Today: On the new moon and solar eclipse – a return – from the I Ching

A turning point.  The time of decay yields to a new beginning.  Difficult at first, but unstoppable.  There is nothing to do to make it happen.  It will happen (see today’s reading).  This is an opportunity to lend a hand to participate in the transformation with inspiration and guidance.  Your presence will have a profound influence.  Your radiance will shine in the darkness.

Today: Completion – from the I Ching

Completion.  Keep in mind that everything changes.  Forces that have brought everything to this point have played out.  A point of equilibrium has been reached, however tenuous.  New forces will have their own impact where cycles are again set in motion.

Today: Resolve your inner sources of conflict – from the I Ching

Look to your inner heart to find the sources of conflict.  Your inner truth and outer projection must be reconciled.  It is unwise to try to change something by force, other than in self-defense.
Forget convention and look to the foundations of your experience.  Allow new experience to influence your perception. Give up the struggle of simple stubbornness.

Today: A new order – from the I Ching

We have reached a state of delicate equilibrium.  It is already a new order in the sense that we all know better now than before.  What persists, however, is a tendency to deny what we know and revert to old habits and compulsions.  There is danger in that.
If those tendencies can be overcome, then grace brought by our awareness will illuminate the world and make it beautiful.

Today: Just watch what happens – from the I Ching

You may watch the turmoil surrounding you without taking it personally.  There are times when it just has to right itself.  And so it will seek its own balance, to the benefit of those who have been oppressed and persecuted, and at the expense of the oppressors.
