The Image of Heaven Over Earth

Image, Hexagram 12 - I Ching Meditations

The flower of creation dies and I fall from peace into stagnation.
This natural process follows the decay of the product of union.
I die to the world and go inward.
I am numb. I am a shadow.
I am hidden and confused.
I am unconscious and see no light.

It would help me at this time to know that I am a seed
at the beginning of a new awakening.
Yet . . .
I am so much a part of this experience I cannot see.
In the blackness of transformation
I stand still.

I Ching Meditations, Hexagram 12, six in the first place

Six in the First Place

I am the roots and the earth created by the decay of my past blooms.
Only time creates the illusion that soil and flower are not one.
I die to the senses and find inner light.

I Ching Meditatiions, Hexagram 12, line 2

Six in the Second Place

I do not know who or where I am.
I force myself to trust isolation as necessary to a new awakening.

I Ching Meditations, Hexagram 12 six in the third place

Six in the Third Place

I am ashamed of my weakness,
Fear in isolation . . . Crisis in the dark!

I Ching Meditations, Hexagram 12, nine in the 4th place

Nine in the Fourth Place

The time is right.
My highest essence guides me to the light again.
I open and find I am not alone awakening.

I Ching Meditations, Hexagram 12 nine in the fifth place

Nine in the Fifth Place

Moving from darkness into light
I am blind in fear that I have not the strength to flower.
Slowly . . . I become aware and realize
My soul is as organic as all life,
My re-birth  as mysterious and inevitable as death.

I Ching Meditations, Hexagram 12 nine in the last place

Nine in the Last Place

I  work consciously to return to creativity.
In that darkness of standing sill I discover stagnation and creation
Are two parts of the whole, each always moving into the other.

    We all know by now, that when you make a habit of connecting with potential customers
    little and often, on topics that they care about, you increase the likelihood
    of them doing business with you. While that mantra may
    have worked for Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams,” it doesn’t necessarily
    work for credit union websites. The “following” and “followers” selection operates
    in the same fashion as Google+ and Twitter.

    Soil and flower … soul and power … are indeed one.

    Gorgeous, Adele.

    One of the mantra-questions I ask myself at certain times is, “Generation or Stagnation?” …
