Viewing the Future
By Steve Goodier

When Jeanne Calment turned 120 years old, she was asked what her view of the future was. "Very brief," she responded.

Donít you wish the future were clear? It is usually hazy, at best. A lonely frog called a psychic hotline. "You will meet a beautiful young woman who will want to learn all about you," the psychic advisor told him.

"Where will I meet her?" he asked. "Down by the old mill stream?"

"No," she said. "In biology class."

I received a postcard from a psychic advisor once. It said that if I call a 900 number, she would lead me through a hazy future to clarity and happiness. That sounded great! But when I turned the card over I noticed that it was addressed to the wrong house. We had moved from that old address several months earlier.

I thought that perhaps she was better with the future than the present. But I couldn't help but wonder, if she doesn't even know where I am, how can she know where I am going?

I believe it was Mahatma Gandhi who said so well, "The future depends on what we do in the present." And Thomas Carlyle put it like this: "Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand." What I do today will shape what tomorrow looks like.

I don't need a crystal ball - I only need to live well now. My future will take care of itself.
