Spirit’s Daily I Ching Reading
Water over Fire
Settled follows Small Excess
The yin and yang forces in water and fire balance each other,
Creating harmony. This is a settled social condition.
Small excesses do no harm. There are checks and balances
Within any society or social group. These are designed and
Prepared to maintain a more or less settled order.
Or you drown my fire?
Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping Away
Mountain above. Earth below.
Stripping Away follows Adornment.
Adornment suggests excess of what is functionally necessary.
Stripping away reduces some of this excess.
It is time, He tells me, for a new beginning; to live a more
Simple and uncluttered lifestyle. The way we live should
Express both our inner and outer values, in harmony with
How is that possible, without the material means to express
Oneself as one would?
Then we do what we can with what we have. And, He suggests,
There are always areas of excess in our lives.
Excess of inactivity could be reduced with exercise.
I give up.
