HEAVEN and EARTH COMBINE in the "I" Week Commencing 3 October 2004 - Yield to the path set out in front of you, the path of last resistance
- Leave what you usually do, go out into the world and mingle with others. The way is open. By stepping out of your usual place you will achieve somethingWHAT 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.I am asked to utilise the Pendulum MethodSo this weeks reading is answered as follows:
The PRIMARY READING WAS:
BE DRAWN INTO MOTION, INFLUENCED BY, ACCEPT GUIDANCE, MOVE WITH THE FLOW, NATURAL AND CORRECT
Follow: (SUI) Come or go after in an inevitable sequence; conform to, according to, come, immediately after; in the style of, according to the ideas of; move in the same direction; follow a way, school or religion. The ideogram portrays three footsteps, one following the other.
Fundamental Success: Advantageous Divination
You are being drawn forward through a strong attraction. Follow the inevitable course of events. Yield to the path set out in 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
OUTER and INNER WORLDS: Open and Shake
Stimulating words in the outer world stir up new energies within.
These Trigrams emphasise taking NEW ACTION
HIDDEN POSSIBILITY: 53 Gradual Advancing:
Following a Model, person or process contains the hidden possibility of gradually realising your desires.
53 GRADUAL ADVANCING
STEP BY STEP, SMOOTH, ADAPTABLE, PENETRATE LIKE WATER; THE OLDEST DAUGHTERS MARRIAGE
This is a time to gradually achieve a goal through adaptability and gentle, subtle penetration. The model is the marriage of the oldest daughter that proceeds slowly and ceremoniously. Do not take the initiative. Wait for the proper signs and signals to go forward. This gentle adaptable yet penetrating attitude opens the way. It will bring Profit and Insight. You will find the place where you belong and ultimately achieve mastery. It opens a new field of activity. Depend on your own moral strength and connection to the way to change the situation. Advance through the Yin and the Woman. Stabilize your desire, adapt and gently penetrate to the core of the situation.
Providing for Necessarily creates a following.
Accepting this lets you use Following.
Following is without previous Causes
In the centre of the MISTS there is thunder: Following.
A Realising Person turns to darkening to enter a reposing pause.
THE OPPOSING: (What the Reading IS NOT)
DISORDER, PERVERSION OR DECAY WITH ROOTS IN THE PAST, BLACK MAGIC; RENEW, RENOVATE, FIND A NEW BEGINNINGThis is a time of corruption, decay and hidden poison. It contains the challenge to find the source of the corruption and deal with it, so a new time can begin. You are faced with something that has turned bad, like the evil deeds of parents that are manifested in their children. Step into the stream of life with a firm purpose. This brings Profit and Insight. Prepare the change carefully. Watch over its beginnings, then guide its first growth. Doing business always implies corruption but you can find its source. Rouse the underdeveloped potential. This can produce a new spring and regulate the world once more. You will soon have more than enough to keep you busy. The spirit is moving in this situationTHE TRANSFORMING LINES: There were three at 1st ,5th and 6thThe FirstIf you have an office, deny it. Divination: The way is openIssue forth from the gate and mingle with othersThere will be achievementsLeave what you usually do, go out into the world and mingle with others. The way is open. By stepping out of your usual place you will achieve somethingThe SecondThere is a connection to the spirits leading to excellenceThe way is open.The way is open to you. Follow the connection. It leads on to excellenceThe ThirdGrappled and tied to itThus the adherents are held fast to it.The King makes sacrifice on the Western MountainYou are firmly attached to what you follow and others are held fast through you. You are enshrined in the hall of the ancestors. You become a presence in peoples imagination. This is as far as you can goTHE CHANGE PATTERN:
CONTINUE ON, ENDURE AND RENEW THE WAY, CONSTANT, CONSISTENT, CONTINUE IN WHAT IS RIGHT.This is a time to continue on, to endure on your path and in what is right. Continue on as you are and continually renew your decision. Be constant, regular and stable. Persist in your way of life or the thing you are doing. This is not a mistake. It will bring profit and insight. Have a definite direction or plan and follow it consistently. This is the way of the Husband and Wife, a relation that endures over time. Cling to established principles now. As you complete one thing, let it become the start of the next. The Sun and Moon depend on Heaven, thus there light endures. The wise person endures in the way. Thus the Human world can change and perfect itself. If you contemplate where and how things persevere, you will see the deep purpose of all the myriad things.THE STEPS OF CHANGEThe First
GATHER ASSEMBLE COLLECT, BUNCH TOGETHER, CROWDS; A GREAT EFFORT BRINGS GREAT REWARDS.This is a time to unite people and things through a common purpose in order to accomplish great work. The goal is a vision in the mind of a king, the highest principle, and all can work towards it. Seeing those who can point out what is great, and in the world and in yourself, will bring profit and insight. Great ideas are needed now. The way lies open to success, maturity and prosperity. Make a great sacrifice to the project at hand. Have a plan and carry it out. These things bring profit and insight. Clustering means collecting people together. Common labour comes to expression. Anticipate dangers so you are not taken by surprise. the people gather round a strong central vision, like the King who imagines a temple. Yield to the mandate in the time and work with it. By contemplating how people come together, you can understand the motives of all beings under heaven.The Second
51 SHAKE (Rising up)
A DISTURBING AND FERTILIZING SHOCK; WAKE UP, STIR UP, BEGIN THE NEW: RETURN OF LIFE AND LOVE IN SPRINGThis is a disturbing and arousing shock, a burst of new energy. It brings new life and new love. Rouse things up to new activity. Re- imagine things. Let this shake up your old habits. When it first comes, the shock can be frightening. Then joy and laughter soon follow. The moment when the thunder first burst from the earth in spring to revive everything and bring it back to life is a solemn moment. Do not be carried away. Focus on offering something to the spirits who have given us this joyous life. Inspect and adjust yourself. Act as a master of ceremonies that bring fertility back to the earthThe Third
25 WITHOUT EMBROILING
DISENTANGLE YOURSELF; SPONTANEOUS, UNPLANNED, DIRECT; CLEAN, PURE, FREE FROM CONFUSION OR ULTERIOR MOTIVES.This is a time to stay unentangled. Do not get caught up in things. If you are free from disorder, compulsion and vanity, you can act spontaneously and confidently. Free yourself from anger, lust and hatred or greed fro gain. You can gain the capacity to act directly. This can begin a new time. It offers fundamental success, profit and insight. If you do not correct yourself, however, you will continually make mistakes through ignorance or faulty perception. Then nothing you do will be of any use. Action now is inspired by the Spirit of Heaven. Proceed in this spirit, Step by Step. If you do that, success will be your fate. If you become entangled and loose the connection, how could you do anything rightTHE RELATING FIGURE:
35 PROSPERING (THE DAY TIME)
