“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!

embrace the  possibilities,

    Hi Leah, You have been in our church bulletin since Oct 21, 2012. Of course, this is thanks to your Grandparents. But they have given us updates and most recently the ‘address’ to your blog. I write the bulletin and have included this address in it for people to look in to see how you are doing. I also quoted a couple of your remarks. The theme of the church bulletin this week is ‘encouragement’.. you are truly an encourager and I thank you. May God continue to bless you.
