The Metaphysical Concept of Nature


Are all those who believe in ghosts, the metaphysical and the paranormal either mad, romantic or both?
I have long taken pleasure from the romantic poets, composers and artists
Surely this preference is from a genetic inheritance or merely a part of my nurturing or both?
"And I have felt
A presence that disturbs me with the joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man;
A motion and a spirit that impels
All thinking things, all objects of all thought,
And rolls through all things."
Wordsworth created "Tintern Abbey" in 1798 but it remains as beautifully poignant today as it did when his quill first touched the parchment
The romantic poets instilled an essence of the metaphysical in their poetry
Were they all mad?
Were they all products of their social environment?
Were they all mere "followers of fashion"?
Are we that believe in the soul of nature today a throwback to a bygone age?
Anyone out there that feels the same?
Anyone out there interested enough to write about their feelings on the existence of the spirit or soul?
Come on - prove me wrong - write!!

I read something yesterday about the Black Brotherhood and how it likes to intercept psychic signals going to and from channelers and the spirit world for evil purposes and to create confusion.Sort of like an evil ISP messing with the data going to and fro from peoples computers and the internet.Do you ever worry that you may be dealing with evil spirits like these and that they might be deliberately sending you evil or just plain wrong information?

My sincere apologies
A moment of melancholy and mania can be my only excuse for daring to understand the depths of meaning conveyed by Wordsworth!
I'l try to stick to ghosts from here on in

Hi Dr Pepper
I am mindful always of the balance in all matter
Where there's light there is dark and so on
I often wonder who is posting on this blog, for example. Who are you?
Do you hail from the dark or the light?
I believe in the power to intercept energy, in particular the energy that is channelled.
That being said I am always careful whilst channelling and use the appropriate protection required
We should always use our intuition and be careful to block negative energy ( or re-balance it with the required amount of positive energy)
It is extremely difficult to maintain this life philosophy but well worth the effort. For me it is not a question of life style it is the only way to exist
I'll dedicate another post to the Black Brotherhood

People living in the real world crave fantasy and people living in a fantasy world crave reality

the night my 3 month old daughter died, i heard a baby crying while i was in my own room, trying to think how to go over her funeral. the crying was so clear, i thought it was my 2 week old niece whining for a milk.

when i went to check her, i saw my siblings in the room, all with shock look.

my niece was sound asleep in her crib.

my sister in law gave me a dumbfounded look and asked: "did you hear it too?" and i was like, "yeah i thought i heard mariella cried."

everyone in that room raced downstairs before i could say another word.

to this date, everyone still tells me, that it was probably my daughter they heard crying. and i thought so, too.

now, how are you going to classify that?

Your personal experience supported by a totally uninfluenced group experience is surely evidence of life after death? Even the most sceptical of scientific researchers could not deny these facts!
