Thinking Isn’t Being

Spirit shares His understanding of the I Ching
Hexagram 25 – No Error.

Heaven is above and Thunder is below.

No Error develops out of Return (25) and moves
into Great Accumulation (26).

There is always continuous movement within
each life and within each relationship that
connects each life into more than it would be
possible to be if individuality was other than
inseparable from all life; past, present, and
future.

Where does the concept of no error come into
this picture?

What picture?

Your description of life and of our oneness
within it

We are each more than one within Life. We are
Life.

Then, how does knowing that help us to live
a meaningful life?

We cannot live a meaningful life without
knowing it.

But, a meaningful life may mean different
things to different people.

What has that to do with anything?

Living a meaningful life may mean everything
to some individuals.

There are no individuals.

Perhaps, but there may be many of us who think
we are, more or less.

Thinking isn’t being.

It may be as close to being as some of us get.

Yes.

When intevention is unavoidable

I Ching 30 – Clinging

 

Spirit explains: Clinging is composed of Fire over Fire and follows

Double Danger. This situation has been described as being

Between a rock and a hard place.

 

Fire does not easily let go of whomever or whatever it is

Clinging to. The best protection is prevention.

 

The second best?

 

Avoidance.

 

How is it possible to avoid a danger that threatens

Those whom you love?

 

Yes, it is not.

 

Then what?

 

Then we each must choose how to respond.

 

Some form of intervention?

 

Yes. It is both necessary and unavoidable.

 

Spirit’s I Ching 21 – Biting Through

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit – 21

Biting Through follows Observing.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Everyone interacts with the world they live in, the world that we

Seem to know we are part of. And, yet, many of us observe

This world as being outside of ourselves. This is an illusion

That we must learn to bite through.

 

The skin of an apple is often firm and yet, if we bite through

This protective layer we reach the tasty fruit that waits for us,

Just beneath the surface; our reward for the effort taken.

 

Why do I sometimes feel that I am more a part of the

Outer skin than of the inner reality?

 

Perhaps we all live on the surface of Life, with some of us

Being more aware than are others of how deep our roots

Reach down and dissolve into Life itself, to become nutrients

For our future.

 

It sounds deep.

 

It is deep, and we are part of it.

 

 

 

Today’s I Ching – 57 – Wind

Wind follows Travel in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

 

When we travel we must adapts to

Changing situations.

 

We are always travelling, He tells me, through Life,

Without ever not being Life itself.

 

Is there a personal message for me?

 

Are you separate?

 

No.
