What has been does not have to determine what will be.
We usually experience our world in the present moment, then reflect on our
experiences when they’re in the past, and then figure out from these past
experiences what might be, projecting our past into our future. We therefore project
all of our uncertainties, doubts, and fears into our future and then try to avoid facing
them by tuning ourselves out and forcing ourselves forward.
Existence –> Present –> Past –> Future –> Timeless Awareness
However, at any moment we can turn this reactive creation of our lives
around by bringing awareness to the order in which we’re actually creating our lives.
We can imagine the future as though it’s already the past, and then live in this
experience in the present.
Timeless Awareness –> Future –> Past –> Present –> Existence
In other words, if you want to create your life on purpose, fastforward in time
in your mind to the end of the day or week or month or year or whenever, and
imagine feeling everything you’d ideally like to be feeling at that time about any or
every aspect of your life. Step into that experience and imagine how you’d feel about
all the time between now and then when you’re there, as though all the time up to
then is already in the past and it already went really well.
This way your mind will come to believe that this is simply the way it was.
It’s as though it already happened.
So now you’ve seen the end of the movie and know that everything turns out
exactly as you would ideally want it to—that you feel everything then that you would
want to feel about how everything happened. And so now you can experience the
movie with this awareness—that it leads to a very happy ending—and the result is
that this is the experience you’ll naturally and effortlessly create for yourself.
