A spirit wisdom teacher explains I Ching 12 – Obstruction.
Obstruction follows Tranquility, or might, if might rules.
The construction of the hexagrams for Obstruction and tranquility
Both presents both yang and yin energies as concentrated and opposed.
Tranquility expresses followers as being seemingly held in high
Status. But, the power remains concentrated in the leadership.
Obstruction is a more-or-less reversed order. Leadership is on top
But only by suppression, which invites resistance.
Obedience is not co-operation. There is no sense of trust, and
Each side feels alienated from the other. There must be a
Blending of energies for each to feel part of the solution.
Is this a political situation or one of relationship?
Yes, and an attitude one.
Attitudes direct how we perceive whatever situation and how
We perceive directs our action, or reluctance to act.
Could the situation apply to teacher and student …
Then what is the solution?
Can we find common ground?
Yes, and some is a beginning.
