Last night, I felt like tearing my hair out.
I threw my hands up in despair.
“What’s the use? Why bother? I quit!”
Because the gift I have to offer the world could make the difference between life and death, human survival or mass extinction.
Yet no matter how often I post blogs, trying to get through to the public, they’re ignored. Or glossed over. No comments, likes or shares. The content is too far outside the comfort zone of the familiar.
It’s because we’re brainwashed. We wear the blinders of empirical science.
By education and ingrained prejudice, we habitually filter out awareness of the inner levels of the Life Wheel, including the energy level upon which the Book of Change depends.
They’re “ruled out.”
In the context of the Unified Field Theory, the limited and limiting materialist world view looks like this:
Sadly, we’ve been rendered deaf to the inner levels of consciousness.
This explains why the vast majority is fiercely resistant to the Book of Change and its magical synchronicities.
Sadly, it also explains why so many remain blind to the extraordinary opportunities for positive change hidden, latent with today’s challenges.
Most of us forfeit the blessings in disguise inherent in today’s chaos: the I Ching way out of madness.
A la Einstein, whose formula fits so perfectly within the archetypal Life Wheel, expecting a positive result from repeated attempts to solve today’s problems with empirical science is INSANE.
It rules out exactly the sub- and super-rational levels of awareness where problems begin and where creative solutions are ultimately found.
Fortunately, thanks to the work of a growing army of authors (notably Wayne Dyer, Joe Dispenza and Marisa Peer), we’re becoming increasing aware that our immediate experience is the result of our thoughts and inner atunement.
As strange as it may sound, the way to change ourselves and our world for the better is to improve our thoughts and beliefs.
Our best hope for the future is to make ourselves whole again. It’s possible to integrate the full spectrum of inner light and energy with the tangible, measurable experience of daily life. Meditation has the potential to open us up, like magic, to the experience of UNITY. Wholeness.
Then, inner peace arises. Relationships become harmonious. We become extraordinarily resilient and inventive.
We’re not trained to come to the Book of Change for answers to our deepest questions. That’s why I’ve chosen to bring the book to you in this series of bi-weekly blogs through to the end of 2020. They’ll serve as an introduction, to make the unfamiliar familiar — a first taste of sanity, if you will.
This morning, I queried my departed teacher. (Today would have been his 62nd birthday.) I wrote how much I love him and dearly miss his physical being. Then I asked what I should be aware of NOW.
The answer spoke to the frustration I felt last night. I’m publishing it here because it speaks to all of us whose hopes and dreams are on hold, whether due to social distancing, economic chaos, natural disasters or relationship upheavals.
The original reading was SHADOW:
The reading was dynamic, with three changing lines. In my notebook, it looked like this:v
The bottom line warns, “Only unselfish motives and moderate actions will meet with success.” It changes to BALANCE, the original hexagram of yesterday’s equinox reading. Given that today, the 22nd of September, is the actual equinox date, I’m smiling at this bit of synchronicity. The repeater confirms yesterday’s message. : )
The third line advises, “Build new habits slowly. Remain calm. Develop constant awareness.”
It changes to RETURN, which looks like this:
The top line offers hope. “Problems will fade. New and better times will come soon.” I can live with that. : ) It changes to BEAUTY, which looks like this:
My beloved teacher was telling me not to look back. No matter how beautiful time spent with him was, dwelling on the past isn’t helpful now. Instead, I should focus on building better times ahead – for all of us.
Surely the same applies to anyone focused on regretting what’s passed.
Finally, the combined result of the three changing lines is ADVERSITY, which looks like this:
ADVERSITY can be read in one or many ways at once, as you choose.
For many reasons, I’ve been under a SHADOW for more than a year. It’s due partly to the fact that the Book of Change remains in obscurity, misunderstood and unappreciated.
This fact has resulted in ADVERSITY, not only for me, but for the world at large.
Today I was advised on the best way to adjust. Accept hardship as a test of fortitude. Regard it as an opportunity to strengthen character. It’s incentive to focus on inner strength – an essential survival quality ruled out by empirical science.
Last night I was in despair. This morning, the final warning of ADVERSITY is straight to the point! AVOID DESPAIR.
The same goes for all of us.
The next installment, scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 24, will expand on the connection between the Book of Change and the Life Wheel which embodies the Unified Field Theory.
If you’d like your very own copy of the CSBOC to work with, to answer your own unique questions at your own convenience, or want extras to give others in need of insight, solace and support, it’s available here. : )
Okay, then. That’s all for now. Talk with you again soon. Take care, all.
