“Evolution is just a name we give to the illusion of motion, and wisdom is just a mirage. Despite all the talk of journeys and progress and growth, no one has ever moved an inch. You appear in the amusement park and you play the games and ride the rides and when it’s over you go out the way you came in. There was never any chance of making a difference because you were as much an illusion as the rest of it.” Jed McKenna – Dreamstate: A Conspiracy Theory

Van Birgitte Westerveld ontvingen wij onderstaand bericht.
I would like to report the following website hosted by your firm Transip B.V. server 22.214.171.124 for abusive content and slandering of my name across the internet. It’s a site maintained by Sjef Romijn : mcha.nl.
Content from a private FB discussion I’ve had between ‘friends only’ has been forwarded to Mr. Romijn in May 2018 and he has tagged several versions of my name (and those of others) and now all the offense content and images show up in search engines across the internet.
My reputations is being severely damaged and I would like all taken down. I have sent Mr. Romijn a private message this morning with the request to remove all content concerning me, but unfortunately he also promptly publicized this as well! I am pasting all links here. Your assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated, not only for me, but for all others involved as my children other friends and family, not to mention prospective employers or clients, who are being affected by this as well for having me publicly exposed in such an offensive manner!
I am also including 2 of my own screen shots of the images that appear under my name..
Thank you for your help in this unfortunate matter,
Met toestemming heb ik dit bericht aan je doorgestuurd, onze juridische afdeling zal dit verzoek gaan onderzoeken.
Met vriendelijke groet,
Me: Ik heb ervaringen met deze dame gehad (waarin zij mij behoorlijk door het slijk haalt), daar heb ik over geblogged, zie de links die zij zelf aan jullie gegeven heeft. Ik hoor het wel als er vragen zijn. Bedankt.
Transip: Beste Sjef,
Dat kan ik me goed voorstellen. Op geen enkele wijze willen wij ons hierin mengen als dat voorkomen kan worden. De beklaagde kwam verhaal halen en wij hebben gedaan wat wij in deze situaties doen en kunnen doen.
Ik hoop dat je de dialoog aan gaat met haar en er op die manier uit komt. Nog een fijne zaterdag toegewenst.
Met vriendelijke groet,
Weirdos in the mail:
“Sjef, zou je die HDS \’soap opera\’ content aub kunnen verwijderen. Je hebt mijn naam en die van alle anderen getagged en nu komt alles op in searchengines. Wij schijnen elkaar niet te liggen.. bygones be bygones…maar ik heb ook kinderen die hier niet bij ingetrokken hoeven te worden.”
Google translate: “Sjef, could you please remove that HDS soap opera content. You have tagged my name and that of all others and now everything shows up in searchengines. We do not seem to sit well with each other .. bygones be bygones … but I also have children who do not have to be dragged into it.”
The Rave New Year Forecast is Fundamentally a Transit Weather Forecast
The transits of the Rave New Year are frequency patterns, interpreted by the mind, that will arise over and over throughout the year. It is easy to become caught up in the planetary transits because they influence all of humanity – we are in a material program which promotes a homogenized way of thinking and acting.
Learning about the planetary transits help us to become aware of what is not us, of what is not our individual life. When we learn about the Rave Year ahead, it is a finger pointing us towards what we can become aware of, without becoming identified with it, or acting upon it. It becomes the basis of our wisdom about the world, and what is not us.
It can be valuable to remember that this is the transit weather passing through; however, it is a weather pattern that will come up over and over throughout the year. We do not need to identify ourselves with the weather passing through; it is simply something that is experienced through the body and observed with the mind. We don’t make up stories about how the weather is doing something to us, or that we must do something about the weather; it is simply a fact of life here on planet Earth. Just like the weather, the Rave New Year transit themes are a fact of life on planet Earth every year.
If we know it is going to be rainy, we can be prepared, and take an umbrella with us; if we know the Rave New Year forecast, we can be prepared for what the homogenized world around us will be caught up in, and therefore, what to look for in the transit weather.
What is the Program?
The Program is a term that Ra used to describe the way the planetary transits operate together. We live in a vast neutrino ocean of approximately 30 trillion neutrinos per square inch per second; and we take in their energy, which arises primarily from the core of stars. Each neutrino travels to us across the solar system; and as they pass across or through a planet, the neutrino picks up the frequency imprint of that planet.
Each planet has a specific orbit in our solar system, which is described in Human Design through the Rave Mandala wheel, from the point of view of planet Earth. As each planet moves in its orbit, it passes through each of the gates in the Rave Mandala wheel. The Sun takes 365 days to pass through all 64 gates, where Pluto takes 251.9 years to do the same.
