What’s the point? The End Game? Why do we do what we do in search of truth and what is truly paranormal? How does one go from truth seeker to celebrity or making a living of this hobby of ours? For that matter why does it matter??
Sure the band wagon gets too full and some fall off – which starts the backlash…. Sometimes its warranted others, well… not so much. So I guess i’m asking myself is it worth it all? By it I mean the search for what’s out there. For me I haven’t crossed that celebrity bridge, I may never have to – hell it prolly wasn’t on most of the minds of these paranormal “big wigs” we know and “love” now.
I know for me it feels like i’m the only cab on the road. We as paranormal teams and people aren’t really social beings at times – just pack animals (our teams) and fight for our “spot” in the pecking order. I see it happen over and over, most of the time I honestly see people do it on instinct. That fight that drives them takes them too far… And by no means am I saying i’m perfect – i’m far from that.
I just think that we all need to re-evaluate how we go about our interactions with other groups and people, whether its about evidence, techniques, beliefs, or just general. We ALL have something to add to the para community – failures, success, knowledge, all have their place.
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
