Bernard Poolman passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning, 11 August 2013 (SA time).

Bernard Poolman於2013年8月11日(南非時間)周日淩晨去世。

His heart stopped beating.

他的心臟停止了跳動。

The post that follows was written by Bernard’s daughter, Cerise Poolman – all of the members of Desteni living on the Farm stand by these words.

下文由Bernard的女兒Cerise Poolman所寫——所有住在農場的desteni成員都支持這些話。

正文:

Bernard Poolman is known as many things:

Bernard Poolman有許多為人所知的形象

A guru, a cult leader, an anarchist,

古魯(大師),邪教領袖,無政府主義者,

A communist, a socialist,

共產主義者,社會主義者,

A freedom fighter, a freedom writer,

自由戰士,自由作家,

An activist, a practivist,

一個激進主義者,一個實踐者,

A visionary, a loon

一個夢想家,一個瘋子

All these labels mean nothing.

所有這些標籤都毫無意義。

To me, he was Bernard, my dad, the most honest and self sacrificing person I have ever known.

對我來說,他就是Bernard,我的父親,我見過的最誠實、最自我犧牲的人。

Now he is dead, and the world is poorer for it.

現在他已逝去,世界因此更貧乏了。

He may have had radical ideas, but isn’t that exactly what we need?

他可能有些激進的點子,但這不正是我們需要的嗎?

We don’t seem to have come very far with “in the box” ideas.

我們似乎並沒有因著“框架內”的觀念取得很大的進步。

Look around, the Earth is being poisoned, people live in poverty, our children are crazy murderers, our religious leaders cannot be trusted with young children, our political leaders cannot be trusted with anything and our economists are simply making things up as they go along.

看看周遭,地球正在被污染,人們生活在貧困中,我們的孩子成了瘋狂的殺人犯,我們的宗教領袖無法被年幼的孩子信任,我們的政治領袖無法在任何事情上被信任,我們的經濟學家只會粉飾太平

We all buy into the propaganda that makes the world seem beautiful “just the way it is” – Bernard did not.

我們都輕信了洗腦宣傳,讓這個世界“如其所是的樣子”看似美好 —— 但Bernard沒有。

Does that make him crazy by definition?

這能讓他被定義為發瘋了嗎?

Yes, if the definition of insanity is something that is apart from the norm.

是的,如果瘋狂的定義是偏離慣例的話。

He questioned the inequality in the world and challenged us for not questioning it too – maybe this is why so many people hate him – they do not want to see themselves as ignorant, as idle bystanders watching atrocities and genocide unfold before their very eyes.

他質疑這世上的不平等,並挑戰我們為何沒有同樣的質疑不平等 —— 也許這就是為什麼這麼多人恨他 —— 他們不希望看見自己是無知的,是看著暴行和屠殺在自己眼前發生的袖手旁觀的旁觀者。

It is easier seeing ourselves the way people are portrayed in the media, as innocent, as deserving.

將自己視為是媒體所描繪的那種無辜與值得受到幫助的群眾,總是更簡單的。

Bernard was one man who made a difference in the lives of many – there are few people who can claim the same for themselves.

Bernard是一個改變了許多人的生命的人 —— 很少人可以宣稱自己也是如此。

There are those who point fingers and use nasty words to try and twist the message that Bernard was repeating over and over – what does this make them, I wonder?

有一些人指責Bernard並口出惡言試圖曲解Bernard一遍又一遍地重複的訊息——我想知道,這讓他們變成了什麼?

The message that Bernard kept saying was that of Jesus: Love thy neighbour as thyself, do unto another as you would like to be done unto you.

Bernard持續宣傳的訊息是耶穌基督的話:愛鄰如己。己所欲,施於人。

What does this make of the naysayers, the cult preachers, the vigilant protectors of “human rights and liberties” – that they call this message, and its sender “evil”?

那些否定者、邪教宣稱者、“人權和自由”的機警捍衛者,做出了什麼樣的理解,令他們把這個訊息和它的傳播者稱為“邪惡”?

Many accused him of being a cult leader, even though he said time and again: “I am not a leader, I am just a man, I am your equal and you are mine.”

許多人指責他是邪教領袖,儘管他一再表示:“我不是領袖,我只是一個人,我與你們相等同,你們亦與我相等同。”

He was accused of being evil for recognising that our world, our society, our very selves are tainted – and that we have deliberately continued on as if we are angels.

他被指責是邪惡的,只因為他發覺到我們的世界、我們的社會、我們自己 - 都已被腐化了——而我們蓄意的保持下去彷彿我們是天使。

He was accused of brainwashing, for questioning the things we so blindly accept as being “Normal” and “acceptable” – such as poverty, crime, exploitation, rape, murder, unhappy marriages, psychological disorders, economic theories, wars, the creation of weapons, the minimum wage being far from sufficient to survive on.

他被指控洗腦,只因為質疑了那些被我們當做“正常”及“可接受”而盲目接納的的事物——比如貧窮、犯罪、剝削、強暴、謀殺、不幸的婚姻、精神失調、經濟理論、戰爭、武器的製造、遠遠不夠生存的最低工資。

You may ask “what now? ”to us loony cultists trying to make the world a better place.

你可能會對我們這些試圖讓世界變得更美好的瘋狂邪教份子提問:那現在呢?

My answer: we continue.

我的回答是:我們繼續。

We have laid down a good, strong foundation of principles and assistive tools to support ourselves with.

我們已經奠定了原則及協助工具之良好堅實的地基來支援我們自己

Bernard contributed many ideas which we then developed into tools, such as DIP Pro and DIP Lite – but each of us has walked our own process – and we did not do it for him, we did it for ourselves and for all life on Earth.

Bernard提出了很多想法,然後我們把這些想法發展成工具,例如DIP Pro課程和DIP Lite課程——但我們每個人都走過了自己的進程——我們這樣做不是為了他,而是為了我們自己,為了地球上所有的生命。

They say you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink – Bernard showed us where the water is, but each of us made our own choice to stand and live the principles of Desteni, Equal Money, Living Income Guaranteed etc.

他們說你可以把馬帶到水邊,但你不能讓牠喝水——Bernard告訴了我們水在哪裡,但我們每一個人都自己做出了選擇,去站立並活出Desteni、平等金錢系統、生活收入保證(*全民基本收入)等等的原則

We must now prove to the world that Bernard was no “guru” – that we are entirely capable of standing without him, and growing ourselves and the group.

我們現在必須向世界證明Bernard不是“古魯(大師)”——我們完全有能力在沒有他的情況下站起,讓我們自己及團體成長。
