The future… 7th December – Thanks Peter, Pip, Lesly, Nigel…
The future – breaking up by Billie (lyrics at end)
Billie Eillish is looking to the future
Her future self
Are we always looking to the future,
It’s the only direction we have to move
The future is the only place that we can engage in
The future is where the hope is…
Leo Tolstoy Future love does not exist – love is a present activity only.
The man who does not manifest love Int he present has not love.
Triggers in the now – take us to the past…
So what is the future – it is a dream…
What is the moment – a state
A flow – like when you write
An idea turns into something
Where it’s not yours any more – it’s totally in the moment
Planning as a future – when the future arrives
You may miss it…
Future is planning…
future is sensing…
Future is an oppourtunity
How do we balance planing the future and living the moment?
Going with the flow –
It’s a bit of the past and a bit of the future
Being aware that I’m not in my moment reminds me to do some mindfulness
Takes me to now…
Time in non linear – it’s circular
We’re always trying to sort time…
Why is that?
Language shapes your reality
And language is linear…
Indigenous language has no right or left,
Yet they know what direction they are facing
Breaking the cycle of linear….
To communicate and translate
The language people use in poetry
Is the power…
To write and express is for yourself…
What ever you want to say that’s OK
pip mentioned Arrival
How many movies are there that mess with past to change the future…
Especially science fiction..
Do we really think we have any control of the future?
Leslie went off for a minute thinking about the future… and the past
Busy day, a foot massage…
Not the feet!!
Now’s she’s pooped and missed the moment
Having a dream for the future has kept Lesly going
In Covid we looked forward to the future to cope with the present…
Dreams are reliving a past thought and memory
Wants and needs can drive the future
Is it possible to live in the now?
Is the now a reality? Interstellar! Agh….
Writing in poetry can bring the now…
The now is not the future… it’s a state …
The patterns of going to the future
Getting into a state – can be good because it feels good and the moments in the future can be recalled
Meyer quote – you remember how people make you feel
I can be sad in the moment and cry About it
The future i can talk about the sadness but I don’t feel it the same way…
Pain… we are blessed that pain doesn’t stick with us
The moment is the breath between the past and the future
All we have is a breath…
I can’t seem to focus
And you don’t seem to notice
I’m not here
I’m just a mirror
You check your complexion
To find your reflection’s all alone
I had to go
Can’t you hear me?
I’m not comin’ home
Do you understand?
I’ve changed my plans
‘Cause I, I’m in love
With my future
Can’t wait to meet her
And I, I’m in love
But not with anybody else
Just wanna get to know myself
I know supposedly I’m lonely now (lonely now)
Know I’m supposed to be unhappy
Without someone (someone)
But aren’t I someone? (Aren’t I someone? Yeah)
I’d (I’d) like to be your answer (be your answer)
‘Cause you’re so handsome (You’re so handsome)
But I know better
Than to drive you home
‘Cause you’d invite me in
And I’d be yours again
