895. The Case for Processing the Future
Commonly, a person perceives the past as unchangeable but knowable, and the future as changeable but not knowable.
But the immediate future will be the past in a very short time. And the present time was the future of yesterday. Future changes constantly into the presence and from there into the past.
As the reader is perceiving the words within this paragraph, the remainder of the same will be in the near future. By the end of this paragraph the reading of the first sentence is already a thing of the past.
It makes a lot of sense to process the future directly. Actually, in a certain sense, this makes much more sense than processing the past or present time.
But current processing, with few exceptions, addresses the past and only sometimes and often rather indirectly the present time.
Now, in theory, every condition that was handled should prevent any reoccurence in the future and the paradigm of digging in the past to resolve present-time problems seemed therefore sufficient.
There are several problems with this paradigm,
however, and it may be time to reconsider it in its basic premises:
A successful erasure of such a chain and its initial occurrence (often called the 'basic' on the chain), would mean that there is no 'charge' in this area left.
Unless the actual choice-making, such as a decision for the future or a fixed evaluation, is being uncovered, there is nothing that would prevent a Being to repeat its past mistake. In the contrary: now that there is no charge left, the Being has no reminder mechanism in place to alert him as soon as a similar condition arises again.
The recognition of fixed evaluations and rigid decisions, however, is clearly bound to the limits of the current case level at the time of the process. In other words, any survey of these evaluations and decisions can never be exhaustive.
These few reasons out of many should be strong enough to prompt a rethinking of the process of processing the past.
Now, for most people it seems 'unthinkable' at first to access a potential future incident.
In this case, it helps to consider that for the purposes of spiritual progress it really *does not matter* whether something has 'really' happened and, likewise, whether something will 'really' happen in the future.
If there is a picture in the human mind that contains material that would prompt the person to re-act in an unfavorable way, then there is such a picture in the mind. That's all there is to it.
In short, it doesn't matter if a person really 'had a past life' or not - as long as there is a picture in the person's mind that is predetermining the way the person is thinking, there is ample reason to do something about it.
Similarly, if there is a picture of a future incident in the mind of a person, it seems advisable to address such a picture now before circumstances in the future can trigger the same.
It appears that any known process can be run from
a viewpoint in the future, most certainly the following:
As another incentive, processing of the future has a much higher 'instant gratification factor' than processing of the past. In an optimum handling, a past incident, as traumatic as it may have been, will become a non-issue, shifting
completely out of sight of the processee after the session.
This circumstance has been a 'problem' of sorts for processing efforts. The 'client', being relieved of a problem completely, may not realize just how much better off s/he is now, and may go about daily life without displaying any signs of gratitude or any particular appreciation of the assistance that was rendered.
Processing of the future affects things to come in the immediate or near future and may thus provide further incentives down the road to push ahead.
In any case, processing the future widens the
focus of attention called 'now' to include a larger picture.
The ideal can be seen as encompassing all past and all possible futures into the 'now'.
The idea to process the future is not new as such. Many processors are already taking advantage of this approach and its benefits have already been pointed out in various places throughout the 'Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape From This Universe'.
The pitch here is the proposal to abandon the focus on 'processing of the past' altogether and start out with the future to begin with. Again, both past AND present time events are necessarily 'earlier similars' to future events.
It is hoped that these thoughts will soon help you yesterday!
