How does one plan the future while simultaneously staying in the present? It seems impossible. Come from a clear place and use the guidance, intuitions and instincts you feel now, to make decisions about events in the future. Even then, the results will sometimes appear to be a mistake. In those instances, perhaps that’s exactly what you needed for your personal growth. The universe is clever (and loving) that way.
Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming. –Alice Walker
There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow. Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live. -Dalai Lama XIV
As for the future, your task is not to foresee it but to enable it. -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
