2022 – week 14

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 repaired the beginning of the beds at the closed tunnels.

We repaired some leaks at the plastic house near the Toilet.

We cleaned all the windows at the workshop, allowing the sun to shine through clean glass is a very simple and important Permaculture tip, it will make the living/working space more bright, warm and pleasent to be in. The choice to be dependent on gas and nuclear power when we have nature offering us all that we need is a very stubburn decision.

We scratched, and planted potatos on both sides of open tunnel 3.

We scratched everywhere at the Hei, and at the closed tunnels 1, 2 and 3.

We seeded basil, butternut pumpkins and tomatos in tne Plukpots, they are now waiting the northern cold wind to stop inside the trailer at the plastic house.

We added more wood chips on top of hops at the right side of open tunnel 3.

We seeded flat-leaf parsley and clover at the food forest and added good compost on top of it.

Summer of Soul (2021)


A ‘gloriously entertaining’ new film rescues a historic, long-hidden Harlem concert from obscurity. And its resonance today is striking.

In 1969 – the same summer as Woodstock – and for six consecutive Sundays, an outdoor celebration of black music and culture took place in the New York City neighbourhood of Harlem. More than 40 hours of performances from dozens of artists were recorded, then languished in a basement for nearly 50 years.

The documentary Summer of Soul (… Or, When the Revolution Could Not be Televised) mixes those recordings with new interviews and archival footage to create a work with piercing resonance today.

Bird (1988)


Bird is a 1988 American biographical film about jazz saxophonist Charlie “Bird” Parker, directed and produced by Clint Eastwood. The film stars Forest Whitaker as Parker. He won the Best Actor Award at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama at the 46th Golden Globe Awards, while Eastwood won the award for Best Director.

Academy of Ideas – Fear Psychosis and the Cult of Safety – Why are People so Afraid?

… in the current era fearing appears to be such a volatile and directionless activity. It seems as if one threat begets another, only to be contradicted by yet another newly discovered target of fear. This does not mean that people are perpetually scared of fearful; rather, the perspective of fear works by sensitizing people to focus on potential threats ans dangers while distracting attention from the probable positive outcome of engaging with uncertainty

“Resistance is having an antagonistic relationship with life,” explains Eckhart Tolle. “Constant resistance is the most common state of consciousness. However, everything changes when you shift out of this state of negativity and denial. Peace, joy, aliveness, creativity, drama-free relationships—all of these and more await you when you live in alignment with the present moment.”

Two clear videos that will help you better understand the situation in which we find ourselves today

Mattias Desmet on Mass Formation Psychosis

This interview with Aubrey Marcus and Professor Mattias Desmet is worth listening to no matter what side of the fence you are on when it comes to COVID-19, vaccines, etc.

In it, Desmet explains that mass formation is essentially a group hypnosis (group think) that emerges in society when four conditions are met:

  1. Lack of social bond

  2. People experience life as meaningless or senseless

  3. Free floating anxiety and free floating psychological discontent

  4. Free floating frustration and aggression

Desmet explains that all four of these conditions are currently being met, putting the majority of the population in a mental state that allows them to be essentially hypnotized.

Dr. Mattias Desmet, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough discuss Mass Formation Psychosis.

TPC is with Dr. Mattias Desmet, teacher of Mass Formation Psychosis; Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine; and Dr. Peter McCullough, the most published cardio-renal physician in world history.

The Bill Gates lying machine hard at work

In the 1980s, 60+ years after the “Great Flu of 1918”, the NIH funded a research gold rush of papers to “prove” that the 1920s estimate of 20 million global deaths was wrong. Long story short: They upgraded it to 50 million – with no new data, “just because.” But that wasn’t good enough. Then a cottage industry of shills like Douglas Brinkkey decided the real number was probably 100 million – based on nothing. Guess what? The same thing is happening with CoVid. A bazillion more people died than we realized”. We catch the evil doers red handed.

‘A woman’s highest calling
is to lead a man to his soul
to unite him with the Source.
A man’s highest calling
is to protect a woman
so that she may walk the earth unharmed.”

Inspiring Text

Seeding the Birth of a New Earth

By Bernhard Gunther

The period we’re in right now is called the Time of Transition. What happens next is of critical importance because it will be the seed of the next cycle of this drama that we call Planet Earth. What happens next also depends on each one of us because you and I and many others who incarnated during this Time of Transition are the seed people that determine the outcome of this Time of Transition.

During these intensifying times of upheaval, uncertainty, and division, it is of utmost importance to re-connect with who we truly are, our guidance within so we don’t tumble under the waves of change but learn to ride the wave and help create a new world based on truth, love, and knowledge. We cannot escape the world nor spiritually bypass this process we are going through as individuals and collectively. We are being called to become the spiritual warriors we’re destined to be.

The only way out is through.

We must be mindful not to feed into the fear frequency of the matrix with all the doom & gloom future projections but remember the creative potential and power we possess as soul-embodied individuals. Ultimately, as many esoteric traditions have prophesized it, this Time of Transition presents an opportunity to connect with who we truly are: the Divine within, aligning with Divine Will to help birth a new world.

However, there are many layers of armor, programs, shadow projections, self-defeating [unconscious] beliefs, and [unconscious] trauma/wounding we hold in our bodies that separate us from the true Self and our connection to the Divine and our fullest potential. We have forgotten WHO we are and hence gave away our power and freedom to others who now take advantage of our reluctance to step into our own god-given CREATIVE power.

There IS an Awakening occurring on this planet in light of the evolution of consciousness. It’s an opportunity, yet not a guarantee and it depends on each one of us as individuals. Every one of us has a specific soul mission to carry out within these profound multi-dimensional changes.

But to engage in the evolution of consciousness, we need to make conscious efforts and work on all levels: physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and seek Truth within and without, engaging in both inner AND outer work.

As Above so Below. As Within so Without.

This is not easy Work at times. It can be a battle, and we are in a war. The war is through us and manifests externally. Yet, there is guidance all around us, and there is a Divine seed within us waiting to sprout and blossom if we sincerely commit to the path and answer the call.

If there are still people here in 200 years, they won’t be thinking the way we think, because if people go on thinking the way we think, then they’ll go on living the way we live – and if people go on living the way we live, there won’t BE any people here in 200 years.
