The present, added on to some period of time-becomes future. The present plus time is the future. So our present work plus the time in which we do and achieve things together becomes the future world.

Think big, act wisely, show results
We are all faced with various problems in life. At the individual level, there may be problems related to health, emotions, relationships, marriage, children, career, coping with death, and so on. At the national level, there are problems of poverty, unemployment, social unrest, illiteracy, corruption, etc. These problems often bring us sorrow and pain. Yet, if we analyse them honestly we will find that their root cause is almost entirely a lack of proper thinking and acting.
You are responsible for the future of the country
A talk by Swami Chinmayananda to the youth wing of Chinmaya Mission (CHYK).
Unless the youth of a country is trained to live vitally the culture of the country, they will never be able to appreciate the cultures of the world. Especially, in these days when almost every educated man has become a world - trotter, it is necessary that everyone has a certain amount of his own cultural beauty within himself so that he may absorb the best from around him.
