The Tragedy That Was ONDOY...

September 26, 2009 - Tomorrow marks the year after the tragic typhoon Ondoy.

I was going to work and everything seems to be normal that morning. It looked like any ordinary gloomy, rainy weather. Little did I  know that this rain could drown almost the entire Metro Manila (a month worth of rain poured that day according to PAG-ASA).

After the typhoon, seeing the news on TV, I was saddened by what had happened to many of our fellow Filipinos especially in the Marikina and the Rizal area. People lost their houses and hard-earned belongings. And the saddest is, some lost loved-ones. Many died.

Looking back,  I can't help but feel  the same sadness I felt last year. It is a traumatic memory. But more importantly, it is the lessons I (WE) have learned from it that really matters. As how the saying goes, "Stand up and pick up from where you fell down."

This has really been an eye-opener for all of us. Why? Ondoy is just one of the "signs". Our mother nature is taking its toll on us because we did not take care of her. We  now experience how abnormal our weather  and the calamities can be -- La Niña, El Niño, tsunami, earthquakes and hurricanes here and there. Let's protect nature as it has nourished us. It is not yet too late.

Secondly, this event has taught me to live simply. Whatever we have here on earth is temporary.  We can lose it at any time. Just a snap from God and all's gone - only He knows when. Life should not be dwelt on earthly things but must be focused on having a good spiritual and moral well being.

This is life. Let's all move on but let's not forget what this tragedy has taught us. Let's just be prepared for the things that are in store for us.

Ondoy leaves the Philippines
"There's a rainbow always after the rain... "

God bless the Philippines, God bless the world...

We're lucky to still be alive despite the tragedy.

"Whatever we have here on earth is temporary."
I've been thinking about this for a while already.
People today are so much afraid of dying because they (we) have been so attached to the material things here.

That's true... We've also been flooded but after seeing what happened to others, I have no right to complain... And I can say we are very lucky!

I just noticed now that people here in our country have been so materialistic... I mean consumerism has boomed...

Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, the Chinese Holocaust. They used this Situation to bury Japanese atrocities.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of planet's history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
Never forget:::It is not a house of Jesus.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new poulation, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.
Which one is it?:
One transitions into the other, allowing the gods to wash their hands of obligation to their Chosen One. My personal "consolation prize".
And since the gods never committed despite tens of billions in mass media, product development and natural disasters/tragedy they will employ the freedom they positioned into the Situation and CHEAT me out of everything.
The gods are control freaks.
So much for self-determination.
