We play by rules we choose

Spirit Teaches I Ching Wisdom.

 

Today’s I Ching is 7 – The Army.

 

Spirit explains: As today follows yesterday into the past, so The Army

Follows Contention (6); and, as today reaches toward tomorrow, so does

The Army reach toward Closeness (8).

 

I can understand The Army and Contention acting on each other, but,

What relationship can The Army have with Closeness?

 

When reason alone fails to solve contention then power is a necessary

Organizing force. It serves a good purpose if it can bring together

Contentious groups. It can contribute to a sense of closeness.

 

Okay, I can accept that, but how does it relate to me?

 

Who is contentious?

 

Perhaps I am, at times.

 

Who is The Army?

 

I don’t know.

 

Is the army as a referee in this instance?

 

That’s possible, but not all referees play by the same rules.

 

What rules do I play by?

 

Perhaps rules of your own choosing.

 

Yes, and so do you.
