Awareness of Opportunities and How we Respond

Spirit shares I Ching Wisdom.

Hexagram 28 – Great Surpassing follows
Nourishment.

That makes sense.

What makes sense?

When and if we are well nourished,
the better we are able to develop
our physical potentials.

What about our intellectual,
emotional, and spiritual potentials?

Those, too. If parents have the means
to care for their children
as most surely would if they could,
then each new generation would have
the opportunity to develop beyond
where they might otherwise have gone.

How far back does it go?

What does that mean?

We can only do for our children
and our community what we are
able to do, now.

But …

Yes?

What if we are unaware of what
we can do for others, or might have
done for ourselves?

Then what?

Yes.

We each are responsible for how
we live our lives and the choices
we make, here and now.

Yesterday has gone?

Yes, and tomorrow is not yet here.

So, where does great surpassing
fit in?

Great surpassing can refer to
the quality of our attitude
in awareness of what was,
what may yet be, and what
opportunities are available
to us, now, and how we
respond to them.

I Ching 61 – Sincerity in the Centre

Sincerity follows Discipline in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Discipline, as self-control, and it is always self-control, for

Whatever reason, is not a value in itself. It is a means to an end.

 

What about Sincerity?

 

What about it?

 

Why does it follow Discipline?

 

It always follows Discipline.

 

Why?

 

If we are sincere in our intention to do or be whatever, then

Self-discipline must be followed.

 

 

 

I Ching 59 – Dispersal

Today’s I Ching – 59 – Dispersal

Wind above. Water below.

Dispersal follows Pleasing.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Pleasing others serves our own interests and can be intentional,

As a means to an end. Not all smiles are equal. Some are

Sincere while others are not.

 

Dispersal suggests scattering.

 

The message?

 

Do not scatter your thoughts, feelings, or energy.

These are, or can be, as precious gems.

Direct them with intention and wisdom.

 

To what?

 

To do good.
