If there’s one thing in this world that’s worth waiting for, that is the right time.
The Right Time Of Everything
Every holy scripture describes time as the mightiest power of the universe. A power that has the strength to destroy the strongest creatures that breathe on earth, to burn down the memories of history into tiny black particles of ashes, to shred powerful kingdoms into nothingness and to capture brawny brutes and sturdy heroes in its labyrinth and allow them to be forgotten.
Several powerful people, civilizations and animals that once existed on this planet are no longer found because it wiped them off from the face of the earth. Doesn’t it glorify its might? Yes, It does. When it roars loudly, it gives us the lesson that nothing is permanent or eternal. The world will end and only it will survive.
Ages have passed by since humans have tried to win over time. Since Einstein showed the world through his theories that time runs at different speeds in different places( about parallel dimensions), scientists started wondering whether humans could travel through time to the past or future.
They try to acquire the knowledge that can give them the strength to outrun it because if there’s anything in this universe that terrifies them, that is time.
Is Time Really Something To Be Terrified Of?
Time isn’t horrible. It is not our enemy. Time is flexible. It behaves how we ask him to behave. If we focus on positivity, the time will cause us no harm. If we accept the results heartily, it will not give us pain.
But, instead, if our mind is too much concerned about the negative thoughts and unrealistic expectations, every day it will make us feel like we are caged behind bars of possibilities.
Thinking just about the past and future without even glancing at present is what makes people fear time and uncertainty. We become so impatient about our result that we fail to put our efforts into our task. We are so much obsessed with instant things that we find it difficult to just wait for the right time; for the particular hour of judgment that has been decided for us.
Waiting For The Right Time
There is always a right time for everything to happen. Whatever happened today was because it had been decided earlier and the things that will happen tomorrow have already been decided. There is always some good hidden behind the bad days like even in the darkness of the night, the moon shines.
In fact, we can observe the beauty of the silver light of the moon, only because it shines at night. Some things are noticed only when bad times fall upon us. We appreciate happiness when we experience sorrow. That’s the beauty of time.
Even when it doesn’t work in your support, it still gives you something valuable. So, we should have the patience to wait for the morning by looking at the moonlit night and appreciating the bewitching illusion it creates. The flower blooms when the time is right. Forcing the bud to become a flower kills it, ultimately.
So, how should we wait for the right time?
Should we work even if the result is decided?
Yes, we have to. Because completing the task we are assigned is our duty. Also, because, there’s isn’t just one possibility of the future. The future is undefined. Running away from the task isn’t the solution to anything. We have to work hard, but, with patience, for completing our responsibilities and duties. When the time is right, the success would knock our door.
But, until then, we have to work without focussing on our result and make up our mind to accept it. Doing work doesn’t guarantee success, but, being inactive doesn’t gift you happiness, either. “Karma” is our duty and it is the responsibility of the supreme to give us results.
As Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta Quoted,
कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन |
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि ||
( Don’t do work while you are aspiring for results. Doing work is your responsibility, but, you are not entitled to get the results. Also, you cannot be attached to inaction)
