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
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.
We each choose.
Not what, alone, but also how and why.
Today’s I Ching – 47 – Rising
Rising follows Gathering
Rising expresses upward progress.
We’re on the way?
We’re always on the way to somewhere.
And from somewhere?
How is it possible to be going somewhere without leaving somewhere?
When we travel inward, where are we coming from?
And whose inward whatever?
Today’s I Ching – 47 – Exhaustion
Exhaustion follows rising.
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?
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.
