Ricky Lee's Trip To Quiapo
I felt hope in one of the passages: "Good Karma supercedes Bad Feng Shui." It resonates with me because I read that while I was living in a place that I don't want to be in anymore. I also saw the ideal of proactively doing good things in a new light. A tithe is just one form of "karmic investment."
I laughed at the passage "If you don't like somebody, lend him money and he will stay away." That's so wise and so true. It reminded me of the people who screwed me for money. I've learned to let go. Forgiveness brings good karma too. We will all reap what we sow
"Pranic healing is based on two basic principles: cleansing and energizing," he says. "Disintegrate the accumulated negative thoughts and feelings, in the form of negative thought entities, by simply erasing them with electric violet pranic energy. The intention and the act of disintegrating the negative thought entities are symbolized by the act of erasing."
Breathe deeply. Relax. "By regulating the breathing rhythm or by doing slowly deep abdominal breathing, the movement of the solar plexus chakra is regulated and harmonized, thereby producing calmness, peace and serenity. In other words, you can control your emotion and your mind by controlling your breathing rhythm." Inhale slowly, expanding your abdomen. Hold your breath for about two seconds. Then slowly exhale, contracting your abdomen.
Always invoke divine blessing before you begin healing. Always state your intention to heal and remove all negative elements. You receive healing energy from your Higher Self through your crown chakra and you project this through the palm of your hand to heal as a brilliant white light surrounded by light violet. Focus on the chakras on your crown and palm simulatanenously. You use this to "seal protective webs" in the chakras and "to disintegrate elementals and accumulated thoughts and feelings."
You must "be calm and detached in order to release the projected pranic energy." Activate your lower chakras with light-red pranic energy. Activate your higher chakras with electric violet energy. Focus "on the base of your spine and your hand chakra. Then visualize white light projecting from your hand chakra. Combine light red to the white light so that it becomes light whitish red. Will the affected chakra to become bigger."
You can control violent people by inhibiting their overactivated chakras. You do this by getting pranic energy through your throat chakra. Then "visualize white light projecting from your hand chakra. Add blue to the white light. Visualize and project light blue. Will the affected chakras to become smaller."
Seal your chakral shields by cleansing and energizing them with electric violet pranic energy that forms into a ball of light. "You are shielded from all psychic intrusions, all psychic contamination and all psychic attacks." And "This chakral shield is internally permeable. This will allow all negative thoughts and negative emotions of the patient to come out of this shield. As I will it, so be it."
You create an auric shield around you or your patients by enclosing the aura in a ball of electric violet pranic energy. Decree that the auric shield you create is a protection against "all psychic intrusions, all psychic attacks and all psychic contamination," and it is "internally permeable" to "allow all negative thoughts, all negative emotions and all used-up energy to come out of the shield. So be it."
Loving your fellowmen is as easy as ABC, says Chuck in another episode, and I find it obvious that he hasn't met my neighbors. A is Acceptance; B is Believing you are a valuable soul inside your skin which is eternal; C is "I care that you hurt;" D is "I desire what's best for you." He adds an E for "I erase all past offenses."
Life is short, just "a mere vapor," says Chuck. Do you want to spend the rest of your days making lists of your grievances? he asks.
Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, was asked about a man who had wronged her. "I distinctly remember," she replied, "of having forgotten that."

The first took a direct jeepney ride and arrived there before he could even send a text message.
The second found himself in Recto at the university belt, then took the LRT 2 train to Santolan, then a jeep to Antipolo and another jeep to Tanay up in the Rizal mountains. Then he he got on a bus to Siniloan and circled the entire Laguna province. He ended up in Alabang. So took a Lawton bus then walked the bridge across the Pasig River from the Post Office to Quiapo.
He got lost but had a lot more adventures, making him a better writer.
The third went the opposite direction: to Pasay. Then he got aboard a roll-on, roll-off (RORO) inter-island bus bound for Leyte, passing Bicol, Samar and the San Juanico Bridge. Then he took a ferry to Cebu.
That third person never even got to Quiapo - but he made them believe he did.
He's the best writer of the three.

With every chapter in our lives comes a new beginning. There is a sense of the sacred in celebrating the Moment because, though our stories never end, we may never pass this way again
This week in my Saturday night blog 2Rivers, I bid farewell to my beloved characters in my 2012 Palanca Awards story, "Fisherboy: Imaginarily Directed By Ishmael Bernal." I dedicate this story to the memory of some of the special people in my life who appear here as Prudy, Orlando, Dolfo, Temyong, and, of course, Jay
In a world where relationships can be as fragile as the gossamer wings of a butterfly, memories are perhaps the only things that we can truly call our own.
We have been blessed with friends who think of us with fondness and goodwill.
There is a sense of magic when our lives are touched by others along the way as we journey in this pilgrimage called life.
"To understand everything is to forgive everything.”
