Understanding Inspires Us

A Spirit teacher shares His understanding of the timeless wisdom
expressed within the I Ching Hexagram 21 – Biting Through.

Fire is over Thunder. Fire represents a type of flexible yin energy.
Thunder is forceful yang.

Biting Through emerges from Observing (20) and prepares
the foundation for Adornment (22).

Wow! Each of those three situations or conditions seem
totally unrelated to either of the other two. How can there be
any sense of progression?

There isn’t.

Then, how are they each connected to the others?

When we observe whatever, we focus our attention and
that in itself is a necessary step in learning anything.
But, as important as it is, it is never enough. We must
then attempt to understand what it is that we observe,
and why it has attracted our attention. This requires
a mental form of biting through.

Where does adornment fit into this interpretation?

It is more than an interpretation. It is as it is.

Then please explain where or how adornment fits.

We adorn ourselves with what appeals to us and
the sense of satisfaction that comes from
understanding is appealing.

Unless we understand something that suggests danger.

Even then.

How?

Then our understanding of impending danger inspires us.

To respond to the danger?

Yes.

Community is a valuable resource if…

Spirit’s I Ching for today is 14 – Great Possession, which follows

Association in the order of the hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains: Community is a valuable resource if the people

We choose to associate with express values similar to our own.

 

There is always a danger, He cautions. When anyone possess

Something of great value, there are always some others who

Would, if they could, and they do, when opportunities seem to

Allow, to pretend friendship with those with great possessions,

With  intent to exploit that association for their own benefit, alone.

 

What great possessions are we talking about?

 

We?

 

You.

 

Great possessions are potential or realized resources and may

Include one, some, or all of material, intellectual, emotional, or

Spiritual energies.

 

If this is a personal reading…

 

And it is.

 

Then, what great possession do I have that could or would attract

False friends?

 

Yes.

 

 

I Ching 23 – Stripping Away

Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping away

Stripping Away follows Adornment

 

Spirit explains:

 

Words of love can be sincere or as a glossy book cover that

May or may not describe the inner story.

 

But, I protest, an appealing cover or title may attract my

Attention.

 

What would attract you more, the title or the cover?

 

Both together, more or less – design and words that

Express each other.

 

So it is with our way of life.

 

How?

 

Our lifestyle habits express our inner life well,

Or they do not. It’s as simple as that.
