Beach I Ching 11

                #42 Yi       Blessing, Increase

#42 Yi
Blessing, Increase

Wilhelm calls this hexagram “the fundamental idea of I Ching.”

“If he sees good, he imitates it;
If he has faults, he rids himself of them.”

“Do not be selfish with your good fortune.  Spread your wealth.  When you are generous to others you are being generous to yourself as well.”  (ichingmeditations.com)

“A kind heart does not make demands or ask for recognition.”  (divination.com)

This is a joyful hexagram of inspiration and abundance.  But, as dreamhawk.com cautions:  “Hexagram 42 shows the need to be generous with the abundance we have been able to collect.”

Wilhelm again:
“To rule truly is to serve.”
“Increase of what is below at the cost of what is above is out-and-out increase, because it benefits the whole people.”

…Congress?  Anyone in charge out there listening…?

I still have beach i chings from 2014 left to complete, but I did do a new set of photos this year at the beach.  They are very different in both shells used and feel.  At first look, I’m not as happy with them, but we’ll see what happens when it comes time to really examine and explore them.

In the meantime, I’m off for a long weekend of family visiting.  Back next week.

    It isn’t that Congress is listening or not. It is who they are listening to.

    Bonne chance! Léa
