The Image of Mountain over Fire


I Ching image hexagram 22, Grace

Form follows function.

What we wear is not our soul.
Our clothes are symbols of decoration we choose that reflect our position in society.
Show your inner beauty with tranquility.
Cultivate the ability to enjoy life with grace and elegance.
The brightness of fire illuminates the still mountain
creating images we call art.

Form follows function.

Nine in the First Place

Wilhelm says: S/he lends grace to the toes, leaves the carriage, and walks.

Becoming graceful begins with the feet.
While the sole of the foot symbolizes the soul
the shoes we wear show our status in the culture we travel in.
Learn how to fit into the environment by being grounded.
Don’t pretend to be more than you are.

Six in the second place

The way we display our hair defines the culture we live in.
We make our decorations beautiful to create projections of character.
This way of seeing or being seen is not the true inner self . . .
Except when it is.

Nine in the Third Place

This is a charming situation, perhaps a moment of perfect grace.
Celebrate and share some wine while taking care not to over indulge.

Six in the Fourth Place

When connected to another inspired by thoughts
that transcend time and space
imagine a white winged horse flying
to your true love.
This is a mutual experience.

Six in the Fifth Place

Walking in the garden you find some one to share your joy.
You want to offer a gift.
Sincerity of feeling is more important than how much you spend.
Your true love understands and does not want more than this.

Nine in the Last place

The state of grace flowers like a blessing from the divine.
