*Part of Bernie's teachings was to be in the present moment. He would often ask, “right now, what is not perfect.” In the present moment everything is perfect. Nothing bad is happening now as you read this poem. It is possible something may happen, but this is all an imagination of the future not a real future which can only be experienced when it becomes the present moment. Right now everything is fine. So in my reading of this the future never happens because you move from one present moment to the next.
Bernie capitalized The and spelled future as future.
