Anyone knows how the future will be like? Will there be cars flying around like we always watch in movies... or will they be robots serving us from head to toe?
Let’s not talk about 10 or 20 years in the future. What about the not so distance future? I'm talking about us. Will we be the person that we hope we would be? Will our dreams and desires be achieved then? The dreams that we dream today, will it be materialized in the not so distant future? When we see our future selves, will be like what we see? Or will we turn into somebody that we hate now?
Do you ever think about these questions?
I went to an exchange training meet recently with a group of students organized by Soka Gakkai
I really felt the profound meaning of this. Here we are actually writing to the future us. What if at that moment the future you is having some sort of big problem and is contemplating to give up life? What can you write at this moment to encourage the future you to never give up hope? To remind the future you how vibrant, how full of hope you are right now and never forget that feeling?
Am I confusing you? I think I am...
My point is, can you ensure that you turned out the person that you always wish you would be? Moral and integrity wise. Or will you be somebody you hate?
Can you remind the future you how courageous and compassionate you were?
To remind the future you to continue to chase whatever dreams that you made then? To never give up?
I stumbled upon a site, FutureMe.org, you write an e-mail to the future you and they will sent it to you at any date in the future. Minimum one year from now.
Now... What will you write?
I really think this site is very interesting. I just hope that when the time comes for my e-mail to be sent back to me, the site is still working! =)
