I Ching of the Week: I Ching (Yijing) Reading for the week of August 12, 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.

Here we have Fire above Earth. This gives us the image of the sun illuminating the earth, causing all things to flourish and grow towards the sun. This is a time to see the outcome of your self-cultivation. The seeds that you have planted in the recent past will get a chance to bloom.
We are guided to become as open and receptive as the earth. It is in gathering our qi or energy that we become strong enough to manifest our goals and visions. It is in practicing our self-cultivation that we become strong enough and clear enough to be bale to take advantage of this very positive time to move forward on our path of self realization.
By staying true to our own nature and not trying to fit ourselves into a difficult or even harmful way of life we will better be able to move forward in a positive and balanced way.
Master Ni tells us, “Many people pursue careers and lifestyles that are contrary to their true nature. Although their ambitions may be fulfilled, they often harm themselves psychologically and spiritually.”
Be sure that the path you choose is the right
one for you and contributes to your own spiritual evolution. This is the first
step that will take you for a thousand miles!
