Significant spiritual presence.
The hexagram describes a connection between opposites,
joining things that are separate or different to make a whole but in a way
that does not obscure or restrict their diversity.
That everything in the universe holds together in such
a diverse and unobtrusive whole is the Oracle's
paradigm for spirituality.
The universal spirit is sentient in that it feels its connections and influences them - but it
does not control them. The spiritual presence is a mindful but
background connection of everything.
We are rarely aware of such unobtrusive connections and how
their significance in our lives varies yet they are sensed and responded to by our
feelings of Love. In this way
we connect with the world by what we feel as well as by what we do and say.
At their deepest and most sincere, our feelings of Love coincide with the spiritual feeling
and by turning our attention to these feelings
we can find our spiritual connection.
Spiritual awareness is a palpable feeling of universal connectedness.
The spiritual influence is
always a background to more obtrusive foreground influences, but at times it
is proportionately more significant than at others.
At these times of greater significance it becomes more apparent to us,
our spiritual feelings near the surface of our consciousness
and we become more closely aligned with the sensibilities of the universal spirit.
The Oracle reflects the spiritual influence and guides us to
behaviour considerate of spiritual feeling. Being considerate of
spiritual feeling promotes the
spiritual presence in our lives and assists our quest for spiritual awareness.
But the words and hexagrams of this Oracle, together with
all religious books, symbols, rituals, teachings, art, music and ideas,
are indirect representations of spirituality.
They may lead us to spirituality but by themselves are not it -
our deepest feelings of Love are it.
No representation is mandatory for spiritual experience.
Every being can find their own direct experience of spirituality.
