Forty years ago I experienced something no one could explain. When I was thirteen, I severed an artery in my upper right arm. Blood was squirting everywhere. I was about a city block away from home so I started walking, but with every step, I felt myself getting weaker and weaker. By the time I got home, I was drained. When I sat on the stoop of our front porch, I wasn't sitting anymore. I was standing, watching myself. I saw my mother and my sisters are running out of the house screaming and gathering all around me. I saw this car pull up and then them picking me up and carrying me to the car. All the while this woman's voice behind me was saying, 'it's going to be alright.' I found myself being whizzed away and I was standing at the hospital. I saw them rolling a wheelchair out from the hospital and putting me in it. Rolling me inside and putting me on a table then cutting my clothes off me. The last thing I remember is her voice saying it's going to be alright. Then I woke up. Everybody was standing around me at the hospital like it was a dream. I have never forgotten the voice.Ever since I came into possession of a particular cane, I've been having some pretty wild dreams. I found myself dreaming I was reliving events in time and one night I found myself in outer space looking down at the Earth. When I looked around, I saw the twelve constellations being drawn right in front of me starting with the water bearer. When it came around to the constellation Capricorn there was a Big Eye staring at me. I couldn't look away, I was drawn into it. And in a flash of Light I was looking down at our Galaxy with twelve suns. Another star was circling those twelve Suns. I couldn't take my eyes off the Light in the center and in a flash I was looking down at twelve Galaxies. Then another flash and I was looking at twelve Universes and then twelve Mega verses. It kept flashing until my mind couldn't take anymore and I found myself surrounded by nothing but Pure Light. Then puff, I found myself falling back to Earth with that same woman's voice telling me a story something like this:Who 'I am'The Eye of Seal the First Seven Days of Time.I created the Sun and I named the first day 'Sunday.'I created the Moon and I named the second day 'Monday.'I created the Two (He and She) from the dust of this Earth, and I named the third day 'Tuesday.'I created the Four Winds and I named the fourth day 'Wednesday.'I created Water and I named the fifth day 'Thursday.'I created Fire and I named the sixth day 'Friday.'And I created 'Saturday' as the seventh day, for you to sat, rest, and prepare.The Archer the Covenant made with Man.I gave Itim (Adam) a piece of the Tree as the Covenant I made with Man, using it to bring peace to a wild and savage land.The Scorpion the Death of ManI sent the scorpion on the seventh day to give him rest,For six thousand years he did his best.The Scales the Judgment of ManI weighed his heart against a feather,It floated in the air like a bird in good weather.The Virgin the Resurrection and Conception of ManI sent the Virgin Lily to wake him from his dead-like sleep,To give her a child, a soul to keep.The Lion A New King Rebirth of ManI gave you Kings to rule this landBut you treated your brother like less than a man.The Crab the Great FloodI sent the Waters so that you may start againWith Peace and Love as a new best friend.The Twins the Covenant Broken by ManI gave you Gen and Isis in the night skyBut you started killing each other, do you know why?The Bull the Slaves in EgyptI gave you all of Africa for you to be freeBut you turned your children into slaves and forgot about the TreeThe Ram Freed by MosesI sent Moses to get the Tree and set things rightWho freed the children in the middle of the nightThe Two-Fish Redeemed by JesusI sent you Jesus who also carried the same TreeBut you changed his story now he is meThe Water Bearer Enlightened by the StarsI told Itim (Adam) to write this story in the night skySo that it would stay there as the Centuries go by
