Note: This is another article that I wrote last January 12, 2018. Realized that I haven’t posted it and because there is another important thing that one can learn here I’m posting it now.
Upon the invitation of the BM, and also the instruction of my Guru Lama, I recently went to Davao to perform a ritual in the house of BM. Some of you might remember BM as a reader, turned friend, and who has been featured on this blog several times who has been a great teacher to me and to a lot of my readers.
BM did some booboo in her house by making renovations without checking out good dates. She didn’t know that ceiling, roof, and floor renovations no matter how small are considered major renovations. And so, because she committed a somewhat major Feng Shui blunder. To remedy this Guru Lama instructed me to go to her home and fix the problem.
Because I was also busy, I wanted to go “late” in the morning and come back an earlier flight. Earlier than the one she had booked me. Even before she booked my plane ticket, I already told her of my preferred travel time, but I think she wants to have a chit chat and maybe she was just following her instinct she still got me the later flight.
I had the ticket rebooked because after flying in to Davao in the morning, doing the ritual and flying out on the same day, I’m still having another meeting here in Manila. So, after rebooking it I was moved to the 6pm flight back to Manila, instead of the 8pm flight. To make sure, I even had myself checked – in already for the flight out of Davao at 6pm when I arrived there at 11am.
But I should have just gone with the flow. Because, my 6pm flight was initially delayed by 30 minutes. So the 6pm flight because 6:30pm. However, when we were already boarded on the A330 -300. We were all asked to off board the plane because some woman made an inane bomb joke!!! It was a full flight, as in every seat are taken. And according to ‘Google’, a A330 -300 has a capacity of 440 passengers. Imagine 440 passenger off boarding and boarding will take a lot of time! Furthermore, we were all asked to passed by security again, all 440 of us! Then they will have to offload all our luggage to retrieve the baggage of the one who made a bomb joke and to have all the bags sniffed by a bomb – sniffing dog!
To make the long story short, I arrived later than my original flight of 8pm would have arrived and to further burden me, my luggage and that of several other passengers were left behind in Davao. Airport and airline personnel forgot to load them back when they were offloaded.
Moral of the story. Know when we should go with the flow of the energy of the universe.