When we look at a transit of a specific day, we are seeing a snapshot of the planet’s movement around the wheel, and the specific energies that the neutrinos are bringing to us. The combination of all these planetary aspects and their gates is called The Program.
By observing The Program for the Rave New Year, we can learn to recognize these imprinted themes in action around us, and not get caught up in acting upon them, or identifying with them. Simply stated – energy is not personal.
Each planetary body has its own unique frequency theme, which is then expressed through the imprinted neutrinos passing by, and through that planetary body.
When we are looking at the Rave New Year Transits, we are looking at the over-arching, global themes for the entire year. Their potential influence is in the way our mind is conditioned to think, with a particular direction or focus. We can also become caught up in identifying with the homogenized world, which amplifies this same conditioning.
Each planet’s frequency for the coming year, expressed through the specific gate it is transiting, brings a unique energy transmission, which can be experienced by the body, and observed by the mind.
However, each of us have our own imprint of the planets, and their gate energies, that make up our individual BodyGraph. Our very strategy, and Inner Authority, arise through the specifics of the planetary imprint of our design. When we are operating correctly, we are living a life that is built upon the specifics of our design, through each planetary aspect and their frequencies.
When the mind is running the life, it runs on The Program; it is a distorted, and homogenized way of life – acting and reacting to the transit themes and their influences. And, if The Program provides a transit in a gate that is open in our design, the mind will be very attracted to acting upon it.
By learning about The Program, and specifically the Rave New Year programming, we can learn to observe these themes in action around us. Slowly, we can become familiar with these themes, and avoid being identified with them, or initiating action based upon them.
Remember, the transits are here to be observed, and self-observation builds our wisdom, and potential for awareness in the now.

“That can actually sound quite cute. But anyway they don’t. They don’t. Vehicles don’t wake up. It’s not even in their criteria. Vehicles are vehicles. Only passengers can wake up.
To break through that, it’s not enough to say “Ok, follow your strategy, honor your inner authority.” You can’t imagine, well, I guess you can because most of you have heard it, I say this endlessly, it is my “take two aspirins and go to bed,” over and over and over again, but it’s not enough when it comes to any attempt to awaken the passenger. As I said earlier, you can follow your design and have the serendipity that your passenger sees. There isn’t anything to say that there isn’t a 2nd line somewhere that will come to that quite naturally. It’s all possible. But in terms of the vast population, in terms of the vast majority of people who will experiment with this knowledge? No. No, it’s not a given because it is a gift and not a right. How about that? It’s not a right.
There can be a number of ways. You can be Krishnamurti. That is, you can have a fabulous intellectual mind. And through the very glory of your intellectual mind you can get to a resolute place of recognizing choicelessness. Bravo, very few beings can do that. It’s impressive, but very few can. You can have satori, that incredible epiphany, magical moment, whatever you want to call it, in which suddenly seeing is there. So many of the beings that we call masters, gurus, whatever, have had these kinds of experiences where suddenly there’s this seeing and everybody says “ah”; yeah, well, ok. It’s not transferable. We’re talking about transference and we’re talking about what’s transferable. I have no right as a teacher to teach anything that isn’t transferable” – Ra Uru Hu
“It doesn’t teach us to be nice
Human Design is the rule breaker
It urges us to be ourselves in any price
All the prices our conditioned mind might think we pay
Turn out to be the biggest gifts bestowed upon us through this process
There is no bigger gift then being one’s SELF
It can’t be quantified
It can’t be compared
It can’t be defined
And there is nothing more important or worthy than it.
There is no cause
There is no enlightenment.
SELF is all there is.
And the gift of its unique expression through a body and mind.
We humans have so many ideas, in any path we walk.
Every “truth” brings endless words to feed the thought,
Which now translates its instructions into new language.
If we believe it, we fall into the pit. Illusion.
If we think it can tell us what it means to be SELF
We are mistaken.
The problem cannot recognize the solution
Thought cannot comprehend what is before and beyond thought.
Human Design reminds us what it is to be a guest here, on this plane.
A passenger consciousness in a vehicle,
Driving us safely on itself.
To be a passenger is not to look at everyone else,
And think who we are in compared to them.
It is to watch and see our SELF,
Being revealed and exposed, out of letting go into what IS.
And to allow the expression of it as it is,
Without masks, or trying to please and ease, to fit in.
Without fighting to change, to be someone or something.
It is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others.
And it takes courage. It takes courage to be who we are.
Mostly the courage of the first decision – to try.
