Most of you know I ruptured my achilles tendon on Zodiac a bit over a month ago. The story is linked on the trip report tab and online at

http://www.yosemiteclimber.com/Zodiacthreelegs.html

Here's some trippy Ju Ju

First, an astrologer in India predicted an ankle or shoulder injury around this time of this year for me as far back as two years ago. Believe me, I didn't 'will' or 'expect' some Alien popping to fulfill his prediction. Still, it was trippy because this guy knew extremely detailed items from my life and the life of my girlfriend. One example (he didn't even have my girlfriend's legal name) he told her she had 8 nieces and nephews. She said, "sorry but there are only 7" He said. "one died" She got pale "Yup, you're right, forgot about the one that died" Stuff not available via the net or any source. Who knows how such a thing really works but there's a lot more out there than we hear about everyday.

Second, my girlfriend had been nervous about me going on this El Cap Climb. She had been having repeated dreams in which I died. The same or a similar dream, over and over. The weird thing was that in the dream, people were gathering for my memorial in a stone house surrounded by mountains and John Bachar was always in the dream, comforting her and telling her the real scoop about how our ideas about death were wrong and what things were really like.

When I was getting ready to be the preacher for Brutus of Wyde's memorial, I posted an image of the Stonehouse outside Lone Pine where his memorial would take place. I'd never been there myself.



She saw the picture and said "That's the place in my dreams! Remember I said it was a stonehouse without actual glass in the windows or doors in the doorways?"

Trippy stuff.

Then I paid tribute to Brutus at the stonehouse and continued on to Burning Man. When I was there, I remembered that it was a tradition to honor fallen friends by writing their names inside the "Temple" at Burning Man which would be burned at the end of the festival. I decided to make a point of writing the names of my friends Brutus and John inside the temple walls. The funny thing was, when I was writing their names on the wood, I wrote "Brutus" and was trying to write "Bachar" but next wrote "baba" by mistake, almost automatically. It gave me a chill!

There's been a couple strange coinkydinks since then as well.

So I'm not sure why I'm writing this stuff. Maybe ya'll have some spooky stories. Maybe I dodged a bullet and only jacked my ankle.

But just in case there's more to the story, if anything were to happen to me, I just want to say that I've had a fantastic life, I don't hold a hard feeling against anyone in this world, and I'm grateful for all the blessings for life from my friends, family and everybody.

But really, I feel like I'm going to be an old man someday, it's just been a trippy year

Peace

Karl, you're a good man. What do you have to fear of dying?

You're not gonna die as far as I can tell, but sh#t happens. You seem way too 'needed' here to be allowed passage.


That said, maybe someone is talking to you. I'm not sure the message, but it seems clear that 'the Gods have spoken' to you. Maybe you're misinterpreting the message. Or maybe you need a massage. I dunno....

Karl,

I have found that it is not when you expect something that it happens.

Things trippy happen when you usually have no clue, idea or warning.

And most often those things do not happen to you.

Being a jesus follower I have learned much, but leave the difficulties and end results up to him. Peace Always, lynne

Trippy juju? O.K. here's some. I witnessed some spontaneous bleeding from a persons hand last week. She said her hands and face were really hot and the blood started to trickle out of a finger and part of her palm. No cuts. I saw it very close up. She was a little freaked and I told her not to worry, that she has the juju.

I'm waiting for nature, Anders, et al., to start saying you need more Omega 3's and B-12.

Nothing can go down without first getting the green light from Him.

We will keep you covered, with prayer.

Got no worries about death. If it comes, I'm ready as could be.

If it doesn't, I'm ready to enjoy the adventure of this world and serve the cause of peace and love everywhere to the extent I'm able.

I don't believe in "accidents" but also think that even if there is a "reason" for everything, it's not necessarily a simple or rational reason.

Not resisting this injury either. I'm taking the time to do some writing that I've been neglecting (yet again supertopo being a favorite vice that I'm trying to keep a reasonable but not wasteful part of my time> Love Ya'll too much!)

Just thought I'd share to see what comes up.

Brutus's passing had it's own trippy forshadowing (drawings and poems in his climbing Journal many years earlier, and calling me on the phone claiming to be the "angel of death" shortly before his accident)

I've always had a strong inner feeling of living a long time but perhaps I've been "reassigned" More likely is the "Shamanic Death" where life as we lived it changes dramatically within and without and we embark on a new chapter of our existence. I feel that coming for sure.

Peace

...Achilles is in your alleyway,
He don't want me here,
He does brag.
He's pointing to the sky
And he's hungry, like a man in drag.
How come you get someone like him to be your guard?
You know I want your lovin',
Honey, but you're so hard.

I've never yet said anything about vitamins or diet on SuperTopo, except for admitting to a liking for chocolate. Why would I start now?

One time, when we were Climbing Aquarius, I was calmly belaying and looking at my right hand which was discolored and swollen the same size from mid forearm to my knuckles from a cat bite the night before we left on the trip, and wondering if I had grip strength effective enough to catch a fall, When the feeling hit me; "The Colonel is gonna take a big one." Immediately i switched the belay to my left hand. No sooner had I done that than said Colonel took a ride!
I mentioned it to him afterward and he calmly said, " Any time you get those feelings, feel free to act on 'em!"

The next five el cap routes, every time Frank would get scared on lead, he would serenely ask me if I was getting "those feelings."......

When he took a fifty footer a few years later, on 'scalito I felt no prescience, whatsoever. I was processing a coffee jones....

Good Question...

It's all out there, one just needs to be tuned in that's all...
too many distractions for the signals most often...

and this;
"...But just in case there's more to the story, if anything were to happen to me, I just want to say that I've had a fantastic life, I don't hold a hard feeling against anyone in this world, and I'm grateful for all the blessings for life from my friends, family and everybody..."

Karl, we should all be so lucky to be able to say that.
oh, and by the way, "Got no worries about death. If it comes, I'm ready as could be."

Not if, but when...
but then,
so too will I
This is all a gift.

Cheers,
DD

Well, here goes.
This is pretty personal btw.

Shortly after I turned thirteen, some I know say, "I got a word from the Lord". And I know His voice. This is very uncommon this day and age btw.
It has in fifty years only happened, perhaps, a half dozen times to me.

My older cousin who was 19 had a little baby, less than a year old. I heard one morning Him say that the baby was going to die on Friday.

I was filled with immediate grief, a very deep overwhelming sadness. For I had baby sat and held this little child in my arms, looked in its joyous little eyes.

It was on a Tuesday morning that He told me. I knew that there was nothing that anyone could do, for the He had spoken.

It was a heavy weight to carry at thirteen years old. I just told my mother that I was sick. Didn't eat a thing for four days. I was in deep mourning. I don't have the words to describe it. I didn't pray for the Lord to spare her baby. He had spoken. I simply mourned.

I didn't leave my room untel early Saturday morning about 7 AM. When I heard a knock at the door. I knew who it was. I never forget the loud wail that came from my aunt as my father opened the door. For me I could finaly begin to end the grieving process.

Thanks for sharing.

Actually, I think these spiritual experiences are just as common or more than they ever were. It's a myth that people had divine experiences thousands of years ago but not today.

Most of us just don't beat others over the head with the miraculous. It often backfires.

I've seen and experienced a great deal that I only share when the time, person and place are right. Everybody has to have the right to live in their own bubble

peace
