Resistance is Necessary to Life
Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.
Today’s situation on our journey through human
existence is designed to develop the attributes
of Hexagram 2 – The Receptive.
Earth is both above and below, and represents
Mother Nature, or for those who see Nature
as disconnected from themselves, the environment.
Nature is both flexible and firm. Though it
generally accepts directions from Universal Laws,
and both adapts and contributes to the needs
of other life forms, it also maintains its own
personal essence, and lives to express its own
purpose and desires, resisting any form of abuse.
It sounds like me.
It is you, and everyone else, both individually
But, Nature is surely much more than people.
As in kind, or power?
We each are part of Nature and yet Nature is
much more than all of us together.
What is the message?
What could Nature teach you about yourself?
To be flexible, yet firm, and to seek to express ..
Not to seek to express.
Then, to express my own purpose and desires,
and to resist abuse in any form.
That’s fine and noble, except …
It can be so wearying.
And easier to give in to abuse?
What effect does that have on the abuser?
It seems to encourage more abuse.
Yes. A certain low level but constant
resistance is necessarily a part of
the Game of Life.
Get used to it?
