Beach I Ching 15

#30  Li  Fire

Clarity–
illuminating
fire with fire–
transforming
intersections of endings–
beginning to rise

I was amazed to see that it’s been almost a year since my last Beach I Ching post.  I’ve been working on this one for awhile, though.  The symbol of fire has shown up a lot for me this year.  Li is a doubling of fire, reflecting its dual nature of creation and destruction.  This hexagram is also called Radiance, Clarity, Sun, Transformation–it has many manifestations.  The Chinese characters are also sometimes said to resemble a bird captured in a net.

    I’m fascinated with how collage can be interpreted in so many different ways. I reviewed your past Beach I Ching posts. Thank you for the link.

    I like how you combined your painted bird – which is gorgeous!! With your collage papers. And I like your beach treasures and how you have arranged them. “Transforming intersections of endings,” l like how you said this, Kerfe. 😊

    I like the idea of fire lighting and also transforming–and then of course, we could be transformed by the light, too.
