Thanks, Nicole. I understand completely. And there are days that I don't believe in it either. I'm not naive. Why do I have hope, then?
1. The young people have a thin veil. I write for many of them and whenever I teach and look them in the eyes they understand so fast what I'm saying... So, I made it my task to explain and inspire. Plant seeds.
2. Since my own shift from caring but not knowing 'how', towards deep care, knowledge and wisdom, I see things happening to many people in my surroundings. 2012 was a strange year. The Mayas were the wise ones. But we didn't believe anything would happen. But now, in hindsight, I hear so many people saying it was the time of change for them. For me too. And for my partner Mike. We saw and we changed radically.
For all those people, I write. And I hope they find it in their hearts to have wise hope (hope with action). We'll see. At least I have tried...
