Death and the Future
Our vision can see far into the future and the point where we allow our gaze to fall will influence how we live life. If the future is tomorrow we will live only for today. If our vision focuses on the generations to come after our death, our life will become a path of service to that future generation. If we live only for today, death will arrive and we will feel as though we have achieved nothing. If we live only for the future we will barely appreciate the gift we have been given. Life is a wondrous time and only a broad vision can allow us to set a good pace in how we live it. If we see the future, the present, and the foundation of the past, we can appreciate life, and when death comes we will feel gratitude for the joys and an understanding of the sorrows.
