Spirit shares I Ching Wisdom.
Hexagram 28 – Great Surpassing follows
That makes sense.
What makes sense?
When and if we are well nourished,
the better we are able to develop
our physical potentials.
What about our intellectual,
emotional, and spiritual potentials?
Those, too. If parents have the means
to care for their children
as most surely would if they could,
then each new generation would have
the opportunity to develop beyond
where they might otherwise have gone.
How far back does it go?
What does that mean?
We can only do for our children
and our community what we are
able to do, now.
What if we are unaware of what
we can do for others, or might have
done for ourselves?
We each are responsible for how
we live our lives and the choices
we make, here and now.
Yesterday has gone?
Yes, and tomorrow is not yet here.
So, where does great surpassing
Great surpassing can refer to
the quality of our attitude
in awareness of what was,
what may yet be, and what
opportunities are available
to us, now, and how we
respond to them.
