Spirit shares His understanding of Hexagram 45 -Gathering. Lake is over Earth; yang over yin, with lines two and five in harmonious correlation with each other; yang in the leadership position on line five, and yin in the balanced and centered support position of line two. Gathering follows Meeting (44) in the order of the hexagrams, and is followed by Rising (46).
Spirit explains: “A meeting is more than a gathering. It is a gathering with a purpose, a shared purpose.”
“Why does meeting come before gathering?”
“We cannot gather without first meeting.”
“Whether we know the people we are meting, or not?”
“Meeting is never random.”
“Even if we have never met before?”
Today’s I Ching is Tranquility, an atmosphere of peace and
Tranquility follows Treading, which is movement. Now it is
Time for rest, but not a prolonged time of inactivity.
The I Ching teaches us that Life expands and moves.
Is there a personal message?
What is it?
There is no need to hurry. We will arrive where we intend to,
When we intend to.
Wait and see.
Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit
Thunder over Wind
Constancy follows Sensing
Where there is thunder, there is wind. They are as
Constant companions but not as equals.
Wind will always come with thunder but thunder
Will not always be with wind.
We made a commitment to what we sensed was right
What commitment would we make?
A way of life?
