Today’s I Ching reading by Spirit.
I Ching 60 – Discipline, develops out of Dispersal (59) and moves
Toward Sincerity (61).
Spirit explains: Discipline requires intent, purpose, and awareness of
The price of scattered energy. Those who do not develop self-discipline
Endanger themselves and their society.
Not everyone has intent and purpose, or more than limited awareness.
You are not everyone.
There are also those who would discipline others and organize them as
Followers of their leader’s purpose.
I am one of those.
Then, where is sincerity?
In my dedication to a purpose.
Devotion to Life.
Today’s I Ching is 60 – Discipline
Water over Lake.. Discipline follows Dispersal.
Spirit explains: When a river flows into a lake then water overflows
Onto surrounding land, unless it is restricted from doing so.
Dispersal suggests an unorganized scattering, such as seeds or
Dry leaves by a wind.
There is no free will choice, no sense of freedom involved when
We have no self-control concerning where we are going with our life.
Self-discipline determines what we will do with our potential; how
It will be directed. Without self-control, we risk being controlled by others.
How to have it both ways? I need to be free and still be a contributing part of
A community. I need to think for myself and still learn from You and others.
Yes, we need both.
Then how do we work both sides of the street?
We compromise; we find an acceptable middle ground between extremes
Of individualism and group control. But we must always be aware of
The price we choose to pay, or we risk losing choosing.
