Live for the Future
Andrew’s tour of India is underway (September 14th – 23rd), and you can check out his facebook page for further updates as the trip progresses. Below is the final installment of his recent interview with Speaking Tree, one of India’s largest spiritual publications:
Question: Some say live in the present moment. Others say learn from the past and plan for the future. It’s very confusing. What is your advice?
Answer: As a teacher of the ‘new Enlightenment,’ or what I call Evolutionary Enlightenment, I say none of the above. I say live for the future. The future means what hasn’t happened yet. It means what could happen if we really focus all of our attention on that possibility. The past has already happened, so there’s nothing we can do about it. The present is already here, so there is not much we can do about that either. But the future is not yet manifest. The future is something we can consciously create. It’s something that we actually have a great measure of ability to affect and determine.
This new culturally relevant spirituality is all about creating the future in the present moment rather than merely focusing on or being in the present moment or trying to come to terms with what no longer is.
