The Importance of Discipline

Spirit shares His understanding of the timeless
wisdom of the I Ching hexagram 60 – Discipline.

Water is over Lake.
Water is Yang and Lake is Yin.

Discipline follows Dispersal (59) and develops
into Sincerity (61).

Dispersal describes scattering; a disorganized
movement of whatever.

Water over Lake strongly suggests flooding;
a disorganized movement of water, or emotion.

Where is discipline?

Obviously, it is missing.

Is that a personal comment?

Yes.

Spirit’s I Ching way – 59 Dispersal

Wind over Water
Dispersal develops out of Pleasing and dissolves with Discipline.

Dispersal results in both disconnecting from the past and connecting to the future, without necessarily understanding either, or the destiny that moves within us, as the wind moves around us.

How can there be any stability and a feeling of being here and now in such a view of reality?

It isn’t a view of reality. It is as it is.

But, I need to hold on to my past while reaching for my future.

My as in individual?

Yes, and even if it proves to be an illusion, I need it, now.

Yes.

Spirit’s I Ching 59 – Dispersal

Dispersal follows Pleasing.

 

Spirit explains:

 

We cannot always choose where to be born, where to live, or

Where to die. There are forces beyond our personal control

That influence our lives.

 

We can call these forces by many names; Fate, Destiny, Karma,

Chance, Chaos, the Hand of God, whatever, and we may not be

Pleased by the power they have over us.

 

Dispersal suggests a disorganized scattering, as seeds by

Wind. We may not have chosen to be where we are, now,

In our life’s journey, but we are responsible for how we live,

Wherever we are.

 

Is there any good news?

 

Yes. We choose how we live the life we have, here and now.

 

 

 

I Ching 59 – Dispersal

Today’s I Ching – 59 – Dispersal

Wind above. Water below.

Dispersal follows Pleasing.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Pleasing others serves our own interests and can be intentional,

As a means to an end. Not all smiles are equal. Some are

Sincere while others are not.

 

Dispersal suggests scattering.

 

The message?

 

Do not scatter your thoughts, feelings, or energy.

These are, or can be, as precious gems.

Direct them with intention and wisdom.

 

To what?

 

To do good.

 

 

I Ching 60 – Discipline

Today’s I Ching – 60 – Discipline

Water above, Lake below.

Discipline follows Dispersal in the order of the Hexagrams.

Spirit explains: Dispersal suggests a scattering, an absence of discipline, self

or otherwise, a lack of focus or organization, and

can refer to animals, people, or ideas.

To gather anything together, He stresses,

requires discipline, preferably, self-discipline,

and intent..

I do not ask Him what this says to me.

I don’t want to know.
