There is no lasting structure

Spirit shares gems of wisdom.

Spirit tells me that everything I say or do should be for a reason
that I understand and can accept responsibility for.

He encourages me to live life here and now, day by day, and to create
a living and lived philosophy of life, and to become what I know I can
become; more and more what I really am, by living with purpose and
meaning.

That sounds beautiful but how do I set attainable goals.

These are attainable goals.

But, the horizon is too distant and unattainable for me. I need
structure.

Yes, and there is none, none that is lasting.

Now what?

Today’s I Ching is 39 – Halting

 

Water over Mountain.

Halting follows Disharmony.

 

Spirit explains: Disharmony expresses lack of general consensus,

Disagreement, perhaps even different world views, different

Goals or needs.

 

Whatever; a way forward has been halted, brought to a

Stand=still. A mental road block can halt co-operation and

Progress as effectively as one made of stone.

 

Now what?

 

Yes.

 

Success in small things prepares us

Spirit seems to scold me for setting goals that are

So limited that they do not, to Him, qualify

To even be called such.

 

Where is intention and striving toward?

 

Perhaps I’m afraid of failure.

 

What’s wrong with failure?

 

I’m also afraid of success.

 

Yes. But, why?

 

Where to go from there?

 

It would, or could, He tells me, become as

Just one more of the many everyday successes

In my life.

 

Such as?

 

Preparing dinner.
