Back from New Orleans, Belize and Guatemala - Catching Up On News

Just back from a magical trip to New Orleans, Belize and Guatemala.

After a wonderfully fun Jazz Festival, I was blown away by the beauty and Mayan cultures of the Guatemalan highlands, especially.

I'll be catching up on the news over the next couple of weeks, with daily updates including a nice mix of my favorite new stories AND stories from the days that I was out of the office.

I'll also be blogging on some reflections from course of our travels, and reviewing a fantastically visionary book that I read -- David Korten's 'The Great Turning'. Good, and very timely, stuff.

More soon...

  1. Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

    Industrial Society is destroying necessary things [Animals, Trees, Air, Water and Land] for making unnecessary things [consumer goods].

    "Growth Rate" - "Economy Rate" - "GDP"

    These are figures of "Ecocide".
    These are figures of "crimes against Nature".
    These are figures of "destruction of Ecosystems".
    These are figures of "Insanity, Abnormality and Criminality".


    The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

    The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature [Animals, Trees, Air, Water and Land].

    Chief Seattle of the Indian Tribe had warned the destroyers of ecosystems way back in 1854 :

    Only after the last tree has been cut down,
    Only after the last river has been poisoned,
    Only after the last fish has been caught,
    Only then will you realize that you cannot eat money.
