• Spring 2017, Durga, Gardens and other news...

    Egazete New Moon,

    Durga, Gardens and other news .... may 2017


     

    Beautiful Coincidences ? Synchronicity ?

     

    We are five years after the fire ;

    This year, thanks to Durga and the Lotus pond, the farm reaches the same level she had before the fire;

    Even better, of course; my little house, hot water, washing machine and so many big improvements!

     

    What is important for me is this :

    Even if some strong force helped me to found the “first” farm and showed me the way, I built it with my money, my will, my ego, my mind...

    Then the farm burned;

    Now it is here again, entirely rebuilt thanks to Your Money, Your Donations, Your Support, ok also my hands and head too, and most of all Our Hearts together and a big Surrender...

    This for me looks like magical... or divine.... and maybe it’s the same :)

     

    Spring 2017, Durga, Gardens and other news...

     

     

    I also have the tangible sensation that a big « karma » was hidden behind all this ; such a strong energy pushed me to rebuild the farm, find money, energy, support... Now it’s done;

    An era is over; a new one is starting;

     

    Interestingly, whereas i have been extremely attached to my little farm these last years, I felt this tie suddenly breaking or at least loosening, becoming highly softer...

    Time for Sharing had come;

    And all of a sudden, I come across the new paradigms of « Shared Governance » or « Self management », « Reinventing organizations », new ideas for managing groups which look like tailored for the farm, as if the farm was precisely awaiting them to take off again !... and probably me too !

     

    In the same flow, a small team is slowly taking shape who might manage some farm’s activities according to this « Shared Governance » philosophy and techniques... I will continue to talk about it in the next egazete because it is so fascinating and full of hope for the future! It really shows how fast our level of consciousness evolves... And it is just the beginning...

     

    So the « lady group » will firstly learn and imbibe these new philosophy and techniques for “being together”, and slowly maybe organize some programs...

    Like this the “Human Venture” of the farm continues...

     

    Something is quite surprising about the new emerging paradigm:  In these new management techniques one point is always in the center, one point which is maybe one of our essential needs : Respect;

    Respect in which we may find Trust, Consideration, Acceptation..

    It seems that a subtil alchemy operates when we experience Respect, Consideration, which allows our creativity to flow freely without being bound by the barriers of fear...

    Those who have some knowledge about aviation or heard about the “Crew Resource Management” know that this allows to manage a team by creating powerful synergy and showing Respect to all individuals;

    Here, the “Shared Governance” follows the same path but go even further, giving to each and every group member, same power of decision, same responsibility...

    I wonder now....

    What if we would apply Shared Governance in an aircraft ?

    Why not ?

    We must bear in mind that people in Shared Governance will not decide of everything in a messy way, taking decisions without knowing anything; No ! There is a deep preparation in advance to establish “who decides what and how”; and most of all, each member is deeply involved hence competent and motivated into the journey... be it that of a farm or of an airplane...

    So... why not an airplane !?

    And why not a country ?

    I leave it to you ! We may dream....

    I have the intimate conviction that we go towards such a world ... maybe in a not too far future.... when the mind and ego barriers will fall....

    Who knows?

    Consciousness’ evolution continues its way ...

    Other news...

    Which show that, well, definitely ego and mind barriers have not fallen down yet, I must come back to earth !....

    We just learned that our demande for a bank loan has been Refused;  as a direct consequence, it prevents us  from applying for fundings to TkDk* (the project on which we work since almost 2 years, construction of the guest house and buying of big energy solar system);

    *As a reminder, it is so in our lovely country of Turkey: to get the funding's money, we have first to finance the construction with another source (for us the bank loan), then show invoices and then we are eventually granted with the fundings... That's how they prevent misuse of the money given...

    So, new situation, yet no need to panic ! It was quite predictable and shows that the "Reinventing Organization" of Frederic Laloux has not yet come to effect in Turkey ! How could a bank lend 100.000 € to a company which produces no incomes since five years !?... Ok It was a bit of an utopian dream... !

    Actually we have Durga, and the minimum installations to host again people thus we shall resume activities in autumn... and see what happens!

    Additionnaly we still have the chance to participate to "Terre de Femmes" prize with Yves Rocher's foundation... Inshallah we may win the 10.000 € prize?? Let's cross fingers and knock on wood !! A Lot can be done with 10.000 € !!
