Water and Air as Yin and Yang

Spirit shares His understanding of I Ching 52 –
Mountain.

Mountain above and mountain below. Now, that’s
a mountain.

Mountain follows Thunder (51) and is followed by
Gradual Progress (53).

Spirit explains: Thunder is caused by the force
of air, as is wind. Air is not without life. Air
is the breath of life, at least human, plant and
animal life, here on Earth. Without clean air we
cannot live as we would with it.

Where does Mountain fit into the picture?

What picture?

Of clean air.

Air is the background.

What about Gradual Progress? How does it follow
Mountain?

Mountains are not easily moved and so can reflect
rigid attitudes toward protecting our environment,
clean air and water for future generations of air
breathing and water drinking life forms.

A lecture in conservation?

Yes.

Note: After the lesson was over, for it seemed to be as
a lesson, Spirit sent a vision into my mind of water and
air as yin and yang, each flowing into and out of the
other in an elusive flow, as one and yet not one.

Neither can exist without the other, was the message
Spirit seemed to be sending to me. There is water in
air and air in water. Only degrees of difference
exist and even then, only in passing fluctuations
of harmony.

Something to think about.

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.

Today’s I Ching – 13 – Association with Others

Association with Others follows Obstruction.

 

Spirit explains:

 

Obstructions, both within and without, are a necessary

Part of life experience..

 

Why?

 

Seemingly impossible difficulties encourage us to become

Aware that we need to co-operate, to associate with others

For mutually beneficial results. We each help ourselves by

Helping others to co-create a more harmonious future, together.

 

How can we cooperate with those who will not?

 

Then don’t.

 

But…

 

A river moves where it can. Rock blocks the river’s flow,

Obstructing its forward movement. The river cannot flow

Through the rock, but it must flow, if only upward and around.

 

The message?

 

If you were as a river, and we all are, then what is

Blocking your path and how do you plan to move

Around this obstruction?

 

The answer might be easy if Life provided only one

Obstruction at a time.

 

Life never promises easy.

 

And, no..

 

And what if I am…?

 

Yes.

 

That can never be.

 

Why?

 

I am the force that moves the river.

 

And I am the river?

 

Yes.
