anecdote 10 – THE CHILD GRANDMASTER

THE CHILD GRANDMASTER
-
By Bernie Lopez, eastwind
-
if you are the greatest
you must be the humblest
otherwise you somehow lose
your greatness in the end
-
for greatness with humility is wisdom
and greatness with arrogance is ignorance
there is a long hard road to true greatness
and there are but a chosen few who get there
-
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
At the age of four, Justin was playing chess with his grandmaster dad. He learned all the complex tournament tricks at such an early age. Watching grandmasters play on television, he was intrigued by their composure, and wanted to be one himself. Slowly, he was becoming a great chess player.
-
At such a young age, Justin began playing with the best chess players everywhere, young and old. He had many crucial battles before the age of ten. One such encounter was with Francis, three years older than him, and with better track record and experience. Francis was, like Justin, a child champion. But unlike Justin who stayed in the shadows, Francis had been featured many times in the newspapers as a wonder boy in chess who had not yet been defeated in any tournament.
-
And so the day for the great battle came. Francis wore a white suit and had an entourage of aides. Justin wore a T-shirt with a photo of his idol Karpov. He was alone because his father was in the hospital that day. Francis grinned at Justin in a condescending way, confident that he had never lost. Justin felt that condescension but was unaffected. He smiled back courteously. He had no fear even if he knew he was facing a giant. Justin was totally confident because he remembered his father’s words about winning and losing – “Even if you lose, you have nothing to lose if you have no ego, your greatest enemy.”
-
Justin was excited because he played black. The grandmasters he idolized always won in black. Black was the underdog’s choice, where one was out to prove the odds wrong and do not count in chess. Black offered the challenge in a match where the enemy had the first move. Having the initiative in white, Francis lost no time in a quick vicious two-pronged attack, like a Panzer division in a blitzkrieg. Francis had intense dagger eyes, but Justin simply looked down, which irritated Francis. Justin long before knew that kind of game. He employed a solid precision defense. His dad said a solid defense is an offense. There was not so much of a creative strategy, only standard protocol ‘defense’ when attacked. There was one rule – never lose your ability to launch sudden counterattacks while you go on defense, and always look for such a weakness or opening from an attacking foe.
-
Then came the opportunity. Francis left his queen side defenceless in his intent to finish the game with a quick offensive. Justin saw the opening, the weakness. It was partly due to Francis’ over confidence facing a seemingly timid younger less experienced kid that made him a bit reckless in the blinding light of the media coverage. His father’s words echoed in Justin’s mind, “Ego is the enemy.”
-
And so Justin launched a vicious counterattack with his queen, horse and rook. Francis’ grin changed into a hidden frown. His moves were taking longer. The clock was now against him. Justin sat calmly, making quick sure moves. He now had the initiative. Under extreme time pressure, Francis made the final blunder, one he could have squeezed out of if Justin did not see the subtle error. But, alas, Justin saw it four moves before. Once Francis touched his rook, Justin knew he had won the game.
-
Justin was trying very hard to suppress his joy, his smile of triumph. So he bowed his head again. Francis thought the absence of Justin’s body language meant he did not see the blunder. He tried to distract Justin by staring at the quiet side of the board. Very gently, very quickly, Justin moved for the kill. He did not even say ‘checkmate’. Francis went into a violent fit. He pounded on the chess board. The chess pieces flew and scattered on the floor. Quietly, Justin calmly picked up the pieces one by one and reconstituted the board by memory. Grandmasters have photographic memory. They know the exact position of chessboards and every move until the end, on games they played two tournaments ago or seven years ago.
-
Justin slowly raised his eyes and was devastated by the contorted face of Francis. Francis pounded on the board a second time, and stormed out of the room in tears, in the first ever tournament game he lost. All this was in front of the very media that pedestalled Francis. Justin picked up the pieces calmly once more so that the game officials and the camera could record the end game. Then he ran after Francis to comfort him. Justin eventually became the youngest grandmaster ever at the age of 12, and Francis the second youngest.
-
Justin beat Francis black and blue two more times in subsequent events, perhaps because of the psychological pressure of his first defeat. Finally, on the third game, Francis won. He waited for Justin to frown but was disappointed when he smiled and offered a hand. Francis said, “It is no good winning this way. You’re supposed to feel bad. I have only half a victory.”
-
Justin replied, “It is all in your mind. Your ego has distorted your view of reality. You have won fair and square whether I frowned or smiled. You just can’t stand a good loser. You just can’t make me run away in tears like you did. For you it is vengeance, not winning a game. You could have beaten me in the last game if you just knew. Your ego simply ate into your chess skill.”
-
Francis froze in silence. Justin’s blunt words hit home. Justin offered his hand once more. It was hard to smile, but finally Francis did, a genuine smile, not a sarcastic grin. He took Justin’s hand. From then on, they were the best of friends.
-
In subsequent tournaments, under the glaring media lights, they embraced, and raised each other’s hand no matter who won. And there would be a thunder of applause. They were the two best child champions of history. They played to win against each other, but the loser would be happy for the winner. And so, Justin would recall his father’s words –
-
never think you are the best
even if you have beaten everyone
for one day, when you are off your guard
defeat may come like a lightning bolt
on that day, you will be totally devastated
-
when you lose for the first time
what devastates you is not your defeat
but your ego, inflated by many victories
and your thirst for fame
-
Justin would recall his retort –
but why then should I have an ambition
to compete and win
if I do not want to be the best?
i will have nothing to motivate me
-
and his father would reply –
it is alright to be great
and to work hard to win and be the best
but don’t let it go into your head
greatness is different from fame
-
fame is a by-product of greatness
never be greedy for fame
for fame builds and destroys
you and your greatness all at once
-
if you are the greatest
you must be the humblest
otherwise you somehow lose
your greatness in the end
-
for greatness with humility is wisdom
and greatness with arrogance is ignorance
there is a long hard road to true greatness
and there are but a chosen few who get there

