The magic man and the leap of faith #2014
A few weeks ago, I was having lunch at a shop in Ipoh. It was one of those hideouts in the city, an old building that was turned into a beautiful eatery. The place was a bit dark, randomly placed lights strewn across the restaurant gave it a rather playful sinister atmosphere. As I was enjoying a cup of coffee, an eccentric indian man wearing a crisp white shirt with those pullover thingys kept passing by our table. He was so in awe of the restaurant that he walked around taking photographs of the art on the wall, smiled widely as he snapped away, contented to find such a beautiful resto.
I don’t know what made me do it, but I invited him to our table to share a cup of coffee. He cordially accepted my invitation and sat in front of me. A very friendly chap he was, but there was something about him that caught my attention. I did not know what it was, but I felt like I just had to chat with him that afternoon.
He turned out to be an Indian from India who has been staying in Germany all his life. A scientist! Who would have thought. He researches on geology, energy and aura. The way he spoke, how excited he was with his work and the stories he told were so surreal. Because he researches in energy and aura, he said he has this capability of feeling things. Peoples energy, the earths energy, the energy of a building. He could do all that. I did not know whether I should believe him or to term his as a wacko. He showed us pictures of the latest conferences he went, the machines he invented. It was unbelievable.
He was brought to malaysia by a gold company to find gold using his talent, and at the moment he is in Ipoh because they needed his help to find gold in a gold mine. I can’t even believe that I actually had this weird conversation a few weeks ago. So surreal.
He asked me what I was working as. I told him I was a doctor. He was so happy to learn that I was one that he took my hand and shook it out of happiness.
And then it happened.
As he held my hand, he closed his eyes for a moment, and when he opened it he said …
"You are the rarest of the rarest"
He looked at me and babbled something about the energy and aura that he felt from me, something about the near future. I don’t quite remember what he said, but whatever it was, it seemed so true. It was not like he was reading my future, it was like he was reading me. I believe that you know. Who we are, the aura we exhude.
Anyway, what he said really made me think.
Perhaps I do have a bigger reason to be on this earth than just be an average human being.
So that will be my new years resolution….. #2014 = to be above average.
I guess an end-of-the-years new years resolution is so cliche. I make mine like 4 days later, such a procrastinator am i. Sigh. 2013 was the year I started my work life. There were ups and downs, lots of stressful moments, but lots of happy ones too. Life has been good so far, may 2014 be a better one :)
I can’t believe that I will be 27 this year! I feel so old. As I watched the clock struck midnight, signifying the end of 2013, I felt that this year I should do things differently. Do things I was afraid of most, take chances…this is the year for my leap of faith. I don’t want to be stagnant, going with the flow, just like everyone else. I know I am more than this, I know I can achieve more in my life if I just take my heavy butt of the seat. you know. I have always had this feeling in my heart that i was meant for greater things, I just need a push. A reason.
Can getting older be a reason for me to kickstart my resolution?
* I really want to tell more about the magic man, but i have to get ready for work. Its nearly 11pm, sheesh. Only vampires go out to work at this time. -__-
