I CHING Kua 53 has to do with DEVELOPMENT, gradual progress, slowly but surely or as my grandmother used to say, “little by little”. Another one we often hear is “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
This is the second time I’ve received a message about progress; the last time it was “progress over the next few months”. Today, the message has to do with success being assured.
Where or how do these messages apply to you in your own life? The answer applies to your own question around life conditions.
I think economically when I think of this message; the condition of our economy in the United States is of grave concern to many.
My prediction, if you want to call it that is that things will get better and success will be achieved. Yet, there is a caveat and that has to do with the message of this Kua today and the associated Tarot and Astrology correlations.
Essentially on must keep one’s attention in the present moment and avoid dreaming about future. The reason being, the more we can stay with “what is”, the less likely it will be that we will be thrown off-balance by the unexpected. We must all keep our cool despite current delays or setbacks.
We cannot throw up our hands and say, “I quit” because we need this time as a vital learning experience. We must accept current challenges and not lose ourselves in a future that is not yet manifest.
Today the message is to be willing to look truth of the moment straight in the eye and feel supported rather than fearful.
I can’t help but think of the word “psychic” whenever I see the word “development”. Development is the name of this I CHING Kua… actually, some books call it “Gradual Development”.
Things that develop slowly become more strong and enduring—perseverance and determined effort is required. Yet, too much determination can sometimes be detrimental—it is rather a matter of uniting with energy and dancing gently with it.
While it is an easy energy or gentle energy merging that I’m referring to, and while it is important to be in the now with it and not compare it with past or future, it does require focus to detail. Yet, the idea is not to hurry or force.
Progress comes from giving attention in the moment to detail but without undue pressure or stress. This is much like it is when speaking with spirit guides or communication from the other side as part of psychic development.
The key phrase today is like air over mountain (the elements of this Kua), gradual progress. It is gradual so that details can be perfected and so patience is required now.
It makes me think about walking or biking through an area rather than driving in a car. I used to drive to work and then began jogging to work instead for a while being amazed at all the small details of the area I missed while driving. It’s like that—there is much more to be seen and integrated when working at a slower and more detailed pace.
