Quote: There are not very many truly original
ideas in the world. Everything has a model. It is just a matter of which
models you wish to adapt.
BeiYin: That seems to be the way it is.
That's how people behave. That's what they know.
I watched the writings in news groups
and mailing lists for quite some while and I am just wondering: Yes, people
are talking out of this 'model' they have adapted, it's the old way of
thinking, feeling, - reacting. How can it be different? It has always been
like this and will be like this forever. 2000 years ago there was someone
who gave a message to the people and they had adapted it the same way they
do with all what comes to them: They fit it into their boxes with other
models and then they forget about it.
Are not most people in this mailing
list 'Christian' or at least with a Christian background? What about the
adapted model of their beliefs? Don't people realize that there is such
a discrepancy between their beliefs and their acting?
What about the teachings of Jesus?
Didn't he say: 'Gain first the kingdom of heaven then everything else will
come to you without effort?' It seems that nobody is living this. Nobody?
Well, I am not a Christian, but
what Jesus was teaching is something which doesn't belong exclusively to
the Christian belief system, this is something which is a realization of
a certain state of consciousness (which is not bound to any kind of religious
system) and it is obvious, when this state is not reached through a long,
individual life long learning process, then it is just a 'model' which
can be adapted but doesn't come out of one's own self expression.
So it will be put in a box and only taken out if its needed.
I can say, that I am living this
state of being because it came out of my life. I guess that there might
be somebody interested to know about it. I will tell something now, because
I believe it can be very useful. The story starts about forty five years
ago, about the time when I started to meditate. I had several questions
about life and connected items. So I had just doubts about nearly everything
and also about the way people live and 'Making a living'. So my question
was about this and about 'money'. I got a precise answer from within: 'Don't
worry, you will have always enough money. All the money you need and so
much which is good for you. You don't need to waste any energy to get it.
Do what you like to do because you like to do it, but not because of money.
There are more essential fields to investigate about...'
So this was a clear message and
felt good and right, so from this moment on I had trust and didn't care
about money. I tell you, I never had much, but always enough for everything
I needed and wanted although my wishes never went too far. So I went on
with my normal life: Study, profession, marriage, business, etc. I started
everything without any money, even a business, what was kind of crazy from
a normal point of view. Just an example: In the beginning of the business
I almost got into some problems, because I had to buy things without having
money. We were selling things well and money came in immediately, but it
was not fast enough to pay all the bills. Moreover, I had just married
and moved in a new flat with all its expenses. So when seeing that problems
might arise, I still kept my trust and didn't worry about it. So one day
a lady came into our shop, looked around and said: 'Nice shop you have,
I see that you just started. Do you need some money? How much?' And she
gave me a check about the amount I asked for and said I could pay it back
whenever I would be able to do so.
Well this is just one example. So
the next ten years passed by and I went through many lessons on various
levels. I liked what I was doing and also I earned money, not too much
but enough for our needs. When the common financial crisis came with its
recession we nearly went bankrupt. The situation were only saved because
I had opened another shop which had an extraordinary success from the first
moment on and so I could support the other shop which we tried to sell,
not easy in this time. But the unbelievable happened, we sold the business
and I got rid of all the problems. I liked what I was doing and made quite
a lot of money with the new shop. But after a few years it started to be
boring, even so the business was good, I looked for other ways. That's
how I came to Spain. I will skip the transition time of breaking up all
in Germany, included my marriage.
I started again with zero on the
Ibiza island, were I had bought a small piece of land with a ruin on it.
Now this is twenty fife years ago. When I came I didn't know what I was
going to do. I moved into the only little room with a kind of roof with
all my animals: A horse, two dogs, two birds, two cats and some chicken.
There was no money left because of the divorce. But I had still the trust
that I would get what was needed. And so it was: There was always enough
food for all of us and for everything I wanted to do and what I needed.
Like this I build up this place 'FalconBlanco'. It was a long process,
but it was naturally and I was not forcing anything. I always did what
felt right and never I had to worry about money. Sometimes there were living
up to ten people here, we didn't care about money and never there has been
a problem about it. It is still the same. Now we are six people living
here and we have everything in abundance. It is even so that we have many
things in such quantities that we have problems to handle it. We could
feed more than twenty people and fifty dogs, but we have only fife dogs,
so we have organized a kind of distribution system...
I haven't touched any money since
several months. We don't need any money. Well of course, there is the electricity,
telephone and there is gas oil for the car to be paid. This is paid directly
from the bank account and there is coming in enough for this. Probably
there could be more if we had special needs. We plan to change our cars
for solar driven cars and install our own voltaic system not to depend
on the electrician company. But also in this we are not forcing anything.
We are investigating about the possibilities and then it will come in its
This might sound unbelievable but
it is how it works now for many years. To such an extreme, that we don't
even need to form a wish. An example: We have a new member of FalconBlanco,
he is a professional cook and of course he was not used to cook just with
the things which are there at the moment. Sometimes we have too much of
one kind and little of the other. So one day, there was no oil left which
he wanted to buy. I said: "No, it is not necessary to buy anything, if
you don't have oil then you can't use any. Wait." One week later we got
about 500 liter of best olive oil. Well, that's far too much that we can
use in several years, so we have to find out a way to use it or to give
it to other people. Also with little things: They needed shampoo to wash
their hair. I said: "Wait it will come". A few days later we got two big
boxes with the best shampoo, enough for a year or more. And so on. Hard
to believe, isn't it? But it's true. There are other happenings I will
not tell to anybody because nobody will believe them...
It has nothing to do with 'affirmation'
or whatever tricks people are practicing. I tried it long ago just once
to find out about it and I made my special experience with it. A quick
one but very instructive. I might tell you later if you want.
To come back to the beginning: When
I started to live this long story of my life and especially about my attitude
to money, I had no idea about it, there was no model to follow and I still
have no idea about it. I just know, that it needs trust and this kind of
trust comes out of being connected with something I might call 'source'.
It has also to do with awareness and being awakened. What means to be in
contact with myself in a direct way.