Email from an Iraqi Catholic –
“I need help. I am Chaldean. We are Catholics from IRAQ who are persecuted for our faith”. As you may have heard, the Muslim extremists bombed a Church in Baghdad, killing 2 priests and 58 believers. “Is there anyway we can set up a rosary rally for Chaldeans? So all can join in? We need help. Please, I am begging you. I am begging you.”
-
The prayer campaign wrote, “Please remember: the Rosary saved Austria from Russian Communists. It can save Catholics in Iraq too. There used to be 1.5 million Catholics in Iraq but only 400,000 remain. They urgently need our prayers!” The Rosary also saved the Philippines from the Marcos dictatorship during the EDSA Revolt.”

Finally, i pray for all the sick people in the world.

Dear Sister Racquel,
This is my third time now for the last 10 years to ask for help/miracle from God for healing. First, when my father was diagnosed for a stage 3 pancreatic cancer. The doctors told us at that time that he only have 3 months more to live. We were able to know you through our relatives living in Novaliches and we started attending the healing every Saturday. In less than 2 months time our prayers were heard and my father was completely healed from cancer. It was really a miracle and to this date, my father is already 81 years old and he’s still strong. The second time was when I accompanied a lawyer friend to attend for the healing of her mother(residing in the US at that time) who had been diagnosed for a colon cancer. We only brought a picture of her mother when we attended the healing. The next time we went to Mother Ignacia Healing Center after that session, we were accompanying her mother for the thanksgiving because of another miracle – she was completely healed. And now, for the 3rd time, I am asking again for your prayers-for another miracle- for the complete healing of the brother of our close family friend. Nonoy SA is now comatose due to the recently discovered brain cancer. Please, lets include him on our prayers. Thank you very much and God Bless Us All.

Thank you for the opportunity of praying for others. I would like to thank the ministry and all the prayer warriors for praying with me for my cousin Deny V. She had a successful surgery and the good news is, although  it is confirmed that she has Stage 1a cancer, it is not in the blood stream nor in the lymnph nodes. She will not undergo radiation. Praise God for that. Now I am praying for her complete healing. Thank you ever so much, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Anen.

