It’s a source of delight to look back on how far we have come and yet feel a deep sense of humility when we look ahead at how far we still must travel.
I Ching as a Way to Enlightenment
Today’s I Ching – 16 – Delight
Thunder above, Earth below
Delight follows Humility in
The order of the Hexagrams.
To be aware of how far
We have come, and yet, to know there is still
A long way to go, is to feel humility.
We can, Spirit tells me, take delight in how far
We have come, without losing a sense of
Humility when looking ahead.
The message? I ask.
Look back, He tells me, at What you have left,
But not to focus on what you have left,
But to measure how far you have come
Along The Way, along Our Way.
