The New Reality


A lucid dream it was.  In it was the suggestion that with the new San Pascual Baylon de Guinarona, Guinaronanhons will initiate new ways of doing things.  Indeed, fresh from having to deal with the finality of the old San Pascual’s disappearance and the total mess Super Typhoon Haiyan left us, what other mode of operating than change things up a bit?First off, we had this reading from K, a first-rate oracle from the United States, whose being is possessed by an old soul knowledgeable in all things.  Her reading stated rather matter-of-factly that our old San Pascual has been underwater since the boat it was loaded on sank (photo with annotations).  Which means that we have to accept with finality that our century-old image of San Pascual is not coming home anytime soon, and that we have to banish our sorrow and just work around our loss.

The Onus of Rebuilding

8476928111_ce7da41261_z5 A tropical rain forest.

With Super Typhoon Haiyan–the strongest typhoon in human history–now a memory, the onus of rebuilding and its nastiness takes hold. (As if we had a choice.) Nasty because everybody is clamoring for the same materials and their finite supply, hence the through-the-roof prices. Nasty because some people want to just show off, never mind that being a “hambog” in these interesting times is passe. Never mind that the times call for out-of-the-box ideas and solutions.

Take the issue of forest timber. Of course, Guinarona has one of the last virgin forests standing in Mt. Lubi. The problem is, utilizing even the ones felled by the super typhoon has the onus of the government pouncing on you, not to mention the payback in terms of flash floods in the magnitude that happened in Ormoc City in 1991. So that option is out.

The Dynamics of Healing


Healing in the macro and micro levels entails measures to balance things out, to achieve equilibrium as it were. Indeed, as in Buddhist thought, there is a “hospital” both in the earth and in the human body. Whereas the earth heals itself by way of cataclysms, the human body rights itself with its antibodies, which attack any invading plague. And where the antibodies are overpowered, as in the case of metastasis, the organism seeks healing outside himself.And in an era of exorbitant healthcare costs, the way to go is preventive care. But if, because of abuse and bad habits we find ourselves in metastasis, we approach the problem from an omniscient point of view–that is, in a level higher than the problem itself. In which case we may go the actual hospital route–and really get whacked with bills you could hardly pay (if you are uninsured) or go the holistic way. Which means a healing regimen less invasive and more attuned to the forces of the universe. Call it the miracle route–whatever.
