Spirit’s I Ching Wisdom
6 – Contention
Contention requires differences of opinion.
Since everyone experiences Life from a unique perspective, differences in what and how anyone views whatever situation must necessarily be different or at least seem to be so.
That would explain …
It does explain …
But, explanation alone does not resolve the problem of different perspectives.
There is no essential problem with differences of perspective. It is as it is.
Then how to explain and resolve contention?
Contention is refusal to accept, or denial of the reality that any particular perspective can ever only be one of countless possible perspectives.
Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit.
Reduction follows Solution.
Solution expresses an ending of struggle. There is a way out.
A light turns on. A puzzle has been solved. Finding a solution
reduces built-up stress, at least temporarily.
Why only temporarily?
Struggle is necessary for growth and strengthens self-confidence.
We learn through experience that we can find a solution to
Whatever challenges Life presents us with.
Is it a game?
Yes, and the game is a gift of Life.
Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit
Immaturity follows Difficulty
By facing difficulties in our lives, and we all do,
How we cope will or will not develop maturity.
An immature person will find excuses for
Difficulties and remain immature.
I have a problem with that idea.
You will always have a problem with some ideas.
Yes, and that is a gift of Life.
