I have made no secret of my abilities to, in a way – “foretell” the future.
Most people thought Im an idiot for one for accurately predicting years ago – starting in 2015, actually, that the entire world was headed up to one massive WAR.
In fact as recently as 2020, Cici, my Chinese tea supplier ridiculed the idea of war – even though Galwan Valley had happened a week or so ago.
“It can never happen here!”
Much like the fallacy of “I dont need to be in shape or know self defense or what not” “because the cops will save me” (hint – they might not even get there in time – nothing against the men in Blue, I’ve always been a staunch supporter there, I’ve always ridiculed the liberals who fight to defund the police, then complain about rising crime and so forth – but doing it YOURSELF “if you want it done right, you gotta do it yourself”, or “all the tech in the world, all the highly trained professionals, yet what do you have – if you want something done right, you do it yourself” aka James Woods in the Specialist, hehe) … people thought “it could never happen”.
I wonder what these same people think now.
Oh wait, they all called me arrogant for saying “my dreams predict what is going to happen tomorrow” (even though events that happen “tomorrow” prove my dreams to be ACCURATE – to the “T” – as a recent reader of my books asked, hehe “what does to a T” mean) …
and then they blocked me.
No worries there, the minute one person goes for reasons like that, someone better materializes almost instantly, I’ve seen and experienced it happen all the time. ‘Tis a pity more people dont jump onto that thought bandwagon.
I was thinking, ruminating, mostly about how my life’s work is what it is, and how i’ve always been brought back to it – big time – in one way or the other.
The one thing no-one can really criticize about you, even your most ardent and ferocious trollers and detractors, the one thing you “do all the time” – except you never make it a business, or a life passion, whatever you call it – except it is.
And that wont go away my friend. I firmly believe all of us were put on this Earth for a purpose, and those of us, precious few, that follow our gut “base” instincts in that regard usually end up making it.
The rest, well – …
But anyway, I’ve made no secret of my disdain for SO called soothsayers, beads and amulets, babas, and other such ruffian sorts who claim to “know it all” – or perhaps the self help gurus that spout nonsense they’ve never done themselves “feel good crapola that does NOT work” – and so forth.
Amidst all this though, two thoughts came to my mind.
One being this is what you were put on the planet to do, Rahul – and I was thinking about how “mysteriously” I kept getting brought back to it, despite never focusing full time on it (as opposed to now).
I was literally FORCED to do many a times, then I forgot the lesson the Universe taught me, then it taught me again – gave me MORE severe “punishment” – then I forgot again – and so forth.
Hehe. Such as it goes. Thats life.
But this isn’t about that, it’s about the second thought that came to mind.
The lady in Khajiiar.
I’ve written about her off and on, blink and you’ll miss it, but that link above is one of the links.
Basically she was (probably still is this lady) who sold “Feng Shui” (in India thats called “vastu”) items in Khajiaar in the Indian Himalayas (still by far one of my favorite places in the world to live and visit) … a delightful little town known as the Switzerland of India. I’ve been there twice, I’ve even penned a travel diary of sorts on it, and my other trips to the Himalayas.
Maybe I’ll put that out as a product someday. Who knows. Hehe.
(along with my other trips to the Himalayas back in the day).
Anyway, I remember my wife asking this lady questions both about me and herself.
And as far as I was concerned, I was stunned – she said things about me by looking me in the eye that even I had forgotten – or that there was no possible logical way she could have known.
Nowadays, that look int he eye I write off so often, yeah, I get it.
Back then, I didnt get it – that much, at least.
I was left awestruck and in wonder, something that dont happen to me a lot in this regard.
2009, then 2016, I believe? Or was it 2016 … and the first time 2012?
Yeah, the latter.
And the first time I still remember my wife asking “what will he do long term” and the lady just replied dismissively “he’s not the sort to work under anyone, he never ever will. He will not live in India for the most part, he will have his own electronics trading business by the age of 41”.
Oddly enough, we just incorporated in the US – I remember thinking back then “electronics”? “Trading”?
While I still trade, that company is a different company – while I do “electronics” – it’s limited to typing. Hehe.
It was my first job too in China, working for an electronics “PCB” and other parts trader.
What came to mind though wasn’t all this, it was the AGE she mentioned.
“41, by by 40” … the words float out.
Madam, you were right.
Tip – doff – of the hat.
Truly pyschic x 10.
And along with Ann Lee, perhaps the other lady I admire a lot as well, if just for her abilities in that regard…
And thats what I wanted to say.
PS – Pick up Advanced Hill Training NOW, it’s the precusor to the brutal, and widely acclaimed book you see and hear of so often these days “Animal Kingdom Workouts“.
PS #2 – John Walker is one of my best customers, one of the most loyal and devoted, and he too was RIGHT – in a lot of things he said. He might not know it, but he is!
