I guess I wasn’t quite clear. What I was trying to say is that I find comfort in the idea that something outside of myself is providing me the comfort I need. I know that it may very well be my subconcious mind at work, but I find more comfort in the belief that it comes from outside me.
That is not to say that I see ghosts, or that I truly and deeply believe in ghosts. I believe that people are very suggestible, which explains haunted houses to my satisfaction.
On the other hand, don’t close the door to faith. I don’t mean faith in God, or faith in ghosts, or faith in any one thing. I mean FAITH. Some of you have a faith in science bordering on the religious. That’s fine, but recognise it for what it is: an analog of the religious faith that your science sometimes opposes. Faith is a good thing, it’s just that sometimes it gets dressed up in fighting clothes and people forget what it is that they have faith in.
So, I’ll stay here with whatever part of my grandmother protects me, and you can debate your ghosts and your truths as long as you wish. Enjoy.
Oh, and about the naked truth? Just think about how silly most of us look naked. Do you think that the truth is any more attractive? If it was, then there would be no reason to tell your wife she looks fine in those new pants that make her bottom look larger than usual, right?
