Ang Mundo, Tao, at Diyos

ANG MUNDO, TAO, AT DIYOS

Ni Apolinario Villalobos

 

Babala:  Ang blog na ito ay para lamang sa mga naniniwalang may Diyos…

 

Ang mga bagay sa ating paligid, pati na ang tao, at ang maayos na pamumuhay ng lahat ang patunay na may Diyos….yan ang paniniwala ko na hindi pwedeng kontrahin ng iba. Hindi naging “aksidente” o basta na lang nagkaroon ng mga bagay, may buhay man o wala sa kalawakang ginagawalan ng mundo, na ginagalawan naman ng tao. Hindi aksidente ang pagkaroon ng kabuluhan ang lahat ng bagay na umangkop sa pangangailangan ng mga hayop, halaman, at taong nagkaroon ng mga ito.

 

Halimbawa sa tao: ang buhok sa ulo ay pangharang sa init ng araw; ang kilay ay pangharang sa tutulong pawis upang hindi dumiretso sa mata; ang ilong ay para sa paghinga at ang mga balahibo sa loob nito ay pangharang sa dumi upang hindi pumasok habang humihinga ang tao; ang labi ay pangtakip ng bunganga upang hindi pasukin ng langaw o lamok at iba pang kulisap; ang ngipin ay pang-nguya ng kakainin; ang palaypay ng tenga ay pang-ipon ng tunog upang dumiretso sa butas, kaya para itong “bulsa”; ang mga kamay ay panghawak at panuntok, samantalang ang mga paa ay panglakad naman at pangsipa; ang buhok sa kili-kili ay proteksyon upang hindi magkaroon ng friction at magdikit ang balat ng braso at tagiliran sa bahaging yon, etc.

 

Ang iba’t ibang lahi at uri ng mga hayop at halaman ay may kanya-kanyang magkakaparehong katangian, at hindi pwedeng sabihing nagkataon lang ang pagkakapareho nila. Kung sasabihing “nagkataon” lang, pwedeng may ipapanganak na Amerikano ang isang nanay na Pilipino (pwera dito ang “albino” na naging puti lang ang balat)…o di kaya ay maaaring magkaanak ang elepante ng tigre.

 

Noong panahon ni Noah, nagkaroon ng malawakang baha na ayon sa Bibliya ay paraan upang mawala ang masasamang lahi sa mundo. Ang hindi lang naitala sa Bibliya ay ang iba pang mga kalamidad na tumama sa mundo upang mabawasan ang dami ng mga may buhay, at tuloy ay magkaroon ng balanse ang dami ng may buhay at pagkaing makukuha o available nang panahong yon. Kung nagawa ng Diyos na magpabaha, ay kaya rin niyang gumamit ng iba pang paraan upang mamintina ang kaayusan at balanse sa mundo.

 

Sa palagay ko, kaya binigyan ng Diyos ng “free will” ang tao, ay upang ito na ang gumawa ng paraan sa pagkontrol ng balanse sa mundo, nang lingid sa kanyang kaalaman. Dahil sa “free will”, ang tao ay nagkaroon ng ugaling pagkagahaman, kriminal, kabaitan, pagiging maka-Diyos, at iba pa. Dinagdag sa “free will” ang dunong o karunungan dahil ito ang ginamit ng tao upang gumawa ng mga kagamitang pamuksa sa kapwa-tao sa pamamagitan ng digmaan, terorismo at iba pa, na ang resulta ay paghihirap at kagutuman. Ang mga patayang nangyayari sa mundo ay nakatulong upang mabawasan ang dami ng tao, dahil kung hindi nagkaroon ng mga digmaan at kung asahan lang ang mga kalamidad, noon pa lang ay maaaring umapaw na ang sangkatauhan sa mundo!

 

Lahat ng tao at hayop, pati mga halaman ay may mga sakit na nananalaytay sa kanilang mga ugat (tao at hayop) at hibla (halaman). Ang dunong na ibinigay sa tao ang siyang gumagawa ng paraan kung paanong mapigilan ang “paglabas” ng mga sakit, sa pamamagitan ng pag-imbento ng mga gamot at ibang kaalaman tulad ng pag-opera. Subalit dahil sa kapabayaan ng tao, hindi niya nakontrol ang sarili upang magpakasasa sa pagkain at bisyo. Dahil diyan naglabasan ang mga sakit na ulcer, kanser, diabetes, high blood, high cholesterol, etc. Hindi nagamit ng maayos ang “free will” kaya naghihirap ngayon ang sangkatauhan dahil sa iba’t ibang sakit….masarap kasing humitit ng sigarilyo at marijuana, suminghot ng cocaine at shabu, lumaklak nang walang patumangga ng alak, lumamon ng maski pagkaing sinabi nang bawal, pagpuyat, etc.

 

Ang mga kalamidad tulad ng bagyo at baha ay resulta ng pagkagahaman ng tao na sumira sa kalikasan, kaya hindi dapat isisi sa Diyos kung bakit madalas na nagkakaroon ng mga ito.  Samantala, ang pagsisisi naman ng tao ay palaging nasa huli na….

 

Common Sense is the Best Aid for Legislation…not the limelight-flooded hearings

COMMON SENSE IS THE BEST AID FOR LEGISLATION

…NOT THE LIMELIGHT-FLOODED HEARINGS

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

 

No amount of cover up can deny the ultimate objective of the legislators in conducting “hearing in aid of legislation”. The two Houses keep on denying that they are courts of justice, yet the way they conduct hearings run contrary to their allegation. Hearings drag unnecessarily and are kept on being conducted despite the accumulation of inputs enough to frame a law or laws. It seems that dragging is intentional as the longer the hearings are conducted, the longer they get covered by media…and that’s for free, yet!

