Things Are Not What They Seem

Sometimes, things are not what they seem.
The message was strong.
I was awakened at 5:30 a.m.
Hearing clearly that I must check the message 
by reading the I Ching for the date and time. 

The message was so pertinent to our days in which we now live.

There was the image of a face, “masked by a beard”.

Looking upon the person, 
All one tended to see was “the beard” –

and for many, it was “the beard” that defined the person.

Yet, in reality, “the beard” is controlled by the movement of the jaw.

“Who is the person behind that beard?”

Who is the person behind the mask?

 It is important to KNOW the Essence of the Person,

Not just the outer adornment.

 Today, there are “masks” in many forms

camouflaging the reality of the person.

 Can we see beyond the mask?
This is message of gua 22 Grace, Line 2.
   

 

White is Light – Light is Truth

these Times We Are In,   April 12 – April 18, 2020,
the I Ching advises the following for the USA:

This is a period of time calling for sincerity and truthfulness.  

 There are two images:   

1.  A person bent over, carrying a heavy load.  

2.  the “person at the top” (the President . . . )  in the “act of walking away”.   Additionally, there is a woman walking away, 

— “walking away”–

a symbol of falseness.  

 ****

The I Ching states:  

“the wisdom of holding to the truth – 

no matter how  situations change, 

truthfulness never changes.”  

****

 .  . . What is important is whether one’s attitude  and motivation are aligned with the virtues of Heaven. 

What is considered first 

is not the reward one will attain, 

but whether the work is really good for humanity.”  

****

 . . . . There are lessons to be learned from decay 

. . . if one’s intention, especially that of a leader, 

is not truthful he will fall into error.   

 Nothing will be favorable for him.  

 “Even if truthfulness encounters misfortune, 

one should remain steadfast and upright.” 

This is the sacred message

for these days we are living now.

 We need to hold Truth as the highest measure.  

Flowers are beginning to bloom,

and this morning it is snowing in New England.

In art, “white” is “light”.

Light is Truth.
****
Synchronicity – The message of the I Ching for these days,
White falling from the skies
Light – Truth!
****

Consider the opening statement, the two images:  

Someone Carrying a Heavy Burden. 

And the “Top Leader Walking Away”.

“Walking Away – a symbol of falsehood.

The Top Leader of the USA is the President.

Yesterday, April 17, 2020,

The President of the USA, “Walked-Away”.

He declared USA was ready to start returning to to normal — to come out of “staying apart to avoid spreading the Covid-19 Virus”.  

But, he placed the “heavy burden of the decision of doing this directive – of whether to do it, and when to do it,” upon the “backs of the governors”.  He did so, and echoing his earlier words,
“I am not responsible”,  The President “walked away”.

And the I Ching said:

 . . . . There are lessons to be learned from decay 

. . . if one’s intention, especially that of a leader, 

is not truthful he would fall into error.   

 Nothing would be favorable for him.

 “Even if truthfulness encounters misfortune, 

one should remain steadfast and upright.” 

Snow is Falling.

White – Light – Falls

Illuminating the Call for Truth.

 

This is synchronicity. 

For synchronicity to occur, 

everything in the Universe must be perfectly aligned.

An Important Message.

Namaste!

I-Ching Study of the USA:  April 19 – 24, 2020

Drawing by Rev. Mary Ann Tourjee

Insight from the I Ching Reading of the USA

The text focuses on the Leader of the Country – Our President:

It states that the main hindrance for the USA

is the standard by which the President appoints people:

appointing people by favoritism 

rather than by merit and ability.  

The text further states that the worst thing 

is for the President to appoint petty persons and to accept their slander.

The focal line for this period suggests

that the USA can get through this time of hindrance.

How?

Much depends upon the President and his attitude. 

I Ching:  Gua 12, Line 2:  Hindrance. 
This gua appears  for April 19 – 24, and again Nov 26 – Dec 1, 2020.
