Echoes or Residual Fate?

I have a notion that sometimes a life event of some significance has an echo a number of years later. That echo may be a reminder of the previous event and perhaps the need to recapitulate it or it may be an indicator of residual fate, some stuff that must get done in a given lifetime. It is difficult to differentiate between these two themes. The only real indicator is the relative permanence. The echo will fade faster than residual fate.

If for example, we were fated to meet then that fate would keep presenting until we did. If we had learning to do together, the universe would bring us together, whether we liked it or not.

It is easy to get into a mind spin considering lost opportunities, squandered fate and the like.

My dream yesterday is pointing me back to a particular time of life. The time when I was exploring spirituality. At the time I was a can of Red Stripe and a spliff, {several} sort of guy. What I noted in many of the so-called spirituality gigs was that there were a lot of “grey hairs” as in people. The gatherings were conducted, smoke free, with a cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich. Much like high tea at a boarding school or at the church centre after service. Others were obsessed with vegetarianism and healthy eating. There was a lot of polite small talk and it seemed to me a holier than thou mentality. I was in my thirties. I thought to myself; “If you guys are recruiting and trying to get people to join your ageing organisation, this is not the way to do it, time-warp city Arizona.” Some tried to evangelize vegetarianism to me. This didn’t impress the then hardcore vegan.

Unless you are really perverted the attitude of a boarding school Matron all name tags in underpants etc. is not overly attractive. Grannies telling you how to behave isn’t alluring.

And now I am that age myself.

What do I see? I see the “youth” apparently obsessed with their ‘phones and their image. If I was thirty years younger, I might even be sending dick picks to potential girlfriends. I too have become a dinosaur.

I have postulated that my recent patent application is little more than an echo of events 20 years previous. In a similar way the post of Toltec things yesterday is contemporary of that ancient phase space too.

Everybody has to gain life experience to learn and maybe it is only when one has messed up a sufficient number of times that one really turns towards learning. So maybe spirituality is a property of age? I hope not.

If I was cynical, I could get someone to write some spirituality app. and then flog it on the internet.

The question is will that phase space re-phase into an echo or actual residual fate, work to do before I shuffle of the mortal coil and pop my clogs, kick the bucket etc.
