Leap Greetings!,

"Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery.  Today is a gift.  That's why they call it the present." Ancient Wisdom

"Leap and the net will appear." John Burroughs

When we realize that the only moment that exists is the present moment, we take a huge leap into personal and planetary healing. 
If we can spend our present moments taking actions that align future moments with our highest intentions, we will move from unconsciously manifesting our fears into living a life that we consciously dream. 

Most of us have a genetic disease called "catastraphobia."  This leads us to unintentionally project our worst fears into the future.  But, acting from fear is a recipe for disaster.  Our history is peppered with disasters and mistakes.  Both history books and psychoanalysis perpetuate the belief that we can learn from the past and get it right. The truth is that only when we are free from fear, can we act with clarity and common sense in the moment. 
The truth about the future is that we cannot know what is going to happen.  But, we do know that our thoughts and intentions manifest.
So, how can we shift our fear-based genetic disposition to one of confidence and trust without feeling that we are going to be dangerously unprepared for the future?  One way is to practice detachment.
This does not mean that we do not care what happens, but that we prepare, practice and then - let go - and allow the outcome to be what it is. This enables us to continue to act with clarity and confidence and in harmony with our highest intentions in each successive moment. 
Letting go of what we know and moving into new territory can be scary.  Trusting the process of life and knowing we are protected enables us to flow with courage and confidence.  If we trust, our fear automatically diminishes.  We are able to release our expectations in the knowledge that all is well.  As we detach from the outcome, we relax and appreciate what is.  This creates an invisible ladder - our next step appears as we extend our foot.
Blessings and Light,
