25. The Unexpected

Under heaven thunder rolls . . .

Change comes from an unexpected direction. Success will be yours when you meet it with simple openness. There is no need to fear.

……………………………………………………………….

At a time like this, with Covid pandemic-caused changes happening everywhere, it’s only natural to want to curl up in a ball and protect yourself from the next blow of fate. The Yi is telling you, “Don’t resist the latest change. It will be beneficial to you.”

……………………………………………………..

Tomorrow: What is this “latest change?” Perhaps our new reading for March 2, 2021 will tell us.

43. Resolve, Line 5

In dealing with weeds . . .

In dealing with bad habits or negative thoughts, pulling up one “weed,” one time, won’t be enough. You have a row to keep clean in the garden of Life. You must maintain your Resolve and continue removing the weeds, spring to fall.

………………………………………..

Resolve here means “firm determination to do something.” This line reminds us: Sticking to a diet for one day is good, but it’s not enough. You’ve got to keep at it for it to benefit you long-term.

…………………………

Tomorrow: Future reading: “Under heaven thunder rolls . . . “

43. Resolve

It must be announced truthfully. Danger.

Something is wrong, and you need to call attention to it. Not everyone will like that. Be careful, but do it.

……………………………………………………….

Example: You are aware of a major theft by a well-liked fellow employee. You’d rather not rat on the guy, but . . . this is way more than paperclips and pens.

…………………………………..

Tomorrow: Line 5: “In dealing with weeds . . . “

52. Keeping Still

She goes out into her courtyard and does not see her people. No blame.

You need to focus on yourself now. Practice meditation, yoga, go running — whatever allows you to still your thoughts and calm your inner distress. There is no blame in not putting others’ needs first all the time.

………………………………………………………………

Keeping Still is the future message of our main message, The Wanderer. You will cease your wandering, and find a spot to rest. This time will be meant to rejuvenate you, not for you to take care of others. They can fend for themselves.

If you must care for someone full-time, like an infant or elderly parent, find a way to add at least some time that is just yours. You need some balance in your life.

…………………………….

Tomorrow: A new reading for Feb. 26, 2021.

56. The Wanderer, Line 4

She obtains property and an axe. My heart is not glad.

Accumulation of “things” will not make you happy. It will only make you worry more about keeping them.

…………………………………………………………

Line 4 reminds you: By staking out a territory, and using an axe to defend it, you only strengthen your ties to where you are now. Is this where you want to be, forever? The Yi says, “You are meant to be moving on. Don’t tie yourself down to your current situation. You need to be able to move ahead quickly and easily when the time is right.”

……………………..

Tomorrow: “She goes out into her courtyard and does not see her people. No blame.”

56. The Wanderer

You will be moving on.

Take care as you move forward not to enter into — or get dragged into — conflict that is not yours. You have what you need within you, no matter where you go.

…………………………………………………………………………………..

Circumstances are changing rapidly. Where you are now is not where you will be six months from now. The Yi reminds you: you have everything you need to get where you want to go. Don’t squander your energy fighting battles that are not yours.

……………….

Tomorrow: Line 4, our only changing line: “She obtains property and an axe. My heart is not glad.

36. Darkening of the Light

The light has sunk into the earth.

Remember: The sun continues to shine, even when our spot on earth is in shadow. It is the same for you. You must keep your inner light shining through a dark time. It will pass.

……………………………………….

The Covid 19 pandemic is a dark, dark time. So many things that gave our lives structure and meaning have disappeared. But your Inner Truth continues to glow at your core. Don’t let that light be extinguished; feed it and keep it going. The darkness will not last forever.

……………..

Tomorrow: A new reading for Feb. 23, 2021.

37. The Family, Line 6

Her work commands respect.

Only through the cultivation and expression of the highest principles within ourselves can we expect to influence others.

………………………………………………………….

You have done the “right” thing. Others see that, and they respect it. Keep it up.

………………….

Tomorrow: Our future reading: Darkening of the Light

37. The Family, Line 5

As a queen she approaches her family.

A person in a position of leadership and power must use it for the benefit of all, like a wise and benevolent mother.

……………………………………………………………….

You are regarded as the “mom” in your group, regardless of your sex or age. It is your responsibility to use this position wisely.

………………….

Tomorrow: Line 6: Her work commands respect.

37. The Family

Wind comes forth from fire.

When all members of a group fulfill their own roles and contribute to the common good, the energy generated will create its own environment of light and vitality.

…………………………………………………………….

A big fire creates its own weather patterns. In the same way, a group in which each member can do her own thing and contribute to the common good will create an uplift for everybody.

Texans, right now you must look to your most immediate group — your Family –— for support. Contribute your share of heat, and devote yourself to others who will do the same.

Meaning: Sen. Ted Cruz is not a leader, he’s a leech. Texas: Find someone who’ll contribute to the heat, not run off to Cancun to lie in it.

……………………………

The Family is our current main message. We also received two changing lines, Lines 5 and 6. Tomorrow: “As a queen she approaches her family . . . “
