What’s moving you?

Welcome board Bio Farm St Blaise - owner Maurice Meyer

There once was an organic farmer who in the midst of his fields happen to have a thought bubbling up. It was a very simple but powerful one.

He was aware that so many farmers out there are doing their work with increasing concern for the wellbeing of the earth and its inhabitants, and that many had chosen -as he did- to cultivate organic, bio- and biodynamic food.
He was in contact with several of such people and exchanged with some of them in his region on a material level.

So the thought he had sounded more or less as follows :
"What if I just went out to visit some of these organic farmers worlwide to ask them what really moves them?" - that is: "what was behind their choice, why did they do it; and what would be their message for the world?".

An immaterial exchange which could be recorded on video, to then publish it into a documentary film and also on the net. Just to exchange and inspire...

He contacted a friend - cameraman... arrange for his farm to continue for a while without him, and off they went ! ...

Income Bio Farm St Blaise - owner Maurice Meyer

The farmer actually exists.
I met him recently during our family holiday in Alsace, France. His name is Maurice Meyer and he went twice to South-Africa already to start realizing this thought. Next on the agenda are Brazil, but also some European countries.

His publishing has started on an internet blog, where several short documentaries can be seen, both in English and French.

Really fresh and inspiring food - Just as an exemple I've added a sample one hereunder !

Veggie Day Celebration in GentC

one year veggie day in Gent

EVA, the 'Ethical Vegetarian Association' in Gent, Belgium, has successfully promoted the campaign to take up a vegetarian diet for at least one day a week -
on Thursday. The local authorities have been endorsing the project, making Gent one of the first, if not the first city in the world to officially endorse the one vegetarian day a week.

The project celebrates it's one year anniversary this week, and launched a video on YouTube under the slogan:

One day makes such a big difference
Een dag maakt zo'n groot verschil

Soul Story

soulstory

Last month, I've been giving a friend from Paris some help in launching her new online multimedia project on "an unknown story of humanity, the soul story ".
Getting the flash to properly flash on all DSL bandwiths, even those with moderate speed and keeping the level of quality envisaged.
A challenge indeed.

Well, have a look yourself at your own Soul Story - perhaps a challenge of a different kind, but definitely worth the trip :-)

The Titanic Syndrome

In the logic and spirit of the film documentary 'Home', which came out earlier this year, there's now also 'Le Syndrome du Titanic' - the Titanic syndrome.

Le Syndrome du Titanic

It's the newest documentary film from Nicolas Hulot, the famous French nature film maker and & Jean-Albert Lièvre - for the moment in French only I think.
Yet another call for a change of direction, based on a shift in consciousness.

A good sample of what's going on in people's minds these days - or with Reuters' quotes:

The titular syndrome is simple: Our planet is the doomed oceanliner, and we -- in the West, at least -- are all busy leading our more-or-less luxurious lives as we sail toward cataclysm. It's obviously not the first film in recent times to put forward the case for safeguarding Earth, but it promises to look at the issue from a bold perspective.

"We're at a crossroads of crises: An energy crisis, a food crisis, an economic crisis," Hulot observes. "We have to look at ourselves as we really are. Our model is not sustainable. It's this model, based on competition and accumulation, which is the source of much disorder. We have to change and everyone has to be part of that, including those in the developing world."

There are definitely things we can do right now however - for some inspirations:

Vegetarian days for world change

pumpkins

Since quite some years now the benefits of being vegetarian have become mainstream knowledge - and because of all kind of reasons more and more people worldwide have actually taken up vegetarian food in various degrees as well.

Rather new has been the linking of the idea that not eating meat actually is a significant step to reduce harmful effects on climate and the environment.
It's exactly this which inspired vegetarian organisations to promote meatless or veggie-days once a week.

In Belgian, it is the EVA vegetarian association, the biggest of its kind in the country, which started promoting a veggie day on Thursday for over a year.

