Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.
Today’s focus is on I Ching 1 – The Creative.
Heaven is over Heaven. Each alone represents
the sum total, and the source, of all power.
Together they can each be no more, or less.
The essence of all life expresses itself
in countless forms and non-forms. All energy
is creative, and energy is the essence of
all forms of life.
Aspects of creativity include origination,
development, perfection, and consummation.
Consummation refers to the creative act of
dissolving whatever has been created. A cycle
has been completed and now the energy or essence
of whatever was created will be used for some
other purpose. A new cycle begins. We move on.
We move on, but not necessarily forward.

earlier chapters of your life. The next chapter
is not, nor can it be, completely separated from
earlier chapters. This would result in
And that would suggest completion of a cycle
There are no cycles to our life, only to the
situations within it. Life, itself, is forever.
