I woke up today feeling a little wobbly. I probably throw the I Ching (the book of changes) a couple times a week on average – although some weeks I really seek its reflections.
Today the I Ching suggested that I rest down and do 3 things: first, “Let go of everything.” Second, “Make nothing.” and third, “Allow everything to be like it is (including yourself).”
This is not easy advice to follow. I am a bit of a control freak and I occasionally tend to worry about stuff. So it might have been the best advice I could have been given! But still not easy to follow.
Although I must say that I did pretty good. I did some kundalini yoga first thing, then I had a good breakfast. Next I checked email. Then I watched an episode of Arrested Development – just for laughs. And finally I read a chapter in my Pharmacology book. After taking the dog for a walk, I had a huge omelet for lunch and then I took a two and a half hour nap before getting ready for work. I think I did pretty well following the I Ching’s advice. Although I am still prone to fretting.
Thanks for reading!
