The Empowerment Column 2014: Is it Murphy’s Law?
By Rev. Thabiti

Murphy’s Law says “If it can go wrong it will.” The reason why this happens is because everything has natural opposition or natural resistance. For example, we inhale and exhale or the breeze blowing against our faces when riding a bicycle downhill or the obstacles and challenges we must face on the road to success. Opposing forces must function together in order for anything to work or operate. For example, every car battery has a red and a black connection points. Red equals positive and Black equals negative. We cannot disconnect the black cable from the battery because we only want positive energy flowing into our car. The Universe does not work this way and neither does the car.
A better perspective is that “Whatever can go wrong will go wrong” is an extremely good thing. This is because this law keeps us improving and perfecting the things we make and create which stops things from going wrong. This is why if something goes wrong, a way to fix it, improve it or prevent it from happening again naturally kicks into gear. This is why we wear seatbelts. This is why we have insurance policies. We have these things because a variety of things can and do go wrong and if or when they do we have preparations, precautions and protections for it. Things that go wrong point out what our flaws or vulnerabilities are or shows where or what is the weakest link in something.
Murphy’s Law forces us to improve. Improvement means progress or change. One thing that is certain to never change is that things will always change. One of the best ways to stay ahead of or conquer Murphy’s Law is by using your Personal Time-Map exclusively available at www.ThePower.org.
We are not victims of Murphy’s Law. We are not doomed by it either. Murphy’s Law is a necessary aspect of life because this is what builds us out of our infinite potential into a fuller or greater expression. Every adversity is designed to make us stronger. This is why we get stronger in the gym – the more resistance or adversity we advance to the stronger we get. The more we are challenged in Life the more strength we will draw from within to ‘keep up with the Joneses’ or stay in the game and this is another good thing about Murphy’s Law.
Therefore Murphy’s Law is the existence of natural opposition present on anything we do. In others words, for every action there is a responsive reaction coming from the opposite direction. This perfectly fits within the “As Ye Sow So Shall Ye Reap” rule as well as the “Let Thy Will Be Done” rule.
The best lawyers write contracts that take into consideration every thinkable aspect of what could go wrong. They would not be able to do it if it were not for Murphy’s Law. This is why we have a spare tire. This is why we have fire extinguishers. This is why there are prenuptial agreements. Murphy’s Law works hand in hand with the World’s Greatest Question – What If?
Since things could always turn out infinitely worse proves that Murphy’s Law has its limits. Every time we get behind the wheel of our cars there are a number of things that could go wrong but they didn’t and there’s a Divine reason for it that we call “blessings.” Every time we fly there are an infinite number of things that could go wrong but it didn’t happen for the same Divine reason.
Everything or anything that could have gone wrong did not go wrong. Be thankful for all of the problems you don’t have. There is someone serving a life sentence in prison who would love to have the problems we complain about. There is someone with no arms and or legs who would love to have things we take for granted or the problems we complain about.
Without Murphy’s Law there would be no problems to solve. Problems are opportunities in disguise that give us a chance to demonstrate our level of maturity in how we respond when they happen. Simply stated, if you want it bad enough (whatever it is) you will have to figure out how to conquer the challenges of Murphy’s Law. What can go right verses what can go wrong is the nature of the game for everyone.
This week’s message is dedicated to Allen “Taft” Hawkins of Lindenwold, New Jersey. Taft passed away last week and was my Best Friend in High School. Taft and I went everywhere and did everything together including 4 years in the US Navy. Taft was the constant clown always poking fun and playing practical jokes. In this moment let us bless and surround his family and friends and all who may be impacted by his transition beyond the boundaries of mortality. We now bless and return him to the Giver and Provider of all things without grief, sorrow or self pity but instead with the deepest gratitude for the playful loving gift that he was and for the joyful memory he will always be.
