2003 - What are they trying to tell us?
and Edith are life-long Mirror readers, now in their mid- 70s,
living in Doncaster. On two occasions they have seen a UFO. One
was in the winter of 1984. They were walking with six others to
a friend's engagement party just outside the town, and they all
saw it - "a huge, steel-grey saucer shape with lights around the
edge ? very silent, graceful, just above the rooftops." Ken and
Edith were made happy by the experience. It showed them that,
"we are certainly not alone in this universe".
||Since I began this
series about UFOs I have been overwhelmed with reader’s letters.
Most say the same thing. There is something hypnotic about a UFO
sighting. Nothing is said, no message is spelt out, but minds
and lives are changed by the mysterious contact. The message that
gets through, unspoken, is ‘You Are Not Alone’.
|You can tell the meaning
of anything by what it does. By that token, the meaning behind
UFOs is to open our eyes to the truth of things, that we are not
the only conscious beings in the universe. But who is this message
from? It cannot be an evil source. There are no reliable stories
of people being harmed by UFO contacts. On the contrary, lives
are enriched and minds comforted by this wonderful phenomenon.
||Some people believe
benevolent extra-terrestrials are preparing us for contact. Others
think UFOs are manifestations from the spirit world. Perhaps they
are both the same thing. Ancient records tell of 'gods' who, from
time to time, come to earth and put our affairs in order. If that
is what they are doing now, good luck to them.
