Invasive is a very interesting term, but I doubt that you mean it in a necessarily coercive sense...?
You’re correct. Even though invasive was the most accurate descriptive I could think of, I’m conscious that it has the potential to conjure up discomforting feelings. I think it’s relevant to say that I was seemingly led, by degrees, into this aspect of the experience, and I don’t doubt for one minute that those powerful non-physical entities would vacate in an instant at the slightest whiff of panic from me. Indeed, I’ve had a couple of challenging experiences that I’ve called a halt to, and the entity has immediately ceased its interaction with me and vacated in a manner that has ultimately proved very rewarding to my investigative inquiries.
...what portends is an increasing awareness that our thoughts are much less private than we ordinarily think, and more consequential? How does that sound?
That sounds absolutely perfect! The inner life that we assume is completely private (our thoughts and our feelings) is not so private as we assume it to be. Interactions with strangers and those we already know is more meaningful than we suppose. From an esoteric viewpoint, of course.
All good wishes
