Alright now, we've been kickin' these paranormal lite activities of mine around quite a bit of late. Time to see what we got so far. One of the insights I've come away with is... That given the existence of what we shall call the "Un-Seen". And that there's something that compelles it to manifest such puzzling things that for the most part just confound us. Which inturn generates fear and confusion leading to suspicion and apprehension. I started to and kinda felt that we tend to jump to some conclusion that someone or thing needs our help to move on. I think that's a failure on our part to see that more often than not. It may very well be the other way around. In that it just may be that it is us that it is trying to warn and help. I'll even go as far as to say that often we are spared many a displeasure due to the efforts on the part of the Un-Seen. Some refer to this as the work of Angels. I sorta think of it as agents of influence. Also these agents have rules to abide by on their side. Witch may explain why they can't just come right out and say what's what. Now I'm not sayin' their always successful. Nor that all are virtuous. I can't venture into their motives or their methods of carrying them out. Only to say that one thing leads to another. As in a connect the dots fashion on a timeline that can be far different than ours on this side of the veil.
I don't believe they are always spirits that we knew who passed away. Although they may be called upon to play a part. Pending on the particular situation. The key to it all I believe has a lot to do with the state of our conscious and/or our subconscious. Which by the way we have very little if any willfull/ready access to. Individually and/or collectively. Only a vague notion of the relation twix the two. Whereas the Un-Seen I suspect enjoys some measure of an advantage on that front. That bein' said. I'd like us to take a birds eye view under the covers of two seemingly similar but distinct aspects related to this undertaking of... for want of a better term... the Un-Seen.
Paranormal vs Supernatural.
Paranormal: Denoting events or phenomena such as telekinesis or clairvoyance that are beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding.
Supernatural: A manifestation or event attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.
The key relation to both are I think contained within their very titles noting . . . Normal and Natural.
Para as this bird sees it. Denotes an aspect of being besides or side by side of something we consider normal. "Something apart from"
Super as to something extra and above and beyond something's and/or someone's natural nature. "Something more or added to."
Therefore sometimes all things may not be generated exclusively from without as in Paranormal. Since we don't know the total workings/ability of the subconscious. We can't really rule out what may be caused by some Extra force/gift generated from within. Thus bluring the lines twix the two. For my peace of mind I'd say the two go hand and hand. As in one summoning the service's of the other and visa versa. Allowing that either phenomena can and does act on its own quite often. Leavin' us to fill in the blanks. Witch we tend to do very poorly at best due to lack of knowledge/understanding. Witch brings us back to the angents or angels if you like. They may very well be one and the same. I can't really say though I like to think they're seperate entities that work in conjunction with eachother from time to time. That's not to say they are always in agreement mind you. At times opperating in tandem. Other times in opposition. Leavin' us in the middle with a lot of wierd and sometims hostile shit to go through and figure out somehow.
Thankfully to date. My own experiences have been on the benevolent side. Witch is more than I can say for my part on this side. Seein' as both are cloaked within the shadows of as well as make full use of what we call Paranormal and/or the Supernatural. Witch leaves me/us at best in a fog, but for the most part in the dark. Witch puts this Black Bird in a resentfull and belligerent spirit and frame of mind. So barring additional revelations yet to come. The facts so far for this silly bird anyway. Come down to this...
Agent and/or Angels opperate in conjunction with each other or on their own. Though outside our five senses to detect it. Directly intervene and influnce our here and now reality. Hopefully on behalf of a beneficial outcome.
Other times in a manner spanning time and space. For reasons most solemnly. Be them profound and/or divine. Either way they aren't meant for us to comprehend or realize they even took place.
I feel it as well.
When it comes to Heaven and Hell.
There lies a infinte culf of mysteries between.
That we may never fully learn what they mean.
All I can say and as far as I can tell.
It be the providence and domain of the Un-Seen.
