Today: “Your benevolence is being recognized.  Your grace will spread far and wide.” – from the I Ching

Your benevolence is being recognized.  Your grace will spread far and wide.

True kindness does not count upon nor ask about merit and gratitude but acts from inner necessity. And such a truly kind heart finds itself rewarded in being recognized, and thus the beneficent influence will spread unhindered.

See Yogi Bhajan’s quote for the day

Tao Te Ching – Verse 44 – Fame or integrity: which is more important?

Meditation: NM0163 – Feel God Within You, The Kindness in You

42 – Forty-Two. I / Expansion

Whirlwinds and Thunder:
When the Superior Person encounters saintly behavior, he adopts it; when he encounters a fault within, he transforms it.

Progress in every endeavor.
You may cross to the far shore.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Get ready to ride a tide of accelerated growth toward self-actualization.
A joyful awareness of the best within you, coupled with an acceptance of your Shadow, will provide a greater repertoire, a much bolder vision, and new depth and clarity that will compel you to expand your horizons.

Nine in the fifth place means:

Your benevolence has been recognized by those above you.
Your plans will greatly benefit all, and the favor you seek is as good as granted before you even ask.

If in truth you have a kind heart, ask not.
Supreme good fortune.
Truly, kindness will be recognized as your virtue.

Kind Heart

‘Kind Heart’ – Gustave Léonard de Jonghe

True kindness does not count upon nor ask about merit and gratitude but acts from inner necessity. And such a truly kind heart finds itself rewarded in being recognized, and thus the beneficent influence will spread unhindered.
27 – Twenty-Seven I / Providing Nourishment

Beneath the immobile Mountain the arousing Thunder stirs:
The Superior Person preserves his freedom under oppressive conditions by watching what comes out of his mouth, as well as what goes in.

Endure and good fortune will come.
Nurture others in need, as if you were feeding yourself.
Take care not to provide sustenance for those who feed off others.
Stay as high as possible on the food chain.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

You are a conduit in this instance, able to provide the sustenance needed by others.
Position yourself to nourish the truly needy and worthy.
Avoid situations where you might be coerced into supporting the parasites and vermin who deprive your true charges.
Your own nourishment is an issue here, too.
Remember Lao Tzu’s three Great Treasures:
Only the person possessed of Compassion, Modesty and Frugality can remain fit enough to stay free of desperation and keep control of the situation.

Today: “This constant exchange between separation and union are the two basic acts that run the universe.” – Yogi Bhajan

“This constant exchange between separation and union are the two basic acts that run the universe. What do we get out of it? We get bhaag—joy and good fortune. We get out of it what is us, within us. And if we master the mind, elevate ourselves, and entwine the mind in blessing and gratitude, then we get the bliss and meet the Infinite within us.” Yogi Bhajan
