Inner Journey: THE KEY TO THE FUTURE
“The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.”
— John Schaar
We’ve been taught to look forward to our future. Somehow, we believe, things will be better then. But the future is not available to be lived – we can only live NOW. So what are we doing to live best right now? What are we doing now that will bear fruitwhen we reach some future now?
“Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.”
— Roger Babson
A Note from the Universe

“What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself.”
-Anna Jameson, 1855
We wouldn’t aspire to something if it wasn’t within our capability to achieve it. We can see, both literally and figuratively, ahead as far as we want to go. Because we can perceive something means that it is already a part of us. Distance, whether in time or space, is all relative.

Biddy Tarot: Make The Most Of Your Year With A New Year Tarot Spread
It’s that time of the year again when many of us go into a mad panic thinking, “Where on earth did the year go? And what’s up ahead in the new year?”
