Awareness of Reality is Progress

Spirit reads I Ching 53 – Gradual Progress.

 

Gradual Progress develops from Mountain (53) and moves toward

Marrying (54).

 

Spirit explains:  Mountains can seem to be as barriers, challenges,

Or as just part of the environment. They can be as beauty, in the eye

Of the beholder, and a pleasure to climb, or as an obstruction

To ignore, if possible.

 

How we see anything or anyone determines, or at least influences,

To some extent, our relationship with it or with them.

 

Awareness of this reality is progress along the way of enlightenment.

 

Where does Marrying fit into this picture?

 

We commit ourselves to Life, or we do not. It’s as simple as that.

 

If that is simple.

 

Yes.

 

Acorns and Seekers each have a Destiny

Spirit tells me that the destiny of an acorn is to become

An oak tree and the destiny of an infant is to become an

Adult. Each will unconsciously strive to manifest its

Predetermined destiny. Life has given each a goal.

 

Life has also provided humans with the capacity to

Consciously choose to commit themselves to a goal,

Or to believe that they have chosen what is also a

Destiny, for them, if for no other.

 

Seekers desire to learn more and more about whatever

It is that interests them, whether it be in the field of

Sports, music, theatre, business, cooking, academic

Studies, mechanics, farming, whatever.

 

Spiritual seekers are no better and no worse than those

Who seek to climb mountains. They are each following

Their own chosen destiny, if it can be considered as

Being chosen when we feel an inner drive to achieve

Something that means much to us and possibly little

To some others.

 

Be true to oneself?

 

Yes.
