Continued from "Origin of Certain Thoughts, Part I"
If you haven’t experienced any near misses, you may have at least heard or read about them. When people describe their near misses, they say things such as “The bullet missed my heart by just a few inches,” or “I was only a few feet away from car that crashed into crowd,” or “Had I not turned around, I would have been killed.” Are these misses luck, coincidence, or some power at work? I think you know answer.
And how about meeting you forgot to attend. As long as meeting went well, you probably would not think much of it. But what if a fire engulfed building where meeting took place and many people were hurt or killed? Chances are that you would realize you would have been in that fire too, and that forgetting meeting probably saved your life. How do you think it happened that you forgot?
What about those random events we call luck or coincidence? If so-called lucky break or coincidence involves meeting someone who gives you break, then you should know that your guide and other person’s guide may have worked hard to get two of you together. Our guides have a responsibility to remind us of certain things or help bring about certain events that would not have happened without their assistance.
Remember, they have blueprint of your life in their possession, and they are constantly checking to make sure nothing is missed.
How about that sudden illness that prevented you from attending party of year? Yes, one you were so disappointed to miss. Have you considered that something disastrous might have happened to you had you gone to that party? What does inconvenience and discomfort of minor illness matter when something so much more important is at stake?
This example shows that we can be helped and protected by things which are generally not considered to be good, such as illness. And it shows that there may be some truth to adage “Every disappointment is a blessing.” Guess who may have contributed to this blessing in disguise? You guessed right. Your guide will do whatever is necessary to protect you from negative experiences you don’t need to attain your goal in this incarnation.
Perhaps you had a grandfather like Mr. Rich, who discovered artificial gene that cured many diseases, became wealthy, and left a fortune to your dad and subsequently to you. Do you know who guided Mr. Rich through discovery process? This illustration shows that we benefit not only from direct assistance of our own guide but also from other people’s guides, at least indirectly. But let’s not lose sight of primary goal: cure of disease.
Grandpa Rich may have been a renowned scientist or medical doctor here on earth in another life and on other side, and may have made this discovery available on earth with help of many scientists and other cosmic forces from other side. To accomplish this, he was probably reminded of processes, directed, and guided by forces from other side. And since nothing comes from other side without passing by our guide, there is no doubt that Grandpa Rich’s guide played a major role in this case.
