Time Out From Struggle
A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
contained within the I Ching Hexagram 34 – Great Power.
The yang trigram Thunder is above Heaven, also yang.
Only the top two yin lines provide instability and flexibility.
Great Power follows Withdrawal (33) and leads to Advance (35).
How can any power, let alone great power, come out of
withdrawing from whatever?
Withdrawal is not necessarily acceptance of defeat. There are
times when it’s wise to step back. This can provide us with
a greater perspective and a clearer vision on how to move
A battle is only a battle if we see it as such. For some it is
no more than a challenge to our commitment to move
There is nothing personal in struggles, conflicts, or obstacles
in our path unless we believe there is.
A personal message?
Yes. What’s your greatest challenge?
Resistance is not necessarily rejection.
