The reporter did a nice article on us and onrepparttar Joseph Grant house.

Fast forward a year. We are asked back byrepparttar 122155 park rangers to do ghost tours for visitors. They planned to open uprepparttar 122156 house to after hours tours, something they have never done. As our group assembled again inrepparttar 122157 foyer of this wonderful house, againrepparttar 122158 feeling of excitement was inrepparttar 122159 air. The visitors with us that night could feel it too. Some ladies had their hair stroked while touring. Some visitors could see flashes of light in some rooms. As we stood inrepparttar 122160 foyer waiting forrepparttar 122161 visitors andrepparttar 122162 rangers to come downstairs, three of us heard what appeared to be furniture moving and crashing in a room to our left. Upon inspection, nothing was disturbed. It was at that point thatrepparttar 122163 historian stated that that happened once before up in “J.D.’s” bedroom following a séance they held there. He had failed to mention that. He also failed to mention thatrepparttar 122164 medium directingrepparttar 122165 séance tried to fling herself out ofrepparttar 122166 window.

We were very lucky this night. We captured some great EVP. We got possible orbs in some rooms. Butrepparttar 122167 most miraculous occurrence is that we believe we may have gotten pictures of two spirits. The Joseph D. Grant County Park was one ofrepparttar 122168 most unusual houses we have ever hadrepparttar 122169 pleasure to be in. We were pleasantly surprised to find that a house that is located out inrepparttar 122170 middle of nowhere and has never had problems reported before could be so haunted. Needless to say, we have changedrepparttar 122171 minds ofrepparttar 122172 park rangers andrepparttar 122173 visitors to this house as well.

This wasrepparttar exact quote that I had sent to my friend earlier that day! Out of allrepparttar 122154 quotes inrepparttar 122155 world, out of allrepparttar 122156 chapters I could have read up to, out of allrepparttar 122157 days in my life; this quote came up twice in one day! I knew there must be a reason for it happening so with some help from my friend I did a little research today onrepparttar 122158 Internet. This quote has been translated from Hebrew so I have now come to see that it has been interpreted in many different ways. This isrepparttar 122159 general meaning that I have come to think thatrepparttar 122160 words mean:

'If I am not for myself, who will be for me?' relates to self-esteem. It means that if you don't believe inrepparttar 122161 spiritual aspects of your Self and love yourself for your divine essence and not just your ego, then others will only see you as someone who hasn't truly formed an identity of your own. If you don't love and have faith in yourself, then others will naturally find it hard to love and have faith in you.

'And if I am only for myself, what am I?' To me this is about then spreading your love and faith to others around you. It is very important to do things that will make you feel better about your own self-esteem, but just doing things for yourself is selfish. The best way to become a strong and happy person is throughrepparttar 122162 service that we can do for others. We have to realize that others are just another form of ourselves,repparttar 122163 'I' that is intrinsic to all forms of life inrepparttar 122164 Universe (Great Spirit), and their well-being is just as important as our own.

The last line, 'And if not now, when?' refers to action. It's all good and well to have this knowledge, but it isrepparttar 122165 act of putting it into action that is of greatest importance. Now isrepparttar 122166 only time that is truly real. The past is gone and can never be lived again, whilerepparttar 122167 future has not appeared yet and for some of us (while in human form) it won't ever come. Any second could be our last, so now isrepparttar 122168 time to put our knowledge and beliefs into work by integrating them into our every movement.

I believe that these 'Universal connections' happen all around us everyday of our lives. We only have to focus our attention to see them; though sometimes they are so profound they will just jump right out and smack you inrepparttar 122169 face!
