Spirit shares His understanding of Hexagram 42 – Increase
“Wind is over Thunder; strong Yang over loud Yin. Increase necessarily follows Reduction in the order of the hexagrams. The order of the hexagrams expresses both continuity and change in situations, conditions, and individuals, and in their relationships with, and how they each respond to and influence each other..
Reduction implies that something is less than it once was.Increase speaks for itself. Low and high tides follow each other in a continuous pattern that expresses both change and continuity. As with tides, so with all relationships. There is both change and continuity. People come into our lives and then move out, or are moved out. We need to learn to let them go. The reality of tomorrow cannot come until we release the illusion of yesterday.”
“Why is yesterday an illusion while tomorrow is…?”
“Tomorrow is not a reality in itself, only a potential one, in our mind, as a hope for another, and possibly better, today.”
“But, before that can happen, we must let today become yesterday.”
“Then, today becomes tomorrow’s illusion of yesterday?”
