Working with the Future Beyond Hope and Fear

Accept and explore feelings to recognize your calm center

The feelings of tension, deep sadness, anxiety, and/or anger that come up when thinking about the future are symptoms of fear. Accept and explore them to recognize your calm center, beyond hope and fear. From there you can proactively do what you can do to cut the roots of fear and create the kind of future you want.
Fear of the Future
Someone has come for advice on two issues. 
It seems that many of us, at some point, confront the fear of loss of control and of a terrible future.  These two are closely linked. No one controls the future and anxiety arises when expectations are that the future will be unpleasant.
The future may be minutes or years away. The anxiety may be triggered by an unexpected call from partner, boss or client, or by contemplating old age, sickness, and death.
