As life for every soul unfolds until it becomes one with conscious Awareness, the surface part of the mind waits in anticipation of what the future will be. Will there be improvements in finances, love, health, happiness? Or will things continue as they have been or
--- God forbid
--- will they worsen?
Many decades ago, a song that was popular had lyrics that went, "whatever will be, will be / the future's not ours to see / que será, será." The lyrics maintained that what will be
--- will be, suggesting that one had little power of what will be. This of course flies in the face of the personal human ego, which, to justify its existence, asserts that it does have the power, in and of itself, to mold or shape the future.
However, mystically speaking, we live in an illusion of time and space
a veritable cosmic house of smoke and mirrors. What to the outer five senses seems to be reality may be but a dim image of what is
or is not. Every time there seems to be a new event in a person's life
be it a new year, new job, new house, new car, or new relationship
on the surface it may seem new, but in mystical reality it is old or even ancient if we give up the illusion of time.
