Today’s I Ching is 39 – Halting.
Water over Mountain.
Halting follows Disharmony.
Spirit explains: Disharmony expresses lack of general
Consensus, disagreement, perhaps even different world
Views, different goals or needs.
Whatever; a way forward has been halted, brought to a
Stand-still. A mental road block can halt co-operation
And progress as effectively as one made of stone.
Today’s I Ching – 32 – Constancy.
Thunder over Wind – loud sound and moving air.
Constancy follows Sensing in the Hexagrams.
Spirit explains: Sensing is a form of intuition that isn’t clearly seen but, nevertheless,
Cannot be denied.
Signs of Spring in March. We seem to know that cold weather
Has not left us. Winter isn’t over, yet, even though mild weather
And Spring flowers delight us.
Where is constancy?
Winter is constant. It may offer signs of leaving, but these signs
May be no more than tests of our willingness to accept as true
What an inner knowing tells us is not.
Is there a personal message for me?
Yes, and for everyone else.
Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit
I Ching 23 – Downsizing.
Mountain over Earth
Downsizing follows Adornment in the order of the Hexagrams.
Simplicity may mean different things to different people, but
The concept of downsizing is generally understood.
Downsizing involves reducing whatever we have accumulated
That no longer seems to contribute to the quality of our life
As we now wish to live it.
Downsizing should never involve a reduction of personal values.
Perhaps it could involve selecting which of our collected treasures
We value more than some others.
Yes. What once was or may have seemed important may now
Seem less so.
What about people?
What about them?
May we also need to consider whom to stay close to and whom
Release? Are you holding on?
Spirit’s I Ching reading for today.
The Creative (I Ching 1) is a beginning and follows nothing.
Yesterday’s I Ching was 55 – Abundance, but not even abundance
Is ever complete in itself.. Creativity expands, alters, or destroys
Whatever must be expanded, altered, or destroyed in order to
Create what is to be.
Abundance is not unlimited abundance but creativity is
Unlimited and able to expand abundance to infinity.
There are no limits, He tells me, to either human or
Universal creativity, for we are one with the other and
Within the other.
Time does run out in individuals.
We each are beyond individuality.
But, down here at a grass roots level …
At whatever level.
But, here and now …
Here and now is where and when.
