The Wisdom of the Circle 2

What is a connection circle?

In a connection circle we try to create a connection between us. We want to connect with each other, to be together, and in this context we create a common space. It is a kind of communal space, in which each takes distance from himself (ego). We enter the common desire and within that we can build a system of connection between us.

To the extent that we try to connect more, we will suddenly start to feel the connection between us. There are all kinds of connections there and we start to distinguish the different kinds of connections we have. We discover a system of forces, the more inner life. And then we learn how we are connected with each other and what this network is that binds us together. In this way we begin to discover the spiritual world.

We try to associate all our desires with the spiritual world. For example, if there are great desires behind me, then I transform them more and more in the direction of connecting with everyone. In this way I reach the perfect state. Where everything is connected with each other, myself and the group. And the selfish desires we transform for the connection of all of us. In this way we all achieve that we have nothing left of those selfish desires. Everything is transferred to the connection, and that is called reaching the end of correction. From there we can redesign the world.

The Method

There are many psychological methods in our world, various religious and spiritual methods that ruin our desires. And integral education says no, we must leave desires as they are. Only their use must change, from “for oneself” to “for others”. And this is what we are actually trying to do in a circle. When we succeed, and that same desire is for the benefit of others, instead of for ourselves, we will feel the connection. 

The circle method teaches us one thing, how to correct ourselves; how to connect with each other. It is actually about making aware the connection that is already there. By connecting with each other above the ego, we can, with the help of this circle method, come to an ever larger connection. The circle method is the most efficient way to come to a connection. There will be more and more need to be in the circle, and the person will feel integrated in a group.

The circle method is a method of revelation of the connection that already exists at a higher level. That we come together in a circle, each one cancels himself, submits to others, connects with all the people in front of him, integrates into them until he stops feeling himself, but rather feels “us”. This is already a kind of new reality which did not exist before. The group then becomes an entity which exists on its own. 

In other words, first there were ten*, and now these ten have connected, so this connection is called a group. And in this group everyone is equal, each of them includes everyone. I go above myself, and the same goes for each of them. In this way we reach connection. 

*The circle is formed with a maximum of ten people

If We Want to Heal Our Body, We Also Need to Heal Our Environment


Since the start of Covid_19 tensions have increased all over the world. And these social tensions have resulted in violent conflicts.

What turns out is that hatred is the real pollution. And the statement ‘A healthy body in a healthy mind’ also applies to our social environment, our social body. In a healthy environment where people’s thoughts about each other are loving and caring, the environment (society) will also be healthy.


As soon as we transcend our differences and connect with each other in a common goal (a healthy society), a healthy society will become possible. This will also have an enormous positive effect on our physical health.

We Are All in the Same Boat

If we take care of each other, we also take care of the earth. Then we don’t need it to fill our emptiness with stuff. We are then filled with attention and love. 

We are all connected with each other and the coronavirus is a good example of this. There is nothing more we can do without having an effect on everyone around us. It crosses all borders. 

This boat “Earth” is the only one we have. If I drill a hole in this boat, it will affect everyone in this boat. Leaving the ship with a lifeboat is no longer possible, we can’t shut ourselves off from the rest of the world. I influence others and others influence me.

Mutual Responsibility

The realization that we are all ‘invisibly’ connected to each other and all influence each other, brings with it a great responsibility. Because we can influence others and the world in a positive or negative way. It is our job to take care of each other, and to make sure that no one is left out. And this is a mutual responsibility.

The good news is, that by consciously working on our mutual connection and striving for good relations, we can influence everything positively. Because when we develop better relations we have, simply put, less need to fill the emptiness with stuff. We do our best to have a good relation with each other in spite of our differences. If we can give each other attention, care and love, we will all be better off, including the earth and everything that lives on it.

The Method of Connection

The method of connection starts from recognizing that we are egoistic by nature—we each by default consider self-benefit over benefiting others—and that this egoistic quality is the cause of all our problems.

