When I was young, four or five years old, I could hear or sense the thoughts and feelings of those around me. As a child this was mostly used to protect me from a violent father and a passive mother. I was always more comfortable by myself. I found out later why.
You see, the human family seems to think it is necessary to be dishonest. Not completely dishonest, but enough to make hearing there colored versions of truth more uncomfortable than solitude. As I aged, I found that this sensitivity increased. At 41 years old I have learned to handle the pain and lost feelings the most of humanity project, however I find myself wanting to find others like me that I can bounce the day-to-day learning process off of. The flipside to this is the eyes. If you can "see" you know what I mean.
I know that we are never alone. And there are forces for our good as well as our demise. It is very comforting to enter almost any situation more prepared than anyone else in the room. I have also the comfort of knowing that this life as we know it is short. We are only at the beginning of our process as beings.
Now I don't know if you are disappointed that I am not offering examples of the things that I have done and seen. I am not saying that I won't, I just hold it all close to the vest, if you know what I mean.
