I Ching Oracle reading Hexagram #27
The Corners of the Mouth (Providing Nourishment)
Above Ken Keeping Still, Mountain
Below Chen The Arousing, Thunder
I find this hexagram perplexing and I don’t quite understand two of the three changing lines; ie, six in the 2nd place and 6 in the 3rd place which conflicts with 9 at the top. I will soul search the two lower lines and try to understand what they mean.
“He who cultivated the inferior parts of his nature is an inferior man. He who cultivated the superior parts of his nature is a superior man...thus the superior man is careful of his words and temperate in eating and drinking.”
Let me summarize the hexagram.
“Perseverance brings good fortune.
Pay heed to the providing of nourishment...
In bestowing care and nourishment, it is important that the right people should be taken care of and that we should attend to our own nourishment in the right way...This is an image of providing nourishment through movement and tranquility. The superior man takes it as a pattern for the nourishment and cultivation of character.
Nine at the top means:
The source of nourishment.
Awareness of danger brings good fortune.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
This describes a sage of the highest order, from whom emanate all influences that provide nourishment for others. Such a position brings with it heavy responsibility. If he remains conscious of this fact, he has good fortune and may confidently undertake even great and difficult labors, such as crossing the great water. These undertakings bring general happiness for him and for others.”
The three changing lines of 6 in the 2nd place, 6 in the 3rd place and 9 at the top created the follow up 11th hexagram of peace/Tai formed by the first and second hexagrams of the I Ching. The 1st/Chien/Heaven/The Creative and the 2nd, K’un/Receptive.
“...The meaning of the hexagram is that what is above and what is below are UNITED and of ONE will...Good conduct, then contentment; thus, calm prevails. Hence there follows the hexagram of PEACE. Peace means UNION, interrelation.
The Chinese word t’ai is not easy to translate. It means contentment, rest, peace, in the positive sense of unobstructed complete union, bringing about a time of flowering and greatness.... good fortune. Success...In this way heaven and earth unite, and all beings come into union. Upper and lower unite and they are of one will...The small departs, the great approaches.
The movement of the hexagram as a whole produces finally a victorious ascendancy of the principles of the good man and a withdrawal and defeat of the principles of inferior men.
None of this occurs arbitrarily; it is born of the time...both in the year and in history, that is represented by this hexagram.
Heaven and earth unite: the image of PEACE. Thus, the ruler divides and completes the course of heaven and earth;
He furthers and regulates the gifts of heaven and earth,
And so, aids the people...”
“Peace, unity and union” are diametrically and cosmically opposed to the “whore of Babylon” that represents the “confusion” and chaos of the “end of days” of the “end times” marked by the the “inferior man” of the Trump administration.
This Oracle reading confirms that the global shift in consciousness to “peace, unity and union” has already happened and is just waiting for recognition on the world stage and in the media; ie the actual manifestation.
God has already appointed the day and “hour” when this global event occurs and the waiting ends. The “chaos” that is on the news now on a daily basis is the barometer for this change.
Follow up hexagram.
Chien/Heaven/Creative below. “The course of the Creative alters and shapes beings until each attains it’s true, specific nature, then it keeps them in conformity with the Great Harmony...”
“In relation to the human sphere, this shows how the great man brings peace and security to the world through his activity in creating order.” ‘He towers high above the multitude of beings, and all lands are UNITED in PEACE...the will of heaven...made to prevail on earth...Li(nature in its radiance) was the CORNERSTONE upon which Confucius built his effort to BRING ORDER OUT OF CHAOS in his era.”
Isaiah 28:16 - “Therefore thus says the Lord God. ‘Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a FOUNDATION, a tried stone, a precious CORNERSTONE, a sure FOUNDATION.”
Ephesians 2:20,21 - “Jesus (Christ) Himself being the chief CORNERSTONE.”
Since Christ means Love, it is Love that is the foundation of the universe.
Peace, light and love,
One who knows.
