A human being is a miraculous being and certainly not a machine, not a device that can be programmed. Man has certain wonderful processes that you might only detect if you pay attention to them. Last year, during the winter, we experienced an epidemic that was eventually declared a pandemic, and of course we remember that after the carnival holidays, when people had been on holiday, the first infection was detected here in the Netherlands, and I don't know how things went for you, I hear from many people that they were really scared of this virus infection at first, even the people who are more sceptical afterwards often say that they were often scared in the beginning. I don't remember that. Right from the start I had the feeling that, yes, there was a double agenda or something like that going on, but you can't prove it, you can only tolerate that things are going as they are and that you are living in two worlds: an inner world where you notice that something is being experienced other than what appears as news in the outer world. This then reached a sort of high or low point in the course of March. At first people said, oh, it will all be over in May. But in March, a number of countries deemed it necessary to close the borders and announce lockdowns, and the Netherlands remained fairly moderate in this respect, but it was of course clear that the people had to realise that a disaster was taking place. And what I actually want to say, because we all know this of course, we have experienced it all too intensely, what I want to say is that it is so remarkable that one year after the lockdown and the border closures took place and it therefore became a real problem, I have in any case noticed that a kind of loss of interest occurs. You get the feeling: we've seen it all before. And if I were to make another video, I wouldn't really know what to add any more, because everything has now been said and everything that is happening in the meantime, which is in fact a lot, no longer holds any interest. And that is why I thought: this seems to be a spiritual-natural process, that when something so intense comes into your life, you get used to it after about a year. And there are of course many different ways you can go about this. Because being used to something can mean that you resign yourself to it and I believe that we should not do that. Being used to something can also mean that you seek a different relationship to not resigning yourself to it, and I have already said this in connection with the results of the elections in the Netherlands in March that we as humans have a tremendous resilience, a resilience that is also given a foundation in the Christian experience at Easter. And when you look outside into nature, you also see how there, more or less objectively, it is shown that also nature outside of man has this resilience. And I believe that it is time for us to transform our passivity, our suffering, into positivity. I feel very clearly that I say to myself: I have had enough! And you also notice in the world that it seems as if everyone has had enough, although it is said that many people still support the government policy, but I don't really mean that, you can support it, but that doesn't mean that you haven't had enough. So on all sorts of fronts, you see that people are really fed up with it, that they have given up and that those who grumble after, move along with the fear mongering, seem more like theatre than reality.
That's how it is for me. And that gives me a very strong impulse to want to turn things around and to cheer along with nature, as I said last time. We have been blessed with a beautiful spring this year and it seems as if the plants are doing their best to compensate for what is being taken away from us in other areas. And that is not only in the plant world, but there are so many opportunities in life to look not at the negative, but at the positive. And you notice that when you get stuck in the negative, it makes you heavy, while we as humans really have another mission, another task than to drag ourselves along in misery. Now it is so that this also entails that you, that I, have had enough of politics. I always really didn't feel like it, but for a year - it had come to the fore because of the corona issue. In the Netherlands, there have been elections, followed by a tremendous scene with regard to a new formation of the government, strange things have come up, things have calmed down a bit and just now that things have calmed down a bit, a new storm is brewing in the Netherlands. It seems that the government cabinet in a certain affair - which has been going on for some time and which has also led to the fall of that cabinet - have in any case really kept a double agenda and that, as it happens, minutes exist of which the contents have been leaked. So this double agenda is now coming to light.
