Humility develops

Spirit explains I Ching 15 – Humility, which follows Great Possessions in the order of the Hexagrams. Earth over Mountain – or is it Mountain pushing up through Earth?

Humility, in it’s most sincere form, blended with awe and gratitude, can develop out of great possessions, when she who possesses abundance becomes aware that anything and everything we may or may not possess at any given time is doomed, or destined (depending upon one’s perspective), and is only ours while it is ours. What is becomes what was, sooner or later.

The good news is that pleasures and possessions can be enjoyed without clinging to them.

What does that mean for me?

Do you now have great possessions?
My lifestyle is a simple one.

Great possessions do not necessarily refer to material wealth.

Then, I am blessed with at least one great possession, Your teaching.

Yes.

Spirit’s I Ching 57 – Wind

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit

Wind follows Travel

 

Spirit explains:

 

Travel and Wind each express movement, but each in its own way.

Wind, though variable in force and direction, is limited to movement of

Matter, without capacity to choose what it moves or how far.

 

Travel suggests intentional movement from one place to

Another, or from one condition to another.

 

Another, important difference between Travel and Wind is that

The wind can change direction and revisit where it had once been.

 

Only physical travel allows for return, and even then, never as

One was before moving or being moved.

 

Subjective states of mind, such as thought and emotion, can

Also travel, moved by outer or inner forces, with or without

Personal control.

 

Study, prayer, meditation, and contemplation are, more or less,

Self-directed ways of travel that require intention to direct or

Seek direction in both a physical and non-physical form.

 

What can be both physical and non-physical in form?

 

A lifestyle.

 

 

I Ching 61 – Sincerity in the Centre

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit

 

Wind over Lake

Sincerity follows Discipline

 

Spirit explains:

 

As wind moves water, discipline moves sincerity,

Directing our chosen lifestyle.

 

If we sincerely desire and intend to follow our path

With purpose, then discipline will be a welcome

Companion.

 

I hesitate to ask who …

 

Yes.

 

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit

I Ching 55 – Abundance. Thunder is over Fire.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Thunder suggests an abundance of rain.

Fire suggests and abundance of light and heat.

 

Both thunder and fire create and are created by

Movement. Something changes. Something always changes.

 

Abundance expresses blessings far beyond survival needs.

 

Why do I not experience such a lifestyle?

 

You do.

 

I’m not aware of it.

 

Yes.

I Ching, 55, abundance, thunder, fire, abundance, rain, light, heat, create, movement, changes, blessings, beyond, survival, needs, Spirit, lifestyle, aware.

I Ching 24 – Return

Today’s I Ching – 24 – Return

Return follows Stripping Away.

 

Spirit explains:

Stripping away is removing that which is unnecessary and

No longer serves us well. Return suggests going back to

An earlier way of life.

 

The message?

 

We can never go back. The clutter that we have created

Is from an earlier lifestyle. Now we must let it go and

Move forward.

 

Where?

 

Into the future, our future, as we create it, and

Let the past stay in the past.

 

I Ching 23 – Stripping Away

Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping away

Stripping Away follows Adornment

 

Spirit explains:

 

Words of love can be sincere or as a glossy book cover that

May or may not describe the inner story.

 

But, I protest, an appealing cover or title may attract my

Attention.

 

What would attract you more, the title or the cover?

 

Both together, more or less – design and words that

Express each other.

 

So it is with our way of life.

 

How?

 

Our lifestyle habits express our inner life well,

Or they do not. It’s as simple as that.
