About this title


A Resurrection can be: a defining moment or incident, a restoration of balance, an epiphany, a spiritual awakening, a solution, an escape from distress or simply leaving behind a life of quiet desperation. It might even be realizing that what you have or what you are is pretty good after all. Or it may be as perplexing as trying to understand the dream that helped you to resolve a difficult problem. Resurrections may result from focusing your attention and every conceivable resource to work your way through a troublesome situation. Or, it may be discovering you have insights or abilities beyond your wildest dreams. A resurrection may be like being in the Zone, occasionally teasing you with a glimpse of what is preternaturally possible but remaining elusive and mysterious. Resurrections can be changes, improvements or discoveries. They may include recognizing and understanding the significance of signs, details, nuances, implications and suggestions; occurring when we finally "connect the dots" and solve the riddles. A resurrection can be effectively dealing with adversity, perhaps in a way beyond our immediate comprehension, challenging everything we´ve learned, believed and thought we knew. People are said to be "wired" differently, and there is every reason to believe that discovering and developing our unique areas of strength and ways of "seeing" may produce what we can now only label as extrasensory perceptions or intuitions. It may be that when we are under duress, our minds can extend their range and perhaps show us what they can really do. It may be exactly like the miraculous physical feats of strength people have been known to perform under extreme conditions. Those who may have experienced very unusual mental insights would naturally be hesitant to say anything, and an otherwise normal individual who discovers atypical abilities would be well advised to keep it to themselves. They should learn to understand and develop them quietly, but certainly not inadvertently dilute, discourage, suppress or exorcise a "gift" because it may be startling, unsettling or it isn´t explainable in familiar terms and contexts. The following fictitious vignettes are inspired by real experiences and then embellished. Although the stories are very different, they have several common threads. They involve people who don´t suppress their insights, they actively explore their worlds, and they face conflicts and difficult issues head on. They allow their instincts, intuition, reasoning, curiosity and innate abilities to flourish, empower and help them. You will find adventure, deceit, romance, honest talk, real issues and psychic/supernatural influences in the stories. Each vignette can stand on its own, and the characters´ lives often intersect and continue as the various stories unfold. Please sit back and enjoy a very different and stimulating intellectual ride. Some of these incidents can stretch the limits of our imaginations. We can ignore them or we can choose to explore their significance and perhaps learn something new. We all try to categorize events in our minds in an orderly fashion, but perhaps we´re overly constrained by our limited number of words, the few concepts we have to work with, and the unknown manner in which events/actions may actually influence one another. If chance, randomness and chaos are the natural order of things, then all the more reason to take as much control as you can. Why not try and summon and focus any and all possible energies to help organize events you can have control over to help achieve your purposes? Use superstitions, rites, objects, prayers, meditating or whatever, there´s every reason to try, it may indeed do some good; provided you also supplement those efforts with tangible action. We simply don´t know what´s possible if we are able to put our conscious and subconscious efforts to work simultaneously. Scientists and philosophers all seem to agree
