Reduction without sacrificing
Spirit shares I Ching wisdom. “The focus of today’s lesson is on Hexagram 41 – Reduction – Mountain is over Lake.”
“How is that possible?”
“Mountains rise up out of water or earth.
They do things like that. Also, mountains are by nature, above
their surroundings, except for
mountains higher than themselves.
Reduction is the process of making
something less. It takes a superior
person to reduce whatever is under
her or his control.”
“Yes. Following a path of simplicity
does not require sacrificing personal
quality of life.”
