Seeing Into the Future
Whether you know it or not, whether you believe it or don’t; you are constantly looking into the future; the time regarded as still to come.
You did it when you applied to college, seeing the day that you would graduate, long before you did.
You did it when you got married, had children, or moved into a house.
Back then, you stood on the threshold of what already was and imagined all that could be.
Then life happened. You still saw into the future, but you began to change your mind and slowly, gradually all of the possibilities became impossible.
The dreams you imagined were too difficult and you were no longer certain of their reality.
You are constantly seeing into the future of what can and cannot be and let’s face it, you are getting exactly what you predict.
Today, I’d like you to see into the future with a twist.
Instead of seeing that something just won’t work, I’d like you to imagine that it will.
I’d like you to try to ignore the naysayers. Dream without their consent.
Tell yourself you will make it on time, your children will behave and that you will have a beautiful day. See that you will smile, laugh and be filled with joy.
Take 3 minutes, sit, listen, be still, see and then see better.
Still your mind from the noise of what you’ve been calling “realistic” and step into reality.
See the future from your heart.
If you want to be better, you must see better.
If you want a better world, you must see a better you.
Be you, be well, be a time traveler.
