Apparently, this person had a special gift..telepathy. He used it to communicate thoughts with his mother and still uses it even after her passing. I find people like this truly fascinating. I really wonder what is going in their minds as they are telling these stories because I know what is going on in mine..get help. There is a word for people that hear voices in their heads. It's called schizophrenia, and I think this guy may have been slipping on his medication. Then again, if he is happy, maintaining a decent job, and not really hurting anybody then who am I to try and disrupt his fantasy. He seems to be doing a lot better than I am so there is not much I can really say about it. He went on to talk about how he sometimes guards abandoned buildings that are "haunted" and how he has a "sixth sense" for these things. He even saw an apparition once, a shadowy figure with glowing red eyes that appeared and disappeared right before him. I'm already struggling with the concept of religion, so obviously ghosts and goulies are going to be an even tougher sell. I wonder if working in Tinseltown can somehow warp the mind. I'm sure being submersed in fiction on a daily basis can have an adverse effect on some people. According to him, there are plenty of "spirits" inhabiting Hollywood because of all of the unsolved murders, so I guess his sixth sense helps him detect them or something like that. The whole thing almost sounded like an episode from a bad TV show. I later brought the conversation to my bible study buddies just because it was so fascinating to me. I wonder if religion and paranormal activities are somehow connected. My theory on spirits and apparitions (if any): This big rock we are standing on..this IS hell. You do good, you get to leave and find a new place uptown. Not so good, you roam around in purgatory or limbo until some sort of redemption releases you. Why else would someone's spirit be lingering around after death when they could be hanging out with the cool people in the V.I.P. section upstairs. More conversation brought up the topic of entering a séance and using a ouija board to communicate with the afterlife. I've heard lots of stories about these types of events. Wild tales involving spelling things out, cutting the power, even throwing things and I always think to myself "Why doesn't cool stuff like that ever happen to me??" I am definitely going to have to attend one of these and witness this phenomenon first-hand. If there are spirits out there then I want to talk them. I've got lots of questions.. like don't they have better things to do than pull practical jokes on people that they know are afraid of them. Maybe I will even get lucky and meet a witch (a good one not a bad one). I seem to be in this exploring religion phase of my life, might as well just check them all out and throw witchcraft in there too while I'm at it. It seems to be a sort of religion and at this point I really have nothing to lose. In fact, they seem a bit proactive. Instead of waiting around for something good to happen, they'll just cast a spell and make it happen themselves. I could ask her to cast a spell of awesomeness on me, then my life would be so much better and all my problems would go away due to the fact that I would be awesome. I don't know why I didn't think of this before, I'm definitely going to have to check into that one. I'm not sure that the notion is strong enough to fill the No. 9 slot on my bucket list, but it is definitely going on the to do list. Awesomeness here I come.
