“ Here we have union as an enduring condition. The two images are thunder and wind, which are likewise constantly paired phenomena. The lower three lines indicates gentleness within; the upper three lines, movement without.
In the sphere of social relationships the six lines represent the institution of marriage as the enduring union of the sexes.
Duration. Success. No blame.
It furthers someone to have somewhere to go.
Duration. Is a state whose movement is not worn down by hindrances. It is not a state of rest, for mere standstill is regression. Duration is rather the self- contained and therefore self-renewing movement of an organized, firmly integrated whole, taking place in accordance with immutable laws and beginning anew at every ending. The end is reached by an inward movement, by inhalation, systole, contraction, and this movement turns into a new beginning, in which the movement is directed outward, in exhalation, diastole, expansion.
Duration brings about firmness and unity of character. Lasting perseverance in one’s course. The course of heaven and earth is enduring and long and never ends. An end is always followed by a new beginning.
The holy man remains forever in his course, and the world reshapes itself to completion. If we meditate on what gives duration to a thing, we can understand the nature of heaven and earth and of all beings.
Heavenly bodies exemplify duration. They move in their fixed orbits, and because of their light-giving power endures. The seasons of the year follow a fixed law of change and transformation, hence can produce effects that endure.
So likewise the dedicated man embodies an enduring meaning in his way of life, and thereby the world is formed. In that which gives things their duration, we can come to understand the nature of all beings in heaven and on earth.
On the basis of the Judgment, the conditions necessary for duration are then set forth. They consist in perseverance in the right course, that is to say, continuity in change. This is the secret of the eternity of the universe.
Thunder and wind: the image of DURATION.
Thus the superior man stands firm
And does not change his direction.
...the independence of the superior man is not based on rigidity and immobility of character. He always keeps abreast of the time and changes with it. What endures is the unswerving directive, the inner law of his being, which determines all his actions.
Thunder is that which is mobile, wind is that which is penetrating- the most mobile of all things that have duration under the law of motion. The image of standing firm and fixed direction.
Remember: Christ- mas means Love More
Peace, light and love,
One who knows.
