The Fire of Imagination

Spirit shares His understanding of I Ching Wisdom.

Hexagram 30 – Fire (Clinging) follows Double Pitfall (29)
and is in turn followed by Sensing (31).

Double Pitfall seems to suggest being stuck or trapped
between a rock and a hard place.

A need to choose between two unpleasant options?

Yes.

We could resist choosing either.

Postpone decision-making and hope for a third …?

Not hope.

Then, what?

Expanding our awareness of the situation.

Where does Fire fit in?

Into what?

Into taking time to consider possible alternatives
that are not obviously available?

The fire of imagination.

Envisioning what a third option would look like?

Yes.

What if there isn’t a third option?

There is always another way out of any problem.

That sounds absolute.

It is absolute.

Then, Sensing could suggest using one’s intuition?

For what purpose?

To guide our decision-making.

Yes.

What Universal Law(s) Apply to Awareness?

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.

I Ching 12 – Obstruction, follows Tranquility.

Times of peace never last?

It is the nature of yin and yang to interact
with each other. The seasons, too, play
this game, as do day and night. The tides
rise high and then slip back only to rise
again, before …

Does it all go on forever?

What?

Up and down, in and out, win and lose.

The natural order provides a background
for all life to learn to adapt. It’s
a beginning.

A beginning of what?

Higher education.

What does higher education have
in common with tranquility and
obstruction?

We learn to reach high, while we can.

To make hay while the sun shines?

Exactly.

That sounds great …

But?

How can we advance beyond narrow …

Or shallow?

Yes. Limits were surely designed
to be expanded.

What limits?

The limits of human …

Why only human?

Then, of awareness, creativity,
imagination, and consciousness.

They have no limits.

Then, if universal laws apply …

And they do.

Then, what universal law or laws
apply to the expansion of
awareness, creativity, imagination,
and consciousness?

Cause and effect, karma, fate,
and destiny.

Each or all of them?

Each and all of them.
