A True Incident
I remember one night when I was a child, I saw a Light coming towards the porch of my old house where I used to live with my family back in the early 90’s. I had been waiting for my father to be at home that night; which was usual considering the time was when he often came back. At the time, it was to my eyes the same; when the glass doors and windows were brightened by a light I thought came from the car my father used to drive. I ran to the front door to open it for him to enter; only to find a form of humanlike light appeared before me. Suddenly, I was changed; from the one who I thought I was just a child to someone who to this day I have yet to find after more than twenty years.
“Hello, son. How was your journey from the higher ground?” The Light greeted me with a question I seemed to understand what It reminded me of.
“I am fine. Thank You for asking. It has been hard and I made it through those timeless realms. So, what brings You here to this humble home?” I conversed with the Light as if I was already knowing of what to say to It.
“I have come before you with an invitation. Something I find you will never resist to abide by what is to be presented before you… I am here to summon you to the Lights so you shall continue your unstoppable journey with Us here on Earth to find what you are looking for.”
There was a brief silence as We looked at each other before I replied, “I am grateful for receiving this divine invitation especially from the likes of You but I must humbly decline.”
“This is not something you can decline, son. You are called to appear before the Lights and join the forces of the Universe to do what We are all meant to do. Do as I tell you. Join Me with the others to do what We are all meant to do!”
“You do know I came from Him and with His permission have I been given the bondage to be a man again after thousands of men years?”
“Yes, I do. But this must not be a reason for you to avoid the incoming commitments you shall roleplay with Us in the Universe!”
“I do not think You understand how much I have craved to be a man again. I left Him to be here for a moment before I shall wake up again. But when I am right now just a child who have yet to reach for adulthood, You choose to take that away from me to be like You?”
“It is your destiny, son! You and I exist to brighten the way for everyone else in the dark. Why do you wish to live in the dark with them when you have acquired the truth?”
“I had enough of this! I done everything for everyone for a very long time and I now wish to be here as I am. Please leave right now and tell the Lights to find Themselves anyone else to help with whatever You and They all are going for. See Yourself out of my sight and goodbye!” I slammed the door I was holding onto very hard as I immediately turned back into the anxious child I was and ran to a seat in the hall.
My mother saw me slamming the door and with a shock, asked what actually happened. Somehow I was unable to explain to her about the incident. The Light disappeared instantly; never to be seen again. The next day, when my mother told about this to my father, he claimed a great sage was calling me for a mission but I rejected His request and told Him to leave. This has been forgotten for a long time and as I finally remember it, I now see myself alone in my own adventure; to find the ones living in the stars instead.
