“I was wondering how to say something that is very simple, when we live in a world that has become so complex. My solution was to take a reading from the I Ching for our guidance, just when I had emerged from a period of grief and healing myself . . . and felt the need for simplicity.” —Susan
This was the reading … 3 simple small steps to Balance leading to a more heart-centred future for Humanity:
“Small Exceeding: Essence of Wisdom in the Small”
Essence of Wisdom: “In their conduct, wise people give preponderance to reverence . . . in bereavement, they give preponderance to grief. In expenditure, they give preponderance to thrift.” I Ching
“Yin is Flow. Zen is Living Mindfully of Essence. Yin.Zen is my teaching for living with Flow, with reverence for Essence and practising daily with radical Devotion to awaken awareness of Divine Feminine. Small steps to Balance leading to a more heart-centred future for Humanity.”—Susan
Preponderance of the Small
Thunder on the Mountain . . . this is the image of “preponderance of the small”: It is “The Tower Moment” in the Light Seer Tarot deck
Finding Heaven: finding the Goddess
They say “the devil is in the detail” but actually “the angel is in the detail”. . . if we want to find the “angel” in our current situation, the hope, the inspiration, the positivity in a way forward – you may have to accept that there is no way to see what is the truth at the moment, you can’t gain perspective no matter how much you would like to. And each time you attempt to attain this something stops you, being drawn back by a factor which is relatively small and seemingly irrelevant but which somehow seems so important and so pressing, and which contains so many grounds for argument and contention that no further discussion of the wider picture can take place. That’s the devil in the detail.
It’s also where the “Angel” might be found
Keep looking until you see it. Think of the difference between a hologram and a photograph : if you tear off the corner of a picture, that’s all you’ve got. But if you break a hologram then every single piece of the bigger picture is actually contained within the small one. By attending to detail, by getting the factors that you can get right, by drawing other people’s attention to the parallels within the smaller picture and what it might be telling you about the bigger picture, you can gradually create the focus, intention and the understanding which will eventually lead to new appreciation, and the recognition and the sense of progress which is so much required.
I’ll remind you of something from last week:
Which means that there’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way, no ‘perfection’, no ‘ideal’ that we should be trying to attain. The art, is to be able to appreciate the imperfections. This is important to our attitude to our Art of Living: Simply being your best will easily be good enough.
My message from the Flow of Existence [Mother]. If you are drawn to a path such as zen, yoga, as in the whole of Yoga, daoism or Mindfulness, then you’re going back to ancient teachings to go beyond in your life, and you are one of the “Tribe” in my opinion.
