Our Community is a small organization, which was created for the
publication of the spiritual literature with the purpose of spiritual training
of the population and creation of an atmosphere of tolerance in conditions
of close coexistence of the representatives of various religious movements.
We issue the journal " Secrets of Eternity," being the sole Ukrainian
spiritual journal, which is distributed in all large cities of Ukraine.
Our mission consists of the following:
a. Publishing materials about different
ways of spiritual development. With accent on attention to more advanced
methods - OBE, Astral Projection, Dreams, etc.
b. Organization of educational groups for spiritual realization.
c. Creation of a web site in Russian similar to SpiritWeb.
We adhere to the belief that there is no one correct path exists for all people for spiritual realization. Attempts of separate religious groups to prove that they are the carriers of absolute true and all others are sheep going astray cannot result in anything but religious division and hatred.
Each religion and culture is valuable and unique in itself. Therefore we publish materials on different religions and cultures and their roles in the life of the modern community and allow the reader the right to independently choose the information necessary for him.
Along with the edition of the journal, we intend to create a web
site devoted to questions of a person's spiritual self-realization, similar
to SpiritWeb, only in Russian. The first stage of the project is designed
for two years and provides for the publication on the Internet of 1200-1500
web pages illuminating all sides of a spiritual heritage of a human civilization,
and also various aspects of spiritual life of modern community.
On the web site will be shown the main world religions and spiritual currents, a history of their occurrence, biographies of the spiritual leaders, photoreviews of sacred places allowing the visitor to make virtual excursions, sacred texts, and a photoarchive and picture gallery.
After opening the web site, news from areas of religion, art, medicine, space research and the latest technological achievement will be updated weekly. The information will be stated in Russian, therefore potential users of the web site will be the people within all territories of the former Soviet Union and it is a very large audience.
As we did not manage to collect means, which are necessary for the beginning editions of the journal, I have sold the apartment, and on this money the necessary publishing equipment was purchased, the organizational questions were decided and first editions of the journal are printed.
Money received from sale of my apartment is a sole source of financing
of our publishing. In the summer of 1998 we began to issue the journal.
We have issued some numbers and have managed to achieve our journal being
distributed in 15 large cities of Ukraine (that is to 85 percent of the
territory of our country).
A week back, we received the offer of cooperation from the Ukrainian
academician Henry Shvebs. He is a professor, doctor of geographical sciences,
academician, winner of the State premium of Ukraine. In 1998 Henry Shvebs
was announced by the American institute ABI by the man of year and was
awarded with a medal, the 2000 Millennium Medal of Honor. Yesterday we
had a meeting with him and have agreed upon constant cooperation. Our magazine
only develops. We hope that we will have many similar contacts, which will
be useful to our movement.
To our deep regret, the financial crisis which has taken place in
Ukraine, has resulted in the cost of polygraphic services and papers increasing
twice. We are in a situation which is not simply bad, but very bad. That
money which has remained with us is insufficient for the regular
edition of the journal and development of other projects. If we cannot
find additional money, we simply cannot continue further activity.
Large amounts of money are not necessary for continuation of normal activity for us. About $5,000 is enough to print two editions of the journal with a circulation of 10,000 copies and to support hereinafter stable monthly publication of the journal. The development, creation and maintenance of a web site will be financed from the profit received from the sale of the journal. We cannot find additional means in Ukraine, therefore are compelled to request help from international organizations.
If the situation were not so critical, we never would disturb you. Please, consider the capability of rendering help to us even within the limits of $50 - $200. It is a small amount, but we have addressed behind the help to many organizations and we hope that we will manage to collect the necessary sum. We hope to find the people, who cannot only theoretically reason on problems of maximum matters, but also ready to render this real help to colleagues in a critical situation.
We want to make our magazine as universal as possible, examining all party of spiritual development and all spiritual movements. Therefore we hope not only for your financial support, but also on fruitful information cooperation further.
Please, help us to survive! It is necessary not only for us, but also for readers of a magazine, who have already have gotten used to it and expect the following issues. It is necessary for our future readers, who can learn from the pages of a magazine about new spiritual movements, about new prospects, about new opportunities of development of spirit. To learn about you, about your sights and beliefs.
