Spirit’s I Ching reading for today – 44 – Meeting.
Meeting develops from Removal (43) and leads to Gathering (45).
We cannot move into tomorrow without first leaving today
Behind us. We remove ourselves from the past and look
Forward to gathering new experiences and, perhaps, meeting
Life requires faith. We cannot reach out while we are
Holding on to what?
Letting go is easier said than done.
Yes, or it would not require faith.
Faith in what?
Not what, but whom.
Then, faith in whom?
Faith in yourself.
Degeneration follows Following. We each follow a Way of Life and a
Teacher of that way, whether we are aware of this reality, or not.
“Know thyself” has been cautioned through the ages. Why?
Because, we are each responsible for allowing our
Inner vision to deteriorate, if it does.
How does degenerating vision relate to following?
Yes, as both cause and effect, creating a downward spiral of
Today’s I Ching – 18 – Degeneration
Mountain above. Wind below.
Degeneration follows Following.
Degeneration suggests decay. In the relationship
Between those who follow and those who lead,
Morale is low, as when one loses faith in her
What can be done if it is as it is?
She could pretend it was otherwise.
You would know.
Today’s I Ching – 30 – Clinging
Fire above. Fire below.
Clinging follows Double Pitfall.
Double Pitfall expresses extreme danger. Be aware, but,
Have faith in yourself, if in no other. And, in essence,
Each of us contains and is contained within all others.
Clinging is double fire, as is the passion of faith and purpose.
Does the message suggest confrontation?
Yes and no.
Confrontation can only be possible if we see it.
Close my eyes?
No. Open them.
Today’s I Ching – 4 – Immaturity
Mountain above. Water below.
Immaturity follows Difficulty in the order of the Hexagrams.
Everything is difficult until we learn how;
How to stand, how to walk, how to speak,, …
I interrupt. And how to think?
What to think, Spirit corrects me.
Immaturity is not necessarily
Forever, if the immature one
Has faith and guidance…
Yes., but not misplaced trust.
How can I know…
Experience is required and
Life provides us with
All that we need.
