“Sariputra, if there are people who have already made the vow, who now make the vow, or who are about to make the vow, ‘I desire to be born in Amitabha’s country,’ these people, whether born in the past, now being born, or to be born in the future, all will irreversibly attain to anuttarasamyaksambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, all good men and good women, if they are among those who have faith, should make the vow, ‘I will be born in that country.’”

~ Amitabha Sutra

When I obtain the Buddhahood, any being of the boundless and inconceivable Buddha-worlds of the ten quarters whose body if be touched by the rays of my splendour should not make his body and mind gentle and peaceful, in such a state that he is far more sublime than the gods and men, then may I not attain the enlightenment.

Working Our Lives Away

Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be. - Eckhart Tolle

Our jobs involve a lot of problem solving, meeting datelines and objectives; it is a very future oriented thing. We're hired based on what we promise to produce in future, rewarded based on fulfillment of that.

Hence we feel as if our self's well being, happiness is in the future; when the required conditions are met - datelines are met, we receive bonuses, promotion, recognition, etc. This conditions us to believe the future is more important than NOW. Now has become a means towards the future, we don't want now, we want the desired future. This resistance of the Now and Life itself creates endless tension, stress, anxiety, and suffering.

Also look at books of Eckhart Tolle recommended by fellow practitioners.
