Beneath the Surface of Cause and Effect

A Spirit teacher shares His understanding
of the situation expressed by the I Ching
hexagram 56 – Travel.

Fire is over Mountain.

Travel follows abundance (55) and is itself
followed by Wind (57).

There is a time to move forward and a time
when moving is unwise. Fire travels if and
when it can.

If we seek to follow the advice of the text …

And we do, or at least some of us.

Then, how can we know.

What?

When to move and when to resist moving.

Expanded awareness.

Of what?

Of the situation in question.

Do all situations possess a potential
for movement?

Yes, and more.

What more?

The inevitability of movement.

Cause and effect?

Not necessarily, but cause and effect
are more easily understood than
the underlying impetus to continuous
movement.

The underlying impetus?

Yes.

What could it be?

Destiny.

Spirit’s I Ching 21 – Biting Through

Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit – 21

Biting Through follows Observing.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Everyone interacts with the world they live in, the world that we

Seem to know we are part of. And, yet, many of us observe

This world as being outside of ourselves. This is an illusion

That we must learn to bite through.

 

The skin of an apple is often firm and yet, if we bite through

This protective layer we reach the tasty fruit that waits for us,

Just beneath the surface; our reward for the effort taken.

 

Why do I sometimes feel that I am more a part of the

Outer skin than of the inner reality?

 

Perhaps we all live on the surface of Life, with some of us

Being more aware than are others of how deep our roots

Reach down and dissolve into Life itself, to become nutrients

For our future.

 

It sounds deep.

 

It is deep, and we are part of it.