After that, out strategy and authority take us.
I love Human Design.” – Pavaka Katzir – Living Your Design Guide – Human Design Manifestor Group
“Before I woke up to reality, I had a symbol for all my frustration: my children’s socks. Every morning they would be on the floor, and every morning I would think, “My children should pick up their socks.” It was my religion. You could say my world was accelerating out of control in my mind; there were socks everywhere. And I would be filled with rage and depression because I believed these socks didn’t belong on the floor even though, morning after morning, that’s where they were. I believed it was my children’s job to pick them up even though, morning after morning, they didn’t.
I use the image of children and socks, but you might find that for you, the same thoughts apply to the environment, politics or money. We think these things should be different than they are, and we suffer because we believe our thoughts. At 43, after 10 years of deep depression and despair, my real life began.
What I came to see was that my suffering wasn’t a result of not having control; it was a result of arguing with reality. I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered; when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.
When you question your mind for the love of truth, your life always becomes happier and kinder. Inquiry helps the suffering mind move out of its arguments with reality. It helps us move into alignment with constant change. After all, the change is happening anyway, whether we like it or not. Everything changes. But when we’re attached to our thoughts about how that change should look, we feel uncomfortable when we realize we’re not in control. Through inquiry, we enter the area where we do have control: our thinking. We question our thoughts about the ways in which the world seems to have gone crazy, for example. And we come to see that the craziness was never in the world, but in us.
When we understand our thinking, we understand the world, and we come to love it. In that, there’s peace.
Who would I be without the thought that the world needs improving? Happy where I am right now: the woman sitting on a chair in the sunlight. Pretty simple. The apparent craziness of the world, like everything else, is a gift we can use to set our minds free. Any stressful thought you have about the planet, for example, or about life and death, shows you where you’re stuck, where your energy is being exhausted as a result of not fully meeting life as it is, without conditions. You can’t free yourself by finding a so-called “enlightened” state outside your own mind. When you question what you believe, you eventually come to see you’re the enlightenment you’ve been seeking.
Until you can love what is–everything, including the apparent violence and craziness–you’re separate from the world, and you’ll see it as dangerous and frightening. I invite everyone to put these fearful thoughts on paper, question them, and set themselves free. When the mind is not at war with itself, there’s no separation in it. I’m 65 years old and unlimited. I’m no longer interested in what my children do with their socks.”
Quoted from a book by Byron Katie: A thousands names for joy
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHEN TO STOP ARGUING WITH PEOPLE AND SIMPLY LET THEM BE WRONG.
“The body doesn’t care about you. Your vehicle doesn’t care about you. Your brain doesn’t care about you, that you think you think you are. It doesn’t. It’s living out a very, very deep, programmed, mechanical process that has a beginning, a middle and an end. You just happen to be a by-product of all of that, nothing more, nothing less. Left on the outside, not even allowed to enter the body, can you imagine.
Think about it. This illusion we have about soul, think about it. There you are in the womb just this perfect mechanical flesh bag; it’s perfect, this bio-mechanism, no Personality crystal, just the Design, just the Monopole. They build these machines, they run them, they drive them, and they kill them.
Then you have that moment, that moment where the Personality is going to be called in. But it’s not called in; it’s yanked into the orbit of the vehicle. That’s all.
It’s my joke when people ask me why I wear hats. It’s to keep my Personality crystal warm. It doesn’t even get to be in the body. Then you think that who you think you are runs your show. It’s hilarious. It’s sad; actually, it’s tragic comedy. It really is. There is the Personality stuck on the outside, don’t even let it in. And it’s the form that offers you those little aspects that you call Personality activations. It’s the form that creates that potential. It’s the form principle that sets the moment for bringing you in that is going to set the moment of your birth. It’s all fixed. It’s all a game. And the Personality sits on the outside. And it thinks that it is dying, and it’s not. It was never part of it anyway.
That’s the thing to really grasp. The Personality really has nothing to do with the life; nothing at all. It’s just a seduction to be pulled into the illusion; it’s just an illusion. It’s just the limitation of the primitiveness of the brainpan that we have, that this is the way that it functions. The illusion that we have that this is our vehicle, that this is our life. But in death the joke is revealed. In death the Design doesn’t even turn around and say good-bye to the Personality. It shows it its rear and the door, and that’s it, it doesn’t care.”

…that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man’s lawful prey.
It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. – John Ruskin (1819 – 1900), writer and social philosopher
The number one reason people fail in life is because they listen to their family, friends, and neighbors.
