A weird story

I will change a bit the usual topics and I’ll narate you what happened to me (us) today.
Today was the Laundry day. We found a self service laundry (a small one), and fortunately a parking space just in front of it. Like everyone esle, I stuffed everything in the machines, put the soap, paid (at the automatic central machine) and went to the car to wait. 

Getting in the car, I looked back at the laundry (I wonder why) and I saw something very unusual. A man passed by the Laundry door/window looking inside with his hands on his pockets. He didn’t look poor or homeless or anything out of the ordinary. But I had a  strange feeling that something wasn’t right with that man. I kept looking at him, He entered, looked around the machines and went toward the automatic central machine. I said to myself that I had to return there and see if he wasn’t going to do something funny to MY washing machines. I found him with his fingers in the return coins slot (of course it was empty as I took the change before) he looked at me and did nothing, his hands on his pockets. I took a look at one of the machines and went out. (I couldn’t remain with him inside). Arriving at the car I saw him searching for the cctv (there were 2) then he stood by the door, as if he was waiting for something. Actually he was. There was a girl outside who was waiting for someone, she was very close to the window, she could see him do whatever he wanted to do. Then my dad thought of showing himself, he stood out of the car looking at him. The man, went out of the laundry straight away, walked for about 60meters  and hid himself around a corner. After a few minutes, we saw him at the corner still looking toward the laundry. So my dad went out of the car and began filming him. The guy looked ill at ease, so he faked his indifference and walked by us and made his way into a cafe. We haven’t seen him since. He probably went out by another door.

I believe that he wanted to steal the automatic cashier. It was really weird.

Poem #17

Pouring rain 

wash down my sorrows

falling deep into the shadows

drops of water

calm my sadness 

and melt my weariness

lost between sky and earth

where my mind tears apart

taking all the mirth

dark clouds of dust

violently pull memories 

which should be forgotten 

leaving no glories 

to dwell alone rotten

without will

without hope

take my wish

away from this torment

so that you may restore 

those cheerful moments 

to their original dwelling 

as they were before


Poetry #16

Snatcher of souls

Give back what you stole 

There was bliss and joy

Now terror and deception

Rise to destroy 

Bring back the Essence 

With which my body lives

Through million lives

Return my Presence 

And I’ll spear your existence  

beyond death and fate

Or I shall hunt your conscience 

For It will be too late

Cursed to the bone

Forever All alone

What about …. #55

Meditation isn’t an act of a specific religion, some think that you have to be Hindu or Buddhist to practice it; but it’s wrong. Anyone can do it, and as much as this will astonish you, All the prophets of ancient times, (i.e of the Monotheistic religions) practiced it. How can you explain the hours of adoration by themselves either of Jesus, Mohammed, Abraham, Noe…..? Of course they had the know how. And they were more capable than us, as they were Men of God.

I’m not an expert on meditation, but I use it a lot even without being aware of it. So I’ll explain basically how and why you should perform this self awareness everyday.

Meditation relieve stress, anxiety, fear, depression and other things of which I’m not aware of yet. 

It is a way to to be at peace with ones soul and to let this one take leadership over the body. And it is also a way to be in contact with God as you use your soul.
So start by selecting a quiet place which you’ll be using as often as possible, sit or lay comfortably (but not too much or you’ll fall asleep). Now begin by breathing slowly. For a beginner it is best to keep breathing without stopping the flow of thoughts. Just breath normally trying to listen to the “nothing”. Focus on the sound that you hear in the quiet place you are in; which should be Nothing. 

After a few days of practice, you should try to limit your thoughts. I personally think that it’s not easy at all. But try non the less. Practice the listening of the “Nothing” and limit your thoughts as much as you can but don’t force too much, just enough to concentrate on the Nothingness around you. This will take time, but practice makes perfect.

After some time, when you feel ready for the next step, try to focus on your heart beat, you should be able to hear it. You should be able to hear your breath and your heart beating quietly. 

When you are used to it, try to focus on your inside and your breath, you should stop more thoughts, and concentrated harder on your inner self. 

By that time you should be able to stop any source of thought and any sound coming from the outside penetrating inside your head. 

Then you should be at peace with yourself.

Assuming the future is good, I find my relatives and through DNA prove I’m their ancestor. They help me learn what happened with my kids, and teach me the new technology and what has changed. I become a lecturer, talking about my life in the 21st century. I write a book about my experiences and it’s turned into a virtual reality movie. Eventually, after life extending rejuvenation treatments, I meet a wonderful woman who completes me, and I settle down with her and explore the planets, life and sensuous pleasures together.

My answer :
Finding oneself a few centuries into the future is not an easy thing. It means that I don’t exist and that I don’t know anyone around me. Well I’ll take a good look around me to see how the society lives. I probably have to spend a night or two outside, till I find a house of God. I’ll try to seek shelter in it  for a few days till I find the right person to tell the truth. I’ll probably enjoy myself among new tech and have some fun. If there is no way to come back I’ll ask for a job if the humans still work or I’ll take my chances to live as a lone wolf.
