Thank you. I really appreciate it, to be honest. And I've pretty much cut all ties to new age stuff minus on and off contact with a few friends that are still involved in it, but I have a feeling that'll fizzle out over time because we have very, very different views and really our shared beliefs in new age things was our only common interest. I've been contemplating making some sort of testamonial video for youtube just to warn others because i see a lot of young girls (12-15 or so) on social media who claim to be dead royalty or celebrities and they end up really damaging themselves and most don't get out of it, and it hurts me to see because i was in that boat one time and I know how lonely and miserable it can get when you're so obsessed with a life that isn't yours.Laurel, you are not a "loon." Rather, you are on a spiritual journey. Glad to hear you are easing away from New Age stuff and looking for answers elsewhere. The dark side is real, and you want the light.
Commercial is over (I pastor a very small church in NW Wyoming; very non-traditional). Now, back to the topic.
John Harper was a widower, traveling on Titanic with his very young daughter. His wife's teenaged cousin (I think) was along to help with the daughter. He made certain both girls were on a lifeboat, then he stayed behind.
It's really refreshing to get to tell my story to someone whose gut reaction isn't "oh wow you're insane" or "oh no you can't leave this belief! It's true!!!"
And back to the Titanic, I think it would be really interesting if somehow they made an accurate movie about the ship and somehow incorporated all of these little remembrances of the victims and survivors, to make some kind of living memorial to them in a way
