if you are easily upset you may not want to ready this thread...
i'm not even sure what kind of title or subject heading to give this thread.... i suppose a 'warning' was appropriate so i decided to put that as the title.
i started crying when i heard about this extremely disturbing incident news that took place less then 24 hours ago about 60 miles away from the city in which i live.
i'm in canada, btw.
there was a bus heading from edmonton to winnipeg.
for no apparent reason and without provocation, one of the passengers out of the blue viciously stabbed another passenger - they were apparently sitting by each other, and the victim was reportedly sleeping at the time. not only did he stab the victim, but repeatedly, and then continued to... decapitate him. All while on a bus, at night, traveling through the prairies; a bus full of people that had to witness this horrific act.
when i heard about this, prior to reading the news article itself, i started crying. for quite a while. i simply cannot imagine what could posses a human to act like that towards another, especially without any apparent provocation. i can't help but think what was going though the minds of the perpetrator, the victim, and all the witnesses. how utterly horrible.
and when i come to think of it, around the approximate time this incident took place, i recall having unsettling thoughts enter my head, completely out of the blue, that involved stabbing and murder, etc. this happens on rare occasion, and i wonder if i am weird or if everyone experiences such random or morbid thoughts once in a while. of course i would never in a million lifetimes dream of acting on such bizarre thoughts. the thoughts freak me out and i try to change my thoughts to something else or on raising my vibration, thoughts of kindness and oneness, etc.
this makes me wonder so many things... that it's hard to even know where to begin articulating my thoughts.
and having read erin's recent blog that mentioned 'keith' giving nudges and such to help her out (but not being a guide per se)... does that mean that there might be negative spirit entities out there whose 'mission' is to nudge people into committing horrific acts?
i'm sure i have more questions but i can't think of how to word any of them right now. but i'd love some thoughts on all this stuff...
it's also weird because i was planning on booking a bus trip from winnipeg to edmonton and sometimes i get weird thoughts wondering if i shouldn't take a certain trip. one time a couple years ago i could have been on a bus that rolled over, where people were killed, had i not decided to take another bus. and both buses left the depot at pretty much the same time, too. and i recall this strange feeling when leaving the bus depot looking over in panic at the other bus, but not understanding the nature of my panic. at first i wondered "am I on the right bus? this is the bus i'm supposed to be on, right? not *that* bus? am i going to be in an accident" only to later learn that the bus i had these feelings about went on its way to be in an accident.
phew. i don't know. hearing other people's thoughts on strange occurrences like this might help ease my mind a little...

Well, I think that event is horrible, but me personally, I can imagine something like that taking place, some people are just that cruel. People lash out for various reasons at innocent people, although, witnessing an act such as that is very much horrible. As for the guide, I do think (although I never personally experienced this but it is from what I heard from spiritualist authors) that there are such entities out there (such as people reporting that they are "not themselves" when they committed the acts) but I think it is really difficult for them to cause this kind of act to happen (from people's natural aversion to killing first off), so not much to worry from that.
Everyone gets that kind of feeling from time to time (some people more than others), I would listen to those feelings but not if it is causing you undue stress though. I would try not to dwell too much on this kind of stuff, try to see what good is in the world instead of what wickedness man is capable of.

Thanks for the reply, Mew.
You are right; I find comfort thinking and knowing of all the good that is out there.
It actually strengthens my resolve to do what I can to change the world for the better and somehow make an impact.
