Pukaw sa tuwa

BRING forth delight o pukawin ang tuwa ang tahasang katuturan ng mudra. It’s touching off happiness, well-being and a wholesome feeling right at your finger tips… the outmost physical extensions of the bodymind.



Mababawasan ang pagtunganga, bunganga, at todong katangahan sa gyan mudra—the mudra of knowledge. Pasubali: exempted sa bisa nito ang mga ipinanganak sa row 4 at talagang nawiwili sa pagpapakabobo… aba’y masayang umawit, “brain, brain go away… come again election day.”



Dulo ng hinlalaki at hintuturo ang pinagdidikit, bubuo ng bilog na puwang, nakaunat ang hinlalato, palasinsingan o dumalaga at hinliliit. Pampatalas ‘to ng isipan kaya akmang-akma sa mga gunggong na walang magawa sa buhay kundi tumanga na sanhi upang maging talamak ang katangahan… yeah, we define what we become in what we do... do nothing, you’re nothing.



Inaantig ng gyan mudra ang ductless pituitary and endocrine glands upang unti-unting mag-agas ng kanilang katas… para maapula, maampat, malunasan ang mga tinatawag na mental disorders, learning disabilities, depression o mga kapansanan sa isipan. Mas mainam kung haharap sa silangan, tig-45 minuto sa bawat tatlo o higit pang mudra meditations araw-araw.



An’tindi yata kung sasabakan ng push-ups habang nasa gyan mudra ang kamay… nasasanay sa mas malupit na gagap—clasping at, grasping of both objects and subjects. Indeed, the hand is mind’s cutting edge… at mabilis pa sa lintik ang kamay na ginigiyahan ng isipan. Hindi lang tatag ng pulso’t bisig ang nabibihasa sa ganitong push-ups na bahagi ng pagsasanay sa eagle’s claw technique… higit na nagiging matatag, masigla pati isip at lirip.



Oo nga pala, karaniwang sa kanang kamay isinasagawa ang mudra… para malaya ang kaliwang kamay upang maghalungkat sa anumang lungga at lungaw, pumindot-pindot-- well, print journalists are legitimate members of the press—sa tinatawag na Grafenberg spot, which is located about two inches deep at the anterior part of the mons pubis.



Pampalakas ng puso, pampawasto ng tibok nito, pampaalis ng hypertension (sapat na ang 15 minuto sa araw-araw) at pang-iwas din sa myocardial infarction or heart attack ang mudra ng puso—apana vayu mudra which also helps regulate the excretory system and reduce gastric problems… nakatuon ang hintuturo sa bundok ni Venus o ang matambok na puluhan ng hinlalaki, magkadikit ang mga dulo ng hinlalaki, hinlalato at palasinsingan.



Mudra ng bathala ng kayamanan ang nabubuo habang pigil ng kamay ang pluma sa pagsusulat… mas matindi nga ang bisa kung taimtim ang tuon ng isipan sa isinusulat, sapat ang 68 segundong todo tuon upang matupad ang kahilingan na isinaad sa sinusulat… sa giit nga ni Philip K. Dick, with such words of all-out intense focus, the fabric of reality is changed. What is sought is found; what is asked, given.



Kaya hinihiling po sa mga masugid na mambabasa nito, magsulat-kamay sa hatinggabi… buong taimtim na isulat sa papel, “Ipatikim sa Alberto Agra, kalipi’t kasabwat ang sinapit ng 57 katao sa Ampatuan, Maguindanao. Allahu Mumitu akbar!”



Pwe-he-he-he!

Every single cell of my body's happy

I got this one from Carmelite Sisters from whose school three of my kids were graduated from. They have this snatch of a song that packs a fusion metal and liebeslaud beat and whose lyrics go like this:

"Every single cell of my body is happy. Every single cell of my body is well. I thank you, Lord. I feel so good. Every single cell of my body is well."

Biology-sharp nerds would readily agree with me in this digression... Over their lifetimes, cells are assaulted by a host of biological insults and injuries. The cells go through such ordeals as infection, trauma, extremes of temperature, exposure to toxins in the environment, and damage from metabolic processes-- this last item is often self-inflicted and includes a merry motley medley of smoking a deck a day of Philip Morris menthols, drinking currant-flavored vodka or suds, overindulgence in red meat or the choicest fat-marbled cuts of poultry and such carcass.

When the damage gets to a certain point, cells self-destruct. T…

IT LOOKED eerie—a blaze of fireflies pulsing like stars in the nippy air, throbbing with mating passions. That show of lights somehow eased the shadows of a Holy Thursday night on a dry river bed a few kilometers trudge up Mount Makiling.

It’s likely that no river has lain in sleep for months on that moss-grown, boulder-strewn bed—except my 20-year old kid Kukudyu and I. We were out to spend the night, do on-site learning sessions by the next day. Usual father-and-son bonding. As the late Benjamin Franklin once begged: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

Past noon from the foot of the mountain’s northern section, it took us four hours ploughing non-stop through prickly bushes and forest undergrowth to get to that site. We got there in one bruised piece. By then, dusk was falling; the sylvan air hummed with a trill of crickets, cicadas, critters nameless in choral orison. That incessant “sh-r-r-e-eemmm---“ layered with “k-kr-r-eeengg--” …
