“The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment”
Every negative thought is bred by fear. Worries about not being good enough, of failure, of the future, of what we do not understand or know. Fear lives in the past and in the future. But it cannot live in our present. If you are so immersed in the present moment, it is impossible for fear to step in. Fear will only start to weave its web if you dwell in the past, or about what could happen in the future, be it in a few seconds time, a month, a year, or 10 years from now. Instead of asking 'what is going to happen to me?' ask 'why is this happening for me?'
"We sow the seeds of our future hells or happiness by the way we open or close our minds right now"
