We can pretend not to see.

Today’s I Ching – 36 – Damage to Illumination.

 

Spirit explains the Universal Law of Change, which, He claims, is

Connected to but separate from, other Universal Laws, such as Karma.

 

We have no power to prevent change, for we are part of all that is changing.

We co-create, with all life, not what changes but how it and we change.

 

Damage to Illumination expresses this Universal reality, but we can

Pretend  Not to see or accept even what we cannot honestly deny.

 

Why would we pretend?

 

Perhaps for fear of being required to accept responsibility for

An undeniable truth.

 

Such as?

 

That we each are part of what is, and we play a role in how

It will develop. Did we Advance (35) too quickly, or too slowly

To see how it would affect our Family (37)?….

 

How can we ever know?

 

What?

 

Anything.

 

Experience.

 

 

 

My Spirit teacher explains I Ching 36 – Reduced Light

Reduced Light follows Advance in the order of the hexagrams.

Fire over Earth follows Earth over Fire.

 

The sun appears to be above the Earth by day, and

Below the Earth by night.

 

A wisdom tradition tells us that to everything there is

A time and a season.

 

How does the reading apply to me?

 

Be patient.
