Diary Of Deeds or Why The School No Longer Exists

Cologne, Germany, Jun 28th 2018

OPEN LETTER TO MRS. BARBARA FRENZ

Dear Mrs. Frenz.

From the beginning of 2015 until the middle of 2017 I run a Hatha Yoga School which was situated in a house in your property, as it was written in the lease.

I was your tenant I was not in a contact to you but with your representative. Two years after I have singed the lease I had a not nice opportunity at all to meet you personally.

Since, after all, your choice is that we do not have personal contact and since it is not about a private flat but about a public place, I feel that I should address myself to you in this way. I would like to remind you of a few things and publicaly ask you a few questions.

Besides, a free expression and the truth itself are for me, as a human being, the most precisious and healthy nutrition.

Your answers will be so helpful not only to me but many.

Let us have a quick look in some details together.

Even if these details are a part of an not sweet past at all jet they are inspiring, today, and they will be inspiring tomoroww as well.

 

End of 2014.

You have rented me a space for my school in Cologne. Your choice was not to mention to me that the space had a huge water damage.

It was, naturally, just a question of time when I would contact you asking you to enable me to continiue my honestly and devotendly teaching in your property which I have regularly paid each and every month.

Hence, it was just a question of time when you would need to resorve the problem once again and to eliminate the damage in the room.

And this time came in August 2016.

My  worrisome and from my heart felt and written plea to perceive me, mine and the health of others left mostly with no response. You had no time for it or were on holiday.

 

End of 2016.

After a long, patiently, neatly, self- and disciplined waiting the end of 2016 I had to ask the tenant association for help. I needed help in order to keep on talking to you and your represantative even though I did my best to avoid this, for me a new, way of communication.

I needed help in order to organize and justify rare jet continuously unfairly untruths and mystically veiled emails which I was getting from your side. And I also needed to get the justice on move. There was about not my personal hyphothesisi and rumors, but the pure facts, otherwise I wouldn’t have to neither ask the tenant association for help nor to write this letter.

Someone had to help me in this battle and to support me to bring the reason and the things to the harmony, not theoretically but pragmatically and practically, not minimalistic but maximalistic.

I am surely not the best expert in many fields but I am in possesion of an great recognition which I have gained on the path and this is that reality is what true is. But, even if I believe that this my recognition is great, in this case it was just a minimalistic attitude and without great effort, knowledge, experience, proffesionality and gentlemenhood of the assessors and the whole constitution of the tenant assosiation it would bring me nowhere. Your mistically veiled games were even fo me who already long time ago recognized what can bring good to the people, too much.

Apropos members of the tenants association, or the Mitglieder.

I have very well carried about our correspondence from the very begging of it until its end and I  also have printed it. It is in a yellow folder. The folder is very thick and the most of its volume make my letters written to you and your representative since August 2016. As the natural laws immpecable arrange it, I have opened the folder some time ago. One letter written by you to the tenant association drew my attention particularly and remembered me that I might and should teach you about something.

Members of tenant association are, Mrs, Frenz, no fictional shapes which lives on the imaginary planet and no fantastic figures from the “Never-ending Story”. They are not some gaseous beings which evaporate and disappear but real people which live in the real world, around you, and therefore one does not need to place the word members in quotations marks, as you did in the letter written to the tenant association, in one moment, out of your fictitious world.

Thanks to the same tenant association you have perceived me in January 2017 and on your own wish, as my landlord, as you have said, appeared personally in the room. That is the only time I’ve seen you, in January the 6th, 2017.

 

SOME MORE LINES

The next few lines are part of my dairy which has accompanied me through a not simple episode of life at all and it has been published anywhere jet. Although the content of these lines are by now historical, I mantain that it is important to mention it. Since the past very often turnes to presence, these lines enable us to learn something new. We are all older and, it should be, wiser.

Let’s have a deeper look at these lines together.

Please allow me thereby to express my feelings. People who express their feelings are not underdeveloped, primitive, barbaric and uncivilized people. It is no shame to show feelings. People should express their feelings. If they not do so and instead always talk behind other’s back and laugh at others, their feelings, thoughts and deeds, and therewith their psyche and the entire nucleou of their being will be unbalanced and they can get sick.

An depraived interpersonal as well as intrapersonal communication make the core of the entire individual bad.

An deprived core of the individula lead to bad core of the society, which no one wishes.

Life is too beutiful jet too short for so much confusions.

That is why an sincere and expression from the heart is very important for people, and that is why I will not apollogize to anyone because I am talking honestly.

Before these meeting I asked you written to speak only the truth to me and to balanced the words and deeds of yours with those of your representative, and to keep it up to the level appropriate for the state and pleas of your dialogist.

Instead, you came to this meeting with higly uprised head which was, as I could percieve instantly and with no doubt, solely oriented to an momologe but not an dialogue. At the meeting you were acting as quickly as possible and you were offended, loud, manipulative, self-centered and disrespectful towards me and all the people who had enything to do with this room and who do not belonged to your side.

Nobody was important to you.

And nobody knew anything.

But you have got good along with the architect who was there. Whithin two minutes he was chainging his mind. He even acted as he was my landlord. You did not react on this. Even at his note that that students and I are breathing in this room and so have caused the enoruos humidity in the wall you were silent. Your silence seemed to me as your approval. He was also very loud at this meeting, he acted swiftly, he have said and determinated more than you did yourself as my landord or your own deputy during all time of our quadruple (you, your deputy, tenant association an me) tenant-land lord existing.

