Dispatch from Life in the Material World Gazette!
Sunday night – Driving home from Joshua Tree I was chased and harassed by another car for over 20 miles. Originating from a gas station in Pomona, he followed me and chased me on the freeway, he even slammed on his breaks at 80 mph and tried to run me off the road. I called 911 and made a highway 10 exit that got me out of harms way.
Monday night – upon returning from kirtan at BYS I parked my car on my street in SM, got out of my car and was nearly attacked by an unstable homeless man dressed in drag (yes really). He was a pretty big guy and got about 1 inch from my face screaming and yelling that he was going to kill me. Turns out he’s the son of a neighbor on my street and they have been worried about him for 20 years. Again, I called 911 and ended up ok.
I’ve called 911 maybe maybe 3 times (?) in my life prior to this. So this happens twice in two days immediately following 4 days of good association with fellow travelers on the spiritual plane…hmm, what to do? If that isn’t the juxtaposition of love, acceptance, destruction and maya I don’t know what is.