The idea was actually taken up by the Municipality, and led to Ghent being the first West-European city officially promoting and sustaining its inhabitants to take up the vegetarian life style for one day a week and thus helping the planet.
support Meat for Monday Ghent's veggie day was born in May this year and actually got world wide coverage.

In the US and the UK a similar project has led to so-called 'Meatless Mondays' -
that project also got into mainstream this summer thanks to several celebrities, and especially also Paul McCartney officially endorsing Meat free Mondays -
you'll find his launching video on his website: http://www.paulmccartney.com/news.php#/1634/2009-06.

So you too can change the world ! :-)

Abraham-Hicks

Through a friend who sent me a couple of CDs from Abraham-Hicks on the Law of Attraction, I got to listen to one of the better speakers and teachers on Consciousness I've heard already.
To the point, practical spirituality brought in a freeing, humorous and inviting way.
Actually Esther Hicks, who gets her "inspirations" from "Abraham", also appeared on the first version of the famous The Secret project, so you might, as I did, remember her from there.

How exactly 'the machinery' behind this phenomenon of "mediation", "inspiration" or "channeling" (or whatever you want to call it) works, is another pair of scissors - but the message definitely stands.
The teachings are a good example of how cultural translated, clear, understandable, non-dogmatic explanations can truly be enlightening and inspiring towards the wonderful path of self-discovery and self-management.

I intend to consciously create my own reality

Yes, of course they have a site , which is commercial and thoroughly marketeered, but you can find some broadening views and answers to questions people have through some free video clips made during the multifold of conferences they have and are doing. These alone already are quite a dose perhaps :-)

So offer yourself a break and browse to some of these highlights and insights, which are build up around the "universal laws" (and especially the "law of attraction") which got summarized as follows on their site:

  1. You Are a Physical Extension of That Which is Non-physical.
  2. You Are Here in This Body Because You Chose to Be Here.
  3. The Basis of Your Life is Freedom; the Purpose of Your Life is Joy.
  4. You Are a Creator; You Create With Your Every Thought.
  5. Anything That You Can Imagine is Yours to Be or Do or Have.
  6. As You Are Choosing Your Thoughts, Your Emotions Are Guiding You.
  7. The Universe Adores You for it Knows Your Broadest Intentions.
  8. Relax into Your Natural Well-Being. All is Well. (Really It Is!)
  9. You Are a Creator of Thoughtways on Your Unique Path of Joy.
  10. Actions to Be Taken and Possessions to Be Exchanged Are
  11. You May Appropriately Depart Your Body Without Illness or Pain.
  12. You Can Not Die; You Are Everlasting Life.

Cheers !

Focus on global warming or climate changes

Two links with video materials on the topic of climate changes landed in my inbox around the same time.

This 'promotion' or 'commercial' is a beautiful illustration how you can use creativity to shift the focus of consciousness and provoke insight:

Extract Home Film - Rajasthani well

On another note, you've probably heard of or seen the 'Home' film already.
'Home', the film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, actually does the same thing. With great sense for beauty and creative composition, he mixes a good hour of stunning views on our planet, most airy, to conclude with a less airily invitation to reconsider the way we deal with our planet and set small practical steps in the good direction.

Crop Circle Time

Since many years, with peaks late July and beginning of August, the world has been witnessing this very special phenomenon of crop circles. Many appear in the UK, especially in one region, but since quite some time this mystery has expanded all over the world.

One site tracking this phenomenon year after year is the Crop Circle Connector. This year alone some very interesting formations have seen the light. They're often linked to deep symbolism, astronomy and especially the factor 'TIME', not to say 'Mayan Time' calculations.

Beyond the meaning, the authors, the art, the reasons why media and science seem to prefer to ignore the phenomenon, people testify how the circles actually DO something with them and have an effect on their consciousness.

Perhaps let the images speak for themselves and click through to have a look at some interpretations and see how it works onto your consciousness levels :-)

Are you amazed?

This is a question I love asking myself.
One of the biggest wonders to me seems our capacity to be amazed - at each moment actually there are occasions presenting themselves to us to practice this extra-ordinary state of mind.
Or should I say: ordinary state of mind?
Because isn’t this one of our original innate characteristics which we have lost so that we now classify it as extra-ordinary?

