People always look up to the planets and stars and such as if they'll see
something more than
just clouds and stars and what is actually visible.
Heaven is said to be towards the sky, but it's not like you can see it.
He's saying to not
waste your time with keeping your head in the clouds, and dwelling on
thoughts of
heaven and the future because there's simply no point in it. You'll never
be able to see heaven
or anything beyond, or see into the future, until it's actually your time
to do, or until the future actually becomes present, so why waste time
trying to predict the future, or find heaven?
Live your life for today, and don't look towards the future, for you have
a long time to live before you'll find out what lies beyond death.
