Degeneration as a Universal Law

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom:

I Ching 17 – Following.
Lake is above Thunder.

Following follows Delight (16)
and leads to Degeneration (18).

The way of delight leading
to disaster?

Not necessarily so.

Please explain.

Delight in itself is neutral
as far as ethical outcome
is concerned.

Then it’s a matter of what
delights us?

Yes.

So, in the case of …

Yes?

I’m trying to express taking pleasure
or being pleased with activities
that bring pleasure to others
as well as to myself.

Go on.

In such a situation, how could
mutual pleasure lead to
degeneration?

Degeneration is a necessary part
of any outcome.

How?

It’s a Universal Law.

Then please explain how
this law works.

Everything changes.

When?

Continuously.

But, if shared pleasure is
an outcome then how can this
be considered as degenerating
anything or anybody?

When shared pleasure is increased
then displeasure or unhappiness
is decreased, or degenerated

The message?

That is the message.

We share the choice

Spirit shares I Ching Wisdom.

Hexagram 18 – Degeneration. Mountain (Yang) is over Wind (Yin).

Spirit explains: The 2nd line is Yang and the 5th line is Yin.
The fifth line is the line of leadership, and having a complement
on the second line provides for a sharing of this position of power.

But, if degeneration is the condition that they share …

How could it be otherwise?

I would like to think that any degenerating situation is
a result of masculine abuse of power.

That would be to deny the existence of feminine energy.

How?

How what?

How does masculine responsibility for whatever condition
or situation deny feminine energy.

Abdication of, or denial of, responsibility is, more or less,
acceptance of whatever situation or condition results from
such behaviour.

Are you trying to tell me that …

I am telling you that dynamic interaction requires
inequality; transient or otherwise, of each and all
of the individual energies in the choices we make.

We?

We share the choice.

And the outcome?

Yes.

Spirit explains I Ching 27 – Nourishment

Nourishment follows Accumulation.

Accumulations are as harvests; the successful outcome of

Sowing seeds, caring for them as they develop, and then

Gathering in the results of our efforts.

Our body and soul each need nourishment,

But, what sustains them each is different, as is

The process, order, and method by which

They each thrive or do not.

Please explain.

Our physical body (for those of us who are now

Experiencing a physical reality), requires that

Nourishment is taken in from the environment

Of matter.

Our soul is nourished, more or less, by how

It expresses itself. shares its essence with

Other souls, simply by living a life we know

We must live, and by caring for and encouraging

Others to find and follow their way.

Questions?

No.
