Spirit’s I Ching message for today;
The traditional reading of the I Ching Hexagram 54 – Marrying a Young Woman seems to place a woman in a position of servitude to an older man. In the context of social and cultural relationships this attitude is changing.
In a deeper sense of yin and yang, from a spiritual and enlightenment perspective, yang dominance, in this instance, refers to a necessarily voluntary yin-type submission of the seeker to the mystical essence of timeless truths, and to personally chosen, dedicated teachers of those truths.
Through the marriage of present insights and levels of understanding with perennial wisdom, the future of enlightenment is co-created.
All that is, was, or will be can only be created from a blend of new and old; what is and what was, together become what will be.
NOTE: I PERSONALLY HAVE ALWAYS, IT SEEMS, HAD A PROBLEM WITH THIS HEXAGRAM. IT SEEMED TO PORTRAY SUCH AN OFFENSIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD WOMEN. WHY DID SPIRIT NOT HELP ME TO SEE A DEEPER MEANING BEFORE NOW? PERHAPS I WAS NOT YET READY TO STEP BACK OR LOOK DEEPER THAN MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES DURING THIS LIFETIME. I THANK SPIRIT FOR MY MORE EXPANDED UNDERSTANDING. JEAN
