The way we live should express both our inner and outer values, in harmony with each other.
I Ching as a Way to Enlightenment
Today’s I Ching – 23 – Stripping Away
Mountain above. Earth below.
Stripping Away follows Adornment.
Adornment suggests excess of what is functionally necessary.
Stripping away reduces some of this excess.
It is time, He tells me, for a new beginning; to live a more
Simple and uncluttered lifestyle. The way we live should
Express both our inner and outer values, in harmony with
How is that possible, without the material means to express
Oneself as one would?
Then we do what we can with what we have. And, He suggests,
There are always areas of excess in our lives.
Excess of inactivity could be reduced with exercise.
I give up.
