Hi fellows,

The man who came back is different from the man who went away.
Where am I now ?
The world seems new to me, old things gone and new things to discover, to find my way in.
What began as a wrinkle became a tsunami, which changed, not everything but very, very much.
I’m seeing now that I’ve to teach to balance this new energy.
Not only for my physical health, because of my handicap, but also for good communication with the outside world.

What seems to be “ giving a piece of my mind “ , which was the starting of the wrinkle, transformed into an opening of the mind and losing my past, my ego.
That losing was liberation.
Physically back 16 years, but mentally feeling without age, with an energy as great as never before.

The whole exercise on this forum was ‘Mind-blowing’ and now, back on calmer waters, having no idée what to do.
So much potentiality, for all those reasons above, I must let the seeds in rest and seeing what it brings.
So no responses for, I don’t not yet know how long,( maybe forever) keeping low profile.

One response in this hole event, from a guy in K.center at France,
changed also from interpretation.

“ there is only one serious respons:
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah”.

He even don’t know of my responses on this forum, so I begin to see why so much Buddha’s have a smiling Face.

Love Wim.

Hi fellows,

The rapidness by which the back fall is recovered surprised me.
This headache of mine is back on the level by which I can live with it, as long as I keep the physical boundaries in sight. (Not too long on the screen or book and by driving my car in time taking resting time )

One of the things which changed is that this ‘dominee effect’ is changed in domino effect. (dominee is Dutch for viccor).
So not my past, with all the rules is not longer the prime seat, but the present using the past.

Also my sleep is changed. Two or three times a night I’m awake, for I don’t know how long, only to be very, very clear. The only thing what happens is feeling this twinkling in my brain cells as if ‘ I ’ am looking to a river streaming by.

So in counting the hours I sleep less, but in the morning I feel better than I can remember I ever did.

One other thing is, that there is an idée taking form of making a book (pocket) out of this all, if possible with a hole in it. You know why.

I’ll let the seeds in rest and wait until it’s time to come in action on this.
Possible with some help from you over there.

Love you, Wim.

dear readers,

This morning I woke up with this idea.

Playing with logic and the information of Krishnamurti and Bohm in a nutshell.

The Percentage sign ‘ % ‘ is two zero’s disunited by a slash.
If taken the slash away there’s nothing, zero, zero, because twice zero is still zero.
We’re also talking about the ratio of large to small or the other way around.
So if we see the slash as permanent, than you get two pieces.
If we see it as distinguished instead of separating,
there’s the connection between the large and the small
and united making the WHOLE, which is all there is.

Enjoy.

Hello fellows,

This night a lot went by,
leading to an ocean of questions, from which three I want to share with you.

There’s this saying: One lunatic can ask more than ten wise man are able to answer.
So asking myself, being born as me – alone –
What am I ?
One lunatic or one of the wise man ?

The other question is:

Is the pain of the parents,
who lost their child through the hands of fundamentalists
different from the pain of the parents,
who lost their child becoming the hands of fundamentalists
or different from the pain of the parents
who lost their child before or near after giving birth ?

the last question is:
Are we really giving Peace a Change or is this only Smalltalk ?

Truth will unfold itself to those who enquire their own actions.

Hi Wim,

I was also haunted by same questions yesterday with the difference of consideration as rapists instead of fundamentalists. The context is the BBC documentary on India's daughter.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxkMzBqjgw8

I saw that both the set of parents are in pain and suffering, it seems pain and suffering are inevitable but the presence of self pity and regret makes them qualitatively different, and at the same time, the absence of self-pity and regret as expressed by the rapists without any sense of pain and suffering makes it look even worse.

The question is that of responsibility, not FOR something, but the very feeling of responsibility if it exists is what makes the pain and suffering qualitatively the same for all.

Dear Readers,

Yesterday, sitting on a bench in the park of Brugge, looking at a showering swan under the fountain of the pond, this words appeared on paper.

I am born to be me
You are born to be you
We are born to be us

But what are we doing ?

Are we working together
To make the world
a better place to be ?

Answering to Natarajan S:
Isn't also proof of we are all one, but lacking something of everything makes a mess out of it.

After family reunion yesterday and talking over our last trip and showing the foto’s:

Dawn Under

Changing our plan
First “ Chinese Garden “
instead of
the “ Tower eye “
never so close
to disaster.

The ocean of flowers
to honor the victims
we could understand
But not
the queue for a photo
of the Lindt café
by disaster tourists

“ Martin’s place “
Will never be the same.

luck and misfortune never so close.

Dear Readers,

This morning it was clear to make a end to this story of mine.
The title will be: " Surfing W@ve ".

I've written the introduction and will end with two Haiku,
which belongs to the first one I wrote to Mina.

I am not afraid
for shadow in front of me
Light is backing me.

Light is helping me
but the “I” sits in the way
put shadow on it.

Author's Introduction:

This is an incomplete written report what has happened for 1 1/2 ½ month in my live.
In complete because not everything what happened in my head dealt as reminder,
on scraps of paper is written. also, because for privacy reasons some names intentionally
not have been mentioned because no permission is and will be asked for.

Some of you will feel personally addressed themselves,
but THAT has been not my intention.
In the context of self-examination this came out for myself and it seems that others, so possibly you there also could benefit from.
Think of it as an invitation and certainly not as a lecture lesson,
in the latter case it would overshoot the target,
provided that there is/was a target there at all.

“ Wat Wim Kan kan Kan Kan alleen ” (Dutch)
The space I came to earth bares several names:
‘Holland’ and ‘The Netherlands’ and within ‘North and South Holland’ and also ‘Friesland’, with their own language, even here and there there’re differences in interpretation and experiences.
Now living in Belgium, the Flanders there are a lot of different dialects.

I’ don’t why or how even in two countries
(The Netherlands and Belgium and in the last one only in one region “Flanders”) under one name they’re speaking this language, named ‘Dutch’.
It’s the source of many miscommunication though, even between two people of good will.
We know, I’m from the Netherlands and my wife is from Belgium and we’re happy people still, believe it or not.

The sentence in English translation: “ What Wim Can Can Can Can only “.
A lot of our Dutch members and or peoples will recognize this sentence
( I borrowed it from people of our past ( long dead though).

I hope there’s no copyright on it, otherwise I’m in great trouble.

But it seems to fit in the WHOLE I thought I lost
while finding this ‘ (W)hole ‘ in my pocket.

Why in English? Since most of what came to me, came in het English, mixed with lots of Dutch and also because many twists word and phonetics let express themselves better in English then in Dutch.

Moreover, for many of us common language area English is not a problem.

‘ I ‘ go.

Losing its dominance
The ego tries to get it back
in the most devious ways
like a chameleon
in the clots of
pride, guilt, civilization etc. etc.
slippery as an eel
in a bucket of snot

The ego is like a black hole
It consumes all the attention
It’s a form of self-abuse
Until seeing real life
Needing the attention to survive

There’s no ego there,
no thinking, thought, google
or whatever, just living,
being alert, staying alive.

Truth will unfold itself to those who enquire their own actions.
