Although I tend not to agree with the “New Age “stuff” one wise young lady suggested that I may be an “empath” and this fits.
I know several people who fit this category.
One of my issues with “New Age” is it has turned spiritual endeavours into the “Protestant Ethic” of money making: The other, it is populated by people who appear to believe utter “bovine faeces”.
This is a broad generalisation any many do “keep it real”.
I “pick up” on people’s feelings and those of other life forms.
When I was a child my mother threatened to have me put in a mental institution because I couldn’t bear to see anything suffer.
I hid a dog in the local church ( which was always unlocked in those days) so it wouldn’t be shot for breaking into the chicken run.
When I was at primary school we were being taught about Albert Schweitzer and our teacher thought him strange because he was upset by moths being attracted to a flame or light. I am the same! At night I make sure the curtains are completely shut so that the light doesn’t attract moths.
I also do my best not to kill anything.
This includes insects and rodents!
I have just seen a post about cruelty to pigs on Facebook and it has motivated me to re write and eventually re publish my fiction e Book. I am writing this e Book for me.
I do my best not support the drug companies and the meat industry.
There are many horror stories but I will just tell one.
In 1982 the husband of one of my staff, who was carting stock to the abattoirs, asked me to report that suckie calves were left to die of dehydration and starvation: I phoned the RSPCA who called me a liar and a trouble maker: I then put something in writing but this was ignored.
I found out from people that work at the abattoirs or visit same that all new borns are left to die this way.
And to my knowledge this still happens.
A friend of my that used to work there told me earlier this century that the drug companies ask for this ( death by starvation and dehydration!) And my podiatrist told me that hormones build up in the tissues when they die this way and the drug companies harvest these.
In the seventies I was in Animal lib: Greenpeace: and later Trees For Life. I was also in Women’s lib.
Women’s lib has gone to ridiculous extremes:
Animal Lib: Greenpeace and Trees For Life are just impotent bureaucracies: Animals still have no rights: And money is still more important than ecology.
And homo sapiens are way beyond plague proportions.
I haven’t put any clairvoyant stories in my blog of late: this is because I believe it unethical to relate peoples reading—but amazing stuff still happens.
The stories that I can tell are in my non fiction E Book and because I am with Amazon KDP I am legally not allowed to put them anywhere digitally.
I still haven’t the slightest idea about the meaning of life: The closest I can ascertain is that time is a dimension and linear time an illusion?
It doesn’t explain all the cruelty.
Enjoy your day on this beautiful planet.
