Movement Has No Purpose of its Own
A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
Contained within I Ching 56 – Travel.
In the order of the hexagrams, Travel follows Abundance (55)
And transforms itself into Wind (57), or has the potential to do so,
If we only travel because of restlessness.
The trigram Fire is above Mountain. Fire is Yin energy
Mountain is yang.
Isn’t that curious?
That yin Fire moves while yang Mountain is placid.
Mountains are never placid. A calm exterior can contain
Dynamic energy. Now can we continue with the reading?
Fire moves, or at least has potential to move
Mountains are generally known for their stability.
If we travel from and then return to a mountain,
We can usually be confident that it will be where we left it.
A fire may have moved on and created destruction.
What general message would this reading seem to suggest?
Travel is only movement if it has no purpose.
