Immaturity waits for Contention

Today’s I Ching reading, for me, by Spirit. And, don’t ask me

What I did to deserve it. I don’t know.

 

Spirit explains: I Ching 5 – Waiting, develops from Immaturity,

And leads to Contention. Waiting suggests expectation of a future.

 

A future what?

 

Is the future a what?

 

Can we pretend that I didn’t ask?

 

It’s too late for that option.

 

Why?

 

Life moves forward and expands. It neither stops nor undoes

What has been done.

 

Then what or whom are we waiting for?

 

We are waiting for immaturity to meet contention and,

In the process, mature.

 

My immaturity?

 

Yes.

Stay Young in Your Thinking

Today’s I Ching is Difficulty (3), developing out of The Receptive (2) and

Moving toward Immaturity (4).

 

Spirit explains: Water is above Thunder in the situation represented by

Hexagram 3, Difficulty. Water is unstable, while thunder consistently

Follows lightning.

 

Also, water must find its own level.  This is not a matter of thought or

Emotion. It is a law of nature, or water’s destiny.  Only in the forms of

Ice or snow can water remain above anything. Outside forces, such as

Sun, wind, or gravity move water where they will to.

 

Where does Immaturity fit into this picture?

 

Immaturity is a blessing.

 

How? And why?

 

Immature forms of life have more potential for growth than do

Older ones. Mature forms are less receptive to development.

 

The message?

 

Stay young in your thinking.
