I Ching 39 – Halting

Today’s I Ching – 39 – Halting

Water above, Mountain below.

Halting follows Disharmony.

 

Spirit explains: 

Disharmony slows progress but halting, for us, is

Not an acceptable option. We see it as a trap, a lure,

An excuse to give up, and, giving up is not Our Way.

We will never give up.

 

We are moving onward and upward, from the

Foundations of the past toward an as yet unknown

Future. However, the future is not completely

Unknown.

 

A certain five-year-old child seems to know, or

Believe, that he will not be five forever. He seems

To understand that he will be six on his next

Birthday, and then, one year at a time he will grow

To be a man.

 

The Laws of Nature provide us with structure. Life

Experience teaches us understanding. We are

Each individuals developing from a more-or-less

Shared past and moving, growing into a more-or less

Shared future.

 

Destiny gently but firmly requires us to move from

The past and into the future. Free will pampers us

By accepting that we will each grow at our own

Pace and in our own way. But, grow we will.

 

Growth is not an option.