Normally, landlords recieve the money for the rent, they shuold respect their tenants and protect them from the unpleasant situations because they get money from their tenants.

At that meeting you even didn’t know what exist in the room which is in your property. Your searching for the devices – in order to have an argument more, I guess- which didnt not exist in the room was also very offensive even if I have told you several times where you can find the devices you were searching for. I knew the room very well, every pore, every corner. We have breathing and practicing antient yogic techniques in this room. It was a heaven of peace, cleanliness, chastity, honesty, and openness, which I took very good care about and kept on a high level.

You were playing and manipulating with these as well as with all my qualities. And you were very manipulative in general.

Therewith you have also hurt my feelings.

And I have kindly asked you to inform yourself about my activities in your room before meeting as well as to come to the meeting well equiped with the right informations.

At this, our only meeting ever, I could feel and see the huge fire in your eyes. I felt back then that this fire would most likely destroy me insanteounsly  if I had not been ready to fight with all my heart for mine and the rights of others and for the entire humanity. What have I done to you, Mrs. Frenz, to have to be treated like that by you? I have never seen you before. You don’t know who am I, what knowledge, experience, virtues, and abilities I am dealing with, which genes the molecules in my body care, nor you know anything about my epigenetic inheritance.

Our only connection was your bank account I was paying the rent regularly each and every month on.

Money was the only communication between us.

At that meeting you have turned your back to me and treated me like no one in my entire, rich life lived in several countries.

At one pint at this meeting it seemed that you had compassion for the situation in which I was and asked me if I feel well in the room. You were agin faster. Before I could express my feelings , showing the door you told  me that I could go out if I did not feel well in the room.

In this meeting we have not been alone.

 

And then, suddenly, you have denied your spoken words.

And there, in January 2017, begins the even more elaborate and exhausting communication between the tenant association and you.

Letters of all kinds, registrated letters, registrated post with a return advice, registrated letters with the acknowledgement,.

Return receipts.

Emails.

Postponements of deadlines.

Untruths.

Games.

Hide-and-seek.

No respond.

No respond.

Waiting. Waiting. Waiting, from mine and the side of the tenant association respectively.

In your eyes I was still guilty because of the huge humidity in a room and you were continuously were blaming me for it. Many emails came out of the fondation you are leading.

Your fantasy had no limit.

And I was continously down-to-earth asking your to speak truth to me, to respect me as well the great experience of the craftsmen were investigating the room.

I was continiously keeping your property neatly and paying the rent properly.

There was a huge and exausting mess caused by lack of sincerity and harmony between your and the words, deeds, notes and perpetually blame of your represantative. It was very confused who actually owns what and who and what he exactly wanted from me. And why.

Your words, decisions and deeds often left me speechless, almost paralysed.

It is a long story.

Luckily I have the skills which expand my courage, my mental and the capacity of my heart with every new experience and challange regardless on the linguistical language.

 

May 2017.

After several requests from the tenant association you have received a termination without notice for the third time.

And this time it really happened.

The handover should be on 31.05.2017 until 16 o’clock.

Neither you nor your representative has appeared at this by the juristical determined meeting.

I left your room at that day and sent the keys of your property to you by mail.

Our lease got a new adjective: former.

But you still had no desire to pay me back the deposit and other payments.

 

Middle of July 2017.

A new chapter begins.

You are writing a mail as usually both to a tenant association and me asking from me to fix a few things in the room, among others to remove a sticker with a name of my school from the postbox,  giving me a very short time it. If I do not fix the things until August the 5th you will keep the rent deposit, you have said.

A part of you requests I have done properly and on time and the rest of your requests, the tenant association, which were waiting for months for you to do honorably your civil duties, rejected by the law.

 

July/August 2017.

You are still not willing to pay the rent deposit back. Other payments were not even the topic.

And there begins a new chapter.

You have started to bargain with me and tenant association respectively.

 

Year 2018.

All possible companies and experienced technicians confirm verbally as well as written that the wall in the basement I have rented from you for my yoga school should not be disassemble, as you did in ten years ago, and that the cause of the enormous humidity of the wall, therewith the air humidity, was, of course, not the breathing of my and my students, but the reason for all this is a huge lack in a building construction. It is about your own property and for all decisions regarding the space are your own.

Hence, the communication between me and tenant association respectively, and you, regarding the issue in the room has last for very long:

From the middle of 2016 until a few weeks ago when, in the name of my upbringing, serenity, creativity, creation and exhaustion and in the name of the pervasive beauty I decided not to undertake the lawsuit against you and your representative respectively and to leave to you what belongs to me.

Besides, the lawsuit might cost me much more and take much longer time. My decision has brought the issue to an end, one way or another.

You don’t need to bargain anymore.

And you also don’t have a motive to be a person which you turned to be in the past years.

And I am very happy that we have this story behind us.

 

You are part of my experience, knowledge and life, oh, là, là, what a life! I have learned a lot from you and I am forever grateful to you for giving me a lesson.

 

At this point I would also like to thank you with all my heart for paying me the rent deposit and one part of other amounts which I paid to you a few years ago. The rest, I decided, you can keep.

I leave you what belongs to me.

Let bygones be bygones.

