Talking Weird Stuff
Psychic and Paranormal
Gautama The Buddha has been known to say that it is through illusions we encounter enlightenment. Illusions are the source of pain, and it is through pain and illusions the light comes through. There is a very similar idea in Christianity and many other religions.
Pain is the path of the prophets for prophets learn to transmute pain. There is no need to search for pain however, for each 'prophet' has enough pain for entire lifetimes. Prophets are chosen because of their potential to withstand pain, and keep a compassionate heart. Eventually a prophet will transcend pain and start transmuting with light. He will learn to fly with his wings.
Yet perhaps a prophet is more a rose than anything else. A rose, when crushed, spreads its perfume to the ones that crush it. A scent of freedom in a fleeting moment can become an avalanch of desire to liberate lives.
Blessed are the gentle, for they will inherit the earth were words of Wisdom itself.
