Spirit teaches the timeless wisdom of I Ching. Today’s lesson is expressed in Hexagram 15 – Humility.
“Humility follows Great Possessions (14) in the order of the Hexagrams. Earth over Mountain – or is it Mountain pushing up through Earth? Humility, in it’s most sincere form, blended with awe and gratitude, can develop out of great possessions, when she who possesses abundance becomes aware that anything and everything we may possess at any given time is doomed, or destined (depending upon one’s perspective), and is only ours while it is ours. What is becomes what was, sooner or later. The good news is that pleasures and possessions can be enjoyed without clinging to them.”
“What does that mean for me?”
“Do you now have great possessions?
“My lifestyle is a simple one.”
“Great possessions do not necessarily refer to material wealth.”
“Then, I am blessed with at least one great possession, Your teaching.”
Today’s I Ching – 16 – Delight, follows Humility.
Thunder over Earth. One Yang controls five Yin, or do
Five Yin compete to please one Yang?
Spirit explains: Humility expresses acceptance of being
Less than someone or something, or pretending to feel so.
Why would anyone pretend?
It might serve you well to pretend, until you are able to accept
The reality of the relationship in question. Then, He might
Choose to continue to teach you.
Is the message a personal one?
Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping away
Stripping Away follows Adornment
Words of love can be sincere or as a glossy book cover that
May or may not describe the inner story.
But, I protest, an appealing cover or title may attract my
What would attract you more, the title or the cover?
Both together, more or less – design and words that
Express each other.
So it is with our way of life.
Our lifestyle habits express our inner life well,
Or they do not. It’s as simple as that.
