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.
