(If you are reading this now… well 10/10/07 is just a day far in the past, dust and gone)
As a Taoist. I live now, flowing with my life as it happens
As a person. I live remembering the past, thinking about the future.
At times, my body, my mind, my actions shift. These are typically times of change for me, when knowing things are shifting, so I slow down, wait, relax all in order to let the times move pass. always to then act accordingly in the now rather than over reacting before things happen.
As a seer, as a oracle: its possible to cheat to look ahead.. and that’s not really a good answer since a Taoist doesn’t want to fix the future. (The past is beyond fixing, while now is always open to changes…) So rather my policy is to leave the future alone in order to be flexible and open to all possibilities.
So now yes, I feel a sense of omen, a sense that 10/10/2007 will be a turbulent day. A good day to stay at home and just take care of business.
Does that mean I believe something will happen 10/10/2007? Nope. Not at all, it’s a day like all other days to come: open to possibility. A day to some representing a day of change, to some a birthday, to some the opening of new possibilities and to some an ending of the way things were…
What I am trying to say: just because I feel a sense of foreboding doesn’t mean I will enable it or let myself dwell upon what might be. Instead, I listen to my inner voice, acknowledge the feeling. Take the time to slow down and enjoy the moment ever more. Tomorrow will come, it always does a step at a time.
All sorts of things are always possible, but they are always dependent upon the energy given to it now. So instead of fixing the future as it were the past. Build into now everything you know life should be. In that way all: forebodings simply fade to pass away…. And you can fix the future to be a more wonderful place.
For example: Global warming can be solved but only by acting in the now. See what I mean?
