The means is now, and the result is now. There is no future in which the result bears fruit. The result is now, and always is.
"The end justifies the means," is a thoroughly arrogant statement. The results have always been disastrous. In this scenario anything can be justified, and anything justified in this manner will come home to roost.
It seems far more insightful to say that "The means you use become the result." And the result is now, and now, and now. You can't escape the means.
As you go about your day, consider the means. And if love, kindness, and patience, are the means you use, your life will reflect it. Now.
