Spirit shares His understanding of I Ching 43 – Removal.

Lake is over Heaven. Lake is the youngest Yin and
Heaven is the most powerful Yang.

Yin, in this instance is as a butterfly on a rock.
What interaction or common ground can the two share?
Frail over solid.

A rock is not easily crushed or moved, but neither can
it move itself, while a butterfly is easily crushed but
it has power to move itself out of danger; lightness
and mobility over power and immobility.

Removal follows Increase and develops into Meeting.

That’s a curious sequential order.

How so?

I can understand that increase can become clutter and
requiring downsizing, or removal of whatever no longer
serves us well, but how does this lead to Meeting?

Meeting is coming together.

With whom or what?

Awareness.

Of what?

Of what is necessary or desirable and useful, and what is
manufactured need.

How can need be manufactured?

Unethical advertising.

Attraction pulls as a pendulum?

Spirit’s I Ching wisdom for today: I Ching 42 – Increase.

Increase develops out of reduction. The pendulum reaches its extreme in either direction of expansion and then turns, as a railway or bus line between two limits of its route.

Whenever we reduce our position relative to whatever, we, at the same time, increase it to another. The Law of Attraction works according to this principle.

How did the Law of Attraction …

How does the Law of Attraction enter into the concept of increase?

Yes.

Whatever we attract moves our relationship from the opposite position.

What if we attract each other?

Then we have moved away from a position of being less attracted to each other.

There is a personal message, or question.

Yes.

Today as tomorrow’s illusion of yesterday

Spirit explains I Ching 42 – Increase

 

Wind over Thunder; strong Yin over stronger Yang.

Increase follows Reduction in the Hexagrams.

 

The order of the hexagrams expresses both continuity and

Change in situations, conditions, and individuals, and in

Their relationships with, and how they each respond to and

Influence the others.

 

Reduction implies that something is less than it once was.

Increase speaks for itself. Low and high tides follow each

Other in a continuous pattern that expresses both change

And continuity.

 

As with tides, so with all relationships. There is both change

And continuity. People come into our lives and then move out,

Or are moved out. We need to learn to let them go.

 

The reality of tomorrow cannot come until we release the

Illusion of yesterday.

 

Teacher, why is yesterday an illusion while tomorrow is

A reality?

 

Tomorrow is not a reality in itself, only a potential one, in

Our mind, as a hope for another, and possibly better, today.

But, before that can happen, we must let today become

Yesterday.

 

Then today becomes tomorrow’s illusion of yesterday?

 

Yes.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

I Ching 42 – Increase

Today’s I Ching – 42 – Increase

Wind above (first daughter)

Thunder below (first son)

To me it looks like a sibling war.

Increase follows Reduction in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

Oh, oh. Spirit seems aware of my thoughts. What thoughts? The cynical notion, idea that, perhaps, if   what you have has been reduced enough then the only way to go is up. Spirit seems to think that frugality and simplicity are sacred ways of living, even in the physical world. I disagree.

 

Now, to the reading.

 

Spirit is not impressed with my, perhaps, less than respectful observation, and tells me that there will be no reading.

 

A power trip?

 

Yes.
