Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit – 21
Biting Through follows Observing.
Everyone interacts with the world they live in, the world that we
Seem to know we are part of. And, yet, many of us observe
This world as being outside of ourselves. This is an illusion
That we must learn to bite through.
The skin of an apple is often firm and yet, if we bite through
This protective layer we reach the tasty fruit that waits for us,
Just beneath the surface; our reward for the effort taken.
Why do I sometimes feel that I am more a part of the
Outer skin than of the inner reality?
Perhaps we all live on the surface of Life, with some of us
Being more aware than are others of how deep our roots
Reach down and dissolve into Life itself, to become nutrients
For our future.
It sounds deep.
It is deep, and we are part of it.
