The Future is a Specter

Seishin: Is tomorrow real? Is next week a state of mind? Of course it’s important to know how to plan and create helpful narratives of our lives, but what is the relationship between this moment right now and this nebulous, imaginary future? How is it that right here, right now, is the thing that brings forth the future? And how is it that we should practice, knowing this? We must learn to see this clearly, so that we can take compassionate action right in this moment and bring about a better tomorrow.
