community allows people to encounter each other in truth and so develop trust.

Did some (many) people know in 2012 what was to happen in 2020 ?

A comic book has come to light, created in 2012, which describes in detail from A to Z how in 2020 a virus should get around the world that was developed in China, to be precise in Wuhan, so that
the entire global economy can be paralyzed and in this way all mankind can be brought under a world dictatorship.

Inspiring Book

Extract p.88

The stroke management

Claude Steiner argues that as children we are all indoctrinated by our parents with five restrictive rules about strokes (attention):
Don’t give strokes if you have them to give
Don’t ask for strokes if you need them
Don’t accept strokes that you would like to receive
Don’t decline strokes you don’t want
No strokes to yourself

These five lines form the bass of what Steiner calls the stroke management. By training the children to obey to these rules, according to Steiner, parents ensure that ‘… a situation where
there is an endless supply of stokes is changed into a situation where the supply is small and the price that parents can charge for it is high, thereby binding the children to them. ‘ It also takes away the possibility that children could be active witnesses
in the “behind closed doors” family transactions.

To live is the rarest thing in the world — most people just exist”

In, out.

Deep, slow.

Calm, ease.

Smile, release.

Autobiography by Portia Nelson


1. I walk the street – There is a deep whole in the pavement – I fall into it – I’m lost – I’m helpless – It’s not my fault – It takes an eternity for me to get out.


2. I walk the same street – There’s a deep hole in the pavement – I pretend that I do not see it – I again fall in it – I cannot believe that I am on the same spot – But it’s not my fault – It
still takes me long to get out of the hole.


3. I walk the same street – There’s a deep hole in the pavement – I see that it is there – But I still fall into it – It’s a habit – My eyes are open – I know where I am – It’s my fault – I immediately
get out of it.


4. I walk the same street – There’s a deep hole in the pavement – I walk around it.


5. I take another road.

My mind is in a Prison from Medium

The lake stood still as the morning sun gently woke up from slumber.


The stillness of the murky lake disturbed him. He felt like the lake was poking fun at his mental state. In his anger and frustration, he began to throw stones into
the lake. The splashes began to send ripples across the lake’s surface. But he wasn’t satisfied. He continued to disturb the lake.


A beggar passing by noticed him.


Why are you doing what you’re doing right now?”


He looked at the beggar. “Oh, I’ll tell you why. This lake is still when my mind isn’t still. I can’t allow it to stay happy and watch my misery.”


The beggar replied to him, “What is troubling you?”


He began to answer the beggar’s question, “I can’t seem to get anything right in my life. All my troubles are because of money. I wake up every day and want to eat
I have to pay for the meal. I want to travel somewhere I have to pay for transport. I want to live in a house I have to pay rent or a mortgage. I want to go to the toilet I have to pay in some way. I want to be allowed to breathe, the government leeches out
taxes. To do anything in this filthy world, money is always involved. My mind is in a prison and the bars are made out of money.”


The beggar remained silent and continued to listen to him, “No person in this world is truly free. Our thoughts are always controlled by money and wealth in some way.
I’m sick and tired of being in this thought prison.”


The beggar who had been silent until now spoke to him, “In the forest beside the lake, there are some people who were once like you. You don’t have to pay anything
to join us.”


He then looked at the beggar with a condescending smirk, “Huh! You’re a hermit and you want me to become one? Just get lost with that garbage. Why would I want to join
your bunch of lowly beggars? You have to beg for food, wear tattered clothes, and live in run-down shacks in the forest. Your lives are meaningless, Why would I join filthy scum like you?”


The beggar walked away while he continued to throw stones into the lake.
