New Age prophets and their religious teachers spoke of various convergences and impending disasters around the turn of the century, of fire and earthquakes, famines and floods. And then there were those charismatics, wiser in the ways of the world of commerce than their more esoteric cousins, who preached the gospel of the laws and the profits and all their brethren were amazed at how well they prospered.
And so it was as the jet neared the coast of North America, I reflected on the ways and means of humankind. Throughout the years, Gideons guidance had given me a workable perspective of life and living.Instead of spending too much time on Near-Death Experiences,he had preferred to instruct me on the joys of Near-Life Experiences as it related to our present journey here on Earth.
The prospect of learning from Gideon once more brought a feeling of great excitement and anticipation. I certainly could use some help and advice in numerous areas of my life. The times,they are achangin has been true since time immemorial. The only permanent aspect of the universe is change and our ability to be successful and happy is directly proportional to our ability to adapt to and work within change.
The voice on the cabin speakers at that moment brought me back to reality. We will be arriving in a short while. In preparation for landing, please bring your seat backs to the upright position and return all trays to their locked position. Make sure your seatbelts remain fastened. It has been our pleasure serving you and if your future plans call for air travel, please consider flying with us again.
I complied with the request and then turned around, glancing up and down the aisles, hoping to catch another glimpse of Gideon. He was nowhere to be seen, which did not surprise me since appearing and disappearing seemed to be old habits of his. I gathered my personal belongings, packed them away in my flight bag and prepared for arrival.
The touch down was as smooth as silk. If you were not aware that it was happening, you might not have even noticed. Thats how it goes sometimes just as in real life, one minute up in the air, the other down on the landing strip without so much as a bump to let you know youve arrived.
