This morning I received a link to Dmitroy Orlov ‘s blog [http://cluborlov.blogspot.com] announcing his new book – The Five Stages of Collapse.
The book is based on a previous presentation in 2008 http://www.resilience.org/stories/2008-11-11/five-stages-collapse
Please do not be dismayed by the word ‘collapse’. This is not a doom & gloom prediction of the world ending. It is about the world changing and possible solutions to surviving the changes.
You may recognize some of the suggested changes and solutions. I did.
My move to Costa Rica was a way to experience a cultural change that was compatible with my new fixed income. Once experienced, I was able to transfer my awareness to living a different life style in the USA. My new perspective now includes an expanded appreciation for the local community.
A change in cultural beliefs is an evloving process. It requires recognition of ‘cultural consenses’ and awakening from those that no longer serve us.
