Good Morning H-19

Hexagram 23

Bookmark and Share 

I. The Oracle 

A. Hexagram twenty-three is related to or has reference to Peeling Off, hence, the splitting apart of something.

Another variation would be the idea of peeling off something such as an onion to get to the core of the origin. The time is not correct for drastic movements in any direction; at best stay still and wait on the will of heaven. Again, there is no advantage in whatever direction one might take at this time, if you do, take it slow.
   1. Now is not a good time to cross the great water. I say that because as the image depicts, that of the mountain which sits upon the earth. There is no movement with this instance. There is some headway if one recognizes that like the mountain keeping still fares well at this time and yield to the times of meditation and planning for upcoming strategic activities.
   2. Splitting Apart:
This is the times of Falling Apart. One must at most strengthen his or her present position by strengthening those below, that way peace and stability are ensured. Remember, the mountain has for its support the earth, in order to fortify the foundation of the mountain, it will fare well to ensure that the density of the earth, or else there will be a collapse. Help from above fortifies the foundation. The bottom of the barrel supports the contents.

B. The Image

  1. Mountain sitting on the earth
      a) In whatever you do expect little movement, except when ensuring the plans of others
      b) Thus there is no advantage in whatever direction movement is made, unless you are just lucky, the four leaf clover

II. My interpretation 

A. There is a tendency for things to collapse at this time; no matter how well planned the objectives. It’s just not the time. Again, all I can see for today is go nowhere, do nothing, take no action whatever at this time the best resolve is to ensure the plans of others, forego your own plans until a later date.

   1. Again, now is not a good time to cross the great river, in plain words, there will be going and coming with some loss. The hexagram has more to do with that bad dream you had last night, and trust me, I know you did. As the hexagram denotes while one is asleep there is an attempt to say one of the legs of the bed by a prankster, hence, interference of sleep or a bad dream so to speak. I did too. The core of your body is at work doing homeostasis at this time. That could be the reason for the hexagram warnings against any kind of activities at this time. Most hexagrams have the effects of three days before, and three days after an indicated change. In three days there are two things about to happen, an eclipse and the spring equinox. Remember, that there is no success in seeking any destinations at this time. The weak prevail over the strong and correct. The superior person recognizes the effects of time and adheres to the fact that at this time within the continuum the inferior men will at this time be predominating.

(Update 7-8-2019) Splitting apart sort of reminds one of an EarthQuake. It recalls the situation of the bell curve and degrees of movement, in this incident, there are three days before and three days after the main event.

(Update 3-15-2020) Being modest about my stuff today, really taking it somewhat slow for a moment as we move through the pandemic. They are calling it Corona Virus 19. That number finally means approach as if that means anything. the number after that means contemplation, do that, and the number before that means working on that which is spoiled.

Good Morning H-53



Hexagram 53

Bookmark and Share

by James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram fifty-three parallels that of self-development, or just plain old developmental change.  The situation is named Jian or infiltrating. Additional variations are just as I have noted, development, gradual progress, and advancement. The lower trigram is gen: bound or mountain. The upper trigram is xun: wind.    

   1. Development, The maiden is given in marriage.
        Good fortune brings good fortune.
   2. Perseverance furthers.

B. The Image

  1. On the mountain, a tree.
      a) Now we can see the image of developmental growth.
      b) Thus the superior man abides in dignity and virtue,

          in order to improve the mores.

II. My interpretation 

A. “Development

Good day to get out there and exercise, and enjoy the outdoors as it develops into spring. All-day we see progress in our right now evolving environment. We are now moving from the notion of hexagram fifty-three to that of hexagram fifty-four the marriageable maiden. But in this instant, we must quickly marry the young maiden, not so much in the next hexagram 54. We should be cultivating for the next phase when it comes to the hexagram that follows the current one, keynote marriage.

As we progress towards the goal of meeting spring mornings, let us not forget the people who fell out of formation during our yearly flights from the fall to spring again. The flight through the last couple of months of winter has been stop-and-go but we are at this successful point. Now is a good time to lighten the load on our old pack mules. give a little, even if it’s money, but giving a little of your time is more crucial. Just showing face brightens the day of a lot of people unaware of the effects of Qi, live it and give it.

Good Morning H-36



Hexagram 36

Bookmark and Share 

by James Byrd

I. The Oracle 

A. Hexagram thirty-six is related to Diminishing of the Light, hence, retreating and hiding one’s true intellectual position.

Another variation would be just as the Sun hides its brilliance at times, so should the Superior person during times of difficulties. Hence, it furthers one to be persevering. It can be said that the superior man lives with the great masses, yet he vails his light, still the same it shines.
   1. Now is not a good time to cross the great water. It furthers one to be persevering.
   2. Darkening of the Light:
With this we see the superior man managing others to the degree that he is somewhat proving his intelligence by keeping quiet about the situation he is in at the moment.

B. The Image

  1. The Sunset behind the Earth
      a) Keep to your course
      b) During these times, be aware of the difficulties ahead.

II. My interpretation 

A. I remember a gigantic experience I have had during the observance of My Calendar of Days, and that was on February 15, 2013. I am speaking of that rock that landed on earth at that time. And we are still looking at that trend today 2-14-2020. It made me take notice that the calendar operates somewhat like that of the standard bell curve graph in statistics; anywhere near the peak one can expect a paralleling probability or a related effect that relates directly with the calendar given with “Foretell the Future with the I Ching and My Calendar of Days”. In some books this hexagram relates to injury and will appear four times a year on My Calendar of Days; Feb. 14, July 17, August 7, and November 14. The way I see it, it falls at the start of spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

   1. The main idea is that at times it is best to take a back seat and enjoy the ride, but try not to be a backseat driver, so to speak. It is a time for you to submit to the dark principle, but do it to the tune of maintaining the personal principles you hold inside of you. In short, do not sit out on the tree limb and saw the log. Remember, that morals are just morals to people who profess them; across the board, those morals may not be the prevailing sentiments of all mankind at the current time, but thanks to the internet we are getting there, hence, innovative technologies. The hexagram maintains that a person should realize the situation they are in at the moment and maintain a firm steadiness to their beforehand planned course, or should I say, maintain your Inward Principles. The same can be seen with Hexagram 6, talking leads to conflict. Now we take six times six to a higher octave, and we see, “keep your fears to yourself.” It is better to configure your innermost feelings in such a way that you might come across as being gentle and accepting of others, less, there will be compound conflict at the present moment.
Despite troubles within your heart, fix your will on extruding that which is righteous. Be agreeable in the face of immeasurable difficulties. So find a quiet place and wait it out. Three days before, and three days after the turmoil. We are at about top-dead-center right now. Low key it today folks.
