Today’s I Ching is Difficulty (3), developing out of The Receptive (2) and
Moving toward Immaturity (4).
Spirit explains: Water is above Thunder in the situation represented by
Hexagram 3, Difficulty. Water is unstable, while thunder consistently
Also, water must find its own level. This is not a matter of thought or
Emotion. It is a law of nature, or water’s destiny. Only in the forms of
Ice or snow can water remain above anything. Outside forces, such as
Sun, wind, or gravity move water where they will to.
Where does Immaturity fit into this picture?
Immaturity is a blessing.
How? And why?
Immature forms of life have more potential for growth than do
Older ones. Mature forms are less receptive to development.
Stay young in your thinking.
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.
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?
Spirit tells me that imperfection is a Law of Nature,
Which is to say, a Universal Law.
Everyone and everything, He tells me, is
Necessarily imperfect, and always will be.
As such, it is a gift of Life, as is our
Awareness of this gift.
How can my awareness of my imperfection
Be a gift?
Not awareness of your imperfections.
Awareness of The Law of Imperfection.
How is it a gift?
It allows you to aspire to become all that
You can be, without ever having to worry
About reaching absolute limits.
