I Ching 39 – Halting

Today’s I Ching – 39 – Halting

Water above

Thunder below

Halting follows Disharmony in the

Order of the Hexagrams.

 

Is Spirit playing a game?

What game? The cards were

Well shuffled, and yet,

Today’s 39 goes back by one,

Yesterday’s 40, as if

Reversing the order of

Cause and effect, or,

To study the cause of

The cause.  This game

Could go back to

The beginning.

 

Spirit explains:

There never was and never will be

A beginning, and, the game goes on

Forever.

 

 

I Ching 40 – Solution

Today’s I Ching – 40 – Solution

Thunder above, Water below

Solution follows Halting in the order

Of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

We only stop moving forward when

Someone or something

Prevents us from doing so.

However, halting is not forever

Unless we choose it to be so.

A rolling stone will stop

And settle, until some

Outside force moves it, but

Water, when it is flowing

Will not be stopped

So easily. It builds up

It’s strength to push forward

Or around whatever

Would block its way.

 

I do not ask Spirit to explain

What His reading says to me.

I don’t want to know.

Not today.

I’ve heard it all before.

 

 

 

I Ching 42 – Increase

Today’s I Ching – 42 – Increase

Wind above (first daughter)

Thunder below (first son)

To me it looks like a sibling war.

Increase follows Reduction in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

Oh, oh. Spirit seems aware of my thoughts. What thoughts? The cynical notion, idea that, perhaps, if   what you have has been reduced enough then the only way to go is up. Spirit seems to think that frugality and simplicity are sacred ways of living, even in the physical world. I disagree.

 

Now, to the reading.

 

Spirit is not impressed with my, perhaps, less than respectful observation, and tells me that there will be no reading.

 

A power trip?

 

Yes.

 

I Ching 41 – Reduce

Today’s I Ching – 41 – Reduce

Mountain above, Lake below

Reduce follows Solution in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains: Solution is a peak experience.

Then we sink into a mood of

Self-satisfaction, forgetting,

At least for the moment,

Awareness of the Law of Change.

Nothing lasts. Solutions

To one problem are

Necessarily followed by

New challenges, designed to

Test our capacities and

Prepare us for…

 

I interrupt, sensing His message for me,

No time out?

Not yet.
