Acting as if you’re already there

On Being’s Krista Tippett’s interview with the late John Lewis included this exchange on “living as if” your possibility is already reality (excerpt):
Lewis: But later I discovered, I guess, that you have to have this sense of faith that what you’re moving toward is already done. It’s already happened.
. . .
It’s the power to believe that you can see, that you visualize, that sense of community, that sense of family, that sense of one house.
. . .
And you live that you’re already there, that you’re already in that community, part of that sense of one family, one house. If you visualize it, if you can even have faith that it’s there, for you it is already there.
