Power Comes From Within
Spirit shares I Ching Wisdom.
Today, the situation that we encounter
along our journey through Life is
expressed by Hexagram 33- Withdrawal.
Withdrawal follows Constancy, and
moves toward or into Great Power.
How can withdrawal lead to any power,
let alone great power?
What does it mean to withdraw and,
Constancy suggests steadiness;
not easily moved.
It can also suggest patience; waiting
until opportunity presents itself.
Then, opportunity comes from without?
But, awareness of it comes from within.
Yes. WE can plan and prepare to execute
our plans, even during times unfavorable
to acting on them.
A farmer plans what he will plant before
the season of planting arrives. Then,
weather conditions being favorable,
he puts into action plans that needed
only an opportunity to carry through.
Where does Great Power enter into
The power comes from within; self-control,
patience, planning, and the courage
to follow through on our plans when
circumstances are favorable for doing so.
