Tranquility in Stillness : December 2023 Hexagram Insights

Quote of the month , based on the hexagram : The Receptive

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like." - Lao Tzu "生命是一系列自然而自发的变化。不要抗拒它们,那只会制造悲伤。让现实成为现实。让事物以它们喜欢的方式自然地流动前进。" - 老子

This month's hexagram is The Receptive , with Kun hexagram, depicting a still mountain atop another Kun hexagram. Known as the 坤为地 "Kun Wei Di" it symbolises a tranquil mountain, advising a period of patience and thoughtful contemplation.

This suggests a shift from reactive to responsive behavior, especially as we approach the year-end and the beginning of 2024, the Wood Dragon Year and beginning of Period 9.

It's an opportune time for deep reflection on Period 8, internalising past experiences to approach the new phase with a fresh perspective. The lesson here is to move away from reactive tendencies, which often rooted in a defensive mindset, cultivate stillness , and responsiveness, which entails openness to the unknown.

This hexagram encourages the exploration of creative possibilities in each day, urging you to distinguish between reaction and response ie mindfulness in response. Engaging your senses, staying present, and shedding preconceptions are key aspects. The underlying cause of this hexagram is linked to over-action, necessitating a period of reflection. Comprising all Yin lines, Kun advocates stillness, observation, and reduced reactivity. By refraining from immediate action, you become a spectator, allowing circumstances to unfold naturally and guide your path.

The divination, advises that the hexagram serves as a crucial guide for those seeking insights on letting go of the past and embracing new times. Key lessons from this guidance are

Observe changes :

  • Observe more and reacting less to life's unfolding events. Recognise situations where change is unavoidable.Respond authentically without the need to defend past actions, allowing the wisdom of the moment to guide your path.

Inner Renewal through Turning Inward:

  • Similar to the transformative nature of autumn, turn inward to renew your inner world. Take charge of your inner landscape, navigating emotional challenges. This internal renewal fosters wellness and harmony, impacting your external reality. Align with the flow by an introspective process.

Balanced Approach: Action and Stillness:

  • Strike a balance between action and stillness, understanding the appropriate timing for both. Navigate life's rhythms by standing in the present moment and observing your reactions. Letting go of reactive tendencies leads to a state of ease and power, moving forward with a sense of purpose.