I am Eleanor S. I was given the healing oil last 2009 because I was a breast cancer survivor. I used the oil for my uncle (Ernesto D) who has a big lump on his jaw, suddenly, i noticed that the big lump has decreased it size. Last Nov 17, Wednesday, i placed oil at my sister’s (Amor C) nose. She’s been excreting blood from her nose and is suffering from polyps and she’s very afraid to have check-ups. I prayed hard and I really felt that there was a small lump at both sides of her nose. The next day, her lump has decreased. Lastly, my father (Nelson C) is suffering from osteo-arthritis for 10 years and is no longer operable. He hardly believe these things but I told him just believe in Jesus and Mary that he will be healed. Less than 1 week, he felt a big relief from his ailment, he seldom takes pain releiver now. Please continue to pray for Nelson, Amor and Ernesto D that they will be completely healed by Jesus and Mary. We will attend one of the healing sessions in your Ministry. Thank you very much,

Good Day!
My name is Lala, wife and mother of 2 boys. Last June we lost our youngest son, He was only 2 yrs old, we lost him a day before his Big bro’s birthday. Since then I have been struggling with my life, Although some may think I’m handling this with ease, I am truly not, I try to put on a brave face everyday to eliminate any questions. I do not want to keep on answering questions as to why am i sad. I don’t want to keep on remembering the last time I saw my beautiful son alive. I need help. I am so lost right now, I don’t know where to start, I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to forget him, but I cannot handle remembering what he looked like the first time I saw him alive and gone. A few months before he passed, we had the chance to visit the Mother Ignacia Healing Center in Caloocan, The prayer warriors as well as the nuns were kind enough to offer prayers for my son and was also bathed. I am currently “drowning” in sorrow right now. I don’t know how I can survive this. I would appreciate any help. Please. Thank you so much.

Dear Sr. Raquel and the Prayer Warriors,
I am writing this prayer request for my two friends and will hide them under the names Mark and Stella. Please pray for them because they are experiencing hard times and having problems with their marriage. I do not want them to break up and lose their marriage especially now that their kids are getting affected by their constant fights. I pray that God will touch them so that they will be able to forgive each other and be humbled by God’s love and understanding. May Mark and Stella realize that their marriage is still worth fighting for and may they be able to patch things up and learn from their mistakes. I still believe that they still love each other and are just blinded by their anger. I really pray for their spiritual and financial healing and may God help them overcome this temporary setback in their lives.

*My husband and I always pray for **good health and a blissful marriage.** We pray that my husband will be able to **close a big account** and earn a big commission so that we will be able to help our family, friends and relatives financially.

12 CHECK DUP
Good day to all the prayer warriors.
Please help us pray for the complete healing of my 17 year old nephew, Lavern Mike C. He is an autistic child, deaf and mute since birth. He also suffered epilepsy last October 31, 2010. We were so afraid because he had a seizure and he vomited a lot. Please, please, help us pray for his complete healing. Please help us also pray for Lavern Mike’s parents. They are on financial crises because Nestor, Lavern’s father, lost his job. Please help us pray that he can find another job soon. Lavern’s daily medicines are so expensive and they cannot afford to buy it now, not even their immediate needs. Please help us also pray for my sister Judilyn, the mother of Lavern, that God will give her enough strength to tackle her responsibilty as a good mother to his special child. It breaks my heart when she told me last October 31, 2010 that she want to commit suicide because she felt that the burden that she is suffering now is so much for her to bear. She was asking me why God is giving her an autistic child. She is an active member in the church. But sometimes, she cannot understand why she has to suffer this way. She told me that she asked God why God didn’t punish the mothers who killed their child while they are still in their womb. She wanted a baby before, she cared for his baby while it was in her womb but she asked why should God gave her an autistic child? May God bless us all and grant our prayer request. This is my prayer. Lord God, creator of heaven and earth. We are so sorry for our sins. Please cleanse us with the blood of Jesus Christ our Savior. Lord, we ask You for the complete healing of my nephew Lavern Mike Catacutan. Please touch his head so that whatever problems inside his head that causes his autism be completely healed. Lord, let Lavern hear and speak. Let your power be seen through this child. We are clinging to your promise, Lord, when you said, “Ask and it shall be given unto you, Let them be attentive to the needs of their special child. That they will give their child their utmost tender, loving care. Let them understand that it is not their fault that their child is autistic, deaf and mute. Please, Lord, help Nestor and Judilyn on their financial needs. Let Nestor find another job soon so he can provide for the needs of his family. Let them feel that You, Lord is not forsaking them. Let them feel Your presence, Your power, Your Love, Your guidance. Let the Holy Spirit guide them always. Thank You so much, Lord. We are giving You our praise for hearing us our prayers. All this we ask, through our Lord Jesus Christ, our Loving Savior and Greatest Healer. Amen.

