There Are No Cycles To Our Life

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.

What does that say to me, now that I have
left a stressful chapter in my life?
Where do I go from here?

You turn the page. A new chapter will begin.
It has begun.

But, it hasn’t been created, yet.

Perhaps not, but the outline has been. All
that you now are has been developed throughout
earlier chapters of your life. The next chapter
is not, nor can it be, completely separated from
earlier chapters. This would result in
discontinuity.

And that would suggest completion of a cycle
of life?

There are no cycles to our life, only to the
situations within it. Life, itself, is forever.

The moment lasts forever

Spirit’s I Ching wisdom for today: 20 – Observing.

To observe is to witness and there is no such possibility
as being a non-participating witness.

Whatever we witness, we are a part of. We absorb the
reality of whatever situation we are witness to.

We open to it or we close up to it. We back away from
or move forward, if only in our mind.

We respond, or we react.

What if …

There are no what ifs that could excuse you from
accepting responsibility.

How could I be responsible if I’m just a witness?

You are responsible for your response.

Even if I don’t recognize the significance of
what I witness until later?

We live in the moment.

The message?

The moment lasts forever.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Today’ I Ching Reading by Spirit – 5 – Waiting

Waiting follows Immaturity in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Immaturity doesn’t last forever. We learn and grown,

Each in our own time and in our own way.

 

Waiting until we are more prepared to face

Whatever challenges Life presents us with,

Doesn’t work.

 

We must live each day as we now are.

 

The message?

 

We develop maturity with intention and practice,

Not by waiting.

 

I Ching 39 – Halting

Today’s I Ching – 39 – Halting

Water above

Thunder below

Halting follows Disharmony in the

Order of the Hexagrams.

 

Is Spirit playing a game?

What game? The cards were

Well shuffled, and yet,

Today’s 39 goes back by one,

Yesterday’s 40, as if

Reversing the order of

Cause and effect, or,

To study the cause of

The cause.  This game

Could go back to

The beginning.

 

Spirit explains:

There never was and never will be

A beginning, and, the game goes on

Forever.
