So, no name that I've encountered. I'm sure, like we call our world 'earth', they probably called theirs something too, but it hasn't come across to
me. But I'll see if I can access it out in the spirit realm. A less reliable source, I've found, but I still can get some information there.
No, no need. You appear not to be one of those with the "Zeta Reticuli" story that's been handed out, so that's good enough.
I believe as you pointed out that we make our own reality, and have far more "power" than is commonly realized. Whether that "power" is of an esoteric
nature or wholly natural (i.e. "spiritual" vs. "psychological") is up for discussion, but I don't believe the distinction really makes any
I believe in the potential for the existence of most of the beings or entities you mention. I was told some time ago that "elves look out for me -
like they would ANY fool, drunk, or Irishman", which pronouncement I took with a grain of salt, and considered the source. That doesn't mean that I
necessarily believe in elves, and I can't claim it for truth, but won't deny the potential, either.
Where we seem to differ is in two particular areas - first, you appear to see these beings as extraterrestrial, and I don't. More properly, I guess, I
don't think it matters WHERE they come from, if they exist at all. Likewise, any limitations they may have on actions aren't important to me to know
the source of. To know the limitations are there is enough.
Second, I tend not to believe in any sort of concerted or organized NWO sort of activity. All I can allow for is some sort of disorganized free for
all. I don't much care what they do within that free for all, because my world is not theirs, and vice versa.
I won't get too far into "spirituality" other than to say that I firmly believe there is more to life than mere biochemical reactions. Just as these
other beings are alleged to be of a spiritual nature, so is man. We just carry ours around in a physical carcass every so often, and for a time.
Because of that, any interactions with potential "spirit beings" would of necessity be carried out via that aspect of human existence, and not the
physical, which is where most folks get it wrong. They try to mix the two, as if a car and it's driver could be somehow mixed and merged into an
inseparable One. That "essence" for lack of a better word, is also where our strength would lie in any such dealings, and where fear of these
potential unknowns comes from in people. They fear for their bodies, not realizing the strength of their essence, and the essential difference between
Therefore, I have no fear at all of any sort of spirit beings, Djinns included. I can get just as rough as they can if it ever came to it.
Toasters are mere mechanical entities, with a creator. There seems to be more to man than that merely mechanical existence enjoyed by toasters, fire
trucks, and any other number of created things - whether created by a sentience or created by random events.
Strength of mind, strength of spirit, strength of soul, or strength of essence. Take your pick. I don't recognize any difference in any of those
things. They are the same to me, and something apart from biochemical mechanical reactions.
For any one who would deny the potential for such entities, I'd have to say that there are stranger things in the Heavens and the Earth than most
folks could ever conceive of. For those who would dissent, I'd ask them to measure gravity for me. Not the results of gravity, like weight brought on
by the gravitational attraction of mass, but rather gravity itself, the force itself. Until they can measure (and I don't mean "calculate', I mean
'measure' - things that do not exist in the real universe at all can be calculated) the force of gravity itself, independent of it's actions, they
can't tell me that things which cannot be seen are impossible to exist. Until that day comes, I will continue to allow for the potential that there
may be OTHER incomprehensible things around.
I probably ought to get off the internet for now. I'm tired, and may not be making much sense with this.
