The Legend of “Just Around the Bend in the ROAD”

As the legend goes,strange things may happen at the most unlikely times when you go just around the bend in the road. What are you doing right now, walking or riding in a vehicle? How fast are you going? WHERE are you going and WHY? What are you expecting?

OR, are you just not thinking about it? Just blindly going on down the road to the place where it goes around the bend?

That day was no different from most of the other days. I was going about my daily routines and didn’t think too much about what could happen to change my life. I was just going about life and living it as it happens! Had I only known what was about to happen!

I had written checks that morning to pay some of the bills and was on my way to the small neighborhood post office on the other side of town. There was not much traffic so I was not hurried or upset with heavy traffic. After going through town there is a mile or two of open fields of the annual crop of huge yellow headed sun flowers! Once a year the fields are a golden yellow sheet of pure delight! It always lifts my spirits when I see them!

Up ahead at the corner is a huge oak tree. The post office is about another mile after you turn left at the tree. As I got closer I could see somebody hitch-hiking standing under the tree limbs waving for me to “please stop”! Normally I’m afraid to pick up strangers so I wasn’t going to stop. But all of a sudden the car just started to go slower and slower and finally just stopped right by the young girl at the tree!

My mind was saying to me, “Richard, are you crazy? You know you don’t pick up strangers and give them a ride these days.!” Yeah, I hear you but the car just stopped. I didn’t!” The young girl looked harmless.

“Hello, my name is Alice. I’m on my way to the greeting party. It’s just around the corner. Can you give me a lift the rest of the way?” With that, she opened the door on the passenger side and got in and seat belted herself for the rest of the ride. Saying no at this point didn’t seem to be an option. “What kind of greeting party are you going to? I haven’t heard anything about a greeting party being planned.” ” Never mind she said, you’ll see.”

When we turned the corner I could see a large white tent down the hill with a lot of smaller tents surrounding it. There were no cars in sight. I could see a lot of people moving around the tents. How did these people get here? Drop right out of the sky? Alice must have read my mind because she said, “well yes, they kinda did just that!” and smiled. The car stopped on its on decision.” We’ll need to walk the rest of the way Richard, Alice said. As we got out of the car, I noticed that we had not opened the doors! I shouted, “What’s going on!?” by now it was noticeable that we weren’t communicating with our voices either! We were just reading each other’s minds! Who are those people down there? You’ll see, we’re almost there. Am I dead? No, you’re very much alive but much different! Alice smiled again.

As we got closer to the tents I realized there was a lot going on but I couldn’t see people. I saw shapeless collections of what looked like colored mists in the vague shape of people! There were a lot of greens and blues but very few purples. A few shapes of pink were mingling around, not really moving and yet they were! My mind was saying, “Richard surely you know what has happened by now.And I somehow replied, “I have died without warning or even a hint and my car just took over and brought me here and picked up a young girl along the way. Or is this just a really really bad dream?!”

All of a sudden right in front of my so-called face (no telling what I looked like now)! was a purple mist of somebody or something that said, Richard, we’ve all been waiting for you. So glad to see you looking so well!” I wanted to say, “so just how do I look so well? What color mist am I!” I realized I was being a little, well maybe a lot sassy! But give me some slack, I just died and turned into a colorful looking mist of some color. What do you expect?

The purple mist said, “You’ll adjust very soon. It takes a while for your vibration levels to adjust to this new place. To us you look just fine and well. We are so glad to see you.. We have a few special people that want to greet you first and then later I’ll come back and take you to the Healing Temple. After that you’ll be able to adjust to life UPHERE and will move on to visit your Cosmic Family. Most of them are here right now and the others are on their way. You are greatly loved by all and they can’t wait to welcome you home.”

Legends are born from stories that are passed down from generation to generation. You can’t expect them to be 100% true, but there is a lot of colored mist sometimes when you take that bend in the road. Be careful if your car slows down on its own!