Jet I feel free and freed, in the name of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in my name as well as in the name of the 60.000 members of Cologne’s tenant association, in the name of millions of members of tenant association throughout Germany, in the name of all tenants who are not able to pay the membership of the tenant association and in the name of humanity to ask you a few questions.

 

You are a director of the foundation that has a long tradition and that promotes education.

To keep on task, as you have said several times during our only meeting, Mrs. Frenz, without combative fire in my eyes jet with full lungs and my curiously burning heart I am asking you:

if you take away what belongs to us, how should we, academic as well as non-academic, young as well older generations, take on or continiue our education? Education in Germany, just as everywhere else in the world, is not free. In Germany one can get nothing in vain.

Which sun should shine in our lives as well, since the education the second sun for the educated is, as the ancients knew?

Well, one also need to learn how to act.

One must to pay the price, either way.

How we should maintain in a healthy balance between freedom, which is “not self-evident”, as it says on the website of the foundation you are leading, and security, well, which brings security?

If you are renting to me a room fully aware of its unhealthy conditions how can I teach people how to understand, feel and take care for their bodies and precious breath, or to increase consciousness?

If you take the money what belongs to me how can I rent and pay a  space in which I can teach people to relax from the enormous daily tasks and let go?

To talk to them about the universal principles or how import is to have an clear conscience.

Hence, to share what I live and love.

An ancillary business is, traditionally, not in my interests. In earning without any effort I am traditionally not good either.

In speculations I am very bad, in the ability to make the difference between fog and light on the other hand very good.

How should I remain truthful to my inherited skills to help poor and poorer people if you keep what is mine?

Why do we have to fight, in a civilized world, to get what belongs to us?

 

Why do you keep what belongs to us?

 

How should 7.6 Billion humans on Earth live in harmony, as everything is connected and nothing is separated?

Mrs. Frenz, what the sentence Human Dignity Is Invioable means?

Is it a quote?

Which kind of life we have right of if you are talking what belongs to us and if you are behaving to us as you do?

 

In the name of the present and in the name of the human future, and in the hope that I will not once again get the answer that “I do not must to know it” (and thus ask you the same equestion once again that is unpleasant for you- please remember and please do not give a motive for it, once again) and instead get public and direct answers from you understandable for all kind of people I am waiting curious and eagerly.

 

Best regards,

OPEN LETTER TO MR. STEPHAN ROTTHAUS

 

Dear Mr. Rotthaus.

We have got to know each other at the end of 2014 in Cologne when you showed me the room that I supposed to rent from you.

I had almost forgotten the room when you gave me a call a few weeks later bringing the good news- I could rent the room from you.

And I have done it with joy.

I have signed up the rent contract,and I was running a Hatha Yoga School in that room from the beginning of 2015 until the mid of 2017.

During that time I have had contact mostly with you but not with the official landlord. You were the represantative of the official lady landlord.

Because of, after all, your personal choice not to have personal contact with me and because it is about a school which was public and not about a private flat, I feel that I should refer to you in this way. I would like to remaind you of a few things and to ask you a few questions publicaly.

Besides, a free expression and the truth itself are for me, as a human being, the most precisious and healthy nutrition.

Your answers will be so helpful not only to me but many.

Let us have a look into the couple of details from the past.

Even if they are not sweet and part of the past jet they are inspiring.

Please allow me thereby to express my feelings. People who express their feelings are not underdeveloped, primitive, barbaric and uncivilized people. It is no shame to show feelings. People should express their feelings. If they not do so and instead always talk behind other’s back and laugh at others, their feelings, thoughts and deeds, and therewith their psyche and the entire nucleou of their being will be unbalanced and they can get sick.

An depraived interpersonal as well as intrapersonal communication make the core of the entire individual bad.

An deprived core of the individula lead to bad core of the society, which no one wishes.

Life is too beutiful jet too short for so much confusions.

That is why an sincere and expression from the heart is very important for people, and that is why I will not apollogize to anyone because I am talking honestly.

 

Hence, the end of 2014 you have rented a space for my school. Your personal choice was not to mention to me that the space had a huge water damage.

I had a good care about about your property, have regularly paid the rent and lead the school with joy.

Time and experts have proven that the watter damage was not cleaned up well.

It was, naturally, just a question of time when I would contact you asking you to enable me to continiue my honestly and devotendly teaching in your property which I have regularly paid each and every month.

Hence, it was just a question of time when you would need to resorve the problem once again and to eliminate the damage in the room.

 

And this time came in August 2016.

My worrisome and heartfelt pleas were  landing continuously in your self constructed sphere. You had no time to answer or/and you were on holiday.

And so after long, patiently, neatly, self- and disciplined waiting the end of 2016 I had to ask the tenant association for help. I needed help in order to keep on talking to you and your deputy even though I did my best to avoid this for me new way of communication.

I needed help in order to organize and justify rare jet continuously unfairly untruths and mystically veiled emails which I was getting from your side. And I also needed to get the justice on move. Someone had to help me in this battle and to support me to bring the reason and the things to the harmony, not theoretically but pragmatically and practically, not minimalistic but maximalistic.

I am surely not the best expert in many fields but I am in possesion of an great recognition which I have gained on the path and this is that reality is what true is. But, even if I believe that this my recognition is great, in this case it was just a minimalistic attitude and without great effort, knowledge, experience, proffesionality and gentlemenhood of the assessors and the whole constitution of the tenant assosiation it would bring me nowhere. Your mistically veiled games were even fo me who already long time ago recognized what can bring good to the people, too much.

