Mind Blowing Events, And Do They Matter?
I often wonder if there are certain events we "somehow" invite into our lives at any given point, that offer a certain oomph to an individual who eventually as we say "wakes up" (or begins to) at some point during their lives, such as I finally did in late 2008.
Simple as they may sound to many, here are 3 events that without any one of them the capability to finally make the all out jail break from the matrix would never have been possible. All three of these occured in exact opposition to previously held possibilities of what could possibly happen in this life time.
1) Journeying to unimagined places upon discovering LSD as a late teen ager.
2) Having to be bumped out the door of the plane from 12,500' on my first tandem skydive, because I had frozen in utter shock and fear upon hanging my legs out the door and looking down.
3) Joining the military. Not because I was not for war or anything, no, I was most pro US ruling the 7 seas. I just signed up because of the bad economy in the early 90's, in hopes of a pension after 20 years.(What a dumbass) The mind blower was really about visiting countries half way around the world (and therefore their people) like Israel, France, Greece, Germany, etc. Hanging out in their bars, eating at their restaurants, trying to learn their language, walking their streets, and stunningly coming to the realization that people were basically the same wherever one goes.
I suspect that I'm not alone in recognizing that certain striking events in our lives can come into play once again even decades later. Had those little splinters in the mind not been directly embedded already, even though somewhat consciously forgotten, future catalysts would be unnoticed, and therefore futile.
Anyone else relate to this?
