Mayan… Hopi… Zeta…
Even our own Thom Acee ate a fistful of magic mushrooms in order to go on a “Spirit Walk” last year to see what the “Other Side” had to say about 2011 (to this day he stumbles around our home offices crowing about being at a better than fifty percent accuracy rate even with the blown Oscar predictions).
But none of these could have prepared me for when I came across the third eye visions of one Mr. Mitar Tarabich…
According to the legend, Mitar Tarabich (1829-1899) was an illiterate Serbian farmer who lived in a rural part of Serbia when he started having these strange visions of the future. Being a simple man of tremendous faith in the Christian god, he told his godfather, a Serbian Orthodox priest named Zaharije Zaharich (1836–1918), of his “visions of the future”. Thankfully for us, instead of burning the poor man to the stake for devil worship (as such a claim would have warranted in that part of the world to this day let alone a hundred plus years ago), Zaharich wrote down all of Tarabich’s “visions” in a small notebook, which was damaged by fire in 1943 when his family home was destroyed by the occupying Bulgarian Army (The notebook is said to still be in the possession of the family of Zaharich’s great-grandson, Mr. Dejan Malenkovich).
The predictions within the notebook were said by many to be more accurate (at least way more straight forward) than the ether drenches warblings of Nostradamus… so much so that –still according to the legend (as I couldn’t find anything beyond anecdotal claims to the fact) - the Serbian government was said to have kept the prophecies of Tarabich hidden from the public for quite some time.
[Maybe this is why the public was not to be told about the visions of Tarabich… Tarabich’s best-known prophecy has to do with a series of political events in 19thcentury Serbia. He predicted a sequence of events, spanning a course of decades, which eventually led to the removal of the ruling Obrenovich family from the Serbian royal throne. This prophecy came to be known in the Balkan region as "the Black Prophecy", and it played out as predicted.]