 

The communication between us was very playful all those years in which I was your tenant. The tenant association and me had to wait for weeks and months for your or the  answers from the actual land lord. Your or the answers from the actual land lord were quite often different, stuffed with ineffective informations and statements. As an adult I had to play a hide-and-seek which is not my way of communication with people at all. The enigmatic brain-treaser I had to be occupied with took naturally loads of time and different kind of energies away.

 

The correspondence with you, lickely with the official land lord, I carried about from the begginig to the end and I also have printed it. The correspondence is in the yellow map, lickely the one with the official land lord, as the cycle must be kept going.

The folder is very thick and the most of its volue make my letters written to you and the official land lord since August 2016. Some days ago, as the natural laws want it, I have opened the folder and one long letter which I wrote to you drew my attention particularly. Even thought it dates from the past i feel to send it again to you a bit shortened though. Since the past very often turnes to presence, these lines enable us to learn something new. We are all older and hence wiser.

 

Let us reread the letter I sent to you in the epicenter of my non enviable situation at all and which I have never got an answer from you on. I have fairly appropriated the leter according to the present moment and place as well as have corrected some of the grammatical mistakes. I will use the quatation marks anyway.

 

“Cologne, Germany, 04.11.2016

 A very good day to you Mr, Rotthaus.

 Honored, I do not feel at all.

 By your last meeting, as you came into the room which I am renting, you said that you haven’t been in the room since the end of 2014.

Well intentioned I told you that it is a pitty and that you have missed a lot.

You answered that you have missed nothing, The word nothing was emphasized.

 Yes, Mr, Rotthaus, you did.

You have missed to read the website I wrote from a pure life experience which the same time represents my teachings as well as the space which you have rented to me. You have also missed to infomr your self you is staying in frnt of you and what she is really doing in the room which is in your property.

I am consntly reading ybout your vacations, flying and landing which I do not care about at all.

Obviously there is a huge misunderstanding between you/the official lady landlord and me.

Let me therefore to intdoduce briefly myself to you and the official landlord, as well as to tell you what I feel and think about you and your deeds.

 I come from a Serbian family that taught me not to deceive, not to steal, not to lie, to always speak from the heart and to fight for justice. I at age 19 I/we (I am a twin) left without mother and since that time I have been living in differenet countires with people of different nations, races and skin color. Since then I have been fighting for justice and against deception and manipulation of people.

 In Lindenthal (a part of the city of Cologne where the school was situated) I did not come to cause emotional, spiritual, mental, physical, financial or any other kind of damage to anyone, but to take care of human health and well-being, as well as to share my vast experience, my knowledge and my skills with others.

I’m educated not to make the difference between people, unfortunately you do it. There is a huge gap between you and me.

 You rented me a space with a great deal of damage from previous floods. As a landlord you do not have to mention it to a future tenant.

An honourable man would not allow this to himself, it is clear to every soul in the world.

 I will mention to you a couple of situations that have led me to believe neither you nor the official landlord you anymore,  and why you are not going to repeat the sentence “No, I did not say” once again.

These are at the same time short stories which are mirroring the whole society.

 

BEFORE RENTING A SPACE

 At our first meeting I have told you very honestly that by that time I have been renting some unfortunately unhealthy spaces for my classes and I have asked you if there is any moisture in a room and you have told me “No, absolutely not!”.

 I remember very well the way you were looking.

Time has told why you were looking in the direction you were looking back then.

 

AS THE MOISTURE IN THE WALL OCCURED

 … With my best conscience I immediately have informed you about it.

A honest and professional technician came to check the room and his opinion and suggestions about the room and the damage he told to us both, to you and to me.

 

OUR TELEPHONE DISCUSSION AND A COUPLE OF YUR PROPOSALS

 In or telephone conversation you suggested to me to simply paint the wall and to continue classes.

Hats off to you, Mr. Rotthaus!

One has to be really born for such a thing.

 In September I wrote you a email saying that I still did not paid the rent asking you to contact me as soon as possible, on order to discuss the issue. Your response were that you are on vacation.

 During our telephone conversation you were very excited and noticed with a very excited voice:

“Mrs. Holzem you can’t simply just not to pay the rent!”

 I wanted to clarify it but you were on vacation.

 Your next suggestion was to lock the moist room. As you may have noticed during the call I didn’t understnad you well asking you twice what do you really mean by that.

You meant exactly that, to separate the room from the eyes of the students an mine, therewith to separate the reality. Simply to hide the reality. And thereby to continiue to pay the full rent?

Hats off!

 When I told you that you knew that the wall was moisture before you renting me a space, you told me:

“Yes Mrs, Holzem, but have rented the space.” With the emphasis on the R.

Your smile one could feel over the phone.

 Yes Mr. Rotthaus I have rented the space because you haven’t told me that the space has water damaged and that it was not well repaired. With the epmhasis on the R. I f you have told me that I wold not rent the space.

 

YOUR IGNORING MY LETTER

 As a child of a nurse (my mother spent the most of her altruistic working career on the pulmonology department at the hospital) it is very well know to me that moist walls release mold spores which are NOT visible and extremely harmful to human health (for this one does not need to be neither a medical doctor nor a child of a nurse, this is what every child learns in school).