And I believe that this leads to reflection. First of all, you could say that if a double agenda is possible there, then it is also possible in other areas. And then, of course, it is quite possible that the whole policy surrounding Corona is presented differently than it actually is, let's put it that way. Where would you get your trust that in government affairs everything goes as it should? And why should you have any confidence at all, because heads of government are people, and they are exactly the same sort of people as all the others, not at all elitist or anything like that, they have not taken any moral exams, they have taken other exams, and they have somehow rolled uphill against the law of gravity, so you have to realise that you are dealing with very ordinary people, and ordinary people try to hide all sorts of things and present themselves differently than they are, and that is what you are constantly dealing with. And of course I would like to call on you not to do that, at least not within yourself. That you find in yourself the positivity to stick to the truth because that is positivity. Negativity is untruth and lie. Positivity is truth. But when you then look at this actually third riot within a couple of months within the government of the Netherlands - I then look back in my life and I have been a member of a board a couple of times, they were not important boards, but they were really existing boards and I have been at a loss every time, inwardly, I stood out because of my absolute silence, I couldn't manage to take part, and that had to do with the fact that I was constantly aware that certain things were being staged there and then carried out, while the outside world naturally took the scene to be real life, when in fact it was a staged production. I found that so incredibly difficult that I left the boards and at one point thanked them for the next offers, but of course it goes without saying that in other circles, in other types of boards, in a country's government, that the same thing happens there. So of course we can also try to say to ourselves: How could you ever have thought that this would not be the case in a cabinet? The Parliament is extremely perplexed and of course also angry because they have the task to control the government, but if they don't get the information they need for that, then of course they cannot. And that anger is of course justified. But on the other hand you could say: yes it is of course also somewhat silly to assume that the highest board, the government, would function differently than all the other boards. They are the same people who sit on other boards, they are the same people who go to school, to university, who have jobs, who have children, who have families, and everywhere it is clear that the human being, on the one hand, is a wonderful, beautiful, true and good creature, but that human being, that same human being, is constantly falling down. And why should this not be the case in the higher circles?
So as far as I'm concerned, these events in the Netherlands are a very clear illustration of the fact that we have to be aware that in all governance, and I believe that this really is the case in all governance, including governance in legal life, untruthfulness plays a fairly large role. And if we were to stop believing that everything is fair and square there, we would have more to show for the so-called conspiracy theories being justified, of course. Not always according to their content, but the fact that they exist is, of course, certainly justified because you see that now, in the Netherlands, in government circles, it has been proven that an agenda was pursued there which was unknown to the members of parliament and that those members of parliament are therefore in fact confronted with a small conspiracy - which, by the way, has had gigantic consequences, that little conspiracy. So we can, after all, carry this on to other programmes that are being rolled out about us without any problems.
And I think we should be on our qui vive, yesterday or the day before, it was in the paper that we can expect dangerous mosquito outbreaks to come to the Netherlands. The same Mrs Koopmans who is also working on the viruses has also been working on this, and that will be a whole new item. Another item is the threat of a cyber attack. It is known that on 9 July, soon, the World Economic Forum is organising an event in which companies can participate in order to train themselves in security against such a possible attack. Now you might say, yes, we have seen such an event before, namely in 2019, when a pandemic was simulated and a few months later we had that pandemic. So it is a bit unpleasant that something like that is being practised now, but we are reassured to read that this has been going on for years, that there are annual courses organised by this forum in which you can practise to protect yourself against such a cyber attack. But anyway, they do warn us about it and you could say, that could be the next misery that comes our way. Another misery is the prospect that the living force, the radiation power of the sun must be curtailed, because the sun provides us with the climate problem and therefore, to protect our earth, we must do something about the sun's radiation. These are tests that are going to be done in the summer and so there is a lot of misery waiting for us.
And now you will say: where is your positivity? I will say this: the positivity is that the earth with humankind is not an apparatus, it is not a machine and neither is the sun. The sun is the source of our life force. The fact that we now see nature rising to life in such an incredibly beautiful way is a direct effect of the sun, everyone knows that. It is not only a physical phenomenon, but also a biological and life phenomenon. And so the earth is not a thing that carries itself in the universe in a strange way so that you should almost be afraid that it will fall down one day, why is it hanging there? The earth is not a thing, it is not an apparatus, it is a mighty living being and we as humans have a part in that earth, we have been given a piece of it, our body, and we live in a part of that beautiful living majestic functioning earth. One could go on for hours about this because what are we actually afraid of? Of course, with life on earth comes death, that is a fact of fate, we can more or less surrender to that, that it will be on your way at some point, that point. But until that time we can put our trust in that life-giving earth, which the sun has resurrected over and over again, in which we can be happy, where we can see the most beautiful things, develop and unfold the most fantastic innate qualities, no lockdown can make that impossible for us. Except when we give up and weep - and I at least have stopped doing that after one year.Crisis habituation: getting used to it? by Mieke Mosmuller
