Stress as Exercise

Spirit shares His understanding of Hexagram 53 – Gradual Progress,.

“Gradual Progress follows Mountain (52) in the continuous progression of the hexagrams, and leads to Marrying a Young Woman (54). Wind is over Mountain; yang is over yin, and lines  two and five are in perfect harmony with each other. Yang is on the fifth line of leadership and yin is on the second line, in a centered and balanced support position.

An easy path to follow is no challenge to our physical, emotional, intellectual, or spiritual potential capacities for growth. Physical muscles require exercise in order to expand. Emotional and/or mental stress is a similar process to exercise, and can contribute to emotional, intellectual, and spiritual expansion. Of course, as with physical exercise, too much stress defeats its purpose. A mountain can express an end-of-the-line kind of obstruction, or no more than a challenge to our progress.”

“Is there a personal message for me?”

“Yes. Stop complaining, and keep moving forward and upward. Gradual progress is still progress.”

Today’s I Ching – 41 – Reduction

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit.

Reduction follows Solution.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Solution expresses an ending of struggle. There is a way out.

A light turns on. A puzzle has been solved. Finding a solution

reduces built-up stress, at least temporarily.

 

Why only temporarily?

 

Struggle is necessary for growth and strengthens self-confidence.

 

How?

 

We learn through experience that we can find a solution to

Whatever challenges Life presents us with.

 

Is it a game?

 

Yes, and the game is a gift of Life.