Women tend to be more attracted to men who view females as pure and nurturing but also weak and needing extra care – an attitude that has been named benevolent sexism. That’s the conclusion of a new study published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
“We became interested in this topic, because we realized a paradox in the literature on benevolent sexism,” explained study author Pelin Gul of Iowa State University.
“Previous studies have found that men’s benevolent sexism has many detrimental consequences on women (such as undermining their competence, restricting their freedom, confining them to the kitchen), yet research had also shown that women prefer benevolent sexist men and even find these men more attractive than non-benevolent sexist men.”
“We realised that theoretical perspectives on mate preferences, especially parental investment theory, could solve this puzzle,” Gul said. “It could be that women’s attraction to benevolent sexist men is because they perceive these men as willing to invest, which could even outweigh the downsides of benevolent sexism. This explanation was entirely absent in the literature, and so that is what we wanted to add to this literature.”
Across five studies, with 782 female participants, the researchers found that women perceived a male romantic partner who held benevolent sexist attitudes as more willing to protect, provide, and commit for them, which in turn made him more attractive. Feminist women were as likely as non-feminist women to prefer benevolent sexist men over more egalitarian men.
In the study, benevolent sexist men were described as believing that women should be cherished and protected by men, and should be helped before men in emergency situations. They were also described as giving their coat to a woman in the cold and opening doors for her.
Non-benevolent sexist men, on the other hand, were described as holding more egalitarian views. They didn’t beleive that a woman should be set on pedestal by her man, nor did they offer women coats or hold open doors.
“Surrender: Your Mind Must Be An Ally
It’s very important to understand something as a Generator: Generators were given this gift of surrendering. Let me explain to you how surrender works for a Generator. A Generator comes to Human Design and they’re told that they make decisions in response. So they begin this process of making decisions in response, and they begin this process by doing the mental work first.
If you do not seduce your mind as a Generator, you will never have a real opportunity to be yourself. Your mind must become your ally. The way in which you make your mind an ally is that when you begin your Generator process, you begin by a “Question and Response Episode.”
The Mind Will Fight Your Surrender
See, Generators are here to know themselves. You’re here to know yourself so you above everybody else is here to know the power of your Not-Self because it’s your greatest enemy! In recognizing the power of that Not-Self you cannot expect your mind – who does not work for you – to work for you!
You cannot expect that you’re going to be able to teach your mind, to be able to compensate for your Not-Self.
Your Mind Is Not on Your Side
It all comes back to your own process. It comes back to you remembering every moment of every day that your mind is not on your side. It’s going to tell you whatever it tells you. It has to learn. You have to teach it. You have to fool it. You have to get it to a point that it surrenders to you being your own Authority, claiming what’s rightfully yours.
Your Sacral Center is here to claim what’s rightfully yours – your Authority. I wait for awake 59s to change the way in which we bond, so that we can bond with clarity, so that we can bond with those that are correct for us to bond with.” – Ra Uru Hu
THE DOOR TO HAPPINESS OPENS FROM THE INSIDE.
“Een draadje over een tendens in activistische en politiek actieve kringen die me zorgen baart.
1/ Activisme heeft mijns inziens als doel de wereld inclusiever te maken, gelijke kansen creëren voor iedereen. Je kunt dat op vele verschillende manieren proberen te bereiken, vanuit verschillende achtergronden. Je kunt discussiëren over strategieën.
2/ Als activist ga je verbindingen aan om dingen te bereiken. Je zoekt mensen met overlappende doelstellingen. Je neemt deel aan de politiek om doelen te bereiken, en probeert politiek te ontregelen waar nodig om de politiek zelf aan de kaak te stellen.
3/ Activisme is daarmee a dirty job. Het gaat met vallen en opstaan. Niemand is heilig. Mensen maken soms verkeerde keuzes en inschattingen. Het is net het echte leven.
4/ Steeds vaker zie ik dat het aangaan van allianties onmogelijk wordt gemaakt omdat groepjes activisten hun identiteit en morele gelijk als in beton gegoten beschouwen, en alleen nog uit zijn op het “ontmaskeren” van tegenstanders die zich vermommen als medestanders.
5/ Elkaar scherp houden is ontzettend belangrijk, maar dat is iets anders dan isolement opzoeken in een groep die als enige gemene deler een vijandbeeld heeft dat groeit als een olievlek.
6/ Daarbij is de groep zelf ook niet veilig: er heerst een voortdurende dreiging “ontmaskerd” te worden als wolf in schaapskleren.
7/ “Leden” worden zo gedwongen connecties met mensen buiten de eigen bubbel te verbreken en kritiek binnen de eigen bubbel weg te slikken. Dat is gevaarlijke groepsdruk en vergroot polarisatie.
