In these times it is not easy to decide where your donation should go. The needs in the world is massive and so is the requests for donation's from great work being done in different areas around the world. I wish I had the financial possibility to say yes to every request for donation and support many of the great initiativs out there. But I dont have that financial possibility. And I have had to decide for my self where my money is best spent and where they, in the long run, makes the biggest impact for as many as possible. And there is a couple of central reasons to why The River Ganga Foundation did become that place for me to donate too. Reasons that are very much linked to me personally. The River Ganga Foundations main work is to spread a method related to mental health called The Just One Look Method. That method destroyed for me a kind of general mental misery that I wasn't aware of that I had until it was gone. And I saw that that mental misery had been the cause for much of my life´s suffering. A suffering that I presumed was a natural part of being alive as a human being. I eventually also come to see that this general mental misery was the main cause for much of other peoples suffering and craziness too. The process of "mental recovery" finally resulted in the insight that the suffering in the world is actually nothing but the suffering in the minds of many. My conclusion is therefore that The Just One Look Method supported by The River Ganga Foundation goes to the root of the human problem and heals it for good. My donation therefore goes to support that no new suffering is created, rather than trying to fix everything that our collective craziness has created. And I see it as a privilege to be able to be helpful in this way. To see the true nature of human suffering and also get the chance to do something about it that actually works. Niklas L. Hanson

John and Carla Sherman and the River Ganga Foundation provide an important public service by aiding the development of peace in each individual soul and thereby increasing peace in the world at large. On the Just One Look website they offer teachings through online events, essays, videos, audios, and books. Much of the work is free of charge. John also teaches at live events and his talks can be found on You Tube. I have found his teachings unique and very helpful, as have so many others. This organization truly merits support.
It was through John and Carla's work that I was able, finally, to find the key to a door I'd been banging on for a lifetime. Their clear and direct proposition is easy to digest, and makes all the difference.
I will always be grateful for what John and Carla offer, and for their tireless striving to bring this simple and powerful message to the world. so that as many people as possible may watch fear and suffering drop away from their lives.
John and Carla Sherman suggest that life may be presently lived in a "context" of fear. They say this "context" is obviated in a simple act of "looking at me". This friendly recommendation for me earns my gratitude with lifelong financial support for their continued efforts.
Since watching John's videos and reading the basic philosophy behind his work my life has changed dramatically. What on the surface may seem inconsequential, I found that doing the suggested inner work opened up a way for me to become more myself - if that makes any sense. I love this work. It is so basic. So logical. And I recommend it to everyone.
thanks John and your team.
John and Carla operate from the heart with a genuine goal to help mankind. The simple act of looking helps people to decide where to focus their attention; thus clearing their mind from the usual clutter of modern times. Thanks for your hard work and caring. xo Love you, Nancy
Great pure, simple, from the heart, help and advice for the world! Thanks John and Carla!
I once read that the root cause of all human suffering, misery, aggression, hatred and self-betrayal is a false belief about what I am. The only solution for this problem is the truth. This was an early statement in the young days of Just One Look. The message has been refined and sharpened over the years to focus on the solution. This invitation to look needs to be made available to everyone. If you are reading this, then there is looking, it's very possible that what's looking is what you are looking for, but you need to look for yourself.
IN THIS WORLD, WHERE FEAR AND ANXIETY SEEM TO BE ACTIVE AT EVERY LEVEL - FROM THE RELATIONSHIP TO ONESELF, AS WELL AS TO THE WORLD, JOHN AND CARLA HAVE WORKED TIRELESSLY, OFTEN AT THE EDGE OF GOING BROKE (REALLY,) TO BRING THEIR SIMPLE BUT PROFOUND MESSAGE TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
PERSONALLY, AFTER SEARCHING FOR PEACE AND HAPPINESS FOR MANY DECADES, THEY SHOWED ME A DOOR TO FINDING THE PEACE AND HAPPINESS I ALREADY AM. THE SLOW CHANGE FROM SEEKING TO FINDING, AND THE GRATITUDE FOR FINDING THIS "DOOR" CANNOT BE EXPRESSED IN WORDS.
IF ANY WORK DESERVES SUPPORT - THIS IS IT!!!!
Wonderful work ! I much appreciate your efforts and my understanding of the whole process of meditation got deepened.
While the method provided by Carla and John does not only sound simple, but it also turns out to be very easy to understand and put into practise, it is powerful and profound.
In most "modern" spiritual practices we find emphasis on so-called self-inquiry.
But many people are confused on "how to do it". Here is the method provided by the RiverGanga Foundation one of the most powerful tools to be found. Easy to understand and easy to "be done", one is instantly put in the place of becoming aware of one's self.
Of course, the mind dismisses it in the same split-second, because there is nothing there. To be precise, there is no-thing there, which is simply not graspable by the mind.
Whether done only once or more often, coming into direct contact with one's self does have an impact. When and how it then leads to liberation seems to be highly individual, but that is due to the body-mind having to adopt slowly to the new frequency of being.
