  1. Hello people.

    Up until not too long ago, I always believed in the 'material' world. With this I mean the common Western understanding that focuses on science and mostly rejects spiritual views.

    However, a friend of mine, whom I trust, told me that he sees 'ghosts', much like in "The Sixth Sense". He said that these ghosts are indeed deceased people, and that they walk amongst us the whole time.

    I knew that I could trust my friend, so that left me with just two viable options. Either he has some kind of disorder that causes him to see things, or it's all real. After that, I did some research, and apparently he's not the only one. I've met another person with the same 'ability', and I've read several articles about the whole thing.

    It shook my old views and understandings of the world apart, and since then I've been very interested in the Metaphysical. The reason why I'm posting this is that I'd really like to hear your experiences on the matter.

    So far, most people who I talked with about this subject didn't take me seriously, but please consider that the only proof I have is that I can trust the person who told me about this at first.

    If you're interested in this subject, I recommend worlditc.org, a website that claims to practice in communication technology between both 'worlds'. There are several valuable articles that helped me form a new understanding of the world around us.

      Perhaps your friend has such a "higher state of mind" (in relation to you) that he's inducing you to believe (trust) him? Would you be the first person to believe something which someone claims, but which is not true? Haven't you ever overheard someone being called "honest" when all glimpses at this person's behavior showed otherwise? Perhaps an instance where for some reason from their perspective he seemed honest while you could see he wasn't really so?

      I'm not saying his exteriorized or projected metaphors might not have their particular value, but...

      Indeed, things such as "trust" and "faith" are things to be valued.

      BUT...

      I'm sure you meant that unless things are experienced for yourself, and interpreted, made reasonable by your own critical process-- there really is no reason to take another's word as gospel. Beliefs can only be motivation for a cause, though, and shouldn't hold precedence.

      If someone believed in anything supernatural(or intangible even, which is hard not to do), and only thought of it as meaningless trivia, well... I don't see the point in it.

      Ibn Al-Arabi's 'Metaphysics of Imagination ' is a very interesting book which I'm reading at the moment.
