Wisdom from I Ching

Lately something drew my attention to I Ching.  Who needs western esoteric teachings that draped in secrecy when you have eastern book of wisdom right at hand? ;-)  Got a book on I Ching by Wu Wei (is his name really 无为?).  A list of I Ching sayings that the author gave his interpretation.  To me most of the wisdom is nothing new, but there a few that's are especially relevant/resonate I copied down:

People of true understanding nourish sages and through them, nourish the whole world.

When two people are at one in their inmost hearts, they shatter even the strength of iron or of bronze.

Natural law is easy to follow because it operates along the path of least resistance.

It is who we think we are who speaks and acts -- not who we are.

Everything clings to that which gives it life.  

Rest must follow activity if energy is to be renewed.

Universal law provides that everything changes except Universal law.

Catastrophe is a Universal tap on the shoulder.  
-- (from the author:) The wisest person feels reverence at those times and examines his life to see if his affairs are in order and if he is living the life of the superior person.  That is the great value of those events.

Great and difficult goals are accomplished in simple, easy steps.  

Events are the language of the Universe.

He sets limitations for himself within which he experiences complete freedom.

He sees opposition as a signpost deflecting him in the right direction.

Only through daily self-renewal of character can you continue at the height of your powers.

I Ching talks about the superior person, which I think is the equivalent of the "adept" that Ra speaks of in Law of One.  It is the person I strive to be.

Bottom of the cycle and a full moon (!)  The day started out kinda low.  tt woke up way early in the morning for seeming no reason.  didn't feel particularly inspired.  But things got better, I think I got all the synchs from 1s to 5s.  I did notice I seem to get more of them when I'm in lower position of the cycle.  I love when my kids help out with my synchs: "mom, what time is it?" "why, it's 4:44" "hey mom, it's my favorite time 5:55" :-)

Got a book on I Ching.  Who need the esoteric western mystic stuff when there's the thousands year old Chinese knowledge right at hand? ;-)  Unfortunately none of it was passed on to me through my education.  Just more things to learn :-)

Bottom of the cycle

I'm one day away from the bottom of the 18-day cycle.  I notice like last time when I was around the bottom, I feel hungry a lot, start to have a really big appetite.  I think it must be that when my natural ability to raise my vibrations are low, I need much more energy to do the work of reaching to higher levels...

To start the morning, from the car clock display time of who-knows-where: 5:55.  Later on 11:11, 1:11, 2:22, ... I'm going to stop logging these synchs, may just note when they are absent.  I also start noticing other type of synch.. ;-)
A few days ago I pointed out a comment to me was posted a 5:55 my time, and later asked when would the person notice such synchs.  Today when the person plus'ed my g+ post, I realized my post was displayed at 5:55 his time.  (not sure if he noticed though :)

Had a long night of sleep, 9 hours.  Just what I needed.  :-)

The day before the year of snake

My right heel felt bruised, it really hurts when I put weight on it, cannot really walk bare foot on that foot anymore.  I wonder what is the mind/spirit working that resulted in this physical manifestation?  Have I been preaching too much of my right-handed ways?  I guess it feels more like a sharp edged rock I've been stumping on, reminded me of Ra's expression "We have come up against the full stop of free will."  Maybe it's an indication that I haven't been effective in my workings and I need to do something different to make progress.

Speaking of stumping on rocks, I did have to stump really hard to remove that old piece of tree stump a couple of days ago.  Maybe I kicked it more than I thought I did and really hurt my heel...

synchs of the day 11:11, 2:22, and 5:55 :-)

New year's eve activities in the evening reminded me all the good things I love about this life, and tears along with it.  I'm feeling pensive.

instance of synchronicity

It's probably not terribly important, but today I noticed 4:44 and 5:55. :-)

Passages and Mantras for Meditation

From Conquest of Mind:

1. Opening of Buddha's Twin Verses.  Taken from Dhammapada: 

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought: we are formed and molded by our thoughts.  Those whose minds are shaped by selfish thoughts cause misery when they speak or act.  Sorrow roll over them like the wheels of a cart follow the hooves of the bullock that draws it.  

All that we are is the result of what we have thought: we are formed and molded by our thoughts.  Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act.  Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them. "

2. Prayer from Saint Francis of Assisi.

"Dear God, make me the instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
Where there is sadness, joy."

"O Divine Maters, grant me that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love.  
For that it's in giving that we receive
It is in forgiving that we are forgiven
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.

From Joe's video:

3. Protection prayer
"Mighty God surrounds me, love of God enfolds me, power of Gold protects me, presence of God watches over me, where ever I am, God is, and always will."

4. The Lord's prayer

"Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespassed against us;
lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

5. "God, give ___ my/his/her own unconditional love"

6. Hoʻoponopono
"I'm sorry, I love you, forgive me, thank you"

From this video and "Yoga - yoga, tantra and mediation in daily life" by Swami Janakananda

7. Mantra for Chakra cleansing, from bottom to top
