LFA2017 – 3R

Past Friday LFA2017 has successfully started, and Ribhu and Marc are talking about it.
As Ribhu says “a little campaign” of LFA or Litter Free Auroville 2017 is going on for next almost three weeks with the main purpose to engage the whole community on the topic of our trash. They are trying to center their efforts in the ways how to treat our garbage with the mission to come to the zero waste…
Wastless(educational part), Upcylcing Studio(take care of difficult waste stream) and Eco Service(picking our daily waste) are main players in those efforts, and they are trying to reach integral service, an approach to treat waste.
Marc and Ribhu founded their “heart” in garbage, and are passionately dealing with waste …. on the road of sustainability, which always starts with ourself, on daily basis.

Reduce Reuse Recycle
and sometimes also
Refuse

Litter Free Auroville Day 1

Litter Free Auroville is an initiative put forward in order to eliminate waste from Auroville by using creative means. The first day we witnessed performances where plastic and other waste products were used as instruments. The exhibitions also opens up an array of creative ways these wastes can be used innovatively. We also spoke to the organizers of the event who gave us further clarity on the aim behind the initiative.

Sri Aurobindo The Synthesis of Yoga

Frequency of the week | ECHO
Our soul is constantly working for us. She shows us the way and wants to inspire us. Often we don’t listen, because the signals from the soul sometimes seem illogical. They don’t fit within the boundaries of our thinking. This is what you experience when you feel something is going to happen, but you are not sure exactly what.

At a subconscious level you pick something up, something that you cannot explain within your head. That ‘something’ feels like an echo. It’s the reflection of what your soul transmits to give you information about where you are right now. Echoes can repeat frequently or not; it all depends on where you want to go. That is why it’s important to give your soul the right information. Tune into exactly what you want, what makes you happy and which people or situations will help you further. Just like a radio station, your soul will transmit the exact signal to you at the right moment just before you reach your next station.

The frequency of Echo gives you insight into which energy you transmit and when it will echo back to you.

Affirmation of this week: Echoes from the soul give me insight to what I transmit and receive.

CAT11, Citizen One

Saturday, March 4th at 8pm at Kalabhumi amphitheater – You are Warn NOT TO WATCH Citizen One.

Saturday March 4th at 8pm Well Cafe at SveDame – Live Concert – Optymistic French , contribution required.

Two things you must never forget: Sri Aurobindo’s compassion and the Mother’s love, and it is with these two things that you will go on fighting steadily, patiently, until the enemies are definitively routed and the Victory is won for ever. Courage outside, peace inside and a quiet unshakable trust in the Divine’s Grace. -The Mother19 May 1933

frequency of the week – ABUNDANCE
Everything we need in life on Earth has been created for us in abundance. We often have difficulty accepting this, because we are prone to think in terms of lack. We cling onto the idea of security because we are afraid of having nothing. Energy is everywhere and everlasting.

Do not restrict yourself by thinking too small, because with the proper intentions everything is possible. You just need to believe.

The frequency of Abundance shows you that you already have everything you need to realise your dreams, no matter how big your ambitions are.

Consciousness is a reality inherent in existence. It is there even when it is not active on the surface, but silent and immobile; it is there even when it is invisible on the surface, not reacting on outward things or sensible to them, but withdrawn and either active or inactive within; it is there even when it seems to us to be quite absent and the being to our view unconscious and inanimate.
