Perek Shira: Fig Tree - Opportunity Does Grow on Trees!
I once went to barber and noticed a sign on the wall. It had a list of whole bunch of Mitzvos you can get when going to the barber. More than double digits! Now that was a revelation. But the truth is it's not a revelation at all. Hashem put us on this world to do mitzvos so why would he keep us here even for one extra second bereft of the opportunity to perform them?
For starters there are 6 mitzvos that you can be mikayem every second of your life. Additionally the sefer Chareidim lists mitzvos by part of the body that is used to be mikayem them. He lists 50 mitzvos Aseh and Lo Saaseh Min HaTorah that are just in your heart and another 28 MiDirabanan. Then he goes through mitzvos with the hands, legs, mouth, ears, etc.
In order to really take advantage of the mitzva opportunities you need to know the mitzvos because sadly there are so many things we do that are mitzvos but since we don't have in mind that we are doing for a mitzva its value is lost. If you study the mitzvos and keep your eyes open you will realize that every second of your life there are multiple mitzva opportunities.
The fig tree is unique in that its fruit blossom at different times. The gemara Eiruvin (54a) says that every time you stick your hand into the tree you will find a fig since they are constantly ripening. On the flip side of that, the gemara in Bava Metzia (21b) says that if you don't catch the fruit as soon as it blossoms it will fall from the tree and immediately become inedible. The Fig Tree sings "Notzer Ti'eina Yochal Pirya"; he who keeps his eye on the tree will eat its fruits. Same with the mitzvos. Keep your eyes open because it's a world full of opportunity. But as soon as you take your eye off the ball the opportunity disappears.
