Rainbows Appear After Storms

A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
contained within the I Ching Hexagram 12 – Obstruction.

Heaven is the most powerful yang trigram and is above Earth,
which is the most powerful yin trigram.

Obstruction usually suggests something blocking the way, and
yet the way is usually forward; not up or down.

The way up or down also makes sense.

But, in speaking of enlightenment, surely up and ahead sounds
more like progress than would down or back.

That would depend upon how one defined progress.

I’ve distracted you from the reading.

No; only yourself.

Then, please explain what situation or experience Obstruction refers to.

It can refer to someone interrupting me.

Other than that, and in the context of I Ching.

Obstruction emerges out of the peaceful relationship expressed
by Tranquility (11) and necessarily contributes to Association
with Others (13).

There can be no obstruction unless there is someone or something blocking our way?

Yes.

So, where does a rainbow come into the picture?

What picture?

The scenario that you seem to be presenting about a calm before
a storm, and then a gathering, or celebration.

When do rainbows appear?

After a storm, if they appear at all.

Yes.

What does that mean?

It means we can sit around and do nothing or we can struggle
toward a desired future that may never come.

But, our desired future is much less likely to come without
struggle?

Yes.

I Ching 12 – Obstruction

Today’s I Ching – 12 – Obstruction

Heaven above. Earth below.

Obstruction follows Tranquility.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Tranquility  suggests calm seas and a gentle breeze.

Whatever obstruction was in the past in not now.

Storms have blown themselves out or away.

 

This is a time of peace and yet  we know that other storms

Will surely come. They are part of what Life is, experience,

And serve to teach us strengths, and inform us of

Our weaknesses.

 

Hang in there?

 

Yes.
