I Ching of the Week: I Ching (Yijing) Reading for the week of May 13, 2013
Each week the I Ching offers up a timeless gem of ancient Taoist wisdom
just for you, in the form of one of its 64 Hexagrams, along with our
thoughtful commentary. Through the interplay of yin/yang principles, all
truth is ultimately revealed.
This week we have the image of obstruction. The upper hexagram is ocean while the lower is mountain. This gives us the image of obstruction, clearly not a week to expect to get great things done! But we need not be downhearted or discouraged by it either.
Hua-Ching Ni tells us,
“During times of obstruction, one should be still and practice cultivation. This opportunity should be used to gather energy instead of complicating matters with impatience and struggle. When one has a positive attitude, even the highest mountain seems lower and the deepest water more shallow. Inner strength can make obstructions less imposing. A self- developed person cultivates his virtue and is not defeated by obstruction.”
So let us take the time this week to settle in and find peace in the midst of this obstruction and the patience to wait it out in a good hearted and non-stressed out way.
