#655 Do you want to know your future?...



Now that we no longer have the Mayan calendar or its expiration to worry about, how are you going to know what predictions to follow now? What if the best predictor of your future is actually YOU? Would you really want to know the future? To know I believe comes with a price...

Here are 3 reasons why we should never know the future.

1.   Not knowing takes the pressure off - When we think we should know, we get stressed out when we don’t know things. But when we see that not knowing is our natural state, we can actually open into that, into a state of curious detachment, of childlike wonder. What’s going to happen next? Will it be a pleasant surprise, a learning opportunity, or both? We can see that, in a sense, we can’t know anything. We’ve never known anything. So when the time comes to make a decision, we just give it our best shot. And we know that we can always adjust if we need to.

2.   Not knowing fosters learning - Would you still be in your current job? Would you have stayed if you had known the outcome?  I think we can all point to bad experiences that we would not have chosen—a difficult job, the death of someone close to us, struggling with a health issue... yet most of our growth comes from pain. I’ve seen paraplegics and cancer victims smile as they relate the growth that has come from their condition, insisting they wouldn’t have things any other way. Often we only recognize in retrospect how valuable an experience has been. 

3.   Not knowing brings the joy of surprise - Of course we don’t want to know when bad stuff is going to happen. But what about the surprise call from a friend? What about the windfall you didn’t know was coming? What about the laughter of a child or yet the birth of your child, nieces, nephew. A lot of the joy in life comes from surprises, and knowing exactly what’s coming would take all of that away…

Let’s face it, not knowing is the natural state of things. When we want to know things that we can’t know (like the future, or the right course of action), all we create is frustration for ourselves. Just being yourself and taking it day by day is the best path to take.
