<< 8 hours later I come back to the computer to finish the post, and get
the punch line of the joke. "By the fruits are they known". O Very funny,
Goddess. I wondered why it was a fruit this time instead of a flower.. O
I like this new mantra.
Bananas, eh? Figgers.. By the fruits are they known-.. bananas. Very
good joke by Goddess.
I didn't do a thing. >>
This reminds me of an incident decades ago when I'd been reading about the
concept of thought creating our reality. I was walking barefoot across my
bedroom, wondering if thoughts of attack could invite attack on the physical
plane. Suddenly, I felt a sharp pain in my heel. I bent down to examine my
foot and saw that I'd stepped on a thumbtack. Then I got it: "Attacked by a
tack!" The universe used a clever pun to answer my question. It was so
perfect that I burst out laughing.
I've also had plenty of experiences when things happened to me that were
completely different from what I expected, believed or had been thinking
about, so I regard personal thought as influential, but not the only force
creating our experiences of reality. Goddess is full of surprises.
Here's an example: Years ago I was at a party which was kind of dull. I
didn't know many people there so after a few glasses of wine, I decided to
liven things up for myself. I had a reputation at that time for always being
more self-contained than anyone else, even if I'd been drinking or using
drugs, etc. I was very good at keeping my cool. Well, this time I decided
it would be an interesting variation for me to deliberately be an asshole.
The way I decided to do it was to approach strangers and act like I was some
great psychic. I'd had a lot of intuitive and psychic experiences in my
life, but my plan was to deliberately be totally wrong in every "psychic"
thing I said. For some reason, this struck me as a hilarious idea.
So I strolled over to a group of people who were conversing and just butted
in on the conversation, turned to one of the guys who I'd never seen before,
and announced boldly, "You have an older sister and she's a Gemini!"
I expected him to say, "I'm an only child" or something like that, and for
everyone to look at me like I was a complete space flake. Instead, his eyes
got real big and he said, "How did you know that? My older sister IS a
THAT cracked me up. I'm thinking, "What are the odds that I could have got
it right?" I wandered away thinking, well, I'll do it again, the exact same
way... no chance I'll hit the target twice. So I launched back into my
be-an-asshole plan: Here comes the clueless psychic lady. I approached a
woman I didn't know and said, "Your older sister is a Leo!"
She nearly choked on her drink. "Who are you? Who told you that? I haven't
spoken to my sister in five years. What else do you know about my family?"
"I don't know anything, it's all a fluke," I exclaimed. I was beside myself
laughing at my "failed" asshole adventure at this point, but figured there
was no way I could do it three times in a row. So I picked another
unsuspecting victim, approached him, and said, "You have an older sister
who's a Capricorn."
"Do you know my sister? Have I met you somewhere before?"
I absolutely couldn't believe it. "No, I don't know anybody. I don't know
anything. I'm making it all up."
For the rest of the time I was there, I noticed people pointing at me and
whispering about my amazing psychic powers. Some of them wanted me to do
readings for them! I just kept laughing and insisting I was a fraud.
