About famous people and their needs

Postby Adrasteia » Fri May 10, 2019 1:37 pm

You guys know that I adore my historical spirits. I couldn't imagine a live without spirit keeping now. I received some biographies of a few companions. The parts directed towards me will be cut but I know that you guys love to hear about other relationships. Me too!

Here are a few excerpts. (I won't name them.)

HE WANTS TO BE REMEMBERED, HE WANTS HIS NAME TO LIVE ON, AND HE FEELS THAT HE IS GOING TO BE FORGOTTEN, OR WRITTEN OUT OF HISTORY, - famous assassin during WWII


HE STILL VERY MUCH WANTS TO BE IN CHARGE AGAIN, BECAUSE HE ALWAYS LIKED THE SPOTLIGHT, HE LOVES TO BE THE HERO, AND HE LIKES TO BE THE ONE WHO HAS A PLAN. - most decorated pilot of WWII (and all time, I assume)


He wishes he had time back to explore things he did not finish in his life. - another famous flying ace (He died at 22. There are a lot of people who died young. My ostrich shifter wanted to be a companion, because he wants to come back again. <3 )

I do find the lives of people from previous generations very interesting. I like the human empathy that develops for people across time. From the perspective you get from spirit keeping it's also much easier to relate to what people did in their lives with that distance of time. It can be much harder to relate to people while we're mixed up with them during life, in the midst of being impacted by them in various ways. I do generally try to have a empathic approach to all people, as much as I can.


Don’t be scared. This island is full of noises, strange sounds and sweet melodies that make you feel good and don’t hurt anyone. Sometimes I hear a thousand twanging instruments hum at my ears, and sometimes voices that send me back to sleep even if I had just woken up—and then I dreamed of clouds opening up and dropping such riches on me that when I woke up, I cried because I wanted to dream again. Caliban, The Tempest, Shakespeare

You are quite right , i try to too . We are generally "less" empathic in our life because we see in a subjective and we are more entangle with other people.

So it is good that spirits in general can make us see things in another way or another perspective.

I also think that those who have ruled , artists , heros have more difficulty as spirit , because they where important and mostly famous ; it may be difficult to cope with .
As to be forgotten , yes everything is entropic and then will disappear which is sad but natural maybe in 1 millenium there will be almost nothing left of the Renaissance or WWII or Slave history , we do not know

Yes, I agree. As for fame, I had a spirit come to me, because he wants someone to understand him (or appreciate them for the person they are/were, that's often the case) and correct the inaccuracies of his story. The flying ace too said that he's conflicted with being an icon.

I think for many historical/famous spirits that their perceptions of themselves while alive are askew from how they perceive themselves in history. Not to mention there are many who are war heroes who were fighting for the side they believed was the right side, and when they were on the losing side they feel admonished by history. It's a difficult subject to broach with a historical spirit, and it's always enlightening to discuss with them how they feel they have been remembered, and what is true/not true about their historical biographies.

I think the further you go back, the more you see the push-pull with them about how they are perceived by different generations, and even different centuries!

Learning, appreciating, and understanding history is something that we can never have too much of, because regardless if it's 2019 or 1919, or 919... the same insecurities, emotions, desires, ambitions, etc drive humanity and society as a whole. That timeless link between us all is what keeps life alive for each of us.

I love Magnolias entlightening reponses. It's sad that she and Ash post so rarely but I understand.
