I Ching 16 – Delight

Today’s I Ching – 16 – Delight

Thunder above, Earth below

Delight follows Humility in

The order of the Hexagrams.

Spirit explains:

To be aware of how far

We have come, and yet, to know there is still

A long way to go, is to feel humility.

We can, Spirit tells me, take delight in how far

We have come, without losing a sense of

Humility when looking ahead.

The message? I ask.

Look back, He tells me, at What you have left,

But not to focus on what you have left,

But to measure how far you have come

Along The Way, along Our Way.

I Ching 30 – Clinging

Today’s I Ching – 30 – Clinging

Fire above, Fire below.

Clinging follows Double Danger in the order of the Hexagrams.

Spirit explains:

Double danger is moving from danger into greater danger.

Fire over fire suggests the direction we have taken.

Now what? I ask, sensing a personal message.

Open your eyes and your mind, He tells me.

We must look back, now and then, to see

Where we have come from.

Are we moving uphill or down?

Without looking back we can’t measure our progress.

I think I get  the message, approval of

My moments of nostalgia.
