Last night, I had a disturbing dream I want to share.
There was massive flooding, around 6 feet high in high parts of the land masses, meaning the lower lying areas were under water and the higher areas
(not sure how high, but I'd say 1,500 feet) were flooded with 6 feet or more of water.
The water was definitely salt ocean water. I remember over half of the population was dead or dying. There was no medical care at all. People were
turning on each other and people who were once caring individuals, were self-centered and would barely help anyone around them. We ate pre packaged
food, the type you would buy at a convenience store that was wrapped differently than what you buy at a market. I don't recall how we drank water.
It seemed as though the floods kept coming. Someone was in a make shift hospital bed and I left for a minute (others were around) and when I came
back, the individual was submerged under water and not breathing. I pulled the individual above the water, but I couldn't do CPR as higher ground was
50 yards away. I was making my way through the deep water carrying this individual and it seemed as though there was a spark of life still within him,
but I couldn't get the water out of his lungs or do CPR. Nobody would help me.
I kept hearing of family members who died or continued to die and the shock of it was gone, so this event was not necessarily new, maybe a few months
There was a cell phone I tried using and it seemed it was pointless as nobody had coverage.
I think the hardest, scariest thing was nobody was working together to help each other. I was thinking I would prefer to die than live with people
filled with hatred and with no survival skills or know-how to help themselves or others.
I woke up during the dream and told myself to remember it as it had a big impact on me. My take away in all of this is to make sure we all have a
unique set of survival skills (without electricity, without food in stores) and form communities that helps each other.
I think the most valuable gift we can bestow on our children, whether now young or adults is the ability to survive in this world without the
conveniences of the modern world. Aside from having family values, and a belief and appreciation in our Creator (I believe in all religions that
support peace and love) is the ability to survive in a world whether technologically advanced or without electricity and other modern conveniences.
Mexico is a great example. I'm in the USA, so Mexico is one of the only examples I have of what is considered a 3rd world nation, yet they work as a
strong knit community. There is no public assistance like Welfare, Unemployment, Food Stamps, etc. in Mexico. You are born and you will work, period.
They all contribute to their society. If you are an old woman, you make homemade tortillas or something else. If you are a young boy, then after
school, you help your fellow towns people.
I've traveled to many parts of Mexico and I know first hand they work together. It's not a society where it's based only on each individual, such
as the case in the USA. Example, we were eating tacos at a small, beach taco stand and decided to inquire about a boat taxi. There were many boat
taxis, most had a lot of people on them. The owner of the taco stand saw a guy he knows well (they all know each other) and told us the price to go
where we wanted and called the guy over. We gave the guy his fare, but the driver of the boat was not him and the guy we paid didn't go. We provided
a 30% tip, but the other guy had it. We were concerned for the boat driver. We learned his boat was empty as he was a younger man who was learning how
to do this type of business. When the boat ride was over, the guy who stayed behind paid the boat driver. It's everyone helping everyone. From my
perspective, this is why the majority fall within the same economic class as they don't hoard earnings, they help each other succeed. This is how
community should be.
My take away is this dream left big impact on me that we need to work together as a community and help each other as well as learn a unique skill set
so we contribute to that community's survival and success.
