So I was walking along Third Street in West LA on my way to lunch when I see this Indian bloke in a turban with a large number of coloured beads around his neck walking toward me. When he was about twenty feet away from me he started touching his finger to his 'third' eye and saying, "Blessings will come to you, blessings will come to you." He walked right up to me and grabbed my hand and touched my palm. "Three years of struggle you've had, but things are changing..." He then opened this little book he was holding that was filled with writings and pictures of various Hindu deities, and wrote on a piece of paper, which he then crumpled up and shoved in my palm. He asked me to pick a number and write it down and also to write something I was hoping for in my life. Anyway, the upshot was that the number and thing I wrote down were exactly the same things he had written on his paper?! He asked me for some money of course, I didn't have much, but I gave it to him and he blessed me anyway. He told me that I had been connected to two women, the first of whom was older and I severed that relationship, true. He also told me that if I gave him twenty bucks he would tell me the actual name of the woman I am with now, if I had had the money on me at the time I would have done it. I have a feeling he probably would have got it right.
The funny thing is, that is about the second or third time something like this has happened to me on the streets of LA. Once it was a guy who named my birth date and astrological sign and then proceeded to tell me some things about my life...who knows what it all means, but it gave me something to think about over lunch.
