To Be Happy, And to Stay That Way
Living in the past...
A hard thing.
Living in the present...
But can you live in the present,
While looking forward to the future?
That is a feat.
Can you live,
While still looking forward,
For the rest of your life?
I think you can.
To be both happy,
To be living life to the fullest,
While at the same time,
So you can deal,
With the things that life will throw at you.
Must keep in mind the happiness,
Of its people,
At that time,
Equipping its country,
To deal with the future.
It changes the way,
You view the world.
And the way you deal with it.
If a person was focused,
Only on the present.
As the moment comes.
But what of how they spend their time?
Every time that person would be asked,
If they were able to make,
Some event or other,
They would have no answer.
They would never be able to know,
What they would be doing,
On a specific day.
The present-minded person,
Might say yes,
To some activities.
And not thinking for the future,
Before this person knew it,
The day of the event,
Would be upon them.
Not thinking about the future,
They would not have planned for that event,
Would not have remembered it.
Thinking of the future,
Can mean a variety of different things.
It can mean,
That you are conscious,
Of what is happening,
It could mean,
Having a vague plan,
For your future.
To be certain,
Being too future-minded,
As you think so much about the future,
You rarely stop to think of today.
You forget to ask yourself,
Am I happy now?
Living in the present,
While thinking about tomorrow.
Am I happy now?
How do I make that true,
In the future,
Living too much in the present,
Or too much in the future,
Are both dangerous ways,
To live your life.
How do you live in the present,
While thinking about the future?
It’s a delicate balance.
A necessary one,
To be happy,
And to stay that way.
Reality Dream or Dream Reality
It’s difficult to live in a world where I can dwell on the past and live in the future. I chase that dream I had, blind to the world around me. One day, I trip, and I fall. The dust swirls up into the air, forming a cloud of nebulous, gritty sightlessness, but I already cannot see. I feel like a child, crying out, alone, at nothing, like waking from a dream. It isn’t real. Not yet. But I tend to forget that. And it hurts almost as much as being rejected in the present. I love my gift of future sight, but every time I look in the stars, it seems I lose a bit of myself, a bit of today, a bit of now. Sometimes I just need to walk alone, I guess. Keep my eyes on the future.
I’ll make it.
Which experiences will I play, projected on the walls of my memory, called upon like an old friend? I pin up the lessons I've learned by a firm hand and a soft hand. Moments and moments of teachings reflecting myself and projecting my future as they pass through the front door of my imagination and out the window of my eyes. Is this the desire of my soul? Do I speak to confirm the truths that I've learned or do I speak to be taught of the flaws in my thoughts? Some words will fade away like stars in the day when I hire other orchestras play harmonies with what I have imagined... or foreseen. Is there a difference?.. Do you understand what I said when I meant to say what I did? Will you look ahead to design your patchwork square in a quilt that stretches farther than human eye can see? Eventually to eternity?

A Bit of Heart
A time when we don’t hate what we don't understand
A time when eloquent speech flows free and unbanned
A time when flying cars zip by cities on a strange world
A time when nations unite under a new flag unfurled
A time when everyone has clean water and plenty to eat
A time when truth's more important than a post or tweet
A time when we rise to meet the future without fear
A time so far away, yet with a bit of heart so near
Rome Fell, Egyptians Fell..USA?
To see the future is to acknowledge the past.
"Ask and you shall receive" is correct. Should you pursue the knowledge of the future you will have it, but you must be earnest, open hearted and desiring with no evil intent in your heart. It is then, with meditation and guidance of oddities, you will see parts of the future.
To wake up disturbed, knowing something ominous will occur is foresight. It is accurate.
Do not doubt your visions and dreams.
I have been "gifted" with foresight since childhood. My adult children have chosen not to be parents. They witnessed my accuracy all of their lives. Part of them rejects all of this notion, understandably. Actions speak louder than words. They know that children are "screwed" in today's time.
Being future minded can be a positive goal oriented experience.
The true future minded person sees that we (In America) are in for a hell of a time.
During the atrocities and strife soon to come (approximately 2022, after the California quake-2020) the understanding of love will be realized around the world. Compassion turned to action will be all that is available to those in need.
