The future begins NOW ...
It is a perfectly natural thing for us to ponder and muse on things we would like to have or experience at some time in the future. Perhaps we see ourselves having a particular skill or set of skills that we do not have at present; perhaps we want to buy our first home or upgrade from the one we have; maybe we daydream about a new job, or about living somewhere else, about travelling, about developing a better Mount, Defense, or whatever … these are all natural processes, and in fact, fundamental to the way in which we differ from the rest of the animal kingdom, here on this planet.
The thing that all of these things have in common, if they are to be realised, is that they have their beginnings, rooted in the present. The future starts right now! I say this because I understand a basic truth: all of the musing, visualizing, asking the universe for help, prayer, etc – will do very little – unless we take ACTION!
The future begins now. So if there is something you want to do, to achieve, to change about yourself – take a small step toward it right now; do something today that will get you moving, even if only a little, in the direction you need to go, for the dream to be realised. Sometimes, these goals, wants, needs can seem a little to far removed from our present state of reality – but as the saying goes, a journey of a thousand steps starts with a single step. Take it now.
