I met a bee. Once I drew a flying bee with his tail and moving wings. I loved this picture so I scanned it into my computer and added some colors. It was fifteen years ago when I first drew it.
Then I made a tattoo with him on my skin. I had a friend who was amateur tattoo artist. He made me this tattoo with the drawing that I showed him. Now I have this bee on my skin.
And then I met him in real life.
It happened in a hotel where I lived on Koh Phangan island. I had a house with a balcony facing the sea. This was my place where I wrote my book. One day a bee appeared in a flower bush next to my balcony. It wasn’t an ordinary bee. His body was shiny like made of gold. It was a funny fellow, he always came to the same place and staid there for hours. He loved to chase butterflies who were passing by the balcony. I used to film him and made many pictures of my new neighbor. Until one day I made this picture!
When I looked at it I was shocked. It was exactly the same bee as I drew it fifteen years ago. The picture I made on a piece of paper, then on my computer and even on my skin – it became true in my reality. I met my own creation.
Now a question to you my dear reader. According to your belief system, was it:
- A – Total coincidence
- B – I somehow new this is going to happen
- C – I created it
- D – something else
You can answer to that question in comments below. I would love to see your perception of reality. My personal answer is 100% C. Because I was sure that this guy on a photograph was the materialization of my thoughts throughout my life. Every day I was watching that bee on my skin, he was always with me, until finally I had a chance to see him in real life. And this wasn’t an accident that he appeared next to me, he lived there with me for weeks. It took me time to realize it’s him though.
This is the living proof for me that I’m creating my own reality. It doesn’t happen so quickly – it took me 15 years from a picture to real life experience. But it does happen. So I worn everyone who is picking another picture for tattoo. I feel petty for those guys and girls who draw a scull on their skin. Be aware that you are going to meet this sooner or later in real life.
