Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.
Wisdom, awareness and enlightenment each reflect
the other two, from a unique perspective.
Our current position, along the path through life,
which we have chosen, more or less, is expressed by
the I Ching Hexagram 50 – The Cauldron.
Fire is over Wind, creating heat as fire and wind
co-operate with each other.
This situation of working together to achieve
a common goal develops out of Revolution (49).
Revolutions are necessarily violent confrontations
of differing goals, as expressed by Water over Fire,
a mutually destructive situation.
Why do we seek to improve our relationships
after the battle?
The battle serves a socially useful purpose.
How is that possible if the revolution is successful?
Revolutions are never successful, except …
When they result in a change in power?
No. That would only result in a change at the top.
Then, when can revolutions be considered to be
When both sides accept that co-operation is
A win-win situation?
Spirit shares His understanting of Hexagram 16 . Tunder is over Earth; yin over yin.
“Delight means Pleasure. Delight/Pleasure follows Respectful (15) and leads to Following (17). We are attracted to like-minded people. If we can live and work together with an attitude of mutual respect then the work itself becomes a pleasure.”
“That sounds like an ideal situation, but many of us associate and work with people who seem determined not to develop an attitude of respect; mutual or otherwise.”
“Then why are we there?”
“Perhaps we feel trapped within conditions beyond our control, and must choose a situation that is the lesser of two or more evils.”
“Then, take control of the situation.”
“That’s easier said than done.”
Today’s I Ching – 46 – Rising
Earth above, Wind below.
Rising follows Gathering in the order of the Hexagrams.
Spirit explains: Whenever people gather together
To share ideas and experiences,
Both individually and collectively,
Their knowledge and awareness
Rises, both in quantity and quality.
Mutual support is both
A blessing and
A sacred responsibility.
I ask Spirit what His reading
Says to me.
