The Global Energy Parliament held its 10th annual session on the "New Normal for the Post-Covid World" on June 26. More than 100 members from 20 nations joined the online event as Members of Parliament, Distinguished Guests and Observers. GEP-10 was presided by Dr. C.V. Ananda Bose as the Speaker of Parliament.
The Minister for Tourism, Govt of Kerala, inaugurated the session by sharing the Government’s priorities for the Post-Covid World. “Now is the opportunity to create a better future, a new era of peace, harmony, health, happiness and sustainability,” he said. “I have great respect for Jagadguru Swami Isa’s leadership in piloting a more humane system of education, through his Education for Total Consciousness and the holistic view of science through the I-Theory.”
Mr. Alphons Kannanthanam, Member of Parliament and former Minister for Tourism, Govt of India was the Distinguished Guest. He shared the Govt of India’s priorities for the Post-Covid World: to be self-sufficient, create a farm-centric economy, ensure that basic human needs are met, use traditional medicines and yoga for immunity, and balance health and wealth. He promised to take the suggestions made by the GEP to the Parliament of India.
His Holiness Jagadguru Swami Isa, Founder of the Global Energy Parliament, tasked the Members to focus on developing measures to help humanity in the post-pandemic era to achieve the “human goals of peace and happiness by ensuring sustainable health and wealth. Wealth concerns balance in the outer world. Health concerns balance in the inner world," he said. "Health depends upon developing and sharing positive emotions, positive thoughts and positive food. Wealth requires effort to maintain harmony in the outer five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Liquid and Space). Both health and wealth must be maintained for peace and happiness.”
Swami Isa shared his scientific insights into the causes of the Coronavirus, especially in context of the I-Theory. “Humans have rearranged the natural world, and now they are starting to rearrange genes. We are suffering from a pandemic now because of this…. In the case of Covid-19, genetic engineering increases the force-particles, the bosons, in this virus. Higher activity of bosons increases entropy, which is the force of destruction. In simple terms, this genetic engineering has led to massive destruction,” he said.
He also gave some specific advice for improving the present conditions. “In lockdown, individuals have suffered because they do not know how to maintain harmony in themselves and at home.
“Societies have seen the negative effects of lockdowns upon families and the emotional toll it takes on people. The solution for this is to set up homes around three positive activities: living, learning and producing. Each home should allow for new opportunities to learn. Likewise, they should implement that learning by having a garden and setting up a small natural production centre. Every house can make at least one product and sell it, using nature-sourced or home-grown materials, such as canned fruit or pickles, natural medicines, soap or paper bags. Groups of homes can form units and the local Governments can be tasked with distributing and the items and giving the income to the families. What the Earth produces is enough for humans, but most have forgotten this culture. Now we can re-learn it in our own homes and work together to share with the community as well as making a small means of economic support.”
He concluded by emphasizing that “Families should restructure their homes, Governments should support small neighbourhood natural production, and every individual should put more effort into maintaining the inner and outer balance.”
