Fear of the Future? Who me?

November 27, 2010

The wisdom of Spotted Eagle is always welcome for me. The re-post today on Steel-toedmoccasin.com is timely on Thanksgiving weekend when I, at least, am a bit confronted with family “tradition”, myths and behaviors. Jennie Marlow writes that we must admit that  “we are resisting what has already been created; there is an uncertainty we cannot accept; and this uncertainty cannot be changed or controlled. We must further admit that the one thing we are most able to change is our thinking. If we do not start here, addressing the mythology of the Mind, then what we can and should do in the present moment will be hidden from us.”

Here is what Spotted Eagle says:

The Gifts of a Willing Heart

April 30th, 2010 by jenniemarlow

“Many of you have a habit of allowing your Mind to drag you off into its fearful imaginings about the future. Notice that you are very willing to believe in the terrors you imagine even though most of them never come to pass. Notice that the more traumatic your early life was, the more you believe in a terrible future. Depending upon your personality, you will either believe that you can control the future, or believe that the future will overwhelm you. Notice that this story of what will happen is your personal mythology, based on your conditioning, your history and your beliefs. Notice that it has nothing to do with your possibilities to experience essence in the now.”
