Ghosts are real. They remindness us of our stuckness. They are memories replaying in our mind . The memories replay because of unresolved issues we have. Some of us can see them
They form from guilt and shame . They manifest out of the corner of our eye , causing us to turn our head, take a second glance at the space we casually fleet over.
Sometime the Ghosts are big, over-whelming. They are part of a more obvious collective memory, to do with our race, nation , color, belief systems. the sins of our fathers Something reminds us that all is not at ease, but what is the purpose of the ghost ? Why does he show up ? Is he here to cause harm?
I don’t believe so. I think he shows up to give us the opportunity to help him let go of what binds him . What binds him binds us all. He may not be aware of it , but his obsessive lingering presence challenges us , we who are conscious.
Ghosts are good because they remind us of something powerful . We have conscious minds despite our flaws and we can do something about it.
We have the power to forgive and ask for forgiveness.
A difficult task and necessary and continuous task, if the ghosts are to find their way home
