I heard a story lately that enthralled me. It was about the airplane called the Concorde which, thirty years ago, was the first passenger plane to fly at Mach 2—1,350 mph—between the United States and Europe, cutting flight time down to less than four hours. Of course, the maiden flight was accompanied by important guests who were excited to have this new experience. Among these guests were media personnel who would chronicle the event for generations to come.
One such news reporter was given the grand tour of the plane’s cockpit with the other guests and was intrigued to learn that no one was keeping the airplane on course during the flight. When he questioned this, he was given the answer that because they were going so fast, and given the slow reaction time of humans, by the time they were supposed to be reaching France they would be far off course. Instead, there were two computers manning the cockpit. The first computer would take a course reading every few seconds and feed this information to the second one, which in turn would make the required corrections to the flight in order to reach the desired destination.
He mused this over for an hour when he returned to his seat and and was bothered by something he couldn’t quite put his finger on. He finally asked the flight attendant if he could visit the cockpit again. Upon entry, he knew immediately that it was not something he had seen that was bothering him, but something he had heard. The computers made a certain sound when they were talking to each other and the news reporter now noticed that the noise they made when communicating back and forth was almost constantly. He asked the crew how often the airplane was off course and was astounded by their answer—99% of the time! After this he was assured that they would reach Paris at the appointed time, plus or minus a minute or so.
So why are our response times too slow to correct courses before we miss the mark? Maybe we are denying that we are off track in the first place, which is caused by resistance born of fear. Maybe our compelling need to be right doesn’t allow for the crucial data to flow in and make the accurate corrections.
Could we focus ourselves on the purpose we wish to serve as the Concorde focused itself on reaching its destination? If we were to stop requiring ourselves to be on course all the time, would we be able to look at mistakes differently? Wouldn’t it be awesome to just accept course corrections out of love, for ourselves and for those around us who are giving us worthy data?
I know that we can clear up the resistance in our lives that hampers our accurate course corrections. We can free our channels of debris and work in harmony with the wholeness which wants our good and desired outcomes. We came with the necessary equipment, whether we use it or not.
