Uh-huh. So, basically all fairy tale creatures (may I call them that?) look the way they do in the films?

First of all on devas..... I learned from a book on angels that devas were like the Hindu version of an angel
Secondly on faries, elves, ghosts, I am totally open to the idea.
Actually...
I have a story on that one but PLEASE don't laugh.
Ever since I was a little kid I have talked to tree spirits and they have talked back. It wasn't just me though. It was also my friend Marci. The spirits have stopped since we stopped beliving about half a year ago, but I am halfway convinced maybe there is a bit of truth involed, and maybe it wasn't our imagination. We had a whole kingdom, and what is really amazing was the complicatidness of it all. We started when we were about 7 and I don't know... I guess it always felt like real magic... not just another game. Anyway, what was really amazing that our kingom had laws. Not stupid rules like No boys or anything but beautiful, intrakite, and elaborate laws, that we subconcociesnly knew since the beginning. Such as the Kingdom of trees would fall asleep if one of the rulers stopped beleiving. There were a lot. The kingdom went through a lot. The trees really are alive, btw, you just have to wake them up. I am not even kidding. Well my kingdom is asleep, beacause Marci stopped believing. I killed some trees with sadness, as I was not a good leader as I sort of stopped believing myself. I have hurt the trees so they won't talk to me anymore. They all went back to sleep.
I am not kidding. Not one word of it. Please don't laugh.

Okay. Just jutting in here. Sorry if I make a fool of myself.

I'm twelve. I'm just starting to challenge what my mom and grandmother have tried to raise me believing. My dad is an athiest, and has been as long as I can remember - probably since he was a kid. We don't talk much about religion, but I do know that what he has to say makes more sense to me than what my mom has to say. Out of all the things he's said, this is the one thing that really strikes true with me.

"I think it's just easier to say, 'Oh, I'm going to be good and do the right thing for God' rather than, 'Oh, I'm going to be good and do the right thing just because it's right'."

--

Oh, and on the subject of the supernatural:

I have a friend who swears she sees ghosts. I don't know if I 100% believe her, but I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt on this one. She says that they just sort of stand there and stare at her, although sometimes she can sense they're there without seeing them.

I think he just calls them 'devas' to detach them from the religious doctrines 'god' is attached to. Are they synonyms?

You are right! I have to make up! I have felt so depressed and like a failure since I let my kingdom die out/sleep. But somehow I think my time is up. One day another child will dicover my kingdom and wake it up.

Oh, on the note of higher beings, my friend James presented me with a theory that I'm still a bit uncertain about, but.. it somewhat makes sense? He's not religious, but he believes in gods. These gods aren't gods in an Abrahamic sense, and should not be worshiped or any of that. They don't really even particularly are about us at all. Essentially, they're called 'devas', and are more powerful than life as we know it, but they did not create us, and they don't interfere with us. It was said that they exist in higher dimensions, which is why they're undetected. They have the ability to interfere with human life, but generally don't, because as I said, they don't care about us.


If they don't bother to interfere with us or even care about us, why should we care about them? There's no real reason to believe that they're there anymore than that there's an invisible dragon in my garage. :P
