The Borderland Foundation is a U.S. 501(c) (3) Not for Profit charity registered as The Borderland, INC in the state of Massachusetts, USA.
Incorporated at the end of 1993 as a Massachusetts non-profit organization in Quincy, MA, The Borderland Foundation was originally formed to be utilized in conjunction with a physical location.
This location was used as a celebrative teaching, learning, outreach center for student/teachers of A Course In Miracles in the greater Boston area. It was a place where people could gather and participate in learning and applying the principles given through Jesus’s word in A Course In Miracles in order to bring about and demonstrate the experience Jesus points to through the theoretical framework in the TEXT and the application of the lessons as instructed in the workbook of A Course In Miracles.
In 2011, the charity ceased operating as a physical entity. Subsequent guidance was received by board members to use the foundation primarily for the following purpose:
“To publish and make freely available, Jesus’s word as received and scribed by Helen Schucman through the form of publications of the Sparkly edition of A Course In Miracles and Helen’s Notes ~ Dialogues with Jesus.”
Currently, the Borderland Foundation runs solely on donations. (Except for shipping fees.) All donations are used to cover costs associated with fulfilling the purpose given. These costs currently include expenses involved in publishing, printing, distribution, setting up and maintaining a website and any accounting & filing associated with running a U.S. 501 (c) (3) Not for Profit charity.
For those of us who have received HIS word freely, we would live by the mandate given us through Jesus in A Course In Miracles,
“Protect all things you value by the act of giving them away, and you are sure that you will never lose them.”
All board members give of their time freely to make this endeavour possible and help ensure the word of Jesus is given freely through these publications wherever possible to anyone they were intended for regardless of any financial, social or geographical circumstances.
We would offer everyone past, present and future who has in any way been involved in this project, our sincerest gratitude for their willingness to collaborate in this venture.
“There is a borderland of thought which stands between this world and Heaven. It is not a place, and when you reach it is apart from time. Here is the meeting-place where thoughts are brought together; where conflicting values meet, and all illusions are laid down beside the truth, where they are judged to be untrue. This borderland is just beyond the gate of Heaven. Here is every thought made pure and wholly simple. Here is sin denied, and everything that IS received instead.
This is the borderland between the worlds, the bridge between the past and present. Here the shadow of
Forgive the past and let it go, for it IS gone. You stand no longer on the ground that lies between the worlds. You have gone on, and reached the world that lies at Heaven’s gate. There is no hindrance to the Will of God, nor any need that you repeat again a journey that was over long ago. Look gently on each other, and behold the world in which perception of your hate has been transformed into a world of love.
This is the journey’s end. We have referred to it as the real world. There IS no conflict here. No sacrifice is possible in the relinquishment of an illusion RECOGNIZED as such. Where all reality has been withdrawn from what was never true, can it be hard to give it up, and choose what MUST be true?” – A Course in Miracles Sparkly Edition T26.3
