Written by Tobi Warzinek

Can meditation help us to know our future? In this article I will introduce you the art that will reveal the unknown and make it known right away. Do you want to learn how to know your future? I will show you exactly how to see into the great mystery of your future. Keep reading…

Is the Future Your Best Friend?

There’s much that can be said about the future. Hopes, anticipations, fears, worries are mostly based on an idea of some sort of future waiting for us “out there”. The future appears to be a very real thing, that can be discovered, seen or experienced in this present moment. Therefore many people loose their head about not being able to know what’s going to happen to them and where life will lead them.

As a result we loose sleep over the meeting which is supposed to happen tomorrow and fight with relatives about the future of our country. To some people, the future is a very serious motivator. It motivates us to seek happiness and solve problems. In short: We really believe that there’s a substantial thing such as the future which can be changed in order to find the “happy end” of our personal story… which is existing as a thought.
Ah, “Tomorrow” – the wonderful tranquilizer that keeps us in this delicious haze of perpetual mental dissatisfaction.

Does More Future = More Happiness?

Always remember that paradise, salvation, happiness, solutions and all the good stuff is going to happen – it will! Never loose your hope as the day will come when everyone is riding a vegan unicorn into a united divine world in which there’s no anger, no pollution and everyone continually loves each other. The more time we spend thinking about the future, the more we are missing out on actual lifetime which is passing right in this moment.

If you want to stay unfulfilled, ignore the present moment and join the frantic chase for more. This is my secret tip! (Psssst!) Contentment is for losers without ambition, right? Are you a looser? Well, I didn’t think so! So let’s get out there together and change the world. I am sure if we all believe in the change it will happen one day and all will be good! Say it with me:” I fully trust that I am going to have a great life tomorrow, next month, next year!”

How to Know Your Future

You have been tense in your seat because you would like to know how it’s all going to come down, right? Sorry I kept you waiting there. I will now reveal the secret of your personal story’s end, which is especially relevant. For those who don’t like spoilers, watch out! I am rubbing my third eye right now… sensing, feeling your future… Ahhhh, there it is! I have seen your truth, and it’s funny as we actually share the same truth! Coincidence?!

  1. You will experience pain followed by pleasure
  2. The pleasure will then follow the pain again
  3. You will die

There, that’s how to know your future! It’s actually all you ever need to know concerning your future. Everything else is uncertain, not sure, and it won’t last.

The Secret to a Better Life

It would be a bit depressing to end our exploration into the future at this point. But there are good news! Seeing what we can really expect from the future, we will look for happiness elsewhere. That does not mean to abandon goals or ambitions. It simply means that we don’t hope to find fulfillment or lasting happiness in the future anymore – that’s all. Instead we can use our time wisely and find more happiness by relaxing and releasing tension right now.

Once you let go, there’s happiness. You are lightening up, become unburdened and more open. If you are living your life like this, your future will come from your present state of release and happiness. Instead of being born out of fears, hopes, worries and tension, your future will come out of a relaxed and happy present state. If every human being would make knowing life in this moment a priority over anticipating life in the next moment, we could probably solve a lot of problems within our human hearts in this human world… soon 😉

  1. Hi Tobi,

    At home alone right now whilst my wife is away for a couple of weeks, and have been making best use of the time to do some meditation and wash away the week of work and life, and saw your post just now so wanted to share here.

    I can relate to this desire to know the future or live by the fear of the needs of the future to get us to a place in the future that will take away some of the fears or pressures put upon us by others, our boss, the current world wide financial pressures but mainly by ourselves! If we dont do all of these things we will not fit in or survive and then our plans of the future will vanish and I cant take that uncertainty! Sound familiar?

    The more I see myself doing this, looking to the future and acting out on it here and now, in a state of fear and worry, I find myself, or seeing it happen, the pain and suffering I cause in other peoples daily lives, and my own, and quickly feel suffering myself and say thats not me! Its true, its not me! It’s my mind and thoughts, and had a big breakthrough on this only this week, yesterday in fact! Blaming others for not doing things that I expected or could be done, and if they dont, then we will all be in trouble by the boss for not meeting deadlines, and we may lose our jobs – Seriously! How crazy is that! When I began more and more to know that it was not me, I felt initial sadness that I had hurt others, then believed it was not me but my thoughts, and then there was a need to let it go and move on with a peaceful heart and live today with others in the moment from my heart! And you know what! When I did this, in my car with one of my staff members, me being calm in my heart completely calmed down the whole situation and the other person became soft and relaxed and able to talk to me without being upset and angry…….and I knew it! It felt good for both and then the feeling passed and we moved on with open hearts! His words to me!

    I’m rambling here, but suppose what I am saying is that it’s true what you say Tobi, making decisions and living in the moment without the fear of the future, does lead to better decisions aligned to your present moment of awareness and being! The more I do this, the more I see things changing around me to support those ways that I have been believing in. Having faith that being here and now and knowing what is in your heart is good, can lead to more awareness and relief. I certainly felt that relief over the last couple of days and today whilst walking through the shopping mall being here!

    That feeling of relief and peace, does feel good! (although we know it wont last! ;-))


  2. That is a great story Lee. Most of us have concerns about work and how a situation will turn out in the future. For example, I have a customer who is “misbehaving” and I am concerned about how it will turn out. In actual fact, it doesn’t matter at all how it turns out. I know intellectually that it won’t affect me in any meaningful way whatsoever. So why keep turning it over in my mind?

    I have asked others whether they are able to simply let thoughts like these pass them by, and people seem to find it very difficult to do that.

    So, what I’m wondering is what techniques people have for not interacting with troublesome (or indeed positive) thoughts about the future. Tobi, any thoughts?
