Here’s a reading I’ve chosen for you at random from my book The Compass.
There are 365 readings in the book. This is number 223:
223: RELEASE THE FUTURE
Your future is in better hands when you are fully alive to the present.
How much time do you spend thinking about, or worrying about, the future?
How much time do you spend tuning into the present?
Looking back, what was the best opportunity you ever followed? When did that opportunity first present itself? What did you need to do to take action on that opportunity? Were you focussed on the present, or worrying about the future when you took that opportunity? Are you ready to tune into the now, and trust it to always be your guide?
Imagine your future as a resplendent open flower, its petals tilted towards the sun. Today those petals are enclosed within a tiny bud, still growing, developing colour, texture, and perfume in readiness for future emergence. Today that bud is in your care. Neglect it, and it may wither. Attend to it, and it will thrive. You do not need to worry about the colour of the future petals, how they will smell, what pattern they will form, who will see them. You do not need to worry about the future. Worry distracts you from the present. Attend to the present with total awareness. With senses wide open, attend to the now-bud.
