When I was a early teen I was reading some Buddhist texts and prayed that a Bodhisattva would give me a realization.
Later that day I had a view about consciousness' being unspecific to particular beings. Long rambling "I realized" blah blah. I don't put a stamp of approval on every idea I have just because something miraculous happens.
I was in a strange state of mind afterwards and I saw what I think was a deva, a door unlocked and opened when I approached it and while thinking about the insufficient validity of labeling phenomenon this or that something I considered transformed to the thing I considered labeling it.
Now when I am learning more about the various Buddhist philosophies, I doubt the Madhyamaka view that says there are external (dependent) phenomenon. Because if there was one thing of that variety could not transform like that. Of course there's another possibility that I'm just not a valid cognizer. LOL
Things used to move around on their own a lot, sometimes appliances would turn on without being plugged in. But that has been happening much less over the years for a reason unknown to me.
Spirit stories are fun to talk about.
