Wisdom: Bawa Muhaiyaddeen On Delaying Things

Bawa: Do not decide to do things later on, saying, “I’ll do it tomorrow” or “I’ll do it later on.” That is a way of saying you will not do it. It means that you no longer desire to complete the task and it will not be done. Finish each task at each second, on each day. Just complete it in some way. This is how you will see completion in your life. When you say, “Later” or “Tomorrow,” it is the same as saying, “No.” If you do not finish tasks that have to be done each day, it means that you cannot finish them. You are refusing to do them. Your yearning to do them no longer exists. You should understand this. We should understand this. As long as we do not realize this search and strive for it with every breath, we will not know our house, our own state. What kind of a house do we live in now? This can be understood from our qualities, actions, conduct, our inner heart (qalb), and mind. This must be understood.
