The Chinese word lin has a range of meanings that is not exhausted by any single word of another language. The ancient explanations in the Book of Changes give as its first meaning, "becoming great."
What becomes great are the two strong lines growing into the hexagram from below; the light-giving power expands with them. The meaning is then further extended to include the concept of approach, especially the approach of what is strong and highly placed in relation to what is lower.
Finally the meaning includes the attitude of condescension of a man in high position toward the people, and in general the setting to work on affairs. This hexagram is linked with the twelfth month (January–February), when, after the winter solstice, the light power begins to ascend again.
The earth above the lake:
The image of APPROACH.
Thus the superior man is inexhaustible
In his will to teach,
And without limits
In his tolerance and protection of the people.
"This hexagram is linked with the twelfth month (January–February), when, after the winter solstice, the light power begins to ascend again."
You may think I chose this Hexagram .. but I didn't chose it .. the Hexagram 19. LIN chose me .. in association with my insight into the phase called: Mind Transformance.
The Mind Transforms
Between now [12.12.2012] and the Winter Solstice [21.12.2012] a window of transition opens where humans are affected by unseen energies - good and bad.
Our inherant natures are magnets to psychic energies similar in frequency to our thoughts. Being jealous or wishing people harm bring negative energies to bear upon ourselves.
Being of good mind and cultivating a good and balanced nature surrounds us with energies aligned with high spirits and good intentions. Our state of mind actively cooks the psychic energetic food we eat or absorb. How we use our mind is how we cook "our food".
If an animal dies a cruel death and we eat parts of that animal, we digest and absorb the fear. There is a lot of decay in the cruel death of an animal. But if we follow the rules of nature we would not harm animals in the way we do.
What comes around goes around...
What humans do to animals they do to themselves!
Between now and the Winter Solstice, energies of transition and transformation are criss-crossing the Earth. Enegetically, this is the beginning of a new era.
It is so strange that people are "afraid" of the ending of life on Earth in December 2012 .. because we just came though 2,000 years of the worst period .. the darkest period in terms of our SPIRIT and loss of humanity.
Humans just survived the "darkest period" / the "darkest hour". The real danger was the last 2,000 years of wars .. destruction of our planet .. destroying Native peoples to take over their land and resources. I mean! The darkest hour is behind us .. we have survived it...
If planetary tranformation is to be feared .. then I seriously need to immigrate back to the Pleiades. Life on Planet Earth is not ending .. it is beginning.
I Ching: Becoming Great
When times are hard and difficult .. always keep in mind that the dark leads to the light and the light leads to the dark. Hard becomes soft and soft becomes hard. The water in a river can freeze and become hard. The ice covering a river can melt and become soft.
Nothing lasts forever !!
To have a balanced mind, one simply pays attention and suspends judgement. One observes the nature of things and the movement of energy. Observing ones own nature .. one learns. Truth is not static, but it moves ahead like a bright lantern in deepest darkness.
Life is constantly changing... from our perspective.
Tonight, I saw the Constellation of Orion rising sideways into the night sky. I usually notice Orion when the stars are higher above in the night sky. It's all a matter of perspective. Where you stand - who you are - what you see.
Winter Solstice 2012 - February 28, 2013
Okay! So! December 2012 will come and go as we enter the early phase of 2013 January/February moving towards March and April...
When you seriously pay attention to the December 12 / December 21 transition .. then the sensitivity of awareness is like an inner psychic antenna for the energies forming in January-February 2013.
Your brain does not remember your experience in the womb before you are born .. because the experience is pure energy as the physical body is forming. Your womb experience was "spirit energy" .. it was not physical. This period of transition is the same.
Linear Though Is Afraid of Change
Why are some people around the world afraid of some kind of catastrophic ENDING ?? Some kind of Mayan Calendar catastrophe. When perhaps .. you personally are not afraid? It is ENERGY versus ego-thought!! Linear thought is afraid of change.
Like in the womb .. the human and planetary transition is energy. This is something we do not remember in terms of rational thinking or thought. It is not people who are "afraid" .. it is thought who is afraid.
Energy does not fear energy .. energy understands energy at any level .. at any frequency. Energy is not fear. Energy cannot experience fear. We are transitioning into the period/zone of energy .. which is SPIRIT.
If you have lower energy and higher energy .. this has nothing to do with fear. Thought - divided from spirit - creates fear. Oh! I am afraid of dying! I am afraid of ending! I am afraid of death!
Sure! Thought is afraid of ending = death .. because thought is limited and comes to an end in the same way physical life comes to an end when the life cycle is reached.
Love transforms the mind!
