The Value of Signs of Aging

Spirit explains I Ching 22 – Adornment.

Mountain over Fire.

Adornment follows Biting Through.

 

An adornment is a decoration. It adds value without necessarily serving

A practical purpose of its own. It can be as icing on a cake, gravy on a

Steak, or as precious stones worn around one’s neck, arms, fingers, or

Pinned to hair or clothes. It might also be something that can be set on

A table, to be admired.

 

Biting Through suggests successfully completing a mission of importance,

To oneself, if to no other. Something needed to be done, and now can be

Celebrated and remembered with an adornment as a reward.

 

That sounds very nice but what personal message of inspiration can it

Have for me?

 

Do you possess something that seems to remind you of something else?

 

Such as?

 

Perhaps the many small lines on your face.

 

They only remind me that I am getting older.

 

Have you earned them?

 

I think so.

 

Yes.
