Other than our group, Maya Bell has been inundated with Rainbow people. Compared with the Zapatistas, who are extremely careful about whom they share information with, the so-called “Mayan healers” who work with the Rainbow people (for a fee) are apparently indiscriminate about the people with whom they share their drugs and “sacred knowledge.” Despite the supposed "War on Drugs" that is causing so much pain for the people of Mexico, there are no police checking these young international folks for drugs. But then, the Mexican government feels no threat from a bunch of hippies ... and these prideful, mostly young, people feel they are above politics. Apparently, they feel the world will improve (in some undefinable way) if they can just have a good trip. Most of those with whom I've spoken haven't even heard of the Zapatistas. But then, as the Zapatistas say, they want "a world in which many worlds fit." I guess that includes the Rainbow kids, too.
The next time I may be able to write will be December 22. I fully expect at that time to be able to confirm that the world did not end. Happy New Era, everyone.
