If my experience is truly "other-worldly", then I am convinced others must have had a similar encounter as well, or can at least corroborate some of
the ideas the woman expressed.
I was in a bookshop in a large city when a woman asked the clerk if she could use the bathroom. The clerk dismissed her, so I offered to help her
find a bathroom in a nearby restaurant. She appeared a bit disheveled (my thought was that she was probably homeless) so I offered to buy her lunch.
We walked and talked, but truth be told, I found most of what she said fairly nonsensical. She would flutter between cryptic remarks about "the
circle man" who she sees occasionally in this area (the neighborhood we were in was named after the circle) and more light-hearted comments about
incense, soft things, etc. I generally thought that she a nice lady but maybe just a bit crazy.
I think that we started out just talking about the world and human nature (once her conversation was focused on a specific topic, she was fairly
engaging). At some point, I remembering just *thinking* a question passively to myself...and she answered. I tried it again and she answered.
Terrified, I tried to stop thinking and, too scared to talk, started writing my questions. I can only remember the answer to one of the questions
that I asked: "What is the Bible?" to which she replied "instructions on how to leave earth". Toward the end of our conversation, she commented
that she thought I was the one she was looking for. She mentioned that she thought she had saw her at a soup kitchen but "then she started talking
about the holy spirit...[trails off]"
We started walking (and talking) again. At some point, I must have said something that didn't jive with her because she abruptly told me "well, why
don't you go home and pray about it? I have to go" She then began walking away from me really quickly. I finally decided to catch up with her,
half-jokingly accusing her of trying to trick me. We then got on a bus and headed around town. More questions, to which the answers were: "fasting
puts you on a spiritual high" and "there is spiritual time and there is regular time"
Our last stop was a dinner at Quizno's. I was still too terrified to eat, and she had to coax me to drink my sobe. At this point, my questions were
the most prodding and she told me that anything I wrote in my book would just be "between me and God". I remember we were talking about who gets to
leave earth (or however we referred to "heaven") and she said something that made me really concerned (I can't remember what). She asked me to go
ahead and write the names of the people that I was worried about, but I refused.
With all the dire talk, we got around to talking apocalypse. In the conversation, the "apocalypse" sounded more like a big change than a
traditional fire and brimstone hell (I can't remember the exact words used that made me think that). When I asked her "when would this happen" or
"when will the world be ready" she became much more serious than she had been the entire day. She took the notebook and pencil that I had been
using to ask my questions and wrote three possible intervals (i.e. 100, 250, 300 years from now). She didn't tell me not to tell anyone the years
she wrote down, but given her serious demeanor, I want to keep the exact years secret. Suffice it to say that all three of the intervals were between
3 and 20 years from now.
Sorry for all of the hazy details. We were together for over 6 hours and this happened all the way back in July. At the time of the experience, I
would have described myself as spiritual but not religious (although heavily concerned with humanitarian issues and social justice). After the
conversation, I would now consider myself a "deist" of sorts.
Feel free to question the validity of the story (I do) - for example, much of the "supernatural" aspect of the story is based upon my perception of
her telepathy...or...why would she, with some sort of enlightenment, have to search for someone in a city? Let me know if you've experienced
