The simple action of moving forward in life, of making little decisions – little choices – is enough for the divine Bernoulli effect to operate in our lives.
The Christ, “the divine influence, ever-present in human consciousness,”* operates to uplift our thought – adjust it spirit-ward – and through that divine influence, our every choice and decision is made better. This helps us fly higher at every juncture. Each little choice – little decision – moves us forward, and just as lift is achieved as an airplane moves forward (the Bernoulli effect**) – so lift is achieved in our lives when we make choices influenced by the Christ, by Truth, and we move forward in Spirit. The more our decision are influenced by the Christ, the faster we move forward in thought, the less static pressure there is, and the more lift we get.

**According to Bernoulli’s Law (in simple terms), as the horizontal flow of fluids increases in speed, static pressure decreases. As air flows over a curved airplane wing, the air on top of the wing has to travel a longer distance and has to move faster than the air passing under the wing, so the air pressure above the wing becomes lower than the air pressure under the wing. And since fluids (air) flow from areas of higher pressure to areas of lower pressure, the air below the wing tries to move to the area above the wing and lift is achieved.
