Where I stayed
There are single person ultra-lights that are, by definition, an airplane, but they barely get you up in the air. Bet you can all find someone in your life who fits this description. They're considered a human being, but barely for whatever reason.
Then there are the Anatovs and Super-sonic jets of this world. The ego bunch. The Anatov, a humungous heavy lift aircraft that just screams, "look at me, I’m huge", can carry anything, consumes huge amounts of fuel and crowds gather wherever it shows up. Then there’s the super sexy Super-sonic jets. Sleek, high profile, that people just drool after. Can think of a few movie stars in that category.
There are the “grunt” planes. They do their daily work ferrying people or cargo around the world. Then there are the highly specialized airplanes. They usually do one thing really well. They were designed specifically for that one purpose. Humans are the same.
And finally, we have the glider individuals. They need a helping hand getting through life. A lot of them are just clueless about life, something like the glider not knowing that it doesn’t have an engine and that at some point in time it’s going to need another tow to get back in the air. Other glider individuals just have someone caring for them their whole lives.
Airplanes and people, a good analogy. People have been around a lot longer than airplanes. DaVinci and others have had “thoughts” about flight for probably as long as humans have been around. But before mankind could actually design an airplane and get it up in the air science had to evolve. Newton and the laws of gravity. The development of strong and light materials. A propulsion system to get the right speed for lift. But once the time was right, all the pieces fell into place. There were naysayers who said it couldn’t be done. But some people believed that it was possible. After a lot of trial and errors, flight was achieved.
Life itself is the same.
Some people believe that our thoughts create our life. Yes, I am one of them. Some people believe that we attract into our lives all that happens. Yes, I am one of them. Some people believe that an all powerful being has created our life. Yes, I believe in that. Some people believe that it’s the natural evolution and expansion of the Universe that creates the world we live in. Yup, I believe in that too.
But I also believe that there are other “laws” out there which have been around since the dawn of time but that we haven’t been able to define yet. Gravity has always been there, but it took Newton to define it.
So how do you go about defining and proving laws that are more “spiritual” then “physical”? Drop an apple and you can calculate it’s speed of descent. Jump out of an airplane and we are all positive that you’ll plummet to the earth. We can also calculate when you’ll hit terminal velocity and how you can vary the rate of descent based on wind resistance. But you’ll still drop to the ground.
So how do you go about proving that “thoughts” create “life”? How do you go about confirming that “law of attraction” equals “eventual event”? How do you prove that “prayer” equals “God” answering? How do you prove that the evolution of the Universe is happening in a controlled manner using every single law that we are and are NOT aware of?
I’ve been on a Journey to prove that all this is so. I’ve crashed and burned a few times testing these theories. There have been a few setbacks, many setbacks. But I keep on moving forward. It’s like an exercise program. We can focus on our Abs, our core, cardio, upper body, lower body, complete body, plus include diet and life changes. Doing all this takes a lot of time out of our day. We workout for a long period seeing improvements and then there doesn’t seem to be any more. We plateau. At this point in time a lot of people get frustrated. They start working out a little less in one or more areas. Revert back to old eating habits, get less sleep then is required, etc, etc.
My “life” journey experiment has been the same. I’ve documented it all. I realize when I’ve plateaued, when I’ve become frustrated, and when I’ve jumped to a new level in understanding. It’s the two steps forward, one back, philosophy.
I’ve finally arrived at a new level of understanding and see what was missing at each step of the journey. Without the plateaus and frustrations my level of understanding would be lower. We all need to learn our lessons.
In prior periods I thought I had figured it all out. But I must have been missing pieces of the puzzle because I would reach another plateau and then frustration would set in. I’ve now arrived at a new level of understanding and life really is amazing. I’ve described but a few of the events that have happened that confirm that I’m onto something. Events, “coincidences”, luck, all happen to people on a daily basis. That’s not new. We see and hear about it all the time. You’ve probably all experienced it on a small scale. But I’m making it happen consistently.
To prove these theories, how many “coincidences” in a day have to happen before someone starts believing that there’s more to it then luck or “just a coincidence”? How many thoughts do I write down and then document that they occurred before it becomes proof of a law existing? How do you prove that you are attracting things into your life? At what point does an answered prayer equal proof when dozens of other prayers don’t seem like they’ve been answered? Because maybe they have, just not in the form that you expected.
Without making this into a 10 page chapter on my amazing life how do I go about proving that what I’ve written over the past 3 years contains the information required so that all people can arrive at the point I’m at? Yes, there will be a 10 page or 5 page or 2 hour movie of this life user’s manual available at some point in time. Am I worried about how to make people believe? No, because I’ve seen that everything falls into place when the time is right. The answer, the PROOF, will come. Just don’t ask me how or when.
My life is amazing. Yours should be too!
