I have found the I-Ching to be a great reminder of the power of “superior emotions” — perseverance, gentleness, innocence, detachment, modesty — as a source for balance, happiness and peace. What throws us out of balance and off our game are the “inferior emotions” of judgement, fear, doubt, anxiety, or desire.
The lessons in I-Ching resonate so clearly with my 100Pedals experiences and the path I have embraced for my life the past few years. The progress I desire for my life is found in the little, consistent steps I take every day. When I trust my path and live in the peace of that journey I maintain incredible balance and momentum. When I allow adversity to interrupt me, I interrupt my peace and my progress. That interruption is always notable and has an impact. In this approach, I have learned to live and respond to the life’s events from a place of peace that has kept me moving in a very positive and powerful way.
Every day I choose to live from that peace and confidence of my journey and my path. The impact that this approach has had on the outcomes and on my daily emotions has been amazing.
