What do you think is upcoming in the future? Do you see a happy or challenging future for yourself personally? Do you imagine that things will change for you in the days to come? How about for the world?

I see my own future personally being both challenging and happy... like more "good" things happening that will challenge me. However for the world, it seems like it will be the same, but more "challenging" first... like a bulldozer making way for good things for the world at large.

What do you think?

Happy and challenging was my thought too. In that order.

I think a lot of people who did not believe they did before, are going to need a lot of help and guidance. I was talking to a friend last night about the Siblinghood of Humanity (doesn't roll off the tongue like brotherhood of man, he said, but the former is twice as encompassing Smile ) and we were tossing ideas of what that might be like. One thing we agreed is that neither of us would function very well in our own ideals of society!

Yeah to the "bulldozing," absolutely. I think there's going to be a lot of accepting of things people in general have been walling off within themselves. Another thing we discussed was how in the past, there seemed to be a sense of duty (specifically speaking careers, but applicable to other things) which has completely fallen by the wayside. In some ways it seemed based in ideology, which is not actual reality, but in others it truly is everyone out for themselves now, where it wasn't before. There's a mentality prevailing that it is a noble thing to save one at the expense of many, and that I think (hope, pray) will be revealed as the wantonly destructive notion it is.

I think, as more and more basic amenities are taken away (which seems to be happening already) people will realize the days of the "lone wolf king of the mountain" are over, and how much more in their own best interest it is to benefit others as they take care of themselves. People seem to have held this mindset in the past, but generally simply seemed to have forgotten how. With societal pressure shifting from "help yourself" to "help us," I hope it'll be pretty easy to make that switch.

I do agree with the bulldozing and the concept that for the world at large it will be challenging, changing, upheaval and then ultimately filled with more happiness.

However, for myself at least, I don't see or get a sense of being challenging and happy...... challenging yes, but as for how I will feel or exist, I just don't know. I hope for happiness, I almost get a sense of loss. But as with much in the future, it is hidden from me and I have no idea. This is the first time for years that I've not had a sense of what will be for myself.

I'm more at peace than I have ever been. I'm not afraid of the future; I'm not afraid of the past. Okay, maybe I am a little scared of the now but that's all the better isn't it
