    Oct 5 2012: I once rented an apartment to a former tarot card reader. He told me his story:
    He had been reading the cards for quite some time with great success when he saw the death of his best friend. The cards told him when, but not how. He tried, but was unable to determine how his friend would die. When he got word that his friend was dead, he seriously began to consider the cards - had he ever seen anything that was of value to him, and could he have changed anything if he wanted to? He was unable to find a single time in which reading the cards had provided anything good. He then began to think: what if he should see his own death - how would this affect him? The more he thought about it, the more he became convinced that the cards were evil. He burned them, never to read them again. He said he has been a lot happier since.

    My former roommate saw the death of my first wife nearly four years before I met her. At the time, I didn't believe in fortune telling. After her death, I realized that she had brought many blessings to my life. Had I believed my former roommate at the start, I may have chosen not to marry her and lost out on what I gained.

    We are seeing all sorts of predictions of impending doom in the media concerning revelation, Nostradamus, and the end of the Mayan calendar. The problem with such predictions is that they don't provide specifics that will offer any relief from the anxiety that people feel. Nor do they provide a vision for where you fit in.
    I have determined that the end of the Mayan calendar has nothing to do with the end of the world prophesy, and that such prophesy deals with transitions and not ends as we know the term.

    As far as God is concerned, I do not believe in a God as religion supports, but do believe in God through personal spiritual experience. What God revealed to me has undermined much of what religion taught me. I feel I have a guide that leads me to know what I need to know. The rest I leave to faith.

    Oct 1 2012: Bhaskar, Religion (God) represernts a belief system. We all need to have hopes and dreams. I am not sure it would be a good idea to know our future. However, it is a good idea to prepare for what you choose to pursue. If you wish to be a medical professional you need to develop the skills and knowledges in order to be the doctor or nurse you have set as your goal. In that way you are shaping your future and enhancing the odds of achieving your goal.

    In many of the religions in your part of the world is a thing called Karma. One of the explainations of Karma in the western world is that you reap what you sow.

    Plant the seeds of your future and then reap the rewards of your labors.

    Do not waver in your faith. Do not limit your dreams. Do not rest on your accomplishments.

    I wish you well on your journey into the future.

    All the best. Bob.

      Oct 2 2012: Thanks Robert for your valuable suggestions towards life and i was surprised that you talked about KARMA and whatever you do, enjoy the every moment of the life/

        Oct 2 2012: Bhasakar, I try to learn, appreciate, and enjoy all teachings and attempt to display the proper respect.

        If I might ask why you were surprised that I talked about Karma. I hope that I used the expression correctly.

        It is my intent to be encouraging and supportive as much as possible to all TED members. We can and will have different points of view but we must respectfully engage in discourse to present information and ideas to be considered not forced upon each other.

        All the best. Bob.

    Sep 30 2012: What role does GOD play in your reality. He plays none in mine.

    I was once a practicing psychic. I gave up when people began depending on me. Life your best moment now and the future will take care of itself kindly.

      Sep 30 2012: You were? Were you honnestly selling what you thought was true about the future, or were you making a buck telling people what they needed to hear to improve their lives?

        Sep 30 2012: I didn't charge. Curious thing ... when I tried to charge $$$, I no longer had access to that which came so naturally when I did not charge. So I gave that first for-money person back the money, and then gave her a reading, I was able to help her sort through situations. I never considered charging after that. I had a very loyal following because I was so accurate.

        It's hard to tell someone what they need to hear to improve their lives when you don't know the first thing about them. It's nearly impossible to give a psychic reading to a good friend or family member.

        Example: I had a young couple come to me. As soon as they sat down, I saw them getting married on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. I was living in Maine at the time - very near the ocean - so when I thought of the ocean, I thought of it as being in the east. But this couple was clearly looking WEST, which made so sense. So I told them that I might not be able to get anything valid, and why. They laughed, and said they were just back from Spain where they were married on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic - thus were facing west. I didn't know the couple.

        We are all psychic. It's just that most are unaware of their "feelings", as opposed to emotions. Emotions block out feelings. Feelings are a universal language.

        Dr. Daryl Bern (psychologist and professor emeritus at Cornell) had his research about psi peer-reviewed last year. He showed (with an accuracy of 74 billion to one) that people are psychic (though they don't know it). He showed with even greater accuracy that those who consider themselves risk takers (recognize the risks and make informed decisions) are much more psychic than those who see the risk and become paralyzed by their fear.

        It's a real ability. But I will admit that there are many people who are charlatans. That's why I tell people who ask about a reading to accept ONLY word-of-mouth recommendations before seeing a psychic.

          Sep 30 2012: So when you say most people are psysich... It's a metaphor, right? You actually mean some people have the ability to analyse available information and use it to make pretty valuable predictions, right?

        Sep 30 2012: No. I mean that it would be a rare exception - perhaps autism or a mental illness might interfere.

          Oct 1 2012: " perhaps autism or a mental illness might interfere."

          With what?
      • thumb
        Oct 1 2012: Those with autism do not have the ability to access their feelings, and feelings, being a language (feelings as OPPOSED to emotions) are what I read/see/experience when I give a psychic reading.

      Sep 30 2012: I agree with you but whenever i tried to do something i have been stopped by somebody.
      Should i blame them or it is my destiny

        Sep 30 2012: You create your own destiny. The trick is being aware of your own internal processes so that you can create the best reality that you know how.
