I once attended a meeting where a group of people sat in a circle and shared what was happening in their lives. Then they moved to the future. Dreams, goals and aspirations were voiced. People shared what had happened and what they hoped would happen. In fact, it was imperative that the happenings hoped for come into being.
I remember saying, “I have reached the time in my life where nothing needs to happen. The interesting thing is that since I have adopted this approach to the future and this way of living, lots is happening.” What greater freedom is there to be free of the future and therefore fully present in the moment? Strange, but it is in the moment where everything happens.
Do you have the courage to declare, “Nothing needs to happen?” Can you see that such a declaration is an invitation to possibilities?
