Today’s practice begins with an acknowledgement that the future is made up rather than a fait ‘accompli, something that has already happened, is inevitable, and by that logic, we are already at the effect of. The strange fact is that we are much more comfortable with lying to ourselves about the past than we are fabricating on behalf of a future. We re-write what happened in the past to avoid the truth about ourselves and we envision the future as an extension of our assumed limitations, also to avoid a truth about ourselves — our abilities, strengths, and potential. It may feel like a mistake to speak about a bright future that hasn’t happened, because we might be wrong. And yet if we’re not willing to imagine a tomorrow that has never happened before, then there really is no tomorrow, there’s only the rehash of yesterday. Today’s practice is to make up a new future in some way, to assert a destiny that’s entirely new, in alignment with your most heartfelt wishes and a highest possibility you see for yourself or for your world. Yes, you might be wrong, but lying about the future is entirely forgivable if one’s heart is in the right place.
