Future

Dear Asha, Ajay, Ravi and Ariana,

Our mind is capable of recalling past events and imagining the future. Specific ways we perform and interpret these mental activities contribute to what we call the “self”. These in turn influence how we behave and what we do. But, future is not completely knowable. Therefore, it is essential to develop the following mental attitudes even as we plan our actions:
Humility
Open mindedness
Prudence
Flexibility
Positive attitude with reasonable hope
Faith, based on reason
Faith in something other than material things of the world
Interconnection with others and with the Universe
