“Be not hasty and rushed for things that have yet not come to pass.
Do you think that it is wise to pick fruits before they become ripe?
Tomorrow is non-existent, having no reality today, so why should you busy yourself with it? Why should you have apprehension about future disasters? Why should you be engrossed by their thoughts, especially since you do not know whether you will even see tomorrow?
The important thing to know is the tomorrow is from the world of the unseen, a bridge that we do not cross until it comes.”
Tomorrow is unseen so do not be obsessed by its dreams. Not only is it unseen, it is also unknown. The passage above poses many timely questions. The future is questionable. So when you look forward remember this: otherwise we will be lost in a tomorrow, that may never come, neglecting your today.
Do not be fearful of poverty, hunger, disease, disaster or what the coming year will bring- harvest the fruits of today and pick the fruits of tomorrow when they ripen.
The next post will conclude the series and will consider bringing the past, present and future together as our reality.
