6000 Passengers on Cruise Ship Remains a Question in Pandemic

Published

on

Despite the continued inspection of the cruise industry as a response to coronavirus, 6000 passengers are still known to be on the cruise liners. A huge number of passengers have been dying despite the dozen fatalities being linked with cruise ships. As per the CruiseMapper, which is a ship-tracking site, 8 passenger ships remain at the sea along with a vessel on which 128 have tested positive for the virus.

US CDC, who neglect the regular flights stated “Outbreaks of Covid-19 on cruise ships pose a risk for the rapid spread of disease beyond the voyage”
Even though the representatives of the cruise industry use words such as ‘caught without warning’ by the pandemic in their defense, their regular business continued even after WHO declared the virus a pandemic in mid-March.

Neglecting CDC advice of refusing cruise travel, six ships which were suspected to have coronavirus outbreak set for a sail on 8 March from the US. Many around the world including, Queen Mary 2, Columbus, Greg Mortimer, Astor Magnifica cruise liners, all of them remain at sea. As per the instructions of Us and Europe, these passengers have been told not to disembark only until after two weeks of them being tested negative for the virus.

Many have stated through WhatsApp texts that they await positive news every morning. Although there have been no reports of COVID-19 cases on any of the other cruise ships, CDC recommended that any of the thousands of these passengers can increase the risk of spreading. Many cruise liners are under investigation to detect coronavirus patients.

Where they record no case, a few days later one of the passengers tests positive for the virus which has led to these individuals launching lawsuits against cruise liners. These companies claim the situation came without warning which has been leading to dis management in ship’s medical bays.

James Walker, Florida’s attorney claims the lack of government oversight in the industry as the reason for these situations as he believes that this is what led to the operations not starting any sooner. Even now that the situation is being dealt with, ‘it seems to be out of control’ for him

Nourishing the Balance of the Universe

Published

on

By

On the one hand, who are we microscopic beings to think we can have any effect at all on something as vast and incomprehensible as the Universe-in which we are so minuscule as to be inconsequential, and may be sloughed off the face of the earth as easily as a snake may shed it skin?

On the other hand, as aspects of the Infinite Ineffable Intelligence, our evolutionary destiny lies in recognizing our Oneness: understanding that there is no ‘other’ and that as such, whatsoever we do to or for another we are only doing to or for our own selves.

Then, in the same way that all of Nature fulfills its function perfectly – predator and prey maintaining balance in their populations; bees and birds pollinating and propagating; fruits and flowers reproducing and nourishing; flood and drought and fire cycling through the seasons-so too mankind may fulfill its dharma. And while one might argue that Dharma cannot help but be fulfilled, in this moment of history the impetus and need to greater harmony cannot be denied.

The undertaking is clear-there is no longer time for self-indulgence. Knowing that harmony cannot be imposed from without, but must manifest from within, it then falls to each one of us to light up her individual cell in the body of humanity by cultivating Consciousness and embodying Love. For all the striving toward sustainability and equality, however well motivated or intentioned, cannot succeed so long as greed is the dominant force on the planet. And greed will not be overcome until the understanding of Oneness reaches critical mass.

This, then, is our charge: to understand and encourage the necessity of shedding the mistaken identities that have enabled the powers-that-be to divide and conquer; and to foster the realization that the suffering of any is the suffering of all; and to create a global movement and proclaim our Oneness around the world.

We can then nourish the Balance of the Universe by establishing Harmony on our planet-a harmony that only comes from the recognition that ‘We are One and there’s Enough.’

1) Interest rates: We have experienced a prolonged period of historically – low – interest rates. This has created easy money, because the cost of borrowing is so low. Both individuals and corporations have benefited, at least, in the immediate- term, permitting home buyers to purchase more house, because their monthly charges, are low, due to low mortgage rates. Corporate and government bonds, and banks, have paid low returns. It has stemmed, inflation, and created a rise in home prices, we haven’t witnessed, in recent memory. The Federal Reserve Bank has signaled they will be ending this propping – up, and will also raise rates, probably three times, in 2022. What do you think that will cause.

2) Auto loans, consumer loans, borrowing: The auto industry has been, significantly, impacted by supply chain challenges. When rates rise, auto loans and leases, will be more costly.

Book Review: Regaining Paradise: Forming a New Worldview, Knowing God, and Journeying Into Eternity

Published

on

By

Do you feel a sense of incompleteness? A longing to return to a place you have never been to? “Regaining Paradise: Forming a New Worldview, Knowing God, and Journeying into Eternity” might not have the answers to all of your questions, but it will help you find the answers you are searching for. Prepare yourself to be taken on a “hero’s journey” by Paul Corson on the vehicle of imagination.

“Regaining Paradise” is about regaining what we once all had, but then slowly grew out of, the light of Paradise. A light that many of us have turned a blind eye to. In a world in which materialism gains ever more ground, it is a challenge to see beyond the mirage of the tangible. But, as Paul Corson notes, the solid is mostly intangible energy. The author has peeked behind the veil of our reality and not just seen but experienced what lies beyond. If you accept his invitation to journey together, so will you.

