It’s funny sometimes how one thought triggers another, isn’t it?
On a recent plane flight, I saw a replay of a scene from Back to the Future where the DeLorean time machine flashed out of one timeline and flashed into another. That got me thinking about time travel.
Could I really travel back in time, tell myself to buy Microsoft (MSFT) in 1984 and travel back to the present and reap the harvest? I don’t know, but I doubt it, even if our understanding of temporal science advanced significantly.
Here’s my reasoning: every person and every point on the timeline is connected, one to the other. Ergo, if I change one thing for one person, everything changes for every person in response.
Now, you may not believe we’re all connected. Fair enough. Try this. Think of a person with whom you’d like to speak. DO NOT reach out to that person directly, either in-person or electronically.
Find a picture of that person, and every day, at least 3 times a day, look at the picture and imagine, with pleasant feelings, that person reaching out to you by whatever method you choose.
DO NOT tell anyone else of your desire. Then, presuming the person is still living, observe how long it takes for him or her to reach you. My guess is it won’t take longer than a week. A day or two is typical.
How cool is that? We are all connected. And connectedness goes much deeper than that.
I’m not going to quibble with you about religion or philosophy; you’re free to believe as you like. I profess a belief and faith in God, and in His Son, Jesus Christ. My beliefs, however, are immaterial to the point I will soon make.
While I believed in Christ, I must confess to not believing Christ, at least not all the time and not in all things. That isn’t a sign of rebellion; it just reflects my humanity and my need to learn line upon line, precept on precept, here a little and there a little.
Once I understood that we’re all connected, I asked myself, “How?” The answer soon came: energetically, for lack of a better way to express the thought. Every living thing (including some things ordinarily considered inanimate) is connected by some form of energy.
This is of present moment to me because of the issue of manifestation. The basic idea is you intend a thing or state of being, and, if your intention is clear, it manifests. I intend several things, and, like most folks, I want them to manifest.
Here’s where connection becomes important. I can only attract what I claim. And I can only claim what I own. I think I read something about this: “… who shall give you that which is your own?” (Luke 16:12) That’s a fragment from a parable about an unjust steward. The Lord’s summary of the parable includes the quoted question.
I used to think that meant that if I was a good steward, the Lord would give me stuff. That seems now to be a mistake. Because if I own or claim something, then it is mine by right if I’ve given fair value, and no one can “give” it to me because it will flow to me without compulsion of any sort.
I can see now, too, that the things I wanted were never going to manifest until I actually claimed them. And that was never going to happen because I believed the Lord would just give them to me if I was somehow good enough.
And so today, I learned another line. God has given me power to create just about anything for which I’m willing to give fair value, presuming I’m willing to own it. If I don’t own it, no one can give it to me, not even God.
Lucky for me, the Master Key System is all about learning to own or claim whatever I want that is right and good. Let’s get this party started! I am so ready to go back to my future!by