My letter, which was personaly delivered to your family members, you ignored.

Instead you are regularly informing me about your vacations.

Hats off Mr. Rotthaus!

 

AT THE END OF OUR LAST MEETING

 … you have said that you will have a look where the moisture in the wall comes from.

 Certainly, one needs to have neither a stunning intelligence nor an academic grade in order to understand that water (the rain) flows into the pipe which is placed on the wall of the house, from there into the earth and from the earth back to the bad isolated wall in the room in the space where my school is situated.

Your shaky hands were personally held the electronic mositure analyzer which in some places on the wall were showing the maximal moisture of a 100 digits, just right below the ground indeed.

I was not the only witness of this.

 You have not been almost two years in the room.

Me and the students are the only on ewho know the space very well sonce the end of 2014.

 ***

 Unfortunately neither you nor the official landlord I believe a word and deed more. It seems that a vacation is much mor eimportant than human dignity and health.

 You do not stop putting blame on me for everything what is going on in the room and thereby you don’t even know do I and how I am paying the electricity I spent in the room.. About human pores, capillaries and tissues as well about those of the walls you know nothing about.

All you care about is a full rent.

 For you, not only me is a fraud but, as I am hearing it from you, all people are bad and they have no idea.

Knowledge comes from an experienced heart, Mr. Rotthaus.

 You are writing to me and informing me where you are lending to and where you are going to vacation.

And me I am still paying to you a afull rent for a space which is a complete ruin because you are not allow me to reduce the rent.

 Winter is coming. Without a dehumidifer teh bud will spread rapidly though space and thus infect us all, which is clear to every school child. Already now, in a time when I am teaching and when the dehumidifer is off (because of the big noise it produces) the humidity is 75-80 digits.

Would you send your child to my class in this room?

About the values of air humidity allowed in the room where human beings are breathing (even in the basement you have rented to me) now I will not write because it is very easy to get to those informations.

Everything is written.

And everything has own time, Mr. Rotthaus.

 Mr, Rotthaus I don’t need to know where you and your family are traveling, fly and land, all I need is a complete concrete interpersonal communication fully respectfully.

 Thank you very much for taking a couple of minutes our precious tike for reading this semi-public letter from an ordinary tenant.

 

This is my fight, Mr. Rotthaus.

Even though your behavior shows that there are Untermenschen, believe me, there are not.

 Thank you for reminding me that I should fight.

So feels and sounds a letter written from my side and never answered from your side.

The unhelathy climate in the room remained with no change, as well as my feelings and worries.

Your words, decisions and deeds were leaving me without a word, almost paralyzed.

And you, what have you done since I have written this letter to you, long ago 2016?

You were continuously not having time, even when you have dedicated a little time to the sick wall, nobody knew anything, even the electronic moisture analyzers were corrupted.

From 2016 on you were continiued to blame me for everything what was going on in the room. Your fantasy was indeed not so endless as thes of the official lady landlord, still they were very exhausting for me.

I had to continiously and down-to-erath asking you to talk the truth to me and to respect all people. It was very hard for me to let you know that I can not appear in the room in the moment you just landed in Colognen or that you can not enter the room as you wish especiall not when the students are already in the room.

On the contrary, I have continiously takijg care of the space you have rented to me and ordinarly paying the rent.. Everythnign what I was written to you in a long letter, I continiued to do.

I also took care about the server of your company situated in the space I rented, I even once steped on the screw left behind the techician who was repairing it, and who came into the space I was renting without my knowledge.

Our only contacts were: the improvised door that shared the office of your company from the space of my school, a huge mess and a rent which I was paying regularly.

There was a very messy and exhausted confusion because your words, deeds, notes and ideas were not harmonized with those of the official landlord.

It was no longer clear who owns what, and who and what really wants from me.

And why.

It’s a long story.

You were playing and manipulating with my good will, my worries, my condition. An dyou were manipulating a lot in general.

Therewith you hurt my feelings as well.

Luckily I have the skills which expand my courage, my mental and the capacity of my heart with every new experience and challenge regardless on the linguistically language.

As I told you very honestly, I adrift a pure life without any protection from  a quite early age and since then I have been traveling from place to place living with very different people. With this I wanted to tell you that there is no human fraud that which I have not faced in my life.

 

May 2017.

After several requests from the tenant association you have received a termination without notice for the third time.

And this time it really happened.

The handover should be on 31.05.2017 until 16 o’clock.

Neither you nor the offical landlord has appeared at this by the juristical determined meeting.

I left your room at that day and sent the keys of your property to you by mail.

Our lease got a new adjective: former.

But you still had no desire to pay me back the deposit and other payments.

 

Middle of July 2017.

A new chapter begins.

After I have done a couple of afterwards corrections in the room tidy and on time asked from you and the official landlord respectively, you were still not willing to pay the caution you got from me back. About the other payment you shoul pay back were jet no words.

 

July/August 2017.

You are still not willing to pay the rent deposit back. Other payments were not even the topic.

And there begins a new chapter.

You have started to bargain with me and tenant association respectively.

 

Year 2018.

