PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
As much as it is foolish to set out on a dangerous journey without provisions, so too is it foolhardy to ignore available facts
Full consciousness enables us to read in today’s reality the existence of, and qualities of, the seeds of the future. Together with a deep and intuitive understanding of cycles and the principles of resonance, this allows us to know what the seeds are probably going to become in time, and so discern something of the future. If we can do this then it is wise to do so in order to anticipate danger and opportunity for ourselves and the community.
It is because we need to gain control that we seek indications about the future
We find that natural processes are typically beyond our control, and therefore able to intrude upon our choices and comforts. Yet there is an underlying order to life, which applies to everything, including the forces of Nature. Whatever can be measured is, to some extent, contained.
It is meaningful to distinguish between what is superficial, and what is real and dependable. We may not know whether it will rain tomorrow – but we do know that it will rain again one day. This is not clever or trite; it is how we maintain our sense of order by which we keep at bay the terror of our powerlessness in the face of natural forces.
Whether by using traditional superstition, old wives tales, or a barometer to measure air pressure, we seek an indication to infer data about the future – because we feel the need to gain the sense that we have some measure of control.
The very process of enquiry into the future has an effect – we sharpen our powers of observation and develop exceptional competence in judgement. It seems meaningless to decide whether it is because we develop better powers of analysis, or we gain more resonance of intuition, the outcome is that we know more about what is likely to be coming towards us.
By this a secret is revealed – that all secrets can be revealed. Whatever we need to know can be made known when we train ourselves in the necessary attitude of mind. There is order in the universe, and its operating principles can be revealed to one who has the application to discover them.
It is a great love of ours to attempt to live our experiences in advance. Yet the reality, of what is, is immediate and circumstantial – it registers through our senses and takes physical form. However, the reality of what is to come is non-physical and affects the mind and heart. It is not without value to liken the barometer to the feelings we have – up and down, measuring atmosphere and giving clues about what might be coming next.
This whole practice of measuring the future against the present is the source material by which we conceptualise and gain broad generalisations and abstract ideas about life and how it all works. The past has given us clues, but our ability to predict examines how well we have understood them.
