Do We Make Ripples Or Not!

Hi,

.

Welcome to a new week.
I wonder what it holds for us!

.

I have often thought that so many people seem to be willing to pay their monies and go to see mediums and fortune tellers.

They want to know stuff that seems to be of prime importance to peoples all over the world., such as ‘Will I fall in love soon’, or ‘Is my lover unfaithful to me’….or ‘Will my hopes be fulfilled’.

.

I wonder if we really do want or need to know the future, after all there are bad things that can happen as well as the fulfillment of desirable dreams.

Would we really want to risk finding someone who really could do the deed and who then told you exactly what sad things were waiting just along the path, or even far into the future.

.

At present, if you don’t even know for sure what the day holds, never mind the future….then you can truly believe that the world IS your lobster,

But, if you think otherwise, then what is the point in living your life fully.

.

It is also true that you are giving away your strength to someone else because the world is full of money-making charlatans who could cause untold damage too.

.

I remember a conversation from years ago, while discussing seances etc..

A lady who was visiting an American city on business went to see a fortune teller who had been mentioned to her as being very good.

It was one of those impulses that strike you as a good idea when you are on your own and far from home, and she acted upon it.

.

She was at that time happily married, with a loving husband and a child, and hopes of completing their family with the addition of one more member when the time felt right.

.

The lady she visited, at the top of the stairs, gave the consultation.

.

It resulted in the poor businesswoman only ever having one child.

After all, who could risk having another child join the family, after being solemnly informed that if they did then one of those children would die.

She was told that she would never successfully raise more than one child.

As a result, she felt she could never risk anything happening to the one beloved child she had.

.

Afterwards there was no way to remove the dread from her mind because …what if the reading she was given was true.

.

Better really to live each day of your life as fully and completely as you wish to, and making your decisions as you need to, depending upon what mood and circumstances dictate.

You cannot live happily with such fears.

.

I mean, all of us have to die of something, it is the human condition, but do we really want to know where and when and what, if we do not have to!

.

Just think, even if you were given a list of only wonderful things that were going to happen to you, would it not also remove the basic joy of a life where good things MAY happen at any moment.

I don’t know, but I think that I prefer it this way, when each day may contain a wonderment and the appearance of a sad or scary thing is also a total secret.

.

I suppose that the theory of the future either being totally planned for us no matter what we do, or the opposite theory that we can affect the future with the ripples from our actions in the now, are also best left to work out as life unfolds.

There is always the danger that if we think we know what is in the future then we will strive just that bit less and therefore lose the game.

.

Myself, I try to do my best anyway, and then see what happens, along with all of the excitement of the ride.

.

So, what do you think of it all.

J,
