Why Wait?

Why should a human being with all its capacities abandon active agency, to let other powers determine what happens? If we are able to do so much for ourselves why do we put ourselves in passive positions in the making of our own destiny? Why do we endure the pains of waiting and why do we even hope that it can be ended?

Waiting is difficult to some extent but it is even harder to accept the impossibility of perfect happiness, if we are aware of our imperfect souls and its limitations. All we can do is sit around, sleep it off, distract ourselves and kill time - until something or someone presents us with our object that we cannot create for ourselves, which is perfect because it is mysterious, and beautiful because it is given.
