Alex: People who have a steady life, kids and duties
but who also want to strive for enlightenment seem to be the sort you are
after but they have made their own lives already. Tough people who struggle
do not need your environment unless they come from somewhere oppressive
BeiYin: People who have an established,
steady life, will not be interested to come to live at FalconBlanco and
also it turned out that couples with kids form a nucleus which is not open
to be integrated into an Intentional Community, that's at least our experience.
They need another kind of security than we can offer. Having children is
a responsibility which puts parents in a kind of spiritual strait jacket,
which doesn't allow to move with much freedom, to change places, countries,
going into unknown challenging adventures. That's just not possible for
Probably a Community with various families will
work out well if it is a kind of coop, living together, having some common
interests, sharing some space, etc.
Why do you think people from China need our environment?
They are pretty well established within their system and probably they
don't struggle more than people in the golden West.
Do you think life in China can be more oppressive
than life in other parts of the world which are ruled in such a hard and
cruel way by money and the materialistic goals, causing illness and depressions?
You are probably right, there are no people ready
and interested in an environment like FalconBlanco. The fact that hardly
anybody is responding to my articles tells enough. Our place is established
in so far as we have no problems, there is enough living space, there is
abundance of food, there are material and possibilities to be creative,
there is enough space and time for individual activities and we don't need
to struggle to make money or to survive. But to keep the established frame
work going we need at least six people. We are now three, that means that
there is too much work and we can't go on much longer. So if within the
next two months there
will not come three people more to live here,
we will close the place. I still have the trust that this will not happen.
If the cosmos can allow itself to vast my twenty fife years of hard work,
than who am I to doubt this?
