Spiritual Men of Toronto

30 Oct

On my regular train trip to Toronto I either blog or read one of those FREE newspapers, which you can pick up at one of the boxes next to the train station. I could probably read a book written by some smart person and make myself even more educated that way but who needs that when you can find so many interesting things on those FREE (emphasis put on the word ‘free’ to explain myself for ‘reading’ it in the first place) newspapers.

Coming to the point or, to be more precise, to the topic of my post…The part which I enjoy the most on those FREE newspapers is the section called ‘classified’. There are two reasons for that: 1) it has rental ads (yes, I am still looking for a place to live in Toronto) 2) it has VERY interesting ads.

Speaking of interesting ads, there are a lot of SPIRITUAL men (and women maybe?) claiming to be able to sort all kind of problems you may have. They can help you with finding the right property, fixing your immigration problems (!), marriage problems/love, health, enemy problems, children problems, court/business problems and literally ALL kind of problems…They have very interesting names, and place of origin, too. Most popular names: Saba, Sheikh-Lamin, Shivananda Babaji, Kumar (experiencing with pronunciation of these names is not recommended or rather dangerous). Some of them claim to be from Amazonia, India, Africa; the ones who want to reach a more universal audience call themselves ‘International/World renowned’ spiritual men/astrologists.

Looking at those ads made me think. Can we actually give our problems away to some ‘Shamananah’ and expect him to solve it all for us? Is it actually possible that some spiritual man could bring your love back (that’s what they state) or get you a job? My personal answer is no, however seeing the amount of such ads placed in the newspaper made me realize that there must be someone (certainly more than one person) who does believe in all that kind of stuff, otherwise I don’t think those people would be able to pay for their ads, would they?

I wish life was that easy; you pay someone & all of your problems are gone! Just like that! Maybe it does work that way…? Any experiences? Stories? Anyone?

P.S. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, I blame it on my phone (certainly not my skills)!