In connection with this I humbly seek additional prayer request for the other illness of my sister, that is, the enlargement of the heart, unstable decision-making, full of stress/hatred, always in emotional quarrel with her husband causing chaotic family relationship resulting to indifferent attitudes of their siblings. I still believe, through prayers everything will be resolved. Hope I, too, will be financially recover in order I can help myself and others who are economically distressed.

Several months ago, I believe I may have contacted your website in regard to a man whose name is William (“Bill”). If I am correct about having previously contacted your site, I thank you for your prayers and ask that you please continue to pray with me for this man’s salvation (also, for his healing from an unspoken ailment). I am not in a position to witness to this man personally, but others have been contacted to this regard. Please ask the Lord to extend His spirit to facilitate and lead a conversational witness through anyone whom He may choose. Please ask God to extend His grace toward Bill, doing everything needed to chase him, overcome his pride, lift the veil from his eyes, bring conviction to his heart and show him his need for a Savior. Like us all, Bill has made some mistakes, and has unfortunately had some tragic things to happen in his life. Please also ask God to sober him, to protect him, to purify his mind, to work on his heart with His spirit; that He’ll place him in the company of believing friends, and that He will not only save Bill, but will use his testimony to bring others to Christ and further the kingdom. I’ve been praying for this man for a long time, now. Regardless of what His will may be, please ask the Lord to uphold my faith in Him; to keep my faith strong in knowing that His word will not return to me void. In Him for His glory and with sincere thanks,

Dear Sister Raquel / Bro. Bernie,
Im asking for help to include my mother, Clarita S, in your healing prayers po. Since July po, she was on and off being admitted to the hospital due to her ailments. Meron po sya diabetes at nagka-complication na po sa kidney. She was admitted again last Oct 20 po dahil po hirap ulit sya huminga, and they found out po na meron sya infection sa lungs. Alam ko po na GOD will hear our prayers in HIS time, at alam ko po thru your prayer ay matutulungan nyo po ang nanay ko na idulog sa Diyos ang pangangailangan ng kagalingan ng aking nanay. Alam ko po na hirap na po ang aking nanay, pero i know, on her sufferings po alam ko di sya binibitiwan ng Diyos, na she will bless my nanay and with His mercy i he-heal nya ang nanay po namin. Nawa po kung ipahihiram pa sa amin ni GOD ang buhay ng nanay, nawa po ay i-heal nya na po si nanay completely. Sister Raquel, sana po gusto namin dalhin ang nanay sa Mother Ignacia, yun nga lang po naka-admit pa po sya sa Meycauayan Doctor’s Hospital sa ICU po. Mag 1 month na po sya sa ICU, kaya sana po matulungan nyo kami sa pananalangin para sa kagalingan po ng nanay namin. Alam ko po only GOD knows what is His plan for my mom, but thru your prayers and our prayers i know na diringgin po ni GOD ang lahat at ibibigay nya what is BEST for my mother. Maraming maraming salamat po sister Raquel. Nawa’y pagpalain po kayo palagi ng Diyos. Gumagalang,

Good day Sister Raquel!
Hi, I’m Ma. Carmela J of Indang, Cavite. Last July 12, 20010 my father named Edgardo was diagnosed of stroke. He was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit of DLSU Medical Hospital Dasmarinas, Cavite for almost 4 days and then after 3 days he was an dispatched. For almost a month, he was done physical therapy by my sister Christine. Done exercises, with electronic apparatus put on the affected part of his body and we prayed as a family. At this moment, he was recovering with God’s graces. He is really a Saviour, a curing Medicine and a Doctor. He can now drive, do cooking food for us, marketing on the hot days and it’s really a normal life day to day living again. We also attended Healing Masses with Fr. Suarez at Monte Maria Church in Amuyong, Alfonso Cavite. May I request for the Healing Prayer for my father and can I also have the healing oil? Our faith to God really become stronger and stronger, because I really feel His presence and he cured my father little by little.. I want my father to still have a long life and the sickness – Stroke won’t happen it again. I’m asking for your guidance and prayers. Help my father be healed totally. Thank you very much..

