A barren fig tree is the symbol of true love and that of an invaluable gift for the possession of which you will have to pay everything you have. A chosen one will give everything for his love so that something barren becomes alive. The invaluable is something that has no price. Only the chosen see the value of the invaluable and all others see only a worthless, useless and barren fig tree, considering the behavior of the chosen one extremely stupid and irrational.
Dropping things before they're done is like having a baby and ending up with a miscarriage. All would be nothing, but it undermines health and leads to infertility. Do you still remember the fate of the barren Fig tree?
Trying to do something faster than necessary is greed. I remind you, there is nothing more dangerous for any business than greed. From the fact that you do not water the plant, it will not grow faster, but only withers.
Promised three years of waiting, plus another year of special love and affection. Remember the Fig tree that was given another chance. The point is that three years is seen, whether in growth or not, if weak the business, in the fourth year it is necessary to strengthen love, if it did not help... put everything on fire.
By the nature of things everything is straight, for they are beautiful, and nothing is crooked, for they are ugly. But Jesus came and brought the hope that the crooked one could straighten, the blind one could see. Even if a crooked fruitless Fig tree is cut down, it is not necessary to burn it in hell, a carpenter can easily make beautiful and useful things out of it.
Nobody throws stones at a barren tree…
And all because …
Nothing to wish... nothing to shoot Down…
Nothing to criticize... nothing to Envy
But the fruit tree stones only to help.
Of stones can be folded around the fence and do not let the goats to the garden.
Love is true resignation because he who is truly in love knows no fear. He who is truly in love will stop at nothing for his love… True love is a Gift for which one will have to sacrifice everything one has to obtain something invisible. Nobody, except for the loving person, understands the value of his love. Others see stupidity, nothingness and losses… In fact, this is the same situation when someone gives all his money, time and property… for what? For a barren fig tree.
There is no need to hurry in fruitfulness. While you learn, you grow like a tree trunk up. It is better to grow taller, and then go horizontal branches. Hurrying, you risk and remain a Bush or dwarf Apple tree.
The most accessible source of pleasure is overcoming obstacles. Overcoming obstacles is pleasant, joyful, fruitful and marks the growth of personality. To such pleasure almost there is no habituation, such pleasure can be stretched for life.
Effective and fruitful will be those actions that you will do to harm the circumstances. You know you can't do it, you know it's wrong and wrong, but you're going to do it because you think it SHOULD be done, even though you know it's going to end badly. There is no hope of success in you, that is, there is, but it is hope against hope.
A crooked man is a crooked tree. A straight man is a straight tree. Angels and demons are the ones who woke up... Demons cut wood for firewood, angels take care of those who bear fruit and make sure that demons do not abuse. The image of Jesus was an image of salvation for sinful souls, a metaphor for the idea that the barren Fig tree has a chance and can be saved from the hyena of fire. Wood is not only firewood, but also beautiful and useful wood products. A sinner can go to heaven if he gives his soul to God, and thus communicates himself to the beauty and benefit of being. By the way, the soul is the body, that is, the wood of the tree.
The fundamental difference between the joy of the mind (virtue) and the pleasures of the body (Vice) is that the pleasures of the body consume energy (time, money, etc.) and no matter how cheap they cost, they consume it irretrievably and fruitlessly. In fact, the pleasure of the body is a radiator that removes excess heat.
The joys of the mind are material and like grains. No matter how expensive these grains initially cost, something always grows out of them, which gives an income of tens and hundreds of times more than invested.
Chronic skepticism is incompatible with growth and fruitfulness. You cannot sow or reap without having faith in what you do. A chronic sceptic is so accustomed to have no faith in anything that, even when dying of hunger, he will not stretch out his hand to take the apple. The skeptic will blab a lot about the apple of sin and about this being an illusion and a metaphor. Skepticism engenders laziness. Where there is no faith, there is fear. In reality, sceptics are just cowards afraid of taking an apple out of fear that something would happen.
