Blessings for the Future -- by Lin Hsin-Chen
The roses are in bud, and in the days to come, they pray for themselves and bloom beautifully. They contribute their energy to decorate the world. Some fear that life is short, and soon becomes a thing of the past, like vibrant colors faded and disappeared in a blink of an eye. It reminds us to live in the moment. Cherishing the present is the real possession.
As we are looking forward to the future, we are most afraid of the uncertainty of unknown, and we feel that we are exploring the road in the dark. "Future Images" is something very abstract. If we can predict possible uncertainties in the future, and if we have the courage to take challenges, we can overcome fear. I keep reminding myself about this as I sew the piece stitch by stitch.
