“You can never plan the future by the past.” -Edmund Burke.
It’s no secret that psychics, fortune tellers, and tarot card readers are a sham and this is why I believe that. Because, as humans We have a mystical tool that allows us to shape our futures, a little thing called choices. However, many things occur to us that We did not choose, but even so you can still choose your perspective. Even when circumstances seem particularly bleak, you can choose to see the glass half full. If We could actually see the future, surely it would change or improve upon the decisions We do make. Therefore, many people seek out someone(or something) to help guide them on the path towards and through this unknown future landscape. Our need to know or control all aspects of our lives brings in the worrying thoughts, repetitive condemnations, questions, and fear. All this can culminate into a visit to a psychic. However, they are no more knowledgeable about the future than you are. This is comforting, because not knowing the future, means that anything is possible! Certainly knowing the future would have reassured my Parents when I was in the ICU of a hospital. Because there was no way at that present moment they could see this from where they sat inside my hospital room.

Even the Doctors, whom so closely monitored me at the time did not predict this. As you can see, the future is unpredictable by most if not all. This is good news, because it indicates that the future can radically change. When nothing is certain, anything is possible. Sometimes, you just have to let go, as much as you want to hang on. In letting go of absolute control, you allow peace to enter and can more readily enjoy the ride. It’s when I let go that I was able to let myself be surprised. If you can negate our human need to have control, you may just find some contentment, and peace of mind. In no way am I suggesting you fall like a leaf into the wind. Just that by releasing some of the burdens of striving it will allow more life to happen to you, rather than you happening to it. In doing so, you’ll be headed to your goal with less strife. Not to mention, if life was predictable it would be lackluster and unchallenging. It is in our challenges, that We find what were truly made of, and surprise ourselves. It’s in the unscripted pages of time that We find the many paths available to us. Be sure to tune into that small still voice inside, and follow the path that brings you life!
