Today as tomorrow’s illusion of yesterday

Spirit explains I Ching 42 – Increase

 

Wind over Thunder; strong Yin over stronger Yang.

Increase follows Reduction in 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 the others.

 

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.

 

Teacher, why is yesterday an illusion while tomorrow is

A reality?

 

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?

 

Yes.

Spirit explains I Ching 42 – Gradual Progress

Gradual Progress follows Mountain

 

Spirit explains:

 

Why do people climb mountains? Because they’re there.

Anything that blocks our way can be considered as a challenge

Or as inspiration to discover whatever might be beyond

A seemingly suggested limit.

 

Something is often blocking our way; our way to wherever, or

Whatever we might be if we refused to be stopped by

Challenges to our progress; physical, intellectual, emotional,

Or spiritual.

 

We each have a calling; a voice within us, within every cell of

Our being, that calls us to move or not to move, and when.

 

We have been socially conditioned to listen to outer voices.

Perhaps the time has come to listen to our own, inner one.

 

Could you be my inner voice?

 

Yes.

 

Are you?

 

No.
