A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious
mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he
looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on
where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Humph. Adventure.
Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things.
When you get to that mythical time in the future where you start doing and acting for what you really want, guess what?
Yep, it will be you there. The same you as today. With the same beliefs, behaviours and struggles you have now.
If there is something different you want in the future begin it today. Otherwise you’ll find the future is just like today.
(In my head I carry around a mythical Andrew. He’s great. He’s slim, fit, lithe and eats a healthy diet – mostly natural foods. He’s also well organised, running projects properly and walling off writing time to produce a string of new products.
Problem is, he doesn’t exist. He’s a chimera, a shadow, something I comfort myself with as a fantasy future.
The only way to make him exist is to choose fruit for breakfast today rather than a double sausage and egg McMuffin.
Unless I make these choices now, the future I imagine will never exist.
Same for you.)
