HEAVEN and EARTH COMBINE in the "I" Week Commencing 4 April 2004 - Do what you have to do! - Let go of what is past. A new focus is emerging.
- WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DEVELOP THIS WEEK?Remember the I CHING is a system that is 5000 years old and so its wisdom is ancient but very very modern today.When we ask the "I" a question the answer requires us to go inside ourselves.As you read these words remember that the message may not be for you TODAY but later in the week you may need it.So this weeks reading is answered as follows:
The PRIMARY READING WAS:
7 LEGIONSDISCIPLINE, ORGANISE INTO FUNCTIONAL UNITS, MOBILIZE, LEAD; MASTER OF ARMS.
THE NAME: LEGIONS/LEADING (Shih) Troops, an army: leader, general, master of arms, master of a craft: organise, make functional, mobilize, discipline; take as a model, imitate. the ideogram portrays people moving around a centre
THE IMAGE: LEGIONS.
Divination: experienced people open the way
This is a time to organise things into functional units so that you can take effective action. Put things in order. Develop capacity to lead. Consult people with experience. Have a martial split. Remember the ideal of this army is not to wage aggressive war, but to serve, to bring order and protect people who cannot protect themselves. It founds cities and defends what people need in order to live. This is not a mistake. Crowds of unorganised things surround you. Take care to correct this by giving each thing its place. Support and sustain the people. This is difficult, grievous work. Take risks and confront obstacles in your desire to serve. This activates a central principle people will spontaneously adhere to. It is exactly what is needed. How could it be a mistake?OUTER AND INNER WORLDS: Field and Gorge. An inner willingness to risk and the outer goal of serving combine to make the legionsTHE HIDDEN POSSIBILITY: 24 Returning. The organisation of the legions contains the hidden possibility of returning to the source of energy.
ENERGY AND SPIRIT RETURN AFTER A DIFFICULT TIME; RENEWAL, REBIRTH, RE-ESTABLISH; NEW HOPEThis a time of re-birth and returning energy after a difficult time. Go back to meet this new energy in order to begin anew. This will bring success. Return to the source. Restore the original purity and feeling. Things go out and come in without trouble or disturbance. People will suggest profitable projects. It is not a mistake to join them. Your way reverses direction and returns to you on the seventh day, at the end of the completed period of time. You can begin again. Have a plan or a direction. That will bring profit and insight. Be open to new ideas. Turn in your tracks to meet what is coming. Returning to THE WAY is the root of virtue and power. Mark yourself off from others and nurture the returning energy. Stir things up and work with the movement. Let things emerge without pressure. Heaven is moving here. In returning you se the heart of Heaven and EarthTHE SEQUENCE: Whenever there is arguing crowds will rise up. Accepting this lets you use the Legions. Legions implies crowds/THE DEFINITION: Legions mean GrievingTHE SYMBOL: In the earth centre, there is a stream. Legions. the realizing person tolerates the commoners to accumulate crowds.THE OPPOSING:
13 CONCORDING PEOPLEHARMONY, BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER, SHARE YOU IDEA OR GOAL, WELCOME OTHERS, COOPERATE
THE TRANSFORMING LINES: There were three transforming lines at second, third and sixth positions.
The first Transforming line:
Located in the centre of the legions, the way is open. Without Fault. The Kings bestows a mandate on him three times. This is the leaders position, in the centre of the troops. It is not a mistake to be here. You will receive a mandate from the King Three times. this is a great honour. Carrying out these orders will change your life.
The Second Transforming Line
Perhaps the legion are carrying corpses. The way is closed
Corpses are dead bodies, old memories, useless ideas or false images. In any case, get rid of them. What are you carrying around with you is closing the way
The Third Transforming Line
The great leader has a mandate. he lays out the city and receives the dwellings. Do not use small people.
The great leader receives a mandate to found a city and allot the dwellings. he will be its patron. Do not be flexible now. You are in the correct position to achieve something great. It will necessarily upset the way power is currently apportioned. Do not worry. Do what you have to do!
