Spirit shares His understanding of the timeless wisdom
expressed in the I Ching hexagram 51 – Thunder.
Thunder above and Thunder below. Thunder is a powerful
yang energy alone, and in this instance expresses double
the power it would have, alone.
But, even with all the power that Thunder possesses,
it doesn’t create itself.
Nothing ever does.
Couldn’t the situation create thunder?
The situation created by lightning.
Lightning creates nothing.
Then, the situation caused by lightning.
Thunder is part of the situation caused by lightning.
But, not a direct effect?
Which comes first?
Thunder follows lightning.
What does lightning follow?
I don’t know.
If there is a personal message …
And, there is.
Then, what can it be?
Everything and every situation is intimately
interconnected to a wider reality.
How can knowing that help me here and now?
There is no here and now. That is the message.
