Work Not For The Fruit

The inherent uncertainty of the future excites as it frightens, promises as it takes away, and paints dreams as it dashes hope. Our efforts may blossom or flounder, but no matter–there’s another day. We plan until God is out of breath from laughing and then launch into action, knowing only that change is unavoidable. Clinging to this thread, we shape our perception of the world; longing for the power of foresight, we imagine patterns, assume linearity, and assign causation. And then one day, if we’re lucky, we realize that striving has overpowered doing, and allow initiative to rescue us from expectation and return us to life.
