Even Common Occurrences are 

Acts of Destiny 



We must state to you that we are amused at your questions, for amongst them are those things that are as old as time and part of the new world as it enters. If you were there in the time of the Romans, you would find that there were too many chariots about. If you were in the time of the Chinese, you would find that the people crowded the streets and kept the high man in the rickshaw and in the cot from using the pathway. 

In your time, of course, it is the same, and soon your skyways will be as crowded as your highways. It is ever thus. 

Because people must transport themselves from place to place in conscious fashion, placing one foot before the other, to reach their destination or placing themselves in carts or in motors or in any type of motivation which is run by other than their own energies, they find that roadways are crowded with others who cannot in any way allow each other the right of way. 

If we would tell you that the road you travel is similar to your patterns of life and that each of you on that path has found that you become someone else when you are in charge of a vehicle, whether it be yourself or the vehicle in which you ride, you likely will understand me when I say that the roads to the cities are the destination of many people, as they move from their own life cycle into the hub of the city of their choice, their homes, or the destination of some kind or other.

 But something happens to a person when they are in charge of a mechanical instrument, and it is the same when they are in charge of their own personality. Each person, then, becomes a boss, a ruler, an emperor of their own command when they sit behind the wheel that in their own mind is in their command. It is, therefore, that which causes all people upon the highway to suddenly become isolated in their own ego, which says that the road is theirs, that they are in command of that which they ride, and therefore no one must cross the path before them. 

If you will stop and think about it from a psychological point of view, you will say that this is quite true, for people become a power drive filled with energy to reach a destination, the same in their lives as on their highway or road. If they push others out of their way to reach a point of destination, they have simply overcrowded their own pathway. They have not allowed any other personality to get in their way, when they wish to reach a certain destination, and so they insist, and blow a horn, and make themselves heard, and swear in language which is not of the gods so that others will move out of their way. Many times the others cannot even hear them as they shout in their closed vehicle, but they feel greater and stronger and filled with power when they are able to shout their commands to those about them, whether they hear them or not. 

People have not yet understood that the true power of what we have told you is the protective coating or capsule of the love of the Christ Consciousness. If each one in their vehicle places their car in such a capsule of Light and love, they are not in any way involved in wishing to push others out of their way, because they know that the Light which surrounds them automatically puts them in the right place as they move down the highway. 

The same is quite true in their daily lives. If they start out within this Light, they become immediately surrounded by an aura of such great love and beauty that those about them automatically move out of the way so that they may pass. It seems that people cannot accept this. They still do not understand the true meaning of such protection, for it is not to protect the person inside, it is to protect others outside from forcing their way into what is against their will, as well as the will of the driver or the personality who moves down a path. 

People must use this process to involve themselves not only for their greater good but for the good of others, and this, then, is the action which is most important—that one not think of their own means to reach a destination, but how they can do this in the most progressive manner, without in any way causing others to be disconcerted, angered, or filled with demands.

 Just recently those present here were told that time would be encapsulated for them to travel from one place to another. It was done in such a simple fashion that they marveled at what had occurred. They had placed themselves in the true meaning of the power of spirit and placing themselves into the Light, the acceptance of faith, and the love of the Christ Consciousness, they floated, or so it seemed, through the path chosen, in a quickened time element. If people would understand this, it is possible in any area that you wish. But people have not yet the faith to accept this, for they see only that they must reach a destination within a time period which is not truly time, as we know it, but is a symbol of a cycle of time. 

When you look into your life and see that within certain periods of time, you age, and year by year your body, your mind, and your abilities change and deteriorate. But there are some who go through life with love and happiness and joy, who seek not to hate or defy or to defile their neighbors, their friends, or their families, and in love, they find that instead of time collapsing and causing them to be squeezed into deterioration, their faces, because they have joy in them, become heightened and young, and their eyes become sparkling with the joy of living. 

And they awake each morning waiting for that which is to come with expectation, and each day becomes an adventure, each day becomes better than the last. And some who live in this fashion, when transition finally comes, seem merely to step from one plane of existence into another in a state of sleep. We would tell you that these personalities have found the secret of life. They have found it through love of life, faith, and joy in living. The same is true on any path you choose. If then, within an experience upon the highway, you find that you are not reaching your destination at the time specified, we say to you that in spirit, they laugh at you; for what you have not noted or seen is that the highway is new with beauty on each side, and the fact that you have been halted to see from the bridge, from the highway, from the road, something which you have not seen before. Perhaps it is a view of the hills with the sun shining upon them, perhaps a row of trees with wind fluttering the leaves, perhaps a river or a brook, perhaps only people walking below on the street and their houses that surround the highway. 

The pattern then would be changed if that person would look to their right and left, even if they are forced to creep along the highway, and if they were not angered or disconcerted because they have not reached their place of business or their home within the specified time limits, or if someone on the highway has halted in front of them. They could not know that each pattern has a destiny meant for them or for the person upon the highway and they have been stopped for some reason. 

If you have failed to get home on time, perhaps dinner is not yet prepared and your wife or your partner welcomes the fact that they have time to complete it. Perhaps in the household there is an error which you would just as soon not be part of, and you were held on the highway until it is cared for by those who have reason to care for it. Perhaps in your office someone has come who, in your own estimation, you would just as soon not speak to. That person waits and leaves and, because you are late, you have added an hour of enjoyment to your day, instead of being harassed by someone who would cause you distress. But if you do see that person, even if you are late and that person, because he has waited, has changed his mind about what he wished to talk to you about, and you find him friendly instead of angered, it is worthwhile to be halted on the road, especially if you have placed Light around the situation, so that when you enter your office, it is a place of joy and Light instead of frustration and anger. 

There is no one who is too late within the plan of spirit, for spirit has no timing and places many upon the path in order to learn patience, in order to see within themselves the resentments and to place them aside, to think, to see, and to contemplate. Perhaps you have left home without the opportunity to reach into prayer, and being held up upon the pathway, you have time to pray. You will find it does much for you and changes you from one who is filled with angers and frustrations to a peaceful one who enters into the day’s tasks with a new insight as to what is ahead. 

Transportation is only a means to give many a way to get from one place to another, but in that way, many occurrences come into your life which can change and make them better, to change another person’s life. Perhaps, held upon the highway, someone who has a problem with his vehicle finds a Good Samaritan who stops and helps him. If within an accident or some ailment to a personality, you give prayer and Light, you in your own way have become a healer, through God’s Will, that you were upon that highway when this error occurred. 

We say to you that humans see only that which causes distress, but each act is an act of destiny and each person is where he should be at the time chosen for him, even in what you call a “jam.” There are many actions of humor which occur. There are spiritual activities which, when you are alert, you will see and know and understand.
