We Choose to Share, or Do We?

Spirit shares His understanding of the timeless wisdom
expressed within the I Ching Hexagram 18 – Degeneration.

Degeneration follows Following (17) and develops into
Overseeing (19).

Mountain (yang) is over Wind (yin).

Isn’t that curious?

That yang is above yin? or that Wind is below Mountain?

Neither.

Then, what is curious.

The construction of the hexagram.

What about the construction of the hexagram?

Mountain contains one yang holding down two yin
while Wind contains one yin holding up two yang.

It doesn’t work that way.

Then, how does it work?

Life works at its finest when we learn to care for
others; even those who seem to oppress us.

Where does Degeneration fit into this concept
of life.

The second line is yang and the fifth 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 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’m 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.

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.

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

Spirit’s I Ching 19 – Overseeing

Spirit explains:

 

Overseeing follows Degeneration, and yet, overseeing suggests

Accepting responsibility for what is happening under your care, or

Lack of care.

 

The message?

 

What have you done?

 

About what?

 

About the mess in your world.

 

I didn’t do it.

 

What have you done to undo it?

 

What can I do?

 

Witness.

 

I do, but how can that help?

 

It is a beginning.

 

And then what?

 

Find and share a better way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Ching 20 – Observing

Today’s I Ching – 20 – Observing

Wind above, Earth below.

Observing follows Overseeing

 

Spirit explains:

Observing is consciously watching someone or something;

Perhaps witnessing a situation as it happens, from

The perspective of one who is more or less uninvolved

In and impartial to the outcome.

 

However, if one is observing with responsibility

To oversee, as a teacher observes his or her

Student, then there is intent to guide and

Correct when it seems advisable to do so,

The intellectual and skills-development of

The student.

 

To be aware that You are aware?

 

Yes.

I Ching 46 – Rising

Today’s I Ching – 46 – Rising

Earth above, Wind below.

Rising follows Gathering in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains: Whenever people gather together

To share ideas and experiences,

Both individually and collectively,

Their knowledge and awareness

Rises, both in quantity and quality.

 

Mutual support is both

A blessing and

A sacred responsibility.

 

I ask Spirit what His reading

Says to me.

 

Yes.
