My future neighbours

At this moment I am creating our village, a village where experiencing joy and love will be at number 1. A village of 250 hectares where 150 families will live, families who will develop a self-sufficient life on their family domain of approximate one and a half hectare.
In that creation I have now entered a phase where I carefully reach out to people who could become my first neighbors.
That I reach out to people has only been the case for two weeks.
Before that I had other things where I focused on: the past 3 months was that finding my way in a country where our village could be born: sweet Romania, the country of birth of my wife.

In the past few days I have announced on facebook that I would like to meet people who are interested in living in our village.
And to my pleasant surprise, there were immediately people who contacted me: through e-mail, facebook, by telephone, videocalls and also someone I could really meet in times of Covid19.

Since I had those contacts, especially those where I could speak with people, I have had a very nice feeling: an exciting feeling. I now suddenly realize that I am making contact with people who are potentially my neighbors, and that until the end of my life !!
It is not like a neighbor that I will see every now and then, or a friend who is dear to me and whom I visit now and then.
These are people with whom I will create a village together… a village of love and joy, which will be a very intense and rich event for the rest of my life.
After my wife and my family, these people will be the most dear to me.
I will care for them from the bottom of my heart, I will give myself totally to them.
I will love them with everything I have in me.
I feel this love for my soul family in my heart for the first time.

I will care for them from the bottom of my heart, I will give myself totally to them. I will love them with everything I have in me.

In the conversations I have had in recent days with these people, I also feel that we experience this contact from both sides as very intense.
We feel from both sides that we are talking about a commitment that is very deep.
Of course, neither of us knows at this point whether we will actually become each other’s neighbors, whether we will become some kind of soul family. But I can sense in these conversations that we both see that this is a real possibility.
It releases very intense and very beautiful feelings in me: I now realize more than ever that I have been waiting for my new family all my life …
I am ready to say “yes” to our first neighbors!

Our village will be a joint creation

Paulo Coelho wrote in his masterpiece “The Alchemist” that every human being has a legend and a mission to find and live that legend.
That seems easy, and normally it is.
But in these times, humans have created a world where people are led away from their legend.
For example, we no longer have the time or the energy to think about such matters because we are busy every minute of the day: with our job, our family, our children, our household, our house, etc.
And when there is still time left, we are so stressed and exhausted that we need time to unwind.

Another word for legend is a dream: every human being has a dream that he passionately desires.
A legend or a dream do not “happen”, it is something we create ourselves, with our passion.
Another person cannot create our dreams, that is our own work.
God cannot create our dreams either.
When we are in touch with our real dream, there is always “something” or “someone” who will help us.
Paulo Coelho calls this energy the Kosmos, I call it “My Father”.
When we are in touch with our real dream, we co-create with this energy.

Right now I am creating my dream: to found a village where we can live a life where only one thing counts: to experience a feeling of love and happiness at every minute of the day.
There is something special about my dream: I can only create my dream with people who want to create our village together with me.
I can start creating our village but I can never create my dream on my own.
I need people who want to create with me.
Our village will be a joint creation, a legend that we will live together.
And that will be beautiful …

Until now, creating our village was a matter in which only I was involved in, but that is about to change, and I am looking forward to it !!
The moment our first villagers will soon be living as my neighbors, we will work together on our creation every day. Together!
It will start with a small group of people, and we will end with a group of approximate four hundred people.
And with this growing group, we will create together every day.
Every day we will create together in dialogue.
It will be super beautiful!
