“It is perfectly fine to make plans for the future, yet each individual should live day by day, without worrying about the outcome of those plans.
“The physical body can only react in the present moment. Worrying about future events, or dwelling upon past unfavorable situations, only confuses the body’s mechanisms, and undermines their precise activity in the present moment.
“I am not saying that anyone should pretend that unfavorable circumstances do not sometimes exist, or that they may not be encountered in the past, present, or future.
“It is also true, however, that advantageous events occur with a far greater frequency than do negative ones–otherwise the world that you know simply would not exist. It would have disappeared in the throes of destruction or calamity.
“In a basic way, it is against nature’s purposes to contemplate a dire future, for all of nature operates on the premise that the future is assured. Nature is everywhere filled with promise–not only the promise of mere survival, but the promise of beauty and fulfillment.
“That keen sense of promise is innate within each portion of the body. It triggers the genes and chromosomes into their proper activity, and it promotes feelings of optimism, exuberance, and strength. …
“Live each day as fully and joyfully as possible. Imagine the best possible results of any plans or projects. Above all, do not concentrate upon past unfavorable events, or imagined future ones.”
