Awareness reduces danger

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.

41 – Reduction – Mountain over Lake.

Mountains have height while lakes have depth, and yet
we measure deep and high from our own unique perspective.
That’s curious.

Why?

One mile or kilometre up or down is still the same distance.

It can make all the difference, if you applied the same
measure to progress along the way, any way.

Our life as a way?

Yes, a chosen, more or less, way to live. And, as mountains
and lakes, the ground beneath is rarely even. It dips and
climbs in irregular intervals and to irregular degrees.

But, in a boat on top of the lake?

I think you know from personal experience how an ocean
surface can become dangerously unpredictable.

Yes, terrifyingly so.

So it is with mountains. There is always a risk of uncertainty.
Landslides, mudslides rock slides, and avalanches, to name
a few possible dangers that may present themselves with little
or no warning.

You’re going to relate all this talk to Reduction. How?

Knowing possible risks and still choosing to follow a path,
any path through life, is only foolish if you do not first
prepare for whatever you might have to face along the way.

How can I know?

What?

How to possibly prepare for what has not yet happened?

Awareness.

Of what?

Awareness of your own strengths and weaknesses, based on …

Study and experience?

Yes, and that awareness will reduce the potential dangers
along the way of life.

Spirit’s I Ching 57 – Wind

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit

Wind follows Travel

 

Spirit explains:

 

Travel and Wind each express movement, but each in its own way.

Wind, though variable in force and direction, is limited to movement of

Matter, without capacity to choose what it moves or how far.

 

Travel suggests intentional movement from one place to

Another, or from one condition to another.

 

Another, important difference between Travel and Wind is that

The wind can change direction and revisit where it had once been.

 

Only physical travel allows for return, and even then, never as

One was before moving or being moved.

 

Subjective states of mind, such as thought and emotion, can

Also travel, moved by outer or inner forces, with or without

Personal control.

 

Study, prayer, meditation, and contemplation are, more or less,

Self-directed ways of travel that require intention to direct or

Seek direction in both a physical and non-physical form.

 

What can be both physical and non-physical in form?

 

A lifestyle.