All possible companies and experienced technicians confirm verbally as well as written that the wall in the basement I have rented from you for my yoga school should not be disassemble, as you did it ten years ago, and that the cause of the enormous humidity of the wall, therewith the air humidity, was, of course, not the breathing of my and my students, but the reason for all this is a huge mistake in the construction of the building. It is about your own property and for all decisions regarding the space are your own.

Hence, the communication between me and tenant association respectively, and you, regarding the issue in the room has last for very long:

from the middle of 2016 until a few weeks ago when, in the name of my upbringing, serenity, creativity, creation and exhaustion and in the name of the pervasive beauty I decided not to undertake the lawsuit against you and your represantative respectively and to leave to you what belongs to me.

Besides, the lawsuit might cost me much more and take much longer time. My decision has brought the issue to an end, one way or another.

You don’t need to bargain anymore.

And you also don’t have a motive to be a person which you turned to be in the past years.

And I am very happy that we have this story behind us.

You are part of my experience, knowledge and life, oh, là, là, what a life! I have learned a lot from you and I am forever grateful to you for giving me a lesson.

At this pont I would also like to thank you with all my heart for paying me the rent deposit and one part of other amounts which I paid to you a few years ago. The rest, I decided, you can keep.

I leave you what belongs to me.

Let bygones be bygones.

 

Jet I feel free and freed, in the name of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in my name as well as in the name of the 60.000 members of Cologne’s tenant association, in the name of millions of members of tenant association throughout Germany, in the name of all tenants who are not able to pay the membership of the tenant association and in the name of humanity to ask you a few questions.

 

If you take from us what belongs to us, Mr. Rotthaus, what strategies, patterns and methods should we undertake in order to stay healthy in every level of our human lives? And therewith to lead a honoured and honest human life?

If you are renting to me a room fully aware of its unhealthy conditions how can I teach people how to understand, feel and take care for their bodies and precious breath if around us are flying living mold spores?

If you take the money what belongs to me how can I rent and pay a  space in which I can teach people to relax from the enormous daily tasks and let go?

To talk to them about the universall principles or how import is to have an clear conscience.

Hence, to share what I live and love.

An ancillary business is, traditionally, not in my interests. In earning without any effort I am traditionally not good either.

In speculations I am very bad, in the ability to make the difference between fog and light on the other hand very good.

How should I remain truthful to my inherited skills to help poor and poorer people if you keep what is mine?

Why do we have to fight, in a civilized world, to get what belongs to us?

 

Why do you keep what belongs to us?

 

How should 7.6 Billion humans on Earth live in harmony, as everything is connected and nothing is separated?

Mr. Rotthaus what the sentence Human Dignity Is Invioable means?

Which kind of life we have right of if you are talking what belongs to us and if you are behaving to us as you do?

To repeat once again my feelings, words and intentions which since ever were, are and will always stay faithful and steady part of my life attitude and my upbringing:

also with this letter I do not want to bring any damage either emotional, spirititual, physical, finansial or any other damage, either to you or any other human being.

 

I am certainly waiting curiously for your public, direct and for all kind of peopel understandable answers.

 

Best regards,

Lika Holzem

Dear People,

The diary did not get any special page with surprising news. But here are a few events that happened in the meantime.

In November 2017 the landlords / owners of the space in which the Hatha Yoga School YOGAJAGAT was situated got the last letter from the tenants’ association.
For one reason or another the letter was not sent.

On January 9, 2018 the letter was sent again.

In the letter the tenant association asks the landlord / owner to pay back the deposit (received the end of 2014), the overpaid (undiminished) rent for four months (about the reduced rent for the remaining months the landlords have never complained) and to provide statements on the heating prepayments I have made.

(The inadequate heating, according to landlords, should cause the enormous humidity in the room as it is written by the landlords in several letters. It was also mentioned to me that I should get the overpayment back.)

The deadline, according to the very simple time calculator, was the end of January 2018.

On the 4th of February, the tenants’ association received an email from the landlords in which they say that they will reply to the letter by 12th February.

Since then they have not contacted neither the tenant’s association nor me, the former tenant.

I once again prevented the judicial process and asked the tenants’ association to send one more, the last letter to the couple and to ask the landlord / owner once last time kindly to give me back what it belongs to me.

I will keep you up to date.

Stay healthy and enjoy today’s full moon and the time afterwards.
Warm regards,
Lika.

Hello good people,

Since the last occurrence related to the destiny of the school, the Diary Of Deeds got only one new page in late July though.
The reason why I did not report about the further graceless and unpleasant matters earlier is that the past months were simply bringing me very nice experiences which I consciously did not want to disturb with the cold ones.
Now I chose to come back to this issue again.

The owners of the space of our former school at the Franz Strasse 75 in Cologne contacted me on July 15Th demanding from me seven things giving me a deadline until August 5Th.

Some of those points like
– to equate the tiny colour differences on the wall where the wall lamps were located and behind the radiators
– to equate the tiny scratches on the window frame
– to remove the sticker with the name YOGAJAGAT from the mailbox
– to remove the tiniest spots on the plastic parts in the room left behind by the Velcro, I did it on time.
The keys from the school, as it shows in previous posts, were given back to the owners several months ago.
On the day of reparation I borrowed the keys rejecting the suggestion to keep them for one more day in order to “correct the defects which over the night eventually could have gotten worse” as I was perfectly sure back then and now that behind me and my deeds I did not leave a single defect.

A demand to paint the complete school in white was rejected by the tenant’s association based on the German law as well other demands.

