The future seems like a long way
off. Yet how often do we recognize that the future is the next hour, or the
next ten minutes? With all that is going on around the world how will the
future unfold for us? Do we believe that the future will take care of itself?
What if we were to change our thought process, and accept that we—you and I—can
shape the future by our thoughts, words and actions? This would mean that we
can create the world we want to live in by challenging ourselves to do so.
What if we were to look in the
mirror and say to ourselves that the future begins with the person reflected in
the mirror? How would this change our mindset? Would we realize that we cannot
leave it up to others to create our world for us?
With thoughts of the future in
mind, a conversation with my Inner Voice may add some clarity to this subject.
My questions will be in italics for clarity.
The future is often seen as a
faraway concept. Is that so?
The present moment is always
shifting to a time in the future. This means that although the beginning of
this sentence was written in the present moment, by the time the end of the
sentence is written the beginning is in the past. The future of the
sentence—the ending—had yet to be written when the sentence was being written.
The thought of the ending of the sentence was in the present moment even though
it had yet to be written.
This means that the thought which
is in the present moment creates the future. The future will happen whether you
consciously think about it or not. If your life is not shaping up as you had
planned take the time to examine your thoughts because it may be your thoughts
that are creating your future.
How do my thoughts create my
Thoughts create beliefs, words and
actions. Through beliefs, words, and actions you experience the world, and the
world reacts to you. If your thoughts are negative, your beliefs, words, and
actions will have a foundation of negativity. Then again if your thoughts,
beliefs, words and actions are positive your future will be more loving, and
kind. Imagine your thoughts as a door that you open each day and the view out
of the door will reflect your thoughts. No matter what your thoughts you have
to walk through this door. You have created what is on the other side of the
door—your future—by the thoughts you think.
If this is true then I have control
over my future, and the future doesn’t control me.
There are things in the future that
you cannot control because there are many other people living on Earth who are
creating the future as well. What you
can control now, and in the future, is how you react to the things you cannot
control. If you react in a positive way toward that which you cannot control,
you can increase your ability to create a better experience out of a negative
situation. If you choose to react in a negative way—and it is a choice—the
situation and the future, will become a challenge for you.
How can I—one person—create a
positive future for others to experience?
Think of creating a positive future
every time you interact with other people. Every word you speak, or action you
take, indicates the level of positivity in your thoughts. Your positive words
and actions will ripple out to all those who you touch causing a positive
reaction within them that will then ripple out from them, and on it will go.
These positive ripples, though they appear to be small and insignificant,
spread out creating a better future for all people.
So, a better future begins with
each one of us being more positive.
A better future begins when each
one of you becomes more positive and loving in the present moment. From here
the positive energy will radiate out to the world causing a global shift in
Be more positive now for a better
future. Sounds great.

Each week I send out a conversation
with my Inner Voice. This week we discuss our words and their impact on the
world around us. Here is an excerpt.
Why is it that we speak without
Few people take the time to
consider the listeners frame of mind before they speak. They are more
interested in speaking than they are in evaluating the situation they are in.
This causes many hardships because people fail to realize how powerful their
