Instituto Cervantes Benelux & United Kingdom De Wellenkamp
1530 NL 6545 NM NIJMEGEN The Netherlands10 January 1997: ASTROLOGY
Dear Diana, How to get
the bridge and how to become the partner and
the invisible manager were the main themes of a conference I assisted
on de Baak on the 13th of November
last year, the day Het
Stadhouderlijk Hof wrote your invitation
& Taylor sent their leaflet. The
bridge between you and me is that we share the same hobby: astrology.
Every day I read the horoscope of Cancer and Scorpio
in De Telegraaf and nearly every day in the Daily Mirror. This way
I can see what you are doing and where you are thinking about.
In my horoscope I read the reactions on my actions, the feedback.
This way the horoscope is a magnificent means of communication. Scorpio
of 8-1-97 said: You're
ultra pushy this Wednesday in what you say and do, but some people
don't like pressure and you could lose their support and your
advantage. If you compromise them or box them in. You might even
get a taste of your own medicine with an official demand. I consider this as a perfect feedback on my
former letters and my decision to an engagement. ENGAGEMENT
means to me commitment
and dedication. Once I had a similar
engagement with my colleague Elizabeth.
Our mutual commitment
and trust in each other has worked out
remarkably well. After our professional separation I worked out
a case study in which I gave her the name Angela Vincente, the
winning angel. Now she is one of the most powerful women in the
Netherlands. I trust in a good communication between both of you.
In this sense I think I have a great power. In the period 1992-1993
I dedicated my attention to a young Swiss woman whom I met in
Salamanca in May
1992. She lived in Zürich. At that time Zürich had
a great drug addict problem. I declared myself completely against
drugs and gradually the problem disappeared. A few time later
I declared my personal support to Mr
José María Aznar. Now
Mr Aznar is the Prime
Minister of Spain. The 19th of September
I wrote my first State of the
Union to our Prime Minister. Enclosed I present the English
translation. The 6th
of November I deposited my policy plan
at the Permanent Dutch
Representation in the European Commission in
Kok and President
Chirac of France finally are on speaking terms. Mr Kok
uses the same Conqueror
envelope as I do.
The 8th of August I stood
a while before the Throne
of England in BUCKINGHAM
PALACE and I knew I had only one thing to do: getting William on that throne. I read the result in The Sun of last Tuesday:
King Charles is dead.....
long live King William. That must be
a very emotional event to you. In my vision British Monarchy will
not be dead. But the House
of Windsor will make place for the House of Spencer.
I am fully aware of your difficult position at this moment. Last
Tuesday I went to the sauna in Oss, where you have a lot of friends
who care about you and now I think about your horoscope of that
day: A trio of assertive
planets set their cap at you. Be aware of how your relationship
with another is faring. It doesn't matter on what level your partnership
exists, you must be aware of its weaknesses and plug any gaps,
or under pressure it is likely to crack.
Without any doubt the astrologer is speaking about the purple cap
with the signal 492
that you bought at the Donna Karan Store
in New York.
In the sauna the key number D220 was
given to me. In combination we have D220492: Diana 22 of
April 1992, the commitment of my former
invisible manager. The beginning of a long invisible partnership
that is going to be visible now. From my point of view I must
have been your invisible manager as well for a long time, represented
by Mr James Hewitt as my stand in in the Golden Triangle Operation
with the objective to release you from your difficult position
as described in my State of the
Union. I can explain this in a later stage. Mr Hewitt had the same
initials as I have. As your
partner I have my weaknesses indeed.
