Today in the Peace Valley we constructed our first community facility - The Tamazcal (known as Sweat lodge in English, or Znojnica as we funnily call it here). It took two-and-half days to build it from scratch. We went to pick the timber, made the skeleton, recicled construction blankets, recicled a huge inflatable swimming pool that was damaged and out of service, recicled parts of the trampoline that was destroyed in a storm two weeks ago, and recicled old clay bricks for centerpiece for hot stones.
It was amazing! And this evening we had the first tamazcal ceremony with a group of 12 people. We were blessed by a drummer friend who showed up in the perfect moment to guide the rhythm.
This Tamazcal is the showcase of true teamwork, combination of different expertises, and of blessing of the Universe. Early this morning the construction was not finished and it was left yesterday at nightfall in the very delicate moment. We had the blankets put on the cupola, but no waterproof cover. When we woke up it started snowing and it was very gray skies. I said: “come on! We need clear skies and warm day to finish.” In 15 minutes it stopped snowing. By the time we ate the breakfast and finished the morning spiritual program the sky completely cleared. There were almost no clouds and it was so warm that we worked without jackets or glows. It stayed like that for the next 4 hours that we needed to finish the work. When the last piece was put to place it stared snowing again with strong wind. What a perfection of the timing. I’m totally in love with the Divine Organizer. That is how it is when you practice Surrender and Allowing. It just works.

It is good to learn that physical action is the last step of material manifestation. You are primarily a non-physical eternal being. Then you are an energy physical being. Lastly you are a material physical being. Those should be the steps of your actions in this world. Firstly, make sure to align your mind with the Source of your existence. Identify yourself with the highest Consciousness that you are. Secondly, focus your intention and your mind, imagine and then feel the reality of the result you seek. Lastly, do the work that is necessary to be done. Work comes last.
If I could summarize the divine manifestation in this world it would be: Be conscious of your self, imagine, speak it and sing it, breath it and feel it, plan it and organize it, put your passion and emotion into it, and then do it!
That is what we have done here in the Peace Valley on the New Year morning. The whole group has used their bodies and minds to align with the highest truth of their reality and to open to the abundance of the Divine Source that comes to us directly and through our Sun. We were blessed with a beautiful warm sunny day. - Ivan Bavcevic, 01.01.2019.
The Universal Artist works every day and night creating unimaginable wonders for the pleasure of its creations, for the pleasure of us people. The ice structures on thousands of these plants in Peace Valley gets created each night, only to disappear with the warmth of the Sun during the day. Every night and day, the art gets made and destroyed. Would you be willing to be like the Nature itself? Would you be willing to give yourself into something, to create and to build, to express and show, only to see it disappear and to do it over and over again? With the same joy and enthusiasm?

REALITY AND REFLECTION
This Christmas night in Split was almost perfect to show the duality of the world. One part is real and one is a reflection. It’s a play of light, of colors and vibrations. The Mind is like water. It can reflect or it can distort. But it can never be the Reality. If the mind is calm enough, like the surface of the sea, it will come more closely to truly reflecting the reality behind. If it is disturbed, full of thoughts like the waves on the sea, then it will show a distorted image of something it is reflecting. Human mind these days mostly distorts. You can calm if down, you can breath and relax and come closer. But still, your mind will never be able to show anything more than an image and a reflection. Your mind will never be the Reality it is trying to conceive. For that, you will need to let it go and drop it.

Today is not only the beginning of the return of Light after the longest night in the year, but also the December full Moon. Your mind is at its highest power. Make sure you focus it on what you wish to perceive in your physical reality, rather than what you don’t want to experience. One of the basic laws of the Universe says: WHERE FOCUS GOES, ENERGY FLOWS. Where is your focus going today? What are you feeding with your mental power, success or failure? Pleasure or pain? Satisfaction or dissatisfaction?
Your physical reality includes mental, emotional, etheric, energetic and material levels, sensory and extrasensorial. Everything within the created world starts with the mind. Today is its most powerful expression. Let it shine, let it shine! Give yourself the right to dream and imagine big. Let your imagination go wild and wide, with no thoughts related to limitations or what is possible. In your mind everything is possible. Go out, look at the Moon, talk to it and speak to it about your dreams. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
