Life without a future is magical.
– Byron Katie
It doesn’t mean having no images or thoughts about the future, or believing there is no future.
It means seeing clearly, through curiosity and investigation, that any images I have about the future are just that, images.
They are images and words, with perhaps sensations associated with them. If unexamined, the sensations will lend a sense of reality and solidity to the images and words. They will seem real, as if they reflect a real future. If examined, I see images as images and words as words, and feel sensations as sensations. It’s clear they are all happening here and now. I cannot find a future outside of these, happening here, and being images, words and sensations.