I have some problems with my health because I was poisoned
in May 1993 and I need money and specialists within the shortest
term to build up the
Cervantes organization and as a matter of fact I cannot do
everything alone. Cervantes can become
the biggest label in the world but I
need assistance and support. My workload is heavy. In order to
obtain support from Britain I wrote enclosed letter to the managing
direction of Francis & Taylor
in Basingstoke Hampshire. Another weakness is that I miss you when I look
at your photograph of last Sunday and I see the sadness in your
eyes. I will keep my promises however. I will support you to defend
British Monarchy as an
Institution, but I think Williams kingdom will have another
character. Something more Europe oriented
and I even foresee vaguely that he may become a future European Emperor
on a constitutional
basis. I already started a discussion
about the function of
nobility in our country and in my vision
nobility is not dead. I foresee a nobility
revival in Europe. The discussion
about this issue has started already on Dutch television. In the
year 2000 the former palace of Emperor Charles the Great
will have been rebuilt here in Nijmegen, capital of Europe in the year 800.
He was the greatest emperor of the Heyden Dynasty as far
as I can imagine.
As a matter of fact I have imperial
power as well in legal terms, but I will try to remain modest
because of the lack of money. So they call me Honest John, just like
Minister. Back to the present I have to state that I need
a form of fundraising to finance the initial costs of development.
My financial sources are running out. I am thinking of the creation
of a sort of Cervantes
Fund and I need an immediate solution
for my financial problem. The 22nd
of February I will assist the 8th Symposium Spanish in Education, Research
and Management at the University of Nijmegen.
Two days later I will talk with
Mr H. van der Pasch of the Transfer Point
of that university for the benefit of the operationalization of
the organization in the
Benelux. The financing of the Cervantes Fund
will be an issue on the agenda. I am also thinking about the foundation
of another fund. Having introduced already the idea of Golden
Heart Foundation at Taylor
& Francis I am now thinking about a Princess Diana Fund as a fundraising institute for charity purposes.
As a member of the International Lions Organization
I will discuss this issue with my friends. Today I decided to
send you a weekly report every monday by certified letter starting
the 20ieth of January and to stop my correspondence towards the Managing
Direction of de Baak without any objection that you discuss
my letters with them. You have got their telephone number. Enclosed
you find my confirmation of this decision. Of course I have no
objection when my letters will be read confidentially by your
staff. I will read the feedback in the horoscope. In case in addition
there might occur any inconvenience I will be at your disposition
and of any of your staff members. I hope to start my work in Britain
the first of April. I am opening an account at National
Westminster Bank in Folkestone and requested the registration of the trade name
Instituto Cervantes in Great Britain. Finally I like to end this letter
with a personal remark about your beautiful Galliano dress you
wore in New York. Having read some reactions about your robe I
can only say: It matches perfectly with photograph 17 I sent you
the 6th of January. I hope to have the occasion to admire that
creation in that atmosphere as soon as you will be ready for it.
With love, John Van der Heyden. Enclosed (amongst others): Translation
of my State of the Union of 19-09-96; Dates of the contact at NatWest in
Folkestone, Copy of the envelope of Taylor & Francis of 13.11.96.
Translation: The Prime Minister,
Drs W. Kok, Postbus 20061, 2500 EB 's-GRAVENHAGE.
State of the Union
Now that Her Royal Majesty pronounced
the policy plans of Your Government, the Instituto Cervantes has
established a permanent right of use of the trade name in the
Benelux, the clouds of smoke on the Tournooiveld have lifted,
the tribune on the Korte Voorhout did not break down, the heather
brooms entered for the last time our Royal Palace, purple is still
sitting steady in the saddle, our country finally can share amongst
the civilized countries and You started the 'wave' in our House
of Commons to me it is a great honour to present You herewith
my first State of the Union in order to start building the bridges.
Recently I sent You every information in connection with the development
of Instituto Cervantes and saved a special place for the so called Delta-network,
labelled by me as the Golden
Triangle. Within this network I made
choices on behalf of all parties which have devoted themselves
to let the fresh westerly wind entering in our country again in
order to be able to start to collaborate within a new European
collaboration in which social partners will be able to start to
work together with respect for each other. A sound collaboration
between the countries of the Benelux and the Kingdom of Spain
will be the main issue.
