Dumbledore’s Right

Whenever I try to explain why I can’t predict the future using the Akashic Records, I always struggle to explain very clearly how very complex the very idea of the future can be. Luckily, someone else has found an elegant way to express this for me:  
“The consequences of our actions are so complicated, so diverse, that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed.”

-- Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The future always appears as a set of possibilities and probabilities. Much can be seen, but nothing can be predicted until the very moment it occurs. This is the only way it can be if we have free will. And, based on absolutely everything I have ever seen in the Akashic Records, we do indeed have free will.

Sometimes I wish someone could predict the future. It doesn’t have to be me. It could be anyone, as long as they could tell me exactly what to expect and how to plan for it. Especially these days when so much is changing and so much is at stake.

But, when I really think about it, I’m grateful the future cannot be predicted. I am glad that what is coming is continually being rewritten according to our choices and intentions. This means I still have the honor of creating an effect in the world around me, and so do you!

    funny i came upon this. it's actually just what i needed to hear. so thanks. i tend to go towards a desperate feeling place, thinking that someone out there can certianly predict what is going to happen in the next years…. but my gut keeps telling me otherwise. that it's too beautiful a concept that nobody really knows what's to come. that it feels organic and natural that we are thereby allowed to rest in the present.
