The biggest realization for DH and I in Belie was how we had always been taught that the Mayans and other native cultures in what we call the Americas were primitive. We spent our week living with decendants of Mayans from Guatamala who moved to Belize during the revolutions and wars in the last century. The technology and knowledge that their ancestors had ASTOUNDED us. It just seems like here we are taught that the Greeks invented everything and that while the conquistadors were not nice people, that life wouldn't have moved on without them... and here we meet people who are decendants of a culture that was every bit as advanced (or more so) than the Greeks... it makes you question everything (you think) you know.
The other thought that I have is that over the past 5-6 years I have seen a pattern in my behaviors... almost a winding down, if it can be called that... maybe it is a natural progression and is normal as I move through life's phases, but I see myself being less attached to material things. Getting affairs in order (living nearly debt free), focusing on the world around me and living more naturally with less... getting my head together spirtually and releasing a lot of the negativity that I had when I was younger. Maybe it is my body's way of preparing for what is to come? A time when we will live with less materially, but have so much more spiritually and communally?
Jsut my random thoughts! I really do not know much about astroglogy or numerology, so I cannot add much there. I can tell you that Belize is a really life-changing place to visit. If you are interested PM me and I can let you know how we "did" it. It isn't veyr expensive at all and we plan to take the girls in a few years when they will be old enough to understand.
