Life is here but where are you? You say you are living in a hope to be happy sometime in future. But haven’t your experiences by now taught you that this shall never become a reality or else you would have found your happiness !
You are naive and inexperienced, yet to mature in the fire of life for some more time so that you can emerge out refined and polished. There is still time for you to understand the insignificance of the desire to find happiness tomorrow because there is pain today; still time for the seed of truth to sprout in you.
Dream is always about something which is not, something that you desire to have but do not have. Your today is deprived of happiness which is why you are dreaming to find it tomorrow. Your present is gloomy and to divert your mind you turn around and fix your gaze towards the future with a hope. This is what you did yesterday and this is what you are doing today. Yesterday, which was then today, you had dreamt of finding pleasure tomorrow and today again you are dreaming of finding happiness tomorrow which will then be today. Postponing happiness for tomorrow is becoming your habit, your nature.
A very important point to understand is that a joyless today is incapable of creating a joyful tomorrow. Time is created within you. It does not come from anywhere outside. Tomorrow is born out of the womb of today. The way you are living your today will create your tomorrow.
Happiness will not emerge from mere desire or dreams . It will emerge from reality. Just as a healthy baby growing in the womb of an unhealthy mother is only a potential reality, similarly expecting a happy tomorrow from a miserable today is like building castles in the air. If your present is not worth living then tomorrow too will be worthless exactly like your present. So live today, live now and your tomorrow will be transformed.
Remember, present is the only truth. Everything else is an illusion. The mathematics of existence is plain and simple. Tears today, laughter tomorrow; pain today, pleasure tomorrow will only steal away the opportunity called ‘life’. Whether worthy or not, living in the present is the only solution. So stop living in the illusion of tomorrow.
Time is a gift given to us from God. Do not let this moment pass away just like that. There is no greater sin than to waste the precious today. All this while you have been postponing life; from childhood to youth, from youth to old and from the old to the next birth. For a happy and joyful tomorrow lay the foundation of joy today for ‘Life is here, Life is now’.
