Happy New Moon Loves,
I don’t know what the future holds, it is a mystery to us all right now. But we can surely do our best to try to stay in the present moment, to stay in gratitude, to stay in prayer.
I felt a little stuck writing you this week.
We decided last week to weather the storm from here in Mazunte, Mexico. It is just beginning to hit here and there are different speculations as to how hard, and if, and when. So, we’ve done the grocery shopping and are doing the social distancing and are battening down the hatches for the duration.
There are a million messages right now. Many beautiful and inspiring...
I appreciated something Nick Werber shared, that we are all the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of survivors. We wouldn’t be here otherwise. Our ancestors survived worse times than these.
Many of us have better tools than our grandparents had and they made it.
In Mexico, there is less news. We don’t know the exact number of cases that are near us, but the shops are closing and the restaurants are closing. In Mazunte, it's an economy built mostly around tourism and the tourists are lessening. It’s also an economy where most people can’t afford to stop working.
I don’t know how to help here. It’s ok right now, but after two months, three months, I don’t know. I’m not afraid for myself but I’m afraid for the poor of the world. Over and over getting the short end of the stick.
I don’t have answers. I’m not sure how to help right now, but I want to. I love you Mexico and I’m here to ride this out with you. I hope we are all stronger and kinder on the other side.
With love and gratitude and prayers for peace for all beings,
Lisa and Maha Rose
