Dating Disasters – A Survival Guide

We’ve all been there – the disastrous date. Dating disasters come in all flavors – from spilling your meal all over your date to saying something you shouldn’t go running into (or blabbering about) your ex, to making a fool of yourself because you’ve had too much to drink.

Dating disasters can be sorted into two main groups. The “Help, I’m on a bad date and I got to get out of here” category, and the “I really like this person, but this is NOT going well” department. Take a look at some of the dating disasters that can occur during, before or after the date – and hope it never happens to you!

Car accident.

Breaking down on the way to pick up your date is one thing, but having a car crash and sustaining an injury would tell many people that you and your date simply were never meant to be together and that fate has stepped in.

A third person.

An unexpected friend of your date turning up is pretty hard to take. If you have met your date on one of the dating websites or via singles chat rooms, then this situation is pretty common for security reasons – but it still doesn’t make it any easier if you weren’t expecting it, a chaperone was never part of the plan.

Mixing up the time or date.

Oops! If you’re trying to make a good impression and accidentally stand your date up, you need to come up with a plan B, and pretty quickly. Hopefully, if they have a good sense of humor you will avoid having the door slammed in your face next time you see them.

Fashion suicide.

Natural Disasters: Experiencing And Dealing With Them

The count of natural disasters has increased majorly in the past few decades, with reports of these disasters being bigger and much worse than before. The main cause for concern isn’t global warming or the Nano weather effect here; it is more related to the fact that we keep on building in dangerous areas and we build carelessly, at least in the case of floods. The only thing that we can do is to predict these disasters, take steps to minimize the damage and make the economy stronger to deal with displacement and rehabilitation. This article discusses the different aspects of relief and rehabilitation in conjunction with the aftermath.

Human beings are not meant to physically struggle against nature and its wrath. However, we do possess higher intellect than other species in the animal kingdom and hence, we can fight nature mentally, by planning ahead and using our cunning to avoid the bad side of nature. In a lot of ways, the natural disasters that now hit the earth are a consequence of man abusing his intellect and power over nature and nature just lashing out in return. It is not just enough to argue about what has been causing this disparity in the human-nature balance and how it all began; in fact, this argument has now become redundant. The only valid discussion that remains now is how to prepare for such calamities that take hundreds of lives in a matter of minutes and how to rehabilitate the victims for a sustainable future.

A natural disaster is basically described as any naturally occurring event that destroys human life and population, killing hundreds and injuring even more, all the while causing destruction in other aspects like buildings. Such events basically then displace the victims and take a toll on any country’s economy because of the destruction of infrastructure. Over the past few decades, the number of natural disasters has gone up to 11 annually in every country, an astonishing figure. Currently, the most common natural disaster is flooding followed by others such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. While there are ways to predict these disasters and prepare for them beforehand, these ways are only actively used in the first world and nothing can prepare you for the shock of actually dealing with the disaster.

In the aftermath of a disaster, there are two major concerns: the first one is to provide immediate relief to the victims in order to ensure their survival. This is known as giving out core relief items, a list that is approved and sanctioned by the UNHCR that includes material things

Natural Disasters And Their Root Cause

In recent times the world has witnessed climate change and natural disasters of gigantic proportions. This is just the beginning of a 10-15 year destructive phase which will increase in intensity. The root cause behind this weird weather patterns and destruction is primarily spiritual.

In a world that is increasingly connected, natural disasters have far-reaching repercussions that are felt beyond the geographic boundaries of where the natural disasters hit.

Global warming is not the only major contributing factor to climate change. The Spiritual Science Research Foundation undertook spiritual research to ascertain the actual causes of climate change and the increasing intensity of natural disasters.
1. Cyclical changes

It is the law of nature that whatever has been created is sustained and eventually destroyed. This is the law of Creation, Sustenance and Dissolution and it contributes to 30% of the reason of natural disasters.For example, the Himalayan mountain ranges have been created, will be sustained and eventually will be destroyed. Thus, whenever something is created in this world, after a period of being sustained, it can be expected that at some point it will be destroyed. Only the Creator i.e. God remains steady and unchanging.
The time span of the Universe is divided into four eras. In the first era i.e. Satyayuga, the subtle basic sattva component was predominant. When there is a higher predominance of sattva in the environment, cyclical changes are gentle. As the eras progressed there was a reduction in the sattva component; thus resulting in cyclical changes with higher amplitude. In the present era of Kaliyuga where the predominant subtle basic component is raja, the cyclical changes in creation, sustenance and destruction are quite dramatic. Destruction is generally brought about by increased natural disasters, disease and war. We are in the midst of a destruction phase in one of the mini cycles in Kaliyuga. Each mini cycle generally lasts for a 1000 years. 2. The effect of Man on Nature Man affects Nature to the extent of 90%. This happens in following three ways.
