Last night I tweeted at like 4 in the morning about dreaming weird and movie dreams. Every so often, I get these dreams that are more like a movie than a random weird dream. I obviously can’t remember what I dreamt right now but what I can’t stop forgetting is something weird that happened to me this morning.
First of all, I like to think of myself as more of a scientist than not. Like I understand why horoscopes “work” and stuff like that but you have to realize I grew up around Buddhism, which let me tell you, is about a lot of things that cannot be explained.
I can tell you a million unexplainable stories that have occurred in my family and other things that I have seen and such but whether you believe it or not, ultimately depends on you.
I feel like I need to say these things because while studying psychology in my undergrad, there was this incessant need to emphasize the scientific aspects of it versus the not-so-scientific. The focus was always about proving ourselves in an empirical matter and everything else just doesn’t matter. I feel like when you are dealing with human beings though, that a little bit of the other stuff does matter. The power of belief right? Some people use religion as a coping method and it works for them, is that wrong? Should we be telling them, that religion is bogus? I don’t think so.
Anyways, sorry about the mini-rant there, but now that I have gotten that out of the way. I can tell you guys what happened this morning.
Originally, I wasn’t supposed to work today. There was a mess up on the schedule but ultimately, I wasn’t supposed to work. However, this morning, I got a call from my co-worker telling me that her son was having an allergic reaction to something and that she’s trying to see if it will go away and that she might need me to go in for her today but that she will call me back. A bit later on, I get another call from that same co-worker telling me that she needed me to go in for her.
Now here is the trippy part. She did NOT call me twice. She only called me the one time when she asked me to go in for her. Not the time before that. I checked my phone, I even asked her later on that day and it’s like wth just happened? Like I said, very strange. Some of you guys may think that it was maybe a longer call and I dozed off in between, but the call only lasted a minute…sooo I don’t think that that would have been possible. I remember telling her to give me a call back if she needed me to go in for her.
Anyways, thought I would share that with you all. Sorry about the lack of meditation monday posts. They will be coming back shortly, I have just been swamped with life.
