I have gone over the Type TWO personality trait. The one that can be mistaken for the "mammy". More about that can be found here and here. But this weekend, I met a seriously developed Type FOUR personality type. That's always an experience for me!
From sundown Friday til sundown Saturday, its the holy Sabbath (which is probably why my blog is at a standstill then) and we do no work. We relax with friends and family and have huge meals, lol. Its alot funner to have guest, so we invited a guy.
This guy had been involved in alot of meditation and alot of the Eastern religion. Type FOURS tend to usually have a mystical side to them. They are higly spiritual and very creative artists. On a down day, they can be morbidly pessimistic. They tend to can't stand the cruelty of the world -it effects them so much more than it does other people. You can read more about that from the Enneagram.
Anyway, this guy was a type FOUR who had purposefully developed his spiritual abilities through deep meditations and other things from the Eastern religions. It was such an experience to meet him! But he scared me.
It was exciting to meet him because I felt he validated alot of strange experiences that I've felt, but kept quiet about lest folks think I'm crazy. It was also great to meet him because he was so relaxed and at ease. But he scared me because, through him, I felt that there was a depth in me that I simply was too afraid to face and rather live life "on the surface."
Are people out there also afraid, as I am, of going 'too far' spiritually?
