The Rule Of Threes

Trapped Between Man and Nature

Trapped Between Man and Nature

MELBOURNE, FL—Now I know I’m crazy—no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I hesitate to even post this, but in the interest of transparency and the truly straight-out-of-a-movie quality of the last unbelievable act… well, anyway, I’m seriously starting to question my own sanity, so take this post for what it’s worth. I hesitated nearly a week talking about this whisper because it was so unusual, but somehow it came out yesterday (and under duress I might add) after our Thanksgiving meal and it seems that just by voicing it, it may have put The Rule of Threes into affect.

Judge for yourself (and judge me all you want), but you’ve been warned.

From today’s entry of my Miracle Log (minor edits for clarification):

The Rule Of Threes

About a week ago—maybe because I’ve been practicing this Meister Eckhart serious surrender stuff—I heard Her whisper:

“From now on, each act will be returned three-fold.”

Interpretation: Her whisper felt like a new law of nature which She’s decided to enact, sort of like “gravity” or “warmth.” A law not just for me, but for everyone: Do a good act, and you will receive three good acts in return. Do a bad act, and you will receive three bad acts in return. Ditto for selfish acts, loving acts, kind, angry, violent, whatever acts.

I hadn’t noticed anything different until yesterday when I reluctantly voiced it to Mom and Jeff after our Thanksgiving meal (at Jeff’s constant badgering).

After telling them about it, I asked if it is fair if others are affected by it if they hadn’t heard about it yet and Jeff immediately said, “No.”

I asked, since I wasn’t sure if I was crazy or not, if I should share it on the blog and Mom immediately said, “Not if you’re not certain.”


GOOD ACT: This morning at Panera Bread, I donated a dollar to a charity box. There was no peer pressure, it was just a box sitting there on the counter. It was a spontaneous act. It wasn’t just my change like I normally do, but an extra dollar that I pulled from my wallet, which was unusual for me. For some reason (the holidays? I don’t know), I just felt compelled to help the children the charity was designed for. It was not because I was expecting something in return since I didn’t even think about the “new rule.”

RETURN I: I got a great, unexpected deal on the new Lazy Boy chair I bought today for the van. The Thanksgiving sale (which I did know about) ran out yesterday, but they had an unannounced (at least, no mention of it on their website) Black Friday sale of an additional 25% off the Thanksgiving sale price until 11 am that morning (and it was 10:30 when I walked in the door). I ended up saving (unexpectedly) about $450 off retail ($900-$450).

RETURN II: A half hour later, I told Mom I wanted to pay her for next year’s rent on the storage lot where I’m keeping my trailer at their condo but she adamantly insisted I not, “It’s only $20 per month. If it was $50, that might be another matter.” We’re both stubborn (everyone in my family is stubborn), but she won out. I unexpectedly saved $240.

(At this point, I still didn’t recognize the pattern, nor did I even think about the new Rule of Threes.)

RETURN III: A few minutes later, as I left the folks and while driving down Wickham Road, a motorcycle coming the other way hit what looked like a small bundle on the highway and it exploded (the bundle, not the motorcycle) into a cloud of cash bills (I don’t know if they were ones or fives or twenties or what). I kept going, thinking how truly bizarre this was—like something out of a movie—then I remembered The Rule and realized this was the third time today that “free money” had unexpectedly appeared. I considered this RETURN III because my odd, “boundary-less” state includes everyone (and judging by the stopped cars I saw in my rearview mirror, I’m thinking quite a few people came into some free money).

As I said, I was hesitant to mention this, but today’s “coincidences” were too much for me to ignore.

Treat someone harshly, and you’ll be treated harshly three times in return (by them or others). Show love to someone and you’ll be shown love three times in return (by them or others). Ditto selfish acts, kind acts, etc..

That’s what She told me. Take it for what it’s worth. I know it sounds crazy and I won’t blame you if you stop following this blog.

If it’s true, the implications are so deep and profound on so many levels it boggles the mind. If it’s not true, then I’m just crazy and you’ll understand why sometimes it sucks to be me.

  1. Good for you, Wayne. Sounds like a Karma thing, which I sorta believe in, but I don’t believe that bad things will happen to people who accidentally do something “wrong.” Imagine all the donation boxes you never put a dollar in…you may have tallied up a huge amount of bad Karma as a result. I choose not to believe that. Maybe you just got lucky that day. And, sad to think of the person who lost the cash, unless it was counterfeit, of course!

    • Thank you for sharing your experience. It is indeed interesting. But remember the non-eternal nature of things, and keep it in mind that the world is illusory while provisioanry existent so that we do not get attached to what appear to be real. To be in the middle way is always the hardest thing to do.

