Kaj je prineslo 2010?

Leto 2010 je prineslo obilico tako dobrih kot slabih dogodkov, vsem pa je bila skupna intenzivnost dogajanja, v sorazmerno kratkem casu. Obisk generalne direktrorice UNESCA Irine Bokove je bil uvod v leto, in ostanek leta ni bil nic kaj manj pomemben. Mutacija kot proces je bila rdeca nit skozi dogodke, in kot zakljucek je bila serija odlicnih predavanj George Van Vrekhema v pozni jeseni. Obcutek mutacije, kot procesa, nas je verjetno vse "zavzela”, ne kot posameznike, pac pa kot kolektivno clovestvo. Spremembe, ki se dogajajo niso v krogu uveljavljenega reda stvari ali bitij. Uveljavljen red se sam po sebi razkraja. In drugost bitij je pricela zavzemati njegovo mesto. Read more

Question pour Irina...

Irina Bokova, est la nouvelle et première femme directrice générale de l'UNESCO. Le 12 janvier dernier, elle nous a fait l'honneur de sa présence en visite officielle à Auroville. Elle commença sa visite par une méditation au Matrimandir et nous rejoignis juste après dans la salle de conférence du Town Hall où les résidents d'Auroville l'attendaient. Elle mentionna son désir de changement vers un nouvel humanisme. Une fois le discours terminé, nous avons été invité à prendre un thé et des petits gâteaux avec Mme Bokova pour une rencontre de proximité avec les Auroviliens.

Who is executive?

Marc Luyckx, member of advisory council gave us his feedback about the last General Meeting on 21st of July. He believes that Auroville will need a new political system of democracy which will be suitable to deal with 50 000 people. Right now is not certain who is executing what, and is not well understood that executing power is only a service to the community with limited time of elected executives, and that legislative and executive powers are not the same. Positive thoughts of Julian Lines leaded into direction of women rule in executive powers, and Mother was always encouraging women to be in the Senat in order to get executive powers.
