As part of our reading of the 7 Laws of the Mind, the Law of Forgiveness states:
To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.
After reading this I sat contemplating on this law and thought of how electricity works.
It is a common misconception that electricity takes the path of least resistance. Electricity in fact takes all paths that complete the circuit. The amount of current in each path is given by I=V/R. So the path of least resistance will have the most current flowing through it, but all paths do get some current depending on their resistance.
This really opened up my mind as to how the Universal Mind and the Law of Compensation works.
In Chapter 4 of Haanel’s Master Key System he says
21. The more we give the more we shall get; we must become a channel whereby the Universal can express activity. The Universal is constantly seeking to express itself, to be of service, and it seeks the channel whereby it can find the greatest activity, where it can do the most good, where it can be of greatest service of mankind.
Fortunately I have been blessed with an incredible family that instilled tremendous moral values in me. I have had such amazing role models growing up that a majority of my life the channel to the source has been clear, even when I knew nothing of it. It has always been in my nature to give and help people because of my upbringing and this week because of my channel being so clear and my heart being open to God I was fortunate to experience God express Himself in all of His infinite glory.
You see several weeks ago I put up a picture on my Snapchat story of an omelette my mom made me with a ketchup designed smiley face on it with a caption under it that read,
“Start your day off with a smile.”
Many of my friends saw it, but the only one that replied was one of my friends and former baseball teammate in college who I hadn’t talked to in months.
He’s currently going to school in Oklahoma and I’m living in Florida and immediately after he commented on my Snapchat story he brought up some things that were very similar to what I was reading in the Master Key. As soon as I hear him saying these kind of things I tell him, “I have to call you man” because there’s not many people I know that I can have these spiritual and philosophical conversations with.
So I call him up on October 26th and we talk for hours. This leads to frequent calls and texts every day proceeding that where we spend literally hours and hours sharing our perception of the world now and our every day encounter with the Universal.
Then on November 6th I get a text from him asking me
“What’s on the agenda?”
I answer saying “I’m packing for my flight tomorrow.”
He replied “I’m packing for Florida.”
My immediate reaction was like Elaine from Seinfeld when she says “Get out!”
He says “I promise. My brother is getting married in Key Largo and I’m leaving tomorrow.”
So I ask when and where he’s flying in. He tells me he’ll be flying in to Fort Lauderdale around 10:30am. I feel like Elaine again “Get out!”
I tell him that I’m flying out of Fort Lauderdale at 11:50am. I start getting all excited at the thought of seeing my friend. I keep thinking about it and tell him “I’m gonna see you tomorrow, I just know it. I can’t believe it!”
So tomorrow comes. All I know is he’s getting there around 10:30am and I’m going to see him. I get to the airport around 10am, check my bag in and play the waiting game.
Twenty minutes go by and it’s 10:30 now so I give him a call and it goes straight to voicemail. I send him a text, no response. I figure he’s still in the plane. It’s 11am now and still not a word from him. I’m starting to cut it close for my flight. I decide to ask the people at Southwest if they could tell me if a plane from Oklahoma has landed in Fort Lauderdale. They do their best to help me, but to no avail. I go back to my seat and it’s close to 11am now. My brother is there with me and starts to get nervous for me saying you’re going to miss your flight. I’m still relatively calm, but some nervousness begins to settle in.
Finally around 10:50am I get a text “Just landed.” I get all excited! I call him up, he answers and says he’s leaving the plane. I ask him what gate are you coming out of and he tells me Gate B6.
I lose it! I’m in utter disbelief! Why you may ask? Of all the different airlines and gates in the airport I have to go through Gate B6! Are you kidding me!?!?!
I tell him to hurry his ass over to baggage claim. He then had the nerve to tell me that he had to go to the bathroom first. I’m like “hold it man! I have to go or I’ll miss my flight. He says sorry and goes to the bathroom while I wait anxiously at the bottom of the stairs at baggage claim. I call him back, it’s around 11:10am (my flight leaves at 11;50am and I still haven’t gone through security) and I tell him to come to baggage claim at B6 and you’ll see me at the bottom of the stairs. About a minute goes by, but it feels like eternity.
I keep my eyes fixed at the top of the stairs and out of the corner of my right eye appears my friend Wade
I can’t contain myself! I’m smiling from ear to ear as I wait for him to make it down the stairs and give him the biggest hug!
We talk more than we should. I tell him I have to go. We say our goodbyes and before we go we take a picture together.
I rush my way to and through security, speedwalk to the terminal, make the flight and spend the rest of the day astounded at how everything lined up so perfectly.
Trying to make sense of it all I thought of Tim Tebow when he helped the Broncos beat the Steelers in overtime in what is known as “The 3:16 Game”
At the post game press conference the reporter says
‘Timmy, did you realize what happened?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, we just beat the Steelers. We’re going to play the Patriots.’ And he was like, ‘No, do you realize what happened?’ I was like, ‘Alright, Patrick, what’s up?’” Tebow shared.
“He said, ‘It’s exactly three years later from the day that you wore John 3:16 under your eyes,’” Tebow continued. “I was like, ‘Oh, that’s really cool.’”
“He said, ‘No, I don’t think you realize what happened. During the game, you threw for 316 yards; your yards per rush were 3.16; your yards per completion were 31.6; the ratings for the game were 31.6, and the time of possession was 31.6,’” Tebow shared.
“And during the game, 90 million people had already Googled John 3:16, and it was the number one trending thing on Facebook and Twitter,” Tebow continued. “And a lot of people will say, ‘It’s coincidence.’ I say, ‘big God.’”
…and it all began by simply starting the day off with a smile