Just some thoughts which came up and which I can share through this wonderful medium of the internet, as I got one of these famous pps mails with a link to the work of a very young Belgian author, Kris Verburgh, writing about ‘Amazement’ - indeed truly amazing what the force of youth can do.
His work is in Dutch though, just as most of his blog about the wonder of science and philosophy, but the translation of Amazement is truly beautiful : ver-wondering - i.e. seeing the wonder in everything.

Maharishi Yogi

Today I read the news of Maharishi Yogi’s passing away yesterday.
Doesn’t ring a bell to most people. But when you say : he was the Beatles’ guru teaching them meditation at the time, most people go like ‘ah...’.
I’ve never been a disciple of his teachings, but I am a meditator - a person integrating meditation in his daily life activities.
Maharishi Yogi
30 years ago it started - it was still a time where you were considered ‘weird’ if you told you were interested in meditation.  But that’s perhaps still a bit the case today, it depends - but times have changed on this matter for sure.
Maharishi definitely has contributed to that in the West.  But that’s not the point I want to make here.

No just a hearty thanks, as I remember so clearly that one of the very first books opening my mind on the topic of meditation was by the hand of a Dutch doctor and practitioner Drs. N.M. Wijngaards, ‘Wat is Transcendente Meditatie’? (What’s Transcendental Meditation ?).  The book describes the benefits of meditation, what it is, some techniques, but also how meditation actually contributes in world transformation. A daring concept developed by Maharishi.
And although my path took other directions, this concept has always kept on resonating within… so yes his passing away touched me and so just felt like putting the cover up here.
As a silent remembrance, honoring what greatness of a mind can achieve.

Clear Thinking - Self respect

One of the secrets and magical ingredients of life consists in the fact that when you’re opening up for exploration of the truths ‘beyond’ matter - beyond the physical -, you automatically get into contact with resources and people pointing you - in subtle or sometimes very obvious ways - which road to take.
I’ve been fortunate to meet and work with one of the most inspiring lecturers and authors, dedicating his life exactly to this ‘science of the truths beyond’ and the clarification of its ‘laws’ and ‘variables’ in a very concise, comprehensible and adapted way.  His name is Mike George, based in the UK but traveling the world.
If two of his sites Relax7.com and Spiritualintelligenceunit.com offer already all kind of interesting roadmaps, his books even more.  He organises Awareness Retreats, and he also has a weekly ezine entitled ‘Clear Thinking - Weekly Reflections on Living with Love, Light and Power’, in which he ‘dares’ to speak out on topics which are actually close to everyone’s ‘inner’ being, but often wrapped up in all kinds of ‘stuff’.

I’m just copy/pasting the latest edition of ‘Clear Thinking’ here - there are more on his website - if you like it, just with a subscription reference to ‘Clarity of Thinking’ in the subject. Happy inspiration!

Synchronicity

We all have metaphysical experiences in one way or another : déjà-vu, sudden insights, clearvoyance, an inner voice speaking, sudden unexpected help, ... the list goes on.
Often they might be very subtle to notice. Sometimes they might be very striking and life transforming.
They are 3eye openers towards the logics and laws governing the world beyond matter.

A long time ago I’ve found and published this story from Deepak Chopra, a famous philiosopher, lecturer, writer and consciousness researcher.  He’s one of the many dedicating fully to the exploration of the metaphysical, having realised many of it’s principles.
I’m reposting his ‘particular’ story here, and as ‘Synchronicity’ wants, he just posted a video on his website of his lecture at the UN headquarters yesterday, so you might be interested in that too, after reading this.

The School of Tomorrow

Tomorrow will be a new age. With refined technology, ecological balance and a higher sense of value.
The school of tomorrow prepares for that.

Think about it as a family. A family where one can learn to discover the power of visualisation. A laboratory where the potential of one’s creativity can be discovered. A place to be. Fine-tuned and well conceived playing is the main methodology to develop and polish the intellect into diamond.

