Tending Our Garden Can Be Spiritual
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. - November 13, 2020
Tending your garden can be mystical as well as magical, and mythical.
Dr Boni Commandate (ACA), the famous inventor of the Sleeping Fish, and invited by then Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in Malacañang Palace where he was provided with a business partner to pursue his experiments, is made even more famous by Nature spirits in his Garden that visit him every now and then, even leaving marks in his plants.
The latest spirit manifested through the clump from the yellow spots is a dwarf named narrazi according to his Babaylan friend. As a scientist, Dr Boni likewise conduct experiments on water and plants using our Babaylan dialect, which he performs in class as well as in huge gatherings (I remembered he was here before a huge gathering coming from all across the archipelago at the Ynarez Stadium in Antipolo).
Dr Boni used to be interviewed by Mel Changco, other channels, and in the radio about his ocean sanctuary at the Siliman University in Dumaguete.
He preferred not to sell the patents of his discovery to many interested foreign buyers. Instead, he managed and owned a sanctuary with his Japanese partner in Daan Bantayan in Cebu.
Impressed by his works, a landed native gave him a big island which he visits every now and then, an Island which is also named after him.
By taking care of his plants daily, Dr Boni is indeed one guy that has opened a portal to another dimension of life and existence.
Dr Boni also lectures at ASI's doctoral program on Applied Cosmic Anthropology; a Senior lecturer at University of the Philippines-Los Baños' Dept of Anthropology; and Guest Lecturer at UP Diliman.
The 6th Greatest Commandment: Love the Spirits
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. - November 14, 2020
The sixth greatest commandment is to love the spirits. Spirits are energy waves that take different levels and forms of vibration. While unseen, they share the same space with us and could be everywhere around us. They could be in our homes passing by. Some stay with us to protect and guide us. We can show our love to them by always being conscious of their presence.
Be friendly with the Spirits in Nature!

Spirits are our indispensable partners in life. The Cosmos is not complete without them.
While spirits are undetectable to our ordinary senses, there are so many individuals who can.
Spirits have always been with us. The Book of Genesis (1:1-2) says: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
And spirits exist in all living creatures, including the animals, insects, bacteria, plants, trees, forests, caves, rivers, oceans, and in our atmosphere as well in the air, fire, clay of earth, and water that nourish and sustain us daily.
Hippocrates had already told us: “The soul is the same in all living creatures although the body of each is different.”
Let us continue to show our respect to our invisible spirits by always being aware of their presence, whatever form they take. This is the sixth greatest commandment. Our total transformation and that of our society cannot be complete without including them in whatever we aspire, plan, and do.
Souls, Spirits, and Aliens

All Souls Day, All Saints Day: Is this the same as All ETs and All Aliens Day?
While many religious people believe in souls and saints, science also believes in Aliens or Extra-terrestrials. Could these beings or entities be the same?
In fact, these supernatural beings are portrayed as winged, living in another dimension parallel to ours or riding on what ancient theorists call "chariots of the gods and goddesses." They also perform similar functions and roles.
(1) Agents or Messengers. Imagine yourself about to board a bus or plane but suddenly pulled by a strong inexplicable force to back off, only to learn through the media that the bus or plane you were about to board met an accident a few kilometers away. Strange? Weird? No!
(2) Educators. They teach us the basic knowledge and skills of living productively and spiritually in society. The Book of Enoch describes a vast number of angels and archangels who taught him almost everything there is to be known, like meteorology, cosmology, astronomy, farming, plant cultivation, animal breeding, and metalwork.
(3) Watchers and Saviors of earthlings. They continue to watch over us protect and save us from impending dangers.
Dwarves are real. We coexist with them.

We carry this belief with us here in the US by giving them a space in our little garden in the backyard.
I remember my grandson telling us that ghosts are real. I grew up in a rural community that until now believes in the existence of ghosts, dwarves, and elves. So we encourage him to describe what he saw. His description fits that of a tiny dwarf.
These mythical and diminutive beings are everywhere around us. We know exactly where they live, usually in protruding boulders, in gigantic, century-old trees, in deserted caves, or near rivers and streams.
Asked what his invisible friend is doing, my grandson said that he is in the swimming pool with us and admonished us not to go to a specific spot for we might bump into him.
We protect their abode and respect their presence, greeting them especially at night. They in turn protect and respect us. We’ve learned to live and mingle with them peacefully, respecting our respective spaces while sharing the same pasture and abundance of Nature.
We also believe in "engkantos" or fairies that's why we provide them with their own little abode in the other end of the garden. Not to be outdone, our dog Mocha wanted also an area where she could play with her invisible mates. Her wish was our command and we gave her the center.
Is the world of dwarves, elves, goblins, trolls, fairies, leprechauns and other mythical creatures real and true? Or, is it just a product of our wild imaginations and fantasy? If it is not real, can we also say the same thing in the invisible world of atoms and declare that they are just a product of wild imaginations?
I know that their existence cannot be proven theoretically and empirically by the laws of physics, logic, and causality. But, yes, I believe in their existence. They are as real as we are.
