This obviously means that one must reach high to get the best. But it also means
something else. It means that something out there, beyond your grasp, is ready to be
for you. And you need to reach not just so you can get your nourishment, but so the
peach can be used as it has been prepared to be used.
Take for example you have a job opportunity overseas. You can’t see the people
there, you can’t see the apartment you might have or the landlord, or the people in
the building you might get to know. You can’t see the co-workers, the people at the
cafe you frequent, you can’t see any of the opportunities in detail just as you can’t
see the peach’s ripeness in detail when you look at it from the ground.
But what you can know is that it isn’t just an opportunity for you, it is an
opportunity for others as well. You are part of a multi-dimensional array of unseen
events when you reach for the best, when you reach for what is ready.
