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.

Between Beginnings and Endings

Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
hidden with the I Ching hexagram 46 – Rising.

Earth is over Wind. Both are Yin.
Rising follows Gathering (45) and moves into
Exhaustion (47).

Rising expresses upward movement, such as the Sun
seems to rise from the Eastern horizon, each morning,
wherever on Earth we may be. It then seems to reach
high into the sky, about mid-day, and then begins
to descend toward the Western horizon, arriving there
to end its daily journey, each evening.

How does that story relate to inspiration?

It teaches us that we live within a structured universe.
There are rules of order, known as Universal Laws.

How can knowing them help me, here and now, today?

Beginnings and endings are inevitable, but what happens
between the two reflects free will.

How?

We each choose.

What?

Not what, alone, but also how and why.

Rising follows Gathering

 

Spirit explains:

 

Rising expresses upward progress.

 

We’re on the way?

 

Where?

 

Somewhere.

 

We’re always on the way to somewhere.

 

And from somewhere?

 

Not necessarily.

 

How is it possible to be going somewhere without leaving somewhere?

 

When we travel inward, where are we coming from?

 

Outward.

 

Whose outward?

 

My own.

 

And whose inward whatever?

 

My own.

 

Yes.

Exhaustion follows rising.

 

Spirit explains:

Tides rise and we each rise

Only as high as we care to,

Unless we care enough

To rise as high as we can.

 

Low tide rises to the least

Possible output, while high tide

Rises as high as it can,

To the point of exhaustion.

People are as the tides, with

Some caring enough to give

All that they possibly can.

 

Where am I?

 

Yes.

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.
