    Living Two Worlds- Combine the Modern and the Old Way

    This article is updated! Originally published in June 2021. Why should we want to stop and rethink our lifestyle? Living two worlds, combining the modern and the old-fashioned worlds, is for many people necessary. I know people who can’t find their way in this modern world with all the greediness, the destruction, the noise, the flood of impressions, the consumption, the exploitation of our world. They feel that they can’t escape a world that makes them ill anymore. If you love to live quietly and live in a growing city, you can’t flee the noise. Maybe you think these people are mostly older folks who lived in the older norm.…

    Summer in the City- Use Your Bicycle!-Update!

    Do you love summer? I know many people who actually don’t like the summer, because it is too hot, or they have pollen allergies what I think is really very uncomfortable, to say at least. Summer here in the Netherlands is beautiful but short, so I try to enjoy it very much. If you live in the city, you experience summer differently as someone who lives in the countryside, or close to the sea. Summer in the city, you might get your bicycle out, but maybe you experience problems with breathing? Here in the Netherlands, people cycle very much. The country is mostly flat, not in the south or east,…

    What are the Benefits of Shopping Local?

    Because of the Corona restrictions, many small businesses are nearly bankrupt. They are in lockdown and not allowed to open their shops. The big supermarkets and chains are still available for the people. It is ridiculous because it is so crowded that people cannot keep their distance when you go to a supermarket. You need to know the reason for this political decision. It is desired! You need to know what is going on to understand that there is an elite, only some thousand people, who try to control the world. The stakeholders behind these huge chains are the investors who own the food supply and make huge profits, a…

    How to Avoid Plastic Pollution?- The Threat- Update

    Plastic is a big problem for our planet! It was a discovery of the century, a beneficial material. But we have arrived at a point where we ask ourselves, “How to avoid plastic pollution?” Plastic particles are everywhere, in animals, oceans, soils, drinking water in the air we breathe, food, and in us. Everything is polluted, and the worse point is that plastic is hardly be avoided anymore. People know about the results of plastic pollution, but there are still not enough people who try sustainable ways of storage. Luckily, many people are against plastic and already use alternatives. And I hope more will join the movement! Plastic is Everywhere…

    The Beauty of the World I Knew

    We had a beautiful world, a life full of positive and negative happenings. We didn’t know that other humans who have much money and power had always influenced our world in such a way that they are even responsible for all the wars. I didn’t know! I didn’t know about false flags agendas. But what I knew was that we had to learn a profession, work a job, pay our expenses, pay taxes, and join the elections. I learned as a Christian to pray for the government and all our leaders so that we might have a peaceful, blessed life, and I did! Now I know all the hidden agendas…

    The Beauty of Christmas

    Christmas time was beautiful in my childhood, not because of the presents and the family coming together, but because there was always this feeling of peace inside me. The beauty of Christmas for me as a child was having a long time at home watching fairy tales, eating lots of sweets, and the magic of the lights in the living room while outside we experienced cold and snowy days. As a child, I witnessed many fights between my parents because my grandparents have visited us nearly every Christmas, and they presented themselves as quite dominant. The atmosphere forced me to seek my own inner peaceful space. However, the memories of…

    What Are The Benefits of Working From Home?

    Please, read my Affiliate Disclosure here! These days many of us are forced to stay home regarding the restrictions, new lockdowns. What are the benefits of working from home? I would love to hear your opinion. You know that many people lost their work or business due to the restrictions, the many lockdowns, and don’t know how to survive. Many businessmen and women are bankrupt, totally broken in their existence. However, I also see that people with the necessary vision and creativity create new businesses. I adore such people; their power and determination are impressive. You can see that whatever comes out of our reptilian brain results in defeat, depression…

    The Beauty of Life- Life is a Gift!

    The beauty of life lies in the creation of God, our creator of all life. Life is a gift! Especially in these times and history, we suffer from many man-made threats in which greedy people try to profit from certain situations. We are all born as free human beings, but because specific systems are suppressing their population, people are kept as slaves. For me, this is unacceptable that other fellow human beings think they have the power over the rest of the people and keep them poor and exploit their lives. The beauty of life is different for everyone, but it is about peace, respect, sensing, love, happiness, and creativity.…

    The Beauty of Using an Induction Hob!

    I am in love! I am in love with my induction hob! It has been the most significant decision since long to buy an induction hob. The beauty of using an induction hob is worth mentioning. For years we used a gas cooker, and I didn’t like it very much! In Germany, we use mostly electricity for cooking, but in the Netherlands, people use mainly gas. I disliked the mess I created while cooking the meals and never felt comfortable using gas. Many people in the Netherlands say that gas is the cheaper source, and maybe it was an inexpensive source for energy in the past, but the coming year…
