In a thread I started called a concept of time I mentioned a phenomenon which I termed the greylight. Basically this was a recognition the force/powers/god fills in the gaps in the past to make the present slightly different. The times I think I noticed this had happened were small, innocuous events.
Just now I was thinking over this and realised I had missed what is a crucial part of this process.
As I said in the earlier thread I have only noticed it about three times. What I forgot to mention was that in each of those situations I felt like I had been used, not by the person who benefited (though everyone seemed to in any case), but by some force that seemed to have taken me over, making me do things, making me reach decisions against what I wanted (though I knew I always had a choice). And it was always at the end of the help I had given (reluctantly) that these subtle greylight changes took place, and I was the only one who could see it.
It is interesting to note that in every situation, after the positive result, and what seemed to be beyond my control, I never saw these folk again. To them, if they thought about it at all, I could have been an angel.
