Calvin the Clairvoyant
Do you believe that there is life after death? Do believe in reincarnation?
I do, thanks to our nephew, Calvin the Clairvoyant. Let me explain...
My wife and I recently visited our nephew (the love of our life) and his parents (who we adore, too) and something crazy happened that left all of us in the car stunned.
First, it's important to note that Calvin doesn't have a huge vocabulary and is only beginning to put choppy sentences together.
So, we were on our way to the beach and driving past this expansive cemetery with rolling hills of green when Calvin says, "Mommy, what's that?"
"A cemetary," she says.
He pops a Cheerio in his mouth and says, "People come back."
We all looked at him and he was gazing at the headstones, still popping those little O's in his mouth like he'd just said he wanted his sippy cup.
What do you think? Do you think kids--the younger they are--are more in touch with the other side? And then once we get older, we become more skeptical and sanitized of other world possibilities?
While I'm on this subject and asking questions...Do you think the government outlawed psychedelic drugs like acid and shrooms because they take us to another level of consciousness, one the government doesn't want us to see? It's a theory my brother and I have...