  2. There is of course the idea of ‘the world as perception’. If you believe something to be true, it is for you. This is the basis of superstition. Then there is the magical idea of ‘creating your own reality.’ The two are of course related. End of, I do not know. Whatever, it seems like a nice ad hoc ‘rule for living’ which could inhibit one’s less kind impulses ?

  3. 🙂 pretty good going, give a dollar receive dollars three fold.

    I cannot remember where i read this, however im certain it was a version of the bible. To receive more, you must give out what you have already been given(god related).

    I also remember hearing/reading something about a three fold thing and i cannot remember where. It has to be a good few months back now since it was before i began working, shame my memory works like a sieve in reverse and retains only the small details. 😀 ha, maybe ill take a look into it and try and find out.

    The rule you where given I assume only applies to you, however it would need observing. I believe an experiment was done fairly recently and it shows that things are not how they appear while observed by the human eye, that they act differently while we are not looking. They shot electrons through metal slits and observed the outcome, this experiment is long to explain but should be fairly easy to find on the net. Ill try observing the rule given to you however with a watchful eye things may act differently :/


  4. Hi Wayne,
    I am Lee McEachern, a friend of Keith Edwards. He told me about you about a year ago, but I just got on Facebook and you are my first reply!
    I like the the idea of the power and the reality of three within duality. I picture oneness trying to separate so it can know itself…and about as far as it got was a trinity of sorts.
    So a power, of sort, for three makes sense … I guess. In a way, that’s what we gave our self when we split in two … was three. So it would make absolute perfect sense that whenever we ever reach out to that illusory “other” that three of something is bound to happen! Thank you for your crazy – not – post about “The Rule Of Threes.” It made me think out of the box!

  5. ‘You should be like those who at all times watch and wait for their Lord’ (Luke 12: 36). Truly, such vigilant people are alert and on the watch for their Lord for whom they wait; they look to see if He is not by chance concealed in what befalls them, however strange it may be to them.
    Meister Eckhart

    On a lighter note, in reference to your feeling crazy, Ram Das said “if you think you are so enlightened, go visit your parents for a week”

  6. Wayne, my memory has it you’ve been tussling with this idea of ‘crazy’ for a while now. When you deem yourself to be ‘sane’ and then later see yourself as doubting your sanity, what is the line you’ve crossed over to reach that new, fresh reality where you feel might have lost your marbles? Is this a universal line?

  7. Hey, if you’re going to be insane, enjoy it.

    Here’s a viewpoint that affirms some of the other comments you’ve received, only in poetic form (words by Emily Dickinson)…

    Much Madness is divinest Sense –
    To a discerning Eye –
    Much Sense – the starkest Madness –
    ’Tis the Majority
    In this, as all, prevail –
    Assent – and you are sane –
    Demur – you’re straightway dangerous –
    And handled with a Chain –

    [Much Madness is divinest Sense – (620)
    By Emily Dickinson]

  8. Hi Wayne,

    Somehow I signed up to your blogs over a year ago. I love all of your pictures I get my email and some are just extraordinary! At any rate, this is the first time I have ever responded. The Rule of Three sounds just fine to me! And NOT crazy!

    Reading some of the replies, it certainly appears that they are not aware of the Law of Attraction. Same as Law of Three. What you do vibrates, and by the Law of Attraction, you get back what vibs you put out. Good, Love, Violence, Hate, etc.
    When you say “I don’t want to be sick” you will be sick. The Universe or She, as you say, does not know the difference. You get what you vibrate. (Fear of being sick) When you say, “I want to have excellent health” The Universe by Law of Attraction will respond. You will have excellent health, because you are vibrating good health.

    This applies to money, relationships; everything!

    What you did is give in love; unaware that you were. Thus, you attracted the same, (in this case money) and it can come in abundance.

    I discovered this in 2008, and, wow, what a difference in my life since then! I could give all types of examples, but I am sure some are waiting for this comment to end! If anyone is interested, read “The Law of Attraction” by Abraham-Hicks. That is a place to begin.

    Suffice it to say, you are not crazy, and if you continue to “count” your blessings, you will see a pattern! Once you realize this, apply it, you then can control your life without fear and live in love, happiness, abundance in all things and even bliss!

  9. Hi Wayne,
    I am a clinical psychologist working in an emergency ward with Real Crazy People, and I give you my profesional opinion:
    You Are Sane in the normality range for mystics!
    I am a mystic myself and I can judge both mental pathology and supramental extraordinarity…
    The rule of the rational thumb is not applying on supramental extraordinarity!
    Be happy and don’t wory and keep giving freely and receiving threforld: This is Your Golden rule!

    I wish I had one like Yours…
