“Wishes are recollections coming from the future.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
My girlfriend sent that quote to me yesterday. She said she thought I would like it. She was right.
It makes me smile.
I’m a ‘what if…’ kinda human. I like to play that game. And I especially like to play it with thoughts like this. So:
What if wishes were recollections coming from the future?
How that change the way you think of your wishes? How would that change the way you relate to them? Stop and think about it. Play the game. It is a totally different tenor of dreaming.
Inhabiting a world wherein a wish is a recollection from the future incites a totally different backdrop against which you wish your wish. Try it. Play with it. Take it like a pill, once a day, or a like a green juice – it’s really healthy. Especially for your ability to dream (creativity and imagination included), but no less so – or maybe because of this, also for your heart and your life.
