Alternate Realities and the Moose


 

Written by: The Bashful Country Boy

The thought of a parallel universe is far beyond the comprehension of many
people. However, this could answer some of mankind’s oldest questions.

Many times people see objects or beings that are in fact unexplainable as to
how they could be where they are seen. Many times these beings come and
go in an instant, even before we consciously realize or can comprehend
what we have just seen.


Have you ever tried to explain one of these events to a friend? I’m sure in most cases, your friend was ready to have you committed. It is my firm belief these events do take place, there have just been too many of them
for it to be  a figment of one’s imagination. Taking into consideration there is many times physical evidence of the encounter makes it hard to explain it away.

Several years ago , I experienced one such event. It all began as I was driving to work one cold snowy Indiana morning, and as is normally the case, it was over before I had a chance to fully realize what had occurred.

I had traveled down this particular road many , many times, it was near where I lived and was a popular route for many people to travel from one
town to another.  Because of the familiarity and remote nature of the drive, one’s mind could easily drift off in thought. Such was the case this morning, hardly thinking about where I was or what I was doing, I approached a familiar stop sign.

Thinking more about the cold and dreary workday ahead of me than my current surroundings, I prepared to turn on the approaching road and proceed to work. As I looked to my right at a snow covered bank along the road, I suddenly saw a  rather large moose awkwardly climbing up the hill.

This got my attention as I had never seen a real live moose before , they are by no stretch of the imagination a native species of Indiana. The closest animal to a moose found in these parts would be a deer, but this was no deer. The moose was at least three times larger than a deer and I have never seen a deer with antlers the size of the rack on this beast.

As the moose struggled to climb the hill I turned onto the coming road and soon lost sight of the animal. Not thinking to stop and observe, I continued on my way and never saw the visitor from another world again.

This was many years before I developed an interest in the paranormal and even though I thought about it occasionally,  I pretty much forgot about it. Thinking back it may have been a wake up call for me to investigate further the possibility of life in other dimensions .

I had often thought about the concept of alternate or a parallel universe. There are many ways they could exist and after studying the concept and from personal experience, I am convinced they do indeed exist.

Some of the parallel universes are many, many light years away, however even those as well as many of the more common are here with us now, existing along side our daily lives. The reason we don’t observe them is they are operating at a different vibrational rate than we living in the
third dimension .

I often liken it to tuning a radio, even though a radio can play many different formats, the only one we can hear is the particular station we are tuned into. So it is with alternate universes, the only one we observe is the one we are tuned into and operating at the same frequency
.

When we observe something like the moose or another extraterrestrial form, it means we have  some how accessed a path to an alternate reality. I feel we are the ones doing this and not the entity, as one can observe the alternate dimension while someone sitting next to us sees nothing.

If the alien life form entered our reality, they would be visible to all who are near us. This very often is not the case. The encounter is normally an individual event or one experienced by only a few people, not large masses. Thus, these encounters as well as all things of a spiritual nature are a matter of personal evolvement and enlightenment and as such are not seen or experienced by the masses.

Destiny Wins Out


Sometimes  destiny  plays  itself out over several years  and events that happen  years before the final outcome can come into play, and thus have a positive outcome to what could have been an unpleasant experience.
Such was the case with my military experience during the Vietnam conflict during the 1960s. Graduating from high school in 1962, I was a prime candidate for military service when the Vietnam War started in 1963. I would be the first in my immediate family to serve in the military, my grandfather was on a train headed for basic training when World War 1 ended, and my dad was deferred during WW2  because of his bad knees.

I really had no issues with serving my country during this time, and even though there was much opposition to this war, I decided that if needed I would serve. I could see where possibly our actions there could benefit the citizens of that tiny country, which in time, even though the outcome was less than desired, the Vietnamese people did ultimately benefit from our involvement.

The time was 1963, the war was heating up and the draft numbers were increasing, since I had no desire to attend college and no plans to get married, I was a prime candidate for the draft. Thinking it over, I realized there was something about sleeping in a fox hole in the jungle that I just didn’t think I could handle. I would have fared much better in Iraq where there are no jungles.

Not wanting to shirk my duty, I thought about my options. At about the same time, I discovered an Air Force Reserve base about 40 miles from my home. This seemed like a good option, the Air Force is all about service and support, something I could believe in.

