Spirit shares His understanding of the timeless wisdom of I Ching. Today’s lesson relates to the lived situation expressd by Hexagram 36 – Damage to Illumination.. Earth is over Fire; yin over yang. Damage to Illumination follows Advance (35), and leads to People in the Home (37).
“The Universal Law of Change is connected to but separate from other Universal Laws such as Karma.We have no power to prevent change for we are part of all that Is changing. We co-create, with all life, not what changes but how it and we change.
“Damage to Illumination expresses this Universal reality. We can pretend not to see or accept even what we cannot honestly deny.”
“Why would we pretend not to see?”
“Perhaps for fear of being required to accept responsibility for an undeniable truth.”
“That we each are part of what is, and we play a role in how it will develop. Did we Advance (35) too quickly, or too slowly, to see how it would affect our Family (37)?
“How can we ever know?”
“Isn’t there an easier way?”
