Mysterious Encounters of Everyday Life

It seems these days that we want to understand, explain and find a use for everything we encounter. If we get stuck, we can find an answer on Google or some other search engine. Often we become so involved in the practical that we completely miss most of the little delights along our life path. This seems especially true of things which have no easy explanation.

At the end of the day, many people add up what they have accomplished since they got out of bed. I wonder how many people count the little delights which have passed their way during the day. If you become too busy with the practical, you will most likely miss the fanciful.

So what? The question is what your life is for. What is its meaning? If you just count what you accomplish in a day, you have a list at the end of the day and start a new one the next day. But there is more to life if you allow it into your awareness. I am talking about the little mysteries which present themselves along the way.

Here are a few that might have caught your attention at least for a moment. How do two incomplete cells become a human being or any other life form? How does our solar system stay in balance century after century? How does a single atom stay in balance for that matter? How does your mind interpret what your senses encounter? What does it mean to fall in love with someone?






You could most likely find scientific explanations for all these mysteries and consider the problem solved. What if you don't seek practical answers right away or even at all? What if you instead ponder the mystery and coexist with it? You move to a different plane of existence beyond the practical. Art and music has a meaning for you beyond what you can express in words.

A newspaper critic can tell you how well the music was performed technically. But a critic can't tell you whether or how music touches your soul. The same is true of any other form of art. Your experience is beyond the technical aspects and is unique to you. Philosophers are in agreement that you can't argue about taste. No on else is quite like you.

Did you ever try to explain your artistic taste to someone else? Not so easy, is it? The same can be said of your experience of nature, the world, other people and especially the unique aspects of you as a person. It is a different way to exist, but you might want to try it at least for a while.

Life Lessons:

*Turn off the rational part of you and stop thinking for a while.
*Let yourself notice little things around you without trying to make sense of them.
*Sit comfortably with your feelings without analyzing them.
*Spend a little time delighting in something you never noticed before.

See if this makes the rest of your life a little more fun.

A Ghost in My Living Room

Paranormal encounters might happen to anyone out there. A lot of people have experienced these types of encounters, and I will tell you one that happened to me when I was a kid.

I was 7 and had a bad earache. I wanted to tell Mom about it right away, so I walked out of the room in no time. Then, I saw someone who was just sitting on the living room table. This happened just a couple of feet away from my beautiful bedroom. I noticed that this ghost looked rather weird with her face somewhat distorted. The room was truly dark and I was not able to see very well, so I was not able to tell the figure apart.

I screamed right away upon seeing this figure almost in front of me.

The person, or ghost, just shook her head, and I just started to feel really scared. My Mom was approaching the scene while the ghost was shaking her head again. I thought that the best thing to do in such a case was to go back to my bedroom so I did not have to walk past this ghost or person again. I just climbed in…

What is TOBE and how it can be implemented in the paranormal research field

TOBE is a universal idea and concept stemming from the paranormal research field, It seeks to promote the only fact within this entire field of study. Paranormal researchers from a North Florida based paranormal research and study group (North Florida Mystery Trackers) pinned down the ideal and concept after many years of researching and studying a variety of haunted locations among other mysterious sites in Florida, only to come to conclusions that can only be presented as a theory, opinion, belief or an experience. The outside world can't and never will accept evidence collected during a paranormal field investigation as complete proof of the afterlife. 

projecttobe.com will serve as the only official online home of TOBE. If you come across any other site or social media page claiming to represent TOBE, It's not an official page. Content posted on projecttobe.com will be shared on social media by it's readers and North Florida Mystery Trackers
