We Need Help to Overcome

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.

I Ching 13 – Association With Others follows
Obstruction and leads to Great Possession.

Obstruction suggests that something is blocking
our way.

Or someone?

It is never someone unless that someone is
our self, and it usually is.

We need help in overcoming whatever seems to
prevent us from following our spiritual path.

What if the community we now associate with
is itself the means of obstructing
our spiritual development.

Isolation is not the answer.

Isn’t meditation a form of isolation?

No.

How is it not?

Meditation is time out to reflect on
the situation and seek higher guidance
to develop awareness.

Develop awareness of what?

Of how to best contribute to our own
spiritual development without
unnecessarily obstructing the
development of others.

Looking at it from that perspective …

That is the only perspective.

Then, we could be obstructing those
who seem to be …

Yes.

Then how to overcome obstruction in a way
that leads to community?

Meditation.

And then?

Follow your heart.

And mind?

No, not in this instance.

Why?

Mind will overwhelm you with reasons
to stay.

To stay where?

Not where, what.

Then what?

Obstructed.

But, if obstruction is the problem …

Obstruction is a challenge. It doesn’t
exist in a material or physical form.
Not everyone would see the same
situation as an obstruction. We need
to change the way we see.

How?

By looking within for the answers
to life’s challenges.

What about community?

For that, too.

I Ching Wisdom – Respect the visions from the timeless past

Spirit explains I Ching 52 – Mountain.

Mountain follows Thunder and will be followed by Gradual Progress.

As the seasons of our life each follow the one that came
Before it, so it is with each generation of Seekers of
The Way. We cannot be, see, or do as any other previous one.

The seasons, the years, and the generations each owe to
The past their very existence, and yet, there is continuity
Without sameness.

We each see and understand as no-one else, if we dare to see
From where we alone are, while respecting the visions of the
Elders, mentors, and teachers from the timeless past.

Wow! And the message for me?

Yes.

I Ching 11 – Tranquility

Today’s I Ching is Tranquility, an atmosphere of peace and

Contentment.

 

Tranquility follows Treading, which is movement. Now it is

Time for rest, but not a prolonged time of inactivity.

 

The I Ching teaches us that Life expands and moves.

 

Is there a personal message?

 

Yes.

 

What is it?

 

There is no need to hurry. We will arrive where we intend to,

When we intend to.

 

Where?

 

Wait and see.
