Why Do People Act The Way They Do

Do exactly what we tell you to do or get out.

This is basically what’s going on with a couple of viral videos about passengers getting kicked out of oversold flights. One even forcibly. I watched that one a few weeks ago. And just now, another one of a family of four. Mum watches them on her newsfeed on her Facebook page.

Did the family of four get kicked out forcibly as well?

No. They conceded.

Why?

Why? It’s sort of complicated.

I have all the time in the world, my child. Literally.

Oh-kay. From the article that I read together with the video, the dad bought four tickets. He has two kids, one is under the age of two. So together with his wife, he was supposed to have bought four airline tickets. The airline employee explained that there is an airline ruling that stipulates that any child under two is not allowed a seat to himself or herself and should sit on a parent’s lap during the flight.

Do you know about this ruling?

No. My kids haven’t been two since they turned three. Anyway. The article explained that Dad actually bought that particular seat for his 18 year old who he sent home on an earlier flight. So it only made sense for his toddler to occupy that seat that he paid for. But the airline staff insisted that his toddler must sit on Dad’s or Mum’s lap. Otherwise the plane will not take off. “We can sit here for four hours,” was the airline staff’s words in the video.

Who was taking the video?

It looked like it was the wife’s phone. The airline wasn’t aware of it either.

I see. So how was it resolved?

The staff gave them an ultimatum. The airline went about in a round-about way but basically meaning, “Do exactly what we tell you to do or get out.” Those are my words, by the way.

So what did the family of four do?

The article said they got out. They had to fork out $2,000 for a hotel stay overnight and another flight the next day. But eventually, I guess they got to where they were going. Dad’s only angst is that there must have been four passengers who paid for four tickets on an oversold flight who sat in their seats. What he probably meant was that, the airline got paid double for four airline seats. But that’s just my opinion. Only the airline will know exactly who paid for what and how much.

What about the other incident? What happened there?

There was blood in that one. I think the poor chap had to be hospitalized or something. He was dragged out of the plane. Literally. So what is this all about, God?

You have two incidents. One was forced and there was hospitalization involved. And the other, one side gave in and they reached their destination, maybe with lighter pockets, but everybody is safe and sound.

Ya, we all know that. So what does it all mean?

There’s another video you haven’t mentioned.

Oh yeah. This one looked like the Pacquiao and Mayweather fight. Shirts were torn and everything. But you know who I admire the most in this video?

Who?

The flight attendant. She put herself in between these two I’m-gonna-bash-your-head-in-crazy guys and tried to separate them. I thought she was so cool. So why am I telling You this, God?

You’re not telling Me anything, child. You are actually asking Me why people are acting the way they’re acting.

Yes! Yes! Precisely! So why do people act the way they do?

Only they can answer that question, dear one.

 

 

There Is All There Is

10:55am

After our conversation yesterday where I suddenly ended it with Peggy Lee’s song “Is That All There Is?” I checked it out on Youtube. I found Peggy Lee’s original version but it didn’t feel right. That’s when I spotted Bette Midler’s cover. That felt right. So I posted it on my blog. So what is it about, God?

What’s the title again, child?

Is That All There Is?

Before The Truth came along, most of you have been asking yourselves this question. Is that all there is to life? As in, is that all there is to that particular lifetime? Because most of you did not know about reincarnation. There is a minority who believed but wasn’t even clear about it. Now that The Truth has been revealed and there have been proof that there is reincarnation, what do you think is the answer to that question now?

The answer, for me anyway, would be: No. That is not all there is. There is infinity. What there is to this lifetime is all there is when you make of it what there is of it. Does that make any sense?

Very much, dear one. A lifetime has so much more there is when you make the most of it. How do you think a soul will make the most of his or her particular lifetime?

A soul living in The New World you mean?

Yes.

Well then, I believe that a soul will make the most of his or her lifetime by living The Truth.

And what is The Truth? The Ultimate Truth?

That God is not separate–

We already know that, child. I Am asking about The Ultimate Truth on how to live your lifetime to the fullest.

Oh. You can only live your life to the fullest when you heed your soul’s desire. And since our souls are God then it will be God’s desire.

God’s desire for you is your desire for you. For your Self. For your Soul. You have a choice. You always have a choice. The choice chosen by the soul will be scary as hell because the soul knows no rules or regulations. This choice will usually be going against what is accepted as normal. Another choice that is from what have been taught you since the day you were born (which is of the old world) will be safe because it is within what is accepted as normal. The soul is not normal. The soul is free. Your rules and regulations are the opposite of being free. The opposite of freedom. Therefore when you heed your soul’s desire it will be for freedom. The freedom of your soul to finally live life to the fullest. It only takes one creation of freedom to free your soul. You should know that by now, don’t you?

Yup. And I’m glad it’s done. I can’t even believe I did it. But I did it.

What did you do?

I broke a rule. Am I going to post this? Never mind. I know what You’re gonna say–That’s entirely up to you, child. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Mockery–

Sorry!

To get back to our question–Is that all there is? Let us end this conversation with the answer. What is the answer?

There is all there is when you make all there is.

Be more specific, please.

Okay. There is all there is when you CREATE what there is to create in each lifetime.

And how many lifetimes do all of you have?

Countless.

What Is A Friend?

2:32pm

The richer your friends, the more they will cost you. – Elisabeth Marbury, writer.

If your friends are rich, the more you have to spend? Is that what this is trying to say, God?

Do you have any rich friends?

I used to. We’re not in touch anymore.

Why?

Because–oh.

What’s wrong, child?

Nothing’s wrong. I just figured out what that quote means.

What does that quote mean?

Let me just say, I decided to cut off contact with my rich friends coz I was not at ease whenever we got together.

How was it when you got together?

Well, once in a while they preferred fancy restaurants which they can afford. Fancy restaurants which to me as a frugal person, feels really frivolous because I have a budget to keep to. They’re nice enough to offer to pay for my share of the tab but that simply isn’t me. They can’t always keep paying for me now, can they? I am not a moocher. That’s when I decided I would prefer not to keep contact anymore. I didn’t really feel comfortable in high class places. The bottomline is I didn’t really feel like I belong with them even though I’ve known them since secondary school. My way of thinking is, just because we were together in the old days doesn’t mean we will still get along now. Especially when our lives have changed so much. It’s the same with my college friends. To me, when it comes to friendship, quality is more important than quantity. I can count my close friends on my fingers but they are really and truly my friends. I say that because, even though I am not in constant contact with them, they know that I still appreciate their friendship. Why are we talking about this, God?

Talking about what, dear?

Friendship.

Because, dear one, there are people out there who do not know the true meaning of the word.

Oh. Well then. Let me look it up.

Yes, do that.

Okay. I looked up “friendship” which wasn’t so clear so I clicked on “friend” instead. “Friend” means several things: a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard; a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter; a person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not hostile; a member of the same nation, party, etc. How’s that?

They’re fine. How about you? What do you think is the meaning of a true “friend”? In one word.

That’s easy. Love.

Easier said than done, is it not?

If it’s not easy, then it’s not friendship, I guess. To me, love is…love is–

Love is never having to say you’re sorry.

Cliche alert!

It may be a cliche but it is true all the same.

If You say so, Friend.

I say so, Friend.

Yay. God is my Friend.

God is everyone’s friend, child.

If You say so.

I say so.

Aargh. Let’s end.

If you say so.

AARGH!
