Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping Away
Mountain above. Earth below.
Stripping Away follows Adornment.
Spirit Explains: “Adornment suggests excess of what is functionally necessary. Stripping away reduces some of this excess.”
“It’s time,” He tells me, “for a new beginning; to live a more simple and uncluttered lifestyle. The way we live should express both our inner and outer values, in harmony with each other.”
“How is that possible, without the material means to express oneself as one would? ‘
“Then we do what we can with what we have. And, ” He suggests, “there are always areas of excess in our lives.”
“Excess of inactivity could be reduced with exercise.”
I give up.
