Spirit shares His understanding of I Ching wisdom, as expressed in the life situation described in Hexagram 27 – Nourishment.
” Mountain is over Thunder; yin over yin. Nourishment follows Accumulation (26) and leads to Great Surpassing (28). Even squirrels seem to know they must store something now for later. We build for today but also for tomorrow, if we seek to provide for
our future, even knowing that we may not live to enjoy it.”
“Saving something for tomorrow is generally accepted wisdom, but
there are those who have little or nothing to save, and barely enough to survive today. What about them?”
“Did they draw the card?”
“No, I did.”
“Then, to whom does the message apply?”
“And what is the message that applies to you?”
“To be more thrifty than I now am?”
Note: A curiously appropriate message for me, for
today I receive my monthly allowance, and I confess that
I am not the most frugal woman in town.
