This may have been discussed before, but here's my attempt to explain the "flash sideways." Technically, it's not two timelines going on at the same time considering Oceanic 815 is headed towards LAX in 2004, but the Losties are on the island in 2007. With course correction in mind, what if the new 2004 timeline in Season 6 ends where the 2007 timeline in Season 6 begins, only significantly different events occur to get them to that point.

Flash forward several years, Richard comes to see Locke a second time and asks, "Which of these items belong to you... already." Locke grabs the sand, the compass, and a knife. After Locke takes the knife, Richard believes he isn't "the one." What is the significance of the knife? Well..... if I remember correctly, Locke gave a knife to Ben to kill Jacob. Richard probably knew the knife in Locke's hands would lead to the death of his master, Jacob.
