Rising is followed by Exhaustion

Spirit explains I Ching 46 – Rising

Rising follows Gathering in the order
of the hexagrams, and whatever is
gathered or gathers together rises,
at least in quantity.

What about quality?

What about it?

I like to think of rising as expressing
an upward momentum.

It does.

But, how could anything increasing in
negativity express an upward movement?

For example?

The rainy season has begun, or threatens to.

What is negative about a rainy season?

My beloved summer season is over.

It, too, rose until it reached
a predetermined limit to its rising.
Rising is and must be followed by
Exhaustion, as will be the rainy season.

Is there a personal message for me?

Yes. You have been impatient.

Karma is Different than Cause and Effect

Spirit explains I Ching 51 – Thunder

Thunder above and Thunder below, or
As above, so below.

Thunder makes a loud noise. It does not
present itself graciously or even politely.
but on its own terms, and in its own way,
forcefully, so as not to be ignored.

Why does it have to let the world know
that it’s here, when it is here.

Perhaps it is as a messenger being sent
from a high authority, to announce
an immanent arrival.

A storm?

Yes.

That makes sense, weather wise.

It makes sense and is a reality
in any situation.

How is it possible to be warned
ahead of time in situations of
emotional, social, political, or
environmental disasters?

It is a law of life or, as some
prefer, a universal law.

What law?

Causation, or Karma.

Are they both the same law?

Yes and no.

How do they differ?

Cause and effect are sequential.

And Karma?

It might bide its time or …

Or what?

We can change the way we think
and choose to live, and this would
then change our karma.

For better or worse?

Yes.

Wind over Water – I Ching 53

Spirit explains:

Wind moves over, around, under, or through whatever would block its way. It is in its nature to move, without regret, permission, or desire to accomplish anything other than to fulfill its nature to move.

That may be normal behaviour for winds, but what about people?

What about them?

Surely we need to think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, and what we hope to accomplish by doing it?

Why?

How can we not use our mind?

Yes.

I Ching 4 – Immaturity

Today’s I Ching – 4 – Immaturity

Mountain above. Water below.

Immaturity follows Difficulty in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

Everything is difficult until we learn how;

How to stand, how to walk, how to speak,, …

 

I interrupt. And how to think?

 

What to think, Spirit corrects me.

Immaturity is not necessarily

Forever, if the immature one

Has faith and guidance…

 

And trust?

 

Yes., but not misplaced trust.

 

How can I know…

 

Experience is required and

Life provides us with

All that we need.
