Delight follows Humility.
Delight is a spontaneous feeling of personal pleasure; a high point,
Not designed to last and, as a high note, must be released.
Humility expresses the acceptance of the unsustainability of
Could a low note also be such an extreme?
We grow and reach up, or we do not.
It’s as simple as that.
Waiting follows Immaturity in the order of the Hexagrams.
Immaturity doesn’t last forever. We learn and grown,
Each in our own time and in our own way.
Waiting until we are more prepared to face
Whatever challenges Life presents us with,
We must live each day as we now are.
We develop maturity with intention and practice,
Not by waiting.
Today’s I Ching – 60 – Discipline
Water above, Lake below.
Discipline follows Dispersal.
Water above a lake suggests flooding. The lake can only hold
as much as it can hold before dispersing the excess water.
Societies have learned from nature and build barriers to
Protect themselves from flooding.
Rules of Law serve the same purpose as flood control.
It’s called crowd control. However, for a society to survive
And thrive, individuals must learn to control their own
Desire for excess. We each need to learn how to limit
How do we grow?
