I am positioning this entry right at the top so we can open a dialoge of commentary regarding psychic experiences. I do believe that ultimatley, that is what Bill Compton and the entire KCAC/KCKB experience was really all about.
We all have psychic experiences in our own ways. Some of us have lucid dreaming experiences, some have real-time real-life encounters such as Mariah did at the passing of Bill. You can read about it in the archives of the blog, if you wish. In my case with the passing of Bill, it was an automatic writing experience.
I am not telling ghost stories, here. Christ in his teachings, seemed to be PREPARING us for the next stage of our personal development and growth as we (re)unite with our own Godhead and the awakening of our psychic perceptions and telepathic abilities. We are like chicks emerging from our eggs at the point of "death" as it were, as we unite with and become an integral part of The Flock within The Godhead. Bill's sign-off mantra "Thou Art God" while borrowed directly from "StrangerIn A Strange Land", was a straightforward statement of fact. Without touting it and perhaps without realizing it, Bill was probably one of the most advanced and influential "preachers" The Valley had seen in a long time. Sorry churches, but I don't see a lot of difference between you and Wal-Mart.
More often than not, I have psychc experiences that are based entirely on FEELINGS like a blind man in an elevator, groping his way through time and space. I feel the person rather than talk to them or experience communication in other ways.
The experience I had this morning was like that. There I was in my cocoon, stumbling around to the bathroom and back. The time was 5:06 AM CST and I was ready to drift off again when suddenly I felt an overwhelming presence close gently around me. It was Dwight. No question. The straightforwardness, the blunt honesty of his personality and the unquestionable acceptance of what is were all there. Am I describing him correctly?
I haven't had an experience like it since my daughter Summer Rose died a few months after the 1996 KCAC/KDKB reunion.
It's nice to know that Dwight's soul and spirit are free and like any other surprise experience, it kinda scared me at first.
Surprise, Ron - you just got hugged.
