Henry David Thoreau said, "Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the the life you imagined."
So perhaps, if I were to look into my crystal ball I'd see what I wanted to see, rather than imagine what might be. It is then not about asking questions, but presenting answers, and living as though they are becoming.
I have to agree with Russell Brand, with his words, "People don't realize that the future is just now, but later."
It is bundling up all my energy and compacting it into now. Filling my lungs with the ghosts of yesterday, and breathing out souls of today. Not depending on what if's.
