Cuba

Cuban president says he will attend papal masses during Francis’s vist to Cuba in September.

I read all the speeches of the pope, his commentaries, and if the pope continues this way, I will go back to praying and go back to the church, and I’m not joking,” he said.

It was a startling assertion for the leader of a Communist country. “I am from the Cuban Communist Party, that doesn’t allow [religious] believers, but now we are allowing it, it’s an important step,” Mr. Castro said.

Mr. Castro stepped up his praise on Pope Francis’ push for the two nations (US and Cuba) to put enmity aside and work for reconciliation for the benefit of Americans and Cubans. [US – Cuba Relations]

Mr. Castro told reporters that “we are trying to carry forward improvements of our political, social and cultural system.” [Economic Reform: #FreeMarketEconomyForNations. Political Reform: #DemocracyForNations ]

 

The World of Religion & Spirituality: A Starter Booklist For The Curious Mind

Eschatology / End Times / Second Coming

“Christ … will reign for a Thousand years.” (Book of Revelation)

“… He (Christ) ascended into heaven … He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. … We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.”

More Books on Religion & Spirituality

Reading the following books, you might end up discovering something profound (e.g., ‘There is a spiritual world beyond our material universe’; ‘Life doesn’t end once we die, but our Consciousness live on’), something that would completely change you, your outlook towards life.
A note of caution: Do not assume each and every concept and idea presented in these books to be “absolute truths”.
Explore yourself. This list is a good starting point.

Meditation, Mindfulness & Positive Psychology 

The most important endowment humans are blessed with is “Consciousness”.
Being in control of Consciousness and directing it toward the right purpose is key to health, wealth and most importantly, happiness and satisfaction.
So anything that hampers the ability of being in control of our consciousness is harmful (e.g., drinking alcohol damages our ability of judgement).
And anything that aids us (e.g., Meditation, Mindfulness, Yoga, Deep breathing) is good and highly recommended.
Here are some Introductory Books for exploration.

“Pope Francis visited one of Naples’ most violent and drug-infested neighbourhoods on Saturday and urged residents not to let organised crime and corrupt politicians rob them of hope.

The blighted area has often been the battleground of Camorra clans fighting each other for control of drug trafficking and extortion rackets.

“See to it that evil is not the last word. It (the last word) has to be hope,” he told.

Francis listened to a Filipino immigrant woman and an unemployed Italian man tell of their difficulties.

Francis defended immigrants. He called for just wages for workers, and railed against corruption in public life.”

[Pope prays at Pompeii sanctuary]

The loving nature of God

 

God is loving – just as Jesus described.

God is never angry.

Whenever anger and destruction are manifested – it doesn’t come “directly” from God – it’s evil or “filtered through” evil.

Curse is evil. Causing harm (of any form) is not the way of God.

 

 

God thinks in longer term. God thinks “in whole”.

To maintain law and order – rules, regulations and controls are necessary.

But when one looks at life on Earth from a spiritual plane, life appears momentary.

In longer term and ultimately, love and goodness triumphs.

Kingdom Of God

Kingdom of God

My task is to establish “Kingdom of God” on Earth and retain the Kingdom until the World ends – as the prophesied Messiah is supposed to fulfill.

What is the “Kingdom of God”?  #KingdomOfGod
Kingdom of God is what the World would have been like, If God ruled over the World.

Human Kingdoms lack Justice and Peace. So establishing Justice and Peace are among priorities.

  • Freeing the World of crimes (of all forms)
  • Eradication of Diseases and Disabilities and Sufferings
  • Filling every human soul with satisfaction and happiness
  • Uniting Humanity

are among our Ultimate goals.

A Look Back At History

Chittagong [1], being a Port City, became settlement for many Arabs and other people from the Middle East in the Medieval Period.

There weren’t Modern Aircraft in those days, like the ones we have today. So one couldn’t fly to places!

Ships were the means for long distance travel. Port Cities were thriving centers of trade and commerce.

Many religious preachers followed traders.

And when one travels by ship, the Journey spans months.

So it’s no more like: going to a place in a day’s journey, getting things done and then returning the next day.

The Journey spanned months and many looked for permanent settlements.

Things were a lot different back then …

From Wikipedia: “A Sufi shrine in Chittagong, dating back to 850 AD, is dedicated to the Bayazid.[6] While there is no recorded evidence of his visit to the region, Chittagong was a major port on the southern silk route connecting India, China and the Middle East, and the first Muslims to travel to China may have used the Chittagong-Burma-Sichuan trade route. Chittagong was a center of Sufism and Muslim merchants in the subcontinent since the 9th century, and it is plausible that either Bayazid or his followers visited the port city around the middle of the 9th century.”

Pope Francis’s Message To Mafia: Stop Doing Evil

“Pope Francis has launched a stinging attack on the mafia, warning gangsters that they will go to hell unless they repent and stop doing evil. 

“Blood-stained money, blood-stained power, you can’t bring it with you to your next life. Repent,” he said. 

He was speaking at a prayer vigil for relatives of those killed by the mafia. 

The vigil was filled with those who have suffered at the hands of the mafia, including people whose family members and loved ones had been killed. 

“This life that you live now won’t give you pleasure. It won’t give you joy or happiness,” he said.

“There’s still time to not end up in hell, which is what awaits you if you continue on this path.”

Views on Marriage

[11.24.14]

  • Same sex Marriage: Against.

Can’t produce offspring.
It’s abnormality. It’s like someone born with defects, disabilities.


We’ll establish Medical / Psychiatric ways of dealing with them; turning someone abnormal into “what is normal / natural”.

 

  • Birth Control: “Seems OK”.

Think from this perspective:

Consider, human history and its progression into the future – as being planned out by God. [Everything is related to everything else. The present state and condition of Human Society is the result of what has happened in the past.]

God will make sure that His plans – the best for “humanity as a whole” – are ful-filled – “at the right time”.

So if something is not appropriate for “humanity as a whole” at this “point of time”, then God will make sure that – we do not walk that path.

So, if birth control is not OK “for the time” – then events would unfold in such a manner that we cannot adopt it in our society.

Rely on God.

[

“Consider: human history and its progression into the future – as being planned out by God.

Everything is related to everything else. The present state and condition of Human Society is the result of what has happened in the past.”

Jesus’s teachings were different from those of Moses in many respects.

Try to explain it from this perspective:

Moses’s teachings were appropriate for His time and place and His people, while Jesus’s teachings were appropriate for His time and place and His people.

And that doesn’t mean that, Moses’s teachings are not appropriate for the present time.

Contemplate, how Moses’s teachings have changed and shaped thousands of years of Jewish and Christian history and how those teachings will shape our future.

And how Jesus’s teachings have changed and shaped two thousands years of Christian history and how those teachings will shape our future.

Now, consider this:

The World we live in today – is the result of what has happened in those thousands of years and what happens now – will shape our future.

And if the “whole human history” is planned by God and Divinity, then whatever has happened – has significance, whatever has happened – has shaped the world we live in today.]

  • Abortion: “Doesn’t seem OK”.

Very close to killing a human life.

 

  • Divorce:

In Heaven, you live with your Soul-mate. So there is no divorce – you do not even think of it.

That’s why Jesus in His teachings, taught us never to think of “divorce”.

Our Earthly Human society is yet to reach that point – where a guide would show each of us – his / her true Soul-mate. [Sometime in the future.]

[Jesus’s teachings were teachings for a “heavenly society” (or “Kingdom of God”) – He warned us not only to refrain from “committing” sins, but also not even “think” of sins (committing sins in heart).

As we move forward in time, Human Society would ultimately reach that destination. #KingdomOfGod ]