Within the framework of the European unification I invited the
future heads of state on the 31st
of July to accept a seat in the government of the Foundation
Cervantes Benelux. From the Prince
of Orange I received the message that regrettably he had not
the opportunity to honour my invitation, after which I requested
Prince Johan Friso to help me
to bring the launched rocket into the right course. From Prince
Filip of Belgium I received the best wishes for the success
of this initiative and from Don Felipe
de Bourbon and Greece I received the message that he is not
allowed to accept the invitation as long as the governmental function
has a permanent character. Prince
Johan Friso is orienting himself on
his future career at the moment. I will remain doing my best for
a personal involvement of our royal houses for the benefit of
my plans. The social basis therefore has been created now. The
respect of the existing parlamentary relations will be respected.
Democratical decision processes are indispensible for an active
participation of all positive powers that contain our society.
Some steering within the framework of a Strategical Perspective
towards the year 2000 is necessary in order to do justice to the
European identity of all participants as carefully as possible
and to control the frontiers of the European Union. The Queen's
speech of 17 September 1996 does not mention specifically in which
way the relationship between Dutch and Spanish speaking countries
can be improved. In addition to the policy plan of Instituto Cervantes Benelux and in connection with Your policy proposals I
herewith give some recommendations for development stages as a
The successfull policy of our State's
Secretary of Justice has to be continued in a wider context.
In the recent budget debates the term 'Bankrupt of the section
adult education' has fallen. Education and Entrepreneurship although
are essential conditions for the development of lasting collaboration
relationships with an individual responsibility. Instituto Cervantes will
not involve itself in internal conflicts of parties within this
working area. It is desirable that conflicts will be resolved
amongst themselves before parties can be admitted to further decision
processes. In this aspect every organization that can support
the policy of the Dutch
Government will be very welcome.
3. Foreign relationships
Benelux will do the utmost to optimalize
the relationship with Spanish speaking countries. Instituto Cervantes Benelux will promote the ministerial dialogue between the Netherlands
In order to produce a vital impulse to give a positive optimalization
of the relationship with the Spanish speaking countries of Latin
America Instituto Cervantes
will take an initiative to attract an ambassador with an international
radiation. Consultation with the Ministry
of Developing cooperation will be initiated.
5. Dialogue with
With the Instituto Cervantes in Alcalá
de Henares a dialogue will be opened in order to produce a
joint content to a strategical plan from a Spanish and Dutch
My claim on the State of the Netherlands as stated in my fax of
1996 to the Prime Minister is a rock-hard claim and completely
legitimate. It is not a matter of terror of figures, but of figures
to avoid terror. This claim will be maintained unimpaired. This
will also be the case with respect to the proposal for an arrangement.
After having received the amount a reputable financial economical
expert will be attracted in order to offer the policy a thorough
financial economical basis and a contribution to further economical
growth and improvement of the infrastructure of the European Union.
On the 10th of September I
assisted the meeting Spider
in the web, centipede?. As a result
of this meeting I determined the following policy assumptions.
We need a new infrastructure, a new nest of concepts. We need
to reduce complexity by implementing new management and educational
programs, pro-active partnership roles, with partners being capable
to do the same things. We need to know the responsibilities in
partnership, a process of rationalization to achieve new challenges.
Now we have to translate strategy into action. We have to put
our partnership in process, getting the actionplans into action.
It's my role in leadership to put ahead the vision into development
and to be aware that the first component to good leadership is
not to be negative by translating leadership-issues into actions.
We have to develop management skills in Dutch-Spanish intercultural
management. I'm aware of the necessity of efficiency, effectiveness
and innovations and the necessary culture-shock of top management.
The biggest problem anyhow is to get the bridge and to become
the partner. 'Change' is not determined by the changes of one
element. We are equal because of the fact that managers are able
to change because they are willing to do so, although business
managers are confronted with a lot of problems in their own workfield.
Not technology is the business, but the information is the business
and justice will be served continuing the process of 'cleaning
out the webs'. I like to finish with my personal password:
