30. Clarity, Line 3

” . . . loudly bewail the approach of old age. Misfortune.”

Do not demand an end to one thing or the beginning of another. Accept that what is right comes in its own time.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Clarity about the realities of life will relieve you of a lot of pain and anxiety.

Pissing and moaning because you are getting older is a complete waste of your energy, time, and thought.

The Book of Changes says: You are getting older. You will eventually die. It’s the Big Change that happens to everybody.

Clarity about the inevitability of old age will allow you to expend your energy more wisely in the here and now.

Clarity came with two more changing lines of specific advice, Lines 4 and 5.

……………………………………………

Tomorrow: Line 4: ” . . . it flares up, dies down, is thrown away.”