The school of tomorrow offers insight in the broader link between the aims we envisage and what we encounter. It harmonizes science and meta-science into a new reality. It channels pioneering work into valuable alternatives.

The school of tomorrow needs pioneers and youngsters to stand up.

Time

In this time of constant change, two great currents form a constancy. One is a destructive current. And if you look at a more subtle level you’ll discern the other one as creative power.

By now, anyone must be realizing that we are ahead of immense global changes. Above all negative and apocalyptic approaches, and theories of total destruction, global change at the beginning of this new millennium invokes an intense preparation for a new society based on value and renewed harmony of men with planet earth - mother Gaia.
Some call this a new age, but beyond therapy, alternative approaches, sects, cults and inner transformation, we are writing ‘history’. History repeats - itself. And thus is our Future.

Cyclic time and cyclic history comprehension help us see where we are going ... by looking to the Past we see the Future and understand what to do in the Now.

Royalty

You understand everyone deserves utmost respect.
So you give respect.

Your attitude is elevated.
Because you feel nobility is the most appropriate way to give what is each and every-one’s basic right.

Your natural way of having integrated
the understanding that consciousness is what truly matters, automatically makes you being respected.

Most of the time.

And when that doesn’t happen, you keep on enjoying
the taste of the simplicity of royalty.

Nothing New

The question: “free choice or everything fixed?” is not new.
However, new might be to realize that both are equally valid.

Departing from a correct understanding of the law of action and reaction, the ‘law of karma’, we come to comprehend all events as actions, re-actions and interactions. Each action leads to a re-action, thus triggering off a cyclic movement, whereby re-action introduces another action/re-action cycle, creating yet another cycle of action/re-action etc etc ...
Ultimately this forms an immense web or ‘wheel’ of happenings, all linked up with sense. This concept of a ‘world drama cycle’ was not only known by old Indian traditions, but also by pre-Mayan civilisations.

Considered from outside this ‘drama’ or ‘big wheel’, there is no hazard; every possible outcome or result, has been triggered off, is thus already determined and fixed. It’s like looking at a film, repeating itself again and again in loop mode ...
Considered from within this ‘drama’ or ‘big wheel’, we are all actors in front of innumerable choices at each and every second. Each and every moment, we determine our actions (and re-actions...) on the basis of our education, motivations, inner dispositions, environment etc. Our choices create our reality and determine the quality of our being. Looking from this side, we are all unique beings, playing an unique role and having opportunity to act.

We can transform each second to be a co-operative one in the creation of new values and systems for a future golden aged society.

Awareness

awareness and ignorence

Awareness

In the middle-point of two axis, ‘consciousness - matter’ and ‘technology - human resources’, I am able to line up my potential and activity with my mission and capable to transform ‘knowledge’ into ‘awareness’.

Ignorance

Out of my center, centrifugal forces are at work along these two axis ‘consciousness - matter’ and ‘technology - human resources’. Lining up with my mission and realizing the self become labour and hard to reach; awareness becomes hidden behind the clouds of ignorance.

Centrifugal forces

When I consider…

  • I am a man or a woman...
  • God has created matter ...
  • I exist only once...
  • our technology is the only criteria for measuring progress...
  • I am the victim of what happens to me...
  • it just happened by accident...
  • I can’t do anything about changing the world...
  • I am white, German or a Sindhi...
  • Allah, Jahweh, Shiva, God, .... are separate beings...
  • Paradise, Atlantis, Bahist or Golden Age is a fairy tale...

Centripetal forces

When I consider ...

  • I am incorporeal...
  • matter is eternal and transforms constantly...
  • I am eternal ...
  • our change of consciousness and values are signs of real progress...
  • I am the creator of my reality and life situation...
  • nothing happens by accident...
  • I can change the world by changing in myself...
  • I am beyond name, cult, colour or status...
  • Allah, Jahweh, Shiva, God .... are One and the same...
  • Paradise, Atlantis, Bahist or Golden Age is real but different for everyone ...

