Subtle.

Universal power is a power intrinsic to the universe, the sentient expression of its spiritual wholeness. This power takes the form of a song, flowing with harmonies and rhythms of Love, and exerts a mindful but non-controlling influence on change in the universe. However, coming from the spiritual background, universal power is subtle and difficult to detect above the noise of foreground powers. Universal power is a beacon to harmony in a turbulent world but cannot enforce that harmony.

We are free to exert personal power in control of our lives, but our forcefulness obscures universal power and limits its effect.

We can avoid obscuring universal power by being quiet and using our personal powers judiciously. We can become aware of its influence by attending to subtlety and can actively participate in its song using a very soft touch. Following its influence leads us to Love. Feeling its song intensifies our feelings of Love and participating in its harmonies gives spiritual delight.

With all foreground influences removed, the random fall of coins in a hexagram is an expression of universal power.

The hexagram describes the control of power: Spirituality influences the world but cannot control it. We have personal power because we are not spiritually controlled yet, in exercising it, we constrain the effects of spirituality. Finally, we can control our personal powers so as to allow the expression of universal power in our lives and enhance the spiritual harmony.


Be quiet. Control your power. Look to the subtleties of your situation.

Don't let foreground commotion distract you from giving attention to the more subtle spiritual influences. Find subtlety in Love.

Alternatively, this may be a good time to explore your deeper feelings in search of your spiritual connection. Meditation may be appropriate.

If you are not able to be sufficiently quiet, search out a knowledge that leads to an understanding of subtlety of mind, and refrain from all activity at this time.

It may be helpful to read the hexagrams SPIRITUALITY and POWER.

This interpretation of the hexagram is significantly different to a classical I Ching interpretation. However, universal power is similar to the classical concept of Tao.
