GREENS AND SMOG CO-EXIST

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Calming on a famed bar-resto

In the equally famed Eagle’s Nest of Antipolo

Sippin’ a glass of iced tea to cool

My focals brooked no quarters to feast

On the verdance and panoramic vista

Spread around hills from where I seated

To my back a wall of rock nesting

Another famed restaurant in noble state

Twas a day so clear of clouds a-near

But there afar below the flatlands

O’ Marikina, Manila, Makati & metro spaces

Hover dark malignant shrouds of smog

Blanketing the big city as endowment from Hades

Foreboding deaths unto millions of folks

Whose lungs breath toxic air as free trade

Luck it is that lush surround is retained

Neutralizing Hades’ grave emissions a-clear

And great it is that this city I live anew

Perches Divine Mother as nature’s nurturer

A true shelter indeed from all maelstroms

[Philippines, 19 April 2010]

REFLECTION

Antipolo City is famous as a pilgrimage for the Our Lady of Antipolo, located on a shrine cum cathedral at the city center or downtown. The Divine Lady is therefore the inspirational guide of the city, while travelers adore Her as protector, benefactor, and guide. My Terran family’s home is here today, so I am here too, and I do go around with kins for some get-together or visitations to the Our Lady every now and then.

This once idyllic highland town has become a suburban area where Manilans transfer for residency. It has an area called the Eagle’s Nest at the Sumulong Highway, which is perfect for viewing Manila metropolis down below. The scenery down there is wonderful, with canopies of forests and vegetation rolling down your eyes, interspersed with buildings, homes, and so on. A bit farther down are the component cities of Manila.

However, on a clear day, you could see the smog down there on the Manila side. The sight of pollution is dreadful to behold. It can make your hair rise on all ends, if you are an artistic sensitive type or if you suffer from neurosis. An impeccable example of the ‘unity of opposites’, of ecological balance and pollution co-existing. It is like Reason and the Anti-Reason have gelled so well, they don’t seem to exhibit polarity at all.

In the Teaching, the green facet of life represents the Positive energies; those of smog and pollution, the Negative. Too many big cities across the world today that were once citadels of exquisite planning and greenery, have crossed over the threshold to the Negative. Crimes, traffic jams, pollution, overcrowding, slums all blend to take down the positive in a city and convert it to Hades. Sad, truly sad!

Incidentally, Gaia will ensure that such a situation will cease to exist on 2012 and beyond. That is surely very good news for everyone. Smog, slums, traffic jams, crimes, drugs, overcrowding, urban decay will be a thing of the past in the new cities arising thereafter. Such majesty of the future is a cause for grand celebration.

LIGHTBODY ENABLES JOURNEYS FAR AND WIDE May 23, 2015

LIGHTBODY ENABLES JOURNEYS FAR AND WIDE

IN FLIGHT (Poem 6)

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

I shall cross the oceans soon.

I shall bear the basking

Powers of the rain and moisture

Along the cruise

My inner self

Shall be cleansed.

I shall soar high to catch

The warm photons of the Sun

I shall then be assured

Of bright tomorrows.

My spirit will be endowed with boon

As I cross the oceans soon!

As I

Shall cross the oceans,

Cross the oceans

Soon! I

Shall!

[Writ. 22 Aug. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

REFLECTION

Once you ascend spiritually, your Lightbody will be activated. Once done, you will be enabled to traverse spaces at speeds you’ve never imagined before.

As a young man I dreamt of traveling around the world as a social development specialist or ‘development worker’. I felt the great love to serve the peoples of the poorest countries and continents, and help empower the unshod and paupers of those lands. I visualized myself crossing oceans, through meditation practice.

By the time I reached 40, I began to see myself as the Eagle soaring high above the oceans, mountains, valleys, traveling wide swaths of territories. The Eagle is archetype for the mystic, and I re-awakened to my Master awareness by the age of 36. Though my ground level travel dreams were unfulfilled, my flights across wide swaths of oceans and continents were.

Upon the activation of the Lightbody Oversoul in 2008, I noticed an expanded travel across countries on Earth, with me alighting and meeting up with ascended beings in halls and palaces. The color of my visions attained a far more intensity and beauty. Thus, my dreams of travels across countries were fulfilled, even as I continue to travel there to meet my fellow Brothers and Sisters of Light, as well as to talk before seekers and starseeds using my same Lightbody.

NIRVANA MUST BE ACHIEVED IN SOCIAL CONTEXT May 5, 2015

NIRVANA MUST BE ACHIEVED IN SOCIAL CONTEXT

 

IN FLIGHT (Poem 19)

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Here in the Pearl of the Orient

I’ve met you all of Earth’s social types:

Pauper and wealthy merchant

Fisherfolk, peasant and gentry

Countryfolk, villager and highlander

Craftsman, workingman, magnate, banker

Prostitute, gangster and policeman

Bishop, priest, nun, monk, minister and sinner

Pedagogue, manager and white-collar man

Sailor, bus driver and flyboy

Clerk, bartender and pedlar

Soldier and rebel warrior

Politician, publican and rabble rouser

Idiot, artist, athlete, genius.

Luck-struck! I feel like a star!

An opportuned social alchemist ceaselessly immersed

In all social spaces

Transmuted henceforth!

Rendered flexibly immortal to live and lead

In all imaginable shapes and spheres.

I shall fly so soon.

Scattered are your seeds over

Earth’s living zones

You ramparts of the planet.

[Writ. 30 Aug. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

 

REFLECTION

In my book Libertosophy & Freethought, I declared the thesis that one must attain self-realization or moksha within a social context. Be where the people are, practice devotion to God by showing devotion to them too, and serve the helpless ones to alleviate their needs and impoverishment. Serve wholeheartedly, and do it in silence.

Ascension that is done in a social context I first termed then as ‘social alchemy’. At a latter time, I coined the term libertosophy to mean a paradigm of spiritual truths, knowledge, wisdom that is suited for an aspirant who moves in the sub-paths of service and enlightened power, such as the social activists of our time.

I never found appreciation for those monks in Tibet who were isolating themselves inside caves and seemingly meditating forever. On the contrary, I disdained such a practice. One need not be a monk in order to ascend and attain moksha, one can isolate the self by living alone in your urban flat, but do not delude yourself with attaining moksha by total isolation.

Be like the proverbial Prometheus, who brought Light to those in need, though you may be challenged by Desire and may buckle down at times (Desire symbolized by the Vulture that pecked Prometheus’ liver while he was tied on a rock). As Jesus urged us, feed the poor, give water to the thirsty. Bring for the Light of truth, knowledge, wisdom to those who are in need, that they too can find balance within them, develop inner peace, and find the Path to nirvana or salvation.
