A spirit wisdom teacher explains I Ching 12 – Obstruction.
Obstruction follows Tranquility, or might, if might rules.
The construction of the hexagrams for Obstruction and Tranquility
Both present yang and yin energies as concentrated and opposed.
Tranquility expresses followers as being seemingly held in a high status.
But, the power remains concentrated in the leadership. Obstruction shows
A more or less reversed order. Leadership is on top, but only by suppression,
Which invites resistance.
Obedience is not co-operation. There is no sense of trust and each side feels
Alienated from the other. There must be a blending of energies for each to feel
Part of the solution.
Is this a political situation or one of relationship?
Yes, and an attitude one.
Attitudes direct how we perceive whatever situation and how we perceive
Directs our action, or reluctance to act.
Could the situation apply to teacher and student …
Then what is the solution?
Can we find common ground?
Yes, and some is a beginning.
