The land on which we live is becoming increasingly overgrown. 4000 square metres of self-sufficient garden reclaimed by nature. In the middle of the city! Encircled by new housing developments that have encroached on the surrounding meadows and fields over the years. Only this island remained. 4000 square metres, whose owner defied the investors, refused their offers. Old lime trees stand here. Cherry trees, apple trees, plum trees, pear trees. Quinces, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, jostaberries, ancient thighs of strong ivy entwine, it is dark in some places from the hazel trees that shoot up 10 – 15m like fountains and unite in the sky. Dark cathedrals. You can see kiwis up there. From a shrub that has emancipated itself from its trellis for decades and swung its tendrils up to the loftiest heights. Over the old horse stable, up into the hazels.
The owner was bedridden for many years. Now she has died. The six children can’t agree whether to sell to the investor or let someone use it for themselves. Either way, our days are numbered here. It could be tomorrow, but it could also be two years from now.
We have therefore decided this autumn to tame the wilderness gently. Otherwise it would leave no room for us in the new year. Despite the wonderful gifts we are allowed to receive from it all year round. „To tame gently“ means to educate. It means letting it grow with rules and limits. Limiting the unbridled survival instinct. Means: Teaching the unity. Feeling the community. Making sacrifices that are of no use to oneself. We have decided to cut the paths free again. Many field bindweed, brambles and vines – nature’s imperialists – have to give way. And we will make one or two small beds usable for ourselves on which we will sow hardy field lettuce. That’s it. That is our limitation. The rest is common growth. Is swinging together. Living together in love. All is upbringing. All is change of consciousness towards the centre. Limitation of the ego. Perception of oneness. The consciousness that understands this, that recognises this without thinking about it, for which this is as natural as breathing, that has a healing effect on this sore world. In all circles, in all vibrations, on all levels. From the finest to the most comprehensive.
To know when one is lovingly embracing and consistently acting educating mother-father consciousness and when one is humbly learning childlike consciousness with the need for limitation and revelation, that is the secret in dealing with the world in a healing way. Is the secret of vibrating together in the sense.
