You are definitely attracting the wrong people
to FalconBlanco if even a simple
condition such as
not smoking cannot be met.
We do not attract the wrong people, the wrong people are attracted even
though we make it very clear what the intention of FalconBlanco is and
also make clear the conditions.
But the attraction
from certain aspects seem to be so strong that people don't see the other
conditions they don't want to see (the same as they do every where and
in their daily life!) They read what I wrote and then are using it
to give a positive picture of themselves so that we accept them and of
course lying about their addictions.
Where do these people come from? How do they
get to hear about you? In my case, I was deliberately looking for a place
where a more contemplative life could be lived in a healthier environment.
Hopefully surrounded by people who like myself, were interested in life's
ultimate purpose. That of expanding consciousness by going beyond the limitation's
of the mind.
Most people find FB by searching the Internet, the same as you. As I said
before: They see what they want to see and then pretend that they are interested
in the same as
you are describing
as your goal. For example: Since many years I know that when someone writes
that he/she is interested in 'self knowledge' than this means in reality
that this person is looking for 'self confirmation' by finding similar
concepts to strengthen and reinforce ones own established world view and
self image. In this 'spiritual' people are the worst and their high pitched
sophisticated concepts give them not only a frame in which they find security,
to be able to survive, but also a perfect intellectual defense. These people
are talking a lot about love and harmony and of course looking for a place
and other people to find it. But then when they don't get what they urgently
need to confirm their concept, then they get angry and some times even
react with violence. For sure the 'healthier environment' is also an attraction,
but when people see that this is connected with hard work, then they react
with arguments and complains not to engage themselves...
The SRE is very important for this. These
people knew that meditation was a
condition. Why are
they not doing it? It is not difficult.
Yes, it is a condition to come and stay here. Why they are not doing it?
Because they are sabotaging themselves. They don't want to give up their
precious personality. They don't want to loosen up their established rigid
structure, not even their constant tension and this will happen when they
do the SRE. They might have practiced SRE and then were more relaxed and
with this something new opened up, but this is frightening because they
want to hold on the old they are so used, so they don't continue to practice.
Or they do it in a way that it doesn't cause any change, but don't ask
me to check their practice. I'm wondering why people don't ask me anything,
knowing that I have the knowledge to give them advice so that their practice
can be more effective. Nothing, I have to ask them, even if I have told
them that they need to do this step if they want to know something more.
Are there other reasons for them leaving?
Are there other conditions perhaps that
they were not aware
They are mostly leaving because they don't get what they need: Self
confirmation. There are even people who are provoking in a strong way
to get this and if they can't get it, then there are even people, who provoke
with the intention to be kicked out, repeating an old pattern and when
I don't respond in the way they want (unconsciously) then they leave.
Why are they fighting with you? What is it
you want from them that they resist so
I am not fighting at all, I'm not arguing, but it might happen that I point
out their provoking behavior and also explain why I am not responding and
what probably the reason is for their provocation. But people don't want
to listen. They don't want to know about it and then they are leaving disappointed
and giving me or conditions here the fault. What I want from people coming
to FalconBlanco, is that they are interested to free and clear up themselves,
being aware of their reactions and why and where these are coming from.
That these are not provoked by the outside,
but by themselves and their unconscious background, because of their past
and the influences they had received. I want that people use the given
space and the opportunity to encounter conditions, to free themselves.
Meditation is essential for this. I can give information that can provide
the understanding, but there are very few people who are ready for it and
I will not spend my energy any more offering something to people they don't
want. The space is given and they could make their own experiences, they
could talk with me, asking what ever question, but very few ae capable
to use it.
I ask because I have accepted your invitation
to visit, but I do not want to walk
into a war zone of
arguments between different beliefs. I have been fighting all my life
and the last thing
I want are more fights as they serve no purpose of any worth.
I have told all people here to leave and most left already, the rest will
leave within the next two months and I have updated my Web site and have
make clear that I will not accept any visitors any more.
I am looking for peace.
As long as you are looking for peace at the outside you will be disappointed,
- moving around in this world. The only way is to find peace within yourself,
- then whatever you will encounter at the outside will not disturb your
inner peace. The basic condition to find this peace can be built easy and
effective by meditation or the SRE and because of this it is so important.
I don't mind debating in a civil manner various
beliefs or concepts, in fact I
enjoy exploring into
the vagaries of philosophy or religion. As long as it is kept at a
light hearted level
and nobody trying to convert anybody else to their way of thinking.
I agree, but most people who talk about their beliefs are not 'light hearted'
because they are identified
with their beliefs and defend these with all means. Talking
with them is difficult
and mostly useless, because they don't want to listen, are
defensive and use
the talk only to find confirmation in it by being strong in their
position and if possible
convincing the other. I'm not interested in this and pointing
out the reason of
their attitude only creates extreme reactions as they feel that they
To work together for a common goal and for
the good of all. Is this not love in action?
Yes indeed, it is, although of course it depends from where these 'goals'
are coming and why these are 'good for all'. If these goals and values
are part of the given mindset from our society, then one should have a
critical look, before one follows these...
Why is it so difficult to live a sane and
Because humanity is still in a primitive state of evolution. Humans have
just started to be conscious about themselves, but at this stage they are
just beginning to be aware of their thinking and feeling, but only when
these show up as reactions and as humans are identified with their reactions
and these give them the feeling of existence, they do
every thing to produce
this feeling by repeating situations. Looking for occasions to be
able to react and
if they don't find situations that serve them, then they are creating these,
mostly by provoking others. Humans are strong in the stage of having developed
a conceptual thinking. Concepts give them the feeling of existence and
so they fight for their beliefs, concepts, self image and world view, to
make these stronger, - so they can feel stronger and be happy for a moment,
but then wanting more and more. This is not a sane life. That's why I express
myself about 'healing oneself' explaining that healing means to be in a
growing process, with ones *whole being* and not just eliminating disturbing
symptoms. In so far disease is a challenge and can be used in a creative
way. But it looks like I'm calling into empty space, as hardly any body
listens. There is no response... But this is a challenge for me, as it
is my learning and growing process. I am not depending in my actions from
the response of others. I express myself and do what seems right for me
and makes sense. Yes, I'm responsible to express myself in a manner that
it might cause the minimum of resistance, but I do as good as I can. Knowing
that whatever doesn't fit into peoples established mindset, will provoke
defense reactions, so I can keep cool and let people do with my expression
what they are capable for. Maybe my writings can work as a 'seed': In its
time it will sprout and grow...
More than three decades went by and it wasn't possible to find enough people
to form a 'team' to built up and hold a creative and smooth energy. Some
times when it happened for a short period, then people left for various
reasons and then because of a lack of people even the necessary daily work
was causing difficulties and resistance. I am getting tired and when it
will not be possible that people show up who are ready and willing to engage
themselves, then I will need to close the place. I have several projects
that are important and I can't realize these, because I am sucked into
too much work when maintaining this place...
