An Ounce of Prevention

A spirit teacher shares His understanding
of I Ching 58 – Pleasing.

Lake is over Lake.

If water is emotional …

And it is.

Then, we’ve lost perspective.

Yes.

Pleasing follows Wind and moves toward
Dispersal.

Wind could blow and disperse overflowing
lake water.

What kind of wind would disperse excess
emotion?

The winds of change?

Yes.

Is there something that can be learned
from this situation?

There is always something that can be learned
from any situation.

But, dispersal of flood waters or excess
emotions can be destructive to surrounding
areas.

Yes.

What can we do to protect ourselves and
those we love, and what we now possess.

Before or after?

Prevention is the answer?

Yes.

And, if it’s too late?

Then we suffer the consequences of failure
to recognize and respond to signs of potential
danger and act to prevent tragedies that may
have been prevented.

An ounce of prevention?

Yes.

Potential Resources are not Reserves

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.

Today’s I Ching situation is 42 – Increase.
It follows Reduction and leads to Removal.

Wind is over Thunder.
They each influence the other.

Increase following reduction suggests
replenishment of reduced reserves or
resources.

How do they differ?

Reserves and resources?

Yes.

We may still have some reserves on hand,
while resources may refer to potential
sources of supply.

Yes.

What does that mean?

We can only increase whatever we have
the potential to increase.

How does that lead to removal?

Through the Universal Law of Cause
and Effect.

Please explain.

Wisdom suggests that we carefully
consider the potential consequences
of depending upon a potential supply
of whatever from a potential source

A bird in the bush is not in the hand?

Yes.

Then, what is the message for me?

Who is your teacher?

You are.

Am I a potential source of learning
or a secure source?

Secure?

Secure.

You are my teacher while you
choose to be.

And while you choose for me to be?

For me, there is no choice.

Yes.

Spirit explains I Ching 43

Today’s I Ching – 43 – Removal.

Removal follows Increase.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Removal expresses predetermined and forceful action

To reduce or eliminate something or someone. Increase

Does not continue forever.

 

Increase in what? Removal of what? And, by whom or what?

 

Cause and effect serve Life to limit excesses of power and greed.

 

Whose power? Whose greed?

 

Not whose, as in suggesting someone other than self.

Everyone is guilty of wanting, or thinking they need,

More and more of more and more of whatever.

 

Perhaps it’s in our nature?

 

Yes, and so is the solution.

 

Which is?

 

Awareness.

 

Awareness of what?

 

Awareness of the inevitable consequences of an

Unlimited increase in power and greed.
