Week 23 – Ideas ahead of their time

After the three separate days of sitting in silence from Week 22A I enjoyed the realization of the simpler things.

My mother, sister and I enjoy watching older classic televisions shows like The Waltons, Dr. Quinn-Medicine Woman, When calls the heart, and the Love comes softly series.  Such times of simplicity and innocence and no electronics or noise overload, how pleasant that must have been.

But in those simpler times also new ideas sprung up,  people were looking for the American Dream – Land, House, Family, Hard Work.  The new ideas lead to new inventions and progress, but at a much slower pace than today’s society.  People’s new ideas and inventions, techniques, cures, although slow in developing, were fast for their time.

Fast forward to the 1960’s and Jetliner travels, more specifically the two major airlines I remember as a very young girl, TWA and Pan Am.  My father was an Air Force fighter pilot and we were to be stationed in Aviano, Italy for a couple of years.  Just prior to that we had been living in Fort Walton Beach, Florida with the Air Force too.

On our return flight back to the United States in the early 1970’s on Pan American I vividly remember a coloring book we children were given to pass the time of the 8 hour long flight.  Within the pages were pictures of the evolution and future of air/space travel.  The Wright brothers to propeller planes, to the jumbo jets, supersonic jets, the space shuttle and the space station, and space walking.

I remember a short conversation with my dad that seemed so appropriate in the timing of our Master Keys Experience.  In looking through and coloring some of the pages (The pictures attached are NOT mine – from Google Images stock) I remember asking Dad if these things were really real?  Was there really going to be jets that flew from New York to London in just a few hours?  Were we really going to have space shuttles and a Space Station?  His answer – “Yes, Chelley, we will have those someday soon.  So many of them have been invented and created, but we have to wait for the world to catch up to the ideas”

Little did I know how powerful that one statement would be for me this very day.  Because at the approximate time of that flight and intense conversation the world had been given the beginnings of the Star Trek series and 2001 – A Space Odyssey had just been released as well.

Fast forward to this very day and we have seen the coming and going of the Supersonic Jet, the Space Shuttles, NASA shuttle program (Cannot believe we cannot watch that any longer) and the HUGE influence of all of the ideas that came forth from a science fiction television show – Star Trek.

Was Gene Roddenberry a man ahead of his time?  So many ideas sprang from the mind of this one man – What we now know as a cell phone quite possibly was the communicator device.  The phaser is the more advance weapon we now use as a Taser (not quite to Phaser yet)

Gene Roddenberry

But to question Gene Roddenberry leads me to Leonardo DaVinci, another man with such vision and ideas and purpose, and I dare say – ahead of his time also.

All of these stories coming together, in MY lifetime, how’s that for timing?

But here I sit, in Southeast Missouri and still wonder with some emptiness and uncertainty in me – what is truly my purpose?  Have I been a child born ahead of her time?  I have always been told I am highly intelligent, but yet I have always stood out from the crowd.  I did not feel like I really have “fit in” with the area and society I live in.  Knowing that clarification comes in silence, I will sit longer a few more days and I know revelation will come.  This is where I am at this moment, where I am supposed to be, and currently it is enjoying the journey with all of my MasterKey Members as we excavate the cement buddha and work at finding our true authentic selves.   We are ALL searching, We are all growing, we are all needed, right now, in this moment, for each other.

    That’s pretty interesting to really take a step back and see how much the world has changed in such a short time period! This post reminds me to take that step back and see all that has been accomplished. We can do more than we have ever been able to!!!!

    Loved your memories and your insights. Thank you! Yes, you, child ahead of her time who doesn’t quite fit in–the type of person who changes the world.
