When we are hungry, we eat food to satisfy our hunger! It takes about two hours for the food in the mouth to go to the stomach, get digested and yield strength and nourishment to the body. Similarly, there may be a time gap between actions and their consequences. A seed does not become a tree as soon as you sow it. The seed first germinates, becomes a sapling, and then grows into a tree in due course of time. The entire tree is within a tiny seed. You only see the seed, not the entire tree hidden in it. Similarly, you must remember that your future is contained in the actions performed by you in the present. You imagine your future and wait for it. There is no need to wait for it because your future lies in your present! Your present thoughts, words and deeds determine your future. Therefore make the present sacred, sublime, and purposeful.