THE CHANGE PATTERN This allows us to see how the changes will occur
BE DRAWN INTO MOTION, INFLUENCED BY, ACCEPT GUIDANCE, MOVE WITH THE FLOW, NATURAL AND CORRECT
You are being drawn forward through a strong attraction. Follow the inevitable course of events. Yield to the path set out un front of you, the path of last resistance. BE guided by the way things are moving. You are involved in a series of events that are firmly connected. This can open up a new time. It will bring fundamental success, profit and insight. It is not a mistake. the call has come. Let go of what is past. A new focus is emerging. Dim your discriminating power so old habits can dissolve. the whole world must follow the times and the seasons. You are following a righteous idea inherent in the time
THE STEPS OF CHANGE: There are three steps
YIELD, NOURISH, PROVIDE: THE POWER TO GIVE FORM TO ALL THINGS, RECEPTIVE, GENTLE, GIVING, SUPPLE, WELCOME, CONSENT
This is the primal power to nourish and give things form. You see it in the earth, the moon, the mother, the devoted servant, the mare. You are confronted with many conflicting forces. Yield to each thing and give it form. Nourish and provide for it. This can open a whole cycle of time. it brings success, profit and insight. Make sure you keep your sense of inner purpose. At first you will be confused by the profusion of events. Do not worry. Do whatever presents itself to be done. You will soon acquire what you NEED. It will bring profit and insight to work in a supporting role. Join with others is concrete activities (southwest). But DO NOT shirk your own responsibilities (northeast). The way is open to you through calm, quiet acceptance. Let your power to realize things be so generous that it can carry everything that approaches. Cherish each thing and help it grow.
RISE UP TO A HIGHER LEVEL, LIFT YOURSELF, ADVANCE; CLIMB UP STEP BY STEP.
This is a time to move upward through your own efforts. Proceed step by step. Set yourself a goal and work towards it. this will give you a solid base and will bring great success. Put your purpose in order. Bring out hidden potential. See people who can show you what is in order. Bring out the hidden potential. See people who can show you what is great in the world and in yourself, and use their influence. Have no cares or fears. You are undoubtedly on your way. Work hard. Set out towards to south, the region of Summer, growth insensitivity and action. The way is open to you. You can rise through inner adaptability. But it does not simply come to you. Work hard to realise the Tao. Amass small things to achieve things to achieve the great. Penetrate to the core, for the centre of things is strong. Correct things, put them in order and set out on your way. Your purpose is indeed on the move
LOSS, DECREASE. SACRIFICE, CONCENTRATE, DIMINISH INVOLVEMENTS, AIM AT A HIGHER GOAL.Diminishing makes things smaller, higher, and closer to the spirits and ideals. Gather your energy and send it upward. Withdraw from passionate emotional involvements. This fundamentally opens the way to you. This is and enabling divination. Have a plan and follow it. Inquire into your motivations. The two platters you use to make your presentation to the higher powers represent the increase of Ying Energy, the receptive, and the decrease of Yang energy, the aggressive. This decrease is the necessary beginning of a new increase to come. The outer limit is there to bring inner development to expression. Something significant is returning. Let go of things. This is now you repair and adjust your relation to the way. It is heavy at first, but lets you be versatile and change with the time. Block the expression of anger and passion. This changes the flow of energy. Diminish what is below and augment what is above. Diminish the yang, augment the Yin. This connects you to the time so that you can move with it
THE RELATING FIGURE:
CALM, STILL, STABILIZE; LIMIT OR BOUNDARY, END OF A CYCLE; BECOME AN INDIVIDUALBound marks a limit, the end of a cycle, where things fully articulate themselves. They become individual. Calm and still your desire to act. Stabilize yourself. Do not try to advance, but see through your desires. By stabilizing your back, you still the personality. You can move through your life without being caught up in things or being confined to a social identity. This is not a mistake. It lets you calm and stabilize yourself. Stay where you are and think things over deeply. Recognize your limits. Stir things up or still them as the time requires, but do not get entangled with anything.
