Foretelling The Future

Man is so desperate to know his future, he invents all kinds of methods to foretell it, or at least try to. We want to know what’s coming, what we can expect. We hate the unexpected and it stands to reason that we should expect the unexpected; but if we expect the unexpected, then it really isn’t unexpected. Some attempt it by reading tea leaves and make no mistake, there are very definite rules to the practice. My thought is you analyze the tea leaves, and I will enjoy the tea. It always amazes me that some people who follow the reality of the Dao closely are so infatuated with the practice of I Ching, yet another fortune telling practice. Does the future scare man so much that he tries to find comfort in such gimmicks?
