The World is three days:
As for yesterday, it has vanished,
along with all that was in it.
As for tomorrow, you may never see it.
As for today, it is yours, so work in it.
The nightmares of the past, the only today and the unseen dreams of future have been each covered in turn.
The likeness of these is that of a leaf upon a tree.
The past is like a dried leaf; it once grew green, once revealed its Autumn gold and is now shrivelled and dry. Nothing can bring back the gold or the green and nor will it ever fall again.
Today is like a lush green leaf; full of potential and vigour- but it is destined to fall in its Autumn gold and become shrivelled.
The future is like a seed; nobody can know whether a great oak lies inside or when the seeding might emerge if indeed it will.
The above quote summarises and concludes the series eloquently. Today is ours, so let us work.
Yesterday – Today -Tomorrow
