If you think it, check it.
It could be a dumb thought, anything, like, you are approaching an alley, there is a trashcan in the alley, and it goes through your head, someone could be behind that trashcan in that alley.
Generally speaking, this would be paranoia. Generally speaking, someone who, walking towards an alley who said, We are not taking this alley tonight, there could be someone behind the trashcan in that alley? Would be viewed as kind of crazed whacked out.
Here is the thing about me. When I think those things? When they go through my head? Strongly enough or just fleetingly enough I am willing to say, Not going there, we take a longer route?
Most of the time, people just humor me, without knowing why, they sort of have to, I am pretty insistent, but sometimes?
Sometimes after I say that, the news comes on and is kind of scary and someone says, Good thing we did not go that way tonight. And then they look at me. Funny.
There is a card in the animal cards I own. It is Rabbit. It is a funny card. Just a rabbit. But it has this story. In the story, the rabbit and his buddy are on a trail, walking forward, and his buddy says, We are in danger. And the rabbit says, How do you know? And the friend says, I do not know, we just are, step aside. And they do.
And sure enough, danger comes, but it passes them by.
And then they continue on the trail, but the rabbit is looking side eyes at his friend. “How did he know?”
Rabbit and his friend enter three areas of danger, and every time Rabbit’s friend says, We are in danger, they step aside, and it saves them.
And then, Rabbit says to his friend, I fear you.
And Rabbit’s friend says, I have magic that has saved us three times, and you, because of my love for you, and at the end of that, all you do is fear me? And Rabbit’s friend goes away.
I am Rabbit’s friend.
