There is No Promised Future

We live in a delusion of a promised future, there is no promised future to cash in because future never promises. It is just a mirage that we fabricate to allow us to stretch the present moment. It is an imagined safety net to shield the genuine existential fear. We tend to take the present for granted and assume that tomorrow will always come.
