Today: “Be creative, be loving, be giving, be great” – Yogi Bhajan

SSSYWa“Be creative, be loving, be giving, be great, and God will give you bounty. There will be no limit. Whatever you plant in the spring, it will grow. So, if in your own ecology you will sprout positivity, service, smiles, charm, happiness, good faith, you will grow and you will be unlimited.” Yogi Bhajan

Today: The structure of darkness collapses and is reformed in the light – I Ching

Dark forces and their evil are in the last throes of their influence.  Those loyal to the dark leader are undermining the leader himself. His reign is collapsing.  Remember that evil does not hurt only the good, also the bad.  The dark power turns on they who wield it.  The snake is swallowing its own tail.
This bodes a time of the return of the light, not through force, but as a natural matter of course of cosmic rhythms.  As the old structure collapses, a new one inevitably forms and replaces it.  The restructure will happen with broad popular support.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching

The inferior, dark forces overcome what is superior and strong, not by direct means, but by undermining it gradually and imperceptibly, so that it finally collapses.
Inferior people are on the rise and stealthily begin their destructive burrowing from below in order to undermine the place where the superior man rests. Those followers of the ruler who remain loyal are destroyed by slander and intrigue. The situation bodes disaster, yet there is nothing to do but wait.
Here the splitting apart reaches its end. When misfortune has spent itself, better times return. The seed of the good remains, and it is just when the fruit falls to the ground that good sprouts anew from its seed. The superior man again attains influence and effectiveness. He is supported by public opinion as if in a carriage. But the inferior man’s wickedness is visited upon himself. His house is split apart. A law of nature is at work here. Evil is not destructive to the good alone but inevitably destroys itself as well. For evil, which lives solely by negation, cannot continue to exist on its own strength alone. The inferior man himself fares best when held under control by a superior man.
After a time of decay comes the turning point. The powerful light that has been banished returns. There is movement, but it is not brought about by force. The upper trigram Kun is characterised by devotion; thus the movement is natural, arising spontaneously. For this reason the transformation of the old becomes easy. The old is discarded and the new is introduced. Both measures accord with the time; therefore no harm results. Societies of people sharing the same views are formed. But since these groups come together in full public knowledge and are in harmony with the time, all selfish separatist tendencies are excluded, and no mistake is made.

Today: “When you become light and you radiate” – Yogi Bhajan

SSSYWa“When you become light and you radiate, there is no darkness. A candle has one future, to spread the light. How does the candle spread the light? By burning itself, the candle spreads the light and consequently knows the future. If you burn yourself, you will radiate and will spread the light. The job of the human being is to radiate through the finite self the infinite light.” Yogi Bhajan

Today: Be the light – I Ching

Be the light.  Illuminate the world.
See yesterday, “Lend your help leading the world out of chaos“.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching

What is dark clings to what is light and so enhances the brightness of the latter. A luminous thing giving out light must have within itself something that perseveres; otherwise it will in time burn itself out. Everything that gives light is dependent on something to which it clings, in order that it may continue to shine.
Thus the sun and moon cling to heaven, and grain, grass, and trees cling to the earth. So too the twofold clarity of the dedicated man clings to what is right and thereby can shape the world. Human life on earth is conditioned and unfree, and when man recognises this limitation and makes himself dependent upon the harmonious and beneficent forces of the cosmos, he achieves success. The cow is the symbol of extreme docility. By cultivating in himself an attitude of compliance and voluntary dependence, man acquires clarity without sharpness and finds his place in the world.
