25. The Unexpected, Line 2

“If one does not count on the harvest before planting . . . “

Don’t demand to be sure of the outcome before you start. Do what is right and the outcome will take care of itself.

In times like this, The Unexpected is the rule, not the exception. We expected Covid-19 rates to keep falling in the summer, and here we are, at the end of July, with rates going up. And of an even worse strain.

What if you had decided that Covid-19 wasn’t going to be much of a threat by Aug. 1, so you made your family vacation for the first week of August. You spent hours at the computer making plane, car rental, and hotel reservations along a carefully-timed route of scenic wonders.

Now, here we are on July 23, and your planned destination is a current hot spot for cases of Delta variant. You and your spouse have been vaccinated fully, but the kids have not. But . . . you are all desperate to get out and “do something different.”

Nothing is worth taking a risk with your child’s life if you don’t have to. The Yi says, “Do what is right and the outcome will take care of itself.”
