Today’s I Ching – 14 – Great Possession
Fire over Heaven.
Great Possession follows Association with Others.
We were not designed to be always alone.
We need community; to give to and to
Receive from, sharing and caring.
The greatest possible possession is to
Be as one with all, and yet be unique.
Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
expressed within the I Ching hexagram 62 – Small Excess.
Thunder is over Mountain. Both contain active yang energy,
each reinforcing the power of the other.
Small excess suggests a limited expansion of an otherwise
rigid boundary of what is acceptable or required, such as
pouring even a little more of whatever into a cup than it
can contain. That would be wasteful
Can there be a little excess of compassion?
What would it look like?
Caring and yet recognizing a need for even more care.
How is that expressing excess compassion?
Giving all that I can and knowing that it isn’t enough
to satisfy the need of those for whom I feel compassion.
We can never give even a small excess of compassion.
No amount would be wasteful.
Whether or not it seemed to be appreciated?
Compassion is a feeling of oneness with all and reflects
the quality of our own awareness of the oneness of all
life. We share our love. We don’t measure it.