As fate would have it, several of my friends had the same idea and as a result about twenty of us all joined the Air Force, and off we all went to basic training, spread over about 3 months. I was ecstatic, I had been assigned to Load Master school and would be on the flight crew of a C-119. This wing had a habit of being called to active duty during times of need, as it had been activated during the Korean Conflict and again during the Cuban Missile Crisis. but that didn’t bother me, at least I wasn’t sleeping in a foxhole.

During basic training, my flight was located next to the Officers Training barracks and I even contemplated going regular Air Force and trying to get into flight school. However, the idea soon vanished and I returned to my original plan.

Soon after that, I received new orders, I would be attending supply school in Amarillo Texas instead of Load Master School at Shepard AFB. What’s up with this? Instead of flying every week end, I’m handing out T-Shirts to flight crews. Oh Well.

I have to admit, I did kind of pout about it for four years.

1968 was beginning and life was changing, having decided to get married in July, and with only a year and a half left of military duty, we purchased a house and was ready to settle down. At the same time, the war in Vietnam was heating up, and  the Tet Offensive was  in high gear, my Wing was activated for active duty scheduled to deploy the first Monday in May.

It probably couldn’t have come at a worse time, contemplating what to do we decided  rather than postpone everything, we opted to get married before I left.We had already bought a house  and made all the plans, all we needed to do was move everything forward about three months.

Everything worked out perfectly, despite the fact we were getting married in the spring, the height of the wedding season, the church, reception hall, and photographers were all available. The wedding went off without a hitch.

I had taken a leave of absence from work so I had a couple of weeks before I left for Nam. Everything was going as scheduled, but things were about to change.

The Friday morning previous to when I was scheduled to leave, the phone rang about 7 AM. It was my mom inquiring as to whether I was still going to Vietnam, she had heard on the radio that my squadron had been de-activated. I didn’t realize she knew what squadron I was in, calling immediately it was confirmed that indeed, I no longer was scheduled for active duty, they were only taking the airmen on flying status.

Then it hit me! If my orders hadn’t been changed 4 years previous, I would have been spending a year in the jungle. I spent about fifteen minutes being depressed about not having to leave, then began planning my new life. I can only assume my family has served enough in previous existences that our karma has been fulfilled.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric science’s claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

A Search for Truth: The Hidden Mysteries of Masonry


Your Inspirational online store

My search for truth began many years ago, but I truly began in earnest shortly after joining the Masonic Lodge in 1974.  I have always been a seeker, one to not always follow the conventional wisdom of the time.

It may even be said masonry played a part in my survival, even before I had become a member. April 3, 1974, was an eventful day in the midwestern United States. For those that remember we encountered a massive outbreak of tornadoes, with over 140 tornadoes reported over a 12 state area.


I had petitioned for membership in the local Masonic Lodge and as a result, the three brothers appointed to my investigative team were scheduled to interview me the same evening. Trying to be home in time for the appointment, I rescheduled my day to save time, and as a result, I was not in the area stricken by a massive tornado, even though I had a front row seat about two miles away.

Even while attending Sunday School and church as a youth, I couldn’t help but think there had to be more to life and spirituality than I was being taught. Things just didn’t add up, as a result I petitioned the Masonic Lodge seeking further light.

The lessons taught there certainly clarified a few things, but they always talked out the hidden mysteries of masonry, and I couldn’t help but wonder what they were talking about. I soon found that in masonry as well as most other spiritual organizations, to seek further enlightenment one has to seek on his own. This is well and good and is the way it should be, everyone progress at their own rate and thus it is sometimes a lonely journey.

So, quite unknowing at the time, I began my search for truth. As of today  that search has taken me to most of the United States, many different countries and four continents, it has been an incredible journey. The best part it, it isn’t over, and it never will be.

As long as there is a breath in our soul, we search, often times without our conscious knowledge or desire. Every day and every action and reaction is evidence of our continuous search for our truth.

I have found , that even though my interpretation of truth may change and evolve, universal truths never change. They are the same today as they were ten thousand years ago. Truth is eternal and unchanging. They are the very rock and foundation of humanity, they will always be there for us to come back to as we travel our path through eternity on our way to enlightenment.

I continual every day to pursue my truth, may you always find the path to your truth inspiring and enlightening.
