Our Bright Future #16: Evi Maes and Matthias Arentsen — Living Life in Line with Nature, Purity, and by Appreciation
We first met Evi Maes and Matthias Arentsen some years ago, in what feels now like a different timeline, on a spiritual high, when we were all aiming to awaken the world, one post at a time.
We reconnected with them a year or two later, in mid-late 2019, when we were flying through a dark night of the soul, and they suggested joining Oracle Girl’s purification space. They had been in the space for some time already. I will never forget what Evi told me when I offered, “well, I’m already working with a coach.” She said: “Forget about the coach, or any coach. This is GOLD.”
After being part of an amazing organization that showed them many things about what a positive future can look like, in Spring 2020, a gentle and powerful impulse directed their future lives. Evi woke up one morning and knew that she must plant seeds — that’s all she knew. She had never planted seeds; she didn’t have experience as a gardener; she didn’t know what she would grow or how she would do it. But she knew she needed to do it, and she began. Following this call, after a week, more than 150 pots with seeds sprouted on their veranda. Within a few weeks, they had a large vegetable garden, from which they shared the harvest with the locals, and a seed library for others.
Their non profit organization, In Line With Nature was born. Contributing to a new economy through action in line with nature.
That initial impulse unfolded a new path for Evi and Matthias — learning about themselves in the process of growing food and interacting with others around them in a new way. They felt a new relationship with nature, and with a new care economy that flows naturally when working with nature.
