This is a curious daily post, and one I feel compelled to respond to:
I know this is a fictitious post, but I would like to get philosophical for a moment.
I believe that we are the creators of our own destiny. We make our future by living in the present moment, and making the most of the opportunities that are presented to us. Where some people come unstuck with this, is by dwelling too much in the past, or in fact the future, therefore not even noticing what is going on right now.
There is an old saying that talks about how we are always looking for happiness, but often don’t notice that we already have it, in the things we have today, right under our noses. This is a little bit the same.
If you are worried about what is going to happen in the future, you are not living life to the full and making the most of NOW. Perhaps you should read Eckhart Tolle’s book, if this sounds like you.
So, back to the original question, would I use the power if I had it? No i most definitely would not, because I would be too busy enjoying life right NOW. I will find out what the future holds when it arrives. until then, I don’t need to know.
Life is already far too short, why waste it any more?
