A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
contained within I Ching 43 – Removal.
Lake is over Heaven. Lake is Yin and Heaven is Yang.
Yin, in this instance, is as a butterfly on a rock. What
interaction or common ground can the two possibly share;
frail over solid?
A rock is not easily crushed nor moved, but neither can it
move itself; while a butterfly is easily crushed, but it has
power to move itself out of the way of danger – lightness
and mobility over weight and immobility.
Removal follows Increase (42) and develops into Meeting (44).
That’s a curious sequential order.
I can understand that increase can become clutter and requiring
downsizing, or removal of whatever no longer serves us well, but
how does this lead to Meeting?
Meeting is coming together.
With whom or what?
Of whatever is necessary or desirable and useful, and what
is manufactured need.
How can need be manufactured?
