I went to celebrate 2 dear friends' birthdays yesterday at this gorgeous restaurant in Belize City, 501 Hub.
We had a great time. The staff was so friendly, the food was delicious, and we were the only diners in the whole, magical place.
How sustainable will that be for them, or any business?
Last year, approximately THE SAME NUMBER of people died from the flu...
...but they didn't take all of humanity -- and sanity -- with them.
It is neither considerate nor responsible to expect the world to literally suffocate themselves, while remaining holed up at home, growing deficient in sunshine, human touch, real eye contact, good bacteria, and the natural strengthening of your innate immune system.
BREATHING is the most basic and fundamental need for life.
We can go THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME without doing it, before literal death.
Yet the vast majority have bought into the most ridiculous idea that self-suffocation is noble, heroic, virtuous, and helpful to others?!
The real, true, great threat is a well-funded, long-planned, deceitful agenda.
You owe it to yourself, your brain (which REQUIRES oxygen to function properly), and your lungs (which are re-inhaling quite a lot of the WASTE GAS, carbon dioxide), to look into the inappropriateness of this protocol.
Those who have mandated it are despicable people unworthy of our trust.
We are fighting with each other over breathing, while a bigger-than-life agenda marches forward.
I hope no one lights a single firework or starts a single grill this Saturday, without listening to the Declaration of Independence first. Just 10 minutes. PLEASE.
Think about the past 3.5 months in the light of those words.
The evident, has become not very evident.
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
