2021 – week 31

Upside down = instead of announcing what we plan to do
(& most often find out we do not need to do), we relate what we really did

Building communities of trust is fundamental
to healing our collective wound.
At Plukrijp, we offer spaces of transparency and solidarity.
The community allows people to encounter each other
in truth and so develop trust.
We do the garden for YOU
Plukrijp functions on your frequent visits & harvests. Take along for friends & neighbours, this way we recreate real networks between us all, breaking down the illusory restrictions that now still separate many of us from our fellow man = UBUNTU.
The updated list of vegetables & fruit that can be harvested this week is available on our website under the heading “Current Harvest” :

This week @ Plukrijp
We did:

We harvested MANY courgettes, gerkins, cucumbers and beans. Luckily a few people from the restaurant ‘De Beek’ came and filled their car with our delicious vegetables.


We harvested (and cleaned) many potatoes, scratched where they were and planted cabbages.

We harvested the ripe grapes and made juice from them


We scratched the short high beds, the short low beds and the left and right side at Hei.


We seeded corn salad in the food forest and in the open tunnels


We weeded the open tunnels

Mowed the grass


We were allowed to help Jos – our 94 year old friend – in making new doors for the garage. Beautiful to see so many years of experience and presence in action.

Willem de Ridder: Fluxus – het Leven een Spel (Dutch)

Mijn uitgangspunt is dat het niet mag ontaarden in WERK. Als ik helemaal geïnspireerd opga in het spelen, speelt iedereen mee. We zijn EEN. Zodra het moeite kost, voelt iedereen de moeite. Brrr.’

It is the business of the very few

to be independent;

it is a privilege of the strong.

And whoever attempts it …

proves that he is probably not only strong,

but also daring beyond measure.

Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche

Promoter of avant-garde theatre, Fluxus agent, founder of an art mail order house, publisher of taboo-breaking magazines, producer of controversial Radio Art programmes, and much more, Willem de Ridder has led a storied life. It seems that the moment he became successful with whatever he was doing, he would abandon it entirely to embark on some other project. In producing this biography, Harry Ruhé and Jeannette Dekeukeleire went back to the source – De Ridder’s old house in his hometown – and sifted through dozens of folders, clippings, dusty boxes, and attic treasures. The result is a book full of pictures, where texts should be interpreted as extensive captions.

Inspiring CD


No blessing is superior to being without misfortunes. I once spent the whole day pondering, but it was not as good as a moment’s worth of learning.

I once stood on my toes to look far away, but it was not as good as the broad view from a high place. If you climb to a high place and wave, you have not lengthened your arms, but you can be seen from further away. If you shout from up- wind, you have not made your voice stronger, but you can be heard more clearly. One who makes use of a chariot and horses has not thereby improved his feet, but he can now go a thousand li.

One who makes use of a boat and oars has not thereby become able to swim, but he can now cross rivers and streams.

The gentleman is exceptional not by birth, but rather by being good at making use of things


3 steps to wisdom from


The novice learns to be honest with others in terms of who, what, when, and where.


The advanced soul learns to be honest with self and discovers that “perspective” rules, yet changes swiftly.


The Master, however, studies honesty in terms of motivation, where heretofore the lies have really piled up!

Inspiring Poetry

Then an old man, a keeper of an inn, said,

Speak to us of Eating and Drinking.

And he said:

Would that you could live on the fragrance of the earth,

and like an air plant be sustained by the light.

But since you must kill to eat, and rob the newly born of its mother’s milk to quench your thirst, let it then be an act of worship.

And let your board stand an altar on which the pure and the innocent of forest and plain are sacrificed for that which is purer and still more innocent in man.

When you kill a beast say to him in your heart,

By the same power that slays you, I too am slain; and I too shall be consumed.

For the law that delivered you into my hand shall deliver me into a mightier hand.

Your blood and my blood is naught but the sap that feeds the tree of heaven.”

And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart,

Your seeds shall live in my body,

And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,

And your fragrance shall be my breath,

And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons.”

And in the autumn, when you gather the grapes of your vineyards for the winepress, say in your heart,

I too am a vineyard, and my fruit shall be gathered for the winepress,

And like new wine I shall be kept in eternal vessels.”

And in winter, when you draw the wine, let there be in your heart a song for each cup;

And let there be in the song a remembrance for the autumn days, and for the vineyard, and for the winepress.

– Khalil Gibran

Inspiring Text

A message of inspiration
written by Christina von Dreien

Their biggest mistake..

They knew that the human collective reached a very high vibration.

But they were not aware of the number of awake souls.

They noticed the evaluation error.

And they got scared.

Now they don’t hide anymore.

Now they are in a hurry to officially launch a “new world order”.

Now their attacks are direct and frontal.

And the attacks will increase.

They will try by all means to prevent people from waking up.

They will try by all means to ensure that the “waking” ones cannot communicate so as not to wake the others.

They will try by all means that the awakened are seen as insane or delinquents.

Whatever they do, it doesn’t matter.

The quantum leap has already happened.

It’s unstoppable.

Humanity already considers plants and animals to be souls that ensoul them.

Humanity already respects Mother Earth.

Humanity already understands that there is no separation between souls.

The souls they now embody are already coming as teachers.

No more experimenting.

They embody only to learn to love.

We may be witnessing a total change or not.

The transition can take a week or 300 years.

But it is unstoppable.

Whatever happens during the transition, remember one thing, it was you who offered yourself.

To stay here and now.

Whatever happens.

Whatever you see.

You are the engines of change.

Only one thing is asked of you.

But one.

Don’t be “food”.

It’s all you have to do.

One simple thing.

Don’t be food.

Man is one of the most powerful generators in existence.

We are whirlpools.

Depending on the polarity you tune in, you create high or low frequencies.

These dark entities feed on low frequencies, we have fed them for millennia.

The awakening of humanity has tilted the collective vortex to high frequencies.

That’s why they attack with such fierceness.

They starve.

Connect with your soul.

And watch yourself.

If your soul resonates with these words, don’t give a second of your existence to be “food”.

Eliminate the low passions of your life.

Hate, resentment, envy, fear, vices, junk food, lies, ambition.

Selfishness, sadness, mistrust.

All this generates dense energy.

Food for the dark ones.

Be aware of your emotions.


And if on any occasion you find yourself in one of these low vibrations, change your energy right away.

Put on some music that makes you happy.

Sing. Dance. Breath.

Light incense.

Hug your cats.

Hug a friend.

Hug your dog.

Hug your mother.

Embrace your pets.

Go for a walk in nature.



Do what it takes.

But it changes that energy right away.

Because you serve as food.

Always be informed.

And all that is asked of you is not to lead the dark hordes.

Feed your soul with everything that helps you get up.

As you become accustomed to living in the frequency of love, your reality will effortlessly change according to your will.

You are a powerful being.

You are unstoppable.

Don’t be afraid of anything.

Free your mind from the “Matrix”.

Focus your attention on what you want.

But above all have fun, be happy, laugh, sing, dance.


We live by loving everything.

And you are part of it.

Along with the stars and the sun.

And to all the galaxies of the universe.

You are love.
