How many times?

Spirit’s I Ching 14 – Great Possession

Fire is over Heaven.

Fire expresses emotion out of control, or with great potential
to move in that direction. Heaven represents self-controlled
power and stability.

We’re into Yin and Yang again?

We can never leave the concepts of extremes of emotion
and control.

Why?

These are as boundaries within which we live.

Are they the same for everyone?

Yes and no.

Why yes?

We each choose the boundaries of our comfort or
safety zone, within which we live our life
our way.

And no?

Some dare to accept that self-imposed boundaries
can be expanded, without necessarily leaving
the situation or relationship the boundaries
enclose.

Why not just leave and start again?

How many times?

Blessings may not last

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom

14 – Great Possession

Great Possession develops out of Community and leads to Humility, if we accept the blessing that associating with others is, when we are fortunate and wise enough to develop close ties with people who share our way of life.

What is our way? Is it a shared world view? Or a specific goal? Or what? And, how can we ever know who is really with us, and why?

So many questions.

They seemed to appear in my mind, one after another, in a continuous stream.

Without pause?

Without pause.

Then, how can they be answered separately?

Perhaps their answers would all be as one.

As companions and community?

I guess.

Then enjoy and be thankful to Life for whatever blessings come, while they last, and accept that whatever comes may go, for whatever reason.

Community is a valuable resource if…

Spirit’s I Ching for today is 14 – Great Possession, which follows

Association in the order of the hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains: Community is a valuable resource if the people

We choose to associate with express values similar to our own.

 

There is always a danger, He cautions. When anyone possess

Something of great value, there are always some others who

Would, if they could, and they do, when opportunities seem to

Allow, to pretend friendship with those with great possessions,

With  intent to exploit that association for their own benefit, alone.

 

What great possessions are we talking about?

 

We?

 

You.

 

Great possessions are potential or realized resources and may

Include one, some, or all of material, intellectual, emotional, or

Spiritual energies.

 

If this is a personal reading…

 

And it is.

 

Then, what great possession do I have that could or would attract

False friends?

 

Yes.

 

 

I Ching 14 – Great Possession

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit

Water over Heaven (water refers to emotion, while heaven

suggests creative energy).

 

Great Possession follows Association with Others.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Community is an integral part of Life’s purpose.. The need or

Desire to associate connects us to others. This serves basic

Survival needs, as well as providing emotional satisfaction.

 

Association with others is a great possession or it isn’t,

Depending upon whom we choose to associate with.

 

How can we know with whom to associate?

 

For what purpose?

 

A sense of community.

 

What kind of community?

 

A community of like-minded souls.

 

In the same way we learn anything, through experience.

 

That could take a lot of time and pain.

 

Yes. Some learn quicker than do others.

 

 

I Ching 14 – Great Possession

Today’s I Ching – 14 – Great Possession

Fire over Heaven.

Great Possession follows Association with Others.

 

Spirit explains:

 

We were not designed to be always alone.

We need community; to give to and to

Receive from, sharing and caring.

 

The greatest possible possession is to

Be as one with all, and yet be unique.

 

I Ching 14 – Great Possession

Today’s I Ching – 14 – Great Possession

Fire above, Heaven below.

Great Possession follows Association with others

In the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

In Association with Others, Fire reaches up

Toward Heaven, giving thanks for blessings

Received.

In Great Possession, Fire has assumed

A position above Heaven. This is

Inappropriate, and suggests

A lack of awareness that Heaven

(Spirit) can move through Fire

(my zodiac sign), or

Whatever, to restore a more

Appropriate relationship.

 

Where do great possessions

Come into the picture?

 

Material possessions are

Temporary illusions. The

Real treasure is a respectful

Relationship with Spirit.
