You think the past is behind you and the future is ahead. You think the movement is from the past to the future. But I tell you that time is like a drop, the ripples on the water diverge and fade. Both the future and the past grow out of the present.
In fact, the future begets the past, and we must carefully listen to the whispers of the future, trying to hear his call and follow him. Because if we ignore the call of the future, we will come to a place where there is no place for us at all.
In fact, cause and effect are one and the same. Things desire to be and therefore create their own causes. It's like casting. The investigation looks to the past and pokes a finger at everyone it likes.
To overcome impatience, we must realize that we live from the future to the past. How can you hurry back? Everything has long been accomplished, there is no reason to worry, you can safely do your job.
