I don’t have all the answers. Nobody does. But I do know one thing: denial is a luxury we, as a species, cannot afford. Ignoring the truth does not alter that truth, it simply means that when that truth comes home, we are more likely to be overwhelmed by it.
I enjoy meeting people of a similar mindset. I welcome their views and opinions and am always open to learning from them. Change starts with a few people who believe things don’t have to stay the way they are. All across the world, people are coming together, talking, and taking what they’ve learned back to their own communities. I’m working on a series of seminars to help achieve this. We cannot rely on governments to resolve the many problems facing our species and our planet. We must do it. Not by violent revolution but by quiet, thoughtful individual actions, which take the long view. There are many sources available to us: the Hopi, the Greek philosophers to name but two. What we are experiencing today is not new, it’s just more widespread and more immediate.
Since I moved to Belize, Central America, four years ago, I’ve been living at The Red Hut Inn with my friends, Julia and Lewis Leiva. During that time, I’ve enjoyed many, many hours of lively conversation with their guests, while consuming a fine meal, prepared by Lewis and washed down with several bottles of Belikin, the local beer.
Apart from the home from home atmosphere of the hotel, Belize has a great deal to offer: rainforests, wildlife, corral reefs, scuba diving, fishing, many well presented Maya ruins, cave tubing, a vibrant, mixed culture and an easy going lifestyle. I’d welcome the opportunity to show you around.
So, if you’re considering a vacation to Central America, why not give Belize a try? I’d love to meet with you!
