It is just the beginning!!!!
Do you remember I started writing my blog when I “moved “ to Bhutan…I was of course very happy and enjoyed immensely to be with Tho, to meet his new friends and colleagues and to discover
Bhutan, but I was also a bit worried how we could make ONE of our already so rich life: Family, Eurasia GNH-Bhutan, our Sangha etc… (Tandin...you remember my dream with the suitcases...?)
When I was in Vietnam in October I realized
how incredible and how up to date concerning TODAYs world needs Tinh Truc Gia, the Peaceful Bamboo Family founded by Eurasia IS in every way ( social work, bio-dynamic agriculture, ecological lifestyle, team work, good governance, cultural life, spiritual
life, ongoing training, social entrepreneurship etc etc ) and how much this Impulse is “in tune” with GNH and with our Sangha and Family life.
I always knew it, but I realized how enriching it would be for everyone if we could even
formally make it somehow ONE…
Tho is in Hue Vietnam now and he managed to formalize this, YOUPIE!!!!!
TTG is becoming a partner of the GNH Centre Bhutan…too great!!!
Even more so
Tho and the TTG team managed to get an Agreement of Understanding with the City authorities in order for Eurasia to continue developing great projects, trainings etc…Khanh and me had worked hard on this Convention but I thought some points would be
difficult to negotiate, but Tho said there were NO questions and the City agreed to everything we asked! (Those who know any administration anywhere…know this is almost a miracle…right?)
I am really happy!!!
But now I see there is lot’s to do to live up to these promising projects!!!
I really do hope we will manage WELL: This is not possible without all the dedication, hard work, overcoming obstacles, love, joy, deep understanding
and enthusiasm of so many people
Of course there is the GREAT TTG Team: Mr Tu, Mrs Trinh, Mrs Hoa, Mrs Huyen, Mr Hung, Mr Hanh, Mrs Vong, Mrs Phu, Miss An, Mr Long, Mr Bien…and many others (like Lam, Huy, May etc..)
The Great Eurasia Team: Mr Khanh, the Eurasia Foundation board here in Switzerland (www.eurasia.org.vn) , the Eurasia Association board: Andres, Sara Martine, Sabrina, Peter, Elisabeth, Hong, Sam , Tho and me..
There are of course also our precious local partners and government, with who we found trustful and dynamic relations over the years.
There is Andreas, Jaqueline, Marc and Nadja and many more friends of the Lake Sangha and of Perceval and Camphill
without whom all this would not be possible.
To have our children, grandchildren, our families on board with their capacities, love, joy and understanding is crucial,
Thay and the big Sangha are a wonderful support
There is the GNH team
Dr Saamdou, Mrs Tandin, Miss Sherub, Miss Julie and the GNH board and many supporters, friends, volunteers and of course the enlightened Bhutanese Government and Leadership
There are our partners, the GPIW, the Presencing Institute, the
Wake Up movement...and many of YOU...
This makes quite a wonderful group…don’t you think so?
But we still need help and support,
Tho and me are getting a bit older (I guess?) and we
have to prepare a smooth “handover” of some of our tasks in the next 5-10 years…
It is one of the most joyful things to do to empower the next generation!
Those of you who read my blog “I believe
in the next generation” know that there is a great generation on the way and I know no need to worry...it is just the Beginning