The wall that was painted violet by me, which according to the owners’s consciousness also caused the extremely high humidity in the walls, was mentioned among points as well. It says that the violet wall is a defect indeed but that they accept it, while they are waiting for it to be repaired on their behalf.
(Please read this sentence twice or more, especially if you are a lawyer or if you are interested in the developing of the entire “case”).
In one part of our former school between our space and the rest of the basement (which was/is an office) instead of the door there was only an improvised closing (see pictures in previous posts). On my visiting the room on that day, this part was adapted for the owners’s needs or other purposes and the real door was brought back:

Lindenthal, 04.08.2017

The owners did not contact me since that day.

One important notice more: up to this moment I have never received a reminder, request or warning against payment for not paid rent since the termination without notice of the hire contract set by tenant’s association, neither verbally nor written.

The owners are still not willing to give back the deposit I paid at the end of 2014 as well as other differences in paying what I was regularly did until the last day of my running the school.

Have a great and creative time. 🙂

Very warm regards,
Lika

All dear people of good will,

here the further experience with the almost 10 months existing situation, the new events regarding the immediate terminated room of your Hatha Yoga school as well as about the school in general.
To my regret, an honest and open interpersonal communication between the owners (landlords) and myself as a yoga teacher and author of this entire website is not possible. Everything you can see and read on this site are the true facts. These can be helpful not only to all of us who want to learn more about the structures and forms of interpersonal relations and to be inspired in order to become a more satisfied human being, but also to the owner’s lawyer.

In their last letter sent to the tenants’ association, the owners (following the advice of the lawyer I guess) have said that they do not want to accept my rental reduction from mid-August to early December. The last six months from December until Mai they have not complained about the rent reduction indeed.

Our school until August 2016:

Our school from August 2016 on (see more images under this text):

KEY HANDOVER

The owners have unfortunately no longer answered and on May 31 they have not appeared and I could not hand over the keys to the deadline set by the tenant’s society.
Before I have sent the keys by mail, four witnesses viewed the room and documented its condition. Also the dispatch of the keys was documented by a few witnesses.
Yesterday, June 6, the keys of the YOGAJAGAT school were successfully delivered and processed to the owner.

DSC02264

In the eyes of the owners (landlords) I am still to blame because I have not heated the room enough and so I caused the damage. Remember, it is not a private apartment that I rented for myself but an open yoga school where the students have practiced breathing techniques and yogic postures without having to freeze or faint because of overheated room climate.
The room on the day I left it:

The garden which I personally took care of full of joy and love to the plants and Life in general (therefore the name Jagat) from the first to the last day and our squirrel 🙂:

Once-twice times a year indeed over the night I have found the garden just like it looks in the pictures below. The owner appears, cuts the plants, leaves the cut plants lie, and disappears. Because I wanted to welcome the students in a nice atmosphere (both outer and inner) the rest of the work has always been done by myself. However, I am paying the gardening since the first day of my presence in this house.

All lovely people,

I will keep you regularly informed about the further events and development of this for me new kind of interpersonal communication.

Until then remain happy, lead a fulfilling life and enjoy the full moon right now and its mysterious effect 🙂

Nothing is more valuable than inner peace which can be won only when the feelings, thoughts and deeds are united. This is called yoga.

Your friend and teacher,
Lika

Dear students and friends,

A lot of events preceded with the space of the Hatha Yoga School Yogajagat in Lindenthal, Cologne in the past nine-ten months (please read more in the text of May 04 on this page) and as a result of this series of events the school has been closed on Thursday 11th May.

A FEW WORDS MORE ABOUT THESE EVENTS AND EXPERIENCE

Hatha yoga, yoga philosophy and yoga psychology indeed do not speak and teach about the humidity of the walls, but since everything is linked (see: http: // Yogajagat.com/eight-folds-of-yoga-patanjali-yoga-psychology/) and since it is not about the private flat but the public school, on this page I will keep you informed about the current state of the space of the school.
What someone gets is taken by another.

The space in which I run the Hatha Yoga School is a basement whose walls by the owner were plastered ten years ago what was not the right path for the pores and capillaries of the walls and theirs breathing. Next to this defect in the construction there are still some more that have not yet been found (not even by the graduated architect). The space, as I have been said in my previous text on this website already, had enormous water damage which was not mentioned to me while signing the contract for the space up.
The space is very much dependent on the weather and rain (and in Cologne it rains very often) which increases the humidity in the walls (thereby, of course, also the humidity of the space, it is not any kind of mysticism but science) fast and enormous, especially during hot summer days.

In the primary school we all have learned about condensation but for those who want to properly understand the facts about moisture here is a small reminder (text in German):
http://www.cwaller.de/klimaeinfuehrung.htm
http://www.cwaller.de/deutsch.htm?teil5_6_gebaeudeklima.htm~information

The pictures show the walls today, in Cologne the weather is very warm (if you read the previous text, you will understand the connection). The lower pointer of the little measurement tool, which has been in the room since I have rented it, shows the humidity in the room.

Such a room can be used to store dill pickles or mushrooms or, as originally was used, as a laundry room, but the human lungs should not breathe the air in this space.

