Numinous Spirit is mysteriously active in all things.
Through this spirit change and transformation can occur
And the fates of all things come to their perfection.
Look, there is a spirit within your person.
Now it goes, now it comes.
No one can imagine it.
But if you reverently clean its abode
It will come of itself.
You will recover your own true nature,
It will be fixed in you once for all.
Welcome back to IChingLivingChange.org. Over the last year or so I’ve returned to the Pacific Northwest and its mysterious images, what I consider my creative birthplace. I’ve been working on the Guideways version of Change, which is nearing completion after about 15 years work, and I hope to make it available on the website in the next year or so. I also hope to show you the work, written and visual, that I’ve been doing with what I call the Dream Animals, the animal ancestors and the Beast Face that make up the old world of Change.
When I asked Change what the effect of this work would be, on both individuals and culture, I received 1 Inspiring Force and the Dragon, with transforming lines in the 2nd position, the Inner Center, and the 5th position, the Outer Center.
1 Inspiring Force/Dragon Qian
The Way to the Source is open.
Advantageous to put your ideas to the Trial.
Inspiring Force, the Creator, describes your situation in terms of the primal power of spirit to create and destroy. You are confronted with many obstacles. The way to deal with them is to persist, for you are in contact with fundamental creative energy. Take action. Be dynamic, strong, untiring, tenacious and enduring. Continue on your path and do not be dismayed. Your situation contains great creative potential. It can open up a whole new cycle of time. So ride the power of the dragon and bring the fertilizing rain.
Step 2 Inner Center: This inner re-organization leads to harmony with others.
See the Dragon in the fields!
Advantageous to see the Great People.
Power and virtue is spreading throughout. Creative energy emerges into the lower center. You have the ability to realize things now. Seek those who connect you to the great spirits and trust what is great in yourself.
