When I see sunsets, when I see the ocean, a feeling of comfort in the future begins in the center of my core. I'm not calling this feeling 'hope', just a bit of calm in the raging fear of what just might be.
There are different types of hope: hope someone you love beats cancer, or, hope that humans will rectify environmental devastation. Hope has to do with wishes and dreams. wants and likes. You can hope for a raise, a new job, a healthy baby, a new life, but hope is like prayer. It does no good unless action is instituted, and carried out.
I love this quote:
“Hope is what keeps you going, but hope keeps you focused on the future, and this continued focus perpetuates your denial of the Now and therefore your unhappiness.” Eckhart Tolle
