I Ching 30 – Clinging
Spirit explains: Clinging is composed of Fire over Fire and follows
Double Danger. This situation has been described as being
Between a rock and a hard place.
Fire does not easily let go of whomever or whatever it is
Clinging to. The best protection is prevention.
The second best?
How is it possible to avoid a danger that threatens
Those whom you love?
Yes, it is not.
Then we each must choose how to respond.
Some form of intervention?
Yes. It is both necessary and unavoidable.
Association with Others follows Obstruction.
Obstructions, both within and without, are a necessary
Part of life experience..
Seemingly impossible difficulties encourage us to become
Aware that we need to co-operate, to associate with others
For mutually beneficial results. We each help ourselves by
Helping others to co-create a more harmonious future, together.
How can we cooperate with those who will not?
A river moves where it can. Rock blocks the river’s flow,
Obstructing its forward movement. The river cannot flow
Through the rock, but it must flow, if only upward and around.
If you were as a river, and we all are, then what is
Blocking your path and how do you plan to move
Around this obstruction?
The answer might be easy if Life provided only one
Obstruction at a time.
Life never promises easy.
And what if I am…?
That can never be.
I am the force that moves the river.
And I am the river?
Today’s I Ching – 62 – Small Excess – Thunder over Mountain.
Spirit asks me if we can walk through a mountain.
Only if someone blows a tunnel through it.
The mountain of our mind.
How is it like a mountain (and, yes, I know I’m walking
Seemingly solid, but really only dense.
A fog is not rock.
