Coming Together

A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
encoded within I Ching hexagrams. These sixty-four interconnected
symbolic forms represent a continuous development of awakening
within each of us. Our lives have meaning, both individual and
collective. Events and situations are never without meaning, and
none stands alone. They develop from previous causes and, in turn,
contribute to the development of whatever is to come.

I Ching 44 – Meeting, presents with the trigram Heaven above Wind.
Heaven represents Life and Life is all that there is, and yet,
Wind – the winds of change – moves within (since even under is
within, in this instance) Life, both our individual and more or less
collective life.

Meeting follows Removal (43) and develops into Gathering (45).

Meeting suggests coming together with someone or something, or
facing an event or situation that requires a response.

Removal expresses separation from; perhaps not willingly. To stay
or go, when we know we must go; We must move on. However, wherever
we go, we bring our past experience with us, through lessons learned,
among other things.

Meeting suggests a new beginning. There will always be situations and
challenges that must be faced, sooner or later, These will serve us
in developing our self-confidence and expanding our awareness of Life.

Is there a personal meaning for me?

Yes, and for everyone else.

Cause and Effect are Interactive

Spirit’s I Ching Way

50 – The Cauldron

Fire over Wind. Yin and Yin interacting. Each is receptive to the other, at least in this situation.

The energies of fire and wind, in their extreme forms, can create destruction on their own. Together, they could bring disaster. Mental energies are no different than those of nature, in this respect.
But, a gentle fire and a controlled movement of air can create welcomed warmth, boil water, or heat food.

A cauldron was a large kettle hung over a fire before it was replaced with modern appliances and more controllable sources of heat.
However, the timeless realities exist even in a so-called modern world. The transfer of energy still requires movement and interaction between cause and effect.

What are you saying to me?

Who is what?

Perhaps there is a two-way interaction.

Yes.

Spirit explains I Ching 42 – Gradual Progress

Gradual Progress follows Mountain

 

Spirit explains:

 

Why do people climb mountains? Because they’re there.

Anything that blocks our way can be considered as a challenge

Or as inspiration to discover whatever might be beyond

A seemingly suggested limit.

 

Something is often blocking our way; our way to wherever, or

Whatever we might be if we refused to be stopped by

Challenges to our progress; physical, intellectual, emotional,

Or spiritual.

 

We each have a calling; a voice within us, within every cell of

Our being, that calls us to move or not to move, and when.

 

We have been socially conditioned to listen to outer voices.

Perhaps the time has come to listen to our own, inner one.

 

Could you be my inner voice?

 

Yes.

 

Are you?

 

No.

 

Spirit’s I Ching 50 – The Cauldron

Fire over wind.

The Cauldron follows Revolution.

 

Spirit explains:

 

A cauldron is a heavy cooking pot, placed over fire, to heat and

Tenderize its contents.

 

A revolution is also as a heavy cooking pot, fired with ideals and intent

To change social rules and make them more satisfying to more people.

 

However, in both cases, there is always a danger of the fire getting

Out of control and destroying what it was intended to improve.

 

But, we need fire.

 

Yes, but we also need to keep it under control.

 

How?

 

A wise cook knows how much heat to apply and when.

 

And a wise leader?

 

Yes.

 

 

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 44 – Meeting

Today’s I Ching – 44 – Meeting

 

Heaven above. Wind below.

Meeting follows Removal.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Removal expresses separation from, perhaps not willingly.

To stay or to go, when we know we must go. However,

Wherever we go, we bring our experiences of our past

With us, through  among other things, lessons learned,

 

Meeting suggests a new beginning. There will always be

Situations and challenges that must be faced, sooner or

Later. These will serve to develop our self-confidence and

Expand our awareness of Life.

 

Is there a personal meaning for me?

 

Yes.
