Continuous Movement is a Fundamental Principle of Life
Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.
Today’s situation is expressed and explained
in Hexagram 26 – Great Accumulation
Continuous movement is a fundamental principle
of the way of I Ching and way of Life.
There is no stagnation in the sense of
Situations are always either improving
or they are deteriorating. Energy moves,
one way or another, even when that
movement is happening beneath
the surface of human perception.
Energy moves, and all life is energy.
In Great Accumulation, Mountain
is rising above Heaven. Mountain
represents an accumulation of power,
such as knowledge, and wisdom
applying that power.
Heaven represents a different kind of
power – one that is available to all
of nature, not just to mountains
or people of special status.
Why has Heaven permitted Mountain
Perhaps the rest of nature is
intimidated by it’s height,
without awareness that mountains
can crumble and be shaken from
What lesson does this situation
provide for me?
You are as a small hill, in awe
of mountains with their heads
in the clouds.
But, they seem to have great
accumulation, and I don’t.
Their great accumulation may not last.
So, am I not to aspire for more?
The less you have, the less you have
to guard against losing.
But, great accumulation …
…can refer to great accumulation of
compassion and integrity, and that,
nobody can take from you.
