In what we do, the main engine is and remains the pleasure. The pleasure to create, to do it with people we like and the pleasure of making our small contribution.
Every now and then I get comments that surprise me: many people like to see rotten speculation everywhere. These comments, never done directly, paint us as a reality that only thinks about money, and usually the comments end up with the statement that "we are not yogic." As I have never been directly addressed with such comments, I am going to use this post to answer everyone and clarify some things.
First of all, in all our forms (Bellaria, Hari-Om, Festival etc.), we certainly are a business activity. In fact, I would like to be more professional and less "family". I, then, personally spend a good part of my time to become better in marketing strategies. That said, in what we do, the main engine is and remains the pleasure. The pleasure to create, to do it with people we like and the pleasure of making our small contribution. To me, a small contribution is stopping using time criticizing things we do not like, and, instead, using time and energy to create a micro world where we like to be and to welcome people who feel in resonance with us. We do not oblige anyone to be part of our world. In fact, we really do everything to divulge our characteristics so that those who do not feel like fitting into it, decide to spend their time elsewhere with mutual pleasure and earnings. The problem is that most of the human race is unable to have a neutral point of view of what is outside of the self. When this skill is lacking, what is seen outside is nothing but the crystalline mirror of what the observer is. If this were recognized it would be a great starting point, the dawn of a new start. Unfortunately, we usually prefer to think that shit is just outside even when it is overflowing from all the pores of our skin.
