A closed heart cannot hear the future path calling.

A closed will cannot let go in order to take this future path.

If the liken the Future Self to a seed, the open mind allows it to penetrate our seeing and understanding; the open heart allows it to go deeper into our feeling and connecting and knowing – where it might germinate into possibilities of who we can become and what we can do; and, the open will understands it must let go of the good for the best, otherwise the new possibility with be suffocated before it can grow.
