I for one am grateful for my attentions to have been
directed to these matters...I had been noticing things in
my peripheral vision for a long time, and, now I feel
interested in a direct way. I got used to habits of closeing
off some things, or holding them ( or me) at a distance,
decisions made long ago.
Thank you for your mention here.
Last night, I went and did a little looking, and read an
interview with Fakir Musafar.
I had allways intuitively liked him, from some random images
I had seen quite a while ago. But I never knew anymore about
him than that.
Now I find I really like him, and found his mentions in the
interview to be quite moveing for me.
