Strange Light

On a bitter cold winter day, while the sky was completely overcast and snow was falling, the clouds suddenly became very dark. Almost as if the hour of midnight had arrived. Then, there appeared a large area of bright light that lit up a sharply defined section of the clouds. Although it seemed to be coming from above the clouds it was not in the right area for the sun to have caused it and there was a very strange quality about it. Especially when it began to ripple and pulse.

He watched this for several minutes while feeling a tingling energy creeping up and down his spine. He didn’t know why but he was suddenly moved to quietly say, “Ok, I know you’re there.” As soon as he said those words the light pulsed brightly twice and disappeared.

Forlorn Highway

It’s a state road and it connects with two very busy, heavily used north/south highways.  If a traveler needs a shortcut from one of those routes to the other this road would definitely be the one to use.  Yet it is mostly bypassed.  Perhaps avoided would be more accurate.  So much so that weeds actually grow in the various cracks and potholes that dot the pavement.

Why is this?  Well, the road crosses some of the most forlorn, inhospitable landscape imaginable.  Just a glance at what’s along the roadside is enough to give anyone the creeps.  It looks like miles and miles of land that even the devil would shun.  Yet it seems unlikely that the dismalness of the area would alone be enough to deter the travelers of today who have in mind only to get where they are going as quickly as possible.

No, the problem with this road is something out of the ordinary.  Something mostly unseen but certainly felt exists not so very far from the western terminus of this road.  I do not know what lurks there but I have felt its effects on more than one occasion.  It gives one a definite sense of being threatened by impending evil and ultimate doom.  A bone chilling, soul deep foreboding that all is not well.

There are times when the air seems to thicken and the sunlight dims, as if some dreadful presence is hovering overhead and blocking the light.  Occasionally that presence can even be felt, as if a barrier is pushing against the car or even the driver’s physical body.

After making several trips through that zone and experiencing the utter terror that tries to possess the traveler it becomes very clear why this route is, and should continue to be, avoided.  The final time I drove on that road was so horrible and unsettling that I considered myself most fortunate to have escaped whatever is there.

I will not go that way again.  Nor will I divulge the location of the place, for to do so might encourage someone to foolishly go there to see what it’s like.  Take my word for it…you do not want that experience.

Freaked Out

While we ate lunch two of us talked about mystical and psychic things. About things we had heard about, witnessed, and about personal experiences connected with the strange worlds of the unseen. There were three of us there but one of the men remained quiet during the conversation.

As we got up to leave I looked directly in the eyes of the quiet one and said, “I know, you are thinking right now that the things we were talking about are a bunch of bunk. That no one with any sense at all could possibly believe a person’s mind can be read by another.”

The man’s eyes widened, he took a deep breath, then he turned and walked away without saying a word.

About an hour later the guy I’d been having the discussion with telephoned me. He was laughing so hard he could hardly talk. When he was finally able to speak, he said, “You completely freaked that other guy out. What you said he was thinking about right before he left was exactly, word for word, what was going through his mind.”

After that day the man would never have lunch with us anymore.

The Wonderful Glorious Golden Age

Back on a certain date in the year 2012 it was believed that great changes were to happen to this planet and its residents. Do you remember?

There were three schools of thought as to what would take place.

One group believed it was the beginning of a wonderful new golden age. That there would be a total overnight change in consciousness and everyone would awaken the next day with hearts so full of love that they were about to burst.

Another group thought that killer comets, massive asteroids, Planet X, or maybe all three, would succeed in bringing an end to all life on earth.

And what about the third group? Well, they basically said, “There ain’t nothing gonna change. The same old crap will be going on, just like yesterday. No change!”

Obviously, the third group was more on the right track, yet they too missed the mark. In what way, you ask, have they missed? Well, just look around you. Unless you’re in the midst of a Rip Van Winkle sleep it should be obvious that things have changed…and in many ways they have changed to something worse.

So, is it all a lost cause? Is humanity going to eventually succeed in its seemingly determined effort to extinguish itself from this planet…or is a new dawn about to break on the currently darkening horizon?

I don’t have the slightest indication as to how all of the hate and greed that the world is mired in can be cleared away, yet somehow I think it will.

Wishful thinking? Well yeah, maybe. But the alternatives sure don’t look very pretty.