Dear Friend in Christ,
Thank you for entrusting your prayer intentions to us. Please know that we are continuing to remember you and your special intentions for the complete physical, mental and spiritual health for you and your prayer intentions at our times of adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist, during daily Masses and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The fruits of the Holy Spirit, such as love, peace, joy and patience, are found when two or three come together in prayer. These bring true happiness and a stronger faith to help people overcome their difficulties. The message of mercy is that God loves us * just remember the ABC’s of the Divine Mercy message. Ask for His Mercy. God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins and asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon the whole world. Be Merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others just as He does to us. Completely Trust. God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive. God bless you,

WE ARE MADE FROM STARDUST
The Synergy between Man and the Universe
-
By Bernie Lopez, eastwind
-
We are stardust and to stardust we shall return. That would be in a few billion years when our sun fizzles out. Astrophysicists say the iron in our blood came from the iron at the core of a star before it exploded into a nova. The ensuing nebula, remnants of that nova, through billions of years, gradually created the conditions for the birth of our solar system, and eventually the planets and their moons. The life-force we call evolution took care of the rest.
-
Thus, Man’s origin began with fireworks of galactic proportions, a blast whose light heralded our birth across thousands of light years to the outer reaches of the Universe. Our souls and the Universe are therefore intertwined. It is only fitting that we know it more intimately, and He who made it and us with it. Our perspective, how we view and dialogue with the Universe, is the key to this synergy between Man and the Universe.
-
Perspective is Power
-
perspective is power
what you see becomes what you are
vision is wisdom
blindness is ignorance
-
A laborer sees only the trees. A CEO sees only the entire forest. An astronaut sees only the entire Earth. But the visionary sees beyond time and space. A child sees through the mist in his innocence and simplicity that adults cannot see. Perspective and vision defines what we are, our way of life, our thinking. Perspective is power. Vision is wisdom and virtue.
-
Seeing beyond the stars is the same. A stone-age Neanderthal who had no idea what the stars were is very different from a child of today who has seen fantastic Hubble photos of galaxies and nebulas. The first time you see a close up of the Milky Way (see below), it is as if you are there in outer space and it is a fantastic feeling. You become part of what you see. What you see becomes what you are. Consciousness and perspective transcends time and space, but only if you look with your innermost soul. Then can you see forever.

All items in red are clickable links if you want more details. A fantastic jumble of young blue star clusters, gigantic glowing gas clouds, and imposing dark dust lanes surrounds the central region of the active galaxy Centaurus A. This mosaic of Hubble Space Telescope images taken in blue, green, and red light has been processed to present a natural color picture of this cosmic maelstrom. Infrared images from the Hubble have also shown that hidden at the center of this activity are what seem to be disks of matter spiraling into a black hole with a billion times the mass of the Sun! Centaurus A itself is apparently the result of a collision of two galaxies and the left over debris is steadily being consumed by the black hole. Astronomers believe that such black hole central engines generate the radio, X-ray, and gamma-ray energy radiated by Centaurus A and other active galaxies. But for an active galaxy Centaurus A is close, a mere 10 million light-years away, and is a relatively convenient laboratory for exploring these powerful sources of energy.

The Vastness of the Universe
-
Astronomers say our sun is but a speck among some 200 to 400 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy. If one star is one grain of sand, a great portion of the Sahara Desert would represent our galaxy.
-
The diameter of the Milky Way is about 100,000 light years or 1 million trillion kilometers away. Since our sun is in the outer rim of the galaxy, if we travel today, year 2010, to the center of the galaxy at the speed of light or about 1,156 trillion kilometers per hour without getting a speeding ticket, we would reach the center at year 102,010, a period longer than the entire history of Mankind.

All items in red are clickable links if you want more details. This is the ultraviolet version. Andromeda is the closest galaxy to our own Milky Way, at a distance of some 2.5 million light-years. It is spiral just like Milky Way but larger, with about a trillion stars in its grip. It has an array of awesome surrealistic nebulae seen only with the advent of space telescopes like the Hubble. This stunning vista represents the highest resolution image ever made of the Andromeda Galaxy (aka M31) at ultraviolet wavelengths. Recorded by NASA’s Swift satellite, the mosaic is composed of 330 individual images covering a region 200,000 light-years wide. It shows about 20,000 sources, dominated by hot, young stars and dense star clusters that radiate strongly in energetic ultraviolet light.

