Spirit teaches I Ching – Yesterday Marries Today to Create Tomorrow
Spirit’ shares His understanding of Hexagram 54 – Marrying a Young Woman.
“Marrying a Young Woman follows Gradual Progress (53) and leads to Abundance (55). Thunder is over Lake; yin over yang. The fifth line of leadership is a yang line, and yet, in this instance it is occupied by yin. Line two is a complementary yin line of support of line five, and yet it is occupied by yang.”
“Perhaps, the reversal of traditional roles of yin and yang as expressed in lines two and five may have been a premonition of a future shake-up of traditional roles?”
“Yes. The traditional reading of the Hexagram 54 – Marrying a Young Woman seems to place a woman in a position of servitude to an older man. In the context of social and cultural relationships, this attitude is changing.
In a deeper sense of yin and yang, from a spiritual and enlightenment perspective, yang dominance, in this instance, refers to a necessarily voluntary yin-type submission of the seeker to the mystical essence of timeless truths, and to personally chosen, dedicated teachers of those truths.
Through the marriage of present insights and levels of understanding with perennial wisdom, the future of enlightenment is co-created.
All that is, was, or will be can only be created from a blend of new and old; what is and what was, together become what will be.”
“Is there a personal message for me?”
