Between Beginnings and Endings

Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
hidden with the I Ching hexagram 46 – Rising.

Earth is over Wind. Both are Yin.
Rising follows Gathering (45) and moves into
Exhaustion (47).

Rising expresses upward movement, such as the Sun
seems to rise from the Eastern horizon, each morning,
wherever on Earth we may be. It then seems to reach
high into the sky, about mid-day, and then begins
to descend toward the Western horizon, arriving there
to end its daily journey, each evening.

How does that story relate to inspiration?

It teaches us that we live within a structured universe.
There are rules of order, known as Universal Laws.

How can knowing them help me, here and now, today?

Beginnings and endings are inevitable, but what happens
between the two reflects free will.

How?

We each choose.

What?

Not what, alone, but also how and why.

Meeting is never random

I Ching 45 – Gathering

Lake over Earth.

Gathering follows Meeting in the order of the hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:  A meeting is more than a gathering.

It is a gathering with a purpose, a shared purpose.

 

Why does meeting come before gathering?

 

We cannot gather without first meeting.

 

Whether we know the people we are meting, or not?

 

Meeting is never random.

 

Even if we have never met before?

 

Yes.

 

 

 

Spirit explains I Ching 27 – Nourishment

Nourishment follows Accumulation.

Accumulations are as harvests; the successful outcome of

Sowing seeds, caring for them as they develop, and then

Gathering in the results of our efforts.

Our body and soul each need nourishment,

But, what sustains them each is different, as is

The process, order, and method by which

They each thrive or do not.

Please explain.

Our physical body (for those of us who are now

Experiencing a physical reality), requires that

Nourishment is taken in from the environment

Of matter.

Our soul is nourished, more or less, by how

It expresses itself. shares its essence with

Other souls, simply by living a life we know

We must live, and by caring for and encouraging

Others to find and follow their way.

Questions?

No.

I Ching 45 – Gathering

 

Today’s I Ching – 45 – Gathering

Lake above. Earth below.

Gathering follows Meeting.

 

Spirit explains:

Rivers and streams flow downward, but

The origin of some are higher than that

Of others, and yet they meet as one.

 

Perhaps they were as one to begin with.

 

Yes.

 

I Ching 46 – Rising

Today’s I Ching – 46 – Rising

Earth above, Wind below.

Rising follows Gathering in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains: Whenever people gather together

To share ideas and experiences,

Both individually and collectively,

Their knowledge and awareness

Rises, both in quantity and quality.

 

Mutual support is both

A blessing and

A sacred responsibility.

 

I ask Spirit what His reading

Says to me.

 

Yes.
