FOR THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18, 2019
The I Ching is a book of Chinese wisdom, the accumulated experience of over 2,500 years of diviners and sages, and beyond that of unimaginably ancient oral traditions; it’s a guide to an ethical life, a manual for rulers, and an oracle of one’s personal future and the future of the state. The book of divination is based on eight symbolic trigrams and sixty-four hexagrams.
The oracles have been offering people help and wise, genial guidance for generations. It will tell you what challenges and opportunities you are likely to face if you take a particular path, and how you can negotiate the obstacles you meet. This is the opposite of 'fortune telling'. Being told what will happen, as if your own choices had nothing to do with the outcome, is deeply disempowering. The I Ching tells seekers what effects their choices will have, and helps them to develop strategies to achieve their goals.
One needs to apply wisdom received in this post to upcoming events as they unfold during the coming week.
The Abysmal repeated
If you are sincere, you have success in your heart,
And whatever you do succeeds.
Through repetition of danger we grow accustomed to it. Water sets the example for the right conduct under such circumstances. It flows on and on, and merely fills up all the places through which it flows; it does not shrink from and dangerous spot nor from any plunge, and nothing can make it lose its own essential nature. It remains to to itself under all conditions.
Water flows on uninterruptedly and reaches its goal.
The image of the Abysmal repeated.
Thus the superior man walks in lasting virtue
And carries on the business of teaching.
