‘When a sense of dissatisfaction persists, that means it was placed there by God for one reason only: you need to change everything and move forward’*
‘[I]t is essential to put yourself into the unconditional service of the future possibility that is wanting to emerge. Viewed from this angle, presencing is about a dialogue with the future possibility that wants to emerge.’**
We use imagination to open up future possibilities: ‘The poet “places himself where the future becomes present.”‘^
Then we act upon what we imagine. Steven Covey referred to imagining something as being the first creation, to make it happen, the second.^^
When we believe and act the future seems to open up for us, and something happens inside of us: ‘The willingness to show up changes us.’*^ When we do not believe, meaning we are unable to act, the future remains closed.
Moving with our imaginations will bring us to new days of possibility.
