Spirit’s I Ching reading for today – 44 – Meeting.
Meeting develops from Removal and leads to Gathering.
We cannot move into tomorrow without first leaving today behind us.
We remove ourselves from the past and look forward to gathering
New experiences and, perhaps, new friends.
Life requires faith. We cannot reach out while we are holding on.
Holding on to what?
Letting go is easier said than done.
Yes, or it would not require faith.
Faith in what?
Not what, but whom.
Then, faith in whom?
Faith in yourself.
Spirit tells me that one purpose of a memoir is to move forward
By looking back, as one might do while climbing a high hill or
Low mountain that, for reasons of our own, must be climbed.
Life itself can seem to be an uphill battle, but we might get
Some satisfaction from looking back and seeing how far
We have come. And, then, with a sense of accomplishment,
Turn again our focus ahead, anticipating the pleasure of
Celebrating a mission accomplished.
Does it ever happen;?
Reaching the finish line.
Spirit tells me that
I cannot move beyond
What I am, but, that
I have moved beyond
What I once was, or
Where I once was,
Which is another way of
Saying the same thing.
We are moving forward,
He assures me, when I
Get discouraged and wonder
If I am going anywhere
Along the path of
Many grade three students
Want to be in grade five, but
We must accept that we can usually
Only advance one grade
At a time.
Trust me, He asks,
That we will get there,
Wherever there is,
But, for now, we are
Where we are. So,
Let’s enjoy who we are, now.
Living this moment
To the next one.
