Well, I've always considered Buddhist monks as spiritual beings.

I have a history of seeing spirits often. I just moved into our newly bought house and I've seen many walking through. But I don't feel they're negative spirits. I don't feel bothered by them. The house my family rented a few years ago had a very troubled, negative spirit that haunted the house. Way different feeling than those here now.

Yep me too.

But that's because my drinks cabinet is very near my computer desk.

Aside from the spirits that are in my drinks cabinet I do not believe in any other kind of spirit or 'ghost'. (Though I did enjoy the movie)

That's funny, but I'm being serious. I didn't believe it myself for a while, until I started telling people about the messages I'd get from them, which were true 99% of the time and shocked the people I told.

So tell us. What did they look like... how did they communicate... were they male or female.... were they transparent or solid.. were the 'messages' of great importance?

So many questions.

But hopefully you'll put some meat on the skeleton.... so to speak.

Well, I can see that you dont like to be out of control of situations. It is generally fear of being out of control that makes people deny things which they find uncomfortable.

Before you tell people that these things are not true, how about explaining how there are thousands apon thousands of people who have experienced ghosts and paranormal phenomena. Once you can explain that satisfactorily, then you may have some basis for saying that these things are unreal to the people who have experienced them.

And... while you are at it, try explaining what 'real' is anyway.
