How to realize your new year’s goal

December 24, 2011

Every friend I know does a new year’s resolution. This year i have more friends now who say ‘let’s have a community goal for saving ourselves from disaster.” due to the recent storms and tragedies. I have done a share of  life healing deeds this year and knowing how precious using my senses is, i vow to be sensitive and mindful  to a hundred people, friends and future friends.”

Why and how does this sensing and mindfulness work ? In the language of  common sense ( from Gramsci) and  brain science (from the neuroscientist  Dr.Luria)  we can use our eyes, ears, hands,nose and taste buds to know the life movies that goes on in our minds. Yes, we are constantly making a movie of our life with our brain and heart. This movie is non-stop and weaves all kinds of stories that get embedded in our skin, our heart, our brain.

When I studied  body talk health system with Dorothy Friesen and Ben Manalo, they gave me a protocol that systematize the techniques for balancing the brain and allowing to view one’s  health issues . When I learned the biomuscular feedback in the early 70’s, I didn’t know that 4  decades after, this technique has been used by body talk system to listen and learn about the body’s current priorities. I was amazed at how fast the body gave  an answer to the query where to find the imbalance. I also realized the body system is like a galaxy of organs, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, synapses and cells communicating their work and issues. For two years, i practiced sensing and listening on my family and friends until word got around that i could even ‘converse with those in comatose states.”

How does this help realize one’s new year goal? First, make a story of your goal – a beginning, a middle and an end. Say ” I am  Alice in Wonderland. I will make 2012 a year of adventures.” Or you can do Harry Potter ”  I AM the  boy who survived to be the greatest wizard.”  Second, be imaginative and visualize your settings, your ensemble or supporting cast  and write your script with all the emotions that inspire you. Third, do it now, not after xmas, not after 2012 strikes, but today. For me, i prefer the epic stories so that it keeps me on my best toes – like living the life of Lord of the Rings or  Princess Amygdala of Star Wars. This story will resonate in your energy and what you wish to be, to do, if viewed and experienced by people who see you,  who sense you, who listen to you – will make your story come true.

Life is a blossoming story . Make your new year a wonderful story where you are the main actor. Do it now.

Why we need to help Mt. Pinatubo Aetas do Organic Farming cum Rainforestation

December 5, 2011

Three Advent Calls to help our Aeta friends sustain the organic farming and rainforestation in Mt. Pinatubo now.

Please consider the following and read more from the web sources.
“Scientists know that increasing SO2 in the air deflects sunlight, which cools down the earth; when Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines exploded in 1992, for instance, the SO2 sent into the atmosphere created a brief global cooling spell.”

“When Mount Pinatubo erupted in 1991, the amount of sulfuric ash it sent into the stratosphere cooled global ground temperatures by 1°F for the next two years. To be fair, it hadn’t erupted for six centuries, so there was some catching up to do. A year before the eruption, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck about 60 miles northeast of Pinatubo, causing landslides and an increase in steam emissions from one of the volcano’s geothermal areas, ultimately setting the stage for the 1991 explosion. While the eruption resulted in more than 700 deaths, many scientists predicted the explosion, thus saving the lives of an estimated 5,000. Still, the eruption produced one of the most dramatic environmental scenes ever witnessed. With ash that rose 22 miles into the sky, it is considered the second largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century.”

“Convert agriculture from chemical fertilizer to organic fertilizer derived from biodigestion of the biomass waste stream. That’s a way to cancel huge amounts of methane (due to fertilizer and manure runoff acting to decompose cellulose in wetlands) and nitrous oxide from chemical fertilizer and manure. Not to mention that biogas from the process of making organic fertilizer can help to backup distributed generation and storage smart grids.” The AETAS with Education for Life (ELF) and the Dept of Agriculture (DA) have a FOOD Security project in Zambales, especially in Botolan. We are assisting them in developing  biodiversity in their ancestral domain in Mt. Pinatubo and provide enough organic food for the indigenous communities so they will live above the poverty line. Their work is  beneficial to all of us, locally,nationally and globally. For every peso/dollar we give to the project, it saves the Earth from heating up.
