Movement Has No Purpose of its Own

A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom

Contained within I Ching 56 – Travel.

In the order of the hexagrams, Travel follows Abundance (55)

And transforms itself into Wind (57), or has the potential to do so,

If we only travel because of restlessness.

The trigram Fire is above Mountain. Fire is Yin energy

Mountain is yang.

 

Isn’t that curious?

 

What?

 

That yin Fire moves while yang Mountain is placid.

 

Mountains are never placid. A calm exterior can contain

Dynamic energy. Now can we continue with the reading?

 

Please do.

 

Fire moves, or at least has potential to move

Mountains are generally known for their stability.

If we travel from and then return to a mountain,

We can usually be confident that it will be where we left it.

A fire may have moved on and created destruction.

 

What general message would this reading seem to suggest?

 

Travel is only movement if it has no purpose.

 

Going Nowhere is an Illusion

Spirit shares I Ching wisdom.

Today’s message relates to Travel, hexagram 57.
Life experiences develop out of previous life
experiences and lead to future life experiences,
within an endless loop that expands.

We never return to an earlier experience,
even when we do, if we do. Something has
changed and so have we.

Our understanding of ourselves grows, as does
our understanding of the world we live in,
and everyone and everything within that world,
within our world.

The problem arises or, rather, problems arise
when we resist our own awareness of the changes
in our relationship to the changing world
we call our way of life.

We stumble when we fail to notice detour signs.
Things are never as they never were.

We see with an inner eye, while safe travel
requires looking ahead with an outer focus
of attention.

Illusion is created, self-created. It does not
exist in itself in any form.

Like the song, “A man sees what he wants to see
and disregards the rest?”

Yes, but the rest is still there, whether we
focus on it or not.

You’re getting close to home.

Yes. Perhaps our travels in the physical world
are or can be used as a diversion; an excuse
to avoid inner challenges to inward travel.

Wow! And the message?

Travel is a necessity of life, whether we go
anywhere, and we cannot go nowhere. That is
an illusion.

Even to imagine that we are or might be going
nowhere is an illusion?

Yes.

Within and without together

Spirit’s I Ching as a way to enlightenment

56 – Travel
Fire over Mountain

Fire moves, or at least has the potential to do so, while mountains are
generally known for their stability. If we travel from and return to a mountain, we can be confident that it will be where it was when we left it.
But, a fire may have moved on and created destruction as it moved.

Travel develops out of Abundance and transforms itself into Wind. or has the potential to do so if we only travel because of restlessness, without a purpose or goal.

Abundance suggests possessing much more than is necessary to satisfy survival needs. Without struggle there is a danger of life becoming meaningless.

Abundance can also provide us with an opportunity to travel, both within and without.

Not either, or?

We necessarily travel both ways at one time.

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.

 

 

Today’s I Ching – 57 – Wind

Wind follows Travel in the order of the Hexagrams.

 

Spirit explains:

 

When we travel we must adapts to

Changing situations.

 

We are always travelling, He tells me, through Life,

Without ever not being Life itself.

 

Is there a personal message for me?

 

Are you separate?

 

No.

 

I Ching 17 – Following

Today’s I Ching – 17 – Following

Lake above. Thunder below.

Following follows Delight.

 

Spirit explains:

 

We are all following something or someone.

We choose the path of temporary delight,

Success, adventure, learning, or whatever.

We travel alone or with others,

Intentionally or …

 

There is no or, He corrects Himself.

At some level of consciousness, we choose.

 

The message?

 

Why do you follow me?

 

You seem to know where I need to go.

 

Yes.

 

 

 

I Ching 57 – Wind

Today’s I Ching – 57 – Wind

 

Wind above, Wind below.

Wind follows Travel.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Wind travels and so do we. The difference can be,

But not necessarily is, that outside forces

Always determine when and where

The wind travels, and how quickly.

 

Self-determination?

 

What about it?

 

Does it exist?

 

No.