Let us go a step further. The Milky Way is just a tiny dot among the 100 billion galaxies in the so-called ‘observable Universe’. Our nearest neighbor, the larger Andromeda galaxy has about a trillion stars. If we assume an average of a trillion stars per galaxy in the 100 billion galaxies, we come up with a 100 billion trillion stars in the ‘observable Universe’. For the sake of understanding this vastness, we can compare this to the grains of sand in a million Sahara Deserts.
-
One more step. We have no idea about the size of the unknown or ‘un-observable Universe’. It could be ten times or a million times of the ‘observable Universe’. Also, our Universe is but one among many Universes, the so-called ‘Multiverse’, according to an emerging scientific theory which defies proof and the laws of known physics.
-
The Vastness of the Human Mind
-
Now that we have an idea of cosmic vastness, we see how tiny and puny we are. The Earth is a mere electron in an atom if we reduce the known Universe to the size of the solar system. Man is just a speck in a Universe so vast and incomprehensible. Our brain is perhaps a billion trillion times smaller than our galaxy.
-
Yet, consciousness is the total equalizer because it transcends time and space. By seeing the above pictures, the vastness of the Universe can be contained in the human mind, which is therefore just as vast. Physical vastness is complemented by and contained within metaphysical vastness. Size matters, yes, but so does the mind that sees the size. “I think, therefore I am” is complemented by “I see, therefore I am what I see”. As stargazers, we are now part of the vast cosmos. Our minds are just as cosmic as the cosmos. When we see galaxies colliding in slow motion, or even just simulating them in a computer model, we witness creation-in-process. We bow down to the Creator who made such splendor and vastness.
-
Man’s Expanding View of the Unfolding Universe
-
It took thousands of years for Man to come up with his present-day perspective of the Universe. Let us go quickly through that evolution of perspective. First, we saw the Earth as flat and if we went to the edge, there was an ‘abyss’. How totally naïve. Second, we realized that the Earth was round and the sun, moon and stars revolved around Earth. How totally narcissistic. Third, we saw that it is not them that revolved around us but us which revolved around them, a dramatic reversal of perspective.
-
Fourth, by the end of the 19th century, we saw that our solar system was a mere speck in a galaxy of some 400 billion stars. Fifth, we realized there are 100 billion other galaxies. As our perspective expanded rapidly due to a storm of technological milestones, so did our view of ourselves becoming smaller and smaller but wiser and wiser. New theories evolved rapidly – the big bang that has happened repeatedly, dark matter and energy, other Universes or ‘multiverses’. In all this, there is always the ‘abyss’ of the unknown and un-observable, the limits of our consciousness. But, it is interesting to note that at every step, our expanding perspective had a profound effect on our awareness of what we are as part of this vast reality. We know more of what we are by simply being star gazers and reaching out to the fringes of the known Universe.
-
From Physical to Metaphysical Evolution
-
A French Jesuit philosopher, Teilhard de Chardin, a paleontologist and geologist by profession, came up with a revolutionary perspective describing the unfolding of the Universe. He began by describing the intricate and complex divergence of physical evolution from the amoeba to Man spanning hundreds of millennia. But at the emergence of Man, the birth of consciousness became a milestone, a massive super-nova explosion. There was a sudden shift from physical to metaphysical evolution.
-
It is no longer just cells evolving, but consciousness evolving, or group of minds evolving. Because of the power of the mind to influence and share with other minds, there is a continuing and compounding evolution. We benefit from the light bulb we use today, invented a century ago. We benefit from the wisdom of the rest of humanity before us – electricity, cars, computers. Evolution of consciousness is cumulative. Group consciousness and the meeting of many minds is a powerful catalyst to the speed of metaphysical evolution. It is self-propelled and has its own inner energy.
-
Technological progress becomes faster and more frenzied through time in a geometric progression similar to population explosion. This is because there are now, say, 10,000 scientists working over cumulative wisdom of centuries while a century ago, there were only 1,000 scientists working on lesser cumulative knowledge. Today, cosmic consciousness is reaching a climax, an explosion, an asymptotic curve approaching infinity.
-
The ships that opened up the New World, the trains that opened up the American West, the first landing at the moon, the first Hubble photos – all these catalyzed divergence of cultures and consciousness.
-
Chardin predicts that all this will result in a convergence of consciousness. This is clearly manifested by the Internet, which links and unites the entire planet into one vast homogenous communication network, similar to one super-blackhole at the center of our galaxy have 400 billion star in its grip in a fantastic spiral pattern. All of a sudden, we are all in touch. The entire library of ever expanding knowledge is at our fingertips at the click of a mouse, triggered by a mere search-word from a bedroom. Never before has Man achieved such awesome power in the realm of consciousness. Cyberspace has become the planetary rallying point for Man’s consciousness imploding.
-
Christo-genesis
-
For non-believers, the buck stops here. For Christians, we are just beginning. Chardin poses the ultimate Christian perspective, one of the most profound spiritual insights of contemporary philosophy. He says that the end point of this convergence of consciousness is Christ. In the entire evolution of consciousness, all paths converge in Him, Creator of the Universe. Chardin says the Universe is in truth Christo-centric. Christ is the Alpha as creator of the Universe, and the Omega as the end point this convergence of consciousness. The unfolding of the mysteries of the Universe is a continuing never-ending endeavor of Man in search of himself and his Creator.

