TOJERO`s ETHICAL VALUES
We respect all beings on earth – humans, animals, plants, water and air.
The essence of being human subsists in caring for each other.
We are humans through other humans.
We especially welcome and respect the stranger.
SHARING OUR VALUES WITH OTHERS
Sharing our values and goods with others is our expression of love: We do not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value. On the contrary: We show respect and honor towards our guests and neighbors, we give them the best treatment ever, the best food and best bed. We give a portion of our good fortune to others and donate in social responsibility projects..
Our community is created by the people, for the people. We believe in a culture of independence, free from corporate logos, commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation.
RESPECT OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM
We intend to contribute to a society where the freedom to think, act and feel determines the social organisation. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can develop the cultural values of our community. The acceptance and practice of our values is an individual and voluntary act, we refuse any dogmatic indoctrination. Never disrespect other people’s religious beliefs. Do not impose your religious belief on others.
COMMUNITY CULTURE BASED ON SELF-RELIANCE
We encourage the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources. Be true to yourself. Care and encourage yourself first then do the same for others. Do not let other people do that for you. It is no one else’s road but yours. They can walk with you but they will never walk for you. We aim to contribute to a mentality that takes us away from isolation, separation, of oversaturation of media and towards a culture that
ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL IN THE COMMUNITY
We believe that transforma]ve change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through deep personal partcipa]on. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. Meet people and free yourself from egoic condi]oning: Let the other grow by giving the space they need to flourish and spread the love in their hearts.
ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY
We want to create an environmentally conscious community where many coexis]ng individuals generate solu]ons which can be used in larger contexts. We clean up aOer ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave our surroundings in a beeer state than when we found them. Show respect towards other people’s privacy and personal space. It is forbidden to have contact with the personal belongings of other people.
FACILITATE ART CREATION TO ENCOURAGE GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS
The human being is a creative being, capable of producing or feeling art thus connecting with a spiritual dimension. We strive to produce, promote and protect works of art in order to communicate new models fundamental to an evolving global consciousness.
We make conscious decisions regarding our being and actions. We assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to our members. We assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
We are part of an interconnected network of life in the universe. Nature does not func]on for us, we are part of nature. It is our inten]on to create a collec]ve experience that will awaken us to the feeling that we are in all things, and all things are in us.
Peace is a basic human right for all living beings. Forgive people’s mistakes since all persons make mistakes. Be positive. Practise thoughts of optimism because bad thoughts lead to illnesses of the body, mind and spirit. “There can be no justice without peace and there can be no peace without justice.”
We want to create an experience that provides the tools to transcend social and cultural conditioning. We want to co – create ideas for new models of societies based on mutual respect for mind, body, soul, and multiple forms of life. The elevation of our collective consciousness is key.
