
WILL COME. DURING ALL MY YEARS OF POVERTY I GAVE GENEROUSLY. THEN I BECAME
FAIRLY WEALTHY AND GAVE A LOT. MY GIVING MADE ME RICH. TODAY GOD HAS GIVEN
ME TOTAL SECURITY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE & IT IS BASED ON A LIFETIME
OF GIVING. I
Dear Gururasa, Ma'am in honor of Guru Day, i wish to present and organize some sayings from the Sri Guru Gita, which i found at pranakasha.com
root of meditation is the Guru's form,
that light which is but the foot of Shambhu, a foot
particles of dust from whose feet,
the root of ignorance,
The purpose of the Guru:
Guru's form one should remember continually.
the only reason for the world,
how the devotee sees the Guru in relationship to God:
Shiva is angry the Guru is a savior,
Hari is angry the Guru is a saviour,
Guru only is the world entirely,
Glory and honor to Shri Gururasa, who is the Will and Shadow of the Great Lady Mary upon Earth. May Shri Gururasa enjoy great happiness upon this fortuitous and happy day!
GURU AND MASTER RASA
bow to the great Avatar Rasa who's sacred feet are worthy of worship
World has long needed Her Guidance. She can lead us along peaceful
I met with Rasa, years ago, by Her pond and in Her garden and we discussed my religious past. I was born in Christian Science, and since they have no ceremonies, I had never been baptized.
GuruRasa saw this as a serious deficiency and wanted to correct this matter. So, I felt I should accept Her help, and She then baptized me.
I have, however, up until now, not given this serious consideration because of my original upbringing, and did not realize that this is momentous matter to most Christians.
And, so now I know that I have received protection from evil forces that I did not previously have. GuruRasa also said various prayers in my behalf and was interested in removing evil forces from my life
I thank Her for this effort on my behalf!