FOOTNOTES ON THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE

THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE
Catalyzing an explosion of cosmic information
By Bernie Lopez
-
The birth of space telescopes, pioneered by the famous Hubble, ushered in for the first time in his history, an explosion within the consciousness of Man of an awareness of the far reaches of the vast cosmos.
-
Among NASA’s three other space observatories, the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, and the Spitzer Space Telescope, only the fourth, the Hubble Space Telescope, is serviceable by Space Shuttle astronauts, that is why its instruments are continuously upgraded and repaired to be always the latest and the best.
-
HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOS
-
Although early scientists in the late 19th century already knew of the galaxies around us, it was not until Hubble transmitted from outer space high resolution full color photos of our Milky Way Galaxy and neighboring Andromeda that we saw them for the first time in awesome detail. The ‘forest’ of nebulae in Andromeda, for example, are of particular interest because of their stunning rendition of gas clouds which are remnants of novas or exploding stars. With the Hubble, the first photos of the distant edges of the observable Universe were taken.
-
Before the birth of space telescopes, the best and largest land-based telescopes like Palomar failed to show such dramatic details because of atmospheric haze, which is present even in the clearest cloudless skies. The absence of this haze in outer space was the perfect setting for space-based telescopes like Hubble and other succeeding ones.
-
High resolution photos of faint faraway objects are taken with absolute clarity using exposures of up to 45 minutes per image. These mosaic images are integrated, having cumulative exposures of about 38 hours per filter. Hundreds of half-hour exposures are added up to make a long exposure, something that conventional photography cannot do.
-
Space telescopes have recorded dramatic events like a gigantic meteor slamming into Jupiter, close ups of its blue polar auroras, nebulae of strange surrealistic sizes and shapes, distant galaxies colliding with each other, etc.
-
RAPID EVOLUTION IN COSMOLOGICAL RESEARCH
-
Aside from dramatic photos, there are unprecedented leaps and bounds in space research. April 25, 1990 was the historic day for cosmology, the study of the Universe, with the first ever deployment of the Hubble space telescope. From then on, Hubble space missions triggered an avalanche of data in cosmological research. Milestone after milestone advanced the study of the Universe. What would have taken decades of research, is taking a mere few months because of the ability of the Hubble to document distant cosmic phenomena.
-
For example, photos of so-called binaries in the Kuiper Belt were a scientific milestone by telling us about the birth and evolution of solar systems. Studies in ‘dark energy’ were enhanced by dramatic photos of ‘dust free’ supernovae (SNe Ia). Star formation histories were derived from photos of dwarf galaxies. Surveys of luminous infrared galaxies and stalled nebulae before the birth of planets gave Man new insights never before achieved.
-
THE ROLE OF THE INTERNET
-
Not only were there rapid scientific advances, their dissemination into the mainstream was massive and global through the Internet. High school students had access to the same awesome high-resolution Hubble photos used by advanced science. There are today websites with huge libraries of photos of the Universe that can be downloaded by anyone from children to doctorate students to housewives and ordinary citizens. This massive proliferation in itself contributes to the rapid evolution of consciousness described in the main article, as expounded by Jesuit philosopher Teilhard de Chardin.

