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.

Stress as exercise

Today’s I Ching – 53 – Gradual Progress, follows Mountain.

 

Spirit explains: An easy path to follow is no challenge to our

Physical, emotional, intellectual, or spiritual potential capacities

For growth.

 

Physical muscles require exercise in order to expand. Stress is a

Similar process to exercise, and can contribute to emotional,

Intellectual, and spiritual expansion. Of course, as with physical

Exercise, too much stress defeats its purpose.

 

A mountain can express an end-of-the-line obstruction

Or no more than a challenge to our progress.

 

Is there a personal message for me?

 

Yes. Stop complaining and keep moving forward and

Upward. Gradual progress is still progress.
