2021 – week 51

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 have adapted the stairs to be safer for our elderly

We gave a destination to the doubles that came out of the sorting of our library

We brought in a large quantity of wood so that it could dry next to our large mass stove in the workshop

We continue to check every week the quality of the pumpkins and zucchini harvested at the end of the season. In this way, losses are greatly reduced and it gives us delicious soups

Sylvia did the big cleaning of the veranda removing all the dead leaves from the vines and kiwi trees.

The happiest man on earth: 99 year old Holocaust survivor shares his story

In this beautiful and moving talk, the self proclaimed “happiest man on earth”, Eddie Jaku shares his story of love and survival at TEDxSydney 2019. Eddie Jaku was a Jew living in Germany at the outbreak and throughout the duration of World War II. His story of survival spans 12 years, from Hitler’s rise to power in 1933 until liberation in 1945. He saw death every day throughout WWII, and because he survived, he made a vow to himself to smile every day.

We Have to Choose Between Dangerous Freedom and Peaceful Slavery | Guest: JP Sears

Matt Kibbe sits down with comedian JP Sears (@AwakenWithJP) to talk about his evolution from a spiritual satirist to a champion of freedom. As the political landscape has shifted, JP saw his liberties legitimately threatened for the first time and was surprised to find how little the rest of his community cared. The generation that grew up with participation trophies has gotten used to never having to deal with discomfort, which leads them to expect someone else to solve all their problems. What they have to realize is that if you want to live free, it’s not always going to be safe or easy, whereas if you want to feel safe, it means giving up most of your personal autonomy.

Fighting is a sign of passion

and passion is a sign of caring.

You can make the purpose of your life to save your life

or you can make the purpose of your life to live your life.


Embrace discomfort in order to archive freedom. Freedom is the safest thing we’ll ever have. It just feels dangerous. This whole peaceful slavery ‘protect yourself at all costs’ results in imprisoning yourself. That’s the most dangerous thing you could ever do. It’s just the illusion. The most dangerous thing you could ever do feels safe but the safest thing you could ever do to be free feels dangerous.

Inspiring Book

The Golden Notebook is a 1962 novel by the British writer Doris Lessing. Like her two books that followed, it enters the realm of what Margaret Drabble in The Oxford Companion to English Literature called Lessing’s “inner space fiction”; her work that explores mental and societal breakdown. The novel contains anti-war and anti-Stalinist messages, an extended analysis of communism and the Communist Party in England from the 1930s to the 1950s, and an examination of the budding Sexual revolution and women’s liberation movements.

Inspiring Texts

Are you a Victim?

(from the The Cosmic Matrix Podcast – Common Traps On The Path Of Awakening And How To Avoid Them)

When we talk about victimization, we often think of those who hold others responsible for how they feel.

Apart from it, there are six paterns we use to stay a victim:

We either

  1. hide (from our problems)

  2. deny (stuff)

  3. escape (through addictions)

  4. reject (it’s not me – I am not like that)

  5. delude (we fall into delusions from the New Cage story)

  6. disconnect

it has always been much easier (because it has always seemed much safer) to give a name to the evil without than to locate the terror within.”

– James Baldwin

Christopher Wallis Near Enemy #6:


Since spiritual teachings can be used to inflate the ego, it is entirely possible that a person does more harm to themselves and others after discovering spirituality than before.
This misunderstanding of ‘Eastern’ spiritual teachings has been around for decades, especially in the New (C)Age scene, from which it has made its way into popular culture. This meme comes in a variety of flavors: at its worst, it is nothing but the most immature kind of narcissism, while at its best it is a proper Near Enemy to the Truth.