I heard again from a Belgian colleague of my husband who had cancer. Before I mentioned that she had requested the healing oil because she cannot sleep from the cancer therapy she is getting. Since that time she has been using it. Now she is back from her travel from Turkey. She said since that time she has applied the oil, she has no problem anymore. She has no pain. She is very happy and overjoyedl ! She was given sick leave till first week of November but this week she is back to work. Thank you Lord for the healing! I am also very sad to read that so many people-children are sick of LEUKEMIA. I pray for them too. I remember the anguish and tremendous psychological misery I underwent when I had cancer more than 25 years ago! Don’t lose hope. The Lord and the Blessed Mother are always there. Thank you also for the psychological healing of my family (my sister and her son are on speaking terms again). He stayed in her house when he came home from abroad. He opened up his problem. Sana tuloy tuloy na ito. Please pray also for the Filipino Legion of Mary in Brussels for the continuance of their work. They have conflicts and one member told the group she is backing out. It is demoralizing. The others stopped attending meetings for one reason to another. But they did great works. Let there be also healing among them! Thank you Sister Raquel, Bro. Bernie and all the prayer warriors!

I just want to inform you that the healing oil has been helping my niece and nephew. they tend to have muscle pains and aches that they themselves (8 and 9 years old are the ones asking for the healing oil and we pray at the same time while applying the healing oil) have strong belief. I am so happy that they are indeed children of god. Also, may I request to pray for my friend Conchita R. who is going for a breast cancer operation on Monday Oct 13; 2010. Please pray for her successful operation and fast recovery. God bless!

I have two prayer requests this evening. Frank has very bad lungs (capacity under 40% at present) and right now is also fighting a very bad throat infection too. He needs the healing power of Jesus and i pray for a complete healing on Frank. Ken has leg problems. Ken’s leg is oozing fluids again, bad enough to leave a puddle when he sit for and hour or two. Biggest problem is the danger of infection and he doesn’t want to end up on IV antibiotic drip in the hospital again. Please place both Frank and Ken on your prayer lists. Both men try their best to live christian lifestyles and need our prayers very badly. I’ve witnessed many wonderful healings through the healing power of Jesus. Please join me in prayer Our Lord will heal both of these men. Thank you,

Hi all friends
I am asking for prayers for the operation of my husband BAYANI on Friday, Oct 22, in the National Kidney Institute for a distended bladder and for his left kidney (either extraction or blasting of stones). I am also asking for prayers for the doctor, Jesus Benjamin M, M.D, who will operate on Bay. Bayani is 68 years old. He had a prostate operation in May, which took 8 hospitalizations of one to two weeks each because of post catheterization infection, which meant we were out of hospitals only by mid-August. And now we’re back to hospital (check in on Thursday; operation on Friday). Thank you for prayers, we need lots of prayers for successful operation and all.

Good morning to all the payer warriors.
Please help us pray for the complete healing of my 17 year old nephew, Lavern Mike C who is an autistic child, deaf and mute. He also had an epilepsy last October 31, 2010. Please, help us pray that he will be cured from epilepsy and he will become a normal child so he can go to school. Please help us pray also for his mother, Judilyn C, sometimes she even wanted to commit suicide due to her problems about his only autistic son. She and his husband cannot even afford to buy Lavern’s medicines and they don’t have money to buy food and other immediate needs because his husband lost his job. Please, please, help us pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort this couple. Please help us pray also that Nestor can find another job immediately. Thank you all so much and May the Lord Almighty bless us all.

Matagal po akong nakalimot sa inyo, Lord… Ngayon sa aking pinagdaraanan ay lumalapit po ako sa inyo uli at humingi nang inyong awa Tulungan po ninyo akong magkaroon nang kapayaan ng kalooban, puso at isip…. Sana po ay bigyan ninyo ako nang sapat na talino, lakas at tibay nang loob na malagpasan ko po ang aking mga pinagdadaanan.. Alam ko po na maliit lang ito kumpara sa ibang taong may mas malalaking dinadala … pero nagsusumamo po sa inyong pagpapagaling muli nang aking kaluluwa at paglilinis nang aking puso… Gusto ko po sanang maging mas malapit sa inyo at magkaroon nang pagkakataong makapaglingkod din sa inyo Maraming salamat po Lord sa lahat nang inyong biyaya…
