Who We Are
LoveTrust was founded by a group of friends who have chosen to live and work together, and support each other in living our higher values. Some of us have been with the group for over forty years.
One by one others arrived, from many backgrounds and for a variety of reasons. Some intuited that love was the way, but didn’t know how to bring that intuition into life. Some were looking for kindred spirits, and were attracted by our heart values. Some were frustrated with the world and their past attempts at relationships, and disillusioned with the popular solutions: psychology, mainstream spirituality, and self-improvement. Together, we all set out to learn what love truly is and what it requires of the lover; what power and potentials deep commitment brings to life; and how to actually transcend our egos—how to overcome in ourselves the all-pervading self-orientation at the root of all personal and interpersonal problems.
All along, David accompanied us in deep explorations of truth, spirituality, and what it means to be human. From his experiences helping people, his understanding of the human condition grew. He shared each new insight with the group; we experimented with them and helped him refine them. Then he wrote copiously about the things we learned, amassing a rich legacy of deep understanding of humanity, its problems, and their solutions.
Since his passing, we have continued helping and guiding each other, and doing our best to carry forward the spirit and teachings he gave us, and make them available to the world.
Gifts to share
Although we know we still have plenty of headroom, we have a level of group cooperation, harmony, communication, sharing, mutual service, and love that is rare. Having faced and overcome many difficult challenges and hardships together, we have confidence that in friendship we can work through whatever arises. We know from our own experience that by tuning for heart values with each other, we can survive and overcome any crisis, handle any problem, and reach decisions that feel deeply right to all of us. And we have much to share from our discoveries along the way. We hope that the things we’ve learned will inspire and empower people to make loving, constructive adjustments in their own lives.
So, our lives have become an exploration of human-to-human cooperation and human-Divine cooperation. We consider this important pioneering work, since it is something that the human race needs now more than ever. The challenges facing this world are truly daunting. When times get more difficult, when resources are tight and the future looks bleak, fear inspires separative, survivalistic thinking. This only makes problems worse. Here, we practice love, cooperation, and reliance on Divine guidance, not only as a personal lifestyle choice, but also to strengthen and preserve precious human values and spiritual sensibilities, within ourselves and in the human family as a whole. These are essential inner resources for all of us as we face an uncertain future.
We’re serious about wanting to help the world, and we’re realistic enough to know that the only way to do that is one person at a time. Therefore, we’re always available to answer questions and correspond with anyone who wants to bring love and spiritual values into everyday life.
