When I was in college I had a lot of part-time jobs. Because my university was on the semester system and because I lived in the dorms and because there were several weeks in between semesters I always had quit the job at the end of the semester.
I had a lot of jobs one different job each semester. Most of these jobs I worked out were retail jobs because they were very easy to get and retail is kind of a cool job you have if you don’t need that for your primary income. When you’re working retail people that buy stuff for usually in a good mood.
People like to buy things. If you ever think about the last time you bought something that you really wanted when you thought about getting that thing and when you finally decided to buy this thing it felt really good.
Another reason I like retail is because you work with a lot of people that are kind of a relaxed atmosphere so is a good place to meet friends and it’s got kind of a hookup culture built into it.
She Must Be Into Me, Right?
One day I was working with this girl. She was not in college she had graduated from high school a couple of years ago which is when I had graduated from high school. She was kind of cute and she was waiting to talk to me I could tell she was waiting to talk to me she waited until there is no people around.
She walked up and she looked at me and she said I’m having a get together this weekend it would be really cool if you could come. She said it in such a way that seemed very important to her that I would say yes so I said yes and I was really really excited because I thought I was going to get some.
I show up at this party that she said was a get together. I walk in and I realize right off the bat it wasn’t actually party. There is only about six or seven people there all of them kind of the same age that me and this girl were but there is one much older guy that seemed to be the center of this get together.
Then I realized, I thought that I realized that this wasn’t a party this was some kind of a Jesus meeting. When this girl approached me she wasn’t approaching me and offering me a chance to get laid she was approaching me because she was trying to sell me some Jesus.
I Love Jesus, Yes I Do!
I figured, well if I can pretend to be into Jesus I still might get laid so I decided to go along with whatever happened. We started off sitting around in a circle but as soon as we sat in a circle with this older guy at the head of the circle.
She was sitting a couple of seats away from me and that kind of destroyed my chances of even using Jesus to get some. This guy didn’t start talking about Jesus. He started giving psychic readings to everybody and he started immediately to the person on his right which was all the way to my left and he started to spend about two minutes on each person and then he would move onto the next person.
All the people seem to be comfortable with this but I was freaking out because at the time I was a student of physics and I didn’t believe in this stuff one bit so I had a couple of competing ideas in my brain.
One of them said if you just use your magical science skills to prove this guy full of crap. But then that thought was followed by a thought of that if you do that and everybody here will be angry you for destroying their group especially the girl that invited you here so I decided not to do that because that would kill whatever slim chances might still exist for me to be able to get some.
Dude, Where Am I?
The next thought was actually a little bit worse because as he started to go around the crowd I started to realize that even if he was full of crap I would have to pretend that he was telling the truth that he was actually psychic because if I acted like I didn’t believe in every one of the group would think how some kind of a strange outsider.
I was still clinging to the hope of of being able to get some from this girl is always kind of worried about how I would pretend that he was being a true psychic even though I didn’t believe it because I was never really good at bluffing. My friends always know that I’m the greatest poker player because I could never bluff.
They can always read me like an open book and slow starting to get really really nervous but then he looked at me in the first few things he said were absolutely accurate. He told me about some things that my father and I had talked about when I was much younger that I had never told anybody and he used some specific nouns that we talked about things that weren’t these vague kind of cold reading ideas.
That instantly destroyed any of my skepticism and within a couple of seconds I suddenly believed this guy was the real deal and he looked at me and he said I know you’re shocked.
I Know What You Are Thinking
I know you thought it was fake. I know you were worried about how to respond to me. I know you are thinking about how you would try to pretend that I was real even though you didn’t believe me and that will cause you to look fake in front of other people but let me assure you I am absolutely honest when I say that when you are very young you knew that you had a gift.
You know you had a special gift and as you start to realize now that that gift still exists within you, you might start to begin to understand that is your responsibility to cultivate that gift. It is your responsibility to share that gift with others and fortunately I can sense the are starting to believe what I’m saying because luckily if you can take that gift and remember who you really are remember what your purpose is here.
Remember when you were very very young, when you have these ideas about yourself that you knew were different from everybody else. When you are very very young and you remembered that you had a view of reality that was different than everybody else. That you remember what it was like to see things in a way that other people don’t see that.
You remember what it was like to understand things in a way that other people don’t understand. That you remember what it was like to see connections between things that other people don’t see and the more you can remember those old memories that are slowly starting to bubble up to the service of right now.
Remember Who You Were
The more you might remember that every time you go out into the world it is an opportunity to see those things you might have purposely been missing all of this time. He paused for a moment he went to the next person.
I felt like my brain was like a snow globe that had been put upside down inside of a paint shaker and left for days. When you take your beliefs and you shake them up like that so quickly and so unexpectedly it can take them a lot of time to settle back down.
The thing about beliefs that exist in your brain when you shake them up and let them float around they don’t always settle back down to the bottom like you would expect them to.
Beliefs Are Self Constructing
Sometimes they sometimes they rearrange themselves in ways you could not have even anticipated. Sometimes they collect together and combine into bigger more robust structures that allow you to see things outside of your mind-body experience in ways that you hadn’t even thought possible before.
Whenever I saw that girl at work I had kind of two minds of how to respond to that memory. One of them was I was hoping to pretend that this didn’t really happen that this was just some richly constructed hallucination.
But every time she looked at me I got a sense that she knew exactly what I was thinking. She knew the party was terrifying that with that guy had said was true that she knew that part of me was hoping to go back to the way it was before I went to that get together.
That’s the reason she asked me there. The other half I was too terrified to even contemplate. Even to this day whenever I think about that part of me tries very hard to remember that as if it were some very richly constructed hallucinations.
If you try hard enough you can’t help but realize that almost everything that exists is in some way a very richly constructed hallucinations and it’s up to us to choose how to interpret this hallucination.
