- A special welcome to those who are receiving this message for the first time this week.Please ask for clarification if you wish
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:
ENERGY AND SPIRIT RETURN AFTER A DIFFICULT TIME; RENEWAL, REBIRTH, RE-ESTABLISH; NEW HOPE
Return, (Fu): Go back, turn back, return to the starting point; come back, reappear; resurgence, re-birth, renaissance; re-establish, renew, renovate, restore; again, anew; an earlier time and place; the very beginning of the new time. The ideogram portrays the signs for walking and retracing a path
Issuing forth and entering in without affliction
Partners come without fault
Your Tao reverses and returns. Returning comes on the seventh day.It is advantageous to have a direction to go.
This 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 see the heart of Heaven and Earth
OUTER and INNER WORLDS: Field and Shake
Rousing new energy germinates inside and opens a new filed of activity.
HIDDEN POSSIBILITY: 2 Field
The reappearance of creative energy contains the hidden possibility of giving everything new form and shape,
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 in 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.
You are not allowed to completely use things up.
When stripping is exhausted above, it reverses itself below
Accepting this lets you use Returning
Returning means Reversing
Thunder located in the earth centre. Returning.
The early kings barred the passages at the suns ending. (winter solstice)
THE OPPOSING: (The "I" calls as to look at the Opposite of our Reading so we can focus on what IS as opposed to what IS NOT) In this reading the Opposing was.
OPENING, WELCOMING, AN INTENSE PERSONAL ENCOUNTER: MEET AND ACT THROUGH THE YIN, SEXUAL INTERCOURSEA time to welcome what comes to you. Acting through the woman and the Yin brings invigoration strength. Welcome what comes. Do not try to enforce your will. This is a time of meetings, brief, intense encounters that involve universal forces. Do not try to control things directly, but realise what happens to you reflects the union of these powers. Great things are moving in these events. The spirit spreads throughout the world. You are coupled with a creative force. It brings unexpected encounters, lucky coincidences and enjoyable happenings. Do not try to hold onto things. These contacts come and go. When Heaven and Earth meet, all the beings join in a brief radiant display.THE TRANSFORMING LINES:There were TWO transforming Lines at second and third positions.The FirstRest through returningThe way is openReturn to the source by releasing your grip. Let things rest. Let go of what you are doing. Be unselfish and benevolent. Recognise your common humanity. The way is open to youThe SecondAn urgent return.

ixjaguar@...MY PERSONAL READING WHICH I AM GUIDED TO SAHRE WITH YOU THIS WEEK WAS
LOOK AT THINGS FROM A DISTANCE, CONTEMPLATE, LET EVERYTHING COME INTO VIEW, DIVINE THE MEANING
THE NAME: view (Kuan) contemplate, look at from a distance or height, examine, judge, conjecture about: divination; idea, point of view; instruct, inform, point out, make known; also a Taoist monastery, an observatory. A tower. The ideogram portrays a bird and the sign for see It suggests a birds eye view and watching birds signs.
THE IMAGE: Viewing, the ablution and not the libation. The connection to the spirit will come like a presence
This is a time to look at things without acting in order to divine their meaning and find the right perspective. Let everything emerge. Look particularly at those things you usually do not want to see. This is the time of religious ceremony when the purification has been made and the libation or offering is about to be poured out. Have confidence. Looking into things will bring you the insight you need. The spirit will arrive and carry you through. Let all the images appear on the inner field of vision. Strip away your preconceived ideas. Seek out what is important. Yield to things and give them space on the inner ground. You can let your whole world come into view. If you prepare well, the things you are trying to influence will change spontaneously. When the sages used this way of teaching, the whole world would listen.
OUTER and INNER WORLDS: Penetrating and Field.
Entering the inner field, images of distant things and actions come into view.
HIDDEN POSSIBILITY: 23 Striping
Letting everything come into view contains the hidden possibility of stripping away what is outmoded
STRIP AWAY OLD IDEAS AND HABITS, ELIMINATE WHAT IS UNUSABLE, OUTMODED OR WORN OUT.
This is a time to strip away what is unusable, habits and ideas that have grown old and outmoded. remove and uncover things. Cut into the problem and strip away the unessential. It will NOT bring you profit or insight to have a plan or direction. Deal with what is at hand. This is the end of an old cycle and the preparation for the new. Re-establish creative balance by stripping away outmoded embellishments. Take action. Give generously to what is below you to stabilize your position. Adapt to what is coming. Do not impose your will. Concentrate on the Symbolic value of things, their power to connect with the spirit world. the old structure is dissolving so new action can emerge.
That is where Heaven is moving
Being Great, you are allowed to Vie things
Accepting this lets you use viewing.
Nearing and Viewing are righteous
Perhaps you associate with others, perhaps you seek them.
The wind moves above the Earth, Viewing
The early kings inspected on all sides, viewing the commoners to set up their teaching
I also had FOUR transforming Lines and My change Pattern was
27 JAWS (CORRECTING NOURISHMENT)
NOURISHING AND BEING NOURISHED, FOOD AND WORDS; THE MOUTH, YOUR DAILY BREAD; TAKE THINGS IN, SWALLOW
This is a time to look at what goes in and out of your mouth. Where do the words and food come from? Where do they go? What is your source of nourishment and whom do you nourish? Concern yourself with taking things in, literally and metaphorically. Take in what has been said and done to feed the NEW in yourself and others. Help to nourish people and their hopes and needs. Through these concerns, the way opens. Contemplate these things deeply, for the answer to your question lies there. Correct the source of nourishment. Articulate how you eat, drink and speak. Heaven and earth nourish the myriad beings. The sages nourish what is excellent in order to extend it to others. You can do this also. This is a time to BE GREAT
