Is It Real?

Here is a deep question for all you thinkers out there.

If something exists in your mind does that make it real?

For example, I know logically that there is no one hiding behind every door in my house.  I haven't seen anyone standing there either.  However, in my mind I can "see" them or feel them there so is it real?

The night before my dad was to be buried, he stood at the foot of my bed all night long.  Now, I never heard anything or saw anything but in my mind he was there.  So,  is it real?

On an episode of the Golden Girls they were robbed while out of the house.  It was really hard on the character Rose.  She couldn't get over it.  She said that she knew they were gone but in her mind they were still there.  So, are they there if they exist in her mind?

These are just some interesting thoughts I have had lately.  (hope we can still be friends. LOL)  And no I am not off my medication. LOL

Well - what can I say?? Anything is possible. If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is there to hear it, does that mean it didn't make a sound?

This is all about faith. I think the spiritual world is all around us all the time, and we can't see it. That doesn't mean we can't sense it. In moments like those, I just pray and ask for God's guidance and protection.

I do believe the night you felt your dads presence was definitely real.

The veil is thin on many occasions I think. And some people might be more sensitive to those on the other side. I'd consider it a great gift that you've been given. Mimi

I tried to comment yesterday but it wouldn't go through. I just wanted to say that I wish you would tell us more about your Dad standing at the foot of your bed.

yes, I think it's real, a whole other world we only touch briefly, and it leaves us wondering. My daughter's psychiatrist told her that her hallucinations are like none he's heard of in 40 years of practice, that they are spiritual in nature, and he believes are something she's in touch with, not the hallucinations of a psychotic break.

Interesting questions.
And I agree with Jill.
