Fairies, Fate, Pixie Dust, Blown, Magic
I guess it was during my high school days when I admitted to myself that God was not this old guy with a white beard wearing a white robe, sitting on a golden throne somewhere past the sun, who handed out favors to those who jumped the most.
The theology classes seemed not to want to go into that sort of thing, particularly when it came to what is my destiny.
The analysis was about making sense of the New and Old Testaments. The Exodus and the travels of Paul following Jesus’ death did interest me, but I always wanted more.
My doubts were not about God ever, but I doubted the experts who interpreted all these teachings.
Why was I supposed to trust somebody else’s view of things?
The only answer I could ever get was,”Because the Bible says so.” Everybody seemed afraid to put their own interpretation to the”Holy Word.”
Do not get me wrong; my upbringing did give me a strong foundation, for which I am grateful, and there were many teachers, nuns, and priests whom I admired.
It was also nice to find out that one of the new young priests– fresh from the seminary when I was a high school senior, sporting shoulder-length hair– was a Beatles fan.
He once said that he felt that Jesus would have been listening to”Let It Be” and”Hey Jude.”
I now hear it is a plus for the college that he is now the school principal– although I also heard he’s minus the hair.
I still wanted answers about more authentic gut about how to confront fears and challenges in life that they just could not seem to commit to.
Now, as I look back, I believe they must have had the exact questions and also would have liked answers.
The Course in Miracles further states,”How long can it take in which God would have you?
I started college at Kent State, not knowing where I was heading, other than to parties.
Quickly I realized that I wanted to put the books down for a while and get into the actual world.
Dealing with Uncertainty
In a prior session I discussed free ebooks online about learning how to go within and bring forth your destiny to the world.
As uncertain as I was, and impatient for growth and answers, I knew one thing for sure, and that was I needed to earn money.
The answers I was getting for destiny help in the beer parties seemed good when listening to classic musicians, but they weren’t good enough for me.
This was when I began looking at the skies, and I flew directly to it, and by 1975 I had been the property of the United States Air Force.
“How cool is this?” Is what I felt.
I found a few answers, and the truth about Viet Nam rather fast.
Many of my airmen friends were recently back from tours of duty in Viet Nam, and the war was now over.
I must hear the war stories firsthand over face your fears over beers at the NCO (noncommissioned officers) club.
They were training me as though I could be sent there, but fortunately for me no extra troops were being sent.
The 1970s were secure but pretty wild for meas an airman.
As a young father with inspiration extending through me and into my gorgeous daughter, my responsibilities kept a lid on the wilder times.
I needed to be serious and help make a clear destiny path for Erin’s future.
I guess you could say I was the “gung ho” type, and this excited me as I would learn from the Air Force how to confront your fears.
I remember one night on a training exercise, some of us under the stars until sunrise.
About a dozen people were gazing at the starry sky while we maintained our position in our C141 aircraft. The practice called for the arrival and departure of several aircraft throughout the evening.
This intensified our discussion about the cosmos and the mystery behind the universe. I’ve always had a keen connection and a fascination regarding all that is visible and outside in the sky.
One of the men said to me that it appeared as though I knew something they didn’t, as we all gazed and spoke in awe of the beauty of that particular night.
I can’t say that I knew something, but I have always felt connected somehow to’Something’ that teaches us how to know your destiny.
