Rising is followed by Exhaustion

Spirit explains I Ching 46 – Rising

Rising follows Gathering in the order
of the hexagrams, and whatever is
gathered or gathers together rises,
at least in quantity.

What about quality?

What about it?

I like to think of rising as expressing
an upward momentum.

It does.

But, how could anything increasing in
negativity express an upward movement?

For example?

The rainy season has begun, or threatens to.

What is negative about a rainy season?

My beloved summer season is over.

It, too, rose until it reached
a predetermined limit to its rising.
Rising is and must be followed by
Exhaustion, as will be the rainy season.

Is there a personal message for me?

Yes. You have been impatient.

Spirit explains I Ching 43

Today’s I Ching – 43 – Removal.

Removal follows Increase.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Removal expresses predetermined and forceful action

To reduce or eliminate something or someone. Increase

Does not continue forever.

 

Increase in what? Removal of what? And, by whom or what?

 

Cause and effect serve Life to limit excesses of power and greed.

 

Whose power? Whose greed?

 

Not whose, as in suggesting someone other than self.

Everyone is guilty of wanting, or thinking they need,

More and more of more and more of whatever.

 

Perhaps it’s in our nature?

 

Yes, and so is the solution.

 

Which is?

 

Awareness.

 

Awareness of what?

 

Awareness of the inevitable consequences of an

Unlimited increase in power and greed.

 

 

 

 

 

I Ching 51 – Thunder

Spirit shares his understanding of I Ching 51 – Thunder

Thunder above, Thunder below.

Thunder follows Cauldron in the order of the Hexagrams.

The order of the Hexagrams expresses the Universal Law of Causality. Nothing comes from nothing. All situations develop from a previous situation. How they develop and what they develop into is not entirely predetermined. Free will and choice, as well as Destiny contribute to the outcome. How we choose can be the result of habit, or awareness and intent to develop our own way through life situations not necessarily of our own choosing.

The message?

Thunder is never silent.

I’m allowed to complain?

It seems to be in your nature to do so.
