An inner presence.
The hexagram describes an attraction between opposites, an inner
connection between things that are externally separate or different, making them whole without
obscuring or restricting their diversity. That everything in the universe is inwardly connected in such
an unobtrusive whole is the Oracle's
paradigm for spirituality.
Inner connections are not discernable from
the outside, though their indirect effects may be. Inner connections develop and change
independently of external connections,
but may be constrained by them.
The spiritual whole is ethereal, ephemeral and unobtrusive and also present in the world.
As separate beings we are not directly aware of each other's inner connections.
We are rarely aware of our own and how
their significance in our lives varies.
But by attending to the feelings of Love within us
we can each become aware
of our own inner connections, tune them and tune in with them, and so come to recognise the spiritual presence
and experience the universal spiritual connection.
We can connect with the world by what we feel inside as well as by what we do outside.
Spiritual awareness is an engrossing feeling, not a detached observation.
Spiritual awareness is thus subjective and external
representations of spirituality
are necessarily incomplete.
Religious texts, icons or rituals, great leaders, art, music or ideas,
may direct us inward to an experience of spirituality but are of themselves not it. Nothing external
is the key to finding it.
Every being can find their own inner experience of spirituality.
