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.


There is a significant a spiritual presence.

Honour the presence with Love.

This is a good time to examine your deeper feelings and explore your spiritual connection.

Alternatively, the hexagram may be indicating that a matter you are concerned with is also of spiritual concern, or that the source of the concern is spiritual.




This interpretation of the hexagram is substantially different to a classical I Ching understanding.