Despite all said and written reports of the professionals, my honesty and pure facts, the owners have already twice stopped the immediate termination of this space since January.
On the May 31, I will hand over the keys of this room to its owner, since the tenant’s association which has supported me almost all the time, has once again set an immediate termination to the owners (landlords).
For the owners the room is still perfectly in order and I am still to blame because I did not “aired and heated the room properly”. The heating works perfectly in this space and, remember, it is a public school not a private flat. Even the plaster which the painter used some weeks ago is in their eyes doubtful, as they have recently spoken.

A FEW WORDS MORE ABOUT YOGA AND OUR PRACTICE

It is of course very sad for many of us not to have the regular practice of all that is good for us all. But also such experiences which we in this unpleasant case have gained are part of life, too. However there is no reason to poison our mind with hatred, greed, ignorance, or aggression. My entire website, my teaching and yoga teach exactly the opposite.
Always have an open mind.

Before you get angry about the actions of the other think about the fact that there are people who can recognize what the other feels and think but it is very difficult or very often impossible for this people to perceive the feelings and thoughts of the other and to have a compassion. Such people have a limited ability to perceive their own feelings either and so the whole life remains only on the surface. The whole thing does not happen somewhere out there but under the scalp and the skull, in the extremely compex organ called brain, in one of its layer called the cerebral cortex, in one of its part called the gray substance and in one of its well hidden part which is by the expert called anterior insula. This is why there is no reason to be annoyed. This phenomenon, the change in the human brain and human beings who have lost their relationship to reality is a issue of other science.

But one can’t be angry at Anterior Insula.

Schadenfreude, making a mockery and laughing at others are always the echo of the extremely unstable self-esteem and inner immaturity and insecurity.

The doctrine of yoga says that you can not change anyone except yourself. Therefore, always try to cultivate the most beautiful qualities in you and to be a good man. A proper practice of yogic techniques, psychology and philosophy changes the gray matter in our brain and makes our unconscious emotional processes conscious what leads to the evolution of the soul.

Nobody can take the goodness from us away.
Human dignity is inviolable. At least says the first paragraph of the German Constitution.

Many thanks to all of you dear people for your warm words and all the little things that make life.

See you soon 🙂
Your teacher and friend,
Lika.


May 5, 2017

My dearest students and friends,

the YOGAJAGAT school will no longer exist as of May 11. 2017.

Here is the reason why.

Full of trust and joy by the end of 2014 I have been signed the contract for the space of my Hatha Yoga School. Unfortunately, I have been not told that the space had great water damage.

Wanted to set a part of the room for the reflexology in which I was trained in Thailand, I discovered enormous moisture in the walls.
By the end of 2016 my enormous responsibility on human lungs, the heart and the nervous system was ignored. Even if it was quite clear that water damage has left its traices, in the eyes of my landlords I was fault because I don’t ventilate and heat the space, and I was also fault that I used the “thick wall paint”.
I had no legal expenses insurance because I did not come into this space to bring any emotional, mental, soul or financial harm to any human being but to help people to find the most precious inner peace and to expand the capacity of their lungs, heart power, life energy, the whole body, the nervous system and consciousness. I also never thought that I have to “protect” myself from any human being. Neither my family nor I had anything to do with the law (even if I personally am a natural born fighter for justice, even if the right in our society is not always justice).
Jet at the end of 2016 I had to become a member of the tenants’ association what moved my landlords to perceive me and the existing problem.

In the last eight-nine months I have experienced many inconveniences and it was not always easy to teach with such a psychophysical background.
I could not afford a single day off because I had to empty the dehumidifier every single day. I have done everything to protect my students which I infinitely respect keeping the room which it turned out is not only moisture but has a wast construction defects as healthy as it was possible. I have patiently waiting for months that human health and my enormous responsibility to be taken seriously. Despite reports and very good knowledge that the cellar in which we breathe is not in order, the owners of the interior plaster and the color have nevertheless decided to close the damp wall.
Chronologically it looks like this:

Franz Strasse, Köln, YOGAJAGAT Hatha Yoga Schule

August 2016

Februar-2017

Februar 2017

April-2017-

Ende April 2017

Lindenthal, Köln, Hatha Yoga Schule YOGAJAGAT

Anfang Mai 2017

As someone who by the profession of his mother “grew up” in the lung department of a hospital, and who has a vast experience and knowledge of breathing and breathing techniques as well as other sciences, I affirm that the damp room is unhealthy for breathing and other yogic techniques and generally for the entire human health.
My upbringing, my education, my conscience, the consequences of my own practice and my personal philosophy do not allow me to continue to teach in this space.

For all those who are on an endless and rather exhausting search for a room, who ask me for a sub-renting of this room, please do not ask, because if I would underbid this space, I would be a criminal. This is not my upbringing. Both my parents would turn in the grave. Not nice.

At this moment I am still forced to pay the rent for this space and therefore I am not able to rent a second, more healthy space for our classes.

However, I will inform you on this website in time if the lessons take place elsewhere and when.
Until then, dearest students and friends,
…remain faithful to your breath and all the other traditional yogic techniques we have learned and practiced together,
…enjoy the reading of the texts I am writing on my both websites on the topic which I have been thinking and studying about since my childhood and it is the Homo Sapiens and the fascinating less than 2% different genes from his evolutionary ancestor,
…and do not forget to celebrate life because more than life we do not have 🙂

Thank you very much, all my dear students for your support and patience in all the last months.
With the great respect and greatest honesty,
Your friend and teacher,
Lika.
