I’m walking down the sidewalk to a bus stop ten blocks away. I walk directly there, observing all I can see along the way. I will sit and wait for the bus nine minutes, thinking about my walk there. The bus ride takes eight minutes. I am the first one off the bus and as I step to the curb I look at my watch, it reads 12:34:56. Now let’s just change a few details. I’m walking down the sidewalk to a bus stop ten blocks away. I walk directly to the third block, observing all I can see along the way. I stop dead in my tracks and count to twenty-six as I look all around myself. Then continue to walk to the ninth block, at which point I turn and look behind myself, for thirty-two seconds, recollecting all I saw as I walked to this point. I then continue to walk to the bus bench. As I walk that last block I am reflecting on the previous nine and still observing the world around me. I will sit and wait for the bus less then eight minutes. The bus ride will take eight minutes. I exit the bus first and as I step to the curb I look at my watch, it reads 12:34:56. I have not changed my time line between these two scenarios. But now, because I have stopped and counted and looked behind myself, I will now recall observing a completely different world then if I hadn’t stopped. Different cars, people, sounds, and yes, even different reflections in and of the world around myself. As in life, you can only change what you are going to look back on, but no matter what you do in the future, you cannot change your destiny.
