Almost everyone at one point or another experiences something which is very hard to describe by what we’re used to in our lives, what we’re taught at school, our religious teachings and all the things that really surround us and make up our lives.
This happened to me many years ago, not long after I lost some family that I had been very close to – my mother, father, aunt and grandmother. I was about to leave to work at the parts depot and went to find my keys where I usually put them, and they weren’t there. My wife Linda and I searched all over for them and could find them. I called a co-worker and asked him to go to the depot to open it for me, so that was taken care of, and then went to the kitchen to sit down and have a coffee with Linda, and afterwards I said “alright, let’s take another look for the keys,” and so I suppose by habit I looked again at where I usually put them, and there they were. That was very peculiar to me because both Linda and I had looked there previously and they hadn’t been there.
I set off to work and was just about to get on the motorway, and it was closed. It had been a cold, foggy morning and I didn’t give much thought as I took back roads to work. Two or three of the employees were concerned when I arrived, and seemed relieved that I was alright. They asked if I had been anywhere near the accident, and I asked which accident they were speaking of. They informed me that there had been a major accident and many people had died. A bus had even run onto some other cars because of the fog and ice. That story is an example of things that happen to us that we can’t say are definitely mysterious or definitely normality, which us just not seeing things that are there.
I’ve been reading a lot lately about different ways of looking at life, largely speaking from the point of view of quantum physics. Quantum physics is becoming more widely accepted. I am still trying to get my head around it. One of the positions that’s has been proven by experimentation is that everything that we live in becomes what we see when we observe it, when our consciousness observes whatever it is, whether, sound, sight, smells, tastes etc. Other than that, things exist in an undetermined state until we actually observe, or apply our consciousness to it. That’s an interesting train of thought, and it took me a while to get my head around it when I first read about this concept.
