Spirit’s Daily I Ching Reading
Water over Fire
Settled follows Small Excess
The yin and yang forces in water and fire balance each other,
Creating harmony. This is a settled social condition.
Small excesses do no harm. There are checks and balances
Within any society or social group. These are designed and
Prepared to maintain a more or less settled order.
Or you drown my fire?
Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit
Water above Lake
Discipline follows Dispersal.
Dispersal describes scattering, a disorganized
Movement of whatever.
Water over Lake strongly suggests flooding,
A disorganized movement of water, or emotion.
Where is discipline?
Obviously, it is missing.
Is that a personal comment?
Today’s I Ching Reading by Spirit
Lake above Mountain
Sensing follows Fire.
Sensing expresses a blend of physical senses,
And more. We see fire. We smell it.
We hear it, and we feel the heat.
We also know the power of fire
From previous experience.
I seem to sense you are cautioning me
About more than literal fire.
Today’s I Ching – 40 – Solution
Thunder over Water
Solution follows Halting.
Halting suggests not moving, as a sailboat
On a lake, without a breeze.
Thunder stirs the air.
We need to make a noise?
Sometimes that’s the best solution.
Ask a child.
Biting Through follows Observing (Hexagram 20).
Spirit explains: To observe suggests an attitude
of detachment and duality when, in essence
oneness is all that exists.
Biting through expresses awareness and intention;
a determination to experience oneness, and to
release or bite through whatever seems to prevent
us from experiencing that reality.
Entrenched belief systems.
But, we must believe something.
We need guidelines; rules of order that make
sense; that we understand.
Wind follows Travel in the order of the Hexagrams.
When we travel we must adapts to
We are always travelling, He tells me, through Life,
Without ever not being Life itself.
Is there a personal message for me?
Are you separate?
Today’s I Ching – 62 – Small Excess – Thunder over Mountain.
Spirit asks me if we can walk through a mountain.
Only if someone blows a tunnel through it.
The mountain of our mind.
How is it like a mountain (and, yes, I know I’m walking
Seemingly solid, but really only dense.
A fog is not rock.
Sincerity follows Discipline in the order of the Hexagrams.
Discipline, as self-control, and it is always self-control, for
Whatever reason, is not a value in itself. It is a means to an end.
What about Sincerity?
What about it?
Why does it follow Discipline?
It always follows Discipline.
If we are sincere in our intention to do or be whatever, then
Self-discipline must be followed.
