“SOARING FLIGHTS (Part I)”

Wisdom is the scholar of knowledge, the wandering enlightenment that renounces all that is sordid to a virtuous path; and where Eastern Philosophies proclaim honor to the torches of truth, a disbandment of the world’s inherited gloom.

Is it not so that every religious path has its own logics that vial on the hearts of many tongues?

Love is not winterborn but a heat of an infectious affection demonstrated in brotherhood and goodwill. The Buddha effect is one that has ignited into a mastered teaching of love and can be witnessed in the discipleship of Christ; both are disciplines of love, practiced through acts of kind deeds.

Being mystified that winged Angels are spirited messengers of God, leads to an interesting query: what are man’s holy heights? And what is levitation if not an earthly release of oneself, as experienced by Sadhus, Saints and thru the witnessings of heavenly encounters?

Heart branchings may be a far reach beyond the physical sense well into “Samadhi”, which is a crossover from the physical realm into the spiritual realm of life.

Understanding Samadhi as a practice that has a firm faith in God, clearly incorporates the platform of releasing oneself from the cares in an untrusting and evil world.

The disciplines of Samadhi have extended into other practices such as the barefeet fire walkers ( walking on burning hot coals) of India and the Middle East. If through faith man can walk on hot coals, there should be no reason why man cannot muster up the courage and faith to walk on water.

Faith is man’s undernourished, rarely-used vehicle. Understanding the power of faith through documented historical practices and proofs, man may one day understand that together, faith-filled people can walk over the spiritual fires in this world.

Through the doors of prayer and meditation comes clarity which stem from focusing on loving thoughts, that feed deep within the hearts and mind of every hungry soul.

Song praises to God come in many creative vibratory formats including chants and hymns. But all are praises and sensory fine-tunings, in hope to spiritually connect with God.

The gospeled faith that Man will Resurrect into God’s eternity, is an imparted Biblical Truth which far exceeds Man’s present life, and resolves the questionings of after life, while making void the ideas of reincarnation.

Man can and will be born again, but only through the everlasting life, upheld through Christ.

Viking Pirate-

and, especially you,

the conductor that directs a delving sequence from sunrise into distorted maskings of the protagonistic moon,

up and around a boastful sea where mistful clouds fall into a burst of thrushing blue, thunderous tides.

Propelling from your cabin wheelhouse you climb through a stormy horizon, a roaring cyclonic turbulence. The struggle resolves into a bathing getaway;

compassed recourses are a blowing that choruses a laying down of notes. You are like an oceanic bird.

It is a clear prevaling when military bugles pulsate your victory call, commemorating you with duo chords of cello calms;

cheering cries from french horns amplify into a strident interplay of solemn, echoing violins;

the unwaywardness of sounds swing into a crewing medley;

Your seaward reflections are a brassing of infactuations, and a strategic invite for a sea dance;

“Mineral Bath Springs of Italy”

Natural Thermal Baths Near Rome

Natural Hot Springs Are Italy’s Best-kept Secret

BY ANDREA ROMANO

Italy, and Tuscany in particular, is peppered with natural hot springs rich in minerals that have been used by people since the ancient Romans for their health and beauty benefits.

But one hot spring, found amid the hills of Maremma, is actually one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Cascate del Mulino is just off the beaten path and away from most tourists radars.

Centuries of waterfalls, have carved the rocks into beautifully round pools. Locals like to come and soak year-round, especially since the waters stay luxuriously warm at 37.5°C, or about 99.5°F.

Beer Differences (Part 1)

Everything you need to know about the different types of beer but were too afraid to ask

Angela Johnson

Beer is broken up into a few different categories. Reuters/Yves Herman
  • Beer is made up of a combination of water, grain, yeast, and hops.
  • The type of yeast that is used in one of the major distinguishing factors between the different styles of beers.

Summer is officially here, which means it’s perfectly acceptable to drink outside again. Whether you’re at a backyard barbecue or a baseball game, beer is often the drink of choice when the temps heat up. And what’s not to love? It’s cold, refreshing, and (usually) cheap. But with all of the different styles on the market, ordering a simple cerveza can get confusing if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

A list of beers on tap at a bar can give you all kinds of anxiety. And without someone there to explain it all, you throw up your hands and order a Long Island Iced Tea instead. But fear not, we’ve decoded the differences between some of the most common types of beers so you can have a little more confidence the next time you want to order a cold one (or two).

All beers contain a combination of water, grain, yeast, and hops — the plant that preserves the beer and gives it its unique flavor. The distinguishing factor between the different types is how they are brewed, which affects the look and taste. Lagers and ales are different varieties that fall under the larger beer umbrella. In fact, IPAs are a subcategory of ales (more on that later).

Lager

Lager is the most common style of beer. It’s name comes from the German word, “lagern,” which means “to store.” Lagers are made with bottom-fermenting yeast, and are left in cooler temperatures (45-55 degrees Fahrenheit) for weeks while the fermentation process takes place.

Lagers tend to have a light, crisp taste and a smooth, well-balanced flavor. They are often less bitter than other styles of beers. If you had to compare beer to wine, lager would be more similar to white wine. Pilsners and malt liquor are different styles within the lager category. Many of the most common brands of beer such as Heineken, Sapporo, and Budweiser can be classified as lagers. Lagers pair well with shellfish, grilled chicken or pork, and Mexican food.

Ales

Ales typically have a thick layer of foam at the top.Foursquare via njwineandbeer

Ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeast. Fermentation takes place in warm temperatures (between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit), which speeds up the process. For this reason, ales don’t have to be stored for long periods of time.

The yeast rises to the top during fermentation, and as a result, ales generally have a thick layer of foam (also known as the beer head) at the top.

The flavor of an ale tends to be more complex than that of lagers. They also tend to have a fruitier taste. Ales are more comparable to red wines. Ales pair well with burgers, Asian food, and pizza.

IPA

There are three styles of IPAs. quite peculiar/Flickr

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and this is definitely true in the case of the IPA. India pale ale was invented by a London-based brewer for English troops stationed in India.

India’s warm climate was not ideal for making beer, and English brews would not survive the six-month journey journey at sea. So in the late 1700s, George Hodgson exported a strong pale ale to Englishmen in India. He added extra hops and increased the alcohol content, which helped preserve the beer over the long journey. The soldiers even claimed it had a better taste. IPAs gained popularity in the United States in the 1970s.

There are three styles of IPAs – American, English, and Double/Imperial. And while they don’t all taste the same, IPAs are often described as bitter. They pair well with spicy, salty, and grilled foods.

Consider your perfect spa retreat] in a location where mineral-rich spring water (and sometimes seawater is used to give medicinal baths. Spa towns or spa resorts (including) hot springs (resorts) typically offer various health treatments, which are also known as balneotherapy.

The belief in the curative powers of mineral waters goes back to prehistoric times. Such practices have been popular worldwide, but are especially widespread in Europe and Japan.

The visual characteristics that may be observed in a beer are colour, clarity, and nature of the head. Colour is usually imparted by the malts used, notably the adjunct malts added to darker beers, though other ingredients may contribute to the colour of some styles such as fruit beers. Colour intensity can be measured by systems such as EBC,SRM or Lovibond, but this information is rarely given to the public.

Many beers are transparent, but some beers, such as hefeweizen, may be cloudy due to the presence of yeast making them translucent. A third variety is the opaque or near-opaque colour that exists with stouts, porters, schwarzbiers(black beer) and other deeply coloured styles. Thickness and retention of the head and the lace it can leave on the glass, are also factors in a beer’s appearance.