 

On the other hand, the situations that they are investigating do not need costly hearings at all. All they need is conduct sensible and honest-to-goodness researches, for which task, they are supposed to have hired Consultants and Researchers. Expenses for these are supposed to be part of their operating budget that runs into millions of pesos!

 

In the case of drug trade inside the Bilibid, for instance, how can these lawmakers not know that such activity is not only proliferating, but has even taken root, too deep, to be budged? How can they not know that something is wrong with practically the whole system of the penitentiary which is under the DOJ, as obviously, too, despite its having an Operating Manual? How can they not give attention to the exposes made since the time of Marcos on the anomalies that began as petty ones? How can they not know that the Bilibid has become bigger than an urban barangay or even two combined, complete with luxurious facilities?

 

On the extrajudicial killings….how can the legislators not know that they are offshoots of double-timing transactions among drug suppliers and their cohorts? How can they not know about drugs being recycled by the police and has become a lucrative business among these rogues in uniform, known as, “police ninjas”? How can they not know that there are vigilantes who take the law into their hands after suffering from disappointments on how cases of their victimized loved ones are shoddily handled by corrupt judges, so called, “rogues in robe”? How can they not know that even remote barangays have been infiltrated by the drug menace, and that hideous crimes, such as rape with murder, kidnapping, hostage-taking, and many others related to it are being committed almost daily?

 

Law makers can better use their tax-paid time in reviewing old laws that need to be updated rather than come up with many more that are just shelved due to lack of funds needed for their implementation. But then, millions are filched by corrupt officials from the government coffer!

Telling 15 Beautiful Things Along the Journey

Come on, come on, let’s leave… Let’s go to the place that is beyond the ordinary and let’s search for the unusual. Let’s seek adventures, let’s leave for awhile this mundane life. Chanting this melody and harmonizing  positive vibes,  we would rather be called hippie than boring. We know life is unexciting without a little risk. We are the people of the “outside”.

It’s getting late.
Come on.
Come on.
We’ve got to leave. We’ve got to leave….

Mornings – what’s the healthiest to drink first?

simple Ula

 There are early birds who have no bigger problems with waking up in the morning and there are night owls who struggle to keep their eyes opened after they wake up (that’s me).
No matter which one you are, there are some drinks which help you get through the morning in the healthiest way.

Understanding Palawan:

6349560349_794316a527Palawan is the country’s cleanest and most peaceful city. I have witnessed that during my 4 days stay in Coron. It has been dubbed the “last ecological frontier” in honor of it’s unique ecological balance. It has a land area of 1.5 million hectares, composed of 1,780 islands and islets, and subdivided into 23 municipalities. One of these municipalities is Coron which is located in the Calamianes Group of islands in Northern Palawan.

Sweet Suisse!

DSC09732
Oh Switzerland, you are so beautiful.

Gorner Gorge, Valais, Swiss Alps, Zermatt Switzerland.

DSC09753
Hiking in The Alps is justifiably world famous.

DSC09742

The catwalks up this gorge were constructed in the 1800’s and make for quite an impressive hike for those who are not acrophobic.

DSC09693
This rarely photographed mountain is here too!

DSC09647
There are delightful wooden Swiss chalets everywhere. Zermatt’s old town was built between the 16th-18th century. I will post some photos of these incredible wooden chalets soon.

The Matterhorn is particularly lovely in the evening when the clouds move in.

After an exhilarating day hiking, it’s time to relax and have some fondue and Swiss bier!
Cheers to you from ethereal Zermatt~

The Fjords of The Sunshine Coast~

(Please click to enlarge).
We are in a very remote cabin. People may say this sometimes when maybe it isn’t really true. But trust me. It is completely true. This is how our luggage was brought up to our “off the grid,” hyrdo (read river) powered cabin in The Tantulus Mountains.
DSC01253
Our “stuff” was truck-pulled up the funicular (my word), dumb-waiter (my husband’s word) to our minimal-carbon footprint “chalet.” There are a lot of rules to living up here which I will not bore you with, but the place is so knock your socks off beautiful you won’t believe it, and I will post photos of it soon so you will believe it.
I am however chronologically (as well as spelling and directionally) challenged, so I am going to post the photos in consecutive order. For now, check out the spectacular beauty of The Sunshine Coast.
I managed to post…

Little Cabin in the Big Woods~

dsc01929
We had been to The Knight Inlet in Canada before on a day trip by small boat and always wanted to come back and stay. This is the dock area in Campbell River on Vancouver Island where we met our pilot,
dsc02790
and boarded our plane for the flight into the inlet.
dsc01943
The trip in is stunning and carries you deep into pristine wilderness.
dsc01981
Here is our little cabin in the big woods. It is new construction and sits on the water’s edge.

dsc01977
It is tiny, but charming, and has everything you need.

dsc02576
This is your view when you wake in the misty morning.

dsc02677

In the inlet you are surrounded by wildlife.

dsc02697
There are harbor seals,

dsc02629
and Stellar sea lions, and whales, birds, wolves, cougars,

dsc02262

and of course, the star attraction,

the grizzlies!
Cheers to you from gorgeous Canada~
