I am in the mood for some deep and penetrating conversation...are you? Some say that tomorrow is the most important thing in life, it gives you the opportunity to start all over again every day- hopefully you have learned something from yesterday. But you cannot and should not plan the future on the past!
The great Aurelius once said "Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present" Now you know that the future is built in the present with the assistance of weapons of reason. But, what is ‘reason’ and how do you achieve it?
‘Reason’ is to have sufficient ground to explain the facts and habits of the make-up of your present intelligible, by becoming a double agent of your own secretive intelligence. You should be an agent to challenge, question, and assess your ideals, thoughts and beliefs…and at the same time, you should be an agent who is loyal to his convictions and self.
The future then is based on the collection, analysis, creation, dissemination, and use of information in your present time- and the only way to achieve the weapons of reason, even if you fail again and again, is to be ready for a new beginning of facts and be ready to toss aside old habits.
Some say that tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today. I am sure your priorities, preferences and perceptions will change, as you operate on your secretive intelligence. Do not worry what others think or say of you…be true to yourself! Do not be sorry for the things you did…be sorry for the things you should have done and you did not do.
I know you are curious about your future…ah the future, it comes soon enough. If you make a good use of the present time, you do not need to be apprehensive about the future (Latin Proverb).
After changing and rearranging your priorities and challenging your comfort zone- please never settle for a compromise of your reason and secret intelligence just to get by. No matter what path you choose, there is always some one telling you that you are wrong- do not listen. Take the risk to stand between today and tomorrow in the dark- if there is light within you- you will shine!