8/ Deze groepjes proberen te verhullen dat activisme uiteindelijk in wezen een eenzame bezigheid is. Ja: activisme biedt verbindingen die herkenning, steun en slagkracht bieden, maar geen enkele alliantie is heilig. Elke groep is een menselijk construct, en daarmee feilbaar.
9/ Je dient als individu te blijven nadenken. Wat wil JIJ bereiken? Hoe wil je dat doen? Hoe sta je tegenover anderen? Wat wil je wel of niet uitdragen? Welke rol wil je activisme geven in je dagelijks bestaan?
10/ Welke podia benut je wel en niet? Die vragen staan soms haaks op de groepsvorming die veilig lijkt.
11/ Zelf vind ik de volgende dingen belangrijk. 1. Ogen op de bal houden (en die ligt in de buitenwereld), 2. Mensen, verzoeken, incidenten en acties steeds van geval tot geval bekijken en beoordelen.
12/ Mensen zijn flexibel. Als ik zou geloven dat mensen óf trash zijn óf deugen, dan zou mijn activisme geen zin hebben.
13/ Het doet me daarom zeer wanneer activisme zich verliest in dogmatisme en blind vijandschap. Ik weet dat het van alle tijden en plaatsen is, maar het doet toch zeer. Daar ging dit draadje over. Nu weer verder met het stichten van een inclusieve communistische bio-heilstaat.
14/ Laatste toevoeging: dit draadje gaat over activisme in het algemeen, ik zie deze tendens in alle hoeken en gaten, op twitter en daarbuiten. Het is van alle tijden ook, maar daarmee niet minder pijnlijk, in mijn ogen.”
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” — Return to Love by Marianne Williamson

“That’s a good question. The postmodern answer was, ‘we can’t.’ That’s not a good answer, because you drown in chaos under those circumstances. You can’t make sense of anything, and that’s not good, because it’s not neutral to not make sense of things. It’s very anxiety-provoking and depressing. If things are so chaotic that you can’t get a handle on them, your body defaults into emergency preparation mode. Your heart rate goes up, and your immune system stops working. You burn yourself out; you age rapidly because you’re surrounded by nothing you can control. That’s an existential crisis. It’s anxiety-provoking and depressing—very hard on people. Even more than that, it turns out that the way we’re constructed neurophysiologically is that we don’t experience any positive emotion unless we have an aim and we can see ourselves progressing towards that aim.
It isn’t precisely attaining the aim that makes us happy—as you all know if you’ve ever attained anything. As soon as you attain it, the whole little game ends, and you have to come up with another game. So it’s Sisyphus, and that’s ok. But it does show that the attainment can’t be the thing that drives you, because it collapses the game. That’s what happens when you graduate from university. It’s like, you’re king of the mountain for one day, then you’re like serf at Starbucks for the next five years.
Human beings are weird creatures: we’re much more activated by having an aim and moving towards it than we are by attaining it. What that means is that you have to have an aim, and that means you have to have an interpretation. It also means that the nobler the aim, the better your life. That’s a really interesting thing to know, because you’ve heard, ever since you were tiny, that you should act like a good person—you shouldn’t lie, for example. You might think, ‘well, why should I act like a good person? Why not lie?’ Even a three-year-old can ask that question—because smart kids learn to lie earlier, by the way—and they think, ‘why not twist the fabric of reality, so that it serves my specific, short-term needs?’ That’s a great question. Why not do that? Why act morally if you can get away with something, and it brings you closer to something you want? Well, why not do it? These are good questions. It’s not self-evident.
It seems, to me, tied into what I just mentioned. You destabilize yourself and things become chaotic, and that’s not good. If you do not have a noble aim, you have nothing but shallow trivial pleasures, and they don’t sustain you. That’s not good, because life is difficult. There’s so much suffering and complexity. It ends, everyone dies, and it’s painful. Without a noble aim, how can you withstand any of that? You can’t; you become desperate. Things go from bad to worse very rapidly, when you become desperate. And so there’s the idea of the noble aim, and it’s something that’s necessary. It’s the bread that people cannot live without. It’s not mystical bread: it’s the noble aim. And what is that? It was encapsulated, in part, in the story of Marduk: it’s to pay attention, speak properly, confront chaos, and to make a better world. It’s something like that. That’s enough of a noble aim so that you can stand up without cringing at the very thought of your own existence—so that you can do something that’s worthwhile, to justify your wretched position on the planet.” – Jordan B Peterson – Biblical Series I: Introduction to the Idea of God
