An Attitude Change as Subtle as a Train Crash

I have been e-mailing with a friend on a regular basis. Our last e-mails fell into what is know as the “doom and gloom” of our times. We discussed economic and political issues regarding the Euro and its future, The European Community feasibility and changes needed, the American economy and the political situations, and similar topics. Our last e-mails brought us both to a space of little hope and much to worry about if we decided to.

Then, he sent me this e-mail that was forwarded to him by another friend.
I read the article following the link provided. It changed my perspectives of things as subtle as a train crash would! Here is a man that is doing something. He is making a change, yet he is practical, keeps things simple and gets on with them. What a different life attitude to the one I had when reading e-mails and thinking about the terrible world crisis we are facing. Instead of dwelling on what we all know is a bad economic situation, we should move on and get practical and active. We all have our own particular field in which we can do things happen and make a difference. We only need to learn the lesson and change our thoughts and intentions and purposes. We know this, the question to ask is probably a different one: Do we dare to?

Here is the article and the link to the full story. I hope you enjoy it and if needs be, learn the lesson to walk in the light and not to sit in the dark doom and gloom.

If everybody acted in a simple and human way, we'd all be saints.

- Don Sergio Castro -

Portrait of a Healer

"Some of his patients are sent to him by local hospitals, especially in hopeless cases; when, for example, amputation seems to be the only option. Sergio Castro is seen by many as the last hope. People come to him with gangrene, hoping that they will be able to keep their limbs, for he has achieved what some perceive as "miracles". Sergio is not a doctor; Sergio's somebody who really cares about people. And his clinic is actually not a clinic, but a museum of traditional indigenous costumes. Sergio has been working within the indigenous Mayan communities of Chiapas, the poorest and most deprived State of Mexico, for the past 40 years. Initially, his contribution was agricultural work, and helping to build water infrastructure before he began offering medical care. Like all true healers, Sergio didn't choose to become one. He was chosen, elected by the people who needed his help; and unlike many proclaimed healers, he's never asked a dime for his services." { read more }
