Well yes this is the real deal steal. Live for the future! What does it mean anyway?
One is a spiritual being than a material being. Our mind is such a powerful instrument that it can take us to places where we have never been ever, it can meet people whom we have never met, it can generate uncountable thoughts in a given second which is called mind-boggling, and much more.
The solution to get rid of current suffering is to live for the future. Enforcing thoughts of future such as meeting with someone special, finalizing a business deal and making big profits, raising kids etc during any emotional suffering removes suffering.