Although Regaining Paradise heavily draws on the author’s personal transcendent experience, that is not the only source of inspiration. The curious nature of the author comes across in the rich references that embellish the book, from a great variety of fields: literature, mythology, philosophy, psychology… the list goes on.

https://uolsocial.socioon.com/read-blog/735_how-safe-are-body-piercings-and-why-newscalibre.html

What is more, an argumentative narrative flows throughout the pages of the book. Paul Corson takes a critical approach, analyzing the scientific view of many of the fundamental issues of life and the universe, like consciousness, time, and the nature of energy. A view that he disseminates and confronts with his own perspective. The curiosity of the author and his thirst for knowledge seeps off the pages of the book and is quite contagious. I believe that this is one of the greatest gifts a read can offer, to elicit curiosity.

The journey is comprised of a total of forty chapters which in the end unify in a holistic view. It all begins with the author’s personal transcendent experiences and the stream of insight that arose from such occasions. But more accounts will appear throughout the book. Then, we are lead through a section dense with information that takes on topics from the fields of psychology, physics, neurology, biology, and quantum physics to address issues from the singularity of the individual to the clockwork of the universe. While towards the end, we dwell in Heaven for a couple of chapters.

Regardless of your stance on issues of transcendence, you will find some captivating elements in “Regaining Paradise: Forming a New Worldview, Knowing God, and Journeying into Eternity”. And although not all of your questions might be answered by the end of your journey, it will certainly be an eventful venture through a multitude of topics, guided by Paul Corson. And maybe, hopefully, you will have sailed to a new port of your life.

Salesian Contributions to the Ahmednagar Mission: A Theological, Historical and Pastoral Study

Published

on

By

The book has got a catchy title and promises an interesting exploration of the Salesian mission at Ahmednagar, Maharashtra. This book is the fruit of the author’s research as part of the Masters in Theology course with a specialization in mission. The aim of the book is to offer a review of the mission at Ahmednagar which has a rich cultural history. The book has 3 chapters preceded by a General Introduction and followed by a General Conclusion and a few appendixes and bibliography.

First of all, let me start by saying that the book looks very attractive. The cover is well designed and the layout in general is aesthetically pleasing. The author has provided a glossary of words which allows the reader to grasp the concepts and local traditions better. The first chapter offers an explanation of the term ‘mission’ by using etymological, biblical and magisterial sources. The chapter is very brief and centres around the term ‘mission’ itself without entering into discussions on related themes. The second chapter offers a history of the Ahmednagar mission by accessing historical and civil documents and making mention of Protestant and Catholic interventions. The final chapter highlights the effects of the Salesians in the mission since their take-over in 1986. The appendixes contain maps of the region, historical documents making reference to Christian interventions and finally a helpful list of all the parish priests of St. John the Baptist Church, Ahmednagar, which is the focal point of the mission.

https://uolsocial.socioon.com/read-blog/731_navel-piercing-aftercare-three-newscalibre.html

While the author ought to be commended for undertaking this important project, I question it’s real worth as a theological and missiological study. While the book has been called by the author himself and other appraisers, ‘a labour of love,’ I felt it a labourious read. The book has numerous grammatical errors and typos that don’t allow for smooth reading. The language used is rather simplistic and fails to appropriately convey the message behind the text; this is especially true of the glossary. The table of contents is not very helpful though it gives the chapter heads and sub-heads, since it does not display page numbers. There are a couple of methodological errors. The list of abbreviations seems to be superfluous since the author felt it necessary to use the full names in the text and offer the abbreviation again in parenthesis. There is an occasion where the abbreviation given was used for another term than the one mentioned in the original list.

The book lacks integrity. The author uses the sub-title “A Theological, Historical and Pastoral Study.” Apparently, those are the 3 parts he divides the book into. I don’t feel that the sub-title is appropriate because these 3 elements are exclusive of each other and are not directly related to the main title which reads, “Salesian Contribution to the Ahmednagar Mission.’ The chapters don’t follow one another and don’t form a combined whole. Chapter one deals with the term ‘mission’ without any reference to the next two chapters and explores themes that are not developed or even referenced in the following chapters. It offers an insipid and hurried explanation of the term. Frankly, it seems like the chapter is a very short summary of the Master’s course. Chapter two offers a historical account of the importance of Ahmednagar and details the entry of Christianity into the region, even making mention of the names of a few instrumental persons. This chapter in my opinion went too deep into history and did not serve its purpose fully. The third chapter once again offers a historical account of the Salesian work at Ahmednagar. While the history might be interesting to read for Salesians and those who are interested in the Christian mission in that region, it hardly offers anything else to the reader. The author makes a critical reflection at the end on the Salesian mission and its impact. He does not hesitate to expose the drawbacks of the Salesian mission, a bold move in my opinion considering that first and foremost, he is a Salesian himself and secondly, he has had firsthand experience of working there!

