I Ching Wisdom – Respect the visions from the timeless past

Spirit explains I Ching 52 – Mountain.

Mountain follows Thunder and will be followed by Gradual Progress.

As the seasons of our life each follow the one that came
Before it, so it is with each generation of Seekers of
The Way. We cannot be, see, or do as any other previous one.

The seasons, the years, and the generations each owe to
The past their very existence, and yet, there is continuity
Without sameness.

We each see and understand as no-one else, if we dare to see
From where we alone are, while respecting the visions of the
Elders, mentors, and teachers from the timeless past.

Wow! And the message for me?

Yes.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

I Ching 48 – The Well

Today’s I Ching – 48 – The Well

Well follows Exhaustion.

 

Spirit explains:

There is continuity in life. We never get to where we are or

To become what we are without first having somewhere of

Something else.

 

The Well expresses life-giving energy. Water sustains life

Without conscious awareness of doing so, simply by being

What it is.

 

The message? Somehow I suspect it will be deep and yet

Simple to understand.

 

Yes. Be who and what you are. You can be no other and

Still be real.
