Hi guys, my name is Matias and i´am really enjoying my experience in achieving enlightment. I hope you guys can help me to understand this question that i´ve been having for quite a while. First, i´am going to give you a little of a backstory so you guys can understand the situation.
I already know there is no such thing as Demons, Angels, God, or the Devil. However i recently remembered something EXTREMELY weird happened to me and my mom. I was just about to go for my bike riding routine when my mom SCREAMED for my name. As i heard i runned up to see what had happened, and i saw the hair sprayer slowly moving by itself. It lasted for about 3 seconds, but the memory stays with me 3 months later.
Even till this day i cannot explain how it happened. The bottom was dry, and no one was moving it. It´s funny because i used to be this anti-religious guy who didn´t believe in any of that crap, but this question has stayed with me since then; Do Ghosts really exist? and if not, How did that happen? What´s the explanation?
I can’t say what actually happened on that day, but I wouldn’t be so sure that there are no such things as demon, angels, god, or the devil if I were you. Maybe they do not exist in the same way they are depicted in religious texts, but different cultures and their religions use these terms to describe forces in our world. The light and the dark that we may not understand or appreciate. Religious texts speak in metaphors, but that doesn’t mean the stories aren’t real. You can hear the scream of “ghost” from around the world within cultures that have had no connections. The path to enlightenment is a beautiful one, but in it you will be able to appreciate the darkness. It is the yin and the yang. The angels and the demons.
Spirits possibly do exist, I for one believe they do. It probably could have been a spirit although why would you presume it’s evil or anything? It could be a good spirit or neutral. Maybe it was dark and trying to scare you, who knows? Best not to live in the past. Live in this moment :) goodluck on your journey :)
