|Leaning on the Invisible |
by Mary Bowmaker
The paranormal, or perhaps a Divine Presence, a guiding force, can be thought of as the ‘unnamed something’, or the Universal Energy; to many, it will be ‘God’. People all over the world are fascinated by it, from countries that live by their own strict religious codes and practices, to countries that have little time or thought for any form of religion. Always, the paranormal is there, as we make our way through life, for the paranormal (so called), is life, as evidenced in a dream that turns out to be true, or in the wonder of a coincidence that can be the means of changing attitudes or relationships for the better...or in the wonder of nature, in the power of prayer.
Leaning on the Invisible is an introduction to the unknown, a portal into another world that, if we fail to walk through it, leaves us immeasurably impoverished. The whole world has opened up suddenly to a form of ‘global citizenship’, as through the medium of the internet and other forms of communication we at last understand, and try to realise the significance and truth of the words the Brotherhood of Man.
And just as there is a great need for harmony and peace, for a ‘healing’ in our troubled times, so too comes the desire to seek out ‘like minds’, others who share a belief in the power for ‘good’, in the comforting reassurance that we do not travel this earthly path alone, that there is a reason for everything and everything happens for a reason. So too is the desire to share so-called paranormal experience, as through it we gain a better understanding of the meaning of life, and of life itself.