Approaching love and unity as a game

Therefore, approaching love and unity is done not naively, but as a game: that we set a goal to positively connect above the innate division and differences we feel toward each other—not erasing those divisive sensations, but being aware of them and their source—and then acting out a social atmosphere where we each aim to mutually support, encourage and inspire each other to connect, and feel each other—ultimately, all of humanity—no less than we feel our own families and ourselves.

Playing such a game brings us closer to the fundamental laws of nature: laws of love, giving and connection. We thus awaken a positive influence from nature that helps us feel each other more closely, accelerating the pace of our development to feeling people who were as strangers, to feeling everyone as a single family.

The Pandemic Will Not be Over Soon

The pandemic will not be over soon, despite the fact that there will be an easing of the stay-at-home orders. Reducing the coronavirus requires a step forward towards mutual attention and responsibility, from ordinary citizens to world leaders.


The coronavirus struck a blow to the selfish, competitive rat race we were in, and overtime we calmed down our consumptive lifestyle, as it was the norm to exploit others for personal gain.

We can now look forward to a positive future that will be calmer than our lives have always looked until now, more balanced with each other and nature. Weeks and months of isolation will certainly play a role in an inner transformation.

Not going back to how it has been

Do we really think that – when all restrictions are lifted – we’ll be on our way to all kinds of shopping malls again, filling our bags with new clothes and plastic stuff, and that we’ll fly to all kinds of tourist destinations again, to all corners of the world?

One of the biggest advantages of this pandemic is the fact that we treat each other more calmly and are no longer focused on our own advantage, at the expense of others, that we now have a clear example of nature, because it treats everyone in the same way; it would be wise if we were to apply this to each other as well.

Nature is one whole

Nature is working with us, trying to wake us up to the fact that we are all in the same boat. We will come out of this pandemic with more awareness of our common situation, from a broader perspective, seeing nature as one whole.

The Coronavirus Opens up a Road to a New Way of Life

Suppose nature is intelligent. The coronavirus is turning our world upside down. Every person on this world is somehow connected to this virus, no one can escape it. Nature is forcing us to pause and think about what we’re doing. What have we done so far as humanity and how do we want to proceed? We are on the threshold of a new era. As human beings we are the only ones who have been given free will and it is now up to us to make a new choice. Do we want to continue in the same way and destroy the world, or do we want to take a new evolutionary step and use our free will to love our neighbor as our selves and balance humanity with nature? 

Cells of one body

In order to have a healthy body, it is necessary that all cells work together with a common goal. The common goal is to keep the body healthy. We can look at mankind as a large body, with people as the cells of that body. If we would behave as individuals like these cells, the whole of humanity and the earth would be healthy. What if our goal was not to take care of myself alone, but to take care of mankind as a whole. And if every individual does that, I would also be taken care of, and I would no longer have to think about myself. 

In a body, all cells work together and each cell has a specific task. There are cells that together form an organ, with a specific task. In the same way every human being has his unique talents. And if a cell doesn’t do its job, the body gets sick. All other cells will do everything to make the body healthy again. If we then look at wild animals, we see that they do not get sick. They do not eat too much or unhealthy food, they are not too fat, they are in balance with their environment, with nature. They don’t take more than they need. 

Free will 

Now let’s extend this equation to mankind as one big body. With our free will, we can do whatever we want. Until now man has always used his free will to think mainly about himself, how he could make life better for himself. This leads to proliferation, just like cancer cells in a body. For example, food without any nutritional value, pollution, airplanes and cars, melting ice caps, the extinction of animal species, wars and the weak that are exploited, and so on. 

We feel that nothing can happen to us. By now we live like kings and even that is not enough, we still want more. The newest phone, the newest car, even bigger than the last one. But now we are called back by nature, we can’t go on living indefinitely from selfish motives alone anymore. We can use our free will to balance humanity with nature. After all, if we as humans start behaving as cells of one body with the common goal of balancing humanity and nature as a whole. Living together in harmony, that is what nature wants from us and it forces us to come there with a soft hand.
