Humility develops

Spirit explains I Ching 15 – Humility, which follows Great Possessions in the order of the Hexagrams. Earth over Mountain – or is it Mountain pushing up through Earth?

Humility, in it’s most sincere form, blended with awe and gratitude, can develop out of great possessions, when she who possesses abundance becomes aware that anything and everything we may or may not possess at any given time is doomed, or destined (depending upon one’s perspective), and is only ours while it is ours. What is becomes what was, sooner or later.

The good news is that pleasures and possessions can be enjoyed without clinging to them.

What does that mean for me?

Do you now have great possessions?
My lifestyle is a simple one.

Great possessions do not necessarily refer to material wealth.

Then, I am blessed with at least one great possession, Your teaching.

Yes.

Sincere humility expresses respect

Today’s I Ching – 16 – Delight, follows Humility.

 

Thunder over Earth. One Yang controls five Yin, or do

Five Yin compete to please one Yang?

 

Spirit explains: Humility expresses acceptance of being

Less than someone or something, or pretending to feel so.

 

Why would anyone pretend?

 

It might serve you well to pretend, until you are able to accept

The reality of the relationship in question. Then, He might

Choose to continue to teach you.

 

Is the message a personal one?

 

Yes.

 

 

I Ching 59 – Dispersal

Today’s I Ching – 59 – Dispersal

Wind above. Water below.

Dispersal follows Pleasing.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Pleasing others serves our own interests and can be intentional,

As a means to an end. Not all smiles are equal. Some are

Sincere while others are not.

 

Dispersal suggests scattering.

 

The message?

 

Do not scatter your thoughts, feelings, or energy.

These are, or can be, as precious gems.

Direct them with intention and wisdom.

 

To what?

 

To do good.

 

 

I Ching 23 – Stripping Away

Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping away

Stripping Away follows Adornment

 

Spirit explains:

 

Words of love can be sincere or as a glossy book cover that

May or may not describe the inner story.

 

But, I protest, an appealing cover or title may attract my

Attention.

 

What would attract you more, the title or the cover?

 

Both together, more or less – design and words that

Express each other.

 

So it is with our way of life.

 

How?

 

Our lifestyle habits express our inner life well,

Or they do not. It’s as simple as that.
