Today’s I Ching – 7 – The Army follows Contention (6) in the order of the hexagrams, and leads to Closeness (8). Earth is over Water; yin over yin. Only lines two and five complement each other, and even then with yin on a yang line and yang on a yin line.

Spirit explains: “Political contention can be expressed as protest demonstrations . When and if leaders abuse their positions of trust and ignore the will of their people, then protest results.”

“Or submission?”

“Submission doesn’t work.”

“And the army does?”

“Temporarily, yes.”

“Why temporarily?”

“The army enforces law and order, but has allegiance to both sides.”

“But, what is resolved?”

“The army isn’t designed to resolve anything.”

“Who, then?”

“Individuals.”

“Are we going in circles?”

“No.”

“What, then?”

“Cycles.”
