Re-reading Bruce Moen’s book, Voyage to Curiosity’s Father, I came upon the chapter that deals with how event lines are laid down so we can live our lives in the most fruitful way.
This all takes place in the Afterlife, as we call it, where Moen and others are asking questions and getting answers from workers called Consciousness Workers who understand the complex machinery that makes our lives happen.
One of the clearest examples of what NOT to do if you want your day to go smoothly is told in Chapter Five. You know how we start thinking of a dozen things at once, remember we need to grab something at the store as we are rushing off to a dentist appointment, try to pull in fast, leap out of the car, then find there is a lineup, stand fretting wildly while perfectly reasonable people are paying for their goods, get our own blood pressure up and irritate everyone around us. You know that syndrome? I’ve been there for sure.
We think, in this western culture of ours, that more stuff crammed into a small space of time is so much better. We are doing so much better if we just get ten things done in a half hour instead of only three.
Not so. Chapter Five explains it all beautifully, and I recommend you go to Amazon and order the book, as it has information that will really make you stop and say “Eureka! So that’s how that works!”
As we complicate the “event lines” that these workers have laid down so we can get to our dentist appointment successfully, by trying to add in half a dozen extra things at the last minute, we complicate not only our own lives, put ourselves and others in danger, but we really mess up other people’s lives too…people we will never meet or hear about. Because all the event lines are carefully, meticulously arranged so they cross over at just the right moment and so on.
The moral of this story is:
Be very clear, first of all, about what you want and set out an intention for that. If you can get the intent correct in all respects the first time, so much the better. Then the workers can lay out your event lines so your progress toward your goal is smooth and comfortable.
If you change your mind about part of the intent after a few days, adding things or changing something, which is easy to do, then those event lines that intersect with thousands of other people must be altered too.
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line, right? So get your plan right from the beginning, that’s a good way to start. But if you must change things, give it time to sort itself out.
Like Monroe’s books, most of us need to read Moen’s books more than once to get all the meat off those bones. Some of these concepts are new and confusing at first.
And if you don’t want to learn anything about all this, but you just want life to go smoothly and get what you want in the easiest way? Then take the advice of a wise yogi, Bhagavan Shree Rajneesh:
“Always go with the river of life. Never try to go against the current, and never try to go faster than the river. Just move in absolute relaxation, so that each moment you are at home, at ease, at peace with existence.”
You know when you are not flowing with the river of life, and when you are messing with everyone else’s event lines to no avail. Your body tenses up, you feel like you want to scream, you feel great frustration at the obstacles in your way, and your blood pressure climbs. Just to mention a few of the physiological results of trying to fight the current, push the river, mess around with event lines.
Whatever you want to call it!
