Today the 30th of April we celebrate the birthday of our Queen Beatrix in Holland. Actually it’s the birthday of her Mom, who used to be Queen before her. Because her mother (Juliana) was very beloved, Beatrix decided she would continue to celebrate this day. Out of Love and Respect for her mother, a beautiful thought.
We have a good and brave Queen. After the terrifying experience the Royal family witnessed two years ago ( A dude drove through the crowd towards the bus where the Royal Family was in, a terrible event in which several people died, including the driver himself) she refused to cancel the celebration of Queens day. There have been more issues where safety was in danger but she never stepped back afterwards.
‘We choose to live our lives in Trust, we do not choose to live our lives in fear. We are going to continue to celebrate “Koninginnedag” (Queens day)’ was the outcome of that. The Dutch population agreed.
As I watched the start of this Queens day in this beautiful little white village in Holland where the Royal Family would arrive, I started to feel emotional. I asked myself why.
Normally I do not feel tears coming up when I see the Queen or members of the Royal Family. So why now? I watched the crowd, all the people cheering, dressed up in orange (the national color of Holland) and looked at the many children sitting on the shoulders of their parents. Singing, longing to catch a glimpse of the Queen and Maxima and Willem Alexander. The rest of the Royal Family is great too, but these three are the real persons they want to see and shake hands with when possible. The visiting of two towns at one day is special and very much Loved because of the many things people can do to give the Queen and the Royal Family an impression of their lives. Old Dutch games, sportive activities, old and new professions, Dutch treats, great dansers and great music and much more! All the members of the Royal Family are sincerely interested and they are really having fun! Shaking hands, taking pictures together with Maxima and Prince Willem Alexander, biking with them or walking on a rope over a river, everything is possible this day! And people are extremely Happy and feel united!
Today the Royal Family arrived by bus and began their walk on the orange carpet that was laid down through the entire cities. Happy people, waving, shouting and laughing. The interaction between Dutch people and the Royal Family is huge! Drawings of little kids reached out and the Queen who accepts these with a huge smile and personal interest in what the little ones tell her. Not in a formal but in a totally relaxed and very informal way when you compare this with the English Royal Family. But again: why does this make me tear?
I instantly knew it as I watched the crowd. Every time when people are united in Happiness and Togetherness, I feel very emotional. The reason why is easy. This is the world I want to create myself, this is my ultimate goal in life. I simply LOVE, HARMONY and TOGETHERNESS. Where these three combine you will never find HATE, REVENGE or SELFISHNESS…
One of the reasons why I came to this earth is the want to create and inspire people to LOVE, findHARMONY and feel TOGETHERNESS. Does this mean I am a dreamer chasing for Utopia? No! It means I KNOW what I WANT with my Life here.At this point Brian kicks in.
Brian shares the same dream; to create more HAPPINESS in ourselves and in people we meet, in readers to be of our books. That is a dream too! To write together and to publish our inspirational and down to earth dreams that are no dreams but real tools people can use in their lives. There are so many insights to share….
The question many people ask themselves is why on earth they are here on earth….. What is the main goal in my life? Well, how do you think you can discover what your personal goal is? When I just think about how many people we will be able to reach! Another TDM…another Tear Dropping Moment indeed.
Would you like to know what you really want in life? Wouldn’t this be the ULTIMATE GIFT you could possibly wish for?
Brian and I will be starting to write together about this soon. Next to the translation of my children books into English, I want to write different books WITH Brian. And start travelling around to tell people about this. Making a movie that will create a real change in people’s lives!
Back to the tear dropping event on Queens day. I feel SO MUCH JOY and HOPE and TRUST in my soul when I see this all is possible. Because these people all feel the same at the same time. LOVE, HARMONY and TOGETHERNESS expressed in a deep JOY! It LIVES in the souls of people. It is the fundament on which we built relationships, Love relationships, work related relationships etc. When we start to LOVE ourselves and start to SEE who people truly are; when we start to express NOT JUDGMENTAL thoughts, when we feel GOOD ENERGY and feel a WANT to expand this together WITH The Others, we will be able to create WAY MORE HAPPINESS, a result of this is HARMONY and the feeling of TOGETHERNESS will accompany that. A Utopia?
Not when you believe in it, so how about you? Do you feel a want to live your life in LOVE, HARMONY and TOGETHERNESS? How about starting with it today, right now?