God and the Internet

The internet : a global network of computers (some call them nodes) linked to one another. A network made possible by several (well 7 apparently) layers of different communication protocols, from machine-level to the highest software-level.

The close observer will have discerned our brain to also be a network of synapses linked through a seemingly chaotic labyrinth of nerves.
The utmost realisation actually concerns reality itself.
Because reality also is a network of seemingly chaotic happenings. The ‘clairvoyant’ will discern a cycle of actions, reactions and interactions on several levels at the same time.
At the material level - at a relational level and even at the psychological.  The most subtle level, however, is the thought level.

Today’s internet is part of a much wider internet which some call a ‘divine plan’.
You could also call it a ‘drama’ or a ‘play’.
In silence, you can go beyond the physical layers and discern the higher layers, witness how everything has been programmed and how we are programming at the same time.
See the internet in the internet.

And then, beyond the layers of sectarianism, religion or science - ponder on another question:
What’s the role of God in all this?

The soul - El Alma - L’âme - De Ziel

‘Know yourself’ was one of the famous phrases written at the entry of the Apollo Sanctuary in Delphi. It is symbolic for the search for one’s identity, which seems to have existed since recorded history. Perhaps the ‘inner insight’ was more esteemed in ancient times, but it is today we need it more than ever.

Let’s put it this way: would it really matter if we come to realize ourselves?

The answer is: yes. It would matter because we are no matter.

Beyond the visible and the tangible, beyond matter exists a world we all know to be very real: our world of thoughts. And thoughts do not obey physical laws; they follow metaphysical logics.

Look at yourself in the mirror. Look in the middle of your forehead. Look beyond the surface of your skin and forehead. And feel. Feel the point where your thoughts are being generated. It is a point of energy. It is different from matter. And it is YOU.

Self-realisation means realizing that I am ‘atma’, soul.
At this stage of time, it is a most important point - if not the most - that matters.

Money

Money is matter. And counts. Perhaps too much in the wrong sense, but that’s another matter.
Since ancient times money provided a noble way to return for a given service. Today nobility seems to have disappeared and the means has become the aim.

Money is also energy. That means that money follows the principle of action and reaction. What you will finally get out of your interaction with money depends on your intention. Being rich is not a question of matter only.

A service you deliver has a value. A service you use has a value. And what matters is honest transaction.
It makes your character shine.
Instantly.

Remembrance

‘Be focused on me with your mind’.

This mantra or ‘seed thought’ was the essence of Krishna’s teachings addressed to the Pandavas, during the time of their great struggle, the ‘Mahabharata’.
Although Pandavas and Kouravas were considered brothers, they could not avoid war ; the 5 Pandavas choose to be guided by god Krishna, the Kouravas choose violent, secret and very powerful weapons.  The mantra of ‘Manmanabav’ provided the Pandavas the ultimate and transcending power.

Being focused is a very good practice to face every days’ challenges.  The question ‘how’ finds its answer in the mantra of the 3 dots: by holding the awareness of 3 simple but most challenging insights, 3 points of reference, which we forgot and just need to remember:

  • I am a point of consciousness - ‘be a dot’ and see ‘the dot’ in others.
  • Each moment of time is a point and contributes to the huge wheel of action and interaction. ‘Putting the dot’ implies approaching each moment as a unique ‘momentum’, born from the past and linked to the future, but completely separated at the same time - each moment forms a magic ‘now’.
  • The Supreme is a dot of light - ‘fusion power’ generates from ‘pointed towards’ the Source of light and open potentials of great transformation.

Whilest remembering the 3 dots, the Mahabharata’s promise of Remembrance is realised.
And you become your highest self.

Vision

There is a necessity for a creative balance between rational and intuitive sciences
and the need for practical day-to-day management tools.
Real solving means stepping ‘beyond’…
Beyond the already-known, technology, marketing & business, the internet,
prejudices & habits, fear & shortsighted vision
are ways to integrate a new art of living.
