Kenya – Fall out of Paradise

Paradijs 1She looks at me: ‘Yasmin, not everyone on this spot is happy with you. Your heart is completely open. Your energy is all over the place and beyond. That works as a mirror and not everybody is willing to look inside. But comfort yourself. That same openness is also protecting you. You could never have been here for such a long time without that protection …

Adam and Eve

And God was angry and thought: If they do not voluntarily leave paradise, then I will give them a hand. And he created a perfect situation for Adam and Eve to fell out of the perfect state of Oneness into the world of duality. After all, He created the Universe to evolve. And there is no evolution possible beyond the world of opposites…

And so the journey of mankind started here on earth. A journey full of challenges, colored by prosperity and happiness, by times of wars and peace, by health, diseases, pain and suffering. This journey will continue for each of us until that what apparently seems two has merged together into ONE and the world of opposites in our perception ceases.

I sit on the beach and watch the clouds. Apparently there is no movement but the picture is constantly changing. The clouds surrender themselves to the flow of that particular moment…

Clouds

‘Primitive’ man moved like the way of the clouds. They followed the flow of the moment and when the food gets scarce, they followed their instincts till they reached another place where there was enough food. They did not care for tomorrow. The idea of time did not exist. There was only the eternal Here and Now.

Mankind began to evaluate and wanted to exert control over life. And that what started out as a truly fruitful supplement, became more and more of a struggle to get life under control so that we could manage it according to OUR will and no longer to HIS…

And we really believed that we were successful in that. But see what happens. Everything we thought we had under control started to lose its control and we are falling back into a state of life that calls for more and more trust and surrender. Decline or progress?

Creators

We are born as creators. We are created as the image of the Father and the Mother. We are divine beings and we have the ability to flow in a continuous stream called LOVE. However, that requires totally surrender to our inner goddess. And that we do not want. We believe that we can take over the total control of the Universe without being connected with the Source of ALL creations. And that is the reason that things went wrong. The whole world started to turn out of balance and that what was fully prepared to work for our wellbeing -the nature- seemingly turned to work against us…

But HAS it really gone that wrong or is it just the process of evolution which we are going through on this earth till the day we wake up to realize that we can only bow our heads in surrender and are willing to say: ‘Not my will but Yours will be done… ‘

And maybe we just needed this whole way to detach ourselves from all what we think we are and where we get our identity from, but what we essentially NOT are…

Pilgrims

We are all pilgrims on our path, constantly on the move. We came to the earth as a blank unwritten page, completely open to fill in ourselves. And see what happened. We were filled in, piece by piece. Depending on culture, religion, tribe, sexual revolution or whatever and we began to believe: we were THAT.

And most of us try to fit flawlessly into the calibrated system because that seems to be the only way to be able to feel loved and to belong to the clan…

Unfortunately, it is fatal to the stream that is called LIFE. The Universe is not interested in a flock of sheep that follows the code created by the masses. The Universe is honoring that ONE rebel who has the courage to step out of the system and follow the lonely but only road that leads to Wholeness: the way of the HEART.

And every pioneer runs against resistance. Nobody is happy with those who do not want to adapt to that what the mass seems to indicate as confidence. That one drop shakes the whole pond and triggers unrest. So adjust, whatever it cost OR ignore OR cleanup…

Man who walks with an OPEN HEART will be well aware of what he/she activates. It is much more than a storm in a teacup.

Culture

In African culture is being harshly dealt with anyone who does not wish to run in the system. On a small scale, people are bewitched, poisoned or on another way put out of the game. At government level, anyone who is willing to testify against the president will be killed.

In western society we do this apparently different. But in essence it is still the same.

Anyway, life is just one big RISK. You cannot get out the way of that by taking out any insurance or by avoiding to travel to problem areas. In all respect you can only grow and getting rich in spiritual regard by experiencing life in all its depths and its heights. Although it not always feels like that if you are in the middle of the process…

To follow your heart and to walk your TALK is the way of the really brave ones – the individual…

Herd

The mass basks in that what is known. The mass is following the herd. And when it goes wrong in his life, he will wait until he is going to be saved. And see, the whole support team enters into action. In the Netherlands everyone who ends up in prison, is heavily addicted or otherwise in trouble, should change. How we declare that at the end of the day only a few people will make a new start? In no time the mass is back in detention, back into the addiction, back onto their old habit. There is NOTHING more difficult than to break with stubborn old habits. Maybe it would help if the rescuer should stop wanting to rescue. Only when the victim (by the way there are no victims) feels deep inside that HE is ready to change, the time is right to support him in HIS process…

I am well aware that the help syndrome is equally as sickly as to leave it to its fate syndrome. Giving without asking or without an equally energy exchange makes people dependent and unequal. There cannot be any movement if the path does not start out of mutual respect and equality.

Mandela

Here in Africa we westerner have taught people to sit on their ass and to wait until we have arranged things to OUR insights. When Nelson Mandela the poor gave an RTP house – free housing – they were not grateful and certainly not ready to build their own base. The crowd wanted more: every day a five-star meal without giving anything in return.

Here on the coast of Kenya, where it has been for a certain group on a material base a good time, people continue waiting for God to change their situation, for the government to finally do something for the coast, but mostly they wait for the white tourist to come back and rescue them from their miserable situation.

Moreover that situation is not THAT miserable, because without all these obstacles the African – as no other tribe – has the ability to work cooperatively and to share together what they have.

Compassion

We white ones come to this country and our heart overflows with compassion. We build schools, orphanages, wonderful projects western style and we will find out that they work perfectly when WE are at the spot. Once we retreat, in no time most of those projects are on their ass. The money is not used to pay the teachers etc., but to fill some pockets. That is the way the system is built up from top till bottom: Kick against the corruption – but does it also yourself. Even if it seems small and harmless it is still the same…

In the west it seems apparently different. But we cheat the tax system and make indecent use of subsidies on a large scale. And each of us knows how to invent an excuse to talk about this property…

Cycle

Even if the form is NOT important, often here in Kenya I had the feeling that I did not do what I wanted to do. But there was nothing to want. I just did what was needed to be done at that moment. I tried not to make people depended on me and sometimes that succeeded and sometimes not. For men are tenacious and indolent.
Before I was thrown out of paradise I already decided to finish this cycle of being merely a money machine and to open myself to a new one… *

And that what seems somehow painful is nothing else but a loving wink of the Universe. It is done. Do not make yourself depended from a seemingly beautiful place. Go with the flow and be curious what you will meet on your pathway. Do not hold on anything, and certainly let yourself not being wrapped into a system you cannot longer respect and honor anymore…

A real pilgrim NEVER has a permanent residence. A real pilgrim is always there where he has to be at THAT particular time and on that particular moment. And there is where his HOME is…

Life on earth is nothing more and nothing less as a journey through the world of apparently contradictions back into ONEness. I know that better than anyone else. I was and I am ready to walk my talk. There is no space for attachments. There is no room to be addicted and to hold on to somebody or to something. There is PLENTY of room to enjoy All that Is at this particular moment…

Love is ALL that IS…