https://uolsocial.socioon.com/read-blog/680_what-is-the-next-big-thing-for-belly-newscalibre.html

It seemed to me at the end of the book that this was no more than an attempt at systematically presenting history. I do not feel that the author achieved the objectives he set out at the beginning which were to ‘provide a comprehensive understanding of evangelizing mission while also discussing the challenges the Salesians faced in this mission’ and ‘throwing light on the possibilities of involving the laity in the mission’ (p. 4). While there are a few suggestions made to improve the scope and quality of the mission, they are directed towards the Salesians and make no mention of the laity. All in all, the book is not groundbreaking either from a missiological, historical or pastoral perspective, although it is the first attempt at making a condensed presentation of the Salesian mission at Ahmednagar. Those living and working there might find consolation and perhaps even inspiration in these pages but as a theological work, this book is quite forgettable.

New Book Explores Near-Death Experiences and Hawaiian Spirituality

Published

on

By

David J. Wallace’s new book The Journey of Our Souls: What You Can Learn from One Man’s Multiple Near-Death Experiences is the kind of book that blows your socks off and makes you reconnect to your own spirituality in new and surprising ways.

Wallace is a native Hawaiian who shares in these pages his life story growing up in Hawaii and how Hawaiian culture and religious beliefs influenced his journey to becoming a “kahu”-a spiritual leader and healer-among his people. Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, he was often taught to repress his natural gifts and his people’s ancient spiritual beliefs. Raised as a Mormon, however, he also grew up in a culture where people sometimes didn’t always see much difference or conflict between what Mormonism taught and the beliefs of their Hawaiian ancestors.

Wallace’s journey got off to a rocky start when, as a five-year-old, he fell out of the backseat of a moving car and had a near-death experience. He was taken by an ancestor to a waiting place to determine whether he would be moving on into the afterlife or returning to earth. Thankfully, he returned to this life, though he would end up having three more near-death experiences, all of which he details in this book.

Beyond telling his personal story, Wallace uses The Journey of Our Souls to explore what it means to be an immortal soul trapped in a human body. He compares it to being “a world champion race car driver with a secondhand beater with bald tires to compete in the Indianapolis 500,” which he says is “a disaster waiting to happen” because “This gap between spiritual potential and physical reality can create a lifetime of challenges as the soul, mind, and body attempt to coexist peacefully.” Throughout the book, Wallace details how he has managed that challenge and how we can do the same. Ultimately, he says our soul is our moral compass and its journeys equip us with the tools and experiences we need to achieve balance and fulfillment. We need to live our higher soul purpose to achieve that balance and fulfillment.

https://anynote.co/read-blog/31934_arabic-mehndi-designs-for-newscalibre.html

Wallace learned to live his soul purpose in many ways, most importantly by waking up to the gifts he has. Among the gifts he has accepted and developed is an ability to predict the future through prophetic dreams, an ability to see things that are hidden (he started by guessing what was inside his wrapped Christmas presents as a child and worked his way up to bigger things), and remote viewing-an ability to see things hundreds of miles away.

One aspect of this book I especially enjoyed was reading about Wallace’s Hawaiian culture and how it informs his beliefs. I find his belief in Hawaiian spirits and magic surprising and yet deeply interesting. Wallace especially believes in the importance of connecting with one’s ancestors. He feels his ancestors are interested in him and ready to help him when he needs them. He discusses how to develop relationships with them and gain their trust so they will aid you.

Wallace also wants to aid other people. Today, he uses his gifts to assist people in various ways. He has helped sick people to confirm whether or not they have cancer. He has helped people to make peace with disruptive and possessive spirits living in their homes. And he has helped his community through facilitating Hawaiian cultural and educational experiences to keep Hawaiian beliefs alive for future generations.

I do not want to give away all the great stories in this book, but to read about how Wallace predicted the death of a coworker and how he helped to heal a student so he could play football for the next game were all entertaining but also informative. Throughout, Wallace finds that by being in touch with his gifts and being open to the Universe, synchronicities and surprising but meaningful experiences can occur.

Wallace also has had success in playing the lottery. While he hasn’t won the million-dollar jackpot, he has developed a system that helps him match several numbers when he buys lottery tickets, as well as to be successful at various games in casinos. He shares some of his methods and tips in this book, and he is available for private consultations for those who want to learn more.

While everyone may not believe everything in these pages, Wallace comes across as an honest and humble man. At the end of the book, he discusses the importance of being a leader and how he has often taken on that role reluctantly. In the beginning, he was unwilling to develop or share his gifts because he feared being an outcast, but in the end, he realized God (or the gods) had given him talents he was meant to use to make the world a better place. He has helped many people, and now he hopes to expand his ability to help others through the advice and information he offers in this book. I guarantee you will see life in a new way after experiencing The Journey of Our Souls.
