We Share the Choice

Spirit shares His understanding of the  I Ching Wisdom expressed by Hexagram 18 – Degeneration. Mountain (Yin) is over Wind (Yang). Degeneration follows Following (17) and leads to Overseeing (19).

Spirit explains:  “The 2nd line is Yang and the 5th line is Yin. The fifth line in every hexagram is the line of leadership and responsibility, and, ideally,  a yang line, and yet, in this instance, yin is on this line. However, the complement of the 5th is the 2nd, and yang on the second line which is normally a  yin line, provides for a sharing of this position of power.”

“But, if degeneration is the condition that they share …”

“How could it be otherwise?”

“I would like to think that any degenerating situation is
a result of masculine abuse of power.”

“That would be to deny the existence of feminine energy.”

“How?”

“How what?”

“How does masculine responsibility for whatever condition
or situation deny feminine energy?”

“Abdication of, or denial of, responsibility is, more or less,
acceptance of whatever situation or condition results from
such behaviour.”

“Are you trying to tell me that …”

“I am telling you that dynamic interaction requires
inequality; transient or otherwise, of each and all
of the individual energies in the choices we make.”

“We?”

“We share the choice.”

“And the outcome?”

“Yes.”

I Ching Wisdom – Respect the visions from the timeless past

Spirit shares His understand of Hexagram 52 – Mountain. Mountain above and Mountain below – a double yin of  equal formation.

“Mountain follows Thunder and will be followed by Gradual Progress. As the seasons of our life each follow the one that cameBefore it, so it is with each generation of Seekers of The Way. We cannot be, see, or do as any other previous generation. .The seasons, the years, and the generations each owe to the past their very existence, and yet, there is continuity without sameness.

We each see and understand as no-one else, if we dare to see
From where we alone are, while respecting the visions of the
Elders, mentors, and teachers from the timeless past.”

“Wow! And the message for me?”

“Yes.”
